REPOST: WikiLeaks founder addresses death of DNC staffer Seth Rich in Fox News interview

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has spoken out about the death of a Democratic National Committee staffer killed nearby his Washington D.C. home.

In the past, Assange hinted Seth Rich may have been a WikiLeaks informant, and in an exclusive interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly, he revealed even more.

But once again, Assange skirted the question of whether Rich was an informant in the interview. He would only say he was concerned about any potential sources who would try to help WikiLeaks in its endeavors.

Kelly also questioned Assange about WikiLeaks' involvement with the Russians in American politics and his view of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, including what information he may have on Trump and if it will ever be released.

But the exchange with Kelly about the D.C. murder of the 27-year-old Democratic National Committee employee revealed some interesting information.

Three people, incl Turkish Deputy Consul-General, killed in Erbil shooting – local media

Three people, including the Turkish deputy consul, have been killed in a shooting at a restaurant in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan, according to local media. Police confirmed the death of the Turkish diplomat.

The shooting was reported shortly after 2pm local time, and took place at a restaurant in an upmarket area of Iraqi Kurdistan’s capital city. While local media reported that all three victims were officials with the Consulate General, Turkey’s Foreign Ministry only confirmed the death of one diplomat.

John F. Kennedy Jr.: Evidence Of A Cover up

We live in a time of very unpleasant realities. Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government of the United States and the media have started (to put it politely) economizing it. Documented cases of media deception over the years have made it clear that the media lies to the public on important issues. As Richard Salent, Former President of CBS News has stated, media's job is to feed the public what media thinks the public ought to know. Clearly, anything that happens that the media doesn't think the public needs to know about will simply not be reported.

US POLICE HAVE KILLED OVER 1,200% MORE CITIZENS THAN MASS SHOOTERS SINCE 2015

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Tragically, in America, mass shootings — in which murdering psychopaths go on rampages in public spaces — have claimed the lives of 339 people since 2015. While this number is certainly shocking and far too high, during this same time frame, police in America have claimed the lives of 4,355 citizens.

While some of these citizens were armed and dangerous, others were innocent, unarmed, and include small children. Daniel Shaver was one of these people whose life was brought to a screeching halt as he begged on his knees for police not to shoot him. Despite being innocent and unarmed, this father of three was murdered in cold blood by Philip Brailsford who was never held accountable and allowed to retire from the police force with his pension.

ARMY CORPS ADMITS TO DUMPING TOXIC WATER INTO FLORIDA ESTUARIES WITHOUT TELLING PUBLIC

Last week, during a meeting of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, an Army Corps of Engineers official admitted that the agency has been dumping toxic water from Lake Okeechobee into local estuaries without any warning to the public.

For years, this has been an open secret among the area’s residents, who have seen the consequences of this policy on the region’s wildlife, but this is the first time the government has admitted that it is actually happening.

Republican Congressman Brian Mast questioned Maj. Gen. Scott Spellmon of the Army Corps during the meeting, asking him about the water that was being diverted from Lake Okeechobee into estuaries on the coasts of Florida. Mast asked if the water that was dumped into the estuaries contained cyanobacteria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There should be a class action lawsuit against the Army Corps of Engineers for this willful pollution of these waters, and all who have been hurt by this, should get compensated.

BREAKING: Lawsuit Outs Reporter Ellen Ratner as Source for Seth Rich Information

Businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit on Monday that outed FOX News reporter Ellen Ratner was his source for the Seth Rich information.

This comes after Michael Isikoff’s report last week that labeled Butowsky as a Russian source.

Ed told The Gateway Pundit today that Ellen Ratner lied to Isikoff.
Ed provided The Gateway Pundit with a copy of his email with Ratner.

Butowsky added that he spoke with Isikoff off the record and he broke his trust by contacting Ratner.

Butowsky told The Gateway Pundit that after last week’s report he was forced to speak out.
Ed also says he has more evidence that Ratner was his source on the Seth Rich information.

Butowsky claims Ratner gathered the information on Seth Rich after contact with Wikileaks officials.

US-TRAINED TROOPS SHOOT HONDURAN STUDENTS PROTESTING PRIVATIZATION

Anya Parampil reports from inside a student occupation at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH), where US-trained troops shot activists protesting the Juan Orlando Hernandez government’s attempt to privatize education and healthcare.

VIDEO BY BEN NORTON

Anya Parampil is a journalist based in Washington, DC. She previously hosted a daily progressive afternoon news program called In Question on RT America. She has produced and reported several documentaries, including on-the-ground reports from the Korean peninsula and Palestine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anya and Ben, my prayers are with you both this morning.

The privatization of these two areas, will result in the following outcomes: the monied will have their children educated, and taken care of, medically; those without money, will simply be consigned to rot in the streets.

And I suddenly got curious, as to just when the last detail of US troops trained some of their Honduran counterparts, and my jaw dropped at the following, from SOUTHCOM:
Honduran soldiers complete U.S. Army led Security Forces Training

And the date of this article: 11 June, 2019, just a little over a month ago..

Apparently, the bit about shooting student protestors somehow... didn't quite make its way into this article.

Big Lie that ‘mass shootings’ like Sandy Hook require public gun confiscation must be flipped: arrest .01% US rogue state leaders to confiscate THEIR guns for shooting millions in lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression, assassinating JFK, RFK, MLK, etc.,

Americans are propagandized with a "Big Lie" that law-abiding citizens must be disarmed because our .01% government engages in mass war and poverty-murders in the annual millions! Please ask and answer for yourself: do our "leaders" care about innocent people and therefore take extraordinary care for public safety, OR are they frightened about public awakening to their rogue state empire and want Americans disarmed to more safely dominate? You are aware that public gun confiscation was our previous government's last move before our ancestors' last American Revolution, so if you honor the breakthrough in freedom We the People stand for, you'd better "arm yourself" with talking points to flip this debate: disarm .01% lying, looting, rogue state criminals, then arrest them.

PENTAGON DOCUMENT SHOWS U.S. KNEW OF “CREDIBLE” REPORTS OF CIVILIAN CASUALTIES AFTER ITS ATTACKS IN SOMALIA

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
On April 1, 2018, the U.S. military carried out an airstrike near El Buur, a town in central Somalia. A press release issued by U.S. Africa Command a day later announced that the attack killed five “terrorists” and destroyed one vehicle.

In reality, these “terrorists” included a civilian woman and a child.

AFRICOM, however, told the world a different story. “We assess no civilians were killed in this airstrike,” the command claimed, a regular feature of press releases following U.S. attacks in Somalia. A year later, AFRICOM publicly admitted those two, but only those two, civilian deaths. “This is our first confirmed civilian casualty incident in Somalia,” AFRICOM’s chief spokesperson, John Manley, told The Intercept in the aftermath of the reversal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....credibility assessments??????

You have got to be flipping kidding me.

There can be no credibility, coming from a place in the US military, where cover-ups, denials, and plausible deniability, are always the name of the game.

The people involved with this, should be called SANITIZERS, as their job, is to present the most clean, fact-free statements, in a time-limited sound bite.

July 4, 2019 interview with JFK, MLK, RFK: Life or death choices For all of us in America’s 2nd Revolution for Independence

Facts that the public assassinations of a sitting president, our greatest and most powerful civil rights leader, and in 1968 the likely president, all by Deep State operatives, demonstrate that America has long been engaged in a second revolution of independence. In this interview, I imagine what these great leaders would say about what happened to them, and what Americans might consider in our world of the present.

CORE HONG KONG PROTESTERS 'PREPARED TO DIE FOR THEIR CAUSE' DURING RIOTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

A core group of radical protesters who led the violent siege of Hong Kong's legislature on Monday were willing to die for their cause as martyrs, according to SCMP.

Approximately ten 'diehards' with a 'bring it on' attitude had no qualms about facing police batons, rubber bullets or worse, as they broke into and trashed the Legislative Council building.

"The protesters at the front were willing to sacrifice themselves. They turned so violent, hoping police would use aggressive force against them or shoot them with rubber bullets or beanbag rounds," said SCMP's source, adding "If the individuals were badly injured or even killed, all the blame would have been placed on police so as to spark global condemnation, and eventually bring the whole administration down."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the core group "ready to die" for their convictions, a word, please; the Chinese leadership will not ultimately allow these demonstrations to go forward; President Xi Jinping is thoroughly familiar with the power of a 24/7 news cycle, and will find some way to create a "lights off, energy not there" moment, when you will be seized, killed in private, where no one will know where you are when it happens, save for your families who will be charged to pay for the bullet(s) when you are executed.

REVERED SOCIAL LEADER AND ACTIVIST KILLED IN COLOMBIA

SOURCE: TELESURENGLISH.NET

Social leader Tatiana Paola Posso Espitia, 35, was shot twice in the head Wednesday morning in front of her house in El Copey located in the Department of Cesar when two men on motorcycles fired at the activist and fled the scene.

The assassination occurred just as Espitia’s taxi driver, Wilson Ortega Palomino, arrived at her home to take the social leader to work, according to local media reports. The bad timing resulted in Ortega also being shot four times by the hitmen. He is in critical condition at a nearby hospital.

The National Network for Democracy and Peace in Colombia published a communique on its Twitter account firmly condemning the murder.

“Posso Espitia was a social activist committed to humanitarian aid, helping vulnerable people and victims of the armed conflict that continue to affect Colombia,” said the report.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for her friends and her family; but expect no movement from the current Colombian government in terms of identifying the killers, which probably got their "marching orders" from certain elements in that same government, which wanted her dead.

ETHIOPIA’S FAILED COUP ATTEMPT ALMOST PUSHED THE COUNTRY TO THE EDGE OF COLLAPSE

A coup attempt in the historic Ethiopian core region of Amhara was narrowly thwarted even though the state chief was killed and the country’s top military leader was assassinated in a related incident that later took place in the capital, with the failure of this regional regime change effort saving Africa’s second most populous country from civil war and subsequent collapse, at least for now.

Trump: Allowing FBI to Investigate Khashoggi Murder Would Jeopardize Saudi Arms Sales

Trump dismissed the murder in the first place over fears of “over $100 billion” in arms sales, and is now saying they’re going to spend $400 billion to $450 billion “over a period of time, all money, all jobs.”

Trump spoke with the Crown Prince last week, roughly at the time the UN report that once again blamed him for the murder came out. Trump, however, said that the murder “really didn’t come up” in their conversation.

It’s not clear which is the more disturbing possibility here, if President Trump was pressured once again by the Crown Prince to cover up this murder, or if he’s moved on so far from being bought off on that murder that he didn’t bother to bring it up in a week when both a UN report on the murder was coming and the Senate was voting against arms sales specifically because of that murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our own "Merchant of Death-In-Chief", aka President Trump, has absolutely no understanding, of how completely tone-deaf this sounds, to other Saudi victims of its despotic rulers, or families of innocents Yemenis, killed or crippled by these bombs.

Apparently, for this President, profits trump morality every time; that is a very sad, but real, aspect to this man's psychological make up, and the leadership of this country.

Did they really kill him?

It has often been said that President Mohamed Morsi did not die a natural death, as many insisted that he was killed. The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan questioned the way Morsi died, and said that he would raise the issue during the G20 summit. The German Foreign Ministry and several human rights organisations have called for a neutral international investigation into the real cause of the former Egyptian President’s death, proving that he did not die as a result of medical negligence, as many say, although Morsi was actually neglected deliberately.

But what prompted them to doubt the circumstances of his death?

There are many uncertainties and facts that may raise doubts:

NO EVIDENCE ISLAMIC STATE HAD FOREKNOWLEDGE OF SRI LANKA BOMBINGS, SAYS OFFICIAL

SOURCE: INTELNEWS.ORG
It is not at all clear that the Islamic State and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who claimed responsibility of the Sri Lanka bombings in April, had foreknowledge of the attacks, according to a top official. The militant Sunni group claimed it was behind the nine suicide blasts that targeted Catholic churches and five-star hotels in Sri Lanka’s western and eastern coastal regions on April 21. The near-simultaneous bombings killed 258 people and injured over 500. They are believed to constitute the bloodiest terrorist attack in the country’s history. Interestingly, many questioned the authenticity of the Islamic State’s claim of responsibility, which came a full two days following the deadly blasts. The group typically issues statements immediately following attacks by its followers around the world. The 48-hour delay in the case of the Sri Lanka bombings, therefore, was deemed “uncharacteristic” by some experts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this report is true (hard to prove, either way) it gives us yet another insight as to how these groups act, and exchange information.

The video, in al-Baghdadi's hands, would, of course, be a PR "coup", even if it was not his group directly, but some underlings who actually did this attack, before he even knew it had happened.

Whistleblower Who Warned About False Flag Attacks to Justify U.S. Invasion of Iran Found Dead, YouTube Channel Removed

Whistleblower David Goldberg, a resident of New York City, has reportedly died of unknown causes.

Yesterday, the governmentslaves.news site reported that the White House insider who was quoted — David Goldberg (59 years old) — has since been found dead in his New York apartment on June 8th. His death is being investigated and no cause of death has yet been disclosed.

Goldberg also said that a false flag attack would be used to escalate the situation, which appears to be what we’ve seen take place in the Gulf of Oman with the two attack of two oil tankers.

In April of 2019, Goldberg warned the world of a false flag attack planned by the U.S. Military and Intelligence Community working in concert with Israel’s Mossad.

ETHIOPIA ARMY CHIEF SHOT DEAD BY OWN BODYGUARD IN FAILED COUP

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
Ethiopia’s Defense Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Sea’re Mekonnen was killed in the late hours of Saturday by his own guard, the government confirmed, reports Anadolu Agency.

The chief of staff, according to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who delivered a message to the nation on Sunday, died trying to prevent a coup attempt in Ethiopia’s northern Amhara region.

A retired general who goes by the name Geza’e Abera was also killed at the home of Sea’re, said Press Secretary of the Prime Minister Office Nigusu Tilahun on Sunday.

The killers have been arrested and an investigation has been launched, he added.

He said the coup was orchestrated by Brig. Gen. Asaminew Tsige, who is the chief of the regional security bureau. Asaminew was one the many political prisoners given amnesty after the coming to power of Abiy in April last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cui bono?!?

Who benefits from this assassination, and will there be more of them?!? Only time will tell, but the resources Ethiopia has are an absolute "embarrassment of riches."

Natural Resources of Ethiopia These resources include: Major Natural Resources In Ethiopia
The country has a few known reserves of precious metals and other natural resources such as gold, potash, natural gas, copper, and platinum. In addition to all these resources, there is also an extensive potential for the generation of hydropower.

However, the most abundant natural resource is arguably natural gas. Explorations in the past have shown that Ethiopia has some of the largest deposits of natural gas compared to most countries in Africa. Despite all this potential, natural gas has not been properly exploited yet. The potential is so high that the geology of some parts of the country, like that of the Ogaden basin, resembles the natural gas-rich geological structures of oil and gas fields in the Middle East

We will soon see if American or Chinese forces in Africa, will vow to lend their services as "Advisors" to the Ethiopian government; both countries want a foothold here.

The ongoing cover-up of the almost certain murder of the famous monk, Thomas Merton, has taken an interesting turn.

MORSI 'KILLED' BY EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT, SON SAYS

'HE WAS MURDERED'
Morsi's death was mourned by many people around the world, including in Turkey, where mosques held special prayers on Tuesday, while leaders in Malaysia and Qatar were among those offering tributes.

However, the reaction has been largely muted in many capitals.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a key ally of Morsi, said this week that the Egyptian government should be tried in international courts for the death of the former president.

"Mohamed Morsi flailed on the courtroom floor for 20 minutes and the authorities did not help him. This is why I say Morsi did not die, he was murdered," Erdogan told supporters on Wednesday at an election rally in Istanbul.

"We, as Turkey, will follow this issue and do everything possible for Egypt to be tried in international courts for Morsi's death," he said, calling on the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to take action towards this end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, Color me unsurprised by this possible revelation.

And why, at the very first sign of his distress, was he not given medical aid?!? That seems very fishy to me.

Case Closed: JFK Killed After Shutting Down Rothschild’s Federal Reserve

On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Rothschild Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest.
With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Rothschild Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. The Christian Law Fellowship has exhaustively researched this matter through the Federal Register and Library of Congress.

We can now safely conclude that this Executive Order has never been repealed, amended, or superceded by any subsequent Executive Order. In simple terms, it is still valid.

When President John Fitzgerald Kennedy signed this Order, it returned to the United States federal government, specifically the Treasury Department, the Constitutional power to create and issue currency – money – without going through the privately owned Rothschild Federal Reserve Bank.

UN Finds "Credible Evidence" MbS Ordered Khashoggi Murder; Shocking Audio Detailed

A United Nations expert and special rapporteur has submitted a 101-page report calling on UN secretary-general António Guterres to initiate a “follow-up criminal investigation” after finding “sufficient credible evidence” that the grisly Oct. 2 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul was on the direct orders of crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) and other high level officials.

Agnes Callamard, the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, described in her report that Khashoggi was the “victim of a deliberate, premeditated execution, an extrajudicial killing for which the state of Saudi Arabia is responsible under international human rights law”.

Morsi’s death was a political assassination by a vindictive regime

Mohamed Morsi will forever be remembered as Egypt’s first democratically-elected President, something that his enemies can never take away from him. Yesterday, he collapsed and died in a Cairo courtroom just moments after he had addressed the hearing from a cage; he was facing ludicrous charges of espionage linked to the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas.

Unsurprisingly, the Muslim Brotherhood called his death “murder”, an accusation that is not as outrageous as it might sound. I would call it a political assassination in full view of a watching world. The consequences of this in the volatile Middle East could be horrific, considering the paranoia of the Egyptian regime under its current dictator.

Morsi left unconscious for 20 minutes before first aid administered

The Independent has reported today that prison guards in the courtroom where Morsi collapsed on Monday left the former president of Egypt for over 20 minutes before administering first aid, despite the fact that people around him were calling for help.

Morsi collapsed at a court session on 17 June after suffering six years in prison in solitary confinement where he was consistently denied access to medical care for his diabetes, hypertension and liver and kidney disease.

Jun 19 09:03

Who killed Mohamed Morsi?

Egypt’s first democratically elected president met an end as dramatic as his one and only year in power.

The date alone on which it happened is significant. Mohamed Morsi died on 17 June, seven years to the day from the second round of his presidential election.

For all of his time in prison, Morsi was held in solitary confinement. He was allowed only three visits from his family in nearly six years. The state had ample opportunity to kill off a diabetic who suffered from high blood pressure in private, but if they wanted to convince the Egyptian people that their former president was dead, the job would have to be done in public, which is what Monday’s events were all about.

The cruellest pharaoh

We will never know the truth. Morsi’s nemesis, the man he handpicked to lead the army and who went on to depose him, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, will never allow for an international investigation. Egypt is ruled by a pharaoh as absolute and cruel as any in its long history.

THE MURDER OF JOURNALIST MICHAEL HASTINGS

On this day in 2013, US journalist Michael Hastings died under mysterious circumstances.

News reports said he was traveling at 100 miles per hour and his car exploded when he hit a tree.

Wrong and wrong.

Video analysis by a physics professor says he was traveling less than 40 mph and his car exploded before he hit a tree and the engine and drive train were found over 100 feet away – behind where the car hit the tree, a physical impossibility from a collision. Multiple explosions were reported.

Hastings body was cremated after the official autopsy – against the wishes of the family.

More Than 500 Torture Cases Documented By UN In Ukraine Conflict

KYIV -- The UN Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine has documented more than 500 cases of ill-treatment, incommunicado detention, and torture by both Ukrainian government forces and Russia-backed separatists since the conflict erupted in April 2014, the mission’s head said in Kyiv on June 13.

“We believe, however, that this is the tip of the iceberg, as torture is a systemic issue in Ukraine that was exacerbated by the armed conflict,” Fiona Frazer told reporters at a press conference where she presented a new UN report.

In many instances, Frazer said, “the alleged perpetrators are the state security services and the so-called ‘ministries of state security’ of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic and the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, I know you are "juggling a zillion chain saws" right now, as we say in our colloquial English, meaning, you are dealing with a number of crises in Ukraine, and trying to triage them at this moment.

But please, as a human being first, and secondly, as a Ukrainian Jew, who understands the horrific depths of ,"faith based" lethal behaviour inflicted on your ancestors, you have to try to get this madness to stop.

I would like to commend to you a little historical study, about the German Nazi in World War II, who refused to torture his English-speaking prisoners of war. The man's name was Hanns-Joachim Gottlob Scharff.

Wikipedia: Hans Scharff

Between both World wars, Scharff studied English, and had a magnificent grasp of the language.

But rather than use the torture techniques well-known - and used - by the Nazi SS upon their prisoners, Scharff used only kindness, even inviting them out for day passes at cultural events. He was able to convince these prisoners that he already knew everything about them, and their operations, when he really didn't, and was a superb interrogator.

When the war concluded, the US military brass was so completely taken by him, that they invited him to give seminars about how his technique worked.

Because, Mr. President, torture...only gets the tortured person to say whatever his torturers want him to say, to get the torture to stop, even if the information is completely, and horribly, wrong.

So, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, I - and other thinking Americans - wish (and pray) you "God Speed" on this very tough set of situations you confront, in this "tightrope" walk between Russian, and Western, interests.

And may its resolution come about in a way that is good for all Ukrainians.

Why Didn't Mueller Investigate Seth Rich?

The idea that the DNC email disclosures were produced by a hack - not a leak - makes less and less sense...

After bungling every last aspect of Russia-gate since the day the pseudo-scandal broke, the corporate press is now seizing on the Mueller report to shut down debate on one of the key questions still outstanding from the 2016 presidential election: the murder of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

No one knows who killed Rich in Washington, D.C., on July 10, 2016. All we know is that he was found at 4:19 a.m. in the Bloomingdale neighborhood “with apparent gunshot wound(s) to the back” according to the police report. Conscious and still breathing, he was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:57.

The Caliphate Project, Made in America. Declassified U.S. Government Documents Confirm the US Supported the Creation of ISIS

Global Research Editor’s Note:

First published in May 2015, this article reveals not only that the ISIS is a creation of US intelligence, it also confirms that the Caliphate Project was designed in Washington.

The newly-declassified document continues:

Yes, you read that correctly:

… there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime ….

In other words, the powers supporting the Syrian opposition – the West, our Gulf allies, and Turkey wanted an Islamic caliphate in order to challenge Syrian president Assad.

Sure, top U.S. generals – and vice president Vice President Joe Biden – have said that America’s closest allies support ISIS. And mainstream American media have called for direct support of ISIS.

US WIPES OUT AFGHAN SECURITY FORCES UNIT IN MAJOR FRIENDLY FIRE INCIDENT

SOURCE: ANTIWAR.COM
By Jason Ditz
For the second time in less than a month, US forces carried out airstrikes “in self defense” in Afghanistan, only to discover that they were actually attacking Afghan security forces. The Wednesday strike ended up wiping out an entire unit, though officials have yet to disclose the exact number of deaths, beyond it apparently being everyone present.

The previous attack saw US ground troops believing they were under fire, and the warplanes attacking police, killing 18. In this case, too, US officials said they believed the troops came under fire, and the airstrikes targeted the Afghan forces, who had been firing machine guns.

Despite all the talk of self defense and US troops being “under effective fire,” officials insist not a single US casualty occurred. US officials expressed “regret” for the deaths of Afghan partners.

SAUDI TEEN FACES EXECUTION, CRUCIFIXION FOR TAKING PART IN PROTEST AT AGE 10

A teenager who has been imprisoned by the Saudi Arabian government for nearly 5 years is facing execution for taking part in a protest that happened 8 years ago when he was just 10 years old. Murtaja Qureiris was initially arrested when he was 13 years old, 3 years after an Arab Spring related protest that he took part in.

He has spent at least 15 months of his 5 years in prison isolated in solitary confinement.

The Saudi government has charged him with engaging in anti-government protests, possession of a firearm and they also allege that he was affiliated with a terrorist organization. A boy that was only ten years old at the time is accused of being a gun-wielding terrorist, and now they want to torture and kill him, then mutilate his body.

The prosecutor in the case has recommended that after the now 18-year-old young man is killed, his body should be dismembered, or crucified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, a word, please: if one of your BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, Mohammed bin Salman, is about to sign off on an execution of this boy, for crimes (most likely coerced under torture) this kid did at the age of 10, will you not, please, try to intervene here?!? After all, you do have the Prince's ear right now, as the US is thoroughly, and completely complicit in his genocide in Yemen.

Or, sir, is the part of his "luster" for you, that he can have people mercilessly tortured and killed, with absolutely no repercussions, for "crimes" they may well not have actually committed, but confessed to, in order to get the torture to stop?

I have come to the very dark conclusion, Mr. President, that this may well be true. The power to kill with impunity, coupled with this Prince's great wealth, are what draws you to him, like a moth to a flame.

But sir, I would very strongly, peacefully, and logically caution you, that this flame can be most dangerous.

You have just signed off on Saudi Arabia getting advanced weapons technology
Trump Allows High-Tech U.S. Bomb Parts to Be Built in Saudi Arabia

THE OMNIPRESENT SURVEILLANCE STATE: ORWELL’S 1984 IS NO LONGER FICTION

SOURCE: ACTIVIST POST

1984 portrays a global society of total control in which people are not allowed to have thoughts that in any way disagree with the corporate state. There is no personal freedom, and advanced technology has become the driving force behind a surveillance-driven society. Snitches and cameras are everywhere. People are subject to the Thought Police, who deal with anyone guilty of thought crimes. The government, or “Party,” is headed by Big Brother who appears on posters everywhere with the words: “Big Brother is watching you.”

We have arrived, way ahead of schedule, into the dystopian future dreamed up by not only Orwell but also such fiction writers as Aldous Huxley, Margaret Atwood and Philip K. Dick.

UAE-Backed Militants Raid Yemen Mosque, Kill and Abduct Worshipers

The United Arab Emirates-backed paramilitary forces in Yemen have long been criticized for their abusive behavior toward civilians, particularly civilians in contested regions. This weekend, that recurring problem centered on Dhale Province.

On Friday, a mosque in Dhale same under attack by the UAE-backed forces, who forced their way in, killed six worshipers, and kidnapped another four. The identities of the captured people have not been confirmed.

The UAE forces, however, issued a statement saying that everyone that they killed were “Houthi rebels who refused to surrender.” None of them have been identified conclusively.

In Yemen’s southwest, Dhale had been under the control of Saudi and UAE-backed forces throughout much of the war, but in recent months, the Houthis have returned to the area and carved out an area which has resisted a number of offensives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, assassinations of innocent civilians... is OUR thing!!" Official Saudi Souse.

And the kills go on, and on, mercilessly, when the only answer to this horrific genocide against the Houthis, as mentioned by people familiar with the region, and its background, is through negotiations.

And the US government is complicit, up to its neck, in Saudi/UAE crimes in Yemen.

EYEWITNESS SAW A SECOND SHOOTER FIRING AN "AUTOMATIC HIGH-POWERED RIFLE" OUTSIDE ROUTE 91 VENUE ON 1 OCTOBER, FBI DOCUMENTS REVEAL

SOURCE: INTELLIHUB
Mention of second and third 1 October shooters appears in official FBI report obtained by Intellihub.

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — A female who attended the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the night of October 1, 2017, where 58 people lost their lives to automatic gunfire told the investigators from the Federal Bureau of Investigation that she saw a second shooter firing a high-powered automatic rifle from a parking lot located to the east of the venue where country music singer Jason Aldean and his band were playing onstage at the time of the shooting.

The eyewitness told investigators with the bureau that she and about 20 other concertgoers managed to escape the venue grounds and head northeast toward the Tropicana during the third volley of gunfire.

Israel’s Attack on the USS Liberty: A Half Century Later, Still No Justice

Two F-4s left the carrier to come to the Liberty’s aid. Apparently, the jets were armed only with nuclear weapons. When word reached the Pentagon, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara became irate and ordered the jets to return. “Tell the Sixth Fleet to get those aircraft back immediately,” he barked. McNamara’s injunction was reiterated in saltier terms by Admiral David L. McDonald, the chief of Naval Operations: “You get those fucking airplanes back on deck, and you get them back down.” The planes turned around. And the attack on the Liberty continued.

After the Israeli fighter jets had emptied their arsenal of rockets, three Israeli attack boats approached the Liberty. Two torpedoes were launched at the crippled ship, one tore a 40-foot wide hole in the hull, flooding the lower compartments, and killing more than a dozen American sailors.

TWO FORMER STATE SENATORS FOUND DEAD IN THEIR HOMES WITHIN TWO DAYS

SOURCE: CNN
Two former state senators were found dead in their homes in Arkansas and Oklahoma within a span of two days this week.

In Arkansas, the body of former Republican state Sen. Linda Collins-Smith was found Tuesday in her home in Randolph County. She'd been fatally shot and her death is being investigated as a homicide, CNN affiliate KARK reported.

Collins-Smith, who was a Democrat before switching to the Republican Party, was first elected to the state senate in 2014 and lost her party's primary last year, the affiliate said.

In Oklahoma, police found another Republican lawmaker fatally shot after receiving reports of gunfire.

Former state Sen. Jonathan Nichols' body was in his home in Norman -- about 20 miles from Oklahoma City. He served as state senator from 2000 to 2012, and later worked at the University of Oklahoma, CNN affiliate KFOR reported. Authorities confirmed his death Thursday.

TRUMP OKS ADVANCED BOMB PARTS TO BE BUILT IN SAUDI: NYT

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA

When US President Donald Trump bypassed Congress last month to approve a multibillion-dollar arms deal to Saudi Arabia, he also allowed the kingdom to develop complex precision-bomb parts, according to the New York Times.

Trump's emergency declaration allows American arms firm Raytheon to share technology with Riyadh that could allow Saudi Arabia to develop its own laser-guided bombs, the newspaper reported on Friday.

Among the components which the Saudis are now allowed to work on with the firm are the control systems and vital electronics for Raytheon's Paveway series of smart bombs. That technology was previously closely guarded by Washington.

The technology sharing is just one part of a sweeping arms package Trump bypassed Congress to push through by declaring a national emergency, citing tensions with Iran.

Outrage on Capitol Hill

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, please tell me that this is a belated April Fool's joke; because if it isn't, you may just have created the elements which can potentially turn into World War III; the current detente between Saudi Arabia and Israel could turn nasty at any second, and any attack against Iran by Saudi Arabia, could well be met with China and Russia taking sides with Iran.

Giving dictatorial kingdoms, which are self-proclaimed theocracies, is probably not ever a great idea; and I am referring, sir, to both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

This move does not augur well for peace, either in the region, or in the world.

STATES MUST EXPLAIN WHEN A CYBER ATTACK MIGHT DRAW A VIOLENT REPRISAL

Without clear explanations that affirm rules of the road, countries make it easier for conflicts to spiral out of control.

When conducting a kinetic military response to a cyberattack, it’s better to explain why and how you are doing so.

A month ago, the Israeli Defense Forces, or IDF, responded to a Hamas cyberattack with an online counter-attack against the hackers followed by an airstrike that destroyed their building in Gaza. It remains unclear whether any Hamas cyberspace operators died in the operation.

This was the first time that a military has conducted a kinetic operation directly in response to a cyberattack in real time. It occurred in the context of decades-long hostilities between Israel and Hamas, and amid the worst fighting between the parties since 2014.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The operation may have been warranted."?!?!?

Oh, really?!? It has just been made manifest... that thiskind of retaliation, has become Israel's policy for countering cyberspace operations.

Mystery surrounding death of former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith, 57, deepens as judge issues gag order on all investigation documents

Questions are mounting around the mysterious death of former Arkansas State Sen Linda Collins-Smith after a judge imposed a gag order on the release of all documents associated with the investigation.

Ken Yang, Collins-Smith's former press secretary, confirmed her death on Tuesday night and said it is being investigated as a murder.

During a very brief press conference held on Wednesday afternoon, Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell said that decomposed human remains were discovered inside the residence at 4023 Arkansas Highway 90 West belonging to Collins-Smith, but he did not say the 57-year-old former state senator is the victim.

Islamic State claims deadly attack in east Congo's Ebola zone

Islamic State claimed responsibility on Tuesday for a deadly overnight attack in an area of eastern Congo hit by an Ebola epidemic, although its account of the violence differed from local reports.

The deputy mayor of Beni in the eastern Democratic of Congo said 13 civilians were killed late on Monday in an attack by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) - a group thought to be linked to Islamic State.

“The victims were killed by bullets and others by bladed weapons,” Mayor Modeste Bakwanamaha told Reuters.

In a statement on the messaging website Telegram, Islamic State said it was behind the attack. It said it had targeted the Congolese army in Beni, killing or wounding 25 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; home grown jihadis, or the "American funded and trained" brand?!?

And why would the US government want a military presence in the Congo?!?

One brief look at the following, and then you will understand:

Google tells us that: "The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is a country with huge natural wealth. Almost every valuable natural resource can be found there, from a multitude of minerals – including diamonds, gold, copper, cobalt, cassiterite (tin ore) and coltan – to timber and oil.Dec 17, 2009"

Now tell me: how could the US government ever let the people of Congo control their own destiny, and their vast natural wealth?!?

The short answer is, it wouldn't.

How US "good guys" wiped out an Afghan family

It was 4am when Masih Ur-Rahman Mubarez’s wife Amina called, an unusually early time for their daily chat. When he picked up the phone, he could hear the panic in her voice.

The call ended with Masih saying he would call again when things had calmed. But at 9am, when he dialed his wife’s number, her phone was off. He tried again at 9.30am. Still off. Through the whole of that day and the next, he repeatedly called. But Amina’s phone remained off.

It took another day for him to the learn the truth. Relatives avoided his calls or gave vague replies to his questions, until finally his brother broke the news. “He tried to avoid telling me the whole story, but I insisted that he tell me the truth,” Masih recalled in a wavering voice. “He told me to have patience in God - no one is left.”

An airstrike on Masih’s house had killed his wife and all his seven children, alongside four young cousins. His youngest child was just four years old.

Robert Kennedy Assassination: Intimidation of a witness

This is the official LAPD audio tape of the lie detector test given to witness Sandy Serrano who claimed she saw a woman in a polka dot dress running from the Robert Kennedy assassination exclaiming "We shot him". The interviewing officer, LAPD Detective Hank Hernandez, was rumored to have intelligence connections, which would explain his having administered a lie detector test to the dictator of Venzuela just prior to doing the same to Sandy Serrano. This audio tape excerpt of the interview was obtained by Serrano's lawyers when she sued the LAPD.

I include this audio sample here to prove an historical tendency for law enforcement officials with intelligence connections to harass and intimidate witnesses. There is no confusing whatsoever that Hernandez' intent is to convince Sandy Serrano to alter her story. Hernandez spent 50 minutes trying to get Sandy to alter her story. This tape covers only a small portion of what went on.

NEW SNOWDEN LEAKED MEMOS SHOW NSA AIDED ISRAEL'S "TARGETED ASSASSINATIONS"

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

A couple of new bombshell leaked NSA documents from the Snowden archive published days ago by The Intercept confirms the extremely close level of cooperation between American and Israeli intelligence services, especially as part of the so-called "global war on terror" since 9/11. The documents reveal the NSA even assisted in an aggressive targeted assassination campaign waged by Israel inside Lebanon, especially during the 2006 Lebanon War.

According to The Intercept's report — aptly titled "Israel Hated American Ban on Sharing Intel for Assassinations, so US Made New Rules" —the newly unearthed NSA memos reveal attempts to find a legal loophole of sorts on the part of the US intelligence officials which would allow unprecedented information sharing related to a deeply controversial targeted assassination campaign by Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this.

What Israel wants is what Israel gets, in terms of US intelligence; and the targeted killings continue; no judge, no jury, no rule of law whatsoever.

And would someone please like to enlighten me, as to why Israel has zero constitution, after 71 years of existence?!?

Is by chance, or by design, so it can continue killing innocent Palestinians particularly the children, with utterly no legal mechanism for stopping this?!?

One does have to wonder.....

SUDANESE SECURITY FORCES LAUNCH DEADLY RAID ON CAMPING PROTESTERS, AT LEAST 13 KILLED – REPORTS

SOURCE: RT

Sudan’s military has used live ammunition to disperse protesters in the capital, Khartoum, according to reports. A medical association close to the protesters said that at least 13 people have been killed and dozens injured.
Sudan has been ruled by the Transitional Military Council since the ousting of authoritarian president Omar al-Bashir in April. The crackdown comes as participants in a long-running sit-in outside the army’s HQ have been demanding democratic reforms and for generals to hand over power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, how does the current Sudanese government know that the people they have assassinated, are truly criminals, without a basic Trial By Jury, one of the foundations of any real democracy?!?

the short answer is, they cannot prove this; it is just a feint, to make the existing Transitional Military Council appear to some any shred of credibility left for the Sudanese people, which they have not done.

WATCH: WOMAN STRAPPED TO CHAIR, BEATEN & PEPPER SPRAYED OVER UNPAID TRAFFIC TICKET

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT

(Support Free Thought) - Cleveland, OH — A deeply disturbing video has been released from a surveillance camera inside Cuyahoga County jail of multiple officers strapping a woman to a restraint chair before hitting her and then covering her face in pepper spray foam. The nature of the video were so horrifying that the officers involved have all been charged with crimes.

The incident happened on July 16, 2018 when an innocent woman, Chantelle Glass was brought to jail. Despite being strapped down to a chair and savagely tortured, Glass was never charged with a crime but because she had an unpaid traffic ticket, they held her in jail.

Officer Idris-Farid Clark is one of five officers charged in multiple attacks on inmates. The video of Glass’ incident was just released this week as part of a claim cleveland.com filed against the county in the Ohio Court of Claims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If THIS is how the Cleveland PD interprets the phrase "to protect and serve", the city has a huge problem on its hands.

To those who can, please vote with your feet and leave.

To those who, for economic reasons, cannot, let Mayor Frank G. Jackson, know that there is going to be a peaceful, general strike because of this, and take your kids out of school on the day when this happens.

And ANY organisation even thinking about holding some kind of symposium or conference here, please do NOT, again, letting Mayor Jackson understand why Cleveland will not be your Venue of Choice

One has to wonder if these officers were on, or getting off of SSRI prescription medication.

UK FOREIGN SECRETARY DEFENDS TORTURING JOURNALISTS, THEN SAYS WE MUST PROTECT JOURNALISTS

SOURCE: MEDIUM.COM

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has just given a speech extolling the virtues of a free media, praising the journalists who’ve been brave enough to expose the truth about wicked governments in the face of tyrannical oppression. While he was preparing to give this speech, without any indication of any self-reflection at all, he defended the torture of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

After news broke that UN Special Rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer had found that Julian Assange has been the victim of psychological torture for years, Hunt, who is gunning to become the UK’s next Prime Minister, accused him of interfering in British affairs and making “inflammatory statements”.

“This is wrong,” Hunt tweeted. “Assange chose to hide in the embassy and was always free to leave and face justice. The UN Special Rapporteur should allow British courts to make their judgements without his interference or inflammatory accusations.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Hunt, a word, please; Julian Assange was never proven wrong in his information; Assange did a great service to this country, and the world, by reporting what he did.

That, sir, is why he will most probably die in Belmarsh Prison, Briton's Gitmo; there are very powerful people in this country, and beyond, who do not want to have Assange testifying lucidly at any kind of a trial.

I hope to hell that I am wrong, but his physical presence on this planet, may well have been ordered to be truncated by those in the highest degree of power and authority, in the US and other places as well.

U.S.-LED COALITION ADMISSION OF 1,300 CIVILIAN DEATHS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA

SOURCE: AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL USA
Responding to today’s announcement by the U.S.-led Coalition that at least 1,302 civilians have been unintentionally killed by Coalition strikes in Syria and Iraq between August 2014 and the end of April 2019, Amnesty International’s Senior Crisis Response Adviser Donatella Rovera said:

“While all admissions of responsibility by the U.S.-led Coalition for civilian casualties are welcome, the Coalition remains deeply in denial about the devastating scale of the civilian casualties caused by their operations in both Iraq and Syria.

“A comprehensive investigation by Amnesty International in partnership with Airwars, launched last month, revealed that more than 1,600 civilians were killed in the Raqqa offensive alone in 2017 – meaning the acknowledged deaths are just a fraction of the total numbers killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time I see an image of a dead, or dying child, courtesy of US-enabled, or US-generated air strikes, I just want to grab that kid, just reach through the computer screen, and pull him or her out of that horrific situation, and into my arms, to at least provide some tiny bit of human compassion before they pass.

And I am about to do what some of you hate me for doing, posting some images of human beings killed, or crippled for life, courtesy of this government, which has chosen not to represent me, or many other people in this country who have an intellectual grasp of what is coming next.

Everything has a life-cycle, which I fully appreciate, having turned 70 this last year, including governments. I will not, ever, condone violence, because as a Christian Pacifist Activist, my conscience, and my heart, will not allow this.

But here are some current images of what has been done, in your name, by the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of America: warning, very graphic, and you may lose your lunch, upon seeing these.

You have been warned.

James Forrestal, the Great Patriot

The unexpected acceleration of the timetable for Forrestal to step down has been attributed to Truman’s realization that he was in the throes of some sort of emotional breakdown and therefore had to be replaced quickly. That argument, as we shall see, falls under the overall category of what we might call Forrestal-destruction propaganda. By the best evidence available, up until the day Johnson’s swearing in, Forrestal seemed to be perfectly normal. He also seemed to be quite normal only minutes before he went out the 16th floor window of the Bethesda Naval Hospital, some seven weeks later.

‘Most valued partner’: NSA fed Israel intel for targeted assassinations, leaked docs show

Frustrated by a legal ban on sharing intelligence with Israeli operatives conducting targeted assassinations against Hezbollah, the NSA crafted a loophole giving them total access even to US citizens' data, leaked documents show.

‘Grave concerns’: Assange can barely talk, moved to prison hospital, says WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been moved to the hospital wing of the Belmarsh prison in the UK, prompting Concerns about his health pending the hearing on his extradition to the US.

Assange’s health had already “significantly deteriorated” during the nearly seven years he spent inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and has continued to get worse over the seven weeks he has spent in Belmarsh, WikiLeaks said in a statement on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There have been some unconfirmed resorts, that Belmarsh personnel are heavily dosing Assange with the anti-malarial drug mefloquine hydrochloride, which is known to create delusional states for those forced to take it. FDA increases warnings for the anti-malaria drug, mefloquine hydrochloride

When it comes to geopolitics, there are few "real coincidences"; it would appear that on the marching orders from their "Deep State American Cousins", the Brits are insuring that Assange never has the chance to speak, lucidly, about how he got the information he did, to pass on to the American public.

IF you are so inclined, please pray for the guy. I sense, right now, that he may never get out of Belmarsh alive.

JOURNALIST KILLINGS, ARRESTS AND ASSAULTS CLIMB WORLDWIDE AS AUTHORITARIANISM SPREADS

SOURCE: ACTIVIST POST
By Randy Covington, University of South Carolina

Myanmar, nudged by the conscience of the world, recently released two Reuters journalists imprisoned for more than 500 days – good news in what otherwise has been a dismal period for media freedom.

The 2019 Press Freedom Index by Reporters Without Borders shows how hatred of journalists has degenerated into violence and created “an intense climate of fear” worldwide.

According to the Paris-based nonprofit, 12 reporters have been killed so far this year and 172 are in jail. In the last decade, according to the group, 702 journalists have been killed, including 63 last year.

“The number of countries regarded as safe, where journalists can work in complete security, continues to decline, while authoritarian regimes continue to tighten their grip on the media,” the report states.

ASSANGE TOO SICK TO APPEAR AT HIS OWN EXTRADITION HEARING

SOURCE: ANTI MEDIA
(ANTIWAR.COM) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was unable to attend a court hearing in London on US attempts to extradite him, with his lawyer saying he is simply too ill to make an appearance and has been relocated to his prison’s medical ward.

A statement from WikiLeaks reported Assange’s health had “significantly deteriorated” from his seven years inside the Ecuadorian embassy, and in his seven weeks in British prison, he has gotten worse and is losing a lot of weight.

The court has adjourned the extradition hearing until June 12, and has indicated that it will be held inside Belmarsh prison at that time, which may allow Assange to attend, health permitting.

Assange is facing 50 weeks in prison in Britain for hiding in the embassy. The US wants him extradited, and charges already disclosed under the Espionage Act would have him facing 170 years in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sense is that Assange is being gradually poisoned with something that will not show up at an autopsy, but is killing him, none the less.

NEPAL ON HIGH ALERT FOR GENERAL STRIKE AFTER EXPLOSIONS

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
Security forces in Nepal have been on high alert amid a general strike on Monday called by an outlawed communist group suspected in a series of explosions that killed four people and wounded seven more in the capital.

Two vehicles were burned in Makawanpur district southeast of the Nepali capital, while schools and main markets remained closed in Kathmandu, according to local media.

Normal life has been affected across the country as the Maoist splinter group, which calls itself the Communist Party of Nepal, enforced the strike.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but police said they suspected involvement of the splinter group, whose pamphlets were found in a house where one of the explosions took place on Sunday.

Police arrested 12 members of the banned outfit in connection with the blasts, according to Bishwa Raj Pokharel, a police spokesman.

The Maoist splinter group was banned in March and many of its members were arrested.

PENCE TELLS SOLDIERS: SOME OF YOU WILL DIE FOR ISRAEL

SOURCE: KURTNIMMO.BLOG

This isn’t exactly what Mike Pence told the graduating class of West Point on Saturday. He said it’s “a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for America at some point in your life,” which means, of course, people will die, not simply soldiers but countless innocent others.

Pence’s “battlefield for America” is a brazen lie. America has but one reason to wage wars in the Middle East—and that reason is Israel.

The trillion dollar wars past, present, and future in the Middle East—in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, and Iran—do not in any way benefit the US, and instead have made America an international outlaw.

CHINA'S AUTOMATED CENSORS CRANK UP AS TIANANMEN SQUARE 30TH ANNIVERSARY NEARS

It's the most sensitive day of the year for China's internet, the anniversary of the bloody June 4 crackdown on pro-democracy protests at Tiananmen Square, and with under two weeks to go, China's robot censors are working overtime.

Censors at Chinese internet companies said tools to detect and block content related to the 1989 crackdown have reached unprecedented levels of accuracy, aided by machine learning and voice and image recognition.

"We sometimes say that the artificial intelligence is a scalpel, and a human is a machete," one content screening employee at Beijing Bytedance said, who asked not to be identified because they are not authorised to speak to media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't think for a second that those in American government wouldn't just love to have this ability also, to steer clear, informationally, of those foul-ups, bleeps, and geopolitical blunders, which have caused so much pain around the world, and also at home.

VIDEO SHOWS COPS RESPOND TO HOSTAGE SITUATION BY KILLING THE HOSTAGE—NO ONE FIRED

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Los Angeles, CA — Los Angeles police previously released graphic body camera footage, showing officers opening fire on a man armed with a knife who’d taken a 49-year-old woman hostage. In the shooting, police killed both the man with the knife, and the innocent hostage. Now, the department is claiming that the officers who opened fire on the innocent women are being “disciplined.” However, they will face no criminal charges and will likely not even be fired.

On Tuesday, a civilian oversight panel ruled that two of the three cops who responded to the scene that day violated department policy on the use of deadly force. It will now be up to LAPD Chief Michel Moore to decide exactly what “discipline” measures he will take with the officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to tell you; Mike and I are very grateful, not to be living in Greater LA, where we used to live many, many years ago.

CIA Whistleblower: Assange Is Going To Get Railroaded By "Hanging" Judge

A former CIA analyst-turned-whistleblower says that an extradited Julian Assange would have no chance of a fair trial in front of a federal judge who "reserves every national security case for herself."

Judge Leonie Brinkema, Julian Assange
John Kiriakou, who was sentenced to 30 months in prison by Eastern District of Virginia Judge Leonie Brinkema for telling ABC News about CIA waterboarding, told Russian state-sponsored RT "They are going to try to make an example of Julian," adding "He’s been charged in the Eastern District of Virginia. His judge was also my judge and ex-Snowden’s judge and [CIA whistleblower] Jeffry Sterling’s judge who reserves every national security case for herself."

"She is a hanging judge. She will not give him a fair trial. It’s impossible for Julian to receive a fair trial in the Eastern District of Virginia," addid Kiriakou.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly worry that he will not be allowed to live before his trial; anyone remember how Whitey Bulger was bludgeoned to death, in prison?!?

There are a whole lot of people, wanting him dead, and they would not hesitate have an assassination ordered, if they felt what he may have to say at a trial, would compromise their wealth and their power.

HEAD OF REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS SAYS ISRAEL SHOT JOURNALISTS INTENTIONALLY

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
The director-general of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) said yesterday that the Israeli army had deliberately targeted journalists in the occupied Gaza Strip.

Christophe Deloire was speaking to the Jerusalem Post, having received the Dan David Prize in Tel Aviv on behalf of the international press freedoms watchdog.

“It is a war crime to target journalists because they are journalists,” Deloire told the paper. “When Israel shot those journalists [during the Great Return March protests], it was intentional.”

“The journalists could be clearly identified as journalists, with cameras and jackets and it could not be just by chance,” he added.

Referring to the United Nations’ Commission of Inquiry into the Gaza protests, Deloire pointed out that the report “confirmed what we already considered a fact”.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel claims its troops didn't kill paraplegic Palestinian

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli army on Friday closed a criminal investigation into the death of a paraplegic Palestinian man shot while demonstrating along Gaza's border with Israel in 2017, saying the probe found "no evidence" that its soldiers fired the fatal bullet.

The army described the protest in which 29-year-old Ibrahim Abu Thraya was killed as a "violent riot," and said troops responded by opening fire toward the lower body parts of "main instigators."

As part of its investigation, the military said it tried to obtain the bullet that killed Abu Thraya, but Palestinian authorities denied its request.

Witnesses at the time said no gunfire came from the Palestinian side. Palestinians and human rights groups claimed he was shot by an Israeli sniper

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! shooting a paraplegic Palestinian in the head; that must REALLY make the IDF feel infinitely more butch.

And these investigations are only to whitewash the IDF's crimes against Palestinians.

US Gov't Now Openly Admits Pentagon Asks for Money to Directly Fund Terrorists

Source: Matt Agorist @ The Free Thought Project

(Support Free Thought) - For the last several decades, the US government has openly funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world to forward an agenda of destabilization and proxy war. It is not a secret, nor a conspiracy theory—America arms bad guys. The situation has gotten so overtly corrupt that the government just admitted the Pentagon asked Congress for funding to reimburse terrorists for their transportation and other expenses. Seriously.

“The Defense Department requested fiscal 2020 funding to support certain reconciliation activities, including logistic support for members of the Taliban and, in March 2019, they sent a notification letter to the Committee on using fiscal year 2019 funds for similar activities,” a spokesman for House Appropriations subcommittee on Defense Chairman Peter J. Visclosky (D-Ind.) told Roll Call.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great; how swell!!

Seriously; if the US government is funding terrorists, to achieve particular geopolitical outcomes, our government stinks, and it is high time to fire them (peacefully), by handing them their hats, come the next election day.

The only problem with that, is that computers make election fraud so easy, that many times, particularly close races can be "turned" in one or another candidates' favor.

And if you have not yet seen the video, "Hacking Democracy", with all the brouhaha going on about the 2020 election cycle, you need to see this now.

Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks

Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks

Source: Mint Press

NEW YORK — For nearly two decades, one of the most overlooked and little known arrests made in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks was that of the so-called “High Fivers,” or the “Dancing Israelis.” However, new information released by the FBI on May 7 has brought fresh scrutiny to the possibility that the “Dancing Israelis,” at least two of whom were known Mossad operatives, had prior knowledge of the attacks on the World Trade Center.

The US accidentally killed more than a dozen Afghan policemen in an airstrike after a 'miscommunication'

A US airstrike conducted Thursday in Afghanistan killed more than a dozen local policemen and wounded just as many.

When a firefight broke out between the Taliban and the local police force after the latter attempted to take down a Taliban flag in southern Helmand province, Afghan forces on the ground called in an airstrike, telling the US that the area was clear of friendlies, Stars and Stripes reported, citing Resolute Support.

Unfortunately, they were not, and a tragic accident resulted," the NATO mission in Afghanistan explained in its statement. "We're examining the miscommunication to ensure it is not repeated. We regret this tragic loss of life of our partners and are committed to improvement every day with every mission."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a military which is touted to Americans as "the best on the planet", why the hell do incidents like this keep occurring in Afghanistan?!?

MEXICAN JOURNALIST UNDER GOVERNMENT PROTECTION PLAN SHOT DEAD

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA

Blood-soaked body of Francisco Romero, fifth journalist to be killed this year, was found on a pavement in his hometown.

A Mexican journalist enrolled in a federal protection programme has been shot dead, the fifth reporter to be killed this year in one of the most dangerous countries for the press.

The blood-soaked body of crime reporter Francisco Romero was found on a pavement outside a nightclub in his hometown of Playa del Carmen along Mexico's Caribbean coast on Thursday, authorities said.

Romero ran a Facebook-based news site called "Ocurrio Aqui" (It Happened Here) that covers local politics and crime and had more than 17,000 followers. He also worked for one of the state's leading newspapers, Quintana Roo Hoy.

The state prosecutor's office opened a homicide investigation, saying Romero had filed a complaint on April 12 over threats he had received. The source of those threats was not specified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please take Mexico off your list for any vacation, or convention outings; this place can be hazardous to one's health, even if you are an innocent, with no cartel affiliations\ whatsoever.

THE STRANGE AND STILL UNSOLVED CASE OF GEORGE WALLACE

On this day in 1972, presidential candidate George Wallace was shot by an ultra-mobile “lone nut” who apparently had limitless amounts of cash.

No one talks about the attempted assassination of George Wallace.

First of all, he survived. Second, he was not a terribly sympathetic figure.

He was running against Richard Nixon and was at least the third candidate to run against him who happened to be shot.

The others of course were John Kennedy who beat him and Robert Kennedy who was on the road to doing the same. Martin Luther King a political opponent of Nixon’s also ended up being shot by a strange “loner” around the same time.

The Re-Opening Of The Swedish Assange Case Should Be Welcomed

Authored by Craig Murray,

That the Swedish investigation into the rape allegation against Julian Assange is being re-opened is something that ought to be welcomed. The alternative would be for this accusation to hang unresolved over Julian’s head forever. The Swedish prosecutors now need finally, as my father used to say, either to piss or get off the pot. They need to decide whether there is sufficient evidence to charge or not.

There is no reason for delay. The Swedish police have had seven years to investigate this case and all the evidence has been gathered and all statements taken – the last being the interview of Julian Assange in the Ecuadorean Embassy in 2017. Hopefully to review the evidence and decide whether to charge will not now be a lengthy procedure. It is worth noting, contrary to much misreporting, Julian Assange has never been charged with anything in Sweden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Assange is to leave the British prison in which he is now languishing, having him be in a Swedish courtroom may be profoundly less hazardous to his health; in an American jail, there is always, it appears, to be room for political assassinations.

If you don't believe me, just think of the murder of Whitey Bulger in a Federal jail last year.

THE COMPLETE MERCENARY: How Erik Prince Used the Rise of Trump to Make an Improbable Comeback

WHEN ERIK PRINCE arrived at the Four Seasons resort in the Seychelles in January 2017 for his now-famous meetings with a Russian banker and UAE ruler Mohammed bin Zayed, he was in the middle of an unexpected comeback. The election of Donald Trump had given the disgraced Blackwater founder a new opportunity to prove himself. After years of trying and failing to peddle a sweeping vision of mercenary warfare around the world, Erik Prince was back in the game.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erik Prince is a very interesting character; but we need to ask; is this the face of the American military we want the world to see; mercs, with no real loyalty or care, about who they are hired to kill, as long as they get paid?!?

I would like to hope not.

I would very much like to suggest that President Trump establish a "Department of Peace", to find ways, other than wars, regime changes, and coups, to achieve the country's geopolitical goals without anyone firing a single shot.

The degree to which the practice of wars, informs and dictates American foreign policy, is utterly terrifying to me.

And to put it into perspective, there is no American teenager, aged 17 or 18, who has not seen that the US government appears to be, and has been, in a perpetual state of war, even the abysmally failing wars, like Afghanistan and Yemen.

Yes, I get it, peace through strength and commerce.

But these wars are dead-ending both financial and human capital, and as a government imminently pregnant with an exploding Federal debt, which is around $22 trillion dollars (that we know of), it would seem to make sense for the Federal Government to quit its addiction to wars, and perhaps, even go cold-turkey, should there be no real danger to Americans being caused in that war (like Yemen).

The Wheels Of Real Justice Are In Motion Now: Kunstler Fears The "Desperate Resistance" Next Move...

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.

"Impeachment is too good for him,” Nancy Pelosi declared of the president on Thursday after “his lapdog” - as she styled Attorney General William Barr - refused to be whipped by grandstanding Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee. What did Madam Speaker have in mind then? Dragging Mr. Trump behind a Chevy Tahoe over four miles of broken light bulbs? Staking him onto a nest of fire ants? How about a beheading at the capable hands of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN)?

Mr. Barr’s stolid demeanor during the Wednesday session was a refreshing reminder of what it means to be not insane in the long-running lunatic degeneration of national politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do worry about what the Left will be willing to do, to prevent a real route in 2020.

Mike and I are very blessed to be on Oahu, where even if someone disagrees with you politically, they will listen, and be at least somewhat respectful.

Blame Palestinians for GazaIsrael is the perpetual victim

If you have read a recent New York Times op-ed entitled “Care about Gaza? Blame Hamas” written by none other than the White House “special representative for international negotiations” Jason Greenblatt you would understand that the misery being experienced by Palestinians in Gaza is all their own fault. Greenblatt, who is Jewish of the Orthodox persuasion, just happens to be a strong supporter of Israel’s settlements, which he claims are “not an obstacle to peace.” He is very upset because some naysayers are actually putting some of the blame for the human catastrophe in Gaza on Israel, which we Americans all know is our best friend in the whole world and our most loyal ally. If that were not so, the New York Times and those fine people in Congress and the White House would surely inform us otherwise. And anyway, what are a few lies and war crimes between friends?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Kushner and Greenblatt are pathologically incapable of realizing, (or just flat don't want to), is that for the Palestinians, this is not an issue about money; it is an issue of homeland, where generations of their ancestors once lived.

And money... even as attractively as I am sure the White House and Tel Aviv are spinning this proposal...is no compensation for Palestinians who cannot forget their history, or their homelands.

Protesters are run over by Maduro's armored vehicles as gunfire breaks out, sending civilians running for cover after Juan Guaido calls for military uprising, sparking clashes with pro-regime troops 

Juan Guaido called for uprising against Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday from the La Carlota airbase in Caracas
Guaido made the announcement surrounded by troops who then began setting up a defensive perimeter
Maduro's forces fired tear gas before a heavy exchange of gunfire, with protesters caught in the middle
US, which backs Guaido, said President was aware while Putin, backing Maduro, was in talks with top officials.

Video footage has emerged showing President Nicolas Maduro's troops running over anti-government protesters during clashes with the Venezuelan National Guard.

Armoured vehicles operated by soldiers loyal to the besieged president were seen ploughing into demonstrators in front of La Carlota base in Caracas.

Heavy gunfire crackled through the Venezuelan capital on Tuesday after opposition leader Juan Guaido called for a military uprising to oust President Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember, as all of the presstitutes have been given their orders to present this to the public as a "completely indigenous protest", when it has all the earmarks of a US-led psych-ops.

Juan Guaido, Designated US puppet in Venezuela
The Making of Juan Guaido: how the US "Regime change" Laboratory created Venezuela coup leader

The article goes on to state: "Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaidó. Only a few months ago, the 35-year-old was an obscure character in a politically marginal far-right group closely associated with gruesome acts of street violence. Even in his own party, Guaidó had been a mid-level figure in the opposition-dominated National Assembly, which is now held under contempt according to Venezuela’s constitution.

But after a single phone call from US Vice President Mike Pence, Guaidó proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela. Anointed as the leader of his country by Washington, a previously unknown political bottom dweller was vaulted onto the international stage as the US-selected leader of the nation with the world’s largest oil reserves."

Echoing the Washington consensus, the New York Times editorial board hailed Guaidó as a “credible rival” to Maduro with a “refreshing style and vision of taking the country forward.” The Bloomberg News editorial board applauded him for seeking “restoration of democracy” and the Wall Street Journal declared him “a new democratic leader.” Meanwhile, Canada, numerous European nations, Israel, and the bloc of right-wing Latin American governments known as the Lima Group recognized Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela"

So, that is what we have here in Guaido; a guy schooled in "regime change", just so those in the bowels of DC ultimately control Venezuela's oil, and the method of payment for that oil, if in fact, this "Cu Cu KaCHOO" is successful.

But please remember the following; Russia has troops on the ground in Venezuela; the US came with too little too late, to prevent them from being there, at Maduro's invitation. So one has to wonder, just what their orders are?!? To keep Maduro and his family safe at all costs, and at all times??!?

One of DC's "supremely self-reinventing lower-octave bottom feeders", John Bolton, has made his statement today, that the Venezuelan people, and its military, "had" to back Guaido, and by doing that, will preserve the Venezuelan Constitution; Bollix and Codswallop, I say!!

This is about the money, and about the oil, in one of the world's most sublimely gifted countries when it comes to reserves. As Google states, "The proven oil reserves in Venezuela are recognized as the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels (4.72×1010 m3) as of 1 January 2014."

Remember how Victoria Nuland bragged about how much money the US spent to get "regime change" in Ukraine?!? United States spent 5 billion dollars to achieve "Regime Change" in Ukraine which, ultimately, proved a stupid thing for it to have done, given the performance of their "anointed Savoir", Poroshenko, in the last election, where he got professionally "creamed" by a Comedian, who just won the Ukrainian election by a huge majority.Volodymyr Zelenskiy wins Ukrainian election by a landslide

How much do you think the US government is willing to spend on "regime change" in Venezuela, to get its hands around that oil?!? Many, many more billions, friends; while our Vets sleep rough in our streets, and US infrastructure is crumbling around us?

Remember; American political system is solely driven by its members' lust for money, to be made off the backs of American working people, or conquering other countries; the situation unfolding in Venezuela proves the truth of that last statement.

And a little companion piece to this last bit, also from blacklistednews.com:

WITH GUN BAN NOT WORKING, POLITICIANS IN BRITAIN NOW WANT TO BAN KNIVES NATIONWIDE

If ever we needed proof of the expression that "guns don’t kill people, people kill people" look no further than Britain, where families may have to start practicing cutting their steak and bread at dinner with a spoon. This is, of course, because Britain's politicians have now made the absurdly ridiculous move to call for the banning of what Reason magazine called "the most useful tool ever invented" - the knife.

Reason reported this morning that British politicians have "declared war on knives" and are moving swiftly to try and ban them, since gun laws aren't working to help stop crime altogether:

Having failed to disarm criminals with gun controls that they defy, British politicians are now turning their attention to implementing something new and different: knife control. Because criminals will be much more respectful of knife laws than of those targeted at firearms, I guess.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am thoroughly reminded of Ron White's line about "You can't fix stupid", which is the way the British Government is trying to handle this issue.

So, soon in the UK, will Chefs' carving knives have to come with a permit?!?

One might imagine so.

Will there be "instructional videos on "how to carve meat with a plastic spoon?!? One might imagine that as well.

And will grocery stores only be allowed to send meat ground, even lamb chops and spare ribs?!?

Right now, in the UK, I wouldn't bet against it.

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan, has been such an horrendous disappointment to the British people, that if he stands again for election in this capacity, I would almost bet on a Conservative candidate trouncing on him, and winning handily.

BOEING CHANGES ITS STORY, ADMITS 'SOFTWARE GLITCH' DISABLED CRITICAL ALERTS ON 737 MAX

In a clarification that only created more confusion, Boeing said Monday that an alert intended to notify pilots when the plane might be receiving erroneous data from one of the 737 MAX 8's 'angle of attack' sensors wasn't disabled intentionally, as WSJ reported on Sunday, but that the feature had been disabled because of a previously undisclosed software glitch.

What's confusing is that Boeing had confirmed WSJ's story that the aerospace company had neglected to tell the FAA and Southwest, the biggest customer for the 737 MAX 8, that the alert feature had been disabled because it had been made a new 'optional' safety feature. The alerts would have warned pilots that the plane's MCAS system might be about to misfire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This admission may well put Boeing into bankruptcy, for their software engineers to make such a completely bone-headed decision, and have it be completely supported by upper management.

Of course, the monied rarely eat their own, so when this issue goes to trial, it will probably result in a " money junkie slap on the wrist" for their chief executives.

REDUCTION OF GAZA FISHING ZONE AN 'ILLEGAL COLLECTIVE PUNISHMENT'

A decision by the Israeli military to scale down the permitted fishing zone in the besieged Gaza Strip comes as "no surprise" to the enclave's 4,000 fishermen.

"The decision did not come as a surprise. The occupation always backs down from agreements that affect fishermen in the strip," Zakaria Bakr, head of Gaza's fishermen's union, told Al Jazeera.

Citing an alleged rocket attack, the Israeli army said on Tuesday fishing in Gaza would only be permitted up to six nautical miles (11km) until further notice.

The move came after Israel extended the zone to a maximum of 15 nautical miles on April 1 as part of an Egypt-brokered ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas, the group that governs the Gaza Strip.

The decision was in response to a rocket fired by the Islamic Jihad group late on Monday, the Israeli army said in a statement on Tuesday, an allegation the Palestinian group denies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel doesn't want to be seen as a killer of Palestinians, one by one, as the optics of such an act would be frightful; but having Palestinians slowly starving in Gaza, quietly, because of this restriction?!?

Now, THAT is something the Knesset can really get behind!!!!!

BOLTON CALLS ON VENEZUELAN MILITARY TO ‘PROTECT THE CONSTITUTION’ BY BACKING GUAIDO COUP ATTEMPT

US National Security Advisor John Bolton called on Venezuela’s military to side with Washington protégé Juan Guaido, after the opposition leader declared a military coup in Caracas on Tuesday.
Bolton, one of the leading US figures in the operation to topple the Venezuelan government, called on Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino to side with Guaido, claiming this would protect Venezuela’s constitution.

.@vladimirpadrino: The FANB must protect the Constitution and the Venezuelan people. It should stand by the National Assembly and the legitimate institutions against the usurpation of democracy. The United States stands with the people of Venezuela.

— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) April 30, 2019
Padrino earlier rejected Guaido as a traitor and said on Twitter that the national armed forces (FANB) were loyal to the legitimate President Nicolas Maduro.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The whole world knows what the US wants out of this; massive access to Venezuela's oil reserves, particularly those found in the Orinoco coastal planes.Venezuelan oil reserves in the Orinoco peninsula

And Mr. Bolton, just stop talking, please; your opening your mouth and attempting to justify this coup, is so rottenly hypocritical, that it is making a huge number of Americans collectively nauseous, right before breakfast.

This is NOT about protecting the Venezuela Constitution, and you know it damned well.

It is about access to, control of, and making sure that Venezuela's oil reserves are only sold in American dollars.

Do you really think that you can continue to lie to the American people, and get away with it, after Bush's debacle on "Saddam's nuclear weapons of mass destruction"?!??

Wrong is what most of thinking people in this country understand you to be, on nearly every foreign policy decision you make; but wrong, AND colossally stupid at the same time, sir?

THAT... is a bridge too far, Mr. Bolton.

And BTW, just what are the orders of the Russian troops, already in Venezuela?!?Perhaps, to protect President Maduro from harm at all times?!?

You, sir, have, almost single-handedly, have created a trap for American military either already in Venezuela, or positioned to go, at a moment's
notice; this will be a war of attrition in an environment where the American military historically doesn't do anywhere near as well as they do in a desert environment.

Congratulations, for creating the 21st century's Vietnam, Mr. Bolton; you must be, as always, amply proud of yourself for these decisions, leading the US to the brink of war in Venezuela, and potentially Russia.

'VERY FAST TO SHOOT': 911 CALL AFTER OFFICER AMBER GUYGER KILLED BOTHAM JEAN HAS BEEN LEAKED

Dallas, TX — It has been months since off-duty Dallas police officer Amber Guyger walked into the apartment of Botham Jean and killed him. Since then, police have refused to release any pertinent details in regards to the case, including the 911 call made by Guyger after she killed Jean. However, WFAA news was somehow able to obtain a copy of that recording and it is now public.

For the first time, the entire 911 call has been published online. Up until now, only police have had access to it. Not even Jean’s family has been allowed to hear it.

As TFTP reported, Amber Guyger was off duty but still in uniform when she entered Botham Jean’s apartment and shot him in cold blood. She claims she accidentally went into the wrong apartment and thought she saw an intruder. However, the attorney for the Jean family — after listening to the 911 recording — pointed out how fast she shot Jean after entering, claiming she didn’t have time to even question the “intruder.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Being off-duty did not bar this officer from shooting an innocent man here, and not even in her own apartment; my sympathies are with Botham Jean's families, and I hope that the individual judgement goes to that family, and that the police department gets hammered for a very large settlement, even though money can never compensate for losing a loved one.

Because until police departments all over this country start training their officers in "reasonable restraint", incidents like this are going to continue to occur.

Here on Oahu, we are blessed that our police are reasonable and polite, and do not frequently make this kind of horrific blunder, which resolves in death.

THE SECRET HISTORY OF AMERICA’S DEFEAT IN SYRIA

When the war in Syria was recently declared decisively over, there were few correspondents or witnesses to turn to for a credible look at exactly what happened during eight years of conflict. The questions were many, but I could count on one hand those worth putting them to. Among these was Sharmine Narwani, whose work I have long counted distinctly thorough and honest amid coverage that — in her view as well as mine — hit a new low by way of collapsed professional standards and abandoned ethics. Narwani’s pieces, written for a variety of publications, consistently reflect her hard work on the ground — work nearly no one else did. She is eyes wide open and beholden to no national interest or media slant.

You returned from Syria just last week — this after going in several times last year. The intervening months were important, given the war has just ended. What have you been seeing on the ground?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me very respectful about this woman's work, and in a war zone.

SUSPECTED UAE SPY WITH POSSIBLE TIES TO KHASHOGGI CASE FOUND DEAD IN TURKISH PRISON

One of two Emirati men detained in Turkey on suspicion of both spying and having possible ties to the Jamal Khashoggi embassy murder case has reportedly taken his own life in prison, according to government and media sources.
The man was arrested by Turkish authorities 10 days ago and was later formally charged with “military and political” and “international espionage.” He was found dead having apparently hanged himself in his cell in Silivri prison on the outskirts of Istanbul on Sunday.

Turkish authorities are now launching an investigation into the suspicious circumstances of the man’s death as he was being detained in solitary confinement.

The two men claimed they were Palestinian nationals but admitted to working on behalf of UAE intelligence, reports Al Jazeera. One of the two alleged UAE spies reportedly arrived in Turkey just two days after Khashoggi’s murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How "convenient" for Saudi Arabia, that this one "loose end" to the Kashoggi case, has been "neutralized".

The Buried Maidan Massacre And Its Misrepresentation By The West

Authored by Ivan Katchanovski via ConsortiumNews.com,

The new Ukrainian government is faced with reopening an inquiry into evidence of an organized mass killing in Kiev that Poroshenko stonewalled...

Police in Hrushevsky Street, Kiev, Feb. 12, 2014. (Wikimedia)

Five years ago, the Maidan massacre in Kiev, Ukraine, of Feb. 18-20, 2014, was a watershed event, not only for the politics and history of Ukraine but also for world politics generally. This mass killing in downtown Kyiv set the stage for the violent overthrow of the pro-Russian government in Ukraine and a new Cold War between Washington and Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this comes out in the open, there are three things the Ukrainian government, and people, will take away; first, that then-President Barak Obama was key to the putsch moving successfully in installing Poroshenko President admitted on CNN, that the US government was behind the Kiev coup; 2nd, that Victoria Nuland bragged about having spent 5 billion on this regime change United States spent $5 billion on regime change in Ukraine; and thirdly, to never, ever trust the US government on anything it says.

The Ukrainians have learned a very painful lesson on this, and I hope that the new President, Volodymyr Zelensky, understands this reality as well. And whatever the US government wants him to do, will have a "price tag" on it.

The Fountain Murders:

Oliver Lee is the most underrated gunman of The Old West!

February 1, 1896
Albert Jennings Fountain is agitated. It’s cold and windy, and his young son is coming down with a cold. Fountain is anxious to get the eight year old home to his mother, but his discomfort has more to do with three suspicious horseback riders who have been tailing him for some time.

These are not the first riders to trail him on this ride. Some 40 miles from Las Cruces, New Mexico, Fountain encountered the mail carrier on the way to Tularosa. Reining up, the postman had pulled alongside, and Fountain asked him, while pointing off in the distance: “Do you know who those horsemen are?”

The Assassination of Pat Garrett

Once and for all, who did it and why?

For the 57-year-old lawman, his was an undignified death. Pat Garrett was urinating on the side of the road to Las Cruces, New Mexico, about four miles east of town. As he was so occupied, somebody hidden about 50 feet behind him put a Winchester bullet in the back of his head.

On February 29, 1908, Garrett was dead. The man who had headed down the legends trail nearly 30 years before when he killed Billy the Kid, murdered.

It was a conspiracy. A contract murder. An organized crime hit.

This is what we know........

CELL TOWER REMOVED FROM SCHOOL AFTER MULTIPLE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER

Ripon, CA — As 5G technology begins to roll out across the country, it is being met by a massive wave of resistance over concerns that it can cause health problems. While 5G is still relatively new, concerns over 4G and older technology still persist as well. A school in California has taken things to the next level and removed a cell tower from their campus after several students and teachers were diagnosed with cancer.

Since 2016, four students and three teachers have been diagnosed with different forms of cancer at Ripon Elementary. Also, two smaller children — too young to attend school — who live near the school tower, have been treated for a malignant tumor and leukemia, and a 22-year-old former student has recently undergone surgery for a brain tumor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not one kid, nor one teacher, should have become ill with cancer from the Sprint Tower here; and let this be a cautionary tale to school districts throughout the country; don't allow a cell tower to be raised on any of your campuses.

The probability of a cascade of lawsuits, both against School Districts which approved these sites, and the mobile carriers who installed dishes on these sites, may ramp up horrifically from here.
