Kurdish provocateurs have tried to burn a Typhoon MRAP vehicle of the Russian Military Police and a Kirpi MRAP vehicle of the Turkish Army in northern Syria. The incident happened during a joint Russian-Turkish patrol, which was conducted in the framework of the safe zone agreement reached between Ankara and Moscow.

Russian and Turkish forces once again showed an amazing restraint and avoided the use of force against the Kurdish radicals. Nonetheless, a Turkish vehicle rammed one of the cars involved in the provocations.

Social media censorship reaches new heights as Twitter permanently bans dissent

It’s an open secret. The deep state is working hand in hand with Silicon Valley social media giants like Twitter, Facebook and Google to control the flow of information. That includes suppressing, censoring and sometimes outright purging dissenting voices – all under the guise of fighting fake news and Russian propaganda.

Most recently, it was revealed that Twitter’s senior editorial executive for Europe, the Middle East and Africa is an active officer in the British Army’s 77th Brigade, a unit dedicated to online warfare and psychological operations.

In other words: he specializes in disseminating propaganda.

'Snowflake' mother blasts school for casting her daughter, 6, as the 'Inn Keeper's wife' in the nativity - saying it's 'sexist' and she 'shouldn't be identified by her relationship to a man'

A mother blasted her daughter's school for casting her six-year-old as the 'Inn Keeper's Wife' in the Nativity, claiming it is 'sexist'.

Writing on British parenting site Mumsnet, the woman told how she was offended by the name of the role because her daughter 'shouldn't be identified by her relationship to a man'.

The woman said she was 'itching' to take teachers to task over the example of 'everyday sexism' and said it needed to be 'called out'.

Revealed: Queen's most senior courtier was forced out of his job in bitter power struggle over Prince Charles's demands for extra royal duties ahead of his succession to the throne

The Queen’s most senior courtier was ‘forced out’ in a power struggle between Buckingham Palace and the Prince of Wales, it was claimed last night.

Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, suddenly announced in July that he was leaving after 15 years of royal service, loudly insisting that the monarchy was in good shape.

The Mail revealed that he was being followed by his assistant private secretary, Samantha Cohen, the third most senior courtier in the Queen’s private office, amid tensions between the main royal households and their senior staff, particularly Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.

Mark Levin: Founding Fathers had 'grave concerns' House would go 'rogue' with impeachment

At the time of America's founding, the Senate was intended to be elected by state legislators, while members of the House would be elected by popular vote of each district.

Levin said the founders thought long and hard about how to -- and in some cases whether or not to -- craft the impeachment process.

"One of the grave concerns during the debate over the impeachment clause at the Constitutional Convention ... was what you see today," he said.

Pew: Europe Hosting at Least 3.9 Million Illegal Immigrants

Europe is currently home to somewhere between 3.9 and 4.8 million illegal immigrants, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center.
“Europe has experienced a high level of immigration in recent years, driving debate about how countries should deal with immigrants when it comes to social services, security issues, deportation policies and integration efforts,” Pew notes in its latest study of the question.

“Among these recently arrived immigrants are many who live in Europe without authorization,” the article adds. “Coupled with unauthorized immigrants who were already in Europe, their numbers reach into the millions, though together they make up a small share of Europe’s total population.”

Adam Shifty Schiff involved in illegal sodomite drug den EXPOSED

There is no surprise that the Democratic party, the same party funded by Pedophile Kingpin “Pedostein” Jeffrey Epstein, is again involved in a murderous meth fueled tryst by one of their leaders. What’s disturbing though, isn’t Schiff’s homosexual activities, nor his taste for Chocolate – America is a free country and that’s why we have 50+ flavors of ice cream. What’s disturbing is that he’s living 2 lives; by day a ‘Congressman’ and a ‘family man’ and by night, drug induced party time in West Hollywood. Officially, Schiff is under investigation, see the summary from truepundit.com:

Global Accounting Firm KPMG Dumps Prince Andrew’s Mentorship Scheme After BBC Interview - Report

Photos and videos of a ‘sweaty’ Duke of York partying with young women on the French Riviera appeared to challenge his claims in a recent BBC interview that he “never really partied” and tended to avoid “public displays of affection” in a controversial defence of his friendship with deceased US financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

KPMG, one of the world’s ‘big four’ major accounting firms, has dropped its sponsorship of Pitch&Palace, a multi-million pound mentorship and networking scheme for entrepreneurs founded by Prince Andrew in 2014, amid the public scandal surrounding the Duke of York’s social life, Sky News has reported.

‘Car crash waiting to happen’: Union of UK academics says you can identify as any race & sex, gets slammed as ‘nonsensical’

Birth race and gender can be thrown out the window as far as the UK Universities and Colleges Union is concerned. The fact that you can just declare yourself black, disabled or female is not sitting well with many of its members.

In the report “UCU Position on Trans Inclusion”, the union basically suggests birth certificates will soon become a relic, should the world follow their lead. “The UCU has a long history of enabling members to self-identify, whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT or women.”

How EU foreign policy chief spent 5 years pandering to Israel

Federica Mogherini is closing her term as the European Union’s foreign policy chief in much the same way that she kicked it off: by pandering to Israel.

Shortly after taking up her post in 2014, Mogherini paid a visit to Benjamin Netanyahu. She assured the Israeli prime minister that he could “count on the European Union” to build a “new start.”

Mogherini was vague about what the “new start” would entail. Nonetheless, she has brought some degree of innovation – though not in a positive sense – to international relations.

Under her leadership, the EU uses far weaker language than previously when alluding to grave breaches of human rights.

Ghislaine Maxwell Requests Extension to Argue Against Exposing ‘Hundreds’ of Names in Epstein Docs

Attorneys for former Jeffrey Epstein partner, friend, and alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell on Monday asked a federal judge in Manhattan to grant them a one-month extension as they prepare to argue that the court should not unseal the identities of non-party persons whose names appear in documents ordered released by the court.

U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska in August ordered the release of more than 2,000 previously sealed documents from alleged Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s now-settled 2015 defamation lawsuit against Maxwell. Attorneys for Giuffre have fought to have the court unseal significantly more pages, while Maxwell’s lawyers have tried to stymie the release of new information, arguing that documents do not fall under the definition of “judicial documents,” and therefore are not subject to the presumption of access by the public.

Operation Northwoods. False Flag Attacks and Regime Change. US Intervention in India

Operation Timber Sycamore

Operation Timber Sycamore is the codename of a covert operation officially authorized by Obama in June 2013 to train and equip the anti-Assad rebellion, but which actually started in October 2011, when the CIA was operating via Britain’s MI6 to avoid having to notify Congress that it was arming the rebels in Syria. Originally, the CIA and MI6 (the British foreign intelligence service) set up a rebel arms supply network in Syria from Libya — a plan that involved intelligence agencies of 15 countries.

Intervention in India

The Pentagon project Operation Timber Sycamore that spawned ISIS was the brainchild of former CIA Director General David Petraeus. It is now coordinated by the investment fund KKR, established by Henry Kravis and whose military activities are led by Petraeus.

With their worthless fiat-Ponzi-pyramid money, the made-out-of-thin-air US dollar, they create poverty throughout the globe, then buy off the weak and poor to plot against the very leaders that have worked for years to improve their social conditions.

Why Is Thailand Buying Russian Helicopters? Are They Better than “Made in America”?

Beginning in 2011, the Kingdom of Thailand began replacing aging US helicopters not with newer US-built models, but with Russian and Italian systems instead.

This includes Russian Mi-17 medium twin-turbine transport helicopters and several AgustaWestland AW149’s and AW139’s (for transporting VIPs).

According to a January 2019 article in Jane’s 360:

The RTA [Royal Thai Army] already operates five Mi-17V-5 platforms. In March 2008 the service ordered the first three such rotorcraft from Russia, which were delivered in March 2011, followed by the remaining two in November 2015 under a contract signed in July 2014.

The article also noted that 2 more have recently arrived in Thailand, bringing the total number up to 7:

Gareth Pierce, from Birnberg Peirce solicitors, who is acting for Assange, told the Judge that she wanted to put on record that a "major impediment is Mr Assange’s ability to access the materials he need to prepare his case.”

Supreme Court rules gun maker may be held responsible for death of children in mass shooting, even though VACCINE makers have zero liability

In response to liberal anti-gun hysteria, the United States Supreme Court has decided to allow a lawsuit filed by the alleged victims of the Sandy Hook massacre to move forward in suing Remington Arms Co., the manufacturer of the firearms supposedly used by Adam Lanza to commit mass murder.

Rejecting arguments made by Remington that the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 effectively shields the company from liability in the event that its products are misused, the Supreme Court has declined to comment on the matter, which means that the case has been given the green light to proceed.

Unlike the vaccine industry, which is fully protected against all liability involving injuries and deaths caused by vaccines, Remington could soon face legal repercussions simply for selling firearms to the American public.

Holocaust Training for American Police

Jewish groups in the United States are adept at creating mechanisms that benefit themselves and also frequently Israel at the expense of the American taxpayer. The proliferating holocaust museums are a good example, sometimes built by private donations but then paid for and operated by the local government. The national holocaust museum in Washington is, for example, supported by the taxpayer to the tune of $54 million per year. When one considers that the so-called holocaust occurred nearly eighty years ago and did not involve the United States at all, it is a remarkable achievement to so memorialize the claimed uniqueness of Jewish suffering, which then is used to justify other abuses and excuse Israel’s ongoing war crimes.

When Did Ukraine Become a 'Critical Ally'?

“One would think, listening to this,” writes Barbara Boland, the American Conservative columnist, “that the U.S. had always provided arms to Ukraine, and that Ukraine has relied on this aid for years. But this is untrue and the Washington blob knows this.”

Indeed, Ukraine has never been a NATO ally or a “critical ally.”

Three decades ago, George H.W. Bush implored Ukraine not to set out on a course of “suicidal nationalism” by declaring independence from the Russian Federation. Despite constant pressure from Sen. John McCain and our neocons to bring Ukraine into NATO, wiser heads on both sides of the Atlantic rejected the idea.

Why? Because the “territorial integrity and sovereignty” of Ukraine is not now and has never been a vital interest of ours that would justify a U.S. war with a nuclear-armed Russia.

UK Failure in Iraq and Afghanistan Highlighted by War Crime Claims

The alleged bid by the British government and army to close down investigations into torture and murder in Iraq and Afghanistan appears to be the latest aspect of a widespread desire in in the UK to forget all about these failed wars.

Joining the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 is commonly blamed on Tony Bair, but there is little interest in the desperate situation into which British troops were plunged post-invasion, first in southern Iraq and then, three years later, in Helmand province in Afghanistan.

The gravity of the miscalculations in each case is not in doubt. Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, the British ambassador in Kabul at the time, wrote in his memoirs that the worst mistake made by the Foreign Office in the previous 30 years was the invasion of Iraq, and the second worst was “its enthusiastic endorsement of Britain’s half-baked effort to occupy Helmand in 2006”.

North Korea no longer interested in 'useless' meetings with US, says senior minister

A statement from North Korean Foreign Ministry adviser Kim Kye Gwan, posted by state news agency, KCNA, said: "I interpreted President Trump's tweet on the 17th to signify a new DPRK-US summit" but "we are no longer interested in these meetings that are useless to us."

Kim suggested that the US is trying to portray "advancement in Korean Peninsula issue" but that it was a delay tactic.

Wall Street Journal investigation confirms Google operates censorship blacklist

An investigation by the Wall Street Journal has confirmed many of the central allegations made by the World Socialist Web Site in 2017 regarding Google’s censorship of the internet.

In an extensive article published Friday, the Journal concludes that, contrary to Google’s repeated assertions, the company maintains blacklists of individual websites and intervenes directly to manipulate individual search results.

On July 27, 2017, the World Socialist Web Site reported that changes to Google’s search algorithm, internally dubbed “Project Owl,” had drastically reduced search traffic to left-wing, antiwar and progressive websites.

The WSWS based its assertions on Google’s public declarations that it was seeking to “surface more authoritative content” and demote “alternative viewpoint[s],” as well as detailed data from the WSWS’s analytics systems and data provided by other websites and publicly available web and search traffic estimators.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the move when speaking at the event. The statement has sparked an intense debate in the media and online. Many people have not been able to comprehend this charitable act, who believe it was too generous and pointless. This gesture indicates that the Russians, who have been keeping an eye on China, are looking to renew relations with countries on the African continent.

Nov 19 06:37


In a major, if entirely expected, complete reversal of Obama-era policy on the Middle East, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Monday the Trump administration is reversing the official US stance on the illegality of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan,” Pompeo said in reference to Reagan’s view that settlements were not inherently illegal. “The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law,” Pompeo said.

“The Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach towards Israeli settlements. U.S. public statements on settlement activities in the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary of State Pompeo, are you flipping kidding me?!?

By this "logic", you have started down the "slippery, bloody slope" which will soon necessitate your supporting the following:

1. " Palestine never existed."
2. "All Palestinians who protest peacefully should be shot on sight, including infants and toddlers."
3. Palestinian children should be indefinitely jailed, and if necessary, tortured for "information" on the adults in their family and neighborhood who have said, or done anything, which was anti-Israel in nature, and forced to sign confessions in a language they can neither read, write, nor speak (Hebrew).

As you are well aware, all of these practices have been painstakingly documented to exist.

Also, as you are well aware, the way in which these settlements have been engineered, translates as to a total impossibility for there to be a contiguous Palestinian state, as documented by the following article in January of this year, from the Foundation for Middle East Peace:: Settlement Report: January 11, 2019

The article goes on to state: "Israeli officials have argued that the now-open road should resolve international objections to building the E-1 settlement, since it preserves “transportational continuity” by providing a route for Palestinians to travel between between the northern and southern parts of the West Bank, as a substitute for territorial contiguity of a future Palestinian state).

When construction on the road resumed in 2017 after being stalled for a long period, Peace Now explained:

“If the road will be completed…Israel will be able to argue that Israeli construction in the area does not separate the West Bank because there is a transportation route for Palestinians. This argument, of course, is baseless because a thin line of road that connects separated territorial sections (creating ‘transportational continuity’) does not meet the need for the territorial contiguity essential for the development of East Jerusalem and the Palestinian metropolis. Without these territories, a viable independent Palestinian state cannot be built and prosper, and this could mean the death of the two-state solution.”

Secretary of State Pompeo, I very politely, and gently, urge you to step back from this precipice where you are taking the world, sir; and that precipice is a world war, the outcome of which cannot be pre-determined, and may destroy life on earth as we have known it.

Right-wing media figures demand Donald Trump pardon Roger Stone following guilty verdict

On November 15, Trump loyalist Roger Stone was convicted in federal court on seven counts, including charges of lying to Congress and witness tampering. Now, right-wing and far-right media figures are urging President Donald Trump to pardon Stone.

Stone was found guilty on charges related to his September 2017 testimony to the House Intelligence Committee investigating Russian interference during the 2016 election, specifically regarding WikiLeaks’ release of hacked Democratic National Committee emails.

In response to the verdict, right-wing and far-right media figures are now calling on Trump to pardon Stone. Stone himself has pleaded with Trump to pardon him through a message sent to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. (Jones, in turn, has responded to the verdict by threatening to out the jury in the Stone trial.)
