A Bad Copyright Bill Moves Forward With No Serious Understanding of Its Dangers

By Katharine Trendacosta

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted on the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act, aka the CASE Act. This was without any hearings for experts to explain the huge flaws in the bill as it’s currently written. And flaws there are.

During the vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee, it was once again stressed that the CASE Act—which would turn the Copyright Office into a copyright traffic court—created a “voluntary” system. “Voluntary” does not accurately describe the regime of the CASE Act...

The 99th Congress ‘Screwed’ Us By Giving Vaccine Makers Legal Exemptions From Product Liability Regarding Vaccines: That Has To Stop NOW

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Ever since the 99th U.S. Congress caved to Big Pharma—under DURESS—in the 1980s with passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34), the U.S. CDC and FDA have been committing healthcare and medical science FRAUD regarding vaccines...

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.

Five Years on from Malaysian Airlines MH17 Destruction: A Clear Lack of Evidence that Moscow Was Behind It

Five years ago, on 17 July 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17) was shot down approximately 30 miles from the Ukrainian-Russian border, while fighting raged below between Western-supported groups and “Moscow-backed separatists”.

During late afternoon local time 298 people, including crew members, lost their lives when the scheduled passenger aircraft was blown out of the sky. In the following time, some of the dead were found scattered in the surrounding sunflower fields.

Many reports later emanated from Western media, without necessary supporting evidence, claiming that “Russian-sponsored militants” were responsible for firing a Buk surface-to-air missile at the plane. Buk missile systems are in fact under possession of both Moscow and Kiev.

Almost 200 of those killed were of Dutch nationality – with the aircraft itself, a 64 metre long Boeing 777-200ER, having intended to reach Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital, after departing Amsterdam about three hours before.

Money Laundering Fines Worth Billions Help Bankers Avoid Prosecution and Unpleasant Labels

By Lubomir Tassev

The recent seizure of a cargo ship owned by JP Morgan, a vessel loaded with 20 tons of cocaine according to latest accounts, highlighted the risks of banks’ involvement in illicit activities, inadvertent or otherwise. And although U.S. authorities released the MSC Gayane after the owner, JP Morgan’s asset management arm, and the operator, Mediterranean Shipping Company, paid a $50M in cash and surety bond, the stain remains and this is not the only stain. Money laundering for drug cartels and moving funds for terrorists, arms dealers and dictatorial regimes are among the sins banks have accumulated through the years. However, court settlements and billions of dollars in fines often help major financial institutions avoid prosecution, conviction, and labels like ‘Drugbanks.’...

Trump’s Fight With The Fed Over Interest Rates Is A Scripted Farce

Op-Ed by Brandon Smith

There is a very bizarre narrative being circulated in the mainstream economic media and it goes a little something like this:

“The Federal Reserve has capitulated on liquidity tightening yet the US economy is ‘stronger than ever’, isn’t that weird?”

There are a couple things wrong with this statement. First, the Fed has not yet capitulated on its tightening policy. In fact, we have been hearing since last November from the mainstream media and some alternative media that the Fed was going to lower its Fed Funds Rate and end monthly balance sheet cuts at “any moment”, yet several months later it still has not happened...

WHAT HAPPENED TO FLIGHT TWA 800?

No doubt that the plane was taken out by a missile, but the media changed that to an “unexplained” explosion of one of the fuel tanks.

Air traffic controllers saw it happen on their radar screens. Thousands of people saw it and over 100 eye witnesses – including pilots, former military people, fishermen – came forward.

The FBI started a legitimate investigation.

Then the CIA got involved…and the story changed radically.

The FBI fell in the line and the New York Times printed whatever the CIA told them to print.

We all deserve an investigation into BBC Panorama’s propaganda 

The British public were subjected to an hour of anti-Palestine propaganda by the BBC last week when it aired a Panorama programme on the “anti-Semitism” row within the Labour Party. The public service broadcaster appeared to be doing very little public service when it unleased what was, by any reasonable assessment, a media broadside taken straight from the disinformation rule book.

Received by the mainstream media as though it were the final say on the anti-Semitism row that has rocked the Labour Party since Jeremy Corbyn became leader in 2015, the public have been duped into submitting to the dominant narrative. The political party that was born out of a desire to fight inequality and headed now by a leader whose record of fighting for social justice and equality is second to none is, we are led to believe, institutionally anti-Semitic.

TO ATTACK JULIAN ASSANGE, CNN TWISTS EMBASSY SURVEILLANCE RECORDS THAT WERE FIRST COVERED BY SPANISH NEWSPAPER

Spanish newspaper EL PAÍS reported on July 9 that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was spied on by a Spanish private defense and security firm called Undercover Global S.L., when he lived in the Ecuador embassy in the United Kingdom.

The report was based on “documents, video, and audio material” that was “used in an extortion attempt against Assange by several individuals.” In May, Spanish police arrested journalist José Martín Santos, who had a record of fraud, and a computer programmer for their alleged involvement in an “attempt to make €3 million from the sale of private material.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These trumped up charges are very ridiculous; they were simply items that embarrassed the Democrats, and were most likely coming from Seth Rich., who was very concerned about the tenor - and the direction - the Democratic party was taking, to attempt to insure victory in 2016, and that there was no other outcome possible.

Mueller, Dems Scramble as Russiagate Falls Apart

by Ray McGovern Posted on July 17, 2019

Friday’s surprising report that Robert Mueller had successfully sought an extra week to prepare for his House testimony on Russiagate (now set for July 24) must have come as scary news to those of his fans who can put two and two together. Over the past few weeks, it has become clearer that each of the two frayed findings of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election has now come apart at the seams.

How to Avoid Eating Crow

As the truth seeps out, there will be plenty of crow to go around. To avoid eating it, the Democrats on the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, the stenographers who pass for journalists at the Times and Post, and the “Mueller team” will need all the time they can muster to come up with imaginative responses to two recent bombshell revelations from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These revelations are also going to hit hard, against current Democratic contenders for the white House.

Pentagon Chief’s Confirmation Hearing Avoids Any Questions About Wars

As the nominee for Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper is set to inherit just a whole slew of US wars around the world. His long hearing at the Senate Armed Services Committee, however, didn’t spend a lot of time talking about wars.

Or indeed any time. Esper was faced with questions about his history as a lobbyist for a major arms maker, and how that was going to fit in to his potential new job. He was asked exactly zero questions about ongoing wars.

Esper assured Senators that he sees “the big picture,” and his focus was heavily on the need for the Senate to spend vastly more on weaponry for the US military, which would be his job as Defense Secretary, and largely just a scaled up version of his lobbying past.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No one in Congress wants to talk about these endless wars, which President Trump has insisted are critical for the survival of this country, and the reality here, is that NO ONE in Congress wants to talk about these wars, as a way to skip responsibility for them.

New CNN Assange Smear Piece Is Amazingly Dishonest, Even For CNN

The article, titled "Exclusive: Security reports reveal how Assange turned an embassy into a command post for election meddling," admits that it exists for the sole purpose of tarnishing Assange's reputation when it reports, with no evidence whatsoever, that while at the Ecuadorian embassy Assange once "smeared feces on the walls out of anger." Not "reportedly." Not "the Ecuadorian government claims." CNN reported it as a fact, as an event that is known to have happened. This is journalistic malpractice, and it isn't an accident.

Whenever you see any "news" report citing this claim, you are witnessing a standard smear tactic of the plutocratic media. Whenever you see them citing this claim as a concrete, verified fact, you are witnessing an especially aggressive and deliberate psyop.

US, Iran Send Conflicting Signals on Possible Missile Talks

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has claimed that Iran has signaled a willingness to negotiate on the matter of ballistic missiles. Other US officials aren’t so sure, and Iranian officials are also telling conflicting stories on the matter.

“Iran’s missiles are absolutely and under no condition negotiable with anyone or any country,” insisted Alireza Miryousefi, the spokesman for Iran’s UN Mission. That is certainly the position Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has long taken.

Yet Pompeo’s belief that talks are possible didn’t come out of thin air. Rather, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif suggested in the US was willing to cut off arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Iran’s missiles might also be up for negotiation.

That’s probably a non-starter,with President Trump so obsessed with growing arms sales, but does point to a grand bargain potentially being on the table, if both sides want it. The problem is, neither side is being very clear if they want it or not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any possibility of a real deal, will most likely be scotched by Pompeo and Bolton, who both would rather see the US at war with Iran for Israel, than any move toward accommodation and threat-reduction.

And there is is something both gentlemen are really good at not seeing; this is The "Russian Option", and made very clear through the announcement of one top Russian official a couple of weeks ago: Zamir Kabulov: the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, has said that Iran will not be alone, if the US attacks it.

The Dollar, Not Crypto, Is a National Security Issue

Everything that Mnuchin attributed to Bitcoin — for one thing, that it has been used in concert with such “illicit activity [as] cyber crime, tax evasion, extortion … illicit drugs, and human trafficking” — can be said, and to degrees an order of magnitude or more larger, about the U.S. dollar.

India Says It's Working with Russia on De-Dollarisation of Bilateral Trade

New Delhi (Sputnik): India says it is working with Russia to overcome payment issues for its strategic imports from that country. Deputy National Security Advisor of India, Ambassador Pankaj Saran said both sides are working on rupee-rouble trade to overcome a crisis caused by US financial sanctions.

Addressing the Second India-Russia Strategic Economic Dialogue in New Delhi on Wednesday, Ambassador Saran said this would help overcome India’s adverse balance of trade with Russia.

“As part of the trading environment, there have been talks about trade in national currencies. This again is still a work in progress and we need to see how we can operationalise and move forward on this idea, because increasingly we see many countries in the world are taking recourse to trading in their own respective currencies", said Ambassador Saran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if President Trump understands, to any possible degree, how much these sanctions are hurting - and will hurt - US businesses?!?

TURKEY WILL GET A CHUNK OF SYRIA, AN ADVANTAGE OF BEING IN NATO

ERIC ZUESSE, ORIGINALLY POSTED AT THE SAKER
The success of Turkey’s takeover of Syria’s most pro-jihadist province, Idlib, is making less and less likely that Syria will be able to continue maintaining Idlib as being a part of Syria. (This is something I had predicted, back on 14 September 2018, to be possible or even likely, and now it is actually happening.) On July 10th, Reuters headlined “Assad hits a wall in Syrian war as front lines harden”, and reported that, “More than two months of Russian-backed operations in and around Idlib province have yielded little or nothing for Assad’s side. It marks a rare case of a military campaign that has not gone his way since Russia intervened in 2015. While resisting government attacks, the insurgents have managed to carve out small advances of their own, drawing on ample stocks of guided anti-tank missiles that opposition and diplomatic sources say have been supplied by Turkey.” It continues:

Jeffrey Epstein Allegedly Bankrolled Ex-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s Tech Startup, Israel Media Reports

Ehud Barak, who defeated Benjamin Netanyahu in a 1999 election to become Israel's prime minister, has been linked to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Less than three weeks after announcing that he will come out of political retirement to challenge Benjamin Netanyahu for prime minister in the upcoming Israeli elections, as YNet News reported, former prime minister Ehud Barak is facing allegations that he is financially tied to convicted sex offender and shadowy financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein pleaded guilty in 2008 to a sexual offense with a 14-year-old girl, and was arrested again on July 6 on new sex trafficking charges. Barak, a former lieutenant general in Israel’s army, served as Israel’s 10th prime minister from 1999 to 2001, after defeating Netanyahu, who was then serving his first term as Israeli PM.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These allegations may well be the KOD (Kiss of Death) for Barak's campaign to serve Israel as prime minister again.

FBI's spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele's dossier

Some in the news media have tried in recent days to rekindle their long-lost love affair with former MI6 agent Christopher Steele and his now infamous dossier.

But lest anyone be tempted to think Steele’s 2016 dossier is about to be mysteriously revived as credible, consider this: Over months of work, FBI agents painstakingly researched every claim Steele made about Trump’s possible collusion with Russia, and assembled their findings into a spreadsheet-like document.

The over-under isn’t flattering to Steele.

Multiple sources familiar with the FBI spreadsheet tell me the vast majority of Steele’s claims were deemed to be wrong, or could not be corroborated even with the most awesome tools available to the U.S. intelligence community. One source estimated the spreadsheet found upward of 90 percent of the dossier’s claims to be either wrong, nonverifiable or open-source intelligence found with a Google search.

In other words, it was mostly useless.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Dementocrats are going to try to hold this over President Trump's head, right though to the next election.

However, in light of the reality that he has done everything for big business, and the military industrial complex he possibly could do, with the wars continuing, and looking to get "hotter" in various areas of the world, I seriously doubt that the Dems can come up with a candidate who can carry the next election on their shoulders.

Trump promises to probe China’s alleged ‘infiltration’ of Google

Donald Trump has said his administration will probe accusations that Google has been infiltrated after working with China’s military, days after billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel called for the tech giant to be investigated.

The US president tweeted on Tuesday that he would “take a look” at Thiel’s assertion that Google was in cahoots with Beijing and should face a federal investigation. During a speech on Sunday, the co-founder of PayPal urged the FBI and CIA to take action, suggesting that Google may be “thoroughly infiltrated” by Chinese intelligence. Thiel failed to provide evidence when pressed further about his incendiary claims, stressing that he was simply “raising questions” about Google’s relationship with Beijing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Methinks that Google.... has chosen to "mess with the wrong President"!! on this issue.

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.

‘TECHNICAL INCIDENT’ PUTS EUROPE’S GPS SYSTEM FULLY OFFLINE FOR DAYS

SOURCE: RT
A major technical error has caused Europe’s satellite navigation system to be fully offline since Friday, with most satellites powering the Galileo system broken, the EU’s space agency has said.
Europe’s Galileo system was built to replace the US’ GPS system but, since the outage, users are automatically being switched back to the US positioning system. The Global Navigation Satellite Systems Agency (GNSS) said in a statement on Sunday that “a technical incident related to its ground infrastructure” had caused the problem.

The incident led to the “temporary interruption” of the Galileo services since Friday, with the exception of the Search and Rescue (SAR) service, which locates people in distress situations at sea or on mountains, GNSS said.

The agency said its experts are working to restore operations “as soon as possible” and that an ‘Anomaly Review Board’ has been set up to analyze the “exact root cause and to implement recovery actions.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; sabotage, per chance?!?

And then, cui bono?!? Who benefits from this interruption of services?

JUDGE REDUCES SONOMA CO. MAN'S $80 MILLION AWARD FROM MONSANTO TO $25 MILLION

A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday reduced an $80 million award levied against Monsanto Co. to $25 million for a Sonoma County man who claimed the company's Roundup weedkiller caused his non-Hodgkins' lymphoma.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria upheld a jury award of approximately $5 million in compensatory damages to Edwin Hardeman, 70, of Santa Rosa, but said that guidelines in a 2013 Supreme Court decision required him to reduce the jury's $75 million in punitive damages to $20 million.

The ruling leaves Hardeman's total award at $25,267,634. His case was the first to go to trial of more than 1,000 federal lawsuits against Monsanto nationwide.

FLORIDA SHERIFF DEPUTY ARRESTED AFTER PLANTING DRUGS ON INNOCENT PEOPLE

A former Florida sheriff’s deputy was arrested Wednesday for planting drugs and falsely arresting at least 10 people, including one case where Reason obtained body camera footage showing him lying about the results of roadside field test.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) announced yesterday that, following a months-long investigation, former Jackson County sheriff’s deputy Zach Wester had been arrested and charged with 52 felony crimes, including racketeering, false imprisonment, fabricating evidence, and drug possession.

In a stunning 30-page affidavit, the FDLE laid out how Wester kept unmarked bags of marijuana and meth amphetamines in the trunk of his patrol car, manipulated his body cam footage, planted drugs in people’s cars, and falsified arrest reports to railroad innocent people under the color of law. His victims, many of whom had prior records or were working to stay sober, had their lives upended. One man lost custody of his daughter.

Why this guy wasn't hit with an Internal Affairs investigation much sooner than the FDLE investigation, is absolutely beyond me; this guy had an almost pathological desire to hurt innocent people.

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.

GOING QUIET: MORE STATES ARE HIDING 911 RECORDINGS FROM FAMILIES, LAWYERS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC

At Rhode Island Hospital, Phillips learned that his 46-year-old brother had stopped for lunch at a Subway sandwich shop, in Cranston, when he collapsed.

The cause of death was hypertensive cardiovascular disease, according to his death certificate.

In the months since his brother’s death, Phillips — a volunteer firefighter and licensed EMT — has been trying to piece together what happened the day Scott died.

“Being an EMT,” Troy Phillips said, “you just want to know, what happened?”

But he keeps hitting a wall.

Rhode Island is one of about a dozen states that prohibit the release of 911 recordings or transcripts without the written consent of the caller or by court order. The goal generally is to protect the privacy of callers in what may be one of the most stressful moments of their lives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CPR should be taught in every public school, with a certificate issued, if the kids are capable of knowing when and how to use it, by the end of Junior High School.

MARYLAND POLICE AGENCIES HAVE FOR YEARS BROKEN LAW MANDATING REPORTING OF EXCESSIVE FORCE, CHARGES AGAINST OFFICERS

SOURCE: BALTIMORE SUN
In the wake of Freddie Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody and the subsequent protests and rioting in Baltimore in 2015, state lawmakers passed a law mandating police agencies across Maryland report when officers use excessive force or injure someone and cases of officers’ criminal misconduct, among other data.

However, dozens of agencies — including the Baltimore Police Department — never did so. That’s resulted in extreme undercounting of such encounters in annual reports mandated by the law and collated by the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission.

In 2018, 42 of 148 agencies required to submit data did not, according to the commission.

“There was a misunderstanding here about which unit was responsible for submitting,” said Matt Jablow, a Baltimore Police spokesman, after The Baltimore Sun asked this week about the agency’s failure to comply with the law.

HOW ISRAELI-DESIGNED DRONES BECAME RUSSIA’S EYES IN THE SKY FOR DEFENDING BASHAR AL-ASSAD

How Israeli-designed drones ended up supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a case study in the complicated relationship between Israel and Russia. Though Russia has been instrumental in protecting the Assad government, which appeared to be on the brink of collapse four years ago, it has also carefully cultivated a military relationship with Israel over the past decade.

After more than seven years of war, the skies over Syria are saturated with aircraft from multiple militaries and armed groups, each pursuing their own goals, including using the country as a weapons-testing ground. American airpower and Kurdish ground forces helped grind the Islamic State’s caliphate down to a tiny pocket before it dramatically collapsed this past spring. Meanwhile, Turkish occupation forces and their proxies are conducting a brutal campaign of repression in the Syrian-Kurdish canton of Afrin.

TOP FBI, DOJ OFFICIALS USE DRUG-CARTEL-STYLE BURNER PHONES TO DODGE FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS, LAWMAKERS

TOP FBI, DOJ OFFICIALS USE DRUG-CARTEL-STYLE BURNER PHONES TO DODGE FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS, LAWMAKERS.

Members of the FBI and Justice Department’s top brass at their Washington D.C.headquarters and other field offices are now using burner phones to stay under the radar of federal investigators and lawmakers, according to FBI insiders.

The shocking revelations come on the heels of news that the FBI deleted thousands of text messages between anti-Trump FBI agents before investigators could review their content.

While that is disturbing on one level, FBI and DOJ hierarchy employing the telecom habits of drug cartel bosses reaches a new low for the once-heralded federal law enforcement agency and the DOJ. And breaks federal laws as well.

PFAS CRISIS EXPANDS AS MILLIONS OF AMERICANS IN 43 STATES ARE EXPOSED TO TOXIC CHEMICALS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Tens of millions of Americans in 43 states may have been exposed to toxic fluorinated compounds known as PFAS in their drinking water.

In a report from May, the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) showed how PFAS had exposed upwards of 19 million Americans through contaminated groundwater. EWG found 610 contaminated locations ranging from public water systems, military bases, military and civilian airports, industrial plants, dumps, and firefighter training sites.

Now the environmental advocacy group has identified 58 more military sites where high levels of PFAS used in firefighting foam have been detected in groundwater or drinking water, from Elmendorf Air Force Base and Fort Richardson, Alaska to Fort Eustis, Virginia, reported the Military Times.

TRUMP MAY APPOINT FRINGE NEOCON TO HEAD INTELLIGENCE

It keeps getting worse. The neocons have burrowed termite-deep inside the Trump administration and rumor has it the president will add yet another one to an important cabinet position.

If there is any substance to the latest rumors, DNI Dan Coats will be replaced by Fred Fleitz, former NSC executive secretary, CIA analyst, Trump Chief of Staff, Bolton enforcer, and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.

This last one should send up a huge red flag. CSP is a project launched by Frank Gaffney Jr., an Islamophobe way out on the neocon fringe. During the Trump presidential campaign, I wrote a short ebook (Donald Trump and the War on Islam) about Gaffney, among other neocons and rabid Israel-firsters exacting a corrosive influence on the Trump campaign.
I wrote:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is terrifying about so many of these Presidential appointments, is that President Trump is so surrounded by ultra-Rightists, who pathologically cannot distinguish between what is good for the US, and what may be good for Israel, that they may push this country into an absolutely wrong decision regarding Iran.

War with Iran?!? I am sure that Gaffney believes that this will be good for Israel, so he will be very motivated to encourage President Trump to engage in such a war.

There is, of course, one tiny problem with that stance; if the US invades Iran, what will Russia do?!?

The hard, real truth, is that Russia will continue its friendship with Iran, and will not be deterred by US military action taken.

The US has seen what Russian equipment and troops can do, in their getting the US-trained and funded jihadis out of Syria. By attempting to invade Iran, the US will have the opportunity to get clobbered again, as the US military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to such a conflict with Russia right now.

Mr. President, were I you right now, I would hedge my bets in terms of taking any actions against Iran, other than what you have already done, economically. And please remember the following, stated by a Russian Diplomat on 26 June, 2019: Zamir Kabulov says Iran will not stand alone, if attacked by the US

Mr. President, I do no believe that Kabulov was "bluffing" when he made that statement; I would, therefore, strongly encourage you to please take that into account.

CITY HALLS USE FACIAL RECOGNITION TO BLACKLIST AND BAN RESIDENTS

SOURCE: BLOGSPOT.COM

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Local governments and private corporations are using facial recognition to secretly blacklist people, despite having no valid reason to do so.

A recent article in the Idaho Statesman and in the video above, prove that local governments are using facial recognition to ban residents from accessing city-owned buildings.

The Boise city council claimed that they need facial recognition cameras to protect public employees from disgruntled or unwelcome residents.

Wow, there must be a lot of disgruntled or unhappy residents for the city council to justify putting facial recognition cameras in Boise City Hall and City Hall West, right?

Would you believe both city halls have banned just one single resident because he opposed using city funds to pay for an NBA developmental league team.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very unwelcome development, and a harbinger of other nasty deplatforming, and side-lining still to come.

I am a Christian pacifist activist; I am not here to create any tension, or upset; I just work with the facts, the best I can, to encourage our government to be responsible and transparent in what it does.

I am sure that every government "alphabet soup" agency is reading my contributions to WRH, and are feeling very exasperated, because I never support violence of any kind. So... peace be with you, my brothers and sisters!! :-)

EU Launches Amazon Anti-Trust Probe

Now that the EU's anti-trust regulator is finished fining the bejeezus out of Alphabet, the European Commission is turning its attention to another American tech giant: Amazon.

The e-commerce giant is facing a formal EU anti-trust probe over its treatment of third-party merchants on its platform, a premise that doesn't sound all that different from the EU's investigation into Google's AdSense advertising business (the EU hit Google with three multi-billion anti-trust fines over the past few years). In addition to the Amazon probe, the EU is also juggling investigations into Facebook, Apple and Twitter over violations of the EU's new GDPR privacy laws.

According to WSJ, Amazon is suspected of "abusing its dual role as both the provider of a marketplace where independent sellers can offer products and a retailer of products in its own right." In particular, the probe will explore whether "Amazon is using sensitive data from independent merchants to compete against them."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is also very possible, that Google picked the absolutely wrong President to deplatform, as it has done for so many sites supporting President Trump.

Why does the global economy need rescuing after 10 years of non stop monetary stimulus?

Why does the global economy need rescuing after 10 years of non stop monetary stimulus?

I also have an answer and it’s an unpleasant one. Because by bailing out markets and economies at every sign of trouble over the past 10 years central banks have given politicians license to do nothing. And nothing is what you get as political discourse fragments and majority solutions are impossible to come by.

But not only are majority solution impossible to get nobody even wants to even talk about them. Why? Because they involve pain. Voters don’t want to hear pain. Hence all you hear is free money. Tax cuts in 2016. Now we hear free college, health care and debt forgiveness for 2020 and who knows maybe more tax cuts.

Nobody wants to campaign on pain. I get it. But does anyone really think solving the structural problems that are behind slowing growth after 10 years of monetary stimulus are easily solvable?

Is Area 51 just a distraction?

Pay no attention to that hyper-inflated, homeless, jobless, fracked and oil-soaked, Fukushima irradiated police state we foisted on you via the 9/11 and London 7/7 false-flag attacks!

Here is freaky alien dude for you to go "Whoa!" at. Here is a Mayan dude sayin' it's the end of the world! Here is a weird noise in the sky for you to go "WTF?!" at! Here is a piece of toast with the face of Jesus on it! Here is (another one?) photo-shopped image of a TERRORIST guy who's been dead since 2001! ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE! Here is a Project BLUE BEAM Virgin Mary in-the-sky to keep you distracted in la-la land!

Meanwhile, we will continue our de-population, loot and pollute the planet scheme we hatched at a secret Illuminati meeting, from our REX-84, continuation of government, radiation proof D.U.M.B. where we protect our elite, trans-human, incestual, DNA genome blood-line! C-Ya!

Bank Run: Deutsche Bank Clients Are Pulling $1 Billion A Day

There is a reason James Simons' RenTec is the world's best performing hedge fund - it spots trends (even if they are glaringly obvious) well ahead of almost everyone else, and certainly long before the consensus.

That's what happened with Deutsche Bank, when as we reported two weeks ago, the quant fund pulled its cash from Deutsche Bank as a result of soaring counterparty risk, just days before the full - and to many, devastating - extent of the German lender's historic restructuring was disclosed, and would result in a bank that is radically different from what Deutsche Bank was previously (see "The Deutsche Bank As You Know It Is No More").

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to have a domino effect on other major banks, and most probably very soon.

By Way of DecEpstein

Yesterday, prosecutors revealed that Jeffrey Epstein kept a fake Saudi passport in his home’s safe along with diamonds and piles of cash. It also emerged last week that Epstein invested millions in a deal with former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Barak acknowledged to the Daily Beast that he, like other world leaders, visited Epstein’s Island and that he was first introduced to Epstein by Shimon Peres, former Israeli prime minister and president.

Barak’s high-tech company financed by the arch sex trafficker is called Carbyne. The Israeli enterprise develops “call-handling and identification capabilities for emergency response services,” essentially it seeks total access to your phone, its GPS system and its camera. This shouldn’t take us by surprise. By now we know that Epstein was very excited by cameras.

MARYLAND POLICE AGENCIES HAVE FOR YEARS BROKEN LAW MANDATING REPORTING OF EXCESSIVE FORCE, CHARGES AGAINST OFFICERS

In the wake of Freddie Gray’s death from injuries suffered in police custody and the subsequent protests and rioting in Baltimore in 2015, state lawmakers passed a law mandating police agencies across Maryland report when officers use excessive force or injure someone and cases of officers’ criminal misconduct, among other data.

However, dozens of agencies — including the Baltimore Police Department — never did so. That’s resulted in extreme undercounting of such encounters in annual reports mandated by the law and collated by the Maryland Police Training and Standards Commission.

In 2018, 42 of 148 agencies required to submit data did not, according to the commission.

“There was a misunderstanding here about which unit was responsible for submitting,” said Matt Jablow, a Baltimore Police spokesman, after The Baltimore Sun asked this week about the agency’s failure to comply with the law.

'Holocaust Education': An Excuse to Bludgeon Everyone Into Accepting Jewish Moral Supremacy

A friend of mine recently commented that if the current trend to reduce the study of history in schools to easily digestible politically correct soundbites that are being successfully pushed by social justice warriors continues, we will soon be limited to discussing how horrible slavery was, the Stonewall Inn riots and the so-called holocaust. Indeed, it seems that those who complain the loudest are the only ones listened to and no one complains more often or at greater volume than American Jewish groups intent on preserving the benefits that are derived from always being able to claim their perpetual victimhood.

Why the Holocaust Story Was Invented

World War II was by far the bloodiest and most destructive war in human history. Many people wondered whether all of the death and destruction caused by the war had been necessary.

The so-called Holocaust was used by the Allies to demonize Germany and prove that their war effort was necessary to defeat such an evil nation.

When Truth Fears Investigation: On August 5th We Honor the Life of Ernst Zündel

August 5, 2018 marks the one-year anniversary of Ernst Zündel’s passing. He was essentially kidnapped from the U.S. and forced to remain in Germany. His wife, Ingrid Rimland, was unable to leave the U.S. to be with him. She risked jail time in Germany despite having no previous criminal convictions.

His crime? Ernst Zündel was deemed a “security threat.” Not because he was ever violent or ever incited violence, but because he created a legal precedent in which:

For the first time ever, “Holocaust” survivors and “Holocaust” historians were closely and critically questioned under oath about their claims and views.

Few Canadians realize that Zündel did them “a favor by wiping off the books [the] disgraceful False News laws” strangling free-speech.

New CNN Assange Smear Piece Is Amazingly Dishonest, Even For CNN

By Caitlin Johnstone

CNN has published an unbelievably brazen and dishonest smear piece on Julian Assange, easily the most egregious article of its kind since the notoriously bogus Assange-Manafort report by The Guardian last year. It contains none of the “exclusive” documents which it claims substantiate its smears, relying solely on vague unsubstantiated assertions and easily debunked lies to paint the WikiLeaks founder in a negative light.

And let’s be clear right off the bat, it is most certainly a smear piece...

Teenager Cited Anti-Gay Bullying for Stabbing Death. He Was Found Guilty.

On a September morning two years ago, Abel Cedeno put on a pink Kylie Minogue shirt, and then tossed his books and inhaler into his backpack.

Just before leaving for school that day, he took a switchblade knife he had bought online from the top of his dresser and placed it in his pocket.

Within a few hours, the then 18-year-old senior had fatally stabbed Matthew McCree, 15, and permanently maimed Ariane LaBoy, 16, in a history class at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in the Bronx.

On Monday, a state judge found Mr. Cedeno guilty of manslaughter, assault and criminal possession of an illegal knife, rejecting Mr. Cedeno’s claim he had acted in self-defense after Mr. McCree had punched him. Mr. Cedeno faces up to 50 years in prison.

*He took a knife to school & then lied. He only came out as gay AFTER he had been charged. His lawyer even tried to smear the victim.*

Knowing the “Value” of Our Data Won’t Fix Our Privacy Problems

By Hayley Tsukayama

Some lawmakers, seeking to hold companies accountable for the way they collect and profit from our personal information, are pushing a new idea: requiring companies to report a dollar value for the data they collect from us. Some frame this reporting as a first step towards requiring companies to share with consumers the wealth our personal information generates for these companies. Yet knowing how much your personal information is worth to a company doesn’t actually protect your privacy—and the “pay for privacy” schemes that would probably follow from valuation reporting would actually harm it...

UK ambassador vouched for 'legit' dossier author, said Trump killed Iran deal to spite Obama, leaks show

President Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal last year in an act of "diplomatic vandalism" to spite Barack Obama, according to a new leaked diplomatic cable purportedly written by British ambassador Kim Darroch in 2018.

Darroch also reportedly told a U.S. official that Christopher Steele, the author of the discredited anti-Trump dossier that the FBI used to justify secretly monitoring members of the Trump team, was "absolutely legit." Steele, in producing the dossier and several of its false or unsubstantiated claims, was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

The leaked diplomatic documents were published by the The Mail on Sunday, days after the paper published several anti-Trump messages Darroch sent to Downing Street from 2017 to present.

Who Remembers the Sandy Hook School Shootings?

The official explanation given of the Sandy Hook school shootings struck many people at the time as fishy. Various aspects of the story did not seem to go together well or fit normal procedures for such a crime. Contradictory evidence was never explained, and doubts based on evidence were ignored rather than answered.

Now a Wisconsin state judge, Frank D. Remington, has renewed doubts about the Sandy Hook event. This was not Judge Remington’s intention. It was the result of his summary judgment in a civil defamation lawsuit in favor of Lenny Pozner against James Fetzer and Mike Palecek. Fetzer accused Pozner of using a fake death certificate as evidence that Noah Samuel Pozner, age 6, was shot and killed at Sandy Hook school.

Judge Remington has renewed suspicions about the school shooting, because he kept expert witness testimony favorable to the defendants from the jury and issued instead his own declaration of the defendants guilt in place of jury determination.

WHEN YOU READ OR HEAR CERTAIN WORDS & EXPRESSIONS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN & WHY YOU’RE HEARING/READING THEM?

Let’s take for example the term “extreme right wing“. This is a term you hear on the corporate media quite frequently. What you don’t ever hear is “extreme left wing” The left wing can never get too extreme – for example; Antifa can’t get too violent, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez cannot spend too much of the taxpayer’s money, mother earth worshipers cannot make too unbelievable future forecasts of global warming disasters, and Wolf Blitzer cannot tell a lie. On the other hand, “extreme right wingers” are exceedingly dangerous and always have a negative connotation attached to them. They need to be “reined in”, “silenced”, “shut down”, “neutered”, “not believed” etc. You, the reader or listener must not have a discerning mind but must instead believe – YOU MUST BELIEVE!!! One good example is the John Birch Society which has never done anything extreme in their history, but Wikipedia would tell you they have been referred to as “extreme right wing”.

Concord Management and the End of Russiagate?

Don’t look now, but a federal judge in Washington, D.C., has just shut down half of Robert Mueller’s Russian-interference case.

In February 2018, the special prosecutor indicted a St. Petersburg troll farm called the Internet Research Agency along with two other companies, their owner, Yevgeniy Prigozhin, and 12 employees. The charge: fraud, traveling to the United States under false pretenses, and using social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to “sow discord” and “interfere in US political and electoral processes without detection of their Russian affiliation.”

If You Use Social Media You Support the Gestapo Police State

Americans, being an insouciant people, are unaware and unconcerned that their addiction to social media supports the Gestapo Police State. Both Twitter and Facebook are mechanisms by which the police state imposes censorship on Americans and casts aside the First Amendment. Social media is also used to isolate truth-tellers and to disappear dissidents who expose the official lies used to control people by controlling the explanations that they receive.

The latest strike against freedom is by the fascist organization Twitter which has just suspended the support account for WikiLeaks founder, and Washington victim, Julian Assange.

Top Assange Defense Account Deleted By Twitter

One of the biggest Twitter accounts dedicated to circulating information and advocacy for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, @Unity4J, has been completely removed from the site. The operators of the account report that they have been given no reason for its removal by Twitter staff, and have received no response to their appeals.

Any Assange supporter active on Twitter will be familiar with the Unity4J account, which originated to help boost the wildly successful Unity4J online vigils in which well-known Assange defenders would appear to speak out against his persecution. As of this writing, the account has been gone for a day and a half.

The Corrupt System Will Never Police Itself

We can no longer deceive ourselves with notions of absorbing Washington D.C. or Wall Street and making them work for us. The hope that this is possible is poison, and the elites use that poison to weaken public resolve. While we sit around waiting for the system to police itself the Earth turns and they become more powerful. Without a dramatic change in our own strategy, without direct action on our part instead of action through political middlemen, I predict our situation will only become worse.
