Big Lie that ‘mass shootings’ like Sandy Hook require public gun confiscation must be flipped: arrest .01% US rogue state leaders to confiscate THEIR guns for shooting millions in lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression, assassinating JFK, RFK, MLK, etc.,

Americans are propagandized with a "Big Lie" that law-abiding citizens must be disarmed because our .01% government engages in mass war and poverty-murders in the annual millions! Please ask and answer for yourself: do our "leaders" care about innocent people and therefore take extraordinary care for public safety, OR are they frightened about public awakening to their rogue state empire and want Americans disarmed to more safely dominate? You are aware that public gun confiscation was our previous government's last move before our ancestors' last American Revolution, so if you honor the breakthrough in freedom We the People stand for, you'd better "arm yourself" with talking points to flip this debate: disarm .01% lying, looting, rogue state criminals, then arrest them.

Dr. Jim Fetzer's debrief on Sandy Hook ‘show trial’: Orwellian ‘judge’ violates right for jury to determine disputed facts, claims five versions of death certificate = ‘no differences,’ silences two expert witnesses proving multiple areas of forgery

show trial: noun (especially in a totalitarian state) the public trial of a political offender conducted chiefly for propagandistic purposes, as to suppress further dissent against the government by making an example of the accused.

"Trial by jury; verdict in civil cases. Section 5. The right of trial by jury shall remain inviolate, and shall extend to all cases at law without regard to the amount in controversy; but a jury trial may be waived by the parties in all cases in the manner prescribed by law." ~ Wisconsin State Constitution

Dissenter addon banned from Firefox addons and Chrome store: Big Tech Shit the bed

Banned for alleged "Hate Speech", Dissenter addon is known as the comment section of the internet. This allows commenting on literally any article, video, and website on the web, even websites that don't allow comments or that strictly moderate. It has reshaped the internet as we know it for the better.

Protect free speech online, make a stink, lobby FireFox & Chrome developers, make sure you tell them to put the addon back up.

I envision a future where dissenter addon ads a comment section perfectly and conveniently to the bottom of every article. For now you click the buttons and addon itself, though there are third party addons that apply the comment section below.

“Be The Change You Wish To See In The World” -- Misattributed, Misused, And Obscenely Underappreciated

Op-Ed by Caitlin Johnstone

Name a quote by Mahatma Gandhi.

Odds are the first thing that jumps into your mind is the famous, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” It’s a good quote. It’s pithy enough to fit on a bumper sticker, and it resonates deeply with something inside us all which tells us that it points to something true and valuable.

But, like so many other pithy bumper sticker quotes we see floating around today, these words were never spoken by the person they’re attributed to. What Gandhi actually said was this...

‘Homeland Security CSI’ July 4th TV special: Agents Dick Strong & Fannie Goode bring ‘Illegal Terrorist Combatant Associates’ to justice!

Satire often demonstrates how our real-world so-called "news," so-called "political leadership," and so-called "entertainment" help indoctrinate Americans to accept dictatorial government. Americans' loss of promised rights are real, forever lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression are real, and exponential debt is real, and the challenge of US .01% "leadership" is to convince the American public to embrace these slave conditions as "necessary" for public safety.

Read on to see this is the point of so much of what we're given to watch for "public programming."

Think I’m joking?

Do you remember after the “confederate statues” debate flared up again, President Trump asked a rather provocative question: “I wonder, it is George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?”

At the time, of course, the president was ridiculed for even uttering such a thing.

Well, here we are, less than 24 months after he made that prediction and Thomas Jefferson is next. And this time it’s not just a statue.

CORE HONG KONG PROTESTERS 'PREPARED TO DIE FOR THEIR CAUSE' DURING RIOTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

A core group of radical protesters who led the violent siege of Hong Kong's legislature on Monday were willing to die for their cause as martyrs, according to SCMP.

Approximately ten 'diehards' with a 'bring it on' attitude had no qualms about facing police batons, rubber bullets or worse, as they broke into and trashed the Legislative Council building.

"The protesters at the front were willing to sacrifice themselves. They turned so violent, hoping police would use aggressive force against them or shoot them with rubber bullets or beanbag rounds," said SCMP's source, adding "If the individuals were badly injured or even killed, all the blame would have been placed on police so as to spark global condemnation, and eventually bring the whole administration down."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the core group "ready to die" for their convictions, a word, please; the Chinese leadership will not ultimately allow these demonstrations to go forward; President Xi Jinping is thoroughly familiar with the power of a 24/7 news cycle, and will find some way to create a "lights off, energy not there" moment, when you will be seized, killed in private, where no one will know where you are when it happens, save for your families who will be charged to pay for the bullet(s) when you are executed.

Simon Saved! One Man’s Relentless Legal & PR Efforts Finally Frees His Dog Sent To “Death Row” By The Government

Animal Control immediately seized Simon, locked him up for 18 months and was scheduled to euthanize him.

'Putting Much of Sicily at Risk': Locals Protest NATO's MUOS Station in Italy

Sicily is continuing its fight against NATO's MUOS satellite systems. The Mobile User Objective System is a high-frequency narrow-band military satellite communications system that consists of 4 geostationary satellites and 4 ground-based receiving stations that NATO uses to communicate and transfer commands to its submarines, fighters and drones.

One of these MUOS stations is located in Niscemi, Sicily.

Last week, on June 21, people from all over Sicily protested against the 'occupation' by military bases. More than a thousand people marched in Catania under the slogans: “US - Out of Italy, Italy - Out of NATO”, “Sicily will be better off without MUOS and Sigonella” [Sigonella - a NATO military base - Sputnik], and “Yankees Go Home.”

Violence escalates at Honduras student protests amid molotov cocktails & police fire (VIDEOS)

Honduran military police opened fire at protesters outside the national university, injuring five people. Authorities said live ammunition was used in response to molotov cocktails which injured officers.

Czech Republic protests: Andrej Babis urged to quit as PM

Hundreds of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of Prague demanding that PM Andrej Babis resign.

Mr Babis is facing a criminal investigation over alleged fraud, and is also the subject of an EU conflict-of-interest investigation. He denies the allegations.

Organisers say about 250,000 people attended the rally. The figure could not be verified.

It is said to be the largest protest since the fall of communism in 1989.

Who was marching?
The protest was organised by the Million Moments for Democracy group. The movement has grown from a small student initiative into a mass movement.

What are the allegations against Babis?

The prime minister is facing a criminal investigation in the Czech Republic for alleged abuse of €2 m in EU subsidies over 10 years ago.

Honduras protest crackdown: Five things to know

The Honduran government announced the nationwide deployment of military forces on Thursday, amid intensifying nationwide protests against President Juan Orlando Hernandez.

Mass demonstrations began nearly two months ago, when teachers and medical professionals took to the streets to protest a series of decrees they say facilitate the further privatisation of health and education.

The movement quickly evolved into nonstop multi-sector nationwide protests and blockades demanding "Fuera JOH" (Out With JOH), using the acronym for the president's name.

At least three protesters have been killed and more than 20 wounded in the last four days alone.

YEMEN’S HOUTHIS TARGET TWO SAUDI AIRPORTS WITH MULTIPLE DRONE ATTACKS

OURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
Yemen’s Houthi movement launched fresh drone attacks targeting Jizan and Abha airports in southern Saudi Arabia, the group’s Al-Masirah TV said on Saturday, adding the installations were out of service, Reuters reports.

The Saudi-led coalition said in a statement that it had intercepted and downed a Houthi drone targeting the southwestern city of Abha.

The Iran-aligned group said multiple drone strike targeted control rooms at Jizan airport and a fuel station at Abha airport.

“The two airports are now out of service. We promise the Saudi regime more painful days as long as the aggression and siege continue on our country,” the group’s armed forces spokesman said in a tweet published by Al-Masirah TV’s account.

The Houthis have launched several strikes targeting Abha airport since Wednesday, when a missile attack against the same airport wounded 26 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis will be sure retaliate, taking as many civilian lives as they possibly can.

It breaks my heart, both to see so many Yemeni non-combatants killed, and the absolutely pathological "tin ear" represented by the Saudi Royal Family, and particularly the Butcher of Yemen, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, when almost every expert in the history - and potential future - of Yemen, state, emphatically, that peace can only be created through negotiation, rather than continued bloodshed.

And, of course, there is that "other issue" which none of DC's Foggy Bottomites" want to discuss, ever; and that his how the US government and military are enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen. And before these articles get chopped, and their authors get deplatformed, and demonetized, please google the following:

"The US government and military are enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen."

Thousands Sign Petition Calling for 5G Ban at Glastonbury Festival. No Scientific Evidence 5G is Safe.

By B.N. Frank

In February, telecom industry representatives gave U.S. congressional testimony that they could provide no scientific evidence that 5G technology is safe. Plenty of research has determined it’s not safe. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently warned that increasing levels of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) could lead to increased health issues for 30% of the population. Experts have warned about this before. Other health experts – including the American Academy of Pediatrics – have been warning for years now that children are more affected by exposure than adults.

It doesn’t make sense that despite all of this (and more) 5G is still being promoted and unleashed around the world. Opposition is growing, though – including in the town of Glastonbury, England whose council has voted against installing it there for now...

Beijing Slams Washington, Warns US To "Stop Interfering In Hong Kong Affairs Immediately"

After senior American senators introduced legislation on Thursday requiring that the US president to protect Americans from the effects of the proposed Hong Kong extradition law, sanction individuals responsible for abducting booksellers, journalists and activists, senior Chinese officials on Friday were predictably less than thrilled, as well as requiring the State Department to re-certify Hong Kong's sovereignty every year to maintain its special trading relationship with the US.

And while more Hong Kong officials urged the government to 'pause' the process for passing the extradition bill, senior Chinese officials have reportedly summoned officials from the US embassy in Beijing to issue a stern warning to Washington not to interfere in the situation in Hong Kong

US Senate Upholds Arms Sales to Bahrain and Qatar

In two surprising votes held on Thursday, the Senate rejected bills by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to block US arms sales to Bahrain and Qatar. The Bahrain vote was 43-56, and the Qatar vote was 42-57.

Sen. Paul has been leading pushes against selling US arms to countries with authoritarian governments. In Thursday’s comments he declared that “dumping more weapons into the Middle East won’t get us any closer to peace.” He also urged the US to “stop sending arms to people who abuse human rights.”

The Senate leadership dismissed such concerns, saying that Bahrain and Qatar would find arms somewhere even if the US didn’t sell them. Emphasis on the importance of the two nations centered on them hosting America’s 5th Fleet and Central Command headquarters, respectively. The White House had threatened to veto either of the measures if they’d passed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What absolutely sickens me, here, is that the US Government, headed by our Merchant of Death In Chief, President Trump, in its weapons sales orgy, has decided that it is simply a financial deal, and who the heck cares about who gets killed or maimed for life, from these dictatorial regimes.

To those who fully understand President Kennedy's quote in 1962; "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.", this country is in "deep kim-chee" (trouble) with these sales of weapons to the heads of brutally autocratic states in the Middle East.

This country is making enemies out of those people who have peacefully demonstrated, and found themselves at the receiving end of all the brutality their countries can dish out.

Let is take a look at one of the most recent outrages with one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, aka Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Saudi teen faces execution for crimes allegedly committed when he was ten

This article goes on to state:

"There have already been at least 104 executions in Saudi Arabia in 2019, with ESOHR putting the number at 107 and Amnesty at 104.

“The Saudi Arabian authorities have a chilling track record of using the death penalty as a weapon to crush political dissent and punish anti-government protesters - including children - from the country’s persecuted Shia minority,” Amnesty International’s Middle East Research Director Lynn Maalouf has said in a statement.

She has added that “There should be no doubt that the Saudi Arabian authorities are ready to go to any length to crack down on dissent against their own citizens, including by resorting to the death penalty for men who were merely boys at the time of their arrest.”

News.com.au, got the story almost straight: Saudi teen faces beheading and crucifixion for protesting as a child

So, hey, Saudi Government, I have "a modest proposal"; why don't you sell rights to the event, livestreamed, while your murdering officials torture, crucify, then behead this kid?!?

Wow, wouldn't THAT provide "magnificent optics" for the real processes of the Wahabbi judicial system, protected by the Saudi monarchy, in Saudi Arabia?!? Hey, let's let the WHOLE WORLD SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING, FOR ALLEGED CRIMES HE COMMITTED WHEN HE WAS 10!!!!

And President Trump, who has become this nation's "Merchant of Death in Chief", with regards to weapons sales to Saudi Arabia, a word, please: I do hope that the Butcher of Yemen, does send you some images of this crucifixion, torture, and beheading of this kid, if it happens; and I say this to you, sir, because you need to fully understand the Saudi Monarchy's Wahabi concept of "justice"; I think that looking at such images, may give you the kind of "grounding" you desperately need, with regard to future weapons sales to the Saudis, and other oppressive countries in the region, like Bahrain.

‘Everyone who resisted was threatened with rape’ says Sudan activist

Women’s rights campaigner and activist Nahid Jabrallah has told the German publication Deutsche Welle that the Rapid Support Forces, part of Sudan’s security services, raped numerous Sudanese women and men as they violently dispersed a pro-democracy sit-in outside the military headquarters in Khartoum last week.

Sudan has been rocked by unrest since 11 April when military generals forced then President Omar Al-Bashir out of office following popular protests against his three-decade rule. Since then protesters have continued to pressure the Transitional Military Council to hand over power to a civilian government.

SUDAN POLICE FIRE TEAR GAS AS CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE CAMPAIGN STARTS

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
Protest campaign will continue until military transfers power to civilian government, organisers say.

Sudanese police have fired tear gas at protesters taking part in a "civil disobedience" campaign, called in the wake of a deadly crackdown on demonstrators, that began on Sunday.

Protesters gathered tyres, tree trunks and rocks to build new roadblocks in Khartoum's northern Bahari district, an unnamed witness told AFP news agency, but riot police swiftly moved in and fired tear gas to disperse the crowd.

"Almost all internal roads of Bahari have roadblocks. Protesters are even stopping residents from going to work," said the witness.

The latest bid by demonstrators to close off streets in the capital comes nearly a week after a deadly raid on a sit-in outside the army headquarters that killed dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do wish the peaceful protestors well: but I am not quite so certain that this will engender a division in the current government , in order to create the Transitional Government in the timeframe for which they are hoping.

I hope the organisers of these protests have told their supporters, that this may well be a long wait in such an event coming, and to not expect any real "victories" toward this goal, to come quickly.

Mainstream media loves protests for democracy and freedom... unless they're in US ally Honduras

Riots against President Juan Orlando Hernandez have been raging in Honduras for several days. But the media press coverage has been very different from protests against Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro. And it’s not hard to see why.

Unlike Venezuela, Honduras is a close US ally.

There have been multiple reports of violent clashes between demonstrators and state security forces since the riots broke out last week over Hernandez’s privatization proposal. Hernandez eventually dropped the plan, but the riots have since morphed into a more generalized protest against his government’s corruption and unpopular policies.

5G Opposition Increases in the Pacific Northwest. Telecom Industry Has Still Provided NO Evidence that 5G is Safe.

By B.N. Frank

In February, Telecom Industry executives gave congressional testimony that they cannot provide any scientific evidence that 5G is safe.

What they didn’t say is that there is research that has already proven that 5G is harmful. That’s why opposition to 5G continues to increase in the U.S. and around the world...

Dole fruit trucks burned in Honduras as protests spread

Protesters burned and looted some 30 shipping containers marked with the logo of the Dole Food Company in Honduras on Sunday, a military official said, in the second attack on symbols of U.S. power in the Central American nation in recent days.

Protests against U.S.-allied Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez have been building in recent weeks over planned reforms that Hernandez’s critics argue will lead to the privatisation of public services.

The attack on the convoy of trucks took place in rural Honduras early on Sunday on a road passing through a village known as Guadalupe Carney, some 330 km (205 miles) from the capital, Tegucigalpa, senior military official Fernando Leiva said in an interview posted by Honduran media.

Detention of Gaspard Glanz is a Sign of France’s Increasingly Authoritarian Treatment of Journalists

By Global Voices

On 20 April 2019, video journalist Gaspard Glanz was arrested while filming a demonstration in Paris’ Place de la République. Gaspard runs the photo news agency, Taranis News, which covers social movements in France.

After his arrest, Glanz was placed in custody for “insulting a representative of law enforcement” and “participating in a group in order to provoke acts of violence and destruction.” Glanz was assigned an “S card,” indicating that he is considered to be a serious threat to national security, and may be subject to increased surveillance. He was also banned from entering Paris to cover subsequent Yellow Vest demonstrations, a measure that could leave him unable to do his work and earn a living...

What the West can learn: Yellow Vests are demanding a Cultural Revolution (8/8)

For years I have talked about “White Trash Revolutions”, and the emergence of the Yellow Vests proves that my finger is perfectly on the pulse of things: the only people publicly wearing “Yellow Vests” on the streets of Paris prior to November 17, 2018, were… garbage men.

So, imagine me, with my love of Trash Revolutions of all hues (Iran’s 1979 “Revolution of the Barefooted” amounts to the same idea)… and then the French adopted the look of trash collectors as their uniform – I couldn’t be happier!!!

But this idea is not new – even in modern 24/7 politics, genuine historical processes take years or decades to culminate. In 2016, following the election of Donald Trump in the United States, Slavov Zizek expressed the same idea offhandedly: “Sorry, White Trash is our only hope. We have to win them over.”

I could not agree more. But we must go further than just “winning over Trash” – we must let them win.

That is the essence of China’s Cultural Revolution.

DONKTUM: Restricting the Range of Consciousness

The time to defend free speech is now, and the place is wherever you stand. We must be hyper-vigilant because the outrage addicts and crypto-fascists will never stop hunting thought criminals. We must defend speech we abhor just as vehemently as the speech we like. We must not let voices be silenced and their owners disappear into the black bag of deplatforming.

Palestinians protest German attack on right to boycott Israeli apartheid

This week Palestinians marched to Germany’s diplomatic offices in the Israeli-occupied West Bank city of Ramallah and in the besieged Gaza Strip to protest the German Bundestag’s recent resolution equating the BDS – boycott, divestment and sanctions – movement for Palestinian rights with anti-Semitism.

GALLUP POLL: 43 PERCENT OF AMERICANS THINK SOCIALISM IS GOOD

Forty-three percent of Americans think socialism would be a good thing for the United States, while a slim majority — 51 percent — of those surveyed in a Gallup Poll released on May 20 think it would be a bad thing. The figures contrast markedly with a Roper/Fortune survey taken in 1942, in which 25 percent of those polled described socialism as a good thing, 40 percent as a bad thing, and 34 percent did not have an opinion.

The Time Has Come for Patriotic Dissent: Stopping War With Iran Is Essential

What if they called a war and no one came? Well, now’s the time folks. The apparent march to war with Iran represents a pivotal moment in the historical arc – the rise and fall – of our republic come empire. This potential war is so unnecessary, so irrational, that it borders on the absurd. Still, since the U.S. now fields a professional, volunteer military, few citizens have “skin in the game.” As such, they could hardly care less.

Unlike in past wars – think Vietnam – there is no longer a built in, established antiwar movement. This is unfortunate, and, dangerous for a democracy. See the US Government operates with near impunity in foreign affairs, waging global war without the consent of the people and, essentially, uninterested in what the people have to say at all. It should not be thus in a healthy republic. People should not fear their government; governments should fear their people.

Why the Tunisian military ignored orders and sided with protesters

Tunisian protesters in Sidi Bouzid on April 29 after a car crash killed 12 people, including seven female day laborers. The deaths triggered an outcry on social media, with users accusing farm owners of treating their low-paid, mainly female workforce "like cattle."

The question of why some militaries repress protesters while others side with them has taken on renewed interest. In recent weeks, militaries in Algeria and Sudan abandoned their dictators in the face of protests, while the United States has failed to get Venezuela’s to do the same. These events have led scholars to reflect on the factors that influence military defection and loyalty, such as the officers’ material interests, offers of immunity for past abuses and expectations of how other officers will respond.

French Incomes Are Below America's Poorest States... And The Protesters Know It

With the rise of the Yellow Vest Movement in France - which began last October and continues today - French activists and writers have begun to re-evaluate the state of French income and poverty. Since the movement began, articles with titles such as " Revealed: The shocking scale of poverty in France in 2018 " or " Soul-searching in France as poverty leaves one million children hungry " have become more overtly political given the context of the protests.

Typically, the government's response to accusations of widespread poverty - which, as in America, are not necessarily accurate accusations - has been to spend more money on social programs.

But here's the thing: France is already spending more than the rest of Europe when it comes to welfare programs. According to the OECD, when it comes to "public social spending" as a percentage of GDP, France tops the list at over 31 percent.

Over 300 French Journalists Denounce Police Violence Toward Yellow Vests

Over 300 media organisations, journalists, photographers, and others have signed a letter denouncing the sometimes brutal violence used against members of the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vest) movement and members of the press themselves in France.

The letter claims that press freedom in France has been suffering for years but entered a new phase following the start of the Yellow Vest protests in November of last year, Franceinfo reports.

“All these forms of violence have physical (injury), psychic (trauma) or financial (broken or confiscated equipment) consequences. We are personally and professionally denigrated and criminalized,” they wrote, and added that journalist David Dufresne had counted at least 698 cases of people being attacked or injured by police at the protests, including 85 journalists.

How Russia Became Involved with Ukraine Part 3

Despite being vastly outgunned and out-manned by Ukrainian ultra-right militias and the Ukrainian military, Eastern Ukrainians were managing to not only defend themselves but also to drive Western Ukrainian forces back. This led many to speculate as to whether or not Russia had committed troops to support the Eastern Ukrainian rebels against Kiev. Western media and the governments it speaks for began crowing about Russian troops in Ukraine and “Russian aggression.” Russia, for its part, denied any involvement beyond humanitarian shipments to civilians.

The truth is somewhat murkier, however.

While Russian involvement at this point has been completely defensive, there is also undoubtedly Russian involvement.
