Amazon Tribe Wins Lawsuit To Save Half A Million Acres Of Rainforest

We all need to do our bit to save the rainforests, as they are super important to all life on the planet. They create so much oxygen to help keep us alive. The trees also use carbon dioxide, thereby reducing global warming. The Amazon Rainforest is the biggest in the world, but destruction happens at a faster rate each year. Luckily, people are starting to take notice and do something about its destruction. The latest people to do so are an Amazon tribe.

The Waorani people are native to Ecuador and have lived there for centuries. In recent years, they have been fighting a legal battle against big oil that nobody thought they could win.

Rick Singer Advised White Parents to Claim Their Kids Were Nonwhite on College Applications

The man behind the scheme to help wealthy students get into elite colleges by cheating on tests and faking athletic credentials also advised some families to falsely claim students were racial minorities, exploiting the push to diversify campuses, according to two people familiar with the situation.

A son of Marjorie Klapper, a parent scheduled to plead guilty Friday for participating in the scheme, was incorrectly listed on his Common Application as being black and Hispanic, the people said. William “Rick” Singer, the college counselor who has agreed to plead guilty in the case and is awaiting sentencing, also arranged for a proctor to cheat on the ACT admissions test for the teen, according to a Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit filed in the case. …

Former Onion editor sorry for helping to create 'lovable' Joe Biden image now that he's Democratic presidential front-runner

In a Thursday essay for Vice, Joe Garden bared his soul for helping to create a popular-but-false image of Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden, confessing that if folks out there ever viewed the former vice president as a "clueless but lovable clod, a well-meaning klutz who is predictable, friendly, and ultimately electable, I am in small part responsible for that image. And I'm sorry."

FACEBOOK ADMITS ISRAELI SOCIAL MANIPULATION COMPANY SPENT $800,000 TO INFLUENCE AFRICAN ELECTIONS

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
In keeping with their spectacular reputation of violating privacy and rigging elections, Facebook has said that it removed "hundreds of accounts" from Facebook and Instagram that were used to influence elections in Africa, according to CNN. Only it wasn't Russia who was behind this latest intervention, but Israel.
Archimedes Group, an Israeli company, reportedly spent more than $800,000 in advertising (far more than the Kremlin allegedly spent on its "ad campaign" to crush Hillary Clinton and get Trump elected) and ran accounts that had nearly 3 million followers, for the purpose of targeting African elections. The group primarily targeted Nigeria, Senegal, Togo, Angola, Niger and Tunisia.

For perspective, the $800,000 reportedly spent by the group compares to the $100,000 that has been claimed by the U.S. mainstream media to have been spent for ‘Russian bots’ used to allegedly sway the 2016 US presidential election, according to RT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised at this revelation.

Most the worlds's precious, and yet-to-be-exploited commodities, can be found in Africa; it is no wonder Israel sought to exploit those elections for economic gain.

THE NORMALIZATION AND INSTITUTIONALIZATION OF FRAUD

SOURCE: CHARLES HUGH SMITH
Normalizing and institutionalizing fraud undermines the foundations of the economy and the financial system.

I am indebted to Manoj Samanta (twitter: @flation_debate) for the insightful concept the commoditization of fraud. The first step in the commoditization of fraud is to normalize fraud as Business as Usual (BAU) to the point that it's no longer viewed as "wrong," destructive or an aberration of evil-doers but as an accepted way to maximize gain and offload risk onto others.

The last step in the process is to institutionalize fraud within central banking and government policies.

How is selling shares in a money-losing corporation at outlandish valuations not the commoditization of fraud? The fraud has been normalized into a game of hoping that greater fools will be so enamored of the normalized fraud that they'll take the IPO shares off your hands at ever-higher valuations until the fraud breaks down.

 PRESCRIPTION FOR VIOLENCE: THE CORRESPONDING RISE OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS, SSRIS & MASS SHOOTINGS

Seemingly every time a mass shooting occurs, whether it’s at a synagogue in Pittsburgh or a nightclub in Orlando, the anti-gun media and politicians have a knee-jerk response – they blame the tragedy solely on the tool used, namely firearms, and focus all of their proposed “solutions” on more laws, ignoring that the murderer already broke numerous laws when they committed their atrocity.

Facts matter when addressing such an emotionally charged topic, and more gun control legislation has shown that law-abiding Americans who own guns are not the problem. Consider the following: The more gun control laws that are passed, the more mass murders have occurred.

Israel claims its troops didn't kill paraplegic Palestinian

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli army on Friday closed a criminal investigation into the death of a paraplegic Palestinian man shot while demonstrating along Gaza's border with Israel in 2017, saying the probe found "no evidence" that its soldiers fired the fatal bullet.

The army described the protest in which 29-year-old Ibrahim Abu Thraya was killed as a "violent riot," and said troops responded by opening fire toward the lower body parts of "main instigators."

As part of its investigation, the military said it tried to obtain the bullet that killed Abu Thraya, but Palestinian authorities denied its request.

Witnesses at the time said no gunfire came from the Palestinian side. Palestinians and human rights groups claimed he was shot by an Israeli sniper

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! shooting a paraplegic Palestinian in the head; that must REALLY make the IDF feel infinitely more butch.

And these investigations are only to whitewash the IDF's crimes against Palestinians.

US Gov't Now Openly Admits Pentagon Asks for Money to Directly Fund Terrorists

Source: Matt Agorist @ The Free Thought Project

(Support Free Thought) - For the last several decades, the US government has openly funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world to forward an agenda of destabilization and proxy war. It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory—America arms bad guys. The situation has gotten so overtly corrupt that the government just admitted the Pentagon asked Congress for funding to reimburse terrorists for their transportation and other expenses. Seriously.

“The Defense Department requested fiscal 2020 funding to support certain reconciliation activities, including logistic support for members of the Taliban and, in March 2019, they sent a notification letter to the Committee on using fiscal year 2019 funds for similar activities,” a spokesman for House Appropriations subcommittee on Defense Chairman Peter J. Visclosky (D-Ind.) told Roll Call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great; how swell!!

Seriously; if the US government is funding terrorists, to achieve particular geopolitical outcomes, our government stinks, and it is high time to fire them (peacefully), by handing them their hats, come the next election day.

The only problem with that, is that computers make election fraud so easy, that many times, particularly close races can be "turned" in one or another candidates' favor.

And if you have not yet seen the video, "Hacking Democracy", with all the brouhaha going on about the 2020 election cycle, you need to see this now.

Not Just Florida: Border Patrol To Fly Thousands Of Illegal Migrants To San Diego

Now, we learn that San Diego will receive hundreds of migrant families from South Texas for processing, as the agency struggles to keep up with large numbers of Central Americans who have flooded into the country. The agency said that it was also considering distributing apprehended border-crossers to Detroit, Miami and Buffalo, New York, according to the Globe and Mail.

Flights from Texas' Rio Grande Valley to San Diego were slated to begin on Friday - continuing three times a week indefinitely. Each flight will carry 120 - 135 people, according to the Border Patrol's interim San Diego sector chief, Douglas Harrison. Conservatively, that means at least 1,440 migrants per month, or 17,280 annually.

"We don’t have an end date," said Harrison. "This is a contingency operation. We’ve got to give the people in Rio Grande Valley some relief."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are we unable to stop these people at the Mexican border?!?

And who is going, please, to be paying for their educations; their health care; and their housing.?!?

Well, take a good look in the mirror, my friends, because it will be We the People, saddled with these costs.

Was Lyme disease created by William Burgdorferi as part of a US bioweapons research program?

One of the most under-diagnosed illnesses in the world, Lyme disease is a growing health problem for many nations, especially in the northern hemisphere. Ever since the Dr. Rath Research Institute started its scientific work on the natural treatment of this condition, my colleagues and I have found it puzzling that a bacterium with such widespread and devastating consequences as Borrelia could somehow have escaped the serious attention of medical researchers for more than a century. While a German physician, Alfred Buchwald, was the first to document the disease in a study in 1883, albeit essentially describing it as a chronic inflammation of the skin, the Lyme disease syndrome as we now understand it was not officially recognized until 1975 when a cluster of cases was identified in the United States. Even today, it remains the case that conventional medicine has no reliably effective treatment for the illness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would not put it past the US military, that this may have originated as a "biological weapon of mass destruction."

Iranian Special Forces Have Not Attacked Americans Since the 1990s

Source: deepstateblog.org

In the growing confrontation between the United States and Iran, the Iranian special forces, known as the Qods Force, will play a leading role in defending Iran.

[For more on the Qods Force and the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security, click here.]

While the U.S. officials have claimed knowledge of specific and credible threats against American interests, the Iranians do not have a record of attack Americans, at least not recently.

A 2017 Congressional Research Service report lists all known Iranian attacks or planned attacks on Western targets. Only three of them took place in the 21st century. Only one took place in America and none resulted in the death or injury to any American.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran has not attacked Americans recently, because they understand, with a sure and certain knowledge, that such an act will result in Israel's the US's turning their country into a sea of molten glass, before things are over.

There have been stories around the end of last week, where President Trump has informed his aides that he does not want a military conflict with Iran. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-iran-trump/trump-tells-aides-he-d....

But his big worry is, will the state of Israel listen?!?

My thought is, hell no.

They have gotten him close to a commitment, from which he appears to be edging away right now, and time... is not on Israel's side.

Do not be surprised to see an Israeli-generated false flag attack to happen in the week and days to come, with which to smear Iran, and "get the party started." Israel has full knowledge of where US troops are in the region, and it appears to me, that some of them will, unfortunately, become the "sacrificial lambs" to ensure Israel's game plan.

The US accidentally killed more than a dozen Afghan policemen in an airstrike after a 'miscommunication'

A US airstrike conducted Thursday in Afghanistan killed more than a dozen local policemen and wounded just as many.

When a firefight broke out between the Taliban and the local police force after the latter attempted to take down a Taliban flag in southern Helmand province, Afghan forces on the ground called in an airstrike, telling the US that the area was clear of friendlies, Stars and Stripes reported, citing Resolute Support.

Unfortunately, they were not, and a tragic accident resulted," the NATO mission in Afghanistan explained in its statement. "We're examining the miscommunication to ensure it is not repeated. We regret this tragic loss of life of our partners and are committed to improvement every day with every mission."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a military which is touted to Americans as "the best on the planet", why the hell do incidents like this keep occurring in Afghanistan?!?

Germany votes to define BDS as anti-Semitic

Source: Middle East Monitor

Germany today voted to define the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement as anti-Semitic, becoming the first major European parliament to do so.

The German parliament – known as the Bundestag – this afternoon voted to accept a motion defining BDS as anti-Semitic. The motion, “Resist the BDS Movement – Fighting Antisemitism,” was sponsored by the Bundestag’s two largest parties – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian-Democratic Union and the Social Democrat party – as well as the Green Party and the Free Democratic Party.

The text of the motion stated that “the German Bundestag is unwavering in its commitment to condemn and combat anti-Semitic in all its forms,” stressing it will oppose “anyone who defames people because of their Jewish identity […] questions the right of the Jewish and democratic state of Israel to exist or Israel’s right to defend itself.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One cannot logically conflate Judaism... with the actions of the Israeli state; the people in the Knesset, must be jumping for joy right now, in their happiness.

What this ruling has done, has been to further destroy any possibility of a meaningful, contiguous Palestinian state.

Iraqi Parliament to Vote on Bill That Would Ban US Military Troops From Iraq

Source: Anti Media

(ANTIWAR.COM) — Iraq has spent the better share of the last 16 years under US military occupation. Despite this, time and again US-Iraqi relations have come to be defined by US hostility toward neighboring Iran, and Iraq’s desire to not get mixed up in that.

So while Iraq’s parliament was already bristling under Pentagon talk of staying in Iraq, and Trump saying that the US was staying in Iraq to “keep an eye on Iran,” the recent escalation of US rhetoric about a war against Iran has sparked action within parliament.

On Saturday, Iraq will be voting on a bill that would aim to expel all foreign troops from Iraqi soil, and singles out US troops in particular as needing to leave. The bill is endorsed by Iraq’s top two Shi’ite blocs, and is expected to pass fairly easily.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All well and good; but how is the Iraqi Parliament going to be able to make this work, particularly if escalation against Iran creates a shooting war?!?
