Sunday Edition: US infrastructure is falling apart —Exclusive Footage

It’s no secret that America’s infrastructure is in dire need of repairs. Earlier this year, America received her infrastructure report card from the American Society of Civil Engineers’ and received a repulsive D+. The ASCE guesstimates the US would need to spend $4.5 trillion by 2025 on infrastructure. Here’s the breakdown of the report card:

Aviation: D Bridges: C+ Dams: D Drinking Water: D Energy: D+ Hazardous Waste: D+ Inland Waterways: D Levees: D Parks and Recreation: D+ Ports: C+ Rail: B Roads: D Schools: D Solid Waste: C+ Transit: D-  Wastewater: D+

With that being said, I’ve spent the entire weekend inspecting America’s infrastructure at the Port of Baltimore. At some locations, I was given special access to a behind the scenes view of America’s crumbling infrastructure that the public is not allowed to see. The reasons you’re left out of the know is because it destroys the mainstream narrative that everything is awesome. Even Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba Group says, “the US wasted trillions on warfare instead of investing in infrastructure”. In the Sunday Edition, Alastair Williamson is on site at a marine terminal in the Port of Baltimore. He provides an interesting view of America’s deteriorating infrastructure blended with the current shape of the US economy.

Tim Cook, Eric Schmidt, Jeff Bezos Praise Trump Admin After White House Tech Meeting

by Charlie Spiering19 Jun 2017

Some of the top CEO’s of technology companies in America met with Donald Trump at the White House on Monday, praising him for hosting an afternoon summit on important tech issues. “I’m absolutely convinced that during your administration there is going to be a huge explosion of new opportunities because of the platforms that are getting built in our industry,” Schmidt said to Trump after the meeting, as over a dozen CEOs went around the table to make comments after the meeting. Schmidt said that the combination of entrepreneurs, skilled workers, and immigration would provide “huge” growth in the American economy. “It’s going to happen soon during your leadership,” he predicted. Apple CEO Tim Cook said he was pleased that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and his daughter Ivanka Trump were bringing technology companies together in the Trump administration to help streamline government. “The U.S. should have the most modern government in the world, and today it doesn’t,” he said, predicting that the tech innovations made in the Trump administration would pay back immensely in the future. Cook also offered advice to Trump, suggesting that the federal government needs to be more focused on the people, which was not how it currently operated. “The government should be focused on its citizens, and the services of the government should be measured on how pleased the citizens are with receiving its services,” he said. Cook also told Trump that computer coding should be “a requirement” for public schools. “We have a huge deficit in the skills that we need today, vs. the skills that are there,” he said. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos also praised Trump’s administration for forming the tech innovation council, telling Trump that his team could be the “innovation administration.” He advised Trump to use more commercial technologies in government to save taxpayers money. “I think you guys are already headed that way,” he said, adding that he wanted to see more worker re-training and tech skill development. He also urged more awareness of artificial intelligence. “I think it would be impossible to overstate this, is that the United States needs to — in every way at every level — be working on machine learning and artificial intelligence,” he said. “That can be used in every part of government to improve the services that government provides to citizens.” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella also thanked Trump for the opportunity and said he hoped that Trump would continue both government spending on technology and “enlightened immigration” policies that would allow them to stay competitive. Over a dozen tech CEOs attended the meeting and appeared optimistic about what was possible during this administration. Trump appeared open to working with them on issues they cared about, including immigration. “[W]e’re working very diligently with everybody, including Congress, on immigration so that you can get the people you want in your companies,” he said. Peter Thiel — the most high profile venture capitalist in Silicon Valley, who endorsed Trump — praised the president for highlighting the importance of technology. “I think that the tech industry is an industry that is doing well in America and we need to sort of make it do even better,” he said, calling for ongoing government and regulatory support. “I think your administration is off to a terrific start in doing these things.” After Akamai CEO Tom Leighton talked about his company’s effort to secure government websites, Trump quipped back, “The DNC could have used you.” “It’s an important job and as you can imagine, there’s a lot of folks out there doing a lot of bad things,” he replied. A full list of the tech CEOs who attended below:

Ajay Banga, CEO of MasterCard

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon

Zachary Bookman, CEO of OpenGov

Safra Catz, Co-Chief Executive of Oracle

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple

John Doerr, Chairman of Kleiner Perkins

Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware

DNA Replication Has Been Filmed For The First Time, And It's Not What We Expected

"It undermines a great deal of what's in the textbooks."

BEC CREW 19 JUN 2017

Here's proof of how far we've come in science - in a world-first, researchers have recorded up-close footage of a single DNA molecule replicating itself, and it's raising questions about how we assumed the process played out. The real-time footage has revealed that this fundamental part of life incorporates an unexpected amount of 'randomness', and it could force a major rethink into how genetic replication occurs without mutations. "It's a real paradigm shift, and undermines a great deal of what's in the textbooks," says one of the team, Stephen Kowalczykowski from the University of California, Davis. "It's a different way of thinking about replication that raises new questions." The DNA double helix consists of two intertwining strands of genetic material made up of four different bases - guanine, thymine, cytosine, and adenine (G, T, C and A). Replication occurs when an enzyme called helicase unwinds and unzips the double helix into two single strands. A second enzyme called primase attaches a 'primer' to each of these unravelled strands, and a third enzyme called DNA polymerase attaches at this primer, and adds additional bases to form a whole new double helix. You can watch that process in the new footage below: The fact that double helices are formed from two stands running in opposite directions means that one of these strands is known as the 'leading strand', which winds around first, and the other is the 'lagging strand', which follows the leader. The new genetic material that's attached to each one during the replication process is an exact match to what was on its original partner. So as the leading strand detaches, the enzymes add bases that are identical to those on the original lagging stand, and as the lagging strand detaches, we get material that's identical to the original leading strand. Scientists have long assumed that the DNA polymerases on the leading and lagging strands somehow coordinate with each other throughout the replication process, so that one does not get ahead of the other during the unravelling process and cause mutations. But this new footage reveals that there's no coordination at play here at all - somehow, each strand acts independently of the other, and still results in a perfect match each time. The team extracted single DNA molecules from E. coli bacteria, and observed them on a glass slide. They then applied a dye that would stick to a completed double helix, but not a single strand, which means they could follow the progress of one double helix as it formed two new double helices. While bacterial DNA and human DNA are different, they both use the same replication process, so the footage can reveal a lot about what goes on in our own bodies. The team found that on average, the speed at which the two strands replicated was about equal, but throughout the process, there were surprising stops and starts as they acted like two separate entities on their own timelines. Sometimes the lagging strand stopped synthesising, but the leading strand continued to grow. Other times, one strand could start replicating at 10 times its regular speed - and for seemingly no reason. "We've shown that there is no coordination between the strands. They are completely autonomous," Kowalczykowski says. The researchers also found that because of this lack of coordination, the DNA double helix has had to incorporate a 'dead man's switch', which would kick in and stop the helicase from unzipping any further so that the polymerase can catch up. The question now is that if these two strands "function independently" as this footage suggests, how does the unravelling double helix know how to keep things on track and minimise mutations by hitting the brakes or speeding up at the right time? Hopefully that's something more real-time footage like this can help scientists figure out. And it's also an important reminder that while we humans love to assume that nature has a 'plan' or a system, in reality, it's often a whole lot messier. The research has been published in Cell.

Execution by Firing Squad: The Militarized Police State Opens Fire

By John W. Whitehead June 19, 2017

“It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence. Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal Legally owning a gun in America could get you killed by a government agent. While it still technically remains legal to own a firearm in America, possessing one can now get you pulled over, searched, arrested, subjected to all manner of surveillance, treated as a suspect without ever having committed a crime, shot at and killed. This same rule does not apply to government agents, however, who are armed to the hilt and rarely given more than a slap on the wrists for using their weapons to shoot and kill American citizens. According to the Washington Post, “1 in 13 people killed by guns are killed by police.” Just recently, for example, a Minnesota jury acquitted a police officer who shot and killed 32-year-old Philando Castile, a school cafeteria supervisor, during a routine traffic stop merely because Castile disclosed that he had a gun in his possession, for which he had a lawful conceal-and-carry permit. That’s all it took for police to shoot Castile four times as he was reaching for his license and registration. Castile’s girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter witnessed the entire exchange. Earlier this year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled that Florida police will not be held accountable for banging on the wrong door at 1:30 am, failing to identify themselves as police, and then repeatedly shooting and killing the innocent homeowner who answered the door while holding a gun in self-defense. Although 26-year-old Andrew Scott had committed no crime and never fired a single bullet or lifted his firearm against police, he was gunned down by police who were investigating a speeding incident by engaging in a middle-of-the-night “knock and talk” in Scott’s apartment complex. As attorney David French writes for the National Review, “Shooting an innocent man in his own home because he grabs a gun when an unidentified person pounds on his door or barges through it isn’t just an ‘unreasonable search or seizure.’ It’s a direct violation of his clearly established right to keep and bear arms.” Continuing its own disturbing trend of siding with police in cases of excessive use of force, a unanimous United States Supreme Court recently acquitted police who recklessly fired 15 times into a backyard shack in which a homeless couple—Angel and Jennifer Mendez—was sheltering. Angel Mendez suffered numerous gunshot wounds, one of which required the amputation of his right leg below the knee, and his wife Jennifer was shot in the back. Incredibly, the Court ruled that the Los Angeles County police officers’ use of force against the homeless couple was justified as a defensive action, because Angel was allegedly seen holding a BB gun that he used for shooting rats. In yet another case, a Texas homeowner was subjected to a no-knock, SWAT-team style forceful entry and raid based solely on the suspicion that there were legally-owned firearms in his household. Making matters worse, police panicked and opened fire through a solid wood door on the homeowner, who had already gone to bed. In Maryland, a Florida man traveling through the state with his wife and kids was stopped by a police officer and interrogated about the whereabouts of his registered handgun. Despite the man’s insistence that the handgun had been left at home, the officer spent nearly two hours searching through the couple’s car, patting them down along with their children, and having them sit in the back of a patrol car. No weapon was found. In Philadelphia, a 25-year-old man was confronted by police, verbally threatened and arrested for carrying a gun in public, which is legal within the city. When Mark Fiorino attempted to explain his rights under the law to police, police ordered him to get on his knees or else “I am gonna shoot ya.” Fiorino was later released without charges. What these cases add up to is a new paradigm in which legally owning a gun turns you into a target for government sharp-shooters. Ironically, while America continues to debate who or what is responsible for gun violence—the guns, the gun owners, or our violent culture—little has been said about the fact that the greatest perpetrator of violence in American society and around the world is the U.S. government. Government violence is the missing link in the gun control debate. Violence has become the government’s calling card, starting at the top and trickling down, from the more than 80,000 SWAT team raids carried out every year on unsuspecting Americans by heavily armed, black-garbed commandos and the increasingly rapid militarization of local police forces across the country to the drone killings used to target insurgents. The government even exports violence worldwide, with one of this country’s most profitable exports being weapons. Thus, any serious discussion about minimizing the violence in our society needs to address the manner in which the government and its cohorts (the police, the various government agencies that are now armed to the hilt, the military, the defense contractors, etc.) use violence as a means to an end, whether domestically or in matters of foreign policy. You want to reduce gun violence? Start with the government. Except that the government has no intention of scaling back on its weapons. To the contrary, the government’s efforts to militarize and weaponize its own agencies and employees is reaching epic proportions, with federal agencies as varied as the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration placing orders for hundreds of millions of rounds of hollow point bullets. Talk about a double standard. The government’s arsenal of weapons makes the average American’s handgun look like a Tinker Toy. Under the auspices of a military “recycling” program, which allows local police agencies to acquire military-grade weaponry and equipment, more than $4.2 billion worth of equipment has been transferred from the Defense Department to domestic police agencies since 1990. Included among these “gifts” are tank-like, 20-ton Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, tactical gear, and assault rifles. Ironically, while gun critics continue to clamor for bans on military-style assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and armor-piercing bullets, expanded background checks, and tougher gun-trafficking laws, the U.S. military boasts all of these and more, including some weapons the rest of the world doesn’t have. Included in the government’s arsenal are armed, surveillance Reaper drones capable of reading a license plate from over two miles away; an AA12 Atchisson Assault Shotgun that can shoot five 12-gauge shells per second and “can fire up to 9,000 rounds without being cleaned or jamming”; an ADAPTIV invisibility cloak that can make a tank disappear or seemingly reshape it to look like a car; a PHASR rifle capable of blinding and disorienting anyone caught in its sights; a Taser shockwave that can electrocute a crowd of people at the touch of a button; an XM2010 enhanced sniper rifle with built-in sound and flash suppressors that can hit a man-sized target nine out of ten times from over a third of a mile away; and an XM25 “Punisher” grenade launcher that can be programmed to accurately shoot grenades at a target up to 500 meters away. In the hands of government agents, whether they are members of the military, law enforcement or some other government agency, these weapons have become accepted instruments of tyranny, routine parts of America’s day-to-day life, a byproduct of the rapid militarization of law enforcement over the past several decades. This lopsided, top-heavy, authoritarian state of affairs is not the balance of power the founders intended for “we the people.” The Second Amendment, in conjunction with the multitude of prohibitions on government overreach enshrined in the Bill of Rights, was supposed to serve as a clear shackle on the government’s powers. As 20th century libertarian Edmund A. Opitz observed in 1964, “No one can read our Constitution without concluding that the people who wrote it wanted their government severely limited; the words ‘no’ and ‘not’ employed in restraint of government power occur 24 times in the first seven articles of the Constitution and 22 more times in the Bill of Rights.” To founders such as Thomas Jefferson, who viewed the government as a powerful entity that must be bound “down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution,” the right to bear arms was no different from any other right enshrined in the Constitution: it was intended to stand as a bulwark against a police state. Without any one of those freedoms, we are that much more vulnerable to the vagaries of out-of-control policemen, benevolent dictators, genuflecting politicians, and overly ambitious bureaucrats. Writing for Counterpunch, journalist Kevin Carson suggests that prohibiting Americans from owning weapons would be as dangerously ineffective as Prohibition and the War on the Drugs: “[W]hat strict gun laws will do is take the level of police statism, lawlessness and general social pathology up a notch in the same way Prohibition and the Drug War have done. I’d expect a War on Guns to expand the volume of organized crime, and to empower criminal gangs fighting over control over the black market, in exactly the same way Prohibition did in the 1920s and strict drug laws have done since the 1980s. I’d expect it to lead to further erosion of Fourth Amendment protections against search and seizure, further militarization of local police via SWAT teams, and further expansion of the squalid empire of civil forfeiture, perjured jailhouse snitch testimony, entrapment, planted evidence, and plea deal blackmail.” This is exactly what those who drafted the U.S. Constitution feared: that laws and law enforcers would be used as tools by a despotic government to wage war against the citizenry. This phenomenon is what philosopher Abraham Kaplan referred to as the law of the instrument, which essentially says that to a hammer, everything looks like a nail. As I explain in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we the citizenry have become the nails to be hammered by the government’s battalion of laws and law enforcers (its police officers, technicians, bureaucrats, spies, snitches, inspectors, accountants, etc.), and we’re supposed to take the beatings without complaint or reproach. Now don’t get me wrong. I do not sanction violence, nor do I believe that violence should ever be the answer to our problems. As John Lennon warned, “When it gets down to having to use violence, then you are playing the system’s game. The establishment will irritate you—pull your beard, flick your face—to make you fight. Because once they’ve got you violent, then they know how to handle you.” Still there’s something to be said for George Orwell’s view that “that rifle hanging on the wall of the working-class flat or labourer’s cottage is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.” The Second Amendment serves as a check on the political power of the ruling authorities. It represents an implicit warning against governmental encroachments on one’s freedoms, the warning shot over the bow to discourage any unlawful violations of our persons or property. Certainly, dictators in past regimes have understood this principle only too well. As Adolf Hitler noted, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” It should come as no surprise, then, that starting in December 1935, Jews in Germany were prevented from obtaining shooting licenses, because authorities believed that to allow them to do so would “endanger the German population.” In late 1938, special orders were delivered barring Jews from owning firearms, with the punishment for arms possession being 20 years in a concentration camp.

The rest, as they say, is history. Yet it is a history that we should be wary of repeating. WC: 2042

Greenland tsunami "not normal" 4 dead and 39 homes swept to sea as a very rare earthquake rocks the west coast

Sunday, 18 June 2017

Four people are missing after a tsunami hit Greenland's west coast, police have said. The surge of water is also reported to have swept away 11 homes in the village of Nuugaatsiaq. Police chief Bjorn Tegner Bay said he was unable to confirm whether there had been fatalities, according to KNR, Greenland's broadcasting corporation. The authorities believe a magnitude four earthquake caused the tsunami. According to the police chief, it struck off Uummannaq, a small island well above the Arctic Circle. Meteorologist Trine Dahl Jensen told Danish news agency Ritzau that for such an earthquake to hit Greenland was "not normal", as she warned of the risk of aftershocks. Emergency services were initially called at 22:15 local time (00:15 GMT) to reports of major flooding in the village, the Greenland Police's Facebook page said. There were also reports of waves striking two other villages. A helicopter flying over the area reported "big waves" spotted about 24 miles off the coast. A total of 39 people have been evacuated from Nuugaatsiaq. A number of injuries have been reported. http://www.thebigwobble.org/2017/06/greenland-tsunami-not-normal-4-dead-and.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FiLosF+

Clintons, Haiti, Human Trafficking and Psych Warfare on Sexuality

June 15, 2017 by Cathy O'Brien

Have you considered the correlation between the Clinton Foundation, World Vision, and CIA/Jesuit Black Ops in Haiti? Or is that simply semantics for more of the same crimes against humanity perpetrated under the illusion of charity to fund a global domination agenda? My experiences carrying out Black Ops in Haiti under MK Ultra mind control gave me deep insight into the plight of this traumatized nation. Haiti was being used as a testing ground for trauma-based mind control, multi-generational genetic alteration, infestation of AIDs, human trafficking, and an epicenter for CIA cocaine and heroin drug ops. I know from personal experience on a White House/Pentagon level that mind control is used to enforce actions contrary to innate human nature. Mind control’s sliding scale extends to Psychological Warfare, which is a missing piece of the puzzle that brings the Big Picture into focus as to what in the world is really going on with Haiti. Several years ago when I learned of Rep Maxine Waters’ deep Haitian political connections, I turned over vast amounts of detailed testimony to her with renewed hopes and expectations of exposing CIA drug ops and helping the plight of the Haitians. This was not to be the case any more than was Maxine Waters’ handling of Gary Webb’s testimony that inspired the CIA to investigate and clear themselves of drug ops despite over 500,000 documents proving otherwise. This raises questions that demand answers. Bill Clinton’s infamous Mena cocaine operations that I’d been exposed to since the late 1970’s extended internationally to include Haiti and expanded into related criminal activity such as human trafficking. Bill and Hillary’s complicity in crimes against humanity are rooted deeply with absolute power corrupting absolutely. The Clintons are no strangers to charities being used as cover for their criminal operations. Charities like World Vision and various Christian “missions” collecting money under the guise of helping Haitians instead notoriously lined pockets while funding black ops. Churches including the Lord’s Chapel in Brentwood, Tennessee and Hendersonville, Tennessee’s Mormon church are among those “missions” I had experience to know merged with CIA cocaine ops. Like many others, these cult churches sent their mind controlled followers out on “missions” to Haiti as cover for muling cocaine for the CIA. When a Lord’s Chapel mind controlled “missionary” was busted for cocaine he was not aware was in his suitcases, the church let him take the fall akin to Roger Clinton’s case. Prison ministries commenced thereafter, making the church appear compassionate the same way Bill Clinton’s pardon of Roger made it appear he cared. Same game for public appearance, and charities were providing the perfect cover. During my tenure under MK Ultra mind control carrying out White House/Pentagon level black ops for Shadow Government globalists like the Clintons in the 1980’s, AIDs was deliberately introduced into Haiti through World Vision vaccines. Hillary Clinton’s perverse sexual abuse of me (detailed in TRANCE) was predicated on her understanding that I was immune from AIDs as necessary for working Haitian black ops. With Bill Clinton’s cocaine operations well entrenched in Haiti, and Hillary’s accepted knowledge of World Vision’s AIDs operations, questions must be raised as to how this interfaces with the Clinton Foundation’s Haitian operations. Charities have been used for decades to perpetuate CIA/Jesuit black ops since it is known that anyone emotionally donating to charities does not want to face the reality that their well intentioned monies were only used against humanity. Such anticipated natural human reactions are a powerful component of Psychological Warfare. The Psych Warfare impact of AIDs genocide reverberates today, changing the very nature of human sexuality as anticipated. With AIDs impacting heterosexual procreation and pedophilia being sanctioned by Shadow Government globalists in order to heighten suggestibility and confuse gender, human sexuality is in crisis. Understanding why is key to reclaiming our freedom to evolve as a society unhindered by mind control’s agenda. Psych Warfare’s hold on sexuality was deliberately introduced into Global Ed/Common Core. While Bill Clinton claimed the office of President, “Gay Celebration” month was forced into the school system. Transgender bathrooms would have become the norm under Hillary had this plan not been derailed this past election. Why confuse sexuality and inhibit procreation? Why genetically ‘cleanse’ through AIDs? It was my experience under mind control to have overheard much discussion regarding genetic engineering and cloning to replace natural procreation in order to accelerate intellect to keep up with AI (artificial intelligence). It was also my experience that Bush Sr. adhered to Hitler/Himler research that sexually abusing a child would heighten their suggestibility and intelligence in accordance with creating the perfect race. This formula was used on his own son for Presidential placement to ensure the 100 year plan for global domination was ushered in. I was present during his discussion on this with close friend Bill Clinton at the Swiss Villa compound as detailed in TRANCE and ACCESS DENIED. My young, programmed daughter Kelly and I were being perversely used for covert filming/blackmail purposes at this Swiss Villa event. When Bill Clinton stopped Bush’s intent to covertly film him with my daughter, he further stated sexually abusing his child was not necessary when genetics were already in place to perpetuate the New World Order agenda. Regardless, both Bush and Clinton adhered to means of overriding innate free thought soul expression in favor of robotic compliance to their global agenda. Clinton’s denial of incest with Chelsea combined with stopping sex with my daughter, albeit for the cameras, formed my perception that pedophilia was not his personal perversion at that time. Given the reality of the Clintons’ involvement in drug ops and human trafficking, my formed perception is certainly not conclusive. Perpe-traitor’s perversions notoriously extended past bi-sexual to “tri-sexual” -meaning they would ‘try’ anything including children. Additionally, my daughter’s memory and subsequent testimony as to her personal exposure to the Clintons on this and other occasions was deliberately disrupted while she was a political prisoner in custody at Vanderbilt. Reverberations of Psych Warfare that began in Haiti under the guise of charities has permeated our society on many levels for decades, even to the point of altering human sexuality. As more and more truth comes to light in view of Hillary’s defeat, understand that roots of corruption run deep. We-the-people may have plucked the rosebud from the bush this past election, yet we still need to uproot the whole PLANt in order to render the thorns ineffective. Remember that the proverbial road to Hades is paved with good intentions. Rather than contribute to shady charities or rely on governments to act on our behalf, begin personally reaching out to give a hand up to those in need. Dare to care. And Dare to prosecute the Clintons for their complicity in crimes against humanity that have disrupted free thought and altered human evolution. Move beyond their diversionary blame game obstructions and Lock Clinton’s up!!!

Red Alert: Senators Grassley and Feinstein’s Plot to Take Everything You Own-This Is a Real Threat

By Dave Hodges

The Central Banks of Europe are ruining the bank depositor’s wealth in Europe with their insistence on finance based on debt expansion. Traditional currencies have given way to two practices (1) hording cash in anticipation of a fiat currency meltdown, and, (2) the mainstream public’s adoption of cryptocurrencies as a hedge against traditions fiat currency failure. Consider the following from Zerohedge: “Negative interest rates in Europe and fiat demonetization in developing countries are still driving demand for Bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies. Although Bitcoin was initially ridiculed as money for computer nerds and a conduit for illegal activity, investors are beginning to see the potential for this technology to be an integral part of wealth management from the perspective of portfolio diversification.” The same thing is happening inside the United States with the insistence on the Federal Reserve raising interest rates when there is no justification to do so. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are outpacing traditional currencies as a means of investment. However, the Federal Reserve has help on the way. Released Clinton emails reveal that NATO killed Gadaffi because he was installing a gold back currency for Libya. Subsequently, the terrorism of the Central Banks knows no bounds. Consider the following from Global Research: “Hillary’s emails truly are the gifts that keep on giving. While France led the proponents of the UN Security Council Resolution that would create a no-fly zone in Libya, it claimed that its primary concern was the protection of Libyan civilians (considering the current state of affairs alone, one must rethink the authenticity of this concern). As many “conspiracy theorists” will claim, one of the real reasons to go to Libya was Gaddafi’s planned gold dinar.” Death is the fate for those who would defy the edicts of Central Bankers. The United States Part In the Financial Scam Stealing From the World Sen. Grassley and friends (eg Feinstein) has introduced a bill which will make it illegal to store cash and cryptocurrencies without reporting the event(s) to you local bank!

S.1241 – Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017115th Congress (2017-2018) | Get alerts

BILL Sponsor: Sen. Grassley, Chuck [R-IA] (Introduced 05/25/2017)

Committees: Senate – Judiciary

Latest Action: 05/25/2017 Read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. (All Actions)

Tracker: This bill has the status Introduced Here are the steps for Status of Legislation: Introduced

Passed Senate Passed House To President Became Law Mr. Grassley (for himself, Mrs. Feinstein, Mr. Cornyn, and Mr. Whitehouse) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary……” In the act, Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017. a citizen cannot possess cash or cryptocurrencies without reporting, in writing, to their local bank. Also included in the list of prohibited list is includes prepaid mobile phones, electronic currencies and even retail gift vouchers. Failure to comply does not only result in a stiff fine and 10 years in prison, it also involves the confiscation of all of your personal assets under Civilian Asset Forfeiture. In other words, if you store cash of engage in the business of cryptocurrencies, you are being labeled as a terrorist. Here is a breakdown of this heinous bill. Why Would the Government Engage in Such An Action? As the public is running from fiat currencies because of the inevitability of their failure and subsequent loss of personal wealth, the government seeks make the Federal Reserve reign supreme and trap you inside their corrupt and failed system. There is, however, another more sinister motive. When the system is deliberately collapsed as is now happening, the elite want no financial survivors. I have written on several occasions that your 401K, retirements and pensions will be gone. The only source of wealth left is stored cash, cryptocurrencies and gold. The elite will soon be going after your gold just as Franklin Roosevelt did during the 1930’s when it became illegal to possess gold. Does this make sense, now, as to why the elite are buying up as much gold as possible? Make no mistake about it, there will be no financial survivors from the middle class after the collapse. The Central Banks will own all real estate, precious metals and other hard assets. Grassley and Feinstein know that the economy will one day crash. Subsequently, they want no survivors. These rogue Senators are preparing to take everything you own! What is the solution to this economic tyranny? Contact your Representative and your Senator and threaten their re-election. They do not want the light of day on this. Have you seen this in the MSM? Of course not! So, let’s put this bill under our floodlights. The next is nonviolent civil disobedience. Store your wealth covertly and intelligently, but do not submit to this tyranny. Let everyone you know in Iowa about their Senator (Grassley’s) betrayal of the middle class and let the voters take care of business. There is no doubt that this plot is designed to destroy the middle class. We are at war!

'The Most Gruesome Symptoms' Of The Breakdown Of Society Now Manifesting Are A Huge Warning To Americans

- More And More Evidence Emerges 'An Event' That Changes Everything May Happen Soon

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

In this new story over at Zero Hedge they report that the summer of liberal hatred has arrived in America, exemplified most recently by the cowardly shooting at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia, shots fired at President Trump supporters in Indiana, and 'antifa activists' edging ever closer to becoming Islamic terrorists themselves by rallying FOR sharia law during anti-sharia law protests this past weekend. As the ZH story also points out, during one antifa rally, there were reports of masked, black clad antifa members holding high powered rifles and as their story claims, as if this wasn’t enough to convince you that the US is on the cusp of a hot civil war, Wednesday morning’s events, in which a former Bernie Sanders campaign staffer attacked an early morning GOP baseball practice, is all of the confirmation that we need. And while the ever-more-insane left thinks it's perfectly ok to simulate the murder of our sitting president in a despicable 'play', we see that play is simply an extension of the desires of the mainstream media, Hollywood and the 'deep state' who seek to bring down President Trump and complete their destruction of America any way they possibly can. Back on June 14th we warned you in a story on ANP that a civil war 'going hot' in America is the very last thing that America needs and exactly what the globalists (who've long been working to 'take down' America) want to implement martial law and acquire total control. As the ZH story also points out, attacks such as the cowardly shooting in Virginia had been forewarned of by those who've been paying attention to events unfolding every day in America.: This attack came as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to the constant death threats and assassination references made in the media and by celebrities over the last few months since the election. As the Russian collusion narrative falls apart and the spectre of impeachment becomes more unlikely with each day, this last ditch attempt to seize the power back from the hands of the people is to destabilize the United States by fomenting civil unrest, and if necessary a second civil war. Commentators have noticed an eerie similarity between the Democrat-led anti-Trump movement and other George Soros ‘color revolutions’ around the world. This wouldn’t be the first time such color revolutions have been implemented in the United States: Black Lives Matter and the Occupy Movement both were funded by Soros front groups. What’s different this time is that Soros and the Deep State seem to be playing for keeps. Their goal of electing Hillary Clinton and securing the US as the final lynchpin for globalist control was thwarted by the election of President Trump. Their movement is mortally wounded, but has kicked into survival mode and will stop at nothing to continue its stranglehold on us politically, socially, and economically. The events of this past week have proved this, and I’m just wondering if this will be the week that historians look back upon as the week when the American Cultural Cold War shifted gears and became the Second American Civil War. In this new story from former Green Beret Jeremiah Johnson over at SHTFPlan he warns us we've been getting more and more evidence that massive government preparations and stockpiling point to one thing: “An Event Is Going To Happen”. With former presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan recently warning the 'deep state' is planning a coup against Trump and the possibility of civil war breaking out here in America is very real, it's easy to understand why so many people are so concerned, especially considering what we're watching in the financial world in general and the world around us. On ANP, we've long warned that what is happening now in Venezuela should be looked at as a dire warning to America and in this new Zero Hedge story they report a lynching epidemic has broken out in the failed socialist nation. With the 'public safety infrastructure' of Venezuela failing to the point of no return, citizens have taken justice into their own hands and as we see in their story and the 1st video below, the results have been absolutely disastrous. Proving to the world "it is not just the country's economy and political system that are sick, but society itself", experts warn that such an epidemic of lynchings that is happening now in Venezuela is one of the most gruesome symptoms of how far the once jewel of socialism in the southern hemisphere has fallen. They're also another 'sign of the times' we're now living in and as we've said before, "there but for the Amazing Grace of God go we". The OVCS says some 60 people were recorded as killed in lynchings in the first five months of this year alone. Last year there were 126 such killings -- a surge from the 20 reported in the previous year, coinciding with the worsening of political tensions and economic chaos. "Their aim is to kill the person before the police arrive," says Marco Ponce, coordinator of the Venezuelan Social Conflict Observatory (OVCS). "In lynchings, citizens let out their anger in the face of a state that is not defending their right to justice," says Ponce. "They think they are dispensing justice, and they do so with anger, so they go as far as killing the person." Residents blame the breakdown in social order that’s resulted from Venezuela’s worsening economic crisis. In the capital Caracas, the army and police are focused on brutally suppressing the street protests that have become a daily occurrence in recent months. Meanwhile, the dire financial straits of the country’s residents, who are struggling with inflation rates as high as 10,000%, have caused crime to skyrocket. In this new story from Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog he reports that 2017 is setting up to be the worst retail apocalypse in US history with over 300 retailers already filing for bankruptcy. According to Brandon Smith over at Alt Market: “We Are Already In The Midst Of An Economic Collapse, The Data Points Show An Economy In Severe Deterioration, Not Recovery”. With retail stores traditionally the primary engine driving the US economy, Smith tells us why this isn't going to turn out very well if we continue along the same path that we're now moving upon: 102 million working age Americans do not currently have a job. This includes the 95 million Americans not counted by the Bureau of Labor because they assume these people have been unemployed so long they “do not want to work”. Thousands of retail outlet stores, the primary engine of the American economy, are set to close in 2017. Sweeping bankruptcies and downsizing are ravaging the retail sector, and internet retailers are not taking up the slack despite highly publicized growth. In 2016, online retail sales only accounted for 8.1% of all retail sales. These are only a few of the MANY data points that paint a very ugly picture for the US economy. The rest of the world is just as tenuous if not worse. The question is not “when” we will enter collapse; we are already in the midst of an economic collapse. The real question is, when will the uneducated and the biased finally notice? I suspect the only thing that will shock them out of their stupor will be a swift stock market drop, since this is the only factor they seem to pay attention to. This will happen soon enough. In the meantime, anyone who discusses legitimate data and warns of the dangers to come is a “doom and gloomer”. Mark my words, one day this label will be considered a badge of honor. As the people of Venezuela have found out, when there is no food to feed the mouths of starving children, there is no 'peace' nor can there be as millions go hungry with no end to their hunger in sight. As we've previously warned on ANP, food has long been used as a weapon to control the people and what is happening now in Venezuela right now is a perfect example of why we as 'preppers' prepare. While Johnson's story over at SHTFPlan reports the signs we've been watching of government stockpiling and preparation indicates a future event, he also points out that the only thing now missing is 'the crisis'. Yet we can see that possible 'crisis' approaching on multiple different fronts now with the only remaining detail being the 'exact' event. With 'deep state propaganda spewers' the Washington Post claiming a Russian cyber attack that takes down our electrical grid may be on the way, we've warned of a possible massive 'false flag event' ahead, one that could quickly lead to the end of life in America as we know it. And while some still claim that nothing is going to happen and that stories such as this warning of the need to prepare for future disaster are 'fear mongering', we should all be paying to what the government and 'insiders' are doing to get a better feel for what's REALLY going on in the world. From Johnson's story: In the United States, we have seen a great deal of stockpiling by the government agencies and the administration under Obama. Secret warehouses in undisclosed locations have been filled with medical supplies stockpiled across the country in the event of a catastrophe. Cheyenne Mountain as a fallback command and control center has been reopened once again. Extensive networks of tunnels and bunkers have been constructed in, around, and leading to Denver, Colorado with secret deliveries night and day for more than eight years. Billions of rounds of ammunition have been ordered and purchased by the DHS and all of the other alphabet agencies, including the U.S. Postal Service (which does have a role to play in COG and post-war “reconstruction”). Emergency drills, to include catastrophic plague and nuclear war/terrorism have been gamed extensively over the past several years. All of these things…the stockpiling of food and supplies, and the preparations for some massive event point to one thing: an event is (eventually) going to happen. We have the “flash points” around the world, in North Korea, in Syria, in Ukraine, and with the second Cold War that is forming between the U.S. and Russia. Those flash points are artificially created. We have some that are artificially created that can be blamed upon nature, such as the Ebola Virus and the looming disaster of Fukushima. War is the easiest way to bring it all about, plain and simple. Vladimir Putin just recently announced that a nuclear war between Russia and the United States would leave the world destroyed with no winners. Not so: The governments and their elites of politics and business win in the end. Are we about to witness in America a 'game changing' event that changes everything that we know? As we hear in the 2nd video below from Christopher Greene of AMTV, the first shots in the next civil war may have already been fired and events are still seemingly being manipulated to bring about economic travesty in the months ahead. In the final video below, Owen Shroyer from Infowars gives us all the evidence we need to see that the left is responsible for political violence in America, joining the mainstream media in stoking the fires of violence and hatred in this country. And knowing that the long term goal of the globalists has been to bring about the destruction of America by design, while they continue to do everything in their power to destabilize our nation while working to take down President Trump, tells us that 'the event' Johnson is warning of is getting closer by the day. The wise will take notice and prepare. The governments of the world have to keep their citizenry under control until they execute the plan that eliminates the majority of the populations. War is truly the only way to do it in one fell swoop that leaves no one accountable at the end. We’re going to see a “reset” and the most likely thing to accomplish this is war. Historically it is the vehicle for which governments beleaguered by their citizens have been able to bypass controls in the open to subvert democratic processes and inculcate martial law and eventually totalitarian control. We’re halfway through the year, and the situation in the world and domestically has not improved: it has worsened. Many people have documented and filmed FEMA camps and preparations for martial law, the DUMB (Deep Underground Military Bases) projects and tunnel works filmed and reported on by Jesse Ventura and halted by the government, and the systematic grafting of procedures to be followed after an apocalyptic war or event. Such procedures include garnering of all human and natural resources under executive order (President Trump didn’t repeal that one yet, now, did he?), the pervasive surveillance system, and the negation of Posse Comitatus and the control of the United States domestically in the event of a war or collapse of the government. All that is lacking is the crisis. No government truly allows a crisis to go to waste, and all of the crises are contrived or crafted beforehand to allow them to occur. War has always accomplished the resets of all countries and empires in ages past, and this era will be no different, no matter who is at the helm of the ship: especially when the course is purposefully charted right for the rocks. In closing, while tempers are high and emotions are raw across the country, many of us seem to have forgotten how incredibly fortunate that we are to be living in America, despite our nation's many flaws. With food quite literally available to us at our desire, always running water, a well-functioning electrical system and the Amazing Grace of God, we should be thankful rather than hateful and resentful. And with Venezuela giving us a very real look at what happens when societies break down, we hope that Americans choose to work together with one another, despite our differences, to ensure for our own families and future generations that 'we as a people' don't go walking down that same road to ruin that the people of Venezuela are now on.

'We will not hesitate to defend ourselves': US military refuses to be cowed after Russia threatens to target every coalition plane or drone it finds west of the River Euphrates in Syria

The US has said its troops will defend themselves from Russian attack in Syria

That came after Russia said it would target US aircraft west of the Euphrates

Moscow was furious after the US shot down Russia-backed Syrian military plane

That happened Sunday, after the Syrian plane dropped bombs near US allies

Captain Jeff Davis said US and coalition air operations would continue in Syria

Russia claimed to have cut off a flight co-ordination line with the US

Davis said as far as he was concerned, communication continues with Moscow

By James Wilkinson For Dailymail.com and Darren Boyle for MailOnline Published: 08:33 EDT, 19 June 2017 | Updated: 15:30 EDT, 19 June 2017

The US has warned Russia that it will not back down after Moscow threatened to target American and coalition planes and drones in western Syria. That came after the US shot down a Russia-allied Syrian fighter bomber on Sunday afternoon; the plane had dropped bombs near US-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). 'We do not seek conflict with any party in Syria other than ISIS, but we will not hesitate to defend ourselves or our partners if threatened,' Captain Jeff Davis told Fox News. Moscow had said it would target any and all planes and drones flying west of the River Euphrates. It also said a communication line between the countries that was intended to help co-ordinate flights to avoid mid-air collisions had also been shut down. But speaking at a press conference on Monday, Davis said the countries were still speaking to each other about their operations. 'I'm confident that we are still communicating between our operations center and the Russia federation operations center,' he said. 'And I'm also confident that our forces have the capability to take care of themselves.' Department of Defense spokesperson Major Adrian JT Rankine-Galloway promised that coalition aircraft would not be cowed by Russia's threats. He said they would continue conducting 'operations throughout Syria, targeting ISIS forces and providing air support for Coalition partner forces on the ground.' 'As a result of recent encounters involving pro-Syrian Regime and Russian forces, we have taken prudent measures to re-position aircraft over Syria so as to continue targeting ISIS forces while ensuring the safety of our aircrew given known threats in the battlespace,' he said. The area west of the Euphrates - as well as much of the country - is covered by Russia's 'Growler' anti-aircraft defense system, which has a range of 250 miles and can hit targets up to an altitude of 90,000 feet. The system has been deployed on the Latakia Airbase on the Syrian coast; Russia has been providing air cover for Assad's troops since 2015. The tensions developed after a US Navy F/A-18E Super Hornet shot down a Syrian Air Force SU-22 on Sunday afternoon. The SU-22 had dropped bombs near SDF troops and ignored warnings and a 'show of force' prior to being shot down, the Pentagon said. Earlier Monday the Russian defense ministry had condemned the US for shooting down the Syrian plane. 'The shooting down of a Syrian Air Force jet in Syria's airspace is a cynical violation of Syria’s sovereignty,' it said. 'The US' repeated combat operations under the guise of "combating terrorism" against the legitimate armed forces of a UN member-country are a flagrant violation of international law and an actual military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic.' The ministry said it views the incident as Washington's 'deliberate failure to make good on its commitments' under the de-confliction deal. Russia claimed that the US did not use a private communication line between the countries prior to shooting down the bomber, and that the line had been shut down. Davies' comments on Monday mean it is now not clear whether the line is truly cut - and if so how long the shut-down will last. The channel has been shut down before - including in April, when President Trump ordered the bombing of a Syrian air base in response to the use of chemical weapons by President Bashar Al-Assad. If Russia has withdrawn from the line altogether the chances of conflict in the air increase dramatically. The Pentagon admitted it shot down the Syrian jet after it ignored a show of force and a warning against attacking US-supported ground troops near Ja'Din, south of Tabqa on Sunday afternoon. The Syrian jet had dropped bombs near members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) - a US-allied group of Turkish and Kurdish forces working with the US. Russia's deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, on Monday condemned the US for shooting down the SU-22, describing it as an act of aggression. 'This strike has to be seen as a continuation of America's line to disregard the norms of international law,' Ryabkov told journalists in Moscow, according to the TASS state news agency. 'What is this if not an act of aggression?' Pro-Assad forces attacked the SDF at around 4:30 pm, local time, injuring several soldiers and forcing them to leave Ja'Din, the Pentagon says. The attack prompted the SDF to call the Russian army to stop firing and 'de-escalate' the shooting. It also said it would defend itself from Syrian planes if needed. 'Following the Pro-Syrian forces attack, the coalition contacted its Russian counterparts by telephone via an established "de-confliction line" to de-escalate the situation and stop the firing,' said a statement from US-led coalition fighting ISIS, Operation Inherent Resolve. 'At 6:43 p.m., a Syrian regime SU-22 dropped bombs near SDF fighters south of Tabqah and, in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of coalition partnered forces, was immediately shot down by a US F/A-18E Super Hornet.' The Syrian government issued a statement after its military plane was shot down, accusing the United States army of supporting terrorism. 'This flagrant violation shows there is no doubt of the fact that the American stance supports terrorism,' the regime said in its statement. 'It exposes the devious intentions of America in running terrorism and investing in it in order to pursue its Zionist-American project in the region.' The pilot manning the aircraft flying was hit, according to the Syrian army, but his condition is unknown. The United States Army reiterated in its statement that its sole purpose was to defeat ISIS and not to fight with the regime. The statement said: 'The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat. 'The Coalition presence in Syria addresses the imminent threat ISIS in Syria poses globally. 'The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-ISIS operations will not be tolerated.' Both sides have been competing over who will reclaim Raqqa, the ISIS capital. The SDF announced just two weeks ago that it was launching its campaign to capture the town, and only a week later, the Syrian regime also said it was beginning its offense. The US-led coalition as well as the pro-Assad regime have had shoot outs and launched airstrikes against each other in recent weeks. Russian foreign minister Sergey V Lavrov initially appeared to be unaware of the government's decision when speaking in Beijing on Monday. He said that he hoped the US and all other countries involved in the Syrian conflict would 'coordinate their actions,' the New York Times reported. 'We urge everyone to avoid acting unilaterally, to respect the sovereignty of Syria,' he said.

Pastor Warns World Rushing Full Speed Ahead Into War And 'Apocalyptic Chaos' - THIS Is How The Globalists Can Kill Off 270 Million Americans And Billions Around The World

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die June 19, 2017

In this new story just published over at the Express they report Russia has promised to target US-backed troops in Syria after the US downed a Syrian warplane, just the latest evidence we're getting that World War 3 and potential nuclear annihilation for hundreds of millions of Americans and billions of people around the world may still be on the table. While some experts are warning a global conflict that leads to the Apocalypse may be closer now than ever before, according to others, the rise of ISIS and the many recent earthquakes are foreshadowing the coming destruction of our planet. AN 'ARMY of angelic creatures' will SOON be sent to Earth to destroy the world as we know it, according to a global religious group followed by nearly 20 million people. With the Democrats still pushing the Russia-boogeyman theme as far as they can push it, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov just described the shooting as a 'dangerous escalation' and as we hear from Pastor Paul Begley in the final video below, the world now appears to be rushing full speed ahead into war and 'apocalyptic chaos'. With Russia now vowing to shoot down any aircraft West of the Euphrates River as we hear in the first video below, are we marching towards Armageddon or is all of this just 'theater'? While we are not here to judge the most revent event as its clear that no one but those involved know all of the facts, the US described the event as 'self-defense' while Russia's Ryabkov described it as 'an act of aggression' and as a 'support for the terrorists'. Yet, as most Americans now know, the US under Barack Obama armed the 'terrorists' to the teeth in Syria, terrorists who are now killing Americans and people around the world. As Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard stated in her STOP ARMING TERRORISTS bill: “For years, the U.S. government has been supporting armed militant groups working directly with and often under the command of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda in their fight to overthrow the Syrian government. Rather than spending trillions of dollars on regime change wars in the Middle East, we should be focused on defeating terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda, and using our resources to invest in rebuilding our communities here at home,” said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.The fact that American taxpayer dollars are being used to strengthen the very terrorist groups we should be focused on defeating should alarm every Member of Congress and every American. We call on our colleagues and the Administration to join us in passing this legislation.”

Gulf Coast prepares for flooding rains, strong winds, rip currents and high surf

Posted by TW on June 20, 2017

The National Hurricane Center (NHS) is tracking a tropical disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico which is expected to reach the US Gulf Coast late Wednesday or Wednesday night (local time), June 21, 2017, bringing between 101 to 203 mm (4 to 8 inches) of rain, with isolated maximum amounts of 254 mm (10 inches). This dangerous system is expected to further strengthen during the next day or two, and a subtropical or tropical cyclone is likely to form before it reaches the coast of Louisiana. Tropical Storm Warnings and Watches are in effect. The system is expected to bring widespread heavy rain and flooding, gusty winds, rip currents, high surf as well as some coastal flooding. At 09:00 UTC (04:00 CDT) on June 20, the center of 'Potential Tropical Cyclone Three' was located about 490 km (305 miles) SSW of the mouth of the Mississippi River and 555 km (345 miles) SSE of Morgan City, Louisiana. Its maximum sustained winds were 65 km/h (40 mph). The system is moving northwest at a speed of 13 km/h (8 mph) and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday, with a turn toward the north expected Wednesday night or Thursday, June 22. Its estimated minimum central pressure was 1 000 hPa. Upper-level winds are expected to be marginally conducive for some additional development during the next 24 - 48 hours which means a subtropical or tropical cyclone is likely to form during that time (80%). On the current forecast track, this system is expected to be near the Louisiana coast late Wednesday or Wednesday, night. The disturbance is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 101 to 203 mm (4 to 8 inches) with isolated maximum amounts of 254 mm (10 inches) over southeastern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and the Florida Panhandle through Thursday morning. Rainfall amounts of 51 - 101 mm (2 to 4 inches) with isolated maximum amounts of 152 mm (6 inches) can be expected farther west across southwest Louisiana into southeast Texas through Thursday morning. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Cameron, Louisiana to Intracoastal City. Tropical storm conditions are expected to first reach this area by Tuesday afternoon (local time). A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for West of Cameron to High Island. Tropical storm conditions are expected to reach this area on Wednesday. Inundations of 30 cm - 90 cm (1 to 3 feet) are possible along the coast in the Tropical Storm Warning area. A tornado or two is possible this afternoon and tonight from south-central Louisiana to the western Florida Panhandle. Interests elsewhere along the US Gulf Coast from the central Texas coast to the western Florida Panhandle should monitor the progress of this system, NHC said. Update 18:50 UTC, June 20Potential Tropical Cyclone Three has acquired a well-defined center today and at 18:00 UTC it officially became Cindy, the third named tropical cyclone of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. Heavy rain produced by this system is spreading across much of the central Gulf Coast. Cindy is expected to approach the coast of southwest Louisiana late Wednesday or Wednesday night (local time), June 21, and move inland over western Louisiana and eastern Texas on Thursday, June 22, 2017.

Too hot to fly: Record setting heatwave to crush Las Vegas and Phoenix with temperatures reaching 120F as flights are grounded and people are warned of major health issues

Weather forecast calls for a high of 120 degrees on Tuesday in Phoenix, as Las Vegas will reach 117 degrees

American Airlines has already canceled 38 flights for Tuesday out of the Sky Harbor International Airport

Extreme heat creates changes in the air density that make it harder for airplanes to take off as pilots will have to use more thrust

Airlines respond to extreme temperatures by imposing weight restrictions like carrying less cargo and fuel

The airlines will work with aircraft manufacturers and air traffic controllers to make the decision on whether to delay or cancel flights in extreme heat conditions

On June 26, 1990, an all-time record of 122 degrees was set in the city and some airlines stopped taking off and landing for part of the day at Sky Harbor

Health officials are also warning people to stay hydrated and indoors during the heatwave

Last year, Maricopa County had 130 heat-related deaths in 2016 - the highest number in more than a decade

The record setting heatwave is expected to crush southwestern cities like Las Vegas and Phoenix as it could cause major health issues with temperatures so hot that people are being warned flights could be grounded. American Airlines has already grounded 38 flights at the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix for Tuesday, and they are warning passengers that more may be cancelled as the temperature is expected to soar to 120 degrees. The airline is letting Phoenix passengers scheduled to fly during the peak heat Monday through Wednesday to change their flights without a fee. The forecast calls for a high of 118 degrees on Monday and 120 degrees on Tuesday in Phoenix. Las Vegas is expected to reach 117 degrees, but airport officials told DailyMail.com they have not been made aware of any cancellations due to the weather as of Monday afternoon. The heat will have the biggest impact on smaller regional jets flying out of Phoenix. Extreme heat creates changes in the air density that make it harder for airplanes to take off. Airlines respond by imposing weight restrictions, such as carrying less cargo and fuel. American Airlines pilot Shane Coffey also said that the extreme heat causes some pilots to have to use more thrust or impose weight restrictions such as flying with less cargo. Air density on a 90-degree day in Denver at more than 5,000 feet elevation is similar to a 120-degree day in Phoenix at 1,100 feet above sea level, he said. David R. Harwell, a spokesman for the City of Phoenix Aviation Department, told DailyMail.com that the runways at the airport are able to accommodate planes taking off in hot weather. However, Harwell said it's ultimately up to the airline on whether flights will be grounded due to hot temperatures outside. A spokesperson for Southwest Airlines, which has a hub in Phoenix, told DailyMail.com that they don't have any cancellations as of Monday related to the heat in the city. The airliner does not charge change fees to customers who would like to alter their travel schedule. The maximum operating temperature for each aircraft type is based on manufacturer data: Airbus - 127 degrees, Boeing - 126 degrees and Bombardier CRJ regional aircraft - 118 degrees, according to a statement from American Airlines obtained by DailyMail.com. 'The heat is expected to impact some of our regional flights, operated by Mesa Airlines and SkyWest Airlines, especially on Tuesday, June 20,' the statement reads. 'American Eagle (our regional flights), operated by Mesa and SkyWest, operate the CRJ aircraft to/from PHX. On average, American Eagle has 90 departures and 90 arrivals daily.' Due to the extreme heat, American Airlines has canceled 20 regional flights for Tuesday due to the CRJ aircraft's maximum operating temperature being at 118 degrees. Harwell said that the Sky Harbor airport is 'well prepared for Arizona summers'. Airport employees are being asked to take frequent breaks and to stay hydrated. They've also taken extra measures to provide air-conditioned trailers on the airfield where maintenance works can take breaks and also pump air conditioning into underground manholes for airfield electrical workers. The punishing heat wave that includes a forecast of 120 degrees in Phoenix is a temperature not seen in the desert city in more than 20 years. On June 26, 1990, an all-time record of 122 degrees was set in the city. On that day some airlines stopped taking off and landing for part of the day at Sky Harbor. Harwell said that back then they did not have airliner performance charts for a temperature that high. Plus, the runway at Sky Harbor at the time was made from asphalt, which started to become soft and melt. But since then, most of the airlines that serve Sky Harbor have updated their airliner performance charts with new data that goes up to the 122 degree-plus range. In addition, the runway is now made of concrete instead of asphalt. The airlines will work with aircraft manufacturers and air traffic controllers to make the decision on whether to delay or ground flights in extreme heat conditions.

Hillary Clinton Told FBI’s Robert Mueller To Deliver Uranium To Russians In 2009 “Secret Tarmac Meeting”

Written by: Michael DePinto Published on: June 20, 2017 For all the talk about Trump colluding with the Russians, something that has now been thoroughly discredited, many have forgotten that Russian collusion has indeed been going on. Only it’s been done by the Clintons. And a new WikiLeaks cable shows that in addition to the ‘Uranium One’ deal that resulted in Russian control of 20% of our uranium and millions flowing to the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton in her capacity as Secretary of State, has also conducted similar under the table deals, and guess who else was involved? That’s right; special counsel Robert Mueller. You can’t even make this stuff up! In the following video, Today’s Yellow Snow (formerly Right Wing News) looks at the details of the leaked cable, which involved Clinton’s secret directive to then-FBI Director Robert Mueller to discreetly return confiscated highly enriched uranium to the Russians. The uranium had been confiscated in a nuclear smuggling sting operation in Georgia. Interestingly, the handover between Mueller and the Russians happened on an airport tarmac; does this sound familiar to anyone? Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton facilitated the transfer a highly enriched uranium (HEU) previously confiscated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) during a 2006 “nuclear smuggling sting operation involving one Russian national and several Georgian accomplices,” a newly leaked classified cable shows. So-called “background” information was provided in the cable which gave vague details on a 2006 nuclear smuggling sting operation in which the U.S. government took possession of some HEU previously owned by the Russians. It proposed that FBI Director Robert Mueller be the one that personally conduct the transfer a 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources during a secret “plane-side” meeting on a “tarmac” in the early fall of 2009. “We require that the transfer of this material be conducted at the airport, on the tarmac near by the plane, upon arrival of the Director’s aircraft.” The FBI Director was originally scheduled to ‘return’ a sample from the DOE stockpile to the Russians in April but the trip was postponed until September 21. Paragraph number 6 of the leaked cable confirms Dir. Mueller’s Sept. 21 flight to Moscow. “(S/Rel Russia) Action request: Embassy Moscow is requested to alert at the highest appropriate level the Russian Federation that FBI Director Mueller plans to deliver the HEU sample once he arrives to Moscow on September 21. Post is requested to convey information in paragraph 5 with regard to chain of custody, and to request details on Russian Federation’s plan for picking up the material. Embassy is also requested to reconfirm the April 16 understanding from the FSB verbally that we will have no problem with the Russian Ministry of Aviation concerning Mueller’s September 21 flight clearance.” But possibly even more shocking is the fact that the State Department wanted the transfer of the HEU to take place on an “airport tarmac” which is rather reminiscent of the infamous Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton meeting which occurred on a Phoenix, Arizona, tarmac back in June of 2016. Past dealings with the Russians were also mentioned in the cable, signifying that previous deals have taken place.

White House: US wants to 'de-escalate' Syria situation as Russia warns it will treat jets as targets

By Luis Martinez Katherine Faulders Jun 19, 2017, 7:36 PM ET

Asked to respond to the shootdown of a Syrian fighter jet over Syria, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the United States will protect its interests in Syria and will "do what we can" to keep open lines of communication with Russia and Syria. "And so we've gotta do what we can to work with partners and we're going to continue to keep an open line of communication with the Russians," Spicer said at an off-camera press briefing Monday. Spicer added that the U.S. wants to de-escalate the situation in Syria "but will always preserve the right of self-defense." "The escalation of hostilities among all of the factions that are operating there doesn't help anybody," said Spicer. "And so making sure that people understand while we want to de-escalate the situation there, that we have to understand that we will always preserve the right of self-defense." The Russian Defense Ministry earlier blasted the U.S.'s action as a "massive violation of international law" and said it will begin treating U.S.-led coalition jets flying west of the Euphrates River in Syria as targets. The ministry's comments Monday came after a U.S. Navy fighter jet on Sunday shot down a Syrian fighter jet that dropped bombs on rebel forces fighting ISIS in Syria. It was the first time the U.S. has engaged in air-to-air combat in Syria, signaling an escalation of the conflict. It is is also the first time an American aircraft has shot down any other country's plane in air-to-air combat since 1999, when a U.S. Air Force F-16 shot down a Serbian Mig-29 during the Kosovo air campaign. Russia, which is backing the Syrian regime in the civil war, slammed the U.S. action as a violation of Syria's sovereignty. "Repeated combat actions by U.S. aviation under the cover of counterterrorism against lawful armed forces of a country that is a member of the U.N. are a massive violation of international law and de facto a military aggression against the Syrian Arab Republic," the Russian Defense Ministry said. The ministry warned that any U.S.-led coalition aircraft flying west of the Euphrates "will be tracked by the Russian ground and air anti-aircraft defense systems as air targets in the areas where Russian aviation is on combat missions in the Syrian sky." The Syrian jet was downed in an area southwest of the Euphrates River. The U.S.-led coalition conducts missions west of the Euphrates River near Manbij and Al Bab, two towns retaken from ISIS by U.S.-backed rebel forces. Later the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS announced that while it would continue striking at ISIS in Syria, it was re-positioning its aircraft in light of the heightened tensions in the wake of the Syrian jet's shootdown. "As a result of recent encounters involving pro-Syrian regime and Russian forces, we have taken prudent measures to re-position aircraft over Syria so as to continue targeting ISIS forces while ensuring the safety of our aircrew given known threats in the battlespace," said Lt. Colonel Damien Pickart, a spokesman for U.S. Air Forces Central Command. The coalition said in a statement released Sunday after the shootdown that its focus is on fighting ISIS, not the Syrian regime or Russian forces, but that it will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces coming under attack. The downing occurred over the town of Ja'Din, south of Tabqa, which was recently retaken from ISIS by the Syrian Democratic Forces, an umbrella group of Syrian Kurdish and Arab rebel forces supported by the U.S. in the fight against ISIS. The SDF came under attack from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces around 4:30 p.m. local time. A number of SDF fighters were wounded in the assault, and the SDF soon left Ja'Din. Navy F/A-18s from the aircraft carrier USS George H. W. Bush, operating in the eastern Mediterranean, conducted a show of force overhead by firing warning shots at the pro-regime forces that turned back their advance toward the town. "Following the pro-Syrian forces' attack, the coalition contacted its Russian counterparts by telephone via an established deconfliction line to de-escalate the situation and stop the firing," said a statement from Operation Inherent Resolve, the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS. "At 6:43 p.m., a Syrian regime SU-22 dropped bombs near SDF fighters south of Tabqah and, in accordance with rules of engagement and in collective self-defense of coalition partnered forces, was immediately shot down by a U.S. F/A-18E Super Hornet," the statement continued. The Syrian pilot is believed to have ejected from the aircraft, according to a U.S. official. But the Russian Defense Ministry contradicted the coalition's claim that the air-safety hotline was used and noted that there were Russian aircraft in the area when the Syrian plane was shot down. The ministry said it would stop its participation in the deconfliction line, much as it did after U.S. cruise missile strikes in Syria in April. But at the time, U.S. and Russian forces continued to use the hotline despite Russia's announcement. Ja'Din is approximately 2 kilometers north of an established deconfliction area. The U.S.-led coalition in its statement stressed its goals in Syria and said it will defend its partnered forces. "The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat," it said. "The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-ISIS operations will not be tolerated." The downing of the Syrian jet is the latest escalation between the U.S.-led coalition and pro-regime forces in the country. Over the last four weeks, the U.S. has conducted three airstrikes on pro-regime forces backed by Iran that have moved into a de-confliction zone around the town of Tanf in southwestern Syria, where there is a coalition training base for local forces fighting ISIS.

London mosque attack suspect identified as U.K. authorities move to ease tensions

By Danica Kirka And Paisley DoddsThe Associated Press Mon., June 19, 2017

At least nine people were injured after a man plowed his van into a crowd of worshippers outside a mosque on Monday. One man died at the scene, although he was receiving first aid at the time and it wasn’t clear if he died as a result of the attack or from something else. LONDON—British authorities and Islamic leaders moved swiftly to ease concerns in the Muslim community after a man plowed a large van into a crowd of worshippers outside a north London mosque early Monday, injuring at least nine people. British media named the suspect as Darren Osborne, 47-year-old father of four who was living in Cardiff, Wales. British Security Minister Ben Wallace said authorities were aware of rising far-right activity but the suspect was not known to them prior to the attack. Police are treating the incident as a terror attack. One man died at the scene, although he had been receiving first aid at the time and it wasn’t clear if he died as a result of the attack or from something else. The chaos outside the Muslim Welfare House in Finsbury Park follows three Islamist-inspired attacks over the past three months that have triggered a surge in hate crimes around Britain. The Metropolitan Police Service, already stretched by its investigations of the earlier attacks and a highrise apartment fire that is believed to have killed 79 people, immediately announced it was putting extra patrols on the streets to protect the public. Police will assess the security of mosques and provide any additional resources needed ahead of celebrations marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, Prime Minister Theresa May announced. “This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship,” she said in a televised address. “And like all terrorism, in whatever form, it shares the same fundamental goal. It seeks to drive us apart — and to break the precious bonds of solidarity and citizenship that we share in this country. We will not let this happen.” The attack occurred about 12:20 a.m. when a speeding van swerved into worshippers who were giving first aid to a man outside the mosque. That man later died. Police said the attacker who drove the van has been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, including murder and attempted murder. A mob surrounded him and witnesses said the crowd began attacking him. A local imam, Mohammed Mahmoud, said he organized a group of people and shielded the man until police could take him away. “By God’s grace, we were able to protect him from harm,” he said. Toufik Kacimi, chief executive of the Muslim Welfare House, told Sky News the attack clearly targeted Muslims leaving evening prayers during Ramadan. “We have a witness saying that the guy who did what he did, the driver of the van, said ‘I did my bit,’ which means he’s not mentally ill,” Kacimi said. “This person was conscious. He did what he did deliberately to hit and kill as many Muslims as possible, so he is a terrorist.” But Kacimi said there was no need for the community to panic, because police and government officials have been “very, very supportive.” “At this stage, we are calling for calm,” he said. Mayor Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, urged residents to focus on their shared values and to stand together during an unprecedented period in the capital’s history. The attack Monday hits a community already feeling targeted in the fallout from the London Bridge killings and other attacks blamed on Islamic extremists. British security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with official policy, said hate crimes directed at Muslims have increased nearly five-fold in the wake of several attacks in Britain. “While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge, it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect,” Khan said. Vowing “zero tolerance” for hate crimes, Khan declared “we will not allow these terrorists to succeed ... we will stay a strong city.” The attack laid bare the frustrations of Muslims who feel they’ve been unfairly equated with the extremists who carry out atrocities in the name of Islam. Ali Habib, a 23-year-old student, said residents are angry that the mosque attack hasn’t been portrayed in the same light as other attacks across Britain. “There has been an outpouring of sympathy for all for the recent terror attacks but hardly a whisper on this attack,” he said. “People are both scared and angry. Parents are scared to send their children to evening prayers. I don’t think people understand how much these attacks affect all of us.” May attempted to counter that feeling in her speech, declaring that police arrived at the scene within one minute, and that it was classified as a possible terror attack in eight minutes. The prime minister, who has been criticized for failing to show compassion to victims, travelled to the attack site within hours, and met with community and faith leaders. Standing outside her Downing Street office, May sought to convey that Britain and London would not fold in the face of the unprecedented series of horrific events. “Diverse, welcoming, vibrant, compassionate, confident and determined never to give in to hate. These are the values that define this city, “she said. “These are the values that define this country. These are the values that this government will uphold. These are the values that will prevail.’ The attack occurred outside the Muslim Welfare House, a small mosque with about 200 congregants. Nearby, evening prayer services had just concluded at the larger Finsbury Park Mosque, which had been associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9-11 attacks in the United States. After those attacks, the mosque was shut down and reorganized and has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade. The mosque’s current leaders say they support inter-faith dialogue and want to serve the nearby community in north London, which is located near Emirates Stadium, home of the Arsenal soccer club. Britain’s terror alert level is at “severe,” meaning security officials believe an attack is highly likely, and a series of extremist attacks have struck across the country in the last few months. On June 3, Islamic extremists used a vehicle and then knives to kill eight people and wound dozens of others on London Bridge and in the popular Borough Market area. Police shot and killed the three Islamic extremists who carried out the attack. In March, a man plowed a rented SUV into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge, killing four people before stabbing a police officer to death outside Parliament. He was also killed by police. To the north, Manchester was hit by a deadly attack May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

Champs-Elysées: Armed man crashes car into police van in 'attempted attack'

19 June 2017 18:41 CEST+02:00

Police in Paris are advising the public to stay away from the Champs-Elysées on Monday afternoon after an armed man crashed his car that contained a gas canister into a police van. The driver died according to the Interior Minister, who described the incident as an "attempted terror attack". French police launched a major security operation on the famous Champs-Elysées avenue in the west of Paris on Monday after what was believed to be the latest terror attack targeting police in the French capital. It has been reported that the suspected attacker was subject to an "S" file, meaning that authorities were at some point monitoring him for potential links to extremism. Members of the public were told to avoid the area after a driver crashed his Renault Megane into a van carrying gendarmes (French military police) at around 15:40. The driver's vehicle (seen in the picture below) then exploded into flames. Police say there was a gas canister inside the car. "Security forces have been targeted in France once again," France's new Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said, calling the incident an "attempted attack". The weapons and explosives found in the vehicle "could potentially blow this car up," he added. Police sources have told French media they believe the act was deliberate and anti-terrorist police have been called in to take charge of the investigation. There were no casualties reported and no police officer or member of the public was injured. However Pierre-Henry Brandet a spokesman for Interior Ministry said the driver, who was pulled from his car by police, appeared to have died, but it could not be confirmed officially due to the ongoing security operation. "A bomb disposal operation is under way to ensure the vehicle poses no further danger," spokesman Brandet said at the scene. Police sources had previously said the driver was "unconscious on the ground". Police sources told AFP he was armed with a Kalashnikov, hand guns and gas bottles. According to BFM TV sources the driver was a 33-year-old, known to intelligence services. He was what's known as "fiche S" in French, meaning he was considered a threat to security. By 5pm the situation on the Champs-Elysées was "under control", according to the police. AFP Images posted on social media showed a huge police presence around the area that is normally packed with tourists and shoppers. A huge area around the lower end of Champs-Elysées avenue was cordoned off by police. One witness, a journalist with French daily Liberation who was travelling down the Champs-Elysées on his scooter said he saw a car that appeared to have blocked the police van. AFP "The gendarmes jumped out of their vehicles and then I saw an explosion in the passenger seat," said Eric Favereau. "The gendarmes rushed to their truck to take out tools and break the windows of the car," he said. "They manage to open the car, which was on fire. They pulled out a man and they pull him to the ground while others used fire extinguishers," the witness added. Police have closed two of the metro stations on the Champs-Elysees, a major tourist draw in the French capital. France has been on high alert for terrorism after a string of deadly attacks in recent years, many of which have targeted police officers and soldiers. In April a jihadist shot dead a police officer on the Champs-Elysées and seriously injured two others just days before the first round of the presidential elections. A note praising the Islamic State group was found next to the body of the gunman, Karim Cheurfi, in that incident. Police later found other weapons in Cheurfi's car including a shotgun and knives. Monday's Champs-Elysées attack is just the latest that has taken place in one of the French capital's most iconic tourist spots. Earlier this month, an Algerian student launched a hammer attack on a policeman outside the Notre Dame Cathedral. And in February this year a man tried to attack soldiers with machetes. In 2015 terror attacks in the capital left almost 150 dead, including the devastating attack on the Bataclan music hall. Paris authorities made efforts to step up security at tourist spots in the capital. A project is underway to install a bullet proof glass wall around the base of the Eiffel Tower.

Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt to Mideast to Advance Israeli-Palestinian Negotiations

by Deborah Danan19 Jun 2017

TEL AVIV – Senior White House advisor and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner will travel to the Middle East this week in order to advance a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians, according to a White House official. Together with Middle East special envoy Jason Greenblatt, Kushner is slated to arrive in Israel on Wednesday to meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The two will then travel to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah. “It is important to remember that forging a historic peace agreement will take time and to the extent that there is progress, there are likely to be many visits by both Mr. Kushner and Mr. Greenblatt, sometimes together and sometimes separately, to the region and possibly many trips by Israeli and Palestinian negotiators to Washington, D.C. or other locations as they pursue substantive talks,” the senior official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Excited to be traveling back to Israel and the Pal. Territories to continue the discussion about the possibility of peace,” Greenblatt, who arrived in Israel on Monday, tweeted on Sunday night. According to the official, ongoing dialogue has been occurring behind-the-scenes since Trump left the region last month. “President Trump has made it clear that working towards achieving a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians is a top priority for him. He strongly believes that peace is possible,” the official said. The visit to Israel will be Kushner’s second in the past two months. Kushner and his wife Ivanka joined Trump in Israel on the president’s first state visit abroad in May.

The UN Is Normalizing Pedophilia: The Deep State Is Free to Prey Upon Your Children

By Dave Hodges

The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is sanctioning a sexual revolution that will culminate in the legalization and whole-hearted support of transgenderism but will also support the legalization of pedophilia. As the Deep State is further exposed for their role in Pedogate, we can expect more counterattacks such as the legalization of pedophilia. From The New American: “The United Nations “Human Rights Council,” which counts some of the world’s most ruthless dictatorships as members, sparked global outrage last week by voting to appoint a UN czar to oversee the normalization of homosexuality and transgenderism around the world. …According to the UN’s propaganda service, the discredited UN “Human Rights Council” debated the measure for almost four hours on June 30 before adopting the scheme in a contentious vote. Just 23 member governments and regimes voted in favor of creating the new czar, while 18 voted against and six abstained. The measure was pushed forward by a tight-knit network of communist and socialist governments in Latin America with close ties to Marxist terrorist groups, Western globalists, Moscow, and Beijing. A number of European governments and other members of the “LGBT Core Group,” which includes Obama and the EU, also played a key role in pushing the scheme from outside the UN “human rights” outfit.“For the first time, work on this issue [normalizing homosexuality and transgenderism] will be effectively institutionalized at the Human Rights Council,” the UN said….” …”celebrated as a “great step forward for human rights in the United States.” “The measures he advocated here — including new laws to protect people from discrimination — are the same measures that, today, we advocate to governments everywhere.” Ironically, the praise for the child rapist came even as the UN’s “peace” armies were facing global outrage for systematically raping and sexually exploiting children around the world. Years ago, I wrote about the fact that NAMBLA was advocating for the legalization of pedophilia. Care to guess who their largest contributor is? Look at the following: The following is an example of how academics talk about pedophilia. Soon, the practice, much like transgenders terrorizing girls in female restrooms has become the norm. “Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” said the presentation. “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.” Some yellowing tract from the Seventies or early Eighties, era of abusive celebrities and the infamous PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange? No. Anonymous commenters on some underground website? No again. The statement that paedophilia is “natural and normal” was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge. Other presentations included “Liberating the paedophile: a discursive analysis,” and “Danger and difference: the stakes of hebephilia.” Hebephilia is the sexual preference for children in early puberty, typically 11 to 14-year-olds. The most heinous organization in America is Nambla. Nambla is short for the North American Man-Boy Association and their identifying banner statement is “sex before 8 or it is too late”. We are on our way in the country to allowing and even encouraging sex with children. The last taboo is being eliminated. It is now tolerated that creatures with an XY chromosome structure can now enter little girls restrooms, under the guise of being a transgender and terrorize these girls George Soros style. Your children are about to become part of a world that they are not equipped to live in. How long will it be until employees who have sex with children is protected as well when we look at the transgender issue in bathrooms. No, this is not hyperbole, it is a legitimate concern. The North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) begins to figure prominently into this picture. In the past, one of their trademark phrases was “sex before eight, or it’s too late”. This is an obvious attempt to remove the last perverted prohibition from our legal code as well as our societal safeguards to protect our children. Words cannot describe how sick and perverted these people truly are. And before you think that this could never become a reality, please consider that globalist, George Soros, gives money to NAMBLA. If that is not concerning enough for you please realize that Kevin Jennings, an Obama Department of Education official, and a close friend of Hillary Clinton has involvement with this group as well. “Could the last taboo be permanently removed? You mean I no longer have to hide the fact that I am a pedophile? Bootstrapping gender neutral and homosexual protection issues to pedophilia is already happening. The New York Times is on record saying the pedophilia is not a crime. The ACLU is actively defending Nambla and pedophile advocates.

US Tries to Restrict China's Silicon Valley Investments '20 Years Too Late'

10:45 15.06.2017(updated 13:22 15.06.2017)

The US is trying to limit Chinese investment in high tech enterprises in a doomed effort to stop China from catching up to its level of development, experts told Sputnik China. US officials are considering restrictions on Chinese investment in Silicon Valley because of concerns that Beijing could use technology developed in the US to get the edge in the military and intelligence fields. According to an unreleased Pentagon report, China's interest in areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, which have increasingly attracted Chinese capital in recent years, are of particular concern in Washington. The US government's Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has been circumvented by China, via transactions such as joint ventures, minority stakes and early-stage investments in start-ups, the report says. Intelligence expert Andrei Masalovich told Sputnik China that China's increased cyber capabilities have been decades in the making, and the US is doing too little, too late to stem this development. "The Americans have woken up, albeit too late. They needed to recognize 20 years ago that China was aiming for world domination," Masalovich said. Key areas of advancement in IT include artificial neural networks, which carry out information processing in ways akin to a living brain, and computer algorithms capable of machine learning. "These solutions work well in the military sphere. First of all, this allows the automatic determination of targets, automatic targeting. If that is done well, there is only more step to take before the sniper's rifle can pull the trigger itself. A human only needs to give the order." "Today there are already rifles which are using a Linux operating system. The rifle chooses the target itself and asks a human whether to pull the trigger." "The Americans understand that the winner today is the person who takes the final half-step towards almost fully automated weapons. This applies not only to tactical weapons but to weapons of mass destruction and any type of combat management or situation control. China is now completing a whole range of tasks in this area and is probably going to claim the title of new leader, not just one of several world players," Masalovich said. Chen Fengying of the Chinese Institute of Modern International Relations told Sputnik China that US officials' stated concerns about national security conceals real anxiety about competition from China in the IT sphere, particularly with respect to artificial intelligence. "I believe that the US's biggest concern is that it may fall behind China in the new round of global competition in IT, especially in the field of artificial intelligence. The so-called problem of US national security is just a kind of pretext. Today, there is very strong global competition in the information technology sphere, the new industrial revolution has already started." "The US fears that China is going to overtake them so they are using the problem of national security as a pretext to limit Chinese investments in Silicon Valley. In reality, China's cooperation with Silicon Valley companies is already developing comprehensively and American partners are also aggressively entering the Chinese market. Of course, American players have a very significant motivation – a state with a nascent market in the field of intellectual property, technology. A lot of effort is being made in other spheres of high science and technology to catch up with those who are ahead. This situation puts the US, as a developed country, under intense pressure." Alexander Lomanov of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Far Eastern Institute told Sputnik that there is another explanation for the US attempt to stem China's advances in the IT sphere. "There is another explanation – this [the US restrictions] is the pretense of great activity in a situation where it is practically impossible to take real counter-measures." "China, of course, is interested in foreign technology and US technology is also interesting for them. But China is also investing a lot of resources in its own technology; it is paying serious attention to the development of an innovation economy. In any case, I think that in 10-15 years the development gap won't be an issue for China, it will have the basic technology and the ability to develop it independently." "Of course, the Americans don't want the Chinese to be developed technologically. But today there is a global society and apart from America there are a lot of centers of technological development. In particular, cutting-edge technology is also being developed in Israel; China could also enter into some kind of partnership there," Lomanov said.

Powerful eruption of Sheveluch volcano sends ash to 12 km (39 360 feet) a.s.l.

Posted by TW on June 15, 2017

A major eruption started at Russia's Sheveluch volcano at 16:20 UTC on June 14, 2017. KVERT reports a plume of ash reached a height of 12 km (39 360 feet) above sea level and warned explosions up to 15 km (49 200 feet) could occur at any time. The Aviation Color Code was raised from Orange to Red. At 19:00 UTC, vast ash cloud (140 x 60 km / 87 x 37 miles) from the eruption was observed about 64 km (40 miles) to the southwest and 76 km (47 miles) to the northwest from the volcano, KVERT said at 19:32 UTC. By 20:20 UTC, ash cloud grew to 196 x 223 km (122 x 138 miles). Front of ash cloud with a large content of ash particles (67 x 54 km / 41 x 33 miles) was observed about 96 km (59 miles) north-northwest of the volcano, but the other front of ash cloud was 118 km (73 miles) southwest of the volcano. By 22:30 UTC, ash cloud grew to 422 x 155 km (262 x 96 miles / 36 000 km2 / 13 900 mi2). Ash cloud with a large content of ash particles (84 x 55 km / 52 x 34 miles) was observed 131 km (81 miles) to the north-northeast. A general front of the largest ash cloud was observed 225 km (140 miles) to the northeast, and the other about 194 km (120 miles) to the southwest. By 06:00 UTC, the front of first ash plume was about 640 km (398 miles) to the ENE of the volcano, while the front of the second ash plume was about 294 km (182 miles) SW. At 06:56 UTC on June 14, KVERT said that explosive-extrusive eruption of the volcano continues and warned that ash explosions up to 10 - 15 km (32 800 - 49 200 feet) above sea could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft. A major eruption started at Russia's Sheveluch volcano at 16:20 UTC on June 14, 2017.

Animation courtesy JMA/Himawari-8, CIRA Taking into account the wind direction of ash plume, the city of Klyuchi, located at a distance of 50 km (31 miles) S of the volcano, is expected to be most exposed to dangerous ashfall, EMERCOM said. "The population was notified by the stationary loudspeakers and were given advice on how to behave during the ashfall," it said, adding that the community has a sufficient number of respirators. Residents of the districts of Ust-Kamchatsky, located about 85 km (53 miles) SSE of the volcano, and Milkovsky, about 240 km (150 miles) S, were recommended not to go out if they notice ashfall. Furthermore, the General Directorate of EMERCOM of Russia for Kamchatka region warned the population that inhalation of ash is dangerous and can cause allergic reactions: If you notice ashfall, close the doors and windows. If the ash enters the home, family members should wear respirators, gauze bandages or breathe trough a towel. Cover computers, stereo, and other equipment with plastic wrap or thick cloth and do not use them during ashfall. If you were outside during ashfall, do not bring the clothes in the house. After the ashfall, wear a dust mask and goggles before cleaning the house from the ashes; clean roof gutters and other places in which ash may have accumulated. Geological summary The high, isolated massif of Sheveluch volcano (also spelled Shiveluch) rises above the lowlands NNE of the Kliuchevskaya volcano group. The 1 300 km3 (311.9 mi3) volcano is one of Kamchatka's largest and most active volcanic structures. The summit of roughly 65 000-year-old Stary Shiveluch is truncated by a broad 9-km-wide late-Pleistocene (5.6 miles) caldera breached to the south. Many lava domes dot its outer flanks. The Molodoy Shiveluch lava-dome complex was constructed during the Holocene within the large horseshoe-shaped caldera; Holocene lava dome extrusion also took place on the flanks of Stary Shiveluch. At least 60 large eruptions have occurred during the Holocene, making it the most vigorous andesitic volcano of the Kuril-Kamchatka arc. Widespread tephra layers from these eruptions have provided valuable time markers for dating volcanic events in Kamchatka. Frequent collapses of dome complexes, most recently in 1964, have produced debris avalanches whose deposits cover much of the floor of the breached caldera. (GVP)

Health insurance companies now pushing EUTHANASIA to avoid paying disease treatment coverage costs to doctors and hospitals

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 by: Tracey Watson

(Natural News) While involuntary euthanasia – the act of ending someone’s life without their consent to spare them pain and suffering – is illegal in the United States, assisted suicide – or voluntary euthanasia – is legal in six U.S. states. In Washington, Oregon, California, Vermont, New Mexico and Montana, doctors may prescribe lethal doses of certain drugs to patients who have made the choice to die, rather than endure further suffering or add to the suffering of their families. Euthanasia is already a hotly debated subject, and it has become even more controversial since it became evident that health insurance companies are using it as a way to avoid properly caring for terminally ill patients. Dr. Brian Callister, an internal medicine specialist from Nevada, and cancer survivor J.J. Hanson, a 36-year-old former Marine, have teamed up to highlight this issue and to discourage other states from legalizing euthanasia. Dr. Callister claims that he has seen several of his patients denied medical treatment, and instead being offered suicide pills because they are less expensive. He believes that in some cases, the treatments that were denied could have been life-saving for his patients. [RELATED: For more stories like this see Twisted.news] Hanson, who is president of the Patients’ Rights Action Fund (PRAF), was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumor called glioblastoma back in 2014, and was given less than a year to live. He says that in the immediate aftermath of his diagnosis he was depressed and considered euthanasia, and believes that if it had been legal in the state of New York, where he lived at the time, he would no longer be around to tell his tale. Having made the decision to live, however, he has beaten the odds, and after several surgeries, clinical trials and other treatments, has already lived for two years longer than doctors said he would. Hanson’s experience is in stark contrast to that of Brittany Maynard, who chose to end her life at the age of 29, under Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act, after she, too, received a glioblastoma diagnosis. Hanson and Callister believe that insurance companies with their eye on the bottom line may pressure patients into taking the assisted suicide route simply to save money, rather than being willing to pay for medical treatments that might provide a real chance for these patients to survive. “This takes away the idea of hope and for patients to go forward,” said Hanson. “Once someone decides to do this, there is no follow up. If I had decided to do it, there would be no follow up. You are on your own, there’s no prevention of someone jumping right into it.” One example of a woman who was pressured in this way is Stephanie Packer, a young mother of four, whom Dr. Callister claims was denied chemotherapy and instead offered an assisted suicide drug which costs $1.20. Packer had no desire to die, and wanted to fight to survive and see her children grow up. These laws are also dangerous because they open the door to involuntary euthanasia. It is now much easier for a healthcare provider to claim that they were asked to provide life-ending drugs, when in fact they might not have been asked to do so. This dangerous trend has already gained steam in Belgium, according to a study published in 2015 in the Journal of Medical Ethics. The author of the study, Raphael Cohen-Almagor, a professor of philosophy and ethics at the U.K.’s Hull University, discovered that lethal drugs were being used to “shorten life and without explicit request” by patients. Cohen-Almagor found that the practice usually involved patients who were either comatose or suffering from dementia, or “because discussion would have been harmful to the patient’s best interest.” Imagine a world where health insurance companies get to decide what’s “in the patient’s best interest.” Now try to picture them not considering money when they make that decision.

U.S. moves long-range rocket launchers into southern Syria, intelligence sources say

The U.S. military has moved a new truck-mounted, long-range rocket launcher from Jordan to a U.S. base in Tanf, Syria, near the Iraqi and Jordanian borders, stepping up its presence in the area, two regional intelligence sources said on Wednesday. They said the (High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems - HIMARS - had moved into the desert garrison, which has seen a buildup in recent weeks as tensions escalate after the U.S.-led coalition struck Iranian-backed forces to prevent them advancing toward the Tanf base. "They have arrived now in Tanf and they are a significant boost to the U.S. military presence there," one senior intelligence source said, without elaborating. The HIMARS had already been deployed in northern Syria with U.S.-backed forces battling Islamic State militants, he added. Washington deployed the HIMARS on the Turkish border to strike at Islamic State outposts. They were used several times from the Jordanian border to hit militants who had a foothold in the southeastern desert. Under heavy pressure, the militants have mostly retreated from the desert in the last three months. Now U.S.-backed Syrian rebels are competing with the Syrian army and Iranian-backed militias as they all try to recapture territory from Islamic State. Tanf is near a Syria-Iraq border crossing on the main Baghdad-Damascus highway. The rebels took it from Islamic State last year, partly to stop Iran from using it to send arms to the Syrian government. The rebels also want to use it to take more territory along the border and to push toward Deir al-Zor, a large city on the Euphrates where the government has an enclave surrounded by Islamic State fighters.

Microsoft AI sets Ms. Pac-Man record in latest blow to human superiority

on June 15, 2017

Anybody wanna see a Ms. Pac-Man kill screen? Okay, so the game doesn’t have a kill screen, but thanks to Microsoft we’re able to see what happens when someone, in this case something, scores one million points. Zero is what happens, as in the game flips over to a nil score. While the end result may be anti-climactic, the fact that 35 years after the game’s release we finally have advanced technology enough to score one million points in Ms. Pac-Man is actually pretty cool. Games may not be the most impressive way of demonstrating it, but this is another example of how teaching machines to learn can help us to break boundaries. Today it’s Ms. Pac-Man; tomorrow computers might be figuring out how to gobble up cancer cells in people instead of ghosts in machines. As artificial intelligence continues to develop we may eventually see an end to the comparisons between the feats of man and the feats of machine; which are one in the same, really. For now, however, anyone keeping score knows it isn’t looking good for team human. Deep Blue beat us at chess, the robots have taken our money in poker, and our future overlords now own the top spot on Ms. Pac-Man. Take that meat-bags.

Congressman: ‘By the Grace of God, One of the Folks Here Had a Weapon to Fire Back’

By Dan Andros June 14, 2017

Congressman Mike Bishop recounted this morning the harrowing events that unfolded while GOP members of Congress were practicing for a charity softball game early Wednesday morning. During a radio interview with WWJ radio, Bishop revealed that one of the coaches had their 11-year-old son at the practice, making the situation even more precarious. He described how most of them were sitting near the backstop area, so when the gunman, 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, began shooting they were essentially trapped. Hodgkinson has died, the President confirmed. Hodgkinson’s Facebook page revealed he was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and even a volunteer. Sanders addressed this matter this morning: Since Congressman Scalise, who was shot in the hip, is Congressional leadership, there were Capitol Police on the premises. It was their heroic actions that provided everyone else the brief cover they needed to run and find a more favorable position. An incredible account, via MRCtv: Rep. Mike Bishop: “Well, good morning. I am sorry that the noise around me and the chaos that I am sure you hear behind me, but who play in a charity baseball game, and every morning we come and practice at a field out here in Virginia. “As we were standing here this morning, a gunman walked up to the fence line and just began to shoot. I was standing at home plate and he was in the third base line. He had a rifle that was clearly meant for the job of taking people out, multiple casualties, and he had several rounds of magazines that he kept unloading and reloading it. Firing it. “The only reason—the only reason—why any of us walked out of this thing: By the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. Because we were inside the backstop and if we didn’t have that cover by a brave person who stood up and took a shot themselves, we would not have gotten out of there and every one of us would have been hit. Every single one of us. Question by WWJ reporter: Oh, my gosh. That must have been so frightening for you. What are you feeling now? Bishop: “Well, I’m just shocked. I’m okay. I’m fortunate. I’ve scrapes—and, you know, it’s going to take awhile to recover from this. But my biggest concern is: Some of my close friends and our staff–two of our staff were hit. Steve Scalise, who is our chief whip, was hit on second base. I watched him get hit and I couldn’t do anything to help him. We tried to get him off as fast as we could but this guy was relentless with his fire. And one of our staffers got hit in the chest and I pray for him. I just don’t know what the outcome is going to be. But this is a tragic situation and frankly, it’s changed everything as I know it forever. Question: Is the gunman dead? Bishop: “He was behind this utility building, and I, they neutralized him, hit him once. Took him down. He was coming around the corner, Roberta, he was coming around the fence line. And he was looking for all of us, who had found cover in different spots. But if we didn’t have return fire right there, he would have come up to each one of us and shot us point blank. That is what would have happened. Question: Who was the one who returned fire and you said he was hit as well? Bishop: Yes. At least one of–Since our chief deputy was here, he has armed security with him, and fortunately, they reacted immediately. Came out onto the field in harm’s way to try to fire back. But they are firing back with their handguns against a rifle that was meant from a distance, where he was. And all they can do is return fire and at least make sure he at least stops for a second that gives us a chance to run. Question: Oh, my gosh. Did he say anything before he started shooting? Bishop: Not a thing. He stood there silently. None of us saw him walk up. You know, every once in awhile–you know its early in the morning so usually nobody else is up–but every once in awhile someone is walking a dog, or just kind of walking … One of our coaches had his son, his 11-year-old son. I have an 11-year-old son, too, who is supposed to be here. And I am just, I can’t even tell you. I don’t know. Fortunately, everybody’s okay. But it’s just traumatic. Question: Congressman Mike Bishop, we are speaking too, And I am sorry for the staff that you mentioned that was hit. And we understand that a congressman was hit, too. Do you know who that was? Bishop: Yeah, it was Steve Scalise, our chief whip, our third in command. He was standing on second base. I was looking right at him. I couldn’t get to him. I don’t know–We were helpless to try … He was a sitting duck. Question: How many others were hit? Do you know? Bishop: The nearest as I can figure there were four. Somebody just told me it may be more, but I don’t know. I saw two staff, and I saw at least one detail, and one member of Congress.

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are real and God is not 'a magician with a magic wand'

Francis goes against Benedict XVI’s apparent support for 'intelligent design' - but does hail his predecessor’s 'great contribution to theology'

Adam Withnall@adamwithnall Tuesday 28 October 2014 09:43 GMT

The theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real and God is not “a magician with a magic wand”, Pope Francis has declared. Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI. Francis explained that both scientific theories were not incompatible with the existence of a creator – arguing instead that they “require it”.When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said. “The Big Bang, which today we hold to be the origin of the world, does not contradict the intervention of the divine creator but, rather, requires it.

“Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.” The Catholic Church has long had a reputation for being anti-science – most famously when Galileo faced the inquisition and was forced to retract his “heretic” theory that the Earth revolved around the Sun. But Pope Francis’s comments were more in keeping with the progressive work of Pope Pius XII, who opened the door to the idea of evolution and actively welcomed the Big Bang theory. In 1996, John Paul II went further and suggested evolution was “more than a hypothesis” and “effectively proven fact”. Yet more recently, Benedict XVI and his close advisors have apparently endorsed the idea that intelligent design underpins evolution – the idea that natural selection on its own is insufficient to explain the complexity of the world. In 2005, his close associate Cardinal Schoenborn wrote an article saying “evolution in the sense of common ancestry might be true, but evolution in the neo-Darwinian sense – an unguided, unplanned processis not”. Giovanni Bignami, a professor and president of Italy’s National Institute for Astrophysics, told the Italian news agency Adnkronos: “The pope’s statement is significant. We are the direct descendents from the Big Bang that created the universe. Evolution came from creation.” Giulio Giorello, professor of the philosophy of science at Milan’s University degli Studi, told reporters that he believed Francis was “trying to reduce the emotion of dispute or presumed disputes” with science. Despite the huge gulf in theological stance between his tenure and that of his predecessor, Francis praised Benedict XVI as he unveiled a bronze bust of him at the academy's headquarters in the Vatican Gardens. “No one could ever say of him that study and science made him and his love for God and his neighbour wither,” Francis said, according to a translation by the Catholic News Service. “On the contrary, knowledge, wisdom and prayer enlarged his heart and his spirit. Let us thank God for the gift that he gave the church and the world with the existence and the pontificate of Pope Benedict.”

GOP Lawmakers Want To Carry Guns After Shooting

Kerry Picket Reporter 11:53 PM 06/14/2017

WASHINGTON — Texas Republican Rep. Roger Williams, a player on his party’s congressional baseball team, agreed with his colleagues that he would have felt more comfortable if he had been armed during Wednesday morning’s shooting. Michigan Republican Rep. Mike Bishop, another ball player at the field, said earlier Wednesday that he and his colleagues were “sitting ducks” on the field. Williams agreed. “Well, it took the second shot for me to understand what was happening here,” Williams told The Daily Caller at a press conference late Wednesday afternoon. “Everybody we were sitting ducks. I mean we had no we had nothing to fight back with but bats if it got to that. We were sitting ducks. I think he was not able to get on the field because the gate was locked on the other side. If you gotten on the field it could have been a bad situation. But he was not able to do that. But we were sitting ducks.” When asked if he thinks members should be able to carry firearms in the Capitol and other currently restricted places, he replied: “Remember two things. Well, first of all, I’m for the Second Amendment — a big Second Amendment guy, and I’m from Texas. So yes, I would have felt lot more comfortable if we were able to do that.” Another member of the conference’s baseball team who was on the field during the incident concurred. “I think we need to look at some kind of reciprocity for members here,” Rep. Barry Loudermilk told The Daily Caller earlier in the day. Loudermilk, according to team manager Texas Rep. Joe Barton, helped administer first aid to Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot by the gunman.

etc. For truly the news media does not always tell you the truth, they tell you what they want you to hear, but not what is really going on, except for a little, do they know that later the truth will always find them out, for one can only cover up lies for so long before they come uncovered. etc.

'Hate-Provoking U.S. Media' Guilty Of Inciting Shooting of Congressional Republicans In Virginia While Liberals Celebrate The Attempted Massacre

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine June 14, 2017

We awoke this morning to the news that gunman opened fire on Congressional Republicans practicing baseball for their scheduled Thursday annual charity baseball game, with reports stating that anywhere from 50 to 100 shots were fired, with multiple people injured, including two Capitol Hill police officers and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana. Via Grabien on the shooter: The shooter, identified as James T. Hodgkinson, appears to be a Bernie Sanders fan. His Facebook page reads, "Democratic Socialism in Three Words: 'We the People.'" One of his most recent posts says, "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co." [sic] "I want Bernie to Win the White House." he wrote Aug. 12th, 2016. "Bernie is a Progressive, while Hillary is Republican Lite. ... Bernie is the Only Candidate in Decades that Really Cares about the Working Class." Related: James T. Hodgkinson: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know According to preliminary reports, no one was killed in the attack (other than the shooter), due to the presence of Scalise's security that fired back, giving others a chance to find some cover during the 10 minute chaotic ordeal, as described by Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop, who told WWJ News Radio 950 " The only reason why any of us walked out of this thing, by the grace of God, one of the folks here had a weapon to fire back and give us a moment to find cover. We were inside the backstop and if we didn’t have that cover by a brave person who stood up and took a shot themselves, we would not have gotten out of there and every one of us would have been hit — every single one of us,” said Bishop. “He was coming around the fence line and he was looking for all of us who had found cover in different spots. But if we didn’t have return fire right there, he would have come up to each one of us and shot us point-blank." Before opening fire the gunman approached Rep Jeff Duncan and asked "Are those Republicans or Democrats out there practicing?" 'HATE-PROVOKING U.S. MEDIA ISN'T INNOCENT' While we will provide links as well as statements via interviews with those that were in attendance, saying they were "sitting ducks," we are seeing much discussion across the Internet on the fact that the gunman specifically targeted Republican congressional members, and why. Make no mistake, the gunman is responsible for his actions, but over the last two years we have noted the consistent and deliberate actions on the part of the liberals and the establishment media to incite violence, encourage sick minds into rioting and violent actions and now into a mass shooting, and we have to ask when they will start to take responsibility for their overly partisan rhetoric, with headlines like "The House Passed A Health Care Bill That Will Kill People," or "The GOP plan for Obamacare could kill more people each year than gun homicides," or "Bernie Sanders, Democrats: Republican Health Care Bill Will Kill People," or "Republicans Are Waging A 'Coordinated Attack' On Women's Health." The message is clear and deliberate on the part of the liberal media, the GOP wants you dead, they don't care, etc.................. Liberals over on social media are actually celebrating the fact that a crazed gunman opened fire on Republican congressional members and shot Majority Whip Scalise, via Grabian News: Newsflash for good ole Leon there, as to his top claim about the gunman being a 2nd Amendment supporter. Had he been one, he would have been trained with his weapon, because safety, training and responsibility, are a large part of pro-gun support, and Mr. Trotsky, we are trained to hit what we aim for, so it is very doubtful that "middle aged white man" was a traditional Second Amendment supporter, since he was shooting for approximately 10 minutes, fired anywhere between 50 and 100 times, and managed injure only a handful and kill no one. You can see much more of the same type of reaction on the part of liberals at Grabien. Related: Congress baseball gunman was a Trump-hating Bernie supporter MEDIA DECLARES WAR ON GOP, TRUMP, TRUMP SUPPORTERS AND NOW THEIR PUPPETS ARE ATTACKING We have often spoken about how the MSM has targeted Trump supporters, police, conservatives and Republicans, where their biased reporting and "fake news," has incited riots and mass violence. Who can forget the members of the CNN panel, holding their hands up in the air promoting the now-debunked lie of "hands up, don't shoot," which had police across the country targeted by their crazed audience? Who can also forget all those attacks against those "deplorable" Trump supporters after the media characterized them all as racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, anti-immigrant, Mexican hating, Islamophobic, sexist and a whole host of other lies the MSM, Democrats and liberals were so fond of calling us. Who can forget how the MSM, including NBC News, USA Today, CNN, CBS, the Los Angeles Times, deliberately mislabeled Milo Yiannopolous, a gay man that publicly dates black men, a white supremacist and a racist, then were forced to issue corrections, that never reached the same amount of people, yet look at the chaos their "fake news" incited in places like Berkeley: The examples go on and on and on, but just the few examples above are all results of media lies. BOTTOM LINE I will reiterate my assertion that the gunman that opened fire on Republican congressional members is 100 percent responsible for his own actions, not the gun that did not fire itself, and not anyone or anything else. But the media is responsible for inciting these sick minds with their outright fake news and lies, their overly partisan "reporting" where they target Trump, his supporters, and conservatives across the nation. When will they take responsibility for their "hate-provoking" coverage of news that they are supposed be objectively reporting? When will they be held accountable for the almost-daily lies that are inciting crazy people?

Can a Divided America Survive?

Victor Davis Hanson|Posted: Jun 15, 2017 12:00 AM

The United States is currently the world's oldest democracy. But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history's most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt or were overrun by invaders. The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation's more than 3,000 counties -- in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The other half, the conservative Red states of the interior of America, is geographically, culturally, economically, politically and socially at odds with Blue-state America, which resides mostly on the two coasts. The two Americas watch different news. They read very different books, listen to different music and watch different television shows. Increasingly, they now live lives according to two widely different traditions. Barack Obama was elected president after compiling the most left-wing voting record in the U.S. Senate. His antidote, Donald Trump, was elected largely on the premise that traditional Republicans were hardly conservative. Red America and Blue America are spiraling into divisions approaching those of 1860, or of the nihilistic hippie/straight divide of 1968. Currently, some 27 percent of all Californians were not born in the United States. More than 40 million foreign-born immigrants currently reside in the U.S. -- the highest number in the nation's history. Yet widely unchecked immigration comes at a time when the country has lost confidence in its prior successful adherence to melting-pot assimilation and integration. The ultimate result is a fragmenting of society into tribal cliques that vie for power, careers and influence on the basis of ethnic solidarity rather than shared Americanness. History is not very kind to multicultural chaos -- as opposed to a multiracial society united by a single national culture. The fates of Rwanda, Iraq and the former Yugoslavia should remind us of our present disastrous trajectory. Either the United States will return to a shared single language and allegiance to a common and singular culture, or it will eventually descend into clannish violence. Does the unique American idea of federalism still work, with state rights and laws subordinate to federal law? We fought a Civil War that cost more than 600,000 lives in part to uphold the idea that individual states could not override the federal government. Yet sanctuary cities declare that they can freely nullify federal immigration law. The California Senate passed a bill earlier this month that would prohibit the state from contracting with any firms that work on the federal government's wall at the border with Mexico. States such as California vow that they will ignore Washington and work directly with foreign nations to promote their own policies on global warming. Read carefully what some prominent Californians are saying about the federal government: It is not much different from what influential Confederate South Carolinians boasted about in 1860 on the eve of secession. The national debt has almost doubled over the last eight years and at nearly $20 trillion is unsustainable. Entitlement spending rose even as new taxes increased. The have-nots claim the haves make far too much money; the haves retort that they pay most of the income taxes while nearly half the country pays nothing. Most Americans agree that the present levels of borrowing and spending cannot continue. But many believe that the tough medicine to cure the disease of chronic annual deficits and mounting debt is unacceptable. America's infrastructure and military are vastly underfunded, even though some voters want more subsidies for themselves and apparently others to pay for them. America's once-preeminent colleges and universities are fatally compromised. Universities charge far too much, resist reform, expect exemption from accountability, and assume their students must take on huge amounts of debt. Yet campuses can't guarantee that their graduates are competently educated or that they will find jobs. Illiberal attempts to end free speech, to sanction racial and gender segregation, and to attack rather than argue with opponents are disguised by euphemisms such as "safe spaces," "trigger warnings" and various -isms and -ologies. Behind the guise of campus activism and non-negotiable demands is the reality that too many students simply are unprepared to do their assigned work and seek exemption through protests in lieu of hard studying. America barely survived the Civil War of 1861-65, the Great Depression of 1929-39, and the rioting and protests of the 1960s. But today's growing divides are additionally supercharged by instant internet and social media communications, 24/7 cable news, partisan media and the denigration of America's past traditions. All Americans need to take a deep breath, step back and rein in their anger -- and find more ways to connect rather than divide themselves. They should assume their opponents are not all sinners, and that their supporters are not all saints. Things are bad now. But our own history suggests that if we are not careful, they can get even worse.

America’s at the Doorstep of Civil War- Mike Adams and Dave Hodges

I recently interviewed Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, about the condition of our country. Regarding the shooting, today, outside of DC, Mike’s words are prophetic. We began the discussion with a notation of the most likely false flag events which will befall America. We discussed will America have false flag events in our future? Because the Deep State is being exposed on a number of fronts, in particular, the child-sex-trafficking issue, false flag events are needed as a distraction away from the serial criminality of the Deep State. America has been stocked with left-wing subversives who will stop at nothing to divide our country. Many of these operatives are brainwashed by the Soros message to the young, “you deserve something for nothing” message which appeals to the snow-flake generation. Every radical subversive group is being aligned against traditional American values. Advocation of violence and the use of violence is being the mantra of the left. The result is that America is headed for a civil war. We will see UN Peacekeepers on our soil, resources will be disrupted and violence will spread until America is engulfed in a full-fledged civil war. The following interview captures the elements that are present on today’s America that will turn the country against itself. This is a riveting interview that should go viral.

Racism from the Left Is Pushing America Towards Civil War

America has entered a critical part of her history. We are undoubtedly facing a second civil war. We are living in a country where the liberal media is encouraging more attacks upon conservative politicians like what we recently witnessed at the Congressional baseball practice. Media outlets such as the Huffington Post and the New York Times are actually encouraging violence against White Conservative Christians. If you are not a member of crazy left, you are now a target every time you leave your house and your odds of being victimized if you are conservative have increased, and will continue to increase exponentially. The following paragraphs provide a small sample of the claims made in the previous paragraph. The Huffington Post Represents the Leftist Ideal of Violence to Promote Social and Political Change Huffington Post contributor, Jason Fuller, recently wrote that impeachment was not enough to “drain the swamp.” Further, Fuller stated that President Trump must face “the ultimate punishment”, meaning he should be executed. Fuller should be in prison for threatening the life of the President which is a felony. In addition, the Huffington Post should be shut down for encouraging violence against President Trump. In addition to Fuller’s thuggery, consider the following tweet from Huffington’s Post writer, Jesse Benn. Jesse Benn should also be in jail and this, also, should be another nail in the coffin of this rogue publication. It is clear that Benn is calling for organized acts of violence against politicians, presumably, the President. It is very clear that the leftist mainstream media is directing its radical members to carry out organized and armed attacks upon conservative White Christians (CWC). And if these CWC;s are Republican conservative politicians, all the better. Where is the FBI? Obviously, there are too many Deep State employees at the FBI to launch any meaningful investigation. However, these inappropriate attitudes, on the part of the left do not exist in isolation. And of course, if there is violence against conservatives, the New York Times is not far behind with their ridiculous conspiracy theory the Sarah Palin incited the attempted assassination of Gabby Giffords by Jared Loughner in 2011 in Tucson, Az. This is the left’s obvious response to the fact that it has been revealed that the would be assassin of dozens of Republican congressmen, was a Bernie Sanders volunteer. Yesterday, I watched an interview with Golden State basketball star, Stephen Curry told reporters that he doesn’t plan to visit the White House, if the Warriors are invited after winning the NBA Championship earlier this week. Curry went on to say that “Somebody asked me about it a couple months ago, a hypothetical, if a championship were to happen, what would I do,” Curry said. “I answered I wouldn’t go. I still feel that way today.” Sports Illustrated reporter Richard Deitsch tweeted the following: Follow Richard Deitsch ✔@richarddeitsch There is zero chance this @warriors team is going to the White House. If I’m wrong, I’ll own it. https://twitter.com/EdgeofSports/status/874451645610037249  … 9:20 PM – 12 Jun 2017 Excuse me, I do not intend any disrespect to Black people, but I fail to see what the issue is with Donald Trump. Where is his overt racism? If you can show me legitimate examples, I will be happy to join you in your outrage. I have long been a proponent of civil rights for all, but I fail to see the objection to Trump. Would Curry go visit Valerie Jarrett, who was found guilty of being a slumlord with her disgusting housing practices leveled against her residents at the Garden Grove Apartments? Well Curry did visit her and the President and it did not seem to matter to Curry that Jarrett’s abused tenants were all Black people. She was dismissed as the assistant communications director by the City of Chicago for this revelation. What about that Stephen Curry? That certainly did not keep you from visiting her boss, President Obama, when you won your first title now did it? You see, Curry is like so many Blacks in this country in which they hate Trump because someone told them that was the thing to do. So please enlighten me, what am I missing here? However, this same group seems to forget about the fact that politicians like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders show up every four years and promise Blacks the sky, the sun and the moon and then they are never heard from again for another four years when the next election rolls around. And what has been the net result? Black people, as a group, are poorer than ever. There was a recent time when the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency. What changed for Blacks? Absolutely nothing, things have only gotten worse. Stephen Curry is a great basketball talent, but he epitomizes the term “dumb jock” when it comes to his social and political awareness. But he does represent, all too well, the racial divide that has been artificially created by people like George Soros who is desperately trying to protect the Deep State from the prying eyes of the conservative side of the country. Conclusion The racial division is not the only reason that we are on the precipice of a civil war, but it is a major reason why. People of color have been encouraged to hate whites and conservative politicians. But I would ask them, how have the Democrats helped you? I think it is likely that if we are to have a long, hot summer of violence in American, race will be the primary motivator. And it is a shame, because it does not have to be this way.

Suicide Epidemic

By Hal Lindsey

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, more people died last year from suicide than from auto crashes. We most associate killing oneself with the young, but it strikes across the lines of age, race, and culture. It affects society in unexpected ways. Foreign Policy magazine ran an article with the headline, “America's Suicide Epidemic Is a National Security Crisis.” But it’s not just an American phenomenon. According to the World Health Organization, global suicide rates have risen more than 60% in the last 45 years. Almost a million people a year are known to succeed at taking their own lives. But that number is almost certainly low because of the extreme stigma in many cultures against suicide. People in those places kill themselves in ways that look accidental, or the family covers up afterward. The epidemic took on a new dimension when we learned about an 8-year-old boy who apparently took his own life in Cincinnati. In a case of extremely violent school bullying, the boy had been beaten unconscious. The school called his mom. She went to pick him up, and both school officials and the boy told her that he had “fainted.” He seemed okay, so she took him home. When he began vomiting later, she took him to the hospital. Doctors there concluded that he had a stomach virus, and they sent him home. At this point, neither the doctors nor the mother knew that the child had been beaten and lay unconscious on a school floor for more than seven minutes. He stayed home from school the next day, returned to school the day after that, then came home and hung himself with a necktie. By all accounts, he was a bright and happy boy. His attacker had been picking on other children, and this boy approached him, apparently trying to settle things by shaking hands. That’s when the vicious assault began. No one knows exactly what was going on in this little fellow’s head. But a link between the bullying and the apparent suicide seems obvious. If you wonder how it is that bullying can seem cool to anyone, just look at the popular comedians and their jokes at the expense of White House spokesman Sean Spicer. What funnymen are doing to Spicer goes far beyond traditional political humor. They are on a crusade of personal destruction. Like the bullies in school, they seem unable to recognize that this is a human being with a family and with feelings. Our society has become cruel and coarse. Fun seems only fun if it comes at the expense of another person’s dignity or humanity. There seem to be no limits on viciousness. Consequently, a deep despair has settled over America and much of the world. Kindness and empathy have been largely lost in public discourse, and too often lost in private. Among children aged ten or less, suicide is extremely rare. The numbers go up dramatically for ages 11 through 14. Statistics make another upward turn during high school years. According to the CDC, 20% of high school students will seriously consider suicide this year. 15% of those will make a plan, and 8.6% will make a serious attempt. People who closely watch this sort of thing report a surge in just the last few months. Many of them blame the Netflix TV series, “13 Reasons Why.” The show depicts suicide affecting survivors exactly as suicidal youngsters hope. After the suicide, everyone is sorry and everyone expresses love for the lost young person. The people who weren’t nice to the girl in life, regret their mistakes after she’s gone. In other words, it romanticizes suicide. The program makes suicide seem like a kind of revenge, or a good way to teach others the ultimate lesson. Making things worse, young people who are prone to suicide have a difficult time recognizing the finality of the act — that they won’t be around to enjoy all the attention and remorse. In a column for The Guardian, Zoe Williams wrote, “If there was a list of ways not to portray suicide, this would tick every box.” She says, “‘13 Reasons Why’… is a revenge fantasy, so it portrays suicide as an act that will achieve something. It’s aimed at a young audience, who are particularly susceptible to contagion, and particularly likely to experience suicidal thoughts. It normalizes and legitimizes the act. It goes into too much and too graphic detail about the suicide itself — which is expressly against Ofcom (the U.K.’s Office of Communications) guidelines because, however horrible it is to watch, this can still be read as a how-to.” According to mental health advocate and media commentator, Mark Henick, “13 Reasons Why… provides a cognitive pathway, a roadmap of sorts, that tricks the minds of those at risk for suicide into believing the lies that their mental illnesses tell them.” But this is not just an epidemic among the young. In the U.S., 20 veterans per day die by suicide. That statistic is often recounted in the media as an indictment of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But most of the veterans killing themselves are over the age of 50, and they weren’t anywhere near Iraq or Afghanistan. Experts give a variety of reasons for this new epidemic, but it really comes down to something quite old — hopelessness. Back in 1976, I wrote a book called The Terminal Generation. It said, “Man can live about 40 days without food, 3 days without water, about 8 minutes without air… but only about a second without hope.” The best answer to despair is not platitudes, vague spirituality, or even science. It is hope. Real hope with real answers. And that’s what we have in the Person of Jesus — real answers for this generation. Real hope. “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” — Romans 15:13

WashPost: Deceased Gunman Was 'Living out of Gym Bag' in Alexandria

Purported photo of James T. Hodgkinson, alleged Virginia shooter.

Wednesday, 14 Jun 2017 02:00 PM

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, identified by law enforcement officials as the deceased gunman who opened fire on Republican lawmakers at a Virginia baseball field, was "living out of his gym bag" in Alexandria, The Washington Post reported. Further, Hodgkinson who was shot and mortally wounded by police during the rampage, had been at the YMCA early Wednesday before he went to the ballfield where he allegedly carried out the attack, the Post reported. "He was a very friendly person. But what I did notice about this gentleman is he'd open up his gym bag and in it, he had everything he owned. He was living out of the gym bag. That, and he sat in the Y’s lobby for hours and hours," former Alexandria mayor Bill Euille told the Post. According to his social media, Hodgkinson was an avid supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders and a hater of President Donald Trump. ABC News reported Hodgkinson's wife said he had been living in Alexandria for the past two months, but was expected to return to Belleville, Illinois, in the coming days. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, of Louisiana, was shot in the hip, but is stable and recovering after surgery, according to his staff. Four others —​ including two Capitol Hill police officers —​ also were wounded in the shooting. NBC News reported there was "political or domestic motivation" behind Hodgkinson's attack, not international terrorism. However, the FBI is investigating it as a "deliberate attack," CNN reported. To wit, Reps. Ron DeSantis and Jeff Duncan said as they were leaving the baseball practice early, they were approached by a man who asked if those were Democrats or Republicans practicing on the field. Hodgkinson's purported Facebook page, which has since been removed, featured a picture of Sen. Sanders. In March, Hodgkinson posted that "Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It's Time to Destroy Trump & Co." Another post, from 2015, was aimed at Scalise, according to the Post. "Here’s a Republican that should Lose His Job, but they Gave Him a Raise," Hodgkinson purportedly wrote, including a political cartoon that portrayed Scalise speaking to a group of people clad in Ku Klux Klan hoods, the Post reported. Sanders on Wednesday denounced the attack. "I am sickened by this despicable act," Sanders said in a statement. "Let me be as clear as I can be. Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our society and I condemn this action in the strongest possible terms." Sanders confirmed reports that Hodgkinson had worked on his campaign as a volunteer. The Post also reported Hodgkinson owned a home inspection business, but his license expired in late 2016 and was not renewed. According to the Post, Hodgkinson was charged in April 2006 with battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle but those charges were later dismissed. An Illinois local newspaper, the Belleville News-Democrat, posted a photo of Hodgkinson protesting outside a local post office in 2012, holding a sign saying "Tax the Rich." He has a record of arrests on relatively minor charges, including failing to obtain electrical permits, driving under the influence and resisting a police officer, according to the paper. A reporter for the paper has been camped out at Hodgkinson's home, sending updates via Twitter.

Desperate residents trapped high in the enormous residential tower block were heard 'screaming' for help

Police were evacuating panicked residents and two people are already being treated for smoke inhalation

An emergency telephone number has been set up for those caught up in the horrific blaze - 0800 0691 233

A baby was dropped from the tenth floor of a blazing tower block and was caught by a man who ran forward from crowds underneath to grab it into his arms. The miracle rescue occurred as Grenfell Tower was engulfed by flames in a fire thought to have been caused by a fridge exploding which has claimed the lives of at least 12 people. Samira Lamrani said she saw a woman try to save a baby by dropping it from a window 'on the ninth or 10th floor' to waiting members of the public below. She said: 'People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming. 'The windows were slightly ajar, a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby. 'Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby.' She added: 'I could see people from all angles, banging and screaming for help. 'Us members of the public were reassuring them, telling them we've done what we can and that we've phoned 999, but obviously the look on their face was death. 'My daughter's friend said she observed an adult who made some sort of homemade parachute and tried to lower himself out of the window. 'The more I looked up, floor upon floor. Endless numbers of people. 'Mainly the kids, because obviously their voices, with their high pitched voices - that will remain with me for a long time. 'I could hear them screaming for their lives.' Another resident, called Zara, said she saw a woman throw her son, who was about five years old, from a fifth or sixth floor window to escape the blaze. She told LBC: 'One woman actually threw her son out of the window. I think he's OK. 'I think he might have just had some broken bones and bruises. 'I left my phone at home so I went back to grab it and, by the time I got back, the road was completely blocked off, the fire had dramatically spread. 'It was like a scene from a Hollywood movie.' Asked about which floor the boy was thrown from, she said she thought it was the fifth or even the sixth. 'There was another woman screaming 'my baby, my baby, I need to get out, I need to save my baby'. 'But we were just looking up. 'We couldn't do anything. 'There was nothing we could do.' Another caller, Linda, told the station how she watched huge chunks of polystyrene type material falling from the building. 'It was everywhere, it was like snow,' she said. 'There were larger sheets and small pieces. 'It was coming down everywhere.' The trapped, some of whom are still inside, were heard begging for their lives while waving white towels, torches and mobile phones to attract the attention of the 200 firefighters who started storming the building within six minutes of the 999 call. One White City resident called Tamara told the BBC: 'There were people just throwing their kids out saying “Save my children". Within another 15 minutes the whole thing was up in flames and there were still people at their windows shouting "Help me". You could see the fire going into their houses and engulfing the last room that they were in.’ Those who managed to flee said it was 'like hell on earth' inside and compared the disaster to the 9/11 attack - and also revealed there was no working fire alarm, sprinklers failed and the only staircase out was blocked. Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has also demanded to know why Grenfell residents were told to 'stay put' in their flats for up to an hour in the event of a fire. Dany Cotton, Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade, said there had been 'a number of fatalities' and structural engineers are checking the stability of the building, which appears to have warped. London Ambulance Service said 50 people are in hospital and paramedics are treating many more walking wounded for smoke inhalation and minor burns. Grenfell's own community action group called for the tower to be pulled down four years ago over 'appalling' fire safety in the building and said today their repeated warnings to landlord Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO) fell on 'deaf ears'. KCTMO completed a £10million refurbishment last year and the new cladding encasing the block originally built in 1974 'went up like a match', one resident has said.

2 Cases Threaten to Shut Down Public Prayer. Why the Supreme Court May Need to Act.

Ken Klukowski / @kenklukowski / June 14, 2017

Two federal appeals courts are considering whether elected leaders throughout the Midwest and mid-Atlantic regions must abandon the 200-year-old practice of opening local meetings with an invocation. Both cases could end up before the Supreme Court by Christmas time. In one case, a self-described pagan sued the board of commissioners of Jackson County, Michigan, arguing that its tradition of beginning monthly board meetings with an invocation violates the Constitution’s Establishment Clause, the First Amendment provision disallowing government from establishing an official religion. In 1983, the Supreme Court in Marsh v. Chambers examined Nebraska’s practice of employing a salaried Christian chaplain who offered the Legislature’s invocations for 16 years, and held that “legislative prayers” at policymaking-body meetings are constitutional. Americans need an alternative to the mainstream media. But this can't be done alone. Find out more The court noted that the first Congress wrote the Establishment Clause in the same week it passed laws to create a House chaplain and Senate chaplain, whose public duties included offering invocations every day that Congress is in session. Over the next three decades, some lower courts and academics speculated that Marsh might be a one-off exception to normal Establishment Clause rules. Some argued that invocations must be generic, and therefore mentioning Jesus Christ or making other sectarian references would be unconstitutional. In 2014, the Supreme Court addressed this confusion by taking another case concerning a New York town where the invocations are offered by local volunteer clergy—all of whom were Christian. In Town of Greece v. Galloway, the court held that these invocations, too, are constitutional, even if all the prayer-givers happen to be Christian and include sectarian content from a single faith. But litigation persisted, now focusing on the identity of the prayer-givers. Plaintiffs argued that invocations given by government officials are unconstitutionally coercive because they might imply that lawmakers will use their official powers against those who refuse to participate in the invocations. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit rejected that argument when a three-judge panel ruled 2-1 for the government in Lund v. Rowan County, North Carolina. However, the Richmond-based appeals court reheard the case in March in a rare en banc proceeding in which all 15 judges participated. It is very possible the en banc court will invalidate Rowan County’s invocations in the next few weeks. The opposite situation is currently unfolding in Michigan in the case of Bormuth v. County of Jackson. There, a Clinton-appointed district judge upheld the county’s practice of allowing each of its nine commissioners to rotate having an opportunity to deliver an invocation, each according to his or her personal faith. Because all nine commissioners are Christian, the plaintiff argues that the resulting Christian invocations violate the Establishment Clause. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit reversed the lower court’s ruling in a divided 2-1 decision, ruling that such practices are unconstitutional. But on June 14, attorneys with First Liberty Institute will present arguments as all 15 judges of the Cincinnati-based appeals court rehear that case en banc. It is very possible that by late this year, a “circuit split” situation could occur between en banc appeals courts. If that happens, one or both of these cases will become prime candidates for the U.S. Supreme Court to hear in 2018 as a major religious liberty case. Legislator-led invocations fall within a broad historical tradition going back to the founding of the republic. The Town of Greece decision made clear that the Establishment Clause must be interpreted consistently with what the framers of the Constitution understood to be establishing religion. Because these invocations do not establish an official religion, as “establishment” has been historically understood, and because the invocations do not require or coerce anyone to participate, they are perfectly constitutional. If the Supreme Court means to enforce its decision in Town of Greece that centuries-old prayer traditions do not violate the Establishment Clause, then these cases may be at the forefront of a fundamental restoration of religious liberty in America.

4 killed, including gunman, in shooting at UPS facility in San Francisco

By Vic Lee Wednesday, June 14, 2017 09:03PM

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco police have completed a search of the Potrero Hill UPS facility where a shooting Wednesday morning took the lives of four people, including the apparent gunman. VIDEOS: ABC7 News team coverage of UPS shooting in SF Five UPS employees were shot in the 8:55 a.m. incident at 320 San Bruno Ave. before the shooter, whose identity has not been officially released, shot himself in the head with an assault pistol in front of arriving police officers, according to Assistant Chief Toney Chaplin. "This person took their life because the officers confronted him," Chaplin said. "None of our officers fired." Police said the gun was one of two weapons found at the scene. UPS officials earlier Wednesday described the incident as involving "six employees" and previous reports indicated the gunman was wearing a UPS uniform. However, Chaplin Wednesday afternoon said investigators had not confirmed that the gunman was a UPS employee. Three of those shot died of their injuries, while two others are being treated at the hospital. In addition to the shooting victims, Chaplin said five others suffered various injuries, most of them occurring during the rush to escape. The incident triggered a shelter-in-place order for residents in the area and shut down surrounding streets for much of the day while police evacuated the facility and conducted a search for any additional survivors or victims. Chaplin said one person was found in the building during the search and escorted out. Investigators have not yet determined a motive for the shooting and do not know if the employees who were shot were specifically targeted, Chaplin said. They have interviewed all witnesses and are currently interviewing victim's families in a search for clues. "We're going to have to go back and reconstruct not just the last 24 hours, but if there was something that happened in the weeks and months prior," Chaplin said. UPS spokesman Steve Gaut said about 350 employees work at the facility at 320 San Bruno Ave., which operates as a package sorting hub and delivery center. Gaut said, "The company is saddened and deeply concerned about affected employees, family members and the community we share." Sen. Dianne Feinstein issued a statement about the shooting, saying she "was heartbroken to learn that yet another senseless act of gun violence has marred our wonderful city." Feinstein, who served as San Francisco's mayor after the assassinations of then-Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk at City Hall in 1978, said Wednesday's shooting led her to recall yet another mass workplace shooting in San Francisco, the one at 101 California St. in 1993 in which eight people died. "Violence is never the answer, but the continuing scourge of gun violence is particularly disheartening," she said. "As we learn more details of this shooting, I'm hopeful that we can take away lessons to help prevent these acts from occurring in the future. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee also issued a statement, offering "condolences and thoughts for the individuals and families affected by the senseless act of violence." "We all know the familiar faces of our local UPS drivers and delivery persons," Lee said. "Today's tragedy will be felt in every community served by these committed employees." San Francisco police union President Martin Halloran noted that police and fire personnel had participated in an "active shooter scenario" training just last week, and were able to respond within minutes Wednesday.

Radioactive plutonium particles were airborne at Hanford: Alpha contamination confirmed

By Strange Sounds - Jun 10, 2017

Investigators have confirmed Alpha contamination measured in spots at Hanford. That means radioactive plutonium particles were airborne. Contamination has now spread to outside of a demo zone at the Hanford Site in Washington State. Radioactive Plutonium Particles Were Airborne at Hanford, K5 Investigators have confirmed Alpha contamination measured in spots at Hanford. That means radioactive plutonium particles were airborn Officials at Hanford say the ‘low-level’ contamination has been detected on sidewalks, a vehicle gate and also an area where workers keep their protective breathing equipment. Following video by DahBOO7: This is a heads up for anyone down wind of this site. The air monitors did go off and they have released workers from the facility.

Fukushima Apocalypse: Here’s How You Are Being Poisoned The Radiation And Subsequent problems Are Not Just in Japan But Now Also America.

The Fukushima nuclear disaster on March 11, 2011, resulted in massive radioactive contamination of the Japanese mainland, as well as brought to the forefront the dangers of worldwide nuclear radiation. Five years later, after-effects of the catastrophic event continue to plague the world, making it the greatest environmental disaster of all time. Fukushima nuclear plant has been pouring 300 tones of radioactive water every day, since the accident happened 6 years ago!!!!!! Life is already disapearing on the seas, and soon, our bodies will also be polluted with radiation, that will cause us countless cancers and diseases. Life on Earth is being threteaned, and surely, many of us, will have early deaths as a consequence of this radiation. Wake up! We came across a good article thoroughly examining the unbelievable radiation exposure in Fukushima from their nuclear power plant disaster back in 2011. The below article comes from Lew Rockwell’s website, truly a good read to comprehend just how severe the radiation and subsequent problems are not just in Japan but now also America. Highest Fukushima Radioactivity since 2011 is Producing ‘Unimaginable’ Consequences As the six anniversary of perhaps the world’s worst nuclear disaster in history (now rivaling Chernobyl) approaches next month, the worst radioactive conditions seen at the Fukushima nuclear power plant since the March 11, 2011, earthquake and tsunami triple core meltdown are now dangerously spewing a record setting 530 sieverts an hour inside the reactor 2 containment vessel. To help put the enormity of this problem into perspective, the previous record was only 73 sieverts per hour. Exposure to just 10 sieverts can kill a human within weeks and levels at just . 1 sievert significantly increase the risk of cancer. At the same time that peak radiation levels at Fukushima are observed, US states are also now being hit with extremely high readings, even containing significant amounts of plutonium in recent months. Radioactive plutonium isotopes are known to be among the most deadly poisons on earth. Fukushima experts can only describe this week’s deteriorating situation at the Daiichi nuclear power plant as “unimaginable.” That said, today’s limited technology to decommission the global killer that’s already destroyed much of the northern Pacific Ocean habitat will take another four decades to complete. At that rate, we all could be radioactively fried. Significantly high levels of cesium-137 will reach every corner of the Pacific Ocean within three years. With six straight years of ongoing nonstop fuel leakage, Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) still can’t determine the condition nor location of the fuel seepage. In the meantime, leaking melted fuel penetrating the bottom of the vessel reactor has burned a one square meter hole into the metal grating that’s now ready to collapse. Holes in other sections were also found. Photo images reveal below the reactor containment wall dark lumpy matter believed to be the melted uranium fuel rods. Specially made, remote controlled robots designed to probe and assess underwater conditions around the reactors rapidly crumble and shut down due to the high toxic radioactive levels. Yet TEPCO is planning to insert another robot directly inside the reactor itself to examine conditions inside the containment vessel. If the water around it is so radioactive it destroys the robot, good luck on getting a reading of contamination inside the vessel. The blind are leading the blind as never before have humans dealt with the enormity of this kind of problem. For six long years, authorities have been clueless on how to stop the meltdown leakage and radioactive poisoning from spreading further, eventually to all corners of the earth. Literally, hundreds if not thousands of tons of radioactive water have been leaking out daily into the Pacific Ocean (an estimated 400 from one account). And pretty much throughout the near six years, both TEPCO and the Japanese government have consistently lied to cover up the severity of the damage and danger to human health. Because they’ve never encountered a disaster of this sheer magnitude ever before, doctors also have no idea how to accurately measure and assess the health hazards that the soaring levels of radioactivity currently pose for the thousands of workers at the plant much less the severe threat to the nearby local populations. But does this colossal, uncontrollable crisis stop greedy nuclear power companies and nations from continuing to build more disasters waiting to happen in our already very iffy future? Not a bit. America currently fuels 19% of our nation’s electricity needs from nuclear-powered energy and wants to significantly raise that share. Construction of four more power plants are due for completion by 2021, adding to the 100 that are already operational with 24 more application proposals filed since 2007 slated for future construction. Accepting the unfathomably enormous, untold, virtually irreversible environmental damage to life on this planet that grows more devastating by the day at Fukushima now for the last half dozen years, it’s downright criminal to even think of building yet more nuclear power facilities anywhere on this already toxic saturated planet. Yet nuke advocates are constantly publishing new studies with one as recently as last month claiming nuclear power is safer than ever. And it’s that kind of disinformation propaganda that provides the impetus for countries like the US as the world’s largest nuclear energy producer to blindly continue its nuclear commitment. And our current president is as much an aficionado as the Bush-Cheney duo on both nukes for energy as well as war proposing a nuclear arms race over and above the $1 trillion already committed to nuclear upgrade. Trump’s also committed to extracting every last drop of oil and gas from this over drilled and parched earth. After all, Trump the anti-globalist candidate must keep the tradition alive. Once in the White House, every American puppet president follows the globalist edict to continue raping and pillaging our earth. READ MORE : Michio KaKu Fukushima The end of Humanity A bogus excuse commonly used to justify the “nuclear renaissance” in recent years is the so-called manmade greenhouse gases falsely linked to global warming and climate change that make nuclear development especially environmentally friendlier, so say two MIT authors touting their 2009 paper “The Growth of Nuclear Power: Drivers and Constraints,” published two years before the Fukushima debacle, which of course totally obliterates their already flaky argument. The paper goes on to promote the massive expansion plans for nuclear development in China, India, South Korea, Japan and Russia (again Fukushima and Chernobyl offer powerful sobering counterpoints). Even in post-Fukushima 2013, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) projected a high-end expectation of near doubled worldwide growth at a rate of 94% in the coming years up to 2030. Thus, despite this unfixable, ongoing catastrophe at Fukushima, numerous countries are still willing to recklessly plunge our world into yet more irreparable, perhaps to extinction level harm of gargantuan proportion that we destructive human have no solution to even begin handling. It’s both insane and suicidal! As if we haven’t done enough to kill off life on this planet, let’s take a brief look at the undeniable empirical damage. Despite the fortunate fate that winds blew 80% of the radioactivity in the first few days following the March 2011 meltdown due east out further into the Pacific, the winds then changed blowing plumes of toxic nuclear particles both northwest to Japan and south to Tokyo. In the immediate aftermath, all life forms in the Fukushima area underwent harmful exposure to gamma rays beaming up from the ground as well as breathing into the lungs and ingested through the food chain. But don’t think for a minute that North America being thousands of miles away wasn’t affected. Within just days after the accident independent scientist, Dr. Leuren Moret determined that the entire US Pacific Coast and western Canada inland all the way to the Midwest reached as high of radiation levels as Japan. And ever since March 2011 people in the northern hemisphere have been continually exposed and bombarded with large dangerous doses of radiation. Again, because of the massive conspiratorial cover-up by the Japanese government in criminal collusion with the IAEA and WHO as well as the US government, the truth of how sick and how many victims have actually died from Fukushima is murky at best and virtually impossible to definitively ascertain. On top of that, on behalf of the globalists, Japanese Prime Minister Abe ensured that a secrecy law was passed to further squelch the truth from the public. But despite the criminality of the international cabal government, here’s what we do know. Three times the amount of gasses like xenon, argon, and krypton were released at Fukushima than at Chernobyl, inhaled and absorbed in the fatty tissues of the body, typically causing lung cancer as well as cancer in various other organs. But as far as the total radiation amount released into the ocean, one study estimated that up to 100 times more escaped at Fukushima than Chernobyl although an estimated equal amount of cesium came out of Fukushima as Chernobyl. But due to the higher population density in Japan, even with roughly similar morbidity and mortality rates, the human damage of Fukushima in the coming decades stands to be much higher. In the earliest reports released to the public, thyroid cancer has been detected in 75 children after the Fukushima accident but written off due to the 2-3 year incubation period. Within two years after the 2011 meltdown, a spike in damaged thyroids amongst 40% of the Fukushima children was diagnosed from iodine-131 exposure. Despite waste management technology attempting to filter out isotopes from the contaminated water around the reactors prior to eventual release into the ocean, tritium cannot be eliminated and remains radioactive for 120 years. And tritium is known to cause brain tumors, congenital malformations, and numerous other cancers. Fish in the nearby ocean waters have measured 12,400 Bc/K radioactive levels when the Japanese limit in food is only 100 Bc/K. Even freshwater fish in nearby rivers carry 2657 Bc/K. TEPCO had lied about strontium-90 levels, recently admitting that nearby well water contains five times the earlier reported amounts – 5 million Bc/liter. There’s conjecture that this critical information may have been purposely withheld in order to secure Tokyo as the 2020 site for the summer Olympic Games. Moreover, unbeknownst to the public, radioactive wastes are being quietly moved about to different locations all over Japan for incineration. And the ashes are being dumped in Tokyo Bay where the Olympic athletes will be swimming. BBC reported that radiation levels around Fukushima are 18 times higher than previously covered. In the meantime, the ground and water around the reactor complex is so unstable, sitting in liquefied mud on a fault line no less, that its extreme vulnerability to another magnitude 7 or higher earthquake would release enough toxic radioactivity (at least 10 times the Chernobyl cesium level) to permanently pollute all of Japan and much of the northern hemisphere – certain to kill off millions of humans. Rupture of the many radioactive water tanks would also result. On November 22, 2016, a 7.4 earthquake struck northeastern Japan which well may have contributed to the current unstable situation of more leakage and record level radiation. The health of plant workers – some having been formerly homeless recruited by Yakuza organized crime – is not closely monitored. They’re being treated as sacrificial expendables and guinea pigs, as is the entire Japanese population. 13% of Japan’s mainland containing 10 million of its citizens is hopelessly contaminated for thousands of years. As the most vulnerable segment of the population at 10 to 20 times more sensitive, Japanese children at an alarming rate are becoming obese as a result of being kept indoors, forced to remain artificially inactive. Moreover, the Japanese people are eating contaminated food. But as of 2014 contaminated rice mixed in with other rice has been deemed acceptable for export and human consumption all over the world. A March 2014 US FDA update gave the green light to eating food products from Japan, claiming non-harmful levels of radiation. Of course, little do authorities advertise that since Fukushima, they’ve been conveniently upping the levels of what’s considered unhealthy to maintain globalized business as usual. For instance, before the nuclear accident, the limit danger was set at 1 mS per year but now it’s 20, the equivalent to 1000 chest X-rays a year. The nuclear worker limit is now 50 mS. Meanwhile, Japanese insects and birds are largely deformed and sterile with their generational mutations acting as canaries in the coal mine to demonstrate what humans are now facing. The bottom line is Fukushima remains an apocalyptic time bomb, a nightmare just waiting sooner than later to happen to the rest of us on the planet. Marine and wildlife are dying by the millions. Polar bears, seals, and walruses have severe fur loss and open sores with inordinately high death rates. This week alone a record high number of dead whales are washing up along the Hawaiian shores as well as other islands in Pacific Asia. So has the sockeye salmon population. Pacific fish are bleeding from their gills, bellies, and eyeballs. Virtually every sample of tested Bluefin tuna are now carrying toxic levels of radiation. For the last couple years, the West Coast has been struck by waves of highly radioactive debris. The Japan nuclear disaster has turned the California beaches into a near dead zone, devoid of the teeming marine life present just a few years earlier. With the ongoing constant leakage at Fukushima, the Pacific waters will be doubling in radioactivity over the next 5 to 10 years. Radionuclides began arriving at the western shores in early 2014. Recently measured cesium-137 levels are now off the charts in plankton from Hawaii to the West Coast. Likewise, it’s been discovered that fish sold from Japan also contain these same dangerously high cesium levels. Rates of 91-100% of marine life are toxically contaminated in samples of halibut, sardines, tuna, eel, anchovies, carp, shark, monkfish and seaweed. Over the last four decades, populations of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish have on average plummeted by half. And with massive daily animal die-offs of all kinds the global norm, we’re already well into the earth’s six mass life extinction. Because the commercial fishing industry continues harvesting sea life from contaminated waters and millions if not billions of humans continue consuming fish and seafood as a regular food staple, countless numbers of people are and will be dying from increasing cancer rates and other terminal diseases. “This is an apocalyptic event. This is something that could contaminate the entire Pacific Ocean. It is extremely serious. The reality is that Tokyo Electric does not know what is happening and does not know how to control what is going on. Our entire planet is at risk here.” “Iodine-131 can be ingested into the thyroid, where it emits beta particles (electrons) that damage tissue. A plague of damaged thyroids has already been reported among as many as 40% of the children in the Fukushima area. That percentage can only go higher. In developing youngsters, it can stunt both physical and mental growth. Among adults it causes a very wide range of ancillary ailments, including cancer.” “…The worst case scenario could play out in death to billions of people. A true apocalypse… A weather event, power outage, earthquake, tsunami, cooling system failure, or explosion and fire in any way, shape, or form, at any location on the Fukushima site, could cascade into an event of that magnitude as well.” There is still time for you to prepare, but you have to start learning how to make your own survival foods as soon as humanly possible. The best way to do it is to get the inside scoop on how to do it right. Fortunately, there is a way to get twenty years worth of The Lost Ways. This new food storage system is called The Lost Ways. You do not need a lot of expensive equipment to store foods for a crisis using the methods taught here. Even better, The Lost Ways pays for itself quickly as you begin to put away garden produce or even meats that you buy on sale. For most folks it's simply the biggest bargain of their lives. You can finally become self-sufficient and any extra money saved in food expense goes right back to your pocket. Frankly, at the end of the day, The Lost Ways actually makes you money! What's more, the videos take you by the hand, step by step, through the entire process of "putting away" almost any food you can think of. It's very much like having a food storage professional right there with you every step of the way.

Are These Cities 'Marked For Destruction' When God's 'Cataclysmic Judgement' Is Carried Out Upon America?

- Interactive Map Shows America's 'Most Sinful Cities' By MT Taylor - All News Pipeline

Listen to the prophets: Hurry and get out of the cities—those that are marked for destruction! Yes, God has revealed his special plan for America’s sinful cities that celebrate immorality and laugh at righteousness. He has alerted his prophets to set the trumpets to their mouths, announcing that judgment on rebellious cities is coming and a date has been set aside for their downfall. Those who are sounding the alarm include prayer walker Henry Gruver, who delivered a message of warning on Steve Quayle’s site recently, sharing a vision he had years ago of the wicked rushing into sinful cities. “God will draw the wicked into cities marked for destruction,” Henry warned. “By his Spirit he will draw them into massive conferences and conventions. He told me, ‘I will draw them as I drew the animals into the ark.’ “As they are in the cities, God will send destruction. But he will provide places of refuge for the righteous; they will be spared by God’s divine intervention.” In this case, God’s intervention sounds like something from the pages of a science fiction novel, for even as Gruver watched a vision of cruise missiles firing on American cities from the sea, God’s people were safe in domed cities. Giant plexiglass domes—the modern-day equivalent of medieval walled cities--shielded them from fire, volcanic ash, and nuclear destruction. God said that this devastation would happen in the latter days and directed his people to read Psalm 37 for confirmation. The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; He is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, Because they take refuge in him. In his books and sermons, the late David Wilkerson consistently warned about cataclysmic judgment on America, pointing out that today we have examples of cities such as Shiloh, Rome, London, Carthage and Ninevah. “Yet these sinned less than our great American cities,” he pointed out. “There is not a doubt in my mind—New York City, Wall Street and the United States are living on borrowed time. God may move in judgment any day now.” As decency laws have collapsed across the nation, our cities have been in a steady moral decline. Like Wilkerson, many Americans were shocked when national leaders fell off their pedestals in the 1990s and the city of Washington D.C. became a byword for corruption and blatant immorality. Today the political climate there has become synonymous with a quagmire to the point that cleaning D.C. of corruption is referred to as “draining the swamp.” We have examples of other American sinful cities in our headlines every day. In fact, some citizens congratulate themselves for their city’s notoriety, exploiting the image of loose living without consequences to attract a profitable tourist trade. Could people really be proud to have sin at the center of their city? It seems to be the case in Las Vegas, which has reached the number one place on most lists of America’s sinful cities. In fact, with its menu of gambling, vice and debauchery, Vegas has earned for itself the nickname of “Sin City,” a place to escape any overbearing notions of morality. As one proud citizen told it, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Interactive map from Wallet Hub seen below. Scroll over and left click for cities and 'sin' rankings. But what about other sinful cities? Does America have enough candidates to make up a list naming the nation’s top 10 or even 25 sinful cities? The answer is yes, according to sites like WalletHub, and Faithwire, institutions that score cities on the amount of vice and corruption. Another scoring option used by some graders is based on the seven deadly sins, traditionally considered to be pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, and sloth. Vegas has the distinction of top ranking on most lists. Following, in constantly changing order, are cities like New Orleans, Tampa, Milwaukee, Atlantic City, Reno, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Baton Rouge, Miami, and Pittsburgh. Even Orlando, the nation’s family destination, has made it on some lists. So where does all the vice come from? How did a nation founded on God’s Word and Christian principles end up with its cities steeped in sin and ungodliness? Wilkerson credits the nation’s downfall on a “spirit of iniquity” that has caused a fast downhill slide of morality. Another answer is straight from the Bible. In Matthew 11, when Jesus is sending out his disciples to preach about the kingdom of heaven, he instructs them on how to deal with those towns whose people are hardened and won’t listen. And if anyone will not welcome you or heed your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. Truly I tell you, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town. Matthew 10: 14,15 A Bible Gateway commentary on Matthew 10 notes, “Sometimes entire cities or nations withhold God’s truth from their children, perpetuating a hardness against God for generations. In such cases, judgment may be God’s primary means of gaining the people’s attention.” So we go back to Henry Gruver’s message warning people to repent and come out from the sinful cities. With forecasts of apocalyptic judgment in the form of nuclear attacks, floods, famine, erupting volcanoes and walls of fire, can it be any wonder his prophets are crying out? In a posting on Jouko Piho’s prophetic site, Texas pastor Sister Katy shared a vision she received on awakening one morning in 2010. Three times she heard in her spirit God’s directive: “Call my people out of the cities.” The Lord told her to warn his people to leave the doomed cities and find shelter in the wilderness, in remote and forgotten places far away from the city where the coming destruction wouldn’t reach them. “Tell them to build houses with thick walls that are earthquake and fireproof,” he instructed. “I want My people to survive and inherit the earth.”

Navy SEAL Confirms: Thousands of Elite Pedophiles Arrested – Media Blackout

By Solovey Razboynik - May 2, 201

As the blanket mainstream media blackout of Elite pedophile rings continues, a US Navy SEAL has gone on record to confirm thousands of high-ranking child abusers have been arrested, despite press silence on the busts. Retired SEAL, Craig Sawyer, has vowed to tackle the pedophilia networks in Washington D.C. head on and says that Trump's promise to take down Pedogate is being fulfilled - it's just being covered up. Sawyer has been working with high-level federal law enforcers and intelli... etc. and the news story continues.

Alaskan volcano spews plumes of ash into the Bering Sea in breathtaking new image captured by NASA satellite

Bogoslof volcano keeps erupting and its latest activity was snapped by Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8

Captured sediment plume extending to the northwest, creating a striking green-blue hue to the Bering Sea

A small puff of smoke can also be seen bellowing out of the volcano's opening in the image from space

Alaska’s Bogoslof Island may sit in a remote part of the world, but its latest activity could not hide from satellites in space. NASA Earth Observatory has captured the eruption in a stunning image that shows a sediment plume extended to the northwest – creating a striking green-blue hue to the Bering Sea. Snapped by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8, the photo highlights the activity that occurred on June 5 and a small puff of steam that was rising from the volcano. Since Bogoslof Volcano sprang back to life with a series of explosions starting in December 2016, scientists have been keeping watch from afar via satellite and seismologic data. The Alaskan volcano may be remote—halfway down the Aleutian Island chain—but it still poses a hazard to aircraft. Researchers had announced on May 28th that a ‘major volcanic eruption is imminent, underway, or suspected, with hazardous activity both on the ground and in the air,” according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO). And in the same day, the volcano exploded – shooting ash at least 35,000 feet into the air. Two more eruptions followed days later – June 5th being the second. The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured a small puff of steam rising from the volcano and a sediment plume extended to the northwest, imparting a striking green-blue hue to the Bering Sea. Scientists have kept a close eye on Bogoslof volcano, as it keeps erupting, and has demolished much of its Aleutian island home with a string of huge explosions. Earlier this year, scientists took a unique look at how the eruptions had changed the layout of the remote island. Satellite images taken 19 years apart revealed a massive crater created by the volcano that has taken out about a third of the island's landmass. The volcano sits about 850 miles southwest of Anchorage, a remote location making observation difficult. On December 23, observers on a Coast Guard vessel reported spotting ash, lightning, and 'ejection of incandescent lava,' scientists at the Observatory said in a report. There have been more than 10 eruptions since mid-December, observatory geophysicist Dave Schneider said. Prior to that, the last reported eruption was in 1992, when an eruption lasting 19 days sent a cloud rising to 3 km above Bogoslof Island, which was identified on satellite imagery. The massive explosions have demolished much of Bogoslof's island home, US Geological Survey observations show. The island has also added roughly 187,007 square feet of new land, thanks to huge amounts of lava and ash pouring from the active stratovolcano. Chris Waythomas, a geologist at the Alaska Volcano Observatory, noted how the landscape has changed in a pair of satellite photos taken nearly 19 years apart. Ash has built up, causing more mass at the northern tip of the island, while the underwater volcano has also created a huge crater that has taken out a third of the island's landmass. Mr Waythomas told CBS News: 'It might help us with the understanding of the ash plumes that have been generated. 'They're all happening in a submarine environment, so seawater plays a big role in driving this eruption. 'So magma, seawater interaction is a big part of the eruptive process.' The island is home to a large population of fur seals, who may have been impacted by the relentless eruptions. Vulcanologists plan to visit the area this year with US Fish and Wildlife Service biologists to see the impact to the seals and other wildlife.

US Air Force grounds an entire squadron of F-35 fighter jets after pilots were 'deprived of oxygen' in the cockpit

Training flights of F-35 warplanes were halted at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona

Five incidents were reported in which pilots complained of lack of oxygen

Air Force says the incidents occurred from May 2 until Thursday

F-35A Lightning II aircraft is manufactured by Lockheed Martin Corp

By Reuters Published: 15:14 EDT, 9 June 2017 | Updated: 03:22 EDT, 10 June 2017

The stealthy F-35 fighter jets made by Lockheed Martin Corp were temporarily grounded at a US Air Force base in Arizona on Friday because of irregularities in pilots' oxygen supplies, an Air Force spokesman said. Training flights were scheduled to resume on Monday after a day of safety briefings at the base on Friday, a base spokeswoman said. Lockheed Martin plans to demonstrate the advanced jet at the Paris Air Show this month. At Luke Air Force Base northwest of Phoenix, Arizona, the 56th Fighter Wing canceled local flying operations for its F-35A Lightning II aircraft due to five incidents in which pilots experienced symptoms resembling hypoxia, or oxygen deprivation, according to the Air Force spokesman, Captain Mark Graff at the Pentagon. The Air Force said the incidents occurred from May 2 to Thursday, and that in each case the aircraft's backup oxygen system worked as designed and the jets were able to land safely. The base typically has 25 training flights each weekday, the base spokeswoman said. The Pentagon said that it was conducting a comprehensive review of the facts and circumstances surrounding physiological episodes along with industry experts. A Lockheed representative said the company would help the Air Force address the issue. The F-35 business accounted for about 37 per cent of Lockheed's total revenue during the last fiscal quarter, which ended on March 30. During the quarter, Lockheed's revenue from its aeronautics business increased 8 per cent to $4.11billion, led by higher sales of the F-35. Lockheed and its main partners, Northrop Grumman Corp, United Technologies Corp's Pratt & Whitney and BAE Systems Plc have been developing and building F-35s for the US military and 10 allies. More than 220 operational F-35s have been built and delivered worldwide, and they have collectively flown more than 95,000 flight hours.

Incredible photos show the moment a Russian jet intercepted US aircraft during a live training operation over the Baltic Sea

A US Air Force B-52H, part of a formation of US aircraft, was intercepted by a Russian jet on Friday, according to the US Defense Department

Photos from the department show the Russian Su-27 Flanker flying closely to the American planes before peeling off

The US aircraft are part of ongoing BALTOPS exercises, an annual live training operation between several NATO Allies

By Dailymail.com Reporter Published: 21:49 EDT, 9 June 2017 | Updated: 13:52 EDT, 10 June 2017

The US Defense Department has released dramatic photos of a Russian aircraft intercepting American bombers over the Baltic Sea. The photos show a Russian Su-27 Flanker intercept a formation of US Air Force aircraft, including a US Air Force B-52H, 2nd Bomb Wing, during BALTOPS exercises on Friday. Most intercepts are considered 'safe and professional,' according to Pentagon spokesman Capt. Jeff Davis. The annual live training operation, between several NATO Allies and Partner Nations, is used to practice air and maritime integration and maintain stability in the Baltic Sea region. BALTOPS is set to continue until June 16. Earlier this week on Tuesday, the Kremlin claimed it had intercepted a US bomber that was flying near the border of Russian airspace. Moscow's defense ministry announced the incident on Tuesday morning, saying one of its SU-27 jets was dispatched to an area over the Baltic Sea. The defense ministry said an aircraft was detected flying along the border, prompting the intercept. Russia Today claims the SU-27 was sent out shortly after 7am GMT - or 3am on the east coast of the US. The ministry went on to claim that the Russian jet identified the plane as a US B-52 strategic bomber and escorted it until it flew further away from the border. Similar incidents have happened close to Russian airspace in the past. In September, a Russian fighter jet flew within 10 feet of a Navy surveillance aircraft. At the time, American officials called it an unsafe intercept over the Black Sea.

BREAKING: Syrian Army Has Reached the Iraqi Border, Cutting off the Americans at al-Tanf -- Russian MoD

A major move to cut off the US in southern Syria from taking more territory

RI Staff Subscribe to 955 Fri, Jun 9, 2017

The Syrian Army has reached the Iraqi border, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense. While we don't have a lot of details yet, here's what we can say: this is a brilliant move if true. Not exactly a checkmate yet, but definitely a check on US ambitions in southern Syria. In essence, as Americans were busy bombing small Syrian groups entering their declared exclusion zone via the main road, a separate Syrian force staged a lightning-quick advance through roadless desert, well to the east of the "deconfliction" zone enveloping the Americans. If the US forces are not cut off from ISIS they no longer have an excuse to continue occupying this part of Syria. (Or will they insist they get to leapfrog over the Syrian army?) Russians are saying it will be them and the Syrians -- rather than the Americans -- who will be advancing along the Iraqi border towards al-Bukamal (the major border crossing in the Euphrates valley coveted by the Pentagon): Russian officers also accused the US of hindering the Syrian war effort against ISIS, by blocking its military from opening a new front against the group: “The coalition air forces and the strongholds of the forces of New Syrian Army have blocked the way of the government forces, tasked with defeating IS groups.” “This is a violation of the sovereign right of Syria to protect it borders." There is a video of the Russian briefing, but so far not yet translated (except for an incomplete summary at RT). UPDATE -- Apparently in sync with the Syrian army move south, Iraqi forces likewise advanced against ISIS from their side and met on the border. Thus Syria has not just reached the formal Iraqi border, but actually re-established an actual link to Iraq: UPDATE #2: We now have the video of the briefing at Russian MoD with English subs. The most relevant part starts at 15:27 into the clip:

The Deep State’s Top 5 False Flag Options Designed to Destroy the US

The Deep State needs a game-changer. This means they need a false flag, or a series of false flags in order to take over and impose martial law for our “safety”. After much deliberation, I developed a rank-ordered list of the five mostly likely false flag events. False Flag Scenarios There are many candidates, therefore, I have chosen what I feel are the most likely. Man-made “natural disaster. At one time, I would not have listed this as number one, but with the advent of the Oroville Dam crisis, this is my choice as number one. When, not if, the Oroville Dam goes, 2.5 million people are at immediate risk. Also, the number two rice producing area in the world would be gone as would the number one winter vegetable crop. This is a trigger for a famine, not just in the US, but across the planet. Additionally, 25% of all retail comes out of California. If the Oroville Dam gives way, the transportation pathways out of California, would be underwater. The American economy would collapse within a few days. There is one more stunning development according to Paul Preston. On Sunday night, Paul will be on The Common Sense Show to describe the well-placed tactical nukes that are under the dam. This is the number one choice for a false flag event that will initially bring the country to its knees. Chemical and/or Biological. Nearly 4.5 years ago, I had a very good friend who was in FEMA who early-retired along with several FEMA and DHS colleagues and they had been secretly forming their own getaway facility in lieu of what was coming. My friend told me that if the shadow government, now called the . In October of 2012, he told me that America wDeep State, could not make the country the way that they wanted it to be, they would likely launch a chemical/biologic attackas ready for a populist movement and this could trigger the attack. This was more than 3 years before Donald Trump’s announcement he was running for President. Finally, he felt that a 90% mortality goal would be be the goal. I first reported these facts on the CSS in December of 2012. Cyber attack attack upon the Grid. In a total grid down scenario, the Naval War College has stated that their studies predict a 90% mortality rate within the first two years. The initial cause of death would be starvation and local armed conflicts. In major cities, disease would become a primary threat as well. However, the biggest killer would quickly become water-borne illnesses that would be present because finding uncontaminated water would be challenging because the water filtration systems are electrically powered. Please note that most of these false flag scenarios have projected mortality rates of 90%. When we read the depopulation desires of the elite (eg Ted Turner), this matches the desired 90% depopulation rate. A cyber attack upon the grid is more preferable to the elite than an EMP attack because it achieves the same, but the recovery rate would be much faster after the collapse of the country, along with the high depopulation rate would be achieved. Cyber attack upon the banks and the Stock Market. If number three happens, it is likely that number four will happen simultaneously. A grid down scenario and and a similar attack upon the financial structure of the country would result in a total collapse of the country. Both state and federal governments would fail. The country would devolve into a series of war lords waging regional wars for control over resources. Those who control food and water would win, at least temporarily. This scenario would make America vulnerable to takeover by UN Peacekeeper and we would become an occupied land. The death rate is hard to calculate in this scenario but I believe it would approach 90%. Presidential assassination of illegitimate coup which would remove Donald Trump from office. Parallel to this possibility is the fact that several Soros-based organizations are promoting as much chaos in America as possible. We just entered into a planned set of protests, in the next 30 days, in which major protests are planned across in America in as many as 140 cities. A coup, or assassination against Trump could trigger unrest that would spread like a wildfire because of Soros pre-revolutionary work. Conclusion Please note that a nuclear false flag and/or an EMP attack did not make the top five because they would make the country uninhabitable. There is too much wealth available to the elite to totally destroy the country when removing the government and the majority of the people can be achieved without destroying infrastructure. There is one inescapable conclusion, America has been targeted for extinction with a very dramatic loss of life. The CIA front group, Deagel is projecting these cataclysmic changes will occur by 2024. I think it is will be much sooner given the vulnerability of the Deep State, they are like a wounded animal and they will soon lash out if they are unable to escape the extreme exposure that they are currently going through. In the next part of this series, I will discuss preparation for these scenarios. Many “fools” have stopped prepping. These people are increasing their chances that they will be victims. The purpose of the next part in this series is to increase the odds of individual survival.

This Is How Close We Came To Nuclear Annihilation - Explosive Interviews Between Vladimir Putin And Oliver Stone Prove Americans Made The Right Decision In 2016

- From 'Dead Hand' To 'A Russian Warning', Americans Made A Bold Move Towards Survival In 2016

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die June 10, 2017

While Megyn Kelly recently got ripped to shreds for her NBC debut interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin that 'failed to impress', with film director Oliver Stone and others claiming "Megyn Kelly didn't know her stuff", a new upcoming series of interviews between Stone and Putin promises to be much more hard-hitting if recent indications are correct. Stone recently met with Putin for 19 hours of conversations over a period of several months stretched out over 2 years and as the NY Post reports, the four-part series of "The Putin Interviews" premieres on Monday night on Showtime and promises to be quite a bit more eye-opening than Kelly's 'dud'. While Putin recently claimed he didn't care if you or I or anyone else thought that he was rude to Kelly during their interview, several clips that have already been released from the Oliver Stone interview prove to us that we'll be getting much more truth from Stone and Putin than we ever got from Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton or the msm, this at a time when millions of Americans are 'awakening' to the lies we've been told for many, many years now. In this story we'll take a look at the 7 new video clips featuring interviews between Stone and Putin that have already been released upon the Showtime YouTube channel as well as the final video below, for those who are able to 'stomach it', the pitiful interview between Putin and Megyn Kelly.

Human farmers obsolete? Drones and driverless tractors now being used to harvest crops autonomously

Tuesday, June 06, 2017 by: Bridgette Wilcox

(Natural News) We may soon be living in a world where farms are run by robots, as new farming technology threatens to phase out human involvement in farming processes. Agricultural engineers from the Harper Adams University in Shropshire, England, are exploring new ways of farming crops, aiming to be able to grow and harvest a field of cereal crop without humans setting foot on the farmland. The researchers have already created a driverless tractor that can be steered remotely, the DailyMail.co.uk reported. The tractor will be able to drill, seed, and spray the land, after which an automated combine harvester will harvest the field. At the same time, drones will be used to monitor crops — eliminating the need for farmers to go into the field and examine the produce themselves. The farming process is already underway, and drilling of barley seeds has already been completed. At the moment, researchers are waiting for the seed to grow, with drones being used to monitor the progress and quality of crops. The crop is set to be harvested in August and September. “We’re hoping to string everything together to create one whole system, which will allow us to farm our hectare of cereal crop from establishment to harvest, without having to go into the field,” said Kit Franklin, who is part of the research team. “This is the first time in the world that this has been done but pushing boundaries is what engineering research is about.” According to the report, the research team believes that their study will change the way farming is done, and will give farmers more free time. However, there are questions as to the long-term effects this could have, not only on the quality of the yield, but on the lives of farmers. Franklin said he believes that automating the farming process will not put farmers out of jobs; saying that they will just be working out of the farm land as fleet managers and agricultural analysts who will man the farming robots and monitor the crops remotely. Despite Franklin’s reassurance, robots are still likely to have a detrimental effect when it comes to farming. Advocates for farm workers have pointed out that aside from the loss of jobs, automated farming could lead to the use of more pesticides, and compromise the safety of the food supply. “The fundamental question for consumers is who, and now, what do you want picking your food; a machine or a human, who with the proper training can take significant steps to ensure a safer, higher quality product,” Erik Nicholson, National Vice President of The United Farm Workers of America said in a report on BusinessInsider.com. In particular, robots don’t do well when it comes to the harvesting of fresh fruit, falling short in their inability to select ripe produce. According to the report, machines are unable to recognize produce from leaves and branches, and are blind to color and feel — which are crucial when it comes to fruit-picking. They also cannot match the dexterity and speed of human farm workers. This just goes to show that despite being functional in many ways, robots still cannot match the human touch — the necessity of which is all too underrated when it comes to farming.

Homeless man busted for breaking into Midtown church, threatening to kill all Christians

BY Shayna Jacobs Rocco Parascandola

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Thursday, June 1, 2017, 12:34 AM

A homeless man shouting “Allahu akbar” busted a Midtown church’s door with a wrench and threatened to return and shoot all Christians, police sources said Wednesday. The drama began when Noel Droni asked a 37-year-old homeless man outside the interdenominational Times Square Church, on W. 51st St., if he was a Christian on Monday, cops said. When the man told Droni he was Christian, Droni allegedly pulled a red wrench from his backpack and smashed the church’s glass door. He yelled “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is great,” and then vowed violence, police said. “I am going to blow up the church and come back and kill any Christians,” he said, according to court papers. When police arrived and arrested Droni, he refused to answer questions, authorities said. He was charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime and is being held on $1,000 bail. Droni’s lawyer, Russell Novack, said he is “confident in a satisfactory outcome.” “Other than that, I can’t discuss the facts of the case,” he added. The church did not respond to a request for comment.

Woman suicide bomber kills 30 in Iraqi market attack claimed by IS

#IraqatWar

In late May, IS attacks in Baghdad killed at least 35 civilians A woman detonated her explosive belt in a market east of the Shia holy city of Kerbala on Friday, killing at least 30 and wounding 35, Iraqi security sources said. Islamic State claimed the attack in the town of Musayab, in a statement on its Amaq news agency, without identifying the attacker. A security officer said the assailant was a woman who hid the bomb under the customary full-body veil. The attack comes as Islamic State is about to lose Mosul, the de-facto capital of the hardline Sunni Muslim group in Iraq, to a US-backed Iraqi offensive launched in October. The group is also on the backfoot in neighbouring Syria, retreating in the face of a US-backed Kurdish-led coalition attacking its capital there, Raqqa. Iranian-backed paramilitaries are taking part in the campaign fighting Islamic State in Iraq, attacking the group in the border region near Syria. Attacks in late May, also claimed by IS, killed at least 35 civilians in Baghdad. The militant group had vowed to increase attacks during the holy month of Ramadan.

Sheriff: Be Armed, Be Mentally Prepared, Make Terrorists Defend Their Lives for a Change

by AWR Hawkins9 Jun 20172,395

Florida’s Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey is urging law-abiding Americans to arm up, get familiar with their firearm, and be ready to make terrorists worry about defending their own lives, for a change. Ivey made these comments in a video he posted to Facebook in reaction to the horrendous attacks on unarmed, law-abiding Londoners. Looking at terror attacks around the world, Ivey observed: Terrorists and active shooters are using every weapon available to target citizens. Guns, knives, trucks, hammers, and even explosives have all become the weapon of choice for murderers who only have one goal–killing innocent and law-abiding citizens. It seems that almost everyday we hear of another attack taking place at a concert, tourist destination, church, business, or anywhere else in the world where they can strike fear in the hearts of citizens. He urged Americans to take their safety seriously and to determine to be “the first line of defense” against a terror attack. He stressed, “Let me be perfectly clear, doing nothing or just hoping it won’t happen to you is not going to save your life.” Ivey mentioned that officials in other parts of the world are teaching citizens that the best thing they can do is “run, hide, tell,” and he rejects that paradigm, citing the fact that “this is war” and you win a war by fighting — not by running. He points out that “terrorists and active shooters know that our citizens have been coached to run and hide, and then patiently await help.” He said attackers “count on” Americans to respond this way, then added, “What they don’t count on is being attacked themselves.” Ivey says it is time to be prepared to counterattack; to be armed and ready to make the terrorists fight to defend their own lives for a change, should they strike. Ivey said: No matter who you are or what your position is on guns, there is no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun–or a knife–is an armed and well-prepared citizen or law enforcement officer. There is no doubt that as soon as 911 is called law enforcement is on the way, however, until they arrive it is up to you and those with you to neutralize or eliminate the threat.

Declining Christianity

by Hal Lindsey

The Pew Research Center released the results of a poll last week showing a dramatic drop in the number of people who claim to be Christians in America. Over a period of only seven years, the number went down eight percentage points — from 79% to 71%. Meanwhile, the number of those who claim to be atheists, agnostics, or “nothing in particular” went up from 16% to 23%. Headlines across the nation ballyhooed the news. But closer examination shows that it’s hardly a victory for the forces of secularization. National Review’s David Paul Kuhn put the poll in perspective. “The share of Americans who identify as Christian has been declining for years,” he wrote. “The share of religious Americans has not. For about 75 years, despite periodic fluctuations, the Gallup Poll has found that approximately four in 10 Americans say they attend religious services at least once a week. Religious Americans made up the same share of the presidential electorate in 2012 as they did twelve years earlier, 42 percent.” The eight percentage point drop that Pew found comes primarily from people who weren’t serious about faith in the first place. They didn’t attend regular services, and religious faith wasn’t a big deal in their lives. Also, the old line, extremely liberal denominations continue their decline. The percentage of Americans who identify themselves as “evangelical” and/or “born again” has remained constant for a long time. That’s good news and bad. It means we’re keeping up with population growth, but not making much headway. So, it may not seem like a big deal that a few seculars stopped calling themselves Christian. But there are some disturbing factors for America. While some of the nation’s founding fathers and mothers were full-on followers of Jesus, others weren’t. What you find on close examination, though, is that in almost every case, non-believing leaders from that era in U.S. history expressed a world view that was essentially Biblical. They respected Christians and the Bible, and even if they didn’t embrace all of the Bible’s teachings, they saw it as a source of moral guidance. Secularism has fallen a long way since then. Today, the animosity of the anti-Christian, anti-Bible crowd takes your breath away. To get a glimpse of their vitriol, read the comments section on internet articles that deal with these issues. It’s all too easy to imagine some of these people cheering for the lions as they rip Christians to pieces. What would happen if Christian-haters came to be the majority, or even close to it? That’s not just a hypothetical question. We can look at history to get an idea. The French Revolution was not only a revolt against the monarchy, but against the Catholic Church. They outlawed Christianity. They stole Notre-Dame Cathedral and turned it into a “Temple of Reason.” Accounts written at the time tell of debauchery going on there that was anything but reasonable. After that, the magnificent structure was turned into a wine warehouse. It wasn’t used again as a house of worship for several decades. Similar things happened to churches all over the country during those years. In the 20th century, scores of communist countries took the ultimate step toward secularization and became officially atheist. The results were similar to those in revolutionary France. It turns out that atheism is not a tolerant or benevolent belief system. They killed, tortured, persecuted, and repressed Christians in all sorts of ways. To be fair, governments pushing religion have also been disastrous at various times in history. But American history shows a remarkable balance — tolerance and even good will for believers and unbelievers alike. Now, even though a remarkably high 71% of the nation’s adults claim to be Christians, the faith of Christ is viewed in negative ways by the media and academia. The word “Christian” began as a pejorative when it was first used at Antioch in the early days of the faith. Today the word is regaining its old taint. Without a new Great Awakening, the percentage of self-identified Christians will continue to go down. But my biggest concern is about the real Christians. There are enough of us that if we refused to watch certain kinds of television programs, most of those shows would disappear. But we rarely even complain. Christians make many of the same secular lifestyle choices as their atheist, agnostic, and “nothing in particular” neighbors. Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” [Matthew 5:14 NASB] I’ll be talking more about this poll and the implications of it on The Hal Lindsey Report that will be airing this weekend on TBN, Daystar, Word, and other outlets.

History, Precedent and Comey Statement Show that Trump Did Not Obstruct Justice

by Alan M. Dershowitz June 8, 2017 at 9:15 am

The statement may provide political ammunition to Trump opponents, but unless they are willing to stretch James Comey's words and take Trump's out of context, and unless they are prepared to abandon important constitutional principles and civil liberties that protect us all, they should not be searching for ways to expand already elastic criminal statutes and shrink enduring constitutional safeguards in a dangerous and futile effort to criminalize political disagreements. The first casualty of partisan efforts to "get" a political opponent — whether Republicans going after Clinton or Democrats going after Trump — is often civil liberties. All Americans who care about the Constitution and civil liberties must join together to protest efforts to expand existing criminal law to get political opponents. Today it is Trump. Yesterday it was Clinton. Tomorrow it could be you. In 1992, then-President George H.W. Bush pardoned Caspar Weinberger and five other individuals who had been indicted or convicted in connection with the Iran-Contra arms deal. The special prosecutor, Lawrence Walsh, was furious, accusing Bush of stifling his ongoing investigation and suggesting that he may have done it to prevent Weinberger or the others from pointing the finger of blame at Bush himself. The New York Times also reported that the investigation might have pointed to Bush himself. This is what Walsh said: "The Iran-contra cover-up, which has continued for more than six years, has now been completed with the pardon of Caspar Weinberger. We will make a full report on our findings to Congress and the public describing the details and extent of this cover-up." Yet President Bush was neither charged with obstruction of justice nor impeached. Nor have other presidents who interfered with ongoing investigations or prosecutions been charged with obstruction. It is true that among the impeachment charges levelled against President Nixon was one for obstructing justice, but Nixon committed the independent crime of instructing his aides to lie to the FBI, which is a violation of section 1001 of the federal criminal code. It is against the background of this history and precedent that the statement of former FBI Director James must be considered. Comey himself acknowledged that, "throughout history, some presidents have decided that because 'problems' come from Justice, they should try to hold the Department close. But blurring those boundaries ultimately makes the problems worse by undermining public trust in the institutions and their work." Comey has also acknowledged that the president had the constitutional authority to fire him for any or no cause. President Donald Trump also had the constitutional authority to order Comey to end the investigation of Flynn. He could have pardoned Flynn, as Bush pardoned Weinberger, thus ending the Flynn investigation, as Bush ended the Iran-Contra investigation. What Trump could not do is what Nixon did: direct his aides to lie to the FBI, or commit other independent crimes. There is no evidence that Trump did that. With these factors in mind, let's turn to the Comey statement. Former FBI Director James Comey's written statement, which was released in advance of his Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, does not provide evidence that President Trump committed obstruction of justice or any other crime. Indeed it strongly suggests that even under the broadest reasonable definition of obstruction, no such crime was committed. The crucial conversation occurred in the Oval Office on February 14 between the President and the then director. According to Comey's contemporaneous memo, the president expressed his opinion that General Flynn "is a good guy." Comey replied: "He is a good guy." The President said the following: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this thing go." Comey understood that to be a reference only to the Flynn investigation and not "the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to the campaign." Comey had already told the President that "we were not investigating him personally." Comey understood "the President to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December." Comey did not say he would "let this go," and indeed he did not grant the president's request to do so. Nor did Comey report this conversation to the attorney general or any other prosecutor. He was troubled by what he regarded as a breach of recent traditions of FBI independence from the White House, though he recognized that "throughout history, some presidents have decided that because 'problems' come from the Department of Justice, they should try to hold the Department close." That is an understatement. Throughout American history -- from Adams to Jefferson to Lincoln to Roosevelt to Kennedy to Obama -- presidents have directed (not merely requested) the Justice Department to investigate, prosecute (or not prosecute) specific individuals or categories of individuals. It is only recently that the tradition of an independent Justice Department and FBI has emerged. But traditions, even salutary ones, cannot form the basis of a criminal charge. It would be far better if our constitution provided for prosecutors who were not part of the executive branch, which is under the direction of the president. In Great Britain, Israel and other democracies that respect the rule of law, the Director of Public Prosecution or the Attorney General are law enforcement officials who, by law, are independent of the Prime Minister. But our constitution makes the Attorney General both the chief prosecutor and the chief political adviser to the president on matters of justice and law enforcement. The president can, as a matter of constitutional law, direct the Attorney General, and his subordinate, the Director of the FBI, tell them what to do, whom to prosecute and whom not to prosecute. Indeed, the president has the constitutional authority to stop the investigation of any person by simply pardoning that person. Assume, for argument's sake, that the President had said the following to Comey: "You are no longer authorized to investigate Flynn because I have decided to pardon him." Would that exercise of the president's constitutional power to pardon constitute a criminal obstruction of justice? Of course not. Presidents do that all the time. The first President Bush pardoned Caspar Weinberger, his Secretary of Defense, in the middle of an investigation that could have incriminated Bush. That was not an obstruction and neither would a pardon of Flynn have been a crime. A president cannot be charged with a crime for properly exercising his constitutional authority For the same reason, President Trump cannot be charged with obstruction for firing Comey, as he had the constitutional authority to do. The Comey statement suggests that one reason the President fired him was because of his refusal or failure to publicly announce that the FBI was not investigating Trump personally. Trump "repeatedly" told Comey to "get that fact out," and he did not. If that is true, it is certainly not an obstruction of justice. Nor is it an obstruction of justice to ask for loyalty from the director of the FBI, who responded "you will get that ('honest loyalty') from me." Comey understood that he and the President may have understood that vague phrase — "honest loyalty" — differently. But no reasonable interpretation of those ambiguous words would give rise to a crime. Many Trump opponents were hoping that the Comey statement would provide smoking guns. It has not. Instead it has weakened an already weak case for obstruction of justice. The statement may provide political ammunition to Trump opponents, but unless they are willing to stretch Comey's words and take Trump's out of context, and unless they are prepared to abandon important constitutional principles and civil liberties that protect us all, they should not be searching for ways to expand already elastic criminal statutes and shrink enduring constitutional safeguards in a dangerous and futile effort to criminalize political disagreements. The first casualty of partisan efforts to "get" a political opponent — whether Republicans going after Clinton or Democrats going after Trump — is often civil liberties. All Americans who care about the Constitution and civil liberties must join together to protest efforts to expand existing criminal law to get political opponents. Today it is Trump. Yesterday it was Clinton. Tomorrow it could be you.

NFL Star Ben Watson: Bernie Sanders 'UnAmerican' for Questioning Trump Nominee's Evangelical Beliefs

By Samuel Smith , CP Reporter Jun 9, 2017 | 2:24 PM

Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson and evangelical religious leaders from both sides of the political aisle have spoken out against Sen. Bernie Sanders' questioning of White House Deputy Budget Director nominee Russell Vought's evangelical beliefs on salvation. On Wednesday, the senator from Vermont and a self-described democratic socialist, hammered Vought during his confirmation hearing and began the exchange by citing a letter of concern from the Arab American Institute. Sanders grilled Vought about an op-ed that he wrote for the Resurgent in 2016 defending the theology of his evangelical alma mater Wheaton College during the media firestorm that ensued after it suspended a professor who argued that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Sanders criticized Vought on his belief that Muslims and other non-Christians stand condemned if they don't follow Christ. "You think your statement that you put into that publication, they do not know God because they rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned, do you think that's respectful of other religions?" Sanders asked. After Vought responded that he wrote that post on his Christian beliefs that are consistent with his college's statement of faith, Sanders called Vought's statement "indefensible," "hateful" and "Islamophobic." Sanders added: "I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who this country is supposed to be about." The exchange between Sanders and Vought caught the eye of Watson, a veteran NFL player and devout Christian who is not afraid to speak out publicly on social issues facing the country. "With all the talk about what's unAmerican, a U.S. senator attempting to disqualify a nominee because of his faith is exhibit A," Watson wrote in a Facebook post Thursday night. Watson is not the only prominent Christian figure to take to Facebook to voice their disapproval of Sanders' comments at Wednesday's hearing. "Is Bernie Sanders right? NO. Is he wrong? YES. Is Russell Vought politically correct? NO. Is he right? YES!" leading evangelist Franklin Graham wrote on his Facebook page. "Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.' End of discussion." Russell Moore, the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, called Sanders' comments "breathtakingly audacious and shockingly ignorant" of the U.S. Constitution and Christian teachings. "Even if one were to excuse Senator Sanders for not realizing that all Christians of every age have insisted that faith in Jesus Christ is the only pathway to salvation, it is inconceivable that Sanders would cite religious beliefs as disqualifying an individual for public office in defiance of the Constitution," Moore said in a statement shared by the ERLC press office. "No religious test shall ever be required of those seeking public office. While no one expects Sanders to be a theologian, we should expect far more from an elected official who has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution." Atlanta Pastor Maina Mwaura, a Democrat who no longer identifies as a member of the party, told The Christian Post on Friday that he was "disappointed" by Sanders' remarks. "I think this is one of those cases where Democrats wonder why they have such a hard time with evangelicals," Mwaura said. "Part of the problem is that they are not speaking our language and then they give evangelical Christians fuel and ammunition to provide the mistrust that evangelicals have toward them. I look at what he did a couple of days ago. Honestly, he fueled that fire." Mwaura, who has served at a number of churches across the U.S. and most recently served as missions pastor at West Ridge Church in Dallas, Georgia, asserted that this is not the first time a Democrat has fueled evangelical distrust of the Democratic Party. "If this was one of the first times, I would [likely] give them a pass. But here we are again because it happened a month or so ago with DNC Chair [Tom] Perez with his whole issue about abortion," Mwaura said. "The deal is they keep going further left and if they keep doing this, they are not going to win any election anytime soon when it comes to mainstream evangelical voters. One of the reasons why we lost in November is because of some of these comments."

Hezbollah Operatives Scouted Targets in NY, Panama: Feds

By Jonathan Dienst and Joe Valiquette

Two men with ties to Hezbollah conducted “pre-operational surveillance” on possible targets for attack in New York, as well as U.S. and Israeli embassies in Panama, federal prosecutors said Thursday. No specific plot was underway but the men were allegedly scouting the targets to assess their vulnerabilities, including LaGuardia Airport and FBI headquarters in New York. The two men allegedly received weapons and bomb-making training in Lebanon. Ali Kourani, of the Bronx, was arrested last week on the terror-related charges. Samer El Debek was arrested in Livonia, Michigan, and sent to New York last week for trial. Kourani attended Hezbollah-sponsored weapons training program starting at age 16, and lied on his immigration application, stating he had no ties to any foreign terrorist organization, the FBI said. He became a naturalized citizen in 2009. Prosecutors said Kourani was an active member of the Islamic Jihad Organization – a branch associated with Hezbollah and had traveled to China Guangzhou where Hizballah in the past had been known to obtain bomb making materials for the group. They said he also sought to buy weapons in the U.S. to send to the group. El Debek allegedly joined Hezbollah in 2008 and traveled to Lebanon for training on numerous occasions, officials said. Investigators said he undertook bomb-making training while there. Officials said in 2009 he traveled to Thailand on his U.S. passport to help clean up explosive residue left behind in a safehouse used by members of a Hezbollah backed terror cell. Alleged Mob Group Indicted Over 10,000 Pounds of Chocolate In 2011, he allegedly went to Panama to photograph the American and Israeli embassies security measures. In 2012, he went back to scout vulnerabilities of the Panama Canal, officials said. A search of Debek’s computer turned up over 250 searches for sites like “Hezbollah martyrs” and “martyrs of Islamic resistence.” Acting U.S. Attorney Joon Kim called the terrorism charges “serious,” adding Debek and Kourani "received military-style training, including in the use of weapons like rocket-propelled grenade launchers and machine guns for use in the support of the group’s terrorist mission." Kim said Kourani specifically "conducted surveillance of potential targets in America, including military and law enforcement facilities in New York City.” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said the men were involved in “pre-operational surveillance” in New York. Hezbollah is a Shia organization in Lebanon founded in the 1980s after Israel’s invasion there. With support from Iran, the group has been involved in numerous terrorist attacks – some which killed Americans. Latest Terror Attacks Put Spotlight Back on ISIS At the request of law enforcement, NBC New York did not report news of the investigation last week because officials cited ongoing security concerns connected to the case. Documents associated with the case were made public Wednesday. Debek’s family did not answer requests for comment at the Michigan home. Attempts to reach Kourani’s attorney Peggy Cross-Goldenberg and Debek’s attorney Robert Soloway were not immediately successful. Prosecutors said both men have already appeared in court and are being held without bail.

Puerto Rico goes to the polls for statehood

By Rafael Bernal - 06/07/17 06:00 AM EDT

Puerto Rico’s government is banking on a push for statehood to solve the structural issues that led to its financial crisis. Puerto Ricans will vote Sunday to decide the territory’s status. If statehood wins, as expected, the island will enact what’s known as the Tennessee Plan, an avenue to accession by which U.S. territories send a congressional delegation to demand to be seated in Washington. Puerto Rico will send two senators and five representatives, chosen by Gov. Ricardo Rosselló (D), later this year, once the plan is put into action. Statehood remains a long shot as many Republicans are wary of adding a 51st state that could add two Democratic senators and seven Democratic electors to the Electoral College. Others, noting the examples of Alaska and Hawaii, both added to the union in 1959, say it can be difficult to predict how territories will vote as states. “Those are the same people that 60 years ago said that Hawaii was going to be a super Republican state and Alaska was going to be super Democratic, and that’s why we brought them in together,” said José Fuentes Agostini, the head of Puerto Rican Republicans in the states. The Puerto Rican Republican Party is adamantly pro-statehood. And the national Republican Party has supported statehood since the 1940s, most clearly in its 2016 platform. “We support the right of the United States citizens of Puerto Rico to be admitted to the Union as a fully sovereign state,” the platform stated. “Once the 2012 local vote for statehood is ratified, Congress should approve an enabling act with terms for Puerto Rico’s future admission as the 51st state of the Union.” President Trump, who angered Puerto Ricans by decrying a potential “bailout” of their financial system on the campaign trail and as president, also indicated openness to the idea. As a candidate, he said, “The will of the Puerto Rican people in any status referendum should be considered as Congress follows through on any desired change in status for Puerto Rico, including statehood.” Puerto Rican voters in the states have predominantly voted for Democrats, translating to broad party support for statehood. Many also argue that Puerto Rico’s status as a territory is intrinsically linked to its economic challenges. “Status is a major part of the problem Puerto Rico faces all the time. In my opinion, the main problem,” said Rep. José Serrano (D-N.Y.), who was born on the island. Statehood supporters argue that territorial status has held back the island’s economy by creating a legal structure where Congress can pick and choose how national laws — most notably tax laws — apply to Puerto Rico. “The thought that is given to national policy is not applied to Puerto Rico, and then people try to come up with special deals, usually because they’re trying to save a few dollars,” said Jeffrey Farrow, a territorial expert and former White House aide. “Those special deals almost never work and almost always exacerbate the problem.” Still, the plan faces legal challenges and opposition on the island — despite the fact that Puerto Ricans in 2012 voted by a wide margin to become a state. Then-Gov. Alejandro García Padilla (D), a member of the anti-statehood Partido Popular Democrático (PPD), opposed statehood. His party and the small pro-independence party have vowed to boycott Sunday’s vote. Following the 2012 plebiscite, opponents of statehood argued that participation had not been high enough to reflect the true will of the people. Rosselló and Resident Commissioner Jenniffer González Colón (R) belong to the Partido Nuevo Progresista (PNP) within Puerto Rico. It is promoting participation in the vote. Statehood opponents are counting on the boycott to lower turnout. They say that unless 50 percent of the total voter roll approves statehood, it will not be a credible vote. According to a poll by San Juan-based newspaper El Nuevo Dia released last week, 72 percent of registered voters plan to vote, and 20 percent have already decided to boycott the election. Opposition parties say a boycott is justified because the Department of Justice (DOJ) has not approved the final ballot. Rosselló initially submitted a ballot that did not allow voters to vote to continue the status quo, only giving the option of voting for independence or statehood. Justice required Rosselló to include the status quo in a revised ballot, which he did, but the DOJ said it would not have enough time to review the revised ballot before the plebiscite. The ballot has also won attention from Congress. Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) spoke out against it, arguing it “unfairly stacks the deck in favor of statehood.” He penned a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions objecting to the ballot’s title, “Plebiscite for the Immediate Decolonization of Puerto Rico.” Wicker said that Puerto Rico has not been a colony since its annexation from Spain in 1898. Proponents of statehood insist that territorial status for 3.5 million citizens amounts to colonialism. In Washington last month, Rosselló called for an end to “500 years of colonial status” and “100 years of U.S. citizenship without full rights.” Despite opposition in San Juan and Washington, Puerto Rico’s top officials will follow through with the plan of sending a delegation to Congress, under a law signed by Rosselló on Monday, assuming statehood wins out. Whether that delegation will be received is unclear. Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) office did not return a request for comment.

Germany: Surge in Stabbings and Knife Crimes

by Soeren Kern June 6, 2017 at 5:00 am

Not only are knife-related crimes surging, but the perpetrators and victims of such crimes are increasingly younger and increasingly female. Germany's knife-crime problem is being exacerbated by its lenient judicial system, in which offenders receive relatively light sentences, even for serious crimes. In many instances, individuals who are arrested for knife-related crimes are released after questioning from police. This practice allows criminal suspects to continue committing crimes with virtual impunity. More than 1,600 knife-related crimes were reported in Germany during just the first five months of 2017 — an average of 300 such crimes each month, or ten a day. A Syrian migrant was stabbed to death in northern Germany by another Syrian because he was eating ice cream during Ramadan. The murder — which occurred in broad daylight in a busy pedestrian shopping area in Oldenburg and caused great consternation among local citizens — is not just the latest example of Sharia law being enforced on German streets. The crime also highlighted the growing epidemic of knife violence in Germany. Knives, axes and machetes have become weapons of choice for criminals in Germany, which has some of the strictest gun laws in Europe. Knives are not only being used to carry out jihadist attacks, but increasingly to commit homicides, robberies, home invasions, sexual assaults, honor killings and many other kinds of violent crime. Reliable statistics on knife violence in Germany do not exist. A search of German police blotters, however, shows that during the past ten years the number of knife-related crimes in Germany has increased by more than 1,200%. Around 4,000 such crimes were reported to police in 2016, up from just 300 in 2007. It is also impossible to determine how many of these knife crimes involved migrants. Increased censorship by the police and the media, aimed at stemming anti-immigration sentiments, makes the public incapable of knowing the names and national origins of many perpetrators or victims. The surge in knife-related violence in Germany does, however, coincide with Chancellor Angela Merkel's decision to allow in some two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The number of reported knife crimes in Germany jumped by 600% during the past four years — from about 550 in 2013 to nearly 4,000 in 2016. Police reports show that both migrants and non-migrants are responsible for the increase in knife crimes in Germany. Merkel's open-door migration policies appear to have set in motion a self-reinforcing cycle of violence in which more and more people are carrying knives in public — including for self-defense. Her policies appear to be leading to more and more stabbings, especially when alcohol is involved. Not only are knife-related crimes surging, but the perpetrators and victims of such crimes are increasingly younger and increasingly female: In Bochum, a 19-year-old woman stabbed two boys, aged 12 and 13 years. Police said the three had been arguing when the woman pulled out a knife. The boys ran away and tried to hide in a parking garage, but the woman pursued and attacked them. In Soest, a 16-year-old boy stabbed a 17-year-old classmate seven times in the chest in a dispute over a girl. The victim was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries to his heart. The assailant was released after a psychiatrist persuaded prosecutors that he could not be held responsible for his actions because he acted in the "heat of passion" (im Affekt). In Essen, two boys, aged 11 and 13, pulled a knife on a 20-year-old woman in an effort to rob her of her cellphone. She resisted and called police, who detained the attackers. In Wuppertal, a "southern looking man" (südländisches Erscheinungsbild) stabbed a 13-year-old boy after he looked at his attacker supposedly "the wrong way." In Kirchdorf, a "southerner" (südländische Erscheinung) pulled a knife on a 12-year-old girl. In Nachrodt-Wiblingwerde, a group of teenagers drew a knife on a 17-year-old girl after she "provoked" them. In Berlin-Neukölln, a 16-year-old boy was stabbed during an altercation with a 32-year-old man. In Neumünster, a 15-year-old stabbed a 19-year-old after two groups of teenagers got into an altercation. In Gevelsberg, a "dark-skinned" man (dunkelhäutig) stabbed a 14-year-old girl near the central train station as she was walking home. Some knife attacks appear to have political or religious motives: In Hanover, a 16-year-old German-Moroccan girl stabbed a police officer in the neck with a kitchen knife. Police said the incident, which occurred at the central train station, was the first jihadist attack in Germany inspired by the Islamic State. "The perpetrator did not display any emotion," a police spokesperson said. "Her only concern was for her headscarf. She was concerned that her headscarf be put back on properly after she was arrested. Whether the police officer survived, she did not care." In Prien am Chiemsee, an Afghan man stabbed to death an Afghan woman who had converted to Christianity. The attacker ambushed the woman as she was exiting a grocery store with her two children. In Munich, a man shouting "Allahu Akbar" and "infidels must die" stabbed one person to death and slashed three others in an attack at a train station. In Würzburg, on a train, an Afghan asylum seeker shouting "Allahu Akbar" attacked five people with an axe. In Oberhausen, a man shouting "Allahu Akhbar" stabbed a 66-year-old woman and a 57-year-old man who were picnicking. Knife attacks are also common during brawls involving feuding ethnic groups: In Gelsenkirchen, gangs of Syrian and Lebanese youths got into a mass knife fight in the city center. Police said that the level of violence was "brutal." In Mülheim, around 80 members of two rival Lebanese clans got into a knife fight in the center of the city. It took hundreds of police, armed with machine guns, dogs and helicopters, more than three hours to restore order. In Hanover, members of two rival Kurdish clans got into a knife fight in front of the central train station. In Mainz-Gonsenheim, several people were stabbed during a mass brawl between Syrians and Iranians. In Dortmund, an immense brawl ensued after a member of one ethnic group pulled a knife on someone from another ethnic group. In Neumünster, a 15-year-old stabbed a 19-year-old after two groups of teenagers from feuding ethnic groups got into an altercation. In Gütersloh, two men were stabbed and seriously wounded during a fight between two feuding ethnic groups. In Leipzig, an Iraqi man was stabbed and seriously injured during a massive brawl in front of a Kebab restaurant. When police tried to intervene, the mob attacked them with bottles and stones In Hamm-Herringen, two men were stabbed and seriously wounded during a fight between two feuding ethnic groups. Other knife attacks are seemingly random: In Hamburg, a 16-year-old boy and his 15-year-old girlfriend were walking along the banks of the Alster, a lake in the heart of the city, when a stranger ambushed them from behind and plunged a knife into his back. The attacker then pushed the girl into the water and walked away. The girl survived but the boy died. The suspect, a "southern-looking" (südländischer Erscheinung) man in his early twenties, remains at large. Police say the victims were not robbed and there is no evident motive for the crime: they said that the suspect appears to have randomly stabbed the boy just because he felt like it. In Bremen, a 29-year-old man was randomly stabbed and seriously wounded at the Waterfront shopping center. The entire facility was closed after the attack. In Dessau-Roßlau, two Syrian asylum seekers randomly stabbed two German female passersby in a pedestrian zone in broad daylight. In Düsseldorf, a man brandishing a machete randomly stabbed an 80-year-old man in the Kalkum district. He remains at large. In Wrohm, an Eritrean migrant randomly stabbed a 51-year-old woman. Knife-related incidents are also becoming increasingly common on public transport hubs: In Hamburg-Billstedt, two brothers were stabbed during a robbery at the Legienstraße subway station. In Frankfurt, two "presumably East Europeans" (mutmaßlich Osteuropäer) wielding knives attacked commuters at the "Bonames Mitte" subway station. In Dortmund-Bochum, two feuding ethnic groups got into a knife fight on the S-1 line. In Dresden, a man carrying a 20-centimer (8-inch) knife was arrested at the central train station. In Schönefeld, a man randomly pulled a knife on a traveler at the airport. It remains unclear how the perpetrator passed the knife through airport security. In Baden-Baden, a man wielding a knife threatened passengers on a train. Knives appear to be the weapon of choice in so-called honor killings: In Kiel, a German-Turkish man stabbed to death his estranged Turkish wife in front of a daycare center. In Bocholt, a Lebanese man stabbed to death his Moroccan wife, the mother of his three children, because he thought she wanted to divorce him. In Scheeßel, an Iraqi man stabbed to death his wife. Police described the murder as an honor killing. In Ahaus, a Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a Hindu woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances. The woman was employed at the asylum shelter where her attacker lived. In Hanover-Mühlenberg, a Serbian man stabbed his ex-girlfriend after she ended their relationship and had begun seeing someone else. In Berlin, a 32-year-old Bosnian man stabbed to death his former girlfriend after she ended their abusive relationship. In Hanau, a Syrian refugee stabbed to death his 30-year-old sister, who was 23 weeks pregnant and was accused of having brought shame to her family. Her unborn child also died in the attack. In Freiburg, a Syrian asylum seeker stabbed his wife, a Kurdish Christian who had moved out of the couple's apartment, but had returned to collect some personal belongings. In Köln-Buchheim, an Iraqi man stabbed to death his 19-year-old daughter because he did not approve of her boyfriend. The man may never face justice; he is believed to have fled to Iraq. In Bonn, a Palestinian brandishing a "Rambo knife" and shouting "Allahu Akbar" tried to behead a doctor. The attacker's 19-year-old son had complained about the doctor's treatment for a fractured leg. The man, holding the doctor down on the floor, said: "Apologize to my son. Go down on your knees and kiss his hand." Germany's knife-crime problem is being exacerbated by its lenient judicial system, in which offenders receive relatively light sentences, even for serious crimes. In many instances, individuals who are arrested for knife-related crimes are released after questioning from police. This practice allows criminal suspects to continue committing crimes with virtual impunity. In Berlin, for example, a migrant who stabbed and seriously injured another migrant after he refused to give him alcohol and drugs was released and financially compensated because no witnesses to the crime could be found. Also in the German capital, investigators discovered that Anis Amri, the 24-year-old suspect in the December 2016 Berlin terrorist attack in which 12 people died, had been involved in a knife-fight in the city's Neukölln district in July 2016, but police failed to arrest him. Had Amri been deported, as he should have been, the Berlin attack possibly could have been prevented. According to Arnold Plickert, the deputy national chairman of the GdP police union, much of the knife-violence in Germany can be attributed to certain segments of society that live according to their own rules, not those of the German state. In an interview with knife-blog.com, a German forum for knife enthusiasts, he said: "We are monitoring a specific target group, which mainly consists of young males who are armed in everyday life and basically are dedicated to armed confrontation. We see this particularly in large Arab families, Lebanese clans, for whom knives are standard gear. Knives are also basic equipment for career criminals and members of youth gangs." Plickert also noted changes in German society, including a growing disrespect for police and rescue workers: "From my point of view, I can say that the inhibition threshold to the use of violence has significantly decreased." Meanwhile, more than 1,600 knife-related crimes were reported in Germany during just the first five months of 2017 — an average of 300 such crimes each month, or ten a day. Notable knife-related incidents during the month of May include: In Freiburg, a Turkish man stabbed another Turk sitting in the passenger seat of a car stopped at a traffic light. In Karlsruhe, a Somali asylum seeker stabbed another Somali asylum seeker. Police said the attack was an act of revenge: the stabbing victim had recently stabbed the stabber. In Aachen, a North African man pulled a knife on a security guard at a grocery store after he was caught shoplifting. In Schwerin, a Syrian man pulled a knife on another Syrian man in a dispute over a 15-year-old girl who is not Syrian. In Gelsenkirchen, a 20-year-old pulled a knife on a 46-year-old man during a traffic incident. In Bad Oldesloe, four teenagers pulled a knife and robbed a 61-year-old man. In Wiesbaden, a "southern-looking" man pulled a knife and tried to rob a man at a sports complex. In Hofheim, a man with an "Eastern European accent" pulled a knife and tried to rob a store. In Peine, an asylum seeker from Sudan stabbed and seriously wounded an asylum seeker from the Ivory Coast. In Kassel, a Syrian migrant stabbed a Turkish man during a dispute over money. In Bad Reichenhall, a man stabbed another man in the neck during an altercation at a bar. In Bühl, a man stabbed several people at a public swimming pool. In Wiesbaden, a man was stabbed and seriously wounded during an altercation at a city park. In Augsburg, two men were stabbed by a random attacker at a grill fest. In Hamburg, an unknown assailant stabbed a migrant from Guinea-Bissau. In Rheine, two men speaking German with a French accent pulled a knife on a woman and robbed her. In Berlin, a man stabbed and seriously wounded his former girlfriend and her new partner during an altercation at a restaurant in Waidmannslust. In Duisburg, a man pulled a knife on a cashier at a supermarket. In Salzgitter, a man stabbed another man in a restaurant. In Freiburg, an Eastern European-looking man (osteuropäisch) stabbed a 15-year-old boy during an altercation at a restaurant. In Danndorf, three men were stabbed during an altercation over drugs. In Mölln, a man stabbed a co-worker in the back. In Michelstadt, a man stabbed another man during an altercation. In Essen, a man pulled a knife on his wife at the central train station. In Karlsruhe, a man was stabbed by his girlfriend's former boyfriend. In Cologne-Ostheim, a 16-year-old student pulled a knife on his classmates and teacher. In Neuenburg, two men were stabbed during an altercation at a restaurant. In Kassel, a man was stabbed in the neck during an altercation at a café. In Dortmund, a man was robbed at knifepoint at the central bus station. In Cottbus, members of Syrian gang stabbed five Germans. In Lich, a man was stabbed during an altercation. In Kassel, a man was randomly stabbed by a man with a "southern appearance" (südländisches Äußeres). In Preetz, a man pulled a knife on shoppers at a supermarket. In Dortmund, two men were stabbed during an altercation in the city center. In Frankfurt-Schwanheim, a man wielding a knife robbed a local post office. In Pforzheim, a 53-year-old Tajik man stabbed to death his 50-year-old wife at her place of employment, a Christian daycare center. It remains unclear if the woman was a convert to Christianity. In Wardenburg, an Iraqi man stabbed to death his wife, the mother of his five children, while she was asleep in her bed. In Tübingen, a man was stabbed and seriously injured at the central train station during an altercation. In Hamburg-St. Georg, two men were stabbed and seriously injured near the train station. In Berlin-Wedding, two brothers were stabbed during an altercation with another man at a Kebab restaurant. In Kreuztal, a 53-year-old man was stabbed and seriously wounded during an altercation at his home. In Lübeck, a 21-year-old man was stabbed and seriously injured during an altercation between two groups near the central bus station. In Diez, a woman stabbed a man in the back. In Ründeroth, a 17-year-old was stabbed and seriously wounded at a local festival. In Neuendettelsau, an Ethiopian asylum seeker stabbed his girlfriend in the stomach at a restaurant after she allegedly "provoked" him. The woman, five months pregnant, survived but the unborn baby died.

Russia says North Korea's nukes are a 'direct threat'

Published June 04, 2017 Fox News

A top Russian official said Sunday at a security conference in Singapore that North Korea’s nuclear ambitions are a “direct threat to Russia.” Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin told defense ministers and experts from 39 countries that Pyongyang’s missile defense system “has a real function.” “That is why it is alarming. And it is direct threat to Russia. We are convinced that it will increase the tensions of the region. That is our principle position," he said. Once considered a strong ally, Russia has backed fresh sanctions against North Korea. In early June, Russia’s deputy U.N. Ambassador Vladimir Safronkov reaffirmed this commitment, “the choice here has to be made in favor of using diplomatic tools to the maximum extent possible.” U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, speaking at the same conference, said that North Korea presented a "clear and present danger." The United States pushed tough new sanctions against Pyongyang Friday at the U.N. Security Council but they were ultimately blocked by China. The Security Council voted unanimously to add 15 individuals and four entities linked to North Korea’s nuclear missile programs to a U.N. sanctions blacklist.

THE "REAL" SOLUTION TO JIHADIST KNIFE ATTACKS

Sunday, June 04, 2017

So this last weekend - mid Ramadan (but the UK authorities are adamant that has nothing to do with it) - yet another series of well coordinated attacks in London. The timing was on cue, and the technology was primitive, yet the effect was successful. The weapons were simple: Aggression, Motor Vehicles, and Knives. Unless the nanny-state wishes to now castrate the aggression out of all males, prohibit all sharp instruments in an Okinawan-like decree, and force everyone to use public transportation, the ability of the state to prevent the next one is ridiculously impossible as long as the culture that advocates such things is allowed to roam free in the west. That last bit is out of the hands of normal people like us, yet we are the ones that will stand at the front line of the effects of the political decisions made by those in charge. And we will either stand as ready sacrifices to the death cult, or as combatants. Britain seems to have already chosen out of their self-imposed helplessness. Soon the west, and Europe in particular, will either find its warrior heart and embrace the old ways, or it will be bent over the table and given its fate. In this article, which I am certain will upset the "martial arts" guys, I will discuss the reality of facing a jihadist with a knife bent of "stabbing anyone they see". I will discuss "The Jihadist Vehicle Attacks" later. So here we go - 1). Forget the fantasy of empty hand defenses: Do not think for one minute that your secret Jujitsu or Kung Fu methods will guarantee you winning against a dedicated, motivated, young and fit jihadist armed with a big knife intent on killing you. Add to that his expectation of dying that day...add to that his accomplices, also armed with knives, and you get a clearer picture. And winning does not mean 7 out of 10 in the drills at the dojo...it means we want a solid chance at a 100% success rate because anything less means that you die. Your chances may be better if you have devoted your entire life to nothing but full contact martial arts training (and if your adversaries are unskilled)...but otherwise...unarmed against the knife is a very foolish match to go into. 2). Instead of going Jackie Chan, use a weapon: Yes, I know...it may mean violating the rules. As I have said...and it is almost a cliche now...we live in a time of war and we must make adjustments to the reality and accept that the authorities cannot prevent these events from taking place. So if you live in a free state, carry a firearm with you - EVERYWHERE. Ignore the sign if there is one saying you cannot. If you live in a not so free state, carry a firearm with you anyway and always obey the speed limit. If you live in a country intentionally bereft of any warrior culture, see item three. 3). Always be armed no matter the rules: "But Gabe...we live in (insert oppressed socialist state or nation here) and we can't even buy a picture of a gun here". A modern, educated man with a set of nuts in his bag will always figure out a way to be armed. No guns? OK, get your own knife. Knife versus knife is a far better proposition than unarmed versus knife is it not? My God, at the very least get a big fat stick that you can claim is a cane and that you can crush skulls with. It really is not that difficult if there is courage, and a will, and a defiant heart that denies the state's right to control your destiny. "But Gabe, the rules say I cannot have guns, knives, sticks, anything that could possibly be used as a weapon and they are about to pass laws banning ill will". When you cannot live in safety, and in obedience to the established law, a learned man will happily become a scofflaw. If you disagree with that, I really have nothing for you. Sorry...good luck. 4). Learn to be violent: This is why I am not impressed with the majority of martial arts training. Too much sport. Too much esoteric spiritual stuff. Not enough violence. We need more "martial", and less "art" - as it were. I expect that today, the Monday after the London Bridge attack, the martial arts schools in the UK (and USA) will be filled with eager soccer moms and football dads (cricket-moms and rugby-dads?) looking for the easy solution to this problem. And they will be taught esoteric stuff intended for the "perfection of character", or stuff developed for winning a match somewhere. What they need is to be taught to physically destroy their opponent, crushing windpipes, smashing skulls, breaking bones. The "real karate" that so few schools even understand much less teach. But again, see item 1. I have trained in hand to hand stuff since I was ten years old and I would prefer to not face against a knife empty handed. 5). Learn preemption: It is 2017. Are we already forgetting that there is a true social-religious-political culture living in the west...in truth invited by the west, that seeks to supplant western culture by force and attrition with its own culture? If you see a couple of strong young men, that look like they just got off the boat from Afghanistan moving aggressively toward you with knives in their hands - do we really need to have a time out to explain what their intentions are for you? This is the time to draw and shoot each one of them to the ground, not running or hiding. 6). Keep alert: All the weapons and willingness to violence will not help you in the least if you are asleep at the bar. The first part of all this is staying alert. Sit where you can see the exit, have your back covered or have an equally alert associate watching it. Look around constantly and know who is moving and what is happening. Don't want to live like that you say? Well, western nations, you should have thought about that before you invited the death cult into your country, or voted for fools that did so. You live in a time of war and you will either deny it and hope you are not selected by the next jihadist, or you accept reality and prepare to meet him. That is all. There are no secret techniques to defend against the knife by physically frail and empty handed males. It takes violence and weapons. And in that order.

Fighting Systems Of Oppression: UCLA Will Now Pay Students To Be “Social Justice Advocates”

Mac Slavo June 5th, 2017

As the warped social justice ideology has proliferating on college campuses, “bias response teams” have also multiplied. Though they were unheard of several years ago, they now exist on over two hundred college campuses. They consist of students and administrators who basically act as “speech police.” They narc on students (and encourage students to narc on each other) who are guilty of speech that isn’t sensitive or politically correct. Recently, UCLA has decided to form a bias response team consisting of 8-10 students, who the school will actually be paying to bully classmates who are guilty of thought crimes. James Allsup, a college student and reporter for TruthRevolt.com, breaks down the insanity and idiocy of this decision. When it comes to colleges spending money on dumb stuff, UCLA is setting the bar pretty high. Last week it was reported that UCLA would begin employing a fleet of students to serve as on campus social justice warriors. While actually their job title is “social justice advocates” they’ll certainly need the strength of warriors to take on all this job is asking of them. The job of these social justice advocates will be to educate fellow students about “systems of oppression.” Nothing says “I’m oppressed” like attending a school that costs anywhere from 28,000 and 51,000 dollars a year to attend, and getting on average 9,000 dollars a year from the school to do so. What exactly will these social justice advocates be fighting against? Which heads of the privileged hydra will these warriors be attempting to cut down? As reported by Campus Reform, the social justice advocates program seeks students who want to help their classmates “navigate a world that operates on whiteness, patriarchy, and heteronormativity as the primary ideologies.” These forces; whiteness, the patriarchy and heteronormativity, are being described as “systems of oppression.” Then, after identifying white people, straight people, and men as the enemy, they say that their goal is to make UCLA a “more equitable space for everyone.” Unless of course you’re a white straight man, in which case you are literally a Nazi. Those standards it turns out, are quite ironic according to Allsup. That’s because only 26% of students at UCLA are white, 56% are women, and being a school based in California, UCLA is already very friendly to students who aren’t “heteronormative.” In other words, while UCLA is working to pass on this myth that minorities are oppressed by white, straight males, their wealthy and prestigious school is actually chock full of students aren’t white, straight, or male. So who exactly is being oppressed at this school? And these policies shine a light on the real problem with political correctness on college campuses. It would be easy to place all of the blame on the students for the culture of Marxism and political correctness that has risen on college campuses. But according to Allsup, it’s the administrators on these campuses who have largely enabled the far-left to take over our schools. But to be honest, I can’t completely blame these students. College kids, especially those at left-leaning institutions like Evergreen, are always going to be acting up and making demands. It’s the job of the university administrators to be the adults in this situation. So while I do place some blame on the students, and yes on their parents, I also blame the universities. I blame the bias reporting systems, and the type of administrator who would sign off on paid social justice activists. They’re the ones who hold the real power on these campuses, and by cracking down on free speech, creating a legitimately hostile environment towards white students, male students, or students with any right-wing political beliefs, they’re using their power to embolden, encourage, and help radicalize far-left. Is it any wonder then, that our college campuses have become hives of radical leftists?

Russian President Putin: ”Have You All Lost Your Senses Over There?”

Russian President Vladimir Putin mocked conspiracy theories linking President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and his own government, asking NBC News’ Megyn Kelly whether Americans had “all lost your senses over there.” In the interview, marking the inaugural episode of NBC News’ Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, Putin faced a barrage of questions covering every aspect of the various allegations that Democrats and the media have made. He dismissed any notion that he had a close relationship with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and mocked the idea that Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had nefarious dealings through the Russian ambassador: For me, this is just amazing. You created a sensation out of nothing. And out of this sensation, you turned it into a weapon of war against the current president. Well, this is, you know, you’re just, you people are so creative over there. Good job. Your lives must be boring. Later, the mockery became more intense: Kelly: There have been questions in America about Donald Trump’s finances. He hasn’t released his tax returns. There have been questions about this secret Russian dossier, which he says is fake, but which purports to have blackmail information in it generated by the Russians. There have been questions about the communications between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. All of which has Americans asking, “Do you have something damaging on our president?” Putin: Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him. We have a lot of Americans who visit us. Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia. Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Are you all, have you all lost your senses over there? Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of famine and war. During the premiere of NBC News’ “Sunday Night” with Megyn Kelly, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he has not seen “any direct proof” of Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election. Trending article: Urban Survival Skills Are About Knowing What To Expect When SHTF Happens In A City, What Skills You Need, And What To Do In The First 24 Hours And Beyond. “I haven’t seen even once any direct proof of Russian interference in the presidential election in the United States,” Putin told Kelly through a translator. He added later, “Presidents come and go, and even the parties and power change, but the main political direction does not change. That’s why, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t care who is the head of the United States. We know more or less what is going to happen. And so in this regard, even if we wanted to, it wouldn’t make sense for us to interfere.” Putin also argued that the United States “actively interferes” with other countries’ elections. “I will tell you something that you probably already know,” he said. “I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but the United States, everywhere, all over the world, actively interferes with electoral campaigns in other countries. Put your finger anywhere on a map of the world, and everywhere you will hear complaints that American officials are interfering in internal electoral processes.” On “FOX & Friends Weekend,” Daniel Bongino said Democrats who are pushing the theory that President Donald J. Trump colluded with Russia are “embarrassing the country.”

Catholic cathedral welcomes ‘Pink Saturday’ gay pride gathering with bishop’s blessing

June 5, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The southern Dutch town of ’s-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch for short) has been chosen to host the Netherlands’ “Pink Saturday” on June 24. The capital of the historically Catholic province of North-Brabant will welcome LGBT persons from all over the country and beyond with a first-ever event: an ecumenical prayer service for participants to be held in the Catholic cathedral of Saint John the Evangelist in the presence of Bishop Gerard de Korte. The Roman Catholic bishop recently confirmed that he will give a blessing at the end of the ceremony. Gay rights groups are overjoyed. The local radio, Omroep Brabant, tweeted “Hallelujah” when the news was made public. “Roze Zaterdag” is the Dutch version of Gay Pride, including a parade with provocative and outré dress and attitudes. Nowadays, cultural, musical and other events officially organized by the host city are thrown in, usually a full week before the day of celebration. It got its name from the protest marchers that were held during Holy Week in 1979 in Limburg, the southernmost province of the Netherlands, against the “anti-homosexual” teachings of Bishop Johannes Gijsen, who was at the time one of the few non-progressive bishops in the country. “Pink Saturday” was chosen as a counterpoint to the Catholics’ White Thursday and Good Friday. At the time, Bishop Gijsen of Roermond said that practicing homosexuals could not be considered as “full members” of the Church because they could not receive the sacraments while choosing that lifestyle. Given these beginnings, the Den Bosch “Pink Saturday” will have a bitter taste of revenge, and will certainly appear to be a disavowal of what Bishop Gijsen said in the 1970s. From the start, the Dutch “Pink Saturday” was a place to push for gay rights. In progressive Netherlands, lesbians, gays, bi- and transsexuals have little left to ask for in 2017, and the event has become more festive, although there are still many gay-rights organizations present and information stands are part of the affair. The official day always opens with an ecumenical service, but up to now this had never taken place in a Catholic church, let alone a cathedral. It was, perhaps, the last place left to conquer. The choice of the cathedral of Den Bosch – the fruit of two years of talks with the local clergy and other denominations that are taking part – is a symbolic one. The last time homosexuals made themselves heard in the beautiful, flamboyant Gothic building was during a Sunday Mass in February 2010 when the then-parish priest in the village of Reusel refused to give Holy Communion to an openly homosexual “Carnival Prince.” At the time, the cathedral’s parish priest, Geertjan van Rossum, made a public statement reminding the faithful that only people who observe the Ten Commandments are admitted to Holy Communion: “Proper living out of sexuality is part of that,” he said, triggering the angry departure of the gay activists. It is the same Geertjan van Rossum who negotiated the “Pink Saturday” event in the cathedral. He will personally welcome the participants and take the lead role, surrounded by Protestant pastors and “pastoresses,” including an openly gay minister who will all speak during the ceremony. In an interview published on the “Pink Saturday” website, Father van Rossum announced that the bishop himself would take part. “Ours is a hospitable town where all citizens should be able to live with dignity and we should not make each other’s lives sour, and that is why personally, but also in the name of our Catholic parish, we want to support this initiative,” Father van Rossum said. “We want to have a nice town for all its inhabitants and all its guests. As a Christian and as a believer, I also know there are Christians and believers who belong to the LGBT community and who also want to be involved with the community of the faithful. So as a priest, together with the cathedral parish, we also want to be involved with Pink Saturday, and also with the ecumenical celebration.” Father van Rossum admits he had some “hesitation” about holding the prayer in the “Sint Jan” that has been at the center of Catholic life in Den Bosch since the Middle Ages, also as a Marian pilgrimage site where a miraculous statue of Our Lady is still venerated today. But in the end, the large Gothic vessel seemed to him the most appropriate for the reception of many participants expected to join the ceremony. Bishop de Korte has shown his acceptance of the LGBT community. His spokesman, Joos Goes, told Gay.nl that the bishop wants the Catholic Church to be an “open and hospitable institution.” “The teaching of the Church does not change,” Goes added. But he immediately relativized this reminder, saying: “We understand that people can feel shut out and be disappointed with the Church, but we think that everyone should find a spot within the community of believers. Subjects such as sexual orientation collide with the teaching of the Church, but in practice it’s often not much of a deal. Today, there are already homosexuals who are joyful members of a parish.” Bishop de Korte is known for his opposition to traditionally-minded Cardinal Wim Eijk of Utrecht, who has called homosexuality “mutual masturbation.” When De Korte took possession of his see in 2016, he abundantly quoted Pope Francis, calling for a Church that is prepared to be “dirty,” and for “bridges, not walls.” The Dutch press is already comparing his “openness” with Pope Francis’ style. “Pink Saturday” will also have events in the small town of Oss next to Den Bosch. Its parish priest, Father Cor Mennen, well known as a conservative Catholic blogger, published a critical post reminding the faithful of the teaching of the Church as exposed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. “This moral standpoint is clear. It does not mean that the Church rejects the homosexual faithful. They can be members of the Church and take part in Church life. The Church does ask her faithful to be prepared in an upright manner to live according to her morals, which come straight from the Bible and natural moral law,” he wrote. But, he added, “It is against Catholic belief, and therefore not pastoral, morally to approve of homosexual acts or to do as if it were a normal variant of human sexuality.” This is exactly what “most homosexual organizations” are after, he says – which explains their demand for a celebration in the “Sint Jan” cathedral. “They want to conquer the last bulwark that is holding fast to the scriptural disapproval of homosexual activity and of all acts that go against natural moral law,” he explained. He goes on to say that friendliness cannot justify a celebration that not only appears to condone the homosexual lifestyle but scandalizes “normal Catholics who want to remain true to the Church’s teaching, not least those homosexuals who make the effort of living chastely in accordance with it.” He concluded: “It is certainly no coincidence that on June 24th, the Church celebrates the day of the birth of Saint John the Baptist. John was beheaded by King Herod because he reproached him his immoral behavior – Herod was living with his brother’s wife. He who stands up for God’s laws seldom reaps applause.”

Five reasons why Israel should care about the Qatar crisis

By Seth J. Frantzman June 5, 2017 16:05

Israel's image in the region likely can improve amid the current developments.

1. It hurts Hamas Qatar has supported Hamas over the last decade and hosted former Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal in Doha for the last five years. In 2012, Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani visited Gaza and pledged hundreds of millions of dollars for the strip. Qatar therefore provided Hamas with not only a home in Doha but financial support and diplomatic succor. The new pressure on Qatar has encouraged it to expel Hamas members and will reduce its support for the group. This may also isolate Turkey’s relations with Hamas. Qataris are now focused on which airlines will still fly to the country tomorrow; spending money on the Gaza Strip and hosting Hamas may seem like a liability they don’t need now. Hamas will find itself with even fewer allies, which could give Israel leverage to encourage the group to change its ways. More likely, Hamas may lash out against Israel to show its relevance. 2. It brings Israel closer to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the Gulf Israel has shared interests with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states in opposing Iran. Because Qatar has supported Hamas, the new crisis encourages those states that oppose Qatar to see Israel as a partner against Hamas and Iran. This relationship has already been quietly growing in recent years, but the crisis with Qatar allows writers in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf to speak out more strongly against Hamas. Saudi Arabia’s Al Arabiya has even showcased interviews with Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot. The background of the current crisis was a feeling that US President Donald Trump’s speech to “drive out” terrorism gave a blank check to local states to act. Under Barack Obama, Israel sometimes felt isolated, especially as the US pursued the Iran deal. Now Israel feels that the Americans are back in the region and will stand by their allies. 4. It delegitimizes terrorism The regimes that have broken relations with Qatar pay lip service to fighting terrorism and instability. Israel prefers a stable region without terrorist groups undermining neighboring states. However, there is ISIS in Sinai, Hamas in Gaza, jihadists near the Golan and Hezbollah in the Golan and in Lebanon. In that sense, Israel knows that any greater instability can be a threat. So long as Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and other states work in concert, the winds of stability will blow in Israel’s direction as well. The saying “all ships rise with the tide” is apt. All stable countries in the region will rise if extremist groups are reduced. 5. It bolsters Israel’s hand in general and Israel’s government in particular Israel benefits when it is not the center of attention and certainly when it is not under pressure. This is a boon for the government. This is because Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long spoken about working toward quietly cultivating regional relationships beyond Egypt and Jordan that stretch to the Gulf. He has spoken about the Iranian threat for two decades. If the Arab states are more concerned with Iran and Qatar than they are with the Palestinians, that takes pressure off of Israel at a time when Palestinians are trying to remind the region that they are facing 50 years of living under Israel’s military rule. Over the years, Israel has gone from being seen as the center of the region’s problems to today, when the Palestinian issue is dwarfed by larger conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya – and now – in the Gulf. That plays into Netanyahu’s narrative and takes the wind out of any sails that hoped the passage of 50 years since 1967 would have some sort of jarring affect. This will have some blowback because voices in the region will accuse the Gulf states and Saudis of working “for Israel.” Syria and Iran already accuse them of working with Israel. But these voices already oppose to Israel, which means its image in the region can likely improve amidst the current crisis.

Paris police shoot man who attacked officer outside Notre Dame Cathedral

Suspect shot and injured by police after trying to attack officer with hammer outside cathedral in French capital

Kim Willsher in Paris Tuesday 6 June 2017 11.20 EDT First published on Tuesday 6 June 2017 10.50 EDT

French police have shot a man who attacked an officer with a hammer outside Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The assailant, later found to be also armed with kitchen knives, was brought down as he threatened passersby outside one of the French capital’s busiest tourist attractions on Tuesday afternoon. Hundreds of people took refuge in the cathedral and nearby cafes as more than 100 police officers rushed to the scene. The French interior minister, Gérard Collomb, said the attacker, whose ID suggests he is an Algerian student, was carrying “rudimentary weapons” and shouted “this is for Syria” as he hit the 22-year-old police officer. The minister visited the prefecture of police, 50 metres from the scene of the attack, to talk to officers involved in the incident. He said the man approached a police patrol from behind at about 4.20pm on Tuesday, took a hammer out of his backpack and hit one of the officers in the head. “His colleague reacted with sang-froid and fired to ensure the attacked officer was not further injured,” Collomb said. “I understand the police officer was only slightly injured but it could have been much worse if their colleague had not reacted so quickly. The attacker was injured and we are waiting for the prognostic. “Once again the police and forces of security, in our country like other countries in Europe, are victims of an attack in the name of a criminal ideology. We see here we have passed from a sophisticated terrorism to one where the most ordinary tools can be used. “The attacker is thought to be an Algerian student, carrying a card that we have to verify authenticity that’s all we know right now.” Collomb said the government was considering renewing the state of emergency, in place since the bombings and shootings in Paris in November 2015 that left 130 dead. “The fight against terrorism is a priority for the president of the republic,” he said, adding that a defence meeting would be held at the Élysée Palace on Wednesday morning. The attack came just three days after three knife-wielding men drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing people at restaurants and bars near Borough Market, leaving seven people dead. The Notre Dame incident was the latest in a series of attacks on French police and soldiers. One officer was shot dead by a gunman on the Champs Élysées in April. In February, an Egyptian man caused panic near the Louvre when he ran at soldiers with a machete. A month later, a suspected Islamist terrorist wrestled a soldier to the ground and grabbed their gun as they patrolled Orly airport, before being shot dead. In January 2015, a day after the attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, a police officer was killed by a gunman who later took hostages in a Jewish supermarket, killing four. In June 2016, a French police officer and his wife, who worked for the interior ministry, were murdered in their home in front of their toddler son in an attack claimed by Islamic State. French anti-terrorist investigators have opened an inquiry into Tuesday’s attack.

Supernatural Miracles Combating Suicides in the Most Unlikely Place

12:00PM EDT 6/5/2017 Jessilyn Justice

Tumors vanished. Marriages restored. Souls healed.

Revival is breaking out as hearts unite with God as He restores what everyone thought was lost. More than 2000 soldiers have graduated from the program, and not a single person has committed suicide, a rampant epidemic stealing the lives of 20 of their peers every single day. "Faith impacts everything we do," says Evan Owens, executive director of REBOOT Combat Recovery. "As Christians, we are all called to be a bridge, be a people who lay down their lives so other people can cross. We're not experts, but what we can do is say, 'God, I'm here and I lay down my life to help my fellow man.' That's our role, to lay down our lives again and again." Owens' wife, Jenny, founded the program in 2011 to serve and heal combat veterans and their families after the trauma of war. The more than 2000 graduates experienced more than mental health treatment; they've been supernaturally healed of soul wounds often suppressed by the violent reality of nonstop war. Together, the Owenses battle spiritual warfare and follow prophecy to serve their fellow man. In one prophetic word, a preacher called on Owens from the pulpit. "He talked about the gifts in our lives that we had put on shelves, that it was time for us to step out in leading others in faith, to take them off the shelf to lead people. He said it involves [us] traveling and helping hurting people in small communities across country." Now, REBOOT meets mostly in churches with church members as the support staff. REBOOT provides the materials and local believers volunteer to walk with the veterans through a 12-week process. The entire program fulfills a prophetic vision one young lady gave Evan a few months after REBOOT's birth. "She approached me, and there was this lion thing she was talking through," Evan says. "She said it was an opportunity to do something, but there would be a season of frustration before it. I thought it sounded a little hocus-pocus, that we needed to verify because it was so generic. Then, low and behold, crazy stuff started happening that wasn't biased, and I couldn't have made this up! This is pretty wild ... We were given specific access to open doors that no one said was possible. We were told that with the open doors, we should sprint through it, and more doors would open." Revivals broke out. Small groups soon ballooned to more than 50 as people came in off the street and saw the raw power of God. Men and women who had lost the ability to walk had their steps restored; someone with speech atrophy found words again. But the most impressive miracles were those in the heart. "You could visually see their countenance change, like very tangible change," Evan says of watching spouses and families forgive one another. One woman attended the group with her ex-husband as he battled post-traumatic stress disorder. Through the program, the couple fell in love again, God restored their marriage and they said their vows once more while wearing REBOOT T-shirts. God is moving, Evan says, and He's using His people to bring about restoration. In 2014, the latest year available, more than 7,400 veterans took their own lives, accounting for 18 percent of all suicides in America. Veterans make up less than 9 percent of the U.S. population, according to the Military Times. "The war we fight is not against flesh and blood. For many service members, the war doesn't end when they come home. The battle continues against an unseen enemy who is attacking their mind and spirit. And in too many cases, the enemy is winning," the REBOOT website says. But with God, through the church community, Satan is losing ground. "It's really, really wild," Evans says.

It Is Treason, Not Espionage! 'It Is Time For A Clean Sweep' As Arrest Of Leaker Shows Systematic National Security Failures

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

The Trump administration has made it abundantly clear that they would be targeting those with top secret security clearance that have been feeding the MSM with classified materials and on Monday, June 5, 2017, a federal government contractor in Georgia was officially charged with "removing and mailing classified materials to a news outlet." WHEN OLD NEWS IS TREATED LIKE A BOMBSHELL 'NEW" REPORT Reality Leigh Winner, formerly Sarah Winner, is a contractor that was employed by a contractor Pluribus International Corporation, holding Top Secret clearance, she accessed information, printed it out, then mailed it to the website The Intercept. While we will get into more of what has been uncovered about Reality Winner later in the article, first we will deal with the "bombshell" news being treated as if it were new, when in reality, was reported on back in October 2016. Via The Intercept: RUSSIAN MILITARY INTELLIGENCE executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election, according to a highly classified intelligence report obtained by The Intercept. The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light. While the document provides a rare window into the NSA’s understanding of the mechanics of Russian hacking, it does not show the underlying 'raw' intelligence on which the analysis is based. A U.S. intelligence officer who declined to be identified cautioned against drawing too big a conclusion from the document because a single analysis is not necessarily definitive. No argument that obtaining the actual documents was a scoop for The Intercept, but the news that "Russia" tried to hack the election was reported by CNN and others back in October, yet when clicking the old article about the issue, we see "updated June 5, 2017," with no mention in the article that it was originally published in October 2016, as shown clearly in the URL itself, which reads "http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/12/politics/florida-election-hack/index.html ." So basically CNN, who was recently caught staging news, decided it would be a good idea to change the date on an old article, republish it as new and act like it is breaking news. Yeah, that is going to help their "credibility" issues. NOT. While liberals and Democrats across the Internet are acting like this is a "AHA! moment, Cybersecurity reporter for left-leaning Politico, who is definitely not a Trump fan if his Twitter feed is anything to go by, has done a good job of highlighting "the intrusion into VR Systems is the same hack first reported by CNN in October," as well as adding additional messages to explain how this isn't exactly breaking news, nor a smoking gun for liberals to claim the "election was hacked," by stating "NOTE that Russia couldn't change votes simply by hacking VR Systems or local election officials' personal computers." (Source) While the prevailing "official" narrative from the MSM and the Intel community has relentlessly worked to place full blame on Russia, it is only fair to note that when the Wikileaks Vault 7 CIA hacking tools were exposed, part of them proved ""With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the "fingerprints" of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from. UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques." (Via Zero Hedge) In other words, our intelligence community can lay false footprints in order to blame anyone they want to officially blame. This was also highlighted in the recent Megyn Kelly interview with Russia President Vladimir Putin when he told Kelly that specialists could make attacks appear as if they came from her own children. Putin went on to point out the problem isn't Russia it is American politics. At one point during the interview Putin also likens the "blame Russia for everything" mindset with anti-Semites, saying "It reminds me of anti-Semitism. A dumb man who can't do anything would blame the Jews for everything." The point here is that Americans have been lied to by the MSM and our own intelligence communities about so much and so often, we truly may never know if Russia did indeed attempt to hack our elections or if our intel agencies framed him. While we may never know who was ultimately behind the attempted hacks, Putin's point that what the information revealed were the actions of the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and no one rigged the Democratic primary except the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and no one wrote the emails that Wikileaks released except members of the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Point for Putin for reminding people of those inconvenient facts. According to the Department of Justice website on June 5, 2017, "A criminal complaint was filed in the Southern District of Georgia today charging Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a federal contractor from Augusta, Georgia, with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet, in violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 793(e)." Winner was arrested by the FBI at her home on Saturday, June 3, 2017. The six-page criminal complaint affidavit can be found here. US criminal code Winner is being accused of violating, is from the Title 18, Chapter 37 Espionage and Censorship, where 793(e) states : "(e) Whoever having unauthorized possession of, access to, or control over any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, or note relating to the national defense, or information relating to the national defense which information the possessor has reason to believe could be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation, willfully communicates, delivers, transmits or causes to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted, or attempts to communicate, deliver, transmit or cause to be communicated, delivered, or transmitted the same to any person not entitled to receive it, or willfully retains the same and fails to deliver it to the officer or employee of the United States entitled to receive it.... Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both." This arrest comes just days after the New York Post reported that the Justice Department has gotten a warrant from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, (FISA) to conduct electronic surveillance on a group of journalists who’ve been the recipient of leaked information, but the journalists themselves are not the targets, those leaking classified information to the MSM are the ones in the crosshairs. While the woman just charged does not fall into that category, it does highlight the fact that U.S. intelligence agencies learned absolutley nothing from Edward Snowden, as they still do not have the protective measures in place to prevent outside contractors from obtaining classified information, and distributing it to journalists. LEAKER IS ANTI-TRUMP, ANTI-WHITE, BLM SUPPORTING, BERNIE RESISTANCE MEMBER While we are now seeing the Trump administration aggressively going after leakers, a series of very disturbing facts are already being uncovered about the woman charged, Reality Winner, which brings up the question of what type of vetting do companies that contract for the government perform on their employees, especially those handed out clearance to view Top Secret information. According to the DOJ statement on the arrest, Winner had been employed by Pluribus International Corporation since on or about February 13, 2017. A look at some of her social media accounts, by this person employed as a contractor and given access to Top Secret classified information, including her Twitter account under her former name Sara Winners, shows her suggesting to Kayne West that he make T-Shirts saying "being white is terrorism," responding to a tweet by President Trump saying "@realDonaldTrump the most dangerous entry to this country was the orange fascist we let into the white house," offering support to the Iranian foreign minister telling him "If our Tangerine in Chief declares war, we stand with you!," and tweeting supportive messages to Black Lives Matter. See more of her anti-American, anti-white rhetoric at Ralph Retort, who asks the question how" did this person have Top Secret security clearance?" (Warning Ralph Retort used much more colorful language in asking that question.) Also, it seems she was highly critical of President Trump's travel ban, as she highlighted an article and she used the hashtag "TrumpIsAC*nt. That was a small portion of her public Twitter comments, she also has been quoted from Facebook for going off on a "white privilege" rant back in November 2016. The Blaze reports that Winner is also a left-wing activist with ties to Muslim groups, supportive of the Woman's March aka the "Vulgar Vagina March, on inauguration weekend, and the Daily Caller reports that she is part of the so-called "Resistance" and an avid Bernie Sanders supporter. Her Facebook page shows that even as a government contractor, with Top Secret clearance, she was publicly calling the president a "piece of sh*t." Which brings us right back to the question of how on earth did this woman obtain Top Secret clearance??? Her digital footprint spans from before the election until after Trump was inaugurated, so the company that employed her could have easily seen who they were hiring before employing her, and just as easily could have uncovered the snake in their midst from her social presence after they employed her. BOTTOM LINE This goes beyond just the leaking of information to the MSM as this latest arrest shows a systematic failure to properly vet companies that contract out to the government, the employees of those companies, as well as the incompetence in her being allowed to print out classified and/or Top Secret information, then manage to get it out of her work place. I understand President Trump inherited a system that was already in place, but this arrest, the leaking of Top Secret information by a contractor, even after the whole Snowden affair, proves without a doubt that the whole system needs an over-haul, from dumping the deep state actors and Obama holdovers from the intelligence communities, to investigating the procedures and type of vetting employees recieve at any and all contractors that have access to classified information. Furthermore, the leakers should not just be charged under the Esionage Act, but as recent polling shows, 53 percent of all Likely U.S. Voters still consider the leaking of classified information to the media to be an act of treason, and that is what they should be charged with. Winner's intent was not to provide "new" knowledge, as her social media presence shows her intent was to harm the administration in any way she could because she hated Trump, which isn't "whistleblowing" where there are proper channels to provide Congress with information, this is outright treason and the charges against Winner should reflect that. It is time for a clean sweep.

Breaking: A Hillary Conviction Is Being Offered Up In Deal Between Deep State and Trump

By Dave Hodges

They say that little things come in small packages. This will be one of the most concise and condensed articles that I have ever written. However, it may prove to be one of the most important I have written, since I broke the Benghazi mutiny story almost 5 years ago. Please note the caption in the picture above. Obviously, Hillary did not become President. However, she is going to jail for her actions in pursuit of the office. Hillary Clinton Is Being Offered Up As a Sacrifice by the Deep State I was told by very reliable inside sources that Jeff Sessions was closing in on the alleged pedophilia allegations against John Podesta and Hillary Clinton and this was going to prove doable because Anthony Weiner and possibly Huma Abedin were going to turn State’s evidence. Weiner is taking his chances in jail (27 months). However, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, is closing in, with the foreign support of President Duterte and Vladimir Putin on child-sex-trafficking emanating out of the United States’ elite Deep State. Yesterday, even Putin said the Deep State assassinated John Kennedy. And with each passing day, and with each child-sex-trafficking arrest, the Deep State risks more exposure to both their existence as a shadow government and their true nature. The light of day is something that Deep State will not permit, so a deal is being made which will be revealed in the final paragraphs of this article. The Sources Since the election of Donald Trump, I have been receiving information from an FBI employee (nonspecific) and two State Department employees. One of the State Department employees and the FBI employee must remain anonymous. One State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski and she can provide confirmation to the some of the ancillary revelations in this article. Clinton Will Be Offered Up On a Platter Yesterday, I read no less than six articles in which DNC officials want Hillary to just go away. The fact that these stories were released on the same day is not a coincidence. this is part of the deal that has been made between Donald Trump and members of the Deep State. This is the primary reason why former FBI director, James Comey, was fired when he was. His loyalty to Clinton was a threat to this arrangement. Here are the links to a few of these stories emanating from the DNC and the media who are distancing themselves from Hillary.

http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/hillary-clinton-dazzles-memorial-day-crowds-her-favorite-anti-seizure-glasses/ri19988 

Remember? Hillary was not supposed to be ill. Where did this come from? Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, Bill Clinton, and James Comey’s brother (runs finances for the Clinton Foundation) are under FBI investigation as I write these words. The tips to Jeff Sessions were provided by sources close to Clinton, presumably, Deep State operatives. Hillary will very likely go to jail, or at minimum receive a suspended sentence and pay a big fine. I have been told that the Clinton Foundation will cease to exist in its present form. Some may remember that I broke the story, from my same sources, that Podesta had been caught converting Clinton Foundation assets to gold, art, etc., and then hiding these assets. I stated at the time, that Hillary knows that RICO will soon come knocking and that total asset forfeiture will occur. Podesta is trying to stay one step ahead. Clinton Will Not Go Down for Child Trafficking, Drug Dealing, Money Laundering or Gun Running The Deep State is feeling the heat because the most prominent members of the Independent Media have been relentless in their pursuit of these activities, especially child-sex-trafficking. I was told by my sources that the Deep State, even with the support of the media, cannot contain these revelations. They do not want a sleeping public to be aroused by a story that would dwarf Watergate. To the best of my knowledge, this has not hit the mainstream media, yet, but it will very soon. Hillary is being investigated by the FBI for “pay for play” and misusing her authority as the Secretary of State to get Lois Lerner, IRS director at the time, to prosecute an African national government official who is living inside the United States if this African official does not help stop the investigation into a government official from Bangladesh who participated in pay for play with regard to the Clinton Foundation. There is a second African nation that is subject to this investigation, as well, for the same reasons. I have agreed to not release the identity of the second nation because it is too close to one of my sources. Please note that Hillary will be going down for “pay for play” and not drug dealing, gun running nor child-sex-trafficking. She will also be charged with malfeasance of office with regard to the IRS issue. In exchange, Trump gets to purge much of the Deep State that is embedded in the FBI and the State Department. All three sources, including Weslowski have told me that their supervisors have cleaned out their desks. Many are taking retirement. In Monika Wesolowski’s case, her supervisor and her supervisors two levels up are all leaving. Monika said that her office is almost empty. The purge is already beginning. Conclusion This story is a work in progress and there will be updates. I chose to publish what I know at this point because I wanted to get out in front the mainstream media spin that will undoubtedly be coming in order deceive the public. I asked the question, “Does this mean that Trump is backing off of child-sex-trafficking?” Nobody is certain. Please note that the allegations that will be coming Hillary’s way will have nothing to do with the big three criminal activities of the Deep State. One final note, Wasserman-Schultz, according to my FBI source, better have lots of body guards because in trying to distance herself from the related Seth Rich murder, she is bringing the same kind of attention that the Deep State is trying so hard to avoid. I will be offering counterpoints to the MSM as this story about pay for play begins to break in the MSM. I am also producing a video which validates the claim that Hillary has been “ditched” by DNC leadership. Finally, we now know why Hillary was not prosecuted by Trump for the emails when he took office.

Gay Progressive ‘Christians’ Are Destroying Christianity

By Nate Brown - 06/05/2017

The Christian identity, a relationship with Jesus Christ, requires that one forsake himself, and take up his cross, and follow Him. However, gay progressive Christians are instead, placing themselves before God. Crystal Cheatham, who had grown up attending and singing at a Seventh-day Adventist church, was about to graduate from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan when she was warned that she couldn’t be gay and Christian. However, instead of listening to both the Word of God and her Church elders she defied the authority of Scripture and proceeded to pull other believers down the very same path; “When I came out, I was told by ministers so far above me that I couldn’t be an out lesbian and also be on the stage as a leader, and it crushed me. It crushed me so hard,” she said. “I felt like I was at an impasse at the road in my life and I had to decide between this love for my God and my personal identity.” At that impasse, according to scripture, Christians are to deny themselves and follow Jesus Christ. However, some progressive Christians are not recognizing the authority that is the eternal Word of God, and therein lies the problem. Now an activist and writer, Cheatham has set out to create a digital space for LGBTQ people to explore their own spiritual practice without having to surrender any part of their identity. She is leading the effort to create Our Bible, an app set to release this fall that plans to offer at least 20 Bibles and more than 300 devotional readings, meditation exercises, articles and podcasts for LGBTQ Christians and others who feel marginalized by mainstream Christianity. According to the 2014 Religious Landscape Study by the Pew Research Center, which surveyed 35,000 people who identified as LGB and found that 48 percent of them identified as Christian, with the largest portions of that group identifying as Protestant (29 percent) and Catholic (17 percent). As a Christian, we are to die to our own self and ego, to take up the Cross and give our entire being to following the one and only, the great I Am. To act like we come before Christ is a great sin, spiritual change must take place; if not, then God says what will happen in Revelation 3:16 – “Therefore because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, it will come to pass, that I shall spew thee out of my mouth.” The spiritual change in reference is derived from both Repentance and the gift of the Holy Spirit, but there is a deeper problem that persists; Christians are not taking the Word of God literally, and therein lies another problem. Because some Christians forsake the authority of the Word of God, they are not recognizing or even experiencing His Word, rather they are pushing the outward appearance, and good works without having a changed heart. Fewer than one in four Americans now believe that the Word of God, the Bible, is the literal Word of God. That number is similar to the 26% who view it as “a book of fables, legends, history and moral precepts recorded by man.” The disbelief is record breaking according to the Gallup-polls four-decade trend that biblical literalism has not surpassed biblical skepticism. Even further, about half of Americans — a proportion largely unchanged over the years — fall in the middle, saying the Bible is the inspired word of God but that not all of it should be taken literally. The Gallup poll showcases that only 24% of Americans believe that the Bible is the literal Word of God. To believe that the Bible is not the literal Word of God, gives man power over the Word to manipulate it, derive false meanings, and in some cases act like the Bible is a book of mythological tales. Mans interpretation of scripture is the heart of the confusion on so many topics that are made clear in the Bible, one of those Biblical truths that gets increasingly bent is gender. In Christianity, there are two genders, a man, and a woman, lest we forget that, we have forgotten He who created the world, in Christianity, according to the Word of God there is only one way people can be married; one man and one woman. Nothing more and nothing less, any alteration to that is blasphemy as it adds to Scripture and destroys the authority of the Word. Prayer is needed to combat the confusion society tries to place over the hearts and emotions of everyone, as well as the ideological confusion of gender in culture.

The US Needs to Consider N. Korea’s Secret Weapons Before Attacking

By Dave Hodges

An attack upon North Korea is imminent. As I noted this past weekend, all the pieces are in place. But perhaps, we might want to be a little less aggressive with North Korea because it could be possible we are grossly underestimating the power of a country that has no industry other than to build devastating weapons. Why should we reconsider attacking North Korea? Let’s take a look at World War II history for the answer to that question. A Lesson From World War II After the conclusion of World War II, the Japanese were discovered to have developed several secret weapons that the Americans were not aware of and the only reason that these weapons were not employed was because of the dropping of two atomic bombs. Here are a couple of examples of these devastating weapons. Unit 731 and the Use of Bioweapons “From 1937 until the end of the war, the Japanese experimented with various biological weapons, including the toxic defoliation bacilli bomb (a precursor to Agent Orange) and the flea bomb used to spread bubonic plague. The Imperial Japanese Army’s notorious Unit 731 — a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit — performed tests on human subjects with Bubonic plague, cholera, smallpox, botulism, and other diseases. Japanese soldiers used these bombs to to launch biological attacks, infecting agriculture, reservoirs, wells, and other areas. According to Sheldon H. Harris, a historian at California State University in Northridge, more than 200,000 Chinese were killed in germ warfare field experiments. His work also shows that plague-infected animals were released toward the close of the war, which caused “outbreaks of the plague that killed at least 30,000 people in the Harbin area from 1946 through 1948.” Some Japanese scholars contest these figures, but they’re probably accurate. An unidentified victim of Unit 731. (Image: China-Underground via Government of Japan) And as noted by historian Antony Beevor, the Japanese also planned to these weapons against American soldiers in the Pacific theater, along with delivering disease-carrying balloon bombs to the United States. They even had a plan in the summer of 1945 to use kamikaze pilots to dump plague-infected fleas over San Diego.This is only one of several secret weapons possessed by the Japanese that would have brought holy terror to the United States. And the existence of these weapons were unknown to the US. The North Korean Threat Readers might be wondering why I am bringing up World War II history. The lesson from history is straightforward and simple. An adversary can possess unknown but lethal weapons. North Korea is such a nation and China and Russia have been their benefactors in the development of one such super weapon, an EMP. Sophisticated computer hackers, like the ones from North Korea, now have the ability to generate such an effect on our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities. Some insider sources have concluded that there is a significant danger to America from North Korean hackers far beyond the disruption of our movies and corporate accounts that they have hacked. I have learned that sophisticated computer hackers, like the ones from North Korea, have the ability to generate an EMP effect on our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities. One has to remember that North Korea is a proxy state of China. And China is preparing for war against the US in the South China Sea. North Korea may be firing the first shots of WW III It is coming, it is just a matter of time. Congress Investigates, Talks and Delivers Nothing Periodically, a d0-nothing congressional committee pretends to take a look at the threat to the US posed by both an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear weapon and a naturally occurring geomagnetic disturbances (GMDs). Every time Congress convenes such a worthless committee, nothing productive happens. Congressional Ineptitude As late as May 4, 2017, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources took held a meeting and took testimony from witnesses whose testimony ranged from frightening the committee and reassuring the members of Congress. Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich testified and clearly stated that an EMP attack “one of the three great threats to our survival,” on par with cyberwarfare and nuclear weapons. “Here we are gambling our civilization,” Gingrich stated. Gingrich’s statements paralleled the former director of the SDI, Henry Cooper, is calling for an Aegis antiballistic missile system in the Gulf of Mexico to address the threat of an EMP weapon carried aboard an orbiting satellite. Interestingly, and according to several sources of whom I have consulted with, North Korea has two such satellites that meet over Kansas several times per day. Take a look at the following graph about how far the effects of a high altitude nuclear explosions would extend. Please note the date of the report emanating from Congress. This map is 20 years old and we still have not done a thing about mitigating the problem. And it is not just a terrorist attack that we have to worry about. A GMD is a naturally occurring event which can be caused by a simple solar storm, such as a flare or coronal mass ejection. An EMP weapon can be created by detonating a nuclear weapon miles above Earth’s surface. The effects upon our grid of a GMD and an EMP are identical. A D0-Nothing Worthless Congress We have seen at least two notable GMD events in American history. In 1989, Quebec had a very close call as a GMD, caused by a coronal mass ejection temporarily took down the Quebec’s grid for nine hours. Quebecc was lucky. In 1859, a much bigger solar storm known as the Carrington event, destroyed telegraph lines across the US. If this event happened today, it would mark the end of our country as we know it. In 2012 NASA detected a solar storm that, had it occurred a week earlier, might have triggered a Carrington-type of event. In other words, our Congress is aware of these events, has flirted with disaster and as usual, has done nothing productive. In 2004 a congressional commission reported that a single EMP unleashed high above the Midwest, would destroy the nation’s economy and eventually kill 90% of the population. In 2008 the same commission wrote in its report that Russia, China, and North Korea were working to develop EMP weapons. And still Congress did absolutely nothing. Conclusion How devastating would an EMP attack be? Is there anything the US can prepare to counter? There are provable and correct answers to these questions and they will be covered in the next installment of this series. In the meantime, it might behoove President Trump to delay any aggressive military action against North Korea.

Moo-dunnit? Mystery as a herd of 12 cows jumps to its death off of a 50-metre Swiss cliff

Thirteen cows jumped or fell off a cliff in Valais, Switzerland on Wednesday

Twelve of the cows died in the fall, while the 13th survived the 50metre drop

In total, the cows were believed to be worth around 20,000 francs (£16,000)

The couple who own the land said the cows may have been chased by a predator

Four yaks, who were also on the land, did not suffer any injuries from predators

Farmers in Switzerland have been left baffled after a herd of cows jumped to its death off of a 50metre-high cliff last week. The 13 Herens cows broke through their pen and through several lines of security around their pasture before running toward a cliff and either falling or throwing themselves off of the 50metre drop near Levron in Valais on Wednesday. Twelve of the cows died in the fall, while the 13th survived. The surviving cow, which likely landed on the others at the bottom of the cliff, was injured and taken to an animal hospital in Bern. In total, the cows were believed to be worth around 20,000 francs (£16,000).

The president keeps a solemn promise to put America first

By Wesley Pruden - The Washington Times - Thursday, June 1, 2017

Uncle Sugar doesn’t live here any more, and he didn’t leave a forwarding address. This is the message, spoken loud and clear by Donald Trump Thursday in the White House Rose Garden, and it’s just now getting through to the easy riders out there. “As of today,” he said, “the United States will cease all implementation of the non-binding Paris accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country. We’re getting out but we’ll start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.” This was exactly what the 196 signers needed to hear, and the president told them without heat, bombast or blather. Just the facts, ma’am, and that means Madame Merkel. Before all the news from Washington was in, Madame Merkel, with France and Italy tagging along in the lady’s considerable wake, said in haughty voice that the Paris accord “will not be renegotiated.” So the lady says, subject to invoking the feminine privilege of changing her mind. The president thus makes good on one of his most important campaign promises, mocking the holy writ of global warming, or “climate change” as it’s called now because the globe refuses to warm as promised and all the dead polar bears are still not dead and the ocean that was supposed to have inundated the financial district of lower Manhattan by now, has still not obeyed Al Gore. The president sounds like the reasonable one now. “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris accord for an entirely new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States.” He identified several sectors of the American economy that would lose jobs and paychecks if the United States stays in the accord — 2.7 million jobs by 2025. Fair is fair, after all, even for Uncle Sugar. This puts a large dent in Barack Obama’s legacy, about which he can’t stop talking. He was first in line to cavil Thursday, presumably caviling from his walled mansion behind a moat of security a quarter of a mile long, where he leads what he imagines the U.S. Government in more or less permanent exile, or at least until he gets bored with exile and goes home, like presidents before him, and comes to term with the fact that his day is done. “The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created,” he said, trying to remember how to affect a presidential tone. “I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership, even as this administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future, I’m confident that our states, cities and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.” This was a stunning exercise in disrespect for the one president we currently have, and for the office as well. Pittsburgh and Peoria with a foreign policy. Who knew? But several cities with Democratic administrations have vowed to remain in the Paris accord, as if they could. Several tycoons of finance and industry seem to regard their companies as sovereign, too, and were quick to take the president to task. It seems not to have occurred to these cities and tycoons that if they want to clean up their act and eliminate pollution, nobody, least of all Donald Trump, will stop them. Mr. Trump’s critics are eager now to play holier than thou — even the pope, who had said earlier that if Mr. Trump withdrew from Paris the Vatican would take it as “a slap in the face.” Leonardo DiCaprio was disappointed, too, because he had earlier urged Mr. Trump to “make the moral position.” Moral tutelage from the Vatican and Hollywood on the very same day. Religiosity reigns, if only for the day. But back where it counts, the president’s decision won praise from Republicans in Congress. “I applaud President Trump and his administration for dealing with yet another blow to the Obama administration’s assault on domestic energy production and jobs,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader. Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Committee on the Environment, observed that “the Paris climate agreement set unworkable targets that put America at a competitive disadvantage.Whatever new agreement Mr. Trump can make will be a treaty, and must, as the Constitution makes clear, be ratified by the Senate. Barack Obama, the famous professor of constitutional law, wouldn’t do that because he knew that the Paris agreement would never have made it through the Senate. Climate does change sometimes. Thursday was a sunny day in Washington.

Israel working hard to realize the dreams of its gas industry

Ferry Biedermann; special to CNBC.com 10 Hours Ago

Israel's energy sector is going through momentous changes due the development of its large offshore natural gas reserve. Last week, Greek oil and gas company Energean introduced a new element of competition into the country's domestic gas market by signing contracts for its two Israeli fields, and earlier this year the country started exporting gas to neighboring Jordan, albeit in initially small quantities. There are high hopes that Israel's substantial proven reserves, as well as the likelihood of future finds, will change not only the economy but also the geopolitical situation in the region, with Israel potentially becoming an exporter also to Egypt, Turkey and even to Europe. Yet, a combination of that same geopolitical situation, low natural gas prices, the lack of an export infrastructure and regulatory issues may temper such dreams, say experts. Exports are crucial to attracting major international players to Israel's gas exploration and production sector, says Roee Zass of Tel Aviv-based TASC, which has extensive experience consulting in the Israeli energy sector. "The Ministry of Energy has understood that exports are crucial and is trying to assist but infrastructure and geopolitics is something that takes years and there are lots of obstacles on the way," says Zass. The real measure on Israel's gas potential may come next month, when it becomes clear what companies are bidding for on a tender for oil and gas exploration in 24 additional blocks that are generally thought to hold significant possibilities. Yet, the deadline had to be postponed from April, indicating tepid interest from major international players. Israel went within the space of 10 years from a country that hardly even consumed gas to a major producer that's eyeing significant export opportunities. The country's first offshore gas field in the Mediterranean Sea, Yam Thetis, came online in 2004, followed by the much larger Tamar field in 2013. Both are majority owned by a partnership between Israel's Delek and the U.S. firm Noble Energy and almost exclusively supply the domestic market. The real game changer, making Israel potentially a natural gas player, was the discovery of Leviathan in 2010. It is estimated to hold at least some 500 billion cubic meters (BCM) of gas and is expected initially to be able to produce 12 BCM annually starting in 2019. Noble Energy decided to go ahead with development of Leviathan earlier this year after a protracted political and regulatory wrangle in Israel over competition and prices was settled in 2016, and after a major export contract was signed with Jordan.

Trump: Israel a symbol of the message of hope

Israel went within the space of 10 years from a country that hardly even consumed gas to a major producer that's eyeing significant export opportunities. The country's first offshore gas field in the Mediterranean Sea, Yam Thetis, came online in 2004, followed by the much larger Tamar field in 2013. Both are majority owned by a partnership between Israel's Delek and the U.S. firm Noble Energy and almost exclusively supply the domestic market. The real game changer, making Israel potentially a natural gas player, was the discovery of Leviathan in 2010. It is estimated to hold at least some 500 billion cubic meters (BCM) of gas and is expected initially to be able to produce 12 BCM annually starting in 2019.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the weekly cabinet meeting at his office in Jerusalem March 5, 2017. Under Israel's natural gas framework regulation Noble and its partners in 2016 sold two smaller fields, Karish and Tanin, to Energean for a reported $148 million plus royalties in a move meant to bring increased competition to the domestic Israeli gas market. Zass calls Energean's deal to supply gas to private Israel power plants a major moment, introducing a third supplier to the market, but cautions to "hold the Champagne." The Greek company still needs to make its final investment decision by the end of the year. The deal it signed offers better terms than the ones Noble and Delek give its customers but the gas fields' smaller size and the long-term contracts already in place in the Israeli energy market will still limit competition. Without significant export opportunities, major international players are unlikely to become involved in the Israeli energy exploration and production sector, is the consensus among analysts. Arie Reich, an expert in trade law and competition at Israel's Bar-Ilan University says that the drawn-out regulatory wrangle combined with other risk factors has hurt chances of that happening. "After what happened with the gas saga I think foreign investors will be wary of coming," he says, extrapolating it to other sectors of the economy. Reich argues for more bilateral investment treaties to reassure investors. "Especially now when we have these huge investments that are required in the energy sector, which are the biggest investments ever in Israeli history," he added. In a sign that domestic opinion on how to deal with the gas bonanza is not quite settled yet, the Energy ministry in May launched a $2 million, one year, PR campaign to persuade the public of the "supreme importance to link the Israeli economy to natural gas." The ministry also signed an agreement earlier this year with Cyprus, Greece and Italy to explore a gas pipeline for exports to Europe. But the ambitious 2,200 kilometer project, crossing depths of up to 3 kilometers in the Mediterranean, is in a very initial stage. Amid current low European gas prices and political risk in both Israel and Cyprus, many question whether it is viable. International ratings agencies are upbeat about the effect of gas on Israel's economy, but Kristin Lindow, senior vice president at Moody's Investor Services, says the contribution of gas to GDP (gross domestic product) growth, "is not substantial anymore." "At first when Tamar came on there was an extra boost to GDP and there has not been an additional boost relative to the rate of growth of other sectors of the economy since then. But the construction of Leviathan will certainly contribute to growth and so will the export," she said. The country's "A+" or "A1" credit rating is only expected to be revised upward if plans to set up a sovereign wealth fund with the gas proceeds are realized and it starts building up. "What we look at when we make positive adjustments for sovereign wealth funds is the extent to which a sovereign wealth fund can cover the country's external debt," says Lindow. While Israel's external debt is relatively small, the build-up can take time, depending on exports and what portion of revenues end up being invested in the fund. It is now expected to begin operating around 2020. But, says Zass, even if exports don't materialize to the hoped-for degree, "if you count domestic sales and exports to the Jordanian market, Israeli government revenues can become very high in the following years. I think the opportunity to start a governmental fund for the next decades or the next generations is still viable."

EXCLUSIVE: One man is killed and more than 40 are treated for rabies after an outbreak of VAMPIRE BAT attacks in Brazil

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

Edivalson Francisco Souza, 46, died after stepping on bat, which bit his foot

He was milking a cow on a farm in Paramirim, in Bahia, north-east Brazil

His death is the first recorded case of human rabies in the country since 2004

Flurry of attacks by vampire bats have been reported in capital city of Salvador

Disease control teams now culling them by catching and applying venom paste

By Janet Tappin Coelho In Brazil For Mailonline Published: 02:01 EDT, 30 May 2017 | Updated: 06:06 EDT, 30 May 2017

A man has died and more than 40 people are being treated for possible rabies exposure in north-east Brazil, following an alarming spate of attacks by vampire bats, it has been reported. The death is the first recorded case of human rabies in Brazil since 2004. The outbreak is the largest wave of attacks ever registered in the region and is being attributed to a disturbing rise in the bat population nesting close to humans. Last Saturday, disease control teams from Bahia state health authority (SESAB) were out in force culling vampire bats by catching them and applying a venom paste to their bodies, in a bid to control the rising numbers. According to SESAB, Edivalson Francisco Souza, the 46-year-old who died, was milking a cow on a farm in Paramirim when he accidentally stepped on a rabies-carrying bat, which bit his foot. The farmer dismissed the incident, washed the wound but failed to see a doctor. Three weeks later, after being hospitalised for seven days suffering from headaches, nausea, severe anxiety and shortness of breath, Edivalson remembered the incident. He tested positive for rabies but it was too late for doctors to administer the vaccine and he passed away shortly afterwards in March this year. SESAB immediately issued a public health alert, warning of the risks of contracting rabies and ways to stay vigilant. Within days of the fatality, residents living in the capital city, Salvador, some 400 miles from Paramirim, reported a flurry of attacks by the blood-thirsty creatures that appear to have added human blood to their menu. Over the last three months, dozens of frightened locals have told of being terrorised by the flying mammals at night. Many have woken up to the distressing sight of their bed sheets soaked with blood after the animals sunk their fangs into their toes, heels and elbows. One of the victims, Matheus Andrade, who lives in the historic centre of the city said: 'I was bitten three times, twice on my toes and once on my heel, in two successive nights around the middle of May. 'I didn't realize until the second time that I had been attacked by a bat. At first I thought I had somehow cut my toe during the night. 'I normally sleep with the windows and doors open and the bats flew in. I never felt any pain at all on both the nights I was bitten. But in my dreams, I did feel as if something had hooked itself onto my toe. 'When I woke up in the morning, I found the bed was wet. It had been raining overnight and I thought water had dripped in. But it was my blood. It was such a shock. 'The wound was tiny but deep, the blood was dark and thick and the area wouldn't stop bleeding even when I tried washing it off.' The 22-year-old refrigerator engineer was not the only member of his family to suffer the terrifying ordeal. His mother, Rose Fernandes, 54, said: 'I was bitten on my toe too while I slept. I didn't feel anything. My husband woke me up and showed me the dirty sheet. 'We thought I had cut myself without knowing. But as soon as Matheus told me the same thing had happened to him, we realised it had to be a bat because of the fang-like puncture marks in our toes. 'It has never happened before and it was very frightening. Now we shut up all the windows and doors at night even though it's hot. 'And it's a good thing we did because the other night I woke up in the early hours of the morning at 1:30 because I heard something banging up against the window. 'The bat that had bitten me before seemed to have come back for more and was trying to get in. It kept hitting against the glass. It even flew away at some distance and came hurtling back even harder slamming up against the window,' recalled the teaching assistant, shuddering at the memory. Both mother and son went to the Couto Maia Hospital and have been prescribed 30 days of anti-rabies and tetanus vaccines, which must be taken until the middle of June. According to veterinarian Aroldo Carneiro, it's common for people to confuse bat bites with a simple cut. Vampire bats, or the common bat, are small nocturnal creatures with a wingspan of about eight inches. They only live in the Americas and feed solely on blood, puncturing the skin of their prey with sharp incisors. Carneiro, who heads the rabies surveillance unit, explained: 'The bite does not cause intense pain because in bat saliva there are analgesic and anticoagulant substances, the latter prevents the quick healing of the wound.' He stressed that bat attacks on humans are rare in Salvador but cited destruction of the nocturnal mammals' natural habitat and large numbers of abandoned properties in the city centre as factors contributing to the outbreak. He said: 'We have detected shifts in bat behaviour and a worrying increase in the population in the area. We believe this is due to deforestation and the destruction of caves, which forces the bats to migrate to the cities. 'The city centre does not have the normal source of food for hematophagous beings (who feed on blood) such as horses and cattle. The vampire bats must find an alternative to live so they bite dogs and cats, and when these aren't available they turn to humans. 'In addition, there are many buildings in the historical centre of Salvador which are abandoned and have openings that give access to the wild animals. The empty places provide shelter and nesting sites and this has allowed the numbers to grow.' To combat the wave of attacks, a task force of disease control agents have been visiting homes in the terrorised neighbourhoods advising residents on how to protect themselves at night - by keeping windows and doors shut, putting up mesh screens, plugging cracks in the roof that can serve as an entrance for the animals, illuminating dark areas in the house and not leaving fruit out overnight. The teams have been vaccinating cats and dogs. Last year, 91,000 dogs and 32,000 cats were immunised, and agents have been re-emphasising to residents that rabies is almost always fatal unless victims receive early preventative treatment. Recent surveillance action resulted in the capture of 16 bats and lab tests identified the presence of the rabies virus in a couple of those caught. Carneiro said: 'Our disease surveillance teams have been out over the weekend controlling the numbers by trapping them and putting a venom paste on their bodies. This poison is passed on when they make contact with other bats. 'They must be culled because there are too many in the area, living too close to residents.' Professor Valdirene Meira da Cunha, 42, believes a bat mistook her home for a cave because after feasting on her big toe, it took refuge on her wall. She said: 'I turned on the light and I couldn't believe it. The bed was covered with my blood. I don't know what made me look up, but when I did I saw the bat hanging on the wall above my head. 'It was like a scene out of a horror movie, it was absolutely terrifying and my scream woke everyone up.' Pensioner Ubaldina dos Santos, 85, said she has not been able to sleep since the outbreak in the area. 'We're trying not to panic,' she said anxiously. 'But the houses we live in are old, with crevices and cracks where the bats can enter. 'Everyone is living in fear of waking up and finding a vampire bat drinking their blood like Dracula,' she added.

Should Russia's new Armata T-14 tanks worry Nato?

By Jonathan Marcus Defence and diplomatic correspondent

30 May 2017 From the section Europe

Active protection systems (APS) are being built into Russia's new Armata T-14 tank, posing a problem for a whole generation of anti-armour weapons, not least the US-supplied Javelin guided missile, used by the Norwegian Army. The warning comes from Brig Ben Barry of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) in London. He says this is a problem that most Nato countries have barely begun to grapple with. APS threatens to make existing anti-tank weapons far less effective, and there is little real discussion of this among many Western militaries, he says. Some countries are conducting research and trials to equip their own tanks with APS. "But they seem to miss the uncomfortable implications for their own anti-armour capabilities," he says. Norway is one of the first Nato countries to grasp this nettle. Its latest defence procurement plan envisages spending 200-350m kroner (£18.5-32.5m; $24-42m) on replacing its Javelin missiles, "to maintain the capacity to fight against heavy armoured vehicles". "There is a need for [an] anti-tank missile," it says, "that can penetrate APS systems". APS is the latest twist in the age-old battle between offence and defence in military technology. At different periods one side has held the advantage over the other. The armoured knight once ruled supreme, but the widespread use of firearms put paid to the armour-clad nobility's dominance. Since World War Two the tank, like the knight of old, has reigned supreme on the battlefield. It is of course vulnerable to the main guns of other tanks. If you have a heavy enough shell and a gun firing at high-enough velocity you can punch through even the best armour. But tanks are also vulnerable to other weapons systems, and that is what APS is designed to deal with. Since World War Two a whole category of lighter, man-portable anti-tank weapons has been devised. Since they have to be carried by the infantry they depend not upon velocity and mass to get through the tank's armour, but on a chemical reaction. These warheads impact on the external armour and a metal core forms into a molten jet that pierces through. Tank designers have tried to counter this in all sorts of ways, with reactive panels that explode outwards when hit; or by providing additional layers of spaced armour, to detonate the incoming round away from the tank itself. APS takes a whole new approach. It is essentially an anti-missile system for tanks, with radars capable of tracking the incoming anti-tank missile, and projectiles that are launched to disrupt or destroy it. Israel is among the leaders in this field and its Merkava tanks used it with some success during the last upsurge of fighting in Gaza. The Israeli Trophy system is being evaluated by the Americans. Britain too is looking at such systems and the Dutch have recently decided to equip their infantry combat vehicles with another Israeli-developed system. The fitting of APS to armoured vehicles is intended to counter a variety of weapons, ranging from the ubiquitous Russian/Chinese RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) to much more sophisticated guided anti-tank weapons like the Russian Kornet. But Brig Barry at the IISS is pointing out that Russia's APS technology raises questions about many of Nato's anti-tank defences too. Norway is taking action - and he believes other Nato countries will have to do the same.

Germany: Wave of Muslim Honor Killings

by Soeren Kern May 30, 2017 at 5:00 am

The court heard how Amer K. stabbed the mother of his three children in the chest and neck more than twenty times with a large kitchen knife, because he thought she wanted to divorce him. "Then he takes the knife and plunges it into her chest, [penetrating] the pericardium and heart muscle. A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head, cracking her skull. Then he grabs the rope. On one end he ties a gibbet knot around her neck, then he ties the other end to the trailer hitch on [his car]... He races through the streets at 80 km/h [until] the rope breaks." — State Prosecutor Ann-Kristin Fröhlich, reconstructing the husband's actions. In Ahaus, a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a 22-year-old woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances. The trial of a Kurdish man who tied one of his three wives to the back of a car and dragged her through the streets of a town in Lower Saxony has drawn attention to an outbreak of Muslim honor violence in Germany. Honor violence — ranging from emotional abuse to physical and sexual violence to murder — is usually carried out by male family members against female family members who are perceived to have brought shame upon a family or clan. Offenses include refusing to agree to an arranged marriage, entering into a relationship with a non-Muslim or someone not approved by the family, refusing to stay in an abusive marriage or living an excessively Western lifestyle. In practice, however, the lines between crimes of honor and crimes of passion are often blurred and any challenge to male authority can elicit retribution, which is sometimes staggeringly brutal. On May 22, a court in Hanover heard how a 39-year-old Turkish-born Kurd named Nurettin B. attempted to murder his second wife, Kader K., 28, after she asked him to provide financial support for their two-year-old son. State Prosecutor Ann-Kristin Fröhlich reconstructed Nurettin B.'s actions: "At around 6PM on November 20, 2016, Nurettin B. got into his car in Hamelin to meet Kader K. The trunk contained a knife, an ax and a rope. Sitting on the back seat of the car was their two-year-old son, who had spent the weekend with him. On the street, the former couple got into an argument and he begins hitting her. Then he takes the knife and plunges it into her chest. The 12.4 centimeter long blade penetrates the pericardium and heart muscle. A second stab opens the left abdominal cavity. Nurettin B. then pulls out the ax. With the blunt side he hits her head and upper body, cracking her skull. "Then he grabs the rope. On one end he ties a gibbet knot around her neck, then he ties the other end to the trailer hitch on the back of his black VW Passat. Nurettin B. steps on the gas. He races through the streets at 80 km/h (50 mph). After 208 meters (680 feet) the rope breaks. Kader K. is hurled against the curb. Nurettin B. drives to the police station to turn himself in. The child is still sitting in the back seat." Presiding Judge Wolfgang Rosenbusch asked Kader K., who was comatose for weeks, to tell her side of the story. She said "the horror" began immediately after their Islamic sharia wedding (the marriage is not valid according to German law) in March 2013, when Nurettin B. prohibited her from having any contact with friends and family. She was allowed to leave the house only for grocery shopping and medical visits. She was not allowed to have a mobile phone. Rosenbusch asked: "Does he have a problem with women?" Kader K. replied: "He believes women are slaves; they must keep silent." Nurettin B. has confessed to the crime but insists it was not premeditated. He has been charged with attempted murder and faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. On May 9, a court in Kiel sentenced 35-year-old Turkish man to two-and-a-half years in prison for shooting his estranged wife in both knees and permanently laming her, in the hope that she would be unattractive to other men. The court heard how the man took his wife to the back of a local mosque after Friday prayers, accused her of offending his honor and shot her, saying: "Now you can no longer walk. You will stay at home." In court, however, the woman, possibly under pressure from her family or the mosque, told the court that they couple had reconciled and would attend marriage counselling. Some observers surmised that the dispute may have been resolved in a sharia court. In any event, the German court allowed the man to return home with his wife and it remains unclear if and when he will serve his sentence. In Münster, a court sentenced a 36-year-old Lebanese man named Amer K. to 12 years in prison for stabbing his wife to death. The court heard how Amer K. stabbed 26-year-old Fatima S., the mother of his three children, in the chest and neck more than twenty times with a large kitchen knife because he thought she wanted to divorce him. Meanwhile, a court in Hanau sentenced a 22-year-old Syrian refugee to twelve years in prison for stabbing to death his 30-year-old sister, Ramia A., with a kitchen knife. She was 23 weeks pregnant and was accused of having brought shame to her family. Her unborn child also died in the attack. The true scale of Germany's honor crime problem is unknown: many such crimes go unreported and reliable statistics do not exist. Empirical evidence indicates that honor violence — primarily but not exclusively the product of Muslim culture and Islamic law, sharia — has metastasized since Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed in some two million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. In March 2011, the Max Planck Institute published a landmark study on honor killings. The study analyzed all such crimes known to have occurred in Germany between 1996 and 2005. The report found that there were two honor killings in 1998 and 12 in 2004. By 2016, however, the number had jumped to more than 60, an increase of 400%, according to the website Ehrenmord. The actual number of honor crimes presumably is much higher. Increased censorship by the police and the media, aimed at stemming anti-immigration sentiments, makes it impossible to know the names and national origins of many victims or perpetrators, or the true circumstances surrounding many murders, which often appear to be honor killings but are downplayed as "domestic disputes" (Familienangelegenheiten). 2017 is nevertheless on track to be a record year for honor violence in Germany; in the first five months of this year, there have been at least 30 honor killings, including the following: May 18. In Berlin, a 32-year-old Bosnian, Edin A., murdered his former girlfriend, a 35-year-old German woman named Michelle E., after she ended their abusive relationship. He also abducted and tortured her 12-year-old son, who was forced to watch his mother's murder. Neighbors said they had repeatedly alerted the police about Edin A.'s violent behavior, but the police did nothing. May 17. In Pforzheim, a 53-year-old Tajik man stabbed to death his 50-year-old wife at her place of employment, a Christian daycare center. It remains unclear if the woman was a convert to Christianity. May 17. In Wardenburg, a 37-year-old Iraqi man stabbed to death his 37-year-old wife while she was asleep in her bed. The couple's five children, between the ages of four and 15, were at home at the time of the murder and are now living with relatives. May 8. In Neuendettelsau, a 24-year-old Ethiopian asylum seeker, Mohammed G., stabbed his 22-year-old girlfriend in the stomach at a restaurant after she allegedly "provoked" him. The woman was five months pregnant; the unborn baby died in the attack. May 4. In Freiburg, a 33-year-old Syrian asylum seeker stabbed his 24-year-old wife, a Kurdish Christian who had moved out of the couple's apartment, but had returned to collect some personal belongings. The couple's three children — aged six, three and ten months — are now in protective custody. April 29. In Prien am Chiemsee, a 29-year-old Afghan man stabbed to death a 38-year-old Afghan woman, Farima S., who had converted to Christianity. The attacker ambushed the woman as she was exiting a grocery store with her two children. April 23. In Syke, a 32-year-old Iraqi man, Murad B., strangled his 32-year-old wife, Mehe K., in front of the couple's three children, ages one, two and nine. April 23. In Dresden, a 29-year-old Pakistani refugee, Shahajan Butt, murdered his girlfriend, a 41-year-old Vietnamese woman named Thu T. Police say the man, who arrived in Germany in December 2015, became enraged after he noticed that the woman had not posted any photos of him on her Facebook page, and suspected that she may have had another boyfriend. April 16. In Mainz-Finthen, a 39-year-old Egyptian asylum seeker stabbed to death his 32-year-old wife. Police said the couple had been arguing at the time of the attack. Their two children are being held in protective custody. April 5. In Leipzig, a 34-year-old Syrian man stabbed his 28-year-old wife because she wanted a divorce. The couple's two children witnessed the attack; they are being held in protective custody. March 31. In Gütersloh, a 43-year-old Syrian man burned his 18-year-old daughter with a cigarette and threatened to kill her. When the police intervened, the father refused to allow his daughter to leave the house. After police succeeded in bringing the girl to safety, the father and son attacked the police, who used pepper-spray to fend them off. The girl is being held in protective custody. March 15. In Kiel, a 40-year-old German-Turkish man stabbed to death his 34-year-old Turkish wife in front of a daycare center. Neighbors said the couple, who were separated, had quarreled about moving their three children to Turkey. March 4. In Duisburg, a 30-year-old Syrian asylum seeker, Mahmood Mahrusseh, stabbed his 32-year-old ex-girlfriend. The woman survived; her attacker remains at large. March 3. In Mönchengladbach, a 32-year-old asylum seeker, Ahmed Salim, murdered a 47-year-old German woman, Nicole M., apparently after she ended a relationship with him. The man, who also uses the alias Jamal Amilia, was arrested in Spain. In his asylum application, he had written that he was from Israel. In another asylum application filed in another country, he had written that he was from Morocco. He is believed to be from Iraq. March 2. In Scheeßel, a 42-year-old Iraqi man stabbed to death his 52-year-old wife, also from Iraq. Police described the murder as an honor killing. The couple's children are now in protective custody. February 25. In Euskirchen, a 32-year-old German-Turkish man stabbed to death his former girlfriend, a 32-year-old German woman who had begun dating someone else. February 17. In Offenbach, a 32-year-old Turkish man, Volkan T., shot to death his former girlfriend, a 40-year-old woman, Silvia B. The man said he was angry that the woman, who had two children, had ended her relationship with him. February 15. In Bielefeld, a 51-year-old Iraqi man tried to murder his 51-year-old wife by attacking her with a hammer while she was attending a German class at a local language academy. The man was apparently angry that his wife was mixing with other language students. February 10. In Ahaus, a 27-year-old Nigerian asylum seeker stabbed to death a 22-year-old woman after she seemingly offended his honor by rejecting his romantic advances. The woman, a Hindu, was employed at the same asylum shelter where her attacker lived. He was arrested in Basel, Switzerland. February 7. In Hanover-Mühlenberg, a 21-year-old Serbian man stabbed his ex-girlfriend after she ended their relationship and had begun dating someone else. February 1. In Hamburg, a 26-year-old Afghan man stabbed his estranged 28-year-old wife during an argument; she survived the attack. January 15. In Bremen-Vegesack, a 39-year-old Turkish man murdered his 40-year-old Syrian wife, who was nine months pregnant, because she wanted to divorce him. The unborn baby also died during the attack. January 5. In Waldshut-Tiengen, a 47-year-old Turkish man stabbed his estranged wife as she was walking with a friend. When she tried to run away, he pursued her and plunged a knife in her back. January 4. In Köln-Buchheim, a 44-year-old Iraqi man murdered his 19-year-old daughter because he did not approve of her boyfriend. Two days later, he called police. "I killed my daughter," he said. The man may never face justice; he is believed to have fled to Iraq.

Trump and Leaks: The president must take aggressive steps to stop a grave national security threat

by FRED FLEITZ May 30, 2017

President Trump spoke out angrily Thursday against leaks of classified information to the press - including leaks of confidential information the U.K. government had shared with American intelligence agencies on the Manchester terrorist attack. These leaks "pose a grave threat to our national security," he said, and pledged to identify and prosecute those responsible. The president has it exactly right. He is facing an unprecedented campaign by career government employees to sabotage his presidency with a flood of leaks to the press of classified and confidential information. These leaks are damaging U.S. national security and constitute criminal behavior. They must be stopped. Some of the leaks have been of highly classified U.S. intelligence reports, including "demasked" NSA reporting concerning former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn. Others were of President Trump's confidential conversations with foreign leaders. Concerning the false allegation that President Trump "leaked" classified information to Russian officials when he met with them in the Oval Office, bear in mind that the president has ultimate classification authority - he can disclose intelligence as he sees fit to advance his foreign policy. As I discussed in an earlier Fox News Opinion article, the real scandal in that instance was that current and former intelligence and policy officials disclosed to the Washington Post sensitive details about the intelligence Trump allegedly discussed with Russian officials - details that were so highly classified the Post chose not to publish them. This was the real crime. The persons who illegally disclosed this information to the Post must be prosecuted. Just as serious are the constant leaks concerning investigations of Trump officials. There's no question in my mind that former FBI Director James Comey arranged to have his notes leaked to the press to hurt President Trump and influence the congressional investigations of Russian interference in the 2016 election. It also appears that anti-Trump government employees with the Justice Department and the FBI are systematically leaking a story a day to help CNN and MSNBC promote their false narratives that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election. These leaks are especially serious since Justice and law enforcement careerists are violating the due process rights of Trump officials by disclosing (and probably misrepresenting) confidential information from official investigations to smear them. Since the "evidence" of wrongdoing by Trump officials appears too thin to produce any charges, these officials are instead using leaks to try and convict Trump officials in the press. It is urgent that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Special Counsel Robert Mueller stop these leaks which are an affront to the American system of justice. The Trump administration also must take decisive action to halt leaks of classified national security information. The most effective way to do this is to fill vacant confirmable and non-confirmable positions in policy and intelligence agencies as quickly as possible. This should include a housecleaning in the NSC, State, DOD, CIA, DIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and other agencies to replace career government employees named to sensitive positions by the Obama administration. In some cases, these career officials are actually former Obama political appointees who converted to the career civil service, a practice known as "burrowing in." Although civil service laws and regulations make it virtually impossible to fire career government employees, the Trump administration can reassign these officials. If this is not possible, job descriptions can be changed so anti-Trump careerists suspected of leaking no longer work on sensitive matters. Their security clearances can also be stripped. Other immediate steps must be taken to address recent leaks of classified and confidential information. Read-outs of the president's meetings and conversations must be better protected. Investigations that include polygraphs should be conducted to find those who were behind recent leaks. And the NSC needs to bring in experienced personnel to help safeguard confidential information concerning the president's policy deliberations. Trump officials will never completely stop leaks to the press. They need to recognize that leaks are always worse during Republican presidencies because the career work force tilts to the left. That said, this recent flood of leaks is an unprecedented effort by government careerists to put U.S. national security at risk to undermine an elected president. This cannot be allowed to continue.

THE COLLAPSE OF FRANCE — Paul Craig Roberts May 29, 2017

The brainwashed and insouciant French electorate has voted to abolish the French nation. In five years France will exist only as a geographical location, a province in “Europe,” itself a province in global capitalism. The French had a last chance to save their nation, but they could not do it because the French have been convinced that to be French is to be fascist and racist. Therefore, the French electorate defeated Marine Le Pen, the leader of the only political party that stands for France. After five years under Macron, nothing will be left of France. Macron, the choice of Washington and the international bankers, represents, in the words of Diana Johnstone, “the trans-Atlantic elite totally committed to ‘globalization,’ using whatever is left of the power of national governments to weaken them still further, turning over decision-making to ‘the markets’—that is, to international capital managed by the major banks and financial institutions, notably those located in the United States, such as Goldman-Sachs.” Read Johnstone’s assessment here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/all-power-to-the-banks-the-winners-take-all-regime-of-emmanuel-macron/5591208  Macron defines himself as a “diversityite,” declaring that “there is no such thing as French culture.” Macron’s Minister of Armies and Defense declares that she “does not feel French.” Macron follows the Russophobic line of the American neoconservatives, and rode to his inauguration in a military vehicle. It is unclear why Putin went to France to meet today with Macron, who is totally in Washington’s pocket. Perhaps the Russian government believes that the terror attacks in France are real and hopes to finally convince one Western government to join Russia in “the war against terrorists.” Or perhaps Putin wanted to see if Macron has any awareness of the conflict with Russia toward which Washington is pushing Europe. Perhaps Macron’s invitation to Putin was Washington’s suggestion, the purpose of which is to keep Putin ever hopeful of Western cooperation while Washington finalizes its attack plan. Only two countries stand in the way of Washington’s world hegemony: Russia and China. Of the two obstacles, Russia is perceived as the largest constraint on US unilateralism. Europe is dependent on Russian energy, and Russia’s nuclear weapons systems are highly advanced. The fact that Russia’s national sovereignty depends so much on Putin’s leadership makes Russia the most vulnerable to Washington’s intrigue. Putin can be removed by assassination. But China’s leadership cannot, because it is collective. There is democracy within the ruling Chinese political party. Washington’s focus on China is to discredit the ruling party by using US financed organizations within China for this purpose. Washington is driving the world into a major conflict. The Russian and Chinese governments must know by now that they are targeted. As their hopes for diplomacy continue to be rebuffed by Washington and Europe, they will reach the conclusion that their only choice is surrender or war.

In Antarctica, Scientists Are Lured to a Frozen Desert

Photographs and Text by JONATHAN CORUM May 29, 2017

Welcome to the McMurdo Dry Valleys, the largest ice-free region in Antarctica and one of the driest places on the planet. Most of the continent is covered in thick ice, but this place is a striking exception. Sheltering mountains and dry winds from the continent preserve a frigid desert that defies all expectations. It is not barren: Scientists have spent decades studying the extreme environment and the microscopic life that survives there. The Dry Valleys may well be our closest equivalent to a Martian landscape. Four journalists from The New York Times visited the Dry Valleys in December — summer in the Southern Hemisphere. We also made virtual-reality film based on that flight, along with three other films about the changing continent. Here’s some of what we learned. Ice from the East Antarctic ice sheet cascades into the Upper Wright Valley, forming a smooth glacier three miles wide and five miles long. The surrounding mountains are high enough to keep the rest of the valley ice-free. Wind shapes the valley in different ways. Windblown grit carves exposed rocks on the valley rim into curved and hollowed forms. And dry winds from East Antarctica pour down the glacier and through the length of the valley, stripping away moisture and any snow that might fall. Little water means little erosion. Footprints in parts of this valley can last longer than a human lifetime. In some places, there are tire tracks left by scientists in the 1970s. The walls of the Upper Wright Valley are banded with light and dark rock — far more significant than they might seem. The pale bands are ancient Antarctic bedrock. But the dark bands appeared during the breakup of Gondwana, a supercontinent that formed around 600 million years and split apart around 180 million years ago. The breakup yielded the continents we know today as South America, Africa, Antarctica and Australia, among others. Similar rock formations on other continents in the Southern Hemisphere helped strengthen early theories of continental drift. The Friis Hills are the remnants of an ancient landscape. Twenty million years ago, this land was wet bog, buzzing with insects and dotted with Southern beech trees. A shift in climate covered the area with glaciers, and water hasn’t flowed here in 14 million years. The lack of moisture has helped preserve a record of the more temperate past, and researchers digging in the dry ground have found freeze-dried twigs and moss just below the surface. A Pond and Lake That Hint at Life on Other Planets Don Juan Pond Jonathan Corum / The New York Times Nestled in the Wright Valley is a pond of ankle-deep water, still liquid despite the freezing temperatures. Don Juan Pond is thought to be the saltiest body of water in the world, many times saltier than the Dead Sea. Scientists have found microbes around the pond, but the water itself may not support life. The last pools of liquid water on a dying Mars might have once looked something like this. Lake Vanda is an ice-covered lake fed by the Onyx River, the longest surface river in Antarctica, which only flows in summer. The lake holds an isolated ecosystem of microbial mats and spires. Rovers on Mars are searching for traces of similar microbial structures in ancient Martian lake beds.

New Video Game To Depict Christianity As Incubator For Extremism, Threat To Civilization

May 30, 2017 by SkyWatch Editor

There’s a lot to analyze in the image, which you can view in full below. It features seven characters arrayed around a table à la Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, with the central Christ figure wearing yellow-tinted hunting glasses and sitting in front of an open book […] Of course, there’s one other person we haven’t talked about: the shirtless man sitting cross-legged on the ground, with his hands tied behind his back and the word “SINNER” written on, or carved into, his skin. That brings us back to the religious elements of this artwork, which suggest that these individuals adhere to a perversion of Christianity. Next to the book, in front of the Jesus figure, you can see the elements of the Eucharist: a goblet of wine and a piece of bread. An American flag is draped over the table, except with the stars representing the 50 states replaced by a unique cross. The eight-pointed symbol resembles the Iron Cross, which was last used as a military decoration in Nazi Germany under the direction of Adolf Hitler himself. (READ MORE) Far Cry 5 will tell the story of a militant Christian cult, if a piece of artwork released today by publisher Ubisoft is any indication. There’s a lot to analyze in the image, which you can view in full below. It features seven characters arrayed around a table à la Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, with the central Christ figure wearing yellow-tinted hunting glasses and sitting in front of an open book. Five other bearded men and one woman — as well as a disembodied pair of hands — surround him. The table and ground beneath it are littered with weapons and ammunition, such as a tactical shotgun, a compound bow, assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades. Outfitted in flannel shirts with accessories like dog tags and lethal weapons, the men look like they’re part of a hillbilly militia. One of them has a wolf, or perhaps a dog breed that just looks like a wolf, leashed on a chain. The woman provides a contrast, with flowers in her hair and one in her hand. Of course, there’s one other person we haven’t talked about: the shirtless man sitting cross-legged on the ground, with his hands tied behind his back and the word “SINNER” written on, or carved into, his skin. That brings us back to the religious elements of this artwork, which suggest that these individuals adhere to a perversion of Christianity. Next to the book, in front of the Jesus figure, you can see the elements of the Eucharist: a goblet of wine and a piece of bread. An American flag is draped over the table, except with the stars representing the 50 states replaced by a unique cross. The eight-pointed symbol resembles the Iron Cross, which became associated with the Nazis during World War II but has since been revived as a German military decoration. The cross in Far Cry 5 appears on a flag, in white on a blue background, that these cultists fly above the American flag — a no-no, according to flag etiquette — on the grounds of a church. The same flag hangs from the church’s steeple, just like in the live-action teaser trailer that Ubisoft posted earlier this week to introduce Far Cry 5’s setting: the fictional Hope County, Montana. There’s also some interesting stuff going on in the background. Two small airplanes — one with pontoons and another one hot on its tail, firing machine guns at it — are flying over a burning wooden building. Behind the church, you can see what appears to be a small town with a water tower, and there’s an antenna tower — perhaps for radio or cellular telephone signals — outside the town near a farm. And the majestic Rocky Mountains rise above the whole scene. Of course, we should note that we have no idea whether these people are friends or antagonists in Far Cry 5’s story, although it’s hard to believe a big-budget, mass-market AAA video game would cast the player’s lot with menacing characters like these. Far Cry 5 is set for release sometime before April 2018. Ubisoft will post a proper announcement trailer at 9 a.m. ET this Friday, May 26. Correction: The German armed forces currently award military decorations that bear the Iron Cross, following a 2008 petition by German citizens to bring back the symbol in a form disassociated from its Nazi heritage. In addition, one of the weapons on the ground is a compound bow, not a crossbow. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.

VICTORY: Federal Appeals Court Reinstates Lawsuit Challenging Constitutionality of the NSA's Mass Internet Surveillance Program

May 25, 2017

RICHMOND, Va. — Ruling that the existence of the government’s mass internet surveillance program would violate the First and Fourth Amendments, a federal appeals court has given the green light to a lawsuit challenging the government’s domestic and international spying program. The lawsuit—brought by a coalition of educational, legal, human rights and media organizations, including The Rutherford Institute, the ACLU, the Wikipedia Foundation, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers—was dismissed by a federal district court in Maryland, which ruled that the groups do not have standing to sue the National Security Agency (NSA), the U.S. Department of Justice and their directors. On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit reversed the lower court’s ruling in part, reinstating the lawsuit with Wikimedia as a party. A dissenting opinion filed in the case argued that all the plaintiffs have standing and should be allowed to proceed as parties to the lawsuit. “On any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “Revelations about the NSA’s spying programs only scrape the surface in revealing the lengths to which government agencies and their corporate allies will go to conduct mass surveillance on Americans’ communications and transactions. Senator Ron Wyden was right when he warned, ‘If we do not seize this unique moment in our constitutional history to reform our surveillance laws and practices, we are all going to live to regret it.’” The lawsuit brought by The Rutherford Institute, the ACLU, Wikipedia, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and other educational, legal, human rights and media organizations arises from efforts by the U.S. government since the 9/11 terrorist attacks to increase the surveillance and monitoring of U.S. citizens and foreign nationals. Although Congress had previously authorized the issuance of orders for electronic surveillance of foreign agents for intelligence purposes under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in October 2001, President George W. Bush secretly authorized warrantless interception of emails and telephone calls involving persons within the United States if NSA personnel had a “reasonable basis” to believe one party was connected with al Qaeda. When a judge refused to authorize the continuation of this program, the Bush administration obtained amendments to FISA in 2008 authorizing the acquisition without individualized suspicion of the international communications of U.S. citizens that are with or are about foreigners who the NSA chooses to target. In carrying out this broad authority under the 2008 law, the NSA has engaged in so-called “Upstream surveillance,” which according to the complaint “involves the NSA’s seizing and searching the internet communications of U.S. citizens and residents en mass as those communications travel across the internet ‘backbone’ in the United States—the network of high-capacity cables, switches and routers that facilitates both domestic and international communications via the internet.”

‘White Supremacist’ Portland Stabber Was A Bernie Supporter, Threatened to Kill Trump Supporters

This case furthered the media's fake narrative evil white people are constantly killing minorities everywhere for kicks

Information Liberation - May 29, 2017

The “white supremacist” who stabbed three people in Portland is actually a Bernie Sanders supporter who hated Donald Trump and threatened to murder his supporters. While the top result for murderer Jeremy Christian is an article from Portland Mercury which paints him as a Donald Trump supporting white supremacist, his Facebook posts are all over the place and show he supported Bernie Sanders.

Arch of Ba’al, With Shadowy Ties to New World Order, May Be Messiah’s End-of-Days Gateway: Rabbi

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz May 29, 2017 , 11:30 am

“For he built again the high places which Chizkiyahu his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal.” II Kings 21:3 (The Israel Bible™)

A pagan arch erected in Italy one month before the meeting of the world’s most powerful leaders in the same country may be the portal whose opening could usher in the age of the Messiah – or a sinister World Order, a prominent rabbi has claimed. The rabbi believes that the two events – the unveiling last month of a replica of the Palmyra Arch, a symbol of paganism and idol worship, and the recent G7 summit, representing the coming together of world powers – are deeply and troublingly connected. “This arch brings together all the necessary elements for the New World Order,” explained Rabbi Daniel Assur, a member of the nascent Sanhedrin, to Breaking Israel News. “If you look at where this arch has appeared, it is clearly a pattern moving towards a specific goal: Messiah. The question is, whose Messiah will it be?” The structure is a reproduction of a Roman victory arch built in Palmyra, Syria at the end of the second century CE. Originally it stood in front of a Roman temple where pagans worshiped the Mesopotamian god, Bel, also known as Ba’al, in a form of idol worship that figures prominently in the Bible. The original arch was destroyed by the Islamic State (ISIS) in 2015, but one year later, the Institute for Digital Archaeology used 3-D printing technology to reproduce a 20-foot full-scale replica. The reproduction, which has traveled around the world to grace a number of events – each related to a concentration of global world power – was erected in Florence, Italy, one month ago as part of the first-ever Cultural Summit of the G7. This meeting was a prelude to the annual summit that brings together the leaders of the world’s seven major advanced economies. The seven entities, representing more than 64 percent of the net global wealth, came together last Friday in Taormina, Italy. Rabbi Assur explained that this connection to Ba’al was essential to the New World Order, and was therefore necessary to elements in the G7 seeking world domination. “The New World Order is not a secular, atheist movement,” explained Rabbi Assur. “They combine worship of Ba’al with worship of the Egyptian god, Isis, and also the true name of God. They need to bring together all of these elements.” Rabbi Assur added that changes within Christianity, specifically Catholicism, are part of the battle against the New World Order. This was one of his motives for participating in the Sanhedrin’s trial against Pope Francis in 2015. “The culture of paganic Rome is taking over Christianity,” he argued. “Christianity must be taken back from Roman culture, which is paganism.” The arch, originally reconstructed for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Heritage week in England, also relates to the New World Order’s designs on the Holy Temple and the name of the Jewish God, the rabbi said. “UNESCO, as part of the New World Order, has to usurp the true name of God,” Rabbi Assur explained. “It is towards this end that UNESCO is working towards changing the name and history of the Temple Mount, in order to control the original name of the Jewish God. That is why they made the most absurd claims about the holy places in Israel, but the power of the New World Order is real, so they were successful, despite their obvious lies.” Rabbi Assur said that the arch’s role in bringing the Messiah was explicitly described in the Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin (78a). The disciples of Rabbi Yossi the son of Kisma questioned him, asking when the son of David (the Messiah) will appear. And he answered: I am afraid you will request from me a sign as well. And they assured him that they would not. He then said to them: When this gate will fall, be rebuilt and fall again, be rebuilt again and fall again. And before it will be rebuilt for the third time the Messiah will appear. Revered Jewish scholar Rashi, a medieval rabbi who authored a canonical commentary on the Torah, wrote that the arch mentioned by Rabbi Yossi was “a Roman arch in a Roman city”. Rabbi Assur explained that when the Talmud describes the gate falling, it is not referring to an intentional act of deconstruction, but to the powers of evil triumphing over those who serve the true God, symbolized by the Arch of Palmyra. “There is no question that the arch is the portal for a new world that the Talmud is speaking about. If the New World Order succeeds, then they will rule, God forbid,” Rabbi Assur said. “But if the Moshiach ben David (Messiah from the House of David) comes through the portal, he will rule over them, over the New World Order.” The first modern reappearance of the Arch of Palmyra was in London’s Trafalgar Square in April 2016, when it was rected for(UNESCO) World Heritage Week. The unveiling coincided with the beginning of a 13-day period known in the occult as “the Blood Sacrifice to the Beast”, the most important holiday for those who worship the god Ba’al, celebrated with child sacrifice and bisexual orgies. In February, the arch was assembled again as the centerpiece for the World Government Summit in Dubai, an international meeting of global leaders to discuss policy.

Another Memorial Day

Monday, May 29, 2017

Yesterday I joined the officially-estimated 50,000 people attending the Memorial Day "Celebration at the Station" in Kansas City. The weather was perfect, the music wonderful, and the post-celebration fireworks spectacular. The crowd's mood was respectfully celebratory save for a somber moment when photos of several young area men killed in action since 2001 were displayed on two large HiDef screens. I watched with growing fury as the pageant's official spokesman made the standard obligatory references to the "heroic sacrifices of these brave men who died defending our freedom". That these men were brave goes without saying and I'm certain that at the beginning of their service they truly believed they were defending our freedom. At one time I believed it too. The bitter truth is that every American soldier killed in action since 2001 died as a direct result of Washington's Official Lies and everyone in Official Washington and its enabling national media establishment knows it. This morning, Senator John McCain called Russia a "bigger threat to global security" than ISIS and called Russia' s President Vladimir Putin a "thug and a murderer", echoing the meme that demonstrates just how thoroughly the Washington Establishment has absorbed and is now applying lessons learned from the tyrannical regimes with dreams of Empire that preceded it. “The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. The public will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”. – Josef Stalin, Dictator of the Soviet Union “Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” – Hermann Goring, Nazi Gestapo Founder Since September 11, 2001, Washington has bombed Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, and Pakistan. It has overthrown the democratically elected President of the Ukraine in 2014 and its agents initiated the completely illegal effort to overthrow Syria's President Assad. Assad's was the only government in the region protecting Christians and other religious minorities from Sunni fanatics. "Republican" Senator John McCain and "Democrat" Hillary Clinton's Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland orchestratred and directed the Ukrainian coup d'etat and McCain and Clinton were heavily involved in standing up, arming, and supporting the so-called "Syrian Free Army", a rag-tag gang of Sunni thugs and former al Qaeda members responsible for the violence occuring in Syria today. In that time, be it noted, Russia has attacked and invaded no one, Washington's self-serving and false characterizations of events in Crimea not withstanding. Senator John McCain is the poster boy for the nation and freedom destroying cancer of Washington-sponsored aggression. He is the very embodiment of evil with the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children on his hands, including the blood of thousands of American soldiers. For Criminal McCain to call anyone else "a thug and a murderer" is a crime against truth and reason, an odious projection of his own faults. He and his fellow war criminals are busily about, preparing for their next wars. For them, it is a "target rich" environment. The occupation of Russia is the ultimate goal.

Trump vs Terror

By Hal Lindsey

On May 22nd at 10:30 PM local time, an ISIS suicide bomber targeted a Manchester concert audience of mostly teen and pre-teen girls. A few hours later, two unlikely men stood together on a stage in the ancient city of Bethlehem. President Donald Trump of the United States and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas each gave a brief statement before taking questions from the press. “We would like to reassert our willingness,” Abbas said to Trump, “to continue to work with you as partners in fighting terrorism in our region and in the world.” It was the kind of thing Abbas has said to western audiences many times before, and especially to U.S. presidents. But in the past, no president ever publicly called him on it while standing next to him. Quietly, diplomatically — Trump did. Abbas claims to be America’s partner, fighting terrorism in the region. But his government rewards terrorism, terrorists, and the families of terrorists with money and honor. A Palestinian in the region can give financial security to his family by committing a terrorist act. The Abbas government will give his family what they call a “salary” while he remains in prison. That “salary” will be at least as much as the average Palestinian annual wage, and can be four times the average. U.S. taxpayers help fund such “salaries.” If the terrorist dies as a suicide bomber, Abbas and his comrades will not just give money to the family, they will name a town square (perhaps more than one) in the terrorist’s honor. In other words, if the Manchester attack had been perpetrated by Palestinians against Jews, Abbas would have praised the attack, honored the attacker, and given a salary to his family. Abbas does not fight terrorism. He rewards it. He has made “terrorist” a respectable occupation, and the quickest route to fame and glory among his people. He is an enabler and encourager of terrorism. When it was Trump’s turn to speak, he went back to the theme of his speech to Muslim leaders in Riyadh a couple of days earlier. “The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comfort, must be driven out from our society forever.” The phrase, “those who give them aid and comfort,” seemed to be a direct reference to the Palestinian policy of honoring and supporting terrorists and their families. Later, Trump said something that left no doubt about his concerns regarding the Abbas government. He said, “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded.” In a Jerusalem Post editorial, Adam Rasgon wrote, “The only problem with Trump’s request is that Abbas almost certainly cannot fulfill it as prisoners and ‘martyrs’ loom large in Palestinian society and the PA president’s popularity is declining.” He’s right. Abbas is too weak to stop paying terrorists’ families. If he did it, his countrymen would rise up in arms against him. That weakness is a problem because any peace agreement would require strong leadership on both sides. The Palestinian leader’s fragility makes a U.S.-brokered peace nearly impossible. Abbas is now in the 15th year of a 5-year term. That makes his leadership completely illegitimate. And the Palestinians know it. 64% now say he should resign. President Trump has been characteristically optimistic about the possibilities of peace. A few weeks ago, when he met Abbas at the White House, the President spoke of brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. “It is something that I think is frankly, maybe, not as difficult as people have thought over the years.” We will see. Real and lasting peace among nations will not arrive on earth until the return of Jesus. But that doesn’t mean we should stop working for peace. We will not be able to achieve ultimate peace, but we should follow the teaching of Jesus and be peacemakers where and when we can. In Matthew 5:9, the Lord said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” He knew our limitations. He knew that humans working for peace would not end all war. But when we work out even a season of peace, it alleviates massive levels of suffering. Avoiding another intifada means saving hundreds or even thousands of lives on both sides. So, we should be peacemakers. But we should do so with humility. Some of the peace efforts of past Presidents have done great harm to both Israelis and Palestinians. They pushed Israel to do more than was fair, right, or safe. They inadvertently encouraged Palestinians to take a tough line. Some previous administrations gave Palestinians the false notion that they would gain more by waiting Israel out, than by honestly seeking peaceful coexistence. In Psalms 122:6, King David wrote, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” We should work for peace here and now. But we should also remember that, ultimately, to “pray for the peace of Jerusalem,” means to pray for the return of Jesus.

Palestinians: Abbas Immediately Breaks Promises to Trump

by Bassam Tawil May 29, 2017 at 4:00 am

Less than 24 hours after the Abbas-Trump meeting in Bethlehem, in which Abbas promised Trump and his representative, Jason Greenblatt, to cease all forms of incitement against Israel, the Palestinian Authority (PA) government in Ramallah resumed its vicious rhetorical attacks on Israel. The Palestinian denial of Jewish ties and history to the land also continues full blast, despite Abbas's pledge to Trump that Palestinians are not in conflict with Jews or Judaism. Hard on the heels of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas's assurances to US President Donald Trump that he is raising Palestinians on a "culture of peace," he continues to glorify terrorists who have Jewish blood on their hands. Abbas, who met with Trump in Bethlehem on May 23, told reporters that he was committed to working with the new US administration to achieve a "historic peace deal with Israel." Abbas also announced his readiness to become a "partner in the war on terrorism in our region and the world." He claimed that he and his Palestinian Authority have been promoting "tolerance and coexistence, and spreading a culture of peace and renouncing violence." Abbas's sweet talk, however, did not last long. Just hours after Trump left the region, Abbas and his PA returned to their anti-Israel incitement. This stands in blinding contrast to what Abbas told Trump and his Middle East envoy, Jason Greenblatt, with whom Abbas met 48 hours after his get-together with Trump in Bethlehem. At a meeting of Fatah leaders in Ramallah on May 25, Abbas described Palestinian prisoners held by Israel as "heroes." His remarks came in response to the hunger strike of more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners, many of whom are serving lengthy terms for murdering or wounding hundreds of Israelis. The hunger strike, which began on April 17, is led by Marwan Barghouti, a senior official with Abbas's Fatah faction who is serving five life terms in prison for his role in a spate of terror attacks that killed five Israelis during the Second Intifada (2000-2005). Referring to the convicted terrorists as "our heroes," Abbas lashed out at the Israeli government for its refusal to surrender to the demands of the hunger strikers. "We will stand with them and support them," Abbas said, referring to the convicted terrorists. "We will emerge triumphant and we won't allow [Israel] to defeat or humiliate the prisoners." Abbas's powerful message flies in the face of his promise to Trump and his representative, Jason Greenblatt, to cease all forms of incitement against Israel. By describing the convicted terrorists as "heroes," Abbas is in fact sending a message to all Palestinians that murdering Jews is a noble and heroic act. Such rhetoric prompts Palestinians to launch terror attacks against Israelis. It is a clear call by Abbas for Palestinians to follow in the footsteps of terrorists and murderers. Is this Abbas's way of promoting a "culture of peace" among his people? Is this his version of encouraging Palestinians to renounce violence? Less than 24 hours after the Abbas-Trump meeting in Bethlehem, in which he promised Trump and envoy Jason Greenblatt to cease all forms of incitement against Israel, the PA government in Ramallah resumed its vicious rhetorical attacks on Israel. The attacks came in response to celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the liberation and unification of Jerusalem. They also came in response to routine and peaceful visits by Jews to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. In a statement issued by the Palestinian Authority on May 24 that is reminiscent of a medieval blood libel against Jews, Israel was accused of perpetrating "black crimes" against Jerusalem and Palestinians and of defiling Islamic holy sites in the city. It described the Jews visiting the Temple Mount as "extremist settlers" and falsely claimed that they were deliberately targeting the Al-Aqsa Mosque (on the Temple Mount). In fact, Jewish visitors never enter the mosque. It is precisely this kind of rhetoric that drives Palestinians to launch knife and car-ramming attacks against Israelis. For the past year and a half, Abbas and his PA officials and institutions have been waging a poisonous campaign of incitement surrounding peaceful, permitted Jewish visits to the Temple Mount. The incitement has resulted in a wave of terror attacks against Israelis. How does this fit in with promoting peace? Abbas's prime minister, Rami Hamdallah, both before and after the meeting with Trump, has also joined the chorus of glorifying convicted terrorists. In a statement on May 25, Hamdallah, who is often referred to by Westerners as a moderate and pragmatist, stated: "We salute the legendary steadfastness displayed by the knights of freedom, our heroic prisoners." Like his boss, Abbas, Hamdallah also strongly condemned the Israeli government for failing to comply with the hunger strikers' demands, which include increased family visitations, allowing inmates to have a photograph with their families every three months, installing more TV channels and air conditioning in their cells, and increased access to university studies. Hamdallah and Abbas are sending precisely the same message to the Palestinians: if you murder a Jew, you earn the title of "knight of freedom." In other words, Hamdallah, too, is urging Palestinians to engage in acts of violence against Israelis. One wonders exactly how Abbas and his officials will explain these statements to Trump and the U.S. Administration. Experience has shown that the glorification of terrorism and jihad (holy war) only serves to encourage more Palestinians to take to the streets and stab or run over with their cars the first Jew they see. The Palestinian denial of Jewish ties and history to the land also continues full blast, despite Abbas's pledge to Trump that Palestinians are not in conflict with Jews or Judaism. Hours after Trump left the region, Abbas's spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudaineh, issued a statement that pointedly ignored any Jewish links to the land. "East Jerusalem, with its Islamic and Christian holy sites, will remain the eternal capital of the State of Palestine," Abu Rudaineh announced. Note his deliberate omission of any reference to Jewish holy sites in the city. This is neither a slip of the tongue nor a poorly-worded statement on the part of Abbas's spokesman. Rather, it is an intentional denial of Jewish rights to Jerusalem, including the Western Wall, which Palestinians refer to as an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and claim has no significance to Jews. This has always been part of the Palestinian strategy -- to deny Jewish rights and to delegitimize Israel. Like his boss, Abbas, however, Abu Rudaineh seems to have a good sense of humor. He has called on Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to "stop his daily incitement against Palestinians and their leaders." And what is the content of Netanyahu's "incitement"? His statement that a united Jerusalem will remain the undivided capital of Israel. In the view of Abbas's spokesperson, such a statement is clear "incitement" -- not the glorification of terrorists, not the incendiary anti-Israel rhetoric and not the continued denial of Jewish history and rights. President Trump's visit to Israel proved to be yet another opportunity for Abbas and his Palestinian Authority to practice once again their skills of deceit and deception. In English, everything sounds great. In Arabic, however, the messages sent by Abbas to his people take on the unmistakable ring of hate. Bassam Tawil is a scholar based in the Middle East.

Trump marks first Memorial Day as president with ceremony at Arlington

By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Monday, May 29, 2017

President Trump marked his first Memorial Day as commander in chief Monday, placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery and paying his respects at the grave of the son of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly. The audience at the cemetery’s amphitheater gave sustained applause and cheers to an appreciative Mr. Trump in his first public appearance since returning from his first foreign trip. The president paid tribute to America’s fallen service members as “angels sent to us by God.” “To every Gold Star family, God is with you, and your loved ones are with him,” Mr. Trump said. “They died in wars so that we could live in peace. Every time you see the sun rise over this blessed land, please know your brave sons and daughters pushed away the night and delivered for us all that great and glorious dawn.” He paid special tribute to three Gold Star families who lost loved ones in Afghanistan, including Mr. Kelly, whose Marine son Robert was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. “They all share one title — and that is the title of ‘hero.’ Their legacy will endure forever,” Mr. Trump said. The president also cited Spec. Christopher Horton, killed in a firefight with insurgents in Afghanistan in 2011, and Maj. Andrew Byers, a member of the Green Berets who died in He paid special tribute to three Gold Star families who lost loved ones in Afghanistan, including Mr. Kelly, whose Marine son Robert was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. “They all share one title — and that is the title of ‘hero.’ Their legacy will endure forever,” Mr. Trump said. The president also cited Spec. Christopher Horton, killed in a firefight with insurgents in Afghanistan in 2011, and Maj. Andrew Byers, a member of the Green Berets who died in battle against the Taliban in 2016. The president said Maj. Byers was killed braving gunfire to save fellow soldiers, and he told the soldier’s parents, “We stand in awe of your son and his courageous sacrifice.” Mr. Trump is facing a decision soon whether to approve the Pentagon’s recommendation to send another 5,000 troops to Afghanistan. The current U.S. force of about 9,000 is assisting Afghan security forces and waging counterterrorism operations. President Barack Obama initially had planned to withdraw all U.S. troops by early this year, but decided against the move as the Taliban and other Islamist militias have made gains. The president also praised the heroism of troops deployed on counterterrorism missions. “Today a new generation of American patriots are fighting to win the battle against terrorism, risking their lives to protect our citizens from an enemy that uses the murder of innocents to wage war on humanity itself,” he said. After his speech, Mr. Trump stopped his motorcade at Section 60 in the cemetery, which holds the graves of 890 soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11. There he met with families of the fallen and carried a bouquet of flowers to the grave of 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly. The president and Vice President Mike Pence stood with the Kelly family at the grave for several moments, chatting in reverence while onlookers remained silent. As the president departed the grave site, some families broke into applause. Among those in attendance were Defense Secretary James Mattis, Mr. Pence and former Sens. Bob and Elizabeth Dole. Mr. Dole, a veteran of World War II, will turn 94 in a few weeks. Mr. Mattis, a retired Marine general like Mr. Kelly, told Gold Star families that the “fighting spirit” of their loved ones persists. “Passed down through the ranks, their spirit echoes in those who serve today, in the air, on land and at sea,” Mr. Mattis said. “To the families of the fallen, both here and at home, no words will ease your pain. But I beg you, let it have meaning. Unite your sorrow to their awesome purpose.”

Car Bombs Kill 27 In Central Baghdad, Officials Say

Last Updated: May 30, 2017 09:38 GMT

Two car bombs have killed at least 27 people in Baghdad and wounded more than 100 others, officials say. The Islamic State (IS) extremist group claimed responsibility for a blast that killed 16 people and wounded dozens more just after midnight at a popular ice-cream parlor in the Iraqi capital's commercial Karrada district. Women and children were among the victims. In a second attack, a car bomb exploded near one of the capital's main bridges in the morning, killing 11 people and wounding scores, the officials said. IS issued a statement claiming responsibility for the first attack, identifying the bomber as an Iraqi who blew up an explosives-rigged vehicle targeting Shi'ite Muslims. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the second attack. The blasts come just a few days into the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, during which Iraqis often stay out late shopping or socializing after breaking their daily fast. IS considers members of Iraq's Shi'ite Muslim majority to be heretics and frequently carries out attacks against them. Karrada was hit by a massive truck bomb in July 2016 that killed at least 324 people, the deadliest attack in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion that drove Saddam Hussein from power in 2003.

President Trump's Most Important Message to NATO Wasn't About Money

7:00AM EDT 5/29/2017 George Rasley/Conservative HQ Editor

Claiming that President Trump "chastised" America's NATO allies for not spending more on defense, the establishment media has emphasized what is perhaps the least important aspect of the President's recent speech in Brussels. While it is true that President Trump made the point that, "Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on defense than all other NATO countries combined." And: "We should recognize that with these chronic underpayments and growing threats, even 2 percent of GDP is insufficient to close the gaps in modernizing, readiness, and the size of forces. We have to make up for the many years lost. Two percent is the bare minimum for confronting today's very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism." The most important part of his speech was not the part where he played bill collector for America's hard-pressed taxpayers. It was where he delivered the same message to the European leaders that he delivered a few days before in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to the leaders of Muslim majority nations: "The NATO of the future must include a great focus on terrorism and immigration ..." President Trump's point to the leaders of NATO countries, particularly German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, was that their immigration policies facilitated jihad through terrorism. The president's point making the connection between Muslim immigration and terrorism could not have been lost on Macron, Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May, all of whom bear some responsibility for the terrorist attacks in their countries because they have failed to aggressively defend their borders from jihadi invaders posing as refugees and immigrants. However, terrorism isn't the only, or even the most effective, weapon Islamists have deployed to undermine America and American values; the export of Sharia through cultural jihad and the doctrine of hijra—invasion through immigration—have been much more effective rendering many parts of France, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom into "no go zones" for the police and especially Western women. The message "The NATO of the future must include a great focus on terrorism and immigration ..." is no different than the message President Trump delivered to the Muslim heads of state, where he pointedly told them they must drive jihadis out of their countries and religious institutions. And President Trump made another interesting point that has not been covered by the establishment media: The leaders of the Middle East have agreed at this unprecedented meeting to stop funding the radical ideology that leads to this horrible terrorism all over the globe. This promise, if it is acted upon by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan and other Muslim majority countries that are known to have funded or encouraged jihad, really is an unprecedented development. As we pointed out in our article about President Trump's meetings and remarks in Saudi Arabia, for too long the Saudis have been allowed to be both arsonist and fireman—spending billions to build mosques and fund preachers who promote Sharia-supremacy and then claiming to be opposed to Islamist terrorism. In our analysis of President Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia we said there was one key point that was missing from the president's public remarks that we hope he made behind the closed doors of his meetings with the Saudis and other leaders of Muslim-majority countries: We know you are behind, support, and fund Salafism and the ideology of cultural jihad preached in the Quran and we will no longer turn a blind eye to what you are doing. From the president's remarks to the NATO heads of state it appears that, in his private meetings in Saudi Arabia he not only made that point, but he also got a commitment for it to stop. Will the Saudis really stop exporting Salafism? We have our doubts, however, President Trump appears to have received a paradigm-shifting commitment from the Saudis and perhaps other Muslim-majority nations to stop exporting jihad, now it is up to the Europeans to do their part by joining Trump in making sure the NATO of the future includes a greater focus on terrorism and immigration.

Egyptian Children Refuse to Renounce Christian Faith, Killed by Muslims

News: World News by Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D. • ChurchMilitant.com • May 28, 2017

Pope Francis is calling them martyrs

Among the victims of ISIS' recent attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt were a number of children, killed for refusing to renounce the Faith. Friday, Muslim gunmen opened fire on a bus of Christian pilgrims heading towards St. Samuel Monastery in Minya province south of Cairo. French media is now reporting that the ISIS militants asked each passenger to renounce his Christian faith, and when they refused, they were gunned down. According to Agence France Presse, survivors of the attack recount, "The masked men ordered the Christians going to the monastery to step out of the bus and abjure their faith." "They asked them to renounce their Christian faith, one by one, but all of them refused," said Fr. Rashed, the priest accompanying the pilgrims. "Then the armed men coldly killed them by shooting them in the head." Pope Francis is calling them martyrs. "May the Lord welcome these courageous witnesses, these martyrs, in his peace and convert the hearts of the violent ones," he said Sunday from his window overlooking St. Peter's Square. The day before, the Holy Father prayed for the victims and said there are more Christian martyrs today than in the times of the Early Church.

After School Satanist Club Wages War on the Bible Belt of America and They’re Coming For The Children 

By Nate Brown - 05/23/2017

The satanic temple is coming for the Bible Belt, and they’re gunning for the children. Through an organization called the After School Satan Club, the satanic temple is attempting to sway the minds of the youth into satanism. Children are vital to the continuation of the Christian faith, and as if cultural, ideological subversion wasn’t bad enough for them, Satan wants to place pressure on their minds after school. Several locations around America have fallen victim to weak local governance and in turn, have started to see the satanic organization spread into the minds of the youth. However, now the satanic temple is coming after the Bible Belt; A new religious program led by Satanists is pushing to expand into the Bible Belt this Fall. It’s called the After School Satan Club and instead of worship, it teaches activism. Instead of God, it teaches evolution, rationalism and free inquiry. But residents in Shreveport call it evil. Arturo Alderete said, “I think kids at that age shouldn’t be involved with that kind of stuff you know. It doesn’t sound too good to me.” Stacy McDonald agreed calling the after school program, “terrible.” Jaqeline Jackson added, “Some kids will take it too far and do different things that is not nice to other people.” KTBS-3 checked with school districts in Caddo, Bossier and Texarkana, Texas. District spokesperson’s confirm no application has been made with its respective school districts. But do confirm after school satan club’s won’t be banned. A huge concern for parents, who are watching the program gain traction. “Well we should learn about Satan, but we should learn about the truth. The fact is he’s a liar and he can’t tell the truth and he’s all out for killing, stealing, and distruction. There’s nothing good about anything he does and he’s not any good for anybody unless they want to be like him.” said Kelly McCabe. – Read More We, at the Christian Truther have been tracking the satanic organizations movements for the last couple of years, to the best of our ability, and the exponential growth is rather alarming, see the trend here.

With Warnings Of 'Much Worse To Come', Are Our Enemies Preparing To Use 'Food As A Weapon' Against America?

The 'Vicious Cycle' Lives On As Cowardly Warnings Of 'It Has Only Just Begun' Ring Out

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die May 23, 2017

On the very same day the horrific and cowardly terrorist attack upon Manchester Arena in England took place, the story over at the Independent that the Drudge Report linked to on Monday reported ISIS terrorists have been testing chemical weapons upon human guinea pigs in what experts believe is a plot to contaminate Western food supplies. Experimenting with formulas that quickly dissolve in liquid with which they can poison food with, we quite literally see food being used as a weapon as the sickening story reports, the terrorists have used these poisons to kill their 'human guinea pigs' already. Claiming to have found 'the ideal, lethal poison', this Newsweek story reports ISIS is creating an 'elite chemical weapons cell' in the area near the border of Iraq and Syria with one expert claiming we're witnessing a throw back to the 1940's Nazi Germany. Chemical weapons expert Hamish de Bretton-Gordon told The Times: "This is a horrifying throwback to the Nazis who would test nerve agents on live humans. During the Second World War, the Nazis conducted thousands of deadly experiments with mustard gas on prisoners at Sachsenhausen concentration camp, near Berlin.” In this new story from Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit he reports that back in November, ISIS released a video with explicit instructions on how to make a home made bomb. The surreal screenshot from that video seen below is probably a far cry from what most Americans think of when they imagine ISIS creating bombs. And with recent warnings from their members that 'Manchester was only the beginning' and 'what comes next will be even worse', we can only imagine the carnage that one deranged extremist in the right career field could do to a restaurant full of diners or a grocery store full of food should they be given the right opportunity. According to this new story from Mac Slavo over at SHTFPlan, all of these recent stories from the MSM on ISIS poisoning our food supply should be looked at with alarm, especially now considering the attack of Monday night and the total meltdown mode the 'deep state', the DNC and MSM are in over the Seth Rich story. We've long been concerned that prior to allowing themselves to go down, 'the elite' will bring down a whole lot of people with them. Anybody else paying attention to what the 'Russian boogeyman' is distracting 'the masses' from? From Slavo: These stories support a new narrative being pushed by the media and our government. They’ve been saying the same thing for several weeks now: As the Islamic State crumbles, ISIS is morphing back into an underground organization that will focus less on holding territory, and more on conducting insidious terror attacks in the West. When you examine these stories together, and consider the fact that our government has been secretly helping ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria for years, we have to ask ourselves a very important question. Is the mainstream media priming the public for a major chemical weapons attack on the West; an attack that our government may be complicit in? Because it sure looks like they’re telling us to expect a chemical attack in the near future. ISIS is clearly a creation of the deep state, who are also desperately trying to co-opt President Trump’s administration. They want him to drag our country into yet another major war in the Middle East. And if their ISIS puppets pull off this kind of attack, they might just convince him to follow the warpath that they have laid out for him. In this new story from the Daily Caller they report that ISIS recently called upon their followers to 'hunt their prey' in the UK soon before the concert bombing. Earlier in May, ISIS magazine implored their followers to 'lure and kill unsuspecting people with false advertisements for jobs and apartments', quite literally putting millions of totally unsuspecting people in possible harms way. Just imagine responding to an advertisement for a job or an apartment and being met by a machete wielding psychopath screaming 'allahu akbar' instead. Giving us another reason to be very careful about strangers who we're meeting with even if it appears to be for a legitimate reason, such threats by terrorists have a way of reminding us to be vigilant at all times. There are unfortunately a lot of very bad people out there who want to do us harm simply for our religious beliefs or because we don't think like they do or because they've bought into the devil's ways. As this story over at the Daily Mail reports, ISIS followers celebrated the cowardly bombing that took far too many lives, showing us once again that 'free humanity' is dealing with the worst of the worst - those who celebrate the taking of the lives of the innocent. And as this new story from Slavo over at SHTFPlan reports, this despicable bombing could have possibly been stopped with alleged warnings posted to Twitter hours before the bombing that 'an incident' would occur. Slavo's story also reminds us why we here in America and those living in the UK and elsewhere in the 'free world' need to remain vigilant - a massive 'trojan horse' invasion has been allowed to occur in the West. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, saying that a soldier of their Kaliphate was directly involved: “With Allah’s grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the Crusaders in the British city of Manchester, in revenge for Allah’s religion, in an endeavor to terrorize the mushrikin, and in response to their transgressions against the land of the Muslims. The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena, resulting in 30 Crusaders being killed and 70 others being wounded. And what comes next will be more severe on the worshipers of the Cross and their allies, by Allah’s permission. And all praises due to Allah, Lord of the creation.” Now, just hours after the incident, it has been revealed by numerous mainstream reports that a member of the Islamic State made a threat approximately four hours before the explosion that killed at least 22 people. According to Express UK and Huffington Post, a user by the name of ‘owys663’ (now suspended) posted a Tweet in which he specifically identified Manchester as a terror target utilizing hashtags. That the Islamic State has claimed responsibility and that it is possible that the now suspended Islamic State twitter account posted this tweet ahead of time indicates significant coordination and planning. With 3,500 Islamic terrorists reportedly living in the United Kingdom, and with Islamic State actively working to develop chemical weapons of mass destruction, it appears that this is, indeed, just the beginning. While the first video below takes a look at the alleged new threats by ISIS upon the Western food supply, Britain's Nigel Farage joins Fox News Tucker Carlson in the 2nd video in which he claims the cowardly bombing on Monday night which was directly targeting England's youth marks a new low in all forms of terrorism. With ISIS now saying the brutal murders Monday will be "followed up by vehicle attacks in your streets", we see the 'trojan horse invasion' of America that President Trump spoke of as a candidate a warning to us all in 2017. As President Donald Trump recently stated during his speech on terrorism to Islamic nations, “the deadliest toll has been extracted from the innocent people of Arab and Muslim nations.” The optimism of the region, he said, was “held at bay by bloodshed and terror.” And he added: “There can be no co-existence with this violence.” Once again, we see the worst of the worst attacking the innocent. President Trump's words are proven in this brand new story out of the Philippines as Islamic extremists, backed by ISIS, take partial control over the town of Marawi, leading to countless deaths, power outages, complete chaos and a war zone where no one was expecting there to be one. Once again, the innocent people of Marawi are being terrorized by those holding extremist and evil beliefs. While Philippines president Duterte has been forced to impose martial law on the entire southern region for at least 60 days as heard in the final video below, with the 'trojan horse invasion' of America that was allowed to take place over the past 8 years, imagine an American city such as Detroit under the same kind of seige by those who hate America and are already here within. According to this new story over at Reuters, countries all over the world will be increasing security at major cultural and sports events following the Manchester bombing with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security specifically warning that Americans may also experience more security at public events.

WATCH: Here's a Montage of Democrats Confirming They Have ZERO Evidence Trump Colluded with Russia

posted by Hannity.com Staff - 3 days ago

As the liberal left continues its desperate witch-hunt against Donald Trump and his presidency, let’s not forget that it was democratic leaders THEMSELVES that confirmed there wasn’t a single-shred of evidence connecting the Trump campaign to Russia. Alt-left activists and lawmakers have been calling for the President’s impeachment since his inauguration last January. Their main reason: collusion. The only problem is that not a single member of Congress has seen anything implicating the Trump team worked with Russia, and they know it. “We did not include any evidence in our report –and I say our that’s NSA, FBI, and CIA with my office, the director of national intelligence- that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians, there was no evidence of that included in our report,” said the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. “Have you see anything in either intelligence briefings, anything, to back up any of the accusations that you’ve made?” a reporter asked Maxine Waters. “No we have not,” she responded. "There's an awful lot of smoke there, let's put it that way," said Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. "People that might have said they were involved, to what extent they were involved, to what extent the president might have known about these people or whatever, there is nothing there from that standpoint that we have seen directly linking our president to any of that." Watch democratic leaders CONFIRM they have ZERO evidence above.

Ancestry.com takes DNA ownership rights from customers and their relatives

A word to the wise: Read the complete terms of service.

Don’t use the AncestryDNA testing service without actually reading the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. According to these legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. The family history website Ancestry.com is selling a new DNA testing service called AncestryDNA. But the DNA and genetic data that Ancestry.com collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry.com takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years. It seems obvious that customers agree to this arrangement, since all of them must “click here to agree” to these terms. But, how many people really read those contacts before clicking to agree? And how many relatives of Ancestry.com customers are also reading? There are three significant provisions in the AncestryDNA Privacy Policy and Terms of Service to consider on behalf of yourself and your genetic relatives: (1) the perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide license to use your DNA; (2) the warning that DNA information may be used against “you or a genetic relative”; (3) your waiver of legal rights. 1. Perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use your DNA AncestryDNA, a service of Ancestry.com, owns the “World’s Largest Consumer DNA Database” that contains the DNA of more than 3 million people. The AncestryDNA service promises to, “uncover your ethnic mix, discover distant relatives, and find new details about your unique family history with a simple DNA test.” For the price of $99 dollars and a small saliva sample, AncestryDNA customers get an analysis of their genetic ethnicity and a list of potential relatives identified by genetic matching. Ancestry.com, on the other hand, gets free ownership of your genetic information forever. Technically, Ancestry.com will own your DNA even after you’re dead. Specifically, by submitting DNA to AncestryDNA, you agree to “grant AncestryDNA and the Ancestry Group Companies a perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide, transferable license to use your DNA, and any DNA you submit for any person from whom you obtained legal authorization as described in this Agreement, and to use, host, sublicense and distribute the resulting analysis to the extent and in the form or context we deem appropriate on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed or discovered.” Basically, Ancestry.com gets to use or distribute your DNA for any research or commercial purpose it decides and doesn’t have to pay you, or your heirs, a dime. Furthermore, Ancestry.com takes this royalty-free license in perpetuity (for all time) and can distribute the results of your DNA tests anywhere in the world and with any technology that exists, or will ever be invented. With this single contractual provision, customers are granting Ancestry.com the broadest possible rights to own and exploit their genetic information. The AncestryDNA terms also requires customers to confirm that, “You understand that by providing any DNA to us, you acquire no rights in any research or commercial products that may be developed by AncestryDNA that may relate to or otherwise embody your DNA.” Essentially, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. And, you can commercialize your own DNA for money, but Ancestry.com is also allowed to monetize your DNA for millions of dollars and doesn’t have to compensate you. Although AncestryDNA customers provide voluntary consent to have their DNA used in commercial research projects, customers are free to withdraw consent, with a few exceptions. First, “data cannot be withdrawn from research already in progress or completed, or from published results and findings.” In those cases, Ancestry.com has access to data about you indefinitely. Secondly, if a customer withdraws their consent, Ancestry.com will take 30 days to cease using their data for research. Finally, withdrawing consent, “will not result in destruction of your DNA Sample or deletion of your Data from AncestryDNA products and services, unless you direct us otherwise.” Customers must jump through additional hoops if they want their DNA sample destroyed or their data deleted from AncestryDNA products and services. The Ancestry.com policy does not specify what “additional steps” are required. U.S. customers must contact Ancestry.com customer service at 1–800–958–9124 to find out. (Customers outside the United States must call separate customer service numbers.) 2. Warning that DNA information may be used against “you or a genetic relative” The Ancestry.com DNA testing service promises to analyze approximately 700,000 genetic markers. According to Ancestry.com, the service, “combines advanced DNA science with the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.” The results of an AncestryDNA analysis include information about “ethnicity across 26 regions/ethnicities and identifies potential relatives through DNA matching to others who have taken the AncestryDNA test.” AncestryDNA claims to use the “latest autosomal testing technology” to produce genetic identity reports and can combine the test results with “the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.” In addition, AncestryDNA offers a genetic code profiling and matching service, advertising that “AncestryDNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches.” This raises a thorny issue that Ancestry.com has not resolved: your exact DNA profile is unique to you, but a substantial portion of your DNA is identical to your relatives. Thus, Ancestry.com is able to take DNA from its customers and also their relatives. Even if you’ve never used Ancestry.com, but one of your genetic relatives has, the company may already own identifiable portions of your DNA. The personal “Genetic Data” collected by Ancestry.com includes “information derived from processing your DNA Sample through genomic, molecular, and computational analyses using various technologies, such as genotyping and whole or partial genome sequencing. Genetic Data is broader than just the results delivered to you when you use the AncestryDNA test and includes a range of DNA markers such as those associated with your health or other conditions.” In short, Ancestry.com holds genetic data that reveals your health and other conditions. Genetic diseases are disorders caused by abnormalities in a person’s DNA and are divided into three categories: single-gene disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, and Huntington’s disease, result from the mutation of the protein of a single gene; chromosome abnormalities, such as Down Syndrome, are caused by disorders of the whole chromosome; and multifactorial disorders, including breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, develop from mutations in multiple genes, often coupled with environmental causes. Genomics play a role in nine out of the top ten leading causes of death in the U.S., including cancer, heart disease, stroke, chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, influenza and pneumonia, septicemia, and kidney disease. Buried in the “Informed Consent” section, which is incorporated into the Terms of Service, Ancestry.com warns customers, “it is possible that information about you or a genetic relative could be revealed, such as that you or a relative are carriers of a particular disease. That information could be used by insurers to deny you insurance coverage, by law enforcement agencies to identify you or your relatives, and in some places, the data could be used by employers to deny employment.” This is a massive red flag. The data “you or a genetic relative” give to AncestryDNA could be used against “you or a genetic relative” by employers, insurers, and law enforcement. For example, a young woman named Theresa Morelli applied for individual disability insurance, consented to release of her medical records through the Medical Information Bureau (a credit reporting agency for medical history), and was approved for coverage. One month later, Morelli’s coverage was cancelled and premiums refunded when the insurer learned her father had Huntington’s disease, a genetic illness. Startlingly, the Medical Information Bureau (MIB) used Morelli’s broad consent to query her father’s physician, a doctor with whom she had no prior patient relationship. More importantly, the applicant herself wasn’t diagnosed with Huntington’s carrier status, but she suffered exclusion on the basis of a genetic predisposition in her family. Under a 1995 consent agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, the MIB and its members are required to comply with consumer protections of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Much like financial credit reports, all consumers are entitled to a free annual copy of their “medical report” file from the Medical Information Bureau (MIB). If the consumer discovers an error in her MIB medical credit report file, she must mail a letter to the MIB to begin the dispute process. Federal laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), contain protections that prohibit health insurers from requiring, using, and analyzing genetic information in health care coverage decisions. However, both laws contain glaring exceptions that allow for genetic discrimination in certain industries. Notably, no federal laws regulate the use of genetic information, genetic testing, and genetic discrimination for life insurance companies, long-term care insurers, and employers. An Ancestry.com DNA test is the impetus of a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Sergeant Cleon Brown, a white police officer in Hastings, Michigan against his employer, the Hastings Police Department, and several city employees. Curious about his own family history, Brown purchased an AncestryDNA genetic test and analysis report. The results surprised him Ancestry.com said his DNA was 18 percent sub-Saharan African. Brown “proudly told his colleagues at the police department” about his African ancestry. But not long after that, “his elation turned into misery.” According to Sergeant Brown’s complaint, his colleagues at the police department, “started whispering ‘Black Lives Matter’ while pumping their fists as they walked” past Brown. The complaint also alleges that the former mayor of Hastings participated in the racist teasing, by telling Brown a joke containing racist slurs. “I just never thought it would be in Hastings, saying, like, racist comments to me,” Brown said to the New York Times. In his lawsuit, Brown, a military veteran who has worked in law enforcement for 20 years, is seeking $500,000 in damages. The Ancestry.com Terms of Service also warns that genetic information in its possession can be used by state or federal law enforcement agencies “to identify you or your relatives.” With the rise of forensic evidence in criminal investigations, DNA is often considered incontrovertible evidence. To propel the use of DNA evidence in criminal investigations and prosecutions, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) operates the national Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database. The CODIS DNA database, created and maintained by the FBI, consists of the following three levels of information: local DNA Index Systems (LDIS) where DNA profiles originate; state DNA Index Systems (SDIS) which allows for laboratories within states to share information; and the National DNA Index System (NDIS) which allows states to compare DNA information with one another. According to reports, the FBI’s CODIS software connects disparate databases including, arrestees, missing persons, convicted offenders, and forensic samples collected from crime scenes. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, federal law enforcement, the Army Laboratory, and Puerto Rico participate in national sharing of DNA profiles through the CODIS system. However, the FBI DNA database is not infallible. In 2015, the FBI said it discovered flawed data after it commissioned a study to retest DNA samples. In a bulletin sent to crime labs across the United States, the FBI surmised that DNA data errors were probably due to “clerical mistakes in transcriptions of the genotypes and to limitations of the old technology and software.” The FBI suspects that errors in DNA may go back as far as 1999. 3. Waiver of legal rights Are “you or a genetic relative” a customer of AncestryDNA? If so, Ancestry.com now has control over the DNA of “you or a genetic relative.” Should the warnings from Ancestry.com come to pass, and DNA information about “you or a genetic relative” is used against “you or a genetic relative” by any employer, insurer, or law enforcement, then “you or a genetic relative” have very limited legal rights. In its sales contract, Ancestry.com takes no responsibility. By consenting to the AncestryDNA Terms and Conditions, “you or a genetic relative” agree to hold the company harmless for any damages that AncestryDNA may cause unintentionally or purposefully. If “you or a genetic relative” are “dissatisfied with any portion of the Websites or the Services, or with any clause of these terms, as your sole and exclusive remedy you may discontinue using the Websites and the Services.” The only option for unhappy customers is to stop using AncestryDNA. In the event you or your genetic information cause harm, you agree to “defend, indemnify and hold harmless AncestryDNA, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees).” And customers beware, “you may be liable to others as well as to us if your account is used in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.” That means you could end up owing money to Ancestry.com, its attorneys, and others. The final indignity for Ancestry.com customers is that they must waive fundamental legal rights by agreeing to mandatory binding arbitration. With the exception of intellectual property rights disputes and certain small claims, Ancestry.com customers must pursue their disputes through arbitration, rather than court. In arbitration, the established legal rules of discovery, evidence, and trial by jury do not exist. Finally, if many AncestryDNA customers want to join together to file a lawsuit against Ancestry.com, they are prohibited. But in fairness, Ancestry.com similarly prohibits itself from joining with a bunch of others to file a class action lawsuit against you. By agreeing to the Terms and Conditions, “you and AncestryDNA agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative action.” These arbitration provisions survive even if you cancel your AncestryDNA account. However, for good measure, Ancestry.com notes that, “this arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.” 4. Conclusion To use the AncestryDNA service, customers must consent to the Ancestry.com Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. These are binding legal contracts between the customer and Ancestry.com. The most egregious of these terms gives Ancestry.com a free license to exploit your DNA for the rest of time. Customers must understand that turning over their DNA means a loss of complete ownership and control. Ancestry.com customers should also know they’re giving up the genetic privacy of themselves and their relatives. Before purchasing, individuals are advised to fully read and consider the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. If you become a customer, Ancestry.com owns your DNA for life and longer.

Gorka: President Trump Understands ‘We’ve Got to Destroy the Ideology of Jihadism If We’re Going to Win’

by John Hayward22 May 2017

Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka, formerly National Security editor for Breitbart News, was a guest on Breitbart News Sunday with SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam. Gorka said one of the most important points to stress about President Trump’s trip to the Middle East is that it’s not an “apology tour,” as his predecessor President Obama’s tour of the Middle East has been derisively described. In particular, he said President Trump’s address to the leaders of Muslim nations in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Sunday was “completely different” from President Obama’s famous (or infamous) speech in Cairo in 2009. “You actually had the Muslim Brotherhood sitting in the front row, let’s remember that, at the beginning of apology tour,” Gorka said of Obama’s speech. Kassam noted President Trump used the words “terror” and “terrorism” 31 times in his speech, versus Gorka’s count of “zero” mentions by President Obama. “He did talk about Iran. He did talk about the threat of Shia terrorism,” Gorka said of Trump’s remarks. “But he was also explicit — he was talking to a room full of Sunni Arab leaders, and he said that ‘you must drive the terrorists out of your places of worship, out of your community.’” “I think it’s not a fair summation to say that it was of one side, with regard to who the terrorists are,” he said. “The bottom line is, everybody who’s been suffering — in the intelligence community, law enforcement, the military — with years and years of censorship, of political correctness, must be celebrating tonight. Because what else did he say? Unequivocally, this is a battle between good and evil,” Gorka said. He was enthusiastic that a “stake has been put through the heart” of “postmodern relativism” and “the secular interpretation of ‘Jobs for Jihadis,’” a reference to the Obama administration’s notorious contention that a good jobs program for terrorist recruits would help to defeat the Islamic State. Kassam expressed skepticism that tougher rhetoric, or measures such as a much-touted effort to cut off terrorist financing, would be game-changers. “The proof will be in what actually happens afterward,” Gorka promised. “I’ve always said the issue of terrorism financing is not a panacea. The terrorists need money to do what they do, but at the end of the day, look at the attack in Nice. You can rent a truck, steal a truck, and kill almost a hundred people. It’s part of the solution, but not the solution alone.” “With regards to counter-message, we need to have governments involved,” he continued. “We must have countries like Saudi Arabia that are home to Mecca and Medina, and Egypt which has the Al-Azhar, which is the most important theological institution in the Sunni world — they must be part of the solution.” “But I will say that it’s often non-governmental counter-messaging that is more effective,” he added. “It’s good to have this stuff, just to have this commitment, but there are already thousands of Muslims who are on our side, risking their lives every day on their blogs, in the media, pushing back on the jihadis. Those individuals must be supported as well, because at the end of the day it’s not a kinetic challenge. It’s not just about killing terrorists. Like Ronald Reagan, Maggie, St. John Paul II, we’ve got to destroy the ideology of jihadism if we’re going to win.” Kassam noted that many Americans are uncomfortable with the United States relying on Saudi Arabia, home to many of the 9/11 attackers, as a partner in the struggle against terrorism. “There are trends, there were historic events, individuals that were linked to Saudi Arabia,” Gorka acknowledged. “But to say the whole government, the whole administration is culpable — no, it was al-Qaeda.”Let’s not take the culpability, let’s not take the responsibility away from the individuals that did that act,” he urged. “Al-Qaeda wasn’t a product of the Saudi regime. Al-Qaeda was created by a Jordanian individual called Abdullah Azzam, when he built something called the Arab Services Bureau in the 1980s to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, and hired an individual called Osama bin Laden to be his Number Two.” “Let’s be factual about where the threat comes from. State sponsorship of terrorism is still a problem. Look at the reception the president was given by the Saudi authorities. It’s clear that there are new winds blowing out of Riyadh as we speak,” he said. Gorka would not take it upon himself to say whether President Trump misspoke, or made a calculated decision to alter the speech, when he spoke of “Islamic terrorism” instead of “Islamist terrorism,” as the transcript stipulated. “I will allow the president to speak for himself. He knows very well what he’s saying, when he’s saying it,” Gorka said. “I think the important thing that he said is, ‘We are going to defeat the terrorists and send their wicked ideology into oblivion.’ Let’s take those words to the bank.” Looking forward to the rest of President Trump’s trip, Gorka’s advice was: “Hold on to your hats, because this trip is going to be an incredible success.” “Next it’s going to be Israel, then the Vatican, then the meeting of the advanced nations and NATO. You ain’t seen nothing yet, Raheem,” he promised.

3,000 jihadis on the streets of Britain: Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of radicalised men and women in their teens

More than 3,000 jihadis are in the UK, stretching the country’s security services

Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of suspects

Some 850 Britons are thought to have gone abroad to fight for the Islamic State

Up to 30 officers required to provide 24-hour monitoring of just one suspect

By Ian Drury Home Affairs Editor For The Daily Mail Published: 19:13 EDT, 23 May 2017 | Updated: 22:00 EDT, 23 May 2017

More than 3,000 jihadis are in the UK – stretching the country’s security services to breaking point. Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of suspects, mainly radicalised men and women in their teens and early 20s. About 850 Britons are thought to have gone abroad to fight with so-called Islamic State as they took control of large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq. But with the terror group being pushed out, extremists with British passports are fleeing back to the UK where authorities fear they may unleash a new wave of attacks. Although more than 100 have been killed, around half have returned home with battle experience and training in the use of explosives and firearms. The security services have also foiled at least 13 planned attacks in the past four years, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer, Acting Deputy Met Commissioner Mark Rowley, has revealed. The figures lay bare the scale of the terror threat facing the country from extremists. The flood of new jihadists is stretching the UK’s security services to breaking point, with up to 30 officers required to provide 24-hour monitoring of just one suspect. Restricted resources mean MI5 can watch around 50 terror suspects around the clock. As well as sophisticated plots to bomb transport hubs and shopping centres, jihadists in the UK are being groomed – often online – to carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks using knives and vehicles. A chilling report also revealed that the wives and children of Islamic State fighters in Syria could be brainwashed into carrying out attacks after returning to Britain. Europol, the EU’s police intelligence agency, said many posed a grave danger because they had been radicalised and desensitised to extreme violence. In 2016-17, there were 380 terrorism-related arrests in the UK, compared to 307 in the previous 12 months – a rise of nearly 25 per cent. Anti-terror police stepped up arrests after Muslim convert Khalid Masood killed four pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March before stabbing a police officer to death. Meanwhile, in the past three years there were 386 terror-related convictions, according to figures from Scotland Yard. Donald Trump led international condemnation of the Manchester atrocity by branding bomber Salman Abedi an ‘evil loser’. President Trump told Theresa May in a phone call that the US stood in solidarity with Britain following the massacre which killed at least 22 people. He offered Mrs May assistance in the investigation and they agreed the targeting of children at a concert was ‘particularly wanton and depraved’, the White House said. The call came shortly after Mr Trump denounced those responsible for the atrocity as ‘evil losers’ and said the ‘wicked ideology’ should be ‘completely obliterated’. Newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron called Mrs May to offer his condolences and expressed his ‘horror and shock’ at the attack. German Chancellor Angela Merkel assured Britain that ‘Germany stands at your side’. Vladimir Putin also offered to boost anti-terror co-operation with the UK after the ‘inhuman’ attack at the concert. Former US president Barack Obama said: ‘Our hearts go out to those killed and wounded in Manchester. Americans will always stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the UK.’ Only seven extremists have been placed under anti-terror orders watered down at the behest of the LibDems despite there being at least 3,000 fanatics at large in Britain. The so-called T-Pims - Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures - are the toughest tool the security services have to restrict the activities of terror plotters and sympathisers. They replaced the more restrictive Control Orders which were axed in 2011 at the bidding of then Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg following a row over human rights. T-Pims are supposed to ensure that the police and MI5 can protect the public from UK-based fanatics who cannot yet be prosecuted or deported by placing curbs on their movements and activities. Restrictions can relate to overseas travel and place of residence, and limits can be imposed on the possession and use of electronic communication devices. Suspects can also be required to live in a property up to 200 miles away from their home. But a statement slipped out to Parliament in December revealed that, as of the end of November, only seven T-Pims were in force. By contrast, in the months after the Paris attacks in 2015, almost 400 people were placed under house arrest in France by the authorities there. British courts have been accused of weakening T-Pims by chiselling away their conditions and making it very difficult for the security services to secure them. This has meant that they have become reluctant to seek them, fearing that they would be squandering thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money on legal fees for little gain. Chris Phillips, the ex-head of the national counter terrorism and security office, said he did not believe the current regime of T-Pims was working. He said: ‘The number of people subjected to T-Pims is far too low given the number of extremists concerned. Last year Keith Vaz, then Labour chairman of the Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee, suggested Prime Minister Theresa May looked at bolstering the T-Pims ‘given that she had been under pressure from her Liberal Democrat colleagues in the Coalition government to abandon control orders.’ And in 2014, Lord Carlile, a LibDem peer who was the independent reviewer of terror legislation for 10 years, said control orders had been abandoned for ‘political reasons’. He added: ‘The evidence is clear that the absence of anything like control orders… is harming the ability of the authorities to restrict the activities of people that they identify as threats.’ Britain is currently facing a heightened terror threat. In March, IS sympathiser Khalid Masood, 52, murdered five and injured more than 50 in a vehicle-and-knife rampage outside Parliament. The fanatic was shot dead during the attack. The UK’s terror threat level is currently ‘severe’ - the second highest level - amid warnings that a jihadist atrocity is ‘highly likely’. Security chiefs have warned that hundreds of young Britons who joined Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Syria have returned home, while others have brainwashed ‘lone wolf’ Muslims to carry out attacks. Control orders were introduced by Labour to deal with dangerous extremists who not be hauled before the courts but after 2010 they came under fire from the Lib Dems who said they were unfair because the suspects had not been found guilty of a crime. Under these suspects faced 16-hour curfews, an electronic tags, bans from meeting named individuals and using mobile phones and the internet, and could be forced to relocate to other parts of the country - ensuring they were not in touch with any jihadist allies. They were replaced by T-Pims with a reduced curfew requirement of ten hours and suspects were no longer restricted on where they could live. Terror suspects placed on control orders and T-Pims could also be required to surrender their passports so they could not travel outside Britain In an extraordinary security fiasco in February 2014, controls on seven of the most dangerous terror suspects in Britain – including two fanatics linked to the liquid bomb airline plot – were lifted and never renewed. It meant they were free to walk the UK’s streets under a cloak of state-sanctioned anonymity. Control orders were themselves a replacement for measures introduced in the wake of the September 11 attacks which allowed foreign national terror suspects to be detained indefinitely without trial. The measures were declared incompatible with human rights by Law Lords in 2004. No histrionics from Theresa - just controlled, civilised outrage: QUENTIN LETTS on the PM’s most powerful Downing Street statement A nearby clock tower had just tolled 11am when a plainly affected Theresa May stepped out of No 10 to make a statement about the killings. Normally the mood in Downing Street before a Prime Ministerial appearance crackles with chatter. Yesterday the mood of the Press corps was subdued. The shiny black door swung open and photographers’ shutters click-click-clicked. There was no other sound. No helicopter droned overhead, as sometimes happens. No crowd of protesters jeered slogans at the distant gates. And there were no lensmen’s exhortations of ‘over here, Theresa’, when they try to get her to look their way. Not yesterday. Just silence. She was in black trouser suit, black, flat shoes, respectful jewellery, tidy hair. The narrow legs of that trouser suit accentuated her slim-shouldered frame, more vulnerable than you might expect. As she came out of the doorway I was struck by how fragile and lonely she looked. Although on show, she retained a contemplative, sombre air. In some ways it was the expression of a churchgoer returning to her place after communion. Of course, she is the least lonely person in the country, constantly surrounded by aides and bodyguards and general to-do. Yet terrorism makes an island of the person at the top. She was the one who had to make the decisions and find words to reassure the nation. How to describe the indescribable? There was a pause as she braced herself for the off. Then: ‘I have just chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee where we discussed the details of and the response to the appalling events in Manchester last night.’ And she was launched on a long, powerful statement in which she averred that ‘the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain’ would prevail. It was a spirit that ‘through years of conflict and terrorism has never been broken’ and never would be, she said. Her cadence turning Churchillian, she conceded ‘there will be difficult days ahead’ but the terrorists would not win. Mancunian and British solidarity would prove insuperable. The one chink in its armour, perhaps, came when she mentioned the children who had died, and the voice momentarily wobbled. May speeches are not always memorable. She can sometimes sound prosaic, the larynx doing that warbly, headmistressy thing. Not yesterday. She had not had any sleep and her timbre had sunk a note or two. Her weariness, stark lipstick contrasting with her pale skin, lent her grit. Though physically weary, she was tough inside. Downing Street makes a theatrical setting. The building’s facade is as flat as any stage back-wall and the bluey greyness of the old brickwork was lifted by sunshine. Two fine British bobbies stood on duty, out of TV shot but either side of No 10. Suited detectives guarded the Jaguar waiting to whisk her north. A few Foreign Office staff stood behind a large, wrought-iron gate directly opposite Mrs May, watching her, rapt. One of them was a woman in Muslim head-dress. Attempts to divide our society would not succeed, said Mrs May. She cited the ‘countless acts of kindness’ that had been seen in Manchester after the attack. The images we hold in our minds should not be those of the senseless slaughter but of the ordinary men and woman who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help.’ Donald Trump, in his own, direct and welcome way, may have mocked the terrorists as ‘losers’ but vicar’s daughter Mrs May was finding her own way of asserting our values. There was nothing boastful or histrionic in her remarks. She voiced a controlled, civilised outrage at this assault on Manchester’s defenceless children and their families. Our Prime Minister – and yes, that is very much what she sounded yesterday – is not a woman given easily to emotion. In the past some have accused her of being robotic. Not yesterday, they wouldn’t have done. Not yesterday. She was poised, sympathetic, sturdy. She spoke her piece well. JAMES HARKIN: How Ariana Grande and her revealing stage outfits are a symbol of everything Islamists hate Now that it seems likely the atrocity in Manchester was carried out by a freelance 'soldier' allied to Islamic State, there's good reason to think neither the venue nor the performer were chosen at random. Why would anyone target a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande? The grim answer may lie in the fact that with her revealing stage outfits, her stockings, pink bunny ears and unabashed sexual confidence, 23-year-old Miss Grande is a symbol of everything Islamists hate. According to the purist, medieval interpretation of the Koran favoured by Islamic State, almost everything about Western music, and the Western lifestyle that goes with it, is haram, or forbidden — and so merits a death sentence. Indeed, one claim of responsibility for Monday's attack stated: 'The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena.' Those unfortunate enough to live in Islamic State's caliphate have experience of this doctrine. Three years ago, the then fledgling Islamic State issued a statement that read: 'Songs and music are forbidden in Islam, as they prevent one from the remembrance of God and the Koran, and are a temptation and corruption of the heart.' The directive went on to cite Koranic verses and Islamic teaching. One young Syrian I met when I was reporting in the region, who lived in the group's de facto capital of Raqqa, told me dolefully his best friend was thrown in jail for wearing a Metallica T-shirt celebrating the U.S. rock band. At the many checkpoints through which Syrians had to pass on their way out of Islamic State territory (back when they were allowed to leave), the militants paid as much attention to the length of men's beards and contents of their mobile phones as to their politics. Guards, many of them no more than boys, diligently searched mobile phones for any minor infractions of their religious laws: and that included music that 'insulted' Allah. In their sliding scale of punishments, I was told, a single pop song was rewarded by between 30 and 40 lashes with a whip or stick. In another incident in 2015, a group of musicians was reportedly sentenced to 90 lashes each for the 'crime' of playing an electronic keyboard. Like medieval inquisitors, converts to the Islamic State see Satan (shaytan) and supernatural beings (jinns) everywhere and in anything. In Syria and Iraq, their feared religious police (the hisbah) pay particular attention to teenage heavy metal music fans, which they consider the devil's work. Women are treated as inherently suspicious, and are forced to cover up and wear the face veil when outside and never to leave home without a chaperone. Thus the sight of Ariana Grande and her risque stage outfits would be anathema to the fanatics. In territory controlled by Islamic State, everything from pop music to musical instruments are banned as totems of godless Western decadence. That's why a group of masked Isis fighters were photographed two years ago in Libya — the country from which the Manchester suspect's family hail — burning a saxophone and drums. Even before Islamic State moved to create its state in the ruins of Syria and Iraq, there were signs this extremist sensibility was taking root among disgruntled young Muslims in our inner cities. In 2004, British police secretly recorded a cell of young Islamists discussing a possible attack on a London nightclub, on the basis that no one could 'turn round and say 'Oh, they were innocent', those slags dancing around'. Likewise, a car bomb parked outside Tiger Tiger nightclub in London's Piccadilly in 2007 seems to have been designed to coincide with a 'ladies' night' at the venue, in which the perpetrators might have hoped to kill and maim scantily clad young women drinking alcohol. The vehicle was packed with 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, and would have caused 'carnage', police said, if the bomb had not failed to detonate. (One great irony is that many of these young Islamists have a past of drug-dealing, debauchery and petty crime. Indeed, given all their injunctions against Western music, it's striking how many of those who travelled to the Islamic State from Britain — such as Londoner Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, once photographed in Syria holding a severed head — were failed rap musicians.) Now, as Islamic State territory in the Middle East is whittled away, its propaganda is urging supporters to strike back against 'disbelievers' by seeking out more music venues and nightclubs. So it was that an Islamic State gunman attacked a nightclub in Istanbul in the early hours of New Year's Day this year, killing 39 of that city's wealthy young set. Islamic State also directed the appalling massacre of 89 people at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in November 2015. On that night, a gig by the U.S. rock band Eagles of Death Metal was targeted with automatic rifles, grenades and suicide bombs as the jihadis made a blood-soaked statement against Western music and the lifestyle that goes with it. These Islamist puritans believe our Western way of life is on the verge of collapse and see their job as sending it to hell as quickly as possible. Their war is not so much with our governments as with the values we all live by, which is why they are prepared to slaughter innocent little girls clutching pink balloons on a night out with their mothers at a pop concert. James Harkin is director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism and a reporter on Syria and the rise of Islamic State.

The Lights Are Going Out All Over Europe

Posted on May 23, 2017 by Ray Starmann

We are 24 hours into another horrific terrorist attack committed by the insane, murdering disciples of Allah. Last night, in Manchester, England, a suicide bomber, identified as Salman Abedi detonated a massive bomb filled with nails. The explosion killed 22 and wounded 59 and the numbers are still rising. Those killed and wounded were young girls and teenagers who were attending an Ariana Grande concert. Right now, parents are still searching for their children who unaccounted for. That’s right. The target was young girls. Those who target children are out to commit genocide. This attack is just another in a long litany of ISIS and Islamic terrorist operations in Western Europe that includes: April 7, 2017 A man driving a hijacked beer truck struck pedestrians at a Stockholm department store, killing 4 people. March 22, 2017 A man drives his rented SUV into pedestrians at London’s Westminster Bridge, killing four people. The attacker then stabbed a police officer to death. Dec. 19, 2016 A hijacked truck plows through a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12. July 14, 2016 A truck driver targets Bastille Day revelers in Nice, killing 86. March 22, 2016 Suicide attacks on the Brussels airport and subway kill 32 and injure hundreds. The perpetrators have been closely linked to the group that carried out earlier attacks in Paris. Nov. 13, 2015 Islamic State-linked extremists attack the Bataclan concert hall and other sites across Paris, killing 130 people. A key suspect in the attack, 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, is arrested in Brussels on March 18, 2016. Feb. 14, 2015 A gunman kills Danish filmmaker Finn Noergaard and wounds three police officers in Copenhagen. A day later the gunman, Omar El-Hussein, attacks a synagogue, killing a Jewish guard and wounding two police officers before being shot dead. Jan. 7-9, 2015 A gun assault on the Paris offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and an attack on a kosher grocery store kills 17 people. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claims responsibility for the attack, saying it was in revenge for Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. May 24, 2014 Four people are killed at the Jewish Museum in Brussels by an intruder with a Kalashnikov. The accused is a former French fighter linked to the Islamic State group in Syria. May 22, 2013 Two al-Qaida-inspired extremists run down British soldier Lee Rigby in a London street, then stab and hack him to death. March 2012 A gunman claiming links to al-Qaida kills three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers in Toulouse, southern France. July 22, 2011 Anti-Muslim extremist Anders Behring Breivik plants a bomb in Oslo then launches a shooting massacre on a youth camp on Norway’s Utoya island, killing 77 people, many of them teenagers. Nov. 2, 2011 The offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris are firebombed after the satirical magazine runs a cover featuring a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. No one is injured. March 2, 2011 Islamic extremist Arid Uka shoots dead two U.S. airmen and injures two others at Frankfurt airport after apparently being inspired by a fake internet video purporting to show American atrocities in Afghanistan. July 7, 2005 52 commuters are killed in London when four al Qaida-inspired suicide bombers blow themselves up on three subway trains and a bus. March 11, 2004 Bombs on four Madrid commuter trains in the morning rush hour kill 191 people. Within hours after the Manchester attack, ISIS took responsibility for the monstrous episode. Of course they did. They also threw in a threat of more truck ramming attacks as well. Of course they did. They know they are dealing with worms that don’t have one millionth of the intestinal fortitude and desire for battle that their fathers and grandfathers and great-grandfathers had. The men of Western Europe are nothing more than emasculated twerps who have been devoured by the Nanny State and its odious values of feminism, socialism and cultural Marxism. The men of Western Europe are nothing more than socially castrated candyasses who are letting a Stone Age group of murderers and cutthroats rape, maim and kill their women while they dance on eggshells, afraid that they will say something Islamophobic. Where have you gone Winston Churchill? A continent turns its lonely eyes to you. The lights are going out in Europe now for the very reason that the leaders of Europe are aiding and abetting the murder of their own citizens and the very end of their nation states, their culture and their way of life. The lights are going out in Europe because the leaders of Western Europe have opened the doors to unlimited, unvetted Islamic immigration, giving millions of young, male Middle Eastern thugs an invitation to rape, pillage and plunder while receiving welfare benefits paid for by the gullible European taxpayer. The vipers are on the loose in Europe and there is nothing to stop them. Last night, BBC anchor Katy Kay said that the British should just accept terrorism as a normal part of life now. Yes, Britons, just accept your deaths. Breathe deeply and let the lethal injection take effect. Good God… Kay is just another mainstream media voice for the global elite who are overseeing the collapse of a continent. Anyone with the guts to voice their opinion is instantly chastised as a Nazi and an Islamophobe, who can’t accept change in society and who must instantly bow down to beautiful tolerance and diversity. Multiculturalism is wonderful. Islam is our friend. Hijabs are cool. Christianity is evil. In Britain and Germany, federal and state police forces troll social media sites, looking for dissidents who aren’t marching in line with EU policies. In fact, the Manchester Police were spending a good deal of their time hunting down those brave souls who would dare to tell their fellow citizens to stand up and fight against Islam. Daily Mail UK reporter Katie Hopkins was told by the Manchester Police that her Tweets demanding that British men take action were under investigation. That is how the police and security services of Europe respond to Islamic terror, they seek out and destroy their own citizens who wish to fight this evil. This is the new reality in Europe. This is the stuff of revolutions. And, what has the response been by Prime Minister Theresa May? Today, she parroted the same platitudes that the world has heard for the last five years. ‘We are outraged.’ ‘This is evil.’ ‘Britons shall be resolved.’ Not exactly the Iron Lady is she? The message to the UK is clear: knuckle under, put your head in the sand and wait for Achmed or Mohammed to cut your throat. Celebrate diversity Britain. Isn’t it wonderful? Theresa May will do nothing. Oh, sure there will be a couple arrests, a raid and a elevated security level, but there will be no strategic campaign to eradicate this filth from the face of the earth. By next week, it will be back to business as usual; letting Islam run over Western Europe like a speed bump on their way to a global caliphate. Right now, ISIS is no doubt laughing. They kill young English girls and how does England respond? They hold a worthless peace vigil in downtown Manchester. Today, they were holding hands and singing Kumbaya when they should be crying havoc and letting slip the dogs of war. If Western Europe has any chance of surviving this nightmare, the governments and the citizens must start fighting back. The very survival of Britain and Western Europe is hanging in the balance. The time for tolerance and political correctness is over. In his first speech as Prime Minister May 19, 1940, known forever as the Be Ye Men of Valour speech, Churchill rallied the British people while the Nazis were eyeing the white cliffs of Dover from France. Here are some highlights from the speech: Our task is not only to win the battle – but to win the war. After this battle in France abates its force, there will come the battle for our Island — for all that Britain is, and all the Britain means. That will be the struggle. In that supreme emergency we shall not hesitate to take every step, even the most drastic, to call forth from our people the last ounce and the last inch of effort of which they are capable. The interests of property, the hours of labor, are nothing compared with the struggle of life and honor, for right and freedom, to which we have vowed ourselves. I have received from the Chiefs of the French Republic, and in particular form its indomitable Prime Minister, M. Reynaud, the most sacred pledges that whatever happens they will fight to the end, be it bitter or be it glorious. Nay, if we fight to the end, it can only be glorious. Having received His Majesty’s commission, I have formed an Administration of men and women of every Party and of almost every point of view. We have differed and quarreled in the past; but now one bond unites us all — to wage war until victory is won, and never to surrender ourselves to servitude and shame, whatever the cost and the agony may be. this is one of the most awe-striking periods in the long history of France and Britain. It is also beyond doubt the most sublime. Side by side, unaided except by their kith and kin in the great Dominions and by the wide empires which rest beneath their shield – side by side, the British and French peoples have advanced to rescue not only Europe but mankind from the foulest and most soul-destroying tyranny which has ever darkened and stained the pages of history. Behind them – behind us- behind the Armies and Fleets of Britain and France – gather a group of shattered States and bludgeoned races: the Czechs, the Poles, the Norwegians, the Danes, the Dutch, the Belgians – upon all of whom the long night of barbarism will descend, unbroken even by a star of hope, unless we conquer, as conquer we must; as conquer we shall. Today is Trinity Sunday. Centuries ago words were written to be a call and a spur to the faithful servants of Truth and Justice: “Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be. The British and their continental cousins have a choice, FIGHT AND DESTROY THIS MONSTROUS EVIL OR DIE. Right now, it appears that more people in Europe would rather die than fight. That’s why the lights are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.

BREAKING: Wikileaks Emails Ties The Podesta Brothers To The Doctor Who Oversaw Seth Rich Before He Died

Posted on May 24, 2017 by Richard Saunders

Seth Rich died after he was shot multiple times on the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW which is three blocks east of Howard University Hospital and six minutes away from MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The Washington D.C. police report says Seth Rich survived the initial shootings and died later at the hospital. There have been no reports on which hospital he was taken to, but common sense indicates it would have had to been Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Howard University Hospital is closer and has an emergency room, but not for trauma surgery so Seth Rich had to have been taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The lead director of the Gold Surgery team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center is Jack Sava, MD. Jack Sava is in a relationship with Lisa Kountoupes. Multiple Wikileaks emails show Kountoupes and Sava connections with the Podesta brothers. How or why exactly did Rich pass away at the hospital? Kountoupes and Sava are on the guest list in this Podesta email https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/14833#searchresult . Check out the Excel spreadsheet (download).

The Republic Has Fallen: The Deep State’s Plot to Take Over America Has Succeeded

By John W. Whitehead May 23, 2017

“You have such a fervent, passionate, evangelical faith in this country…why in the name of God don’t you have any faith in the system of government you’re so hell-bent to protect? You want to defend the United States of America, then defend it with the tools it supplies you with—its Constitution. You ask for a mandate, General, from a ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight, when the country has its back turned.”—Seven Days in May (1964) No doubt about it. The coup d’etat has been successful. The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over. The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad. When in doubt, follow the money trail. It always points the way. Every successive president starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt has been bought—lock, stock and barrel—and made to dance to the tune of the Deep State. Even Dwight D. Eisenhower, the retired five-star Army general -turned-president who warned against the disastrous rise of misplaced power by the military industrial complex was complicit in contributing to the build-up of the military’s role in dictating national and international policy. Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC. Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic. Just recently, for instance, Trump—boasting about the “purchase of lots of beautiful military equipment because nobody makes it like the United States—agreed to sell Saudi Arabia more than $110 billion in military weapons and “tanks and helicopters for border security, ships for coastal security, intelligence-gathering aircraft, a missile-defense radar system, and cybersecurity tools.” Meanwhile, Trump—purportedly in an effort to balance the budget in 10 years—wants to slash government funding for programs for the poor, ranging from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments. The military doesn’t have to worry about tightening its belt, however. No, the military’s budget—with its trillion dollar wars, its $125 billion in administrative waste, and its contractor-driven price gouging that hits the American taxpayer where it hurts the most—will continue to grow, thanks to Trump. This is how you keep the Deep State in power. The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, the military will get more militaristic, America’s endless wars will get more endless, and the prospect of peace will grow ever dimmer. As for the terrorists, they will keep on being played for pawns as long as Saudi Arabia remains their breeding ground and America remains the source of their weapons, training and know-how (15 of the 19 terrorists—including Osama bin Laden—who carried out the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia). Follow the money. It always points the way. As Bertram Gross noted in Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America, “evil now wears a friendlier face than ever before in American history.” Writing in 1980, Gross predicted a future in which he saw: …a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution. More broadly, consequences include widespread intervention in international politics through economic manipulation, covert action, or military invasion... This stealthy, creeping, silent coup that Gross prophesied is the same danger that writer Rod Serling warned against in the 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May, which put the military in charge of a coup that would institute martial law packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security. On the big screen, the military coup is foiled and the republic is saved in a matter of hours. In the real world, however, the plot thickens and spreads out over the past half century. We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’re certainly on that downward trajectory now, and things are moving fast. The question is no longer whether the U.S. government will be preyed upon and taken over by the military industrial complex. That’s a done deal. The “government of the people, by the people, for the people” has perished. It will not be revived or restored without a true revolution of values and a people’s rebellion the likes of which we may not see for a very long time. America is a profitable business interest for a very select few, and war—wars waged abroad against shadowy enemies and wars waged at home against the American people—has become the Deep State’s primary means of income. If America has been at war more than we’ve been at peace over the past half century, it’s because the country is in the clutches of a greedy military empire with a gargantuan, profit-driven appetite for war. Indeed, the U.S. has been involved in an average of at least one significant military action per year, “ranging from significant fighting in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan to lesser incursions in such far-flung countries as Kuwait, Bosnia, Pakistan, Libya, Grenada, Haiti and Panama… That total does not count more limited U.S. actions, such as drone strikes.” War is big business. In order to maintain a profit margin when there are no more wars to be fought abroad, one would either have to find new enemies abroad or focus on fighting a war at home, against the American people, and that’s exactly what we’re dealing with today. Wars waged abroad to the tune of trillions of dollars since 9/11. Military equipment sold to foreign enemies. Local police transformed into a standing army in the American homeland through millions of dollars’ worth of grants to local police agencies for military weapons, vehicles, training and assistance. The public acclimated to the sights and sounds of martial law through urban training exercises wherein military troops rappel from Black Hawk helicopters in cities across the country, from Miami and Chicago to Minneapolis, to domestic military training drills timed and formulated to coincide with or portend actual crises. The citizenry taught to fear and distrust each other and to welcome the metal detectors and pat downs in their schools, bag searches in their train stations, tanks and military weaponry used by their small town police forces, surveillance cameras in their traffic lights, police strip searches on their public roads, unwarranted blood draws at drunk driving checkpoints, whole body scanners in their airports, and government agents monitoring their communications. Had the government tried to ram such a state of affairs down our throats suddenly, it might have had a rebellion on its hands. Instead, the American people have been given the boiling frog treatment, immersed in water that slowly is heated up—degree by degree—so that they’ve fail to notice that they’re being trapped and cooked and killed. “We the people” are in hot water now. As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the Constitution doesn’t stand a chance against a federalized, globalized standing army protected by legislative, judicial and executive branches that are all on the same side, no matter what political views they subscribe to: suffice it to say, they are not on our side or the side of freedom. From Clinton to Bush, then Obama and now Trump, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same thing over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination. The republic has fallen to fascism with a smile. As Bertram Gross wrote in what may have been his most prescient warning: In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote a popular novel in which a racist, anti-Semitic, flag-waving, army-backed demagogue wins the 1936 presidential election and proceeds to establish an Americanized version of Nazi Germany. The title, It Can't Happen Here, was a tongue-in-cheek warning that it might. But the "it" Lewis referred to is unlikely to happen again any place... Anyone looking for black shirts, mass parties, or men on horseback will miss the telltale clues of creeping fascism. In any First World country of advanced capitalism, the new fascism will be colored by national and cultural heritage, ethnic and religious composition, formal political structure, and geopolitical environment... In America, it would be supermodern and multi-ethnic-as American as Madison Avenue, executive luncheons, credit cards, and apple pie. It would be fascism with a smile. As a warning against its cosmetic facade, subtle manipulation, and velvet gloves, I call it friendly fascism. What scares me most is its subtle appeal. I am worried by those who fail to remember-or have never learned -that Big Business-Big Government partnerships, backed up by other elements, were the central facts behind the power structures of old fascism in the days of Mussolini, Hitler, and the Japanese empire builders. I am worried by those who quibble about labels… I am upset with those who prefer to remain spectators until it may be too late… I am appalled by those who stiffly maintain that nothing can be done until things get worse or the system has been changed. I am afraid of inaction. I am afraid of those who will heed no warnings and who wait for some revelation, research, or technology to offer a perfect solution. I am afraid of those who do not see that some of the best in America has been the product of promises and that the promises of the past are not enough for the future. I am dismayed by those who will not hope, who will not commit themselves to something larger than themselves, of those who are afraid of true democracy or even its pursuit. Elections will not save us. Learn the treacherous lessons of 2008 and 2016: presidential elections have made a mockery of our constitutional system of government, suggesting that our votes can make a difference when, in fact, they merely serve to maintain the status quo. Don’t delay. Start now—in your own communities, in your schools, at your city council meetings, in newspaper editorials, at protests—by pushing back against laws that are unjust, police departments that overreach, politicians that don’t listen to their constituents, and a system of government that grows more tyrannical by the day. If you wait until 2020 to rescue our republic from the clutches of the Deep State, it will be too late. WC: 1908

Insiders Warn 'Lives Are At Stake' From Deep State Intel Community Leakers & They 'Need To Be Tracked Down'

- Congressional Testimony Today Also Proves MSM Still Publishing Fake News

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

While watching and listening to congressional testimony during the House of Representatives hearing into the Russia Probe can be overwhelmingly boring, as politicians want to spend more time droning on before actually getting to any pertinent questions of the witnesses, some noteworthy information does eventually come out. Such as the NYT "story" last week claiming President Trump attempted to pressure former FBI Director James Comey into dropping his investigation into Michael Flynn, according to a memo the NYT hadn't seen and wasn't in possession of, and according to "unnamed sources, which was rebutted by Comey himself before his firing, and the newly released Washington Post story, again using "anonymous," sources, claiming that "Trump asked intelligence chiefs to push back against FBI collusion probe after Comey revealed its existence," is all bogus... FAKE NEWS, according to Former CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan testified today and we have some clips relating to national security and the dangerous leaks via members of the intelligence community, with the full two-hour segment at the bottom of the article for those interested, where Brennan asserts that no one in the intelligence community has shared any concerns that "the president was attempting to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation." Schiff then asked "Are you aware of any efforts the president has made to enlist the help of the intelligence community to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue," a question which comes directly from the newly released Washington Post fake news story, Brennan responds with "I am unaware of it." Below you can hear Comey himself saying that an administration technically can halt an FBI investigation but it is not something he has witnessed in his experience, "because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something without an appropriate purpose. " He continued on to state "Often times they give us opinions that we don't see a case there so you ought to stop investing resources in it, but I'm talking about a situation where we're told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It's not happened in my experience." Which means if Comey now asserts something different, he will either have lied to Congress above, or he is lying now after he was fired. The next clip has Representative Trey Gowdy questioning Brennan on intelligence community leaks to the MSM, and what it means, where Brennan states unequivocally that those in the intelligence community that are leaking classified information to the media are "violating their oath to protect classified information. In the next clip Brennan states in no uncertain terms that those leaks to the press are "appalling" and the leakers "need to be tracked down." Last but not least, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats says that the "leaks have become a very significant, played a very significant negative role relative to our national security. The release of information not only undermines confidence in our allies, but our ability to maintain secure information that we share with them. It jeopardizes sources and methods that are invaluable to our ability to find out what's going on and what those threats are. Lives are at stake in many instances and leaks jeopardize those lives." Before getting to the bottom line, it is worth reiterating that "Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information" concerning the communication intelligence activities of the United States or any foreign government; or obtained by the processes of communication intelligence from the communications of any foreign government, knowing the same to have been obtained by such processes, is a criminal offence under 18 U.S. Code § 798, which "Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both." BOTTOM LINE We are dealing with two separate aspects of the continuous reports from the establishment mainstream media, where some of the reports, using "anonymous" or "unnamed" sources have turned out to be completely fake and bogus news, then we have names being revealed, such as Michael Flynn, that were leaked to the press by deep state intelligence community members, in violation of not only oaths to protect the information but against the law. The first aspect is the intelligence community leakers and the fact that they are breaking the law in revealing classified information, to which we just heard above are jeopardizing national security and lives. It would behoove the Trump administration to inform the public what actions are being taken to aggressively track them down and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. The second aspect is the media who 1) Is either making up their so-called "sources" on the articles that have been proven to be totally false, or; 2) Are being fed bogus information by deep state intelligence community leakers, and then rushing to print it in order to sabotage the President, in some cases without ever seeing the evidence to confirm its existence. What responsibility does the media have when they know that one of their sources is breaking US law, then they themselves are printing that classified information? As late as March 2017, the question of whether reporters themselves can be prosecuted for knowing publishing classified information, was discussed in Congress, when Gowdy asked Former FBI Director Comey "Is there an exception in the law for reporters who want to break a story?" Comey responded "Well, that's a harder question, as to whether a reporter incurs criminal liability by publishing classified information, and one probably beyond my ken. I'm not as good a lawyer as Mr. Schiff said I used to be." Gowdy then asked "Well, I don't know about that, but the statute does use the word publish, doesn't it?" Comey answered "It does, but that's a question I know the Department of Justice has struggled with through administration after administration." The question now becomes do the first amendment protections for "freedom of press" include the right to jeopardize national security and lives, as DNI Coats states that the leaks of classified information are doing?

The Trump Collapse Scapegoat Narrative Has Now Been Launched

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 02:37 Brandon Smith

Last week was a rather crazy one for the news feeds, with cyber attacks and “Comey memos” and a host of other wild mayhem, it may have been difficult for many people to keep track of it all. That said, there was one event that I think went partly under the radar, and I think it is an important signal for anyone concerned with the ongoing process of economic collapse in the U.S. Generally, the American public holds very little vigilance when it comes to economics. They are distinctly unaware of fundamental indicators such as commodities demand, energy usage, manufacturing, imports, exports and international shipping, etc. What they do take note of, and what the mainstream news will tell them about in 30 second blurbs, is the state of unemployment and whether stock markets were down for the day or up for the day. These two “indicators” are the extent of the average person’s exposure to fiscal health. This is why the Federal Reserve and the establishment have been meticulous over the past several years in their efforts to keep employment statistics highly manipulated to the positive side and why they have been injecting untold trillions into stocks around the world through various measures including no cost overnight loans. However, over the past couple of years something has changed. As I warned they would do in 2015 in my article The Real Reasons Why The Fed Will Hike Interest Rates, central banks including the Fed have been backing off of stimulus measures and they have now begun a series of interest rate hikes. Look at it this way — imagine the economy has a terminal disease and the only thing keeping it alive is a highly addictive drug called “free money.” It’s a rather terrible life, barely worth living, but the economy still has a faint pulse as long as the drug is administered. Now, what would happen if the Fed suddenly cuts off the drug supply? Well, the economy will die in a very frantic and horrible way. Low interest rates and Federal Reserve loans represent the purest form of the free money drug, even more so than the bailouts and QE. And now, those interest rates are rising, and the drug is being taken away. These marginal rate hikes might not seem like much — .25 basis points here and .25 basis points there. And they are not much, unless you are a corporation borrowing billions of dollars at a time so that you can stave off your exposure to quadrillions in derivatives debt and so that you can purchase massive shares in your own stock to keep its value artificially elevated. Cycling this borrowed cash and paying the Fed back is rather easy for such corporations as long as the loans are essentially free. But when they have to start paying interest on that cash, even at a low rate, the costs add up at lightning speed. ANY interest rate hikes in this environment make borrowing from the Fed untenable for corporations seeking to prop up their stocks and the stock market at large. In my estimation, based on previous Fed measures such as the removal of QE from the system in 2014, it takes around six to eight months for the effects of policy shifts by the Fed to become visible on the main street economy and in equities. I believe we are about to see the effects of interest rate hikes on our system within the next couple of months. I put very little value in stock markets as an indicator of anything. In reality, stocks are a fraudulent circus based on perceived value and perceived demand rather than true value and demand. In most cases, stocks crash in the FINAL phase of an economic collapse, not in the beginning phase. If you decide to start preparing for a crisis after a stock market decline then you are probably too late. I am revisiting this topic here because I want to remind people that the full and tantamount blame for any economic crisis (and the final phase market crash) in the near future is placed on the Federal Reserve and international banks. All future shocks to the financial system were made possible because the establishment and the Fed have gutted our economy, stuffed it with the fluff of fiat stimulus and left it to lumber aimlessly since 2009. Now, because of the Fed’s efforts, stocks have been rising for quite some time with only a few moments of obstruction, due again, to their policy shifts. These efforts have conjured a 20,000 point Dow Jones, but nothing else positive for the economy. The one constant, though, has always been low interest rates. With interest rates increasing, I would point out that market behavior has changed. The meteoric rise has stalled. In the past few months stocks have barely budged 1 percent either up or down per week. Except for last week when something strange happened; markets suddenly dropped nearly 400 points in a single day. Why? Well, that is a subject up for debate, but the majority of mainstream news outlets will tell you that it was all Donald Trump’s fault. I have been warning since long before the election that Trump’s presidency would be the perfect vehicle for central banks and international financiers to divert blame for the economic crisis that would inevitably explode once the Fed moved firmly into interest rate hikes. Every indication since my initial prediction shows that this is the case. The media was building the foundation of the narrative from the moment Trump won the election. Bloomberg was quick to publish its rather hilariously skewed propaganda on the matter, asserting that Trump was lucky to inherit an economy in ascendance and recovery because of the fiscal ingenuity of Barack Obama. This is of course utter nonsense. Obama and the Fed have created a zombie economy rotting from the inside out, nothing more. But, as Bloomberg noted rightly, any downturn within the system will indeed be blamed on the Trump administration. Fortune Magazine, adding to the narrative, outlined the view that the initial stock rally surrounding Trump’s election win was merely setting the stage for a surprise market crash. I continue to go one further than the mainstream media and say that the Trump administration is a giant cement shoe designed (deliberately) to drag conservatives and conservative principles down into the abyss as we are blamed by association for the financial calamity that will occur on Trump’s watch. Last week’s sudden market bloodletting is important in this regard; 400 points down is hardly a flesh wound to a 20,000 point Dow, but the media’s reaction to it was very revealing on what the future has in store. Multiple news outlets responded by immediately connecting the drop to Trump and the absurdity surrounding the “Comey memo” — a memo which no one in the public has seen proof of. The claim is that this level of turmoil around Trump might lead to impeachment and that the threat of impeachment would kill the stock market bounce which the media also claims was driven by Trump’s promises of corporate tax cuts. It's a lie built on another lie. It is interesting to me that the mainstream media never said the market drop was caused by “Comey’s turmoil,” or by “The Washington Post and The New York Times’ turmoil.” No, they called it “Trump’s trumoil.” Last week’s stock dive was, in my opinion, the official launch of the Trump collapse narrative. The establishment was beta testing it for months, but now, the program has gone live. Every single stock decline from now on, as well as the ultimate economic crash, which will become visible to the public in short order, will be blamed on Donald Trump and conservatives by extension. As I said, he is the perfect scapegoat. I have been very critical of Donald Trump recently, and it is my view, according to the evidence and his swift retraction of nearly every promise he made to the voters during his campaign, that Trump is controlled opposition. But, I would never lay the blame for our fiscal decline at his feet. Trump does not have the power to create that kind of disaster; only the global banks have that power. I’ll say it again — the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates into a major financial downturn. This will be the trigger for the next phase of collapse, not any drama surrounding Donald Trump. Everything else, from Comey to North Korea, is distraction. The Fed has done this before. In fact, the Fed has a habit of raising interest rates at the onset of economic instability or right in the middle of a downturn, as it did in 1928-1929 triggering the Great Depression, and in 1931, adding fuel to the fire of financial catastrophe. These particular catalyzing policy actions are partly what Ben Bernanke was referring to on Nov. 8, 2002, in a speech given at "A Conference to Honor Milton Friedman, the Paul Snowden Russell Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, On the Occasion of his 90th Birthday.” “In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn. Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.” Ben Bernanke finished his astonishingly honest assessment with a lie. They are indeed doing it again… but this time they have made sure they have a president and an entire political ideal to blame it on.

The Hopeless World of '13 Reasons': Toxic Culture, Toxic Consequences

John Stonestreet, Gina Dalfonzo

Ten years ago, Jay Asher, a novelist specializing in Young Adult fiction, saw his novel about a high school student who commits suicide become what the New York Times called “a stealthy hit with surprising staying power.” The book eventually reached the top of the Times’ paperback best-seller list. And ten years later, that novel, “Thirteen Reasons Why,” was turned into a Netflix series and is a cultural phenomenon. If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve heard about the series. If you’re a parent in a place like Colorado Springs, where literally dozens of teenagers have committed suicide in recent years, you’re probably asking yourself whether the show will only make a bad situation worse. I’m not certain about the answer to that question. What I am certain about is that it most certainly won’t help. As my colleague Gina Dalfonzo wrote in her superb article at BreakPoint.org, while the creators thought that they were striking a blow against teen suicide, “the limited and flawed worldview they brought to it meant that they were deeply, dangerously wrong.” “13 Reasons Why” is set two weeks after a high school student named Hannah commits suicide. As Gina writes, “While her fellow students are still creating memorials and taking selfies in front of her locker, a bombshell drops on her friend Clay Jensen . . . A shoebox full of cassette recordings that Hannah created before her death is left with him—recordings addressed to 13 different people whom she says gave her reasons to kill herself.” Told in a combination of “flashbacks and present-day stories,” Hannah’s tale is set in a depiction of the high school experience that, in Gina’s words, “makes ‘Lord of the Flies’ look like ‘Gilligan’s Island.’ Drugs and alcohol flow freely, bullying and sexual assault are facts of life, an innocent photograph or a few whispers can wreck a reputation, and the person who’s your best friend today could turn on you tomorrow.” It’s an experience that leaves the viewer wondering “how anyone could survive.” The answer seems to be “you can’t, unless you’re a sociopath.” Where does this leave non-sociopaths? Certainly not with hope. As Gina points out, nothing presented onscreen gives any reason to believe that the “poisonous atmosphere” can, much less will, get better. Against this backdrop, Hannah’s carefully-orchestrated suicide-plus-audio-revenge seems like a viable option. In fact, and this is the key flaw of the series, she seems to wield a power in death that she never did in life. Except, of course, she doesn’t. In real life, the kind of sociopaths and jerks who tormented her in life aren’t going to be too put out by an audio-cassette from the beyond. It’s cutting off your nose to spite your face times infinity. The only person tormented is the one Hannah admired, Clay. And he’s left “haunted by the thought that Hannah died because he was ‘afraid to love her,’” an idea that owes more to the movies than to real-life. In any case, as Gina points out, neither Clay nor his classmates have any “concept of the kind of love that actually does save.” As Gina correctly concludes, “Troubled kids need and deserve better.” The National Association of School Psychologists agrees, having issued the following statement: “We do not recommend that vulnerable youth, especially those who have any degree of suicidal ideation, watch this series. Its powerful storytelling may lead impressionable viewers to romanticize the choices made by the characters and/or develop revenge fantasies.” Parents, we need to understand the impact that shows like this can have on our teens. And ultimately, we need to show our children what love really means—and where our hope in life truly lies.

Intelligence Leaks and Our Hypocritical Press

By Susan Stamper Brown , CP Guest Contributor

May 23, 2017 | 12:12 PM

A Harvard study published May 18 reveals what thoughtful Americans already knew: Extreme anti-Trump bias runs rampant in corporate media. The study found that CNN, CBS, and NBC produced more than 90 percent negative coverage during Trump's first 100 days, followed by the New York Times at 87 percent, and the Washington Post, 83 percent. Only Fox News offered close to balanced coverage with 52 percent negative coverage. That explains why the week was filled with over-the-top reporting about President Trump sharing sensitive intelligence with Russian officials visiting the White House. Reportedly, the disclosure included information that ISIS has developed a way to mask bombs inside laptop computers that can slip undetected through airport screening. The overdramatic hype about Trump doing what every president before him has done to share information with an ally to prevent a terror attack is a head-scratcher to those who recall the events of September 11, 2001 as a bad thing. We are aware of these details thanks to an agenda-driven media lacking discretion and leakers lacking a conscience. Who in their right mind would leak to the public information that burns intelligence sources? It's obvious there is no longer an ethical code by which most of the press abides. Those whispering secrets to the wind do so for a reason. Given the unprecedented volume of leaks and the Obama administration's lack of integrity, someone should re-sweep the White House for bugs. If it is "treasonous" for the president to share information to protect lives with an ally behind White House closed doors, then what shall we call it when a blabbermouth leaks this sensitive information to media organizations, which in turn proverbially broadcasts it with a bullhorn? This is not about the First Amendment; we're talking about discretion. It's also about intent. If anonymous sources are not authorized to speak publicly about intelligence matters but share them with the media, we should focus on prosecuting both the leaker and culpable media. t the very least, fed-up Americans should cancel subscriptions to the Washington Post and New York Times and stop watching news channels that care more about destroying the president than they do about protecting American lives. Sure, Trump's methods might be questionable, but what's not in dispute is his pure-hearted desire to keep Americans safe. The same media in full throttle to destroy Donald Trump performed journalistic backflips to protect the proverbial WikiLeaks of all presidential administrations, the Obama administration, which sprung so many leaks even Flex Seal wouldn't help. Leaks such as the time the Obama administration put a proverbial target on Navy SEAL Team 6 operators' backs when it leaked key operational details about the Osama bin Laden raid, blabbing about SEAL Team 6's participation. To this day, family members blame the Obama administration for what they believe was retaliation when the Taliban later downed a helicopter in Afghanistan which killed 30 soldiers, including 15 SEAL Team 6 members. In 2012, Obama leaked sensitive details about an "underwear-bombing" plot and the mission was forced to a standstill because of that leak, which former House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers suggested was utilized to generate positive press and boost Obama's reelection chances. The media also snoozed as the pantsuit queen they pre-crowned as president was caught transporting classified emails on an illegal server hidden in a bathroom. It was "nothing to see here" even when evidence unfolded about a complex scheme to conceal or destroy emails and burn or hide potentially damning daily calendar entries. Every administration has intelligence leaks. The current leaks are due to a convoluted effort intended to hurt President Trump, while Obama's leaks were about making him look good. What they have in common is the press involvement which ends up potentially endangering human life.

I'm Sick of News Anchors Telling Us Not to Rush to Judgment on Terror Attacks

1:00PM EDT 5/23/2017 Todd Starnes

The photos and the video and the sounds have become all too familiar. A flash of light—a massive explosion—horrified screams of the dying and wounded. his time in Manchester, England—at a concert filled with young teenagers and their parents. That was supposed to be a night of music and dancing and childhood frivolity—ended in carnage. Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible," President Trump said. "Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity." an untold number of children and their parents were massacred by Islamic radicals—killed in the name of the religion of peace. In response—there have been candlelight vigils and calls for peace and understanding—but the Muslim jihadists do not want peace. They want death. he Islamic radicals will not stop until they have killed every last one of us—Christians, Jews, gay, straight. The time has come to eliminate this evil from the face of the planet. The time has come for nations around the world to stop appeasing the Islamists. We must drive out the terrorists and extremists from our midst, obliterate this evil ideology and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world," the president said. "All civilized nations must be united in this effort." And we must do our part in the United States. We must secure our borders, we must investigate those who come here from the birthplace of this radical ideology and we must do whatever is necessary to prevent American blood from being shed on American soil. et, there are still apologists for the radical Islamists—from Hollywood to the halls of Congress. They seem to think we can win over the hearts and minds of the jihadists with bouquets of flowers and gentle hugs. That sort of philosophy is not only foolish but it's downright dangerous. How many more times do we have to listen to breathless news anchors lecturing us about not rushing to judgment? The Presbyterians and the Lutherans are not the ones strapping on backpacks filled with nails and blowing themselves up. The Methodists and Baptists aren't beheading people. The Catholics are not flying jetliners into buildings. So spare us the politically correct garbage. How many more children must die at the hands of radical Muslims—slain in the name of the religion of peace? How many more citizens of the world must be sacrificed to satisfy the bloodlust of these brutal savages? How many more times, America? How many more times?

Manchester attack: Three more arrests in bomber investigation

Three more men have been arrested as police continue to investigate whether Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi acted alone. Abedi's 23-year-old brother has also been arrested. Abedi killed 22 and injured 64 when he blew himself up outside an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night. An off-duty policewoman is among the dead, the BBC understands. The UK terror threat level is now up to its highest level of "critical". This means more attacks may be imminent. Military personnel are being deployed to protect key sites. The Palace of Westminster has been closed to the public following police advice, and will not re-open until further notice, its website said. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: "[Monday's attack] was more sophisticated than some of the attacks we've seen before, and it seems likely - possible - that he wasn't doing this on his own." BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner said that the bomber is thought to have been a "mule", using a device built by someone else. An off-duty police officer - who has not yet been named - was also among those killed, the BBC understands. Her husband is believed to be critically ill and their two children were also injured. Of the 64 injured, 20 are in a critical condition, and some have lost limbs. Twelve of them are known to be children. Several people are still missing, including Eilidh MacLeod, 14, from Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Chloe Rutherford, 17, and Liam Curry, 19. Eilidh's friend, Laura MacIntyre, 15, who was also reported as missing, was later identified as one of the seriously injured in a Manchester hospital. The police believe they have now identified all those killed and informed their families. They will formally name the victims after post-mortem examinations, a process likely to take four or five days. A hotline has been set up for people concerned about loved ones - 0800 096 0095. Prime Minister Theresa May said soldiers are being placed at Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, embassies and the Palace of Westminster to support armed police in protecting the public. Military personnel may also be seen at other events over the coming weeks, such as concerts, Mrs May said, working under the command of police officers. She said she did not want people to feel "unduly alarmed" but said it was a "proportionate and sensible response". Mrs Rudd said 984 troops had been deployed in the first instance. Up to 3,800 are available. She said she "absolutely" expected the raising of the threat level to critical to be temporary, adding that the bomber had been known "up to a point" by the intelligence services. The highest threat level, which is decided by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre - a group of experts from the police, government departments and agencies - has only been reached twice before. The first time the threat level was raised to critical was in 2006 during a major operation to stop a plot to blow up transatlantic airliners with liquid bombs. The following year, security chiefs raised it once more as they hunted for the men who had tried to bomb a London nightclub and attacked Glasgow Airport. The Metropolitan Police says it has increased its presence across London. Meanwhile, Chelsea Football Club have cancelled their Premier League victory parade, due to take place in London on Sunday, so as not to divert police resources. In Northern Ireland, extra police officers have also been deployed at key sites and on transport networks. The next steps for police and MI5 UK 'irritated' by US leaks about bomber Who was the attacker? Salman Abedi is understood to be a 22-year-old born in Manchester to parents of Libyan descent, and a former University of Salford student. He attended Burnage Academy for Boys in Manchester between 2009-11. Hamid El-Sayed, who worked for the UN on tackling radicalisation and who now works at the University of Manchester, said Abedi had a "really bad relationship" with his family and his parents had tried but failed to keep him on the "right path". "Eventually he was doing very bad at his university, at his education, and he didn't complete, and they tried to take him back to Libya several times. He had difficulties adjusting to European lifestyle," he added. Abedi blew himself up in Manchester Arena's foyer shortly after 22:30 BST on Monday Fans were beginning to leave a concert by US singer Ariana Grande Witnesses at the arena described seeing metal nuts and bolts among the debris of Monday's bomb, and spoke about the fear and confusion that gripped concert-goers The arena bombing is the worst attack in the UK since the 7 July bombings in 2005, in which 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers So-called Islamic State has said - via IS channels on the messaging app Telegram - it was behind the attack, but this has not been verified A former classmate of Abedi's told the BBC that he was a "very jokey lad" but also "very short tempered" and would get angry at "the littlest thing". The man, who did not want to be identified, said Abedi was "away at random times throughout the year" but he did not know if he was abroad or playing truant because he hung around "the wrong crowd and was very, very gullible". "You could tell him anything and he would pretty much fall for it." He said that, before leaving the school in 2011, Abedi became "more and more religious" and that this might explain why he cut ties with former classmates. Apart from the three arrests in south Manchester on Wednesday, Abedi's older brother Ismael was arrested in Chorlton, south Manchester, on Tuesday in connection with the attack. On Wednesday afternoon, police raided a block of flats near Manchester Piccadilly station in the city centre, requiring them to briefly close the railway line. Met Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who is the national counter-terrorism policing lead, said the investigation was "fast-moving and making good progress". "However, a critical line of inquiry is whether the dead terrorist was acting alone or part of a group," he said. "We still have critical lines of inquiry they're chasing down which has led to a level of uncertainty." Anyone with information about the attack can call the anti-terror hotline on 0800 789321.

The Trump budget is just telling the truth—and you can’t handle the truth!

Trump's budget begins to tell the hard truths to the American people. It's a "taxpayer first" plan, which is what any sustainable budget needs to be. More harsh truths are needed, but this is a good start.

America finally has something it's needed for decades: A budget that starts to tell the truth. And some people don't seem to be able to handle the truth. But they need to start. The truth is coming in the form of the White House budget that calls for major cuts to entitlement programs that are not sustainable, taxes that punish productivity and growth, and the fundamental understanding that politicians cannot be trusted to spend our money. That is, it at least begins to deliver the truth. Let's start with what it gets right in the reality department. The screaming headlines are all about that truth right now as every major news outlet has chosen to focus on the cuts the Trump budget makes to food stamps, Medicaid, student loans, and agencies like the EPA and the Department of Education. Do any of those articles or the angry members of Congress quoted in them include anything about how these spending programs are unsustainable as they are now anyway? Do they include any arguments about how the overstretched "safety net" of welfare programs provides aid to too many people who aren't actually poor, thus reducing the amount of funds available for the truly needy? Do they include any of the arguments that so many federal agencies like the EPA and the Education Department aren't truly needed in their current sizes? How about some information on how student loan guarantees from Washington are a major source of tuition inflation? Don't be ridiculous. "The unicorns aren't coming, and it's time for our elected leaders to stop pretending only the politically easy-to-cut programs should go." But the Trump budget does just that by simply calling for those cuts because "ridiculous" is really the best word to describe anyone who thinks continuing to promise the American people unicorns like the massive increases to the budgets of all the above-mentioned programs aren't going to crowd out spending for almost anything else. The truth can be harsh, but ultimately it's kinder than having our presidents and members of Congress continue to lie to us. The unicorns aren't coming, and it's time for our elected leaders to stop pretending only the politically easy-to-cut programs should go. It's time to stop throwing the word "poor" around like it's nothing. The fact is, way too much of the so-called "safety net" has been stretched to people who are not poor by most definitions and are thus siphoning vital funding away from those who are truly at the economic bottom. Specifically, this problem has manifested itself with the massive expansions in the number of people on food stamps and taking federal disability payments that has not subsided even with the economic recovery coming out of the Great Recession. This says nothing of the significant fraud in these systems that such a bloated enrollment makes inevitable. 10 percent of Medicaid payments were found to have been improper in 2016 alone, according to the Government Accountability Office. That's $36 billion, for those of you counting at home. The massive expansions of just about all of the programs the Trump plan seeks to cut have led to a growing number of unemployed people in America who are just getting by on various forms and levels of government assistance. This puts an undue level of new strain on the people who actually are working and paying payroll and other taxes to prop up the rest of the country. Yes, Mitt Romney was roundly pilloried when he complained that 47 percent of the people would never vote for him because they pay no federal taxes. But what part of what Romney said was factually wrong? What part of what he said wasn't indicative of an unsustainable political and economic reality? The Trump budget at least starts to tell us the truth about what benefits can survive even in the short-term future. And there's another harsh but crucial reality in the Trump budget — it knows where the money comes from. Taxpayers. Somehow, prioritizing the people who actually provide us the money to spend in Washington has been portrayed as selfish or mean. Now, let's get to what the Trump budget gets wrong. In short, it still isn't "harsh" enough. So far, we have no details of any reforms to the three biggest problems in our budget: Medicare, Social Security, and Defense. No real anti-deficit and pro-taxpayer moves can be made permanent until all three of those programs are reformed and essentially cut. It's not surprising the White House plan doesn't make the hard choices on that three-headed fiscal monster considering it would make the current political firestorm over his other cuts look like a small campfire. The political class and the news media remains convinced that the public will never accept even the slightest cuts or even any significant changes to those programs, but that's just plain wrong. 41 percent of Americans don't believe that Social Security will even exist when they retire, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Are we supposed to believe that they won't stand for changes to a program they don't expect to be around for much longer? Politicians simply don't want to bother to make those tough choices and they're hiding behind the voters to avoid them. But first things first. You have to start telling the truth somewhere, and the Trump budget does the most truth telling since at least the cut-heavy Reagan budget in 1981 that helped launch a major economic expansion. Our debt is about $20 trillion, and the number of unfunded liabilities coming due in the future have some experts pegging our real debt at more like $200 trillion. There's not enough taxpayer money in the universe to cover those costs. With these harsh truths in mind, we have to remember that a budget that doesn't make the harsh cuts Trump's does simply isn't realistic. Oh, and there's no such thing as unicorns either.

After School Satanist Club Wages War on the Bible Belt of America and They’re Coming For The Children 

By Nate Brown - 05/23/2017

The satanic temple is coming for the Bible Belt, and they’re gunning for the children. Through an organization called the After School Satan Club, the satanic temple is attempting to sway the minds of the youth into satanism. Children are vital to the continuation of the Christian faith, and as if cultural, ideological subversion wasn’t bad enough for them, Satan wants to place pressure on their minds after school. Several locations around America have fallen victim to weak local governance and in turn, have started to see the satanic organization spread into the minds of the youth. However, now the satanic temple is coming after the Bible Belt; A new religious program led by Satanists is pushing to expand into the Bible Belt this Fall. It’s called the After School Satan Club and instead of worship, it teaches activism. Instead of God, it teaches evolution, rationalism and free inquiry. But residents in Shreveport call it evil. Arturo Alderete said, “I think kids at that age shouldn’t be involved with that kind of stuff you know. It doesn’t sound too good to me.” Stacy McDonald agreed calling the after school program, “terrible.” Jaqeline Jackson added, “Some kids will take it too far and do different things that is not nice to other people.” KTBS-3 checked with school districts in Caddo, Bossier and Texarkana, Texas. District spokesperson’s confirm no application has been made with its respective school districts. But do confirm after school satan club’s won’t be banned. A huge concern for parents, who are watching the program gain traction. “Well we should learn about Satan, but we should learn about the truth. The fact is he’s a liar and he can’t tell the truth and he’s all out for killing, stealing, and distruction. There’s nothing good about anything he does and he’s not any good for anybody unless they want to be like him.” said Kelly McCabe. – Read More We, at the Christian Truther have been tracking the satanic organizations movements for the last couple of years, to the best of our ability, and the exponential growth is rather alarming, see the trend here.

With Warnings Of 'Much Worse To Come', Are Our Enemies Preparing To Use 'Food As A Weapon' Against America?

The 'Vicious Cycle' Lives On As Cowardly Warnings Of 'It Has Only Just Begun' Ring Out

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die May 23, 2017

On the very same day the horrific and cowardly terrorist attack upon Manchester Arena in England took place, the story over at the Independent that the Drudge Report linked to on Monday reported ISIS terrorists have been testing chemical weapons upon human guinea pigs in what experts believe is a plot to contaminate Western food supplies. Experimenting with formulas that quickly dissolve in liquid with which they can poison food with, we quite literally see food being used as a weapon as the sickening story reports, the terrorists have used these poisons to kill their 'human guinea pigs' already. Claiming to have found 'the ideal, lethal poison', this Newsweek story reports ISIS is creating an 'elite chemical weapons cell' in the area near the border of Iraq and Syria with one expert claiming we're witnessing a throw back to the 1940's Nazi Germany. Chemical weapons expert Hamish de Bretton-Gordon told The Times: "This is a horrifying throwback to the Nazis who would test nerve agents on live humans. During the Second World War, the Nazis conducted thousands of deadly experiments with mustard gas on prisoners at Sachsenhausen concentration camp, near Berlin.” In this new story from Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit he reports that back in November, ISIS released a video with explicit instructions on how to make a home made bomb. The surreal screenshot from that video seen below is probably a far cry from what most Americans think of when they imagine ISIS creating bombs. And with recent warnings from their members that 'Manchester was only the beginning' and 'what comes next will be even worse', we can only imagine the carnage that one deranged extremist in the right career field could do to a restaurant full of diners or a grocery store full of food should they be given the right opportunity. According to this new story from Mac Slavo over at SHTFPlan, all of these recent stories from the MSM on ISIS poisoning our food supply should be looked at with alarm, especially now considering the attack of Monday night and the total meltdown mode the 'deep state', the DNC and MSM are in over the Seth Rich story. We've long been concerned that prior to allowing themselves to go down, 'the elite' will bring down a whole lot of people with them. Anybody else paying attention to what the 'Russian boogeyman' is distracting 'the masses' from? From Slavo: These stories support a new narrative being pushed by the media and our government. They’ve been saying the same thing for several weeks now: As the Islamic State crumbles, ISIS is morphing back into an underground organization that will focus less on holding territory, and more on conducting insidious terror attacks in the West. When you examine these stories together, and consider the fact that our government has been secretly helping ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria for years, we have to ask ourselves a very important question. Is the mainstream media priming the public for a major chemical weapons attack on the West; an attack that our government may be complicit in? Because it sure looks like they’re telling us to expect a chemical attack in the near future. ISIS is clearly a creation of the deep state, who are also desperately trying to co-opt President Trump’s administration. They want him to drag our country into yet another major war in the Middle East. And if their ISIS puppets pull off this kind of attack, they might just convince him to follow the warpath that they have laid out for him. In this new story from the Daily Caller they report that ISIS recently called upon their followers to 'hunt their prey' in the UK soon before the concert bombing. Earlier in May, ISIS magazine implored their followers to 'lure and kill unsuspecting people with false advertisements for jobs and apartments', quite literally putting millions of totally unsuspecting people in possible harms way. Just imagine responding to an advertisement for a job or an apartment and being met by a machete wielding psychopath screaming 'allahu akbar' instead. Giving us another reason to be very careful about strangers who we're meeting with even if it appears to be for a legitimate reason, such threats by terrorists have a way of reminding us to be vigilant at all times. There are unfortunately a lot of very bad people out there who want to do us harm simply for our religious beliefs or because we don't think like they do or because they've bought into the devil's ways. As this story over at the Daily Mail reports, ISIS followers celebrated the cowardly bombing that took far too many lives, showing us once again that 'free humanity' is dealing with the worst of the worst - those who celebrate the taking of the lives of the innocent. And as this new story from Slavo over at SHTFPlan reports, this despicable bombing could have possibly been stopped with alleged warnings posted to Twitter hours before the bombing that 'an incident' would occur. Slavo's story also reminds us why we here in America and those living in the UK and elsewhere in the 'free world' need to remain vigilant - a massive 'trojan horse' invasion has been allowed to occur in the West. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, saying that a soldier of their Kaliphate was directly involved: “With Allah’s grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the Crusaders in the British city of Manchester, in revenge for Allah’s religion, in an endeavor to terrorize the mushrikin, and in response to their transgressions against the land of the Muslims. The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena, resulting in 30 Crusaders being killed and 70 others being wounded. And what comes next will be more severe on the worshipers of the Cross and their allies, by Allah’s permission. And all praises due to Allah, Lord of the creation.” Now, just hours after the incident, it has been revealed by numerous mainstream reports that a member of the Islamic State made a threat approximately four hours before the explosion that killed at least 22 people. According to Express UK and Huffington Post, a user by the name of ‘owys663’ (now suspended) posted a Tweet in which he specifically identified Manchester as a terror target utilizing hashtags. That the Islamic State has claimed responsibility and that it is possible that the now suspended Islamic State twitter account posted this tweet ahead of time indicates significant coordination and planning. With 3,500 Islamic terrorists reportedly living in the United Kingdom, and with Islamic State actively working to develop chemical weapons of mass destruction, it appears that this is, indeed, just the beginning. While the first video below takes a look at the alleged new threats by ISIS upon the Western food supply, Britain's Nigel Farage joins Fox News Tucker Carlson in the 2nd video in which he claims the cowardly bombing on Monday night which was directly targeting England's youth marks a new low in all forms of terrorism. With ISIS now saying the brutal murders Monday will be "followed up by vehicle attacks in your streets", we see the 'trojan horse invasion' of America that President Trump spoke of as a candidate a warning to us all in 2017. As President Donald Trump recently stated during his speech on terrorism to Islamic nations, “the deadliest toll has been extracted from the innocent people of Arab and Muslim nations.” The optimism of the region, he said, was “held at bay by bloodshed and terror.” And he added: “There can be no co-existence with this violence.” Once again, we see the worst of the worst attacking the innocent. President Trump's words are proven in this brand new story out of the Philippines as Islamic extremists, backed by ISIS, take partial control over the town of Marawi, leading to countless deaths, power outages, complete chaos and a war zone where no one was expecting there to be one. Once again, the innocent people of Marawi are being terrorized by those holding extremist and evil beliefs. While Philippines president Duterte has been forced to impose martial law on the entire southern region for at least 60 days as heard in the final video below, with the 'trojan horse invasion' of America that was allowed to take place over the past 8 years, imagine an American city such as Detroit under the same kind of seige by those who hate America and are already here within. According to this new story over at Reuters, countries all over the world will be increasing security at major cultural and sports events following the Manchester bombing with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security specifically warning that Americans may also experience more security at public events. The vicious cycle lives on.

WATCH: Here's a Montage of Democrats Confirming They Have ZERO Evidence Trump Colluded with Russia

posted by Hannity.com Staff - 3 days ago

As the liberal left continues its desperate witch-hunt against Donald Trump and his presidency, let’s not forget that it was democratic leaders THEMSELVES that confirmed there wasn’t a single-shred of evidence connecting the Trump campaign to Russia. Alt-left activists and lawmakers have been calling for the President’s impeachment since his inauguration last January. Their main reason: collusion. The only problem is that not a single member of Congress has seen anything implicating the Trump team worked with Russia, and they know it. “We did not include any evidence in our report –and I say our that’s NSA, FBI, and CIA with my office, the director of national intelligence- that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians, there was no evidence of that included in our report,” said the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. “Have you see anything in either intelligence briefings, anything, to back up any of the accusations that you’ve made?” a reporter asked Maxine Waters. “No we have not,” she responded. "There's an awful lot of smoke there, let's put it that way," said Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. "People that might have said they were involved, to what extent they were involved, to what extent the president might have known about these people or whatever, there is nothing there from that standpoint that we have seen directly linking our president to any of that." Watch democratic leaders CONFIRM they have ZERO evidence above.

Ancestry.com takes DNA ownership rights from customers and their relatives

A word to the wise: Read the complete terms of service.

Don’t use the AncestryDNA testing service without actually reading the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. According to these legal contracts, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. The family history website Ancestry.com is selling a new DNA testing service called AncestryDNA. But the DNA and genetic data that Ancestry.com collects may be used against “you or a genetic relative.” According to its privacy policies, Ancestry.com takes ownership of your DNA forever. Your ownership of your DNA, on the other hand, is limited in years. It seems obvious that customers agree to this arrangement, since all of them must “click here to agree” to these terms. But, how many people really read those contacts before clicking to agree? And how many relatives of Ancestry.com customers are also reading? There are three significant provisions in the AncestryDNA Privacy Policy and Terms of Service to consider on behalf of yourself and your genetic relatives: (1) the perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide license to use your DNA; (2) the warning that DNA information may be used against “you or a genetic relative”; (3) your waiver of legal rights. 1. Perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use your DNA AncestryDNA, a service of Ancestry.com, owns the “World’s Largest Consumer DNA Database” that contains the DNA of more than 3 million people. The AncestryDNA service promises to, “uncover your ethnic mix, discover distant relatives, and find new details about your unique family history with a simple DNA test.” For the price of $99 dollars and a small saliva sample, AncestryDNA customers get an analysis of their genetic ethnicity and a list of potential relatives identified by genetic matching. Ancestry.com, on the other hand, gets free ownership of your genetic information forever. Technically, Ancestry.com will own your DNA even after you’re dead. Specifically, by submitting DNA to AncestryDNA, you agree to “grant AncestryDNA and the Ancestry Group Companies a perpetual, royalty-free, world-wide, transferable license to use your DNA, and any DNA you submit for any person from whom you obtained legal authorization as described in this Agreement, and to use, host, sublicense and distribute the resulting analysis to the extent and in the form or context we deem appropriate on or through any media or medium and with any technology or devices now known or hereafter developed or discovered.” Basically, Ancestry.com gets to use or distribute your DNA for any research or commercial purpose it decides and doesn’t have to pay you, or your heirs, a dime. Furthermore, Ancestry.com takes this royalty-free license in perpetuity (for all time) and can distribute the results of your DNA tests anywhere in the world and with any technology that exists, or will ever be invented. With this single contractual provision, customers are granting Ancestry.com the broadest possible rights to own and exploit their genetic information. The AncestryDNA terms also requires customers to confirm that, “You understand that by providing any DNA to us, you acquire no rights in any research or commercial products that may be developed by AncestryDNA that may relate to or otherwise embody your DNA.” Essentially, you still own your DNA, but so does Ancestry.com. And, you can commercialize your own DNA for money, but Ancestry.com is also allowed to monetize your DNA for millions of dollars and doesn’t have to compensate you. Although AncestryDNA customers provide voluntary consent to have their DNA used in commercial research projects, customers are free to withdraw consent, with a few exceptions. First, “data cannot be withdrawn from research already in progress or completed, or from published results and findings.” In those cases, Ancestry.com has access to data about you indefinitely. Secondly, if a customer withdraws their consent, Ancestry.com will take 30 days to cease using their data for research. Finally, withdrawing consent, “will not result in destruction of your DNA Sample or deletion of your Data from AncestryDNA products and services, unless you direct us otherwise.” Customers must jump through additional hoops if they want their DNA sample destroyed or their data deleted from AncestryDNA products and services. The Ancestry.com policy does not specify what “additional steps” are required. U.S. customers must contact Ancestry.com customer service at 1–800–958–9124 to find out. (Customers outside the United States must call separate customer service numbers.) 2. Warning that DNA information may be used against “you or a genetic relative” The Ancestry.com DNA testing service promises to analyze approximately 700,000 genetic markers. According to Ancestry.com, the service, “combines advanced DNA science with the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.” The results of an AncestryDNA analysis include information about “ethnicity across 26 regions/ethnicities and identifies potential relatives through DNA matching to others who have taken the AncestryDNA test.” AncestryDNA claims to use the “latest autosomal testing technology” to produce genetic identity reports and can combine the test results with “the world’s largest online family history resource to predict your genetic ethnicity and help you find new family connections.” In addition, AncestryDNA offers a genetic code profiling and matching service, advertising that “AncestryDNA can also help identify relationships with unknown relatives through a dynamic list of DNA matches.” This raises a thorny issue that Ancestry.com has not resolved: your exact DNA profile is unique to you, but a substantial portion of your DNA is identical to your relatives. Thus, Ancestry.com is able to take DNA from its customers and also their relatives. Even if you’ve never used Ancestry.com, but one of your genetic relatives has, the company may already own identifiable portions of your DNA. The personal “Genetic Data” collected by Ancestry.com includes “information derived from processing your DNA Sample through genomic, molecular, and computational analyses using various technologies, such as genotyping and whole or partial genome sequencing. Genetic Data is broader than just the results delivered to you when you use the AncestryDNA test and includes a range of DNA markers such as those associated with your health or other conditions.” In short, Ancestry.com holds genetic data that reveals your health and other conditions. Genetic diseases are disorders caused by abnormalities in a person’s DNA and are divided into three categories: single-gene disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, and Huntington’s disease, result from the mutation of the protein of a single gene; chromosome abnormalities, such as Down Syndrome, are caused by disorders of the whole chromosome; and multifactorial disorders, including breast cancer and Alzheimer’s disease, develop from mutations in multiple genes, often coupled with environmental causes. Genomics play a role in nine out of the top ten leading causes of death in the U.S., including cancer, heart disease, stroke, chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, influenza and pneumonia, septicemia, and kidney disease. Buried in the “Informed Consent” section, which is incorporated into the Terms of Service, Ancestry.com warns customers, “it is possible that information about you or a genetic relative could be revealed, such as that you or a relative are carriers of a particular disease. That information could be used by insurers to deny you insurance coverage, by law enforcement agencies to identify you or your relatives, and in some places, the data could be used by employers to deny employment.” This is a massive red flag. The data “you or a genetic relative” give to AncestryDNA could be used against “you or a genetic relative” by employers, insurers, and law enforcement. For example, a young woman named Theresa Morelli applied for individual disability insurance, consented to release of her medical records through the Medical Information Bureau (a credit reporting agency for medical history), and was approved for coverage. One month later, Morelli’s coverage was cancelled and premiums refunded when the insurer learned her father had Huntington’s disease, a genetic illness. Startlingly, the Medical Information Bureau (MIB) used Morelli’s broad consent to query her father’s physician, a doctor with whom she had no prior patient relationship. More importantly, the applicant herself wasn’t diagnosed with Huntington’s carrier status, but she suffered exclusion on the basis of a genetic predisposition in her family. Under a 1995 consent agreement with the Federal Trade Commission, the MIB and its members are required to comply with consumer protections of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Much like financial credit reports, all consumers are entitled to a free annual copy of their “medical report” file from the Medical Information Bureau (MIB). If the consumer discovers an error in her MIB medical credit report file, she must mail a letter to the MIB to begin the dispute process. Federal laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act of 2008 (GINA), contain protections that prohibit health insurers from requiring, using, and analyzing genetic information in health care coverage decisions. However, both laws contain glaring exceptions that allow for genetic discrimination in certain industries. Notably, no federal laws regulate the use of genetic information, genetic testing, and genetic discrimination for life insurance companies, long-term care insurers, and employers. An Ancestry.com DNA test is the impetus of a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Sergeant Cleon Brown, a white police officer in Hastings, Michigan against his employer, the Hastings Police Department, and several city employees. Curious about his own family history, Brown purchased an AncestryDNA genetic test and analysis report. The results surprised him Ancestry.com said his DNA was 18 percent sub-Saharan African. Brown “proudly told his colleagues at the police department” about his African ancestry. But not long after that, “his elation turned into misery.” According to Sergeant Brown’s complaint, his colleagues at the police department, “started whispering ‘Black Lives Matter’ while pumping their fists as they walked” past Brown. The complaint also alleges that the former mayor of Hastings participated in the racist teasing, by telling Brown a joke containing racist slurs. “I just never thought it would be in Hastings, saying, like, racist comments to me,” Brown said to the New York Times. In his lawsuit, Brown, a military veteran who has worked in law enforcement for 20 years, is seeking $500,000 in damages. The Ancestry.com Terms of Service also warns that genetic information in its possession can be used by state or federal law enforcement agencies “to identify you or your relatives.” With the rise of forensic evidence in criminal investigations, DNA is often considered incontrovertible evidence. To propel the use of DNA evidence in criminal investigations and prosecutions, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) operates the national Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) database. The CODIS DNA database, created and maintained by the FBI, consists of the following three levels of information: local DNA Index Systems (LDIS) where DNA profiles originate; state DNA Index Systems (SDIS) which allows for laboratories within states to share information; and the National DNA Index System (NDIS) which allows states to compare DNA information with one another. According to reports, the FBI’s CODIS software connects disparate databases including, arrestees, missing persons, convicted offenders, and forensic samples collected from crime scenes. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, federal law enforcement, the Army Laboratory, and Puerto Rico participate in national sharing of DNA profiles through the CODIS system. However, the FBI DNA database is not infallible. In 2015, the FBI said it discovered flawed data after it commissioned a study to retest DNA samples. In a bulletin sent to crime labs across the United States, the FBI surmised that DNA data errors were probably due to “clerical mistakes in transcriptions of the genotypes and to limitations of the old technology and software.” The FBI suspects that errors in DNA may go back as far as 1999. 3. Waiver of legal rights Are “you or a genetic relative” a customer of AncestryDNA? If so, Ancestry.com now has control over the DNA of “you or a genetic relative.” Should the warnings from Ancestry.com come to pass, and DNA information about “you or a genetic relative” is used against “you or a genetic relative” by any employer, insurer, or law enforcement, then “you or a genetic relative” have very limited legal rights. In its sales contract, Ancestry.com takes no responsibility. By consenting to the AncestryDNA Terms and Conditions, “you or a genetic relative” agree to hold the company harmless for any damages that AncestryDNA may cause unintentionally or purposefully. If “you or a genetic relative” are “dissatisfied with any portion of the Websites or the Services, or with any clause of these terms, as your sole and exclusive remedy you may discontinue using the Websites and the Services.” The only option for unhappy customers is to stop using AncestryDNA. In the event you or your genetic information cause harm, you agree to “defend, indemnify and hold harmless AncestryDNA, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees).” And customers beware, “you may be liable to others as well as to us if your account is used in violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement.” That means you could end up owing money to Ancestry.com, its attorneys, and others. The final indignity for Ancestry.com customers is that they must waive fundamental legal rights by agreeing to mandatory binding arbitration. With the exception of intellectual property rights disputes and certain small claims, Ancestry.com customers must pursue their disputes through arbitration, rather than court. In arbitration, the established legal rules of discovery, evidence, and trial by jury do not exist. Finally, if many AncestryDNA customers want to join together to file a lawsuit against Ancestry.com, they are prohibited. But in fairness, Ancestry.com similarly prohibits itself from joining with a bunch of others to file a class action lawsuit against you. By agreeing to the Terms and Conditions, “you and AncestryDNA agree that each may bring claims against the other only in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative action.” These arbitration provisions survive even if you cancel your AncestryDNA account. However, for good measure, Ancestry.com notes that, “this arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf.” 4. Conclusion To use the AncestryDNA service, customers must consent to the Ancestry.com Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. These are binding legal contracts between the customer and Ancestry.com. The most egregious of these terms gives Ancestry.com a free license to exploit your DNA for the rest of time. Customers must understand that turning over their DNA means a loss of complete ownership and control. Ancestry.com customers should also know they’re giving up the genetic privacy of themselves and their relatives. Before purchasing, individuals are advised to fully read and consider the Ancestry.com Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. If you become a customer, Ancestry.com owns your DNA for life and longer.

Gorka: President Trump Understands ‘We’ve Got to Destroy the Ideology of Jihadism If We’re Going to Win’

by John Hayward22 May 2017

Deputy Assistant to the President Dr. Sebastian Gorka, formerly National Security editor for Breitbart News, was a guest on Breitbart News Sunday with SiriusXM host Raheem Kassam. Gorka said one of the most important points to stress about President Trump’s trip to the Middle East is that it’s not an “apology tour,” as his predecessor President Obama’s tour of the Middle East has been derisively described. In particular, he said President Trump’s address to the leaders of Muslim nations in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Sunday was “completely different” from President Obama’s famous (or infamous) speech in Cairo in 2009. “You actually had the Muslim Brotherhood sitting in the front row, let’s remember that, at the beginning of apology tour,” Gorka said of Obama’s speech. Kassam noted President Trump used the words “terror” and “terrorism” 31 times in his speech, versus Gorka’s count of “zero” mentions by President Obama. “He did talk about Iran. He did talk about the threat of Shia terrorism,” Gorka said of Trump’s remarks. “But he was also explicit — he was talking to a room full of Sunni Arab leaders, and he said that ‘you must drive the terrorists out of your places of worship, out of your community.’” “I think it’s not a fair summation to say that it was of one side, with regard to who the terrorists are,” he said. “The bottom line is, everybody who’s been suffering — in the intelligence community, law enforcement, the military — with years and years of censorship, of political correctness, must be celebrating tonight. Because what else did he say? Unequivocally, this is a battle between good and evil,” Gorka said. He was enthusiastic that a “stake has been put through the heart” of “postmodern relativism” and “the secular interpretation of ‘Jobs for Jihadis,’” a reference to the Obama administration’s notorious contention that a good jobs program for terrorist recruits would help to defeat the Islamic State. Kassam expressed skepticism that tougher rhetoric, or measures such as a much-touted effort to cut off terrorist financing, would be game-changers. “The proof will be in what actually happens afterward,” Gorka promised. “I’ve always said the issue of terrorism financing is not a panacea. The terrorists need money to do what they do, but at the end of the day, look at the attack in Nice. You can rent a truck, steal a truck, and kill almost a hundred people. It’s part of the solution, but not the solution alone.” “With regards to counter-message, we need to have governments involved,” he continued. “We must have countries like Saudi Arabia that are home to Mecca and Medina, and Egypt which has the Al-Azhar, which is the most important theological institution in the Sunni world — they must be part of the solution.” “But I will say that it’s often non-governmental counter-messaging that is more effective,” he added. “It’s good to have this stuff, just to have this commitment, but there are already thousands of Muslims who are on our side, risking their lives every day on their blogs, in the media, pushing back on the jihadis. Those individuals must be supported as well, because at the end of the day it’s not a kinetic challenge. It’s not just about killing terrorists. Like Ronald Reagan, Maggie, St. John Paul II, we’ve got to destroy the ideology of jihadism if we’re going to win.” Kassam noted that many Americans are uncomfortable with the United States relying on Saudi Arabia, home to many of the 9/11 attackers, as a partner in the struggle against terrorism. “There are trends, there were historic events, individuals that were linked to Saudi Arabia,” Gorka acknowledged. “But to say the whole government, the whole administration is culpable — no, it was al-Qaeda.”Let’s not take the culpability, let’s not take the responsibility away from the individuals that did that act,” he urged. “Al-Qaeda wasn’t a product of the Saudi regime. Al-Qaeda was created by a Jordanian individual called Abdullah Azzam, when he built something called the Arab Services Bureau in the 1980s to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan, and hired an individual called Osama bin Laden to be his Number Two.” “Let’s be factual about where the threat comes from. State sponsorship of terrorism is still a problem. Look at the reception the president was given by the Saudi authorities. It’s clear that there are new winds blowing out of Riyadh as we speak,” he said. Gorka would not take it upon himself to say whether President Trump misspoke, or made a calculated decision to alter the speech, when he spoke of “Islamic terrorism” instead of “Islamist terrorism,” as the transcript stipulated. “I will allow the president to speak for himself. He knows very well what he’s saying, when he’s saying it,” Gorka said. “I think the important thing that he said is, ‘We are going to defeat the terrorists and send their wicked ideology into oblivion.’ Let’s take those words to the bank.” Looking forward to the rest of President Trump’s trip, Gorka’s advice was: “Hold on to your hats, because this trip is going to be an incredible success.” “Next it’s going to be Israel, then the Vatican, then the meeting of the advanced nations and NATO. You ain’t seen nothing yet, Raheem,” he promised.

3,000 jihadis on the streets of Britain: Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of radicalised men and women in their teens

More than 3,000 jihadis are in the UK, stretching the country’s security services

Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of suspects

Some 850 Britons are thought to have gone abroad to fight for the Islamic State

Up to 30 officers required to provide 24-hour monitoring of just one suspect

By Ian Drury Home Affairs Editor For The Daily Mail Published: 19:13 EDT, 23 May 2017 | Updated: 22:00 EDT, 23 May 2017

More than 3,000 jihadis are in the UK – stretching the country’s security services to breaking point. Spies and counter-terror police are struggling to monitor a flood of suspects, mainly radicalised men and women in their teens and early 20s. About 850 Britons are thought to have gone abroad to fight with so-called Islamic State as they took control of large swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq. But with the terror group being pushed out, extremists with British passports are fleeing back to the UK where authorities fear they may unleash a new wave of attacks. Although more than 100 have been killed, around half have returned home with battle experience and training in the use of explosives and firearms. The security services have also foiled at least 13 planned attacks in the past four years, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer, Acting Deputy Met Commissioner Mark Rowley, has revealed. The figures lay bare the scale of the terror threat facing the country from extremists. The flood of new jihadists is stretching the UK’s security services to breaking point, with up to 30 officers required to provide 24-hour monitoring of just one suspect. Restricted resources mean MI5 can watch around 50 terror suspects around the clock. As well as sophisticated plots to bomb transport hubs and shopping centres, jihadists in the UK are being groomed – often online – to carry out ‘lone wolf’ attacks using knives and vehicles. A chilling report also revealed that the wives and children of Islamic State fighters in Syria could be brainwashed into carrying out attacks after returning to Britain. Europol, the EU’s police intelligence agency, said many posed a grave danger because they had been radicalised and desensitised to extreme violence. In 2016-17, there were 380 terrorism-related arrests in the UK, compared to 307 in the previous 12 months – a rise of nearly 25 per cent. Anti-terror police stepped up arrests after Muslim convert Khalid Masood killed four pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March before stabbing a police officer to death. Meanwhile, in the past three years there were 386 terror-related convictions, according to figures from Scotland Yard. Donald Trump led international condemnation of the Manchester atrocity by branding bomber Salman Abedi an ‘evil loser’. President Trump told Theresa May in a phone call that the US stood in solidarity with Britain following the massacre which killed at least 22 people. He offered Mrs May assistance in the investigation and they agreed the targeting of children at a concert was ‘particularly wanton and depraved’, the White House said. The call came shortly after Mr Trump denounced those responsible for the atrocity as ‘evil losers’ and said the ‘wicked ideology’ should be ‘completely obliterated’. Newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron called Mrs May to offer his condolences and expressed his ‘horror and shock’ at the attack. German Chancellor Angela Merkel assured Britain that ‘Germany stands at your side’. Vladimir Putin also offered to boost anti-terror co-operation with the UK after the ‘inhuman’ attack at the concert. Former US president Barack Obama said: ‘Our hearts go out to those killed and wounded in Manchester. Americans will always stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of the UK.’ Only seven extremists have been placed under anti-terror orders watered down at the behest of the LibDems despite there being at least 3,000 fanatics at large in Britain. The so-called T-Pims - Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures - are the toughest tool the security services have to restrict the activities of terror plotters and sympathisers. They replaced the more restrictive Control Orders which were axed in 2011 at the bidding of then Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg following a row over human rights. T-Pims are supposed to ensure that the police and MI5 can protect the public from UK-based fanatics who cannot yet be prosecuted or deported by placing curbs on their movements and activities. Restrictions can relate to overseas travel and place of residence, and limits can be imposed on the possession and use of electronic communication devices. Suspects can also be required to live in a property up to 200 miles away from their home. But a statement slipped out to Parliament in December revealed that, as of the end of November, only seven T-Pims were in force. By contrast, in the months after the Paris attacks in 2015, almost 400 people were placed under house arrest in France by the authorities there. British courts have been accused of weakening T-Pims by chiselling away their conditions and making it very difficult for the security services to secure them. This has meant that they have become reluctant to seek them, fearing that they would be squandering thousands of pounds of taxpayers’ money on legal fees for little gain. Chris Phillips, the ex-head of the national counter terrorism and security office, said he did not believe the current regime of T-Pims was working. He said: ‘The number of people subjected to T-Pims is far too low given the number of extremists concerned. Last year Keith Vaz, then Labour chairman of the Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee, suggested Prime Minister Theresa May looked at bolstering the T-Pims ‘given that she had been under pressure from her Liberal Democrat colleagues in the Coalition government to abandon control orders.’ And in 2014, Lord Carlile, a LibDem peer who was the independent reviewer of terror legislation for 10 years, said control orders had been abandoned for ‘political reasons’. He added: ‘The evidence is clear that the absence of anything like control orders… is harming the ability of the authorities to restrict the activities of people that they identify as threats.’ Britain is currently facing a heightened terror threat. In March, IS sympathiser Khalid Masood, 52, murdered five and injured more than 50 in a vehicle-and-knife rampage outside Parliament. The fanatic was shot dead during the attack. The UK’s terror threat level is currently ‘severe’ - the second highest level - amid warnings that a jihadist atrocity is ‘highly likely’. Security chiefs have warned that hundreds of young Britons who joined Islamic State jihadists in Iraq and Syria have returned home, while others have brainwashed ‘lone wolf’ Muslims to carry out attacks. Control orders were introduced by Labour to deal with dangerous extremists who not be hauled before the courts but after 2010 they came under fire from the Lib Dems who said they were unfair because the suspects had not been found guilty of a crime. Under these suspects faced 16-hour curfews, an electronic tags, bans from meeting named individuals and using mobile phones and the internet, and could be forced to relocate to other parts of the country - ensuring they were not in touch with any jihadist allies. They were replaced by T-Pims with a reduced curfew requirement of ten hours and suspects were no longer restricted on where they could live. Terror suspects placed on control orders and T-Pims could also be required to surrender their passports so they could not travel outside Britain In an extraordinary security fiasco in February 2014, controls on seven of the most dangerous terror suspects in Britain – including two fanatics linked to the liquid bomb airline plot – were lifted and never renewed. It meant they were free to walk the UK’s streets under a cloak of state-sanctioned anonymity. Control orders were themselves a replacement for measures introduced in the wake of the September 11 attacks which allowed foreign national terror suspects to be detained indefinitely without trial. The measures were declared incompatible with human rights by Law Lords in 2004. No histrionics from Theresa - just controlled, civilised outrage: QUENTIN LETTS on the PM’s most powerful Downing Street statement A nearby clock tower had just tolled 11am when a plainly affected Theresa May stepped out of No 10 to make a statement about the killings. Normally the mood in Downing Street before a Prime Ministerial appearance crackles with chatter. Yesterday the mood of the Press corps was subdued. The shiny black door swung open and photographers’ shutters click-click-clicked. There was no other sound. No helicopter droned overhead, as sometimes happens. No crowd of protesters jeered slogans at the distant gates. And there were no lensmen’s exhortations of ‘over here, Theresa’, when they try to get her to look their way. Not yesterday. Just silence. She was in black trouser suit, black, flat shoes, respectful jewellery, tidy hair. The narrow legs of that trouser suit accentuated her slim-shouldered frame, more vulnerable than you might expect. As she came out of the doorway I was struck by how fragile and lonely she looked. Although on show, she retained a contemplative, sombre air. In some ways it was the expression of a churchgoer returning to her place after communion. Of course, she is the least lonely person in the country, constantly surrounded by aides and bodyguards and general to-do. Yet terrorism makes an island of the person at the top. She was the one who had to make the decisions and find words to reassure the nation. How to describe the indescribable? There was a pause as she braced herself for the off. Then: ‘I have just chaired a meeting of the Government’s emergency committee where we discussed the details of and the response to the appalling events in Manchester last night.’ And she was launched on a long, powerful statement in which she averred that ‘the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain’ would prevail. It was a spirit that ‘through years of conflict and terrorism has never been broken’ and never would be, she said. Her cadence turning Churchillian, she conceded ‘there will be difficult days ahead’ but the terrorists would not win. Mancunian and British solidarity would prove insuperable. The one chink in its armour, perhaps, came when she mentioned the children who had died, and the voice momentarily wobbled. May speeches are not always memorable. She can sometimes sound prosaic, the larynx doing that warbly, headmistressy thing. Not yesterday. She had not had any sleep and her timbre had sunk a note or two. Her weariness, stark lipstick contrasting with her pale skin, lent her grit. Though physically weary, she was tough inside. Downing Street makes a theatrical setting. The building’s facade is as flat as any stage back-wall and the bluey greyness of the old brickwork was lifted by sunshine. Two fine British bobbies stood on duty, out of TV shot but either side of No 10. Suited detectives guarded the Jaguar waiting to whisk her north. A few Foreign Office staff stood behind a large, wrought-iron gate directly opposite Mrs May, watching her, rapt. One of them was a woman in Muslim head-dress. Attempts to divide our society would not succeed, said Mrs May. She cited the ‘countless acts of kindness’ that had been seen in Manchester after the attack. The images we hold in our minds should not be those of the senseless slaughter but of the ordinary men and woman who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help.’ Donald Trump, in his own, direct and welcome way, may have mocked the terrorists as ‘losers’ but vicar’s daughter Mrs May was finding her own way of asserting our values. There was nothing boastful or histrionic in her remarks. She voiced a controlled, civilised outrage at this assault on Manchester’s defenceless children and their families. Our Prime Minister – and yes, that is very much what she sounded yesterday – is not a woman given easily to emotion. In the past some have accused her of being robotic. Not yesterday, they wouldn’t have done. Not yesterday. She was poised, sympathetic, sturdy. She spoke her piece well. JAMES HARKIN: How Ariana Grande and her revealing stage outfits are a symbol of everything Islamists hate Now that it seems likely the atrocity in Manchester was carried out by a freelance 'soldier' allied to Islamic State, there's good reason to think neither the venue nor the performer were chosen at random. Why would anyone target a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande? The grim answer may lie in the fact that with her revealing stage outfits, her stockings, pink bunny ears and unabashed sexual confidence, 23-year-old Miss Grande is a symbol of everything Islamists hate. According to the purist, medieval interpretation of the Koran favoured by Islamic State, almost everything about Western music, and the Western lifestyle that goes with it, is haram, or forbidden — and so merits a death sentence. Indeed, one claim of responsibility for Monday's attack stated: 'The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena.' Those unfortunate enough to live in Islamic State's caliphate have experience of this doctrine. Three years ago, the then fledgling Islamic State issued a statement that read: 'Songs and music are forbidden in Islam, as they prevent one from the remembrance of God and the Koran, and are a temptation and corruption of the heart.' The directive went on to cite Koranic verses and Islamic teaching. One young Syrian I met when I was reporting in the region, who lived in the group's de facto capital of Raqqa, told me dolefully his best friend was thrown in jail for wearing a Metallica T-shirt celebrating the U.S. rock band. At the many checkpoints through which Syrians had to pass on their way out of Islamic State territory (back when they were allowed to leave), the militants paid as much attention to the length of men's beards and contents of their mobile phones as to their politics. Guards, many of them no more than boys, diligently searched mobile phones for any minor infractions of their religious laws: and that included music that 'insulted' Allah. In their sliding scale of punishments, I was told, a single pop song was rewarded by between 30 and 40 lashes with a whip or stick. In another incident in 2015, a group of musicians was reportedly sentenced to 90 lashes each for the 'crime' of playing an electronic keyboard. Like medieval inquisitors, converts to the Islamic State see Satan (shaytan) and supernatural beings (jinns) everywhere and in anything. In Syria and Iraq, their feared religious police (the hisbah) pay particular attention to teenage heavy metal music fans, which they consider the devil's work. Women are treated as inherently suspicious, and are forced to cover up and wear the face veil when outside and never to leave home without a chaperone. Thus the sight of Ariana Grande and her risque stage outfits would be anathema to the fanatics. In territory controlled by Islamic State, everything from pop music to musical instruments are banned as totems of godless Western decadence. That's why a group of masked Isis fighters were photographed two years ago in Libya — the country from which the Manchester suspect's family hail — burning a saxophone and drums. Even before Islamic State moved to create its state in the ruins of Syria and Iraq, there were signs this extremist sensibility was taking root among disgruntled young Muslims in our inner cities. In 2004, British police secretly recorded a cell of young Islamists discussing a possible attack on a London nightclub, on the basis that no one could 'turn round and say 'Oh, they were innocent', those slags dancing around'. Likewise, a car bomb parked outside Tiger Tiger nightclub in London's Piccadilly in 2007 seems to have been designed to coincide with a 'ladies' night' at the venue, in which the perpetrators might have hoped to kill and maim scantily clad young women drinking alcohol. The vehicle was packed with 60 litres of petrol, gas cylinders and nails, and would have caused 'carnage', police said, if the bomb had not failed to detonate. (One great irony is that many of these young Islamists have a past of drug-dealing, debauchery and petty crime. Indeed, given all their injunctions against Western music, it's striking how many of those who travelled to the Islamic State from Britain — such as Londoner Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, once photographed in Syria holding a severed head — were failed rap musicians.) Now, as Islamic State territory in the Middle East is whittled away, its propaganda is urging supporters to strike back against 'disbelievers' by seeking out more music venues and nightclubs. So it was that an Islamic State gunman attacked a nightclub in Istanbul in the early hours of New Year's Day this year, killing 39 of that city's wealthy young set. Islamic State also directed the appalling massacre of 89 people at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris in November 2015. On that night, a gig by the U.S. rock band Eagles of Death Metal was targeted with automatic rifles, grenades and suicide bombs as the jihadis made a blood-soaked statement against Western music and the lifestyle that goes with it. These Islamist puritans believe our Western way of life is on the verge of collapse and see their job as sending it to hell as quickly as possible. Their war is not so much with our governments as with the values we all live by, which is why they are prepared to slaughter innocent little girls clutching pink balloons on a night out with their mothers at a pop concert. James Harkin is director of the Centre for Investigative Journalism and a reporter on Syria and the rise of Islamic State.

The Lights Are Going Out All Over Europe

Posted on May 23, 2017 by Ray Starmann

We are 24 hours into another horrific terrorist attack committed by the insane, murdering disciples of Allah. Last night, in Manchester, England, a suicide bomber, identified as Salman Abedi detonated a massive bomb filled with nails. The explosion killed 22 and wounded 59 and the numbers are still rising. Those killed and wounded were young girls and teenagers who were attending an Ariana Grande concert. Right now, parents are still searching for their children who unaccounted for. That’s right. The target was young girls. Those who target children are out to commit genocide. This attack is just another in a long litany of ISIS and Islamic terrorist operations in Western Europe that includes: April 7, 2017 A man driving a hijacked beer truck struck pedestrians at a Stockholm department store, killing 4 people. March 22, 2017 A man drives his rented SUV into pedestrians at London’s Westminster Bridge, killing four people. The attacker then stabbed a police officer to death. Dec. 19, 2016 A hijacked truck plows through a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12. July 14, 2016 A truck driver targets Bastille Day revelers in Nice, killing 86. March 22, 2016 Suicide attacks on the Brussels airport and subway kill 32 and injure hundreds. The perpetrators have been closely linked to the group that carried out earlier attacks in Paris. Nov. 13, 2015 Islamic State-linked extremists attack the Bataclan concert hall and other sites across Paris, killing 130 people. A key suspect in the attack, 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam, is arrested in Brussels on March 18, 2016. Feb. 14, 2015 A gunman kills Danish filmmaker Finn Noergaard and wounds three police officers in Copenhagen. A day later the gunman, Omar El-Hussein, attacks a synagogue, killing a Jewish guard and wounding two police officers before being shot dead. Jan. 7-9, 2015 A gun assault on the Paris offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and an attack on a kosher grocery store kills 17 people. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula claims responsibility for the attack, saying it was in revenge for Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. May 24, 2014 Four people are killed at the Jewish Museum in Brussels by an intruder with a Kalashnikov. The accused is a former French fighter linked to the Islamic State group in Syria. May 22, 2013 Two al-Qaida-inspired extremists run down British soldier Lee Rigby in a London street, then stab and hack him to death. March 2012 A gunman claiming links to al-Qaida kills three Jewish schoolchildren, a rabbi and three paratroopers in Toulouse, southern France. July 22, 2011 Anti-Muslim extremist Anders Behring Breivik plants a bomb in Oslo then launches a shooting massacre on a youth camp on Norway’s Utoya island, killing 77 people, many of them teenagers. Nov. 2, 2011 The offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris are firebombed after the satirical magazine runs a cover featuring a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. No one is injured. March 2, 2011 Islamic extremist Arid Uka shoots dead two U.S. airmen and injures two others at Frankfurt airport after apparently being inspired by a fake internet video purporting to show American atrocities in Afghanistan. July 7, 2005 52 commuters are killed in London when four al Qaida-inspired suicide bombers blow themselves up on three subway trains and a bus. March 11, 2004 Bombs on four Madrid commuter trains in the morning rush hour kill 191 people. Within hours after the Manchester attack, ISIS took responsibility for the monstrous episode. Of course they did. They also threw in a threat of more truck ramming attacks as well. Of course they did. They know they are dealing with worms that don’t have one millionth of the intestinal fortitude and desire for battle that their fathers and grandfathers and great-grandfathers had. The men of Western Europe are nothing more than emasculated twerps who have been devoured by the Nanny State and its odious values of feminism, socialism and cultural Marxism. The men of Western Europe are nothing more than socially castrated candyasses who are letting a Stone Age group of murderers and cutthroats rape, maim and kill their women while they dance on eggshells, afraid that they will say something Islamophobic. Where have you gone Winston Churchill? A continent turns its lonely eyes to you. The lights are going out in Europe now for the very reason that the leaders of Europe are aiding and abetting the murder of their own citizens and the very end of their nation states, their culture and their way of life. The lights are going out in Europe because the leaders of Western Europe have opened the doors to unlimited, unvetted Islamic immigration, giving millions of young, male Middle Eastern thugs an invitation to rape, pillage and plunder while receiving welfare benefits paid for by the gullible European taxpayer. The vipers are on the loose in Europe and there is nothing to stop them. Last night, BBC anchor Katy Kay said that the British should just accept terrorism as a normal part of life now. Yes, Britons, just accept your deaths. Breathe deeply and let the lethal injection take effect. Good God… Kay is just another mainstream media voice for the global elite who are overseeing the collapse of a continent. Anyone with the guts to voice their opinion is instantly chastised as a Nazi and an Islamophobe, who can’t accept change in society and who must instantly bow down to beautiful tolerance and diversity. Multiculturalism is wonderful. Islam is our friend. Hijabs are cool. Christianity is evil. In Britain and Germany, federal and state police forces troll social media sites, looking for dissidents who aren’t marching in line with EU policies. In fact, the Manchester Police were spending a good deal of their time hunting down those brave souls who would dare to tell their fellow citizens to stand up and fight against Islam. Daily Mail UK reporter Katie Hopkins was told by the Manchester Police that her Tweets demanding that British men take action were under investigation. That is how the police and security services of Europe respond to Islamic terror, they seek out and destroy their own citizens who wish to fight this evil. This is the new reality in Europe. This is the stuff of revolutions. And, what has the response been by Prime Minister Theresa May? Today, she parroted the same platitudes that the world has heard for the last five years. ‘We are outraged.’ ‘This is evil.’ ‘Britons shall be resolved.’ Not exactly the Iron Lady is she? The message to the UK is clear: knuckle under, put your head in the sand and wait for Achmed or Mohammed to cut your throat. Celebrate diversity Britain. Isn’t it wonderful? Theresa May will do nothing. Oh, sure there will be a couple arrests, a raid and a elevated security level, but there will be no strategic campaign to eradicate this filth from the face of the earth. By next week, it will be back to business as usual; letting Islam run over Western Europe like a speed bump on their way to a global caliphate. Right now, ISIS is no doubt laughing. They kill young English girls and how does England respond? They hold a worthless peace vigil in downtown Manchester. Today, they were holding hands and singing Kumbaya when they should be crying havoc and letting slip the dogs of war. If Western Europe has any chance of surviving this nightmare, the governments and the citizens must start fighting back. The very survival of Britain and Western Europe is hanging in the balance. The time for tolerance and political correctness is over. In his first speech as Prime Minister May 19, 1940, known forever as the Be Ye Men of Valour speech, Churchill rallied the British people while the Nazis were eyeing the white cliffs of Dover from France. Here are some highlights from the speech: Our task is not only to win the battle – but to win the war. After this battle in France abates its force, there will come the battle for our Island — for all that Britain is, and all the Britain means. That will be the struggle. In that supreme emergency we shall not hesitate to take every step, even the most drastic, to call forth from our people the last ounce and the last inch of effort of which they are capable. The interests of property, the hours of labor, are nothing compared with the struggle of life and honor, for right and freedom, to which we have vowed ourselves. I have received from the Chiefs of the French Republic, and in particular form its indomitable Prime Minister, M. Reynaud, the most sacred pledges that whatever happens they will fight to the end, be it bitter or be it glorious. Nay, if we fight to the end, it can only be glorious. Having received His Majesty’s commission, I have formed an Administration of men and women of every Party and of almost every point of view. We have differed and quarreled in the past; but now one bond unites us all — to wage war until victory is won, and never to surrender ourselves to servitude and shame, whatever the cost and the agony may be. this is one of the most awe-striking periods in the long history of France and Britain. It is also beyond doubt the most sublime. Side by side, unaided except by their kith and kin in the great Dominions and by the wide empires which rest beneath their shield – side by side, the British and French peoples have advanced to rescue not only Europe but mankind from the foulest and most soul-destroying tyranny which has ever darkened and stained the pages of history. Behind them – behind us- behind the Armies and Fleets of Britain and France – gather a group of shattered States and bludgeoned races: the Czechs, the Poles, the Norwegians, the Danes, the Dutch, the Belgians – upon all of whom the long night of barbarism will descend, unbroken even by a star of hope, unless we conquer, as conquer we must; as conquer we shall. Today is Trinity Sunday. Centuries ago words were written to be a call and a spur to the faithful servants of Truth and Justice: “Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be. The British and their continental cousins have a choice, FIGHT AND DESTROY THIS MONSTROUS EVIL OR DIE. Right now, it appears that more people in Europe would rather die than fight. That’s why the lights are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.

BREAKING: Wikileaks Emails Ties The Podesta Brothers To The Doctor Who Oversaw Seth Rich Before He Died

Posted on May 24, 2017 by Richard Saunders

Seth Rich died after he was shot multiple times on the 2100 block of Flagler Place NW which is three blocks east of Howard University Hospital and six minutes away from MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The Washington D.C. police report says Seth Rich survived the initial shootings and died later at the hospital. There have been no reports on which hospital he was taken to, but common sense indicates it would have had to been Medstar Washington Hospital Center. Howard University Hospital is closer and has an emergency room, but not for trauma surgery so Seth Rich had to have been taken to MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The lead director of the Gold Surgery team at MedStar Washington Hospital Center is Jack Sava, MD. Jack Sava is in a relationship with Lisa Kountoupes. Multiple Wikileaks emails show Kountoupes and Sava connections with the Podesta brothers. How or why exactly did Rich pass away at the hospital? Kountoupes and Sava are on the guest list in this Podesta email https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/14833#searchresult . Check out the Excel spreadsheet (download).

The Republic Has Fallen: The Deep State’s Plot to Take Over America Has Succeeded

By John W. Whitehead May 23, 2017

“You have such a fervent, passionate, evangelical faith in this country…why in the name of God don’t you have any faith in the system of government you’re so hell-bent to protect? You want to defend the United States of America, then defend it with the tools it supplies you with—its Constitution. You ask for a mandate, General, from a ballot box. You don’t steal it after midnight, when the country has its back turned.”—Seven Days in May (1964) No doubt about it. The coup d’etat has been successful. The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over. The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of martial law here at home and by fomenting wars abroad. When in doubt, follow the money trail. It always points the way. Every successive president starting with Franklin D. Roosevelt has been bought—lock, stock and barrel—and made to dance to the tune of the Deep State. Even Dwight D. Eisenhower, the retired five-star Army general -turned-president who warned against the disastrous rise of misplaced power by the military industrial complex was complicit in contributing to the build-up of the military’s role in dictating national and international policy. Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC. Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic. Just recently, for instance, Trump—boasting about the “purchase of lots of beautiful military equipment because nobody makes it like the United States—agreed to sell Saudi Arabia more than $110 billion in military weapons and “tanks and helicopters for border security, ships for coastal security, intelligence-gathering aircraft, a missile-defense radar system, and cybersecurity tools.” Meanwhile, Trump—purportedly in an effort to balance the budget in 10 years—wants to slash government funding for programs for the poor, ranging from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments. The military doesn’t have to worry about tightening its belt, however. No, the military’s budget—with its trillion dollar wars, its $125 billion in administrative waste, and its contractor-driven price gouging that hits the American taxpayer where it hurts the most—will continue to grow, thanks to Trump. This is how you keep the Deep State in power. The rich will get richer, the poor will get poorer, the military will get more militaristic, America’s endless wars will get more endless, and the prospect of peace will grow ever dimmer. As for the terrorists, they will keep on being played for pawns as long as Saudi Arabia remains their breeding ground and America remains the source of their weapons, training and know-how (15 of the 19 terrorists—including Osama bin Laden—who carried out the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia). Follow the money. It always points the way. As Bertram Gross noted in Friendly Fascism: The New Face of Power in America, “evil now wears a friendlier face than ever before in American history.” Writing in 1980, Gross predicted a future in which he saw: …a new despotism creeping slowly across America. Faceless oligarchs sit at command posts of a corporate-government complex that has been slowly evolving over many decades. In efforts to enlarge their own powers and privileges, they are willing to have others suffer the intended or unintended consequences of their institutional or personal greed. For Americans, these consequences include chronic inflation, recurring recession, open and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of air, water, soil and bodies, and, more important, the subversion of our constitution. More broadly, consequences include widespread intervention in international politics through economic manipulation, covert action, or military invasion... This stealthy, creeping, silent coup that Gross prophesied is the same danger that writer Rod Serling warned against in the 1964 political thriller Seven Days in May, which put the military in charge of a coup that would institute martial law packaged as a well-meaning and overriding concern for the nation’s security. On the big screen, the military coup is foiled and the republic is saved in a matter of hours. In the real world, however, the plot thickens and spreads out over the past half century. We’ve been losing our freedoms so incrementally for so long—sold to us in the name of national security and global peace, maintained by way of martial law disguised as law and order, and enforced by a standing army of militarized police and a political elite determined to maintain their powers at all costs—that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it all started going downhill, but we’re certainly on that downward trajectory now, and things are moving fast. The question is no longer whether the U.S. government will be preyed upon and taken over by the military industrial complex. That’s a done deal. The “government of the people, by the people, for the people” has perished. It will not be revived or restored without a true revolution of values and a people’s rebellion the likes of which we may not see for a very long time. America is a profitable business interest for a very select few, and war—wars waged abroad against shadowy enemies and wars waged at home against the American people—has become the Deep State’s primary means of income. If America has been at war more than we’ve been at peace over the past half century, it’s because the country is in the clutches of a greedy military empire with a gargantuan, profit-driven appetite for war. Indeed, the U.S. has been involved in an average of at least one significant military action per year, “ranging from significant fighting in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan to lesser incursions in such far-flung countries as Kuwait, Bosnia, Pakistan, Libya, Grenada, Haiti and Panama… That total does not count more limited U.S. actions, such as drone strikes.” War is big business. In order to maintain a profit margin when there are no more wars to be fought abroad, one would either have to find new enemies abroad or focus on fighting a war at home, against the American people, and that’s exactly what we’re dealing with today. Wars waged abroad to the tune of trillions of dollars since 9/11. Military equipment sold to foreign enemies. Local police transformed into a standing army in the American homeland through millions of dollars’ worth of grants to local police agencies for military weapons, vehicles, training and assistance. The public acclimated to the sights and sounds of martial law through urban training exercises wherein military troops rappel from Black Hawk helicopters in cities across the country, from Miami and Chicago to Minneapolis, to domestic military training drills timed and formulated to coincide with or portend actual crises. The citizenry taught to fear and distrust each other and to welcome the metal detectors and pat downs in their schools, bag searches in their train stations, tanks and military weaponry used by their small town police forces, surveillance cameras in their traffic lights, police strip searches on their public roads, unwarranted blood draws at drunk driving checkpoints, whole body scanners in their airports, and government agents monitoring their communications. Had the government tried to ram such a state of affairs down our throats suddenly, it might have had a rebellion on its hands. Instead, the American people have been given the boiling frog treatment, immersed in water that slowly is heated up—degree by degree—so that they’ve fail to notice that they’re being trapped and cooked and killed. “We the people” are in hot water now. As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the Constitution doesn’t stand a chance against a federalized, globalized standing army protected by legislative, judicial and executive branches that are all on the same side, no matter what political views they subscribe to: suffice it to say, they are not on our side or the side of freedom. From Clinton to Bush, then Obama and now Trump, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same thing over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination. The republic has fallen to fascism with a smile. As Bertram Gross wrote in what may have been his most prescient warning: In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote a popular novel in which a racist, anti-Semitic, flag-waving, army-backed demagogue wins the 1936 presidential election and proceeds to establish an Americanized version of Nazi Germany. The title, It Can't Happen Here, was a tongue-in-cheek warning that it might. But the "it" Lewis referred to is unlikely to happen again any place... Anyone looking for black shirts, mass parties, or men on horseback will miss the telltale clues of creeping fascism. In any First World country of advanced capitalism, the new fascism will be colored by national and cultural heritage, ethnic and religious composition, formal political structure, and geopolitical environment... In America, it would be supermodern and multi-ethnic-as American as Madison Avenue, executive luncheons, credit cards, and apple pie. It would be fascism with a smile. As a warning against its cosmetic facade, subtle manipulation, and velvet gloves, I call it friendly fascism. What scares me most is its subtle appeal. I am worried by those who fail to remember-or have never learned -that Big Business-Big Government partnerships, backed up by other elements, were the central facts behind the power structures of old fascism in the days of Mussolini, Hitler, and the Japanese empire builders. I am worried by those who quibble about labels… I am upset with those who prefer to remain spectators until it may be too late… I am appalled by those who stiffly maintain that nothing can be done until things get worse or the system has been changed. I am afraid of inaction. I am afraid of those who will heed no warnings and who wait for some revelation, research, or technology to offer a perfect solution. I am afraid of those who do not see that some of the best in America has been the product of promises and that the promises of the past are not enough for the future. I am dismayed by those who will not hope, who will not commit themselves to something larger than themselves, of those who are afraid of true democracy or even its pursuit. Elections will not save us. Learn the treacherous lessons of 2008 and 2016: presidential elections have made a mockery of our constitutional system of government, suggesting that our votes can make a difference when, in fact, they merely serve to maintain the status quo. Don’t delay. Start now—in your own communities, in your schools, at your city council meetings, in newspaper editorials, at protests—by pushing back against laws that are unjust, police departments that overreach, politicians that don’t listen to their constituents, and a system of government that grows more tyrannical by the day. If you wait until 2020 to rescue our republic from the clutches of the Deep State, it will be too late. WC: 1908

Insiders Warn 'Lives Are At Stake' From Deep State Intel Community Leakers & They 'Need To Be Tracked Down'

- Congressional Testimony Today Also Proves MSM Still Publishing Fake News

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

While watching and listening to congressional testimony during the House of Representatives hearing into the Russia Probe can be overwhelmingly boring, as politicians want to spend more time droning on before actually getting to any pertinent questions of the witnesses, some noteworthy information does eventually come out. Such as the NYT "story" last week claiming President Trump attempted to pressure former FBI Director James Comey into dropping his investigation into Michael Flynn, according to a memo the NYT hadn't seen and wasn't in possession of, and according to "unnamed sources, which was rebutted by Comey himself before his firing, and the newly released Washington Post story, again using "anonymous," sources, claiming that "Trump asked intelligence chiefs to push back against FBI collusion probe after Comey revealed its existence," is all bogus... FAKE NEWS, according to Former CIA Director John Brennan. Brennan testified today and we have some clips relating to national security and the dangerous leaks via members of the intelligence community, with the full two-hour segment at the bottom of the article for those interested, where Brennan asserts that no one in the intelligence community has shared any concerns that "the president was attempting to enlist the help of people within the intelligence community to drop the Flynn investigation." Schiff then asked "Are you aware of any efforts the president has made to enlist the help of the intelligence community to push back on a narrative involving the collusion issue," a question which comes directly from the newly released Washington Post fake news story, Brennan responds with "I am unaware of it." Below you can hear Comey himself saying that an administration technically can halt an FBI investigation but it is not something he has witnessed in his experience, "because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something without an appropriate purpose. " He continued on to state "Often times they give us opinions that we don't see a case there so you ought to stop investing resources in it, but I'm talking about a situation where we're told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It's not happened in my experience." Which means if Comey now asserts something different, he will either have lied to Congress above, or he is lying now after he was fired. The next clip has Representative Trey Gowdy questioning Brennan on intelligence community leaks to the MSM, and what it means, where Brennan states unequivocally that those in the intelligence community that are leaking classified information to the media are "violating their oath to protect classified information. In the next clip Brennan states in no uncertain terms that those leaks to the press are "appalling" and the leakers "need to be tracked down." Last but not least, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats says that the "leaks have become a very significant, played a very significant negative role relative to our national security. The release of information not only undermines confidence in our allies, but our ability to maintain secure information that we share with them. It jeopardizes sources and methods that are invaluable to our ability to find out what's going on and what those threats are. Lives are at stake in many instances and leaks jeopardize those lives." Before getting to the bottom line, it is worth reiterating that "Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information" concerning the communication intelligence activities of the United States or any foreign government; or obtained by the processes of communication intelligence from the communications of any foreign government, knowing the same to have been obtained by such processes, is a criminal offence under 18 U.S. Code § 798, which "Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both." BOTTOM LINE We are dealing with two separate aspects of the continuous reports from the establishment mainstream media, where some of the reports, using "anonymous" or "unnamed" sources have turned out to be completely fake and bogus news, then we have names being revealed, such as Michael Flynn, that were leaked to the press by deep state intelligence community members, in violation of not only oaths to protect the information but against the law. The first aspect is the intelligence community leakers and the fact that they are breaking the law in revealing classified information, to which we just heard above are jeopardizing national security and lives. It would behoove the Trump administration to inform the public what actions are being taken to aggressively track them down and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. The second aspect is the media who 1) Is either making up their so-called "sources" on the articles that have been proven to be totally false, or; 2) Are being fed bogus information by deep state intelligence community leakers, and then rushing to print it in order to sabotage the President, in some cases without ever seeing the evidence to confirm its existence. What responsibility does the media have when they know that one of their sources is breaking US law, then they themselves are printing that classified information? As late as March 2017, the question of whether reporters themselves can be prosecuted for knowing publishing classified information, was discussed in Congress, when Gowdy asked Former FBI Director Comey "Is there an exception in the law for reporters who want to break a story?" Comey responded "Well, that's a harder question, as to whether a reporter incurs criminal liability by publishing classified information, and one probably beyond my ken. I'm not as good a lawyer as Mr. Schiff said I used to be." Gowdy then asked "Well, I don't know about that, but the statute does use the word publish, doesn't it?" Comey answered "It does, but that's a question I know the Department of Justice has struggled with through administration after administration." The question now becomes do the first amendment protections for "freedom of press" include the right to jeopardize national security and lives, as DNI Coats states that the leaks of classified information are doing?

The Trump Collapse Scapegoat Narrative Has Now Been Launched

Wednesday, 24 May 2017 02:37 Brandon Smith

Last week was a rather crazy one for the news feeds, with cyber attacks and “Comey memos” and a host of other wild mayhem, it may have been difficult for many people to keep track of it all. That said, there was one event that I think went partly under the radar, and I think it is an important signal for anyone concerned with the ongoing process of economic collapse in the U.S. Generally, the American public holds very little vigilance when it comes to economics. They are distinctly unaware of fundamental indicators such as commodities demand, energy usage, manufacturing, imports, exports and international shipping, etc. What they do take note of, and what the mainstream news will tell them about in 30 second blurbs, is the state of unemployment and whether stock markets were down for the day or up for the day. These two “indicators” are the extent of the average person’s exposure to fiscal health. This is why the Federal Reserve and the establishment have been meticulous over the past several years in their efforts to keep employment statistics highly manipulated to the positive side and why they have been injecting untold trillions into stocks around the world through various measures including no cost overnight loans. However, over the past couple of years something has changed. As I warned they would do in 2015 in my article The Real Reasons Why The Fed Will Hike Interest Rates, central banks including the Fed have been backing off of stimulus measures and they have now begun a series of interest rate hikes. Look at it this way — imagine the economy has a terminal disease and the only thing keeping it alive is a highly addictive drug called “free money.” It’s a rather terrible life, barely worth living, but the economy still has a faint pulse as long as the drug is administered. Now, what would happen if the Fed suddenly cuts off the drug supply? Well, the economy will die in a very frantic and horrible way. Low interest rates and Federal Reserve loans represent the purest form of the free money drug, even more so than the bailouts and QE. And now, those interest rates are rising, and the drug is being taken away. These marginal rate hikes might not seem like much — .25 basis points here and .25 basis points there. And they are not much, unless you are a corporation borrowing billions of dollars at a time so that you can stave off your exposure to quadrillions in derivatives debt and so that you can purchase massive shares in your own stock to keep its value artificially elevated. Cycling this borrowed cash and paying the Fed back is rather easy for such corporations as long as the loans are essentially free. But when they have to start paying interest on that cash, even at a low rate, the costs add up at lightning speed. ANY interest rate hikes in this environment make borrowing from the Fed untenable for corporations seeking to prop up their stocks and the stock market at large. In my estimation, based on previous Fed measures such as the removal of QE from the system in 2014, it takes around six to eight months for the effects of policy shifts by the Fed to become visible on the main street economy and in equities. I believe we are about to see the effects of interest rate hikes on our system within the next couple of months. I put very little value in stock markets as an indicator of anything. In reality, stocks are a fraudulent circus based on perceived value and perceived demand rather than true value and demand. In most cases, stocks crash in the FINAL phase of an economic collapse, not in the beginning phase. If you decide to start preparing for a crisis after a stock market decline then you are probably too late. I am revisiting this topic here because I want to remind people that the full and tantamount blame for any economic crisis (and the final phase market crash) in the near future is placed on the Federal Reserve and international banks. All future shocks to the financial system were made possible because the establishment and the Fed have gutted our economy, stuffed it with the fluff of fiat stimulus and left it to lumber aimlessly since 2009. Now, because of the Fed’s efforts, stocks have been rising for quite some time with only a few moments of obstruction, due again, to their policy shifts. These efforts have conjured a 20,000 point Dow Jones, but nothing else positive for the economy. The one constant, though, has always been low interest rates. With interest rates increasing, I would point out that market behavior has changed. The meteoric rise has stalled. In the past few months stocks have barely budged 1 percent either up or down per week. Except for last week when something strange happened; markets suddenly dropped nearly 400 points in a single day. Why? Well, that is a subject up for debate, but the majority of mainstream news outlets will tell you that it was all Donald Trump’s fault. I have been warning since long before the election that Trump’s presidency would be the perfect vehicle for central banks and international financiers to divert blame for the economic crisis that would inevitably explode once the Fed moved firmly into interest rate hikes. Every indication since my initial prediction shows that this is the case. The media was building the foundation of the narrative from the moment Trump won the election. Bloomberg was quick to publish its rather hilariously skewed propaganda on the matter, asserting that Trump was lucky to inherit an economy in ascendance and recovery because of the fiscal ingenuity of Barack Obama. This is of course utter nonsense. Obama and the Fed have created a zombie economy rotting from the inside out, nothing more. But, as Bloomberg noted rightly, any downturn within the system will indeed be blamed on the Trump administration. Fortune Magazine, adding to the narrative, outlined the view that the initial stock rally surrounding Trump’s election win was merely setting the stage for a surprise market crash. I continue to go one further than the mainstream media and say that the Trump administration is a giant cement shoe designed (deliberately) to drag conservatives and conservative principles down into the abyss as we are blamed by association for the financial calamity that will occur on Trump’s watch. Last week’s sudden market bloodletting is important in this regard; 400 points down is hardly a flesh wound to a 20,000 point Dow, but the media’s reaction to it was very revealing on what the future has in store. Multiple news outlets responded by immediately connecting the drop to Trump and the absurdity surrounding the “Comey memo” — a memo which no one in the public has seen proof of. The claim is that this level of turmoil around Trump might lead to impeachment and that the threat of impeachment would kill the stock market bounce which the media also claims was driven by Trump’s promises of corporate tax cuts. It's a lie built on another lie. It is interesting to me that the mainstream media never said the market drop was caused by “Comey’s turmoil,” or by “The Washington Post and The New York Times’ turmoil.” No, they called it “Trump’s trumoil.” Last week’s stock dive was, in my opinion, the official launch of the Trump collapse narrative. The establishment was beta testing it for months, but now, the program has gone live. Every single stock decline from now on, as well as the ultimate economic crash, which will become visible to the public in short order, will be blamed on Donald Trump and conservatives by extension. As I said, he is the perfect scapegoat. I have been very critical of Donald Trump recently, and it is my view, according to the evidence and his swift retraction of nearly every promise he made to the voters during his campaign, that Trump is controlled opposition. But, I would never lay the blame for our fiscal decline at his feet. Trump does not have the power to create that kind of disaster; only the global banks have that power. I’ll say it again — the Federal Reserve is raising interest rates into a major financial downturn. This will be the trigger for the next phase of collapse, not any drama surrounding Donald Trump. Everything else, from Comey to North Korea, is distraction. The Fed has done this before. In fact, the Fed has a habit of raising interest rates at the onset of economic instability or right in the middle of a downturn, as it did in 1928-1929 triggering the Great Depression, and in 1931, adding fuel to the fire of financial catastrophe. These particular catalyzing policy actions are partly what Ben Bernanke was referring to on Nov. 8, 2002, in a speech given at "A Conference to Honor Milton Friedman, the Paul Snowden Russell Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus, On the Occasion of his 90th Birthday.” “In short, according to Friedman and Schwartz, because of institutional changes and misguided doctrines, the banking panics of the Great Contraction were much more severe and widespread than would have normally occurred during a downturn. Let me end my talk by abusing slightly my status as an official representative of the Federal Reserve. I would like to say to Milton and Anna: Regarding the Great Depression. You’re right, we did it. We’re very sorry. But thanks to you, we won’t do it again.” Ben Bernanke finished his astonishingly honest assessment with a lie. They are indeed doing it again… but this time they have made sure they have a president and an entire political ideal to blame it on.

The Hopeless World of '13 Reasons': Toxic Culture, Toxic Consequences

John Stonestreet, Gina Dalfonzo

Ten years ago, Jay Asher, a novelist specializing in Young Adult fiction, saw his novel about a high school student who commits suicide become what the New York Times called “a stealthy hit with surprising staying power.” The book eventually reached the top of the Times’ paperback best-seller list. And ten years later, that novel, “Thirteen Reasons Why,” was turned into a Netflix series and is a cultural phenomenon. If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve heard about the series. If you’re a parent in a place like Colorado Springs, where literally dozens of teenagers have committed suicide in recent years, you’re probably asking yourself whether the show will only make a bad situation worse. I’m not certain about the answer to that question. What I am certain about is that it most certainly won’t help. As my colleague Gina Dalfonzo wrote in her superb article at BreakPoint.org, while the creators thought that they were striking a blow against teen suicide, “the limited and flawed worldview they brought to it meant that they were deeply, dangerously wrong.” “13 Reasons Why” is set two weeks after a high school student named Hannah commits suicide. As Gina writes, “While her fellow students are still creating memorials and taking selfies in front of her locker, a bombshell drops on her friend Clay Jensen . . . A shoebox full of cassette recordings that Hannah created before her death is left with him—recordings addressed to 13 different people whom she says gave her reasons to kill herself.” Told in a combination of “flashbacks and present-day stories,” Hannah’s tale is set in a depiction of the high school experience that, in Gina’s words, “makes ‘Lord of the Flies’ look like ‘Gilligan’s Island.’ Drugs and alcohol flow freely, bullying and sexual assault are facts of life, an innocent photograph or a few whispers can wreck a reputation, and the person who’s your best friend today could turn on you tomorrow.” It’s an experience that leaves the viewer wondering “how anyone could survive.” The answer seems to be “you can’t, unless you’re a sociopath.” Where does this leave non-sociopaths? Certainly not with hope. As Gina points out, nothing presented onscreen gives any reason to believe that the “poisonous atmosphere” can, much less will, get better. Against this backdrop, Hannah’s carefully-orchestrated suicide-plus-audio-revenge seems like a viable option. In fact, and this is the key flaw of the series, she seems to wield a power in death that she never did in life. Except, of course, she doesn’t. In real life, the kind of sociopaths and jerks who tormented her in life aren’t going to be too put out by an audio-cassette from the beyond. It’s cutting off your nose to spite your face times infinity. The only person tormented is the one Hannah admired, Clay. And he’s left “haunted by the thought that Hannah died because he was ‘afraid to love her,’” an idea that owes more to the movies than to real-life. In any case, as Gina points out, neither Clay nor his classmates have any “concept of the kind of love that actually does save.” As Gina correctly concludes, “Troubled kids need and deserve better.” The National Association of School Psychologists agrees, having issued the following statement: “We do not recommend that vulnerable youth, especially those who have any degree of suicidal ideation, watch this series. Its powerful storytelling may lead impressionable viewers to romanticize the choices made by the characters and/or develop revenge fantasies.” Parents, we need to understand the impact that shows like this can have on our teens. And ultimately, we need to show our children what love really means—and where our hope in life truly lies.

Intelligence Leaks and Our Hypocritical Press

By Susan Stamper Brown , CP Guest Contributor

May 23, 2017 | 12:12 PM

A Harvard study published May 18 reveals what thoughtful Americans already knew: Extreme anti-Trump bias runs rampant in corporate media. The study found that CNN, CBS, and NBC produced more than 90 percent negative coverage during Trump's first 100 days, followed by the New York Times at 87 percent, and the Washington Post, 83 percent. Only Fox News offered close to balanced coverage with 52 percent negative coverage. That explains why the week was filled with over-the-top reporting about President Trump sharing sensitive intelligence with Russian officials visiting the White House. Reportedly, the disclosure included information that ISIS has developed a way to mask bombs inside laptop computers that can slip undetected through airport screening. The overdramatic hype about Trump doing what every president before him has done to share information with an ally to prevent a terror attack is a head-scratcher to those who recall the events of September 11, 2001 as a bad thing. We are aware of these details thanks to an agenda-driven media lacking discretion and leakers lacking a conscience. Who in their right mind would leak to the public information that burns intelligence sources? It's obvious there is no longer an ethical code by which most of the press abides. Those whispering secrets to the wind do so for a reason. Given the unprecedented volume of leaks and the Obama administration's lack of integrity, someone should re-sweep the White House for bugs. If it is "treasonous" for the president to share information to protect lives with an ally behind White House closed doors, then what shall we call it when a blabbermouth leaks this sensitive information to media organizations, which in turn proverbially broadcasts it with a bullhorn? This is not about the First Amendment; we're talking about discretion. It's also about intent. If anonymous sources are not authorized to speak publicly about intelligence matters but share them with the media, we should focus on prosecuting both the leaker and culpable media. t the very least, fed-up Americans should cancel subscriptions to the Washington Post and New York Times and stop watching news channels that care more about destroying the president than they do about protecting American lives. Sure, Trump's methods might be questionable, but what's not in dispute is his pure-hearted desire to keep Americans safe. The same media in full throttle to destroy Donald Trump performed journalistic backflips to protect the proverbial WikiLeaks of all presidential administrations, the Obama administration, which sprung so many leaks even Flex Seal wouldn't help. Leaks such as the time the Obama administration put a proverbial target on Navy SEAL Team 6 operators' backs when it leaked key operational details about the Osama bin Laden raid, blabbing about SEAL Team 6's participation. To this day, family members blame the Obama administration for what they believe was retaliation when the Taliban later downed a helicopter in Afghanistan which killed 30 soldiers, including 15 SEAL Team 6 members. In 2012, Obama leaked sensitive details about an "underwear-bombing" plot and the mission was forced to a standstill because of that leak, which former House Intelligence Committee chairman Mike Rogers suggested was utilized to generate positive press and boost Obama's reelection chances. The media also snoozed as the pantsuit queen they pre-crowned as president was caught transporting classified emails on an illegal server hidden in a bathroom. It was "nothing to see here" even when evidence unfolded about a complex scheme to conceal or destroy emails and burn or hide potentially damning daily calendar entries. Every administration has intelligence leaks. The current leaks are due to a convoluted effort intended to hurt President Trump, while Obama's leaks were about making him look good. What they have in common is the press involvement which ends up potentially endangering human life.

I'm Sick of News Anchors Telling Us Not to Rush to Judgment on Terror Attacks

1:00PM EDT 5/23/2017 Todd Starnes

The photos and the video and the sounds have become all too familiar. A flash of light—a massive explosion—horrified screams of the dying and wounded. his time in Manchester, England—at a concert filled with young teenagers and their parents. That was supposed to be a night of music and dancing and childhood frivolity—ended in carnage. Horrific, horrific injuries. Terrible," President Trump said. "Dozens of innocent people, beautiful young children savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity." an untold number of children and their parents were massacred by Islamic radicals—killed in the name of the religion of peace. In response—there have been candlelight vigils and calls for peace and understanding—but the Muslim jihadists do not want peace. They want death. he Islamic radicals will not stop until they have killed every last one of us—Christians, Jews, gay, straight. The time has come to eliminate this evil from the face of the planet. The time has come for nations around the world to stop appeasing the Islamists. We must drive out the terrorists and extremists from our midst, obliterate this evil ideology and protect and defend our citizens and people of the world," the president said. "All civilized nations must be united in this effort." And we must do our part in the United States. We must secure our borders, we must investigate those who come here from the birthplace of this radical ideology and we must do whatever is necessary to prevent American blood from being shed on American soil. et, there are still apologists for the radical Islamists—from Hollywood to the halls of Congress. They seem to think we can win over the hearts and minds of the jihadists with bouquets of flowers and gentle hugs. That sort of philosophy is not only foolish but it's downright dangerous. How many more times do we have to listen to breathless news anchors lecturing us about not rushing to judgment? The Presbyterians and the Lutherans are not the ones strapping on backpacks filled with nails and blowing themselves up. The Methodists and Baptists aren't beheading people. The Catholics are not flying jetliners into buildings. So spare us the politically correct garbage. How many more children must die at the hands of radical Muslims—slain in the name of the religion of peace? How many more citizens of the world must be sacrificed to satisfy the bloodlust of these brutal savages? How many more times, America? How many more times?

Manchester attack: Three more arrests in bomber investigation

Three more men have been arrested as police continue to investigate whether Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi acted alone. Abedi's 23-year-old brother has also been arrested. Abedi killed 22 and injured 64 when he blew himself up outside an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night. An off-duty policewoman is among the dead, the BBC understands. The UK terror threat level is now up to its highest level of "critical". This means more attacks may be imminent. Military personnel are being deployed to protect key sites. The Palace of Westminster has been closed to the public following police advice, and will not re-open until further notice, its website said. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: "[Monday's attack] was more sophisticated than some of the attacks we've seen before, and it seems likely - possible - that he wasn't doing this on his own." BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner said that the bomber is thought to have been a "mule", using a device built by someone else. An off-duty police officer - who has not yet been named - was also among those killed, the BBC understands. Her husband is believed to be critically ill and their two children were also injured. Of the 64 injured, 20 are in a critical condition, and some have lost limbs. Twelve of them are known to be children. Several people are still missing, including Eilidh MacLeod, 14, from Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Chloe Rutherford, 17, and Liam Curry, 19. Eilidh's friend, Laura MacIntyre, 15, who was also reported as missing, was later identified as one of the seriously injured in a Manchester hospital. The police believe they have now identified all those killed and informed their families. They will formally name the victims after post-mortem examinations, a process likely to take four or five days. A hotline has been set up for people concerned about loved ones - 0800 096 0095. Prime Minister Theresa May said soldiers are being placed at Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, embassies and the Palace of Westminster to support armed police in protecting the public. Military personnel may also be seen at other events over the coming weeks, such as concerts, Mrs May said, working under the command of police officers. She said she did not want people to feel "unduly alarmed" but said it was a "proportionate and sensible response". Mrs Rudd said 984 troops had been deployed in the first instance. Up to 3,800 are available. She said she "absolutely" expected the raising of the threat level to critical to be temporary, adding that the bomber had been known "up to a point" by the intelligence services. The highest threat level, which is decided by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre - a group of experts from the police, government departments and agencies - has only been reached twice before. The first time the threat level was raised to critical was in 2006 during a major operation to stop a plot to blow up transatlantic airliners with liquid bombs. The following year, security chiefs raised it once more as they hunted for the men who had tried to bomb a London nightclub and attacked Glasgow Airport. The Metropolitan Police says it has increased its presence across London. Meanwhile, Chelsea Football Club have cancelled their Premier League victory parade, due to take place in London on Sunday, so as not to divert police resources. In Northern Ireland, extra police officers have also been deployed at key sites and on transport networks. The next steps for police and MI5 UK 'irritated' by US leaks about bomber Who was the attacker? Salman Abedi is understood to be a 22-year-old born in Manchester to parents of Libyan descent, and a former University of Salford student. He attended Burnage Academy for Boys in Manchester between 2009-11. Hamid El-Sayed, who worked for the UN on tackling radicalisation and who now works at the University of Manchester, said Abedi had a "really bad relationship" with his family and his parents had tried but failed to keep him on the "right path". "Eventually he was doing very bad at his university, at his education, and he didn't complete, and they tried to take him back to Libya several times. He had difficulties adjusting to European lifestyle," he added. Abedi blew himself up in Manchester Arena's foyer shortly after 22:30 BST on Monday Fans were beginning to leave a concert by US singer Ariana Grande Witnesses at the arena described seeing metal nuts and bolts among the debris of Monday's bomb, and spoke about the fear and confusion that gripped concert-goers The arena bombing is the worst attack in the UK since the 7 July bombings in 2005, in which 52 people were killed by four suicide bombers So-called Islamic State has said - via IS channels on the messaging app Telegram - it was behind the attack, but this has not been verified A former classmate of Abedi's told the BBC that he was a "very jokey lad" but also "very short tempered" and would get angry at "the littlest thing". The man, who did not want to be identified, said Abedi was "away at random times throughout the year" but he did not know if he was abroad or playing truant because he hung around "the wrong crowd and was very, very gullible". "You could tell him anything and he would pretty much fall for it." He said that, before leaving the school in 2011, Abedi became "more and more religious" and that this might explain why he cut ties with former classmates. Apart from the three arrests in south Manchester on Wednesday, Abedi's older brother Ismael was arrested in Chorlton, south Manchester, on Tuesday in connection with the attack. On Wednesday afternoon, police raided a block of flats near Manchester Piccadilly station in the city centre, requiring them to briefly close the railway line. Met Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, who is the national counter-terrorism policing lead, said the investigation was "fast-moving and making good progress". "However, a critical line of inquiry is whether the dead terrorist was acting alone or part of a group," he said. "We still have critical lines of inquiry they're chasing down which has led to a level of uncertainty." Anyone with information about the attack can call the anti-terror hotline on 0800 789321.

The Trump budget is just telling the truth—and you can’t handle the truth!

Trump's budget begins to tell the hard truths to the American people. It's a "taxpayer first" plan, which is what any sustainable budget needs to be. More harsh truths are needed, but this is a good start.

Jake Novak | @jakejakeny 23 Hours Ago

America finally has something it's needed for decades: A budget that starts to tell the truth. And some people don't seem to be able to handle the truth. But they need to start. The truth is coming in the form of the White House budget that calls for major cuts to entitlement programs that are not sustainable, taxes that punish productivity and growth, and the fundamental understanding that politicians cannot be trusted to spend our money. That is, it at least begins to deliver the truth. Let's start with what it gets right in the reality department. The screaming headlines are all about that truth right now as every major news outlet has chosen to focus on the cuts the Trump budget makes to food stamps, Medicaid, student loans, and agencies like the EPA and the Department of Education. Do any of those articles or the angry members of Congress quoted in them include anything about how these spending programs are unsustainable as they are now anyway? Do they include any arguments about how the overstretched "safety net" of welfare programs provides aid to too many people who aren't actually poor, thus reducing the amount of funds available for the truly needy? Do they include any of the arguments that so many federal agencies like the EPA and the Education Department aren't truly needed in their current sizes? How about some information on how student loan guarantees from Washington are a major source of tuition inflation? Don't be ridiculous. "The unicorns aren't coming, and it's time for our elected leaders to stop pretending only the politically easy-to-cut programs should go." But the Trump budget does just that by simply calling for those cuts because "ridiculous" is really the best word to describe anyone who thinks continuing to promise the American people unicorns like the massive increases to the budgets of all the above-mentioned programs aren't going to crowd out spending for almost anything else. The truth can be harsh, but ultimately it's kinder than having our presidents and members of Congress continue to lie to us. The unicorns aren't coming, and it's time for our elected leaders to stop pretending only the politically easy-to-cut programs should go. It's time to stop throwing the word "poor" around like it's nothing. The fact is, way too much of the so-called "safety net" has been stretched to people who are not poor by most definitions and are thus siphoning vital funding away from those who are truly at the economic bottom. Specifically, this problem has manifested itself with the massive expansions in the number of people on food stamps and taking federal disability payments that has not subsided even with the economic recovery coming out of the Great Recession. This says nothing of the significant fraud in these systems that such a bloated enrollment makes inevitable. 10 percent of Medicaid payments were found to have been improper in 2016 alone, according to the Government Accountability Office. That's $36 billion, for those of you counting at home. The massive expansions of just about all of the programs the Trump plan seeks to cut have led to a growing number of unemployed people in America who are just getting by on various forms and levels of government assistance. This puts an undue level of new strain on the people who actually are working and paying payroll and other taxes to prop up the rest of the country. Yes, Mitt Romney was roundly pilloried when he complained that 47 percent of the people would never vote for him because they pay no federal taxes. But what part of what Romney said was factually wrong? What part of what he said wasn't indicative of an unsustainable political and economic reality? The Trump budget at least starts to tell us the truth about what benefits can survive even in the short-term future. And there's another harsh but crucial reality in the Trump budget — it knows where the money comes from. Taxpayers. Somehow, prioritizing the people who actually provide us the money to spend in Washington has been portrayed as selfish or mean. Now, let's get to what the Trump budget gets wrong. In short, it still isn't "harsh" enough. So far, we have no details of any reforms to the three biggest problems in our budget: Medicare, Social Security, and Defense. No real anti-deficit and pro-taxpayer moves can be made permanent until all three of those programs are reformed and essentially cut. It's not surprising the White House plan doesn't make the hard choices on that three-headed fiscal monster considering it would make the current political firestorm over his other cuts look like a small campfire. The political class and the news media remains convinced that the public will never accept even the slightest cuts or even any significant changes to those programs, but that's just plain wrong. 41 percent of Americans don't believe that Social Security will even exist when they retire, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Are we supposed to believe that they won't stand for changes to a program they don't expect to be around for much longer? Politicians simply don't want to bother to make those tough choices and they're hiding behind the voters to avoid them. But first things first. You have to start telling the truth somewhere, and the Trump budget does the most truth telling since at least the cut-heavy Reagan budget in 1981 that helped launch a major economic expansion. Our debt is about $20 trillion, and the number of unfunded liabilities coming due in the future have some experts pegging our real debt at more like $200 trillion. There's not enough taxpayer money in the universe to cover those costs. With these harsh truths in mind, we have to remember that a budget that doesn't make the harsh cuts Trump's does simply isn't realistic. Oh, and there's no such thing as unicorns either.

The All Seeing Eye of Destruction: Google Creates ‘Image-Recognition AI’ For Your Smartphone

By Nate Brown - 05/18/2017

In 2016, Alphabet Inc. Patented ‘Google Lens,’ a computerized contact lens that gets embedded into the eye which can record and take pictures. In 2017, Alphabet Inc. brings about the first phase of ‘Google Lens’ in the form of an ‘image-recognition AI’ for your smartphone. The conglomerate corporation Alphabet the parent company to Google and YouTube has taken the first steps to bring about full-blown integrated image-recognition technology that places artificial intelligence in the hands of the user. Previously such technology has been available but not to this degree. Image-Recognition technology uses what is called computer vision, think of a robot that can see you, a store front, a price tag, your personal data, and recognize what is in-front of the camera. Google is selling the technology as; “With Google Lens, your smartphone camera won’t just see what you see, but will also understand what you see to help you take action.” In other words, Google is using its users to teach their computer scripts to recognize and remember what “they see.” Such can be very dangerous technology, especially when companies like Nvidia are using similar technology to relay the captured information to government officials. Embedded into the smartphone as an app, is not where this technology stops, rather Google is most likely going to take this a step further, and shortly Google will be actively placing this technology into the eyes of their users – literally. In May 2016 Google patented what is also called ‘Google Lens, ’ and it is a computerized contact lens that is embedded into the eye and cannot just be taken off. The idea is being sold to the public as ‘for medical purposes,’ as we similarly see with other technology that has come from the conglomerate technology giant. Google is not the only tech giant aiming to bridge the biological and technological gap, other companies such as Samsung and Sony are building a cyborg contact lens which can record, track, and transmit everything seen with the eyeball as well. Artificial intelligence will be used to govern the lives of the citizenry, all while the public is sold on the idea that the technology produced is a necessity when in reality mankind is building its own prison cells.

ALERT: Officials warn of more collapses at US nuclear site — “High spikes” in radiation levels recorded — Expert: Plutonium could go airborne — Major concern over radioactive releases — Gov’t delays revealing data to public (VIDEOS)

Published: May 18th, 2017 at 6:56 am ET By ENENews

KING 5 transcript, May 14, 2017 (emphasis added): Hanford official: Tunnel could collapse again — Less than a week after a tunnel collapse at Hanford’s PUREX site, Senator Cantwell visited the nuclear site Saturday, concerned about the recent collapse and the possibility of more. “There is still a potential that we could have an additional collapse of that tunnel,” said Doug Shoop, manager at the Department of Energy Richland Operations Office… “What we will be doing, weather permitting, will be putting a very large cover over the top of that tunnel number one,” said Shoop. That cover meant to keep radioactive particles in the dirt from flying into the air in the event of another collapse. KOMO, May 13, 2017: DOE spokesman Doug Shoop said they’re still at risk of another failure as the 360-foot long concrete and wood structure has not been shored up. To mitigate the risk of a radioactive release in the event of a second collapse, workers will place a heavy, industrial tarp over the entire length of the tunnel… KEPR, May 13, 2017: IMMEDIATE CONCERNS… “Now there is still the potential that we could have an additional collapse,” said Doug Shoop, site manager for the Department of Energy Richland Operations… Nuclear Waste Program Manager Alex Smith said the Department of Ecology[ said the] most immediate concern, of course, is the potential the wooden tunnel could collapse again… If a larger part of the tunnel were to collapse, she said they worry about a radiological release… With high winds in the area, Smith said radioactive dust can travel easily, that’s why they used extra precaution when dealing with the emergency on Tuesday. Shoop [said] they want to avoid airborne release of radioactive dust because the materials are difficult to contain and can be harmful to humans… “But what we do know for sure is that the material is very radioactive,” he said… Shoop said all the monitoring data that the DOE, contractors and the Department of Health conducted on the site, following the collapse, will be available to the public within the next week… Alex Smith, Washington Dept. of Ecology: “The integrity of the structure is compromised… Radioactive dirt and dust could be released… it is a high concern.” KNDO transcript, May 14, 2017: “There are still major concerns circling the tunnel collapse.” KING 5 transcript, May 10, 2017: “A danger still exists after that tunnel collapsed yesterday. It was really a statewide emergency… If the wind were to pick-up and the hole is still not filled in, that’s when the wind could come down, stir things up, and spread radioactive particles into the air… The bad news is the wind is about to pick up. We’ve got this low pressure system out in the Pacific… Once it traverses east of the Cascades we’re going to see that wind… You’re going to see wind speeds surpassing the 30 mph mark.” Nuclear Hotseat, May 10, 2017: (at 11:15 in) Robert Alvarez, former senior policy adviser at US Dept. of Energy: “It’s possible that radiation might have escaped into the open environment because of this collapse… This stuff could re-suspend — it probably has plutonium in it.” — (at 16:30 in) Julie Wert, Radiation Watch: “I pulled the [EPA RadNet data] for Hanford and it’s showing high spikes… That indicates that there’s some releases going on.” Tri-City Herald, May 13, 2017: Hanford radiological control technicians who questioned some unusual radiation readings are being credited with discovering the breach… When some readings were much higher than expected, they began checking for the cause…

Days of Noah and The Demonic Wars – The Battle For The Minds of The World

By Ray Gano - May 16, 2017

The demonic wars are taking place right now and like it or not, the enemy is winning. How is he doing that? By winning the minds of the world. Christianity is under attack in a big way. “The Italian religious research group CENSUR (The Center for Studies on New Religions) has named Christians the most persecuted religious group in the world after calculating that one person of a Christian faith was murdered every six minutes in 2016.” (1) We have been witnessing a war on Christianity for the last 20+ years and body count is growing exponentially. Most of the deaths taking place are against Christians in the Middle East and in Northern Africa where Islam is prevalent and in most cases ruling those areas and countries. Like it or not, what is happening here in America is nothing compared to those brothers and sisters who are dying for the faith in those countries. But what is happening here in America is a literal battle for the minds of the world to demean, negate, demoralize and make Christianity totally ill relevant. What we are seeing take place in America is an increase in hostility and incredible intolerance towards Christians, our values, our beliefs, our way of life, our God and His Son Jesus Christ. Basically, if you are a Christian, people do not want to know or deal with it. The world says, “You keep your religious intolerance in the closet where it belongs and out of the public’s eye.” Folks, this is a tactic that is totally satanically driven. The enemy believes that the more it can take Christianity out of the public’s eye and make it ill relevant, the better their positions become at being the dominate ideal. This is the same tactic that Hitler used against the Jews in Nazi Germany, and like it or not, Hitler was then allowed to kill over 11 million people, 6 million of them were Jews. I am sighting this because we are beginning to see a rise of hatred against Christians and those of us on the right along with anyone who holds to our conservative ideas are being targeted. “a Huffington Post article that showed “how to really turn up the heat on elected officials” went viral. The author, Michaelangelo Signorile, called on protesters to harass Republicans at dinner, when they’re out shopping and even at home. Societal norms for the basic levels of decency one should afford political opponents, Signorile argued, no longer apply to liberals. “It’s time to move beyond polite protests within specified boundaries. It’s time to escalate the expression of our outrage and our anger in a massive way.” (2) We are seeing an attack on Christian businesses where atheist or LGBT groups are specifically targeting small business for the sole reason to put them out of business via a law suit. The basic mentality is that “If you don’t want to serve the public, don’t open a business saying you will serve the public.” We are witnessing a militaristic secularization of the Untied States and just because President Trump is in office is not stopping these people who are hell bent on destroying the Christian way of life. Again, at the very core of this militaristic secularization is the demonic and their control of the many people who are involved in this idea that Christianity needs to be squashed like a bug for the good of society. And that is where they are winning the minds of the world. The world is starting to agree with these demonic ideas and backing theses monstrous thugs who see that it is their right to what ever they want to us all in the name of their very skewed ideas. What we need to realize is that we are fighting with demons both in the spiritual and in the physical. The physical are demons who are possessing people and controlling them to do as much damage and harm as possible. These are free will humans who are working for the enemy and gladly doing so. This is why it is important that we recognize this and understand how to spot those who are in league with demons. This week I have produced a video which talks about how you can recognize someone who is demon possessed. You can watch this video here — https://youtu.be/atdFBGNm4OE  Folks, this battle is real and this is why we need to be prepared mentally physically and spiritually. Like it or not, many of us Christians are not ready for the fight and that is where the enemy has the better of us. We need to get organized and we need to be preparing so that no matter what happens, we are able to still stand in the gap and continue to fight the good fight. In later articles, I will be talking about this more. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Decades after catastrophic 1980 eruption, Mount St. Helens is 'recharging'

By Blair Shiff May 18, 2017, 5:06 AM ET

Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, after two months of increasing volcanic activity. Since its most recent eruption in 2008, there has been a swarm of earthquakes, which are thought to be a result of the magmatic system's "recharging," according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. Similar seismic swarms were detected during recharging periods before a small eruption in 2004 and through a period of volcanic activity that ended in 2008. In March through May of this year, swarms of deep earthquakes, not even felt on the surface, have been detected. Seismic swarms do not directly indicate that an eruption is imminent, because volcanic forecasting is difficult, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The 1980 eruption is widely considered the most disastrous volcanic eruption in U.S. history. It killed 57 people and destroyed hundreds of homes, 57 bridges and some 200 miles of roads, in addition to leveling tens of thousands of acres of forest. The eruption sent an ash cloud more than 12 miles into the atmosphere in just 10 minutes. Fine ash reached the Northeast two days later and circled the earth within 15 days, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The volcano had been dormant for more than 100 years until seismic activity started to increase in March 1980. A series of earthquakes caused cracks in the snow and ice at the top of the mountain. On March 27, 1980, ash began to spray from the mountain's peak. What happened next caught many scientists by surprise. At 8:32 a.m. on the day of the big eruption, a 5.1 magnitude earthquake shook the area, and the mountain's summit and much of its northern flank collapsed, sending a huge explosion out from the north side instead of a typical eruption from the top. Some 3.2 billion tons of ash spewed into the surrounding area, according to the United States Geological Survey. Streets and buildings were covered, and the eruption caused an estimated $1 billion in damage. Over the nearly four decades since the cataclysmic eruption, the USGS has noticed signs of recovery near Mount St. Helens. These signs of regrowth are positive, but there are also signs of increased seismic activity under the mountain. "Mount St. Helens is at normal background levels of activity," Liz Westby, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey–Cascades Volcano Observatory, told ABC News. "But a bit out of the ordinary are several small magnitude earthquake swarms in March to May 2016, November 2016 and April 16 to May 5, 2017. During the April 16 to May 5, 2017, swarm, we detected well over 100 earthquakes, all below a magnitude 1.3." Those quakes originated between sea level and 3 miles below sea level and were too small for people to feel on the surface, even if they had been directly above them, she said. Even though there has been a swarm of earthquakes, Westby said, that doesn't necessarily mean that an eruption of Mount St. Helens is coming soon. Volcanic forecasts can be tricky. "There are several reasons why it is very unlikely that this swarm is a precursor to imminent eruptive activity at Mount St. Helens. It is similar to ones in the past that did not lead to surface activity. It consists of very small earthquakes occurring at relatively low rates. There are no other geophysical indicators (like surface deformation, tilting, increased volcanic gas emissions) of unrest," she told ABC News. Westby said these swarms are extremely interesting and helpful to scientists, since each geophysical signal gives them a better understanding of how a volcano functions. "This is why we maintain a close watch over these giants, so we can detect the earliest signs of reawakening," she said. The agency sends out weekly updates on seismic activity around the volcano. Mount St. Helens' last eruption in 2008 was insignificant compared with the devastating eruption in 1980.

U.S. Household Debts Hit Record High in First Quarter--Update

By Ben Leubsdorf Published May 17, 2017

The total debt held by American households reached a record high in early 2017, exceeding its 2008 peak after years of retrenchment in the face of financial crisis, recession and modest economic growth. The milestone, announced Wednesday by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, was a long time coming. Americans reduced their debts during and after the 2007-09 recession to an unusual extent: a 12% decline from the peak in the third quarter of 2008 to the trough in the second quarter of 2013. New York Fed researchers, looking at data back to the end of World War II, described the drop as "an aberration from what had been a 63-year upward trend reflecting the depth, duration and aftermath of the Great Recession." In the first quarter, total debt was up 14.1% from that low point as steady job gains, falling unemployment and continued economic growth boosted households' income and willingness to borrow. The New York Fed report said total household debt rose by $149 billion in the first three months of 2017 compared with the prior quarter, or 1.2%, to a total of $12.725 trillion. "Almost nine years later, household debt has finally exceeded its 2008 peak, but the debt and its borrowers look quite different today," New York Fed economist Donghoon Lee said. He added, "This record debt level is neither a reason to celebrate nor a cause for alarm." The pace of new lending slowed from the strong fourth quarter. Mortgage balances rose 1.7% last quarter from the final three months of 2016, while home-equity lines of credit were down 3.6% in the first quarter. Automotive loans rose 0.9% and student loans climbed 2.6%. Credit-card debt fell 1.9%, and other types of debt were down 2.7% from the fourth quarter. The data weren't adjusted for inflation, and household debt remains below past levels in relation to the size of the overall U.S. economy. In the first quarter, total debt was 66.9% of nominal gross domestic product versus 85.4% of GDP in the third quarter of 2008. Balance sheets look different now, with less housing-related debt and more student and auto loans. As of the first quarter, 67.8% of total household debt was in the form of mortgages; in the third quarter of 2008, mortgages were 73.3% of total debt. Student loans rose from 4.8% to 10.6% of total indebtedness, and auto loans went from 6.4% to 9.2%. Mortgage lending to subprime borrowers has dwindled since the housing crisis in favor of loans to consumers considered more likely to repay. In the first quarter, borrowers with credit scores under 620 accounted for 3.6% of mortgage originations, compared with 15.2% a decade earlier. Borrowers with credit scores of 760 or higher were 60.9% of originations last quarter, versus 23.9% in the first quarter of 2007. Auto loans have remained relatively available to subprime borrowers, helping fuel the record vehicle sales of recent years as interest rates have been low. Some 19.6% of auto-loan originations last quarter went to borrowers with credit scores below 620, down from 29.6% a decade earlier. The median credit score for auto-loan originations in the first quarter was 706, compared with 764 for mortgage originations. Some 4.8% of outstanding debt was delinquent at the end of the first quarter, little changed from late 2016, with 3.4% at least 90 days late, known as seriously delinquent. Seriously delinquent rates have climbed recently for credit-card debt, 7.5% in the first quarter, and auto loans, 3.8% last quarter, and remained high -- 11% last quarter -- for student loans, according to Wednesday's report. Write to Ben Leubsdorf at ben.leubsdorf@wsj.com  The total debt held by American households reached a record high in early 2017, exceeding its 2008 peak after years of retrenchment in the face of financial crisis, recession and modest economic growth. Much has changed over the past eight and a half years. The economy is larger, lending standards are tighter and less debt is delinquent. Mortgages remain the largest form of household borrowing but have become a smaller share of total debt as consumers take on more automotive and student loans. "The debt and its borrowers look quite different today," New York Fed economist Donghoon Lee said. He added: "This record debt level is neither a reason to celebrate nor a cause for alarm."

Student loans rose from about 5% to around 11% of total indebtedness, and auto loans went from roughly 6% to about 9%. Mortgage lending to subprime borrowers has dwindled since the housing crisis in favor of loans to consumers considered more likely to repay. In the first quarter, borrowers with credit scores under 620 accounted for less than 4% of mortgage originations, compared with more than 15% a decade earlier. Borrowers with credit scores of 760 or higher had about 61% of originations last quarter, versus about 24% in the first quarter of 2007. Auto loans have remained relatively available to subprime borrowers, helping fuel the record vehicle sales of recent years as interest rates have been low. About a fifth of auto-loan originations last quarter went to borrowers with credit scores below 620, down from roughly 30% a decade earlier. Still, standards have tightened. The median credit score for auto-loan originations in the first quarter was 706, compared with 764 for mortgage originations. In the first quarter of 2007, the median scores were 678 for auto loans and 712 for mortgages. Less than 5% of outstanding debt was delinquent at the end of the first quarter, little changed from late 2016, with 3.4% at least 90 days late, known as seriously delinquent. The overall seriously delinquent rate remains well below levels seen in the recession's immediate aftermath, though delinquencies have climbed recently for credit-card debt and auto loans and remain high for student loans, according to Wednesday's report.

Will There be a Civil War If Trump Is Impeached?

By Dave Hodges

Never before have we seen such a collection of mainstream media outlets to conspire to take a sitting President out of office. The Washington Post (a proven front for the CIA), ABC News, CNN (another CIA controlled operation) and the New York Times have presented a uniform front of falsfied evidence against Donald Trump with absolutedly no concrete evidence that Trump has violated the law and should be impeached and criminally convicted and sentenced. If Trump is impeached will there be a civil war. Allegations and Evidence Against Trump Trump is accused of conspiring with the Russians to fix the results of the election. He is also accused of leaking intelligence information to the Russians. Further, it is alleged that Trump obstructed justice. The evidence for these crimes is absolutely nonexistent. There has not been one shred of evidence to support any of these allegations. The closest that the Deep State has come to producing evidence is the word of one man immediately after being fired by Trump and I am referring to James Comey. Comey allegedly wrote down conent related to conversations he had with Trump in which Trump “obstructed justice” by telling Comey to stop investigating Flynn. If this were true, Comey would have been required to report this to the Department of Justice, IMMEDIATELY! Comey, by not reporting the allegation, either obstructed justice or is lying. There is no other evidence to support these allegations. As I said in yesterday’s article, the clear intent is to keep Trump and Putin divided because of their expressed common desire to eliminate child-sex-trafficking from the landscape of government and Deep State politics. Rules for Thee but Not for Me While the people of this country live under the mantra of repeating a big enough lie, often enough, the people will come to believe it, the MSM outlets have totally ignored the heinous and serial criminality of Hillary Clinton: Illegally brokered arms deals with 16 nations with terrorist ties and laundered the gifts into the Clinton Foundation through HSBC Bank while James Comey was on the bank’s board of directors. Illegally sold 25% of the nation’s uranium to Russia while husband Bill received overpriced speaking engagements in Russia. This is called treason. By the way, the New York Times first reported these allegations involving Uranium One as the front company. Illegally laundered her ill-gotten Clinton Foundation gains into her presidential campaign. The Clinton Foundation stole $2 billion dollars in Hatian relief money. Stored national security emails on her private server and attempted to cover it up. There’s your obstruction of justice violation along with Comey’s facilitation of this crime. There are a host of other serious crimes that have gone unpunished. But justice is selective in America, today, because there is an agenda to destroy the American dream. Why? Because in the New World Order, under the direction of the banksters, everyone is in debt so that they can be controlled. Impeachment and the Total Loss of Civil Liberties Because we are playing in a game with no rules, it is important to know that Trump will be impeached solely based on the strength of fabricated evidence and in most cases, no evidence at all. In today’s Deep State America, perception is reality. Opinion rules over fact, Intimidation rules over the free expression of ideas. We have officially entered the Nazi Germany period of the Enabling Act. Soon, your guns will be confiscated. The 1st Amendment and the Internet will soon become strangers. George Soros controls the modern day Brown Shirts. The fate that befell Seth Rich will become standard and with a completely controlled media, there will be nobody to identify and speak against the abuses of the ruling party. Donald Trump is the stop gap for this movement. With his removal, there is a clear road for the total subjugation of America. Will There Be a Revolution In America? The answer to the question is no, an emphatic no. Donald Trump’s campaign should have been enough to wake Americans up. There was no more of a salient issue as the Free Trade Agreements. These agreements remove American sovereignty. They destroy the employment market at home. They have done move to lower the standard of living that any other single factor. However, most Americans don’t know a free trade agreement from a free agent in football. America has become one of the most dumbed down countries in the world. A full two-thirds of Americans cannot find N. Korea on a map. We are buried in our entertainments. We are distracted to dumbness. Many Americans make the mentally retarded look informed by comparison. In short, we are being led to the slaughter with smiles on our faces! It is game over except for one possible factor. Can’t Anything Be Done? Won’t the people get tired of the abuse and when Trump is impeached and thrown out of office, won’t the people revolt? The short answer is no. The event will be theater for 3/4ths of the country, and nothing more. There is, however, one issue that could awaken a sleeping giant. It is not the loss of guns, Internet, First Amendment and the loss of jobs and ultimately the foreiture of our country’s sovereignty. The only thing that even the most ignorant will hold dear is the overall welfare of their children. America may not know what Internet freedom means, but they understand what sexual abuse of a child is all about. On this point, most species will defend their offspring to the death. This fact, alone, tells us where we in the Independent Media should focus our efforts. Quite simply, Pedogate and the Deep State connection to it must be hammered home day after day. Trump must be portrayed by us as a defender of Children. If he won’t say it, we need to say it for him. And what if we are successful in rousing our citizens to action based on the crimes committed against children? We will have a civil war and many will die. What will happen if we do nothing and the globalist agenda goes forward. Soon, 90% of you will not be around to see how this is going to end. America, you have a choice. You can distract yourself until death. Or you can risk death by defending what is precious. And to my colleagues in the Independent Media, I feel I have identified the anti-sleeping pill that America has taken and it is to fully expose child-sex trafficking. Tick, tick, tick, time is very short.

Dems: “Give us Trump’s head or we’ll bury you and your county!”

By Sher Zieve —— Bio and Archives May 18, 2017

If they weren’t so belligerent, nasty, petulant and dangerous to our country and humanity, one might—almost—be slightly inclined to have pity on the, now, increasingly desperate Democrats. Unfortunately, however, these Marxist Democrats exhibit all of these negative connotations…with increasing and even great regularity. The leftist US media have been working with—if not providing the instructions as to how to accomplish their goals—the Marxist Democrats and RINOs for well over a decade in order to take over the country for themselves and the globalist elites. Perverse and craven (these parasitic types have never had a courageous bone in their bodies), the media—along with the US indoctrination system formerly known as the “public school” system—in all of their many guises have diligently worked to transform the thinking of Americans. Now, that transformation begins as soon as toddlers can sit up to watch television. Ruling over us all from-cradle-to-grave is all the would-be demi-human globalist masters are demanding. And, like Islamic ISIS (not to be confused with the Roman goddess who was never known to behead humans), the US Islamo-Marxist Democrats are becoming more deranged and depraved with each passing day. Goals of the Islamo-Marxist Revolution in America The goals of those who wish us to see them as “downtrodden,” “put upon” and “demeaned” because members of the US electorate were “stupid” in that they voted for now President Donald J. Trump are demanding that same president of the United States be removed (after just shy of four months in office) because they hate him. If we-the-people refuse to comply, these same unprincipled politicos have told us they will forge ahead with their unceasing shouts and Dem Congress members (and a few RINOs…notably John McCain) will continue their refusals to engage in their jobs and will, instead, buck up their undereducated and paid ‘troops’ to continue their rioting, burning and pillaging against anyone who opposes their dark vision for mankind’s future. They will continue to harass us all until we remove President Trump from office. Make no mistake. Those who oppose individual freedom being replaced with the collective enslavement of group-think and actions are not pro-humanity. Those who want to control the human population via abortion and, likely, soon the regulation of the number of children allowed per family are not pro-human. Those who organize, spawn, foment and encourage violent attacks against any and all of their fellow citizens who disagree with their menacing and deviant ways are definitely not pro-humanity. The attacks against Constitutionalists are increasing almost exponentially each day. Conservative Constitutionalist (invited) speakers are being threatened by the Left with assaults at Universities nationwide and the Universities (recently and most notably University of California Berkeley) are now telling the anti-Communist speakers that they will have no police protection if they come. The leaders of these “bastions of higher learning” are telling the campus police forces to stand down if conservatives are attacked! Conservative Read stated that at UCB “according to YAF attorney prosecuting the case, the administrators instructed the police not to interfere in any anti-Coulter demonstrations no matter how violent, unless they endangered life. Of course this is nonsense because it’s pretty much impossible to know if life is endangered until someone is seriously hurt or killed. Obviously to be effective the police need to be prepared for the worst case scenario. “To give the police official cover for refusing to serve or protect as is their solemn duty, Chancellor Dirks issued a baldly disingenuous statement that gives the “heckler’s veto” the university’s stamp of approval.” President Trump is under one assault after another. Thus far, all of the news stories purporting that his ‘misdeeds’ rise to the level of impeachment have been discredited and proved to be malicious fake news mockup out of whole cloth by a progressively more virulent leftist attack-media. Note: Thus far, there have been no misdeeds proved to even successfully identify .We’re beginning to look more and more like Peronist Argentina. The supposed “Russian-connection” between President Trump and Putin has been investigated since—at least—July 2016…long before Trump was elected. Nothing has, to date, been found. The Democrats are throwing every attempt to create a Trump scandal they can find, in order to keep the president from doing his job for we-the-people. The Left’s latest attempt is the assertion by the Left’s ever-faithful fake-news source The New York Times that purports President Trump obstructed justice by telling Comey to stop the investigation of Michael Flynn. The NYT says there is a memo on it. Said memo has yet to be produced. Hmmm. Former FBI Director Comey knows full well that under 18 U.S. Code § 4 - Misprision of felony he was required to immediately report any suspected obstruction of justice. He did not. In fact, up until a day or so ago, he never even mentioned it. And, on 3 May 2017 Comey appeared before a Senate committee and said in answer to a committee member’s question that the Trump Administration “doesn’t obstruct investigations.” There is no “there…there” in any of these patently fabricated-by-the-Left fake stories against President Trump. Folks, all of this treacherous—and increasingly perilous for us all—fake news mischief is meant to bring down the US Republic so that the non-elected Marxist Dems can rule over us…again. Now, we even have a special counsel appointed. Bad move. This could go on forever and end any hope of Trump continuing to bring about his policies and programs, in order to actually make America great again. That’s the Democrat plan. The Left has even finally and negatively impacted the stock market with all of its lies and subterfuge. This must stop. We have entered a time period that could quite possibly end our country. And, the danger to us is coming from within the Democrat Party aided and abetted by the testosterone-free RINOs. It’s time to expunge the Left’s attempts to end our country. Elect no more Democrats….no more RINOs. We must take our country back, stand behind our not-guilty-of-anything-except-winning-the-presidency President Trump and vote out all Democrats possible. Their malicious stranglehold on us all must be broken. “Submit yourselves therefore to God.

RED ALERT: Attempted political coup now taking place in D.C. with effort to impeach Trump for fabricated “obstruction of justice”

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) This is a high priority alert. The Washington Post, now exposed as a CIA propaganda front, and the New York Times (a fiction-pimping anti-American rag owned by a Mexican national) have tag-teamed their way to their desired finish line: The impeachment and indictment of President Donald J. Trump. This has been accomplished through the publishing of a seemingly endless stream of utterly fabricated fake news stories, nearly all of which are based on “anonymous sources” that are probably little more than schizophrenic voices in the heads of the reporters writing the “news” in the first place. The aim has been to accuse President Trump of every imaginable crime, from “leaking intel to the Russians” to “obstruction of justice.” Keep in mind that these same discredited media outlets gave Obama a pass when he laundered $1.7 billion in cash and delivered it to Iran on a military cargo plane. They are the same fake news media that looked the other way when Bill Clinton met with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in a private meeting to pressure Lynch to back off any potential criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s long list of crimes. They are the same anti-American media that said nothing when Hillary Clinton cheated during the presidential debates by receiving the debate questions in advance from CNN. (She also pre-sold her anticipated presidency by collecting tens of millions of dollars in “donations” and “speaking fees” from foreign interests.) They are the same media that stood silent when former President Obama weaponized the IRS to suppress the speech of conservative non-profits. Similarly, nobody in the media seems to be alarmed at all that Obama abused the state surveillance apparatus to spy on his political opponents such as Rand Paul. These are all serious crimes, serious abuses of power and treasonous acts carried out by Obama, a Democrat. Yet the left-wing media remains silent on every one of them. What’s obvious from all this is that, according to the left-wing media, Democrats can do no wrong and all their crimes are whitewashed by default (even the obvious murder of Seth Rich). Yet Republicans are instantly guilty of the worst crimes imaginable, even when they’ve done nothing wrong at all. REAL crimes committed by Democrats are deliberately overlooked, in other words, while FAKE accusations against Republicans are hyped up until they’re made to look legitimate and damning, to the point where Democrats are all madly hyperventilating and claiming to be “triggered” by nearly everything. It is against this background of wild disinformation, media lies and conspiratorial plotting that President Trump is now facing the most serious challenge of his administration: An aggressive attempt to remove him from office through impeachment and indictment over entirely fabricated, baseless accusations that are lacking any real facts. Congressman Al Green just called for Trump’s impeachment on the House floor Right on cue, Texas congressman Al Green (a Democrat from Houston, no surprise) just called for Donald Trump’s impeachment. As Zero Hedge reports: For now it is unclear what Congressman Al Green’s reasoning is… apart from anonymously-sourced evidence-free reports from a clearly biased mainstream media perpetuating a narrative designed to ‘resist’. Apparently the argument is that Trump “obstructed justice”, although we hope Mr. Green has some evidence to back up his accusations. Indeed, nearly every media accusation against Trump has been based on nothing but innuendo, misleading headlines, fake “anonymous sources” (a Washington Post favorite) or outright misrepresentations of hard facts. The New York Times and Washington Post have deliberately published fake news, then whipped it all into a “media circle jerk” frenzy where the same false stories are repeated across the ‘net, all hyped up by Facebook’s selective oppression of liberty-oriented news so that left-wing media lies are more easily shared. Google then tweaks its search engine algorithms to censor truth media while giving extra rankings to the lies of the left-wing media, making sure that all searches on political topics return mainstream media propaganda results rather than independent media stories that are actually far more truthful. The fix is in, in other words, and it’s a coordinated network involving the media, tech giants, deep state intelligence organizations and of course late night television which drives all the false narratives into the brains of young, gullible hipsters. The goal of all this is the overthrow of the Republic and the final crushing of all voices of liberty As should be obvious by now, the Democrats seek to run a totalitarian, fascist police state that they control. It will be called a “tolerant” society, of course, where anyone who disagrees with any left-wing narrative is censored off the ‘net, labeled a threat to humanity and imprisoned or executed. The Boston Herald is already calling for mass executions of people who disagree with California’s SB 277 vaccine mandate which allows the state government to force mass injections of toxic substances into human babies. Netflix has now memory-holed videos that teach the science of genetics, making sure that nobody remembers how gender is determined by XX or XY chromosomes, not a “momentary feeling” of a gender-confused individual. Google eliminated the entire NaturalNews.com website from its index for a six-day period, attempting to memory hole 140,000+ independent news articles, and Facebook is now blocking nearly all sharing of independent media in order to make sure that only the fake news narratives of the delusional Left can be shared on its twisted social media platform (which serves as little more than a front for the NSA to collect intelligence on the citizenry). The real goal in all this — which is also being pursued by the evil globalist Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com and owner of the fake news Washington Post — is the overthrow of the Republic. This will be followed, of course, by a massive false flag school shooting, a call for the complete disarmament of the U.S. citizenry, and a final rollout of the totalitarian police state run by Leftists. All liberty-oriented websites will be de-indexed from Google, banned from Facebook sharing, blocked by email ISPs and possibly even shut down at the domain level through government seizures of domain names. All voices of liberty will be silenced, and only obedient conformity will be tolerated in the name of “tolerance.” We are right now on the very precipice of this unfolding before our very eyes in the days ahead. An effort is under way to impeach President Trump or declare him mentally unfit. Rumors are swirling that his own cabinet is prepared to say he suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia and is therefore “unfit for command” and must be replaced. An actual political coup is forming up at this very moment, and the anti-American forces within the media and the bureaucracy are planning to move swiftly to out-pace public awareness or dissent against the coup that’s taking place. Why a coup against Trump will likely set off a civil war and a catastrophic market collapse I plan to discuss this is more detail in a subsequent article, but according to my analysis, a coup against President Trump is likely to be the catalyst for the outbreak of civil war as well as a catastrophic market crash. In that civil war, I predict a strong possibility that the headquarters of Google, Facebook, Twitter and other tech gatekeepers will be overrun by pro-America forces in order to halt their collusion with fascist left-wing traitors who are trying to overthrow the Republic. We should expect to see similar strategic occupation efforts targeting the Washington Post and the New York Times, which is where all the anti-American propaganda originates, run by nefarious globalists who despise liberty and Trump. I would not be surprised at all to see all the major media centers of America seized and forced to stop running their anti-American, anti-liberty, fascist propaganda that has deliberately sought to overthrow the duly elected President of these United States. On the streets, the mass protests will of course spill out across every U.S. city, where brainwashed, delusional left-wing activists will carry out mass violence against innocent white people, looting white neighborhoods and torching white-owned businesses. This mass violence will be uncontrolled and unstoppable by local police, who will be vastly outnumbered. At some point, watch for local citizens who own firearms to start shooting back in their own defense, and from there it all escalates into open warfare on the streets of America. (Hint: Gun owners who can accurately shoot rifles will out-range the left-wing criminals who only know how to use handguns.) If you are not yet prepared for the outbreak of mass violence across America, your time is running short. You will obviously need a means of self-defense, and you will need plenty of organic survival food, a non-electric water filter, emergency first aid items and emergency communications gear. If you don’t yet own a firearm for your protection, find recommended choices for self-defense at Guns.news and Gear.news. You will need plenty of hollow point ammo, which you can find at MidwayUSA.com or AmmoToGo.com. My personal recommendation is to acquire a Glock 19 as your starting pistol, and get a POF-USA.com rifle if it’s legal to own one in your area. (If it’s not legal to own a rifle, you are living in the wrong state. Time to move…) Prepare to defend your property, your community and perhaps even your country. It really is coming down to an outbreak of civil war across America, and the insane, fascist Left will stop at nothing to stomp out all voices of liberty and install their own totalitarian system of government under which no dissent is allowed at all. Leftism is fascism, remember. If you do not agree with all their insane, delusional narratives about climate change, transgenderism, government spending or socialized health care, then you will be silenced and punished. The book burnings have literally begun; the Left’s calls for the mass killings of the voices of liberty are on the rise, and the Left has become a mindless mass of dangerous zombies who are mentally ill (and extremely violent). This will obviously not end peacefully. PRIORITY: How to stay informed as the attempted coup and civil war unfolds STOP using Google as your search engine. Start using GoodGopher.com instead. STOP using Google News to find out what’s happening. Use Censored.news instead. STOP using Facebook, period. Use GAB.ai instead. STOP buying from Amazon.com. Every purchase funds the same owner as the Washington Post, which is a traitorous, fake news propaganda front that’s actively trying to overthrow the Republic. NEVER believe what you get from NPR, NYT, CNN, WashPost or other anti-American, left-wing media outlets.

Pat Buchanan: It Isn’t Watergate Yet, But How Long Can This Sustain?

Alex Pfeiffer Reporter 10:28 PM 05/17/2017

Pat Buchanan says the nonstop uproar following Trump’s firing of former FBI director James Comey is not comparable to Watergate, but he does wonder if the Trump presidency can function with this level of drama. Buchanan was a central figure in the Richard Nixon administration and just released “Nixon’s White House Wars: The Battles That Made And Broke a President and Divided America Forever.” He spoke to The Daily Caller Wednesday about the Trump presidency and other topics. You wrote on Monday that the firing of Comey is nothing like Watergate. Do you still think these comparisons are overblown in light of Tuesday’s New York Times report that Trump asked Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn? I do. We haven’t got a single crime yet or a single indictment yet. By the time of the Saturday Night Massacre — in the middle of the Watergate scandal which lasted 18 months — you had people convicted and imprisoned, you had others who were on trial or facing indictment, you had others who had lawyered up and whose names had been dropped, you had congressional hearings, you had universal cries in the House for impeachment, and the White House was clearly deep in a crisis. To compare the situation then with the situation now is absurd. I will say there is a valid comparison between the blood-in-the-water atmosphere of this city now and the blood-in-the-water atmosphere of 1973/1974 after March ’73. There’s another difference, and that’s the media. You had The Washington Post, CBS and the networks. You had a morning newspaper and an evening newspaper and three networks. Now you’ve got a new headline, a new revelation every day at least. Sometimes twice a day. It seems like a great deal more activity going on, but I think in terms of the situation, they’re not comparable. This is not comparable to ’73. Will this distract him from his policy plans? What’s the effect this will have on his presidency? There’s no question that the agenda has been put on the back-burner. At least for the cable networks and the newspapers with all these conflicts. There’s no question that the agenda has suffered. I think the president has been hurt to a degree if his approval rating is around 38 or 40 percent. The Republican Party is sort of mute right now on Capitol Hill. This has been a dramatic four months. The question is, is can we sustain this kind of intensity for 44 more months? You don’t think so? [Laughing] I went through Watergate all 18 months and we’re only four months in. It’s fairly advanced in those terms. In terms of the division and the clamors and the rodomontade if you will. Ann Coulter recently told me that she hasn’t been too pleased with the opening months of the administration. Do you agree? I knew when Trump got in, he’s going to have to fight for his agenda every day. A part of the Republican Party disagrees with it and a part of the Republican Party will also seek to sabotage and stop it. It’s going to be a long slog. I accept that. Indispensable to the agenda is the president himself. It doesn’t depend as much on the people around him as long as he stays true to his goals and on trade it looks like he really is trying to do that. I’ve got my own ideas on what he ought to do. I think you’re going to need a tariff and then use all the revenues from the tariff to cut taxes on American corporations. I think he’s trying to do something there. He’s clearly working on something on the borders. He retains his reluctance to get involved in a major war in the Middle East. A new war which would consume his presidency. The people we’ve been battling with all these years they didn’t say, “Well it’s all over we’re going home.” As soon as the election was over, the same old interests began to advance the same old agendas without much opposition. Does the GOP eventually get around to embracing Trumpism completely? Trump was a good salesman for these ideas, and these ideas had real currency with the American people. I think the Republican Party will be brought around to these ideas because their previous ideas were unsustainable. Open borders, and refusing to protect the borders, and amnesties like Bush and McCain wanted was going to be a disaster for the country and the party. You keep up the same trade policies with China running $400 billion trade surpluses and you won’t have a manufacturing plant left in the country. And you get involved in a couple more wars over there, the American people will rise up against the Republican Party and throw them out the way they did in 2006 and 2008. It’s not the persuasiveness of tactics that got these issues elevated in the hearts and minds of millions. It’s what happened. We tried the wars, we tried the free trade globalism, and we tried the open borders and people don’t like the results. And they’re not going to like it better if we go back to the same approach. You’ve written much about your worries about how demographic changes will negatively affect the nation. What do you think is the political effect that will come from this? We are currently seeing the rise of the alt right, left-wing violence… If you see more of the cause, you will see more of the effect. How dumb can these people be. Take a look at what’s happening in Europe. You have secessionist movements in more than half a dozen countries. You’ve got nationalism across Europe, you’ve got ethno-nationalism, you’ve got pro-Russian governments rising, autocracy is more attractive to people. People got to take a look. This isn’t because a couple of guys have been preaching something for a few years. We’ve been predicting it. It’s the events that matter. They decide things. When we ran with these issues in the 90s, you had tremendous support, but the thing people said was what we’re doing right now isn’t that bad so let’s stick with this. If you don’t address the causes you will get the same results, and I don’t understand people who don’t realize that. This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.

Gowdy Exposes Comey Cover-Up Of Clinton/Lynch 'Tarmac' Meeting As U.S. Media Becomes A Global Laughingstock With 'Fake News' Stories

May 17, 2017 By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

While the mainstream media just hit 'peak meltdown," in their attempts to smear President Trump, with "anonymous" claims they cannot back up with evidence or named sources, self-written memos called "leaks," and publishing outright "fake news" almost daily, the U.S. media has not only been turned into a global laughing stock, but the unintended consequences of their war on the Trump administration just exposed one of the biggest lies that came out of the Obama administration and the corruption that went all the way to the top of the intelligence community. THE MSM CLAIMS WITH NO EVIDENCE We'' start with the claim by the NYT once again by unnamed sources, and the response by the Senate Intel Chair Richard Burr. The huge "claim" of the day by the New York Times is that someone read them a partial part of an alleged memo, supposedly written by former FBI Director James Comey, claiming that President Trump asked Comey to end the Flynn investigation. PBS NewsHour's Lisa Desjardins spoke with Senate Intel Chair Richard Burr, who says that he and ranking member Mark Warner, spoke with Comey multiple times, including the day before his firing and he "never mentioned" President Trump's supposed request to back away from the Michael Flynn investigation. Burr also makes it clear that it is not President Trump's burden to disprove the NYT's article, it is the NYT burden to prove their assertion by obtaining the alleged memo. Yesterday the big claim and viral screeching by the MSM was a Washington Post story that President Trump shared classified information with the Russians during a meeting at the White House, once again the MSM using "anonymous" sources within the intelligence community, while U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, who was present at the meeting in question, called the report false. (More on that here) In response to that claim, Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying the U.S. mainstream media was causing "political schizophrenia," in the U.S., stating "It's hard to imagine what else these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next. What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don't understand the damage they're doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt." Putin also offered to send over a transcript of the meeting, proving the media allegations false, according to Reuters. Reuters also highlights Putin's sarcasm as he told reporters "I'll be forced to issue him (Lavrov) with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. It was very bad of him." The sarcasm is clear there, but it is the video of his comments and the laughter from the audience and Lavrov himself, that shows exactly how much of a laughing stock the U.S. media has become globally. MSM REOPENS A CAN OF WORMS - OBAMA ADMIN/CLINTON CORRUPTION EXPOSED & COMEY COVER UP In researching the latest MSM claim and the reactions from congressional members that are part of the separate investigations occurring in Congress, I ran across an interview with Representative Trey Gowdy, a member of the House oversight committee, where he says he wants to see the actual memo, if it exists, in its entirety, and to speak with Comey, as part of the investigative process, because with all due respect, he says "There is a reason newspaper articles are not admissible in any courtroom in the United States." The shocker came towards the end of the interview though, while discussing Comey himself, to which Gowdy asserts he has had many disagreements with, including his determination to not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton in the private email server scandal and her negligence in handling classified information on said server. Previously Gowdy had taken issue with Comey's claim that while Clinton mishandled classified data, she should not be charged because she showed no "intent," with Gowdy asserting that "intent" was not the standard to charge Clinton criminally, because had intent been found, that would rise to the level of treason and Congress deliberately made sure that "intent" was not needed to be found in order to secure charges in a case like that. (Watch that assertion here) The reason I highlight that specifically is because it is part of the bigger picture, where Gowdy has often ripped into Comey for his handling of the FBI investigation and conclusions, because in the video below, he defends Comey's decision to take the decision out of the DOJ's hands, in the now-infamous July 5, 2016 speech by Comey where he explained the illegal actions taken by Hillary Clinton, but then stated no charges would be filed. Make no mistake, Godwy insists he still disagrees with the decision to file no charges against Clinton, but he agrees with the decision to usurp the DOJ's authority in making the determination not to prosecute Clinton..... and his reasons why will blow your mind. THE TARMAC MEETING BETWEEN BILL CLINTON AND FORMER AG LORETTA LYNCH In the midst of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton, it was huge news that Bill Clinton met with Obama's AG Loretta Lynch on a tarmac, before the decision as to whether to charge Clinton had been announced. At the time, Loretta Lynch claimed the meeting was "purely social," saying they talked about grandchildren and golf, and immediately made it clear that due to the optics of the meeting with Clinton on the tarmac, she would accept whatever recommendations FBI investigators and career prosecutors make about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, without recusing herself. Well, according to Gowdy in the interview below, there was much more to that "tarmac meeting" than what Lynch admitted to, so much more that it is "classified" information. Gowdy says he has seen that information and that Comey knew of it, and that was the reason he had to usurp the protocol where the DOJ is the final decision makers as to whether to prosecute Hillary Clinton. The portion of the aforementioned discussions starts at approximately the 5:30 minute mark below, when Martha MacCallum asks Gowdy "I want to go back a little further in the Jim Comey story. You put out a statement when he was fired, saying that he had a very tough job and access to the facts that perhaps the rest of us did not, is the way that you put it. A lot of people have said his performance on July 5th when he came out and said 'you know we have all this evidence, extreme carelessness on the part of Hillary Clinton and yet we are not going to prosecute her.' Was that news conference enough, in and of itself, to let him go do you think.?" Gowdy responds "No, and I think when history knows the full fact pattern that led director Comey to have that July news conference, I mean, I think what your viewers know is the meeting on the tarmac, between the spouse of a suspect, or the target of an investigation, and the Attorney General. What your viewers don't know Martha, and what Jim Comey frankly can't tell them because it's classified, and I can't tell them because it is classified, there were a lot of other reasons that Jim Comey decided to take that decision upon himself, and I think history, and I have had plenty of differences with Jim Comey, I want to be really clear about that, lots of them, but I think history is going to much kinder to Jim Comey and that July press conference, than the Democrats were when he had it. I think he had access information that because he is a stand up guy, and he's not going to disseminate classified information, although God knows everybody else is, he is not going to do it even if it casts him in a negative light. So all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac. Jim Comey had access to additional information, that I am convinced left him with no other choice than to make the decision he made in July." MacCullum then tries to nail him down on exactly what he means, asking him "So, you are saying he had no choice, that there was pressure on him to not prosecute Hillary Clinton, is that what you are suggesting." That is where we get to the can of worms that the MSM has managed to reopen, where Gowdy states straight out "No, no. I think he had access to information and he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, and the integrity of the process, and I probably just ought to leave it right there. I am not talking about pressure, I don't think the guy, I don't think the guy feels pressure. I think he wanted the public to have confidence in the investigation and the outcome, even though I disagreed with the outcome, he wanted you to have confidence in the process. He had access to information that your viewers don't have, and they may not ever have, because it is classified, but trust me when I tell you this Martha, I know what it was, and I have been a critic of Jim Comey in the past, but he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself, and history will be a hell of a lot kinder to him that the Democrats were at the time. MacCullum states "I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands." Gowdy ends by saying "You're very perceptive."

Listen to the discussion, then we will go over the ramifications of what Gowdy just exposed to the public. May 17, 2017 Gowdy Exposes Comey Cover-Up Of Clinton/Lynch 'Tarmac' Meeting As U.S. Media Becomes A Global Laughingstock With 'Fake News' Stories

Gowdy ends by saying "You're very perceptive." Listen to the discussion, then we will go over the ramifications of what Gowdy just exposed to the public. ANALYSIS & QUESTIONS Not one of the MSM hit jobs on Trump has brought up that long ago controversial meeting between Bill Clinton, the spouse of a woman that was the target of a massive FBI investigation, and whether you agree with Gowdy whether or not Comey is a stand up guy or not, the fact that he brought that "tarmac" meeting up in his analysis of the reasons written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as justification to fire Comey, where he wrote that Comey was "wrong to usurp the Attorney General's authority on July 5, 2016, and announce his conclusion that the case should be closed without prosecution." It is very interesting that as part of that letter, Rosenstein also wrote "The Director now defends his decision by asserting that he believed attorney General Loretta Lynch had a conflict." Gowdy has just admitted, on television, that not only did Comey believe Lynch had a conflict, but that the nature of the conflict included "classified" information. What exactly is "classified" about discussing "grandchildren and golf," which is what Lynch claimed her and Bill Clinton discussed at the time? This also brings up the question as to whether Rosenstein, or the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has been given access to the "classified" information about the meeting between Lynch and Clinton. Did Comey, or any member of the FBI, hide said information from the Trump administration? If not, wouldn't Rosenstein's letter have reflected that by using different wording, and if so, what was Comey and the FBI covering up about that "tarmac meeting?" Take this a step further. If Loretta Lynch, the Attorney General for the Obama administration, was discussing classified information with Bill Clinton, who at the time held no administrative position within the government, is that not itself a criminal act? We now know that whatever they discussed has been listed as classified, because Gowdy just exposed it. Wasn't it the FBI's job to hold Lynch accountable and could they, given that the FBI is listed as a Department of Justice agency, making Lynch officially Comey's boss? BOTTOM LINE Given the fact that Comey had a long history of ending cases in a favorable manner to the Clintons, going back to 2004, as well as the Comey/Clinton Foundation connections, the FBI should now be initiating a new investigation into Hillary Clinton, starting from scratch, as well as an in-depth investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, specifically detailing the "tarmac meeting" between Bill Clinton and Lynch. It is this writer's sincere hope that President Trump be made aware of Gowdy's interview, the "classified" information pertaining to the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting, as well as the fact that the previous administration, with the help of the FBI, covered up the nature of the discussion between Clinton and Lynch. Representative Gowdy just told them exactly where to look. It is time to stop ignoring the real stories, the real scandals, using named sources like Gowdy in this interview, in favor of the fake news stories being pushed by the MSM using unnamed and anonymous sources that provide no evidence of their assertions.

Israeli ambassador:'full confidence in US intelligence'

Iyar 20, 5777 , 16/05/17

Israel's ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, referred to the report Tuesday that the source of the classified information which President Trump revealed to the Russian foreign minister was Israel. "Israel has full confidence in our intelligence relationship with the US and we expect to deepen that relationship in the coming years under President Trump," said Dermer.

Trump should not trust words of Israel's enemies

CAL THOMAS Tribune Content Agency May 10, 2017

President Donald Trump is about to score a religious trifecta, visiting Saudi Arabia, Israel and Rome, the “home” of three monotheistic religions. The president has said he wants to make the ultimate deal and achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians. While the goal is similar to a high school kid attempting to hit a curveball from an all-star pitcher, the scenario cannot end well for Israel. How do I know this? One has only to look at history. There has never – never – been a time when an American president has sought to lessen tensions in the region that Israel has not been smeared as the main impediment and required to “do more” to make peace happen. Israel is not an impediment to peace. Her enemies are. Here’s the danger for Trump. The Koran allows Muslims to lie to “nonbelievers” in pursuit of Islam’s goal of an earthly kingdom ruled by their religion. An example occurred last week when Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met at the White House with Trump. Abbas said, “Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children and grandchildren, in a culture of peace.” That is a flat-out lie, as even a cursory Google search or visit to the Palestinian Media Watch website proves. Trump correctly saw the problem in a campaign speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee: “In Palestinian textbooks and mosques, you’ve got a culture of hatred that has been fomenting there for years. And if we want to achieve peace, they’ve got to go out and they’ve got to start this educational process. They have to end education of hatred.” Which country promotes the most extreme form of Islam in children’s textbooks, mosques and their media? It is Saudi Arabia. If a person, or nation, believes they have a mandate from their “god” to lie to achieve their goals, how likely is it that even a president is not regarded as an “infidel” whose desire for peace can be used to damage Israel’s best interests? As Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick correctly noted last week: “Israel is the most immediate casualty of Trump’s decision to embrace Abbas and the PLO, because the PLO is Israel’s enemy. Abbas is an anti-Semite. His doctoral dissertation, which he later published as a book, is a Holocaust denying screed. “Abbas engages in anti-Semitic incitement on a daily basis, both directly and indirectly. It was Abbas who called for his people to kill Jews claiming that we pollute Judaism’s most sacred site, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, with our ‘filthy feet.’ The Palestinian media and school system which he controls with an iron fist both regularly portray Jews as evil monsters, deserving of physical annihilation.” This is not the attitude of one with whom a president or prime minister of Israel can make peace. A virus of hatred toward Israel and Jews is epidemic throughout the region. One is as likely to change the minds of such people as persuade a serious Christian to deny the resurrection of Jesus, or an Orthodox Jew to accept Him as Messiah. The difference is that Christians and Jews do not have world domination as their goal and violence as their method. Trump should re-read his AIPAC speech, because he was right to say what he said then. Abbas lied to the president during his visit. Trump can expect more lies on his trip to Saudi Arabia, whose leaders may promise all sorts of things and tell the president what he wants to hear, but won’t mean it. The proof is in their interpretation of their religion. As always, the West must pay less attention to what the enemies of Israel say and more attention to what they do. – Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribpub.com.

Netanyahu denies privately urging Trump not to move embassy to Jerusalem

Fox News reporter tweets ‘everyone’ in DC says PM told president not to do it; PM’s office calls report a ‘lie,’ releases minutes from White House talks

By Alexander Fulbright May 15, 2017, 9:23 pm

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vehemently denied a Fox News reporter’s claim that he told President Donald Trump not to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In a post on his Twitter account on Monday, Fox News correspondent Conor Powell wrote that “everyone” he has spoken to familiar with the deliberations on moving the embassy has confirmed that Netanyahu told Trump not to go through with the move. “Everyone I’ve spoken to in DC that has been briefed on #Jerusalem embassy move says #Netanyahu told #Trump not to move embassy at this time,” he tweeted. Netanyahu’s office firmly denied the report, flatly calling it a “lie,” and, in a highly unusual move, released what it said were partial minutes of Netanyahu’s conversations with Trump at the White House in February to disprove the claim. “The embassy — the PM supports moving it,” wrote then-national security adviser Yaakov Nagel, following Netanyahu and Trump’s meeting in the Oval Office, according to the PMO. “The PM was asked about the embassy and explained [that moving it] would not lead to bloodshed in the region, as some were trying to intimidate [President Trump] into believing,” Nagel wrote after the two leaders met over lunch. The PMO also released a portion of a summary from a conversation in January between Israel’s Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer and then US national security adviser designate Michael Flynn prior to Trump’s inauguration. “[Dermer] explained why moving the embassy would help advance peace and not the opposite. “This would send the message that we are in Jerusalem to stay. Moving the embassy would force the other side to contend with the lie they’ve constructed — that Israel has no connection to Jerusalem — and will cause them to understand that Israel will be here forever with Jerusalem as its capital.” Powell’s tweet on Monday came after Netanyahu again publicly reiterated his support on Sunday for moving the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, rejecting sniping from the Israeli right that he does not privately enthuse about the idea, and saying it would help advance peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. “Israel’s position has been stated many times to the US government and to the world,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “Moving the US embassy to Jerusalem will not only not harm the peace process, it will advance it by correcting a historical wrong and by shattering the Palestinian fantasy that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel.” Netanyahu’s remarks came in response to comments by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Trump is currently assessing whether moving the US embassy to Jerusalem would help or hurt prospects for clinching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. “The president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process,” Tillerson said in an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He said Trump’s decision would be informed by feedback from all sides, “most certainly” including “whether Israel views it as helpful to a peace initiative or perhaps a distraction.” Since taking office, Trump has backed away from his campaign pledge to move the embassy in a gesture to Israel, saying he’s still studying the issue. But Tillerson linked Trump’s deliberations directly to his aspirations for brokering Mideast peace. Jerusalem’s status is one of the most emotionally charged issues in the conflict, with both sides laying claims. Israel captured East Jerusalem — claimed by Palestinians for the capital of a future independent state — from Jordan in the 1967 war and annexed it, a move not internationally recognized. The Palestinians argue that moving the embassy would prejudge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict, undermining America’s status as an effective mediator. US presidents of both parties have repeatedly waived a US law requiring the embassy be moved to Jerusalem. The most recent waiver — signed by former president Barack Obama — expires on June 1. Trump is seen as increasingly likely to sign a six-month renewal of the waiver before it expires, as he continues deliberating. On Monday, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that while he believes the US embassy should be moved to Jerusalem, the issue should not be turned into a public spat with Washington, in apparent rebuke of political leaders from both sides of the aisle who have echoed Netanyahu in urging that the US embassy be brought to the capital as a way of cementing Israeli sovereignty over the city. Times of Israel staff and AP contributed to this report.

Single mum in China raises disabled son to become Harvard law student

He was born disabled, and doctors told his parents he was "not worth saving". But thanks to his mother's unflinching support, Chinese man Ding Ding, who has cerebral palsy, defied the odds by gaining admission into Harvard University nearly 30 years later. Mr Ding, 29, attributes much of his success to his mother Zou Hongyan, Chinese news agency Xinhua reported on Monday (May 15). In 1988, he nearly suffocated during a birth complication, which left him with cerebral palsy. Doctors in Hubei province, China, told Ms Zou that her child was "not worth saving", saying that he would grow up either disabled or with low intelligence. To Ms Zou's dismay, her husband sided with the doctors. "Let's not have this child. He will be a burden to us all our lives," he said. Ms Zou insisted on saving their baby, and soon the couple divorced. To support her son, Ms Zou took up a full-time position at a college in Wuhan, and also worked part-time as a protocol trainer and insurance salesman. In her free time, she took Ding to rehabilitation sessions, regardless of the weather. She taught herself how to massage his stiff muscles, and would also play educational games with him. To some, Ms Zou might have seemed like a harsh parent. She insisted on teaching him how to use chopsticks during mealtimes, even though he found this extremely difficult at first, so he would not have to always explain his disability to others when he had meals with them. "I didn't want him to be ashamed about his physical disability," she said. "Because he is less skilled than others in many areas, my expectations of him are higher, so as to get him to work harder." Mr Ding graduated with a degree in environmental science from Peking University's school of engineering in 2011. That same year, he enrolled in a second degree programme at the university's international law school. In 2016, after working for two years, Mr Ding was accepted into Harvard Law School. "I never dared to dream of applying to Harvard. It was my mother who never stopped encouraging me to give it a try. Whenever I had any doubts, she would guide me forward," Xinhua quoted Mr Ding as saying. Mr Ding, who describes his mother as his "spiritual mentor", said that although Harvard has awarded him a scholarship covering 75 per cent of his school fees, the remaining sum was no small burden for his mother. "At 29, I am still dependent on my mother. I hope I will soon become more successful and self-reliant, so she can have a better life," he said.

Sheriff David Clarke Says He’s Joining DHS

Clarke: 'I'm both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position'

BY: Natalie Johnson May 17, 2017 3:26 pm

The Trump administration tapped Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to serve as assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security for partnership and engagement. Clarke, a tough-talking, conservative firebrand recognized by his penchant for cowboy hats, announced the appointment during an interview with a local Wisconsin radio station Wednesday afternoon. "I'm both honored and humbled to be a appointed to this position by [DHS Sec. John Kelly], working for the Trump administration in this position," Clarke told WISN Milwaukee. Clarke, a Trump loyalist who served as a surrogate during the campaign, was one of three black speakers who endorsed President Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention. He is a vocal proponent of gun rights with close ties to the National Rifle Association. His name has been floated as a possible replacement to former FBI Director James Comey, but the announcement Wednesday scraps those rumors. Clarke's brazenness and tendency to fire-off provocative, off-hand comments have contributed to his rise as one of Wisconsin's most controversial political figures. The law-and-order sheriff has frequently told Black Lives Matters protesters to "stop trying to fix the police, fix the ghetto" and referred to Ferguson demonstrators as "vultures on a roadside carcass." Clarke is also facing scrutiny for the death of a mentally ill inmate who died of dehydration at the Milwaukee County Jail after being refused water for seven days. No criminal charges have been filed, but the case is under review by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office. The 38-year-old man was one of four people, including the newborn of an inmate, who died last year at the jail overseen by Clarke. The sheriff will replace the current acting assistant secretary John Barsa. CNN's Jim Acosta tweeted following publication of this story that DHS said, "No such announcement with regard to the Office of Public Engagement has been made."

Putin offers transcript of Trump-Lavrov meeting to prove US president didn't pass secrets

Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not divulged any secrets during a meeting in Washington with Russian officials and offered to prove it by supplying Congress with a transcript. But a leading U.S. Republican politician said he would have little faith in any notes Putin might supply. Two U.S. officials said on Monday Trump had disclosed classified information about a planned Islamic State operation to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov when they met last week, plunging the White House into a fresh controversy just four months into Trump's tenure. Trump, whose administration has been dogged by allegations that Russia helped him win the White House and that he and his allies are too cozy with Moscow, has defended his decision to discuss intelligence with the Russians after media reports of the meeting alarmed some U.S. and foreign politicians. President Putin deployed his trademark sarcasm on Wednesday to make clear he thought the accusation that Trump had divulged secrets absurd. "I spoke to him (Lavrov) today," a smiling Putin told a news conference with Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. "I'll be forced to issue him (Lavrov) with a reprimand because he did not share these secrets with us. Not with me, nor with representatives of Russia's intelligence services. It was very bad of him." Putin, who still hopes Moscow can repair battered ties with the United States despite a deepening political scandal in the United States related to Trump's purported Russia ties, said Moscow had rated Lavrov's meeting with Trump highly. If the Trump administration deemed it appropriate, Putin said Russia could hand over a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov to U.S. lawmakers to reassure them that no secrets were revealed. A Kremlin aide, Yuri Ushakov, later told reporters that Moscow had a written record of the conversation, not an audio recording.

The Trojan's New Horses

By Hal Lindsey

Is an American computer virus responsible for the many failed North Korean missile tests? In March, the New York Times reported, “Three years ago, President Barack Obama ordered Pentagon officials to step up their cyber and electronic strikes against North Korea’s missile program in hopes of sabotaging test launches in their opening seconds.” North Korea’s missile program started with a surprising level of success. But in the last three years, whether caused by U.S. computer sabotage or not, they have had a stunning number of test launch failures. The experts say that North Korean scientists learn from every failure. While that’s usually true, it may not be in this case. The scientists may already know the problem. It could be that their impetuous young “Supreme Leader,” Kim Jung-un, is pressing too hard, not giving them the time needed to do the job. If that’s the case, the question is not whether the scientists are learning the lesson, but is he? Kim might also be sabotaging himself in another way. He has a reputation for impromptu executions and imprisonments. He may be depleting the talent pool he needs in order to get his missiles working. President Obama’s 2014 order for sabotaging missile tests involves techniques that are considered “left of launch.” That means they
