Transhuman Fail: The Fishy Death Of Jeffrey Epstein

The late billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophilia is what has interested the media. But his own blog, which is still active even after his death, suggests what he and his fellow elites were really interested in. He called it “cutting edge science.” It is how the global elites intend to manage our lives. They already claim credit for “rewriting our global culture.”

U. K.’S DAILY MAIL LINKS BILL CLINTON & JEFFREY EPSTEIN, BUT AMERICAN PRESS SEEMS BLINDED TO THAT CONNECTION!

Daily Mail reveals some kinky stuff about Clinton & Epstein. More Daily Mail, and this is old stuff that the U.S. bought and paid for corporate lying hypocritical leftist/Marxist fake news media won’t talk about! Free Pressers update the story HERE. Of course anyone around in the 90’s was acutely aware of the “Bimbo Eruption” as it was termed regarding the multiple dalliances with women that Clinton had, and some of them violent and accusing him of rape.

Amid impeachment turmoil, HBO OKs Watergate series

US cable channel HBO on Thursday green-lit the production of a new limited series based on the Watergate scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon, starring Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux.

The two actors -- HBO veterans -- will also executive produce "The White House Plumbers," which is to be written by Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck, who scripted the network's award-winning comedy "Veep."

The announcement comes as Washington is again in the throes of an impeachment inquiry against US President Donald Trump, some 45 years after Nixon resigned to avoid a certain trial before US lawmakers.

AS THE OPCW IS ACCUSED OF FALSE REPORTING U.S. PROPAGANDA JUMPS TO ITS HELP

An international organization published two false reports and got caught in the act. But as the false reports are in the U.S. interests a U.S. sponsored propaganda organization is send out to muddle the issue. As that effort comes under fire the New York Times jumps in to give the cover-up effort some extra help.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) manufactured a pretext for war by suppressing its own scientists’ research:

OPCW emails and documents were leaked and whistleblowers came forward to speak with journalists and international lawyers. Veteran journalist Jonathan Steele, who has spoken with the whistleblowers, wrote an excellent piece on the issues. In the Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens picked up the issue and moved it forward.

World Elite EXPOSED: How Mossad’s International Spy For Hire Jeffrey Epstein Orchestrated ‘Honeytrap’ Operation

In this exclusive extract from the sensational new book EPSTEIN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES, former CIA counter-terrorism specialist Philip Giraldi said he also has “little doubt” that Epstein was running an intelligence operation, and that his knowledge helped him escape justice. But who orchestrated the “sweetheart deal” that allowed him to evade justice for masterminding an international child sex ring? The answer lies within.

Israeli Officials Warn Annexation May Lead Jordan to Take Drastic Steps

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is keen to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, on the grounds that the US is going to let him do so. Israeli officials, particularly military officials, are warning against one of the primary targets, the Jordan Valley.

The Jordan Valley, which connects the West Bank to Jordan, is something the Israeli right has long wanted to annex, as it would mean the rest of the Palestinian West Bank would never have a border with any nation other than Israel.

Military officials are warning that the big problem would be with Jordan itself, and that this move would further damage Israel-Jordan ties, and might force the Jordanian government to take drastic steps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back; the Jordanian government must really be concerned right now, and I don't blame them one whit.

This would be a complete game-changer for the Palestinians, and definitely not a good one, either.

Trump is Beholden to Chabad Doomsday Cult

The Illuminati are setting the stage for a nuclear war to fulfill Jewish prophecy. They are pitting the Zionists (US, UK, NATO? and Israel?) against the Communists (China, Russia, Iran.) Many people suspect that the Chabad cult is the head of the Illuminati snake.

Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact: Netanyahu argues he should stay in power because of deal

On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met for an hour and 45 minutes on the specifics of a proposed US-Israel defense pact. The pact amounts to a more or less direct US intervention in Israeli politics, after two elections failed to end with a government formed.

The Trump Administration had made no bones about preferring Netanyahu over his primary political rival Benny Gantz, and the pact seems to be pandering to that fact, since Gantz is opposed to the deal.

Netanyahu looks to be steering heavily into this US lifeline, arguing that the deal proves he needs to stay in power, and that in the event of a rotation government with Gantz, he’d have to be first because of his “unique” ties with the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And does Congress have to approve this in-the-works pact, or is it simply signed by President Trump, as an Executive Order?

Because if it is "President To President" and there is no Congressional oversight and approval to even begin to study its implications for the US's defense of Israel, this means that Israel can demand that US fight its wars for it in perpetuam, perpetually, beginning with a war against Iran.

Rare MSM Hate Hoax Mention

The graffiti in rural Indiana became a national sensation, part of a string of high-profile hate crime reports in the wake of Donald Trump’s victory. Late-night television host Stephen Colbert featured an image of one of the tagged walls during a monologue. The church’s priest, the Rev. Kelsey Hutto, appeared on CNN to champion the values of St. David’s, an island of liberalism in conservative Brown County.

But the malefactor turns out to be the church’s gay organist * who was mad at his Trump-voting mom. The article concludes with a long section about how his left wing church forgave him for libeling his Trump-supporting neighbors.

West Ramp Up Anti-Iran Propaganda

US and Western European officials are continuing a strategy of making dubious allegations against Iran in an effort to try to justify continued military hostility, which is expected to involve a large US military buildup in the region.

In Europe, this is centering on claims about Iran’s conventional missile systems, arguing that they are in violation of a UN ban on nuclear-capable missiles even though Iran doesn’t have any nuclear warheads. Iran has pointed out this is a lie, saying they have a right to missile systems under international law.

This allegation, pushed by Britain, France, and Germany, is likely to be a red herring that will be used in upcoming talks with Iran about their civilian nuclear program to distract from relatively straightforward matters of sanctions relief and enrichment limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Demonization is generally the last act before an actual invasion; that being said, however, there are many more millions in this country, and beyond, who now understand, in hindsight, and without a shadow of a doubt, that this was the same kind of codswallop we were getting, courtesy of the corporate media, before the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sorry, President Trump; no deal here at all.

Pentagon ‘Denies’ Plans to Send 14,000 More Troops to Area Around Iran

The denial isn’t necessarily particularly binding, since the consideration would’ve been at the White House level, not the Pentagon level. The Pentagon has often made policy proclamations that don’t pan out when the administration makes decisions.

In all likelihood, a series of options are being considered, with all reports pointing to the US again escalating its presence. Sending another 14,000 troops is likely on the extreme end of possibilities, but there appears to be no denying that another buildup is in the offing.

The Navy is already talking about the possibility of sending a second aircraft carrier to the region, if so ordered, with Admiral Mike Gilday saying the US could “absolutely” do this as part of the maximum pressure campaign on Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would sincerely like to hope (and pray) that those in the Bowels of Power in DC; the Pentagon; the White House; and Congress, do remember that the following statement was made by a Russian official to an Iranian Official back in June of this last year. As reported by the Moscow Times, English Edition, on 26 June of 2019:

IRAN WON'T BE ALONE IF THE US ATTACKS- RUSSIAN OFFICIAL SAYS

We all know that "plausible deniability" is a religion for members of this country's leadership; but war with Russia, in order to decap Tehran?!?

I would like to hope that reasonably sane people would not consider this a great idea; in fact, this would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly things the US government and military could do; that being said, unfortunately, there is absolutely no guarantee that the US government and military won't haul off and do it.

US Releases Photos of Seized 'Significant Cache' of Iran Missile Parts Headed to Yemen

The US government announced on Thursday that it had intercepted a weapons stash which it alleges was destined for Houthi militants and delivered by Iran. This comes as the Trump administration steps up its pressure on the Iranian government.

The US government on Thursday released photos of missile parts which military officials claim to be of Iranian origin and allegedly meant to be delivered to Yemen.

Brian Hook, the US Special Representative for Iran and a senior adviser to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, displayed the photos during an official briefing on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that this is the closest thing the US government can "wave at the world" regarding Iran, in lieu of an actual bloody shirt; and Secretary of State Pompeo, please let me politely disabuse you of any notion that the American people, or anyone else, for that matter, is "buying in"on this.

The butt-ugly reality, Mr. Secretary, is that fake weapons can be created anywhere, then put on display "for show", with the public told that they were "confiscated".

Truth Be Told

How do Americans discern truth from fiction in this era of fake news?

By now, any American who doesn’t have their head in the sand should have lost any faith they ever had in the news media as the 4th estate of government, the de facto examiner and investigator of government.

One survey reveals 95% of those Americans polled are “troubled by fake news.” How can Americans find the truth when, according to a Pew Research Center study:

69% say the federal government withholds important information from the public
61% say the news media ignores important stories
58% of adults are not confident people can hold civil conversations with those who have different views
57% are not confident people will cast informed votes in elections

Horowitz reportedly finds FBI lawyer falsified FISA doc; WaPo stealth-deletes Strzok connection

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has found evidence that an FBI lawyer manipulated a key investigative document related to the FBI's secretive surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser -- enough to change the substantive meaning of the document, according to multiple reports.

The show-stopping development comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News that Horowitz's comprehensive report on allegations of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant abuse against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page will be released on Dec. 9. "That's locked," Graham said.

The new evidence concerning the altered document, which pertained to the FBI's FISA court warrant application to surveil Page, is expected to be outlined in Horowitz's upcoming report. CNN first reported the news, which was largely confirmed by The Washington Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this revelation; and to be brutally honest,
responsible, fact checking (NOT to be confused with "Stealth Editing") reporting at WaPo kind of disappeared quite some time ago

BOOM! Rudy Giuliani Meets with Ukrainian Lawmaker Andrey Derkach Who Revealed Burisma Holdings Paid Joe Biden $900,000 for Lobbying

In October Ukrainian Parliamentarian Andrey (Andriy) Derkach revealed in a press conference that Joe Biden was paid $900,000 for lobbying efforts from Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.

This is the same organization that paid Hunter Biden over $50,000-83,000 a month to sit on their board in an obvious pay-for-play maneuver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tom Perez, PLEASE,. DAMMIT!!! you owe it to both your Party, and the nation, to get Biden to withdraw his candidacy, because these revelations will absolutely kill him when election time rolls around in 2020, if by some wild and unforeseen circumstance he actually wins the primary spot as your Presidential Candidate.

Or, are you just not making the effort, because you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Hillary will win a third-time try at the Presidential nomination in a brokered convention?!?

Dem Rep. Green: ‘No Limit’ to How Many Times We Can Try to Impeach Trump

Thursday on C-SPAN, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) discussed impeachment, saying “there is no limit” to how many times the House and Senate can try to impeach President Donald Trump.

Green said he suspects Trump will have additional offenses in the future, so he believes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will “move forward” with a vote to impeach Trump for his alleged quid pro quo demand with Ukraine and then try again “at a later time” if they find more during their investigations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Representative Green may be correct on his assessment of there being no Statute of Limitations on impeachment; but at what cost to this country's political process, not to mention the nation's heart and soul?!?

Apparently, Representative Green is at his happiest when he can be a part of the impeachment process.

But I sincerely hope that his constituents, who elected him to actually represent them, understand that every moment he spends on the impeachment process against President Trump, that is a moment stolen from their real needs and concerns.

KENYA: NAIROBI GOVERNOR ARRESTED FOR 'ECONOMIC CRIMES'

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
The governor of Nairobi was arrested on Friday shortly after Kenya's chief prosecutor ordered he be detained to face charges for economic crimes.

Governor Mike Sonko is the latest in a string of top officials to be hauled in on corruption charges as Kenya battles to clamp down on rampant graft.

Sonko and other country officials are accused by public prosecutor Noordin Haji of having benefited from irregular procurement and payments of $3.5m (3.1 million euros).

Haji said he had sufficient evidence to prosecute Sonko and other county officials for "unlawful acquisition of public property, money laundering and other economic crimes."

"I have therefore ordered for the immediate arrest and arraignment in court of the Governor of Nairobi Hon. Mike Mbuvi Sonko and other persons," Haji said in a statement earlier on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the charges are actually supported by fact; or if this is an attempt to consolidate power in the hands of the current President, Uhuru Kenyatta, the President of Kenya before the next election cycle.

MASSIVE LEAK CONFIRMS TURKEY'S "GOLD-FOR-GAS" SCHEME TO EVADE US SANCTIONS ON IRAN

OURCE: ZEROHEDGE
We first started noticing major 'odd' exports of gold from Turkey to Iran in May 2012. Turkey’s trade balance fluctuated wildly as gold stocks flowed out of the country in bursts.

“Turkey’s going to continue it,” the Turkish economy minister said. “If those casting aspersions on the gold trade are searching for immorality, they should take a look in the mirror.”

Then, in 2014, we discussed Turkey's "200 tons of secret gold" trade with Iran detailing how a complex network that spanned Turkey, China, Dubai and Iran was used to skirt US sanctions on energy exports from Iran.

The operation featured an Iranian-born businessman who liked fast horses, faster cars and the fastest planes. His unique skill: Getting gold into sanctions-encircled Iran.

Enough gold that for a time he became the government’s key instrument in improving Turkey’s irksome economic imbalance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what President Trump and NATO (which still also has stringent sanctions against Iran)are going to do about this.

I mean, Edrogan was just at the White House a couple of weeks ago, right?!?
President Trump meets with Turkish President Erdogan at the White House, 11/13/2019

If this was NEVER on the table, in terms of their discussions, one has to wonder to the degree President Trump feels betrayed about these very consistent shenanigans on Turkey's "trading with the (alleged) enemy" right now.

Lost count? Israel killed 43 Palestinians in November

The study also revealed that the Israelis have killed 526 Palestinians since Trump’s announcement of occupied Jerusalem as capital of the occupation state back in December 6, 2017. The martyrs included 111 children, 22 women, 6 Palestinians with special needs, and 108 martyrs in Israeli strikes on Gaza. There were also 13 prisoners, who were killed in Israeli jails, and one Palestinian killed in an assassination in Malaysia.

We Are All George Zimmerman Now

By George Zimmerman

Most people know my name, George Zimmerman, largely due to negative stereotypes propagated by the media as a result of the 2012 incident in Sanford, Florida, in which Trayvon Martin died.

Unfortunately, most people don’t recall the fact that I was exonerated of any wrongdoing after a thorough investigation by the Sanford Police Department in March 2012. They had interviewed dozens of witnesses, analyzed 911 calls, and examined the physical evidence of my broken nose, the lacerations on the back of my head, as well as the bruised knuckles of my assailant......

Stalingrad at 75, the Turning Point of World War II in Europe

This month, three quarters of a century ago, the most famous battle of the Second World War began. More than four million combatants fought in the gargantuan struggle at Stalingrad between the Nazi and Soviet armies. Over 1.8 million became casualties. More Soviet soldiers died in the five-month battle than Americans in the entire war. But by February 2, 1943, when the Germans trapped in the city surrendered, it was clear that the momentum on the Eastern Front had shifted. The Germans would never fully recover.

Dec 05 15:34

Who Beat Hitler? USA, Britain, Or Russia

If the defeat of the German army was the central strategic task, the main one was the conflict on the eastern front. The German army was first weakened and then driven back, before the main weight of Allied ground and air forces was brought to bear in 1944. Over four hundred German and Soviet divisions fought along more than 1,000 miles. Axis divisions between 1941 and 1945. The scale and geographical extent of the eastern front dwarfed all earlier warfare. Losses on both sides far exceeded anywhere else in the military contest. The war in the east was fought with a ferocity almost unknown on the western fronts. The battles at Stalingrad and Kursk, which broke the back of the German army, drew from the soldiers of both sides the last ounces of physical and moral energy.

Black vs. White Crime Statistics

The myth of white privilege says blacks are arrested and incarcerated at a higher rate due to systemic racism that exists in the law enforcement and court systems. However white privilege isn’t real, and we’re going to prove that institutional racism isn’t the cause, but the breakdown in the family unit and uneducated people who make bad life choices are the real causes of the problem.
Do Blacks Commit More Violent Crimes Than Whites?

Is a black person more likely to be a criminal than a white person? According to 2016 stats from the US Census Bureau non-Hispanic whites makeup 61.3% of the population, and blacks make up 13.1% of the population. (2016 US Census results / archive)

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The first public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry began this week with quite a splash.

A bunch of Jewish actors are at play in this drama, and we’ve covered some before: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is caught in the middle of it all. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the Californian Democrat who is running the hearings. And Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the associates of Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lawyer, who are alleged to be instrumental in pressuring Zelensky to give in to Trump and provide damaging information on his political rivals.

The Jews Of The Impeachment Showdown: A Visual Guide

This is from the Forward a Jewish publication.

The holidays are coming, a chill settled across much of America this week, and impeachment is going public. It’s time to ask the question we’ve all been wondering about, now that several reliable news organizations have corroborated that President Donald Trump planned to give Ukraine hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid if, and only if, Ukraine’s leader publicly announced investigations into one of Trump’s political rivals.

Namely, which of these impeachment characters is Jewish?

Now, we don’t present the following flow chart as evidence that there is some deep, dark Jewish secret at the center of the impeachment inquiry. So far, impeachment has (thankfully) little, if anything, to do with Israel, and the Jews at its center aren’t there because of their ties to major Jewish organizations.

Since “climate change” alarmism has flopped, the same scammers are now toying with a new phrase they hope will sound more urgent

Writing in Ad Age, professional brand strategist Aaron Hall said that he feels terms like “global warming” and “climate change” are too neutral and don’t grab enough attention.

...

His team came up with some ideas that they apparently hope will scare more people into voting for liberals. He said: “We need these folks to understand the severity of what’s happening to their planet and inspire them to make more eco-friendly life choices and pro-climate choices at the ballot box.”

In that spirit, two of his top choices are “global meltdown” and “global melting.”

Congo: Millions Die While the “UN Keeps the Peace”

With 18,000 troops, the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Congo is the largest in the world, and it has been in Congo for 20 years without protecting the people or the peace. A young protester in Beni told Aljazeera, “The UN is supposed to keep us safe, to keep peace in North Kivu, but we’ve never seen the peace. So we are so angry we don’t want them to stay here in North Kivu.”

Congolese Swiss historian Bénédicte Kumbi Njoko also spoke to Aljazeera:

“If we think about the UN and its presence, we need to go back to almost 59 years that the UN has been working in the Congo because there were problems in the country. And I think that if we take that into perspective, we can of course question the utility of this organization, because what we have seen the last 20 years now is that people are still dying and this war that is happening in the Congo has caused already more than 8 million deaths, so maybe the response that the UN is giving to that situation is not an appropriate one.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's about the resources, folks, and who controls them. A little more than a year ago, we find the following story in zerohedge.com:

Hot economic warfare: scrambling for rare earth minerals

The article goes on to state: "In countries like the Democratic Republic of Congo, columbite-tantalite, a mineral used in the manufacture of semi-conductor chips, is such a hot commodity that rival warlords, some acting on behalf of outside players, including Rwanda, Uganda, Israel, Japan, China, and the United States battle one another for control of the mineral’s extraction and export.

The Rwanda Mines, Petroleum, and Gas Board signed a deal in 2017 with a major Japanese rare earth extraction firm for the exploration and mining of rare earths, as well as tungsten, in Rwanda. However, Rwandan President Paul Kagame is known to have backed fellow Tutsi rebels in the DRC, who exploit rare earth mines in South and North Kivu provinces and send the stolen minerals to Rwanda. There have been attempts to curtail the trade in “conflict minerals” in the Great Lakes region of Africa, but they have all come to no avail."

And so, UN soldiers do what they do best; they simply allow the violence to continue, not wanting to get in the middle of these wars for 21st century riches.

Cartel Violence Explodes - Has Mexico Finally Lost All Control?

Authored by Sarah Cowgill via LibertyNation.com,

On the heels of President Donald Trump’s attempts to designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs), an attack uncomfortably close to U.S. soil has the Mexican government scrambling and the president fuming. At least 22 died over the weekend as rival cartels struggling for Northern Mexico turf dominance clashed with local law enforcement in Villa Union, Coahuila, an hour’s drive from Eagle’s Pass, TX. The brazen attack seemingly was directed at the Mexican government to send a warning as to who is in charge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the real question which should be asked is, was Mexico's government ever, really, in control of cartel violence in the first place, and the short answer is, "HELL no!".

My late maternal grandmother, Thelma, lived in Eagle's Pass Texas as a kid, and when I was a teenager, she took me there to meet an old family friend; the place looked like a broken stepchild of two countries which had no real compunction to fix anything which, to my eyes, meant everything.
The grinding, unrelenting urban poverty I remember seeing, broke my heart, and I wondered how this town was supposed to survive, in such a condition.

Fast-forward to 2019, and it is very obvious to me, that the drug cartels have taken over on both sides of the US/Mexico border.

But if President Trump wants to put an end to this alleged "war on drugs", which is utterly doomed to failure, in its current configuration, all he has to do, is to declassify, and decriminalize small amounts of drugs for personal use, then have those using referred to counseling, rather than jail.

And guess what European country has already made this work, at least to some degree: Portugal's radical drugs policy is working, so why hasn't the world copied it?

Now I will be the first to admit that this policy had areas where it didn't work; however, that being said, it is one hell of a lot more practical, and more compassionate, than nearly anything being done in the US.

A SECOND WHISTLE BLOWN ON THE OPCW’S DOCTORED REPORT

Another whistleblower leak has exposed the fraudulent nature of the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) report on the alleged chemical weapons attack in the Syrian city of Douma, close to Damascus, on April 7 last year.

The first leak came from the Fact-Finding Mission’s engineering sub-group. After investigating the two sites where industrial gas cylinders were found in Douma and taking into account the possibility that the cylinders had been dropped from the air it concluded that there was a “higher probability” that both cylinders were placed at both sites by hand. This finding was entirely suppressed in the final report

No Setup? Horowitz To Claim Mifsud Wasn't US Asset, Yet Papadopoulos Says He's Italy's Spook

The Washington Post reports that Attorney General William Barr's hand-picked prosecutor could not confirm that Russiagate figure Joseph Mifsud is a US intelligence asset - thus, according to the Post, the Russiagate counterintelligence investigation against the Trump campaign could not have been a setup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this is, in fact true, why is there no current "proof of life" for this guy?!? In the following link from a wikipedia article: Missing report

The article goes on to state: "According to a filing in a U.S. federal court in the case Democratic National Committee v. Russian Federation in September 2018, Mifsud was "missing and may be deceased". Mifsud's whereabouts were unknown and he could not be served with the complaint.[42] He spoke to his girlfriend on 31 October 2017. The next day an Italian newspaper revealed that the "professor" referred to in news reports about Papadopoulos was Mifsud, and she has not heard from him since then.[43] According to CNN, he has "gone to ground" and was last seen on 6 November 2017 at Link University, a private university in Rome where he was teaching at the time.[25] In September 2018, an Italian court described his location as "residence unknown".[2]

According to media reports, Mifsud was in Rome as of April 2019.[3] On October 1, 2019, the Italian newspaper il Foglio published a photo of Mifsud in Switzerland with a copy of the Swiss newspaper Zürichsee-Zeitung dated May 21, 2018, as proof that he was still alive.[41]

IF he is still alive, why did he feel that he had to "escape" to Switzerland, to avoid having to give any testimony during the impeachment process?!?

Something is more than fishy here; "Misfud, the Missing" is probably still missing, because the alleged "dirt" on Hillary Clinton would have been utterly explosive during the 2016 campaign, or... he was a Democratic operative all along, trying to lay a chain of false evidence against her.

He is (or was), potentially, a "live liability" to the Clinton campaign; and we all understand just how much the DNC LOVES live liabilities.

Stockholm: Elderly Residents Kicked Out Of Apartments To Make Way For Migrants

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Dozens of elderly residents were forced to leave their apartments in an area of Stockholm after the block was closed, only to be re-opened again for migrants to replace them.

Residents at Dianagården were told they would have to leave because the toilets in the facility were 5cm too small to comply with regulations.

However, soon after the 48 apartments were emptied, they were filled with newly arrived migrants.

“It was later revealed that politicians planned that immigrants would instead move into the premises,” reports Fria Tider.

In 2015, Sweden accepted more refugees per capita than any other country, and despite worsening problems with sexual assaults, grenade attacks and violent crime, the inflow shows no sign of being seriously restricted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And where, please, are these displaced elderly people supposed to go?!? Was their utterly no compassion for them, that they got thrown into the streets on their own, unless they were lucky enough to have family able to take them in?!?

Does the Swedish government consider these people "irrelevant/useless", and are they hoping that they will do the "right thing" by dying as immediately as humanly possible?!?

Remember, Sweden does have a "euthanasia program"; Eugenics was a movement within the “social hygiene” concept of the early part of the twentieth century. It was widely promoted to reduce births among mentally ill and handicapped people in some states in the USA and was upheld in decisions of the Supreme Court. It was also practiced in Canada and Sweden

In fact, I am astounded, that there appear to have been no "euthanasia vans" outside this residence, insuring that these elderly retired people could take advantage of their presence, in order to die right there and then.

But I am going to make a fearless prediction about the next general election in Sweden. One thing very common for the elderly, is that they vote; look for the government of Sweden take a massive "lurch" to the right, after this latest insult to injury.

And to the Swedish government; when this happens, you will have no one else to blame but yourselves.

"Floodgates Are Open" - German Banks Start Charging Retail Savers

It has been over 7 years since the European Central Bank's key deposit facility rate was positive, and just a few weeks ago it was lowered to a record low of -50bps.

Source: Bloomberg

And during that time, European bank stocks have suffered greatly...

Source: Bloomberg

As Cornelius Riese, co-CEO of Frankfurt-based DZ Bank A.G. (Germany’s second-largest by assets), observed, negative rates indeed “have a huge impact on banks.” Riese ventured to offer some gentle criticism of Draghi & Co.’s grand policy experiment:

“Maybe at the end of the story, in three to five years, we will notice it was a historical mistake.”

Well, it appears we are about to reach the vinegar strokes of that 'historical mistake', as Bloomberg reports, German banks are breaking the last taboo: Charging retail clients for their savings starting with very first euro in the their accounts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to cause intelligent savers to move as quickly as humanly possible into other assets, such as gold, silver, or whatever they think a "stable" version of a bitcoin is going to be.

Savings... should be about earning money, not having money taken away from you for absolutely no damned good reason.

NATO Names China As New Enemy, Alongside Russia

Authored by Jason Ditz via AntiWar.com,

The 1949 NATO Treaty never attempted to single out a specific enemy for the alliance to fight against, and while it was clear at the time the Soviet Union was the focus, the lack of specificity has meant numerous attempts in recent history to add enemies, or make up new things for the alliance to do.

During this week’s NATO meeting, they are going to officially add a new nation to the list of “challenges,” in the form of China, with NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg saying NATO has to “tackle the issue” of China’s growing capabilities.

China is a major military and economic power, though not hostile to any NATO member nations. That China is a Pacific nation makes them a strange enemy for an alliance supposedly focused on the north Atlantic to single out.

NATO, however, is at a crossroads trying to figure out its identity and purpose, and China’s sheer size makes it an attractive target to justify NATO’s continued existence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh). President Trump, a word, please.

This is what a geopolitical body does when its member nations understand that they are incapable of competing with a growing economic, military, and political power, as Russia and China have become.

So what does that entity try to do?!?

First, that entity will play the geopolitical equivalent of "Wreck-it Ralph" using the same old, warn scenario; attempt to destabilize the government, and usher in a (western backed and funded) "color revolution"; get the offending governmental officials out of office, and insert a more western centric leadership in its place.

But what if such a move is unlikely to take place?!? Then, there comes the deranged move to start thinking the unthinkable; to use nuclear weapons to create a decap strike against the "offensive country or countries", shattering them into smithereens.

Paul Craig Roberts, a brother blogger with an incredible professional history, whose work I respect greatly, has shared the following with the public; this comes from a post from 2017; just two years ago.

Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China The article goes on to state:

"Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.

It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done."

I would like to hope that this is not the direction into which the US government is trying to push NATO.

An article in Google tells us the following about NATO and its access to nuclear arms:

"Of the three nuclear powers in NATO (France, the United Kingdom and the United States), only the United States is known to have provided weapons for nuclear sharing. As of November 2009, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey are hosting U.S. nuclear weapons as part of NATO's nuclear sharing policy."

And I would dearly hope (and pray) that the leadership of these NATO member nations understand, that attempting to create a nuclear Armageddon against China, and/or Russia, will most probably have the consequence of the destruction of life on this planet as we know it, including the complete obliteration of those countries with which the US is willing to "share" nuclear weapons.

'Snarky' Stanford Impeachment Witness Apologizes After Outrage Over Barron Trump Comment

Update: Stanford University Professor Pamela Karlan apologized on Wednesday after receiving sharp rebuke for mentioning President Trump's 13-year-old son, Barron Trump.

No apology from an angry partisan would be complete, however, without a new attack in the same breath...

"I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president's son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he's done that's wrong, but I do regret having said that," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you are smart, in the game of geopolitics, you never go after a "political assassination target's" kid; that is sheer Kryptonite for anything possibly pertinent to the case at hand you have to say after making that kind of a gaffe.

The professors who have been chosen to testify in this "kangaroo court", all have one thing in common; and that is, a collective absolute, snarling, loathing of President Trump, and everything he stands for; legal immigration; the rule of law; and the steadfastness in his conviction that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, are truly the still standing, and original, Contract with America.

And hey, Dr. Karlan; if you ever get out this way, to a legal symposium here in Indiana, please stop by for tea.

I would love to meet you, and explain to you why, during 2016, I found myself more supportive of Trump than Hillary Clinton.

You will find me friendly, an equity feminist, reasonably well-educated, a church-goer, and an essentially a very gentle soul, who does not belch fire when speaking lucidly, and logically, about why I made my choice to support Trump over Clinton.

Perhaps such dialogue will prove elucidating for you, if you would dare to try it. :-)

'This Is Exactly What Hillary Tried To Do' - Critics Slam New Biden Ad For Claiming 'World Is Laughing' At Trump

Vice President Joe Biden and his team have seized on Tuesday evening's now-infamous 'hot mic' moment featuring Justin Trudeau, Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron and Dutch PM Mark Rutte and transformed it into a campaign advertisement claiming that the rest of the world is laughing at President Trump.

The world is laughing at President Trump. They see him for what he really is: dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership.

We cannot give him four more years as commander in chief.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, the former "Vice-Gaffe" in the US government is now taking advantage of a "hot mike gaffe" with President Trump, as though it had never ever happened to him, whatsoever.

I would like to politely point out, that the gaffe-prone former Vice President, has several compendiums of his noticeably, painfully cringe-worthy public gaffes, available courtesy of the following sites:

David Cole in Auschwitz—David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper, Director, Auschwitz State Museum

A young Jewish holocaust revisionist, posing as a believer, puts some hard questions to a museum tour guide and to the senior curator of the Auschwitz State Museum. After making this video, a "hit" was put out on Cole, and a reward for information on his whereabouts was issued by Irv Rubin (who years later, was arrested by the FBI for planning to kill a Lebanese-American Congressman.) Fearing assassination, Cole went into hiding, changing his name to David Stein. Some 20 years later, when a disgruntled former girlfriend blew his cover, he resurfaced again, unapologetic about his iconoclastic views on Auschwitz…

Western France Runs Out Of Gas As "Massive Strikes" Set To Paralyze Entire Nation

France is bracing for major transportation disruptions throughout the country starting Thursday, as trade unions launch a strike in response to changes President Emmanuel Macron wants to make to the country’s retirement system, while port blockades have resulted in widespread fuel shortages across the country. Much of the Paris Metro will be shut down, as will many national and international train lines, including certain Eurostar services. Flights will also be canceled, as air traffic controllers say they will join the protests through Saturday.

Hundreds of filling stations around western France have run out of gasoline and diesel as blockades of oil refineries enter their second week according to industry group UFIP. According to The Local, construction workers have been blockading refineries in Brittany since last week and a blockade at La Rochelle has resumed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely suggest to Premier Macron, that he needs to get his own economic "house in order" before he continues having "open mike hissy fits" again with President Trump; it appears that this strike will put maximum pressure on his government, and a lot of economic pain on the citizens of France.

Hillary Clinton: Joe Biden ‘Can Win the Electoral College’

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told SiriusXM talk radio host Howard Stern on Wednesday that former Vice President Joe Biden could defeat President Donald Trump in 2020.

Whoever can win, that’s all I care about,” she replied. “So that’s tricky.”

When asked if she believed that Biden could actually win the Democrat nomination, Clinton said it was too soon to tell.

“I think it’s too soon to tell because nobody has voted or caucused because right now, according to the polls, Biden is going to get the nomination,” she said. “But that’s a long way off, and then, he can win the Electoral College because, remember, it’s not the popular vote, as I learned.”

When Stern asked Clinton if Democrats needed a “middle-of-the-road” candidate to beat Trump, instead of a more leftist candidate like Sen. Bernie Sanders, she said it was important for Democrats in the general election to appeal to more voters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

She's annoyed at the 24/7 news cycle, which started trotting out her messes, before the 2016 elections, and now has both Father and Son do the Hypocrisy Two Step, with dad having to defend himself from the Ukraine debacle; his son, having to defend himself against both that, and the reality that he has had a child out of wedlock, as the baby's DNA confirmed.

Hunter Biden will now have to hand over FIVE YEARS of financial records - including his time at Ukrainian oil company - and his baby mama has to disclose her stripper tips at DC club where the two met

Hunter Biden will have to turn over five years of financial records in his paternity battle against his baby mama Lunden Roberts, DailyMail.com can disclose.

The son of former VP Joe Biden will have to tell an Arkansas judge exactly how much he made by controversially sitting on the board of a Ukrainian oil company.

Roberts will also have to disclose her financial records, including how much she made in tips as a stripper at the Mpire Club in D.C. where the two met
Originally Judge Don McSpadden presiding over the court in Batesville, Arkansas, had only asked for three years' records.

On Tuesday, McSpadden sent out a blunt letter to attorneys in the case — including the one that Biden fired minutes before a hearing on Monday
He gave both Biden, 49, and Roberts, 28, just 10 days to come up with their financial details.

Roberts is demanding Biden pay child support for their 16-month-old child and at least $11k in her attorney fees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fertilizer is must about to hit the air conditioning system for both Bidens, and in a very relatively short amount of time.

GOP member urges Graham to subpoena Schiff, Biden phone records

A House Republican is pressing Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) to subpoena the call records of top Democrats and a whistleblower lawyer, signaling a new GOP line of defense amid the impeachment inquiry examining President Trump’s ties to Ukraine.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), one of Trump’s House allies, asked Graham in a letter Wednesday to subpoena AT&T for the call records of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, as well as the attorney for Ukraine whistleblower, Mark Zaid.

“Chairman, I urge you to utilize your subpoena power as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and obtain call records for the following individuals: Rep. Adam Schiff, The whistleblower’s lawyer Mark Zaid, Former Vice President Joe Biden, and Hunter Biden,” Banks wrote to Graham.

Trump administration considers 14,000 more troops for Middle East – WSJ

Providing additional information on the fresh tussle between the United States (US) and Iran, after the US navy spotted missile parts linked to Iran, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) came out with the story that says the Trump administration is looking to deploy around 14,000 more troops in the Middle East. The news relies on anonymous US officials.

Key quotes
The Trump administration is considering a significant expansion of the U.S. military footprint in the Middle East, including dozens of more ships, other military hardware and as many as 14,000 additional troops to counter Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where is President Trump actually going to place these troops?!?

Israel? Saudi Arabia? Bahrain? Iraq? Syria?!?

And would someone please tell me just what the hell Iran has done recently, other than develop a financial system which can allow European countries to do do business with them, other than SWIFT?!?

Or.... Is Bibi Netanyahu just having an officially horrible week, and he has "ordered" one of his BFFs (President Trump) to start something militarily, to "take the pressure off of him", during these corruption trials?!?

This is all speculation, until we can see what the timing of the deployment will be, and how many US military will be dispatched to where President Trump and the Pentagon think they should be, and I would imagine we will probably know later this month.

And we have an ominous, darkly threatening headline from zerohedge, with the following title: US Officials Tout Fresh Intelligence; there is an imminent Attack Threat Against US Troops

The article goes on to state: "As is typical when vague claims of a new 'Iran threat' is on the horizon there's absolutely nothing in terms of specifics or evidence, just anonymous officials and fear inducing headlines (also via the same intel bureaucrats which gave us the Iraq war)".

OVER 200 ARRESTED IN 13 COUNTRIES IN EUROPOL CRACKDOWN ON MONEY LAUNDERING

More than 200 people have been arrested in 13 countries as part of a global crackdown on money laundering, the European police authority Europol said on Wednesday.

The swoop by law enforcement authorities in European countries, as well as Australia and the United States took place between September and November, AFP reports. The operations resulted “in the identification of 3,833 money mules alongside 386 money mule recruiters, of which 228 were arrested,” Europol said.

More than 650 banks, 17 bank associations and other financial institutions helped to report 7,520 fraudulent money mule transactions, preventing a total loss of €12.9 million ($14.3 million), according to the statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One certainly has to wander; how much laundered money did these banks not report, and why?!?

I have a sense those who were arrested, was really the lower-rung people, and those elite among them were not included in the loop and subsequent arrest, because Europol wanted this to look like they were actually "doing something" to stop these practices, when this is only a tip of the hidden money iceberg in international transactions.

The American Empire and its Media

Largely unbeknownst to the general public, executives and top journalists of almost all major US news outlets have long been members of the influential Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Established in 1921 as a private, bipartisan organization to “awaken America to its worldwide responsibilities”, the CFR and its close to 5000 elite members for decades have shaped US foreign policy and public discourse about it. As a well-known Council member famously explained, they transformed the American republic into a global empire, albeit a “bene­volent” one.

KONE TO PUT FACIAL RECOGNITION AND ALEXA LISTENING DEVICES IN ELEVATORS

The good old days of elevator music being a minor distraction is about change.

VentureBeat reports that "elevators of the future will have virtual windows, voice-activated controls, music-streaming, and more."

KONE's DX Class, elevators will give security and the buildings owners, unparalleled access to view what is happening inside their elevators.

"Yesterday’s announcement concerned new elevators designed from the get-go with connectivity built in, allowing building owners to remotely control, activate, and deactivate specific services from a central dashboard. The setup includes a dynamic display, acoustics, and lighting that can be used to tailor the ambiance and interior."
KONE's "Monitoring Solutions" page also reveals that security and law enforcement can identify elevator riders in real-time.They even went so far as to trademark their real-time elevator spying program. It's called KONE E-Link:

The next time I walk into a building in which I know these devices have been installed, I believe I will take the stairs, thank you very much.

PRINCE ANDREW'S BOMBSHELL EMAIL TO GHISLAINE MAXWELL UNCOVERED

Buried emails from Prince Andrew have revealed the under-fire duke was asking close friend Ghislaine Maxwell for information on his accuser.

Emails between Prince Andrew and close friend Ghislaine Maxwell uncovered in a BBC documentary have thrown doubt on his claims that he did not recall meeting his accuser Virginia Giuffre in 2001.

The BBC's Panorama aired a bombshell interview with the former "sex slave" who alleges she was trafficked by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and made to have sex with Prince Andrew three times in 2001 and 2002 when she was 17 years old.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not going to spend much time on this sordid tale of power, privilege, and a reason for my cousins in the UK to let the British monarchy take care of itself financially, with no public monies used to support their life styles, ever, ever again.

I am just going to politely suggest to Prince Charles, that his "raison d'etre", to be participating in any way in British governmental affairs, should be remanded to the dustbins of history, and British, and monarchies of other countries, live on their own means; after all, your citizens have to do it, why not them?!?

And hey, if Google is right on this, or even approximately right, Prince Charles' mom is worth the following:

"Her Majesty, who has worn the crown since 1953, lives the life of the ultrarich but is nowhere close to being one of the wealthiest in the world—or even her United Kingdom. The Queen's nine-figure net worth—estimated at $500 million—lands her way below the 2,153 billionaires on Forbes' list this year"

$ 500 million a year?!? Somehow, with just a little frugality, one could actually imagine that the British royals could actually manage to live reasonably comfortably on that, when they inherit.

NEW JERSEY BILL WOULD ALLOW CUSTOMERS TO OPT OUT OF SMART METER TECHNOLOGY, UNDERMINE FEDERAL PROGRAM

SOURCE: TENTH AMENDMENT CENTER

TRENTON, N.J. (Dec. 3, 2019) – A bill filed in the New Jersey Assembly would allow utility customers in the sate to opt-out of installing “smart meter” technology on homes and businesses. Passage of this bill would enable New Jersey residents to protect their own privacy, and it would take a step toward blocking a federal program in effect.

A bipartisan coalition of three assemblymembers introduced Assembly Bill 5884 (A5884) on Nov. 14. The legislation would create an option for New Jersey utility customers to opt-out of any utility company smart meter program with no penalty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fortunately, Mike and I live in a portion of Indiana, where the retrofit of housing into housing with "smart meters" would offer one heck of a headache to our power countries, in terms of them having to gouge customers for the uptick in costs.

Many of these utilities are, additionally, publicly owned, so there is going to be a great fuss, if one of the suits running one of these companies, is looking to force-march consumers to do this.

There are advantages to "living in the place where time forgot...but in a good way>!" :-)

Realizing that all of their previous efforts to “win” the war on drugs had failed, the feds came up with what they considered was a brilliant idea, but one that actually has turned out to be one great big crooked and corrupt racket that forcibly takes money out of the pockets of law-abiding citizens and puts it in the coffers of state cops and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, in direct contravention of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment.

AS THE OPCW IS ACCUSED OF FALSE REPORTING U.S. PROPAGANDA JUMPS TO ITS HELP

An international organization published two false reports and got caught in the act. But as the false reports are in the U.S. interests a U.S. sponsored propaganda organization is send out to muddle the issue. As that effort comes under fire the New York Times jumps in to give the cover-up effort some extra help.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) manufactured a pretext for war by suppressing its own scientists’ research:

OPCW emails and documents were leaked and whistleblowers came forward to speak with journalists and international lawyers. Veteran journalist Jonathan Steele, who has spoken with the whistleblowers, wrote an excellent piece on the issues. In the Mail on Sunday columnist Peter Hitchens picked up the issue and moved it forward.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) This is precisely how the Deep State in this country, works; by selective editing, coupled with outright lying, and misappropriations of data, which were supposed to make it appear that the Syrian government had gassed its own people, in order to raise sympathy for a more direct US role in Syria against it, Bellingcat hoisted with its own petard, and lost.

KEEPING UP WITH CHINA: US NAVY ORDERS $22 BILLION WORTH OF SUBMARINES

SOURCE: CNN.COM
The US Navy on Monday awarded its most expensive shipbuilding contract ever, more than $22.2 billion worth of the world's most advanced submarines.

The massive contract for nine nuclear-powered, Virginia class attack submarines comes just months after the head of the US Navy in the Pacific warned of a massive Chinese naval buildup and his trouble in getting enough submarines to counter it.

The deal "marks the US Navy's latest response to China's growing military power and aggressive actions in the Western Pacific," said Carl Schuster, a former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center.

"The PLAN (Chinese Navy) is getting better and larger so the US Navy has to respond," he said. "It doesn't make China an enemy, but China's actions do bear watching."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem here is, the US military seems to have to struggle to at least "keep up" with advances in Chinese weaponry; and the question I have to ask is, why is it that we are not light-years ahead on this issue?!?

The answers to this question are complex, and deserve to be addressed, both by any corporate head of the military/industrial complex, and by the Pentagon itself.

It is a known fact that all military industrial complex companies contribute intensely to both parties, as the Presidential campaign kicks into gear.

But unfortunately, as the old saying goes, familiarity...breeds contempt.

And because the leadership of these war-centric corporations frequently play golf with the President, and are on a first-name basis with him, they feel that it ultimately doesn't matter if the equipment they produce is shoddy; antiquated upon delivery; and have the cost overruns from hell, that the President, and our military, should constantly accept "less than", when it comes to great weaponry design, because, after all, they put our President intol a financial position which made it possible for him to win the election.

That has got to change, and what we need is legislation to prevent any of the military industrial complex to donate one dime to either candidate in the national elections.

Then, there should be a clause written into any contract for any weaponry the military should like to buy, that if the product doesn't deliver, on time, and as advertised upon delivery, then the heads of those corporations need to be charged with a military-application specific intellectual and industrial treason, tried by a jury of their peers, convicted, and serve their sentences in a non-club Fed.

Draconian?!? Hell, yes. But as those of you who occasionally read my posts understand, I abhor war as a way with which to resolve geopolitical differences. That being said, when our military goes to war, it should not be with less than utterly stellar equipment, which the military industrial complex has generally not been able to provide.

But I will almost bet you; the first corporate executive charged and convicted under this category of crime, will be a great "inspiration" for those who will follow them into positions of leadership in this industry.

KAMALA HARRIS’ DECLINE BEGAN WHEN TULSI GABBARD BLASTED HER IN JULY DEBATE

SOURCE: PAUL JOSEPH WATSON
A PredictIt chart shows that Kamala Harris’ presidential odds began to plummet immediately after Tulsi Gabbard destroyed her in a July Democratic presidential debate.

Harris announced that she was quitting the campaign trail today citing financial problems. Her campaign had also been beset by inner turmoil.

However, another primary reason for Harris’ fall was undoubtedly a confrontation she had with Gabbard in the second presidential debate on July 31.

During that exchange, the Hawaii Congresswoman blasted Harris for her record during her time as Attorney General of California when she put “over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

A PredictIt chart shows that Harris’ presidential odds cratered and never recovered following the clash.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Tom Perez, DNC Chair, a word, please:

1. Biden will crater when all the facts of "Ukrainegate" become apparent to the general public, and info on this is starting to flow like a tsunami on steroids.

2. Warren will crater, because of her lies about never sending her kid to a private school and her numbers on Medicare for All, which just will not add up, particularly if the US government keeps going on with these economy-crippling, hegemonic wars.

3. Sanders will crater, because he is a socialist, and this country is not ready to go there.

4. Bloomberg will crater on his record, and just in general being a son-of-a-biped. He an Hillary, most probably tie on an "unlikeability" rating.

5. Hillary is a two-time loser, who is sure to crater her candidacy should she get the nomination, and has more baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot.

So, who at the end of the day, do you have left?!? Buttiguieg, and Gabbard, period, end of discussion.

We both know that candidates for the office of the Presidency are created, not born.

So sir, if you have some horse-sense, you will talk to the DNC propaganda machine, and get some kind of Gabbard/Butteguig ticket together, way before the convention process starts, so that these two will have at least a chance of possibly winning against President Trump.

Otherwise, the Democratic party will fail spectacularly, again, next November, from self inflicted wounds, as Trump has done precisely what his corporate sponsors, the Deep State, and the Military/Industrial complex, have wanted him to do.

Tom, you have a little time to fix this, but not much; so please, get working to see what will appeal to the "huge center" in this country, which is neither rabidly conservative, nor rabidly liberal.

Unless there is a miracle, the Electoral College will give the election to President Trump, so now is the time to insure that will not happen.

IG Horowitz Ready to Exonerate RussiaGate Plotters After Over 1 Year Of Stalling, Reports Suggest

Horowitz has stalled for around 15 months and now it looks like he's going to release some chicken feed to the public by giving the Russia-gate conspirators a stern talking down to while exonerating them of all criminal wrongdoing.

Could have told you the Deep State would never turn on its own. AG William Barr, 'fixer' for Poppy Bush, co-conspirator in the Iran-contra and the Mena, Arkansas drug running operation could never prosecute Deep State criminals without potentially exposing himself to his own misconduct.

The Fix is in. Now, the question is: has Trump been in on the scam from the beginning. If the answer is 'yes'; millions of innocent patriotic American lives are at stake. Our country is on the precipice.

"Grab Some Red Bull & Code": Israel's Bizarre Appeal For A 'Worldwide Hackathon' To Free Iran

"This is going to sound insane," Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett introduces during a social media message on Iran published Saturday. He explains that Iran blocked internet access after mass anti-government and economic grievance-driven protests spread to some 100 cities over the past weeks.

"Most social media sites in Iran are still banned as we speak," he notes, while also describing a typical young Iranian's frustration at being prevented from logging in. He then calls for a all programmers and techies to unite for a “worldwide hackathon” to free the Iranians from their regime-imposed internet ban.

“So, here is a crazy idea. How about every techie in the world — Israelis, Arabs, Iranians, Americans, Europeans and everyone else unite for one purpose: to help the long-suffering Iranian people gain open access to all social media. A worldwide hackathon for freedom,” Bennet says.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett, a word, please; this not only sounds insane; it is insane.

What if critical hacks interrupt the work of medical devices in hospitals, and people die from this?!? Because if something like this happens negatively, as a result of these hacks, you have already stated that Israel will be the miscreant Middle-Eastern meddler who brought this about.

How much misery do you intend to cause the people of Iran, just because you don't like it's leadership?!?!?

Sir, you have just telegraphed what certain IT people in Israel and beyond may be prepared to do to bring Tehran down; I would like to politely suggest that Iran has some very excellent coders as well, and that such a hack will be ultimately repulsed by some very smart Iranians.

Heavy Gunfire Erupts as DR Congo's Anti-UN Protests Continue

TEHRAN (FNA)- Gunfire rang out in the DR Congo town of Beni on Monday as protesters demanding the United Nations' withdrawal from the city again marched towards the UN headquarters.
Security forces blocked hundreds of demonstrators attempting to get close to the UN compound housed inside the airport near Beni, one of two UN bases in the area, Al-Jazeera reported.

"We still have heavy gunfire here and local sources are confirming the deaths of two people, including a young boy and a woman," said Al-Jazeera's Alain Uaykani, reporting from Beni, quoting officials from the hospital where the bodies were taken.

"They are saying they don't feel safe and the UN has to leave. They say they will not stop protesting until the UN leaves this area," Uaykani added.

Anger erupted last week over the perceived failure of UN peacekeepers to protect civilians from deadly rebel attacks with several mass demonstrations targeting UN facilities in Northeastern f(DRC).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the UN peacekeepers are unable to keep the peace, why are they there?!?

IF we take a look at DNC's natural resources, we will get information on why it is such a prize, and worth much blood and money, to those who could control it:

"To date, more than 360 cases and claims of citizens against the US government have been considered," Esmaily said, noting that one court had demanded $130 billion from the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frankly, I would not hold my breath, were I an Iranian solicitor, about collecting on such claims.
