Dan Rather on David Letterman Show, 9/17/01 Discusses Dancing Israelis: "We've Never Dealt With These Kind Of Hateful, To The Core, EVIL PEOPLE"

Dan Rather was a guest on CBS 'Late Nite With David Letterman' show on September 17: "there's several witnesses who say this happened. They got on the roof of the building- to look across. They knew what was going to happen. They were waiting for it to happen. And when it happened, they celebrated. They, they jumped for joy. To see this happen, it was a great triumph. IT'S INCONEIVABLE TO ME AND TO YOU, BUT DAVID, THIS IS WHAT we have to understand as a country. We're not dealing with the kind of things in any war we've ever fought before. Because we've never dealt with these kind of hateful, to the core, EVIL PEOPLE."

'Clueless' US Intel Report on 'Russian Hack' Becomes a 'Laughingstock'

The report put certain US officials in a "trap of their own promises" because initially they promised to provide evidence to the allegations, in order to convince the establishment and public, according to Oleg Demidov, a cybersecurity specialist and expert at the PIR-Center think-tank.

"This goal was not achieved. Without the data from the classified version, the report is clueless. Of course, it quickly became a laughingstock. The gauntlet of criticism was run on this document," Demidov told RIA Novosti.

"Readers pay our bills more than they ever have. We have to listen to them."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of a sudden there is a flood of articles/stories in the Corporate Media about how they have to get back to doing real journalism, etc. It feels like a PR campaign and little else. The Corporate Media has cratered their own credibility; audiences are abandoning them for the Independent Media, and all the Corporate Media can do is promise they will do better if the readers and viewers will just give them one more chance!

But I seriously doubt anything will change. Corporate Media is trapped by their business model, which is being highly paid to be very convincing liars! Corporate Media is under the control of Corporations and the government. They can't do real journalism ever again; their masters will not allow it. And the public, knowing they have been made total fools of by the Corporate Media, are not in a forgiving mood!

Screaming Protesters Kicked Out Of Sessions' Hearing: "You Can't Arrest Me, I'm White"

With opening comments barely underway, several protesters have already been escorted out of Senator Jeff Sessions' confirmation hearing.

The first interruption came from these lovely gentemen who, dressed in KKK garb, shouted "White people don't get arrested...white people own this country" as they were quickly escorted by police off the premises.

"You can't arrest me, I'm white. White people don't get arrested. What do we have to do, wait for the inauguration?"

I hereby nominate these people for the Darwin Award in 'Useful Idiocy'!

NATO Report Blames Russia for Populism Worldwide

A new report from NATO is following a narrative trend which began in the US and has since spread across Western Europe, accusing Russia of being to blame for the rise of populism worldwide, as an effort to undermine NATO and the European Union.

This fits into the hysteria surrounding “fake news” in recent months, with the idea that Russia is to blame for the rise in alternative media outlets which are not as supportive of the idea of globalism. The “anti-globalism” idea positioned the defeat of Hillary Clinton in the US election as the fall of Western liberalism, putative a long-standing Russian priority.

Experts, of course, will note the rise of Euroskepticism across EU nations is largely concurrent with serious policy disputes within the EU itself, and that a simpler explanation than a far-reaching Russian plot is simply that many EU citizens don’t see the union as the panacea it was initially sold to them as.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"When in doubt, and pathologically incapable of taking any responsibility whatsoever for our fault in the public perception of NATO and the EU, BLAME RUSSIA, DAMMIT!!" - Official NATO souse.

US Imposes New Sanctions on Russia

Continuing what may ultimately be a very brief flurry of anti-Russia sanctions, the Obama Administration today announced a new round of sanctions against 5 Russian officials. Administration officials say that technically these are unrelated to allegations of Russian “hacking” of the election, though the timing makes it clear this is part of ongoing “retaliation.”

With President-elect Donald Trump taking office in a week and a half, these moves may not last long, with Trump aide Kellyanne Conway saying that Trump could well “reconsider” any sanctions imposed by the administration in the name of proportionality.

Trump has also suggested he’d be looking to roll back some of these moves, and that was a big reason why Russia did not launch any retaliatory diplomatic action after the Obama Administration expelled 35 of their diplomats and seized a pair of their compounds, with Russian officials saying they expect Trump to change course when he gets into office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have several words with which to characterise these sanctions; churlish, childish, petulant, and completely fact-devoid, much as was the US accusing Russia of "annexing Crimea", while the US government blithely played the regime-change game in Kiev.

I have a very strong sense that after Trump is inaugurated, things will change for the better, in terms of US relations with Russia, and better US/Russian relations is not a bad thing at all.

ISIS, AL-QAEDA AND THE U.S. AIRFORCE WAGE WAR ON SYRIA'S PUBLIC UTILITIES

There are doubts that the U.S. was only watching from afar. The beginning and growth of ISIS was financed by U.S. Gulf "allies" which are subordinated to U.S. wishes. When the Obama administration had to start bombing ISIS after it killed a U.S. journalist the few bombs its airforce dropped were hitting an "ISIS fighting position" or an "ISIS excavator". That wasn't a serious campaign. Meanwhile thousands of Turkish tanker trucks were waiting in the deserts to load oil from ISIS controlled wells to sell it to Turkey. Only after the Russian President Putin showed satellite pictures of those huge truck columns to his colleagues at a G20 meeting did the U.S. start to attack this major source of ISIS finances.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported by zerohedge.com in January of last year:

ISIS: The 'Enemy' The US Created, Armed, & Funded

And as for the Takfiri forces; as reported at iranreview.org in 2014:

Throughout the crisis in Syria, the terrorist Takfiri groups enjoyed full political support of the United States as well as direct military, financial and logistical support from countries that are considered as US allies in the region. In addition, the Zionist regime of Israel provided Takfiri forces with direct training, consultation, and medical services, in such areas as the occupied Golan Heights, Quneitra, Utaiba, and other regions along its border with Syria and even inside Israel.

This is not just a US-sponsored fight to regime change Damascus; it is a fight against the Syrian people themselves, and their ability to control their own destiny.

The government of this country I care deeply about, my United States of America, has mutated into a war-crimes centric monster; and the hideous irony here is that it has accelerated rapidly on this path under the leadership of our Nobel Peace Prize-winning President, President Barak Obama.

And as long as I have breath, as a Christian pacifist activist, I have the moral obligation to bear peaceful, logical witness to the great evils my government continues to perpetrate, with utter impunity, and zero regard for the lives of the people against whom these war crimes have been committed.

Israeli cable admits that, like the US, they had no evidence of Iraq WMDs

In a diplomatic cable from Tel Aviv, dated April 6, 2005 (05TELAVIV2125_a), Israeli officials professed that they had ‘no evidence’ of Saddam Hussein developing WMDs, and that the Iraqi regime ‘would never support al-Qaeda’ or ‘jihad’.

Israel, generally considered to be one of the US’ closest military allies in the ‘war against terror’, therefore secretly maintained an intelligence-rooted position that directly contradicted the stated assertions of the War in Iraq – that Hussein harbored members of Al-Qaedi and was in possession of WMDs.

Judge: San Francisco Can’t Be Sued Over Death By Immigrant

San Francisco cannot be held liable for a slaying by a man who was in the country illegally and had been released by sheriff’s officials despite a request by immigration officials to keep him behind bars, a federal judge said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero dismissed wrongful death claims filed by the family of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle against the city and Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi. The judge, however, allowed a negligence claim against the federal government to move forward.

Steinle’s shooting death thrust San Francisco into the national debate over immigration

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm sorry, this woman got assassinated by an illegal alien; and because of the city's "sanctuary policy" it cannot be held liable for her death?!?

As a native San Franciscan myself, I find this ruling morally reprehensible and appalling, and it definitely needs to be "kicked upstairs" to a judicial body with better horse-sense than that of a city which takes zero responsibility for a policy which got this woman murdered by an illegal alien; in fact, this case needs to go all the way to the Supreme Court.

We, as a country, need to take a good look at the many problems created by the "sanctuary city" policy, and chawk up the kinds of incidents like this it has created; unfortunately, by adopting such policies, cities make themselves a target-rich environment for the bad guys out there.

And with California's draconian gun laws, the woman was utterly helpless against her killer.

Revealed: FBI RETURNED Ft. Lauderdale shooter's gun a month before airport attack after he reported himself because he thought the CIA was making him fight for ISIS

It has also been revealed that FBI agents took Santiago's gun off him when he went into an Alaska field office in November to say the government was controlling his mind.

But it was returned to him just a month later, and law enforcement will not reveal why. Sources told CNN he used the same weapon in the airport attack.

The alleged shooter was also left off all the no-fly lists and was allowed to check in his gun before Friday's attack.

WATCH: PROTESTERS IN MEXICO KICK FEDS OUT OF TOWN, STORM BUILDINGS AS GOVT RAISES GAS PRICES

Hundreds have been arrested, and at least 3 people have been killed after several days of intense protests and riots in Mexico, that started as the result of a 20% gas price increase.

It was reported that some of the deaths resulted from protesters being shot by police with live ammunition.

“To deter the disturbances, the officers used tear gas, but the protesters did not withdraw and continued their aggressions, (and) gunfire was heard at the scene,” the Mexican government admitted in a statement.

President Enrique Pena Nieto is unwavering by the protests, and has promised to follow through with the price increase, explaining that previous subsidies enacted by the government have kept the price of gas artificially low.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Heard anything about this from the corporate presstitutes the last couple of days, even with the US's large complement of people with Hispanic and Mexican roots, to whom such news would be very important?!?

Thought not.

CNN IS NOW LEAST TRUSTED NEWS NETWORK AMONG VIEWERS

A recent poll of cable news network viewers found that CNN’s regular audience is far more skeptical of the political news they receive than Fox News fans.

In the poll published Wednesday by Rasmussen Reports, 1,000 likely voters were asked to describe their media viewing habits. Seventy-five percent said they watch at least some form of cable news each week, with 42 percent saying they most frequently watch Fox News, 35 percent usually choosing CNN, and 19 percent favoring MSNBC.

An even 50 percent of frequent Fox News viewers agreed with a followup question, “Do you trust the political news you are getting?” By comparison, 43 percent of frequent MSNBC viewers and just 33 percent of those who mostly watch CNN said they trust their political news.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Clinton News Network has earned this lack of trust, by continually and faithfully regurgitating everything the US government tells it to, in order to support its agendas.

What they do cannot ever be construed as critical, intelligent analysis, which gives people even the semblance of the truth; it is grade A, bovine excrement propaganda, fronted by some very pretty, and very handsome, faces.

What the article conveniently chose not to mention is that people are coming to the independent media on-line, to resources like WRH, with ever greater frequency, and avoiding corporate news as though it were the plague, because of the corporate presstitutes' longstanding history of lying to the American people.

And after the lies of 9/11, and Bush's lie that "Saddam has weapons of mass destruction", stated by the White House, and obediently regurgitated by the corporate whorespondents, I cannot believe them either, ever again.

NATIONAL POLICE UNION PRESIDENT SAYS ASSET FORFEITURE ABUSE IS A 'FAKE ISSUE' GENERATED BY THE MEDIA

Chuck Canterbury, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, has been given an editorial megaphone over at the Daily Caller. Canterbury's using this platform to defend the pretty much indefensible: civil asset forfeiture.

Colloquially known as "cops going shopping for things they want," asset forfeiture supposedly is used to take funds and property away from criminal organizations. In reality, it's become an easy way for law enforcement to take the property of others without having to put much effort into justifying the seizures. In most states, convictions are not required, meaning supposed criminal suspects are free to go… but their property isn't.

Canterbury, who previously aired his grievances nationally over director Quentin Tarantino's participation in an anti-police brutality rally, opens up this piece by trying to equate factual reporting with current hot button topic "fake news."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Chuck Canterbury; civil forfeiture, visited upon totally innocent people, rather than the criminals for whom it was intended, is criminal in the extreme.

The media is not responsible for this, but is morally obliged, if those at the top of its corporate food chain have any moral responsibility whatsoever, to report it, whenever it is a miscarriage of justice, rather than the application of justice itself.

And if this reporting of real news makes you morally uncomfortable, Mr. Canterbury, congratulations; you may still have some approximation of a conscience which has not yet been murdered outright!!

Does Trump Now Accept The Phony Russian Hacking Claim?

By Stephen Lendman
1-9-17
Since his Friday intelligence briefing, he hasn’t refuted his earlier assessment, debunking the notion. I check his tweets daily to see what he’s saying.

No Russian hacking occurred. No evidence proves it. Yet on Fox News Sunday, his incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said otherwise, accepting the fake news report as factual.

Was he speaking for himself alone? Or was he also stating what Trump now believes? The president-elect hasn’t said either way since Friday so it’s unknown.

I tweeted him a number of times, this morning, saying: Hopefully you don't now buy the Russian hacking fake news story. Information was leaked, not hacked, Russia uninvolved.

Is That All There Is? Intel Community Releases Its Russia ‘Hacking’ Report

The much-anticipated Intelligence Community report backing up its claims that the Russians hacked the US elections in November has just been released. Titled “Declassified Intelligence Community Assessment of Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections,” the report is long on speculation and short on any evidence for the claims it was supposed to prove. It even came with a warning label stating that though the conclusions are reached with “high confidence,” that “does not imply that the assessment is a fact or a certainty; such judgments may be wrong.” We who lived through the 2002 “high confidence” in Iraqi WMDs remember this possibility well.

The CIA’s message to Trump is clear: Get in line with our agenda, or we are going to mess you over.

Fort Worth, TX Cop William Martin Given 'Ten Day Vacation' For Attacking Black Family In Viral Video- Lawyer Speaks Out

As any reasonable person can see in the original video, clearly this cop is an unhinged mental-case, a dangerous violent maniac, and this is a genuinely gross miscarriage of justice.

Following Jerusalem Attack, Israel Seeks Detention Without Trial of Suspected ISIS Supporters

The security cabinet decided Sunday to use administrative detention orders, or detention without trial, against suspects who identify with the Islamic State group. The measure was at a meeting of the security cabinet following an attack in Jerusalem that claimed the lives of four soldiers, a senior official said.

Security sources told the ministers at the meeting that the measures were already taken in response to the attack. The measures included a blockade of the Palestinian Jabal Mukkaber neighborhood, adjacent to the site of the attack, from which the attacker is said to have driven the truck.
The security cabinet also resolved to demolish the home of the driver of the truck as soon as possible and to reject requests by the attacker's family for family reunification with relatives who live in the territories. It was also decided that the body of the attacker would not be returned to his family.

Webmaster's Commentary:

First week of 2017: Israel demolishes homes of 151 Palestinians, almost four times last year's average

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s promise to settlers from the unauthorized outpost of Amona to enforce the law "equally" by demolishing the homes of Arabs is being strictly fulfilled.

The number of Palestinian buildings demolished in the first week of January 2017 is almost four times as high as the weekly average for 2016: 20 structures. In 2015, the average was 10 structures a week, according to the records of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In Area C, which is under full Israeli civil and security control, between Monday and Thursday the Israel Defense Forces’ Civil Administration demolished 65 structures in Palestinian communities, and seven rainwater cisterns. The Jerusalem Municipality demolished another two homes in East Jerusalem. Some 151 people, including 90 children, lived in the buildings that were demolished.

Apparently, Israel has more than 50 shades of serial genocide and slow death for Palestinians, and this is one of them.

Israeli witness in Gaza: No water, no electricity and children dying unnecessarily

Is that part of the procedure, this questioning?

“Yes. A request is submitted to the Israeli side and a summons is received to appear at a specific time for questioning.”

How does Hamas allow this?

“Hamas warns people not to provide any information. There are even signs on the Palestinian side of border crossings warning people going for questioning not to divulge anything, telling them to remember that the homeland is more precious than anything else.”

Doesn’t it make patients give up?

“Many people do. They are simply afraid. Even those who aren’t afraid aren’t guaranteed that they’ll get a permit. It can take months. Sometimes there is no reply at all. Many people die while waiting. There is also the issue of blackmail.”

Meaning what?

“Their travel permit is granted only on condition that they collaborate – information in exchange for an entry permit.”

You’re saying that the Shin Bet blackmails these patients? Can you prove that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These activities against sick Palestinians constitutes slow motion genocide, courtesy of the Israeli government; and collective punishment, i.e., not allowing people medical treatment they desperately need, constitutes a war crime.

End All the Craziness Over North Korea

North Korea has ‘entered the final stage of preparation for the test launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile(ICBM)’. So crowed North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong-un, in his New Year’s Day message aimed at tough-talking US president-elect, Donald Trump.

But there no need to squander trillions on new anti-missile defenses based in Alaska and California that may not work as advertised. North Korea’s missiles are designed to deter a US attack.

The alleged dire threat from North Korea can be better and more swiftly resolved by intelligent diplomacy and some calm thinking.

North Korea is a small, backwards, dirt poor nation of 25 million that has been under a fierce US-imposed sanctions regime for over half a century. Call it a North Asian Cuba. Without modest economic and military help from China, North Korea would likely have collapsed long ago. It remains under constant siege by the US and allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President-Elect Trump; in order to get negotiations going, the US government will have to enlist the assistance of China (remember; that same China Obama dissed while a guest of the Chinese at the G-20 last year G20: Obama warns Beijing against South China Sea aggression)

That may well take some time and a lot of finesse, but a working relationship with China regarding North Korea will be critical to get this going.

What we need here are trade guarantees, coupled with a firm quid pro quo that to get this peace treaty to replace the existing armistice, North Korea must end its nuclear weapons program, period, end of discussion.

It can be done, with enough will and hard-won, intelligent, moral negotiations.

The last thing in the world this country needs, President-Elect Trump, is a shooting war with China. Please have one of your military advisors talk to you about recent strides in weaponry, ships, and fighter jets the Chinese have made over the last decade, then ask yourself; can the current standoff with North Korea be overcome by any other means than war?!?

Thankfully, sir, the short answer, is yes.

NATO Announces Another Deployment of Ground Troops to Afghanistan

Just two days after announcing that US Marines are being sent back into Afghanistan’s Helmand Province to try to slow the losses the Afghan military is suffering at the hands of the Taliban there, NATO has now also announced that ground troops, led by Italian forces, will be heading into the Farah Province to try to shore up defenses there as well.

The new “advise and assist” mission is smaller, involving about 200 NATO troops, and officials say that their advisory role makes it comparatively unlikely they will enter direct combat. This is in stark contrast with the Marines in Helmand, who despite being officially “non-combat” are in areas where direct combat is virtually assured.

NATO tried to pass this off as a temporary measure, but as the second in a few days it reflects that NATO claims that their involvement in the ground war ended years ago simply weren’t true, and that the Afghan government is still far from self-sufficient.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the US government and NATO had one brain cell between them which was, in the least bit, rational, they would leave Afghanistan as quickly as it was safe to do so, declare "victory" (which would be hysterical, save for all the blood and money lost) and negotiate with whatever government was left standing for rights to pipeline routes, and its mineral wealth.

But of course, such a strategy would be .....logical.

Unfortunately, apparently, logic, the US government, and NATO are only very loosely aligned, if at all.

There is utterly no military metric by which the invasion - and occupation - of Afghanistan can be measured as a "success", period, end of discussion.

The only "success story" one can point to, if in fact one is a member of the various "alphabet soup" US spook apparatchiks, is the reality that the production of opium poppies has soared under US and NATO occupation.

Opium growth in Afghanistan soars, eradication close to zero – UN

I would strongly suggest that this is not "by accident"; the money earned from this cash crop goes to fund many US agencies' "off the books" operations, where Congress has utterly no oversight.

U.S. ADMITS ISRAEL IS BUILDING PERMANENT APARTHEID REGIME — WEEKS AFTER GIVING IT $38 BILLION

Honest observers on both sides of the conflict have long acknowledged that the prospects for a two-state solution are virtually non-existent: another way of saying that Israel’s status as a permanent apartheid regime is inevitable. Indeed, U.S. intelligence agencies as early as 45 years ago explicitly warned that Israeli occupation would become permanent if it did not end quickly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has, in the 21st century, become a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons, which means that a true and just peace in the Middle East can no longer be achieved.

The US government has consistently enabled this behaviour.

The engineering of the locations of settlers' compounds has been deliberately created to make a contiguous Palestinian state completely impossible.

All Palestinians can expect now is more serial genocide, coupled with robust expulsions from homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, and the seizing of more Palestinian lands.

For all the Syrian refugees the US government has admitted into this country, there should have been a robust program to entitle Palestinians to come to the US; because the US and Israeli government have, in concert, created a situation in which the Palestinians will have no home anymore, whatsoever.

CIA Bases Congressional Russian Hacking Report on Possibilities, Not Truth

Intelligence in the US is becoming even more emphatic about the Russian threat to elections, claiming that Russians will start to disrupt the elections of other countries like they are disrupting American ones.

The trouble with this is that intel agencies, specifically the CIA, have not yet proven that Russia has done what the CIA claims it has done.

On Friday, it claimed that Russia had attacked the US with specific hacks. But at least one top official knowledegable about hacking pointed out that using such eminently traceable hacks was unlike the Russians. The entire report was false, he claimed. The Russians wouldn’t have use such easily detected means to accomplish a hacking. If they’d actually done it, they be subtle not obvious.

Blogger is asked to delete info on Oregon refuge occupation informants

Federal prosecutors want a judge to order a Northern California man to remove all information from his website about confidential informants involved in the takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon last winter.

In court filings Friday, prosecutors said the information posted by Gary Hunt, 70, was turned over to defense attorneys in the case pursuant to a protective order that barred it from being shared with outside parties, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. Hunt has been involved in Operation Mutual Defense, a network of militias and supporters founded by Ryan Payne, one of the refuge occupation’s organizers.

“Public dissemination of the material produced under this Court’s Protective Order could threaten ongoing investigations and the safety of government confidential human sources, informants or others,” wrote Assistant U.S. Attorney Pamala Holsinger.

Hysterical Dem Tells Congress 'It's Time Mr. Trump's Twitter Sideshow Comes To An End,' Trump 'Unfit To Be President'

57-year-old Jim McGovern was first elected to Congress in 1996, and represents Massachusetts 2nd District. McGovern is a far-far-lefty who supports all the nasty garbage which has infested this country. He went on a hysterical, breathless rant last Thursday, outraged that Trump didn't believe the fictional and completely made up "sixteen intelligence agencies" claims that Russia hacked the presidential election. At this time McGovern's manic speech has only 47 views on YouTube, so in a way I'm getting him much more attention than he deserves, but I thought he deserved to be mocked.

Is That Charitable Donation Going Where You Think It Is?

Even if you're willing to overlook the high salaries and benefits, the lavish offices and the low percentage of dollars raised being spent for actual cancer research...there's something else about the American Cancer Society that really bugs me.

Much valid government and private research has proved that exposure to various chemicals and toxic substances like herbicides, pesticides and food additives can and does cause cancer. However, a look back at who has served on the board of directors at ACS over the past three decades is startling and may help explain why the organization is very hesitant to point fingers at toxic chemicals as being a cause of cancer. In many cases ACS has actually worked against those implicating the chemical industry and has even testified before Congress to that effect. Yes, executives from chemical-related businesses have served on the ACS board.

"The FBI And Others Are Doing An Excellent Job Detecting, Investigating, Preventing, And Prosecuting Terrorist Plots In The Homeland"(!) He mentioned how effectively they keep dangerous loaded weapons out of airports!

If Trump really believes this he has jumped the shark. If Priebus made it up he should be fired.

President-elect Donald Trump acknowledges that Russia was to blame for hacking the Democratic National Committee and Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta, incoming Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said on Sunday.

According to Priebus, "no one is disputing" that Russia is responsible for the leaking of internal emails from the DNC and Clinton campaign officials.

"[Trump] accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia," he said during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," adding that it is possible that Trump will consider sanctions against Russia after taking into account the US intelligence community's recommendations as to what should be done.

Jewish Defense League lends its support to Neo-Nazis planning an armed protest against Jews

ed note–when the Aryan Nations marched here in sleepy, lil’ old Coeur d’Alene, Idaho years ago, the JDL made sure to be here and make its presence known and received national headlines for doing so.
But in this case, they have decided to ‘jine up’ with Andrew Anglin and his ‘movement’ and their plans to march through sleepy, lil’ old Whitefish, Montana with–as Anglin describes it–‘machine guns’…
For those having a difficult time putting the pieces together, what Andrew and his gang–who get near-daily exposure on the JMSM–are planning is to hold a public march through Whitefish, Montana, armed with–again, using Anglin’s own words–‘machine guns’–in the interests of intimidating the town’s Jewish residents as a result of what these same residents recently did in threatening the mother of Robert Spencer, leader of the same ‘alt-right’ that has featured in so much discussion involving Donald Trump.

British Spies Gave Vital Tipoff To US About Alleged Russia Hacking: Report

Roger Stone concocted Pizzagate for Trump?

Hillary Clinton opponents, alt right pundits, conspiracy theorists, and members of the “truther” community alike are all still chasing the apparent Stone-rigged dangling carrot in the form of an elaborate, provocative, and seductive conspiracy theory alleging that members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for president are operating an underground child-trafficking ring from a set of Clinton-connected ma-and-pa businesses in Washington D.C., namely from the non-existent basement of a pizza joint called Comet Ping Pong.

The Pizzagate dirty trick—which alleges that Clinton campaigners John and Tony Podesta are the masterminds of the ring, extending to Europe—is based on a conveniently anonymous March 2016 hack of the John Podesta’s emails published on Wikileaks, a suspected CIA/Mossad front. Also convenient was the timing of the publishing of the emails by Wikileaks, on October 7, 2016, just in time for the election. The Pizzagate theory “broke” at the end of October.

Priebus, the former RNC chairman, said Trump understands that Moscow was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations. "He accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia so that’s not the issue" and added that Trump "is not denying that entities in Russia were behind this particular hacking campaign."

THIS IS A COUP: THE HOMELAND SECURITY TAKEOVER OF US ELECTIONS

On Friday, the traditional day of the week for quietly releasing big news that will hopefully be ignored by the public—and also obscured by the Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting—the chief of Homeland Security announced that his office will be taking over US elections.

If you can’t see the coup in progress, you need to keep looking until the message comes through.

Read carefully—ABC News reports. My comments are in brackets:

“Citing increasingly sophisticated cyber bad actors and an election infrastructure that’s ‘vital to our national interests’, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Friday that he’s designating U.S. election systems critical infrastructure…”

[Also known as: “we’re taking over.”]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing of this announcement by Mr. Johnson intrigues me; why would he make that announcement now, understanding full well that his agency will be headed by a Trump appointee, and many of the people he currently supervises will be gone right after the transition to a Trump presidency?

How he believes that elements of the DNC will still be in control of much of the agency's infrastructure, after Trump is inaugurated, is more than a little curious.

Is this a desperate, last-ditch effort to overturn the election results in the last two weeks of the Obama administration, before Trump's inauguration?

Israel apology after plot against UK politicians

The Israeli embassy has apologised to UK deputy foreign secretary Sir Alan Duncan for comments made by one of its staff members on plans "to take [him] down" due to his criticism of Israel's settlement activity in the occupied West Bank.

The comments, made by a senior political officer at the Israeli embassy Shai Masot, were secretly captured on film during a six-month undercover operation by Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit, which reveals plots by the Israeli diplomat and a British civil servant to destroy the careers of senior politicians.

In a conversation with Maria Strizzolo, who was then chief of staff to MP Robert Halfon, the deputy chairman of the ruling Conservative Party, Masot asked her if he could give her some names of MPs he would suggest she "take down".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is precisely how the Israeli Governmental Cartel thinks and operates.

And God bless Al Jazeera for having caught this conversation on film!

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I would love to visit Jerusalem one day; unfortunately, however, because I have posted articles on this blog which have been more than a little critical of Israel's treatment of Palestinians, I would either be violently interrogated at Ben-Gurion airport, then refused entry, or assassinated outright if I got through airport security.

And to American Christian Zionists, who believe that they must blindly support everything Israel does (including serial genocide against the Palestinians), if you ever understood what most Israelis think of you, you would be wounded to the core of your being.

'We regret the error,' CNN says after paid ex-CIA analyst calls Julian Assange a pedophile

CNN has all but apologized to Julian Assange after Phil Mudd, a paid analyst, called the WikiLeaks founder a pedophile on live TV. The cable news network's statement came after WikiLeaks threatened to sue unless an apology was given or an exposé on a plot against Assange aired.
CNN’s counterterrorism analyst made the reckless on-air statement on Wednesday while discussing the whistleblower site WikiLeaks. Mudd boldly declared that “there's an effort to protect WikiLeaks (and) a pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.”

Mudd was referring to Assange, who is wanted for alleged sexual assault charges in Sweden – but not for anything related to pedophilia. As a result, CNN was forced to effectively apologize for the segment and conceded that “CNN has no evidence to support that assertion."

The tapes of a conversation between John Kerry and the so-called “Syrian Opposition” at the Dutch Mission of the United Nations on September 22 were released on Wednesday.

There are exactly three accusations, all without evidence: that Guccifer, a Romanian taxi driver, is a principal agent of the Russian military intelligence service; and that the Russians provided emails obtained covertly to DCLeaks and to WikiLeaks. All three assertions lack evidentiary support (I am pretty sure the classified version does not support these assertions with credible evidence).

I find the report deficient in five specific ways:

‘Clinton quite effective at discrediting herself, doesn’t need Putin’s help’ - ex CIA analyst

The main goal of the whole “Russian hacking” US election narrative is a propaganda stunt aimed discrediting Trump by claiming that Russia’s Vladimir Putin personally intervened to discredit Hillary Clinton, retired CIA analyst has told RT.

“It’s designed to smear Trump. Because even the language that developed the notion that Vladimir Putin took it upon himself and instructed the intelligence organs in Russia to go out and discredit Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton didn’t need any help being discredited, she was quite effective at it herself,” Larry Johnson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to think I had some small role in discrediting Hillary! But then as Johnson says, she provided a lot of material for us to work with!

Washington Post, NYT, CNN, MSNBC incited kidnapping, torture and scalping of white special needs boy in disgusting racial hate crime… “journo-terrorism” now a clear and present danger to America

Not surprisingly, this “lynching” of a white special needs boy is being almost completely censored by the entire left-wing media that incited it. The dishonest “fakestream” media only reports news that fits their false narratives. Thus, if four white teens had bound, beaten and kidnapped a young black boy, it would be headline news everywhere, alongside nationwide riots in every major city.

Hall of mirrors: the psychology of false flags

False flags are staged events covertly planned and executed by one state or group which, by impersonating another state or group, incriminates the other in a terrible attack. An enemy is thus created where none existed. By pointing to the crime, the aggressor is able to demonize and justify war against the supposed enemy. The agenda is war.

2016: A year of Russian bear-baiting

Lock up your daughters! Batten down the hatches! The Russians are coming! ‘New Hitler’ Vladimir Putin has invaded Ukraine, is threatening the Baltics, and is behind Brexit and the victory of Donald Trump in the US presidential election!
When he’s not bombing hospitals for fun, propping up the ‘evil Assad,’ hacking into Democratic Party emails, or ordering the doping of Russian athletes, the sinister Russian President is orchestrating hooligan attacks on England football fans at the European Football Championships!

Does the blighter ever take a break from acts of villainy?

Well, that was the news in brief for 2016, as brought to you by ‘liberal’ and neocon media outlets in the West.

3 Weird Things About the Ft. Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Yesterday, a shooter who was later identified as Esteban Santiago opened fire in a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida airport with a gun from his checked luggage. Five people were killed, and eight were wounded in the horrifying attack.

Now, I'm not saying this was a set-up, a hoax, or some kind of creepy Manchurian candidate thing, but there is some definite weirdness.

Don your tinfoil and walk through these three points with me.

New Intelligence Report Adds No Evidence Of "Russian Hacking"

Up to today there is no public evidence that Russia hacked the Democratic National Council and/or released DNC material to Wikileaks. After today's new intelligence report (pdf) there is still no such evidence. (One third of the report is dedicated to criticize the Russian government's TV outlet Russia Today for criticizing Hillary Clinton. The RT viewer numbers claimed in the report are evidently false from 2012 and thereby completely irrelevant.) There are rather wild assertions and a lot of conjecture but zero facts that could be accepted as proof.

Emails were leaked, not hacked

The long anticipated Joint Analysis Report issued by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI on Dec. 29 met widespread criticism in the technical community. Worse still, some of the advice it offered led to a very alarmist false alarm about supposed Russian hacking into a Vermont electric power station.

Advertised in advance as providing proof of Russian hacking, the report fell embarrassingly short of that goal. The thin gruel that it did contain was watered down further by the following unusual warning atop page 1: "DISCLAIMER: This report is provided 'as is' for informational purposes only. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) does not provide any warranties of any kind regarding any information contained within."
