Under the Trump administration U.S. air attacks in Afghanistan have sharply increased. But it now seems that the Taliban have acquired some means to counter them.

Last year the U.S. dropped a record number of bombs on Afghanistan leading to ever increasing casualties among civilians:

According to the Combined Forces Air Component Commander (CFACC) 2013-2019 Airpower Statistics released in late January, 7,423 missions flown in Afghanistan in 2019 resulted in weapons being released. There were more weapon releases in most months of the year than in any corresponding months since records were first released in 2009, with September recording the most for the year at 948.
The previous annual record was 7,362 set in 2018, and the last two years together have seen more weapon releases over Afghanistan than the combined number for 2012 through to 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please understand; the Afghanis do not "hate us for our freedoms"; they hate us because our military is taking out their wives; their kids; their aunties; and the medically fragile elderly, who cannot run, when they can hear the start of a bombing campaign.

Afghanistan is not called "the Graveyard of Empires" for no good reason; The British found that out; so did the old Soviet Union; and after 19 years of epic failure, the US government should also consider these lessons from history, and withdraw.

Alexander the Great of Macedonia, was the last guy to control Afghanistan from the outside, through a series of alliances and dynastic marriages; but that was only for a relatively short period of time.

These perpetual wars are destroying this country, and ripping resources right out from under the American people; this is not only bad foreign policy, but highly immoral as well.

A recent Appeals Court ruling in Tennessee reveals a disturbing window into how police use concerts, music festivals and sporting events to trample our Fourth Amendment rights.

When Brian Wiley purchased tickets to the Bonnaaroo Music Festival in 2016 he never thought that police would be allowed to search his car without probable cause.

Yet that is exactly what happened.

The Bonnaroo Music Festival is a four-day music festival that provides overnight camping to concertgoers with the added bonus of being searched free of charge.

According to Coffee County Sheriff’s investigator James Sherrill, Mr. Wiley should have known that concertgoers and campers would be searched the moment they stepped foot onto the festivals grounds.

The police argued that Mr. Wiley’s music festival ticket gives police permission to search everyone, including their vehicles.

The terms of admission printed on the back of the ticket in fine print are,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, THAT takes the entire state of Tennessee off my potential visiting list!

And I don't do, or have anything, that would be considered illegal in this state, but folks, really; this is the way state law is meandering very close toward a dictatorship, in complete denial of American citizens' Constitutional Rights!!

Despite a massive and peaceful turnout on the Lobby Day rally on January 20th, the Virginia State Congress remained totally unfazed by what the people wanted and proceeded to advance numerous unconstitutional gun laws over the following week.

While everyone has been focused on the Wuhan coronavirus, state lawmakers have been quietly eroding gun rights.

Proving they don’t care at all about the opinions of the people of Virginia, the state’s Senate passed a “red flag” gun law only two days later. Here’s the summary of SB240.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those Virginians who find such legislation offensive, and flying in the face of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of this country, please find out which Virginia legislators are supporting this legislation, and if they (allegedly) represent you, call their offices in a firm, but polite tone, and let them know if they continue along this path, that they will be voted out of office in the next election cycle with great enthusiasm, never to return to even a position as a public dog-catcher in that state.

Coronavirus Alert

Jan 29 06:14


An antivirus program used by hundreds of millions of people around the world is selling highly sensitive web browsing data to many of the world's biggest companies, a joint investigation by Motherboard and PCMag has found. Our report relies on leaked user data, contracts, and other company documents that show the sale of this data is both highly sensitive and is in many cases supposed to remain confidential between the company selling the data and the clients purchasing it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Have you ever noticed, that your browsing history comes sideways at you, when you least expect it, through various ads for related products?!?

I certainly have.

I like shopping for clothing on line, and have a couple of favorite sites to go to, when I do; then, suddenly, the webpage I am visiting will be deluged with ads for clothing similar to what I have looked at.

Most likely, Jumpshot is the culprit here.

According to a new report from the Kansas City Star, the University of Missouri (MU) has started using an app called SpotterEdu to track students to determine attendance in classes.

Individual professors will choose whether or not to use the app. If they choose to use it, students in those classes will be unable to opt-out and therefore forced to install the software on their mobile phones.

The unprecedented Orwellian move requires students to install the app with no option to opt-out of the potential privacy-invasive software. “A student will have to participate in this recording of attendance,” Jim Spain, vice provost for undergraduate studies at MU said in a statement to the Kansas City Star.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I even thinking about attending this university, I would have to decline, due to this student surveillance app, and I would let both Jim Spain and Dr. Mun Choi, its President, understand why, in no uncertain terms.

And folks; this is precisely what this app is; a way of "grooming" students to accept more and more surveillance in their lives, as the "new normal".

The Nasty Secret Behind Aramco, ISIS and Trump in Syria

Makes sense now. Syria has more oil and natural gas than you can shake a stick at. New discoveries. New fields.

The Saudi Arabian oil company, Aramco, is now hiring oil workers throughout Deir Ezzor Province inside Syria as part of a joint effort, nominally with an unknown American entity and with full partnership with both ISIS and the United States Army.

Thousands of unemployed Syrian engineers and oil workers are being asked to apply for jobs paying $3000 per month.

No one knows who they will be working for.This is the story we will be examining, how it began and where it is going now.

In 2017, soon after Trump took office, Aramco, the Saudi owned oil conglomerate, opened offices in Deir Ezzor province in Syria.

Under the protection of both ISIS and the United States Army, Aramco began an exploration of 12 new oil and gas deposits recognized by American SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) military satellites, retasked for this purpose.

The Establishment Doesn’t Fear Trump, And It Doesn’t Fear Bernie. It Fears You.

I very seldom use the term deep state anymore, because its meaning in mainstream discourse has been completely corrupted. Now when I want to point to America’s permanent unelected power structures I usually use the word “oligarchy” or “empire”, or simply “establishment”.

Whenever I point out that the current administration has been advancing many longstanding agendas of the CIA and neoconservative war pigs–agendas like military expansionism, imprisoning Assange, regime change interventionism in Iran and Venezuela, and reigniting the Cold War–his supporters always come in saying “If he’s working for the establishment how come the establishment is working so hard to get rid of him, huh?”

Well, for starters, they’re not........

US military source says there were NO CIA staff on Afghanistan crash jet after Iranian media claimed officer 'behind Soleimani's death' was among those killed

A US military source today said there were no CIA staff on a jet which crashed in Afghanistan on Monday after Iranian media claimed the officer behind Qassem Soleimani's death was among those killed.

The source told the MailOnline the wild claim that Michael D'Andrea was aboard the jet which crashed in Dih Yak, or indeed that any CIA members had been killed, was absurd.

A US official earlier confirmed the bodies of two American personnel had been recovered from the crash site while denying Taliban claims the E-11A communications jet containing 'high ranking officers' had been shot down.
