DICTATORSHIP | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

DICTATORSHIP

Mass shootings in 2018 killed 68 Americans and the mass media freaked out; ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS murdered 2,000 people – MSM silent

(Natural News) It’s astonishing how at least 200 million Americans have no clue what’s really going on in this country regarding deaths caused by illegal immigrants, prescription medications, vaccines, hospital superbugs (think MRSA), chemotherapy, and hospital surgery errors. That’s because the mainstream media, a.k.a. MSM, purposely fails to report any of it.

What most people fail to realize also is that nearly every TV station and newspaper is biased news that covers up all the atrocities caused by whatever makes the corporations money or ensures more people voting for Democrats (Socialism and “free stuff”). Every year in America, illegal immigrants flood across the border, bringing with them drugs, crime, infectious diseases, and likely votes for more crooked Democrat politicians. Though some illegal aliens are innocent humans seeking a better life, many are also criminals who will rob, rape, and kill to “get theirs.”

9/11 HIJACKERS: SAUDI 'DON'T ASK, DON'T SEE' POLICY REVEALED

ith the US renewing its controversial “alliance” with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, with oil production in the Kingdom under siege, and talk of war against Iran ramping up, the thorny issue of the Saudi role in the 9/11 terrorist attacks remains uncomfortably in the background.

For 18 years now, investigative journalists have faced daunting obstacles in seeking answers about the 9/11 attacks. Of the 19 hijackers, 15 were Saudi citizens. Perhaps the greatest hurdle comes when asking about connections between the hijackers and high-ranking Saudi Arabian officials.

Redactions, delays, denials, misdirection, and conflicting statements show a pattern — all of it in one direction and, intentionally or not, to the benefit of the Kingdom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is also interesting to note, that Prince Bandar bin Sultan. died in July of this year; of course, there were the requisite condolences from various heads of state, etc., but there is very little said, about how the man actually died.

I would tend to politely suggest, that his death was not a "family affair" where close family were quietly ushered into a clean, caring hospice environment, with all the modern "bells and whistles" existed, to usher him into the next "kingdom" with prayer. The net is rife with speculation on this, but there are is a reasonable possibility which may, in retrospect, make sense, looking at how he had positioned himself both personally, and professionally, both within the government of the House of Saud, and as one very familiar with those who ascended the very top Tier in the Bowels of Power in the US: The Bush Dynasty.

Some say that he was assassinated by the Syrians, for having attempted a regime change in Damascus. Syria eliminates Bandar bin Sultan in retaliation for Damascus bombing

The following link is also useful:

Saudi Aravbia Intelligence Headquarters and Saudi Deputy Intelligence Killed as Payback.

However it happened, the death last July renders him "conveniently incapable" of testifying or adding anything more to the class action suit, brought against him by families of 9/11 victims.

At UN Session, US Empire in Decline and Global Solidarity on the Rise

The US Military is a Great Threat to our Future

It also leaves behind toxic pollution from burn pits and weapons such as depleted uranium (DU). The use of DU violates international law, including the Biological Weapons Convention. As described in David Swanson’s article about a new study, which documents the horrific impact of DU on newborns in Iraq,

“…every round of DU ammunition leaves a residue of DU dust on everything it hits, contaminating the surrounding area with toxic waste that has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the age of our solar system, and turns every battlefield and firing range into a toxic waste site that poisons everyone in such areas.”

The Coup Has Begun – The Empire Strikes Back Everywhere

“I am altering the deal, pray I don’t alter it any further.”
Darth Vader, “The Empire Strikes Back”

You know I think there are no coincidences in politics. Everything happens on a particular schedule. So when I see a day as crazy as today I have to ask the question, “Why this, why now?”
Look at the headlines and you’ll see what I’m talking about. All of these things happened since I woke up at 7:30am on Tuesday in Florida:

Democratic referenda are ignored. Bitcoin mysteriously has its network attacked. Unpopular parliaments ignore the people and remain in power. Centuries of tradition and convention thrown out the window to serve the next big thing.

It’s a coup folks.

The Military Officials Who Knew Saudi Arabia Would Fail

While it’s seems axiomatic that most Americans suffer from historical amnesia, that’s not necessarily true for the U.S. military. And as America and Iran were sprinting towards a military confrontation last week, a recently retired senior U.S. military officer expounded on what he called “the bumbling, incompetent and feckless stupidity of it all.”

The target of the officer’s ire was not Donald Trump (whom he admires) or Mike Pompeo (who he doesn’t), but Saudi Arabia’s March 2015 decision to go to war against the Iranian-allied Houthi tribal movement in Yemen —“which is,” he argues, “how all of this nonsense got started in the first place.”

He explained: “We didn’t see the [Saudi] invasion [of Yemen] coming and we were shocked when it happened. But we were pretty blunt. We told them, ‘you can’t win and you’ll bankrupt your country. It’ll be a quagmire.’ And we were right.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And so, the US- backed, Saudi war on Yemen was actually called by many of our distinguished Military Vets as a truly losing proposition" but they were utterly neither respected for their views, and not listened to.

Talk about "a catastrophic failure of imagination" regarding Yemen, which lives on in the Trump administration until this very day.

Pentagon Chief Claims He Will Reduce Rising Civilian Casualties

The Pentagon reports that Defense Secretary Mark Esper is in the process of spearheading a “major new policy” focused on cutting the number of civilians the US military and US-armed allies are killing.

There are said to be concerns about the growing number of civilians killed in US drone strikes and airstrikes, as well as the number of civilians killed by other countries, particularly Saudi Arabia, with ever-growing supplies of US arms.

That said, the Pentagon is only saying changes would come “where possible,” and that a lot of the effort might end up with the Pentagon trying to “be transparent when civilian casualties do occur.”

Ultimately this suggests that there aren’t big changes coming as initially branded. Any changes would be done only where convenient, and honestly after decades of war any efforts to reduce civilian deaths have been unsuccessful, or short-lived. The priority “where possible” is almost always.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would not bet that this will ever happen, in spite of what may possibly be this gentlemen's bets intentions.

You can't always, dominate the narrative, as was impossible during a recent Saudi strike against Yemen.

Oh, and BTW, here is a companion piece on another bombing, from commondreams.org, on another massacre, from June of this year:

US made bomb which killed 6 Yemeni civillians, including 3 children, in June attack.

Life in China Is Getting Harder, and Xi Jinping Should Worry

But the mood on the ground is less celebratory, especially in a stretch of southern China that runs from the Vietnamese border to the Pearl River Delta. The area includes the manufacturing hub of Dongguan, being reshaped by American tariffs. There’s Shenzhen -- home to Huawei Technologies Co. and just across the border from Hong Kong’s protests -- and also Nanning, which started rationing pork this month as a swine fever epidemic ravages hog stocks.

Interviews this month across these locations showed how livelihoods are getting harder and why Beijing should be concerned.

“Xi is faced with a multitude of difficult domestic and international problems,” said Dennis Wilder, former senior director for Asia on the National Security Council who’s now at Georgetown University. “Any one of these problems could become a full blown crisis and thus, while he maintains a tight hold of power, he cannot afford to celebrate too gleefully as he reviews the grand parade.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always the people at the bottom of any dictatorship, who remember what "revolution" seemed to be about; and that... was personal, and professional freedom, coupled with a right to speak your mind, even if what you are saying, is not "politically correct."

In checking in with Google, we find the following info on the longest reigning Chinese monarchy:

"China’s longest dynastic reign came from the Zhou Dynasty, a rule the started in 1046 BC up to 256 BCE, a span of 790 years. Iron was introduced to China during the Zhou’s reign and also the period when bronze ware making in China reached its peak."

So one has to wonder; how long will President XI have to "fulfil his destiny" in China?!?

'GRIEF AND ANGER' IN YEMEN AFTER US-BACKED SAUDI BOMBING KILLS SEVEN CHILDREN, NINE OTHERS

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS
Warning: This story contains graphic images and video.

A Saudi Arabia-led coalition attack on Yemen Tuesday killed 16 people, including seven children, the latest massacre in the years long conflict.

"These children should not be victims of this conflict," Save the Children in Yemen country director Tamer Kirolos told Middle East Eye. "Yet, they have paid the highest price imaginable. We're calling for an independent investigation into the attack and for perpetrators to be held to account."

(@MohammedHojily) September 24, 2019

The attack was took place in Dhalea province, an area controlled by Houthi rebels, China's Xinhua News Agency reported.

The Saudi-led war on Yemen—backed by the U.S. government—has raged for over four years.

According to Al Jazeera, the Houthis had hoped for a mutual drawdown in hostilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, here's a shoutout to one of President Trump's BFFs in the Middle East, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Mohammed Bin Salman !!

GREAT job in Yemen, yesterday; wow, 7 kids killed; how many pregnant Yemeni women did your soldiers kill, BTW?!? We know you just LOVE numbers like that!

You know what the IDF says (now, covertly,) about that, regarding pregnant Palestinian women right?!? "One Shot, Two Kills!!"

And if there is anyone reading this, who does not have the innate intelligence to understand that the foregoing is a very furiously angry piece of sarcasm, please leave this site at once, and apply to "TwitFace" to upload your very own second brain cell.

It may hurt, a little.

Here are some images, courtesy of some ballsy reporters in the region, and have not been filtered out of the article, as twitter has done with the above reports. To themindunleashed.com: Bravo for this, and bless the videographers, who wanted to share this footage. Warning: very graphic videos

Images: another savage massacre in Yemen, courtesy of US aided and abetted, by the US military

Please look at these images, even though I understand you may want to turn away from them. This is being done with your tax dollars, but more distressingly, in your names.

Look at this family, grieving inconsolably, trying to protect what is left of the children's corpses, in one video, and how gently they are putting the stones over the bodies, in an unmarked grave.

This, folks, is what this massacre will most probably achieve, with the complete signoff by both the Saudi Government, and the US government; after the Houthi attacks against two Saudi oil refineries on the 14th, the Houthis said that no more attacks of this kind will follow. but only if the Saudis stop their attacks in Yemen.

Well the Butcher of Yemen, has just responded, through this massacre, that Saudi Arabia will bomb, and continue to bomb civilians in Yemen, no matter what.

The chess pieces are starting to fall in place, if one is paying minimal attention.

Saudi Arabia has chosen not to step down on their assaults on Yemen, because of the bombing of those Saudi refinery units.

So look for another bombing of Saudi infrastructure, but this time, with massive civilian casualties, most probably carried out by the Sufis, but to be blamed on Iran.

Look for American defense infrastructure to perform moderately less badly than it did the last time, when it was a 100% failure (how, please, can that be an "accident"?).

Such a bombing would create the "red meat/bloody shirt "justification" for a massive bombing of Iran, courtesy of Saudi Arabia; Israel; and the US,even if it was not Iran which did the bombing, and they know it.

BOMB-PLOTTING EXTREMIST AMERICAN SOLDIER TRIED TO JOIN US-BACKED NEO-NAZI MILITIA IN UKRAINE

SOURCE: THEGRAYZONE.COM

A FAR-RIGHT US SOLDIER ARRESTED BY THE FBI FOR PLOTTING DOMESTIC BOMB ATTACKS SOUGHT TO JOIN UKRAINE’S NEO-NAZI AZOV BATTALION, WHICH WAS DIRECTLY ARMED AND ADVISED BY THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT
A far-right soldier in the United States Army has been arrested by the FBI for plotting bomb attacks targeting American media outlets and Democratic politicians.

While serving in the US military, this right-wing extremist gave fascist militants in Ukraine and other countries information on how to build bombs, including what he called “cell phone IEDs in the style of the Afghans.”

The FBI said he had also planned to travel to Ukraine in order to join the Azov Battalion, a neo-Nazi militia that has for years been directly supported by the US government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please give me a moment to process what I am reading here.

So the FBI failed to mention that this nutbrain, had been "armed and advised by American officers in order to turn up the heat on Russia?!?!?"

So that the FBI would look "butch" when they apprehended their "Patsy" and blame
Russia for what American FBI agents, and US military officers had done?!?

What if you found yourselves unable to stop some act of mayhem this guy could have committed, out of your view??!?

Would you have blamed Russia for it, then found the guy, and "neutralized him", after the damage was done?!?

I would politely suggest that the FBI perhaps, tha the whole organisation needs take off a few months, to decide what their real mission is, which I believe, is keeping America safe" from the threats which actually exist in this country, rather than creating bogus threats, like grooming this kind of patsy, as though Russia had actually been behind this.

Eat some yogurt and, and do some pilates; take your vitamins, particularly calcium magnesium; B; an "D".

Then, would you please report to the American people why you had to make a monster out of this guy, with the US military's involvement, and try to blame it all on the alleged, and highly manufactured "Baddie of All Baddies", Russia?!?

Russia doesn't scare me; but what scares the stuffing out of me, right now, is that some collective idiots in this administration, signed off on this, to make Russia look bad and evil, when it was actually the people in the US government who were evil enough, to try try to make this happen.

24YO MAN LEAVING A MUSIC FESTIVAL KILLED BY 3 COPS WHO ALL TASERED HIM AT THE SAME TIMEPublished: September 25, 2019Share | Print ThisSOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT

Henry County, GA — A family is devastated and asking for answers after their 24-year-old son was tasered to death by police after leaving a Georgia music festival over the weekend. Fernando Rodriquez had harmed no one and was simply walking down the street when police approached him. Moments later, after three officers simultaneously tasered him, he would be dead.

While the exact details of what led up to the incident are unclear, according to police, they received a call Friday night around 10.00 p.m. about a man walking down the street without clothes on. The man was Rodriquez and he had just left the Imagine Music Festival at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Police claim that when they approached Rodriquez, he would not comply with their demands so they had no other choice but to use force against him. That force came in the form three cops simultaneously tasering Rodriquez until he became unresponsive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So nudity in Hampton, Georgia has become such a crime, that Law Enforcement Officers, now have the right to "TASER ON SIGHT?!?"

I hope the family creates a lawsuit, from which neither Hamilton County Police, nor the perpetrators, will ever be able to walk away.

Here's How We Are Silenced By Big Tech

Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

This is how they silence us: your content has been secretly flagged as being "unsafe," i.e. "guilty of anti-Soviet thoughts;" poof, you're gone.

Big Tech claims it isn't silencing skeptics, dissenters and critics of the status quo, but it is silencing us. Here's how it's done. Let's start with Twitter. Twitter claims it doesn't shadow ban (Setting the record straight on shadow banning), which it defines as deliberately making someone's content undiscoverable to everyone except the person who posted it, unbeknownst to the original poster.

When you give up and just send Twitter Support a "report on spam," i.e. that your own site is wrongly being labeled spam, you get (of course) an automated response in which Twitter promises to do nothing and tell you nothing.

The Brexit Battle Shows Democracy Is Only Allowed When The Regime Likes The Outcome

Authored by Ryan McMaken via The Mises Institute,

The United Kingdom's Supreme Court ruled "illegal" a parliamentary tactic used by PM Boris Johnson to ensure Brexit would be carried out on October 31, more than six months after Brexit was supposed to take effect.

While the court wasn't ruling on Brexit, per se, the context of the situation makes it clear the ruling is really just the latest move from the UK's political class designed to postpone Brexit yet again.

Given the history of EU-related referenda in Europe, we can already guess how the situation will play out. British voters will either be asked to vote again on Brexit - so that this time, they can get it "right" - or the Brexit agreement will be constructed in such a way that Brexit will be a British exit in name only.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS, from the country which gave the world the Magna Carta?!?

This is only going to inspire the Brussels Inquisitors of the EU, to treat the UK as a despicable colony which should be consistently ignored, except concerning what taxes which can still be bled from it.

"Chaotic Mess:" Global Shipping Industry Rattled By US Sanctions On China Tanker Firms 

The global shipping industry was thrown a curveball on Wednesday when the U.S. imposed fresh sanctions on Chinese entities and people who it accuses of deliberately purchasing oil from Iran in violation of Washington's sanctions against Tehran, Bloomberg reported.

The U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions on five Chinese nationals and six entities, including a unit of COSCO Shipping Corp., who were knowingly violating restrictions on purchasing Iranian petroleum.

"And we are telling China, and all nations: know that we will sanction every violation," Pompeo said at a conference on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in NYC.

Bloomberg spoke with oil traders who canceled bookings with sanctioned entities and let provisional charters lapse as they wanted to avoid being caught up in the fight between Washington and Tehran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lack of oil transport is going most probably going to drive up the price of oil intensely, at least for a limited period of time.

And the question I have here is, will the US Navy be ordered to interdict foreign ships suspected of carrying contraband cargo?!?

Because THAT, friends... is tantamount to a declaration of war.

Danske Bank Executive At Center Of Massive Money-Laundering Scandal Found Dead

ERR reported on Wednesday that after several days of local police searching for Aivar Rehe, who was in charge of Danske Bank in Estonia from 2006 to 2015, was found dead in the forest near his home at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, near the capital of Tallinn.

Estonian Police started searching for Rehe on Monday after he disappeared, reports indicated he was mentally unstable and at risk for suicide.

On Tuesday, local police told ERR that he was "a threat to his own life and well-being."

By Wednesday, ERR confirmed that all signs pointed to suicide, well, that is at least what the local media is reporting.

Danske Bank's Estonian branch is at the heart of one of the largest money-laundering scandals, with €200 billion ($220 billion) of suspicious funds flowing from Russia, Moldova, and Azerbaijan, for at least a decade. The amount of money that was transferred was equivalent to 10 times Estonia's GDP, mostly originating from Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks as though the upper management at the bank already has its "sacrificial goats" ready for the stew pot, as this article states: "Ten former employees, most low/mid-tier ones, are suspects in the investigation."

But what is interesting as how some intriguing bits of information were released, for example: the bit about "reports" (by whom, please?!?)which " indicated he was mentally unstable and at risk for suicide.", which by Tuesday, had morphed into police reports, stating: "local police told ERR that he was "a threat to his own life and well-being."

Also notice; there are no collaborating accounts from his family or his friends, that the above was ever true.

I think that ultimately, this guy was a "live liability" for to the criminals manipulating the system, who knew exactly what had happened, and precisely what to do to prevent this man from talking; people like this have paid assassins on speed dial, for just such a job, and who understand how to artfully conceal a true murder... as a fake suicide.

The Trump Impeachment Inquiry Scam

Most all actions by both right wings of the US one-party state are politically motivated.

They’re united when it comes to unlawfully advancing America’s imperium by brute force and other hostile means, supporting privileged interests over the general welfare, and cracking down hard on activists for peace, equity and justice, opposing their actions.

They alternate in running the executive and congressional branches of government, using dirty tricks to advance their interests.

Syrian Army Prepares for Escalation in Golan Heights

On September 21, an EW unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) intercepted and took control of a large quadcopter-style unmanned aerial vehicle over the town of Erneh, near the contact line between the SAA and the Israeli-occupied part of the Golan Heights.

According to local sources, the UAV was likely operated by Israel. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) used similar UAVs in its attack on a Hezbollah media center in Lebanon’s Beirut on August 25. In own turn, Lt. Col. Avichay Adraee, a spokesman for the Israeli military, claimed that the UAV was not belonging to the IDF. Lt. Col. Adraee said that the UAV may have been “Iranian”.

Following the incident, the SAA has reinforced its positions near the Golan Heights.

The situation is escalating in the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone, where militants have resumed their attacks on government positions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So we have come to the point, where Israel and Syria duking it out militarily, over the Golan; this could get nasty in a heartbeat.

And please do not forget; Russia has aided Syria, militarily, when it was fighting the US-trained, equipped, and jihadist groups were allowed to function.

Humanitarian Crisis in Kashmir: India’s “Economic Opening” Has “Closed Off Kashmir”

Those many countries, including some leading Great Powers, value their trade ties with India over the human rights of the Kashmiris and respect for the same UN Charter that they all officially agreed to uphold.

The following is the speech that Andrew Korybko gave at the “Humanitarian Crisis In Kashmir: Paths To A Resolution” conference that was held in Moscow on 23 September.

We’re here today to draw attention to what’s been happening in Indian-Occupied Kashmir for the past month and a half, and from the little that we know, it’s extremely alarming. The 8 million people of the valley have been living in lockdown since early August, with a military-imposed curfew upheld by nearly one million Indian troops who have arbitrarily arrested thousands since then.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A genocide of Muslims in Kashmir, will most probably cause many Muslim countries and individuals to lend military and/or financial aid.

The status of Kashmir, has created a deep,and unhealing gash in the body politic in Kashmir; that the Indian government believes that such a state of things, can go on, unheeded and unhealed, unfortunately, is a really horrific mistake, which can, ultimately, wind up coming back to punish India for its tin ears, in a very awful way.

Saudis Threaten Iran on Behalf of the USFM says US patience 'not inexhaustible'

While President Trump has said that the US is not interested in a war with Iran, Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister, Adel al-Jubeir, took to a UN meeting to suggest that US military options are still being considered.

While it seems a bit presumptive for the Saudi FM to decide to speak to US policy, his comments that US patience is “not inexhaustible” seems to be directed both at threatening Iran, and at trying to get the rest of the world on board with the conflict.

Al-Jubeir says that the UN report on the attack will be available soon, and that there is a whole list of options, including military options, still being considered, with him wanting to mobilize international support for what is to come.

SAUDI PRINCE: ERDOGAN BEING PAID TO TALK ABOUT KHASHOGGI

SOURCE: MIDDLE EAST MONITOR
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is being paid to discuss Saudi’s alleged involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Prince Abdulrahman Bin Musa’id Bin Abdulaziz once again claimed yesterday.

Writing on Twitter, the prince said: “Nothing new, Erdogan continues his nonsense”, before republishing a claim he made in February: “In the last 10 days of every month, Erdogan speaks about Khashoggi’s issue, repeating the same old/new claims about Saudi Arabia. He knows this did not make sense in the past, but he may be do this at the time of the due payment!”

This came after Erdogan met with a group of Turks and Muslims on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly summit in New York yesterday. There Erdogan said he would continue to search for the facts about Khashoggi’s murder and the death of Egypt’s first freely elected civilian President Mohamed Morsi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Crown Prince Abdulrahman Bin Musa’id Bin Abdulaziz, a word, please; if you are so absolutely certain that no one in the royal family, or military had any real connection to this assassination, why do you keep flogging it, like the proverbial dead horse?!?

Were there absolutely "no there, there", you wouldn't constantly rehash the incident.

GOVERNMENT MOVES TO BLOCK ALLEGED DRONE WHISTLEBLOWER’S DEFENSE IN ESPIONAGE ACT CASE

Yet, while the U.S. government hopes to ensure Hale cannot put on a whistleblower defense during his trial, Hale’s defense attorneys have directly challenged the constitutionality of the Espionage Act, arguing [PDF] it violates the First Amendment. They also assert that the government is selectively and vindictively prosecuting Hale for his alleged act of dissent.

Hale was indicted on five counts on May 9. Three of the charges allege he violated the Espionage Act. One charge alleges he disclosed “communications intelligence” without authorization. The fifth charge alleges he stole “government property.”

In October 2015, The Intercept published a “cache of secret documents detailing the inner workings of the U.S. military’s assassination program in Afghanistan, Yemen, and Somalia.” The media organization said the documents were provided by a whistleblower and offered “unprecedented glimpse into [President Barack] Obama’s drone wars.” They were called “The Drone Papers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I sincerely hope, that attorneys for Hale, are allowed to go forward with their defense.

Otherwise, this nation has collapsed into a black hole of dictatorship, from which it can never re-emerge.

COPS BEATEN NEARLY TO DEATH BY FELLOW COPS FOR EXPOSING A LITERAL GANG RUNNING THE DEPT

SOURCE: JACK BURNS @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Lost Angeles, CA — LA County sheriff’s deputies have divided allegiances according to several police officers who just filed a lawsuit against their fellow cops for beating and choking them nearly to death.

As TFTP repeatedly claims, many law enforcement agencies resemble gangs more than a peacekeeping entity. There are the blue lives matter stickers, the code of silence and the thin blue line. However, many who hear claims such as police are “gang members” who steal from the public often do not investigate such a strong position. Not only do whole police departments get caught up in corruption, but individual gang members can become police officers as well, and control the entire department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me totally unsurprised by these revelations; the decades-old rot with LAPD, has been going on for a great length of time, and appears to br multi-generational.

HOLES IN US BURNING SAUDI OIL FIELDS NARRATIVE COULD SPARK WAR WITH IRAN

Published: September 24, 2019

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran are escalating to new heights, drawing the United States into a confrontation with the Islamic Republic after a sophisticated attack targeted Saudi Arabia’s Aramco oil facility — the largest oil processing facility in the world — knocking out half of the country’s oil capacity, or more than 5 million barrels a day, and leaving the oil fields in flames.

The attack was nothing the Kingdom had seen before or expected: According to U.S. and Saudi intel, 18 drones and seven cruise missiles were launched and went undetected by both American and Saudi radar systems. The weaponry even went unnoticed by the U.S. military base nearby, the Prince Sultan Airbase, which is guarded by an American Patriot missile defense system and over 500 U.S. military personnel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I, personally, would like to go back to Russia's suggestion at the UN, that time be taken for a full, clear, and that an impartial group of forensic scientists, with no axe to grind, collectively, be brought together immediately, to determine cause and the perpetrator.

Because what the US and Saudi government are trying to do, at least from my perspective, is run with the accusation that Iran did this, attempt to control the narrative, and declare Iran the bad guy.

In this instance, taking time to analyze what has happened, with credible forensics, is absolutely the more wise course of action, whereas clumsy haste, could definitely engender World War III.

PAKISTAN THREATENED INDIA WITH NUCLEAR WAR AND NO ONE NOTICED

SOURCE: THEMINDUNLEASHED.COM
(TMU Op-Ed) — In a recent interview with Al-Jazeera, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan made some controversial statements regarding the use of nuclear weapons against India.

First, Khan started off by saying he was anti-war—a “pacifist.” He then developed his stance, stating that “when two nuclear-armed countries fight, if they fight a conventional war, there is every possibility that it is going to end up into nuclear war.” However, this scenario, as Khan described, is “the unthinkable.”

Khan went on to say:

“If say Pakistan, God forbid, we are fighting a conventional war, we are losing, and if a country is stuck between the choice; either you surrender or you fight ‘til death for your freedom, I know Pakistanis will fight to death for their freedom.

So when a nuclear-armed country fights to the end, to the death, it has consequences.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We here at WRH did take this very seriously, and do, thank you very much; Pakistan's Prime Minister Khan, iks a very serious guy, and I would like to hope that, with all the hoopla with which Modi was received in Texas, concerning an energy deal, that President Trump (gently) pulls him into a side room, and says, "Prime Minister Modi, I don't know quite what you have been thinking, but to completely reorder your government and Constitution, to cancel out all autonomy for Kashmir, was one big, fat, hairy no-no!!"

But what is even worse, is the reality that China provides Pakistan with a great deal of its weaponry and training; the US has agreements in place with India; getting pulled into a world war, due to treaties, was how the world wound up with World War 1.

All Options Including Military on Table After Probe Into Aramco Attack Completed - Saudi FM

The drone attacks on two major Saudi Aramco plants at Abqaiq and Khurais were carried out on September 14. As a result of significant damage done to the facilities, the production of about 5.7 million barrels of crude oil per day, or about half of Saudi Arabia’s total daily output, was temporarily suspended.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has announced that Riyadh is considering all options, including military, after the probe into the attacks on Aramco oil facilities is completed.

"We want to mobilise international support, and we want to look at all options - diplomatic options, economic options and military options - and then make the decision," he said, speaking in New York on Tuesday at a conference on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation of what Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said, in Diplospeak:

"We did not have the amount of support necessary for an immediate military action against Iran; the US overnights were utter crap, so this whole sordid thing is going to have to be pushed to the next level, including attacks not only against Saudi facilities, but also against innocent civilians; we need a bloody shirt to to wave, as our "Pearl Harbor", to get people excited about getting into yet another mindless war, which could go global, and see civilization simply end on that note.

The Trump / Q-Anon psyop - Good guy / bad guy theater on the way to a one world government: Part 1 - Trump the Zionist stooge

So I've been digging into this whole Trump and Q-Anon topic for a while now and I've become quite convinced it's part of a much larger psy-op to get the masses to keep trusting the government "just a bit longer" (of course it's always just a bit longer) while they make their final preparations to get to a one world government in place which is to be led from Jerusalem. I would like to be wrong on this, but there is far too much evidence pointing in this direction.

US Embassy Declines to Comment on Denial of Visas to Russian UN Delegates

The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned on Tuesday the US envoy to Moscow after it turned out that the US had failed to provide several members of the Russian delegation to the United Nations General Assembly with visas timely.

The US Embassy in Russia has declined to comment on US visa denial to members of the Russian delegation for the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), qualifying it as an isolated case.

"According to our rules, we do not comment on isolated cases of submitting applications for US visas," the embassy said in a statement.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, has said that several members of the Russian delegation for the UNGA have been refused US visas. She has also refuted Washington's claims that the Russian nationals have failed to timely submit necessary documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump wants to insure that no narrative on Iran can possibly be heard, except his own, by keeping these Russian delegates out of the UN.

"The Dam Could Break On Thursday": Here Are 12 Quotes That Signal Democrats Are Primed To Impeach Trump

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

It looks like they are really going to do it. The Democrats are actually preparing to begin impeachment proceedings, and as you will see below, one senior House Democratic aide is warning that “the dam could break on Thursday”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this is all the Democrats have, before 2020, they are in a terrible place, and apparently, would rather resemble a circular firing squad right now, than to sort out the real needs and concerns of the American People, as things get horrifically broken down in this country; middle-age plagues have now become commonplace in major cities, and our infrastructure decays from budget delays in fixing them.

Saudi Airstrike Hits North Yemen Mosque, Killing Five Civilians

Saudi warplanes attacked a mosque in northern Yemen’s Amran Province early Monday, according to local media, killing at least five civilians. All the slain were members of the same family.

It’s not entirely clear why the mosque was attacked, though the Saudis have been bombing northern Yemen with increased frequency over the past several days, and most of the strikes don’t seem to be hitting anything military-related.

If anything, Friday’s proposal for a truce by Yemen’s Houthi movement seems to be driving the Saudis to carry out even more aggressive and frequent attacks, so as to remove any doubt that they are not on board with it.

And while the airstrikes in north Yemen are causing civilian casualties, the real problem is likely yet to come, as the Saudis have begun a new offensive against the port city of Hodeidah.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just... swell, Saudi Arabia; you have let the Houthis know that you will not take advantage of the proposed cease-fire.

Of course, what this means, is the following: at some point, the Houthis will strike deep into Saudi territory, perhaps over another large petroleum refining center, and let their drones do the talking.

And this time, there may well be be injuries, and massive casualties (the Saudi military, enabled by US troops, routinely bombs hospitals; mosques, and schools.)

More impotent US missiles will be quickly installed in Saudi Arabia, but will most probably do more not much more to defend either the Saudis, or US troops stationed there, than did the last round of missiles.

And then what?!? It will most probably destroy any chance for Saudi Arabia's ARAMCO's IPO, upon which the Crown Prince Bin Salmin,has desperately built his plans for a new, modern economy, to move forward.

And without this IPO being successful upon launch, the economy, and future leadership of the country, may well be "up for grabs."

And please remember; last June, a senior Russian official made the following statement: Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks.

Eating meat could be banned like smoking, says top barrister, as he calls for new crime of 'ecocide'

Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale.

Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife . In a message delivered at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign, which encourages people to stop eating meat and dairy, Mansfield said he had a ‘single message’ to make ecocide a crime.

“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but looking at this gentleman's girth, one could actually wonder if he is personally as much of a vegetarian as he claims to be.

And secondly, when something is declared illegal, like meat, the monied can still get it illegally, and selling it for huge prices, while poorer people are going to have the devil's own time getting the protein they need, particularly for pregnant moms.

Alarming VA Report Totals Decade of Veteran Suicides

23 Sep 2019
Military.com | By Richard Sisk
The Department of Veterans Affairs released an alarming report Friday showing that at least 60,000 veterans died by suicide between 2008 and 2017, with little sign that the crisis is abating despite suicide prevention being the VA's top priority.

Although the total population of veterans declined by 18% during that span of years, more than 6,000 veterans died by suicide annually, according to the VA's 2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report.

The report did not take into account the possible effects of VA's programs aimed at outreach and removing the stigma of seeking help for mental health. Overall, though, the data show the suicide rate is increasing.

In 2017, more than 6,100 veterans died by suicide, an increase of 2% over 2016 and a total increase of 6% since 2008, the report found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers... are nearly off the chart crazy, and again, point to one issue; once our military are "in country", and they really understand what they have been asked to do, which is to "neutralize" populations (usually through assassinations, or other forms of murders) so that the US can control their government and their resources, ending up with thost resources sold in US dollars, and only US dollars.

And even if these troops were never called up to participate in the fighting, they have an extraordinarily sharp sense, that in all the justifications the "Warminals" dish up, none really ever make logical sense.

So, out of desperation, the Military medical does what they have been told to do; sedate them just hard enough that they, hopefully, will not be reliving images of the nightmare scenarios they have heard, about ground strikes, or wedding parties assassinated, and children stepping on unexploded cluster bombs, which can rip a child's body to shreds.

And for some people, this exposure to the monstrousness of war, is all that is necessary to plunge them into the deep, downward sliding of depression, and winding up in the abyss of uncontrollable despair, after finding out that something has gone horrifically wrong with their government, but they are not able to fix it.

As Washington uses questionable evidence to call on other nations to condemn Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is expected to take a much different approach and use his time at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) this week to propose a cooperative agreement to stabilize and secure the Persian Gulf region.

“I will also get the Iranian nation’s message across to the international community,” Rouhani said Monday after touching down in New York for the 74th UNGA. “The Iranian people are suffering from a cruel economic war. Iran is a nation of resistance and wants everyone to return to their commitments and laws.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sincerely, and prayerfully, that Rouhani does get a chance to speak tomorrow. The guy isn't a monster; just someone attempting to keep an elected government in place, and take care of his people

But with all the hoopla around him and this visit,I would not bet against Israel and the US creating some kind of "false flag" which would require his returning home early for "emergency consultations" with other members of his government.

Fringe Jewish sect 'Lev Tahor' seeks asylum - in Iran

Considering that Iran(Persia) has had a thriving Jewish Community for the last 2500 years.

http://realiran.org/jewish-community-in-iran-all-you-need-to-know/

Lev Tahor, a fringe haredi sect, has requested political asylum from the Iranian government.

In its request, the group “declared their loyalty and submission to the Supreme Leader and Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” It asks for “asylum, protection and religious freedom of the families of its loyal members,” and also calls for “cooperation and help to counter Zionist dominance in order to peacefully liberate the Holy Land and the Jewish nation.”

HAITI: PHOTOJOURNALIST SHOT IN FACE AS SENATOR OPENS FIRE OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT

SOURCE: THEGUARDIAN.COM
Two men including a photojournalist have been shot and injured by a Haitian senator who opened fire outside the country’s parliament, amid chaotic scenes as the government attempted to confirm the appointment of a new prime minister.

Chery Dieu-Nalio, an Associated Press photographer, was wounded in the face and a second man, Leon Leblanc, a security guard and driver, was also injured in the incident in the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince, on Monday.

Although doctors were reported to be removing bullet fragments from Dieu-Nalio’s face, the injuries are said not to be life-threatening.

Before leaving the scene, Leblanc told reporters he had seen Jean Marie Ralph Féthière, a senator from the north of the country, draw a handgun as he tried to leave the parliamentary precincts through a crowd of protesters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what the motivation here could have been, but after all, it is Haiti, where the US has laundered money, and drunk deep of the country's corruption and US-engendered servitude.

REPORTS OF WEDDING PARTY BOMBING INDICATE US FORCES HAVE MASSACRED AT LEAST 70 AFGHAN CIVILIANS IN ONE WEEK

SOURCE: COMMON DREAMS
Dozens of Afghan civilians are dead, local officials said Monday, following operations carried out late Sunday by U.S. and Afghan forces targeting al Qaida fighters.

The incident in the southern province of Helmand, which came just days after a U.S. drone strike killed at least 30 farm workers in eastern Nangarhar province, highlights the fragile situation for civilians as the U.S. enters its 19th year of war in Afghanistan.

Details on exactly how many people were killed and who was responsible for the Sunday attacks remain unclear, a fact attributed at least in part to the area being under Taliban control. The U.S. has blamed the "majority of the deaths" on al Qaida. U.S. and Afghan officials say they're investigating.

The New York Times reported:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind the Pentagon and State Department, that punishing an entire population for the sake of getting a few more "scalps" on its belt, is a war crime.

DOD THREATENS TO KILL MILLENNIALS WITH STEALTH BOMBER IN AREA 51 RAID 

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
The Department of Defense (DoD) has apologized for an obscene tweet that threatened to deploy a stealth bomber against "millennials" on Friday who tried to break into a highly classified US Air Force facility located within the Nevada Test and Training Range, reported Reuters.

The now-deleted tweet, posted on Friday on the Twitter account Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DVIDS), a PR arm of the DoD, showed a photo of a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, stating: "The last thing #Millennials will see if they attempt the #area51raid today."

DVIDS took aim at "Storm Area 51," a Facebook group that planned to storm Area 51 in Nevada on Friday, with intentions to "see them aliens" which conspiracy theorists claim the secret base holds evidence of extraterrestrials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF actually true, this is absoflippinglutely unbelievable, considering that the US military is woefully short-handed due to falls in recruitings drives, and should be, perhaps, a little more adroit in handling the feelings of the very people they may seriously want to recruit.

A HALF-DECADE LATE, NY POST ADMITS ISIS IS RUN BY NATO MEMBER TURKEY

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
It's that time once again: over the weekend Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan for perhaps the twentieth time warned his army is making preparations to act on its southern border with Syria, saying it will take unilateral steps to create a "safe zone" amid accusations the US is dragging its feet implementing agreements to push Syrian Kurdish forces from the border.

This as yet another 'conspiracy theory' gets belatedly confirmed as conspiracy fact by the mainstream. The New York Post asks "Why isn’t the media covering Turkish President Erdogan’s ties to ISIS?" — well, it's at least been endlessly reported here and other places for about the past half decade. Better late than never, we suppose. The report details:

The evidence of Erdogan’s direct, personal and institutional support for ISIS and related jihadi groups is so extensive, the wonder is why the American media is not paying more attention to it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The answer to that last question, is as plainly obvious a it is painful: the Presstitute whorespondents who want their "access" never denied, never look at what is really going on, but allow themselves to be "misdirected" by a government which, if examined collectively and logically by its people, would immediately demanded to resign.

But you see, all the wars in the Middle East and beyond, serve only the agenda of the US's "Deep State". This is why connecting the dots is of no use and purpose to those alleged whorespondents, because their "daily bread" is earned by spreading lies and creating misdirections, the real purpose of which is to lull Americans into a state of near-vegetative somnolence, until the "next big crisis" du jour is presented, and the US government and military, are, of course, expected to act, as though a US-led war is the only answer to the problem at hand.

Defiant Facebook Buys Startup Focused On 'Controlling Computers With Your Mind'

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg visited Capitol Hill to try and 'win friends' in Congress. It was his first big trip back to Washington since the contentious House and Senate hearings last year, where the Facebook chief was accused of sometimes treating lawmakers with disdain (who can forget 'senator, we run adds'?).

The timing of his trip is starting to make more sense. Thanks to a flurry of federal and state investigations, for the first time in its existence, Facebook is facing the very real risk of being broken up. Several lawmakers have asked whether breaking Facebook into Instagram, Whatsapp and Facebook wouldn't be better for consumers. Facebook agrees that something should be done to regulate social media and other Internet companies, but it doesn't think the bipartisan anti-trust movement that formed in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica scandal is the right path.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this technology becomes mature, robust, and capable, I have to wonder if DARPA isn't going to attempt to "immediately buy out the Zuke", for trillions, and adapt this technology for virtual weapons control, to develop for the US weapons program.

Full Spectrum Dominance: The US Demonizes “Invented Enemies”

Hegemon USA needs enemies to advance its imperial aims. None exist so they’re invented.

The scheme is all about pursuing what the Pentagon’s May 2000 Joint Vision 2020 called “full-spectrum dominance.”

It refers to unchallenged US control over planet earth, its landmass, waterways, airspace, sub-surface, electromagnetic spectrum, information systems, and outerspace.

It’s about “the ability of US forces, operating alone or with allies, to defeat any adversary and control any situation across the range of military operations” — according to the Pentagon.

It’s about imperial madness — the US addiction to endless preemptive wars to transform all nations into vassal states, their sovereign rights affirmed under international law subordinated to a higher power in Washington.

America: A Land Without Truth

It has been 17 days since a four-year study of the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 by civil engineers was made available to the media. The study concluded that fire was not the cause of the collapse of the 47-story building. The study also concluded that “the collapse of WTC 7 was a global failure involving the near-simultaneous failure of every column in the building.”

After 17 days, the report of the civil engineering team remains unmentioned in the American media except for a local Alaska TV station and a local Alaska newspaper. The report went straight into the Memory Hole. The vast majority of the American people will never know that the information has been kept from them.

The pile of lies that constitutes American awareness is very high.

"A Glimpse Of Government's Ability To Totally Control Our Lives"

House Arrest Turns Your Home Into A Jail

The focus of this article is to explore how sophisticated the state has become and its ability to turn your home into an Orwellian prison. Crumbling justice systems have forced courts to prioritize crimes by seriousness and explore new ways of getting people to behave. This translates into petty criminals being allowed to walk free for crimes such as shoplifting, minor assault, vandalism, fraud, and DUIs. A rapidly growing alternative to throwing a person convicted of a crime in jail is some form of house arrest. This is a term most of us heard but do not understand the full scope of what it may encompass.

Luongo: Did Trump Just Fall Into Aramco's Trap?

Authored by Tom Luongo via Gold, Goats, 'n' Guns blog,

Now that I’ve had a week to process it, the attack on the Saudi Abqaiq oil processing facility was more than a brilliant operation, it was a trap.

And, unfortunately, President Trump just fell in it.

My initial reaction to this was that it could have easily been a false flag to gin up a war with Iran on the eve of Israeli elections. The initial spate of questions hadn’t been answered adequately.

As the week went along, however, it became clear that the responses from all concerned to this attack that the those that took responsibility for it, the Houthis in North Yemen backed by Iranian technology, were the ones that did it.

And it all comes down to the same thing, the Saudi Aramco IPO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, scuttling the Aramco deal, by making Saudi Arabia look incapable of defending its borders, and its oil refining capabilities, was the point all along?!?

I have a great deal of respect for Luongo, and his analyses, as in this case, may well be bang spot on.

I just hope and pray, that things stay quiet here; because if they do not, we may well be looking at the US government and Military, slogging their way, damn nearly unconsciously, into an horrendous war which may prove "past the point of no return" for all the countries enmeshed therein.

The U.S. Department of Terrorism

Department of State"

"The Iranian regime is the most destabilizing force in the Middle East and the world’s top sponsor of terrorism. That’s why the U.S. launched a campaign of maximum pressure. It’s producing maximum results."

This Big Lie production about Iran’s alleged malevolence toward its neighbors has dramatic music and graphics to support an obvious falsehood—Iran is the number one terror state in the world.

In fact, that designation is reserved for the United States government and its junior partner, Israel.

History is replete with examples—from both world wars to dozens of imperialist ignited brush fires including Vietnam and Iraq. As for Israel, it has been at war with its Arab neighbors for well over 70 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an American who cares about her country, and a Christian Pacifist Activist, it has been hard to process all of the information, with which children in a public school, are forced to endure.

The beauty; the soul; the kindness; ingenuity; enthusiasm, and generosity of individual Americans, are, unfortunately, never really represented by a US government which alleges that it represents us, but generally only in the worst ways possible.

Unfortunately, that has become the case with the Unhinged, surveilled, State of Amerika; public wars are waged against created enemies, with public money, ultimately for private gain.

The pattern is brazenly simple, in its execution; a country, with incredible resources, is vilified as "the enemy" throughout the corporate, presstitute media; then, efforts are made to regime change; install a western/US centric government in its place; then foreign governments are brought in to "expropriate" those resources, to which they have no moral right, and these resources only get sold in US dollars.

Wash; rinse; repeat.

And IF the US winds up going to war against Iran, with Russia already having stated: Iran won't stane alone if US attacks it through one of its highest-ranking diplomats last June, we are looking at the following line-up: Russia, Iran, (and possibly China), on Iran's side, with the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel on the other.

Unfortunately for both the US government and its weaponry makers, the US military proved itself completely impotent to prevent those two strikes against Saudi Arabian oil processing facilities a week ago; in fact, this could be construed as a 100% failure rate, on the part of US weapons, during that military encounter.

But the worst thing which can go wrong, has already gone horribly wrong, for both this US government and its State Department, right after 9/11, when we were told that both Afghanistan was "protecting Osama bin Laden", and Iraq had "weapons of mass destruction".

Both statements were lies, upon which military campaigns were premised, and during which a great number of American service members, died, or were crippled for life.

When any government decides that it is perfectly acceptable to lie, in order for the monied, to obtain the financial benefits of war, that government is no longer a reasonable, responsive, and cohesive voice of the people it allegedly represents.

It then becomes a monster, a frankenstein of its own creation, repeatedly lashing out against whoever, in the independent media, will not "peddle" their propaganda, and attempt to make life thoroughly miserable for them.

This.. is the current state of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika.

And looking at past precedents in global history, I would suggest, that the state of this nation, will dissolve in one of two ways; either, a complete financial breakdown, or a world war which will bring about total destruction to the entire planet.

China, Russia, Iran ‘plan joint naval drill in international waters’

China, Russia and Iran are planning a joint naval drill in the Sea of Oman and northern Indian Ocean “soon”, a semi-official Iranian news outlet reported on Saturday, just days after the United States blamed Iran for a drone attack on Saudi Arabian oil facilities.

General Ghadir Nezami Pour, head of international affairs and defence diplomacy of Iran’s General Staff of the Armed Forces, said the drill would take place in international waters, the Iran Press news agency reported.

“The exercises have different goals, including the exchange of tactical and military experiences, and sometimes they seek political goals which show a kind of convergence between participants,” he was quoted as saying.

“Officials at the level of defence minister, chief of staff of the armed forces and commanders of the armed forces will come to Iran in the near future and these actions reflect Iran’s active defence diplomacy,” he was quoted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that the Adults in the Bowels of Power in the US; Israel; and Saudi Arabia, are paying reasonably close attention to this evolving, shift of alliances.

And I would also like to politely point to President Trump, that these countries which have been the most maligned by him, ever since he came to office, have had a way of making such a relationship not only work militarily, but also economically.

All these countries are looking to,or already have "dumped" the US dollar in financial relationships, and are dealing with their national currencies only in their trade with each other.

Occupation good for Palestinians, says Israeli opposition chief

Benny Gantz, chief of the Israeli army during Israel’s 2014 massacre in Gaza, is borrowing apartheid South Africa’s talking points to boost his election campaign.

Gantz heads the allegedly center-left opposition coalition hoping to unseat Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel’s elections later this month.

In a campaign attack on Israel’s prime minister, Monday, Gantz declared that, unlike Netanyahu, he would have allowed US congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib to visit Israel and the occupied territories.

Had they visited, Gantz claimed, they would have seen “with their own eyes” that “the best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is in Israel … and the second best place to be an Arab in the Middle East is the West Bank.”

Gantz’s contention that Israeli military occupation and colonization is a blessing to Palestinians is a direct echo of South Africa’s apartheid rulers who insisted that their brutal white supremacist regime was good for Black people.

I do not post this because it is "new news"; I am posting this, because I think that this is something which those Christians who are very loyal to Israel, and support it unthinkingly, really need to see, and understand.

I do not know what the Hebrew translation for "useful idiots" is, but I am quite certain that it is a muscularly derogatory comment, made frequently by those same leaders in Tel Aviv, plotting for the entire destruction of the Palestinian people, who love the money - and the adoration - which Christian Zionists who offer in huge amounts of both.

Howdy, Modi! Tens of thousands, including Trump, meet India’s PM in Texas

Over 50,000 people showed up for the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event in Houston, Texas, giving India’s PM a rock star-level welcome. President Donald Trump joined him on stage as the two leaders lauded US-India ties.
People gathered hours in advance for the massive rally at Houston’s NRG Football Stadium with a music and dance show featuring around 400 artists. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s name was chanted long before his appearance – a welcome for a foreign leader rarely seen on American soil.

@Sunil_Deodhar
The man who has single handedly transformed the global image of India, PM @narendramodi Ji receives a hero's welcome in Houston,Texas. No other world leader has achieved anything close to what Modi ji did today. India had truly risen, India has truly arrived. GLOBALLY.#HowdyModi

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; just in case all of your "first string advisors", have avoided mentioning this to you, you probably need to know, that India and her Neighbor, Pakistan, are very close to a shooting war over Kashmir.

Both are nuclear-armed. And before you really decide that this guy is about to become your newest, BFF, please note what the Indian government did right after massive demonstrations in the Kashmiri region, was the following:

iNDIA ABOLISHES KASHMIRI AUTONOMOUS STATUS This was done at a moment that all Kashmiri linksto the internet, had been silenced.

The situation between both countries is in a horrific state, with Modi still believing that his "catch phrases" are somehow going to make a difference; so, Sir, when the excrement hits the fan, and a hot shooting war over Kashmir starts, please remember that Pakistanis are very dependent upon China to assist it in military affairs, and we understand from recent posts that Pakistan's leader, Prime Minister Kahn, has made the following, and terrifying suggestion: ‘surrender-or-death’ scenario

Mr. President, I understand the emotional "high" during your rallies, I get it;but President Trump, you, and the other honorable Adults in the Room, internationally, have to start working the phones as quickly as you can, between New Dehli and Islamabad, to avert a catastrophe which may well pit the US and China into a monstrous proxy war between India and China, over Kashmir.

Let's, please, tamp this down, before there is a miserable, irrevocable shooting war, which could go nuclear in a heartbeat.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

How Afghan Opium Poppy Farming Has Grown

MYSTERY TOWERS GOING UP ALL OVER CINCINNATI AREA

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
These towers are going up and the cities don’t know which companies are building them? This is incredible.

Via: WCPO:

But the FCC allows these towers to go in with almost no local approval. The FCC and FAA claim there are no proven links between 5G cell service and health effects, and say local residents have no reason to fear these new towers.

But Hamilton County Engineer Ted Hubbard told us a few months ago that even he, and other county officials are left in the dark.

“The ownership is a big question,” Hubbard said. “And I have asked that. We are having a hard time finding out who actually owns it.”

That means no one has publicly stated who owns the mysterious Cleves tower, or any of the others popping up across the Tri State. It has no company name on the base.

As the "Watergate" character "Deep Throat" said, in the film version, "You have to "follow the money", because that is where you are most apt to find the telling information you need to make a case for ownership.

ORWELLIAN NIGHTMARE: SIX US CITIES MAKE LIST OF MOST SURVEILLED PLACES IN THE WORLD

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
A new report from Comparitech, a technology research firm, details how an Orwellian society, very similar to what was written in George Orwell’s (non-fiction) novel 1984, is playing out across cities in the US. According to Comparitech, six US cities made the top 50 list of the most surveilled places in the world.

Why? Because closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the US have increased from 33 million in 2012 to nearly 62 million in 2016 and could double or triple from there in the next five years. Both government and private sources operate these cameras in cities.

'THIS VIDEO UNDERCUTS CHINA'S NARRATIVE': SATELLITE SLEUTHS VERIFY 'CHILLING' VIDEO OF BLINDFOLDED UYGHURS

SOURCE: NET.AU
Australia's Foreign Minister and members of the Uyghur community have condemned a "deeply disturbing" and "horrifying" video of Uyghurs in China's Xinjiang that has surfaced online.

The footage purportedly shows dozens of Uyghur men — their heads freshly shaved —blindfolded with their hands tied behind their backs during a mass transfer at a train station in the north-west region of China.

The video, posted to YouTube last week anonymously by War on Fear, has been verified as authentic by Nathan Ruser, a satellite analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute.

Mr Ruser said by zooming in on Google Earth details like the shadow cast from a pole or the planting of bushes, he could determine the footage was shot in either April or August in 2018 at a train station west of the city of Korla.

"Through all of those methods I was able to basically verify that that video is legitimate," he told the ABC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these images can be proven, by several authenticators, as true,
China's Ministry for Human Rights ( if there IS such a thing), has one whole lot of explaining to do.

SECRET FBI SUBPOENAS FOR PERSONAL DATA GO FAR BEYOND PREVIOUSLY KNOWN

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Secret subpoenas issued by the FBI for personal data go far deeper than previously known, according to new documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, according to the New York Times.

The agency says the sweeping requests are crucial to counterterrorism efforts - however the new records reveal that the FBI requests go far beyond Silicon Valley; "encompassing scores of banks, credit agencies, cellphone carriers and even universities," according to the report.

The demands can scoop up a variety of information, including usernames, locations, IP addresses and records of purchases. They don’t require a judge’s approval and usually come with a gag order, leaving them shrouded in secrecy. Fewer than 20 entities, most of them tech companies, have ever revealed that they’ve received the subpoenas, known as national security letters. -New York Times

Thomas DiLorenzo: More on the Myth of Lincoln, Secession and the 'Civil War' By Anthony Wile

Thomas DiLorenzo: Lincoln mythology is the ideological cornerstone of American statism. He was in reality the most hated of all American presidents during his lifetime according to an excellent book by historian Larry Tagg entitled . He was so hated in the North that the New York Times editorialized a wish that he would be assassinated. This is perfectly understandable: He illegally suspended Habeas Corpus and imprisoned tens of thousands of Northern political critics without due process; shut down over 300 opposition newspapers; committed treason by invading the Southern states (Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution defines treason as “only levying war upon the states” or “giving aid and comfort to their enemies,” which of course is exactly what Lincoln did). He enforced military conscription with the murder of hundreds of New York City draft protesters in 1863 and with the mass execution of deserters from his army.

Saudi Arabia up in Flames: Riyadh Is Headed for a Major Disaster

The Saudi kingdom finds itself in an increasingly dangerous situation as a result of the retaliatory capacity of the Houthis, able to inflict severe military and economic damage on Riyadh with their missile forces. Estimates suggest that Riyadh is losing something in the region of $300 million a day from the Houthi attacks. On Sunday September 15, a spokesman for the Saudi oil ministry spoke of damage that is yet to be calculated, possibly requiring weeks of repair. Meanwhile, Saudi oil production has halved following the Saturday attack. With a military budget of $200,000, the Houthis managed to inflict damage numbering in the billions of dollars.

“Houthi Attack” on Saudi Oil Fields – a False Flag? The Financial Reaction Was Immediate

If it all sounds like a big fabricated confusion, it’s because it is a big fabricated confusion. Iran is singled out; fingers pointing to Iran (except, miraculously those of Saudi Arabia), like a sledgehammer hitting Iran, again and again. – The mainstream media loves it. Today, a week after the attack, most nobody remembers the Houthis claiming responsibility – it was Iran. Period. The media blitz won.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France's Macron absolutely seemed to be on the correct track, when he sent a team of forensic specialists to Riyadh, to see what could be determined; but I am very concerned that before they have time to even open their scientific equipment, there will be a new, and devastating attack against Saudi Arabia, which will involve civilians, as this would create Saudia Arabia's "bloody shirt to wave/Pearl Harbor" moment.

I hope to hell that I am dead wrong on this scenario; but even with President Trump's having dispatched more US military personnel, and weaponry here, this may well not prevent another attack, if the first attacks ultimately received relatively little traction, and was about to get a true forensic investigation going.

Indian PM Modi Calls for Building ‘A New Kashmir’

New Delhi (Sputnik): In a shift from the much-used slogan of “Kashmir is Ours” all these years in election speeches, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday called on people to work towards building a new Kashmir, as he gave people a new slogan — “We’ve to Build A New Kashmir”.

“Earlier the slogan was ‘Kashmir Humara Hai’ (Kashmir is Ours). Now we must work towards a new slogan, ‘Naya Kashmir Banana Hai’ (We’ve to Build a New Kashmir),” he said, addressing a public rally in Nashik city of the Indian state of Maharashtra, which is expected to undergo state elections soon.

While giving a clarion call to embrace Kashmiri brothers and sisters, the Indian prime minister said there is need to strive to create a “new paradise in Kashmir” once again.

Stating that a lot of efforts are being made from across the border to create mistrust and violence in Jammu and Kashmir, he said: “We have to create a new paradise in Kashmir... embrace each Kashmiri.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Modi, a word, here, please; giving the voters of India a "new catch phrase", regarding Kashmir, is somewhat akin to attempting to put a large bandaid on a metastasizing cancer, and will have the same effect; absolutely nothing, for the people of Kashmir; Pakistan and India.

And when your counterpart in Pakistan, Prime Minister Khan, is making statements like the following:

Pakistani PM Khan hints at nuking India in ‘surrender-or-death’ scenario, which will almost inevitably see a regional, if not a world war, that is an absolute guarantee, your new rhetoric is getting zero traction.

There is a desperate need for real, moral, hard-won negotiations regarding Kashmir to come about, and right now; because if these do not happen, it will be catastrophic for the entire region.

Whoever attacks Iran will become ‘main battlefield’ – IRGC commander

The chief of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has vowed to shoot down all drones violating the nation’s airspace and repel any aggressor. The warning came after the US accused Iran of hitting Saudi oil sites.
Tehran is ready for “any scenario,” and remains determined to fight back “until the full destruction of any aggressor,” IRGC commander, Major General Hossein Salami, told reporters at a news conference on Saturday.

“Whoever wants their land to become the main battlefield, go ahead,” he said.

Salami made his comments while showcasing the pieces of a US RQ-4 Global Hawk spy drone that was downed by the IRGC over the Strait of Hormuz in June. Iran claimed the drone had violated its airspace, though this was disputed by Washington. Salami vowed to “take action” against all foreign drones violating the nation’s borders.

“If anyone crosses our borders, we will hit them,” he stated.

Another 'Total Massacre' Ignored By Mainstream: US Drone Strike Kills 30 Farmers In Afghanistan

Authored by Eoin Higgins via CommonDreams.org,

A U.S. drone attack killed 30 pine nut farmers and wounded at least 40 others in Afghanistan Wednesday night, the latest killing of innocent civilians by American forces as the "war on terror" enters its 19th year.

The farmers had just finished work and were sitting by a fire when the strike happened, according to tribal elder Malik Rahat Gul.

"Some of us managed to escape, some were injured, but many were killed," said farm laborer Juma Gul.

Reteurs reported that there may be more farmers missing:

Haidar Khan, who owns the pine nut fields, said about 150 workers were there for harvesting, with some still missing as well as the confirmed dead and injured.

A survivor of the drone strike said about 200 laborers were sleeping in five tents pitched near the farm when the attack happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Colonel Sonny Leggett, if the attack was made on pine nut farm workers during a harvest, where, please, were these Da'esh against whom you alleged you were attacking?!?

I am very strongly reminded of George Carlin's monologue about this issue; and for me, Carlin was far more than a comedian; he was, at some levels, a prophet.

George Carlin Monologue

And here comes "the coup de grace" on the entire sordid issue: US Defends Attacking Afghan Farm Laborers, Says ISIS Was Pretending to Harvest

This article goes on to state: "Provincial officials remain deeply critical over Thursday’s US attack on the camp of a group of farm laborers in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar, killing at least 32 civilian farm workers and wounding 40 others, many of them children.

US officials, however, continue to maintain that what everyone in the region knew were hired hands for a pine nut harvest were actually ISIS fighters, claiming that the ISIS fighters were just pretending to work as harvesters.

There is no evidence for that, and a lot of evidence to the contrary, particularly that the village in question had written to top officials weeks ago to inform them of the upcoming harvest, the temporary camp, and asking them not to attack the economically vital harvest of the forest."

Here, folks, is that letter: Letter detailian Civilian Presence, failed to Prevent a deadly Afghan Drone Strike

This article goes on to state: "‘HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO US?’
Malak Khaiyali Khan, chief of Jaora village in the Wazir Tangi area, had sent his teenage son along with three friends to shell pine nuts.

On Thursday evening, four bodies were handed over to Khan, including that of his son.

“My son and his friends were killed by the Americans. How could they do this to us?” said Khan, who was leading a protest against the strike before the burial rites."

IF these US officials actually made that turd of a statement, names should be named; because in looking at what happened to these hapless farmers, it appears, painfully clearly, that this came from the Official Department of "You Can Make this S*it Up, and People are really going to believe you!!!"

Bibi’s out? Gantz refuses to meet with Netanyahu, says he will form unity govt without embattled PM

Benny Gantz, whose centrist bloc narrowly defeated Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party in a snap election, says he is forming a government that will exclude the current prime minister – signaling the end of Bibi’s era may be near.
The ex-IDF chief said on Thursday that he would not accept Netanyahu’s offer to discuss a unity government, keeping good on his campaign pledge to create a ruling coalition that does not include Bibi.

“I am interested and intend to form a broad and liberal unity government led by me,” he wrote in a tweet.

Speaking with reporters, Gantz stressed that his Blue and White alliance “will listen to everyone, but we will not accept mandates imposed on us” – an apparent swipe at Netanyahu’s insistence that the pair should meet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bibi ran on some kind of charismatic hubris, rather than a real plan with which to move Israel forward, economically which can only diminish with time.

Netanyahu has brought this country to its knees, geopolitically, and economically, and should take some responsibility for losing to Gantz; but of course, that will only happen when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

Doubting Iran Link, Macron Sends French Experts to Investigate Saudi Oil Attack

French President Emmanuel Macron is deploying experts to Saudi Arabia to investigate the origin of the attacks on major oil facilities that Washington and Riyadh blame on Iran, Paris said Wednesday.
France’s presidential palace announced Macron’s decision to send the experts after the French leader held a phone conversation with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), the Agence France-Presse (AFP) news agency reports.

The United States and Saudi Arabia have accused Iran of carrying out Saturday’s devastating attacks on two facilities operated by the Sunni kingdom’s state-run Aramco. Macron’s administration appears to doubt Iran’s involvement in the debilitating attacks. Iran also denies involvement in the assault on the two plants, which include the top petroleum processing facility in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Macron is doing the logical thing here, and precisely what Russia's President Putin called for a couple of days ago; a fully unbiased examination of the results, to understand what actually happened here.

US President Donald Trump has threatened to set prisoners from Europe who joined Daesh* in Syria and Iraq free at the EU’s borders if they refuse to take back the captives. According to the American commander-in-chief, after the US defeated the so-called caliphate, Washington has “thousands of prisoners of war, ISIS fighters" who are European nationals, but these countries are refusing to cooperate. He singled out France and Germany when speaking on the matter.

"We're asking the countries from which they came, from Europe, we're asking them to take back these prisoners of war. And they can try them, do what they want. So far, they've refused. And at some point, I'm going to have to say, 'I'm sorry, but you either take them back or we're going to let them go at your border'", he said.

Earlier, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Hossein Salami, said that any country that attacks Iran would be the "main battlefield".

Iran's Navy Commander Hossein Khanzadi has said that Tehran is prepared to defend its maritime borders and will respond with a "crushing reaction" to any aggression by enemies.

Earlier, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said that Iran will not allow anyone to violate its borders. He added that the Islamic Republic extends the hand of friendship to all of its neighbours.

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

HomeWorld NewsPakistani PM Khan hints at nuking India in ‘surrender-or-death’ scenario

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan warned of “consequences” if nuclear-armed Pakistan ends up losing a conventional war to its nuclear-armed rival and neighbor India.
Asked in an Al Jazeera interview to set the record straight on whether Pakistan would hit India with nuclear weapons in case of a large-scale conflict, Khan began with the disclaimer that he would never be the one to attack.

“Pakistan would never start a war, and I am clear: I am a pacifist. I am anti-war,” he said.

However, the prime minister quickly added that when two nuclear-armed states “fight a conventional war, there is every possibility that it is going to end up into nuclear war.” And while he described it as “unthinkable,” his next hint sent a clear message about what Pakistan may do if it’s losing a conventional war against India.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prime Minister Khan, a word, please: all Christians, Muslims, and Jews are Collectively, universally characterized as,"People of the Book", meaning we have origin stories; prophecies; and with some prophecies fulfilled.

I would like to politely suggest to you, that even talking about using nuclear weapons over India's treatment of Kashmir, puts Pakistan on a short list for "regime change", and quickly.

IT is of the highest, most critical matter, that Pakistan and India begin talks again, in earnest, because the horrific scenarios such an attack will create, will most likely create a world war, in a heartbeat.

I am asking you to do something which is very difficult (not to mention, politically dangerous), to do; to engender an understanding between your country and India, that Kashmir will have a solid opportunity to create its own future, through a transparent, and responsible referendum process, and decide if it will be independent; stay with India; or ask to join Pakistan.

I strongly believe that this will ratched down the tensions here, and create a more peaceful opportunity for trade, cultural exchanges, and education (down the road), for all the people of Kashmir; India; and Pakistan.

Saudi Arabia executes 134 people including six kids as brutal crucifixions spike

More than 134 people have been brutally executed in Saudi Arabia so far this year, including six who were just kids when they were arrested.

A massive spike in crucifixions and beheadings has seen the slain tortured and slaughtered by brutal methods, according to a human rights organisation.

In a report presented at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Baroness Helena Kennedy, QC revealed a further 24 people are at “imminent risk” of execution.

They include three children, prominent political opponents of the crown prince, clerics, and human rights campaigners.

An event hosted by The Death Penalty Project highlighted the “illegal and arbitrary executions” in Saudi Arabia as well as human rights abuses for both detainees and their families.

Experts said these abuses have been "exacerbated by the systematic torture of detainees and grossly unfair trials culminating in death sentences".

PLASTIC APOCALYPSE: ALARMING LEVELS OF PLASTIC FOUND IN CHILDREN

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE

In the last several months we have been one of the first to cover the plastic apocalypse.

New studies are being published that detail high levels of dangerous microplastics had been detected in some of the most remote regions of the world. Another study warned microplastics are turning up in human stool. Now there are new reports that show high levels of microplastics have been found in blood and urine samples of children.

The study, conducted by the German Environment Ministry and the Robert Koch Institute, found an alarming 97% of blood and urine samples from 2,500 children tested between 2014 and 2017 had traces of microplastics.

Der Spiegel, the German weekly magazine, published the findings over the weekend, which were part of a national study focused on "human biomonitoring" of 3 to 17-year-olds, found traces of 11 out of 15 plastic ingredients in the collected samples.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is interesting what he speaks about, in those campaign rallies, but there is also a profound silence on some very, critically, important issues.

So it would make an even bet, that the heads of these companies would want him to win in 2016: and here is why:

The following article comes Google.com:

"Plastics are derived from natural, organic materials such as cellulose, coal, natural gas, salt and, of course, crude oil. Crude oil is a complex mixture of thousands of compounds and needs to be processed before it can be used. The production of plastics begins with the distillation of crude oil in an oil refinery."

So folks, there you have it......

I hope that, at least, some of those who participated in the study, will be able to mount a class-action lawsuit against those chemical makers who are causing this kind of pain and risk to children and infants.

The deal between the two governments is the latest in a series of policies aimed at creating new layers of deterrents to the influx of migrants applying for protection on U.S. soil.

Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is scheduled to announce the deal Friday afternoon, according to administration officials with knowledge of the agreement.

PROTESTS BREAK OUT AGAINST SISI IN TAHRIR SQUARE AND ACROSS EGYPT

SOURCE: MIDDLEEASTEYE.NET
Egyptian activists have held protests against the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in the largest demonstrations since the former army general tightened his grip on the country.

Crowds gathered in Cairo's Tahrir Square, the site of the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime autocrat Hosni Mubarak, on Friday night and early on Saturday, calling for an end to Sisi's rule.

"The people want to topple the regime," shouted demonstrators in Tahrir Square, according to a video posted on Twitter, echoing the chants of the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa.

Footage showing anti-Sisi demonstrations in other cities including Alexandria, Suez, Gharbiya and Mahala, Mansoura and Damietta, continued to surface online into the early hours of Saturday.

Leaked Army document reveals the whole ‘one weekend a month’ reserve thing is kinda b*llshit

The recruiting commercials for the Army Reserve proclaim "one weekend each month," but the real-life Army Reserve might as well say "hold my beer."
That's because the weekend "recruiting hook" — as it's called in a leaked document compiled by Army personnel for the new chief of staff — reveal that it's, well, kinda bullshit.
"The Army Reserve is cashing in on uncompensated sacrifices of its Soldiers on a scale that must be in the tens of millions of dollars, and that is a violation of trust, stewardship, and the Army Values," one Army Reserve lieutenant colonel, who also complained that his battalion commander "demanded" that he be available at all times, told members of an Army Transition Team earlier this year.

In addition, the colonel added, the Army Reserve had sucked up so much of his time that he was "struggling to keep my marriage and family together."

"We are by far the strongest military in the world," Mr. Trump said. "Going into Iran would be a very easy decision, as I've said before — would be very easy, the easiest thing. Most people thought I would go in within two seconds but plenty of time, plenty of time," the president said. "In the meantime, they have a lot of problems within Iran. Iran could be a great country, could be a rich country. But they are choosing to go a different way. There'll be a point at which they'll be very sorry for that choice. But I think I'm showing great restraint."

THE "CLIMATE STRIKE" IS CHILD ABUSE!

Whether the issue is "gun control" ™, "human rights" ™, or "the environment" ™, it is truly shameful how the Globalists always manipulate "the children" ™ to advance the agenda of the old international banker men (cough cough) hiding behind the last in a series of ascending curtains. Though many of these kids participating may be doing so only to get out of class for the day, we strongly suspect, based on an unintended survey which we conducted two year ago, that many millions of our our deluded young people have indeed been mind-raped beyond repair with this Globalist garbage. In spite of whatever setbacks that the New World Order crime syndicate has been dealt in recent years, this development carries very ominous portents (a $10 word for signs of something bad about to happen) for the future of domestic and geo-politics.

The Saudis Get a Taste of Their Own Medicine

The Mideast has its own variety of crazy humor. The Saudis have been blasting and bombing wretched Yemen, one of this world’s poorest nations, since 2015.

These US-supported attacks and a naval blockade of Yemen imposed by Saudi Arabia and its sidekick ally, the United Arab Emirates, have caused mass starvation.
No one knows how many Yemenis have died or are currently starving. Estimates run from 250,000 to one million.The black humor? The Saudis just claimed they were victims of Iranian `aggression’ this past week after the kingdom’s leading oil treatment facility at Abqaiq was hit by a flight of armed drones or cruise missiles.

Saudi Arabia executes 134 people including six kids as brutal crucifixions spike

More than 134 people have been brutally executed in Saudi Arabia so far this year, including six who were just kids when they were arrested.

A massive spike in crucifixions and beheadings has seen the slain tortured and slaughtered by brutal methods, according to a human rights organisation.

In a report presented at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Baroness Helena Kennedy, QC revealed a further 24 people are at “imminent risk” of execution.

They include three children, prominent political opponents of the crown prince, clerics, and human rights campaigners.

US to deploy more troops to Saudi Arabia after attack on oil industry

The Pentagon on Friday announced it will deploy additional US troops and missile defense equipment to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as Donald Trump has at least for now put off any immediate military strike on Iran in response to the attack on the Saudi oil industry.

The US defense secretary, Mark Esper, told Pentagon reporters this is a first step to beef up security and he would not rule out additional moves down the road. General Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said more details about the deployment will be determined in the coming days, but it would not involve thousands of US troops.

Other officials said the US deployment would probably be in the hundreds and the defensive equipment heading to the Middle East would probably include Patriot missile batteries and possibly enhanced radars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping - and praying - that these deployed personnel, are not going to wind up as "sacrificial lambs" from the next wave of attacks against Saudi Arabia; that would, indeed, give President Trump, his Israeli and domestic neocons, the absolute "bloody shirt" required with which to guarantee a US attack against Iran.

Trump will meet Ukrainian leader at UN next week amid uproar over 'partisan' whistle-blower's claim POTUS tried to pressure foreign leader into prosecuting Joe Biden's son for corruption using military aid as leverage

Trump is accused of pressuring Ukraine's president to prosecute Joe Biden's son for corruption, using military aid as leverage.

The president appeared to reveal information about a whistle-blower, attacking the person as 'highly partisan,' but then said he doesn't know who it is
The inspector general for the intelligence committee determined the matter was 'urgent' when he was notified of it.

Trump's acting director of national intelligence is resisting calls by Democrats to hand over the information, as statutes generally call for,
in credible cases.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani admitted during CNN interview that he asked Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's dealings there when he was vice-president.

Home Depot And Lowe's Accused Of Scanning Millions Of Customers Faces

Home Depot's "You Can Do It. We Can Help" slogan should really say, "We Can Do It. We Can Help Big Brother." And Lowe's "Do It Right For Less. Start At Lowe's" slogan should say, "Doing It Right And Identifying Every Customer, Starts At Lowe's."

According to the Cook County Record, two recent class action lawsuits accuse Home Depot and Lowe's of secretly using facial recognition to identify customers as soon as they enter their stores.

On Sept. 4, 2019, a group of plaintiffs simultaneously filed virtually identical class action complaints in Cook County Circuit Court in Chicago against Lowe’s and in federal court in Atlanta against Home Depot, accusing the retailers of violating the Illinois state law by “surreptitiously” scanning customers’ faces as they moved about the chains’ stores.

According to the Lowe's lawsuit, home improvement stores are secretly using facial recognition to identify everyone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

DANG, I really used to love to shop, occasionally, in both stores; unfortunately, it appears that I won't be visiting either, unless they promise to change this policy, and have safeguards in place to prevent this from happening in the future.

"Suspiciously Well Placed": First Images Of Crippling Damage To Giant Khurais Oil Field Revealed

Much of the attention concerning the crippling damage to Saudi Aramco facilities struck in last week's aerial attack ultimately blamed on "Iranian sponsorship" by US and Saudi officials has focused on Abqaiq processing plant, but on Friday the first on the ground images from the kingdom's giant Khurais oil field — the country's second largest — have been revealed, showing scorched infrastructure, ruptured pipelines, and "a mess of oil melted to asphalt, twisted and charred metal grates" according to an on site Bloomberg report.

And yet Aramco has remained insistent that the field will return to pre-attack output levels this month, after the company reported losing half its daily output in the aftermath of the early Saturday attacks, impacting a whopping 5% of total global supply.

Per Bloomberg, Khurais has a capacity of 1.45 million barrels a day, processing all oil on site; however the attack took out four 300-foot towers essential to the production process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, an inside job by aided and abetted by dissident Saudis, or a false flag by Israel, for which the Houthi took the credit?!?

This almost doesn't matter, because if there are more strikes, my sense is that they will be done over highly civilian-occupied targets, insuring that Saudi Arabia has its own "bloody shirt to wave"; in the end, the US and Saudi Arabia, will continue to blame the attacks against Iran, because that will be the "justification" for the US and Saudi Arabia attacking Iran.

Pentagon to Present Trump, Aides With a ‘Range’ of Iran Military Options

Though President Trump has downplayed the idea of war with Iran over the past couple of days, the actual decision is to be made at a high-profile meeting, either Thursday or Friday depending according to reports.

Trump will be joined by a number of national security officials and other aides, and will be presented with a wide array of options by the Pentagon. Options are said to range from full-scale war to a simple cyberattack.

Gen. Joe Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was very clear about the Pentagon not pushing any specific agenda on this matter, saying the response would be purely a “political judgement.”

Among Trump’s officials, Pompeo is seen as the one pushing hardest for a military response. He’s been in Saudi Arabia meeting with officials there, and probably will come back all the more hawkish.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The overnights of the last polls on this issue, showed that only 13% of Americans believed that an attack against Iran was the right thing to do.

Of course, these attacks happened at around 4 AM in the morning, when most probably the least amount of personnel were tending to these buildings; but were I a betting person, I would not bet against another Houthi attack, or an Israeli false flag.

At that point, the presstitutes will definitely be using the banner "This is the Saudi's Pearl Harbor moment!!!!!"

I sincerely hope that the American people, who have been at war over 20 years, with nothing terribly substantial having been won for them, will continue to be skeptical and demand the facts.

Because logic and facts are the only things which may, with enough energy applied to them, be the only things holding this country back from initiating a Third World War.

Saudi-led coalition strikes Yemen’s Hodeidah in wake of refinery attacks claimed by Houthis

The Saudi-led coalition has launched a new military operation north of Hodeidah, the crucial port city where nearly all of Yemen’s scarce food and other supplies are delivered, against what it called “legitimate military targets,” state-run Ekhbariya TV reported on Friday.

The coalition put out a call to civilians to keep clear of the operation’s targets, even though it is unclear how much of the Yemeni population – 80 percent of which are in various states of humanitarian crisis after more than five years of bombardment – would watch Saudi television to know what sites to stay away from.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Saudi Arabia (with US assistance) is continuing to bomb infants; children; women; and the fragile medical elderly in Yemen.

Were I Saudi, American or UAE intel person, I would take the Houthis at their word, when they talk about future strikes; but this time, unlike the other strikes, done on the 14th, I think you can count strikes against Saudi Arabia to include non-coms as well, just as have the Saudi/US strikes killed non-coms during Saudi/US strikes against Yemen.

I hope like hell that I am wrong on this; because one more strike, particularly involving civilians, will give Tel Aviv, and the Hawks in DC the "propaganda ammo" they need, causing them to close ranks, and demand that Trump strike Iran, to "protect" the Saudi Arabia oil infrastructure, and destroy Iran's oil infrastructure.

We have a couple of other articles I am going to link to, from "whatdoesitmean.com", which I think are significant here:

Saudis unveil "e vidence", that attacks were unquestionably sponsored by Iran, as the show drone missile debris

NO PROOF Tehran launched oil plant attack, but still expects the USA to do its dirty work for them.

Journalists in Chinese state media to be tested on loyalty to President Xi Jinping

About 10,000 reporters and editors in Beijing are expected to take ‘pilot tests’ next month using Xuexi Qiangguo mobile app.

Nationwide exams – with sections on Xi’s political thinking and Marxism – will be held later and press cards will only be issued to those who pass

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please do not believe, for one millisecond, that a number of powerful, corporate/politician-centric people here in the US, are not salivating, to have this same kind of "litmus test" done, to validate that everyone who calls themselves a "reporter" is completely on board with their country's leadership, even if that leadership is doing some things which will ultimately hurt that country, and greatly "injure" its economy.

I would like to politely suggest to China's President, that the citizens of the Unhinged, surveilled, State of Amerika, have a name for this kind of behaviour from alleged journalists/bloggers; this... is called "brown=nosing", and I am absolutely confident that you won't need a translator, or Chinese/English dictionary for a translation
on this, with your fine command of English.

We are often told, that truth is the first casualty of war; but before that war, truth becomes the first casualty of dictatorships, like the one you are ultimately preparing for your successor.

And I will guarantee you one thing, President Xi Jinping; when all the news comes from one dedicated source, if it is in paper format, your people will ultimately use it for wrapping fish, because they understand that the State's propaganda... and the reality of their lives, are light-years apart.

If their "sole source propaganda" comes as "readable, downloadable" from their computers, there will be systems developed, covertly, which will completely render the hard-drive unusable, so that nothing,ultimately, is saved, including, of course, blacklisted news, and party propaganda, so no one can be politically, or actually crucified, for telling the truth as they see it.

The future of your country seems to be getting slowly shaped, by something I would characterize as an "harmonic dissonance" between China's leadership and China's people; and Sir, this new decree of yours is profoundly disappointing.

Putin Calls for Unbiased Investigation of Saudi Aramco Attacks in Talks With Crown Prince

Saudi Aramco's oil refinery was severely crippled in an attack on 14 September, which has been claimed by Yemen’s Houthi movement. Despite this, the US has claimed it has evidence that it was in fact Iran that was behind the incident, something which the country has vehemently denied.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has during talks with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman called for an unbiased investigation to be carried out into the recent attack on Saudi oil facilities on 14 September, the president's press service reported.

"The issue of the attack on Saudi oil refineries has been discussed [during talks]. Vladimir Putin expressed his concern with regard to the situation and has called for conducting a thorough and unbiased investigation of the incident", the statement said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin's call for an "unimpeded, unbiased investigation" into these attacks was a stroke of absolute brilliance; such an investigation will need to be carried out through a time framework which, in the most forensically correct manner, will require that the individuals doing this work, will have all the time necessary, to come to a reasonable, fact-centric conclusion.

I sincerely hope that President Putin's proposal will be put into action; and President Trump, please feel just the tiniest bit of gratitude for what Putin has done for you, with this request/challenge; this can buy you time to make sure that Saudi Arabia is actually protected by American weaponry (which it was NOT, when the attacks hit)

What Putin is urging here, is a "way out", potentially, for the US and Iran to work out their differences on a number of issues.

But sadly, there are way too many, in the Bowels of Power, internationally, who would love to see this cascade into a world war, featuring Israel, the US, and Saudi Arabia on one side of the conflict, and Russia, China, and Iran, on the other.

I sure hope to hell that I am wrong on this, and that logic, and lucidity can triumph, and "win the day"; but whoever did this wants a war now, and this may just accelerate their plans for more ever-more-vicious targeting of Saudi oil infrastructure; the Saudi military; and Saudi civilians.

Washington Shooting Leaves 1 Person Dead, 5 Others Injured – Police

There is a Metropolitan Police Department presence on the scene of the shooting at 14th St. and Columbia Road in Northwest with DC Fire and EMS with DC Fire and EMS saying there are multiple victims, local WJLA-TV reported.

"Six individuals in the 1300 block of Columbia Road sustained gunshot wounds. One of those individuals has been pronounced deceased. The other five remaining individuals have been transported to the area hospitals with various gunshot wounds, ranging from non-critical to critical", local police commander Stuart Emerman said at a press briefing.

Several media previously reported citing the police that at least six people have been wounded in the incident.

?There has been no information yet on the gunner. Police said that the homicide unit has been called at the scene, according to Fox 5.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

First, prayers for the deceased; the wounded, and their families and friends.

But what I want to know is, was the shooter getting on, or getting off of some kind of psychiatric, antidepressive medication, perhaps SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Uptake Reinhibitors), right before this horrific incident happened?!?

It is a known fact that certain psychiatric medications can cause episodes of violent self-harm, or violent behaviour toward others.

We know this about District of Columbia Gun Laws, and a check at google.com reveals the following: 'Summary of District of Columbia Gun Laws
Metropolitan Police. All firearms must be registered, and this process acts as a permit to purchase. Individuals cannot possess ammunition without a valid registration of a firearm. ... You must be at least 21 years old to get a concealed carry permit in D.C.Aug 13, 2019'

And I have to think; one person with their head on straight, who was at the scene, and had a concealed carry permit, might have well stopped this person, cold, in their tracks.

DAMN!!

So please, if you are a family with kids, and mom and/or dad, has had psychiatric medications recommended for your kids (or by Doctor or NP, or a school mental health specialist), before you commit to doing this, please read the following, and make the decision for your kid and yourself, to look at the following website:

www.ssristories.org: Antidepressant Nightmares

Anti-depressant drugs are very much the vogue these days; but please, have a very clear understanding of the downsides here.

I'm not a physician, but one thing you may want to do (even if you have to pay out of pocket), is have a nutritional evaluation of your child done, before you commit to having them start on these meds.

And one place - which I always suggest to friends who have had not great diagnoses of whatever they are dealing with - is any Adventist Hospital and Clinic to which you happen to be close.

Their medical facilities are always rated very highly, and because the 7th Day Adventists are ovolactovegetarians, their statistics are incredibly good, for not getting things like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure; heart issues; etc... Food can have an incredible effect on both mood, and concentration.

I'm just saying; knowledge is power; please remember this.

Luongo: Will The Yemen War Be The End Of Saudi Arabia?

Authored by Tom Luongo, Zero Hedge

The attack on Saudi Arabia’s major oil processing station in Abqaiq over the weekend was a major turning point in global politics. It may be even bigger than many of us realize.

While forces within U.S. political circles, Israel and Saudi Arabia keep trying to shift the blame to Iran, the most likely scenario is that the Houthis in North Yemen were responsible for the attack as a follow up to last month’s hit which showed off the capabilities of their new drones.

That attack set the stage for the latest one in a classic case of the past being prologue. By showing the world it was capable of throwing drones anywhere in Saudi Arabia rebels in Yemen created plausibility for last weekend’s attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And there is a question which must be asked of our weapons makers, in closed door meetings ,with secure communications protocols in place, with President Trump attending every one of them, actually or virtually, particularly those who supported Candidate Trump when he ran for President in 2016;

Why did US military weapons have a 100 % failure rate during these attacks against the Saudi oil infrastructure?!?

Because I can tell you that global weapons buyers for their countries are looking at each other with astonishment, that the very weapons the US pedals to other countries, as the alleged "best of the best of the best", are the same weapons which failed, so critically, in the attack?!?

Grade-Rigging Scandal: Baltimore Students Missed 100+ Days Of School, Failed Classes, Still Graduated

For the last several years, we have been covering the grade-changing scandal in Baltimore City Public Schools (BCPS). Administrators, teachers, and parents continue to come forward about the widespread fraud that allows children to graduate, even though they've missed school or failed classes.

Project Baltimore, who has spearheaded the investigation into BCPS fraud, has uncovered another school where students missed more than 100 days of class or failed ten courses in three years, still graduated during the 2019 school year.

?
@FOXBaltimore

City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises accuses Project Baltimore of “sensationalism” and has “violated even the lowest standard of decency.” Fox45 requested an interview with Dr. Santelises concerning the allegations; we haven’t heard back. https://foxbaltimore.com/news/project-baltimore/city-schools-ceo-issue...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not expect any teacher here to get fired; I am reasonably certain that they were forced to do this by their Union Leadership, because the numbers in terms of actual class attendance and and accomplishment were so horrific.

I have every respect for the good teachers in our system; but unfortunately, the system tends to punish good teachers (remember the film, "Stand and Deliver?!?) while promoting those who do nothing, except encourage mediocrity, and bear responsibility for the innumerate; illiterate; and inability to think logically state of far too many of our high school students.

The only things for which they will be qualified, are getting hired for "Rent-a-mob" jobs, and whatever bounty of public assistance for which they may well qualify.

City Schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises may scream at Project Baltimore all she wants; but if the information here is true, she needs to turn in her resignation papers right now, so she can protect whatever cushy union retirement benefits are left to her.

Because the failures of this school, and broken promises to parents, and students has been a constant for some time now. The System is Broken, 2017; Angry Dad lashes out when his 12th grader tests at 4th grade mathematics
