BELARUS - A U.S. SPONSORED COLOR REVOLUTION IS UNDERWAY

SOURCE: MOON OF ALABAMA
U.S engineered attempts to overthrow a foreign government by stirring civil arrests are usually named after a color or, at times, a flower. Thus we had an "rose revolution" in Georgia, a "green movement" in Iran and an "orange revolution" in the Ukraine.

But now the CIA and its assortment of supporting organizations seems to have run out of color choices. How else can one explain that their latest attempt in Belarus. is called a "slipper revolution".

Saudi Airstrike Kills 13 Civilians in Yemen

An airstrike from the US-backed Saudi-led coalition hit a vehicle carrying civilians in north Yemen on Monday. The airstrike killed 13 people, including four children. The same day, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres removed the Saudi coalition from a global list of parties who have harmed children in conflicts.

The international humanitarian group Save the Children said the victims were on their way home from a local market when the vehicle was suddenly bombed. The Houthi’s Health Ministry identified 11 of the victims, which included one woman and four children, ages 12-14.

The coalition often targets civilian infrastructure, which is why Guterres’s move to remove them from the “blacklist” drew sharp condemnation from human rights groups. Saudi warplanes have hit schools, hospitals, water treatment plants, markets, weddings, and other civilian targets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to guess that when countries are as wealthy as is Saudi Arabia, one can buy people like UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres as your geopolitical whores, and deny any culpability for murdering civilian innocents; hey, Guterres, what was your price here?!?

We're very keen to know, and right the hell now!!

Netanyahu Still Seeking Defense Minister’s Approval for Annexation: Likud sources say Netanyahu is looking to dissolve coalition government

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that he is still seeking approval of his annexation plan by Defense Minister Benny Gantz, a requirement to gain the Trump administration’s support. Officials from Gantz’s Blue and White party have said they cannot approve a plan until Netanyahu properly outlines one.

Speaking at a recent meeting with his Likud party, Netanyahu said he doesn’t have a map ready. “I wanted to bring annexation for approval soon, but the map isn’t ready yet,” Netanyahu said. The prime minister also said he is not sure where the Blue and White party stands.

The “peace plan” released by the Trump administration in January called for Israeli sovereignty over settlements in the West Bank and parts of the Jordan Valley, an area making up approximately one-third of the West Bank. The plan was immediately rejected by Palestinians, but Netanyahu intends on going through with the annexation and is looking to start on July 1st.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Netanyahu is so hell-bent on doing this starting 1 July, to the point of potentially even dissolving the coalition government, and risking yet another election where nothing really gets sorted, is more than a little scary, both for Israel and the Middle East in general.

Today is 16 June, so Netanyahu has precisely 14 days to pull this "map" together; is he considering doing this without a map, possibly?!?

He is still facing those corruption charges, which are not going away, making him "geopolitically wounded" in Israel; and no animal, or human, is more dangerous than when they are wounded, either physically... or with humans, geopolitically.

This is a very dangerous time for Israel; I hope that there are some "adults in the room" in the Knesset, telling him, "Bibi, not so fast here on this annexation, please!!"

North Korea blows up diplomatic office amid escalating tensions with South Korea

North Korea blew up a liaison office building it operates with South Korea, officials in Seoul said Tuesday, as tensions on the Korean Peninsula escalated amid stalled denuclearization talks between Pyongyang and the Trump administration.

Seoul’s Unification Ministry said it was still trying to determine precisely what happened. But it confirmed that the joint liaison office, opened in 2018 to foster better relations between the rival Koreas, was destroyed by North Korea at the border town of Kaesong.

The targeting of the building by North Korea comes as Pyongyang has repeatedly warned Seoul that it needs to prevent defectors and activists from sending anti-North Korea propaganda leaflets across the border via balloons and drones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely does not bode well for peace at all; at least (hopefully), the building was not occupied when the North Koreans blew it up.

Democrats (Accidentally) Make The Case Against Teachers' Unions

Via IssuesInsights.com,

In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests/riots calling for “defunding the police,” Democrats have started targeting police unions, saying they are obstacles to accountability and reform. Do they realize that the same can be said of teachers’ unions?

Via IssuesInsights.com,

In the wake of George Floyd’s death and the subsequent protests/riots calling for “defunding the police,” Democrats have started targeting police unions, saying they are obstacles to accountability and reform. Do they realize that the same can be said of teachers’ unions?

“The greater the political pressure for reform, the more defiant the unions often are in resisting it — with few city officials, including liberal leaders, able to overcome their opposition,” the Times reports.

No kidding.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here in Indiana, the teachers are not unionized, but looking at our young family members, the quality of education our young students are getting, is nothing short of outstanding.

In looking at the youth in my church, the precise same thing can be said.

But if unions can commit so much money to prevent change, how is change going to happen?!?

The short answer is, it cannot.

Manipulating The Masses: Edward Bernays & Why The System Needs Your Compliance

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

You are being controlled. You are being manipulated. You are being brainwashed. If you are still stuck believing that your vote counts and choosing sides is “moral” in a system set up against you from day one, the propaganda has worked.

In this video, we look at the ideas of Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, and a pioneering mind behind the field of public relations and modern propaganda – particularly his ideas on how group psychology, and the illusion of choice, can be used to manipulate the masses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have given up voting in national elections, because at 71, I understand fully about this "illusion of choice"; and the hell of it is, no matter for whom I have voted in previous elections, the bi-partisan war party has always won.

Post-Vietnam, I had hoped for a country which would pull itself together and address the endemic problems of poverty and the racial divides, which have always existed here, but have been exacerbated by every economic downturn we have experienced; that hasn't happened.

The anger which has exploded since the murder of George Floyd has been simmering for a long time, and until these very real issues are addressed, the anger will continue, and we may well see our inner cities continue to burn, which breaks my heart.

Please remember; a lot of the businesses we have seen burned to the ground in these riots, were the life's work of many African American, Asian, and Hispanic entrepreneurs, whose economic futures are also in ruins.

Whitney: Do Deep State Elements Operate Within The Protest Movement?

Does anyone believe the nationwide riots and looting are a spontaneous reaction to the killing of George Floyd?

It’s all too coordinated, too widespread, and too much in-sync with the media narrative that applauds the “mainly peaceful protests” while ignoring the vast destruction to cities across the country. What’s that all about? Do the instigators of these demonstrations want to see our cities reduced to urban wastelands where street gangs and Antifa thugs impose their own harsh justice? That’s where this is headed, isn’t it?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To me, one of the worst forms of child abuse in this country, and it is endemic in many of our inner cities, is to let kids pass from grade to grade, learning nothing, and "graduating" from high school innumerate; illiterate; and illogical.

This creates a permanent underclass in this country, which is always going to need to abide by the rules, and political strictures of its ruling class, to be "taken care of by the system", and will be punished like hell, including unto death, if they defy those strictures, either deliberately, or accidentally.

And we had better wake the hell up to the reality that not all countries do this to their kids in their inner cities.

Kumon schools, and the private schools like them, have shown the US, and the rest of the world, how to do this; they find out where the child in functioning, make learning fun, so the kid wants to come back to school, and brings them up to the best level they can be.

Of course, these teachers are not unionized, so the educational excellence they create, also winds up on the proverbial "cutting room floor." (what is a cutting room in the age of digital film, BTW?!?)

Tyler, you're giving your age away here!!!

Facebook showcases feature in its business communication tool Workplace that lets employers ban topics like 'unionize'

Facebook is touting a new feature inside its 'Workplace' communication software that allows employers to block words like 'unionize' from trending.

According to a report from The Intercept, the feature was showed off in an internal presentation by the company this week and explicitly used the word 'unionize' as an example of words that employers may want to block from trending in the software.

‘Community policing’ is a trick – new enforcers for the same oppressors, not a dismantling of tyranny

As the massive anti-police-brutality protests sweeping the US are diverted into calls to “defund the police” and to replace them with community-based enforcers, Americans would be wise to keep an eye on “who benefits.”

But, if nothing else, the George Floyd killing has reminded Americans that we don’t have a functioning system. US police kill an average of 1,000 civilians every year, with just one percent of those killings leading to an indictment – never mind a conviction. Cops typically receive many more hours of training in target practice than in conflict de-escalation.

Yet many countries manage to operate police forces that maintain a semblance of order without racking up a four-digit body count every year. There are plenty of reform strategies US police forces could adopt, starting with holding cops accountable to the same laws as citizens (i.e. murder and theft are illegal).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping (and as a Christian, praying) that President Trump's soon-forthcoming Executive Order on Police Reform is intelligently crafted to focus on conflict de-escalation, but balanced with the ability to deal with the violent, repeat offenders in a more intelligent way than does the US penal system allow for at this point in time.

I have a "hug and a punch" relationship with the documentaries of Michael Moore, (and my "punches" are all soft taps on the shoulder!), but he did a brilliant piece called "Where to Invade Next?", where he looks at how other cultures are solving their problems perhaps more intelligently than are their American cousins.

One of the places he visited was a Norwegian prison, where the male population lived in dorms, actually got something approximating some education and drug counseling; and where visits with family were encouraged.

The end result was far less recidivism than we have here in the US, and people tended to stay out of trouble better than did their American counterparts.

‘Proud to be one of the ‘bad actors’ on RT,’ says Rose McGowan after DHS report smearing channel for coverage of BLM protests

American actress Rose McGowan said she is “proud” to be one of the so-called “bad actors” appearing on RT after the US Department of Homeland Security criticized the channel for covering protests over George Floyd's death.
In a bulletin reported this week, the DHS accused Russia, China and Iran of using state-owned media to “amplify criticism” of the US in relation to Floyd's death in May. The unarmed black man died at the hands of a police officer who kneeled on his neck for nine minutes ignoring his pleas for life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But what if some of this coverage is actually reasonable, and just?!?

It would appear to me that DHS has some fundamentally more important things to do in this country..... perhaps like, peacefully, taking back the autonomous zone in Seattle, known now by the acronym CHAZ, if that is possible?!?

How long is it's mayor willing to allow what is happening to continue, and at what point will the devolution here be made to stop?!?

That question right now.... is anyone's guess.

UPDATE: this is now called "Capitol Hill Occupied Protests, or CHOP for short. (Sigh; either way, these protestors are looking at a world of hurt, if they believe this is going to be allowed to become a permanent, "no-go" encampment zone.)

Footage Of Anti-Maskers At OC Board Meeting: MUST SEE

Over 100 anti-mask citizens spoke at this very contentious board of supervisors meeting in Orange County, California on May 26. After the meeting, many people went to protest at County Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick's home. She resigned the next day in shame, and her replacement rescinded the face mask order. This is a blueprint. It's important to note that nothing that was said by anyone at this meeting was a "threat" as falsely claimed, because NO ONE was arrested for threats. If someone had actually threatened a government official, the cops would have arrested and imprisoned them in two seconds.

Robert 'Rich Dad, Poor Dad' Kiyosaki: What The Elites Don't Want You To Know

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad, Poor dad says there’s something the elitists don’t want you to know. There’s a simple way to take back your power, and it involves removing yourself from any centralized banking system.

These centralized systems were all set up for the elite by the elite, and they don’t want you to know you can remove yourself from the system, or the Matrix, so to speak. All you have to do is invest and spend outside of their system. Decentralized systems are already in place, and the key to breaking free involves understanding that the central banks were not set up to help you.

A Shocking Eye-Witness Account Of What's Really Happening During The Seattle Riots

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

A social media post (which has been removed) by a member of the Washington National Guard has been shared more than 7000 times since it was written on June 12th. It’s a true education in mob mentality.

As Toby Cowern says, “Look how much ‘othering’ has been done already. Once that’s happening there’s a big problem.”

He’s right – and here’s the shocking truth about what’s really going on in Seattle from a person who had a front-row ticket to the mayhem.

You may be completely on your own.
As you can see, you can’t depend on anyone to come and save you when unrest shows up in your neighborhood. The people who were there, willing, and able to defend Seattle were forced to stand down. You have to expect to be completely on your own. Learn more about how to stay safe during civil unrest scenarios here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never been more grateful for being in an essentially very rural part of the country, where neighbors know who you are, and are very polite, and kind from the heart.

I am not a confrontational person, but there seems to be some agendas driving this kind of behaviour which are not actually in favor of We the People; that concerns me.

Mike and I peacefully demonstrated against the coming war against Iraq on Oahu, all the time being watched and photographed by someone who could well have been an IDF agent; we were not sure.

But the more violent these demonstrations become, the more concerned I am about them being used as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and impose martial law in this country; I am hoping and praying that I am wrong on this.

"You Can't Rally But We Can Protest!"

These people want you to believe that this pandemic is caused by some magical woke virus, one which somehow skips those who have the right politics. What it actually does is raise the suspicion that Democrats and progressives have wanted to keep the economy shut down and people at home as long as possible to affect the outcome of the November election. Your job and your family or your church (also protected by the First Amendment) are not important. Our joining in large crowds to protest is.

There is almost assuredly going to be a spike in COVID cases and it will also almost assuredly be put on red-state governors and the President holding rallies. But Democratic activists and politicians themselves created this situation. They encouraged the world to disregard lockdown and people will now follow their lead, no matter how much they are scolded by the media. These people think we’re all stupid. We’re not.

From Occupation to ‘Occupy’: The Israelification of American domestic security

One of the first comprehensive surveys of Israeli training of US local and federal law enforcement officials.
By Max Blumenthal

(Editor’s note: The eruption of national protests against police brutality following the murder of George Floyd have shed new light on Israel’s training of local police officers across the country.

100 members of the 800-strong Minneapolis police department were trained at a conference in Israel in 2012. That means at least one of every eight members the city’s force has been influenced by the methods of an occupying apartheid entity.

Pentagon Starts Bailing Out Companies That have Lost Business Due to Coronavirus

The Defense Department is sending millions of dollars to keep companies afloat, and more deals are expected.

The Pentagon has begun to bail out U.S. companies that have seen large parts of their business dry up amid the coronavirus pandemic, in a bid to make sure they can still build weapons.

On Wednesday, officials announced that five mid-tier defense companies had received a total of $135 million to “help sustain defense-critical workforce capabilities in body armor, aircraft manufacturing, and shipbuilding,” according to a Defense Department statement.“These actions will help to retain critical workforce capabilities throughout the disruption caused by COVID-19 and to restore some jobs lost because of the pandemic,” Lt. Col. Mike Andrews, a Defense Department spokesman, said in the statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Crumbs for the people who really need the help; massive assistance to the companies which make things that kill.

Folks, what is wrong with this picture?!?

BLOODY EVERYTHING.

Pompeo Tells US Jewish Group China a Growing Threat to US, Israel

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a speech to the American Jewish Committee (AJC) annual conference, centering on mounting US hostility toward China, and arguing that China and its foreign policy are a mounting challenge to both the US and Israel.

The AJC tends to take positions favorable to Israel, though in general the interests of Israel and China don’t conflict or intersect much. Pompeo played up the idea that China is a threat to the American “way of life” and endangers everyone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE tell me that this is not the same guy who is planning to meet with Chinese leadership in Hawaii in the next couple of weeks to "ratchet down tensions!!"

Vatican Insider Says COVID Is A “Colossal Operation of Social Engineering”

Leaving religion aside, I think this letter is yet another example that has emerged over the years outlining one of the biggest issues that faces our world today, people who want to continue to manipulate human consciousness for ulterior motives, and do so by going as far to creating, funding and even sometimes faking events in order to justify their proposed solutions to the problem they created, just as Edward Snowden recently said with regards to the new coronavirus, stating that it’s being used push more authoritarian measures on the human population.

Black UC Berkeley History Professor: BLM as DNC fundraiser-front + George Floyd 6 felony convictions + useful idiot protesters = .01% slave-masters dividing America again (Bonus: two film takes of George Floyd’s arrest + Obama Tweet of Floyd week before)

Hat tips: David Icke, ZeroHedge

A Black UC Berkeley History Professor wrote an open letter to voice argument that Black Lives Matter (BLM) promotes division and ongoing slavery by blaming Whites rather than oligarchs for Black problems, honoring a 6-time convicted felon, lying to the public when BLM donations go to Democratic political candidates (like “You ain’t Black” if you don’t vote for me Joe Biden), and diminishing Black agency.

Five minutes of Candace Owens’ support that this is disingenuous “Black card” reverse racism (Candace’s longer discussion here):

The professor wrote anonymously in fear of losing his job for being “racist,” and becoming unemployable. UC Berkeley’s History Department Tweeted to condemn the anonymous letter.

Democrats are reportedly HIDING Biden’s economic advisers (as well as Joe himself) - and there is a simple reason for that

By offering no specifics about his policies or advisers, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is letting supporters project their hopes and dreams onto his campaign. The strategy works, so long as he doesn’t open his mouth.
After drawing outrage from progressives for having Larry Summers – a neoliberal economist who ran the Treasury under Bill Clinton and later Harvard University – advising the campaign, back in April, Biden’s handlers have decided to keep mum about his advisers going forward.

Anyone advising Biden has been sworn to secrecy, banned from even acknowledging their relationship with the campaign, let alone revealing the names of other members, according to a New York Times feature on Thursday, titled ‘Biden’s Brain Trust on the Economy: Liberal and Sworn to Silence’.

“Simply put, do not talk to the press,” according to an email from the campaign the Times somehow obtained.

Pompeo Going to Meet Chinese Officials in Hawaii – Reports

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is going to hold a meeting with Chinese government officials in Hawaii, media reported.

Details of the meeting are being currently finalized, the Politico newspaper reported, citing two sources.

The US Department of State and the Chinese Embassy in the United States have not commented on the reports yet, Politico added.

Under President US Donald Trump's administration, relations between the two countries have considerably soured, with Washington accusing Beijing of unfair trade practices, human rights violations in some of its regions, and encroachment on the special status of Hong Kong. China has denied the accusations and, in its turn, pointed to various violations of international law on the part of the United States.

Treasury chief refusing to disclose recipients of virus aid

Building ramparts of secrecy around a $600 billion-plus coronavirus aid program for small businesses, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has moved from delay to denial in refusing outright to disclose the recipients of taxpayer-funded loans.

Mnuchin told Congress at a hearing this week that the names of loan recipients and the amounts are “proprietary information.” While he claimed the information is confidential, ethics advocates and some lawmakers see the move as an attempt to dodge accountability for how the money is spent.

Businesses struggled to obtain loans in the early weeks of the program, and several hundred publicly traded companies received loans despite their likely ability to get the money from private financial sources. Publicly shamed, a number of big corporations said they would return their loans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The secrecy around these loans has to do with the fact that it was the most monied companies in the US which got the lion's share of the prize here, and the current Administration doesn't want it's "base" to understand that, of course.

The Worst of All Possible Worlds? Echoes of Orwell’s Dystopian 1984. Mass Surveillance, Police State Rule, Struggle to Survive…

Longterm harm caused by US policies at home and abroad are far removed from a Panglossian best of all possible worlds view.

What’s going on has echoes of Orwell’s dystopian 1984.

Both right wings of the US war party wage forever wars against invented enemies.

Mass surveillance, controlling the message, and countering resistance are what police state rule is all about, how the US operates domestically, what it wants imposed on other nations worldwide.

The disparity between super-wealth and growing poverty in the US is greater than any time since the 19th century gilded age.

The nation’s economic policy elevates all yachts to unprecedented levels while protracted main street Depression harms ordinary Americans with nothing ongoing to change things.

Countless millions of US households face unacceptable choices between paying rent or servicing mortgages, seeking increasingly unaffordable medical care when needed, heating homes in winter, and feeding family members.

Video: Hearing Is Not Like Seeing: NATO’s Terrorists Burning Syrian Wheat Crops

A video clip shared by local farmers from Ras Al-Ayn showing an inferno burning their livelihood before their eyes, hundreds of acres of wheat on fire just as the crop is due to harvest.

We’ve been reporting about these fires in areas of operation of the NATO’s Turkish (Orwellian-named) ‘Spring of Peace’ military operation in northern, and especially in northeastern Syria regions as well as in areas where remnants and sleeper cells of NATO-sponsored terrorists of ISIS and its affiliates are active in the south of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion story at globalresearch.ca, with the following headline:

The US Admits They Are to Blame for Hunger in Syria

The article goes on to state: "United States Special Envoy to Syria, James Jeffrey, announced on Sunday that Washington had offered Syria a proposal to end the US sanctions. The Foreign and Expatriates Ministry in Damascus said that the statements by James Jeffrey constitute a clear admission by the Trump administration of it being directly responsible for the suffering of Syrians. The Syrians see the increasing sanctions as economic-warfare after the US failure to bring about ‘regime change’, by using terrorists supported by the CIA. Damascus declares the sanctions violate human rights and international law as they affect the Syrian population.

President Trump inherited the Syrian war from its creator, former President Obama. In 2016, Trump campaigned with a promise to stop US support of the war in Syria; however, he has since invaded and occupied several areas in Syria and has declared he is there to keep the oil from being used by Syria. Russia entered Syria in 2015 at the request of Damascus to assist in the fight against Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists.

The newest sanctions have a 5-year life-span, and can be dismissed if seven criteria are met; however, the first two points are designed specifically to prevent fighting the Al Qaeda terrorists who control Idlib and are holding about 3 million persons as human shields. Both Syria and Russia, its ally in Syria, have said defeating terrorism are strategic goals."

War crimes abroad.... domestic violence directed against citizens at home; but hell, it's... the Good old USA, right?!? The Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika, right?!?!?

It sure looks like Trump and Adelson have cut a deal on annexation

So far, the Adelsons have gotten everything they’ve wanted from our transactional president: tearing up the Iran deal, moving the embassy to Jerusalem, defunding Palestinians, recognizing the Golan annexation, treating settlement expansion as legitimate, etc. Right up to yesterday — a Trump attack on the ICC in the name of Israel. As Trump once said when a Republican rival was getting Adelson’s money, Adelson wanted a “perfect little puppet.”

Most important, the Adelsons got the Trump “peace plan,” which paves the way for annexation of the West Bank. When Trump announced his “vision,” there they were in the front row.

Look at it from Trump’s point of view. He doesn’t care about peace in the Middle East or Palestinian human rights. He wants one thing, to win in November, and he needs money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So that is why this annexation is being rushed to 1 July, and with potentially deadly consequences for Palestinians.

Israel and the US Step Up Efforts To Intimidate the Hague War Crimes Court

Now, the ICC’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, looks poised finally to give the court some teeth. She is threatening to investigate two states – the US and Israel – whose actions have been particularly damaging to international law in the modern era.

The court is considering examining widespread human rights abuses perpetrated by US soldiers in Afghanistan, and crimes committed by Israeli soldiers in the occupied Palestinian territories, especially Gaza, as well as the officials responsible for Israel’s illegal settlement program.

An investigation of both is critically important: the US has crafted for itself a role as global policeman, while Israel’s flagrant violations of international law have been ongoing for more than half a century.

The US is the most powerful offender, and Israel the most persistent.

Both states have long dreaded this moment – the reason they refused to ratify the Rome Statute that established the ICC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter the findings, neither Israel or the US will take any responsibility for the evils they have perpetrated; both nations believe that they are above any international law.

US Sends F-35s to Middle East, Likely Targeting Iran

The US is sending a new group of F-35s to the Middle East, though exactly why is subject to speculation, as Centcom’s report was just a list of things the costly plane could conceivably do.

Things like close air support are capabilities, but not strengths, and the US has other planes better suited to that role. This is fueling speculation that the move is aimed at Iran.

There seems no particular reason to be after Iran just now, but US hostility toward Iran comes and goes like the seasons, so it is as good an explanation as any.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that the US military is sending these fighter jets around, so that they can appear as though they are actually "doing something", when in reality, many of the critical infrastructure problems have never gotten fixed.

Five F-35 issues have been downgraded, but they remain unsolved

The article goes on to state: "The F-35 Joint Program Office has put in place stopgap fixes for five key technical flaws plaguing America’s top-end fighter jet, but the problems have not been completely eliminated.

Last June, Defense News reported exclusive details about 13 major technical issues, known as category 1 deficiencies, impacting the F-35. The JPO has since quietly downgraded five of those issues to the lesser category 2."

Colorado Bill Requires "Re-Education" For Parents Who Refuse The COVID-19 Vaccine

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Are you ready for re-education camps in the United States? Colorado has introduced a bill that would “re-educate” parents who refuse to vaccinate their child with the coronavirus vaccine.

The bill forces all doctors and medical staff to give vaccinations with no exemptions, even if they are in a situation where they believe it would not be in that child’s best interest. The bill’s current version, however, does not list any sanctions or punishments for medical staff that refuse, according to Life News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what very powerful members of the Colorado legislature, have a lot of money invested in pharmaceutical stocks, for such a draconian bill to even get considered.

US WILL SEND UKRAINE ANOTHER $250M IN WEAPONS, GEAR AND OTHER AID

SOURCE: DEFENSE ONE
The Pentagon will send weapons and other military aid worth $250 million to Ukraine as part of the four-year-old Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, or USAI, defense officials announced Thursday.

The aid includes counter-artillery radars, air surveillance systems, other tactical equipment, military medical treatment, cyber defenses, “strategic communications,” according to a Thursday release by the Pentagon. Intended to help Ukraine fight the Russia-backed forces that have occupied part of the country’s eastern region since 2014, the aid aims to “enhance Ukraine’s defensive lethal capabilities and situational awareness in the maritime domain” and “counter Russian cyber offensive operations and misinformation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

The government is spending $1.5 BILLION on arms to Ukraine, when the level of corruption in that country's government is utterly laughable, and we have Americans homeless and hungry, sleeping in our streets?!?

This, folks, is insanity, writ large in national foreign policy.

VIDEO: 9/11 DOCUMENTARY ON WTC BUILDINGS: SPOTLIGHT ON: SEVEN

SOURCE: AE911TRUTH.ORG

PBS affiliates across the country today will begin airing a five-minute version of the new documentary SEVEN directed by Loose Change creator Dylan Avery about the explosive findings of the recently completed University of Alaska Fairbanks study on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7.

The short film, titled Spotlight On: SEVEN, will run for a minimum of three months on up to 200 local PBS stations, reaching at least three million viewers.

For those wanting to watch the short film on television, “Spotlight On” programs do not air at scheduled times because they run as needed in between longer shows. To have a good chance of catching it, you’ll need to be tuned in to PBS often. But rest assured that Spotlight On: SEVEN will be seen by at least three million people, most of whom will never have heard of or seen the collapse of Building 7.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The monsters who created this debacle should be tried and convicted for these heinous crimes, but never will be.

NEW EVIDENCE SUGGESTS TURKEY PREPARING FOR LIBYA-STYLE MILITARY INTERVENTION IN YEMEN

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
ADEN, YEMEN — As focus begins to turn to developments in Libya and the foreign interference that plagues the Arab country, it seems that Turkey already has its eye elsewhere, preparing for military involvement in Yemen in a move that has sparked concern among Yemenis already struggling against an intervention led by Saudi Arabia, famine and most recently, COVID-19.

Informed sources in Aden and Taiz revealed to MintPress that a militia belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated El-Eslah Party, the ideological and political ally of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, is already engaged in the latest round of fighting in Yemen’s southern provinces, particularly in Abyan and Shabwa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama originally sent "advisors" to Yemen, to placate the Saudi government; President Trump has "doubled down" on this approach, and put the US into the position of enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

One has to wonder what Erdogan's "end game" against Saudi Arabia might well be here; Turkish control of Marib, perchance?!?

AMERICA CONVULSES IN PAIN, FED BAILS OUT THE WEALTHY

SOURCE: WOLF STREET

n a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll out today, 80% of the respondents said they feel that the country is spiraling out of control.

So there are some huge multi-faceted problems that need to be grappled with, and that need to be resolved, and people are hurting, and they’re frustrated, and they’re angry, and many are unemployed, and others have jobs that don’t pay enough to meet the rising living expenses, and small businesses are on the ropes, and there’s going to be a lot of pain.

And what does the Federal Reserve do?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I tend to be the Pollyanna in this little home of two.

But at 71, seeing the level of deliberate destruction being done at all levels to so many people, you will forgive me, at this point, for having a completely jaundiced eye toward the political process in this country, at every possible level.

The monied will take care of their own, and the rest of us can rot, thank you very much; that has been the most befitting description of the degradation of the American political process.

I see utterly no hope for this country, and have to wonder just how long things can hold together, before we see a complete balkanization of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika, with the present, or future regime, will be powerless to prevent, because there is zero trust in the veracity of the political class.

Strait Tensions Soar: Taiwan Test Fires Missiles, Beijing Sends Warplane

Eight months after we penned a piece titled "Taiwan Warns Of Possible Invasion If China's Economy Continues To Deteriorate" -- a virus pandemic has crippled the global economy and Taiwan on Thursday (June 11) conducted missile tests off several of its coasts as tensions between China and the US are rising in the Taiwan Strait.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) is reporting that Taiwan has test-fired missiles off its eastern and southern coasts as the self-ruled island increases its defense capabilities against mainland China.

The tests were held near Taiwan's eastern county of Taitung and the Jiupeng military base in the southern part of the island on Thursday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is is in no real position to assist Taiwan, rather than with already-concluded missile sales, which appears to be President Trump's only way of dealing with adversaries at this point in his presidency, other than sanctions.

"Never Again": Frustrated North Korea Says Trump-Kim Bromance Is Over

The Trump-Kim bromance which held the potential for a historic breakthrough toward lasting peace and denuclearization on the Korean peninsula may have run its course. A top Pyongyang official now says there's "little reason" to maintain ties.

"North Korea sees little use maintaining a personal relationship between leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump if Washington sticks to hostile policies, state media reported on Friday - the two-year anniversary of the leaders’ first summit," Reuters reports of the surprisingly frank remarks.

Foreign Minister Ri Son Gwon said in statements reported by state news agency KCNA that Pyongyang is growing tired of what it sees as mere political point scoring from the US administration, with nothing actually changing for North Korea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another historical opportunity..... bungled by President Trump.

‘Fawlty Towers’ Episode to Be Reinstated After John Cleese Attacks its Removal

An episode of sitcom “Fawlty Towers” removed from a streaming site for containing “racial slurs” is to be reinstated. John Cleese had attacked the decision to remove the episode as “stupid,” as well as taking a swipe at those who take a revisionist view of history in the context of the Black Lives Matter debate.

Early on Friday, BBC-owned TV network UKTV announced on Twitter that it had temporarily removed the episode titled “The Germans” from its Gold download service as it contained “racial slurs.” The service said it wished to “review” the episode, and “consider our options.” It said some shows “carry warnings and others are edited.”

It is believed the “racial slurs” are contained in a scene in which the character known as the Major uses the N-word when referring to Caribbean sportsmen.

Later on Friday, UKTV said the episode would be reinstated “in the coming days” with the addition of “extra guidance.”

Orange County CA Rescinds Mandatory Facemask Order

NoMask.info - Orange County California, home of the beautiful beaches between Los Angeles and San Diego counties, has rescinded it's mandatory face mask order. Effective 6/12/20 at midnight, they changed the wording from "shall wear" a mask to now "strong recommendations" of should wear" a mask. Oddly, Orange County, which in years past had a reputation of being comprised of wealthy conservative Republicans and freedom-minded libertarians, took a month longer than neighboring San Bernardino and Riverside counties, which both rescinded their facemask orders in May.

In coastal Ventura County North of Los Angeles, county health officer Dr. Robert Levin refused to ever issue a facemask order and he actually backed-up his decision with scientific evidence and a plethora of medical studies, along with links and a video presentation by him. This hasn't gotten near enough attention and Dr. Levin should be highly commended for this very rare action

NZ Teaching Council considers complaints after teacher wears 'Make America Great Again' hat to protest

The Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand has received complaints over the primary school teacher who wore a "Make America Great Again" cap to a Black Lives Matter protest.

The Manukau Christian School sparked widespread anger for wearing the pro-Trump hat to Monday's peaceful protest, organised in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in police custody.

His decision to wear the MAGA cap led to angry condemnation among the protesters, who accused the teacher of being a "racist" and of antagonising the crowd.

*See, we have just as many stupid people here as anywhere else & our media lies just the same as the US media. The irony is that people were saying the hat represented hate & then the teacher was then subjected to hateful messages & threats of violence...Go figure.*

NZ Lockdown police powers - legal groups joins judicial review

A judicial review that will consider the legality of the level 3 and 4 lockdowns has been given significant legal grunt.

The New Zealand Law Society, the Criminal Bar Association and the Auckland District Law Council are joining forces with Wellington lawyer Andrew Borrowdale, who is mounting the case.

Questions have been raised as to whether director-general of health Ashley Bloomfield had the legal authority under the Public Health Act to effectively shut the country down and to order people to stay at home unless they had good reason for being out.

Crown Law advice - leaked during the lockdown to Newstalk ZB - suggested Bloomfield did not have the required authority, which would throw into question all the arrests made during it.

The left’s coming war on cops

Newly painted in huge yellow letters on 16th Street, just north of the White House, is the slogan: “Defund the Police.”

That new message sits beside the “Black Lives Matter” slogan, also in huge letters, painted there at the direction of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

She renamed that section of 16th Street “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”

Still, the messages are less ominous than the chants of protesters in New York after the takedown that resulted in the death of Eric Garner.

Protesters then chanted of the NYPD: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!”

Agenda 21 requires martial law

Richie from Boston has taken to boldly stating the obvious. In order to force people to accept Agenda 21 and not fight back, military presence is mandatory. The United States government is wholly pushing the agenda forward for the elitists and we just keep falling for it and hate those who are trying to warn us.

The governments of the world are already busy crafting the next crisis. Once the rioting and looting dies down, another manufactured disaster will strike. It’ll be one thing after another until “Plandemic 2” hits in the fall. Heck, maybe something even bigger will surface before then even and they won’t need “a second wave.” Ritchie from Boston touches some nerves in one of his most recent videos. His goal isn’t to appease those who listen, it’s to wake them up.

WHO on the "social and psychological acceptance" of Face Masks

Despite admitting today that "the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence,"
The WHO declares "The likely advantages of the use of masks by healthy people in the general public include: "reduced potential stigmatization of individuals wearing
masks to prevent infecting others; making people feel they can play a role in contributing to stopping spread of the virus; & encouraging public
acceptance of protection measures in general. Consider the social and psychological acceptance (of both wearing and not wearing different types of masks in different contexts."

The corporate media is reporting that the World Health Organization finally joined the CDC in recommending masks for everyone, but if you read the WHO's actual report dated today June 8, 2020, what it actually says is "Many countries have recommended the use of fabric masks/face coverings for the general public. At the present time, the widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or
direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider (see below)...the use of a mask alone is insufficient to provide an
adequate level of protection"

Eyewitness: Caretaker shouted 'he's disabled' before soldier shot autistic Palestinian

The testimony matches that of Eyad Hallaq's caregiver. Meanwhile, the version of events recounted by two officers involved in the incident is inconsistent.

New eyewitness testimony in the shooting and killing of Eyad Hallaq, a 32-year-old autistic Palestinian man, in Jerusalem's Old City last Saturday, strengthens the suspicion that police shot him while he was lying on the ground, and after his counselor yelled that he was disabled.

The witness, A.R., a laborer, was in the garbage-bin space where Hallaq fled to get away from the police. According to his testimony, which was taken by B'Tselem investigator Amer Aruri on the day Hallaq was shot, A.R. was sitting in the garbage room ? a small, roofless structure used by sanitation workers on Sha'ar Ha'arayot Street.

Netanyahu vows all settlements will be annexed July 1, but other lands may wait

Meeting with West Bank mayors who have refrained from trashing Trump plan, PM also quoted saying that the territory conditionally offered to Palestinians doesn’t constitute a state.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told settler leaders on Sunday that he still intends to annex all West Bank settlements on the July 1 date that is the earliest allowed by his coalition deals, but he acknowledged that annexing other lands allocated to Israel under the Trump peace plan will likely take more time, several participants in the meeting told The Times of Israel.

The remarks reaffirmed Netanyahu’s self-declared July 1 target date for extending Israeli sovereignty to all West Bank settlements but also appeared to mark the first time he has admitted to long-reported delays by the joint US-Israeli team tasked with mapping out the further territories to be annexed, mainly in the Jordan Valley.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have warned what passes for Palestinian leadership for years that if they didn't take a more decisive, but peaceful, stand for a Palestinian state, it wouldn't even be the size of Lichtenstein; I hate having been right on this.

With all other legal actions being barred to them, the Palestinians need to advocate, peacefully, for Israeli citizenship in the newly annexed areas; this appears to be their only possible representational salvation left.

America’s Forever Wars Have Come Home

Here’s a little portrait of the United States in June 2020, a passage from a New York Times report on the National Guard’s treatment of a recent protest march of people chanting "We can’t breathe!" in Washington, D.C.:

"A Black Hawk helicopter, followed by a smaller medical evacuation helicopter, dropped to rooftop level with its searchlights aimed at the crowd. Tree limbs snapped, nearly hitting several people. Signs were torn from the sides of buildings. Some protesters looked up, while others ran into doorways. The downward force of air from the rotors was deafening. The helicopters were performing a ‘show of force’ – a standard tactic used by military aircraft in combat zones to scatter insurgents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As someone who, many, many years ago, graduated from a "rainbow college", featuring any and every ethnicity one could imagine, and understanding how people could work together for the common good, because everyone there got along brilliantly, all intent on getting that diploma, what continues to keep happening in this country, in terms of violence in our inner cities, just breaks my heart.

And the practice of "kettling" by our police departments, has to stop, please, and right now.

White House Tries to Link US Protests to Venezuelan Government: Allegations appear to hinge on Max Blumenthal's t-shirt

The best part of a major, nationwide protest movement is having someone to blame. This weekend, the new narrative embraced by the White House would pin large US protests against police brutality on Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

The Trump Administration has had a problem with Maduro for a long time, and in just the past few months had also accused him of being involved in the drug trade, justifying a bounty on his head that culminated in a failed invasion by a private US company.

The White House is refusing to offer any proof on this, saying it was “non-open source.” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) cited certain news reports from Latin America. The whole thing, incredibly, all falls back on Max Blumenthal’s T-shirt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, WHO in the White House is off their meds, in order to come up with such an unhinged linkage?!?

Apparently in the operative collective-think of the White House, reasonable people living in our inner cities, who are consistently exposed to a steady diet of police violence, have absolutely no reason to be upset when that violence resulted in the death of an unarmed man.

Was Floyd an angel?!? The short answer is, absolutely not; but in light of the fact that he was already subdued and in custody, why did this cop believe he had the right to asphyxiate him with the hold he used?!?

I cannot believe for one second that he didn't know what he was doing, and what the ultimate outcome would have been.

There is a great deal we urgently need to fix in our own back yard as Americans, before we lecture other countries about their perceived "wrong-doings."

White House, Pentagon tensions near breaking point

Friction in this relationship, historically, is not unusual. But in recent days, and for the second time in Trump’s term, it has raised a prospect of high-level resignations and the risk of lasting damage to the military’s reputation.

Calm may return, both in the crisis over Floyd’s death and in Pentagon leaders’ angst over Trump’s threats to use federal troops to put down protesters. But it could leave a residue of resentment and unease about this president’s approach to the military, whose leaders welcome his push for bigger budgets but chafe at being seen as political tools.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is an horrific irony here, and I say this with the greatest respect for our country's military; geopolitically, the military, particularly in the 20th and 21st century, have been the tools of destabilization and regime change across the globe, from Iraq, to Afghanistan, Somalia, and Syria.

The pattern is obvious, for anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together; destabilise, regime change, and insure that the only monetary unit in which that country's resources are sold, are in US dollars.

It is NOT the military's fault that this keeps happening; it is the entire fault of the US civilian government, ordering them to continue to behave in this manner, which is the problem, to fatten the coffers of the already well-monied.

In this country, we have the illusion of change, every 4 years, rather than any substantive real change in domestic or foreign policy; because no matter who, and which party wins, the "War Party" in this country has full bi-partisan support.

This... is the grim reality I see this election year, and every election year.

The late George Carlin was an incredible comedian, but more than that, in his own way a prophet. George Carlin on War:
how bombing brown people became a growth industry

The article went on to state:"“In a sane and just society, the architects of the nearly 17-year-old war in Iraq, which is still ongoing and has left an estimated half-million people dead, would face war crimes charges and those who cheered them on would be thoroughly discredited.”
— Jessica Schulberg, HuffPost

Amid swirling tensions between President Donald Trump, Iran, and the potential for a new war in the Middle East, a historic clip resurfaced on social media of comedian George Carlin, bemoaning the pattern of American militarism in which the United States, often with the help of a conspiring media and a lazy public, jump into a major war just about every twenty years.

Carlin recorded the routine entitled “Rockets and Penises in the Persian Gulf” as part of an HBO special in 1992, on the heels of the first Gulf War launched by President George H.W. Bush. The clip was shared on Twitter, as a War Powers Resolution to block Trump from additional attacks on Iran was debated on Capitol Hill. The message of Carlin’s routine was proven once again relevant."

With civil unrest erupting across the U.S., protesters vocalizing their support for the black community are being threatened with military force. America’s streets and skies are being flooded with officers from multiple federal agencies - the Army, FBI, ICE, CBP and DEA to name a few - called in to assist in Trump’s “domination” of dissenting voices.

They come armed with next-generation surveillance technologies, many of them spying from the skies above, hooked up to inconspicuous drones that can autonomously track people. These devices have cost the U.S. government tens of millions of dollars in the last year alone, according to a Forbes review of contract records.

SADISTIC RIOT COPS SHOOT INNOCENT WHEELCHAIR-BOUND HOMELESS MAN IN THE HEAD

SOURCE: MATT AGORIST
(Support Free Thought) -

It is important to point out that many of the arrests we are seeing involve violations of unconstitutional curfews which have been enforced across the nation — not actual crimes. When citizens refuse to be silenced and do not go home when told they have to, police begin a process known as kettling which provokes violence by trapping protesters in a fight or flight type situation.

Essentially, people who stay out past the curfew are being kettled by cops who do not allow them to leave and then are tear gassed, pepper sprayed, beaten with batons, and then arrested.

This tactic is highly controversial because multiple instances have captured cops abusing people who are innocent, including the press, and bystanders who are not even participating in the protests — like innocent homeless people in wheelchairs.

POLICE CHIEF FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER SUPPORTING CITIZENS WHO ARMED UP AMID RIOTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Lowell, Michigan Police Chief Steven Bukala was forced to resign on Thursday after 25 years with the force, after writing on Facebook in support of four young men who armed themselves against potential violent protesters.

Responding to phone calls that 2nd Amendment demonstrators were open carrying down Main Street, Bukala wrote on the Lowell Police Deparment’s Facebook page on Tuesday: "We are aware and no need to call us," adding "We at the Lowell Police Department support the legally armed citizen and the Second Amendment," according to WZZM13.

After a flood of complaints as part of what WZZM says was a "pattern of inappropriate behavior," the city manager told Bukala to resign by 5 p.m. on Friday or be fired at 5:01 p.m.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The framers of the Constitution and Bill of Rights were very aware of the ability of governments to mow down various segments of the population who were powerless to rise against it, because they were unarmed.

Legal gun ownership, coupled with responsible people who would not do any harm with a weapon except to defend those they cared about, is something this country cannot afford to lose, and particularly not right now.

PENTAGON WAR GAME INCLUDES SCENARIO FOR MILITARY RESPONSE TO DOMESTIC GEN Z REBELLION

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
In the face of protests composed largely of young people, the presence of America’s military on the streets of major cities has been a controversial development. But this isn’t the first time that Generation Z — those born after 1996 — has popped up on the Pentagon’s radar.

Documents obtained by The Intercept via the Freedom of Information Act reveal that a Pentagon war game, called the 2018 Joint Land, Air and Sea Strategic Special Program, or JLASS, offered a scenario in which members of Generation Z, driven by malaise and discontent, launch a “Zbellion” in America in the mid-2020s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is always comforting to understand the degree to which the US military "has the backs": of the already monied, and are more than ready to collectively "relieve themselves" on those whose futures have been already been squandered for the rest of us.

Corporate media: proven liars complicit to kill millions, harm billions, loot trillions EVERY YEAR. Demanding .01% arrests yet, or prefer ‘coverage’ by lying sacks of spin?

As a professional historian, my published research is among hundreds documenting corporate media lies to treasonously war-murder human beings in ongoing Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression. These wars are started with lies; not “mistaken intelligence”: propaganda known to be false as they are told. Therefore, and the point of this article: nobody should believe anything corporate media says about anything.

Obviously, the proper citizen response to .01% liars responsible for war-murdering millions, including the direct and treasonous attack on US military to lie them into invading foreign lands to be rightfully attacked by the invaded, is to demand arrests of corporate media “leaders.” This includes those responsible for putting those lies into our “history” textbooks to propagandize our children. The purpose of those lies is perpetual and rapacious US rogue state empire; lying and looting to control natural and human resources for generations.

Sen. Rand Paul: Slapping Someone Could Get You 10 Years In Prison Under Federal 'Anti-Lynching' Bill

Democratic Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker's Orwellian "anti-lynching bill" will allow the feds to throw Americans in prison for 10 years for slapping someone and uttering a racial slur, Senator Rand Paul revealed Thursday.

The bill, which Cory Booker said last year was inspired by Jussie Smollett's supposed "lynching," does not make lynching illegal as it's already illegal but instead creates a new crime called "conspiracy to lynch" that will allow the feds to ramp up mass incarceration for thought crimes.

UK vaccine summit calls for freely available virus vaccine

A vaccine summit hosted by Britain yesterday raised billions of dollars to immunise children in developing countries as experts wrestled with the difficult question of how any potential vaccine against the new coronavirus might be distributed globally — and fairly.

The United Nations and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement have urged that "a people's vaccine" be developed for Covid-19 that would be freely available to everyone, calling it a "moral imperative".

Thursday's event raised $8.8 billion, exceeding its target, for the vaccines alliance GAVI, which says the funds will be used to vaccinate about 300 million children in dozens of countries against diseases like malaria, pneumonia and HPV.

For years, there has been a growing concern that Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube which it owns, are not acting like neutral forums where users freely express their opinions. It is now time to say clearly and unequivocally that these are no longer allegations - they are observable facts.

A case in point being a recent discussion with Peter Hitchens on my YouTube show, TRIGGERnometry, in which he criticised the lockdown. Unlike a recent interview with Professor Karol Sikora on the website UnHerd, which was simply deleted by YouTube before being reinstated amid public outcry, the tech giant’s response to our video was far more insidious.

Instead of deleting it and allowing us the right of appeal, they simply “hid” the interview from searches on YouTube and Google.

Auckland George Floyd protest: Police didn't want to create 'tension' at peaceful protest

Police didn't intervene in the Auckland Black Lives Matter protest despite it breaking alert level 2 regulations to avoid creating "tension", it has been revealed.

On Monday, several thousand people attended the rally, sparked by the death of African-American George Floyd in the United States but also racist policing in New Zealand and trials to routinely arm officers.

Under Covid-19 alert level 2 regulations, gatherings of more than 100 people are not permitted, and while organisers before and during the rally urged attendees to keep to two-metre social distancing, the sheer numbers involved made this near impossible.

As images emerged of vocal protesters packed into Aotea Square and later marching down Queen St towards the United States Consulate, opposition politicians said it was an "insult" to New Zealanders who had been following restrictions.

*Funny how we are now going to 'level 1' after this. Ironically, Maori portionantely kill more Maori than anyone.*

PM Ardern and Bloomfield speak on photographs showing breach of social distancing rules

The Prime Minister and director general of health have spoken out on accusations of hypocrisy over social distancing even as police refuse to say whether the pair will be warned over breaching level 2 rules.

It follows the publication by the Herald of photographs showing Ardern posing with well-wishers in Hawke's Bay, and Bloomfield with restaurant staff after a meal.

Northland MP Matt King faced criticism after a similar photograph emerged of him with restaurant staff after a meal out when the country shifted to level 2.

At the time, the Ministry of Health put out a statement telling people to "maintain a 1-metre distance from people they don't know or wouldn't normally come into close contact with, where contact tracing is available".

*Do as we say slaves, not as we do*

Test and trace system data to be kept by government for 20 years

The disclosure – coming after ministers rejected a plea from MPs and peers to pass an emergency law to set out clear rules – will heighten privacy fears, on the day the scheme finally got underway.

Information including name, address, date of birth, phone numbers and email addresses, will be collected and stored by the NHS for people with Covid-19, or with symptoms.

Individuals will be able to “ask” for their information to be deleted, but Public Health England has warned “this is not an absolute right” and that it might “need to continue to use your information”.

A new privacy notice states that a private firm, Amazon Web Services, “is providing the secure storage location for the information collected by NHS test-and-trace”.

‘Let’s not excuse violence’: Barack Obama forgets his ENTIRE presidency and argues riots should lead to voting Democrat

As rioters set fire to cities across the US, the country’s first African-American president pretends he hadn’t been in office for eight years to do anything about race relations, and says electing more Democrats is the solution.

The problem with Obama’s message isn’t that it’s partisan, but that it brazenly ignores reality – such as the fact that he was the president for eight years, with full control of those levers of power. Yet somehow the greatest achievements of the Obama Era – Obamacare, Obergefell, DACA, or pushes for transgender rights and Title IX “campus rape culture” rules, to name a few – ended up having nothing to do with racial justice.

Surely it was the Obama administration that passed the First Step Act to give relief to federal inmates, the majority of whom were African-American, from harsh mandatory sentences imposed during the Clinton era? Oh, wait, no, it was the “racist” Donald Trump.

Disney World enlists ‘Star Wars’ Stormtroopers to enforce social distancing

o help enforce social distancing restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, Walt Disney World has enlisted Stormtroopers from “Star Wars.”

On May 20, parts of its Disney World reopened, including outdoor restaurants, entertainment venues and its shopping district, Disney Springs. Visitors must now follow rules that require all guests to wear face coverings, pass fever tests and maintain a distance of 6 feet from other guests whenever possible.

Attractions Magazine shared a video last week of two Imperial soldiers encouraging visitors to “move along” and “stay in your sector” as they patrol from a balcony above a shopping plaza. Pre-recorded banter between the two troopers can be heard over a loudspeaker.

“Hey, you! With the face covering!” yells one Stormtrooper in the video.

“They all have face coverings,” the other mocks.

“Well, we made them all look,” the first trooper responds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the "D" in Disney, now stands for Dystopian!!!!!

And to the chief architects of this "program", I would very much like to politely remind you, that George Orwell's classic, "1984", was a cautionary tale; not a how-to manual!!!

Israel’s Netanyahu Says the Quiet Part Out Loud: Palestinians to be “Subjects,” Not Citizens in Apartheid Annexation

In an interview with corrupt casino mogul Sheldon Adelson’s free newspaper, Israel ha-Yom, Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu said the quiet parts out loud.

Although he did not use the word, he described an Apartheid regime in the Israeli-controlled Palestinian West Bank.

He openly referred to the stateless Palestinians as “subjects.”

Netanyahu will annex the Jordan Valley formally to Israel, where 60,000 Palestinians live and which is one of the areas Israel had pledged to relinquish to the Palestine Authority in the 1993 Oslo Accords. He will also annex the land on which Israeli squatters established settlements in Palestinian territory.

Israel ha-Yom asked, “Q: Nevertheless, several thousand Palestinians live in the Jordan Valley. Does that mean they will receive Israeli citizenship?”

Netanyahu replied:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless, and until, Palestinians become actual citizens of the territory Israel is about to annex in less than one month, they will have zero rights whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

I would like to hope that Palestinian "leadership" (or what passes for it these days), is considering how to accomplish this, peacefully, and soon.

Palestine: Even During a Pandemic, Israeli Soldiers Shoot Holes in Water Tanks at Kafr Qadum

As a result of Israel’s policy, Palestinians in the West Bank suffer severe water shortages and an irregular supply. To alleviate the hardship, residents place water tanks with volumes of 500 or 1,000 liters on their roofs to stock water during supply hours, for use during the many hours when there is no running water.

B’Tselem’s investigation indicates that the shooting is deliberate and has resulted in residents losing hundreds of liters of water. They will now have to purchase expensive new tanks at about 500 NIS (~125 USD) per unit. Since the beginning of April, soldiers have damaged 24 water tanks on rooftops of homes in the village, some more than once. In some homes, water tanks were damaged three or four times over a month and a half.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

B’Tselem is an Israeli peace organisation for which I have the utmost respect.

They will expose the IDF's "dirty tricks" against the Palestinians with absolute, and complete, peaceful courage in these actions, understanding that they, too, may well be putting their lives, and the lives of their families, at risk, because of what they do.

Coronavirus Propaganda Mimics War Propaganda

In the period leading up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, the Bush administration and its media accomplices waged a relentless propaganda campaign to win political support for what turned out to be one of the most disastrous foreign policy mistakes in American history.

So they created a narrative using a mélange of half-truths, faintly plausible fabrications, and outright lies.

Tragically, the American people never placed the burden of proof squarely with the war cheerleaders to justify their absolutely crazed effort to remake the Middle East. In hindsight, this is obvious, but at the time propaganda did its job. Disinformation is part and parcel of the fog of war.

What will hindsight make clear about our reaction to COVID-19 propaganda? Will we regret shutting down the economy as much as we ought to regret invading Iraq?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, I would never want to be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; that being said, I want to, and will, as long as humanly possible, wait until the "Covid-19 Jab" has been around for a while, and is not killing, or destroying, people's immune systems.

GEORGE FLOYD DEATH : Minneapolis police rendered 44 people unconscious with neck restraints in five yearsSeveral police experts said that number appears to be unusually high. "By using this tactic, it's a self-fulfilling tragedy," said one.

Since the beginning of 2015, officers from the Minneapolis Police Department have rendered people unconscious with neck restraints 44 times, according to an NBC News analysis of police records. Several police experts said that number appears to be unusually high.

Minneapolis police used neck restraints at least 237 times during that span, and in 16 percent of the incidents the suspects and other individuals lost consciousness, the department's use-of-force records show. A lack of publicly available use-of-force data from other departments makes it difficult to compare Minneapolis to other cities of the same or any size.

Police define neck restraints as when an officer uses an arm or leg to compress someone's neck without directly pressuring the airway. On May 25, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was captured on video kneeling on the neck of a prone and handcuffed George Floyd for eight minutes — including nearly three minutes after he had stopped breathing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

HOLY CRUD, and this was perfectly legal for these officers to do in this state?!?

US gov puts $5 million bounty on Venezuela’s head of crypto

The man responsible for the administration of the petro crypto, Joselit Ramírez, is wanted by the US government over allegations of money laundering and other crimes.

In brief
ICE and US Homeland Security have added Venezuela's crypto chief to its list of most wanted fugitives.
The US government is offering a $5 million reward for information leading to the capture of Joselit Ramírez.
ICE alleges Ramírez has violated money laundering laws and US sanctions.
The head of Venezuela’s cryptocurrency agency is now a wanted man.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, put out a bulletin today adding Joselit Ramírez, chief of the National Superintendency of Cryptoassets (Sunacrip), to its list of most wanted fugitives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW, if the US government is paying that much of a bounty for info on Ramirez, this guy must really be doing a great job for the Venezuelan government!!!

Israeli Defense Minister Preparing for Annexation of West Bank

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Monday that he ordered the military to start preparing for the coming annexation of parts of the West Bank. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans on annexing Israeli settlements in the West Bank, and parts of the Jordan Valley, a plan bound to face backlash from Palestinians. Netanyahu promised to start cabinet talks on annexation on July 1st.

The areas Israel plans to annex reflects the blueprint of President Trump’s “peace plan” that was released in January. The plan was immediately rejected by Palestinians since it includes the annexation of the Jordan Valley and illegal settlements. The plan also includes Israeli-only access roads in the West Bank, and would essentially legitimize apartheid rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Years ago, in various posts on this site, I warned Hamas and Fatah that if all they could accomplish was arguing among themselves, the hunk of land that they would get, to be able to establish a functional Palestine, would be smaller than Lichtenstein; now, because of the way the settlements have been engineered, coupled with this annexation, the Palestinians won't even have that, because there are no more contiguous borders for Palestine.

Folks, this "timetable" for annexation is less than one month away; this is most probably going to get ugly before it's a fait accompli.

GEORGE FLOYD ENDGAME: MARTIAL LAW AND A POLICE STATE

SOURCE: KURT NIMMO

It is disturbing to hear people who should know better describe the George Floyd riots as anarchism. The riots are not anarchistic, they are nihilistic. The people engaged in looting, arson, and widespread assault have zero comprehension of political philosophy.

There are, of course, a whole lot of people demonstrating who are not involved in crime and violence. However, these are the dupes, the idealists routinely exploited by the state and its propaganda media.

Rampaging “anarchists”—many undoubtedly agent provocateurs—are not interested in justice, fairness, nonviolence, and peaceful dialogue. They are providing a pretext to usher in a fascist police state.

The George Floyd riots are problem-reaction-solution exemplified. After Ronald Reagan initiated his “zero tolerance” drug war, the Pentagon began the process of converting local police departments into “thin blue line” paramilitary gangs paid for by know-nothing taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Nimmo is rarely wrong in his predictions; I hope to heck he is on this one, but looking at the way in which the rioting and looting has been allowed to escalate by the Powers that Be, rather than them taking back the streets from the looters, to make them safe for everyone again, this appears to me a distinct possibility.

The next major American holiday falls on 4 July, Independence Day, which is a Saturday this year; please, to all of our readers and listeners, stay safe out there, and stay watchful, particularly if you live in a large, urban area.

THE GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS – 20 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

SOURCE: OFF-GUARDIAN
As the situation deteriorates all across the nation, we need to stop and ask how we got here.

Racial politics in America are a simmering pot waiting to boil over, they have been for decades. This is only exacerbated as the poverty created by the (totally unnecessary) lockdown starts to hit home.

As the weather gets hot, and jobs dry up and prices skyrocket and the small businesses close…people will get tense. They will get angry.

This is dry tinder which can burst into flames at any moment.

All it took was a spark.

Now the protesters swarm cities all across America, as windows are smashed, shops looted and public buildings set afire. Civilians are being maced and tasered and the rubber bullets are flying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have never, in my life, been more grateful for living in a small, rural part of the country than I am now, here in Indiana.

But my heart goes out for innocent people who are getting badly physically hurt out there, and businesses, built over decades by minority entrepreneurs, and others, going up in smoke right now.

Trump Administration Plans $500 Million Arms Sale to Saudi Arabia: Move would give Raytheon licenses to make bombs in Saudi Arabia

The Trump Administration has sent a notification to Congress confirming plans to sell $500 million in weapons to Saudi Arabia in an upcoming round of sales. The plan would include sales of Paveway bombs to the Saudis, and licenses to Raytheon to let them manufacture the bombs directly in Saudi Arabia.

These bombs are part of a 2019 deal in which the Saudis intend to buy 60,000 precision munitions. The deal has continued to face heavy resistance in Congress, in no small part because the Saudis have been committing war crimes with these US-made arms.

Concerns about US culpability in having provided these arms were compounded with the Saudi assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which fueled a substantial political backlash. So far, the Trump Administration has resisted letting Congress block any sales, but each announcement starts the battle anew.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the Saudi approach in Yemen is assassinating all native Yemenites, particularly women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, so they can own the country.

Mr. President, by signing off on this deal, you are telling the world that you proudly are signing off on Saudi war crimes, courtesy of US enabling; what the hell kind of message do you think this is sending to the world?!?

Are you so "sheltered" by your toadying advisors, that you don't know this is precisely what the Saudi military will do with these munitions?!?

Mr. President, you have both a world of hurt to try to help to heal, both societally and economically, to the country you alledge you actually govern; so can you please attempt to do some positive governing to resolve those issues, before you treat your weapons developers/massive contributors to yet another windfall in weapons profits?!?

Or do you really relish the title of"Merchant of Death in Chief"?!?

'PEOPLE ARE GOING TO GO HUNGRY': PANDEMIC EFFECTS COULD LEAVE 54M AMERICANS WITHOUT FOOD

SOURCE: THE GUARDIAN
A record number of Americans face hunger this year as the catastrophic economic fallout caused by the coronavirus pandemic looks set to leave tens of millions of people unable to buy enough food to feed their families.

Nationwide, the demand for aid at food banks and pantries has soared since the virus forced the economy to be shutdown, resulting in more than 40m new unemployment benefit claims, according to the latest figures.

As a result, an estimated one in four children, the equivalent of 18 million minors, could need food aid this year – a 63% increase compared to 2018.

Overall, about 54 million people across the US could go hungry without help from food banks, food stamps and other aid, according to an analysis by Feeding America, the national food bank network.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a country with enough wealth and power to make Midas blush, that this possibility even exists, is enough to get your blood boiling, if you care about people at all, which I do, and greatly.

Smith: Why The Public Should Rebel Against Forced Vaccinations

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

The debate over the morality and practicality of forced vaccinations has been raging for many years, long before the coronavirus ever hit the US population. With the advent of the pandemic the narrative has shifted to one of “necessity”. The media and the majority of governments around the world now act as if mass vaccinations are a given; the “debate is over”, as collectivists like to say when they are tired of having to deal with any logical or factual complaints.

The vaccine debate often revolves around the issue of safety. Is a particular inoculation safe or poisonous? Does it have long term effects that are dangerous? Does it harm children with highly sensitive and underdeveloped body systems? These are valid concerns, but ultimately the fight over vaccines has less to do with medical safety or effectiveness and more to do with individual rights vs government demands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I turned 71 this last birthday.

If the government mandates I take a Covid-19 vaccine jab, I will tell them, gently, and politely, thank you, no.

I will also gently remind these people, as Google tells us, "that to date, the US Vaccine Court, has paid off As of October 2019, $4.2 Billion in compensation (not including attorneys fees and costs) has been awarded. Filing a claim with the Court of Federal Claims requires a $250 filing fee, which can be waived for those unable to pay."

IF US vaccines are safe, why has this court had to pay out one dime, let alone 4 billion bucks, when the burden of proof is all on the plaintiffs?!?

The logical short answer has to be, that not all vaccines are as safe as the medical/industrial complex tells us they are; that is simply the reality.

When the Covid-19 jab has been around 10 or 20 years, with no proof of damage to healthy immune systems, I might consider it; but not until then.
