"While there are powers in Europe which fear our views, or have views on us, we should keep an eye on them, their connections and oppositions, that in a moment of need, we may avail ourselves of their weakness with respect to others as well as ourselves, and calculate their designs and movements, on all the circumstances under which they exist." -- Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.

Town near Area 51 warns people to stay away from planned festival

The man behind a proposed raid of Area 51 is now organising a music festival in the town closest to the military base.

The nearest town to Area 51 has warned people to stay away from a music festival being organised by the man behind a call to arms that saw more than two million people sign up to storm the military base.

So many committed to the proposed raid of the complex in Nevada in the hope of seeing aliens that the US air force felt compelled to warn it "stands ready to protect America and its assets", and the Facebook event was eventually shut down after its organiser admitted it was a joke.

Trump Predicted in 2015 Bill Clinton Would Have a ‘Lot of Problems’ Due to His Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein

In the wake of convicted billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious reported suicide, many are speculating whether or not there was any foul play, particularly given the many powerful people who had longstanding relationships with Epstein – including Bill Clinton.

While Donald Trump also had a relationship with the late Epstein, he made a curious prediction about Bill Clinton during an interview in 2015.

The mysterious case of Jeffrey Epstein

The New York Times describes Epstein as "a hedge fund manager." However, Epstein's company, the blandly named Financial Trust Co., has no website, no record of any transactions, and no filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, strongly suggesting that he has never managed other people's money, as he long claimed.

The second mystery is, if the allegations against Epstein are true—and he admitted to at least some of the charges in a 2008 plea deal in Palm Beach County, Florida—how was he able to carry on for so many years without any significant interference by law enforcement? The current federal charges against Epstein appear to be a direct response to a recent blockbuster series of articles criticizing the federal government's handling of the Epstein case by Julie K. Brown of the Miami Herald.

Caught between an air blockade and southern suspicion, Yemeni patients are left to die

While the Saudi-led coalition imposes restrictions on Sanaa airport, forces in the south prevent those seeking treatment abroad from leaving through Aden.

Hussein Saeed, 45, has been suffering from liver cancer for the past year and has tried to receive proper treatment in Sanaa, the Yemeni capital currently held by Houthi rebels, without success.

The Saudi-led coalition battling the Houthis imposed restrictions on Sanaa airport on 9 August 2016, and with no commercial flights able to leave or enter, medicines cannot arrive in the city.

Over the past year, Saeed’s health has declined, and although he has been moved between several hospitals in the capital he has failed to receive proper healthcare.

Having heard of dozens of cancer patients dying in Sanaa, Saeed decided his best option would be to leave the country to receive medical treatment in India, where many other patients have received treatment for the disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, my dear readers, THIS is what our US alleged "leadership" has done for Yemen; apparently, it was not enough to be killing innocent children, women, and the medically fragile elderly, whose only "mistake" was being in the utterly wrong place, at the utterly wrong time; now, by not letting life-saving cancer drugs to get to its victims, the US is party to killing its cancer victims.

Hey, President Trump WAY TO GO!!

Killing cancer victims by not allowing medicine to get into the country, to kowtow to Saudi Arabia's grand scheme of killing innocent people because they were ill, WOW!! What an incredible choice!!

Mr. President, in this policy, people with even a modicum of intelligence understand, that you have utterly none, nor do you have any possible degree of compassion, to boot. In fact, you may well be a prototype bot, which is programmed to have companies in this country make as much money as they possibly can from war.

And regarding the 2020 campaign, considering the degree to which you allowed those independent voices in the press who stood up for you in 2016, get thrown under the proverbial bus, I do not understand anyone who would support you, other than those who have been making out like bandits, with magnificent profits soaring, courtesy of your being our country's Merchant of Death in Chief.

Missing wages, grueling shifts, and bottles of urine: The disturbing accounts of Amazon delivery drivers may reveal the true human cost of 'free' shipping

Everything in this story is also true for the people who work directly for Amazon's new in-house delivery service.
Too many packages to deliver. Long hours.Peeing in bottles. Access problems. Problems with the scanners and GPS. No time for breaks. Routing problems.A different route every day and a different delivery vehicle every day.Vehicles have been in wrecks,with members of the general public hurt and injured as well as drivers. The lower level management people are by and large good people who try to help,but their hands are tied by upper level management!
The Flex drivers are being phased out. The drivers who work directly for Amazon are treated just as horribly as the DSP drivers.
All so Bezos can make more money,tool around the Med on his yacht while sending pics of his penis to his girlfriend.
In the coming weeks I will expound on Amazon's mistreatment of drivers in more detail!

India Escalates Crackdown on Kashmir for Eid Holiday

Restrictions over the past eight days have been severe enough that a lot of Kashmiris have been all but confined to their homes. Indian forces went to the extent that reporters said the communications blackout meant some Kashmiris didn’t even know what was going on.

Indian forces expected that the Eid al-Adha holiday would lead to large protests in Kashmir, and in trying to prevent such demonstrations, the military imposed even more severe restrictions, including closing the largest mosque in Srinagar.

Muslims, who are the heavy majority of Kashmir, are allowed to go to mosques for the Eid, but only smaller mosques.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am chagrined at how the Indian government can be so bloody politically deaf, dumb, and blind as to what the Kashmiri people are asking for, which is an opportunity to create their own future.

That referendum, promised by Nehru, but never delivered upon by the Indian government, is a really big reason that Kashmiris do not believe that the Indian government doesn't care for them, in any reasonable or supportive way; unfortunately, that assessment has proven itself true, time after time.

Jeffrey Epstein Out in the Open

By Jon Rappoport

NOTE: This article concerns the reporting of Vicky Ward. I’m not automatically assuming her key point is factual, especially since it relies on an unnamed source, who is telling her about a private meeting which the source apparently did not attend. If, however, we assume the key point is accurate…

I realize many people aren’t satisfied unless they see something in print from a more mainstream source. So let’s try the Daily Beast (7/9/19) and writer Vicky Ward, who has had an extensive career as a reporter and editor (Vanity Fair, NY Post, HuffPost, etc.)

In her Daily Beast article, “Jeffrey Epstein’s Sick Story Played Out for Years in Plain Sight,” Ward attempts to shed light on a moment in time when a strange twist occurred in the Epstein saga. It involved Alexander Acosta...

Pakistan Mobilizing Forces At Kashmir Base Near Line Of Control: Report

India's Business Standard is reporting a major mobilization of Pakistani military forces underway along the border with India, citing government sources which talked to Asia's ANI news agency.

The contested Kashmir region is on edge following India last week taking the unprecedented step of revoking Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir's (J&K) autonomous status amid a military crackdown involving deployment of tens of thousands of Indian troops to the region.

"Three C-130 transport aircraft of the Pakistan Air Force were used on Saturday to ferry equipment to their Skardu air base opposite the Union Territory of Ladakh. The Indian agencies concerned are keeping a close eye on the movement of Pakistanis along the border areas," sources told ANI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pakistani Prime Minister Khan, I beg you not to do this.

And there are millions of reasons why, including the following reality:

Nearly one million Indians left homeless by landslides and floods

You, and your country, have an opportunity to appear magnanimous, and helpful right now.

Please, re-establish your, and your country's, relations with the Indian government.

For Pakistan to appear helpful, under these circumstances, would be a way to go down a better path to peace and understanding between India and Pakistan; I am asking you to pick the "high ground" here, right now.

And yes, I know it will take a lot of courage on your part, and on the part of your government, to walk down this path; but the alternative, a nuclear exchange between Pakistan and India, is utterly unthinkable,sir.

And I would gently and politely ask you to remember, that in the Chinese language, the ideogram for "crisis" and "opportunity" , are one in the same.

You and your government, as you and your cabinet decide what to do now, in light of these horrific natural disasters India is experiencing, can choose to do some good; please take this opportunity to show kindness to people who really need it right now; and sir, the world is waiting to see what you will do next.

And as a Christian pacifist activist, I am waiting, and watching patiently, to see what your government decides to do next.

Please tell me that it is not more death and destruction; the people of Kashmir have suffered enough, and they need to be granted the right to peaceful self-determination, a concept enshrined in the UN Charter, to which your country, India, and the US are signatories.

175+ killed, nearly a MILLION left homeless by landslides & floods in India (VIDEOS)

Floods and landslides across southern and western Indian states have killed nearly 200 people over the past week as the Indian Army intensifies its relief operations to help thousands stranded in desperate need of rescue.

Extreme weather conditions that have been battering the Indian states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala and Gujarat since last week forced hundreds of thousands of people to seek temporary shelters. The heavy rains also impacted travel in the region, disrupting train and airport connections.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this can only be characterized as horrific;' and you are most not likely to hear about this from the talking heads on corporate Presstitute channels.

If you have any charity which is special to you, please make sure that the Indian people get some help from it.

As a Methodist, I will be calling UMCOR today, which is a universal aid organisation which contributes aid where it is needed, and where I know the aid will actually do something for these people.

And Pakistan's Prime Minister, Imran Khan, you need to mobilize your people to help these stricken Indians, in a very public show of support during this catastrophe; it is going to make your leadership look like something which possibly, actually, can really, work, and may just may assist you, from walking away from potential war against India, to be a stalwart and responsible, neighbor of India. This can only be seen as good, Mr. Prime Minister.

And... you are welcome, sir!!

Militants Continue Accumulating Manpower, Hardware in Syria’s Idlib - Russian Military

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Terrorist groups continue boosting their presence in the south of the Idlib de-escalation zone in Syria, having recently dispatched there about 470 militants and additional military hardware, the head of the Russian centre for Syrian reconciliation said on Saturday.

"There has been recorded a transfer of about 120 militants of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham* [terror group, formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra], three armoured vehicles and four pickups with mounted heavy machine guns from the area near the town of Hesh," Maj. Gen. Alexei Bakin said at a briefing.

In addition, the Ajnad al-Kavkaz* terrorist group has sent to the contact line about 200 militants, five armoured vehicles, 10 pickups mounted with weapons and two trucks filled with bombs.

Near the settlement of Knedde, militants have, meanwhile, deployed 150 members of the Islamic Party of Turkestan* and 13 pickups with mounted mortars, multiple launch rocket systems and heavy machine guns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; are these militants being funded, armed, and trained by the US government?!?

Because who else has the power, the money at their command, to do this kind of thing?!? Very few state actors, that is for sure.

GLOBAL TIMES SHOWS DRAMATIC VIDEO OF CHINESE ARMY PREPARING FOR HONG KONG INVASION

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
The Hong Kong/China feud is going from bad to worse on Monday, when as reported earlier, the Hong Kong airport authority advised all passengers to leave the terminal buildings as soon as possible in an unprecedented disruption after thousands of anti-government protesters occupied the airport terminal building.

However, what confirmed that as Beijing has been warning for the past week, Hong Kong's insubordination will no longer be tolerated by Beijing, was a video - complete with dramatic World War III style music - published by the state-owned tabloid Global Times, which showed "The People's Armed Police have been assembling in Shenzhen, a city bordering Hong Kong, in advance of apparent large-scale exercises."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a point past which the Chinese government will not tolerate these demonstrations; and unfortunately for the people of Hong Kong, my guess is that the crackdown will come sooner, rather than later.

There will most likely be massive arrests and show trials, with intense imprisonments and tortures, in order to get people to confess to what they very well might not have done.

And right now, the Chinese government has every reason to slip back into industrial-strength dictatorship mode with a vengeance, between dealing with an overheated economy, and intense public criticism.

WATCH: STAR QUARTERBACK FALSELY ARRESTED AS COPS MISTAKE BIRD POOP FOR COCAINE

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Clinton, SC — Police incompetence coupled with the war on drugs is a dangerous mixture that all too often takes the lives of entirely innocent people and hurls them into turmoil and destruction. Not only does the war on drugs lay waste to the rights and lives of countless innocent people caught with substances deemed illegal by the state but many people who never possess these substances fall victim to drug warrior cops so hell bent on ruining lives that they will claim bird poop is cocaine and arrest someone. Seriously.

Last month, Shai Werts — GSU’s junior starting quarterback — was targeted for extortion when police claimed he was speeding. Werts was subsequently pulled over on July 31 in Clinton, South Carolina. The routine revenue collection stop quickly morphed into a rights violating nightmare for Werts, however, when cops claimed the bird feces on the hood of his car was cocaine.

CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS HOPES TO HOLD GITHUB RESPONSIBLE FOR HOSTING DATA FROM CAPITAL ONE BREACH

SOURCE: TIM CUSHING @ TECH DIRT
As soon as the Capital One breach was announced, you knew the lawsuits would follow. Handling the sensitive info of millions of people carelessly is guaranteed to net the handler a class-action lawsuit or two, but this one -- filed by law firm Tycko & Zavareeri -- adds a new twist.

The 28-page lawsuit filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California asserted that GitHub "actively encourages (at least) friendly hacking."

It notes that the hacked Capital One information was posted online for months and alleges that the company violated state law to remove the information. "GitHub had an obligation, under California law, to keep off (or to remove from) its site Social Security numbers and other Personal Information," the suit says

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) why don't companies take better care of the data they mine?!?One would think that in the 21st century, breaches like this would not happen, but yet, it seems to happen on a pretty basis.

UN TO AMERICA: OPEN THE BORDER, KILL MORE BABIES

SOURCE: THE NEW AMERICAN
Reprinted with permission from TheNewAmerican.com.

Behaving more and more like the global government it seeks to become, the United Nations has stepped up its attacks against America — especially the growing efforts to protect the Southern border and the lives of unborn children. Even under President Donald Trump, the UN has continued to bark orders at America as if the U.S. government were a mere administrative unit in what globalists describe as "the New World Order."

In a recent pro-abortion screed, for example, a spokesman for the UN “human rights” apparatus said the global body was “very concerned” about state laws proliferating across the United States that regulate or restrict the killing of pre-born babies. Killing babies is a "human right," at least according to the UN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, UN; where is your money to make this happen?!>

I would politely suggest, it is in "Nowheresville", because this cannot happen without one of your massive funding schemes; and unless you are completely brain dead, coupled with sleeping under a rock for the last 30 years, you have to know that the national debt of the US, is around, give or take, somewhere around $ +/- $23 trillion dollars.

So, unless you can fund this, because the average American is drowning in debt right now, stop with the calls to make these programs real.

We cannot afford this, and small US businesses are paying an unholy, horrific price, for listening to what the UN has to say, on any possible issue.

COPS STILL NOT CHARGED AFTER DUMPING 26 ROUNDS INTO TRUCK FULL OF SMALL CHILDREN, SHOOTING 3 OF THEM

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Oklahoma City, OK — As TFTP reported in April, a rather disturbing scene unfolded in Oklahoma City as police officers attempting to kill a robbery suspect opened fire on four small children, shooting three of them. Now, the family and residents are demanding answers and the mother says the children have a long way to go before they are healed.

According to WPSD, medical records say a bullet pierced the left frontal lobe of 4-year-old Asia Jacobs’ brain. Her 5-year-old brother suffered a skull fracture and her 1-year-old sister was left with deep facial cuts. Asia’s 2-year-old brother was not hit.

The children’s mother, Olivia Hill, says: “Emotionally, they’re not OK. Physically, they’re here.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, potential murders against children are something that certain US police departments are encouraging.

Otherwise, this would never, ever, have taken place.

I would politely suggest, that those living in the state of Oklahoma, vote with their feet, and leave; I would suggest that ANY symposium thinking about having their conventions in this state, withdraw their sponsorship,immediately, and find a place a little more "kid-friendly", with state governments not attempting to murder them.

7 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT JEFFREY EPSTEIN'S DEATH THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA NEEDS TO BE TALKING ABOUT

SOURCE: ENDOFTHEAMERICANDREAM.COM
Did Jeffrey Epstein commit suicide or was he murdered? This is a question that is being debated by millions of Americans right now, and without a doubt this is the biggest story of this news cycle. Unfortunately, the mainstream media is already dropping the ball. Instead of going wherever the evidence leads them, there already seems to be a tremendous effort to marginalize any explanations for his death other than “suicide”. And it may turn out that “suicide” is where the evidence takes us, but while things are unclear we should not be afraid to ask the hard questions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless and until a tox screen was performed right after Epstein's death, which did not happen, we have zero way of knowing the exact cause of death.

Various members of a number "alphabet soup" US agencies, have a number of toxins, created to be in, and out of a human body so quickly, as to leave no clue whatsoever as to what actually killed those "embarrassments" to US domestic or foreign policies.

Epstein was such an embarrassment, so had to be done away with, in a manner which couldn't be stated by the Coroner.

This is the reason we have no real understanding of the cause of death here, nor will we in the future.

Whatever family the guy had, has got to be "running for the hills" right now, because they understand that not to do this, means their days on this planet, are numbered.

4 POLITICAL PARTIES IN TURKISH PARLIAMENT CALL FOR EXTRADITION OF GULEN FROM US

SOURCE: GEOPOLITICS ALERT
ANKARA (TM) – FOUR POLITICAL PARTIES IN THE TURKISH PARLIAMENT ISSUED A JOINT STATEMENT ON FRIDAY CALLING FOR THE EXTRADITION FROM THE US OF TURKISH-ISLAMIC CLERIC FETHULLAH GÜLEN, WHO IS ACCUSED BY THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT OF MASTERMINDING A FAILED COUP ATTEMPT ON JULY 15, 2016.
The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), the Republican People’s Party (CHP), the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and the ?Y? (Good) Party said the US should take the necessary steps as soon as possible for Gülen’s extradition to Turkey.

Only the Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) dissented.

Erdo?an accuses Gülen, who has lived in self-imposed exile in the US for almost two decades, of masterminding the failed coup, which claimed the lives of 249 people, although Gülen strongly denies any involvement in the abortive putsch.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question I have to ask, is why has the US government, been so lapse in honoring a request from a NATO sister country?!?

And for what eventuality in Turkey, is this guy being protected?!? Does the Trump Administration, see him as a replacement for Erdogan?!? There are truly more questions than answers here.

INDUSTRY CITES 3M EXPERIMENT THAT EXPOSED CANCER PATIENTS TO PFAS TO CLAIM THE CHEMICALS AREN’T SO BAD

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
Defenders of the chemicals known as PFAS have seized upon an industry-funded study of cancer patients as evidence that the compounds used to make Teflon, firefighting foam, and many other products aren’t as dangerous as they seem.

The study, which was funded by the Minnesota-based global conglomerate 3M and published in February 2018 in the journal Toxicological Sciences, exposed 49 terminal cancer patients to high doses of PFOA. Now recognized as a widespread water contaminant, PFOA was originally developed by 3M.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This stuff is vile, and completely hazardous to one's health; the intelligent thing to do, is to avoid it as much as is humanly possible.

EPSTEIN SILENCED: MOVE ALONG, NOTHING TO SEE HERE

On the day it was reported Jeffrey Epstein was arrested, I wrote that his days were numbered. I said no way in hell will the names of the elite pedos at the top of the pyramid be exposed, and that meant Epstein would disappear. Forever.

We’re told he committed suicide. No details, no video, not even a press conference. Just that Jeffrey Epstein is dead. No autopsy report. Nothing. Cold stone silence—and a whole lot of speculation by millions of Americans, the folks who are lied to in pathological fashion, day after day, until north becomes south, up is down, and left is right in Bizarro World.

Now that Jeff’s “dead,” there will not be a trial, no discovery, no cross-examination. The information stream ended with the unsealed document, which basically says little and implicates nobody beyond a few lower-level politicians and celebrities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nimmo always nails it, as did Mike and I, before Epstein was about to stand trial.

SCIENTISTS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT EBOLA IS NOW CURABLE

SOURCE: THEMINDUNLEASHED.COM
(TMU) — Scientists have declared that the era in which the Ebola virus is considered an incurable disease has come to an end.

The announcement, made Monday, comes after two experimental treatments proved so effective in recent trials that they will now be offered to all patients in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The country is currently in the throes of a year-long outbreak of Ebola—the second-largest outbreak ever.

The disease, which leads to severe cases of fever, headache, and hemorrhaging, normally kills about half of those infected, yet the latest outbreak has claimed the lives of around 70 percent of those who have contracted it. According to Prof. Jean-Jacques Muyembe, the director-general of the National Institute for Biomedical Research in Kinshasa, many have walked into Ebola treatment centers only to leave the centers dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers that this proves true; having a real treatment that works here, would be nothing short of a miracle for all those suffering from this ailment, or exposed to it.

Something Huge Seems to Have Happened Around Area 51 Over the Weekend

It looks as though something big was taking place around Area 51 over the weekend, according to “fragmented reports from various sources” compiled by The Drive.

The report notes that “significant tests” could have been happening over the weekend after learning that Notices To Airman (NOTAMs) had been published that marked certain areas within the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR) off limits to any air traffic at any altitude.

The NOTAMs are generally for military aircrews, not civilian or commercial air traffic. They were first pointed out by an aviation enthusiast on Twitter...

How the Turkish Government Exploits Social Media Removal Requests to Silence Criticism

By Arzu Geybullayeva

Hundreds—if not thousands—of Twitter accounts have been targeted by the Turkish government using the platform’s “Country Withheld Content” tool (CWC). In 2010, Twitter unveiled the tool which allows it to censor content on a country by country basis. At that time, Twitter may not have completely envisaged how its tool could be abused by a number of of increasingly authoritarian countries where social media platforms have been targeted by the authorities in the face of growing crackdown and censorship, most notably Turkey.

Facebook ‘News’: A bold step toward total control of reality?

Facebook's plan to hook ad-cash-deprived mainstream outlets on licensing payouts seems to be an attempt to hijack narrative control en route to total domination of the infosphere – the ultimate safe space, Zuckerberg-style.

More than two thirds of American adults get their news from social media at the same time that more than half expect that news to be "largely inaccurate." Perhaps sensing a business opportunity, Facebook has moved in to manage that news consumption, reportedly offering mainstream outlets millions of dollars per year to license their content in order to present it to users authoritatively, as "Facebook News" – having long since ceased trusting users to share news among themselves.

But trusting Facebook to deliver the news is like trusting a cheetah to babysit your gazelles – all that's left at the end is likely to be a pile of bones.

Leading English-language news organizations have provided extensive and dramatic coverage of anti-government protests in Venezuela, but mostly ignored large-scale rallies against US sanctions, which took place over the weekend.

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans flooded the streets of the country’s capital, Caracas, on Saturday to denounce the economic blockade and sanctions imposed by the US. Many were wrapped in national flags and sported red shirts, typically worn by the supporters of the government. The rallies were held under the slogan ‘No More Trump’.

FBI agents were seen raiding Jeffrey Epstein's private US Virgin Island, which has been dubbed 'Pedophile Island', as the sex trafficking probe around the now deceased billionaire intensifies, as exclusive DailyMailTV footage shows the search being carried out.

A large group of FBI officers were seen disembarking speedboats at the pier of Little St James on Monday morning and driving around on golf carts after the 66-year-old was found dead by suicide in his New York jail cell early on Saturday morning.

Other officials with 'FBI' lettering on clear display were later seen overlooking the crystal blue sea from the top of Epstein's remote luxury home off the coast of St Thomas.

Trump Says Kim Jong Un Sent Him A ‘Small Apology’ For Testing Short-Range Missiles

President Donald Trump said Saturday that negotiations with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un could begin soon and that the leader issued a “small apology” for testing short-range missiles.

“In a letter to me sent by Kim Jong Un, he stated, very nicely, that he would like to meet and start negotiations as soon as the joint U.S./South Korea joint exercise are over. It was a long letter, much of it complaining about the ridiculous and expensive exercises,” Trump wrote Saturday on Twitter.

Bricks, death threats and fury: A last-ditch fight against California’s vaccine crackdown

California’s debate over a proposed law to tighten kids’ exemptions for mandatory vaccines was never subtle.

Lawmakers sponsoring the bill say they’ve been receiving death threats for months. Someone in June mailed Assembly members dozens of bricks etched with appeals to kill the measure. On Twitter, celebrities heckle vaccine proponents and each side warns of deadly consequences.

Now, as lawmakers head into the final weeks of this year’s legislative session, anti-vaccine advocates are turning to an out-of-state political operative known for provocative campaigns in a last-ditch effort to undermine a bill that Gov. Gavin Newsom has already indicated he’d sign.

Trump targets legal migrants who get food aid

US President Donald Trump's administration is to make it more difficult for poorer legal migrants to extend their visas or gain permanent resident status (a green card).

The rule targets migrants who rely on public benefits, such as food aid or public housing, for more than a year.

Their applications will be rejected if the government decides they are likely to rely on public assistance in future.

The rule change would reinforce "ideals of self-sufficiency," officials said.

Universal Cancels Release of ‘The Hunt,’ Where Liberals Kill ‘Deplorables’ for Sport

Universal has canceled the release of the film The Hunt, reportedly featuring liberal elites hunting and killing “deplorables” for sport. The decision comes after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and President Donald Trump calling “liberal Hollywood” racist and full of violence.

“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film,” the studio said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”

Queen Elizabeth’s Son Might Be Dragged Deeper Into Epstein Probe After Sex Offender’s Death

US financier and socialite Jeffrey Epstein apparently took his own life at a New York prison, where he had been held since last month on child sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. The news came just hours after a bulk of documents, raising suspicions against Epstein’s powerful friends, including Prince Andrew, were released.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, may come under new scrutiny following suspected sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide, the Daily Mail claims, citing an unnamed legal source. According to the outlet, following the death of the prime suspect, an FBI probe could now focus their “full attention” on his suspected associate, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, said to have also been friends with the British royal.

US FEDERAL COURT EXPOSES DEMOCRATIC PARTY CONSPIRACY AGAINST ASSANGE AND WIKILEAKS

In a ruling published two weeks ago, Judge John Koeltl of the US District Court for the Southern District of New York delivered a devastating blow to the US-led conspiracy against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

In his ruling, Judge Koeltl, a Bill Clinton nominee and former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, dismissed “with prejudice” a civil lawsuit filed in April 2018 by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) alleging WikiLeaks was civilly liable for conspiring with the Russian government to steal DNC emails and data and leak them to the public.

Jennifer Robinson, a leading lawyer for Assange, and other WikiLeaks attorneys welcomed the ruling as “an important win for free speech.”

The decision exposes the Democratic Party in a conspiracy of its own to attack free speech and cover up the crimes of US imperialism and the corrupt activities of the two parties of Wall Street. Judge Koeltl stated:
