Venezuela's exiled justice department calls for Interpol arrest of Maduro and 18 years for corruption

Venezuela's justice department in exile has requested an international arrest warrant, also known as a red notice, for Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro.

The Supreme Tribunal of Justice in exile accused Maduro of corruption in a letter to Jürgen Stock, the secretary-general of Interpol, dated on Monday.

The exiled department, which calls itself the Legitimate TSJ, was established in 2017 amid a constitutional change.

It said that Maduro accepted, directly or indirectly, funds from illegal activity and called for 18 years and three months in jail.

"As a result of the aforementioned, this Plenary Chamber considered it appropriate to request that Interpol issue a red notice for Nicolás Maduro Moros for the purposes of international cooperation on common crimes for the apprehension of the above-mentioned subject," said the letter, which was addressed from Coral Gables, Florida.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing here.

Just a few days ago, President Trump was floating the concept of declaring Venezuela as "a state sponsor of terror" President preparing to Label Venezuela as a "state sponsor of terror"

This classification gives the President more room as to what military/economic actions he can take, against such an alleged "state sponsor of terrorism".

And is this letter to Interpol has been mailed from Coral Gables Florida?!?

Wait a minute: Didn't Maduro claim that the attempted assassination against him came from disgruntled Venezuelans living in Florida?!? Maduro Blames Florida residents in Assassination Attempt

Were I Maduro right now, I would be definitely be wearing my Kevlar undies at this moment. It looks like something huge may be coming down in the not too distant future for Venezuela, perhaps timed during the Thanksgiving holiday, when Americans are distracted with food and football.

GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK ARE GOBBLING UP THE INTERNET'S SUBSEA CABLES

More than 5,700 kilometres of the Atlantic Ocean separate the coastlines of France and Virginia. But in 2020 they will be directly connected for the first time by the Dunant submarine cable which will boost internet capacity between Europe and the east coast of the US.

When Dunant becomes operational it will join more than 428 submarine cables, spanning thousands of kilometres, that makeup the backbone of the internet. But this cable is unlike any other.

Named after the Henry Dunant, the founder of the Red Cross and winner of the first Nobel Peace Prize, the cable is owned by Google. It's the first transatlantic submarine cable that has been privately financed and deployed by one of the big tech firms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This acquisition and building of sub-sea cables, will give Google even more control over content; be able to offer it to the highest bidder, and suppress independent media even more than it already does through its algorithms.

Remember what happened in pre-World War II, right after Hitler came to power in Germany??!?

He established control of all German media. He could spin any story in any direction he wanted, and did so with impunity.

FORD CEO FRANKLY ADMITS THAT THE CAR OF THE FUTURE IS A SURVEILLANCE DEVICE THAT YOU PAY TO SPY ON YOU

But the dream of extractive rentierism still haunts the managerial classes.

Take Ford CEO Jim Hackett, whose recent Freakonomics Radio appearance celebrated his company's shift from a car business to a debt-issuance business, with Ford Credit now accounting for a third of the company's profits. Hackett vowed to increase that share by using the leverage he could exert over his debtors to force them to let him spy on them (for example, by doubling down on GM's car radio surveillance), and then cross-referencing this data on the data borrowers are forced to supply in order to buy their cars, and with data-sets from corporate acquisitions like the scooter company Spin.

AMERICANS TURNING ON SOCIAL MEDIA, MOST THINK IT HURTS DEMOCRACY: POLL

U.S. adults have begun to turn on social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, and a majority believes that these social media platforms have done more to hurt democracy and free speech than help.

Last year, 43 percent of U.S. adults thought social media hurt society, but that increased to 57 percent in 2018, according to an Axios poll conducted through mid November.

Both Democrats and Republicans have soured on social media, as Republicans have claimed censorship of conservative voices, and Democrats have complained about the use of targeted ads that they say can be used to discriminate against minorities.

Nine percent more Democrats believe social media hurts free speech than last year, and 17 percent more Republicans feel that way, the poll said.

WITH SAUDIS’ GLOBAL BACKERS BACKING AWAY, YEMENI FACTIONS PREPARE FOR PEACE TALKS

Peace in Yemen could not come at a more crucial time. Yemeni factions are preparing for peace talks in Sweden at the end of November while Saudi Arabia faces intense scrutiny and pressure from its Western allies, as well as possible action from the United Nations Security Council, for leaving nearly 22 million Yemenis requiring urgent humanitarian aid at the mercy of the famine and disease that the Saudi-led coalition has leveraged as weapons of war.

As of July, the coalition’s war against Yemen had killed or injured 37,896 civilians, according to Yemen’s Legal Center for Rights and Development, which tracks civilian casualties. Since then, casualties have skyrocketed by 168 percent as a result primarily of the coalition’s bombardment of the densely populated port city of Hodeida.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed here; perhaps Khashoggi did not die in vain, if the eyes of the world are now focused on Saudi Arabia's and the US's war crimes in Yemen.

US AIRSTRIKES KILL AT LEAST 40, MOSTLY CIVILIANS, IN EASTERN SYRIA

Continuing weeks of near-daily civilian death tolls from the US air war in Eastern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has reported that Saturday’s US attacks killed 40 more people, overwhelmingly civilians. The victims were described as mostly women and children.

Saturday’s attacks were against the village of Abu al-Hassan, along the Iraq border. It is adjacent to the ISIS-held towns that the US has been mostly attacking in recent weeks, and which Kurdish ground troops are attempting to invade.

The Syrian Observatory said it was unclear if any of the men killed in the attacks were actually militants, but that 17 children and 12 women were confirmed among the slain. In general, these attacks have targeted residential areas, not militants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please; the collective assassination of innocents is a war crime, sir.

SAUDI FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS CIA ASSESSMENT ON KHASHOGGI MURDER IS FALSE

Saudi Arabia’s foreign minister said on Tuesday that claims, including by the CIA, that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman gave the order to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi were false, according to an Arabic-language newspaper interview, Reuters reports.

News outlets, including Reuters, reported the CIA’s finding over the weekend in a case that has sparked an international outcry against the world’s top oil exporter. This was the most definitive U.S. assessment to date tying Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler directly to the killing and contradicted Saudi government assertions that he was not involved.

“We in the kingdom know that such allegations about the crown prince have no basis in truth and we categorically reject them, whether through leaks or not,” Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir was quoted as saying in Saudi-owned Al Sharq Al Awsat newspaper in the first Saudi official comment on the CIA report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have two potential narratives here; either Prince Salman did order the hit, or he did not.

IF he did not order the hit, who in the Saudi royal family would have done that, to destabilize the Crown Prince's government; thought they could get away with it;, and be in contention for the title of Crown Prince if Bin Salman got sacked by his dad?!?

The House of Saud does not like its "dirty laundry" to be aired in public; Jamal Khashoggi most likely had no shortage of enemies would would have liked to have seen him murdered. But for Prince Bin Salman to have had this done in broad daylight, in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey?!?

There is still a great deal of evidence which has not yet been allowed to come forward from the Turkish authorities; I would like to hope that will change shortly.

THE ONLY REGIME CHANGE THAT IS NEEDED IS IN WASHINGTON

But my vote for the most magnificent nut in an Administration that is overflowing with such talent would be the esteemed United States Special Representative for Syria Engagement James Jeffrey. The accolade is in part due to the fact that Jeffrey started out relatively sane as a career diplomat with the State Department, holding ambassadorships in Iraq, Turkey, and Albania. He had to work hard to become as demented as he now is but was helped along the way by signing on as a visiting fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), which is a spin-off of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me, that my brother and sister Americans are back to a status quo ante, a status of feudal vassals, as we were before the American revolution.

And why do I say this?

Although this can be expressed as a grasp of the in-your-face obvious,the cold, hard reality that the government is only responsive to the already monied, to and certain foreign governments, Israel being among the worst offenders, in terms of having very effectively hijacked American foreign policy to their own ends.

What is great for Israel, is not at all necessarily good for We the People.

Yes, there are moments when a common good for both countries align; but in the world of the 21st century, those moments are consistently fewer and farther between, particularly when comes to the Zionist vision of "Eretz Israel", which means carving off hunks of adjacent countries to perfect and achieve that vision.

The maps tell the story:

Current map of Israel

Map: Eretz Israel

Notice the hunks of Iraq, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Jordan,Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq which will have to be conquered by Israel in order for this "vision" of Eretz Israel to be achieved?!?

It is no accident that Israel cheered for the US invasion and occupation of Iraq; it is no accident that they have cheered the illegal and unwanted US military actions against Syria, including funding and arming the jihadists against the government; it is no accident that they have started the "political rapprochement" process with Saudi Arabia, which they are hoping to use as a proxy force against Iran, working with the US military, as they have been doing in Yemen; and it is no accident that Israel fully expects the US to go to war against Iran for it.

But as always with Israel, these "wins" are only to be purchased primarily at the cost of American blood, and American money.

I look at the media buys the military has been doing lately, with a lot of saturation ads, to encourage our young men and women to join; but the US military is in one horrifically awful dilemma right now.

They don't have the troop strength; the weaponry; the manufacturing (outsourced in the 80s, to make way for the alleged "service economy")or the money to insure a successful outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

With the mid-terms over, before there is a war against Russia, China, and/or Iran, I would not bet against the re-institution of the draft, coupled with continuing demonization of Russia, China, and Iran.

Please remember the following reality, as stated on Google:

"Virtually all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service. The law says men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday."

Why Does America Have 13 Million Households That Don’t Have Enough Food To Eat?

Have you ever had a day when your children were crying due to hunger but the cupboards were completely bare and your bank account was empty? If you haven’t, you should consider yourself to be extremely blessed, because this is what real life feels like for millions upon millions of Americans in 2018. As you will see below, a third of all Americans cannot even afford “the basics” each month, and 13 million households are officially considered to be “food insecure”. In other words, they don’t have enough to eat. Many parents out there choose to skip a meal (or two) each day just so that their kids can have full stomachs. But sometimes the money runs out completely, and that is when it gets really tough.

The Empire Keeps Proving Assange Right About Everything

If you ask #Resistance Twitter, it’s because it’s #MuellerTime and Assange is about to be arrested under some mysterious charges involving WikiLeaks’ publication of non-government, non-classified emails in 2016. If you ask QAnon cultists, it’s because Donald Trump is planning to extradite Assange so as to rescue him and deal a fatal blow to the Deep State. If you ask people who actually know what they’re talking about, however, it’s most likely for WikiLeaks’ Afghanistan and Iraq war logs and/or last year’s CIA leak publications, and most likely using the Espionage Act. This would constitute a deadly blow to press freedoms, and arguably a greater leap in the direction of Orwellian dystopia than the Patriot Act. -- It also proves once again that Julian Assange was completely right.

Why Society Hates Men - MGTOW

The problem with western society playing the identity politics game is that it's quite hard to get men to play that game. Men aren't generally willing to play those games unless they are weak cucks looking to get laid by feminists and passing down their weak genes because they can't do it by competing with masculine men. The soviets tried to be sneaky when it comes to tricking men into identity politics by saying that workers were being oppressed by the bourgeoisie. The workers of course were mostly men. So lumping men together as oppressed workers got men to work towards building the soviet union. The west of course provided its workers a better standard of life and communism crumbled. As men we are for the most part individualistic and competitive. Capitalism works best for hard working, inventive and risk-taking male behavior. It doesn't work as well for other groups. So they get together and try to undermine capitialism using social justice and cultural marxism.

Will our smart devices become a massive surveillance network?

The rise of the digital era has brought with it many wondrous changes to our daily lives, not least of which the fact that we now carry digital assistants with us everywhere we go in the form of smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers. The rapid proliferation of everyday digital devices and the rise of new smart devices, which are more capable than ever before, carries with it worrying connotations about surveillance just as equally as it does positive ones of progress.

Will our smart devices become a massive surveillance network? You need not look to the future with dystopian fears when it comes to your smart devices – governments are already using them to spy on you today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this a trick question?

YET ANOTHER GDPR DISASTER: JOURNALISTS ORDERED TO HAND OVER SECRET SOURCES UNDER 'DATA PROTECTION' LAW

When the GDPR was being debated, we warned that it would be a disaster for free speech. Now that it's been in effect for about six months, we're seeing that play out in all sorts of ways. We've talked about how it was used to disappear public court documents for an ongoing case, and then used to disappear a discussion about that disappearing court document. And we wrote about how it's been used against us to hide a still newsworthy story (and that leaves out one other GDPR demand we've received in an attempt to disappear a story that I can't even talk about yet).

The Empire Keeps Proving Assange Right About Everything

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been charged under seal by the Trump administration. This has been revealed by a purportedly accidental copy-paste error in an unrelated court document which used Assange’s name, interestingly not long after it was reported to the Wall Street Journal that federal prosecutors “have considered publicly indicting Mr. Assange to try to trigger his removal from the embassy because a detailed explanation of the evidence could give Ecuadorean authorities reason to turn Assange over."

BANKRUPT SEARS WANTS TO GIVE EXECUTIVES $19 MILLION IN BONUSES

Sears is seeking court approval to pay executives as much as $19 million in quarterly bonuses while the company struggles to restructure in bankruptcy.

Three top executives could get nearly $1 million each if the company goes out of business. If Sears remains in business, they could get nearly $500,000 each for hitting the top performance targets.
Sears gets a little more time to stay in business
Sears gets a little more time to stay in business
Sears filed two different types of bonus plans in bankruptcy court Thursday. The first is for the top 18 "key" executives, who would collectively get as much as $2.1 million per quarter. The bonuses would only be paid in full if Sears reaches its cash-flow targets. Sears Holdings, which includes both Sears and Kmart, has been burning through cash at a rate of about $125 million a month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question I (and probably those hourly workers who will NOT get severance payment) are asking is, why should it be normal to pay executives whose decisions created a failed business model?!?

In my world, that money should rightly go to those who have been let go, and will find it horribly hard to find jobs, as the economy tightens.

I am very sure that SEARS picked the judges to hear this on the basis of their own personal wealth, (an easily attained statistic, if one knows how to look for the data), because the monied rarely eat their own, and that these judges would view these executives very sympathetically.

THE POLITICAL REBELLION GATHERS MOMENTUM

When was the last time a monopoly or quasi-monopoly was broken up? A generation ago, or was it two generations ago?

The Ruling Class that wants us to love our servitude incites us to seek divisions: between red and blue, left and right, progressive and conservative, and so on. The Ruling Class in the mainstream media, in Washington D.C. and in Silicon Valley are experts at manipulating language and terminology to divide and conquer.

But beneath the superficial red-blue divide they are hawking, a broad-based political rebellion against the Oligarchy and their Ruling Class nomenklatura is gathering momentum. People left, right and center are awakening to two painfully obvious realities:

1. the political-social-economic system no longer works for the bottom 95%

2. the system is intrinsically unfair--rigged to benefit the few at the expense of the many.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The key question here, is what happens when vote after vote changes nothing, and people get angry and despairing that any real change can happen through their peaceful, political process?!?

THAT ... is what this country's monied and elite need to be asking themselves right now.

ISRAEL POLICE TO RECOMMEND NETANYAHU BE TRIED FOR MEDIA CORRUPTION

Israel Police are willing to submit their recommendations to the Public Prosecutor’s Office regarding their investigation into allegations of corruption against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli media revealed on Friday.

Israel’s Channel 10 news reported that Case 4000 (sometimes known as the Bezeq case) will be the third file in which the police recommend Netanyahu be prosecuted for corruption, having previously recommended he be charged in both Case 1000 and Case 2000.

Channel 10 added that Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Benjamin Netanyahu, will also be investigated next month for her suspected involvement in Case 4000.

Commenting on the investigation, Netanyahu said that he is sure the case will be closed without presenting any indictments against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, with Defense Minister Lieberman having resigned last Thursday, and with Netanyahu so desperate to keep his coalition cabinet from falling into further disarray, look for something dramatic to keep the focus off him, and on some other criminal "state actor du jure" (Iran?!? Lebanon??Gaza?? Syria??)

Right now, as a geopolitically "wounded animal" and with opposition parties calling for early snap elections, he desperately needs a huge distraction to keep the media focus off of the potential trial, and on anywhere else possible.

BEWARE: POLICE NOW HAVE A SUPER-STRENGTH CAMERA WHICH CAN SPOT DRIVERS USING MOBILE PHONES OR SPEEDING NEARLY A MILE AWAY

Police have unveiled their new weapon – a camera that can produce clear images of people inside a car almost a mile away and dubbed ‘The Long Ranger’.

The massive camera has been showcased at the launch of a pilot project called Operation Indemnis.

Police in Gloucester are using the whopping camera to tackle motoring offences such as speeding, tailgating and using a mobile phone while driving.

Speed guns have been able to detect how fast cars travel but the new camera produces clear video footage and still photographs of the people inside them.

Martin Surl, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire where the kit is being tested, said he hoped that it would catch people using their mobile phones.

When contacted by Mail Online, his office claimed the new camera could produce clear images at twice the distance of a normal one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would tend to think that this new camera is not really about safety at all, but about building revenues from fines.

IN FIRST, US ENDORSES ISRAELI OCCUPATION OF GOLAN, VOTES AGAINST 9 ANTI-ISRAEL RESOLUTIONS

The US has, for the first time, endorsed the Israeli occupation of the Golan Heights by voting against an annual UN resolution that condemned the occupation and was unanimously approved along with several other resolutions against Tel Aviv.

The resolution titled “The occupied Syrian Golan,” adopted on Friday with 151 votes in favor, two against (Israel and the US), and 14 abstentions, condemns Israel for “repressive measures” against Syrian citizens in the Golan Heights.

The resolution, which was adopted during the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee (Fourth Committee), expresses deep concern that the Syrian Golan, occupied since 1967, has been under continued Israeli military occupation.

The non-binding annual resolution takes issue with the “illegality of the decision” taken by Israel “to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan,” which is illegal under international law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is it, that no matter which political party in this country wins or loses any election, Israel is always the winner?!?

"I Can Not Recall": The Reclamation of George W. Bush Is an American Tragedy

By Maj. Danny Sjursen
The whole charade plays best as farce. Absurdity incarnate. The sight of former President George W. Bush receiving a medal from Democrat Joe Biden – once an ardent opponent of Bush’s war policy – in Philadelphia for “his work with veterans,” on Veterans Day no less, induced nothing short of a gag from this veteran of two Bush wars – Iraq and Afghanistan.

George W. Bush, after all, led the U.S. military – to which I’ve dedicated my adult life – into two ill-advised perpetual wars, one of which was objectively illegal and immoral. In that war, in Iraq, some 7,000 American troops – including three of mine – were killed fighting in an unwinnable quagmire. Furthermore, though it slipped the attention of an American citizenry best known for its provincial inwardness, at least 250,000 Iraqis – mostly civilians – were killed. In a just world this would be labeled what it is – a war crime – but in this era of American hegemony, the populace simply sighs with apathy.

New Documents Reveal CIA Spied on Congress, Whistleblowers

Newly declassified documents reveal the CIA—which is supposed to be strictly limited in the types of surveillance and other secret operations it conducts on U.S. soil—routinely monitors U.S. government computer systems.

That information is contained in two formerly secret letters of “congressional notification” written in 2014 by the Intelligence Community inspector general at the time, Charles McCullough. In the letters, McCullough reveals the CIA secretly intercepted and collected emails between congressional staff and the CIA’s head of whistleblowing and source protection. The collection was said to occur as part of the CIA’s “routine counterintelligence monitoring of government computer systems.”

As the Obama DOJ Concluded, Prosecution of Julian Assange for Publishing Documents Poses Grave Threats to Press Freedom

The Trump Justice Department inadvertently revealed in a court filing that it has charged Julian Assange in a sealed indictment. The disclosure occurred through a remarkably amateurish cutting-and-pasting error in which prosecutors unintentionally used secret language from Assange’s sealed charges in a document filed in an unrelated case. Although the document does not specify which charges have been filed against Assange, the Wall Street Journal reported that “they may involve the Espionage Act, which criminalizes the disclosure of national defense-related information.”

SWEDEN: GREEN PARTY SUGGESTS CONFISCATING CITIZENS’ HOMES TO GIVE THEM TO MIGRANTS

The Green Party in Sweden has suggested confiscating the homes of citizens and giving them to migrants if the property is deemed to be too large or if the owner has more than one residence.

Blogger Katerina Janouch reveals how the party wanted to introduce a new law which would allow “Municipalities to seize housing to give them refugees.”

Under the proposal, authorities would be able to “evacuate people who have too large housing,” for example “couples where the children moved home or cohabited where the partner has a residence elsewhere.”

Under any such legislation, homeowners wouldn’t even be compensated, whereas before the government would have had to pay them at least 125% market value

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Taking a page out of the South Africa's, and Zimbabwe's play-book, are you, Sweden?!?

In Close Vote, House Blocks Debate on Yemen WarVote was tied to bill cracking down on gray wolves

On Wednesday, in a vote heavily along party lines, the House passed the Manage our Wolves Act 201-187. The vote effectively blocked all debate on the war in Yemen, and precluded that conflict from coming up for a future vote.

This is the second straight year that an attempt to challenge America’s unauthorized involvement in the Yemen War under the War Powers Act has been derailed by House leadership through last minute rule changes. This time, it required tying the rule change to a vote about gray wolves.

This led to a bizarre situation where they were debating the constitutionality of the Yemen War on one side, and the desire to shoot gray wolves on the other side. This was meant to give cover to lawmakers, to say they were voting because of the wolves instead of the unpopular Saudi-led war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How could you expect anything less from "alleged" representatives, when our President is rapidly earning his "merchant of death - in chief" title?!?

You have to wonder; how stupid, or plain crazy, was this move to tie it ton issue resolving the gray wolf problem?!? Perhaps they knew this conflation would be the KOD (Kiss of Death) in the issue of the US-Enabled Saudi War against Yemen?!?

And one has to wonder; just how much did Saudi Arabia "contribute" to the campaigns of those who chose to scotch the deal?!?

In this part of the 21st century's US political cycle, politicians are simply ""assets", to be sold to the highest corporate/state-sponsored bidder; they utterly no longer represent We the People; they represent "Those the Monied"

Forgive my cynicism here, but I am almost to the point of believing that if elections really changed anything in this country, they wouldn't be allowed to happen.

FIVE SAUDIS FACE DEATH PENALTY OVER KHASHOGGI KILLING; CROWN PRINCE CLEARED

Saudi Arabia public prosecutor Sheikh Shaalan al-Shaalan said on Thursday that the kingdom will seek the death penalty for five suspects among the 11 charged in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, confirming suspicions that members of the murder squad purportedly sent to "interrogate" Khashoggi will now themselves face beheadings as the Saudi Royal Family closes ranks around the Crown Prince, per the FT.

As for Mohammed bin Salman who runs the day to day affairs of the world’s top oil exporter and is the de facto head of OPEC, the prosecutor said had "no knowledge" of the mission, effectively absolving him of any domestic suspicion, if not international.

White House Weighs Kicking Out Cleric Gulen From US To Appease Erdogan; Lira Surges

In what is the most shocking geopolitical news of the day, NBC reports that the Trump administration is weighing extraditing the nemesis of Turkish President Recep Erdogan, cleric Fethulah Gulen who has been living for years in relative seclusion in rural Pennsylvania, from the U.S. in order to placate Turkey over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

According to the NBC report, Trump administration officials last month asked federal law enforcement agencies to examine legal ways of removing the exiled Turkish cleric in an attempt to persuade Erdogan to ease pressure on the Saudi government. The effort includes directives to the Justice Department and FBI that officials reopen Turkey's case for his extradition, as well as a request to the Homeland Security Department for information about his legal status, four sources told NBC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a Jean-Luc Picard double face palm, upon reading this!!

The White House HAS to know that this guy will get tortured to say ANYTHING Erdogan wants him to stay, and "publicly confess", and that he is able to absolutely bend DC to his will on this issue.

‘GOLDMAN SACHS IS IMPLICATED IN HISTORY’S LARGEST FINANCIAL CON – BUT WILL IT BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?’

Even by Wall Street standards of gouging customers this was one hell of a skim.

In 2012 and 2013, the Malaysian government was raising $6.5bn (£5bn) from investors to establish a sovereign wealth fund and finance various domestic infrastructure investment projects. And the cut for Goldman Sachs – the most prestigious investment bank in the world – for arranging the fundraising from the global capital markets? Ten per cent, or $600m.

Now we can have a guess as to why the Malaysian authorities were so insouciant about those extortionate fundraising costs: because they themselves were, apparently, going to loot the pot in one of the biggest frauds in history.

Malaysian politicians, officials and financiers had effectively bought Goldman Sachs’ blue chip reputation to pull in naive investors to the “1MDB” state investment fund. Ten per cent probably seemed a reasonable cut in the circumstances.

The question is: what did Goldman know about the theft?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The short answer to the question asked in the title of this story, is no.

The monied rarely eat their own.

OHIO STATE STUDENT GROUP: BEN SHAPIRO'S WORDS CAN 'THREATEN' 'MENTAL SAFETY'

A student group at Ohio State University (OSU) sent a warning to its members prior to a Tuesday by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

The Student Advisory Council of the Morrill Scholars Program at OSU sent an email in order to create “awareness around this event in preparation for the impact that his words, beliefs, and followers may have on our community.” The email specifically targeted Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and Shapiro, who is editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, and claims that many of his views are “misogynist,” “racist,” and “transphobic.”

A member of the Morrill Scholars Program confirmed the existence of the email to Campus Reform on Wednesday.

[RELATED: USC students falsely claim Ben Shapiro touts ‘eradication of entire races’]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but what kind of absolute, colossal bit of codswallop this is!!

IF, as a college student, you cannot verbally rebut, when you think that an idea or attitude is incorrect, and have the facts of your argument at your fingertips, then I am sorry for you, because your college education has been an utter, complete waste of time.

The "Real World" into which you will graduate, has no mercy on people who are incapable of dealing with an argument.

This world It is hard, fast, and will eat you up, and spit you out, if you are pathologically incapable of taking care of yourself, and not turning into a spineless plate of jello, every time you hear something that is contrary to your values. Because you will hear that... a lot.

So, Ohio State University students, life's tough; get a helmet!. And please, go see this lecture, and see if this man is really that terrifying, or ... if, perhaps, "influencers" on campus, really don't want you to go, not because they are " terrified" by his language, but that perhaps you will learn something that may well be contrary to currently held beliefs...and be the truth.

And we now have a follow-up to this story: SHOCK VIDEO: UNHINGED PROTESTERS TRY TO SHUT DOWN BEN SHAPIRO AT OHIO STATE

Antifa labels Jewish conservative a Nazi fascist.

This is an Orwellian moment, writ large; universities no longer teach, or encourage independent, critical thinking. Even though I might abhor what someone might say, I would defend their right to say it.

I thought that this was part of the core principals of the American democratic Republic.

But fast forward to this point in the 21st century, and we find that they are teaching identity politics, and demanding that students hate everyone they, and "the influencers" hate; it is just that simple.

COMPANIES KEEP LOSING YOUR DATA BECAUSE IT DOESN'T COST THEM ANYTHING

Data breaches keep happening, they keep getting worse, and yet companies keep collecting our data in ever-more-invasive ways, subjecting it to ever-longer retention, and systematically underinvesting in security.

Why does this keep happening? Because it's affordable. In 2014, Home Depot breached more than 50,000,000 credit-cards; in 2016, they paid less than $0.34/customer in restitution.

There are longer-term reputational costs associated with breaches, but these are not generally factored into the quarterly-earnings-focused mindsets of corporate execs and strategists.

An awful lot of change could be made simply by adjusting the law, and it needn't even be something as far reaching as the European General Data Protection Regulation: even establishing a set of statutory damages that people caught in breaches were entitled to collect, and banning the use of binding arbitration clauses to escape these liabilities would go a long way.

SOROS RESPONDS TO "ALARMING" FACEBOOK EXPOSÉ; DEMANDS "THOROUGH INVESTIGATION"

Following a shocking exposé in the New York Times revealing how Facebook resorted to guerilla tactics to deflect blame amid their various scandals, including hiring Republican PR firm Definers which cast liberal critics as operatives for liberal financier George Soros, top representatives for the Hungarian-American billionaire have demanded answers.

While Facebook was under fire on Capitol Hill for allowing Russians to purchase advertising during and after the 2016 US election, liberal critics blamed the company for Hillary Clinton's loss - including activist protesters who put a public face on liberal opposition to the social media giant.

Defenders sought to discredit the activists by linking them to Soros.

A research document circulated by Definers to reporters this summer, just a month after the House hearing, cast Mr. Soros as the unacknowledged force behind what appeared to be a broad anti-Facebook movement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Soros is no stranger to this type of accusation; but that being said, I do have to wonder, in light of the fact that he is the "open boarders yenta" of the West, ultimately responsible for the horrific, non-vetted immigration plaguing Europe right now, and ultimately trying to repeat that here in the US, how many of his NGOs have contributed greatly to this effort. So, here you go:

Caravan of illegals charity outed as George Soros-Funded Group

Soros Funding Border Caravan Invasion

Soros Funded Groups Backing Mexico Caravan of Socialists

George Soros Funded groups are supporting illegal immigration

George Soros' money is behind the immigrant caravan now at the US border

But hey, I have an idea; why can't all those illegals simply be dropped off en masse, at every property Soros owns, and perhaps on the Vatican as well.

And I suggest this, because I have never, once, heard in either Soros' speeches, or Pope Francis' homilies, that either man would want to invite these people to live where they live. That's just.... not their problem.

That's just for us mere serfs to work out, no matter how much the cost of housing, educating, feeding, and training these illegal immigrants would be, in order to absorb them into society.

And in light of the fact that this government is already at a 21 trillion dollar deficit, just how, please does that get paid for?!?

Pence: "All-Out Cold War" Coming If China Doesn't Change Course; "We Won't Back Down"

The Washington Post's Josh Rogin has revealed stunning comments issued by Vice President Mike Pence during a conversation between the two aboard Air Force Two as the VP traveled for an official trip to Asia this week, where he landed in Singapore for regional summits highlighting Indo-Pacific security, trade and investment.

Pence reportedly said the White House is prepared to undertake take dramatic policy changes regarding China if Beijing does not capitulate to its demands as the trade war continues. In addition to the issue of tariffs, pressing security issues include the US demanding Chinese cessation of what's reported to be widespread intellectual property theft and refusal to recognized America freedom of navigation through and above the South China Sea.

According to Rogin, Pence went so far as to speak of "an all-out Cold War" during the interview, promising that:

SoCal Fire May Have Ejected "Incredibly Dangerous" Radioactive Particles Into The Atmosphere

he 95,000 acre Woolsey fire which has coated Southern California with an apocalyptic orange glow may have released a toxic stew of radioactive particles and toxic chemicals into the air, after scorching the land on closed-down government weapons testing facility in Simi Hills known to be heavily contaminated from decades of experiments.

Commencing operation in 1947 for Rockwell's Rocketdyne Division, a government contractor for the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), the Santa Susana Field Lab (SSFL) has a checkered safety record, to put it lightly. In addition to several nuclear accidents - including the worst nuclear meltdown in US history, toxic materials have accumulated on-site from years of dumping, just miles from thousands of residents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

just like Fukushima, which was initially characterized as "not a danger to civilians living close to it.

These California officials understand that when the truth comes out, after a number of people get cancer due to exposure to these materials, there will be waves and waves of class-action lawsuits against the State, and the utility company which allowed faulty power lines not to be repaired.

Bolton Vows to ‘Squeeze’ Iran, Escalating Sanctions

With the newly reimposed US sanctions against Iran having little to no perceivable economic impact, national security adviser John Bolton is talking up his plans to continue to escalate the sanctions track, saying he will “squeeze Iran until the pips squeak.”

Bolton shrugged off the reality that Iran is still doing business internationally, saying that he believes Iran is “under real pressure” from the sanctions, and that he’s determined to see it keep getting worse.

Bolton went on to predict that the European efforts to keep trading with Iran would ultimately fail. He said the Europeans are going through the six stages of grief, and would ultimately lead to European acceptance of the US demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With sa growing number of countries ignoring the sanctions outright, what does Bolton think the US should do with all the countries still trading outright, declare war on them?!?

US Discusses Suspending Afghan Presidential Election

They’ve been profoundly corrupt and often meant little, but Afghanistan’s elections have long been enough to provide the illusion of a functioning democracy. The Trump Administration is in ongoing discussions on maybe backing away from that.

The Wall Street Journal reported ongoing discussions are being held at the behest of US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, who has been pushing the idea of telling the Afghan government to simply indefinitely suspend the presidential election, which is supposed to happen in April.

The US interest in this plan is apparently centered on the attempts to negotiate with the Taliban on settling the ongoing war, with officials, including Khalilzad, believing that such negotiations would be too hard in the middle of a nationwide election.

Russia announces Taliban’s demands for US

Afghanistan’s Taliban will negotiate with the central government in Kabul only after the United States agrees to leave the country, according to a senior Russian diplomat.

Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s special envoy for Afghanistan, announced the Taliban’s demands on Monday after hosting an international summit on the country’s crisis that was attended by other members of a security bloc led by Russia and China. The Taliban want the United States to undertake a number of “confidence-building measures,” starting with a deadline for a full withdrawal from the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps this is the reason why US Under Secretary of State David Hale got so thoroughly unhinged about this meeting with the Taliban and Russia, as to characterize them in the very negative way he did; he knew both what the Taliban wanted (a timetable for US military withdrawal), and that the US government would refuse these terms, immediately and unequivocally.

House Leadership Aims to Stop Debate on US Involvement in Saudi War in Yemen

On Wednesday, a measure is being advanced at the behest of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) aiming to derail House Continuing Resolution 138, a War Powers Act challenge which would force an end to the US military involvement in the Saudi-led War in Yemen.

Under the War Powers Act, any individual lawmaker is intended to be able to raise the matter of an unauthorized war for debate and a vote on the floor. Efforts to do so have failed, however, as the House leadership has used the Rules Committee to sidestep the issue.

This move to derail the debate is part of the first day of lame-duck House business, and Rep. Ryan and the other leaders seem to be hoping to turn the legal challenge of the war into a partisan issue. Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) accused the Republican leadership of shirking Congressional responsibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is all about two things; the billions the weaponry companies are making from Saudi Arabia,and about continuing and abetting their war crimes in Yemen, rather than having a national discussion of the moral costs to this country these actions have had. (warning: highly graphic images):

The Saudis are assassinating women, children, or maiming them for life with their bombing raids:

Images: dead and crippled Yemeni children, courtesy of Saudi Bombing Raids

The US enabled blockade of Yemeni ports, means that desperately needed food, and medical supplies cannot be distributed, lead to massive death by malnutrition:

Images: Yemeni children dying of malnutrition.

And now, as the Yemeni people become weaker through malnutrition, there is a cholera epidemic here that has turned absolutely vicious.

Images: Yemeni children treated for cholera

I for one want to see this carnage stopped, immediately, and negotiations among all sides leading to a cease fire, and peace talks among all parties to resolve this horrific war.

And President Trump, I would like to strongly caution you that the optics here internationally...couldn't possibly be worse, for this country, and its participation on the genocide of Yemen, courtesy of one of your BFFs in the region, The Butcher of Yemen, AKA Crown Prince bin Salman.

Moscow baffled at US accusations of hindering Afghan settlement

On November 9 Moscow hosted a conference on Afghanistan that involved delegates from Kabul and Taliban and that was attended by an observer from the United States.

Russia is baffled at the United States’ attempts to accuse it of hindering dialogue between the Afghan authorities and the radical Taliban movement (outlawed in Russia), especially on the background of the recent consultations in Moscow that involved both parties, the Russian foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

"We took notice of the statement US Under Secretary of State David Hale made at a conference organized by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy on November 8, where he said in particular that Russia is allegedly hindering peace talks with the Taliban movement," the ministry said. "Such statement cannot but be baffling on the background of Russia’s persistent efforts in cooperation with the regional partners to facilitate the launch of the process of intra-Afghan reconciliation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hale should have had his bloody head examined, before coming up with this codswallop.

I think in fact, Hale may have been jealous about how well this meeting went, and without US governmental supervision.

Female prisoners in England left to give birth without midwife, report reveals

Births in cells are thought to be rare, although nobody knows exactly how many occur or even how many prisoners are pregnant because neither the Ministry of Justice nor the NHS collects the data. But the lack of direct access, even on the phone, to a midwife for a women who thinks she is in labour makes it a risk. Prison nursing staff are not often trained to know when a woman is in labour, nor to cope with emergency deliveries if they cannot get the woman to hospital in time.

“This is an area that we have become increasingly concerned about,” said Naomi Delap, director of the charity Birth Companions, which has been supporting women in prison for over 21 years. Last year they wrote to the prison service expressing concern for the safety of women and babies, asking for urgent measures to be put in place. “We had started to hear a number of stories from different places about women giving birth in prison.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just bloody medieval, not to mention cruel and unusual punishment.

Of course, US prisons with pregnant inmates are not much better; women are made to give birth in chains, "so they won't escape."

As late as two months ago, a law was proposed in the US, insuring that no women prisoners would have to give birth in chains: New Bill Would Ensure No Woman Forced to give birth in chains

The article goes on to state:

"Fortunately, there is now a bipartisan effort in Congress to begin eliminating dangerous and degrading practices for pregnant women. The Pregnant Women in Custody Act (PWCA) places strict limits on the use of shackles and solitary confinement on pregnant women in federal prison and in the custody of the United States Marshals Service. It also sets forth basic standards for pregnancy care.

Importantly, the bill mandates that the federal government start collecting data on incarcerated women who are pregnant. Because, unbelievably, in a country that lionizes the power of big data for criminal justice, we don’t even know the number of pregnant women in our prisons and jails."

Ready to be tracked by your boss? UK companies prepare to microchip employees to boost ‘security’

Some of the the UK's largest companies are planning to implant their staff with microchips to “improve security” and restrict employees from accessing “sensitive documents,” sparking ethical concerns over such a move.
The Swedish firm, Biohax, which makes human chip implants, claims it is in talks with a number of the UK’s major businesses from the financial and legal sectors, to implant their employees with the devices, the Telegraph reports.

Russia jammed GPS during major NATO military exercise with US troops

The Russian military jammed GPS signals during a major NATO military exercise in Norway that involved thousands of US and NATO troops, the alliance said Wednesday, citing the Norwegian government.

The NATO exercise, Trident Juncture, concluded Sunday and involved some 50,000 personnel. It was labeled the alliance's largest exercise since the Cold War. Non-NATO members Finland and Sweden also participated in the exercise.
A spokesperson for the Norwegian ministry of defense acknowledged the jamming to CNN, which it said took place between October 16 and November 7, and said it would defer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on further questions to Russian authorities.

"Norway has determined that Russia was responsible for jamming GPS signals in the Kola Peninsula during Exercise Trident Juncture. Finland has expressed concern over possible jamming in Lapland," NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu told CNN Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, all we have is an allegation.

Where, please, is the irrefutable truth that this happened?!?

LAND SEIZURES IN SOUTH AFRICA WON’T VIOLATE CONSTITUTION... ONCE IT’S CHANGED – RAMAPHOSA

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa told the European Parliament on Wednesday that his country’s land reform will faithfully adhere to the country’s constitution with respect to the rights of all its citizens.
The Ramaphosa-led African National Congress (ANC) aims to change the constitution to allow the government to expropriate land from white landowners without compensation. The land is to be distributed to the country’s landless black majority. Ramaphosa says the change in law is necessary in order to address racial disparities in ownership persisting more than two decades after the end of apartheid.

“This problem of land will be resolved through adherence to the rule of law and adherence to the constitution,” Ramaphosa told the European Parliament.

The widely debated land reform was proposed by the ANC last December. The draft was aimed at changing Section 25 of the South African Constitution that regards property rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Appropriation of land without compensation is a form of theft, period, end of discussion. And since Ramaphosa supports theft, he supports land grabs.

And President Ramaphosa, I can promise you that the first resistant seller's families, filmed on an iphone, to document their getting killed defending their land, will make top news for blogs around the world.

And I must ask you; is this the image of South Africa you really want the world to see?!? Because sir, I can assure you that somewhere down the road, such an event is going to happen, in the annexing of private property without compensation.

It will cause a real chill in foreign investment in your country.

This will NOT support "nation building"; it will support the following; a flight for their lives from the current land owners; people now owning the land, but not having not a clue as to how to make their crops successful, leading to massive crop failures, meaning more and more food will have to be imported; and a ton of bank loans to get equipment for those farms left delinquent, hitting South Africa's banks for millions of dollars of losses.

One has to wonder just how soon all this may cause a major devaluation of the South African Rand; this convergence of these events may trigger "the perfect economic tsunami" for the country.

The British Army is carrying out a massive test of military robots and drones

The British Army is testing out over 70 new technologies, including unmanned vehicles and surveillance drones, in a four-week experiment on one of its biggest training grounds.

What sort of stuff? The department isn’t giving out specifics but said the focus will be on “surveillance, long-range, and precision targeting, enhanced mobility and the re-supply of forces, urban warfare and enhanced situational awareness.” The development is part of a £800 million “innovation fund” launched in 2016.

The aim? Primarily it’s about reducing the danger to troops during combat, according to the UK’s Ministry of Defense (MoD). One of the main areas it’ll test is “last mile” supply of fuel, food, and ammunition. The exercise will culminate in a simulated battle involving over 200 soldiers to test out the ideas and products.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would fully suspect that The gap between the rhetoric, and the actual reality of what these agencies want to achieve with these machines, is probably far larger than the British public is being told, at least for the moment.

When given the kind of money to make this technology work, expect that those in control of developing it, may decide to actually create a monster, incapable of being made to stop what it is doing, which will have the capability to tear humans to shreds.

Amnesty International is stripping Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi of its highest honour, the Ambassador of Conscience Award.

The rights group said it was profoundly dismayed at her failure to speak out for the Rohingya minority, some 700,000 of whom have fled a military crackdown.

This is the latest honour in a string of awards Ms Suu Kyi, 73, has lost.

Will House Democrats End U.S. Involvement In Yemen War?

Given the anger in Washington over the Jamal Khashoggi murder case, there is a real possibility that the Democrat-controlled House will be able to garner the votes to achieve what scores of lawmakers unsuccessfully sought to accomplish in March. The stakes are high regarding weapons sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Any effort to cancel, delay, or freeze arms deals could undermine the White House’s “special relationships” with Crown Princes Mohammed bin Salman and Mohammed bin Zayed, the de facto rulers in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi who are at the helm of Saudi and Emirati foreign policy. At risk are pending Saudi and UAE purchases of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile defense system, the F-35 fifth generation fighter jets, and precision guided munitions.

At Least 80 Killed as Saudi-Backed Forces Reach Hodeidah Residential Areas

Saudi-backed invasion forces are pushing deeper into the vital Yemeni aid port of Hodeidah, with heavy fighting on Saturday killing at least 80 across the city. Hodeidah’s main hospital has fallen and now the fighting has reached the residential area surrounding it.

Medics reported that among the 80 killed, 61 were Houthi fighters and the other 19 were pro-Saudi soldiers. There were also reports of civilian casualties from several airstrikes in the area, though exact numbers are unclear.

This is the latest of several major military offensives against the port. The most recent push was said to include thousands of additional fighters, including Yemeni factions and the Sudanese military.

Pentagon launched new classified operation to support Saudi coalition in Yemen

Even as the humanitarian crisis precipitated by Saudi Arabia’s more-than-three-year war in Yemen has deepened, the Pentagon earlier this year launched a new classified operation to support the kingdom’s military operations there, according to a Defense Department document that appears to have been posted online inadvertently.

The existence of the new classified operation, code-named Yukon Journey, was partially revealed in a Defense Department inspector general report posted online earlier this month, which noted that “the Secretary of Defense designated three new named contingency operations: Operation Yukon Journey, and operations in Northwest Africa and East Africa.”

The three operations, which focus on al-Qaida and ISIS, are classified, the report notes, and the Pentagon has not publicly disclosed their location beyond saying they are in the Middle East and Africa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the Pentagon will continue assassinating all Yemenis still breathing possible, until Yemen is securely occupied by the Saudi military, no matter how many innocents are murdered in the process.

In providing this "cover" for the Butcher of Yemen, (His Royal Highness, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman), the US government has telegraphed its enthusiasm for continuing to aid and abet Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

My brother and sister Americans are now citizens of a country which commits war crimes.

When I was a kid, thoughts like this never entered my head; my country was always the moral, reasonable, democratic holder of the higher ground; it is disgusting to know that this was rarely the case with this country, particularly in the 21st century.

I have to weep for what I see as the final trajectory for US foreign policy.

France, Germany Could Host Iranian Payment Vehicle to Side-Step US Sanctions

Despite the rumors that no one is willing to host the trade mechanism over fears of US sanctions, France or Germany have been named as the most viable options.

Either France or Germany might become the host nation for the European clearing house, usually referred to as a "special purpose vehicle" (SPV) — a payment mechanism that would allow European companies to bypass US-imposed sanctions on Iran.

The establishment of this mechanism is widely viewed as the moment of truth on whether the EU is genuinely ready to live up to its promise to keep the so-called Iranian nuclear deal. And, as US sanctions kicked in on November 5, Tehran is becoming more restless regarding the establishment of the SPV, the Guardian notes.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Kazem Sajjadpour has already expressed his frustration at the pace with which the SPV is being set up, saying: "What is lacking is both speed and efficiency."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what happens when all of these countries adopt a payment mechanism which completely bypass US sanctions on Iran?!?

Is President Trump prepared to go to war with all of them, for ignoring US sanctions, and buying Iranian crude?!?

GPS signals jammed: Norway, Finland warn pilots Russia may blind their navigation systems

In recent weeks, NATO conducted its largest military exercises in decades in the frigid waters and icy mountains of Norway. But something odd happened. The GPS signals guiding ships, aircraft, tanks, trucks and troops started to fail.

Civilian airliners, cars, trucks, cargo ships and smart phones operating in and around Norway and Finland experienced similar disruptions.

Why?

Russia is the chief suspect.

It was riled by the scale and location of NATO’s Trident Juncture manoeuvres — despite having itself conducted several massive military exercises in the Baltics recently.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More Russia demonization, and absolutely no hard proof that Russia is, in fact, culpable here.

Trump gives highest U.S. civilian honour, the Medal of Freedom, to top GOP donor

U.S. President Donald Trump awarded the Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honour in the U.S., to seven individuals Saturday, both living and dead — one of whom has been the biggest donor to the Republican Party.

Miriam Adelson was awarded the Medal of Freedom. She is married to Sheldon Adelson, a billionaire Las Vegas casino magnate and another GOP megadonor.

The Adelsons recently contributed $113 million to GOP causes during the 2018 election cycle. Among those donations, the couple gave $25 million in July to the Senate Leadership Fund, $2 million in September to ESA Fund, $3 million in July and September to the Republican Governors Association and roughly $40 million between May and September to the Congressional Leadership Fund, according to Politico.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This award, and the Adelsons' donations, bring some things about this administration, perfectly into focus.

The Adelson money has "bought" US foreign policy, particularly in the Middle East, where everything Israel wants, it gets granted; the Palestinians continue to get slaughtered; and Iran is in the crosshairs of the US for a shooting war and regime change.

KHASHOGGI’S LAST WORDS REVEALED AS TURKISH MEDIA PLANS TO PUBLISH AUDIO DEATH TAPE

A day after President Tayyip Erdogan dropped the latest bombshell related to the Saudi murder of Jamal Khashoggi, saying Turkey had handed over an audio recording of the journalist's brutal slaying inside the Istanbul consulate to the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Germany, France and Britain, the contents of Khashoggi's last words have emerged.

Editor for the the Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah, Nazif Karaman, shared some details from the audio tape with Al Jazeera. Karaman said Khashoggi's last words were:

“I’m suffocating… Take this bag off my head, I’m claustrophobic” – according what he confirmed is the authentic audio recording from inside the Istanbul consulate.

Meanwhile at the conclusion of the centennial anniversary of WWI ceremony in Paris President Erdogan's office confirmed he and President Trump discussed the Jamal Khashoggi killing on the sidelines of the weekend events.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this happens, I think it would be a very good thing, particularly for those Americans who still naively believe that this country's government and military "only partner with governments who act in honor of humanity, responsibility, would never commit war crimes, and would never torture and kill."

IF this happens, it is about to usher in a floodgate of information about how the US is assisting Saudi Arabia in their war crimes in Yemen.

And thinking Americans will have to ask; "why am I a citizen of a country which aids and abets Saudi war crimes in Yemen"?!?

I have to wonder just what President Trump promised Erdogan, to prevent this from possibly happening; I also hope Erdogan didn't "take the bait" about releasing this audio.

ISRAEL KILLS 7 DURING GAZA RAID, ISRAELI OFFICER KILLED

Israeli forces killed seven Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Sunday in air strikes and an undercover raid that Hamas said targeted one of its commanders and the Israeli military said left one of its officers dead, Reuters reports.

The Israeli incursion and air attacks drew rocket fire from the Hamas-controlled enclave, with sirens sounding in Israeli communities along the border. The military said its defences intercepted two of the launches. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage on the Israeli side of the frontier.

The violence prompted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to cut short a visit to Paris, where he had been gathering with world leaders for a World War One commemoration.

Hamas said the incident began when assailants in a passing car opened fire on a group of its armed men, killing one of its commanders. Hamas gunmen gave chase as the car sped back towards the border with Israel, Hamas said in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Targeted assassinations has become rather a "specialty" for the IDF and Mossad.

FACEBOOK FIRED OCULUS FOUNDER FOR HIS POLITICAL BELIEFS AND PRO-TRUMP DONATIONS

Every so often, Silicon Valley's virtue-signaling, shadowbanning, anti-conservative media titans appear in Congress or devise a quick PR campaign to show to the world just how truly impartial they are with zero liberal bias. And every single time it backfires as their true ideological face quickly emerges from behind a fake, hypocritical mask.

Take the case of former Facebook executive, Oculus co-founder and virtual-reality wunderkind Palmer Luckey, who was a rising star of Silicon Valley when, at the height of the 2016 presidential contest, he donated a modest $10,000 to an anti-Hillary Clinton group. His donation sparked a backlash from his colleagues, which then led to him being put on leave, and six months later he was fired.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I have experienced this kind of career assassination first-hand.

When one asks a logical question, or have a fact-centric piece of information, the Dementoocrats will do everything in their power to try to prevent you from ever working again.
The Assassination of Vince Foster

Right after Mike asked some very embarrassing questions about a screen capture he took from home, (an image of Vince Foster, allegedly taken right after his "suicide"), and discussed it with his colleagues at a computer animation company for which he was working). There was an open air restaurant where this happened, and there were some folks working for CNN, a tenant in the building, were "leaning in".

The next thing Mike knew, he was fired for utterly no reason; all the computer animation companies in Southern California were told never to hire him, and that his "demo reel" was only work stolen from other CGI artists.

Of course, this was all brilliantly done in a way which could never point back the "Gruesome Twosome" who made it happen. But it became the "new normal" for the Dementoocrats.

Fortunately for Mike - and us - they ultimately failed in this endeavor; but that is not to say that we didn't experience a rocky times while their campaign was initially in full bloom. Unfortunately, we didn't have the money to hire the kind of "dream team" lawyers Mr. Lucky had.

Postmortem (Civil War Phase 2)

And so, with the midterm election in the rearview mirror, behold the rush into the next phase of Civil War 2. The Golden Golem of Greatness (aka, President Trump) finally requested the resignation of the feckless Attorney General, Mr. Sessions — a fine point as we shall see. The New York Times, of course, played it as an opportunity to litigate the constitution in their headline the day after: "Jeff Sessions Is Forced Out as Attorney General as Trump Installs Loyalist".

In Federal Courts, the Worst Rise to the Top

A New York City federal jury has spoken, and its message is ominous: federal prosecutors are empowered to criminalize actions for which there is no statutory prohibition. To put it another way, the government has pulled criminal charges out of thin air – and journalists are cheering.

Socialists and Fascists Have Always Been Kissing Cousins

The young communists are more than convinced of their intellectual as well as their moral superiority. With dread certainty, they bully anyone who believes differently than they do. In other words, the Left is back and in full force, up to the same deceptions and tricks as it was in the 1920s and after.

FML : Hillary Will Run Again

Get ready for Hillary Clinton 4.0. More than 30 years in the making, this new version of Mrs. Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle—back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994. True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

Florida Elections Worker: I Was Fired For Witnessing Possible Absentee Ballot Fraud

A temporary worker for the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office in Florida has alleged in a sworn affidavit obtained by Newsmax that she was fired this week after witnessing possible absentee ballot fraud by office workers.

But the State Attorney's Office concluded Friday that the workers were duplicating ballots by hand from damaged originals faxed by military personnel and that "there is nothing improper or illegal about the conduct" under state law.

"We were understandably alarmed about what she witnessed," Bob Nichols, a Fort Lauderdale attorney, told Newsmax in an interview.

Nichols is general counsel for the Broward Republican Executive Committee, which learned of the allegations on Thursday. He interviewed the former employee and reported the matter that day to the state attorney.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What can you expect from Broward Country Florida, from which we have seen such tremendous amounts of election fraud happen in years past?!?

Obviously, nothing has changed here, and I seriously doubt that we will see change, until the entire nation is voting on an absolute standard manner, all across the country.

Trump Warns: Dems Are Sending "Their Best Election-Stealing Lawyer" To Florida

Is Florida gearing up for Bush vs. Gore redux?

It's starting to look that way.

As Fox News reports, lawyers are arriving in Democratic strongholds in Florida as the state prepares for a recount in Broward County, the epicenter of the vote-counting controversy that led to Bush vs. Gore, and Palm Beach County. Both are Democratic strongholds that have been extremely slow to deliver final ballot totals for Tuesday's election.

To try and push for a hand recount, defeated incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson has hired Democratic attorney Marc Elias of law firm Perkins Coie to help plead his case and point out suspicious "inconsistencies" with the vote count in Broward, where more than 20,000 voters voted in down-ballot races but left out their votes for governor's race, in which Nelson's Democratic ally, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, has already conceded to Republican Ron DeSantis.

Broward Mystery Boxes Tossed Into Trucks After Missed Deadline; Gaetz Forcibly Removed While Filming

After a Florida Judge ordered Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to allow for the immediate inspection of tens of thousands of ballots suddenly found after Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson lost to Republican Gov. Rick Scott, Snipes failed to abide by a 7 PM deadline set at the emergency hearing. Instead, workers were filmed by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) shuffling boxes into a truck, before he was forcibly removed by a police officer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Police officer had no right to do this, but understanding that he probably had guns/tasers, etc., I can understand why Gaetz ultimately went with him, albeit not willingly.

Burying The Other Russia Story: WSJ Editors Expose The House Democrats' Real Plan

Arguably the most important power at stake in Tuesday’s election was Congressional oversight, and the most important change may be Adam Schiff at the House Intelligence Committee. The Democrat says his top priority is re-opening the Trump-Russia collusion probe, but more important may be his intention to stop investigating how the FBI and Justice Department abused their power in 2016. So let’s walk through what we’ve learned to date.

Credit for knowing anything at all goes to Intel Chairman Devin Nunes and more recently a joint investigation by Reps. Bob Goodlatte (Judiciary) and Trey Gowdy (Oversight). Over 18 months of reviewing tens of thousands of documents and interviewing every relevant witness, no Senate or House Committee has unearthed evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the presidential election. If Special Counsel Robert Mueller has found more, he hasn’t made it public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How low can the Democrats go, in pursuing a vendetta-dipped agenda, still stuck in their anger from losing the 2016 election ?!?

All the way to pure, hellish, unmitigated evil, it appears.

The 'War Party' Wins The Midterm Elections, Accelerating Transition To A Multipolar World Order Authored by Federico Pieraccini via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

The outcome of the American midterm elections gives us an even more divided country, confirming that the United States is in the midst of a deep crisis within its establishment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the clearest, cut to the bone, analysis of US midterms I have read, to date.

THE STATE WEAPONIZES EDUCATION TO CREATE IGNORANCE

A hundred fifty years ago, at least some Americans recognized that all serious discourse depended on the use of the faculty called Reason.

Formal debate, science, and law all flowed from that source.

A common bond existed in some schools of the day. The student was expected to learn how Reason operates, and for that he was taught the only subject which could lay out, as on a long table, the visible principles: Logic.

This was accepted.

But now, this bond is gone.

The independence engendered by the disciplined study of logic is no longer a desired quality in students.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can even see it in the architecture of a lot of recently refurbished or newly built schools; they look as though they could be prisons for low-level criminals, instead of beautiful places which encourage thought or reflection.

Why Are so Few Americans Able to Get Ahead?

Despite the rah-rah about the "ownership society" and the best economy ever, the sobering reality is very few Americans are able to get ahead, i.e. build real financial security via meaningful, secure assets which can be passed on to their children.

The Five Features of the Left’s Fact-Free Universe

Answer: because this is the way millions of leftists think. -- They live in a universe in which the GOP is about to abolish the welfare state, the Ku Klux Klan (which has somewhere between 3000 and 6000 members nationwide) is an influential institution, the United States has a “rape culture,” white nationalists can be found in many prominent positions, and “literal Nazis” are in the White House. -- When asked for evidence to support bizarre, tone-deaf, I’m-living-on-another-planet claims like these, the so-called evidence always winds up like that article — either showing nothing of the kind, or indeed proving the exact opposite. -- The fact-free universe they live in, which stokes their emotional hypochondria, motivates the mobs threatening people like Carlson.
