‘Still too much’: Clintons’ speaking tour prices slashed, available for less than $14

US attempt to topple Venezuelan govt by force would lead to grave consequences – Lavrov

Washington’s “irresponsible” plan to overthrow the Caracas government by force would result in a catastrophe, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has warned, calling on the US to stick to the international law on Venezuela.

Lavrov denounced “an unprecedented campaign led by the US and aimed at toppling Venezuela’s legitimate government.” What Venezuela needs right now is political dialogue, not power grab attempts, the Russian minister said.

Superjet-100 plane BOUNCED, hit ground, BURST its engines during landing – leaked CCTV footage

Leaked security camera footage shows the ill-fated landing attempt of Sukhoi Superjet-100 at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport. The jet bounces and then smacks into the tarmac, rupturing its undercarriage and bursting into a fireball.

The footage of the crash-landing was captured by an airport security video camera and uploaded to Telegram channel Baza. It shows the aircraft attempting to land at speed, but then bouncing off the runway. Another touchdown attempt is made seconds later, but the plane’s undercarriage apparently collapses, smashing its engines and triggering a massive fireball.

I Dare You To Tell Me The Economy Is “Booming” After Reading This List Of 19 Facts About Our Current Economic Performance

After taking an honest look at the facts, I don’t know how anyone can possibly claim that the U.S. economy is “booming”. I really don’t. We hear this sort of rhetoric from the mainstream media all the time, but it doesn’t make any sense. As I discussed yesterday, nobody should be using the term “booming” to describe the state of the U.S. economy until we have a full year when GDP growth is 3 percent or better, and at this point we haven’t had that since the middle of the Bush administration. And as you will see below, the latest numbers are clearly telling us that the U.S. economy is not even moving in the right direction.

UK Transports 700 Kg of Highly Enriched URANIUM to US

For years, Dounreay in Scotland, where the UK’s former centre of nuclear fast reactor research and development was located, received nuclear material from abroad for reprocessing. However, London has been flying its stocks across the Atlantic since 2016, when the Nuclear Security Summit took place in Washington, DC.

It has been announced that the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority and the US Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) have completed a project designed to transfer around 700 kg of highly enriched uranium (HEU) from northern Scotland to the US for reprocessing.

The batches of radioactive material from the Dounreay site were transported to Wick John O'Groats Airport and sent to the US with Boeing C-17 military transport jets, the BBC reports. The shipments of highly enriched uranium have been delivered to the US since 2016 as part of London’s commitment to the Nuclear Security Summit that took place in Washington that year.

Churchill Sent 2 Mil Russian Refugees to Certain Death at End of WWII

We recently stumbled across this remarkable article from 1988! in the journal Imprimis, and when we read it, we could scarcely believe our eyes. When we started asking people about it, we heard different things - one person said this has been disproven, others said it was true and that they knew eye-witnesses who were deported.

Apparently the British government sued Tolstoy when he made these charges in an attempt to shut him up. We don't know if the charges are true or not, but it makes for extraordinary reading, and I appeal to people who know something about this to please help us fill out our knowledge in the comments section below. It is situations like this where our commentors are simply invaluable.

Boon Times For Auction Houses As American Farmers Go Bankrupt

In an earlier report, our analysis of federal data showed the number of farmers across the Midwest filing for bankruptcy soared to its highest level in a decade. Now it seems some of those farmers are closing up shop, liquidating machinery and land, all to stem financial pressure, a dozen or so farm-equipment auction houses told Reuters.

Is ruling in the genes? All presidents bar one are directly descended from a medieval English king

What do Barack Obama, Thomas Jefferson, George W. Bush and the other past U.S. presidents have in common? Besides holding the coveted title of commander-in-chief, it appears that all of them but one are cousins.

The remarkable discovery was made by 12-year-old BridgeAnne d’Avignon, of Salinas, California, who created a ground-breaking family tree that connected 42 of 43 U.S. presidents to one common, and rather unexpected, ancestor: King John of England.

‘They all have the trait of wanting power,’ d’Avignon told the station WFMY.

King John, also known as John ‘Lackland’, is renowned for signing the Magna Carta in 1215, which limited the monarch’s power and helped form the British Parliament.

John’s other claim to fame, or infamy, is that he was depicted as the villain in the Robin Hood tales.

Tourists from USA, Germany, Holland, Sweden and Switzerland are trapped
They are unable to leave hotel in Uglii, Mongolia during Black Death outbreak
It has already killed a husband and a pregnant wife with tourists stuck in hotel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The CDC has had a vaccine for this since 1982.

Plague Vaccine"

For anyone thinking about traveling to this part of the planet, please co-ordinate any vaccination with your health care professional before you go.

Here us what the CDC says about this vaccine:

"Plague vaccine is a vaccine used against Yersinia pestis. Killed bacteria have been used since 1890 but are less effective against pneumonic plague so that recently live vaccines of an attenuated type and recombination protein vaccines have been developed to prevent the disease."

After this outbreak, I sincerely hope that the Mongolians can purchase, and stockpile this, so that if it happens again, their people (and the tourists who come here) can be protected.

I'm not an anti-vaxxer; but with bubonic plague, I wouldn't want to mess around with this disease.

Israel kill Hamas commander in airstrike and 'prepares Gaza ground invasion' as it hits back after 600 militant rockets kill four and injure 66

An Israeli man, 58, became the first citizen to be killed in the Middle East hostilities since the 2014 war.

Seven Palestinians, including a pregnant mother and her baby daughter, were also reportedly killed.

Israeli PM Netanyahu said Hamas is paying a 'heavy price' and has ordered ground troops up to Gaza's border.

Three Israelis, including an 80-year-old woman, were also wounded by rocket fire in the weekend of combat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People who have been following the demonstrations at the border knew that this was coming; it was only a matter of time, until the israeli military felt that the "optics" of such an invasion would most probably be seen as a "Justified retaliation" by the rest of the world.

And this time, the IDF is going to kill as many innocent non-combatants as humanly possible; it will be a no holds barred situation, and the Israelis will not negotiate a cease fire this time.

MAJOR: Inside How The Coup Was Foiled – Venezuela’s Army Chief Padrino TRICKED Trump & Abrams

Head of Venezuela’s armed forces, Padrino, entirely conned Abrams, and the April 30th event was supposed to be major with Padrino backing it. This explanation below uses all the facts, including official statements, and puts them all together. It also is based on highly reputable Spanish sources. Moreover this conforms to how CSS already understands regime-change operations to have been foiled in various places, and significantly as we have written before, in 2002 in Venezuela itself. That is why it is necessary for the military intelligence to work on coup operations, so that they can reverse them.

Nancy Pelosi fears Trump won't 'respect the election' if he loses by a small margin in 2020 and says the President will 'poison the public mind'

Nancy Pelosi is already anticipating that Trump will not be gracious in defeat if he loses the 2020 presidential election by a slim margin.

Speaking to the New York Times, the Speaker of the House says that the Democrats need to win by a landslide so Trump will step down from the presidency without challenging the results.

'If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he's not going to respect the election,' Pelosi says. 'We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that.'

It would not be unlike Trump, who - even in victory - claimed during the 2016 presidential election that 'millions of people' illegally voted for opponent Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nancy is projecting again.

Joe Biden says he ‘doesn’t have time’ to lay out his healthcare plan

As Joe Biden storms through Iowa and prepares for his first visit as a presidential candidate in South Carolina, the Democratic front-runner has said he doesn’t “have the time” to lay out the details of his healthcare plan.

“I don’t have time; I don’t want to keep you standing any longer,” Mr Biden said recently in Iowa City, declining to lay out his vision for America’s healthcare future to the assembled crowd, according to POLITICO.

Likewise Mr Biden has been less than exhaustive when it comes to his other plans, be it foreign policy, or how to tackle climate change.

When Joe Biden was young he tried to prostitute himself to big donors they told him to come back when you’re 40!

Joe Biden had a moment of honesty in unearthed video that is surfacing that he did not have access to large donors when he was younger but he was more than willing to submit to their will .

Now that Biden has served the Obama administration, and served a long career in politics ,he’s no longer a spring chicken( meaning young ) you best bet that he has submitted to the will of the donors . Biden is more than willing to prostitute and put out for them ! Is he a good choice to be President ?

Emma Thompson the first-class hypocrite! Actress is pictured dining on champagne and beef in £18,000 personal booth on carbon-spewing BA plane jetting to New York days after lecturing us all to stop flying

Left-wing actress Dame Emma Thompson was branded a ‘first-class hypocrite’ last night after jetting to New York just days after backing climate protests that brought chaos to London.

The Jeremy Corbyn supporter took her personal booth in the luxury cabin of a British Airways flight from Heathrow to JFK on Friday morning after earlier demanding: ‘We should all fly less.’

First-class BA flights to New York cost up to £18,000 and generate nearly two tons of carbon dioxide – the main driver of climate change – for each passenger in the elite cabin.

Onlookers claim the multi-millionaire activist also drank Laurent-Perrier champagne and dined on beef carpaccio – even though cattle farming is also a major contributor to greenhouse gasses.

How Russia Became Involved with Ukraine Part 3

Despite being vastly outgunned and out-manned by Ukrainian ultra-right militias and the Ukrainian military, Eastern Ukrainians were managing to not only defend themselves but also to drive Western Ukrainian forces back. This led many to speculate as to whether or not Russia had committed troops to support the Eastern Ukrainian rebels against Kiev. Western media and the governments it speaks for began crowing about Russian troops in Ukraine and “Russian aggression.” Russia, for its part, denied any involvement beyond humanitarian shipments to civilians.

The truth is somewhat murkier, however.

While Russian involvement at this point has been completely defensive, there is also undoubtedly Russian involvement.

The Company Store

This model was simple enough to understand. “Pay” your workers with scrip vouchers, then sell them your marked up goods at the company store, pocketing a nice profit. On top of that, force your employees to live in company housing, too, also at terms very favorable to the company.

Add it all up and the workers found themselves in perpetual service to their employer. No matter how hard and long they toiled, there was nothing left for their own private benefit after all was said and done. The company succeeded in skimming off any and all ‘excess’ for itself.

This vast unfairness eventually led to the formation of unions as well as to regulations providing protection to the workers.

Firefox 66.0.4 Almost Ready With Fix for Disabled Addons

Mozilla Firefox 66.0.4 is being prepped for release and contains a fix for the expired intermediate signing certificate that caused everyone's addons to be disabled on Friday.

On Friday, Mozilla allowed an intermediate certificate to expire that is used to sign Firefox addons. As Firefox requires addons to be signed by a valid certificate, once the certificate expired, users suddenly found all of their Firefox addons disabled.

As a temporary fix, Mozilla issued an extension through their Normandy Study system that installed a new intermediate signing certificate. Once the hotfix was installed, addons would automatically be enabled again.

Firefox Extensions Are Broken -- Here's What To Do

Firefox extensions have been broken for many users since Friday 3 May after Mozilla failed to renew a security certificate.

...

In order to be able to provide the temporary fix at short notice on a weekend, Mozilla is using the “studies” system – an unusual mechanism that you may have disabled.

You can check if you have studies enabled by going to Firefox Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Allow Firefox to install and run studies.

Mozilla says it is now working on a general fix that doesn’t need to rely on this mechanism.

But the temporary fix doesn’t work for all Firefox users: for example those that use Android, the Tor browser, or the Extended Support Release of Firefox. At the same time, the fix can take up to six hours to work on your browser.

Scott Adams: 85% of CNN’s Political Coverage, Deserving Sports

Chernobyl, Gen 1 safety systems, primitive 1960s era
Gen 3 nuclear designs are safer by design and time proven
Gen 4 nuclear designs have even safer concepts
430 rockets fired from Gaza into Israel
Israel in response, “mowed the lawn”
Demands to jail AG Barr…because CNN can’t read
Was it an organized coup plot to take out President Trump?
Lots of questions for top people like Brennan and Clapper

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK: PART OF A LARGER OPERATION TO DESTROY ALTERNATIVE MEDIA

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO
While doing research for a Newsbud video, I came across the Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) website. This is one of a growing number of “fact checking” websites designed to discredit news websites not following official narratives closely enough.

Here’s what the site has to say about Newsbud and my participation:

Newsbud (NB) is a right wing, conspiracy and anti-government site founded by, among others, Kurt Nimmo, the former lead editor and writer for Infowars. What sets NB apart from other sites of this type is that the stories are, for the most part, well written and contain numerous sources. The bias of the writing is also more subtle than sites such as Infowars, but just as prevalent. Both as an overtone to all the stories as well as the sometimes questionable sources and / or the conclusions drawn from the source material. Additionally, many of their sources are other NB stories, or work the author and editors have done elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kurt Nimmo is one blogger for whom Mike and I have a great deal of respect, and we link to his articles frequently.

JFK CONFRONTED ISRAEL OVER ITS SECRET NUCLEAR PROGRAM

Avner Cohen and Bill Burr are two of the best historians on the secret Israeli nuclear program of the 1960s, which made Israel the Middle East’s first nuclear power.

Seal of Mossad – Israeli Foreign Intelligence
It almost didn’t happen. In a brief for the non-profit National Security Archives and an article for Haaretz.com,Cohen and Burr explain that the program was almost shut down. President John F. Kennedy confronted Israeli leaders in the summer of 1963 demanding stringent inspections.

Throughout the spring and summer of 1963, the leaders of the United States and Israel – President John F. Kennedy and Prime Ministers David Ben-Gurion and Levi Eshkol – were engaged in a high-stakes battle of wills over Israel’s nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; was this one of the reasons for Kennedy's assassination?!?

ANALYSTS CONFIRM NORTH KOREA LAUNCHED FIRST BALLISTIC MISSILE SINCE 2017

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
Analysts have studied a report from North Korea's Korean Central News Agency, which was accompanied by a few images, and determined that the "projectile" fired by North Korea Saturday morning, was, in fact, a short-range ballistic missile.

In addition to images released by KCNA, independent analysts managed to capture images of the launch.

Court strikes down Ohio GOP's House gerrymander and orders fairer 2020 map

On Friday, a federal district court delivered a major win against Republican gerrymandering when it struck down Ohio's congressional map for violating the constitutional rights of Democratic voters. The court ordered legislators to devise a new map by June 14 for the 2020 elections that would be much fairer than the existing lines. If lawmakers don't pass a new map, or if the Republicans—who have total control over state government—simply pass a new replacement gerrymander, the court itself could draw its own districts.

Iran sentences president's brother to prison for corruption

Hossein Fereydoun, younger brother of Hassan Rouhani, vows to appeal 'politically motivated' ruling.

A court in Iran has sentenced President Hassan Rouhani's younger brother to an unspecified jail term in a corruption case that supporters of the Iranian leader allege is politically motivated.

Hossein Fereydoun, who is also a close confidante of the president, has vowed to appeal the sentence, local media reported on Saturday.

"This person [Hossein Fereydoun] was found not guilty on some charges, while he was sentenced to prison on other accusations," Hamidreza Hosseini, a judiciary official, was quoted as saying by state news agency IRNA

The trial of Fereydoun, along with six co-defendants, began in February without the judiciary giving details of the charges.

ISRAELI ENVOY CALLS FOR CRIMINALIZING ANTISEMITISM AFTER NYT CARTOON

The only way to stop antisemitism is to criminalize it, Israel's Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon told reporters in New York on Monday. "The time for talking and having a conversation is over," Danon said. "What Israel and the Jewish community around the world demand is action - and now." Danon, speaking on the sidelines of the United Nations Security Council meeting, said that those who engage in antisemitism "must be punished. Whether it is here at the UN [or by] political leaders, editors, policy pundits or college professors, it does not matter. "Antisemitism should have no place in our society," he continued. "Until it becomes criminal, this bigotry will persist; it will fester. It is only a matter of time until it erupts again in violence and bloodshed."
