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!"

SearchSearchBREAKING: Kim Dotcom Tweets at Hannity: ‘Let's Talk About Seth Rich ... And Put an End to Russiagate’

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.”

CELEBS AND FAMS OF KENNEDY, MLK DEMAND NEW PROBES ...ASSASSINATIONS WERE CONSPIRACIES

Sixty prominent citizens are marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day by calling for new investigations into the assassinations of 4 men -- assassinations that changed the world -- John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

The group -- The Truth and Reconciliation Committee (TRC) -- believes all 4 assassinations were the result of conspiracies that were covered up by the government.

Members of TRC include Oliver Stone, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Rob Reiner, David Crosby, Mort Sahl, Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and MLK's nephew Isaac Newton Farris Jr.

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. The Skripals have since been vanished.

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

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“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.

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.’

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

The 59-year-old scientist’s body was discovered on July 18, 2003, days after he had been grilled publicly in front of a Select Committee of MPs about his contact with the BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan.

Gilligan had reported that the Government dossier, which claimed Iraq could deploy weapons of mass destruction at 45 minutes’ notice, was unreliable – exaggerated or ‘sexed up’ for political purposes.

And Dr Kelly, a chemical weapons expert who worked for the Foreign Office and Ministry of Defence, was soon unmasked by Downing Street officials as the BBC’s informant.

He always denied being the main source of the story but was nonetheless thrust into the spotlight against his will.

Snowden: If Israel’s NSO had refused sale to Saudi, Khashoggi would be alive

US whistle-blower Edward Snowden has said that if Israeli spyware firm NSO Group had refused to sell its technology to Saudi Arabia, murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi would still be alive.

In an exclusive interview with Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth published yesterday, Snowden stressed: “There is a real possibility that if NSO had refused to sell [its] dangerous technology to Saudi Arabia, which is a country that has a long history of human rights violations, Khashoggi would still have been alive.”

Snowden continued: “Whether you agree with me or not, it is clear that [NSO Group’s work] is dangerous […] they say they are saving lives, but the evidence suggests they are doing the opposite.”

FLASHBACK - The Coldest Case

Over the next 11 years, the question of who killed Mallove would lead Curtis down a path he never expected. Mallove, the detective discovered, was one of the world’s most outspoken advocates for cold fusion. “It’s science well above my intellect,” Curtis says. Yet cold fusion isn’t just a complicated form of nuclear energy. It’s also highly controversial. Supporters see it as energy’s holy grail, the key to saving the Earth from environmental destruction. Critics maintain it might not even be possible—and that any claims that it’s already been achieved are total fringe-science lunacy. Understanding Mallove, and what his death meant, required delving into a world of knowledge and intrigue where the scientist had once battled and thrived.

Last November, on a rainy, gray afternoon, Curtis, a 48-year-old with graying hair and bright blue eyes, drives to the spot in Norwich where his investigation began. “We had to start right there,” he tells me. “We had to start on the driveway.”

‘UNDER UN’S CARE’: SAUDI WOMAN ‘RESCUED’ FROM DEPORTATION AFTER SOCIAL MEDIA STORM

The UN is examining the asylum appeal of a young Saudi woman who fled her family and is afraid of getting killed if sent home. She earlier barricaded herself in a Thai hotel room, refusing to leave until the UN intervened.
It will take the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) “several days” to determine whether Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, needs international protection, the organization’s representative in Thailand said. The woman earlier claimed asylum, fearing that she will be killed if expelled to her home country. UNHCR staff is expected to continue interviewing her on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these stories are true, it is not an uncommon thing for Women to be treated by their families like this, in Saudi Arabia.

But of course, that is NOT the image the Saudi monarchs want to be shown in the West, hence their desperate attempts to get her back home, where she will most likely be tried and sentenced to death by a kangaroo court, for no longer following the Wahabbi-"flavor" of Islam.

And here, surprisingly, is a companion piece which appeared in elle.com: What to Know About Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, the Saudi Teen Fleeing Her Family

One cannot but wish this lady safe passage to a country where behaviour like this will not be both tolerated, and encouraged, against women.

And please remember: this country's leader, Saudi Arabia's Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the guy to whose country the US is now selling $195 million of weaponry upgrades, is one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East.

AN 'ACCIDENTAL' DEATH? PROTESTS BREAK OUT OUTSIDE HOME OF DEMOCRATIC DONOR, AFTER BODY FOUND INSIDE

Protests have broken out outside the California home of wealthy Democratic donor and LGBT activist Ed Buck, after the second dead body of a black man was found inside in less than two years.

The dead man – an unidentified man in his 50s – was a “longtime friend” of Buck, Attorney Seymour Amster told Fox News. He apparently turned up at Buck’s door on Sunday night and began acting “in a bizarre way,” before dying in the Los Angeles apartment.

“As far as we're concerned, this is an accidental death,” Amster told Fox.

Neighbors aren’t convinced. Shortly after the discovery on Monday, they began turning up outside Buck’s Los Angeles residence. The protesters blame Buck for the man’s death, and say they have called the police on the wealthy donor before.

My bet is, even if he IS guilty, that this guy will most probably skate; the rich rarely eat their own.

Why Trump's Advisors Keep Quashing His Realist Whims

The multitude of policy zigs and zags seems to constitute a case of a president suffering from foreign policy bipolar disorder. Yet a pattern may exist amidst all of the turmoil. Trump’s foreign policy instincts often appear to be a sound and refreshing contrast to the stale conventional wisdom that has led the United States to careen from one interventionist debacle to another over the past quarter-century. (His early hostile stance toward North Korea and his policy toward Iran at all times are the major exceptions to sound instincts.) But time and again Trump has allowed his advisers to talk him out of his initial (usually correct) positions. That’s not surprising. The president is not an avid reader about foreign policy (or apparently anything else), and his knowledge base is alarmingly shallow. That deficiency gives policy advisers an exceptional degree of influence.

$100 Billion in Weapons to the Saudis Buys a World Full of Hurt

On December 13, the United States Senate made history with a vote invoking the 1973 War Powers Act to stop America’s military participation in, and support of, the unauthorized and immoral war against the desperate people in Yemen.

Never before had a vote of this nature passed the Senate. The measure passed with 56 senators voting in support and 41 voting against. It marked the first time the Senate has been able to put the breaks on our involvement in Yemen, a war that was never authorized by Congress, as is required by our Constitution.

Meanwhile, Speaker Paul Ryan went to extraordinary lengths to forestall a vote on a similar motion in the House of Representatives.

The history here is worth noting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I type this, the US military is aiding and abetting Saudi troops in Yemen, and, with the US government, is culpable a colluding in what have to be called "war crimes"; there is just no way to say this.

I have seen too many images of Yemeni children blown to bits, courtesy of Saudi air strikes; I have seen too many images of Yemeni children dying from malnutrition, courtesy of US/Saudi blockade of Yemen's ports, so no food can get into this tortured country; and I have seen too many images of Yemeni children, sickened by cholera, (possibly weaponised), courtesy of Saudi bombing water Yemen's infrastructure, to be silent.

Yes, bombs are about the only thing other countries want to buy from us, and just from a business perspective, one could say, these sales are "good for business"; but at what cost to this country's very soul and nature, do we continue to arm countries like Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, the crooked and dictatorial leadership of which hates any notion of a constitutional monarchy, and continue to oppress their own people?!?

I don't know about the rest of you, folks, but I am very tired of living in a country which, so consistently around the world, commits war crimes with impunity.

I remember being a kid, and being very proud to be an American; but as I got older, and was trying to look, objectively, at what the US does around the world, and why it does it, these "Claire on the Road" moments (at least intellectually), have been a real eye-opener.

The pattern is extremely clear. If there is someone sitting at the head of a government that DC doesn't like, with great resources (Like Afghanistan or Iraq) it destabilizes it; "the US creates "regime change", to a more Western-centric government; has the resources of that country expropriated, and controlled by US-friendly corporations, and all of the transactions done only in the US dollar.

When Karl Marx made the observation "All wars are economic in nature", the guy was very clearly correct in his assessment.

FIVE-YEAR JAIL TERMS SOUGHT FOR EX-TEPCO EXECUTIVES OVER FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR DISASTER

Five-year prison terms were sought Wednesday for three former executives of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc. for their alleged failure to prevent the Fukushima nuclear disaster triggered by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
At the Tokyo District Court, court-appointed lawyers acting as prosecutors said if the three had collected information properly and prepared necessary safety measures it would have been possible to predict the massive tsunami and prevent the disaster.

Tsunehisa Katsumata, 78, chairman of the company at the time of the disaster at the Fukushima No. 1 power plant, and Ichiro Takekuro, 72, and Sakae Muto, 68, both former vice presidents, have pleaded not guilty, arguing the tsunami was unforeseeable and the disaster would have occurred even if they had implemented preventive measures.

A final hearing for the defense will be held next March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only 5 years for the devastation created by Fukushima, on top of lack of real planning by these guys, since 2008?!?

It should be a life sentence for these guys, without parole, and not, please, in the Japanese equivalent of a "Club Fed."

Mayor gunned down shortly after taking office in Mexico

A Mexican mayor was gunned down shortly after he took office, the governor of Mexico's southern state of Oaxaca said. Gov. Alejandro Murat confirmed the killing of Tlaxiaco Mayor Alejandro Aparicio Santiago via his Twitter account Tuesday.

Murat condemned the slaying and promised a thorough investigation, saying a suspect was already in custody. The state prosecutor's office said in a statement that Aparicio had just been sworn in and was headed to a meeting at city hall when an unknown number of gunmen opened fire at him.

He was taken to a hospital, but died there later. Four other people were wounded in the attack.

CIA-MANAGED FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN ARE REPORTEDLY CONDUCTING 'TORTURE AND KILLINGS WITH NEAR IMPUNITY'

Afghan strike forces overseen by the CIA are operating with little care for preventing civilian casualties, a lengthy New York Times report details Monday, and their brutality has fostered local populations' sympathy for the Taliban.

The CIA-managed teams work "unconstrained by battlefield rules designed to protect civilians, conducting night raids, torture and killings with near impunity," the Times reports, citing Afghan and American officials. "Those abuses are actively pushing people toward the Taliban, the officials say," and as the U.S. military footprint in the country has declined from its 2011 peak of about 100,000, these "strike forces are increasingly the way that a large number of rural Afghans experience the American presence." Unconfirmed reports suggest some raids may even include American operatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to read this with absolute disgust, contempt, and a really nasty feeling in one's gut, that were war crimes were a competitive sport, the US would be close to winning "the gold", as the country which has committed so many war crimes that it has lost count..if count was ever kept.

And I have to speculate; is this behaviour on the part of the CIA-backed troops actually intended and engineered to make this 18 year old war run longer, so that the various "Alphabet Soup" agencies, which make millions running the poppy trade, creating very strong, cheap, heroin, for "off-shelf operations", won't lose their source of income?!?

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against it. And no, the photos below haven't been photoshopped:

CIA’s Afghan Forces Terrorize the Public, Undermine Trust

7 years into the US war in Afghanistan, various administrations have tried myriad different strategies to try to win the war, many of them involving recruiting local groups. While the Pentagon’s various allies have had well-documented problems, they’re nothing compared to the CIA.

Clandestine and playing fast and loose with the rules, the CIA’s own Afghan forces, various bands of local gunmen with some nominal training, have missions to do, and very little in the way of rules of engagement.

Being told to “search for militants” is all but blanket permission to raid and loot random homes. One survivor of such a raid describes the fighters taking him away for questioning. After they took him, they killed his two brothers and sister-in-law, then burned the house to the ground, killing his 3-year-old daughter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I really hate being a citizen of a country which perpetually commits war crimes; reading this story this morning, made me just ill.

And remember; this horrific, nearly 18 years-on war, is not being fought "to defend the American way of life", or honor, or glory; it is being perpetuated so that ultimately, a US-compliant Afghani government will make sure that the pipelines can be leased by the appropriate corporations; make sure that only US-centric corporations can extract Afghanistan's rare earth minerals; and that rights to harvest and distribute opium poppies are done only with US-friendly resources, and that the transactions for all this are conducted with US dollars only.

When Karl Marx made the observation that "All wars are economic" in nature, he was dead spot on; unfortunately, in US history classes, the financial components leading to wars, are seldom legitimately recognised.

REPORT: DA NEVER INTERVIEWED COP BEFORE JUSTIFYING MURDER OF INNOCENT DAD IN RAID ON WRONG HOME

In December of 2017, police responded to a prank call, also known as a “swatting,” at the home of Andrew Finch. When the entirely innocent and unarmed father answered the door during the raid, Officer Justin Rapp was recorded on video killing him in cold blood. After the coverage died down in the press, and as TFTP accurately predicted in
January, the Wichita District Attorney quietly announced that there will be no charges. Now, we are learning that this decision was made in spite of the fact that the DA reportedly never even interviewed Rapp.

“It’s one year later and the leadership of Wichita and the WPD have failed to take any responsibility for the unjustified, unconstitutional and tragic death of Andy Finch,” Attorney Andrew Stroth wrote in a statement. “Two young children no longer have their father because of a pattern, practice and history of excessive force utilized by the Wichita Police and the unreasonable actions of Officer Justin Rapp.”

American Legion Joins VFW in Calling for Congressional Investigation of Israel's Attack on USS Liberty.

Due to the persistence of surviving crew members and the continual emergence of new revelations, the national veteran's group American Legion has passed Resolution 40 calling for Congress to "publicly, impartially, and thoroughly" investigate the attack by Israel on an American ship in 1967, in which 34 American sailors were killed and hundreds of others were wounded. The resolution comes despite a veil of government secrecy which keeps key documents on the attack classified more than 50 years later. [NSA USS Liberty documents.

The attack, which surviving crew members to a man say was deliberate, as well as a stellar list of high-ranking officials, has never been officially investigated outside of a Navy Court of Inquiry and an NSA probe. Surviving crew members were not allowed to testify to key points which did not fit the official conclusion that it was an accident.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may only happen when pigs make the amazing discovery that they are aerodynamic, but to have such respected, Veteran-centric organizations asking for this, may mean "The times, they are a'changin" for Israel's hubris and impunity, and believing that they can get away with any crimes, particularly against American targets, in order to further their geopolitical goals.

TRUMP CRITICS OF SYRIA WITHDRAWAL FUELED RISE OF ISIS

Too many of those protesting the removal of U.S. forces are authors of the catastrophe that tore Syria to pieces, reports Max Blumenthal for Consortium News.

Birthing ISIS From the Womb of Regime Change

During the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, Clinton, Kerry, and the rest of the Beltway blob lined up reflexively behind George W. Bush.

The insurgency that followed the violent removal of Iraq’s Ba’athist government set the stage for the declaration of the first Islamic State by Abu Musab Zarqawi in 2006. Five years later, with near-total consent from Congress, Hillary enthusiastically presided over NATO’s assault on Libya, cackling with glee when she learned that the country’s longtime leader, Moammar Gaddafi, had been sodomized with a bayonet and shot to death by Islamist insurgents — “We came, we saw, he died!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is one element regarding the assassination of Qaddafi this article will not touch with a 10 foot pole, and treats it like Kryptonite, something to stay away from at any cost. But here it is, from Hillary's own email, nonetheless:

NATO KILLED QADDAFI TO STOP LIBYAN CREATING OF A GOLD-BACKED CURRENCY

The article goes on to state:

One of the 3,000 Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department on New Year’s Eve (where real news is sent to die quietly) has revealed evidence that NATO’s plot to overthrow Gaddafi was fueled by first their desire to quash the gold-backed African currency, and second the Libyan oil reserves.

The email in question was sent to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by her unofficial adviser Sydney Blumenthal titled “France’s client and Qaddafi’s gold”.

From Foreign Policy Journal:

The email identifies French President Nicholas Sarkozy as leading the attack on Libya with five specific purposes in mind: to obtain Libyan oil, ensure French influence in the region, increase Sarkozy’s reputation domestically, assert French military power, and to prevent Gaddafi’s influence in what is considered “Francophone Africa.”

"Five years later, with near-total consent from Congress, Hillary enthusiastically presided over NATO’s assault on Libya, cackling with glee when she learned that the country’s longtime leader, Moammar Gaddafi, had been sodomized with a bayonet and shot to death by Islamist insurgents — “We came, we saw, he died!", provides us with a really interesting window on this lady's thought process.

This very much reminds me of a line from the now-cancelled, but brilliant and iconic show, "Elementary", where the Sherlock character is telling the Watson character that his father "had assassins on speed dial."

One has to wonder, given that this is the only couple in American politics with a known "dead bodies list" if that might be true for Arkansas'geopolitical "Gruesome Twosome", Bill and Hillary Clinton.

So, there you have it.

CHILD SOLDIERS FROM DARFUR FIGHTING AS MERCENARIES FOR SAUDI ARABIA IN YEMEN

At any time for nearly four years as many as 14,000 Sudanese militiamen have been fighting in Yemen in tandem with the local militia aligned with the Saudis, according to several Sudanese fighters who have returned and Sudanese lawmakers who are attempting to track it. Hundreds, at least, have died there.

Almost all the Sudanese fighters appear to come from the battle-scarred and impoverished region of Darfur, where some 300,000 people were killed and 1.2 million displaced during a dozen years of conflict over diminishing arable land and other scarce resources.

Some families are so eager for the money that they bribe militia officers to let their sons go fight. Many are ages 14 to 17. In interviews, five fighters who have returned from Yemen and another about to depart said that children made up at least 20 percent of their units. Two said children were more than 40 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And the Saudi government and military, are completely happy with this arrangement?!?

And the US military chain of command is perfectly morally comfortable, knowing that kids are fighting in this genocide the Saudi Saudi Arabian are creating in Yemen?!?

Of course, perhaps, to both the Saudis and the US forces assisting them, because they are from another country, they are simply considered "collateral damage", and the decision has been made that it is better that Houthis kill these kids, rather than Saudi or US nationals.

This only adds to my disgust, at the reality that the US military is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

CALIFORNIA TOWN OKS DESTRUCTION OF POLICE SHOOTING RECORDS DAYS BEFORE THEY COULD BE OBTAINED BY THE PUBLIC

California has long protected police officers from accountability. Most police misconduct records are impossible to obtain via public records requests. The restrictions covering these personnel files even prevent defense attorneys and prosecutors from accessing them, allowing cops with lousy track records for telling the truth present testimony as if they've never committed a misdeed or told a lie.

Faced with impending accountability, police departments are readying themselves for mass releases of previously withheld data. Oh, wait. The opposite of that.

Brother of mafia supergrass shot dead on Christmas Day

The brother of a former mafia member who turned supergrass was fatally shot by two hooded men on Christmas Day, in what police suspect was a killing ordered by a clan of the powerful Calabrian mafia, the ’Ndrangheta.

Marcello Bruzzese, 51, was killed while he was returning home in the historical centre of Pesaro, in the Italian region of the Marche.

According to the police, the killers, who were wearing balaclavas, waited near the victim’s flat and fired at least 20 shots at him.

Illegal Land Grab and Human Rights Abuses in the Congo

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s biggest conservation organizations, is breaking the law in its backing of a conservation zone in the Congo Basin, according to letters released today.

The letters demonstrate that the new protected area, known as Messok Dja, is being created without the free, prior and informed consent of the people who rely on that land for survival, members of the Baka and Bakwele tribes.

The letters also document human rights abuses committed by ecoguards funded and supported by WWF.

According to national and international law, indigenous people must give consent for any project affecting their lands, territories, and resources. Without the consent of the people who rely on the land for survival, the establishment of Messok Dja park is illegal.

Over a hundred people from six villages in Republic of Congo have signed the letters, which also describe horrific violence and abuse by ecoguards funded and supported by WWF.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me wrap my head around this; WWF has surrounded these tribes with local thuggery, to keep them away from the forests upon which they have relied for food and sustenance for generations?

The short question has to be, "Why"?!?!?

The answer is simple; the land underneath the park means nothing, until people decide that they want to develop what lies beneath; and therein lies the rub!!

Mining in the Congo Basin

This article goes on to state: "Mining is an important land use activity in the forested region of the Congo basin, employing millions of people in the informal sector, and in the past few decades surpassing timber as the largest economic activity. Gold, diamonds, cobalt, copper and oil are major resources that are mined from the region; most mining is small scale, artisanal, and unregulated. Recently, mining groups have targeted coltan and cassiterite, rare minerals used in electronics such as mobile phones.

Oil and mineral exploitation often occurs in the forested areas of the Congo basin, clearing roads and encouraging settlement and deforestation. However, oil and mineral activity also may discourage deforestation by making agricultural export less profitable and by pulling rural populations into cities and away from forested areas, as witnessed in Gabon and Republic of Congo. In an oil "concession in Gabon, forests are well protected and hunting is not permitted."

And the following article makes the following statement: How Nations are Chipping Away at their Protected lands

This article goes on to state: "Officials in the Democratic Republic of the Congo likewise opened up their best known World Heritage Site, Virunga National Park, to oil exploration. Soco, a British company, faced global protest and returned its permit to the government last year — but only after completing seismic testing and filing a report, secret so far, on whether exploratory drilling would be practical in the park. The project heightened tensions with park officials in a region already ravaged by private armies, according to a conservation scientist working in the region, who added, “The eastern DRC is a powder keg, with so many factions, and this was literally throwing oil on the fire.”

It appears that WWF is functioning like a "holding company" for these opportunities; holding on to the land, until someone deems it "profitable enough" to drill or dig.

EXECUTIONS RISE SHARPLY UNDER SAUDI CROWN PRINCE

Executions in Saudi Arabia rose significantly in the first eight months after Mohammed bin Salman became deputy crown prince, a London-based human rights organization said.

According to Reprieve, 133 people were executed between June 2017 and March 2018, nearly twice as many as the 67 recorded during the eight months before his rise to power.

Saudi Arabia has executed 147 people in 2018 and around 700 people since 2014. Almost half of those who received capital punishment were foreign nationals, according to Reprieve’s report.

They included Indonesian housekeeper Tuti Tursilawati, who was executed after being sentenced to death for the murder of her boss, despite her claim that she had acted in self-defence after he tried to rape her. The report criticized Saudi Arabia for ignoring international conventions as it had refused to notify Tursilawati’s family and Indonesian officials before her execution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps this is why President Trump is so drawn to both the Butcher of Yemen, Crown Prince Bin Salman, and the Butcher of Gaza, Bibi Netanyahu; to be able to order assassinations at will, with no laws or legal protocol with which to have to deal; in Trump's eyes, that must be potentially heaven on earth!

‘S African Gov’t Creating a Scenario of Conflict & Racial Hatred’ – Cape Party

British MP Andrew Bridger has called on Prime Minister Theresa May to condemn South African authorities, who have approved land expropriation from white farmers. Addressing Theresa May Wednesday, Bridger slammed the decision, saying: “This is not only wrong, it is also risking putting another African country from a bread basket into a basket case”.

U.S. POLICE UNDER PRESSURE TO END THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL

When the International Olympic Committee announced that Atlanta would host the 1996 Summer Olympics, security for such a massive event was an immediate concern.

As part of their preparation, local police traveled to Israel to learn about its security and counterterrorism strategies. In May alone, Israel saw a total of 684 “terrorist events,” according to an Israeli government website. By contrast, since 1980, there have been 11 notable terrorist attacks with fatalities on American soil.

Georgia State University criminologist Robert Friedmann — who was raised in Israel and launched the Georgia International Law Enforcement Exchange (GILEE) to help police secure the Atlanta Games — says these exchange programs provide an opportunity for U.S. police to learn counterterrorism prevention and response from a country with significantly more experience.

Saudi official sacked over Khashoggi murder 'made secret visits to Israel'

A senior Saudi intelligence official who was sacked over his suspected involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi made secret trips to Israel on behalf of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the visits.

According to the newspaper's sources, Major General Ahmed al-Assiri, the former deputy chief of Saudi intelligence who was sacked by Riyadh in October, visited Israel to discuss how Saudi Arabia could benefit from Israeli surveillance technology.

The WSJ said that another of bin Salman's closest aides, Saud al-Qahtani, who was also sacked over the Khashoggi killing, was also involved in covert efforts to improve Saudi-Israeli ties.

Sources told the newspaper that Qahtani, the crown prince's media adviser, issued directives to the Saudi press to help soften Israel's image and was involved in Riyadh's purchase of spyware technology from Israeli firms.

History of Ukraine Told by Assassinated Ukrainian Writer Oles Buzina

Can you imagine what would happened if, in Russia, three opposition figures, a well-known writer and two politicians, were killed in the span of two days? We have a vague of idea of what that would look like, after the Western hysteria about Nemtsov.

Oles' assassination was the third in a row of political killings in the last four days: Sergey Sukhobok (April 13); Oleg Kalashnikov (April 15); and Oles Buzina (April 16).

Why are the Western media silent about these political assassinations? And all of this happened after 9 "mysterious suicides" in Ukraine in the last 2 months.

Saudi Arabia Condemns US Senate for ‘Interference’: Says resolutions undermine Saudi international role

Saudi Arabia has issued a statement Monday morning condemning the US Senate for a pair of resolutions calling them out for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and blaming the Saudi Crown Prince. They called the Senate resolutions “interference” based on “untrue allegations.”

The Thursday resolutions by the Senate included a call to end US involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, as well as the blaming of them for the Khashoggi murder. Saudi officials say they “previously asserted that the murder of Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi is a deplorable time.”

Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, by a Saudi kill team. Saudi officials are complaining that the Senate noting this is “blatant interference in the Kingdom’s internal affairs, undermining the Kingdom’s regional and international role.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely suggest to the Butcher of Yemen, Saudi Crown Prince bin Salman that perhaps "the Kingdom’s regional and international role.” is not a licence to kill; the only reason the world is dealing with you, is the oil, period, end of discussion, and you know it.

IMAGINE IF SAUDI ARABIA WAS NOT A US ALLY

The US Senate has voted 56 to 41 to sorta-kinda eventually end America’s part in the Saudi-led war in Yemen, one step out of a great many that will need to happen in order to end the worst humanitarian crisis on the face of the earth.

The joint resolution still allows US drones to patrol Yemeni airspace and rain death from above in its “war on terror” against Al Qaeda, and it is unable to pass in the House this year due to an unbelievably sleazy rider that House Republicans attached to the unrelated Farm Bill. The resolution isn’t expected to change much in terms of actual US participation in the war besides some intelligence and reconnaissance assistance to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates against the Houthi rebels, since the US has already ended its assistance in refueling Saudi jets on their bombing campaigns as of last month. Trump is expected to veto any Yemen resolutions, and the Senate resolution was not passed with a veto-proof supermajority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is simply sound and fury, signifying nothing to relieve the situation on the ground in Yemen; it is simply cosmetic, and will do no good, unless and until, Congress decides to take the power of war back from a bloated, Orwellian Executive Branch, which believes it has the "divine right" of having a war anywhere on the planet without Congressional oversight and approval.

SAUDIS CONTINUE KILLING CIVILIANS DURING YEMEN PEACE TALKS IN SWEDEN

A statement from the spokesman of Yemen’s Armed Forces reported that the US-backed Saudi coalition dropped 38 airstrikes just over the course of Saturday. At least 12 of which targeted various areas of Hodeidah which constitutes a direct violation of the peace negotiations calling for a ceasefire.

Airstrikes killed at least 15 civilians since the peace negotiations began last week — including seven women and three children. Meanwhile, 28 sustained injuries, eight of whom were children as well as five women.

Yemen’s Ministry of Health pointed out that this displays the Saudi coalition’s unwillingness to engage in a peace process. “This expresses the unwillingness of these countries to stop the bloodshed and alleviate the suffering of the people of Yemen, which exposes the reality of these countries’ goals in their aggression against Yemen,” a statement from the MoH reads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, DANG, I thing that this will be judged as "one of the shortest documented cease-fire in human history!!"

It is painfully obvious to me that the Butcher of Yemen, Prince Mohammad bin Salman, wants victory at any cost, and is very prepared to slaughter as many Yemeni people as humanly possible to achieve that.

I also wish to express how deeply concerned I am that President Trump's two BFFs in the Middle East, are Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, the butcher of Gaza, and Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, Butcher of of Yemen.

ISRAELI POLITICIAN CALLS FOR PA PRESIDENT TO BE KILLED

A member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, called on Sunday for the President of the Palestinian Authority to have his head “chopped off”. Oren Hazzan MK made the comment about Mahmoud Abbas, as well as his Deputy, Mahmoud Al-Aloul, during a march held by illegal settlers in Jerusalem, Maan News Agency has reported.

Dozens of settlers gathered in and around Jerusalem’s Old City chanting racist slogans against Abbas and calling for him to be killed. In the evening, they gathered outside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s house and burnt pictures of Abbas. Banners held by the settlers called for the PA leader’s assassination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would politely want to suggest that Oren Hazzan, MK, be a little more careful about what he wishes for.

Such a move on the part of the IDF, would most probably bring more violence against these illegal settlers than they can begin to imagine.

And yes, thinking Americans understand that the complete, final, and genocidal extermination of the Palestinians is precisely what Israel would love to do, but the international optics on such a move ... would usher in a world where BDS is considered the norm, as a retaliation against this.

So, at the end of the day, I would very politely suggest that the gentleman suggesting this would be a marvelous outcome for the Zionist movement .... think again.

Did an LVMPD sniper shoot Stephen Paddock “right in the head”?

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department sniper may be responsible for shooting Stephen Paddock from an unknown vantage point outside of the Mandalay Bay hotel possibly from street level or at least it sounds that way.

New officer-worn body camera footage from the night of the 1 October massacre has surfaced in which you can hear the two final shots which may have ended Stephen Paddock’s life.

Inside Sources Say the State Dept Refuses To Trace Whether Israel Is Using U.S. Military Aid Illegally

THE VIDEO SHOWS A FAMILIAR WEST BANK SCENE. As a Palestinian flag in Nabi Saleh flutters in the wind on a spring day in 2017, two Palestinians with slingshots launch stones at Israeli soldiers. About a dozen others stand to the side, behind the ruins of a demolished house, calmly observing.

Then, a young man wearing a white T-shirt and jeans, alone, is seen heading up a slight slope toward the house. The camera jerks for a second, and the youth disappears from the frame. A single shot rings out. The observers duck. The young man, back in the frame, is running toward the others, holding his stomach. Then he falls. The screams for an ambulance begin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Both the money, and weapons, the US government lavishes on Israel, are absolutely illegal, according to the Symington and Glenn Amendments; the fact that innocent, and peaceful Palestinians are getting assassinated by US weapons here, by the hands of the IDF, is utterly depressing to every thinking US citizen.

Did Israel Kill Yasser Arafat?

Israeli intelligence officials desperately tried to prevent Ronen Bergman from writing “Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations,” a stunning book exposing the details of Israel’s extrajudicial killing program. Israel even changed and extended secrecy laws to prevent Bergman from gaining access to historical documents. Despite this, Bergman gained unprecedented access while writing the book, scouring thousands of documents and meeting with some 1,000 sources. The result is a stunning investigation that dives deep into the targeted killing programs of Israel, which has assassinated more people than any other country in the Western world since World War II. We speak with Ronen Bergman about Israel’s many attempts to kill the former chair of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Yasser Arafat, and the possibility that they succeeded.

‘Bolton is preparing plan for my assassination, with help from Bogota’ – Venezuela’s Maduro

Israel's alleged impersonation of Gaza aid workers raises concern

Since the exposure of Israeli undercover forces by Hamas fighters in the occupied Gaza Strip on November 11, an incident that triggered the most intense round of escalation since 2014, a number of reports have emerged about the circumstances surrounding Israel's thwarted raid.

On November 22, Hamas published photos of individuals it said were involved, images that Israel's military censor immediately subjected to a publication ban.

Since then, a number of articles in Israeli and international media have claimed the Israeli forces impersonated humanitarian workers, used fake ID cards of real Palestinian residents, and operated inside Gaza for weeks with a cover story of distributing medical equipment and wheelchairs.

THE US WANTS TO BRING BACK THE SHAH OF IRAN

Iran has been under severe US-imposed economic sanctions for 40 years. The US has been threatening Iran with war and “all options are on the table” for decades. The US has also instigated instability inside Iran and supported external attacks by terrorist groups such as Mujahideen-e-Khalq, or MEK. [*]

The US project to destroy Iran’s economy has had a devastating impact. The husky Secretary of Defense Mike Pompeo said that it is up to Iranian’s leadership “if they want their people to eat”.[*] Because of the US, Iran lacks sufficient funds that it would like to invest in human resources and social programs. Iran’s constitution guarantees healthcare and free education for all, as well as protections of civil rights. As reflected in the drafting of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic, the vision of the economic order was:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing for the US government to do, is, unfortunately, zero guarantee that they won't do it.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is advocating for a full-on US military attack against Iran, of course, only to be purchased by American blood and American money.

Should Iran get attacked, I would rather count on Russia's Putin, to bring his military into the fray on Iran's side; and we have seen, with what Russian troops did in Syria, the capabilities of both Russia's military and its weaponry.

It is disconcerting to me in the extreme, that President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, are Saudi Arabia's King Mohammed bin Salman, the Butcher of Yemen, and Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza.

I therefore strongly caution the President about thinking that an invasion of Iran would "be a cakewalk", where our soldiers would be embraced as liberators; because at this moment in its history, the US military doesn't have the troop strength; the money; the weaponry; or the manufacturing, to insure a positive outcome from a war with Russia.

And if none of his "advisors" have told him this, it is high time that he knew.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

WHITEY BULGER'S FAMILY, LACKING A SENSE OF IRONY, FILE LAWSUIT OVER HIS 2018 MURDER

Trafficking guns and explosives to the Irish Republican Army, running a massive criminal enterprise for years in Boston, extorting drug dealers so that they could do business on his turf, acting as an FBI informant and oh, so many murders: James “Whitey” Bulger's life was both colorful and poisonous, to say the least.

His long career as a professional criminal came to an end in 2011. After over a decade on the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitives list, Bulger was located and charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, extortion, narcotics distribution and money-laundering. He was convicted and thrown in the clink in 2012. This past October, Bugler, 89 years old and confined to a wheelchair, was stabbed and beaten to death by his fellow inmates at the United States Penitentiary, Hazelton, in West Virginia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the Feds will want to settle this one out of court, because Bulger was an informant for the FBI, starting in 1975. Whitey Bulger was an informant for the FBI

I think the Feds transferred him there, because the "hit" was going to be easier to execute, in an environment like this.

None of the US's"alphabet soup" security resources like "live liabilities"; everything in the "chain of command" on the transfer of this prisoner reeks to high heaven of a set-up.

Decision to assassinate Arafat approved by Saudis:

A former senior adviser to Yasser Arafat, the late leader of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), has said that Arafat's death was not natural and he was actually assassinated, with Saudi Arabia approving the decision to assassinate him.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Palestine’s Arabic-language Shehab news agency, Bassam Abu Sharif said former US president, George W. Bush, had contacted Saudi officials after a meeting with former Israeli prime minister, Ariel Sharon, during which Arafat's liquidation was discussed, and Saudi authorities consented.

Abu Sharif went on to say that the Riyadh regime approved of Arafat’s assassination, because it viewed him as an obstacle to the Arab Peace Initiative, which envisioned a so-called two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

‘The thing is done’: Khashoggi killing tape indicates hit squad was briefing Riyadh, report says

The full transcript of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi's murder in a Saudi consulate in Turkey reportedly shows that one of the assassins was briefing someone on the phone as the journalist's dismembering progressed.

According to a CNN report citing a source who has reviewed the full transcript of the audio recording translated from Arabic, a man, identified as Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a former Saudi diplomat and intelligence official, made at least three phone calls to someone who was apparently a superior.

"Tell yours, the thing is done, it's done," Mutreb allegedly said as Khashoggi drew his last breath at the hands of a 15-man hit team.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: CRACK, CONTRAS, AND THE CIA

This 1996 interview with Gary Webb took place after his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series made waves across the country for piecing together the puzzle of the US crack epidemic.

The pipeline of CIA backed drug smuggling into the country and money smuggling out of the country to support the Nicaraguan Contras was wide open from the mid 1970s on, with players using everything from their shoes to freighters to move cocaine.

Webb was widely smeared by the CIA’s favorite newspapers (The New York Times, the Washington Post, The LA Times) shortly after this interview.

He was eventually vindicated, but not before his career was destroyed. He was found dead of an apparent suicide in 2005. The price of being a whistleblower?

shot himself in the head TWICE.

The Khashoggi skeletons in America's closet

Donald Trump's commitment to "remain[ing] a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia," despite the regime's gruesome torture and murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey, is clearly symptomatic of the malignantly self-serving nature of US foreign policy, which has long propped up dictatorships and enabled atrocities around the world for the sake of profit and power.

The Assassination Of John Lennon

***
It was a tragedy of Kerkegaardian pointlessness. There was only one apparent way to squeeze any sense from it; write it off as random violence by a "wacko."

"He walked past me and then I heard in my head, 'Do it, do it, do it,' over and over again, saying 'Do it, do it, do it,' like that," Chapman, preternaturally serene, recalled in a BBC documentary several years after going to prison. "I don't remember aiming. I must have done, but I don't remember drawing a bead or whatever you call it. And I just pulled the trigger steady five times."

Chapman described his feeling at the time of the shooting as "no emotion, no anger dead silence in the brain."

His unnatural tone sounded all-too-familiar. British lawyer/journalist Fenton Bresler took it as a tip-off. Chapman was a brainwashed hit man carrying out someone else's contract.

Who Authorized The Assassination Of John Lennon

***
Who Authorized The Assassination Of John Lennon?

It took me almost 22 years to figure out who most likely authorized the assassination of John Lennon, the greatest singer songwriter and the most influential political artist of our time. I believe it could have been the CIA that manipulated the assassin of John Winston Lennon, but more likely, I believe a new army of old school CIA, which was let go under President Carter, manipulated the assassin. I believe the assassin was a mind-control experiment, like all their old tricks of MKULTRA, only much more sophisticated. I believe their old boss authorized it. The person the CIA building in Washington D.C. is named after. I believe he was the same person who tried to assassinate President Ronald Wilson Reagan on his sixty-ninth day in office -- March 30, 1981. He is the person with the most to gain from both of these assassinations. So, who authorized the assassination of John Lennon? I believe it was the 41st President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush.

Video: Uber driver tells police he may have dropped off the Las Vegas shooter and a woman

A Las Vegas-based Uber driver told police one day after the 2017 massacre that he may have dropped off several accomplices at the MGM just days before the attack in which 58 innocent people were gunned down by a reported madman from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay Vista Suite.

The Uber driver maintains that he dropped off a man named “Paddock” and a woman who said they were “in the military” and also made mention of a “terrorist attack.”

Never Forget: George Bush's Wars Set The Stage For 25 Years Of Endless War

By 1989, it had become apparent to all - everyone except the CIA, of course - that the Soviet economy, and thus the Soviet state was in very deep trouble.

In November 1989, the Berlin Wall came down in the face of Soviet impotence. And, with the Cold-War corpse not even cold yet, president George Bush used the newly apparent Soviet weakness as an opportunity to expand US foreign interventionism beyond the limits that had been imposed on it by a competing Soviet Union. Over the next decade, Bush and his successor Bill Clinton — who very much carried on Bush's ideals of global interventionism — would place Iraq, Somalia, and Yugoslavia in the crosshairs.

US Senators Say ‘Zero Doubt’ Crown Prince Ordered Khashoggi’s Murder

Tuesday morning’s testimony by CIA Director Gina Haspel on the murder of Jamal Khashoggi has those senators permitted to attend more convinced than ever that the Saudi Crown Prince was behind the plot. Senators are now saying they have “zero doubt” that is indeed what happened.

In early October, reporter Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, and was never seen again. Saudi officials have confirmed that a 15-man kill team dispatched to the consulate killed him, though they have persistently denied that the crown prince was involved.

As Khashoggi was a permanent US resident, this murder is a matter of some import, and many in Congress want a clear rebuke of the Saudis for killing him. Haspel’s testimony was closed-door and classified, but those senators who spoke to reporters said she confirmed the suspicions.

Rand Paul rips 'deep state' for freezing him out of CIA briefing on Khashoggi killing

Sen. Rand Paul issued a rhetorical broadside against the “deep state” this week for freezing him out of a CIA briefing on slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The Kentucky lawmaker was excluded from a group on Tuesday that met with CIA Director Gina Haspel. Accusations that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing have put the Trump administration in a diplomatic bind.

“This is the very definition of the deep state. The deep state is that the intelligence agencies do things, conclude things, make conclusions, but then the elected officials are prevented from knowing about this,” Mr. Paul told Fox News.

He added that “the deep state” will continue to amass “more power” until the status quo changes, The Washington Examiner reported.

George H. Walker Bush: The Bush Family and the Mexican Drug Cartel

The personal relationship between the Bush and Salinas families was a matter of public record. Former President George H. W. Bush had developed close personal ties with Carlos Salinas and his father, Raul Salinas Lozano. (left)

Raul Salinas Lozano was the family patriarch, father of Carlos and Raul Junior. According to the former private secretary to Raul Salinas Lozano (in as statement to US authorities):

“… Mr. Salinas Lozano was a leading figure in narcotics dealings that also involved his son, Raul Salinas de Gortari, his son-in-law, Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu, the No. 2 official in the governing Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, and other leading politicians, according to the documents. Mr. Ruiz Massieu was assassinated in 1994.” (Dallas Morning News, 26 February 1997, emphasis added).

Former president George H. W. Bush and Raul Salinas Lozano were “intimo amigos”.

Intercepted Messages Fill in Details on Murder of Khashoggi

The Trump Administration has settled decisively on not blaming the Saudi Crown Prince for murdering reporter Jamal Khashoggi. The evidence underpinning this allegation, at least from the CIA assessment, centers of intercepted messages.

The Saudi Crown Prince wasn’t physically in Istanbul doing the murdering, and that seems to be the sum total of the uncertainty that the administration is resting on. His closest adviser was there, however, overseeing the murder. The CIA also intercepted 11 messages from the prince to this adviser in the hours immediately leading up to and following the murder.

Another intercept the CIA got from the crown prince pointed to the underlying plot itself, with the prince saying “we could probably lure Khashoggi outside Saudi Arabia and make arrangements” even if they couldn’t lure him back to Saudi Arabia.

Friend of Khashoggi sues Israeli spyware company

Saudi activist Omar Abdulaziz filed a lawsuit against Israeli cyber warfare company NSO Group in Tel Aviv on Sunday, on the basis that the company’s malware intercepted conversations between the activist and slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The lawsuit alleges the spyware company violates international law through selling its software to oppressive regimes that use it to violate human rights, CNN reported.

Khashoggi disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, where he was killed and dismembered by a hit squad sent from Saudi Arabia.

After a number of attempts at muddying the waters, Saudi Arabia eventually admitted the Washington Post columnist was slain inside the building.
