Fatah: Arab States Pressing Palestinians to Accept Trump Deal

Some Arab states are exerting “immense pressure” on the Palestinians to accept President Donald Trump’s controversial Middle East plan, dubbed “the deal of the century”, a senior Fatah official said.

“Some Arab countries, especially Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, are very interested in the deal of the century,” the unnamed official told Al-Khaleej Online news.

“They are using all means, including political and financial blackmail, to force the Palestinians to accept the deal of the century despite all the dangers it poses to the Palestinian cause,” the official added.

Trump’s so-called “peace plan” is expected to be unveiled at the end of the holy month of Ramadan in June.

Local Militants Had International Help in Carrying out Attacks in Sri Lanka

An international network helped to perpetrate the bloody Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, the nation’s health minister announced after the series of coordinated bombings killed 290 people and left hundreds injured.
“We do not believe these attacks were carried out by a group of people who were confined to this country,” Minister of Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Rajitha Senaratne said on Monday, RT reported.

He stated that there was “an international network”, without which the attacks “could not have succeeded”.

Suicide bombers set off explosives in several hotels and Catholic churches in different parts of Sri Lanka. An apartment complex was also targeted, and a bomb found near Colombo International Airport was defused.

From 'total exoneration' to 'total bullsh**': Trump lingers on damning report

By the time President Donald Trump had passed through the prime rib buffet at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday to sit for dinner with family and a top aide, the damning picture Robert Mueller's report painted of his presidency had become clear.

Instead of the "total exoneration" Trump had proclaimed earlier, the report portrayed the President as deceitful and paranoid, encouraging his aides to withhold the truth and cross ethical lines in an attempt to thwart a probe into Russia's interference in US elections -- his "Achilles heel," according to one forthcoming adviser.

Perhaps more angering to a leader who detests weakness -- but doesn't necessarily mind an amoral reputation -- were the number of underlings shown ignoring his commands, privately scoffing at the "crazy sh**" he was requesting and working around him to avoid self-implication.

''India has stopped the policy of getting scared of Pakistan's threats. Every other day they used to say 'we have a nuclear button, we have a nuclear button'.....What do we have then? Have we kept it for Diwali?'' the PM asked while addressing a huge gathering of supporters in Rajasthan's Barmer.

Pompeo Not ‘Mature,’ Bolton ‘Dim-Sighted,’ North Korea Lambasts Top Trump Officials

In its second scathing critique of a high-ranking US figure in less than a week, Pyongyang has described demands by the US national security adviser, John Bolton, for proof that North Korea is in the process of denuclearisation as “nonsense".

Bolton's call for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to offer proof that Pyongyang's leadership is in the process of taking apart its nuclear arsenal were characterised as "nonsense" by the nation's vice foreign minister, Choe Son-hui, on Saturday, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
After US President Donald Trump hinted that he was interested in a third summit with DPRK chairman Kim Jong-un, Bolton — a Trump appointee — declared that prior to any meeting between the two heads of state there must first be "a real indication from North Korea that they've made the strategic decision to give up nuclear weapons">>>

290 CIA Spies Arrested in Different Countries by Iran

Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyed Mahmoud Alavi announced on Friday that Tehran has delivered unprecedented blows to the US espionage service, identifying and arresting 290 CIA agents across different countries.

"CIA operatives in these countries were identified and arrested and the contacts of the US intelligence agency with its sources were disrupted in such a way that a committee to assess the failure was set up in America," Alavi said today during Friday prayers in Tehran.

He touched on what numerous US spy experts have said about the major intelligence defeat, including one who called it "one of the most catastrophic intelligence failures since the September 11" attacks in 2001.

Alavi said his ministry has shifted from focusing on defensive counter-intelligence to conducting offensive operations.>>>

Syria Rejects Media Reports on Clashes between Russian, Iranian Military Men

A senior Syrian military source rejected media reports on clashes between the Russian forces and Iranian military advisors in Deir Ezzur and Aleppo as "baseless and untrue".

“General Command of the army and armed forces categorically refutes those reports circulated on the websites and newspapers and it asserts that the news are baseless and untrue,” the source was quoted as saying by SANA news agency on Saturday.

The army command called upon different mass media to seek accuracy and be responsible for broadcasting news and avoid battlefield reports unless those issued by a military source, the source added.

Iranian and Russian militaries have been assisting Syria in fighting against the terrorist groups upon official demand of the Syrian government since the first days of war.

Iran has played a military advisory role in the war-torn Arab states.

Some Israeli websites had earlier claimed clashes between Iranian and Russian forces in Western Homs.

Trump lashes out at Romney

President Donald Trump on Saturday ridiculed Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for his loss to former President Barack Obama in the 2012 election — one day after Romney said he was “sickened” by Trump’s actions as detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“If @MittRomney spent the same energy fighting Barack Obama as he does fighting Donald Trump, he could have won the race (maybe)!” Trump tweeted.

On Trump’s Shameful Decision for Yemen

The database tracker from the Armed Conflict and Location Event Data Project has issued a new data on Yemen, showing more than 70,000 have been killed in the US-backed, Saudi-led war just since January 2016.

This is a huge amount of deaths, and if there is some decrease in fighting in Hodeida because of UN talks, it’s not like the war is slowing much. At least 10,000 people were killed just in the past five months.
It begs the question: When will the warmongers stop bombing Yemen? US President Donald Trump answered that earlier this week when he vetoed a bill passed by Congress to end war in Yemen. This is not what the United Nations and the long-suffering people of the poorest country in the Arab world would like to see.

Trump offers condolences to Sri Lanka over ‘horrible terrorist attacks’

US president erroneously says 138 million people were killed in bombings, then deletes tweet

US President Donald Trump on Sunday offers “heartfelt condolences” to the people of Sri Lanka after a series of deadly explosions at churches and hotels in the island nation killed more than 160 people.

“Heartfelt condolences from the people of the United States to the people of Sri Lanka on the horrible terrorist attacks on churches and hotels,” he tweets. “We stand ready to help!”

The US leader erroneously writes that “138 million people” were killed in the attacks. He later appears to have deleted the tweet.

Trey Gowdy: Mueller report release 'resolved nothing;' 2020 will deliver 'verdict'

Former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy believes the release of the Mueller report has not resolved the partisan debate over the Trump campaign’s dealings with Russia in 2016, and that the real “verdict” on the situation will be rendered by the 2020 presidential election.

“I was within in a really smart universe of people that did not think this report should be made public. I didn't think it was going to change anyone's mind and resolve anything and for once in my life, I was right. It's resolved nothing,” Gowdy said Friday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

Green Market Agorism

By Logan Marie Glitterbomb

Agorist theory has been enriched a lot since Samuel Edward Konkin III introduced the initial theory. Through the writings and work of visionaries such as Karl Hess, Ross Ulbricht, Satoshi Nakamoto, Defense Distributed, and Derrick Broze, we have seen agorism grow and expand in ways never thought possible both intellectually and in practice. And the practice will continue to grow and adapt as time goes on, circumstances change, new technologies emerge, etc., as it should...

As agorists, we talk often talk of the white, black, grey, and red markets but there is one market that is surprisingly absent yet increasingly relevant to the conversation: green markets. Now by green market, I don’t mean cannabis, alternative energies, or deceptive greenwashed consumerism. Rather green markets include...

Trump Generates More International Anger

Anger in Tripoli over Trump's 'reversal on Haftar'

In apparent reversal of US policy, Trump praises Haftar for fighting 'terrorism' and securing Libya's oil resources.

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Libya's capital, Tripoli, on Friday after US President Donald Trump praised Libya's Khalifa Haftar amid a military assault by the renegade general to seize the capital.

A White House statement said Trump and Haftar spoke by phone on Monday "to discuss ongoing counterterrorism efforts to achieve peace and stability in Libya".

On April 4, Haftar and his forces launched an offensive against the country's internationally recognised government, which is based in Tripoli.

In their phone call, Trump "recognised Field Marshal Haftar's significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya's oil resources, and the two discussed a shared vision for Libya's transition to a stable, democratic political system."

Mueller and the 9/11 Cover Up

FLASHBACK 1/27/2018: Court Documents Show Mueller Involved in 9/11 Cover-up

Recently uncovered court documents related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s time as FBI Director show his lack of anything resembling credibility. The man who is responsible for investigating allegations of Trump/Russia collusion was involved in releasing deceptive statements that helped cover up a Saudi family’s involvement in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that shocked America and helped launch the modern surveillance state.

Mueller led the FBI from September 4, 2001 to September 4, 2013. One week after Mueller assumed his new job, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airliners, using three of them to destroy the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and severely damage the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Nearly 3,000 people lost their lives that day and more than another 6,000 were injured, many of them later dying from their injuries.

Omar Barghouti: ‘Israel is outsourcing anti-BDS repression to the US’

On 10 April, Palestinian human rights activist and co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement Omar Barghouti was denied entry into the United States, despite having valid travel documents.

The move was quickly denounced by rights groups as a violation of free speech by the administration of President Donald Trump.

Barghouti was stopped at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and told he would not be allowed to board his flight to the US. He was expected to join a panel in Washington the following day. The campaigner was born in Qatar and has permanent resident status in Israel.

Barghouti joined the panel via a video conference call that was live-streamed on social media. He called for taking Palestinian non-violent resistance to the "global scene" amid failure by the international community to uphold Palestinian rights.

Trump Campaign: Time To Go After 'Liars' Who Started Witch Hunt

With the initial hyper-triggered shock of the moderately-redacted Mueller Report having washed across the cognitively dissonant liberal media and their zombified social media followers...

Long and short: there was collusion, there was obstruction, Donald Trump needs to be removed from office. Immediately... Trump and his cronies made a decision to put power and wealth above the country. They actively sought help in undermining our democratic process. They didn't report constant Russian contacts or offers to help. They're traitors. That's it. They're traitors.")

Robert Mueller Did Not Merely Reject the Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theories. He Obliterated Them.

THE TWO-PRONGED CONSPIRACY THEORY that has dominated U.S. political discourse for almost three years – that (1) Trump, his family and his campaign conspired or coordinated with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, and (2) Trump is beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin — was not merely rejected today by the final report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. It was obliterated: in an undeniable and definitive manner.

The key fact is this: Mueller – contrary to weeks of false media claims – did not merely issue a narrow, cramped, legalistic finding that there was insufficient evidence to indict Trump associates for conspiring with Russia and then proving their guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. That would have been devastating enough to those who spent the last two years or more misleading people to believe that conspiracy convictions of Trump’s closest aides and family members were inevitable. But his mandate was much broader than that: to state what did or did not happen.

Spain: Election Authority Bans Anti-Mass Migration Populists from TV Debates

The populist leader vowing to “make Spain great again” has been axed from the only televised debate confirmed ahead of the election later this month.
The Atresmedia network was ordered to drop Vox leader Santiago Abascal from its debate after Spain’s Central Election Board ruled his appearance would not be “proportional” to votes cast for the party at elections in 2015, when the then only recently formed party failed to win representation in the national parliament.

Since then however, Vox has enjoyed a huge political breakthrough, becoming the third largest party at elections in Andalucia in December when it gained 11 per cent of the vote and 12 seats — far outperforming predictions it would win just five seats.

Now the party faces being excluded from an election debate for a vote where some polls predict they could finish in third place nationally, potentially becoming an important faction in the Spanish parliament and even a player in a future coalition government.
