Teacher Unions Destroy School Accountability

Authored by Robert Fellner via The Mises Institute,

Just months after successfully threatening an illegal strike to obtain a modest salary raise, members of the Clark County, Nevada, teachers union, the Clark County Education Association (CCEA), are going to have to give a big chunk of that back, thanks to a pair of recent rate hikes that will cost the average teacher nearly $1,000 a year.

The union claims that higher taxes and increased spending are the only way to improve Nevada’s public schools but neglects to explain why the near tripling in spending that has already occurred since 1960 has failed to improve student performance.

Greece To Help Tripoli 'Block Turkish Ships' As Libyan War Spills Into Mediterranean

The years-long war for post-Gaddafi Libya now threatens to spill over into the Mediterranean as Turkey and Greece line up on either side of the conflict. Each side is now threatening the others' allied ships in southern waters after a controversial maritime deal expanded Turkish claims off Libya's coast.

On Thursday Benghazi-based General Kalifa Haftar declared his Libyan National Army has begun its "final decisive battle" to wrest control of the capital of Tripoli from the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA).

"Zero hour has come for the broad and total assault expected by every free and honest Libyan," Haftar said in a televised address, reports Al Jazeera. "Today, we announce the decisive battle and the advancement towards the heart of the capital to set it free... advance now our heroes." Beginning eight months ago Haftar launched a siege of Tripoli, which has been stalled in recent months.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could spin out of control horrifically rapidly; prayers for all the innocent Libyans impacted, or who will be impacted.

Glyphosate and Roundup Proven to Disrupt Gut Microbiome by Inhibiting Shikimate Pathway

Fatty liver disease and death of liver tissue were also confirmed in rats fed regulatory permitted and thus presumed safe doses of the weedkiller

The primary mechanism of how glyphosate herbicides kill plants is by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a biochemical pathway known as the shikimate pathway. The shikimate pathway is responsible for the synthesis of certain aromatic amino acids that are vital for the production of proteins, the building blocks of life. Thus when the synthesis of the aromatic amino acids is blocked by glyphosate inhibition of EPSPS, the plant dies.

Trump Wants Criticism of Israel Equated with Anti-Semitism

Trump wants anti-Semitism redefined. An executive order perhaps already signed is all about stifling legitimate criticism of Israel.

It’s about wanting the Jewish state absolved of occupation, colonialism, and apartheid crimes against humanity.

Trump wants anti-Semitism redefined. An executive order perhaps already signed is all about stifling legitimate criticism of Israel.

It’s about wanting the Jewish state absolved of occupation, colonialism, and apartheid crimes against humanity.

“Officials say the order will broaden the federal government’s definition of anti-Semitism and instruct it to be used in enforcing laws against discrimination on college campuses.”

Henceforth, will advocacy for Palestinian rights and wanting Israel held accountable for denying them be criminalized — and not just on college campuses.

According to the NYT, Trump’s order “will effectively interpret Judaism as a race or nationality, not just a religion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is engineered to have the most chilling effect possible on free speech, when it comes to criticizing Israel, and must be brought to the Supreme Court as case they will actually hear; additionally, it will cement home the fact to the Palestinian and Arab communities, that the US government cannot possibly be relied upon a an honest broker of peace treaties in the region.

Pentagon chiefs say US troops to stay in Syria for years

Barely two months after US President Donald Trump’s demagogic announcement that he was pulling US troops out of northeastern Syria to fulfill his campaign promise to bring a halt to Washington’s “endless wars,” the senior civilian and uniformed Pentagon chiefs told a House panel Wednesday that there is no foreseeable end to the American presence there.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley maintained in their testimony to the House Armed Services Committee that the US military was staying in Syria to assure the “enduring defeat” of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and that the fulfillment of that goal is likely years away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Defense Secretary Esper and Joint Chiefs Staff Milley: But has Russia's President Putin received the memo, that this is continued, endless occupation of Syria, is coming?!?

Just asking, gentlemen; just asking.

Pompeo warns Iran of 'decisive response' if harm in Iraq

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday warned Iran of a "decisive" response if US interests are harmed in Iraq, after a series of rocket attacks on bases.

"We must... use this opportunity to remind Iran's leaders that any attacks by them, or their proxies of any identity, that harm Americans, our allies or our interests will be answered with a decisive US response," Pompeo said in a statement.

"Iran must respect the sovereignty of its neighbors and immediately cease its provision of lethal aid and support to third parties in Iraq and throughout the region," he said.

The United States has expressed mounting concern about the flurry of attacks on Iraqi bases used by US troops, several of which it has blamed on Iranian-backed Shiite paramilitary groups.

Two rocket attacks this week targeted a compound near Baghdad International Airport, which houses US troops, with an incident Monday wounding Iraqi troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are so many possibilities for a false flag before the end of the year, that one hardly knows were to start; that being said, however, Iraq is certainly one of those places where a false flag against an American entity could be done, blamed on Iran, and off we would be going.

However, as someone who doesn't walk in the halls of power in DC, I must shudder at what appears a huge "gap of awareness" which makes itself known, when Secretary State Pompeo, hauls off with threats like these.

Has he not been made privy to the following article ( and the article was written in English; you didn't even have to read Russian to read i)t, and here is what it said:

Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks it. The statement was made by Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

And I am stunned here; if I know about it as just a plain-Jane citizen of this country, why do you, Secretary Pompeo, apparently not know that this was said publicly by a Russian official?!?

And sir, were I you, I would take Kabulov at his word; and at the moment he made this declaration he was channeling Putin.

It has been said, that some people this close to Putin don't even FART without asking his permission.

Mr. Secretary, I am imploring you as politely as I can, please do not go to war with Iran, because it will, most likely mean war with Russia.

Please do not "get drunk on the cork" of any "victory is ours" scenarios,
being "curated" for you by any of our governmental agencies at the moment; the track record of the US government's having signed off on these concepts,
for at least the past 20 years, stinks with the wretched, fetid odor of a badly conjured, dart-board foreign policy, where the people who created these scenarios were pathologically incapable of seeing them through to their logical conclusion.

Israel bars Gaza’s Christians from visiting Bethlehem, Jerusalem at Christmas

Christians in the Gaza Strip will not be allowed to visit holy cities such as Bethlehem and Jerusalem to celebrate Christmas this year, Israeli authorities said on Thursday.

Gazan Christians will be granted permits to travel abroad but none will be allowed to go to Israel and the occupied West Bank, home to many sites holy to Christians, a spokeswoman for Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians said.

Israel tightly restricts movements out of the Gaza Strip, territory controlled by militant group Hamas.

The spokeswoman said that following “security orders,” Gazans would be allowed to travel abroad via Israel’s Allenby Bridge border crossing with Jordan but not to visit cities in Israel or the West Bank.

Gaza has only around 1,000 Christians - most of them Greek Orthodox - among a population of 2 million in the narrow coastal strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to speculate if this is telegraphing that the IDF is planning some sort of "special mission" against these three key cities which are so important to the Christian faith and narrative, in order to create false flags in them, saying that it was the Palestinians who did such a thing, to get Christians generally annoyed with Palestinians as the IDF goes into Gaza with an alleged "countermeasure", to justify killing more innocent Palestinians.

Cheney warns US against Middle East pullout as even Washington Post digs up proof his War on Terror was ‘UNWINNABLE’

Ultra-hawk former vice president Dick Cheney has reprised his role as head cheerleader for the never-ending war he kicked off nearly 20 years ago. But has the prodigious conflict dragged on too long even for the war-happy MSM?

Cheney warned a rapt Dubai audience that “American disengagement” from the Middle East would play right into the hands of Iran and Russia, serving up “power voids” on a silver platter to any US rival willing to take the initiative. “Russia is always on standby to fill power voids,” he insisted on Monday, framing the Trump administration's move to wind down its military presence in northeastern Syria as a national embarrassment sure to set the stage for a resurgence of the Evil Empire coupled with a nuclear Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can this war criminal, with a name so vile it can barely be spoken in the homes of decent people, not possibly, please, shut up, and go home?!?

Continuing to lie to the world, about what "has been accomplished" in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, only makes the excrement of those lies flow higher and deeper, until, sir it has taken over the entirety of the ventilation system with a vengeance, and starts squirting it, gleefully, back out over those designer clothing you love to wear.

The cold, hard, and butt-ugly fact of the matter, sir, is that history will not treat you, or President Bush, or your and his minions, with much kindness.

History's mirror will see you, and the people who surrounded you professionally, precisely for what you are; soulless monsters, hell-bent on war, to drive the military industrial complex's revenues to incredibly high profits, in the process of destroying those countries, the natural resources of which, you and your team coveted greatly.

Blue State Blues: Our Founders Feared the ‘Tyranny of the Legislature’

Democrats insisted this week that they had to impeach President Donald Trump because our Founders feared a “king.” What they forgot, or never learned, is that our Founders feared the tyranny of the legislature as well.

Alexis de Tocqueville raised that point in his treatise, Democracy in America, where he warned that democracy could be destroyed by two forms of dictatorship: the despotism of a single ruler, and the tyranny of the majority.

Tocqueville quoted Thomas Jefferson’s letter to James Madison in 1789, in which he declared: “The executive, in our government is not the sole, it is scarcely the principal, object of my jealousy. The tyranny of the legislature is the most formidable dread and will be for many years.”

The Criminalization of Masculinity

For half a century, conservatives have been putting their readers to sleep with denunciations of the sexual revolution as a kind of anarchic free-for-all where men’s sexual impulses are gratified at the expense of women’s long-term well-being. But, as I have explained at length elsewhere, the current hook-up scene is no chaos of random coupling; it is a Darwinian competition between women for the attentions of a relatively small number of men. This mating system’s predictable output—possibly its intended output—is a large number of disappointed young women ripe for a message of resentment and revenge upon the opposite sex.

Conservative Media Blackout on Amnesty Bill Keeps GOP Voters in the Dark

More than 99% of Americans have no idea that Congress voted to pass an unpopular Amnesty bill yesterday (HR 5038: The Farm Workforce Modernization Act), which would grant Amnesty, jobs, and voting rights to more illegal immigrants than Reagan's 1986 Amnesty, because conservative and alternative media sources joined with the mainstream press to keep Americans in the dark about the bill.

Pro-Amnesty and open-borders elites are making massive gains in Washington while Americans are being distracted and neutralized by censorship, media blackouts, the impeachment spectacle, and the haze of the holidays.

Trump Folds: Will Cancel New China Tariffs, Offers To Cut Existing Tariffs By 50% In Exchange For Pledges: Report

And just like that, confirming weeks of media speculation, Trump has folded with the Dow Jones/WSJ reporting that not only will Trump not impose the new tariffs set to come into effect on Dec 15, but will cut existing tariffs by up to 50%.

Wikileaks Confirms- Israel Did 9-11

WikiLeaks document details Mossad orchestration of 9/11 including a flight from NY to Israel on 9/11 after all flights had been grounded. Israel is the enemy of the US. Any politician that is talking about Saudi Arabia and 9/11 is promoting a limited hangout meant to divert attention from Israel. By banning criticism of Israel, Donald Trump is officially complicit in the 9-11 murder of more than 3000 Americans.

Don’t Expect Any Truth From Washington

On November 25 I predicted that the DOJ would never rat on itself.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is part of the problem, has proven me correct with his whitewash of the politically orchestrated “investigation” of President Trump for collusion with Russia to steal the US presidential election. No one in his right mind could believe such a ridiculous accusation was worthy of investigation, especially when there was not a nano-gram of evidence, as the Mueller report confirmed.

VA Democrat: Let National Guard Force Counties to Honor Gun Control

Rep. Donald McEachin (D-VA) suggests Gov. Ralph Northam (D) can activate the National Guard and use it to force Second Amendment sanctuary counties to honor gun control.

There are dozens upon dozens of Second Amendment sanctuary counties and numerous sanctuary cities too. And the number continues to grow. On December 12, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Northam said Second Amendment sanctuary counties will face “consequences” for refusing to enforce gun control.

The Washington Examiner reports that Rep. McEachin suggested using the National Guard to force compliance.

Q’s ‘Biblical’ endgame of Deep State’s treason in 3 steps? IG FISA report documents 51 LIES to obtain illegal surveillance violations; FISA applications declassification next, then .01% arrests?

Appendix 1 on page 418 of the long-anticipated IG Report documents 51 areas of lies in the four FISA applications to spy on Carter Page/Trump campaign:
“No supporting documentation”: 33 of these factless claims (otherwise known as lies, or among ordinary Americans as making shit up).
“Supporting documentation does not state this fact”: 9 of these lies.
“Supporting documentation shows that the factual assertion is inaccurate”: 9 of these lies of commission.

Federal Marijuana Legalization Is A Lock – But How, When?

If you listen carefully, you will hear the sound of a crooked foundation known as marijuana prohibition starting to crumble in the United States. It has been more than eight decades since the federal government outlawed the cannabis plant nationwide, and yet, here we are finally standing on its lawn with torches in hand waiting for a day of reckoning.

Because no matter how much the suits on the Hill have schemed to enslave a population through backasswards drug laws, the nation has risen up in true knock-down-drag-out fashion and fought for its freedom back. Admittedly, this battle for legal bud took a lot longer than it should have, but considering that everyone in the trenches was stoned beyond belief, the marijuana movement seems to be arriving right on time.

Trump Wants Criticism of Israel Equated with Anti-Semitism

Anti-Zionism and anti-Israel are unrelated to hostility and bias toward Jews.

Israel is a nation-state, Judaism a religion. Some of Israel’s fiercest critics are Jews, clearly not self-hating ones.

Calling Jewish state critics anti-Semitic is a long-ago discredited canard.

The same goes for criticizing Zionism, tyranny by another name. The ideology is extremist, undemocratic, hateful, ruthless, racist, destructive, and hostile to peace, equity and justice.

It’s contemptuous of fundamental legal, moral and ethical principles, Jews unacceptably considered a chosen people superior to others.

Stop the Deep State’s “Free Trade” Agenda for Global Government

Stop the USMCA!
So you might be saying to yourself, how does the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) fit into this picture?

The short answer is that the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and its proposed successor, the 2018 USMCA, were both designed to provide steppingstones to regional (North American Union), then world (United Nations) government, exactly in accordance with the Deep State globalists’ strategy for establishing a global government as explained above by Newman.

Dec 12 12:44

Fool Me Once, Fool Me Twice: What’s Wrong With The USMCA?

President Trump said he was going to get out of NAFTA; then, he said he was going to renegotiate it. More recently he said that “we need to rebrand NAFTA”. He signed the rebranded, repainted and refurbished agreement, called the USMCA, at the G20 Summit in Argentina on Sunday, December 2, 2018. This new agreement actually expands the globalist NAFTA agreement and installs the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as a core – the same agenda that Trump claims to pulling the U.S. out of. It’s called regionalism: Globalists want this 1800 page, sovereignty killing, unconstitutional document for a governance ruled by unelected commissions forming a European style union in this hemisphere. Each country must ratify the document before it can take effect. Now is the time to contact your Congressman and tell them to say no to the USMCA and to tell them to get us out of NAFTA.

Dec 12 12:42

What’s Really in the USMCA?

This is treason and Trump supports it.

The new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is intended to replace the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA. As The New American has previously covered (here, here, and here), there are many problems with the USMCA that outweigh any potential economic benefits — mainly how it would erode America’s national sovereignty in favor of regional integration.Economic Integration

House Dems Impeach Trump

As expected, the Dems impeached Trump for winning an election he was supposed to lose, for wanting improved relations with Russia, and other issues unrelated to phony charges against him.

His real high crimes of war and against humanity were ignored. The same goes for betraying the public trust by serving monied interests exclusively at the expense of ordinary people.

Why? Because the vast majority in Congress share guilt, so Dems invented phony politicized reasons to charge him.

A Recipe For Civil War

A Recipe For Civil War
There is a war between red states and blue states, between gun-right rubes and confiscating-jews.

In blue state California, (once the go-to state for free spirit creatures), people are leaving and fleeing in droves en route to red state Texas.

And New York ‘values’ aren’t keeping its people in, with more leaving the state than any other.

For when sovereignty is pressurized into slavery, and freedom of speech is maligned as a medium of ‘hate,’ then a recipe for civil war is a sure and settled fate.

Breaking up is hard to do.

But with repressive laws out of DC, and a coerced culture too, it’s time we bid this tyranny adieu.

Just say “Nullify.”

Predictive Programming --- US Civil War?

(henrymakow.com)

There are too many articles predicting America is in for another Civil War. Since the beginning of 2019, there's a new one every week.

I've come to see these stories as PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING which is psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes.

When these changes are put through, the public is already be familiar with them and will accept them as natural progressions, thus lessening public resistance and commotion. For example, March 2, 2019, The Washington Post:

"At a moment when the country has never seemed angrier, two political commentators from opposite sides of the divide concurred recently on one point that was once nearly unthinkable: The country is on the verge of "civil war."

Vatican Caught Using Charity Donations To Cover Budget Shortfalls

While Pope Francis has long preached about the ills of economic inequality and sins of capitalism, the Catholic church has been robbing Peter's Pence to the tune of over $50 million annually to plug holes in their out-of-control budget - after paying over $3 billion in pedophile priest settlements around the world over several decades.

According to the Wall Street Journal, most of the roughly $55 million the church takes in annually goes towards "plugging the hole in the Vatican’s own administrative budget, while as little as 10% is spent on charitable works."

The little-publicized breakdown of how the Holy See spends Peter’s Pence, known only among senior Vatican officials, is raising concern among some Catholic Church leaders that the faithful are being misled about the use of their donations, which could further hurt the credibility of the Vatican’s financial management under Pope Francis. -Wall Street Journal

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW!! I knew the numbers were awful, but this is horrific.

So Pope Francis, a thought; it doesn't come from the mountain, but it is something you might want to at least consider.

Rather than celibate men, to become priests, why not reach out to married men and women with healthy, flourishing families?!? The greatest advert ever, for being both a happy Christian, is having a morally responsible, loving Christian family, which is flourishing.

You are welcome, Your Holiness!! :-)

Betraying the Constitution: Who Will Protect Us from an Unpatriotic Patriot Act?

While Congress subjects the nation to its impeachment-flavored brand of bread-and-circus politics, our civil liberties continue to die a slow, painful death by a thousand cuts.

Case in point: while Americans have been fixated on the carefully orchestrated impeachment drama that continues to monopolize headlines, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law legislation extending three key provisions of the USA Patriot Act, which had been set to expire on December 15, 2019.

Once again, to no one’s surprise, the bureaucrats on both sides of the aisle—Democrats and Republicans alike—prioritized political grandstanding over principle and their oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution.

SoCal Church Displays Holy Family As "Caged Refugees" At The Border

A Nativity scene in the southern California city of Claremont depicting the Holy Family as a separated family held in cages at the U.S. border is sparking controversy and conversations over President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.

“If this isn’t your church’s politics, you’ve got the wrong faith,” tweeted music journalist Zel McCarthy.

Vanity Fair writer Anthony Breznican said that the Claremont United Methodist Church tableau, depicting Joseph and Mary in cages on either side of a caged baby Jesus Christ, was an accurate representation of the meaning of the Bible story.

“I love the Nativity story,” said Breznican.

“I love it not because it is warm and fuzzy, but because it is about perseverance against cruelty.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are great problems, both theologically and geopolitically, with conflating the Nativity with Illegal Immigration.

If my memory of the Nativity story is correct, Mary and Joseph were going back to Bethlehem, due to a tax census by the Roman Government; they were following the law of the land, when Mary went into labor, and delivered Jesus in Bethlehem.

Illegal immigrants are not a race, or a "shade" of humankind; they start out having broken the law, by crossing the US border illegally.

States are becoming economically swamped, by trying to fill unfunded mandates for housing and education; and even religious entities cannot keep up, due to their increasing numbers, and demands for services.

Unvetted immigration translates to squalor in our streets, a huge rise in homelessness.

Is there something this country could do to forestall this?!? The short answer is, yes, if they place all the money going to these endless wars without end, to immigration support, legal, or otherwise, education, and housing, this could happen.

But I frankly wouldn't hold my breath; this will only occur... when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic.

North Korea Says US Has Nothing To Offer If Nuke Talks Resumed

A week after North Korea resumed its "dotard" insults at President Trump and their ambassador to the United Nations said further denuclearization talks are no longer needed, Reuters reported Thursday via Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) that, even if denuclearization talks resumed between both countries, the Trump administration has nothing to offer:

North Korea's foreign ministry criticized the Trump administration for meeting with officials at the UN Security Council and suggested that it would be ready to respond to any corresponding measures that Washington imposes.

"The United States said about corresponding measure at the meeting, as we have said we have nothing to lose and we are ready to respond to any corresponding measure that the US chooses," said KCNA citing a North Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real problem, to which President Trump appears to be utterly tone-deaf, is that issue of "quid pro quo", meaning, "If YOU do something, I will reciprocate by doing something."

But the American posture appears to be, to both Kim Jung Un, and North Korea; the following; "You ... do everything we have asked; then we will consider doing something for you."

This is the absolute antithesis of true negotiations ; and what President Trump may reap from this, is more nuclear North Korean tests, greater North Korean Nuclear capabilities, and more protection from China.

Flashback - David Bellamy: 'BBC axed me for rubbishing global warming'

BROADCASTER David Bellamy told yesterday how his television career was cut short by the BBC after he dismissed climate change.

The botanist and environmental campaigner said his scepticism over manmade global warming signalled an end to his screen presence.

Furthermore, all other work dried up, he was shunned by colleagues and vilified by green zealots.

Professor Bellamy said: “Someone even emailed me to say I was ‘the worst paedophile in the world’, basically saying I was killing children by denying global warming.”

Until then, television had appeared to be Bellamy’s natural habitat and he was one of the best-known faces in Britain.

Turkey May Close Incirlik Air Base for US Over Sanctions Against S-400 Purchase - Foreign Minister

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara will not abandon the Russian S-400 air defence systems in order to buy American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a statement that Ankara may insist that the US leave Incirlik air base if Washington goes ahead with the sanctions it has threatened in response to Turkey's purchase of S-400 missiles.

"We will assess the worst-case scenario and make a decision. If the US imposes sanctions against Turkey, then the issue of the Incirlik and Kurecik bases may be on the agenda," Cavusoglu said.
The missile attack early warning radar, which is part of the NATO missile defence system in Europe, deployed in the Kurecik region of Malatya province in southeastern Turkey, was put into operation in early 2012. Its functioning is provided for by the US military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What happens if the 50 US nuclear missiles cannot be retrieved which are held at Incirlik?!?

I seriously think that President Trump has to consider ALL his options on removing them, before things either get so frozen with Turkey that they will not move, or ..... another regional conflict heats up here?!?

Stage-Managing the Pensacola Naval Base Shooting: Mollycoddling the Face of Evil

As should be expected, the government is attempting to stage-manage the shooting at the Pensacola Naval Base. The Pentagon said sailors killed by a Saudi student reportedly angry over the serial murder of Muslims by the US government “showed exceptional heroism and bravery in the face of evil.”

The alleged shooter, Mohammed Alshamrani, shot dead by police, was a Saudi national said to be enrolled in pilot training the Florida naval base. It is the same naval base linked to the supposed 9/11 hijackers.

Sources told ABC News that investigators are working to determine if the shooter was acting out because of religious or ideological reasons or if there was some sort of problem or hostility that developed in the course of the training at Pensacola.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a great appreciation for Nimmo's work, and link to it frequently.

But I think Nimmo may have missed the mark in this article, and let me explain why, and I may tread on more than a few toes, but here it goes;

As long as many innocent Middle Eastern citizens get gunned down on a daily basis, to support US hegemony and the US government continues to give Israel an incredible pass in its pathological inability to "work well with others" in the region, it creates, in and of itself, the potential for this kind instability within this country, allowing violent reactions to these behaviours, to happen.

And please, don't get me started on the US enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen; I will never finish this post if I go there.

It is exceedingly difficult to "grow up", geopolitically, and discover, surprise, surprise, that the country in which you hold citizenship, has been perpetrating war crimes for resources, for a very, very long time.

I can never, ever condone this type of behaviour from the shooter, but understand how it came about.

I want all who are so inclined, to offer prayers for all who died, and the family and friends of those people, no matter the name of their faith, be they be my Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or Muslim brothers and sisters who want peace.

And please, as the winter festivals of Christmas and Passover approach, let us, collectively, watch out for each others' backs.

As everyone knows who reads this blog,I am a Christian pacifist activist, and I abhor violence, and never advocate it, at all.

But that being said, that being said, I am very concerned at the US's actions in the Middle East, and beyond, which can be characterized by:

1. Destabilizing what are perceived as "anti US governments", so that US-centric governments can replace them.

2. Expropriating resources to which the US has no moral right, making sure that our "friendly companies" are making the profits from these resources, which rarely - if ever - go back to the people of the country of their origin.

3. Insuring that these resources are only sold in US dollars.

We, in this country, need to have a reasoned, honest, and difficult, conversation, about how we behave toward the rest of the world, and how that behaviour might very well affect our collective safety in the future.

Do people randomly shoot at people from Lichtenstein?!? No.

Do people randomly shoot at people from Andorra?!? No.

Do people randomly shoot at people from Monaco?!? No.

And why?!? Yes, these are small countries, with minor economic clout; but they make deals, rather than wage wars, to get what they want; and that, my friends, is the difference.

Gabbard knocks Trump over handling of Pensacola air station shooting

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) ripped the Trump administration on Tuesday over its handling of last week's deadly shooting by a member of the Saudi military at a naval air station in Pensacola, Fla.

The Democratic presidential hopeful, who has been a vocal critic of the Saudi kingdom, knocked President Trump in an interview on Hill.TV, saying that his administration needs to call the shooting "for what it is."

”This was a terrorist attack that took the lives of three American service members and injured eight others,” Gabbard said during an appearance on Hill.TV's “Rising.”

“We need to call it for what it is instead of what President Trump has done with his own remarks, with Secretary [of State Mike] Pompeo basically putting out messages as though they are the spokespersons for the Saudi Kingdom rather than standing up for our country’s national security and what’s in the best interest of our country.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only thing she, apparently, blinks and misses here, is that both Al Qaeda and ISIS.... were themselves created, funded, and trained by US-sponsored entities.

Money, Power, and Turf: Winning the Middle East Media War at Any Cost

Of the 180 countries classified by Reporters Without Borders’ annual report on press freedom, seven Middle Eastern countries are listed at the bottom 10% category of the world’s worst violators.

In 2018, Israel, which often prides itself on being "the only democracy in the Middle East", ranked 88th, a hardly shocking realization, considering its constant targeting, killing, wounding and arresting of Palestinian journalists. The Palestinian Authority achieved an even worse rank, at 137th place. It is telling that not a single Middle Eastern country has made it to the top 30% rank.

In countries like Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, where independent monitoring of government behavior is almost entirely absent, hundreds of journalists simply disappear in the black hole of brutal prison systems – malnourished, medically neglected, and routinely tortured.

Oklahoma Bill Would Block Unconstitutional National Guard Deployments

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (Dec. 10, 2019) – A bill prefiled in the Oklahoma Senate would prohibit unconstitutional foreign deployments of the state’s National Guard troops. Passage into law would effectively restore the founders’ framework for a state-federal balance regarding the state militia.

Sen. Nathan Dahm (R-Broken Arrow) prefiled Senate Bill 1101 (SB1101) last week. The legislation would require a congressional declaration of war before Oklahoma National Guard units could be deployed into combat in a foreign country. The legislation reads in part:

US No Longer Considers Yemen’s Houthis an Iranian Proxy

The Trump Administration has announced a policy change that looks like it could be a major turning point in US policy toward Yemen, announcing that they no longer consider the Shi’ite Houthi movement in Yemen to be a proxy of the Iranian government.

That stance is one initially pushed by the Saudi government to justify the Yemen War, and the US was only too willing to mirror it. This was in spite of the Houthis having substantial ideological differences with Iran, little direct contact, and not being the same type of Shi’ites.

The US did not explain their change in stance, but it may reflect Saudi Arabia’s ongoing peace talks with the Houthis, as the US couldn’t possibly support a peace deal that involved an actual Iranian-linked faction.

Leadership Strips Approved Antiwar Measures From NDAAHouse limitations stripped away in final bill

he House version of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) set aside an irresponsibly large amount of money for military spending, but it also added some antiwar amendments and other very basic limitations. The House and Senate versions have now been reconciled into a final bill, and materially all of the limitations that the House voted on and approved have been stripped away, in favor of a $738 billion bill that continues spending, but makes no attempt to rein in the military in any serious way.

The House bill had included the latest attempt to use the power of the purse to end US military involvement in Yemen, something that both houses had attempted to do in a War Powers Act resolution that was previously vetoed by President Trump. That language will not be in the final bill.

The ‘Afghanistan Papers’ Highlight the Systemic Rot in U.S. Foreign Policy Making

here is a laundry list of reasons for why the U.S. foreign policy establishment comes up short on so many occasions. A total and complete absence of accountability in the industry ensures that those who demonstrate poor judgment are protected from punishment and allowed to repeat it. In this harsh political climate, politicians have an incentive to double down on the status-quo rather than admit mistakes. And an aversion to the smallest reform in Washington, D.C. means that it’s easier to simply go along to get along—even if doing so compounds failure.

‘Our friends didn’t have to die’: Afghanistan Papers surface pain and familiar frustrations

Lawmakers, veterans and experts have expressed shock and resignation after a Washington Post report Monday unveiled 18 years of distortion by U.S. officials over the prosecution of the war in Afghanistan.

The documents involved — more than 2,000 pages of confidential notes and interviews from more than 400 people, from ambassadors to troops on the ground — exposed a constant parade of failures while three presidential administrations insisted the war was moving in the right direction.

We must end the vicious, lethal cycle of misinformation and unspecified, unsupported strategies,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in response, calling for public hearings with Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper and other officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: US officials will always lie, about the necessity and "progress" of these endless wars, and don't give a damn about who gets killed or maimed for life in these miserable wars of conquest; all they give a damn about, is making sure that their buddies in the military/industrial complex, who overtly and covertly fund national election
campaigns get totally taken care of, which is a grim reality of American foreign policy.

Pentagon Shifts Focus Ahead Of Next War, Wants To Relocate Troops To Indo-Pacific Region

Very little headlines come out of the Middle East these days about the two-decade war the US has been fighting against terrorism. But what you hear on an increasing frequency are headlines outlining how Russia and China are the new enemies. The shift happened several years ago when the US military figured out that a great power competition was underway.

Instead of fighting unconventional enemies in the deserts of the Middle East, the Pentagon is preparing for major conflicts against Russia and China.

Hundreds of billions of dollars are being plowed into hypersonics, fifth-generation fighters and bombers, directed energy, space, cyber, quantum science, artificial intelligence, and automation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) Defense Secretary Esper, a word, please; what you are requesting be done, sounds like offence, rather than defense.

And somewhere, in your desire to re-position American troops, please remember; the total troop strength of the US military, as reflected in these numbers from Google:

United States Armed Forces
Reserve personnel 845,600
Deployed personnel 210,000
Expenditures
Budget US$693 billion (2019) (ranked 1st)

Globalfirepower, gives us the numbers on China:
2,693,000

That... gives China roughly a 2/1 advantage in troop strength; and until, Secretary Esper, you address that issue, this re-arrangement of US troops will be somewhat akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

With this government having knowingly lied to the public regarding Afghanistan, how long are you going to keep lying to the American people about the need to conscript, because our armed services are retchedly below quota, across the board?!?

IF the scenario, sir, is a US war against Russia and China, we are already behind the 8 ball, because we have neither the troop strength, or the weaponry to accomplish that mission.

Exposing The Promoters Of Climate Anxiety

I have gotten so many calls and emails from desperate folks I can't list them here. One woman tearfully told me her mother was desperately ill in California, but she couldn't move to be with her because she was afraid of the effects of climate change in that state. Another woman called, terribly worried about fires in western Washington from global warming. A few others asked about where they should move to escape our local apocalyptical conditions.

So why are all these people so anxiety-ridden and desperate? I believe it is the unconscionable exaggeration, hype, and fear-mongering of our media, special interest groups, some activist scientists, and a number of politicians. And it is unethical, ungrounded in science, and hurting the most vulnerable among us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that science teachers are teaching fact, and not freaking kids out, that the earth is going to die in 11 years, or whatever AOC said in her last tirade on this issue.

What we are facing, is not global warming right now, but a cycle of global cooling.

Global Warming By CO2 Or Cooling By A Grand Solar Minimum

And please check out this following article:

HomeArticlesThe Sun has been Spotless for a Total of 224 Days in 2019, and Counting… Looming Grand Solar Minimum

So why are we bing sold "global warming"?!? Ah, because there is money, vast sums of it, to be made, in trading carbon credits, which was precisely what Al Gore wanted to do; create an horrific planetary scenario which, of course, was going to destroy the planet, unless we all "did something"; and you know what?!?

He absolutely lied, because he didn't really have the science on his side, when he created his faux science schemes on global warming theory.

And looking outside our home here in Indiana, we are having the polar opposite of "global warming"; there's ice on the ground here, folks!

FISA Report Reveals Clinton Meddled In 2016 Election

Contained within Monday's FISA report by the DOJ Inspector General is the revelation that Fusion GPS, the firm paid by the Clinton campaign to produce the Steele dossier, "was paying Steele to discuss his reporting with the media." (P. 369 and elsewhere).

And when did Steele talk with the media (which got him fired as an FBI source)? September of 2016, roughly six weeks before the election.

One of the more damaging articles to result from these meetings was authored by Yahoo News journalist Michael Isikoff, who said in an interview that he was invited by Fusion GPS to meet a "secret source" at a Washington restaurant.

Senate Republicans To Let Bidens Off The Hook? May Skip Witnesses In 'Expedited' Impeachment Trial

While House Democrats are about to impeach President Trump for asking Ukraine to investigate the Bidens for what looks like obvious corruption - Senate Republicans have no interest in calling witnesses to determine whether Trump's request was justified in the first place.

According to the Washington Examiner, the GOP-controlled Senate have no plans to call key witnesses to testify in an impeachment trial. This means Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, John Kerry's stepson, Alexandra Chalupa and Ukrainian prosecutors involved in the Burisma case won't set foot in the Senate.

Their reasoning? Senate Republicans have "no appetite" for it.

Dem Congressman: Impeach Trump To Heal The Wounds Of Slavery

Authored by Graham Noble via LibertyNation.com,

It is hardly a surprise when Democrats accuse President Donald Trump of some terrible act. Nor is it shocking to hear the president incriminated for all manner of terrible and tragic events. But to witness a Democrat member of Congress blame Trump for slavery is too much of a stretch. Yet, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) is doing just that – or at least drawing a bizarre link between slavery and the current commander in chief.

Green, with a largely unremarkable political career, is now well known for one thing: his obsession with seeing this president impeached. The representative repeatedly and unsuccessfully introduced motions to impeach Trump – long before any phone calls to Ukrainian presidents.

Green’s Ridiculous Obsession

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This obsession, on the part of Green, is nothing less than certifiable; it is unfortunate, that there is no provision in the Constitution or Bill or Rights, to have an equivalent to the 25th Amendment, which allows a President to be removed from office, when he or she does not appear to be functional.

Because everytime Green grandstands on this issue, he is NOT doing the work his constituents are asking him to do, and that is a damn shame.

And the utter and completely contemptuous tearing apart of the American body politic on this issue of impeachment on non-evidence, is nothing short of an horrific crime against the citizens of this country, in and of itself.

Jonathan Turley: "They Even Threatened My Dog" For Defending Trump At Impeachment Hearings

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

Law professor Jonathan Turley revealed that even his dog was violently threatened after he testified in favor of President Trump during the impeachment hearings.

Turley already spoke about death threats he received following his testimony last week, but went further in an interview with CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell.

“I know you received a lot of threats after what you did last week,” O’Donnell told the George Washington University law professor.

“And my wife and dog,” Turley responded.

“To be fair, you did talk about them during your testimony. You did bring up your wife and dog,” O’Donnell said.

“Who would shoot a Goldendoodle?” Turley asked in response.

“Maybe a Shih Tzu, but not a Goldendoodle. I don’t understand where the anger comes from. Although as an academic, the thought that you could talk about James Madison and that would be fighting words is something I haven’t seen outside of a law school.”

These Secretive Oil Companies Control $3 Trillion In Wealth

Authored by Anes Alic via OilPrice.com,

They control the vast majority of the world’s oil and gas assets, yet the average person has never even heard of them, outside of those that are famous for things like getting attacked by missiles or becoming embroiled in a high-profile corruption scandal.

State-owned oil and gas companies (aka, the national oil companies, or NOCs) control at least US$3 trillion in oil and gas assets, compared to around $2.5 trillion as of 2017, and hold an estimated 90% of all known reserves--considerably more than publicly listed companies such as BP, ExxonMobil and Shell. Meanwhile, Saudi Aramco leads the pack as the world’s most profitable company.

That means that NOCs control about as much wealth as all U.S. billionaires or roughly twice the assets of global multilateral development banks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oil , and access to it, are critical to war, as there has not yet quite been a tank created which can run on solar; wind; cold fusion; or hydrogen.

If you see a sudden huge upshove at your local gas station, and all around you, that rise is generally telegraphing a prelude to war.

Introduction to Terpenes

A wondrous Plant.

The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of chemicals and compounds. About 140 of these belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes (pronounced tur-peens).

Terpenes are common constituents of flavorings and fragrances. Terpenes, unlike cannabinoids, are responsible for the aroma of cannabis. The FDA and other agencies have generally recognized terpenes as “safe.”

Terpenes act on receptors and neurotransmitters; they are prone to combine with or dissolve in lipids or fats; they act as serotonin uptake inhibitors (similar to antidepressants like Prozac); they enhance norepinephrine activity (similar to tricyclic antidepressants like Elavil); they increase dopamine activity; and they augment GABA (the “downer” neurotransmitter that counters glutamate, the “upper”).

Russian fighter jets have intercepted Israeli warplanes that were flying over southern Syria, media reports say.

According to Russian publication Avia.Pro, Russia’s warplanes intercepted the Israeli warplanes that had been seeking to attack the T-4 Airbase in Syria's western province of Homs last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have wondered just how long Putin will put up with this nonsense, before he does something substantial; at the moment, he seems to be content with deflecting Israeli bombs, which were intended for targeting Syria.

But I cannot believe that he will not take a harder stance, at some point in the near future, against Israeli government impudence in this area.

Yemen/Saudi-led war on Yemen killed over 3,600 Yemeni children, paralyzed 800

After 1,700 days of a Saudi-led war on impoverished Yemen, more than 3,600 children have been killed, 800 paralyzed and 400,000 others hit with malnutrition.

According to a report released on Sunday by the Yemeni-based Organization for Women and Children’s Rights, 7,500 children have fallen victim to the ongoing Saudi-led war, since its start in March 2015.

Of these ill-fated children, 3,672 were killed and 800 others were paralyzed, it said, adding that the rest were either maimed or received other kinds of life altering injuries.

The war of aggression also hit 400,000 other Yemeni children with malnutrition, Yemen's Arabic-language al-Masirah television network further cited the report as saying.

Separately on Sunday, Yemen’s health ministry also confirmed that 800 children are suffering from permanent disabilities due to wounds they received in Saudi-led airstrikes during the past five years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US military has been aiding and abetting these Saudi war crimes in Yemen, and yet there does not seem to be any remorse, any consideration of the horrific genocide done to these children, on the part of US civilian or military officials.

To understand that the government of the country of which you are a citizen, is routinely involved in war crimes around the world, is adding insult to injury. Mr. President, please; pull US forces out of both Saudi Arabia and Yemen now!!

You never should have allowed one of your BFFs in the Middle East, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to talk you into any further commitment by the US military, to further engage in what can only, ultimately, be solved diplomatically.

Just how bad was the FBI’s Russia FISA? 51 violations and 9 false statements

To understand just how shoddy the FBI’s work was in securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant targeting the Trump campaign, you only need to read an obscure attachment to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report.

Appendix 1 identifies the total violations by the FBI of the so-called Woods Procedures, the process by which the bureau verifies information and assures the FISA court its evidence is true.

The Appendix identifies a total of 51 Woods procedure violations from the FISA application the FBI submitted to the court authorizing surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page starting in October 2016.

A whopping nine of those violations fell into the category called: “Supporting document shows that the factual assertion is
inaccurate.”

NEWSWEEK REPORTER RESIGNS AFTER ACCUSING OUTLET OF SUPPRESSING OPCW LEAK STORY

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

A Newsweek journalist has resigned after the publication reportedly suppressed his story about the ever-growing OPCW scandal, the revelation of immensely significant plot holes in the establishment Syria narrative that you can update yourself on by watching this short seven-minute video or this more detailed video here.

“Yesterday I resigned from Newsweek after my attempts to publish newsworthy revelations about the leaked OPCW letter were refused for no valid reason,” journalist Tareq Haddad reported today via Twitter.

“I have collected evidence of how they suppressed the story in addition to evidence from another case where info inconvenient to US government was removed, though it was factually correct,” Haddad said.

CALIFORNIA WOMAN SUES TSA FOR DETAINING HER, FORCING HER TO SUBMIT TO “GROIN SEARCH”

The blue-shirted TSA employees of which all travelers are familiar hold the job title, “Transportation Security Officer.” But despite the “officer” title emblazoned upon the plastic badge on their chest, TSA screeners are not law enforcement officers, do not have the authority to make arrests or hold travelers for any length of time, and if you break the law at a checkpoint, their only option is to call the real police to deal with the situation.

Unfortunately, that plastic badge appears to occasionally cause TSA screeners to “forget” the boundaries of their authority.

These screenings have utterly nothing to do with security, and everything to do with getting people to cower in front of anyone wearing a badge, which identifies them as a would-be Federal Agent.

US CITY TO PAY REPARATIONS TO AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY WITH TAX ON MARIJUANA SALES 

SOURCE: TELEGRAPH.CO.UK
A city in Illinois has announced it will create a reparations fund for its African American community through a new tax on marijuana sales.

Recreational use of the drug will become legal in the state from January and officials in Evanston, which is 12 miles north of Chicago, have voted to approve a 3 per cent tax on the sales to fund a local reparations programme.

The tax is expected to generate between $500,000 and $750,000 annually for the reparations fund, which will be capped at $10 million over the next ten years.

The city's lawmakers will meet next week to determine exactly how the fund will be distributed, but one idea being proposed is for the money to go towards things like skills training or financial assistance for down payments on a home in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will be a bell-weather program, and if it appears to succeed, will see other states adopt other ways of doing this.

But I have to ask; what about people whose families were indentured servants, trading labor for their freedom?!? What about Chinese immigrants who were literally gang-pressed into service for building our nation's critical rail infrastructure?!? There is a lot of victimhood to be found folks, if one wants to really look for it.

I am thinking out loud here, but what if the funding actually went to raising the standards, and educational excellence of schools which are primarily minority attended?!? There are some incredible lessons to be learned from the Kumon Schools, (www.kumon.com); the Waldorf Schools; www.waldorfeducation.org) and the Montessori Schools; Schoolshttps://amshq.org/Educators/Montessori-Careers?)

And BTW, have you ever heard of a school shooter attempting to attack one of the children from the above private schools?!? The short answer is, never.

And these are the kinds of schools kids want to come back to in the morning, because they have have had fun, and learned, simultaneously.

But it cannot just be the kid involved here; it has to be the parents (or parent), or closest family member involved with these children, as well; when families fail, children fail. when families succeed, so do their children.
So whatever it takes to get the families involved in their kids' education, even if they are just starting in preschool, has to be factored in as well.

Photos Show Greek Fighter Jet 'Locked On' To Turkish Warships Near Cyprus

Via Al-Masdar News,

A Greek fighter jet allegedly obtained 'missile lock' on a Turkish frigate that was traveling off the coast of Cyprus on December 8, 2019, the Aviationist reported.

Citing photos from the Twitter profile of journalist Yannis Nikitas, the Aviationist reported that a Greek Mirage 2000 jet targeted the Turkish frigate with Exocet anti-ship missiles during a show of force over the weekend.

Here is some further clarification, from Wikipedia: The Cyprus dispute

The article goes on to state: "It entered its current phase in the aftermath of the 1974 Turkish military invasion and occupation of the northern third of Cyprus. Only Turkey recognizes the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, while there is broad recognition that the ongoing military presence constitutes occupation of territories that belong to the Republic of Cyprus. According to the European Court of Human Rights, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus should be considered a puppet state under effective Turkish control.[3][4]"

FBI Didn't Tell Surveillance Court That Carter Page Was "Operational Contact" For CIA With "Positive Assessment"

Authored by Chuck Ross via National Interest,

The FBI failed to inform surveillance court judges that Carter Page was an “operational contact” for the CIA for years, and that an employee at the spy agency gave the former Trump aide a “positive assessment,” according to a Justice Department report released Monday.

The finding is included in a list of seven of the FBI’s “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Page, a longtime energy consultant who joined the Trump campaign in March 2016.

Pilot Comparative Study on the Health of Vaccinated and Unvaccinated 6-12 Year Old US Children

By Mark Blaxill

In a development that autism parents have long anticipated, the first-ever, peer-reviewed study comparing total health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children was released on line yesterday. According to sources close to the project, the study had been reviewed and accepted by two different journals, both of which pulled back on their approval once the political implications of the findings became clear. That’s largely because, as parents have long expected, the rate of autism is significantly higher in the vaccinated group, a finding that could shake vaccine safety claims just as the first president who has ever stated a belief in a link between vaccines and autism has taken office.

Last week, President Donald Trump, outgoing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met in Argentina and signed the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA. This treaty is intended to further the political merger of these countries). USMCA, like NAFTA, stifles free trade, overrides national sovereignty, and increases the power of the UN and the World Trade Organization. The document obligates the US to follow UN Agenda 2030 and rule by unelected bureaucrats. -GEG

NETANYAHU’S PERSONAL LAWYER TO BE CHARGED WITH MONEY LAUNDERING

SOURCE: INDEPENDENT UK
Israel’s state prosecutor has plans to indict prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cousin and personal lawyer, alongside six other people, on charges related to a possible conflict of interest over a $2bn purchase of German submarines.

Shai Nitzan said in a statement on Thursday the seven would be charged on various corruption offences, including money laundering, bribery and fraud – pending a hearing.

Among them is Mr Netanyahu’s attorney, David Shimron, who represented the German firm involved and was suspected of using his influence over the prime minister in return for a hefty cut of the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color an already geopolitically wounded and dangerous Prime Minister, even more so, with these accusations levelled against his attorney.

And please remember; just last Wednesday, Secretary of State Pompeo and Netanyahu met, to push forward with a new US/Israeli Defense pact, Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact; Netanyahu argues he should stay in power because of deal

The article goes on to state: "Netanyahu looks to be steering heavily into this US lifeline, arguing that the deal proves he needs to stay in power, and that in the event of a rotation government with Gantz, he’d have to be first because of his “unique” ties with the US.

Details of the pact aren’t clear, beyond it committing the US to war to defend Israel. Those familiar with it have said the pact would in no way restrict Israel’s ability to unilaterally attack targets across the region, meaning constant Israeli attacks on targets in Syria and Iraq could continue."

Congress' last day in session this year is (ironically enough) this coming Friday, 13 December; I am very concerned, because of the enormous geopolitical strain Netanyahu is experiencing, both with being unable to create a government at home, coupled with his legal woes, will push him to push every AIPAC member in Congress to support this bill, either as a fast-track bit of legislation, or as a rider to a "must pass" piece of legislation, which has to have Congress' approval by the 13th.

There is a legal precedent for this in the Patriot Act, which was the rider, inserted into the bill at the last minute, which held pharmaceutical companies and indemnified them against any harm their products could cause.

The following article sheds a bit of light as to the nature of this rider, and why it managed to get written into the Homeland Security Act: The Homeland Security Act and the Mystery of the Eli Lilly Rider

But if a rider with the potential capability to create harm nationally, by allowing the continuing use of Thimerosal in vaccines, was allowed to be placed into a National Piece of legislation, just imagine how horrific a rider "committing the US to war to defend Israel" could be to our country.
'
I am going to be watching this like a hawk, this next week, hoping and praying that this neither gets through Congress, nor that President Trump empowers this pact through an executive order.

‘They murdered him’: Family slams police for killing UPS driver carjacked by armed robbers

Video of the final shootout. Really noisy.

A violent police response to a botched robbery in Florida has come under fire by one victim’s family. The high-speed chase ended in a shootout in which officers gunned down the robbers, but also a hostage and a bystander.

At least 19 officers from five different agencies fired over 200 rounds at the robbers in the intense gun battle on Thursday, after a failed jewelry store holdup led police on a chase spanning several counties in South Florida.

Pearl Harbor Revisited: Dispelling Surprise Attack Mythology

“I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.”

Around one hour after Roosevelt’s December 8 address before a joint congressional session, the body declared war on Japan with one dissenting vote, signed into law by FDR the same day.

All wars are unjustifiably justified based on Big Lies and deception, WW II no exception. Roosevelt wanted involvement in Europe’s war. He wanted legislation requiring US neutrality reversed.

After the Japanese code was broken, intercepted cables confirmed an attack was coming. The US tracked its fleet from the Kurile Islands to its North Pacific refueling point en route to Pearl Harbor on or about December 7.

At a December 5 cabinet meeting, Navy Secretary Frank Knox said: “Well, you know Mr. President, we know where the Japanese fleet is?”

Japan – Ending a War and Saving Lives?

I hope Curtis is enjoying the heat in Hell!

Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s aide, Brigadier Gen. Bonner Fellers, called LeMay’s bombing of Tokyo “one of the most ruthless and barbaric killings of noncombatants in all history”, but LeMay was proud of his accomplishment in Japan, as he would later be in Korea, boasting that he successfully “scorched and boiled and baked to death well over half a million Japanese civilians, perhaps nearly a million”, in that one event in Tokyo alone. After the success of this first attack, LeMay was determined to continue, stating his intention to have Tokyo entirely “burned down – wiped right off the map”, and proceeded to carry out his homicidal determination with repeated fire-bombings covering an increasingly greater area of Japan.

The iPhone 11’s U1 chip necessitates constant geolocation checks, Apple says

Earlier this week, security reporter Brian Krebs published a story explaining that Apple's latest iPhones (iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro) periodically check the user's location even if the user disables location services individually for each and every app and service in the iPhone's Settings app.

While this behavior ended when the user disabled location services system-wide, it was a bit of a head-scratcher. What was the iPhone doing and why? Was it sending this information to Apple? Why couldn't users find information on what was happening? Krebs had notified Apple of the issue as a potential security problem back in mid November, but the company responded this week stating:

Six Saudis Arrested For Questioning After Pensacola Shooting - Three Were Filming Attack

Six Saudi nationals were taken into custody for questioning near the Florida naval base where an Air Force trainee - also from Saudi Arabia - opened fire Friday morning, killing three before a sheriff's deputy shot and killed him.

According to the New York Times, three of the Saudis were filming the attack. It is unknown whether they were students at the base, or whether they are connected to the gunman.

The shooting spanned two floors in a classroom, according to Sheriff David Morgan of Escambia Country. Two deputies were shot in the ensuing gun battle and are expected to recover.

The gunman, identified as Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, used a locally bought Glock 45 9mm handgun with an extended magazine, and was carrying between four and six more magazines.

In his last message on Twitter confirmed by AFP, Alshamrani wrote that America is a nation of evil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The thing that is most hard for me to fathom, from a pragmatic perspective is this; why were the people surveilling me and Mike on line, not surveilling this guy's Tweets, from the moment he got here?!?

And who were the guys filming this assassination?!? How did they know to be there, cameras in hand, when this entire set of murders went down?!?

Denied Entry to Gaza for Breast Cancer MissionA full training and treatment project was wrecked after Israel had denied permission for Philippa Whitford.

Israeli occupation has denied permission for British lawmaker, Philippa Whitford, who is a doctor, from entering Gaza to offer help for patients of breast cancer.

Over the past two and half years[1], I have been working with Medical Aid for Palestine (MAP) to improve the provision of services and treatment for breast cancer patients in Palestine.

Last year, I travelled out with the specific aim of setting up a project to enable experienced professionals in breast cancer care to provide teaching and training to local Palestinian clinicians working with breast cancer patients.

Since my last visit, I have managed to recruit a team of specialists from all over Scotland to join the project, which will help improve breast cancer care – prevention, diagnosis and treatment – for women in Gaza and the West Bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is unredeemably vile, on the part of Israel officials, who really want these women to die, rather than profit from advances in breast cancer care.

But you have to look at this from the larger perspective of the Israeli Government's "Final Solution to the Palestinian Question"; denying these women state of the art care, is all part of the plan.

Most of us know - or know of - someone who has been diagnosed with this kind of cancer, but have, luckily, been able to beat it, at least in a first remission period.

All women on this planet, deserve the best, most intelligent approaches to beating this disease which exist today.

US House Votes Against Israeli Annexation of West Bank

The resolution was intended both to contradict President Trump, whose recent positions have been pro-occupation and pro-annexation, as well as to potentially warn Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu against any hasty annexations, something he’s been advocating recently.

The bill was hardly perfect, which meant a lot of the voting on the margins defied conventional wisdom. Some traditional critics of Israel voted against the bill over language, and still others rejected the bill because it proscribed a US-imposed solution.

The “gang of four” stood as four Democrats opposing the resolution, and did so because the bill’s final version removed any mention of settlements, of Israel being an occupying power, and watered down language about the two-state solution at the behest of more centrist Democrats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really worrying me about Israel right now, is a new draft proposal, conjured up by Netanyahu and Pompeo, which I am certain, Pompeo is going to present, hurriedly to Congress, and push it through to get it passed, before their last day of this session (and I find this ironically amusing), which is Friday the 13th.

This bill Proposed US/Israeli Defense Treaty Gaining Steam after Pompeo/Neetanyahu MeetThe article goes on to state:

"A proposed US-Israeli defense treaty is gaining steam after a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (currently representing an 'interim' government) and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Lisbon this week.

Speaking of the controversial defense pact, Netanyahu told reporters of the Wednesday discussion: “The meeting with Pompeo was critical for Israeli security,” and added, “We agreed to promote a defense pact.”

However, such a controversial pact wold have a long way to go in the domestic politics of both nations, considering it would commit the United States to war to defend Israel. This also at a time when Israel has frequently attacked what it deems 'Iranian targets' inside Syria and Iraq in what both countries have condemned as acts of brazen aggression."

I have a deep concern that such an act may well get placed as a rider, or amendment, to a larger, "gotta pass this one" bill", and become law, before it has a chance to be seen for what it is, in the cold, cruel light of morning; a commitment to defend Israel, no matter what it has done, and no matter how wrong it was in doing so, and which may give Netanyahu another chance to "ride herd" on the Israeli government as Prime Minister, even with those corruption charges hanging over his head.

DHS WANTED TO ADD US CITIZENS TO THE LONG LIST OF PEOPLE SUBJECTED TO MANDATORY FACE SCANS AT AIRPORTS... BUT HAS BACKED DOWN FOR NOW

We knew the DHS would get to this point eventually. Since the beginning of its biometric scanning program rollout, the DHS has planned on adding US citizens to the list of people forced to trade their faces for air travel privileges. So far, the program has been limited to suspicious foreigners (which is all of them, including those here on visas), but a recent filing -- caught by Zack Whittaker at TechCrunch -- says flying in the United States would soon require adding yourself to the government's facial recognition databases.

Homeland Security wants to expand facial recognition checks for travelers arriving to and departing from the U.S. to also include citizens, which had previously been exempt from the mandatory checks.

In a filing, the department has proposed that all travelers, and not just foreign nationals or visitors, will have to complete a facial recognition check before they are allowed to enter the U.S., but also to leave the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a little more than stunned at this; I am a Christian pacifist activist, constantly exhorting her government to behave in a moral, responsible manner, and never, ever advocate violence.

And my only tools here are logic, and responsible linking and posting.

So folks, why me?!?

Because logic....doesn't run either US domestic or foreign policy, money does.

And so how does that play out in this country?!?

Let me count the ways...

IF logic were the watchword of this government, every kid coming out of high school would be literate, nummerate, and very capable of critical thinking.

That this does not happen, is done deliberately, in order to create a permanent underclass, for the rest of us to "have to take care of"for the rest of their lives.

Because they are incapable of reason, and are dependent upon government services, they are more easily swayed toward a certain end by government propaganda, and that ... is just where the US government wants them to be.

If logic were the watchword of this government, our money would be backed by something of intrinsic value, which at the moment, it is not, and has not been since Nixon took the US off the gold standard in 1971. Nixon's Colossal Monetary Error; the verdict 40 years later.

If logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no "pay to play" corruption schemes, because the finances of ALL Federal government officials would be put into a blind trust for the duration of their service.

And finally, if logic were the watchword of this government, there would be no more hegemonic wars to attempt to keep the value of US paper money in tact; and there are countries around the world which are leaving the US dollar in droves, toward other "baskets" of currencies, particularly the BRICS nations; Russia and China are becoming "fiscally allergic" to doing any business transactions in the US dollar, and are working diligently to ensure that the divorce from the US dollar is ultimately final, and complete.

Russia's bid to ditch the US dollar is working slowly, but obstacles remain.

Diteching the US dollar emerges as popular 2019 Market Fix Call.

And to all those "alphabet soup agency" personnel tasked/cursed with reading this site, please remember; at best, I am, simply, just a very minor annoyance,and the polar antithesis of a "threat."

Unfortunately, the real "threat" to this country, comes from how those in the Bowels of Power in DC, who choose to use the power of its military to enmesh the world with endless wars, expropriating natural resources to which the US and its corporate money junkies have absolutely no moral right, and slaughtering those people who have the misfortune to live over, or around, those resources.

And I have to wonder; will those in the Federal Government, also have to have their faces scanned at the airport, before they can get on a plane?!?

I would almost be willing to bet, that the short answer to that question, would be, "HELL, no!!""

'He wired us that way': Mark Richardson blames God for Kiwis' porn habits

Following recent news that New Zealanders, on average, watch a concerning amount of porn, TV host Mark Richardson shared his thoughts on why Kiwis enjoy it so much.

Richardson pointed the finger at an unlikely target, when it comes to pornography: God.

"Can I blame the good Lord for our porn habit?" the TV show host and former cricketer said on The AM Show earlier today.

"Clearly he's wired us that way... our fascination with sex. Because we need to procreate don't we, to continue the species."

*What I am more worried about is that the Government is preparing law changes to regulate online pornography like the UK, which was dropped.*

Israeli Officials Warn Annexation May Lead Jordan to Take Drastic Steps

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is keen to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, on the grounds that the US is going to let him do so. Israeli officials, particularly military officials, are warning against one of the primary targets, the Jordan Valley.

The Jordan Valley, which connects the West Bank to Jordan, is something the Israeli right has long wanted to annex, as it would mean the rest of the Palestinian West Bank would never have a border with any nation other than Israel.

Military officials are warning that the big problem would be with Jordan itself, and that this move would further damage Israel-Jordan ties, and might force the Jordanian government to take drastic steps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel's back; the Jordanian government must really be concerned right now, and I don't blame them one whit.

This would be a complete game-changer for the Palestinians, and definitely not a good one, either.

Netanyahu, Pompeo Push Forward With US-Israel Defense Pact: Netanyahu argues he should stay in power because of deal

On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met for an hour and 45 minutes on the specifics of a proposed US-Israel defense pact. The pact amounts to a more or less direct US intervention in Israeli politics, after two elections failed to end with a government formed.

The Trump Administration had made no bones about preferring Netanyahu over his primary political rival Benny Gantz, and the pact seems to be pandering to that fact, since Gantz is opposed to the deal.

Netanyahu looks to be steering heavily into this US lifeline, arguing that the deal proves he needs to stay in power, and that in the event of a rotation government with Gantz, he’d have to be first because of his “unique” ties with the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And does Congress have to approve this in-the-works pact, or is it simply signed by President Trump, as an Executive Order?

Because if it is "President To President" and there is no Congressional oversight and approval to even begin to study its implications for the US's defense of Israel, this means that Israel can demand that US fight its wars for it in perpetuam, perpetually, beginning with a war against Iran.

West Ramp Up Anti-Iran Propaganda

US and Western European officials are continuing a strategy of making dubious allegations against Iran in an effort to try to justify continued military hostility, which is expected to involve a large US military buildup in the region.

In Europe, this is centering on claims about Iran’s conventional missile systems, arguing that they are in violation of a UN ban on nuclear-capable missiles even though Iran doesn’t have any nuclear warheads. Iran has pointed out this is a lie, saying they have a right to missile systems under international law.

This allegation, pushed by Britain, France, and Germany, is likely to be a red herring that will be used in upcoming talks with Iran about their civilian nuclear program to distract from relatively straightforward matters of sanctions relief and enrichment limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Demonization is generally the last act before an actual invasion; that being said, however, there are many more millions in this country, and beyond, who now understand, in hindsight, and without a shadow of a doubt, that this was the same kind of codswallop we were getting, courtesy of the corporate media, before the invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sorry, President Trump; no deal here at all.

Pentagon ‘Denies’ Plans to Send 14,000 More Troops to Area Around Iran

The denial isn’t necessarily particularly binding, since the consideration would’ve been at the White House level, not the Pentagon level. The Pentagon has often made policy proclamations that don’t pan out when the administration makes decisions.

In all likelihood, a series of options are being considered, with all reports pointing to the US again escalating its presence. Sending another 14,000 troops is likely on the extreme end of possibilities, but there appears to be no denying that another buildup is in the offing.

The Navy is already talking about the possibility of sending a second aircraft carrier to the region, if so ordered, with Admiral Mike Gilday saying the US could “absolutely” do this as part of the maximum pressure campaign on Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would sincerely like to hope (and pray) that those in the Bowels of Power in DC; the Pentagon; the White House; and Congress, do remember that the following statement was made by a Russian official to an Iranian Official back in June of this last year. As reported by the Moscow Times, English Edition, on 26 June of 2019:

IRAN WON'T BE ALONE IF THE US ATTACKS- RUSSIAN OFFICIAL SAYS

We all know that "plausible deniability" is a religion for members of this country's leadership; but war with Russia, in order to decap Tehran?!?

I would like to hope that reasonably sane people would not consider this a great idea; in fact, this would be one of the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly things the US government and military could do; that being said, unfortunately, there is absolutely no guarantee that the US government and military won't haul off and do it.

BOOM! Rudy Giuliani Meets with Ukrainian Lawmaker Andrey Derkach Who Revealed Burisma Holdings Paid Joe Biden $900,000 for Lobbying

In October Ukrainian Parliamentarian Andrey (Andriy) Derkach revealed in a press conference that Joe Biden was paid $900,000 for lobbying efforts from Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.

This is the same organization that paid Hunter Biden over $50,000-83,000 a month to sit on their board in an obvious pay-for-play maneuver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tom Perez, PLEASE,. DAMMIT!!! you owe it to both your Party, and the nation, to get Biden to withdraw his candidacy, because these revelations will absolutely kill him when election time rolls around in 2020, if by some wild and unforeseen circumstance he actually wins the primary spot as your Presidential Candidate.

Or, are you just not making the effort, because you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Hillary will win a third-time try at the Presidential nomination in a brokered convention?!?

Dem Rep. Green: ‘No Limit’ to How Many Times We Can Try to Impeach Trump

Thursday on C-SPAN, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) discussed impeachment, saying “there is no limit” to how many times the House and Senate can try to impeach President Donald Trump.

Green said he suspects Trump will have additional offenses in the future, so he believes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will “move forward” with a vote to impeach Trump for his alleged quid pro quo demand with Ukraine and then try again “at a later time” if they find more during their investigations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Representative Green may be correct on his assessment of there being no Statute of Limitations on impeachment; but at what cost to this country's political process, not to mention the nation's heart and soul?!?

Apparently, Representative Green is at his happiest when he can be a part of the impeachment process.

But I sincerely hope that his constituents, who elected him to actually represent them, understand that every moment he spends on the impeachment process against President Trump, that is a moment stolen from their real needs and concerns.

MASSIVE LEAK CONFIRMS TURKEY'S "GOLD-FOR-GAS" SCHEME TO EVADE US SANCTIONS ON IRAN

OURCE: ZEROHEDGE
We first started noticing major 'odd' exports of gold from Turkey to Iran in May 2012. Turkey’s trade balance fluctuated wildly as gold stocks flowed out of the country in bursts.

“Turkey’s going to continue it,” the Turkish economy minister said. “If those casting aspersions on the gold trade are searching for immorality, they should take a look in the mirror.”

Then, in 2014, we discussed Turkey's "200 tons of secret gold" trade with Iran detailing how a complex network that spanned Turkey, China, Dubai and Iran was used to skirt US sanctions on energy exports from Iran.

The operation featured an Iranian-born businessman who liked fast horses, faster cars and the fastest planes. His unique skill: Getting gold into sanctions-encircled Iran.

Enough gold that for a time he became the government’s key instrument in improving Turkey’s irksome economic imbalance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what President Trump and NATO (which still also has stringent sanctions against Iran)are going to do about this.

I mean, Edrogan was just at the White House a couple of weeks ago, right?!?
President Trump meets with Turkish President Erdogan at the White House, 11/13/2019

If this was NEVER on the table, in terms of their discussions, one has to wonder to the degree President Trump feels betrayed about these very consistent shenanigans on Turkey's "trading with the (alleged) enemy" right now.

Auckland mum shocked after neighbours call police because of children's dinnertime tantrum

An Auckland mum was shocked to have two police cars on her driveway after an anonymous neighbour called police about the screams of her children.

Queeny Guo, from Glenfield, says she was working late and her husband was dealing with a dinnertime tantrum from the couple's three children, on what had already been a stressful day, when police knocked on their door on Wednesday evening.

She says her six-year-old was fighting with her sibling at dinnertime but nothing could make them expect police to show up.

"We were all in shock of what had happened. If you have children at home you will understand that sometimes kids just don't stop over their own tantrum. If you could not deal with kid's cry, feel free to come knock at the door and talk to us. Totally waste of police power," she posted on her local Facebook group.

LeMay said, “If we’d lost the war, we’d all have been prosecuted as war criminals.” And I think he’s right. He, and I’d say I, were behaving as war criminals. LeMay recognized that what he was doing would be thought immoral if his side had lost. But what makes it immoral if you lose and not immoral if you win?

“There are no innocent civilians. It is their government and you are fighting a people, you are not trying to fight an armed force anymore. So it doesn’t bother me so much to be killing the so-called innocent bystanders.”

“Killing Japanese didn’t bother me very much at that time… I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal…. Every soldier thinks something of the moral aspects of what he is doing. But all war is immoral and if you let that bother you, you’re not a good soldier. ”

The Tell: The Jewish players in impeachment

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The first public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry began this week with quite a splash.

A bunch of Jewish actors are at play in this drama, and we’ve covered some before:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who is caught in the middle of it all.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the Californian Democrat who is running the hearings.
And Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the associates of Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lawyer, who are alleged to be instrumental in pressuring Zelensky to give in to Trump and provide damaging information on his political rivals.

In the hearings Wednesday, and in their aftermath, there were some new and familiar Jewish wrinkles. Here are a few:
