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.

Hero Journalist Who Exposed CIA Infiltration and Manipulation of Media Found Dead

1/18/2017

Udo Ulfkotte, a brave, selfless, hero died on Friday at the age of 56. The legacy he leaves behind is one that gives context to today’s geopolitical relations between the United States and Russia.

by Rachel Blevins

Ulfkotte was a world-class German journalist, working for a major Germany newspaper, who came out and exposed how the mainstream media lies for the CIA. In an interview with RT in October 2014, Ulfkotte explained the CIA’s practice of manipulation and bribery: “I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public. “But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russiathis is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.” Ulfkotte also revealed that he was forced to publish the work of intelligence agencies under his name, and he was threatened with termination if he did not comply. The main reason he said he came out was because the intelligence agencies were pushing disinformation in order to push for war between Europe and Russia. Ulfkotte’s death was allegedly the result of a heart attack. However, he was aware the possible repercussions that could come from what he was exposing. In an interview with Russia Insider, he said: “When I told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Ulfkotte’s newspaper) that I would publish the book, their lawyers sent me a letter threatening with all legal consequences if I would publish any names or secrets — but I don’t mind. You see, I don’t have children to take care of.” He knew he would face persecution from the state, and he did. Ulfkotte told RT that German prosecutors searched his house on at least six separate occasions. Similar information was disclosed through the Church Committee Senate hearings that happened in 1975 with Sen. Frank Church leading the way and exposing the fact that the same thing happened in the U.S. with Operation Mockingbird. This all brings us back to now, where we are seeing intelligence agencies and the mainstream media pushing for war with Russia, and clashing against Trump. Ulfkotte also revealed the fact that there are mainstream media journalists who have been trained as CIA operatives, which is a topic WeAreChange has covered extensively over the years. Also at the Church hearings, it was revealed that the CIA has developed a poison dart gun that “gives deadly heart attacks and leaves no trace.” We don’t have all of the facts, and we don’t know exactly what happened to Ulfkotte, but we do know that he was a hero who put everything on the line in order for you to know the truth.

Something Very Strange Is Going On In Washington DC - More Signs Emerge They're Preparing To Unleash Chaos

January 17, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The new advertisement on the Backpage website seen screenshot below is called "Get Paid For Fighting Against Trump!" within which we learn that an organization called Demand Protest is allegedly hiring snowflakes and anarchists to stir up trouble in US cities across the country at a 'rocking' $50 an hour with a monthly 'retainer' of $2,500 as long as the 'hirees' participate in at least 6 'events' per year. Snowflakes paid to terrorize America, we see George Soros' tactics being used to wreak havoc at Donald Trump's inauguration, just the latest signs we're getting that all hell could break loose on Friday if 'Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's sore loser globalists' have their way. Infowars reporter Margaret Howell takes a look at this Backpage ad in the 2nd video below. Interestingly as Tucker Carlson from Fox News points out in the 3rd video below, it appears that this 'Demand Protest' is all a big hoax and as we see Tucker Carlson ripping the perpetrator apart, this is clearly one of the craziest Fox News videos that we have ever seen. Why would someone put ads in Backpages across the country, pay the money to develop a website and then get completely humiliated by Tucker Carlson on live TV? 'Lunatic fringe?' With 'protesters' seemingly forgetting that there's a HUGE difference between 'legal protest' and 'outright violence', we see in the first video below a very, very fine line separates the two as Project Veritas's James Okeefe joins Infowars. In fact, 'legal protest' can turn into 'terrorism' in moments. The fact that anarchists from DisruptJ20 have been caught planning an 'acid attack' upon one of the inaugural balls proves to us this may be no 'normal' presidential inauguration. An 'acid attack' sure doesn't fall under the guidelines of 'peaceful protest'. In fact, today we see part II of Project Veritas's investigation into the 'protests' that will be happening in DC and across the nation in the final video below and in Zero Hedge's new story called "Video Exposes Anti-Trump Group Plans To Shut Down DC Bridges And Highways With Clusterf*ck Blockades." As we see, what they have planned is anything but peaceful and could easily be used by ISIS terrorists in America who've promised to turn Trump's inauguration into a 'bloody Friday' exactly what they want and need to cause a maximum amount of mayhem. Promising to bring Washington DC and cities across America to a standstill, imagine being at the inauguration and all hell breaks loose but you're stuck there because of anarchists 'clusterf*ck blockades' that have left the cities metro system and roadways in total shutdown mode. Anarchists are aiding terrorists in such a situation. Showing once again why cities are death traps in a SHTF situation, the fact that several caches of weapons were recently found just lying out in the open in DC as was reported in this story from The Daily Sheeple shows us once again that there may be a massive conspiracy to stop Trump being planned and its clear leftists are resorting to terror. While ANP phone calls to Demand Protest's phone number requesting an interview have not been returned, we find it interesting that the phone number of Demand Protest (listed here) is (415) 666-2650. Are they working for satan himself? And as Susan Duclos reported this morning in her story on ANP, more recent strange events prove there may be a shutdown of independent news websites on Friday should 'an event' occur after several websites, including the Drudge Report and SteveQuayle.com, recently had their home pages revert to news from previous days. ANP has long warned that any real attempt to permanently shut down independent news websites such as Infowars, the Drudge Report, Zero Hedge, ANP and others could be looked at as an outright authoritarian move being made by a terrorist, dictatorial government ready to seize complete control and eliminate the 1st Amendment in America. We've warned that 'independent news' is the 'canary's in the coal mine' and any permanent shutdown of such websites should be a HUGE 'sign of tyranny' for Americans to look out for. While we will continue to pray that the 2nd Amendment is never needed to 'save' the 1st Amendment and freedom in America, it's quite clear that our Founding Fathers had tremendous wisdom. With Trump seemingly going to war with the US intelligence community most likely responsible for murdering the last US president to be gunned down in office, the fact that the CIA has a long history of covertly taking down government's all across the world is more proof that such a scenario is not impossible here. They did it once to JFK, they'll try it again. We also have to remind you that they have access to the most dangerous drug in the world, a drug which they use to 'program people MKUltra-style' to do things, anything they want them to do, and the victim has no clue. Called 'Devil's Breath' by locals in Colombia where the tree the flower is on grows freely, International Business Times reported back in 2012 that 'the most terrifying drug in the world' has been used by the CIA. Specifically called scopolamine, what evil could the CIA accomplish with a drug capable of doing this? The "Devil's Breath" drug scopolamine is a hallucinogen was recently brought to the public's attention by a documentary aired on Vice.com, which saw reporters travel to Colombia to see its deadly effects. A 'perfect weapon' to use for the CIA to ensure 'mind controlled slaves' we have to ask, how many CIA-programmed 'scopolamine zombies' will be wandering the streets of Washington DC on Friday? The fact alone that tens of thousands of mentally unstable snowflakes will be there is alone cause for alarm. And after the recent weapons caches have been found in DC, the editor's over at this SHTFPlan story asks today, is somebody planning on unleashing massive chaos on Friday? Is this more evidence of foul play afoot in Washington, D.C. ahead of the inauguration and one of the most contentious transfers of power in American history? There is simply no way to know, but with so many protests planned, so many in the establishment opposed to the Trump presidency and so much to gain from civil unrest, there is every reasons to question whether or not security has been properly arranged at the capital, and whether or not someone is preparing to unleash total chaos from the inception of the next administration. Although the inauguration will hopefully go off smoothly, and without a hitch, President-elect Trump has more enemies than he can count before he even takes office. There are enough bizarre and unexplained circumstances already unfolding to start a new chapter in the JFK assassination investigation – why would the national security structure allow such unstable conditions, unless they were hoping to profit from a beleaguered administration and an angry, outraged people? As we close in on the end of this most chaotic political season in most of our lives in Americans if not in the history of America, we pray for the safety of our public servants and everybody going to DC who intends to peacefully carry on time honored American traditions, whether that be attending Trump's inauguration or peacefully protesting against him. However, don't expect any sympathy from us for those who are going to DC to carry out acid attacks or construct 'clusterf*ck blockades' or trying to interupt others from going about their days. As recent Project Veritas videos prove to us, it appears there is going to be massive chaos in Washington DC on Friday, if the 'sore loser left' has their way.

Trump Is Already Facing a Soft Coup

Dave Hodges

Trump is entering office with a mandate from millions of disenfranchised Americans. The economic policies espoused by the self-serving, middle-class destroying establishment over the last 30 years have resulted in the rich getting obscenely richer and the poor getting miserably poorer. The end result is that economic and social mobility for average American families has declined, and for all practical purposes has disappeared. And what Obama calls an economic recovery is now much lower than in other advanced economies. This has been an important cause for disillusion and anger among many Americans who absolutely and correctly feel that the economic system is rigged against them and in favor of the very rich. It is not just that the rich are getting richer, there is also a secondary issue at work and it has to do with the fact that millions of Americans are witnessing the unveiling of a police state that discriminates against self-employment, the desecration of the Constitution and an attack upon traditional values that have their roots in Christianity. There is a smaller, but still large segment, who fear for their lives as Americans. Many Americans are very concerned because we see our enemies getting stronger by the day and Obama has seemingly done everything he can do to weaken America’s military. We have fewer ships than we did in World War I and fewer troops than we did prior to World War II when this nation was woefully unprepared to fight a war. Can a Trump Presidency make the desired changes that the people who elected hope to make? The Reduction of Cronyism During the 2016 campaign, Trump clearly stated that “If I become president, I couldn’t care less about my company. It’s peanuts… I wouldn’t ever be involved because I wouldn’t care about anything but our country, anything.” It was in this spirit that he stated that he would try and eliminate as much corruption as possible by eliminating the practice of people connected to Congress going to work as lobbyists for private interests for five years following their governmental service. This is a brilliant move because I am tired of being sold out by former Congressmen in this regard. The American people should expect their politicians not to use their positions, directly or indirectly, to enrich themselves. Now, can Trump get Congress to vote against their own corruption? That remains to be seen. Trump Will Not Be Soft on Putin’s Militarism. Russia expects to enter into discussions with Trump regarding their nuclear build up and the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, is the on the record as having said the same. Lavrov said the new agenda for such negotiations should also include new hypersonic weapons with scalar wave technology, the US missile shield in Europe, space weapons and nuclear testing. From what I have been able to learn about a secret space program which includes space weapons, this is will be the sticking point. The only reason that I believe that Russia and/or China has not yet attacked us is because Obama was unable to disarm our space-based weapons for which Russia and China do not yet have an answer for. Many of sources feel that Obama was apprehensive about attacking our space-based technology because the military would would have strongly rallied against the move and this was too much for Obama to take on. In a Sunday Times interview, Trump stated that we consider reviewing the US sanction on Russia so long as the Russians are willing to significantly reduce its stockpile of nuclear weapons. The dialogue between Russia and Trump is very positive and takes some of the sting out of Obama’s military provocations toward Russia. Free Trade Agreements The Global Research website is truly showing their anti-American spirit with their recent writings and this is typical of many of the MSM publications. Global Research accuses Trump of protectionism and his actions will global trade back There is nothing more despicable than a government that sells its citizens out. I applaud Trump for trying to keep jobs in America. I welcome the implementation of tariffs for American based corporations who cost millions of American jobs overseas in search of cheaper labor, which imposes untold amounts of human suffering. Yet, Global Research, NBC, CNN et al would expect you, the American people, to sacrifice your economic viability in the name of increasing the insane level of profits. Immigration It is not the immigrants we fear coming into the country looking for a better way of life. It is the drug cartels and the fifth column terrorist groups that accompany them. Why are organizations like CNN so opposed to vetting immigrants. Doesn’t Anderson Cooper care about national security? Trumps policies are hailed as xenophobic. No, they are anti-terrorist and anti-drug cartel. I fail to see why the immigration controls we successfully practiced in the 19th century are racist and xenophobic. They are common sense and cautious. Treason In Our Midst Is anyone else bothered by the fact that body count of Democratic Congressmen who are not attending the Inauguration is up to 38 and growing. Their charge is led by the very radicalized John Lewis. Lewis belongs to the Progressive Caucus which a clear front organization for the Communist Party as are the other 38 Congressmen. At minimum, I am concerned because these Congressmen are demonstrating that they will not work with this President. This is troublesome because the Congress and the President must work together for the good of the country. At maximum, I am concerned about this development because questions about these 38 Congressmen are being asked by my audience with regard to their real motivation. Many of my readers and viewers are questioning if these Congressmen want to simply be “out of the blast zone” at the inauguration. Even if this is not true, the public perception is damaging to the confidence that the people feel towards their government if it is going to work properly. Conclusion Mot one of these reforms will see the light of day with the current Congress we have as typified by John Lewis who demonstrates his anti-American sentiment with each passing day. All Trump will be able to accomplish is gridlock. How can the Americans stop the gridlock? The answer is simple. Every Congressman and one-third of the senators need to be shown the door in 2018. Only then, will Trump have meaningful reforms. At the end of the day, it is not up to Trump, it is up to us.

Exclusive: Trump Operative Roger Stone Survives Assassination Attempt

Doctors told him he had been poisoned with polonium and CDC tests found the substance in his blood

Infowars.com - January 17, 2017

Former Trump adviser Roger Stone was recently targeted for assassination, he revealed on the Tuesday edition of the Alex Jones Show. The renowned Republican operative says he’s usually very healthy, but became violently ill unexpectedly several weeks ago. “I am generally a healthy person. I have been a runner and a weight lifter. I am very careful in my diet. I’m a user of the Infowars supplements. I have been treated with acupuncture by perhaps the greatest acupuncturist in the state of Florida if not the United States,” Stone told radio host Alex Jones. Stone went on to describe that his symptoms presented themselves first as a “routine stomach virus,” but that he eventually grew “exceedingly ill.” “So I ultimately went to the doctors at Mt. Sinai hospital in Miami Beach, my own personal physician. They conducted extensive blood tests. Those blood tests were passed on to CDC.”“The general consensus is that I was poisoned,” Stone says. “I was poisoned with, they now say, a substance that may have been polonium or had the characteristics of polonium. This made me exceedingly ill. The conjecture of all the doctors was that I did not receive a large enough dose to kill me, but I have never been this ill.” Polonium-210 is a radioactive substance that releases extremely harmful alpha particles throughout the body producing cancer-causing free radicals. It has been used in numerous high profile assassinations, including that of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, and was suspected in the death of former PLO leader Yassar Arafat. Stone went on to contemplate who may have been behind the possible assassination attempt, fingering Democrat opposition and the intel community. “Who would want to do this to me? I am an enemy of the deep state. I think people know that I was an insider in American politics I was close to power in nine presidential elections. Everything Glenn Greenwald says [about the “deep state”] is true,” Stone claimed, referring to a recent The Intercept article which outlined how the intelligence community is attempting to stifle Trump. “The Republican/Democrat Bush Clinton deep state has manufactured this Russia fraud. They have compounded it by pushing a clearly fabricated document.” “Perhaps the fact that I’m effective on behalf of my beliefs has something to do with it,” Stone theorizes.

Netanyahu: Campaign to topple government is outrageous

By Jeremy Sharon 17 January 2017 03:48

Netanyahu entered the Likud Knesset faction meeting on Monday in a defiant mood and issued a message of harsh criticism against the press, who he accused of trying to topple his government. To raucous cheers, applause and chants of “Bibi, king of Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu entered the Likud Knesset faction meeting on Monday in a defiant mood and issued a message of harsh criticism against the press, who he accused of trying to topple his government. With the cloud of two police investigations hanging over his head, the prime minister could at least take comfort in the warm and enthusiastic welcome he was given by his MKs, advisers and Likud activists in the room. And if Netanyahu was upset by the poor showing of just three of the 10 Likud cabinet ministers at the meeting, he did not show it, although the same could not be said of coalition chairman MK David Bitan, who fumed afterward that he would start blocking legislation of truant ministers if their absenteeism continued. Addressing the media at the faction meeting, Netanyahu scolded them for what he described as “a huge media campaign against me designed to topple the Likud government which I lead,” describing the situation as “outrageous.” The prime minister claimed that certain members of the press were acting not just as journalists but also as “investigators, judges and hangmen” in an effort to politically decapitate him. “An entire investigation is being conducted on television,” Netanyahu said. “Every evening they are disseminating selectively and carefully filtered transcripts and deliberate lies on the two issues in question,” referring to the steady stream of broadcasts by Channel 2 on recorded conversations between the prime minister and Yediot Aharonot publisher Arnon “Noni” Mozes. Netanyahu alleged that the purpose of the media focus on the recordings, and the other investigation into alleged illicit gifts he may have received while in office, was to create a groundswell of pressure on the police and the attorney-general to file an indictment against him. “So I want to say to you, friends: in a democracy, governments are changed at the polling booth, not through orchestrated pressure on the attorney-general and the law enforcement services,” the prime minister declared. Speaking earlier in the day, opposition leader and Zionist Union head MK Isaac Herzog defended the press, and took Netanyahu to task for his Facebook post on Sunday in which the prime minister said that he had called elections after a bill was submitted that would have prevented the Israel HaYom newspaper from being distributed free of charge. In his post, Netanyahu was defending himself from accusations that the law had been concocted together with Mozes as part of a deal to ease the financial stress Israel HaYom was causing Yediot Aharonot, in return for Yediot softening its fiercely critical stance of the prime minister. The prime minister said he had prevented the Israel HaYom bill from being brought to a preliminary vote “for many months,” that he had voted against it, and that after the law passed, he “dismantled the government and went to elections, because of the subversion within the government to pass this law, among other [reasons].” But Herzog upbraided the prime minister for this statement, claiming it was proof that Netanyahu had a direct connection to Israel HaYom, as has always been claimed by his opponents. “Netanyahu has been revealed as someone who trades away Israeli democracy as if it is his private property, and all citizens in Israel should tremble for the image of Israeli democracy,” Herzog proclaimed. He said that even if no crime had been committed by the prime minister, “we are however talking about a severe breach of trust between the government and the citizens of the state.” Herzog also warned that if Netanyahu does not relinquish his role as communications minister, Zionist Union would file a petition to the High Court of Justice demanding that he do so. Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid was less scathing in his assessment of the situation, but said that the investigations into the prime minister have distracted the government from actual governing. “The prime minister should be considered innocent until proved otherwise, and we must remember and respect that,” he said, adding that the police, attorney-general and State Attorney’s Office need to be given time to complete their investigations and deliberations. The Yesh Atid leader stated, however, that this process must not be dragged on too long because of the need to govern the country. “We have real problems, and we cannot allow ourselves a prime minister who spends more time with his lawyers and in interrogation rooms than he does in cabinet discussions and hearings on the economy,” Lapid said. “The attorney-general needs to take this into account as well.”

Israel steps up shadow war with Hezbollah

By Ed Blanche, The Arab Weekly | Jan. 17, 2017 at 11:19 AM

Israel's Institute for Nation­al Security Studies stressed in its annual strategic assessment, released Jan. 2, that Hezbollah remains the most serious threat the Jewish state faces. It urged Israel's intelligence es­tablishment to intensity efforts to block the transfer of advanced weapons systems to Hezbollah — a process that may already be under way with a spate of air and missiles strikes against Syria. The vast majority of the arms supplied to Hezbollah from Iran pass through Syria. Hezbollah, a key force keeping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power amid the war in the country, is reportedly building military bases and seek­ing to establish a presence in the disputed Golan Heights, a strategic volcanic plateau that overlooks Is­rael's agricultural heartland. Iran, Hezbollah's patron and arms supplier, is listed as the second-ranking military threat by INSS, in part because of its distance from Israel. Combined, Iran and Hezbollah, which serves as the Islamic repub­lic's strategic arm in the Levant, present a comprehensive threat to Israel that far exceeds any other. This ranges from Iran's growing bal­listic missile force and the nuclear weapons Israel's military leaders are convinced it will develop in the coming years to Hezbollah's emerg­ing tactical capabilities. Much of that is due to advanced weaponry it amassed in recent years despite repeated Israeli airstrikes against weapons convoys and targeted assassinations in Syria and Lebanon of key figures in ac­quiring or developing Hezbollah's firepower. Hezbollah is estimated — largely by Israel — to possess more than 130,000 rockets and missiles, in­cluding long-range weapons capa­ble of destroying city blocks. In recent weeks, the covert war between Israel and Hezbollah that has dragged on for five years ap­parently flared again, possibly this time with higher stakes. There have been several missiles attacks reported in Syria, all pre­sumably Israeli weapons launched from either the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan Heights or from Lebanese airspace. These were ap­parently aimed at curtailing de­liveries of advanced weapons to Hezbollah that in the past have reportedly included Soviet-era SA- 22 air defense missiles, which, for the first time, allow Hezbollah to directly challenge Israel's control of the air in Lebanon and Syria, and Yakhont anti-ship missiles that could be used against Israel's off­shore gas facilities. On Nov. 30, at least two missiles, apparently fired by Israeli jets in Lebanese airspace, hit a con­voy of trucks outside Damascus, triggering speculation the trucks were carrying advanced weapons to Hezbollah. On Dec. 2, Israel report­edly conducted two airstrikes us­ing Popeye missiles around Damas­cus, one against a weapons depot manned by the Syrian Army's crack Fourth Armored Division at Sabbou­ra, northwest of the Syrian capital. The other blasted several cars near the Damascus-Beirut highway. In a 3 a.m. strike on Dec. 7, several surface-to-surface mis­siles hit installations in the Mezzeh military airbase at Damascus Inter­national Airport, where Hezbollah maintains a high-security facility for receiving arms airlifted from Iran before they are trucked to Leb­anon. The missiles started several big fires at the airport, triggering major explosions. In a separate attack on that date, Hezbollah facilities in and around the town of Zabadani, on the bor­der with Lebanon and a key junc­tion in the overland arms route to Hezbollah strongpoints, were hit. On Friday, Syria accused Is­rael of another missile strike on the Mezzeh base in a predawn attack that triggered multiple explosions and caused casualties. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged for the first time in April 2016 that Israel has been mounting airstrikes in Syrian territory to curb shipments of what he called "game-changing weaponry" to Hezbollah. The Jerusalem Post suggested on Dec. 8 that the Israelis' strikes the previous day had tar­geted "the presumed base of the Syrian Army's secretive Unit 450, a branch of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Centre that is at the center of the Assad regime's chemical weapons program north of Damascus." On the same day, Israel's hawkish defense minister, Avigdor Lieber­man, raised the ante by claim­ing that the Israeli Air Force had thwarted an attempt to transfer chemical weapons from Syria to Lebanon. If that is true, it suggests that Hezbollah and Iran may be pre­pared to escalate the covert efforts to upgrade Hezbollah's arsenal to a highly dangerous new level. Lieberman often shoots from the hip and his comments may have had political overtones but it was the first time a top-level Israeli offi­cial had voiced such concerns. These air and missile strikes con­stitute what the Israelis call a "cam­paign between wars," a concept that involves overt and covert oper­ations designed to thwart emerging threats, particularly the acquisition of advanced weaponry. This is a finely balanced confron­tation short of war in which both sides observe certain restraints that will prevent hostilities escalating to all-out conflict. But now Israel seems to be step­ping up the shadowy conflict with Hezbollah, as Iran seeks to estab­lish a presence in the divided Go­lan, a red line for Israel. Lieberman warned that while Is­rael has no interest in intervening in the Syrian war, it would take ac­tion to preserve Israelis' security, particularly on advanced weapons transfers to Hezbollah. Israel, he declared, "will make decisions ac­cording to this policy without tak­ing other circumstances or restric­tion into account." This article originally appeared at The Arab Weekly.

Man Escapes Fiery Car Crash When He Calls on the Name of the Lord

3:00PM EST 1/16/2017 Jessilyn Justice

Michael Bridges was trapped in the fiery prison of his car. As flames licked closer, Bridges said the only thing he could think of: Jesus. "Usually when you're hurt, you call your momma, like if you fall out of a tree or off your bike, but this time I called for Jesus Christ," Bridges said. "I said 'God, don't let me die like this,' and when I said that, this guy opened the door to the truck." Meet Jason Williams, the man on the other side of the door. The truck driver saw Bridges' truck blow a tire, catch on fire and careen across traffic and into the grass. "I stood there for a minute screaming 'Is anybody in there?' and I didn't hear nothing, and then I heard, 'Jesus, get me out of here,' and that's when I climbed up there and opened the door and helped him out or whatever happened up there. A miracle happened up there," Williams said. According to Landmine magazine, Williams arrived at the vehicle to hear Bridges scream for help. As Williams attempted to extricate Bridges by the arms, the fire was too hot. Williams lost his grip as Bridges' nearly melted skin slid away from Williams. Williams' tenacity kicked in. He grabbed Bridges in a giant bear hug and successfully pulled the man to safety. "We got up and walked away from that. If that's not God, then I don't know what is," Bridges said.

Mom Is Trapped by Airport Gunman—Then a Stranger Lays on Top of Her & Whispers 4 Words

The shooter was only 30 feet away from her. She dropped to the ground and immediately began to pray…

The first week of 2017 didn’t quite prove to be full of moments that restore our faith in humanity, like many of us had been hoping for. A 26-year-old gunman landed at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, and opened fire at baggage claim. The incident left five tragically dead, and six others injured. Annika Dean was waiting for her luggage when the gunman began shooting around her. “I knew immediately what was happening,” she explains. “I knew it wasn’t a firecracker.” The Florida mother of two had received training for emergencies in her work as an elementary school teacher. But being trapped in an open area with a gunman only feet from her was something that no amount of training could prepare her for. With the shooter just 30 feet away from her, and no safe place to take cover, Annika immediately dropped to the ground and began praying—there was only one thing on her mind. “I was praying specifically that my children would still have their mother. I was worried that they might not.” That’s when 70-year-old Tony Bartosiewicz appeared to be the answer to Annika’s prayers. The retired electrician from Rochester, New York, had flown to Florida with his wife to set sail on a cruise. His wife was in another area of baggage claim when Tony saw a woman who needed his help. He shielded Annika with his body, and in just four words, let her know that she was going to be okay. “He basically climbed on top of me and whispered, ‘I will protect you.’ I knew he might be a victim, but I also knew I would survive.” Annika didn’t look up as the shooting continued, and it wasn’t until later when the gunman was in police custody that Tony told her the man had actually stood directly over them, all while continuing to shoot. Five people around them lost their lives, and six others were severely injured, but both Annika and her guardian angel, Tony, were completely unharmed. Her kids still had a mother, and Annika could not wait to thank the man who saved her life. “The first thing I said to him was I thanked him and told him that it was terrifying and what he did brought me comfort, that it was just so comforting. I thanked him throughout the day and told him he was a hero.” Tony and his wife took off on their cruise shortly after, but a comment from the couple’s daughter suggests this selfless act is typical of Tony Bartosiewicz. “That’s the kind of person he is,” she said. “He would do something like this without thinking.”

Sen. Barrasso: For 8 years the EPA has made life hard for too many Americans. That’s about to change

By Sen. John Barrasso M.D. Published January 17, 2017 FoxNews.com

Seventy-five thousand dollars per day. That’s how much the Environmental Protection Agency threatened to fine a private land owner in my home state of Wyoming. The crime: digging a pond in his back yard. This was an appalling overreach by the Obama administration’s EPA and its regulation of American’s property. Sadly, this story is not unique. For the past eight years, the EPA has abused and attacked far too many hard-working American families. A regulatory rampage by EPA has led to the loss of thousands of coal mining jobs in Wyoming, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky. Wisconsin is poised to lose more than 20,000 jobs in the next decade because of the Obama administration’s proposed regulations on carbon emissions. The misguided obsession of the EPA has created needless economic burdens for Americans. It has, at the same time, put people’s health in danger. Negligence on the part of the EPA resulted in more than 3 million gallons of toxic wastewater being dumped into a river at the Gold King Mine in Colorado. The plume of toxic liquid flowed downstream to New Mexico and polluted the Navajo Nation’s main source of drinking and irrigation water. In Flint, Michigan, aging pipes and improperly treated water caused lead poisoning in children. When EPA officials learned of the pending disaster, they failed to respond. The agency's misplaced priorities are harming state governments as well. North Dakota stands to lose more than $100 million in tax revenue over the next four years because of the Obama administration’s “clean power plan” regulations. The state will have to look to already-strapped families to make up the difference or else cut back on services. Disregard for the consequences of its actions has become the trademark of the EPA for the last eight years. Policy goals and talking points have consistently taken priority over American families. This cannot be the case any longer. As chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, I look forward to ushering in wholesale change at the EPA. I will be doing it alongside a committed and capable administrator. President-elect Trump has named Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to lead the EPA and to overhaul the agency. Attorney General Pruitt has seen the effects of over regulation in his own state and has worked to stop them. Pruitt has distinguished himself by challenging the Obama administration on several of its most burdensome rules. He stood up for Oklahomans against the EPA’s extreme regulations on greenhouse gasses, methane emissions, and cross state air pollution. He took action against unworkable water rules and air standards. He sued the federal government to make sure that it was interpreting the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts as Congress actually wrote them, not how it benefited President Obama’s political agenda. Attorney General Pruitt is respected by his peers for the work he has done. His work in Oklahoma protected the environment and strengthened the economy by standing up for states’ rights. Attorneys general from 24 states authored a letter in support of his nomination. They know he can and will rein in Washington. President-elect Trump has vowed that his administration will overturn two federal regulations for every new one it proposes. The administrator of EPA will play a vital role in keeping that promise. He must make sure that the agency meets its mission of protecting our environment – ensuring clean water, air, and land – while allowing our economy to grow. Our committee is taking up the nomination of Attorney General Pruitt this week. I look forward to hearing more about his vision for the agency and how he will help get Americans back to work. The EPA has made the last eight years hard for families in Wyoming and across rural America. Today, there is reason to be hopeful. The status quo at the EPA is changing. Republican John Barrasso represents Wyoming in the U.S. Senate. He serves in the Senate as a member of both the Energy and Environment Committees. Follow him on Twitter@Sen.JohnBarrasso.

Gambian President Jammeh declares state of emergency

Jan 17, 2017 - 23:59

BANJUL (Reuters) - Gambian President Yahya Jammeh declared a state of emergency on Tuesday after refusing to hand power to opposition leader Adama Barrow, who won an election last month. State television said the emergency would prevent a power vacuum while the supreme court rules on Jammeh's petition challenging the election result. That suggests Jammeh will stay in power beyond Thursday, when Barrow was due to have been sworn in as president. Regional leaders have threatened to intervene militarily if Jammeh does not step down and on Tuesday a senior Nigerian army source said Nigeria and other West African states were preparing a military force. "I ... hereby declare a state of public emergency throughout the Islamic Republic of Gambia," Jammeh's declaration said. The state of emergency banned "acts of disobedience" and "acts intended to disturb public order". Barrow is not intimidated by the state of emergency, a spokesman told Reuters. He declined to comment on whether the inauguration would proceed on schedule. Jammeh took power in a coup in 1994 as only the second president since Gambia's independence in 1965 and his government gained a reputation for torturing and killing perceived opponents, rights groups say. In 2015, he declared that the country was an Islamic Republic. Pro-democracy activists across Africa welcomed his defeat, and his refusal to step down has provoked an internal crisis as well as a test of mettle for regional leaders. Gambia's top judge on Monday declined to rule on Jammeh's election petition and in a political blow to the president, the ministers of finance, foreign affairs, trade and the environment have resigned, according to ministry sources. The Nigerian source said that defence chiefs of staff of West African countries met on Monday to discuss strategies to remove Jammeh. "Some West African countries will be contributing troops, including Nigeria, for the operation," said the source, adding that the United Nations and African Union had offered support to regional body ECOWAS for the plan. State television said on Monday Finance Minister Abdou Kolley was being replaced by Benjamin Roberts, the minister of tourism. Finance ministry sources said on Tuesday Roberts had also resigned. Ministry sources said other government figures, including Foreign Minister Neneh Macdouall-Gaye, had left the government and the country. The mayor of the capital Banjul has also resigned, according to sources at the city council. Hundreds of Gambians have fled to Senegal, Gambia's only neighbour, fearing for their safety because of the turmoil, and Senegalese authorities have increased security. Barrow is also in Senegal, his aides say. "We are scared. There are soldiers with guns all the time," said Awa Sanneh, 25, from Birkama in Gambia, who was leaving with two children and 24 other family members. Gambia, one of the smallest countries in Africa, relies on tourism and one main crop, peanuts, to fuel its economy.

Fake News: When Leftist Foundations Fund Activism Posing As Journalism

Seton Motley President, Less Government 3:11 PM 01/12/2017

#FakeNews is currently in the news “big league.” Thanks to ridiculous BuzzFeed’s ridiculous release of a 35-page Donald Trump disinformation litany (to which we absolutely will not link). A litany so fake that it was printed under the heading “Disinformation.” But ridiculous BuzzFeed released it anyway. This litany had been floating around Washington, D.C. for months – untouched by DC’s alleged journalists. But DC’s alleged journalists — once BuzzFeed broke the seal – piled in behind them like Japanese subway commuters to further amplify it. This is by no means the only flavor of fake news that exists. Another long-standing-though-less-ballyhooed version is when Leftist foundations fund Leftist activists – who generate “news” that the media then mindlessly parrot, without any mention of the mammoth money behind it. All the while, the media roundly lambastes much tinier right-of-center efforts to tell their story. For instance: You’ve of course heard of the libertarian Koch brothers, because the media have made sure of it. The Kochs donate money to groups to advance free markets and the media goes bananas. But the Koch coin isn’t even close to the real story:

The Seeds of a Potential Assassination

By Dave Hodges

U.S. Park Police and D.C. police Wednesday afternoon investigated the two areas where the weapons were found. I have been waiting for a massive law enforcement response, given the timing and location of the following discoveries. Instead, all we are getting are crickets chirping with regard to the response of federal and local law enforcement. The reason that this is significant because on January 15th, I received a highly credible tip that man was arrested in DC transporting a huge weapons cache in a truck. I have been told by a local official that the event is being covered up from the media and there is no federal involvement to their knowledge. Let’s review the following, of what is known, and evaluate local law enforcement as well as the Feds response to this situations which I believe pose a significant and potential threat to Donald Trump. The Reported Details The finding of weapons’ cache in two separate locations in the DC area, only a quarter of a mile from each other was so serious and concerning that local traffic on Canal Road was stopped during the investigation. But quickly the cover-up was initiated and the findings were quickly swept under the carpet. The Discovery The discovery of weapons was made by a woman who saw a suspicious violin case along a stone wall that runs parallel to a local canal. She stopped and opened the case and found guns. Only a short distance north of the discovery at the canal. Park Police found a cache of multiple weapons and ammunition that had been covered by trash to obscure the presence of the weapons. Where Is the FBI? Please allow me to be clear about something. This is the city where the most contested and most volatile presidential election in American history is coming to a natural conclusion with the inauguration of Donald Trump. Subsequently, with the layers of extra security being brought in to counter what George Soros, Bill Ayers and Michael Moore are going to do at the inauguration, these discoveries should have set off alarm bells all throughout the region. Given the circumstances, the FBI should have taken over the criminal investigation and should have been looking to get to the bottom of these two discoveries. So, please allow me to ask…”Where the hell is the FBI”? Does Comey want something to happen to Trump and the thousands of innocent bystanders? This is just another case where “Comey is at this best”. I sincerely hope Trump prosecutes Comey for his role in the HSBC money laundering when Comey served on the board of directors of HSBC. The Official Response Every attempt to minimize the finding is in play. Please consider the following: “Park Police spokeswoman Sgt. Anna Rose said there were a variety of weapons recovered, including long guns and pistols. The weapons were in buckets and bags, Rose said, although she said she didn’t believe any of them were loaded.” Would someone please tell this law enforcement moron that they found ammunition at the scene? “There’s no indication as to why these weapons were here, when they came to be here or the circumstances surrounding it — that part’s all under investigation,” Rose said. No wonder DC has one of the highest homicide rates, by gun, despite having some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. With morons like this in charge, who can feel safe? Two weapons cache discovered in the city and at the time of the Inauguration and nobody in an official capacity blinks an eye? And no FBI involvement? Welcome to JFK’s Secret Service detail, Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963. What Should Have Happened? Upon stumbling across this seemingly, no-big-deal discovery, I called two law enforcement officials, of some note, and asked them for their reaction. Here is what I was told by a former 27 year veteran of a major police department. He said, word for word the following, “If we were only expecting a visit from the President and these incidences took place under our watch, I would have have had a very well-publicized meeting with the Secret Service, DHS and the FBI as well as state law enforcement. Secretly, we would begin operations to ensure the safety of the President. In this environment which is highly charged with a potential for violence, I would recommend a change of venue so as to throw off any potential attack that would have been planned. Additionally, we would keep watch on the local area with a team of undercover officers, although the Feds would take over the process in all likelihood. We would be going through nearby store videos and traffic cams looking for anything that could be connected to the events as described in DC. If the NSA wanted to, I know from experience they could backtrack any satellite footage of the area over the past several weeks with key image search. I know this, because we have done it before. The DIA as well as Clapper could do very similar things. I am awestruck that the officials are so cavalier about these discoveries. This is a complete failure of law enforcement at every level in DC given the highly charged political atmosphere where an event like this should spark, if anything, an over-reaction, not an underwhelming response.” It is the reaction of law enforcement that concerns me, much more than the event itself. Donald Trump is a marked man and this event strengthens my feelings of concern over his safety. Conclusion The FBI’s reaction, alone, tells us all we need to know about their desire to protect the President from assassination. And the fact that George Soros, Bill Ayers and Michael Moore have threatened the proceedings at this Friday’s inauguration, should have heightened law enforcement’s response. Did you know that Lee Harvey Oswald, an actual member of the CIA as it was discovered he was on the CIA payroll at the time of assassination, went to James Hosty of the FBI and told him of impending trouble for JFK, several days before the assassination? Did you know that Oswald had several meetings with Hosty in the weeks leading to the assassination? This is very similar to what we just observed in DC as history is potentially repeating itself and the Feds are going to let history take its course. Welcome to the Banana Republic, we formerly called the United States of America. And at the end of it all, can the Clinton Foundation be very far removed from these events? All the rest of us can and should do is to pray for Donald Trump’s safety. Trump is in more danger than Lincoln or Kennedy ever were.

Pigeons falling out of the sky in India: Bird-flu continues its explosive pandemic around the globe

The map above shows the explosion across the globe of avian-flu, the yellow square indicate bird only outbreaks, while the red squares indicate where the virus has spread to humans. Humans can be infected with avian and other zoonotic influenza viruses, such as avian influenza virus subtypes A(H5N1), A(H7N9), and A(H9N2) and swine influenza virus subtypes A(H1N1) and (H3N2). Human infections are primarily acquired through direct contact with infected animals or contaminated environments, but do not result in efficient transmission of these viruses between people. There is no evidence that the avian or zoonotic influenza viruses can infect humans through properly cooked food. Avian and other zoonotic influenza infections in humans may cause disease ranging from mild conjunctivitis to severe pneumonia and even death. The majority of human cases of A(H5N1) and A(H7N9) infection have been associated with direct or indirect contact with infected live or dead poultry. WHO. As bird-flu continues its explosive pandemic around the globe I have yet to hear any mention of it on MSM even as new outbreaks are happening continuously on a daily basis. In India nearly a hundred pigeons have died in a far-flung village in Odisha's Kendrapara district, triggering panic in the wake of the bird flu scare gripping the state. A district veterinary official said on 16 January that avian species are dying almost daily along the seaside in Mahakalpada tehsil. Last week, the deaths of chickens was reported in nearby areas. Similarly, a rare breed of sheep is thought to have died from bird-flu. The death of animals and winged species has made people apprehensive as they fear that bird flu has hit the localities in Mahakalpada tehsil, said former Sarpanch, Bijoy Shukla. After death of pigeons was reported, a team of veterinary surgeons has rushed to the village to take stock of the situation. Blood samples have been collected for laboratory test of the samples, Sethy said. After the pathological test, the exact cause of the pigeons' death could be ascertained, however avian-flu is suspected. Also in India, State Animal Animal Husbandry department personnel culled 150 birds found positive with avian influenza infection on Thursday night. "Their samples were sent to Bhopal one week ago and in the meanwhile the samples have tested positive," said Municipal Medical Officer (health) Dr Bhavin Solanki on Friday. He said the birds included guinea fowls and ducks. Birdflu has broken out in the central part of Uganda, a senior ministry of agriculture official said on Saturday. Connie Acayo, the spokesperson of the ministry told Xinhua by telephone that confirmatory test of dead birds on Lutembe beach on the shores of Lake Victoria and in Masaka district showed that the disease had broken out. "It is a very serious disease and the minister of agriculture will be issuing out a statement on Sunday," she said. Uganda is among the countries in sub-Saharan Africa that face a high risk of a bird flu outbreak because it is crisscrossed by several routes for migratory birds, which are carriers of the virus. In Europe Spain reported a case of the highly contagious H5N8 bird flu virus in wild geese in the northern part of the country, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) said on Thursday, citing a report from the Spanish ministry of agriculture. Two infected wild geese were found dead in the Castile and Leon region, the ministry said, adding that it had increased surveillance of poultry farms in the area. The H5N8 strain, which is deadly for poultry but has not been found in humans, has spread across Europe and the Middle East since late last year, leading to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of poultry and the confinement of flocks indoors. Italy also declared a first outbreak of H5N8, detected in a wild duck, on Thursday. Posted by Gary Walton at 1:03 pm

Superbugs now killing more Americans than breast cancer… the scourge of antibiotics continues

Sunday, January 15, 2017 by: David Gutierrez

(NaturalNews) Antibiotic-resistant superbugs are now killing more people than breast cancer, according to a new data analysis by the UK Sepsis Trust. According to the British Department of Health, about 5,000 people die each year from drug-resistant infections. But the UK Sepsis Trust and others have criticized these figures for being based on studies conducted in other countries, many of them with flawed methodology. For the new analysis, the UK Sepsis Trust looked at the Department of Health’s own data to come up with an estimate of 12,000 killed per year by superbugs — more than twice as high as the current estimate. This surpasses the number killed by breast cancer, officially considered one of the United Kingdom’s top killers. (RELATED: Read more news about the challenges of modern medicine at Medicine.news) Global health crisis As the scourge of antibiotic-resistance grows, superbugs will likely continue to overtake other top killers. In 2008, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that a single superbug, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), had begun killing more people than AIDS. Antibiotic resistance is spreading so fast that in 2015, World Health Organization (WHO) head Margaret Chan warned that superbugs might “mean the end of modern medicine as we know it.” “The rise of antibiotic resistance is a global health crisis,” Chan said. “More and more governments recognize (it is) one of the greatest threats to health today.” (RELATED: Learn how to prevent infections and chronic disease at Prevention.news) The United Kingdom’s official superbug death counts are based on studies conducted elsewhere in Europe and in the United States, particularly a 2011 CDC study that applied data from 10 states to the entire country. This study has been widely criticized as untrustworthy. “These were not scientific estimates,” said Dr. Ramanan Laxminarayan of the United Kingdom’s Centre for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy. For the new analysis, the UK Sepsis Trust used three separate statistics from the Department of Health: first, that half of sepsis (“blood poisoning”) cases are caused by E. coli; second, that a third of E. coli infections are drug resistant; and third, that 44,000 people die from sepsis every year. Combining these statistics, the trust calculated that 7,479 people per year are killed just by sepsis from antibiotic-resistant E. coli. Using statistics on the other bacteria most likely to cause sepsis, the trust arrived at a total figure of 11,884 people killed by drug-resistant bacteria per year. This surpasses the 11,433 killed by breast cancer in 2014. Notably, these figures account only for sepsis-related superbug deaths. People killed from other causes — organ failure caused by MRSA, for example — are not included in this estimate. It will probably get much worse According to the most recent CDC estimates, 23,000 people are killed by superbugs each year in the United States, compared with 41,000 killed by breast cancer. If the U.S. superbug figures are as far off as the British figures turned out to be — a factor of two — then superbug deaths likely surpass breast cancer deaths in the United States, as well. In fact, a 2014 report by the British government’s Review on Antimicrobial Resistance concluded that by 2050, outbreaks of just six superbugs — E. coli, MRSA, Klebsiella pneumoniae, tuberculosis, HIV and malaria — will kill 10 million people a year worldwide. That’s more than the deaths expected to be caused by cancer and diabetes, combined. The review concluded that the current number killed each year globally is “only” 700,000. The dramatic increase over the next 35 years is expected to come from the ongoing spread of drug resistance due to overuse of antibiotics in medicine and agriculture. The death estimates account only for people killed directly by the six diseases studied. They do not include people who will die if widespread drug resistance renders antibiotics so ineffective that currently common medical techniques such as surgery, organ transplants and cancer treatment become too dangerous to use.

Shootout at U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo Part of Cartel-Terrorist Attack Plan for Trump Inauguration

Thursday, January 12, 2017 13:09

A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American Consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch. An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. Consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas. The Mexican military responded to the attack, law enforcement sources on both sides of the border confirm insisting that their identities be kept confidential for security reasons, and at least three soldiers were either killed or critically wounded in the ambush. A local newspaper in Tamaulipas reported that 13 people died during a shootout in Nuevo Laredo, referring to the deceased as heavily armed “delinquents” with an arsenal that includes 12 automatic weapons, a rocket launcher, grenade, loads of ammunition and drugs in three vehicles, one of them armored. The deceased have not been identified and Mexican authorities will continue to investigate, the article states, attributing the information to a press release issued by Mexico’s Defense Secretary. Judicial Watch’s law enforcement and intelligence sources say the barrage outside what’s soon to be the new U.S. Consulate is connected to a broad operation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to send President-elect Donald Trump a message by engaging in attacks at border ports. “Cartels usually don’t work with jihadists for fear of having the border shut down,” a veteran federal law enforcement official told Judicial Watch. “But Trump is causing so much disruption in Mexico that they are partnering to send a message as to who is in control. This is as outrageous as a small group of guys crashing planes into U.S. buildings.” Another official who has worked in the region for years said “Trump is causing a huge amount of fear in Mexico throughout all sectors; private, government, business, criminal, police….” Nuevo Laredo is among the border towns that the terrorists and narcotraffickers plan to launch attacks in, according to intelligence gathered by law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and Mexico. Others include Matamoros, Reynosa and Ciudad Juárez. In 2015 Judicial Watch reported that ISIS is operating a camp just west of Ciudad Juárez, around eight miles from El Paso. Sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and Mexican Federal Police inspector revealed that, during a joint operation, they discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation in El Paso that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation. Just last week Judicial Watch reported that a Jihadi-cartel alliance in the Mexican state of Nuevo León is collaborating to carry out attacks in American cities and ports of entry along the southern border. Confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources said that, as part of the plan, militant Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border. An internal Mexican law enforcement report obtained by Judicial Watch confirms that Islamic terrorists have “people along the border, principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.” Cartel informants tell law enforcement contacts that “they are only waiting for the order and the times to carry out a simultaneous attack in the different ports of entry or cities of the United States of America.” The area where this week’s shootout originated is a 5.6-acre parcel just south of downtown Nuevo Laredo on Paseo Colon. The State Department predicts that by September the new U.S. Consulate compound, which broke ground in mid-2015 and will cost $155 million, should be completed. It will have multiple buildings, including an office structure, U.S. Marine Security Guard residence, support annex and other facilities for the consulate community. The primary function of consulates is helping and protecting Americans abroad. The post Shootout at U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo Part of Cartel-Terrorist Attack Plan for Trump Inauguration appeared first on Judicial Watch.

Talk radio hosts and bloggers could be given greater access to official White House press briefings once the Trump administration takes office, under a highly irregular proposal being floated that may also remove briefings from the West Wing. Trump’s pick for White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said on Sunday that due to “off the chart” interest in the new administration, the president-elect was considering moving briefings from the James S Brady press briefing room, which has been used by presidents to address the media since 1970, to a venue with a greater capacity. A report published by Esquire magazine on Saturday indicated the venue could be inside the Old Executive Office Building, just west of the White House. “I know change is difficult sometimes,” Spicer told Fox News. “But sometimes change can actually be better.” Spicer argued the proposal would mean “you can involve more people, be more transparent, have more accessibility”. He suggested that this would mean outlets that are not traditionally part of the White House press corps would be able to ask questions during presidential press briefings. “There’s a lot of talk radio and bloggers and people that can’t fit in right now and maybe don’t have a permanency because they’re not part of the Washington elite media,” Spicer said, “but to allow them an opportunity to ask the press secretary or the president a question is a positive thing. It’s more democratic.” Around 200 journalists make up the White House press corps. The Brady press briefing room holds 49 permanent seats for major media organisations, which are granted space by the White House Correspondent Association (WHCA). The Guardian is among those outlets allocated a space. White House briefings are open any journalist that seeks access and passes security clearance, but the president more typically takes questions from major news organisations with an allocated seat. It remains unclear how the proposal would be implemented, but it is likely to be interpreted as a hostile rebuke to conventional media outlets around the country. Jeff Mason, the WHCA president and Reuters White House correspondent, said he had a “constructive”, nearly two-hour meeting with Spicer on Sunday. Mason “emphasized the importance of the White House press briefing room” and its proximity to West Wing officials. “I made clear that the WHCA would view it as unacceptable if the incoming administration sought to move White House reporters out of the press work space behind the press briefing room,” Mason said in a statement. “Access in the West Wing to senior administration officials, including the press secretary, is critical to transparency and to journalists’ ability to do their jobs.” Spicer agreed to discuss any changes to the current system with the WHCA, Mason said. During a chaotic press conference at Trump Tower on Wednesday, the first the businessman has held since July 2016, hundreds of journalists crammed into a small pen as Trump frequently lambasted certain media organisations and occasionally individual reporters. Trump was incensed by reports on a leaked and unsubstantiated dossier, which alleged frequent contacts between his campaign team and Russian authorities, and suggested the Kremlin held compromising material that could be used to blackmail Trump. Trump was also asked by a reporter at Breitbart News what his views were on media ethics and “fake news”, to which he replied: “Some of the media outlets that I deal with are fake news more so than anybody. I could name them, but I won’t bother. You have a few sitting right in front of us. “They’re very, very dishonest people, but I think it’s just something we’re going to have to live with. I guess the advantage I have is that I can speak back.” According to the Associated Press, Breitbart News, branded by critics as a racist, far-right news site, was the only media organisation to have a reserved seat in the front row for the conference. Steve Bannon, Trump’s incoming chief strategist and senior counselor, previously served as the site’s executive chairman. The president-elect’s campaign drew consistent support from numerous conservative talk radio hosts and internet conspiracy theory sites, for instance Alex Jones’s InfoWars. During the campaign, Trump took the unprecedented step of appearing on Jones’s site, known as America’s foremost conservative conspiracy theory outlet. Jones has previously dismissed the Sandy Hook massacre, in which 20 elementary school students and six school staff were murdered, as “completely fake”, and has branded the September 11 terror attacks an “inside job”. Trump was interviewed for around 30 minutes by Jones in December 2015, and later called Jones a “nice guy”. Jones claimed in November that Trump called him to thank him for his support after winning the presidential election. This story was changed on 16 January 2016, to better describe the rules governing White House press access. The headline and standfirst was also altered.

The 5 Stages Of The Awakening. Every aspect of your life is monitored, regulated, taxed and controlled, not for your betterment, but for betterment of others

January 16, 2017

One of the greatest challenges to becoming Totally Free is to be able to think independently from everyone else. You know instinctively that no one cares about you, as much as you care about yourself. Yet we constantly listen to others about what is best for us, instead of thinking about what is best for us. That is because we live in a world where everyone tells you what to think, but no one tells you how to think. We are blasted everyday with advertising, financial sales pitches, political media propaganda, religious dictates and more and more social pressure to conform. Most of our lives we don’t make any real decisions we kind of just fall into a routine. You see when you do not really think, you leave your mind open to those who do think. The real and most often unnoticed danger is a class of predators manipulating societies for their own selfish benefits. If you go along to get along and not think outside of the box, you risk being caught in the undertow of a doomed society or worse. “In our dreams, people yield themselves with perfect docility to our molding hands. The present education conventions of intellectual and character education, fade from their minds and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive folk. We shall not try to make these people, or any of their children, into philosophers, or men of science. We have not to raise up from them authors, educators, poets or men of letters. We shall not search for great artists, painters, musicians nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statesmen — of whom we have an ample supply. The task is simple. We will organize children and teach them in a perfect way the things their fathers and mothers are doing in an imperfect way.” – John D Rockefeller There is a lot of money and power derived off of having a “sucker born everyday.” Our Elite molds societies by educating the people just enough to run the machine, but never enough to ask if this is the best machine for us. Think about it, our controlled school systems teach sex, drugs and multiculturalism in third and fourth grades and not how to even balance a checkbook by high school. The Elite’s system wants utterly dependent people to control for power and profit. They do not want fully aware people, who can see through mainstream media lies, Wall St Ponzi schemes, or Federal abuses. They certainly do not want people educating others to our common plight of illusion. Your thoughts are not your own. I love asking thoroughly indoctrinated people, “do your ideas serve to free you or simply to make you serve?” I then following up with, “who put those ideas there?” I always get two answers back, the first is “uh….” with eyes rolling into their head. The second is the programmed ego self defense mechanism of “I did.” It is sad to see people lie in general, but to see people lie to themselves is absolutely heart breaking. If you ever wonder why most Americans are broke, depressed and lifeless, look no further than whose thoughts they are thinking. If they are listening to the Elite’s financial CONmen, they are constantly stripped of their wealth through a myriad of schemes. If they are listening to the Elite’s MSM, they are depressed because the national problems are too big and the experts say that there is no hope or worse they say hope is coming… someday. If they are listening to the Elite’s medical community, they are hooked on psychotropic drugs and will never get their fire back by tackling their life’s challenges. “Competition is a sin.” John D. Rockefeller The Elite give us the illusion of freedom but control all of the choices. The Elite give us the choice of 500 cable stations, yet the same message comes from all of the channels. They give us aisles and aisles of food, yet 90% of it is just corn and soy byproducts. They give us the choice of hundreds of political candidates, yet nothing changes because both sides are bought and paid for by the Elite. They give you the choice of investments of stocks, bonds, and real estate but when this all goes down, you will see that it is all apart of the same illusion of the dollar. This of course is controlled by the Elite. If you do not think independently for yourself, you cannot help but to be controlled, whether you know it or not. Every aspect of your life is monitored, regulated, taxed and controlled, not for your betterment, but for betterment of others. To do most high paying jobs requires a certification or a license. Most “assets” you have or own out right are not your own. (Try not paying your property taxes on a home you own out right and I will show you the real owner is.) All of your communications are monitored and recorded. Now the Federal government wants these records to be kept indefinitely. Think you own your 401k? Try getting your money out. You want to do anything to your home? You better get permission from the homeowner association or the local zoning board. All of these examples, plus many, many more have nothing to do with making your life better. They exist to create power, profit and a parasitic life for another. “Until they became conscious they will never rebel and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” — George Orwell (1984) Now before you crawl into the fetal position and start sucking your thumb after realizing that you possibly are a slave, don’t worry. There is a way out. Your freedom is based off of the simple principal of “When you are aware, you can prepare.” I believe that when you see the big picture and understand how you are manipulated, finding the best path for you becomes simple. You cannot become aware unless you rebel against everything that you are now. It starts with putting your foot down and saying, “no more!” You must commit to yourself that you will no longer play the fool for someone else. To do that start by doing what is best for you and the ones you love. You will search for truth wherever it is and let that search be your guided light. That simple little rebellion of your mind is just the spark for a much greater fire of enlightenment. You will be reborn a man that is totally aware, completely free and fully alive. I have identified 5 Stages of the Awakening Process that mirror Elizabeth Kubler Ross’s Five Steps of Grief . The reason why they mirror is because it is literally your old self dying. Your body will physically and mentally react as if there was a real death in your life. We identify ourselves by what we do, what we wear, and what we drive. When you are awake, all of that will matter no more. You will transcend the current consumer order and be fully prepared for the new paradigm. I feel it is incredibly helpful to understand this process to not only identify where you are, but where you should be going. I cannot stress to you how important and necessary this process is. If you do not start thinking for yourself, you will be without the skills necessary to survive in a post-dollar world. 1. Denial- In this stage you dismiss anything that goes counter to conventional wisdom as crazy talk or conspiracy theory. This is really a self defense mechanism the brain uses to protect the ego. No one likes to admit when they are wrong, much less admit when they have been fooled. So it is infinitely easier to deny a truth, rather than to embrace it. It is easier to mock, than to debate. It is easier to hide under the sheets and pretend that there is not a monster in the room. This is where most of our society is stuck right now. They believe that whatever the “authorities” tell them is the truth. They go along with the crowd in fear of being looked upon as strange or crazy. In my experience, denial comes in two forms. The first is the most common and least dangerous form of denial. It is just not wanting to know the truth that might upset their happy little life. This innocent denial of the “ignorance is bliss” mentality, is held by so many Americans who think that things are going “swell” for them, so why ruin it with the truth. There was a woman who I was working with that shut down on me when confronted with the truth. She literally said to me, “I don’t want to know that 9/11 was an inside job because that reality is too scary for me.” Another person said, “that it would be like finding out his father was gay.” (“Not that there is anything wrong with that…” quoted from the very funny social engineer Jerry Seinfeld.) This form of denial is the easiest to overcome because when things go wrong in their perfect little world, they will have no more excuse not to look for the reason of why their world fell apart. There is no more bliss for them to remain ignorant. This economic depression and political failures of both Bush and Obama have already shook a great many out of this denial. The second kind of denial is one that is much more pernicious. I view it as guilty denial. This is the denial of people who actually are benefiting off of the illusion of our paradigm. This comes from business owners, government employees or others whose livelihood is derived off of the current debt paradigm. These people actively fight the truth through disinformation or saying, “they can’t keep that a secret” or that is “just a crazy conspiracy.” They would rather create plausible deniability to distance themselves from the reality of their actions/inactions. Their aggressive defense of the illusion shows me that they know what they are doing is wrong. They are too afraid to live outside of this paradigm, so it is better to try to hold it together despite its human costs. People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now. Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House. Are you ready to turn back the clocks to the 1800s for up to three years. 2. Anger When you start to see that you were fooled, you react violently for being taken for a fool and want to lash out. The Freedom Movement has a lot of this in it currently with talk of “just shooting the bastards.” This action is ineffectual in bringing about positive change for the Freedom Movement. (Those that have proposed this violence to me, I am sure were working for the government trying to find some sucker to frame.) Anger is a very natural reaction and is one that you must go through rather than suppress. Finding out how the world really works is a kin to finding out your significant other has been cheating on you. You may have remained faithful to what this country was about while atrocities were committed behind your back. Anger is just covering up for the fact that you are really hurt for being taken advantage of. This stage is often the shortest, but is also the one where the most energy is expelled. In my anger stage, I redirected my anger to fuel an intense amount of research into making sure I was never fooled again. It eventually lead to the creation of the this website. 3. Bargaining After you calm down, you reach out to anyone who will listen to tell them what is really going on. This is the most annoying stage of the awakening process. (Remember you are reaching for people who are in stage 1 of Denial.) You ruin Christmas parties telling people about WTC7 or kids basketball games talking about the Federal Reserve. By reaching out and sharing, you are not really trying to awaken people, you are really looking for help. By reaching out, you are seeking guidance or structure in your search for truth. You know that there is something wrong. You know that you cannot go back to ignorance. Without clarity, you cannot go forward. This naturally leads to the next stage of depression. 4. Depression Now that you have reached out to everyone and nothing seems to happen, depression sinks in. You start saying “it is too big” or “what could I do about it.” The worst kind of depression that permeates the Freedom Movement is the arrogant attitude of “I know it all” or “screw everyone, I don’t care.” This is the most painful stage and the hardest to get out of. Human happiness comes from progress and yet progress in this journey seems to suck you further into a hole. Unfortunately there is no way around this, yet it is necessary to go through it. “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” Frank Herbert 5. Acceptance At the point where you now become comfortable with the oncoming reality and make active, positive steps to prepare for it. This process of making wise choices for yourself and not others, will yield massive positive personal results. These positive results will reinforce your actions and bring about more positive change in your life. People will start to notice the light in your eyes as confidence returns. They will now ask what happened to you and those that once did not want to hear the truth, will be ready to listen. This is ultimately where we need to get to both personally and as a movement. “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.” -Henry David Thoreau I really feel that the reason I have been so successful at waking people up is that I do not try to scare and depress them. (Trust me, I can write doom and gloom with the best of them.) I do try to motivate, encourage and enlighten people in order to take that first step into their highest self. This journey is the most important one they will ever take and is your only hope to ever becoming what you were meant to be free and independent.

Trump Conducts Sting Operation on US Intelligence Services

January 16, 2017 By News Line 21st Century Wire says…

Trump claims that after suspicions that US Intelligence services were leaking information from classified meetings he was having with them, that he conducted his own sting operation to prove this was happening. “I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press. First of all, it’s illegal. These are classified and certified meetings and reports,” Trump said during a press conference held at Trump Tower. Geoff Earle Daily Mail President-elect Donald Trump, after growing suspicious that intelligence officials were leaking news about their classified briefings with him, says he conducted a sting operation to try to prove top spies were behind the leaks. Trump revealed the extraordinary scheme to try to entrap the senior spies in a furious press conference where he suggested the intelligence community had been behind salacious and totally unproven allegations against him. ‘I think it’s pretty sad when intelligence reports get leaked out to the press. First of all, it’s illegal. These are classified and certified meetings and reports,’ Trump said during a press conference at Trump Tower – his first since getting elected. Then he revealed the details of the stealthy sting he says he conducted on the nation’s senior spooks. ‘I’ll tell you what does happen. I have many meetings with intelligence. And every time I meet, people are reading about it,’ Trump complained, possibly referencing reports on his classified briefings, which he has chosen not to receive daily. ‘Somebody’s leaking them out,’ Trump said, after inveighing against leaks generally. ‘So I said, “Maybe it’s my office. Maybe my office.” Because I’ve got a lot of people … Maybe it’s them?’ ‘What I did, is I said I won’t tell anyone. I’m going to have a meeting, and I won’t tell anybody about my meeting with intelligence,’ Trump continued. He even shielded one of his closest aides from word of the meeting. ‘Nobody knew – not even Rhona, my executive assistant for years. She didn’t know – I didn’t tell her. Nobody knew,’ Trump continued – drawing laughter from collected family members and staff. Having set the trap, Trump says the word leaked anyway. ‘The meeting was held. They left, and immediately the word got out that I had a meeting. So, I don’t want that. It’s very unfair to the country…

The Trump Dossier Puts the Deep State in Deep Doo-Doo

By Clarice Feldman January 15, 2017

Mr. Garfinkle of Garfinkle’s New Method Hebrew School in Milwaukee used to frequently echo King Solomon’s admonition; “There’s nothing new under the sun.” I was reminded of that this week when the rapidly unfolding “scandal” of Trump’s purported dealings with Russia hit the news. It has more than a few similarities with the Dan Rather faked-up story of GW Bush’s National Guard service where an anonymous, never-found source supposedly gave Bill Burkett a demonstrably fake report and Dan Rather ran with it. This time a Bush (Jeb) is involved but as an instigator of the story, not a victim. John McCain acts as the intermediary passing the junk on to the Intelligence Community, which makes sure it is published. If you’re confused about it, let me put it in the context of the most reliable information I’ve been able to put together, noting that I think the story is likely to become even more clear over the next few days. As you will see, the dossier is so ridiculous, if anyone in the Intelligence Community fell for it, he’s too stupid to allow in place, and if no one did but they still played a role in publicizing it, everyone involved needs to be fired A. Digging Up Dirt on Opponents In September of 2015 someone -- now revealed as a Jeb Bush Super PAC donor -- paid Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C. outfit, to compile a dossier of dirt on Donald Trump. Fusion engaged Christopher Steele, a former MI-6 agent in London, to do the job. While early accounts of the story refer to him as a “respected source”, he has a history of dumpster diving for Democrats. Kimberley Strassel at the Wall Street Journal has been reporting on his work for some time and explains why he keeps getting hired: “to gin up the ugliest, most scurrilous claims, and then trust the click-hungry media to disseminate them. No matter how false the allegations, the subject of the attack is required to respond, wasting precious time and losing credibility.” She warns this will be the left’s game: But it says something about the brass-knuckle approach of the left that it would go so far as to write a dossier suggesting that Mr. Trump is a Manchurian candidate -- and then to foist that report into the hands of intelligence officials. [snip] So the left will increasingly rely on campaigns of delegitimization designed to force opponents onto a back foot, push them off task, or even bully them out of the public arena. In the absence of a winning policy argument, this is, in their minds, the best they’ve got . Republicans had better be ready for it. At about the time Trump won the nomination, funds from the Bush donors were cut off. Whether this was because the report was so shoddy or the effort so unavailing isn’t clear. At that point supporters of Hillary Clinton became involved in financing the search. Steele hadn’t been in Russia for decades and as a former British spy could not have done the work himself. So, as the account in the New York Times continues, “he hired native Russian speakers to call informants inside Russia and made surreptitious contact with his own connections in the country as well.” Beginning in June and until December Steele delivered his findings -- a series of short memos -- to GPS. Although post-election no one was paying, Steele continued on this muckraking operation, The memos suggested that the Russians were trying to influence Trump and stated that one of Trump’s lawyers, Michael Cohen, had met with a Russian official in Prague. (A claim Cohen has credibly rebutted.) Word of the dossier made it to the FBI via Senator John McCain, a man with an apparently insatiable desire to betray. McCain, who heard about the dossier from a former diplomatic colleague of Tony Blair (Sir Andrew Wood), dispatched someone (apparently former State Department official David J. Kramer) to London to pick it up, then handed it off to the FBI. From sources as yet unknown, news of the Steele report made it to journalists who investigated and finding no verification after investigating refused to print it. The FBI, tried to get permission to tap into a server in the Trump Tower, which was denied, then in a strangely odd act tried twice to get a warrant from FISA to tap into it. Whether this was in response to the dossier, I do not know. Andrew McCarthy writes in National Review Online: To summarize, it appears there were no grounds for a criminal investigation of banking violations against Trump. Presumably based on the fact that the bank or banks at issue were Russian, the Justice Department and the FBI decided to continue investigating on national-security grounds. A FISA application in which Trump was “named” was rejected by the FISA court as overbroad, notwithstanding that the FISA court usually looks kindly on government surveillance requests. A second, more narrow application, apparently not naming Trump, may have been granted five months later; the best the media can say about it, however, is that the server on which the application centers is “possibly” related to the Trump campaign’s “alleged” links to two Russian banks -- under circumstances in which the FBI has previously found no “nefarious purpose” in some (undescribed) connection between Trump Tower and at least one Russian bank (whose connection to Putin’s regime is not described). That is tissue-thin indeed. It’s a good example of why investigations properly proceed in secret and are not publicly announced unless and until the government is ready to put its money where its mouth is by charging someone. It’s a good example of why FISA surveillance is done in secret and its results are virtually never publicized -- the problem is not just the possibility of tipping off the hostile foreign power; there is also the potential of tainting U.S. persons who may have done nothing wrong. While it’s too early to say for sure, it may also be an example of what I thought would never actually happen: the government pretextually using its national-security authority to continue a criminal investigation after determining it lacked evidence of crimes. The second thrust of the Steele “investigative” report suggested Trump had engaged in some scatological conduct while in Russia, hiring prostitutes to urinate on the bed the Obamas had used there. These claims were not only unverifiable, they were ludicrous as well, as was the Intelligence Community’s justification for giving them one second’s worth of credence. As Iowahawk tweeted: “Unconfirmed Denial of Unsourced Blockbuster Allegations Raises Questions, According To Insiders Who Requested Anonymity.” At American Digest, Gerard Vanderleun explains precisely why: 1) An international business man who has spent decades in the rough and tumble world of real estate development and skyscraper construction and may be presumed to have some sophistication when it comes to wheeling and dealing with governments of all sorts throughout the world travels to 2) Moscow. Not Moscow, Idaho, but Moscow in Russia. That would be Moscow the capital of one of the most paranoid and intrusive governments in the world (Both now and for the 19th and 20th centuries). It is a society and a government with a long history of... 3) Secret police and the clandestine surveillance of its own citizens and visitors to the extent that the US was digging bugs out of the walls of its own embassy in Moscow for decades. When he gets to Moscow he stays at... 4) The Moscow Ritz-Carlton in the “Presidential Suite.” Since such accommodations are typically only taken by the filthy rich and/or representatives of foreign governments such as, say, presidents. And then this sophisticated and reasonably intelligent billionaire real estate developer... 5) Assumes that such a suite in such a capitol city of such a government has no surveillance equipment at all installed in its rooms, bathrooms, closets, and -- most importantly -- bedrooms. He then asks the hotel staff to show him... 6) The bed in which Barack Obama and his wife slept in when they were in this same “Presidential Suite.” Upon being shown the bed our businessman then... 7) Contacts two high-dollar Russian hookers (who would never, ever, have anything to do with the KGB or other intelligence organs of Russia) and instructs them to.... Wait for it.... 8) Urinate on said bed in order to give said businessman some odd sort of thrill and... 9) Said businessman remains utterly positive no agency of the Russian state is running cameras and microphones from every possible angle in the master bedroom in a “Presidential Suite” in a top hotel in the capital of Russia and... 10) The two damp hookers will never, ever, reveal a word about their golden shower in the Ritz Carleton’s “Presidential Suite.” While I know that millions of morons are nodding like the drinking bird over the glass in their deep and abiding belief in this overflowing crock, I still find it hard to believe that there are smart people out there that really are this stupid. But of course they are not that stupid, not the smart ones. Instead they know this is a crock and yet they find they must drink from it lest their #NeverTrump fantasy world dissolve. Sad. Their repetitive manic desperation now has foam flecking their lips and jowls as they dive down deep, and not for the last time, into this fuming septic tank of their own political sewage. Without even a snorkel. If they ever get out of the tank they will need a long, long golden shower B. The Intelligence Community Peddles the Dirt (then feigns dismay that it makes its way into the press). Among the morons apparently “drinking this up” besides John McCain were high officials in the Intelligence Community, which passed the rumors on to the president and key congressional staff, although -- despite conflicting reports about this -- apparently never shared it with president-elect Trump. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claimed to have been “dismayed” that this leaked out after having passed it on. He claimed as well that the Intelligence Community “hadn’t made any judgment on whether the claims within the document were reliable” As my online friend Cecil Turner observes: “Former U.S. intelligence officials described the inclusion of the summary -- drawn from 'opposition research' done by a political research firm -- as highly unusual. "Assuming, of course, that it is. The problem with this sort of thing is that it's on the borderline between unknown and unknowable. Every character involved is either anonymous or has a name that sounds pseudonymous, and the sources are professional liars. "Roll eyes, wait for actual evidence. The fact that it leaked strongly suggests there is none.” CNN, however, lapped it up, informed its readers of the existence of scandalous reports on Trump, and BuzzFeed, a clickbait site owned in part by NBC, then published the dossier, a portion of which, it seems, was provided by infonerd bulletin board 4 Chan. Asked why it had published an account of this nonsense which other news agencies had refused to print because it was completely unverifiable, CNN blamed BuzzFeed, noting it had not released the details, presumably on the assumption that readers whose curiosity had been piqued by the news wouldn’t want details. Steele has gone to ground ostensibly because he fears Russian reprisals, but I think it’s because he wants to avoid answering questions about what are obviously fabrications to satisfy political interests who paid for this shoddy product. As John Bolton commented: Kassam asked if Bolton had ever heard of the man revealed as the creator of the dossier, former British MI6 officer Christopher Steele. “Could it be the case that somebody has just paid this guy to write these things, so this leak came out?” Kassam asked. “Well, actually, that thought occurred to me because it’s so bad. I haven’t found anybody, including friends who are experienced in both diplomacy and military and intelligence affairs, who haven’t just laughed at most of it,” Bolton replied. “It’s filled with anonymous sources, single-source information and whatnot. If I were a corporate customer, and I wanted, in effect, a private investigator -- I think that’s what this firm basically is -- and I got something back like this, I would refuse to pay. You or I could sit down at a computer right now and type out these 35 pages, just let our imaginations run wild, and if somebody would pay for it, I suppose it’s nice work if you can get it,” he said. c. Is it Just IC Incompetence or is the Deep State Deliberately Undermining Faith in Trump and Aiding a Russian Disinformation Campaign? Glenn Greenwald (hardly a Trump fan) thinks it’s more, and on examination of the Intelligence Community’s handling of this tripe, it’s hard to disagree with him. He points out the unprecedented support for Hillary Clinton in this “deep state,” and takes issue with their advancing the Steele memos ...the Deep State unleashed its tawdriest and most aggressive assault yet on Trump: vesting credibility in and then causing the public disclosure of a completely unvetted and unverified document, compiled by a paid, anonymous operative while he was working for both GOP and Democratic opponents of Trump, accusing Trump of a wide range of crimes, corrupt acts, and salacious private conduct. The reaction to all of this illustrates that while the Trump presidency poses grave dangers, so, too, do those who are increasingly unhinged in their flailing, slapdash, and destructive attempts to undermine it. [snip] Once CNN strongly hinted at these allegations, it left it to the public imagination to conjure up the dirt Russia allegedly had to blackmail and control Trump. By publishing these accusations, BuzzFeed ended that speculation. More importantly, it allowed everyone to see how dubious this document is, one the CIA and CNN had elevated into some sort of grave national security threat. ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER it was published, the farcical nature of the “dossier” manifested. Not only was its author anonymous, but he was paid by Democrats (and, before that, by Trump’s GOP adversaries) to dig up dirt on Trump. Worse, he himself cited no evidence of any kind but instead relied on a string of other anonymous people in Russia he claims told him these things. Worse still, the document was filled with amateur errors. David Goldman, who did support Trump, was more succinct: “Warning the intelligence communities about salacious and politically motivated leaks: the president-elect threatened to drag their shenanigans into the daylight. No one has ever done that to the spooks before. I'm lovin' it.” In any event, McCain's much-touted hearings on Russian interference with the election should prove to be a million laughs. He obviously believed this nonsense was credible enough to seek it out and pass it on, so I hardly imagine he’s in a position to make credible calls on what the hearings involving these now discredited documents reveal or on the wisdom and good faith of the officials involved in leaking them.

EUROPE ON TERROR ALERT: Police seize jihadi weapons ‘capable of downing AIRCRAFT’

TERRORISTS in Europe are now capable of “bringing down aircraft”, Spanish police warned as they revealed the details of a huge weapons seizure this week.

By Joey Millar PUBLISHED: 05:29, Mon, Jan 16, 2017 | UPDATED: 07:28, Mon, Jan 16, 2017

Anti-terror investigators confiscated 12,000 weapons this week - just before they were sold to terrorists by a Spanish gang, who have now been arrested. Police said the weapon trafficking network was terrifying in its size and capability - which now includes anti-aircraft weaponry. The country’s Interior Minister said “several anti-aircraft guns capable of bringing down aircraft” were seized on Thursday, along with thousands of rifles. The entire arsenal was worth nearly £9 million. Police also seized more than £70,000 in cash. The Interior Minister said: “Among the innumerable seized pieces are complete percussion mechanisms, recoil springs, retaining parts, guns, bolts, cylinders, frames, firing mechanisms and locking systems, all intended for the rehabilitation of weapons. “For this, they had a sophisticated and complete workshop for the repair and in its case reactivation of the firearms.” Three of those arrested are being held in custody. Two have been released under the provision they do not leave the country. They have had their passports seized. Police said the group were made up of four men and one woman, all of whom were Spanish. They were arrested in the north Spanish towns of Olot, Liendo, Galdacano and Guecho, where the workshop was discovered. Police forces from Barcelona, Valencia and Santander were also involved in the operation. Police said the group was “very active” and heavily involved with selling weapons to terrorist groups. The five suspects legally bought unused weapons of war, repaired them before selling them on to terror cells or organised crime groups. The group were caught during a police operation supporters by Europol, the continent-wide crime agency. This particular operation was set up in the wake of a terror attack at a Jewish museum in Brussels in May 2014.

In our hedonistic age, should we really let our culture’s storytellers have access to our children?

January 13, 2017 (TheBridgehead) -- I was asked recently by a conservative journalist what my opinion on some television show’s decision to include storylines about abortion was—all, of course, being sympathetic, if not enthusiastic. I’d never watched the show (or even heard of it), so I couldn’t supply any insight. But what I do find interesting is the way conservatives and Christians often interact with the television and film industry. For some reason, we seem to believe that we can consume the creations of post-modernists, relativists, and hedonists without imbibing any of those worldviews—and without getting indigestion. Leave aside for one moment the most prominent problems pervasive within the entertainment industry: Blasphemy, sexually explicit and pseudo-pornographic material, the promotion of anti-Christian views, the consistent mocking of Christianity, and the macabre celebration of horror and darkness. What I rarely see mentioned is that for the most part, this is all we can reasonably expect from the entertainment industry. It’s just a story, Christians will say when defending some empty, time-wasting TV show they’ve decided to watch. But that is not the case. There is no such thing as “just a story.” Stories have storytellers. If we want to know what the story is telling us, we simply have to look at what the storyteller wants to tell us. Storytellers come with their own worldviews, biases, and beliefs. These beliefs will come through in the stories they tell—especially in the extraordinarily powerful mediums of film and television—whether they are attempting propaganda intentionally or not. Stories are perhaps one of the most powerful methods of creating emotional responses and transmitting beliefs. The question posed to me by the journalist, concerning how parents should regulate the consumption of such stories by their children, has quite a simple answer. It is the answer to this question: Do you want to let that storyteller tell his or her stories to your children? Many church-going parents allow their children to be raised on a diet of film, television, and music created by storytellers who despise Christianity and create narratives that run directly in opposition to it. They foment rebellion and celebrate lifestyles that run directly contrary to biblical beliefs—but often do so in tenderly-rendered tales that have more power to persuade than a dozen philosophical treatises or political speeches. Friends and Will & Grace did more for the mainstreaming of gay marriage than any academic ever did. Meanwhile, Christians in film and television are generally portrayed as stupid, mean, closeminded, and bumbling. Mockery is a powerful tool. Compare this to the literature children used to be raised on and the storytellers parents used to invite into their homes, books like the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the chronicles of the March family by Louisa May Alcott, the tales of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, and so many others. These books celebrate what I call the high drama of ordinary living, and this has been one of the key secrets to the longevity of their popularity. Long after the frontier days passed into history, more than a century after the American Civil War, and many decades since the occupants of Prince Edward Island lived like Anne and her friends, the stories of friendship, puppy love, courtship, and the tiny trials and tragedies that make up childhood arch over the years to remain as real today as they were then. Children still relate to Laura Ingalls and Jo March and Anne Shirley because their childhoods, despite sometimes extraordinary circumstances, were innocent and beautiful. Even stories that focused on adventure contained familiar elements that everyone could relate with to ground them. Johan Wyss’s wonderful book The Swiss Family Robinson emphasized the essential nature of family while the parents and their children created a new life for themselves on a tropical island where they’d been shipwrecked. J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogy combined the high drama of biblically-proportioned battles and a fantastical Middle Earth with the utterly ordinary: thorough and detailed landscape descriptions as his hobbits make their journey, the taste of beer, the satiation of a long hunger with sumptuously described meals, and even a poem describing the loveliness of hot water after a long day’s trek: Sing hey! For the bath at close of day That washes the weary mud away! A loon is he that will not sing; O! Water Hot is a noble thing! O! Sweet is the sound of falling rain, And the brook that leaps from hill to plain; But better than rain or rippling streams Is Water Hot that smokes and steams. O! Water cold we may pour at need Down a thirsty throat and be glad indeed; But better is Beer, if drink we lack, And Water Hot poured down the back. O! Water is fair that leaps on high In a fountain white beneath the sky; But never did fountain sound so sweet As splashing Hot Water with my feet! These master storytellers created a canon of literature that is often, unfortunately, only known to the rising generation through their retellings by other storytellers of distinctly different worldviews, utilizing television and film instead of the written word. I’m not trying to conflate or compare cinematography to literature—the art forms are too fundamentally different—but something essential is lost in translation, which is why films that seek to dramatize beloved books are nearly always fiercely controversial and generally disappointing to the fans of the written works. Several years back, I had a few email exchanges with J.R.R. Tolkien’s grandson, the poet Michael Tolkien, and I asked him if he felt his grandfather’s work was unappreciated. “I think you are right to use the world ‘unappreciated,’” Tolkien replied. “Is ‘Tolkien’ now to the general public the generator of a series of films or a distinguished writing of superbly crafted fantasy with universal implications and dimensions?” When post-modern artists create their own interpretations of great literature, the stories are often robbed of much of the beauty that made them so beloved in the first place. Until the Sexual Revolution, much of the literary canon was marked by the assumption of Judeo-Christian values. Not that it was all explicitly Christian literature, but the context that produced it was a Judeo-Christian culture, and thus certain values were simply taken for granted. This fact has proven endlessly disturbing to the rootless post-modernists who can find no fictional heroes and role models in the literary canon and thus, as I detailed in a column earlier this week, they have gone to work revising and reinterpreting until they can conjure up lurid lesbian liaisons in L.M. Montgomery’s tales, something that anyone with the vaguest knowledge of Montgomery’s biography must find laughable. She was a pastor’s wife—one can actually visit her home and church in Leeksdale, Ontario, and sit in her spot in the pews, play her old organ, sit where she wrote the Anne books, and visit the glorious and fiery auburn autumn inspiration for Rainbow Valley. It is the literary vandalism of these pagan profs that made me abandon my English minor in university: I was tired of seeing the wonderful books I’d grown up reading subjected to absurd and stupid reinterpretations. The question parents must answer when they are considering the question of today’s entertainment industry is whether they want to permit our culture’s current storytellers to have access to their children. What is the worldview of these storytellers? What do they want to impart in their stories? Is any of it good, or consistent with the Christian worldview? Do these storytellers have any values at all, or do their stories promote relativism at best and overt wickedness at worst? And this doesn’t even approach the fact that exposure to the medium of film and television at an early age often has the potential to rob children of the ability to create their own imagination and discover early the worlds contained between the two covers of a book. It’s important to note that many of Hollywood’s storytellers do not see blasphemy, sexually explicit material, and profanity as incidental to their storytelling—they see it as essential to the integrity (no irony intended) of their work. This is evidenced by the fact that most of the major film studios, at the behest of the movie directors, have worked hard to destroy any attempt to apply family-friendly filters to their films. CleanFlicks was one attempt to offer edited movies, and that company was sued out of existence. VidAngel, the newest company to try offer filtering services, was recently forced to pull down their entire film library as the result of a federal court order. The Hollywood storytellers want people to consume their stories replete with blasphemy, swearing, and pseudo-pornographic material—and will shut down any attempt at editing or what they call “censorship.” Not even greed can explain their motives here—film critic and cultural commentator Michael Medved has spilled gallons of ink highlighting the fact that films devoid of swearing and sexual material generally make a lot more cash than the standard crude fare offered by most studios. The simple fact is that they see the components of cursing, crudeness, and carnality as a vital part of the stories they wish to tell. The good news is that parents do not have to invite these smut-peddlers and storytellers into their homes. The greatest works of literature ever produced are cheaper and more widely available than at any other time in human history. Skilled storytellers of the highest calibre simply await an introduction. A host of men and women who defined eras and captivated entire generations with the tales and the characters they conjured up in their imaginations and breathed into life with their pens stand ready to usher a new generation on fantastic journeys of wonder, whimsy and imagination, needing only a simple invitation. Their stories capture the great moral truths, the essential principles, and the high drama of ordinary living. Give them a try. I promise you won’t regret it.

Top Bishop: Europe Will Soon Be Muslim Because of Our Stupidity

by Nick Hallett14 Jan 2017

Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will “soon be Muslim” because of the country’s “stupidity”, a prominent Italian archbishop has said. Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans. Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism. “All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.” “We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty. “Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.” The archbishop added that the problem is not just Muslim immigration. The number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, he said. “We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed. “I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?” He even criticised the Catholic Church for giving money to migrants.Giving money to migrants wandering around town is not only wrong, but morally harmful because we encourage their behaviour and they get used to that, not mentioning the fact that we already feed them. “I think sometimes this creates a beggars’ network. I remember that my father went to work very hard as a migrant in Australia so I could go to seminary. So he has experienced in his own skin the discomfort of poverty and the noble virtue of gratitude.”

As Technology Races Toward Giving Life To The Image Of The Beast, Theologians Want To Know If An A.I. ENTITY CAN COMMIT SIN

January 15, 2017 by SkyWatch Editor

As artificial intelligence (AI) catches up with human intelligence and machines become more and more autonomous, roboticists are increasingly asking about ethics. If a machine is capable of making a decision, what are the moral principles that guide that decision? Can a robot have a conscience? And if so, how is that conscience to be designed and developed? And on the further fringes of the debate, can a robot sin? According to Computer Business Review (CBR), a group of investors is putting $27 million into a fund designed to answer questions like this. They’re supporting the Ethics and Governance of Artificial Intelligence Fund, which is being overseen by the MIT Media Lab and the Berkman Klein Centre for Internet and Society at Harvard University. The idea, says CBR, is to apply the humanities, social sciences, and other non-tech disciplines to the development of AI. According to Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn and partner at venture capital firm Greylock Partners: “There’s an urgency to ensure that AI benefits society and minimizes harm […] However, talk of robots having a “conscience” or a “soul” makes some Christians uneasy.

Hungary Plans to Crack Down on All Soros-Funded NGOs

by Zoltan Simon January 10, 2017, 11:44 AM EST January 10, 2017, 12:39 PM EST

Ruling Fidesz party vice president pledges to ‘sweep out’ NGOs

Premier Orban, Trump backer, vowed to build ‘illiberal state’

Hungary plans to crack down on non-governmental organizations linked to billionaire George Soros now that Donald Trump will occupy the White House, according to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party. The European Union member will use “all the tools at its disposal” to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday. No one answered the phone at the Open Society Institute in Budapest when Bloomberg News called outside business hours. See also: Soros Group to Stay in Hungary Despite Trump-Inspired Crackdown “I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying. Lawmakers will start debating a bill to let authorities audit NGO executives, according to parliament’s legislative agenda. Orban, the first European leader to publicly back Trump’s campaign, has ignored criticism from the European Commission and U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration for building a self-described “illiberal state” modeled on authoritarian regimes including Russia, China and Turkey. In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.” Orban and his administration have frequently singled out NGOs supported by Soros, a U.S. Democratic Party supporter with a wide network of organizations that promote democracy in formerly communist eastern Europe. ‘Power Structure’ Trump also accused the 86-year-old billionaire of being part of “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.” In a pre-election commercial, he showed images of Soros along with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO Lloyd Blankfein, all of whom are Jewish. The Anti-Defamation League criticized the ad for touching on “subjects that anti-Semites have used for ages.”

SYRIA: Sultan Erdogan’s Secret Weapon, Elite Squads of Chinese Uyghur Mercenaries

January 7, 2017 By 21wire Steven Sahiounie Global Research

Turkey’s President Erdogan used his mercenary Army to fight against the Syrian government military forces for the purpose of regime change. This military project of regime change in Syria was devised, supported and established by the United States of America, who is a close ally of Turkey, and fellow NATO member. “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” General Wesley Clark, interview with “Democracy Now” dated 2007. Pres. Erdogan’s mercenary Army are all Chinese citizens of the far Western region in China, and home of the Uygur people, and are Sunni Muslims. The Uygur people are an ethnic group of Muslims living near the far west frontier of China and they speak the ancient Turkic language, which is the root of the modern Turkish language now spoken in Turkey. Their province is Xinjiang, and their capital city is Urumqi. For many years, Pres. Erdogan has supported the Uygur’s claims of oppression by the Chinese government. Pres. Erdogan has made speeches in which he compared the Uygur people to the ancestors of the people of Turkey. Pres. Erdogan feels there is a close historical and ethnical tie between modern Turkey and the Uygur people. In a speech, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that “Eastern Turkestan is not only the home of the Turkic peoples, but it is also the cradle of Turkic history, civilization, and culture. The martyrs of Eastern Turkestan are our own martyrs.” His designation of Eastern Turkestan is actually the Chinese province of Xinjiang, the home of the Uygur people. Pres. Erdogan used his own mercenary Army of Chinese citizens: the Uygurs. He had allowed them Turkish passports, which they used to pass legally through Central Asia to arrive in Turkey. The immigration officials at the airport in Turkey recognized these special passports, and would confiscate them, but allow the Chinese to pass through legally and enter Turkey. Pres. Erdogan had arranged for them to be transported from the airport in Turkey into Syria through the large and porous border area North of Idlib, which was once a mid-size town in North West Syria. In the Zeytinburnu distict of Istanbul, Nurali T., a Uyghur Turk working to transport terrorists into Syria, with implicit allowance of the Turkish government, and especially the Turkish Intelligence Services, provides militants with passports worldwide. According to Nurali T.’s office manager, “More than 50,000 Uyghur Turks came to Turkey with these fake passports from China via Thailand and Malaysia and entered Syria after staying a day in Istanbul”. Militants who entered Turkey with these fake passports are hosted either in hotels or guesthouses for a day before they pass into Syria through the borders which are under terrorist control. Idlib was a hot-spot of violence and destruction from the early months of the Syrian crisis, which started in March 2011. By late summer of 2011, Idlib was almost empty of residents, who either fled to Turkish refugee camps nearby, or fled to the refugee camps of Latakia. Idlib transformed into a Free Syrian Army headquarters and base of operations. When Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona made his famous illegal trip into Syria, to meet the FSA commanders, he was near Idlib. Eventually, the FSA recruited and invited Al Qaeda from Libya, Afghanistan, Chechnya, and other Arab and Western countries, such as USA, UK, Europe and Australia. The majority of Syrian residents do not support armed revolution, or the armed opposition called FSA. Because of this lack of support on the ground, the FSA chose to call in their Jihadi brothers globally, or face defeat. The American CIA office in Adana, Turkey, who runs the FSA command and supplies headquarters, had no problem in allowing the Al Qaeda and their affiliates to bolster the ground forces of the FSA, who had been dwindling. America used the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and Al Qaeda affiliates: Jibhat al Nusra, Islamic Army, Nour al Deen al Zinki and Ahrar al Sham, to fight the Syrian government forces, thus avoiding American “boots on the ground”. In fact, the FSA and all the other armed militias are acting as American “boots on the ground”: as mercenaries. The Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) is the Radical Islamic political group made up of Uygur people. Their leader is Emir Abd al-Ḥaqq al-Turkistānī. Since 2001, TIP has been affiliated with Al Qaeda. The ground battlefield leaders of TIP in Idlib province of Syria are Abu Rida al-Turkestani, and Ibrahim Mansour. In 2013 TIP aligned itself with Jibhat al Nusra, a terrorist group in Syria which is on the US list of outlawed terrorist groups. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said: “Chechens who defected to ISIS were replaced with the Uyghur Turkistan Islamic Party allied with Al-Qaeda.” “Islam Awazi,” the TIP’s media center, publishes three to four videos monthly in the column, “A Call From the Front Lines of Jihad,” which report about the military “successes” of TIP fighters. Also, a monthly “Tourism of the Believers” video is produced which demonstrates the “peaceful” and “military” life of Uyghur fighters in Syria. In particular, on July 22, 2016 the Turkestan Islamic Party distributed a video titled “My Desire,” which highlighted photos of Uyghur fighters in Syria.” Today ISIS-inspired radicals in Europe repeat the experience of TIP fighters, who massacred Han Chinese at stations in Kunming and Guangzhou using knives, axes, and machetes in 2014. The TIP has a long history of terrorist attacks inside China, targeting Chinese people who are not Muslim. Now that TIP is in Syria in large numbers, they have become a serious contender in global Jihad. In October 2013, five died when a car crashed into a group of pedestrians near Tiananmen Square in Beijing, and TIP claimed responsibility for the attack in a video. This act reminds us of the Nice, France truck attack which killed and injured a large number of pedestrians in summer 2016. The TIP terrorists in Idlib took great pride in destroying the several Christian Churches of the area. As in many parts of Syria, the Idlib area had been home to Muslims, Christians and minority sects. The TIP made many videos of the destruction of Churches and placing their TIP flag on the steeple of the Churches. The Uygurs are in general a poor and under educated group in China. They have a strong sense of family ties, and some have felt a political alienation from the Chinese government and society. Because of that, most of the Uygurs who migrated to Idlib, Syria brought their entire families with them. The married males: their wife, their children and their elderly parents. This is unlike most Jihadists, who are young males traveling alone. Because these Jihadists of the TIP had arrived in Idlib, Syria as whole family units, they needed special living arrangements, unlike the male-only typical terrorist camps. The TIP occupied a whole village in the Idlib province named Az-Zanbaqi, which is now home to 3,500 Uygurs of all ages and sexes. There were so many children with them, that they established their own schools there. The children are mainly taught the Koran and military training, like ‘Junior Jihadis’. Their dream is to survive the Syrian Jihad, and grow up well trained in terrorist fighting, then make their way back to China and begin their attack on China, to transform China into an Islamic State. The Saudi Arabian and Qatari petro-dollars are funding the regime change project in Syria, with the actual cash payroll distributed from Turkey by a Saudi official. America is the source of the regime change policy towards Syria, with Turkey as the logistical base of operations, and Syria is the battlefield, with unarmed Syrian civilians amounting to the largest number of casualties. Turkey is a modern “democracy”. It has long prided itself on its secular form of government. However, the AKP party, which is now the ruling party of Pres. Erdogan, is in fact an Islamist party. Pres. Erdogan has continually been making substantial changes to the social and political fabric of Turkey, in order to shift it towards Radical Islam. Radical Islam is not a religion, or sect, but a political ideology. The Muslim Brotherhood is a global political party which is based on Radical Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is outlawed in many countries, notably Egypt and Syria. Pres. Erdogan is a supporter and defender of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Syrian armed opposition, FSA, has a political wing, Syrian National Coalition (SNC). Pres. Erdogan hosted the SNC in Istanbul, Turkey. America is also home to the Muslim Brotherhood, with offices and members in almost every big city across USA. The US Congress once debated outlawing the Muslim Brotherhood; however, it did not pass. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood hold high positions in Pres. Obama’s administration, and in key departments such as security and defense. In the United Kingdom, the Muslim Brotherhood is also throughout the country, and has established itself with close ties to the UK government. The same can be said of the Australian government scene. Saudi Arabia is home to the Wahhabi brand of Radical Islam, while Qatar promotes the Salafi brand of Radical Islam, and Turkey, USA and UK are bases for the Muslim Brotherhood brand of Radical Islam. These three brands are the three sides of the same coin. However, the vast majority of Muslims worldwide reject Radical Islam, and according to Islamic scholars, they reject the “Death Cult “called ISIS, which was born out of the three brands just described. Syria’s “Chinatown” is not a tourist spot known for bright red paper lanterns and tasty noodle dishes. For that you will have to go to San Francisco, or Seattle. Syria’s “Chinatown” is a small village in the countryside, of rolling hills and olive orchards . Syria’s Chinatown is a terrorist town, not a tourist town. One day those Uygur ‘tourists’ to Syria will have out-stayed their VISA issued by Pres. Erdogan, and will face either death on the battlefield, or a slow walk Eastwards on the Old Silk Road their ancestors once made famous.

Kim Jong-un has enough weapons-grade plutonium to build TEN nuclear bombs, claim South Korea

Two-yearly white paper said the North has boosted its plutonium supplies

Has some 50 kilogrammes of weapons-grade plutonium as of the end of 2016

North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests so far

Kim Jong-Un said North will test intercontinental ballistic missiles this year

Donald Trump has vowed to halt Pyongyang in its tracks

By Afp and Sarah Dean For Mailonline Published: 01:19 EST, 11 January 2017 | Updated: 09:43 EST, 11 January 2017

North Korea now has enough plutonium to make 10 nuclear bombs, South Korea warned on Wednesday. Seoul's defence ministry said the North is believed to have some 50 kilogrammes (110 pounds) of weapons-grade plutonium as of the end of 2016, up from 40 kilogrammes eight years earlier. The North also has a 'considerable' ability to produce weapons based on highly-enriched uranium, it said in a two-yearly white paper, but did not estimate weapons-grade uranium stocks, citing impenetrable secrecy in the state's uranium programme. The announcement comes a week after leader Kim Jong-Un said it was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile. North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests and is seeking to develop a ballistic missile capable of hitting the US mainland. Pictured is a test-fire of a strategic submarine-launched ballistic missile Earleir this month North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was pictured visiting a quilt factory at the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Silk Mill The isolated communist state, which has carried out five nuclear tests and numerous missile launches, is thought to be planning a nuclear push in 2017 as it seeks to develop a weapons system capable of hitting the US mainland. Analysts are divided over how close Pyongyang is to realizing its full nuclear ambitions, but all agree it has made enormous strides since Kim took over as leader from his father Kim Jong-Il who died in December 2011. US think tank the Institute for Science and International Security estimated in June that the North's total nuclear arsenal was more than 21 bombs, up from 10-16 weapons in 2014, based on estimates of plutonium and uranium. The North has boosted plutonium supplies by reactivating its once-mothballed nuclear reactor in Yongbyon, the defence ministry said. North Korea deactivated the Yongbyon reactor in 2007 under an aid-for-disarmament accord, but began renovating it after Pyongyang's third nuclear test in 2013. The type of plutonium suitable for a nuclear bomb typically needs to be extracted from spent nuclear reactor fuel. The ministry also said the North has improved its ability to miniaturize nuclear warheads. Kim Jong-Un said in a New Year's speech that Pyongyang was in the 'final stages' of developing an intercontinental ballistic missile of the kind that could threaten US territory. The address drew a swift response from US president-elect Donald Trump, who took to Twitter vowing to halt Pyongyang in its tracks.

Taiwan scrambles jets, navy as China aircraft carrier enters Taiwan Strait

Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships on Wednesday as a group of Chinese warships, led by its sole aircraft carrier, sailed through the Taiwan Strait, the latest sign of heightened tension between Beijing and the self-ruled island. China's Soviet-built Liaoning aircraft carrier, returning from exercises in the South China Sea, was not encroaching in Taiwan's territorial waters but entered its air defense identification zone in the southwest, Taiwan's defense ministry said. As a result, Taiwan scrambled jets and navy ships to "surveil and control" the passage of the Chinese ships north through the body of water separating Taiwan and China, Taiwan defense ministry spokesman Chen Chung-chi said. Taiwan military aircraft and ships have been deployed to follow the carrier group, which is sailing up the west side of the median line of the strait, he said. Taiwan's top policymaker for China affairs urged Beijing to resume dialogue, after official communication channels were suspended by Beijing from June. "I want to emphasize our government has sufficient capability to protect our national security. It's not necessary to overly panic," said Chang Hsiao-yueh, minister for Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council, during a news briefing in response to reporters' questions on the Liaoning. "On the other hand, any threats would not benefit cross-Strait ties," she said. China has said the Liaoning was on an exercise to test weapons and equipment in the disputed South China Sea and its movements complied with international law. On the weekend, a Chinese bomber flew around the Spratly Islands in a show of "strategic force", a U.S. official said on Tuesday. The latest Chinese exercises have unnerved Beijing's neighbors, especially Taiwan which Beijing claims as its own, given long-running territorial disputes in the South China Sea. Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin said China's ships "couldn't always remain in port" and the navy had to hone its capabilities. "The Taiwan Strait is an international waterway shared between the mainland and Taiwan. So, it is normal for the Liaoning to go back and forth through the Taiwan Strait in the course of training, and it won't have any impact on cross-Strait relations," Liu said at a briefing on Asia-Pacific security. China claims most of the energy-rich waters of the South China Sea, through which about $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year. Neighbors Brunei, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam also have claims. China distrusts Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen and has stepped up pressure on her after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump broke years of diplomatic protocol and took a congratulatory call last month from her. Trump then riled China by casting doubt on the "one China" policy that Beijing regards as the basis of U.S.-Chinese relations. Tsai drew anger from China again when she met senior U.S. Republican lawmakers in Houston on Sunday en route to Central America, in a transit stop that Beijing had asked the United States to not allow. Beijing suspects Tsai wants to push for the island's formal independence, a red line for the mainland, which has never renounced the use of force to bring what it deems a renegade province under its control. Tsai says she wants to maintain peace with China.

A Recipe For Disaster: Investigative Journalist Uncovers Massive ISIS Paramilitary Network Across America As The Left Prepare For 'The Biggest Riots In History'

January 11, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The recent story over at Zero Hedge reports a massive network of ISIS sleeper cells spanning the entire United States has been uncovered - training camps and all - and it appears that a massive cover up is going on at the highest levels regarding them. With FBI Director James Comey having previously stated that ISIS was present in all 50 US states, the claims being made here could be looked at as another piece of the puzzle leading to the conclusion there is an ongoing plan being carried out to 'subvert' America.: Either the US government and current administration is so hopelessly incompetent that they are unable to detect domestic and foreign threats which are discoverable by investigative journalists and whistleblower organizations. Or, there are factions within the United States government who are seeking to prevent competent, well-intentioned members of the intelligence community, law enforcement, and legislative/regulatory branches from taking action against ISIS operatives and extremist recruits who are active both on the American border as well as in the United States. William Craddick ANP has long reported that an ongoing 'trojan horse invasion' of America was being allowed to take place over the past 8 years. The claim now being made by investigative journalist William Craddick of a massive paramilitary network here in America being run by ISIS is just the latest sign that Americans should have all eyes and ears open over the coming days and weeks as we witness what many believe is a very real effort to destabilize America. Craddick, (who also discovered the connection between Hillary Clinton, Haiti and known child trafficker Laura Silsby as also reported in this Conservative Daily Post story), now warns that the 'lone wolf narrative' of recent terror attacks across America being pushed by the MSM is a lie. He also warns us that wherever it appears there is a 'lone wolf', there is a 'wolf pack' waiting somewhere nearby, providing them with support. Also warning that veterans of the Syrian war and other 'command figures' were being smuggled into the United States and that black youth in America are now being radicalized to their cause, we see in the warnings of 'the biggest riots in United States history' in only 10 days at Trump's inauguration as another sign those long working to destabilize America are now trying to push America past our 'breaking point'. As Infowars and The Express have reported, ISIS has declared Trump's inauguration day on January 20th to be 'bloody Friday'. With US special forces on high alert that day and over 5,000 national guard members coming to Washington DC to deal with anarchists and keep order, next Friday is shaping up to be a day for the ages. The first of three new videos below looks at the new Zero Hedge story in which our videographer breaks down Craddick's proof of a massive ISIS paramilitary network being run across all 50 states in the US. In the 2nd video our videographer takes a look at the effort to disrupt Trump's inauguration. In the final video below, Infowars looks at the potential for a massive uptick in Islamic terror across America now that Trump is closing in upon taking office. Rather than embracing living in America, where a peaceful transfer of power can take place, and celebrating what might have just been the biggest political revolution in US history with Donald Trump's stunning election victory over a 'highly favored' Hillary Clinton (who was the very personification of the 'elite'), anarchists are hoping to turn Trump's inauguration into one of the biggest riots in history. According to the new story by Michael Snyder over at the Economic Collapse Blog, anarchists will be taking a wide range of actions to disrupt Trump's inauguration. They'll be countered by 'Bikers for Trump', more than 5,000 national guard troops and an a huge number of DC police along with thousands of Trump supporters and well-wishers. A recipe for disaster? Considering ISIS's warning of a 'bloody Friday', Washington DC might not be 'the place to be' on Friday. Rather than being joyful that a US foreign policy of aggression in the Middle East that has resulted in the losses of countless innocent lives overseas and a huge number of American lives appears to be coming to an end with a 'non-interventionist' Trump foreign policy, 'the powers that were' on the 'left' lament over the possibility that a 'world war 3' with Russia may be avoided. Thus depriving the satanic globalists of their much-desired blood sacrifice, it also deprives the Islamic State of their chance for nuclear war leading to 'Armageddon' and the return of their 'mahdi'.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama leaves office a saint in the media and left's eyes, despite the fact that he helped to create this mess in America that has lead to the masses to take to the streets, not Donald Trump. As if they're caught in some alternative world, we see in these riots part of a continuing plan to complete the subversion of America as reported in this new story from Mike Adams over at Natural News who argues that left-wing media has already helped totalitarian forces achieve 3 out of the 4 steps needed for the Soviet-style overthrow of American society and government. What happens if protesters meet up with terrorists? A recipe for disaster on American streets. Often called useful idiots, those taking to the streets to protest Trump's election should instead be catching themselves up with history, particularly the history of the 2016 election which saw politicians from both sides of the aisle come unglued by Trump, joining the entire mainstream media in self-destruct mode as Trump destroyed 'political correctness'. Let's hope that with that 'destruction' comes the destruction of 'corruption' in American politics but we certainly won't hold our breaths waiting for that to happen. As we come down the homestretch of the Obama regime, we'd love to see Trump prove us wrong.

Artificial Human: Scientists Grew a Beating Human Heart from Stem Cells

By Nate Brown - 01/11/2017

Scientists at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School used adult skin cells to regenerate functional human heart tissue, bringing humanity one step closer the creating an artificial human. The scientists took adult human stem cells, used a method called messenger RNA to turn them into pluripotent stem cells, and then turned them into two different types of cardiac cells. For two weeks the researchers infused the hearts with a nutrient solution, which created the same circumstances a heart would grow inside a human body. After that short amount of time, the scientists then shocked the heart with electricity, and it began beating. This is the closest scientists have ever gotten to creating a beating human heart, and this brings scientists one step closer to the goal of developing a full artificial human by 2026.

More marine life misery for Canada's East Coast as lobsters, connors, starfish and crab wash up dead along beaches of Norris Point,

Photo the Telegram

Yet another death of marine life mystery for the East Coast of Canada as lobsters, connors, starfish and crab are washing up dead along the beaches of Norris Point, NL, Canada. DECKERS COVE, N.L. - Josephine Chubbs was shocked to see a large number of sea creatures wash up on the beach near her Norris Point home. Chubbs lives in an area known as Deckers Cove. “Our backyard is right on the ocean,” she said by phone Monday. She estimates there were 100 lobsters alone. “It was babies, from two inches to measured (harvestable) lobsters.” Chubbs, who is the custodian at the Bonne Bay Marine Station, was ready to do what she could to get the creatures to the tanks at the marine station, but everything was dead. “There was nothing that I could help save.” She later called Bob Hooper; the retired MUN professor is the founding director of the station and still volunteers there, to get his thoughts on the discovery. From the pictures she sent, Hooper was struck that there was a mixture of species, so he feels the creatures were not killed by a disease. “Everything looked very healthy, apart from being dead,” he said. He also noted that all the creatures washed up reach their northern limit in Newfoundland and are not things that are found in Labrador. “The significance of that is it suggests that cold is the problem.” He’s seen mortalities dozens of times between the fall and this time of year related to water temperatures getting close to and below freezing. “Even it goes down a fraction of a degree it might make the difference between a connor being alive and a connor being dead.” He said the loss is probably worse than it looked, as its possible more creatures than what washed up were affected, but hopes it’s localized to the shoal waters in front of Chubb’s house. Something similar to this happened in Nova Scotia a few weeks ago as thousands of dead fish, starfish, crabs, clams, scallops and lobster washed up on the shore causing concern for public and scientists alike.

Obama talks about himself 75 times during 51-minute farewell speech

January 11, 2017 By Kyle Olson

President Obama’s final speech to Americans wouldn’t have been complete if he hadn’t talking about himself dozens of times. The outgoing commander-in-chief focused on himself 75 times to be exact during the 51-minute farewell address. Speaking to supporters in Chicago, Obama cast his remarks not to much on what the American people accomplished during his eight years in office, but rather what he did. “Whether we’ve seen eye-to-eye or rarely agreed at all, my conversations with you, the American people – in living rooms and schools; at farms and on factory floors; at diners and on distant outposts – are what have kept me honest, kept me inspired, and kept me going. Every day, I learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man,” Obama said in the opening paragraph. “I first came to Chicago when I was in my early twenties, still trying to figure out who I was; still searching for a purpose to my life,” he said. Obama said later, “I committed to President-Elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me.” Speaking about having faith in America, Obama again looked inward: Mine sure has been. Over the course of these eight years, I’ve seen the hopeful faces of young graduates and our newest military officers. I’ve mourned with grieving families searching for answers, and found grace in Charleston church. I’ve seen our scientists help a paralyzed man regain his sense of touch, and our wounded warriors walk again. I’ve seen our doctors and volunteers rebuild after earthquakes and stop pandemics in their tracks. I’ve seen the youngest of children remind us of our obligations to care for refugees, to work in peace, and above all to look out for each other. The president promised he’s not going away, so supporters can fuel his ego a while longer. “I won’t stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my days that remain. For now, whether you’re young or young at heart, I do have one final ask of you as your President – the same thing I asked when you took a chance on me eight years ago,” he said. The Daily Caller noted the president said “I” 33 times, “my” 20 times, “me” 10 times, and “I’m” or “I’ve” 12 times.

Be in prayer that there is a calm, a calm between now and when the new President gets sworn in, this is extremely important. For if you do not pray, if you do not call upon my name blood shall flow in the streets and when blood flows in the streets Obama will call in the United Nation army and he will not leave office, he will not leave office. Therefore, you need to be in prayer, you need to be in prayer, for you can stall this off, you can stall this off until another time and when it takes place in the other time they will not call military troops into the streets. It will be handled in a total different way, a way that will benefit my church, a way that will benefit the people, but it is extremely important pray, pray, pray.

Most Democrats Embrace Marxist-Style Violence: Can Trump Ever Feel Safe?

By Dave Hodges

There was a loose statement that was commonly thrown around during the election: “The Democratic Party is the new American Communist Party”. Although one size does not fit all, this comment is essentially accurate. To be accurate, the Democratic Party is the new Socialist Party. The Socialist Party is the first cousin to the Communist Party and both parties, to be covered in a future installment of this series, mutually make use of the same front groups. ALL OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS EMBRACE VIOLENT CHANGE OVER THE LEGAL PROCESS (documentation listed below). The Progressive Caucus: A Communist Front Organization The Progressive Caucus is an extreme radical, leftist, socialist/communist group which claims one senator, Bernie Sanders, and 70 democratic Congressman. It is also considered to be one of thr so-called “front organizations” for the Communist Party, and these front organizations are common and ubiquitous. In other words, they are everywhere. Further, this is not a new allegation in the modern era, former Congressman Alan West made this same allegation in 2012. Spokeswoman Angela Melvin, speaking for Congressman, Alan West stated: “The congressman was referring to the 76 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. The Communist Party has publicly referred to the Progressive Caucus as its allies. The Progressive Caucus speaks for itself. These individuals certainly aren’t proponents of free markets or individual economic freedom.” The Congressman, himself, stated in response to a question on how many of his fellow members of Congress are Communists,, West replied: “It’s a good question. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. … It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.” Democrats do not directly belong to the American Communist Partymas they are not so stupid to advertise their true intentions. However, many Democratic Congressmen, as I discovered do belong to front organizations, or close allies to the Communist Party and are actively endorsed by the Communist Party. Facebook Rears It’s Ugly Censorship Face, Again! In the aftermath of Benghazi, I was sent an excerpt from West’s Facebook page by a few readers who speculated that the killing of Stevens and his security detail was the result of a Communist plot. My Benghazi investigation did not take me anywhere close to these conclusions, but I thought they were noteworthy and were certainly reflective of the Obama administration as a whole, particularly Hillary Clinton, so, I saved the statement for any possible future reference. Former Congressman West published his statement on his Facebook page and it read as follows: “I stand by the point of my comments. The press wants to write gotcha stories and talk semantics, but just look at the words and actions of the Progressive Caucus. You can call them socialist, Marxist, communist or whatever you want, but the point is, they oppose free markets and individual economic freedom, they want to redistribute wealth, and they want to see the nation fundamentally transformed. Their policies are destructive and I will stand up to them regardless of the critics. Members of this Caucus lavished praise on Fidel Castro following a 2009 visit, just to name one example. The Communist Party USA claims the Progressive Caucus as its ‘ally.’” Unfortunately, when one visits West’s page, even using the Wayback Machine, this is what you will be met with: Sorry, this page isn’t available The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. The Progressive Caucus At the time that West made his allegations against dozens of Democrats for being members of this Communist Part front group, the organization was co-chaired by Minnesota’s U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison/ Where have you heard of Keith Ellison? He has attempted to seize control of the Democratic National Committee. He is a Muslim Brotherhood supporter. Ellison is a member of the Socialist Party. Six One-Half Dozen the Other The Gateway Pundit, way back in 2010, published a 2009 list released by the American Socialist Party of Democrats that belonged to their organization who served in the 111th Congress. Prominent members of recent and prominent Congressmen are highlighted in bold.

Many of these Congressman, several who are still serving in Congress, are beholding to the following philosophy: The following is an excerpt from the homepage and platform of the Socialist Party “Democratic Revolution From Below No oppressed group has ever been liberated except by its own organized efforts to overthrow its oppressors. A society based on radical democracy, with power exercised through people’s organizations, requires a socialist transformation from below. People’s organizations cannot be created by legislation, nor can they spring into being only on the eve of a revolution….” (Editor’s Note: This is a clear Marxist philosophy which espouses the use of violent revolution to achieve one’s communist goals. This represents a total disrespect for the elections and the democratic process. These Socialists, masquerading as Democrats who are telling you right here that they will not respect the rule of law and allow a peaceful inauguration). Conclusion The American Socialist Party, the American Communist Party, is there a difference? They are both anti-religious, disrespect the Constitution, they favor violent change as opposed to legal change, they are anti-patriotic in favor of a globalist philosophy, they both disrespect the value of American citizenship, they mock American exceptionalism, they both disavow the value and the contributions of the Founding Fathers as well as the sanctity of the Constitution. Alan West lost his bid for re-election because he dared to call out so many of his fellow Congressman for being socialists/communists. Isn’t it interesting that anyone who opposes the current and very subversive ideals of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats, as a whole, are now labeled as secret agents representing Russia and were co-conspirators in undermining our elections on behalf of the Communists. Yet, the very organizations making these fake news allegations against the Independent Media were the very same media outlets who went after West and his claims of a communist friendly Democratic Party in the ultimate act of journalistic hypocrisy. The real Russian supporters in the media are organizations such as the Washington Post and the New York Times. One of the salient conclusions that one can take away from this series is that the Democrats will stop at nothing to prevent Trump from taking the oath of office and if he does, using violence to prevent the implementation of his populist agenda. People have asked me why I have mentioned assassination so many times in relation to Trump, now you know why. As this series unfolds, I have concluded that it would be highly appropriate for the Democratic Party to move its headquarters to Moscow. And for those who don’t think that Russia and Putin are not in on this, you are not paying attention and I would recommend that you read Part One, especially that part that has to do with what the Russian defectors have told us for decades on how the Russians would defeat us from within.

Anarchists Are Hoping To Turn Donald Trump’s Inauguration On January 20th Into One Of The Biggest Riots In U.S. History

Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal

Michael Snyder | Economic Collapse - January 10, 2017

Radical leftists are planning to make January 20th the most chaotic Inauguration Day in American history. Their stated goal is to “disrupt” the Inauguration festivities as much as possible, and they are planning a wide range of “actions” to achieve that stated goal. Some of the more moderate groups are using terms such as “civil resistance” and “civil disobedience”, but others are openly talking about “blockades”, jumping barricades, throwing projectiles and “citywide paralysis”. My hope is that all of their efforts will turn out to be a big flop, but it is important to understand that these groups are well funded, highly organized and extremely motivated. The election of Donald Trump has been perhaps the single most galvanizing moment for the radical left in modern American history, and they are working very hard to turn January 20th into a major political statement. In fact, just recently one activist group took out a full page ad in the New York Times… Thousands of activists, journalists, scientists, entertainers, and other prominent voices took out a full-page call to action in the New York Times on Wednesday making clear their rejection of President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence with the simple message: “No!” “Stop the Trump/Pence regime before it starts! In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a fascist America!” the ad states, followed by a list of signatories that includes scholar Cornel West; author Alice Walker; Chase Iron Eyes of the Standing Rock Sioux; educator Bill Ayers; poet Saul Williams; CNN‘s Marc Lamont Hill; Carl Dix of the Communist Party USA; and numerous others. The ad pointed people to refusefascism.org, and it asserted that Trump must be stopped whether he was legitimately elected or notTrump promises to inflict repression and suffering on people in this country, to deport millions, to increase violence up to the use of nuclear weapons on people across the globe, and to inflict catastrophes upon the planet itself. He has assembled a cabinet of Christian fundamentalist fanatics, war mongers, racists, science deniers. NO! His regime must not be allowed to consolidate. We REFUSE to accept a Fascist America! If you go to refusefascism.org, you will discover that the protests that they are organizing in Washington D.C. will begin on January 14th. They say that they want to “stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts”, and they hope to have protests going “every day and every night” without interruption through at least January 20th. Another group that plans to kick things off on January 14th is DisruptJ20. Of course that is short for “Disrupt January 20th”. If you go to their official website, you will find a long slate of events that have already been scheduled. According to Legba Carrefour, a spokesperson for DisruptJ20, one of the goals of the group is to block major transportation routes into and throughout our nation’s capital. And he is not shy about the fact that they literally want to “shut down the Inauguration”… “We are planning to shut down the inauguration, that’s the short of it,” he says. “We’re pretty literal about that, we are trying to create citywide paralysis on a level that I don’t think has been seen in D.C. before. We’re trying to shut down pretty much every ingress into the city as well as every checkpoint around the actual inauguration parade route.” If Carrefour and his fellow conspirators are able to actually accomplish that, it truly would be unprecedented. And while DisruptJ20 is not publicly advocating violence, they are not exactly discouraging it either… Carrefour says DisruptJ20 has no publicly announced plans to jump barricades along the inauguration parade route or throw projectiles at the new president, but that autonomous direct actions are encouraged. “I can’t comment on specific stuff we’re doing like that, mostly because that would be illegal. But, yeah, it will get pretty crazy, I expect,” he says. “‘Have fun!’ I say.” After the rioting that we have seen in Baltimore, Ferguson, Charlotte and many other communities around the nation in recent years, I hope that authorities are taking these threats quite seriously. Once Donald Trump won the election, many conservatives seemed to think that the war was won. But the truth of the matter is that many on the left were completely blindsided by Trump’s surprise victory, and now that they are fully awake they are gearing up for battle like never before. And these protests are not going to end on January 20th. In fact, abortion advocates are hoping to get close to a million women into Washington D.C. on the day following the Inauguration to protest for abortion rights. Filmmaker Michael Moore is hoping that this march will be the beginning of “100 days of resistance” against Trump’s presidency… Filmmaker and liberal icon Michael Moore has announced his plans to attend the Women’s March on Washington to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration later this month and has called for sore loser liberals to go further — by staging protests acts of resistance through the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. In an appearance, this weekend on MSNBC’s The Last Word, the 62-year-old Trumpland and Fahrenheit 9/11 director made a “call to arms” to those opposed to Trump’s presidency to join the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for January 21, the day after the presidential inauguration. “It’s important that everybody go there,” Moore told MSNBC’s Ari Melber. Of course it is easy to imagine how all of this could spiral wildly out of control. If Trump cracks down on these protests really hard in an attempt to restore law and order, that could end up sparking a dramatic backlash against his “police state tactics”. And if the protests become even bigger and more violent, Trump could respond by cracking down even more harshly. Let us hope for some really cold weather in D.C. at the end of January so that as many troublemakers as possible get discouraged and stay home. Violent protests, blockades and riots aren’t going to solve anything, and they could easily open fresh wounds in a nation that is becoming more divided with each passing day.

The Globalist Plan For Serfdom – Their Plan To Exterminate 80% Of The World’s Population

Posted on January 11, 2017 Written by Amy S.

Their Plan To Exterminate 80% Of The World’s Population The globalists have been working toward their goals for decades and what they want is nothing less than the complete subjugation of the people. Rent in a lot of cities is over $1,000 for a one bedroom. Yet the minimum wage is only $7.50. They want you living 10 to a coffin apartment or living with your parent. The whole point is to stop people from getting a big house. They want you to live in the mega city stacked up like sardines. It’s all about saving the environment to the globalists, or at least it’s there excuse. It’s nearly impossible to rise up in this country now. H.G Wells was a propagandist and social engineer that worked for the world elites. How much of his work was from his own mind and how much he was told directly to write is debatable. The Open Conspiracy calls for various things that either have been implemented since like a centralized world bank controlling all money creation, which all “world citizens” (at this point in time unwittingly) would pay a tax into. He also calls for eliminating property ownership, replacing individual land owners with “householders” or “tenants.” Other choice things discussed in The Open Conspiracy, and these are direct quotes, are Wells talking about the need for a “mental sanitation process” where feelings of nationalism are to be replaced with an acceptance being a “world citizen”. Wells says the main objective of the “Open Conspiracy” in the early stages of the social engineering process is to “disentangle all traditions, loyalties, and time honored ideas”, meaning loyalty to ones country, race and family. He also calls for education reform to have education that pushes “the cause of world reconstruction” as well as publishing books that push this idea and making sure all libraries are stocked with them. He also says the Open Conspiracy must “impose freedom”. Buy a hard copy of The Open Conspiracy. Overpopulation The elite have long viewed a rising population as a threat to their dominance. They realized that eventually a large number of people will inevitably overthrow and remove them from power. They are particularly concerned with the middle class whose intelligence and capacity to organize makes them the biggest threat. Consequently, the elite plan to destroy the middle class and make all the of public equally poor and thus incapable of rebelling. As written on the Georgia Guidestones, they want a global population of just 500 million. This means 6+ billion people must die over the coming century. In order to bring about global governance it is imperative that communism and capitalism be merged into a new system where economic control remains and is concentrated in private hands and social control is based on collectivism. As established by a U.S congressional investigation headed by Senator Norman Dodd into the great foundations back in the 1960’s, this was in fact one of the main purposes for which the foundations were created. Multi-generational Planning The evolution of society is not something the elite can leave to chance since society could evolve in thousands of different and unpredictable ways. If they were ever to allow this they might lose their control and dominance over us. In order to continue their position as the dominant minority, they plan decades and even centuries in advance. RELATED : Stocking the Pantry For Three Months Of Meals – Storing The Right Amount For Meals, Labeling Foods And Saving Money Revelation of the Method The elite’s do tell us through their books and publications, movies and news releases what they are doing – this is called Revelation of the Method. If you are too stupid to recognize it for what it is that is your problem from their point of view. It is a form of ritual mocking of the victim. Criminalizing Natural Health, Vitamins, and Herbs The Codex Alimentarius is a threat to the freedom of people to choose natural healing and alternative medicine and nutrition. Ratified by the World Health Organization, and going into Law in the United States in 2009, the threat to health freedom has never been greater. This is the first part of a series of talks by Dr. Rima Laibow MD, available on DVD from the Natural Solutions Foundation, an non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about how to stop Codex Alimentarius from taking away our right to freely choose nutritional health. In this video she explains how the implementation of Codex Alimentarius will result in the death of 3 billion people. What we are taught about history in American schools is not history, but a fairy tale. Better yet, it is propaganda designed to hoodwink an unsuspecting society about its true heritage and the treasonous acts and sabotage that were conceived in order to bring about a New World Order. You are about to learn the real identities of those who have infiltrated your nation on behalf of secret societies intent on bringing about the total slavery of mankind. In the past, others have written about the numerous conspiracies to control natural resources, energy, food and our sovereign right to live on planet Earth — not as slaves of a wealthy few — but as free men, women, and children exercising the free will given to them by God. Imagine you were a member of a secret organization whose sole agenda was to control the entire planet. If your plan was to accomplish this goal without being perceived by your intended victims, discretion would be paramount. Your organization would devise a series of historical events that, on the surface, would appear to be everyday, happenstance occurrences (natural disasters, man-made diseases, acts of murder, assassination, terror, manipulation of money and energy supplies, contamination of foods, pollution of natural resources, and war). The timing of these events would require patience, careful planning, and cooperation from others in positions of trust, stealth and deceit. In essence, the whole mission must derive its power through deception and concealment and must have a master plan. For the New World Order, a world government is just the beginning. Once in place they can engage their plan to exterminate 80-90% of the world’s population, while enabling the “elites” to live forever with the aid of advanced technology. For the first time, crusading filmmaker ALEX JONES reveals their secret plan for humanity’s extermination: Operation ENDGAME.

Endgame’s compelling look at past atrocities committed by those attempting to steer the future delivers information that the controlling media has meticulously censored for over 60 years. It fully reveals the elite’s program to dominate the earth and carry out the wicked plan in all of human history. Endgame is not conspiracy theory, it is documented fact in the elite’s own words. The Conspiracy Of The New World Order World War 3 The Secret The genocidal depopulation plan generally involves poisoning or sterilizing people through the use of chem. trails or water fluoridation. Agribusinesses transnational like Monsanto are often implicated in some sort of scheme to monopolize the world’s food supply so it can be easily tainted with deadly toxins. Just about anything that can be said to involve “chemicals” can be implicated in this nefarious scheme: vaccines, alleged covert geo-engineering schemes, genetically modified food, etc. Variants of the theory include those with an anti-abortion tinge who incorporate conspiracy theories about Planned Parenthood, and AIDS conspiracy theorists who believe AIDS was concocted in a laboratory for the purpose of reducing the population. Another variant, largely attributable to Lyndon La Roche, has worldwide nuclear war as part of the conspirators’ alleged plan along with a deliberate economic collapse and de-industrialization to force the world back into a “new dark age.” The NEW WORLD ORDER Has Something BAD Planned The health commission of Codex Alimentarius, and the subsequent legislation to come from it, has provable roots to Nazism, Communism, eugenics, and one-world government initiatives. Let’s put forth a few of the names and philosophies of the tyrants responsible for this proposed global health tyranny. Grow your own vegetables and fruits, find a natural spring in your area and bottle your own water, become a hunter and eat more deer ( naturally hard for some), you can find local butchers who buy meat locally, usually these local farmers are not held to these standards…. yet. stop banking at major banks and pray to GOD you survive when it hits the fan.

Banks Not Going Broke, They Are Broke-Rick Rule

By Greg Hunter On January 11, 2017 By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

Rick Rule is an expert on investing in all sorts of natural resources, and that includes gold and silver. He thinks it won’t take a “catastrophic event” to move prices higher in precious metals. Rule explains, “You remember the decade of the 1970’s? The shocks to the financial system were severe but survivable. The gold price went from $35 per ounce to $850 per ounce.. . . As you can see, I am not a young guy. I was a finance major, and the way I learned accounting, it’s not like the banks are going to go broke, the banks are broke. . . . It isn’t a question of ongoing bank solvency. It’s a question of real bank solvency and how long people will believe in the system. . . . If the major players had to face a liquidity squeeze, even the level of magnitude they faced in 2008, I suspect the fiscal tools available are constrained enough now that they would be unsuccessful in containing a broad liquidity base contagion.” So, we would see bankruptcies and failures, and the Fed would have to let things go. Rule contends, “I don’t think they would have any other choice but to let them go. My suspicion is we are going to skate through this without a catastrophic situation. I could be right and I could be wrong, but I think in terms of the gold price, it doesn’t matter. If the system is tested, tested and not wrecked, it will be extraordinary for the gold price. What people fail to recognize is the simple arithmetic that you and I owe each other, and other countries, $20 trillion. That’s $20 trillion in liabilities. That’s 20 with twelve zeros. People don’t focus on it because it’s almost an incomprehensible number. Beyond that, we owe each other in the context of promises in excess of $100 trillion. That number doesn’t come from a cranky old guy at Sprott. It comes from the Congressional Budget Office. How on earth are we going to resolve $120 trillion on balance sheet and off balance sheet liabilities before we consider state and local debt and underfunded pensions? My suspicion is we get out of this in one of two kinds of defaults. A formal default where . . . they say to 64 year old Rick Rule that we made you promises on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, but we lied. We say to holders of U.S. debt where we gave a full faith and credit promise that we lied. Those are official defaults. That requires telling the truth, and I think that is unlikely. I think we will have a series of unofficial defaults where we devalue the net present value of the obligations, which is a different way of saying we devalue the . . . currency, gradually like we did in the 1970’s. I think that will have the same impact on gold and silver prices.” On the best thing President-elect Trump can do for America, Rule contends, “If Mr. Trump can roll back restrictive regulation in the United States, we are our own greatest enemy. If he can make the United States great again in the sense he keeps us from competing with ourselves, then we will see a spectacular economic boom in this country.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Rick Rule, President and CEO of Sprott U.S. Holdings Inc.

China aircraft carrier crosses Taiwan Strait amid tension

5 hours ago

China's only aircraft carrier has led several warships across the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan's defence ministry said. The Liaoning was returning from drills in the South China Sea. It did not enter Taiwanese waters but did cross its air defence identification zone (ADIZ), the ministry said. It is the latest escalation amid tensions between the two neighbours, and Taiwanese authorities have asked the public to remain calm. In response, Taiwan's military monitored the flotilla of Chinese ships as it passed through the 160km-wide (100-mile) strait, Taiwan's defence ministry said. China considers self-governing Taiwan part of its territory, to be reunited with the mainland by force if necessary. Tensions have been high since US President-elect Donald Trump broke with long-standing diplomatic protocol and took a congratulatory phone call from Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen. What's behind the China-Taiwan divide? The head of Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council, Chang Hsiao-Yueh, said the authorities were monitoring China's actions and appealed for calm. "I want to emphasise that our government has sufficient capability to protect our national security. It is not necessary to overly panic. On the other hand, any threats would not benefit cross-strait ties at all. Together we should show mutual good will." China has increased military drills near Taiwan, and spoken of "increased levels of uncertainty" in relations with the island. A diplomatic row was again kicked off when Ms Tsai visited the US at the weekend in transit to Central America and met officials, despite protests from Beijing.

Young Taiwanese support independence even if it means war with China: poll

Taiwan on its way to solely Taiwanese identity: academics

By Matthew Strong, Taiwan News, Staff Writer 2017/01/07 16:34

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A total of 43 percent of Taiwanese younger than 40 support independence for the island, even if it meant China would launch a military attack, according to a poll mentioned by four Taiwanese academics in a letter to the Washington Post. “The Taiwanese see themselves as Taiwanese, not as Chinese,” reads the title on the analysis piece published by the authoritative United States newspaper in its Monkey Cage section and written by Fang-Yu Chen, Wei-ting Yen, Austin Horng-en Wang and Bryan Hioe. In the piece explaining the background to relations between Taiwan and China, the four authors say that attitudes on the island have not been static, and reject U.S. President Barack Obama’s statement that the Taiwanese “won’t charge forward and declare independence” “as long as they can function with ‘some degree of autonomy.’” The authors quote a survey conducted by the Election Study Center at National Chengchi University originated by Duke University political scientist Emerson Niu. “For Taiwanese younger than 40, pro-independence support reaches 84 percent. Perhaps most startling, 43 percent of the under-40 generation would support independence even if it meant China would attack Taiwan under the risk of war,” the authors wrote. However, they also said that Taiwanese citizens are worried about the economy and about China using economic elements to force political concessions from the island. “When asked to choose between formal independence or maintaining economic ties with China, 83 percent chose bread over romance,” the authors wrote. Looking at different attitudes between the generations, they emphasized that a solely Taiwanese identity will eventually prevail. Almost 70 percent of people younger than 40 consider themselves to be only Taiwanese, and not Chinese, while this figure runs up to 78 percent for people born after martial law ended in 1987, according to the article by Chen, Yen, Wang and Hioe.

Does China want Taiwan or Republic of China?

Posted : 2017-01-11 15:54 Updated : 2017-01-11 15:54 By Frank Ching

Taiwan's leader, President Tsai Ing-wen, arrived in Honduras Sunday for a closely watched four-nation Central American visit but, in China at least, there was much more interest in her stopovers in the United States – Houston on the way out and San Francisco on the way home. However, President-elect Donald J. Trump's transition team had issued assurances that there would be no contact between them and the Taiwan leader during her transit layovers. China's sensitivity stems from an unprecedented phone call the Taiwan leader made to congratulate Trump on his electoral triumph even though the two sides have no diplomatic relations. China has made clear that Taiwan will have to pay for such transgressions. A Global Times commentary Jan. 10 trumpeted, "Tsai had a phone call with Trump, but soon Sao Tome and Principe broke ties with Taiwan. It is certain that more countries will do the same." After Honduras, the Taiwan leader will go to Nicaragua to attend the inauguration of Daniel Ortega, who will begin a new presidential term. At the ceremony, she will have a rare opportunity to meet other foreign leaders. After that, Tsai is scheduled to visit Guatemala and, finally, El Salvador, before returning to Taiwan via San Francisco. The four Central American countries represent a significant portion of the 21 countries that still accord diplomatic recognition to Taiwan rather than China. In 2007, just before Ma Ying-jeou became president, Costa Rica broke relations with Taiwan to establish ties with China. Then, for the eight years of Ma's presidency, there was an unspoken "diplomatic truce" in which China refrained from grabbing Taiwan's diplomatic allies. Thus, in 2008 when Paraguay indicated interest in relations, Beijing was unresponsive. Similarly, in 2009, when Mauricio Funes won the presidential election in El Salvador, he was quoted as saying that he would consider establishing relations with China and severing ties with Taiwan. The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman rather pointedly responded that "despite the absence of diplomatic ties, the Chinese people have friendly feelings towards the Salvador people, and we are willing to carry out friendly exchanges and mutually beneficial cooperation in various areas with Salvador." The emphasis was on developing friendly exchanges in the absence of diplomatic relations. But now that Tsai Ing-wen is president, the diplomatic truce is over. Tsai will have to be sensitive to signs that other countries will follow Sao Tome's example. This is especially the case since Taiwan is in no position to compete with China in terms of checkbook diplomacy. El Salvador and other countries must be re-assessing whether they should stick with Taiwan or switch to China. A commentary in the official China Daily newspaper on Jan. 5 referred to the decision by the Sao Tome and added darkly, "The same could happen with Taiwan's remaining 21 ‘allies'." But China needs to gauge the wisdom of attempting to strip Taiwan of all its diplomatic allies. What are the implications of such a move to isolate Taiwan diplomatically? At present, Taiwan's formal name is the "Republic of China" and the 21 countries that recognize it have relations with the ROC, not with a "Republic of Taiwan." If no country in the world recognizes the Republic of China, Taiwan will have no choice but to be Taiwan. It will no longer be Chinese. Moreover, Taiwan can survive without formal diplomatic relations. It will then focus on its substantive relations, such as those with the US, Japan and other countries, who do not recognize the "Republic of China." The ostensibly unofficial US embassy in Taipei, for example, doesn't have the word "China" in its name. It is simply the American Institute in Taiwan. Japan, when it established relations with China in 1972, created something called the Interchange Association to be its "unofficial" embassy. However, last week, on Jan. 1, the name was changed to Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association, recognizing the island as Taiwan, not China. This may well become a trend. Because of its economic importance, other countries need to have dealings with Taiwan and they need to call it something. If the name doesn't have "China" in it, it is likely to have "Taiwan," thus eroding the island's connection with the mainland and in practice strengthening Taiwan independence, certainly something China doesn't want. Would such a development be to the benefit of Beijing, which says it wants "peaceful reunification" between the mainland and Taiwan in the long run? Perhaps more importantly, will such a humiliation by China help or hinder the China-friendly political party, the Kuomintang, in its attempt to return to power in Taiwan in 2020 or 2024?

Thousands urged to flee as Calif. river threatens to flood

Jane Onyanga-Omara , USA TODAY Published 4:10 a.m. ET Jan. 11, 2017 | Updated 5 hours ago

About 2,000 people in a rural California community near Sacramento were asked to leave their homes Tuesday as a river swollen by days of heavy rain threatened to flood, while north of San Francisco thousands more were urged to seek higher ground. USA TODAY NETWORK Thousands of people in Northern California were urged to flee their homes as a river threatened to burst its banks Wednesday. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department advised about 2,000 people in Wilton — a rural community near Sacramento — to consider evacuating Tuesday evening, as a Cosumnes River levee in Sacramento County was projected to overflow its banks Wednesday. Emergency crews and officials were trying to bolster the levee. The Red Cross opened two evacuation centers in the area, one in neighboring Elk Grove. However, some residents planned to stay put. “We have no concerns,” Lill Nichols, who with her husband runs a horse farm near the river, told the Sacramento Bee. “We have animals and can’t evacuate anyway.” No relief: Storms continue to slam West with snow, rain, wind Sacramento County emergency services official Mary Jo Flynn said water was expected to spill over the levee, flooding low-lying roads and buildings with up to 1 foot of water. She said many of the homes along the path of a possible flood are built on berms or sit on relatively higher ground. The Cosumnes River is the only river in the western Sierra without major dam control, KXTV reported. Tim Chappell, who manages the Kautz Vineyard in Wilton, said he remembered the damage from the great flood of 1997. "Literally, you could not see the vines. It just looked like an ocean," Chappell told KXTV. "At this time, we're fine. Another foot and you know we'll be in more danger." “The water is crazy powerful,” he added. “Looking at it, watching it. But the sound of it, especially when it breaks ... it's got a really hurting sound to it.” Contributing: The Associated Press

McCain’s Largely Unreported Treachery Against the US

Wayne MADSEN | 06.01.2017 |

Arizona’s recently re-elected Republican senator John McCain, along with his faithful «drama queen» accomplice South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham, recently met with a contingent of Ukrainian troops at a «forward combat zone» in Shyrokyne in eastern Ukraine and publicly questioned president-elect Donald Trump’s plans to defrost America’s chilly relations with Russia. For McCain, his return to his personal war front in Ukraine came three years after he stood with Ukrainian neo-Nazis and fascists on Kiev’s Maidan Square calling for the ouster of president Viktor Yanukovych. Meanwhile, McCain, Graham, and their neo-conservative allies within the Republican and Democratic parties, as well as press outlets like The Washington Post, have questioned Trump’s ultimate loyalty to the United States. The neocons’ angst arises from their anger over the incoming president wisely doubting the efficacy of Central Intelligence Agency «intelligence» linking Russia to a spate of computer penetrations of U.S. computer systems and networks, including pre-election hacks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and private email of Hillary Clinton’s top campaign officials. After President Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats from Washington, DC and San Francisco and shut down two Russian diplomatic compounds in Maryland and New York in retaliation for unproven Russian government involvement in the hacking, McCain and his neocon war hawks doubled down by claiming that Russian hacking of U.S. computer systems amounted to an «act of war». Seizing on the neocons’ war frenzy, the CIA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that Russian hackers had penetrated the electrical power grid operated by Vermont’s Burlington Electric. The Washington Post, owned by Amazon billionaire and CIA cloud computing contractor Jeff Bezos, echoed the grid hacking story as factual. There was only one problem with the Russian electrical grid hacking headline: it was not true. Burlington Electric revealed that a laptop computer in the possession of a Burlington Electric employee, which allegedly was infected by a malware program linked by the U.S. government to Russian hackers, was never connected to the Vermont electrical grid. The laptop contained a hackers’ software package called Neutrino, which is not linked, in any way, to Russia. An attempt by the «Amazon Post» and the war hawks to pin the Vermont grid story on Russia and link it to the DNC hacking fell flat on its face. Burlington Electric issued a statement on December 30, 2016, identifying DHS as the «boy who cried wolf» that issued the same «Russian malware» scare to electric utilities across the United States. The statement read, «Last night, U.S. utilities were alerted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of a malware code used in Grizzly Steppe, the name DHS has applied to a Russian campaign linked to recent hacks. We acted quickly to scan all computers in our system for the malware signature. We detected the malware in a single Burlington Electric Department laptop not connected to our organization’s grid systems». It turned out that Ukraine, the country where McCain, Graham, and Minnesota’s rather myopic Democratic senator Amy Klobuchar were kibitzing with army troops and neo-Nazi armed militia members over the holidays, was the source of the malware hacking program used to hack into DNC computers. The Washington Post was also forced to shamefully retract its grid hacking story. The episode was yet another example of the haste at which the outgoing Obama administration and the neocon toadies in the Republican Party led by McCain were apt to blame any bad news on «the Russians». It was as if the Cold War witch hunter senator Joseph McCarthy had met the Keystone Kops. The situation would have been funny had it not been for the fact that the actions of Obama and the neocons propelled the world closer to cataclysmic warfare with the likes of McCain, Graham, and others beating the war drums. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and DHS amateurishly coined the alleged Russian hacking of the DNC computers with the cover term «Grizzly Steppe», a code phrase that would have been rejected by any legitimate Hollywood movie script writer as being too cartoonish and campy. Moreover, the malware used in the hacking of the Democrats’ computers was an antiquated version of PHP, a program originally designed for personal home pages, hence the abbreviation PHP, but which now stands for «PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor». The PHP malware was found to be freely distributed by a Ukrainian hacker group as a hackers’ tool. Although the FBI, DHS, and CIA did not bother to investigate whether the Ukrainian hackers were linked to McCain’s and Graham’s friends in the Ukrainian intelligence service, the Ukrainians would have had every reason to initiate a further damaging fracture in relations between the United States and Russia. Furthermore, the Ukrainians could have availed themselves of «network weaving» tools to run their malware through servers in Russia. In fact, the amateurish FBI/DHS «Grizzly Steppe» report found that the Ukrainian malware, later blamed on the Russians, had passed through the IP [Internet Protocol] addresses of 389 organizations in 61 different countries. None of the 389 malware pass-through IPs, including those of the University of Michigan; University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York; Datasource AG in Ingmarso, Sweden; Hunenberg, Switzerland; Kustbandet AB in Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria; Voxility S.R.L. of Bucharest; and Amazon.com – the company owned by none other than Washington Post owner and CIA contractor Mr. Bezos! – were linked to the Russian government. These include the United States, Ukraine, Russia, China, France, Germany, Seychelles, Moldova, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Montenegro, Romania, and Israel. Such a rich global network, which included several TOR anonymous browsing gateways, would have provided more than ample network weaving opportunities to mask the original Ukrainian digital fingerprints on the actual hacking of DNC computers. The malware program, called P.A.S. version 3.1.7., is contained in a web shell of PHP code. The malware program states that it is «Made in Ukraine» and the date of the program, 2011-2016 is followed by the letters «UA,» the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) two-letter code for Ukraine In eastern Ukraine, standing alongside a camouflage-festooned chocolate mogul president Petro Poroshenko, McCain and Graham accused Russia of «attacking» the United States, with Graham accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of «hacking our election». Both called for increased sanctions against Russia. However, the sum-total of computer security knowledge of these two Republican fossils would not exceed that possessed by a kindergarten student in Arizona or South Carolina. Rather than accuse other Americans, including Mr. Trump, of engaging in potentially treasonous activities, perhaps Mr. McCain should recall the charges made by several U.S. prisoners-of-war about his «singing» to his North Vietnamese captors after his plane was shot down over Hanoi in October 1967. McCain, according to some fellow POWs who later spoke out, gladly gave his captors about six months’ worth of U.S. Navy operational plans for the bombing of North Vietnam and Laos. McCain’s psychosis about Russia reportedly could stem from his time at the «Hanoi Hilton» POW prison. McCain was given the Russian KGB code name «Jack Mouse» and, per Chan Chong Duet, the commander of the prison, the downed Navy pilot and son of the U.S. Pacific Forces Commander, Admiral John McCain, Jr., was quite free with the information he passed to North Vietnamese, Cuban, and Soviet officers while being treated for his wounds by Soviet doctors. If McCain wants to question the loyalty of any American, he should look into a mirror. He should also seek out psychiatric assistance.

New data suggest Agent Orange causing horrific third generation birth defects Vietnam vets are passing to their grandkids

Sunday, January 08, 2017 by: S.D. Wells

(NaturalNews) What’s the “Agent Orange curse?” True story: As veterans of the Vietnam war die off from cancer and other diseases and disorders they got from the incredibly toxic defoliant Agent Orange, the nightmare is not over, because research is revealing their children and grandchildren, who were never exposed to the pesticide, have birth defects that were passed on through their parents and grandparent’s affected genes. That’s the Agent Orange curse, and it can cause much more detriment than cancer, as if that weren’t enough, including heart disease, fibromyalgia, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, spinal problems, autism, and birth defects like missing limbs, extra limbs, malformed limbs, speech difficulties, cleft lip palate, crooked fingers and webbed toes. Sadly, the US government is trying to cover it all up, waiting for the vets to die off, thinking the whole chronic nightmare will fade away, but it’s not fading at all. Vietnam vets believe billions of dollars lie at the heart of why their claims have gone unexamined by the US government and Veterans Affairs First of all, compensating veterans for all their health problems inflicted by the haphazard spreading of and treading through toxic pesticides in Vietnam costs tens of billions of dollars a year, but now we’re talking about compensating the vets’ kids and grandkids, who are grown up or growing up with horrific medical conditions that aren’t going away or getting any better. If the link between Agent Orange and their children’s conditions is proven by science, we’re talking billions more. How does the VA ignore all these legitimate claims? Answer: the nefarious “Dr. Orange” For decades now, the VA and the military have relied on one chemical-industry shill’s assessment of whether Agent Orange caused health detriment to our veterans. A man by the name of Alvin L. Young headed up a government sanctioned plan to destroy evidence of any connection between aircrafts that spread agent orange and veteran’s sicknesses, and to ward off journalists that ask questions through their investigations. Young functions as a “consultant” and an “expert” on herbicides who guides the stance of the military and U.S. Department of Veterans in their mass denial of benefits and compensation to the thousands of suffering soldiers, and now their children and grandchildren too. Agent Orange herbicides were so destructive they could burn down brush and foliage where the enemy was hiding, and the U.S. even dumped the poison into rivers, streams, and waterways to infect the food and drinking water, knowing good and well the toxic effects of the orange nightmare that contains the lethal chemical dioxin. Young, nicknamed by Vietnam veterans as “Dr. Orange,” even developed a plan to destroy Agent Orange a decade later. Young’s claim for decades? Few veterans were exposed and the doses were too small to harm them. He has said on record that some vets are just “freeloaders” who are making up ailments to “cash in” on the VA’s compensation program. The VA repeatedly cites Young’s work as if it is the “be-all end-all” scientific conclusion to every case brought to them, saving the government millions, if not billions of dollars, while all these soldiers, their kids, and their grandkids suffer and go broke trying to pay their medical care bills. Now, frustrated veterans, top government officials and respected scientists contend that Young’s self-labeled “investigations” are without merit, omit key facts, and worse yet, were funded by none other than Monsanto Co. and Dow Chemical Co.–the actual manufacturers of agent orange. Alvin Young is nothing more than a huckster and a shill who’s regurgitating research lies to save corporations from getting sued. Even prominent experts on dioxin from NIH say his talk about dioxin is “in no way accurate.” Young is not even qualified to make conclusions about human health effects. An emeritus professor at Columbia University and an Agent Orange researcher says Young and the VA repeatedly clash with any concerted effort to study health effects from agent orange exposure and they even try to keep studies from being conducted, and have been doing so ever since the sick and dying soldiers returned from the Vietnam War. The “color orange” runs through the veins of Vietnam Vets like poison. Veterans now believe that the birth defects can even skip a generation, passing over their children but then affecting their grandchildren. Now, here comes the rub: What pesticide ingredients do you think are in conventional food today? GMO food delivers a small amount of Agent Orange ingredients into your blood and mutates your cells over time. How long that mutation of cells takes to overwhelm one of your vital organs, or strangulate your lungs or your brain is just a matter of how much of it you eat, how often, and for how long. Glyphosate is now regularly sprayed on conventional crops like wheat and sugar cane as a drying agent. Glyphosate, which makes up about 50% of the Roundup herbicide, has been proven through vigorous laboratory research to cause horrific tumors and other cancers in laboratory animals. Most genetically engineered foods like corn, soy, and canola contain some of the same herbicide ingredients as agent orange, namely glyphosate and dioxin. Do you and your children eat “agent orange” corn and soy? These popular GM foods are made and sprayed by Monsanto and Dow Chemical, don’t you know?

Head Holistic MD at Cleveland Clinic Threatened By Hospital For Writing Vaccine Danger Piece

By Erin Elizabeth - January 8, 2017

Daniel Neides, MD, MBA is the Medical Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute. This holistic doctor has won countless awards and is one of the most respected holistic MDs in the US. Dr Neides penned a well written piece on Cleveland.com about the real dangers of vaccine adjuvants which included carcinogens (causing cancer). The article is linked below. It was posted last week and had thousands of reads and someone sent it my way. Today, Sunday, January 8th, I did a live video on it this afternoon and the article worked fine at the time I began the feed. Then my video went viral (47,000 live viewers) and somwhere during that time the article on the popular site Cleveland.com disappeared. Cleveland.com has added a disclaimer now to their own article that it reappeared shortly after our long video. Here’s what they stated: “Please note: This column was inexplicably removed from cleveland.com for a few hours, but has now been restored in it’s entirety” We had several troll sites send over their minions to our page during our live video and don’t know if it was an overload of people looking at the article, an intentional take down or just.. one big’ ole coincidence. But it gets worse. Now the good doctor has been threatened by Cleveland Clinic that they will take disciplinary action against him, but aren’t sure what they’re going to do to him at this time (just… wow!) From the publication: The Clinic responded by doubling down on its disavowal of Neides’ column, saying that the health system is “fully committed to evidence-based medicine,” and promising to take disciplinary action against Neides. Clinic officials have not yet determined what that action will be, according to a spokeswoman Gee, will it be 40 lashes? Let’s just hope this holistic MD doesn’t end up dead like so many other holistic doctors (including his own colleagues – one AT THE SAME HOSPITAL!) who spoke out against vaccines the last year (some of whom were our friends) The award winning holistic MD and writer is the head of the Cleveland Clinic famous Wellness Center (he writes extensively on alternative medicine) and now he’ll be ‘disciplined’ for what exactly? Expressing his opinion? Of course the allegedly alternative Cleveland Clinic (which has talked about vegan, holistic and alternative diets and health care for years) immediately said they didn’t agree with him on his vaccine article and then Dr Niedes publicly apologized. All links supporting this 100% factual information as evidenced in the links below. Check out the video above as it did get a bit intense. Until next time! Erin Elizabeth

A Hate to Kill and Die for

2017/01/09 by Raymond Ibrahim

Muslim attacks on Christian churches are on the rise all around the world—including in America. The worst occurred last month when a bomb exploded in Egypt’s St. Peter’s Cathedral, killing 28, mostly women and children. Preliminary investigations had indicated that a woman entered the church, sat in the women’s section, and then left an unattended purse that later detonated. Later reports asserted that, although others were involved, including one Muslim woman, a male suicide-bomber was the chief culprit (graphic pictures of his remains here). How much hate must a woman have to enter a church, smile in the faces of Christians, pretend to be worshipping alongside them—here’s a similar example from Turkey—and then knowingly leave a bomb precisely where it would kill mostly women and children? How much hate must a man have for people who are peacefully praying that, in order to kill as many of them, he is willing to kill himself? The answer is an unfathomable—and, to Western and Christian minds, unbelievable—amount of hate. Yet the wonder isn’t that the church was bombed but rather that many are surprised by it. After all, many Muslim scriptures, clerics, mosques, schools, satellite stations and Internet sites—even the ministry of education—openly incite hatred for Egypt’s indigenous (but “infidel”) inhabitants: the Christian Copts. Among other forms of animosity, they teach that Muslims must hate—and show that they hateChristians, even if they are their own wives. Worse, they teach that the most abominable crimes in God’s sight—“worse than murder and bloodshed”—take place inside churches: there, Christians flaunt their rejection of Islam’s core doctrine of tawhid (“monotheism”) by ascribing partners to God (shirk) via their worship of the Trinity. This is why some of Islam’s most revered ulema (scholars) describe churches as “worse than bars and brothels” and “dens of iniquity” which “breed corruption throughout the lands” (see Crucified Again, pgs. 32-36). Modern Egyptian clerics constantly echo these hateful slanders. In August 2009, Al Azhar’s Dar al-Ifta issued a fatwa likening the building of a church to “a nightclub, a gambling casino, or building a barn for rearing pigs, cats or dogs.” In July 2012, Dr. Yassir al-Burhami, Egypt’s leading Salafi, issued a fatwa forbidding Muslim taxi and bus drivers from transporting Christian clergy to their churches, an act “more forbidden than taking someone to a liquor bar.” When the Islamic State launched a suicide attack on a packed church in Baghdad in 2011—killing about 60 Christians (graphic images of aftermath here)—it justified the massacre by portraying the church as a “dirty den of idolatry.” But it’s not just ISIS and “radical” clerics that harbor such animosity for churches. After the fatal bombing inside St. Peter’s, “everyday” Muslims wrote things like “God bless the person who did this blessed act” on social media. One average looking Muslim woman appears in the streets of Egypt jubilantly celebrating the massacre (video with English subtitles). She triumphantly yells “Allahu Akbar!” and says that “our beloved prophet Muhammad is paying you infidels [Christians] back… for rejecting tawhid, which must be proclaimed in every corner of Egypt!” Americans may remember that Muslims around the world also celebrated the terror strikes of September 11. Then, the assumption was “we must’ve done something to make Muslims hate us so much.” But if powerful America is capable of provoking Muslims with its foreign policies, what did Egypt’s already downtrodden and ostracized Christian minority do to make Muslims celebrate the news that a church was bombed and Christians blown to pieces? In other words, the hate is everywhere and on open display for those with eyes and ears to see and hear with. It’s a regular feature of the West nowadays for Muslims to go on church vandalizing sprees (here’s a video of one from Rome). Indeed, the ongoing desecration of churches, crucifixes, and Christian icons at the hands of Muslims is so virulent that—from the earliest writings of Islam (see Athanasius of Sinai’s 7th century chronicles) till today—it continues to be described as the “work of Satan’s offspring.” In Egypt the hate is usually simmering below the line of what is deemed newsworthy and only reaches the West when Muslim piety boils over and leaves a trail of carnage in its wake.Amateur” attacks on churches that fail to claim lives, or Muslims abusing, kidnapping, beating, raping—and sometimes even murdering[1]—Christians, are habitual occurrences in Egypt and other Muslim majority nations that rarely get reported in the West. Yet the fact remains: the animus that regularly causes large Muslim mobs to attack and/or torch buildings on the mere rumor that they are being used as churches, causes more zealous Muslims to bomb churches. These latter—the professional jihadis and “martyrs”—believe themselves to be the greatest allies of God. They cite the Islamic doctrine of al-wala’ wa’l-bara’ (“Loyalty an Enmity”), which is based on a number of Koran verses. It teaches that the best way for a Muslim to proclaim his loyalty to Islam (submission to Allah and adherence to Muhammad’s teachings) is by showing and exercising hate for those who reject it. The most supreme way of living this hate is by becoming a jihadi—killing and being killed, as Koran 9:111 puts it: “Allah has bought from the believers their lives and worldly goods, and in return has promised them Paradise: they shall fight in the way of Allah and shall kill and be killed…. Rejoice then in the bargain you have struck, for that is the supreme triumph.” Whenever Muslims kill Christians for their faith, eulogies for the latter—including for St. Peter’s 28 slain—often invoke the words of Christ: “The time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God” (John 16:2). Not only is this verse prophetic; it’s key to understanding why Christians are under attack throughout the Muslim world: Their persecutors truly “think they are offering a service to God” by killing Christians. And they believe this, not because they are “radical” or have “perverted” the teachings of Islam, but because the impostor god of Islam tells them so. [1] The other day a Muslim man crept up behind a Christian store owner in Egypt and slit his throat for selling alcohol, which is forbidden Muslims. Because no English language media had mentioned it at the time I saw it on Arabic news media, I translated it here.

Winter tightens its deadly grip around the Northern Hemisphere killing dozens in Europe as parts of Russia hit minus 50C minus 58F

As winter tightens its grip around the Northern Hemisphere plunging temperatures have been blamed for dozens of deaths in Europe with a cold front moving in. The plunging temperatures have affected countries as far south as Greece Spain and Turkey causing chaos to the unprepared Mediterranean countries. The UK is bracing itself for the next big storm coming in from the Atlantic which will bring with it dangerous winds high seas, and from Friday we could see snow in many places, showers are more likely to be snow than rain. 'Next weekend the UK could be into minus double figures overnight, so a big change in the weather on the way and possibly the coldest spell of winter so far.' Meanwhile as winter takes hold in the North with parts of Russia and Greenland hitting minus 50C the high summer has hit Australia with temperatures well above 40C on the West coast, see chart above. In the US Temperatures will continue to plunge to dangerously low and damaging levels into Monday in the wake of the snowstorm over the southern United States. Those without power in the wake of the winter storm could face additional hardship due to the severe cold. The extremely low temperatures will increase the risk of frozen pipes. Despite sunshine, travel will remain slick and hazardous on untreated roads and sidewalks in the Carolinas. Snow and ice will be slow to melt into Monday due to persistent subfreezing temperatures. Life-threatening flooding will continue to wallop northern and central California into the middle of the week. Several moisture-laden storms will crash onto the California coast, unleashing torrential rainfall and significant snow into Wednesday. The first wave of heavy rain pushed across California on Sunday. "Periods of rain and mountain snow will follow on Monday, especially in north-western California and the Sierra, before the next heavier round slams into northern and central California Tuesday into Tuesday night," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

FBI Quietly Releases 300 Pages Of Hillary Clinton Investigation Records

Chuck Ross Reporter 7:35 PM 01/08/2017

The FBI quietly released nearly 300 pages of records from its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server on Sunday night. This is the fifth release of Clinton investigation records from the FBI. The documents deal with the handling of computer hardware collected from Clinton’s lawyers for the investigation and also contain emails from FBI officials discussing the classification of Clinton’s emails. The FBI has previously released notes from interviews it conducted during its investigation of Clinton’s handling of classified information. FBI director James Comey declined to recommend that Clinton be charged in the case, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch accepted that advice. The emails included in the documents are from the months prior to the formal opening of the Clinton email probe, which occurred on July 10, 2015. The exchanges show disagreements between the FBI and State Department over whether some of Clinton’s personal emails should be classified. In one April 27, 2015 email, an FBI official wrote to other officials that they were “about to get drug into an issue on classification” of Clinton’s emails. The official, whose name is redacted, said that the State Department was “forum shopping,” or seeking a favorable opinion on the classification issue by asking different officials to rate emails as unclassified. Other email traffic sheds light on a controversy involving State Department under secretary for management Patrick Kennedy and a request he made in 2015 that the FBI reduce its classification of a Clinton email related to the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi. Clinton investigation notes released by the FBI in October showed that an FBI official said during an interview as part of the email probe that Kennedy asked him and others at the FBI to relax classifications on some emails. (RELATED: State Dept. Official Wanted Clinton Email Reclassified Because It ‘Caused Problems’) The new FBI release contains a May 21, 2015 email in which Michael Steinbach, the FBI’s assistant director of the counterterrorism division, detailed a conversation he had with Kennedy about the classification issue. Steinbach said that the FBI had determined that one of Clinton’s emails should be classified using b(1) and b(7) redactions, used to protect information in the interest of national defense and to prevent the disclosure of a confidential source, respectively. Kennedy asked Steinbach to classify the email using only the b(1) category. An email sent two days earlier from a separate FBI official provided more information about the dispute. The official, whose name is redacted, wrote that the Clinton email was redacted and classified on the rationale that it contained information that would cause “interference with foreign relations.” The FBI official wrote that the email could disclose sources and investigative methods used by the bureau. “While the email does not name the particular official, this might be deduced and, given the threat of violence in the region, any surmise could be fatal for whoever cooperated with us,” the official wrote. “State will say no one will know if it is redacted, but that is not how classification works,” they added. The official wrote that he informed Kennedy of that rationale and that Kennedy said he would be in contact with Steinbach. The FBI release also includes an email from the attorney of Bryan Pagliano, the Hillary Clinton State Department aide who set up and managed her secret email server. In the email, Mark MacDougall, Pagliano’s lawyer, informed the FBI that Pagliano would decline the bureau’s request for an investigation. Pagliano would eventually meet with the FBI in December, but only after receiving limited immunity from the Department of Justice.

Mexico's Week-Long Protests over Gas Hikes Spread to 25 States

Published 8 January 2017

The massive protests against the neoliberal measures of the Mexican government began their eighth day Sunday. A new wave of protests against a hike in gas prices in Mexico began Sunday, as the nationwide mobilizations enter its second week and spread to at least 25 states. Because of the protests, that are blocking highways throughout Mexico, freeways in California are being affected and some are again being closed Sunday night. The southbound 5 and 805 freeways which lead to the San Ysidro Port of Entry are being closed, according to the California Highway Patrol. Cars that are traveling to Mexico will have to go via 905 Freeway to the Otay Mesa Port of Entry. On Saturday, thousands marched across 15 of 31 states in the country and the Federal District. Among the largest demonstrations were 20,000 protesters who gathered in Puebla, 5,000 in Guadalajara and 1,000 in Tapachula. Since the protests broke out beginning on Jan. 1, clashes between police and protesters and looting have left six people dead, 1,500 arrested, 420 businesses affected and several roads blocked. The government of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto announced in the last week of December that the price of gasoline would spike by 20 percent and diesel by 16 percent. Peña Nieto has said that the price hikes are the only option available and that the cost changes respond to international prices and are not a result of his neoliberal reforms. However, despite the international prices Peña Nieto referred to, 40 countries around the world have not increased gas prices, and seven nations have lowered them, according to a report by Global Petrol Prices. The hike in Mexico’s gasoline and diesel is the fifth largest in the world, only topped by Zambia with 32.7 percent, Egypt with 30.6, and Georgia and Malaysia with 20.6 percent each, according to the same organization. The change in Mexico boosted the average price for a liter of premium gasoline to almost a dollar. That makes 4 liters, or about a gallon, equal to nearly as much as Mexico's minimum wage for a day's work, about US$4.

US would shoot down North Korean ballistic missile test if it threatens territory, allies, Carter says

Carter says US may shoot down North Korean missile test

Monday, 9 Jan 2017 | 7:42 AM ET | 00:37

North Korea's nuclear weapons capabilities and ballistic missile defense programs constitute a "serious threat" to the United States, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Sunday. The United States is prepared to shoot down a North Korean missile launch or test "if it were coming towards our territory or the territory of our friends and allies," Carter said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press." North Korea declared on Sunday it can test-launch an intercontinental ballistic missile at any time from any location set by leader Kim Jong Un, saying a hostile U.S. policy is to blame for its arms development. Kim said on Jan. 1 that his nuclear-capable country was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). "The ICBM will be launched anytime and anywhere determined by the supreme headquarters of the DPRK," an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman was quoted as saying by the official KCNA news agency, using the acronym for the country's name. The North is formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The United States said on Jan. 5 that North Korea had demonstrated a "qualitative" improvement in its nuclear and missile capabilities after an unprecedented level of tests last year. North Korea has been testing rocket engines and heat-shields for an ICBM while developing the technology to guide a missile after re-entry into the atmosphere following a lift-off, experts have said. While Pyongyang is close to a test, it is likely to take some years to perfect the weapon, according to the experts. Once fully developed, a North Korean ICBM could threaten the continental United States, which is around 9,000 km (5,500 miles) from the North. ICBMs have a minimum range of about 5,500 km (3,400 miles), but some are designed to travel 10,000 km (6,200 miles) or further. U.S. President-elect Donald Trump responded to Kim's comments on an ICBM test by declaring in a tweet last week that "It won't happen!" A U.S. State Department spokesman said last week that the United States does not believe that North Korea is capable of mounting a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile. North Korea has been under U.N. sanctions since 2006 over its nuclear and ballistic missile tests. The sanctions were tightened last month after Pyongyang conducted its fifth and largest nuclear test on Sept. 9. "The U.S. is wholly to blame for pushing the DPRK to have developed ICBM as it has desperately resorted to anachronistic policy hostile toward the DPRK for decades to encroach upon its sovereignty and vital rights," KCNA quoted the spokesman as saying. "Anyone who wants to deal with the DPRK would be well advised to secure a new way of thinking after having clear understanding of it," the spokesman said, according to KCNA.

US Destroyer Fired Warning Shots At Four Iranian Vessels In Strait Of Hormuz

by Tyler Durden Jan 9, 2017 7:47 AM

In the latest dangerously close encounter between US and Iranian navies, Reuters reports that a U.S. Navy destroyer fired three warning shots at four of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels on Sunday after they closed in at a high rate of speed in the Strait of Hormuz, according to two U.S. defense officials. The Reuters sources said that the USS Mahan established radio communication with the boats but they did not respond to requests to slow down. The Navy destroyer fired warning flares and a U.S. Navy helicopter also dropped a smoke float. The Iranian vessels came within 900 yards (800 meters) of the Mahan, which was escorting two other U.S. ships. The last such encounter in which a US navy ship fired warning shots at Iranian vessels took place last August, when the USS Nitze fired three warning shots after a "harassing" Iranian fast-attack craft approached and circled two U.S. Navy ships and a Kuwaiti vessel in the northern Gulf. The U.S. ship fired the shots into the water after the Iranian ship did not leave after a brief radio conversation. The Iranian vessels had moved at high speed toward the Nitze, which allegedly was operating in accordance with international law in international waters and ignored maritime "rules of the road" as set out in the 1972 Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. According to the Navy official, the IRGC vessels ignored multiple warnings, creating a dangerous, harassing environment that could have pushed the Nitze to take defensive measures, escalating the situation. At the time, Iran's defense minister insinuated that the incident occurred inside Iranian territory. “Naturally these boats constantly monitor the developments and foreign vessels’ movements and naturally this happens in the waters of our own country. If any foreign vessel enters our waters, we will give them a warning and if it is an act of aggression, we will confront them,” he said. It is unclear if today's incident took place in international waters. As a reminder, there are temporarily no US aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf region at this moment, or anywhere else around the world for that matter.

For you techies.

By Chet Sapino

I can install a product on my web browser (Firefox) which masks my ip address. It’s called “hide my IP.” It hides my IP and I can change it to anywhere in the world to appear I’m originating from say Moscow. It travels through 72 anonymous gateway servers worldwide so no one can trace where it actually came from, since my original IP from Time Warner 24.59.227.212 has been obliterated and changed to one in a foreign country. I can install in 1 minute and turn it on or off off in a mouse click. There are 24,000 users of this add-in. You can select your starting server as Moscow Server #1, #2 or #3 or any of thirty countries of origin. If someone tries to trace it, the trace will end up at Moscow #1 while I am sitting here in Syracuse, NY as the originator. The trace gives the latitude and longitude of the server in Moscow. Watch this one minute demo at http://hide-my-ip.org/  This is pretty cool! It costs $11.62.

There is a free add-in for Firefox called X anonymous which works very well. I tested it on my web server and it showed that I originated from the Netherlands at ip address 146.185.28.61 when I logged onto my web server. If you have a web server with a lot of volume, you are going to have tens of thousands of these ip’s to sift through. It would be almost impossible to trace who actually hacked the web site. The only way you could catch them would be if you looked at your log file the instant you were being attacked. But their IP could be masked like I explained above and you would get an erroneous trace. So do you think the Russian cyber experts are that stupid to leave a trace to Moscow? Really! Or to the Kremlin?

Wikileaks “hacked” emails show unequivocally that there was no actual “hack” enabling the person to get all those emails. The hacker person sent what is known as a “phishing email” asking Podesta, head of the DNC to log into his email accounts because there’s something wrong with it and it needed immediate attention. These emails can be created by a ten year old showing an exact copy of the email login page for the email service like say Time Warners login page. They just copy and paste in Time Warner’s email login page into an email and type a scary story in it. The person who is getting hacked adds his email and password into the page and hits the Submit button thinking they are accessing their email account when they are emailing his info right back to the “hacker” who changed the code in the Submit button to be emailed it back to him So now the person can go to say Time Warner put in Podesta’s email and password and get access to every email and every email address in the DNC on Podesta’s account. Then he sends everybody else the same phishing email and if they fall for it, gets all their passwords and email addresses also. He can then print every one of the emails out for a lot of the DNC personnel. Wikileaks emails showed Podesta emailed his DNC IT manager person and asked for his email password. Then he plugged it in the phished email screen and sent it back to the hacker.

I get these phishing emails quite frequently. I just got one from Netflix saying my account has been suspended and would I please login and check it. It looked so real that I almost logged into it. The thing looked like it came from Romania. If you hover your mouse over the sender’s email address, it shows you where it came from and it was not coming from Netflix. There was a .ro at the end of it. Even then it could be masked.

So much for the Russian hackers that hacked the DNC. I’ve been working in IT since 1994 and know a lot about this stuff.

See this from Fortune Magazine website: http://fortune.com/2016/12/31/russian-hacking-grizzly-steppe/  from security experts who say the report is fatally flawed. I listened to a security expert on FoxNews yesterday and he said these people didn’t even know how to express technology – that is was all jumbled up in the report. He said the report linked technology used like you would link tomatoes and alligators. It was a joke.

One has to ask the question as to why The Obama Administration, Clapper and Comey might ant to start a war with Putin just when trump is taking office?

he lie started this way:

1. We suspect the Russians

2. The Russians did it

3. Putin ordered it

Putin admitted it was his orders to change the election results

It is a false story until all the raw data is released showing how it was traced to Putin and it on’t be, under the guise it is classified. I don’t trust a single thing coming from this group.

Trump has his own cybersecurity persons in his transition team that are going to look into this.

ISIS supporter truck driver kills 4 in Israel - govt

2017-01-08 21:00

Jerusalem - A Palestinian on Sunday rammed a truck into a group of Israeli soldiers visiting a popular tourist spot in Jerusalem, killing four and injuring at least 15 people, authorities said. The driver was also killed at the location overlooking holy sites in the Old City such as the Dome of the Rock and providing one of the most spectacular views of Jerusalem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu alleged the attacker "supported" the Islamic State group, though he provided no details on what led to the finding. Chaos broke out at the scene when the truck ploughed through the crowd, with hundreds of soldiers having arrived there as part of a tour for troops about the history of Jerusalem. "A lone terrorist drove his truck into a group of soldiers standing on the side of the road," said police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld. "They got off the bus and as they were getting off and getting organised, he took advantage." Israel's military said one of its soldiers fired on the attacker and distributed video of him saying he shot after realising it was not an accident. Multiple bullet holes could be seen in the windshield of the truck. Police only confirmed four people were dead, but a medic at the scene said they were soldiers. Medics also reported that three of the victims were women, while all four were in their 20s. Ambulances rushed to the location and visitors, including soldiers, ran for cover. Netanyahu later visited the scene along with Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman. "We know the identity of the assailant, who according to all indications supported ISIS," Netanyahu said, according to a statement from his office. Fawzi Barhum, a spokesperson for Islamist movement Hamas which runs the Gaza Strip, saluted the attack, calling it "heroic and brave". Palestinian security officials in the West Bank city of Ramallah said the driver was a Palestinian in his late 20s from the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Jabal Mukaber, located close to the scene. Rosenfeld said it was not yet clear if the attack had been planned earlier or was spontaneous.

Israeli Police Commissioner Preparing His Department for Messiah

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 2, 2017 , 12:30 pm

Roni Alsheikh, the Israeli Commissioner of Police, announced last week that his department of law enforcement personnel is preparing for the arrival of the Messiah in a truly unique way. Alsheikh was filmed at a celebration held by Chabad Hasidim in his neighborhood of Givat Shmuel, not far from Tel Aviv, in honor of the 19th of the Hebrew month Kislev. “We, the police, are very involved in strengthening the mitzvot (Bible commandments) between man and his fellow,” announced Alsheikh at the gathering. “When the Messiah comes, everyone will want to [approach] him so it will get very crowded,” predicted the commissioner. “That will be a time when we will have to be very strong in respecting our fellow.” In describing the very important role the Israeli police will play upon Messiah’s arrival, Alsheikh said to the joyous Hasidim gathered, “Not only are we busy enforcing the law, we also try to enact preventative measures [regarding] how to strengthen mutual consideration for our fellow.” The 19th of Kislev is considered the New Year of Hasidut by many Hasidic Jews, commemorating Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi’s release from prison in 1798. Rabbi Shneur Zalman is considered by many to be the first leader of the Chabad movement, a group dedicated to Jewish outreach and tightening the bond between mankind as commanded by God. Alsheikh was ascribing a function to the police that is incumbent upon everyone, stated as a Biblical commandment in Leviticus. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am Hashem. Leviticus 19:18 The commissioner’s message and its strong connection to the Chabad movement and Hassidut was well-received by the revelers. The police force’s mission to focus on the Biblical requirement of ‘love your fellow’ is timely indeed. The holiday of Hanukkah, which ended on Sunday, commemorates the Maccabees’ victory over the Greeks and their triumph over the Hellenized (assimilated) Jews. At the time, Israel was torn apart by conflict: there was rampant hatred between the Jews, to which rabbis attribute the destruction of the Holy Temple. “There is no doubt that happiness and serving God will bring us closer,” Alsheikh said at the gathering. “Soon, God willing, we will need to start preparing for the security operation necessary upon the arrival of the Messiah.”

The enemy of my enemy: Egypt thaws toward Hamas

With Gaza rulers fighting Salafists, including IS, a partial reconciliation sees Cairo opening a border crossing to allow goods into the Strip

By Avi Issacharoff January 7, 2017, 7:52 am

High-ranking Israeli officials and journalists alike have occasionally found themselves amazed at the waves of curses and vicious invective that Egyptian officials unleash when asked for their views on Hamas. In one recent encounter, a former IDF Southern Command chief had to calm one of his Egyptian counterparts, who was using particularly colorful language to express his views about high-ranking Hamas operatives in Gaza, replete with frequent allusions to their mothers. The Egyptians have never troubled to hide their abhorrence of Hamas, particularly after President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi took office in the summer of 2013. The Egyptian army has since blocked hundreds of tunnels that were dug between Gaza and Sinai and waged all-out war against the smuggling taking place from Egypt to Gaza. But in the new Middle East, everything is possible. It seems that the current Egyptian leadership, the bitter enemy of the Muslim Brotherhood (which it ousted, and of which Hamas is a subsidiary), has decided to change its behavior toward Hamas. This decision stems not from any sudden affection on Egypt’s part for Hamas, but rather from Egypt’s hatred of the Islamic State terror group. This change in direction, which is already visible on the ground, has Israel concerned. Suddenly the Egyptians are opening the Rafah Border Crossing, including for the entry of merchandise. This week, high-ranking Hamas operatives said that former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, the incoming chief of its political wing, was planning a visit to Cairo in the near future — a dramatically symbolic step. Haniyeh, who has lived outside Gaza for months, left Gaza with Egypt’s permission supposedly in order to perform the hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, one of the main duties incumbent on all Muslims. But a great deal of water has flowed through Wadi Gaza since then, and Haniyeh is still abroad, visiting Arab countries and non-Arab Muslim states. Osama Hamdan, Hamas’s official in charge of international relations, has had good reason to speak in media interviews about Hamas’s rapprochement not only with Egypt, but also with Iran. Haniyeh, who won supporters abroad for his election as head of Hamas’s political wing, has also worked to strengthen Hamas’s relationship with various countries in the Muslim world. Eased exits The Egyptians allowed other high-ranking Hamas officials to leave Gaza along with Haniyeh. Among them was Rawhi Mushtaha, 57, a key Hamas operative who is considered one of the closest associates of Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’s strongman in Gaza. Mushtaha, who was released from prison in Israel in 2011 as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal and is considered one of the officials who sets the tone in Hamas, has a great deal of influence over the military wing. Mushtaha, it turns out, took advantage of the opportunity to leave Gaza not only for religious reasons, but also in order to spend time with his young wife, whom he married after 2011. (Photographs of him visiting one of the largest shopping centers in the United Arab Emirates have reached The Times of Israel.) So what led to this shift in the relationship between Hamas and Cairo, this unprecedented reconciliation? The change in direction began with Hamas’s decision to go to war against the Salafist groups in the Gaza Strip. From Hamas’s perspective, the Salafists, including those who identify with Islamic State, have become a real threat — mostly an ideological one, but also a physical one despite their relatively small number in Gaza. (There are roughly 700 to 800 Salafists in Gaza out of a population of approximately two million.) Intermittent rocket fire at Israel by the Salafist groups gave Hamas a major headache, to put it mildly, mainly due to the escalation in Israel’s response in recent months. But the more significant threat is the internal one. As many as 40 members of Hamas have joined various Salafist groups in recent years, and some of them have crossed the border to join Islamic State’s affiliate Sinai Province. Commanders from Hamas’s military wing are also trickling into Sinai Province, including some who are considered experts in their fields, such as the use of anti-tank rockets and large explosive devices. To this we should add the murder of a Palestinian Shiite Muslim by Sunni extremists, as well as the wish to grow closer to Egypt. Hamas began an operation two months ago in which approximately 200 Salafist operatives were arrested throughout the Gaza Strip — some for firing rockets at Israel, and others for engaging in religious-ideological activities that Hamas viewed as a challenge to its rule. While it is not known how many are still being held, the trend is obvious. Since the first ones to be arrested were Salafist operatives who had no connections to Islamic State’s Sinai Province, their arrests did not lead to friction with the neighbors across the border. But when Hamas recently arrested members of Liwa al-Tawheed, who are considered very close to Islamic State, a crisis suddenly erupted. One top Sinai Province operative called Hamas “infidels,” and Sinai Province commanders ordered smugglers in the Rafah sector to cease bringing any goods, principally materials used in Hamas’s military industry, from Sinai to Gaza. While the number of tunnels in the Rafah sector was small to begin with, Islamic State has continued to provide Hamas in recent years with a large amount of dual-purpose materials such as steel cables, drills, pumps and electrodes — items that Israel would not allow into Gaza through the Kerem Shalom Crossing. But several weeks ago, Islamic State operatives contacted the smugglers individually, warning that anyone who allowed the entry of goods into Gaza would pay with his head. (Islamic State also stopped the entry of cigarettes into Gaza for religious reasons; Islamic extremists hold that smoking is forbidden.) This act by Islamic State’s Sinai Province drew a punitive response from Hamas: a halt in the transfer of arms and ammunition from Gaza to Sinai. In addition, Mohammad Ramilat, one of the Sinai Province’s prominent members, who was in Gaza, was arrested two weeks ago in an effort to pressure Islamic State to continue the smuggling. Ongoing cooperation Despite the severe tension between the two groups, at least one aspect of cooperation is still going on, though to a lesser extent, even in moments of crisis: the bringing of wounded members of Islamic State to Gaza. Islamic State has no medical center in Sinai where it can treat members who have been wounded in battle against the Egyptian army. Its only way out, medically speaking, is the Gaza Strip. And so, far beneath the radar, Hamas and Islamic State are keeping up coordination in this area, with the cooperation of well-known physicians in the Gaza Strip. What, then, is pushing Egypt toward the thaw in its relationship with Hamas? First, we should note that in recent months, we witnessed a true crisis in the relationship between Egypt and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The recent elections for the Fatah leadership at the Seventh General Assembly, together with the exclusion of Mohammad Dahlan, Egypt’s ally, led Egypt to distance itself from Fatah as a whole, at least while Abbas is in charge. It was at this point that the first steps toward reconciliation began to be evident, mainly regarding the opening of the Rafah Border Crossing. Still, it became clear recently that this was about far more than an attempt to damage Abbas’s status. It seems that the Egyptians realized that the situation in Gaza was not going to change anytime soon and that they had to deal with it as it was. In other words, Egypt would like to see Hamas fighting against Islamic State’s Sinai Province instead of helping it, working to stop the terror attacks against Egyptian troops in Sinai — attacks that rely on support from the Gaza Strip — and stopping the propaganda against President Sissi that can be seen all over Gaza. In order to do this, Egypt must try to normalize its relations with Hamas. This normalization will involve Egypt’s opening of the Rafah Border Crossing more regularly, granting departure and entry permits to high-ranking Hamas operatives and ordinary residents, and assisting Hamas’s civilian projects. This is why Egypt allowed the entry of construction materials, such as concrete, through the Rafah border crossing. (To no one’s surprise, Hamas’s military wing uses concrete to build tunnels against Israel.) New cars and motorcycles from Egypt were brought into the Gaza Strip along with the concrete. This is the direction in which Egypt plans to move forward with Hamas: official normalization of relations, with Egypt supervising the security aspect. Cairo officials are at least partly aware of the advantages and disadvantages of this move. There can be no doubt that opening the Rafah Border Crossing regularly, for example, will strengthen Hamas at Abbas’s expense and make its rule of Gaza more legitimate. On the other hand, if Hamas should take tougher measures against Islamic State, that could lead to a marked reduction in terror attacks in the Sinai Peninsula by Sinai Province. Hamas officials realize that if Egypt allows high-ranking members such as Haniyeh and Mushtaha freedom of movement, Hamas’s international standing will grow stronger. Perhaps most important of all in the balance of power within Hamas, the leadership in Gaza will be able to take back control from the leadership abroad. And perhaps, just perhaps, Haniyeh, Sinwar and Mushtaha will be the true leaders of Hamas at the expense of Khaled Mashaal and his comrades in Qatar and Turkey.

2017: The Year Of The Truth Bomb - Financial Insider Warns ATM Outages, Bank Holiday And Martial Law May Be Ahead

January 9, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

The new story from Public Radio International reports that Venezuela's military has turned the country's food crisis into a 'racket' and is profiting from the Venezuelan people going hungry. Food long used as a weapon by dictators around the world while their populations suffer, we see '2017 Venezuela' a real world fulfillment of a recent warning from a history professor that we may soon witness 'the fall of civilization'. The recent story from the Daily Mail reports that the rise and fall of civilizations can be predicted by a very simple equation and our civilization is in for a fall some time soon according to Mathematical Historian Professor Peter Turchin from the University of Connecticut. Warning us that his models predicted the rise in political turmoil that started 3 years ago, and that he expects it to reach its peak sometime in the 2020's, he also warns the world we should be prepared for years of turmoil ahead. Claiming that current events place us 'well on track' for instability to peak in the 2020's, we see in his mathematical studies more confirmation of the 'Watchmen's warnings' yet wonder if his predictions of 'turmoil peaking in the 2020's' might be a few years too late. Also claiming that the presidential election of Donald Trump in November "confirms this forecast", we see Trump's upcoming inauguration in 12 days as a very real possible preview of that 'turmoil to come', with anarchists threatening to disrupt the inauguration while preparation takes place at the highest levels for that anarchy with 5000 national guard troops coming to Washington DC on January 20th for Trumps swearing in. With Venezuela's military taking over the food supply there and turning it into a racket, we see how quickly things can come completely undone and as has long been warned, we here in America are not immune to economic contagion and collapse. As financial writer Bill Holter recently predicted, '2017 will be the year of the truth bomb'. Warning us that the Trump presidency will likely see him presiding over a bankruptcy, Holter predicts that the end of 2017 will see an America looking quite unlike what it looks like today, and if his predictions are correct, 2018 will see an America either already in or one year closer to the turmoil warned of by Professor Turchin as also heard in the 1st video below: What will the end of 2017 look like? Holter says, “I don’t think it will even resemble what today looks like. I think you may see the financial system come down, and it may be by the end of the year that the system is coming back up or coming back on line. We are going to have a bank holiday. We are going to have to have some sort of reset. The reset will include a bank holiday. Your ATM won’t work. Your credit cards won’t work. Distribution is going to fail. It’s all about credit. Everything financial and everything economic relies on credit. I believe that we are going to have a credit crisis this year where credit becomes very scarce or actually dries up completely. In that scenario, it is not good. You are talking about distribution breaking down and people going hungry, riots, martial law, cross default from country to country to country to country, bank to bank to bank and broker to broker to broker. Everything runs and lives on credit, and without credit, it’s almost like caveman days.” With Venezuela in chaos, medical supplies and medicines are extremely difficult to come by and as we see in the 3rd video below, a banned video in Venezuela as the government does not allow videos to be taken inside of hospitals in totalitarian 2017 Venezuela, what's happening there should be a huge warning to preppers here. The new story from out of Mexico reports that the country's week long gas crisis has spread to 25 states. Violence and chaos spreading in the streets of Mexico as seen in the 2nd video below, we see more confirmation in Michael Snyder's new story over at the Economic Collapse Blog that the pain being felt in Venezuela and Mexico is being felt by millions of Americans here. Reporting that hundreds more stores are being closed down as America faces a very real 'retail apocalypse', we've long been warned that only 9 meals separate civilization from anarchy. In the 4th video below, Dave with the X22Report talks with us about the 'retail apocalypse' that America is now facing. And with a gigantic truth bomb possibly set to blow up in Americans faces in 2017, we're reminded in the closing remarks below from Bill Holter that huge changes are likely coming to America, and paper assets and other numbers that Americans see on their portfolios are just numbers on paper - you won't be able to eat them. Holter warns that what's coming could leave most Americans living like cavemen. You can hear directly from Bill in the final video below. Will big stock market gains save some people from the coming pain of this economic reset? Holter, who has more than two decades of brokerage and stock market experience, contends, “One man’s debt is another man’s asset. The asset values are going to have to be marked down. . . . The point being, those assets that people hold in their portfolio, the numbers they see on their statements are just numbers. When this comes down, that’s not real value. You are not going to be able to call on those assets to live, to eat or to pay bills. It’s an asset collapse because the debt side collapses.” Holter also says, “If you ask the question, does the average American believe we’re broke, I think deep down, and in the back of their minds, they think we’re broke. We’re living this lifestyle, and they think this lifestyle is not going to change. When the lifestyle does change, and it’s forced to be changed, that’s a gigantic truth bomb.”

Left Calls For Martial Law To Stop Donald Trump As More Signs Emerge They're Preparing To Bring The Whole Thing Down

January 5, 2017 By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

It's the elephant in the room that nobody but survivalists and the independent media have been talking about. With the federal debt climbing by more than a trillion dollars with an additional $1,054,647,941,626.91 added in 2016 and increasing $9,349,949,902,134.72 during the Obama regime, even Donald Trump might not be able to help stave off what comes after very poor economic decisions are made by a country for a very long time. As former Ronald Reagan Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts asks in his new story, can Trump fix the economy in 2017? And as this new story from SHTFPlan and the first video below point out (viewed more than 650,000 times in the last week alone!), nearly every day for the past several years we've been getting more and more evidence that preparation has been taking place at the very highest levels for the total breakdown of society here in America. Might 2017 bring social disintegration and martial law to America, whether or not Trump is able to get into office? The fact that some 'looney left snowflake millennials' have actually started a petition on Change.org ASKING that Barack Obama declare martial law in some sick and devious attempt to overturn the results of a lawful election show us how far America has fallen down the rabbit hole. Still pushing the 'Russia tampered with the election' lie and thinking that martial law being declared by Obama to deal with said 'tampering' would be a good thing, do they not realize that martial law is martial law and no matter who you are, it's not going to be a good thing? Do looney liberals think they get some kind of a 'martial law exemption' because they're 'snowflakes'? Until we know fully if the 2016 Presidential election had been tampered with by the Russians; our country is under a serious security risk and to appoint a special non-partisan commission to discover whether or not President-elect Donald J. Trump and Vice president-elect Michael Pence had knowledge about any and all Russian interference . This petition will be delivered to: President Barack Obama With DisruptJ20 'protestors' still planning on attempting to shut down Trump's inauguration in just 16 days while also threatening to shut down various cities across America, we hear in the 2nd video below from Roger Stone that they've had someone actually infiltrate the DisruptJ20 'protests' and what they have planned is anything but 'peaceful'. Warning that some kind of coup still may be attempted against Trump, we see the latest moves being made by Obama sending US special ops to Russia's doorstep at a time when Trump has been working to reestablish relationships with Russia as another sign poor losers have no intention of going away quietly into the night. Almost as if everything we've learned over the years from those in authority including the MSM and the government has been one huge lie, the interesting excerpt below comes to us from Don Nicoloff, who passed away from a heart attack back on March 13th of 2015.: What we are taught about history in American schools is not history, but a fairy tale. Better yet, it is propaganda designed to hoodwink an unsuspecting society about its true heritage and the treasonous acts and sabotage that were conceived in order to bring about a New World Order. You are about to learn the real identities of those who have infiltrated your nation on behalf of secret societies intent on bringing about the total slavery of mankind. In the past, others have written about the numerous conspiracies to control natural resources, energy, food and our sovereign right to live on planet Earth — not as slaves of a wealthy few — but as free men, women, and children exercising the free will given to them by God. Imagine you were a member of a secret organization whose sole agenda was to control the entire planet. If your plan was to accomplish this goal without being perceived by your intended victims, discretion would be paramount. Your organization would devise a series of historical events that, on the surface, would appear to be everyday, happenstance occurrences (natural disasters, man-made diseases, acts of murder, assassination, terror, manipulation of money and energy supplies, contamination of foods, pollution of natural resources, and war). The timing of these events would require patience, careful planning, and cooperation from others in positions of trust, stealth and deceit. In essence, the whole mission must derive its power through deception and concealment and must have a master plan.

In essence, the whole mission must derive its power through deception and concealment and must have a master plan. Knowing that the globalists long-held plan has been to bring America down while destroying all nation states, will we soon witness the long given warnings of Watchmen such as Steve Quayle, Alex Jones and the Hagmann's coming true before our very eyes? Watching what is happening now in Europe should be a sign to Americans that things aren't getting better any time soon if we simply allow America to be overthrown as Europe is clearly being overthrown now. We should also take a look at what's happening elsewhere close to home both in Mexico, where massive looting and rioting has recently erupted after gas prices shot up 20% in just one weekend, as well as in Venezuela where those who didn't prepare for economic hardships are quite literally dying hungry in the streets. And while we here living in America are blessed beyond the knowledge of most people as we regularly have food on our tables, hot running water to shower in and electricity that helps us to live in the 21st century rather than the 19th, knowing that inflation has hit 1000% in the dying socialist nation and that widespread shortages of not only food but other basic goods such as toilet paper happen every day should lead us all to prepare for the same thing, even if that day never arrives. Because with America every day going into more and more debt and our leaders in Washington DC who've been pushing to turn the US into a totalitarian state throwing temper tantrums at the thought of Donald Trump undoing all of the destruction they've caused, the next 15 days could be unlike anything we've ever seen here before. And while we don't agree with everything that our videographer says in this first video below, they've done a very good job on the video...good enough that nearly 700,000 Americans have watched it. Warning us that nothing Donald Trump can do will be able to stop what's coming, our videographer puts it all together... the massive military trains and convoys we've seen across America the last several years, all of the drills that have taken place from coast to coast, and the very strange sightings of United Nations vehicles all across the country. Adding in the ever-growing US debt and snowflakes in America calling for martial law while promising 'no work, no school, and no business as usual' in the coming days, we hope everybody is ready for that day we pray never arrives as it appears to be on the way.

Alert: Hard left, communist radicals launch de facto coup attempt in America

By Alex Thomas - 01.06.2017 @2:11 AM EST

Group launches effort to prevent Trump from taking office with full page New York Times ad

(INTELLIHUB) — A group of radical leftists that includes activists, entertainers, artists, professors, writers, and at least one known terrorist has launched what amounts to a sort of soft coup attempt in America with the release of a full page New York Times ad and accompanying website that lays out a concrete plan to prevent Donald Trump from ever taking office. The website, refusefascism.org, makes it clear from the start that this is not about simply protesting Trump’s inauguration but rather about actually preventing him from being inaugurated to the office he rightfully won. In other words, this is a direct attempt to steal the election from both Trump and the American people. The homepage for the groups website starts out by shouting “Bring DC to a halt!” and “Millions in the street say no!” before laying out what they are actually calling for. “Going into the Inauguration, flood the streets of Washington, DC with millions of people, determined to stay on the streets to stop the Trump-Pence regime before it starts,” the website reads. “This starts January 14, the weekend of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, and DOES NOT STOP till this regime is prevented from ruling. This is the kind of political crisis needed at this moment in history. It has happened before, and it can happen again,” it continues. A quote on the sites sidebar fantasizes about what it would be like to stop the elected President of the United States from ever taking office. “Imagine if people, in the tens of millions, filled the streets, powerfully declaring that this regime is illegitimate and demanding that it not be allowed to rule! The whole political landscape would be dramatically transformed, every faction within the established power structure would be forced to respond—and all this could well lead to a situation in which this fascist regime is actually prevented from ruling. This is not some idle dream but something which could be made a reality if all those who hate what is represented by this fascist regime translate their outrage into firm determination and massive mobilization to create the conditions which make this possible.” Its one thing to call for massive protests that would then somehow lead to Trump being unable to take office. Having a plan for how that would actually happen is another thing altogether and this group seems to have that covered as well. Startlingly, the plan not only includes massive protests, it also aims to cause so much of a problem that the “ruling elite” would then be forced to intervene against Trump. That’s right, this hard left and communist run sneak coup attempt is planning for the establishment to join them. On the FAQ section of their website they describe, in great detail, how they plan to stop Donald Trump from ever becoming president. “By the intersection of two things: first, massive protest and resistance from tens of millions of ordinary people, daring and determined to actually prevent this fascist regime from taking over and implementing its program, beginning more or less immediately and growing to a crescendo in the next few weeks, and through that creating “a crisis of rule”; and second, coupled with this, attempts by different factions in the established power structure which have real differences with Trump-Pence to solve the crisis by preventing them from taking the reins of power. These protests could be something with the character of the protests against police murder over the past few years, or the Occupy protests before that—but larger by several orders of magnitude and even more determined. Such protests would have to have the effect of figuratively “stopping society in its tracks” and would raise real questions as to whether people very broadly would recognize the legitimacy of such a regime to even rule in basic ways and enforce its edicts. The “not normal” character of Trump-Pence—the radical changes they embody in how people are to be ruled in this country (in short, the fascist ethos and measures they campaigned on) and in regard to U.S. international policy—have not only created tremendous anguish and anger among many millions of ordinary people, but among ruling factions which have up to now nevertheless chosen to go along with this. But should there be a political eruption “from below,” their concerns over Trump would combine with immediate questions as to whether their basic stability and perhaps even the entire system would be endangered by continuing to stick with Trump-Pence. As that dynamic developed, scandals that up to now have been covered up could erupt, or be treated in a different way so as to raise fundamental constitutional issues, and ways would be found to prevent the coming to power of Trump-Pence.” The group also has a planned full-scale propaganda effort that includes paying the mainstream media to run ads to promote their goal of stealing the election as well as a highly coordinated social media campaign aimed at the same. Eventually they envision bringing Washington D.C. to a complete halt in the week leading up to the inauguration as well as new “Trump scandals” to magically erupt in the mainstream media. Early this week, the call for this campaign will hit with tremendous impact via ads in major news outlets, in print and online, co-ordinated with massive and burgeoning social media efforts. Spokespeople will be made available to media in a concerted effort to get the word out and to involve as diverse a group of initiators and other possible spokespeople as possible in doing that. And with this, plans will be announced to “bring DC to a halt” in the week before the scheduled inauguration. Shortly after that we envision the growth of demonstrations and other forms of protest—including especially non-violent direct action disrupting business as usual, occupying public spaces, assemblies and meetings in institutions and workplaces, strikes, etc.—in cities across the country. As people see that there are many who feel like they do and, more than that, are determined and acting to do something about what would almost certainly be a horrific regime, they will themselves become inspired and compelled to join in these. This would have to quickly spread and find ways to overcome resistance and obstacles; but once people are aroused and acting on their highest aspirations, tremendous creativity and resources can become unlocked and things can spread like wildfire. While this is far from assured, historical experience shows that there is a reasonable chance that in the face of extreme provocation from the ruling powers, people can act in extraordinary ways. As this develops, we envision public spaces being occupied in major cities and millions travelling to DC to protest the inauguration in the days leading up to it (and the millions in the DC and Baltimore areas who DID oppose Trump-Pence making resources and shelter available). This is a highly mobile and highly interknit society in which there is still relative freedom of movement and outlets for expression*; if such a thing could happen in a highly repressive and non-interlinked society like Egypt, it could certainly happen here. As all this emerges and then comes to a head, we would expect that even further scandals around Trump would surface from various sources, that different sections of the population with different concerns would get drawn into this, and that the social will to stop Trump-Pence from ruling would emerge and the political/legal means to accomplish that would be found. On first glance this may seem like more of the same – the endless petty attacks on Trump and his incoming presidency that have all so far failed. Sadly this does not seem to be the case here, especially when you consider who is actually behind this de facto coup attempt. While more mainstream leftists such as Debra Messing and “Rosie” O’Donnell are leading the media charge for the group, its actual key members are much more important, with the list reading like a who’s who of the radical communist left. Calling themselves “initiators” the group includes former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers and founding member of the American communist party Carl Dix. Others listed on the website as responsible for the plan include: Herb Boyd, activist, author, journalist and teacher Isabel Cardenas, Salvadoran-American activist, Los Angeles Niles Eldredge, evolutionary biologist Charles Gaines, visual artist Henry Giroux Chase Iron Eyes Everett Iron Eyes Sr., Water Administrator, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Robin D. G. Kelley, Gary B. Nash Professor of American History at UCLA* Fran Luck, Executive Producer of Joy of Resistance, Multicultural Feminist Radio at WBAI PZ Myers, evolutionary developmental biologist Arturo O’Farrill, composer and musician Milton Saier, PhD, Professor of Molecular Biology, UCSD* Yusef Salaam, one of the Central Park Five Ted Sirota, jazz musician Sunsara Taylor, writer, Revolution Newspaper Cornel West, writer, professor Michael A. Wood Jr. Rev. Frank Wulf, United Methodist minister Andy Zee, spokesperson, Revolution Books David Zeiger, filmmaker For their part, the seemingly compliant mainstream media, which would have had a field day if a group of patriots like those in the standoff at the Bundy Ranch ever did something so coordinated and direct as this, has largely ignored this stunning call for election theft. When they have covered it, they have directly misconstrued what the ad in the Times was actually about. For example, a Variety headline on this actual plan to stop the elected president from taking office called it, “an anti-Trump Fascist warning”. Add this to the fact that the media looks to be taking money from this group for their ads and you have at the very least tacit support from the establishment press. The next three weeks are lining up to possibly be on a scale not seen in this country for decades and now we have known radical leftist provocateurs initiating a plan to steal the election.

Trump Fires All Obama Politically Appointed Ambassadors Effective Inauguration Day

Kristinn Taylor Jan 5th, 2017 8:19 pm

President-elect Donald Trump has fired, effective Inauguration Day January 20, every U.S. ambassador politically appointed by President Barack Obama, according to a report published Thursday night by the New York Times. The Times reports the State Department sent out a notice on December 23 informing the ambassadors of Trump’s order. The move sent shock waves through the diplomatic corps as some ambassadors in previous transitions had been given time to leave their post for personal convenience. President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition staff has issued a blanket edict requiring politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, according to several American diplomats familiar with the plan, breaking with decades of precedent by declining to provide even the briefest of grace periods. The mandate — issued “without exceptions,” according to a terse State Department cable sent on Dec. 23, diplomats who saw it said — threatens to leave the United States without Senate-confirmed envoys for months in critical nations like Germany, Canada and Britain. In the past, administrations of both parties have often granted extensions on a case-by-case basis to allow a handful of ambassadors, particularly those with school-age children, to remain in place for weeks or months. Mr. Trump, by contrast, has taken a hard line against leaving any of President Obama’s political appointees in place as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20 with a mission of dismantling many of his predecessor’s signature foreign and domestic policy achievements. “Political” ambassadors, many of them major donors who are nominated by virtue of close ties with the president, almost always leave at the end of his term; ambassadors who are career diplomats often remain in their posts. A senior Trump transition official said there was no ill will in the move, describing it as a simple matter of ensuring that Mr. Obama’s overseas appointees leave the government on schedule, just as thousands of political aides at the White House and in federal agencies must do. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about internal deliberations, said the ambassadors should not be surprised about being held to a hard end date.”

Prepare For Antichrist’s Global Socialism And A “World Without Work”

January 5, 2017 by SkyWatch Editor

As we start the year full of good intentions to flourish at work, social scientists are warning that our careers could be over sooner than we expect. The world is barreling toward what has been dubbed the “post-work economy,” as technology replaces humans at an unprecedented rate. Driverless cars are set to make millions of truckers and taxi drivers redundant and automated fast food service is poised to shut off a key job sector for young people. As artificial intelligence is increasingly able to carry out complex tasks that used to require humans, large numbers of us are set to find ourselves out of work, with no prospects. “Many jobs will be destroyed,” futurist Ross Dawson told news.com.au. “We can no longer be sure we’ll have a sufficient amount of the right type of work for people to be employed.” The experts aren’t sure how soon all this is going to happen, but the shift is taking place faster than predicted.

Massive storm system moves into Northern California; flooding, heavy snow forecast

Paige St. John, Joseph Serna and Tony Barboza Contact Reporters

The first band of what forecasters predict will be the region’s most powerful storm in a decade moved into Northern California on Saturday, prompting official warnings of widespread flooding and epic snowfall. “People are definitely in a state of panic right now,” said El Dorado County Sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Hammitt. “We’re getting a lot of calls asking if we’re going to be able to deal with everything. It’s the general pandemonium of not knowing what’s coming.” Up to 12 inches of rain is expected below 8,500 feet, and massive amounts of snow — up to 6 feet — above that elevation across the Sierra Nevada. A colder storm two days behind is expected to bring more heavy snow. The rain moved in late Friday and continued into Saturday morning, with the most powerful punch expected later in the day. Officials said the strongest part of the storm will hit Sunday. As of Saturday morning, snow was beginning to fall again in parts of the Sierra Nevada. The storm was also bringing wind gusts that topped 50 mph. Officials said they were low snow and icy conditions on Interstate 5 and 80 as well as U.S. 50 and some mountain highways. “We’re expecting heavy, heavy rain. It starts out as snow then turns to rain then turns to snow again,” Hammitt said. “We’re concerned about the melt increasing waterways and all the lakes.” Hammitt recalled storms in 1997 and 2005 when runoff overwhelmed local rivers and creeks and sent water into roads and homes, lifting some buildings off their foundations. “We have streams, creeks, rivers. We have lakes and ponds,” Hammitt said. “Anybody near a water source could be in jeopardy depending on the severity of the storm.” Two sinkholes have been reported on El Dorado County roads as a result of three days of rain this week. County residents have already filled 12,000 sandbags in preparation for the storm and an additional 20,000 are on the way in, Hammitt said. “Anytime it’s Mother Nature, you have to be ready,” Hammitt said. While Northern California faced the brunt of the storms, a less powerful system moved into Southern California overnight, bringing scattered showers Saturday morning. The rain was harder to the north along the Central Coast. The wet conditions should continue on and off through the weekend. But the much of the concern is focused in the Bay Area and Sierra. “It’s a once-in-10-year event,” said Zach Tolby, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Reno. “It’s the strongest storm we’ve seen in a long time, the kind of setup we look for to get significant flooding.” Indeed, large swaths of the Bay Area, Sierra foothills, Central Coast and parts of the Sacramento Valley were under flash-flood warnings. Flood concerns are heightened because officials fear that the snow may quickly melt due to heavy rain. The so-called atmospheric river of airborne moisture known as the “Pineapple Express” will be felt across much of the state this weekend, though rain will be much heavier in the north than in the south. “It’s going to be like buckets of water for a fairly sustained period of time,” Tolby said. Wind gusts on mountaintops could top 130 mph in the northern Sierra, which is typical, Tolby said. At lower elevations gusts could reach 30 or 40 mph, he said, “but that’s an average windy day for us.”Tolby said the storm is packing the same wallop as an atmospheric river that hit Northern California a decade ago that caused $300 million in damage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Angelenos may remember the 2005-06 storm because it was the first time it rained on the Rose Parade in 51 years. But Tolby, who lives in Lake Tahoe, remembers the storm differently. “It was pretty wild. I was here in 2005 and it was definitely the hardest rain I’d ever seen. It didn’t stop for 24 hours,” he said. This weekend’s storm could bring 36 straight hours of heavy rain from Mammoth Mountain to Susanville, Tolby said. Below clear blue skies Friday, people in the snow-shrouded ski town of Mammoth Lakes were gleeful about the prospect of several more feet of snow. Yet some also worried that the big, wet storm could dump so much rain and snow that it could shut down some ski runs or roads. In preparation, snowplows were scraping icy roadways. Excavators and snowblower operators stayed busy clearing and moving huge piles of snow. Some cars sat abandoned on the roadside or at gas stations, covered with thick blankets of snow from the most recent storm. Outside Kittredge Sports, store manager Terry Lucian took advantage of the clear weather to shovel away some of the mounds of snow that had built up outside the entrance. “If the storm comes in as wet as they’re talking about, it’ll make for a big mess,” the 60-year-old said as he scooped icy snow off the entrance to the A-frame building. Lucian said recent storms definitely helped to boost business, but he worried some skiers traveling to the area this weekend could be in for disappointment if storm conditions worsen to the point that they shut down parts of Mammoth Mountain. “Everybody wants the snow, they just don’t want it while they’re here,” the 39-year Mammoth resident said. “It’ll be a rough couple of days, but we need the water. So it’s going to be OK.” Up north, South Lake Tahoe Mayor Austin Sass urged residents to prepare for the storm. “If at all possible, get up on your roof and get off whatever snow you have on there because the moisture combined with the snow will be extremely heavy and we’re worried about the integrity of your roof structure,” Sass tweeted Friday. Do not go outside Sunday or Monday, he told his constituents. “When the snow comes mixed with the rain it’s going to be an absolute mess. So whatever you can do stay home and most importantly, stay safe,” he said. In the mountains, the rain could saturate the snow and trigger early melt, feeding extra runoff into watersheds already swollen from a week of rain. “A combination of intense rain on saturated soils will lead to excessive runoff,” the National Weather Service said in its weekend forecast. The Carson, Truckee and Susan rivers are all expected to become overwhelmed, and nearby communities may become increasingly isolated if the deluge triggers mud and rock slides. Weather officials issued a flood watch from Saturday to Wednesday that covers much of Northern California and extends down through the Sierra to Tehachapi. In Mono County, authorities offered sandbags to residents in preparation for the rain. In Yosemite National Park, officials announced Friday that the park would remain open through the wet weekend, but access to popular Yosemite Valley would be closed. Earlier in the week, up to 2 feet of snow fell in less than 24 hours in the Tahoe basin on Wednesday, at times coming down at more than 2 inches an hour. The Sierra Avalanche Center reported a slight improvement in backcountry conditions. The risk of avalanche was lowered to "considerable" even as the threat increased of historically large avalanches caused by slabs of snowpack as thick as 8 feet above a weak layer of ice laid down by a mid-December rain. Near Lake Tahoe on Thursday, two skiers were caught in an avalanche that closed a local highway. But they were not injured, officials said. Sierra residents are preparing for a third onslaught over the weekend, bringing up to 12 inches of rain below 8,500 feet, and more snow above that. A fourth storm system is forecast to roll across Northern California two days after that. After the weekend storm, another rain-making system is expected to hit Northern California on Tuesday. For all the problems the storms may cause, it will bring more good news for California’s six-year drought. Officials have said steady rain in Northern California the last few months has filled reservoirs and increased the once-anemic snowpack. They emphasize the storms won’t end the drought. But if the rains keep up for spring, they could make a major dent.

Canadian Imam says Islamic Law to be implemented when Muslims are majority

Posted by: Jonathan D. Halevi December 30, 2016

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, is a Canadian Muslim scholar, who was born as a Christian in Jamaica in 1947 and grew up in Canada, where he accepted Islam in 1972. He completed a diploma in Arabic and a B.A. from the College of Islamic Disciplines (Usool ad-Deen) at the Islamic University of Madeenah in 1979. At the University of Riyadh, College of Education, he completed a M.A. in Islamic Theology in 1985, and in the department of Islamic Studies at the University of Wales, he completed a Ph.D. in Islamic Theology in 1994. Residing in Doha, Qatar, Bilal Philips is regularly invited to mosques in Canada and abroad to speak about the teachings of Islam. In a recent Friday sermon, Bilal Philips argued that Judaism and Christianity are a distortion of Islam, and that, Jesus, who was a Muslim, represents the link connecting the three religions. He accused a small group of Muslims of provoking Islamophobia because of their call to implement the Islamic Law (Sharia) in Europe where Muslims are a minority. When Muslims become the majority, explained Bilal Philips, they are obliged to implement the Islamic Law. The following are excerpts from Bilal Philip’s sermon (published on YouTube on August 21, 2016): “Prophet Jesus. Issa [Arabic name of Jesus], peace be upon him, represents the bond or the link between the three last versions of Islam. The third Islam being the true version. “Christianity [is] a distortion, and Judaism [is] a distortion, though in its roots Judaism was Islam as in the roots of Christianity, as Jesus taught it, it was Islam. Jesus represents the link between all three. “Twenty two states in the US out of their fifty two states, twenty two of them legally banned the Islamic Law (Sharia)…

“The Sharia is the law of God, the law of Allah which is good for all times, all people in all places. That is the reality. “Wherever Muslims are able to apply it, it is their duty to apply it, not to force it upon people as a minority in a country of non Muslims. “We have foolish Muslims, you know, calling for Sharia in the middle of Europe and creating the scare. “We can’t apply it unless we are the majority and the majority agree, then we can apply it, if the majority don’t agree even we’re all Muslims, but the majority don’t agree to apply Sharia to try, to apply it is to unleash bloodshed in the Muslim nation [Ummah], because Muslims will fight you. “They have to be educated. The Muslim nation [Ummah] has to come to that understanding that the way that we deserve to govern ourselves is in accordance with the Sharia [Islamic Law] and that’s what ‘there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, peace and blessing of Allah be upon him’ (لا إله إلا الله ومحمد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم) means. This is what it means.”

Muslim Workers’ Increasing Religious Demands Behind Car Plant Closure, Mayor Reveals

by Virginia Hale4 Jan 2017

The growing religious demands of Muslim workers at a car factory in Paris contributed to the plant’s closure in 2013, Drancy deputy-mayor Jean-Christophe Lagarde has disclosed. Lagarde made the revelation during an appearance on public service broadcaster France Info on Tuesday, in which he was asked about “communitarian trends” in Islam, where communities are becoming more religious and more insular. “Religion has nothing to do with work” began his response, but the Union of Democrats and Independents (UDI) president went on to admit that Islam has caused a number of problems related to employment in the state he represents. “There were difficulties, including in my area, for example in Aulnay-sous-Bois. It was never said, but part of the PSA closure was down to the ubiquity of religion and the fact that there were religious demands at work, work stoppage, [and] loss of productivity,” he said. RATP has also experienced difficulties with Muslim employees Lagarde noted, referring to known cases of radicalisation in the Paris transport company, which is said to employ a large number of Muslims who are watched by French intelligence as known extremists. The PSA Group, a French car manufacturer who makes Peugeot and Citroën vehicles, shut its factory in Aulnay-sous-Bois in 2013. The plant was known for employing a large number of practising Muslims as workers. In addition to having installed a prayer room in the 1980s, the factory’s menus and schedule, with regards to Ramadan, prayer breaks, and religious holidays, were all adapted for the convenience of Muslim staff members. Drancy, where Lagarde is mayor, neighbours Aulnay-sous-Bois and is a commune in Paris’s northeastern suburbs in Seine-Saint-Denis, the most violent department in France. The area, where 36 per cent of residents were born abroad, has long been known as a trouble spot in Paris, with police regularly attacked and buses torched. But a recent report, which revealed the suburb to be a “no-go zone” for women in which they are invisible in the streets and unwelcome in bars and cafes, caused a stir across the media, with politicians voicing their disgust.

Invasion Europe: Mainly Muslim, Mainly Male, Mainly Young

2016 was a fine year for Islamist terrorism and an even finer year for Western political distraction. While Islamic terrorists repeatedly succeeded in carrying out mass-casualty terrorist attacks, as well as a constant run of smaller-scale strikes, the political leadership of the free world continued to try to divert their public. The most striking example of the year came in the summer with the French debate over whether or not to ban the “burkini” from the beaches of France. The row erupted in the days after another 86 people were murdered in a jihadist terrorist assault — this time in Nice, France. With no one sure how to prevent access to vehicles or any idea how many French Muslims might want to follow suit, the French media and authorities chose to debate an item of beachwear. The carefully staged decision by an Australian Muslim woman to have herself filmed while wearing a burkini on a French beach ignited the row, which was eagerly seized upon by politicians. At the local and national level, the decision to discuss the burkini allowed all the larger political issues behind Europe’s growing security problem to be ignored. In the wake of Nice, there should have been a fulsome public discussion over what if anything can be done to ensure that people who have been in France for many years — in some cases their entire lives — are not indoctrinated to hate the country so much that they drive a truck through a crowded sea-front on Bastille Day. Or there could have been a wide public debate over whether, with so many radicalised Muslims already in France, it was a wise or foolish idea to continue to import large numbers of Muslims into this already simmering situation. As it was, neither of these debates did occur, and no meaningful political action was taken. Instead, the issue of the burkini sucked all the oxygen out of the debate, leaving no room to discuss anything more serious or longer term than beachwear. In the wake of the July 14 attack in Nice, France, in which 86 people were murdered, there should have been a fulsome public discussion over what if anything can be done to ensure that people who have been in France for many years — in some cases their entire lives — are not indoctrinated to hate the country so much that they drive a truck through a crowded sea-front on Bastille Day. (Image source: France24 video screenshot) Across the continent in 2016, it appeared that other politicians realised the enormous advantage of such distraction debates. For instance, in the Netherlands in November, the country’s MPs voted for a ban on wearing a burka in public places. Prime Minister Mark Rutte apparently found this an enormously convenient debate. Not only did it temporarily reduce some of the pressure that his government is feeling at the rise of Geert Wilders’s Freedom Party to the top of opinion polls, but it also distracted attention from the years of mass immigration and lax integration demands which have been a hallmark of the Dutch experience. After importing hundreds of thousands of people whose beliefs the Dutch authorities rarely bothered to question, the public would be satisfied — the Rutte government hoped — if only the small number of Dutch Muslim women who wear the burka were prevented from doing so. The Netherlands will have to see whether its implementation of such a law works any better than it does in neighbouring France, where “white knights” routinely show up to pay the fines of women fined for violating the burka ban there. The Rutte government was not the only one to adopt this cynical strategy. Its most cynical deployment of all came in December, with the announcement by the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, that she would ban the burka in Germany. As with the Dutch government, Merkel clearly hoped that in throwing this tidbit to the German public she might head off the threat that the Alternative for Germany party (AfD), among others, now poses to her party in this year’s election. But the move also raises the question of just how stupid does Angela Merkel believe the German people to be? It would seem that Merkel hopes that with this burka ban the German public will forgive or forget that here is a political leader so devoid of foresight that she unilaterally chose to allow an extra 1-2% of the population to be added to her country in a single year, mainly Muslim, mainly male and mainly young. This is a Chancellor who, even having previously admitted that Germany’s multicultural model had “failed,” revved immigration up to unprecedented and unsustainable levels. Now, like her counterparts across the continent, she must hope that the German public are satisfied by this burka morsel and that, as a result, they will return Merkel and her party to power so that they can repeat whichever of their mistakes they choose in the years ahead. It is possible, of course, that the European publics are wiser than their leaders and that they will see through these cynical and distracting tactics. There are extremely good reasons to ban any garment which covers a person’s face and allows them to wander as an anonymous stranger in our societies. There are some — though fewer — reasons to ban wearing a burkini on a beach. Certainly the governments of France, the Netherlands and Germany are within their rights to instigate and enforce any and all such bans. Such moves, however, are but the smallest register imaginable of a problem that seems far beyond this generation of politicians. The burka and burkini, like the headscarf, are only issues because millions of people have been allowed, unchecked, into Europe for years. The garment is merely the simplest issue at which to take aim. Far harder are the issues of immigration and integration. It is possible that Europe’s politicians cannot answer these questions because any and all answers would point the finger at their own failings. Or it is possible that they have no answers to the problems with which they have presented the continent. Whichever it is, they would do well to reflect that in 2017, the European publics might get fed up with the distraction tactics of talking about clothing and instead seek answers to the challenge we now face, as well as retribution at the polls for the politicians who brought us here. Douglas Murray, British author, commentator and public affairs analyst, is based in London, England.

'Enemies Within' – Hillary's links to Muslim Brotherhood revealed

Expert on national security warns ties 'deeper, broader, wider' than Huma Abedin's

Published: 2 days ago

A blockbuster new documentary asserts there is a master plan to create a permanent liberal majority in American by flooding it with millions of voters hostile to conservatism. But “The Enemies Within” also claims forces dedicated to the destruction of this country have even penetrated the national security bureaucracy, endangering Americans and the entire system of constitutional government. Key to this case is the testimony of Philip Haney, a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security and a counter-terrorism analyst who was widely praised and commended by his superiors throughout his distinguished career. By accumulating vast amounts of data and examining the relationships between various extremist groups and their sources of funding, Haney had identified dozens of terrorists throughout the years, arguably preventing numerous attacks. However, in 2009, it was Haney himself who was targeted by his own government. He tells his story in the book “See Something, Say Nothing,” but his story is also the most powerful part of “The Enemies Within.” He recounts in “The Enemies Within:” “I finished a case up, I put it in the system. There were 67 records related to the case, individuals and organizations. But then about two weeks after I put the case into the system, I went on vacation and received a call from my colleague. He said they had removed the records from the system. They didn’t just modify them, they completely obliterated them, took all of them out.” Haney argues this dramatic action had devastating consequences for the American people. The specific records the government deleted turned out to be directly relevant to terrorist attacks that took place later. “Those are the records related to the network of mosques and organizations operating in the United States that is linked to the San Bernardino shooting and to the Orlando shooting,” he recalled. Indeed, Haney states in the video the federal government not only removed the records but actually investigated him for simply doing his job. “They said essentially that I did not have the authority to put those records into the system, even though I had been commended by the National Targeting Center for finding 300 terrorists,” Haney says in the film. “So, essentially, the last three years of my career, I was under investigation by three different government agencies, all at the same time. They essentially determined that I was more of a threat than these terrorist groups.” Shockingly, the distinguished counter-terrorism expert says no one in the federal government ever claimed his records were inaccurate or untrue. The facts, he claims, were beyond dispute. Instead, for no good reason he can identify, his work was eliminated and he was disgraced. In one of the most dramatic moments of the film, Haney describes his reaction as feeling “infuriated and stripped naked.” He describes the painful experience as a “public humiliation.” “To sequester me in a small room for the last 11 months of my career with no assigned duties and then have the audacity to say those were not adverse actions because ‘we’re just conducting an investigation,'” Haney remembers. “It’s cruel to do that to a person. It wasn’t a moral infraction, it wasn’t refusal to obey orders, it wasn’t some crime that I committed. It was simply doing the job that I took a vow to do and had been recognized and awarded for.” For that reason, Haney emphatically states in the documentary the United States has enemies within its own government. Distinguished author and researcher Trevor Loudon describes the terrifying full extent of this hostile network operating within America’s own borders in “The Enemies Within,” detailing an alliance between radical Marxists and Islamic extremists that has penetrated the very highest levels of the federal government. As Haney explains in the film, the problem has gotten so bad, many of America’s politicians and policy makers would not be able to pass the kind of basic security checks required of even entry level employees. “If you have overt ties to associations with known associations with terrorism, you cannot pass a background check,” Haney says in the film. He describes Hillary Clinton as a ‘domestic threat” and details the deep connections between the former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of state with some of the most dangerous Islamic movements in the world. They even go beyond her close relationship with longtime aide and confidante Huma Abedin. The most dangerous enemy is the one who operates from within your own gates. Discover the traitors within our own country and help spread the word about how America is already under attack. Don’t miss “The Enemies Within” available now in the WND Superstore. “Hillary Clinton’s ties are a lot deeper, broader and wider than Huma Abedin,” Haney says. “The best example of her ties is her affiliation with the Istanbul Process and, in particular, with U.N. Resolution 1618. That resolution, it essentially criminalizes defamation of Islam, has been backed for 10 years by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a 57-nation organization. It is essentially run in its leadership positions by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. By endorsing U.N. Resolution 16/18, by default Hillary Clinton is aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood on a macro, global level.” And the Muslim Brotherhood, in Haney’s opinion as a national security professional, is directly responsible for sponsoring terrorism. He argues in “The Enemies Within” the organization should be labeled a terrorist group and shut down. “Since we already know that Muslim Brotherhood is the parent of Hamas and that these organizations are overtly supporting Hamas and other like-minded organizations around the world then we should shut those organizations,” he declares in the film. “And that would send a shockwave throughout the pro-Shariah, pro-jihadist Islamic world without firing a single shot or dropping a bomb anywhere in the world.” Until that happens, Haney argues, national security professionals have been “completely blindfolded and handcuffed.” “We can’t use the most basic fundamental language that they themselves use to help us understand what Islam believes and what its intentions are,” he explains in the movie. “The Enemies Within” doesn’t just analyze radical Islam. Instead, it details the terrifying extent to which far left radicals who have overtly declared their anti-American intentions are taking control of the very institutions meant to protect Americans. At a time when the mainstream media is suddenly concerned about supposed Russian interference, “The Enemies Within” shows the rot set in much sooner than the last election cycle and involves hostile foreign actors more malevolent than Vladimir Putin. “Those of us who took our oath [seriously] are being betrayed,’ Haney says of his fellow national security professionals in the film. “Things like that which happened to me will happen more and more often because people will be forced to stand up for the law at the risk of their career and maybe even their life.” At a time of crisis, remaining uninformed isn’t just dangerous, it’s deadly. “The Enemies Within” is the first step to recognizing where the threat is coming from.

Nazi Collaborator Soros Continues Multi-pronged War on Trump, Calls Him “Would-be Dictator”

Written by William F. Jasper Wednesday, 04 January 2017

Hedge fund billionaire George Soros is used to having his way. But the megalomaniacal currency speculator and political manipulator bet on the wrong horse in the Trump vs. Clinton race, and even all the millions of dollars he spent trying to rig the outcome failed, in the end. It must be hard for the 86-year-old globalist to face up to the fact that the world is not his oyster and his admitted “fantasies about being God” are just that — fantasies, albeit far from harmless ones. (The BlackLivesMatter riots and the anti-Trump riots he helped finance look more like the work of Lucifer than God, in this reporter’s humble opinion.) However, Soros refuses to accept that he lost and Trump won. So he is committing a sizable portion of his enormous wealth, along with his outsized political and media influence, to crippling and delegitimizing the incoming Trump administration, with more riots, protests, and media hit pieces. Within hours after Trump had been officially named the victor, the Soros-funded rent-a-mobs were causing mayhem in streets all across America. And while that havoc was still playing out, Soros convened a closed confab of fellow globalist billionaires at a Washington D.C. luxury hotel to plan their anti-Trump counterattack. They call their plutocrat club the Democracy Alliance, an especially hypocritical label since they lavishly fund individuals and organizations that are working to undermine our constitutional republic (which they erroneously call a democracy). And just two weeks after Election Day, on November 22, Soros’s Open Society Foundations announced a “$10 Million Initiative to Confront Hate.” This new money spigot will expedite funding to organizations combatting the “harsh rhetoric and policy proposals” of Donald Trump “during the 2016 presidential campaign that drew on racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTI, and other forms of hate.” Which means, of course, that there will be ample funding for the “anti-hate” protesters who will be demonstrating (and likely rioting) on Inauguration Day, while spewing obscene and hateful remarks, burning Trump in effigy and carrying facsimilies of his head around on pikes (as they did in the November melees). Invoking Hitler While Labeling Trump a “Would-be Dictator” The latest hit piece by Soros personally is a column he penned for Project Syndicate, which has been carried by hundreds of newspapers, news services, and websites worldwide, and in which he calls Donald Trump “a con artist and would-be dictator.” The December 28 column, entitled “Open Society Needs Defending,” begins with a lengthy lead-in subtitle: “Open societies are in crisis, and various forms of closed societies — from fascist dictatorships to mafia states — are on the rise. Because elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations, electorates have become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism.” Soros then “brings his personal history to bear on the threat posed by today’s ascendant populists,” notes the Project Syndicate promotional puff. Soros writes: I am an 86-year-old Hungarian Jew who became a US citizen after the end of World War II. I learned at an early age how important it is what kind of political regime prevails. The formative experience of my life was the occupation of Hungary by Hitler’s Germany in 1944. I probably would have perished had my father not understood the gravity of the situation. He arranged false identities for his family and for many other Jews; with his help, most survived. However, Soros neglects to mention some very important facts in his biographical reflection, such as that he helped Hitler and the Nazis confiscate the wealth and belongings of his fellow Jews. What’s more, he feels no guilt, regret, or remorse about being a Holocaust helper, because, as he put it, if the hadn’t done it “somebody else would be taking it away anyhow.” However, he undoubtedly regrets being so candid about all of this during an interview with the CBS 60 Minutes program back in 1998. He must have realized afterward how ghoulishly cold-blooded and inhuman his words and demeanor appeared, and how violently that clashed with the philanthropic humanitarian image he was crafting for himself. For some reason, the CBS video of the program disappeared, and that disappearance has been the subject of much speculation concerning possible legal threats and/or financial inducements by Soros to keep the damning footage buried. The recent mysterious resurfacing of the 60 Minutes interview has likewise been the subject of much speculation. In addition to the recently released WikiLeaks files on Soros, which are decidedly less flattering than the canned biography of the mogul on Wikipedia, the CBS video allows Soros to demolish his own carefully invented saintly image with his own words. For the past couple of months, the long-lost 60 Minutes interview with Soros has been popping up on YouTube and various websites, only to be taken down due to CBS copyright challenges. But, like a Whack-a-Mole, it keeps popping up on new sites as fast as Soros and CBS can whack it down. The long-suppressed interview of an unrepentant Soros admitting he was a Holocaust helper further demolishes his credibility to pose — in his words — as the “conscience of the world.” During the 60 Minutes program CBS interviewer Steve Kroft asks Soros (born Gyorgy Schwartz) about his boyhood in Hungary during the Nazi occupation. Kroft rolls vintage footage of long lines of Hungarian Jews — men, women, children — being loaded onto trains. Here is a partial transcript of the interview (emphasis added): KROFT: (Voiceover) These are pictures from 1944 of what happened to George Soros' friends and neighbors. KROFT: (Voiceover) You're a Hungarian Jew... Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm. KROFT: (Voiceover) …who escaped the Holocaust... Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm. KROFT: (Voiceover) … by — by posing as a Christian. Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Right. KROFT: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps. Mr. SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that's when my character was made. KROFT: In what way? Mr. SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and — and anticipate events and when — when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a — a very personal experience of evil. KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson. Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes. KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews. Mr. SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes. KROFT: I mean, that's — that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult? Mr. SOROS: Not — not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don't — you don't see the connection. But it was it created no — no problem at all. KROFT: No feeling of guilt? Mr. SOROS: No. KROFT: For example that, 'I'm Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.' None of that? Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c — I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn't be there, because that was — well, actually, in a funny way, it's just like in markets — that if I weren't there — of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would — would — would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the — whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the — I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt. No sense of guilt then and none now. Neither does this Nazi collaborator suffer from any sense of guilt over smearing opponents with false charges of fascism or neo-Naziism, or funding groups that do the same. Nor does he suffer any qualms of conscience over crashing whole national economies and national currencies (Malaysia, Thailand, Britian), causing untold devastation and suffering for millions of people. Besides, a few million dollars in grants to activist NGOs and media groups usually suffices to repair any of the PR damage done by his predatory practices. Most likely, it is his Deity Complex that prevents him from ever experiencing feelings of guilt. After all, if one is “God” what is there to feel guilty about? But mortals who think they’re divine invariably suffer in other ways. "Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad," Soros once admitted to a British television audience. "In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid. I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it." Has he really escaped it? Many would disagree; his madness seems quite apparent. In addition to his most recent rant against Trump, he has turned Project Syndicate — his own media platform — into a non-stop free-fire zone aimed at the president-elect by leftwing “public intellectuals” such as Carl Bildt, Jorge Castaneda, Barry Eichengreem, Richard Haass, Joschka Fischer, Brad DeLong, Peter Singer, Javier Solana, and dozens of others. The 60 Minutes interview is well worth tracking down and well worth watching (before it gets permanently deep-sixed down the memory hole). Together with everything else that has come out on Soros in the intervening years, it provides more than enough evidence to banish the megalomaniacal mogul from all civil society and provide him with a padded cell where he can contemplate and celebrate his divinity without wreaking havoc on all mankind.

Russia sends two warships to Manila for drills with Philippines

By Allen Cone | Jan. 3, 2017 at 1:23 PM

MANILA, Jan. 3 (UPI) -- Russia sent two warships to the Philippines to participate in naval drills as President Rodrigo Duterte's relations with the U.S. becomes increasingly strained. The Admiral Tributs, an anti-submarine destroyer, and sea tanker Boris Butoma arrived in Manila on Tuesday for a four-day goodwill visit to show off the ships' anti-terrorism capabilities and conduct talks, Rear Admiral Eduard Mikhailov, deputy commander of the flotilla of the Russia's Pacific Fleet, said at a news conference. "We did not have problems dealing with other countries or their vessels like that of the United States or China," Mikhailov said. "We operated on a high level of friendly cooperation." He said "the biggest problem now in the world is terrorism and piracy" and the exercises "will show you what we can do and we will see what you can do." Mikhailov said Russia is willing to train the Philippines military how to stop Islamist militants from abducting tugboat crews. It's the first official contact between naval units from the Philippines and Russia. The United States and the Philippines annually conduct naval exercises but Duterte has instructed the defense ministry to "reformat" drills with the U.S. Navy. As the two counties participated in drills in October, Duterte said President Barack Obama can "go to hell." Obama has been heavily critical of Duterte over his brutal war on drugs. Duterte and Russian President Vladimir Putin met on the sidelines of the APEC economic summit in November. Duterte also visited China in October. In December, Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana met in Moscow with Alexander Fomin, director of the Federal Service for Military Technical Cooperation of the Russian Federation, to explore possible military cooperation between the two nations. Earlier last year, Lorenzana said Russia had offered to sell a submarine and drones to the Philippines. The Admiral Tributs and Boris Botuma have been conducting naval drills in Indonesia and India since November.

Russia is very much interested in having a military-to-military relationship with the Philippines, National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzanasaid on the sidelines of Friday’s Rizal Day commemorations. “They are very aggressive in wanting a military-to-military relationship with us,” he said in Filipino. Lorenzana said this was made apparent during his recent visit to Russia, along with Foreign Affairs Secretary Perfecto Yasay. He however clarified that this is not a prelude to an alliance but merely student-to-student exchanges, sending of observers in exercises and selling of some military hardware to the Philippines. “We will look into their hardware one of these days for testing, once samples become available for testing,” he added, stressing that these talks are only at the initial phase. Russia is offering the Philippines drones and submarines, which Lorenzana said the country could not afford at the moment due to the massive investments needed for acquisition, training of crew, and creation of support facilities for the undersea craft.

Women's march an 'entry point' for a new activist wave

Heidi M Przybyla , USA TODAY Published 2:20 p.m. ET Jan. 5, 2017

There’s grief over Hillary Clinton’s election loss among the 200,000 women planning to march on Washington the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration Jan. 20, but those organizing the Women's March on Washington said the event is about far more than that. For the women coming as far away as California and Hawaii, there’s concern that women’s rights could be rolled back by Congress and the new Republican White House. These include some of the causes women fought for dating to the suffragette convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, N.Y. — such as affordable health care. The women planning to gather in Washington on Jan. 21 haven't been corralled by an outside interest group. They started responding to a Facebook event page created by retired Hawaii attorney Teresa Shook on election night. They're coming on their own, mainly on chartered buses from large cities and smaller locales or are driving or flying themselves. Various women's groups, such as those supporting birth control and abortion rights, are coming to them. For many women, it’s the first time they’ve been involved in civic activism — among the dozens of independent coordinators at the state level are yoga teachers and fashion designers. That spontaneous outburst of activism has posed some of the event's early problems, as it has struggled to find a cohesive theme and organization. “This is not only historical for us and our generation,” said Carmen Perez, who will turn 40 on the day of the march, “but also the fact that this is the first mass mobilization after a president steps into office.The march will begin with a rally near the Capitol building, and it’s among about 100 taking place across the country and internationally, including in London. How much of an impact? The diversity of concerns driving participants to the nation's capital makes it unclear how much impact they’ll have on the agenda of the incoming administration. Organizers hope the significance of the march, bringing together more than 100 different interest groups including the Sierra Club, NAACP and MoveOn.org, will be a web of activism spun in its aftermath. Much like the conservative Tea Party formed as a grass-roots movement, organizers see the event as the start of a wave of activism on the left. “We see this as the first convening,” said Janaye Ingram, the head of logistics. “New alliances will be forged through this effort.” They enlisted star power and support from a previous generation of activists: labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta joins feminist icon Gloria Steinem and civil rights activist Harry Belafonte as honorary co-chairs. Some of the organizers, such as Perez and Tamika Mallory, worked with Belafonte's non-profit Gathering for Justice. “The rhetoric of the past year alarmed people, it galvanized people,” said Cassady Fendlay, communication director for the march. “But we also recognize these issues didn’t just happen in the past year.” She cast the march not as a Trump protest but an attempt “to speak to all levels of government.” The march started with Shook and has blossomed into a diverse coalition of women — and some men — coming together to highlight their concern over a broader array of issues, including criminal justice and climate change. Perez called the event an “entry point” for many women to get involved in their communities. “We hope it will ignite a spark in them to go back to their communities and do something,” she said. Interest groups filling the void The last time this many women marched on Washington was in 1913, the day before Woodrow Wilson was inaugurated, when a parade of more than 5,000 women fought for the right to vote, according to University of Scranton political historian Jean Harris. Though this moment in history is far different — those protests became violent as women were attacked and the police stood by — many of the issues the suffragettes talked about going back to Seneca Falls in 1848, including equal pay mandates and affordable child care, remain unfinished business. “We’ve been trying to move forward, but at this point, women have to fight just to maintain what they have,” Harris said. “Having this march right now is important to say we’re not going to take this. We’re watching," Harris said. Some of the marchers acknowledged that there isn’t a cohesive message, and some booked their flights and hotels in a state of shock after Clinton’s loss. “All of this disappointment rolls into one giant ‘I’m going to fly to D.C.' ” said Elizabeth Nash, state issue manager at the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive rights research group. Since then, concerns among women’s rights activists have crystallized, said Nash, who points to state-level trends working their way to Washington. Though Trump’s daughter Ivanka pushed for paid maternity leave during the campaign, it is not emerging as a top priority of the new White House, and the list of women's concerns is long. Take abortion restrictions. The average number of restrictions passed from 1980 through 2009 was 16 per year, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data provided by Guttmacher. From 2010 through 2016, the average was 61. These include ultrasound and fetal heartbeat mandates, and states such as Kansas and Indiana are among those that far outpace others. “The threat is real,” said Nash, who will join the march. “We’ve been at this point at the state level for several years where there are state legislatures and governors willing and eager to limit abortion access. … At the federal level, we haven’t seen this same threat for a very long time,” she said. Aside from appointing Supreme Court justices who could seek to overturn the decision in 1973 that established a woman’s right to abortion, Roe v Wade, there are other things that could happen more immediately. This includes Congress rolling back funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides free breast cancer screening and health services. U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that Republicans would cut the group's funding as part of repealing Obamacare. The same goes for contraception coverage provided under the Affordable Care Act, as well as access to mammograms with no co-pay or deductible. Since more women receive Medicare than men, changes to the program would disproportionately hurt them. “Trump and the Republican Party’s mission to repeal the Affordable Care Act, gut Medicare and turn back the clock on reproductive health and women’s economic security will hurt women and families across the country,” said Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY's List, which works to elect pro-abortion-rights Democratic female lawmakers. “We can’t afford to go back to a time where just being a woman was considered a pre-existing condition or roll back the progress we’ve made on combating discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation. "We’ll be fighting Day One of a Trump presidency,” Schriock said. The Trump transition team did not respond to a request for comment. Paying for the march According to the event organizers, they’ve raised $1 million of the estimated $2 million needed to cover the costs of putting on the event. Online merchandisers are doing their part. Groups such as Hillary’s Nasty Woman Society target women on Facebook with ads selling march-themed shirts bearing the logo “Women’s rights are human rights,” a phrase coined by Clinton in a speech in Beijing in 1995. During one of their debates, Trump called Clinton a "nasty woman." One of the hoodies marked “best seller” reads, “I never dreamed I’d grow up to be a nasty woman. But here I am, killing it.” “Women are angry, and women are getting involved, and that’s the key, that this march mobilized women and that they work with the anger and use it and don’t let it drop,” Harris said.

GOP to defund Planned Parenthood in ObamaCare repeal

By Peter Sullivan - 01/05/17 12:23 PM EST

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Thursday that defunding Planned Parenthood will be included as part of a bill to repeal ObamaCare. Ryan said cutting off federal funds to the organization will be included in a “reconciliation” bill that also repeals the core of ObamaCare. The reconciliation process prevents Democrats from launching a filibuster against the measure, meaning Republicans won't need 60 votes to win on defunding. “Planned Parenthood legislation will be in our reconciliation bill,” Ryan said, without providing any more details. The reconciliation bill that Republicans passed as a test run last year cut off funding for Planned Parenthood for one year. Defunding Planned Parenthood is a major priority for anti-abortion groups. Including it in the repeal bill could cause a problem for some centrists like Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), though.

Obama Is No Friend of Jews or Christians

By Rev. Mark H. Creech , Christian Post Columnist

Jan 4, 2017 | 7:14 AM

Last year, Judson Phillips wrote in the Washington Times something apparent to anyone politically astute. He said, "It is beyond debate that America has a president who is cheering for and working for our enemies. We have a president who wants to see nations that hate America and an ideology of evil triumph over America as well as the Western values of freedom and liberty." Now the President has instructed his U.N. Ambassador not to veto a resolution condemning our best friend of democracy in the middle-east for building "settlements" on disputed lands. Yet the compromises Israel has made in the past over such territories have not produced peace, but only emboldened her enemies with more acts of terror. A two state solution? Twelve years after his death, the promise of Yasser Arafat essentially remains the mantra of Palestinian leaders: "We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem." Columnist CAL Thomas got it right in his own Washington Times op-ed Wednesday when he noted, "The U.S. abstention will inevitably invite stepped-up attacks against Israelis, as well as calls for more boycotts by the European Union, whose ugly anti-Semitic past and present is well documented." Someone once wrote, "Don't fear the enemy that attacks you, but the fake friend that hugs you." There is something fearfully wrong about President Obama. He has an affinity for those who despise the children of Abraham, as well as spiritual Israel, the church of Jesus Christ. Why is this? Socialists, like the President, whether consciously or subconsciously, find Judaism and Christianity as primary obstacles to the collective objectives of the state. Marxism rejects a spirit of independence separate from the state. It denies the right to build a life based on one's own achievements, skill, creativity, and labor. It has no authority higher than the state itself. Judaism and Christianity, however, declare just the opposite — that God's will and incontrovertible law is the source of men's rights. These rights are inalienable, not granted nor can they be taken by the government, and among them is the right to life, liberty, and one's property This even explains, in some degree, the president's favoritism toward Islamic countries. Marxism sees all religious practice arising out of exploitation. Religion is "the opiate of the people" — something used to deal with life's oppressors. Ben Shapiro, political commentator and author, explains the connection well when he writes: "President Obama believes, like many on the left, that Western civilization was founded in racism, sexism, homophobia, and other bigotry — and that Christianity, as its wellspring, provided that impetus ... Obama believes that Western civilization has exploited the rest of the world, and that it, therefore, bears culpability for the poverty that gave rise to the Islamic wave. Muslims are benighted victims of poverty; Christianity made them victims of poverty in the first place ... As Dinesh D'Souza puts it, Obama is an anti-colonialist and believes "that the rich countries got rich by looting the poor countries, and that within the rich countries, plutocratic and corporate elites continue to exploit ordinary citizens." Taken one step further, those rich countries — Christian countries — exploited non-Christian countries, impoverishing them and opening them to the opium of Islam." The President is genuinely no friend of Judeo-Christian teaching. He says he's a friend. He even says that he's a Christian, but he treacherously knifes Israel in the back — the same way he's been betraying and undermining a Christian America.

Don’t Make Yourself A Target For Predators – Be Ready – Be Aware

By Ray Gano - January 6, 2017

By now we have all heard about the for black thug low-lifes who kidnapped a handicapped kid and beat and tortured him for close to 48 hours. This is sickening and it would not upset me in the least to see these four taking to the center of town and a public hanging take place. These four sub-humans are out and out predators. They prey on the weak and what is sickening is that they enjoyed it. This is why these individuals are sub-human and demon possessed. They abducted a person who was not able to protect himself, nor understood how to be situationally aware. They are the perfect definition of a predator. Yes, this is what our society has created and this is what we now need to keep an eye out for, predators like this. That means that we need to start improving our situational awareness and be ahead of the game when predators are in the vicinity. One of your best weapons against the predator is being aware of him / her. See, predators are cowards. They usually act in packs and there is usually an alpha dog who is the leader. The alpha will always sends in a beta dog to test the victim. If the beta dog can handle it, the rest of the pack might come in, but if the beta is taken out, the pack flees. The key is constantly watching out for suspicious people. Believe it or not, by you having your radar on high, predators will most likely leave you alone. They do not want a fight, they want easy prey. So, if you look like you know what is going on around you, the predator will tend to choose another victim that is weaker and not as aware. Survival Means Developing Situational Awareness Situational awareness is something that you need to practice and basically you can cultivate it by generally keeping tabs on your surroundings. This was drilled into me when I served in Special Ops. We were told to always “Check your six” – meaning to keep an eye on what is happening behind you. Whenever I go into a restaurant or someplace where I am seated, I like “keeping my back to the wall” with the doors in sight as well as knowing alternate exits. Seems like a lot to remember and being a tad paranoid helps. So, to help you develop this, here are some things that I do and teach my students. 1 – OODA Loop = Observe, Orient, Decide, Act – This is the key to situational awareness. By observing your surroundings, orienting yourself to entries, exits, choke points – Decide what you are going to do and then take action. Example. I am coming out of Walmart. I am pushing a cart. I tend to park towards the back where I can put space between my car and others. I walk down the middle of the parking isle where most people will either stick to one side of the parked cars or the other. By walking in the middle of the road, you are less of a target. As I am walking I am constantly scanning the area looking to ambush points. If I see one I will either pick up speed or avoid that are by moving more to one side or the other. Once I get to my car, if there is another car parked by it I will take a wide swing so that I can take in as much visual information as possible checking out the car next to mine. IF there is someone in that car, I go into a higher alert status, maybe keep my hand close to a weapon and be ready for an attack. If my wife is with me, I will usually have her open the back of the car, put stuff in as I maintain security. I will then have her take the cart back and I will watch her so that she is a safe distance and then I will get in the car and pick her up at the front door area. This allows her to avoid coming close to the suspected car and the potential attacker that is in the vehicle. Through this entire process, I am constantly doing the OODA Loop – Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. – Repeat. The repeat part is why it is a loop. You constantly take in information, make a decision and then act. 2- Learn to Predict Events – As your Situational Awareness grows and getting better, you will start noticing the ability to project / predict possible situations around you. By running your OODA Loop over and over, your brain will start taking this information and begin to “think ahead.” It (your brain) takes in the information, determines if there is a danger, possible danger or determine that there is no danger at all. Basically, what your brain is doing is processing “cause and effect” and predict an accurate outcome. You are not seeing into the future, your attention to detail is getting better, thus know what will happen in the next second or two based on that attention to detail. 3 – Trust Your Instinct / Feelings – God has put into us a sixth sense where you just know that you know something is not right. Pay attention to that, do not blow it off thinking that you are just imagining something. Ignoring a gut feeling that things are not right can cause you to lose proper situational awareness. This clue is one of the most reliable because the body is able to detect stimulus long before we have consciously put it all together. This is part of “predicting events” – listening to your gut and then getting the heck out of dodge. 4 – Identify Elements Around You – When developing your Situational Awareness it is important to identify elements within your environment. Remember the parked car that I talked about earlier? When we got out of our car there was no vehicle around. If you remember I stated that I like parking towards the back of the lot. When we returned I instantly asked myself “why is there a car parked next to mine? By identifying elements that are around you, you will start to then identify the threats and possible threats. Now, take this a step further and start including objects, events, people and any other environmental factors. Start paying attention to locations, conditions and actions of the elements around you. All of these steps sound like it’s a lot, but believe it or not, you probably do a lot of this already, but it is more subconscious thinking than being Situationally Alert. These skills that I have discussed here you are already using them on a daily basis. What you need to do is use them more and become cognoscente of what you are doing. That cognoscente behavior is Situational Awareness. Survival Means Having A Weapon/s So You Can Defend Yourself More and more states are coming on board with concealed carry, i.e. carrying a gun to protect yourself. I don’t want to cover that here, but I have written an entire article on titled “My Gun Line-up – You can read it here – http://raygano.com/my-gun-lineup/  But if you find yourself in a situation it is very wise of you to carry not just one weapon, but carry multiple weapons on you at the same time. Everyday I usually have 2-3 weapons on me and if I am going to the big city, I have 4-5. Here are the weapons that I HIGHLY recommend that you get and arm yourself with. Police Grade Pepper Foam & Gel – In many of my articles I recommend SABRE Red Pepper Foam as a first form of defense type weapon. It is inexpensive enough where you can purchase 2-3 cans so that you place some in areas ready to use like in the car, in your pocket / purse, on a key chain, on your belt, etc. NOW… why foam? First – If you are outdoors and there is a slight breeze, you will not have the liquid pepper spray blow back in your direction. Second – the foam is sticky and when it makes contact it instantly melts. This has about an 8 – 10 foot range and can spray multiple targets with this foam. SABRE Pepper Foam – http://amzn.to/2fovQYi  Another solution and something that will give you more distance between you and the thugs is SABRE Pepper Gel. Like the foam, the gel sprays and does not blow back if there is a breeze going. Also, because it is a gel, it will shoot further than the foam and has a range of 18 feet. Another plus with this is that SABRE includes a belt holster articles. ti-lite-closed This is probably my #1 go to fighting weapon / knife. PRO – I like that you can carry this in your hand and it doubles as a kubaton. It is large enough to really do some damage without even deploying the knife. This can be used to control a person sitting in a pew by applying pressure techniques used with the kubaton. PRO – The quillion, the little hook at the base of the knife blade, also is a very mean weapon in and of itself, The rough thumb grooves on the quillion will do damage if you use this as a kubaton. You can hook a chin, rip an eye, do a number of kubaton moves where the quillion will do some major extra damage. cold-steel-ti-lite-ray-gano-edcPRO – You can deploy the knife as it is pulled out of the pocket by “snagging” the quillion on the pocket edge. This is a move that needs to be practiced as well, but you will have a great tactical advantage just taking the knife out of your pocket and it deploying as you remove it. PRO – With some practice, you can learn to flick open this knife one handed. So, if you are using it in a kubaton style, it is nothing to flick it in the process of a swing or block and deploy the 6” razor sharp blade. NOTE – this knife is literally a “pocket sword” it is a good 13 inches long and will give you some good distance between you and the attacker. Because this is such a large knife, check your local laws to make sure it is carry legal. PRO – Cost – ON SALE – $48.88 w/ free shipping Cold Steel Ti-Lite 6″ – http://tinyurl.com/pz-cs-ti-lite-6inch  Streetwise POLICE FORCE 9,200,000 Volt TACTICAL Stun Gun Flashlight – This is a great stun gun. It is smaller in diameter, so it is easily concealed and also made to look like a flashlight. It small enough to conceal and keep in the hand without it being obvious that you have a stun gun in your hand. So it is an excellent weapon that you can carry deployed while walking around and people will not take much notice of it. streetwise-stungun Another great point about this stun gun is that it fits the budget. It runs around $25 – $30 dollars and at this price, you can purchase several of these so that both you and your spouse has one on them. This also has a good lanyard on it so that if you do lose your grip, it will not fall to the ground and you can easily bring it back into your hand. PRO – Slim, small and easily concealed PRO – 9,000,000 volts and rechargeable – that is a lot of volts you will send through a person Streetwise POLICE FORCE 9,200,000 Volt TACTICAL Stun Gun – http://tinyurl.com/PZ-Streetwise-Stun-Light  There are other weapons that you and your team can look into like collapsible batons, fighting sticks, saps, ect. The negative is that with some of these weapons, you need to check your local laws in using them. Weapons like the collapsible baton are against the law to use in many states. Uzi Tactical Pen – Folks, I love this pen and I have owned this for over 7 years. Back then I bought it for around $14.00. The price today is $22.00 and it is still a great purchase. It has some nice weight but not too heavy and really fits nicely in my hand. You can fill it with any sort of ink cartage. I personally like the .07 gel ink cartage because I like a thicker line when I write. uzi-tac-pen-web The great thing is that I have carried this in airports and other “secure” areas and it has never been taken from me. Heck, even it is does, I just buy another one off of amazon. This is truly a worth while pen and a great weapon to have on hand. UZI Tactical Pen – http://amzn.to/2hWmaAo  Got Weapons – Now Start Training Having weapons is great, but if we do not train, we will not be able to fight if we are called to do so. We need to be ready and the best way is to train. Get out and train pulling out your pepper spray. Practice taking out the TI-Lite knife and using it as a fist weapon. Find a punching bag or make one with some rice filled in a few pillow cases. Once you have that, hang it up somewhere against a wall and start punching.wing-chun-punching-bagIn fact, here is the punching bag I have. The Wing Chun Punching Canvas Wall Bag with Striking Surface 3-section This is a very well built bag. Once you get it you can either fill it with sand or with what they recommend, rice. The leather pads also help protect the hand from getting all marred up like you normally do when working with canvas. Once you have it filled, go hang it up on a wall and start punching away. This is great training and you will be amazed at the arm strength you attain just by punching the bag daily. This bag is only $36.00 and shipping is free. Not a bad deal at all for the quality you are getting. Wing Chun Punching Bag – http://amzn.to/2gkkt31  Conclusion These four sub-human dirtbag thugs are in existence because we have allowed it by enabling them and empowering them. Like it or not, they have become bullies and how you fight the bully is pushing back and getting in their face. A lot of times if you stand up to the bully, they will back down, or you take out the leader and the rest will back off. You do this by being situationally aware, which makes you ready and not backing down. We need to pull on the big boy / girl panties and stop allowing these degenerate kids thinking that acting like spoiled brats is ok. It is time to pull out the pepper spray, knife, stun gun and if we have to, don’t be afraid to use it. If one of these bully thugs get in you face, be ready and take them out. If enough of us stand up and let them know we are not going to take this sort of behavior any more and set boundaries, then we will see the predators start being more cautious instead of having the free rein that they have today. It is time to start pushing back, showing our teeth and letting them feel our bite.

Seaborne Fukushima Radiation Plume Hit West Coast, Corporate Media Reported It Dangerously

Japan, Nuclear, Radiation

(EnviroNews DC News Bureau) — “It is not a question any more: radiation produces cancer, and the evidence is good all the way down to the lowest doses,” says the late Dr. John Gofman, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkley, in his book Nuclear Witnesses: Insiders Speak Out. On December 12, 2016, EnviroNews USA‘s own Editor-in-Chief Emerson Urry touched off a firestorm with his news article titled, “It’s Finally Here: Radioactive Plume From Fukushima Makes Landfall on America’s West Coast,” which claimed “medical science and epidemiological studies have demonstrated time and again that there is no safe amount of radiation for a living organism to be subjected to — period. ”In his piece, Urry also exposed other news agencies like NBC, the New York Post, USA Today and The Inquisitr, catching them with their pants down, in the act of repeating the false assertions of the U.S. and Canadian researchers, telling people not to worry about the recently detected low amounts of cesium 134 found in salmon, and that the levels were within “safe” or “accepted” thresholds for human health. [EDITOR’S NOTE: Emerson Urry recused himself from all editorial duties on this news story. Thom Hartmann picked up the article by Urry and read it on his show. Then Hartmann offered up his own journalistic explanation on how radiation works, and addressed the problem with the proclamation that there is a “safe” level of radiation to consume or be exposed to. “As the element is decaying it is throwing off radiation, and the radiation, if it hits the DNA in the nucleolus and the nucleus of a cell, can alter that DNA in ways that can produce things like cancer,” Hartmann said. “Now it can also cause simply the cell to die or it can mutate the cell in all kinds of other weird ways, and so it’s kind of a numbers game. If you irradiate a million cells… you might get two or three that become cancerous. That’s all it takes, right? You’ve got cancer,” Hartmann continued in his video report. “The cesium could cause no cancer, or it could cause cancer in the first cell it irradiates. To say that there is a safe level of radiation is frankly wrong. It’s just wrong.” Urry said later in a statement, “It’s one thing for the media to regurgitate trivial facts on trivial matters, but to blindly repeat that consuming low levels of radiation is ‘safe,’ is irresponsible reporting and borders on dangerous. News editors should take care to do their due diligence on a matter as serious as leading readers to believe consuming any amount of radiation is ‘safe’ when medical science and epidemiology, dating back 50 years to the present, have demonstrated repeatedly that that’s just not true. Even the smallest exposures increase the risk of cancer to the subject.” According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry’s (ATSDR) report titled, “Public Health Statement for Cesium” from 2004, “stable and radioactive cesium can enter your body from the food you eat or the water you drink, from the air you breathe, or from contact with your skin. When you eat, drink, breathe, or touch things containing cesium compounds that can easily be dissolved in water, cesium enters your blood and is carried to all parts of your body… No known taste or odor is associated with cesium compounds.” Cesium is similar enough to potassium that it can fool the body. This results in its bioaccumulation. When cesium enters the biological system of a fish, which is then eaten by a larger fish, the larger fish becomes contaminated. As the larger fish eats more, it becomes more contaminated. The cesium accumulates in its body. When a person eats that fish, he or she also ingests the cesium that hasn’t decayed or been excreted. The more seafood that person eats, the more radioactive material he or she will be exposed to. The researchers who discovered the cesium recently also made the mistake of equating the dangers of consuming seaborne isotopes to that of receiving an x-ray, missing the point entirely that ingested or inhaled “internal particle emitters” are known to be especially hazardous. “Consuming food containing radionuclides is particularly dangerous. If an individual ingests or inhales a radioactive particle, it continues to irradiate the body as long as it remains radioactive and stays in the body,” said Dr. Alan Lockwood, MD in an article on Fox News Health. “Children are much more susceptible to the effects of radiation and stand a much greater chance of developing cancer than adults,” said Andrew Kanter, MD, President of the Board for Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) in that same Fox News Health article. “So it is particularly dangerous when they consume radioactive food or water.” Those who might expect the government to protect them from contamination by radiation have only to look at the downwinder situation in Utah or the consequences of Gofman’s research in the late 1960s. According to Gofman’s obituary in the L.A. Times, “Gofman and his colleague at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Arthur R. Tamplin, developed data in 1969 showing that the risk from low doses of radiation was 20 times higher than stated by the government. Their publication of the data, despite strong efforts to censor it, led them to lose virtually all of their research funding and, eventually, their positions at the government laboratory.” Their conclusions were for the most part, later validated. “There is no safe level of radionuclide exposure, whether from food, water or other sources, period,” said Jeff Patterson, DO, immediate past President of PSR, in late March of 2011 in the immediate aftermath of the meltdowns. “Exposure to radionuclides, such as iodine 131 and cesium 137, increases the incidence of cancer. For this reason, every effort must be taken to minimize the radionuclide content in food and water.” “There is no safe dose of radiation,” says Prof. Edward P. Radford, Physician and Epidemiologist as quoted by GreenMedInfo. In an email to EnviroNews, nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen said Japan had raised the maximum allowable exposure by 20 times the previous number for civilians to be able to return to their homes. The U.S. and the EPA have considered such plans in the case of a nuclear accident. In food, the U.S. has an allowable dosage of radiation that is 12 times what Japan allows. “Corporations get the benefit, civilians take the risk,” Gundersen wrote. While Urry and Hartmann have sounded the alarm, there remain unanswered questions that desperately need to be resolved. Who will clean up the contamination in the food chain? How much radiation exposure will governments continue to say is safe in spite of the medical research? How can people trust what’s on their plate and in their corporate owned media? http://www.environews.tv/121716-no-safe-level-period-media-got-dangerously-wrong-fukushima-radiation-hitting-west-coast/

Quake swarm near the California-Mexico border gets scientists' attention

By Rong-Gong Lin 11 - Contact Reporter January 2, 2017 3:00 am

As a swarm of more than 250 small earthquakes have struck since New Year’s Eve near the California-Mexico border, causing unease among residents and attention from scientists. The strongest earthquake in the sequence was magnitude 3.9, striking directly underneath the town of Brawley, about 170 miles southeast of Los Angeles. The earthquakes struck in the southern end of the Brawley Seismic Zone, a seismically active region where tectonic plates are moving away from each other and the Earth’s crust is getting stretched out “and basically adding land,” said Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson. The Brawley Seismic Zone is particularly important to watch because it is the region that connects the San Andreas and Imperial faults, both of which can produce damaging earthquakes. The seismic zone extends for about 30 miles from the city of Brawley, across the Salton Sea’s southern half, and ends near Bombay Beach. Hauksson was closely monitoring the swarm that began Saturday, as there was a chance that an earthquake of magnitude 5 or larger could be triggered. “There’s always reason to be concerned for a bigger earthquake,” Hauksson said. But by Sunday night, the possibility of the swarm triggering a larger event had largely receded. The southern Brawley Seismic Zone is close in proximity to the Imperial fault. The Imperial fault has caused two major earthquakes in recent decades. In 1979, a magnitude-6.5 earthquake sent violent shaking into El Centro, injuring 91 and causing so much damage to the concrete Imperial County Services Building that it had to be demolished. There was major damage to the irrigation system in the Imperial Valley, a desert region that is a prolific producer of salad vegetables during the winter. Levees lining the All-American Canal, which funnels water from the Colorado River, collapsed along an eight-mile stretch. The magnitude-7.1 earthquake that hit El Centro in 1940 claimed nine lives and swayed buildings as far away as Los Angeles. Irrigation systems were damaged, and railroad tracks were left warped where they crossed the fault. Earthquake swarms that occur in the other end of the Brawley Seismic Zone — to the north — could trigger a major event on the San Andreas fault, one of California’s most dangerous, that could send catastrophic shaking into Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. In late September, one such swarm began in the northern Brawley Seismic Zone, with three measuring above magnitude 4. That event led the U.S. Geological Survey to warn that chances of a magnitude 7 or greater earthquake on the San Andreas fault had risen as a result of the swarm. Another swarm of small earthquakes, topping out at magnitude 3.5, struck the town of Niland near the eastern shore of the Salton Sea on Halloween. The last major earthquake to hit Brawley was in 2012, registering at magnitude 5.4. Brawley Mayor Sam Couchman said the earthquakes have placed the city of 26,000 on edge since Saturday afternoon. The combination of the earthquakes and New Year’s pyrotechnics spooked some of the town’s dogs, who went missing, he said. “We’re just kind of listening to it, and when you can hear it coming, it’ll rattle things,” Couchman said. “Last night, we had the rain, the earthquakes, and the fireworks. “All we needed were frogs and locusts.”

Mexico Plunges into Fresh Crisis as Fury Swells over Gas Prices

Published 31 December 2016

Popular assemblies, social media, politicians and even drug cartels are reacting with rage to the neoliberal "gasolinazo" of President Peña Nieto. Despite the holiday season and entertaining stories about Rubi's quinceñera, the people of Mexico are entering the New Year in a state of rage and anxiety, with protests planned for Sunday to strongly denounce the government's huge hike in gasoline prices. The strong rise in prices has been called the "gasolinazo" in Spanish, which roughly translates to "gasoline-punch." Unpopular President Enrique Pena Nieto has promised that fuel prices will fall thanks to his neoliberal 2014 energy reforms, which dismantled the seven-decade-old national ownership of petroleum resources by state-owned firm Pemex. The government plans to end subsidies and let the market dictate prices in March, but the already-strained Mexican people will feel the pinch at the pump before they start falling. The finance ministry announced Tuesday that the price of gasoline would increase by as much as 20.1 percent to 88 cents per liter on Jan. 1, while diesel would rise by 16.5 percent to 83 cents. The price ceiling will be adjusted daily starting Feb. 18, before letting supply and demand determine them in March. Around 100 protestors blocked a service station in the Pacific Coast resort of Acapulco on Friday, while on Saturday an assembly of popular organizations in Chihuahua state's capital pledged to block all commercial transportation from entering or exiting the city as a means toward paralyzing the economy and pressuring the federal government to reverse the hikes. The assembly of people's organizations also announced their intention to block major highways and railways in response to what they see as a neoliberal looting of Mexico and handover of its resources to private capital, according to a statement. "Mexican Prosperity 2017": Mexico's future depicted as a scene from the gas-depleted world of 1981 film The Road Warrior Meanwhile, Jalisco authorities are investigating reports that the country's powerful Jalisco New Generation cartel has entered the fray, threatening to torch gas stations in response to the price hikes. "They are speculating in order to obtain million dollar profits from the majority of the people who don't make even a minimum wage ... we have already realized that the (shortage) of fuel is because dealers don't want to sell fuel unless they can do so at a profit, all of our people are now ready to start the mission," the cartel stated in a WhatsApp message circulating in Jalisco. A protest is planned in the capital on Sunday while Mexicans were urged on social media to block service stations on Monday. People were also encouraged to boycott fuel for three days. Before the price announcement, fuel shortages had already angered Mexicans in several states. "The fuel price increase causes outrage. People are right: it's not fair. I support each family, I share their outrage and anger," Aristoteles Sandoval, the governor of western Jalisco state, wrote on Twitter. Sandoval's criticism drew particular attention because he is a member of Peña Nieto's ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party or PRI. Furious opposition governors plan to meet with federal government officials next week to discuss the price hike. "We just had a security meeting (between governors and Peña Nieto) days ago and there was not one comment about this situation," said Mexico City's Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera, a member of the opposition Party of the Democratic Revolution or PRD. The protests are the latest expression of widespread antipathy toward Peña Nieto, whose popularity has plummeted below 25 percent this year due to his government's widespread perception of collusion with cartels and failure to address drug-related violence, disappointing economic growth, violent repression of social movements and his unpopular decision to host Donald Trump before the anti-immigrant Republican won the U.S. presidential election. Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade defended the fuel price increase, saying it would not trigger more inflation and that eventually the "final price for consumers will be among the most competitive in the world." The fall in global oil prices in recent years has forced the government to cut its budget and slash spending at Pemex. And the peso has fallen to historic lows due to Trump's protectionist rhetoric against Mexico. In Mexico City, service station worker Maria de la Luz Lopez worried that the price increases could hurt her. "I'm afraid that to compensate for the increase, (customers) will no longer give us tips," said Lopez who, like many in her field, does not earn a wage and depends on the generosity of drivers.

Former Clinton Foundation CEO Missing Since October 2016 - #WheresEric Internet Chatter Reaches A Fevered Pitch

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine January 2, 2017

Former Clinton Foundation CEO, Eric Braverman, was hired in July 2013, supposedly backed by Chelsea Clinton to "impose McKinsey-like management rigor," to the foundation. The foundation board approved a $395,000 salary, plus bonuses, then voted to extend his term through 2017. Weeks after that vote to extend his board term, Braverman abruptly quit in January 2015. According to a Politico article about Braverman from March 2015, "his exit stemmed partly from a power struggle inside the foundation between and among the coterie of Clinton loyalists who have surrounded the former president for decades and who helped start and run the foundation." Six days after that Politico story was published and about two months after Braverman resigned, Joe Scarborough, host of Morning Joe on MSNBC, tweeted "A source close to the Clintons tell @ron_fournier to "follow the money" and find the real HRC scandal." According to leaked emails published by Wikileaks from the Podesta emails, Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden emailed Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta "@JoeNBC: A source close to the Clintons tell @ron_fournier to "follow the money" and find the real HRC scandal. http://t.co/lPTQY0L0o4  - I'm hoping someone is keeping tabs on Doug Band. Quote in here is from someone who worked in Clinton Foundation." Podesta responded with one name "Eric Braverman." To which Tanden replied "Holy Moses." That same month is when the news of Clinton's private email server broke nationally, became major headline news. Wikileaks published those emails during the height of the election season, in October 2016, around the same time that Eric Braverman disappeared from public view. His last public activity can be traced to an October 12, 2016 retweet. A look at his Twitter history shows he was wasn't very active, as the one before that was on August 3rd and before that, one in June. Is it a coincidence that Braverman cannot be contacted in any manner, from emails sent to him and to Yale University, where he is still listed for Spring 2017 classes in the School of Management and the law school, all not responded to? Rachel Alexander from Stream, writes the following: "I left a voicemail on Braverman’s personal phone and sent him an email, but received no response. He is still listed as a lecturer at Yale University and, contrary to some reports, there is a record of his lectures going back several years. I contacted the press office and Braverman’s department at Yale and received no response." ANP has also attempted to reach out to Braverman as well as contacts connected to him, to no avail. Videographer George Webb, who runs a popular YouTube channel has been tracking Braverman's disappearance, providing daily feature video updates, and believes Braverman officially went missing 12 days after his last tweet, on October 24, 2016, which was just two days after Wikileaks published the Podesta email where it became public knowledge that Podesta suspected Braverman of being behind the "follow the money and find the real HRC scandal," scoop given to Ron Fournier." By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine Internet chatter and conspiracy theories have surrounded Braverman's disappearance from the public, originating with a rumor that he had sought asylum from Russia, but due to his intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the Clinton Foundation, in conjunction with the fact that five FBI bureaus across the country, in New York, Little Rock, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Miami , are all involved in a massive probe of the Clinton Foundation, it is more likely that Braverman is in protective custody as witness to the crimes he uncovered during his tenure at the Clinton Foundation, since no official missing persons report has been filed on him. In November 2016, Brett Bauer from Fox News reporters that FBI sources believed the Clinton Foundation case was moving towards "likely an indictment." Transcript via Real Clear Politics: BRET BAIER: Breaking news tonight -- two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations into the Clinton emails and the Clinton Foundation tell Fox the following: The investigation looking into possible pay-for-play interaction between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Foundation has been going on for more than a year. Led by the white collar crime division, public corruption branch of the criminal investigative division of the FBI. The Clinton Foundation investigation is a, quote, "very high priority." Agents have interviewed and reinterviewed multiple people about the Foundation case, and even before the WikiLeaks dumps, agents say they have collected a great deal of evidence. Pressed on that, one sources said, quote, "a lot of it," and "there is an avalanche of new information coming every day." Some of it from WikiLeaks, some of it from new emails. The agents are actively and aggressively pursuing this case. They will be going back to interview the same people again, some for the third time. As a result of the limited immunity deals to top aides, including Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, the Justice Department had tentatively agreed that the FBI would destroy those laptops after a narrow review. We are told definitively that has not happened. Those devices are currently in the FBI field office here in Washington, D.C. and are being exploited. The source points out that any immunity deal is null and void if any subject lied at any point in the investigation. Another interesting point that we would remiss to ignore is how it became public knowledge that immunity deals had been offered to Clinton aides, regarding the investigations, not one peep from the FBI, nor the mainstream media, has mentioned any such "deal" for Braverman, a man who held the CEO position for the Foundation for over a year, and would be far more knowledgeable about any crimes committed by the Clinton Foundation. #WheresEric has now been created as a hashtag on Twitter and depending on whether we go from the October 12 retweet by Braverman or the videographer's date of October 24th, he has now been missing anywhere from 70 to 82 days. It all comes back to the "follow the money to find the real HRC scandal," because the private server use, the internal corruption and collusion by the DNC and the Clinton campaign, and the mainstream media, makes for good headlines, but when you follow the money, all roads lead back to the Clinton Foundation, under investigations by multiple FBI bureaus, and the man that has been missing for well over two months was in a position to know all of their dirty secrets. Since the initial questions about Braverman's disappearance from the public eye started months ago, all it would take is one public statement, one returned email, one video, for Braverman to dispel all theories, rumors and talk of his disappearance, yet not one word has come from him or anyone that knows him. No public statements saying he is alive and well. ..... nothing. The silence is deafening, and troublesome.

Pope Francis: A Fool or Liar for Islam?

The pontiff's shocking statements on "Christians" who kill.

August 2, 2016 Raymond Ibrahim

At a time when Muslims all around the world are terrorizing and slaughtering non-Muslims in the name of Islam, Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, continues trying to distance Islam from violence. Last Sunday a journalist asked him about the recent and “barbarous assassination of Fr. Jacques Hamel” in France, and how the priest was clearly “killed in the name of Islam.” To this Francis replied that he doesn’t like speaking about Islamic violence because there is plenty of Christian violence as well… [He] said that every day when he browses the newspapers, he sees violence in Italy perpetrated by Christians: “this one who has murdered his girlfriend, another who has murdered the mother-in-law… and these are baptized Catholics! There are violent Catholics! If I speak of Islamic violence, I must speak of Catholic violence. And no, not all Muslims are violent, not all Catholics are violent. It is like a fruit salad; there’s everything.” Is the Pope really that dense? Is he incapable of distinguishing between violence committed in the name of a religion, and violence committed in contradiction of a religion? Yes, Catholics—and people of all religions, sects, creeds—commit violence. That is because humans are prone to violence (or, to use Christian language that some—maybe not Francis—might understand, humans are fallen creatures). And yes, the Catholics that Francis’ cites do not commit crimes—murdering girlfriends and mother-in-law—because of any teaching contained in Christianity or Catholicism; on the contrary, Christian teachings of mercy and forgiveness are meant to counter such impulses. On the other hand, the violence that Muslims are committing around the world—the beheadings, the sex slavery, the church burnings—are indeed contained in and a product of Islam, and they have been from day one. Francis continued offering half-truths in the interview. After he acknowledged that there are “violent persons of this religion [Islam],” he immediately added that “in pretty much every religion there is always a small group of fundamentalists. Fundamentalists. We have them.” This is another sloppy generalization. Sure, “in pretty much every religion there is always a small group of fundamentalists,” but that which is “fundamental” to them widely differs. One may say that Muslim and Christian fundamentalists adhere to a literalist/strict reading of their scriptures. While that statement may be true, left unsaid by those who think the issue is settled right there is: what do the Bible and Koran actually teach? The long and short of it is, the Christian fundamentalist will find himself compelled to pray for his persecutors, and, depending on the situation, maybe even turning the other cheek; conversely, the Muslim fundamentalist will find himself attacking, subjugating, plundering, raping, enslaving, and slaughtering non-Muslims. In both cases, the scriptures—Bible and Koran—say so. Not for Francis. Poverty is supposedly the real reason behind all the Islamic violence plaguing the world: Terrorism grows when there are no other options, and when the center of the global economy is the god of money and not the person -- men and women -- this is already the first terrorism! You have cast out the wonder of creation -- man and woman -- and you have put money in its place. This is a basic terrorism against all of humanity! Think about it! This has got to be one of the silliest arguments ever devised to justify terrorism. So the Muslims screaming “Allahu Akbar!” while slaughtering a priest or driving a truck into people in France were suffering from poverty? What about the fact that one of the richest nations in the world—Saudi Arabia—is violent to and intolerant of non-Muslims? What about the fact that there are billions of impoverished non-Muslims—yet, strangely, they do not engage in wanton acts of terror against “infidels” in the name of their religion. What to make of these facts? But apparently none of these questions about scriptures and demographics matter; after all, Francis “knows how Muslims think”: I had a long conversation with the imam, the Grand Imam of the Al-Azhar University, and I know how they think. They [Muslims] seek peace, encounter.” This is just plain sad. Dr. Ahmed al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, arguably the most authoritative Islamic institution in the world, did indeed recently visit Francis and inform him of how Muslims desire peace and harmony with the world. But back home in Egypt, the grand imam and Al Azhar promote an Islam that is virtually indistinguishable from that of ISIS. Indeed, days before he went to take pictures hugging the pope, Tayeb said that it is a criminal offense to apostatize from Islam, and the punishment is death. In response, the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies blasted the grand imam and Al Azhar. After accusing them of being twofaced—preaching a moderate Islam in the West and a radical one in Egypt—the statement concluded with some words that people like Francis should take to heart: http: Combating terrorism and radical religious ideologies will not be accomplished by directing at the West and its international institutions religious dialogues that are open, support international peace and respect freedoms and rights, while internally promoting ideas that contribute to the dissemination of violent extremism through the media and educational curricula of Al Azhar and the mosques. In the end, and when it comes to the question of whether Islam promotes violence against non-Muslims, Pope Francis falls within the ranks of those Western leaders who are either liars or fools, or a little bit of both.

Absolutely Stunning – Leaked Audio of Secretary Kerry Reveals President Obama Intentionally Allowed Rise of ISIS…

Posted on January 1, 2017 by sundance

There are moments within investigative research when your jaw can stand agape as you recognize the scope of what you are reading or hearing. A brutally down-played audio of Secretary John Kerry is just such an occasion. ♦ In August of 2014 President Obama (wearing a tan business suit) gave a press conference where he stated he “did not have a strategy” against ISIS. –Video Link– ♦ Two months later, in October of 2014, Josh Earnest gave a press conference where he stated: “Our ISIS strategy is dependent on something that does not yet exist” –Video Link– However, on September 30th 2016 the New York Times quietly released a leaked audio recording of Secretary John Kerry meeting with multiple factions associated within Syria. When you listen to the audio recording (embed below) it becomes immediately obvious what was going on when both of those 2014 statements were made by the White House. In addition, you discover why this jaw-dropping 2016 leak/story was buried by the U.S. media and how it connects to over 5 years of perplexing U.S. mid-east policy. This evidence within this single story would/should forever remove any credibility toward the U.S. foreign policy under President Obama. It also destroys the credibility of a large number of well known republicans. What the recording reveals is substantive: ♦ First, only regime change, the removal of Bashir Assad, in Syria was the goal for President Obama. This is admitted and outlined by Secretary John Kerry. ♦ Secondly, in order to accomplish this primary goal, the White House was willing to watch the rise of ISIS by placing their bet that ISIS’s success would force Syrian President Bashir Assad to acquiesce toward Obama’s terms and step down. ♦ Thirdly, in order to facilitate the two objectives, Obama and Kerry intentionally gave arms to ISIS and even, arguably, attacked a Syrian government military convoy to stop a strategic attack upon the Islamic extremists killing 80 Syrian soldiers. Pause for a moment and consider those three points carefully before continuing. Because this audio (below), along with accompanying research now surfacing, not only exposes these three points as truth – but also provides the specific evidence toward them. The problem in the Obama/Kerry’s secret strategy became clear when ISIS grew in sufficient strength to give the White House optimism for the scheme – however, instead of capitulation Assad then turned to Russia for help. When Russia came to aid Bashir Assad the Syrian Government began being able to defeat ISIS and the Islamic Extremist elements within Syria. For the hidden plan of Obama/Kerry (and also McCain, Graham, et al), Russia defeating ISIS, al-Qaeda and al-Nusra, upended their objective. The revelations within this leaked audio are simply astounding. The 40-minute discussion took place on the sidelines of a United Nations General Assembly in New York. The meeting took place at the Dutch Mission to the United Nations on Sept. 22nd 2016: […] Kerry’s off-record conversation was apparently with two dozen ‘Syrian civilians’, all from US backed opposition-linked NGO’s in education and medical groups supposedly working in ‘rebel-held’ (aka terrorist-held) areas in Syria. This opposition conclave also included ‘rescue workers’ which can only be ambassadors from the White Helmets, a pseudo NGO which serves as Washington and London’s primary PR front in pursuit of a “No Fly Zone’ in Syria, and it’s being bankrolled by the US, UK, EU and other coalition states to the tune of well over $100 million (so far). (link) Listen to the audio. Key Kerry moments at 02:00, and again at approximately 18:30 forward. The discussion from 18:30 through to 29:00 are exceptionally revealing and should be listened to by anyone who has wondered what was going on in Syria. Kerry even makes mention of the “Responsibility to Protect, or R2P” principle: Reference Links: ♦ New York Times Link – HERE ♦ Analysis via 21st Century Wire – HERE ♦ More Analysis – HERE Against the backdrop of this recording we can reconcile so many historic issues. We already know of a Second Presidential Finding Memo authorizing additional CIA covert action in 2012, this time in Syria. However, unlike the 2011 Libyan operation we do not know the operational name of the second action in 2012 Syria. 2012: WASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said. Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad. (link) Further consider how this Kerry audio tape, and the now transparent Obama policy toward Syria, absolutely confirms our previous research as it is contained with the Benghazi Brief surrounding Syria: (JULY 2012) As they stood outside the commandeered government building in the town of Mohassen, it was hard to distinguish Abu Khuder’s men from any other brigade in the Syrian civil war, in their combat fatigues, T-shirts and beards. But these were not average members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year. They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs. According to Abu Khuder, his men are working closely with the military council that commands the Free Syrian Army brigades in the region. “We meet almost every day,” he said. “We have clear instructions from our [al-Qaida] leadership that if the FSA need our help we should give it. We help them with IEDs and car bombs. Our main talent is in the bombing operations.” Abu Khuder’s men had a lot of experience in bomb-making from Iraq and elsewhere, he added. […] Abu Khuder split with the FSA and pledged allegiance to al-Qaida’s organisation in Syria, the Jabhat al Nusra or Solidarity Front. He let his beard grow and adopted the religious rhetoric of a jihadi, becoming a commander of one their battalions. “The Free Syrian Army has no rules and no military or religious order. Everything happens chaotically,” he said. “Al-Qaida has a law that no one, not even the emir, can break. “The FSA lacks the ability to plan and lacks military experience. That is what [al-Qaida] can bring. They have an organisation that all countries have acknowledged. “In the beginning there were very few. Now, mashallah, there are immigrants joining us and bringing their experience,” he told the gathered people. “Men from Yemen, Saudi, Iraq and Jordan. Yemenis are the best in their religion and discipline and the Iraqis are the worst in everything – even in religion.” At this, one man in the room – an activist in his mid-30s who did not want to be named – said: “So what are you trying to do, Abu Khuder? Are you going to start cutting off hands and make us like Saudi? Is this why we are fighting a revolution?” “[Al-Qaida’s] goal is establishing an Islamic state and not a Syrian state,” he replied. “Those who fear the organisation fear the implementation of Allah’s jurisdiction. If you don’t commit sins there is nothing to fear.” (link – more) al-Qaeda’s goal was to establish the Islamic State, that’s the origin of ISIS. Against the backdrop of ISIS formation in Syria, and understanding the Obama objectives were regime change first and foremost, we can now reconcile all of Obama’s foreign policy surrounding Syria. President Obama, Secretary Clinton and later Secretary Kerry, together with John McCain, and the CIA tentacled team within the Republican party, were willing to support ISIS (under all factional names) in order to overthrow Bashir Assad… …THIS WAS THE POLICY. Nothing else mattered. Now, does THIS also begin to make more sense: What you are about to read is specifically how the Muslim Brotherhood, and ISIS, connect to the Republicans outlined above – and how their individual behaviors within the 2016 election begin to make sense. Perhaps, like us, you will have an ah-ha moment. The “Never Trump” coalition has always consisted of a few noisy and indecent politicians within Washington DC. Senator Ben Sasse, Senator Jeff Flake and Representative Adam Kinzinger the most noteworthy and vitriolic. Whenever CNN, or for that matter any media, want a republican voice to argue against Donald Trump, in the “current days’ outrage du jour”, they call upon Kinzinger first and foremost. He seemingly loves the spotlight as much as he enjoys promoting himself on social media. In essence, he’s a proud #NeverTrumper. We’ll come back to Kinzinger and McMullin in a moment. But first we must place the second set of puzzle pieces on the table. When we did all the exhaustive research into the Benghazi Brief three years ago, one of the pictures that continued to draw our interest was this one: The picture above was taken during a time when Senator John McCain visited Syria, and the Western media were proclaiming there were “moderates” in the opposition to Bashir Assad. Senator McCain proclaimed this 2012 visit to be meeting with the “Free Syrian Army”. [Coincidentally, this was on the same trip where he met Ambassador Chris Stevens at the Benghazi courthouse in Libya for the last time]. However, at the same time McCain was trying to convince the world of moderate Syrian resistance, multiple voices within non-traditional journalism, and a large number of people doing independent research, reached the conclusion that al-qaeda and al-Nusra extremists had completely infiltrated the Syrian resistance groups, and a new militant Islamic network was forming. “2012 NO ISLAM WITHOUT JIHAD” – members of the Free Syrian Army. Abu Khuder and his men fight for al-Qaida. They call themselves the ghuraba’a, or “strangers”, after a famous jihadi poem celebrating Osama bin Laden’s time with his followers in the Afghan mountains, and they are one of a number of jihadi organisations establishing a foothold in the east of the country now that the conflict in Syria has stretched well into its second bloody year. They try to hide their presence. “Some people are worried about carrying the [black] flags,” said Abu Khuder. “They fear America will come and fight us. So we fight in secret. Why give Bashar and the west a pretext?” But their existence is common knowledge in Mohassen. Even passers-by joke with the men about car bombs and IEDs. That network ultimately evidenced and defined itself as the Islamic State, or ISIS. In 2013 and 2014, even though ISIS initially did not have a name, as the hardline extremists in Syria became more openly visible, eventually the western media accepted Raqqa and Aleppo had become the de-facto center of Syrian ISIS operations. In August of 2014 President Obama finally admitted the problem and stated his administration was caught off guard and did not have a strategy to combat them. Back To The Photograph – The importance of the McCain photograph became increasingly interesting because ISIS as an extremist force became increasingly visible. As a direct consequence we were able to identify the ideology of the people in the picture: mccain-in-syria-2-detail-2 There has been some skepticism as to #2 being al-Baghdadi himself, and Senator John McCain has strongly refuted this claim. However, there is more evidence to prove it is Baghdadi than to refute it’s not Baghdadi. Person #2 looks just like him: In addition, one of the important bits of evidence to prove #2 is indeed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is actually found in #1 Abu Mosa (ISIS Press Officer). There is absolutely no doubt that #1 is the (now dead) Islamic State Press Officer Abu Mosa. Abu Mosa was killed in August 2014. In 2012, during organization, Baghdadi would have a man with this level of importance to the Islamic State around him at the time this picture was taken. However, lets look at #5 – “Mouaz Moustafa”, because he is the current person that should be of interest to everyone in the 2016 presidential discussion. Moustafa is the connective tissue per se’. In the photograph, he’s also Senator McCain’s intermediary: Fast forward two intense years later and look where #5, Mouaz Moustafa shows up in 2014. And more specifically the two faces that show up with him: kinzinger-3-w-mcmullin Well lookie there. During a trip to Turkey in 2014 to discuss arming Syrian rebel groups, under the auspices of fighting ISIS, you see Representative Adam Kinzinger appear. Oh yeah, and who’s that other fellow circled in the meeting? ….why that’s our anti-Trump candidate Evan McMullin. Huh, fancy that. Spotting Evan McMullin conspicuously standing there in the picture made us want to go back to the CNN file footage from the time and see if he was actually visible in the report they filed from Turkey. Yup, he’s there alright. Watch and spot him in the background during quite a bit of the footage: Long before anyone heard about Evan McMullin running for President, there he is paling around with #NeverTrump Adam Kinzinger in Turkey chatting with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates (guise SETF) who are essentially the political arm of ISIS under a differing name. The declared purpose of the meeting was to discuss who and how to arm the entities within Syria. However, just like in 2012/2013 these same Brotherhood voices in 2014 are simply trying to present themselves as one thing, only to gain the goal of another. That’s ultimately the story behind the arms deals within The Benghazi Brief. That’s the lesson that should have been learned if the truth contained within the brief were ever to have larger public interest. Additionally, all that said – it’s connections like these that make other things, like the opposition to Donald Trump, make much more sense.

Obama Seizes Area Near Bundy Ranch In Massive Last Minute Land Grab

by Tyler Durden Dec 30, 2016 10:26 AM

Submitted by Alex Thomas via Intellihub.com,

With a stroke of the pen President Obama has unilaterally declared vast swaths of land in Utah and Nevada as two new national monuments, thus putting them under control of the federal government. Startlingly, the area in Nevada includes the site of the infamous Bundy Ranch standoff as well as land very close to the Bundy Ranch itself. With this move Obama has possibly triggered another armed standoff while also heading off any moves set to be made by incoming president Donald Trump. A “fact sheet” put out by the White House reads: Today, President Obama will designate two new national monuments, protecting sacred sites, spectacular scenery, and important natural and cultural resources in the desert landscapes of southeastern Utah and southern Nevada. The creation of the Bears Ears National Monument in Utah and the Gold Butte National Monument in Nevada follow years of robust public input from tribes, local elected officials, and diverse stakeholders, and draws from legislation introduced in Congress. In addition to protecting more land and water than any Administration in history, President Obama has taken unprecedented steps to elevate the voices of Native peoples in the management of our natural resources. Today’s actions build on this important work, and further demonstrate the President’s commitment to protecting sacred sites and our land, water and wildlife for future generations. Gold Butte National Monument Located in Clark County, Nevada just northeast of the outskirts of Las Vegas, the Gold Butte National Monument spans nearly 300,000 acres and will protect significant cultural resources, important geological formations, and vital plant and wildlife habitat. The monument will provide critical protections for important Native American historical sites, as well as areas that are currently used for traditional purposes by tribes. Notably, the area includes abundant rock art, archeological artifacts, and rare fossils, including recently discovered dinosaur tracks dating back hundreds of millions of years. In recent years these resources have faced increasing damage from threats such as deliberate destruction and vandalism, and today’s designation will help ensure that these cultural and archaeological treasures are better protected. The monument will serve as an important connection between already protected lands, including Lake Mead Recreation Area and the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument across the Arizona border, protecting key wildlife corridors for large mammals such as desert bighorn sheep and mountain lions, and vital habitat for the threatened Mojave desert tortoise. Additionally, the monument will protect important historic resources. Structures that detail western ranching heritage can still be found in the Gold Butte area, as well as an early twentieth-century abandoned mining town and sites associated with Spanish explorers from the late eighteenth century. Today’s action follows decades of local support from tribes, local stakeholders and conservationists, and draws from legislation that was first introduced in 2008. Right now it is extremely difficult to confirm exactly how much of the land in and around the Bundy Ranch is now a national monument but a map put out by the Las Vegas Review seems to line up directly with the Bundy grazing allotment. “Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument” Vocativ is reporting that multiple individuals involved with the original Bundy standoff have already made it clear that they plan to stand up to this latest federal tyranny. “Members of the self-styled militias that swarmed to the aid of Cliven Bundy outside of Las Vegas in 2014 — and who later joined the rancher’s sons to seize a federal wildlife refuge in rural Oregon — said they were readying for another showdown. Obama’s move on Wednesday to protect 300,000 acres of federal land around Gold Butte, close to the Bundy ranch, comes as two dozen people await trials for their roles in the Nevada and Oregon standoffs, which emboldened right-wing militants across America and became a powerful symbol of anti-government sentiment,” read the report. “Get your gear ready,” wrote Jon Ritzheimer, one of the men who used handguns and assault rifles to hole up in Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for 41 days last year. “Obama just designated the Bundy Ranch a national monument.” “Others with ties to patriot groups and militia movements online responded with a bit more force. “Locked and loaded ready to go,” wrote Chris Border, a member of the Cliven Bundy’s Army! Facebook group, which boasts more than 2,000 members. “Tired of this crap and time to do something.” One has to wonder what exactly are the reasons for this new land grab by President Obama in the last days of his presidency. It’s extremely hard to imagine that it is not at least partially connected to the Bundy’s and the standoffs in both Nevada and Oregon. More importantly, this area may actually include land that has documented precious metals throughout it as detailed in the video report below.

Van Jones Says Muslim Keith Ellison Is Future of the Democratic Party

By Tyler O'Neil January 1, 2017

On CNN, liberal activist Anthony Kapel "Van" Jones said that "the Clinton days are over" in the Democratic Party, and pointed to two emerging leaders as the future of a more progressive political party focused on identity politics. Naturally, he chose two racial minority members of Congress — and the extremely controversial first Muslim congressman. "You have to understand, I think that the Clinton days are over," Jones told CNN's Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday. "This idea that we're going to be this moderate party ... those days are over." Jones called for a new generation of Democrat leadership, touting California Attorney General Kamala Harris (an anti-free speech activist) and Representative Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress and a candidate for the Democratic National Committee chairmanship. "I think that Keith Ellison is very important because he is somebody who represents the progressive wing of the party," Jones declared. "On thing that happened, when Hillary Clinton had a chance to make a VP pick, she didn't pick someone from the progressive wing, which made it much harder to heal the wounds with the [Bernie] Sanders and Elizabeth Warren wing. Keith Ellison represents that wing very, very well." Keith Ellison also represents a long-term threat to the Democratic Party's success as well. Ellison has ties to the Nation of Islam (which he later denounced), has received contributions from members of the radical front group the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), attacked Vice President Dick Cheney's actions as "the very definition of totalitarianism, authoritarianism and dictatorship," and compared the Bush administration's reaction to the September 11 attacks to Hitler's use of the Reichstag fire. In 2009, Ellison met with Mohammed al-Hanooti, whom FBI documents identify as a top U.S. fundraiser for the terror organization Hamas. They met at a campaign event for Virginia House of Delegates candidate Esam Omeish, who had previously called for Palestinians to follow "the jihad way" against Israel. DNC Chair Candidate Rep. Keith Ellison Met with Hamas Fundraiser Mohammed al-Hanooti Last month, the Anti-Defamation League — no conservative organization — declared Ellison "disqualified" from becoming DNC chairman based on remarks the congressman made about Israel in a 2010 speech. The group argued that Ellison's remarks about Israel suggested anti-Semitism, an unfortunate trend among Muslims worldwide, and one in keeping with Ellison's old praise for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, whom the congressman himself later denounced as anti-Semitic.

SOUTHCOM Raises Alarms on Sunni Extremists Infiltrating U.S. Southern Border

On August 21st the United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) confirmed what the Menges Hemispheric Security Project has been warning about for a long time: the susceptibility of our Southern border to the infiltration of Middle East Terrorism. Most recently we warned that ISIS has the potential to operate in Latin America. Reporting on cooperation between Iran or Iran’s proxy groups like Hezbollah and countries in Latin America such as Venezuela as well as drug cartels has been extensive. However, this time SOUTHCOM (which is responsible for all military activities in South and Central America) has explicitly talked about the infiltration of Sunni extremists from the Middle East, from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region and from East Africa broaching our southern border. These infiltrations, which are carried out with the help of professional smugglers trained in smuggling illegal immigrants from Latin America, represent a major problem given the threat of the Islamic State. What is more interesting is that neither the media nor even the Donald Trump campaign raised public concern over this report. It is particularly worrisome given the fact that Southern Command reported the infiltration of 30,000 individuals from the Middle East, which is the equivalent of 10% of the total illegal smuggling coming from the southern border. It is obvious that the problem of our southern border remains a very serious issue that requires a solution as soon as possible. The security of our borders should be resolved before any other issue is resolved, whether the next president is Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. But for this to happen it is also imperative to look at the Western Hemisphere and Latin America not only in economic terms but also as a region that poses serious security challenges. We have extensively covered all these challenges but with the rise of ISIS it is important to look into why the region is a fertile area for ISIS. First, the proximity of Latin America to the United States makes us vulnerable and provides easy access to those wishing to cross over our rather porous southern border. Secondly, the northern states of Mexico as well as Central America constitute anarchical areas, territories without effective government. Ungoverned territories are fertile ground for terrorist activities. Third, corruption prevails. It is extremely easy to bribe judges, police, governors, and public officials as drug cartels have widely proved. By the same token, cooperation between ISIS and drug cartels should not be ruled out. After all, such cooperation has taken place between cartels and the Shiite Hezbollah. Drug cartels provide logistics and know the territory extremely well. By the same token, there have been countries in the region that sold passports in exchange for money like Venezuela, whose embassy in Baghdad sold passports to whomever paid for them. Given the intense activity of ISIS and Sunni extremists in Iraq, it should not be surprising that some of these passports were sold to ISIS members or individuals associated to ISIS. Likewise, small Caribbean countries associated directly or indirectly with Venezuela and the ALBA coalition have been involved in the selling of passports raising eyebrows about the possibility that ISIS may have been one of the beneficiaries of such transactions. It is also worthwhile to point out that Tareq Al Assami, currently the governor of the Venezuelan state of Aragua and a former Minister of interior was in charge of providing visas and passports. He is known for his connections with Iran and Hezbollah and his father was a former Secretary of the Iraqi Baath party in Venezuela. Former members of Sadam Hussein’s Baath party now constitute an important presence in the ranks of ISIS. By the same token it should not be ruled out that with the recent peace accord agreed upon by the government of Colombia and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) there could be a number of guerillas that refuse to accept the binding power of the agreements. If those dissidents from the FARC join forces with ISIS as they have done in the past with Hezbollah, it could have disastrous consequences for the security of the region. Finally, it is important to point out that Latin American countries are not paying due attention to terrorism and less to Islamic terrorism as we have already pointed out. For example, Brazil has denied that there is any terrorist activity in Brazil despite the fact that Hezbollah has major cells operating in the country and even some Al Qaeda operatives. They have been the least cooperative country in tracking activities in the tri-border area. Brazil does not consider Hezbollah, Hamas, or even the familiar Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) as terrorist entities. This hopefully will change with the new interim government in Brazil or if a new government is elected as a result of Dilma Rousseff’s impeachment. Therefore, the next president of the United States will need to take this issue very seriously. Failing to do so could place American lives at risk.

Algemeiner Editor-in-Chief: ‘Obama Has Given Incredible Boost to March of Antisemitism’ by Abstaining From Vote on Anti-Israel UN Resolution

avatar by Ruthie Blum January 1, 2017 1:40 pm 8

US President Barack Obama “has given an incredible boost to the march of antisemitism,” the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said in an interview on Friday. Discussing the latest moves by the lame-duck administration in Washington to put pressure on Jerusalem — abstaining in the UN Security Council vote on anti-settlements Resolution 2334, and Secretary of State John Kerry’s subsequent harsh address, warning that Israel cannot remain both a democracy and a Jewish state — Dovid Efune told Rush Limbaugh Show guest host Buck Sexton that such behavior encourages and invigorates the deligitimization and demonization of Israel, both defined as antisemitic by the US State Department. It is for this reason, said Efune, that Kerry caused such a stir. “His speech was essentially a glorified attempt to justify the vote at the UN last Friday, which the US — in an unprecedented move — abstained from, angering the Israelis, betraying the Israelis. And I can tell you from where I stand: The mainstream Jewish community in this country is seething, outraged, furious across the board with this stab in the back and, as some have even defined it, a stab in the front,” Efune said. Listen to the full interview below (Efune’s remarks begin at 37:30):

"In Obama's world view we have moved closer to peace, but during his term we have just gotten further from it," she said. Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev has made public her pleasure that US President Barack Obama is soon leaving office. In an interview with Army Radio on Sunday, Regev said "thank God that Obama is finishing his term." "In Obama's world view we have moved closer to peace, but during his term we have just gotten further from it," she said, adding that "there have been more and more terror attacks in Berlin, Orlando and yesterday in Turkey, what does any of this have to do with the [Israeli] settlements?" "It just cannot be the case that this is the way the President of the United States, who thank God is finishing his term, treats the State of Israel, as the weak link in the Middle East," she stated. Regev's comments came more than a week after Obama administration provoked the Israeli government's fury by failing to block the passage of an anti-settlement resolution in the UN Security Council. In the time that has passed since the UN Security Council vote on December 23, and the US abstention, the country has expressed every emotion from shock, mostly in the form of dismay and plain outrage, with comment and condemnation from ministers, government officials and of course from the Israeli public. Immediately after the resolution passed, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu directed his rage primarily at Obama, who days before was urged to exercise his country's ability to exercise a veto. "Yesterday, in stark contrast to this commitment [to not dictate terms of a permanent settlement to Israel through the UN], the Obama administration took a shameful anti-Israel step at the UN." Netanyahu also expressed concern that the resolution will put a damper on any possible development in the peace process. "The decision not only does not bring peace closer, but it makes it more distant," he said. Netanyahu and Obama have had a particularly acrimonious relationship since they both took office in 2009. Over the weekend the New York Post reported that US President-elect Donald Trump's team has been "aggressively" courting Netanyahu to attend the incoming president's January 20 inauguration.

Throwing Israel to the UN's wolves

Palestinian Islamic Jihad is, as its name suggests, an organization committed to jihad -- against Israel most urgently, though not exclusively. So when the U.N. Security Council last Friday passed a resolution condemning Israel, PIJ spokesman Dawood Shihab was pleased. He called it a "victory." He wasn't wrong. Nor was Fawzy Barhoum, a spokesman for Hamas, another organization openly committed to Israel's extermination, as well as to "a jihadi revolution" that will be a "prelude to the establishment of the future Islamic caliphate." He called the resolution an "important evolution in international positions" and expressed Hamas' "appreciation." Most deserving of their gratitude is U.S. President Barack Obama, who decided to spend his last days in office playing golf in Hawaii and throwing America's most reliable ally to the wolves at the U.N., an organization that exhibits passivity when it comes to the ongoing carnage in Syria, the genocide of Christians, Yazidis and other minorities in the broader Middle East, the conflict in Yemen, failing states -- the list goes on and on. The U.N. does, however, expend considerable energy railing against the world's only Jewish state, a tiny democratic nation on the front lines of the war against radical Islam, a war the West is fighting in only the most desultory fashion. This year alone, the U.N. General Assembly passed 20 resolutions censuring Israel, compared to one against Iran and none against Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Venezuela or China. With assistance from Obama, who instructed his ambassador not to veto Resolution 2334, the Security Council has now piled on as well. For decades, Democrats and Republicans have agreed that it would be "unwise" to give the Security Council the responsibility "to attempt to resolve the core issues that divide Israelis and Palestinians." Those words were spoken by Susan Rice, Obama's first ambassador to the U.N., when, following his instructions in 2011, she blocked a similar resolution. But back then Obama still had one more presidential election to win so antagonizing Israel's supporters may have seemed ill-advised. Perhaps that's unfair. Perhaps Obama sincerely believes that a two-state solution can be achieved if only Israel would withdraw from the "occupied territories." If so, he's ignoring both history and experience. Arab, Muslim and Palestinian leaders first rejected a two-state solution back in 1948 -- almost a generation before Israelis took possession of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Those lands fell to Israel as a consequence of the 1967 war, one of several attempts by Israel's neighbors to drive the despised Jews into the sea. It was from Jordan and Egypt respectively that Israel took those territories. Palestinians had never governed them. But that led to a bright idea: Why not trade land for peace with the Palestinians? With President Bill Clinton serving as honest broker, specific offers were put on the table in 2000 and then again in 2001. Another offer was proffered in 2008. Palestinians leaders turned them down. They made no counteroffers. In 2005, an experiment was conducted: Israelis withdrew from one of the occupied territories. Within two years, Hamas was firmly in charge of Gaza, from which it began launching missiles at Israeli villages. Israelis learned a lesson. The "international community" did not. On the contrary, Obama and the U.N. Security Council have just told Israel that they envision a land-for-peace deal that omits the peace part. Meanwhile, on the West Bank, it is only thanks to Israel's military and intelligence presence ("occupation") that Fatah maintains its hold on power. Mahmoud Abbas, who leads both Fatah and the Palestinian Authority, is no wild-eyed jihadi. But, he, too, refuses to acknowledge the right of Jews to self-determination in any part of their ancient homeland. Resolution 2334 demands nothing of Palestinians. Its definition of "occupied territory" is extreme, including even the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. Conquered in 1949 by Jordan's Arab Legion, it was then "cleansed" of Jews. Synagogues and cemeteries were destroyed. Jewish holy places were desecrated. The U.N., of course, did nothing. Look at the map: Across North Africa and the Middle East, from Morocco to Pakistan, there is only one state not ruled by Muslims, only one in which minorities -- ethnic, religious, sexual -- are guaranteed basic human rights. The dream of PIJ, Hamas, the Islamic State, the Islamic Republic of Iran and other Islamic revolutionaries is to destroy that exceptional state, to incorporate it into a new empire -- an empire that, over time, is to expand well beyond the region. Obama has now encouraged that dream. That will be his legacy. And he still has a few weeks left to do more damage. I wouldn't put it past him. The day before the U.N. vote, President-elect Donald Trump stated what Obama once claimed to believe, that "peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians will only come through direct negotiations between the parties, and not through the imposition of terms by the United Nations." After the vote, he added: "As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20." His nominee for ambassador, David Friedman, has proposed moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. That would be an appropriate response to this latest provocation. Among the additional measures Trump will consider: dramatically reducing American funding for the U.N. Like other transnational progressives, Obama regards the U.N. as a proto-global government. Trump, an anti-globalist, does not. It will be useful for him to emphasize that as long as he is in the White House, America's sovereignty will not be surrendered to transnational organizations, America's tax dollars will not be squandered on transnational organizations, America's enemies will not be rewarded, and America's allies will be abused no longer. Clifford D. May is president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and a columnist for The Washington Times.

The Red Dawn Invasion’s Operational Details-The Dots Are All Connecting

By Dave Hodges

In yesterday’s related article, I established the fact that the entire West coast is under threat to leaving the United States. Washington and Oregon would go to Canada and California would become its own country under the control of the United Nations with the assistance of George Soros, the Mexican government, the Obama administration, the Mexican drug cartels, the Chinese government and the Bank of China. I also reported on the fake gas shortage in Mexico which is causing Mexico to pivot towards China. Mexico’s cooperation with China is essential to any Red Dawn invasion because Mexico would become one of the pathway into the United States. Russia has allowed this CALEXIT movement to establish an embassy in Russia. Trump should tell Putin that is an act of war. Further, I revealed yesterday that our most trusted ally, Canada, is allowing Chinese warships to dock in Canadian ports. America could, very soon, be left standing alone. California reminds me of America at the time of the Revolutionary War in which certain European nations assisted in our revolution against Great Britain. The treasonous Gov. Jerry Brown, is delusional enough to believe that he is the modern day version of George Washington. This article will review and further reveal some of the expected operational details associated with a multinational invasion of the Western United States which would be led by China. America Is Standing Alone, Except for Britain Leaders from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and Russia declared their intention to establish a means of continuous dialogue “to discuss and synchronize positions on international issues” CELAC includes thirty-three countries in the Americas, but the United States and Canada are excluded. This is the breeding ground of a “Red Dawn Scenario. Embedded Chinese Soldiers in West Coast Ports Since 1997, Chinese officials have bribed and bought off senior American government officials, particularly in the Clinton administration. Part of the bribes included the selling of Long Beach port to the Chinese along with the loss of nearly 18,000 American jobs. Multiple military sources around the country have quietly warned about the growing menace posed by the buildup of Chinese Communist forces in many of our California ports now controlled by the Chinese. The Bundy Affair Was Not Only About Uranium Sales to Russia by Hillary The Bundy/BLM affair was also symbolic of this buildup. The solar energy deals that were put into place by Senator Harry Reid were done in conjunction with Chinese energy companies run by the Chinese military. All personnel manning these planned plants would be affiliated with the Chinese military. This includes the inland ports (e.g. Kansas City) which are controlled by the Chinese courtesy of the treasonous trade agreement we call NAFTA. As former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave tacit approval and participated in these actions which had their origins prior to her tenure as Secretary of State. The Bundy Ranch and Other BLM Land Seizures Are Being Done On Behalf of the Chinese The Bundy Ranch confrontation, along with many other unreported BLM land grabs on behalf of the Chinese are being carried out in preparation for a total resource hand off to the Chinese. My military sources and researcher, Vicky Davis tell me that a series of international “inland ports” are being created in conjunction with known mineral rich areas and control of these areas will be handed off to the Chinese. Further, the Chinese military will be stationed around these inland ports to ensure safety and security of the Chinese investment and its mining and geological personnel. The Chinese are doing this under the guise of creating solar energy, which they are. However, their energy companies are owned by the Chinese military. This will be the foothold of their invasion force. Further, solar zones are near planned international corridor highways (e.g. Canamex and NAFTA Super Highways) for easy transport of these soon-to-be mined mineral resources for shipping back to China. When the three pronged attack occurs, the American economy will be in chaos and the Chinese will be in the midst of acquiring vast mineral resources for which they have prepositioned their covert military assets in this country. Chinese troops will soon be a common occurrence on American soil. This will constitute only the beginning of the short-range take over the Chinese have planned for America. These Solar Energy Zones are appearing in multiple locations in such places as Southwestern Arizona, Barstow, CA. and Victorville, CA., and now I am receiving on the ground reports from Colorado and Utah as well. These designated Solar Energy Zones have very similar variables in common. The following chart indicates that the debt compensation will consist of complete control of the solar industry and will be expanded to other energy sources (e.g. hydroelectric and nuclear power). This practice has been happening in Indian reservations as well. In addition to Paul Preston’s revelations about CALEXIT, he has stated on a prio interview on The Common Sense Show that the inland ports of Stockton and Sacremento California are loaded with Chinese soldiers. Take a look at the following chart, do you think this is a coincidence or a conspiracy?

Creation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone” Creation of Agenda 21 “Solar Energy Zone”

Located near a major energy source (Hoover Dam) Located near a major energy source (Palo Verde Nuclear Plant)

Located near a major military base (Nellis AFB) Located near a major military base ancillary facilities (Luke AFB)

Please note that any invasion of America’s Southwest underbelly would have to negate American aircover. Please note that these solar energy foarms located adjacent or near American domestic airbases which could easily be negated. And these planned facilities are always located near known mineral rich resources buried underground and waiting to be mined. And this strategy is not limited to these Chinese Solar Energy Zones. The Farah article also makes mention of a series of Chinese incursions into the American energy domain as reported by the Wall Street Journal on March 6, 2012. The state-by-state list of the $17 billion in oil and natural gas equity interests CNOOC and Sinopec have acquired in the United States since 2010. “Colorado: CNOOC gained a one-third stake in 800,000 acres in northeast Colorado and southwest Wyoming in a $1.27-billion pact with Chesapeake Energy Corporation. Louisiana: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 265,000 acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale after a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy. Michigan: Sinopec gained a one-third interest in 350,000 acres in a larger $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy. Ohio: Sinopec acquired a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 235,000 Utica Shale acres in a larger $2.5-billion deal. Oklahoma: Sinopec has a one-third interest in 215,000 acres in a broader $2.5-billion deal with Devon Energy. Texas: CNOOC acquired a one-third interest in Chesapeake Energy’s 600,000 acres in the Eagle Ford Shale in a $2.16-billion deal. Wyoming: CNOOC has a one-third stake in northeast Colorado and southeast Wyoming after a $1.27-billion pact with Chesapeake Energy. Sinopec gained a one-third interest in Devon Energy’s 320,000 acres as part of a larger $2.5-billion deal”. Only when a nation has a traitor, like Obama and George W. Bush, as a President, could this be allowed to happen. Chinese Have International Help The Fifth Column The Fifth Column, designed to sabotage critical infrastructure and carry out key assassinations of resistance figures in the media as well as uncooperative politicians, was mostly put into place last summer during the “immigration crisis” which was used as a cover to embed these forces inside of the U.S. Not Gangsters but Terrorists Armed with WMD’s There is incontrovertible evidence that criminal drug cartels, like Los Zetas, have not only used MS-13 gangsters as hit men and child sex traffickers, but so has the Juarez Cartel and the Barrio Azteca to enforce their will, but Los Zetas have also conducted training in parts of Central and South America, and have even allowed MS-13 gangsters to lead in operations as when “El Comandante Kilo” operated in San Fernando on behalf of Los Zetas. This training consists of two parts, military training and assassination (i.e. future Red List applications). In plain corporate language, the Mexican drug cartels are outsourcing paramilitary activities such as assassinations and terrorism. Paul Williams, a former FBI Consultant, wrote a book shortly after 9/11 and stated that reliable reports had reached United States officials that al Qaeda operatives were able to get at least two nuclear suitcase bombs into the United States. Williams went on to state that bin Laden had previously used his vast wealth, derived from control of Afghanistan’s poppy trade, to pay off high ranking MS-13 leaders. Williams further asserted that bin Laden paid as much as $50,ooo to smuggle sleeper agents into the United states. Williams is not alone in this belief as the author of Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America, Brigitte Gabriel, stated that there are terrorists coming through our southern border due to the cooperation and joint efforts of MS-13 and Hezbollah and they are intent on introducing a Hiroshima event on American soil! A very disturbing and recent report from the International Assessment and Strategy Center stated that MS-13 is moving away from handguns to the use of AK-47’s, along with grenades, rocket propelled grenade launchers, and light anti-tank weapons! The same think tank also reported that the MS-13 gang recently acquired multiple shoulder-fired SA-7 anti-aircraft missile launchers obtained from an open arms market in El Salvador from left over former civil war stockpiles. MS-13 is equipping its forces with these weapons as they can easily knockout helicopters and airplanes from the skies and these weapons can be obtained for a mere $15,000. This is chump change for a gang associated with the drug cartels. The same report went on to state that MS-13 has begun to smuggle drugs, weapons and human beings for the Zetas. MS-13 members are being trained at Zetas camps outside San Salvador and the training includes high level military training. Think TET offensive from the Viet Nam War. MS-13 is well-armed enough to take over cities by knocking out the headquarters of local police forces in a simultaneous series of attacks in which WMD’s are introduced on American soil. If you think this is far-fetched, please keep reading. Add to this that FBI Director Comey stated, last July 4th, that ISIS had cells in all 50 states and we continue to import unscreened immigrants from the Middle East under the UN’s Refugee/Rsettlement Program. America is in grave danger. Obama and Clinton began to actively ignore and, by neglect, gave approval to the following: Back in 2010, an internal memo was leaked from the Tucson Police Department which stated that Islamic terrorist groups are commencing operations in Mexico and forming alarming ties with the country’s brutal drug cartels. In turn, the drug cartels are now associated with Hezbollah. The memo also references a large weapons stockpile in Mexico as evidenced by the 2010 Tijuana arrest of Hezbollah militant Jameel Nasr, who was given the job of establishing a well-armed Hezbollah network in Mexico and South America. Nasr was apparently bringing this terror network north when he was captured. The memo also discussed the April 2009 arrest of Jamal Yousef in New York, which exposed a huge cache of assault rifles, hand grenades, explosives and anti-tank munitions. According to the report, the weapons were stored in Mexico, but only after being smuggled from Iraq by members of Hezbollah. The preceding references contained in the Tucson Police memo just answered that question. Further, as I reported last summer, the Border Patrol was not allowed to detain MS-13 gangsters despite how easy they are to identify because of their tattoos. This might be the best funded and supplied Fifth Column force in history. Two years ago, I reported, from two Border Patrol sources that these 5th column forces, now wreaking havoc in Minnesota, were given permission to enter in groups of 8-12 after being detained. The Chinese Will Have Help from Russia and Her Allies in Central and South America While we slept, Obama alienated all of our allies in Latin America. Former Secretary of State Clinton took actions that led to the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. The President of Bolivia’s plane was forced to land by American jets, because they thought Ed Snowden was on board (please note: This was an act of war). And of course, we know the fate of Hugo Chavez stemming from his defiance to this administration’s imperialism and his “El Diablo” comments directed at several American leaders, most notably, George Bush. The 33 Central and South American nation organization known as CELAC are combining forces and will form the vanguard of an attacking Army moving north and entering the United States through Mexico. Nicaragua According to a March 2014 report by the Strategic Culture Foundation, a progressive, pro-Russian think tank, Nicaragua’s quoted former Sandista leader, Daniel Ortega, who reinstalled himself in 2007 as the Nicaraguan leader stated that “We are very grateful and very much appreciate the Russian people’s support of our country.” Ortega has accepted the arrival of two Russian strategic bombers and added that more will be on the way as Russia announced that Nicaragua has announced that it will accept routine Russian patrols in both its Caribbean and Pacific ports as well as participating in the joint training of military personnel. Russia and Nicaragua have moved in the direction of a strategic economic and military relationship. In October 2013, for example, Nicaragua and Russia signed a memorandum of international security cooperation. Russia’s Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev noted during his visit to Nicaragua that “Nicaragua is an important partner and friend of Russia in Latin America,” pointing to the coincidence of views of the two countries’ authorities on many issues.” Argentina Argentinean President, Cristina Fernández is determined to develop close economic relations with Russia as the left-wing liberal Argentinean leader has invited Russia to invest in fuel projects in an obvious attack upon the Petrodollar. Fernandez also cut a deal with Putin which previously supported Russia’s grab of Crimea in exchange for Russia’s support of Argentina’s quest to annex the Falkland Islands. If this is followed through with, this would be a direct act of war. Fernandez’s statement is most certainly a direct Russian slap in the face of our closest ally, England, and should be viewed as an attack upon NATO. Further, Cristina Fernández, added that the Crimean referendum was “one of the famous referendums of self-determination.” Equador, Venezuela and Bolivia Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa praised Russia as a “great nation”, while visiting Moscow in October of 2013. Putin was indeed praise-worthy because he promised to invest $1.5 billion into new domestic energy projects in Ecuador. Correa also stated that his country was planning on buying Russian military equipment. Russia has signed several billion dollars of contracts with Venezuela and supplies Bolivia, among other countries from the region with military weapons. The military package includes attack aircraft and helicopters. Brazil Brazilian Defense Minister Celso Amorim, stated that “More than buying military equipment, what we are seeking with Russia is a strategic partnership based on the joint development of technology.” Amorim’s statement is consistent with the fact that Brazil, South America’s most populous nation, has announced that it is planning to purchase short-to-medium-range surface-to-air Pantsir S1 missile batteries and Igla-S shoulder-held missiles from Russia. Previously, Brazil has purchased 12 Mi-35 attack helicopters. Russia and Brazil have also signed an agreement for Brazil to acquire 36 attack aircraft. Amorim said Russia and Brazil would also look at working together on space technology and on defense against cyber attacks, an area that has become a Brazilian priority since disclosures that the NSA has spied on Brazilians, their president and the country’s largest oil company. If this means what I believe it means, with regard to the development of space technology, we are speaking about the possible intention of the Russian militarizing of near Earth orbit with space based weapons (killer satelllites?). Brazil is also one of the BRIC nations who is actively participating with Russia in the demise of the Petrodollar by purchasing oil for gold instead of the time-honored practice of the Petrodollar. El Salvador and All of Latin America El Salvadorian President, Sanchez Ceren, has signed an agreement with Putin entitled “Federal Law On Ratification of the Agreement on the Foundations of Relations” which pledges economic and military cooperation with Russia. Ceren, is a self-declared Marxist-Leninist and is considered to be very-anti American. Turning out the Lights on the Western United States The Genesis of This Plot Grid EX II allowed Russians and Chinese military to participate in this simulated take down of the grid. The genesis of this plot did not begin with what happened in the past two weeks in Tennessee. America’s vulnerability began with good-old fashioned treason and the source of that treason lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In November of 2013, as GRID EX II practiced a “grid down” scenario, I wrote these words: “Obama is such a traitor that he previously allowed the Russians and the Chinese, our enemies who have threatened to nuke America, to participate in Grid Ex II. In other words, we gave our enemies the keys to our house and car by showing them how our infrastructure is organized.” Obama has purposely compromised the national security of the United States by showing the Russians and the Chinese how to take down our grid. I said this in 2013, and I am repeating this today. I firmly believe our grid will be taken down. It will be replaced with Chinese solar energy farms. Conclusion The dots are all connecting. wn There is only one quesstion to be answered at this point: Can Trump do anything about this? If I were Trump, regardless of the prospects for victory, I would do two things: (1) Send the US military into California and arrest Gov. Brown and wage war on the cartels; and, (2) nationalize all Communist Chinese business interests. Are you prepared. Do not stop prepping, your life could depend on it. THIS IS NOT NECESSARILY OUR FATE- OUR BEST WEAPON IS NOT OUR MISSILES. OUR BEST WEAPON IS OUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST AND STAYING IN PRAYER ON THESE CRITICAL ISSUES GOD IS WAITING TO HELP US. WE JUST NEED TO HUMBLY ASK HIM TO DO SO

China's aircraft carrier prowling Pacific, sending a message

By Brad Lendon, CNN Updated 12:18 PM ET, Tue December 27, 2016

(CNN) China's lone aircraft carrier is prowling the Pacific as the country seeks to assert its military might and build up its naval warfare capabilities. The Liaoning carrier's J-15 fighter jets practiced air confrontations and air refueling in the Yellow Sea late last week before the ship and its flotilla of escorting frigates and destroyers headed into the open Pacific beyond Taiwan and Okinawa. On Monday it headed to the South China Sea -- the site of regional tensions caused by China building fortifications on disputed islands. It's a move that hasn't gone unnoticed by China's Asian neighbors. Taiwan sounded a note of alarm, with its defense minister emphasizing the need for vigilance. Chinese J-15 fighter jets wait on the deck of the Liaoning aircraft carrier during military drills in December. "The threat of our enemy is growing day by day. We should always be maintaining our combat alertness," said Taiwan Defense Minister Feng Shih-Kuan. Japan's Defense Ministry, meanwhile, said it's the first time it could confirm the Liaoning, which China bought from Ukraine in 1998, then rebuilt and commissioned in 2012 as a training vessel, had gone into the open Pacific. "We are taking notice of this event, which indicates China is expanding its ability to engage in maritime warfare," Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said. And it looks like that's exactly the point China's trying to make clear. A warning for Eastern Pacific China's state-run Global Times media agency published an editorial on Christmas Day, timed to coincide with the aircraft carrier Liaoning's maneuvers. The piece called on China to build up its fleet of aircraft carriers, make them combat ready, sail them to Eastern Pacific and look to set up naval supply bases in South America. The Global Times also said the drill is a sign the Liaoning's combat capability has been enhanced and its areas of operation expanded, and could soon include the Eastern Pacific, including off the US West Coast. "When China's aircraft carrier fleet appears in offshore areas of the US one day, it will trigger intense thinking about maritime rules. "If the fleet is able to enter areas where the US has core interests, the situation when the US unilaterally imposes pressure on China will change," the Global Times said. The editorial called on China to speed up construction of homemade aircraft carriers "so as to activate their combat." China is believed to have one new carrier near completion and another about to start construction, said Carl Schuster, a professor at Hawaii Pacific University and former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center. But China's ability to pose a long-range threat with aircraft carriers is a long way off, he said. A difficult buildup for China "China has no corps of experienced naval aviators and aircraft carrier crewmen on which to build their carrier force," Schuster said in an email to CNN. "They are having to build it from scratch ... a difficult challenge for a force reliant on 2-year conscripts for most of its personnel." Schuster said China is planning for a fleet of four carriers by 2027-2029. Even with the additional carriers, its carrier fleet will only be less than half the size of that of the US Navy, which boasts 10 carriers in service, another near commissioning and another under construction. For now, though, the Global Times is pushing China to project power beyond the "first string" of islands around the country; an arc stretching from north of the Paracel Islands group in the South China Sea, northeastward to encompass Taiwan, west of Okinawa and north into the East China Sea between the Koreas and China. "As China's only aircraft carrier fleet now, it should have the ability and courage to sail farther," it said, "...to the waters where Chinese ... fleets have never been." And that would encompass waters of the Eastern Pacific. CNN's Junko Ogura and Jane Zhang contributed to this report.

Geoengineering Winter Weather Warfare Assault Continues

December 26, 2016 Dane Wigington geoengineeringwatch.org

The latest completely engineered winter weather assault to be launched on US populations is the theatrically named "Winter Storm Europa" How severe does the rapidly worsening weather whiplash have to get before populations face the fact that ongoing global climate engineering/weather warfare programs are decimating and derailing Earth's climate and life support systems? How extreme, anomalous, and unnatural was the divide between extreme cold and record heat in the US on Sunday? The map below shows a shocking scenario. Skies all over the globe are being sprayed with highly toxic aerosols that are a core component of the climate intervention operations (these are NOT condensation trails). In the forecast model below, warm flows of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico are chemically ice nucleated by the geoengineers. This process creates the short term chemical cool-downs that have now become the norm. The bullseye of impact from "Winter Storm Europa" was yet again directed toward the Dakotas. Ice storms are now almost always seen in the transition zones between warm flows of moisture (used as fuel for the engineered winter weather events) and the core of the chemically ice nucleated zones. The Dakota Water Protectors have been consistently and severely impacted by extreme "winter weather". This has occurred even after the US experienced its warmest autumn ever recorded. Is this also just a coincidence? The video animation below has captured the chemical ice nucleation process being carried out by the climate engineers. Warm (far above freezing) flows of moisture can clearly be seen "flashing out" to snow for no apparent reason (meteorologically speaking). The power structure paid disinformation sources like "The Weather Channel" have now called this process "changing over to snow". Official sources of weather forecasting and information are simply covering the tracks of the climate engineers as they have been paid to do. The radar loop shown below is undeniable proof of "chemical ice nucleation for weather modification". Chemical ice nucleation of the warm flow of moisture from the south is clearly visible in the radar animation above. A close examination also reveals radio frequency transmission manipulation with an epicenter located in Rapid City. Why don't we have whistleblowers sounding the alarm on the climate engineering insanity? The illegal federal gag order on all National Weather Service and all National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration employees is certainly a major factor. In the map below, major ice storm impacts (mentioned earlier) are seen in the transition zone where the warm flow of moisture from the south is being chemically nucleated. As mentioned earlier, disinformation sources (like The Weather Channel) are doing their best to convince populations that is is now normal to have a "warm side" and a "cold side" to a "winter storm". The storm severity map below clearly shows the epicenter of the extreme weather from "WInter Storm Europa" is directly on top of the Dakota Water Protector protest zone. The red zones in the map above reveal the most severe impact zones of "Winter Storm Europa". What is worth noting in the next map (shown below) are the extremely warm temperatures that exist in the flows of moisture that continue to feed "Winter Storm Europa". As this flow of moisture migrates to the North East, temperatures of over 60 degrees are visible only a short distance from the chemically cooled ice nucleation zones. We now almost never hear the power structure paid "weather forecasters" referring to snow levels based on elevations. Now, thanks to climate engineering, you are either on the warm side of the storm or the cold side of the storm. Elevation is now generally no longer a factor. Scenarios like the one shown in the map above are historically unprecedented. Now such scenarios are considered the norm. The completely out of control climate engineering cabal continues to try and cover up the rapidly worsening planetary meltdown with more and more "engineered winter" short term toxic cool-downs. The paradox is this, every climate intervention that the climate engineers carry out makes the overall warming of the planet worse, not better. The Geoengineers are destroying the ozone layer, disrupting the hydrological cycle, fueling forest fires, and contaminating the entire planet in the process. 2016 will be the third record shattering hot year in a row and this record will occur in spite of the fact that "official" agencies are UNDERREPORTING high temperatures, not exaggerating them. The meltdown of the polar region is of especially grave concern. The bright red zones at the top of this Temperature Anomaly map clearly reveals the ongoing Arctic meltdown. Massive formerly frozen methane deposits are now rapidly thawing and releasing. These methane releases may soon determine our collective fate, climate intervention programs are making the methane releases worse overall, not better. We must all work together in the most critical effort to expose and halt the climate engineering insanity. Those that have chosen to deny or hide from reality must realize that their denial will not stop what is coming. Join the fight to expose and halt the climate engineering planetary omnicide, help us in the battle to sound the alarm.

SF: Are those in power looking to further ignite tensions with Russia? This may just be bitterness on the part of the Obama administration. However it could also be the beginning of the war that will mask the real catastrophe, meaning the omnicidal devastation that ongoing geoengineering is inflicting on us and our planet. As I’m sure you know — The United States on Thursday expelled 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Russian compounds in New York and Maryland in response to a campaign of harassment by Russia against American diplomats in Moscow, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday. The U.S. official … told Reuters the Russian diplomats would be given 72 hours to leave the United States. Access to the two compounds will be denied to all Russian officials as of noon on Friday… [Reuters] Russia Warns Of "Proportional Response" To Obama's "Paranoia" / Zero Hedge / Dec 29, 2016 Having already made it clear that any sanctions would be met with retaliation, IFX reports that Russian Commissioner Foreign Ministry on human rights, democracy and the rule of law, Konstantin Dolgov exclaimed that "any anti-Russian sanctions are futile and counter-productive." … Russia has no alternative than to make a proportional response, adding in a call with reporters that Moscow "doubted the effectiveness of the measures as the current U.S. presidential administration was stepping down in three weeks" while Duma Foreign Affairs head Slutsky slammed U.S. sanctions as "signs of real paranoia." … the lies about the "Russian hackers", which continues to flow into the United States from the very top. … It only remains to add that if Washington really takes new hostile steps, it will get the answer.

Earthquake swarm rattles Nevada – 3 large quakes (M5.7, M5.7, M5.3) hit near Nevada-California state line

By Strange Sounds - Dec 28, 2016

A series of at least 27 earthquakes was reported on December 28, 2016, near the Nevada-California state line. The first temblor occurred at 12:22 a.m. Pacific time with a magnitude of 5.7 near Hawthorne, Nev. At least seven quakes with magnitudes between 3 and 5.7 were reported shortly after. Now there are fears a magnitude 7 or above “Big One” could strike the earthquake prone region. Light shaking was felt as far away as South Lake Tahoe, Fresno, Visalia and Merced. The California Office of Emergency Services was assessing, but no serious injuries or damages were immediately reported. The 5.7 quake’s epicenter was 56 miles from Gardnerville Ranchos, Nev., 69 miles from South Lake Tahoe, Calif., 70 miles from Carson City, Nev., and 84 miles from Fernley, Nev. Terrified locals took to Twitter after the quakes hit: Tony Lewis wrote: “3 major #earthquake’s in Nevada possible precursors for something big.” Ryan Vance wrote: ”Looks like it was a (preliminary) 5.8 quake on the CA/Nevada border. Hope the damage is minimal but it felt pretty big here in SF..” Peppy Heppy wrote “Just felt a fairly large earthquake in South Lake Tahoe! #earthquake.” One user wrote: “These earthquakes have California people all scared to go to sleep. We all in our bed scared to s***!” Another wrote: “I’m scared as hell right now in California #earthquake.” Now there are fears a magnitude 7 or above “Big One” could strike the earthquake prone region.

Red Alert at Bogoslof Volcano, 6 explosions at Colima volcano and enhanced volcanic activity around the world

By Strange Sounds - Dec 28, 2016

After a small Christmas break, volcanoes are rumbling again around the world.

On December 27, 2016, the Aviation Color Code and the Alert Level at Bogoslof Volcano were raised to RED and WARNING, respectively, while the Colima volcano ejected ash at least six times. An ash-producing eruption started at 14:05 AKST (23:05 UTC) on December 27, 2016 and is continuing as recorded by seismic data on nearby islands, by lightning, and as seen in recent satellite images. Satellite images suggest that two explosions occurred within one hour. The first eruption sent a plume of ash at about 10,000 meters (30,000 ft asl) in the air. The second wasn’t so powerful. Regional winds are from the west-southwest. AVO reports: We are raising the Aviation Color Code to RED and the Alert Level to WARNING. In Mexico, the Colima volcano has experienced several explosions on December 27, 2016. Ash plumes were reported rising between 1,000 and 3,000 meters above the summit (2:07 > 2km; 6:21 > 1 km; 11:09 > 2 km; 1:36 p.m. > 2km; 2:58 p.m. > 3 km; … 23h39 > 2.5 km) Meanwhile, three weak explosions with gray ash plume rising to 3,000 meters asl were reported at Guatemala’s Santiaguito volcano. Between these explosions, a constant white degassing was recorded. 3 explosions and constant degasing at Santiaguito volcano on December 27, 2016. The Sabancaya volcano, in the Arequipa region of Peru, also made a comeback overnight sending ash and smoke as far as 3,500 metres into the sky, affecting the neighbouring areas of Cabanaconde, Tapay, Lari, Madrigal, Pinchollo, Maca and parts of Achoma. An earlier explosion was registered last Friday when Sabancaya sent a plume of smoke 2,500 meters into the sky.

Obama administration is close to announcing measures to punish Russia for election interference

By Ellen Nakashima December 27

The Obama administration is close to announcing a series of measures to punish Russia for its interference in the 2016 presidential election, including economic sanctions and diplomatic censure, according to U.S. officials. The administration is finalizing the details, which also are expected to include covert action that will probably involve cyber-operations, the officials said. An announcement on the public elements of the response could come as early as this week. The sanctions portion of the package culminates weeks of debate in the White House on how to revise a 2015 executive order that was meant to give the president authority to respond to cyberattacks from overseas but that did not cover efforts to influence the electoral system. The Obama administration rolled the executive order out to great fanfare as a way to punish and deter foreign hackers who harm U.S. economic or national security. The threat to use it last year helped wring a pledge out of China’s president that his country would cease hacking U.S. companies’ secrets to benefit Chinese firms. But officials concluded this fall that the order could not, as written, be used to punish the most significant cyber-provocation in recent memory against the United States — Russia’s hacking of Democratic organizations, targeting of state election systems and meddling in the presidential election. With the clock ticking, the White House is working on adapting the authority to punish the Russians, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. President Obama pledged this month that there would be a response to Moscow’s interference in the U.S. elections. Russia had denied involvement in the hacking. One clear way to use the order against the Russian suspects would be to declare the electoral systems part of the “critical infrastructure” of the United States. Or the order could be amended to clearly apply to the new threat — interfering in elections. Administration officials would also like to make it difficult for President-elect Donald Trump to roll back any action they take. “Part of the goal here is to make sure that we have as much of the record public or communicated to Congress in a form that would be difficult to simply walk back,” said one senior administration official. Obama issued the executive order in April 2015, creating the sanctions tool as a way to hold accountable people who harm computer systems related to critical functions such as electricity generation or transportation, or who gain a competitive advantage through the cyber­­theft of commercial secrets. The order allows the government to freeze the assets in the United States of people overseas who have engaged in cyber-acts that have threatened U.S. national security or financial stability. The sanctions would also block commercial transactions with the designated individuals and bar their entry into the country. But just a year later, a Russian military spy agency would hack into the Democratic National Committee and steal a trove of emails that were released a few months later on WikiLeaks, U.S. officials said. Other releases followed, including the hacked emails of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta. “Fundamentally, it was a low-tech, high-impact event,” said Zachary Goldman, a sanctions and national security expert at New York University School of Law. And the 2015 executive order was not crafted to target hackers who steal emails and dump them on WikiLeaks or seek to disrupt an election. “It was an authority published at a particular time to address a particular set of problems,” he said. So officials “need to engage in some legal acrobatics to fit the DNC hack into an existing authority, or they need to write a new authority,” Goldman said. Administration officials would like Obama to use the power before leaving office to demonstrate its utility. “When the president came into office, he didn’t have that many tools out there to use as a response” to malicious cyber-acts, said Ari Schwartz, a former senior director for cybersecurity on the National Security Council. “Having the sanctions tool is really a big one. It can make a very strong statement in a way that is less drastic than bombing a country and more impactful than sending out a cable from the State Department.” The National Security Council concluded that it would not be able to use the authority against Russian hackers because their malicious activity did not clearly fit under its terms, which require harm to critical infrastructure or the theft of commercial secrets. “You would (a) have to be able to say that the actual electoral infrastructure, such as state databases, was critical infrastructure, and (b) that what the Russians did actually harmed it,” said the administration official. “Those are two high bars.” Although Russian government hackers are believed to have penetrated at least one state voter-registration database, they did not tamper with the data, officials said. Some analysts believe that state election systems would fit under “government facilities,” which is one of the 16 critical infrastructure sectors designated by the Department of Homeland Security. Another option is to use the executive order against other Russian targets — say, hackers who stole commercial secrets — and then, in either a public message or a private one, make clear that the United States considers its electoral systems to be critical infrastructure. The idea is not only to punish but also to deter. “As much as I am concerned about what happened to us in the election, I am also concerned about what will happen to us in the future,” a second administration official said. “I am firmly convinced that the Russians and others will say, ‘That worked pretty well in 2016, so let’s keep going.’ We have elections every two years in this country.” Even the threat of sanctions can have deterrent value. Officials and experts point to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s agreement with Obama last year that his country would stop commercial cyber­spying. Xi came to the table after news reports that summer that the administration was preparing to sanction Chinese companies. Complicating matters, the Trump transition team has not yet had extensive briefings with the White House on cybersecurity issues, including the potential use of the cyber sanctions order. The slow pace has caused consternation among officials, who fear that the administration’s accomplishments in cyber­­security could languish if the next administration fails to understand their value. [Trump turning away intelligence briefers since election win] Sanctions are not a silver bullet. Obama noted that “we already have enormous numbers of sanctions against the Russians” for their activities in Ukraine. So it is questionable, some experts say, whether adding new ones would have a meaningful effect in changing the Kremlin’s behavior. But in combination with other measures, they could be effective. Criminal indictments of Russians might become an option, officials said, but the FBI has so far not gathered enough evidence that could be introduced in a criminal case. At one point, federal prosecutors and FBI agents in San Francisco considered indicting Guccifer 2.0, a nickname for a person or people believed to be affiliated with the Russian influence operation and whose true identity was unknown. Before the election, the administration used diplomatic channels to warn Russia. Obama spoke to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin at a Group of 20 summit in China in September. About a week before the election, the United States sent a “hotline”-style message to Moscow using a special channel for crisis communication created in 2013 as part of the State Department’s Nuclear Risk Reduction Center. As part of that message, the officials said, the administration asked Russia to stop targeting state voter registration and election systems. It was the first use of that system. The Russians, officials said, appeared to comply.

Russia calls U.S. move to better arm Syrian rebels a 'hostile act'

By Andrew Osborn | MOSCOW

Russia said on Tuesday that a U.S. decision to ease restrictions on arming Syrian rebels had opened the way for deliveries of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, a move it said would directly threaten Russian forces in Syria. Moscow last year launched a campaign of air strikes in Syria to help President Bashar al-Assad and his forces retake territory lost to rebels, some of whom are supported by the United States. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the policy change easing restrictions on weapons supplies had been set out in a new U.S. defense spending bill and that Moscow regarded the step as a hostile act. U.S. President Barack Obama, who has been sharply critical of Russia's intervention in Syria, signed the annual defense policy bill into law last week. State Department spokesman Mark Toner dismissed the Russian charges, saying the administration remains opposed to providing portable anti-aircraft missiles, or MANPADS, to Syrian opposition groups. "Our position on MANPADS has not changed. We have a very deep concern about that kind of weaponry getting into Syria," Toner said, referring to fears that portable anti-aircraft missiles could end up in the hands of Islamist militants and be used against civilian airliners. The National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law by Obama on Dec. 23, appears designed to assuage the administration's misgivings but imposes a new layer of congressional oversight on any presidential decision to provide them. A provision bars the U.S. Defense Department from spending funds on MANPADS for Syrian rebel groups until the secretaries of state and defense submit a report to congressional committees explaining the decision to do so. The report would have to include which groups would receive the weapons, intelligence analyses on the groups and the kinds and numbers of MANPADS to be supplied. Moscow cast the bill as lifting restrictions on the provision of such weapons to Syrian rebels. "Washington has placed its bets on supplying military aid to anti-government forces who don't differ than much from blood thirsty head choppers. Now, the possibility of supplying them with weapons, including mobile anti-aircraft complexes, has been written into this new bill," Zakharova said in a statement. "In the administration of B. Obama they must understand that any weapons handed over will quickly end up in the hands of jihadists," she added, saying that perhaps that was what the White House was counting on happening. The U.S. decision was a direct threat to the Russian air force, to other Russian military personnel, and to Russia's embassy in Damascus, said Zakharova. "We therefore view the step as a hostile act." Zakharova accused the Obama administration of trying to "put a mine" under the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump by attempting to get it to continue what she called Washington's "anti-Russian line." The Obama administration has in recent weeks expanded the list of Russians affected by U.S. sanctions imposed on Moscow over its actions in Ukraine Trump, during his election campaign, said he was keen to try to improve relations with Moscow and spoke positively about President Vladimir Putin's leadership skills. A back-and-forth exchange between Trump and Putin over nuclear weapons last week tested the Republican's promises to improve relations with Russia however. The Obama administration and U.S. intelligence officials have accused Russia of trying to interfere with the U.S. election by hacking Democratic Party accounts. "The current occupants of the White House imagined that they could pressure Russia," said Zakharova. "Let's hope that those who replace them will be wiser."

How North Korea and the Obama Regime Both Use the Same Mind Control Techniques Against Their Citizens (Video)

December 27, 2016 | NaturalNews Network | NaturalNews.com by Mike Adams

I’ve just released an eye-opening new video that details how U.S. government propaganda under Obama parallels the socially-reinforced mind control tactics used in North Korea, a radical left-wing dictatorship rooted in the cult worship of its leader. Barack Obama is simply a more polite rendition of the same social control tyranny used by Kim Jong-Un. Angela Merkel, in many ways, invokes the same tactics of disinformation and linguistic social control, deliberately lying to the people of Germany in order to control them while the country is systematically destroyed to appease globalist interests. As I also state in the video, most Americans would be obedient Kim Jong-Un worshipers if they had grown up in North Korea. The vast majority of individuals in western society today falsely believe they are independent thinkers, but that’s only because they’ve been indoctrinated under a system of mind control that’s very good at pretending to be based on “freedom.” Watch the full video to see for yourself. (This video was recorded before the Nov. 8 Trump election victory, which provides a least some glimmer of hope that the globalist agenda might be slowed.)

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters Sums Up Obama’s Mid-East Policy: ‘Praise Islam, Ignore Christians, Blame Jews’

‘Nuff said. 12.26.2016

Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters didn’t disappoint when he spoke with Patti Anne Browne on America’s Newsroom Monday, bluntly summing up President Obama’s Middle-East policy in a way only he could. Peters, known for calling the president “such a total pu**y,” was commenting on recent remarks made by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani who called Obama’s attitude towards terrorism “lackadaisical.” However, Peters disagreed with the former mayor for suggesting domestic terrorism has gotten worse under Obama, but that didn’t mean he had kind words for the president, either: "I don’t think he’s right about the domestic scene. Our domestic intelligence and law enforcement agencies have really done an amazingly good job, if you think about it. We haven’t seen another 9/11-level plot or anything even approaching it, really. And inevitably, some terrorists will get through. “Now, Obama could have done a better job, but where you really have to fault the outgoing president is on his disastrous approach to the Middle East which I can bluntly sum up in six words, which is: praise Islam, ignore Christians, blame Jews.” Peters said his summation is evidenced right now with Obama’s stab in the back of Israel over his abstention vote in the U.N over settlements; something the colonel called a “scandalous debacle.” He added: “I think the president’s willful naivety about Islam, his refusal to accept the fact that within Islam there are elements who are distorting the religion badly and killing Muslims as well as Christians and everybody else. His inability to act decisively — even the decision to go after Bin Laden in Pakistan, it took weeks for him to make up his mind about that.” Peters said it was Obama’s childhood years in Indonesia, being brought up in Islam, that romanticized the religion for him and eventually created the indecisiveness he exhibited as president that ended up creating the power vacuum in the Middle East. “He’s Hamlet,” Peters continued. “He’s always been, ‘to be, or not to be’ — wringing his hands, can’t make up his mind and the result, again, is Syria alone, a half a million dead.” Watch the full interview below:

German Girl WARNS Americans: ‘Refugees Will Not Integrate – We Fear For Our Lives!’ (Video)

FEATURED, POLITICAL NEWS, WORLD NEWS

By Jennifer Johnson

16 year old Bibi Wilhailm from Germany made a video of her traumatic experience with Arab and Muslim migrants that Angela Merkel has allowed to overrun her country. She posted the video to her Facebook page and the video quickly went viral. In the video, Bibi says that she and her friends used to live happy, normal lives in Germany but now they live in fear of being attacked, raped or killed by the Muslim and Arab migrants brought into their country by the thousands by Chancellor Angela Merkel. Her message to Americans should be taken very seriously. What is happening in Germany and other parts of Europe is proof that many of them will not adapt to our way of life. Breitbart reported Bibi Wilhailm’s story where she pleaded in her video, “Please help us! It is very hard to live day-to-day as a woman” says 16 year old Bibi, a German girl who had uploaded her personal experiences of Arab and Muslim migrants in a new video that some claim is being censored by Facebook under it’s new “hate speech” guidelines. The 20 minute video was created by the 16 year old Facebook user and starts with her saying that she is, “so scared everywhere, for example if my family and I go out together, or if I see a movie with my friends. Usually I stay out until 6pm in winter, and it is so scary. It is just very hard to live day-to-day as a woman.” The girl – who some social media users report has now been banned from Facebook, though others say she has removed herself possibly out of fear of retribution – then goes on to talk about an incident that happened to her at a local supermarket saying, “I ran all the way home. I was frightened for my life. There’s no other way to describe it.” She talks about her experiences over summer, when a group of Muslims said that her and her friends were “sluts” for walking outside in t-shirts. “Yes, we were wearing t-shirts. It’s summer!” She adds: “Another day, I was wearing this (the outfit in the video). My friend and I purchased it while shopping. If we feel like wearing it, we will wear it! And you Muslims have no right to physically assault or rape us for it! God willing, never in my life. You have no right to attack us because we are wearing t-shirts. You also have no right to rape”. Wilhailm then turns toward what she sees on social media, describing how she has seen, “a 17 year old attacked, a 15 year old attacked, two 12 year olds attacked, so many,” and questions, “why should we, children, have to grow up in such fear?” “I cannot understand why they do this. But more importantly, I cannot understand why Germany is doing nothing! Why is Germany standing by, watching, and then doing nothing? Please explain, why. Men of Germany, these people are killing your children, they are killing your women. We need your protection,” she goes on to say adding, “The politicians live alone in their villas, drink their cocktails, and do nothing. They do nothing! I do not know what world they live in, but please, people, please help us! Please, do something!” Continuing, Wilhailm tells of her own personal experiences with Arab and Muslim migrants saying: “One day, my friend and I were walking down the street, and a group of Arabs were protesting and demonstrating. They shouted, ‘Allah! Allah! Allah is the one God! Kill those infidels! Allah Allah!’ What should I do? Should I wear a burka? Why should I have to convert to Islam?” “It’s fine if you believe in Allah, but why do you want to make everyone else believe in Allah too? I just think it would be better if there were no religion. Stop trying to make everyone else believe in your God when they do not want to”. According to the her experiences, the police are no help. She alleges, “they say it is a problem and they ignore it. It is unfair. They laugh at us. They say we are dumb,” and that, “they don’t care about our fears.” This description matches many other cases where police have been afraid to be labeled as racist for taking a hard line on migrant crime and even victims of migrant crime have been accused of racism for speaking up. Free market liberal group Freiheitliche Aufklaerung or ‘Liberal Education’ posted the video on their Facebook group page and made the following comment when it disappeared from Miss Wilhailm’s page: “How many have already noticed the video “You make Germany broken!” is no longer there. In this video, the 16-year-old girl said that she now is afraid to go out alone and that they can not understand the insane asylum policy of the German government. Europe and Germany are thus ruined… Unfortunately, we live in a social dictatorship, in what critics of the establishment and its illiberal policies are tackled and accosted in the strongest terms.” The group claims it doesn’t have evidence, but says it “cannot rule out a censorship by Facebook 100%”. Breitbart London understands from Facebook that while the matter has not been fully investigated yet, the usual reason for videos disappearing are down to the user taking them down themselves. The censorship fears come after Facebook announced last year that they would help the German government monitor for “hate speech” and as recently as this month Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has demanded Facebook remove posts and videos in the wake of the Cologne sex attacks. The company insists it does not comment on individual incidents. The video ends with a stark message for German Chancellor Angela Merkel: “Thank you, Angela Merkel, for killing Germany! I have no more respect for you, Merkel. I do not think you know what you have done. You do not see how our lives have changed. Open your eyes! Is this normal? Should I, a 16-year old who is almost 17, be so scared to walk outside my house? No, it is not normal. You have killed Germany!” She closes: “German men, please help your women! Help your children! I am so scared. My friends have the same fears. We are shocked that this has happened. I hope this video can convince you, and that these terrible events can stop.” Social media users are posting the video to as many video sharing sites and blogs as possible in a bid to keep it online. WATCH: In German – a transcript from Pastebin is below: TRANSCRIPT: Hello, you can read the newspapers but this video is about the real situation in Germany. I would like to tell everyone about this on Youtube and Facebook. I am almost 16. I would like everyone to know what is going on, what I am authentically feeling at this moment. And I am so scared everywhere. For example, if my family and I go out together, or if I see a movie with my friends. Usually I stay at home, but sometimes I stay out until 6 pm in winter, and it is so scary. It is just very hard to live day-to-day life as a woman. I just want to say that I am not a racist. But one day, a terrible thing happened at the supermarket. I ran all the way home. I was so frightened for my life. There’s no other way to describe it. My aunt and her friend have said you have to grow up. Why should we, children, have to grow up in such fear? It’s not just me, my friends too. You can see on Facebook, a 17 year old attacked, a 15 year old attacked, two 12-year olds attacked, so many. It is really so sad that this is happening … because of YOU PEOPLE. I cannot understand why they do this. But more importantly, I cannot understand why Germany is doing nothing! Why is Germany standing by, watching, and then doing nothing? Please explain, why. Men of Germany, these people are killing your children, they are killing your women. We need your protection. We are so scared, we don’t want to be frightened to go to the grocery store alone after sunset. The politicians live alone in their villas, drink their cocktails, and do nothing. They do nothing! I do not know what world they live in, but please, people, please help us! Please, do something! I cannot understand why this is happening. One day, my friend and I were walking down the street, and a group of Arabs were protesting and demonstrating. They shouted, “Allah! Allah! Allah is the one God! Kill those infidels! Allah Allah!” What should I do? Should I wear a burka? Why should I have to convert to Islam? It’s fine if you believe in Allah, but why do you want to make everyone else believe in Allah too? I just think it would be better if there were no religion. Stop trying to make everyone else believe in your God when they do not want to. Please, people of Germany. Do something! When I try to tell the authorities about what has happened, they hold their hand up towards me and they say it is a problem and then ignore it. and they laugh. It is unfair. They laugh at us. They say we are dumb. They think this not only of me, but of the entire state of Germany. They don’t care about our fear. Please help us. This is an emergency! There are more and more of them. One time in summer, the Muslims said we were sluts for walking outside in a t-shirt. Yes, we were wearing t-shirts. It’s summer! Another day, I was wearing this. My friend and I purchased it while shopping hehe. If we feel like wearing it, we will wear it! And you Muslims have no right to physically assault or rape us for it! God willing, never in my life. You have no right to attack us because we are wearing t-shirts. You also have no right to rape. The life of Germany has changed because these people cannot integrate. We give them so much help. We support them financially and they do not have to work. But they only want more babies and more welfare and more money. Men of Germany, please, patrol the streets and protect us. Do this for your women and your children. If you do that, I believe that we will have a chance. This sort of action would be wonderful. We would be so grateful and thankful. So many thanks, if steadily, more men would come to protect us. We are so scared. I am so upset about what Merkel has done. Thank you, Angela Merkel, for killing Germany! I have no more respect for you, Merkel. I do not think you know what you have done. You do not see how our lives have changed. Open your eyes! Is this normal? Should I, a 16-year old who is almost 17, be so scared to walk outside my house? No, it is not normal. You have killed Germany! This is the truth. We are no longer allowed to walk outside. We are no longer allowed to wear our clothes. We are no longer allowed to live the German life. This is the sad truth. I think it’s about time to end this video. I believe I have given a full account from a normal person. I hope others can see this and understand. I only want to end with one message: Men, please, help your women. Help your children. I am so scared. My friends have the same fear. We are shocked that this has happened. I hope this video can convince you, and that this terrible events can stop. President Obama has scheduled 100,000 refugees to be placed in these 180 United States cities.

The UN Declares War on Judeo-Christian Civilization

by Giulio Meotti December 27, 2016 at 5:30 am

How is it that Western jurisprudence, created after the Second World War to prevent more crimes against humanity, is now being used to perpetuate more crimes and against democracies? It is a dreadful manipulation to try erase all Jewish and Christian history, to make believe that all the world was originally and forever only Islamic. That is what a jihad looks like. It is not just orange jumpsuits, beheadings and slavery. If one can erase and rewrite history, one can redirect the future. If Palestinian men beat their wives, it's Israel's fault, argued UN expert Dubravka Simonovic with a straight face. Last month, the President of the UN General Assembly sported the famous keffiyah scarf, a symbol of the "Palestinian resistance" (read terrorism). This is simply the continuation of the cultural obliteration of Israel, which is supposed to justify next its physical obliteration. The UN's war on the Israel's Jews is, at heart, a war against the West. The UN and its backers are briskly paving the way for the European Caliphate. 2016 has been a sumptuous year for the anti-Semites at the United Nations. The UN Security Council just targeted the only democracy in the Middle East: the State of Israel. The outgoing Obama Administration reportedly orchestrated what even Haaretz called a "hit and run" campaign in UN to denigrate the Jewish State and leave it to a fate where only conflict and hate loom. This is a cultural genocide that is no less dangerous than terror attacks. It is based on anti-Semitic lies and creates the atmosphere not for achieving "peace", as disingenuously claimed, but for perpetuating war. UNSC Resolution 2334 is the culmination of a dizzyingly fruitful year for anti-Semites. Last November, committees of the UN General Assembly in a single day adopted 10 resolutions against Israel, the only open society in the Middle East. How many resolutions have been approved against Syria? One. How many against the rogue state of North Korea? One. How many against Russia when it annexed Crimea? One. Hillel Neuer, of UN Watch, observed: "Even as Syrian president Bashar Assad is preparing for the final massacre of his own people in Aleppo, the U.N. adopted a resolution -- drafted and co-sponsored by Syria -- which falsely condemns Israel for "repressive measures" against Syrian citizens on the Golan Heights. It's obscene." Not a single resolution was approved for those states which really abuse human rights, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Venezuela, China or Cuba, not to mention many virtual tyrannies throughout Africa. Only one resolution was approved for the "Palestinian refugee properties", but not even a single mention for the property of the Iraqi Christians in Mosul. Another resolution in this racist banquet of the United Nations concerned the "application of the Geneva Convention in the occupied territories". There are hundreds of territorial disputes in the world, from Tibet to Cyprus, but only Israel deserves to be called out? According to the liars at the United Nations, the most evil country in the world is Israel. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad, and Jordan's Prince Zeid al Hussein are sponsoring even now a "blacklist" of international companies that have ties with Israeli companies in Judea, Samaria, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, to facilitate boycotting Israel in the evident hope of economically exterminating the only democracy and pluralistic nation in the region: the Jewish State. The UN Envoy for Children and Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui of Algeria, suggested also including the Israeli army in the blacklist of countries and groups that regularly cause harm to children, along with Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Islamic State, the Taliban, and countries such as the Congo and the Central African Republic, infamous for their child-soldiers -- but of course not the Palestinians, who continue to promote using children as combatants and children as "martyrs". How is it that Western jurisprudence, created after the Second World War to prevent more crimes against humanity, is now being used to perpetuate more crimes and against democracies? The UN women's rights commission condemned Israel as the world's only violator of women's rights. Not Syria, where Assad's forces use rape as a tactic of war, or the Islamic State, which enslaves women from religious minorities. Not Saudi Arabia, where women are punished if they do not wear the Islamic full-covering clothing in scorching temperatures, or drive a car or even leave the house. Not Iran, where "adultery" (which can include being raped) is punishable by being stoned to death. And if Palestinian men beat their wives, it's Israel's fault, argued UN expert Dubravka Simonovic with a straight face. The UN's World Health Organization also singled out Israel as the only violator in the world of "mental, physical and environmental health", despite Israel being the only state in the world actually to give medical care to its enemies (ask Hamas leaders' children). Canadian law professor Michael Lynk was then appointed as the UN's "impartial" investigator of alleged Israeli human rights violations despite his long record of anti-Israel lobbying, including his board membership on many pro-Palestinian organizations, including Friends of Sabeel and the National Council on Canada-Arab Relations. Last October, the UN cultural agency, UNESCO -- by magically declaring ancient Biblical Jewish sites "Islamic", even though Islam did not historically exist until the seventh century, hundreds of years later -- pretended, with the villainous complicity of the West, to erase the Jewish-Christian roots of Jerusalem. It is a dreadful manipulation to try erase all Jewish and Christian history, to make believe that all the world was originally and forever only Islamic. It is a jihad. That is what a jihad looks like. It is not just orange jumpsuits, beheadings and slavery. If one can erase and rewrite history, one can redirect the future. If you do not know where you are coming from, what values will you defend or fight for? Names matter. If it is Jewish, then it is called "Judea and Samaria"; if it is "Palestine", you can say the "Jews stole it" and that Israel is a "colonialist construct" based on "injustice". Why then is no one is pointing to the entire continent of South America, conquered from the native Indians by Cortés, Pizarro and Europeans with guns? The latest UN Security Council resolution against Israel is not only about "settlements", but the Old City of Jerusalem. Its members want to reset history not at 1967, but at 1948, the year Israel was born. When Marcel Breuer and Bernard Zerfuss designed UNESCO's building in concrete and glass at the Place Fontenoy in Paris, and Pablo Picasso donated frescoes to it, they most likely imagined the rebirth of Western culture after the tragedies of war, the Holocaust and the Nazi nightmare. Never in any other spot on earth were words such as "education", "science", "culture", "freedom", "peace" and "brotherhood" repeated so many times. There was hope and commitment that the future would be better -- not worse. But the dream lasted no longer than the few minutes of the announcement. The Soviet Union had in fact already stained UNESCO's cultural programs with the red of Communism, such as when UNESCO promoted a "new world information order", the goal of which goal was to end the dominance of the Western press -- presented as a "threat" to the "cultural identity" of "Third-World" nations. Under the Eiffel Tower, the authoritarian and anti-Western Third World then took control of the UN cultural center, which became, according with the Washington Post, "overly bureaucratic, costly, wasteful and imbued with an anti-Western, anti-capitalist bias". Since then, Israel continues to be treated as a pariah by these ideological and corporeal criminals on the Seine. Even after that, in 1975 the UN body "tipped its hand" by propagating the anti-Semitic blood libel of "Zionism is racism". Last month, the President of the UN General Assembly, Peter Thomson, sported the famous checkered scarf, the keffiyah, a symbol of the "Palestinian resistance" (read terrorism). This is simply the continuation of the cultural obliteration of Israel, which is supposed to justify next its physical obliteration. The fate of Judeo-Christian civilization -- Christianity as well as Judaism -- on which all our values are based, is tied to the fate of the State of Israel. If Israel ceases to exist, so does Christianity. The world has been witnessing how the few Christians and other non-Muslims still remaining in the rest of the Middle East -- once the glorious Christian Byzantium -- are being slaughtered, now that the Jews and Greeks are gone. The United Nations' war on the Israel's Jews is, at heart, a war against the West. The UN and its backers are briskly paving the way for the European Caliphate. Giulio Meotti, Cultural Editor for Il Foglio, is an Italian journalist and author.

UN Sanctioned Antisemitism

By Hal Lindsey

The world’s war on Jews continues to grow in intensity and in brazenness. From college campuses to the United Nations, people no longer hide their bigotry against Jews. Now they’re proud of it. Many of those working toward Israel’s demise say they are not anti-Semites. They say you can be anti-Israel without being anti-Jew. But when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially proclaims that Israel has no historic link to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, there can be no doubt. That age-old hobgoblin of the world — antisemitism — has roared back to life! On Tuesday in Paris, the UNESCO executive board approved a resolution denying any historical Jewish ties to the Temple Mount. I wrote about this in April when UNESCO first floated the idea, but who would have thought it would get this far? Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “To say that Israel has no connection to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall is like saying that China has no connection to the Great Wall of China or that Egypt has no connection to the Pyramids.” U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, “We are deeply concerned about these kinds of recurring, politicized resolutions that do nothing to advance constructive results on the ground.” CNN belittled Israel’s complaint as a “spat.” But it was a big enough spat that Israel has now cut off all ties to UNESCO. Carmel Shama-Hacohen, Israel’s ambassador to UNESCO, said, “We won’t negotiate and we won’t take part in these ugly games. There is no place for these games in UNESCO. This noble organization was established to preserve history, not to rewrite it.” UNESCO’s own website says, “Peace must be established on the basis of humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity.” Do they even see Jews as a part of “humanity”? How can they pretend that Jews have no connection to the Temple Mount, and say that their goal is “humanity’s moral and intellectual solidarity”? USECO says its job is the “protection of heritage.” Yet they deny three thousand years of Jewish heritage. The resolution never refers to the site as “the Temple Mount.” It doesn’t mention the historical Jewish Temples built there. UNESCO refers to it only as “al-Haram al-Sharif,” Arabic for “the Noble Sanctuary.” For the Temple Mount to be exclusively Muslim, as UNESCO says, the temples could never have existed there. Even the Western Wall, sometimes called the “Wailing Wall,” is depicted in the report as wholly Muslim. Secular history, Bible history, and archeology all give overwhelming testimony to the existence of these great temples in this specific location. This is not just a matter of Jewish heritage, but also Christian. Jesus taught in the Temple, and had important things to say about it. When Muslim authorities did restoration work inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque, they tore out and threw away lumber that scientists confirm are of the right age and type to have been used in the first Temple — the one built by Solomon. For most of human history, wood from previous construction was reused. These beams had been used in Solomon’s temple, reused in the second temple, kept during Herod’s renovations, used again in Catholic churches built on the site, and finally used by the Muslims in building Al-Aqsa. When Muslim authorities built an underground mosque on this land that they claim to hold as holy, they threw away and in some cases destroyed thousands of artifacts from at least as far back as the second temple. Instead of treating the site with care as Jewish, Christian, and even atheistic archeologists would have done, they used jackhammers and bulldozers. They hauled off truckloads of dirt filled with smashed artifacts. They dumped it as trash. Muslims say a horse named “Buraq” once flew the Prophet Mohammed to the “Seventh Heaven,” using the Temple Mount as his launch pad. The UNESCO resolution accepts this without question. But they deny the three-thousand-year history of Israel’s connection to the mount. I am stunned by the brazenness of UNESCO’s campaign to eradicate any Jewish connection to the land of their fathers. The world is proceeding down a dark path. We can take comfort from the fact that these things were foretold in God’s Word. And those same remarkable prophecies also tell us that, in the end, goodness, truth, justice, and mercy will all win.

Obama’s Barbaric UN Resolution

Report: he’s cooking up another one.

December 27, 2016 P. David Hornik

UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which was passed on Friday and focuses on Israeli settlement activity, is even worse than its critics—who include Democratic lawmakers and the staunchly left-wing Central Conference of American (Reform) Rabbis (here and here)—have made it out to be. The resolution—whose passage was made possible by the U.S. abstention ordered by President Obama from Hawaii—is not just shameful, unfair, unbalanced, or destructive. It’s barbaric. Only in one clause—which is in the preamble, which has less force than the body of the text—does the resolution explicitly call on Palestinians to do anything. The preamble calls on “the Palestinian Authority Security Forces to maintain effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantling terrorist capabilities.” In contrast, five full clauses in the body of the text portray Israel as a rogue state engaged in endemic criminality. These clauses call “the establishment by Israel of settlements in the Palestinian territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem…a flagrant violation under international law” and demand “that Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.” But if even “East Jerusalem” is off limits to Israeli Jews, then—as pointed out by Alan Dershowitz, who was for years a center-left supporter of Obama: Under this resolution, the access roads that opened up Hebrew University to Jewish and Arab students and the Hadassah Hospital to Jewish and Arab patients are illegal, as are all the rebuilt synagogues—destroyed by Jordan—in the ancient Jewish Quarter of the Old City. And even as the diplomatic Chanukah greetings keep rolling in, “illegal,” too, are the Chanukah candle-lighting ceremonies at the Western Wall—another “East Jerusalem” site that Israel has extensively refurbished. Then comes the “balance.” The sixth clause “Calls…to prevent all acts of violence against civilians, including acts of terror…and calls for compliance with obligations under international law for the strengthening of ongoing efforts to combat terrorism.” Terrorism and acts of violence by whom? It doesn’t say. The only reasonable inference is that both sides engage in violence and terror. In reality, Israel’s security forces report that in 2016 they thwarted 180 Palestinian shooting attacks in the West Bank alone. The resolution’s seventh clause is more explicit; it “Calls upon both parties…to refrain from provocative actions, incitement and inflammatory rhetoric.” To sum up, then, five clauses excoriate Israel as a usurper and land thief; one clause calls for an end to terror without naming anyone as responsible for it, indicating that both sides must be; one clause calls on “both parties” to put an end to incitement. The resolution, in other words, goes far beyond the longstanding practice of drawing moral equivalence between Palestinian terror and Israeli “settlements.” Apart from one allusion in the preamble, it gingerly sidesteps the issue of Palestinian terror and incitement to terror. It seems not to want to offend the Palestinians. It openly delivers, however, a broadside against Israel for building homes, hospitals, synagogues, schools, and so on in land that the resolution wants to be Judenrein. Nowhere does the resolution mention that, according to international documents to which the United States is a signatory—including UN Security Council Resolution 242 and the Oslo accords—the land in question is designated as disputed land subject to final-status negotiations. According to the resolution, there would be nothing to negotiate about. It’s all “occupied Palestinian territory”—including Judaism’s most sacred sites. Such a resolution should have been far below the moral standards of a U.S. administration ostensibly concerned about “peace” and a “solution.” As Dershowitz notes in the same article, “under Security Council rules [an abstention] has the same effect as a vote in favor.” In reality, the Obama administration voted in favor of a barbaric resolution that pussyfoots around terror but assaults Judaism itself by making Jews usurpers even in the heart of Jerusalem. The resolution should also have been morally repugnant to the other full-fledged democracies that are members of the Security Council—Britain, France, Japan, New Zealand, and Spain. Instead, New Zealand—after Egypt rescinded its sponsorship—filled in by becoming one of the resolution’s sponsors. The other democracies all joined New Zealand in voting in favor, and when the resolution passed, the chamber erupted in applause. For Israelis it was a chilling moment. As Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon put it: We have excellent relations with all these countries—economic, diplomatic, and security ties—but at the moment of truth, not one representative from those countries went along with us, and in the end they even applauded. Watching [the vote] on TV, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Psychohistorians of the future will have to grapple with the question of how the idea of Israeli “settlements,” even in the democratic world, came to be associated with evil equivalent to—or greater than—terrorism. Meanwhile Barak Ravid, diplomatic correspondent of Haaretz, reports: Israel fears that the United States and France want to advance another move on the Israeli-Palestinian issue before the Obama administration wraps up its term. A senior official in Jerusalem said that during Sunday’s security cabinet meeting, ministers were presented with an assessment that during the international foreign ministers’ meeting scheduled for January 15 in Paris as part of the French peace initiative, a series of decisions on the peace process will be made. These will immediately be brought to the UN Security Council for a vote and will be adopted there before January 20. … Representatives of the Foreign Ministry, the National Security Council and others who attended the security cabinet meeting presented information indicating that the trend in talks between France, the U.S. and other countries in preparation for the foreign ministers’ meeting tended toward advancing such a move. If such a Security Council resolution goes through, it will not be favorable to Israel. It’s fully expected that it will dictate terms for a “final settlement” that return Israel to the narrow, fragile, porous 1949 armistice lines—or something very similar to them—that invited the 1967 Six Day War in the first place. All decent Americans should be repelled by President Obama’s exploitation of the final weeks of his presidency to wage a vindictive war against a democratic ally.

Obama stabbed Israel in the back

By Todd Starnes Published December 27, 2016 FoxNews.com

While Christmas carolers were proclaiming Joy to the World - President Obama was backstabbing Israel. The United States refused to veto a United Nations resolution last week that condemned Israel's settlements on the West Bank. Click here for a FREE subscription to Todd's Newsletter: a must-read for Conservatives! The Simon Wiesenthal Center named the Obama administration's move as the worst case of anti-Semitism in 2016. "The most stunning 2016 UN attack on Israel was facilitated by President [Barack] Obama when the US abstained on a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel for settlement construction. It reversed decades-long US policy of vetoing such diplomatic moves against the Jewish State," the Jewish human rights organization wrote. And honestly -- it's not all that surprising. This president seems more comfortable sipping appletinis with the despots who want to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. To continue reading Todd's column, click here.

Israel braces for more tensions with US as Kerry plans major speech

Published December 27, 2016 FoxNews.com

Facebook Twitter livefyre Email

The State Department confirmed Tuesday that Kerry plans to discuss the Middle East peace process on Wednesday. The Times of Israel and Israel’s Channel 2 report that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is concerned about an Obama administration bid to have the Security Council endorse principles for a Palestinian state, and is reaching out to allies in the U.S. Congress and the incoming Trump administration to try and deter further action against Israel. Netanyahu reportedly is concerned about what parameters Kerry may lay out for a Palestinian state. While it is unclear whether the Obama administration would push for any further Security Council action – after a U.S. abstention allowed the anti-settlement resolution to clear the council Friday – the White House and State Department have offered some details about Kerry's planned speech. Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told Channel 2 that Kerry will lay out a comprehensive vision for how the U.S. sees the conflict being resolved. He also rejected Netanyahu’s description of last week’s vote as an “ambush,” citing long-standing concerns from President Obama and Kerry about settlement activity pushing into the West Bank and making a two-state solution more difficult to achieve. Rhodes defended Obama’s support for Israel and, perhaps assuaging Netanyahu’s latest concerns, said the U.S. was not looking to impose a resolution to the conflict via the U.N. measure. Obama in 2011 publicly called for Israel to pull back to the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War, a call Netanyahu rejected at the time. Netanyahu spokesman David Keyes told Fox News on Monday they were “definitely concerned” when asked about Kerry's planned address. The Israeli government, meanwhile, continues to insist it has evidence that the Obama administration helped orchestrate last week’s U.N. resolution and vote – and is vowing to share those details with the Trump team. The resolution condemned Israeli settlement activist in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. “We have that evidence … we’re going to present it to the new administration, and if they choose to share it with the American people, that’ll be their choice,” Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer told Fox News’ “Special Report.” “It’s very clear that the U.S. orchestrated that.” He said an Israeli minister heard “directly” that Vice President Biden intervened to get Ukraine to support the resolution and added, “The evidence we have is much greater than that.” As for his country’s concerns about Friday’s measure, he said it undermines the peace process by removing a piece of leverage they would have at the negotiating table: territory. He also voiced support for congressional efforts to reconsider funding for the United Nations in the future. The White House, though, has sought to explain its abstention as rooted in concerns that the settlements themselves undermine the peace process. Spokesman Eric Schultz also pushed back on allegations they orchestrated the vote. “The US did not draft this resolution nor did the US introduce this resolution,” he said in a statement. “The Egyptians, in partnership with the Palestinians, are the ones who began circulating an earlier draft of the resolution. The Egyptians are the ones who moved it forward on Friday. And we took the position that we did when it was put to a vote." Kerry also said in a statement after Friday's vote: "Today, the United States acted with one primary objective in mind: to preserve the possibility of the two state solution, which every U.S. administration for decades has agreed is the only way to achieve a just and lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. ... As a lifelong friend of Israel, I have taken every opportunity to speak out, or cast a vote, to protect its security and the chance for a peaceful future." The Israelis tried to appeal to Trump last week to help head off the U.N. settlement resolution. While the vote was only delayed to Friday, Trump has resumed his criticism of the international body and vowed changes. “The United Nations has such great potential but right now it is just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good time. So sad!” he tweeted Monday.

Merry Christmas From Ray & Tracye Gano – Prophezine

By Ray Gano - December 23, 2016

Hello All, ray-tracye-panama-webTracye and I wanted to take a few moments and wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. NOW… before some of you write me back, we all know what the “bible scholars” say… it isn’t Christ’s real birthday and it stems from pagan ceremonies. AND … Yes, I am sick and tired of how it has been horribly commercialized and made into one big shopping day. But you know what? Right now, at this moment I do not care about any of that. This has been a tough year for all of us and we all can use a little “Joy To The World” in our lives right now. Let us remember the following… Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.“and they shall call his name Emmanuel…” Which means, God With Us. We used to care about our fellow man, but that seems to have left us for some time now. SO, here is my challenge to you. Let’s put all this junk aside for just a few days. Let’s look back when we did care, we loved to wish people Merry Christmas, we loved giving, smiling, laughing and be of good cheer. Let’s have that sparkle in your eye once again and have the genuine love and compassion that we once had. Let’s remember that even though this is not the day Christ was really born, let’s celebrate it as if it was and realize.. I mean really realize that God lowered himself and came to earth as a baby. Was raised as one of us, was able to sympathize with us and was truly.. God With Us. He came down here in the flesh so that He could pay the ultimate price for or sins. He loved us so much that He allowed Himself to be beaten, scourged, mocked and broken for us. It is by His stripes we are healed and it is by His blood we are saved so that we may live with Him forever and ever. So, for these next couple of days, lets put aside the troubles, the burdens, all the ugliness that the world has dumped upon us and let’s celebrate both in our hearts, but with our fellow man that God is with us and will never forsake us. No matter what you think or believe, tell that stranger that you meet at the store, at the gas station, at work, where ever. Wish them Merry Christmas and also say.. YES!!.. God is with us! That is my challenge to you for these next few days. Are you up for it? Please remember Tracye and I this holiday season. Please pray that we can get back home to the US. Please pray that God quickly send us buyers for our home. Pray that He raises up the resources we need so that we can make it back home. Thank you for being there for us and being part of our family. I am really looking forward to meeting more of you once we get back to the US and I am able to get back on the road again. May God bless you and keep you and may His favor be upon you and your family in this coming new year. May it be joyful and memorable and that you and your family live exceedingly abundant for Him and in Him, Our Lord Christ Jesus. If you would like to provide a small gift to us this holiday season, please use the following link…. http://tinyurl.com/Help-Support-Prophezine

Top Ex-White House Economist Admits 94% Of All New Jobs Under Obama Were Part-Time

by Tyler Durden Dec 24, 2016 11:34 AM

Just over six years ago, in December of 2010, we wrote "Charting America's Transformation To A Part-Time Worker Society", in which we predicted - and showed - that in light of the underlying changes resulting from the second great depression, whose full impacts remain masked by trillions in monetary stimulus and soon, perhaps fiscal, America is shifting from a traditional work force, one where the majority of new employment is retained on a full-time basis, to a "gig" economy, where workers are severely disenfranchised, and enjoy far less employment leverage, job stability and perks than their pre-crash peers. It also explains why despite the 4.5% unemployment rate, which the Fed has erroneously assumed is indicative of job market at "capacity", wage growth not only refuses to materialize, but as we showed yesterday, the growth in real disposable personal income was the lowest since 2014. When we first penned our article, it was dubbed "fringe" tinfoil hattery, or in the latest vernacular, "fake news." Fast forward 6 years, when a report by Harvard and Princeton economists Lawrence Katz and Alan Krueger, confirms exactly what we warned. In their study, the duo show that from 2005 to 2015, the proportion of Americans workers engaged in what they refer to as “alternative work” soared during the Obama era, from 10.7% in 2005 to 15.8% in 2015. Alternative, or "gig" work is defined as "temporary help agency workers, on-call workers, contract company workers, independent contractors or freelancers", and is generally unsteady, without a fixed paycheck and with virtually no benefits. The two economists also found that each of the common types of alternative work increased from 2005 to 2015—with the largest changes in the number of independent contractors and workers provided by contract firms, such as janitors that work full-time at a particular office, but are paid by a janitorial services firm. Quoted by quartz, he said “We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Krueger. “And over 60% was due to the [the rise] of independent contractors, freelancers and contract company workers.” In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment. While the finding is good news for some, such as graphic designers and lawyers who hate going to an office, for whom new technology and Obamacare has made it more appealing to become an independent contractor. But for those seeking a steady administrative assistant office job, the market is grim. It also explains why despite an apparent recovery in the labor market, wage growth has been non-existant, due to the lack of career advancement and salary increase options for this vast cohort which was hired over the past decade. The decline of conventional full-time work has impacted every demographic. Whether this change is good or bad depends on what kinds of jobs people want. “Workers seeking full-time, steady work have lost,” said Krueger. He then added, perhaps sarcastically, that “while many of those who value flexibility and have a spouse with a steady job have probably gained.” Yes, well, spousal support aside, it also confirms another troubling finding this website reported first earlier this month, namely that the number of multiple jobholders has recently hit the highest number this century. Not surprisingly, the study found that young workers represented the largest growth of contractors who frequently do not receive any kind of benefits, even when they are working full-time. The issue is particularly frustrating to employees in the entertainment industry where media conglomerates rely on freelancers for long periods of time without offering benefits, an arrangement frequently referred to as “permalance.” None of these "qualitative" aspects, however, matter to the outgoing president, who believes his administration was a net positive for workers. "Since I signed Obamacare into law (in 2010), our businesses have added more than 15 million new jobs," said Obama, during his farewell press conference last Friday. He did not delve into the details of just what those 15 million new jobs were. Now we know; and we also know why the Fed is making a huge mistake in thinking it can hike rates and tighten financial conditions, to reverse engineer wage growth, when corporations are guaranteed to not increase wages even in response to higher rates, as the data above confirms that the amount of slack in the economy is vastly greater than virtually all economists are willing to admit.

Congress Urges Murder Charges for Abortionist Douglas Karpen, Who Kills Babies Born Alive

National Cheryl Sullenger Dec 22, 2016 | 5:22PM Washington, DC

The House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives has announced that it has made a total of 15 criminal referrals based on its investigation into the underground trade in aborted baby organs and tissue. Six of the referral letters were just released late yesterday, while nine others had been previously made public. Among the new criminal referral letters issued by Select Investigative Panel Chair Marsha Blackburn were two made against Texas late-term abortionist Douglas Karpen to the U.S. Department of Justice and the Texas Attorney General’s office seeking further investigation and appropriate action. In 2012, Operation Rescue began acquiring evidence against Karpen from his former employees. That evidence included photographs depicting the bodies of two infants that were clearly in their third trimester of pregnancy, which were said to have been aborted by Karpen. Those photos were provided directly to Operation Rescue in November 2012, by the former Karpen employee who took them with her cell phone. They depicted wounds that could not have occurred while the baby was still inside the womb. Blackburn referenced those photographs in both criminal referral letters against Karpen. She quoted from witness affidavits that described how Karpen killed late-term babies who were born alive during abortions at his Houston abortion facilities at a rate of three to four per week. [Karpen] would terminate the lives of these infants, Employee #1 further alleges based on those incidents she witnessed, by any of several methods, including the following: Snipping the infant’s spinal cord with scissors, cutting the neck with Sopher forceps or similar instruments; twisting the infant’s head; using forceps or other instruments, or his finger to crush the “soft spot” of the infant’s head, or crushing it by the same means through its stomach; or inserting his finger down its throat. If the infant’s cranium was coming out first, he would usually use his index finger to puncture its head, but if it was coming out feet first, he would instead insert an instrument in the back of the infant’s head. Blackburn further addressed a 2013 Harris County Grand Jury assigned to investigate the allegations against Karpen of illegal late-term abortion and murder, which were brought by Operation Rescue in a formal complaint. That grand jury failed to return a true bill. Follow LifeNews.com on Instagram to help us share pro-life pictures. “[Karpen] was previously referred to the District Attorney of Harris County, but the investigation into the matter was deficient,” Blackburn stated. The Select Investigative Panel referenced several violations Karpen may have committed that warrant further investigation and possible prosecution, including: • Violations of Texas homicide laws. • Violation of the Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act. • Violation of the Federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act. • State and Federal violations for falsifying ultrasound results. • State and Federal violations of laws against fraudulent billing. (Medicaid fraud) • Texas Administrative Code violations for failing to properly store and log medication. • Texas Administrative Code violations for failing to have adequate medical staff, • Texas Administrative Code violations for failing to observe proper sterilization procedures and disposal practices. • Violations of Texas laws related to fraudulent concealment of criminal conduct from government authorities. “The criminal referrals of Karpen to the Department of Justice and Texas Attorney General validate our efforts over the past three years to bring this late-term abortionist to justice,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The issuance of the referrals completely repudiates the actions of Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, who committed a gross injustice by protecting Karpen from accountability. May justice finally be done!” Earlier this week, Operation Rescue reported that Anderson had failed in her bid for re-election. The new district attorney-elect notified Assistant District Attorney Sunni Mitchell that her services are no longer needed. Mitchell handled both the 2013 Karpen grand jury and the 2015 grand jury that falsely indicted pro-life journalists while protecting Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast from prosecution. Other criminal referrals made by the Select Investigative Panel include: • StemExpress is a California organ procurement company that contracted with Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses for the acquisition of aborted baby remains. The Panel issued four referrals of StemExpress for HIPAA violations, Institutional Review Board violations, profiting from the sale of aborted baby remains, destroying documents under subpoena. • University of New Mexico and Southwestern Women’s Options was previously referred to the New Mexico Attorney General for violations of the state anatomical gift act. A supplementary referral was made for failing to provide informed consent. • An Arkansas abortion facility, Little Rock Family Planning, was referred for possible violations of the law when it sent aborted baby remains to StemExpress. • DV Biologics was referred for suspected profiting from the sale of aborted baby remains and failing to collect California sales tax. (Read about this company’s connections to Hillary Clinton.) • Advanced Bioscience Resources was referred for possible illegal profiting from the sale of aborted baby remains. • A Florida abortion facility, Presidential Women’s Center, was referred for possible illegal sale of aborted baby remains. • Four Planned Parenthood organizations and an organ procurement company, Novogenix, were referred to the Department of Justice for possible violation of a federal law that prohibits the sale of aborted baby tissue for “valuable consideration.” “Operation Rescue is grateful to the Select Investigative Panel and to Chairman Marsha Blackburn for their courageous willingness to investigate the shadowy underground world of trafficking in aborted baby remains, and abuses related to illegal abortions and the murder in infants born alive during abortions. We know the Panel underwent constant attacks from the opposition, which wanted desperately to cover up these crimes,” said Newman. Of the criminal referrals, Blackburn issued the following written statement. “Speaking as a woman, I am deeply troubled by what we have learned about the mistreatment of patients at a particularly difficult and vulnerable time in their lives. They are being treated with a disregard for their best interests and their rights as patients,” said Chairman Blackburn. “Women deserve better than this. They deserve better than to face any level of deception or pressure. We have seen instances in which profit-driven procurement businesses acting in conjunction with clinics violate women’s privacy rights under HIPAA. We have seen consent forms misrepresenting to women that cures for still uncured diseases have resulted from fetal tissue. It is disturbing to see so many cases where there is barely the pretense of consent or no consent at all before the remains of a baby are taken by researchers.” Read all criminal referral letters released by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.

Facebook rolls out plans to push GMOs by labeling anti-GMO stories ‘fake’ news

Friday, December 23, 2016 by: JD Heyes

(NaturalNews) Bound and determined to continue burying real news containing facts that it doesn’t like, Facebook has announced a new partnership with ABC News and Snopes.com to filter out fake news from its coveted news feed. These “fact-checkers,” however, have all bought into the biotech industry’s bogus science that claims GMOs and glyphosate are completely safe for humans, animals and the environment. As reported by Business Insider, the social media site says it will begin fact-checking, labeling and then burying so-called “fake news” and hoaxes, after executives say the company was heavily criticized for its role in “spreading a deluge of political misinformation” during the recent U.S. presidential election. Facebook, in other words, plans to make official the censorship of non-conformist, truth-filled news reporting that it was caught doing in the months before the election. In an interview with Gizmodo, former Facebook news curators revealed that so-called “conservative” news and reporting was purposely suppressed in favor of far-Left sites that were actually reporting fake news. Censorship now official at Facebook “Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending,” one of the former curators told the site. “I believe it had a chilling effect on conservative news.” Censorship tends to do that – have a “chilling effect” on whatever angle of a story is being intentionally suppressed. Now Facebook wants to make it formal policy. According to Business Insider, this is how the new Facebook censorship program will work: The company has teamed up with a “shortlist of media organizations” that include ABC News and Snopes, part of an “international fact-checking network” that is led by Poynter, a nonprofit journalism school in St. Petersburg, Fla. Once third-party fact-checkers have determined that a story is “fake,” it will be labeled and then buried in the news feed. Officials told Business Insider that the social site will also use algorithms to determine whether a story that has been deemed to be phony is going viral. “We’ve focused our efforts on the worst of the worst, on the clear hoaxes spread by spammers for their own gain, and on engaging both our community and third party organizations,” Facebook News Feed chief Adam Mosseri said in a company blog post. Fine. As a news organization ourselves, we applaud efforts to root out phony news stories and fraudulent reporting. The problem here is that Facebook, led by a lockstep Leftist in Mark Zuckerberg, isn’t interested in making sure that only genuine news makes it to the valued news feed; he is interested in suppressing divergent opinions and inconvenient facts, especially when they are being reported by news organizations that do not fall in line with the corporate or liberal narratives. We should start calling it ‘Fakebook’ So does this mean that Facebook will soon weed out and bury fake, discredited stories from the Washington Post claiming that Russia hacked the U.S. elections in order to sway voters away from Hillary Clinton to support Donald Trump? Or perhaps the New York Times, which has reported that U.S. spy agencies have a “consensus” about this? That’s fake, because the intelligence community has no consensus on this, and in fact, intel chiefs have distanced themselves from a CIA claim that the hacking occurred. In fact, an NSA whistleblower says the Russia hacking narrative is bogus because “hard evidence points to an inside leak” instead. What about the nefarious claim by CNN that the Chinese recently took a U.S. undersea research drone because President-elect Trump took a congratulatory phone call from the president of Taiwan – a claim made with absolutely no evidence whatsoever? Or how about stories that ABC News fakes? And Snopes, which has a clear Left-wing bias? Or stories promoting GMOs, when in fact they are harmful and damaging to our food chain? There definitely is a cottage industry of click-bait phony news on the Internet, no question about it. But the so-called “mainstream media” is most guilty of spreading false stories and political hack attacks disguised as “news.” And yet those are the sources of “news” that Facebook will increasingly rely on in the coming months and years. Maybe we should begin calling the social media site “Fakebook,” because its news feed will be full of it. In the meantime, TruthWiki lays bare the bias behind “fact-checking” sites here and here. If you want a real social media experience featuring uncensored news and information, join ours here.

700 Million Androids Pre-Installed with Chinese Spyware

03:10 23.12.2016(updated 10:12 23.12.2016)

A Chinese software company called Adups, whose firmware comes pre-installed on some 700 million Android devices, has been found to be able to collect personal information from users without their knowledge or consent. Security analyst firm Kryptowire first discovered the privacy breach in November 2016. Adups data mining was revealed almost by accident by a Kryptowire employee who discovered a backdoor allowing information to be leaked. After that, antivirus manufacturer Trustlook dug deeper and the scope of the privacy violations facilitated by Adups was quickly shown to be significant. The Adups data collector was found to collect text messages, call history, and device information from phones upon which it is installed. Adups denied that the software is used to collect private user data, but was instead put in place "to identify junk text messages and calls." They then referred to the installation of it on US phones as a "mistake." The majority of Android phones that use Adups are smaller companies that only release devices in Asia. However, BLU Products (which claims to have sold 35 million devices in the Western hemisphere) and several other well-known manufacturers including Lenovo and ZTE also install Adups firmware on their smartphones. BLU announced that they will no longer use Adups firmware on their phones, switching it out for one made by Google. Lenovo, ZTE, and others have followed suit. Another endangered piece of hardware? Barnes and Noble’s NOOK Tablet 7, which, unlike a mobile phone, cannot remove its Adups firmware with a software update. Fred Argir, Barnes and Noble chief digital officer, issued a statement that Adups does not collect personal information from any of their users. He also said that the bookseller is working on a way to remove Adups from NOOK. Trustlook advises Android users to upgrade their firmware to the latest version as soon as possible if they believe their phone may have privacy-violating software such as Adups installed. Android devices typically rely on third party hardware and software, and thus are seen as more vulnerable to security breaches than their Apple counterparts. A piece of malware called "Gooligan" infected over a million Android devices in late November, putting control of the devices into the hands of hackers. Most of the compromised phones were in Asia. In August, mobile security experts found that the 900 million Android phones made with circuits from the component maker Qualcomm were highly vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Europe's future -- Merkel or Le Pen?

Pat Buchanan: 'Open borders are Eurail passes for Islamist terrorists'

Published: 4 days ago

The terrorist who hijacked a truck in Berlin and ran over and killed 12 people, maiming and wounding 48 more, in that massacre in the Christmas market has done more damage than he could imagine. If the perpetrator is the jihadist from Tunisia who had no right to be in Germany, and had been under surveillance, the bell could begin to toll not only for Angela Merkel but for the European Union. That German lassitude, and the naivete behind it, allowed this outrage and validates the grim verdict of geostrategist James Burnham in “Suicide of the West”: “Liberalism is the ideology of Western suicide.” Both the transnational elite and populist right sense the stakes involved here. As news of the barbarous atrocity spread across Europe, the reactions were instantaneous and predictable. Marine Le Pen of France’s National Front, leading candidate for the presidency in 2017, declaimed: “How many more people must die at the hands of Islamic extremists before our governments close our porous borders and stop taking in thousands of illegal immigrants?Geert Wilders, the Party for Freedom front-runner for prime minister of Holland, echoed Le Pen: “They hate and kill us. And nobody protects us. Our leaders betray us. We need a political revolution. “Islamic immigration is an invasion,” he went on, “an existential problem that will replace our people [and] erase our culture.” “These are Merkel’s dead,” tweeted Marcus Pretzell of the far-right Alternative for Germany about the victims in the Christmas mart. Nicholas Farage, who led the campaign for British secession from the EU, called the Christmas massacre “the Merkel legacy.” Like the reporting you see here? Sign up for free news alerts from WND.com, America’s independent news network. Europe’s populist right is laying this act of Islamist savagery at the feet of Merkel for her having opened Germany in 2015 to a million migrants and refugees from Syria and the Middle East wars. Before Berlin, she was already on the defensive after mobs of migrants went about molesting and raping German girls in Cologne last New Year’s Eve. Even admirers who share her belief in a Europe of open borders, that welcomes immigrants and refugees from Third World wars and despotisms, sense the gravity of Merkel’s crisis. “Germans should not let the attack on a Christmas market in Berlin undermine liberal values,” ran the headline on the Washington Post editorial Dec. 22. Alarmed, the Post went on: “What Germany cannot and must not do is … succumb to the siren song of the anti-foreigner right-wing, which has been gaining strength across Europe and moved immediately to exploit the attack ahead of the September 2017 national elections.” The New York Times delivered its customary castigation of the European populist right but, in a note of near-desperation, if not of despair, implored Europe’s liberals not to lose faith. “With each new attack, whether on a Christmas market or a mosque, the challenge to Europe to defend tolerance, inclusion, equality and reason grows more daunting. If Europe is to survive as a beacon of democratic hope in a world rent by violent divisions, it must not cede those values.” But less and less does Europe appear to be listening. Indeed, as Europe has been picking up its dead and wounded for over a decade, from terrorist attacks in Madrid, London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels, the peoples of Europe seem less interested in hearing recitals of liberal values than in learning what their governments are going to do to keep the Islamist killers out and make them safe. Salus populi suprema lex. Liberals may admonish us that all races, creeds, cultures are equal, that anyone from any continent, country or civilization can come to the West and assimilate, that discrimination against one group of immigrants in favor of another – preferring, say, Lebanese Christians to Syrian Muslims – is illiberal and undemocratic. But people don’t believe that. Europe and America have moved beyond the verities of 20th-century liberalism. The cruel experiences of the recent past, and common sense, dictate that open borders are Eurail passes for Islamist terrorists, who are anxious to come and kill us in the West. We have to deal with the world as it is, not as we would wish it to be. In our time, there has taken place, is taking place, an Islamic awakening. Of 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide, hundreds of millions accept strict Shariah law about how to deal with apostasy and infidels. Scores of millions in the Middle East wish to drive the West out of their world. Thousands are willing to depart and come to Europe to terrorize our societies. They see themselves at war with us, as their ancestors were at war with the Christian world for 1,000 years. Only liberal ideology calls for America and Europe to bring into their home countries endless numbers of migrants, without being overly concerned about who they are, whence they come or what they believe. Right-wing and anti-immigrant parties are succeeding in Europe for a simple reason. Mainstream parties are failing in the first duty of government – to protect the safety and security of the people.

England Sends Its Banned Weed Killer Paraquat to U.S, Where Demand is high in Spite of Parkinson’s Link

Friday, December 23, 2016 By Danny Hakim, New York Times

HUDDERSFIELD, England — The factory here, set amid a brick campus in a green and hilly industrial town, recently celebrated its centennial. It produces paraquat, one of the world’s most enduring weed killers — but not one that can be purchased in this part of northern England, in the rest of Britain or across the Channel in the rest of the European Union. So it will be sent to the United States, or another part of the globe that still allows paraquat to be sprayed on weeds. Paraquat has long been controversial because of its use in suicides in many parts of the world, since drinking one sip can be lethal. But now regulators in the United States are grappling with a wave of research linking paraquat to a less immediately apparent effect — Parkinson’s disease. In a recent, little noticed regulatory filing, the Environmental Protection Agency said, “There is a large body of epidemiology data on paraquat dichloride use and Parkinson’s disease.” The agency is weighing whether to continue allowing the chemical to be sprayed on American cropland, although a decision is not expected until 2018, and it is unclear how the incoming administration of Donald Trump will view the matter. In the meantime, many of the nations that ban paraquat and other chemicals whose use is contentious still allow them to be manufactured as long as they are exported to faraway fields. The Huddersfield plant is owned by Syngenta, a pesticide giant based in Switzerland, which has not allowed paraquat since 1989. Even the government of China, a nation not known for environmental regulation, said in 2012 that it would phase out paraquat “to safeguard people’s lives.” But it still allows production for export. As Europe and China move away from paraquat, its use is rebounding in the United States. That is particularly true for soybean fields, where the number of pounds used is up more than fourfold over the past decade, according to U.S. Agriculture Department data. The world’s most popular weed killer is Monsanto’s Roundup; some 220 million pounds of its active ingredient were used last year in the United States, according to the EPA. But weeds are becoming resistant to Roundup, and paraquat has been marketed as an alternative. Last year, 7 million pounds of paraquat were used in the United States, on nearly 15 million acres, Syngenta said. Paraquat is just one of scores of pesticides prohibited in Europe but sold outside it. In 2013, the European Union imposed a moratorium on a widely used group of insecticides made by Syngenta and Bayer, the German giant, that were linked to a decline in bee colonies. In 2003, the European Union banned one of the most popular weed killers in the U.S., Syngenta’s atrazine. Industry officials and academics funded by agrochemical companies often criticize Europe’s regulators for taking a precautionary approach to regulation. They frequently claim that the risks of these various chemicals are well understood. But paraquat shows how complex the question of risk can be. While the possibility of a Parkinson’s link has been cited in studies going back more than two decades, research in the past five years has intensified, including a prominent study by the National Institutes of Health and meta-analyses of a large body of research. The studies have looked at the exposure of farmers and others who spray paraquat, as well as people who live near where it is used, which can include nonagricultural settings like those around roads and rail tracks. “The data is overwhelming” linking paraquat and Parkinson’s disease, said Dr. Samuel M. Goldman, an epidemiologist in the San Francisco Veterans Affairs health system who has studied the connection. “I’m not a farmer, I don’t need to kill weeds, but I have to believe there are less dangerous options out there.” Freya Kamel, a scientist with a branch of the National Institutes of Health who has also studied the topic, said she found the breadth of the research “about as persuasive as these things can get.” “It’s not a slam dunk; it never is,” Kamel said. “But to me the weight of the evidence suggests there’s a relationship.” Personally, she added, she believes paraquat should be banned. Syngenta has long rebutted the Parkinson’s link, and by no means is paraquat seen as a sole factor in the disease. Philip A. Botham, Syngenta’s head of product safety, said, “We would never market or continue to market any chemical which we genuinely felt posed a health risk or an environmental risk.” As for studies drawing a connection between Parkinson’s and paraquat, he said, “Our view on those studies is that they are interesting — we don’t dismiss them — but they generate an interesting hypothesis which is worth exploring.” A Question of Risk Paraquat is more than 130 years old, but it wasn’t widely used as a pesticide until the middle of the 20th century. Today, though, it is used on more than 100 crops globally, including oranges, coffee and sugar cane. It gained notoriety after the U.S. government paid to have it sprayed on marijuana plants in Mexico in the 1970s, leading to concerns that paraquat-contaminated pot was being sold in the United States. When the stoner character known as the Dude referred to someone as “human paraquat” in the 1998 film “The Big Lebowski,” he was essentially calling him a buzzkill since paraquat continued to be used for years to kill marijuana plants. Determining the acute, or immediate, health risks of such chemicals is easier than assessing chronic, long-term problems. And taking away one weed killer means another is likely to replace it, with its own potential drawbacks. While paraquat’s long-term effects are debated, its acute risks are well known. Sometimes, poisoning results from poor equipment and safety practices, a problem not unusual in developing countries, though farmers have died after being accidentally exposed in developed countries, too. Burkina Faso, in Africa, once sought international regulation of the weed killer, citing research showing it accounted for a fifth of that country’s accidental pesticide poisoning cases. When ingested by humans, paraquat is often fatal. South Korea experienced a 10 percent decline in suicides after it banned paraquat in 2011, according to one study. Researchers in Taiwan have said it causes 160 deaths a year there. Isabella Blow, a well-known editor at the British magazine Tatler, died after drinking paraquat in 2007, the last year it was legal in Britain. She was not the first person in her family to die from drinking the weed killer. The Parkinson’s question is more complicated. Symptoms of the disease, such as tremors and slowed movement, stem from a loss of nerve cells in part of the brain. While the causes are not fully understood, it is typically viewed as stemming from a blend of environmental and genetic factors. Some research even draws a connection to gut bacteria. A wide variety of studies have linked paraquat and Parkinson’s, including epidemiological reviews that have looked at human disease patterns, studies involving experiments on rats, and research examining toxicity on a cellular level. Some studies point to a combination of pesticides as a risk factor, and even well water in rural areas. Paraquat and another pesticide, rotenone, which is obtained from plant roots, are the ones most frequently linked to Parkinson’s. The use of rotenone in lakes and other water supplies has been contentious. A 2011 study led by the Parkinson’s Institute and the National Institutes of Health drew on a federal survey of farmers and their spouses in Iowa and North Carolina, as well as others who handled pesticides. Those studied were 2 1/2 more likely to develop Parkinson’s if they used paraquat or rotenone. A 2012 study found that those who used paraquat, and who also had a certain genetic variation, were 11 times more likely to develop Parkinson’s, suggesting that certain people could be more at risk from exposure than others. “It’s a poison, and we really shouldn’t be using this as an herbicide in the way we do,” said Dr. Beate Ritz, a professor of epidemiology at the Fielding School of Public Health at the University of California, Los Angeles, who has studied health risks to people living near where pesticides are used. Syngenta has been known for aggressively defending its products, including engaging in a bitter feud with a scientist whose research it once underwrote. The company argues that studies implicating paraquat do not adequately consider other environmental factors or chemicals that are present. Syngenta also studied the workforce at an old British manufacturing site that produced paraquat and found a lower-than-expected rate of Parkinson’s, though its study relied on death certificates, which often underreport the disease. “I do believe paraquat is safe when it’s used appropriately,” said Botham of Syngenta. “I will, though, always as a scientist be open to any new findings.” In a filing with the EPA this year, Syngenta said it had hired Dr. Colin Berry to help lead a scientific review of the Parkinson’s issue. The review “concluded that the evidence available from epidemiological studies was fragmentary and insufficient to establish whether herbicides and paraquat in particular” increase the risk of Parkinson’s, according to Syngenta’s EPA filing. Berry, an emeritus professor at Queen Mary University of London, was at the center of high-profile civil cases in 1999 and 2000 that led to more than $1 million in payments to two of his patients who were given misdiagnoses of breast cancer and had needless double mastectomies. His hospital’s internal review, which was read in court by the judge handling one of the cases, cited “a serious and indefensible diagnosis” and raised questions of basic competency, according to accounts of the case. Berry has also studied pesticides for many years and has been visible of late as a consultant for both Syngenta and Monsanto. In an interview, he disputed the relevance of the cancer cases to his work assessing Parkinson’s, and dismissed a link between paraquat and the disease. “I think the volume of the data suggests that is unlikely,” he said. “You can’t find a consistent association there to suggest that paraquat is particularly important.” He pointed to a recent study published in Nature that highlighted genetic factors in causing Parkinson’s. But the lead author of that study, Dr. Asa Abeliovich of the Columbia University Medical Center, said in an interview that “obviously there’s a bunch of solid epidemiological studies that link paraquat to Parkinson’s disease risk, so I think there’s definitely support for that.” Abeliovich also said the paraquat studies underscored “that there are certain environmental factors that matter,” which interact “with genetic factors.” Dr. Vikram Khurana, a neurologist at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and a clinician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital who studies Parkinson’s, said the body of research drawing a link between paraquat and Parkinson’s had “converged to make a fairly convincing argument that paraquat is truly an environmental exposure that can either increase the risk of Parkinson’s disease or collaborate with other factors, including genetic factors.” Jack Housenger, director of the EPA’s pesticide programs, said, “In terms of Parkinson’s disease, there’s a lot of data out there.” “I’m not sure there’s any one study where there’s a direct link that’s been established here,” he added, “but given all the data, we’re incorporating all that in our next risk assessment.” Double Standards The business models of many chemical companies, including those based in Europe, have become predicated, in part, on keeping their products legal outside the Continent. This year, Britain has exported paraquat to Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, Uruguay and Venezuela, in addition to the United States, according to the office of Britain’s Health and Safety Executive. “This is one of the quintessential examples of double standards,” said Baskut Tuncak, a United Nations official who specializes in hazardous substances. “Paraquat is banned in the U.K. and the EU, but it’s still being used, and resulting in serious harms outside the EU where it’s being shipped.” Tuncak said he had begun examining practices allowing companies to make pesticides exclusively for use outside their borders, seeing it as a potential human rights issue. He said paraquat would be “one of the issues that I plan to examine” during an official visit to Britain next month. International efforts to regulate pesticides have been halting. Each year, government officials from around the world convene in Europe to discuss whether to add pesticides to a list of hazardous chemicals maintained as part of an international treaty called the Rotterdam Convention, a designation that creates disclosure requirements for exporting countries. A few countries, including Vietnam and Ecuador, automatically ban or restrict chemicals that are added to the list. Stark differences in national approaches are typically on full display. At a meeting last year in Rome, European regulators pushed to add atrazine, another Syngenta weed killer, to the list. But a government representative from India — which itself operates a pesticide manufacturer — was more voluble in defending atrazine than a Syngenta lobbyist who was present. The official even argued over technicalities, including how many weeks ahead of the Rome meeting supporting documents needed to be circulated. Lobbyists, too, are active at the meetings. In 2013, at a conference in Geneva, delegates debated adding paraquat to the hazardous chemical list. During a meeting on the topic, Enrique Lacs, a representative of a Latin American trade association, took the lead in speaking on behalf of the Guatemalan government delegation. Lacs has also been an adviser to Gremiagro, a trade group for pesticide producers that opposes action on paraquat. His presence, on behalf of a national delegation, angered other attendees. Lacs’s credentials to participate in the convention were eventually revoked. Guatemala was among a small group of countries that ultimately prevented paraquat from being added to the hazardous chemical list. Lacs said by email that he had simply been acting as a translator. He is now Guatemala’s deputy economics minister. Juliette Voinov Kohler, a legal and policy adviser for the governing body that oversees the Rotterdam Convention, declined to comment on the episode but said credentials were sometimes revoked, “thereby denying access to meeting premises. ”In Huddersfield, local environmentalists no longer give much thought to the Syngenta factory. Even a chemical spill last year generated little interest. Andrew Cooper, a Green Party member who serves on the local governing council, and whose district is a few miles from the plant, said activists were more worried about pollution from cars on a road abutting Syngenta’s main building on the site. “There’s no impact that we can determine on the local community,” he said. “What they produce and what goes out the door, that’s a different matter, but it’s not something we campaign on much in recent years.” He added, “It has been off our radar.”

Israel and the rising new West

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

US President Barack Obama has but a month left in office. But he has a month left. And he is using it. In the days remaining, Obama is using the full authority of his office to advance his policies with the hope of rendering permanent his mark on American policy. Domestically, Obama is working to undercut the capacity of his successor, President-elect Donald Trump, to implement his plans of expanding domestic oil and gas exploration and development. On Tuesday, Obama banned offshore drilling in large swathes of the Artic and Atlantic oceans. In foreign affairs, Obama has Israel in his crosshairs. It is now apparent that the lame duck president, bereft of any partisan restraints, intends to make good on his eight years of promises to use his last month in office to stick it to Israel at the UN. The opening act of Obama’s onslaught on Israel came on Wednesday, with State Department Spokesman John Kirby’s fatuous and unprecedented claim that Israeli communities built beyond the 1949 armistice line – the so-called settlements – are illegal. Late Wednesday, the UN suddenly announced it would hold a vote on an Egyptian resolution parroting that language, and calling for a complete halt on construction projects for Jews in the areas, including Jerusalem. The draft resolution included a call for an international governmental embrace of economic warfare against Israel. It called upon member states “to distinguish in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967.” An indication of the depth of Obama’s commitment to enabling the resolution to pass came amid reports that Secretary of State John Kerry was planning to address the Security Council ahead of the scheduled vote. In any event, following massive pressure from Israel and a statement by President-elect Donald Trump calling for Obama to veto the resolution, Egypt postponed the vote on its resolution “indefinitely.” But with or without the resolution – and there are at least two others also poised for a vote – Obama is using his remaining time to empower the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions operation aimed at destroying Israel’s economy and international position. As Anne Bayefsky reported in the Washington Examiner on Wednesday, Obama is supporting the UN budget which allocates funding toward the implementation of a UN Human Rights Council resolution promoting BDS. The resolution requires the Human Rights Council to compile a blacklist of companies worldwide with direct or indirect business ties to Israeli communities built beyond the 1949 armistice lines. Since all businesses doing business with Israeli entities have indirect or direct ties to the areas where some 750,000 Israeli live, the resolution represents a bid to conduct total war against the Israeli economy. And Obama is funding its implementation. Moreover, Obama is trying to box the Trump administration into continuing his supportive stance on the Human Rights Council. Whereas the Bush administration refused to join the inherently and incurably anti-Israel body, Obama has lavished it with legitimacy and funding. This month the administration won a new three-year term for the US on the council beginning on January 1. This means that regardless of Trump’s approach to the phony human rights body, the US is now saddled with membership for the bulk of his presidential term. One of the things operating in Israel’s favor as it seeks to undo Obama’s hostile legacy once he is gone, is that Trump’s election is part and parcel of a wide-scale change in Western politics that is fundamentally transforming the so-called “international community” that provides knee-jerk support for BDS and every other anti-Israel initiative. The term “international community,” of course, is just a grandiose name for the collective views of the Western European elites and those of their counterparts on the US coasts. And as Trump’s victory and the British decision to withdraw from the European Union indicated, the elites’ capacity to impose their views on voters is fast disappearing. The populist wave that approved Brexit and brought Trump to power is far from spent force. Next year will see general elections in Holland, France and Germany, and nationalist parties in all three countries are likely to win or at a minimum be profoundly strengthened. This means that the likelihood the EU will break apart is rising with each passing day. And the foreign policies of the separate states of Europe will be far different than their collective positions under the EU. The main cause of the swift rise of the nationalist Right throughout Western Europe is the mass Muslim migration to Europe. Profound public opposition to the deluge of migrants from Muslim states is bringing about wholesale popular rejection of the multicultural and anti-nationalist values that dictated the tone and substance of European politics for two generations. The implications of this revolutionary shift in values and its impact on European politics are enormous. And Israel stands to be one of the first beneficiaries of this transformation, if our foreign policy bureaucracy is capable of understanding what is happening. Unfortunately, actions by the Foreign Ministry this week indicate that our diplomatic bureaucrats haven’t the vaguest idea of what is happening, or why these developments can be beneficial for Israel. The Foreign Ministry announced this week that the government was boycotting a delegation of visiting European lawmakers because Kristina Winberg, a member of Sweden’s rightist Swedish Democrats party, was among its members. In recent weeks, the Foreign Ministry has managed to boycott Sweden’s entire political spectrum. Last week, the ministry announced that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had rejected Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom’s request for a meeting due to scheduling difficulties. Wallstrom richly deserves the government’s unofficial boycott. Among other things, Wallstrom blamed Israel for the massacres in Paris last November. While the Foreign Ministry used a procedural excuse to brush off Wallstrom, it threw diplomatic protocol to the seven winds when it announced that Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely’s scheduled briefing of the delegation of European lawmakers was canceled due to Winberg’s participation. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said that the Swedish Democrats party “has neo-Nazi tendencies, and therefore the Foreign Ministry decided not to include [Winberg] in the meeting with Hotovely.” Winberg’s colleagues, who included a member of Trump’s transition team, were appalled by the boycott. To protest the move, the entire delegation canceled its meeting with Hotovely. The delegation was in Israel to participate in a leadership summit in Jerusalem. Due to its position on the Sweden Democrats, the Foreign Ministry caused Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked to cancel her scheduled remarks at the conference. In other words, the Foreign Ministry adopted and implemented a comprehensive, public and undiplomatic boycott of the rightist party. It is unclear who stands behind this policy. But whoever is responsible should be subjected to a career review. The policy is as destructive to Israel’s national interests as it is unjust to the Swedish Democrats. The Swedish Democrats party is the only pro-Israel political party in Sweden. It is the only party that opposed Sweden’s recognition of “Palestine.” The Foreign Ministry’s claim that the party has “neo-Nazi tendencies” is tendentious. Earlier this month, the party took the extreme step of banning one of its own lawmakers from the party after she made an antisemitic statement. In the past it disbanded its youth wing and formed a new one amidst allegations of antisemitism. How many Nazi parties expel their members or disband their youth wings for hating Jews? The Swedish Democrats party, which is identified with the nationalist right, has built is political position around its unqualified opposition to immigration. For its opposition to immigration, the Democrats are castigated continuously as racists by their political rivals. There is every reason to believe there are Jew-haters among the party’s members. But unlike members of Wallstrom’s Social Democratic Party, Swedish Democrats don’t participate in anti-Israel demonstrations where Hezbollah and Hamas flags are prominent. Indeed, they don’t participate in anti-Israel demonstrations at all. Moreover, they are the fastest growing and largest party in Sweden. This fact makes the Foreign Ministry’s treatment of Winberg not only unjust, but deeply stupid as well. A mere decade after it won its first representation in parliament, the Swedish Democrats have been leading political polls for the past year. And the Foreign Ministry just called it a Nazi party. Sadly, it isn’t much of a surprise that the Foreign Ministry has failed to read the writing on the walls in Sweden and act appropriately. Our foreign and defense bureaucracies have a storied record of missing major developments. They are too busy talking to their bureaucratic counterparts to pay attention to what the public is saying. In Egypt for instance, no one was more surprised at then-president Hosni Mubarak’s overthrow and the concomitant rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt than the defense establishment, whose members were largely responsible for handling Israel’s bilateral relations with Mubarak. In the decade or more that preceded Mubarak’s overthrow, anyone paying attention to open source polling data of public opinion in Egypt, or to what was being said in the Egyptian media, was aware of the deep-seated and rising public frustration and disgust with Mubarak, his sons and his cronies. But since the only people that Israel’s defense establishment spoke to were Mubarak, his sons and his cronies, they were taken by complete surprise when he was overthrown and replaced with the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama will continue to be the president until 12:00 p.m. on January 20. And Israel can expect him to use this time to take the actions against Israel that he has been threatening to take for eight years. One way or another, he will exact his pound of flesh. But at 12:01 on January 20, a new era will begin. And in the coming months, as the next wave of populist right-wing parties rise to power in Europe, the “international community” that has been unanimous in its backing of the anti-Israel policies for a generation will become an altogether different body. This new era presents Israel with profound, indeed unprecedented opportunities. But if our foreign and defense bureaucrats continue to behave as though nothing has happened, we will fail to benefit from any of them. Originally published in The Jerusalem Post.

Christmas weekend storm to deliver nasty present to half of U.S.

Doyle Rice , USA TODAY 7:08 p.m. EST December 22, 2016

A potent storm will be putting a lump of coal in the stockings of travelers and residents alike in much of the western and central U.S. this Christmas weekend. The system is forecast to bring everything from a wintry mix and a blizzard to drenching rain and severe thunderstorms to a large swath of the U.S. from Friday through Sunday. Only the eastern part of the country will remain relatively tranquil. The storm will first move into the West Coast on Friday, bringing heavy rain and the potential for flash flooding in California, with heavy snowfall expected in the higher terrain of the Sierras, the National Weather Service said. Snow will also fall over the Cascades, northern Great Basin and northern Rockies. As the system pushes eastward, conditions should begin to dry out by the weekend along the West Coast, the weather service predicts. By Christmas Eve, the Rockies will see additional snow, which will spread into the Plains by Saturday evening. On Christmas Day, howling winds of up to 60 mph and heavy snow totaling up to 9 inches will likely lead to a full-fledged blizzard in portions of the Rockies and the Dakotas. Travel may become "impossible" in those areas Christmas Day, lingering into early Monday, with numerous roads, including major interstates, likely to be shut down, the Weather Channel said. "This has the potential to become a widespread and significant winter storm across the northern Plains," the National Weather Service in Bismarck, N.D., warned. The Weather Channel has named the storm Winter Storm Europa. Farther east, in the Midwest, milder air will mean rain and wet travel conditions for cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Des Moines, Iowa and Omaha, Neb., on Christmas Day. To the south, in the central and southern Plains, thunderstorms will "bring the potential for large hail and isolated tornadoes" on Christmas afternoon, AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rossio said. A few isolated, severe thunderstorms are also possible in southern and eastern Texas into Louisiana by Monday. Other than some scattered showers Friday and Saturday, most of the eastern U.S. will enjoy a calm, mild holiday weekend, though some wintry weather is possible in northern New England by Monday.

President Obama Throws Israel to the Wolves

By Joseph A. Klein —— Bio and Archives December 23, 2016

The United Nations Security Council voted Friday to approve a resolution demanding that “Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem.” It declared that the establishment of settlements by Israel has “no legal validity and constitutes a flagrant violation under international law.” The Obama administration abstained, allowing the resolution to pass. All other members of the Security Council, including the United Kingdom and France, voted for it. President Obama delivered his coup de grace in an act of spite against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He broke with the longstanding practice of both Democratic and Republican administrations to protect Israel against such one-sided resolutions that the Palestinians will use in their campaign to delegitimize Israel. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power defended the U.S. abstention as an act to save Israel from its own settlements policies that threaten the viability of a two-state solution. She pathetically reached back to a 1982 statement by then-President Ronald Reagan calling for an end to “the use of any additional land for the purpose of settlements.” In the statement quoted by Ambassador Power, President Reagan said that “the immediate adoption of a settlement freeze by Israel, more than any other action, could create the confidence needed for wider participation in these talks.” What Ms. Power left out of her reference to the Reagan quote were the repeated failures of the Palestinians to negotiate in good faith for more than 30 years since, despite Israel’s unilateral withdrawal and dismantling of all settlements in Gaza and despite its moratorium on settlement building in the West Bank during Obama’s first term in office. Samantha Power then shamelessly said that abstention rather than veto of the settlements resolution was a difficult vote “because of where it’s taking place: at the United Nations. For the simple truth is that for as long as Israel has been a member of this institution, Israel has been treated differently from other nations at the United Nations.” She said “such unequal treatment not only hurts Israel; it undermines the legitimacy of the United Nations itself.” “As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” tweeted President-elect Donald Trump Nevertheless, the Obama administration compounded the “unequal treatment” of Israel by allowing a resolution to pass that made only a glancing reference to condemning acts of terror and incitement to violence by both sides. Instead, while paying lip service to Israel’s security concerns, the resolution focused almost exclusively on Israeli settlements as “a major obstacle to the achievement of the two-State solution and a just, lasting and comprehensive peace.” The resolution did not even distinguish between the construction or expansion of arguably illegal outposts east of the Security Barrier and building within East Jerusalem, which supporters of the resolution presume will automatically be the capital of a new Palestinian state. “By treating all construction as equally problematic, the UN will paradoxically make it harder for future Palestinian, Israeli and American leaders to negotiate,” David Bernstein, President and CEO of The Jewish Council for Public Affairs, said. “It limits their room to maneuver.” Israel will likely ignore the resolution, as well it should. And starting on January 20, 2017, Israel will finally have a friend in the White House who recognizes the difference between a democratic ally and a gang of thugs pretending to be a nation state. “As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” tweeted President-elect Donald Trump. Indeed they will.

Mainstream Media & Washington Busted In Direct 'Fake News' Campaign Against American Public

By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine December 23, 2016

A series of events occurred in 2013, which when looked through the prism of present day events, shows us how the Obama administration, with the help of its propaganda arm, known as the mainstream media, are waging a brainwashing campaign against the American public. The first item from 2013 was highlighted this morning on Steve Quayle's site with a note stating "Important Flashback Reminder," leading us to a July 2013 article at Tech Dirt, which detailed the repeal of the "anti-propaganda" law earlier in October 2013. Fortunately, the government now has a chance to aim its official version of today's news at US citizens, thanks to the repeal of a so-called "anti-propaganda" law earlier this month. For decades, a so-called anti-propaganda law prevented the U.S. government's mammoth broadcasting arm from delivering programming to American audiences. But on July 2, that came silently to an end with the implementation of a new reform passed in January. The result: an unleashing of thousands of hours per week of government-funded radio and TV programs for domestic U.S. consumption in a reform initially criticized as a green light for U.S. domestic propaganda efforts. You can read the rest over at Tech Dirt, but the overall point is that as of the repealing of that law, the U.S. government was no longer blocked from deliberately feeding U.S. citizens any "fake news" they wanted to, they could legally use propaganda against Americans in the same manner they were allowed to use it against foreign countries. In October 2013, just months after the "Anti-propaganda" law was repealed, it was announced that Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos had purchased the Washington Post for $250 million. By December 2013, the Washington Post was highly criticized for not disclosing the fact that the new owner, Jeff Bezos, had secured a $600 million contract from the CIA, as disclaimers in their articles. The Institute for Public Accuracy published a well-written piece which highlights the conflict of interest of a media company owner having such ties with the CIA, yet not offering a disclaimer informing their audience of those ties in any article that references or is about the CIA. McChesney said today: "When the main shareholder in one of the very largest corporations in the world benefits from a massive contract with the CIA on the one hand, and that same billionaire owns the Washington Post on the other hand, there are serious problems. The Post is unquestionably the political paper of record in the United States, and how it covers governance sets the agenda for the balance of the news media. Citizens need to know about this conflict of interest in the columns of the Post itself." He added: "If some official enemy of the United States had a comparable situation — say the owner of the dominant newspaper in Caracas was getting $600 million in secretive contracts from the Maduro government — the Post itself would lead the howling chorus impaling that newspaper and that government for making a mockery of a free press. It is time for the Post to take a dose of its own medicine." PRESENT DAY PROPAGANDA - WASHINGTON POST & THE CIA During the 2016 presidential campaign season the Washington Post led the charge on attempting to influence the public into electing Hillary Clinton, with anti-Donald Trump propaganda written multiple times each day throughout the season, which was unsuccessful as Donald Trump ended up winning the election, thanks in large part to Independent Journalists across the Internet, countering the WaPo propaganda machine. Then it was the Washington Post once again that highlighted a shadowy organization, referring to them as experts, that highlighted over 200 Independent media sites that reported on the Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC leaked emails that Wikileaks published, calling them sites that spread "Russia Propaganda." Note- All the leaked emails have been verified as being unaltered, so what they are saying is that the "Russians" are to be blamed for Americans being told the truth, and it is Russias fault the DNC and the Clinton campaign were exposed for their corruption and collusion to help Clinton beat Bernie Sanders in the primary season, among the many revelations those leaks exposed. Rather than accurately stating Americans were influenced by hearing the truth, they claim that telling the truth is really spreading Russian propaganda. The Washington Post was so heavily criticized for quoting the shadowy organization that they were forced to add an editors note to their original propaganda story, which states in part :"One of them was PropOrNot, a group that insists on public anonymity, which issued a report identifying more than 200 websites that, in its view, wittingly or unwittingly published or echoed Russian propaganda. A number of those sites have objected to being included on PropOrNot’s list, and some of the sites, as well as others not on the list, have publicly challenged the group’s methodology and conclusions. The Post, which did not name any of the sites, does not itself vouch for the validity of PropOrNot’s findings regarding any individual media outlet...." Then once again it was the Washington Post, the media outlet where the owner has direct ties with the CIA, that suddenly publishes the first article claiming the CIA had concluded that the Russians were behind the leaked DNC/Clinton emails that Wikileaks published. WaPo quoted "anonymous" sources, offered no proof, nor evidence, just "officials, said" and like good little Washington lapdogs, the rest of the MSM ran with it. BOTTOM LINE We are witnessing a direct attack against the American public by the CIA, Washington and their propaganda arm, which is the mainstream media, with Bezos and his paper leading the pack. Washington set it up by repealing the "anti-propaganda" law which supposedly prevents the U.S. government from attempting to push "fake news" at Americans, then Bezos buys the Washington Post despite his direct ties to the CIA, and now he is pushing CIA propaganda at Americans. While the mainstream media claims to be an independent and free press, they are no better than China's media, Iran's or Russia's, they have been bought, paid for, and are owned... the MSM is state run media. That is the real reason they are attacking Alternative Media so hard right now, because we have become the true Independent Media.

Snopes.com is run by an embezzler, a hooker & a dominatrix

Posted on December 23, 2016 by Dr. Eowyn | 18 Comments

According to independent investigative journalist and former U.S. Navy officer and NSA employee Wayne Madsen, the fact-check website Snopes.com — which Facebook is using to combat so-called “fake news” — is a CIA operation. Now, thanks to a report by the UK’s Daily Mail, we know Snopes not only peddles CIA propaganda, it is a sleazy outfit, run by an embezzler, a former hooker/porn star, and a dominatrix. Reporting for Daily Mail, Dec. 21, 2016, Alana Goodman points out that Snopes.com will benefit from Facebook using the site as an arbiter of truth by determining what’s “fake news.” Now a DailyMail.com investigation has exposed Snopes.com’s sleazy underbelly. (1) Owner is an embezzler Owner and CEO David Mikkelson is accused by his former wife and Snopes‘ co-founder, Barbara Mikkelson, of embezzlementusing company money for prostitutes. The Mikkelsons founded Snopes in 1995. In 2015, their marriage ended in divorce, but both stayed on as co-owners of Snopes, which is registered under its legal name of Bardav, Inc. and were its sole board members. In the time since the couple split, David has run the company’s day-to-day operations, and authored a number of Snopes‘ “fact checks”. Despite their divorce, the Mikkelsons are embroiled in a bitter and lengthy legal dispute, accusing each other of financial impropriety. Barbara accuses David of embezzlement and “boondoggling” tax arrangements; David says Barbara took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas. In court filings, Barbara, 57, accuses David, 56, of “raiding the corporate business Bardav bank account for his personal use and attorney fees” without consulting her: Embezzling $98,000 from the company over the course of four years “which he expended upon himself and the prostitutes he hired”. Embezzling nearly $10,000 from their business accounts between April and June of 2016 to pay for trips for him and his “girlfriend” — a 24-day “personal vacation” in India this year, and his girlfriend’s plane ticket to Buenos Aires. David and his attorneys countered that the India visit was a legitimate business trip for setting up a fact-checking website in India, and to get a sense of the culture. He said he went to Buenos Aires to attend an international fact-checking conference. Snopes’ “administrative assistant” is Elyssa Young, 47, whom David Mikkelson married last month in Washington state. Young is a long-time “escort” — a euphemism for call girl or prostitute — and porn star who has worked for decades under the name “Erin O’Bryn”. Although Young lists her job as “administrative assistant at Snopes” on LinkedIn, her escort websites and Twitter accounts still appear to be active. Online reviews suggest that she was working in Las Vegas as an escort as recently as March 2015. On her escort website, Young calls herself “an elite and discreet companion” who “understands that while pleasure and passion may be explored in the bedroom, it is hardly the only place. I only accept a very limited number of new lovers because I’m only seeking long term engagements.” For those “long term engagements,” Young request “donation for my time, companionship, and entertainment” — “non-negotiable” rates of $1,200 for a minimum four hours and $5,000 for 24 hours. Although the Mikkelsons have denied that Snopes is politically partisan, David’s new wife has a background in politics. In 2004 in Hawaii, Elyssa Young ran for U.S. Congress as a Libertarian, during which she handed out ‘Re-Defeat Bush’ cards and condoms stamped with the slogan “Don’t get screwed again”. She wrote on her campaign website: “Let’s face it, I am an unlikely candidate. I fully admit that I am a courtesan.” In the end she pulled in 3% of the vote, losing the seat to Democratic incumbent Neil Abercrombie — a pal of Obama who, in 2011, admitted he couldn’t find Obama’s long-form birth certificate. (See also “Hawaii Dept. of Education can’t find Obama’s school records“) One of Snopes‘ lead fact-checkers, Kim LaCapria, is a former sex-and-fetish blogger who went by the pseudonym “Vice Vixen”. She described her blog as a lifestyle website “with a specific focus on naughtiness, sin, carnal pursuits, and general hedonism and bonne vivante-ery,” and regularly provided intimate advice and reviewed sex toys, including a vibrating wand that “drives boys mad” — “If you are doing something to your fella, and you apply this to the base of his cash-and-prizes while you carry on, he will scream and perhaps cry.” LaCapria, aka Vice Vixen, also recommended one book with the review: “How to Tell A Naked Man What To Do seems like the perfect how-to for the dominatrix-in-waiting, or any girl looking to get in touch with her domme side. Mine, I wish I could shut her up sometimes, but there you go.” In others posts, LaCapria claimed to be “addicted to smutty HP [Harry Potter] fanfic.” Describing her day-off activities on another blog, she wrote that she “played scrabble, smoked pot, and posted to Snopes. That’s what I did on my day ‘on,’ too.” David Mikkelson told the Dailymail.com that Snopes does not have a “standardized procedure” for fact-checking “since the nature of this material can vary widely” and that the process “involves multiple stages of editorial oversight, so no output is the result of a single person’s discretion.” He also said the company has no set requirements for fact-checkers because the variety of the work “would be difficult to encompass in any single blanket set of standards. Accordingly, our editorial staff is drawn from diverse backgrounds; some of them have degrees and/or professional experience in journalism, and some of them don’t.” Financial details of Snopes.com disclosed in court papers show that the website is highly profitable: In February 2016, it had gross advertising sales of $216,199 and a gross profit of $150,599.50. Snopes’ expenses include: $240,000 annual salary to David Mikkelson, in addition to $500,000 a year “draw on profits” to both David and Barbara in the divorce settlement. David is is seeking a pay rise to “2x or 3x” the $240,000, court documents show, although he was prepared to settle for $360,000. $53,640 annual salary to Brooke, Binkowski, editor of Snopes. Snopes has enabled the Mikkelsons’ accumulation of person wealth to the tune of: A $205,000 home in Las Vegas A $1,525,000 home in Calabasas, Los Angeles Two savings accounts with $3,064,993 A cash account with $81,785 A stock account with $47,588 IRAs valued at $455,101 A a baseball card collection which was not valued. To conclude, if you use Snopes for “fact-checking,” not only are you swallowing CIA and Democrat propaganda, you are contributing to the wealth of the sleazy Mikkelsons and staff.

Holiday Warning And Hope

By Hal Lindsey

For most people entering the Christmas season, first thoughts go to shopping, travel, party plans, church events, and other things that go along with and help us prepare for the celebration of Christmas. But this year, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, we have something else to think about — terror attacks. DHS released a statement saying the season brings “opportunities for violent extremists,” and they warned against “terrorist-inspired individuals” attacking holiday events in the United States this year. The State Department issued a similar warning for U.S. citizens traveling in Europe during the holidays. Christmas events make an obvious terrorist target. Primarily, they are Christian in nature. That automatically draws the hatred of radical jihadists. But just as important, Christmas-related activities are easily hit. They are what security experts call “soft targets.” This week at Ohio State, we learned again the vulnerability of people on a sidewalk. During holidays, ordinary sidewalks can be as packed as those that lined the Boston Marathon when it was bombed. People can be crammed into stores, as well. In some locations, shoppers gather by the thousands. But stores have few if any of the special protections of government buildings, or airports. The store’s goal is to get people in. They don’t want barriers to customers. Other holiday gatherings can be even more crowded. Parties, church events, and seasonal concerts place thousands of people inside soft target venues. That’s like blood in the water to a group of sharks. And yet, if we live in fear, we not only let the terrorists win, we directly disobey God. Isaiah 41:10 says, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (NKJV) Think about the identity of the Speaker. It is the God who said, “Let there be light: and there was light.” (Genesis 1:3 KJV) It is the same God who said, “I have made the earth, and created man on it. I — My hands — stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.” (Isaiah 45:12 NKJV) King David said, “His greatness is unsearchable.” (Psalms 145:3 KJV) The God who says “Fear not,” is perfect and great. His power is so complete, that Jesus said, “With God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26 KJV) That is the God Who says to you and me, “Fear not, for I am with you.” He says not to fear, then gives the perfect reason for not fearing. He is with us. The God to Whom “all things are possible” is with us. Amid a world in chaos and pain, we need not be dismayed. Why? He answers by saying, “For I am your God.” That doesn’t mean we chose Him. It means He chose us. The God who “made the earth, and created man on it” chose to identify with us as our God. And then He makes a series of promises so rich and beautiful they are beyond the greatest poet’s ability to express. Yet He says it in a few simple words. “I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” The God Whose “greatness is unsearchable” gives you and me an intimate, highly personalized promise to strengthen, help, and uphold us. It is especially comforting to know that He does the upholding. He doesn’t depend on my strength or my righteousness. In fact, He says that my righteousness is like a pile of filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6 says, “All our righteousnesses are like filthy rags.” (NKJV) A filthy rag is nothing to be clothed in — especially for an audience with the King. But that’s the best we can do on our own. So, He does something extraordinary. He provides us a wedding garment of perfect purity; a garment of His own making. (Matthew 22:10-14) He clothes us in His righteousness. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” (NKJV) Your own righteousness will not uphold you, but “the righteousness of God in Him” is perfect. That’s how He can say, “I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:13 continues the thought begun in verse 10. “For I, the Lord your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’” (NKJV) Who does the holding? He does. The Lord your God holds your right hand, and He says to you personally, “Don’t be afraid. I’ve got you. I’m holding you in the strong right hand of My righteousness.” Shopping… cooking… eating… gifts… plays… parties.… They can all be wonderful. But we also face difficulties during this season. Either way, remember why we celebrate. A child was born. He bought salvation for all who will receive it. Don’t be afraid. Let Him who “rules the world with truth and grace,” reign joyfully in your heart.

Hezbollah using U.S. weaponry in Syria: senior Israeli military officer

By Ori Lewis | TEL AVIV Wed Dec 21, 2016 | 7:50am EST

Israel has informed the United States that Lebanese Hezbollah fighters in Syria are using U.S. armored personnel carriers originally supplied to the Lebanese Army, a senior Israeli military officer said on Wednesday. The U.S. State Department said last month that the American embassy in Beirut was working to investigate images on social media purporting to show Hezbollah, which supports President Bashar al-Assad, displaying U.S. military equipment in Syria. Those images were widely reported to have been of U.S.-made M113 armored personnel carriers, which the State Department said were extremely common in the region. In an intelligence briefing to foreign reporters in Tel Aviv, the senior officer showed a photograph of military vehicles, which he said included U.S.-made armored personnel carriers (APCs), along a road. "These APCs are of the Hezbollah, while fighting in Syria, that they took from the Lebanese armed forces," he said in English, describing the guerrilla group as dominant in Lebanon. "We shared this information with other countries, including the U.S. of course, and I can even say that we recognized these specific APCs with some specific parameters that we know ... these were given to the Lebanese armed forces. It's not an assumption," said the officer, who under the rules of the briefing could not be identified by name, rank or position. Western diplomatic sources have said the APCs were delivered to the Lebanese Army by the United States as part of a program to equip that force. The officer made no comment about when the APCs would have been supplied to the Lebanese Army. The officer said Hezbollah has 8,000 fighters in Syria where more than 1,700 of the group's combatants have been killed since 2011. Israel and Hezbollah, which the officer said has 30,000 members, half of them combatants, last fought a war in 2006.

School-to-Prison Pipeline Complete — New Law Makes Schoolyard Fights a Felony

Justin Gardner December 21, 2016

On January 1, 2017, the state of Missouri will implement a public school policy sure to accelerate the descent into police state dystopia. The Hazelwood School District put out a memo to parents and guardians stating that, according to Missouri statute, fights at school or on buses will be treated as felonies — which can result in up to four years of prison, fines or probation. “Dear Parents/Guardians: We want to make you aware of a few new State Statutes that will go into effect on January 1, 2017, which may have a drastic impact on how incidents are handled in area school districts. The way the new statue reads, if a person commits the offense of an assault in the third degree this will now be classified as a Class E Felony, rather than a misdemeanor. If he or she knowingly causes physical injury to another person (hits someone or has a fight with another individual and an injury occurs) – one or both participants may be charged with a Felony.” Gone are the days when teachers broke up fights and sent the kids home, calling the parents and perhaps suspending the kid if it was a serious incident. “School Resource Officers” or local cops now arrest the kids and, if there is any perceived injury (an arbitrary judgment), will charge them with third-degree assault – treating children cooped up in school as if they are violent adults on the streets. “What does this mean for students? For example, if two students are fighting and one child is injured, the student who caused the injury may be charged with a felony. Student(s) who are caught fighting in school, bus or on school grounds may now be charged with a felony (no matter the age or grade level), if this assault is witnessed by one of the School Resource Officers/police officers (SRO) or if the SRO/local law enforcement officials have to intervene.” It doesn’t stop there. Even attempts or threats to cause harm will be treated as a Class A misdemeanor, which can bring up to a year of prison time. If the assaulted person is considered a “special victim,” a Class D felony can be imposed which can mean up to seven years in prison. The Free Thought Project has reported on numerous examples of how public schools are increasingly relying on armed cops to carry out discipline, thereby criminalizing the age-old reality of children behaving badly. This has resulted in the increasingly prevalent phenomenon known as the “school to prison pipeline.” The Arizona State Law Journal found that over the last three decades, there has been a marked shift in public schools to using law enforcement instead of school administrators and teachers for students violating school rules. Approximately 260,000 students were referred to law enforcement during the 2011-2012 school year, and about 92,000 students were arrested on school property. Unsurprisingly, these numbers affect disadvantaged minority students the most. The Center for Public Integrity (CPI) documented disturbing examples of children being subjected to law enforcement, just as a shocking video emerged of a cop brutalizing a teenage girl in the classroom for misbehaving. ”Some police actions involve alarming physical altercations, with kids subdued and handcuffed. Others may be handled without much force. But law-enforcement involvement in school discipline has routinely resulted in kids—some as young as elementary school-age—summoned to court to answer charges that they committed crimes. Frequently, charges include battery or assault in connection with schoolyard fights or disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace at school —issues that some believe should be handled by school officials, not cops.” The worst state is Virginia, with a rate of 16 students per 1,000 being referred to law enforcement. One school had a shocking 228 students, most between 11 and 14, that were referred to cops. A 12-year-old girl was charged with obstruction of justice for clenching her fist at a cop. 11-year-old Kayleb Moon-Robinson, who is autistic, was slammed to the floor for walking out of class too early, and then was charged with felony assault on a police officer and disorderly conduct. Other shocking examples include five- and six-year-olds being handcuffed, arrested and booked into jail for throwing temper tantrums. Dress code violations, tardiness, and even passing gas have all led to students being referred to law enforcement. CPI describes how early exposure to law enforcement and the “justice system” has a devastating impact on the mental health of children, and makes it more likely they will grow up to live all or part of their lives behind bars. “…prosecuting kids in court for low-level accusations like disorderly conduct and battery is actually backfiring; kids become stigmatized, develop records and often disengage from school. The risk increases that they’ll progress to more serious trouble, especially if core emotional or mental-health or learning problems go unresolved or inadequately treated.” The Arizona State Law Journal confirmed that incarceration increases delinquency and future involvement in the justice system, and “the official processing of a juvenile law violation may be the least effective means of rehabilitating juvenile offenders.” “No one should underestimate the negative consequences associated with incarcerating a juvenile, both to our society as a whole and to the youth themselves, which is the end result of the school-to-prison pipeline. Empirical research demonstrates that incarceration produces long-term detrimental effects on youth, including reinforcement of violent attitudes and behaviors; more limited educational, employment, military, and housing opportunities; an increased likelihood of not graduating from high school; mental health concerns; and increased future involvement in the criminal justice system.” By enacting their draconian new rules, the state of Missouri is completely ignoring science, instead, falling back on uniformed state agents with badges and guns – trained to confront the worst of society – to deal with misbehaving kids in school. Missouri is ignoring the proven benefits of “restorative justice.” “Thus, rather than excluding the student from the school community for misbehaving, which potentially can cause resentment, disrupt that student’s educational progress, and lead to recidivism and dropping out of school, one of the primary goals of restorative justice is to integrate the offender back into the school community as a productive member. In essence, restorative justice practices are conflict resolution tools that involve victims, offenders, and other members of the school community. Using formal and informal conferences, or “circle groups,” victims share with offenders how they have been harmed by the offender’s behavior, offenders have opportunities to apologize to the victims, and, with the help of the victims and the other members of the school community, conference participants devise remedies for the harmful behavior.” Instead of smart approaches like restorative justice, Missouri is set to plunge its children into a police state nightmare — guaranteeing a long-term rise in prison population and further destroying the mental health of the most vulnerable individuals.

Pushing Kids Into Transgenderism Is Medical Malpractice

It is sadistic to use the public school system, which holds a captive audience, to engage in a social gender identity experiment with the nation’s young people.

Socially indoctrinating young children toward accepting transgenderism is rampant today in public schools. In Washington state, public schools will begin teaching gender expression to kindergarteners in fall 2017, under newly approved health education learning standards. The gay advocacy network GLSEN received a grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control in 2011 for $1.425 million over five years to promote the LGBT agenda in public schools at taxpayers’ expense. By infiltrating the curriculum in our nation’s public schools, LGBT activists can groom the next generation of participants. Young people are questioning their gender identity at an alarming rate that seems to be increasing, and are encouraged by educators and medical professionals to experiment with gender transition. Unfortunately, experimentation can cause even more confusion. Feelings Change, Bodies Don’t The problem with taking the steps to transition physically—cross-gender hormones and surgeries—is that physical changes are likely permanent, but the feelings driving the desire may change, especially for young people. I recently received an email from a man now in his thirties that demonstrates this reality: I transitioned to female beginning in my late teens and changed my name in my early 20s, over ten years ago. But it wasn’t right for me; I feel only discontent now in the female role. I was told that my transgender feelings were permanent, immutable, physically deep-seated in my brain and could NEVER change, and that the only way I would ever find peace was to become female. The problem is, I don’t have those feelings anymore. When I began seeing a psychologist a few years ago to help overcome some childhood trauma issues, my depression and anxiety began to wane but so did my transgender feelings. So two years ago I began contemplating going back to my birth gender, and it feels right to do so. I have no doubts—I want to be male! Feelings can change. For this man, feelings that were overwhelming in his teens changed after he went to counseling to deal with childhood trauma. My story is similar. Changing my gender was an empty promise, a temporary reprieve that didn’t fix anything. After much psychological counseling, I came to see that my dream of becoming a girl had simply been an escape to cope with deep pain from childhood events. Unfortunately, the so-called earlier treatment of cross-gender hormones and surgery was destructive for my family, marriage, and career, and nearly caused me to take my own life. Ignoring Science to Push a Political Agenda Now children in Washington state will be taught starting in kindergarten about the normalcy of wanting to be the other sex. Public schools should not be the breeding ground for any sexual activism by any group at any time. The public school system is holding kids hostage as activists groom the next generation of transgender activists, despite serious harm this poses to children. For example, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina has eliminated the use of the terms “boys” and “girls,” requiring that teachers call their pupils sex-neutered terms such as “students” or “scholars.” They also require educators to keep parents in the dark about their child’s request for a different name or pronoun. The activists who push this agenda in public school studies ignore the science regarding innate sex. An August 2016 review of the scientific literature finds no definitive evidence in research to suggest that transgender people are born that way. This 143-page report from two distinguished doctors from Johns Hopkins University finds there is not enough definitive scientific evidence to suggest gay, lesbian, and transgender people are born as such. More importantly, they affirmed that innate biological sex is fixed and unchangeable. Only gender persona—appearance and behavior—can be changed. I was a kid who started cross-dressing with my grandmother at the age of four. I can tell you from first-hand knowledge that cross-dressing is a psychological indoctrination. It is sadistic to use the public school system, which holds a captive audience, to engage in a social gender identity experiment with the nation’s young people. Medical Experimentation Can Devastate People We have known changing genders leads to suicides from reports in the late 1970s that provide a telltale glimpse into the consequences of ignoring the science. Endocrinologist Dr. Charles Ihlenfeld warned about the suicides and unhappiness of transgender clients based on his experience treating more than 500 transgender patients with hormones over a six-year period at colleague Dr. Harry Benjamin’s gender clinic. Ihlenfeld observed that the gender change led to poor outcomes, and concluded that 80 percent of the patients who want to change their physical appearance this way shouldn’t do it. Ihlenfeld blew the whistle a little louder when he said, “There is too much unhappiness among people who have had the surgery. Too many of them end as suicides.” You wonder why a doctor like this, who was an insider on early gender change experiments, was ignored. Medicine has a long history of failing to properly and effectively help people who struggle with unusual emotional and psychological issues. Experimenting with surgery as treatment for psychological disorders is not new. My book, “Paper Genders,” gives a 100-year history of these kinds of failures. This includes psychologist Dr. Henry Cotton. In the early part of the 1900s, Cotton was the head of the main New Jersey state mental hospital in Trenton. He theorized that infections caused mental illness, and was zealous in his effort to cure mental illness by removing the suspected source of infection. He started with removing infected teeth. When that failed, he pulled the remaining teeth and tonsils, then moved on to removing sections of the colon, the stomach, gallbladders, and testicles and ovaries. Cotton reported a success rate of 85 percent. The New York Times lauded Cotton as a scientific genius whose investigations gave “high hope” for the future, and Cotton became famous in the United States and Europe. Desperate people brought their suffering loved ones to the Trenton hospital for the breakthrough treatment. Kept out of public view were the chilling mortality statistics: 30 to 40 percent of his surgical patients died from his so-called treatment. I find striking similarities between Cotton and the gender-change surgeons of today. The media celebrate those like Caitlyn Jenner who “bravely” change genders. Desperate people who feel they should be the opposite sex seek treatment from sympathetic surgeons, who will cut away male and female body parts, and from endocrinologists, who will inject cross-gender hormones. It sounds barbaric and crazy—and it is.

2nd Russian Diplomat Now Dead, World War 3 Approaches As Putin Makes A Stand

Posted by Elliot Bougis | Dec 21, 2016 | Breaking News

Sad to say, but, at some point, we Americans grew numb to how feckless and cowardly our leaders are. Like some national witch, Hillary Clinton cast a spell on us all that fateful day she so callously complained, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Like a poisoned apple to the mind, in fact, to the very soul of our nation, we became dangerously apathetic. Obama had already ruined the ideas of “hope” and “change,” so, in a sense, Hillary Clinton was just putting the deadly icing on the cake of how low our expectations of our leaders have become. Obviously, everyone has clay feet, so none of us really expects a political messiah in D.C. or in the White House. But there’s something wrong when almost the entire nation becomes so cynical that they expect their leaders to let them down–to leave them in the lurch. Actually, I spoke too soon. It wasn’t her “What Difference” hex that caused the real problems, it was when Hillary and Co. let four American heroes battle and ultimately die in the embassy in Benghazi. Once they survived the backlash from that waking nightmare of treason, the Democrats realized that, at this point, basically nothing really did make a difference. If they could get away with the lies, cowardice, deadly treachery of Benghazi, then they could get away with anything. Imagine if another Benghazi scenario happened tomorrow. How would you feel? How would the American people react? Your first impulse is probably to say that you’d be outraged, that the people would rise up, that Congress would “do it right this time,” but… in all honesty, I think your rage would quickly melt and the public outrage would just wash down the drain with the next news cycle. We’ve had too much beaten out of us–trampled out of our spirits–to do it all again, to put ourselves through the collective disappointment of seeing Hillary and Co. get off scot-free once again. Easier just to swallow our rage and hope Trump can keep making positive changes as an outsider and a proven patriot. Speaking of outsiders, it sometimes takes a true and literal outsider–a foreigner–to give us the perspective we need–to give us a wake-up call that we’re deaf to in our own language, so to speak. That outsider is Vladimir Putin, and that wake-up call is what is already being labeled The Russian Benghazi. As The Mirror reports: A Russian diplomat has been found dead from gunshot wounds at his home. Petr Polshikov, 56, was discovered with a bullet injury to his head at his flat in Moscow’s Balaklavsky Prospekt, according to local media. The alleged shooting came just hours after the news broke of the assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFZjfM6zR0o?t=10s  Karlov was killed by his police protection officer who screamed “Allahu Akbar” and “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria.” He was shot in the back by 22-year-old Turkish policeman Mevlut Mert Altintas in what Russia last night described as a “terrorist act”. Because it was so public, and occurred on the same day as two other episodes of Muslim violence, Karlov’s death has overshadowed Polshikov’s death. There is, however, troubling evidence that they are related.

'We got too small, too fast': Air Force chief warns America desperately needs 30,000 more active-service duty members

Air Force needs to grow from 317,00 active duty members to 350,000, chief says

General David Goldfein warns that the planned growth to 321,000 isn't enough

It would take five-to-six years and an additional $3 billion to reach that level

But ongoing efforts against ISIS have been complicated by pressures elsewhere

China is militarizing the South China Sea and has tensions with Taiwan

And Russia is backing the Syrian President, which the US opposes

By Dailymail.com Reporter Published: 00:57 EST, 22 December 2016 | Updated: 02:49 EST, 22 December 2016

The US is suffering from a dangerous shortfall in active members and needs 30,000 more on board to combat threats including Russia, China and ISIS, the Air Force chief of staff has warned. General David Goldfein says that the active duty Air Force needs to grow from 317,000 - its current size - to 350,000. It's currently planned to reach 321,000. 'We just got too small too fast and we've got to grow,' General David Goldfein, the Air Force chief of staff, told USA Today on Wednesday. 'We're at a risk level I'm not comfortable with.' It would take five-to-six years to reach the highest level of militarization recommended by Goldfein, who is currently on a five-day tour of air bases around the country. But Goldfein, who says his tour has left him concerned about the state of the US Air Force, says that the increase is needed. It would also require an additional $3 billion a year on top of its existing $151 billion budget. The US military is increasingly stretched by a troubled - and troubling world. 'It seems like every two weeks we're responding to a crisis or event around the globe,' General Carlton Everhart, commander of the Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois, said. The Air Force is currently supplying weapons and ammunition to anti-ISIS forces in Iraq and Syria. But there are forces moving outside the Middle East that could need its attention. China has increased its presence in the South China Sea, claiming international waters, militarizing artificial islands and flying nuclear bombers around Taiwan. Tensions between those two countries have been particularly high of late, since President-elect Trump broke US protocol and spoke to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. And Russia has increased its presence in the Middle East, backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who opposes both ISIS and the US-friendly Syrian rebels. Suspected hacks by Russia on the Democratic party during the election also suggest an increasingly militant attitude.

Aluminium DOES cause Alzheimer's: Expert says new findings confirm the metal plays a role in the devastating brain disease

Chris Exley is a professor in bioinorganic chemistry based at Keele University

A link between between aluminium and Alzheimer’s has existed for many years

But a lack of evidence has caused the scientific community to remain unsure

However, his new research confirms the metal plays a role in cognitive decline

By Professor Chris Exley For The Hippocratic Post Published: 04:58 EST, 19 December 2016 | Updated: 08:57 EST, 19 December 2016

A link between aluminium and Alzheimer's disease has long existed. But many scientists says there is not enough evidence to blame the metal, used by thousands for everyday purposes to cook and store food. However, Professor Chris Exley, from Keele University, says his latest research confirms it does indeed play a role in cognitive decline. Here, in a piece for medical-blogging website The Hippocratic Post, he reveals the findings from his latest study. There has been a strong link between human exposure to aluminium and the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease for half a century or more. However, without definite proof, there is still no consensus in the scientific community about the role of this known neurotoxin in this devastating brain disease. The latest research from my group, published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, makes this link even more compelling. In my view, the findings are unequivocal in their confirmation of a role for aluminium in some if not all Alzheimer’s disease. At the very least, these new results should encourage everyone and even those who have steadfastly maintained that aluminium has no role in the disease to think again. I don’t believe that is the only factor, but I think it is an important one which should be considered very seriously. When our new results are put into the context of what is already known about aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease their significance becomes overwhelming and compelling. We already know that the aluminium content of brain tissue in late-onset or sporadic Alzheimer’s disease is significantly higher than is found in age-matched controls. So, individuals who develop Alzheimer’s disease in their late sixties and older also accumulate more aluminium in their brain tissue than individuals of the same age without the disease. Even higher levels of aluminium have been found in the brains of individuals, diagnosed with an early-onset form of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease, who have experienced an unusually high exposure to aluminium through the environment or through their workplace. This means that Alzheimer’s disease has a much earlier age of onset, for example, fifties or early sixties, in individuals who have been exposed to unusually high levels of aluminium in their everyday lives. We now show that some of the highest levels of aluminium ever measured in human brain tissue are found in individuals who have died with a diagnosis of familial Alzheimer’s disease. The levels of aluminium in brain tissue from individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease are similar to those recorded in individuals who died of an aluminium-induced encephalopathy while undergoing renal dialysis. In support of our quantitative data, we have also used a recently developed and fully validated method of fluorescence microscopy to provide stunning and unequivocal images of aluminium in brain tissue from familial Alzheimer’s disease donors. Familial Alzheimer’s disease is an early-onset form of the disease with first symptoms occurring as early as 30 or 40 years of age. It is extremely rare, perhaps 2-3 per cent of all cases of Alzheimer’s disease. Its bases are genetic mutations associated with a protein called amyloid-beta, a protein which has been heavily linked with the cause of all forms of Alzheimer’s disease. Individuals with familial Alzheimer’s disease produce more amyloid beta and the onset of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease are much earlier in life. This new research may suggest that these genetic predispositions to early onset Alzheimer’s disease are linked in some way to the accumulation of aluminium in brain tissue. Ageing is the main risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease and aluminium accumulates in human brain tissue with ageing. Environmental or occupational exposure to aluminium results in higher levels of aluminium in human brain tissue and an early onset form of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease. The genetic predispositions which are used to define familial or early-onset Alzheimer’s disease also predispose individuals to higher levels of brain aluminium at a much younger age. Aluminium is accepted as a known neurotoxin, for example being the cause of dialysis encephalopathy, and its accumulation in human brain tissue at any age can only contribute to any ongoing disease state or toxicity. We should take all possible precautions to reduce the accumulation of aluminium in our brain tissue through our everyday activities and we should start to do this as early in our lives as possible.

US Public's 'Blissful Ignorance' on Foreign Affairs Threatens to 'Incite War'

15:04 19.12.2016(updated 15:05 19.12.2016

The US public's "troubling" ignorance of global affairs may finally result in unnecessary confrontation and war, political analyst Doug Wead told Sputnik. In an interview with Sputnik, political analyst Doug Wead, who served as an adviser to two American Presidents, reproached the US public for its "troubling" ignorance regarding foreign affairs, which he said may finally lead to unnecessary confrontation and war. He made the remarks after the US-based Council on Foreign Relations published its new report on the top threats to watch out for in 2017. The think-tank's ninth annual document, which is used by foreign policy professionals, assesses possible conflicts around the globe according to likelihood and impact, and makes a list from a US perspective.

The 5th major quake to strike in a 24 hour period hits Brazil: Large coronal hole facing Earth we could be in for more!

The fifth major quake to strike in a 24 hour period has hit Brazil; a mag 6.1 was recorded on the Brazil side of the Brazil Peru border. A mag 6.1 - 24km ESE of Ngulu, Micronesia was the second major quake this morning and the 4th in the last 24 hours. A tsunami warning has been released. Earlier this morning a mag 6.0 - 83km WNW of Kirakira, Solomon Islands was the third major quake to strike in 24 hours after the massive 7.9 and 6.3 in Papua New Guinea yesterday. We could be in for more as the enormous coronal hole on the Sun is now facing Earth directly. This afternoons strike is the 13th major quake of December and the 141st of 2016.

Record low temperatures hit Southern California

Posted by TW on December 19, 2016 in categories Earth

Cold and dry air streamed into parts of Southern California over the weekend, dropping temperatures to record lows. Cold air and weakest sunshine of the year will not allow maximum temperatures to warm much at all for at least the next couple of days. SoCalGas is urging customers to immediately reduce their natural gas use during this critical period to help lower the risk of possible natural gas and electricity shortages. According to NWS Los Angeles, record low temperature of -8.8 °C (16 °F) was set at Lancaster Airport on Sunday morning, December 18, breaking the previous record of -8.3 °C (17 °F) set in 1995. At Santa Maria Airport, a record low temperature of -2.7 °C (27 °F) was set on the same day, breaking the previous record of -2.2 °C (28 °F) degrees set in 1928. “The cold air mass and the weakest sunshine of the year will not allow maximum temperatures to warm much at all,” the NWS said. A moderate Santa Ana wind was seen in the cards, forecasters said, but it would still be cold. "Maximum temperatures across the area will only climb to the upper 50s to the mid 60s, or 4 to 8 degrees below normal,” the agency added. The cool and dry air mass will result in frost and freeze conditions or wind sheltered areas the next couple nights. Gusty Santa Ana are expected through at least the middle of the week, resulting in gradual warming of daytime highs. The cold air should push some winds into the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley as well as the La Canada and La Crescenta valleys. The cold front also brought snow to the Big Bear area and has created dangerous driving conditions for motorists. Southern California Gas Co. has issued a "SoCalGas Advisory" yesterday, asking customers to immediately reduce their natural gas use to help lower the risk of possible natural gas and electricity shortages. The Advisory will continue until further notice. SoCalGas urges all customers to reduce their natural gas use by: Lowering their thermostats to 20 °C (68 °F) or below Waiting a day to use natural gas appliances, and Washing clothes in cold water when possible More than 95% of Southern Californians use natural gas for home heating, and about 60% of the electricity used in California comes from power plants that run on natural gas.

George Soros and Bill Gates Exposed as the Force Behind Facebook’s New ‘Fake News’ Detector

Claire Bernish December 18, 2016

After controversy erupted over Facebook’s plan to use left-leaning, liberal fact-checking organizations to flag “disputed” news — as part of the wholly vapid and unnecessary war on “fake news” — additional information has emerged that won’t quell the public’s misgivings on the situation. Billionaire globalist George Soros is among several liberal ‘luminaries’ funding the social media platform’s latest foray into soft censorship of dissent. On Thursday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the plan to combat fake news — incidentally, an issue he wasn’t concerned about until the left establishment applied pressure — but was met with consternation and outrage from constitutional rights advocates, alternative media, and right-leaning media for the singular viewpoint of the ostensible fact-checking organizations. Indeed, Facebook’s announcement it would use third-party fact-checkers from the ‘trusted’ Poynter Institute should have sounded even louder alarm bells, as Poynter receives funding from Soros’ Open Society Foundations, Google, the Craig Newmark Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Omidyar Network, and other extreme left groups. EBay founder Pierre Omidyar has donated over $30 million to the Clintons and their charities; the Gates have given the Clinton Foundation no less than $25 million; and the loathed George Soros — who donated an unprecedented $27 million to defeat George W. Bush in 2004 — reportedly spent over $25 million on Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this election cycle. In short, these entities who will be deeming articles legitimate or “disputed” are anything but unbiased. As the Ron Paul Institute notes: “Never fear. A group of selfless and unbiased philanthropists have stepped forward to offer millions of dollars to assist these ‘fact-checkers’ in their efforts to ferret out and disappear anything they determine to be ‘fake news.’ It seems rather curious, however, that these donors are all in fact in one way or other completely beholden to Hillary Clinton and the left-interventionists of the Democratic Party.” As admittedly right-slanted Breitbart pointed out, “On Monday, just days before the announcement of the Facebook partnership, Poynter issued a press release revealing that Newmark donated $1 million to the group to fund a faculty chair in journalism ethics.” That press release states: “The gift will support a five-year program at Poynter that focuses on verification, fact-checking and accountability in journalism. It’s the largest donation Poynter’s ever received from an individual foundation. “The Newmark Chair will expand on Poynter’s teaching in journalism ethics and develop certification programs for journalists that commit to ethical decision-making practices. The faculty member will also organize an annual conference on ethics issues at Poynter and be a regular contributor to Poynter.org.” Ferreting out dis- and misinformation has little, if anything, to do with actual dis- and misinformation, and everything to do with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment’s disgust with Donald Trump and their losing election campaign. Zuckerberg’s plan will at first entail fact-checking by Politifact, Snopes, FactCheck.org, the Associated Press, and ABC News, with the option to rope more outlets into the effort in the future. But as the Ron Paul Institute reports, the bias in these groups — and their penchant for reporting false information — is astonishing: “One problem: these organizations themselves are among the biggest purveyors of real fake news! PolitiFact has a whole website dedicated to exposing the organization’s biases. The popular site Snopes is in fact run by a husband and wife out of their home in California. Neither have any background in research or investigative techniques — they just use Google to make their determinations. As for AP and ABC News — they are mainstream media outlets with no clean hands when it comes to propagating fake stories. In fact the Associated Press has a long history of coordinating with governments to produce fake news. “Political fact checking is not a science. On the contrary, more often than not it carries with it all the biases of any hyper-partisan organization.” That point should not be overlooked — because as Facebook claims to be combating ‘fake news,’ employing organizations like the Open Society Foundations, Snopes, Google, and, particularly, Politifact in the plan evince the underlying motivation to further an establishment-left agenda — not combat actual, false reports, at all. In fact, by using the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) — funded by the Poynter Institute, and thus Soros, Gates, and the others — Zuckerberg is committing to liberal bias in Facebook newsfeeds and foregoing the last shreds of open idea-sharing the platform originally claimed to embrace. Although the left often downplays the role Soros plays in global events, his alleged fingerprints in the affairs of nations from the Ukraine to Macedonia to the United States show little more than a pattern of self-interest and profiteering disguised as concern for the public interest. “Soros has earned his megafortune in part by short selling currencies and causing economic crises. He is credited with breaking the pound on September 16, 1992 in a day that became known in Britain as ‘Black Wednesday.’ He reportedly made $1.2 billion from that crisis. In 2002, he was convicted for insider trading,” Breitbart’s Aaron Klein reports. With clear favoritism for the left now on display, many conservative press organizations and alternative media outlets, whose bias largely doesn’t represent a particular ideology, have begun discussing leaving Facebook for any social media platform whose running modus operandi refuses censorship of any stripe. It would behoove the U.S. populace to recognize the war against ‘fake news’ has nothing at all to do with actual fabricated reports and everything to do with funneling thought into one, accepted frame — that of the Democratic establishment. Facebook, Soros, the Gates’, and Clintonites are trying to make acceptable the idea of spoon-feeding information, and the packaged narrative of news being somehow ‘fake’ does the job handily. But losing the choice to view competing and sometimes unpleasant viewpoints is the steepest price to pay for the convenience of not being tasked with researching items on your own — and it’s the slipperiest of slopes in an increasingly authoritarian State.

BREAKING: Congress Makes Deadly Announcement, U.S. Has Been Funding ISIS For MONTHS

December 18, 2016

Ever since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that rocked the foundation of the United States, people have been wary of any terrorist activity that goes on. It’s something that shouldn’t be taken lightly, considering that the terrorist’s main goal is to destroy anything and everything related to the country. Ever since then, anytime there is a terrorist threat or anything related to that, people immediately get concerned and want action to occur. It’s hard to blame them either. If you discovered that there was an insane group of people out there that wanted to kill you simply because you’re American, wouldn’t you want them gone? Ever since ISIS reared its ugly head about two years ago, people have called for the stoppage and destruction of this terrorist group. That is easier said than done though. It’s hard to defeat an enemy when they are being supplied with money and weapons from the country that is against them. Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard said on Twitter that the United States is funding and arming Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. The Congresswoman from Hawaii wrote on Twitter, “If you are I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail. Why does our gov get a free pass on this?” It should be noted that Gabbard is a United States army veteran and a member of the House Committees on Foreign affairs and Armed Services. She was also the member of Congress to introduce the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. While introducing the bill, she cited articles from both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal that said the United States is supporting rebels that are actually allied with an Al-Qaeda affiliate. Gabbard didn’t stop there. She relied on some of the transcripts of those Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs speeches that were released to further bolster her claim. “The CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda.” Hillary specifically said this at the speech: “We’ve got Iran with their agents in Hezbollah, and they’re being taken on by indigenous rebels but increasingly a collection of Jihadists who are funded by the Saudis, funded by the Emiratis [sic], funded by Gotter (phonetic)[sic], and you have the Turks that were very active in the beginning, but then began to be concerned by some of the development inside Syria, particularly among the northern and northeastern Kurdish population in Syria.” Hillary said that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar are funding Syrian jihadists. These are three nations that have received funding and weapons from the United States. Considering that they have received funding from the United States and then Hillary says in a speech, which she is being paid for no less, that these countries are supplying ISIS as well, these countries are selling those weapons to ISIS. “This madness must end. We must stop arming terrorists.” Gabbard’s bill would prohibit any federal agency from supporting a terrorist group or give support through other countries that would either support terrorists directly or indirectly. It’s a little unnerving that a bill had to be introduced for this to stop, but it has. Seriously it’s common sense. If you know that a country is arming terrorists with the weapons that you are selling them, you need to stop selling those weapons! What part of that did Hillary and, since she was a member of his cabinet, President Obama not understand? Obama has said that he wants to fight ISIS. It’s hard to fight against them when they are using the weapons that were sold to other countries. Not to mention that the funding that has gone to some of these nations has found its way in the pockets of these ISIS soldiers. Again, the answer seems really simple. If you cut off funding and the sale of weapons to these nations that are known to be supporters of terrorist causes, then it hurts the terrorists! Do these people not have common sense? It also makes me wonder why they didn’t stop the sale of weapons right away when they discovered that the rebels were just giving the weapons to the terrorists that they were fighting. As soon as people heard that they should have been on the phone with the weapons supplier and demanding that it be cut off immediately. However since they didn’t, this bill had to be introduced. Then again, Obama did approve an operation that was able to release 9,000 ISIS soldiers. By saying that they were going to wait until a city they were going to attack was clear of all civilians, Obama allowed an estimated 9,000 ISIS soldiers to walk out of the area that was being attacked. Those could have been 9,000 casualties that wouldn’t exist anymore. H/T: Conservative Daily Post

Experts Reveal Techniques Used by the Media to Brainwash and Control Us

Posted on December 18, 2016Natural Living By Dylan Charles

With so much vitriol flying in every direction these days about fake news, Russian propaganda, misinfo and disinfo, it’s crucial to acknowledge and understand the fact that there is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent. Many of the deliberate techniques of this form of social mind control are well-documented, having been revealed by industry insiders, experts, and content manufacturers. Explore: 4 Ways To Spot Big Pharma’s Astroturfing And Media Manipulation In the Beginning Known as the father of modern propaganda, Edward Bernays was the original pioneer of social engineering via mass media. In the early 20th century Bernays laid the foundation for cultural programming at the whole-society level by helping to transform a mostly rural agrarian based society into a homogenized culture of consumers and devout statists. “Bernays combined the work of people such as the French social psychologist Gustave Le Bon to create techniques which appeal to the subconscious emotions of the public, as opposed to engaging the public in rational and intellectual debate.” ~Steven Macmillan Trump’s First Executive Order But not the one you’re thinking of. Learn the truth here. Go to caseyresearch.com The principles he set in motion have dramatically influenced the growth of our culture, and now, having carried his torch into the 21st century, here’s what several experts on modern brainwashing, propaganda and mind control have revealed about their craft. Also See: Edward Bernays, The Father Of American Propaganda A Renowned CBS Journalists Explains ‘Astroturfing’ One of the most important things happening in our world today is the corruption of grass-roots movements and how these movements are portrayed in the media to achieve very specific social and political results. We see this at work in major ways today as dozens of seemingly organic social movements are repeatedly used to create the ongoing narrative of social chaos, racism, division, and political protest. READ: 11 Tactics Used by the Mainstream Media to Manufacture Consent for the Oligarchy Sharyl Attkisson, author and former investigative reporter with CBS News, explains the tactic known as ‘astroturfing,’ which is a scheme to fake grassroots movements a “Astroturf is a perversion of grassroots. Astroturf is when political, corporate or other special interests disguise themselves and publish blogs, start facebook and twitter accounts, publish ads, letters to the editor, or simply post comments online, to try to fool you into thinking an independent or grassroots movement is speaking.” ~ Sharyl Attkisson These methods are used to give people the impression that there is widespread support for an agenda, when, in reality, the public may not have any true interest at play. Astroturf tactics are also used to discredit or criticize those that disagree with certain agendas, using stereotypical names such as conspiracy theorist, quack, racist, and other popular catch terms. Here is a summary of astroturf tactics, as described by Attkisson: Creating of Wikipedia pages, monitored by corporations. Creating a social media presence, including Facebook and Twitter accounts, run by paid professionals. Secretly funding non-profit organizations to create third-party support and web presence. Search engine optimizing web pages such as blogs and third-party sites that support a specific agenda. Financing industry research that is deceitfully presented as independent opinion. Funding experts working on unrelated projects, while in reality creating paid consultants. Finding sympathetic news outlets to portray such groups in predictable terms. A thorough presentation on the matter by Attkisson can be seen, here: Filmmaker Tells You All about Subliminal Messaging Subliminal messaging is a staple of modern mind control, and when bombarded with such cleverly concealed information, the emotional mind can be triggered, and a person’s intellect can be subjugated in favor of base mental processes such as fear or sexual desire. Related: How TV Affects Your Brain Chemistry For The Worst Part 2 A person may not consciously realize why they start to become more attracted to certain behaviors, lifestyles or products, but the attraction is real and materializes in their personal choices. “..subliminal ads are used as a technique not only to increase sales but is also used to divert youth and involve them in such type of behaviour which is only hazardous to the consumer.” ~ (Impact of Subliminal Messaging in TV Advertisements on Consumer Behaviour – A Case Study of Youth in Kashmir Province of J&K, Blue Ocean Research Journals, source) In the 2011 documentary Programming the Nation, filmmaker and former advertising sales rep, graphic artist and digital media producer, Jeff Warrick, provides modern examples of how subliminal messages and other subconscious techniques are used in advertising and other media to reinforce cultural norms and social programs such as consumerism, health choices, the materialization of women‘s bodies, and the glorification of violence. “Could such techniques really be contributing to a variety of social, political and economic problems currently present in our culture? Such as obesity, anorexia, and other eating disorders? The ongoing war on terror? And what about the ever-increasing amounts of debt, that has tightened its grip on a growing percentage of the population?” ~Programming the Nation In the film, Warrick examines how these effective techniques have conditioned the United States public to accept certain lifestyle choices by veiled suggestion placed in ads, television programs, films and newscasts. Watch the full documentary, here: Final Thoughts The effects of decades of manipulative media can be seen in the gridlock of ideas, the overly-confrontational and divisive nature of modern discourse, and the extreme homogenization of American cities and towns, where people now look the same, buy the same things, eat the same food, and share a narrow spectrum of ideas and values. These two expert examples are but a couple among many techniques used to sway public opinion and change public behavior, but for these to be effective, the public must be remain unaware of the how the science of social programming and brainwashing are at work manipulating our lives. “As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.” ~ Specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe

A CIA-Manufactured Coup In Opposition To American Democracy Is Unfolding Right Before Our Very Eyes!

2 days ago by JayWill7497

This report by Moon of Alabama is NOT conspiracy theory: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/46056.htm  Examine it carefully. Check out the links.

The post is a documented and precise outline of a coup that is underway. The incredible lies that are being perpetrated by the media and by members of the U.S. government have as their evident objective the elimination of a Donald Trump presidency. There is no other explanation for the astonishing blatant lies for which there is not a shred of proof. Without a doubt, there is significant real proof to the contrary. Yet the coup persists and gathers steam. President Eisenhower cautioned us more than a half century ago of the threat that the military/security complex signifies to U.S. democracy. In the decades since Eisenhower’s warning, the military/security complex has grown to become more powerful than the American folks and is showing its power by overturning a presidential election. Will the coup work? In my viewpoint, ex – and current members of the U.S. government and the media wouldn’t dare to so clearly and openly engage in a coup in opposition to democracy and an elected president except if they anticipate the coup to be successful. It is an easy issue for the ruling interests to give incentives to electors to vote in another way than their states. The cost of the bribes is microscopic in comparison to the wealth and income streams that a trillion dollar annual budget gives to the military/security complex. The fake news of a Putin/Trump election-stealing plot created by unsupported accusations of present and ex – members of US intelligence, the lame-duck President Obama, and the presstitute media supply the cover for electors to break with precedent “in order to save America from a Russian stooge.” The CIA-controlled European media, the politicians in Washington’s European vassal states, NATO officials, and the brainwashed European peoples will aid the coup in opposition to Trump. The only ones chatting against the coup are the voters who elected Trump-all of whom are claimed to have been fooled by Russian fake news- the Russian government, and the 200 websites inaccurately depicted by the Washington Post and the secret organization PropOrNot as Russian agents. To put it differently, those objecting to the coup are the ones referred to by the coup leaders as those who manufactured the coup.

I really do not know that the coup will work, but browsing at the commitment so many high level individuals have made to the coup, I determine that those bringing the coup anticipate it to succeed. As a result, we should take very seriously the hope of success that those who control levers of power are displaying. Only a Counter-Coup Can Preserve American Democracy The CIA has long manufactured coups in other countries. Right now we are nearing at breakneck speed a CIA coup in the USA. When the presstitute media initially published unverifired, unsourced leaks related to unnamed CIA officials, both the FBI and the Director of Homeland Security stated that they did not accept the accusation that Trump’s election was a direct result of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election. At this point all of a sudden we have a record from the Washington Post, a rag whose honesty is in doubt and a mainstay of anti-Trump propaganda believed of being a CIA asset, that the FBI and Homeland Security are in arrangement with the anonymous leaks to the presstitutes: “FBI Director James B. Comey and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. are in agreement with a CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the White House, officials disclosed Friday, as President Obama issued a public warning to Moscow that it could face retaliation. New revelations about Comey’s position could put to rest suggestions by some lawmakers that the CIA and the FBI weren’t on the same page on Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s intentions.” “The positions of Comey and Clapper were revealed in a message that CIA Director John Brennan sent to the agency’s workforce Friday. ‘Earlier this week, I met separately with FBI [Director] James Comey and DNI Jim Clapper, and there is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature, and intent of Russian interference in our presidential election,’ Brennan said, according to U.S. officials who have seen the message.”

It hasn’t been confirmed at this time of writing by the FBI and Homeland Security. Without a doubt, please take note that the Washington Post, which is hyping this tale of intelligence agency consensus, reports: “The CIA and the FBI declined to comment on Brennan’s message or on the classified intelligence assessment that CIA officials shared with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier this month, setting off a political firestorm.” Basically, the CIA is likely to be putting words in the mouths of the other intelligence officials. Be aware also that Hillary states that Putin interfered against her because he has a grudge against her for her disturbance in his reelection by fomenting protests in opposition to him with the Western-financed Russian NGOs. If what Hillary states is accurate, then any Russian interference, for which evidence remains lacking, was directed in opposition to Hillary in order to settle a score and has nothing to do with any Russian impact over Trump or 200 Internet sites as falsely and maliciously documented by the Washington Post. All the CIA officials making statements of Russian interference, based on the Washington Post, still speak “on the condition of anonymity.” So we have a coup in opposition to the president-elect dependent solely on unverified, unsourced, anonymous statements made by the public knows not who. Rep. Davin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which has oversight over the CIA, has mentioned that neither he nor the committee have observed any proof from the CIA in support of the statements he reads in the media. He has inquired the agency to brief the Intelligence Committee on the supposed proof but has had no response. As outlined by the Washington Post, “Nunes stated: ‘We have not received any information from Intelligence Community (IC) agencies indicating that they have developed new assessments on this issue. I am alarmed that supposedly new information continues to leak to the media but has not been provided to Congress.’” Rep. Nunes statement makes it absolutely obvious that the CIA is utilizing the presstitute media to roll-out a coup in opposition to president-elect Trump. CIA director John Brennan’s audacity implies that he desires the coup to succeed. Also, he is dead meat along with Bezos, The Washington Post and the rest of the presstitute media. Trump’s pundits on the left and right and among the liberals and progressives have ridiculously played into the CIA’s hands. I attempted to pre warn them not to judge Trump by the past associations of his appointees as no change was feasible without powerful knowledgeable appointees. Those who romanticize Bernie Sanders are out to lunch. A individual as weak as Sanders demonstrated to be, totally falling apart in the face of his stolen presidential nomination by Hillary, could not potentially have prevailed over the powerful oligarchic groups that rule America. When we finally get a president-elect powerful enough to bring change from the top down, the leftwing-liberal-progressive factors join the CIA in denouncing him! If the generals Trump has announced as his appointees have been too marginalized within the military by the neoconservatives to have the ability to supply US military protection in opposition to the CIA’s coup against the president-elect, do not anticipate Donald Trump to be inaugurated as President of the United States on January 20. We are at the point that only a countercoup in opposition to the CIA and the Hillary forces can preserve American democracy. High treason is alive and well in the United States, and it is functioning in opposition to American democracy and president-elect Trump.

ISIS terrorists planning Christmas bomb attacks are arrested in Moscow and giant haul of machine guns and explosives are seized  The
 attacks were allegedly being plotted on the orders of Islamic State group  Firearms, rounds of ammunition, self-made explosive devices 
were seized  A 'large quantity of substances for making powerful explosives' was also found  Four members of the group, from ex-Soviet 
republics, were detained in Moscow 
By Will Stewart In Moscow for MailOnline Published: 10:26 EST, 15 December 2016  Updated: 14:37 EST, 15 December 2016 
A terrorist group planning 'high profile' bomb attacks in Moscow over the festive season has been smashed by the FSB security service. 
The attacks were being plotted on the orders of Islamic State group, according to the agency that Vladimir Putin once headed up. Firearms,
 rounds of ammunition, self-made explosive devices, and a 'large quantity of substances for making powerful explosives' were seized. 'The 
militants prepared the terrorist attacks upon the direct order of an emissary of the Islamic State international terrorist organization 
outlawed in Russia,' the FSB said. 'The activity of a subversive terrorist group consisting of nationals of Tajikistan and a citizen of Moldova, 
who were planning to commit a series of high-profile terrorist acts in Moscow with the use of high-power improvised explosive devices, 
has been terminated,' a spokesman added. Four members of the group, from the ex-Soviet republics, were detained in Moscow, added the 
agency, formerly part of the KGB. TV Dozhd reported the attacks were planned for the New Year holidays. Russia does not mark Christmas
 in December, but two weeks later in January under the old Orthodox calendar. The country closes down for holidays from the New Year 
until 9 January and it was during this period it is believed the attacks were scheduled. The alleged mastermind - now in Turkey - was on an
 international wanted list issued by Tajikistan, said the FSB. Russia is seen by some experts as a target for revenge attacks by terrorists
 due to its large scale military action in Syria. Members of the alleged cell who were detained are migrants to Russia, said the FSB. A Tass 
report quoted FSB director Alexander Bortnikov as saying recruiters 'deliberately use migrants for the radicalisation of citizens coming 
from former Soviet countries who failed to adapt to life in Russia.' They form 'autonomous groups for carrying out terrorist attacks'. Some 
42 terrorism-related crimes were prevented in Russia this year, Bortnikov said earlier this week. Several attempts of natives of former 
Soviet states to carry out terrorist attacks in crowded places and transport facilities were prevented in Moscow, St. Petersburg, 
Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Novgorod, he said.

Identity Politics Are Anti-American Why "people of color" is a racist term. 
December 16, 2016 David Horowitz 
 I spoke on this campus in 2001, when I was conducting a campaign against reparations for slavery because the reparations were going to
 be paid by people who had never owned slaves to people who had never been slaves. Reparations was just a left-wing scheme to isolate 
black Americans and divide the country. A little over a thousand students were in attendance. Because of protests organized by the Black 
Students Union and a radical organization called By Any Means Necessary, the university assigned 12 policemen with German shepherds 
to keep the peace.  Three university vice presidents sat in the balcony, but not one of them approached me or attempted to speak to me. 
When the event was over not a single student or student organization responsible for the threat of violence was reprimanded or put on 
probation. Barack Obama said recently that racism is in the DNA of America, and is passed on through the generations.  This statement, 
which is false, is probably the greatest libel ever uttered by an American President against his own country. Here's the reality: Slavery 
existed in Africa for a thousand years before anybody deemed it immoral. It existed at one time or another in all countries for over 3,000 
years. During all those years, nobody ever said that slavery was immoral, not Moses, not Jesus, not Aristotle. Not until Protestant white 
males -- William Wilberforce prominent among them – did so at the end of the 18th Century. In America, a slave-owner named Thomas
 Jefferson wrote into the birth certificate of a new nation the proposition that all men are equal in the eyes of God, that they have rights 
that are God-given, which include liberty and equality, that cannot be taken away by government. Within a little over a generation, at the 
cost 350,000 Union lives, slavery was abolished in America and then throughout the Western hemisphereEvery black person in this 
country owes their freedom to America. The DNA of America is liberty. And why is that?  Because America’s Constitution recognizes 
individual rights as primary, over-riding collective identities based on race, color or creedIt doesn't matter whether you are black or 
yellow, or brown, Protestant, Catholic or Jew, you are endowed by the Creator with the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 
That’s the American way. Identity politics are the anti-American way, erasing the individual in favor of the collective. They are designed to 
imprison individuals in their birth status, as in the hierarchical societies of the past, and Communist societies of modern times. Here is an 
official rationale, from a Cheka official of the time of Lenin, for the disposal of 30 million human souls: “We are not carrying out war 
against individuals. We are exterminating the bourgeoisie as a class. We are not looking for evidence or witnesses to reveal deeds or 
words against the Soviet power. The first question we ask is – to what class does he belong, what are his origins, upbringing, education or 
profession? These questions define the fate of the accused. This is the essence of the Red Terror.” Progressive identity politics fix 
individuals in racial and gender hierarchies, with so-called oppressors - white males - at the bottom. American universities are dedicated 
to this sinister agenda and have been for decades, and it is now embedded in the attitudes of the cultural elites. The University of Michigan
 spends over $100 million on so-called diversity. Yet it is not actually interested in diversity. Its actual goal is to establish a hierarchy in 
which white males and capitalist democracies are at the bottom, and people of color, whatever their individual character, deeds and 
intentions, are ranked at the top.  On this campus, Jewish students are harassed by SAFE, which is a clone of Students for Justice in 
Palestine and a front for the terrorist organization, Hamas. SAFE is a hate group whose activities support the destruction of the Jewish 
state and the murder of its Jewish citizens. This fall SAFE was permitted to erect an “Israeli apartheid wall” on campus, promulgating a 
genocidal lie against the Jewish state. The wall was erected on Rosh Hashanah, one of the Jews’ high holy days. SAFE’s action was 
anti-religious bigotry but perfectly acceptable on a progressive campus like this, since leftists regard Jews as white and Israel as a 
capitalist/imperialist state. University officials just looked the other way -- well, they didn't even look the other way; they approved it. 
Recently Black Lives Matter obstructed and terminated a campus debate by the Michigan Political Union on the resolution “Black Lives 
Matter is harmful to social relations in the United States. In shutting down the event, Black Lives Matter violated several university rules 
and should have been disciplined by university authorities. But of course, no action was taken against them because as a black group 
they are at the top of the progressive hierarchy and under the Orwellian “diversity guidelines” standard at America’s collegiate institutions
, they are a protected group. The totalitarian goal of identity politics is to force everyone into the politically correct mold. At the University
 of California, President Janet Napolitano, who was formerly Obama’s director of the Department of Homeland Security recently issued a 
warning to all professors that the following phrase was a micro-aggression and should be suppressed: “America is a land of opportunity.
” This is fascist censorship. Suppressing the thought that America is a land of opportunity is fascist. Yet it is a policy that caused not one 
resignation among the University of California’s administrative staff, or any protest from the Faculty Senate or the American Association 
of University Professors. All you have to do understand the Orwellian nature of this edict is look around and see how ordinary people rise in
 this country. Only a fool would deny that this is a land of opportunity, and only a progressive fascist would seek to suppress the idea itself. 
Napolitano also outlawed the sentence, “When I look at you, I don't see color.” Now why is that offensive to the progressive thought police?
 It’s a person saying to somebody, “I’m not prejudiced against you. I don't see your color. To me, you’re another human being. To me, you're 
equal in the eyes of God and the law.” The reason the thought police find that offensive is because they want people to be identified by color
 and by race. They want to fix everyone in the categories of their hierarchy so they can place whites, males, and American patriots of all 
colors and genders at the bottom.  The politically correct phrase “people of color” is a racist phrase designed to do just that - to enforce 
the fascist hierarchy. And the alarming reality is that now almost everybody uses it. In the first place “people of color” is not grammatical 
English. You wouldn’t say “this is a box of crayons of color,” would you? People who speak English correctly don’t speak like that. People who
speak French do. What is the purpose of using this ungrammatical phrase at all? To understand it, consider Mexico. Mexico is a country 
composed mainly of two ethnic groups -- the descendants of the Spanish conquistadors, who slaughtered the indigenous Indians; and the 
descendants of the survivors of their conquest, the indigenous Indians. But when the conquistadors and the Indians cross the American 
border, they’re all suddenly “people of color,” therefore oppressed; therefore entitled to privileges and benefits, and the enormous 
allowances that we are supposed to make for them as putative victims. Maharajahs in India are persons of color. Beheaders in Raqqa and 
Syria and Iraq are persons of color. The Japanese imperial soldiers who raped and pillaged their way through Asia are persons of color.
 Sudanese slavers are persons of color. And so are the Islamists everywhere. You wonder why liberals in this country are so sympathetic 
to Islamists who regard us as infidels - inferiors - and want to kill us? Because they are people of color. And who are not people of color? 
The only people who are not people of color are white people. In other words, white people are oppressors; white people are evil. That’s 
what the bastard phrase “people of color” really means, and why it is racist.  Do you think that if a group of white students had threatened 
violence the way the Black Students Union had over my event fifteen years ago, or had shut down a debate the way Black Lives Matter did 
recently, would get away with it? Do you think if white students had forced the university to provide 12 armed policemen with German 
shepherds to maintain peace at a university gathering, or if they broke up a scheduled debate, the university would allow that? Do you 
think the university wouldn’t put them on probation or, more likely, expel them? Why do black students get a free pass?  Because they’re 
black; because they’re persons of color, and therefore high up in the fascist hierarchy progressives have created. Black Lives Matter is a 
racist group, which has declared war on police in this country, instigated the deaths of brave public servants, including one in this state 
this last week. Black Lives Matter is responsible for the murders of scores of black people but this only leads to invitations to the White 
House by President Obama, who is himself a progressive racist. If you saw a copy of the Detroit Free Press today, its front page was covered 
with photos of firefighters and policemen killed in the line of duty. They were mainly minorities and black. During the last year of Black Lives
 Matter riots, wherever police officers were killed as a result of their instigations r -  whether the city was Dallas or New Orleans - the chiefs
 of police were black.  By stoking the fires of anti-white racism, what the left has done is to handcuff the blue shield that protects minorities 
in high crime areas from predators. The real goal of Black Lives Matter is to keep a section of the black population from joining the country 
to which they owe their freedom. It’s disgraceful, and it’s racist. But you can't say this, can you?  Not on this campus without inviting 
retribution.  Everybody understands this. On this campus – and virtually all campuses – students are intimidated from challenging an 
orthodoxy that is repressive and racist. The greatest scandal in our country is the fact that our schools are repressive institutions that 
stifle free speech and free thought. It also is the greatest threat to our future. The hope for us is the fact that we’ve reached a point in this 
country where Americans can honestly say “When I look at you, I don’t see color.” The ideas of individual freedom and individual 
accountability are still alive in America. Far from being racists, as the fascist narrative proposes, Americans are generally the most
 tolerant people on the planet, certainly in comparison to any other country with large minority communities. William H. Frey of the 
Brookings Institution cites these remarkable statistics affirming this reality: “Sociologists have traditionally viewed multiracial marriage 
as a benchmark for the ultimate assimilation of a particular group into society. Black-white marriages were still illegal in 16 states until 
1967. And a 1958 Gallup poll found that only 4% of Americans approved of black-white marriages. Today that number is 87%. In 1960, of all 
marriages by blacks only 1.7% were black-white. Today it’s 12% and rising.”4 Orlando Patterson is a renowned liberal Harvard sociologist 
with award-winning works on the study of slavery and race. Patterson is also black, but in his judgment, America “is the least racist 
white-majority society in the world; has a better record of legal protections of minorities than any other society, white or black; [and] offers 
more opportunities to greater numbers of black persons than any other society, including those of Africa.” You hear leftists say that
 America is a white supremacist nation. People who say this belong in mental institutions. The Democratic Party in its official 2016 platform 
claims that there is “systemic racism” in America that has to be rooted out. What in the world is wrong with them? In part, it is their inability 
to understand statistics. According to the left, since blacks are only 13 percent of the population but 37 percent of the prison population, 
there’s systemic racism putting them there. But that's not the way to read statistics. The baseline measure is not blacks’ percentage in the 
population but the percentage of blacks involved in criminal activities. While it’s true that blacks are only 13 percent of the population, they
 commit 40 percent of the violent crimes, and fifty percent of the homicides. So the fact that they make up the 37% of the prison population 
should be no surprise, nor cause to supposed discrimination is responsible for their incarceration. The genius of America lies in the fact 
that our Constitution enjoins us to judge people as individuals, on their merits. We don’t judge them by their race (unless we are leftists), 
and we don't judge them by their gender. The American idea that we try to live up to is that everybody is equal before the law. Everybody 
deserves to be judged by who they are and what they have done, not by their skin color or gender. That is the idea that divides our country 
as we move into the Trump era. It is the idea on which this country will stand or fall depending on which side in this battle prevails.

Black Lives Matter: We Saw It Coming, Now Here’s What’s Coming Next 
by Lee Stranahan2 Jan 2016 
Breitbart News has given #BlackLivesMatter more detailed, deep, and honest coverage than any other media outlet on the planet in 2015,
 and for good reason. From covering every major protest they did to exposing the cop killer that the group worships to revealing the 
secret funder behind the movement to Milo Yiannopoulos’s complete shredding of activist Shaun King, Breitbart News has been the go-to 
source for original reporting on Black Lives Matter. Easy. We saw it coming. Not everyone liked what we saw either. In August 2012, the 
magazine American Conservative did an article on the film Occupy Unmasked. That film was directed by Breitbart News Executive 
Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and featured people like Andrew Breitbart, Brandon Darby, and myself exposing the Occupy Wall Street 
movement for what it was — a socialist, Obama-inspired activist movement. We pointed out that Occupy was the latest incarnation of the 
far-left, anti-American protest movements that dates back to the 1960s’ Students for a Democratic Society and Black Panthers. We also 
said that the next step in the evolution of Occupy Wall Street would be race-based. American Conservative took the film to task for using the
 term “race war” to describe what we saw as the next phase of the Occupy movement. Remember, Occupy Unmasked came out about a year
 before three self-described queer black women started Black Lives Matter in July 2013. In 2012, Anita MonCrief was mocked by American 
Conservative when she defended her use of the term “race war” in Occupy Unmasked by saying: But seriously, that’s why you have Barack 
Obama out there saying if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin. … they want black people running around in hoodies protesting in the
 streets. That’s what he’s looking for. … He wants us divided, and he wants us to fight in the streets, so they can basically keep us down. 
MonCrief said this two years before the hoodie-wearing thugs burned down Ferguson, before they looted and set fire to Baltimore, before 
they shut down Bernie Sanders at NetRoots nation, and before they shut down Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile” on the busiest shopping day of 
the year. The assertion that Occupy Wall Street would morph into Black Lives Matter wasn’t a lucky guess. MonCrief, Darby, and I are all form
er leftists with professional organizational experience. Anita was a whistleblower who worked for ACORN, Darby was a cofounder of 
Common Ground in New Orleans, and I did work for MoveOn.org and Brave New Films. Because we understand the tactics and the players, 
it was clear to us that the Occupy movement and its focus on class had failed to resonate with a large enough segment of the American 
people. We knew that the logical next step was to head back to the 1960s’ playbook of trying to tear down America by creating as deep a 
racial rift as possible. With Barack Obama in the White House and Eric Holder running the Department of Justice, the stage was set for the 
next iteration of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Black Lives Matter was the new Occupy. We also saw that community organizers were 
working on developing a new movement based on young black people in the wake of George Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict in the Trayvon
 Martin shooting case. As I wrote at Breitbart News in July 2013, the takeover of the Florida statehouse by the group Dream 
Defenders was a “magnet for young people. The long-term goal is straight forward and explicit: the 2014 vote. Once in the Capitol, the Dream 
Defenders are giving the enthusiastic participants organizer training, right in the governor’s office.” With two generations of educators, 
media, and legal experts all schooled in New Left political correctness by America’s leading universities, the Black Lives Matter movement 
has been essentially immune to criticism. The result has left universities, businesses, and police departments defenseless — intellectually
 and physically — against Black Lives Matter. There’s been a practical cost as well. We’ve seen businesses burned to the ground in 
Ferguson and Baltimore. We’ve seen other businesses shut down at the Mall of America and on Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile.” We’ve seen 
the murder rate spike in cities across the country as a result of the “Ferguson Effect” that has caused police officers to pull back from 
enforcing the law in the face of unrelenting hostility and scrutiny. We’ve seen universities from coast-to-coast bullied into staff firings and
 policy changes that were meant to only aid black students. These college uprisings have been accompanied by a fierce hatred of free 
speech; and when combined with the bold aggressiveness of multicultural and feminist Social Justice Warriors, they’ve created an educational 
environment that is openly hostile to white students and faculty. With the next presidential election only 11 months away, conservatives and 
Republicans would be making a huge mistake to ignore the Black Lives Matter movement. At the close of 2015, the pot is getting ready to boil over. 
The decision not to prosecute Cleveland police officers in the shooting death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, the ongoing anger in Minneapolis over 
the death of Jamar Clark, and two recent Chicago police shootings all create an atmosphere where even angier protests are in the works. Already, 
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his Democrat machine regard Black Lives Matter activists as an existential threat. The engine that 
drives the anger is the mainstream media, which has done nothing to seriously vet the Black Lives Matter movement. Much of the anger 
is caused by the inaccurate reporting that consistently vilifies the police and leaves out key details about the shooting victims. This has 
led to fables such as “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” which have continued to be amplified and repeated by Black Lives Matter protesters long 
after they have been debunked. In fact, one of the key characteristics of the Black Lives Matter movement and the mainstream media’s 
reporting on it is a naked antipathy for facts. Both in real life and on social media like Twitter, leading Black Lives Matter activists are 
known for shutting down the speech of dissenting opinions and literally blockinganyone who disagrees with them. The result has been a 
hermetically sealed activist movement that is angry and ignorant, with a hairtrigger temper and a long list of grievances that have no 
factual basis. Worse, their set of crazed demands have been granted time and 
again by officials who are too scared to speak out for fear of being branded racists. Like spoiled children, none of this appeasement has 
done anything to quell the protesters’ fury. Every time that politicians or university administrators have given into the outrageous, entitled 
Black Lives Matter mob, they’ve learned that feeding that monster has only given it more power to make more demands. In the face of all 
this feckless kowtowing, no wonder the blunt and in-your-face style of billionaire Donald Trump has hit home for so many Americans. Trump
 – like Ronald Reagan in the 1960s – seems to be one of the few people in public life willing to tell Black Lives Matter protesters to sit down, 
shut up, and stop taking the loser road of self-victimization. This is one of the reasons that Donald Trump, more than any other political 
candidate on the scene right now, has incurred so much of the wrath and anger of Black Lives Matter. They are keenly aware that he simply 
will not play their game. The other current frontrunner for the Republican nomination is Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has already demonstrated
that he is no cupcake either. Should either Cruz or Trump be the nominee, expect Black Lives Matter’s army to take to the streets and try to 
shut them down at every opportunity. For that reason, the current political season is set to be even more divisive than either of the last two 
election cycles, which had already set a very high bar for vitriol. As the newest incarnation of the activist Left, Black Lives Matter will not back 
down or rest until it is either stopped by somone gutsy enough to call them out or until it gets what it wants: a bloody revolution leading to a 
socialist/anarchist America. The one thing the left has not counted on, however, is a dogged, active conservative media culture that can
 bring real information straight to the American people without being filtered by Black Lives Matter’s journalism school comrades. We’re 
not about to let Black Lives Matter or any leftist revolutionary movement destroy America without making sure they’re fully revealed for 
what they are. In 2016, we’ll be doing here at Breitbart News what the mainstream media will never do: vetting and exposing the real Black 
Lives Matter movement. Stay tuned.

Israelis welcome David Friedman as Trump’s Ambassador pick 
Arutz Sheva Staff, 17/12/16 22:34 
New Israel Ambassador says embassy move can be done 'in a day.' costs zero taxpayer dollars. Israelis today welcomed President-Elect 
Donald Trump’s choice for Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, and are encouraged by his first statement that he will work in his new post
 “from the U.S. embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.” “As Israelis, we are delighted to welcome Mr. Friedman as the new US 
Ambassador to Israel,” said Marc Zell, Co-Chairman of Republicans Overseas Israel (ROI). “Especially since he made it clear, at our event in 
October, that he and the Trump Administration will move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.” “This year in Jerusalem, Israel!” added Zell. “Mr. 
Trump and Mr. Friedman can move the US Embassy to Jerusalem with zero effort and zero US taxpayer dollars,” said Zell. “Here’s how: First, 
the US law on the books, passed under President Bill Clinton, states that America must move its Embassy to Jerusalem. Every 6 months 
since that law was passed, each President – most recently Barack Obama just a few days ago – signed a waiver to, in effect, override US law.”
 “All Mr. Trump has to do, in less than six months, is nothing. The US law, which is in effect now, will not be overridden, and the US Embassy 
can be moved to Jerusalem the next day.” “And it will cost zero US taxpayer dollars,” added Zell. “All they need to do is change the sign on the
US Consulate in Jerusalem to say ‘US Embassy.’ I know many Israelis who world gladly sponsor that sign; myself included.” David Friedman
 was the guest of Republicans Overseas Israel at a rally in Jerusalem a week before the 2016 US election. At that rally, Mr. Friedman and Mr. 
Zell shared a stage, and Mr. Friedman reiterated America’s strong commitment, under a Trump Administration, to me the US Embassy to
 Jerusalem. “Mr. Friedman, we look forward to working with you from your new office at the US Embassy in Jerusalem,” said Zell.

Flashback: Judge Napolitano Says It Was The NSA, Not The Russians Who Hacked DNC (VIDEO)
Cristina Laila Dec 12th, 2016 3:35 pm
Back in August, Judge Napolitano made some comments regarding the DNC hack. On his show “Judge Napolitano’s Chambers”, Judge Nap shared his own thoughts on the leaked DNC emails: The DNC and Clinton campaign decided to blame of all people, the Russians! They accused Vlademir Putin of being in cahoots with Donald Trump and having his intelligence services hack the DNC to expose e-mails to make Mrs. Clinton look bad and thereby benefit Donald Trump. But
the Russians had nothing to do with it. ….a former high ranking NSA official who developed a software that the NSA now uses said the NSA hacked the DNC…the members of the intelligence community simply do not want Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States because she doesn’t know how to handle State secrets. The left has been beating this ‘Russian drum’ for several months now. Russian hacking is one of the many false narratives that the left has been pushing in order to deny President Elect Trump his fully earned legitimacy. In order to keep the Marxist agenda alive, the left must continue to foment civil unrest and division. The leftists need to get used to the new Republican party because the days of capitulating are over.

Congresswoman Says US Is Arming ISIS, Introduces Bill to Stop It
(ANTIMEDIA)
Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has broken free of the corporate media’s narrative by accusing the United States of funding and arming terror groups al-Qaeda and ISIS. “If you or I gave money, weapons or support to al-Qaeda or ISIS, we would be thrown in jail,” Gabbard tweeted on Saturday. Most importantly, however, is her introduction of the “Stop Arming Terrorists Act,” which she presented last Thursday. In her presentation of the bill, Gabbard cited prominent publications such as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal to show that the rebels the U.S. is supporting in Syria are aligned with al-Nusra (which is essentially al-Qaeda in Syria). She is co-sponsoring the bill with Rep. Thomas Massie, who says the bill “would prohibit the U.S. government from using American taxpayer dollars to provide funding, weapons, training, and intelligence support to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, or to countries who are providing direct or indirect support to those same groups. These concerns are not conjecturesthey can be verified by none other than suspected war criminal Tony Blair. A think tank founded by the former U.K. Prime Minister released a report in 2015 that concluded it was ultimately pointless to make a distinction between the various rebel groups on the ground since the majority of these groups share ISIS’s core belief system (and would impose Sharia law if they came into power). “The CIA has also been funneling weapons and money through Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and others who provide direct and indirect support to groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda,” Gabbard stated on the House floor last week. She went into more detail: “The CIA has long been supporting a group called Fursan al Haqq, providing them with salaries, weapons, and support, including surface to air missiles.  This group is cooperating with and fighting alongside an al-Qaeda affiliated group trying to overthrow the Syrian government. The Levant Front is another so-called moderate umbrella group of Syrian opposition fighters. Over the past year, the United States has been working with Turkey to give this group intelligence support and other forms of military assistance. This group has joined forces with al-Qaeda’s offshoot group in Syria. “This madness must end. We must stop arming terrorists. The Government must end this hypocrisy and abide by the same laws that apply to its’ citizens.” Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration are well aware of the support the Gulf states have provided to ISIS. The bill would prohibit any federal agency from supporting a terrorist group or funneling support through other countries that directly or indirectly support terror groups. It is also co-sponsored by lawmakers Peter Welch, Barbara Lee, and Trump ally Dana Rohrabacher.

Report: Migrant-Heavy French Suburbs No-Go Zones for Women
by Virginia Hale13 Dec 2016
Women are invisible in public spaces and are unwelcome in cafés and bars in France’s migrant-heavy suburbs, a shocking report broadcast on France 2 last week revealed. Reporting from Saint-Denis, a commune where 36 per cent of residents were born overseas, journalist Caroline Sinz narrates: “The café terraces and the streets have something in common: women seem to have been erased. In some neighborhoods, men occupy public places and women suffer.” Footage taken with a hidden camera captured how patrons react when women entered a café in the area. Two activists are shown walking into the venue, on the pretext they’re looking for a friend, but are told “It’s best to wait outside” by a customer, while another tells the women that “in this café, there is no diversity”. The manager, asked by the activists to imagine he wants to bring a cousin or a female friend to the venue, explains that his cousin would be at home, adding “She does what she wants but she does not come here with me”. “In the café there is no mixing. We are in Sevran [Saint-Denis], we are not in Paris. In 93 [Saint-Denis] it’s a different mentality — it’s like back home”, he tells the women. Brigade of Mothers activists, who speak out against Islamic extremism, told Ms Sinz that conservative Muslim men took hold of heavily migrant suburbs in France following urban riots in 2005. Routinely threatened for opposing religious fundamentalism, the women decide to stop the interview when someone stops the car, to watch them. The France 2 journalist then travels to a neighbourhood in Lyon, where the streets are apparently shown to be occupied almost solely by Muslim men. A young, white woman who works as a childminder says she wouldn’t dream of wearing a skirt or make-up outside in the area, and that she does her best to go unnoticed. Asked why, she tells the programme: “Simply, we are afraid”. Secretary of State for Digital Affairs and Innovation, Axelle Lemaire, said the
newscast shows “intolerable” examples of “discrimination against women”. On Sunday night Labour Minister Eric Woerth said scenes uncovered in the report “plant a dagger in the heart of the Republic”, and urged new Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve to take action. Speaking on the decision to author the report, Ms Sinz said she felt driven “to break the law of silence” surrounding women in public spaces in certain areas of France. The biggest obstacle to creating the piece, she revealed, was finding women who would agree to be filmed voicing their concerns. The France 2 journalist told franceinfo: “They are afraid, they have already spoken out in many cities, and were insulted and assaulted. So now to avoid threats, and being put under pressure, they censor themselves and keep quiet.”

Virgil: The Deep State vs. Donald Trump
by Virgil12 Dec 2016
1. The War Against Trump Do the Democrats want Donald Trump to become the 45th president?  Of course not.  And how about the Democrats’ handmaiden, the Main Stream Media?  Do they want Trump in the White House?  Of course not.  And how ‘bout all the other affluent residents of the Washington “swamp,” which Trump has pledged to drain—do you think any of them want Trump?  Of course not.  Together, these anti-Trump constituencies help form what has been called the Deep State, which is a real and serious thing, and which we will explore further in a moment. Yet first, we can take a look at the latest news, because let’s not kid ourselves: These anti-Trump constituencies might have lost the 2016 presidential election at the ballot box, but they don’t intend to lose their power.  And to that end, they have real clout, and they are using it. In particular, wily in the ways of Washington, the anti-Trumpers are operating behind the scenes, using their well-greased legal and political machinery to block the President-elect, or at least to discredit and de-legitimize him, such that his presidency is crippled.  And as a part of that backroom effort, the MSM is always ready with a supportive, momentum-building headline or two—or two thousand. We all remember the anti-Trump protests that immediately erupted after the electionsome of them, it would seem, funded by George Soros and his ilk. But such “guerrilla theater” in the streets was just an overture; the real battle, today, is in the suites. So on Saturday, December 10, Sen. Harry Reid, the outgoing leader of the Senate Democrats, helped set the new anti-Trump agenda in an appearance on MSNBC; hence this headline: “Reid: Russian Involvement In Election ‘A Hanging Chad 1,000 Times Over,’ Trump ‘Lost the Election.’”  The words “hanging chad,” of course, are a reference to the 2000 presidential election—that being another time when the Democrats lost and responded by seeking to derail the victor, Republican George W. Bush. Today, the looming flashpoint, of course, is the December 19 convening of the electoral collegeNormally, these sessions in the 50 states are just a formality, in which the 538 electors ratify the candidate who won the most electoral votes as the next president.  And since Trump won 306 electoral votes in November, a clear majority, there should be no doubt as to who will be inaugurated on January 20—but maybe there is. Yes, we must ask: What will actually happen on the 19th of this month? For weeks now, Harvard Law School professor Lawrence Lessig has been agitating to overturn the presidential election results.  Back on November 24, he wrote in The Washington Post that the electoral college should meet and vote Hillary Clinton into the White House. Since then, Lessig has helped to form a group, HamiltonElectors.com, aimed at encouraging “faithless electors,” of which there have been a few over the years, to be faithless, now, in record numbers.  Today, Lessig’s website says merely that it wants the electors to break from Trump and vote for a “qualified Republican alternative.” But of course, in such a chaotic situation, if the electors feel free to break faith with their commitment to Trump, anything could happen.  And Lessig himself is just as much of a Democrat as ever and so, too, we can assume, are his financial backers.  (Interestingly, the site is rather coy about the identity of its funders.) As the Lessig site declares, “Together We Can Stop Trump.”  Yes, that’s one goal, and yet it’s also safe to assume that if Lessig & Co. get what they really want, then Hillary will become the 45th president. And in fact, one Republican elector, Christopher Suprun of Texas, has already declared that he won’t vote for Trump next week.  And guess what: Suprun has become a hero to The New York Times and the rest of the MSM. So in the meantime, for the next week or so, the anti-Trump goal is simply to encourage chaos because from their point of view, only good things could happen.  And here, once again, the always dutiful Politico is happy to help; hence this trio of headlines, which are just a sampling: “Rogue electors brief Clinton camp on anti-Trump plan,” “Washington state presidential electors file third lawsuit in anti-Trump effort,” and “Dem congressman: Electoral College has ‘right’ to weigh Russian hacking.” And just on December 12 came the news—or perhaps we should we put “news” in quotes, since it’s just a press release—that the Hillary Clinton campaign wants the electoral college to be “briefed” on the Russia hacking allegations—which presumably means rehashing all the news stories.  In other words, the Clinton campaign wants yet another chance to rehash the same suppositions and suspicions, as opposed to actual facts, of which there seem to be none.  Again, the mission is simple: throw sand in the gears of the constitutional machinery. Meanwhile, others are joining the anti-Trump effort.  For example, here’s another one of CNN’s contributions to the anti-Trump cause, focused on the words of Robert Baer, who made a name for himself as a critic of George W. Bush in the ‘00s: “Ex-CIA operative: We may need a new vote.” There’s nothing in the Constitution, of course, about a presidential-election do-over, and so there’s zero precedent for any such national re-vote, and yet, as we have seen, the minimum goal of the anti-Trump forces is to sow massive confusion. And in the wake of such confusion, what if on December 19 a few electors were to suggest, say, a delay in the vote of the electoral college?  Once again, this is all highly hypothetical, but it’s a safe bet that somewhere, some gang of law professors is feverishly writing a brief declaring that such action is not only desirable, but also fully legal and constitutional.  And so now, if they can only find a friendly judge Still, in the end, it’s hard for Virgil to believe that these machinations to stop the electoral college from voting for Trump on the 19th will be successful. And so, in the event of an actual President Trump, the anti-Trumpers have their Plan B.  And that is this: The anti-Trumpers will systematically defame and degrade the 45th president with an eye toward paralyzing his effectiveness in office and hopefully making him a one-termer—or less. Whoa, the reader might be saying.  Less than a one-termer?  Really?  Yes, that’s the hope of hardcore anti-Trumpers, such as David Brooks of The New York Times, who wrote on November 11 that Trump will “probably resign or be impeached within a year.” That’s the level of hatred that the elite harbors for Trump. So in this coming post-campaign campaign, the anti-Trumpers will start as they started with George W. Bush, 16 years ago: The new Republican president lost the popular vote, he has no mandate, and no true legitimacy in office. After that, the anti-Trumpers will advance their next theme: the purported “Russia Connection.”  That was a common enough theme during the 2016 election campaign, but the opening gun in the renewed effort was fired on December 9, when The Washington Post headlined, “Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House.” As the Post put it: The CIA has concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency, rather than just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system, according to officials briefed on the matter. That’s rather an incendiary accusation, eh?—that the Russians actively plotted to interfere in an American presidential election.  (One wonders whatever happened to Hillary Clinton’s 2009 “re-set” of relations with Russia.) We can note that the evidence cited in the Post story is thin to non-existent; we must trust the newspaper when it quotes an unnamed source described only as “a senior U.S. official briefed on an intelligence presentation made to U.S. senators,” saying: It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected.  . . . That’s the consensus view. One’s first reaction is to say, “Gee, it certainly is interesting that a ‘secret CIA assessment’ found its way on to the front page of the Post.”  Obviously, the anti-Trump forces have a lot of little helpers in the government, leaking like crazy, and in the MSM, lapping up the leaks. That’s the Deep State in action, and we’ll get to that shortly. And the second reaction is to echo what the office of the President-elect said in response: “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.” Indeed, one can also add that the same “intel community” has been so highly politicized in the Obama years that it has also told us, with a straight face, that “climate change” is a dire national security threat, perhaps the most dire.  In fact, Secretary of State John Kerry has made that assertion at least 22 times.  And
we’re supposed to trust these people? Interestingly, even as the Russia-did-it storyline played out, actual evidence, let alone proof, that the Russians aimed to tilt the election was, well, non-existent.  The New York Times, which never misses a chance to whack Trump, splashed the story on its front page, again, on December 12, but even it had to admit that there was no actual evidence that the Russians were trying to help Trump—it’s simply their new considered opinion: The C.I.A.’s conclusion does not appear to be the product of specific new intelligence obtained since the election, several American officials, including some who had read the agency’s briefing, said on Sunday.  Rather, it was an analysis of what many believe is overwhelming circumstantial evidence—evidence that others feel does not support firm judgments—that the Russians put a thumb on the scale for Mr. Trump, and got their desired outcome.  [emphasis added] Assuming that the Times is accurately reflecting the consensus opinion inside the CIA, we are left to wonder what could be motivating the agency to put forth such a strong, but evidence-less, opinion.  And to help answer that question, we might turn to a December 10 story in The Daily Beast, reporting on the anti-Trump angst inside the agency: “There’s a real revolt going on,” said a former intelligence officer of the CIA leaks, citing discussions with former colleagues. “They don’t like [National Security Adviser nominee Michael] Flynn and they hate Trump’s guts.  [emphasis added] Is that really the explanation for all this leaking?  They “hate Trump’s guts”?  And for that reason, CIA personnel are willing to twist the intelligence and traduce the reputation of their agency?   Virgil can only say: If the men and women of the CIA felt so strongly against Trump, maybe they should have donated more to the Hillary Clinton campaign—that would have been an honest expression of their view, as opposed to a sneak attack, post-election. 2. The Dimensions of the Deep State So now let’s get to the corpus of what we’re talking about.  The term “Deep State” refers to the complex of bureaucrats, technocrats, and plutocrats that likes things just the way they are and wants to keep them like that—elections be damned. Some might say that “Deep State” is just a synonym for the “Establishment,” and yet “Deep State” refers to a larger grouping, not just to the stereotypical elite “chattering class.”   We can also observe that a Deep State can be found in just about every country in the world, but our focus here, of course, is on the United States. And here in America, the Deep State has its own political consciousness, and it aims to survive any change of government with its collective will—and self-interest—fully intact. Normally, the Deep State is hidden, albeit, at the same time, hiding in plain sight.  That is, while nobody has “Deep State” on his or her business card, the reality of the Deep State is overwhelming: It’s not just the hulking office buildings of the Federal Triangle in downtown DC, it’s also the taxpayer-funded mini-metropolises that have sprouted up in Bethesda, Maryland, Crystal City, Virginia, and a dozen other hubs in and around the I-495 Beltway.  (Hence the familiar phrase, “Beltway Bandits”; Virgil can attest that federal contractors have assumed a kind of ironic affection for that phrase—at least in their private conversations.) A careful taxonomy of the Deep State must begin, of course, with the governmental bureaucracy, which, because of civil-service protections, does not change when one political party or the other takes control of the White House or Congress.  Today, there are about 2.8 million civilian federal employees, as well 1.3 million in the uniformed military. And yet in citing the number of government employees, we’ve only scratched the surface, because for every “public servant,” there seems to be one or more private-sector operator.  To illustrate this phenomenon, we can take a snapshot of just one federal agency, the Department of Homeland Security.  It’s been estimated that at least 100,000 private contractors work at DHS—although nobody really knows, and some estimates go much higher. Indeed, the sheer unknowability of the federal contractor empire is a common theme in Beltway journalism.  Hence this headline from March 12, 2015, appearing in Government Executive magazine: “Even CBO Is Stumped on the Size of the Contractor Workforce.” The “CBO,” of course, is the Congressional Budget Office.  That’s right, even the budget agency of Congress can’t figure out the true number—although some would say that lawmakers have never really wanted to know. These contractors, many of whom are former federal employees, are well compensated.  Here, for example, is a 2013 headline from The Washington Times: “Executive pay balloons for federal contractors.”  The Times identified at least 77 contractors whose revenue came from the federal government and paid their top five executives more than $3 million a year, for an average of $600,000 each.  And where do these big salaries come from?  From big markups, of course.  To cite just one of a  million possible examples, one company sold Apple MacBook Pro computers to Uncle Sam for markups of between $2000 and $4000 each. So as we can see, the Deep State is much larger, and wealthier, than just the bureaucrats.  Funded by a federal government that will spend more than $4 trillion this year, the Deep State includes all the wheeler-dealers, plus the hired-gun experts, lawyers, think-tankers, foundation executives, and others that have sometimes been dubbed the “New Class.” And the proof that this New Class is doing well can be found in the Census data, which show that four of the five richest counties in the US are in the DC metro area. And it’s this luxe life, which has reached its apex under Barack Obama, that finds itself threatened by the drain-the-swamp pledge of Trump.  As The New York Times headlined its so-sad story on November 13, “A Newly Vibrant Washington Fears That Trump Will Drain Its Culture.” Yet in fact, the Deep State extends well beyond Washington.  In 2011, Suzanne Mettler, a professor at Cornell University, published The Submerged State: How Invisible Government Policies Undermine American Democracy.  Mettler is no conspiracy-theorist; her argument is that federal policies, notably tax deductions and credits, have had the effect of encouraging the growth of government in ways that most people never notice.  Mettler’s work is controversial, insofar as she equates taxes that the government did not collect with actual government spending.  And yet the author has a point, because to the extent that the tax law encourages or discourages behavior, it is, in fact, a kind of government policy.  And the total annual value of these tax incentives has been estimated at nearly $1 trillion.   For better or worse, that’s a lot of money for a lot of people. And then there’s the cost of regulation.  Annual federal regulatory compliance costs—that is, the expense of dealing with all that red tape—are estimated to total at least $2 trillion.  And yet we must add this important note: For all the millions of businesses and individuals who must pay the cost of regulation, there are plenty of others who benefit, at least in the short run, from that regulation.   And these perverse beneficiaries, we can further observe, are more likely be acutely aware of how their bread is buttered—here’s looking at you, solar-power industry!—and will thus be all more determined to defend the status quo. And while we’re at it, in our Deep State examination, let’s not forget the whole huge cluster of federal loans and loan guarantees.  Once again, nobody really knows how much all that costs, but estimates range from  hundreds of billions (annually) to many trillions (cumulatively). Not surprisingly, the beneficiaries of all this federal easy money tend to stay quiet about their winnings, but some are vocal. Here, for example, is a 2015 headline from The Los Angeles Times; “Elon Musk defends $4.9 billion in government money for his companies.” Of course, in our survey of the dimensions of the Deep State, we haven’t even touched on state and local government; their expenditures, in 2012, were estimated to total $2.59 trillion.  Moreover, that dollar total doesn’t include the sort of the “submerged” expenditures that Mettler and others have described. To sum up, in 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that the total number of federal, state, and local employees is 21,995,000.  And yet again, the real workforce could be much larger: Iain Murray of the Competitive Enterprise Institute has estimated that the true size of the governmental workforce actually totals 40 million Americans. 3. A Closer Look at the Deep State’s Campaign Against Trump Okay, so we have seen some ways of measuring the size of the Deep State; it is, indeed, an incredible hulk.  And yet the reader might ask: Does that mean that all of those 20 million, or even 40 million, people are opposed to Trump? And the answer, of course, is “No.”  It’s a cinch that quite a few public employees were and are Trump supporters.  And yet at the same time, it would be naive not to realize that Trump fans are the minority within the Deep State.  Moreover, it’s safe to say that most of the leadership of the Deep State—that being, at best, a hazy category—is solidly in the anti-Trump camp. This anti-Trump hostility, we might note, is now more visible—even in entities that might be thought of as being on the right, such as the military and other organizations dedicated to national security.  And why is that?  One obvious reason is that liberal Democrats have controlled the executive branch for 16 of the last 24 years, and so there’s been plenty of time to cultivate liberals—even liberal activists—within the ranks and to bring them to the pinnacles of bureaucratic power. As we know, the Pentagon has not been immune from various forms of political correctness over the years; indeed, many of the most ambitious careerists within DOD have often been leading the leftward charge.  To be sure, the vast bulk of our nation’s warriors are staunch believers in Douglas MacArthur’s trinity of “duty, honor, country,” and so they stood up and cheered, for example, on December 7, when Admiral Harry Harris ripped into anti-American football player Colin Kaepernick. Yet still, during the Obama years, such patriots have been layered over by liberal apparatchiks.  And the same left-pushing syndrome has been equally true of all federal security agencies. In other words, there’s a power struggle that’s coming inside many government units: the pro-Obama old guard vs. the pro-Trump new guard. Yet for now, at least until January 20, the Obamans are in charge.  And so that might explain this December 11 headline in The Washington Post: “Trump, CIA on collision course over Russia’s role in election.” Indeed, there’s a lot of institutional throw-weight lined up against Trump. And that institutional opposition to Trump has plenty of allies, including among many Republicans.  So the reader might ask: How many Republican Never Trumpers are to be found within the ranks of the anti-Trumpers of the Deep State?  And the answer to that question appears to be, many. On December 10, for example, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), a libertarian Republican gadfly always hostile to Trump, tweeted in response to the Trump team’s statement denying any Russia connection: Transition team’s dismissive statement doesn’t cut it.  Congress must determine if there’s credible evidence and investigate if necessary. In the meantime, more prominent Republicans, such as Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. John McCain, having never made any secret of their disdain for Trump, are now actively working with the Democrats, preparing to besiege the Trump administration. Graham, we might recall, even volunteered that he voted for Evan McMullin.   And where did McMullin make his career?  Why, the CIA.  Small world!  And although McMullin received less than half a percent of the vote in November, he continues to attack Trump, and the MSM continues to chronicle his every spiteful word. And now Graham and McCain, joined by the Democrats, are determined to push a Congressional investigation of Trump’s alleged connections to Russia.   As Graham and McCain, joined by two Democrats, Sens. Chuck Schumer and Jack Reed, said in a joint statement on Sunday, “This cannot become a partisan issue,” adding, “The stakes are too high for our country.” Without minimizing the importance of putting a halt to cyber-attacks on America, wherever they might come from, we can translate this statement: It’s not a partisan issue, it’s an institutional issue: Deep State vs. Trump. Such Congressional investigations, we might add, have a way of taking on a life of their own, lumbering forward forever, like some sort of relentless Terminator.   And so, even as terrorist bombs are going off across the world, the Congressional branch of the Deep State is focusing on the enemy it truly wants to terminate—Trump. For its part, the MSM is always happy to push the narrative that the anti-Trump effort is both necessary and bipartisan: hence this December 11 headline in The New York Times, “Trump, Mocking Claim That Russia Hacked Election, at Odds with G.O.P.”  As the Times put it: An extraordinary breach has emerged between President-elect Donald J. Trump and the national security establishment, with Mr. Trump mocking American intelligence assessments that Russia interfered in the election on his behalf, and top Republicans vowing investigations into Kremlin activities. And whatever happens with the Congressional investigation in the short run, it’s a certainty that investigative reporters, would-be muckrakers, foundation-funded documentary filmmakers, and other self-appointed culture creators will be working this story for the long run—the very long run.  Even if they can’t succeed in driving Trump out of office, they can hope to pin an “asterisk” on Trump’s historical legacy, so that he is always remembered, at least in certain quarters, as Putin’s President. So there it is: the Deep State, in all its power, and its fury.  It stretches across the whole of the federal government—indeed, the entirety of the country.  And it includes not only bureaucrats, but also a galaxy of contractors, profiteers, and others in the nominal private sector.  And it includes not only Democrats, but also Republicans.  And oh yes, the MSM and the chattering class. In other words, a great power struggle is under way: the Deep State vs. Trump. And so one last question: Who’s likely to prevail?  We can answer by observing that Trump has done well so far, and yet we can also observe that the Deep State hasn’t given up, and probably never will.

Congress Just Quietly Handed Drug Companies a Dangerous Victory
The 21st Century Cures Act has been lauded as a bipartisan success. It's actually the result of a long war on drug regulation.
By Adam Gaffney December 14, 2016
Christmas came early for the pharmaceutical industry this year. Last week, the Senate followed the House in passing the 21st Century Cures Act. Though this bill has been lauded by liberals for providing much-needed funds for medical research, its real impact will be elsewhere. Whereas drug approval traditionally required the demonstration of real clinical benefit in a randomized clinical trial, under the Act drug firms will increasingly be able to rely on flimsier forms of evidence for approval of their therapies (incremental steps in this direction, it is worth noting, have already occurred). The Act, by reconfiguring the drug regulatory process, lowers the standards for drug approval—a blessing for drug makers, but an ill omen for public health. The thinking behind the 21st Century Cures Act—and likeminded proposals—goes something like this: In the twenty-first century, the pharmaceutical industry—driven by the profit-motive—continues to do a fine job innovating new therapies. Far too often, however, they are being held back by risk-adverse, slow-moving FDA bureaucrats with outdated standards for approval. “Modernize” the FDA—release the cures! Yet if the law did nothing other than weaken FDA standards, it may not have passed: Liberals understandably embraced the act’s new NIH funding, its mental health provisions, and its support for state anti-opioid programs. For Democrats, it also represented the sort of bipartisan “victory” that shows that all is not gridlock in Washington, after all.   In the Senate, a grand total of five senators—including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren—voted against it. The media, meanwhile, has for the most part done a poor job dissecting its actual contents. As a result, few now realize how detrimental the act is likely to be for drug safety, or appreciate the mix of conservative ideology and pharmaceutical industry greed underlying the longstanding campaign that brought it to fruition.         Yet this thinking is flawed on multiple levels: “We need to remember,” as former editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine Marcia Angell wrote in her 2004 pharmaceutical exposé, The Truth About the Drug Companies, “that much of what we think we know about the pharmaceutical industry is mythology spun by the industry’s immense public relations apparatus.” First among these myths is the notion that the status quo of private sector drug research and development is the best of all worlds. On the contrary,
as Angell put it, “me-too” drugs—lucrative, duplicative agents that do not improve on existing therapies—are in fact the “main business of the pharmaceutical industry.” We can’t rely on the profit motive to bring forth new cures, when it’s just as easy for companies to make big profits by redesigning or tweaking drugs that already exist.

100 tons of dead fish in Indonesia, thousands more in Brazil 12.5 million chickens and ducks culled in South Korea ends another week in paradise
Department of Marine and Fisheries (DKP) have reported an incredible 100 tons of fish have died in Agam, Sumatra, Indonesia. The reason for the deaths is also incredible as poison (residual sludge feed), strong winds and lack of oxygen are being blamed. Sludge is also being blamed for thousands of fish found dead along the banks of Ipiranga River in northern Brazil. According to the coordinator of the Tamar project of the Chico Mendes Institute of Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio), João Carlos Thomé, it is possible that the deaths are related to local mining sludge flowing into the river.  And an update on the world-wide bird flu epidemic: South Korea. Since the first case of the highly pathogenic H5N6 virus was confirmed in mid-November, another 43 cases have been reported and close to 10 million chickens and ducks have been slaughtered in farms across the country. In a statement, the agriculture ministry announced plans to cull an additional 2.5 million birds, making it the worst bird flu outbreak since 2014 when nearly 14 million were slaughtered. The World Health Organisation warned earlier this year that the strain has caused "severe infection" in humans. Keep yourself updated here Mass Animal Deaths for 2016

Google made changes to its search algorithm that unintentionally made it vulnerable to the spread of fake news, sources say
Hannah Roberts Dec. 10, 2016, 11:12 AM
Google's search algorithm has been changed over the last year to increasingly reward search results based on how likely you are to click on them, multiple sources tell Business Insider. As a result, fake news now often outranks accurate reports on higher quality websites. The problem is so acute that Google's autocomplete suggestions now actually predict that you are searching for fake news even when you might not be, as Business Insider noted on December 5. There is a common misconception that the proliferation of fake news is all Facebook's fault. Although Facebook does have a fake news problem, Google's ranking algorithm does not take cues from social shares, likes, or comments when it is determining which result is the most relevant, search experts tell Business Insider. The changes at Google took place separately, experts say, to the fake news problem occurring on Facebook. The changes to the algorithm now move links up Google's search results page if Google detects that more people are clicking on them, search experts tell Business Insider. Joost De Valk, founder of Yoast, a search consultancy that has worked for The Guardian, told Business Insider: "All SEOs [search engine optimisation experts] agree that they include relative click-through rate (CTR) from the search results in their ranking patterns. For a given 10 results page, they would expect a certain CTR for position five, for instance. If you get more clicks than they’d expect, thus a higher CTR, they’ll usually give you a higher ranking and see if you still outperform the other ones,"  Search marketing consultant Rishi Lakhani said: "Though Google doesn't like to admit it, it does use CTR (click through rate) as a factor. Various tests I and my contemporaries have run indicate that. The hotter the subject line the better the clicks, right?" It is well known that Google includes user-behaviour signals to evaluate its ranking algorithms. Google has an obvious interest in whether users like its search results. Its ranking engineers look at live traffic frequently to experiment with different algorithms. User behavior signals have the added advantage of being difficult to model, or reproduce, by unscrupulous web publishers who want to game the algorithm.  The unfortunate side effect is that user-behaviour signals also reward fake news. Previously, Google's ranking relied more heavily on how authoritative a page is, and how authoritative the incoming links to that page are. If a page at Oxford University links to an article published by Harvard, Google would rank that information highly in its display of search results. Now, the ranking of a page can also be boosted by how often it's clicked on even if it does not have incoming links from authoritative sources, according to Larry Kim, founder and chief technology officer of WordStream, a search marketing consultancy. The result of all this is that "user engagement" has become a valuable currency in the world of fake news. And people who believe in conspiracy theories — the kind of person who spends hours searching for "proof" that Hillary Clinton is a child abuser, for instance — are likely to be highly engaged with the fake content they are clicking on. Thus even months after a popular fake news story has been proven to be fake, it will still rank higher than the most relevant result showing that it's false, if a large enough volume of people are clicking on it and continuing to send engagement signals back to Google's algorithm. Here some examples. President Obama has never signed an order banning the US national anthem, and yet ... De Valk says: "I think the reason fake news ranks is the same reason why it shows up in Google’s autocomplete: they’ve been taking more and more user signals into their algorithm. If something resonates with users, it’s more likely to get clicks. If you’re the number three result for a query, but you’re getting the most clicks, Google is quick to promote you to #1 ... Nothing in their algorithm checks facts." Google never explains in full how its algorithm works but a spokesperson for the company said: "When someone conducts a search, they want an answer, not trillions of webpages to scroll through. Algorithms are computer programs that look for clues to give you back exactly what you want. Depending on the query, there are thousands, if not millions, of web pages with helpful information. These algorithms are the computer processes and formulas that take your questions and turn them into answers. Today Google’s algorithms rely on more than 200 unique signals or 'clues' that make it possible to show what you might really be looking for and surface the best answers the web can offer." Larry Kim, founder and chief technology officer of WordStream, a search marketing consultancy, tracks the changes to October 2015, when Google added a machine-learning program called "RankBrain" to the list of variables that control its central search algorithm. It deployed the system to all search results in June of this year. Is this machine learning's fault? "I’m certain of this," Kim said. "This is the biggest thing that changed in the algorithm over the last year." Rankbrain is now the third most-important variable in Google's search algorithm, according to Greg Corrado, a senior research scientist at Google. The change was intended to help Google make more intelligent guesses about the 15% of new daily search queries that Google has never encountered before. RankBrain considers previous human behaviour, such as the historical popularity of similar searches, in its attempt to get the right answer. Kim told us: "The reason why they did this was not to create fake news. They created this because links can be vulnerable, links can be gamed. In fact it is so valuable to have these number one listings for commercial listings that there’s a lot of link fraud. User-engagement [looking at how popular a search result is] sees through attempts to inflate the value of content." Kim's opinion is disputed by his peers. Lakhani doubts that RankBrain is the sole cause of the proliferation of fake news. "It's been tested on and off for a while," he says. De Valk is not so sure either. "I'm not sure it's related to that. It might be, but I'm not sure. Google does hundreds of updates every year," he told Business Insider. There is one other factor: Google's "In the news" section displayed fake news stories so prominently that Google killed it in early December. “There should just be no situation where fake news gets distributed, so we are all for doing better here,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai said at the time. Naturally, the type of content that is more likely to get clicked on is also more likely to get shared, commented on, and liked on Facebook. And Facebook and Google both reward engagement (or popularity, which gives off similar signals). That pushes an item higher on the newsfeed in Facebook's case, and on the search results page in Google's case. The performance of fake news on Google is correlated to its performance on Facebook because they both deal in the same currency — user engagement. So what does well on Facebook often does well on Google. This is correlation, not causation. But the fact that the two of them are occurring at the same time exacerbates the high-level presence of fake news generally. Google and Facebook dominate the amount of time people spend online and inside apps. The changes at Google help explain why fake news has suddenly gone from circulating in a tiny corner of the internet to something that outperforms real news, influences Google's predictive search, and has real world consequences — such as the Comet Ping Pong shooting, done by a man who was convinced from his internet searches that Clinton was using the restaurant as a front for a child abuse ring. Nearly 50% of Trump voters believe the same thing, according to research by Public Policy Polling. Disclosure: The author owns Google stock.

Brainwashing The World
By Hal Lindsey
 This week, Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, summoned a group of conservative leaders to his headquarters in Menlo Park, California.  He wanted to fight allegations of a liberal bias within Facebook news. Gizmodo broke the story a couple of weeks ago.  They wrote, “Facebook workers routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential ‘trending’ news section, according to a former journalist who worked on the project.” Facebook has consistently denied the claim. You may wonder why it’s a big deal.  Every news operation chooses what it will cover.  But Facebook does not bill itself as a news organization.  It’s a social media site.  Its news feed is supposedly based on what people have been clicking on over the last few hours.  That’s why they use the word “trending.” It’s not a news site, and yet more than a billion people read its news feed every day.  Farhad Manjoo wrote in a New York Times editorial, “Facebook is the world’s most influential source of news.”  He added that it “operates under a veneer of empiricism.  Many people believe that what you see on Facebook represents some kind of data-mined objective truth unmolested by the subjective attitudes of fair-and-balanced human beings.  None of that is true.  The question isn’t whether Facebook has outsize power to shape the world — of course it does, and of course you should worry about that power.” Two years ago, Facebook used its news feeds in a massive experiment.  They changed news content for a half million users, adding positive or negative stories to see if they could affect the mood of their users.  They discovered that what they put in the news feed does indeed influence the mood and attitude of users.  Positive stories meant more positive posts, and negative ones resulted in more negative posts. Lauren Weinstein, a privacy activist said at the time, “I wonder if Facebook killed anyone with their emotion manipulation stunt.”  She added, “At their scale and with depressed people out there, it’s possible.” Big media companies routinely monitor viewers and readers.  They watch what we click on, and how we move around their websites.  They see what stimulates us, and what doesn’t.  They claim to be trying to improve the end-user’s experience, though it’s usually about manipulation for the sake of successful advertising. But Facebook went beyond that. They actually ran psychological experiments on people without permission.  Have they stopped? Every week, Facebook employees use an internal poll to find out what most of them want to ask Mr. Zuckerberg.  On March 4th, they came up with this.  “What responsibility does Facebook have to help prevent President Trump in 2017?” So within the ranks of “the world’s most influential source of news,” there is a desire to use their vast reach as a means of manipulating the presidential election.  If they publicly said that they, as a company, were out to stop Donald Trump, which would be fine.  That would be a group of people using their influence to impact the system.  But if they do it secretly, while pretending that their news feeds are about nothing more than “what’s trending,” then they’re dead wrong. Newspapers and networks have always had bias in their news coverage.  But none of the other news sources have a billion viewers or readers.  And
even the proudest newspapers have never exhibited the kind of arrogance shown by Facebook, Google, Apple, and MicrosoftLike James Bond villains, the leaders of these companies honestly want to take over the world.  They are convinced that they can remake it in their own image.  And they lack the humility to understand what a disaster that would be. Americans consume thousands of commercials every day.  They identify with on-screen heroes that are often immoral and subversive.  Humans interpret facts based on context, and in 21st century America, the media provides much, if not most, of that context. This raises a question that should concern us all.  How can we know how much we’re being influenced by all this data going into our minds?  When the whole world is shifting, how can you know how much it has moved you? For millennia, builders have used a device called a “plumb line,” or “plumb bob.”  The design is deceptively simple — just a weight on the end of a string.  It is a way to measure if a wall is perfectly vertical.  When it is still, the weight hanging down from the string always points toward the center of the earth.  You can’t go by the ground, because it can be uneven or slanted.  But the plumb line will always be true. In Amos 7:7, God revealed Himself to Amos.  “The Lord was standing by a wall that had been built true to plumb, with a plumb line in His hand.” (NIV) God’s plumb line is available to each of us.  It is His word.  It will always be true — always “plumb.”  From the world, we hear a cacophony of voices.  Who do you believe?  In John 14:6, Jesus said, “I am… the truth.” Measure everything by Him.

Jerusalem of Trump: Where the president-elect might put the US embassy
A little-known lease agreement from 1989 suggests a forsaken plot in busy Talpiot could be the spot — though the Palestinians claim it is ‘stolen property,’ and Trump may not even know about it
By Raphael Ahren December 13, 2016, 5:48 am
Two dilapidated couches, a handful of battered chairs and a well-used grill sit in the empty lot. More debris is sprinkled around them — pieces of an old shoe, broken Heineken bottles, the rusty innersprings of an old mattress that somebody forgot here years ago. These are some of the items lying around the plot, adjacent to two busy Jerusalem thoroughfares, that was once designated as the site of the American embassy. For decades, this piece of land has lain barren, a gaping hole in the heart of the capital’s bustling Talpiot neighborhood that nobody paid much attention to. But now that the incoming US administration is announcing its intention to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, this piece of land, on the corner of Hebron Road and Daniel Yanovsky Street, could soon find itself in the global spotlight. As desolate as this plot may look today, it has a rich history and just might face a controversial future. The Arab world and particularly the Palestinians are sure to protest any country that wants to move its embassy to Jerusalem, regardless of the exact location. But Palestinian activists have claimed since the 1980s that this particular plot belongs at least partially to them and that it would be “unbecoming” for the US to establish an embassy “on land that is stolen property.”The little-known story of this piece of land goes back to the British Mandate era, when it housed the so-called Allenby Barracks, named after the UK’s General Edmund Allenby who operated an army base there. Later, the State of Israel maintained a border police station there. In the 1980s, American politicians, led by Republican Senator Jesse Helms, urged the administration to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move its embassy to the city. In 1988, a law was passed calling for two “diplomatic facilities” to be built in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.In the last days of the Reagan presidency, on January 18, 1989, US ambassador to Israel William Brown and Israel Lands Authority deputy director Moshe Gatt signed an agreement according to which a plot of land in Jerusalem would be leased from Israel to the US for 99 years, for $1 per year.“The fifteen-page ‘Land Lease and Purchase Agreement’ referred only to ‘the Jerusalem property,’ but almost immediately reports surfaced — later confirmed — that the land in question was located in what was known as the Allenby Barracks, the site of the British army’s Jerusalem garrison during the Mandate,” Palestinian scholar Walid Khalidi wrote in a 2000 article for the Journal of Palestine Studies. According to Khalidi, the plot is 31,250 square meters (7.7 acres). “Ever since the signature of the 1989 lease agreement and the insistent reports linking the site to the Allenby Barracks, Palestinian circles have questioned the lease’s legality on the grounds that the site of the envisaged embassy was Palestinian refugee property confiscated by the Israeli authorities, along with other refugee properties, since 1948,” Khalidi wrote. “More particularly, it was alleged that the site was part of an Islamic waqf.” (The Waqf is a Muslim religious trust active in Jerusalem.) A few years later, in 1995, the Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed, calling on the administration to recognize the Holy City as Israel’s capital and relocate the embassy there. However, the law allowed for the president to waive the move if he or she deemed it detrimental to American national security interests. Since its passing, every US president — Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — has signed the waiver every six months, despite Bush and Clinton having promised to move the embassy during their respective campaigns.  For this reason, many observers scoffed in disbelief when Donald Trump promised to relocate the embassy during a speech to the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC in March. But on Monday a top aide made headlines when she said that fulfilling this particular campaign promise was a “very big priority” for the president-elect. Later on Monday, Israel’s Channel 2 reported that Trump aides have started to scout out possible sites and that the move “was closer than ever.” The report indicated that a possible location for the embassy could be adjacent to the US Consulate building on 14 David Flusser Street, which is located in Arnona, less than 20 minutes’ walk from the site of the former Allenby Barracks. The US Consulate-General in Jerusalem currently operates two facilities in Jerusalem: the main branch on Agron Street (where it has owned a building since 1912) and the Consular Section on Flusser Street, which opened in 2010, replacing a building on Nablus Road, in East Jerusalem, which the US had been leasing since 1952. In 2014, the US purchased a building adjacent to the facility on Flusser Street — home to the Diplomat Hotel — which currently houses new immigrants. The Israeli authorities reportedly say that several years are needed to vacate the building. Almost two centuries of representation The US sent its first consul to Jerusalem in 1844, more than a century before the State of Israel was founded. Some 13 years later, the administration established a permanent consular presence in the Old City. The mission on Agron Street was declared a Consulate General in 1928, representing the US in Jerusalem (East and West), the West Bank and Gaza “as an independent mission,” since the US does not recognize Israeli sovereignty over any part of Jerusalem. It is unclear at time of writing whether Trump’s team is seriously considering moving the embassy — which has been in its current location on Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Street since the late 1960s — to the Diplomat Hotel site adjacent to the Arnona consulate. It is possible that the president-elect and his aides are unaware that the US already has a large site earmarked for an embassy here at the former Allenby Barracks; this might seem inconceivable, but his transition team has reportedly not been discussing the embassy move with the State Department. Or it could be that the site has been deemed unsuitable, perhaps from a security point of view, given that it is located immediately adjacent to two busy streets, residential buildings and a playground. But the former Allenby Barracks, situated in pre-1967 Israel but very close to the pre-1967 Green Line, may be most controversial due to its disputed ownership. According to an article in a 2000 publication from the Badil Resource Center for Palestine Residency and Refugee Rights, 19 Palestinian families from Jerusalem “have been traced as owners of the property.” A small part of the property was requisitioned by Britain during the Mandate period, the article states. The rest is composed of five parcels: one belonged to the Waqf and four were rented from private owners until May 1948, when the State of Israel was founded. Walid Khalidi, the Palestinian scholar, wrote that activists — himself included — challenged the Land Lease and Purchase Agreement mere months after it was signed in 1989. Critics argued that the lease not only constituted a dramatic change in US policy — which does not recognize anyone’s sovereignty over Jerusalem before a final-status peace agreement is concluded — but also implied an American admission that Israel owned this piece of land. In June 1989, the State Department replied to these complaints by stating that it was “aware of claims that Islamic Trust (Waqf) holds an interest in a portion of the agreed site in Jerusalem” but had not been able “to locate any record of or support for this claim during a thorough title search completed by us.” A possible relocation of the embassy would be addressed “only in the context of a negotiated settlement of the West Bank and Gaza.” Ten years later, in 1999, a senior State Department official acknowledged that the Land Lease and Purchase Agreement “identified particular property” for the purpose of an embassy that “might be leased to the US by the government of Israel under certain conditions,” according to the article in the Badil journal. “As of today, however, the US has not entered into a lease for this or any other property under the Agreement.” According to paragraph 2.1 entitled “Principle Terms of the Lease and Purchase … the Government of Israel will immediately initiate all measures required for obtaining the sole and lawful ownership of the properties, free from any encumbrances or third party claims.” But Khalidi argued that the position that the 1989 lease had not gone into effect “flies in the face of the wording of the lease itself.” Khalidi, who taught at Oxford, Harvard and the American University of Beirut and founded the Institute for Palestine Studies, did extensive research into the most minute details of the question over the ownership. Concluding his 8,000-word article on the matter, he argued that the plot of the Allenby Barracks is “confiscated refugee land” that the UK had no claims to, and that Israel had thus no right to lease it to the US. “With all that Jerusalem connotes, it is, to say the least, unbecoming for the United States’s future embassy in that city to be built on land that is stolen property,” Khalidi wrote. Today, the Palestinians are vocal in their opposition to the entire notion of a possible relocation of the US embassy to Jerusalem. “I hope that the new administration will carefully measure its policy toward the city and continue to adhere to the declared and official position of the US about Jerusalem,” Ambassador Maen Rashid Areikat, the chief Palestine Liberation Organization representative to the US, told The New York Times this week. “Taking sides with Israel on such a sensitive and highly emotional issue will further escalate tension in an area that is already volatile.” The American embassy in Tel Aviv did not reply to several Times of Israel queries on the disputed ownership of the Allenby Barracks site. In an email, an embassy official stated: “Since Israel’s founding, Administrations of both parties have maintained a consistent policy of recognizing no state as having sovereignty over Jerusalem. We remain committed to this long-standing policy. Every US Administration, Republican or Democrat, has taken the position that the status of Jerusalem must be permanently resolved through negotiations between the parties.” In Israel, the wish to see the embassy in Jerusalem is relatively widespread, shared by politicians from most of the way across the political spectrum (though emphatically excluding the Arab parties). “No relationship between two countries is so close as the relationship between Israel and the US, and therefore it is an anomaly that Washington never recognized Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital,” said Deputy Minister Michael Oren, a former Israeli ambassador to the US. “The issue is not where the American embassy will be,” continued Oren, who before entering politics was a historian specializing on US-Israel ties. “It is that US recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. This move need not prejudice the peace process in any way.” He added: “I don’t care where the embassy is built, as long as it’s in Jerusalem.”

FBI Disagrees With CIA On Russian Influence In The Presidential Election
Russ Read Pentagon/Foreign Policy Reporter 5:55 PM 12/11/2016
The FBI did not corroborate the CIA’s claim that Russia had a hand in the election of President-elect Donald Trump in a meeting with lawmakers last week. A
senior FBI counterintelligence official met with Republican and Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in order to give the bureau’s view of a recent CIA report. The official did not concur with the CIA, frustrating Democrats. The CIA believes Russia “quite” clearly intended to send Trump to the White House. The claim is a bold one, and concerned Democrats and some Republicans who are worried about Trump’s desire to mend relations with an increasingly aggressive Russia. The CIA report was “direct, bald and unqualified,” one of the officials at the meeting told The Washington Post Saturday. The different conclusions reached by the two intelligence agencies is a reflection of their different institutional styles. CIA officials often use past behavior and analysis based on gathered intelligence to advise leaders, whereas the FBI comes from a more legalistic background which relies on hard evidence to make a case. Completing this poll entitles you to Daily Caller news updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. The White House announced Friday that President Barack Obama ordered a full-scope investigation into the allegations against the Kremlin. Obama wants the investigation to be completed before he leaves office in late January, and intends to declassify as much of it as possible. Legislators want to accompany the report with a congressional investigation. “Only in this way can the American people know the extent of Russian interference and we can attempt to inoculate ourselves against continued meddling in our elections,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House intelligence committee, told the Washington Post. Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the committee, sided with FBI’s assessment. “There is no clear evidence — even now,” he told the Post. “There’s a lot of innuendo, lots of circumstantial evidence, that’s it.”

Globalism vs. Nationalism-The New Civil War
I have delayed writing this piece for two days. The delay was not caused by my lack of confidence in my ability to connect the dots of America’s impending doom. My hesitation was due to the fact that the upcoming scenario is so devastating to our country and I find the material to be emotionally unnerving. Therefore, I am issuing a “viewer discretion” warning related to this two-part series.
The Motivation to Attack Trump and Nationalist Movement All wars and revolutions first start in the mind. And from this perspective, America is already embroiled in a civil war.
This civil war can be accurately characterized as the globalists vs. the nationalists. Before these bipolar opposites related to governance are analyzed, let’s first look at the prime directives of the globalists because they are the least understood by the general public. The New World Order seeks to enslave humanity in the following manner: The evisceration of all national boundaries and native cultures to make it easier to impose the globalist will upon the people. The refugee/resettlement program is a prime example of this “global” thinking. Trump and his followers are a threat to this version of the global agenda where immigration is controlled by national authorities instead of being ignored by the executive branch of government. If Trump is able to establish national control of our borders, globalism takes a big step backwards.     The establishment of autocratic global governance is key to the master plan for a New World Order. The free-trade agreements (e.g. NAFTA, CAFTA, TPP) are a cornerstone to destroy national boundaries, the political sovereignty, and national economies in order to achieve their global governance goals. The notion of tariffs has become antiquated. National governments no longer exist to protect the people, they exist to protect and maximize corporate profits. The wholesale relocation of businesses overseas in search of cheap third-world labor has replaced mercantilism as the primary system of economics. This lasissez-faire approach to economics wrestles all political authority away from a nation’s political structure and replaces it with global and corporate governance. Nations will eventually die as will the civil liberties of each country such as the United States. Under this system, the people become the property of the fascist corporate state and these individuals will be bent to the will of the globalists. Therefore, the modern nations, such as the United States, with its constitutional republic, must be totally and utterly destroyed. With Trump’s proposal to impose a 35% tax on all imports, in order to save American jobs, spits in the face of globalism. Does anyone believe that the New World Order is going to respect the rule of law and comply with the express will of the people who elected Donald Trump? Of course not, and that is why we are in a state of war. The establishment of the New World Order and the threat that Donald Trump and his followers pose cannot be accurately portrayed in the typical left-right paradigm. It can only be portrayed as a Globalist vs. Nationalist agenda. The Fake News Paradigm The designation of “fake news”, or what Congress is now calling it,  foreign propaganda, is typical of this globalist thinking. All loyalty is owed to the corporate, global-governance and any nationalist movement is viewed as not only antiquated, but treasonous and will eventually be dealt with in the same manner that President Lincoln dealt with the South when they attempted to withdraw from the Union. Any website or radio show that professes belief in Constitutional ideals and Christian principles, is a traitor to the cause of globalism. Therefore, when the CSS expresses support for the Bill of Rights, I am committing an act of terrorism against the new global state that has hijacked our government. The Historical Significance of the Trump Movement The survival of all nation-states is on its last legs. The enemy is not within the gates, the globalist enemy has seized control over all of our institutions and have destroyed our cornerstone institutions such as education and the Christian church. On Sunday, when Trump said he wanted to restore prayer in school, it is clear to me that he has an appreciation for the moment that he occupies in world history. Conclusion America is at the abyss of a desolate dictatorial tyranny like the world has never seen. Americans are on the verge of not only losing their freedoms, but ultimately, we will lose our soul if we do not individually and collectively change course from a spiritual perspective. Further, globalist governance is a threat to 95% of the humans on this planet as the globalists, themselves, have advocated for the elimination of all of the useless eaters, all 95% of us. This is what Clinton meant when she used the word “deplorables” to describe the noncompliant nationalists. Does it make sense now why the globalists would promote a 4th degree Coven witch as a presidential candidate? Due to sheer length and nothing else, this analysis must be broken into two parts. In part two, there is a decided three-tiered approach to end the populist threat of Donald Trump. America is in the middle of this threat. The threat, if successful, will culminate with the prevention of Trump taking office, or moving to the more vile threat of the possible assassination of Donald Trump. It is clear from the emerging scenario, the real threat to the American people is what will follow the death of Trump’s populist movement. Did anyone catch the Army-Navy football game? I don’t watch much football anymore. However, the Army-Navy game has been a family tradition since I was five years old. I still catch part of each Army-Navy game in remembrance of my father. This past Saturday, I just happened to catch when the crowd realized that Donald Trump was in attendance and began to chant in unison, “Make America Great Again”. It was enough to bring to tears to one’s eyes. The globalists must move swiftly against Donald Trump and the Independent Media in order to prevent the rising tide of nationalism. In part two of this series, I will describe this previously mentioned three-tiered approach to taking down America’s last nationalist movement. America is indeed on life-support. Can we awaken our nation from its self-induced coma? Part two answers these questions. Please pray for Donald Trump as well as nation.

US Government Is Secretly Allied with America's Enemies
 [NOTE: On the morning of December 11th, German Economic News headlined “Brutal Power Struggle in the U.S.: CIA Is Targeting Donald Trump” (“Brutaler Machtkampf in den USA: CIA nimmt Donald Trump ins Visier”), and the following essay places that event into its essential broader global and historical context — because the future of America, and of the world, will be shaped by the outcome of this power-struggle, which cannot be truthfully understood outside of that broader context, regardless what happens. PS: The
CIA’s alleged allegations in that matter are lies, and here’s how a former British Ambassador tells how he knows that they’re lies.] Everyone knows that jihadists, and people who fund their terrorism against the United States and against other (non-fundamentalist-Islamic) nations, are enemies of every (non-fundamentalist-Islamic) nation, including the United States. However, what isn’t well known is that the U.S. federal government is itself secretly allied with jihadists and their funders — secretly allied with (and dependent upon) the enemies of all nations (including the U.S.) that aren’t fundamentalist-Islamic. Our government is secretly allied with jihadist groups in a number of countries, and is allied especially with the Arab royal families who finance jihadists in all countries (except their own — none of those royals wants jihadists to attack their own countries: their deal with jihadists is for them to attack only other countries). Even thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks against the U.S. by a team of 19 jihadists — 15 of whom were Saudis — the former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was saying in an email to her friend John Podesta on 17 August 2014, that "we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL [ISIS] and other radical Sunni groups in the region.” The phrase “the government of Qatar” refers to the Thani family, who own that country; and the phrase “the government of Saudi Arabia” refers to the Saud family, who own that country. She was referring to the Thanis (and their vassals) and to the Sauds (and their vassals) — they’re the main and enduring sources of funding for ISIS, Al Qaeda, and other ‘terrorist’ (actually jihadist) groups. (The word ‘terrorist’ is used in order to make the public think that jihadists are no different from, or are basically similar to, other types of terrorists, such as Timothy McVeigh, and many different types of terrorists. But jihadists belong actually in a different and more dangerous category from those, and that’s the type of terrorist which is posing a significant national-security threat, in the United States, and in many other countries.) One might want to, as Hillary Clinton said, “bring pressure upon” — as opposed to harm or kill — an ally. However, an enemy (which is what those families actually are) is supposed to be treated differently (and far more harshly) than that. Ms. Clinton was stating that the U.S. government should bring pressure upon the Thanis and the Sauds, to stop their funding foreign jihadists such as Al Qaeda and ISIS — their funding of groups that endanger Americans. However, no indication has been presented showing that either Ms. Clinton or her State Department even brought pressure upon those allies — not even 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, which attacks those Arabic royal families (especially the Sauds) financed — and those ‘allies’, according to her, were still doing this. When she was Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton sent a cable dated 30 December 2009 which said of the Saudi government (owned by the Saud family): It has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority. … Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide. … Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, LeT, and other terrorist groups, including Hamas, which probably raise millions of dollars annually from Saudi sources. … That cable also said of the Qatar Government (owned by the Thani family): Qatar’s overall level of CT [Counter Terrorist] cooperation with the U.S. is considered the worst in the region. Al-Qaida, the Taliban, UN-1267 listed LeT, and other terrorist groups exploit Qatar as a fundraising locale. Although Qatar’s security services have the capability to deal with direct threats and occasionally have put that capability to use, they have been hesitant to act against known terrorists. ...  The long-suppressed ‘missing 28 pages’ from the U.S. Congress’s 9/11 report documented that the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud (a top member of the Saud family), and his wife, had regularly been sending multi-thousand-dollar funds to the two Saudi minders who were paying for the flight-training and apartment rents for (basically setting-up) some of the 15 Saudi (out of the 19 total) 9/11 hijackers, prior to the attacks.
