New Pentagon training refers to protesters, journalists as 'adversaries'

A new mandatory Pentagon training course aimed at preventing leaks refers to protesters and journalists as "adversaries" in a fictional scenario designed to teach Defense Department personnel how to better protect sensitive information.

The new course was recently launched as part of Defense Secretary Mark Esper's effort to improve "operational security," or OPSEC, and clamp down on leaks. The training materials are public and include a video message from Esper, as well as a July 20 memo outlining his concerns about operational security and directing all DoD personnel — military, civilian and on-site contractors — to take the course within the next 60 days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Secretary Esper, allow me to introduce myself; I am Claire Karst Rivero, a published Christian composer, and a Christian pacifist activist.

I have advocated, peacefully and rationally, for many years, for a US government which understands that there are many tools in its "arsenal" to get what it wants, geopolitically, through moral, responsible, and hard-won negotiations.

I would never, knowingly, use any information which could compromise the government of the country of my birth and my nationality.

That being said, sir, I graduated from high school at the height of the Vietnam War, and at that point, understood the depths to which the Federal government would lie to me, and my brother and sister Americans, to appear to be winning a war which was, according to the Pentagon Papers, unwinnable.

Unfortunately, sir, the lies still continue, regarding countries like Iran, the only "crime" of which they have been tried and convicted in the court of hysterically illogical US public opinion, was throwing out the US puppet, the Shah, and replacing him with an Islamic theocracy.

And of course, Secretary Esper, this country HATES theocracies... unless, of course, the country creating that theocracy is the State of Israel, which did this in July of 2018.

Israel Declares Itself 'Jewish State,' Jerusalem as Eternal Capital

I would like to politely remind you that while Israel does NOT have a constitution, Iran does. And that constitution means that although I cannot celebrate Communion at a Christian, English-speaking church in Iran, I can worship with that faith community.

We are constantly told that we have "enemies everywhere", particularly in Russia, South America, Iran, and China. But I would logically suggest, sir, that it has been US foreign policy, which has driven people critical of US foreign policy together as a matter of necessity and survival.

It is utterly no accident, Secretary Esper, looking at US sanctions against countries like Venezuela and Iran, that these countries are working together to circumvent those sanctions as best they can.

Sir, I would like to assure you that I am NOT your enemy; I'm just a 71 year old blogger, weighing in at about 112 pounds soaking wet, who believes that fact, truth, logic, and moral sense should be driving this country's foreign policy; your true enemy... is those decisions taken by this administration which do not honor fact, truth, logic, and moral sense.

KENNEDY JR. WARNS PARENTS ABOUT DANGER OF USING LARGELY-UNTESTED COVID VACCINES ON KIDS

SOURCE: MARTIN BERGER VIA GLOBALRESEARCH
Environmental lawyer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. warned Americans on Thursday to be cautious about any new coronavirus vaccine, pointing out that key parts of testing are being skipped.

“The Moderna vaccine, which is the lead candidate, skipped the animal testing altogether,” Kennedy said during an online debate on mandatory vaccinations with renowned Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz. The debate was aired by Valuetainment and moderated by Patrick Bet-David.

Kennedy is part of a political family, being the son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy. Both were murdered in the 1960s.

Another aspect of testing was equally unsatisfying, Kennedy said. The Moderna vaccine was tested “on 45 people. They had a high-dose group of 15 people, a medium-dose group of 15 people, and a low growth group of 15 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will I take such a vaccine willingly?!?

The short answer is, "HELL, no!!!!"

This is not about health; it is about obscene profits, and who ultimately profits from the deployment of such a vaccine which has been allowed to skip the most normal of protocols.

Protests Erupt Across Country; Black Militia Member Accidentally Shoots Comrades In Park

Update (21:30 ET): Saturday BLM protests unfolded across the country on Saturday, with tensions flaring in major cities including Portland, Seattle, Chicago and Louisville, Kentucky.

In Seattle, the police department - which on Friday announced that they would effectively not be enforcing the law due to a City Council ban on the use of non-lethal crowd control measures - declared a riot, citing "ongoing damage and public safety risks," according to USA Today. 16 protesters were arrested by Seattle PD for assaulting officers, obstruction and failure to disperse. One officer was hospitalized with a leg injury caused by an explosive, while the crowd launched mortars and rocks at the police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can no longer recognise the country into which I was born; this is no longer about peaceful protest, but rioting, in order to inflict harm, pure and simple.

Law enforcement use of deadly force: In-depth analysis

(INTELLIHUB) — These days we hear a lot about law enforcement personnel and the use of unjustified force. There are a lot of variables involved, so who is in the right in these cases?

For starters, each scenario must be examined on a case-by-case basis. That includes the history and profiles of the individuals involved.

A number of names come to mind when force, questionable or otherwise, has been used. LaVoy Finicum, Eric Garner and Michael Brown are probably some of the most well-known cases in point.

In each of these circumstances, different factors need to be examined.

Did any of the civilian subjects have a criminal record, a record of violent crime or violence? Were they armed during the utilization of force against them and did they pose an immediate threat to anyone — either law enforcement or others in the immediate vicinity during their final moments?

Suspect Who Killed Son Of Epstein-Linked Judge Identified

Citing federal law enforcement sources, the NY Post has just published more details about the deceased suspect in an attack that left the son of a judge overseeing a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank involving the bank's failure to hold Epstein accountable.

Though some reports claim the suspect actually intended to target Judge Salas's husband, it appears initial reports that the suspect was a lawyer who had once argued a case before the judge have been confirmed.

Suspect Who Allegedly Shot Family of Judge Salas 'Commits Suicide'; Worked For Kroll Associates

Roy Den Hollander's bio says he worked for Jules Kroll's Kroll Associates in Moscow, Russia during 1999-2000 and "managed and upgraded Kroll's delivery of intelligence and security in the former Soviet Union."

The Washington Post reported in 1996 that French authorities believed Kroll's Paris operation "was a CIA front."

Kroll was also in charge of security for the World Trade Center on September 11th.

A board member of billionaire Les Wexner's company reportedly hired Kroll in the past to investigate Jeffrey Epstein (Wexner financed Jeffrey Epstein).

73-Year-Old Anti-Masker Killed By Police After Driving his Car Into Grocery Store, Fleeing

A 73-year-old Canadian man was reportedly asked by a 'Valu-Mart' grocery store clerk to wear a face mask, became angry, and left the store, but not before crashing his car into the store. Police then briefly pursued his vehicle but opted to get his license plate then went to his house, where he was killed by two officers.

President Kennedy’s Assassination: Reporter Killed

Craig Roberts was a Marine Corps sniper. When he first saw the window from which Lee Harvey Oswald was supposed to have shot President Kennedy, he knew immediately that everything he had been told about the assassination was a lie. He called his friend, Carlos Hathcock, who had the highest bounty set by the Viet Cong of any American sniper in Vietnam. When told that Roberts had determined Oswald could never have shot the President from that spot in the schoolbook depository, Hathcock not only agreed but said his team of sniper instructors at Quantico had tried more than once to replicate the kill shot. But not even best Marine Corps snipers could make the shot. Craig Roberts wrote a book, Kill Zone: A Sniper Looks at Dealey Plaza.

‘Faced with an assassination similar to Soleimani’s, West would declare war’

A UN special rapporteur, who has raised a firestorm by condemning the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, has once again denounced the United States' sheer disregard for international law.

“It is just violation of every single principle not only governing international law, but governing international relations,” Agnes Callamard, United Nations special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, told al-Mayadeen in remarks aired on Sunday.

General Soleimani, the former commander of the Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), was assassinated in a US airstrike at Baghdad airport on January 3, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), and a number of their companions.

UN: 700 Die In Syrian Camp For ISIS Families - "Explosive" Situation For Renewed Terrorism

ISIS has long been out of international media headlines, but sprawling refugee camps full of what are said to be Islamic State families and sympathizers remain in eastern Syria.

Days ago the United Nations issued an alarming report detailing that the some 70,000 mostly women, children, and elderly connected to ISIS at the al-Hol and Roj camps remain in "very dire conditions".

The UN counterterrorism chief Vladimir Voronkov announced late last week that 700 people "recently" died in the two camps, according to information his office had received.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; is this article "telegraphing" the return of ISIS, which was trained, funded, and armed by none other than the good old USA?!?

Exclusive: RN goes undercover at New York hospital, discovers massive COVID-19 fraud

(INTELLIHUB) — Iraqi Freedom combat veteran and registered nurse Erin Olszewski appeared on The Shepard Ambellas Show on Friday where she revealed how COVID-19 is a massive top-down scam in which hospitals and medical workers are being paid big bucks to essentially remain silent about the true nature of what is really going on behind the scenes in the medical industry.

The registered nurse explained to Shep and his audience how medical industry higher-ups and personnel often view patients as “disposable humans” and said that it only took her one twelve-hour shift at New York’s Elmhurst Hospital to realized that the patients were not dying of COVID.

“I can not sit here and be a part of this and watch this happen,” she said bravely, reflecting on her decision to blow the whistle. “It literally took me a shift, a 12-hour shift, to realize that these patients were not dying from COVID.”

Official: Feds feared Epstein confidant might kill herself

Federal officials were so worried Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime confidant Ghislaine Maxwell might take her own life after her arrest that they took away her clothes and bedsheets and made her wear paper attire while in custody, an official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The steps to ensure Maxwell’s safety while she’s locked up at a federal jail in New York City extend far beyond the measures federal officials took when they first arrested her in New Hampshire last week.

The Justice Department has added extra security precautions and placed federal officials outside the Bureau of Prisons in charge of ensuring there is adequate protection for Maxwell. That’s to help prevent other inmates from harming her and to stop her from harming herself, the official said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They are sure telegraphing "suicide."

US’ Illegal Killing of Soleimani ‘Same Deal’ as Past Wars Over ‘Sphere of Influence’ - Journo

In a recent report, a United Nations expert found the January killing of Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani by a US drone strike was against international law. One journalist told Sputnik the killing fit a long pattern of the US destroying places it cannot control, which is linked to the proliferation of poverty in the US.

Kei Pritsker, a journalist with BreakThrough News, told Radio Sputnik’s Political Misfits Tuesday that “for most of US history, we’ve just attacked countries purely out of our interest to extend our sphere of influence for power and take out governments we don’t like, and it’s really the same deal with Qasem Soleimani.”

Did Maxwell 'Kill Herself' By Getting Arrested?

Ghislaine Maxwell was caught in New Hampshire. Jeffrey Epstein’s partner-in-crime is now in U.S. custody in the darkest of all places, the Southern District of New York (SDNY).

The first thing on everyone’s mind should be, “Which faction actually has her and how long will she survive?”

Ghislaine Maxwell "Knows Everything" And "Will Be Naming Names", Former Epstein Associate Says

Assuming that Ghislaine Maxwell doesn't wind up with the means to kill herself in her jail cell, and assuming those who are supposed to be watching her 24 hours a day won't be taking any well-timed coffee breaks, Maxwell will be "naming names" and "fully cooperating" with the FBI according to a former associate of Jeffrey Epstein, according The Daily Mail.

Epstein's former employer Steven Hoffenberg said that Maxwell "knows everything" and will "totally co-operate".

In addition, Prince Andrew, who has been nudged further and further toward the center of the Epstein/Maxwell controversy, is "among those very worried" about what she might reveal, the report says. "She's going to cooperate and be very important. Andrew is definitely, definitely concerned," Hoffenberg said.

Powerful men are scared about what Ghislaine Maxwell will say

Jeffrey Epstein’s victims have another shot at justice. Here’s hoping they get it.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged child sex trafficker and abuser in league with Epstein, was finally arrested Thursday morning.

Her guilt, in the court of public opinion, isn’t in question.

The only question is: Will the federal government keep Maxwell alive to stand trial?

Welcome To The New (Pathologized) Totalitarianism

Authored (satirically) by CJ Hopkins via ConsentFactory.org,

It was always going to come to this... mobs of hysterical, hate-drunk brownshirts hunting down people not wearing masks and trying to get them fired from their jobs, “no mask, no service” signs outside stores, security staff stopping the mask-less from entering, paranoid pod people pointing and shrieking at the sight of mask-less shoppers in their midst, goon squads viciously attacking and arresting them …

Welcome to the Brave New Normal.

I guess monitoring ankle bracelets are coming next, possibly introduced in pre-school, with the prop-wars of "keeping you kids safe" in school being the new mantra here.

MASSIVE explosions after ‘Israeli jets’ strike army bases in central Syria

Several military bases in central and southern Syria have been targeted by air attacks that Damascus has blamed on Israel, Syrian state media have reported. Videos on social media show massive explosions illuminating the night.
Israel targeted several locations in Salamiyah and Saburah just before 1 am on Wednesday, the Syrian army said, adding that its air defenses shot down “a large number” of hostile missiles but that some struck their targets and inflicted “limited material damage.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how long Russia's Putin is going to put up with this nonsense.

Chokehold on Diplomat Exposes Israel’s Special Type of Apartheid

An Israeli diplomat filed a complaint last week with police after he was pulled to the ground in Jerusalem by four security guards, who knelt on his neck for five minutes as he cried out: “I can’t breathe.”

There are obvious echoes of the treatment of George Floyd, an African-American killed by police in Minneapolis last month. His death triggered mass protests against police brutality and reinvigorated the Black Lives Matter movement. The incident in Jerusalem, by contrast, attracted only minor attention – even in Israel.

An assault by Israeli security officials on a diplomat sounds like an aberration – a peculiar case of mistaken identity – quite unlike an established pattern of police violence against poor black communities in the US. But that impression would be wrong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When someone like South Africa's Bishop Desmond Tutu calls what Israelis do to the Palestinians "apartheid", you can very safely bet that he has a pretty good idea of what he is talking about!!

As Coronavirus Rips Through Yemen, Saudi Bombs Continue to Fall

With an already shattered medical infrastructure due to the five-year US-Saudi siege, Covid-19 has rapidly spread through Yemen. The Arab country lacks the basic necessities for preventative measures like clean water, and a population facing malnourishment is especially vulnerable to the disease. A recent uptick in Saudi bombing might put a country already on the brink of collapse over the edge.

Last week, Saudi warplanes pounded Yemen’s capital Sanaa, in what residents called the worst airstrikes they have seen since the first years of the war. Seventy-seven airstrikes hit several provinces in north Yemen within 24 hours. According to the Houthi’s health ministry and NGOs on the ground, one of the strikes hit a car traveling in the Sadaa province and killed 13 civilians, including four children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Killing civilians, particularly civilian kids; that's what we, with our war-crimes enabled and sanctified by the US government, DO!!" - official Saudi souse.

The Saudi government has the best PR money can buy, and they have to buy it, because their human rights record, both at home and abroad, is simply so execrable as to cause the most callous of human hearts to faint dead away from its excesses, both at home and abroad.

The assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, in the Saudi embassy in Turkey, was just the tip of the proverbial ice berg here.Audio Offers Gruesome Details of Jamal Khashoggi Killing, Turkish Official Says

And Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the guy who most probably ordered this hit, is one of President Trump's "BFFs" in the Middle East?!?

One has to wonder if one of the Prince's "attractive qualities" to this President, is that he can literally get away with murder... and never have to say he's sorry.

Mr. President, you really may want to think a little more carefully about with whom you align, internationally; because right now, the US is still enabling and abetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen: I know this, as do millions of other
Americans, particularly those who lived through the horror which was the war against Vietnam.

Second Shooting In Seattle's CHOP-Zone Leaves One In Critical Condition

Via The Epoch Times,

One person was wounded in what was the second shooting in Seattle’s protest zone in less than 48 hours, police said.

The shooting happened late Sunday night in the area near Seattle’s downtown that is known as CHOP, for “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest,” police tweeted, adding that one person was at a hospital with a gunshot wound.

The person arrived in a private vehicle and was in serious condition, Harborview Medical Center spokesperson Susan Gregg said in a statement.

The zone evolved after weeks of protests in the city over police brutality and racism, sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, a black man, in Minneapolis.

The Sunday shooting followed a pre-dawn shooting on Saturday in a park within the zone that left a 19-year-old man dead and a 33-year-old man critically injured. The suspect or suspects in that first shooting fled the scene, and no arrests had been made as of Sunday, Detective Mark Jamieson had said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how long her Grand Ineptitude, Seattle's Mayor Jenny Durkan, will allow this madness to continue, and how many more of Seattle's citizens will have to die, before she demonstrates the slightest bit of spine here.

Peaceful demonstrations leading to massive police reform?!? Absolutely.

5 FACTS BBC’S “THE SALISBURY POISONINGS” FORGOT TO MENTION

The BBC’s new drama “The Salisbury Poisonings” concluded over the weekend. A three-part story “based on actual events”, claiming to tell the story of the alleged poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury in 2018. It’s exactly what you’d expect. Schlocky tat. Poorly researched, badly written and woefully factually inaccurate.

Epstein Case: Documentaries Won't Touch Tales Of Intel Ties

Authored by Elizabeth Vos via ConsortiumNews.com,

Investigation Discovery premiered a three-hour special, “Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?” on May 31, the first segment in a three-part series, that focused on Epstein’s August 2019 death in federal custody. The series addresses Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, his links with billionaire Leslie Wexner, founder of the Victoria Secrets clothing line, and others, as well as the non-prosecution deal he was given.

The special followed on the heels of Netflix’s release of “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” a mini-series that draws on a book of the same name by James Patterson.

Neither documentary however deals at all with Epstein’s suspected ties to the world of intelligence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When specials like this are churned out, very rarely do they look at the in-depth questions which need to be asked, and answered, but misdirect the viewing public by focusing on the cheesy/sleazy side of the subject's character.

Chinese Forces Kill 3 Indian Troops During First Deadly Border Clash In Nearly 50 Years

Following days of escalating tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, Indian Army officials confirmed that three troops - an officer and two soldiers, to be more precise - had been gunned down by Chinese forces during a "violent faceoff" in Galwan Valley in the Ladakh region, which rests along the country's border with China on Monday night.

A statement from the Indian Army says both sides were meeting to diffuse tensions building up on the border in the last several weeks. Other reports indicate the soldiers weren't shot but had been killed during a rock-throwing melee reminiscent of another border incident back in May, where both sides reported injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will a couple of "adults in the room" with some geopolitical integrity left, please start working the phones between New Dehli and Beijing, and get the leadership of these two countries to "cool it"?!?

Two nuclear armed neighbors on the cusp of war is double-plus ungood for the whole world-right now, and China has a defense/trade pact with Pakistan China's Belt and Road plan in Pakistan takes a Distinctly Military Turnwhich could mean if things here go "mammary glands vertical", we have China and Pakistan fighting against India, which is under treaty with the US *(from the Obama Administration) to have access to 99% of US defense technology. India will have access to 99% US defense technology, says Obama Official

This is utterly NOT headed in a good direction, and unfortunately, this Administration has completely bungled its relations with almost every country in the world, save Israel.

‘Community policing’ is a trick – new enforcers for the same oppressors, not a dismantling of tyranny

As the massive anti-police-brutality protests sweeping the US are diverted into calls to “defund the police” and to replace them with community-based enforcers, Americans would be wise to keep an eye on “who benefits.”

But, if nothing else, the George Floyd killing has reminded Americans that we don’t have a functioning system. US police kill an average of 1,000 civilians every year, with just one percent of those killings leading to an indictment – never mind a conviction. Cops typically receive many more hours of training in target practice than in conflict de-escalation.

Yet many countries manage to operate police forces that maintain a semblance of order without racking up a four-digit body count every year. There are plenty of reform strategies US police forces could adopt, starting with holding cops accountable to the same laws as citizens (i.e. murder and theft are illegal).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping (and as a Christian, praying) that President Trump's soon-forthcoming Executive Order on Police Reform is intelligently crafted to focus on conflict de-escalation, but balanced with the ability to deal with the violent, repeat offenders in a more intelligent way than does the US penal system allow for at this point in time.

I have a "hug and a punch" relationship with the documentaries of Michael Moore, (and my "punches" are all soft taps on the shoulder!), but he did a brilliant piece called "Where to Invade Next?", where he looks at how other cultures are solving their problems perhaps more intelligently than are their American cousins.

One of the places he visited was a Norwegian prison, where the male population lived in dorms, actually got something approximating some education and drug counseling; and where visits with family were encouraged.

The end result was far less recidivism than we have here in the US, and people tended to stay out of trouble better than did their American counterparts.

‘Proud to be one of the ‘bad actors’ on RT,’ says Rose McGowan after DHS report smearing channel for coverage of BLM protests

American actress Rose McGowan said she is “proud” to be one of the so-called “bad actors” appearing on RT after the US Department of Homeland Security criticized the channel for covering protests over George Floyd's death.
In a bulletin reported this week, the DHS accused Russia, China and Iran of using state-owned media to “amplify criticism” of the US in relation to Floyd's death in May. The unarmed black man died at the hands of a police officer who kneeled on his neck for nine minutes ignoring his pleas for life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But what if some of this coverage is actually reasonable, and just?!?

It would appear to me that DHS has some fundamentally more important things to do in this country..... perhaps like, peacefully, taking back the autonomous zone in Seattle, known now by the acronym CHAZ, if that is possible?!?

How long is it's mayor willing to allow what is happening to continue, and at what point will the devolution here be made to stop?!?

That question right now.... is anyone's guess.

UPDATE: this is now called "Capitol Hill Occupied Protests, or CHOP for short. (Sigh; either way, these protestors are looking at a world of hurt, if they believe this is going to be allowed to become a permanent, "no-go" encampment zone.)

Media Blackout: The Federal Court Case To End Water Fluoridation!

By Spiro Skouras

As we are inundated with headlines about violent riots and looting being passed off as mostly peaceful protests, or how the dreaded virus continues to spread in communities around the world, there is another story taking place which directly affects hundreds of millions of people globally that is being blacked out by the mainstream corporate media.

Unlike the aforementioned crises which are being cited as the justification for the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset, this public health crisis actually has a rather simple solution: to end water fluoridation by no longer adding the toxic substance to the nation’s water supply.

US Troops in Colombia “Associate with Illegal Groups”, Killing Farmers, Seek to “Spark a War with Venezuela”

Colombian senators on Wednesday said that U.S. troops that arrived in the South American country in early June are allowed to associate with illegal groups and seek an eventual international confrontation.

The Democratic Congressman Ivan Cepeda revealed that the current manuals of the U.S. special forces (SFAB) that arrived in Colombia “mention the function of advising non-governmental militias and illegal partners.”

“We can end up like Libya, a destroyed state that has become a field for the multinational oil companies,” the opposition congressman added.

The arrival of U.S. military personnel in the country without the consent of Congress demonstrates the responsibility of the government of Ivan Duque in that regard.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh)... when a failed "cou-cou-ca-CHOO!" goes mammary glands vertical, what's a US government to do, as happened recently with Venezuela?!?

Why, send in special forces to Columbia without Congressional oversight or approval, THAT'S WHAT!!

TRUMP TO ISSUE EXECUTIVE ORDER ON POLICE REFORM

SOURCE: THE EPOCH TIMES
“We’re working to finalize an executive order that will encourage police departments nationwide to meet the most current professional standards for the use of force, including tactics for de-escalation,” Trump said at a roundtable with law enforcement, faith leaders, and small business owners at Gateway Church in Dallas.

“Also, we’ll encourage pilot programs that allow social workers to join certain law enforcement officers so that they work together,” he said.

“We’ll take care of our police. We’re not defunding police—if anything, we’re going the other route. We’re going to make sure our police are well trained, perfectly trained, [and that] they have the best equipment,” the president continued, to applause.

Trump later clarified the idea of encouraging police departments to “meet the most current professional standards of force.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if systemic reform will ever, actually, find its way to those police departments and units with problems, due to the intractability of police unions, who tend to double down, even when their leadership knows that what was done by their members, was absolutely NOT by the book.

Canada Indigenous groups demand probe after police kill woman

Moore, 26, was shot dead on Thursday by a police officer in Edmundston, in the eastern province of New Brunswick. A relative had called police to check Moore's health.

Edmundston police said the woman had threatened the officer with a knife. According to the family, the officer fired five times to subdue her.

Moore's "tragic killing ... during a wellness check has vividly shown all Canadians that Indigenous peoples in Canada continue to face a very different set of circumstances when interacting with the policing and justice systems in Canada", said CPA National Chief Robert Bertrand.

'Should never happen'
While officials have opened a probe into Moore's death, the national chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), Perry Bellegarde, said the shooting must be investigated by an impartial third party to determine why lethal force was used and whether race was a factor in the officer's response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Canada is no stranger to indigenous people getting treated badly.

SADISTIC RIOT COPS SHOOT INNOCENT WHEELCHAIR-BOUND HOMELESS MAN IN THE HEAD

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST
(Support Free Thought) -

It is important to point out that many of the arrests we are seeing involve violations of unconstitutional curfews which have been enforced across the nation — not actual crimes. When citizens refuse to be silenced and do not go home when told they have to, police begin a process known as kettling which provokes violence by trapping protesters in a fight or flight type situation.

Essentially, people who stay out past the curfew are being kettled by cops who do not allow them to leave and then are tear gassed, pepper sprayed, beaten with batons, and then arrested.

This tactic is highly controversial because multiple instances have captured cops abusing people who are innocent, including the press, and bystanders who are not even participating in the protests — like innocent homeless people in wheelchairs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WHAT THE FLIP WAS LAPD THINKING?!?

Shooting a homeless guy imprisoned in a wheelchair?!?

UNDER FBI ORDERS, FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE REMOVED AMERICAN HERALD TRIBUNE, AN ALTERNATIVE SITE THAT PUBLISHES US AND EUROPEAN WRITERS CRITICAL OF US FOREIGN POLICY. THE BUREAU’S JUSTIFICATION FOR THE REMOVAL WAS DUBIOUS, AND IT SETS A TROUBLING PRECEDENT FOR OTHER CRITICAL OUTLETS.

BY GARETH PORTER
The FBI has publicly justified its suppression of dissenting online views about US foreign policy if a media outlet can be somehow linked to one of its adversaries. The Bureau’s justification followed a series of instances in which Silicon Valley social media platforms banned accounts following consultations with the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WRH does not communicate on Facebook Instagram, or Twitter, because of the very clear understanding that these strictures have been well in place for quite some time now. They cannot deplatform us, because we are not attempting to communicate there.

And unfortunately, the real threat to US national security right now... comes from the US government itself, in both national and international policies, which is a very sad commentary to have to make at this point on the 21st century.

PENTAGON WAR GAME INCLUDES SCENARIO FOR MILITARY RESPONSE TO DOMESTIC GEN Z REBELLION

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped up on the Pentagon’s radar.

Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always comforting to understand the degree to which the US military "has the backs": of the already monied, and are more than ready to collectively "relieve themselves" on those whose futures have been already been squandered for the rest of us.

GEORGE FLOYD DEATH : Minneapolis police rendered 44 people unconscious with neck restraints in five yearsSeveral police experts said that number appears to be unusually high. "By using this tactic, it's a self-fulfilling tragedy," said one.

Since the beginning of 2015, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department have rendered people unconscious with neck restraints 44 times, according to an NBC News analysis of police records. Several police experts said that number appears to be unusually high.

Minneapolis police used neck restraints at least 237 times during that span, and in 16 percent of the incidents the suspects and other individuals lost consciousness, the department's use-of-force records show. A lack of publicly available use-of-force data from other departments makes it difficult to compare Minneapolis to other cities of the same or any size.

Police define neck restraints as when an officer uses an arm or leg to compress someone's neck without directly pressuring the airway. On May 25, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on the neck of a prone and handcuffed George Floyd for eight minutes — including nearly three minutes after he had stopped breathing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

HOLY CRUD, and this was perfectly legal for these officers to do in this state?!?

THE GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS – 20 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

SOURCE: OFF-GUARDIAN
As the situation deteriorates all across the nation, we need to stop and ask how we got here.

Racial politics in America are a simmering pot waiting to boil over, they have been for decades. This is only exacerbated as the poverty created by the (totally unnecessary) lockdown starts to hit home.

As the weather gets hot, and jobs dry up and prices skyrocket and the small businesses close…people will get tense. They will get angry.

This is dry tinder which can burst into flames at any moment.

All it took was a spark.

Now the protesters swarm cities all across America, as windows are smashed, shops looted and public buildings set afire. Civilians are being maced and tasered and the rubber bullets are flying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never, in my life, been more grateful for living in a small, rural part of the country than I am now, here in Indiana.

But my heart goes out for innocent people who are getting badly physically hurt out there, and businesses, built over decades by minority entrepreneurs, and others, going up in smoke right now.

Trump Administration Plans $500 Million Arms Sale to Saudi Arabia: Move would give Raytheon licenses to make bombs in Saudi Arabia

The Trump Administration has sent a notification to Congress confirming plans to sell $500 million in weapons to Saudi Arabia in an upcoming round of sales. The plan would include sales of Paveway bombs to the Saudis, and licenses to Raytheon to let them manufacture the bombs directly in Saudi Arabia.

These bombs are part of a 2019 deal in which the Saudis intend to buy 60,000 precision munitions. The deal has continued to face heavy resistance in Congress, in no small part because the Saudis have been committing war crimes with these US-made arms.

Concerns about US culpability in having provided these arms were compounded with the Saudi assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which fueled a substantial political backlash. So far, the Trump Administration has resisted letting Congress block any sales, but each announcement starts the battle anew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the Saudi approach in Yemen is assassinating all native Yemenites, particularly women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, so they can own the country.

Mr. President, by signing off on this deal, you are telling the world that you proudly are signing off on Saudi war crimes, courtesy of US enabling; what the hell kind of message do you think this is sending to the world?!?

Are you so "sheltered" by your toadying advisors, that you don't know this is precisely what the Saudi military will do with these munitions?!?

Mr. President, you have both a world of hurt to try to help to heal, both societally and economically, to the country you alledge you actually govern; so can you please attempt to do some positive governing to resolve those issues, before you treat your weapons developers/massive contributors to yet another windfall in weapons profits?!?

Or do you really relish the title of"Merchant of Death in Chief"?!?

NYC Mayor De Blasio's Daughter Arrested At Protest; Fire Next To White House; California Hit With Looting, Violence

Update (2150ET): The daughter of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Chiara de Blasio, was arrested at a Saturday night protest in Manhattan, according to the New York Post.

Chiara de Blasio, 25, was taken into custody around 10:30 p.m. after cops declared an unlawful assembly at 12th Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, the sources said.

“That was a real hotspot, police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops. There were thousands of people in that area at that time,” the source said.

She gave 181 East End Avenue as her address, otherwise known as Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s Upper East Side residence. -New York Post

The very next day, de Blasio warned that "Change is coming in this city."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, Mike and I were watching two screens in our living room; on the Ipad, the feed from Spacex, documenting the docking of the Dragon spacecraft and the ISS. On the large-screen TV, the Fox news coverage of these riots, which have gone national in scope.

The contrast, between the incredible success Spacex and NASA had, with the textbook docking of spacecraft with the ISS, and the anger, and violence, on the streets of major metropolitan cities in the US could not have possibly been more stark,or soul-jolting.

What more than slightly amazes me, is the understanding that this young woman didn't realize that if people knew whose daughter she was, in the group with which she was protesting, she could have been risking intense physical bodily harm, not to mention death.

The first thing you have to do, in order for something to get fixed, is to admit that there is a problem; and this is where the highest level of government, industry, and society's guardians, like teachers and those in religious movements, have to take a long-needed first step.

And a big question that must be asked here is, who can American society afford to make expendable?!?

In my world, the short answer is, no one.

We understand how to give a first-class education to every child; at least, the private, enrichment schools do, schools like Kumon, where affluent parents send their kids when they are not achieving their full potential at their regular schools.

And what these schools do is utterly not rocket science. They find out where the kid is actually functioning, through a series of evaluations, engage the kid in those areas where they are weak, and make education fun, and turn the experience of learning into something wonderful, so the kid progresses.

Oh, and did I mention that these schools are not unionized, and that the teachers are not paid anywhere near as much as a tenured, public school teacher?!? But the men and women who serve in these schools do so, not because it is a "safe job", where it is really damn near impossible to get fired.

But they are teaching in these private environments because they legitimately love kids, and want to see kids do better.

One of the worst forms of child abuse, is allowing a kid to go from class to class, and "graduate" from high school illiterate; innumerate; and pathologically incapable of logical thought processes; and yet in our inner cities, we see this happen all the time, and it should be criminalized.

And the abuse unto death of an already restrained suspect, by police department members who think they "can get away with it", should never, ever happen again in this country again, period, end of discussion.

Chatter: White man stoned to death on street after swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen offers up $100k to bail out protesters

(INTELLIHUB) — According to reports circling the Innerweb, a caucasian man may have been stoned to death on the street Saturday night following a Tweet posted by swimsuit model and author Chrissy Teigen in which the virtually unknown celeb offers up a $100,000 fund to bail out protesters in celebration of MAGA night.

In response to the diabolical model’s Tweet, @batcycle1, a.k.a. Five, Tweeted out a video that shows the brutal stoning death of a white man. Five captioned the Tweet which also includes Teigen’s original post with the following message: “I’m not sure that covers bail for murder. You’re going to get more people killed you waste of oxygen.”

“F–k you snitch!” One protester yelled as the man was being beaten into a bloody pulp.

Were Conditions for High Death Rates at Care Homes Created on Purpose?

During the COVID-19 pandemic, people in care homes have been dying in droves.

Why is this happening? Is it simply because older adults are very vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 and therefore it’s not unexpected that many would succumb?

Or do care homes deserve the lion’s share of the blame, such as by paying so poorly that many workers have to split their time between several facilities, spreading the virus in the process?

Alternatively, could medical experts and government bureaucrats, with the full knowledge of at least the top tier of government officials, have created conditions shortly after the pandemic struck that contribute to the high death tolls while engendering virtually no public backlash against themselves?

This article shows that the third hypothesis is highly plausible. The people who created the conditions may be unaware of, or oblivious to, their implications. But it’s also possible that at least some of them know exactly what they’re doing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Mike will tell you, I am the industrial-strength "Polyanna" in this little family of two. That being said, and although I would like the answers to the questions asked here, be a simple, "HELL, no!!", what the author is proposing may well be very plausible.

Not all nursing homes, or assisted living places are the same, and I understand that because I have family members still in lock-down in two assisted living facilities, which are moving heaven and earth not to get even one guest ill with this horrific bug.

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: According to Attorney the DNI Allegedly Has Call Records Between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks – It’s Now Presumed Brennan’s CIA Was More Involved Than We Thought

In June 2016, Ellen Nakashima, a Deep State favorite from the Washington Post, released a report that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) had been hacked by Russia. The firm that validated this was Crowdstrike and its President Shawn Henry confirmed the claims. In December 2016, Ms. Nakashima followed up her reporting with the outlandish claim that the CIA had determined that Russia hacked the DNC because Russia wanted Trump to win the election. Nakashima also reported that the the Intel Community had determined that Russia also sent the emails to WikiLeaks. This position was reinforced by the Mueller gang in their efforts to have President Trump removed from office.

GUCCIFER 2.0'S HIDDEN AGENDA

SOURCE: TIM LEONARD VIA CONSORTIUM NEWS

Why would an alleged GRU officer - supposedly part of an operation to deflect Russian culpability - suggest that Assange “may be connected with Russians?”

Guccifer 2.0 fabricated evidence to claim credit for hacking the DNC, covered itself (and its files) in what were essentially a collection of “Made In Russia” labels through deliberate processes and decisions made by the persona, and, then, it attributed itself to WikiLeaks with a claim that was contradicted by subsequent communications between both parties.

Guccifer 2.0 then went on to lie about WikiLeaks, contradicted its own hacking claims to attribute itself to Seth Rich and even alleged that Julian Assange “may be connected with Russians”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact this timeline is credible, it is very obvious that one of the main targets of Guccifer 2.0's campaign was to smear both Wikileaks, and by extension, Julian Assange himself.

Chinese Ambassador To Israel Found Dead In Home, Sparking Avalanche Of Rumors Amid Tensions With US

China's Ambassador to Israel has been found dead inside his home near Tel Aviv Sunday morning, Israel's Foreign Ministry has confirmed.

57-year old ambassador Du Wei had only assumed his post in February 2020 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, due to which he entered a two week mandatory self-quarantine upon his arrival. He'd previously been China’s envoy to Ukraine and is survived by his wife and son, who were not yet in the country.

Remembering 72 years of the Nakba in the shadow of annexation

When Palestinians commemorate the Nakba - the ethnic cleansing of Palestine in 1948 - they are not simply remembering a past event in which over 750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homeland, over 400 villages and towns destroyed and thousands killed.
They are also marking a continued Nakba (al-Nakba al-Mustimirrah in Arabic) - an ongoing process of erasure and ethnic cleansing which has seen Palestinians ghettoised, fragmented, killed and more.

This year we will be marking 72 years of the Nakba and yet one word seems to be taking front and centre stage: annexation. Ever since the announcement of US President Donald Trump's 'Deal of the Century' at the end of January this year, formal annexation of the occupied West Bank by Israel has been looming.

Indeed, it is rumoured that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to Netanyahu on Wednesday was to give the green light for the annexation of the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since there will be no "two state solution" because of this annexation, the best for which Palestinians can hope, and advocate, (peacefully), is the right to vote, in this new Erez Israel.

And THAT has to happen for the Palestinian people just as quickly as is humanly possible.

Standard Pontius Pilate response. Of course, the US government and its private sector “partners” in the subversion business (in this case, Silvercorp USA) are behind this miniaturized Bay of Pigs operation.

The fall guy is Jordan Goudreau, “a former member of the US Army special forces” who has, according to the BBC, “been quick to claim an association” with the captured US mercenaries.

As should be expected, the BBC watered down the significance of the event by characterizing it as a “speedboat incursion.”

From the UPI:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish that the government of the country of which I am a citizen could possibly, please, stop lying to its people and the world; of course, that has not been, nor is it likely in the future, that the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika will do such a thing.

And folks, please remember; just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this government could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do it; there is no real plausible deniability here, and the White House knows this, so they are desperately trying to change the subject.

NIGERIA: BILL GATES OFFERED HOUSE OF REPS $10M BRIBE FOR SPEEDY PASSAGE OF COMPULSORY VACCINE BILL – CUPP ALLEGES

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP), on Monday, alleged that it has intercepted a human intelligence report that the Nigeria House of Representatives leadership was poised to forcefully pass the compulsory vaccine bill without subjecting it to the traditions of legislative proceedings.

In a statement issued and signed by the spokesperson of the opposition political parties, Barrister Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere and sent to DAILY POST in Abuja on Monday, the body urged lawmakers in the lower chamber to rise against impunity.

The body in the statement alleged that a sum of $10 million was offered by the American Computer Czar, Bill Gates to influence the speedy passage of the bill without recourse to legislative public hearing, a development they averted as anachronistic, adding that the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila should be impeached if he forces the bill on members.

The statement read:

UN RAPPORTEUR ON TORTURE ‘SCARED TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT OUR DEMOCRACIES’ AFTER DELVING INTO ASSANGE CASE

SOURCE: RT
Discovering that the cruelty visited on Julian Assange by Western democracies had been premeditated has heightened the fear of learning more about how those democracies operate, the UN’s rapporteur on torture has admitted.
For years Nils Melzer has been researching on behalf of the UN just how vile and degrading the mistreatment of prisoners can become. But learning that states that are supposed to be champions of human rights can be as brutal as any other with people who cross them was quite a shock. The case that made Melzer reassess his beliefs is that of Julian Assange, who, he says, had signs of "prolonged psychological torture" while in the UK.

“First I was shocked that mature democracies could produce such an accident. Then I found out it was no accident. Now, I am scared to find out about our democracies…” the UN official tweeted on Sunday, marking a year since his visit to check on Assange at the UK’s Belmarsh top security prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason why Assange is still in prison, and subjected to psychological torture, is that he embarrassed the US government; nothing more, nothing less.

And remember; nothing Wikileaks has ever published, has ever been successfully and logically refuted.

California Congressman Tom McClintock has outlined the dire consequences of the unconstitutional COVID-19 lockdown: "How many heart, kidney, liver, and pulmonary illnesses will fester while people's lives are on hold? How many suicides or domestic homicides will occur as families watch their livelihoods evaporate before their eyes? How many drug and alcohol deaths can we expect as Americans stew in their homes under police-enforced indefinite home detention orders? How many new cases of obesity-related diabetes and heart disease will emerge as Americans are banished from outdoor recreation and instead spend their idle days within a few steps of the refrigerator? I have participated in many discussions among top policymakers in Congress and the Administration over the last few weeks. Such considerations are rarely raised and always ignored. Instead, policymakers fixate on epidemiological models that have already been dramatically disproven by actual data..."

Saudi Arabia has carried out 800 executions under King Salman: ReportExecutions have doubled in only five years, with at least 13 juvenile defendants currently on death row, says Reprieve

Saudi Arabia has carried out the 800th execution of King Salman bin Abdulaziz's five years of rule, human rights organisation Reprieve said on Tuesday.

According to the British nonprofit, which campaigns against the death penalty, the rate of execution in Saudi Arabia has doubled since 2015, when King Salman succeeded to the throne in January after the death of his half-brother, King Abdullah.

While the king's son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, said that his government planned to limit the number of executions in the kingdom, the reality is far from that statement, Reprieve said.

By comparison, Saudi authorities executed 423 people between 2009 and 2014.

Currently, there are at least 13 juvenile defendants on death row - including Ali al-Nimr, Dawood al-Marhoon and Abdullah al-Zaher - who are “at imminent risk of execution”, Reprieve and the European Saudi Organisation for Human Rights said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To other world leaders, Saudi money (not to mention oil) is what makes these abominations completely acceptible.

One wonders how so many cases of Covid-19, which has infested the royal House of Saud somewhat in the manner of a plague, are going to reshape the Saudi royal family, and in what direction.

War-Torn Yemen Confirms First COVID-19 Case, Official Says Brace For 'Millions'

Throughout five years of war Yemen has been considered by the UN and health agencies to be the 'world's worst humanitarian disaster' — but few Americans have heard much about the war or its over 100,000 dead, including tens of thousands of civilians, given that it's the US-Saudi coalition doing the bombing.

But now Yemen is about to rip back into the headlines, given the first confirmed COVID-19 case in the country, with health officials fearing "one million" could be infected if the outbreak takes hold in the war-torn country.

This as already some 25 million civilians are in dire need of humanitarian aid, including basic food, medicines, and other staples. The Saudis have essentially imposed a complete land, sea and air blockade of the country for years. Its health system also long ago collapsed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I type this, there was a news flash in the Presstitute Non-Media from yesterday which got nearly zero traction, and the headline read: Saudi royals hit by COVID-19; King, Crown Prince in isolation. Any infected staff members will now be treated at a less elite hospital to save room for royals.

Please remember; Saudi royalty will be treated brilliantly, and their staffs, at least well, and with any and everything known to help them recover, and ease their suffering.

But once this gets hold of the Yemeni population, the Yemeni people, suffering from underlying medical conditions as malnutrition; cholera; and with infants; children; women and the medically fragile elderly maimed for life by US/Saudi bombing sorties, and God knows what else, thanks to the US/Saudi blockade, Yemenis will die by the thousands from this new scourge.

I would truly love to be a citizen of a country which does not, as a matter of national course and policy, commit war crimes; unfortunately, Mike and I are both too broke, and too old, to make that happen at this time.

But having said this, I want to make something very clear to both the present, and future, US administrations; the moment you start committing war crimes around the world in our names, and with our tax dollars, this site will, in the most peaceful, logical, and most documented manner, will call you out on it, for both our brother and sister Americans, and all the world to see.

Assange’s life in GRAVE DANGER as first Covid-19 death confirmed in Belmarsh prison — Wikileaks editor-in-chief

Conditions in Belmarsh prison, where Julian Assange is held, might be worse than London is willing to admit, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson told RT, adding that Covid-19 could swiftly tear through the facility.
A prison environment is “like a Petri dish” for a virus, Hrafnsson explained, particularly such a highly infectious one as the novel coronavirus, which has already struck more than 1 million people around the world. The max security Belmarsh prison, where the WikiLeaks founder is being kept pending extradition to the US, has just reported its first death from the disease. According to Hrafnsson, there are other worrying signs too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There would be nothing certain elements of the US elite would like better, than for Assange to die of Covid-19 while in prison.

U.S. officer killed in ambush in eastern Syria: SANA

A U.S. officer, along with two Kurdish fighters, was killed on Monday in an ambush in Syria's eastern province of Deir al-Zour, state news agency SANA reported.

The ambush, carried out by an unknown group, targeted vehicles of the U.S.-led coalition and fighters of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in the village of Sur in Deir al-Zour's countryside.

The slain U.S. officer was transported to the Shaddadi base, which is run by the U.S. forces, in the southern countryside of the northeastern province of Hasakah, SANA said, providing no further details.

The U.S. forces and Kurdish-led fighters control areas in Deir al-Zour and Hasakah after dislodging Islamic State (IS) militants in battles in 2018.

Israeli settlers spit on cars to 'infect Palestinians with coronavirus' in Jerusalem

Israeli settlers spat on Palestinian cars in the village of Beit Iksa, northwest of East Jerusalem in what locals fear is an attempt to spread the deadly novel coronavirus, according to locals.

The settlers from Ramot on Tuesday evening reportedly spat at cars driven by Palestinians that were entering and leaving the village.

Local Palestinians say this was a case of trying to spread coronavirus after a number of the settler population was tested positive for deadly disease.

Palestinian youth chased the settlers away after confronting them. They then proceeded to disinfect the road and cars to prevent an outbreak.

Ramot settlement has reported 17 cases of coronavirus out of its overall population of 550 people.

Settlers from Ramot are notorious for harassing the local Palestinian population, often caught vandalising their cars and spraying hateful graffiti on their property.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How completely "humanitarian" of these Israelis to do this!!!!

There are moments when one has to wonder, "What were they thinking?!? Who of their Rabbis approved this, and why was this considered "perfectly normal" by these settlers?!?"

This, folks, is why the BDS movement is so critical here; Israelis might speak Hebrew exclusively, but when it comes to numbers and sales, they are absolutely fluent, and bilingual, in dollars and cents.

MARTIN LUTHER KING - THE FATAL SHOT CAME FROM A DIFFERENT DIRECTION

According to the government, James Earl Ray shot Dr. Martin Luther King from that window. There is, needless to say, no physical evidence to prove this charge. James Earl Ray spent his life in prison based solely on a coerced confession which he immediately retracted. None of the ballistics tests, which were performed on the rifle James Earl Ray allegedly used, were able to link that rifle to the actual bullet that killed Dr. Martin Luther King. Dr. King's family does not think James Earl Ray was the killer, and recently won a civil court case proving there was a conspiracy.

Now, thanks to writer Ted Wilburn, in a story which follows, new evidence has surfaced to prove that the government and the media have been lying to the public about the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King.

A hail of gunfire subsequently ensued, all but one of the bullets coming from police weapons, and Walker’s girlfriend 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, a certified EMT working on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, was killed in her bed.

Earlier this month, police fired 22 bullets into the couple’s home, many of them shot from outside. According to the attorney representing the family, Sam Aguiar, police were actually looking for someone else and other officers had picked the suspect up at his home in a separate raid shortly before the shooting.

America, We Have To End the Wars Now

Can anyone think what our society might have spent six and a half trillion dollars on instead of 20 years of war in the Middle East for nothing? How about the trillion dollars per year we keep spending on the military on top of that?

Invading, dominating and remaking the Arab world to serve the interests of the American empire and the state of Greater Israel sounds downright quaint at this point. Iraq War II, as Senator Bernie Sanders said in the debate a few weeks ago, while letting Joe Biden, one of its primary proponents, off the hook for it, was “a long time ago.” Actually, Senator, we still have troops there fighting Iraq War III 1/2 against what’s left of the ISIS insurgency, and our current government continues to threaten the launch of Iraq War IV against the very parties we fought the last two wars for. This would almost certainly then lead to war with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Doing things in precisely the same way, over and over and over again, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classic definitions of insanity.

Pentagon seeks to classify future year defense spending plans

The Pentagon has asked Congress to allow it to classify its Future Year Defense Program spending projections, new documents have revealed.

The FYDP numbers, which project five years into the future, are considered essential information for the public to see where the Department of Defense expects to invest in the future, and to hold the department accountable when those spending plans change.

Information on the request was published Monday by Steven Aftergood of the Federation of American Scientists. Aftergood wrote that the proposal would “make it even harder for Congress and the public to refocus and reconstruct the defense budget.”

In its request to Congress, the Pentagon wrote that an unclassified FYDP “might inadvertently reveal sensitive information,” despite the fact the numbers have been unclassified since 1989.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can certainly understand why no one at the Pentagon wanted to sign this; they wouldn't want to make it look as though anyone there would fight the concepts of openness and transparency, but looking at the language of this proposal, it is obvious that this is what they want to do.

Saudi Airstrikes Pound Yemeni Capital, Scores of Horses Killed

Looking to retaliate after Houthi missile fire into Saudi Arabia, Saudi warplanes carried out multiple airstrikes against different targets in the capital of Sanaa. hitting a presidential palace, a school, and an airbase, along with a military training site.

The coalition insisted that all of the targets hit were “legitimate military targets” that threaten civilians. Casualty reports suggest one person was killed in the strikes, along with about 70 horses who were kept at the military training site.

These are some of the biggest Saudi strikes in months, as both sides had dialed back the attacks to focus on possible peace talks. There is still no deal in sight, but escalations have led them to trade strikes on one another here and there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I think of the Saudi "justification" for strikes like this, which included horses and schools, I am very much reminded of the response given by Dominick Guzman, Papal Legate to the French province of Montsegur, to battle the Cathars, a Christian split-off group, with their own perspectives, and their own faith.

Upon being informed that women and children were also inside the siege site, his response was, "Kill them all; God will find His own."

The Catholic Church went on to canonize this guy, now known in Catholicism, as St. Dominic, so that he would go on to be revered as a saint, and not the mass murderer he actually was, in order to be rewarded for carrying out the Vatican's orders.

I would like to politely suggest to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, that the judgment of history against him, will be negative in the extreme, as will history's judgement of the two US Presidents who have enabled him, and are enabling him and his troops' war crimes in Yemen, President Obama, and President Trump.

Are they taking people who test “positive” to death camps for extermination in the UK?

A shocking video filmed by a woman reveals that something far more sinister may be taking place under the COVID-19 crisis.

A feisty woman worked up the courage to film her confrontation with several government workers dressed in bio suits that officially recorded the death of a homeless man who appeared to be in good health when he was taken away by police just minutes prior.

The woman explained to the workers that she had been feeding the man for some time and that he was perfectly alive and well when he was carted off by police.

Israeli settlers storm West Bank village, beat residents with sticks and sharp objects

Israeli settlers stormed a Palestinian village in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday and injured several residents, resulting in the skull fracture of a middle aged man, residents told Middle East Eye.

Naji Tanatra, a father of six, also sustained internal bleeding after Israeli settlers attacked him and other residents in the Umm al-Safa village with sharp tools and wooden sticks.

Residents said that the attack unfolded after a group of settlers descended onto the village's farm lands and tried to provoke the Palestinians into an altercation. Soon after, more settlers arrived and carried out the attacks.

The settlers also unleashed their own cows in the area and allowed them to cause damage to the village's crops.

The residents said Tanatra, 49, was taken to hospital and was expected to undergo surgery later on Tuesday.

Don’t let the Saudis use coronavirus concerns to hide their crimes

Saudi Arabia has just offered to host a “Virtual” G20 summit, bringing the world’s leaders together to address the coronavirus pandemic. While the world absolutely needs much better international coordination in response to this catastrophic pandemic, Saudi Arabia’s ruling family is one of the last governments we should want convening a conversation on solving any humanitarian crisis, let alone a crisis of this magnitude.

Saudi Arabia’s ruling family has repeatedly demonstrated its opposition to the very principles that enable a successful response to a global pandemic. To successfully address a public health crisis, governments must embrace information transparency and a willingness to listen to independent voices who might challenge their preconceived notions. The Saudi dictatorship has consistently done the opposite, deploying brutal campaigns of internal repression and censorship to silence dissent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter how you slice it, the Saudi "leadership" continues to be really bad news for the Middle East and beyond.

US hopes both sanctions & Covid-19 in Iran will force regime change. But it’s a MASS MURDER that will only strengthen Tehran govt

Iran is facing an existential crisis, brought on by a combination of economic, political and social emergencies which, when combined, threaten to bring the nation to its knees. The United States has, over the years, sought to destabilize Iran in hopes that it would collapse from within, clearing the way for a new pro-Western government. The current ‘maximum pressure’ campaign, built around stringent economic sanctions targeting virtually every aspect of the Iranian economy, is designed to not only bring Iran to the negotiating table, but to drive its leadership from power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the Us government could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do just that thing; the current policy on Iran, is demonstration of that, in spades.

U.S. to Iran: Coronavirus won't save you from sanctions

WASHINGTON/DUBAI (Reuters) - The United States sent Iran a blunt message this week: the spread of the coronavirus will not save it from U.S. sanctions that are choking off its oil revenues and isolating its economy.

Iran is the Middle Eastern nation worst hit by coronavirus, with its death toll climbing to 1,284 and one person dying from it every 10 minutes and 50 becoming infected every hour, the health ministry said.

The United States, which argues that its “maximum pressure” campaign to curb Iran’s nuclear, missile and regional activities does not stop the flow of humanitarian goods, imposed new sanctions this week.

The Trump administration blacklisted five companies based in the United Arab Emirates, three in mainland China, three in Hong Kong and one in South Africa for trade in Iran’s petrochemicals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These US economic sanctions are deliberately being engineered, designed, and executed in order to wreak the maximum amount of havoc on innocent Iranians.

Townsfolk claim all children are missing from town, military presence

Several residents in the small Missouri town of Aberdeen came forth in a YouTube vlog on Monday in which they expressed their concern over the fact that no children have been seen in their town of about 5,000 in recent days and documented a military presence.

“There’s still no children,” one of the women in the video said. “…and it’s not being announced for whatever reason.”

The two women can be seen in the video driving around town to various subdivisions where children are usually present and see nothing. The streets are bare despite the fact that residents have not been ordered to stay inside.

Iraq envoy to UN threatens arrest of US troops for attacks on pro-Iran militias

Iraq’s envoy to the UN threatened on Tuesday to arrest US troops in the country for carrying out air strikes on Iranian-backed Iraqi militias in the country amid rising tensions between US troops and pro-Iranian groups.

The US “perpetrators will be arrested and held accountable” for the attacks on the Iraqi militias last week, said Iraq’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Mohammed Hussein Bahr al-Uloom in a draft letter seen by Al Arabiya English.

Iran supports militias in Iraq operating under the umbrella of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU). The US has designated some of the PMU militias, including Katai'b Hezbollah, as terrorist organizations and increasingly come into conflict with them as the US and Iran compete for influence in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me ask; did you see this headline in any Corporate Presstitute outlet, yesterday, or today?!?

Would you not think that this would be a story of extreme interest to the American people, particularly since it was spelled out at the UN, in New York?!?

Folks, the situation in Iraq is in intense melt-down, and although the current Iraqi government is doing their best to get occupying US and NATO forces out of the country, and trying to do it the "honorable way" (i.e., raising holy hell at the UN, as they did yesterday), they are not going to be successful in this endeavor.

Look for more Guerrilla fighting, particularly by Shia-aligned forces, against US and NATO troops.

And folks, here is my bet; the fighters are most probably not Iranian nationals; they are most probably Iraqis Shias, who simply want their country back from US/NATO control; and the question I have to ask, nearly 17 years after the original attack (March 20, 2003) and occupation of Iraq by the US, can we really, honestly blame them?!?

The Coronavirus and the New World Order:“War is in the Air”"Time is out of joint..." – "Something is Rotten in the State of Denmark". William Shakespeare from his tragedy Hamlet

The worldwide fear of a hitherto unknown but supposedly highly contagious and weapons-grade virus means that many people feel paralysed, public life in several states is crippled by governments, at the same time fundamental civil liberties are “honed” or severely restricted and also the military is brought into readiness. What is going on here?

The former Soviet head of state Mikhail Gorbachev recently described the current political situation as extremely worrying. According to “Sputnik News” of 12.03.20 he wrote: “War is in the air.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

What concerns me most gravely right now, are statements from the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, regarding alleged "Iranian Paramilitary Activity", hitting the US's crumbling military stance in Iraq right now, where both the Iraqi people, and military, are demanding that the US military leave the country, and right the hell now.

We found this "little gem" in rt.com, their English language edition, yesterday: US will act in ‘self-defense’ if attacked in Iraq – Pompeo

The article went on to state: "Washington will act in “self-defense” in Iraq if its military comes under attack, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said. US bases in Iraq have been repeatedly shelled recently and several servicemen have been killed and injured.

Pompeo told Iraqi PM Adil Abd al-Mahdi that Baghdad “must defend Coalition personnel supporting the Iraqi government's efforts to defeat ISIS,” the US Department of State said in a statement on Monday.

Those “responsible for the attacks must be held accountable,” the official warned, adding that Washington “will not tolerate attacks and threats to American lives” and will take “action as necessary in self-defense."

And right below that, we see the following headline: "Baghdad Summons US and British Envoys after condemning their strikes on Iraqi Targets as "violation of Sovereignty". The article goes on to state:

"Over the past week the US Camp Taji base, located north of Iraq’s capital, came under rocket shelling twice. On Wednesday, three soldiers, two from the US and one from the UK, were killed at the installation, while a dozen others were injured. Iraqi military personnel were affected by the attack as well.

While no one claimed responsibility for the deadly shelling, Washington was quick to blame Iraqi Shia militias for it and launched “retaliatory” airstrikes on them. Since said militias are an integral part of the Iraqi military, the US basically bombed its own allies, killing at least six servicemen and wounding several more."

So I have to ask; under what possible geopolitical circumstance, could this possibly make sense, in Pompeo's weltanschauung?!?

The answer becomes frighteningly real, from an except of the following article last year, in an interview Pompeo did, where he made the following statements, as recorded by bbcnews.com:;
Pompeo says God may have sent Trump to save Israel from Iran
The article goes on to state:

"US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said it is "possible" that President Donald Trump was sent by God to save Israel from Iran.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network during a high-profile trip to Israel, he said it was his faith that made him believe that.

He also praised US efforts to "make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state, remains".

The comments came on a Jewish holiday celebrating rescue from genocide.

The holiday, Purim, commemorates the biblical rescue of the Jewish people by Queen Esther from the Persians, as the interviewer noted to Mr Pompeo.

What did Pompeo say?

He was asked if "President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this, just like Queen Esther, to help save the Jewish people from an Iranian menace".

"As a Christian, I certainly believe that's possible," said Mr Pompeo, a former member of Congress for Kansas and CIA director.

"I am confident that the Lord is at work here," he added."

OK, there you have it folks; to energize their evangelical base, a "faith-based" foreign policy has been put into play, which consistently demonizes Iran, and consistently characterises Israel as "the innocent party", in geopolitical affairs when most of the time, nothing could be further from the truth.

There's a phrase in DC, the originator of which I cannot recall at the moment, but it goes something like this; "Never let a good crisis go to waste"; now having said that, Covid 19, and its monumental spread, does comprise a health crisis of huge concern.

But please also note, today, in RT, there is a very serious article at the top of the blog with the following headline: US halts deployment & recalls troops from NATO’s biggest drill ‘Defender Europe 2020’ due to coronavirus threat

Sounds good, and reasonable, on the surface, doesn't it?!?

But what if there are other deployments to come for these military personnel, which may well not be announced beforehand?!?

I would like to politely speculate that these battles in Iraq against alleged "Iranian militia" at US Camp Taji base, and beyond, may well be only the "beginning here; the US government is flailing, in both Iraq, and in its Covid 19 response, and President Trump well knows that a combination of the wall-street melt-down with a "too-little too late" response to the pandemic, will most likely result in his 2020 candidacy going up in absolute flames, unless he "does something dramatic."

So please, do not bet that a war against Iran, and ultimately against Russia, which has declared their support for Iran should the US attack it (and publicly: Iran won't be alone if the US attacks it, says Russian official), is off the table for these people, particularly for Pompeo.

Chelsea Manning hospitalized after suicide attempt

The attempt came just days before she was scheduled to appear in court over sanctions related to an investigation of Julian Assange.

The activist and whistleblower Chelsea Manning attempted suicide on Wednesday, her legal team said in a news release.

The statement came only a few days before Manning was scheduled to appear at a court hearing on whether sanctions imposed on her after she refused to comply with a grand jury investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should continue. Manning came to national attention after she leaked classified documents to WikiLeaks and was court-martialed for violating the Espionage Act.

Manning has claimed that the grand jury investigation was potentially open to abuse, writing in 2019 that it was “an effort to frighten journalists and publishers, who serve a crucial public good.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A note to all her jailors, and the powers wishing to keep her in prison; this woman will die before she breaks trust on Assange; making a martyr of her; any further isolation in jail, is probably the most stupid thing you could possibly do right now, which makes it imminent.

Israel, Quarantine and an Epidemic: It’s World War Z All Over Again, Except Brad Pitt Is Missing

If Brad Pitt decided to embark on a quest to find a way to stop the coronavirus outbreak, he might want to re-watch the movie World War Z, where his character ultimately saved the world. This time around, however, he wouldn’t make it to Israel so easily.

Hollywood has produced a plethora of apocalyptic horror films, but nothing is as frightening as the threat of a real epidemic.

Israel, where 50 people have already tested positive for the novel coronavirus, is going to great lengths to stop the disease from spreading.

All visitors from abroad — Israelis and foreign citizens alike — must be placed in home isolation for two weeks, according to a Monday order by Prime Minister Netanyahu. Those who fail to demonstrate to border authorities they will be able to self-quarantine won’t be allowed into the country.

This drastic response to the viral outbreak resembles Israel’s recipe for another (fictional) epidemic: the zombie one.

Who Was Udo Ulfkotte? Meet The Fake Journalist Whose Ghost Writer Was The CIA

Udo Ulfkotte, born in Ljppstadt, West Germany on January 20, 1960 was a well-known German journalist and author of numerous books. He worked for 25 years as a journalist, 17 of which spent at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). During this time he wrote over 3400 articles for the main German newspaper, covering various roles, including war journalist and foreign policy editor.

He died on 13 January 2017, in “strange” circumstances, as he was found dead in his home and the German government declared it was a heart attack, but his body was hastily cremated, with no autopsy, thus removing forever any possibility of further regular, thorough investigation. [As Ulfkotte speaks of having three heart attacks, his death is perhaps less suspicious than it might seem, but his death did prevent his follow-up book. See below –Tr]

Remembering The Alamo

Also remember Goliad where 400 Texicans were massacred after surrendering by Santa Ana and the Mexican Army!

Tomorrow, March 6, marks the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the anniversary of the occasion.

For 13 days, 189 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna’s seasoned army of over 4,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew that they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live. Yet they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans.

A Terrifying Scenario: Coronavirus in ‘Quarantined’ Gaza

What if the Coronavirus reaches the besieged Gaza Strip?

While the question carries great urgency for all Palestinians living under Israel’s military occupation, the Gaza situation is particularly complex and extremely worrying.

Nearly 50 countries have already reported cases of COVID-19 disease, one of several epidemics that are caused by the Coronavirus. If developed countries, such as Italy and South Korea, are struggling to contain the deadly virus, one can only imagine what occupied Palestinians would have to face should the virus strike.

In fact, according to official Palestinian reports, the Coronavirus has already reached Palestine following a visit by a South Korean delegation in the period between February 8 and 15, which included a tour in the major Palestinian cities of Jerusalem, Nablus, Jericho, Hebron, and Bethlehem.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this plague hits Gaza, you can bet real money that instead of doing something concrete, top help victims heal, and minimize rates of infection, Israeli officials will "seal off" infected areas, and allow this potentially bioengineered disease to "run its course"; Mengele would have been SO PROUD of this Israeli policy!!

And hey, 30 Palestinian kids who have had to have limbs amputated, because IDF sharpshooters know just how, and where, to aim, to cause these horrendous injuries?!?

COCA-COLA ACCUSED OF FUNDING COLOMBIAN DEATH SQUAD

SOURCE: TELESUR ENGLISH
Coca-Cola was accused of hiring hitmen from a prominent paramilitary group between 1990 and 2002 to kill at least 10 trade union leaders.
U.S.-based Coca-Cola company along with more than 50 other companies were accused by Colombian courts of financing terrorism for their ties to the now-disbanded paramilitary organization, United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, a fact trade union leaders have been denouncing for decades.

The cases against the companies will be heard in a transitional justice tribunal after the peace deal with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the government is signed.

Coca-Cola was accused of hiring hitmen from the AUC between 1990 and 2002 to kill at least 10 labor union leaders who were trying to organize Coca-Cola’s plants. U.K. oil company BP has also be taken to court for its funding of AUC, along with kidnapping and human rights abuses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every executive in these companies who "signed off" on these assassinations, should be publicly accused; tried and convicted of their crimes, if guilty; and do hard time in the worst facilities their countries have to offer.

In my world, particularly when working conditions are "crud", labor unions have a legitimate place and a purpose on this planet, and the leadership of these organisations should be dealt with through negotiations; not assassinations.

And NO ONE, no matter how far up the "corporate food chain" they may be, should be allowed to get away with murder, period, end of discussion.

HomeWorld News‘You met Al-Qaeda’s medical staff’: US envoy to UN takes heat after proudly greeting notorious White Helmets

Colorful images of Ambassador Kelly Craft enthusiastically shaking hands with ‘White Helmets’ members made rounds online, with users reminding the diplomat of their connections to a jihadi group the US once fought against.
Craft, who serves as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, showed up at the Turkey-Syrian border, posing with members of the self-described “civil defense group.” She didn’t come empty-handed, though, promising a hefty $108-million “humanitarian support package” intended for the people of northern Syria.

“Grateful to shake the hands of the brave men and women of the #whitehelmets,” Kelly tweeted, hailing them as “ordinary people doing extraordinary things to save the lives of Syrian victims of Assad’s brutality.”

VIDEO RELEASED SHOWING POLICE KILL 'ER' ACTRESS DURING WELFARE CHECK, AS SHE HAD A 'SEIZURE'

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

Los Angeles, CA — All too often in this country, police are called out to check on the health of an individual who may be physically or mentally troubled. And, all too often, instead of providing that person with help, police show up and hurt, arrest, or even kill them. This process is known as a welfare check and a former actress from the hit show “ER” became one of many victims to receive this ‘help’ in 2018. Video from the incident was held for nearly two years and was only released this week.

Vanessa Marquez, 49, hadn’t harmed anyone when police showed up at her South apartment on that foreboding day back in August 2018. The landlord had simply become concerned that she may have fallen ill and wasn’t taking care of herself, so he called police for help. Sadly, this help came in the form of government issued bullets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am an extraordinarily lucky person; I have never, this lifetime, had a run-in with police that could have ever become dangerous. There were a couple of speeding tickets on Oahu, which I earned, and for which I did pay, but that was about it.

That being said, what about the ability to "talk someone down" before a police confrontation went south, and someone got horrifically hurt, or killed?!? How has that seemingly gotten lost in 21st century policing, because someone with this skill set, could most probably have prevented this "wellness check" from becoming lethal?

It sounds to me as though, in the 21st century, police in this country are in desperate need "psychological responders" to defuse situations before they result in someone's death; either that of an officer, or a person who may well not be of sound mind.
