"Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings and blood of their ancestors; and capable, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence...Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them." -- Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution

FLASHBACK: Fossils From Animals And Plants Are Not Necessary For Crude Oil And Natural Gas, Swedish Researchers Find

What would happen if it were proven that "fossil fuels" weren't the result of decaying plant and animal matter, were actually created within the Earth due to simple chemistry and you could not be scared into believing that we were "running out" of oil and natural gas?

Estimates of how much crude oil we have extracted from the planet vary wildly. As late as May of 2009 a report published in the International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology suggested that we may have used more than we think.

FLASHBACK: Does the Earth re-fuel itself?

by Ciaran Ryan

Every 10-year-old knows that oil comes from the decomposed remains of dinosaurs, a theory first floated by Russian scholar Mikhailo Lomonosov in 1757.
According to this theory, rock oil forms over millions of years from the action of heat and pressure on animal remains buried in sediment. The so-called "fossil fuel" theory remained largely unchallenged for 200 years until Russian academics, led by Nikolai Kudryavtsev, suggested that hydrocarbons (from which oil derives) are generated deep within the Earth from inorganic materials.

The notion that petroleum is abiotic (not related to living organisms) in origin has been accepted as scientific fact in the former Soviet Union for 50 years, yet Western science clings to the contradictory fossil fuel theory.

Understanding why they lie and why they get away with it

Is there really anybody out there who will deny that the US government lies pretty much about everything and anything?. And it’s not just the Executive Branch, Congress lies possibly even more (both parties, of course). In fact, I would argue that lying is both necessary AND expected from any US politician. When somebody like Tulsi Gabbard or Ron Paul don’t abide by this rule, the media immediately dismisses them as “Putin agents” or something equally insipid.

The truth is that lies have become the norm of the western political discourse.

That is bad enough by itself. But there is worse.

The worst is not that western politicians lie, the worst is that almost nobody cares.

That is really scary.

Why?

The Suicidal Empire

There are a lot of behaviors being exhibited by those in positions of power in the US that seem disparate and odd. We watch Trump who is imposing sanctions on country after country, dreaming of eradicating his country’s structural trade deficit with the rest of the world. We watch pretty much all of US Congress falling over each other in their attempt to impose the harshest possible sanctions on Russia. People in Turkey, a key NATO country, are literally burning US dollars and smashing iPhones in a fit of pique. Confronted with a new suite of Russian and Chinese weapons systems that largely neutralize the ability of the US to dominate the world militarily, the US is setting new records in the size of its already outrageously bloated yet manifestly ineffectual defense spending.

'Police were WRONG to check my thinking': Businessman's 'transphobic' tweets were LAWFUL and officers breached HIS rights by acting like 'the STASI' and arriving at his work to quiz him about 'hate incident', judge rules

Announcing the court's decision, Mr Justice Julian Knowles said Mr Miller's tweets were 'lawful' and that the effect of the police turning up at Mr Miller's place of work 'because of his political opinions must not be underestimated'.

He added: 'To do so would be to undervalue a cardinal democratic freedom. In this country we have never had a Cheka, a Gestapo or a Stasi. We have never lived in an Orwellian society.'

He also said: 'The claimant's tweets were lawful and that there was not the slightest risk that he would commit a criminal offence by continuing to tweet.

'I find the combination of the police visiting the claimant's place of work, and their subsequent statements in relation to the possibility of prosecution, were a disproportionate interference with the claimant's right to freedom of expression because of their potential chilling effect.'

MIT researchers find voting app used in West Virginia's 2018 midterm election is 'riddled with security risks' allowing hackers to easily alter, stop or expose how an individual voted

West Virginia allowed residents to cast their vote in the 2018 midterm election using the smartphone app Voatz and thousands are expected to use the technology in this year’s election.

However, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say the app 'is so riddled with security issues that no one should be using it.'

The vulnerabilities hidden in the technology give hackers the ability to alter, stop or expose how an individual users has voted.

Researchers also uncovered that Voatz's use of a third-party vendor for voter identification and verification poses potential privacy issues for users.

Astronomers behind the new observations say while the star will go supernova at some point, the dimming is more likely caused by either a cooling of the surface or the ejection of dust blocking some of its light from Earth.

Settlers to Netanyahu: If you want our votes, apply sovereignty now

Settlers and right-wing activists warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he would lose votes for the March 2 election unless he applied sovereignty to the West Bank settlements now.
"If you want the support of the Right – act like you are the leader of the Right,” Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said as he addressed a rally of several thousand that was held on the street outside Netanyahu’s Jerusalem residence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion piece on this issue, at rt.com, with the following headline; US envoy warns Washington could pull support as Israel unilaterally starts drawing map for West Bank annexations

The story goes on to state: "Unilateral action by Israel to annex land in the West Bank would endanger US support for a proposed blueprint for the region, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has said.
“Israel is subject to the completion [of] a mapping process by a joint Israeli-American committee. Any unilateral action in advance of the completion of the committee process endangers the Plan & American recognition,” Friedman said, in a message posted on Twitter."

I would strongly suggest, that this article is only for the consumption of Middle Eastern countries' leadership, to make it appear that the US will pull support, if Tel Aviv goes ahead with this prior to the 2 March elections.

I would also politely suggest, that the US really has no intention of going ahead with pulling support from Israel on this issue, if Netanyahu feels that his hand is forced, and he does this to appease these settlers, pre-election.

Young man killed in US-Syrian skirmish, further escalation stopped ‘only’ due to Russian mediation – Russian MOD

A 22-year-old Syrian was killed while another man was injured during an altercation between US troops and locals in northern Syria, the Russian military said. The showdown happened after a US convoy diverged from its patrol route.

Editor’s note: This article has been corrected to reflect the young man killed was 22, not 14 as initially reported.

The incident took place near the village of Khirbet Amo, east of the town of Qamishli on Wednesday. Clashes broke out after the American patrol veered off its expected route and was stopped at a Syrian Army checkpoint, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for this young man's family and friends; and that being said, can anyone, please, actually logically explain to me what the hell we are doing, militarily, in Syria, other than potentially annoying Russia so much with this military misadventure, that Moscow will see no other way of dealing with it, than to conduct a savage military campaign against American military resources here>?!?

Obama Intervened, Repeatedly, in Ongoing Trials and Investigations

Few of the critics who are treating President Donald Trump’s comments on Roger Stone’s sentencing — widely viewed as unduly harsh — as an attack on the rule of law showed such strong concerns when then-President Barack Obama weighed in, repeatedly, on ongoing trials or investigations.

In 2015, President Obama told CBS news that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured private email server for her official communications may have been a “mistake,” but added: “I don’t think it posed a national security problem.”

The New York Times reported that FBI officials: “saw an instance of the president trying to influence the outcome of a continuing investigation — and not for the first time.” The officials recalled Obama’s comments in 2012 defending then-CIA director David Petraeus, who was under investigation for sharing classified information with a journalist with whom he was having an affair.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But of course, President Obama was supposed to have been "the cool" President, so all these interventions were pretty well buried; when President Trump makes observations in these directions, because he has been labeled "the King of the Deplorables by the Clintonistas, (including yours Truly, a dean's scholar college graduate), you can bet your sweet bippy that every move he makes in this direction, no matter however moderated, is going to catch the excrement.

CITIES CREATE NEW WAYS TO EXPAND NEIGHBORHOOD SURVEILLANCE PROGRAMS

SOURCE: MASS PRIVATE I
City and towns are creating new ways to expand neighborhood surveillance programs known as police cam-share programs.

An article in The Baltimore Sun revealed that the Baltimore County Council wants more businesses and homeowners to purchase CCTV surveillance equipment.

"The bill would create a voluntary private security camera registry for property owners with devices pointed toward a public right-of-way, according to the proposal. The program would map where cameras are located to help detectives identify possible security footage in areas where crimes happened."

How do cities and towns expand police cam-share programs? By offering to waive permitting fees, that’s how.

That is what makes the Baltimore County Council’s Bill unique from other police cam-share programs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; does this actually make cities really safer; or provide more ways for police to spy on the lives of everyday, normal people, just going about their business?!?

My gut says, this is the latter, rather than the former.

'DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE GLOBAL CAMPAIGN PLAN FOR PANDEMIC INFLUENZA AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES 3551-13'

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER, GUEST POSTING

It appears that the U.S. military is taking this coronavirus outbreak extremely seriously. An executive order has been issued which has initiated the implementation of “the Department of Defense Global Campaign plan for Pandemic Influenza and Infectious Diseases 3551-13”. We don’t know all of the details of the plan, but we do know that it instructs U.S. military officials “to prepare for widespread outbreaks”. Many in the mainstream media continue to try to convince us that this virus is not much more dangerous than the common flu, but if that is true then why is our military taking such a dramatic step? The following comes from a Military Times article…

Recall the notorious case of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, whose 1965 report on the terrible deterioration in the condition of the black American family aroused such a firestorm of denunciation and outrage in liberal circles that the topic was rendered totally radioactive for the better part of a generation. Eventually the continuing deterioration reached such massive proportions that the subject was taken up again by prominent liberals in the 1980s, who then declared Moynihan a prophetic voice, unjustly condemned.

SENATE PASSES WAR POWERS ACT LIMITING TRUMP’S AUTHORITY TO LAUNCH MILITARY OPERATIONS AGAINST IRAN

SOURCE: NBC NEWS

The Senate backed legislation Thursday to limit President Donald Trump’s ability to wage war against Iran, rebuking him after a strike against an Iranian military commander and Tehran’s retaliation last month raised fears of broader regional conflict.

Eight of Trump’s fellow Republicans joined Democrats to pass the war powers resolution by 55-45. The measure would require Trump to remove U.S. troops engaged in hostilities against Iran unless Congress declares war or passes a specific authorization for the use of military force.

Let our news meet your inbox. The news and stories that matters, delivered weekday mornings.

Trump has promised a veto and there is not expected to be enough support in the Senate to muster the two-thirds majority to override. Republicans in the chamber hold 53 of the 100 seats and rarely vote against the president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Senate was absolutely correct in doing this, because the Constitution very unambiguously states that only Congress can declare war.

That being said, it is very unfortunate that President Trump's veto will be allowed to stand; because, sooner or later, in light of the reality that the President is pathologically incapable of seeing the country of Iran other than through the jaundiced eyes of one of his BFFs in the Middle East, Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, we are looking at a US war against Iran.

I would politely like to remind the President, Congress, the State Department, and the Pentagon, of a promise made last summer, by a Russian Diplomat, at a Symposium attended by Iranian delegates. This headline, from the Moscow Times, English language edition, and was published on 26 June, 2019: Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The article goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow."

Kabulov went on to say: "“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

So there you have it, folks; if the US invades Iran, Russia, and probably a number of yet-unspecified countries, will be willing to come to its aid against the US, and its consortium.

Zabulov, and other high Russian officials, when making statements like this, are making them because they are coming from both President Putin and the Russian Duma; I would like, please, for the officials in the US to remember this, as they are evolving a US Iran policy, which most likely will force the US to fight to "defend Israel", if the deal between Pompeo and Netanyahu, begun last December, comes to fruition this year: Netanyahu, Pompeo push forward with US-Israel defense pact

The JPost article goes on to state: "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made progress on a defense pact between their countries in their meeting in Lisbon this week, Netanyahu said on Thursday.

“The meeting with Pompeo was critical for Israeli security,” Netanyahu said of the discussion that took an hour and 45 minutes on Wednesday. “We agreed to promote a defense pact.”

Translation: this means that the US military would be forced to defend Israel in the region and beyond, even if Israel (as is so frequently the case) perpetrated some major mischief against its neighbors from which it cannot extricate itself, without US military assistance/aggression.

And BTW, if this gets passed after the annual AIPAC meeting in DC in March, does anyone in this country beside me, feel a draft?!?

Folks, particularly the parents, families, and friends, of American teenages; be afraid, be very afraid, should this legislation get passed.

As if the COVid-19 breakout across the world wasn't enough, there's another rare occurrence of an apocalyptic event unfolding across east African countries as hundreds of millions of locusts descend on farm fields and cities.

These creatures have been reported to travel in swarms of millions that can sometimes measure up to 40 miles wide. These insects are now pushing through Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia.

"Huge" infestation is threatening to destroy communities and economies in east Africa that is entirely reliant on local food supply. One media source likened it to a Biblical Locust Plague With Swarms the Size of Cities.

The invading locusts are "deadly" in the sense that these 'mega-swarms' devour crops at an incredibly rapid pace — at a faster rate of destruction than other natural disasters.

Did the Israeli Prime Minister Just Openly Admit to Interfering in US Policies?

The Israeli Prime Minister's official Twitter account posted a thread attacking the UN Human Rights Council for "its bias against Israel" and revealing his government's role in "promoting laws in most US states to take action" against the international body, which triggered angry reactions from Americans.

Bloomberg is avoiding all scrutiny. It's time to take a long, hard look at his views

Michael Bloomberg wants to be president of the United States yet faces little to no scrutiny. Black and brown men of New York City have been interrogated more than he has. Other candidates appear on debate stages to be questioned by the American people. Not Bloomberg. Thanks to his wealth, he can afford to sidestep this process entirely by spending millions on TV ads. Is that fair? Surely anyone who wants to be president of United States needs to be vetted. That’s why I decided to dig through reams of video and audio footage of the former mayor. What I discovered was deeply troubling.

FEDERAL PROSECUTORS RECOMMEND 5-YEAR JAIL TERM FOR CORRUPT FORMER BALTIMORE MAYOR

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh could receive upwards of 5-years in jail for her criminal acts of conspiracy and tax evasion, according to The Baltimore Sun.

"The facts establish that Pugh deliberately engaged in a broad range of criminal acts while serving as Maryland state senator and mayor of Baltimore City," federal persecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

In Nov., we noted that Pugh pleaded guilty to four of the 11 charges, including wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and two counts of tax evasion.

The statement from prosecutors includes allegations that Pugh used her position of power to defraud the customers of "Healthy Holly" children’s book series for personal use and also to fund her mayoral campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good; compared with what the lady actually did, the 5 year sentence is almost a "slap on the wrist", and most certainly will be served in the cushiest Club Fed that her "Prison Advisor" can find for her.

Oh, and BTW, the Baltimore Public Schools were places where this was allowed to happen:

Can you skip 47 days of class and still graduate? In Maryland's largest school system, the answer is yes

Baltimore public school changing grades so students can graduate, just like Democrats alter votes so Leftists can win elections

These, taken together, are a form of child abuse of the highest order; the point of education, is that the teenager being educated, will graduate nummerate; literate; and imminently capable of true critical thinking.

Unfortunately, in the public schools of Baltimore, none of this was actually happening under Mayor Pugh's watch.

US spied on governments for decades through secret ownership of Swiss encryption firm

The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and National Security Agency (NSA) have been spying on the encrypted communications of governments all over the world for the past five decades through the CIA’s secret ownership of a global security firm based in Switzerland.

According to a lengthy report in the Washington Post on Tuesday, the CIA-owned company known as Crypto AG sold diplomatic encryption technologies to more than half of the countries in the world for the past half-century, all the while with US intelligence eavesdropping on their communications.
