Turkey Orders FSA To Withdraw From Frontlines With Manbijhttps://southfront.org/turkey-orders-fsa-to-withdraw-from-frontlines-with-manbij/ – “According to the pro-opposition news agency, Ankara backed-off from its plans to attack the strategic city, which is held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), as a result of the high-level Russia-Turkish meeting that was held in Moscow two days ago… Earlier this week, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced its withdrawal from Manbij and called on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to protect the city from Turkey’s threats. The army responded within few hours and deployed a large force in the outskirt of the strategic city.” – Comment: This is a VERY hopeful sign in the current Syrian situation.

Pending Home Sales Crash 7.7%, Biggest Drop In Four Years – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-28/pending-home-sales-crash-77-biggest-drop-four-years – “There was some hope for a rebound in US housing indicators, after the recent existing home sales print rebounded, but that was promptly dashed after pending home sales dropped again in November, sliding -0.7% vs the expected 1.0% increase, declining in six of the last eight months, with a cumulative loss since March of -5.9% (-8.9% annualized)… …and crashed a whopping 7.7% compared to last year, the biggest annual drop since April 2014… Always eager to put lipstick on a pig, commenting on the collapse NAR chief economist Larry Yun said ‘the latest decline in contract signings implies more short-term pullback in the housing sector and does not yet capture the impact of recent favorable conditions of mortgage rates.’ ” – Comment: “favorable conditions of mortgage rates” (?!) WTF is Yun talking about? The FED just raised interest rates for the 4th time this year, for a total of 1% interested added on top of a 30 mortgage. Buyers are staying away in droves.

Syria Celebrates, West Ignores – by Finian Cunningham – https://sputniknews.com/columnists/201812261071009577-syria-daesh-peace/ – “Take the people of Syria. After nearly eight years of horrific war, the nation is this year rejoicing the arrival of Christmas and the opportunity to show goodwill to their compatriots. Orthodox Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7, but the festivities are underway. It’s wonderful to see how Syrians of all religions, or none, share in this holiday season. Their smiles are their gifts… As in this classic John Lennon Christmas song from 1971, the people of Syria can surely show heartfelt thanks that “war is over” — or at least largely over, enough to allow them to congregate on the streets of their major cities and towns to celebrate in peace. How fantastic is that!.. Yet none of these current joyous occasions in Syria are reported by Western news media. US media seem obsessed to report on President Donald Trump’s awkward phone call with a seven-year-old American girl in which he wondered if she still believes in Santa. Meanwhile, Britain’s BBC aired supposedly feel-good reports about two brown bears relocated from Japan to a zoo in England, and the birth of a giraffe… An important part of the West’s vile charade was exposed on December 20 when a United Nations conference heard from a range of speakers on the crimes committed by the so-called White Helmets against civilians. Expert testimony was given by investigative British journalist Vanessa Beeley as well as Russian ambassador Vasily Nebenzia, among others… As Canadian journalist Eva Bartlett points out, not one Western media news outlet reported on the irrefutable, comprehensive evidence presented at the conference, showing how the White Helmets were complicit in committing violations against civilians with the support of Western governments in premeditated propaganda stunts.”

Trump Scores, Breaks Generals’ 50-Year War Record – His national security team had been trying to box him in like every other president. But he called their bluff – by Gareth Porter – https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/trump-scores-breaks-generals-50-year-war-record-syria-mattis-dunford/ – “Mattis and Dunford were consciously exploiting Trump’s defensiveness about a timeline to press ahead with their own strategy unless and until Trump publicly called them on it. That is what finally happened some weeks after Trump’s six month deadline had passed. The claim by Trump advisors that they were taken by surprise was indeed disingenuous. What happened last week was that Trump followed up on the clear policy he had laid down in April…. Trump is now well aware that it is virtually impossible to carry out the foreign policy that he wants without advisors who are committed to the same objective. That means that he must find people who have remained outside the system during the permanent war years while being highly critical of its whole ideology and culture. If he can fill key positions with truly dissident figures, the last two years of this term in office could decisively clip the wings of the bureaucrats and generals who have created the permanent war state we find ourselves in today.”

Noose Tightens Around Kratom – FDA Attacks Mount and DEA Moves Closer to Schedule 1 Designation – by John Gever & Carol Duff – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/12/26/noose-tightens-around-kratom/ – “In April, we reported on an FDA order to remove some kratom products from the market because of Salmonella contamination. That turned out to be the opening shot in a war that the federal government has declared on the herbal product — or, at least, that’s how kratom’s advocates see it. In this story, we review what has happened since with the opioid mimic and the government’s efforts to discourage its use… Kratom comes from an Asian plant, Mitragyna speciosa, that has long been a mild recreational drug and part of folk remedies. In recent years, it has gained a following in North America with claims that it can relieve pain that conventional drugs can’t touch, and that it can also relieve symptoms of opioid withdrawal. It’s sold in smoke shops, “alternative medicine” storefronts, and, of course, online from countless vendors.” – Comment: my wife Cynthia uses Kratom every day to manage severe pain from fibromyalgia. For us, then, this is a a potential incursion by the Administrative System that would have life-changing implications.

Marxism Is Flooding American Society (5 min) – A short video starting with an 11 year old drag queen, and then moving onto a quick rundown on the Frankfurt School, which psychologically targeted the U.S. in particular for Social Engineering.

It’s Up, It’s Down, It’s Done — a Day in a Year of the Dow – by David Haggith – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/its-up-its-down-its-done-a-day-in-a-year-of-the-dow.html – “It looked like the violence of the day may have come from the Plunge Protection Team attempting to push the market up in the middle of the afternoon, except that the middle of the afternoon doesn’t fit the PPT’s MO because the birthing-sized push didn’t come in the PPT’s usual obvious final-hour press. So, what was the push in the penultimate hours all about?.. Was it everything the PPT could do to press the market up, and the press finally collapsed? Did the PPT try and fail? After a staggering rise (literally, as in up and down and up), the market plummeted in the final hour from a roughly 225-point positive position on the Dow down to close at about -75, leaving us with indisputably the worst December in market history by several measures or, as I called it, the December to Remember.” – Comment: This is one of the best articles I’ve ever seen for interpreting the meaning of the action of the markets over the course of a day. Haggith throws in much illuminating analysis about the current state of the economy.

Venezuelans Shudder at News of Biometric ID Deal with Chinese Tech Giant – by Laura Vidal, Translated by Alexis Faber – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/venezuelans-shudder-at-news-of-biometric-id-deal-with-chinese-tech-giant.html – “…for those who have closely followed the Venezuelan government as it has tightened its grip on people’s data and communications, the report represented another chapter in what has become a very long story… The report confirmed suspicions and denunciations made months ago, increasing fears that the alliance with ZTE will bring Venezuela closer to the implementing a form of social credit score system similar to what is used in China. This system would determine which citizens have access to basic services based on their political allegiances. It also prompted the US government to initiate investigations into the role of ZTE in Venezuela… What is the Fatherland Card Used For?: The Reuters story pointed to the participation of ZTE in the development of a monitoring system whose primary tool is the “Carnet de la Patria”, or Fatherland Card. This identification card captures multiple pieces of personal data coupled with a unique and personalized QR code. It also serves as a digital wallet within an electronic payment system… The Fatherland Card has been strongly promoted by the government and is intended to facilitate multiple public services. The card can be requested voluntarily and free of charge. During this process, whoever wants to get a Fatherland Card must answer questions about their social and economic status… Those who have the card gain access to food and medicine, which have become dangerously scarce amid Venezuela’s political and economic crisis.” (emphasis added)

Angela Merkel: Nation States Must “Give Up Sovereignty” To New World Order – Merkel is attempting to push the globalist agenda to its disturbing conclusion before she stands down – by Tyler Durden – http://theduran.com/angela-merkel-nation-states-must-give-up-sovereignty-to-new-world-order/ – ” ‘Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty’, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty…’In an orderly fashion of course,”’Merkel joked, attempting to lighten the mood. But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech condemning those in her own party who think Germany should have listened to the will of its citizens and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact: ‘There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People’… ‘[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,’ she stressed… Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying ‘That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations’.”

Peter Ford: ‘Idlib to be dealt with after US troops pullout of Syria’https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/12/30/peter-ford-idlib-to-be-dealt-with-after-us-troop-pullout/ – ” ‘It [the situation] is well on the way to resolution, where… we will see effectively a return to the status quo, the situation as it obtained in that part of Syria before 2011 when things were quiet, Turkey was happy, relations between Turkey and Syria were excellent… For several years the Syrian government has kept tight control over the Kurds. Turkey was very happy. We are heading for a return I think to that situation and it looks as though [Tayyip] Erdogan is adjusting to that probability’, Ford said… Ford also noted that the Kurdish militia should have realized much earlier the gravity of the situation, which they had been ignoring because of the US military presence in the region, and now their best option was to try and negotiate with Damascus.”

Chemtrails Exposed: Dresser Industries and the New Manhattan Project – by Peter Kirby – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/chemtrails-exposed-dresser-industries-and-the-new-manhattan-project.html – “The history of manipulating atmospheric particles with electricity goes back to Queen Elizabeth’s court physician and early geophysicist William Gilbert (1544-1603). In 1600 he noted that atmospheric particles were commonly attracted to ‘electricks.’ This was the documented discovery of what is now known as ‘electrical precipitation’ and the history of this field is the history of Dresser Industries and their Environmental Systems division… In the early 1800s M. Hohlfield of Leipzig University demonstrated the effect by clearing smoke from the inside of a glass jar with an electrified wire… Lodge-Cottrell’s signature products were the massive electrostatic precipitators used to scrub coal fly ash from the exhausts of coal-fired power plants. These electrostatic precipitators are in use today and they are based on the principles of electrical precipitation. This is especially significant because coal fly ash (the smoke from burning coal) has been scientifically determined to be exactly what the airplanes of the New Manhattan Project are spraying. Isn’t that convenient? The electrostatic manipulation of airborne coal fly ash has a long, well-documented history… In 1972 Dresser Industries acquired Lodge-Cottrell and it became a division of Dresser known as Environmental Systems… …Dresser Industries has many connections to the New Manhattan Project. First of all, Dresser’s Pacific Pump Works produced equipment which enabled the scientists of the original Manhattan Project to refine the uranium used in the world’s first atomic bombs.” – Comment: Peter Kirby is the preeminent researcher on the deep state structures behind Geoengineering and Atmospheric Particulate spraying (aka Chemtrails). His first book, Chemtrails Exposed: The New Manhattan Project is available on Amazon. His new book Chemtrails Exposed: The Deep State and the New Manhattan Project will be out soon.

Syria Sitrep – Army To Regain Northeastern Territory – Political Isolation Ends – by Moon of Alabama – https://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/12/syria-sitrep-army-to-regain-northeastern-territory-political-isolation-ends.html – “Yesterday the United Arab Emirates reopened its embassy in Damascus. Bahrain will follow next. Kuwait will reopen its embassy in January. Oman never closed its embassy in Damascus. Of the Gulf countries only Qatar, allied with Turkey, and Saudi Arabia have jet to announce a revival of their relations with Syria. Before the war on Syria started, the UAE and other gulf countries financed several large investment projects in Syria. These will be revived and help the country’s economy back onto its feet. Egypt is expected to follow the move of its Gulf sponsors… Underlying the UAE move is a strategy of countering Turkey’s neo-ottoman ambition. Syria is (again) seen as the bulwark that protects the larger Arabia from Turkish marauders. It signals to Turkey that any attempt to take over more of Syria will be resisted by the Gulf states and possibly even by Egypt’s army. Egypt is, together with Russia, mediating between the Kurds and the Syrian government.”

‘We won’t fight Ukraine, I promise’: Was this the fieriest interview of Sergey Lavrov’s career?https://www.rt.com/news/447318-lavrov-interview-grilling-ukraine/Comment: The Russian government perspective on this rather strange event. Atlanticist reaction to this interview immediately below.

Interview With Sergei Lavrov, A Peek Into The Bizarre Language of Russian Propaganda – by Joel Harding, “former” U.S. Intelligence Officer – https://toinformistoinfluence.com/2018/12/17/interview-with-sergei-lavrov-a-peek-into-the-bizarre-language-of-russian-propaganda/ – Comment: A full translation of this very interesting interview is included, below the “persuasion” on viewpoints by Harding at the top.

Organ theft, staged attacks: UN panel details White Helmets’ criminal activities, media yawns – by Eva Bartlett – https://www.rt.com/op-ed/447385-white-helmets-un-panel/ – “Utter silence. That is the sound of Western corporate media days after a more than one-hour-long panel on the White Helmets at the United Nations on December 20… Journalists were present, so the silence isn’t due to lack of access. And in any case it was live streamed on the UNTV channel, and remains available on Youtube for keen observers to watch… More likely, the silence is due to the irrefutable documentation presented on the faux-rescue group’s involvement in criminal activities, which include organ theft, working with terrorists — including as snipers — staging fake rescues, thieving from civilians, and other non-rescuer behaviour.”

From the It-Just-Gets-Stranger Desk: Russia To Build Airport, Vaccine Production Plant In Syria’s Tartushttps://southfront.org/russia-to-build-airport-vaccine-production-plant-in-syrias-tartus/ – “Russian companies plan to invest in the Syrian coastal city of Tartus among other projects as part of the Syrian reconstruction, Imad Sabuni, the head of the Syrian Planning and International Cooperation Commission said on December 26th… Russian companies are reportedly planning to construct an airport in the city of Tartus, as well as joint Syrian-Russian plant to produce vaccines within a framework of agreements signed during the 11th session of the Syrian-Russian Intergovernmental Commission held on December 14th in Damascus.” (emphasis added)

ISIS-trained Terrorists Support Ukrainian Operation In Donbasshttps://southfront.org/isis-trained-terrorists-support-ukrainian-operation-in-donbass/ – “The most interesting thing that the Times’ article attempts to provide a “neutral” or even “positive” look at the terrorist group’s operations by criticizing alleged human rights violations in Russia’s Chechnya and prising militancy in the Russian region… This is not the first time when it publicly appears that most of pro-Kiev forces in Donbass are terrorists, Nazis, war criminals or else. However, this does not stop the so-called “civilized world” from supporting actions of the Kiev regime.”

From The-Other-Side-Of-The-Story Desk: LA Doubled Homeless Budget, Doubled Homeless Crime – by Daniel Greenfield – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-23/la-doubled-homeless-budget-doubled-homeless-crime – “Los Angeles had doubled its homeless budget to $450 million. Despite that its homeless population had only dropped to 39,826, a reduction of only 256 people. The only surprise in those statistics is that the population dropped at all. Homeless spending has the notorious effect of increasing homeless populations rather than diminishing them as vagrants swarm in and agencies inflate their numbers… But while doubling its homeless budget didn’t significantly diminish the homeless population in Los Angeles, it did have another spectacular statistical effect on the wellbeing of city residents… LAPD statistics showed that homeless crime actually increased by nearly 50%, jumping from 5,976 crime reports of homeless perpetrators in most of 2017 to 8,906 crime reports in most of 2018… Los Angeles had doubled its homeless budget and doubled the amount of homeless crime… Homeless advocates like to claim that the police wrongly arrest the homeless for quality of life offenses that other people get a pass on… Several epidemics and fires later, not to mention an outbreak of shoplifting and tents being set up in residential areas and outside small businesses, the full scale of homeless legalization looks even worse.”

China Leapfrogs the U.S. in 5G Internet – by David P. Goldman – https://pjmedia.com/spengler/china-leapfrogs-the-us-in-5g-internet/– “At the beginning of 2018, a National Security Council memo warned: “We are losing. Whoever leads in technology and market share for 5G deployment will have a tremendous advantage towards [ . . .] commanding the heights of the information domain,” the Financial Times reported. That is correct, but it’s six years behind the curve. The U.S. revved up a campaign to dissuade its allies from using Huawei equipment well after the Chinese firm positioned itself as the dominant equipment supplier. The U.S. nearly shut down the Chinese handset maker ZTE by banning export of the Qualcomm chips that power its smartphones, in retaliation for ZTE’s violation of sanctions against Iran (eventually ZTE paid a multi-billion dollar fine and accepted tight controls). We can’t do that to Huawei. After the ZTE business, Huawei started a crash program to make itself self-sufficient in high-performance chipsets. Its Kirin chipset designed by its design subsidiary Isilicon and manufactured by Taiwan Semiconductor can do whatever Qualcomm can do.” Comment: It becomes more and more obvious that 5G is all about surveilling you and capturing your data.

REVEALED: Israel’s IDF Used Passenger Airliners as Cover During Christmas Day Attack on Damascus – by Patrick Hennigsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/12/26/revealed-israels-idf-used-passenger-airliners-as-cover-during-christmas-day-attack-on-damascus/ – “Had the Syrian military not hesitated, and engaged the initial Israeli bogey – and accidentally hit one of the passenger airliners the IDF was using as cover – the international outrage would have been substantial, with the western media most certainly blaming ‘the Assad Regime’ and ‘Putin’s Russia’ for the ‘humanitarian tragedy.’ It’s possible that an incident would have been enough to prompt renewed calls for the US forces to remain in Syria – effectively reversing the announcement made by President Trump last week to withdrawal US troops from their illegal occupation on northeastern Syria. Whether this was the Israeli motive for carrying out such a risky move is uncertain, but yesterday’s reckless incident by Israel follows a familiar and disturbing pattern of using other country’s aircraft as cover in order bait Syria’s air defenses to hit the wrong targets while conveniently concealing their own visibility on their enemy’s radar systems.”

Mainstream Media Now Openly Reporting on the Elite Lining Up to Ingest the Blood of Children – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/mainstream-media-now-openly-reporting-on-the-elite-lining-up-to-ingest-the-blood-of-children.html – “It was suggested in the report that aging elites are using the blood of young people as a type of youth serum. Now, we know that they actually are using it… ‘We found that it was safe and feasible to administer infusions of young plasma weekly,’ Dr. Sharon Shaw, an Alzheimer’s researcher at Stanford, said… A similar claim was made by journalist Jeff Bercovici last year, after he conducted several interviews with Silicon Valley aristocrats including Peter Thiel, and learned about this transfusion procedure called “parabiosis,” where the blood of young people is used to prevent aging… ‘There are widespread rumors in Silicon Valley, where life-extension science is a popular obsession, that various wealthy individuals from the tech world have already begun practicing parabiosis, spending tens of thousands of dollars for the procedures and young-person-blood, and repeating the exercise several times a year,’ Bercovici reported… In his article, Bercovici also expressed concerns about a developing black market for young people’s blood.”

2018: The Year Public Watchlists Became Commonplace – by MassPrivateI – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/2018-the-year-public-watchlists-became-commonplace.html – “A few months ago I called 2018 the “Rise of Spying Transit Police,” but after looking through my archives, I noticed a more disturbing pattern emerge. Time and again, month after month, most of the stories I wrote revolved around one thing: watchlists… In January, I wrote two stories about facial recognition and police camshares that centered around corporate and law enforcement watchlists. From then on things got progressively worse; watchlists, blacklists and whitelists are expanding at a frightening pace… Below is a list of twenty-seven stories that show how public watchlists have become commonplace…”

To “Celebrate” Christmas, Police Forcibly Remove City’s Entire Homeless Population – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/to-celebrate-christmas-police-forcibly-remove-citys-entire-homeless-population.html – “To “celebrate” Christmas Eve, the Waikiki Police Department is planning to remove all of the city’s homeless population in a massive sweep. The action has prompted backlash from the community as well as the ACLU… During the early morning hours, from 3:00 to 5:30 a.m. offices will sweep the town and forcibly remove all tents, gear, and people from the streets.”

US Established Two New Military Bases in Anbar Province – Reportshttps://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201812261071001370-usa-established-two-new-military-bases-anbar/ – “The first base was established in the northern Rumana sub-district of al-Qaim district, in the vicinity of the Syrian border, some 360 kilometres west of the provincial capital Ramadi. The second base was set up east of the city of al-Rutbah, about 310 kilometres west of Ramadi and less than 100 kilometres from the Syrian border, al-Duleimi said in an interview, according to PressTV… The official suggested that the American bases were purportedly intended to assist Iraqi forces in order to ‘secure the country’s borders and prevent infiltrations by the Daesh terrorist group.’.. ‘Scores of US soldiers are currently stationed at the two bases, along with drones and other equipment,’ added al-Duleimi, yet without providing any additional evidence.” – Comment: These “new” bases are each on one of the two major highways out of Syria going to Baghdad. The one in al-Qaim essentially replaces the function of the al-Tanf base in Syria that is being closed down now. This is business as usual represented as policy change.

Theresa May Thanks British Military For Protecting Country From “Russian Intrusion” In 2018https://southfront.org/theresa-may-thanks-british-military-for-protecting-country-from-russian-intrusion-in-2018/ – “In her address, she thanked the British military for protecting the UK from “Russian intrusion,” praised the co-operation with the US and France in the fight against ISIS and punishing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for the alleged use of chemical weapons in April on children… Thus, essentially, she praised the military for the fight against ISIS and for several imaginary and unproven situations connected to Russia and the Syrian government… Separately, the Edinburgh radio station Sputnik was accused of being a “Russian stooge” by an unnamed Scottish member of parliament cited by The Times. Sputnik was established by a news agency that is owned by the Russian government and it opened its UK branch in 2016… The Times also provided a list of pictures and names of its executives, who are all accused of being “Russian puppets.”.. According to the unnamed leading MSP, Russians who live in Scotland and engage in “information warfare” to destabilize Britain should have their assets seized.” – Comment: The Cabinet Office and its President, Ms. May, are now revealed as being little more than Key Assets in disinfo and black propaganda. This quasi-fascist conglomerate is highly likely to take financial sanctions or even use imprisonment against people on allegations of disloyalty or “thought crimes.”

Photos, Videos: Turkish Military Build Up On Border With SDF-Held Part Of Syriahttps://southfront.org/photos-videos-turkish-military-build-up-on-border-with-sdf-held-part-of-syria/Comment: LOTS of stuff on the move. Camps being set up on Syrian Border.

Estonia Criminalizes ‘Negative Attitude’ Towards Statehttps://southfront.org/estonia-criminalizes-negative-attitude-towards-state/ – “On December 25, Estonia’s Parliament accepted a law criminalizing creation and support of a negative attitude towards the state, Interfax reported. The law will be employed towards both private individuals and legal bodies.” – Comment: The legislature’s Christmas Present for Estonians everywhere! Perhaps all is not well in the halcyon land of eEstonia. Frankly, I don’t think you can make this stuff up…

Trump is leaving behind a trap for Russia, Turkey and Iran in Syria – by Elijah J. Magnier – https://ejmagnier.com/2018/12/24/trump-is-leaving-behind-a-trap-for-russia-turkey-and-iran-in-syria/ – “The quick US withdrawal is expected and even designed to create, no doubt, an initial confusion in the triangle Turkey-Syria-Iraq in the first months. ISIS, Turkey, and al-Qaeda may take advantage of this, hoping to turn the situation to their advantage. Nevertheless, this withdrawal will no doubt be a long-term blessing to the Syrian government, whose officials had not dared to hope for such an outcome. The US establishment has been a source of continuous havoc in the Levant and especially to the “Axis of the Resistance”; it has been the protector of al-Qaeda (in Idlib) and ISIS (in the area Trump declares his intention to withdraw from) in Syria and Iraq. Its departure is a sign that the US is coming to grips with the fact that its hegemony is no longer unilateral. Russia is moving forward while the US is backing off in the Middle East.”

UMass student asked to remove ‘F*ck Nazis’ sign because it’s not inclusive – Junior Nicole Parsons says she put up placard after a swastika was scrawled over ‘Happy Hanukkah’ sign on campus – by Sam Sokol – https://www.timesofisrael.com/umass-student-asked-to-remove-f-nazis-sign-because-its-not-inclusive/Comment: The surreality is becoming epoch.

The Psychological Warfare Behind Economic Collapse – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/the-psychological-warfare-behind-economic-collapse.html – “All the evidence overwhelmingly assures us that the conspiracy is fully conscious, organized and deliberate. It is not an ugly or random byproduct of “profit motive.” This is absurd when you consider the amount of coordination that is required or the number of think tanks and secretive conferences that occur yearly, from the Council on Foreign Relations, to Tavistock, to the Trilateral Commission, to the Brookings Institution, to Davos, to Bilderberg and to even weirder circles like Bohemian Grove. These are very real centers of power that can have far reaching influence in our daily lives… To ignore this and reduce it all down to a “natural” extension of greed is to stupidly rest one’s soft spongy head in the jaws of organized evil while pretending you can’t smell the stench of its gingivitis.” More: “It is also no coincidence that the globalists have announced in 2018 that their intention is to adapt to a digital monetary system using blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. That is to say, the one world currency system predicted in The Economist is already here. They are only waiting for a crisis large enough to pressure society to accept total global centralization as a solution… Forcing the public to embrace worldwide centralization would require several measures. First, the current system, which as stated is designed to fail, would have to be allowed to crash. Second, the crash would have to be blamed on someone other than the globalists and their ideology of globalism. Third, philosophical opponents of globalism (i.e., conservatives, nationalists and decentralization activists) would have to be demonized or eliminated so that the globalists can build their new world order without opposition. Fourth, the population would need to be sufficiently traumatized to the point of psychological submission and desperation, so that when the new system is introduced, they will be grateful for it, thus preventing future rebellion by making the public a willing cooperator in their own enslavement.” (emphasis added:)

For the Week of 12/17/18:

Selco on Gun Confiscation: “Here’s How It Might Actually Go Down”https://www.theorganicprepper.com/gun-confiscation/ – “Here is how it might actually go down. This is one possible scenario: First, you’ll be labeled as a terrorist, some weird guy who wants to overthrow the government. Maybe your photo will be posted somewhere stating that you are very sick, and that you pose a danger to society… If you are a member of some group, let’s say a prepper group, you all will be labeled as terrorists first, and through the media, you can be portrayed as a domestic terror cell, to the point that your next door neighbor will help police to get you… Do not underestimate the power of the government machine. You may truly be a fighter for constitutional rights and a real patriot, but in 3 days you can become a crazy terrorist that citizens will actually hunt down and shoot like a mad dog… There used to be a law about weapons here, where I live, before the war. And yes, you could own a weapon but it was such a hard law that actually not too many people owned legal weapons… And right when the SHTF, first thing that happened was the confiscation of legal weapons, based on lists of who own legal weapons… Now what people could do then was to say, ‘This is my legal weapon. I have a right to own it, by the law.’ And those who did that usually got shot… There were 20 heavily armed guys at your door asking nicely for your weapon, to be turned over to them in the name of “law” as an effort of a government that wanted to calm down a chaotic situation.”

Signs Of War: UN General Assembly Rejects Russia-Initiated Draft Resolution In Support Of INF Treatyhttps://southfront.org/un-general-assembly-rejects-russia-initiated-draft-resolution-in-support-of-inf-treaty/ – “43 states voted for the document, 46 – against, 78 – abstained. The US, European Union states, Ukraine, Japan and Turkey voted against. China, Iran, Syria, member states of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and some Latin American countries were among the supporters of the document… The draft called on UN GA members to support the treaty as one of the cornerstones of European and international security. The document also called on the signatories to the treaty – Russia and the US – to continue consultations to keep it in place… ‘A threat to the treaty’s existence emerged this October when the United States announced its plans to unilaterally withdraw from it,’ Russia’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky said commenting on the draft resolution. He recalled and warned that the breakdown of the treaty is fraught with another round of a full-scale arms race.”

Days Before War? U.S. Concentrates Troops & Withdraws Diplomatshttps://southfront.org/days-before-war-u-s-concentrates-troops-withdraws-diplomats/ – “This follows a significant increase of US intelligence gathering missions along the Russian borders during the past 10 days. On December 18, British reconnaissance ship HMS Echo entered the Black Sea in order to collect fresh data about water depths and streams for surface and underwater submarine fleets of NATO member states… On December 18, the US and its allies forced through a UN General Assembly resolution condemning the alleged militarization of Crimea, the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea and supporting Ukrainian actions in the region. The passed resolution is a clear signal to the Poroshenko regime that the Euro-Atlantic elite fully supports its actions… The passed resolution also marked the start of a new round of pre-war media hysteria in Ukraine. A week ago, President Petro Poroshenko delcared that the Ukrainian military has started redeploying assault units of the Air Assault Forces (AAF) to the areas of a possible “Russian invasion”.”

Britain’s Real Enemy, Not Russia – by Finian Cunninghamhttp://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50805.htm – “Nothing it seems would please Britain’s callow defense minister than to start a war with Russia. For him that would be a pinnacle career move even though the country he is supposed to be defending might possibly end up as a heap of radioactive ashes. Imagine him atop the pinnacle with a potty on his head and radioactive ruins below… This scaremongering, warmongering Russophobia is all about keeping idiots like Williamson in a high-paying job. And no doubt a plush job to follow at some warmongering pro-NATO think-tank… However, this week’s installment involving sending British forces to the Arctic “to defend Britain from Russia” is obviously aimed at the additional purpose of distracting Britons from the Brexit mess that Williamson’s government has created.”

Filmmaker Ron Howard to Make Camp Fire Documentary – Howard is conducting interviews for his project, and is expected to return several times – https://www.actionnewsnow.com/content/news/Filmmaker-Ron-Howard-to-make-Camp-Fire-Documentary-503094282.htmlEmail reaction to this news from Deborah Tavares: “HOLLYwood, the “Wizards Stick” of media propaganda is moving into Paradise to create the false fire narrative… We need to find out who’s financing this documentary and follow the script as fire survivors are interviewed, and who is “selected” to be interviewed. We must also watch to see where the funds from this documentary go… Remember, in Santa Rosa, a documentary was released one year after the TUBBS Fire of November 2017. This documentary was entitled “Urban Inferno – the Night Santa Rosa Burned”. The profits went to the Sonoma County Community Resilience Fund, a Rockefeller and Rothschild resilience scheme to help finance the destruction, damage, and death they created. .. You will not hear the truth about the FIRES in Butte County, California… The script will most likely omit – ● that PG&E is Rothschild (conrolled); ● Directed Energy Weapons were deployed; ● there were Heavy Heavy Chemtrailed Skies days before the fires; ● Smart Meters Blew-up (WERE Blown-up); ● the fires were a house to house ignition; ● the trees resisted the fires; ● the weather on demand facilitated the ideal fire conditions… Paradise is GOLD Country… Climate Action Plans were approved by the Butte County city and county boards – plans stating the county would face floods, fires, heat events, water shortages and more if CO2 emissions were not reduced. The Climate Action and Resilient, which Butte County adopted, are plans of land restrictions, energy and resource “required” reductions. In short, these United Nation Plans are CRIMINAL Plans of DEATH . . . and more… The climate action and resilient plans have been approved in communities nationwide and worldwide… Understand the Camp Fires, in Butte County are an active criminal crime scene and the perpetrators are conducting the investigations that the media will advance as the cause… Will your town of deliberate destruction be the next Hollywood Documentary?.. WE MUST ALL WORK TOGETHER TO ‘EXPOSE’ THE TRUTH” Comment: While Tavares and I don’t agree on what the evidence from “The Camp Fire” indicates, she is, I think, correct about the significance of the sudden emergence of a major documentary with Hollywood blockbuster director Ron Howard at the helm. The fantasy just keeps unwinding.

Prelude to Caribbean Crisis 2.0? Russia reportedly eyes air base off Venezuela’s coasthttps://www.rt.com/news/446899-russia-military-base-venezuela/ – “Shoigu has so far only confirmed that the Russian military aircraft will continue to fly to Venezuela while the Russian Navy vessels might also use its ports… However, located far away from the Russian territory, Moscow would likely need a full-scale military facility, Sivkov said, adding that a small installation would not be enough to support Russia’s operations in the area. ‘It might be initially reduced to a limited presence at a level of a flying squadron or an air regiment,’ he said, adding that the Russia would then likely increase its presence by building fuel and munitions depots as well as deploying air defense systems to the area and making the Venezuelan installation potentially similar to Russia’s Syrian Khmeimim base… The arrival of just two Russian Tu-160 strategic bombers for drills in Venezuela has already jangled nerves in Washington and provoked a wave of hysteria in the Western media. Some even closely examined the potential base location using satellite photos and called it “an unprecedented standing strategic threat to the mainland United States within the Western Hemisphere.”

WaPo’s take: Trump administration plans to pull U.S. troops from Syria immediately, officials say – by Missy Ryan – https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-administration-plans-to-pull-us-troops-from-syria-immediately-defense-official-says/2018/12/19/4fcf188e-0397-11e9-b5df-5d3874f1ac36_story.html – “Col. Rob Manning, a Pentagon spokesman, said U.S. forces continue to work with their partners in Syria “at this time.” It wasn’t immediately clear whether the United States would continue to conduct airstrikes on militant targets in Syria once forces depart… The withdrawal plans leave major questions for an alliance of U.S.-backed Kurdish and Arab militias, known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, or SDF, which has provided key aid for U.S. forces in the fight against the Islamic State… Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who shares the president’s distaste for foreign wars, said on Twitter that he was ‘happy to see a President who can declare victory and bring our troops out of a war. It’s been a long time since that has happened.’ ”

But President Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning that ‘We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.’ (Question: When WOULD The Donald be in Syria OTHER than “during the Trump Presidency?” Just askin’.)… The U.S. sent in diplomatic teams to help rebuild northeastern Syria as the military set up new outposts on the country’s border with Turkey, which views them as an effort to shield America’s Kurdish partners from an attack by Turkish forces… Earlier this month, Mr. Erdogan moved Turkish military forces to the border and threatened to attack the Kurdish forces within days… Mr. Trump and Mr. Erdogan spoke last Friday, and the discussions about withdrawing U.S. forces moved rapidly.” (emphasis added) – Comment: Is it only me, or does it seem as if “the U.S.” is clearing the way for a major invasion and occupation of Northeastern Syria by the Turks?

One post on Instagram — which emerged as an especially potent weapon in the Russian social media arsenal — claimed that Mueller had worked in the past with “radical Islamic groups.”.. Such tactics exemplified how Russian teams ranged nimbly across social media platforms in a shrewd online influence operation aimed squarely at American voters.” (emphasis added) – Rank Hypocrisy: When a party, in its operations, does precisely what it is accusing another party of doing.

And in fact It is likely that cutting the point and then inserting an RFID chip will be a form of what TCM would deem an “insult” to that energy system… We don’t’ have any evidence that the practice of microchipping the hand is safe because we are deploying technologies right and left that have not been pre-market safety tested.”

Global warming should be called global heating, says key scientist – by Jonathan Watts – https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/dec/13/global-heating-more-accurate-to-describe-risks-to-planet-says-key-scientist – “Prof Richard Betts, who leads the climate research arm of Britain’s meteorological monitoring organisation, made the comments amid growing evidence that rising temperatures have passed the comfort zone and are now bringing increased threats to humanity… ‘Global heating is technically more correct because we are talking about changes in the energy balance of the planet,’ the scientist said at the UN climate summit in Katowice, Poland. ‘We should be talking about risk rather than uncertainty.’.. Earlier this month, the Met Office produced a new report that showed the searing heatwave that hit the UK this summer – along with other parts of the northern hemisphere – was made 30 times more likely by human-caused climate change.” Comment: Wonder Bread Builds Strong Bodies 12 Ways!

Russia Greenlights Retaliatory Syrian Attacks on Israeli Targets — Report – by Elijah J Magnier – https://russia-insider.com/en/russia-greenlights-retaliatory-syrian-attacks-israeli-targets-report/ri25684 – ” For many months, the Russian President Vladimir Putin refused to receive Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Only through real harassment by the latter did Putin finally accept to briefly meet with Netanyahu over lunch or around the dinner table during a large Summit or meeting of Heads of State, without however accepting any compromise or reconciliation. Russia has now taken a clear position and has no intention of extending its embrace or pardon to Israel. Russia felt that its generosity (by closing its eyes to Israel’s activities in Syria) was neither recognised nor sufficiently appreciated by Tel Aviv... Moreover, Russia has given Syria the green light – said the source- to strike Israel at any time if and when Tel Aviv’s planes launch raids against Syrian military targets or launch long-range missiles without flying over Syria (for fear of the S-300 and to avoid seeing its jets downed over Syria or Lebanon)… The new Syrian rule of engagement – according to the source – is now as follows: an airport will be hit if Israel hits an airport, and any attack on a barracks or command and control centre will result in an attack on similar target in Israel. It appears that the decision has been taken at the highest level and a clear “bank of objectives” has now been set in place.”

How School Districts Weaponize Child Protection Services Against Uncooperative Parents – by Kerry McDonald – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/how-school-districts-weaponize-child-protection-services-against-uncooperative-parents.html – ” ‘Fed up with what they see as obstinate parents who don’t agree to special education services for their child, or disruptive kids who make learning difficult, schools sometimes use the threat of a child-protection investigation to strong-arm parents into complying with the school’s wishes or transferring their children to a new school. That approach is not only improper, but it can be devastating for families, even if the allegations are ultimately determined to be unfounded’… More troubling, these threats disproportionately target low-income and minority parents. According to the report: ‘Such families also have fewer resources to fight back. When a family in a wealthy Brooklyn neighborhood learned roughly two years ago that their child’s school had initiated an ACS [New York’s Administration for Children’s Services] investigation against them, they sued the city education department. Parents from lower-income, majority-black and Latino neighborhoods, few of whom can afford that option, say such investigations can be a regular, even expected, part of parenting.’ ”

Pentagon Considers Illegally Occupied Syrian Areas US Territory – by Stephen Lendman – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50757.htm – “Vladimir Putin, Lavrov, and other Russian officials know the US supports ISIS and other terrorists in Syria, as well as in other countries. There’s no ambiguity about it.. Months earlier, Russia’s Defense Ministry released satellite video images showing US-supported troops together with terrorists comprising the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), moving freely in ISIS-controlled parts of Deir Ezzor province… ‘Without resistance from ISIS militants, (these forces) are moving along the left bank of the Euphrates river towards the town of Deir Ezzor,’ Russia’s Defense Ministry said, adding: ‘Despite strongholds of the US armed forces…located where ISIS troops are currently deployed, there are not even signs of organization of a battle outpost.’.. ‘Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontation between’ US forces and ISIS terrorists Washington pretends to be combatting.”

CDC Caught Spreading Misinformation About The Flu Shot: Here Are The Details – by Jeremy R. Hammond – https://www.lewrockwell.com/2018/12/no_author/cdc-caught-spreading-misinformation-about-the-flu-shot-here-are-the-details/ – “Conclusion: In summary, there is no good scientific evidence to support the CDC’s claim that the influenza vaccine reduces hospitalizations or deaths among the elderly. The types of studies the CDC has relied on to support this claim have been thoroughly discredited due to their systemic “healthy user” selection bias, and the mortality rate has observably increased along with the increase in vaccine uptake—which the CDC has encouraged with its unevidenced claims about the vaccine’s benefits, downplaying of its risks, and a marketing strategy of trying to frighten people into getting the flu shot for themselves and their family.”

‘Yellow Vest’ pro-Brexit protesters block Westminster Bridgehttps://www.rt.com/uk/446452-yellow-vest-pro-brexit/ – “After being moved on, protesters walked down Whitehall, gathering outside Downing Street where one activist berated the police officers with a megaphone demanding a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May… The group ‘Fighting for Justice’ appear to be involved in the protest, their Facebook account posted a live stream of the protest.”

FBI plans ‘Rapid DNA’ network for quick database checks on arrestees – by Tom Jackman – https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/FBI-plans-Rapid-DNA-network-for-quick-database-13462947.php – “But a portable machine about the size of a large desktop printer is changing that. A “Rapid DNA” machine can take a swab of DNA, analyze it and produce a profile of 20 specific loci on the DNA strand in less than two hours. Some local police departments and prosecutors have been using Rapid DNA machines for about five years to solve crimes… In Orange County, California, recently, police investigating a stabbing found a trail of blood from the suspect. The Rapid DNA machine was able to produce a profile that matched someone already in the Orange County database, but who was “not on the radar” of investigators, Assistant District Attorney Jennifer Contini said. He was arrested. ‘The speed with which you can give law enforcement these clues is critical,” Contini said. “When you are out on these suspects fast, they confess. We’ve had tremendous success.’ ”

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Searching Travelers’ Devices At An Alarming Rate According To Gov’t Watchdog – by Aaron Kesel – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/u-s-customs-border-protection-searching-travelers-devices-at-an-alarming-rate-according-to-government-watchdog.html – “The government watchdog — the Office of the Inspector General for Homeland Security — found there were 29,000 devices searched at a port of entry out of 397 million travelers to the U.S. in the year 2017, up from 18,400 the year before from 390 million travelers… The agency further found that several searches conducted by Customs and Border Protection officers were not properly documented, and the data was not properly secured as per protocol. Some of the devices that were searched included officers looking into cloud-related content, in violation of procedures. Apparently, while officers can search a device, they are not permitted to search what’s on a traveler’s cloud network. Homeland Security is the department that oversees the U.S.’s borders.”

DPR Intelligence: Ukrainian Commanders Execute Own Troops Refusing To Fight In Donbass Regionhttps://southfront.org/dpr-intelligence-ukrainian-commanders-execute-own-troops-refusing-to-fight-in-donbass-region/ – “Quoting the DPR intelligence, Bezsonov also said that a similar situation took place in Berdyansk, Zaporojie region, where another soldier was shot and killed by his commander during a propaganda campaign in support of military actions in the region of Donbass. The death of this soldier was described as a suicide… Bezsonov emphasized that the introduction of martial law in 10 Ukrainian regions gave free rein to commanders of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.”

How Americans’ Most Respected Institution Secretly Stole at Least $90,000 From Each American Between 1998 and 2015 – by Eric Zuesse – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/12/11/how-americans-most-respected-institution-secretly-stole-least-90000-from-each-american-between-1998-and-2015.html – “The US military is the most respected institution by the American people. According to investigations by the Inspector General of the US Department of Defense — investigations which were based on inspections of only portions of the Department’s financial records, not of all of them, and so the amount is incomplete — that Department had disappeared at least $21 trillion of funds from US taxpayers during the 18-year period 1998-2015. The US population, during that period, was around 300 million people; so, at a bare minimum, approximately $70,000 was being stolen (or otherwise disappeared at the US Defense Department) from each American during that time. However, $10 in 1998 was worth $14.54 in 2015; so, considering inflation, each American was robbed, during that period, of at least around $90,000, by the most respected institution. The average US household or “family” has 2.54 people. So, the average US household lost AT LEAST around $223,000, from thefts (or ‘lost money’) by the US military, during 1998-2015. (This fact has never been published before, because this calculation has never before been done; the loss to individual persons and families hasn’t previously been calculated.)”

The wireless sensors are concealed under a normal uniform hat and constantly monitor brain waves while sending the data back into main computers that use AI algorithms to detect any unpleasant emotional spikes such as “depression, anxiety or rage.”..

The Deathly Insect Dilemma – by Robert Hunziker – https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/12/07/the-deathly-insect-dilemma/ – “Moreover, there is no quick and easy explanation for this sudden emergence of massive loss around the globe. Yet, something is dreadfully horribly wrong. Beyond doubt, it is not normal for 50%-to-90% of a species to drop dead, but that is happening right now from Germany to Australia to Puerto Rico’s tropical rainforest… Scientists are rattled. The world is largely unaware of the implications because it is all so new. It goes without saying that the risk of loss of insects spells loss of ecosystems necessary for very important stuff, like food production… Farmland birds that depend upon a diet of insects in Europe have disappeared by >50% in just three decades. French farmland partridge flocks have crashed by 80%. Nightingale abundance is down by almost 80%. Turtledoves are down nearly 80%.”

Ukrainian Air Force Deployed Combat Drones To Carry Out Chemical Provocation In Donbass: DPR Militaryhttps://southfront.org/ukrainian-air-force-deployed-combat-drones-to-carry-out-chemical-provocation-in-donbass-dpr-military/ – “On December 1st, EurAsia Daily cited the deputy chief of the People’s Militia of the DPR Eduard Basurin who said that Kiev is preparing for a large-scale invasion against Donetsk… ‘Training of the shock group is underway. This is evidenced by the concentration on the Mariupol tactical direction of three brigades – 79 separate assault and assault brigades, 36 separate brigades of marines and 128 separate mountain assault brigades, who received the task of conducting offensive operations in the Novoazovsk region in early December with access to the border with Russia,’ he said… According to him, breaking through the first line of defense was entrusted to elite formations of paratroopers and marines. Basurin considers this a tactical mistake of Kiev and the “incompetence of the Commander of the Combined Forces Sergey Naev, who for the sake of devotion to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is ready to sacrifice personnel for the sake of achieving dubious goals.”

Colombia Cracks Down On Child Sex Trafficking Network Run By Israelishttps://southfront.org/colombia-cracks-down-on-child-sex-trafficking-network-run-by-israelis/ – “The attorney general’s office said 150 billion pesos ($47.3 million) of property has been seized during the investigation, including hotels, hostels and other tourism related businesses… The investigation into the trafficking ring has been happening since June 2016, when an Israeli citizen – Shai Azran was murdered in Medellin. The prime suspect of the murder was Assi Ben-Mosh, a 44-yaer-old Israeli who has operated in Colombia since 2009. He was arrested in the Netherlands in 2003 on suspicions of leading an international drug trafficking network… Authorities tracked Ben-Mosh’s activities in Colombia and found that he was the owner of a hotel in Santa Marta, Hotel Benjamin, that offered the “tourism packages.” He together with Zohar also allegedly organized parties at which drugs and sex services were sold.”

Kiev Regime – A Western Frankenstein Creation – Editorial – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/12/07/kiev-regime-western-frankenstein-creation.html – “Poroshenko and his Russophobic cabal are calling on NATO for support in the event of a confrontation with Russia. This is a reckless premeditated pursuit of war, which has been a tendency by the Kiev regime ever since it illegally seized power in the CIA-backed coup d’état in 2014. The US and European governments bear responsibility for creating the highly dangerous situation by their fawning over Kiev with military and financial support… The resonance with the origins of World War II is too alarming to ignore. It was through the Ukraine that the German Third Reich launched its catastrophic offensive on Soviet Russia in June 1941. Today, the Kiev regime is all too reminiscent of Neo-Nazi affiliation and a rabid anti-Russian mentality. Its unhinged conduct is being indulged by American and European governments, military and media – either out of ignorance or, more sinisterly, out of calculated intent to prompt confrontation with Russia… It is only 73 years since the end of World War II. Incredibly, despite living memory of that horror, the world is being endangered again by criminal disregard for international law. And in the same geographical location… Western governments are fully responsible for the present instability and potentially incendiary situation. They must act immediately to restrain the Kiev regime – if, that is, they genuinely want to uphold peace with Russia.”

He said these evil entities are going to masquerade as true ET’s and perpetrate a fraud against the world. Jesus will be falsely discredited and a fake alien invasion will take place. However, there will be casualties and humanity will be overwhelmed. He also told me that the Mt Graham facility is related to CERN that will doing the same only on a much larger scale… I am certain that Larry will again disappear but he remains adamant that I expose his thoughts to the public. I know one thing, the now late Bill Pawelec and Vance Davis, with whom I still speak with and occasionally interview, believed every world said by Larry 20 years ago. By the way, the entry point for the “evil spirits” is indeed called a stargate. I found that to be very interesting.” – Comment: I look at what Dave is putting up maybe a couple of times a week as a way of keeping track of an alternate view of reality that can reveal some important nuggets. With this post Dave says he’s finally revealing very important information that he’s been gradually learning about at a deeper level for many years. The main take-away is that he says that what he calls “evil entities” are “returning” to Earth now for a war against humanity and against the Divine Hierarchies under Lord Jesus, and that humans will be suffering the results of this (psychic?) invasion directly soon. He says ” …humanity will be overwhelmed.” He also says “Jesus will be falsely discredited.” This is very interesting to me because one of main subjects of my research has been the truth about a historical Jesus and the creation of the Christian religion(s). One of my main working hypotheses at the moment is that the story of Jesus, and its use to dominate human awareness over the last two millenia is the product of what I see as a dark force or forces (note: this is far from the same as “evil entities” or fallen spirits with a direct connection to consciousness). Dave and I don’t see eye-to-eye regarding “demonic” energies, fallen angels, etc. I suspect that the Christian nexus in which Dave moves would generally take the view that Quantum Theory, and the spiritual openings that it reportedly helps create in people studying it, are tools of these “demonic” forces, and that the idea that reality is a single mystery phenomenon, of which we are all so-called aspects, is an opening to demonic possession and damnation. I propose that these ideas are a potentially fruitful line of inquiry regarding what is really unfolding for humankind now.

For the Week of 12/3/18:

The Agricultural Pesticide Damaging Kids’ Brains – by Catherine Frompovich – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/the-agricultural-pesticide-damaging-kids-brains.html – “Chlorpyrifos is used on a wide variety of crops including apples, oranges, strawberries, corn, wheat, citrus and other foods families and their children eat daily… In fact, over half of all apples and broccoli in the U.S. are sprayed with chlorpyrifos. USDA’s Pesticide Data Program found chlorpyrifos residue on citrus and melons even after being washed and peeled. By volume, chlorpyrifos is most used on corn and soybeans, with over a million pounds applied annually to each crop… Beyond Pesticides has an online pdf file “Widely Used Pesticide in Food Production Damages Children’s Brains EPA science on chlorpyrifos ignored as agency reverses decision to stop insecticide’s agricultural use,” which I encourage consumers to study carefully with regard to the following: Chlorpyrifos effects on children’s brain function Studies have documented that exposure to low levels of chlorpyrifos during pregnancy can impair learning, change brain function and alter thyroid levels of offspring into adulthood, especially in females.

Trump administration resists global climate efforts at home and overseas – by David Nakamura and Darryl Fears – https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-administration-resists-global-climate-efforts-at-home-overseas/2018/12/09/b94a9ef0-fa41-11e8-863c-9e2f864d47e7_story.html – “The United States joined a controversial proposal by Saudi Arabia and Russia this weekend to weaken a reference to a key report on the severity of global warming, sharpening battle lines at the global climate summit in Poland aimed at gaining consensus over how to combat rising temperatures… Arguments erupted Saturday night before a United Nations working group focused on science and technology, where the United States teamed with Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to challenge language that would have welcomed the findings of the landmark report, which said that the world has barely 10 years to cut carbon emissions by nearly half to avoid catastrophic warming.”

Pro-Tech Website Slams 5G Proponents for the “Race for 5G” and Installing Small Cell Towers Everywherehttps://www.activistpost.com/2018/12/pro-tech-website-slams-5g-proponents-for-the-race-for-5g-and-installing-small-cell-towers-everywhere.htmlDroid Life is incorrect, though, in declaring that someone needs to do a 5G health study pretty damn soon. Studies (plural) have already been done. 1, 2 … It also has already been reported that people and animals have already been suffering from exposure to 5G. Residents in Gateshead, England even won a court case against their city council for installing it… Some elected officials are trying to protect citizens from 5G. Are yours?

Victory Against Verizon by Angry Vermonters Who Don’t Want Small Cell Towers Installed Throughout Their Communityhttps://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/victory-against-verizon-by-angry-vermonters-who-dont-want-small-cell-towers-installed-throughout-their-community.html – “Since then, the board has received complaints from the public about the project, including questioning the necessity of increased coverage, health and safety issues, and concerns about approving the project would be setting a precedent for other companies to install more antennas in the community… In response to those complaints, the town formed the Small Cells Committee to address the issues and establish a policy concerning the installation of the boosters. The conditions included that no apparatus could be attached to a double-pole, the equipment should be colored like the pole to blend in, and that Verizon would have to go through an annual recertification process.”

‘How the West Eats Its Children’ – by Thierry Meyssan – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50723.htm – “One month after the attacks of 11 September 2001, US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld nominated his friend Admiral Arthur Cebrowski as Director of the new Office of Force Transformation. He was tasked with changing the culture of the entire US military in order to enable it to respond to a complete change in its mission… There was no longer question of using US armies to defend principles or interests, but to use them for a reorganisation of the world by dividing it into two parts – one one side the states integrated into the globalised economy, and on the other, the others [5]. The Pentagon would no longer fight wars in order to steal natural resources, but to control access to those resources by the globalised nations. A division directly inspired by the process of globalisation which had already trashed half of the Western populations. This time, it was half of the world’s population which was to be excluded… …Several hundreds of thousands of French people suddenly took to the streets to demonstrate against abusive financial measures. Unfortunately for them, the French upper classes have been contaminated by the very idea that was rejected by the United States, and therefore did their best to adapt their policies to the popular revolt, but not to change its basic causes… If we look at each of these four countries separately, we will find four different explanations for what is happening there. But if we analyse the situation as a single phenomenon affecting different cultures, we will discover the same mechanisms across the board. In these four countries, consecutive with the end of capitalism, the middle classes disappeared more or less rapidly, and with them the political system that they incarnated – Democracy.” – Comment: This is a very, very important set of observations on the current state of the world.

Canada Takes A Hostage: Free Meng Wanzhou – by Christopher Black – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50722.htm – “`The arrest has shocked and angered China while in Canada the large Chinese population must wonder how safe they are. The background to the arrest is fairly simple. Huawei has become a global competitor in the global phone market and their 5G phones are cutting edge technology and so not welcomed by competing phone companies in, US, Japan, south Korea, France, and Sweden, who are so afraid of the competition that they and their governments have spread stories that the phones are loaded with spyware and are “a danger to national security.” The company has even been threatened by the US and allied governments with criminal charges in America’s increasingly hostile economic war against China alongside its increasing military pressure, provocations and insults. It’s one way to control the market. But now, acting as a mafia they have kidnapped, detained, and hold hostage a Chinese woman whose simple crime is going to work every day. The lack of outcry from women’s rights groups in the west is not surprisingly, deafening.” – Comment: Of course, Ms. Meng’s real crime should be aiding and abetting the manufacture and distribution of 5G phones & networks…

Comey transcript released: Ex-FBI boss claims not to know, remember key details in Russia case – by Paulina Dedaj, Judson Berger – https://www.foxnews.com/politics/comey-transcript-released-ex-fbi-boss-claims-not-to-know-remember-key-details-in-russia-case – “But while Comey insisted in the interview that ‘we never investigated the Trump campaign for political purposes,’ the transcript shows he claimed ignorance or memory lapses in response to questions concerning key details and events in the Russia investigation, which some GOP lawmakers continue to claim was improperly conducted… The transcript reveals lawmakers’ frustration with his lack of specifics… Asked if he recalled who drafted the FBI’s “initiation document” for the July 2016 Russia investigation, Comey said, “I do not.” He again claimed not to know when asked about the involvement in that initiation of Peter Strzok, whose anti-Trump texts later got him removed from the special counsel’s probe… When asked if the FBI had any evidence that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired to hack the DNC server, Comey gave a lengthy answer referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation as to why he couldn’t answer… ‘Did we have evidence in July of (2016) that anyone in the Trump campaign conspired to hack the DNC server?’ Comey asked rhetorically. ‘I don’t think that the FBI and special counsel want me answering questions that may relate to their investigation of Russian interference during 2016. And I worry that that would cross that line.’ ”

There Will Be No US Navy ‘Freedom of Navigation’ Operations in Russia’s Arctic Oceanhttps://russia-insider.com/en/there-will-be-no-us-navy-freedom-navigation-operations-russias-arctic-ocean/ri25580 – “Russia has worked hurriedly to reassert its military presence in the Arctic frontier and secure access to a strategic northern shipping corridor — the Northern Sea Route — between Asia and Europe. The corridor takes about two weeks less to traverse than the Suez Canal… On Friday, Defense Ministry spokesman Mikhail Mizintsev said that Russia’s ministries were working on amending legislation that would require foreign warships to notify Russia before being able to pass through the Arctic.”

From the Don’t-Make-Me-Come-In-There Desk: Netanyahu: Hezbollah aims to send battalions to grab land, kill Israelis, kidnap – PM briefs foreign diplomats about current IDF op, demands world condemn Hezbollah, says terror group only has a few dozen precision missiles in its vast arsenal – by Raphael Ahren – “Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Thursday that Hezbollah seeks to send “entire battalions” into Israel, including via the tunnels Israel is now tackling, in order to seize land, and kidnap and kill Israelis… The senior officer who briefed reporters echoed this assessment. The cross-border tunnels ‘are wider and larger, and their goal is to transfer entire battalions, large forces, into Israeli territory, in order to come in and carry out killing sprees and kidnappings and to capture Israeli towns and villages,’ this officer said… ‘If Hezbollah knew that we knew [about the existence of the tunnels] then this would accelerate their kidnapping efforts, and we did not want to get to a situation where the kidnappers infiltrate into Israel and abduct a soldier or a civilian, and no one would know anything about it,’ the senior official added.” – Comment: The Israelis apparently excel at mind-reading…

Ideal for newcomers to the series and loyal fans alike, this collection includes Among the Hidden, Among the Impostors, Among the Betrayed, Among the Barons, Among the Brave, Among the Enemy, and Among the Free.” – Comment: These are children’s books!

China blacklists millions of people from booking flights as ‘social credit’ system introduced – by Harry Cockburn – https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/china-social-credit-system-flight-booking-blacklisted-beijing-points-a8646316.html – “The plan stated: ‘We will improve the credit blacklist system, publicly disclose the records of enterprises and individuals’ untrustworthiness on a regular basis, and form a pattern of distrust and punishment.’.. For those deemed untrustworthy, ‘everywhere is limited, and it is difficult to move, so that those who violate the law and lose the trust will pay a heavy price’… The credit system is already being rolled out in some areas and in recent months the Chinese state has blocked millions of people from booking flights and high-speed trains.”

Air Force Wants AI Tools to Solve Surveillance Gluthttps://www.meritalk.com/articles/air-force-wants-ai-tools-to-solve-surveillance-glut/ – “Specifically, the service is looking to fuse Multi-intelligence, or Multi-INT, which can consist of data in multiple formats from manned and unmanned aircraft, satellites, and ground stations, as well as other sources. The volume and variety of that data can leave analysts unable to parse it all and knowledgeably help inform the decision-making process. So the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) has issued a Request for Information looking for input from industry, academia, and other government labs on applicable tools that are available or in development… The Air Force’s Next Generation ISR Dominance Flight Plan, signed in July this year, states that the service “must have the architecture and infrastructure to enable machine intelligence, including automation, human-machine teaming, and ultimately, artificial intelligence,” which will define the service’s Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) efforts going forward… ‘Technology components designed to support SIAS will need to ingest, reason over, and inform both analysts and other emerging technologies designed to automate both ISR database queries and physical collection,’ the RFI states.” (emphasis added)

LOUIS • City officials announced Friday that they had finalized the transfer of 97 acres north of downtown to the federal government for the construction of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s $1.7 billion western headquarters, capping nearly four years of work assembling the site for one of the city’s largest economic development projects in decades… Ultimately, NGA leaders indicated a desire to stay in the urban core as a way to recruit tech talent and attract private companies that support the agency’s mission. That, coupled with what some saw as the Obama administration’s commitment to urban renewal, allowed the city to retain the facility despite the daunting task of buying out dozens of property owners and clearing land that had held generations of residents… In a statement, NGA Director Robert Cardillo called it a “historic day.”.. ‘Building upon our history in St. Louis, the new campus in North City will enable NGA to deliver our mission through the end of the century and beyond,’ he said.” (emphasis added) – “The NGA answers to the Office of Director of National Intelligence and is charged with tracking everything that moves on planet earth. It is the ultimate in total surveillance in order to ‘master the human domain’ ” -Patrick Wood of Technocracy.news

Mueller CAUGHT Hiding Evidence BOMBSHELL News Would Clear Trump! Send Mueller To JAIL NOW! – From Gary Franchi (10 min)

Who Believes in Conspiracy Theories?https://forbiddenknowledgetv.net/who-believes-in-conspiracy-theories/ (w/video 17 min) – “What the data say to me is that currently, people who are technically more “conservative” in the sense of being more conformist and unquestioning of authority are those who agree with the politics of the “Left”, while those who are more independent-minded and anti-Esablishment poll to the “Right”, which some may find surprising.”

Pompeo Warns Russia Has ’60 Days’ to Comply With Nuclear Missile Treatyhttps://www.voanews.com/a/us-to-withdraw-from-nuclear-arms-treaty-unless-russia-returns-to-compliance/4686478.html – “The United States has warned Russia that it has 60 days to show that it is complying with the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or the U.S. will quit the agreement… Speaking at a NATO Foreign Ministers’ meeting in Brussels Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington’s patience had run out… ‘It makes no sense for the United States to remain in a treaty that constrains our ability to respond to Russia’s violations. Russia has reversed the trajectory of diminishing nuclear risk in Europe,’ Pompeo told reporters… He accused Russia of deploying ‘multiple battalions of the SSC-8 missiles’ — land-based, intermediate-range Cruise missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. Moscow has denied deploying such weapon systems.” – Comment: Pompeo is lying, pure and simple. The U.S., as Putin has repeatedly pointed out since 2015, has deployed launchers on the Russian border that are capable of being fitted with existing nuclear missiles in less than 24 hours. Russia has not deployed the SSC-8 launchers that Pompeo accuses them of. But don’t worry though, Pompeo is not really Bat-Shit Crazy. It’s all just political theater.

Uber-loser Poroshenko goes “full Saakashvili” – by The Saker – http://thesaker.is/uber-loser-poroshenko-goes-full-saakashvili/End of the (very fine) article: “At this point in time, there is no way to predict whether the Ukronazi junta will attack for real or not. So, as I have done several times in the past, I will conclude with this passage from the Quran: “and they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill ‘Iesa (Jesus)], and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of the planners” (verse 54 of Chapter 3 “Surah Al-‘Imran”); other translations say “And the unbelievers schemed [against Jesus]; but God brought their scheming to nought: for God is above all schemers” and “And (the unbelievers) plotted and planned, and Allah too planned, and the best of planners is Allah“. At a time when the Neocons are trying to convince the planet that Islam, not them, is the biggest danger to our planet, it is good to show them that not everybody is drinking their cool-aid; besides, in this case the Quran is simply right: God is the best of planners and the Ukronazi disbelievers (and their Neocon bosses) will eventually find this out, probably the hard way.”

A “Little Ice Age” Is Where We Are Heading, According To Multiple Scientists – by Arjun Walia – https://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/12/03/a-little-ice-age-is-where-we-are-heading-according-to-multiple-top-scientists/ – “A few years ago, the National Astronomy Meeting in Wales was held, where Valentina Zharkova, a mathematics professor from Northumbria University (UK), presented a model that can predict what solar cycles will look like far more accurately than was previously possible. She states that the model can predict their influence with an accuracy of 97 percent, and says it is showing that Earth is heading for a “mini ice age” in approximately fifteen years… Zharkova and her team came up with the model using a method called “principal component analysis” of the magnetic field observations, from the Wilcox Solar Observatory in California. Looking forward to the next few solar cycles, her model predicts that from 2030 to 2040 there will be cause for a significant reduction in solar activity, which again, will lead to a mini ice age. According to Zharkova. You can read more about that here… Again, these are just a few examples of multiple scientists pointing to these facts.”

U.S. Attorney Takes First Step toward Prosecuting Explosive Destruction of World Trade Center on 9/11 – by AE911Truth Staff – https://www.ae911truth.org/news/503-u-s-attorney-takes-first-step-toward-prosecuting-explosive-destruction-of-world-trade-center-on-9-11Comment: This article is from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth) is a continuation of, IMO, their very strange campaign for what I would call a separate Truth, where they can present a world in which. while the facts that they would prefer to emphasize remain front and center in our attention, other, more cognitively challenging observations of the evidence of that fateful day remain entirely out of sight, and beyond consideration. I speak in particular of the work of Dr. Judy Wood as presented in her, again IMO, very fine book Where Did the Towers Go? in which she presents what I consider incontriverable evidence that some kind of force, presumably from an unknown weapon, was used in the destruction of all three of the main towers at the World Trade Center complex, buildings 1, 2 & 7. Anyone who’s seen the videos of the section of core columns from the attack of the North Tower on 9/11 will be aware that something unique in physics happened that day. For more extensive evidence you can see steel beams dissolving to dust in 2 to 3 seconds while falling in mid aiir at 46 min. in the video of her talk at the Breakaway Energy Conference (https://youtu.be/ermHx3akejc). The reason this is vitally important is that it widens the context of the events from architecturally correct thermite and squibs in New York to a mammoth meticulously planned operation, with mystery technology, the explosions and destruction of the Pentagon, no plane at Skanksville, Urban Moving Systems in New Jersey, the BBC in London interviewing Jane Standley, W Bush at Booker Elementary School, the tapes of U.S. Air Traffic Control destroyed and thrown in the trash, the 5 dancing Israelis, etc. ad nauseum. Richard Gage of AE911Truth doesn’t want that, and is among the very many people who want to keep 9/11 in a tiny frame and attack Judy Wood mercilessly at every opportunity. Whatever you do don’t look over there. From the article on the U.S. Attorney’s case:The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life… Attorney Mick Harrison, Litigation Director, stated: ‘The failure of our government to diligently investigate this disturbing evidence has contributed to the erosion of trust in our institutions. The Lawyers’ Committee felt it was our duty as public citizens to submit this evidence to the U.S. Attorney for submission to the Special Grand Jury.’ ” – Comment: Quite prim and proper, don’t you think?

Breaking: U.S. Forces In Al-Tanaf Strike Syrian Army Positionshttps://southfront.org/breaking-u-s-forces-in-al-tanaf-strike-syrian-army-positions/ – “Syrian pro-government activists confirmed that positions of the SAA’s 21st Brigade were hit with 14 rockets. The rockets were reportedly launched from the U.S. M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) deployed at al-Tanaf base.” – Comment: This attack is a very big development. It’s the first time that the U.S. has actually attacked the Syrian Arab Army on the ground, without any prospect of their standard “It was a mistake” denials of their airstrikes. This is a bald-faced international crime. Expect further developments.

Ukraine Provokes Russia to What End? – by Tony Cartalucci – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/ukraine-provokes-russia-to-what-end.html – “Attempts to claim Russia’s reaction to the 2014 coup is in breech of Ukraine’s sovereignty or that the repatriation of Crimea to Russia is a violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity when regime change in Kiev in 2014 itself already eliminated both – has exhausted the credibility the West needs to complete this latest leg of its agenda in Ukraine… Washington’s international order – predicated on “might makes right” now backfires as Washington finds it is no longer the “mightiest.” However, a reckless, waning hegemon is the most dangerous variety. Ukraine and its Western sponsors lack the diplomatic, economic, and military means to pressure Russia in any sort of measured, incremental manner – leaving only reckless thrusts and thus the possible provocation of a truly catastrophic conflict as an alternative… For Russia, time is on its side. More than securing its interests and protecting the people of the Russian Federation and those using the Sea of Azov, including those residing in Russian Crimea – Moscow faces the full-time occupation of parrying Washington’s wild thrusts and preventing aggressive and increasingly deadly geopolitical competition from transforming into catastrophic war.”

Secession from the European Union – by Thierry Meyssan – http://www.voltairenet.org/article203998.html – “The member states of the European Union seem unaware of the clouds that are gathering above their heads. They have identified the most serious problems of the EU, but are treating them with nonchalance, and fail to understand what the British secession (Brexit) implies. They are slowly sinking into a crisis which may only be resolved by violence.” – Comment: By far the best concise analysis I’ve read yet of the intra-European political maneuvering around Brexit and the instabilities with Eurozone countries like Poland, Hungary, Italy, Spain and Greece.”

The Final Push for Idlib Will Come Soon – by Federico Pieraccini – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/11/23/final-push-for-idlib-will-come-soon.html – “Russian and Syrian efforts have been moving in two very specific directions over the last few weeks. While Moscow supplies Damascus with new equipment in preparation for the future advance on Idlib, Putin and his entourage continue diplomatic efforts to draw more of Syria’s enemies closer to the Russia-Iran-Syria axis. The meeting that brought about the demilitarized zone included Macron and Merkel, the Europeans having evidently come to terms with the impossibility of overthrowing the legitimate government of Syria. Macron and Merkel were offered a way out of the Syrian conflict, decoupling themselves from the belligerent stance of the United States, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The intention is to usher Paris and Berlin towards the same direction Qatar, Turkey and Jordan have been progressively gravitating. Certainly, these are not countries to be considered friends of Damascus. Rather, they are parties with whom a constructive dialogue needs to be entered into in order to advance common diplomatic interests.”

The Pinnacle of the Pyramid of Wealth and Power: the Buck Stops Here – by Daniel Edgar – https://southfront.org/the-pinnacle-of-the-pyramid-of-wealth-and-power-the-buck-stops-here/ – “Nonetheless, despite their size and power it turns out that these three financial monstrosities (JP Morgan, Citibank and HSBC) are themselves simply an intermediate and secondary level of control that are in turn owned by a very select and limited number of shareholders, principal among which are Vanguard Group, Inc., BlackRock, Inc,, State Street Corporation, Fidelity Management & Research (FMR LLC) and Capital Research & Management Co… A recent report by Medea Benjamin and Nicolas Davies (“War Profiteers: The U.S. War Machine and the Arming of Repressive Regimes”) discusses five of the largest weapons producers that have profited most from the ‘War on Terror’ (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and General Dynamics), an open-ended and unwinnable war in military terms that appears set to provide them with many more billions of dollars (often from cost-plus, no-bid contracts), presumably until they finish off what is left of the planet. The same financial entities that own substantial stakes in JP Morgan, HSBC and Citigroup (as well as Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley) are also prominent amongst the largest shareholders of all of the arms companies: Vanguard and BlackRock in particular are at the top of the list of the largest shareholders of all five pillars of the perpetual warfare complex (as well as many of the smaller arms companies), followed by State Street Corporation (4), Capital Research & Management Co. (2), Newport Trust Co. (2), FMR LLC (2), Bank of America (2) and T. Price Rowe Associates (2).” Comment: A comprehensive look at the ownership and management of the “Military Industrial Complex.”

Russian Warplanes Eliminate Militants Responsible For Chemical Attack On Aleppohttps://southfront.org/russian-warplanes-eliminate-militants-responsible-for-chemical-attack-on-aleppo/ – “Syrian opposition sources confirmed that Russian warplanes conducted several airstrikes on the districts of Rashideen and Khan Tuman northwest of Aleppo. Both districts are controlled by the Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL)… More than one hundred civilians, including children, were reportedly intoxicated as a result of the chemical attack on Aleppo. The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said that the attack was carried out with rockets containing chlorine gas… The Russian airstrikes, which are the first since September, will likely deter the militants and force them to respect the deconfliction agreement.”

America Sweepwalking Toward Fascism? – by J.Hawk – https://southfront.org/america-sweepwalking-toward-fascism/ – “Therefore, if one is to use US history as a guide, it is evident that whenever the social tensions threatened to boil over, the US political system responded with expanding the police state, experimenting with social democracy, or expanding into a frontier or some collapsing empire, starting with that of Spain in the late 19th century. But the authors of the study seem unaware of the role of government policies with perceptible, tangible impact on ordinary citizens when it comes to building a sense of shared identity under which violent internal conflict is unlikely. Instead of looking back upon history to see how earlier US leaders dealt with the fraying of the US polity, they limit themselves to calling for political leaders to use uniting rather than divisive rhetoric, activists to appeal to underlying shared values, philanthropists investing in “thousand points of light”, and other palliative pseudo-solutions. Which means they have not grasped the core of the problem.” (emphasis added)

British Government Runs Secret Anti-Russian Smear Campaigns – by Moon of Alabama – https://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/11/british-government-behind-secret-anti-russian-disinformation-campaign.html – “The Initiatives Orwellian slogan is ‘Defending Democracy Against Disinformation’. It covers European countries, the UK, the U.S. and Canada and seems to want to expand to the Middle East… On its About page it claims: ‘We are not a government body but we do work with government departments and agencies who share our aims.’.. The now published budget plans show that more than 95% of the Initiative’s funding is coming directly from the British government, NATO and the U.S. State Department. All the ‘contact persons’ for creating ‘clusters’ in foreign countries are British embassy officers. It amounts to a foreign influence campaign by the British government that hides behind a ‘civil society’ pseudo-NGO… The organization is led by one Chris N. Donnelly who receives (pdf) £8,100 per month for creating the smear campaign network.”

IMF Reveals That Cryptocurrency Is The New World Order Endgame – by Brandon Smith – http://www.alt-market.com/articles/3581-imf-reveals-that-cryptocurrency-is-the-new-world-order-end-game – “Lagarde’s latest piece is written like a sales pitch, selling the idea of central bank crypto not to central bankers, but to the financial media. The media will undoubtedly run with the talking points Lagarde suggests and regurgitate them in a blaze of articles as to why global crypto controlled by the IMF is the solution to all our fiscal problems… The very core of the movement toward global crypto, I believe, is the destruction of anonymity in trade through a “cashless society”. When all trade is watched, all trade can be controlled. Beyond this, by monitoring trade transactions on a macro-scale, globalists can also, in a way, monitor mass psychology and predict public behavior to a point.”

Local law enforcement using mysterious new tool to unlock cellphones – by Jim Otte – https://www.whio.com/news/local/local-law-enforcement-using-mysterious-new-tool-unlock-cell-phones/W9zAfzQXrFsJmOJjO04TJK/ – ” ‘For the foreseeable future I think it’s going to be a bit of an arms race,’ Salisbury said… Will the use of cellphone hacking machines end up being dealt with by Congress?.. Salisbury said it may begin there, but perhaps any new law will not be the end of it… ‘I would be inclined to think there will be legislation and that legislation will be tested by somebody. That means we wind up in the Supreme Court,’ Salisbury said… The hacking devices come at a steep price. One of them, from Grayshift, costs $15,000 for limited usage. Another model runs $30,000 and can be used to unlock an unlimited number of phones. Apple’s latest block of the device only applies to the newest phones. The Cellebrite and Gray Key devices can still bypass the passcode on older phones.”

U.S. Silently Passes And Signs Bill To Create New Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency – by Aaron Kesel – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/u-s-passes-signs-bill-new-cybersecurity-infrastructure-security-agency.html – “A bill silently passed through Congress and to U.S. President Donald Trump’s desk that was signed right before Thanksgiving last week, which would re-designate the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) into a new agency called the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA.).. The bill known as the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act swiftly passed in Congress in October; and last week, H.R. 335 advanced through the House Of Representatives without any resistance and barely any media attention. Trump signed the bill into law almost immediately after the legislation passed the House… As part of the DHS, the NPPD was the government entity in charge of physical and cybersecurity of federal networks and critical infrastructure. The previous agency also oversaw the Federal Protective Service (FPS), the Office of Biometric Identity Management (OBIM), the Office of Cyber and Infrastructure Analysis (OCIA), the Office of Cybersecurity & Communications (OC&C), and the Office of Infrastructure Protection (OIP).”

The Canadian MEDIA $600M BAILOUT Exposed! — What You NEED To Know! – from Dan Dicks (w/video 8 min) – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/the-canadian-media-600m-bailout-exposed-what-you-need-to-know.html – ” ‘The Trudeau government has just announced a $600M media Bailout with a series of “tax credits and incentives” for the dying dinosaur press! The dying legacy media who are losing viewership to the independents like yours truly are about to be bailed out with your tax dollars.’.. Similar to the surveillance-industrial complex that uses tax dollars to enslave its own population, the power of the State will now be used to make people pay for their own brainwashing.”

CIA Has “Smoking Gun Phone Call” Of MbS Giving Order To “Silence” Khashoggi: Report – The crown prince gave an instruction to silence Khashoggi as soon as possible and this instruction was captured during CIA wiretapping. – by Tyler Durden – http://theduran.com/cia-has-smoking-gun-phone-call-of-mbs-giving-order-to-silence-khashoggi-report/ – “Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Daily News said on Thursday the CIA has a recording of a phone call in which the crown prince gave instructions to “silence Jamal Khashoggi as soon as possible.” The possible existence of such a tape could put Trump in an awkward position if its contents are leaked given his consistent defense of MbS amidst the scandal and growing calls for accountability.”

(Russian Foreign Minister Sergey) Lavrov Sounds the Alarm… Again! Washington Foreign Policy Simply WAR by Other Means! (6 min) – Lavrov speaking in Portugal yesterday:

ICAN vs. HHS: Key Legal Win Recasts Vaccine Debatehttps://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ican-vs-hhs-key-legal-win-recasts-vaccine-debate-300712629.html – “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has admitted that, in direct violation of Federal law, it failed to provide a single vaccine safety report to Congress for thirty years, according to Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN)… This acknowledgement comes after eight months of stonewalling from HHS following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from the nonprofit ICAN, and its founder Del Bigtree. ICAN sought copies of the reports HHS was required to submit to Congress every two years, starting in 1988, detailing improvements it made to vaccine safety. ICAN was represented by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr… ICAN sued HHS in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, demanding that the reports be shared with the public. HHS eventually conceded that those reports do not exist and the Court entered an order confirming this concession… ‘The 1986 National Childhood Vaccination Injury Act granted economic immunity to pharmaceutical companies for vaccine injuries and hence eviscerated their economic incentive for them to take responsibility for vaccine safety,’ says Bigtree. ‘Market forces driving vaccine safety were simply eliminated.’ ”

UN environment chief resigns after frequent flying revelations – by Damian Carrington – https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2018/nov/20/un-environment-chief-erik-solheim-resigns-flying-revelations – “The Guardian understands Solheim was asked to resign by the UN secretary general, António Guterres. Sources at the UN Environment Programme (Unep) said that countries unhappy with Solheim’s conduct were holding back tens of millions of dollars, threatening a financial crisis at the body… A draft internal UN audit leaked to the Guardian in September found Solheim had spent almost $500,000 (£390,000) on air travel and hotels in just 22 months, and was away 80% of the time. The audit said this was a “reputation risk” for an organisation dedicated to fighting climate change… A UN staff union leader called some of the revelations “mind-blowing” and a prominent climate scientist accused Solheim of “obscene CO2 hypocrisy”.”

From the What-Would-A-Rabbi-Do? Desk: Ending the current measles epidemic: Haredi rabbis get it right – by Sharon Galper Grossman – https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/ending-the-current-measles-epidemic-haredi-rabbis-get-it-right/ – “Contemporary rabbinic authorities have taken a strong stand on the obligation to vaccinate, including Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv who considers parental refusal to vaccinate against measles as negligence, Rabbi Asher Weiss who defines the obligation to vaccinate as a form of communal responsibility, and Rabbi Mordechai Halperin, who classifies a person who refuses vaccination as an indirect murderer and a mazzik — one who damages, a subcategory of gezel (theft). Rabbi Herschel Schechter has stated that the obligation to vaccinate stems from the principle dina d’malchuta dina, the obligation to follow the law of the land. However, the most recent statements issued by Haredi rabbis, particularly in Israel, take an even stronger position on vaccination, calling for vaccination in the strongest terms and severely vilifying those who refuse. Their position is unequivocal. Everyone must vaccinate and they must vaccinate immediately.”

The BBC: vaccine critics are a “virus” – by John Stone – https://www.nexusnewsfeed.com/article/health-healing/the-bbc-vaccine-critics-are-a-virus/ – ” ‘The clear and unambiguous message that Newsnight appears to wish to put across in this piece is that all vaccines are 100% safe and only ill-informed individuals think otherwise. The view that not all vaccines are 100% safe is portrayed as only being held by individuals who are not sufficiently educated to know otherwise. They are somehow slaves to internet scare stories. The message is given that doctors are aware of ‘facts’ which demonstrate that all vaccines are 100% safe. No ‘facts’ of any sort are given or discussed. The three chosen experts have no background in either science or vaccine safety. The two in the studio are charged in their everyday lives (jobs) with the responsibility of assuring individuals that vaccines are 100% safe. The third guest appears to have no relevant expertise in vaccine safety beyond the opinion that vaccines are safe and only individuals that believe in conspiracy theories think otherwise. The only other individual interviewed (by Grossman) is the discredited ‘journalist’ Brian Dear… This piece of reporting is clearly stating the message that all vaccines are 100% safe and that anyone who might question this is at best ‘uninformed’ and at worst a dangerous anti-vaxxer.’ -Professor Christopher Exley PhD FRSB” – Comment: Exley presents substantial material from the NewsNight broadcast. Below his letter of complaint, The “non-denial denial” response from the NewsNight “Complaints Director” uses multiple arguments taken directly from the Vaccine Industry to belittle the information from Exley before concluding that “I do not believe there are grounds for me to uphold your complaint.” In defending an article on how the “scientific vaccine community” are losing the information war on the questionable practice, perhaps the NewsNight defense is an ineffective move.

US-backed Kurdish Armed Groups Open Fire At Arab Protesters In Syria’s Al-Haskah Provincehttps://southfront.org/us-backed-kurdish-armed-groups-open-fire-at-arab-protesters-in-syrias-al-haskah-province/ – “Members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have opened fire at Arab protesters in the area of Ash-Shaddadi in the Syrian province of al-Hasakah, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported on November 20 citing local sources… According to the report, the protests started three days ago but the situation escalated on November 19 when several mortar shells launched by the YPG-led force hit civilian houses. The shells were fired during drills at the nearby shooting range… According to reports from other sources, 3 civilians were injured as a resulf of this incident. This situation caused a new round of protests against the local Kurdish-controlled administration.”

Trump Releases Official Statement On Khashoggi Murder. Iran Is Guiltyhttps://southfront.org/trump-releases-statement-on-khashoggi-murder-iran-is-guilty/ – “The main points of the statement: 1) “The world is a very dangerous place!” 2) Iran is guilty of destabilizing the situation in the Middle East 3) Hezbollah is also guilty 4) The Houthis are very guilty that they are resisting to the Saudi invasion in Yemen 5) Bashar al-Assad – as always… bloody “dictator”, “who has killed millions of his own citizens” 6) Israel – a great country 7) The crime against Jamal Khashoggi – “terrible” 8) Mohammed bin Salman ordered the murder? – “maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!” 9) Multi-billion deals with Saudi Arabia – remain in force 10) Sanctions against Saudi Arabia – what sanctions? 11) Washington already sanctioned “17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder”. I.e. made no practical steps to punish the Saudi regime.”

Western Weapons, Equipment And Instructors Flood Ukraine In Sign Of Further Tensions With Russia https://southfront.org/western-weapons-equipment-and-instructors-flood-ukraine-in-sign-of-further-tensions-with-russia/ – “On November 20, the Daily Telegraph reported that the UK is going to increase its military support to the Kiev government. This effort will include the deployment of British troops in Ukraine and sending a British Navy ship to the country…’As long as Ukraine faces Russian hostilities, it will find a steadfast partner in the United Kingdom,’ British Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson will say announcing the move according to the Tory-supporting Telegraph, who have apparently been provided with access to Williamson’s speech… These developments come ahead of an expected further escalation in relations between Ukraine and Russia. The Sea of Azov is the main point of tensions between the two sides besides the region of Donbass. Over the past year, Ukraine has undertaken a series of hostile steps toward civil ships under Russian flag in the Sea of Azov.” (emphasis added)

Once Again: US-led Coalition Strikes Targets In Euphrates Valley With White Phosphorushttps://southfront.org/once-again-us-led-coalition-strikes-targets-in-euphrates-valley-with-white-phosphorus/ – ” ‘Warplanes of the international coalition led by the U.S. carried out airstrikes with white phosphorus bombs on residential areas in Hajin, in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, killing and injuring many civilians,’ local sources told the SANA… The exact number of casualties was not revealed. However, the SANA said that over 100 civilians were killed in the US-led coalition bombing on the Euphrates Valley during the last seven days only… This was not the first time the US-led coalition is accused of using international prohibited weapons during its operation in the Euphrates Valley. Last month, several people were reportedly killed and injured when coalition warplanes dropped white phosphorus bombs on residential areas in the valley. Back then, Syrian and Russian officials called for an international investigation of this incident.”

Mattis: U.S. Will Establish Observation Posts On Syrian-Turkish Borderhttps://southfront.org/mattis-u-s-will-establish-observation-posts-on-syrian-turkish-border/ – ” ‘We are putting in OPs [observation posts] up in northern Syria, this is a change now. We are putting in observation posts in several locations up along the Syria border … We want to be the people to call the Turks and warn them if we see something coming out of an area that we’re operating in,’ Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon, according to the Turkish Anadolu Agency… Mattis also said that U.S. forces in Syria are coordinating with the Turkish military and will continue to do so through the observations posts.”

CALIFORNIA DEW ATTACKS: NWO Globalists Can’t Believe They Got Away With So Much Mass Murder and Destructionhttp://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=108712 – “Now the power elite know they will be able to get away with virtually any scheme that they attempt from this point forward. They are confident that the populace has been successfully socially engineered so that they will not put up a fight. Rather, the U.S. citizenry has demonstrated that it will permit the most egregious crimes against their person and property.”

Ministers say Israel close to retaking Gaza, Hamas leaders’ days are numbered – Security cabinet members Gilad Erdan, Yoav Gallant, and Israel Katz call for targeted killings of terrorist group’s leaders – by Raphael Ahren – https://www.timesofisrael.com/ministers-say-israel-close-to-retaking-gaza-hamas-leaders-days-are-numbered/ – “Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said that Israel is “closer than ever” to re-occupying the coastal enclave and ‘must move from defense to offense,’ which he clarified means ‘targeted killings of the terrorist leaders of Hamas’ military wing.’.. ‘And it means being willing to capture and hold the Gaza Strip, until we dismantle the terrorist infrastructure,’ said Erdan, a member of the security cabinet, speaking at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in the capital.”

Erdogan, MBS, Islamic leadership and the price of silence – by Pepe Escobar – http://www.atimes.com/article/erdogan-mbs-islamic-leadership-and-the-price-of-silence/ – “The House of Saud’s ties to the Khashoggi slaying are being milked by the Turkish President for maximum benefit amid debate on leadership of the Islamic world and how the crisis may affect US and Saudi strategy in the Middle East Ibrahim Karagul – never afraid to apply a Rabelais touch – is always useful as a mirror reflecting the state of play of AKP circles around Erdogan… For this political elite, a breakthrough in the Erdogan-conducted “Death By a Thousand Leaks” is imminent, allegedly proving that Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) directly gave the order for the killing and slaying of Jamal Khashoggi… The consensus among the AKP leadership – confirmed by independent Left academics – is that the US-Israel-House of Saud-UAE axis is deep in negotiations to extricate MBS from any culpability… (end of article): No one can possibly advance the endgame. But that carries the strong possibility of a dominant, Erdogan-led Turkey all across the lands of Islam, allied with Qatar and also with Iran. Plus all of the above enjoying very close geopolitical and economic relations with Russia. Expect major fireworks ahead.” (emphasis added)

History of Shaken Baby Theories Exposed: How an Elite Group of Pediatric Radiologists Started Medical Kidnapping in the 1940shttp://healthimpactnews.com/2018/history-of-shaken-baby-theories-exposed-how-an-elite-group-of-pediatric-radiologists-started-medical-kidnapping-in-the-1940s/ – ” ‘The bones tell the story,’ or so the saying goes. But do they tell the full story?.. The discovery of the x-ray in 1895 gave rise to a group of doctors who claimed to be able to read the x-rays and find the subtle signs of child abuse that everybody else missed… It took decades for their rhetoric to be accepted by the public, but when it was finally embraced, it was not long after that The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act of 1974 (CAPTA) was passed by a bipartisan Congress, establishing what we now know as Child Protective Services… Most historians trace the modern era of Child Welfare to the landmark paper, “The Battered-Child Syndrome” by Dr. C. Henry Kempe and his colleagues, published in 1962.” (emphasis added)

Brussels rejects Italy budget, paves way for sanctionshttps://www.rt.com/business/444530-brussels-rejects-italy-budget/ – “The Commission confirms the existence of a particularly serious case of non-compliance,” the EU said in its annual review of euro-area nations’ spending plans referring to Italy’s 2019 budget. ‘With what the Italian government has put on the table, we see a risk of the country sleepwalking into instability.’.. Brussels has repeatedly voiced concerns over Rome’s borrow-and-spend plans, warning the Italian government that it could trigger another debt crisis that would hurt them all… Rome has argued that boosting growth is the best way to bring down Italy’s debt-to-GDP ratio of over 130 percent… Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said that he won’t compromise on the budget plan’s core items like pension reform, citizens’ income, and lower taxes. He told reporters in Rome that he is, however, willing to make small changes in areas like investments, on which he is “open to dialogue with everyone.”.. Italy could now face penalties from the European Union if it does not adjust its budget.”

Planet of War – Still Trapped in a Greater Middle Eastern Quagmire, the U.S. Military Prepares for Global Combat – by Danny Sjursen – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50635.htm – “The U.S. was still bombing, raiding, and “advising” away in several of those old haunts as I entered the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Nonetheless, when I first became involved in the primary staff officer training course for mid-level careerists there in 2016, it soon became apparent to me that something was indeed changing.With Pentagon budgets reaching record levels — some $717 billion for 2019 — Washington has stayed the course, while beginning to plan for more expansive future conflicts across the globe. Today, not a single square inch of this ever-warming (credulity alert) planet of ours escapes the reach of U.S. militarization… Think of these developments as establishing a potential formula for perpetual conflict that just might lead the United States into a truly cataclysmic war it neither needs nor can meaningfully win. With that in mind, here’s a little tour of Planet Earth as the U.S. military now imagines it… ● Our Old Stomping Grounds: Forever War in the Middle East and Africa; Poking the Bear: Encircling Russia and Kicking Off a New Cold War; ● Challenging the Dragon: The Futile Quest for Hegemony in Asia; ● No Land Too Distant(some emphases added)

https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/a-thanksgiving-fable-for-our-time.html – “Captured Consumers: As Americans everywhere sit down to celebrate Thanksgiving in their homes, many will be using wireless devices to disconnect from those near and connect with those from afar, or perhaps not even loved ones from afar, but to individual entertainment and distraction – each to his own device… Some portion of Americans are addicted to their wireless devices, including children. The addiction is by design. Screen time is altering children’s well-being… An un-quantified portion of individuals are already experiencing biological changes in their physiology associated with their use of wireless devices. Some recognize the association. Others hold a presumption of innocence towards their beloved wireless, even if they have symptoms, not unlike an individual on the slippery slope of becoming an alcoholic… Many Americans will continue to hold their cellphones against their heads, and tablets on their laps. Many will be searching the Internet on a wireless device for additional wireless devices for holiday gift giving, including faster and more powerful modems and phones and connected smart home devices.”

Climate Alarmists’ Temperature Data Erroneous and Incomplete, Says Researcher – by Michael Tennant – https://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/environment/item/30277-climate-alarmists-temperature-data-erroneous-and-incomplete-says-researcher – “Climate-data researcher Dr. John McLean performed what is believed to be the first-ever audit of the primary global temperature dataset used by the IPCC, known as HadCRUT4. Yes, you read that correctly: In all the years climate alarmists have been relying on HadCRUT4, no one ever bothered to examine the data to determine whether it was accurate and reliable. According to McLean, ‘It is neither of those things.’ ”

(RELATED: Beyond Guns: Democrats Introduce Bullet Control Bill)… He further threatened that the nukes are ‘legit.’ ”

Dozens of migrants disappear in Mexico as caravan pushes northward – by Luis Gómez Romero – https://mexiconewsdaily.com/opinion/dozens-of-migrants-disappear-in-mexico/ – “Earlier this month, two trucks from the caravan disappeared in the state of Veracruz, Mexico. One person who escaped told officials that about “65 children and seven women were sold” by the driver to a group of armed men… Mexican authorities are searching for the migrants, but history shows that people missing for more than 24 hours are rarely found in Mexico – alive or at all.”

American Cancer Society Seeks $11 Billion to Pursue an 80% Gardasil Vaccination Rate Among U.S. Children – by Kate Raines and Barbara Loe Fisher – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/american-cancer-society-seeks-11-billion-to-pursue-an-80-gardasil-vaccination-rate-among-u-s-children/ – “The American Cancer Society (ACS) has set an aggressive goal to achieve an 80 percent uptake rate among American children with two doses human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine by 2026… To gain that coverage, 14 million more preteen children would need to complete the two-dose series, for a total of 57.62 million doses above and beyond the number of vaccinations given to date… HPV vaccine is one of the most expensive vaccines on the CDC recommended childhood vaccine schedule, costing a pricey $168 to $204 per dose, with Merck being the sole producer of HPV vaccine (Gardasil) in the U.S.” – Comment: Where are the sealed indictments when you need them?

The group contends that the use of mercenaries in this way violates Article 7 of the ICC’s Rome Statute, which bans the ‘enforced disappearance of persons…with the intention of removing them from the protection of the law.’ They also cite the same article’s prohibition on transferring people by force ‘from the area in which they are lawfully present, without grounds permitted under international law.’ ” – Comment: Apparently there are a range of new strategies being brought to bear by the Atlanto-Zionist interests to finally solve the “Syria problem.”

From the Danger-Danger-Will-Robinson Desk: US promises to ‘disrupt’ oil shipments to Syria, sanctions Russian & Iranian companieshttps://www.rt.com/usa/444472-us-sanctions-russian-iranian-firms-syria/ – “The Treasury Department claims that the individuals and companies sanctioned are involved in a “complex and malign scheme” to bolster the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. It claims that oil is imported into Syria from Iran in defiance of American sanctions. The Syrian government then allegedly transfers cash to Islamic militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah, at Iran’s direction.”

The links above are selected from about 2 pages of a search (“california fires dew directed energy weapon”) on DuckDuckGo. Perusal of such a list of links might be considered “obsessive” by some. However, if there are valid uses of a global communications medium like the Internet, I would argue that they would include digging into things one is curious about. I would also posit that it’s more than appropriate to be curious about very anomalous evidence of extreme harms being perpetrated against the denizens of your own geographical region. It seems clear to me that just a couple of hours of such an investigation using web searches will provide anyone with a modicum of critical thinking faculties and who can operate a computer (or smart phone should one be so unfortunate as to have one) with ample evidence that we have now entered an era unprecidented in recorded human experience (outside of the Vedas maybe) in which devastating warfare is being unleashed against populations all over the planet, invisibly, with no warning. Does anyone really think that it would be unusual or pathological to be curious and highly concerned about this? No one on these chats, I think, has any expectation for the active staff of PanTerra to protect us from this new menace in human affairs, or to present garden-variety Panterrans with an out-of-the-box solution. However, to not be actively tracking it and at the same time suggesting that anyone who is doing that is “obsessive” is, to me, disturbing. In my opinion, this is a valid subject for discussion about just what we’re actually facing, who may be responsible, how our fellow humans are coping with it, what options for response may be, and what the implications for us all are. Enough said.

The US Would Rather Burn the Middle East in a Sunni-Shia War Than See Itself Outplayed by Russia – by Elijah J. Magnier – https://russia-insider.com/en/us-would-rather-burn-middle-east-sunni-shia-war-see-itself-outplayed-russia/ri25387 – “The Saudi monarchy is well aware of the US need to sell them weapons. Indeed, Saudi media threatened the US – in the aftermath of the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi – to cease all hostilities towards Iran if Washington were to insist on accusing a Saudi top official (MBS) of the horrible kidnapping and murder. This shows that Saudi animosity towards Iran is a double edge weapon used by both the US and the monarchy to reach their own sometimes mutually conflicting objectives. Saudi officials are happy to continue feeding Trump the sums of money he wants as long as he allows Saudi Arabia a free hand in the region, mainly against Yemen.”

CIA concludes Saudi crown prince ordered Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination – by Shane Harris, Greg Miller and Josh Dawsey – https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-concludes-saudi-crown-prince-ordered-jamal-khashoggis-assassination/2018/11/16/98c89fe6-e9b2-11e8-a939-9469f1166f9d_story.html?utm_term=.74e4cb3ddcf7 – “The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally. A team of 15 Saudi agents flew to Istanbul on government aircraft in October and killed Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate, where he had come to pick up documents that he needed for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman… In reaching its conclusions, the CIA examined multiple sources of intelligence, including a phone call that the prince’s brother Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, had with Khashoggi, according to the people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the intelligence. Khalid told Khashoggi, a contributing columnist to The Washington Post, that he should go to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve the documents and gave him assurances that it would be safe to do so.”

Geoengineering, the Space Fence, and the Advent of Transhumanism – by Elana Freeland – https://home.solari.com/geoengineering-the-space-fence-and-the-advent-of-transhumanism/ – “But what of “science” during all of this politicizing of the climate? Control over scientists and the various institutions of the scientific apparat has been tight since the Paperclip Nazi takeover at the beginning of the Cold War. The peer review system has been utterly co-opted by the military-industrial-intelligence complex that controls the purse strings and thus favors some theories and scientists while banishing others to the outer darkness of non-publication and stonewalled careers.”

The Genius Neuroscientist Who Might Hold the Key to True AI – by Saun Raviv – https://www.wired.com/story/karl-friston-free-energy-principle-artificial-intelligence/ – “Even Friston has a hard time deciding where to start when he describes the free energy principle. He often sends people to its Wikipedia page. But for my part, it seems apt to begin with the blanket draped over the futon in Friston’s office. It’s a white fleece throw, custom-printed with a black-and-white portrait of a stern, bearded Russian mathematician named Andrei Andreyevich Markov, who died in 1922. The blanket is a gag gift from Friston’s son, a plush, polyester inside joke about an idea that has become central to the free energy principle. Markov is the eponym of a concept called a Markov blanket, which in machine learning is essentially a shield that separates one set of variables from others in a layered, hierarchical system. The psychologist Christopher Frith—who has an h-index on par with Friston’s—once described a Markov blanket as ‘a cognitive version of a cell membrane, shielding states inside the blanket from states outside.’ ”

Take a Good Look, America. This Is What the Reckoning Looks Like – by Matt Simon – https://www.wired.com/story/climate-change-reckoning/ – ” We can point to the wind or the lack of rainfall to explain the flames laying waste to Californian homes. But the devastation of this month’s fires is ultimately a product of a warming world. The climate change reckoning is here… This is what inaction looks like. You probably did notice, though, that California is burning. The contribution of climate change to this evolving disaster isn’t speculative—it’s pretty obvious in the data. ‘Some folks will say, well, a few degrees of temperature increase, fires are burning at 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, how can that possibly make a difference?” says UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain. The warming manifests in what’s known as the vapor-pressure deficit (comment: science you don’t understand). ‘So essentially how much water the atmosphere wants to suck out of the living vegetation.’.. The reality is that California may now be looking at a nearly year-round fire season, especially in Southern California. ‘There’s a lot of evidence backing that up,’ says Swain. ‘What is definitely true is that the fire season has lengthened, and not just by a little bit, but pretty dramatically by months relative to what it was just a few decades ago.’ ” (emphasis added)

Backed by Ocasio-Cortez, Youth Climate Activists Arrested at Pelosi’s Office Demanding Democrats Embrace ‘Green New Deal’ – by Jessica Corbett – https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/11/13/backed-ocasio-cortez-youth-climate-activists-arrested-pelosis-office-demanding – “Youth climate activists with the Sunrise Movement and Justice Democrats were arrested on Capitol Hill Tuesday for staging a sit-in at the Washington, D.C. office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)—who is expected to serve as the next speaker of the House… Long a demand by the climate justice movement—and popularized in the latest election cycle by incoming progressive Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Antonio Delgado of New York, Deb Haaland of New Mexico, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota—a Green New Deal would pair actions to address the global climate crisis with policies to create jobs and a more just economy… ‘I just want to let you all know how proud I am of each and every single one of you for putting yourselves and your bodies and everything on the line to make sure that we save our planet, our generation, and our future. It’s so incredibly important,’ Ocasio-Cortez told the crowd of activists on Tuesday. ‘We do not have a choice. We have to get to 100 percent renewable energy.’ ” – Comment: This “action” is represented as a major positive by Common Dreams. But to anyone paying attention, attaining “100% renewable energy” using the “alternative” technologies permitted to the bonded sureties of the global imperium (solar panels and wind power) is not feasible financially. Most likely many millions of people would die from starvation and exposure to the (cooling) elements if such a regime is forced on humanity.

Spain Unveils ‘Groundbreaking’ Plan to Slash Emissions and Transition to 100% Renewable Energy by 2050 – by Jessica Corbett – https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/11/13/spain-unveils-groundbreaking-plan-slash-emissions-and-transition-100-renewable – “Spain’s government on Tuesday unveiled “groundbreaking” plans to transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050, dramatically slash planet-warming emissions, and outlaw new fossil fuel exploration… Under the new draft law, Spain aims to draw at least 70 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2030 and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent from 1990 levels. By 2050, the nation would rely solely on sustainable sources and cut emissions by as much as 90 percent… ‘By planning on going carbon neutral Spain shows that the battle against climate change is deadly serious, that they are ready to step up, and plan to reap the rewards of decarbonization.’ —Laurence Tubiana, European Climate Foundation” – Comment:Someone is obviously under the impression that Spain can be kept under the control of the dissembling globalist regime until the mid-century, denying the Spanish people the use of high-energy fuels based on the specious contention that “fossil fuels” are causing “carbon emissions” that are driving warming that threatens planetary civilization. People must wake up from the hegemony of liars to reclaim thier quality of life. The question is how this will happen.

ELECTION THEFT 2018: Deep State Democrats Stole Every Election In Sighthttp://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=108101 – “No Constitutional Republic or Representative Democracy Even Exists without Fair Elections. Period… Do we all understand the preceding statement? Not only must it be properly understood, this fact of political life needs to be acted on before the American Republic is no more. Many say it (already) is no more… Trump’s wrecking ball: If ever there was a job for President Trump’s wrecking ball, it’s the election system and electoral process… Truly, this is perhaps his greatest task… If he doesn’t knock down the present system, it will come back to haunt him in 2020. ‘The globalists know that, if the status quo continues with regard to America’s elections, they will be able to steal the 2020 POTUS election. On the other hand, if the Right demands that Trump reform the entire process, it will be considerably more difficult for the Democrats to rig 2020.’ (Source: Deep State had to change the topic of conversation across the Internet from the “pervasive election thefts by Democrats”)

California Fires: Directed Energy Weapons? Smart Meters?by Truther Girls (10 min)

SMART Meters Being Used To Implode Buildings in California During Firestorms – “The Most Selective Wildfires in Recorded History” – http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=108181 – “One thing is for sure: those homes were not burned to the ground. There is no evidence of fire damage, but a LOT of evidence of either an implosion or an explosion in some other cases. Investigators on the ground have reported all sorts of anomalies which include the vaporization of different parts of the buildings. Some parts of the structure are virtually disappeared whereas other things are left perfectly intact. This destructive phenomenon simply does not occur with a regular fire, particularly a wildfire… The photos at the link below tell a story about these California wildfires that is far different from the official narrative. In point of fact, they prove that directed energy weapons (DEWs) are being routinely utilized to destroy homes, businesses and other property all over the state… The fact that they (unknown culprits) have gotten away with these stealth attacks up until now is quite extraordinary. How have the perps been able to elude detection with so many photos on the Internet showing that fires are not the cause of destruction to so many buildings (7000+ and counting just this November)?”

Saudi Arabia Has Plans To Assasinate Senior Iranian Officials Including General Soleimani: NYThttps://southfront.org/saudi-arabia-has-plans-to-assasinate-senior-iranian-officials-including-general-soleimani-nyt/ – “Saudi intelligence officials, close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman discussed a plan to assassinate senior Iranian officials, including General Qassem Soleimani, according to a NYT report published on November 11th… The outlet cited three unnamed sources familiar with the discussions. According to them, the discussions happened at a time when MbS was consolidating power and directing his advisers to escalate military and intelligence operations outside the kingdom. If the rumors are true that means that top Saudi officials have been considering assassinations ever since the Crown Prince’s ascended to power.”

That’s what we’ve been told. Everyone should know that,’ he said… Corsi is one of at least nine Stone associates who have been interviewed by Mueller’s team, which has been investigating whether anyone in President Trump’s orbit coordinated with WikiLeaks in its release of Democratic emails allegedly hacked by Russian operatives… Corsi added that he believes Mueller’s team is persecuting him because of his outspoken opposition to the investigation and defense of President Trump… ‘The Department of Justice is run by criminals,’ Corsi said, adding: ‘I think my crime really was that I supported Donald Trump. Now I guess I’ll go to prison for the rest of my life, because I dared to oppose the “deep state.” ‘ ”

A total of 297 dead birds were collected. Poor birdies! (Source)… However, birds were not the only wildlife seemingly affected: [N]earby ducks that were swimming seemed to react very oddly as well; they were simultaneously putting their heads underwater to escape the radiation while others flew away, landing on the street or in the canal... It appears a 5G mast was being tested to see what interferences could occur from …’where RF radiation was tested with a peak frequency of 7.40 GHz’, as reported by one source, but still not confirmed.”

D.C. Bureaucrats Are Trying to Make Parents Get a License to Let Children Play Together – by Kerry McDonald – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/d-c-bureaucrats-are-trying-to-make-parents-get-a-license-to-let-children-play-together.html – “Back in the 1970s, a group of parents got together to create an informal playgroup for toddlers in DC in a spare room of a local church. Over the last 40 years, groups of parents and their two-year-olds have enjoyed these three-hour playgroups, which children can attend up to three days a week. The playgroup is staffed by parents of the kids who attend, and they take turns watching the children. There is no paid staff… According to a recent Washington Post article written by Karin Lips of the Network of Enlightened Women, ‘Some DC government officials now are trying to regulate the program, which they contend is an illegal child-care facility.’ The Office of the State Superintendent of Education investigated the playgroup cooperative in early September and issued a statement saying the group is violating child care facility laws and must get a license to operate… In DC and elsewhere, government officials should stay clear of telling parents what to do or how to organize. We don’t need a license to let our children play.”

European Central Bank In Panic Mode as Economy Stalls – by Andrew Moran – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/european-central-bank-in-panic-mode-as-economy-stalls.html – “A recession is inevitable – both in the United States and in Europe. Unlike the last economic contraction, the ECB will be out of bullets, unless it wants to experience rampant inflation and a currency crisis. European nations are deeply in debt, running budget deficits and witnessing putrid results. There isn’t much left for these bloc members to do, except employ pro-market measures, like rolling back aggressive spending efforts, paying off the debt, and cutting taxes… Draghi and Co. have only exacerbated the eurozone’s problems by adopting easy-money, inflationary policies. Now that it has fired all the big guns to barely achieve 2% quarterly growth, the ECB is out of bullets, unable to do anything more. Governments can only raise the white flag of surrender and propose their own secession from the currency bloc. To save yourself from drowning on this sinking ship, an exit from the eurozone may be the only reasonable solution.”

Intense clashes with Gaza break out as Hamas commander said killed in IDF raid – Palestinian media reports at least 7 killed, more injured, during Israeli operation in Khan Younis; IDF confirms ‘exchange of fire broke out’, rockets fired at south – by Judah Ari Gross – https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-said-to-kill-senior-hamas-commander-in-gaza-drone-strike/ – “Intense clashes with Gaza break out as Hamas commander said killed in IDF raid… Palestinian media reports at least 7 killed, more injured, during Israeli operation in Khan Younis; IDF confirms ‘exchange of fire broke out’, rockets fired at south… Israeli special forces conducted a raid in the Gaza city of Khan Younis on Sunday night, apparently killing several suspected Hamas terrorists, including a senior commander in its military wing, and bringing the region back to the brink of war… The IDF later confirmed that a special forces officer was killed and another injured in the raid. The military censor prevented news of the IDF officer’s death and the second officer’s injuries from being published until their families could be notified.”

The ‘War Party’ Wins the Midterm Elections, Accelerating the Transition to a Multipolar World Order – The outcome of the American midterm elections gives us an even more divided country, confirming that the United States is in the midst of a deep crisis within its establishment – by Federico Pieraccini – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/11/10/war-party-wins-midterm-elections-accelerating-transition-multipolar-world-order.html – “Getting one’s legislative agenda passed with the House in the hands of one’s opponents is difficult at the best of times. For Trump the task becomes almost impossible… For this reason, we are faced with a scenario that delivers the country to the war party, that faction composed of Republicans and Democrats who respond to the interests of specific conglomerates of power and not to the citizens who elected them. The real winners of the midterms appear to be the intelligence agencies, Wall Street and the banks, the ratings agencies, the Fed, the mainstream media, think-tanks, policy-makers, and the military-industrial complex. Donald Trump has come to discover, in his first two years as president, how little autonomy he has in foreign policy, thanks to the warmongering of the US establishment.”

France’s Macron denounces nationalism as a ‘betrayal of patriotism’ in rebuke to Trump at WWI remembrance – by David Nakamura, Seung Min Kim, &, James McAuley – https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/to-mark-end-of-world-war-i-frances-macron-denounces-nationalism-as-a-betrayal-of-patriotism/2018/11/11/aab65aa4-e1ec-11e8-ba30-a7ded04d8fac_story.html – “Speaking in French, Macron emphasized a global order based on liberal values is worth defending against those who have sought to disrupt that system. The millions of soldiers who died in the Great War fought to defend the “universal values” of France, he said, and to reject the ‘selfishness of nations only looking after their own interests. Because patriotism is exactly the opposite of nationalism.’.. Macron has attempted to stand as a vocal counterweight to Trump, who recently called himself a “nationalist” and has moved to set the United States apart from global treaties, including the Iran nuclear deal, the Paris climate accord and a U.N. program for refugees… Amid growing divisions in Europe that have strained the European Union, Macron defended that institution and the United Nations, declaring the “spirit of cooperation” has ‘defended the common good of the world.’ ”

Why the U.S. Military is Woefully Unprepared for a Major Conventional Conflict – by Brian Kalman, Daniel Deiss & Edwin Watson – https://southfront.org/why-the-u-s-military-is-woefully-unprepared-for-major-conventional-conflict/ – “After a decade of fighting an insurgency in Afghanistan and almost as long in Iraq, the U.S. leadership decided to destroy the sovereign nation of Libya, and foment a war in Syria immediately afterward. There is no doubt with the knowledge of historic events today, that the CIA and State Department facilitated a foreign invasion of Syria of Islamist radicals. They funded and armed these groups, provided clandestine training, and facilitated the logistical movement of fighters and weapons into a sovereign nation to cause its disintegration. In these two examples they decided not to occupy these countries, but to destroy all semblance of ordered society and replace it with brutally violent chaos. The U.S. political and military leadership seems to have learned that their past adventurism resulted in costly occupations, yet instead of refraining from using the military option as a tool to alter geopolitical realities they did not like, they merely opted to abandon the responsibility of occupation and reconstruction all together.”

ZigBee is a low-energy consumption data transfer protocol. It is being implemented by many manufacturers working on the creation of the “Internet of Things,” (Beast?) widely touted particularly by people like David Petraeus who are connected to the Pentagon side of the Deep State. ZigBee is the core comm protocol used by the very exotic and, incidentally, illegal to install according to the “rules” of the Admin System®, AMI Smart Meters, as they are not, and cannot be, UL Approved. Smart Meters started to “roll-out” in South East Asia (Indonesia among others), two years before they reared their heads here in the U.S., so they are apparently crucial to <someone’s> plans for a global deeply linked device network. – What is ZigBee? (3 min) https://youtu.be/yBgcYT1riz8 – And, yes, as Cal Washington said, the replacement of analog electric meters with AMI Smart Meters is a violation of the existing adhesion contracts for electric service, unless replacement is accepted with silence and abject compliance. – Note: The installation of Smart Meters is war by other means. It is not, IMO, taking a stance in an enemy-construct to notice the enmity with which statist actors and corporate structures that piggyback on statist enforcement monopolies are moving toward the enslavement of humans on Earth Their motivations and planning are amply demonstrated in their own publications, conferences, and documentation. Refusing state surveillance is self-defense, fully lawful and ethical under Natural Law and the higher jurisdictions that Cal Washington mentions.

American Citizen Detained by Trump Admin Without Charge for More than a Year Finally Set Free – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/11/american-citizen-detained-by-trump-admin-without-charge-for-more-than-a-year-finally-set-free.html – “The story of his illegal secret detainment would have been lost to the pages of history if not for the reporting of The Daily Beast which first revealed his existence to the public. The Washington Post later revealed that the man was captured in Syria on September 12, 2017. He reportedly surrendered to a rebel group in Syria before being give to the U.S. military. According to The Washington Post, as told by anonymous “officials familiar with the case,” the Justice Department did not believe they had enough evidence to bring charges against him. The ACLU eventually stepped in to represent the man, despite attempts by the government to prevent the man from gaining access to legal representation.”

Six lawsuits against FCC’s 5G idiocy – that $2bn windfall for telcos – is bundled into one appeals court sueball – by Kieren McCarthy – https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/11/07/fcc_5g_lawsuits_bundled/ – ” At the heart of the mass challenge is the FCC’s recent decision to override state and local governments and insist there be a single flat-fee for installing new 5G cell nodes, as well as standardized national processes and contracts for approving new sites… On top of that, the FCC is also being sued [PDF] by three telecoms operators – the very companies that the measure was supposed to benefit – because they claim it didn’t go far enough… AT&T, Verizon and Sprint say the FCC rules should have included so-called “deemed granted” (note: often the “shot clock”) provisions that would cause a new cell site to be automatically approved once the imposed application timelines had been passed… Otherwise they will be forced to sue if local authorities miss the deadline – and that’s a big waste of their time and money, the telcos cry.”

Asymmetrical Warfare and 4GW: How Militia Groups are America’s Domestic Viet Cong – from Ammo.com – http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/asymmetrical-warfare-and-4gw-how-militia-groups-are-americas-domestic-viet-cong_11072018 – “The Militia Movement and 4GW – No discussion of 4GW in the United States would be complete without touching on the militia movement, something specific to the U.S. While Europe has a history of factions in the military who oppose the government (the French Secret Army Organization is the most famous of these), it does not, to nearly the same extent as the United States, have men actively training in the woods getting ready for civilizational collapse or 4GW… The militia movement began in the early 1980s, when it was known as the Posse Comitatus movement. It exploded (no pun intended) after the attack on the Oklahoma City Federal Building and the showdown at Ruby Ridge. By the mid-1990s, the militia movement had a presence in all 50 states and was comprised of approximately 60,000 people… Note that the militia movement is no longer limited to the political right. Left-wing organizations have begun openly training with arms since the election of Donald Trump as President in 2016. In any kind of 4GW scenario in the United States, it’s likely that these two strains of the militia movement would come into conflict with each other, as well as the United States government. And don’t forget about the narcissism of small differences that tends to plague fringe political movements – the most bitter enemies in a 4GW conflict in the United States will likely be competing factions of left- and right-wing political movements.”

Edward Snowden: Israeli software tracked Khashoggi – by Yonah Jeremy Bob – https://www.jpost.com/International/Edward-Snowden-worlds-most-wanted-fugitive-appears-in-Israel-571227 – “Technology made by an Israeli company was used to target groups of journalists in Mexico and other problematic areas, including slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Edward Snowden, the infamous “whistle-blower” who leaked classified NSA information, told a conference in Israel on Tuesday. Snowden spoke via video-conference from an undisclosed location in Russia to the closed audience… Snowden accused the Israeli NSO firm of “selling a digital burglary tool” and said that even if some good actors are using their software, ‘it is not just being used for catching criminals and stopping terrorist attacks…not just for saving lives, but for making money…such a level of recklessness…actually starts costing lives.’.. It was NSO’s software, he said, that was used to track Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul last month. The infamous leaker said he had succeeded in pushing the discussion of liberal democratic governments ‘collecting and abusing our data’ saying ‘it is being talked about more…when you move from conspiracy theory to fact – the conversation changes.’.. Furthermore, he said that the approach of regular citizens’ telephone calls and emails could lead to intelligence agencies making the wrong decisions when there are complex calls to make… Attacking the surveillance state as not bringing security, he said: ‘Surveillance is not about safety. Surveillance is about control.’ ”

America Goes to War – Fighting Russia, China and al-Qaeda simultaneously requires more money – by Philip Giraldi – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50574.htm – “Two recent stories in particular demonstrate just how far Washington has gone towards accepting that war has more-or-less become a natural condition for the United States of America. The first is an article ‘After years of fighting insurgencies, the Army pivots to training for a major war” that has largely been ignored, regarding how the U.S. military is changing its doctrine and training to enable it to fight a major war against a powerful national opponent.’.. The second article, also little commented on, made plain that the “competitive” army that is now evolving won’t be just some pretty toy sitting on a shelf unused. The former US commander in Europe from 2014-7 retired Lt. General Ben Hodges spoke at the Warsaw Security Forum on October 24th, where he told NATO allies that they would have to increase defense spending because the United States will not be able to protect them against a “resurgent Russia” while it is fighting China. He predicted that the U.S. will probably be at war with China within 15 years to protect its interests in the Pacific region.”

NIH greatly expands investment in BRAIN Initiativehttps://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-greatly-expands-investment-brain-initiative – “The National Institutes of Health announces funding of more than 200 new awards, totaling over $220 million, through the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative, an exciting trans-agency effort to arm researchers with revolutionary tools to fundamentally understand the neural circuits that underlie the healthy and diseased brain. Supported by the Congress through both the regular appropriations process and the 21st Century Cures Act, this brings the total 2018 support for the program to more than $400 million, which is 50 percent more than the amount spent last year. Many of the new awards explore the human brain directly. Furthermore, the NIH is trying to leverage some BRAIN Initiative advances to help tackle the pain and opioid crisis… Examples of these new awards include the creation of a wireless optical tomography cap for scanning human brain activity; the development of a noninvasive brain-computer interface system for improving the lives of paralysis patients; and the testing of noninvasive brain stimulation devices for treating schizophrenia, attention deficit disorders, and other brain diseases. All these awards can be found on the new NIH BRAIN Initiative website.”

Willis, 60, answered his door in the 100 block of Linwood Ave. at 5:17 a.m. with a gun in his hand, Anne Arundel County police said. He initially put the gun down next to the door, but “became irate” when officers began to serve him with the order, opened the door and picked up the gun again, police said… ‘A fight ensued over the gun,’ said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis, a police spokeswoman… One of the officers struggled to take the gun from Willis, and during the struggle the gun fired but did not strike anyone, police said. At that point, the other officer fatally shot Willis, police said.”

Trump’s Sanctions Against Iran Appear to Have Failed – If there will be increasing resistance in the EU, then it is even possible that Iran’s oil-sales will mushroom.- by Eric Zuesse – http://theduran.com/trumps-sanctions-against-iran-appear-to-have-failed/?mc_cid=5cced0afec&mc_eid=6264e00852 – “Visual shows there main importers of Iran’s oil: China, India (together 50% of total), EU (20%); they’re all now safe to restore to pre-Trump-sanctions levels, so that Iran will possibly exceed its current (which are based on fears they’d not get a waiver) oil-sales. Trump’s sanctions, in any case, look like a failure… If there will be increasing resistance in the EU, among the nations that Trump is discriminating against (by not granting waivers), then it is even possible that Iran’s oil-sales will mushroom. For example, China consumes 587.2 million tonnes of oil this year, and Iran has the world’s third-largest oil-reserves. That consumption is globally second-largest only to America’s 907.6 million tonnes of oil consumption. China now can easily replace some of its other suppliers.”

Minister: Israel might destroy Syrian S-300s, even if manned by Russians – by Stuart Winer and staff – https://www.timesofisrael.com/minister-israel-might-destroy-syrian-s-300s-even-if-manned-by-russians/ – “Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin, who is also co-chair of the Russia-Israel Intergovernmental Commission, told Russian media Monday that it was a “big mistake” for Moscow to supply its ally Syria with the S-300 missile system, because the advanced missiles, which are considered a significant threat to Israeli air power in the area, ‘might lead to destabilization of the situation.’.. Israeli leaders have vowed to continue carrying out strikes in Syria amid tensions with Russia over the downing of the Russian military reconnaissance plane, though no airstrikes have been attributed to Israel since the September 17 incident… Elkin cautioned that “considering the mess” that the Syrian army was in, the Syrians cannot be trusted to operate the equipment correctly and may end up shooting down an ‘Israeli military or commercial plane over Israeli territory.’ ”

Mother fights to have son removed from chemotherapy after clean bill of health – by Kristin Thorne – https://abc7ny.com/health/mom-fights-to-have-son-removed-from-chemo-after-clean-bill-of-health/4604675/ – “Candace Gundersen’s son, Nick Gundersen, 13, is receiving court-ordered chemotherapy at NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola. He’s now in the custody of Suffolk County Child Protective Services… Gundersen of Huntington said Nick was diagnosed by doctors at Cohen Children’s Medical Center with acute leukemia in June 2018. Gundersen said she asked doctors if she could get a second opinion before Nick began chemotherapy on June 30th… ‘They told me if I didn’t consent to the treatment they would call CPS and have me removed and my son would have the treatment anyway,’ Gundersen said. ‘So I signed the consent.’.. Gundersen, who’s a holistic wellness coach, said Nick was hospitalized for 30 days and suffered an adverse reaction to the chemotherapy… ‘He lost over 20 percent of his body weight. He developed typhlitis, which is a life-threatening bowel infection, he had fluid in both his lungs, he was bedridden. He stopped breathing on numerous occasions, he was on oxygen,’ she said… He was discharged on July 24 and continued with outpatient appointments until August 29th. On August 29th, doctors tried to admit Nick but his mother refused. A doctor there called CPS. Cohen Children’s Medical Center did not return Eyewitness News’ request for comment… On September 2, Gundersen said police officers and CPS showed up at her house at 3:30 a.m. and seized Nick and forced him to return to Cohen. On September 11th, Gundersen had Nick transferred to NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, where he continued with chemotherapy.”

Colombia Denies Report of Pressuring Brazil’s Bolsonaro to Invade Venezuela – by Ben Kew – https://www.breitbart.com/latin-america/2018/10/31/colombia-denies-report-of-pressuring-brazils-bolsonaro-to-invade-venezuela/ – “Bolsonaro has promised to help anti-socialist Venezuelans reclaim their country and oppose the socialist dictatorship there. Brazil and Venezuela previously enjoyed close relations during the administrations of the late Hugo Chávez and now imprisoned Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva… During his campaign, Bolsonaro pledged to help international efforts to liberate Venezuelans from the Maduro dictatorship, whose corruption and socialist policies have left the once thriving country in an unprecedented humanitarian crisis… ‘I have had conversations with other authorities from other countries, they have brought up the subject of Venezuela, and they ask that Brazil participate in one way or another to solve the problem. After all, it is our brothers who are suffering from the dictatorship of Maduro,’ Bolsonaro said in an interview with Record TV on Monday.” – Comment: It doesn’t appear that Columbia, who have just sent another 5,000 troops to the Venezuelan border for a total of at least 17 thousand so far, really needs to pressure Bolsonaro to “help international efforts to liberate Venezuelans from the Maduro dictatorship.” (emphasis added) – Of course the overwhelming majority of the Venezuelans who voted for, and support Maduro have no bearing on Maduro’s role as dictator (similarly to the situation with the “brutal regime” of the Dictator Assad.

Re: Trump & Pike – And Why the Tavistock Institute exists – Trump & Pike – And Why the Tavistock Institute exists “According to this report, in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial collapse caused by the outright systemic corruption emanating from the US Federal Reserve System that infected the entire Western world’s banking system for the benefit of the American “shadow government”, a powerful American-British Freemason cabal arose, headed by Donald Trump, to restore “sanity” into this system in order to, in essence, “save the world from itself”… Having begun large land purchases in Scotland, this report continues, Donald Trump, in 2010, gathered around him the most powerful Freemasonic force ever seen in modern times in a bid to first save the United Kingdom’s banking system, and, as he envisioned Scotland would soon break away and become an independent nation, the entire world’s economy could then be saved from the Freemason’s new economically impenetrable Scottish stronghold.”

Questions: 1) Does the Federal Reserve actually benefit “the American ‘shadow government’?” 2) I think it’s pretty clear that all of the secret societies of the world were penetrated and controlled from the tops of their hierarchies by the Illuminati, after the Illuminatti were proscribed by Bavaria and forced to go underground. The nature of Masonic-type groups is ideal for such controls. So, how does “a powerful American-British Freemason cabal” suddenly break free of these controls to essentially go to war with systemic global “corruption?” There is powerful evidence that Donald Trump has had very deep state connections with the CIA/Maffia milieux since at least his acquisition of Resorts International Corp., a CIA front. He used Resorts Int’l. to bring gambling to Atlantic City, so that he could profit from the legal transfer of the wealth of the rubes to build his empire. 3) Where did Trump suddenly get religion and decide to build an America that works for the little people? 4) What is the original source of the “Trump & Pike article ?

Regarding the “Venezuelan Situation,” I think that many people, possibly including Donald Trump, are misinformed and confused as to actual information about what’s happening there. From Mr. Trump’s executive order: “…particularly in light of actions by the Maduro regime and associated persons to plunder Venezuela’s wealth for their own corrupt purposes, degrade Venezuela’s infrastructure and natural environment through economic mismanagement and confiscatory mining and industrial practices, and catalyze a regional migration crisis by neglecting the basic needs of the Venezuelan people…” This statement reflects the popular propaganda on the Chavista administration, but is a long way from the truth. I know that the current popular wisdom, at least on the “anon, alt-right” end of things, is that Socialism = Bad. However, another perspective would be that Kakistocracy = Worse. For more detailed information on the current Venezuelan moment I would commend you to the Florida Maquis youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDow765I-QrmVp9Kfz0HqGA where these issues have recently been covered in some detail. It is apparent, among other things, that another violent coup, possibly using foreign armies, may be in the offing. This would explain the timing of this order by Trump.

Maybe Trump is misinformed, but even he knows the difference between a sovereign nation and one that is not. If this administration helps overthrow the Maduro regime, it’s just more proof that Trump is not in control and is just another puppet. Catherine Fitt’s latest money report discusses that his administration is pushing for another Sauid prince to take over as fallout for Khashoggi’s killing in Turkey. The US cannot chance any leaks about the true culprits for 911.

An AI Lie Detector Is Going to Start Questioning Travelers in the EU – by Melanie Ehrenkranz – https://gizmodo.com/an-ai-lie-detector-is-going-to-start-questioning-travel-1830126881 – “In Hungary, Latvia, and Greece, travelers will be given an automated lie-detection test—by an animated AI border agent.

From the It-Can’t-Happen-Here Desk: A Senior Russian Diplomat Confirms: “Russia Is Preparing for War” – Is Anybody Listening? – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/a-senior-russian-diplomat-confirms-russia-is-preparing-for-war-is-anybody-listening/ – ” ‘Recently at a meeting the United States stated that Russia is preparing for war. Yes, Russia is preparing for war, I can confirm it. Yes, we are preparing to defend our homeland, our territorial integrity, our principles, our values, our people. We are preparing for such a war. But there is a major difference between us and the United States. Linguistically, this difference is just in one word, in both Russian and English: Russia is preparing for war while the United States is preparing a war.’ (emphasis added)… But for all our efforts, we have been “voices crying in the wilderness” which is hardly surprising since even Putin’s blunt warning during his March 1st speech to the Russian Federal Assembly was quickly dismissed as “posturing” and quickly forgotten. This is why two weeks following that historical speech I compared Russia to a peaceful rattlesnake (yes, they are peaceful creatures!) desperately trying to warn a drunk idiot to back-off but to no avail: the drunk idiot just boastfully declares “hold my beer and watch this” and tries to grab the snake… May, Trump, Macron and Merkel, of course, but also their sycophantic presstitutes and the herds of zombified followers all believe in their invulnerability and superiority. The terrifying truth is that these folks have NO IDEA whom they are dealing with nor do they understand the consequences of pushing Russia too hard. Oh, in theory they do (yeah, yeah, Napoleon, Hitler, we know!). But in their guts, they feel safe, superior and just can’t conceive that they can die, and their entire society can just disappear.”

By Way Of Deception – False Flag Terror Acts Press Europe To Sanction Iran – by Moon of Alabama – https://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/11/by-way-of-deception-false-flag-terror-acts-press-europe-to-sanction-iran.html – “The most interesting question about such plots is always “Cui bono?”. Who benefits from these incidents?.. Iran has no interest in causing any upheaval with Europe shortly before the second round of U.S. sanctions, which threaten its economic well being, come into place early this month. Iran already took revenge for the Ahvaz attack. It has no need to tackle some unrelated separatist who resides in Denmark. Iran needs Europe to work around the U.S. sanctions. That aim prohibits any such operations… Both, the MEK plot as well as the case in Denmark, smell of false flag incidents. In both case no one was hurt. In both cases some stooges with no current relation to Iran were caught. Both cases came to light after information was allegedly provided by Mossad… But is it really Israel who set up these incidents? Both serve U.S. interest just as much. It is no secret that the U.S. wants to prevent European subversion of U.S. sanctions on Iran.”

That is the bet that multiple defense contractors are placing, anyway, as they race to build unmanned aircraft that can pass evolving airworthiness certifications and replace police helicopters. And if that bet pays off, it will radically transform the way cities, citizens, and law enforcement interact… Unlike many new industries, which grow unfettered until emerging problems prompt regulation, unmanned flight needs relief from existing restrictions in order to blossom, Scassero said. Once that happens, the market for large unmanned planes could be enormous.”

He claims that vaccinating children represents a higher moral imperative than respecting the informed consent rights of parents… ‘I want to point out a moral stance that I don’t think has gotten enough attention, which is that every child has the right to be vaccinated,’ said Caplan. ‘We keep talking about parents’ right to say yes or no, to avoid mandates or requirements, or to do what they choose to do. Someone has to speak up and say, “Well, what about the kids? Don’t they have any rights?” ‘ ”

But right now, you can have significant impact on both the deficit and the national debt by cutting government spending on the discretionary programs.’.. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office forecasts the budget gap will reach $973 billion in fiscal 2019 and exceed $1 trillion the next year. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. predicts the deficit will reach $1 trillion and $1.125 trillion respectively.” (emphasis added) Comment: And that’s the “budget gap” that they admit to…

From the Rust-Never-Sleeps Desk: Startling new research finds large buildup of heat in the oceans, suggesting a faster rate of global warming – by Chris Mooney and Brady Dennis – https://www.washingtonpost.com/energy-environment/2018/10/31/startling-new-research-finds-large-buildup-heat-oceans-suggesting-faster-rate-global-warming/ – “Over the past quarter-century, Earth’s oceans have retained 60 percent more heat each year than scientists previously had thought, said Laure Resplandy, a geoscientist at Princeton University who led the startling study published Wednesday in the journal Nature. The difference represents an enormous amount of additional energy, originating from the sun and trapped by Earth’s atmosphere — the yearly amount representing more than eight times the world’s annual energy consumption… In the scientific realm, the new findings help resolve long-running doubts about the rate of the warming of the oceans before 2007, when reliable measurements from devices called “Argo floats” (correction: actually they are called Argo buoys) were put to use worldwide. Before that, differing types of temperature records — and an overall lack of them — contributed to murkiness about how quickly the oceans were heating up… The new research does not measure the ocean’s temperature directly. Rather, it measures the volume of gases, specifically oxygen and carbon dioxide, that have escaped the ocean in recent decades and headed into the atmosphere as it heats up. The method offered scientists a reliable indicator of ocean temperature change because it reflects a fundamental behavior of a liquid when heated.(emphasis added) Comment: The article mentions the Argo “float” system where these automated devices in the oceans everywhere constantly descend 2000 ft. and return to the surface to broadcast their direct temperature measurements. The article doesn’t mention Argo measurements again, as these measurements directly contradict the assertions the article is selling. The last highlighted section shows the BS sleight-of-hand where “scientistic” flim-flam tries to make a big lie seem plausible. Real measurements by satellites and the Argo buoys now show the Earth is cooling, as are the oceans. But, GLOBAL WARMING!!!

The EU’s Link Tax Will Kill Open Access and Creative Commons News – by Cory Doctorow – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/the-eus-link-tax-will-kill-open-access-and-creative-commons-news.html – “One of these proposals is Article 11, the “link tax,” which requires a negotiated, paid license for links that contain “excerpts” of news stories. The Directive is extremely vague on what defines a “link” or a “news story” and implies that an “excerpt” consists of more than one single word from a news-story (many URLs contain more than a single word from the headline)… Article 11 is so badly drafted that it’s hard to figure out what it bans and what it permits (that’s why we’ve written to the trilogue negotiators to ask them to clarify key points).

The document states that the Kerch bridge was built illegally, therefore the EP welcomes the council’s decision to impose restrictive measures against the companies involved in its construction. It suggests the creation of the position of special envoy on Crimea and the Donbass region in order to monitor the development of events there. And it warns about wider security implications that directly affect the EU. It demands that Russia ‘immediately end the intensive and discriminatory inspections of vessels and to consider, if necessary, appropriate countermeasures.’ ”

Crows Can Build Compound Tools Out of Multiple Parts, And Are You Even Surprised – by Michelle Starr – https://www.sciencealert.com/crows-are-so-smart-they-can-make-compound-tools-out-of-multiple-parts – “We already knew that corvids – crows and ravens – are capable of reasoning cause and effect, solving multi-step puzzles, planning for the future and even fashioning simple tools out of sticks and paper… But making compound tools is something that has only ever been observed before in primates – specifically, humans and and great apes… Even young humans take several years to be able to learn this skill, because cognitively speaking, it’s actually quite complex.

Why Some Scientists Say Global Warming Is Out and Global Cooling Is In – by Justin Haskins and H. Sterling Burnett – https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2018/10/why_some_scientists_say_global_warming_is_out_and_global_cooling_is_in.html – ” The prestigious academic journal The Lancet published a paper in 2015 that considered health data provided by 13 countries. The examination of 74 million deaths in the study revealed cold weather indirectly or directly kills 1,700 percent more people than warm weather. This strongly suggests that even if humans are responsible for making global climate warmer, they will end up being much better off over the next 30–40 years than they would otherwise be in a colder climate, assuming Zharkova’s theory is correct.”

Bolton Says Russia Should “Stop Interfering” In US Elections And “Get Out” Of Crimea And Donbasshttps://southfront.org/bolton-says-russia-should-stop-interfering-in-us-elections-and-get-out-of-crimea-and-donbass/ – “In an interview with Reuters in Georgia’s Tbilisi, Bolton once again accused Russia of interfering in US elections, and claimed that it should get out of Crimea and Donbass… ‘It will be helpful if they [the Russians] stop interfering in our election … get out of Crimea and the Donbass in Ukraine … stop using illegal chemical weapons to conduct assassination attempts against Russian exiles in the West, and if they would be less intrusive in the Middle East,’ Bolton said…Bolton’s remarks, which include both unfoncrirmed speculations (like assasinations and interfering in US elections) and demands to Russia to abandon its national foreign polciy in key regions, show that the US does not understand or does not want to understand the key motivations behind Moscow’s actions. In the current complicated international situation, this hostile behaviour is openly leading for a further escalation between the US and Russia.”

The Farewell Words of Alexander Hug: The People Living in Donbass Are the Most Resilient I Have Ever Seenhttp://www.stalkerzone.org/the-farewell-words-of-alexander-hug-the-people-living-in-donbass-are-the-most-resilient-i-have-ever-seen/ – “What I have seen – I haven’t seen this elsewhere really – is that the people in the Eastern part of Ukraine are very resilient. And most importantly – and amazingly, in fact – they haven’t developed hate, as I have seen developing in other countries. I can’t predict the date of the end of this conflict, I know that the military aspect of the conflict can be ended rather quickly. And I certainly know that it is not a conflict between the people, and that the decision is a political decision, and nothing else.”

Northeastern Syria. Kurdish Anarchy and Sultan Erdogan Dreams – by Firas Samuri – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/10/24/northeastern-syria-kurdish-anarchy-and-sultan-erdogan-dreams/ – “It (is)worth noting that the illegal practices of Kurds are also underway in other cities in northeastern Syria both in Raqqa and Hasakah provinces. Under the pretext of fighting sleeping cells of ISIS, Asayish security service personnel burned down some glossary stores in Suwaidan Jazira village, whose owners had refused to pay taxes in favour of the Kurds. The meetings of locals, which broke out in response to this outrage, were dispersed with the use of weapons. During the action, several people were killed, including women and children.” – Comment: The Kurds have again drunk the American Kool Aid (ignoring such actions as the U.S. aerial attack on SDF forces a couple of weeks ago that allowed ISIS to raid a village/refugee camp in the Eurphrates Valley and kidnap 700 civilians including Western aid workers) and now seem to believe that they can ethnically cleanse and take a huge chunk of Northeastern Syria to realize their dreams of a Greater Kurdistan. This cannot end well.

Privacy Expert Resigns From Alphabet-Backed Smart City Project Over Surveillance Concerns – by Jennings Brown – https://gizmodo.com/privacy-expert-resigns-from-alphabet-backed-smart-city-1829934748 – ” ‘I imagined us creating a Smart City of Privacy, as opposed to a Smart City of Surveillance,’ Ann Cavoukian, the former privacy commissioner of Ontario, wrote in her resignation letter from Google sister company Sidewalk Labs, reports Global News… A year ago, Waterfront Toronto enlisted Alphabet-backed Sidewalk Labs to create a plan for a smart city neighborhood in the city’s Quayside development. As a consultant for the endeavor, Cavoukian developed a plan called Privacy by Design that was meant to ensure that citizens’ personal data would be protected… But the project has faced skepticism and criticism from the start. In an op-ed published earlier this month, former BlackBerry CEO Jim Balsillie referred to the development as ‘a colonizing experiment in surveillance capitalism attempting to bulldoze important urban, civic and political issues.’ ”

“Polio-like” illness continues to spread across the U.S. and is now far more widespread than previously reported – by JD Heyes – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-23-polio-like-illness-continues-to-spread-across-the-u-s.html – “The NY Daily News reported that children in 22 states have been affected by the condition as health authorities continue to assess its spread and effects… The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not known as a bastion of truth, says that so far this year there have been 62 confirmed cases of Acute Flaccid Myelitis. The first known outbreak of the virus occurred in 2014 but has since reemerged as authorities identified and confirmed 50 cases of the condition between August and October in even-numbered years, the paper reported online… The condition very often begins as what appears to be a respiratory infection but progresses from there very quickly. Over the course of just a few hours, patients have increased difficulty breathing as one or more limbs become paralyzed and they develop a “flaccid weakness,” according to medical definitions of AFM.”

US Central Command Says It Has No Problems With Killing Civilians In Syria If They Are In ISIS-Held Areahttps://southfront.org/us-central-command-says-it-has-no-problems-with-killing-civilians-in-syria-if-they-are-in-isis-held-area/ – ” ‘The determination that was made by the leadership on the ground that this was this mosque was not being used as a mosque,” Votel told reporters traveling with him in Qatar, according to AP. ‘These aren’t hastily made decisions.’.. Additionally, the US-led coalition said that the targeted building was not used as a mosque. The coalition even claimed monitoring of the building “made us aware” of when only ISIS members were present. But this version does not explain dozens of killed civilians there, which are confirmed by both pro-Damascus and pro-opposition sources: the Syrian state news agency SANA and the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).”

Suppressed News of the Ongoing Trial of Monika Shaefer: News of the trial of Monika Shaefer is almost impossible to find. Monika, a Canadian who was arrested at the 3rd trial against courageous German Lawyer Sylvia Stoltz. Sylvia had already served 2 prison sentences – Her first conviction was for insisting on presenting actual evidence at the trial of her client Ernst Zundel, who had published evidence and questions about the history around the events known as “The Holocaust” in Canada, from which he was extradited to Germany under German laws. Stolz’s second conviction was for an amazing speech she gave at a conference in Switzerland in 2012 (for which she received AN 8 MINUTE standing ovation). Monika Shaefer was arrested outside the courtroom in February during a special recess held for her arrest on the first day of Sylvia’s trial in February this year.

Monika was arrested for making a 6 minute video in Canada as an apology to her dead mother for blaming her mother for the failure of the German people to stop the crimes of the Nazis, including the supposed extermination camps, against the Jews. According to this article: https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/reports/1896-imprisoned-in-germany-canadian-woman-on-trial-in-munich-for-questioning-the-holocaust , at least 2 complaints had been made against her video to the Canadian Human Rights Commission. From the article: “B’nai Brith, a Canadian Jewish supremacist group, alerted an intermediary in Germany who then went to police about the video, said Aidan Fishman, a director with the organization. He said that when Schaefer visited the country, she would have been on their radar.”

Monika’s brother Alfred was similarly arrested at the first day of his sister’s trial, and was also indicted for “incitement to hatred,” and they are both in the middle of a trial which has gone on since July. Here is another link from the same source posted by jollydee, from later the same day of the trial in the 2nd week of September – This second video was published Sept. 21, and is the last information I’ve been able to find using the main search engines on the trials: News from the Schäfer-Trial – Day 14a | ACTIVISM –

https://youtu.be/X3WrS0r5drE.

There seems to be a massive blackout of information on Monika and Alfred’s arrests and prosecutions. I can find no published media information on them since August this year. How can such suppression of these very significant cases be maintained and enforced? The “truth” about the persecution of the Jews during WWII can only be official state history. Anything else is a crime under German statutes that have been enforced against people anywhere in the world. As covered in the video posted above, Jewish organizations in Europe and even in Israel are active in enabling these prosecutions, slander and libel trials, government enforced taking down of websites in Canada, and of course vilification of anyone trying to ask unfortunate and proscribed questions.

Again, if anyone wants to start to dig into this huge phenomenon of mass human behavior, Gerard Menuhin (son of the great violinist Yehudi – meaning Jewish – his mother wanted to make his tribal affiliation overt – Menuhin) wrote a phenomenal major work Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil, that starts off covering the destruction of German society following WWII, and then ranges far afield, into past deep history, current events and much more. For me it was a gripping read even at 420 pages.

Breaking News! I just discovered that Menuhin’s book has apparently been banned at Amazon.com, where I bought it a few months ago, and also at used book site ABE Books.. It’s still available at Alibris (for now). AND you can (for a brief time, I suspect) download it for free(!) from google at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-US2sVY7OfzVHZhRFBlMmZQeDQ/view – If you’re at all interested, I would recommend doing it now. Talk about book burnings…

OMG! Just when you thought Elizabeth Warren’s spin on her backfired DNA test couldn’t get more hilarious… – https://twitchy.com/dougp-3137/2018/10/22/omg-just-when-you-thought-elizabeth-warrens-spin-on-her-backfired-dna-test-couldnt-get-more-hilarious/?bt_alias=eyJ1c2VySWQiOiAiMWRkMTFmNTgtN2I1ZS00NmRjLTk4OWEtZjRhZTA0ZDlkY2MyIn0%3D – “Elizabeth Warren says she took DNA test to help rebuild “trust in government” https://cbsn.ws/2NXH7uH… Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Sunday that she changed her mind recently and took a DNA test proving her heritage because Americans’ trust in government is “at an all-time low” and she wanted to help rebuild it by being transparent. The incumbent Massachusetts senator spoke at her second debate against Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl in the U.S. Senate race… In that case, mission UNaccomplished!”

U.S. Withdrawal From Cold War-Era Missile Treaty Would Be A ‘Dangerous’ Step, Russia Sayshttps://www.rferl.org/a/trump-pullout-inf-russia-reagan-gorobachev-nuclear-treaty/29554782.html – “The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) prohibits the United States and Russia from possessing, producing, or deploying medium-range, ground-launched cruise missiles, with a range of between 500 kilometers and 5,500 kilometers… ‘We’re going to terminate the agreement and we’re going to pull out,’ Trump told reporters on October 20 during a campaign stop in Nevada, adding that Washington will not let Russia ‘go out and do weapons [while] we’re not allowed to.’.. ‘We’ll have to develop those weapons, unless Russia comes to us and China comes to us and they all come to us and say let’s really get smart and let’s none of us develop those weapons,’ the U.S. president added.” – Comment: Interestingly, the original title of this article was Trump Declares U.S. Will Withdraw From Cold War-Era Missile Treaty, ignoring the Russian reactions to dropping the treaty. Using the headline phrase “Cold War-Era” is implying that it’s somekind of quaint relic of a bygone era. It has been widely reported that John Bolton has been pushing Trump to withdraw from the treaty. It’s speculated, based on belicose statements made by him, that Bolton is interested in clearing the way for a potential nuclear first strike against both Russian and China, who are being ginned up as both critical threats to U.S. security and as general enemies of human progress toward a uni-polar world. Which, of course, begs the question of just how decisions would be made, and by whom, in such a “World of Peace.”

“Putin’s Puppet” Advances Nuclear Missile Escalations Against Putin – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/10/21/putins-puppet-advances-nuclear-missile-escalations-against-putin/ – ” ‘This is why John Bolton shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near US foreign policy,’ tweeted Senator Rand Paul in response to early forecasts of the official announcement. ‘This would undo decades of bipartisan arms control dating from Reagan. We shouldn’t do it. We should seek to fix any problems with this treaty and move forward.’.. …They didn’t shut the fuck up when this administration helped expand NATO with the addition of Montenegro, at the assigning of Russia hawk Kurt Volker as special representative to Ukraine, at the shutting down of a Russian consulate in San Francisco and throwing out more Russian diplomats in August of last year, when Trump threw out dozens of diplomats in response to shaky claims about the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, or when he implemented aggressive sanctions on Russian oligarchs. Why would they shut the fuck up now?”

From the Wake-Up-And-Smell-The-Apocalypse Desk: Trump ‘Confirms’ He’s Pulling US Out Of Nuclear Deal With Russiaby RT – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50479.htm – ” ‘We are going to terminate the agreement and then we are going to develop the weapons’ unless Russia and China agree to a new deal, Trump said on Saturday… Russia has repeatedly said it will keep strictly observing the INF treaty as long as the US does. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in October 2017 that any withdrawal from Washington would see an “immediate and mirror-like” response from Moscow.”

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s interview with RT France, Paris Match and Le Figarohttp://www.mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/3377331?p_p_id=101_INSTANCE_cKNonkJE02Bw&_101_INSTANCE_cKNonkJE02Bw_languageId=en_GBThis looks like the transcript of this whole very good interview. Cynthia and I watched the entire interview on YouTube up to the point where the closed caption translation ended a little over 1/3 of the way through. I guess the staff at Google got tired, or maybe Lavrov was saying too much that contradicts the Atlanticist narrative.

Syria: One Year Since the Battle for Raqqa and the US and UK Refuse to Accept Responsibility for Civilian Deaths – by Dr. Leon Tressell – https://www.globalresearch.ca/syria-one-year-since-the-battle-for-raqqa-and-the-us-and-uk-refuse-to-accept-responsibility-for-civilian-deaths/5657258 – “On 10 September the US Department of Defence sent its ‘final response’ to Amnesty International stating that the US refuses to accept any liability for civilian deaths caused by its air/artillery strikes and that it would not compensate families of the ceased or survivors. Nor would the US be prepared to investigate the massive loss of civilian life that was caused by its massive and indiscriminate bombing of the city… The UK whose air force claims that it struck 216 ISIS targets in Raqqa has also issued the same blithe statements denying any culpability for the deaths of civilians. On 15 October Amnesty International noted that the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD)* is still, “repeating ‘incredible’ claim its own Raqqa air strikes killed zero civilians.”

Russian Specialists Are Converting S-300PM Systems Delivered To Syria Into S-300PMU-2 Favorit Versionhttps://southfront.org/russian-specialists-are-converting-s-300pm-systems-delivered-to-syria-into-s-300pmu-2-favorit/ – “The S-300PM version uses domestic Russian codes and letter frequencies, which can’t be shared with any other country. However, the S-300PMU-2 Favorit is the export version, which will allow Syria to use its own codes and letter frequencies and integrate the systems into its air defense network.” – Comment: I wonder if this has anything to do with the U.S./Israeli mission to the Ukraine to study the older S-300 systems Russian gave to them before the Maidan coup?

Militants Once Again Violate Deconflication Agreement Shelling Aleppo Cityhttps://southfront.org/militants-once-again-violate-deconflication-agreement-shelling-aleppo-city/ – “On October 18, militants violated shelled the city of Aleppo killing at least one civilian and causing material damage, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA). No group has claimed responsibility for the attack so far… A local source told SouthFront that over 40 rockets and mortar rounds hit the districts of al-Shahba, al-Zahra, al-Nile, Mugambo, al-Sabil and Halab al-Jadidah in the northern and western parts of Aleppo. According to the source, the shelling lasted for longer than usual.”

US To Impose New Sanctions On Russia Every 1-2 Months: Kurt Volkerhttps://southfront.org/us-to-impose-new-sanctions-on-russia-every-1-2-months-kurt-volker/ – “Volker stated that Washington has ‘tried to increase the pressure we are putting on Russia in order to get them [Russian leadership] to negotiate toward a solution.’.. The appraoch of the Trump administration includes keeping sanctions in place and increasing those sanctions periodically over time…. ‘The European Union has shown great resilience in terms of their [sanctions against Russia] of preservation,’ Volker said… Separatelty, he emphasized that the weapons supplies to Ukraine are also a part of this strategy because Ukraine has the “right of self defense”.”

Putin Highlights Need For Collective Restoration Of Syria’s Economyhttps://southfront.org/putin-highlights-need-for-collective-restoration-of-syrias-economy/ – “ ‘An arrangement was made to continue cooperation for the purpose of making the Syrian political process more active,’ the Russian leader said. ‘The task now is that the constitutional committee in Geneva should be formed and start working,’ Putin said. ‘At the same time, it is important to undertake collective efforts for recovery of the Syrian economy in order to create comfortable conditions for the purpose of refugees’ return,’ he added.”

U.S. Planning To Impose Sanctions On Iranian, Russian Companies Involved In Reconstruction Of Syriahttps://southfront.org/u-s-planning-to-impose-sanctions-on-iranian-russian-companies-involved-in-reconstruction-of-syria/ – “The Trump administration is developing a new strategy to deal with the growing Iranian and Russian influence in Syria, NBC News reportd on October 16 citing defense officials. According to the report, the new plan will include a further increase of political, economic and diplomatic efforts to force Iran out of Syria and to punish Russia for its support to the Assad government… ‘It would withhold reconstruction aid from areas where Iranian and Russian forces are present, according to three people familiar with the plan. The U.S. would also impose sanctions on Russian and Iranian companies working on reconstruction in Syria,’ NBC News said.” (emphasis added)

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Was Mentored Every Two Months By Trilateral Commissioner Henry Kissinger – by Patrick Wood – https://www.technocracy.news/un-ambassador-nikki-haley-mentored-every-two-months-by-trilateral-commissioner-henry-kissinger/ – “According to Harper’s Magazine, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley recently delivered a speech to the elite and secretive Council for National Policy (CNP). On October 4, Haley had previously resigned her UN assignment as of the end of 2018… ‘While learning on the job at the UN, Haley said, she sought out Henry Kissinger as her personal foreign policy mentor, meeting with him every two months to absorb his lessons. During a tense diplomatic standoff with North Korea, she appeared to have embraced a version of Kissinger and Nixon’s notorious “madman theory.” ‘ [from Harper’s – emphasis added]

Mueller assembles team of cooperators in Russian probe – by Morgan Chalfant – https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/411938-mueller-assembles-team-of-cooperators-in-russian-probe – “Special counsel Robert Mueller has assembled a list of figures cooperating with his Russia investigation that could provide him with substantial insight into the workings of the Trump campaign… Mueller’s ability to turn associates of President Trump into cooperators has been a key facet of his investigation, lending strength to a probe that has pressed on for nearly a year and a half amid withering public scrutiny… ‘If they have struck a deal where they’re going to cooperate, then that’s a pretty good indication that special counsel’s office believes they have something worth cooperating over,’ said Jack Sharman, a former special counsel to Congress for the Whitewater investigation… Bloomberg, citing anonymous officials, reported Wednesday that Mueller is expected to issue findings on his inquiries into collusion and obstruction of justice after the elections, under pressure from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to complete the probe as quickly as possible.” (emphases added)Comment: It seems that “cooperators” are people facing extortion from a powerful corrupt organization. Saying that Mueller’s “findings” will be released after the midterm electons strikes me as a kind of silent dog-whistle to steel the determination of the Trump Opposers to produce election results to undermine the administration.

American Mercenaries Were Hired To Assassinate Politicians In The Middle East – “There was a targeted assassination program in Yemen. I was running it. We did it.” – by Aram Roston – https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/aramroston/mercenaries-assassination-us-yemen-uae-spear-golan-dahlan

David Duke Meets Jared Taylor and Michael Hart – by Jonas E. Alexis – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/10/12/david-duke-meets-jared-taylor-and-michael-hart/ – “Taylor’s worldview here obviously puts him in direct conflict with people like David Duke and Kevin MacDonald, who write prolifically that Jewish ideological and subversive movements have weakened much of the political infrastructure in America and elsewhere. In Fact, MacDonald has an entire section in his widely read book The Culture of Critique entitled, “The Fall of the Anglo-Saxons.” That particular section indicates that whenever “the new avant-garde ‘ethnic” community” perpetuates its agenda, then the WASP ruling class suffers greatly. MacDonald writes: ‘This was not an imaginary or quasi-ethnic community but an actual community that had as its background a cohesive group of intellectuals dominated by people who were not only Jewish ethnically but also identified as Jews and were motivated at the psychological level by typically Jewish fear and loathing of Anglo-America as the culture of an outgroup. And, at the end of the day, this assault on Anglo-America furthered Jewish goals in displacing Anglo-Saxons as a dominant elite.’ ” – Comment: This is a long, courageous, and extremely well-composed article by Alexis. He is delving into complex and important subject matter. Highly recommended.

Did Saudis, CIA Fear Khashoggi 9/11 Bombshell? – by Finian Cunningham – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50435.htm – “Jamal Khashoggi had long served as a trusted media advisor to Prince Turki, before the latter resigned from public office in 2007. Following 9/11, Turki was the Saudi ambassador to both the US and Britain… A tentative idea here is that Khashoggi, in his close dealings with Prince Turki over the years, may have gleaned highly sensitive inside information on what actually happened on 9/11. Were the Arab hijackers mere patsies used by the American CIA to facilitate an event which has since been used by American military planners to launch a global “war on terror” as a cover for illegal wars overseas? There is a huge body of evidence that the 9/11 attacks were indeed a “false flag” event orchestrated by the US deep state as a pretext for its imperialist rampages. – Comment: Cunningham speaks specifically about the involvement of “Deepstate” power involvement in 9/11, but doesn’t mention a peep about the Israelis.

Is Cultural Marxism America’s New Mainline Ideology? – by Anthony Mueller – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-11/cultural-marxism-americas-new-mainline-ideology – “This theory says that the driving force behind the socialist revolution is not the proletariat – but the intellectuals. While Marxism has largely disappeared from the workers’ movement, Marxist theory flourishes today in cultural institutions, in the academic world, and in the mass media. This “cultural Marxism” goes back to Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) and theFrankfurt School. The theorists of Marxism recognized that the proletariat would not play the expected historical role as a “revolutionary subject.” Therefore, for the revolution to happen, the movement must depend on the cultural leaders to destroy the existing, mainly Christian, culture and morality and then drive the disoriented masses to Communism as their new creed. The goal of this movement is to establish a world government in which the Marxist intellectuals have the final say. In this sense, the cultural Marxists are the continuation of what started with the Russian revolution.” – Comment: Very interesting to see this popping up on the fringe of lamestream discourse.

You’re Telling Me Technology Like This Exists But We’re Still Using Oil, Gas & Coal? – by Arjun Walia – https://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/05/07/youre-telling-me-technology-like-this-exists-but-were-still-using-oil-gas-coal/ – “A paper published in the Journal Foundations of Physics Letters, in August 2001, Volume 14, Issue 4 shows that the principles of general relativity can be used to explain the principles of the motionless electromagnetic generator (MEG) (source). This device takes electromagnetic energy from curved space-time and outputs about twenty times more energy than inputted. The fact that these machines exist is astonishing, it’s even more astonishing that these machines are not implemented worldwide right now. It would completely wipe out the entire energy industry, nobody would have to pay bills and it would eradicate poverty at an exponential rate. This paper demonstrates that electromagnetic energy can be extracted from the vacuum and used to power working devices such as the MEG used in the experiment. The paper goes on to emphasize how these devices are reproducible and repeatable.”

Gore told PBS in an interview aired today that ‘the earmarks of this latest storm… are worth paying attention to.’ ” – Comment: Now why would the jetstream be getting “loopier?” Also, is it loopier than Al Gore?

Doctors are refusing patients unless they sign up for a full vaccine schedule – all to lock-in profits! – by Vicki Batts – https://www.newstarget.com/2016-08-05-doctors-are-refusing-patients-unless-they-signup-for-a-full-vaccine-schedule-all-to-lock-in-profits.html – “So, despite a lack of any evidence that this vaccine is of any use to young children, doctors are not only promoting that it be given to little girls, but are trying to force it on them! Really? The Gardasil vaccine was intended to protect sexually active adult women – not 9- or 10-year-old girls!.. What could be the motivation behind this sick practice of forcing a needless vaccine on young children? Money. In some networks, providers may receive more money if they vaccinate more people. For example, The Liberty Beacon reports that Blue Care Network pays doctors $225 per vaccination. The doctors receive $125 bonus if the service is billed as a “Well-Child Visit,” a CDC-sponsored vaccine tracking service.” (emphasis added)

FDA Approves Dangerous Gardasil Vaccine for Adults in the U.S. – by Brian Shilhavy – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/fda-approves-dangerous-gardasil-vaccine-for-adults-in-the-u-s/ – “Granting approval to a vaccine after a “Priority Review” by the FDA in only 3 months is a “fast nod” according to FiercePharma, the market trade publication of the pharmaceutical industry… Merck did not even have to supply any new trials or data to get the vaccine approved for adults, in spite of the fact that the FDA denied their request for 10 years on the older Gardasil vaccine. According to FiercePharma: ‘Because Gardasil 9 and sister shot Gardasil are manufactured similarly, the FDA based the Gardasil 9 decision on results from a study of its predecessor.’.. The study the FDA relied upon to approve Gardasil 9 for adults was considered insufficient for 10 years as the FDA denied Merck approval to market the vaccine to adults…”

The present article is consequently being submitted to all US-and-allied news-media for publication, broadcast, and public discussion, so as to enable the international ‘court’ of public opinion to function, on this matter (since the US Government blocks the ICC from having jurisdiction over it).

Accordingly, the transcription of immune/detoxifying genes in the guts of larvae exposed to GLY was variably regulated among the colonies studied… Consequently, under laboratory conditions, the response of honey bees to GLY indicates that it is a stressor that affects larval development depending on individual and colony susceptibility.”

S-300 vs F-35: Stealth and Invincible Are Not Synonymous – It would take an actual shootout to determine the winner, but the general impression is the F-35s isn’t yet ready for combat, much less to take on capable anti-air missiles – by Andrei Akulov – https://russia-insider.com/en/s-300-vs-f-35-stealth-and-invincible-are-not-synonymous/ri25027

5G tech fast-tracked to get pushed into our homes by next year – by Vicki Batts – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-09-27-5g-tech-fast-tracked-into-our-homes-by-next-year.html – “For many, the promise of faster internet sounds great, but the real-life implications of 5G extend far beyond internet speeds and data transfer rates. As the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) explains, 5G will feature a host of brand-new technologies, designed to make the internet function at a nearly-seamless speed. As IEEE notes, users of 4G currently experience about a 70 millisecond delay when receiving data. 5G promises to reduce that delay down to just one millisecond… This sounds great, but the cost of such speed will be great: The new technology needed for 5G will rely on millimeter waves, small cells, massive MIMO, or other types of potentially damaging technology, like beamforming. These are some of the “industry favorites” so far, and it seems like all of these “parts” may end up being used in the next generation of the internet. But what does that mean for you?”

Worst Job Growth In A Year – Way Below Expectations – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/worst-job-growth-in-a-year-way-below-expectations.html – “In particular, it is absolutely stunning what is happening to homebuilder stocks. They have now fallen for 13 days in a row, and that could be another very clear indication that a housing crash is coming… None of the problems that caused the crash of 2008 have been fixed. It absolutely amazes me that some people think that you can “fix” our economy by tinkering with the tax code a little bit and getting rid of a few regulations. A handful of marginal changes is not going to alter our long-term outlook one bit… The truth is that our economic system requires extensive emergency surgery. We need to abolish the Federal Reserve, abolish the IRS, abolish the income tax and start using currency that is not created by debt. And that would just be for starters. Our current economic system is fundamentally flawed, and in the long-term it is inevitably going to fail. The best that anyone can do in the short-term is to keep inflating the bubbles so that things will hold together long enough until they can become somebody else’s problem… Right now, the only way that we can achieve economic growth is by growing debt at a far faster pace than the overall economy is expanding. That is a recipe for a long-term disaster, and everyone knows that we are in the process of committing national suicide, but nobody is really doing anything to stop it.”

SWEIDA: A Bloody Massacre Barely Registered by Western Media as ISIS Slaughter Innocent Civilians in their Sleep – by Vanessa Beeley – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/10/06/sweida-a-bloody-massacre-barely-registered-by-western-media-as-isis-slaughter-innocent-civilians-in-their-sleep/ – ” ‘We defended our land and our homes because this land is mixed with the blood of generations of our people. We will not accept that people without morals or humanity can touch this land. We stay, we will stand and defend this land until we die. Our youth killed these terrorists even though they had very old weapons, very simple weapons. The ISIS fighters had modern, expensive equipment but we still killed them.’ said Khaled… Khaled told us that the clashes continued from 4 am until 1pm. Between 4 and 5 am the ISIS fighters took advantage of the sleeping civilians and murdered many of them in their sleep before they had time to warn their neighbours.” – Comment: Other than the kidnapping of more that 20 of the villagers in the Sweida area (and the murder of one of them, a woman, on camera 2 days ago) none of this has been covered by the Deep State Press.

How The U.S. Runs Public Relations Campaigns – Trump Style – Against Russia And China – by Moon of Alabama – http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/10/how-the-us-runs-public-relations-campaigns-trump-style-against-russia-and-china.html#more – “If the European NATO allies, under pressure of the propaganda onslaught, agree to that, the obvious results will be more U.S. control over its allies’ networks and citizens as well as more threats against Russia: ‘NATO’s chief vowed on Thursday to strengthen the alliance’s defenses against attacks on computer networks that Britain said are directed by Russian military intelligence, also calling on Russia to stop its “reckless” behavior… The allegations against Russia over nefarious spying operations and sockpuppet campaigns are highly hypocritical. The immense scale of U.S. and British spying revealed by Edward Snowden and through the Wikileaks Vault 7 leak of CIA hacking tools is well known. The Pentagon runs large social media manipulation campaigns. The British GHCQ hacked Belgium’s largest telco network to spy on the data of the many international organizations in Brussels… International organizations like the OPCW have long been the target of U.S. spies and operations. The U.S. National Security Service (NSA) regularly hacked the OPCW since at least September 2000: ‘According to last week’s Shadow Brokers leak, the NSA compromised a DNS server of the Hague-based Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in September 2000, two years after the Iraq Liberation Act and Operation Desert Fox, but before the Bush election.’ ”

Why ISIS Propaganda Is Still Successful Despite Group’s Defeat In Syria And Iraq – by J.Hawk – https://southfront.org/why-isis-propaganda-is-still-successful-despite-groups-defeat-in-syria-and-iraq/ – “The phenomenon of the ISIS also is a challenge for most of the scholars of “post-materialism” and “post-modernism” who sprang up like mushrooms after the end of the Cold War. The general belief in the West in the 1990s was that, now that the “end of history” was upon us, it meant the end to nationalism, tribalism, identity politics of any kind. Because if identity is constructed, now that world peace was upon us, all of the group identities constructed in the course of earlier centuries and even millennia could be deconstructed and the global society built on the basis of 7 billion atomized specimens of “homo economicus”, rational actors pursuing self-interest framed solely in the terms personal material gain. What the constructivist crowd missed is that the human psyche has a hard-wired need to construct group identities. In the absence of state-sponsored nation-building, non-state actors will naturally rise to fill that void. While this has been a perennial problem for weak and failing states, in the post-Cold War era even the First World countries encountered the problem of identity which they thought they had well in hand.”

EPA Aims to Weaken Radiation Regulations As FCC Gives Telecoms $2B To Install 5G Everywhere – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/epa-weakens-radiation-regulations-fcc-gives-2b-telecoms-5g.html – ” ‘I salute Commissioner Carr for his leadership in developing this order,’ Pai said today of his fellow commissioner Brendan Carr while discussing a plan to set a federal limit on what local and state governments are allowed to charge telecoms companies to add new 5G mobile cell sites on their property… ‘He worked very closely with many state and local officials to understand their needs and to study the policies that have worked at the state and local level. It should therefore come as no surprise that this order has won significant support from mayor, local officials and state legislatures.’.. There’s only one problem with this statement: it is wholly, provabl(y) incorrect… The Trump administration is quietly moving to weaken U.S. radiation regulations, turning to scientific outliers who argue that a bit of radiation damage is actually good for you — like a little bit of sunlight.” (emphasis added)Comment: You can’t make this stuff up…

Court Rules Innocent Pregnant Mother’s Rights NOT Violated When Police Dog Mauled Her – by Rachel Blevins – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/court-rules-innocent-pregnant-mothers-rights-not-violated-when-police-dog-mauled-her.html – “Mancini had to have multiple surgeries, and she said she was left with extensive scar tissue, and she now battles fiery aches and pains on a regular basis. The attack caused her to go into premature labor, and while doctors were able to prevent her baby from being born then, she went into labor again after she had to undergo emergency surgery to remove a golf ball-sized infection in her leg… She said that because of the pharmaceutical painkillers she was prescribed, her son was born with a narcotics addiction, and he spent several weeks in neonatal intensive care as a result… Given the fact that Mancini was an innocent bystander when she was viciously attacked by the police dog, she said the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department promised it would cover all of her medical expenses. However, she filed a lawsuit against the department in August 2016, claiming she had received nothing and her medical expenses had surpassed $100,000.”

How Globalists Plan To Use Technology And Poverty To Enslave The Masses – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/how-globalists-plan-to-use-technology-and-poverty-to-enslave-the-masses.html – “The rise of a tyrannical system takes extensive time, planning and staging. Human beings do not simply jump right into the arms of a dystopian nightmare regime impulsively at a moment’s notice. We have been told by popular media that this is how it works; that during hard economic or social conditions men with charismatic personalities and evil intentions suddenly rise to the surface and take power by promising a better world in exchange for public fealty. But where did those economic and social crises come from to begin with? Were they a natural consequence of the era, or were they deliberately engineered?.. The reality is that people must be psychologically conditioned to trade freedom for the illusion of safety. Sometimes this takes generations. Every attempt at a totalitarian framework inevitably elicits a rebellion. Therefore, the most successful tyranny would be one that the public DEMANDS. They have to think it is their idea, otherwise they will eventually fight it.”

Europe’s Forgotten War In Ukraine Rumbles On – by Dr.Leon Tressell – https://southfront.org/europes-forgotten-war-in-ukraine-rumbles-on/ – “…the civil war in Ukraine that is being facilitated by Western imperialism ties in with the massive expansion of NATO up to Russia’s borders and the never ending rounds of sanctions imposed by Washington and the EU upon Putin’s supporters and the Russian economy. There is clearly a more long term objective at play here which is regime change in Russia… This policy of keeping Russia weak has been clearly outlined in the work of Zbigniew Brezezinski who has been the geo-political brain of several presidents including Obama. In his seminal work The Grand Chess Board: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives Brezezinski states that the overriding objective of American foreign policy should be to prevent the emergence of a rival to its dominance over the Eurasian landmass.”

Israel To Use Its F-35I Jets To Counter Syrian S-300 Systems: Mediahttps://southfront.org/israel-to-use-its-f-35i-jets-to-counter-syrian-s-300-systems-media/ – ” ‘This is the most expensive weapon in the world, and it’s the most advanced airplane in the world. Israel paid 125 million for each plane, and the Defense Ministry purchased 50 of the Model A planes… Our planes are called the F-35I. Eight of the planes have already landed in Israel and 33 are expected to arrive by 2021.’.. Whether or not the F-35’s ‘stealth’ capabilities will be effective in real battle conditions is yet to be seen as, in the past, the aircraft, on top of hundreds of bugs and glitches in its systems, was experiencing radar problems, as reported by RT… In May 2018, Israel claimed that it had become the first country to carry out airstrikes with F-35 fighter jets… ‘We are flying the F-35 over the entire Middle East and that has become part of our operational capability,’ Israeli Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin said then. ‘We were the first in the world to attack with the F-35. The Israeli Air Force has twice carried out strikes with the F-35, on two different fronts.’ ”

Below: Must Watch – Understanding our EMF Crisis – The Still Unsolved Mystery of the Eugene Signal (33 min) – This comes from the researchers Aaron and Melissa Dykes of TruthStream Media – This video vastly transcends the relatively sidelined issue of the mysterious Eugene Signal, which briefly flared up in the U.S. public awareness back in the late 1970’s. It covers in some detail the institutional suppression of the potentially devastating harms, and emotional and behavioral manipulations caused by EMF radiation below the Western militaries’ fabled 10 microwatts per square centimeter maximum threshold for human exposure to these frequencies. I think it’s a truly masterful public documentation of these phenomena and the mindsets driving the current moment in the “advancement” of society through technology. –bruce.reid

“Digital Strip Searches” Increasing at Borders; Refusal Could Lead to $5K Fine – by Nicholas West – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/10/digital-strip-searches-increasing-at-borders-refusal-could-lead-to-5k-fine.html – “Aside from the invasion of personal privacy, access to banking is an interesting point to introduce. In fact, this could greatly impact the ability to travel with cryptocurrency between borders. The rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies stored on digital devices as “wallets” as a safe means of traveling with large funds across borders makes this ruling particularly “Draconian,” according to Bitcoin.com: ‘While preventing terrorists and other dangerous criminals from gaining entry is a justifiable reason for profiling and potentially searching new arrivals, it’s also used as a dragnet exercise. From cypherpunks to activists, anyone deemed vaguely anti-government – despite presenting no physical threat to the state – are prone to being hauled up for interrogation. Laptop inspected. Cell phone scrutinized. And now, password demanded.’ ”

My sinister battle with Brett Kavanaugh over the truth – by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard – (saved from behind the UK Telegraph’s paywall at:) https://www.yahoo.com/news/sinister-battle-brett-kavanaugh-over-202425923.html – “Mr Kavanaugh went on to write the Starr Report on the Foster death. But Mr Knowlton got the last word, literally. He filed a 511-page report at the US Federal Court with evidence alleging a pattern of skullduggery, and asked that it be attached to the Starr Report… The three top judges did not agree but they ordered that a shorter 20-page version be attached at the end, despite vehement protest from the Starr office. This had never happened before in the history of the office of the independent council… This summary asserts that the FBI had “concealed the true facts”, that there had been witness tampering, and that the report had wilfully ignored facts that refuted its own conclusions. There it sits in perpetuity, a strange rebuke for Mr Kavanaugh by his own fellow judges on the federal bench.” Comment: Of course, the Forces of Light will make this all clear to the American public shortly.

US Military in Syria Ready for Long-Endurance Mission – by Arkady Savitsky – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/10/02/us-military-in-syria-ready-for-long-endurance-mission.html – “Evidently, Washington has made a decision to stay in Syria for a long time. It needs an alliance to support it militarily and diplomatically. Using the Iran threat” bogey to lead the MESA will restore the US image as an indispensable nation in the Middle East after unimpressive operations in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan as well as other countries America has intervened into on a much smaller scale in recent years. The Astana process led by Russia, Turkey and Iran opens promising prospects for a peaceful solution of Syria’s conflict. Another scenario is Syria turning into a battlefield between US-led and Israel-supported MESA and Iran. It will certainly spill over to encompass Iraq, Yemen and Lebanon. The bigger is the fire of war the more “indispensable” will the US become, reaping all the benefits of being the leader of the anti-Iran coalition.” – Caveat: Unless, of course, the Forces of Light root out worldwide corruption in the foreseeable future.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham Reorganizes Its Forces Into Three Armieshttps://southfront.org/hayat-tahrir-al-sham-reorganizes-its-forces-into-three-armies/ – “Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the formation of these armies is one of several steps HTS is taking before announcing its stand on the Russian-Turkish deconfliction agreement on the government of Idlib… Syrian opposition sources revealed that an internal disagreement has emerged between the “moderate” and “radical” wings within HTS leadership over accepting or rejecting the deconfliction agreement… The fact that the radical wing within the HTS is against the agreement and these new military measures suggest that the radicals are preparing for war, not for peace.” – Comment: This means that the “Moderate Terrorists” are positioning themselves to reject the joint Turkish-Russian “deconfliction zone” initiative designed to prevent the Syrian Arab Army’s invasion of Idlib, with Russian air support.

That sign telling you how fast you’re driving may be spying on you – by Justin Rohrlich – https://qz.com/1400791/that-road-sign-telling-you-how-fast-youre-driving-may-be-part-of-a-us-government-surveillance-network/ – “According to recently released US federal contracting data, the Drug Enforcement Administration will be expanding the footprint of its nationwide surveillance network with the purchase of “multiple” trailer-mounted speed displays “to be retrofitted as mobile LPR [License Plate Reader] platforms.” The DEA is buying them from RU2 Systems Inc., a private Mesa, Arizona company. How much it’s spending on the signs has been redacted… Two other, apparently related contracts, show that the DEA has hired a small machine shop in California, and another in Virginia, to conceal the readers within the signs.” – Comment: Hopefully the Forces of Light will be reversing the Surveillance State programs toute suite. Otherwise, I have some black spray paint…

Muslim country, Catholic country, Jewish country celebrate Talmud at UN. No joke – by Ben Sales – https://www.timesofisrael.com/muslim-country-catholic-country-jewish-country-celebrate-talmud-at-un-no-joke/ – “Five centuries ago, the Talmud was burned in a public square in Rome. Eighty years ago, the Italian government allied itself with the Nazis. Today, that government is spending millions of dollars to make sure Italians can read the Talmud in their native language… In another sign of how times have changed, the three diplomatic representatives at the event, as well as the project’s chief executive, were all women. Nearly all of the people quoted in the Talmud are men… Albania, where Italian is widely spoken, enjoys good ties with Israel and takes pride in its record in rescuing Jews during the Holocaust… ‘Projects like the Babylonian Talmud Translation open a new lane in intercultural and interfaith dialogue, bringing hope and understanding among people, the right tools to counter prejudice, stereotypical thinking and discrimination,’ said Albania’s United Nations ambassador, Besiana Kadare, at the event. ‘By doing so, we think that we strengthen our social traditions, peace, stability — and we also counter violent extremist tendencies.’ – Comment: I wonder how accurate this translation of the “Babylonian Talmud” will be if it is to “counter prejudice, stereotypical thinking and discrimination” and “strengthen…social traditions (of) peace (and) stability” ? Somebody ponied up many millions of dollars to bring this project to fruition…

From the I’m-Sure-This-Horse-MUST-Be-Dead Desk: Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford ran mass “hypnotic inductions” of psychiatric subjects as part of mind control research funded by foundation linked to “computational psychosomatics” neuro-hijacking (UPDATE 1) – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-01-kavanaugh-accuser-christine-blasey-ford-ran-mass-hypnotic-inductions-of-psychiatric-subjects.html – “Internet sleuths are turning up an extraordinary collection of evidence that increasingly points to Christine Blasey Ford being involved in mind control programs at Stanford, which some claim are run by the CIA. We have confirmed that Stanford University, where Ford works, runs a “CIA undergraduate internship program” which is described in full at this Stanford.edu recruitment page for the CIA. The Stanford recruitment page for the CIA explains, ‘You will be given the opportunity to work with highly-skilled professionals and see first-hand the role the CIA plays in supporting US officials who make our country’s foreign policy.’..We can also now confirm that Ford is listed as a co-author of a study that carried out mass hypnosis and mind control on psychiatric subjects under the banner of “psychoeducation,” covered in more detail below.”

Iran Looks on as Israeli Arrogance Forces Putin’s Hand – by Elijah J. Magnier – https://ahtribune.com/world/north-africa-south-west-asia/syria-crisis/2499-iran-israeli-arrogance-putin.html – “Israel’s politico-military leadership was not embarrassed to inform Russia only one minute before its attack on the Latakia warehouse manufacturing spare parts of the Syrian M-600, the equivalent of the solid fuel precision missile Fateh-110. Moreover, Tel Aviv misinformed Russia’s Hmaymeem coordination centre, claiming that the Israeli attack would come from the east. The Russian command instructed the IL-20 to move west and land at the airport to avoid being caught in a cross fire. But the Israeli F-16 jets arrived from the west and not the east, leading to the downing of the IL-20 and the death of the 15 Russian servicemen… Russia’s efforts at a balanced position have met with Israeli abuse. President Assad told his Russian homologue – during their last conversation – that Israel, under the pretext of hitting Hezbollah arms convoys, is destroying the Syrian army’s infrastructure, preventing it from recovering. Prime Minister Netanyahu has been undermining Putin in punishment for the neutral stand the Russian president has been trying to adopt.”

For the Week of 9/24/18:

Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump and Discussed 25th Amendment – by Adam Goldman and Michael S. Schmidt – https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/21/us/politics/rod-rosenstein-wear-wire-25th-amendment.html – “Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes in interviews over the past several months, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments… None of Mr. Rosenstein’s proposals apparently came to fruition. It is not clear how determined he was about seeing them through, though he did tell Mr. McCabe that he might be able to persuade Attorney General Jeff Sessions and John F. Kelly, then the secretary of homeland security and now the White House chief of staff, to mount an effort to invoke the 25th Amendment.” – Comment: I hope everyone interested in “Russiagate” and the Q material has had a chance to read this important article from the NYT. Contains many pertinent links.

The Stock Market Just Crashed In Italy, And Argentina Has Panic-Raised Interest Rates To 65 Percent – by Michael Snyder – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/the-stock-market-just-crashed-in-italy-and-argentina-has-panic-raised-interest-rates-to-65-percent.html – “While the mainstream media in the United States continues to be obsessed with all things Kavanaugh, an international financial crisis threatens to spiral out of control. Stock prices are falling and currencies are collapsing all over the planet, but because the U.S. has been largely unaffected so far the mainstream media is mostly choosing to ignore what is happening. But the truth is that this is serious… The financial crisis in Italy threatens to literally tear the EU apart, and South America has become an economic horror show. The situation in Brazil continues to get worse, the central bank of Argentina has just raised interest rates to 65 percent, and in Venezuela starving people are literally eating cats and dogs in order to survive. How bad do things have to get before people will start paying attention?.. On Friday, Italian stocks had their worst day in more than two years, and it was the big financial stocks that were on the cutting edge of the carnage…”

Reddit Now “Quarantining” Users Who Question 9/11—Direct Users to Gov’t Site Instead – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/reddit-now-quarantining-users-who-question-9-11-direct-users-to-govt-site-instead.html – “It is an indisputable fact that the United States government lies repeatedly to the citizens of the United States. They have been caught countless times deceiving the American people and Reddit wants you to get your information solely from them in regards to one of the most controversial and deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil. What’s more, the government themselves has admitted that their path to investigate 9/11 was tainted with corruption and cover-ups and the government was already exposed lying about it.”

Central Banks Have Gone Rogue, Putting Us All at Risk – by Ellen Brown – https://www.shiftfrequency.com/central-banks-have-gone-rogue-putting-us-all-at-risk/ – “[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.” – Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope

Weaponizing Space Time – by Joseph P Farrell – https://www.shiftfrequency.com/weaponizing-space-time/ – “The Suter ELINT systems we have today, created by the Air Force’s “Big Safari” program, have advanced much further since 2007. They can secretly invade and control an enemy’s air defense radar systems, move their sensors and create a blind spot, and show normal air traffic screens while our fighters, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or bombers are approaching their targets undetected. We can show them recordings of normal air traffic patterns from last week. We can also show them screens with unidentified aircraft coming at them when none exist in their airspace. That gives our intelligence people the opportunity to track and record their response to a perceived (but false) attack, discover their command and control structure, DF (direction find) their SAM (surface-to-air missile) locations when they come up, intercept their communications traffic, and RFP (radio fingerprint) their transmitters (each one identified with a specific military unit). Once we have that information, we can further manipulate space and time, from our enemy’s perspective, and shroud them in a debilitating “fog of war.” (Emphasis added by Farrell)”

Congressman Exposes Gov’t Using “Human Trafficking” Act to Warrantlessly Spy on Innocent Citizens – by Rachel Blevins – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/congressman-exposes-govt-using-human-trafficking-act-to-warrantlessly-spy-on-innocent-citizens.html – “Amash said he believes H.R. 6729 is ‘a disguised effort to expand the Patriot Act. GOP leaders put ‘Fight Human Trafficking’ in the title to conceal the bill’s true purpose: to give the government more power to unconstitutionally spy on law-abiding Americans without a warrant.‘.. In the past, Rep. Amash has been a vocal opponent of legislation that threatens the Fourth Amendment by letting the FBI spy on innocent Americans without a warrant and letting government agencies raid private property without a warrant… While there are already cases where law enforcement agencies have access to the financial records of suspects who are facing certain charges, the idea that police officers—especially those who have gotten away with robbery, extortion, lying, and even murder—would have access to the financial records of innocent citizens before they have ever been charged with a crime is a dangerous concept.”

Turkey Now Controls Syria’s Jihadists – by Eric Zuesse – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/25/turkey-now-controls-syria-jihadists.html – “However, after the success of the US-Saudi war against Russia in 1979 by means of spreading Wahhabist and other fundamentalist-Sunni mosques and especially funding and creating mujahideen, Taliban, Al Qaeda, and ultimately ISIS fighters, all against Russia and against Russia’s ally Iran — that is, against the two countries which the Sauds and America’s aristocracy are the most determined to conquer — the Islamist Tayyip Erdogan in 2003 rose finally to power in Turkey, so as to support that US-Saudi cause, against Russia, and against Iran.”

‘Major mistake’: Israel, US warn Russia against giving S-300 missiles to Syriahttps://www.timesofisrael.com/us-warns-russia-deploying-s-300-in-syria-would-be-major-mistake/ – “Channel 10 News quoted a senior American official who noted that the system could endanger US Air Force jets operating against Islamic State in Syria… ‘Bringing more anti-aircraft missiles into Syria won’t solve the Syrian army’s unprofessional and indiscriminate firing of missiles and won’t mitigate the danger to aircraft flying in the area,’ the unnamed official said… In ‘his call with Netanyahu, Putin said he disagreed with the Israeli version of events concerning the downing of the Russian plane… ‘The information provided by the Israeli military… runs counter to conclusions of the Russian defense ministry,’ the Kremlin said of (Putin’s) call, adding that the actions of the Israeli pilots had led to the plane being targeted by Syrian air defense systems… ‘This is absurd,’ said Israeli Middle East analyst Ehud Ya’ari on Monday night. ‘The Syrians down a Russian plane and get the prize of an advanced weapons system.’ ” – Note:The Israelis are making repeated accusations that the Syrians used indiscriminate anti-aircraft fire, despite Russian assertions that the Syrian anti-aircraft defenses are integrated with those of the Russian airforce.

They got to save themselves. But who’s going to save those animals? That’s what we did,’ Hedges said. ‘We saved them.’ ”

We are already living under many forms of Obama’s “martial law” deep state control: It’s time for Trump to restore America – by Mike Adams – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-09-24-we-are-already-living-under-many-forms-of-obamas-martial-law-deep-state-control.html – “What most people fail to realize is that we’ve been living under many forms of “martial law” put in place by Obama that are still damaging America and its citizens to this very day. For example: ● The tech giants’ deplatforming of InfoWars, Natural News and other pro-Trump channels is an extremely dangerous form of digital martial law, where citizens who say certain things are not allowed to exist in the online ecosystem. ● The left-wing media, now fully complicit in deep state treason against America, is handed daily marching orders by Obama’s CIA factions that determine what “news” is allowed to be broadcast across America. ● The “media” is not the media. It is the anti-America propaganda arm of Obama’s CIA, which is still in power and still working to destroy this nation. ● Deranged left-wing activists have placed all prominent conservatives under a form of de facto martial law where no prominent conservative can venture out in public without being harassed, threatened or violently attacked by hysterical anti-Trump lunatics. ● The economic sabotage now being committed against InfoWars and other pro-Trump platforms (by PayPal, Citibank and others) is a form of financial martial law, where deep state-driven financial institutions commit selective economic sabotage against targets identified to them by Obama’s CIA. ● Close associates of Trump now routinely find themselves indicted and prosecuted by Robert Mueller under a kind of prosecutorial martial law where only selected political targets are subjected to legal scrutiny while pro-Clinton operatives are granted universal immunity from all crimes (including those crimes committed by Hillary Clinton herself). ● The Obama administration weaponized government agencies against targeted citizens’ groups, deploying the IRS to enforce a selective “taxation martial law” policy of denying tax exempt status against conservative non-profits.”

US Imposes Sanctions on China for Buying Russian Weapons: Waging War on All Fronts – by Alex Gorka – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/24/us-imposes-sanctions-china-buying-russian-weapons-waging-war-all-fronts.html – “The sanctions war is pouring even more fuel on the fire. It raises the prospect of the US sanctioning its friends and allies who purchase Russian military equipment. The penalties imposed on Sept. 20 are a warning shot intended for other states on the list of clients, including India, Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Algeria, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and the Philippines, among other nations that are willing to sign contracts. India, the largest buyer of Russian-made weapons, and Turkey, a US NATO ally, have already been admonished against doing business with Russian arms exporters. Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to visit Saudi Arabia soon. The planned signing of an S-400 deal would deal a major blow to the United States. Washington hopes that now that sanctions have been imposed on Beijing, Riyadh will change its mind.”

The Israeli military went on to blame Syria for the incident once again and vowed to continue its operations against Iranian forces in the war-torn country… ‘The IDF [Israeli Defense Forces] will continue to operate in accordance with the directives of the Israeli Government against Iran’s incessant attempts to establish itself in Syria and to arm the terrorist organization Hezbollah with lethal and accurate weapons,’ the Israeli military statement reads.”

Furthermore, the Russian military will employ the following measures: Russian EW systems will supress communications, radars and satellite navigation of combat aviation involved in any attacks; Syrian Air Defense HQs will be equipped with better automated process-control systems, ‘which are only supplied to the Russian Armed Forces.’ This will lead to a better integration of Syrian and Russian military assets operating in Syria and Syrian Air Defense Forces will have better targeting information.”

This is fully covered, with accompanying documentation from the U.S. Federal Register, in the links and video below. (This author is fully supportive of this effort to save America and arrest the traitors.).. The confirmation of Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court is the key to getting this done in a timely manner, which explains why the deranged Left is going to such outrageous extremes to fabricate false allegations against Kavanaugh and stage coordinated, well-funded protests to try to block the U.S. Senate from confirming him.” – Comment: TRUST TRUMP!

The Syrian Arab Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces have recently carried out a series of strikes on weapons depots, equipment and UAV workshops and key facilities belonging to militants in southern and southwestern Idlib… These as well as deployment of additional SAA units at the contact line between the militant-held and government-held areas are described by pro-militant sources as clear sings of the upcoming SAA operation to defeat Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other al-Qaeda-like factions there.”

Russian response options to the latest Israeli provocation – by The Saker – http://thesaker.is/russian-response-options-to-the-latest-israeli-provocation/ – “Over the past 24 hours the Internet, including this blog, have been flooded with opinion on what everybody and anybody would do if they were in Putin’s boots. Proposals range from declaring an no-fly zone over Syria to, I kid you not, send a couple of Russian SSBNs (subs which carry intercontinental ballistic missiles) off the coast of Israel. Furthermore, since Putin has failed, at least so far, to implement any retaliatory measures, the usual chorus of “Putin is a traitor” has been swamping my poor mods with sanguine expressions of disgust about Putin, Russia and yours truly … I do realize that nothing I say would change the minds of this latter group, but for the rest of us in the real world, a short reality check might be helpful. So, here it is a a short bullet-point format:… Finally, and on a lighter note, did you know that the Russians have, apparently, run out of Novichok gas and that they are now using rat poison to kill daughters of military band leading generals? No?”

Years ago, such questions would have been the stuff of science fiction; now they are the stuff of science fact… Bristol is one place experimenting with these new capabilities, and grappling with the moral and ethical questions that come with them… Gary Davies, who oversees the council’s predictive system, can see the advantages… He argues that it does not mean taking humans out of the decision-making process; rather it means using data to stop humans making mistakes… ‘It’s not saying you will be sexually exploited, or you will go missing,’ says Davies. ‘It’s demonstrating the behavioural characteristics of being exploited or going missing. It’s flagging up that risk and vulnerability.’ ” – Comment: When people are saying things that appear to explain something, but are unclear or ambiguous, it may be a sign that something else is being covered up. “cost-cutting reality”: mind bending.

F*ck sh*t up,” he is shown saying… In a statement at the Project Veritas website, O’Keefe promised more exposés in the coming days: ‘We’ve heard a lot about the Deep State; holdovers from the previous administration resisting change or nameless and faceless bureaucrats slowing things down or leaking secrets in an effort to undermine this administration,” he said. “What is truly striking is their boldness, they are not afraid. They are even boastful about a warped reality, where they won’t get caught and can’t get fired even if they did.’ ”

Selfish Ledger Video Reveals Google’s Scheme to Direct Human Evolution – by Makia Freeman – http://freedom-articles.toolsforfreedom.com/selfish-ledger-google-social-engineering/ – ” Google wants a complete ledger of your life – a complete account using extensive data of all your actions, decisions, preferences, movements and relationships. It then wants to use pattern recognition and other tools with this data to direct your life. At first, this so-called Selfish Ledger will be user-driven, but the implication is that soon thereafter it will be driven by the ledger itself (i.e. AI) programmed with “Google’s values” (whatever they are). The deeper meaning of the Selfish Ledger is shocking: Google freely admits that it is aiming for complete species-wide understanding with the Selfish Ledger, and thus to be able to direct human evolution.”

We received a notification via a hotline less than a minute before the strike, which did not allow the Russian aircraft to be directed to a safe zone.’.. Israel’s Embassy in Moscow has refused to comment on the Russian statement on the IL-20 incident… Meanwhile, Rusisan forces found the crash site of the downed IL-20. It’s located in the sea 27km west of the settlement of Banias, the province of Latakia. 8 vessels are participating in the search and rescue operation.” (emphasis added) – Note: This article includes a map of the incident.

Russian Defense Minister: Israel Bears Full Responsibility For Downing Of IL-20 Off Syrian Coasthttps://southfront.org/russian-defense-minister-israel-bears-full-responsibility-for-downing-of-il-20-off-syrian-coast/ – ” ‘The blame for the downing of the Russian plane and the deaths of its crew members lies squarely on the Israeli side,’ Shoigu said during a convesation with Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman on the phone. ‘The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.’.. On September 4, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) stated that over the last 1.5 years Israel has carried out around 200 airstrikes on Syria using 800 munitions. The scale of the strikes shows Israel’s long-standing intention to remain a powerbroker in the ongoing Syrian conflict. It’s interesting to note that in most of the cases, the IDF strikes led to a further escalation of the war thus making situation more complicated.” (emphasis added)

There Will Be No Military Operation In Idlib: Russian Defense Ministerhttps://southfront.org/there-will-be-no-military-operation-in-idlib-russian-defense-minister/ – “On September 18, Syria welcomed the agreement via its state media citing official diplomatic sources: ‘An official source at Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA on Tuesday that the Syrian Arab Republic has always welcomed any initiative that stops bloodshed and contributes to reestablishing security and stability to each inch that was struck by terrorism as it stresses determination to go ahead in its war against terrorism until all the Syrian territories are liberated whether by military operations or by local reconciliations, which proved their capability in stopping bloodshed and reestablishing stability to areas taken place in in a way that contributes to the turning back of the displaced to their areas… The source added that the Idleb agreement announced yesterday is a time-bound agreement and it is part of previous agreements on de-escalation zones resulted from the Astana track since the beginning of 2017, essentially stemming from commitment to sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Syrian territories as well as liberating all the Syrian territories whether from terrorism and terrorists or from any illegitimate foreign presence,’ the country’s news agency SANA reported.”

Fifteen Russian military service members have died because of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli military. This is absolutely contrary to the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership,’ the Russian military said in a statement, according to Russia Today, a Kremlin-linked news outlet.. Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told the state-run TASS news agency that Israel knew the reconnaissance plane was there and used it as cover to carry out the airstrike… ‘By using the Russian plane as a cover the Israeli air pilots made it vulnerable to Syrian air defense fire. As a result, the Ilyushin-20, its reflective surface being far greater than that of F-16, was downed by a missile launched with the S-200 system,’ Konashenkov said.” Comment: The cleverness of the Israelis is unparalleled.

Mike Pence Rattles Nazi Skeletons – by Finian Cunningham – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50286.htm – “Now that Paraguay’s President Benitez has reversed the earlier embassy decision by his predecessor, both Israel and the US have shown their acute consternation, no doubt because it undermines the political momentum Trump and Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu intended to generate among other nations to move their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem… Israel has threatened to close its embassy in Paraguay’s capital, Asuncion. And Mike Pence was reportedly hot on the phone to Benitez last week urging him to ‘remember past commitments and the historic relations the country has with both Israel and the United States’… Given the backsliding from the US over a wide range of its own past commitments, Washington’s exhortation to Paraguay rings decidedly hollow. Withdrawing from the Iran nuclear accord, the Paris Climate Agreement, NAFTA, TPP, and trashing its promise not to expand NATO forces towards Russia’s borders, are just some of the “commitments” that the US has shown a self-serving disdain for… Given the backsliding from the US over a wide range of its own past commitments, Washington’s exhortation to Paraguay rings decidedly hollow.

The US Is Encouraging Ukraine to go to War With Russia Over the Sea of Azov – by Peter Korzun – https://russia-insider.com/en/us-encouraging-ukraine-go-war-russia-over-sea-azov/ri24767 – “The only option the US administration is considering is that of providing Ukraine with arms to fight Russia and then egging Kiev on to escalate the tensions. And those are already dangerously running high. A spark can ignite a big fire at any time if the problem is not addressed in a positive way without saber rattling. It’s a pity the US is playing such a destructive role. The time is right for Russian and Ukrainian experts and officials to set their differences aside and start talking to find a peaceful solution to this urgent problem.”

Central Asian jihadis dig in for Idlib battle – by Alison Tahmizian Meuse – http://www.atimes.com/article/central-asian-jihadis-dig-in-for-idlib-battle/ – “An Idlib native who spoke to Asia Times on condition of anonymity said most of the Uyghur and Uzbek “immigrants” settled around Jisr al-Shughur and Idlib city, as well as Turkmen Mountain in neighboring Latakia region, usually with their families in tow… ‘They have their own special security and it’s impossible to enter and talk to them. They set up checkpoints around their areas in Idlib and the villages they live in,’ he said… He estimated there were at least 1,000 Turkistan party fighters in those localities, and 3,000 counting their wives and children… The exact number is difficult to pinpoint, even for journalists who have reported extensively inside Idlib over the course of the war. But Central Asians are ubiquitous in videos that have emerged in the wake of battles in the province, while Western jihadis are barely noticeable, suggesting the numbers to be at least in the low thousands, and possibly far higher.”

Kavanaugh Accuser is an Anti-Trump Leftist Who Attended Women’s March, Donated to DNC – by Paul Joseph Watson – https://www.infowars.com/kavanaugh-accuser-is-an-anti-trump-leftist-who-attended-womens-march-donated-to-dnc/ – “Ford, now a professor at Palo Alto University in California, accused Kavanaugh of holding her down on a bed and groping her at a house party in Maryland in the early 80’s when Kavanaugh was 17 and Ford was 15… Ford asserts that the attack was so severe, she thought Kavanaugh was going to “inadvertently” kill her, claiming, ‘He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.’.. The professor says that the assault only came to a stop when a third person, Mark Judge, intervened and jumped on top of them… However, Judge has completely denied that the incident ever took place. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California was also first made aware of the allegations back in July but concealed all information relating to them for weeks… It has since emerged that Ford has a history of left-wing political activism…”

The Slow Burn Coup Threatens Everything (18 min) – by Tom Luongo – https://youtu.be/Qyf4Jlv0PBo – ” I’ve talked about this a lot this week but it bears repeating. The coup against Trump is unsettling financial markets and this is why we’re seeing things unfold the way they are… This week I cover not only gold and bitcoin but the S&P 500 to show you why the chart is screaming for more upside while the fundamentalists continue to miss the 800 lb ‘global capital shift’ in the room.”

US diplomats involved in trafficking of human blood and pathogens for secret military program – by Dilyana Gaytandzhieva – http://dilyana.bg/us-diplomats-involved-in-trafficking-of-human-blood-and-pathogens-for-secret-military-program/ – “Human blood and pathogens as diplomatic cargo to the US Embassy – leaked documents… Internal documents and correspondence between the Ministry of Health of Georgia and the US Embassy to Tbilisi show what experiments have been conducted at the Lugar Center. Leaked documents reveal that the US Embassy to Tbilisi transports pathogens, as well as frozen human blood, as diplomatic cargo.”

Meeting Between US And Russian Energy Ministers In Moscow Show Contradictions Between Sideshttps://southfront.org/meeting-between-us-and-russian-energy-ministers-in-moscow-show-contradictions-between-sides/ – “Perry said that despite welcoming competition from Russia in energy markets across Europe, Asia and elsewhere, Moscow cannot continue using energy as an “economic weapon.” The US, according to Perry, is now capable of offering an alternative source of supply. “Just this week, the Energy Information Agency (EIA) announced that the United States is now the largest crude oil producer in the world. This summer, U.S. production exceeded Russian output for the first time since 1999,” the statement read… The statement also reiterated President Trump’s opposition of the Nordstream 2 pipeline, which ‘expands a single-source gas artery deep into Europe.’ ” – Comment: The “U.S.” currently has a high output of crude oil due to the sacrificing of the water tables of the U.S. under the auspices of the oil industry and compliant officials both in the Trump Admin. and its agencies. The Nordstream pipeline is nearly complete, financed both by Gazprom and Russian private investors and by European companies and their investors. The question now is how far the forces of the Deep State will take U.S. Corp. economic war.

Alfred Schaefer’s Speech At Bretzenheimhttps://americannationalsocialist.com/2017/12/05/alfred-schaefers-speech-at-bretzenheim/ “We now have a situation that is comparable to the following scenario: You are playing cards in a game that has been going on now for a long long time. The stakes in this game are very high. It is an all or nothing game… Suddenly you notice that the cards that you are dealt, are marked… What do you do? You can only lose if you continue this game with these marked cards. Your life depends on this game… I don’t know what you would do, but I would immediately slap each and every marked card that I found on the table and fiercely demand an explanation… We have been forced to use words that have the same effect as marked cards.” – Note: Alfred Schaefer is the brother of Monika Schaefer, the Canadian woman who was imprisoned in Germany (for violating German law as a Canadian in Canada!) while visiting the trial of Sylvia Stoltz, a courageous German lawyer originally imprisoned for having the temerity to actually defend her client against the Orwellian laws against questioning the real history around “The Holocaust.” Sylvia’s “trial” this time was for “illegal” words she had spoken at theAnti Censorship Coalition” (AZK) in Switzerland in 2012. Alfred lives in Germany. State prosecutors and police are now maneuvering to put him in prison as well.

The Daily 202: New York primary results challenge the crystallizing 2018 narrative – by James Hohmann – https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/daily-202/2018/09/14/daily-202-new-york-primary-results-challenge-the-crystallizing-2018-narrative/5b9b14491b326b47ec9595d4/ – “By wading aggressively into some primaries, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee incensed the professional left. Loud complaints from activists generated untold stories about internecine warfare. But the DCCC finished the primary season 39 for 41 in the primaries where it took sides, a win rate of 95 percent. In fact, more House Republican incumbents have lost primaries this cycle than Democrats.”

Lynch Mob Mentality – by Craig Murray – https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/09/lynch-mob-mentality/– “I was caught in a twitterstorm of hatred yesterday, much of it led by mainstream media journalists like David Aaronovitch and Dan Hodges, for daring to suggest that the basic elements of Boshirov and Petrov’s story do in fact stack up. What became very plain quite quickly was that none of these people had any grasp of the detail of the suspects’ full twenty minute interview, but had just seen the short clips or quotes as presented by British corporate and state media… As for me, when I see a howling mob rushing to judgement and making at least some claims which are utterly unfounded, and when I see that mob fueled and egged on by information from the security services propagated by exactly the same mainstream media journalists who propagandised the lies about Iraqi WMD, I see it as my job to stand in the way of the mob and to ask cool questions. If that makes them hate me, then I must be having some impact.”

BOSHIROV: Yes, they are our real names… SIMONYAN: But even now, frankly, you look very tense… PETROV: What would you look like if you were in our shoes?..

On the Censorship of Michael Hoffman’s Books by Amazon – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/on-the-censorship-of-michael-hoffmans-books-by-amazon/ – “A couple of months ago I did an interview with one of the foremost scholars of rabbinical Judaism, Michael Hoffman. The occasion was the release of his latest book “The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome”. At the time I did not expect to have to ask for a follow-up interview with him, but when I learned that Amazon had censored his books (please see Hoffman’s own account of this here). Specifically, the ban is on three of his books. A complete ban (Kindle + printed book) on Judaism’s Strange Gods: Revised and Expanded, as well as The Great Holocaust Trial: Revised and Expanded, while his textbook, Judaism Discovered, has been removed from the Kindle. I felt that I had to talk to him again and he kindly agreed to reply to my questions. I submit to you the full text of our Q&A which I will follow-up with a short commentary.” – Comment: The repression of Ideas foreshadows the death of a society. But, perhaps the White Hats will be arresting Jeff Bezos soon for his crimes

From the Gift-That-Keeps-On-Giving Desk: Secretive Russian GRU tests Trump with brazen tactics – by Morgan Chalfanthttp://thehill.com/policy/national-security/406369-secretive-russian-gru-tests-trump-with-brazen-tactics – “The operations of the shadowy military intelligence directorate, the modern version of which was founded in the early 1990s, exceed traditional espionage and span a spectrum of aggressive activity. The GRU conducted one of its most brazen operations in 2016 by breaching servers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and, according to U.S. intelligence officials and prosecutors, orchestrated the release of hacked emails as part of a broader, coordinated plot by Moscow to interfere in the presidential election… Both the Obama and Trump administrations slapped sanctions on GRU officers for the interference effort. And in July, special counsel Robert Mueller charged 12 GRU officers for their role in the DNC hack… ‘The GRU poses a very serious threat, especially in the context of what we know about Russian activities focused not just on our elections but on democratic institutions,’ said a senior State Department official.”

He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.’ ”

A reminder came earlier this week when the FBI released new crime statistics showing a 1.6 percent increase in marijuana-related arrests in 2016 compared to 2015… The figures represent a change in the overall trend, with marijuana related arrests declining steadily since 2008, and even hitting a two-decade low in 2015. But the numbers still show over 650,000 arrests made in an endless pursuit to rid the country of a non-lethal drug. (emphasis added)

Armageddon Rides In The Balance – by Paul Craig Robertshttps://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/10/armageddon-rides-in-the-balance/ – “I have explained that the leftwing lost its bearings when the Soviet Union collapsed and socialism gave way to neoliberal privatizations. The moral fury of the leftwing movement had to go somewhere, and it found its home in Identity Politics in which the white heterosexual male takes the place of the capitalist, and his victim groups—blacks, women, homosexuals, illegal immigrants—take the place of the working class.. The consequences of the leftwing’s alliance with warmongers and liars is the leftwing’s loss of veracity. The left has endorsed a CIA orchestration—“Russiagate”—for which there is no known evidence, but which the left supports as proven truth… The question is unavoidable: Why do the American people put up with this? Are they so insouciant that they have no realization that, if a president can be driven from office because he wants peace with Russia, the removed president’s successor will have to stand against Russia or also be driven from office. Trust and negotiation between the nuclear powers becomes impossible. Why do Americans support conflict with a nuclear power that can completely destroy America?” (emphasis added)

Chang – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12988/china-social-credit-system – “Officials prevented Liu Hu, a journalist, from taking a flight because he had a low score. The Global Times, a tabloid that belongs to the Communist Party-owned People’s Daily, reported that, as of the end of April 2018, authorities had blocked individuals from taking 11.14 million flights and 4.25 million high-speed rail trips… Chinese officials, however, are using the lists for determining more than just access to planes and trains. ‘I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school,’ Liu said. ‘You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time.’.. Hou Yunchun, a former deputy director of the State Council’s development research center, said at a forum in Beijing in May that the social credit system should be administered so that “discredited people become bankrupt”. ‘If we don’t increase the cost of being discredited, we are encouraging discredited people to keep at it,’ Hou said. ‘That destroys the whole standard.’ ”

Instead, Putin said, he and Erdogan and Rohani discussed a “phased stabilization” in Idlib that could involve peace agreements with government opponents who are “ready for dialogue.”..

FDA Wants to Turn CBD Oil Into a Drug that Will Cost $32,500 (per year) as They Ban all Other CBD Oils – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/fda-wants-to-turn-cbd-oil-into-a-drug-that-will-cost-32500-as-they-ban-all-other-cbd-oils/ – “For years, consumers have benefitted from access to cheap, safe, and effective CBD oil supplements. But now the FDA says that CBD is a drug, not a supplement—a drug which will be sold for $32,500 a year… Legally the FDA could at any time remove all CBD supplements from the market, on its own volition, or if the drug company which holds drug market exclusivity requests FDA do so. Unless we change the rules, we may see a government-sponsored monopoly on CBD oil, and in the near future, additional monopolies on other cheap, safe, and effective supplements… This is happening because of a back-channel that allows natural supplements to be turned into drugs by the FDA… It works like this: if a company is investigating a substance as a drug, FDA rules give the company market exclusivity on that substance—even if it is currently being sold as a supplement.” (emphasis added)

And, obviously, they don’t want that… Dr. Farrah has been forced to close her renowned health clinic and wellness center due to fears for the safety of herself and her family. Her medical center had garnered quite a reputation for assisting people in healing naturally during its time in operation.”

The sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum… During a solar maximum, the sun gives off more heat and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in magnetic waves… The sun was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020, but it appears to be heading in early which could prove to be bad news… Vencore Weather, a meteorological website, said: ‘Low solar activity is known to have consequences on Earth’s weather and climate and it also is well correlated with an increase in cosmic rays that reach the upper part of the atmosphere.’ ” (emphasis added) Comment: More cosmic rays will cause more low altitude clouds, cooling the Earth.

Are New York’s Free LinkNYC Internet Kiosks Tracking Your Movements? – by Ava Kofman – https://theintercept.com/2018/09/08/linknyc-free-wifi-kiosks/ – “According to Meyers, the “LinkNYC Mobile Observation” code collects the user’s longitude and latitude, as well as the user’s browser type, operating system, device type, device identifiers, and full URL clickstreams (including date and time) and aggregates this information into a database. In Meyers’s view, this code — along with the functions of the “RxLocation” codebase — suggests that the company is interested in tracking the locations of Wi-Fi users in real time. If such code were run on a mobile app or kiosk, he said, the company would be able to make advertisements available in real time based on where and who someone was, and that this would constitute a potential violation of the company’s privacy policy.”

It appears the Trump White House is now signalling that an American attack on Syrian government forces and locations is all but inevitable… But this time the stakes are higher as Russia has built up an unprecedented number of warships in the Mediterranean Sea along the Syrian coast in response to prior reports that the U.S., France, and Great Britain could be preparing an attack.” – (emphasis added)

Moscow Has Upped the Ante in Syria – As Syrian forces backed by Russia launch the final showdown in Syria against jihadist extremists in Idlib province, the potential for a U.S.-Russia confrontation has never been greater, as VIPS warns in this memo to the president – http://theduran.com/moscow-has-upped-the-ante-in-syria/ – “Mr. President: We are concerned that you may not have been adequately briefed on the upsurge of hostilities in northwestern Syria, where Syrian armed forces with Russian support have launched a full-out campaign to take back the al-Nusra/al-Qaeda/ISIS-infested province of Idlib. The Syrians will almost certainly succeed, as they did in late 2016 in Aleppo. As in Aleppo, it will mean unspeakable carnage, unless someone finally tells the insurgents theirs is a lost cause… That someone is you. The Israelis, Saudis, and others who want unrest to endure are egging on the insurgents, assuring them that you, Mr. President, will use US forces to protect the insurgents in Idlib, and perhaps also rain hell down on Damascus. We believe that your senior advisers are encouraging the insurgents to think in those terms…” (emphasis added)

Terrorists, White Helmets met in Idlib, Syria to plot false-flag chemical attack – Russian defense ministry concerned about US proxy forces faking a “chemical attack” that would give US the excuse to dig in indefinitely – by Seraphim Hanisch – http://theduran.com/terrorists-and-white-helmets-met-in-idlib-to-plot-false-flag-chemical-attack-video/ – “The real situation in Idlib is defined through the activities of this large and combat-capable terrorist group,” Nebenzia said, adding that the terrorists pose a serious security threat both to the region and the entire world… ‘The terrorists in Idlib hold millions of people hostage and raid neighboring cities and villages,’ Nebenzia said. He pointed out that they also persecute any dissenting voices within the ranks of the local armed groups commanders, effectively quelling any attempts of a peaceful reconciliation with the Syrian government by killing the dissidents.”

City Kicked Out Their Cops and Politicians 7 Years Ago and Now They Have the Lowest Crime Rates in Mexico – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/city-kicked-out-cops-politicians-7-years-ago-lowest-crime-rates-mexico.html – “On April 15 of this year, Cherán celebrated seven years since their revolt against what they call “the narco government”. The people marked the seventh year of self-governance by naming third Council of Elders… While the community guard is by no means a perfect institution it does offer benefits to the locals that were not available under the police or cartels. Local business owners are no longer forced to pay several hundred dollars a month to criminals. The community guard is accountable to the town assembly and chosen by the people… This model is closer to traditional indigenous governance systems than what we are used to seeing in most modern cities. However, it offers a window into a different possibility that awaits for those individuals and communities that are willing to take their lives and their governance, back into their own hands. When the people are forced to either accept violence or defend their homes, it seems obvious they will organize and fight.”

New DARPA Brain Chip Gives Military Pilots Control Over Drone Swarms – by Nicholas West – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/09/new-darpa-brain-chip-gives-military-pilots-control-over-drone-swarms.html – ” ‘As of today, signals from the brain can be used to command and control … not just one aircraft but three simultaneous types of aircraft,’ said Justin Sanchez, who directs DARPA’s biological technology office, at the Agency’s 60th-anniversary event in Maryland… More importantly, DARPA was able to improve the interaction between pilot and the simulated jet to allow the operator, a paralyzed man named Nathan, to not just send but receive signals from the craft… ‘The signals from those aircraft can be delivered directly back to the brain so that the brain of that user [or pilot] can also perceive the environment,’ said Sanchez. ‘It’s taken a number of years to try and figure this out.’ ”

Skripal and Syria… The Imperative of Criminalizing Russia – by Finian Cunningham – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/10/skripal-and-syria-imperative-criminalizing-russia.html – “In this short clip, Britain’s envoy to the UN Karen Pierce tells reporters the rationale of the British government in convening the emergency session at the Security Council. The envoy reveals more than she intended… She says that the United Kingdom and its allies would ‘continue to contest the Russian view of the world in which their state operatives can carry out these sorts of attacks [in England] and can encourage and support the Syrian authorities in their attacks on civilians.’.. Pierce added: ‘So this is actually a continuum, if you like, of contesting that view of the world where you can act outside the norms of international rules and civilized behavior.’.. Evidently, the British government is trying to criminalize both Russia and Syria at the same time, over the same alleged crime – unlawful use of chemical weapons… One possible theory in the Skripal affair is that the two alleged Russian men were members of organized crime. Reports emerged this week that former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal was working with Spanish state security services to crackdown on Russian underworld gangs. It is possible that the gangs uncovered Skripal’s meddling in their illicit business model, and simply sent a couple of heavies over to Britain to deal with him. But how such a hypothetical account can be twisted by the British authorities to be “proof” of Kremlin involvement is a telling question… It is significant that the British authorities have flatly refused requests from the Russian side for information to identify the alleged Skripal hitmen. For example, British regulations require fingerprints to be submitted by all visitors to the country. Why have the British refused to give fingerprints to Russian authorities which could then lead to an identification and perhaps explanation of the two alleged suspects?”

‘Hit China with sanctions’ to end human rights abuse in Xinjiang – Report by Human Rights Watch calls for tough action after UN and US reveal that up to one million Muslim Uighurs have been detained – by Gordon Watts – http://www.atimes.com/article/hit-china-with-sanctions-to-end-human-rights-abuse-in-xinjiang/ – “In a 117-page report released on Monday and entitled Eradicating Ideological Viruses: China’s Campaign of Repression Against Xinjiang’s Muslims, Human Rights Watch has called for the international community to impose sanctions on the world’s second-largest economy… Up to one million Muslims have reportedly been detained, according to estimates from the non-governmental organization based in New York, the United Nations and United States government officials… ‘The argument that one million Uighurs are detained in re-education centers is completely untrue,’ Hu Lianhe, a senior official of China’s Communist Party, told the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. ‘There are no such things as re-education centers.’ ”

US officials, Venezuelan military officers discussed anti-Maduro coup plot: Reporthttps://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/09/09/573604/US-Venezuela-military-officers-President-Nicolas-Maduro-coup-plot – “Trump administration officials and a former Venezuelan military commander who took part in the discussions were cited in a New York Times report on Saturday as saying that a secret channel was established between American officials and the coup plotters… According to the report, the US-backed Venezuelan opposition elements asked Washington to supply encrypted radios to a few hundred service members who had reportedly soured on Maduro, but American officials decided against sending material support while dozens of the coup plotters were later arrested… It said the rebelling Venezuelan military officials were initially rebuffed by the Obama administration, but were more successful in reaching out to the current administration after US President Donald Trump declared last year that Washington had a “military option” for Venezuela.”

Facebook censors NPR report exposing the fake science behind school shooting claims – by Ethan Huff – http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/facebook-censors-npr-report-exposing-the-fake-science-behind-school-shooting-claims/ – “NPR was brave enough to challenge the official narrative, joining up with the non-profit group Child Trends to take a closer look at the alleged statistics on school-associated gun violence. What they found is that the U.S. Department of Education is greatly inflating the numbers, presumably to push the anti-gun agenda… ‘More than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened,’ NPR revealed in a bold article entitled, “The School Shootings That Weren’t.” But people who tried to share this NPRarticle on Facebook found that the Zuckerberg empire isn’t too happy with it… Writing for DCClothesline.com, Jonathan Miltimore reported that a colleague of his, Sean Malone, tried to share the article with his several thousand Facebook followers and friends, only to have it flagged as “spam” and removed from the platform entirely… ‘Facebook’s crackdown on fake news and ‘hate speech’ has been well chronicled,’ writes Miltimore. ‘There are many reasons to be wary of such censorship: Who decides what’s true? Who decides what’s fake? Who decides what’s hateful?’ ” – Comment: OK, we’re now at the point where Facebook is censoring NPR!

Britain Should Be in the Dock Over Skripal Saga, Not Russiahttps://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/09/07/britain-should-be-in-the-dock-over-skripal-saga-not-russia.html – “Then on Thursday Britain summoned the United Nations Security Council to hash over the lurid claims against Russia without providing any further substantiating details to back up the sensational accusations… As Vasily Nebenzia, Russia’s envoy to the UN, remarked, the whole aim of the British claims is to whip up more international anti-Russia frenzy and hysteria. No sooner had Britain unleashed its latest allegations, a joint statement was released by the United States, Canada, Germany and France supporting the British claims.”

China Is Detaining Muslims in Vast Numbers. The Goal: ‘Transformation.’ – by Chris Buckley – “https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/08/world/asia/china-uighur-muslim-detention-camp.html – “Inside, hundreds of ethnic Uighur Muslims spend their days in a high-pressure indoctrination program, where they are forced to listen to lectures, sing hymns praising the Chinese Communist Party and write “self-criticism” essays, according to detainees who have been released… The goal is to remove any devotion to Islam… Abdusalam Muhemet, 41, said the police detained him for reciting a verse of the Quran at a funeral. After two months in a nearby camp, he and more than 30 others were ordered to renounce their past lives. Mr. Muhemet said he went along but quietly seethed… ‘That was not a place for getting rid of extremism,” he recalled. “That was a place that will breed vengeful feelings and erase Uighur identity.’ ”

US Officially Admits It’s Not Going To Withdraw Forces From Syriahttps://southfront.org/us-officially-admits-its-not-going-to-withdraw-forces-from-syria/ – “According to James Jeffrey, President Donald Trump supports the strategy that envisions an indefinite military and diplomatic presence in Syria, contrary to the President’s previous inclination to withdraw US troops after defeating ISIS… ‘The new policy is we’re no longer pulling out by the end of the year,’ he told reporters in Washington. Initially the 2,200 US troops deployed to eastern Syria in support of the multi-national coalition against ISIS was supposed to leave. Instead, they will remain in support of a combined military and diplomatic effort to limit Iranian and Russian influence over post-war reconstruction. ‘That means we are not in a hurry,’ Jeffrey said, adding that he was “confident” Trump supports what he called a “more active approach” in Syria.”

US Ambassador To UN Goes Wild, Claims Russia, Syria, Iran Seek To Kill Civilians, Destroy Schools And Hospitals In Idlibhttps://southfront.org/us-ambassador-to-un-goes-wild-claims-russia-syria-iran-seek-to-kill-civilians-destroy-schools-and-hospitals-in-idlib/ – “In her statement during the UN Security Council briefing, Haley said that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and its “enablers,” Russia and Iran have a playbook for the war in Syria. First, they surround a civilian area. Next, they make the ‘preposterous claim that everyone in the area is a terrorist,’ thus making all civilians targets. That is followed by a “starve and surrender” campaign, during which Syrian security forces keep attacking until the people no longer have food, clean water, or shelter. ‘It’s a playbook of death. The Assad regime has spent the last seven years refining it with Russia and Iran’s help.’.. ‘But when Russia and the Assad regime say they want to counter terrorism, they actually mean they want to bomb schools, hospitals, and homes. They want to punish the civilians who had the courage to rise up against Assad. When the regime calls the brave White Helmets terrorists, we know they are not serious about fighting terrorism. The United States will not cooperate with Russia on the Assad regime’s slaughter of innocent civilians,’ she claimed.”

The Truths That Won’t be Told: How Israel Spies on US Citizens – by Alain Gresh – https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/09/03/the-truths-that-wont-be-told-how-israel-spies-on-us-citizens/ – “Everything seems to be going well for Israel, but its American supporters, despite their extensive resources, are nervous. The future seems dark to them, and even those most likely to support them are wavering. The documentary shows Vaknin-Gil admitting in a Knesset hearing: ‘Today we [have] lost the second generation of Jews, which are the millennial generation of Jews. I hear this from their parents, who come and explain to me what a hard time they’re having with their kids at Friday dinners. They don’t recognise the state of Israel and don’t see us as an entity to be admired.’ ”

Outrageous: Bioethicist says parents may have ‘right’ to kill born children – by Cassy Fiano-Chesser – https://www.liveaction.org/news/bioethicist-parents-kill-born-children/ – ” ‘[T]here might be an argument that gives, for example, the genetic parents a right to kill (or leave to die) their newborn infant even if the infant has a right to life. For example, it might be argued that people have a right to their genetic privacy and having the newborn infant in the world that carries the genetic material of the genetic parents violates their right to genetic privacy. Put another way: the fetus does not have a right to the genetic material of her parents.’ – Finnish bioethicist Joona Räsänen… Princeton bioethicist Peter Singer has likewise argued in favor of infanticide, especially for babies with disabilities. When asked if he would kill a baby with a disability, Singer answered, ‘Yes, if that was in the best interests of the baby and of the family as a whole.’ ”

Brett Kavanaugh was Deep State’s Point Man for Vince Foster Murder Cover-up – by Hugh Turley – http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=100939 – “On March 10, 1995, four days after Rodriguez’s resignation was effective, an FBI agent sent a memorandum to Kavanaugh that was copied to Tuohey. The memo presented a chronology: ‘(16:15-16:30) Patrick Knowlton describes a small brown foreign car with Arkansas license plates in the Ft. Marcy parking lot. Knowlton also described a suit jacket and a briefcase inside this car.’.. The memo failed to mention that Knowlton was unwavering that the car he saw was not Foster’s 1989 gray Honda. The Arkansas license plate seen by Knowlton was used to make it appear that he saw Foster’s car. Although it stated that Knowlton saw a brown car, it suppressed the fact that Knowlton was certain the car was an early 80s model and not a 1989. The chronology continued: ‘(17:00 +/-) Judy Doody identifies Foster’s vehicle parked in the Ft. Marcy parking lot.’ This false statement was used to make it appear Foster’s car was in the parking lot when Foster was dead.”

I Know Who the “Senior Official” Is Who Wrote the NY Times Op-Ed – by Paul Craig Roberts – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50203.htm – “The op-ed is an obvious forgery. As a former senior official in a presidential administration, I can state with certainty that no senior official would express disagreement anonymously. Anonymous dissent has no credibility. Moreover, the dishonor of it undermines the character of the writer. A real dissenter would use his reputation and the status of his high position to lend weight to his dissent… The New York Times’ claim to have vetted the writer also lacks credibility, as the New York Times has consistently printed extreme accusations against Trump and against Vladimir Putin without supplying a bit of evidence.”

New details surface about terrorists’ preparations to stage chemical attack in Idleb and Hama – by Hazem Sabbagh – https://sana.sy/en/?p=146450 – “The sources say that militants from the “Turkistani Party” and “Hai’et Tahrir al-Cham” held on Thursday a meeting with members of the White Helmets in Jisr al-Shughour city west of Idleb, during which the roles were assigned for staging a chemical attack with the help of Western intelligence agencies… The sources say that the White Helmets have picked three new locations for carrying out the attacks after information was leaked about the previously-planned locations, and the three locations are: al-Najia town in Jisr al-Shughour countryside, al-Hamawsh town in the northwestern countryside of Hama, and Kafr Nubbul town in Idleb countryside.”

Britain, Allies Urge Moscow To Accept ‘Compelling Evidence’ In Novichok Attackhttps://www.rferl.org/a/world-leaders-back-u-k-s-novichok-claims/29475751.html – “Prior to the council session, the leaders of Britain, the United States, France, Germany, and Canada said they backed British law enforcement’s conclusion that the poisoning was “almost certainly approved at a senior government level” in Russia… In a joint statement, they also said they have “full confidence” in the British assessment that the two suspects were GRU officers, and urged Russia to provide full disclosure of its Novichok program.. The statement was signed by British Prime Minister Theresa May, U.S. President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau… The allegations against Moscow reiterated what many in the West previously have said about the nerve agent attack against the Skripals — namely, that the act was approved at high levels of the Russian government.” – Comment: “Official sources” purportedly in the UK government have stated that the government now considers that it is at war with Russia over this matter.

From the Time-To-Smell-The-Coffee Desk: The Secret Lie That Started the Afghan War – by James Corbett (26 min) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Moz8hs2lJik – “Dr. Rice has stated that she asked the National Security Council staff in her first week in office for a new presidential initiative on al Qaeda. In early March, the staff was directed to craft a more aggressive strategy aimed at eliminating the al Qaeda threat. The first draft of that approach, in the form of a presidential directive, was circulated by the NSC staff in June of 2001, and a number of meetings were held that summer at the deputy secretary level to address the policy questions involved, such as relating an aggressive strategy against Taliban to U.S.-Pakistan relations… By the first week of September, the process had arrived at a strategy that was presented to principals and later became NSPD-9, the President’s first major substantive national security decision directive. It was presented for a decision by principals on September 4th, 2001, seven days before the 11th, and later signed by the President, with minor changes and a preamble to reflect the events of September 11th, in October.” (emphases added)RUMSFELD 9/11 COMMISSION TESTIMONY MARCH 23, 2004 – Comment: The decision (taken by the North Atlantic Council on Oct. 2, 2001) to invoke Article 5 of the Washington (NATO) Treaty, was based exclusively on the Bush planning documents, and incorporated their language, and did not include a shred of evidence that any outside force(s) were involved in the 9/11 “attacks.” The Article 5 decision (the first time this was invoked) forced mandatory cooperation with the U.S. wars in the wake of 9/11 onto the nations bound by the Washington Treaty – All based on no evidence. Incidentally, both British and U.S. forces were already in transit to Afghanistan before 9/11/2001.

From the Lies-And-The-Lying-Liars Desk: Mattis: Syrian Rebels Have No Chemical Weaponshttps://www.voanews.com/a/mattis-syrian-rebels-have-no-chemical-weapons/4558451.html – ” ‘We have zero intelligence that shows the [Syrian] opposition has any chemical capability,’ Mattis said. On the other hand, Mattis said there is evidence that President Bashar al-Assad has ‘done this before and we are watching very closely for this.’.. U.S. officials have warned of a potential humanitarian catastrophe as the Syrian government moves in on the last remaining stronghold of Syrian rebels in the northwestern province of Idlib. An estimated three million people live in the area… The Trump administration has twice launched airstrikes against Syria’s government in response to the chemical weapons attacks… ‘Let us be clear, it remains our firm stance that if President Bashar al-Assad chooses to again use chemical weapons, the United States and its Allies will respond swiftly and appropriately,’ said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.”

What Should Putin Do? – by Paul Craig Roberts – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/50189.htm – “The Saker intends to answer my question. We will see where he takes this issue. I will say that this discussion has risks for each of us, because those we are attempting to alert, warn, and to bring out of their insouciance will characterize us as “Russian agents” and “Putin stooges” for doubting US primacy. We will be accused of trying to protect Russia with a peace campaign… What I think tells most against Martyanov’s optimism is that it is he, The Saker, Stephen Cohen, Pat Buchanan, and myself who are marginalized, not the crazies who are responsible for the dangerous and irresponsible provocations of the world’s most capable and best armed nuclear power—Russia. The crazies are in control of the US National Security Council, office of Homeland Security, office of National Intelligence, CIA, US Department of State, Pentagon, the US media, and the US Democratic Party. Republican Senator John McCain is being made into a hero for his hatred of Russia and support for war.” (emphasis added)

How To Own Life Like A Fucking Wizard – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/09/04/how-to-own-life-like-a-fucking-wizard/ – “Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. We’re a bunch of hairless apes on a spinning rock in space, and we only know the stories that we’ve been told by the people who got here before us. We come out as clueless little babies, then when we get bigger we learn some fancy words and how to open a bag of chips, but underneath all the data we add on top of our fresh baby minds there’s still the same cluelessness we started out with. The process of sorting out the true and useful data from the false and unhelpful is confusing, difficult, and prone to error. So people tend to just listen to the most confident-sounding voice in the room; the one who steps forward and says ‘I know what’s going on, follow me.’ ”

Anti-Vaccine Japan Has World’s Lowest Child Death Rate & Highest Life Expectancy – by Amanda-Mary – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/japan-has-the-lowest-infant-mortality-rate-following-ban-on-mandatory-vaccinations/ – “Japan’s anti-vax policies have long been criticised by vaccine pushers in the US who claim that vaccinating the public “promotes health.”.. However, Japanese people live longer, healthier lives than Americans, with babies born in the US twice as likely to die in infancy than those born in Japan… It’s clear to see that Western nations have a lot to learn from the Japanese when it comes to their approach to vaccinations and issues facing public health… The Japanese are vaccine sceptics, to put it simply, and due to adverse reactions suffered by Japanese children, have banned many vaccines.”

The Pentagon suspended his top-secret security clearance May 1, 2017, when he exposed through an internal review that Stefan Halper, who was then an emeritus Cambridge professor, had received roughly $1 million in tax-payer funded money to write Defense Department foreign policy reports… ..he was recalled to the Pentagon, stripped of his prestigious White House detail, and ordered to perform bureaucratic make-work in a Pentagon annex Bigley calls “the land of misfit toys.” His security clearance was eventually revoked in March 2018, despite the Pentagon ‘refusing to turn over a single page of its purported evidence of Lovinger’s wrongdoing…’ ”

UK: Syrian Terrorists Can’t Possibly Be Planning Chemical Weapons False Flag, Because Russia Said They Are – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/uk-syrian-terrorists-cant-possibly-be-planning-chemical-weapons-false-flag-because-russia-said-7d749d76ea00 – “So let’s recap: it is the British government’s official public position that the extremist jihadist factions who have been holing up in their final stronghold preparing for the long-awaited military confrontation in Idlib would have no incentive whatsoever to stage a false flag chemical attack in order to rally western reinforcements against the Syrian government and thereby escape defeat. Far more likely, in the British government’s estimation, is that the warnings of such an attack are a “smoke screen” to cover for the Syrian government’s plan to perpetrate its own chemical attack in order to accomplish the key strategic goal of suffocating a few dozen children. Oh yeah, and terrorists should be given safe passage to areas where they can safely regroup, because that’s the thing that you do with terrorists now.”

Ongoing and Accelerating Neocon-American-Zionist-Imperialist (NAZI) Destruction of USA and the Worldhttps://www.veteranstoday.com/2017/04/30/ongoing/I’m afraid I agree with all of the key elements of Pakistani physics professor Mujahid Kamran’s analysis, laid out in this article. If you do not reject it out of hand as fantastic, beyond belief, and a vast unhinged “conspiracy theory,” then perhaps you will take this into your inner laboratory and contemplate what we can, individually and collectively, do to help shift the direction that the world, under the influence of these powerful and committed psychopaths, is now headed. – bruce.reid

Note: The above is an email I sent out to my relatively small list of correspondents. I’m sure that many of you are familiar with much of what’s contained in Prof. Kamran’s article, and are well down the road of responding to the ongoing emergency and charting courses toward the world we envision. Perhaps, however, you have not seen it expressed in such a blunt and concentrated way before, one that focuses on some of the main and saliant considerations regarding the “NAZI” (Not-see) consortium driving most of the misery today on our beautiful planet.

Ukraine separatists say leader, Aleksandr Zakharchenko, killed in cafe bombing – from AP – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/wires/ap/article-6119339/Ukraine-separatists-report-death-leader-Zakharchenko.html – ” ‘Instead of fulfilling the Minsk accords and finding ways to resolve the internal conflict, the Kiev war party is implementing a terrorist scenario,’ Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said of Zakharchenko’s death. ‘Having failed to fulfill the promise of peace, apparently they decided to turn to a bloodbath.’.. Igor Guskov, chief of staff of the Ukrainian Security Service, rejected allegations of any involvement, saying: ‘We have reason to believe that the death of Zakharchenko may be the result of an internal criminal conflict among the rebels … but we do not exclude that it was an attempt by Russian special services to remove this odious figure.’ ”

As reported by PressTV this came as the Syrian Army is preparing for a “decisive battle” to drive militants out of the northern province of Idlib… Idlib shares borders with Turkey and is currently under the control of various militant groups. Erdogan is attempting to stave off the offensive while the Syrian army prepares to retake the region. As reported by Sputnik: ‘Idlib is one of the Syrian areas where terrorists and militants, particularly those who are part of the Jabhat Nusra terror group or affiliated with it, are still active. Moreover, thousands of militants have been transported to the province from other Syrian regions under deals with Damascus.’ ”

From the It-Can’t-Happen-Here Desk: Economic Doom Returns: Emerging Market Currencies Collapse To Record Lows As Global Financial Chaos Accelerates – by Michael Snyder – http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/economic-doom-returns-emerging-market-currencies-collapse-to-record-lows-as-global-financial-chaos-accelerates – “As Wolf Richter has noted, the Argentine peso was worth one U.S. dollar in 2002.. Today, it is worth 2.4 centsThat is what a collapse looks like… (!) – In an desperate attempt to stop the bleeding, the Argentine central bank raised interest rates to 60 percent… The financial nightmare in Turkey is the gift that just keeps on giving. Their entire system is in the process of imploding, and President Erdogan seems to be in a persistent state of panic these days… Also on Thursday, the Brazilian central bank directly intervened in the market to keep their currency from plunging to another new all-time record low… A global financial crisis has begun, but because it has not really affected the United States too much yet, the mainstream media and most Americans aren’t really paying any attention… But if the markets start crashing here too, then it will suddenly be all over the news… Most people are aware that most of the biggest stock market crashes in U.S. history have happened in the fall, and the calendar is about to turn to the month of September.”

Silicon Valley’s attempts to self-police are anti-democratic. They’re also not new. – by Grant Wythoff – https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/silicon-valleys-attempts-to-self-police-are-anti-democratic-theyre-also-not-new/2018/08/17/cd44fb22-9b1d-11e8-843b-36e177f3081c_story.html – “Technocracy Inc. was a political movement that left no place for public participation in the process of governing. As political theorist Langdon Winner described it, “The authority rests on a human population dwarfed and submissive before forces it cannot understand or influence but entirely content with the services offered.” Without credible legislation to rein in the excesses of tech companies, and without a workable means of allowing the public to influence the way we communicate, we will be left by default with the Technocratic system that seems to have resurfaced, in which democratic citizens are addressed as passive users.”

The Balfour Declaration 3. Peeling the Onion: Secret Collusions – by Jim Macgregor and Gerry Docherty – https://firstworldwarhiddenhistory.wordpress.com/2017/07/04/the-balfour-declaration-3-peeling-the-onion-secret-collusions/ – “Furthermore, the War Cabinet sought the American President’s opinion on the proposed Jewish homeland in Palestine. [3] The minutes of the 245th meeting of the War Cabinet in London revealed that Woodrow Wilson was directly involved in the final draft of the Declaration. So too was his minder, Colonel Edward Mandell House [4] and America’s only Jewish Chief Justice, Louis Brandeis, [5] both of whom telegrammed different views to the British government. [6] On 10 September, Mandell House indicated that the President advised caution before proceeding with a statement on a future Jewish homeland; on 27 September, Judge Brandeis cabled that the President was in entire sympathy with the declaration. Much can change in politics inside two and a half weeks… As each layer of the onion is slowly peeled away from the hidden inner core of the eponymous Declaration, it becomes apparent that the given story has glossed over key figures and critical issues. There are hidden depths to this episode that mainstream historians have kept from public view and participants have deliberately misrepresented or omitted from their memoirs.” Comment: MacGregor and Docherty have created an incredible information resource with this blog, to which they posted weekly for something like 10 years, culminating in the publication of their book (I just ordered) Prolonging the Agony: How The Anglo-American Establishment Deliberately Extended WWI by Three-and-a-Half Years . I was just looking for some info on the involvement of William Mandell House in the drafting of the Balfour Declaration and I hit the jackpot.

REPORT: The ‘Billion-Dollar Per Year Climate Industry’ Is Trying To Weaponize State Attorneys General – by Michael Bastasch – https://dailycaller.com/2018/08/29/weaponize-attorney-generals/ – “A new report based on documents collected over two-and-a-half years through open records requests outlines an “elaborate campaign” by the “billion-dollar per year climate industry” to weaponize state attorneys general (AGs) in service of the global warming agenda… That campaign culminated in what the report labels “law enforcement for hire” because it allows political donors to pay for state prosecutors ‘in the service of an ideological, left-wing, climate policy agenda.’.. ..’It represents private interests commandeering the state’s police powers to target opponents of their policy agenda and to hijack the justice system as a way to overturn the democratic process’s rejection of a political agenda,’ Competitive Enterprise senior fellow Chris Horner wrote in his report, a copy of which was given to The Daily Caller News Foundation… Horner’s report details the actions of a group of AGs and activists, led by former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, that eventually led to former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg paying for “legal fellows” to work in state law enforcement.”

When officers saw that the girl was entirely fine, luckily, they left without arresting anyone. However, shortly after, the Widen’s got a visit from DCFS… The DCFS launched their own investigation into the family and interrogated Winden’s 8-year-old daughter and her 17-year old son. But they didn’t stop there. DCFS also went after other family members, and even their pediatrician.” (emphasis added)

The source told Fox News the hack was from a Chinese company, describing it as a front for Chinese intelligence.’ ”

Azerbaijan Mulls Cooperation with CSTO – by Alex Gorka – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/08/28/azerbaijan-mulls-cooperation-with-csto.html – “It is true that Azerbaijan is sticking to a policy of neutrality. It has a close relationship with NATO. Although a party to the EU’s Eastern Partnership program, it has refused to sign an association agreement with Brussels. It enjoys a special relationship with Israel while also supporting the idea of an independent Palestinian state… Baku sees the advantage in preserving as much wiggle room as it can, and this policy is quite understandable.”

Volvo Penta Cuts Off Supplies Of Its Engines To Russian Militaryhttps://southfront.org/volvo-penta-cuts-off-supples-of-its-engines-to-russian-military/ – “The move was caused by anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the US and its allies. As a result of this situation, the MTU engines were put only on five ships handed over to the Russian Navy in 2014-2015. Then, the rest of ships were equipped with China-made CHD622V20 20-cylinder diesels instead of MTU 16V4000M90 engines.”

The percentage is the highest level of support for legalization ever reported in a nationwide, scientific poll… Majorities of Democrats (77 percent), Independents (62 percent), and Republicans (57 percent) back legalization. The results of a 2017 nationwide Gallup poll similarly found majority support among all three groups.”

US Poised to Hit Syria Harder – by Peter Korzun – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/08/27/us-poised-to-hit-syria-harder.html – “A staged “chemical attack” is the way to invent a pretext for using force against Syria and pressing for a rollback of Russia and Iran. With Idlib liberated and an agreement reached between Damascus and the Kurds, Syria will have fundamentally regained its territorial integrity, making it “lost” to the West and its Persian Gulf allies. Russia, Iran, and Turkey will act as mediators promoting a peaceful settlement. The “chemical attack” provocation will be staged as an attempt to scuttle such a development.”

Air France had already drastically cut its operations to Iran as it transferred all connections to its low-cost airline Joon this summer, and was down to one flight per week from the prior usual of three… And Dutch airline KLM had previously announced last month the suspension of all flights from Amsterdam, set to also take place in September.”

Will Turkey’s ‘strategic partnership’ with Russia cover Idlib? – by Semih Idiz – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2018/08/turkey-russia-does-cooperation-on-syria-cover-idlib.html – “During his press conference in Moscow, Cavusoglu referred for the first time to Russia as “Turkey’s strategic partner,” which many took as a subtle message to Moscow that Ankara expected to be treated in Idlib in a manner befitting such a partnership… Putin, who received Cavusoglu in Moscow, also underlined the importance of the deepening ties with Turkey… Despite these diplomatic niceties it remains unclear what, if any, arrangements are being hammered out for Idlib. All the indications are that Moscow expects Turkey to take on groups such as HTS if it wants to prevent an operation in the region.”

Shocking Study Shows Fracking Is Depleting US Drinking Water Sources at a Catastrophic Rate – by John Vibes – https://www.naturalblaze.com/2018/08/shocking-study-shows-fracking-is-depleting-us-drinking-water-sources-at-a-catastrophic-rate.html – “According to a recent study conducted at Duke University revealed that hydraulic fracking is having a catastrophic impact on water supplies throughout the US. The findings of the study suggest that fracking is using far much more water than before, and putting a huge dent in the amount of drinkable water available in water supplies… …wastewater production in major shale gas and oil production regions has increased; from 2011 to 2016, the water use per well increased up to 770%, while flowback and produced water volumes generated within the first year of production increased up to 1440%. The water-use intensity (that is, normalized to the energy production) increased ubiquitously in all U.S. shale basins during this transition period. The steady increase of the water footprint of hydraulic fracturing with time implies that future unconventional oil and gas operations will require larger volumes of water for hydraulic fracturing, which will result in larger produced oil and gas wastewater volumes… Fracking is especially harmful to water supplies because the water is nearly impossible to treat after exposed to the chemicals, meaning it could be lost to the world permanently.(emphasis added)

Haaretz Warns American Jews of Trump’s Downfall – by Gilad Atzmon – http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/2018/8/26/haaretz-warns-american-jews-of-trumps-downfall – “Shalev dared to write the article every other political analyst has dreaded putting into words let alone text. ‘The name of the lawyer who implicated Donald Trump in the commission of federal crimes is Cohen. The name of the publisher who has agreed to tell investigators how he turned his newspaper into a clearinghouse for Cohen’s payments to women is Pecker. And the name of the accountant who has been granted immunity in order to testify about the role played by the Trump Organization in Cohen’s endeavors is Weisselberg. The common denominators of Cohen, Pecker and Weisselberg, beside their willingness to do whatever it takes for Trump in the past and their apparent willingness to inform on him now, is that all three are indisputably and recognizably Jewish.’.. If you wonder why no one in America was courageous enough to write about Trump being betrayed by his closest Jewish aids, Shalev’s answer is ‘anyone who does so risks being accused of generalizing, if not actively encouraging anti-Semitism.’ But this is just the first stage in this saga according to Haaretz’s correspondent. ‘Somewhere down the line. The racist, supremacist and neo-Nazi element of Trump’s base is already drooling at the impending opportunity of enlisting disgruntled rank and file Trump fans in a battle against the Jewish conspiracy aimed at their idol.’ ”

RT Says U.S. Prepares New Bombing Raid to Topple Assad in Syria – The U.S. Government is positioning weaponry for another bombing-raid to punish Syria for having Assad as its President – by Eric Zuesse – theduran.com/rt-says-u-s-prepares-new-bombing-raid-to-topple-assad-in-syria/ – “Actually, ever since 2012, the U.S. Government was actually employing Al Nusra, which was the name given to Al Qaeda’s Syrian branch. In fact, as an intelligence-analyst, Bill Roggio, reported and documented extensively throughout December 2012 (and I quoted from and linked-to extensively in an article five years later), the U.S. basically hired Nusra as its agency to train and lead the vast majority of the forces (all but the few who weren’t jihadists) that were trying to overthrow and replace Syria’s Government, back in 2012.”

Plans were now advanced, it said on Wednesday, for a further 1,000 “homes” in Jewish “settlements” – still the word we must use for such acts of land theft – and final approval had been given for another 382. Today, 600,000 Jewish Israelis live in about 140 colonies constructed on land belonging to another people, the Palestinians, either in the West Bank or east Jerusalem.”

QAnon believers have interpreted the clues, which they claim without evidence are coming from a highly placed source in the Trump administration, to mean that Trump and the military are engaged in a high-stakes shadow war against a supposed globalist pedophile cult. The conspiracy theory has caught on with Trump supporters, who have held up QAnon-related signs and wear QAnon shirts to the president’s rallies.”

You’ve got the ‘Dark Left’ and you’ve got the Conservative people, the Constitutionalists. In progressivism, one of its tenets is to change the Constitution, especially the First Amendment, and uproot traditional America. Whatever happens in November is going to intensify that. . . .

Wikipedia: a Web of Deception – by Helen Buyniski and Gary Null – https://prn.fm/wikipedia-web-deception/ – “Wikipedia wants us to believe the entries in its “encyclopedia” are truthful, fair, and balanced. However, a comprehensive analysis of its nutritional articles reveals a plethora of factual inconsistencies and a clear and present bias against the very idea of nutritional supplementation. Even though almost every nutrient page admits most Americans don’t consume the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of that particular vitamin or mineral, the pages’ editors still categorically discourage supplementation. Wikipedia’s main article on vitamins declares that supplements are “thought to be of little value in healthy people,”1 adding “no clear justification exists for recommending supplementation for preventing many diseases” with vitamin D, so much so that “further research of similar design is unneeded in these areas.”2 That certainly sounds final.”

MSM Finally Concedes Defeat On Yemen, Ceases Blackout Of Coverage – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/msm-finally-concedes-defeat-on-yemen-ceases-blackout-of-coverage-1b774266dbfe

“If things go as I am hoping they will go, we will see more and more such populist hijackings of dominant narratives (like the outing of the U.S/British/Saudi slaughter in Yemen) in the future, and ultimately a failure of the oligarchs to continue manufacturing consent for their omnicidal, ecocidal, Orwellian agendas. We will have to be aggressive, we will have to be creative, and we will have to be interesting enough to catch the eye of the casual citizenry, but the fact that trust in the mass media is at an all-time low and our ability to network and share information is at an all-time high combines with the fact that we have truth on our side to create some very exciting possibilities. I find this all very encouraging.” -Caitlin Johnstone

Russia records unidentified helicopters delivering weapons to Taliban, IS in Afghanistanhttp://tass.com/defense/1018368 – “Russia has recorded flights of unidentified helicopters delivering weapons to the Taliban (a movement outlawed in Russia) and the Islamic State (a terror group outlawed in Russia) units active in Afghanistan, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday… The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also said that the Afghan security agencies, as well as the Command of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, did not react to those helicopter flights. ‘In this regard, the question arises – who is behind these flights, who provides weapons to the terrorists…and why is it happening at all, given NATO’s actual control of Afghanistan’s airspace,’ ”

This situation comes shortly after Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch was forced off the funding platform Patreon following pressure from Mastercard… The Freedom Center is the next target of the SPLC, and they are using Mastercard and Visa again in their attempt to shut down conservative voices. In an email sent to supporters, Horowitz outlined how the SPLC had convinced Mastercard and Visa to block the Freedom Center from receiving payments and donations via credit card.” – Comment: So the SPLC is now an Official Functionary of the Intelligence/Banking/Media governance complex.

Details Of Ocasio-Cortez’s Ties To George Soros Revealedhttp://theduran.com/details-of-ocasio-cortezs-ties-to-george-soros-revealed/ – “But the link gets even stronger. Cenk Uygur, a member of the Soros funded media, founded one of the two political groups responsible for asking Ocasio-Cortez to run, Justice Democrats. The sole role of Justice Democrats was to get “Sanders-like” politicians elected to Congress. Thanks to the coverage of the Soros-linked digital media provided, Ocasio-Cortez was able to gain traction and defeat incumbent Joseph Crowley in the primary June 26. She is expected to win New York’s 14th congressional district handily, given the district’s Democratic history, the Daily Caller reported.”

Experts Say Eventually EVERYONE Will Get a Microchip Implant – by Daisy Luther – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/08/experts-say-eventually-everyone-will-get-a-microchip-implant.html – “Here’s how it could go down: Some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They’re lining up for it. It if isn’t available to them, they’re totally bummed out… Certain folks won’t be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here’s how this could go: ● Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own “convenience” leading the way; ● Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped – sort of like it’s nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days; ● Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law… The push may be soft at first. It may begin with peer pressure in the workplace.”

Persecution of Maria Butina takes a nasty turn– by Seraphim Hanisch – http://theduran.com/american-persecution-of-russian-maria-butina-takes-a-nasty-turn/ – “…the 29 year old Russian gun rights activist was moved to a different prison without warning. The Russian embassy claimed that her new conditions are bordering on torture. The report of her incarceration conditions is frustrating and saddening to read: The Russian embassy in the US, which has been closely following Butina’s case, says she was transferred from her Washington jail handcuffed, without warning or explanation for the move. Before the move, Butina was subjected to a “degrading full strip search,” and all her things were taken away, including books, shoes, towels and other hygiene items… Butina was moved to a prison in Alexandria, Virginia, ‘and spent the next 12 hours in a quarantine cell with no food and all the lights on, unable to sleep. She will now be kept in ‘administrative segregation,’ which means locked up in solitary confinement – conditions bordering on torture, the embassy says.”

Journalist Dies Just Weeks After Telling FBI & DHS That Bill Clinton Allegedly Raped Boyhttp://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread1215573/pg1 – More info on Jen Moore and how she was pursuing the case of Clinton’s ‘alleged’ victim. From a 2015 video of Jen Moore on CBC TV, it appears she was in her mid to late 30’s.

From the ATS Thread: posted on Aug, 14 2018 @ 09:06 PM – “This information from Moore is interesting: On July 2, Moore sent a text in which she said that top FBI officials are being blackmailed or may be involved in the trafficking allegations. …She noted that President Donald Trump has called on a unit of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to probe child sex trafficking claims. “That is why,” Moore wrote, “that Democrats and some Republicans are trying to disband” ICE. She wrote that an ICE officer told her that the unit investigates claims of child trafficking and ritual abuse, but the ‘FBI just tries to block them from getting to politicians, elite, etc.’ ”

Apple is the largest taxpayer in the county, paying $56 million in tax year 2017-18… ‘These are major cases, and publicly, they kind of go under the radar screen,’ Santa Clara County assessor Larry Stone said. Companies like Apple are ready to spend millions to get a profit from avoiding taxes, according to him.”

False Western Narratives have Deepened Russia-West Estrangement – by Tony Kevin – https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/08/17/false-western-narratives-have-deepened-russia-west-estrangement/ – “We have a situation now in which two major world governments, UK and Russia, both nuclear powers and permanent members of the UNSC, are upholding entirely opposed and contradictory narratives on two issues – the alleged Salisbury/Amesbury Novichuk poisonings, and the alleged nerve gas attacks by Assad Government forces on 7 April in Douma, Syria (on basis of false White Helmets-staged evidence) .

Iran’s Reply: No War and No Negotiations – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/irans-reply-no-war-and-no-negotiations/ – “Of course, issuing ALL IN CAPS threats just to be treated with utter contempt by the people you are trying to hard to bully and having your words become a cause of laughter on the Internet will only further enrage Trump and his supporters. When you are desperately trying to show the world how tough and scary you are, there is nothing more humiliating as being treated like some stupid kid. Therein also lies the biggest danger: such derision could force Trump and the Neocons who run him to do something desperate to prove to the word that their “red button” is still bigger than everybody else’s.”

The next time however there may not be an escape ramp. Having sworn after Douma to punish the ‘animal’ Asad more heavily next time, Western governments have painted themselves into a corner. The more Western government attempts to neutralise growing public concern over the credibility of the White Helmets are successful, the more likely it is that the world will see a fresh Syria crisis which will make Douma look paltry.”

However, these efforts have proven woefully insufficient in light of ongoing scandals, including but not limited to the recent Oxfam debacle, the Zoe’s Ark scandal, allegations of horrific sexual abuse in the Central African Republic by UN forces, and the Laura Silsby incident. All of these cases (and many others) occurred after the partial publication of the UNHCR report, pointing to one unsavory conclusion: Aid work is not a vehicle of charity, but is, in a very real sense, a cover for atrocity. It is a weapon, a blunt instrument of power that is wielded to exploit the most vulnerable populations in crisis around the world. We can now state that sentiment as fact, not opinion.”

For the Week of 8/6/18:

Major Scoop! I was just on Dane Wigington’s Geoengineering Watch site on his page on Engineered Droughts – https://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/category/drought-2/ – I was reading some of his ideas about what he sees as false claims by people who have been presenting what they think is evidence that some of the wild fires have been caused by energy weapons (DEW’s), and he had a copy of the picture that don posted yesterday, beneath Dane’s claim that he had the original photo without the beam in it, and that the beam had been photoshopped in by hoaxers.

I saved that jpg with both images on it, intending to share it with this GMA.Media forum, but when I opened it in my graphics software, I first noticed that the color on the version with the beam in it is distinctly more vibrant with more contrast, which should not be possible if it were photoshopped. Then I noticed that in the version without the beam, in the area where the beam is showing in the other version, there seems to be a somewhat blurry streak where the beam would be. I then examined both versions more closely and found that the detail is much better in the one with the beam, and that there are digital artifacts in the sky of the version without the beam above the peak where the beam is in the other version, which has no digital artifacts.

So my conclusion is that the beam was photoshopped out of the version without the beam, and that this was then presented by Wigington as evidence that the DEW theory is supposedly the product of “hoaxers.” When the truth is that Wigington himself, or as I surmise, possible intelligence assets he may work with, did the photo-alteration work as an attempt to distort the facts around these fires. There is much other reasoning in Dane’s piece on this page that I think is suspect and may be there to deny evidence and confuse people. I will include the photo in question below, as well as a blow up of the area above the mountain where the beam emerges, where you can see the lack of detail and digital artifacts in the image with no beam.

Addendum: About two years ago, Dane stopped approving comments I put up on Geoengineering Watch. I think I’m simply banned there now. This is after I had consulted with him over the phone about how to talk about Geoengineering in radio interviews and had met him in person and promoted videos of his lectures heavily. Cynthia and I also started a group in Santa Cruz to bring Geoengineering to the Board of Supervisors and Santa Cruz County, which he briefly let us promote on his site. In my comments I was asking specific questions about hard data and presenting links. Here are a couple of quotes from his Engineered Droughts page: “Many of the sites and sources pushing the ” laser beams / directed energy beams” created the fires” false narrative are also propagating the “Flat Earth” and “global warming is a hoax” false and highly discrediting narratives.” (This one makes use of the logical fallacy of false equivalence or guilt by association between the Flat Earth and questioning the global warming hypothesis, not to mention dismisses the DEW observations point blank as “false narratives”); “In the case of the “global warming is a hoax” disinformation, this is in fact exactly the false narrative that the power structure and the geoengineers want. Why would anyone who claims to be fighting climate engineering / geoengineering push this kind of disinformation? (no evidence provided to support the assertions that a) questioning global warming is a false narrative andb) it’s the exact idea the the “power structure and geoengineers want – Also, he’s a smart guy, and implies that people “pushing” the idea that the planet is not warming the ways it’s been predicted have ulterior motives when there’s a perfectly rational explanation in the possibility that Geoengineering is being used to support the idea that “carbon” technology must be taken away from them mass of humanity).

Dane doesn’t seem to allow any discussion of Peter Kirby’s Chemtrails Exposed, which is an incredible effort by Peter, working alone without many resources, containing unique research that demonstrates convincingly that the security state made a major commitment (Kirby calls it The New Manhattan Project) to attaining total control over the weather worldwide after WWII. He shows the people, the projects, and political language advocating both the attainment and the use of these technologies. Wigington doesn’t allow discussion of NASA’s recurrent cooking of weather statistics, discussion of the role of Solar radiation or the Sun’s magnetic field, the solar cycle, solar magnetic field research, and, I’m sure much more. He constantly puts up NASA weather maps that use dramatic and inaccurate artwork to essentially say the sky is falling. Speaking of which, for a couple of years he promoted the “work” of Guy McPherson, though he quibbled with him about details. The was till McPherson had a debate of sorts with Dane and then demanded the SD card from the camera after taping it, and basically left the rails with his (well financed, it seemed) doomsday assertions. Dane was an engineer with Bechtel, when he left is unclear. He says that he discovered what he won’t allow anyone to call chemtrails because of diminishing current from his off-the-grid solar home near Lake Shasta (where he just did a info gatekeeper video in the Redding neighborhoods on the Carr fire, BTW). I saw a video of a lecture by him a couple of years ago where someone asked him about his relationship with Bechtel in a Q&A and Dane seriously lost it, attacking the questioner as a troll, etc.

I think that he’s deliberately working to keep people both upset and confused, and to keep them from connecting important dots. Three years ago he was saying that we’d be lost in a vicious cycle of catastrophic heat by now. He doesn’t seem to be making predictions now, but he says that no one understands how bad it is and will get very soon. He seems to represent that hot weather, or the loss of moisture due to the particulates, is what’s causing the fires worldwide. Bottom line is that he won’t discuss real science if it conflicts with the narrative he wants to maintain. I do very much suspect that he’s a witting agent of the control matrix. He has kids, he has property, who knows what might be in his closet?

Addendum 2 – Regarding the recent California fires: There are also many eye witness accounts both of beams (blue, green and white, which is likely an invisible infrared laser which only shows up because of smoke or dust), and of strange winds coming up and firestorms breaking out spontaneously. Also, people sensing powerful electric fields before events. In the Santa Barbara fires, I saw video of a home on a cliff near the ocean with a tile roof and no fires nearby (suburban neighborhood) where a fire broke out in the middle of the house near an inside gable. Plus, there’s this:

Raging Inferno CHOPS a House?? 7/31/18https://youtu.be/o9Eg6oTab2s . I also saw photos of 2 cars in the Santa Rosa fires that were both partially torched with a clear line where the heat had ended leaving the rest of the cars looking like new. I think I have those saved (somewhere…). There was a car in Santa Rosa out by itself on a road, completely torched, melted alloy wheels, a halo of heat damage on the pavement, but the rest of the road, grass bushes and trees nearby untouched. Fires in Napa destroyed fields and burned right up to the fences of vinyards, where they stopped, leaving apparent dry fuel untouched. Dane Wigington says that the houses just burn easier than shrubbery and trees, but there are houses burned down to a few inches of ash, with everything including appliances, tubs and sinks, and even granite counter tops turned to dust, while apparently dry bushes right by the houses, with thin branches, are fine and plastic trashcans aren’t even melted. This all looked more extreme in Santa Rosa and Napa than what’s happening now, so I think who ever is doing this is tuning their technology to seem more plausible. Still though, I don’t think that cars generally burn so hot that the entire body is toasted, glass is gone (melted or ?), tires gone, and alloy wheels are running out onto the street like water. Dane Wigington is disputing this adamantly. I looked at a lot of photos of car fires after Santa Rosa, and almost always some paint is left, tires are flat but still there, and wheels fine. OK, big rant, sorry, but on another subject I’ll leave you with 3 photos from the Deepwater Horizon disaster: two pictures of a hole burned into the deck of the helipad (helicopter taken out?) and a photo taken by fishermen a couple of miles away showing a beam coming down from above.

Northern California Is Burning; What’s Next For That Area? – by Catherine Frompovich – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/08/northern-california-is-burning-whats-next-for-that-area.html – “What do you think surveillance microwave technology everyone has become addicted to really is about? Controlled lifestyles!.. It’s later than you think! Are you possibly thinking it will not happen in the USA? Think again!

It started out as “political correctness” which now has become political anarchy, in many people’s opinion… What do you think?”

Latest Sanctions Against Russia Show Trump Not in Control of His Administration – Forget about running the Empire or the American state. Trump isn’t even in control of his team – by F. Michael Maloof – https://russia-insider.com/en/latest-sanctions-against-russia-show-trump-not-control-his-administration/ri24424 – “With even further sanctions against Russia in the recently passed Defense Department Authorization Bill about to go into effect, it is becoming apparent that the allegations against Russia are politically-motivated, false flag allegations to be used as an excuse for a greater geostrategic reason — to contain Russia just as the Trump administration is increasingly finding its US-led unilateral world order being challenged more than ever.”

How Big Technology Companies Control the Minds of the Masses Through Smart Phone Addiction – by John P. Thomas – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/how-big-technology-companies-control-the-minds-of-the-masses-through-smart-phone-addiction/ – “Tristan Harris, a former executive at Google, and the co-founder & executive director of the Center for Humane Technology, describes the bigger picture of how smartphones can take control over our time and our lives. He stated: ‘I want to tell you why the future of technology is going in a very specific direction… That direction is guided by one goal which is that everyone who succeeds needs your attention… If you are Facebook or YouTube or Snapchat you need people’s attention. You don’t just need a little bit, but because of the business model of advertising you need as much as possible, because more attention equals more money… I want you to imagine walking into a room – a control room – with a hundred people hunched over at desks with little dials… And that control room will shape the thought[s] and feelings of a billion people… This might sound like science fiction, but this actually exists right now today… I know, because I used to be in one of those control rooms. I was design ethicist at Google where I studied how you ethically steer people’s thoughts… We don’t talk about how a handful of people working at a handful of technology companies – through their choices – will steer what a billion people are thinking today… When you pull out your phone – and they designed how this works – and [you see] what is on the feed – it’s scheduling little blocks of time in our minds… If you see a notification – it schedules you to have thoughts that maybe you didn’t intend to have. If you swipe over that notification – it schedules you into spending a little bit of time getting sucked into something that maybe you didn’t intend to get sucked into.’ ” (emphasis added)

From 2016: CLAIM: Cell towers across the USA are broadcasting brain resonance frequencies to disrupt human minds, says former DARPA scientist – by David Gutierrez – https://www.naturalnews.com/053684_RF_radiation_cell_phone_towers_DARPA_scientist.html – ” ‘I seem to have stumbled across an advanced technology that I would classify as synthetic telepathy,’ he wrote in one such missive. ‘It clearly uses the cellular towers to transmit illegal signals. It sounds unbelievable but it is actual technology being used on civilians of the US.’.. ‘My basic research does indicate that such technology can exist and dates back to the V2K (P300) mind wave technology of the 1970s. This does appear to be a much more advanced version that allows open communication of human mind to mind bridges.’.. According to Batcho, the internal radiofrequency (RF) generated by the electrical impulses of the human brain is 450 MHz, and this is why Ham radio operators are not allowed to transmit between 400 and 700MHz. Although he says that cellular phones transmit at 853 MHz, he still calls for the installation of filters to prevent phones and towers from transmitting in the 400 to 700 MHz range… ‘The verified measurement and existence of these RF band transmissions constitutes a terrorist act,’ he writes.”

5G phased array antennas, planned to be installed every few hundred yards across the U.S., are capable of targeting microwave beams at essentially any frequency that could be interpreted as sound by your brain. – “Inventors: Loos; Hendricus G. (Laguna Beach, CA)Family ID:25505170Appl. No.:08/961,907 Filed:October 31, 1997… The patent goes on to further describe the workings of this acoustic technology: Experiments have shown that atmospheric acoustic stimulation of deeply subliminal intensity can excite in a human subject the sensory resonances near 1/2 Hz and 2.5 Hz. The 1/2 Hz resonance is characterized by ptosis of the eyelids, relaxation, drowsiness, a tonic smile, tenseness, or sexual excitement, depending on the precise acoustic frequency near 1/2 Hz that is used. The observable effects of the 2.5 Hz resonance include a slowing of certain cortical functions, sleepiness, and, after long exposure, dizziness and disorientation.” – (underlining added)

WikiLeaks : Saudi & Qatari governments funded and gave logistical support to ISIS confirms email from Hillary Clintonhttps://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/55380 – “While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure. By the same token, the threat of similar, realistic U.S. operations will serve to assist moderate (sic) forces in Libya, Lebanon, and even Jordan, where insurgents are increasingly fascinated by the ISIL success in Iraq.” (emphasis added)

About the Alex Jones & Infowars ban by US corporate giants – by The Saker – https://thesaker.is/about-the-alex-jones-infowars-ban-by-the-us-corporate-giants/

– ” Exactly as I have been warning in my “First they came for the Nazis and pedophiles” article last year, those who hate freedom in all its forms always begin by censoring what I call a “consensus villain“: Nazis, racist nutcases, White/European supremacists, pedophiles, etc. This way, if you speak up, you are immediately guilty by association. The problem with that is simply that when the state or the corporations (they are really one and the same, something libertarians always fail to understand) crack down on “consensus villains” they are developing a tool which they can then turn against anybody they want… What we are witnessing is a major and long-time effort to re-take control of the only media which the rulers of the AngloZionist empire do not currently control. Personally, I am very pessimistic due to the sheep-like mentality of most of the western public who neither understands nor cares about these issues. And, just to make things worse, neither Russia, nor China nor Iran are any better in terms of understanding and upholding Internet freedoms.”

A spokesman said a strong international response sends an “unequivocal message” to Russia that its “provocative, reckless behavior” will not go unchallenged… The Russian Embassy in Washington denounced the new sanctions, which it called “draconian,” and called allegations that Moscow poisoned Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia “far-fetched.”.. In a statement issued late on August 8, the embassy said neither Washington nor London has produced evidence supporting their allegations, but the U.S. State Department has told the embassy that it has enough “classified” evidence to conclude ‘Russia is to blame.’ ” – Comment: Just because a Neo-Conservative/Neo-Liberal cabal are driving events on the surface of public perception and threatening the world with their warlike mindset does not make them enemies.

Chinese Government Forces Popular Fiction Writers to Publish Red Propaganda – by Kerry Lear – http://punchingbagpost.com/chinese-government-forces-popular-fiction-writers-to-publish-red-propaganda/ – “In a recent interview with Global Times, China’s state newspaper, the famed fantasy writer He Changzai explained his mysterious switch from fantasy to writing “red stories.”.. ‘In the process of writing other novels, I found that when it comes to the historical changes and achievement of reform and opening up, there is no work that deeply reflects the times,’ said Changzai… He is now focusing on a novel ‘set against 40 years of reform and opening-up in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, a mainstream subject usually chosen by traditional writers.’.. ‘Internet writers in China are known as a group for making up stories detached from reality with sheer imagination,’ writes Global Times. ‘But more and more of them, who mostly have built their reputations on major literature websites in China, are dropping mythological figures and stereotyped historical plots and throwing themselves into the creation of works that demonstrate the country’s political and economic achievements.’ ” (emphasis added)

Who would threaten an official’s children in order to advance a pervasively evil military intervention based on lies? Only an actual, literal psychopath. Someone with no conscience, no morals, no empathy, no humanity… Bolton still maintains that the disastrous and unforgivable Iraq invasion was a great idea and a resounding success. And he’s not lying. To him, it was a resounding success, because his goal was death and destruction. He is a psychopath and a lover of death. This is who is guiding this administration’s approach to Iran.”

Yet ISIS was admittedly created by the US and its partners in the region in the first place. It was a 2012 leaked Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) memo that revealed: ‘If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).’.. The DIA memo would also explicitly explain who these “supporting powers” are: ‘The West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support the opposition; while Russia, China, and Iran support the regime.’ ”

(Source – PDF)Even though the above document is 121 pages long, I heartily recommend anyone who is trying to keep an AMI SM off their utility service, to study it; save it in your computer files; and also print a copy, so if it’s taken off the Internet, you still have it.”

After all, you could easily click your mouse right now to CNBC, CNN, or The New York Times for conventional news and opinion… The fact that you have the slightest ability to bypass big media’s biased filters makes them and their ideological allies furious… Some members of Congress who clearly don’t like the spirit of the First Amendment are working with Internet gatekeepers at Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Apple (now a trillion-dollar corporation) to try to prevent you from accessing information they haven’t approved.”

When I learned that Facebook, YouTube, Apple, Spotify, Pinterest and others had colluded to take down content from Alex Jones all on the same day, I knew exactly what was happening. They timed their attack so that it would hit the press at the beginning of the weekly news cycle on Monday so that their purge would have maximum societal impact. And the fact that there was such overt collusion was obviously meant to send a message. We were supposed to understand that if they can do this to Alex Jones, they can do it to any of us, and so we better shut up and fall in line. I can’t even begin to tell you how sick I feel right now. The big tech giants have made it abundantly clear how they feel about all of us, and there is no future for alternative points of view on any of their platforms.”

Various channels with well over 5 million subscriptions, several billions of views and untold petabytes of content have been deleted like so much spam… Alex Jones has been doing the same thing every day for well over a decade but suddenly, the major tech monopolies all decided that he violates their “community guidelines.” If this isn’t collusion, what is? As Paul Joseph Watson tweeted, ‘This isn’t enforcement of terms of services, it’s election meddling.’ ”

Did DARPA Just Develop Autonomous Drones To Hunt Humans? – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-08-05/did-darpa-just-develop-autonomous-drones-hunt-humans – “While DARPA’s FLA program has yet to mount a directed energy weapon with enough kilowatts to blast a human into smithereens, it seems like the agency responsible for emerging technologies for use by the military has entered into Phase two flight tests — demonstrating advanced algorithms in drones could autonomously perform tasks dangerous for humans — such as pre-mission reconnaissance on the modern battlefield in a hostile urban setting… So, yes, this confirms DARPA is developing human-hunting drones, however, it is more on a reconnaissance basis, rather than human-killing drones in Oblivion.”

Trump has already accused Mueller of interference in the electoral process, writing on Twitter last month that the “13 Angry Democrats”—his favored and misplaced sobriquet for Mueller’s team—“will be MEDDLING with the midterm elections.” With the midterm elections set for November 6, Mueller will be under extraordinary pressure to deliver a timely report—Republicans have already suggested they are losing patience with the 13-month-long investigation—while not appearing to be timing the delivery of the report, itself.”

Indeed, the clout of this group and their grip on power is arguably as strong as ever. Not only did they continue to shape the U.S. foreign policy establishment, but they have managed to alter what constitutes acceptable public and media discourse within the world’s remaining superpower. The trajectory of neocon influence in Washington is explored in depth in the documentary series, A Very Heavy Agenda, by independent journalist and film-maker Robbie Martin.”

This DEW and arson attack on Greece, then, appears to be an act of sheer intimidation so that the government in Athens does not join Italy in rebelling against the European Union. Even more significant is the necessity of the EU keeping Greece in line regarding immigration.

Greeks are now protesting the influx of migrants like never before: Violence flares at Greek island protest over migrants…”

Literally Official State Propaganda: US Base in Southern Syria Sends ‘Signal’ to Iran – by Carla Babb – https://www.voanews.com/a/us-base-in-southern-syria-sends-signal-to-iran/4499431.html – “While the military is not directly focused on Iran in Syria, it can still indirectly impede Iran’s “destabilizing acts” in the country, according to CENTCOM commander U.S. Army Gen. Joseph Votel… ‘There are opportunities for us to indirectly influence their [Iran’s] activities by our presence, by the pursuit of our ongoing operations, that I think disrupt and make it difficult for them to pursue their unilateral objectives,’ Votel told reporters during a July 19 briefing.” – Comment: Stay The Course.

City of Lexington (Kentucky) Wants to Keep Fighting Me Over Surveillance Documents – by Michael Maharrey – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/city-of-lexington-wants-to-keep-fighting-me-over-surveillance-documents.html – “(Judge) Reynolds said the city did not meet its burden of proof and ‘failed to assert an applicable provision of the KRS or other binding precedent which would allow the denial of the information requested by Maharrey.’.. The (Lexington Fayette Urban County Government) asked for reconsideration and entered a motion to alter, amend or vacate the judgment. After a hearing on June 22, Reynolds overruled the city’s motion and once again ordered the Lexington Police Department to turn over documents related to the cameras… Instead of ending the fight and complying with the judge’s order, the city filed a notice of appeal on July 23. The case will now move to the Kentucky Court of Appeals… This is actually part of a broader movement of privacy localism that is taking on the surveillance state. The TAC has been involved in the Community Control Over Police Surveillance (CCOPS) initiative from the beginning and helped draft model legislation for a local surveillance ordinance that creates some level of transparency and oversight over local surveillance programs… Here’s my challenge to you. Take what I’ve done and build on it. Get involved in your local community. Fight. If you don’t know how, we’ve got some resources to help. I put together a series of short podcasts called Activism 101. They offer simple step-by-step advice for starting activism in your own town. You can check out that series HERE.”

Silver Threads among the Gold: What the Tea Leaves Seem to Be Telling Us – by David Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/silver-threads-among-the-gold-what-the-tea-leaves-seem-to-be-telling-us.html – “The ongoing July silver (and gold) slam has a 2008 feel about it. Important data point elements are different, but there’s an air of panic on the part of physical precious metals’ owners… ‘Major trend lines’ being broken to the downside; physical metals’ buying (in the U.S. off significantly so far on the year; (some) long-term silver holders giving up the ghost and selling their metal below spot… About the only thing we have yet to see – on a large scale – is “paper metal” being offered at a price well below what a customer would actually pay for the physical… In late 2008, while silver was being quoted in the markets at $9.50/ounce, you simply could not find it in “real life” for much less than $12 the ounce.”

New Jersey’s Eye-opening Autism Facts Everyone Really Must Know – by Catherine Frompovich – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/new-jerseys-eye-opening-autism-facts-everyone-really-must-know.html – “There are facts and, then, there are factoids, which are a brief or trivial item of news or information; an assumption or speculation that is reported and repeated so often that it becomes accepted as fact [online Dictionary], which can apply, in my opinion, to the pseudoscience published by the HHS, CDC, FDA and the mainstream, lamestream media regarding vaccines and vaccinations… In all the years I have been researching vaccine information—since the 1980s when doctors I was working with started seeing Moms come to them and say, ‘My kid got a vaccine and hasn’t been the same since”—the only conclusion I’ve been able to come to is vested interests use factoids, which are statements repeated so often, they became accepted as facts!’.. Right off the bat, Louise states, “One in 22 boys has autism, NJ leads health crisis.” However, the CDC announced that only one in 68 U.S. children has Autism! That’s up 20% in two years and up 200% or triple since 2000! Back in the late 1970s, the rate was one in 10,000 to 15,000. What’s happened?.. ‘Autism is also a financial impossibility for our society. There isn’t enough institutional infrastructure to educate the growing numbers of children with autism and house the adults they are becoming. Young adults with autism are increasingly sent to nursing homes because there’s nowhere else to go.’(the last emphasis added)

Russia has proposed the insane notion of fining social media companies. Under the new legislation, websites would be responsible for deleting inaccurate user comments, The New York Times reported… If passed in Russian parliament, the new law would require websites with more than 100,000 daily visitors and a comment feature to remove inaccurate information posted by users within 24 hours of the post. If websites fail to comply, the sites could face a fine of up to 50 million rubles or ($793,000).”

Taxpayers to Be Held Liable After Cops Mistake Vitamins for Opioids and Jail Innocent Mom for (5) Months – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/taxpayers-to-be-held-liable-after-cops-mistake-vitamins-for-opioids-and-jail-innocent-mom-for-months.html – “Three years ago, Rebecca’s car ran out of gas and she was stranded on the side of the road. When an officer pulled up behind her she was hoping that she would get some help. However, instead, she was wrongfully accused of a crime, kidnapped, and thrown in a cage away from her family for five months… “My kids were devastated. I was away for five months. I cried constantly,” Shaw told FOX 13 News… ‘My heart just sank. I said, ‘That’s wrong!’ It felt like my whole life was over. It was terrible,’ she said… Rebecca was arrested and charged with trafficking oxycodone, and since she was unable to pay the $5,000 bond she was forced to sit in jail for months… ‘My kids were devastated. I was away for five months. I cried constantly. It was scary being in there and having a public defender that didn’t believe me,’ Rebecca said… After Rebecca’s husband was able to raise the funds to bail her out, she had to wait another seven months for the official test results to come back from the lab, which ultimately determined that the pills were vitamins and not oxycodone.”

In California — at least in the counties that I represent — they do not use an electronic system,’ he continued… ‘I think anybody that does that, and that’s communicating over the web, it’s going to be a challenge. So you have to make sure that you limit that as much as possible, and we need a paper trail so that you can go back in case you have to do a manual recount,’ he said.”

Moscow thanks IDF for hitting launcher in Syria, says IS tried to provoke Israel – Russia alleges 2 rockets said to land in Sea of Galilee Wednesday were deliberately fired by Islamic State in bid to draw Israel into conflict; Israeli divers search for debris – by Stuart Winer and TOI staff – https://www.timesofisrael.com/moscow-thanks-idf-for-destroying-islamic-state-rocket-launcher-in-syria/ – “While Israel’s assessment was that the rockets were a case of errant fire in the conflict between Assad regime forces and Islamic State jihadists, Moscow contended that the rockets were fired deliberately by Islamic State at Israel in a bid to draw the Jewish state into the conflict, and have Israel open fire on Syrian regime targets… According to the Russian ministry, the IDF strike that hit the launcher Wednesday apparently also killed a number of IS fighters.” – Note: Another story in the Times of Israel reported that the IDF also assessed the attack as an attempt by IS to draw the IDF into attacking the Syrian Army.

From the Rust-Never-Sleeps Desk: The United States and France Take Coordinated Action on Global Procurement Network for Syria’s Chemical Weapons Program – https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm443 – “Syria’s horrific use of chemical weapons, including attacks against innocent women and children, remains deeply embedded in our minds. Today, we are continuing our campaign to stop the Assad regime’s ruthless attacks by targeting the procurement networks that have supported its chemical weapons program. Along with Sunday’s actions by the French, and together with our law enforcement partners, today’s actions reinforce our ongoing international efforts with our allies to halt these atrocities,” said Sigal Mandelker, Treasury’s Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. “We remain firm in our resolve to counter Syria’s horrific use of chemical weapons, and will continue to take aggressive action against those who supply the SSRC and enhance Syria’s capacity to produce and use chemical weapons.” (emphasis added) – Note: I hope you get it that we need to stop Syria’s horrific use of chemical weapons. Because it’s horrific.

Messitte in Greenbelt, Md., will allow the plaintiffs in the case — the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia — to proceed with their case, which says Trump has violated the Constitution’s little-used emoluments clause… The plaintiffs now want to interview Trump Organization employees and search company records to determine which foreign countries have spent money at Trump’s hotel in downtown Washington.” (emphasis added) – Comment: Seriously? Maryland and the Dept. of Just-Us are going after Trump because foreign officials stay at his hotel in Washington D.C.? Kind of seems like a stretch…

BRICS and the Fiction of “De-Dollarization” – by Prof. Michel Chossudovsky – https://www.globalresearch.ca/brics-and-the-fiction-of-de-dollarization-2/5441301 – “India, South Africa and Brazil have decided not to go along with a multiple currency arrangement, which would have allowed for the development of bilateral trade and investment activities between BRICs countries, operating outside the realm of dollar denominated credit. In fact they did not have the choice of making this decision in view of the strict loan conditionalities imposed by the IMF… Heavily indebted under the brunt of their external creditors, all three countries are faithful pupils of the IMF-World Bank. The central bank of these countries is controlled by Wall Street and the IMF. For them to enter into a “non-dollar” or an “anti-dollar” development banking arrangement with multiple currencies, would have required prior approval of the IMF.”

Backlash Against “War on Cash” Reaches Washington & China – by Don Quijones – https://wolfstreet.com/2018/07/21/backlash-against-war-on-cash-reaches-washington-china/ – “Another important institutional body that has leaped to the defense of physical money is the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), which last Friday announced that all businesses that are not e-commerce must resume accepting cash by mid August or risk being investigated. In a statement the central bank also warned businesses and individuals not to hype up the “cashless” idea when promoting non-cash payment… Given that China is the world’s largest mobile payment market, with a record 81 trillion yuan (US$12.8 trillion) in mobile payments last year, the PBOC’s move to defend cash is significant. China was widely expected to be the first major nation to move towards a completely cashless society.”

Russia Says Its New Plane Can Kill Satellites – by Michael Peck – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/russia-says-its-new-plane-can-kill-satellites/ri24164 – “If Russia can in fact disable the electronics on American satellites, and the NPR does reflect U.S. policy, then turning off a satellite could be construed as an act of war sufficient to justify a nuclear response. Whether a U.S. president would in fact risk thermonuclear war over a disabled satellite is another matter. Nonetheless, Russia’s new toy could have dangerous implications.”

In other words, the technology would let people control, feel and interact with a remote machine as though it were a part of their own body.”

Israel Passes Controversial Jewish Nation-state Bill After Stormy Debate – by Jonathan Lis and Noa Landau – https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/israel-passes-controversial-nation-state-bill-1.6291048 – “The nation-state law establishes as a basic law, or quasi-constitutional law, a set of values, some of which already appear in existing laws. The law stipulates that Israel is the Jewish nation’s historic homeland and that this nation has the singular right to national self-determination in it. The law anchors the flag, menorah, “Hatikva” anthem, Hebrew calendar, Independence Day and Jewish holidays as national symbols… The law states that the “whole and united” Jerusalem is the state’s capital, which appears today in Basic Law: Jerusalem. The nation-state law further grants the status of an official language only to Hebrew.”

They are opening up a backchannel with the public, bypassing the compromised mass media, to reach the “anons” and “autists” who hang out on 8chan. There are good operational reasons for choosing this exotic social media platform.”

From the Technocratic-Morass Desk: The political representation of the European people – by Etienne Balibar – https://www.opendemocracy.net/can-europe-make-it/etienne-balibar/political-representation-of-european-people – “EB: Frankly, I find it astonishing that no debate on the crisis besetting European construction is taking place in the European Parliament. Maybe it would be a cacophony, speeches with fascist leanings would be delivered by populist forces, some of which are already in power or about to enter government. But we can’t ignore the fact that the crisis of the system is also its lack of democracy. The more profound it gets, the more technocrats will argue that the population should not have its say. They fear that their capacity for action will be paralysed.”

Mueller indicted 13 Russians linked to the “troll farm” Internet Research Agency in February, hoping that they wouldn’t bother to appear in court, not being bound by US law or having anything to gain by participating in his show trial. But a few sent their lawyers and demanded discovery, which would have forced Mueller to reveal the evidence he had against them. Finding his own indictments riddled with errors – one of the companies named didn’t even exist at the time of the election – Mueller quietly backpedaled. Score one for the Russians.”

Beheadings Are Now Occurring: UN Sponsored Mexican Cartel Justice Comes to America – by Dave Hodges – http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/beheadings-are-now-occurring-un-sponsored-mexican-cartel-justice-comes-to-america/ – “Last night, this same Border Patrol Agent called me at the number on my business card. He stated that he had been reading my articles and that he felt that I was expressing a deep understating the problem. However, he unequivocally stated my knowledge of UN involvement on the border was significantly outdated and understated. He stated ‘the UN is already here and he has seen clear evidence that they are calling the shots on the border’… This agent claims that he has encountered UN personnel at the detention facilities that he and fellow agents take the illegal immigrants to, such as MS-13, after arresting them. I asked him how he knew there were UN representatives at the border, he said he saw the proof in the sign-in sheets at the detention centers. Also, he noted that members of the World Health Organization have been in attendance as well. So, Dr. Jane Orient’s fears of a pandemic invasion may indeed be well-founded.”

BECAUSE… She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE… That’s why… Barsoomian’s loyalties are tainted… How could this not have influenced Rosenstein?.. This clearly violates the appearance of impropriety attorney’s rules?.. Both owe their careers as US attorneys to Muller, Obama, Bush, and the Clintons… Impartiality? That’s impossible… Rod Rosenstein has no business involving himself in the Hillary Clinton-DNC funded Steel dossier, and the ongoing Russia investigation… Much less the selection of his mentor and his wife’s mentor Robert Muller as Special Counsel.”

Liberals increasingly living in cesspools of human filth and raw sewage, all while being preoccupied with “climate change” instead of cleaning up their own streets – by Ethan Huff – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-07-15-liberals-increasingly-living-in-cesspools-of-human-filth-and-raw-sewage.html – ” One of the most “progressive” cities in the country – a well-known hotbed of liberalism, replete with aggressive activism for things like LGBT rights and government action on “climate change” – has become so filthy and disgusting due to its “anything goes” policies that a major medical convention has decided to stop holding its events there… The city in question is San Francisco.”

In fact, just this past weekend, Michael Barone of the New York Post made the argument that Obama’s spying scandal has reached a point where it is now starting to resemble Watergate… ‘The crime at the root of Watergate was an attempt at surveillance of the DNC after George McGovern seemed about to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, just as the government misconduct in Russiagate was an attempt at surveillance of the Republican Party’s national campaign after Trump clinched its nomination,’ Barone wrote.”

No 5th Column in the Kremlin? Think Again! – by The Saker – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/no-5th-column-kremlin-think-again/ri23995 – “First, I want to begin by sharing with you a short video translated by the Saker Community of one of the most astute Russian analysts, Ruslan Ostashko, who wonders how it is that a rabidly pro-western and vociferously anti-Putin radio station named “Ekho Moskvy” manages not only to elude normal Russian legislation, but even gets money from the gas giant Gazprom, which is majority-owned by the Russian state. Ekho Moskvy is also so pro-Israeli that it has earned the nickname “Ekho Matsy” (Ekho Moskvy means “Echo of Moscow” whereas “Ekho Matsy” means “Echo of the Matzo”). Needless to say, that radio has the unwavering and total support of the US Embassy… Putin is an exceedingly patient man and, at least so far, he won most, if not all, of his battles. I don’t believe that anybody can predict for sure how things will play out, but what is certain is that trying to understand Russia without being aware of the internal conflicts and the interests groups fighting for power is futile. In her 1000 year long history, internal enemies have always been far more dangerous for Russia than external ones. This is unlikely to change in the future.”

Trump Should Fire Rosenstein Immediately – by Paul Craig Roberts – https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/07/13/trump-should-fire-rosenstein-immediately/ – “If you read the indictment, you will see that it consists of nothing but improbable accusations. There is no way on earth that the US Justice (sic) Department would be able to acquire the information in this fictional story that Rosenstein has presented. Moreover, there is no sign whatsoever of any evidence in the indictment. Rosenstein knows that he needs no evidence, because the accused will never be brought to trial. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/13/rosenstein-says-12-russian-intel-officers-indicted-in-special-counsels-probe.html.”

America – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/07/13/america/ – “In America they build flying war robots, but you can’t drink the water. America is where the empire keeps its billionaires and bombs… Giant wars left Europe a mess many years ago, so America rose to the top. Now it’s where many rich and powerful influencers centralize their operations. America is the cattle prod used to compel the world to march along with the interests of western aristocrats. Governments which comply are rewarded with military “protection”, while noncompliant governments are sanctioned and bombed. The Mafia does this also.” – Comment: IMO Caitlin is the best all-around writer on the Internet these days.

Lawyer: Monsanto Bullied Scientists And Hid Weedkiller’s Cancer Risks – by Mac Slavo – http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/lawyer-monsanto-bullied-scientists-and-hid-weedkillers-cancer-risks_07102018 – “Monsanto has specifically gone out of its way to bully … and to fight independent researchers,” said the attorney Brent Wisner, who presented internal Monsanto emails that he said showed how the agrochemical company rejected critical research and expert warnings over the years while pursuing and helping to write favorable analyses of their products. “They fought science,” added Wisner, who is representing Dwayne Johnson. Johnson alleges Monsanto is to blame for the cancer that has been aggressively spreading throughout his entire body.”

Court Gives Clearance for TSA to Molest and Falsely Arrest Air Travelers – by MassPrivateI – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/court-gives-clearance-tsa-molest-and-falsely-arrest-air-travelers.html – “By granting DHS employees immunity the Justice Department has put them effectively above the law… The Appeals Court majority claimed to be “sympathetic” to American’s civil rights: ‘The majority said it was “sympathetic” to concerns that its decision would leave fliers with “very limited legal redress” for alleged mistreatment by aggressive or overzealous screeners, which adds to the ordinary stresses of air travel.’.. What this means is that Americans will no longer see headlines like these: ● TSA Agent Arrested for Sexually Molesting South Korean Woman at NYC’s LaGuardia Airport , ● TSA agent captured allegedly groping travelers he found attractive , ● TSA has no excuse to continue the groping – (emphasis added)

Thinking Outside the Quantum Box – by Bernardo Kastrup – http://noetic.org/blog/communications-team/thinking-outside-quantum – “The problem, of course, is that the hypothesis of a universe whose very existence depends on our minds contradicts mainstream scientific intuitions. So physicists scramble to interpret quantum theory in a way that makes room for a mind-independent reality. A popular way to do this entails postulating imagined, empirically unverifiable, theoretical entities defined as observer-independent. Naturally, this goes beyond mere interpretation; it adds redundant baggage to quantum theory, in the sense that the theory needs none of this stuff to successfully predict what it predicts.” Note: Quantum theory does not say that the existence of “the universe” depends on “our minds,” it says that the existence of a quantum phenomenon depends on its observation. Who or what is observing is the open question.

Ross Ulbricht Denied Supreme Court Petition as Alleged Silk Road Co-Conspirator Faces Extradition to U.S. – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/ross-ulbricht-denied-supreme-court-petition-as-alleged-silk-road-co-conspirator-faces-extradition-to-u-s.html – “The U.S. Supreme Court disagreed with this assessment and decided not to hear the case. ‘The Supreme Court’s denial of Ross’ petition is devastating to us personally, but also to the Fourth Amendment and privacy rights of all Americans,’ Lyn Ulbricht, mother of Ross Ulbricht, told Activist Post… ‘We had hoped that not only would Ross receive relief from the Court, but that the federal government would finally be required to obtain a warrant before surveilling and seizing our internet browsing history.’ ”

True Artificial Consciousness – Is It Possible? – by Sean Webb – http://noetic.org/blog/communications-team/true-artificialAn interesting line of speculation. Webb possits that our nervous system somehow connects to an all-loving consciousness field that seemingly must be “out there” somewhere (all around us?). However, I would speculate that all living beings, down to the sub-atomic particle level are connected to the non-spatial, non-temporal quantum “zero point” and arise from this quantum phenomenon, and that cybernetic systems cannot become living-like-Pinnochio by some kind of retroactive hookup to the living quantum. Living systems must, I think, emerge naturally as an expression of life.

Globalists Are Telling Us Exactly What Disasters They’re Planning For The Economy – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/globalists-are-telling-us-exactly-what-disasters-theyre-planning-for-the-economy.html – “…globalist institutions controlled by the BIS are telling us exactly what is about to happen. With the US slated to enter a steep decline, and stagflationary dangers looming, major players are moving into gold and to some extent silver. It only makes sense that the common man, while he is still able, place a percentage of his savings into these commodities as well… With tangible commodities in hand, backed by the stability of localized trade, any community could weather the storm of a fiscal downturn. Without these things, survival is far less certain. The very despots that have the ability to cause a collapse are telling us a collapse is about to happen. It is time to take the matter seriously, and prepare accordingly.”

Doctors may not always be able to figure out why a child isn’t gaining weight, but as soon as the baby is diagnosed with failure to thrive, Child Protective Services is often quick to blame the parents and seize the child.” – Comment: One more sordid tale of CPS and Medical “Expert” mis- and malfeasance.

Giuliani said, ‘They haven’t come up with a scintilla of evidence; no facts, that the President had anything to do with the Russians.’ ”

Opposition to Breast-Feeding Resolution by U.S. Stuns World Health Officials – by Andrew Jacobs – https://www.lightonconspiracies.com/opposition-to-breast-feeding-resolution-by-u-s-stuns-world-health-officials/ – “American officials sought to water down the resolution by removing language that called on governments to “protect, promote and support breast-feeding” and another passage that called on policymakers to restrict the promotion of food products that many experts say can have deleterious effects on young children… When that failed, they turned to threats, according to diplomats and government officials who took part in the discussions. Ecuador, which had planned to introduce the measure, was the first to find itself in the cross hairs… The Americans were blunt: If Ecuador refused to drop the resolution, Washington would unleash punishing trade measures and withdraw crucial military aid. The Ecuadorean government quickly acquiesced… In the end, the Americans’ efforts were mostly unsuccessful. It was the Russians who ultimately stepped in to introduce the measure — and the Americans did not threaten them.” (emphasis added) – Note: The American delegation also interfered with health policy at the meeting in other ways mentioned in this article.

Who Is Isolating Whom? – by Martin Sieff – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/07/09/who-is-isolating-whom.html – “How can the United States, NATO, the EU or the Group of Seven now claim to uphold democratic values around the globe when two democracies with a combined population of more almost 1.5 billion – double the population of all the 28 nations combined in the EU and almost five times the population of the United States – have now opted to join the SCO?.. Why did Delhi and Islamabad both decide upon such an epochal move? Clearly, they did so in large part because both nations fear the future potential coercive designs of the Western alliances against either of them… Therefore despite US efforts at engineering Regime Change from Ukraine to Brazil, the accession of India and Pakistan to the SCO confirms the isolation of NATO in the wider world, shrinking the alliance’s expansion into Eastern Europe to just the western end of Eurasia and the periphery of East Asia.”

Estonia is the focus of a powerful initiative by the globalist techocrats to bring about their One World Government under the control of pathological ego (see the recent videos by Aaron and Melissa Dykes at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2frpU6nkb_I&t=163s & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kf7sY_JNQLI ). It’s interesting that Vishen Lakhiani has chosen it as the place to reveal the new iteration of his Mindvalley enterprise. While healing the education and socialization process of the world’s children is certainly an important and desirable goal, I wonder if what Vishen is proposing is not instead the creation of the ultimate system of social conditioning to create a technologically entrained population that will comply to tyranny without question and love their slavery.

For the Week of 7/2/18:

U.S. forces leaving al-Tanf…and Syria: Russia remains in The Levant – by Elijah J. Magnier – https://ejmagnier.com/2018/07/05/us-forces-leaving-al-tanfand-syria-russia-remains-in-the-levant/ – “Russian advisors visiting the Syrian capital Damascus are confident that the US forces will pull out of al-Tanf and will also aim to completely withdraw from north of Syria (al-Hasaka and Deir-Ezzour) in the next six months… According to top decision makers based in Damascus, the US President Donald Trump is pushing his administration to approve an already prepared total withdrawal plan. Despite Trump’s limited knowledge of foreign policy and being unaware of the consequences of his decisions in the international arena, however, he found no convincing elements – said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous – in the presentation by his administration where US forces could benefit from the continuation of their presence in such a hostile environment and without suffering hits in the future. Trump’s biggest fear to see the US special forces deployed in the north of Syria and in Iraq returning to the country “in plastic bags”. He would certainly find it hard to offer any explanation for the US occupation of the Levant after the defeat of ISIS (the “Islamic State” group) or what remained of it in Syria and Iraq.”

US, Iran Clash in Hormuz Strait: Not an Improbable Scenario – by Peter Korzun – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/07/07/us-iran-clash-in-hormuz-strait-not-improbable-scenario.html – ” Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani warned the United States about consequences. He said shipments from other countries would be disrupted if Iranian oil exports were suspended. Qassem Solaimani, the commander of the Al Quds Force in the Revolutionary Guards, joined him to confirm that his country will block oil shipments through the Hormuz Strait if the US administration stops Iranian oil exports. Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, said that ‘either all can use the Strait of Hormuz or no one.’ “

This Is What Modern War Propaganda Looks Like – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/this-is-what-modern-war-propaganda-looks-like-ffb523ce8be – “Whenever you see the sudden emergence of an attractive media campaign that is sympathetic to the plight of civilians in a resource-rich nation unaligned with the western empire, you are seeing propaganda. When that nation is surrounded by other nations with similar human rights transgressions and yet those transgressions are ignored by that same media campaign, you are most certainly seeing propaganda. When that nation just so happens to already be the target of starvation sanctions and escalated covert CIA ops, you can bet the farm that you are seeing propaganda… This is what war propaganda looks like in the era of social media. It will never look ugly. It will never directly show you its real intentions. If it did, it wouldn’t work. It can’t just come right out and say “Hey we need to do horrible, evil things to the people in this country on the other side of the world in your name using your resources, please play along without making a fuss.” It will necessarily look fresh and fun and rebellious. It will look appealing. It will look sexy.”

Amesbury, where they are now said to have been found unconscious, is about 4 km from the UK’s Porton Down Chemical Weapons Facility.

Secret US 2006 Gov’t Document Reveals Plan To Destabilize Syria By Using Extremists, Muslim Brotherhood, Elections – by Brandon Turbeville – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/secret-us-2006-govt-document-reveals-plan-to-destabilize-syria-by-using-extremists-muslim-brotherhood-elections.html – “it must be remembered that the goal to impose hegemony across the world by the Anglo-financier system is not some fly-by-night venture that cropped up in 2011 to be easily abandoned in 2018. Indeed, the plan to destroy Syria has spanned nearly four decades, only moving into high gear in 2011 under the Obama administration… While the destabilization initiative did begin in earnest under Obama’s watch, the truth is that previous administration were also heavily involved in the planning of Syria’s destruction… For instance, in 2006, TIME revealed a leaked two-page document circulating amongst key figures in the Bush administration that openly stated that the U.S. was ‘supporting regular meetings of internal and diaspora Syrian activists’ in Europe. The document made no bones about expressing hope that ‘these meetings will facilitate a more coherent strategy and plan of actions for all anti-Assad activists.’ ”

Police Union Calls for Banning of Books in High School Because They Mention Police Brutality – by Matt Agorist – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/police-union-calls-for-banning-of-books-in-high-school-because-they-mention-police-brutality.html – ” ‘ Censorship is a necessity of the police state. Peaceful ideas that oppose the status quo expose the insidious nature of the establishment and are therefore stricken from the public record. This has long been the practice of all empires and it is currently the practice in America today. Case in point: police in South Carolina are attempting to get two books in a school banned because they talk about police brutality and corruption… The Fraternal Order of Police in Tri-County have made their case public and are demanding that Angie Thomas’s multiple award-winning novel about police brutality, The Hate U Give, on a school’s summer reading list, be banned. The union referred to the book as “almost an indoctrination of distrust of police.”.. Another book on the radar of the union to be banned is Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely’s All American Boys, which sees a teenage boy trying to overcome his distrust of the police after he is wrongly suspected of shoplifting and then beaten by an officer. All American Boys even features a cop as a protagonist and mentor, yet the union wants it gone.”

Verizon Chairman and CEO, Lowell McAdam, “5G is Very Disruptive Technology.” Let Me Count The Very Disruptive Ways. – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/verizon-chairman-and-ceo-lowell-mcadam-5g-is-very-disruptive-technology-let-me-count-the-very-disruptive-ways.html – “For the last few years, every security expert on the planet has been warning that “connecting everything together” through 5G and The Internet of Things (IoT) could even have long-term catastrophic world-wide consequences. IoT already has an almost 75% failure rate. Doesn’t that sound disruptive enough to avoid?.. 5G means installing small cell towers everywhere – including in front of homes, in public rights of ways, etc. That’s disruptive. Many people are ticked off about this for many reasons – including reduction of their property value… McAdam also said 5G is good for the environment. OMG No! In September 2017, 180 scientists and doctors demanded a moratorium on the installation of 5G small cell tower infrastructure due to biological and environmental risks.”

Basic Law of the Jungle – The Playing Out of the Endgame in the Syrian War – by Evegny Satanovsky, translated by AlexD exclusively for SouthFront – https://southfront.org/basic-law-of-the-jungle/ – ” Moscow’s position is obvious – it requires Ankara to separate the opposition in Idlib with the elimination of Jabhat al-Nusra supporters. Ankara plans to put these groups under the control both through reconciliation and through the absorption of their groups by pro-Turkish opposition groups. In this case, a non-agreement-capable opposition group remains in Idlib, making any attempts of creating a constitution impossible. Even more so, in Ankara’s plans for Syria there is no desire to conduct a dialogue with Damascus about the future political architecture of this country.”

Mainstream Media Admits FBI Groomed Terrorist for 4th of July Attack, Gave Him Supplies – by Rachel Blevins – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/07/mainstream-media-admits-fbi-groomed-terrorist-for-4th-of-july-attack-gave-him-supplies.html – “An innocent man is now facing terrorism charges after he was caught plotting a bombing at a Fourth of July celebration and then arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The only problem is that the plot was created by undercover FBI agents, who convinced the man to agree to a role in the plan, and then provided him with supplies… Demetrius Pitts, 48, is now facing criminal charges after conversations with undercover agents led to his arrest. According to the criminal complaint against Pitts, the FBI claimed that its agents reached out to him because he made comments on Facebook that indicated he may be interested in joining al-Qaeda, traveling overseas for training, and then returning to the U.S. to carry out an attack… While it is not clear what the comments from Pitts—who was reportedly using a Facebook account with a different name—stated exactly, it is clear that there was no indication he actually planned on carrying out a terrorist attack. In fact, a report from NBC News admitted that ‘there’s no indication that Pitts could have carried off any attack on his own.’ ”

He’s expected to be tapped out within a year… Where has the money gone? To lawyers, lawyers, lawyers, elder service providers, and the like. Heck, the lawyers even charge one another to talk to each other and to send e-mails to one another, and then bill the estate. They also spend money on the daily care of Marvin, including their posted 24/7/365 “guards,” as Marvin’s daughter Lisa Siegel Belanger refers to his round-the-clock paid “caregivers,” whom she has detailed keep the senior isolated in his Boxford home.

US Democratic senators demand eviction of Julian Assange from Ecuador’s London embassy – by James Cogan – http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/06/28/assa-j28.html – “Ten Democratic Party senators have issued a reprehensible call for the Trump administration to demand that the Ecuadorian government renege on the political asylum it provided WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange six years ago and evict him from its London embassy. He would then be detained by British police, while US agencies filed extradition warrants… The letter of the senators was addressed to Vice President Mike Pence, ahead of his visit to Ecuador today and top-level talks with the small country’s president, Lenín Moreno. The signatories are a roll-call of leading congressional Democrats: Robert Menendez, Dick Durbin, Richard Blumenthal, Edward J. Markey, Michael Bennet, Christopher Coons, Joe Manchin, Jeanne Shaheen, Diane Feinstein and Mark Warner… The document exudes deceit, and the hatred of the American ruling class for Assange…”

More Evidence That Half of Americans Are In or Near Poverty – by Paul Buchheit – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49769.htm – “According to CareerBuilder, 3 out of 4 American workers are living paycheck to paycheck, unable to meet any major expense in health care or home and auto repairs. Charles Schwab says 3 out of 5 Americans live paycheck to paycheck. That’s 60 to 75 percent of us… The United Way ALICE Project has calculated that 43% of U.S. households can’t afford a monthly budget that includes housing, food, child care, health care, transportation and a cell phone. The Federal Reserve concurs, estimating that 42% of U.S. adults are experiencing a high likelihood of material hardship.”

But Hasan pulls him back with the following: ‘Oh, come on, but you were coordinating a lot of their arms.’.. The two spar over Hasan’s charge of “bolstering jihadists” in the following key section of the interview, at the end of which Rhodes reluctantly answers “yeah…” — but while trying to pass ultimate blame onto US allies Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia (similar to what Vice President Biden did in a 2014 speech) – ‘Mehdi Hasan: Oh, come on, but you were coordinating a lot of their arms. You know, the U.S. was heavily involved in that war with the Saudis and the Qataris and the Turks… Ben Rhodes: Well, I was going to say: Turkey, Qatar, Saudi… MH: You were in there as well… BR: Yeah, but, the fact of the matter is that once it kind of devolved into kind of a sectarian-based civil war with different sides fighting for their perceived survival, I think we, the ability to bring that type of situation to close, and part of what I wrestled with in the book is the limits of our ability to pull a lever and make killing like that stop once it’s underway…’ To our knowledge this is the only time a major media organization has directly asked a high ranking foreign policy adviser from the Obama administration to own up to the years long White House support to jihadists in Syria.”

From the Official-State-Propaganda Desk: Horrific Details on Syria Chemical Attacks Left Out, for Now, From U.N. Report – by Rick Gladstone and Maggie Haberman – https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/20/world/middleeast/un-syria-eastern-ghouta.html – “At least twice this year, the Syrian military fired Iranian-made artillery shells filled with a chlorine-like substance that oozed poison slowly, giving victims just a few minutes to escape… In another attack, Syrian forces dropped a chemical bomb on the top-floor balcony of an apartment building, killing 49 people, including 11 children. Their skin turned blue… These details and others blaming Syria for atrocities in eastern Ghouta, a suburb of Damascus, were uncovered by a United Nations commission investigating and documenting possible war crimes in the seven-year-old conflict. But when the commission issued a report on Wednesday, the details were omitted.” (emphasis added)Comment: All of these “details” were reported by social media accounts and evidence provided by the White Helmets (spuriously called the “Syrian Civil Defense”). The NYT can’t seem to get these qualifications on their report into print.

Mother Faces Jury Trial As Texas Seeks to Terminate Her Parental Rights Over Daughter Injured by Gardasil Vaccinehttp://healthimpactnews.com/2018/mother-faces-jury-trial-as-texas-seeks-to-terminate-her-parental-rights-over-daughter-injured-by-gardasil-vaccine/ – “Instead, the mother was accused by doctors and social workers of Munchausen syndrome by proxy (today usually called “factitious disorder”), a diagnosis that has become a convenient scapegoat to accuse parents, usually mothers, of children who are vaccine injured, medically complex, or victims of medical malpractice… It is a difficult accusation to fight, since even Munchausen experts recognize that the symptoms of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, or “medical child abuse” as it is sometimes referred as, are remarkably similar to those of parents who are seeking medical help for children with difficult medical conditions… Dr. Marc Feldman, who is considered to be a leading authority on the subject of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, says that the very fact that a mother protests and defends herself and her child is perceived as a further indication of her guilt. It is a lose/lose scenario, he told Health Impact News. (see article).” (emphasis added)

The study, called “Looking Beyond the Hype” investigates whether cryptocurrencies could play any role as money… After a bit of digging, I found the crypto report is part of an upcoming BIS annual report. The BIS pre-released the crypto report today (as chapter 5)… Here’s a link to the page that contains a download for two Pre-Released BIS Chapters, one of them is on cryptos. I provide some snips below… ●.Cryptocurrency technology comes with poor efficiency and vast energy use; ●.Cryptocurrencies cannot scale with transaction demand, are prone to congestion and greatly fluctuate in value; ●.Overall, the decentralised technology of cryptocurrencies, however sophisticated, is a poor substitute for the solid institutional backing of money; ●.The underlying technology could have promise in other applications, such as the simplification of administrative processes in the settlement of financial transactions. Still, this remains to be tested.” – Comment: So Central Bankers don’t like cryptos. Surprise, surprise, surprise…

New Copyright Law Could Make Current and Future Internet Memes Illegal to Share – by John Vibes – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/new-copyright-law-could-make-current-and-future-internet-memes-illegal-to-share.html – “The law, known as the “Copyright Directive,” will be voted on later this month by the European Parliament, and lawmakers suggest that this will protect content creators in the Internet age. However, one of the primary reasons why the internet age has brought us so much innovation and novelty is because of the fact that such a large aggregate of people are able to share their ideas and build upon the ideas of others to create something uniquely special… Article 13 of the proposed bill calls on platform providers such as Google, Facebook, and Web hosts to ‘take measures to ensure the functioning of agreements concluded with rights-holders for the use of their works.’.. This type of policy would create a slippery slope that could very quickly lead to a situation where platforms are required to add a filter for the content that is shared through them, which will restrict the ability for creators to do something as simple as creating a meme or a remix of a song.”

The CIA replied: ‘The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the requested documents.’ ”

4 Signposts of American Collapse Which Also Occurred in the USSR – “Having witnessed one collapse, and now witnessing another, the one approach I would definitely not recommend is doing nothing and hoping for the best.” – by Dmitry Orlov – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/4-signposts-american-collapse-which-also-occurred-ussr/ri23855 – “This is not an academic question: those who gauge it accurately may be able to get the hell out ahead of time, while the lights are mostly still on, while not everybody is walking around in a drug-induced mental haze, and mass shootings and other types of mayhem are still considered newsworthy… This hindsight makes it possible for us to spot certain markers that showed up then and are showing up now. The four that I want to discuss now are the following: 1. Allies are being alienated; 2. Enmities dissipate; 3. Ideology becomes irrelevant; 4. Military posture turns flaccid… All of these are plain to see already in the American collapse. As with the Soviet collapse, there is a certain incubation period for each of these trends, lasting perhaps a year or two, during which not much seems to be happening, but when it is over everything comes unstuck all at once.”

US official: Israel behind mysterious Syria airstrike that killed dozens – Washington shunts blame on Jerusalem for attack this week on pro-regime fighters near Iraqi border, after Damascus accuses US-led coalition – https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-behind-mysterious-syria-airstrike-that-killed-dozens-us-official/ – “An airstrike that killed more than 50 pro-regime fighters in eastern Syria, most of them foreign, was carried out by Israel, not the United States, a US official told CNN Monday… A US source also told AFP: ‘We have reasons to believe that it was an Israeli strike.’.. At a cabinet meeting on Sunday Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that Israel was ‘taking action — against efforts to establish a military presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria both close to the border and deep inside Syria. We will act against these efforts anywhere in Syria.’ ”

The Coming Deep State Massacre (Part One) – by Dave Hodges – http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/the-coming-deep-state-massacre-part-one/ – “In a nutshell, this paper will reveal that high profile figures have been involved in treasonous activity against the United States, coupled with illicit criminal behavior at the same time. I have learned that some of these figures are on the verge of being arrested and indicted y the Trump administration. Unlike my Benghazi revelations, I do not stand alone in my discoveries. Without the information I have recently learned, I could have made a strong circumstantial case supporting what is going to be revealed here today. Subsequently, from a credibility standpoint, this is very low risk. However, from a personal safety perspective, it would not be wise to reveal my discoveries and recent conclusions… Part one of this series consists of contextual background which will provide the factual justification to make the allegations against key Deep State operatives in Part two.”

US Attack Syrian Army Position, Death Toll Rises to 40 – by Al-Masdar News – http://21stcenturywire.com/2018/06/18/us-attack-syrian-army-position-death-toll-rises-to-40/ – “In response to these allegations, the Pentagon has denied carrying out this deadly attack in eastern Syria… The Syrian Army has not responded to the attack and will not likely attack the US-backed forces in the region, as this would only escalate the situation and lead to violent confrontation… Furthermore, it is not necessarily clear that the U.S. Coalition carried out the attack, a some pro-government activists have accused the Israeli Air Force of carrying out the airstrikes… Albukamal is a long distance from the Israeli border, but it would be a viable target for their military, given the large presence of Iranian-backed forces near the Iraqi-Syrian border.” Israel has also never attacked the Syrian military this far from their border, so if they were behind this – this would be the first time they have every bombed the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Mattis: Putin Is Trying To “Undermine America’s Moral Authority” – by Caitlin Johnstone – https://southfront.org/mattis-putin-is-trying-to-undermine-americas-moral-authority/ – “In order to believe that the US has anything resembling “moral authority” you have to shove your head so far into the sand you get lava burns, but that really is what is needed to keep western anti-Russia hysteria going. None of the things the Russian government has been accused of doing (let alone the very legitimate questions about whether or not they even did all of them) merit anything but an indifferent shrug when compared with the unforgivable evils that America’s unelected power establishment has been inflicting upon the world, so they need to weave a narrative about “moral authority” in order to give those accusations meaning and relevance. And, since the notion of America having moral authority is contradicted by all facts in evidence, that narrative is necessarily woven of threads of fantasy and denial.”

U.S. Military Involvement in Ukraine: NATO Expansion through Proxy War – by Brian Kalman – https://southfront.org/u-s-military-involvement-in-ukraine-nato-expansion-through-proxy-war/ – “The message being send to the Russian MOD is clear. The United States is sending soldiers especially trained in asymmetrical warfare to its borders, and has increased cooperation and influence with peer forces in those same nations. Most of these nations had long been in Russia’s sphere of influence. Operation Rapid Trident or similar training exercises have been held in Ukraine in some form or another since 1995, and have been attended by a growing list of NATO, NATO-aligned and non-NATO countries located on Russia’s periphery in increasing number in recent years. It is not hard to image the U.S response to Russia deploying Spetsnaz forces in increasing numbers in training exercises in Canada, Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. The hypocrisy is obvious when viewed in these terms. U.S. SOCOM deploys soldiers to roughly three quarters of the nations of the world over the course of a year, increasingly to nations bordering Russia and the continent of Africa, and yet NATO complains when Russia conducts military exercises within its own borders, or in conjunction with its global allies.”

Saudi Aggressive Attacks against Hodeida – by Sondoss Al Asaad – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/06/17/saudi-aggressive-attacks-against-hodeida/ – “On 9 June, the United Arab Emirates, which leads the coalition’s operations along the Yemeni western coast, informed the humanitarian organisations that they had three days to evacuate the Red Sea port city of Hodeida. In fact, about 70 percent of Yemen’s aid and commercial imports enter through Hodeida and the nearby Saleef port, providing food, fuel, and medicines needed to prevent famine and cholera epidemic… The devastating war raging in Yemen is on the verge of entering an atrocious vicious stage… Mohammed Abdul-Salam, Houthi spokesperson, conversely said that the British and French warships are on standby on the western coast of Yemen to launch missile and aerial attacks. He hailed the Houthis’ resistance against the Western-sponsored aggressors, emphasising that the Hodeida assault is an American-British operation as Saudi Arabia and the UAE are not alone capable of launching such an operation.” (emphasis added)

Bilderberg 2018 Wraps Up – 2020 US President Anointed? – by Mark Anderson – http://americanfreepress.net/bilderberg-2018-wraps-up-2020-president-picked/ – “The meeting was heavily attended by national security and military personnel, including former CIA chief David Petraeus. According to the independent “Truthstream Media” news website, their presence suggests that more aggressive policies toward Russia are being considered, running an ever-greater risk of a military standoff, provoked largely by NATO’s increasing movement of military assets toward the Russian border… In terms of the American domestic connection, the attendance of Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is of particular interest. While about 6,000 acres of Colorado forest land was being swallowed up by wildfires, threatening about 2,000 homes as Bilderberg 2018 began, the two-term Democrat opted to remain in Turin with the Bilderbergers.”

President Assad Interview with Al-ALAM TV (13 June 2018)https://www.syriana-analysis.com/president-assad-interview-with-al-alam-tv-13-june-2018/ – “President al-Assad affirmed that since the beginning of the war, particularly when it started to have a clear military nature on the southern front in particular, the Israelis used to shell Syrian forces continuously, and consequently provide direct support to the terrorists. Israeli artillery and aircraft are the terrorists’ artillery and aircraft… Despite Israeli support to the terrorists, we have been doing our job, and the Syrian Army is fighting its way towards the southern front, and has liberated a number of areas within the limits of its capabilities. So, with or without its approval, the decision is a Syrian one, and this is a national duty we shall carry out… Following. the full text of the interview:” – Comment: Another fine example of Assad’s clarity and poise regarding the amazing capacities of the Syrian people to remain steadfast in the face of multifaceted attacks from the West.

China Strikes Back – Retaliates With $50 Billion Tariffs On US Goods – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-15/china-strikes-back-retaliates-50-billion-tariffs-us-goods – “The response from China signaled a rapid escalation of the dispute. China will impose tariffs with “equal scale, equal intensity” on imports from the U.S. and all of the country’s earlier trade commitments are now off the table, the Commerce Ministry said in a statement on its website late Friday… As China refines its retaliatory tariffs, it clarified Friday afternoon in New York that tariffs on US soybeans will begin July 6, while tariffs on US crude oil, natural gas, coal and some refined oil products will begin at a later date.”

Once Again, U.S. Warns Syrian Army From Advancing In Southern Syriahttps://southfront.org/once-again-u-s-warns-syrian-army-from-advancing-in-southern-syria/ – “The U.S will take “firm and appropriate measures” in response to any attack of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on the “de-escalation zone” in southwestern Syria, the U.S. Department of State warned in an official press release on June 14… ‘The ceasefire arrangement and southwest de-escalation zone were initiatives by Presidents Trump and Putin to de-escalate the Syrian conflict, save lives, and create conditions for the displaced to safely and voluntarily return to their homes. A military offensive by the Syrian regime into this ceasefire zone would defy these initiatives, which have been a success to date,’ the U.S. Department of State said.” (emphasis added) – Comment: Perhaps the State Dept. can explain why the Expat Syrian refugees return to their homes in droves only after the terrorists are driven out of occupied territory.

Germany pours cold water on EU’s clean energy ambitions – by Frédéric Simon – https://www.euractiv.com/section/energy/news/germany-pours-cold-water-on-eus-clean-energy-ambitions/ – “Voters across Europe have lost faith in politics partly because of “unachievable targets” on renewable energy, said German Energy Minister Peter Altmaier, who rejected calls from a group of other EU countries to boost the share of renewables to 33-35% of the bloc’s energy mix by 2030… Altmaier made the comments during an on-the-record exchange between the 28 EU energy ministers, who are gathered in Luxembourg today (11 June) for a meeting of the Energy Council… ‘Germany supports responsible but achievable targets,’ Altmaier said from the outset, underlining Berlin’s efforts to raise the share of renewables to 15% of the country’s overall energy mix… But he said those efforts also carried a cost for the German taxpayer, which he put at €25 billion per year. ‘And if we are setting targets that are definitely above 30%, that means that within a decade, our share has to be more than doubled – clearly more than doubled,’ Altmaier pointed out… ‘We’re not going to manage that,’ Altmaier said referring to an objective of putting 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2020 in Germany. ‘Nowhere in Europe is going to manage that,’ he claimed. “And even if we did manage to get enough electric cars, we wouldn’t have enough renewable electricity to keep them on the road,’ he stressed.” (emphasis added)

Dirty Cop Mueller’s Case Is Unraveling – Time to Shut Him Down and Indict His Deep State Allies – by Jim Hoft – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/dirty-cop-muellers-case-unraveling-time-shut-him-down-and-indict-his-deep-state-allies – “One of the most profound interviews that described the events over the past few years by the corrupt and criminal individuals in the Deep State that led to the Mueller investigation was reported by the Daily Caller in January. Legal expert Joe DiGenova explained the many criminal activities by the Deep State – Corrupt and dirty cop Mueller started the ‘witch hunt’ and began looking into individuals with any relationship with President Trump. Mueller’s team were not interested in crimes that President Trump committed. There are none. Instead, Mueller went after anyone with any relationship to the President. His entire team has serious conflicts of interest and his investigation is unconstitutional, but this has not deterred Mueller.” – Comment: Good article

Is Trump-Kim Deal Really Peace Or Is It A Set Up For War? – by Brandon Turbeville – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/is-trump-kim-deal-really-peace-or-is-it-a-set-up-for-war.html – “While Republicans, having never met a war they didn’t like, attempted to keep their rage at the idea of peace under control, many like chicken hawk Lindsey Graham appeared on national media to tone down praise of Trump and warn against showing weakness and removing troops from one of America’s many war zones. Essentially, they are arguing that America should dictate the terms, Kim should agree, and there should be no American concessions of any value… Democrats, however, have predictably been frothing at the mouth at even the idea of peace, particularly a peace negotiated by “literally Hitler” himself, Donald Trump. These warmongers and psychotics have railed against even talking to Kim Jong Un, claiming that there should be no peace whatsoever with a nation that has such horrible human rights violations, as if the United States has not racked up enough of those same violations of its own. These critics complain that Trump is engaging in “appeasement” of some kind which seems impossible to explain to anyone using logic or who is restrained by reality… But what is actually happening with this summit? Is it a true and genuine desire for peace or is it just cover for the next war to take shape over the next several years?”

For Hong Kong to realize the benefits of innovation and technology investment across the six key pillars of its Smart City BluePrint – Smart Mobility, Smart Living, Smart Environment, Smart People, Smart Government, Smart Economy – the government should go beyond point-to-point technology-centric solutions. It should drive value in three key areas: ● Ecosystem innovation… ● Process innovation… ● Business-model innovation…”

Blackstone, BlackRock or a Public Bank? Putting California’s Funds to Work – by Ellen Brown – https://ellenbrown.com/2018/05/26/blackstone-blackrock-or-a-public-bank-putting-californias-funds-to-work/ – “California has over $700 billion parked in private banks earning minimal interest, private equity funds that contributed to the affordable housing crisis, or shadow banks of the sort that caused the banking collapse of 2008. These funds, or some of them, could be transferred to an infrastructure bank that generated credit for the state – while the funds remained safely on deposit in the bank... A 2011 report by the Brookings Institution found that “in practice [PPPs] have been dogged by contract design problems, waste, and unrealistic expectations.” In their 2015 report “Why Public-Private Partnerships Don’t Work,” Public Services International stated that “experience over the last 15 years shows that PPPs are an expensive and inefficient way of financing infrastructure and divert government spending away from other public services. They conceal public borrowing, while providing long-term state guarantees for profits to private companies.” They also divert public money away from the neediest infrastructure projects, which may not deliver sizable returns, in favor of those big-ticket items that will deliver hefty profits to investors. A March 2017 report by the Economic Policy Institute titled “No Free Bridge” also highlighted the substantial costs and risks involved in public-private partnerships and other “innovative” financing of infrastructure.”

But in reality, the real issues that lead to mass shootings are being ignored and the rhetoric that is being shared in the name of “safety,” is instead chipping away at the Second Amendment, and in some cases, pushing to repeal it altogether.”

Ukraine’s replacing its democratically elected neutralist [washingtonsblog.com] Government in February 2014, by a rabidly anti-Russian [rinf.com] Government, was a violent event, which produced many corpses.

She found that many of the study subjects has cancer, motor-neuron disorders and chronic fatigue Syndrome (CFS). She believed a virus may have been responsible for these symptoms, and through her research, she isolated the viruses that turned out to come from mice… She soon realized that these protein and viral contaminants were being introduced into the human population via contaminated vaccines.”

Thousands of Children in the UK Foster Care System Are Being Sold to Pedophile Rings – by Christina England – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/thousands-of-children-in-the-uk-foster-care-system-are-being-sold-to-pedophile-rings/ – “According to a growing number of reports, thousands of children are simply disappearing from the UK Care System (the equivalent of the “Foster Care” system in the U.S.) every year, and what is said to be happening to them is too awful to contemplate… On May 7, 2018, an article published in The Independent, titled Hundreds more children ‘farmed out’ to care homes miles from where they live despite pledge to cut number, reported that the number of children in the UK who were being sent to residential homes hundreds of miles away from where they live had risen by 64 percent… ‘There has also been a surge in the number of sent-away children going missing from their care homes, with the number of incidents more than doubling – from 4,380 in 2015 to 9,190 in 2017.’ “

Seen as Undermining Bold Agenda, Progressives Rip Dem Leaders’ Embrace of ‘Absurd’ Pay-Go Rule – “The old guard of this pathetic, impotent party needs to retire or be voted out.” – by Jake Johnson – https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/06/07/seen-undermining-bold-agenda-progressives-rip-dem-leaders-embrace-absurd-pay-go-rule – “Embracing the kind of deficit phobia frequently deployed by the GOP and corporate Democrats to undercut ambitious goals like Medicare for All, free public college, and a transformative green energy plan, Democratic leaders are vowing to reinstitute “fiscally hawkish” pay-as-you go rules if they retake control of the House in 2018—a move progressives denounced as severely wrongheaded and “actively harmful.” ”

Israeli Company Is Selling Autonomous Surveillance Systems to Governments Around the World – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/israeli-selling-surveillance-systems-governments-around-world.html – On Thursday, Israeli surveillance technology company Jenovice announced a slew of new surveillance products aimed at monitoring Wi-Fi enabled devices in order to gain intelligence on targets.

Conspiracy Theory Proven Fact as Cops Remove Senator from Walmart Converted into Detention Center – by Jack Burns – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/conspiracy-theory-proven-fact-as-cops-remove-senator-from-walmart-converted-into-detention-center.html – “All the windows and doors to the facility—which is a shuttered Walmart—have been blacked out with window tinting. Merkley arrived and was immediately asked to leave by a female government worker… One of the country’s most powerful lawmakers (Jeff Merkely, D-Or) then demanded to speak with a supervisor. Instead of complying with his wishes in the name of transparency, the shadowy government workers called Brownsville police on the U.S. Senator. After 10 minutes of waiting and being confronted by local police, he was denied entry and forced to leave… (in a) video (Merkley) added: ‘So far, as far as we know, no member of Congress has actually been allowed to see what’s going on with this program.’.. After the video began gaining traction, the White House lashed out at the senator, claiming that he is “spreading blatant lies” about the reality of the situation… What’s more, DHS press secretary Tyler Houlton said Merkley was actually able to visit the facility—in spite of the video showing otherwise… ‘At 2pm on a Friday, the Senator asked to visit a secure DHS facility over the weekend where children are present and we worked with him to provide him access,’ Houlton said. ‘This presented obvious and serious privacy concerns – not to mention disrupting operations. He was able to visit the facility on Sunday.’.. That never happened.(emphasis added)

Mass-Migration Should Be Accepted By Western Nations, UN SecGen – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-06-05/mass-migration-should-be-accepted-western-nations-un-secgen – “Currently, nearly 1,3 billion people live in Africa, and by the end of this century there will be 350% more, or 4,4 billion.1) It is obvious that the continent, whose inhabitants are not able to feed themselves, let alone achieve an adequate level of urbanization and industrialization, cannot cope with such a sharp demographic increase. The UN therefore came up with the idea of resettling Africans to Europe and highly developed countries on other continents… At the end of 2016, just after his election as UN Secretary General, António Guterres said: “We must convince Europeans that migration is inevitable and that multiethnic and multireligious societies create wealth”.2) It can be assumed here that the goal set by the former UN commissioner for refugees (A. Gutters served this function from June to December 2015), is to promote migration, give it a legal framework and manage it globally.”

From the If-You-Only-Read-One-Article-This-Week Desk: Is Putin Really Ready to “Ditch” Iran? – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/is-putin-really-ready-to-ditch-iran/ – “My personal evaluation is that Putin is playing a very complex and potentially dangerous game. He is trying to trick not one, but many “devils”, all at the same time. Furthermore, if the US Americans have been недоговороспособны (“not agreement capable”) already since Obama, Trump and his Neocon masters have made that even worse. As for the Israelis, they would make Satan himself look honest and are ideologically incapable of honesty (or even decency). Frankly, I don’t trust Erdogan one bit and I don’t think that the Russians will ever trust him either. Call me naive, but I think that Assad has been changed by this war and even if he did, indeed, collaborate with the CIA in the past, I think that he will be a pretty good ally for Russia in the future. As for Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Hassan Nasrallah, I see them both as men of honor who will uphold any alliance they formally enter into (informal understandings and temporary mutual interests are a different deal).” – Comment: For anyone who has the least desire to understand what’s going on now in the Middle East (or, for that matter in the World of International Affairs), a close reading of this fantastic article will provide immense rewards.

From the Delicious-Irony Desk: NATO Launches Massive, 20,000-Strong Exercise in Eastern Europe Citing ‘Russian Threat’ – Meanwhile the German daily Die Welt reports that NATO is preparing to deploy a 30,000-strong reserve force, plus hundreds of warplanes and vessels for quick deployment ostensibly on fears of Russia invasion – by Tyler Durden – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/nato-launches-massive-20000-strong-exercise-eastern-europe-citing-russian-threat/ri23714 – “Meanwhile, tensions between Moscow and NATO could escalated further as NATO prepares to increase troop reserves even more. Citing diplomatic sources in Brussels, Die Welt reported that NATO is preparing to deploy a 30,000-strong reserve force, plus hundreds of warplanes and vessels for quick deployment in the event of an invasion by Russia… The report which was quoted by Sputnik said the reserve force would be added to the 20,000-strong NATO response force in Europe, which can be deployed within a month.

Pompeo’s Speech Against Iran Reveals Failure of US Foreign Policy – by Dan Kovalik – https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/06/07/pompeos-speech-against-iran-reveals-failure-of-us-foreign-policy/ – “Pompeo’s claim about Iran and its neighbours simply reflect little understanding of the history of the country or the region. For the past 100 years, Iran has been subjected to military aggression from its neighbours, experiencing military occupation during both World Wars. After the Islamic Revolution of 1979, it went through eight years of war, defending itself from Saddam Hussain and the MEK — the latter which, despite assassinating 17,000 Iranians and even several Americans as well, have now developed a strong relationship with Pompeo and Trump’s National Security Advisor, John Bolton… It should be mentioned that even prior to the recent antics, the Iranian people had little reason to accept the “goodwill” of the United States. The CIA’s 1953 coup d’état against the democratically-elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh; the brutal sanctions regime of the past decades; the attempted coups, such as the Nojeh Coup of 1980; and the sale of VX nerve agent and other chemical weapons to Saddam Hussain during the height of the Iran-Iraq war have not been forgotten. The devastation of Iran’s neighbouring countries by the US, and the US’s banning of Iranians from entry, are also hard to overlook.”

The REAL Robert Mueller: Docs show he let four innocent men rot or die in prison to protect a mafia source – by J.D. Heyes – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-06-06-the-real-robert-mueller-docs-show-he-let-four-innocent-men-rot-or-die-in-prison-to-protect-a-mafia-source.html – “However, not everyone knows that Mueller has a scurrilous, scandalous history involving four innocent men he allowed to either rot or die in prison just to protect a mafia source named Joseph “The Animal” Barboza… As radio host Howie Carr, writing for The Daily Caller, recounts, newly revealed FBI documents note that in 2002, when Mueller was director of the FBI, he instructed agents to oppose the pardons of the four men — Louie Greco, Henry Tameleo, Peter Limone and Joe Salvati — because, he said, exculpatory evidence that had long existed was just “fodder for cross-examination,” one document shows.”

FBI Turns Against Anti-Vaccine Doctor After She Reports Death Threats – by Brian Shilhavy – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/fbi-turns-against-anti-vaccine-doctor-after-she-reports-death-threats/ – “These threats were reported to the FBI, but now Natural News is reporting that instead of investigating the threats, the FBI started a criminal investigation against Dr. (Susan) Humphries, accusing her of being behind the death threats herself… Mike Adams of Natural News writes: ‘Dr. Humphries was subjected to a series of death threats culminating in a vile “mass shooting” threat that detailed exactly how a hater of Dr. Humphries planned to shoot her at a public event. Upon receiving this threat, Dr. Humphries immediately filed criminal complaints with both the Austin Police Department and the FBI. This action generated an Austin PD case number which Dr. Humphries privately noted… [T]he person who wrote it apparently panicked and realized they were likely going to be hunted down by federal authorities and criminally prosecuted. So they faxed over an apology letter to both the Austin PD and the FBI, claiming they weren’t serious about their vile death threats targeting Dr. Humphries. Importantly, in this apology letter, they cited the Austin PD case number… The FBI then seized upon this as implied “proof” that falsely claimed Dr. Humphries must have been the author all along, since, as the FBI claimed, Austin PD case numbers are not available to the public and are kept secure… Dr. Humphries told Natural News that she was aghast upon realizing the FBI was now targeting her as a potential criminal instead of going after the real person who made the death threats in the first place.’ ”

Manbij Consequences: YPG Political Leadership Says It’s Ready To Negotiate With Damascushttps://southfront.org/manbij-consequences-ypg-political-leadership-says-its-ready-to-negotiate-with-damascus/ – “The political leadership of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) seems to start realizing that its “iron-clad” alliance with the Washington establishment may be not so strong as the YPG has wanted to believe… On June 4, the US and Turkey announced that they had endorsed a roadmap for the Syrian city of Manbij. According to remarks by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu after a meeting with U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo in Washington, the roadmap will include three stages and will be implemented less than in 6 months. Çavuşoğlu said that the key part of the roadmap is to clear the area from the YPG/PKK and includes the following steps: ● removal of YPG/PKK forces from Manbij; ● removal of YPG/PKK affiliated individuals from local governing organizations; ● forming of a new local governing administration; ● setting up joint US-Turkish patrols.”

Turkey death watch – Despite another expected rate hike on Thursday, the lira is struggling to reverse its decline, and president Erdogan is ill-equipped to avert disaster – http://www.atimes.com/article/turkey-death-watch/ – “In US dollars, Turkey’s stock market now trades 34% lower than its August 29, 2017 level, and half of its early 2015 value. Falling bank share prices accounted for most of today’s 1.5% decline… Turkey financed, or better said, stoked, a current account deficit of 6% of GDP through foreign-currency loans to corporations. Now the banks face a prospective jump in defaults as their corporate borrowers have to pay back dollar and euro loans in depreciating Turkish lira… The lira has seen a near 20% decline versus the dollar this year alone. The freefall was stopped briefly over the past several weeks after a surprise rate hike. But expectations of another hike on Thursday have not kept the lira from falling again.”

Gardasil HPV Vaccine Acceptance into China Creates Instant Billionaires – by Brian Shilhavy – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/gardasil-hpv-vaccine-acceptance-into-china-creates-instant-billionaires/ – “China’s acceptance of the Gardasil vaccine is the exact opposite of how most other countries of the world are treating the vaccine, as lawsuits increase outside the U.S., and some foreign governments are no longer recommending the vaccine due to the dangerous side effects… Will many of China’s young women need to suffer serious debilitating health problems before the Chinese government reconsiders its decision?”

Spooks Spooking Themselves – As the role of a well-connected group of British and U.S. intelligence agents begins to emerge, new suspicions are growing about what hand they may have had in weaving the Russia-gate story, as Daniel Lazare explainshttps://consortiumnews.com/2018/05/31/spooks-spooking-themselves/ – “It’s looking more and more massive. The intelligence agencies initiated reports that Donald Trump was colluding with Russia, they nurtured them and helped them grow, and then they spread the word to the press and key government officials. Reportedly, they even tried to use these reports to force Trump to step down prior to his inauguration. Although the corporate press accuses Trump of conspiring with Russia to stop Hillary Clinton, the reverse now seems to be the case: the Obama administration intelligence agencies worked with Clinton to block “Siberian candidate” Trump.”

Did Israel Kill the Kennedys? – by Laurent Guyénot – http://www.unz.com/article/did-israel-kill-the-kennedies/ – “The nonsensical notion of a mysterious curse on the Kennedy family is an obvious smoke screen. The unsolved murders of JFK and his two legitimate heirs—his younger brother and his only son—require a more rational explanation. The sense that the official stories about their deaths amount to a huge cover-up is obsessing the American psyche, a bit like a repressed family secret affecting the whole personality from a subconscious level… President John Kennedy and his brother are heroic, almost Christ-like figures, in the heart of a growing community of citizens who have become aware of the disastrous longtime effect of their assassinations. Only when the American public at large come to grips with the truth of their deaths and honor their legacy and sacrifice will America have a chance to be redeemed and be great again.”

US Tries in Vain, There Is No Stopping Nordstream 2. Will Stand as Monument to Lost US Influence in Europe – US keeps attacking the Russia-Germany pipeline revealing contempt for its European vassals but also weakness as the pipe will be laid regardless – by Tom Luongo – https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/us-tries-vain-there-no-stopping-nordstream-2-will-stand-monument-lost-us-influence-europe – “They still dream of putting missile ‘defense’ systems on Russia’s border to intimidate Putin into submission. They are, to paraphrase Darth Vader, as clumsy as they are stupid… But, with the Russia inching closer to putting its hyper-sonic weapons into the field and Europe vulnerable financially and politically, this is the last chance they have to stop Eurasian integration and continue the Empire… Trump is threatening people he has transitory leverage over in the EU. Nordstream 2 is a path to EU independence, not slavery to Russia. The EU’s politics are not controlled by Russian imperatives. So, all talk of “European Energy Security” is complete nonsense… This is about maintaining the post-WWII institutional control the U.S. and the U.K. have had for the past three generations. But, the rest of the world has had it. Europeans have had it with their leaders doing Washington’s and Wall St.’s bidding.” (emphasis added)

Israel Aiding Saudi Arabia In Developing Nuclear Weapons – by Whitney Webb – https://www.mintpressnews.com/israel-saudi-arabia-nuclear-weapons/243256/ – “The Israeli government has begun selling the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia information on how to develop nuclear weapons, according to a senior official at the Israeli military organization iHLS (Israel’s Homeland Security). Ami Dor-on, a senior nuclear commentator at the organization — which is partially funded by U.S. weapons-giant Raytheon – came forward because of his concern over the emerging nuclear arms race in the region. The cooperation between the two countries in helping the Saudis to develop a nuclear weapons program is just the latest sign of their warming relationship, with Israel recently calling the Saudi crown prince ‘a partner of Israel.’ ”

Joining Some Dots on the Skripal Case: Part 1 – An Official Story That Doesn’t Hold Water – by Rob Slane – http://www.theblogmire.com/joining-some-dots-on-the-skripal-case-part-1-an-official-story-that-doesnt-hold-water/ – “The reason is that the official story, put forward by the British Government, is wholly lacking in credibility. It has actually come as a surprise to me just how many people there are out there who don’t buy the official story. Anecdotally, I would say that those looking at the official narrative and wondering how on earth it stacks up includes many who would perhaps not normally question the official line on things… And so attempting to come up with another theory of what happened has nothing to do with advancing what is usually called a “conspiracy theory”. If the claims of the official story did match the facts, then advancing an entirely different theory could well be seen as a conspiracy theory. But since the claims made by the British Government and in the compliant media do not stack up, this is simply a case of seeking an alternative theory that tries to make more sense of the known facts.”

Council on Foreign Relations Tells Gov’t They “Have To” Use Propaganda on Americans – by Jay Syrmopoulos – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/06/council-on-foreign-relations-tells-govt-they-have-to-use-propaganda-on-americans.html – “…as former senior editor at the Washington Post, Richard Harwood, in a column entitled “Ruling Class Journalists,” approvingly described the Council as, ‘the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment in the United States.’.. Harwood admiringly wrote: ‘The membership of these journalists in the Council, however they may think of themselves, is an acknowledgment of their active and important role in public affairs and of their ascension into the American ruling class. They do not merely analyze and interpret foreign policy for the United States; they help make it…. They are part of that establishment whether they like it or not, sharing most of its values and worldviews.’.. ZeroHedge reported that Stengel’s personal bio site notes that he ‘helped create and oversee’ the Global Engagement Center at the State Department whose official mission is to ‘counter propaganda and disinformation from international terrorist organizations and foreign countries’ (with a “special focus on Russia”).’.. Stengel, who is a former high-level U.S. government official, head of the office for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the State Department from 2013 to 2016, and a regular pundit on MSNBC, explained: ‘Basically, every country creates their own narrative story and, you know, my old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the ‘chief propagandist’ job. We haven’t talked about propaganda… I’m not against propaganda. Every country does it, and they have to do it to their own population, and I don’t necessarily think it’s that awful.’ “

Specifically, a false flag chemical attack will be staged in a village near the oil field.”

California Turns Off the Water. You Will Not Be Able to Wash Clothes and Shower in the Same Day (w/Video 10min) – by JW Williams – https://needtoknow.news/2018/06/california-turns-off-water-will-not-able-wash-clothes-shower-day/ – “In this video report, Gary Gileno argues that, if California really did have a water shortage, why does it invite unlimited migrants? The California water shortage is greatly exaggerated for political purposes, which is the justification for more government control. It is a jarring fact that only 11% of available water is allocated for urban use, 41% goes to agriculture, and 48% is allocated to protect the environment. The federal government has control over that portion and requires most of it to flow into the Pacific Ocean!”

The roll out of 5G wireless service is ‘a massive health experiment,’ public health expert warns as cell companies install 800,000 towers across the US – by Natalie Rahhal – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5784487/The-roll-5G-wireless-service-massive-health-experiment-public-health-expert-warns-a.html – “According to Dr Joel Moskowitz, a public health professor at the University of California, Berkeley, MMWs could pose a very real danger… ‘The deployment of 5G, or fifth generation cellular technology, constitutes a massive experiment on the health of all species,’ he told Daily Mail Online… Because MMWs are weaker than microwaves, they are predominantly absorbed by the skin, meaning their distribution is quite focused there,.. ‘Since skin contains capillaries and nerve endings, MMW bio-effects may be transmitted through molecular mechanisms by the skin or through the nervous system,’ Dr Moskowitz writes on his blog… Dr Moskowitz is not alone in aprehensions… The International Society of Doctors for the Environment, its subsidiaries in 27 countries and more than 200 doctors and scientists are all calling for a stop to be put to the roll out of 5G, ‘due to concern that 5G radio frequency radiation will have adverse health effects,’ Dr Moskowitz says.” – Comment: Actual coverage of 5G dangers in the UK mainstream – not in the U.S.

The End Of Stimulus? (And The Start Of The Crash?) – by Chris Martenson – http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/the-end-of-stimulus-and-the-start-of-the-crash_05292018 – “If we’ve been in “recovery” for years now, as the central banks have been touting, then why has 2016-2108 seen the most stimulus ever injected into the system?.. History has taught us that we should trust or leaders’ actions far more than their words. And their actions at this time indicate panic… What is it that has them so worried? We should all ponder that question long and hard. I’m convinced that they know as well as we do that, once the over-inflated ““markets”” created by the central banks can no longer be sustained at their current nose-bleed heights, the damage will be extraordinary and unstoppable.”

Currently, ocular melanomas [2] are occurring in college students, which has medicine stumped [3] as to why such an ‘anomaly’ is happening… Well, it probably is happening because colleges and school premises often are dotted with cell towers and other high tech antenna arrays (paying ‘nice’ monthly rental fees), which impact human tissue, especially in the young.”

Colorado Set To Become First In U.S. To Use “Smart Pavement” To Monitor Drivers In Real-Time – by Kevin Samson – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/colorado-smart-pavement-monitor-drivers.html – “Integrated Roadways’ long-term goal with its smart pavement is not simply accident detection but a network that provides a collection of real-time services — such as road conditions and traffic alerts — to drivers in conventional cars or passengers riding in autonomous vehicles. Sylvester said the company hopes that its road technology will eventually generate business from trucking companies trying to minimize inefficiencies in fleet mobility, property developers seeking high-resolution traffic data and insurance companies trying to pinpoint accident risk with greater precision… ‘The eventual goal is to relieve the burden from the public of paying for road improvements and shift it to commercial enterprises,’ Sylvester said.”

WaPo Editors: We Have to Help Destroy Yemen to Save It – by Adam Johnson – https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/06/01/wapo-editors-we-have-help-destroy-yemen-save-it – “The idea that Obama and Trump offered the Saudis “limited” support is a glaring lie. The US’s support—from logistical support, to refueling, to selling $110 billion in arms, to political cover at the UN, to literally choosing targets on a map—has been crucial to carrying out the three-and-a-half-year campaign. Again, according to one of the most white-bread, establishment commentators, US support isn’t ancillary, it’s essential. Without it, there is no bombing campaign.”

Bolton Flunky Fleitz Raises Stakes for Iran – by Ray McGovern – https://consortiumnews.com/2018/06/01/bolton-flunky-fleitz-raises-stakes-for-iran/ – “Islamophobe & Bolton pal Fred Fleitz has been named chief of staff for the National Security Council. Fleitz was a danger a decade ago in the Bush administration and is even more so now, recalls Ray McGovern… On a recent TV appearance, I was asked about whistleblowing, but the experience brought back to mind a crystal-clear example of how, before the Iraq War, CIA careerists were assigned “two bosses” – CIA Director George Tenet and John Bolton, the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, the arch-neocon who had been thrust on an obedient Secretary of State Colin Powell… CIA “analyst” Frederick Fleitz took the instructions quite literally, bragging about being allowed to serve, simultaneously, ‘two bosses’ — and becoming Bolton’s “enforcer.” Fleitz famously chided a senior intelligence analyst at State for not understanding that it was the prerogative of policymakers like Bolton – not intelligence analysts – to “interpret” intelligence data.” (emphases added)

Pushing Russia this hard and this far and this long — using even the “Putin stole Crimea” hoax and other such hoaxes to justify ‘restoring’ a Cold War which was actually supposed to have ended when the Soviet Union’s communism did — suggests that Russia might soon need to respond in a direct military way, taking America’s war as the existential threat to Russian national sovereignty over Russia, that it is.”

Louisiana Becomes 25th US State to Pass Anti-BDS Lawhttps://unitedwithisrael.org/louisiana-becomes-25th-us-state-to-pass-anti-bds-law/ – “Louisiana’s Governor John Bel Edwards issued an executive order Tuesday prohibiting the state’s agencies from executing contracts with businesses involved in the anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement… The Times-Picayune reported that the order directs the state commissioner of administration, Jay Dardenne, to examine existing contracts with companies to determine if they are currently boycotting Israel or supporting those who do so… ‘The state of Louisiana unequivocally rejects the BDS campaign and stands firmly with Israel,’ the order reads… Edwards issued the order on the same night he held a special celebration honoring Israel’s 70th anniversary at the governor’s mansion.”

Israel To Redraw ‘Red Lines’, To Expand Operations In Syria: Mediahttps://southfront.org/israel-to-redraw-red-lines-to-expand-operations-in-syria-media/ – “Israel has notified Russia of its decision to redraw its Iran “red lines” and to expand its operations across Syria, the Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported on May 26… According to the report, Israel is going to expand its operations to the entirety of its northern neighbor’s territory rather than just the southern portion of Syria… According to some experts, the recent series of propaganda claims and Israeli strikes are clearly linked to the ongoing preparations of the Syrian Army to launch a military operation to regain the southern part of the country from militants.”

A window into the current information (disinfo) war: A Crisis in Intelligence: Unthinkable Consequences of Outsourcing U.S. Intel (Part 3) – by George Eliason – https://consortiumnews.com/2018/02/18/a-crisis-in-intelligence-unthinkable-consequences-of-outsourcing-u-s-intel-part-3/ – “Unmasking the shadowy PropOrNot outfit was a small part of showing how immoral people are using gray areas in the law to harass law-abiding citizens and strip them of their rights, income, and right to a free press through McCarthyite smear tactics. Because they haven’t been challenged, they have no problem crossing the line into criminality… What alternative media outlets that have been attacked by criminal groups like PropOrNot don’t know is there are laws and policies in place that protect civilians, journalists, and publications… However, spies for hire like Clint Watts, Andrew Weisburd, Jonathon Morgan, JM Berger, the Hamilton 68 Dashboard, the German Marshall Fund of the USA, The Alliance for Securing Democracy, Michael Chertoff, Eliot Higgins, Aric Toler, Bellingcat, The DFR Lab, Atlantic Council, UWC, and the UCCA can be enlisted to brand Vanessa Beeley as a traitor to the United Kingdom and a foreign agent… Yet, these are all in violation of Tallinn Rule 33 and 35A which prohibit targeting people you can’t identify clearly and attacking journalists. Targeting Beeley is a criminal act on their part… Once again the spies for hire have usurped government powers illegally.” – Comment: Excellent article, well worth the read.

Intel-based Core vPro totally and permanently hackablehttp://thebridgelifeinthemix.info/technology/cor-vpro/#sthash.PJe8HEvH.dpbs – “Real world use for Core vPro processors will involve the following : Accessing any PC anywhere, no matter what operating system is installed, even if it is physically disconnected from the internet. You see, Core vPro processors work in conjunction with Intel’s new Anti Theft 3.0, which put 3g connectivity into every Intel CPU after the Sandy Bridge version of the I3/5/7 processors. Users do not get to know about that 3g connection, but it IS there. You might think, I am not stupid so I will unplugged his router. Unfortunately, that won’t work, because anti theft 3.0 always has that 3g connection on also, even if the computer is turned off… And now the real reason for your finicky security habits will be known to the NSA you found a way to route photons to any place in the world without any sort of cable. You revolutionised communications. You were going public when you returned from your vacation, but thanks to your new Core vPro processors, a major communications firm is going to go public with your invention Before you get home, and your research will be deleted and replaced with criminal activity so you will be arrested when you get back and unable to speak about the theft of your invention. Fascism is Great.”

From the Catapulting-The-Propaganda Desk: Bellingcat Links High-Ranking Russian GRU Officer To Downing Of MH17https://www.rferl.org/a/netherlands-australia-to-hold-russia-legally-responsible-for-shooting-down-mh17/29250256.html – “THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Researchers from the British-based group Bellingcat have published a report that, for the first time, establishes what they say is the involvement of a high-ranking Russian military intelligence officer in connection with the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) over eastern Ukraine in 2014… The May 25 report comes a day after the Dutch-led international Joint Investigative Team (JIT) said it had concluded the Buk missile that downed the MH17 was fired by Russia’s 53rd Antiaircraft Missile Brigade from separatist-controlled territory in eastern Ukraine.” – Comment: Bellingcat, far from having a team of “researchers,” is a one-man operation by Elliot Higgins, literally operating from his couch in Leicester, UK, whom evidence shows is receiving funds from several Western intelligence-related sources. Higgins has been outed repeatedly for his work using lies and deception to shore up various Western and Nato propaganda narratives. If people were paying attention, how could such an obviously biased and discredited source be getting actual headlines citing his “organization in major commercial media outlets to bolster the lies coming out of the Netherlands “investigation” into the downing of MH17 in July 2014? See: Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat, Who is He? Everything You Need to Know…, ● So how is Bellingcat funded?, ● Media’s Beloved “Expert” Eliot Higgins – Wrong Again And Again And Again. Apparently there is a coordinated operation underway to support the low-intensity war against the breakaway Donbass republics in East Ukraine that is heating up now.

It all depends on your values – by The Saker – http://thesaker.is/it-all-depends-on-your-values/ – “If you want the Russian economy integrated into the western markets and financial sphere, if you believe that the correct economic path of development for Russia is western-style liberal capitalism,if you believe that the Zionist lobby in Russia does not exist or is not an issue, then you truly have cause to rejoice and, indeed, many have (including my friend Alexander Mercouris at The Duran)… But if you believe that morals, ethics should always prime so-called “pragmatic” considerations, if you believe that the correct path for Russia is to follow her own civilizational model, if you believe that there is a very influential and highly toxic Zionist lobby in Russia, then you have cause to worry… In an ideal world or, at least, a less crazy one, this choice should not be as stark, but with the Neocons in absolute control of the USA and the US foreign policy decided in the Likud offices in Jerusalem, and with Israel and the USA taking turns bombing Syria (even today), that choice will have to be made.”

RussiaGate Is Whirling Around in the Maelstrom, Awaiting the Final Blow from Trump – by James Howard Kunstler – https://russia-insider.com/en/russiagate-whirling-around-maelstrom-awaiting-final-blow-trump/ri23572 – “Picking up a trope conceived months back, the melodrama of US governance is looking more and more like Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, with the FBI as the doomed ship Pequod, with R. Mueller as Captain Ahab and D.J. Trump as the white whale. In the classic book, of course, the wounded whale finally sends the ship to the bottom, crew and all (but one), and swims away to the freedom of the deep blue sea.”

Is Emerging Market Turmoil Deutsche Bank’s “Black Swan?” – by Dave Kranzler – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/is-emerging-market-turmoil-deutsche-banks-black-swan.html – “On top of this, DB has enormous exposure via credit default swaps to the risky southern European financial systems. A good friend of mine has reason to believe that if Italy goes into a tail-spin, it could take DB down with it… In truth, we don’t know how bad the situation is inside DB because the financial reporting requirements imposed on banks have been substantially rolled-back over the last several years. However, really bad news began to leak out on DB about the time the LIBOR-OIS spread began to rise and the dollar began to rise quickly. The misdirection propaganda attributed this to corporate dollar repatriation connected to the Trump tax cuts. Now the cost to buy credit protection on DB debt is starting to soar. Credit default swaps have become the financial’s new ‘smoke alarm.’ ”

Russian Military On MH17 Investigation: Buk Missile “More Than Likely” Belongs To Ukrainehttps://southfront.org/russian-military-on-mh17-investigation-buk-missile-more-than-likely-belongs-to-ukraine/ – ” ‘The engine fragment that the Joint Investigation Team demonstrated last Thursday indicates that the cutoff date for keeping those missiles in operation was 2011… After that, all missiles from that year of manufacture were withdrawn from service, written off and scrapped. However, all this unequivocally applies only to Russian air defense units, which received and still receive the necessary weapons in working condition from the sole manufacturer located in Russia,’ the ministry added.”

US Imposes New Sanctions On Iran, Iran Vows To Continue Its ‘Path’https://southfront.org/us-imposes-new-sanctions-on-iran-iran-vows-to-continue-its-path/ – “These sanctions come after the May 21 “basic requirements” announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He threatened Iran with “the strongest sanctions in history” if Tehran refuses to comply 12 demands of a new nuclear agreement that could permit Iran to avoid sanctions, ILNA news agency reported… Iranian President Hassan Rouhani rejected “basic requirements”, stressing that Iran would continue its “path”. He stressed that the era when the US could “decide for the world” had finished: ‘Who are you to decide for Iran and the world? The world today does not accept America to decide for the world, as countries are independent … that era is over … We will continue our path with the support of our nation’, Rouhani stated.”

George Soros pouring MILLIONS of dollars into California elections – Persistent globalist George Soros seeks to increase criminality a state already severely weakened by excessively burdensome liberal attitudes and policies – by Seraphim Hanisch – http://theduran.com/george-soros-pouring-millions-of-dollars-into-california-elections/ – “Fox News reported on Friday May 25 that former Hungarian billionaire and (now) US citizen George Soros is spending many millions of dollars to bolster extremely liberal candidates in California’s upcoming District Attorney elections. There are 56 DA positions in play for the June 5th election… Fox reported that Soros and other wealthy liberal donors are supporting the election of prosecutors who would favor a lower incarceration rate, crackdowns on police misconduct and changes in a bail system that has been held by these donors and other activists to discriminate against the poor.”

Informant or spy? How the FBI targeted Donald Trump. Part 2 (w/Video 19min) – http://theduran.com/informant-or-spy-how-the-fbi-targeted-donald-trump-part-2/

From the Ministry-Of-Truth Desk: MH17 downed by Russian military missile system, say investigators – by Shaun Walker – https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/may/24/mh17-downed-by-russian-military-missile-system-say-investigators – “Russian officials have denied all involvement in the incident, and on Thursday the defence ministry repeated these denials, claiming that no Russian missile had ever crossed into Ukraine. Kremlin-linked media outlets have floated a range of implausible theories suggesting Ukraine was responsible for shooting down the plane. Russia has used its veto in the UN to prevent an international tribunal from being set up to determine guilt, meaning any eventual trial would be held in the Netherlands under Dutch law.” – Comment: The “Joint Investigation Team” have listed a set of supposedly-damning evidence that “proves” official Russian military involvement in the downing of MH-17. However, they have not made any of it public. The Guardian says point blank that all of the explanations offered by the Russians in the wake of the disaster are “implausible.” However, after exhaustive investigation of the evidence available on the web, it’s clear to me that the facts around the crash are not consistent with a surface-to-air misslle being responsible. There is much evidence that has not be considered in this investigation that reveals many anomalous factors in these events that don’t conform to the official narrative. But “It was The Russians.”

Scientists warn that 5G tech found in WiFi street lamps is causing insomnia, nosebleeds, and stillbirths – by Vicki Batts – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-22-scientists-warn-5g-tech-found-in-wifi-street-lamps-is-causing-insomnia-nosebleeds-stillbirths.html – “Across the pond, one brave man is speaking out about a sudden spike in health problems he believes are related to LED streetlamps that purportedly emit 5G radiation. In Gateshead, a town in Northern England, citizens are reporting an array of disturbing side effects including insomnia, nosebleeds and even stillbirth — and Mark Steele has something to say about it… As usual, government officials are already engaging in full disaster-control, publicly decrying any health risks that may be linked to their radiation-emitting streetlights. In a Facebook post, Gateshead Council declared that “certain individuals are frightening local people with false stories” about the threat of EMF radiation… As is typical, uncomfortable truths are labeled “fake news” by the government. Gateshead officials continued their propaganda post by declaring that there was “no scientific basis or credible evidence” to support the claims that the LED streetlights were causing health problems city-wide… The government further claimed that the LED streetlights do not operate on a 5G network. But as Mr. Steele explained, ‘The transmitter operates at 868 – 870 MHz. That is a specific 5G spectrum.’ ”

Amazon’s Plan to Help Police Identify Citizens in Real-Time and Predict Crimes – by MassPrivateIhttps://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/amazons-plan-to-help-police-identify-citizens-in-real-time-and-predict-crimes.html – Amazon Rekognition performs real-time recognition of persons of interest from camera live streams against your private database of face metadata… (Source)… A private database of face metadata is just a fancy way of saying private watch lists… Amazon’s facial recognition program is being sold to police departments for as little as $6.00 a month. The above video confirms what I have been warning people about, ‘smart cities’ are really police cam-share programs in disguise… How are police ‘conserving the peace’ by creating a network of 10,000 spying neighbors and installing DHS’s, I.R.I.S. surveillance cameras everywhere?”

Hell Hath No Fury Like Weather Geoengineering – by Catherine Frompovich – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/hell-hath-no-fury-like-weather-geoengineering.html – “During the last two weeks in the area where I live, SE Pennsylvania, we experienced an inordinate weather pattern that had everyone—bar none—talking about it and complaining how extraordinarily oppressive it was: Torrential rain daily with no let up, plus no sunshine for days on end!.. Question: Was that a subtle food-growing interference technique, since this is the time farmers in this area normally would start plowing and seeding field crops. Growing fields were lakes! Is weather geoengineering another method for introducing what can be considered a ‘natural phenomenon’ causing famine because crops drown in the growing fields? In this area, farmers have experienced some of that in recent years. One year the pumpkin crop was lost!.. Physicians I know and network with began telling me how patients were negatively impacted by that oppressive weather pattern, which apparently was generated by a bank of scalar clouds sent in to stall over and supersaturate the region with apparent ‘chemtrail-created’ toxic rain clouds.”

Watch: Activists Face Up To 60 Years In Prison For Rescuing A Dying Piglet From Factory Farm (w/Video 3min)- by Alanna Ketler – http://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/05/23/watch-activists-face-up-to-60-years-in-prison-for-rescuing-a-dying-piglet-from-factory-farm/ – “When Lily, the rescued piglet was found she was about 1/5th the size of the other piglets and was in desperate need of some care and attention. The protestors rescued this piglet, gave her a bath, gave her a home and most importantly showed her some love and compassion. This story even made it to the New York Times as many people were moved by this heroic act performed by this activist group. The problem? Smithfield factory farms were less than amused and have now taken it upon themselves to convince the Attorney General of Utah to charge the group with burglary, theft, rioting and even a pattern of unlawful activity.”

US Issues China Health Alert for ‘Abnormal’ Sound Sensationshttps://www.voanews.com/a/us-issues-alert-in-china-abnormal-sensations-of-sound-/4406189.html – “The U.S. State Department issued a health alert Wednesday for its citizens in China in response to what it said was a recent report of a U.S. government employee in Guangzhou experiencing ‘subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure.’.. The U.S. Embassy in Beijing said the employee was sent back to the United States for evaluation and diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury… Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described it as a “serious medical incident.”.. It advised anyone who experiences “unusual acute auditory or sensory phenomena accompanied by unusual sounds or piercing noises” to not seek out the source, but instead to move to a location where they are not present… The State Department ‘is working to determine the cause and impact of the incident,’ spokesperson Heather Nauert said. ‘The State Department will be sending a medical team to Guangzhou early next week to conduct baseline medical evaluations of all Consulate Guangzhou employees who request it.’ ”

Democratic Party Is Dead – False Flags Are the Last Resort – by Dave Hodges – http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/democratic-party-is-dead-false-flags-are-the-last-resort/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=democratic-party-is-dead-false-flags-are-the-last-resort – “Not only does the Democratic Party have to cheat to win, they need control over the voting machines. Conventional wisdom states that the ceiling for Democratic cheating in elections is about 10-12%. Many election experts that I speak to state that the voting fraud ceiling was reached both in the Democratic primary and the general election in 2016. In the general election, I documented numerous instances of double voting by democrats in multiple and adjacent states, illegal aliens voting as they were bussed to polling places in places like New York City and this was sponsored by elected public officials and of course, the voting machines of George Soros tipped the vote significantly and was responsible for Hillary’s primary election victory and it almost stole the general election from Donald Trump.”

North Korea declares its nuclear test site disabled hours before Trump cancels summit – by Anna Fifield – https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/north-korea-expected-to-close-nuclear-test-site-despite-squabbles/2018/05/24/37968082-5f0e-11e8-8c93-8cf33c21da8d_story.html – “North Korea claimed Thursday it destroyed its key nuclear weapons testing site, setting off explosions to collapse underground tunnels hours before President Trump called off a planned June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un… The North had used the site, tucked into a remote and mountainous area, to detonate six increasingly large nuclear bombs over 11 years. The apparent demolition was widely seen as a diplomatic gesture toward Washington, even as it remained unclear whether the made-for-TV blasts marked any significant change in the North’s nuclear capabilities… Now, however, the timing of Trump’s cancellation is likely to add new tensions and uncertainty on the Korean Peninsula after groundbreaking overtures by the North with the United States and ally South Korea.”

Japan Leading the World in Exposing Fraud with Gardasil HPV Vaccine Injuries and Deaths – by Vera Sharav – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/japan-leading-the-world-in-exposing-fraud-with-gardasil-hpv-vaccine-injuries-and-deaths/ – “Following a public hearing (February 2014), at which scientific evidence was presented by independent scientists [2], the Japanese government, not only rescinded its recommendation that girls receive the HPV vaccine, but established guidelines and special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the vaccine… It is a scenario that Merck, GSK, and vaccine stakeholders globally are extremely anxious to suppress… The Merck-commissioned, CSIS report, co-authored by Dr. Larson, paints a picture of an all-out war over media coverage – not over the high rate of serious adverse reactions… The authors resort to the usual tactic of discrediting vaccine-injured individuals; they dismissed the serious health effects suffered by girls and young women following vaccination, as trivial… The CSIS report presents the entire issue as an epidemic fueled by Internet rumors and ‘vaccine hesitators.’ ”

France: Macron Buries Plan to Rehabilitate ‘No-Go Zones‘ – by Soeren Kern – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12362/france-macron-no-go-zones – “President Emmanuel Macron has substantially scaled back plans to rehabilitate France’s banlieues — poverty-ridden and crime-infested neighborhoods with large Muslim populations — and has instead called on local mayors and civil society groups to find solutions at the grassroots level… The policy reversal follows weeks of internal debate about whether a top-down or bottom-up approach is the best way to improve life in the troubled banlieues, which are breeding grounds for Islamic fundamentalism and are often referred to as no-go zones because of the dangerous conditions there for police and other representatives of state authority.”

IT’S CRASHING DOWN! Congress Just Made LEGENDARY Move to CRUSH The DEEP STATE Rats Once and For ALL! – from Gary Franchi (7 min)

Argentina Is Suddenly on the Verge of ANOTHER Economic Collapse – by Daisy Luther – https://www.theorganicprepper.com/argentina-economic-collapse/ – “President Mauricio Macri, a business tycoon who vowed to reincorporate Argentina into the global economy, has asked the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for a hefty credit line of at least $19.7 billion to see the country through the rest of his term, which ends in 2019… When the IMF gets involved, it tends to be the beginning of the end, as we saw in Greece, whose crisis was at its peak between 2009 and 2016… The unexpected move surprised investors and stoked Argentines’ fears of a repeat of the nation’s devastating 2001-2002 economic collapse. Many here blame IMF-imposed austerity measures for worsening that crisis, which impoverished millions and turned Argentina into a global pariah after the government defaulted on a record $100 billion in debt…Word of a potential bailout sent thousands of angry Argentines into the streets this month, some with signs declaring “enough of the IMF.” (source)”

New legislation seeks to define anti-Semitism in US education system – Congress members say bipartisan bill will provide schools with tools to fight expressions of hatred – by Eric Cortellessa – https://www.timesofisrael.com/new-legislation-seeks-to-define-anti-semitism-in-us-education-system/ – “Under the guidance, anti-Semitism is said to include ‘a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews.’ Acts of hatred can have both ‘rhetorical and physical manifestations’ that are ‘directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property,’ as well as ‘Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.’.. It also incorporates manifestations that target Israel, particularly attacks that assail Israeli actions as representative of “Jewish collectivity.”.. The legislators said the Department of Education currently lacks a firm direction on how to identify and define anti-Semitism, and that, should the bill be signed into law, it would give the agency the tools to recognize when actions violate US anti-discrimination laws… The measure has received pushback from opponents who contend it could violate First Amendment protections for students, who would face possible criminal charges for expressing views critical of Israel.” (emphasis added)

Israeli military shot over 500 Palestinians in the head during Gaza protestshttp://mondoweiss.net/2018/05/military-palestinians-protests/ – ” Health Ministry: ‘Israeli army killed 112 Palestinians, injured 13,190 since March 30th’ – “IMEMC 21 May — Dr. Ashraf al-Qedra, the spokesperson of the Palestinian Health Ministry in the Gaza Strip, has reported Sunday that Israeli soldiers have killed 112 Palestinians, and injured 13,190 since the Great Return March protests started on the Palestinian Land Day, March 30th, 2018.

New DARPA Program Plans To Patrol Cities With AI Drones – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-21/new-darpa-program-plans-patrol-cities-ai-drones – “In other words, the Pentagon is developing a program of high-tech cameras mounted on drones and other robots that monitor cities, which enable identification and discrimination between civilians and terrorists through machine learning computers… DARPA provides a simple scenario of what a URSA engagement would look like: ‘A static sensor located near an overseas military installation detects an individual moving across an urban intersection and towards the installation outside of normal pedestrian pathways. An unmanned aerial system (UAS) equipped with a loudspeaker delivers a warning message. The person is then observed running into a neighboring building. Later, URSA detects an individual emerging from a different door at the opposite end of the building, but confirms it is the same person and sends a different UAS to investigate.’ ”

Police are investigating the various crimes, but no arrests have been reported.”

Deutsche Bank To Fire Another 10,000 Bankers, Bringing Total Layoffs To 20% Of Workforce – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-14/deutsche-bank-fire-another-10000-bankers-bringing-total-layoffs-20-workforce – The hits for Deutsche Bank just keep on coming. One day after a report that the German lender has imposed a hiring freeze in the latest bid to reassure investors that it has expenses under control and is stemming the outflow of cash, moments ago Reuters reported that Deutsche Bank’s finance chief told his staff that job cuts at the bank could be double that planned, a step that could remove 10,000 further employees… Such cuts would likely take many years but setting such a goal could reassure investors that the bank is determined to tackle costs that sources said the European Central Bank sees as bloated. Unless, of course, they are forced to cut much faster. If 10,000 job losses were ultimately to follow the 9,000 announced by management in October 2015, roughly one in five of the bank’s workforce around the globe would be affected.” Note: DB shares have dropped over 30% in the last year, and are falling fast now. The corporation holds somewhere between 43 and 80 TRILLION in gross derivatives exposure. They say in their reports that total derivatives “positive value” is around 500 million Euros, and is hedged in other ways well below that. They have been fined for lying about the amount of derivatives they’ve sold and are liable for. In the event of some kind of credit crunch / market meltdown the damage would likely be more than fatal.

Special Service’s Agent: Attack On Russia is Being Prepared – by Andrey Afanasyev – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49471.htm – “Destabilizing the situation in Central Asia, the US and its allies will achieve several goals at once. First, in this way, Washington can distract Moscow and Tehran from Syria. Secondly, if the operation succeeds, a focus of instability will be created along the path of the One-Belt-One-Road project, which is designed to strengthen the economic and logistical integration of Eurasia. Afghanistan also borders Iran in the west, which opens a new front against Tehran if necessary.is extremely high. It will happen synchronously with the exacerbation in several directions. Starting with economic pressure through new sanctions, ending with “color revolutions” that will continue in the post-Soviet space, and direct aggression from American networks. Obviously, the United States did not seize Afghanistan, by rigging its military dictatorship there, in order to build democracy and civil society there. This is a springboard for the creation of terrorist networks, with the help of which the US is preparing an aggression against Iran and Russia.”

Con #2: Oil is Not a Fossil Fuel – It is ‘Renewable’ – The following is from John Truman Wolfe’s e-book, The Anatomy of a Con Job – https://anticorruptionsociety.com/anatomy-of-a-con-job/con-2-oil-is-not-a-fossil-fuel-it-is-renewable/ – “…we return momentarily to the early days of the Cold War when an isolated Soviet Union tasked their top scientists to identify the actual source of oil. Not a weekend homework assignment. After considerable research, in 1956, Russian scientist Professor Vladimir Porfir’yev announced that ‘crude oil and natural petroleum gas have no intrinsic connection with biological matter originating near the surface of the earth. They are primordial [originating with the earth’s formation] materials which have been erupted from great depths.’.. If your eyeballs didn’t fall out when you read that, you might want to read it again… He said oil doesn’t come from anything biologic, not, as conventional wisdom dictates, from the fossilized remains of dinosaurs and/or ancient plant matter. It comes from very deep in the earth and is created by a biochemical reaction that subjected hydrocarbons (elements having carbon and hydrogen) to extreme heat and intense pressure during the earth’s formation… Russians referred to this oil (any oil, really) as “abiotic oil” because it is not created from the decomposition of biological life forms, but rather from the chemical process continually occurring inside the earth… I know, easy for Porfir’yev to say. But it turns out it was more than just a theory.”

CO2 Is Not Causing Global Warming – by Dr. Tim Ball – “A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses: it is an idea that possesses the mind.-Robert Bolton “At what point does misrepresentation of facts become lies? A general definition of the word lie is “an intentionally false statement” but this applies to a single statement and the key word is “intentional”. A single misunderstanding or a misstatement can occur, but what if there are a series of misstatements from an individual or group? What happens when many statements are proved incorrect, but they continue to repeat them or fail to acknowledge they were false?.. There is a long and growing list of statements by promoters of human CO2 induced global warming that have proven incorrect. Yet they continue to push their claim by ignoring the evidence and diverting attention with new specious and spurious claims. Most politicians and mainstream media continue to believe because they don’t understand, or don’t want to understand for political reasons. However, even they must understand when the predictions are consistently wrong. Science is simply defined as the ability to predict, so the failure invalidates the science even if you don’t understand the science. People who persist only have a blind belief and as the adage says, there are none so blind as those who will not see. What a terrifying basis for devastating and totally unnecessary energy and economic policies.”

Letter from Iran: Mr. Trump, you have been served – Top officials, including former CIA officers, Pentagon officials, US Army officers and former diplomats demand explanation of Israeli actions – by Pepe Escobar – http://www.atimes.com/article/letter-from-iran-mr-trump-you-have-been-served/ – “In a letter addressed to President Donald Trump, with copies to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and the UN Security Council, four top former officials at the highest level of the US government have given him legal notice about his duty to advise the US Congress, the ICC and the UNSC, among others, about Israel’s actions coinciding with the ’70th anniversary of the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes.’.. The letter is signed, among others, by former CIA operations officer Phil Giraldi; former Pentagon official Michael Maloof; former US Army officer and State Department coordinator for counterterrorism contractor Scott Bennett; and former diplomat and author of Visas For al-Qaeda: CIA Handouts That Rocked The World, Michael Springmann.”

When 43% of Americans Can’t Pay for Food and Rent, We Can Safely Say the Economic Collapse Is HERE – by Daisy Luther – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/when-43-of-americans-cant-pay-for-food-and-rent-we-can-safely-say-the-economic-collapse-is-here.html – “This doesn’t mean that you failed financially – it means that circumstances can affect you, just like they do everyone else, no matter how careful you are… Before my daughter’s illness, I was doing everything “right”: ● I had enough money in my emergency fund to carry me through 3 lean months, ● I had numerous credit cards with zero balances, ● My only debt was my car, ● My kids are going to school without student loans, ● I opted out of health insurance because it was more financially practical to pay cash (and I still agree with that decision)… Everything was great….

Ignoring the Astana Talks, the US Is Increasing Its Military Presence in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor Province – by Peter Korzun – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/05/17/ignoring-astana-talks-us-increasing-its-military-presence-syria-deir-ez-zor-province.html – “Despite its recent claims to the contrary, the US is hunkering down in Syria for the long haul. The US, Saudi Arabia, and France have already discussed the possibility of joint actions against Iran. The administration is pressing its Arab allies to do more. French forces are already operating in Deir ez-Zor together with the SDF… The US buildup in northeastern Syria is important for cutting off any direct land route from Tehran across to the Mediterranean… It is symbolic that the United States was not present at the Astana round of talks on May 14-15. It shows that Washington is no longer interested in de-escalation zones. It wants a divided Syria, with a new, pro-US entity on the map of the Middle East. It is creating local governing bodies that operate independently from Damascus, with enough money flowing in to keep them functional. And it would like to see other parts of Syria plunge into an all-against-all war.”

Canada Supreme Court Orders New Trial for Non-vaccinating Parents Accused of Son’s Death – New Evidence Points to Cover-up of Medical Malpractice – http://healthimpactnews.com/2018/canada-supreme-court-orders-new-trial-for-non-vaccinating-parents-accused-of-sons-death-new-evidence-points-to-cover-up-of-medical-malpractice/ – “On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, justices in the highest court in the land deliberated for only a few minutes before issuing their unanimous decision. The Court could have waited months to render a decision, but Chief Justice Richard Wagner said that the consensus was that it was “appropriate to release the decision as soon as possible.” – Thus they gave a rare verdict from the bench on the same day that arguments were heard. Justice Michael Moldaver read the decision, stating that they would: ‘allow the appeal, quash the convictions, and order a new trial.’ (Source)… They found that the records previously released had been cherry-picked in order to present a particular picture of the events surrounding Ezekiel’s illness and death. Once they were able to examine the additional records, a very different picture emerged – one that supports the parents’ version of events… Even so, the family does not have all of the records. There are at least 30 pages missing, covering at least an hour and 15 minutes of time that little Ezekiel was under medical care, away from his parents… The investigators were able to piece together some events from the notes of a doctor who was on a call with the medical team who were with the child… It was not until these records were obtained that the Stephans learned that their little boy suffered 3 heart attacks between the time the ambulance picked him up and he arrived by helicopter at another hospital… …a tear in the trachea is evident in the same x-ray. Upon further investigation we found autopsy photos where a deep gouge in the pleura covering Ezekiel’s spinal column is present directly under the tear in the trachea… This tear would result in aspirant, that was identified in the 911 call transcripts, leaking into Ezekiel’s thoracic cavity and resulting in a massive lung infection that the medical examiner would list as one of the causes of death.”

Regarding volcanic activity in Hawaii – the Hawaiian islands “hotspot” is not in the middle of a tectonic plate, it’s in the middle of a spreading ocean floor (spreading out in the Pacific from the West coast of the Americas). All of the oceans of the world have come into being in the last 200 million years. It’s documented that the rock in the floor of the oceans is ALL 200 million years old or less, and get’s younger as it approaches the rifts where it is continuing to grow. The Earth has doubled in mass in only the last 65 million years. For a very well done 10 minute video that graphically demonstrates this growth, go here: Neal Adams – Science: 01 – Conspiracy: Earth is Growing!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJfBSc6e7QQ – For more of Neal Adams work supporting these scientific observations, go here: Growing Universe Videos.

Making Sense of Russian Political Ambiguities – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/making-sense-of-russian-political-ambiguities/ – “During WWII the German military usually performed better than the Soviet one on the tactical level, but the Soviets were superior on the operational and strategic levels. We all know how that war ended. If you want to read a good analysis and debunking of the “Putin caved in” nonsense, I recommend the article ”Russia Betrayed Syria”: Geopolitics through the eyes of a fearful “pro-Russia” Westerner” by Ollie Richardson… The other extreme is to deny, against all evidence, that there is a problem or that mistakes have been made. That kind of stubborn flag-waving is actually unhelpful as mistakes are inevitable, and the first step towards mitigating them is to recognize them. The extreme version of that kind of flag-waving (pseudo-)patriotism is to denounce a person brining up problems as a traitor or a defeatist… It is with all this in mind that I would like to revisit what has taken place and try to gauge what the real-world consequences of these PR events might be.”

Except for the confirmed case in Mdbandaka, the other cases have been in Bikoro, a remote, northwestern area that is very hard to reach… The Ebola virus is endemic in Congo, and despite Congo’s experience with the disease, the difference between this one and previous outbreaks is the location… Bikoro lies near two major rivers that could transport infected people to urban areas including Kinshasa and Brazzaville. Mbandaka is also on the Congo River about 4,000 kilometers north of Kinshasa, the capital of the DRC, whose population is roughly ten million.” – Comment: I sure hope that Trump is on top of this one…

Based on 2016 data, there were 34.7 million households in that group — double the 16.1 million that are in actual poverty, project director Stephanie Hoopes tells Axios.”

“Ukraine should blow up Putin’s Crimea bridge,” unhinged Washington Examiner advocates terrorismhttp://theduran.com/ukraine-should-blow-up-putins-crimea-bridge-unhinged-washington-examiner-advocates-terrorism/ – “Russian President Vladimir Putin opened the Kerch Strait Bridge connecting Crimea, Ukraine, with mainland Russia on Tuesday…Ukraine should now destroy elements of the bridge… While that course of action would be an escalation against Putin and one that would almost certainly spark Russian retaliation, this bridge is an outrageous affront to Ukraine’s very credibility as a nation. Of course, from Putin’s perspective, that’s the whole point. The bridge cost Russia’s near-bankrupt government billions of dollars, but it offers Putin a formal physical and psychological appropriation of Ukrainian territory… Fortunately, Ukraine has the means to launch air strikes against the bridge in a manner that would render it at least temporarily unusable. Because of its significant length, the Ukrainian air force could strike the bridge while mitigating the risk of casualties by those traversing it.”

Bolton Emerges as Potential Wrecking Ball for Trump’s Kim Summit – by Toluse Olorunnipa – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-17/bolton-emerges-as-potential-wrecking-ball-for-trump-s-kim-summit – “In recent weeks, Bolton has said on multiple occasions that the U.S. wants North Korea to follow Libya’s model, which required complete nuclear dismantlement before Qaddafi received any benefits in return… ‘Yes, I think that’s what denuclearization means,’’ Bolton said last month on Fox News when asked if North Korea would have to give up its entire nuclear program before any concessions by the U.S. ‘We have very much in mind the Libya model from 2003, 2004.’.. Qaddafi was killed by NATO-backed rebels (actually he was killed by an assassination team sent in by the Western invaders) in 2011, two years after the last remnants of his nuclear program were removed. While U.S. officials have sought to make public assurances that they don’t seek Kim Jong Un’s ouster, Bolton’s repeated references to Libya have undermined that message.”

Medics in Gaza report Israel forces using devastating ‘butterfly bullet’https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20180503-medics-in-gaza-report-israel-forces-using-devastating-butterfly-bullet/ – “Twenty-four Palestinians ‘have had their limbs amputated since the March of Great Return mass protests started on March 30’, according to Al Jazeera:‘Medics on the ground say Israeli forces are shooting at demonstrators with a new type of round – never seen before – known as the ‘butterfly bullet’, which explodes upon impact, pulverising tissue, arteries and bone, while causing severe internal injuries,’ the report said… All 24 amputees were shot by Israeli snipers with a “single explosive bullet”, including journalists Yaser Murtaja and Ahmad Abu Hussein, both “shot in the abdomen”… ‘All of their internal organs were totally destroyed, pulverised,’ said Ashraf Al-Qidra, Gaza’s health ministry spokesperson. The bullets are the deadliest the Israeli army has ever used, he added… ‘Normally, a regular bullet breaks the leg [upon impact]. But these bullets create massive wounds, indicating that an explosion happened inside the body. It’s an expanding bullet. It pulverises the leg, and the leg gets cut off [as a result],’ ” (emphasis added)

I was at the Gaza border, we did all we could to avoid killing – by Kinley Tur-Paz – http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/i-was-at-the-gaza-border-we-did-all-we-could-to-avoid-killing/ – “I was on our side of the fence but I could see and hear and understand everything. I want to testify from my firsthand knowledge, not a theoretical point of view. Because I was there… I want to testify that what I saw and heard was a tremendous, supreme effort from our side to prevent, in every possible way, Palestinian deaths and injuries… Of course, the primary mission was to prevent hundreds of thousands of Gazans from infiltrating into our territory. That kind of invasion would be perilous, mortally dangerous, to the nearby communities; would permit terrorists disguised as civilians to enter our kibbutz and moshav communities, and would leave us with no choice but to target every single infiltrator. That’s why our soldiers were directed to prevent infiltration, in a variety of ways, using live ammunition only as a last resort.” (emphasis added)

Damascus denied the White House’s charges.” (emphasis added)

Teen Sent to Prison (for 13 Years) for Defending Home from Intruders—Because The Intruders Were Cops – by Rachel Blevins – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/teen-sent-to-prison-for-defending-home-from-intruders-because-the-intruders-were-cops.html – “When a SWAT team broke down the door and charged into the Harrell family’s house in the early morning hours of April 14, 2016, they claimed that the intrusive operation was justified, because they believed 18-year-old Tyler Harrell was running a drug ring out of his parents’ home… When Tyler Harrell was woken up by what he believed were burglars breaking into his home, he did what many gun owners would do, and he grabbed his firearm and confronted the intruders. He used his legally-owned AK-47, and while he did not kill any of the officers, he did wound one officer by shooting him in the knee… Hours after the shooting, police confirmed that “another SWAT team member returned fire, but did not hit Harrell, who surrendered to police within minutes,” indicating that as soon as Harrell realized he was firing at police officers, he stopped and let them arrest him without a fight… However, it was the testimony from Officer James Pittman that apparently pulled at the heartstrings of jury members. He was the only person injured by Harrell’s gunfire, and he said the bullet wound in his leg kept him from playing with his kids now and would force him to get knee replacement surgery one day… Pittman also criticized the “Not Guilty” verdict from another Texas case in which a homeowner shot and wounded three police officers when they initiated a no-knock raid on his house. Ray Rosas spent nearly two years in jail awaiting his trial, and his actions were ruled justified based on the fact that he was acting in self-defense and did not know the intruders he was shooting were police officers… Rosas was acquitted, despite the fact that 11 police officers testified against him. However, in the case of Tyler Harrell, his lawyer argued that the 18 SWAT team members who attended court in tactical gear to show their support for Officer Pittman, further demonized Harrell in the eyes of the jury… The pressure worked, and while the jury determined that Tyler Harrell was not guilty of attempted capital murder or aggravated assault on a public servant, he was found guilty of aggravated assault and sentenced to 13 years and six months in prison, and a fine of $7,000.” (emphasis added)

Sweden in Free Fall – by Judith Bergman – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12295/sweden-free-fall – “The Swedish government, however, seems undeterred by the risks of more potential gang rapes and migrant crimes. It has proposed legislation that will allow 9,000 unaccompanied and mainly male minors — approximately 7,000 of whom have reportedly turned out to be older than 18 and are thus not minors at all — who have had their asylum applications rejected, and who should have been deported, to get temporary residence permits in Sweden, if they plan to attend high school or are already enrolled in one. Notably, even those among the 9,000 whose identities are unverified — presumably because they have no papers — will be allowed to stay.”

Reports Indicate Secret FBI and CIA Mole Spying on Trump Campaign – by Kristina Wong – http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/05/15/reports-indicate-fbi-cia-secret-source-spying-trump-campaign/ – “Such a source was first confirmed last week by leakers to the Washington Post. The leakers told the Post that senior FBI and national intelligence officials tried to stop House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes from receiving information that could ‘endanger a top-secret intelligence source.’.. The leakers also revealed the source is a ‘U.S. citizen who has provided intelligence to the CIA and FBI.’.. They also revealed that providing the information about the source could ‘damage relationships with other countries that serve as U.S. intelligence partners’… Wall Street Journal‘s Kimberley Strassel, who believes she has identified the source based on leaks and her own reporting, told Fox News on Friday, ‘It does look as though indeed, there was an FBI attempt — a successful one, to basically go out and spy with a human asset on the Trump campaign.’.. ‘When the FBI talks about a source, the talk about someone who is an average citizen who uses their credentials, their job as a way of spying for the agency,’ she said. ‘We can take that to mean that there was somebody interacting with the Trump campaign and reporting back to the FBI, which means the FBI was using human intelligence to spy on a presidential campaign.’ ”

North Korea threatens to cancel summit with Trump over military exercises – by Hyung-Jin Kim and Foster Klug – http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-trump-north-korea-summit-20180515-story.html – “North Korea on Wednesday canceled a high-level meeting with South Korea and threatened to scrap a historic summit next month between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over military exercises between Seoul and Washington that Pyongyang has long claimed are invasion rehearsals… The surprise declaration, which came in a pre-dawn dispatch in North Korea’s state media, appears to cool what had been an unusual flurry of outreach from a country that last year conducted a provocative series of weapons tests that had many fearing the region was on the edge of war… The statement was released hours before the two Koreas were to meet at a border village to discuss setting up talks aimed at reducing military tension along the world’s most heavily armed border and restarting reunions between families separated by the Korean War… The North’s Korean Central News Agency called the two-week-long Max Thunder drills, which began Monday and reportedly include about 100 aircraft, an ‘intended military provocation’ and an ‘apparent challenge’ to an April summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, when the rival leaders met on their border and agreed to reduce animosity and set up more high-level exchanges.”

john.erik: Perhaps it’s easier for some folks to “reveal their inner thoughts” to a machine, but they could just as easily do that to a diary, as people have done for millenia. A machine is not conscious (and never will be) and is incapable of deep listening or empathy. I suspect that people who accept AI technology as their only available emotional support will be on a downward slope to a declining quality of life.

An “Audible Gasp” Was Heard When The Chicago Fed Unveiled Its “Solution” To The Pension Problem – by Mark Glennon – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-12/audible-gasp-was-heard-when-chicago-fed-unveiled-its-solution-pension-problem – “An audible gasp went out in the breakout room I was in at last month’s pension event cosponsored by The Civic Federation and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. That was when a speaker from the Chicago Fed proposed levying, across the state and in addition to current property taxes, a special property assessment they estimate would be about 1% of actual property value each year for 30 years… Evidently, that wasn’t reality-shock enough. This week the Chicago Fed published that proposal formally. It’s linked here… Property taxes in many Illinois communities already exceed 3%, 4% and even 5% of home values. Across Illinois, the average is a sky-high 2.67 percent, the highest in the nation.”

Russia in Flurry of Diplomatic Activity Over Iran Deal – by Charles Maynes – https://www.voanews.com/a/russia-in-flurry-of-diplomatic-activity-over-iran-deal/4392131.html

For the Week of 5/7/18:

What else is Washington hiding about US participation in Yemen? – The recent news about Green Berets deployed along the Saudi border highlights the ever-growing U.S. role. So, what else is Washington not disclosing about the US in Yemen? – by Randi Nord – http://www.thelastamericanvagabond.com/top-news/what-else-washington-hiding-about-us-participation-yemen/ – “A U.S. Army Lieutenant Now Serves for the United Arab Emirates in Yemen — Seriously… This week, Buzzfeed reported that a former U.S. Army lieutenant now serves for the United Arab Emirates. Prior to joining the Emiratis, Stephen Toumajan served as a lieutenant colonel for the United States throughout most of his career… Although Buzzfeed broke the story, this information comes from Toumajan’s own admissions as well as an Emirati’s government website. The U.A.E. speaks highly of Toumajan as “his excellency” and promoted him from his previous U.S. Army lieutenant position. He now serves as a commander for the U.A.E. Joint Aviation Command manning helicopters… Depending on who’s asking, Toumajan may deny his official status — it is, after all, a very gray area legality-wise. When it came to a recent child custody hearing, the American Emirati commander quickly back-peddled on his official involvement in the foreign military… The United States isn’t supposed to have any troops stationed in Yemen. Washington maintains that its role in Yemen involves two key goals: supporting the Saudi coalition and countering al-Qaeda influence… Last summer, Emirati troops greeted U.S. soldiers in Yemen at a remote airport in eastern Yemen. Together, they conducted a special mission to push AQAP militants out of key oil fields. Now, the Emiratis and U.S. occupy some of Yemen’s vital oil supplies.”

Syria Sets New Rules For Israeli Strikes – by Moon of Alabama – “Syria will now continue to respond to Israeli attacks. This time it limited its strikes to military positions in the occupied Golan heights. The next strikes will go further. This time Israel sent its population in the occupied Golan heights into bunkers. The next time half of Israel may have to go underground. How long could Israel sustain that?.. Iran will also retaliate for attacks on its forces in Syria. But it does not need to do so from Syria. There are also other ways and means than sending missiles… That Syria, after much suffering, now retaliated for the Israeli strikes draws a new line in the sand. If Israel wants a wider war it will get one. The destruction in the involved countries in the Middle East, including Israel, might thrown them back 100 years. Syria, Lebanon, and Iran could live with that. A 100 years ago Israel did not exist.”

Travel Bans, Restrictions And Barbed Wire – Do You Want to Travel Around The Middle East? Think Twice! – by Andre Vltchek – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49408.htm – “That was the time when the new Gaza International Airport had just opened. After few days of fighting, the runway was bombed by the Israelis, all flights cancelled, and I had to, eventually make my way out through Egyptian Sinai… Later, I also witnessed how brutal the Israeli occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights has been; how it has divided countless families and communities. People are forced to shout at each other through the Israeli barbed-wire electric fences. The only way for the families to reunite, at least for a day or two, was to somehow get to Jordan… The Syrian Golan Heights used to be famous for its delicious apples and ancient Druze community. It used to attract travelers from all over the world. Now it is occupied by Israel, and it is de-populated and monstrously militarized… You want to travel there? You cannot; not anymore. It is off limits.”

Trump Basically Threatened Iran with Annihilation – The Deep State First – Madness On Both Ends of the Acela Corridor – by David Stockman – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49410.htm – “At his so-called Cabinet meeting this morning, the Donald basically threatened Iran with annihilation if it does what 15 other signatories to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT) do every day: Namely, increase production of industrial grade nuclear fuel (3.5%-5.0% purity) at its enrichment plant at Natanz – which, in any event, is crawling with IAEA inspectors… Moreover, it really doesn’t matter whether Trump was play-acting in the style of Art of the Deal or that the JPAOC could be improved… The mere threat of a military attack from the White House is madness because it arises from blatant lies that have absolutely nothing to do with US national security. Nor, for that matter, the security of any other country in the region, including Saudi Arabia and Israel… The real purpose of the Donald’s missile-rattling is nothing more than helping Bibi Netanyahu keep his coalition of right wing religious and settler parties (Likud, United Torah Judaism, Shas, Kulanu and the Jewish Home) together, thereby maintaining his slim 61-vote majority in the 120-seat Knesset.”

Boston Dynamics Unveils “Terrifying” Robot That Can Run, Jump And Climb – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-11/boston-dynamics-unveils-terrifying-robot-can-run-jump-and-climb – “The robot uprising is right on schedule as evidenced by Boston Dynamics’ latest “nightmare inducing” videos of their autonomous creations. In one, their humanoid robot Atlas can be seen running through a field as if in hot pursuit of John Connor, while another video shows “spot mini” prancing around – going up and down stairs, ominously.”

Jordan Peterson’s ‘Shoddy Treatment of the Jewish Question’ – by Kevin MacDonald – https://russia-insider.com/en/jordan-petersons-shoddy-treatment-jewish-question-kevin-macdonald/ri23440 – ” However, my confidence in Peterson’s trustworthiness was shaken by his shoddy treatment of the Jewish Question, including name-calling directed at my own work. This is part of his broader offensive against identitarians, people who defend their group interests. For Peterson there are only individual interests (a bit strange for someone who approves of evolutionary biology, a subdiscipline that encompasses kin selection theory and, for humans, cultural group selection). For Peterson to admit there is a Jewish Question would be to concede the reality of group interests—not only families but religions, ethnic groups, and nations.”

War On Cash Goes into Full Effect — Purchases Over $10,000 ILLEGAL in Australia – by Jay Syrmopoulos – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/war-on-cash-goes-into-full-effect-purchases-over-10000-illegal-in-australia.html – “Treasurer Scott Morrison said the Black Economy Standing Taskforce will include a rigorous identification system and “mobile strike teams,” in an effort to detect people making suspicious cash transactions, as well as a black economy hotline for citizens to report anyone suspected of engaging in illegal transactions… ‘Cash provides an easy, anonymous and largely untraceable mechanism for conducting black economy activity,’ the response said. ‘Cash payments make it easier to under-report income and avoid tax obligations. This allows businesses transacting in cash to undercut competitors and gain a competitive advantage.’ ”

51 School Children Hospitalized After Mass Poisoning in Ukraine – by Dilyana Gaytandzhieva – http://21stcenturywire.com/2018/05/11/51-children-hospitalized-after-mass-poisoning-in-school-in-ukraine/ – “This is not the first such case in Ukraine. Over the last few years a number of cases related to poisoning (including botulinum toxin poisoning) and other incurable diseases have been reported across the country. The source of the outbreaks has never been identified. Their number has increased dramatically since the start of the Pentagon biological research program in the former Soviet Union country, which borders on the US main rival – Russia… The US has been operating military biolaboratories in 25 countries under a $ 2.1 billion military program – Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP). Eleven of those biolaboratories are located in Ukraine. The military projects at these biological research facilities are sensitive information, according to the 2005 Agreement between the US Department of Defense and the Ukrainian Ministry of Health.”

Cognitive-Behavioral Workforce Conditioning Through Online Adaptive-Learning Technetronics – by John Klyczek – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/cognitive-behavioral-workforce-conditioning-through-online-adaptive-learning-technetronics.html – ” According to the Obama White House archives, the technetronic Educate to Innovate program financed “science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)” education programs that were bankrolled with ‘over $700 million in public-private partnerships” between the federal government and “leading companies, foundations, non-profits, and science and engineering societies.’ During Obama’s presidency, which was counseled by Brzezinski[2], the corporate-fascist Educate to Innovate project orchestrated public-private political-economic planning with “leaders such as Ursula Burns (Xerox), Sally Ride, Craig Barrett (formerly of Intel), and Glenn Britt (Time Warner Cable) to leverage the business community interest in improving STEM education. Together, they recruited over a 100 other CEOs.”Additionally, Obama’s neoliberal regime pushed Brzezinski’s technetronic agenda even further by ‘help[ing] [to] launch Change the Equation, a new [2010] non-profit with full-time staff dedicated to mobilizing the business community to improve the quality of STEM education in the United States.’ ”

California Judges Quietly Remove All Second Amendment Rights – This week, in two separate rulings, these judges have declared that the right to self-defense does not exist and is not what the Heller decision outlined – by Austin Lewis – http://www.agenda21radio.news/2018/05/12/california-judges-quietly-remove-all-second-amendment-rights/ – “The CRPA has the option to appeal, of course, meaning that both cases would go to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Anyone with even a passing familiarity with the rulings of that court understands that the outcome of such an appeal is predetermined… The Ninth is a solidly anti-gun rights court, as well as being the most-reversed federal court in the nation. Of course, if the CRPA lost those appeals (or more honestly, when they lost those appeals), they could always appeal again, to the Supreme Court… But the United States Supreme Court seems disinterested in hearing local Second Amendment cases. Their refusal to do so recently, in fact, is the reason that California and Illinois can do essentially whatever they want to restrict firearm rights… By refusing to hear local cases, the Supreme Court allowed the decisions of lower courts to stand, abdicating their role as the arbiter of the law to leftists on the Ninth Circuit Court.”

Autistic 5th-Grader Handcuffed, Arrested for Playing With ‘Imaginary Gun’ at School – by Matt Agorist – http://www.thedailysheeple.com/autistic-5th-grader-handcuffed-arrested-for-playing-with-imaginary-gun-at-school_052018 – “(mother Amy) Sims explained that she was never notified of her son’s arrest until after he’d been booked. Sims noted that like many kids with autism, her son doesn’t understand that playing make believe guns on campus has become inappropriate behavior… ‘Being put in handcuffs, not knowing what he did wrong, I could have had a talk with him and told him look, I know you like to play guns, but you can’t do it in school,’ said Amy Sims… Indeed, that is all that should have happened. However, this little boy is now facing criminal charges instead… As for David, he will not be allowed back at the school and he must attend an alternative disciplinary school for the rest of the year.”

Missile attacks reflect changing strategic landscape – Russia has shown its willingness to allow attacks by Israel on the Iranians or Hezbollah -by Stephen Bryen – http://www.atimes.com/article/missile-attacks-reflect-changing-strategic-landscape/ – “Netanyahu’s presence in Moscow represents in the strongest possible terms that the two leaders have achieved an operational modus vivendi, allowing the Israeli and Russian militaries to work out a deconfliction system for their air forces and air defenses. Russia has consistently demonstrated its willingness to tolerate attacks by Israel against shipments of weapons and weapons depots that are either supporting the Iranians or Hezbollah… Iran has to be alarmed that Russia and Israel are working in close collaboration in Syria. Iran has been pushing to add to the 10 permanent bases it has in Syria and now wants a naval port, but Assad has refused due to Russian objections. Israel would certainly object to an Iranian naval presence as well.”

Russia warned Iran ahead of exchange with Israel — report – Moscow’s deputy FM said to have conveyed message to Tehran based on content of Putin-Netanyahu conversation – https://www.timesofisrael.com/russia-warned-iran-ahead-of-exchange-with-israel-report/ – “Russia reportedly issued a “warning” to Iran hours before 20 missiles were fired at the Golan Heights from Syria, prompting a massive Israeli counter-strike… The Saudi-owned Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported Friday that Russian deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov had conveyed the unspecified warning to his Iranian counterpart, Abbas Araghchi, in Tehran on Wednesday… Iran denied the claim that it fired rockets at Israeli territory and insisted it does not maintain military bases in Syria.”

Moscow says it won’t supply advanced air defenses to Syria – Days after Netanyahu visits Russia and Israel strikes Iranian bases, aide to Putin says there’s no talk of sending S-300 missiles to Assad – https://www.timesofisrael.com/moscow-says-it-wont-supply-advanced-air-defenses-to-syria/ – “An aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday that Moscow has no current plans to supply an advanced air defense system to Syria… Vladimir Kozhin, a member of Putin’s inner circle, told the Russian newspaper Izvestia that there has been no talk of delivering the S-300 system to Damascus… ‘So far, there has been no talk of deliveries of modern new systems,’ he said, adding that the Assad regime has “all that is needed.” ”

Which side is lying about Israel’s missile attack on Syria? – Analysis of reports show Israel’s attack was ‘pre-emptive’ and unprovoked – by Eric Zuesse – http://theduran.com/which-lying-israel-may-9th-missiles-syria-syria/ – “Neither side is yet presenting key evidence regarding which side fired first, and which side was the actual aggressor. Are both sides lying? However, during what seems to have been the beginning of the missile-exchanges, Israel’s leading newspaper did run the headline “A Preemptive Strike in Syria”. “Preemptive” means like George W.Bush’s 20 March 2003 invasion of Iraq was. That Israeli newspaper believes in ‘preemptive’ invasion now, and so did Americans believe in it in 2003… Also on May 10th, the Times of Israel newspaper bannered “Iranian military official denies firing rockets at Israel” and reported that Iran’s Government said it didn’t know anything about any missiles that might have been fired from Syrian territory into any Israeli-occupied portion of the Golan Heights. Presumably if that rocket-firing had actually happened, Iran’s Government would have known about it, but they said they knew nothing about any such thing.”

Trump’s Pyrrhic Victory: the US Opts for a Path That Can Only Lead to War – by Philip M. Giraldi – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/05/10/trump-pyrrhic-victory-us-opts-for-path-that-can-only-lead-war.html – “The failure of the JCPOA is not about the agreement at all, which is both sound and workable. There is unfortunately an Israeli-White House construct which assumes that Iran is both out to destroy Israel, for which no evidence has been revealed, as well as being singularly untrustworthy, an odd assertion coming from either Washington or Tel Aviv.”

The report included video footage of border agents kicking over gallons of water and pouring them out.”

It’s Time to Drop the Jew Taboo – It’s making serious discussion of Russian geopolitics and history next to impossible – by Charles Bausman – https://russia-insider.com/en/its-time-drop-jew-taboo/ri22186 – “Most people know about, but few are willing to condemn, the strict taboo in the media, of criticizing Jews as a group, using that term. One cannot even criticize a small subsection of Jews, a miniscule percentage of the Jewish population, even when they richly deserve it… Obviously, this is a ridiculous way to run a publication whose object is to get to the truth, so I am writing this to explain why, from now on, the pages of Russia Insider will be open to articles which fairly and honestly address the influence of Jewish elites, including pointing out when it is malevolent, which it often is, and try to understand it and explain it, with malice towards none.”

Large-scale study proves that cell tower radiation causes cancer… where is the apology from the media for years of LYING about it? – by Isabelle Z. – https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-06-large-scale-study-proves-that-cell-tower-radiation-causes-cancer.html – “The world’s biggest animal study of cell tower radiation, which was carried out by the Ramazzini Institute in Italy, has revealed the dangers of exposure to environmental levels of cell tower radiation. In the study, researchers exposed 2,448 rats to 1.8 GHz GSM radiofrequency radiation in amounts that mimicked those that cell tower antennas give off for 19 hours a day. They found that the female rats had a higher chance of developing malignant brain tumors, while all rats had a higher chance of precancerous conditions and Schwann cell hyperplasia… This study went the extra mile, allowing the rats to live until their natural death. Four fifths of human cancers occur after people have turned 60, so following the animals over an extended period enabled them to catch late-developing tumors… The researchers say that their findings are enough to call on the International Agency for Research on Cancer to take another look at the carcinogenicity of radiofrequency radiation on humans.”

Armenian Genocide: Turkey Cracks Down – by Uzay Bulut – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12255/armenian-genocide-turkey-cracks-down – “The annual Armenian Genocide commemorative event that the Istanbul branch of Turkey’s Human Rights Association (IHD) and the European Grassroots Antiracist Movement (EGAM) planned to hold on April 24 — which they have been holding every year since 2005 — was blocked by police, who seized the placards and banners about the genocide and carried out criminal record checks on participants. Three human rights activists were detained and then released… The annual event commemorates the April 24, 1915 round-up, imprisonment and eventual slaughter of more than 200 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in Istanbul by Ottoman authorities — and the unfolding of the Armenian Genocide.”

Social Media Behemoths Sweep Alternative News into the Memory Hole – by Kurt Nimmo – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/social-media-behemoths-sweep-alternative-news-into-the-memory-hole.html – “Both the right and left need to nurture their own social media platforms and drive traffic there… However, I’m not sure we’re up to it… The elite has done a remarkable job of using the time tested divide and conquer concept, endlessly pitting the so-called right against the amorphously defined left and vice versa. Liberals and conservatives continue to fight over frivolous ideological points as the funny money asset-driven economy prepares to implode and the mission of infinity war expands to the point where it endangers life on planet Earth.”

Cornell course examines ‘derangement’ of ‘climate denialism’ – by Neetu Chandak – https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10847 – “Deranged Authority: The Force of Culture in Climate Change, worth four academic credits, is set to be taught in the Fall 2018 semester by cultural anthropologist Jennifer Carlson… The course description asserts that “climate denialism is on the rise,” suggesting the increase is related to the rise of “reactionary, rightwing [sic] politics in the United States, UK, and Germany.” The proposed solution to combat such denialism and assumed ignorance is “climate justice,” even though over 30,000 scientists reject global warming alarmism… Course readings will focus on the question of “authority” in the field of climate science, exploring ‘climate research, popular environmentalist texts, and industry campaigns aimed at obfuscating evidence of ecological collapse.’.. The class is also influenced by Amitav Ghosh’s 2016 book Great Derangement, which, according to the course description, ‘suggests that the world’s collective failure to meet the challenges of climate change stems from an ongoing crisis of culture and, more fundamentally, of the imagination.’ ”

Pentagon Seeks $300 Million in Weapons for 65,000 US-Backed Forces in Syria – by Jason Ditz – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/pentagon-seeks-300-million-in-weapons-for-65000-us-backed-forces-in-syria.html – “The $300 million in arms also comes with $250 million in “border security” funding for Syria. Both are going into the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO), which Pentagon officials can easily shuffle around to spend on virtually anything… While couched as “Counter-ISIS” funding, the funding looks more likely to be backing the YPG in fighting Turkey. While the US is unlikely to fund fighting against another NATO ally, it may also be this is just another excuse to grow the OCO.”

The Warmakers – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/the-warmakers/ – “Now the bad news: The Israelis are at it again… Amazing, isn’t it? The Israelis have been whining about “imminent” Iranian nukes for years, and they are still at it. Not only that, but these guys have the nerve to say “Iran lied”. Seriously, even by the already unique Israeli standards, that is chutzpah elevated to a truly stratospheric level… If Europe had any sense, any leadership, it would tell Washington good-bye… Is there any reason at all to believe that this time around, when Iran has had almost 40 years to prepare for a full-scale AngloZionist attack the Iranians will fight less fiercely or less competently? We could also look at the actual record of the US armed forces (see Paul Craig Roberts’ superb summary here) and ask: do you think that the US, lead by the likes of Trump, Bolton or Nikki Haley will have the staying power to fight the Iranians to exhaustion (since a land invasion of Iran is out of the question)? Or this: what will happen to the world economy if the entire Middle-East blows up into a major regional war?.. Now comes the scary part: both the Israelis and the Neocons always, always, double-down. The notion of cutting their losses and stopping what is a self-evidently mistaken policy is simply beyond them. Their arrogance simply cannot survive even the appearance of having made a mistake (remember how both Dubya and Olmert declared that they had won against Hezbollah in 2006?).” (emphasis added)

What Can Be Done? – by Paul Craig Roberts – https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/04/30/can-done-paul-craig-roberts/ – “What is the value to Europe of Washington’s hegemony over the world? How do Europeans, as opposed to a handful of politicians receiving bags full of money from Washington, benefit from their vassalage to Washington? Not one benefit can be identified. Washington’s apologists say that Europe is afraid of being dominated by Russia. So why aren’t Europeans afraid of their 73 years of domination by Washington, especially a domination that is leading them into military conflict with Russia?.. Why does Europe enable this scenario? Is there no humanity, no intelligence left anywhere in Europe? Is Europe nothing but a collection of cattle awaiting slaughter from the machinations of the crazed American neocons? Are there no European political leaders with one ounce of common sense, one ounce of integrity?.. If not, doom is upon us as there is no humanity or intelligence in Washington.” – Comment: The lack of intelligence in Washington certainly seems to include Donald Trump.

TV: Israel may be keeping Iran nuke program chief alive, to track his activities – Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, named by Netanyahu as head of Iranian program, would presumably have been on hit list, expert says; if he’s still alive, there must be a reason – https://www.timesofisrael.com/tv-israel-may-be-keeping-iran-nuke-program-chief-alive-to-track-his-activities/Comment: How considerate of the purveyors of the Zionist Entity…

From the Propagandists-Run-Wild Desk: Assad Supporters Plan to Put the ‘Media on Trial’ for Doing Journalism in Syria – A panel of conspiracy theorists plan to gather to discuss whether war reporters should be considered terrorists – https://www.snopes.com/news/2018/05/02/assad-supporters-plan-put-media-trial-journalism-syria/ – “The panel was scheduled for 27 May 2018 at Leeds City Museum, but the museum has since cancelled the event. It included Vanessa Beeley, a British blogger who has gained notoriety by churning out regime propaganda, and Patrick Henningsen, a former writer for Alex Jones’s conspiracy trolling network InfoWars.com… Both are now editors for 21stCenturyWire.com, a disreputable web site that posts pro-Assad disinformation among a garbled cornucopia of pseudoscience and Holocaust denial. The site often hosts David Icke, a British personality who sells the belief that the world is secretly controlled by a race of shape-shifting lizard people who have faked mass casualty events like 9/11.” (emphasis added) Comment: The levels of disingenuousness and lies on display here are almost too deep to plumb. A tremendous split is developing between those who accept this kind of deception as truth, and those who are seeing through it. Free speech is now being denied public venues in the UK regularly.

The Fordo Uranium Enrichment Facility. This was a secret underground enrichment facility that the Iranians built under a mountain. You don’t put thousands of centrifuges under a mountain to produce medical isotopes. You put them there for one reason: nuclear weapons, enrichment for nuclear weapons,’ Netanyahu said.”

The idea of joining a group for the 4,000-mile journey seemed a little less terrifying… Back home in Honduras, nothing was left. Rivera’s village was locked in a bloody land battle. Her husband had been shot dead in the fields… ‘Being a Latino, it hurts to see this,’ said Eduardo Lozano, a lifelong resident of Tijuana who helps build battleships in San Diego. ‘But do you really think these people are going to be allowed to cross? They’re not. Many of them are going to stay here and become a burden.’.. As he spoke, cars crammed with donations continued to pull up to the camp. They brought tents, toys and a few medical supplies.”

Iran is ordered to pay $6BILLION in damages to families of victims of 9/11 after a federal judge found the Islamic Republic aided the attacks and provided material support to Al -Qaeda – from AP – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5681355/Iran-ordered-pay-6BILLION-damages-families-9-11-victims.html – ● Iran has been ordered to pay $6billion in damages to families of victims of 9/11, ● The federal court found evidence that Iran provided material support to al Qaeda, ● Iran has kept quiet about the lawsuit and it’s unlikely they will ever pay, ● Families to the 9/11 victims announced plans this month plans to take steps in a broader court case against Saudi Arabia” – Comment: The timing of this ruling by a single judge is interesting

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims May 2018 as Jewish American Heritage Monthhttps://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/president-donald-j-trump-proclaims-may-2018-jewish-american-heritage-month/ – “Jewish Americans have helped guide the moral character of our Nation. They have maintained a strong commitment to engage deeply in American society while also preserving their historic values and traditions. Their passion for social justice and showing kindness to strangers is rooted in the beliefs that God created all people in his image and that we all deserve dignity and peace. These beliefs have inspired Jewish Americans to build mutual-support societies, hospitals, and educational institutions that have enabled them and their fellow Americans to advance American society.” – Comment: No comment.

U.S. Coalition to launch airstrike against Syria from west Iraq: Paramilitary leader – by Nehal Mostafa – https://www.iraqinews.com/iraq-war/u-s-coalition-to-launch-airstrike-against-syria-from-west-iraq-paramilitary-leader/ – ” Anbar (IraqiNews.com) The U.S.-led Coalition is getting ready to strike some regions in Syria from an airbase, west of Anbar, a pro-government paramilitary leader said… ‘Informed sources from Ain al-Assad base confirmed that the Coalition jets will carry out, within few hours, an airstrike against some regions in Syria,’ Qutri al-Ebeidi, a senior leader with al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) in Anbar, told Almaalomah website on Tuesday… Ebeidi indicated that many jets hover over the base ‘after the U.S. Coalition announced yesterday ending its combat operations in Iraq.’.. On Monday, the coalition announced the end of its combat operations against Islamic State in Iraq and deactivation of its land forces command headquarters.”

New documents show the UK signed up in secret to support Saudi military action – More secrecy won’t protect Yemeni or Saudi Arabian civilians — or the British citizens at work behind the front line – by Mike Lewis – https://medium.com/@mikelresearch/new-documents-show-the-uk-signed-up-in-secret-to-back-saudi-military-action-6b97ccc4d373 – “Throughout the Yemen conflict, Saudi Arabia has remained by far Britain’s leading arms export customer. Half of all UK exports of weapons and military equipment from 2013 to 2017 went to the Kingdom (up from 28% in 2007–11). Most were for the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF), 151 of whose 324 combat aircraft are British-supplied, along with weapons, ground systems, parts and spares… As these papers show, the agreement requires that “United Kingdom civilian and military personnel will remain available in Saudi Arabia for preparation, including arming and support, of the [Tornado fighter-bomber] aircraft during an armed conflict” in which Saudi Arabia is involved… Documents and testimonies we’ve gathered paint a more complicated picture. Over the past eighteen months, with the support of the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, Katherine Templar and I have sought to map these British and British-employed personnel in Saudi Arabia, trying to understand their work and their experiences. Though their existence is hardly a secret, their precise numbers and functions have long remained obscure. The UK-Saudi agreements that govern their work are classified ‘UK Confidential/RSAF Secret’ and are closed from public release until 2027. Even UK ministers say they ‘do not have full visibility of the prime contractor’s manpower footprint in Saudi Arabia, the detail of which forms part of the commercial arrangements underpinning the delivery of much of the contracted support and is therefore sensitive.’ ”

U.S. Confirms Delivery Of Javelin Antitank Missiles To Ukraine – by Christopher Miller – https://www.rferl.org/amp/javelin-missile-delivery-ukraine-us-confirmed/29200588.html – “”They have already been delivered,” a U.S. State Department official confirmed on April 30 in response to an RFE/RL query on the handover of Javelins… In a statement posted on Facebook, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko also confirmed the delivery and said his country continues ‘to strengthen our defense potential in order to repel Russian aggression.’ ” Comment: Russian “aggression” in the Ukraine is frequently claimed, but, so far, has never been substantiated. Many reports now state that the Ukrainian war against the Donbass republics that broke away after the illegal coup against the Yanukovich (who only narrowly evaded assassination by the coup factions) government is on the verge of heating up as part of the Atlanto-Zionist strategy of tension internationally, which some see as related to the impeding collapse of the Western debt economy.

65% of Public School 8th Graders Not Proficient in Reading; 67% Not Proficient in Math – by Terence P.

When it comes to reading, eighth-grade ‘students performing at the Proficient level should be able to provide relevant information and summarize main ideas and themes,’ says NCES. ‘They should be able to make and support inferences about a text, connect parts of a text, and analyze text features. Students performing at this level should also be able to fully substantiate judgments about content and presentation of content.’ ” – Article includes a boatload of statistics.

Facial recognition may be coming to a police body camera near you – by Drew Harwell – https://www.lmtonline.com/business/article/Facial-recognition-may-be-coming-to-a-police-body-12866541.php – “Axon has moved aggressively to corner the market on police technologies, offering free one-year trials for its body cameras and online storage to police departments nationwide. The company said in February that more than half of the major city law-enforcement agencies in the United States have bought Axon body cameras or software, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington… The company, which changed its name last year from Taser International, also advertises itself as “the largest custodian of public safety data in the U.S.,” saying more than 20 petabytes – or 20 million gigabytes – of police photos, body-camera video and other criminal-investigation documents have been uploaded to its cloud-storage service, Evidence.com… Police video is seen as a major growth market for AI-development firms, both for real-time surveillance and after-crime review: One company, BriefCam, allows city officials and police investigators to narrow hours of video down into seconds by filtering only the footage of, for instance, red trucks or men with suitcases.”

It is in short a conspiracy theory, and a particularly bad one at that.”

Netanyahu To Again Cry Wolf – But Something Bigger Is Up (Updated) – by Moon of Alabama – http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/04/netanyahoo-to-again-cry-wolf-but-something-bigger-is-up.html#more – “Netanyahoo (sic) is a notorious liar and warmonger. In September 2002 he lied (vid) to the U.S. congress: ‘There is no question whatsoever that Saddam is seeking and is working and is advancing towards the development of nuclear weapons – no question whatsoever.‘.. Only yesterday he promoted a false story that claimed Arabs in Israel had disrupted a minuted of silence for some people killed in a flash flood… The IAEA says that Iran is in full compliance with the JCPOA. If there were any serious intelligence about any Iranian deviation from the nuclear agreement it would be presented to the IAEA and the six signature powers of the agreement. The IAEA would investigate and report back. If Iran cheated it would be put back under serious international sanctions. That Netanyahoo wants to present something publicly makes it very likely that he has nothing of relevance… We hear that the documents he is said to present were compiled by one Christopher Steele and assembled with the help of one Sergej Skripal and his MI6 handler [redacted]. They will show that Iran attempts to buy yellowcake uranium from Niger… This new comedy stunt by Netanyahoo is tightly coordinated with the Trump administration. Trump’s national security advisor John Bolton has worked with the Zionists since early 2000 to push for a war on Iran: ‘During multiple trips to Israel, Bolton had unannounced meetings, including with the head of Mossad, Meir Dagan, without the usual reporting cable to the secretary of state and other relevant offices. Judging from that report on an early Bolton visit, those meetings clearly dealt with a joint strategy on how to bring about political conditions for an eventual U.S. strike against Iran.’ “

Trump Administration Sends a Dark, Threatening Message to Kim Jong Un – by Alex Lockie – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/49327.htm – “Bolton, a noted North Korea hawk who has vocally pushed for war with the country, made an unsavory comparison in an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” that Kim is sure to have picked up on… Of plans to denuclearize North Korea, Bolton said, ‘I think we’re looking at the Libya model of 2003, 2004.’.. Bolton added: ‘In the case of Libya, for example, and it’s a different situation in some respects … One thing that Libya did that led us to overcome our skepticism was that they allowed American and British observers into all their nuclear-related sites.’ ”

Israel’s Parliament Grants Netanyahu Authority To Declare War With Only Defense Minister’s Approvalhttps://southfront.org/israels-parliament-grants-netanyahu-declare-war-with-only-defense-ministers-approval/ – “On March 30, the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, voted in favor of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to grant him the authority to declare war with only the defense minister’s approval in “extreme circumstance”… The prime minister made the request in the morning of the same day during a debate on a bill aimed at transferring responsibility for declaring war from the full cabinet to the smaller security cabinet… According to the Israeli media, the passed bill states that the security cabinet will be authorized to make a decision on launching war or significant military operations without specifying the makeup of the panel that makes the decision.”

LAWYER ARRESTED FOR HOLOCAUST DISSENT IN KANSAShttps://www.goodinformation.org/lawyer-arrested-for-holocaust-dissent-in-kansas/ – “Upon the demand of college administrators, Leichty was taken away in handcuffs by police from the campus of Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas, Saturday morning, March 17, and forced to spend 18 hours in a holding cell in the nearby county seat of Newton. He was then released on his own recognizance and resumed practicing law in California where he says he is now considering whether to file a federal action for false arrest and defamation… Henry Herskovitz, a retired engineer from Ann Arbor, Michigan, filmed the verbal exchange that Leichty had with the president of Bethel College before Leichty was arrested, and Herskovitz says he was then ordered off campus on threat of arrest when police arrived to arrest Leichty. Herskovitz founded the group Jewish Witnesses for Peace and leads a weekly pro‑Palestinian vigil outside his local synagogue in Ann Arbor… ‘I did nothing wrong and committed no crime, nor did Henry,’ commented Leichty. ‘I did not disrupt the conference in any way, and I was peaceable in all my interactions, although the response to my witness was very disruptive. My arrest appears to have been based on false statements made by school officials to the police. I was apparently characterized as a dangerous Holocaust denier and punished for expressing myself.’.. Leichty notes he had been threatened with arrest previously by various university and church authorities. Mennonite authorities told him to stop distributing literature on a proposed church resolution on Israel or be arrested at a church convention held in July 2017 in Orlando, Florida, at which Leichty was a voting delegate. Ten years before that in October 2007 he was ordered off the campus of Georgetown University on threat of arrest after passing out flyers protesting criminalization of speech in Germany at a German‑American Lawyers Association event.”

Netanyahu Accuses Iran Of Having Secret Program TO Produce Nuclear Weaponshttps://southfront.org/netanyahu-accuses-iran-of-having-secret-program-to-produce-nuclear-weapons/ – “Netanyahu also revealed “55,000 pages” of documents and “183 CDs” allegedly copied from a “highly secret location” in Iran and detailed an effort to build nuclear arms… The Israeli prime minister denounced the Iran nuclear deal as a “historic mistake” and claimed that lifting anti-Iran sanctions would allow the country to boost support for its allies throughout the Middle East, including Iranian-backed groups in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.” – Question: Could this dramatic “announcement” be related to Israel’s multiple agressions against targets in sovereign Syria last night?

My First Climate Change Conference, a View from the Other Side – by Joe A. Gilbertson – http://punchingbagpost.com/my-first-climate-change-conference-a-view-from-the-other-side/ – “I descended into the heart of liberal darkness, Berkeley, California and attended the Tenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses… As you may have guessed, I’m a climate change skeptic. And while this conference was interesting and gratifying for a number of reasons, it did not change my view as a climate change skeptic, but in fact, reinforced it.”

For the Week of 4/23/18:

The idea of replacing the US contingent in Syria with Saudi troops is doomed to failure – by Dmitry Minin – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2018/04/25/idea-replacing-us-contingent-syria-with-saudi-troops-doomed-failure.html – “That Damascus will resolutely resist the proposed reoccupation of its territory by the forces of a “fraternal country” is obvious. It can only lead to more fighting and a rise in regional tensions. Almost as well-equipped as the Americans, the Saudis will never be a worthy opponent of the battle-hardened Syrian army. They have already shown what they’re capable of in the endless war in Yemen, where barefoot Houthis are inflicting one embarrassing defeat after another. Riyadh’s intention to fight a “decisive battle” against Iran on foreign soil will not be realised, either. With its ally Iraq behind it, Tehran would soon have the advantage… It is quite possible that the Americans are secretly pushing for a scenario in which, as well as Arabization, there will also be a “dekurdization” of northern Syria, but at someone else’s hands. Then it would seem as if they are not betraying the Kurds, while calming Arab national feelings and ironing out differences with the Turks at the same time. Don’t think that the Kurds will remain passive bystanders in this situation, however. Chances are they will occupy the vacated US bases and refuse to let anyone in. It is even possible they will finally realise that, in the current situation, the most sensible course of action to resolve the Kurdish national question would be an alliance with Damascus. For the time being, Damascus is prepared to extend the rights of Kurds, but should they find themselves on the losing side later on, their window of opportunity will gradually close.”

Pulitzer Goes Full Orwell, Gives Prizes For Pushing RussiaGate Hoax (NYT, WashPo) – by Charles Bausman – https://russia-insider.com/en/pulitzer-goes-full-orwell-gives-prizes-pushing-russiagate-hoax-nyt-washpo/ri23311 – “The Pulitzer organization has done something massively stupid. They’ve taken a highly contentious, hotly disputed issue which is being exposed as a lie with every passing week, and given it a very partisan endorsement, destroying the Pulitzer brand among huge swathes of the public… The only way the journalists ‘reporting’ on Russiagate for the Times and the Post have distinguished themselves is with their shocking professional malpractice and incompetence, verging on venality. They relentlessly pushed, and continue to push what is obviously a transparent lie. The only possible explanation is either a profound stupidity and gullibility or cynical dishonesty, or both, all grounds for professional disbarment… Up is down. White is black. War is peace. Freedom is slavery.”

Condemned By Their Own Wordshttps://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/04/condemned-by-their-own-words/ – “This transcript of an Israeli General on an Israeli radio station (begins 6.52 in) defending the latest killing by Israeli army snipers of a 14 year old boy who posed no threat of any kind, is much more powerful if you just read it than any analysis I can give:… Fogel: At the tactical level, any person who gets close to the fence, anyone who could be a future threat to the border of the State of Israel and its residents, should bear a price for that violation. If this child or anyone else gets close to the fence in order to hide an explosive device or check if there are any dead zones there or to cut the fence so someone could infiltrate the territory of the State of Israel to kill us … Nesiel: Then, then his punishment is death?.. Fogel: His punishment is death. As far as I’m concerned then yes, if you can only shoot him to stop him, in the leg or arm – great. But if it’s more than that then, yes, you want to check with me whose blood is thicker, ours or theirs. It is clear to you that if one such person will manage to cross the fence or hide an explosive device there …”

US CENTCOM Chief Makes “Secret And Unprecedented” Visit To Israel As Russia Mulls Arming Syria – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-23/us-centcom-chief-makes-secret-and-unprecedented-visit-israel-russia-mulls-arming – “Since the massive strike which involved the US, UK, and France launching over 100 cruise missiles, Russia is rumored to be moving forward on delivery of its advanced S-300 missile defense system, which would be a monumental upgrade allowing Syrian defenses to far surpass current capabilities which utilize the Soviet-made S-125 and S-200 air defense systems… crucially, S-300s have a range of up to 150-200 kilometers (or 120 miles), bringing Syrian deterrent reach easily to within Lebanese airspace (as Israel has routinely struck targets inside Syria while firing over “neutral” Lebanese airspace in recent years), and could even extend airspace coverage into Israel itself… Could this be the reason for some major behind-the-scenes diplomatic scrambling?”

Jewish Home MK says jailed Palestinian teen ‘deserved a bullet’ in the kneecap – Bezalel Smotrich says he is ‘very sad’ Ahed Tamimi is only in an Israeli jail and wasn’t maimed by the soldiers she slapped – by Tamar Pileggi – https://www.timesofisrael.com/firebrand-mk-says-jailed-palestinian-teen-deserved-a-bullet/ – “Tamimi’s arrest and prosecution by Israel has garnered international attention. It has also touched on broader issues, such as the detention of Palestinian minors by Israeli — currently 356 — and the debate on what constitutes legitimate resistance to Israel’s rule over millions of Palestinians… Earlier this month, the IDF said the Justice Ministry was investigating a video released by Tamimi’s family that shows an Israeli interrogator threatening the teen with the arrest of her relatives if she refused to cooperate.

From the Causus-Belli Desk: SITREP: A false flag attack on a USN ship next? – by Nick for the Saker blog – http://thesaker.is/sitrep-a-false-flag-attack-on-the-usn-ships-next/ – “These facts are of course known to the US military planners and – one would assume and hope, for it is duty to know – by Donald Trump. And yet the US fleet is now nearing the coast of Syria, where it will met up with American and other NATO warships already in position. Together, they will make one big flock of sitting ducks… If the people pushing Trump manage to get him launch a new strike on Syria (and we must expect a new false flag attack) and if the massive increase in NATO firepower means that enough missiles get through to enough targets to kill Russians, then Putin really has no choice but to sink the US fleet… The circumstances this time are of course somewhat different, not least that everyone with even a passing knowledge of the Russian missile capability already knows that 6,500 sailors are “on their way to Samara”… Which makes Donald Trump either a criminally incompetent fool, a bad poker player or a wholly controlled puppet of the psychotic Anglo-Zionist elite. If he is one of the first two of these, then there is of course still a chance that he might respond to the disaster by blinking and retreating. In which case, the Beltway elite will use the human tragedy and his humiliation to remove him from office (not a bad consolation prize, from their point of view)… But if he is the third, then the ‘shock’ blitz on the US fleet will lead to the immediate declaration of World War Three.”

“Irrefutable Proof”: UK Publishes Photo Of Russian Agent Involved In Skripal Poisoninghttps://southfront.org/irrefutable-proof-uk-publishes-photo-of-russian-agent-involved-in-skripal-poisoning/ – “According to The Sunday People, British counter terror police have ­identified a Russian assassin ­connected to the Salisbury poisonings – a 54-year-old former FSB spy – codename Gordon… ‘Detectives believe there was a team of six behind the novichok chemical ­attack on double agent Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33,’ The Sunday People’s article says adding that the UK’s intelligence services have ­compiled a list of key suspects involved in last month’s attack in the poisoning incident… They even have Gordon’s photo:…”

France’s President Says He Wants To Build “New Syria” With U.S. (w/Video 13 min) – https://southfront.org/frances-president-says-he-wants-to-build-new-syria-with-u-s/ – “On April 22, France’s President Emmanuel Macron said during an interview with Fox News TV that France, the US and their allies should stay in Syria after the defeat of ISIS in order to build what he called “a new Syria.”.. ‘We will have to build the new Syria afterward, and that’s why I think the U.S. hold is very important,’ Macron said answering to a question on the US decision to withdraw from Syria… The French President added that the US and its allies, including France, should also counter the influence of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad and Iran. Macron even suggested that Russia and Turkey should play a role in his plans for ‘a new Syria.’ ” – Comment: I don’t consider Mr. Macron my enemy. Still, I think he is a tad arrogant.

Thousands of People in Only One State have Been in Jail for Over a YEAR and Never Proven Guilty – by Jack Burns – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/04/thousands-of-people-in-only-one-state-have-been-in-jail-for-over-a-year-and-never-proven-guilty.html – “A defendant’s inability to afford bail becomes, in effect, a prison sentence. Probably nowhere is the problem more pervasive than in Cook County, Illinois, where Sheriff Tom Dart presides over the Cook County Jail facility… Dart recently told CBS News half of the jail’s nearly 7,500 inmates should not even be in jail. He said jails have become a dumping ground for the poor, the mentally ill, and for gang members… ‘I would suggest conservatively that half of the people here in the jail shouldn’t be here.’.. Dart said that is a conservative estimate and it could be much higher. He explained the issue, echoing sentiments by critics of the current judicial system who say that it is broken and must be fixed… ‘They don’t pose a danger to anybody. The people in most jails—in 95 percent of the people in this jail are waiting on a trial. So everybody here are people who haven’t been convicted yet. So you say to yourself, “All right, they’re presumed innocent. Who is so dangerous that we need to hold them here while we’re waiting on a trial?” ‘ ”

Syria, Iran and ‘chaos in international relations’ – Any meaningful political resolution to the turmoil in the Middle East now seems more elusive than ever – by Pepe Escobar – http://www.atimes.com/article/syria-iran-chaos-international-relations/ – “Moscow, Damascus, Tehran and Baghdad are showing a united front even as the alleged chemical attack in Douma – the reason for the strikes – is being forcefully debunked. Additionally, pesky questions remain unanswered on why more than 100 missiles were necessary to destroy only three largely empty state-run scientific centers in Damascus and Homs… Even after Damascus and Baghdad declared victory, the Salafi-jihadi galaxy may be seriously wounded in both Syria and Iraq, but is not extinct. Turkey is still cultivating some nasty connections… So the key variable in the Astana process – which involves complex economic and military trade offs – remains Ankara, which has no intention of abandoning its sprawling Syrian ops before subduing the Kurdish YPG all around.”

Pink Floyd Frontman Leaks Email Exposing How White Helmets Recruit Celebs With Saudi Money – by John Vibes – http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/pink-floyd-frontman-leaks-email-exposing-how-white-helmets-recruit-celebs-with-saudi-money/ – Invitation to Roger Waters, October 2016:”I am writing to invite you and a guest to join Hani at a fundraising dinner that he is hosting on Monday 21st November on behalf of The Syria Campaign…The Asfari Foundation provided the start-up funds for The Syria Campaign and we will be joined on the evening by Sawsan Asfari…Their work with The White Helmets has helped these rescue workers attract more than $15 million in government funding and turned them into household names – narrowly missing out on the Nobel Peace Prize this year.”

Endgame: Globalism Through Public Pension Ponzi Schemes Now Manifesting… CalPERS Caught Lying To The Public Again! – by Clint>Richard-son – https://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2018/04/21/endgame-globalism-through-public-pension-ponzi-schemes-now-manifesting-calpers-caught-lying-to-the-public-again/ – “Unless all current, un-retired members of all pension funds withdraw what they have given (contributed) voluntarily as the law allows, and until taxpayers collectively stop allowing their taxpayer dollars (required municipal corporation contributions) to support this global investment scheme, there is no way to prevent what is and always was the intent of these pension schemes toward globalism… This is the my last ditch attempt to spell out in the greatest of detail the whole of the international public pension ponzi scheme and why it is and has been the number one foundational, financial stone supporting the move to global governance. This is not just some empty statement to frighten you, though it should, but is merely a statement of known fact. The time for willful ignorance is over. For you must understand that through pension fund investments, governments around the world are the majority shareholders of nearly all corporations, with very few exceptions.”

UK Spies Are the World Champs in False Flags, Lying and Deception and Have Been for Centuries – by Wayne Madsen – https://russia-insider.com/en/uk-spies-are-world-champs-false-flags-lying-and-deception-and-have-been-centuries/ri23183 – “It should come as no surprise that American news networks rely on British correspondents stationed in northern Syria and Beirut as their primary sources. MI-6 has historically relied on non-official cover (NOC) agents masquerading primarily as journalists, but also humanitarian aid workers, Church of England clerics, international bankers, and hotel managers, to carry out propaganda tasks. These NOCs are situated in positions where they can promulgate British government disinformation to unsuspecting actual journalists and diplomats.”

New Study: US Economy Actually About to Sink – by Jon Hellevig – https://russia-insider.com/en/new-study-us-economy-actually-about-sink/ri23147 – “In view of this, it is clear that the present US economic system will not survive beyond the next 5 to 10 years. Massive changes in the economic model would have to be undertaken either in an organized fashion (hardly imaginable) or through a mega financial crisis. Ultimately this would lead to a permanent downgrading of US standards of living as the economy would have to adjust back to its pre-financial bubble level of $14.5 trillion (a 30% drop from present debt-fueled level). Following these cataclysmic adjustments, the US would lose its economic hegemony and hegemonic military power. This would give a per capita GDP of just above $30 thousand, almost on par with Russia’s present $28 thousand per capita… The Fed may have already caused permanent and fatal damage to the US economy by organizing the decade long zero-interest debt orgy. The US economy has been turned into a giant bubble economy detached from all fundamental market mechanisms. It is even doubtful if the United States can still be called a market economy. In a real market economy, it would never have been possible to press by fiat interest rates down to zero without the other components of a financial system – currency exchange values, inflation, risk premiums – reacting in different directions. In actual fact, it has not been possible in the US either, the complications – as we have seen – have been building up and have now reached the near breaking point. Fed financing has stoked the asset bubbles with misallocated credit that has been used for financial speculation and corporate stock buyback.” Comment: Great article, IMO, well researched.

U.S. Slams Russia, Iran As ‘Morally Reprehensible’ For Rights Violationshttps://www.rferl.org/a/u-s-slams-russia-iran-as-morally-reprehensible-for-rights-violations/29182900.html – ” ‘States that restrict freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly; that allow and commit violence against members of religious, ethnic, and other minority groups; or that undermine the fundamental dignity of persons are morally reprehensible and undermine our interests,’ he said… ‘The governments of China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, for example, violate the human rights of those within their borders on a daily basis and are forces of instability as a result.’.. The report sharply chided Moscow in the Russia section of the report, saying it continues to “arm, train, lead, and fight alongside pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine and that human rights in Russia continue to be ‘significantly and negatively’ affected by Moscow’s ‘purported annexation’ of Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula and its support for separatist fighters in eastern Ukraine.”

The Plan to Save California’s Legendary Weed From ‘Big Cannabis’ – by Matt Simon – https://www.wired.com/story/the-plan-to-save-californias-legendary-weed-from-big-cannabis – ” ‘If we were starting this industry from scratch today, and there was no demand and no supply,’ adds Steinmetz, ‘then yes, Big Ag would probably dominate it and run it.’ But the reality is different. The Emerald Triangle marijuana ecosystem is established, and it is vibrant. Flow Kana’s quest is to save this cannabis culture with a facility that will take in product grown in the Emerald Triangle, helping growers compete with the supply chains of Big Cannabis.”

Gunmen Attacked UN Experts In Syria’s Dumahttps://southfront.org/gunmen-attacked-un-experts-in-syrias-duma/ – “A gunfight broke out between Syrian security agencies and unidentified persons at the outer perimeter safeguarding the motor convoy … In the exchange of fire, a Syrian security officer sustained a light wound. Russian servicemen were not present at the site of the incident,” Maj. Gen. Yevtushenko told reporters on April 18, according to the Russian news agency TASS… No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the UNDSS experts yet. Syrian pro-government activists believe cells of Jaysh al-Islam could be behind the attack which was an attempt to obstacle the OPCW investigation in Duma.” – Comment: This was the “security crisis” that Western media have come out blaming the Syrians and Russians for instigating.

Russia Blocks Millions Of IP Addresses Including Local Businesses Over Telegram Refusing To Give Encryption Keys – by Aaron Kesel – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/04/russia-blocks-millions-ip-addresses-including-local-businesses-over-telegram-refusing-encryption-keys.html – “A court ordered that Telegram be blocked in Russia after it refused to hand over its encryption keys to state security agencies like the FSB… Yesterday, Roskomnadzor, Russia’s equivalent of the FCC, began telling mobile networks that they had to block access to Telegram… According to the head of RKN, Aleksandr Zharov, the authority has managed to block 30 percent of Telegram networks, and the amount of complaints from services that have suffered as a result of the ban is “quite low.” RKN has also issued warnings to proxy and VPN service owners about upcoming bans, citing ‘extremism and calls for mass disturbances.’ ” – Comment: Then I guess Telegram really may be encrypted…

The system should implement learning algorithms that provide operational flexibility by allowing the target set and DRCI taxonomy to be quickly adjusted and to operate in different environments.’ ”

EPA Faces Lawsuit For Withholding Records Related To Pesticide Rule Change – by Derrick Broze – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/04/epa-faces-lawsuit-for-withholding-records-related-to-pesticide-rule-change.html – “In March the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled the EPA had illegally delayed implementation of the Agricultural Worker Protection Standard and Certification for Pesticide Applicators rule. Earthjustice applauded the decision at the time. However, the court’s recognition that the EPA has been acting illegally by delaying implementation of the safety measures does not guarantee the agency will be forthcoming with documents requested by Earthjustice. For the moment, the American public remains in the dark regarding the reasoning behind the EPA’s resistance to protect farm workers and children from dangerous pesticides.”

From the webpage on fourwinds10.com: “It is reported by those close to her, that Queen Elizabeth II, will make a public statement in the coming weeks, announcing her decision to step down from the Throne of England. Sources say her decision comes after learning that THE ONE WHOSE RIGHT IT IS TO RULE AND REIGN has made His presence known to her. It is reported that she is in receipt of a Declaration and Notice of Claim to the Throne of England from Australian born Brian Leonard Golightly Marshall… Apparently the Queen’s advisors have confirmed to her that Brian Leonard Golightly Marshall is the direct genetic descendant of the King of Judah, King David through the Royal bloodline of his parents Daphne Golightly and Reginald Marshall.” Comment: First this is supposedly reported by “those close to” The Queen (G*d save her!), so that’s pretty opaque. Moreover, this coming elevation of Golightly Marshall to Beast, er, King of Ol’ Blighty, is reported to be based on his descent from the infamous King David, slayer of Goliath, if the scriptures are to be believed. Sadly, they are not. There is no reliable evidence of the existence of David, or or his magnificent son, Solomon, or of any of the architecture that would reasonably have survived from the opulent Royal Center of Jerusalem as told of in the Bible. Word of G*d… If, in fact, such a dramatic transition does eventuate, we can, IMO, be reasonably sure that a major push toward Unitary World Government is afoot.For more on this, please see: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/man-who-thinks-hes-jesus-6149165

US Army Figures Out How To Do Facial Recognition in the Dark – by Patrick Tucker – https://www.defenseone.com/technology/2018/04/us-army-figures-out-how-do-facial-recognition-dark/147527/ – “The Army researchers saw a parallel with thermal images. Such images show what parts of the face are hotter and cooler, but generally contain fewer data points than a comparable optical image from a camera, making it hard to pick out distinct features. So they set up a convolutional neural network, or CNN, a deep-learning method that uses specific nodes similar to the brain’s, and set it to infer faces from limited data.”

It is a grave threat to our health, our environment, and our economy — and it is not debatable or negotiable,’ he said in a statement last year after President Trump said he would walk away from the Paris Climate Agreement.” (emphasis added) – Comment: Los Angeles already has a $74 million budget deficit thanks largely to its intractable homeless problem…

Could Student Loans Lead to Debt Prison? The Handwriting on the Wall – by Alan Nasser – https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/04/18/could-student-loans-lead-to-debt-prison-the-handwriting-on-the-wall/ – “Failure to appear in court for the “judgment debtor exam” is grounds for creditors to have the judge issue a civil warrant for the debtor’s arrest. Failure to appear in court is the major grounds for the issuance of a warrant and/or arrest…But most often debtors failed to appear because they were not notified of the court date, or, more scandalously, they were not even notified of the existence of the lawsuit. The ineptitude of the courts’ procedures stands in sharp contrast to the relentlessness with which the courts, in collusion with debt collectors, hound the indebted… The implications of this entire setup are more far reaching than the harm described above done to debtors. The damage includes lost wages, lost jobs and psychological distress. And the debtor need not be jailed in order for these damages to take their toll. An arrest warrant by itself can wreak long-lasting havoc on the debtors’ lives: warrants are entered into background check databases, which can jeopardize future employment, educational opportunities, housing applications and access to security clearances.”

Young Girls Were Given Contraceptive Implants Without Their Parents Consent – by Alanna Ketler – http://www.collective-evolution.com/2018/04/18/young-girls-were-given-contraceptive-implants-without-their-parents-consent/ – “One outraged mother, Rachel Halliwell, parent to 11-year-old daughter appeared on the ITV show along with Rebecca Jane, a mother of two and ex reality star. Rachel expressed her outrage and concern over parents being entirely left out of this decision making process and made an excellent point by stating: ‘If my 11-year-old daughter wanted to get her hair coloured or her ears pierced that wouldn’t happen without my consent. Yet she equally could have gone along to a family planning clinic and had a device fitted and I would have known nothing about it.’ ”

UK Labour MPs tell Corbyn ‘enough is enough’ in heated debate on anti-Semitism – Following Jewish community protests, lawmakers rail against their own party in parliament, accusing leadership of failing to tackle anti-Semitism within its ranks – by Raoul Wootliff – https://www.timesofisrael.com/uk-labour-mps-tell-corbyn-enough-is-enough-in-heated-debate-on-anti-semitism/ – “Luciana Berger, the Jewish Labour MP who first demanded that Corbyn explain his defense of an anti-Semitic mural which sparked the protests last month, delivered an impassioned speech describing abuse she personally received… ‘People have accused me of having two masters, they have said I am ‘Tel Aviv’s servant,’ they have called me a paid up Israeli operative, essentially anti-Semitism of the worst kind suggesting I am a traitor to this country,’ she said of messages she had been sent since questioning Corbyn… Berger said she would ‘make no apology for holding my party to higher standards,’ saying that ‘even one anti-Semitic member of the Labour Party is one member too many‘ and should not be tolerated by the leadership.” (emphases added) – Comment: The mural in question was not in the least “Anti-Semitic.” It depicted a cartoon graphic of the “New World Order” with a group of stereotypic bankers playing Monopoly on the backs of naked peasants. The artist was repeatedly asked if he was showing Jewish bankers, to which he replied only “no.” The mural was destroyed within days. Berger, in her speech, equates “Anti-Semitism” with racism, yet there have been many, conflicting definitions of Anti-Semitism floated. Most recently, any criticism of the actions of anyone acting in the name (under color of representing) the State of Israel, or criticism of Zionism at all have been called Anti-Semitic by “official” Jewish organizations.

He also threatened Syria with further strikes: ‘The US and our allies were justified in taking limited military action against Bashar al-Assad in response to his barbaric use of chemical weapons. Hopefully, the Syrian dictator gets the message. If not, I have no doubt there will be more military strikes,’ Royce said on the Foreign Affairs Hearing.” – Comment: The Lashings Will Continue Until Moral Improves.

Trump Is Naive About the Neocons Surrounding Him – by Roger Stone – https://russia-insider.com/en/trump-naive-about-neocons-surrounding-him-roger-stone/ri23163 – “But more than any of the other policy areas, it is in national defense and foreign affairs that President Trump faces the most ruthless and ubiquitous of would-be usurpers: the so-called neoconservatives. The neocons are dead-set on maintaining their vice grip on American foreign policy and continuing to impose on this country their messianic international designs and risky interventionist schemes that seek to use American military might as the tool of their dubious globalist objectives.”

Do You Really Think This War Is Over? – by The Saker – https://russia-insider.com/en/do-you-really-think-war-over/ri23151 – “Facts simply don’t matter. And neither does logic. All that matters are perceptions!.. And the perception is that “we” (the AngloZionist rulers and their serfs) “kicked” Assad’s “ass” and that “we” will “do it again” if “we” feel like it. That is all that matters in the Empire of Illusions which the AngloZionist Hegemony has become… As soon as you understand that, you also will have to agree that Trump was right: it was a “perfect strike” (again, not in reality, but in the world of illusions created around it)… So now we come full circle… The AngloZionist Hegemony demands that the entire planet bows down and worships it. Except for Russia and Iran, everybody meekly goes down on their knees or, at most, meekly looks away. In their own delusional reality, the ‘Mericans feel empowered to smack down Russia or Iran at anytime. There is nothing Iran can do to stop them, and while Russia can, she can only do that at the risk of the future of our entire planet… Now you tell me – do you really think this is over?”

More on the Skripal/Douma false flag connectionhttps://off-guardian.org/2018/04/15/46325/ – “The real danger isn’t that a group of ubermenschen or Bond-villains want to incinerate humanity for vague and unspecified reasons, it’s that the deep heart of the Russophobic cabal is too dogma-driven and infested with idiots to understand the real world results of their plans. We can be sure they won’t have learned from this and won’t be deterred from more of the same or worse in future. And if their next remedial scheme doesn’t get stymied by circumstance or nifty footwork, no one will be more surprised than they are when it kicks of WW3… But they do have some opposition within the state machine, and always have. There were people in the US and UK intelligence agencies who didn’t want to lie about WMDs, and there are people today in the UK FCO who off-record told Craig Murray about the lies being forced on them regarding the Skripal case. These are people with enough smarts to want to avoid real confrontation with Russia, however prepared they are to play the public word games… I think it’s important we address this more nuanced reality rather than opting for the security of familiar memes.”

U.S. To Hit Russia With Sanctions Over Support For Assadhttps://www.rferl.org/a/u-s-to-hit-russia-with-sanctions-over-support-for-assad/29168914.html – “U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on U.S. television on April 15 that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would announce the new sanctions on April 16… ‘They will go directly to any sort of companies that were dealing with equipment related to Assad and chemical-weapons use,’ Haley said… ‘I think everyone is going to feel it at this point,’ she added. ‘I think everyone knows that we sent a strong message, and our hope is that they listen to it.’.. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova confirmed that Moscow had been informed of the looming sanctions… ‘I can really confirm that the sanctions are to be imposed on Russia without any link to reality,’ she said on Russian television. ‘If earlier they used to say they were punishing us for Ukraine, now the wording has been changed dramatically. Now they punish us for the mere fact of being in the global arena.’ ” (emphasis added)

Russia says UN delaying Syria mission into alleged gas attack – by Sarah El Deeb and Nataliya Vasilyeva – https://www.timesofisrael.com/russia-says-un-delaying-syria-mission-into-alleged-gas-attack/ – “A senior Russian diplomat said on Monday that the mission from the international chemical weapons watchdog cannot access the site of an alleged chemical attack near the Syrian capital without an appropriate UN permit… Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov’s remarks could indicate a possible attempt to bog down the team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, though both Russia and the Syrian government have welcomed the OPCW visit in the wake of the West’s airstrikes in Syria over the weekend… A team from the OPCW arrived in Syria shortly before the airstrikes early Saturday. It has met with Syrian officials but has not visited the town at the center of the controversy. Government forces and Russian troops have deployed in Douma, which has now fallen under the control of the Syrian government… ‘It is the lack of approval by the UN Department for Safety and Security for OPCW experts to visit the site in Douma that is the problem,’ Ryabkov told reporters, adding that he checked just a short while ago what was delaying their visit.”

For starters, upscale Millennials — among the most coveted of diners because of their youth and affluence — prefer to pay in cash, according to Bankrate.com data. Also, more than a third of Americans between the ages of 18 and 37 do not have a credit card… A committee in Chicago is weighing Alderman Edward Burke’s proposed requirement that merchants accept cash.

The War in Syria was a US Intervention Since “Day 1” – by Tony Cartalucci – https://www.activistpost.com/2018/04/the-war-in-syria-was-a-us-intervention-since-day-1.html – “With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders… The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports… Yet, published CIA documents drawn from the US National Archives illustrate how this singular agenda seeking to overthrow the government of Syria stretches back even earlier – by decades.”

Lavrov: Swiss lab says ‘BZ toxin’ used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US & UK servicehttps://www.rt.com/news/424149-skripal-poisoning-bz-lavrov/ – “Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW)… However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added.”

US-led missile strike on Syria was criminal, OPCW to determine – What happened right after the second direct U.S.-missiles invasion of Syria, which had occurred on the night of April 13th, could turn out to have momentous implications — far bigger than the attacks themselves – by Eric Zuesse – http://theduran.com/us-led-missile-strike-on-syria-was-criminal-opcw-to-determine/ – “The OPCW is based not on the U.N. Charter but on that specific treaty, the Chemical Weapons Convention, which was formally approved by the U.N.’s General Assembly on 30 November 1992 and was then opened for signatures in Paris on 13 January 1993. According to the Convention’s terms, it would enter into effect 180 days after 65 nations signed it, which turned out to be on 29 April 1997… So, although the treaty itself received U.N. approval, the recent Russian-sponsored resolution at the U.N.’s Security Council to have the U.N. endorse the OPCW investigation of the 7 April 2018 Douma incident, did not receive U.N. approval. It was instead blocked by the U.S. and its allies. Nonetheless, though without a U.N. endorsement, the OPCW investigation into the incident will move forward, despite the invasion… This fact is momentous, because a credible international inspection, by the world’s top investigatory agency for such matters, will continue to completion, notwithstanding the effort by the U.S. and its allies on the U.N. Security Council, to block it altogether. This decision was reached by the OPCW — not by the U.N… Among the 192 signers of the Chemical Weapons Convention are U.S., Russia, and Syria, as well as China, Iran, and Iraq, but not Israel, nor North Korea and a very few other countries.
