Some of Khashoggi's killers received training in US: WaPo report

Some members of the Saudi hit team that killed Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi in his country's consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul received training in the United States, according to a new Washington Post column.

Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), entered the building on October 2, 2018, to obtain documents necessary for his forthcoming marriage. He was killed inside the consulate by a team of Saudi operatives in what has been described as a "premeditated murder".

His body is yet to be found.

According to the reporting by Washington Post's David Ignatius, which included interviews with more than a dozen US and Saudi sources who requested anonymity, some of the special-operations training that members of the hit team received in the US might have been conducted by Tier 1 Group, an Arkansas-based company.

GANTZ BLAMES NETANYAHU FOR RABIN ASSASSINATION

Blue and White Party leader Benny Gantz accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday night of incitement that led to the assassination of then-prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.

Speaking with Channel 12’s Meet the Press program, Gantz was asked about a taped conversation revealed by Channel 13 last week, in which he said Netanyahu would harm him physically if he could.

US support enabled Saudis to brutalize journalist Khashoggi: WP columnist

A senior journalist writing for the Washington Post has revealed more details about the gruesome killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a diplomatic mission in Turkey in October, saying those who carried out the assassination had been trained in the United States.

David Ignatius cited US and Saudi sources in his column published on Friday as saying that some members of the Saudi Rapid Intervention Group that was sent to Istanbul to deal with Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in the city had received training in the US on special-operations capabilities.

“The CIA has cautioned other government agencies that some of this special-operations training might have been conducted by Tier 1 Group, an Arkansas-based company, under a State Department license,” said Ignatius while citing the sources.

10-year-old girl dies after classroom fight

A 10-year-old girl has died two days after she was injured in a fight with a fellow pupil at her primary school.

RaNiya Wright was found unresponsive by staff at the Forest Hills Elementary School in the South Carolina of Walterboro, after she got into an altercation with another Year 5 student on Monday.

They called the emergency services and RaNiya was taken to hospital where she remained alive, until she passed away on Wednesday.

The other student involved in the fight, who has not been identified, has been suspended from the school, according to NBC News.

“Because this is an ongoing investigation, we ask that the community understands that the information we can share is limited,” district officials said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Condolences to the child's parents and family; but what I am curious about, is why these kinds of incidents generally happen in US public schools, not at Montessori, Kumon, or Waldorf schools?!?

And what about the moral values of the family of the ten year old who killed her?!? Is killing your schoolmate something that the family of the accused might feel was OK?!?

IF our Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, wants to make education in this country on a par with that of Asia, or Scandinavia, she had better start privatizing education, both for the reason of lowered violence, and better education.

Unionized teachers will scream, because Private school teachers get less money than they do; but the outcomes they provide for their students are, generally, quite a bit lower than those of private schools.

Saudi Arabia on Course for Record Number of Executions in 2019

With 43 people already executed in Saudi Arabia in the first few months of 2019, the kingdom is well on its way to setting a new record for the greatest number of executions in a year, according to reports.

Of the 43 executed so far, 21 were beheaded for drug offenses, while the remainder were put to death for crimes including treason, renouncing Islam, adultery, murder, burglary, rape, espionage and terrorism, according to the Gulf Times.

Should the Riyadh maintain its present rate, experts have projected that a whopping 172 executions will have taken place by the end of 2019 — the highest total recorded in Saudi Arabia since human rights groups first began tracking the data in the early 2000s.

?According to Business Insider, the 43 recorded executions in 2019 took place between January 1 and March 13, with the most recent beheading involving a Syrian man who was condemned to death for smuggling amphetamine pills.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump should just love this; he likes big numbers, particularly when perpetrated by the Butcher of Yemen, one of his two BFFs in the Middle East and the other being the Butcher of Gaza, Prime Minister of Israel.

It appears that the Butcher of Yemen has embraced "Code Napoleon" for this, in which the suspect is guilty, until proven innocent.

I have never been in a Saudi courtroom, but I would bet that the conviction rate here, is very close to 100%

Report: Saudi Airstrikes Kill at Least 50 Houthis in Yemen’s Maarib Province

According to the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, a series of Saudi-led airstrikes targeted the Maarib Province on Monday, killing at least 50 members of the Shi’ite Houthi movement.

The attacks centered on Serwah District, the last district in oil-rich Maarib that is under the control of the Houthis. It’s unclear who the targeted Houthis were, and there is no report of substantial fighting in Maarib recently.

This once again reflects the general Saudi military strategy in Yemen, which is to fall back heavily on an air war. Using airstrikes anywhere and everywhere has often meant a substantial increase in civilian casualties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if Saudi citizens are "entertained" with a "body count" in Yemen on their daily news, stating how many Yemenis have been massacred in this bloody genocide; in fact, I am rather amazed that the Butcher of Yemen (aka Prince Bin Salman), has not decided to carpet bomb the place and "get it over with."

But in light of the futility of the last 4 years of fighting (during which the US military has aided and abetted Saudi war crimes in Yemen), it will most probably be his next option.

It is an unhappy realization, but the people, and countries with the money to spend, generally murder who they want, with impunity, and get away with it; Saudi Arabia, the Unhinged, Surveilled state of America, and Israel, all fall into those ranks.

Maduro Allegedly Foils US Assassination Plot Against Him That Used BofA Funds 

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Saturday said the country's special forces have thwarted a plan to assassinate him, directed by the opposition’s leader Juan Guaido, reported Agence France-Presse.

"The North American imperialism wants to kill me. We have just exposed a plan to kill me, which was personally led by the devil’s puppet [Guaido]," Maduro told thousands of supporters in Caracas, noting that government prosecutors had made significant progress in investigating the "terrorist plot."

Trump's CIA Now Unbound And Back To Its Traditional Hijinks

Authored by Wayne Madsen via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

Under the directorship of torture and black site maven Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s Central Intelligence Agency has returned to its traditional roots of conducting “black bag” operations and disrupting electrical grids through cyber-attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been profoundly disappointed in Haspel's having been nominated, and confirmed, as head of the CIA; President Trump knew what an "interesting piece of work she was", professionally, yet put her name into consideration, and she got confirmed anyway.

Taking down Venezuela's electricity grid, if in fact the US did it (and at this point, given the lust for Venezuela's oil reserves our leaders want to control, I think it points to a US plot) is absolutely an act of war.

Unfortunately, however, I am concerned that the mayhem may continue in many other formats, until the current Maduro government resigns, and Gaido's US puppets are "anointed" as Venezuela's "true government"

Russia has stated, incontrovertibly, that they will "protect their interests" in Venezuela.

At the worst of it, we may see war break out between Russia and the US government forces, at some time in the near future, which would be horrific in the extreme; and I say this, because at this point in their history, the American military doesn't have the weaponry; the manufacturing, the money, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome in such a war.

Hamas marks anniversary of its founder’s assassination

Hamas yesterday celebrated the 15th anniversary of the assassination of Sheikh Ahmad Yassin, the founder of the movement, vowing to continue the path of resistance until the liberation of Palestine.

In a statement issued yesterday, Hamas said: “We will continue the resistance path of Sheikh Ahmad Yassin. Resistance is a legitimate right guaranteed by all religious and international law, in the forefront of which is armed resistance, which is a strategic choice to protect and regain Palestinian rights.”

The statement also said that Yassin put the issue of prisoners on top of Hamas’ agenda and exerted much effort to liberate them.

“Hamas now bears this responsibility and will not let the Israeli occupation continue to inflict suffering on our prisoners,” the statement said, stressing that it would use all means necessary to liberate those prisoners held by Israel.

THE WORK OF MARK LOMBARDI

Eight months before an idiot son of the Bush crime family “won” election for president…

A year before Osama bin Laden became famous for 9-11…

Mark Lombardi, who had just achieved a major breakthrough in his career as an artist, reportedly hanged himself in his Brooklyn studio.

His art form?

Drawing intricately detailed diagrams of the relationship between the Bush family and its allies, the Bin Laden family, and other global criminals.

If there are people who commit political murders and then stage them to look like suicides – and there are – don’t you think that it’s quite a coincidence than Aaron Swartz – a very positive, resourceful, and intelligent young man who was co-owner of a major social media network – died the very same way, “suicide” by hanging in New York City.

It’s all just a big coincidence.

The Ex-Model Who Claimed Silvio Berlusconi Hosted Satanic Rituals in His House Died From “Apparent Poisoning”

Imane Fadil was a Moroccan ex-model who became a celebrity after becoming a key witness in the 2013 “Rubygate” trials which accused the media mogul and ex-Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi of “child prostitution”. Fadil was also looking to be a witness in a related investigation (dubbed “Ruby ter”) that is still ongoing.

In 2018, Fadil claimed in an interview that Berlusconi’s infamous “parties” lead to dark, satanic rituals. She was also in the process of writing a tell-all book about Rubygate and the dark secrets of Berlusconi. The name of the projected book was quite evocative: I Met the Devil.

Facebook "Explains" Why It Failed To Remove Christchurch Shooter's Gruesome Livestream

Though Facebook's AI-powered censors managed to "mistakenly" flag Zero Hedge as a repeat violator of the social network's "community standards", when it comes to livestreamed videos depicting horrific and extreme violence, the company is still working out some kinks in its ability to immediately identify and remove livestreams depicting horrific acts of terror and violence like the video published Friday by the Christchurch Shooter.

In a blog post mea culpa published Thursday, Facebook's VP of Integrity Guy Rosen explained why the company failed to immediately remove the horrifying livestream of the attacks that the shooter, a 28-year-old Australian who also published a manifesto laying out his violent, islamophobic ideology, posted to Facebook Live, and which was viewed 4,000 times before being taken down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Facebook even HAS a "VP of Integrity"??!?

U.S. MERCENARIES ARRESTED IN HAITI WERE PART OF A HALF-BAKED SCHEME TO MOVE $80 MILLION FOR EMBATTLED PRESIDENT

MOST OF THE Americans arrived in Port-au-Prince from the U.S. by private jet early on the morning of February 16. They’d packed the eight-passenger charter plane with a stockpile of semiautomatic rifles, handguns, Kevlar bulletproof vests, and knives. Most had been paid already: $10,000 each up front, with another $20,000 promised to each man after they finished the job.

A trio of politically connected Haitians greeted the Americans when their plane landed around 5 a.m. An aide to embattled Haitian President Jovenel Moïse and two other regime-friendly Haitians whisked them through the country’s biggest airport, avoiding customs and immigration agents, who had not yet reported for work.

It was too good a deal for the band of semi-employed military veterans and security contractors to turn down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

these men are lucky that they escaped with their lives, considering the current tone and timbre of Haitian politics right now.

Looks like this op went "mammary glands up", and in a very spectacular way.

RON PAUL: IS TRUMP REALLY ABOUT TO ATTACK VENEZUELA?

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the United States?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could get amazingly ugly, in light of the fact the Russia has said that it will "protect its interests in Venezuela", which was a non-subtle way of Putin promising that if US military goes in with a decap strike against Caracas, they will be met, force for force.

Mr. President, President Putin is a guy who keeps his promises, and were I you, I would not want to second guess him on this.

War with Russia over Venezuela's proven oil reserves?!? Right now, if I were a betting woman, I would not bet against it.

I would like to hope that there is an adult in the bowels of power in DC who has the horse-sense to talk President Trump out of such an action; unfortunately, however, the people around him right now, including Pompeo and Bolton, those recycled neocons who never saw a potential war in which they didn't want the US to engage, want this to move forward.

Mr. President, please; this fight, between the US and Russia over Venezuela's oil, could be catastrophic, and put the US economy into even more of a tailspin than it already is; and Mr. President, every economist I have read, indicates that we are headed into a recession about which you will not be able to do much.

Please consider that, as you and your minions march into the coming election cycle in 2020.

Why did Obama and Clinton economic adviser, 58, take his own life despite having a new book coming out in June?

The suicide of Alan Krueger, a former Obama and Clinton adviser who killed himself this weekend, has shocked the worlds of politics and business where he was universally revered.

Krueger, 58, had a new book coming out in June and was still a member of faculty at Princeton University in New Jersey.

He lived at home with his wife Lisa, with whom he has two children, Benjamin, 28, and Sydney, 26. He is survived by them, his elderly parents and siblings.

The family confirmed that he killed himself in a statement that was released by Princeton on Monday but no further details surrounding his death have emerged.

10 MORE CHRISTIANS KILLED LAST WEEKEND IN NIGERIA BRINGING TOTAL TO 140, MEDIA STILL SILENT

Another 10 Christians were killed by jihadists in Nigeria last weekend, bringing the total number of Christians killed in the country to 140 since February 10.

Reports indicate that another 10 Christians were murdered in Nigeria on Saturday, March 16, as religious violence in the country continues to reach fever pitch. This brings the total number of Christians murdered to 140, with an additional 160 homes destroyed in the violence.

Morning Star News reported:

Muslim Fulani herdsmen killed 10 Christians in southern Kaduna state, Nigeria on Saturday (March 16), bringing the lives lost in the past five weeks to 140 with 160 houses destroyed, sources said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People in countries where they can practice their religion without getting hurt or killed, need to take into account how lucky they are.

Top US General Denies Plans to Leave 1,000 Troops in Syria

US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joe Dunford issued a statement Monday denying weekend media reports that the US plans to leave around 1,000 troops in Syria, saying the reports are “factually incorrect.”

Dunford presented the current planned “residual force” as 200, saying that this hadn’t changed since February. The US announced 200 would stay on February 21, but on February 22 officially increased that number to 400.

It’s not clear from Dunford’s statement where the “incorrect” aspect of the new report, which came out of a Wall Street Journal, exists. That report suggested that the 1,000 figure was not yet finalized, but was being discussed. Dunford’s comments didn’t include any details on what is actually being discussed, but just that nothing was finalized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think the multiple troop numbers being given, are simply a way of creating confusion about how many US troops the US does have in Syria.

Interpol Issues Red Notices to Detain Saudi Suspects in Khashoggi Case - Reports

The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has issued red notices to locate and provisionally arrest 20 nationals of Saudi Arabia, who are believed to be linked to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the NTV broadcaster reported on Thursday.

The red notices were issued on 1 March at the request of the Istanbul Prosecutor's Office, the Turkish media specified.

The journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who worked as a columnist for The Washington Post newspaper and was a vocal critic of Saudi policies, went missing on 2 October after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

US AIRSTRIKE WIPES OUT ALLIED AFGHAN BASE IN 'FRIENDLY FIRE' INCIDENT

In the latest bizarre story to come out of the US "endless war" in Afghanistan, American warplanes obliterated an allied Afghan military post in an act of "self defense" on Wednesday.

The incident took place in the tribal Uruzgan province of south-central Afghanistan and reportedly began when a joint convoy of US troops and Afghan Special Forces came under fire by another unit of Afghan ground troops in what appears a major instance of accidental friendly fire resulting in a devastating two dozen total casualties on the Afghan side.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a "Jean Luc Picard "facepalm", at warp speed, upon reading this; why, in the name of heaven, has our military, on both the intelligence and operations levels, devolved to "the gang that can't shoot straight"?!?!

GUNMAN KILLS 49 IN NEW ZEALAND MOSQUE SHOOTINGS

A white man in his 20s was taken into custody after killing 49 and wounding dozens more at two Christchurch mosques, reports the BBC. Authorities described him as an "extremist right-wing terrorist"; he live-streamed one of the attacks on the internet.

The attack, which came around the time people were attending the mosques for Friday prayers, was the deadliest in the nation's history.

A gunman live-streamed footage of his rampage to Facebook, filmed with a head-mounted camera. The footage showed him firing indiscriminately at men, women and children from close range inside the Al-Noor mosque.

Police called on the public not to share the "extremely distressing" footage online. Facebook said it had removed the gunman's Facebook and Instagram accounts and was working to remove any copies of the footage.

He's been named by some media as Brent or Brenton Tarrant. A 74-page anti-immigration manifesto posted online and attributed to the killer rants about "white genocide".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers of comfort and strength for all who were affected by this horrible crime.

But again, I want to ask, and I hope that the New Zealand PD takes a good, hard look at this; was the shooter on any kind of SSRI medication at the time these atrocities happened?!?

And just in case anyone has a question about this, the only "power" I advocate, is "peaceful, logical people-power", where people collaborate to get things better for this entire world:-)

Artists understand this; and we sure as heck wish that the rest of the world understood it also.

This has also triggered a childhood memory. When I was in a public elementary school in Burbank, there were tests and quizzes which I took, which asked for a designation of race; my response was always "human".

And I think that is a good thing for all of us to hang on to right now; because, at the end of the day, we are all brothers and sisters, walking this road we call life, together.

Neighbors describe hail of bullets that killed Gambino boss Frank Cali

Neighbors on Staten Island recalled on Thursday hearing the terrifying spray of gunfire that took down Gambino crime boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali.

The reputed mobster, 53, was shot dead just outside his Todt Hill mansion around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday — as his wife and young children were inside.

“About 9 last night, we were watching TV and we heard, ‘Pop! Pop! Pop!’ I thought it was fireworks,” said Fred Guinta, who lives directly behind Cali’s home in the quiet, upscale neighborhood. “My wife said, ‘Those are gunshots!’ It was six or eight shots.”

The gunman ran over the bleeding Cali — who was still alive — with his blue pickup truck before fleeing, sources said.

US REGIME CHANGE BLUEPRINT PROPOSED VENEZUELAN ELECTRICITY BLACKOUTS AS ‘WATERSHED EVENT’ FOR ‘GALVANIZING PUBLIC UNREST’

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
THE US-FUNDED CANVAS ORGANIZATION THAT TRAINED JUAN GUAIDO AND HIS ALLIES PRODUCED A 2010 MEMO ON EXPLOITING ELECTRICITY OUTAGES AND URGED THE OPPOSITION “TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION…TOWARDS THEIR NEEDS”
BY MAX BLUMENTHAL
A September 2010 memo by a US-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaido and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as “a watershed event” that “would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate.”

The memo has special relevance today as Guaido moves to exploit nationwide blackouts caused by a major failure at the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant at Guri dam – a crisis that Venezuela’s government blames on US sabotage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now Americans know; this is textbook, and with US diplomats out on their collective ear by the weekend, expect the next chapter of this brutality to unfold close to that point in time.

There is a video from the daily mail which will haunt me for all my days; it is that of a mother, carrying the body of her dead daughter, because no hospital had the electricity to treat her, and were all shut down.

And DAMMIT, NO, Mike Pompeo, President Trump, or John Bolton, do not EVER let me hear you describe this situation as one of collateral damage; the blood on your hands, from this manufactured crisis, is and ultimately will be enough to drown oceans.

WOMAN ACCUSED OF ASSASSINATING KIM JONG UN'S BROTHER HAS BEEN FREED

Following the decision in Siti's case (the two women are facing separate cases though they are jointly on trial), a lawyer for Huong also requested an acquittal. The trial has been suspended until Thursday to allow time for the Malaysian attorney general to make a decision.

After her release, Siti, clad in a black traditional Malay dress and headscarf, was rushed to the Indonesian embassy, where she gave a brief statement to the media.

"I feel so happy. I did not expect that today I would be released,” she said, adding that she had been treated well in prison.

The two women told authorities that they thought they had been hired to participate in a reality TV show prank, and that they didn't realize what they had been tricked into doing until it was too late.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remote assassinations have to be done in a way which completely exonerates the real perpetrators, and have to go precisely to plan.

That is what failed here; and that makes this moment one of the most clumsily-created political assassinations in North Korea's history.

This kind of remote political assassination, to consolidate one's power, as Kim Jung Un has pretty obviously had done, are considered a big, fat, hairy no-no in the 21st century, save for the assassination of Adnan Khashoggi and The Clinton Body Count

US CONGRESSMEN CALL FOR SAUDI TO RELEASE DETAINED DUAL CITIZEN

Senior US Congressmen have called for the Saudi Arabian authorities to release dual citizen Walid Fitaihi, who has been detained and tortured in Saudi prisons.

In a joint statement issued on Thursday by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, lead Republican Michael McCaul and Chairman Eliot Engel said that Fitaihi must be released. “We are deeply concerned by reports that Dr Walid Fitaihi, a dual US-Saudi citizen in Saudi custody, has been tortured,” the statement read.

They added: “Allegations like this are stunning and the reported lack of due process [in Saudi Arabia] is completely unacceptable. Torture and coercion of all prisoners must end.”

Concluding their statement, the Congressmen said: “We call on Saudi Arabia to immediately release Dr Fitaihi and allow him to travel outside Saudi Arabia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, we all understand that Saudi Arabia is a brutal place, with no true Constitution, and is run by the Butcher of Yemen, who understands, at least in theory, what human rights laws are, but doesn't want them introduced into his country, at least not while his regime is still in power.

But what is it about this guy, which makes him so valuable to Saudi Arabia?!?

It looks as though what he has done, is raise the level of health care in Saudi Arabia, for many of the people who would otherwise not have care.

This is what he says in his English bio:

"Affiliation
International Medical Center

About:
My mission in life is to improve the quality of health care in the Middle East through founding the International Medical Center (IMC) @theimcjeddah, and ensuring that it truly represents a major paradigm shift in health care delivery in the region."

Did he open his mouth and say something which infuriated the murderous Crown Prince bin Salman, who then gave the order to have him arrested and tortured?!?

Unfortunately, it appears to me that whatever this guy did, he did an industrial-strength job of pissing off the Prince; and these acts of torture will continue against other prisoners, until either Bin Salman dies, or is deposed by a bunch of very, VERY angry Saudis.

And President Trump, where, please, the hell are you in this case?!? Can you not plead, personally, for this guy?!?

I mean, after all, the Butcher of Yemen is one of your BFFs in the Middle East, right?!? Do you not think he wouldn't listen to you, if you called him?!?

US FIRM RETURNS $400M FUND TO SAUDI ARABIA OVER KHASHOGGI MURDER

A Beverly Hills-based talent agency, Endeavor, has returned a $400m investment fund to Saudi Arabia and cancelled its contract with the kingdom over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the New York Times reported.

The fund was given to the firm's chief Ariel Emanuel during a high-profile Hollywood party last spring, which brought together Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), Disney chief executive Robert Iger and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, among others.

The money was meant to fund the growth of Endeavor and diversify the kingdom's economy through the agency's work in various industries, including sports and film production.

But following the murder of Khashoggi, the firm returned the fund, protesting the murder, and effectively ending its relationship with Saudi Arabia, according to two NYT sources with knowledge of the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Say what you want; but to do this, for that eye-popping amount of money, is amazing; my hat is off to these folks, who decided that personal and social responsibility meant more than just collecting millions off of a billionaire with no conscience or heart.

Bravo, well done, all!

Babies killed after Israeli army prevents fire-brigades from entering Hebron

Two Palestinian infants were killed in a fire after the Israeli military prevented fire brigades from reaching them on time in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

The two children, a toddler believed to be 18 months old and his younger sister burned to death after a fire that broke out in their homes.

The Mayor of Hebron said the Israeli military is responsible for the death of the infants.

Hebron’s fire chief said a call was received at 10:35 on Thursday night of a fire breaking out in a house in the old town of the occupied city.

Ayman Nasser Eddin said two fire trucks were immediately dispatched to the scene but were kept from passing through two different army checkpoints.

After the the fire trucks were finally allowed through the checkpoints 20 minutes later the 18-month old boy was already dead and his younger sister was unable to be saved.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What kind of monsters will not allow help for two infants, burning slowly to death, in agony?!?

Stories like this, and more, in the independent press, has definitely lead to a US drop in favor of Israel.

Sorry Mr. Pence, The Venezuelan Military Aren't Rubes

We all know that this coup attempt by the US and Guaidó failed because we all saw the anti-Maduro thugs on the Colombia-Venezuela border throw a tantrum when they realized their error. Once these CIA stooges realized the trucks of aid weren’t crossing the border they just decided to burn them and blame it on Maduro (which has also failed).

But why did it fail?

In the weeks leading up to the latest coup, multiple US officials spoke publicly (and privately) to members of the Venezuelan military urging them to turn on the Bolivarian Revolution. For the sake of simplifying this argument, let’s focus in particular on the promises made by the Vice President of the US, Mike Pence.

Finnish "Soldiers Of Odin" Announce Hunt For Rapists & Pedos In Controversial Video

Authored by Emma R. via The Voice Of Europe,

The Finnish Police investigates a video published recently in social media by the vigilante group ‘Soldiers of Odin’ that announces a “hunt” for rapists and pedophiles.

The video, which is subtitled in English and Arabic, and has since been deleted from both Facebook and Vimeo, shows a group of masked men dressed in dark, armed with bats and chains march onwards to the camera amid winter darkness, accompanied by heavy metal music.

One of them, who acts as a spokesperson, announces that “The pedophile hunting season has been opened!”

The speaker points out that their target are the “sex tourists who have invaded our country” and “hunt our children”. And explains that the Soldiers of Odin are going to take justice into their own hands, since “the authorities and the politicians do nothing”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sorry, but when did the Europhiles NOt see this coming, in infettered, and unchecked migration from countries where such practices are the norm?!?

And I will make a prediction; other organisations in other European countries will start to create movements like this, if the authorities remain useless in finding, trying, and convicting the people who have done harm to their mothers, their sisters, and their cousins.

Was Conservative Comedian Terrence K. Williams Nearly A Victim Of Kamalicide?

Terrence K. Williams, a conservative African American comedian, was on his way to meet President Donald Trump at the White House for a Black History month event when he nearly died in a serious car wreck. He was riding a Lyft when the vehicle crashed into the railing on a bridge. He's currently in the hospital with his neck nearly broken. Some are finding the whole matter rather suspicious for a few reasons.

Who are the “Brutal Dictators”?

Elected Presidents Assad and Maduro are not the brutal dictators. We are.

We are the ones imposing economic warfare, and regime change wars on non-belligerent countries. We are the ones supporting terrorists who impose the death penalty on hundreds of thousands with our weapons, our command and control, our mercenaries, our air support and our terror bombings.

We are dictating our will by destroying these and other countries, by changing “regimes”, by setting up non-democracies throughout the world.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really irks me, from Iraq to Afghanistan to Yemen, is the US government's willingness to be involved with war crimes, in order to get what they want accomplished, no matter the bloodshed, no matter the pain.

I remember, as a kid, swallowing whole the notion of how the US was always "the good guy" in international politics; but growing up, with the hideousness of the Vietnam War, and other endless military interventions after that, in Chile; Central America; Afghanistan; Iraq; Yemen; and Somalia, how in the name of all that is decent, can one talk about the US government as "the good guy internationally, with a straight face?!?

I sure as heck can't.

The pattern is painfully obvious; regime change; pacify the citizens of the regime changed government (most generally at the point of a gun or knife); have US-centric countries expropriating the resources of the conquered country; and only selling those resources in US dollars.

Wring, wash, repeat.....

But I predict that there will ultimately a point.... where the US will find itself in a position where they can no longer mow across whole continents with its military machines with which to do this.

Unfortunately, the only two ways of stopping this are... a complete economic collapse of this country, or a world war in which the US government loses its shirt. And by the way, I hope that neither of these two outcomes come to pass; but unless the US government changes its behaviour, those in the Bowels of Power in DC, had better get their bunkers in order; this could be one terrible mess!!

UN Council: Israel Intentionally Shot Children and Journalists in Gaza

Officials say killings are part of Israel's 'obligation'

Israel is furious at the UN Human Rights Council most of the time, but they are particularly furious whenever the body offers a report, as Israel tends to violate a lot of human rights. In this case, the council has announced an “independent inquiry” into the protests at the Gaza border.

Every Friday, for months now, Palestinian protesters have rallied near the Gaza border to protest the Israeli blockade. Every Friday, Israel shoots a large number of people. The investigation ruled that there are “reasonable grounds” to believe Israel violated international law.

The report noted that 154 out of 183 people killed by Israel in that time were entirely unarmed. They noted Israel had repeatedly, deliberately shot children and journalists, as well as disabled protesters. International law, needless to say, frowns upon those sorts of deliberate killings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What in the name of heaven motivates heavily armed IDF members to assassinate Palestinian kids?!?

Where is doing this protecting the citizens of Israel?!?

The only understanding which I can come to, is realizing that in maiming and assassinating Palestinian kids, the IDF is taking away as much of the Palestinian future away from their families as they can: it is just...that...simple.

INDIA BOMBS PAKISTAN, SAYING IT TARGETED TERRORIST CAMPS IN CROSS-BORDER AIR RAID

An Indian minister claimed that the country’s aircraft made a successful bombing run against terrorists on the Pakistani-controlled side of Kashmir. Pakistan said the Indian jets “released a payload” while fleeing.
“Air Force carried out aerial strike early morning today at terror camps across the LoC [Line of Control] and Completely destroyed it,” the minister of state of agriculture, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, tweeted on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, not a word about the civilian casualties here.

Dear Lord, I am hoping (and praying) that SOME adult in the room in the bowels of power, is working the phones between New Dehli and Islamabad, and trying to get this under control before a real, nuclear confrontation happens here.

As you understand, both nations are nuclear-armed; China has a degree of military support for Pakistan China says military ties are the backbone of its relationship with Pakistan, and under Obama, military ties with India were enhanced. US deepens defense ties to India with landmark agreement

So President Trump, and President Xi; please: if there is one time in you collective lives that you can do to ratchet down the tensions here, now, gentlemen, is the bloody time!!!!

The last thing both China and the US need right now is a proxy war between India and Pakistan, where allegiances may throw the US and China further at odds with each other, just at a crucial moment for trade talks, and force the hand of treaties into an acute dislocation.

Does anyone else out there remember the real cause of World War I?!?!? Because folks, we are looking at a "Sarajevo Moment", all over again.

The causes for World War I:
This article goes on to state: "World War one started on the 28th of July 1914 between two sides; triple alliance and the triple entente. It ended on the 11th of November 1918. Difference in policies were to blame, although the immediate cause of World War one was the assassination of Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The war started mainly because of four aspects: Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism and Nationalism."

And we now have all the same elements, threatening to break the world apart with another war, from which no country shall ultimately go unscathed.

Israel Pharmaceutical Firms Test Medicines on Palestinian Prisoners

Israeli Professor Nadera Shalhoub-Kevorkian revealed yesterday that the Israeli occupation authorities issues permits to large pharmaceutical firms to carry out tests on Palestinian and Arab prisoners, Felesteen.ps reported.

The Hebrew University lecturer also revealed that the Israeli military firms are testing weapons on Palestinian children and carry out these tests in the Palestinian neighbourhoods of occupied Jerusalem.

Speaking in Columbia University in New York City, Shalhoub-Kevorkian said that she collected the data while carrying out a research project for the Hebrew University.

“Palestinian spaces are laboratories,” she said. “The invention of products and services of state-sponsored security corporations are fueled by long-term curfews and Palestinian oppression by the Israeli army.”

In her talk, entitled “Disturbing Spaces – Violent Technologies in Palestinian Jerusalem”, the professor added:

Ahed Tamimi to be Honoured in South Africa by Mandela’s Grandson

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mengele would have applauded such studies; and for that, the leadership of the Israeli government and penal system, need to ask themselves some very heartfelt, moral questions about this practice, and retire it immediately.

I am sure that the drug companies are paying the Israeli government very handsomely for this process, and their "volunteers", who did not give their consent for this to happen; but at what moral cost to the Israeli and spirit?!?

US Moving Special Forces and Equipment to the Venezuelan Border

In a series of tweets posted in her twitter account a few hours ago Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs affirmed that the US government is moving special forces to the borders of Venezuela along with military equipment.

She also alerted that the same US government (and US companies) with the help of some NATO allies is seeking to buy arms and ammunition in east European countries to arm the Venezuelan opposition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is very rarely wrong, and if these accounts are correct, I see this as the prelude for a full-on US invasion of Venezuela.

Hispaniola Rising: How the US Coup in Venezuela Is Taking Root in Haiti and the Dominican Republic

For more than a decade Venezuela has aided the governments of Haiti and the Dominican Republic through a preferential system known as Petrocaribe, and the people of those nations are not taking their governments’ support for the US coup in Venezuela lightly.

As Judas betrayed the Son of Man with a kiss for 20 pieces of silver, the institutionally corrupt governments in Port-au-Prince and Santo Domingo have written another sad chapter in their nation’s history.

Ironically, it was Venezuela that helped to develop the island’s energy infrastructure in recent years. A key part of this is the REFIDOMSA oil refinery in the Dominican Republic which the Venezuelan government helped to develop and partially owns, and which has also been used to help alleviate increased fuel demands and shortages in Haiti.

REVEALED: Jamal Khashoggi's appeal for unity between Saudi and Iranian people

Jamal Khashoggi was working to promote reconciliation between the Saudi and Iranian people prior to his murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last October, Middle East Eye can reveal.

In an unfinished opinion article drafted early in 2018 by the exiled Saudi journalist in collaboration with a leading Iranian human rights activist, Khashoggi called for civil society organisations in both countries to be “voices of reason and moderation” even as their governments risked open conflict.

DESPITE 'WAR CRIMES' CONCERNS IN YEMEN, RAYTHEON NABS $1.6 BILLION ARMS DEAL WITH UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) just inked billions in deals to secure new weapons from top Pentagon contractor Raytheon a week after an Amnesty International investigation further implicated the Gulf nation in war crimes for transferring Western weapons to unaccountable militia groups, thereby deepening the humanitarian crisis and fueling carnage in war-ravaged Yemen.

"Emirati forces receive billions of dollars' worth of arms from Western states and others, only to siphon them off to militias in Yemen that answer to no-one and are known to be committing war crimes."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would be great to live in a country which has never, and will never, stoop to creating war crimes, the way the US and Saudi Arabia have colluded to do in Yemen, where an active, ongoing genocide continues, about which we Americans get to hear very little.

FORMER CIA OFFICER EXPOSES CLINTON CHARITY FRAUD AS BIGGEST SCANDAL IN US HISTORY

Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate. She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business."

"The shocking thing about that is all the former directors of the CIA that have come out to support her, from Clapper to Brennan to Morell to Robert Gates supporting her being elected, knew about this criminal syndicate. Comey was protecting it. Lynch was protecting it. Weissmann was protecting it. And that is the big why. What’s she got on these people? Are they financial ties? They had to be aware of this, especially the counter-intelligence units. We know it was hacked into by foreign intelligence services because it was just hanging out there. Hillary Clinton was running a secret server outside the Department of State for the purposes of laundering money through the criminal Clinton Foundation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The monied seldom eat their own; I would be willing to wager that the "Gruesome Twosome" will ultimately pass at a ripe old age, without ever being questioned again on this money laundering scheme.

Haiti continues to be gripped by civil unrest and mass protests demanding that President Jovenal Moise step down over charges of corruption and and rampant inflation under his watch — yet unlike similar unrest happening hundreds of miles due south of the small Caribbean country in Venezuela, Washington has stood in support of the president. Starting Thursday the US State Department urged all American citizens out of the country and issued a no-not-travel advisory due to "crime and civil unrest".

SEVEN KILLED IN KASHMIR GUN BATTLE DAYS AFTER DEADLY ATTACK

Srinagar, India-administered Kashmir - At least seven people, including two armed rebels and four Indian army soldiers, have been killed in an ongoing gun battle in India-administered Kashmir.

The gun battle on Monday in Pinglan village of Pulwama district comes days after 42 Indian security personnel were killed in a suicide blast - the worst such attack in 30 years of Kashmir conflict, which has raised fears of confrontation with archenemy Pakistan.

A senior Indian army official told Al Jazeera that the operation against the rebels was launched early on Monday following intelligence inputs about their presence in a house in Pinglan village.

"In the encounter, two militants and four army soldiers have been killed. The operation is still in progress," the official said, adding that the identity of the rebels was being ascertained.

"Among the slain soldiers is a top army officer," he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, to Pakistani President Arif Alvi, and Indian President Ram Nath Kovind, please cool your collective jets here. You both know what the Kashmiri people need and want, to prevent this from happening, hopefully ever: the long-promised, but never delivered referendum, to give the Kashmiri people the right to decide if they wish to stay with India; join Pakistan; or become an independent country.

Both of you leaders are Presidents of countries which are members of the UN, where one of the most cherished principals enshrined in their Declaration of Human Rights, is the right to Peaceful Self-determination. The Universal Right of Self-Determination

President Trump, please, you have to work the phones with Indian President Kovind (we have a security agreement with India, as you know) and Chinese President Xi Jinping, please work the phones with Pakistani President Alvi (China has been a very strong builder of defense systems with Pakistan.)

Please, Presidents Trump and Xi: the last thing in the world the world needs right now, is a (literal) explosion of tensions between these two nuclear-powered neighbors.

India's PM Modi warns Pakistan of strong response to Kashmir attack

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned Pakistan on Friday to expect a strong response to a suicide attack that killed 44 paramilitary policemen in Kashmir, ratcheting up tension between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

The car bomb attack on a security convoy on Thursday was the worst in decades of insurgency in the disputed region. India said it had “incontrovertible evidence” of Pakistani involvement, a statement quickly rejected by Islamabad.

“We will give a befitting reply, our neighbour will not be allowed to de-stabilise us,” Modi said in a speech, after meeting security advisers to discuss options.

The attack comes months before national elections in India.

The Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility soon after a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a bus carrying police personnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Other reports from the region, seem to indicate that New Dehli is seriously thinking about starting an economic war against Pakistan, particularly if such attacks continue (and trust me, they will continue, unless and until, the Kashmiri people finally get their long-deserved referendum, to permanently determine its status).

Here is the following article giving credence to this possibility:

India to remove trade privileges, and insure a complete financial isolation of Pakistan

And other stories about the case, brought together by antiwar.com:

Kashmir suicide bomber radicalised after beating by Indian troops, parents say

Jaishe-e-Mohammad; the Pakistan-based militants at the heart of tension with India

China has a strong defence understanding with Pakistan:

If someone is not able to call off this potential war between Pakistan and India (Sergei Lavrov, white courtesy telephone, PLEASE!!) the US and China may well wind up in this mess also, with China backing Pakistan, and the US backing India against China and Pakistan. I would like to hope that some light of reason will dawn on the leadership of both countries, but it is hard to see where this will come from right now. A war between both nuclear-armed countries could create an absolutely horrific - and irreversible - future for both of them.

  US COMPANY THAT SMUGGLED WEAPONS INTO VENEZUELA LINKED TO CIA RENDITIONS

Two executives at the company that chartered the U.S. plane that was caught smuggling weapons into Venezuela last week have been tied to an air cargo company that aided the CIA in the rendition of alleged terrorists to “black site” centers for interrogation. The troubling revelation comes as Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has rejected a U.S. “humanitarian aid” convoy over concerns that it could contain weapons meant to arm the country’s U.S.-backed opposition.

Last Tuesday, Venezuelan authorities announced that 19 rifles, 118 ammo magazines, 90 radios and six iPhones had been smuggled into the country via a U.S. plane that had originated in Miami. The authorities blamed the United States government for the illicit cargo, accusing it of seeking to arm U.S.-funded opposition groups in the country in order to topple the current Maduro-led government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CIA "front operations" go back a long time.

Many years ago, my late Dad worked for a CIA-Front airline, titled (and I am not kidding on this) Slick Airways, which was first stationed in the Hollywood/Burbank Airport, but moved to San Francisco Airport when I was about 13. I remember that dad never mentioned who owned the airline, originally founded by Earl Slick, or what kind of work they did, but told me that it was primarily used for "cargo transport", just like this one mentioned in the article above.

AT LEAST 70 CIVILIANS KILLED AS US COALITION POUNDS SYRIAN VILLAGE - REPORTS

Syrian media have repeatedly reported on US-led coalition strikes, which have led to countless civilian casualties and damage to crucial infrastructure in the Arab Republic. The coalition has been bombing targets in Syria since 2014 despite never obtaining a UN mandate and not obtaining Damascus’ approval.

At least 70 civilians were killed or wounded as a result of air strikes launched by a US-led international coalition on the Syrian village of Baghuz in the south-east of the country, Syria state television reported, citing local sources.

Syrian media have continually reported on the death of civilians which were killed in US-led coalition strikes. The coalition regularly carries out airstrikes in Deir ez-Zor region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, I love my country, but abhor its current leadership. And as a Christian Pacifist Activist, never advocate for violence.

And this is why, as completely and intelligently as possible, I have to channel my upset about these policies which create these endless wars, into articles which, hopefully and peacefully, will get other people reading and thinking about this, and talking to their alleged Congressional Representatives, as to why this country is bound up in so many military conflicts on this planet?

Is it because, in the long run, it is cheaper to destroy potential economic rivals than learn to compete against them?!?

Unfortunately, Mr. President, I am afraid that this is the path that the US Deep State - and the corporations they represent - have enforced upon you.

President Trump, you are so on the wrong side of history, to still be authorizing bombing strikes in Syria, and abetting and aiding the Saudis in their genocide of Yemen, I hardly know where to begin.

And where the hell is Congress on these immoral, unstoppable wars which, according to our Constitution, can only exist if Congress approves of them, and which, in the cases of both Syria and Yemen, they did not approve of these wars.

Your campaign rhetoric bears absolutely zero relationship with your actions of the last couple of years you have been in office.

Have you been subsumed by the mechanism of the American Deep State, that you are no longer running the country, but they are, and sometimes, in direct contradiction to what you have said is happening, or will happen?

Mr. President, color me very concerned about your foreign policy trajectory,
which could lead to a world war and total devastation of this planet.

Rothschilds Murdered at Least Seven US Presidents

A curious but very credible Internet document called “The Mardi Gras Secrets“ states that Illuminati agents poisoned and killed Presidents William Henry Harrison (1773-1841) and Zachary Taylor (1784-1850). They also poisoned James Buchanan in 1857 but he survived. All three were obstructing Illuminati- House of Rothschild plans for the US Civil War (1860-1865).

The document also describes the Illuminati role in the murders of Abraham Lincoln (1865) and Senator Huey Long (1935). We know they also killed Presidents Garfield (1881), McKinley (1901) and Kennedy (1963) and probably Warren Harding (1923) and possibly FDR (1944).

The Mardi Gras Secrets website was created in Dec. 2005 by Mimi L. Eustis, the daughter of Samuel Todd Churchill, a high level member of the secret New Orleans Mardi Gras Society called “The Mystick Crewe of Comus.”

Saudi-led coalition in Yemen launches a targeting operation in Sanaa

CAIRO (Reuters) - The Saudi-led coalition in Yemen launched a targeting operation in the Houthi-held capital, Sanaa, Saudi state TV reported on Saturday.

The operation targeted a location for storing and preparing drones and launch vehicles in Sanaa.

The coalition added that the operation conformed to international law and that measures were taken to protect civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice the cold, almost clinically detached, tone of the reporting.

And notice also, no images of the attack,with carnage raining down from the skies; and no mention of the number of civilians maimed for life or killed, many of them just infants and toddlers.

And that last statement "The coalition added that the operation conformed to international law and that measures were taken to protect civilians.", was simply cosmetic, to "save face" for when local first responders get to the site, and try, desperately, to untangle the living from the dead.

So Yahoo and Reuters, here is what life looks like in Yemen, courtesy of this Saudi-generated, US-enabled war against this country: (warning: very graphic images)

Images:
Dead, dying, and maimed for life kids, courtesy of US-enabled Saudi Bombing Runs

Images: Yemeni children dead, or dying of cholera, possibly weaponised, and with water resources deliberately destroyed by US-enabled Saudi military

Images of Yemeni children dying from malnutrition, because a US and Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports.

President Trump, I would have never thought for a moment, when you were campaigning, that you would continue to sign off on US aided and abetted Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and yet, you absolutely appear to have utterly no moral qualms whatsoever, about the assassinations of the innocent here, not to mention that your good friends in the weapons industry, are making such a killing, both literally, and financially, through this grinding war.

To the American Congress, which is the only body in the US government which can legally declare war, you must, lawfully, and peacefully, reclaim your power in this regard.

It is high time for both a very public, peaceful conversation about this Saudi-led, US-abetted war to happen, followed through upon, with veto-proof legislation Congress passes to get our contribution to this horrific genocide ended.

US Airstrikes Kill 15 in Somalia; General Warns Airstrikes ‘Not Enough’

AFRICOM claims al-Shabaab was trying to 'illegally tax' civilians
Jason Ditz Posted on February 8, 2019Categories NewsTags AFRICOM, Somalia
US African Command (AFRICOM) has reported that airstrikes against targets in Somalia have killed at least 15 “fighters” from al-Shabaab. Both strikes were in the Lower Shabelle region, with 11 killed Wednesday and 4 killed Thursday.

These are the latest in an ever-growing number of strikes inside Somalia. The US strikes have increased substantially in the past few years, and this year’s bombings have been even more frequent than the last year.

Following the strikes, AFRICOM head Gen. Thomas Waldhauser warned the Senate that despite the escalations, airstrikes were “not enough” to defeat al-Shabaab, and that Somalia’s local forces need to get more deeply involved in the conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder, at what point General Waldhauser will call for "more American troops" in Somalia, if these air strikes continue to be "not enough."

SAUDI ARABIA ACCUSED OF HELPING CITIZENS CHARGED WITH RAPE & CHILD PORN TO FLEE 8 US STATES

Saudi Arabia appears to have been systematically helping its US-based citizens to evade American justice for serious crimes, possibly by providing fake passports and private planes.

Late last year, the Oregonian reported five cases of suspects successfully fleeing charges in the state of Oregon, which was temporarily home to about 1,000 students from Saudi Arabia. But the same news outlet has now discovered a total of 17 cases across eight states and even Canada, suggesting the ploy is an established practice.

Most of the cases involve a similar scenario: after an arrest, the Saudi consulate hires a legal team and eventually posts bail, which in two cases constituted $1 million and $500,000. Once the suspect is released, even if they had surrendered their international travel passport, they somehow manage to leave the country, before then appearing back in Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; you need to have a conversation with your BFF, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, about this; because understanding that this has gone on right under your nose, is making you look like a fool to the rest of the world.

The only other option I can think of here, is that because it hasn't mattered that much to you and your agenda with Saudi Arabia, you have decided to let these little murders and rapes go as un-noticed as long as possible.

CIA and FBI Had Planned to Assassinate Hugo Chávez

Now we have a bit more evidence the CIA and the FBI connived with reactionary elements to not only briefly overthrow Chávez, abolish the constitution and the National Assembly, but later assassinate the Venezuelan State Prosecutor, Danilo Anderson. He was killed by a car bomb in Caracas on November 18, 2004, while investigating those who were behind the coup. Giovani Jose Vasquez De Armas, a member of Colombia’s right wing paramilitary group called the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, claims he was in charge of logistics for the plot to kill Danilo Anderson. Vasquez De Armas told the Attorney General’s office that those planning the killing, “all discussed the plan with the help of the FBI and CIA.”

‘Assassination Guide’ Directed at German Populists Posted on Antifa-Linked Site

Calls for the assassination of several major figures in the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD), including detailed instructions on how to do so, have been found on a web platform linked to Antifa far-left extremists.

The post was made on the infamous “Indymedia” web platform that has long been used by far-left extremists in Germany and called for the murder of several AfD MPs, including co-chairs Alexander Gauland and Alice Weidel, Tichys Einblick reports.

Under the title ‘The AfD and the election campaign!’ the post calls on Antifa members to examine the dates of AfD public appearances and study maps of venues to escape once they have finished their assassination.

CNN ADMITS: SAUDI ARABIA SUPPLIES WEAPONS TO AL-QAEDA IN YEMEN

The Saudi-led coalition provided US-made weapons to al-Qaeda-linked fighters, Salafi militias and other factions taking part in the intervention in Yemen, in violation with their agreements with the US, according to a CNN investigation.

The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America’s sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones,” CNN reported.

According to the investigation, Saudi Arabia and the UAE used the US-made weapons to buy the loyalties of militias or tribes, bolster chosen armed actors, and influence the complex political landscape.

However, by handing off the military equipment to third parties, the Saudi-led coalition is in breach of its agreements with the US, according to the US Department of Defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That old statement "the enemy of my enemy is my friend", only goes so far, and apparently, no one from the Pentagon was looking at these deals when they went down.

But what amazes me, was that it was a CNN team doing the reporting; one has to wonder if this lone story was a bid for sympathy, in light of the reality that they lost their "credibility battle" years ago.

TALIBAN LAUNCH DEADLY ATTACKS AS THEY ATTEND AFGHAN PEACE TALKS

The Taliban has killed at least 47 people in separate attacks in Afghanistan, despite the beginning of peace talks with Afghan officials in Moscow.

The armed group launched a pre-dawn attack on an army base in northern Kunduz on Tuesday, killing 26 members of the security forces, Mohammad Yusouf Ayubi, head of the provincial council said.

There were at least 23 soldiers and three members of the local police force among those slain.

According to Ayubi, 12 troops were wounded in the Taliban onslaught, which lasted for over two hours until reinforcements arrived at the besieged base and the attackers were repelled.

"Day by day, the security situation is getting worse in and around Kunduz city," said Ayubi, adding there are fears the city could again fall into the hands of the Taliban as it did briefly on two occasions in recent years - in September 2015 and in October 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder, logically: were these actually Taliban, if what they are looking for in Moscow is peace?!?

Or were they forces determined to attempt to insure that US and NATO troops stay?!?!

Peace talks and simultaneous attacks?!?

Forgive me, but this just doesn't make sense.

ELECTION WILL NOT STOP US FROM BOMBING GAZA AND IRAN, INSISTS NETANYAHU

Israel’s Prime Minister said on Sunday that the General Election campaign would not stop his government from bombing the Gaza Strip or Iran, Anadolu has reported. The election is due to be held in April.

“If calm is not maintained in Gaza, Israel will not hesitate to move against it even during the election period,” Benjamin Netanyahu told his weekly Cabinet meeting. “I [also] have a message to the tyrants in Tehran: Israel will continue moving overtly to protect its future.”

The Israeli occupation authorities continue to fear any Palestinian retaliation for the Israel Defence Forces’ ongoing aggression and killing of unarmed demonstrators taking part in the Great March of Return protests along the nominal border between the Gaza Strip and Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's translate that" Netanyahuese" from that 2nd paragraph, and the sentence " Israel will continue moving overtly to protect its future.”

What Netanyahu really means here, is "We will bomb the crap out of your country, with the help of our American and Saudi "friends" leaving hundreds dead and dying, regime change the country, and never let you have a say as to how you want that country run, because the West will "impose" a governmental structure for you which suits their needs, both economically, and geopolitically.

Remember that 'Shah guy' the West imposed on Iran after deposing its legitimately elected President, Mohammad Mosaddegh?!? It will be something like that, only... worse!"

You're welcome, Mr. Prime Minister; thanks for letting me clear that one up for you!!

Turkey: West protecting Khashoggi killers in return for benefits

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu yesterday accused Western countries of covering up for the killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in return for arms deals with Saudi Arabia.

Speaking at a municipal gathering in Istanbul, Cavusoglu said the Saudi authorities had to admit to the murder because of the transparent policies followed by Turkey.

“But where is the body? This person was killed but his body cannot be found? What did they do with it? The Saudi attorney-general spoke of a local collaborator; who is the local collaborator?” Cavusoglu said.

“If you have a local collaborator, what is his name?” he added, noting that the Saudi attorney-general had said that the Saudi authorities will send a portrait of what the collaborator is suspected of looking like to Turkey.

Erik Prince Denies Knowledge Of Blackwater-Type Training Base In China

A Hong Kong-Based training company launched by Blackwater founder Erik Prince is reportedly building a training center in the controversial Western Chinese region of Xinjiang according to Reuters, citing a company statement from Prince's Frontier Services Group (FSG).

While the exact details of the $600,000 (4 million yuan) project weren't disclosed, a state media report said that the facility will be able to train 8,000 people a year.

Despite being the founder, Executive Director and Deputy Chairman of FSG, Prince says he had "no knowledge or involvement" in the preliminary memorandum for the base, according to Reuters.

A Hong Kong-based spokesman for FSG told Reuters on Friday that the statement was “published in error by a staff member in Beijing” and had been taken off FSG’s website.

The removed statement had said that FSG signed a deal with the Kashgar Caohu industrial park in Tumxuk city in southern Xinjiang to build a training center.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Erik Prince denying that he is developing a training facility in China, it probably means that he is doing just that.

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT’S LOVE OF FOREIGN DICTATORSHIPS

Lest anyone be tempted to believe that President Trump and other U.S. interventionists are intervening in Venezuela because of some purported concern for the Venezuelan people, let’s examine just a few examples that will bring a dose of reality to the situation. This latest intervention is nothing more than another interventionist power play, one intended to replace one dictatorial regime with another.

Egypt comes to mind. It is ruled by one of the most brutal and tyrannical military dictatorships in the world. The U.S. government loves it, supports it, and partners with it. There is no concern for the Egyptian citizenry, who have to suffer under this brutal tyranny and oppression.

Saudi Arabia also comes to mind. It too is a brutal and tyrannical dictatorship, also a murderous one. The U.S. government loves it too, supports it, and partners with it. There is no concern for Saudi citizens who have to suffer under this brutal tyranny and oppression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is never the people of a country the US regime changes who matter; it is always about the money and the resources.

Do you think for one moment, that the US is concerned about the people of Venezuela, rather than its proven oil reserves?!?

Of course, not!!

 YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE NY TIMES’ SUPPORT OF US-BACKED COUPS IN LATIN AMERICA

On Friday, The New York Times continued its long, predictable tradition of backing U.S. coups in Latin America by publishing an editorial praising Donald Trump’s attempt to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. This will be the 10th such coup the paper has backed since the creation of the CIA over 70 years ago.

A survey of The New York Times archives shows the Times editorial board has supported 10 out of 12 American-backed coups in Latin America, with two editorials—those involving the 1983 Grenada invasion and the 2009 Honduras coup—ranging from ambiguous to reluctant opposition. The survey can be viewed here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many of the op-ed writers for the NY Times are invested in the military/industrial complex.

This pathetic attempt to overthrow the legitimately elected President of Venezuela, to date, has proven itself to be an epic fail, to date, with Venezuela's military still standing strong behind Maduro.

Unless and until that changes, Venezuela's "regime change" will just be another pipe-dream for the American Deep State, which will respond by sulking off into a corner, and nursing its geopolitical wounds; that is, of course, until it thinks it has the strength to fight another day, with another coup somewhere on the planet.

U.S. COURT FINDS SYRIA RESPONSIBLE FOR KILLING AMERICAN JOURNALIST MARIE COLVIN

A FEDERAL JUDGE in Washington, D.C. has ordered the Syrian government to pay $302 million in damages for the murders of journalists Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik in a 2012 artillery strike. The decision, issued on Wednesday, marks the first time in the seven-year conflict that a court has declared Syrian forces loyal to the government of President Bashar al-Assad responsible for deliberately attacking civilians.

“A targeted murder of an American citizen, whose courageous work was not only important, but vital to our understanding of warzones and of wars generally, is outrageous, and therefore a punitive damages award that [multiplies] the impact on the responsible state is warranted,” wrote Judge Amy Berman Jackson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That same bit in that last sentence, should hold just as true for US journalists and bloggers here at home, as it is for reporters abroad.

And she, and the photo journalist with her, had to know that they were operating in a war zone; made the choice to be there; and unfortunately, suffered the consequences.

But what I am seeing here is more demonization of Syria, whether or not this event actually happened, and regardless of whether it can be proven true. It may well be, but that is not the point.

I think that those in foggy bottom are waiting to see what the overnights looked like on this issue, in their quest to martial support for yet another Syrian engagement, even though that may mean fighting Russians on the ground, or in the air, neither choice being a wise one, right now.

We understand by now, that demonization, plus sanctions, are the tell-tale preludes to.... the US military's attempting to kick another country's military right in the proverbial shins.

This would be one of the most vulnerable of all moments to attempt to even be contemplating a US war with Russia on the ground in Syria, and I say this as someone who cares deeply about the current trajectory of the US's foreign and domestic policies.

And the reasons I am saying this are pretty self-evident; our military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money, or the manufacturing to ensure a positive outcome for a US war against Russia in Syria, or anywhere else, for that matter.

Colombia Witnesses Murder of 17th Social Leader in 2019

A Colombian Campesino leader Dilio Corpus Guetio, 44, who was a member of Asocordillera (Mountain Area Association of Campesino Workers) and also a member of the local Campesino Guard militia was shot to death Tuesday.

Corpus Guetio left his home in the municipality of Suarez in the department of Cauca, in southwest Colombia, at around six in the morning for work. On the way armed men from a car shot him several times.

“The murderers were in a van which hit him and made him lose control of his bike. At that point, they got out of the car to get close to Dilio, who was already injured and he was shot repeatedly, killing him,” said a representative from the United National Federation of Agricultural Unions (FENSUAGRO).

Studies for Development and Peace, Indepaz, say that within the 29 days of 2019, 16 social leaders have been killed in Colombia, excluding Corpus Guetio.

A picture and its story: A boy injured in clashes in Gaza

More than two weeks after a projectile struck Mohammad An-Najjar’s right eye during a Gaza border protest, the 12-year-old boy has only just learnt that he will never see through it again.

Lamia Abu Harb said that Palestinian medics told her that her son may need a glass eye.

The doctor who treated Najjar told Reuters that his retina was damaged beyond repair in the Jan. 11 incident, the aftermath of which was captured on camera by Reuters photographer Ibraheem Abu Mustafa.

As the clashes between Gaza protesters and Israeli troops intensified, Palestinians said Israeli soldiers fired towards protesters, who hurled stones at them and rolled burning tires at the border fence.

Switching between lenses for distance shots and close-ups, Abu Mustafa began taking images. Some protesters covered their faces with T-shirts to protect against tear gas as some others ran away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Until a global BDS movement gets its legs, children like Najjar are going to continue to risk violence and death.

I would imagine that the IDF soldier who shot him, is cursing himself (or herself) for not aiming that shot lower....lower enough to have stopped the kid's heart.

And I would like to remind Israel's Knesset of the late President Kennedy's cogent, and almost prophetic, observation: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."

THE MAKING OF JUAN GUAIDÓ: HOW THE US REGIME CHANGE LABORATORY CREATED VENEZUELA'S COUP LEADER | THE GRAYZONE

Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaidó. Only a few months ago, the 35-year-old was an obscure character in a politically marginal far-right group closely associated with gruesome acts of street violence. Even in his own party, Guaidó had been a mid-level figure in the opposition-dominated National Assembly, which is now held under contempt according to Venezuela’s constitution.

But after a single phone call from from US Vice President Mike Pence, Guaidó proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela. Anointed as the leader of his country by Washington, a previously unknown political bottom dweller was vaulted onto the international stage as the US-selected leader of the nation with the world’s largest oil reserves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Having been banned from leaving the country, Juan Guaidó may well be tried by the Maduro regime for treason, and either shot, or executed in an other manner, before he has time to fully account for how this US-centric imposter came to power.

MEXICO IS STARTING TO LOOK LIKE VENEZUELA

In a way that almost sounds ridiculous.

But oil thieves have been drilling holes in Mexico’s extensive network of oil and gas piplelines across the country to steal fuel and sell it on the black market.

State-owned oil company PEMEX found more than 12,500 illegal holes in the pipelines last year.

And these oil thieves went as far as building a 2-mile long pipe themselves to divert oil directly from the refineries.

Selling oil on the secondary market is a highly lucrative business in Mexico. And some farmers who take up a job as lookouts for the thieves can earnmore than five times their regular income doing so.

The work is also incredibly dangerous… more than 80 people recently died in a pipeline explosion north of Mexico City when they were trying to siphon off gas.

But Mexico’s new president has decided to do something about this.

And in typical, political brilliance, he ordered the pipelines to be shut down.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How can it be that someone so pig-ignorant of basic economics get themselves elected to high office?!?

Of course, people in this country have no room to talk about crooked elections; in 2016, we had one candidate who had more geopolitical baggage than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot, and the other, a man brilliantly adept at invoking the rage of those who got left behind, economically, when their jobs in this country were offshored or outsourced, but turned against them, once president, in a complete, and utterly devastating transformation into an Israeli-centric warhawk, threatening Russia, Iran, and China, all in the same breath.

International spies target watchdog that revealed Israel software was used to hack associates of Jamal Khashoggi

The researchers who reported that Israeli software was used to spy on Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s inner circle before his gruesome death are being targeted in turn by international undercover operatives, The Associated Press has found.

Twice in the past two months, men masquerading as socially conscious investors have lured members of the Citizen Lab internet watchdog group to meetings at luxury hotels to quiz them for hours about their work exposing Israeli surveillance and the details of their personal lives. In both cases, the researchers believe they were secretly recorded.

Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert described the stunts as “a new low.”

Martin King's last sermon 'Why America may go to Hell' polarizes Americans’ choice: either .01% arrests for Crimes Against Humanity annually killing millions + looting trillions OR earn life in Hell

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“And I come by here to say that America, too, is going to hell if she doesn’t use her wealth. If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God’s children to have the basic necessities of life, she, too, will go to hell.” ~ Martin King, 1968

The King Family civil trial verdict is the US government assassinated Martin. The family’s conclusion is that US government “leaders” acted to prevent King’s occupation of Washington, DC beginning that summer until the Vietnam War was ended, with those funds redirected to end domestic poverty.

Martin was to deliver his sermon Why America may go to Hell that Sunday. We don’t know the content Martin would have chosen, but we do know the Vietnam War was lie-started and Orwellian-illegal, and within context of ongoing US rogue state empire extending to our world of the present.

US FOLLOWS UKRAINE, SYRIA ROADMAP IN VENEZUELA REGIME CHANGE PUSH

Since the decision of the Trump administration on Wednesday to recognize a member of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaidó, as an unelected “interim president,” the situation in the South American country has become increasingly tense, with efforts to force the current government of Venezuela — led by Nicolás Maduro — out of power having grown in intensity over the past few days.

Despite the enormous pressure his government faces from both local and international sources, Maduro has managed to maintain his position thanks to a combination of factors. These include the loyalty of the country’s well-armed military, in addition to popular support from Venezuelans who recently voted for Maduro, as well as Venezuelans who may not like Maduro but prefer him to a politician hand-picked and foisted upon them by the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On that last statement, you can bet your sweet bippy it will happen, if this regime change attempt does not go as planned!

China and Russia have extensive investments in, and in co-sponsorship of, many projects in Venezuela.

Do you believe that they won't protect those assets, if they see a move toward regime change in Venezuela? I'm afraid that the short answer here, is "HELL yes!"

These tweets are very big news. The mysterious murder of Seth Rich had been almost forgotten in Western Media, and Kim’s statements raise it back from obscurity, reminding everyone there remain several unanswered questions about the killing.

In light of the absurd arrest of Roger Stone, it might be time for President Trump to take action. Trump, after all, seemed to reference Kim’s role with a Tweet back in 2018:

UN BEGINS INQUIRY INTO KHASHOGGI MURDER

The United Nations Human Rights Office announced yesterday it is beginning an investigation into the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a statement, the UN said that an independent panel would seek to establish “the nature and extent of states’ and individuals’ responsibilities for the killing”.

The UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, said she would travel to Turkey next week to head an “independent international inquiry” into Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

British barrister Helena Kennedy and Duarte Nuno Vieira, a pathology expert and professor at the department of legal and forensic medicine at Coimbra University, Portugal, are among the team. Along with Callamard, they are to visit Turkey between 28 January and 3 February and plan to report to the UN Human Rights Council in June.

Callamard said that the findings will be raised at the UN rights office on 19 June.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury from the UN, signifying nothing; the responsibilities for the death of Khasshogi will be squarely placed on the "usual suspects" (underlings, with absolutely no power of decision making whatsoever), and the real blame against who most probably ordered the hit (most likely, the Butcher of Yemen, Crown Prince Bin Salmin and his cohorts in the White House), will be left , uncharged, in order to let Saudi Arabia and US continue their genocidal war in Yemen.

MEXICO’S MURDER RATE IS SO HIGH IT HAS ALTERED THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF MEN

The murder rate in Mexico is now so high it has altered the overall life expectancy of men living there. By analyzing cause-of-death data from the Mexican Institute of Statistics, researchers have discovered the staggering impact homicide is having on the nation—with the murder rate between 2005 and 2015 rising by 53 percent compared to the decade before.

A team from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that in the state of Chihuahua, 8,943 men between the ages of 15 and 50 were killed over 2010 and 2011. That’s nearly three times the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq between 2003 and 2006.

Life expectancy in Mexico has steadily increased since the 1940s. However, recent data indicates it has started to stagnate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many years back, (probably when I was playing with my pet sabre tooth tiger) I remember going to Ensenada, or Tijuana, and I always felt safe.

But at this time in history, I would absolutely advise against going there. The cartels rule the government of Mexico, and the government is impotent to stop the drug-related crime.

Of course, what would be logical here, would be for the US and Mexico to legalize drugs, to take the profit motive out of it.

Portugal has been very much the poster child for this working quite well.

Portugal's radical drug policy is working; why hasn't the world copied it?

I would like to remind you of what happened when Prohibition was launched here in the US. While well-intentioned, it simply drove the liquor business underground, allowed a whole criminal underclass to become absolutely filthy rich.

There has been a lot of conjecture for many years that President Kennedy's father, Joe Kennedy, was a bootlegger, which has never been thoroughly proven; but his dealings with foreign heads of state, remain documented. He took a trip to England right after the end of prohibition, to work a deal with Winston Churchill about liquor distribution, as he knew that Prohibition was ending soon.

Churchill's investment deal with Joe Kennedy shortly before the ending of Prohibition.

He clearly understood that money, in the US, translated the holder of that money to an elevated position, so he sought to "legitimize" the family dynasty to a point where one son, John Kennedy, became the President of this country, and the other, Robert Kennedy, became the US's Attorney General.

But I wish that President Trump had someone on his side ("A Trump Whisperer, perhaps?!?) who would explain to him that if drugs were legalized, it would rip the financial security of the drug cartels right out from under them.

Unfortunately, however, because banks so love to "launder" drug money, and people still can buy "financially legitimacy", not to mention, potentially, an occasional politician or two, moving from illegitimate businesses to legal ones, will only happen when pigs discover... that they are aerodynic.

Pentagon: Chinese Military Units Training With ASAT missiles

Chinese military forces have deployed multiple units armed with anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles that can destroy scores of American satellites, according to a Pentagon intelligence report.

The new report by the National Air and Space Intelligence Center, known as NASIC, revealed that People's Liberation Army units have begun training with the satellite-killing missiles.

The report warns that China, along with Russia, has developed an array of space arms designed to challenge U.S. space superiority. The report was made public last month.

The report for first time reveals that Chinese military units already are conducting training for space attacks with anti-satellites missiles. Russia also is developing a new anti-satellite missile the report said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then the question must be asked, and honestly answered; why is the US not ahead of China and Russia in these technologies?!?

What is almost so insestuous about the relationships between the military/industrial complex, and those corporations which provide their weapons, that the quality of weaponry keeps deteriorating, and costs for these programs are mushrooming out of control?!?

Israel must stop 'spontaneous' Syria strikes: Russia

Russia has urged Israel to stop its "spontaneous" airstrikes on Syria, days after the Israeli military carried out fresh strikes against targets near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Israel has repeatedly attacked Syrian government positions under the pretext that its attacking Iranian military advisers, who are in the country on a request from President Bashar al-Assad to assist the Syrian Army in their fight against foreign-backed terrorists.

"The practice of spontaneous strikes on the territory of a sovereign state, in this case Syria, must end," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Wednesday, according to Russia's TASS state news agency.

Zakharova (pictured below) said such moves by Tel Aviv only fueled tensions in the region and harmed the long-term interests of all regional players, including Israel itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zakharova can repeat that request ad infinitum, but it not going to make any change in Netanyahu's behaviour, and it appears that anything President Trump says, regarding creating a wider war in the region, is going in one ear, and out the other. Hubristic, imperious leaders cannot learn from their mistakes, so keep on making them ... until they are stopped.

History will not judge Netanyahu kindly, for all the foul-ups, bleeps, and blunders he has created for the Israeli people, and the future may not be kind in its recollection of him, or his tenure as Prime Minister.

EXPECT AN INCREASED SMEARING OF AMERICANS AS RUSSIAN ASSETS

SOURCE: THEMINDUNLEASHED.COM
After WikiLeaks documents provided irrefutable evidence that the Democratic National Committee had violated its charter by rigging its primary for Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders, what should have happened is this:

The DNC apologizing profusely to the public for violating the promises it had made to the electorate.
Massive, sweeping changes to bring transparency and public accountability to the DNC’s inner workings, including a complete overhaul of staff and leadership.
If at all possible, a complete do-over of the primary vote.
A dedication to attacking Trump’s right-wing policies from the left, showing the public that a progressive approach works better than a conservative one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Speaker Pelosi, a word, please.

Primary rigging,just in case this is a foreign concept for you, us utterly immoral, because at the end of the day, the People do not get a chance to fully express their political preferences, because at the end of the day, those preferences will be well and truly flushed by the DNC's vote rigging.

So what Americans have, at the end of the day, are two very carefully culled and chosen candidates who will continue the wars, make sure that the dictats issued by their corporate masters, are obeyed; that the military complex will be worshipped, with obscenely "fat" contracts, and change utterly nothing for
We the People, except to throw more regulative barriers in our way; 24/7 surveillance; and a tax code which virtually guarantees our continued poverty.

At this point, the American political process is a highly ritualized, Kabuki-like process where the monied get everything they want from the government, because that government represents only those are already monied, leaving you and me, my friends, thrown under the proverbial bus, without any meaningful choice in leadership, or true representation.

Shocking Admission By FBI Veteran Shows Why The FBI Shouldn't Exist

On the 18th of November, 1964, the FBI’s appallingly corrupt boss J. Edgar Hoover denounced Martin Luther King Jr. as “the most notorious liar in the country.” A few days later, a Hoover deputy named William Sullivan wrote King a letter posing as a disillusioned follower and using powerful, manipulative language to urge the civil rights leader to commit suicide before evidence of his extramarital affair became public. Enclosed was an FBI recording containing evidence of the affair.

Whenever America celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day we should remind ourselves that it is a known, undisputed fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation engineered a psyop to manipulate one of the world’s greatest minds into committing suicide. It is also worth reviewing the compelling argument for the case that the FBI was behind King’s assassination as well.

Adamowicz's Assassination Is Being Exploited To Politically Polarize Poland

Gda?sk mayor Pawe? Adamowicz of the Civil Platform (or PO) opposition party died after being stabbed in the heart by a deranged assailant at a charity concert on Sunday, who deceived security in order to get onstage and then give a crazed rant after the attack attempting to justify his crime on the alleged grounds that the mayor’s party wrongly imprisoned him.

All of Poland is mourning Adamowicz’s death and even his political rivals made speeches denouncing his assassination, but there are already some voices that are trying to make this into a partisan issue in order to score points ahead of this May’s European Parliamentary elections and besmirch the credibility of the ruling Law & Justice Party (also known by its Polish abbreviation as PiS).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The irony here, is almost painful; condolences to Adamowicz’s families and friends, and please, can we be just a little more civil as alleged "master ascendents" of the food chain on this planet?????

Murders in Mexico rise by a third in 2018 to new record

Murders in Mexico rose by 33 percent in 2018, breaking the record for a second year running, official data showed, underlining the task facing the new president who has pledged to reduce violence in the cartel-ravaged country.

Investigators opened to 33,341 murder probes compared with the previous year’s record of 25,036, according to information from the Interior Ministry published on Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Years ago, I would have felt very comfortable driving from Southern California down to Tijuana, or Ensenadas, but those days are over. The country has devolved into a narco-state, where the drug gangs run with impunity, and can pretty much get away with anything they feel like doing....including murder.

Israeli Election Ad Brags on Bombing Gaza Back to the Stone Age

Second ad for Gantz includes 'kill counter' related to 2014 Gaza War.

Running for parliament in the upcoming April vote, former Israeli Army Chief Benny Gantz has steered heavily into his military history, and large numbers of people killed and damage done in the 2014 Gaza War.

One of his videos focuses on aerial footage of a destroyed Gaza neighborhood, bragging that “parts of Gaza were returned to the stone ages,” and bragging the devastation led to “3-5 years of quiet.”

A second video for Gantz shows Palestinians attending funerals with a “kill-counter” prominently displayed, going up to 1,364, the number Israel reports to have killed in 2014. The video concludes “only the strong win.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wouldn't it be nice for any Israeli Presidential candidate to speak honestly, and reasonably, about how to engage Gazan Palestinians with real prospects for peace and financial betterment, rather than offer them only hate, and certain extermination?!?

Over 100 security killed in Taliban attack on Afghan military training center – reports

Taliban militants killed over 100 members of the Afghan security forces in an attack on a military compound in the central province of Maidan Wardak, Reuters reported citing a source in the military.
“We have information that 126 people have been killed in the explosion inside the military training center,” an official told Reuters. The government said earlier that 12 people had been killed, but declined to comment further.

A Taliban suicide bomber drove a car bomb into the base following a firefight between the militants and security forces, Afghanistan’s Pajhwok News reported. The attack took place shortly after 8am local time on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How many more good men and women in our military will have to die, before Trump finally gets that this is an insane war, a war where there are no military matrics possible to define as "having won this one"?!?!?

I have long stated that the US and NATO need to leave this country as quickly as safely possible, then negotiate with whatever is left of the government in Kabul for the oil pipeline leases; the rare earth minerals, and rights to the production of opium poppies.

And BTW, the following images of US troops protecting opium poppy crops in Afghanistan, are not photoshopped.

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

The above photograph was taken from inside the bathroom of the rooming house at 422 South Main Street, looking through the window through which James Earl Ray is supposed to have shot Dr. King. At the very top of the photo can be seen the balcony of the Lorraine Motel. A small green circle identifies the roof corner marked in the detail from the picture right after the shooting. From this vantage point, we can confirm that the angle from the bathroom window to where Dr. King was killed is nearly level, as is indicated by the dotted red line on the detail photo.

The evidence in the photo taken just moments after the assassination is unequivocal. The claim that the witnesses are pointing to the rooming house where James Earl Ray was staying is a complete fabrication. The gunfire came from another direction high above the bathroom window.

A Call To Reinvestigate American Assassinations

On the occasion of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a group of over 60 prominent American citizens is calling upon Congress to reopen the investigations into the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

Signers of the joint statement include Isaac Newton Farris Jr., nephew of Reverend King and past president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; Reverend James M. Lawson Jr., a close collaborator of Reverend King; and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, children of the late senator. The declaration is also signed by numerous historians, journalists, lawyers and other experts on the four major assassinations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

New investigations only give the government a chance to polish up the lies. We The People know we were lied to. That is enough. Now we must decide if we (and our children) should live with a government that lies.

We Need a Martin Luther King Day of Truth

As Martin Luther King’s birthday is celebrated with a national holiday, his death day disappears down the memory hole. Across the country – in response to the King Holiday and Service Act passed by Congress and signed by Bill Clinton in 1994 – people will be encouraged to make the day one of service. Such service does not include King’s commitment to protest a decadent system of racial and economic injustice or non-violently resist the U.S. warfare state that he called “the greatest purveyor of violence on earth.”

Government sponsored service is cultural neo-liberalism at its finest, the promotion of individualism at the expense of a mass movement for radical institutional change.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous,” warned Dr. King, “than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

COINCIDENCE? - CHIEF NURSE OF BRITISH ARMY WAS FIRST PERSON TO ARRIVE AT NOVICHOKED SKRIPAL SCENE

On March 4 2018 the British/Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found incapacitated on a bench in Salisbury. The British government asserts that they were affected by a chemical poison of the so called Novichok group. The case led to a diplomatic conflict as Britain accused Russia of an attempt to kill the Skripals. No evidence was provided by the British government to support those accusations.

Honor Dr. King? Then honor King Family civil trial verdict that US government are the assassins, and demand .01% arrests for murder + coverup. Your alternative: live under killers’ control forever, murdering all approaching Martin’s leadership

“We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.”~ Coretta Scott King, Martin's wife, King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

"We as a family have done our part. We have carried this mantle for as long as we can carry it. We know what happened. It is on public record... Any serious researcher who wants to know what happened can find out.” ~ Dexter Scott King, Martin's son and King Center CEO, remarks on the verdict

For ten years I’ve done what I can to publicly communicate the facts of the King Family civil trial verdict of US government guilt to assassinate Martin. The King Center documents the family’s civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassinating Martin in 1968.

The evidence of guilt is overwhelming:

US Airstrike Kills 23 in Eastern Syria, Mostly Fleeing Civilians

US airstrike targeted a group of fleeing civilians outside of the village of Baghouz in eastern Syria on Friday. The attack killed at least 23 people, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The majority of those slain were civilians, though there are reports that some of the fleeing people were ISIS members. Activists said they believe the majority had been displaced from nearby areas, and were fleeing again.

This comes amid the latest offensive by US-backed Kurdish forces against the three ISIS towns in eastern Syria, and the adjoining villages. These areas have been repeatedly attacked, lost and regained, and every time it leads to a number of displaced civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So.... allegedly, the US military is leaving Syria, but continues to bomb from the air, killing more civilians.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

BLOODY EVERYTHING!!

A LEADER MURDERED BY THE CIA

Why are there so few great African leaders?

It could be because so many of them have been assassinated.

The story of Patrice Lumumba, murdered by the connivance of US and Belgian intelligence agencies which then turned the Congo over to a savage dictator…to make it easier to loot the country.

Patrice Émery Lumumba was a Congolese politician and independence leader who served as the first Prime Minister of the independent Democratic Republic of the Congo (then Republic of the Congo) from June until September 1960. He played a significant role in the transformation of the Congo from a colony of Belgium into an independent republic. Ideologically an African nationalist and Pan-Africanist, he led the Mouvement National Congolais (MNC) party from 1958 until his assassination.

Damning new evidence that Dr Kelly DIDN'T commit suicide: The disturbing flaws in the official government story surrounding the death of Blair's chemical weapons expert

I have updated my book after being contacted by John Scurr, a world-renowned consultant surgeon specialising in vascular surgery – surgery on veins and arteries. He does not believe it possible that Dr Kelly died in the manner officially found.

Scurr told me that Dr Kelly’s half-sister, Sarah Pape OBE – a leading plastic surgeon based at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Newcastle – rang him shortly after Hutton published his report in January 2004 to say she didn’t believe Dr Kelly had taken his own life.

Scurr told me: ‘Sarah Pape clearly had concerns about whether Dr Kelly could have died from slashing his wrist. We had an in-depth conversation about it. She took the trouble to contact me after the Hutton Inquiry finished to discuss whether one could actually die from slashing the ulnar artery [which passes through the wrist on the little finger side].

Damning new evidence that Dr Kelly DIDN'T commit suicide: The disturbing flaws in the official government story surrounding the death of Blair's chemical weapons expert

Scurr has his own significant professional doubts too – remember, he is an expert when it comes to blood vessels.

He said: ‘I don’t believe it’s possible to die from simply cutting your ulnar artery. It is a very small artery and it is unlikely you could lose enough blood to cause cardiac arrest and death. It is much more likely he died from another cause. One possibility is a heart attack caused by whatever reason and this was an attempt to mask that.

‘The relative absence of blood at the scene and the fact that a rather blunt knife was used are significant. If one were to cut the wrist holding the knife in the right hand, the artery that would be cut is not the ulnar artery, which is on the inside of the hand, but the radial artery on the outside of the hand.

‘It seems more probable that somebody else took the knife and actually slashed the wrist, taking the stroke across the ulnar artery.’
