From the You-Can’t-Make-This-Stuff-Up Desk: University Researchers: We Have to Accept People Who ‘Identify as Real Vampires’ – by Katherine Timpf – https://www.nationalreview.com/2015/07/vampires-identify-study-discrimination/ – “The study, titled “Do We Always Practice What We Preach? Real Vampires’ Fears of Coming out of the Coffin to Social Workers and Helping Professionals” was conducted by researchers from Idaho State University and College of the Canyons and the Center for Positive Sexuality in Los Angeles… Some of these “real vampires” prefer to feed on “psychic or pranic energy” while others, called “sanguinarians,” prefer to feed on “small amounts” of human or animal blood… (Of the eleven “real vampires” interviewed for the study, three said they preferred psychic energy, three said they preferred blood, and five said they got energy from multiple sources.).. Williams explained that no one should be bothered by a person wanting to drink another person’s blood because ‘it is generally expected within the community that vampires should act ethically and responsibly in feeding practices,’ and it’s not their blood-drinking that’s the real problem here — it’s the fact that they have to worry that other people will judge them for their blood-drinking.(emphasis added)

U.S. issues warrant to seize Iranian oil tanker Grace 1 – From Tehran Times, Aug. 17 –  https://www.tehrantimes.com/news/439338/U-S-issues-warrant-to-seize-Iranian-oil-tanker-Grace-1 – “(According to a report from Al Jazeera in Washington): ‘The big question is will the British government help the U.S. by seizing this ship, will Interpol be involved or will the U.S. government try to seize that ship.’… According to radio transmission exchanges overheard by Al Jazeera, the ship is expected to set sail on Sunday evening… The Gibraltar Chronicle newspaper also reported that the vessel was unlikely to sail before Sunday, citing an unnamed source who added that it was waiting for six new crew members including a captain to arrive that day… A lawyer for the Grace 1’s current captain, an Indian national, said that his client had asked to be replaced… ‘He doesn’t want to stay in command of the ship, he wants to go home, because he wasn’t happy to go back and pick up the broken pieces,’ his lawyer Richard Wilkinson told The Associated Press news agency. ‘But he’s a professional skipper and needs to wait for a new crew to do a proper handover.’.. Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons, reporting from Gibraltar, said the Grace 1 signage had been removed as well as the Panamanian flag…’The navigation systems, all of them, indicate that it’s still Grace 1, but in terms of maritime law, this vessel really has no visible identity,’ he said.”

US Issues Warrant to Seize Iranian Grace 1 Oil Tanker – Justice Department – https://sputniknews.com/us/201908171076569463-us-announces-warrant-to-seize-iranian-grace-1-oil-tanker—report/ – “The US Justice Department (DoJ) issued a warrant on Friday for the seizure of the Iranian supertanker Grace 1. According to the document, the vessel, all the oil aboard and $995,000 are subject to forfeiture based on violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), bank fraud, money laundering, and terrorism forfeiture statutes… In addition, the document stresses that ‘a seizure warrant and a forfeiture complaint are merely allegations. The burden to prove forfeitability in a civil forfeiture proceeding is upon the government’, according to the Justice Department… …a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Mousavi, said on Friday that Tehran had not provided guarantees that its oil tanker Grace 1 would not go to Syria upon its release. Mousavi confirmed an earlier Foreign Ministry statement that the oil tanker was not heading to Syria when it was detained off Gibraltar’s coast by UK marines on 4 July. Meanwhile, he noted that Iran was providing to Syria support in such spheres as energy and oil… The US Department of State on Thursday threatened any individuals linked to the Iranian Grace 1 oil tanker with “serious consequences,” including visa restrictions due to alleged links to the IRGC.”

Trump inches toward Afghan peace plan to end longest US war – by Jennifer Jacobs, Nick Wadhams – https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-16/trump-to-discuss-afghanistan-peace-plan-with-senior-advisers – “President Donald Trump met his top national security advisers on Friday as his team prepares to unveil an Afghanistan peace agreement with the Taliban that would help bring an end to America’s longest war, according to a person familiar with the matter… Among those discussing the matter with Trump at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, were Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, the person said. The U.S. special envoy for the talks, Zalmay Khalilzad, will then present the plan to Taliban leaders in a new round of discussions in Qatar in the coming days, according to another person with knowledge of the discussions… Khalilzad briefed analysts in Washington on the plan Friday. He has led the talks for months with the initial goal of cutting U.S. troop levels in exchange for guarantees from the Taliban not to allow terror groups such as Islamic State to infiltrate the country… Pompeo later said there was “no deadline” for a troop withdrawal. The U.S. currently has about 14,000 troops in Afghanistan, and defense officials suggested late last year the administration was planning to withdraw about half of them as an initial step.”

Ukie Nationalism vs Otto von Bismarck – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/ukie-nationalism-vs-otto-von-bismarck/ – “The other significant force in the Ukraine is the West Ukrainian (Galician) Nazi death-squads and mobs. Their power is not a democracy either, but an ochlocracy. These guys are a minority, a pretty small one even, but they have enough muscle and even firepower to threaten any nominal Ukrainian leader. Furthermore, these folks have profoundly infiltrated all the police and security forces which, in theory, would have been able to control or disarm them (the SBU, especially, is chock full of Urkonazi thugs)… Now let’s begin by looking at the oligarchs: their number 1 priority is to continue to plunder the Ukraine. For that, you need the opposite of “law and order”: you need lawlessness, chaos, violence…”

Gibraltar defies US, releasing Iranian oil tanker – The move came after a last-minute request from Washington that the UK territory surrender the vessel – by Alison Tahmizian Meuse – https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/08/article/gibraltar-defies-us-releasing-iranian-oil-tanker/ – ” ‘Authorities in Gibraltar have released the Iranian supertanker Grace 1, which was seized on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping 2.1m barrels of crude oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions,’ the Gibraltar Chronicle tweeted… The paper earlier reported that the territory’s Supreme Court had received a request from the US Department of Justice for ‘mutual legal assistance in a bid to seize the ship.’.. The US request came after National Security Adviser John Bolton was visiting the United Kingdom, which claims Gibraltar as a territory… But after the court reconvened at 4pm local time, Chief Justice Anthony Dudley revealed his court had not been passed along any official applications from the American authorities, and so had declined to respond… ‘She is no longer a specified ship…and no longer subject to detention,’ the Gibraltar Chronicle quoted him as saying… The Iranian government, the paper said, had offered written assurances to Gibraltar authorities that the supertanker would not continue on to Syria after being allowed to set sail.”

Armed Jewish Settlers Storm Palestinian Town, Conduct Military Traininghttps://www.palestinechronicle.com/armed-jewish-settlers-storm-palestinian-town-conduct-military-training/ – “Jewish settlers stormed a town between the occupied West Bank areas of Nablus and Jenin… Palestinian Authority official Ghassan Daghlas said dozens of Jewish settlers stormed the occupied town of al-Masoudiya on Monday evening and conducted military training under the protection of the Israeli army… The majority of the settlers who occupied the area were armed young men and women.”

How the Government and Pharmaceutical Companies are Trying to Steal Cannabis – from Modern Alternative Mama –  https://modernalternativemama.com/2019/08/15/how-the-government-and-pharmaceutical-companies-are-trying-to-steal-cannabis/ – Cannabis has been in the news for years.  California was the first state to pass a medical marijuana law in 1996; followed by Colorado in 2000, which expanded to recreational in 2010. (source) 34 states now have medical marijuana laws on the books, and in 13 states, cannabis is fully legal, including recreational use.(source).. But while we’re making strides now, there is a long, dark history surrounding cannabis in the US.  The medical industry used criminalizing it to their advantage…and they’re poised to use legalizing it to their advantage, too.  We can’t allow them to do this to us after all they’ve already done to hurt the population.”

US move halts release of Iranian tanker held in Gibraltar – by Aritz Parra and Jon Gambrell, AP – https://www.msn.com/en-xl/middleeast/middleeast-top-stories/us-move-halts-release-of-iranian-tanker-held-in-gibraltar/ar-AAFQgrS – “The Gibraltar government confirmed earlier media reports that the U.S. Department of Justice had sought to extend the detention of the oil tanker Grace 1, prompting the Supreme Court in the territory to adjourn a scheduled decision on whether to release the ship until later in the day… ‘The U.S. Department of Justice has applied to seize the Grace 1 on a number of allegations, which are now being considered,’ the Gibraltar government said in a statement, adding that the matter would be reviewed by the court at 4 p.m. local time… The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”

Israel Plans To Carry Out Strikes On ‘Iranian-backed Militias’ In Iraq: Reportshttps://southfront.org/israel-plans-to-carry-out-strikes-on-iranian-backed-militias-in-iraq-reports/ – “Israel allegedly plans to strike Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) ammo stores, according to Iraqi security expert Fadhil Abu Ragheef, cited by RT Arabic: ‘Available information suggests that Israel is preparing to bomb the weapons caches of Hashd al-Sha’abi [the Arabic name of the PMU] forces, and not the command centers or fortifications of the fighters. This is quite likely to happen,’ Fadhil Abu Ragheef said…      He added that ‘what happened yesterday in the weapons depots south of Baghdad may be part of the plan that Israel is preparing.’.. The incident in question is a fire in an ammunition depot, resulting from an explosion in southern Baghdad. The camp, in which the depot was located belonged to the PMU.

Turkish-Backed Militants Target Syrian Army Vehicles, Gatherings With Guided Missiles (Videos) – https://southfront.org/turkish-backed-militants-target-syrian-army-vehicles-gatherings-with-guided-missiles-videos/ – “The Turkish-backed National Front for Liberation (NFL) targeted on August 13 and 14 several vehicles and a gathering of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) east of the town of Khan Shaykhun in Idlib’s southern countryside with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs)… The strikes destroyed two truck-mounted 57mm cannons, a battle tank and a vehicle near the towns of Sukayk and Tell Maraq. A gathering of Syrian soldiers in the outskirt of Tell Tar’I was also hit… While these strikes halted the SAA advance east of Khan Shaykhun, the army was able to reach the town’s western entrance after securing the villages of Kafr Ayn, Tall Aas, Khirbat Murshid and Mantar… This intense use of ATGMs indicates that Turkey is still supporting the NFL, which is now defending positions of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in Greater Idlib.”

Syrian Army Reached Khan Shaykhun’s Western Entrance After Resuming Its Advance In Southern Idlibhttps://southfront.org/syrian-army-reached-khan-shaykhuns-western-entrance-after-resuming-its-advance-in-southern-idlib/ – “Khan Shaykhun is located on the highway linking the Syrian capital, Damascus, with the city of Aleppo, the country’s industrial center. The town is also considered the gateway to the southern Idlib countryside… SAA troops are now reportedly situated only 2km away from Khan Shaykun’s western district. The assault on the town could begin in any given minute.”
How Real Power Kills or Rescues: Epstein Death Evidence so Far – by Makia Freeman – https://thefreedomarticles.com/epstein-death-evidence-so-far/Makia covers all of the important factoids in a concise report

Idaho Mother of Medically Kidnapped 16-Year-Old Indicted by Grand Jury and Re-arrested on Felony Injury to Child Chargeshttps://healthimpactnews.com/2019/idaho-mom-arrested-second-time-as-attempts-to-silence-her-fail-meanwhile-16-year-old-son-suffers-in-foster-care/ – “However, the night before the hearing, Kristine received a phone call from her attorney who informed her that the hearing had once again been canceled. She was told that Shari Dodge had gone to a grand jury instead, without the knowledge of her attorney, and received an indictment against Kristine… In other words, Prosecutor Shari Dodge took her “expert” witnesses, Dr. King and Dr. Barton, behind closed doors in order to secretly obtain the indictment through their hearsay allegations, which prevented Kristine from presenting her own witnesses and evidence as she would have been able to do at a preliminary hearing and also nullified Kristine’s right to have the preliminary hearing in front of a judge… Kristine points out that this is obviously a tactic done by the prosecutor to avoid public scrutiny of the hearing or to allow her to present the evidence that challenges the allegation of Injury to Child. Kristine says that Shari Dodge was afraid of the crowd at CPS hearing on July 16th, so: ‘she went behind my attorney’s back to get this indictment, obviously in part to avoid having to face me in court. She probably also didn’t want to have to walk past all those people again.’.. The grand jury indictment also means that Kristine was no longer able to have a hearing on the No Contact Order that was put into place in June, which currently prevents her from having off-site visits with her son and forces all visitation with Brandon to be in the CPS office, including his 16th birthday and homeschool graduation party.”

As US pressure increases on Iran-backed militias, they turn to Iran – by Ali Mamouri – https://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2019/08/iraq-iran-us-pmu.html – “Iran-backed Shiite militias have been under increasing pressure recently in Iraq not only from the United States — which monitors their activities closely — but also from the public and the Iraqi government… During an interview Aug. 9 with a small group of Iraqi and foreign media representatives, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi said he has already begun implementing a decree he issued last month regarding the regulation of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). Abdul Mahdi said although some of the PMU have concerns about the decree and have questioned it, ‘We are continuing the implementation of the decree as the majority of the PMU are supporting it.’ (comment: this is simply an obvious, blatant lie)… Kata’ib Hezbollah slammed the decree soon after it was issued in early July. A PMU website attributed the decree to US and Saudi pressure on Abdul Mahdi. Meanwhile, most of the PMU — including factions close to Ayatollah Ali Sistani such as al-Abbas Combat Division — have been silent about the decree, following all the prime minister’s orders as the commander-in-chief of the armed forces without resistance.”

Israel Has “the Most Moral Army in the World”? – The creepy French “intellectual” Bernard-Henri Levy gets it wrong – by Philip Giraldi – https://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-has-most-moral-army-world/5685063 – “Twelve Palestinians and four British observers were injured badly enough to be hospitalized. The British reported that they were ‘stamped on, dragged by the hair, strangled with a scarf and pepper sprayed by Israeli border police.’ One who was hospitalized described how Israeli soldiers dragged him by his feet, lifting him up, and kicking him in the stomach, while one soldier stamped on his head four times “at full force” before standing on his head and pulling his hair. Another suffered a fractured rib after ‘[the policeman] then stamped on my throat and others started punching my torso. It was a sadistic display of violence…’.. Yet another foreign observer was dragged out of the house, ‘…her hands were crushed so badly that she suffered a fractured knuckle on her left hand, and her right hand suffered severe tissue damage ‘which will be permanently misshapen unless she gets cosmetic surgery.’.’.. Edmond Sichrovsky, an Austrian activist of Jewish origin, who was in one of the houses, described how Israeli forces broke the door down, first dragging out the Palestinians, “knocking the grandfather to the floor in front of his crying and screaming grandchildren.” Cell phones were forcibly removed to eliminate any picture taking or filming before soldiers began attacking him and four other activists… I was repeatedly kicked and kneed, which left a bloody nose and multiple cuts, as well breaking my glasses from a knee in the face. Once outside, they slammed me against a car while shouting verbal insults at me and women activists, calling them whores.’ ”

US team begins establishing op center in Turkey for ‘safe zone’ in Syria – Planned US-Turkey operation center meant to keep Syria off balance: Analyst –  https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/08/13/603400/US – “A US delegation arrived in Turkey on Wednesday to set up the operation center in the country for the stated purpose of creating a “safe zone” in Syria… James Jatras, former US Senate foreign policy analyst, who also attended the show, described as “significant” the recent victories of Syrian government forces against the foreign-sponsored militants, saying “Washington wants to keep things as chaotic as possible… The political commentator further said ‘Syria has won this war but the United States does continue to have interests and objectives in the theater in the region and therefore keeping Syria off balance… The United States is trying to disrupt the consolidation of the Syrian government over its country so that it keeps it distracted by that particular task,’ and prevent it from working with  its allies, namely Iran and Russia, in the battle against terrorism, Michael Lane, founder of American Institute for Foreign Policy, told Press TV… ‘The United States’ purpose or vision is to keep Syria from becoming part of a triangle of Iran, Russia and Syria,’ he said.”

Texas Judge Chastises CPS but 4-Year-Old Boy Still Not Returned to Family – by Texas Home School Coalition Association – https://healthimpactnews.com/2019/texas-judge-chastises-cps-but-4-year-old-boy-still-not-returned-to-family/ – “Judge Tracy Gray chastised CPS for the ridiculous list of requests included in their report to the court. Judge Gray threw out every item challenged by the family’s attorneys, ordered CPS to “expedite” their efforts to place Drake with family or friends, and to start allowing the family to bring a third party witness to visits with Drake, something CPS has prohibited thus far… While the hearing was a great success for the family, there is still a long way to go. Judge Gray clearly appeared frustrated by CPS’ brazenly unconstitutional requests (like a court-ordered admission of guilt). This offers a ray of hope that CPS may not be able to continue getting away with their illegal actions.”

Ukrainian Army Will Reach Russia’s Rostov In Event Of Hostilities Resumption In Donbass: Ex-Military Spokespersonhttps://southfront.org/ukrainian-army-will-reach-russias-rostov-in-event-of-hostilities-resumption-in-donbass-ex-military-spokesperson/ – “The former speaker of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) claimed that if the case of an attack by forces of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (DPR and LPR), the UAF may mount a counteroffensive that could potentially reach Rostov… Speaking about the mythical DPR/LPR offensive along the Krivoy Rog-Kremenchug-Poltava-Kiev line, Vladislav Voloshin said: ‘It is almost impossible to do something like this, because today the Ukrainian army is one of the most combat-ready in Europe. Because we are waging a real war. And our front is multi-layered,’ he promised… ‘And here is the short answer of what will ensue over there, our army will probably reach Rostov.’ (Note: Rostov is 35km beyond the Russian border [!] )

Iran Warns that Israeli Presence In Persian Gulf Would Lead To Warhttps://southfront.org/iran-warns-that-israeli-presence-in-persian-gulf-would-lead-to-war/ – “Israel’s presence in the Persian Gulf may lead to a war in the region, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri told Lebanese TV channel Al Mayadeen… ‘The United States and the United Kingdom must assume responsibility for the Zionist regime’s illegal presence in the Persian Gulf waters.’.. ‘Any presence of the Zionist regime in the Persian Gulf waters is illegal, as it may result in war and confrontation in the region,’ Tangsiri warned… Tangsiri alleged that the US and UK are responsible for the situation in the Persian Gulf, mostly by fabricating the various scenarios that they use as justification for their deployments.”

Israel-born Treasury official is at the center of U.S. policies on Iran – by Alison Weir –  https://israelpalestinenews.org/israel-born-treasury-official-is-at-the-center-of-u-s-policies-on-iran/ – According to a just published report in the Atlantic and a previous article by a former CIA officer, an Israeli-born individual is at the center of U.S. policies targeting Iran… The Atlantic reports that financial sanctions are the “key tool” the United States has been using against Iran during  ‘the past three presidential administrations. ”And Treasury official Sigal Mandelker” is the one with her hand on the lever.’.. According to the article, ‘Because Trump is anxious to avoid war with Iran but also eager to push the Iranians, she is one of the most powerful officials designing the strategy Trump’s administration hopes will force Iranian capitulation—or, failing that, perhaps even the government’s collapse.’.. Mandelker has been working on governmental policies since 2006 – the year in which U.S. officials ‘focused on finding ways to cut off Iran from the global financial system.’.. In the years just before her 2017 Under Secretary appointment, Mandelker was a partner at Proskauer Rose LLP, a powerful, politically connected international law firm with ties to Israel. The pro-Israel website Algemeiner,* reports: ‘Historically, Proskauer Rose was known as a ‘Jewish’ law firm.’  Partner Joseph M. Proskauer was ‘a Democratic Party stalwart, friend of politicians, state judge, civic and philanthropic personality, and major fund raiser for the state of Israel.’.. It appears that Mandelker is or was an Israeli citizen who was born in Israel. While this is periodically referred to in Israeli and Jewish media, the Treasury Department has refused to answer whether Mandelker is still an Israeli citizen, despite numerous email and phone inquiries requesting this information about a high U.S. official… The information is particularly relevant since U.S. attacks on Israel’s neighbors are often pushed by Israel partisans concerned with maintaining Israeli hegemony in the region.”

This Will Not Make You a Superhero (or a god) (49 min) – by Truthstream Media – The accelerating push to coerce humanity into accepting such “modifications” of our biology as “brain-computer interfaces” is a very long term project, fronted by salesmen like Elon Musk.

“Opposition” or Terrorists? Who Is Syria and Russia Targeting in Idlib? – by Tony Cartalucci – https://www.globalresearch.ca/opposition-terrorists-who-syria-russia-bombing-idlib/5686183 – “Were the situation reversed and the West was faced with an entire province or state occupied by Al Qaeda and its myriad of affiliates – total war would commence and would not end until the targeted region was purged entirely of militants. Civilian causalities would either go uncounted and under-reported, or spun as a necessity in confronting an otherwise intolerable bastion of armed terrorism… Terrorist forces have been concentrated in Idlib as Syrian forces pushed them out of virtually every other populated region of the country. Even the liberation of the City of Aleppo took years to achieve. Idlib is an entire governorate bordering Turkey which is still arming and protecting terrorist organizations both within Turkish territory itself and in Syrian territory occupied by Turkish forces… If there is one point of hope amid this still dangerous and deadly conflict – it’s that the Western media and inveterate war propagandists like Scott Lucas are no longer able to conceal the true nature of terrorists they have aided and abetted since 2011… They will continue trying nonetheless – but as Lucas just managed to do – will succeed only in exposing more of the network the US and its allies used in their proxy war against Damascus – thus further undermining regime change efforts in Syria and complicating similar attempts to target and overthrow other nations in the future.”

Criminal Embargoes: Venezuela and Iran in the Crosshairs of Murderers Inc – Who Is Next? – by Peter Koenig – https://www.globalresearch.ca/criminal-embargoes-venezuela-iran-crosshairs-murderers-inc-who-next/5686080 – “The latest is an open declaration of economic warfare by Washington, a total embargo on Venezuela; the embargo is now being turned into a naval blockade. Similar steps are to be taken for Iran. That literally means that no merchandise – no matter how vital for survival, like food and medication, is allowed into Venezuela. Three days ago, the US seized, totally illegally, a cargo ship attempting to deliver food and medication to Venezuela – in the Panama Canal, territory which the US does not own or control anymore… The ship was carrying soy cakes, from which Venezuela was to produce food. Never mind, that the cargoes are fully paid for by Venezuela. And this seems to be just the beginning. Vessels leaving Venezuela with petrol deliveries to client countries are also targeted for blockage, thus confiscating, or rather stealing, Venezuela’s main source of income on which she intends to survive and feed and provide health care for her people. This, in addition to the more than 130 billion dollars total Venezuelan assets confiscated – stolen – by the US worldwide… And nobody says beep. Almost.”

The FBI’s Alleged Conspiracy Theorist-Terrorist Connection Is Anti-American – by Andrew Korybko – https://www.globalresearch.ca/fbi-alleged-conspiracy-theorist-terrorist-connection-anti-american/5685908 – “The de-facto criminalization of free speech is an ongoing trend in American society that’s already pressured a lot of people to self-censor their beliefs in public in order to avoid official scrutiny from the authorities or harassment by their political opponents, but an intelligence bulletin released by the FBI’s Phoenix office back in May and only reported on by the Mainstream Media earlier this month might spread the dragnet even further by de-facto criminalizing the online pursuit of additional information that contradicts the official narrative about various events… The “secret police” (as they’d be described by the Mainstream Media if any other country’s version of the FBI was being reported on) believe that a connection exists between so-called “conspiracy theories” and domestic terrorism, and while there have veritably been some people who hold such controversially defined beliefs and ended up killing others, it’s anti-American to suspect that anyone engaged in seeking out all sides of every story (no matter how possibly implausible) automatically qualifies as a potential terrorist.”
