President Xi Warns "Stopping The Storm And Restoring Order" In Hong Kong Is China's Top Priority

pdate 2: Pretty soon, all of the students working to transform their campuses into fortresses against the Hong Kong police might be facing an even more formidable foe: The People's Liberation Army.

Foreshadowing the possibility that the Hong Kong protest movement could end with a Tiananmen Square-like mass-casualty incident - at least that's what we gleaned from remarks made by President Xi at the BRIC leaders summit in Brasilia.

According to a post on Weibo (China's answer to Twitter), Xi told his fellow BRIC leaders that stabilizing Hong Kong had become a serious challenge, and warned that "stopping the storm and restoring order" is a "most urgent task".

Here's a translation of the Weibo post, describing Xi's remarks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the bigger question has to be, will a massive crackdown end the demonstrations?!?

I frankly, am not sure they will.

It appears that even though these demonstrators have been met with live fire; teargas, and worse, there appears to be a "toughening up moment" happening right now, when they just don't seem to care about the possibility that the crossfire could actually kill them.

And if this happens, what President Xi's troops of the Liberation Army may be able to accomplish, other than killing a lot of people, will be very limited in scope, in terms of ratcheting the violence down.

I wouldn't want to be in that man's shoes right now for anything; if his efforts fail, he will "lose face", both at home and abroad, and his vision for the Belt/Road project, may well vanish along with his Presidency.

He cannot be seen as having "made a bad move here", either by Hong Kong residents; Chinese citizens;, or the international community.

He knows, without any doubt, that any wrong read or judgement of the demonstrators, will have the 24/7 cable cycle grinding him up, and spitting him out.

"No, No, You Guys; This US-Backed Military Coup Is Perfectly Legitimate!"

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

I just keep tripping on how dumb this latest US-backed military coup is. It’s in Bolivia in case you’ve lost track, which would be perfectly understandable since US-backed coups have become kind of like US mass shootings — there’s so many of them they’re starting to blend into each other.

I mean, for starters the justifications for this one are so cartoonishly reachy and desperate it boggles the mind a bit. The main argument you’ll see in favor of the coup is that Evo Morales was elected after Bolivia’s high court ruled that he could run for a fourth term, but the (democratically elected) court ruled against a 2016 referendum on presidential term limits.

That’s it. That weird, pedantic appeal to a particular interpretation of bureaucratic technicalities is the whole entire argument in support of a literal military coup backed by the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) So what does this little country have, for which international (and US) businesses hunger for so mightily, that put it in the calendar for regime change in November of 2019?!?

Here, in a word, is what happened; and that word is "lithium."

The Grayzone has published an article documenting this coup’s many ties to Washington. Put it all together, and you’ve got a US-backed military coup

The story goes on to state: "The overthrow of the elected leader cannot be understood without a glance at the nation's massive reserves of this crucial mineral."

by Vijay Prashad

"Bolivia’s key reserves are in lithium, which is essential for the electric car. Bolivia claims to have 70 percent of the world’s lithium reserves, mostly in the Salar de Uyuni salt flats. The complexity of the mining and processing has meant that Bolivia has not been able to develop the lithium industry on its own. It requires capital, and it requires expertise."

Tesla (United States) and Pure Energy Minerals (Canada) both showed great interest in having a direct stake in Bolivian lithium. But they could not make a deal that would take into consideration the parameters set by the Morales government. Morales himself was a direct impediment to the takeover of the lithium fields by the non-Chinese transnational firms. He had to go.

After the coup, Tesla’s stock rose astronomically."

Here's The Moment Erdogan's White House Visit Took "A Dark Turn"

It was clear in yesterday's press briefing during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to the White House, where he didn't actually receive much push back from either President Trump or the press (at one point Trump requested that only a "friendly" reporter from Turkey ask questions of Erdogan), that the touchy subject of Turkey's acquirement of Russia's S-400 anti-air system was front and center in closed door conversations.

But Erdogan appeared unmoved by whatever pressure he may have faced in the Oval, given he later told reporters while standing next to the US president that Turkey cannot possibly discard the S-400 due to its strategic ties wit Russia, but he also added, “I’ve told Mr. Trump that we’re ready to buy Patriots.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully obvious, that Erdogan has begun a slow, but unmistakable, pivot toward Russia, in both in its economic choices, and the weaponry it chooses to use with which to defend Turkey.

Paul Craig Roberts Rages At The Latest 'False' Trump Impeachment News

As the media are all out to get Trump, there is no way to get any valid information about the so-called impeachment. But you don’t have to pay too much attention to notice that the Democrats and the presstitutes are constantly changing the focus. The alleged whistleblower, who only had hearsay information, if that, has dropped out of the picture, being too compromised by his affiliations and prior meetings with Adam Schiff during which the “whistleblowing” was planned as an attack on Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the sorriest, most nasty, vile display of purely partisan politics I have ever seen in my life; and at 70, I have seen more than a few of these incidents.

Leaked Bank Records Confirm Burisma-Biden Payments To Morgan Stanley Account

Documents allegedly leaked by the Ukrainian General Prosecutor's office to CD Media have shed light on payments from Burisma Holdings to Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC, a corporation controlled by Hunter Biden partner (and fellow former Burisma board member) Devon Archer.

Archer was Yale roommates with John Kerry's stepson Chris Heinz - the two of whom opened investment firm Rosemont Capital with Joe Biden's son, Hunter. Rosemont Capital is the parent company of Rosemont Seneca Partners, LLC - the entity which receive the Burisma payments and in turn aid Biden.

The newly leaked records show 45 payments between November 2014 and November 2015 totaling $3.5 million, mostly in increments of $83,333.33. The payments correspond to Morgan Stanley bank records the New York Times reported on earlier this year. The records were submitted as evidence in a case against Archer who was convicted in a scheme to defraud pension funds and an Indian tribe of tens of millions of dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BADA BING, BADA BOOM, BADA BING!!!

IS this what his dad, Joe Biden, means when he says his son Hunter "did nothing wrong"?!?

Apparently, Father and Son have both had their consciences surgically removed, to believe that this represents "doing nothing wrong, followed by Biden's threat/attempt to shake the Ukrainian government down, if the government didn't fire the prosecutor looking into Burisma.

500+ COMBAT ROBOTS SET TO STRENGTHEN INDIAN ARMY DEFENSES IN KASHMIR – MEDIA

SOURCE: RT
The Indian Army will soon reinforce its strength in Kashmir with hundreds of combat robots capable of lobbing grenades, overcoming obstacles, and carrying out search-and-rescue raids, local media report.
The Defense Ministry is looking for around 550 “robotic surveillance units,” each with a 25-year lifespan, according to Indian media, citing military sources. “These robots should be capable enough for water fording with minimum 20 cm depth,” an unnamed officer told Livemint.

Once acquired, the robots will be sent to the Rashtriya Rifles, the Indian Army’s counter-insurgency force. The unit will use them in built-up areas to gather intelligence on terrorists’ movements.

Aside from collecting imagery intelligence, the unmanned vehicles will be armed and capable of firing “suitable munitions at the intended target, for example, throwing grenade at places where the terrorists are holed up,” the source explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What could possibly go wrong with these robots, other than the cold, hard
reality that they have no morality to tell them whether they are aiming at a bad guy, or attempting to shoot an infant out of its mother's arms?!?

I very much fear, that these robots will become instruments of mass genocide against every possible Muslim Kashmiri, and Pakistani non-combatant possible; children; women; infants; and the medically fragile elderly.

(Sigh) I have no magic wand to wave at this situation; I can only hope (and pray) that the "adults in the room" of global geopolitics (and guys, you know who you are), start working the phones like crazy between Islamabad and New Dehli, and attempting to ratchet the tension here down.

Because if a calming of tensions does not happen, we are looking, potentially, at a full-scale hot war, between two nuclear armed adversaries.

DARPA WANTS INSECTS TO SPREAD GENETICALLY MODIFIED VIRUSES… TO ‘SAVE CROPS’

A US military program dubbed ‘Insect Allies’ could be used as a biological weapon, a group of European scientists warns. The Pentagon’s research arm claims they are intended to defend crops, but doesn’t deny ‘dual-use’ potential.
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology and the University of Freiburg in Germany, as well as the University of Montpellier, France, have published a critique of the program, dubbed “Insect Allies,” in the October 5 edition of Science.

They argue that “the knowledge to be gained from this program appears very limited in its capacity to enhance US agriculture or respond to national emergencies” and therefore the program “may be widely perceived as an effort to develop biological agents for hostile purposes and their means of delivery,” which would mean a breach of the Biological Weapons Convention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Dr. Bextine, a word, please; that phrase "nothing could possibly go wrong" has been used innumerable times, when life-threatening scenarios hit, and did their worst, despite the best of precautions being taken.

What is the three independent kill switches go "mammary glands vertical", at the same precise moment?

Do you, or your colleagues have a contingency plan for THAT?!?

I would believe, sir, that the short, and duly embarrassed answer for that would be, "UH...no!"

THE U.S. NATIONAL DEBT JUST HIT THE 23 TRILLION DOLLAR MARK AS WE CONTINUE TO STEAMROLL TOWARD FINANCIAL OBLIVION

SOURCE: MICHAEL SNYDER @ THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
This week, the U.S. national debt reached the 23 trillion dollar mark for the first time ever. There was no fanfare, there were no politicians giving speeches about fiscal responsibility, and there has been very little national outrage. We have simply come to accept that it is “normal” for our national debt to grow at an exponential rate, but the truth is that we are literally committing national suicide. Given enough time, there is no doubt that this colossal mountain of debt will kill our Republic, and yet fiscal responsibility is not even a major national issue any longer. Everyone seems to be okay with the fact that we are stealing more than 100 million dollars every single hour of every single day from future generations of Americans and destroying the bright future that they were supposed to have. What we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is beyond criminal, and yet very few of us seem to care.

Unfortunately, puting the nation's budget "on a sustainable path", may only happen when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

Rand Paul Drops The 'C'-Word: Names Whistleblower, Demands Testimony

A week ago, Senator Rand Paul said that he might release the whistleblower's name.

Over the weekend, Senator Paul said the whistleblower's name should be released.

And today, Senator Paul has named the whistleblower publicly...Eric Ciamerella.

During a Wednesday interview on Washington, D.C.-based WMAL, Paul named Ciaramella himself and said he should be brought in testify to clarify whether he is indeed the whistleblower.

“I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony, and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point,” said Paul.

“But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there when Hunter Biden was working for the Ukrainian oligarch. So simply for that alone, I think he’s a material witness who needs to be brought in.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

"Europe Is Dying" - 50,000 Polish 'Patriots' March To Save Country From "Disastrous European Union"

More than 50,000 Polish nationalists paraded on the streets of Warsaw for this year's Independence March on Monday.

Tens of thousands of people, waving Polish flags, were young and old, of all walks of life, with whole families took to the streets.

Poland shifted towards nationalism when Law and Justice (PiS) party came to power in 2015.

PiS has asked citizens to abandon Western liberalism for patriotism and Roman Catholic values.

Attendees lit flares and marched through the streets chanting more slogans: "Not Islamic or secular, but Catholic Poland," "No to abortion," and "Great Poland is our goal."

A thirty-eight million nation in the heart of Europe (i.e., with a population approximately the size of Spain's) has been revolting against the EU establishment and its view of European unity based on cultural and religious indifference and anti-nationalism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is it that people who believe in values of country, and at least some degree of national pride, are always tarred with the brush of being in league with the "...far right"?!?!?

Folks, here's the deal for me; I am an American first; if there are certain values I hold as being important, such as immigration integration, and EVERYONE being able to practice their religion (or lack thereof) as they chose, does that make me NEO-anything?!?

When, please, did this become bad and wrong, both for Europe, and the US?!?

If there are financial arrangements with other countries, and other groups of countries which benefit me, and my brother and sister Americans, I am generally for it; but please do not ask me to support unfettered immigration, where the immigrants want to push their lifestyles on me.

Anyone who ever talked to me, for all of a minute, would understand that I am the polar opposite of racist, or right-wing; but if financial agreements among nations, and unfettered immigration are not helping me, the people I care about, and the country as a whole, how can I, in my right mind, support them?!?

The problem is, the people who create these situations, never have to live with the consequences of having done so.

'Mental instablity': Psychiatrists who called Trump dangerous want to testify on impeachment

If this continues much longer the country will be in a full blown civil war with all the chaos that will ensue.

A group of medical experts who claim that President Trump's mental health makes him dangerous and unfit for office is seeking to testify during House impeachment proceedings.

The group, comprising four psychiatrists, a clinical neuropsychologist, a neurologist, and an internist, are planning to announce their availability next week to members of Congress and the media. They'll also be available to consult privately with members of Congress, with 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, or with members of Trump's cabinet.

Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale School of Medicine psychiatrist, announced the group's plans to the Washington Examiner on Friday.

US Drones Capture Footage Of Pro-Turkish Forces Engaged In Shocking War Crimes

Entirely to be expected, a new report in The Wall Street Journal has found that Turkish-backed Syrian forces currently fighting US-backed Kurdish groups as part of 'Operation Peace Spring' are guilty of war crimes, including summary executions of Kurdish civilians.

"U.S. military officials watched live drone feeds last month that appeared to show Turkish-backed Arab gunmen targeting civilians during their assault on Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria, attacks the Americans reported to their commanders as possible war crimes, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the incidents," reports the WSJ.

What the report fails to mention, however, is the blatantly obvious and relevant recent history that the Islamist militants carrying out such atrocities are the very same militants which were a few short years ago funded, armed and trained by the CIA and Pentagon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just makes me physically sick.

Can someone, please, identify that moment in time, when I signed on, as a citizen of the United States of America, to be a citizen of a country which either engaged in war crimes, or one which just allowed them to happen, and there were no repercussions against them?!?

I really need some help on this folks, because THIS is my moment... of "selective memory disorder", I absolutely cannot recall having done this, so if anyone wants to clue me in, you're due a profound "thank you."

Do you remember the codswallop we all got force-fed in public school, about how great and noble this country was, and that it was a country which could never, ever be in the morally wrong, at any time, and through any choices its leadership had made?!?

Well, for me, my "Buddha on the Road" came while I was a senior in High School, and the VietNam war was raging; it was great for the military/industrial complex, but pretty lousy for those conscripted to fight this war, and their families.

Many came home in a cheap metal casket; others came home maimed for life; and others may have physically present, but were suffering from any possible number of stress-induced traumas.

Then, those Veterans who DID come home, were not greeted with at least some compassion, but were abused, and humiliated for doing what their country's government directed them to do; it should have been those elements in the US government who perpetuated this immoral war, who should have been rightly reviled, tried, and convicted of their war crimes, and put away at a facility which was NOT a "Club Fed."

I cannot keep from thinking, that had that madness stopped sooner than it was, and the truly guilty were tried and convicted, we would not be in Syria; Afghanistan; Iraq; or Niger today.

But in looking at the current situations in the above-referenced countries, I am reminded of the phrase that "Those who do not learn from history...are doomed to repeat it."

"Confidence Could Crumble": Global Markets Slide After Trump Threatens More China Tariffs, Hong Kong Tensions Soar

One day after Trump's long-awaited NY Economic Club speech proved to be a dud, with the president having nothing positive or "optimistic" to say about the China trade deal instead slamming the Fed again for not cutting rates to negative, the investing public today will focus on Fed Chair Powell's testimony in Congress in which he lays out his own take on things.

Until then, however, US futures and global stocks are a sea of red after Trump threatened to “substantially” increase tariffs if China failed to agree a trade deal and said there may also be tariffs to come for other countries “that mistreat us”, while European stocks followed Asia into the red following a subdued start, with Hong Kong tensions also denting sentiment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One does have to wonder about the timing of these demonstrations, vis a vis the trade negotiations going on right now; as any great magician or comedian will tell you, timing...is everything.

We will never know how much the US, and other Western Countries, may be "applying pressure" through these protests. to get some concessions on Chinese trade; but the older I become, the less I believe in...coincidences.

"It's Now June 4, 1989" - Hong Kong Paralyzed For 3rd Day As Demonstrators Prepare For War

Violent protests continued in Hong Kong for a third day on Wednesday, crippling transport links and clogging roads, and prompting many major companies in the city, including HSBC and BNP Paribas, to instruct employees to stay home from work to avoid the risk of physical harm.

And in anticipation of more violence tomorrow,the Hong Kong Education Bureau has said that all kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools and special education needs schools will cancel class on Thursday for safety reasons, according to an official statement. Most universities in Hong Kong have suspended classes until next week or converted them to online-only for the rest of the semester. And after the clashes from earlier this week, more than 80 mainland Chinese students have been evacuated for their own safety.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I abhor communism as a system, I have to feel just the tiniest bit of sympathy for China's President Xi.

Looking at these demonstrations, he has got to be asking himself right now, "if I get more horrifically oppressive with these people, will it actually stop these demonstrations?!?"

And that... is a tough one. My gut is telling me, is that it will not stop these demonstrations, but give the protestors more energy, compassion, and zeal for their cause.

He will be hounded and vilified by the West for dispatching these people "with extreme prejudice", and may well "lose face" with his colleagues both inside the Chinese government, and in other world capitals.

I absolutely would not want to be in his shoes right now.

The Twilight of Liberty: the State Destroys Alternative Media

It should be obvious by now what the plan is for Julian Assange—psychological torture resulting in either a total breakdown or an untimely death, the latter supported by the psychopaths who claim they are our leaders. This psychological torture was noted, with standard corporate media disinterest, by Nils Melzer, an internationally recognized expert on torture treatment.

“Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life,” Melzer, UN special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, said in a statement last week.

TO SERVE & PROTECT

Pious platitudes, soundbites, and warm fuzzy sayings have become political mainstays. What do they mean, and do they have any validity? Take the oft promoted saying on the sides of police cars; “To Serve And Protect”

As far as “serve”, what we’ve seen in recent years is police at charitable functions helping to hand out favors and food and/or taking toddlers with cancer on special rides in a police car. What does “protect” mean? The initial conclusion that any rational person would come to is that they can feel safe that there is a policeman just around the corner to come to their rescue in the nick of time.

Death by Oligarchy

Oligarchs are blinded by hubris, wealth and power. Their cloying sense of entitlement sees them outraged by even the most tepid reforms or mildest of criticisms. They lack empathy and compassion, along with remorse or guilt, for what is done to those outside of their tiny, elitist circles. Privilege does strange and unpleasant things to human beings. I saw these distortions among my rich classmates as a scholarship student at prep school and at Harvard University, an institution designed, like all elite schools, to perpetuate the plutocracy. Living in privilege spawns callousness, even cruelty, to those less fortunate and feeds a bottomless greed.

A 17-year-old girl from Manitoba, Canada, was suspended from her high school recently for objecting to wearing a “rainbow-colored” LGBTQP poppy broach, a personal decision that faculty and administrators at the school dubbed as “hate speech” before punishing her for it.

While the Interlake School Division refuses to either confirm or deny that this Stonewall Collegiate student, identified only as Natalie, was, in fact, suspended until after Remembrance Day, statements that she and her father made to the Post Millennial reveal that this is precisely what took place.

Global Proxy War Escalates: "Destabilizing Operation" Sends Bolivia Into Political Chaos

Authored by Michael Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Two days before Bolivian president Evo Morales was pushed out by the country’s military, Mark Weisbot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research penned a warning about what was happening, and what might unfold, in a Nation article titled, The Trump Administration Is Undercutting Democracy in Bolivia.

He noted:

Multilateral organizations like the Organization of American States (OAS) have a certain perceived impartiality because they are, in theory, controlled by a diverse group of nations. But sometimes a great power can wield a disproportionate influence. It could theoretically be a coincidence that both the Trump administration and the OAS have tried—without offering any evidence—to discredit Bolivia’s national election in the past couple of weeks. But it’s more likely that this dangerous, ugly, and destabilizing operation is being pushed by Washington.

IsraeGaza StripIsraeli airstrike kills Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza home

A pair of Israeli airstrikes targeted senior Islamic Jihad commanders in Gaza and Syria early Tuesday, escalating Israel’s confrontation with Iran across the region and threatening to unleash another devastating round of cross-border violence with Palestinian militants.

In eastern Gaza, the Israeli strike killed Bahaa Abu el-Atta and his wife, setting off a furious barrage of Gaza-fired rockets that reached as far as the Tel Aviv heartland as Islamic Jihad vowed further revenge. The military said Abu el-Atta was the mastermind of recent attacks against Israel and the militant group’s top commander in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Syrian officials said an Israeli airstrike in the capital, Damascus, targeted another Islamic Jihad commander, Akram al-Ajouri, who was not harmed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has become a regional master at provocation, assassinations, and is obviously readying for a complete, utter, and total war against Gaza.

I would like to strongly, but politely, caution Tel Aviv to be very, very careful about what it wishes for, as the outcome to such a conflict.

Forget reform: Saudi Arabia will now punish feminist women with 'flogging and prison sentences'

Saudi citizens found guilty of engaging in homosexuality and feminism could see themselves lashed or imprisoned in the ultraconservative kingdom, lawyers suggested.

The punitive measures could range from fines, to public lashing or even imprisonment, lawyer Nawaf al-Nabati said, according to al-Watan.

The remarks came just hours after Saudi Arabia listed feminism and homosexuality as extremist elements, on Friday, despite the kingdom’s ongoing drive to reform and relax its ultraconservative laws.
Saudi Arabia’s counter-extremism department announced the move on Twitter, where it warned its citizens and nationals to remain cautious against such groups.

"Extremism in all its forms is a societal scourge. It is important to remain cautious,” the statement said, before warning against hardliners who break away from religion to affirm their views.

Israeli forces kill another young Palestinian man ‘for no reason’ in Hebron refugee camp

Israeli forces shot and killed a young Palestinian man outside his home today in the al-Arroub refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Omar al-Badawi, reported to be 22-years-old, was shot in the abdomen near the front steps of his home in the camp during protests commemorating the death of revered Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

Eyewitness reports said that al-Badawi was exiting his home in an attempt to put out a small fire that had started nearby as a result of clashes between Israeli forces and local protesters.

A video, published by Quds News Network, shows al-Badawi slowly exiting an alleyway next to his home and waving a white towel — seemingly to indicate to soldiers that he meant no harm.

Israel Is Silencing the Last Voices Trying To Stop Abuses Against Palestinians

It has been a week of appalling abuses committed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank – little different from the other 2,670 weeks endured by Palestinians since the occupation began in 1967.

The difference this past week was that several entirely unexceptional human rights violations that had been caught on film went viral on social media.

One shows a Palestinian father in the West Bank city of Hebron leading his son by the hand to kindergarten. The pair are stopped by two heavily armed soldiers, there to help enforce the rule of a few hundred illegal Jewish settlers over the city’s Palestinian population.

The soldiers scream at the father, repeatedly and violently push him and then grab his throat as they accuse his small son of throwing stones. As the father tries to shield his son from the frightening confrontation, one soldier pulls out his rifle and sticks it in the father’s face.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Warns Iraq must also halt violence against protesters

Throughout weeks of recent anti-government protests in Iraq the US wasn’t immediately clear on their position. It was only following weekend reports of Iran trying to save the current government and forestall early elections that the US declared itself firmly on the side of early elections.

The White House demanded that the Iraqi government immediately fulfill talk of reforms and early elections by President Salih, further demanding an immediate halt on violence against Iraqi protesters.

These are somewhat uncharacteristic positions for the US to take on Iraq, as generally they, like Iran, prefer to prolong the survival of governments at any cost, and they’ve rarely presented anything like opposition to crackdowns on public protests before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the delicious smell of irony and hypocrisy in the morning!!

And it is only because Iran is desperately attempting to preserve the Iraqi government, that the US government is backing snap elections here.

US Ramping Up Firepower in Syria to Match Syria, Russia: US general says redeployment to east Syria required more power.

Maj. Gen. Eric Hill, addressing the arrival of more armored vehicles at the US positions in eastern Syria, says it is part of the “resetting” of the US position further east, and required the US to have more “combat power here to sustain ourselves.”

Maj. Gen. Hill says that the goal is not simply to have power to match ISIS but “the militaries of the Syrian regime, the Russians, or even militias backed by fellow NATO partner Turkey.” The focus is on how everyone is carving up territory in eastern Syria, which was once controlled by the US and its Kurdish allies.

Though the Pentagon likes to brag about its ability to project power across the world, in Syria its ability to accomplish anything has historically hinged on getting the Kurds to do it for them. Though the deployment at the oilfields is no doubt capable of inflicting some casualties if control of the fields is challenged, it’s hard to imagine that the US believes it would truly hold this ground with a few hundred troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The troop strength here will have to be much larger than the number given by the US Military for public consumption; I would suggest a couple of thousand troops, at least, perhaps more.

I only know one thing about this on coming "war against Syria; Russia; and Turkey"; it has to start quickly, because there is zero public sentiment to pursue it, so the US government will have to have it kicked off with some horrific false flag (most probably engineered by the US's frenemies in Tel Aviv), and away we go.....

Such a war will, be again, extra-Constitutional, as only Congress has the power to declare war under our Constitution; but that being said, there is so little regard for the rule of law in this country, I sincerely doubt that more than just a precious few of us will actually notice we are in yet another illegal war of aggression; as was the Iraq war; the war against Afghanistan; and the war against Libya.

I would hope and pray that those who believe such a war would be "a good thing" for this country, are very, very careful about the outcomes they wish to have happen here, and that they remember the following; in classic Greek dramas, those who acted hubristically, wound up very, very punished and generally ultimately, destroyed.

I suppose that by now everyone has heard of Trump’s offer to send the American military to “wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” which he asserts can be done “quickly and effectively.”

If AMLO were to invite the Americans into Mexico, he would be lynched. Few Americans are aware of how much the United States is hated in Latin America, and for that matter in most of the world. They don’t know of the long series of military interventions, brutal dictators imposed and supported, and economic rapine. Somoza, Pinochet, the Mexican-American War, detachment of Panama from Colombia, bombardment of Veracruz, Patton’s incursion – the list could go on for pages. The Mexican public would look upon American troops not as saviors but as invaders. Which they would be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, bull-headedly stupid thing for this government to do, is no guarantee that they will not do it.

What President Trump should actually accomplish here, is to encourage a re-write the drug laws in this country, and make them legal; this would completely throw the profit motive out the door for the cartels.

Of course, with so many other people are prospering so mightily by allowing drug laws in this country to stay just as they are right now, this will never happen.

This, of course, includes the banks which launder drug money; the politicians who may well get "contributions" from those "concerned that drug laws in this country stay precisely a they are"; and of course, we cannot forget the stockholders, investing in those private prisons, where the people who get caught using, can wind up.

WFP: Hundreds of Thousands of Haitians on the Verge of Famine

The World Food Program warns Haiti is approaching famine like conditions, with more than 1 in 3 people in the country of 11 million in need of urgent assistance.

A food assessment in October finds 1 million of the nearly 3.7 million people suffering severe food shortages in Haiti are facing an emergency and are on the brink of famine.

The World Food Program reports food insecurity in Haiti's rural areas has increased by 15% since the last analysis, in December. For the first time, the assessment shows 850,000 people in the capital Port-au-Prince are suffering severe hunger, with many not sure when they will eat again.

To compound this dramatic situation, WFP spokesman Herve Verhoosel said humanitarian agencies' efforts to reach people in need have been hampered by security problems during the past seven weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps the Haitian people have developed a profound dislike of both the austerity under which they are forced to live, and the horrific leadership which has been foisted upon them by the West.

The unending corruption of Haiti's President Jovonel Moises and his Administration

And what does the West want to expropriate from Haiti, if only Haiti's people could be "pacified"?!? Let's look the CIA's Index Mundi to find out;

the Natural Resources of Haiti the article goes on to state: "Natural resources: bauxite, copper, calcium carbonate, gold, marble, hydropower, arable land

Definition: This entry lists a country's mineral, petroleum, hydropower, and other resources of commercial importance, such as rare earth elements (REEs). In general, products appear only if they make a significant contribution to the economy, or are likely to do so in the future."

BINGO: Haiti has rare earth elements, or REES, which are critical to enable 21st century technology to exist. As explained in the following article:
Facts About Rare Earth Elements

But do not think, for one minute, that the Haitian people are going to get any reward financially, when these rare earth elements are harvested, most likely by a Western-centric company, and only sold in US dollars; its current government is to see to that. at least as long as it is able to stay in power.

JUDGE SAYS POLICE CAN SEARCH COMPANY'S ENTIRE DNA DATABASE

SOURCE: HUFFINGTONPOST.CA
A Florida detective successfully obtained a warrant to search the company GEDmatch’s full database of user-provided genetic information, even if users had opted out of appearing in police search results, HuffPost has confirmed.

The warrant, signed by a judge in Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit Court in July, will likely earn praise from law enforcement and criticism from privacy advocates wary of how DNA databases could be abused.

It appears to be the first warrant of its kind. Orlando Police Department Detective Michael Fields disclosed its existence during the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago last week, according to The New York Times.

Fields told the Times that the warrant has generated new leads but no arrests.

NYPD PROUDLY STAGES SEIZURE OF 106 POUNDS OF LEGAL HEMP

Even though the hemp had been tested and certified to contain less than the legal limit of THC and had been legally FedExed with the proper documentation by a licensed hemp grower to New York, the NTPD couldn’t resist the thought of a big drug bust to brag about, so they set up a trap and arrested the recipient.

After the arrest, the police officers set up an forced perspective photo that made the 106 pounds of innocuous plant material look like it was a major haul.

From the NYPD 75th Precinct FaceBook account: "Great job by Day Tour Sector E yesterday. Working with FedEx and other local law enforcement, they were able to confiscate 106 Lbs. of marijuana, and arrest the individual associated with the intended delivery."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Police departments who continue to do this, should be sued intensely, and the individual officers making these very lousy decisions, relative to US marijuana laws, should be fired immediately.

NATIONAL REAL ID CARDS CREATE ‘INTERNAL PASSPORTS’ THAT WILL ENABLE ORWELLIAN SURVEILLANCE STATE

The official deadline for states to comply with the REAL ID Act is Oct. 1, 2020. The legislation was passed in 2005, and implementation has been stalled for years due to state-level resistance. After playing the waiting game, the feds have settled on next year to enforce their unconstitutional legislative mandate.

Analyst Peter Earle of the American Institute for Economic Research explains that state-level efforts to resist REAL ID are futile, and all will be forced to comply due to federal aid being tied to implementing the onerous scheme. Earle believes these “internal passports” are another step toward the destruction of privacy rights by Big Brother.

SYRIA, OIL, AND THE EXCEPTIONAL, INDISPENSABLE KLEPTOCRATS

Instead of reducing the number of troops as promised, Trump approved an expanded “military mission,” supposedly to “secure” Syrian oil.

Trump Expands Military Mission in Syria Aiming to Control Oil Fields https://t.co/LcPtAiBmmc

— Democracy Now! (@democracynow) November 8, 2019

The Donald is completely irrelevant.

“At a US government-funded think tank at the forefront of shaping Washington’s interventionist designs, an American official succinctly laid out the continued-regime change strategy,” writes Ben Norton for The Grayzone.

The “think tank”—the neocon infested Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is funded by clueless American taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what kind of bets the bookies in Vegas are taking on some kind of "false flag" (most probably engineered by our Israeli Frenemies in Tel Aviv) against American troops on the ground in Syria, or against Russian troops on the ground here, but I have a feeling that such an event may well happen soon, and it will be horrifically nasty.

One of the most iconic holidays for Americans, is our upcoming Thanksgiving; one has to wonder if this is the weekend planned for such an event, to be thoroughly screamed about throughout Thanksgiving Day, and well washed in the 24/7 news spin cycle by the time the following Monday rolls around.

Overnight polls should start, right after the beginning of the event, to see how many people in the US see it as a "justification" for a war against Syria, and off we go.

There is, however, one slight complication to this scenario; that is the Russian military presence in Syria, and just how far its President Putin is willing to go, to scotch such a move.

Should a shooting war start between the US and Syrian military, I seriously doubt that Putin is going to lead the Russian Parliament in a stirring rendition of "Kumbyah", where everyone holds hands, and sways to the music.

As much as Russia's Putin may not want to do it, he may feel that his hand has been forced, and he has to act against the US theft of Syrian oil, and its invasion of a sovereign state, where it has absolutely not been invited.

The Russian military response here may well be.... intense.

MSM ADAMANTLY AVOIDS THE WORD “COUP” IN BOLIVIA REPORTING

There has been a military coup in Bolivia backed by violent right-wing rioters and the US government, but you’d hardly know this from any of the mainstream media headlines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the most recent development here, Morales has accepted Mexico's offer of asylum.

Evo Morales leaves Bolivio to take Asylum in Mexico

Folks, the pattern is painfully obvious here; the US government destabilizes an existing government, in a country with resources the US wants and needs, but for the cheapest prices possible; creates a US-centric government; bringa in US-centric corporations to expropriate those resources to which this country has no moral right; and insures that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Sadly, for this administration and quite awhile before President Trump took office, the "Holy Trinity" of geopolitics for the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika has become destabilization; war and war crimes; and the theft of resources.

I used to think that this country's government was better than this; unfortunately it is not.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG AND THE “GOOD CLUB”: LEFTIST POLITICS MIRROR MALTHUSIAN POPULATION REDUCTION PLAN

SOURCE: DANIEL TAYLOR, OLD THINKER
THE GLOBALIST PLAN FOR AMERICA AND THE WORLD IS NOTHING MORE THAN A DEATH SENTENCE.
Former Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has made moves for a possible 2020 Presidential campaign.

Bloomberg has deep ties to the true rulers of the planet, and may play a critical role in the rise of Hillary Clinton in 2020.

He has attended at least 2 secret meetings reported by mainstream media related to an insidious plan to reduce the world’s population. Both meetings were organized by the Gates Foundation.

2009 – New York

In 2009, Bloomberg – along with George Soros, David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Warren Buffett and others – attended a secret meeting in New York at the home of Paul Nurse, who was President of the Rockefeller Foundation at the time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They certainly have the tools to do this right now; don't know about you, but these folks cause the hair on the back of my neck to breakdance (a VERY unusual circumstance, if one is 70 or older, but I digress!) As examples of this, one can cite:

VATICAN CLAIMES THAT UNICEF AND WHO ARE STERILIZING YOUNG GIRLS THROUGH VACCINES

This article goes on to state: "The charges in Kenya, similar to others in Mexico, Nicaragua and the Philippines, led Kenya’s parliamentary Committee of Health to create a Joint Committee of Experts, made of experts from Kenya’s Ministry of Health and the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops, to investigate the conflicting claims, which included government assurances that the tetanus vaccines used in the WHO-UNICEF Vaccination Campaign had been tested and found free of HCG.

The Ministry of Health then refused to provide the Expert Committee with the vaccine vials it claimed to have sampled and tested. The Catholic Bishops did provide the expert committee with nine sample vials that had been used in the WHO-UNICEF campaign. Upon testing, the Expert Committee found that one third of the WHO-UNICEF vials did indeed contain HCG. Separately, 50 tetanus vials that weren’t involved in the WHO-UNICEF campaign were tested and found to be free of HCG."

We now understand that the DTAP vaccine, which is mandatory for US kids now, can cause autism:

FDA Announces That DTap Vaccine Can Cause Autism

So let's inject kids around the world with this vaccine, and see what happens, right, Mr. Bloomberg?!?

And last but not least interesting development here, is the existence of the Federal Vaccine Court, Vaccine Court Pays Billions

If all vaccines were actually as safe as we have been told they are, why has this court, as of December, 2018, shelled out $ 4 billion dollars for the care of vaccine injured kids?!? This article goes on to state: "A chickenpox outbreak at a private school in North Carolina drew extensive national news coverage in November. The thrust of most stories was the public health threat of unvaccinated children and superstitious beliefs about vaccine risks.

But there was little fanfare when, about the same time, an obscure federal program that compensates victims of vaccine injuries passed a milestone. Payouts by the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP, have now topped $4 billion."

And the "jewel in the crown", in terms of population control, is corn which is modified with the epicyte gene:
GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

The above makes the process sound actually like a planet saving response to overpopulation, until you read the fine print here;

"Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.

'We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies,' said Epicyte president Mitch Hein.

'We have also created corn plants that make antibodies against the herpes virus, so we should be able to make a plant-based jelly that not only prevents pregnancy but also blocks the spread of sexual disease.'

Contraceptive corn is based on research on the rare condition, immune infertility, in which a woman makes antibodies that attack sperm.

'Essentially, the antibodies are attracted to surface receptors on the sperm,' said Hein. 'They latch on and make each sperm so heavy it cannot move forward. It just shakes about as if it was doing the lambada."

One has to wonder just how this "good club" intends to see how all of the above tools are utilized in a human population reduction scheme, which, I am relatively sure, will include massive, endless wars "eliminating the "useless eaters" the world 'round.

BRITISH MI6 AGENT AND FOUNDER OF THE WHITE HELMETS GROUP DIES AFTER "FALLING OFF BALCONY" IN TURKEY

SOURCE: THE GUARDIAN
The British founder of the organisation that trained the Syrian rescue group known as the White Helmets has died in Istanbul.

A spokesman for the White Helmets confirmed on Monday afternoon the death of James Le Mesurier, but said further details were yet to be established.

Le Mesurier, 48, was found dead near his apartment in central Istanbul’s Beyo?lu neighbourhood at around 4.30am. Turkish media reports said he was found with fractures to his head and legs near the building on Monday morning and appeared to have fallen from the balcony of one of the apartments.

The office of Istanbul’s governor said it had commenced a “comprehensive” investigation into the death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Turkish media reports said he was found with fractures to his head and legs near the building on Monday morning and appeared to have fallen from the balcony of one of the apartments."

FALLEN, MY ASTROLABE!! Looks like there may well be another round of "wetwork" to "tie up loose intel ends" going on,, and Le Mesurier simply is the first case we know about.

The REAL inconvenient truth: Polar bears thriving in spite of climate change, but saying this gets scientists fired

Zoologist and polar bear expert Susan Crockford was shunned by the academy for her insistence that despite the polar bear’s status as a climate change icon, the warming planet had actually caused the species to thrive. She did not deny climate change – merely the idea that it was harming the bears.

After losing her contract as an adjunct professor at Canada’s University of Victoria, where she worked for 15 years, she has been vindicated by a report from northern Canada confirming her theory that polar bears are climate change’s beneficiaries, rather than its victims.

Footage of an emaciated polar bear, captioned “this is what climate change looks like,” yanked at the world’s heartstrings when it was posted on National Geographic in 2017. Eight months later, the publication changed the caption to “this is what starvation looks like,” admitting there was no way to tell why the bear was starving.

YouTube now banning doctors for daring to question transgenderism… Trannies the new “untouchables” who can never be questioned

“See, if you want to cut off a leg or an arm, you’re mentally ill, but if you want to cut off healthy breasts or a penis, you’re transgender.”

Those are the words of Dr. Michelle Cretella, a pediatrician with many years’ experience and the executive director of the American Academy of Pediatricians, in a Daily Signal video published in 2017.

It’s a sentence YouTube will not allow the doctor to say about children and gender identity issues.

Talk about rational; Cretella is spot-on. But no; the Left-wing speech Nazis at YouTube will not allow anyone to question the wisdom of self-mutilation over what really only amounts to gender confusion.

US Staged Coup d’Etat in Bolivia

by Stephen Lendman

The late William Blum documented CIA coups since WW II.

They’re staged to advance Washington’s aim for unchallenged global dominance. It’s not a pretty picture.

Variations of the same script are used to topple foreign leaders not subservient enough to US interests.

CIA dirty hands orchestrate things — the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, and other US agencies also involved.

Foreign right-wing politicians and military officials are bought like toothpaste to go along with diabolical plots to topple sovereign independent governments, US dark forces wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing them.

Blum explained how the plot works, saying “on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition,” adding:

The Armistice We Need: Time for Vets To Reclaim Veterans’ Day

In the 101 years since the Armistice took effect, on the eleventh minute, of the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918, the US military has been at war somewhere – even by conservative measures – all but eleven of those years. That pesky number eleven, how it haunts us still. Most Americans may find that statistic shocking, or, in some cases, might simply reject it. And why not? Much of the citizenry learned the nation’s history, taught (at increasingly paltry levels) in public schools. Too often they’re trained to reflexively view the US as a once flawed, but ultimately great – exceptional, even – country. Those pugnacious stats can’t be accurate, many assume, because after all, America isn’t an empire, isn’t a warlike nation. Even in this so-called modern age, such thinking is shockingly pervasive.

War is a Racket by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler

War is a Racket is a book by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler, the most decorated Marine in history, denouncing the military industrial complex. This reenactment video is a compilation of some of his speeches. The two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit the few at the expense of many. Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree. To Hell with war.

And the Armies That Remained Suffer’d: Veterans, Moral Injury and Suicide

by Matthew Hoh

In a 2015 New York Times story a Marine Corps infantry unit that was tracked after coming home from war saw suicide rates among its young men 4 times greater than other young male veterans and 14 times that of civilians. This increased risk of suicide for veterans who served during war holds true for all generations of veterans, including the Greatest Generation. A study in 2010 by The Bay Citizen and New America Media, as reported by Aaron Glantz, found the current suicide rate for WWII veterans to be 4 times higher than for their civilian peers, while VA data, released since 2015, show rates for WWII veterans well elevated above their civilian peers. A 2012 VA study found that Vietnam veterans with killing experiences had twice the odds of suicidal ideation than those with lower or no killing experiences, even after adjusting for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse and depression.

How The Deep State "Justifies" Itself In America

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On October 30th, there was a panel discussion broadcast live on C-Span from the National Press Club and the Michael V. Hayden Center. The discussants were John Brennan, Michael McCabe, John McGlaughlin, and Michael Morrell. They all agreed with the statement by McLaughlin (former Deputy CIA Director) “Thank God for the ‘Deep State’”, and the large audience there also applauded it — nobody booed it.

Former CIA director John McLaughlin on Trump’s impeachment: “Thank God for the deep state”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I have a news flash about these people; for them, it is only a question of whose ox gets gored (in this case, President Trump's); being able to "count coup" on the evils they continue to perpetrate and support (like the US's continued support for the Sultan of Bahrain, who consistently tortures his own citizens, whose only "crime" has been peaceful demonstrations for a constitutional monarchy, because the Navy's 5th Fleet is stationed there); and who gets the money at the end of the day.

One has to wonder just what percentage of their income, comes from the military industrial complex.

Very bluntly put, these are vile sociopaths of the highest order, who are not quite "in the biz of governance", who expect to gain brilliantly financially, by promoting these destabilizations and endless wars, through their work as presstitutes and warmongers.

I wish everyone who "signed on" for this kind of work was required to put all their assets into a blind trust before they accepted their positions in the (alleged) US media, but understand that this will only happen...when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Honor veterans? Then demand arrests of .01% US War Criminals lying our military into OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression that kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions

Current and ongoing US military armed attacks on several nations are the opposite of lawful, and all started with lies known to be false as they are told.

This essay explains, documents and proves illegal and lie-started Wars of Aggression that active US military are trained to refuse engagement because there are no lawful orders for illegal Wars of Aggression.
The costs of these War Crimes include millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted.

US military veterans “served” these illegal attacks by .01% lying sacks-of-spin political and media “leaders.” Obviously, the responsible citizen will demand .01% arrests for War Crimes.

This essay’s central facts was published by The Claremont Colleges after a 2015 international conference for ~2,000 people, and I continue to reframe its contents until the wars are ended.

"Too Many To Count": The Global Persecution Of Christians

Authored by Raymond Ibrahim via The Gatestone Institute,

Today is one of the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). Initiated over 20 years ago by the World Evangelical Alliance, 100,000 congregations around the world and millions of Christians participate on this day.

"This November let us unite in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters," IDOP noted in a brief video that highlights a few examples of recent persecution, including the Easter Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka and the ongoing slaughter of Christians by Islamic groups in Nigeria and, increasingly, Burkina Faso.

Statistics bear out this grim assertion: "4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons," noted Open Doors in its World Watch List 2019. "On average, that's 11 Christians killed every day for their faith." Additionally, "2,625 Christians were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned" and "1,266 churches or Christian buildings were attacked."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew that the numbers here were grim, but I did not realize that they were this grim.

But looking at these numbers, we cannot forget that Christians clobbering other Christians, for differences in orthodoxy, has happened during this religion's history as well; I am very relieved that, for the most part, Christians have grown up, and this has stopped, and Christians now have a good track record of working with other denominations of Christians toward common goals of "lifting people up, who have fallen by the wayside."

One of the most wonderful opportunities for giving time, and energy, on Oahu, was for a food distribution program, headed up by a wonderful Dominican Nun, and co-sponsored by an equally wonderful person from my Methodist congregation in Aiea.

No one, that I can remember, ever said a nasty word, or put in a dig, to either the Catholics or Protestants who volunteered to help families judged by the State of Hawaii as Food-Insecure. We simply and collectively, had "our eyes on the prize" of making sure that people not only ate a nice meal, when they came, but also had bags of food to take home, with which to feed their families.

New York Rep. Peter King Becomes 20th House Republican To Announce Retirement Plans

Long Island's Peter King has become the 20th House Republican to announce that he will not seek reelection in 2020.

California fires are Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) attacks: abundant photographic/video evidence explained by retired fire captain and fire fighter

Retired Fire Department Captain John Lord and a fellow retired fire fighter (unwilling to state his full name) have over 60 years’ experience as professionals working with fires. Both explain that recent California fires are the only ones they’ve ever witnessed or ever heard of with these characteristics:

1. Great number of fires starting at the same time.
2. Temperatures two to three times normal.
3. Homes obliterated but leaving surrounding trees and plastic untouched (garbage/recycle cans, plastic lattice, outdoor dog domes).
4. Trees burned at the base only and from the inside out.
5. Evidence of resistance heating with fires started from Smart Meters and metal similar to microwave energy.

Reasons Marijuana Legalization Seems To Be Failing

When it was first proposed, the concept of marijuana legalization seemed solid enough. Take the world’s most popular illicit substance, establish a taxed and regulated marketplace and watch all of the evil associated with the herb – the criminal activity, the youth consumption –fade away into a footnote of American history. And by all accounts, it was a plan that should have worked. After all, we weren’t dealing with a new idea or anything.

Thanks to the LGBT mafia, you can now lose your job for saying that only women can give birth

The former spokeswoman for Doula UK, a birthing group based out of Great Britain, was canned from her position recently after she dared to post biological facts to her social media accounts.

Lynsey McCarthy-Calvert, 45, has been working with pregnant women for many years, having represented the national organization for birthing coaches in her country. She’s also worked as a doula herself for six years, assisting pregnant women in making their birthing experiences as painless as possible.

But McCarthy-Calvert also believes that men with penises can’t give birth to children like women with vaginas can, a position that’s a major no-no in today’s LGBTQP-controlled world. And simply for admitting to these beliefs on social media, McCarthy-Calvert has now been let go from her job, if you can believe it.

THOUGHT POLICE: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter all ban any mention of “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella as the Overton Window of allowable speech collapses

In order to achieve this Orwellian goal of complete secrecy and obfuscation of the facts, the tech giants are now aggressively de-platforming any channel that mentions the name “Ciaramella” in text, images or videos. This action is predicated on the coordinated liberal lie that falsely claims naming whistleblowers is somehow against the law.

It turns out it isn’t. That’s why the left-wing media itself routinely names whistleblowers if doing so is calculated to be able to harm President Trump, Kavanaugh or other prominent conservatives. (Remember the Christine Blasey Ford circus against Kavanaugh? Ford’s name wasn’t blacklisted from the internet…)

Israel’s Supreme Court — Upholding “Targeted Assassinations” and Torture

Time and again, Israel’s high court upholds human and civil rights abuses committed by the state.

In 2006, the court upheld its targeted assassinations policy, claiming they’re OK when no other choices exist to protect against dangers to national security — that don’t exist it failed to say.

The policy contravenes Israeli law, the laws of war, and human rights law. Time and again, Israel falsely calls legitimate self-defense by Palestinians “terrorism,” unjustifiably justifying its lawless actions, most often upheld by its high court.

In Public Committee against Torture in Israel et al v. the Government of Israel et al (1999), Israel’s Supreme Court banned the practice it earlier OK’d, ruling “psychological pressure (and) a moderate degree of physical pressure” are permissible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in World War II, there was a German interrogator by the name of Hanns Scharff. Bio: Hanns Scharff

Scharff never once resorted to violence, but in an absolutely perfect English, would persuade the men he questioned, that he already knew who they were, and what they did, and frequently took them on day passes for cultural events.

The most interesting thing here, is that he managed to get precisely the information he wanted in this way.

After the war, this man was so respected by the American military that they invited him to teach his methods to the American military; (yes, the guy was that good!).

Unfortunately, those lessons learned from Scharff's techniques have been absolutely abandoned by both the US and Israeli military.

There are some very emotionally sick individuals who get off on causing extreme pain, perhaps maiming the tortured for life, and these are generally the people who wind up doing it, not because it gives them actionable information, but because they like to really hurt other people.

53 Million Americans Drowning In Cycle Of Low-Wage Work 

For instance, a new report sheds light on 53 million Americans, or about 44% of all US workers, aged 18 to 64, are considered low-wage and low-skilled.

Many of these folks are stuck in the gig economy, making approximately $10.22 per hour, and they bring home less than $20,000 per year, according to a Brookings Institution report.

An overwhelmingly large percentage of these folks have insurmountable debts if that are student loans, auto loans, and or credit card debt. Their wages don't cover their debt servicing payments as their lives will be left in financial ruin after the next recession.

While the top 10% of Americans are partying like it's 1999, most of whom own assets, like stocks, bonds, and real estate, are greatly prospering off the Federal Reserve's serial asset bubble-blowing scheme and President Trump's stock market pumping on Twitter.

Today's artificial economy isn't working for everyone as the wealth inequality gap swells to crisis levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And while President Trump keeps chanting his "mantra" about the economy being "great", it is, unfortunately, only "great for the already monied.

There are many moments when President Trump appears to be absolutely, totally tone-deaf to the real needs and concerns of ordinary working people who have, through absolutely no fault of their own, found that their decent-paying job, enabling them to enjoy a middle class lifestyle, has been offshored/outsourced by corporations which relocate internationally, and pay pennies on the dollar for that country's labor.

Only Donald Trump Can Save American Democracy and Only with Our Support

It is a Constitutional Republic PCR! Otherwise a great article.

Now that the “quid pro quo gate” hoax has collapsed, like the Russiagate hoax, the presstitutes are inventing a new quid pro quo hoax. It wasn’t money that Trump dangled before the Ukrainian president in exchange for an investigation of Ukraine’s contribution to the Russiagate hoax. It was a presidential visit to Ukraine. I listened to the latest CIA-directed presstitute plot unfold today on NPR. Three semi-males devoid of integrity did their best to substitute a visit to Ukraine by Trump for the unsubstantiated promise of money. The visit is all third hand as there is no mention of such a visit in the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky. The impeachment hoax now rests on unverifiable alleged conversations between Trump aides and Zelensky aides that Trump will honor Ukraine with a visit if Ukraine reopens the investigation.

Romanian-Born Ivy League Professor Warns: Anti-White Mindset Infecting USA “on Its Way Toward Full Blown Communism"

Serban says in the interview that after a faculty member retired, the remaining professors in the department were called in to a meeting to discuss a replacement.

It was at this meeting that the dean of the art school told them that there were “too many white professors, too many heterosexual men,” and that it would be best to hire a minority or a woman, or a gay man.

Serban, who was the director of the hiring committee, says that he was told that it could not be someone like him because he is a man that has been “married, a heterosexual man who has children.”

NYT Says We Need Refugees to Fill ‘Void of Cultural Diversity’ in Towns That Are Too White

The New York Times needs some diversity on their staff. Too Kosher!

Even though White children are a minority in the US school system and most major cities have been ethnically cleansed of a White majority, there are still some towns that are not diverse enough for our jewish supremacist overlords. The New York Times has argued that refugees need to be resettled across rural America, into areas that are a “void of cultural diversity” (too White).

Global Debt Tops $188,000,000,000,000 – Officially The Biggest Debt Bubble The World Has Ever Seen

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

The world is now 188 trillion dollars in debt, and that number continues to grow rapidly each year.

It is a form of enslavement that is deeply insidious, because most of those living on the planet do not even understand how the system works, and even if they did most of them would have absolutely no hope of ever getting free from it. The borrower is the servant of the lender, and the global financial system is designed to funnel as much wealth to the top 0.1% as possible. Of course throughout human history there has always been slavery, and the primary motivation for having slaves is to extract an economic benefit from those that are enslaved. And even though most of us don’t like to think of ourselves as “slaves” today, the truth is that the global elite are extracting more wealth from all of us than ever before. So much of our labor is going to make them wealthy, and yet most people don’t even realize what is happening.

"Clients With Guns" Are Demanding Deposits From Crisis-Stricken Lebanese Banks

Here we go as predicted: the Lebanese central bank attempts to prevent a "panic mode" scramble on the part of the public to remove all deposits, and the recently imposed (unofficial) regulations geared toward staving off capital flight are predictably failing fast, per Reuters:

“Clients with guns have entered banks and security guards have been afraid to speak to them as when people are in a state like this you don’t know how people will act.”

Lebanon's private banks reopened a week ago on Friday following a two-week closure due to massive anti-government protests which created gridlock across the country's main cities, including closure of other public institutions such as schools.

The World Bank weighed in on Friday, urging leaders in Beirut to form new Cabinet within a week, citing risks to Lebanon's stability as "deeply concerning," according to the AP.

Hong Kong Student Dies From Injuries In First Fatality Linked To Protests

In what appears to be the first death of a protester stemming from the aggressive police tactics, a young student has died after sustaining a serious head injury during a fall from the third floor of a car park to the second while police carried out an aggressive dispersion operation to end a protest

According to the SCMP, Chow Tsz-lok, a second year computer science undergraduate student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology fell from the car park in Tseung Kwan O as police fired off rounds of tear gas on Monday.

California's Housing Nightmare Is Only Getting Worse

When historians look back on contemporary California, one thing they'll be bound to make note of is that the state's developers bet on the wrong model.

Endless, suburban sprawl is coming back to haunt California in ways both major and minor. In densely populated communities across the state, traffic is horrible thanks to underdeveloped public transportation (this is especially true in LA). Most residents have accepted that deadly, devastating wildfires are just part of the deal now - bound to recur endlessly until the state's population shrinks to the point that it no longer intermingles with the state's vast swaths of woodland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although Mike and I met and married in Southern California, we have absolutely no desire to live there anymore.

America's Endless Wars: "At West Point, Graduation Day Felt More Like A Tragedy Than A Triumph"

Authored by US Army Major Danny Sjursen (ret.) via TheNation.com,

Patches, pins, medals, and badges are the visible signs of an exclusive military culture, a silent language by which soldiers and officers judge each other’s experiences, accomplishments, and general worth. In July 2001, when I first walked through the gate of the US Military Academy at West Point at the ripe young age of 17, the “combat patch” on one’s right shoulder - evidence of a deployment with a specific unit - had more resonance than colorful medals like Ranger badges reflecting specific skills. Back then, before the 9/11 attacks ushered in a series of revenge wars “on terror,” the vast majority of officers stationed at West Point didn’t boast a right shoulder patch. Those who did were mostly veterans of modest combat in the first Gulf War of 1990–91. Nonetheless, even those officers were regarded by the likes of me as gods. After all, they’d seen “the elephant.”

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.

"We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in the debate," Facebook said in a statement in which they claim it violates their "coordinating harm" policy which prohibits content 'outing of witness, informant, or activist.'

On Wednesday, the social media giant removed ads naming Ciaramella which had been viewed several hundred thousand times according to the Washington Post.

On Friday, Breitbart's Allum Bohkari reported that the news outlet's posts containing references to Ciaramella had been scrubbed from the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frankly, this is precisely what we can expect henceforward from the Zuk, the Malnificent's "Facebook"; since the 4th estate in this country has been defined as "journalism, or what passes for it in this country today", the 5th estate has become that of both the cybersurveillence, and cyber-scrubbing ordered by the US Deep State; folks, it is just that simple.

Zuk the Malnificent, through Facebook, is simply a tool of the US Deep State; nothing more and nothing less.

Thirst for Justice: America’s Struggle for Clean Water: Pollution, poisoning and the loss of human life due to unsafe water are the accepted costs of doing business in America.

Somehow I’d ended up on a plastic mattress in a tiny prison cell wearing the infamous orange jump suit. I’d been arrested once before in Egypt during the revolution as a journalist, but now I was in Wisconsin, America, where freedom of speech is enshrined in the constitution. I’d considered myself safe there.

I had been arrested whilst filming a small, peaceful protest by mainly Indigenous Ojibwe people against the construction of a new oil pipeline. I was working on a documentary film on America’s struggle for clean water.

Controversial pipelines

Enbridge’s Line 3 will carry 760,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from Canada, across the American border to a refinery on Lake Superior, Wisconsin. Almost as much oil as the controversial Keystone XL.

The Vaccine Deep State. Impacts of Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines

The media refuses to accept that those who have been vaccine damaged, or who have children who will suffer for the remainder of their lives from adverse vaccine events, have a legitimate right to speak their truth rather than being labeled as hysterical or crazy. All of these individuals and parents were pro-vaccine until they or their child became vaccine-injured. Similarly we saw the New York Times manufacturing consent for accepting falsehoods that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. And this was true across the mainstream outlets including the Washington Post, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others. The Times fabricated that rationale to the public on behalf of the neocons in the Bush administration who were determined to have a war. None of the journalists publishing these lies have taken responsibility nor lost a night’s sleep because their fakery led to the death of millions.

Substandard Education in America

The quality of American education, as we will see, is far lower than the world has been led to believe, and the quality in China is in many cases much superior to that in the US. Americans might care to ask why it is that Chinese elementary or high school students moving to the US are often promoted by one or two grades. The reason is that they know so much more than their American counterparts they would suffer terminal boredom if forced to remain at their prior grade level. If we refer to the PISA tests, Shanghai’s math scores were 119 above the OECD average, or the equivalent of nearly three years of schooling, with reading and science exceeding the OECD average by about 1.5 years of schooling. And in some cases, the American students were behind the OECD average by approximately the same number of years as the Chinese were ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this cannot be seen in any possible light but that of a deliberate push by the US government to keep its people illiterate; innumerate; and incapable of critical thinking.

This move (and under Israeli law, as the leader of a caretaker government, can Netanyahu actually do this?!?) does not augur well at all for peace with the Palestinians, which is precisely why Netanyahu made this choice.

Father of Julian Assange Fears His Son Will Die in Prison: UN Rapporteur on Torture Warned Assange May Lose his Life

John Shipton, the father of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told reporters on Friday that he needs to “face the bitter truth” that his son “may die in jail.” Shipton spoke with reporters in Geneva two days after he visited Assange in Belmarsh prison in London.

“This is not the bitter disappointment of a father, this is simply fact,” Shipton said. “Julian may die in jail over a nine-year persecution for revealing the truth of war crimes. It is beyond obscene.”

Shipton’s comments come a week after UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer said, “Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life.” Melzer has previously warned that Assange had been subject to psychological torture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I believe that Assange's dad is absolutely, horrifically correct.

Assange's info has never been hit as falsification; he has simply been a "thorn in the side" of the US government, and I cannot for a moment doubt, that he has been the victim of both physical and psychological torture, while held at Belmarsh.

IF he does make it into an American prison (which I sincerely doubt will happen), he will, most likely, be too ill to speak in his own defense, and wind up dead of some weaponized disease, one of the effects of which is hallucinatory behaviour and thoughts, which will become part and parcel of how his "legacy" will be screwed by the US/British intelligence agencies in years to come, for telling the truth.

More Iraqi Protesters Killed, Sistani Says Time for Govt to Meet DemandsSistani aide: No longer can government procrastinate

Iraqi security forces continued to crack down on protests Friday, with security forces killing at least 10 people in Basra, where the protesters have been keeping the country’s main Gulf port closed for days.

Live gunfire and killing protesters hasn’t worked in the past, nor is there any sign it’s going to work here. The biggest issue is likely to be Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani’s sermon, which is now saying the government must immediately meet demands of protesters.

The top religious leader in Iraq, Sistani has long warned against using force against the protesters, and now says it is time to just meet the demands of the protesters immediately. His aide Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalaie, added that their position is that the Iraqi government can not “procrastinate on this issue because of the great risks facing the country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To Iraq's Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, I have three words for you, and they are BLESS YOU SIR!!

Speaking out against corruption in government is not an easy task (and trust me, sir, as an American, I do know just a tiny bit about this); I understand that this took a lot of moral courage on your part, but you absolutely did the right thing here.

Because if policy makers in Baghdad do not listen to you, we may well be looking at a bloody revolution in Iraq, with a government permanently aligned with other than American interests, and that influence would most likely coming from...Iran.

Unfortunately, the Iranian-born Shiite Cleric, Muktada Al Sadr, whose party created a significant coalition in the last Parliamentary elections, is now seen as part of the problem, because his influence really did nothing to create a cure for Iraq's corruption, even though he has railed against it frequently.

Pentagon’s East Syria Operation About More Than Taking the Oil

Whether to control the oil or flat out take the oil, US statements on the new military mission in Syria are heavily oil-themed. Other reports, however, suggest that the operation is a lot more complicated than that.

In reality, a lot of the goal is nation-building, with US forces meant to both keep the Syrian government out of this part of Syria, and try to “bring prosperity” to the region, propping up a potential territory of rebels.

This is again built around the assumption that the US can manufacture an autonomous, prosperous region, using the oilfields as the revenue source, and then steer that region toward hostility with the rest of Syria.

This will likely end up being a plan easier for the Trump Administration to sell than overt theft of oil, as it allows the US to retain its primary focus, military hostility toward Syria with an eye toward eventual regime change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) to those in the Pentagon who actually believe that this is a reasonable, logical way of moving forward in Syria; I really don't know if you need a hug, some calcium magnesium; some milk and a happy-ending bedtime story, or at least one American, a Christian pacifist activist, who never encourages violence (folks, that's me) to gently suggest to you that such an approach is completely, as in barking-dog mad, rubber-room-esque insane.

What homogeneous group are you going to give this region to, now that the Kurds have pledged fealty to the Syrian government?!?

The Kurds’ commander in chief explains why his forces are finally ready to partner with Assad and Putin.

My big question is, how long Russia's Putin will be willing to put up with this foolishness before Russian (plus Kurdish plus Syrian) troops uncork on US positions in Syria?!?

And folks, for me, that is the ultimate nightmare scenario. The two headlines right under this at antiwar.com, give me no comfort on this issue either.

Pentagon Claims US Authority to Shoot Any Syrian Govt Official Who Tries to Take Control of Syrian Oil and the headline under this, Erdogan: Turkey Won’t Leave Syria Until Every Other Country Does: Says Turkey will not let up on offensive against Kurdish militants

Does the US position here even remotely resemble a reasonable, sane, responsible,and moral moment of conflict resolution?!?

The short answer, of course, is: HELL, NO!!!

PIERS MORGAN: In one brutally ballsy talk-show appearance, Donald Trump Jr. gave us a stunning View of barefaced lying liberal celebrity hypocrisy - and it wasn't a pretty sight

Even before Donald Trump Jr. appeared on The View yesterday, liberal celebrities were howling their fury.

Will and Grace actress Debra Messing, who hasn't stopped hysterically raging about all things Trump for the past four years, was incensed the President's son was even allowed to go on at all.

'Why would you bring him on?' she tweeted the ABC show's Twitter account. 'You trying to be 'balanced'?'

You could almost feel the bile laced all over her lips as she spat out the dreaded b-word.

Messing is an expert in disappointing and irresponsible decisions.

A few weeks ago, she demanded the Hollywood Reporter publish the names of everyone attending a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Her Will and Grace co-star Eric McCormack revealed the sinister motive behind this demand: 'Kindly report on everyone attending this event, so the rest of us can be clear about who we don't wanna work with. Thx.'

God bless Whoopi Goldberg for "having had the sand" to remind people about the
McCarthy era, and what this kind of legacies these kinds of witch hunts can create.

Las Vegas becomes first major city to make it a crime to sleep or camp out on the streets as it moves to tackle the homeless crisis blighting cities across America

Las Vegas officials passed a law on Wednesday the first in the US that will make it illegal for homeless people to sleep on streets when beds are available at established shelters.

The measure will apply to the city's downtown urban core, not the tourist-heavy Las Vegas Strip, which is overseen by a different jurisdiction.

Las Vegas becomes the latest city in the US West - from San Francisco and Seattle to Honolulu and Salt Lake City - to try to deal with complaints about homelessness.

The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a similar law from Boise, Idaho, last year - calling it unconstitutional to prosecute people for sleeping in public places when there aren't enough shelter beds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just going to make the homeless crisis in Vegas worse, not better.

What happens where there are no beds at community shelters, and what happens to those who have no housing whatsoever?!?!?

Families Of Cartel-Assault Victims Insist Deadly Attack "Was No Accident"

Contrary to our expectations, the slaying of nine members of a Mormon community living in Northern Mexico at the hands of Mexican cartel gunmen seems to have already dropped out of the news cycle, perhaps because it's already become clear that neither the US nor Mexico is planning to hold the attackers accountable.

Senior Mexican security officials who are obviously worried about more bad press insist that the attack was a case of mistaken identity. But keep in mind, these are the same people who initially told the world that federal police just happened to stumble upon the son of El Chapo in Culiacan (denying that his arrest had been the target of an organized operation).

Security Minister Alfonso Durazo, whose name has been in the press frequently in the aftermath of the attack, said earlier this week that the gunmen may have attacked the women because they suspected they were members of a rival gang during a period of intense turf wars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for all who were killed, wounded, and all family/friends affected by this horrific attack; but I have to wonder; did the Cartel ordering the hit think that this Mormon family saw or heard something which justified their assassinations?

And with babies on board?!?

Were I part of a "Mormon dissident family", I would be thinking about leaving Mexico, and just as soon as was humanly possible.

Momentum stalls in Congress for aid to ailing national parks

Our country is headed for 3rd world status. Mainly because of all the money the Defense Department and their Israeli masters suck out of our economy for their incessant wars.

DENVER, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Momentum in Congress has sputtered for bills that would help the U.S. National Park Service finance a $12 billion backlog in maintenance needs.

Even though it has wide bipartisan support, the Restore Our Parks legislation that would send $6.5 billion over five years to improve park infrastructure is lingering in legislative limbo. The money would come from offshore and onshore royalty revenues for oil and gas on public lands.

"This legislation represents one of the most significant investments in the 100-year history of the Park Service," co-lead author Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said in an email. "The longer we kick the can on the deferred maintenance backlog, the more we'll hold back communities that rely on visitors to help generate economic activity."

Pentagon: Revenue From Syrian Oil Will Go to Kurdish SDF, Not US

Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman told reporters on Thursday that while the US continues to expand its presence in and around east Syria with an aim of protecting and controlling the oil fields, the US won’t be keeping the money.

“The revenue from this is not going to the US, this is going to the SDF,” Hoffman said, suggesting the US-backed Kurds will get all the money. That’s still entirely speculative, however, because no US company has expressed any willingness to extract the oil in the first place.

It’s also not what has been sold to the US by President Trump. Trump has insisted that the US would be keeping some of the oil for itself, telling crowds recently that it would amount to $45 million a month and that it was always his intention to “keep the oil.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly think that the Pentagon is "shopping the scenario" of the Kurds getting the money from these oil fields, to try to compensate for the lousy "taste in the mouth" from smaller countries world wide, who are wondering right now; "OK, if the US has decided it can expropriate/steal Syria's oil with no backlash, and since we don't have much of a "standing army", when will the US invade our country for our resources?!?"

The question is absolutely legitimate, given the current US international policies right now.

Facebook Removes News Reporting, Mention of Alleged ‘Whistleblower’s’ Identity

Facebook is removing any mention of the potential whistleblower’s name and is cracking down against Facebook publishers that mention any allegation of the potential whistleblower’s name, claiming they are violating Facebook’s Community Standards and Policies.

For example, on Wednesday evening, Facebook removed Breitbart posts reporting on the fact other respected news outlets have reported the identity of the alleged whistleblower is Eric Ciaramella. Any Facebook user who attempts to click on that article on Facebook is now given a message that says, “this content isn’t available at the moment.”

Report: Fox News Management Forbids Hosts from Using Alleged Name of Ukraine ‘Whistleblower’

Fox News Channel management have ordered network hosts to refrain from using the alleged name of the so-called “whistleblower” — reported to be Eric Ciaramella — who sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump, according to a report.

CNN Business states that while some Fox News personalities want to use the name reportedly linked to the “whistleblower” complaint, bosses have warned against the move. On October 31, an unnamed executive emailed staff that the network had not “independently confirmed [the] name or identification of the anonymous whistleblower” and advised to “NOT fulfill any video or graphic requests” in connection to the so-called “whistleblower’s” identity, according to the report.

At auction: Putin’s executive order to take Crimea from Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s controversial 2014 decree that cleared the way for the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine, which still draws international outrage, is going on the auction block.

The personally signed order tucked neatly into an ornate leather binder could bring as much as $8,000-$10,000, according to Alexander Historical Auctions, hosting the online auction Nov. 19-21.

Alexander Auctions President Bill Panagopulos described his unusual item this way:

An historic modern Russian document with repercussions still affecting the world today, Vladimir Putin's executive order creating the Ministry of Crimean Affairs and integrating the economic, financial, credit and legal systems of the Crimea with that of the Russian Federation. Putin essentially inextricably merges Crimea's economy and courts with those of Russia, making any future return of Crimea to Ukraine nearly impossible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sign) Paul, Paul, Paul, the author of this piece of codswallop, were we having one hell of a case of SMD (selective memory disorder) before you" put this ripe tripe to bed?!?"

Apparently, you are choosing NOT to remember the following, and I would bet that your inner two year old is about to have a raging temper tantrum, because of the following FACTS, Paul:

FACT: Washngton was behind the coup in 2014, and Obama admits that there was a US-brokered deal in support of regime change

FACT: post-putch which put Poroshenko in charge of Ukraine in 2014, the Crimeans smelled "foul" as they knew the "election" was a regime change writ large, and that no semblance of justice could ever come out of Kiev again with that corrupt bunch which had grabbed the gonads of power here.

So what did the Crimean people do, Paul?!? And why the hell did you not know this, or ar you choosing not to mention this, because it does not fit your, and the Deep State's "agenda" here?!?

They did two things, Paul; FACT: the Crimeans held a referendum to determine if they wanted to stay with Ukraine post-putsch, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. Overwhelmingly, they voted to leave Ukraine, and petition the Russian Federation. 2014:
Crimean status Referendum

Paul, I don't get it; you are supposed to be some kind of arbiter of truth, as a journalist; not a mole for the deep state; and if this information was available to me with a cursory search on line, my question is, WHY WAS IT NOT AVAILABLE TO YOU?!?

No, Paul; you are either intellectually lazy beyond belief, or paid very well to lie to the American people, or both.

And that last, nearly nearly breathlessly hysterical paragraph I cited, made it look like what Russia did here, was an horrendously bad thing to do, when this is precisely what the Crimean people wanted Putin, and Russia to do.

And has your MONSTER case of SMD caused you to conveniently forget, that both Russia and the US are signatories to the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights which includes peaceful self-determination as one of its cornerstones, which is precisely what Crimea did here, with its referendum, and petition to the Russian Federation for membership?!?

So, given your proclivities to always want to characterize Russia as "bad and wrong", will your next move be to "encourage" President Trump to rescind the US's membership in the UN?!?

Sir, you either deliberately got this hellaciously wrong, or you didn't have a clue; in either case, this article is nothing more than a vehicle for propping up the agenda that "Russia is Always Bad!!". an agenda, which cannot be supported by the facts of this case.

Joe diGenova says 'explosive' FISA report will 'ruin careers'

Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova anticipates an "explosive" Justice Department inspector general report on alleged Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuses.

After it was reported Wednesday that a public copy is expected to be released at about Thanksgiving or later, diGenova appeared with his wife and legal partner, Victoria Toensing, on Fox Business to talk about what they have heard.

Host Lou Dobbs asked diGenova to describe his expectations for the report's findings.

Tucker Carlson broke an exclusive tonight on the ongoing Democrat Party impeachment inquisition.

According to Tucker Carlson a Democrat staffer contacted by email the fired Ukrainian ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, and asked for some time to discuss a “delicate” issue days after “whistleblower” Eric Ciaramella filed his complaint against President Trump.

The Tucker Carlson team acquired a copy of the email from that Democratic staffer to Yovanovitch. This was sent by private email to the former ambassador.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) asked Ambassador Yovanovitch about the email during her testimony before Adam Schiff’s impeachment committee.

This whole cocked-up complaint is nothing more than a web of absolute lies, interwoven with half truths.

Testimony bombshell: Obama administration tried to partner with Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian gas firm but was blocked over corruption concerns

A State Department official who served in the U.S. embassy in Kiev told Congress that the Obama administration tried in 2016 to partner with the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden but the project was blocked over corruption concerns.

George Kent, the former charge d’affair at the Kiev embassy, said in testimony released Thursday that the State Department’s main foreign aid agency, known as USAID, planned to co-sponsor a clean energy project with Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian gas firm that employed Hunter Biden as a board member.

At the time of the proposed project, Burisma was under investigation in Ukraine for alleged corruption. Those cases were settled in late 2016 and early 2017. Burisma contested allegations of corruption but paid a penalty for tax issues.

tFacebook Flip-Flops; Mulls New Political Ad Policy After Hillary Warns Zuck "Should Pay Price"

After a chorus of Democrats came down hard on Facebook after CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company would continue to distribute political ads without fact checking them, the company is now 'mulling' changes to how such ads are treated, according to CNN. That said, the company will continue to allow politicians to run unverified advertisements.

Notably, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - who still appears to be having issues accepting the results of the 2016 election decried a "war on truth" last week, and suggested that "Mark Zuckerberg should pay a price for what he is doing to our democracy."

"Part of our problem, those of us who are appalled by this war on truth and this fake news which is truly surrounding us these days, is we’re not very good at combating it. It’s hard because you’re up against algorithms, plus all these other powerful forces, it’s really hard," she added.

"CBS Sided With A Pedophile": Network Fires Staffer Who Had Access To Robach-Epstein Rant

CBS has fired a female staffer believed to have had access to a candid tape of ABC host Amy Robach complaining that in 2016, the network shelved her scoop on Jeffrey Epstein's sex crimes, according to Page Six.

"I've had the story for three years... we would not put it on the air," Robach said on a hot mic moment leaked to Project Veritas. "It was unbelievable what we had, Clinton, we had everything."

It hasn't gone unnoticed that exposing Epstein would have hurt Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US election.

CBS News fires staffer who had access to leaked Amy Robach audio that was revealed by @Project_Veritas

The person who got fired in this situation was the one trying to protect the children who were being trafficked.

CBS sided with a Pedophile.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear CBS staffer who leaked the Robach Audio; welcome to our world; this is precisely what happens to people who have the courage to speak out regarding this kind of ugliness, which is the dark, underbelly of immense power, money, and intel, and the silence it can frequently buy.

Former US Diplomat Calls on Washington to Review Status of Crimea

- Former US diplomat Dennis Ortblad has called on Washington to reconsider sanctions against Russia as well as its position on Crimea with the aim of improving relations with Russia.

"We need to deal with Russia as it is, not as we wish it to be. And our enemy is not Russia", Ortblad wrote in a Tuesday article for The National Interest magazine.
According to the ex-diplomat, Washington should first and foremost change its stance on Crimea's status so that it can review its sanction policy against Russia.

"To recalibrate our sanctions, we must recognise that Crimea will remain Russian. Its population was always heavily Russian ... Crimeans identify with the historic struggles of Russia against invasion from the West ... It was clear to us [during the recent visit to Sevastopol] that the people of Crimea would not relinquish their pride in their traditional Russian identity to accept a return to Ukraine", he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Finally, someone who understands this correctly.

I doubt like heck that this is going to make any change in the US position on Crimea, as that is another "justification" for sanctions against Russia; that being said, however, I would like to hope that what this man has to say, can start being treated as a decent starting point for re-setting US/Russia relations down the road.

DOJ will fight impeachment subpoenas unless Trump administration witnesses are allowed attorneys

The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel released a new legal opinion stating that subpoenas from House Democrats in their impeachment investigation into President Trump will be considered “legally invalid” if Trump administration witnesses aren’t allowed to have an attorney with them while testifying.

The new legal stance by the Trump DOJ is detailed in a five-page legal memo dated Nov. 1, just one day after the House of Representatives voted to formalize the opening of its impeachment process stemming from a Ukraine whistleblower in a near-party-line vote. Republicans had previously complained about the closed-door nature of the impeachment proceedings as well as the lack of a launch vote, but the new legal justification by DOJ could escalate the battle over the Trump administration’s lack of cooperation with the House, as the Trump administration continues to slow-walk some information requests and stonewall some subpoenas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A small, but at least extant, ray of sunshine for those of us watching this Star Chamber procedure, which has been transmogrified into a process which has absolutely nothing to do with the US judicial system.

MEDIA CONCEAL CHILE’S STATE CRIMINALITY, DELEGITIMIZE BOLIVIAN DEMOCRACY 

SOURCE: FAIR.ORG
Chile’s anti-neoliberal rebellion is entering its third week, and the brutal crackdown continues. Hard-right President Sebastian Piñera and his generals have effectively decreed the country’s oligarch-dominated democracy out of existence by sending soldiers into the streets to kill, maim and torture their own people.

And, for the most part, the Western corporate media blackout persists unabated.

October 25’s historic 1.2 million–person march in Santiago—the largest since the end of the dictatorship—has forced some outlets to begin to acknowledge state violence. But corporate journalists continue to largely overlook the Piñera government’s mounting atrocities.

As I examined recently for FAIR (10/23/19), this behavior contrasts remarkably with the corporate media’s unanimous backing of regime change in Venezuela, endorsing insurrectionary protests and vilifying Nicolas Maduro as a “dictator” (FAIR.org, 4/11/19).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers and thoughts for the people of Chile and Bolivia, that they may have the opportunity to be truly, democratically represented by their governments in the future.

Unfortunately, such a state of being may well not come without an intense struggle in both countries; I am hoping it can be as bloodless as possible, but unfortunately, the histories of both countries suggest that it will absolutely not be bloodless.

45 POPULATION CONTROL QUOTES THAT SHOW THE ELITE ARE QUITE EAGER TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE ON THE PLANET

At one time, the elite at least attempted to conceal their boundless enthusiasm for population control from the general public, but now they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore.

On Tuesday, an alarming new study that advocates global population control as one of the solutions to the “climate emergency” that we are facing was published in the journal BioScience. This document has already been signed by 11,258 scientists from 153 different countries, and it openly calls for a reduction in the human population of our planet. This has always been the endgame for the climate change cult, but now a big push is being made to make the public believe that there is a “scientific consensus” that this is necessary.

You can find a summary of the report here, and I would very much encourage you to read it, because it is essentially a blueprint for where the elite intend to take humanity in the years ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isn't it interesting, how in the minds of "the elite", it is never themselves, or their kids, who should be eliminated, but other people and their kids?!?

We already know that some vaccinations have been "weaponized" as anti fertility agents.

“Mass Sterilization”: Kenyan Doctors Find Anti-fertility Agent in UN Tetanus Vaccine?

The article goes on to state: "Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

The limit of family size, has been public policy in China for quite some time, leading to the murder of unwanted girls, and in many cases, forced births and executions of babies, and the immediate sterilizations of their mothers.

China's brutal one-child policy will be catastrophic for us all.

Forget that the science is wrong; the agenda and conclusions are insane; and we are seeing are the seeds of demographic destruction all around us.

In order to resolve the issues facing humankind, and I am the first person to say, yes, there are real problems. But in order to intelligently resolve them, we have to honor real science, and not accept this "junk science" presented to us in small, pre-digested bits, so that we won't think twice, upon swallowing this codswallop.

Journalist Max Blumenthal Arrested for Thoughtcrimes

The award-winning writer and founder of the adversarial news site The Grayzone journalist and best-selling author Max Blumenthal, had his apartment swarmed by D.C police who pounded on his door and demanded that he open it, or it will be broken down. Max admitted to journalist and comedian Jimmy Dore that he was debating in his mind whether or not to open the door or let the officers destroy his property.

Max noticed police had his apartment surrounded, and instead of allowing the police to kick his door in, he opened his door, and armed officers swarmed into his livingroom and presented Max with a warrant for his arrest. DC police then arrested Max Blumenthal on a five-month-old warrant for simple assault stemming from an event in which Max Blumenthal attempted to smuggle food into the Venezuelan Embassy to activists of the Embassy Protection Collective.

MAN UNDERPAID HIS PROPERTY TAXES BY $8.41. THE COUNTY SEIZED HIS PROPERTY, SOLD IT—AND KEPT THE PROFITS.

SOURCE: REASON
An 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan underpaid his property taxes by $8.41. In response, Oakland County seized his property, auctioned it off to settle the debt, and pocketed nearly $24,500 in excess revenue from the sale.

Under Michigan law, it was all legal. And hardly uncommon.

Uri Rafaeli, who lost his property and all the equity associated with it, is just one of thousands of people to be victimized by Michigan's uniquely aggressive property tax statute. The law, passed in 1999 in an attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation of abandoned properties, empowers county treasurers to act as debt collectors. In the process, it creates a perverse incentive by allowing treasurers' offices to retain excess revenue raised by seizing and selling properties with delinquent taxes—even when the amount owed is miniscule, and even when the homes aren't abandoned or blighted at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us call it by its right name: theft by government, writ large.

It is no wonder the Feds, and State officials are tripping all over themselves, and each other, to rescind gun rights in this country.

TRUMP OKS WIDER SYRIA OIL MISSION, RAISING LEGAL QUESTIONS

Legal questions. That’s hilarious.

I just want to remember the good old days, when they felt the need to dazzle us with yellow cake uranium fraud before they stole the oil.

Via: Military Times – AP:

President Donald Trump has approved an expanded military mission to secure an expanse of oil fields across eastern Syria, raising a number of difficult legal questions about whether U.S. troops can launch strikes against Syrian, Russian or other forces if they threaten the oil, U.S. officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know how many international treaties, to which the US is also a signatory, the US government has breached by taking this position, that they have every full, and legal right to control and sell Syria's oil, but I am betting that the number is potentially staggering.

My near-bet would be on Israel staging an horrendous false flag, causing many US service members to be killed or maimed for life, to be blamed on both Russia and Syria.

At that point, Trump will have his alleged "justification" for a war against both Syria and Russia; but Mr. President, if you allow yourself to be cornered into taking this action, it will be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly idiotic things you could possibly do at this time.

I would like to suggest a scenario which has probably been war-gamed to death by the IDF, but let us look at the following; if Russia, the US, Iran, and Saudi Arabia are in hot conflicts around the world, and become broken by the conflicts, militarily and monetarily, who potentially gets control of the Mid-eastern oil, and I mean, all of it, once the dust settles?!?

Israel.

Mr. President, please do not consider Bibi Netanyahu your friend; at best, he, and Tel Aviv, are more like Frenemies.

UNDER SHROUD OF SECRECY US WEAPONS ARRIVE IN YEMEN DESPITE CONGRESSIONAL OUTRAGE

SOURCE: KRDO
The awkward camera angle is meant to hide the fact that the owner of the phone is filming, but there is no mistaking the outlines of the heavy cargo being deposited on the dock in the Yemeni port of Aden last week.

The distinctive shape of the US-made Oshkosh armored vehicle stands out in the early morning darkness, a piece of military hardware that is currently at the heart of a standoff between some American lawmakers and President Donald Trump’s administration.

Aden is controlled by the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen, whose main partners are continuing to ship American-made weapons into the country despite bipartisan outrage in Congress over the way the US is backing Riyadh in this bloody and bitter conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here's the long and short of it; the US government has been allowing sales of billions of dollars' worth of US-weapons to the Saudi Arabian military for its genocide in Yemen, and I would imagine that, given the intensity of the size of this delivery, that the Saudis are about to embark upon a "scorched earth, scorched non-combatants" policy.

And of course, you will never see or hear a word of it on US Presstitute Corporate Channels, because such honest reportage would "put the US and Saudi Arabia in a really bad light."

There are times when courageous men and women, need to put the acts of war criminal nations into the light of public awareness; and looking at what the US and Saudi governments are doing in Yemen now is, definitely one of those times.

And IF Congressional representatives were REALLY " that outraged", they would have passed veto-proof bills, in both houses of Congress, long ago, refusing to allow the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia; they only want to appear to be outraged, because some responsible Americans are paying attention to this, and sharing information, just as we do here at WRH.

Trust me, the outrage isn't any where near as intense as Congressional Representatives would want you to believe; particularly if weapons companies are donating heavily (both overtly and covertly) to their upcoming political campaigns.

COPS NOW USING WARRANTS TO GAIN ACCESS TO DNA SERVICES' ENTIRE DATABASES

SOURCE: TECH DIRT
Cops have discovered a new source of useful third-party records: DNA databases. Millions of people have voluntarily handed over personal information to a number of services in exchange for info on medical markers or distant family members.

Investigators are submitting DNA samples from cold cases in hopes of tracking down criminals who’ve managed to evade them for years. It has led to the closing of some cases, which is all agencies need to argue for continued access to DNA samples from millions of users.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I used to think about using DNA services to get a little more background on my ancestors; however, with recent revelations, (and not that I have done anything to cause any police to come knocking at my door), I don't think I want to at this point in time.
