Good Riddance Evo Morales

So Morales, the communist cocalero, is gone. Before your automatic conditioning makes you yell "the CIA did it!", why not pause for a moment and reflect if the Latin American people are not able to make their own decisions and choose the path of freedom and honesty without the help of the US?

Consider that, first and foremost, Morales is a radical Marxist, a union leader who started his career supported by the Communist Party, who considers capitalism the worst enemy of mankind.

Politifact Was Just Caught Lying Again

To anyone who ever doubted that Politifact was a left-wing blog acting under the guise of being an independent fact checker, look no further on their latest attempt at gas-lighting American voters.

In the past I’ve argued that Politifact is at least clever with their bias, often choosing to simply fact check more Republican or conservative statements than liberal ones to give the impression that those on the right are making falsehoods more often. Of course, there have been times when they’ve slipped up, fact-checking nearly identical claims from Republicans and Democrats and rating the former false, and latter true.

Why Is Christopher Steele Still a Thing?

Christopher Steele became famous in the United States as the author of a “dossier” that claimed Russians had been “cultivating, supporting, and assisting” Donald Trump “for at least 5 years.”

Now Steele is back, claiming that the Russians have been cultivating the Tories and Boris Johnson for . . . five years.

Polish PM Slams Netflix World War II Documentary: ‘Nothing Short of Rewriting History’

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki condemned Netflix for inaccuracies in a documentary it debuted about World War II, Poland’s national press agency reported on Monday.

Mateusz sent a letter to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings accusing the film The Devil Next Door of “obfuscating historical facts,” including showcasing maps that “falsely places several German Nazi concentration camps within modern-day Poland’s borders,” according to the Polish Press Agency:

Are You Ready For A Catastrophically Cold Winter? Here's What The Mainstream Media Won't Tell You...

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

Experts are warning us that this will be a “freezing, frigid, and frosty” winter, and even though the official beginning of winter is still over a month away, it already feels like that in much of the country right now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To our Readers and Listeners; please, think about buying a freezer for your home right now; if possible, go in with friends and family to do this.

And I say this because food prices, as we head into next spring, are going to be horrendous, due to huge swathes of land which cannot be planted or harvested due to wicked weather.

Global Proxy War Escalates: "Destabilizing Operation" Sends Bolivia Into Political Chaos

Authored by Michael Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Two days before Bolivian president Evo Morales was pushed out by the country’s military, Mark Weisbot of the Center for Economic and Policy Research penned a warning about what was happening, and what might unfold, in a Nation article titled, The Trump Administration Is Undercutting Democracy in Bolivia.

He noted:

Multilateral organizations like the Organization of American States (OAS) have a certain perceived impartiality because they are, in theory, controlled by a diverse group of nations. But sometimes a great power can wield a disproportionate influence. It could theoretically be a coincidence that both the Trump administration and the OAS have tried—without offering any evidence—to discredit Bolivia’s national election in the past couple of weeks. But it’s more likely that this dangerous, ugly, and destabilizing operation is being pushed by Washington.

IsraeGaza StripIsraeli airstrike kills Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza home

A pair of Israeli airstrikes targeted senior Islamic Jihad commanders in Gaza and Syria early Tuesday, escalating Israel’s confrontation with Iran across the region and threatening to unleash another devastating round of cross-border violence with Palestinian militants.

In eastern Gaza, the Israeli strike killed Bahaa Abu el-Atta and his wife, setting off a furious barrage of Gaza-fired rockets that reached as far as the Tel Aviv heartland as Islamic Jihad vowed further revenge. The military said Abu el-Atta was the mastermind of recent attacks against Israel and the militant group’s top commander in Gaza.

Meanwhile, Syrian officials said an Israeli airstrike in the capital, Damascus, targeted another Islamic Jihad commander, Akram al-Ajouri, who was not harmed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has become a regional master at provocation, assassinations, and is obviously readying for a complete, utter, and total war against Gaza.

I would like to strongly, but politely, caution Tel Aviv to be very, very careful about what it wishes for, as the outcome to such a conflict.

Forget reform: Saudi Arabia will now punish feminist women with 'flogging and prison sentences'

Saudi citizens found guilty of engaging in homosexuality and feminism could see themselves lashed or imprisoned in the ultraconservative kingdom, lawyers suggested.

The punitive measures could range from fines, to public lashing or even imprisonment, lawyer Nawaf al-Nabati said, according to al-Watan.

The remarks came just hours after Saudi Arabia listed feminism and homosexuality as extremist elements, on Friday, despite the kingdom’s ongoing drive to reform and relax its ultraconservative laws.
Saudi Arabia’s counter-extremism department announced the move on Twitter, where it warned its citizens and nationals to remain cautious against such groups.

"Extremism in all its forms is a societal scourge. It is important to remain cautious,” the statement said, before warning against hardliners who break away from religion to affirm their views.

Israeli forces kill another young Palestinian man ‘for no reason’ in Hebron refugee camp

Israeli forces shot and killed a young Palestinian man outside his home today in the al-Arroub refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Omar al-Badawi, reported to be 22-years-old, was shot in the abdomen near the front steps of his home in the camp during protests commemorating the death of revered Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

Eyewitness reports said that al-Badawi was exiting his home in an attempt to put out a small fire that had started nearby as a result of clashes between Israeli forces and local protesters.

A video, published by Quds News Network, shows al-Badawi slowly exiting an alleyway next to his home and waving a white towel — seemingly to indicate to soldiers that he meant no harm.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The Only Democracy in the Middle East" where innocent Palestinians get assassinated in the prime of their lives.

Israel Is Silencing the Last Voices Trying To Stop Abuses Against Palestinians

It has been a week of appalling abuses committed by Israeli soldiers in the West Bank – little different from the other 2,670 weeks endured by Palestinians since the occupation began in 1967.

The difference this past week was that several entirely unexceptional human rights violations that had been caught on film went viral on social media.

One shows a Palestinian father in the West Bank city of Hebron leading his son by the hand to kindergarten. The pair are stopped by two heavily armed soldiers, there to help enforce the rule of a few hundred illegal Jewish settlers over the city’s Palestinian population.

The soldiers scream at the father, repeatedly and violently push him and then grab his throat as they accuse his small son of throwing stones. As the father tries to shield his son from the frightening confrontation, one soldier pulls out his rifle and sticks it in the father’s face.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the "new normal" for Palestinians.

Warns Iraq must also halt violence against protesters

Throughout weeks of recent anti-government protests in Iraq the US wasn’t immediately clear on their position. It was only following weekend reports of Iran trying to save the current government and forestall early elections that the US declared itself firmly on the side of early elections.

The White House demanded that the Iraqi government immediately fulfill talk of reforms and early elections by President Salih, further demanding an immediate halt on violence against Iraqi protesters.

These are somewhat uncharacteristic positions for the US to take on Iraq, as generally they, like Iran, prefer to prolong the survival of governments at any cost, and they’ve rarely presented anything like opposition to crackdowns on public protests before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the delicious smell of irony and hypocrisy in the morning!!

And it is only because Iran is desperately attempting to preserve the Iraqi government, that the US government is backing snap elections here.

US Ramping Up Firepower in Syria to Match Syria, Russia: US general says redeployment to east Syria required more power.

Maj. Gen. Eric Hill, addressing the arrival of more armored vehicles at the US positions in eastern Syria, says it is part of the “resetting” of the US position further east, and required the US to have more “combat power here to sustain ourselves.”

Maj. Gen. Hill says that the goal is not simply to have power to match ISIS but “the militaries of the Syrian regime, the Russians, or even militias backed by fellow NATO partner Turkey.” The focus is on how everyone is carving up territory in eastern Syria, which was once controlled by the US and its Kurdish allies.

Though the Pentagon likes to brag about its ability to project power across the world, in Syria its ability to accomplish anything has historically hinged on getting the Kurds to do it for them. Though the deployment at the oilfields is no doubt capable of inflicting some casualties if control of the fields is challenged, it’s hard to imagine that the US believes it would truly hold this ground with a few hundred troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The troop strength here will have to be much larger than the number given by the US Military for public consumption; I would suggest a couple of thousand troops, at least, perhaps more.

I only know one thing about this on coming "war against Syria; Russia; and Turkey"; it has to start quickly, because there is zero public sentiment to pursue it, so the US government will have to have it kicked off with some horrific false flag (most probably engineered by the US's frenemies in Tel Aviv), and away we go.....

Such a war will, be again, extra-Constitutional, as only Congress has the power to declare war under our Constitution; but that being said, there is so little regard for the rule of law in this country, I sincerely doubt that more than just a precious few of us will actually notice we are in yet another illegal war of aggression; as was the Iraq war; the war against Afghanistan; and the war against Libya.

I would hope and pray that those who believe such a war would be "a good thing" for this country, are very, very careful about the outcomes they wish to have happen here, and that they remember the following; in classic Greek dramas, those who acted hubristically, wound up very, very punished and generally ultimately, destroyed.

Let’s Invade Mexico! Another Entry in the Tourney of Damn Fool Ideas

I suppose that by now everyone has heard of Trump’s offer to send the American military to “wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth,” which he asserts can be done “quickly and effectively.”

If AMLO were to invite the Americans into Mexico, he would be lynched. Few Americans are aware of how much the United States is hated in Latin America, and for that matter in most of the world. They don’t know of the long series of military interventions, brutal dictators imposed and supported, and economic rapine. Somoza, Pinochet, the Mexican-American War, detachment of Panama from Colombia, bombardment of Veracruz, Patton’s incursion – the list could go on for pages. The Mexican public would look upon American troops not as saviors but as invaders. Which they would be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, just because something would be the most ham-fistedly, bull-headedly stupid thing for this government to do, is no guarantee that they will not do it.

What President Trump should actually accomplish here, is to encourage a re-write the drug laws in this country, and make them legal; this would completely throw the profit motive out the door for the cartels.

Of course, with so many other people are prospering so mightily by allowing drug laws in this country to stay just as they are right now, this will never happen.

This, of course, includes the banks which launder drug money; the politicians who may well get "contributions" from those "concerned that drug laws in this country stay precisely a they are"; and of course, we cannot forget the stockholders, investing in those private prisons, where the people who get caught using, can wind up.

WFP: Hundreds of Thousands of Haitians on the Verge of Famine

The World Food Program warns Haiti is approaching famine like conditions, with more than 1 in 3 people in the country of 11 million in need of urgent assistance.

A food assessment in October finds 1 million of the nearly 3.7 million people suffering severe food shortages in Haiti are facing an emergency and are on the brink of famine.

The World Food Program reports food insecurity in Haiti's rural areas has increased by 15% since the last analysis, in December. For the first time, the assessment shows 850,000 people in the capital Port-au-Prince are suffering severe hunger, with many not sure when they will eat again.

To compound this dramatic situation, WFP spokesman Herve Verhoosel said humanitarian agencies' efforts to reach people in need have been hampered by security problems during the past seven weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Perhaps the Haitian people have developed a profound dislike of both the austerity under which they are forced to live, and the horrific leadership which has been foisted upon them by the West.

The unending corruption of Haiti's President Jovonel Moises and his Administration

And what does the West want to expropriate from Haiti, if only Haiti's people could be "pacified"?!? Let's look the CIA's Index Mundi to find out;

the Natural Resources of Haiti the article goes on to state: "Natural resources: bauxite, copper, calcium carbonate, gold, marble, hydropower, arable land

Definition: This entry lists a country's mineral, petroleum, hydropower, and other resources of commercial importance, such as rare earth elements (REEs). In general, products appear only if they make a significant contribution to the economy, or are likely to do so in the future."

BINGO: Haiti has rare earth elements, or REES, which are critical to enable 21st century technology to exist. As explained in the following article:
Facts About Rare Earth Elements

But do not think, for one minute, that the Haitian people are going to get any reward financially, when these rare earth elements are harvested, most likely by a Western-centric company, and only sold in US dollars; its current government is to see to that. at least as long as it is able to stay in power.

JUDGE SAYS POLICE CAN SEARCH COMPANY'S ENTIRE DNA DATABASE

SOURCE: HUFFINGTONPOST.CA
A Florida detective successfully obtained a warrant to search the company GEDmatch’s full database of user-provided genetic information, even if users had opted out of appearing in police search results, HuffPost has confirmed.

The warrant, signed by a judge in Florida’s Ninth Judicial Circuit Court in July, will likely earn praise from law enforcement and criticism from privacy advocates wary of how DNA databases could be abused.

It appears to be the first warrant of its kind. Orlando Police Department Detective Michael Fields disclosed its existence during the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Chicago last week, according to The New York Times.

Fields told the Times that the warrant has generated new leads but no arrests.

NYPD PROUDLY STAGES SEIZURE OF 106 POUNDS OF LEGAL HEMP

Even though the hemp had been tested and certified to contain less than the legal limit of THC and had been legally FedExed with the proper documentation by a licensed hemp grower to New York, the NTPD couldn’t resist the thought of a big drug bust to brag about, so they set up a trap and arrested the recipient.

After the arrest, the police officers set up an forced perspective photo that made the 106 pounds of innocuous plant material look like it was a major haul.

From the NYPD 75th Precinct FaceBook account: "Great job by Day Tour Sector E yesterday. Working with FedEx and other local law enforcement, they were able to confiscate 106 Lbs. of marijuana, and arrest the individual associated with the intended delivery."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Police departments who continue to do this, should be sued intensely, and the individual officers making these very lousy decisions, relative to US marijuana laws, should be fired immediately.

NATIONAL REAL ID CARDS CREATE ‘INTERNAL PASSPORTS’ THAT WILL ENABLE ORWELLIAN SURVEILLANCE STATE

The official deadline for states to comply with the REAL ID Act is Oct. 1, 2020. The legislation was passed in 2005, and implementation has been stalled for years due to state-level resistance. After playing the waiting game, the feds have settled on next year to enforce their unconstitutional legislative mandate.

Analyst Peter Earle of the American Institute for Economic Research explains that state-level efforts to resist REAL ID are futile, and all will be forced to comply due to federal aid being tied to implementing the onerous scheme. Earle believes these “internal passports” are another step toward the destruction of privacy rights by Big Brother.

SYRIA, OIL, AND THE EXCEPTIONAL, INDISPENSABLE KLEPTOCRATS

Instead of reducing the number of troops as promised, Trump approved an expanded “military mission,” supposedly to “secure” Syrian oil.

Trump Expands Military Mission in Syria Aiming to Control Oil Fields https://t.co/LcPtAiBmmc

— Democracy Now! (@democracynow) November 8, 2019

The Donald is completely irrelevant.

“At a US government-funded think tank at the forefront of shaping Washington’s interventionist designs, an American official succinctly laid out the continued-regime change strategy,” writes Ben Norton for The Grayzone.

The “think tank”—the neocon infested Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) is funded by clueless American taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what kind of bets the bookies in Vegas are taking on some kind of "false flag" (most probably engineered by our Israeli Frenemies in Tel Aviv) against American troops on the ground in Syria, or against Russian troops on the ground here, but I have a feeling that such an event may well happen soon, and it will be horrifically nasty.

One of the most iconic holidays for Americans, is our upcoming Thanksgiving; one has to wonder if this is the weekend planned for such an event, to be thoroughly screamed about throughout Thanksgiving Day, and well washed in the 24/7 news spin cycle by the time the following Monday rolls around.

Overnight polls should start, right after the beginning of the event, to see how many people in the US see it as a "justification" for a war against Syria, and off we go.

There is, however, one slight complication to this scenario; that is the Russian military presence in Syria, and just how far its President Putin is willing to go, to scotch such a move.

Should a shooting war start between the US and Syrian military, I seriously doubt that Putin is going to lead the Russian Parliament in a stirring rendition of "Kumbyah", where everyone holds hands, and sways to the music.

As much as Russia's Putin may not want to do it, he may feel that his hand has been forced, and he has to act against the US theft of Syrian oil, and its invasion of a sovereign state, where it has absolutely not been invited.

The Russian military response here may well be.... intense.

MSM ADAMANTLY AVOIDS THE WORD “COUP” IN BOLIVIA REPORTING

There has been a military coup in Bolivia backed by violent right-wing rioters and the US government, but you’d hardly know this from any of the mainstream media headlines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the most recent development here, Morales has accepted Mexico's offer of asylum.

Evo Morales leaves Bolivio to take Asylum in Mexico

Folks, the pattern is painfully obvious here; the US government destabilizes an existing government, in a country with resources the US wants and needs, but for the cheapest prices possible; creates a US-centric government; bringa in US-centric corporations to expropriate those resources to which this country has no moral right; and insures that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

Sadly, for this administration and quite awhile before President Trump took office, the "Holy Trinity" of geopolitics for the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika has become destabilization; war and war crimes; and the theft of resources.

I used to think that this country's government was better than this; unfortunately it is not.

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG AND THE “GOOD CLUB”: LEFTIST POLITICS MIRROR MALTHUSIAN POPULATION REDUCTION PLAN

SOURCE: DANIEL TAYLOR, OLD THINKER
THE GLOBALIST PLAN FOR AMERICA AND THE WORLD IS NOTHING MORE THAN A DEATH SENTENCE.
Former Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg has made moves for a possible 2020 Presidential campaign.

Bloomberg has deep ties to the true rulers of the planet, and may play a critical role in the rise of Hillary Clinton in 2020.

He has attended at least 2 secret meetings reported by mainstream media related to an insidious plan to reduce the world’s population. Both meetings were organized by the Gates Foundation.

2009 – New York

In 2009, Bloomberg – along with George Soros, David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Warren Buffett and others – attended a secret meeting in New York at the home of Paul Nurse, who was President of the Rockefeller Foundation at the time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They certainly have the tools to do this right now; don't know about you, but these folks cause the hair on the back of my neck to breakdance (a VERY unusual circumstance, if one is 70 or older, but I digress!) As examples of this, one can cite:

VATICAN CLAIMES THAT UNICEF AND WHO ARE STERILIZING YOUNG GIRLS THROUGH VACCINES

This article goes on to state: "The charges in Kenya, similar to others in Mexico, Nicaragua and the Philippines, led Kenya’s parliamentary Committee of Health to create a Joint Committee of Experts, made of experts from Kenya’s Ministry of Health and the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops, to investigate the conflicting claims, which included government assurances that the tetanus vaccines used in the WHO-UNICEF Vaccination Campaign had been tested and found free of HCG.

The Ministry of Health then refused to provide the Expert Committee with the vaccine vials it claimed to have sampled and tested. The Catholic Bishops did provide the expert committee with nine sample vials that had been used in the WHO-UNICEF campaign. Upon testing, the Expert Committee found that one third of the WHO-UNICEF vials did indeed contain HCG. Separately, 50 tetanus vials that weren’t involved in the WHO-UNICEF campaign were tested and found to be free of HCG."

We now understand that the DTAP vaccine, which is mandatory for US kids now, can cause autism:

FDA Announces That DTap Vaccine Can Cause Autism

So let's inject kids around the world with this vaccine, and see what happens, right, Mr. Bloomberg?!?

And last but not least interesting development here, is the existence of the Federal Vaccine Court, Vaccine Court Pays Billions

If all vaccines were actually as safe as we have been told they are, why has this court, as of December, 2018, shelled out $ 4 billion dollars for the care of vaccine injured kids?!? This article goes on to state: "A chickenpox outbreak at a private school in North Carolina drew extensive national news coverage in November. The thrust of most stories was the public health threat of unvaccinated children and superstitious beliefs about vaccine risks.

But there was little fanfare when, about the same time, an obscure federal program that compensates victims of vaccine injuries passed a milestone. Payouts by the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, or VICP, have now topped $4 billion."

And the "jewel in the crown", in terms of population control, is corn which is modified with the epicyte gene:
GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

The above makes the process sound actually like a planet saving response to overpopulation, until you read the fine print here;

"Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.

'We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies,' said Epicyte president Mitch Hein.

'We have also created corn plants that make antibodies against the herpes virus, so we should be able to make a plant-based jelly that not only prevents pregnancy but also blocks the spread of sexual disease.'

Contraceptive corn is based on research on the rare condition, immune infertility, in which a woman makes antibodies that attack sperm.

'Essentially, the antibodies are attracted to surface receptors on the sperm,' said Hein. 'They latch on and make each sperm so heavy it cannot move forward. It just shakes about as if it was doing the lambada."

One has to wonder just how this "good club" intends to see how all of the above tools are utilized in a human population reduction scheme, which, I am relatively sure, will include massive, endless wars "eliminating the "useless eaters" the world 'round.

BRITISH MI6 AGENT AND FOUNDER OF THE WHITE HELMETS GROUP DIES AFTER "FALLING OFF BALCONY" IN TURKEY

SOURCE: THE GUARDIAN
The British founder of the organisation that trained the Syrian rescue group known as the White Helmets has died in Istanbul.

A spokesman for the White Helmets confirmed on Monday afternoon the death of James Le Mesurier, but said further details were yet to be established.

Le Mesurier, 48, was found dead near his apartment in central Istanbul’s Beyo?lu neighbourhood at around 4.30am. Turkish media reports said he was found with fractures to his head and legs near the building on Monday morning and appeared to have fallen from the balcony of one of the apartments.

The office of Istanbul’s governor said it had commenced a “comprehensive” investigation into the death.

Not every mainstream medical professional is trying to lie about the flu. Most of these people, as a result of their indoctrination, simply assume conventional wisdom is true.

But as you move toward the top of the ladder—for example, public health agencies like the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC)—there are definitely some first-class liars on board.

The information I’m about to spring on you—and I’ve posted this before—is in the category of: HOW CAN THAT BE TRUE? IF THAT WERE TRUE, THEN EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN TOLD AND EVERYTHING I’VE BELIEVED IS INCREDIBLY FALSE. So…buckle up. Here we go...

US Staged Coup d’Etat in Bolivia

by Stephen Lendman

The late William Blum documented CIA coups since WW II.

They’re staged to advance Washington’s aim for unchallenged global dominance. It’s not a pretty picture.

Variations of the same script are used to topple foreign leaders not subservient enough to US interests.

CIA dirty hands orchestrate things — the undemocratic National Endowment for Democracy, USAID, and other US agencies also involved.

Foreign right-wing politicians and military officials are bought like toothpaste to go along with diabolical plots to topple sovereign independent governments, US dark forces wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing them.

Blum explained how the plot works, saying “on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition,” adding:

US War on China by Other Means

All independent nations unwilling to subordinate their sovereign rights to US interests are on its target list for regime change — notably Russia, Iran and China.

The Trump regime initiated Sino/US trade war has nothing to do with trade, everything to do with hardliners in Washington wanting China’s economic, financial, industrial, technological, and military development undermined.

Endless US-orchestrated violence in Hong Kong is one of many examples of how its dark forces aim to disrupt, destabilize, weaken, pressure, and bludgeon other countries to bend to its will.

The Armistice We Need: Time for Vets To Reclaim Veterans’ Day

In the 101 years since the Armistice took effect, on the eleventh minute, of the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month of 1918, the US military has been at war somewhere – even by conservative measures – all but eleven of those years. That pesky number eleven, how it haunts us still. Most Americans may find that statistic shocking, or, in some cases, might simply reject it. And why not? Much of the citizenry learned the nation’s history, taught (at increasingly paltry levels) in public schools. Too often they’re trained to reflexively view the US as a once flawed, but ultimately great – exceptional, even – country. Those pugnacious stats can’t be accurate, many assume, because after all, America isn’t an empire, isn’t a warlike nation. Even in this so-called modern age, such thinking is shockingly pervasive.

War is a Racket by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler

War is a Racket is a book by Maj. General, Smedley Darlington Butler, the most decorated Marine in history, denouncing the military industrial complex. This reenactment video is a compilation of some of his speeches. The two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit the few at the expense of many. Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree. To Hell with war.

And the Armies That Remained Suffer’d: Veterans, Moral Injury and Suicide

by Matthew Hoh

In a 2015 New York Times story a Marine Corps infantry unit that was tracked after coming home from war saw suicide rates among its young men 4 times greater than other young male veterans and 14 times that of civilians. This increased risk of suicide for veterans who served during war holds true for all generations of veterans, including the Greatest Generation. A study in 2010 by The Bay Citizen and New America Media, as reported by Aaron Glantz, found the current suicide rate for WWII veterans to be 4 times higher than for their civilian peers, while VA data, released since 2015, show rates for WWII veterans well elevated above their civilian peers. A 2012 VA study found that Vietnam veterans with killing experiences had twice the odds of suicidal ideation than those with lower or no killing experiences, even after adjusting for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse and depression.

How The Deep State "Justifies" Itself In America

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation,

On October 30th, there was a panel discussion broadcast live on C-Span from the National Press Club and the Michael V. Hayden Center. The discussants were John Brennan, Michael McCabe, John McGlaughlin, and Michael Morrell. They all agreed with the statement by McLaughlin (former Deputy CIA Director) “Thank God for the ‘Deep State’”, and the large audience there also applauded it — nobody booed it.

Former CIA director John McLaughlin on Trump’s impeachment: “Thank God for the deep state”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I have a news flash about these people; for them, it is only a question of whose ox gets gored (in this case, President Trump's); being able to "count coup" on the evils they continue to perpetrate and support (like the US's continued support for the Sultan of Bahrain, who consistently tortures his own citizens, whose only "crime" has been peaceful demonstrations for a constitutional monarchy, because the Navy's 5th Fleet is stationed there); and who gets the money at the end of the day.

One has to wonder just what percentage of their income, comes from the military industrial complex.

Very bluntly put, these are vile sociopaths of the highest order, who are not quite "in the biz of governance", who expect to gain brilliantly financially, by promoting these destabilizations and endless wars, through their work as presstitutes and warmongers.

I wish everyone who "signed on" for this kind of work was required to put all their assets into a blind trust before they accepted their positions in the (alleged) US media, but understand that this will only happen...when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Honor veterans? Then demand arrests of .01% US War Criminals lying our military into OBVIOUS illegal Wars of Aggression that kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions

Current and ongoing US military armed attacks on several nations are the opposite of lawful, and all started with lies known to be false as they are told.

This essay explains, documents and proves illegal and lie-started Wars of Aggression that active US military are trained to refuse engagement because there are no lawful orders for illegal Wars of Aggression.
The costs of these War Crimes include millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted.

US military veterans “served” these illegal attacks by .01% lying sacks-of-spin political and media “leaders.” Obviously, the responsible citizen will demand .01% arrests for War Crimes.

This essay’s central facts was published by The Claremont Colleges after a 2015 international conference for ~2,000 people, and I continue to reframe its contents until the wars are ended.

"Too Many To Count": The Global Persecution Of Christians

Authored by Raymond Ibrahim via The Gatestone Institute,

Today is one of the International Days of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP). Initiated over 20 years ago by the World Evangelical Alliance, 100,000 congregations around the world and millions of Christians participate on this day.

"This November let us unite in prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters," IDOP noted in a brief video that highlights a few examples of recent persecution, including the Easter Sunday church bombings in Sri Lanka and the ongoing slaughter of Christians by Islamic groups in Nigeria and, increasingly, Burkina Faso.

Statistics bear out this grim assertion: "4,136 Christians were killed for faith-related reasons," noted Open Doors in its World Watch List 2019. "On average, that's 11 Christians killed every day for their faith." Additionally, "2,625 Christians were detained without trial, arrested, sentenced and imprisoned" and "1,266 churches or Christian buildings were attacked."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew that the numbers here were grim, but I did not realize that they were this grim.

But looking at these numbers, we cannot forget that Christians clobbering other Christians, for differences in orthodoxy, has happened during this religion's history as well; I am very relieved that, for the most part, Christians have grown up, and this has stopped, and Christians now have a good track record of working with other denominations of Christians toward common goals of "lifting people up, who have fallen by the wayside."

One of the most wonderful opportunities for giving time, and energy, on Oahu, was for a food distribution program, headed up by a wonderful Dominican Nun, and co-sponsored by an equally wonderful person from my Methodist congregation in Aiea.

No one, that I can remember, ever said a nasty word, or put in a dig, to either the Catholics or Protestants who volunteered to help families judged by the State of Hawaii as Food-Insecure. We simply and collectively, had "our eyes on the prize" of making sure that people not only ate a nice meal, when they came, but also had bags of food to take home, with which to feed their families.

New York Rep. Peter King Becomes 20th House Republican To Announce Retirement Plans

Long Island's Peter King has become the 20th House Republican to announce that he will not seek reelection in 2020.

King, a former chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, made the announce in a post on his Facebook page. In his post, the 14-term Congressman said he's tired of spending 4 days a week in Washington, and would like to spend more time at home in Seaford.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what King, and the other 19 Congressional Republican Representatives, see coming, after the 2020 election, and find so offensive and/or terrifying, that they feel they have no other choice than to step down?!?

California fires are Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) attacks: abundant photographic/video evidence explained by retired fire captain and fire fighter

Retired Fire Department Captain John Lord and a fellow retired fire fighter (unwilling to state his full name) have over 60 years’ experience as professionals working with fires. Both explain that recent California fires are the only ones they’ve ever witnessed or ever heard of with these characteristics:

1. Great number of fires starting at the same time.
2. Temperatures two to three times normal.
3. Homes obliterated but leaving surrounding trees and plastic untouched (garbage/recycle cans, plastic lattice, outdoor dog domes).
4. Trees burned at the base only and from the inside out.
5. Evidence of resistance heating with fires started from Smart Meters and metal similar to microwave energy.

Reasons Marijuana Legalization Seems To Be Failing

When it was first proposed, the concept of marijuana legalization seemed solid enough. Take the world’s most popular illicit substance, establish a taxed and regulated marketplace and watch all of the evil associated with the herb – the criminal activity, the youth consumption –fade away into a footnote of American history. And by all accounts, it was a plan that should have worked. After all, we weren’t dealing with a new idea or anything.

FOOD SYSTEM COLLAPSING ACTIVELY, RAPIDLY -- URGENT WARNING

Agriculture is collapsing as propane shortages prevent US farmers from drying their crops, just the latest blow in a record wet year. Failures of seed crops presage a difficult 2020 season. Australia's drought forces ranchers to cull cattle -- even breeding stock -- an UNRECOVERABLE loss of priceless genetics. Christian steps back today to explore how the blows to global agriculture are part of the plan: an open, anti-human depopulation agenda. Start growing. Start preparing. Spread the word. Now. This means you.

Israel’s Supreme Court — Upholding “Targeted Assassinations” and Torture

Time and again, Israel’s high court upholds human and civil rights abuses committed by the state.

In 2006, the court upheld its targeted assassinations policy, claiming they’re OK when no other choices exist to protect against dangers to national security — that don’t exist it failed to say.

The policy contravenes Israeli law, the laws of war, and human rights law. Time and again, Israel falsely calls legitimate self-defense by Palestinians “terrorism,” unjustifiably justifying its lawless actions, most often upheld by its high court.

In Public Committee against Torture in Israel et al v. the Government of Israel et al (1999), Israel’s Supreme Court banned the practice it earlier OK’d, ruling “psychological pressure (and) a moderate degree of physical pressure” are permissible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in World War II, there was a German interrogator by the name of Hanns Scharff. Bio: Hanns Scharff

Scharff never once resorted to violence, but in an absolutely perfect English, would persuade the men he questioned, that he already knew who they were, and what they did, and frequently took them on day passes for cultural events.

The most interesting thing here, is that he managed to get precisely the information he wanted in this way.

After the war, this man was so respected by the American military that they invited him to teach his methods to the American military; (yes, the guy was that good!).

Unfortunately, those lessons learned from Scharff's techniques have been absolutely abandoned by both the US and Israeli military.

There are some very emotionally sick individuals who get off on causing extreme pain, perhaps maiming the tortured for life, and these are generally the people who wind up doing it, not because it gives them actionable information, but because they like to really hurt other people.

53 Million Americans Drowning In Cycle Of Low-Wage Work 

For instance, a new report sheds light on 53 million Americans, or about 44% of all US workers, aged 18 to 64, are considered low-wage and low-skilled.

Many of these folks are stuck in the gig economy, making approximately $10.22 per hour, and they bring home less than $20,000 per year, according to a Brookings Institution report.

An overwhelmingly large percentage of these folks have insurmountable debts if that are student loans, auto loans, and or credit card debt. Their wages don't cover their debt servicing payments as their lives will be left in financial ruin after the next recession.

While the top 10% of Americans are partying like it's 1999, most of whom own assets, like stocks, bonds, and real estate, are greatly prospering off the Federal Reserve's serial asset bubble-blowing scheme and President Trump's stock market pumping on Twitter.

Today's artificial economy isn't working for everyone as the wealth inequality gap swells to crisis levels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And while President Trump keeps chanting his "mantra" about the economy being "great", it is, unfortunately, only "great for the already monied.

There are many moments when President Trump appears to be absolutely, totally tone-deaf to the real needs and concerns of ordinary working people who have, through absolutely no fault of their own, found that their decent-paying job, enabling them to enjoy a middle class lifestyle, has been offshored/outsourced by corporations which relocate internationally, and pay pennies on the dollar for that country's labor.

US Threatens Sanctions On Serbia, Scrambles To Thwart Possible S-400 Purchase

In a largely unreported but hugely important story that played out this week in the Balkans, Washington is putting immense pressure on Serbia to shelve future plans for acquiring Russia's advanced S-400 air defense missile systems.

The controversy began Wednesday when Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told a public television broadcaster in an interview that he had a desire to purchase the S-400 but lacked the funding to do so, and at one point said "Serbia was ready to accept S-400s from Russia as a gift," according to TASS.

"You know, when you have such a weapon, no one would attack you. Neither US nor any other pilots fly where S-400s are operational: Israeli pilots do not fly either over Turkey or Syria, except for the Golan Heights. We have aviation, which the strongest than ever before. We will be strengthening the air defense with Pantsyr systems and other things, which are not on the sanctions list," Vucic said in the interview.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Mr. President, a word, please: we know that Russia's S-400 performs brilliantly in the field.

That having been said, weaponry from American companies has been deployed by American forces and their allies long before they were really ready; the example that comes to mind, Mr. President, is that of the Lockheed-Martin F-35.

https://www.defensenews.com/air/2019/06/12/the-pentagon-is-battling-the-clock-to-fix-serious-unreported-f-35-problems/

and BTW, I really need to ask; what were this company's contributions to your campaign in 2016?!?

Is THAT why these flaws have not yet been addressed?!? Because your campaign took the money on the promise that these issues would be fixed by the time you took your Oath of Office in 2017?!? Sir, if in fact, that was the case, you got lied to, big-time.

This is precisely why no weaponry company should ever, EVER, be allowed to contribute to Presidential campaigns, because it makes their CEOS more "relaxed" by problems which should have been fixed before the Pentagon ever signed off and using it in real warfare situations.

Just asking, Mr. President..because NONE of our men and women in uniform deserve shoddy weapons when called by Congress to go to war; not one, thank you very much.

Only Donald Trump Can Save American Democracy and Only with Our Support

It is a Constitutional Republic PCR! Otherwise a great article.

Now that the “quid pro quo gate” hoax has collapsed, like the Russiagate hoax, the presstitutes are inventing a new quid pro quo hoax. It wasn’t money that Trump dangled before the Ukrainian president in exchange for an investigation of Ukraine’s contribution to the Russiagate hoax. It was a presidential visit to Ukraine. I listened to the latest CIA-directed presstitute plot unfold today on NPR. Three semi-males devoid of integrity did their best to substitute a visit to Ukraine by Trump for the unsubstantiated promise of money. The visit is all third hand as there is no mention of such a visit in the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky. The impeachment hoax now rests on unverifiable alleged conversations between Trump aides and Zelensky aides that Trump will honor Ukraine with a visit if Ukraine reopens the investigation.

NYT Says We Need Refugees to Fill ‘Void of Cultural Diversity’ in Towns That Are Too White

Even though White children are a minority in the US school system and most major cities have been ethnically cleansed of a White majority, there are still some towns that are not diverse enough for our jewish supremacist overlords. The New York Times has argued that refugees need to be resettled across rural America, into areas that are a “void of cultural diversity” (too White).

Global Debt Tops $188,000,000,000,000 – Officially The Biggest Debt Bubble The World Has Ever Seen

Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com,

The world is now 188 trillion dollars in debt, and that number continues to grow rapidly each year.

It is a form of enslavement that is deeply insidious, because most of those living on the planet do not even understand how the system works, and even if they did most of them would have absolutely no hope of ever getting free from it. The borrower is the servant of the lender, and the global financial system is designed to funnel as much wealth to the top 0.1% as possible. Of course throughout human history there has always been slavery, and the primary motivation for having slaves is to extract an economic benefit from those that are enslaved. And even though most of us don’t like to think of ourselves as “slaves” today, the truth is that the global elite are extracting more wealth from all of us than ever before. So much of our labor is going to make them wealthy, and yet most people don’t even realize what is happening.

"Clients With Guns" Are Demanding Deposits From Crisis-Stricken Lebanese Banks

Here we go as predicted: the Lebanese central bank attempts to prevent a "panic mode" scramble on the part of the public to remove all deposits, and the recently imposed (unofficial) regulations geared toward staving off capital flight are predictably failing fast, per Reuters:

“Clients with guns have entered banks and security guards have been afraid to speak to them as when people are in a state like this you don’t know how people will act.”

Lebanon's private banks reopened a week ago on Friday following a two-week closure due to massive anti-government protests which created gridlock across the country's main cities, including closure of other public institutions such as schools.

The World Bank weighed in on Friday, urging leaders in Beirut to form new Cabinet within a week, citing risks to Lebanon's stability as "deeply concerning," according to the AP.

Hong Kong Student Dies From Injuries In First Fatality Linked To Protests

In what appears to be the first death of a protester stemming from the aggressive police tactics, a young student has died after sustaining a serious head injury during a fall from the third floor of a car park to the second while police carried out an aggressive dispersion operation to end a protest

According to the SCMP, Chow Tsz-lok, a second year computer science undergraduate student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology fell from the car park in Tseung Kwan O as police fired off rounds of tear gas on Monday.

California's Housing Nightmare Is Only Getting Worse

When historians look back on contemporary California, one thing they'll be bound to make note of is that the state's developers bet on the wrong model.

Endless, suburban sprawl is coming back to haunt California in ways both major and minor. In densely populated communities across the state, traffic is horrible thanks to underdeveloped public transportation (this is especially true in LA). Most residents have accepted that deadly, devastating wildfires are just part of the deal now - bound to recur endlessly until the state's population shrinks to the point that it no longer intermingles with the state's vast swaths of woodland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although Mike and I met and married in Southern California, we have absolutely no desire to live there anymore.

America's Endless Wars: "At West Point, Graduation Day Felt More Like A Tragedy Than A Triumph"

Authored by US Army Major Danny Sjursen (ret.) via TheNation.com,

Patches, pins, medals, and badges are the visible signs of an exclusive military culture, a silent language by which soldiers and officers judge each other’s experiences, accomplishments, and general worth. In July 2001, when I first walked through the gate of the US Military Academy at West Point at the ripe young age of 17, the “combat patch” on one’s right shoulder - evidence of a deployment with a specific unit - had more resonance than colorful medals like Ranger badges reflecting specific skills. Back then, before the 9/11 attacks ushered in a series of revenge wars “on terror,” the vast majority of officers stationed at West Point didn’t boast a right shoulder patch. Those who did were mostly veterans of modest combat in the first Gulf War of 1990–91. Nonetheless, even those officers were regarded by the likes of me as gods. After all, they’d seen “the elephant.”

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella

Facebook announced on Friday that it would be removing an posts which name alleged Trump-Ukraine whistleblower Eric Ciaramella.

"We are removing any and all mentions of the potential whistleblower’s name and will revisit this decision should their name be widely published in the media or used by public figures in the debate," Facebook said in a statement in which they claim it violates their "coordinating harm" policy which prohibits content 'outing of witness, informant, or activist.'

On Wednesday, the social media giant removed ads naming Ciaramella which had been viewed several hundred thousand times according to the Washington Post.

On Friday, Breitbart's Allum Bohkari reported that the news outlet's posts containing references to Ciaramella had been scrubbed from the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frankly, this is precisely what we can expect henceforward from the Zuk, the Malnificent's "Facebook"; since the 4th estate in this country has been defined as "journalism, or what passes for it in this country today", the 5th estate has become that of both the cybersurveillence, and cyber-scrubbing ordered by the US Deep State; folks, it is just that simple.

Zuk the Malnificent, through Facebook, is simply a tool of the US Deep State; nothing more and nothing less.

Thirst for Justice: America’s Struggle for Clean Water: Pollution, poisoning and the loss of human life due to unsafe water are the accepted costs of doing business in America.

Somehow I’d ended up on a plastic mattress in a tiny prison cell wearing the infamous orange jump suit. I’d been arrested once before in Egypt during the revolution as a journalist, but now I was in Wisconsin, America, where freedom of speech is enshrined in the constitution. I’d considered myself safe there.

I had been arrested whilst filming a small, peaceful protest by mainly Indigenous Ojibwe people against the construction of a new oil pipeline. I was working on a documentary film on America’s struggle for clean water.

Controversial pipelines

Enbridge’s Line 3 will carry 760,000 barrels per day of tar sands oil from Canada, across the American border to a refinery on Lake Superior, Wisconsin. Almost as much oil as the controversial Keystone XL.

The Vaccine Deep State. Impacts of Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines

The media refuses to accept that those who have been vaccine damaged, or who have children who will suffer for the remainder of their lives from adverse vaccine events, have a legitimate right to speak their truth rather than being labeled as hysterical or crazy. All of these individuals and parents were pro-vaccine until they or their child became vaccine-injured. Similarly we saw the New York Times manufacturing consent for accepting falsehoods that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. And this was true across the mainstream outlets including the Washington Post, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others. The Times fabricated that rationale to the public on behalf of the neocons in the Bush administration who were determined to have a war. None of the journalists publishing these lies have taken responsibility nor lost a night’s sleep because their fakery led to the death of millions.

Substandard Education in America

The quality of American education, as we will see, is far lower than the world has been led to believe, and the quality in China is in many cases much superior to that in the US. Americans might care to ask why it is that Chinese elementary or high school students moving to the US are often promoted by one or two grades. The reason is that they know so much more than their American counterparts they would suffer terminal boredom if forced to remain at their prior grade level. If we refer to the PISA tests, Shanghai’s math scores were 119 above the OECD average, or the equivalent of nearly three years of schooling, with reading and science exceeding the OECD average by about 1.5 years of schooling. And in some cases, the American students were behind the OECD average by approximately the same number of years as the Chinese were ahead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this cannot be seen in any possible light but that of a deliberate push by the US government to keep its people illiterate; innumerate; and incapable of critical thinking.

Father of Julian Assange Fears His Son Will Die in Prison: UN Rapporteur on Torture Warned Assange May Lose his Life

John Shipton, the father of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told reporters on Friday that he needs to “face the bitter truth” that his son “may die in jail.” Shipton spoke with reporters in Geneva two days after he visited Assange in Belmarsh prison in London.

“This is not the bitter disappointment of a father, this is simply fact,” Shipton said. “Julian may die in jail over a nine-year persecution for revealing the truth of war crimes. It is beyond obscene.”

Shipton’s comments come a week after UN special rapporteur on torture Nils Melzer said, “Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life.” Melzer has previously warned that Assange had been subject to psychological torture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I believe that Assange's dad is absolutely, horrifically correct.

Assange's info has never been hit as falsification; he has simply been a "thorn in the side" of the US government, and I cannot for a moment doubt, that he has been the victim of both physical and psychological torture, while held at Belmarsh.

IF he does make it into an American prison (which I sincerely doubt will happen), he will, most likely, be too ill to speak in his own defense, and wind up dead of some weaponized disease, one of the effects of which is hallucinatory behaviour and thoughts, which will become part and parcel of how his "legacy" will be screwed by the US/British intelligence agencies in years to come, for telling the truth.

More Iraqi Protesters Killed, Sistani Says Time for Govt to Meet DemandsSistani aide: No longer can government procrastinate

Iraqi security forces continued to crack down on protests Friday, with security forces killing at least 10 people in Basra, where the protesters have been keeping the country’s main Gulf port closed for days.

Live gunfire and killing protesters hasn’t worked in the past, nor is there any sign it’s going to work here. The biggest issue is likely to be Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani’s sermon, which is now saying the government must immediately meet demands of protesters.

The top religious leader in Iraq, Sistani has long warned against using force against the protesters, and now says it is time to just meet the demands of the protesters immediately. His aide Sheikh Abdul Mahdi al-Karbalaie, added that their position is that the Iraqi government can not “procrastinate on this issue because of the great risks facing the country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To Iraq's Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani, I have three words for you, and they are BLESS YOU SIR!!

Speaking out against corruption in government is not an easy task (and trust me, sir, as an American, I do know just a tiny bit about this); I understand that this took a lot of moral courage on your part, but you absolutely did the right thing here.

Because if policy makers in Baghdad do not listen to you, we may well be looking at a bloody revolution in Iraq, with a government permanently aligned with other than American interests, and that influence would most likely coming from...Iran.

Unfortunately, the Iranian-born Shiite Cleric, Muktada Al Sadr, whose party created a significant coalition in the last Parliamentary elections, is now seen as part of the problem, because his influence really did nothing to create a cure for Iraq's corruption, even though he has railed against it frequently.

Pentagon’s East Syria Operation About More Than Taking the Oil

Whether to control the oil or flat out take the oil, US statements on the new military mission in Syria are heavily oil-themed. Other reports, however, suggest that the operation is a lot more complicated than that.

In reality, a lot of the goal is nation-building, with US forces meant to both keep the Syrian government out of this part of Syria, and try to “bring prosperity” to the region, propping up a potential territory of rebels.

This is again built around the assumption that the US can manufacture an autonomous, prosperous region, using the oilfields as the revenue source, and then steer that region toward hostility with the rest of Syria.

This will likely end up being a plan easier for the Trump Administration to sell than overt theft of oil, as it allows the US to retain its primary focus, military hostility toward Syria with an eye toward eventual regime change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) to those in the Pentagon who actually believe that this is a reasonable, logical way of moving forward in Syria; I really don't know if you need a hug, some calcium magnesium; some milk and a happy-ending bedtime story, or at least one American, a Christian pacifist activist, who never encourages violence (folks, that's me) to gently suggest to you that such an approach is completely, as in barking-dog mad, rubber-room-esque insane.

What homogeneous group are you going to give this region to, now that the Kurds have pledged fealty to the Syrian government?!?

The Kurds’ commander in chief explains why his forces are finally ready to partner with Assad and Putin.

My big question is, how long Russia's Putin will be willing to put up with this foolishness before Russian (plus Kurdish plus Syrian) troops uncork on US positions in Syria?!?

And folks, for me, that is the ultimate nightmare scenario. The two headlines right under this at antiwar.com, give me no comfort on this issue either.

Pentagon Claims US Authority to Shoot Any Syrian Govt Official Who Tries to Take Control of Syrian Oil and the headline under this, Erdogan: Turkey Won’t Leave Syria Until Every Other Country Does: Says Turkey will not let up on offensive against Kurdish militants

Does the US position here even remotely resemble a reasonable, sane, responsible,and moral moment of conflict resolution?!?

The short answer, of course, is: HELL, NO!!!

Jim Jordan Hit With 'Jerkoff-Gate' Hours Before Joining Impeachment Panel

Update: Despite 'masturgate' - Jordan was appointed to the House Intelligence Committee on Friday.

Days before his anticipated appointment to the House's leading impeachment panel, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has been hit with a new allegation that he ignored a 1994 complaint claiming that an Ohio State University sports doctor jerked off in a shower in front of a referee, according to NBC News.

The curiously timed allegation is contained in a lawsuit filed Thursday by 43 accusers who claim Ohio State's "ingrained culture of institutional indifference" enabled their sexual abuse. The doctor, Richard Strauss, is accused of "drugging and raping athletes" as he preyed on underage athletes. He died in 2005 and was later found to have sexually abused 177 male students over two decades.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...CURIOUSLY TIMED..." MY ASTROLABE!!

The point of the timing was to completely prevent Jordan from being appointed to the House Intelligence Committee which, thankfully, did not happen; I am reminded, at this moment, of that statement of Oscar Wilde, about "Revenge is a dish served best cold".

What the Democrats, or Bunglingcrats, as i now describe them, have managed to do, here is get to Representative Jordan furious enough to be able to rip this whole inquiry to shreds, and right in front of the American people.

One has to wonder what the statute of limitations is in Ohio, or wherever this lawsuit was filed, in light of the fact that these allegations happened over 25 years ago, and Dr. Strauss died 19 years ago.

The curious timeline for taking down Trump

It’s three full years since President Trump was elected.

Among those who predicted he could never win the election — or that he might have been conspiring with Hillary Clinton all along, worked for Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, would crash the U.S. stock market his first week in office, would ban all Muslims, would send illegal immigrants home en masse on buses and trains, and would start a nuclear war — there have been real concerns.

But to others, there are different concerns that have borne out. We continue to get evidence of an orchestrated effort among government insiders and the well-connected to take down President Trump at all costs. The public evidence indicates that the effort was hatched even before he took office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this madness is still playing out in Foggy Bottom, demonstrates the lengths to which the Dementocrats will go, to bring this Presidency down, and right the hell now.

Because without a clear, viable contender from the Democratic Party to run against him, Trump is very likely to win handily in 2020.
