DICTATORSHIP | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

DICTATORSHIP

Epstein Arkancided or he's the Scarlet Pimpernel. Why is it so Crowded on the Highway to Hell? Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Now we know why that 'conspiracy thinking is a crime' thing was booted up by the FBI. In any case, Epstein DID NOT kill himself. Epstein was/is a narcissistic sociopath. Under NO circumstances do people of this ilk take their own life.

On the matter of corruption, there is zero doubt that those FBI agents and CIA operatives and what have you from wherever, are unaware that a small handful of Stone Age Arabs DID NOT attack the United States on 9/11. It was a joint effort between Israel and rogue elements of US intelligence services, with some assistance by MI6... the Turks and sundry. The complete article by Warrior for Truth; Christopher Bollyn can no longer be found but, here is a little something by someone else.

He was running the world's biggest honey pot scheme for the Mossad. That's your bottom line for the whole escapade. Everything else is just window dressing and obfuscation.

Jeffrey Epstein Dead? I Seriously Doubt It!

I smell a rat here in terms of this "suicide" and several of my fellow Canadian bloggers have been all over this "suicide" and have posted some interesting material at their own blogs... I do want to start with an interesting report that Greencrow, who of course hails from the wild and untamed region of southern British Columbia, and writes the important blog: "Greencrow As The Crow Flies" at www.greencrowasthecrowflies.blogspot.com.... Here in fact is the link to Greencrow's own assessment of this "Epstein suicide" right here for my own readers to ponder:

THEY USED RANDOM TRAINING PHOTOS FOR THE EPSTEIN DEATH HOAX AND ONE OF THEM IS A PHOTO OF EMT'S TRAINING IN A NYFD GARAGE, WHERE THEY PARK THE FIRE TRUCKS. THEY SPLICED EPSTEIN ONTO THE GURNEY IN PLACE OF WHAT WAS PROBABLY A "RESUSCI ANNE" DOLL THAT WOULD BE USED FOR TRAINING. THE ORIGINATED IN AN NYFD GARAGE, AND NOT THE HOSPITAL, WHERE THE NEW YORK POST CLAIMED HE WAS TAKEN.

Here It Is… Complete List of Clinton Associates Who Allegedly Died Mysteriously or Committed Suicide Before Testimony, Including Jeffrey Epstein

The BOP has 2 stories now. They took him off suicide watch or the cameras malfunctioned. LIARS!

On Saturday multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, the highest profile prisoner in US custody, was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan.
This occurred the day after two thousand previously sealed court documents involving the Jeffrey Epstein child sex abuse case were released to the public.

The documents described how Bill Clinton held a private party on Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island.

Clinton made at least 27 times trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane. Most of those flights were with underage girls.

JEFFREY EPSTEIN TAKES HIS OWN LIFE IN HIS PRISON CELL

SOURCE: RT

Millionaire financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has died in a Manhattan jail, with law enforcement sources saying he killed himself. Epstein was in custody pending trial for child sex trafficking and for conspiracy.

The incident comes two weeks after the 66-year-old was found “injured and in a fetal position” on the floor of his cell, with injuries to his neck. Epstein had been placed on suicide watch as a result.

Law enforcement sources told multiple news outlets that Epstein had committed suicide on Saturday morning, with his body wheeled out and taken to a New York hospital around 7:30am.

Epstein was arrested on July 6 and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy. The charges against the millionaire allege that he'd abused dozens of young girls at his properties in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Florida, some of them as young as 14. Aside from the offenses alleged, rumors circulated of further child abuse at Epstein’s private Caribbean island.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Suicide, my ASTROLABE!!

So allegedly, his lifeless body was taken out of his cell, and taken to a New York Hospital, which remains unnamed in this article?!?

Forgive me, but if the guy was already dead, theoretically, why take him to a hospital?!? To cover up how he died, because the US government knew that this particular hospital, would be completely subservient to its wishes, and would not present any evidence, ever, of how the man really died?!?

Apparently, there were enough Russians in Epstein's rolldex (or computer files), to make those in the Russian Deep State sweat, that they characterized this as a suicide.

And one has to wonder; will there be an autopsy, and will the results of the autopsy be made public?!? Not one chance in hell; and let me share why with you; Jewish Morning

The article goes on to state the following:

'Why do Jewish funerals usually take place so soon after the death, and is it OK to wait longer to allow family members to travel?

"Traditional Jewish law requires that a person be buried within 24 hours."

Ever since the assassination of President Kennedy, in an incredible and complex dance between power and debauchery, the US, and Global Deep State, have shown their hands, time after time, because they have, over many years, earned their PH Ds (Washingtonese for: " crud piled higher and deeper") in "public misdirection", both nationally and globally.

And for those ready to swallow this codswallop whole, I have some of Saddam Hussein's (non-existent) weapons of mass destruction to sell you!!

But there may be those who will be sleeping a little more soundly, now that Epstein has been "neutralized"; perhaps the Gruesome Twosome, Bill and Hil?!?

Clinton's presidency, has been the only Presidency to date with a known body count; and please remember: Hillary mightily advocated for the assassination of Moamar Ghadaffi for having had the temerity to think about introducing a gold backed dinar, which would have wiped the floor with the US dollar.

Hillary Clinton Emails reveal the true motive for Libya intervention
Hillary Clinton Laughs about the assassination of Moammar Ghaddafi

There is a marvelous line from the cancelled TV show, "Elementary", in which Sherlock is characterizing his father to Joan Watson as someone who has "assassins on speed -dial"; such an observation may be far closer to the truth, than most Americans would want to admit.

EPSTEIN’S “SUICIDE” AND A BRIDGE IN BROOKLYN

Is it even remotely possible pedo trafficker for the elite, Jeffrey Epstein, killed himself in a suicide-watch, ligature-resistant Manhattan jail cell?

Elite knowledge management – delete database https://t.co/UmPJ6GoGum

— CatherineAustinFitts (@TheSolariReport) August 10, 2019

Epstein didn’t kill himself. He was killed so there wouldn’t be a trial and the perverse crimes of a psychopathic elite wouldn’t be revealed to the commoners. I predicted this on the day he was arrested. Jeffrey Epstein’s days are numbered.

If the state and its corporate media want me to believe Epstein is in fact truly dead, they will have to show the body and allow a neutral party to take a DNA sample. We will have to see the CCTV footage of what happened in that cell. I no longer believe what the state, its institutions, its “correctional facilities,” and a propaganda media tell us. Everything must be independently verified.

Listen to the first minute of this video:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nimmo, as nearly always, gets this correctly.

And Kurt, I hear you; the Epstein scandal was getting waaaay too much press, therefore, had to be "neutralized" in favor of other bits and pieces, "grooming" the American public for yet more wars against whatever "villian du jure" who needed to be killed, to protect this Banana Republic's agenda.

Since the assassination of JFK, this country has become the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, with less legitimacy than has an honest whore.

The rich are becoming monumentally more rich; the poor, disenfranchised, uneducated, and barely-hanging-on, are being marginalized even further, with no education which makes sense; no critical thinking skills being taught; and in some areas, with military service as the only way to perhaps better ones'self, if you are lucky enough not to get killed, chemically poisoned from burn-pit duty, or maimed for life, through these endless, well-considered, but ineptly fought wars, to control all nations' natural resources.

Karl Marx has been proven right, through 20th and 21st century wars; all wars are economic in their origin.

And unfortunately, anyone who disputes this, does not have either an on-going relationship... with sanity, or the true nature of the history of this country's actual evolution.

Oh, and can we mention, perhaps, the war crimes in which the US government and military have been thoroughly, and completely, complicit, from the 60s through today?!?

Folks, this country has become The Assassination Nation, from Vietnam, through the war crimes being committed in your name today (and with your tax dollars)in places like Syria and Yemen.

The Epstein case may wind up as just a bleached-out, sanitized footnote in history; but it does teach us that debauchery, and power, waltz hand in hand, throughout human history, and particularly through the real history of the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika.

EPA reauthorizes use of ‘cyanide bombs’ to kill wild animals

The Trump administration has reauthorized the use of controversial traps dubbed “cyanide bombs” to kill coyotes, foxes and other animals across the US.

“Cyanide traps can’t be used safely by anyone, anywhere,” said Collette Adkins, carnivore conservation director at the Center for Biological Diversity.

In 2017, a child was temporarily blinded and three pet dogs killed in two incidents involving the use of M-44s in Idaho and Wyoming, the BBC reported.

Canyon Mansfield’s family successfully sued the US government for $150,000 last year. One of the devices had been placed near their property in Pocatello, Idaho, and his dog triggered the device, The Guardian reported.

America Is Not Going To Be A Free And Open Society Any Longer

Whenever a tragic act of violence makes national headlines, the calls to give up more of our freedoms and liberties in exchange for the promise of increased security become deafening.  But if we take another step toward becoming an authoritarian society every time something horrible happens, eventually we won’t have any of the basic liberties and freedoms that previous generations of Americans fought so hard to secure for us.

INDIA TELLS PAKISTAN TO ‘ACCEPT REALITY’ AND STOP INTERFERING IN OTHER COUNTRIES’ INTERNAL AFFAIRS

SOURCE: RT
Pakistan must “accept reality” and stop poking its nose in the internal matters of other nations, New Delhi has said. The rebuke comes amid growing tensions over the disputed Kashmir territory.

A spokesman for India’s Ministry of External Affairs condemned Islamabad after it suspended the last rail line linking the two countries.

Raveesh Kumar said that Pakistan must “accept reality” and stop taking “unilateral actions.”

“This has been done without consulting us. We’ve urged them to reconsider their decision. Our sense is that whatever is being done by Pakistan is to present an alarming picture of bilateral relationship.”

On Monday, the New Delhi government revoked the special status of Indian-administered Kashmir, a move that has enraged Islamabad and led to a spike in tensions.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has insisted that the move would help stamp out “the separatism, corruption and terrorism” plaguing the disputed territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Modi has to understand the following:

Modi’s Kashmir Decision Is the Latest Step in Undoing Nehru’s Vision

To the Prime Ministers Modi and Khan and some of the "Adults in the Room" who are watching this escalation start to move out of control (and YES, Sergei Lavrov, I MEAN YOU!!)

Please: the people of Kashmir do not deserve a shooting war here; I would like to think that you all have what my late Grandfather would characterise as "Horse sense", to understand what a total calamity a war between a nuclear-armed Pakistan, and a nuclear-armed India would be.

So please, enough"male attribute measuring" from BOTH Prime Minister Khan, and Prime Minister Modi; and yes, I mean that, with all my heart.

Peace, throughout the entire region, is what needs to be attained here.

So Chinese President Xi Jinping; and America's President Trump, you both have to weigh in here, in an intelligent, reasonable way, and stop this madness from moving forward.

You both need to have your people working the bloody phones, 24/7, until you get assurances that both the leaders of Pakistan and India, will give peace, and confidence-building measures, another chance. The world is already unstable enough as it is, without an all-out, India/Pakistani nuclear war.

US: IRAN SHIPS POSE AS US WARHIPS TO JAM OIL TANKERS’ GPS

SOURCE: OILPRICE.COM
The U.S. Maritime Administration has issued a fresh warning regarding commercial shipping in the Persian Gulf and the key oil chokepoint the Strait of Hormuz, saying that vessels in the area may encounter GPS interference and “spoofed bridge-to-bridge communications from unknown entities falsely claiming to be U.S. or coalition warships.”

“Vessels operating in the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, and Gulf of Oman may also encounter GPS interference, bridge-to-bridge communications spoofing, and/or other communications jamming with little to no warning,” the latest advisory reads.

In at least two of the incidents in the Middle East in the past months, vessels reported GPS interference, according to the U.S. Maritime Administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I seriously doubt like heck. that the Iranian government would have called for such careless, irresponsible actions from their Navy.

So because this is being preached as though it were "gospel", I cannot take these warnings seriously, as they appear, perhaps, to be part of a "false flag" operation by the US and the West, to get one of their ships in real trouble, and claim that the Iranians did it.

WHY IS SAUDI ARABIA GIVING UP A TRACT OF LAND THE SIZE OF MASSACHUSETTS FOR "THE WORLD'S FIRST INDEPENDENT INTERNATIONAL ZONE"?

It has been reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman originally came up with the idea for the city when he “pulled up a map of his country on Google Earth and saw its northwest quadrant was a blank slate.” He ultimately decided that it would be an ideal location for “the city of the future”, and he enlisted an army of U.S. consultants to help him fulfill his dream.

But will his dream ultimately become a nightmare? There are some extremely alarming things that I want to tell you about, but first let’s talk about some of the cool stuff that is planned for the city…

The in-development Saudi Arabian city-state will have robot maids, flying taxis, and glow-in-the-dark sand, according to confidential planning documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. An artificial moon will light up the sky every night, and a Jurassic Park-style island will let visitors mingle with robot dinosaurs.

Sounds like a fun place to live, right?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the Butcher of Yemen; before you start construction here, please stop killing innocent civilians; women, babies, and the medically fragile elderly in Yemen.

IF you think, for one millisecond, that this project will wipe your hands clean of the blood you (and your American compatriots) have caused to be shed in Yemen, you are, unfortunately, very sadly mistaken.

I would like to politely remind you, that the genius novel "1984", by George Orwell, was a cautionary tale; not a how to manual!!

And how many of your citizens will be making enough money, to come and see this wonderland, once it is created?!? The horrendous disparity of wealth in your county, may make this impossibly challenging for most of your financially, and politically, and religiously challenged, citizens.

I, as a confessing Christian, could not even make it through the airport at Riyadh!!
Freedom of Religion nonexistent in Saudi Arabia

I would certainly like to be able to "cheer on" this project, but not unless and until, you are able to leave Yemen, and grant all your people freedom of worship in Saudi Arabia.

UAE Frees Activist After 5 years in Detention For Tweeting Against Torture

Authorities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have freed activist and political prisoner Osama al-Najjar after detaining him for more than five years.

Al-Najjar, who was arrested in March 2014, served a three-year jail sentence for posting tweets denouncing torture in UAE prisons. Despite completing his sentence, he remained in arbitrary detention for more than two years, before he was released on August 8, rights groups said...

Journalists working online across the globe face legal threats all too often. While state authorities will sometimes press charges against journalists in direct response to their work, other times they will pursue a criminal case or accusation against a journalist without explicit reference to the person’s reporting, accusing them of crimes like tax evasion.

USA: THE TYRANNY OF THE POLICE STATE DISGUISED AS LAW-AND-ORDER

SOURCE: TRUEPUBLICA
By John W Whitehead – US Constitutional attorney, Charlottesville, Virginia: Enough with the distractions. Enough with the partisan jousting. Enough with the sniping and name-calling and mud-slinging that do nothing to make this country safer or freer or more just. We have let the government’s evil-doing, its abuses, power grabs, brutality, meanness, inhumanity, immorality, greed, corruption, debauchery and tyranny go on for too long. We are approaching a reckoning.

This is the point, as the poet W. B. Yeats warned, when things fall apart and anarchy is loosed upon the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I find Whitehead's work very definitive of how I feel, about what is going on right now, in terms of how the"kleptocracy", at every level of government, has turned the governing of this "democratic republic", literally on its head.

I refuse to resort to, or advocate, violence in my quest to perhaps awaken some of the people around me; hurting has never been an option for me, as long as I have been able to post to Mike's blog.

But all of us, united, need to bring this country back, peacefully, to the kind of nation our founding fathers (and the women who loved them) envisioned, even with our wizbang, incredible technology which they might not have been able to imagine, in their time.

Truly representative democracy, has never been so critical to this country, as it is today.

The lies of both the past, and the present, cannot be allowed to stand, as the basis for US foreign or domestic policy; every kid in this country deserves the kind of education they would get is they lived in Beverly Hills, or Hamilton New York.

We understand how kids succeed and how and why kids fail; why are those lessons not experienced in a vast majority of schools which do not give kids the tools to succeed?!?

If I ruled this country (not a concept I would ever seriously entertain at 70), logic, and critical thinking, would be introduced in kindergarten, and go from k to 12th grade.

This is not a time for division; it is a time to stand together, as one people, and, realize what a lousy hand this country has been dealt, by its leadership, for far too long.

It is time for the change the politicians in this country do not want to see happen; it is time that this government to actually take care of the people they govern, in a positive, enlightened, minimally invasive, and kind way; it is time for the "feudal warlordism ", which has informed US foreign policy for way too long, to dissolve, and be replaced by a pragmatist policy, which treats all nations with both respect and logic.

And yes, as I type this, I hear a number of our readers groan, and say that I am asking for the impossible; but sometimes, the impossible is actually within reach, if humankind goes about asking for it in the right way; and I am hoping (and praying) that my brother and sister Americans, understand this.

My two great heroes of the 20th century, are Mahatma Gandhi, and Dr. Martin Luther King; they could have chosen violence, as their way to get their voices heard, but both chose peaceful confrontation over violence in a consistent manner. That is why I respect the legacy of these men.

We who support both peace and prosperity, as the best possible outcomes to this nation's future, need to do the same.

COP "BROKE NO LAWS" WHEN HE WENT TO INNOCENT FAMILY'S HOME, SHOT HUSBAND THROUGH A WINDOW

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Simpsonville, SC — In case after corrupt case, we have reported on police officers who shoot and often kill entirely innocent people — on video — and face no consequences. Even when they are caught lying about what actually happened, the officers involved in the shooting and the subsequent cover up, are almost never held accountable. Case in point, the following story out of South Carolina in which a cop walked up to an innocent man’s home, shot him through the window, lied about it, and the department ruled that he “broke no laws.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My heart weeps for this family, and we are going to need to have a peaceful, fact-informed national conversation about excessive use of force by our police, in this country.

When a narrative does not even begin to compete with body-cam footage, we have a real problem in this country, and one which screams to be rectified.

Unconstitutional and Tyrannical Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws Are Coming FAST

If it sounds to you like Red Flag laws are actually the imposition of “pre-crime” policies, you’re right. If they sound unconstitutional to you, you’re also right. Red Flag laws violate at least three Amendments to the US Constitution – the First, Second, and Fourth.

A Few Words About Guns and Personal Liberty

The United States is not New Zealand, where a national legislature, animated by fear and provoked by tragedy, can impair fundamental liberties by majority vote. In America, neither Congress nor the states can outlaw whatever handguns or rifles they want to outlaw or infringe upon the right to own them. -- The government can no more interfere with Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty — speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership — would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority. -- That’s why we have a Constitution.

Ending Gun Violence Isn’t An Aim Of Antigun Leftists; Its Only a Mere Talking Point

Collectivist tenets of Marxism, Socialism, Communism, upon which the Leftist agenda absolutely depends, requires, for its success, the subjugation of the American citizenry. This is a matter impossible for the Internationalist Collectivists to accomplish as long as the Second Amendment of our Nation's Bill of Rights remains, in all its glory: preserved, robust, strong, absolute, as the founders of our Nation, the creators of our free Republic, a Constitutional Republic—one comprising an autonomous, powerful, armed citizenry—had unequivocally intended.

The Dark Side of the Universal Background Check Bill HR8

What is needed are not more background check laws, but enforcement of existing laws. If bad guys are illegally trying to purchase a firearm, they need to be punished. The lawmakers pushing H.R. 8 do not want to do that. They are not serious about stopping bad people from getting guns, they only care about gutting the Second Amendment.

Aug 08 16:10

It’s All About the Approach when defending the Second Amendment

One of the biggest problems we have as Second Amendment supporters is that the vast majority of national media outlets often work to distort the issues surrounding our right to keep and bear arms. They also look to put us in the worst possible light or to cheerlead for certain policies. That makes how Second Amendment supporters come across to their fellow Americans a very important matter. All too often, too many of them help the media smear us with comments that are intemperate at best (if not crossing legal lines).

PAKISTAN TO DOWNGRADE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS, SUSPEND BILATERAL TRADE WITH INDIA

SOURCE: RT
Pakistan says it’s going to downgrade diplomatic relations with India and suspend trade with the neighbor state. The move comes after New Delhi revoked the autonomous status of the disputed Kashmir region.
The statement by the Pakistani government vowed that the country will take the Kashmir issue to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC).

It also said that Prime Minister, Imran Khan, told the Pakistani military to “continue vigilance.”

On Tuesday, India’s lower house of parliament has voted to downgrades the status of Kashmir from a state to a union territory, which will prevent the Muslim-majority region from making its own legislation.

Islamabad also announced that India's envoy to Pakistan, Ajay Bisaria, will be expelled from the country as part of the response measures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I input this, there are already reports of fiercely heavy fighting, in some areas, along the Line of Control; this situation could go from bad to worse, in less than a heartbeat, for the following reasons:

2015: India and US seal nuclear deal as Modi hosts Obama

From March of this year: China backs ‘iron brother’ Pakistan with primary weapons and complex exercises

And from May of this year: Russia's looming arms sale to Pakistan sets up a dangerous game

Unfortunately, it will not take much for a real shooting conflict to take shape between a nuclear-armed Pakistan, and a nuclear-armed India over Kashmir.

And unfortunately, India has been deaf, dumb, and blind, to an early promise by its leadership, to allow the Kashmiris to determine if they want to stay with India, join Pakistan, or become an entity unto itself.

In 2016, the following op ed appeared in the Express Tribune Blog section: When Nehru Promised Kashmir Freedom, why is India still in denial?!?

So now, what we have in this already volatile area, are US "defense assurances" to India, based on Obama's 2015 trip here, countered by Russian and Chinese defense assurances, (and practical actions by the Chinese government and military) to Pakistan.

War with Pakistan, China, and Russia, with the US supporting India against them?!?

Please, Lord, NO!!

Because unless someone sane in the Bowels of Power in governments around the world is "working the phones", and is creating as direct a communication with both countries' leadership as is humanly possibly, and right the hell now, a shooting war, courtesy of the US and India, and also courtesy of Pakistan, Russia, and China, could well be on its way to this already troubled part of the planet.

Russian President Vlad (the NON-Impaler) Putin, and Sergei Lavrov, white courtesy telephone, please!! And yes we know that you, and your weapons developers love selling Russian military gear around the world (as does the US military industrial complex, and its President, love to sell their military hardware).

And President Trump, we know that you met with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan last week; please, let us get both parties on this to "Contain the Rage and Engage", at a meaningful level, so that a true, shooting war does not break out here; it is the absolutely last thing this world needs right now.

President Trump, we both know, that in the Chinese language, the ideogram for "Crisis" and "Opportunity", are one in the same; please see if we can turn this into an opportunity for peaceful engagement, and a furthering of ties recommences between India and Pakistan.

But you will need to convince the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, that promises, once made by its government, need to be fulfilled, and not repudiated.

If there was ever a critical time for a Kashmiri referendum, is right now, Mr. President: and you're welcome.

WATCH: COPS CLAIM MOCKING MAN AS THEY SUFFOCATE HIM TO DEATH IS PART OF THEIR 'STRATEGY'

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Dallas, TX — As TFTP previously reported, on the night of Aug. 10, 2016, Tony Timpa called 911 asking police to help him because he had a history of mental illness and he was off his medication. When police arrived, Timpa was already handcuffed by a private security guard and was sitting peacefully on the sidewalk, asking police to help him. Instead of receiving help, however, police would mock Timpa and joke as they squeezed the life from him. And now, we are finding out that this mocking, joking, and suffocating was apparently all part of the officers’ strategy.

This month, the details from the internal investigation were released highlighting a disturbing practice by Dallas police which includes an apparent strategy of joking and mocking mentally ill people and ignoring signs of distress.

On that fateful night, Timpa, 32, predicted his own death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These cops need to be arrested and tried for homicide, and convicted through a process of trial by jury,and the police union of which they were members, need to be fined to the point of causing its dissolution.

This kind of assassination by cop, keeps happening in our country, and now is the time to make it stop, and permanently; they knew, and he knew, that he was off his meds, and that should have signalled a significantly different approach in this case.

The case is given more space in the following article, and it appears everything the police had to say about the cause of death, did not happen, as the camera footage will ultimately demonstrate:

Dallas Police Officers under Investigation, following the death of an unarmed man

Prayers for this guy's family.

Israel has successfully launched a satellite which will provide internet, TV and mobile services to the Middle East and Africa.

The Amos-17 satellite was launched at 19:23 local time [23:23 GMT] yesterday from Cape Canaveral in Florida, USA. The satellite was carried into space by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and separated successfully, despite the launch being delayed for several days after a suspected faulty valve was discovered during testing.

It will now spend the next two weeks travelling gradually to 36,000 kilometres above the earth, at which height it will orbit the planet.

The satellite was built by aerospace giant Boeing and designed by Israel-based company Spacecom. Amos-17 will now provide services to TV operators, internet and telephone providers in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as governments and private data companies, the Times of Israel reported today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Satellite services like this can broadcast; but they can also listen, to see what the users are saying, and thinking, about Israel.

And that last statement by David Pollack, Spacecom's CEO, does need a bit of translation; what Israel is hoping to do, is to control the growth of Africa's Sub Saharan vibrant markets, without appearing to have any hands-on control in the process.

AUTHORITIES JAMMED MOSCOW’S MOBILE INTERNET DURING OPPOSITION PROTESTS – NGO

SOURCE: THEMOSCOWTIMES.COM
Russian authorities ordered mobile operators to cut access to mobile data services during last weekend's opposition protests in Moscow, marking the first documented case in Moscow's history, Russia’s Internet Protection Society NGO has said.

Russia's first documented instance of authorities ordering to stifle mobile internet access took place in the country's republic of Ingushetia in October, when thousands gathered against a border deal with neighboring Chechnya. Last Saturday, 1,001 people were detained along Moscow’s central Boulevard Ring during marches in support of opposition candidates rejected from running for city council.

Mobile internet access was restricted in an area of 13 square kilometers in Russia’s capital between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Aug. 3, the Internet Protection Society said Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the US government has never, ever done anything like this, right?!?

And there are no plans to do this here in the US by the US government, right?!? I would like to submit the following article, dated 2013, as a reasonable explanation for what might happen, courtesy of the US government, if it ever feels that it is about to go through a severe lack of public trust, or dealing with a "false flag" which does not go as expected:

This month, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Department of Homeland Security must make its plan to shut off the Internet and cellphone communications available to the American public. You, of course, may now be thinking: What plan?! Though President Barack Obama swiftly disapproved of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak turning off the Internet in his country (to quell widespread civil disobedience) in 2011, the US government has the authority to do the same sort of thing, under a plan that was devised during the George W. Bush administration. Many details of the government’s controversial “kill switch” authority have been classified, such as the conditions under which it can be implemented and how the switch can be used. But thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), DHS has to reveal those details by December 12 — or mount an appeal. (The smart betting is on an appeal, since DHS has fought to release this information so far.) Yet here’s what we do know about the government’s “kill switch” plan:

What is a kill switch? A kill switch refers to the government’s authority to disconnect commercial and private wireless networks — affecting both cellphones and the Internet — in the event of an emergency, such as a viable threat of a terrorist attack.'

And just in case you have decided that you need not worry, because such legislation appears to have gone away, is the following story, dated 2018:

US government still has the kill switch option for the net, and cellular communications

Revealed: how Monsanto's 'intelligence center' targeted journalists and activists

Monsanto operated a “fusion center” to monitor and discredit journalists and activists, and targeted a reporter who wrote a critical book on the company, documents reveal. The agrochemical corporation also investigated the singer Neil Young and wrote an internal memo on his social media activity and music.

The records reviewed by the Guardian show Monsanto adopted a multi-pronged strategy to target Carey Gillam, a Reuters journalist who investigated the company’s weedkiller and its links to cancer. Monsanto, now owned by the German pharmaceutical corporation Bayer, also monitored a not-for-profit food research organization through its “intelligence fusion center”, a term that the FBI and other law enforcement agencies use for operations focused on surveillance and terrorism.

The documents, mostly from 2015 to 2017, were disclosed as part of an ongoing court battle on the health hazards of the company’s Roundup weedkiller.

ITALY TO IMPOSE $1.12M FINES ON NGOS RESCUING DROWNING REFUGEES

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR

The Italian government has progressed a law to impose fines of up to €1 million ($1.12 million) for organisations and groups who rescue drowning refugees.

The law has been heavily promoted by far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

The Italian Senate passed the law earlier this week with 160 votes in favour and 57 against.

The controversial law was passed by Italy’s lower house earlier this year, and it is waiting to be ratified by Italian President Sergio Mattarella.

Captains bringing in “unauthorised” rescued refugees will face arrest, and a fine of between €150,000 and €1 million ($167,988-$1.12 million).

The UN’s refugee agency UNHCR has expressed concern about this hardline approach, saying it could hinder or even prevent rescue efforts at sea.

Charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Italy condemned the move, saying it will inflict suffering and risk the lives of vulnerable people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps Italian lawmakers would prefer shooting illegal migrants in the head... for sport; and of course, the little ones, the children, here would be the prize targets, because in panicking before their assassination, they would be the ones with the capabilities of moving about the most, and make the worst fuss, before they are gunned down, "with extreme prejudice" by Italian lawmakers.

So, Italian lawmakers, if you don't like the above very sarcastic scenario, something has to change about the way in which refugees are treated by your country.

I am no bleeding heart liberal, but what this law proposes, is cruel and unusual punishment of these people, who are already traumatized.

The UN needs to come up with a mechanism to save these people, if possible.

Italy, and their brother and sister EU countries, have neither the money, nor the talent, for dealing with a massive over-run of illegal immigrants, hence, this legislation. They look at what has happened in Germany and Sweden, with the societal changes, and violence, that unvetted immigration has brought to these countries, and do not want the situation in their country, to devolve any further than it already has, by its acceptance of undocumented aliens.

Good governance attracts; lousy governance repels. And while I feel a great deal of sympathy for those who get caught in the economic/social realities of a visibly repressive government, the world, as a whole, needs to find a better, more enlightened way to deal with these issues.

An Open Invitation to Tyranny

The FBI has published a document that concludes that “conspiracy theories” can motivate believers to commit crimes.

Considering the growing acceptance of pre-emptive arrest, that is, arresting someone before they can commit a crime that they are suspected of planning to commit, challenging official explanations, such as those offered for the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King or the official explanation for 9/11, can now result in monitoring by authorities with a view to finding a reason for pre-emptive arrest.

PENTAGON WARNS IT WILL PREVENT "UNACCEPTABLE" TURKISH INVASION OF NORTHERN SYRIA

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Turkey has for days been poised to unilaterally invade northern Syria over US objections, which Ankara officials say is to establish a 32 kilometer (20 mile) inside the war torn country, giving Turkey complete control of a region where the Syrian Kurdish YPG operates (People's Protection Units). Turkey has long considered the US-backed group, which forms the core of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), to be a terrorist extension of the outlawed PKK.

The Pentagon has condemned the impending Turkish unilateral move, with US Defense Secretary Mark Esper telling reporters early Tuesday that it would be unacceptable and thwarted by Washington, though it's unclear how far the Pentagon would be willing to go. "What we're going to do is prevent unilateral incursions that would upset, again, these mutual interests that the United States, Turkey and the SDF share with regard to northern Syria," Esper said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see here; Turkey is a NATO ally, with one of the largest standing armies within the NATO band of brother/sister countries; Turkey has just spurned the US's F-35 in favor of Russia's S-400 defense systems; what could possibly go wrong here, other than the deaths of US service members, pledged to support the Kurdish military in Syria?!?

Everything, including an expulsion of Turkey from NATO, if they go ahead with this invasion; and Russia... has been "grooming" Turkey with an eye toward turning this country into a Russian asset, for quite some time now, and through several US administrations.

One of the most alarming aspects to this story, is that no one in DC appears to have seen this situation coming.

One of the most vile, and ill-kept secrets in DC is that those in the Bowels of Power, and their operatives, remain pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion.; this is why we have Turkey breaking away from NATO in spirit, and perhaps, soon, in fact.

And Russia's President Putin is laughing himself to sleep over this potential Turkish invasion of Syria, potentially creating a really embarrassing situation for the the US and for NATO.

Near-media BLACKOUT on deadly shootings in Chicago that happen EVERY weekend in Democrat-run gun control zone

While it is certainly a tragedy what happened in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday, the president’s “rhetoric” had nothing at all to do with it. The alleged El Paso attacker even stated in his ‘manifesto’ that his feelings “predate” the Trump presidency, and the Dayton shooter, who was killed by police, was an avowed Leftist atheist who despised Republicans and the president while supporting 2020 Democratic presidential contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). -- And yet, not a single establishment media reporter has chastised Warren or any Democrat over it.

Toxic, treasonous media pushing “white supremacist” hoax and hit lists of Trump supporters in desperate scheme to drive America into civil war

Yet the left-wing media all but refuses to cover the political leanings of the Dayton shooter. Instead, the media focuses on the shooter’s skin color, touting the idea that “white people” are responsible for all the mass shootings in America. The “white people” term then gets deliberately conflated with “white supremacy” or “white nationalism” and the toxic media screams in unison that white supremacists are shooting up America. It’s all a lie, of course. A damned, deliberate lie.

Is Mass Murder a Fault or a Feature of Gun-Control?

We had three mass murders here in the US during the last two weeks. The victims were attacked in “gun-free” zones where they could not defend themselves. With frightening consistency, gun-control advocates called for more of the same. ‘Gun-control failed, so we need more gun control,’ they said. Are these failures of gun-control accidental, or are these mass murders useful tools for Democrat politicians and the mass media? The facts speak for themselves.

This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious, and easy for professional historians such as me to explain, document, and prove. This history is uncontested as far as I know, and taught in any comprehensive history class. That said, what public textbooks present are easily-proved lies of omission and commission to glorify and obfuscate American rogue state empire.

The Case for a Coercive Green New Deal?

By Richard M. Ebeling

Social and economic crises, real and imagined, often seem to bring out the most wrongheaded thinking in matters of government policy. Following the 2008 financial crisis and with the fear of “global warming,” there has been a revival in the case for “democratic” socialism. But now its proponents are “out of the closet” with a clear cut and explicit call for forcefully imposed, authoritarian central planning of the world...

The one thing that nearly every mass shooting has in common… and it isn’t guns

If you want to know the real reason why mass shootings are taking place, this is the “inconvenient truth” the media won’t cover. -- Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used. -- The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Exploiting Massacres to Raise Poll Ratings

In El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following the mass murders of Saturday and Sunday morning, the local folks on camera — police, prosecutors, mayors, FBI and city officials — were nonpartisan, patient, polite and dignified in the unity and solemnity of their grief for their dead and wounded. -- But for the Democratic presidential candidates, the El Paso atrocity was like a loose football in the Super Bowl. A mad scramble broke out over who would be first and most savage in indicting President Donald Trump for moral complicity in mass murder.

My conclusion is that government has played a large role in these societal problems.

If the government is consistent about any one thing, it is this: it has an unnerving tendency to exploit crises and use them as opportunities for power grabs under the guise of national security.

As David C. Unger, a foreign affairs editorial writer for the New York Times, explains, “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have given way to permanent crisis management: to policing the planet and fighting preventative wars of ideological containment, usually on terrain chosen by, and favorable to, our enemies. Limited government and constitutional accountability have been shouldered aside by the kind of imperial presidency our constitutional system was explicitly designed to prevent.”

At a time when the FBI’s reputation is at one of the lowest points in history thanks to the involvement of former ranking members in “Spygate,” the plot to overthrow POTUS Donald Trump, the bureau is shopping for technology that allows it to monitor social media in real time, allegedly to spot potential criminal activity.

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to award a firm fixed-price contract for the purpose of acquiring subscription services to a social media early-alerting tool in order to mitigate multifaceted threats, while ensuring all privacy and civil liberties compliance requirements are met,” said a FedBizOpps listing, titled “Social Media Alerting Subscription” on behalf of the Department of Justice.

For The First Time In 25 Years, US Treasury Just Designated China A Currency Manipulator

Following the plunge in the yuan overnight, The U.S. Treasury Department on Monday designated China as currency manipulator, a historic move that no White House had exercised since the Clinton administration.

“Secretary Mnuchin, under the auspices of President Trump, has today determined that China is a Currency Manipulator,” the Treasury Department said in a release.

“As a result of this determination, Secretary Mnuchin will engage with the International Monetary Fund to eliminate the unfair competitive advantage created by China’s latest actions.” "

"This pattern of actions is also a violation of China’s G20 commitments to refrain from competitive devaluation."

Washington hasn’t labeled a major trade partner a currency manipulator since 1994.

The Yuan tumbled further on the headline...

He also saw the revolting video, posted on social media, in which an IDF captain and two policemen exult and embrace to celebrate the demolition. That, he says, was the hardest moment. “When I saw people happy over the explosion – that was harder than seeing my building being blown up,” he said."

Freshman Representatives Heading to Israel on AIPAC Sponsored Trip

n Monday, House Majority Leader Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) will be bringing a large delegation of freshman Democratic members of Congress to Israel. The Trip is sponsored by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). A Republican group is scheduled to arrive in Israel on Friday.

These trips to Israel are organized in August of every off-election year for new members of Congress. Hoyer will be joined by chairman of the House Democratic Caucus Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY). The presence of these party leaders shows the importance the trip has to party leadership. It is part of the effort to squash some of the questioning of the US-Israel relationship that has been growing within the party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...the questioning of the US-Israel relationship that has been growing within the party." must continue, and continue in earnest.

And the questions which must be asked of these Freshman Congressional Members are the following:

Why does the US continue to supply money and arms to Israel, even though that is illegal, courtesy of the Symington Amendment and the Glenn Act?!?

And if these freshman demos have never read this, now might be an instructive time to share this legislation with it.

Symington Amendment, Glenn Act

Lawsuit Claims Aid to Nuclear Israel Illegal Under Symington Glenn Amendments

Unlike Iran, why has Israel not become a signatory to the NNPT (nuclear non-proliferation Treaty),and agreed to allow its nuclear facilities, which Iran has done?!?

Why is there no conversation about the horrific way Israel treats Palestinians?

No let up for Palestinians getting arrested and tortured by Israel

95% of detained Palestinian Children were tortured.

Palestinian man dies after 30 days in solitary confinement

Torture in Israeli Prisons: 200 Methods Used against Palestinian Prisoners

And to add injury to insult, last November, the Israeli High Court has ruled the following last November:

Israeli High Court Rules to Allow, and Expand the Use of Torture against Palestinians Held in Israeli Custody

And THIS government of Israel, is touted by Israeli and US politicians, as "the only democracy in the Middle East?!?

When in the name of Heaven, did Israeli "Democracy" get conflated with "Torture"?!?

Can someone out there please explain this to me?!? I must be more than a little thick in my brain, not to be able to put those two activities together.

And the ultimate question must be asked here; do true democracies actually torture confessions out of people?!?

And the short, civilised answer has to be, HELL, NO!!

So, Israel, sorry to have to explain this to you, but true democracies do not torture.

you are going to have to choose one of the other, but cannot, in a 24/7 satellite/cable world, define yourself as both; the optics on this are utterly... schizophrenic.

Defense Chief Sees ‘Rising’ Support for US Fleet in Strait of Hormuz

Speaking to reporters over the weekend, Defense Secretary Mark Esper claimed that he believes there is “rising support” for the US-led naval fleet in the Strait of Hormuz

The US has been pushing that plan for over a month, on the idea that the US would get access to a large fleet to confront Iran, and would only have to contribute about 10-20% of the fleet themselves. So far they’ve gotten no commitments to join the fleet.

Despite Esper’s optimism, the US still has no commitments to join the fleet, though he suggested that some countries might sign up soon, citing 30 nations attending a meeting last week in Florida to talk about it.

Australia seems like a likely candidate, though why Australia would join the US fleet and not the British alternative is unclear. Even then, most nations have flat out rejected the scheme, and Australia’s willingness to consider it at all is still something.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me for having to ask the obvious, but has Defense Secretary Mark Esper gone completely barking-dog mad, to make a statement like this?!?

France, Germany, and Spain have given a resounding "NO" against this, as reported as follows:

European nations give a resounding "NO", to Esper's suggestion of joining a US coalition

"U.S. Lobbies Oil Buyers and Producers to Secure Gulf Against Iranian Threat
India, U.K. boost ship escorts while France and Spain refuse to join U.S. coalition".

Australian parliament is "thinking about it", but so far, that is the best Esper has been able to conjure.

US Planes Enter Airspace Controlled by Venezuela - Venezuelan Armed Forces

BUENOS AIRES (Sputnik) - The US planes have once again entered the airspace controlled by Venezuela, the Strategic Command Operations of Venezuela, a branch of the country's armed forces, said.

"Today [on Saturday], once again US spy planes have entered the zone controlled by Venezuela, violating aviation security and international treaties. The United States continues to openly insult our country," the command tweeted.

This is not the first case of a violation of the airspace of Venezuela over the past few days by the US aircraft. Earlier in the week, the country's Defence Ministry said that those incidents could be regarded as a serious threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has been reported, that President Trump is thinking about a full-blown naval blockade against Venezuela.

So Mr. President, a word, please: Russia and China more than certainly will rally to Venezuela's aid, should you decide to do this. How and with what, I cannot say, but were I a betting woman, I would almost bet that they will.

And a ground war in Venezuela?!? Please remember just "how well" the US did in the Viet Nam war, which was primarily a war of attrition, and in a largely jungle environment. After the epic fail we call Afghanistan, do you really think it wise, to move forward against Caracas?!?

Kindly remember this, when "kicking the concept around" with your cabinet.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

INDIA CLUSTER BOMBED PAKISTAN AS LINE OF CONTROL TENSIONS FLARE UP

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

Another regional conflict could be brewing between India and Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC) that separates Kashmir. Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday requested the international community to mediate the developing crisis as India continues to strengthen its military forces in Kashmir and ordered tourists and pilgrims to leave the Jammu and Kashmir state.

"President Trump offered to mediate on Kashmir. This is the time to do so as the situation deteriorates there and along the LoC with new aggressive actions being taken by Indian occupation forces. This has the potential to blow up into a regional crisis," Khan tweeted.

Khan accused India on Saturday of shelling and using cluster bombs on civilians across densely populated areas on the LoC. He asked the United Nations to monitor the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, and India did use cluster bombs on densely populated regions, this is a war crime, period, end of discussion.

I would strongly suggest that Indian President Ram Nath Kovind needs to take some confidence building steps with Pakistan, to insure no more damage, or deaths or injuries to the Kashmiri people, and come up with a political solution which will ratchet down the tensions here, and create an atmosphere where real negotiations can actually take place.

Because right now, with both nations being nuclear-armed, I am terrified of the risks for unintentional war, if reasonable negotiations are not offered, and signed on to, by all parties.

SCIENTISTS SAY THEY CREATED A HUMAN-MONKEY HYBRID IN A LAB

SOURCE: TRUTHTHEORY.COM
By John Vibes / Truth Theory

Scientists in China claim to have created the world’s first human-monkey hybrid.

The research team is actually from Spain, but they conducted their study in China to avoid regulations against this type of experimentation.

Last week, Japanese scientists made the shocking announcement that they were planning on creating human-rodent hybrid embryos for the purpose of growing organs for transplants.

However, it would seem that other researchers have already made some serious progress in creating human-animal hybrids, going so far as to create a human-monkey. These experiments are also seeking to develop ways of growing human organs for transplant.

The researchers injected human stem cells capable of creating any type of tissue into a monkey embryo, according to The Independent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Playing" with DNA in this manner, is like playing with fire, because of what could go completely out of control before it can be remedied; I simply hope that there is a protocol in place to prevent that with these experiments, because they could go "mammary glands vertical" in one horrific heartbeat.

ERDOGAN PUBLICLY ANNOUNCES TURKEY INVASION EAST OF THE EUPHRATES

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has publicly announced the decision to launch a long-awaited military operation in Syria, east of the Euphrates River, and said that the United States (US) and Russia have been warned and provided with the information necessary.

Speaking at an inauguration ceremony in the north-western city of Bursa yesterday, Erdogan stated that “We entered Afrin, Jarabulus, and Al-Bab, and now we’re going to enter east of the Euphrates,” adding that “We shared this with the US and Russia.”

The military operation has been highly speculated on in recent weeks following talks between Turkish military figures such as Minister of Defence Hulusi Akar and US Envoy to Syria James Jeffreys regarding a proposed safe zone in northern Syria. At the start of the talks in July, Turkey warned that it would conduct the operation if an agreement was not reached for the establishment of the zone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My big question here is, what will Russia do, if this incursion goes ahead, as planned?!?

There had to be some kind of quid pro quo, at least with Russia, for them to allow this Turkish military operation to move forward; I am having a hard time believing that Russia would go along with this, without getting something back for Al Assad, but only time will reveal what that was.

Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the Unraveling of US Empire

The results of centuries of U.S. empire, which began with Manifest Destiny that crossed the North American continent and grew into a global empire, are coming home to roost in Puerto Rico and Hawaii.

For far too long, the rules have been written for Puerto Ricans, not by them. The island has been a colony of the US for more than 100 years and was a colony of Spain before that. It is time to decolonize.

Hawaiian Independence Movement Grows

Native Hawaiians and allies are camped at the base of Mauna Kea to protect the summit of the mountain from the construction of a proposed Thirty Meter Telescope, a massive 18-story, five-acre telescope complex being built on sacred land. Mauna Kea, measured from its base, is the tallest mountain in the world and represents the birthplace of Hawaii island and the Hawaiian people. The summit is associated with a number of important gods and goddesses and is the site of numerous burial places and altars.

The Coming Boeing Bailout?

Let’s start by admiring the company that was Boeing, so we can know what has been lost. As one journalist put it in 2000, “Boeing has always been less a business than an association of engineers devoted to building amazing flying machines.”

For the bulk of the 20th century, Boeing made miracles. Its engineers designed the B-52 in a weekend, bet the company on the 707, and built the 747 despite deep observer skepticism. The 737 started coming off the assembly line in 1967, and it was such a good design it was still the company’s top moneymaker thirty years later.

How did Boeing make miracles in civilian aircraft? In short, the the civilian engineers were in charge. And it fell apart because the company, due to a merger, killed its engineering-first culture.

Jeffrey Epstein became an FBI INFORMANT to secure sweetheart deal and shut down federal probe into the pedophile's abuse of underage girls, government records reveal

Jeffrey Epstein managed to shut down a federal probe into his illicit and illegal activities with underage girls and secure his sweetheart plea deal by providing information' to the government, FBI reports confirm.

A federal investigation into the pedophile led by the FBI was closed out on September 18, 2008 when Epstein 'provided information to the FBI as agreed upon' according to the case agent.

That investigation had been underway for two years at that point, but it was noted in the final report that 'no prosecution will occur in this matter as long as Epstein continues to uphold his agreement with the State of Florida.'

The investigation had been dormant for seven months by then, with FBI records obtained by DailyMail.com showing that the lead agent had not filed a report since February 11 at the time he closed the case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just when I think that the FBI (the Federal Bureau of Ignominy) cannot possibly sink lower than it already has, it surprises me, hiring a hideous miscreant like Epstein.

When the absolutely "morally wrong", such as serially raping under-age girls, becomes the absolutely "morally acceptible" thing to do, as the means to an end, you have to understand, that the whole moral fiber of a country, has been ripped to shreds, and we can expect nothing but more lies from those who signed off on the Epstein deal.

IF he actually gets to testify at his trial, it will be nothing short of a miracle that he got there to testify in one piece, with so many of the monied and well positioned people wanting to have him assassinated.

Israel dodges UN blacklist despite rise in Palestinian youth killed and injured in 2018

Israeli forces killed and maimed some 2,800 Palestinian children in 2018, the highest number in years, and yet were not mentioned on an annual United Nations blacklist of armed forces that commit atrocities against youth.

Some 59 Palestinian children were killed last year and 2,756 more were injured — the highest number since 2014, according to a report by UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres that will be published this week, an advance copy of which was seen by Mondoweiss.

While Guterres called for a probe into the deaths and blasted Israel for endangering Palestinian youths, the UN chief did not embarrass Israel by naming it on his “list of shame” in the annexes of the survey.

“I am extremely concerned by the significant rise in the maiming of and injuries caused to children across Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory, including by tear gas inhalation requiring medical treatment,” Guterres said in the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UN Secretary-General Guterres knows that his requests to Israel will be answered... just as soon as pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

US Officials Say ISIS a ‘Global Threat,’ But Focus on Africa

US officials are continuing to emphasize that ISIS poses a “global threat,” even though it lost all its territory in Syria and Iraq. While that continues the narrative of an open-ended fight across the planet, officials are also clear the focus right now is on Africa.

It’s not clear exactly why ISIS is being chosen as the immediate focus for US anti-ISIS operations, with so much of a deal being made previously of the group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but the US is hoping to get global support for the Africa fight.

US officials are emphasizing the substantial number of ISIS-affiliated factions inside Africa in their narrative, though of course, not all ISIS are created equal, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Africa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Isis is a construct of the US and Israel.

ISIS Is a US-Israeli Creation. Top Ten “Indications”

ISIS : A CIA Creation to Justify War Abroad and Repression at Home

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals the the US created ISIS as a tool to overthrow Syria's President Assad

The more quickly you can get your head around that "bit", the sooner the clarity will come about why the US government is requesting/demanding an international "response" to "the ISIS threat".

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in origin, history keeps proving this true.

What the US and its Western powers have been doing, very concretely ever since 2001, is destabilise countries with tremendous resources (oil, natural gas, gold, platinum, molybdenum, etc.), regime change their governments; expropriating resources to which it has no moral right; and insuring that these resources are only sold for the US dollar.

Rinse; wipe; repeat.

Anyone who cannot see this pattern, in the wars of conquest against Iraq; Afghanistan; Libya; Yemen; and various other Middle East and African countries, has not been paying attention.

And when you query bing.com, about Africa's riches, here is the answer you get:
The Natural Resources of Africa, and the article goes on to state:

"Which Continent Is The Richest In Natural Resources?

Oil. It is estimated that 12% of the oil produced in the world comes from Africa.
Precious Metals. Africa has the richest reserves of precious metals such as gold, cobalt,...
Timber. Timber is an essential resource in the construction industry and furniture making.

So is it any wonder that the US is "pushing" the alleged "ISIS threat, pertaining to Africa, as a reason to invade it, and do what it has done to so many other countries around the world?!?

No wonder at all.

It is very, painfully, uncomfortable to recognise that one's government, has consistently committed war crimes, against the people with the gall who happen to live over, or adjacent to, the resources the US government wants to control; but that is the stark reality of 21st century America.

China Vows To Retaliate After Fresh Tariffs: Here Is What It Could Do

Now that President Trump has boxed Jerome Powell into a corner by declaring his intention to slap tariffs on the other ~$300 billion in Chinese goods that haven't already been impacted come the first of September, it's worth considering: How will Beijing respond to all of this?

So far, Chinese media has been quiet on the subject, even as domestic markets tumble and the yuan slides. That's possibly because China's senior lawmakers have departed to the seaside resort of Beidaihe for their annual two-week policy conclave. Typically, officials from President Xi on down disappear from public view as they debate policy. But Beijing's minister of foreign trade has already made clear that Beijing is less than pleased with President Trump's latest announcement which, like the last one, took them completely by surprise (though it's not all that surprising considering that the latest round of trade talks barely lasted half a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has become painfully obvious, to anyone with a pair of eyes to see, and ears to hear, and a brain to think, that the nominal leader of the Free World, and "alleged" writer of the book, "The Art of the Deal", (ghostwritten, of course), cannot manage to negotiate his way out of a bloody paper bag!!!

If President Trump did have this capability, we would not be fighting these economic wars with China right now; and that's just a fact!!

And what concerns me most intensely, is how trade wars can morph into shooting wars, sometimes, at the drop of the proverbial hat!!!

Is there not one "adult in the room", in the Bowels of Power in DC, who is capable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion?!?

Looking at the worsening, horrific messes with both US domestic and foreign policies, the blunt answer, has to be, "HELL, no!!"

Multiple Jobholders Soar To Record High As Old Americans Can't Afford To Retire

While the headline payrolls number was solid and just as expected, if a more detailed read showed some red flags (downward revisions, rising wages only due to less hours worked), one aspect of today's jobs report that will likely become a major talking point for Democrats and other critics of the Trump economy, is that the number of multiple-jobholders soared from 7.855 million in May, to 8.156 million in June, to a new all time of 8,389 million in July, a monthly increase of 233K and 591,000 higher in the past three months, which was a clear indication that the jobs number was far weaker than the headline represents if one excludes all those workers who represented two jobs to the BLS' various surveys.

Stock Losses Accelerate As China Warns "Temperamental" US "Will Suffer More Pain"

US equity markets are accelerating losses following confirmation, via a Chinese media op-ed, that the US-China trade war is drifting further away from a deal following Trump's new tariffs.

Full China op-ed (via Global Times)

The US on Thursday unexpectedly announced on Twitter that starting September 1 it would impose a 10-percent tariff on an additional $300 billion in Chinese goods, following the resumed high-level China-US economic and trade consultations in late July in Shanghai. Both sides said the negotiations were "constructive" and mentioned China's commitment to increase purchases of US agricultural products in their statements. It's astonishing and inexplicable that the White House changed its tune overnight and is wielding the tariff stick once again.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What I see here, is thousands of American businesses and farmers who will be hurt on this; and they are seriously not going to forget the economic pain they have endured, courtesy of "Truponomics", in the near future.

US Factory Orders Contract For 2nd Month In A Row As War-Spending Plunges

Having fallen for two straight months, and despite the decline of US (and the rest of the world's) Manufacturing PMIs, expectations were for a rebound in Factory Orders in June and they did, rising 0.6% (but less than the expected 0.7% MoM gain following a major downward revision for May to a 1.3% drop).

New orders ex-trans rose 0.1% in June after falling 0.03% the prior month

New orders ex-defense for June rise 1.1% after falling 0.8% in May

However, this is the second month in a row of year-over-year factory order declines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This economy appears to be headed to hell in a hand basket, and I seriously doubt that there is anything to be done to change that, other than declare a massive war against the usual "suspects du jure"; that .... has, historically, lifted the US out of a depression.

But the question must be, against whom will this war be fought?!? Please, not against China or Russia, as both of them still conscript; have developed some incredible weaponry, and Russia has assisted Syria in getting rid of the US trained/funded/armed jihadis.

Wait, I know: Lichtenstein!!! :-)

You are welcome, Mr. President!!

Apple Suspends Program That Records Users Having Sex And Buying Drugs

Last week, we reported a shocking revelation about Apple's friendly personal assistant tool for mass surveillance Siri: The app "regularly" records people having sex, discussing private medical information, participating in drug deals and other "countless" invasive moments which it promptly sends to Apple contractors for their listening pleasure - all for the sake of "quality control".

Now, in the face of the latest privacy scandal to rock one of the major American tech giants, Apple has reportedly decided to suspend its global internal program for “grading” users' Siri commands following the public backlash over the Guardian's revelations, which came courtesy of a whistleblower.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Siri as a potential blackmail device; who knew?!?!? :-)

As US Officially Exits INF Treaty, Gorbachev Warns Of "Chaotic Developments"

The Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces treaty (INF) signed in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has now officially ended, six months after President Trump issued Moscow an ultimatum to cease its alleged violations.

“Decades ago, the United States entered into a treaty with Russia in which we agreed to limit and reduce our missile capabilities,” the President said during his February State of the Union address.

“While we followed the agreement to the letter, Russia repeatedly violated its terms. That is why I announced that the United States is officially withdrawing from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF Treaty.”

The clock on that timetable has just run out, with the US announcing it has ripped up the landmark agreement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And can anyone in the US government, please enumerate those alleged "Russian violations?!?

Can ANYONE in the US government spell out for me, just what those violations were?!?

My gut is telling me, that Americans making these accusations cannot even get close to explaining what Russia did, because, perhaps, the President and Military understand how "behind the 8-ball" the US is, even with obscene amounts of money thrown at our weapons developers, regarding the evolution of US weaponry, relative to that of Russia.

The Empire Is Coming For Tulsi Gabbard

Authored by Tom Luongo via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The second debate among Democratic hopefuls was notable for two things. The lack of common decency of most of them and Tulsi Gabbard’s immense, career-ending attack on Kamala Harris’ (D-Deep State) record as an Attorney General in California.

Harris came out of the first debate the clear winner and Gabbard cut her down to size with one of the single best minutes of political television since Donald Trump told Hillary Clinton, “Because you’d be in jail.”

Gabbard’s takedown of Harris was so spot on and her closing statement about the irresponsible nature of the Trump Administration’s foreign policy was so powerful she had to be actively suppressed on Twitter.

And, within minutes of the debate ending the media and the political machines moved into overdrive to smear her as a Russian agent, an Assad apologist and a favorite of the alt-right.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although I disagree with her vehemently on the issue of BDS (because economics , rather than human rights or human dignity, is a language Israelis truly understand), this absolutely should not have happened to her, period, end of discussion.

And it is utterly nauseating to me, that at the end of the day, as final presidential candidates are "chosen" by the Deep State, Corporations, and the Military Industrial Complex, I have utterly zero say in who governs this country.

The Powers the Be consistently attempt to cajole me, and whisper in both ears, that I really do have a choice when voting for President and Congress; unfortunately, however, what voting in US national elections has become is a vast spectacle, somewhat like in the film franchise "The Hunger Games", where the one who literally kills all their enemies, is deigned "Champion".

I guess I am supposed to be sincerely grateful there isn't usually that much physical "bloodletting" in US elections, unless one wants to count the dead, maimed for life, starving, and diseased people all over the world, courtesy of US foreign policy.

The wars will continue, and simply focus on other targets, such as, potentially Iran; the genocide will continue in Yemen, courtesy of the Saudi and US military; and people like me, who want to see partnerships, peace, and flourishing for all the world's people will be shunned as though we were some kind of native-born Kryptonite.

People at the head of this country, may change; the agenda of the Deep State; Military Industrial Complex, and Corporate America, collectively, never does.

And therein lies the rub.

16-minute game-changing historical video: Jeffrey Epstein was running a ‘honey trap’ to capture/control political, economic, corporate leaders for .01% US/Israel Deep State

THE STATE NEEDS AN ENEMY: WARREN WARNS ABOUT “WHITE SUPREMACIST” THREAT

Beginning in 2016, we were subjected to the absurd fairy tale of Russia, through Facebook ads, unbalancing the US election system (long rigged in favor of the political class) and the result was the victory of the execrable Donald Trump, a populist primitive and former reality TV star.

The corporate media has wasted little time along with the Democrat side of the one-party hydra associating Trump with racism, sexism, nativism—the polar opposite of the adopted identity politics control device taken on by the state—and thus manufacturing the new threat: the alt-right and white nationalism or white supremacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid in elementary school, and every time there was a test, or something to take home, where it asked for my race, I wrote: "human"!!

Yes, my ancestry is European; but does that, and should that, automatically characterise me as a "bigot"?!? I think not!!

And where did I finish my college education, before the school received its status as a University?!? That, folks, was Cal State Dominguez Hills, and if ever a campus could be described as a "rainbow campus", it would have to have been that school.

There were people who looked like me; African-Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, and others, and we all had our eyes on the same prize, which was graduating from college in order to get a great job. There was a great energy of cooperation, and people helped each other out with more challenging subjects, and working together.

So, Senator Warren, a word, please; I am the last person you could ever, reasonably, think of characterizing as a "racist"; I volunteer for my church, conduct their choirs, and coach individuals who want to sing better. I give back through an extraordinary collaboration between our local Methodist church, and our local Catholic Church, St. Elizabeth's for a working food distribution program at our local public elementary school.

And Senator Warren, about your own struggles with your "identity", we have the following article from last February: Elizabeth Warren's Native American problem just got even worse

Let's be fact-centric, Senator, for at least one moment, please, if that is possible for you: if the DNA does not show Indigenous American Ancestry, there is none!!

FBI WANTS TECH TO TRACK SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS BEFORE THEY ACT

SOURCE: NEXTGOV
The Federal Bureau of Investigations aims to acquire access to a “social media early alerting tool” that will help insiders proactively and reactively monitor how terrorist groups, foreign intelligence services, criminal organizations and other domestic threats use networking platforms to further their illegal efforts, according to a request for proposal amended this week.

“With increased use of social media platforms by subjects of current FBI investigations and individuals that pose a threat to the United States, it is critical to obtain a service which will allow the FBI to identify relevant information from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other Social media platforms in a timely fashion,” the agency said in the RFP. “Consequently, the FBI needs near real-time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available in furtherance of its law enforcement and intelligence missions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like we're headed toward a Chinese-centric model for controlling behaviour by controlling social media, and giving "credits and debits" to all of its citizens.

Of course, what the end result of such sweeping surveillance will cause to happen, is an absolute silence on the internet, with no one saying anything, even if it is of positive social significance.

And my question has to be; if these on-line manifestos did exist, why hadn't the DHS already flagged them, before it was too late?!?

And also, why DHS is absolutely, utterly impotent at finding, and prosecuting malware and hijack ware creators?!? Are they not supposed to be responsible for the security of ALL Americans online?!?

And we have a companion piece, also to be found at blacklistednews.com:
UK Home Secretary wants backdoor access to all encrypted email.

Aug 01 09:24

CNN was manually abusing youtube’s copyright system to order take downs of commentators covering last night’s DNC debate (resulting in 90 day livestream bans for those channels).

I’ve seen CNN do some pretty shady things over the years, including telling their viewers it was illegal for anyone but the news media to read wikileaks source documents, which were easily obtainable online, cutting off an interview with a member of congress (using a seeming fake "technical problem") when that representative mentioned wikileaks and the Clinton campaign emails, or threatening to doxx a reddit user unless the indvidual agreed to abide by conditions laid out by the news outlet.

This wanton display of disregard for the public forum, however, is perhaps the most damning reflection of the danger "news" outlets such as CNN pose to this Republic. While some of their reporting may well be news, their corporate structure induces them to turn our system of democracy into a tool for profit (something which should be resisted at all costs).

DOJ AND FBI SHOW NO SIGNS OF CORRECTING PAST UNTRUTHS IN THEIR NEW ATTACKS ON ENCRYPTION

SOURCE: ELECTRONIC FRONTIER FOUNDATION
Last week, Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray chose to spend some of their time giving speeches demonizing encryption and calling for the creation of backdoors to allow the government access to encrypted data. You should not spend any of your time listening to them.

Don’t be mistaken; the threat to encryption remains high. Australia and the United Kingdom already have laws in place that can enable those governments to undermine encryption, while other countries may follow. And it’s definitely dangerous when senior U.S. law enforcement officials talk about encryption the way Barr and Wray did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with giving government "back doors" through all computer entities is, that the bad guys already have this security already in place and evolving, and the good people may well be encrypting their business methods, to protect themselves against unfair competition.

And secondly, and most importantly, this government has proven, time and time again, that they are not to be trusted with anything more important than a receipt for a pizza!!

PENTAGON: NEW LASER TECH CAN MAKE PEOPLE HEAR VOICE COMMANDS

ZAPPY BRAIN
The Pentagon is working on a weapon that uses lasers and plasma to transmit sound files, even human speech, directly to individual people at great distances.

That’s according to a story by the Military Times newspaper, which reports that military researchers are working on ways to use lasers and plasma to control crowds. The story is short on technical details — but, at the same time, a troubling glimpse of the military’s desire to control people using next-gen tech.

FRIKKIN LASERS
It’s not clear how the tech works.

And for now, the Military Times reports that the Pentagon’s scientists haven’t yet built a speech-transmitting laser capable of passing through a wall — though officials believe it could be ready to deploy in as little as five years.

U.S. NUCLEAR ARMS PLANT FILES REPORTED MISSING

SOURCE: ECOWATCH

The U.S. Department of Justice won't turn over 60 boxes of files about a nuclear arms plant in Colorado because it says it can't find the files. The missing documents were presented to a grand jury during a two-year criminal investigation that looked into environmental crimes committed at Rocky Flats, which produced plutonium triggers for the nation's nuclear arsenal throughout the Cold War, as the Denver Post reported.

The nuclear plant, just outside of Denver, operated from 1952 to 1989 when it shut down amid the grand jury investigation. While running, it had a history of fires, leaks and spills. Files about the plant, however, have remained a state secret since the grand jury investigation concluded in 1992.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Can't find the files", MY ASTROLABE!!!

They have most probably been destroyed, and are a sitting heap of ashes on a landfill somewhere.

North Korean soldier defects to South across demilitarised zone

The South Korean military detained a North Korean soldier who crossed the heavily fortified demilitarised zone that separates the two countries, according to the South’s joint chiefs of staff (JSC).

The soldier expressed his intention to defect to South Korea, the JSC said on Thursday.

The unidentified active-duty soldier was first detected by thermal imaging equipment moving south near the Imjin river late on Wednesday and South Korean troops took him into custody just before midnight.

Also on Wednesday the South Korean military recovered a body near the DMZ suspected to be that of a North Korean civilian, a spokesman for South Korea’s defence ministry said.

Clad in military-type pants and a belt, the body was found in the Imjin river and appeared to have been dead for at least two weeks, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this defection is more than interesting; one has to wonder about which side is this guy really on, and why the defection now, right after Kim Jung Un has already tested a couple of missiles?!?

BIG PHARMA ADMITS MEASLES OUTBREAK AND SUBSEQUENT MEDIA HYSTERIA MADE THEM MASSIVE PROFITS

OURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Since the beginning of the year, the Free Thought Project has been reporting on the hysteria associated with the measles outbreak and the subsequent loss of liberties and police state crackdown that’s ensued. We’ve seen children banned from public spaces, mandatory vaccinations enforced with police action, and a pro-vaccine push in the mainstream media like we’ve never seen before. In May, the pro-mandatory vaccine push reached a new level, as the Washington Post published an article calling for the arrest of those who choose not to vaccinate. Now we are seeing the result of said hysteria and it comes in the form of massive pharmaceutical industry profits.

On Tuesday, the pharmaceutical giant Merck said consumer demand for its measles vaccine skyrocketed thanks to the “outbreak” which helped boost sales in its second quarter.

YEMEN: UAE-BACKED OFFICIAL KILLED IN HOUTHI STRIKE 

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
A UAE-backed commander was amongst those killed when an explosion struck a military parade in Yemen’s southern city of Aden today.

Scores were injured and killed in the blast which rocked the seat of Yemen’s Saudi-backed internationally recognised government.

The Houthi movement said it was behind the attack. Their official channel Al Masirah TV said it had launched a medium-range ballistic missile and an armed drone at the military parade.

“The blast occurred behind the stand where the ceremony was taking place at Al Jalaa military camp in Buraiqa district in Aden,” Reuters reported a witness saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the last 3 years, Saudi Arabia, aided and abetted by the US, has been turning Yemen into a bloody genocide.

And I take it, from the expectations of the Butcher of Yemen, aka Prince Mohammed bin Salman, that the Yemenites are forbidden to strike back?!?

Every thinking person I know, who has written on the tragedy which has become Yemen, says that the only way that this can be resolved, is through negotiation; of course, Prince MBS will not negotiate.

In fact, I am rather surprised that he hasn't ordered a complete carpet bombing of the country, coupled with the slaughter of all its male infants, as did (allegedly) Herod during the time Biblical time of Christ.

Of course, being a 21st century assassin (does anyone remember Adnan Khashoggi?!?) he understands that the optics of such attacks, would not be great for his country.

So he is continuing to pursue a war of attrition, which has no way of ending for him, except badly.

If there were any true justice in this world, this man would be in shackles at the Court for International Justice at the Hague; but the concept is no longer "justice"; for those monied, it's about "Just us!!!"

As Tensions Flare Between US & Iran, More Oil Tankers Are 'Going Dark' In The Strait Of Hormuz

Given the rising tension in the Strait of Hormuz, and the mysterious spate of seemingly random attacks on tankers that some have blamed on Iran, it's no surprise that more captains transporting shipments of crude and LNG through one of the busiest corridors for the global energy trade feel the need to keep a low profile, according to Bloomberg.

Which is apparently why more ships are turning off their transponders - "going dark", in industry jargon - a technique that is typically used by smugglers and those hoping to avoid American sanctions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will only be a matter of time before the US interdicts one of these ships, and claims that it was carrying Iranian oil, and that they went dark to evade the sanctions.

I would like those preciously few "adults in the bowels of DC", to be very careful about what the US does, in such a circumstance, given that Russia has promised that should Iran be attacked, Russia will come to its aid.
Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

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

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

Folks, the US government is playing with fire, if they have swallowed their own moonshine Koolade, about the superiority of US weapons over those of Russia or China; the capabilities of US weapons is still, unfortunately, very much lagging behind those of their Russian and Chinese counterparts.

The more President Trump presses his sanctions, the more unpredictable the responses from Iran may become.

There are two "toys" not currently in this President's toy arsenal, and those "toys" are "caution" and "restraint."

I would like to hope that someone in this administration is willing mention them to the President.

Joe Scarborough Slams Dems For Attacking Obama's Policies More Than Trump's

MSNBC Host Joe Scarborough of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' complained in a tweet last night that the Democratic contenders onstage last night for Pt. 2 of the second Democratic debate spent more time attacking President Barack Obama's policies than they spent attacking President Donald Trump.

Though Scarborough also inadvertently admitted something important: The Democratic Party of today isn't the same party from 2016. Instead, even candidates who once believed themselves to be part of the mainstream have embraced policies that are much further to the left, largely thanks to the influence of "the Squad" and their fellow progressives, who have been gaining influence in Washington since the mid-terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, coming up in what could only be considered a very genteel kind of poverty (but all the other kids in my neighborhood came out of the absolutely same environment, so I really didn't notice until I thought about it years later), my parents encouraged me to thrive where I could, and that education would always be important.

I did go on to receive my bachelor's degree, with honors, at a state college, and the family value here was, that even if I didn't love what I did, I could always find someone who would hire me, which ultimately proved true.

I never took a welfare check, or unemployment check, even though I qualified, during those transitionary points when I was between jobs; and it was kind of a matter of both pride and principal, that I did not do this.

But now, it appears that I am being "commanded" by the Democratic Party, to accept, house, feed, clothe, and educate every illegal alien who comes to this country, so my logical question is, "Why"?!?

Why should American taxpayers be burdened with the costs attached to assisting people who broke the law to be here?!?? And what guarantees do I have at the end of the day, from my government, that those people who are educated, clothed, fed, and housed by this government, will have the ability to become productive citizens once they have been through this process?

This, for me, is the crux of the problem.

With the rise of AI, and the automation of so many processes as to become dizzying to contemplate, the US can no longer be that America to which Emma Lazarus alluded in her poem, The New Colossus:

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

That late 20th century testament to the possibility that one could work hard, and provide a decent life for one's self and one's family, with utterly no education, and be almost unable to speak the language of your adopted country, no longer exists in 21st America.

So why are these people, generally with no skills, no education, and no capability to speak the English language so critically important to the Dementocrats, and why now?!?

Unless one has been living under a rock since the 2016 elections, one has to understand the following, and why this is seen as so critical at this point in time; the Democrats want to see these people voting in 2020, even if they are still illegal, and undocumented, to turn the tide for the Democratic party's fortunes.

The Democrats used to be the party of the working middle class: not any more. Were my late Dad to see the degree to which this party has morphed into a caricature of its former self, he would be weeping uncontrollably.

Although our Australian brothers and sisters have a very draconian way of dealing with illegal immigrants, their concept for citizenship is based on a merit system, and this is a smart way to look at immigration, where citizenship becomes a privilege, and those becoming Australian citizens would be "the best of the best".

Can someone please tell me, where and why this is wrong?!?

We are dealing with a crippling national debt, which cannot be resolved.
Analysis of CBO’s January 2019 Budget and Economic Outlook

So what does Congress do, right before the Summer Recess?!? Raise the spending ceiling - again. Divided House Passes 2-Year Budget Deal to Raise Spending

I mean, hell; it's not their money, so they can do with taxpayer revenue as they wish, right?!?

We have neither a Representative Congress, nor a Representative Administration, at this point in this country's history; we have a government of the monied, for the monied, and by the monied.

And to Vice President Biden, a word, please, on Obamacare; the ACA was written by, for, and of the Insurance Executives who supported Obama:

Zionist Puppet Trump Gives Israel a Free Hand in Genocide of Palestinian People

With all criticism toward Israel silenced in the West, Israel now enjoys complete impunity to make life a hell on earth for the Palestinians.
The arrival of Donald Trump in the White House two-and-a-half years ago has emboldened Israel as never before, leaving it free to unleash new waves of brutality in the occupied territories.

While engaged in the process of “saving” Israel, Donald Trump is going to destroy the United States.

Israel is a demonic evil entity. It has Amerika by the throat. Israel is in the process of destroying the United States because it is a parasite, a vampire. Trump is their man. Trump’s job is to serve Israel.

All the ‘Q’ talk about Trump playing 4d chess is utter garbage. That is the psyop they are using to fool the goyim into believing that Trump is somehow working for the American voter. He is not, he is working for Israel.

You cannot make Amerika great again by giving Israel everything it wants — and more.

US Farmer Crisis: China's US Soybean Purchases Plunge To 2004 Lows

A new report from Bloomberg shows US soybean exports to China collapsed in 1H19 to the lowest level in more than a decade.

The US exported 614,806 tons of soybeans to China in June, according to US customs data. That brought 1H19 China imports of soybeans from the US to 5.9 million tons, the lowest level since 2004, according to Bloomberg calculations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The farmers in this country looked to Candidate Trump to become their economic saviour; unfortunately, because of how President Trump has chosen to play the economic trade game" with China, concerning agricultural products, he has now become their worst economic nightmare.

Tragedy in Gilroy, CA was Made Worse by Gun Control

“The intent of this killer was clear – and his act shows the abject failure of gun control in California and people are paying with their lives as proof.” -- “It was a target-rich environment that policymakers call a “gun-free zone” – and the perpetrator cut through a fence to avoid metal detectors – it’s lunacy to think a piece of legislation was going to stop this monster.”

Gun Control Plus Logic Equals Crickets

My MO is to post a gun rights story, expose the liberal socialist hypocrisy, quote a gun-grabber, and move on to read the lunacy that follows. Yesterday, I responded to someone who claimed to have fled the event safely, and in her final statement, she asked followers to “please fucking support gun-control.” Of course, I took the bait and tweeted this in response: “THE EVENT WAS ALREADY 100% GUN CONTROLLED. (GUNS WERE BANNED) IN A STATE WITH EXTREME GUN CONTROL. EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS, AGE LIMITS, GUN BANS, WAITING PERIODS, AMMO CONTROL, AND WEAPONS BANS. YOU'VE JUST REALIZED THE EPIC FAILURE OF GUN CONTROL.”

Surveillance state: 1 in 2 American adults is already in the FBI’s facial recognition database

To American patriots still thinking inside the box, granting ICE access to such data might seem like nothing but a good thing, seeing as how at least 22 million illegal aliens are currently living in America without permission. But once this pandora’s box of privacy is breached in the name of fighting illegal immigration, it can very quickly be abused as a means to violate the privacy rights of all Americans.
