Music Producer Mark Ronson Identifies As ‘Sapiosexual’

Add the term "sapiosexual" to the lexicon of sexual identities if you haven't already heard of it. Apparently, the term has been making the rounds for several years and it pertains to being attracted to a human being's intelligence before sexual attraction develops, regardless of the person's gender.

Person Says It's Not Fair Police Officers Have Only 6 Months Of Training, Starts An Interesting Discussion

A simple search on YouTube might give you plenty of videos featuring police officers “getting owned” by law experts. And a lot of cop jokes next to them. But all kidding aside, how big of a problem is this? Recently, one protester put up a sign comparing the time it takes to become a police officer and a lawyer, asking if it’s reasonable for someone to put equal amounts of trust in their actions. After a photo of the sign went viral, people began searching for the answer.

Court Shoots Down Cop's Assertion That Driving Without Breaking Any Laws Is 'Suspicious'

because drug traffickers have been seen breathing, then breathing is an indicia of drug trafficking. Because they normally have two hands, then having two hands is an indicia of drug smuggling. Silly — maybe, but one can wonder if that is the direction we are heading. Whether it be driving a clean vehicle, or looking at a peace officer, or looking away from a peace officer, or a young person driving a newer vehicle, or someone driving in a car with meal wrappers, or someone driving carefully, or driving on an interstate, most anything can be considered as indicia of drug trafficking to law enforcement personnel.

Why Conservatives Ignore White-Hating Politics

In “It’s Not ‘Identity Politics,’ It’s Anti-White Politics,” I questioned whether the term “identity politics” vaguely comports with our racial politics on tera firma. The answer was a resounding “no.”

For, “Whatever is convulsing the country, it’s not identity politics. Blacks are not being pitted against Hispanics. Hispanics are not being sicced on Asians, and Ameri-Indians aren’t being urged to attack the groups just mentioned. Rather, they’re all piling on honky.”

Since the ire of America’s multicultural multitudes is directed exclusively at whites and their putative privilege, not at each other, anti-white animus is the more appropriate term.

Edward Snowden: France rejects new asylum request from NSA whistleblower

France’s foreign minister said they will not be granting former US National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden asylum because “it is not the time”.

The whistleblower, who has been living in Russia to escape US prosecution, had said he would “love to see” Emmanuel Macron allow him to live in France.

He unsuccessfully applied in 2013 and asked again this week, arguing that “protecting whistleblowers is not a hostile act”.

Mr Snowden leaked classified documents detailing government surveillance programmes in 2013.

Confirmed: American Airlines Mechanic Who Allegedly Sabotaged Plane Has Terrorist Ties To ISIS

A former American Airlines mechanic who was arrested days before Sept. 11 for allegedly sabotaging an airplane — who at the time said the act was part of a labor dispute and because he wanted overtime — has terrorist ties and wanted Allah to harm non-Muslims, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, who is originally from Iraq but gained U.S. citizenship, had Islamic State videos on his phone, said Allah wanted to hurt non-Muslims, and recently returned from a trip to Iraq, prosecutors said. The federal prosecutors presented the evidence at a bail hearing in Miami.

Luongo: Will The Yemen War Be The End Of Saudi Arabia?

Authored by Tom Luongo, Zero Hedge

The attack on Saudi Arabia’s major oil processing station in Abqaiq over the weekend was a major turning point in global politics. It may be even bigger than many of us realize.

While forces within U.S. political circles, Israel and Saudi Arabia keep trying to shift the blame to Iran, the most likely scenario is that the Houthis in North Yemen were responsible for the attack as a follow up to last month’s hit which showed off the capabilities of their new drones.

That attack set the stage for the latest one in a classic case of the past being prologue. By showing the world it was capable of throwing drones anywhere in Saudi Arabia rebels in Yemen created plausibility for last weekend’s attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there is a question which must be asked of our weapons makers, in closed door meetings ,with secure communications protocols in place, with President Trump attending every one of them, actually or virtually, particularly those who supported Candidate Trump when he ran for President in 2016;

Why did US military weapons have a 100 % failure rate during these attacks against the Saudi oil infrastructure?!?

Because I can tell you that global weapons buyers for their countries are looking at each other with astonishment, that the very weapons the US pedals to other countries, as the alleged "best of the best of the best", are the same weapons which failed, so critically, in the attack?!?

Grade-Rigging Scandal: Baltimore Students Missed 100+ Days Of School, Failed Classes, Still Graduated

For the last several years, we have been covering the grade-changing scandal in Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS). Administrators, teachers, and parents continue to come forward about the widespread fraud that allows children to graduate, even though they've missed school or failed classes.

Project Baltimore, who has spearheaded the investigation into BCPS fraud, has uncovered another school where students missed more than 100 days of class or failed ten courses in three years, still graduated during the 2019 school year.

?
@FOXBaltimore

City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises accuses Project Baltimore of “sensationalism” and has “violated even the lowest standard of decency.” Fox45 requested an interview with Dr. Santelises concerning the allegations; we haven’t heard back. https://foxbaltimore.com/news/project-baltimore/city-schools-ceo-issue...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not expect any teacher here to get fired; I am reasonably certain that they were forced to do this by their Union Leadership, because the numbers in terms of actual class attendance and and accomplishment were so horrific.

I have every respect for the good teachers in our system; but unfortunately, the system tends to punish good teachers (remember the film, "Stand and Deliver?!?) while promoting those who do nothing, except encourage mediocrity, and bear responsibility for the innumerate; illiterate; and inability to think logically state of far too many of our high school students.

The only things for which they will be qualified, are getting hired for "Rent-a-mob" jobs, and whatever bounty of public assistance for which they may well qualify.

City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises may scream at Project Baltimore all she wants; but if the information here is true, she needs to turn in her resignation papers right now, so she can protect whatever cushy union retirement benefits are left to her.

Because the failures of this school, and broken promises to parents, and students has been a constant for some time now. The System is Broken, 2017; Angry Dad lashes out when his 12th grader tests at 4th grade mathematics

Escobar: How The Houthis Overturned The Chessboard

Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Saker blog,

The Yemeni Shiite group’s spectacular attack on Abqaiq raises the distinct possibility of a push to drive the House of Saud from power.

Houthi striking capability – from drone swarms to ballistic missile attacks – has been improving remarkably for the past year or so. It’s not by accident that the UAE saw which way the geopolitical and geoeconomic winds were blowing: Abu Dhabi withdrew from Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s vicious war against Yemen and now is engaged in what it describes as a “peace-first” strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That it was not expected that the Houthis could ever fight back, and in such an intensely destructive fashion, may have been the most spectacular failure of imagination, on the part of both American, and Saudi, intelligence.

Unfortunately, this moment of awareness has not stopped the US and Saudi Arabia from continuing to blame Iran (a convenient whipping boy, due to its oil wealth (and a product which they refuse to sell in US dollars) and general stability in the region.

I would like to politely suggest that both countries examine the statement of a Russian diplomat at the end of a consortium, stating the following:

Iran won't be alone if the US attacks it

This was stated by Iranian diplomat Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

I would strongly caution both the US and Saudi Arabia that this came down from the "big guy" himself, in Russian Politics, President Putin; I would also strongly caution both countries, that Putin meant what Kabulov stated.

Chinese Scientists Have Allegedly Developed A Weapon For "Crowd Control"

According to the South China Morning Post, the device’s “biological effect” would cause extreme discomfort, with vibrations in the eardrums, eyeballs, stomach, liver, and brain, scientists said. Studies dating to the 1940s found that low-frequency sound energy could cause dizziness, headaches, vomiting, bowel spasms, involuntary defecation, organ damage, and heart attacks. This all depends on frequency and exposure, but in Communist China, it really isn’t likely much thought will be given to the health of the slaves the government intends to use this on.

The Chinese government launched the sonic weapon program back in 2017 and its conclusion is likely to be related to the months of anti-government protests in Hong Kong, regardless of what the state-owned media is claiming. That means the government intends to use the force and violence to control people protesting their use of force and violence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US Cities and police departments have been using a similar device for some time now; it is called the LRAD.

What is it like when the police use an LRAD Sound Cannon to disperse a crowd?!?!

Martial Law Masquerading As Law And Order: The Police State's Language Of Force

Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

“Since when have we Americans been expected to bow submissively to authority and speak with awe and reverence to those who represent us? The constitutional theory is that we the people are the sovereigns, the state and federal officials only our agents. We who have the final word can speak softly or angrily. We can seek to challenge and annoy, as we need not stay docile and quiet.”

- Justice William O. Douglas, dissenting, Colten v. Kentucky, 407 U.S. 104 (1972)

Forget everything you’ve ever been taught about free speech in America.

It’s all a lie.

There can be no free speech for the citizenry when the government speaks in a language of force.

What is this language of force?

Pelosi Unloads On Nadler; Tells Him To Drop 'Moby Dick'-Like Impeachment Obsession

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler last week over his 'Moby Dick'-like obsession with impeaching President Trump - days before Trump's 2016 campaign manager Corey Lewandowski wiped the floor with Congressional Democrats during a contentious five-hour hearing on Tuesday in front of Nadler's panel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Both Nancy Pelosi and Jerry Nadler are perfect examples of why term limits need to be imposed not only on the President, but also on Congressional Representatives.

Trump Whistleblower Drama Puts Biden In The Hot Seat Over Ukraine

For days we've been treated to MSM insinuations that President Trump may have betrayed the United States after a whistleblower lodged an 'urgent' complaint about something Trump promised another world leader - the details of which the White House has refused to share.

Then, we learned it was a phone call.

Then, we learned it was several phone calls.

Now, we learn it wasn't Russia or North Korea - it was Ukraine!

Here's the scandal; It appears that Trump, may have made promises to newly minted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky - very likely involving an effort to convince Ukraine to reopen its investigation into Joe Biden and his son Hunter, after Biden strongarmed Ukraine's prior government into firing its top prosecutor - something Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani have pursued for months. There are also unsupported rumors that Trump threatened to withhold $250 million in aid to help Ukraine fight Russian-backed separatists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is no small wonder, as events unfolded, that the Demonocrats are petrified that the Trump Russiagate story went nowhere; so IF these reports are true, it like the buzzards are well and truly coming home to roost, concerning Biden's Presidential campaign.

Yves Saint Laurent's Knit Bridal Gown: A Famously Bizarre Fuzzy Cocoon

French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent was known for pushing the envelope with the styles he created under his brand beginning in the 1960s. One thing he enjoyed doing was looking for fashion inspiration outside of Paris, even outside of Europe. In 1965, he took inspiration from the iconic Russian nesting dolls to design a wedding gown that still has people talking today. Unfortunately, it's for all the wrong reasons. For such a well-respected and influential fashion designer, most of the world believes that Yves Saint Laurent missed the mark with his knit bridal gown of 1965. Let's take a closer look at this crime of fashion.

War Elephants Were So Scary, They Created War Pigs

Always keen to get a leg up on the enemy, military leaders have often looked to animals to give them a wartime advantage. Horses, naturally, were trained to carry soldiers into battle. The stories of Hannibal taking war elephants over the Alps during the Second Punic War are legendary. But did you know that several other animals were also used in ancient warfare? Monkeys, dogs, rhinoceroses, and even cats were used for military purposes. It was the enormous elephants, however, that proved to be formidable---that is, until clever commanders discovered the best way to disrupt the army of elephants was with their own four-legged troops. This is the story of how war pigs were used to battle war elephants in ancient Rome. Yes, really!
