“The Veto” New Documentary Sheds Light On Western Propaganda Campaign Against Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

Ever since the beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011, the Western mainstream media, along with its counterparts in the Gulf countries, have engaged in the most heinous acts of war propaganda seen in the modern world. Not content with the opportunity to twist facts and distort the realities on the ground, these mainstream corporate news engines have outright colluded in faking reports and concocting entire productions of propaganda for the purpose of convincing their audiences of the need to invade Syria or, at the very least, to support the terrorists “rebels,” armed, funded, and trained by the U.S., NATO, Israel, and the Gulf states.

BODY COUNT RISES: Marine Who Exposed Hillary Clinton FOUND DEAD

It was with an extremely heavy heart that we recently learned our friend and former colleague James Dolan—one of the co-creators of SecureDrop and Freedom of the Press Foundation’s first full-time employee—took his own life over the holidays. He was 36.

In 2012, James worked with Aaron Swartz and journalist Kevin Poulsen to build the original prototype of SecureDrop, the open-source whistleblower submission system, which was then called DeadDrop. Poulsen described James’s role in the project’s creation in the New Yorker in 2013:

FLASHBACK: Jews to investigate and defend Trump-Putin ties

US Justice Department has appointed Robert Mueller, former FBI director under war criminal George Bush administration as the special counsel leading the probe into Russian meddling in last year’s presidential election.

Robert Mueller who played a major part in whitewashing Israel’s part in 9/11 terrorist attacks (watch below) while arresting 40 American Muslims on suspicion of having links with the alleged 19 Saudi terrorist carrying knife cutters who hijacked four US commercial flights.

On Jews Being United

In his Times of Israel article “What All Anti-Semites Have In Common,” Andres Spokoiny, president and CEO of the Jewish Funders Network, tells us everything we shouldn’t know about the current state of the Jew/Goy divide.

“Today,” Spokoiny complains, “many Jews are willing to overlook and even excuse anti-Semitism when the bigots hate a certain type of Jews.” In the good old days, anti-Semitism was a uniting force. “Anti-Semitism used to be the big Jewish unifier. Jews were always fractious and quarrelsome, but when it came to anti-Semitism, everybody agreed. Anti-Semites hated us without distinction, so in the face of a common threat, we would recognize the danger and unite.” Spokoiny is nostalgic, he wants to see the Jews reunited into a fist of resistance against anti-Semitism.

Mueller Report says ‘multiple members’ of Trump transition approached foreign officials to stop UN resolution against Israeli settlements

The Mueller Report was released today, and one section reveals that “multiple members” of the Trump transition team, led by Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law, “communicated with foreign government officials” in an effort to undermine the Obama White House’s decision to allow the passage of a UN Security Council resolution in December 2016 that was sharply critical of Israeli settlements.

We knew that Trump’s transition tried to block the resolution by reaching out to Russia; former national security adviser Mike Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the matter.

The news here is that “multiple members” of the transition team reached out to other foreign countries. The report suggests that in order “to support Israel,” Jared Kushner issued an all points bulletin throughout the transition team. (The report confirms what the Wall Street Journal characterized as a “blitz” in its own investigation of the incident last year.)

How can Israelis celebrate Passover while denying Palestinian Christians the right to travel?

One of the greatest religious stories shared by Jews, Christians and Muslims is the Exodus of Moses and the children of Israel from bondage in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. This weekend the story will be recounted and reflected upon in Jewish households around the world as families come together for the traditional Passover meal.

This annual religious festival frequently coincides with the Christian festival of Easter, when the world’s Christians congregate in their churches to remember what they believe to have been the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. A joyous occasion, it will be celebrated by Christians everywhere.

Measles Crisis: Judge Dismisses Parents’ Suit Against NYC

A New York judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit brought against the city’s Department of Health by five parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.

The dismissal shores up an emergency order declaring the city’s measles outbreak a public health emergency. In addition to mandating the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine for children in zip codes affected by the crisis, it threatened parents with fines of up to $1,000.

There have been 329 confirmed cases of the viral illness, mostly among observant Jews in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

“The unvarnished truth is that these diagnoses represent the most significant spike in incidences of measles in the United States in many years and that the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn is at its epicenter,” Kings County Supreme Court justice Lawrence Knipel wrote.

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.

I am on trial in Germany for peacefully protesting Israeli apartheid

I am in the midst of a nightmare because I dared to call for equality, justice, freedom and dignity for Palestinians. My activism in Germany as part of the international boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement has landed me before the court.

Last month, charges were levied against me and my two Jewish comrades, Ronnie Barkan and Stavit Sinai. Together, we are known as the #humboldt3, because we peacefully protested a talk at Humboldt University in Berlin by Knesset member Aliza Lavie, who supported Israel’s 2014 war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

I have been deeply touched by the international support we have received throughout this ordeal. However, we still need all human rights defenders and friends of Palestine to stand with us, since we are going through a re-trial following Israeli pressure to convict us.

Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid?

Suppressing free and open discussion on any subject is as bad as telling lies, and knowingly suppressing the truth is the biggest lie of all, because it is based, not on a mistake or a genuine error, but on a deliberate intention to deceive. Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible. Yet Höss’s conviction has stood, by inference, as a testament to the cruelty of Germans in general, since he was tried at Nuremberg, in 1947, and subsequently hanged on April 16th, 1947, in Poland.

Thoughts on the Protected Race

By almost every metric, Jews are the most protected ethnic group on earth. At the frontline of this protection, Jewish institutional security is heavily subsidised by taxpayers throughout the West. In Germany, the government provides an annual stipend of $15 million to the Central Council of Jews. In the UK, the government spends around $20 million annually on both security for Jewish institutions and “Holocaust education” designed to combat “anti-Semitic ideas.” This is in addition to the UK pledging almost $70 million for a new Holocaust memorial designed to achieve the same ends. Hungary has promised $3.4 million to “fight anti-Semitism in Europe,” and Sweden has handed over 2 million kronor for increasing security at Jewish institutions. France has invested $107 million in “fighting anti-Semitism” since 2015.

REMEMBERING WACO

On this day in 1993, just a few months Into the Clinton administration, the compound of a religious community caught fire during an extended siege killing seventy six people including over two dozen children.

The first thing Bill Clinton did after he won the 1992 election – even before he took office – was to order the Little Rock ATF to make a case against the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.

It’s refreshing to see Siskel & Ebert, popular movie reviewers, take a clear stand on behalf of the victims of government criminality.

It’s a remarkable film and deserves a wide viewing – even 20- years later.

CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST SPEAKS OUT AFTER FALSE ACCUSATION FROM ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT

A longtime conservative operative is calling on the Trump administration to reform the country’s visa laws after he was falsely accused of a crime he said an illegal alien charged likely in order to score a visa.

A woman in late 2016 claimed Codias Brown harassed and exposed himself to her over a two-week period and said he was seeking her out in public places, according to an arrest affidavit. The accuser, Rosa Patino-Herrera, claimed she encountered Brown — someone she didn’t know personally — around eight different times and believed he was seeking her out around the city of Austin, where he also lived.

The term “Gerasimov Doctrine”, apparently wholly made up Mark Galeotti who, to his credit, owned up to his mistake, has been used by the Western media to the point of obscuring the real work on developing national security doctrines for Russia’s 21st century needs. In this work, General Valeriy Gerasimov, Chief of General Staff of the Russian Federation Armed Forces, has played a major role. During a recent conference at the Academy of Military Sciences, where Gerasimov delivered the keynote speech, he outlined the national security priorities facing the Russian Federation. This included areas where further theoretical research is necessary to inform the future dimensions of armed forces development.

'I hope it inspires the Americans': Hungarian mayor boasts that new 10ft razor-wire electric border fence has protected his country from mass immigration 

A mayor in Hungary has boasted that a new 10ft razor-wire electric border fence has protected his country from mass immigration - and hopes it will 'inspire' the US.

László Toroczkai insists the 100-mile fence, erected during the 2015 migrant crisis in Europe, had 'saved' his town - Ásotthalom - on Hungary's border with Serbia.

The far-right mayor claims the two parallel barriers - guarded by soldiers, thermal cameras and 3,000 'border hunters' - has restored 'calmness' in the rural community which had been in the path of a wave of refugees moving north through the continent three years ago.

Toroczkai, who is bidding for leadership of the ultra-nationalist Jobbik movement, believes US President Donald Trump should be encouraged by Hungary's hard line stance and insisted: 'I hope it inspires the Americans.'

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.

Can WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange Get a Fair Trial?

British police dragged WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London on April 11, witnessed by a scrum of international media. Authorities in the United Kingdom and US then tried to drag Assange’s reputation through the mud.

The official story was that Assange wore out his welcome at the embassy. News stories reported that he skateboarded through the offices, dirtied his bathroom, and let his cat poop in the halls. The man who had exposed government wrongdoing around the world had become the Hacker Who Came to Dinner.

Whatever the truth to those accusations, in reality, Assange was the victim of regime change. In 2017, Ecuadorians elected Lenin Moreno president and, in a sharp departure from previous government policy, the new president sought closer relations with the US. Moreno decided to expel Assange as part of the bargain.

Army budget request adds $1.5B for network modernization

The Army plans to spend more than $8.4 billion over the next five years to modernize its battlefield network, according to the Pentagon’s latest budget request and Army documents.

The plan includes about $1.5 billion more for fiscal years 2020 -2023 than Army leaders projected to spend on the network in last year’s budget request.

Network modernization is one of the top six modernization priorities for the Army’s chief of staff. These priorities seek to better posture the Army to fight and win against near peer adversaries readying the service to be “multidomain” capable by 2028.

The Army believes it will need hardened and resilient communications in the face of sophisticated jamming techniques. It also will need the ability to more rapidly share data for improved situational awareness allowing forces to be more mobile and dispersed.

What US intelligence believes happened with North Korea's weapons test

The US does not believe North Korea successfully launched a fully operational new weapon after Pyongyang claimed it had conducted a "new tactical guided weapons firing test" on Wednesday, according to a US official directly familiar with the latest assessment.

The initial US intelligence assessment is North Korea tested components for an anti-tank weapon, rather than a fully operational new weapon, the official told CNN on Thursday.

The assessment is based on a review of information gathered from satellites and aircraft that did not register any indication of a launch of any type of short-range tactical weapon or a ballistic missile, the official said.

Cygnus Cargo Spaceship Makes Easter Delivery to International Space Station

This morning, astronauts on the International Space Station successfully grappled Northrop Grumman Corp.'s Cygnus spacecraft with the station's robotic arm, snagging 7,600 lbs (3,447 kilograms) of cargo, just in time for Easter.

On April 17, the spacecraft launched on Northrop Grumman's Antares rocket from Pad-0A at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The mid-afternoon launch drew record-breaking crowds from the surrounding area and went off without a hitch. "The spacecraft is very healthy, it's performing very well," Frank DeMauro, vice president and general manager for space systems at Northrop Grumman, said at a post-launch news conference on April 17.

After launch, the spacecraft's solar arrays successfully deployed and began to generate power for the craft. Once the vehicle arrived at the space station, NASA astronaut Anne McClain grappled the craft with Canadarm2, the Canadian robotic arm that is attached to the station.

Flyers cut ties with Kate Smith recordings after 'offensive lyrics' come to light

More than 30 years after the death of Kate Smith, who famously sang “God Bless America” before Flyers games, the team has cut ties with recordings of the singer they used to play on the scoreboard as a good-luck charm.

The Flyers followed the footsteps of the New York Yankees, who have also stopped using recordings of Smith singing “God Bless America,” after a report from the New York Daily News highlighted a racist song that was a top-20 hit in 1931.

Smith’s recording of a song entitled “That's Why Darkies Were Born,” included lyrics “Someone had to pick the cotton, someone had to pick the corn, someone had to slave and be able to sing.”

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.

‘The Cross Belongs in the Dustbin of History’: Muslim Brothers Claim Islam Exempt from Law

Two Muslim brothers who claimed Australian law did not apply to them or their religion have been fined for contempt of court.
Mustapha and Diaa Kara-Ali reportedly laughed and began abusing the judge as the punishment was handed down in Sydney’s Land and Environment Court, after they were found guilty of felling trees without council permission.

The brothers had tried to argue the Islamic organisation they ran, Diwan Al Dawla, was exempt from Australian law on religious grounds and they were free to develop their rural retreat – which included clearing native trees – as they saw fit.

The court ruled otherwise, ABC News Australia reports.

In sentencing the two men on Thursday, Justice Terence Sheahan said the pair only engaged in the court process “following my reluctant decision to have you arrested … to address the problems you’ve created”, describing their contempt of the court as “flagrant”.

Donald Trump said the best proof of ‘no obstruction’ was the fact that he generously allowed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to conclude his futile Russiagate witch hunt, even though as president he had the power to end the probe.

“I had the right to end the whole Witch Hunt if I wanted. I could have fired everyone, including Mueller, if I wanted,” Trump tweeted, after the publication of the redacted version of the two-year probe. “I chose not to. I had the RIGHT to use Executive Privilege. I didn’t!”

‘We all watched with tears in our eyes’ as Notre Dame burnt – Putin

The inferno which engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was a hard sight to witness, Vladimir Putin has told French businessmen in the Kremlin. Russian companies are eager to join reconstruction efforts, he added.
"We’re all sorry. We all watched this with tears in our eyes,” the president said as he described his reaction, and that of many Russians, as the blaze struck in the heart of the French capital on Monday.

Notre Dame is not just a symbol of France, but a symbol of the whole of European civilization, Putin pointed out as he met with the top managers from Total, Reno, Auchan and some other major French businesses in the Kremlin.

French President Emmanuel Macron has pledged to rebuild the devastated Notre Dame within the next five years. The Russian leader expressed confidence that those plans will be fulfilled and made assurances that Russian companies, which have interests in France, were ready to help with the reconstruction of the landmark.

“The attorney general’s office began a criminal process against Ricardo Patino for the alleged crime of instigation,” the office said in a statement on Thursday. “[Patino] had given a speech in which he instigated people to take over public institutions and close roads.”

RUMORS OF WAR: WASHINGTON IS LOOKING FOR A FIGHT

Authored by Philip Giraldi via The Strategic Culture Foundation

But even given all of the horrific decisions being made in the White House, there is one organization that is far crazier and possibly even more dangerous. That is the United States Congress, which is, not surprisingly, a legislative body that is viewed positively by only 18 per cent of the American people.

A current bill originally entitled the “Defending American Security from Kremlin Aggression Act (DASKA) of 2019,” is numbered S-1189.

It has been introduced in the Senate which will “…require the Secretary of State to determine whether the Russian Federation should be designated as a state sponsor of terrorism and whether Russian-sponsored armed entities in Ukraine should be designated as foreign terrorist organizations.” The bill is sponsored by Republican Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado and is co-sponsored by Democrat Robert Menendez of New Jersey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will, again, take the Congress out of its Constitutionally, legally binding, responsibility to declare war; and considering that our current Secretary of State is Mike Pompeo, a Dominionist, who fervently believes that a world war is a great thing, because it will cause Jesus to make his second appearance on this planet, is something which would be a fearsome responsibility for even a sane Secretary of State, which is something we do not have now.

One has to wonder if Gardner and Menendez are closet Dominionists, but I know from a standpoint of Menendez, he is doing his best to wipe the vomit off of him, from a criminal corruption case which ended with a hung jury.

Menendez Hung Jury Sends a Powerful Message to GovernmentThe article goes on to state:

The U.S. Department of Justice had charged Menendez with doing official favors for his friend and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor, in exchange for expensive hotel stays, private jet flights and hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions.

"While Menendez walked out of the courthouse a free man, the cloud of the corruption trial still hangs over him. Federal prosecutors have not yet said if they will re-try the case but the Senate Ethics Committee plans to resume its own investigation of Menendez."

North Korea Demands Pompeo's Removal From Nuclear Talks With US

The highly anticipated second meeting between US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in Hanoi ended abruptly earlier this year without agreement after Washington refused to offer North Korea any relief from its economic sanctions while pushing for the country’s complete nuclear disarmament.

A North Korean Foreign Ministry official has said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “talking nonsense” in suggesting that working-level negotiations between the countries would be finished by the year’s end, reported state-run KCNA.

The official, Kwon Jong Gun added: “I am afraid that if Pompeo engages in the talks again, the table will be lousy once again and the talks will become entangled. Therefore, even in the case of possible resumption of the dialogue with the US, I wish our dialogue counterpart would be not Pompeo but other person who is more careful and mature in communicating with us.”

Britain's role in the suffering of Yemen – squalid beyond belief

Britain’s unending boast that it stands as a beacon of human rights and justice is belied by the cruel plight inflicted on the people of Yemen.

If a special place in hell is reserved for a Saudi kleptocracy that wears its barbarism as a badge of honor rather than shame, Britain’s ignoble role in actively facilitating Riyadh’s murderous war in Yemen is surely deserving of the same.

Thinking about it the scope of the inhuman brutality that has been inflicted on the Yemeni people over the course of a conflict that began in 2015, it is near impossible to fathom the pristine hypocrisy of a British political establishment that is never done lecturing the world on matters great and small.

Fire-ravaged Notre Dame now stabilized, firefighters leave

Architects and construction workers have now stabilized the damaged structure of Notre Dame cathedral, four days after a fast-spreading fire ravaged the iconic Paris building, and firefighters will leave the site Friday night, a fire brigade spokesman said.

“There is no more risk the edifice’s walls could fall down,” Lt. Col. Gabriel Plus told The Associated Press, adding that firefighters have been able to cool down the walls and debris from the roof inside the cathedral.

“It’s a miracle that the cathedral is still standing, and that all the relics were saved,” he said.

Earlier, the cathedral’s rector said a “computer glitch” may have been behind the rapidly spreading blaze that devastated the 850-year-old architectural masterpiece.

Rector Patrick Chauvet did not elaborate on the exact nature of the glitch. “We may find out what happened in two or three months,” he told a meeting of local business leaders.

It’s official: the collapse of the mainstream media’s credibility is now complete

Attorney General William Barr held a press conference this morning to address the contents of the Mueller report, just as he promised to do. Not long after, Barr delivered the full Mueller report to the public with necessary redactions, also as promised. And yet the mainstream media, which demanded all of these things and has now received them, still isn’t happy.

In fact, most fake news media pundits are now foaming at the mouth, questioning Barr’s loyalties and accusing him of colluding with President Donald Trump to convey the "spun" message that he’s innocent – which it would seem as though no amount of evidence will ever convince those with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is actually true.
