Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) told Breitbart News exclusively that China’s intense international push for global dominance is the biggest threat that America has ever faced, even more substantial than the one that the Soviet Union posed in the 20th century during the Cold War.

West Virginia Teachers Strike over Charter School Bill Governor Vows to Veto

West Virginia teachers will continue to strike into Wednesday, although Republican Gov. Jim Justice has vowed since January he will not sign into law an education bill allowing charter schools and education savings accounts in the state.

The New York Times, however, reported the teachers’ strike led to an immediate “victory” when the West Virginia House of Delegates voted Tuesday to table the bill. Similarly, the Associated Press reported union leaders were celebrating the decision of the West Virginia House of Delegates to kill the education bill that led to the strike:

THE EU’s trade agreements with Japan, Algeria and Turkey will not automatically still apply to the UK in the event of a no-deal Brexit, the Government has confirmed.

"Empire" actor Jussie Smollett surrendered to authorities Thursday morning after he was charged with one count of felony disorderly conduct for filing a false police report.

At a press conference Thursday, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said Smollett first faked a letter using racist and homophobic language and when that didn't get attention, Johnson said Smollett paid $3,500 to two brothers in order to stage the attack. Supt. Johnson said it was because he was "dissatisfied with his salary."

Great Civilizations Aren’t Murdered, They Commit Suicide: The U.S.’s Likely Collapse

Historian Arnold Toynbee in his 12-volume magnum opus A Study of History was an exploration of the rise and fall of 28 different civilizations. Toynbee concluded that great civilizations don’t “get murdered,” rather, they kill themselves, and all the signs of a civilization collapse are here.

The Roman Empire, for example, was the victim of many ills including overexpansion, climatic change, environmental degradation, and poor leadership. But it was also brought to its knees when Rome was sacked by the Visigoths in 410 and the Vandals in 455.

Collapse is often quick and greatness provides no immunity. The Roman Empire covered 4.4 million sq km (1.9 million sq miles) in 390. Five years later, it had plummeted to 2 million sq km (770,000 sq miles). By 476, the empire’s reach was zero. –BBC

Hell Hole on Earth Discovered at Fukushima

Most people think they have to die to go to hell but that is not true anymore. Today, in the mainstream press, they announced the existence of a hell hole in Japan at the destroyed nuclear power station at Fukushima. We have a hot spot on our planet that has never been imagined before and in the face of it human technology is helpless.

At the levels of radiation now being found a Fukushima, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed. And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.

Chicago police chief EVISCERATES Jussie Smollett for betraying the black and LGBTQ communities as he details how the actor sent HIMSELF hate mail and then staged his 'homophobic and racist attack' because he was not happy with his SALARY on Empire

Jussie Smollett was eviscerated by furious Chicago police bosses on Thursday who alleged that he mailed himself a threatening letter than staged a hoax attack on himself because he was unhappy with his Empire salary.

At an extraordinary press conference, Chicago Police Department Chief Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson abhorred him as a 'troubled young man' who has 'taken advantage of the pain and anger of racism to further his career' by allegedly lying that he was attacked by racist and homophobic assailants on January 29.

Smollett is paid $20,000 per episode on Empire but, according to the police, wanted more so 'concocted' the fake letter and attack in the hope that it would raise his profile and earn him more.

His motive 'p****d everybody off', Superintendent Johnson said, adding that Smollett's repeated 'lies' were 'shameful' and 'despicable'.

Israel court bans Al-Aqsa protest detainees from accessing compound

An Israeli court yesterday released 14 Palestinian detainees “on condition of staying away from the Old City of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque for 60 days”, reported Wafa news agency.

Those living in the Old City itself were banned from Al-Aqsa Mosque compound. The individuals were also ordered to pay around $400 in bail, according to Mohammad Mahmoud, an attorney with the Prisoners Commission. Two further Palestinians “were remanded in custody until Friday”.

As Wafa reported, “confrontations broke out inside Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Tuesday between Israeli police and Palestinians”, leading to several injuries and around 16 arrests.

Israel hiding 300,000 documents about massacres carried out against Palestinians

Israeli Jewish journalist Asaf Shalev, who lives in California, has said that Israel had been hiding 300,000 documents about crimes carried out against the Palestinians, thousands of them date back to 1800s, +972 Magazine reported early this week.

Shalev was reported saying to the magazine that Israel’s State Archives declassified secret documents last summer including documents which are more than a century old; however, he said, 300,000 documents which predate the creation of Israel remained classified.

The very existence of the 300,000 classified files—their names, dates, and origin within the state bureaucracy—had been kept a secret, until now, he was reported saying by +972 Magazine, noting that one-fifth of the files, deemed too sensitive still by the government, were excluded from the disclosure.

The announcement by seven MPs from the UK Labour Party on Monday that they were breaking away and creating a new parliamentary faction marked the biggest internal upheaval in a British political party in nearly 40 years, when the SDP split from Labour.

On Wednesday, they were joined by an eighth Labour MP, Joan Ryan, and three Conservative MPs. There are predictions more will follow.

With the UK teetering on the brink of crashing out of the European Union with no deal on Brexit, the founders of the so-called Independent Group made reference to their opposition to Brexit.

70 years after the Nakba: What if Wales had been offered to the Jews as a homeland?

On 2 November 1917, British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour sent a letter to Lord Walter Rothschild, a prominent Zionist, which became known as the Balfour Declaration.

In it, the British government promised Palestine to the Zionists - and did so without consulting Palestinians, British Jews, or the wider British population. While Palestinian Arabs at the time made up 90 per cent of the territory's 700,000 population, they were bizarrely only referred to as "existing non-Jewish communities". The letter also said "that nothing should be done to prejudice" their "civil and religious rights".

Netanyahu Merges Extremist Parties, Seeking Support in Election

With the various far-right portions of the previous coalition government now split, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is looking for newer, farther right parties to court. He has made a deal on the merger of two extremist parties to try to get them above the electoral threshhold, and a deal to see those MPs join a Netanyahu-led coalition.

The merger combines what is left of the Jewish Home party, which is tiny since Naftali Bennett and other leaders left to form the New Right, and the Jewish Power party, a collection of racists loyal to the banned movement of Rabbi Meir Kahane.

This has sparked some criticism from Netanyahu’s rivals, with him trying to cobble together potential allies from racists and homophobes, in an effort to keep his far-right coalition standing, no matter how much farther right it has to go.

In the rambling video that starts out with Barr seemingly chewing, she begins by referring to the Bronx-born congresswoman as, “That Green New Deal...Farrakhan-loving bitch. I don’t remember her name. The bug-eyed bitch who looks like realtor.”

Barr, 66, mutters, “She got them realtor eyes,” and opens her own eyes wide.

See For Yourself, 30 of the New, Modern, Amazing Airports of 'Stagnating Russia' (Great Pictures)

What prompted me to write this Awara Accounting report on the impressive development of Russia’s airports was to produce a cure for the but-beyond-the-MKAD syndrome. The MKAD is the 110 kilometer outer ring road around Moscow. And this syndrome refers to the habit of the detractors of Putin’s Russia to claim that any visible development of Russia, if any, has happened only within the limits of Moscow city – “just go outside the Ring Road and you’ll see there’s nothing but poverty and ruin.” Many of those who suffer from this syndrome live in a deep-seated cognitive dissonance where they just refuse to trust their lying eyes, while some of them are just peddlers of pure propaganda or victims of the latter.

So, let’s see what actually happens beyond the MKAD. Amazing airports have been built or reconstructed both in Moscow and across the vast country and many other impressive projects have been presented.

How Many Intersectional Diversity Pokemon Points Is Gay, Black & Jewish Jussie Smollett Entitled to?

The theory of Intersectionality — roughly, that the more categories of Victim you can check, the more Victim Privilege you enjoy — has been immensely influential since about 2013.

It’s popular with, say, black female homosexuals who want an intellectual-sounding justification for why they are Marginaler Than Thou to use on, say, straight black men or lesbian white women. Black women homosexuals clearly win in a matchup with white lesbians or black men through simple dominance logic. Black female lesbians check all the boxes that their traditional allies can check plus at least one more, proving their precedence.

That, by the way, is one reason why transgenders have swept to so many triumphs in recent years. Bruce Jenner, a rich Republican retired jock and devout golfer who has fathered six kids, enjoyed about as many intersectional Pokemon Points as Peyton Manning. But Caitlyn Jenner checks off all sorts of boxes: woman, transgender, even lesbian.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office leaked and then deleted a video of a closed-door meeting at the conference showing officials from Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates spewing invective against Iran and defending Israel.

Bahrain’s foreign minister Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa downplayed Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

“We grew up talking about the Palestine-Israel dispute as the most important issue,” he said in the video. “But then at a later stage, we saw a bigger challenge. We saw a more toxic one, in fact the most toxic in our modern history, which came from the Islamic Republic, from Iran.”

Meghan McCain calls Tulsi Gabbard an 'Assad apologist' in heated exchange on Syria

Since Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard declared she's running for president in 2020, she's been hammered in interviews over her controversial interactions with and statements on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Gabbard's Wednesday appearance on ABC's "The View" was no exception to the trend as the Hawaii Democrat got into a heated debate with host Meghan McCain.

As Gabbard discussed her foreign policy stance, McCain interrupted to address the lawmaker's stance on Assad.

"When I hear the name Tulsi Gabbard, I think of Assad apologist. I think of someone who comes back to the United States and is spouting propaganda from Syria," McCain said.

Donald Trump's decision to withdraw 1,000 or more US troops from Afghanistan has prompted concerns among American lawmakers and Washington's European allies. On 16 February the bipartisan group of US congressmen met with Afghan President Ashaf Ghani on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference to discuss the painful dilemma.

The US' Afghanistan war, which will mark its 18th anniversary this October, started in 2001 following the 9/11 terror attack under then-US President George W. Bush.

The perpetrators are believed to have relieved pensioners of hundreds of thousands of euros by posing as officials.

"One of our tasks is to boost international cooperation with Turkey," the BKA told DW, "...the effectiveness of this cooperation was clearly seen in December, when Turkish police carried out a number of raids based on the preliminary investigation. In Antalya Province, for example, several residences and buildings were searched in connection with the fraud commited against victims living in Germany."

Scholar: London Risks Shooting Itself in the Foot By Blindly Following US Govt

British Defense Secretary argued that the UK should prepare to intervene against countries that "flout international law" such as Russia and China, backed up by new military technologies and capabilities.

This is not the first time the country has tried to intervene in these waters. London recently conducted its first joint drills with Washington in the South China Sea region.

Last October, British Royal Navy forces vowed they would assert their rights to navigate in the South China Sea despite China's provocation claims, the Financial Times reported.

As the former world power on which "the sun never sets," the UK has had to relinquish the seat of global hegemony to the US since the 20th century, albeit unwillingly.

Anti-Zionism equals Anti-Semitism? Macron fuels debate on how to define anti-Jewish hate

Addressing a rise in hate crimes against the Jewish diaspora in France, President Emmanuel Macron has supported the expansion of the definition of anti-Semitism to outlaw anti-Zionism as well, fueling public debate over the terms.

“Anti-Semitism is hiding itself behind anti-Zionism,” Macron said Wednesday, speaking at the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (Crif) and announcing that France seeks to define “anti-Zionism as a modern-day form of anti-Semitism.”

The rise of hate crime incidents in France, including the verbal abuse of philosopher Alain Finkielkraut at a Yellow Vest rally last weekend and the desecration of a Jewish cemetery near Strasbourg, has prompted the French government to seek new means to fight growing animosity towards their Jewish population, the largest in Europe.

Q The God-Emperor

This kind of open-ended information bombing lets Qvians free-associate on the data and eventually come to a consensus, usually with the "Anons," known here as the Apostles and Acolytes, leading the way.

In other words, this is classic Dialectic Conformity in action. A group of people are presented a vague issue, planted leaders emerge from within the group, predetermined solutions are proposed, and ultimately the group settles on a conclusion they've surreptitiously been led to. All the while, the group fervently believes it has been acting independently and exercising free choice.

As I have shown before, Q also uses a psychological technique called "transference". Q uses emotional triggers to transfer religious, militaristic, political, and cultural fervor to itself, and thus to Trump's presidency and support.

First Venezuela, now Nicaragua? Bolton says Ortega’s days ‘numbered’ & people ‘will soon be free’

US President Donald Trump’s top foreign policy advisor John Bolton appears dead set on resuming his decades-long stand-off with Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega, hinting that Washington-backed regime change may be in the offing.

“The Ortega regime has sentenced three farm leaders to 550 years in prison for their roles in protests in 2018, where Ortega’s police forces reportedly killed 300 activists. As President Trump said Monday, Ortega’s days are numbered and the Nicaraguan people will soon be free,” the national security advisor to the US president tweeted on Wednesday.

How the NSA identified Satoshi Nakamoto

The ‘creator’ of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, is the world’s most elusive billionaire (worth more than $7B as of November 2017). Very few people outside of the Department of Homeland Security know Satoshi’s real name. In fact, DHS will not publicly confirm that even THEY know the billionaire’s identity. Satoshi has taken great care to keep his identity secret employing the latest encryption and obfuscation methods in his communications. Despite these efforts (according to my source at the DHS) Satoshi Nakamoto gave investigators the only tool they needed to find him?—?his own words.

North Korea's Kim replaces key diplomats ahead of Trump summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has shuffled some of his top advisers and diplomats ahead of next week's meeting with President Trump in Vietnam, Reuters reported Wednesday.

The news outlet reported that Kim has swapped out a number of veteran negotiators, including some who served his father and grandfather, with younger counsel.

One of the most notable changes is Kim's appointment of Kim Hyok Chol to lead working-level talks with U.S. nuclear envoy Stephen Biegun, Reuters reported. Kim Hyok Chol was expelled as ambassador to Spain in 2017 and has since worked at North Korea's State Affairs Commission, according to the report.

Kim Hyok Chol replaces Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, who led talks ahead of Trump and Kim's first meeting last June.

Trump is set to travel to Hanoi, Vietnam, for a summit with Kim on Feb. 27 and 28.
