IDF Snipers Ordered to Shoot Palestinian Children, Israeli General Confirms

Lets be clear as to implications.

When they ” shoot at children, they are doing so deliberately, under clear and specific orders.”

What this means is that the Netanyahu government ordered the killing of children. The guidelines adopted by the IDF were approved at the highest levels of the Israeli government.

We are dealing with crimes against humanity and the self-proclaimed “international community” applauds. Western leaders, not to mention the media, are complicit: the consensus is that “Israel has the right to defend itself” …. by killing children.

Through omission, the Western media does not mention the words “Gaza Massacre”. You won’t see it. The Palestinians are described as “terrorists”. The lie become the truth!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When you mame and kill children, you mame and kill the future of that society of which those children were a part; this is one of the many-faceted elements of Israel's "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian Problem".

Israel Won’t Cooperate With UN Probe on Gaza Killings

Israeli officials announced Friday that they will completely refuse all cooperation with the new UN probe into the Nakba Day killings of 61 Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border. The protesters were killed by Israeli troops.

UN Human Rights Council
A UN Security Council resolution failed to agree on the probe, when it was vetoed by the United States. The UN Human Rights Council, where no veto power exists, held a special session agreeing to send international investigators into the probe.

It was the deadliest single day in the Gaza Strip since the 2014 Israeli invasion. The incident lead to substantial international outcry. Israeli officials argued that the number of deaths were themselves of no consequence, likening it to killing Nazis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu now has a full-blown PR crisis of immesurable proportions.

So he is now characterizing reporters covering these protests, and little infants slaughtered in their monthers' arms, "Nazis" ?!?!?

Sorry, Mr. Prime Minister; you jumped the shark with this characterization, and will firmly impress upon the world, that the only way to deal with this genocide, is with a brisk embracing of BDS.

Economics is a language Israelis thoroughly understand, and if this the only peaceful, logical way in which to attempt to prevent further slaughter of the Palestinian people, so be it!!

Gina Haspel Said Only One Detainee’s Torture Was Taped. She’s Wrong.

Donald Trump’s chosen CIA chief claimed the torture tapes she helped destroy showed one detainee’s torture. But she oversaw the torture of a second taped detainee.

It seemed like a small misstatement, the sort anyone makes from time to time, but it might augur much for Gina Haspel’s relationship with the truth as Donald Trump’s potential next CIA director.

All the available evidence, to include declassified CIA documents, indicates that two detainees had their torture at the hands of the CIA recorded on 92 agency videotapes in 2002 at a black site Haspel eventually ran. The vast majority of the tapes showed Abu Zubaydah’s torture. A few showed the torture of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, whose waterboarding and other torture occurred under Haspel’s command as chief of base at the Thailand secret prison she ran between October and December 2002.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The choice of Haspel was perfectly logical, on Trump's part.

He is telegraphing perpetual wars, "seasoned" with torture, will be the rule of the day, and the rule of law, and the Geneva Conventions, be damned.

And I would like you to think about this, particularly if you have family in the military.

When this country tortures, or outsources it , there are two results. First, the rest of the world understands that the humanitarian values, this country claims it practices, are practiced in the breach, not in their observance.
Second, when this country tortures, or outsources torture, it gives a country's leadership carte blanche to do precisely the same to American citizens, or our military.

Back in World War II, there was a German interrogator, Hans Scharff, who never, ever used torture:
Wikipedia: Hans Scharff

He was lauded for his humanitarian treatment of American and British POWS, and would take them out on day passes for cultural events, and feed them decently. At the end of the war, he was so highly respected by the US government and military, that he was invited to teach his methods at military bases all over the country.

Torture doesn't work, and will only get the tortured person to say what he or she thinks the torturer wants to hear to get the torture to stop, and very rarely produces actionable results. People who torture like to hurt people, because they can, and psychologically "get off" on the process, and know that they will be able to get away with it with impunity.

The fact that he and his advisors chose a Torquemada archetype, as the Director of the CIA, rather than a Scharff archetype, does not bode well for American foreign policy any time soon.

Ecuador to remove Julian Assange's extra security from London embassy

President Lenin Moreno makes order after revelations of multimillion dollar spy and security operation set up for WikiLeaks founder.

The president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno, has ordered the withdrawal of additional security assigned to the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has remained for almost six years.

Revealed: Ecuador spent millions on spy operation for Julian Assange
Read more
The move was announced a day after an investigation by the Guardian and Focus Ecuador revealed the country had bankrolled a multimillion-dollar spy operation to protect and support Assange, employing an international security company and undercover agents to monitor his visitors, embassy staff and even the British police.

Over more than five years, Ecuador put at least $5m (£3.7m) into a secret intelligence budget that protected him while he had visits from Nigel Farage, members of European nationalist groups and individuals linked to the Kremlin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ecuador's President Moreno has just put a knife to the throad of Julian Assange, by removing this extra level of security.

The US and UK both want an example made of him, to demonstrate to the world as to what happens to truth tellers who are honest in their information, which in any way, negates their governmental narratives/propaganda.

So extradition to either country for a kangaroo court trial, where he is tried, convicted, and jailed, may not be enough to sate the hunger of these two Deep State countries for blood, and this time, potentially, literally.

I am hoping and praying that this doesn't happen, but if he is executed, look for the method chosen to be as slow, grizzly, and as horrific as either the executioner can conjure, or what they have been ordered to do.

He will most probably be made to die from his injuries, which may have been non life-threatening, with proper medical care. Perhaps it will be staged to look like a robbery. These images will be plastered all over the media, as an example of what happens when you when you cross the line by actually telling the truth.

I would, however, like to politely point out to the governments of both the US and UK that such an act will make him a martyr, in the eyes of many in the independent media, who admired his courage, and his honesty.

Additionally, such an execution will cause his reputation to grow exponentially, and become an even more meaningful inspiration to the Independent Media.

U.S. Catholic Bishops: "Violence is Not the Answer to Conflict between Israelis and Palestinians"

Unlike protestant Arch-Zionist senator Lindsey Graham, who declared "If You Got a Problem with US Embassy in Jerusalem "Take it Up with God", the Catholic Bishops stated, "The protests by Palestinians are fueled by desperation due to the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza...Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem was a provocative and unhelpful step in the pursuit of peace."

Nancy Pelosi Defends Violent MS-13 Gang Members In Response To Trump, Says They’re Not Animals

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended violent MS-13 gang members in a press conference Thursday, saying they are not “animals,” a term President Trump dubbed MS-13 members earlier this week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really, Representative Pelosi?!?

I invite you to read from the following article, out of vox.com:

MS 13 Explained,and I would very much like for you to pay some attention (if your intellectually able, that is) to the following passage:

"MS-13 makes its money through relatively small-time drug dealing and old-fashioned extortion. That extortion can be brutal, and sometimes wide-scale: In 2015, they extorted the bus drivers of San Salvador into going on strike for higher wages, so that more of those wages could be turned over to the gang. But it’s not as sophisticated as the multitude of revenue streams that other transnational criminal organizations have.

Nonetheless, MS-13 occupies a lot of real estate in the imagination of many Americans — and politicians. What really distinguishes MS-13 is the spectacle of its executions. As anthropologist Jorja Leap told the Atlantic, “They don’t just kill people, they cut off body parts.” In 2003, MS-13 members in Northern Virginia retaliated against 17-year-old Brenda Paz for informing on the gang to the FBI by stabbing the pregnant Paz so violently in the neck that “her head was almost completely severed” when her body was dredged out of the Shenandoah River. In spring 2017, as many as 10 gang members in Wheaton, Maryland, stabbed a victim 100 times and cut out his heart and buried it separately."

So, in understanding this, Representative Pelosi, would you be inclined to invite a couple of members of this group over for an afternoon tea in your offices in DC, on the bet that they are NOT "monsters"?!?

Thought not!!

VIDEO SHOWS HORRORS OF DRUG WAR AS COPS CORNER UNARMED MAN FOR HAVING A PLANT, EXECUTE HIM

Thomasville police officers have been cleared by a grand jury in the shooting death of 37-year-old Herbert Gilbert Jr. Following the grand jury’s ruling that the officer-involved-shooting was justified, Thomasville Police released body camera footage of the deadly encounter. The graphic footage shows Gilbert’s attempt to flee in his SUV, only to be gunned down by officers who presumably feared for their lives. Gilbert did not have a gun, was not attempting to run-over any officers, and was actually backing up his vehicle when officer Josh Smith shot him 8 times through the windshield. His original crime? He had an illegal plant.

When the body camera footage begins, officers can be heard saying they have a search warrant and announced their presence inside a house. Gilbert wasted no time attempting to flee, but the chase was made exponentially more dangerous when a Thomasville officer attempted to stop Gilbert with the maneuver known as the “pit maneuver.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assassination of this kind should never be a stock in trade for any US police department, period, end of discussion.

What the hell ever happened to "talking someone down" with negotiating skills?!?

ISRAEL USES DRONES TO DROP TEAR GAS ON GAZANS FOR FIRST TIME

Israeli occupying forces used unmanned drones to drop tear gas on Palestinians in Gaza for the first time last Friday, according to the Times of Israel.

Some 200 Gazans had gathered at the border fence with Israel as part of a weekly protest against the ten-year blockade when an unmanned aerial vehicle approached the scene. Footage from the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news agency shows the drone dropping canisters of tear gas on the protesters who can then be seen running blindly from the scene.

The Gazan Health Ministry said that at least two people were wounded in the clashes, with at least eight other Gazans injured by Israeli fire during protests elsewhere in the coastal enclave.

According to military sources, the usage of drones to fire tear gas is still experimental and has not yet been made operational.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Josef Mengele would have been so damned proud of this IDF "experiment"!!!

SPECIAL OPS GETTING 1000S OF SMALL GLIDE MUNITIONS THAT PACK A BIGGER PUNCH THAN HELLFIRES

As global counterterrorism operations show no signs of slowing down, U.S. Special Operations Forces (SOF) are receivingthousands of light, gliding missiles that are smaller and more powerful than an AGM-114 Hellfire and fired from a Lockheed C-130 Hercules above the modern battlefield.

In recent years, insurgent groups have outsmarted American precision-guided weapons launched from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with fast traveling vehicles. However, a new powerful gliding munition can chase down and destroy these fast-moving targets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This shift in weapons used by Special Ops, simply manifests the grim reality that the US government and military is going to be at war against those countries whose resources they want to expropriate, to which the US government has utterly no moral right, and define in what currencies they will be sold, perpetually.

"WarMerika: IT'S FANTASTIC!!" (A take on dialogue from Hotshots Part Deux, but nonetheless, very painfully real right now.)

Iranian Media Speculates About Possible Death of Saudi Crown Prince

The apparent disappearance of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman from the public eye has led several Iranian media outlets to wonder if one of the most powerful men in the kingdom might’ve been killed during an attempted coup last month.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was allegedly hit by two bullets during the April 21 attack on the royal palace in Riyadh and may actually be dead as he has not appeared in public since the incident, Kayhan newspaper reports citing "a secret service report sent to the senior officials of an unnamed Arab state."

As Press TV points out, no new photo or video of bin Salman has been released by Saudi authorities since that day, and the prince "was not even seen on camera when new US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made his maiden visit to Riyadh in late April."

Suspect in Northland shootings, now facing more charges, could also face deportation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The man who told police he was the suspect in three Northland shootings and who is in the country illegally could soon be deported once again.

But that could change if Pompa-Rascon is charged in the murder of a well-known KC tattoo artist that happened May 11.

The 41-year-old suspect is in the country illegally from Mexico having crossed the border four times.

Senate Panel Endorses Gina Haspel, Despite Her Facilitation of Torture

The Senate Intelligence Committee voted 10-5 to support Gina Haspel’s nomination today, despite the fact that her facilitation of torture should disqualify her from assuming the role of CIA director.

Next the full Senate will make a final decision on Haspel’s nomination in a vote that is expected to take place next week but could occur as early as tomorrow.

In her testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on May 9, Haspel insisted that the CIA’s interrogation program during the Bush administration was legal. Haspel, a 33-year CIA veteran, argued that it could not be determined whether torture was effective to gain intelligence. She refused to state categorically that torture is immoral. And she never condemned the torture program in which she participated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Haspel wins the nomination of the Senate on this appointment, consider the international rules of law having completely thrown out by the Trump Administration. We will then witness more continuous US-led wars for resources, to which this country has absolutely no moral right, and the return to the draft, both for our young men... and young women.

And with that will come more waterboarding, and more torture, and more abuses both at home and abroad.

'He was my whole world': Palestinians mourn killing of loved ones

Gaza Strip - Nisma Abdelqader still can't believe her 18-year-old son is dead.

Israeli soldiers shot Bilal al-Ashram, who was completing his last year of high school, in the head while he was participating in protests in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

With tears streaming from her swollen eyes, Nisma described her first-born as her "whole world".

"He was my support system," she said. Bilal was the eldest of her eight children and held the family together in the absence of her husband, who has been working in Jordan for the past six years.

Nisma said she tried to stop Bilal from participating in the mass protests on Gaza's eastern border along the highly militarised fence with Israel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These assassinations, done by IDF snipers, sometimes from 100 yards away, have had the result of general villification of, and disgust with, Tel Aviv from around the world.

And since Israel simply ignores international outrage at this anger, the only thing which may cause an end to this behaviour, is international support of the BDS movement. The language of economics... is a language the Israeli government understands well, which is why they are so terrified of this movement, because it can well undermine the current Israeli government.

IDF Spox: Israel Failed to Minimize Gaza Casualties

Speaking to the Jewish Federations of North America, Israeli Army spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus conceded that the military had failed in efforts to minimize Gaza casualties earlier this week, and had effectively handed Hamas a PR ‘knockout’ victory.

Opening fire on protesters during Nakba Day on the Gaza border, Israeli forces killed 61 Palestinians and wounded thousands. Though Israeli political officials have defended the killings, Lt. Col. Conricus admitted that some of the Palestinians were hit “by mistake.”

Conricus said that all the screaming and smoke made it a chaotic environment, and while the Israeli troops are disciplined and professional, While he generally defended the idea of shooting at the protesters near the border, he said mistakes were made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The optics of these assassinations .... were absolutely horrific.

And although Israel is shielded by the US government geopolitically and militarily, from this massacre, those optics are going to make suppport for the BDS movement against Israel, grow by leaps and bounds.

North Korea Livid as Trump Administration Suggests ‘Libya Model’ for Denuclearization

There aren’t really examples of nations with substantial nuclear arsenals giving them up as part of a broad negotiated settlement and it working out. North Korea’s denuclearization, then, is very much uncharted territory. The Trump Administration, however, insists on drawing parallels to Libya.

National Security Adviser John Bolton in particular is trying to draw this comparison, even though there are obvious, dramatic differences between the two situations. North Korea is also furious about the Trump Administration’s talk of Libya, and it’s not hard to see why.

Libya never had functional nuclear weapons, and gave up its equipment in 2003 in hopes of ending its international isolation and reforming its image. North Korea’s interest in diplomatic engagement is one commonality, but makes it a particularly poor example, as Libya never really enjoyed much of a reward.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the article failed to mention was Ghadaffi's assassination which resulted in it's regime change!!

Nervous man with missing teeth approached man at bus stop 5 minutes before 1 October massacre, had foreknowledge

Several minutes before the 1 October massacre commenced, a man sitting at a bus stop near Mandalay Bay was approached by a nervous red-haired man wearing black clothing who appeared to have foreknowledge of what was about to go down at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival where 58 people lost their lives, an police report filed several days after the shooting suggests.

A DOZEN GOOGLERS QUIT OVER GOOGLE'S MILITARY DRONE CONTRACT

Google's "Project Maven" is supplying machine-learning tools to the Pentagon to support drone strikes; the project has been hugely divisive within Google, with employees pointing out that the company is wildly profitable and doesn't need to compromise on its ethics to keep its doors open; that the drone program is a system of extrajudicial killing far from the battlefield; and that the firm's long-term health depends on its ability to win and retain the trust of users around the world, which will be harder if Google becomes a de facto wing of the US military.

A dozen googlers have put their money where their mouths are, publicly resigning over the contract; 4,000 more googlers have signed an open letter to the company's CEO asking him to cancel the contract.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Google's reputation is already in tatters; looking at what it has done with its data, and the algorithms it uses to suppress certain ways of looking at issues, it is obvious that its leadership has the morals of a dead tree stump (and trust me, I WILL get letters from dead tree stumps on this!!)

TRUMP'S FAMILY APPLAUDS ZIONIST MASSACRE OF PALESTINIANS IN GAZA

At some settler event in the capital of Palestine Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, mentioned today's Gaza massacre in which Israeli soldiers murdered at least 52 and maimed 1,200 unarmed Palestinians. He accused them of being the guilty ones because they protest against the Zionist theft and occupation of their land:

"As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the solution."
The White House omitted that sentence in its official transcript. In its daily press briefing the White House called the murder committed by the Zionist army "a propaganda attempt" by Hamas and Palestinians.

In response to today's massacre South Africa recalled its ambassador from Israel. It is so far the only country which did so. South Africa knows apartheid and colonial violence. It no longer condones it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kushner is yet another wretched Israeli apologist, condemning the Palestinians for Israeli occupation, and who deeply wishes that Tel Aviv would be allowed to move forward with its own "Final Solution" against all Palestinians, which would be the elimination of every one of them from the face of this earth.

He does, however, appear to have the horse sense to understand, that the optics of such a move would make Israel even more of a pariah state on the international stage than it is already, if that is conceivably possible.

Erdan calls to resume targeted killings of Hamas leaders

The targeted killing of Hamas leaders is part of the solution for the situation in the Gaza Strip, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan asserted on Tuesday morning in an interview with Ynet.

"It's time for the heads of Hamas to pay a personal price for organizing these terror attacks," Erdan said. "The heads of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar and others, have been talking about being willing to be killed near the border fence—let them."

"We need to go back to targeted killings, and they need to go back to hiding underground and fearing for their lives, not organizing the masses to carry out terror attacks," the minister added.

But we are speaking here about mass killing for killing’s sake, to sow chaos and alarm, among civilians, too. Since when do we send donkeys carrying bombs to blow up in marketplaces?”

Haspel Nomination: Torture? Let’s Also Not Forget the CIA’s Core Program of Assassination

Proponents of assassination assert that since the CIA and the Pentagon are assassinating foreigners, that particular restriction doesn’t apply. They say that the Constitution applies only here in the continental United States.

But that’s not what the restriction itself states. The restriction states “No person.” The framers of the Fifth Amendment obviously had a mastery over the English language. If they had wanted the restriction on murder to apply only to American citizens, they would have written, “No person except foreign citizens shall be deprived of life without due process of law.” Their intent clearly was to prohibit the federal government from murdering anyone.

Brutal Murder Spree Of Ukrainian Millionaires Continues

Kiev media have confirmed reports about the death of Ukrainian citizens in Montenegro, who lived and had business in the Balkan country. Vasyl Kirilich, the head of the department of the consular service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, confirmed the Ukrainian citizenship of the deceased.

The body of Ukrainian citizen Anastasia Lashmanova was found in the evening of May 11 in her apartment in the Montenegrin city of Kotor, with severe stab wounds. The assessment showed that she died almost immediately after receiving them. The assets in Montenegro, which belonged to the deceased, are estimated at about 105 million euros (more than three billion hryvnia).

Natalie Portman Boycotts Israeli Prize; Right Wing Goes Ballistic

Actress Natalie Portman, a strong supporter of Israel, has come under vicious attack for criticizing that country’s leadership. She now joins the club of scholars, journalists, and political leaders who are vilified by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his right-wing cohorts.

Portman was born in Jerusalem, and although her family left Israel when she was only three, she became fluent in Hebrew. She is a dual citizen of Israel and the United States.

While studying at Harvard, she became a research assistant for right-wing Zionist Alan Dershowitz. She directed and starred in a feature film presenting the Jewish side of the 1948 war that established the Israeli state.

So Portman is an unlikely candidate for vilification by conservative Jews. Here’s what happened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Natalie Portman has just rocketed in my respect level for her, both as an artist, and as a Jewish woman who wants to see peace in Israel. I support her in this, completely.

But I can guarantee her this: there will be a price to pay.

She can now expect that roles will become more difficult to come by, as the Israeli right wing attempts to crucify her, and hang her out to dry, artistically and economically. I can only hope that she, and her husband, have been careful guardians of the money she has earned in previous films, to get them through what may be a difficult economic period for them.

MAPPING ERIK PRINCE'S PRIVATE MERCENARY EMPIRE

(Authored by Ty Joplin via Albawaba.com)

Erik Prince is the modern architect of private military firms

His latest venture is in training security personnel in China

But he's been all over the world, outsourcing militaries to cheap labor markets

Al Bawaba has provided a partial map to track Erik Prince's activities over the years.

Erik Prince, the brain behind the infamous private military firm Blackwater, is now in China training security forces.

Prince is partially responsible for modernizing the private army for the post 9/11 world, outsourcing militaries to cheap, specialized labor pools and skirting traditional regulations meant to ensure accountability for armed forces.

His journey from hiring mercenaries to help bolster the U.S. occupation in Iraq to China is long, dizzying and includes stops around the world to train Colombian mercenaries to help make a private army for the U.A.E. and outfitting crop duster planes with missiles to be fired at Armenians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From a business standpoint, what Prince has done is to have seen a need, and filled it.

But what deeply concerns me here is a lack of standards, where the ends always justify the means; a lack of true morality; and a lack of accountability in the actions of Prince's mercs.

Israel Will Assassinate Syria’s Assad if He Allows Iran to Operate in Syria? Israeli Minister of Energy

Israel will assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad if he continues to allow close ally Iran to operate in Syria, the Israeli energy minister has warned.

Yuval Steinitz made the warning to Israeli news website Ynet on Monday, amid a war of words between Tehran and Tel Aviv over suspected Israeli air raids in Syria targeting Iranian fighters.

“If Assad allows Iran to turn Syria into a military base against us and attack us on Syrian soil, he must know that will mean his end,” Steinitz said.

“He will not remain ruler of Syria. It’s unacceptable that Assad sits quietly in his palace, rebuilding his regime while allowing Syria to be turned into a base for attacks on Israel,”

“Assad should realise his actions will bear a price,” he added.

Journalists in Syria on the US Drone ‘Kill List’

Two journalists have today filed federal court cases in the United States to challenge their inclusion on a classified US “Kill List”, Reprieve said in a statement.

Bilal Abdul Kareem, an American citizen and journalist working in Syria, escaped being killed by drone strike on five occasions, including two strikes on cars he was travelling in. Two additional strikes were executed on his independent news agency, On the Ground News, while he was working in the studio.

Ahmad Zaidan (image on the right), a senior reporter with Al Jazeera has appeared in a top secret SKYNET document, a US computer programme which has classified him as an Al-Qaeda courier based on “metadata”. Zaidan was the first person to interview Osama Bin Laden, Al-Qaeda’s former leader in the 1990s.

An elite FBI hostage rescue team and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department trained back in 2011 for a high-rise active shooter scenario much like the 1 October massacre in which a highly-trained FBI sniper made the proverbial kill shot by striking a rubber dummy that was placed inside a broken hotel window from a tactical helicopter that was hovering over the strip, according to a new report published by the Baltimore Sun.

CA SCHOOL MURAL FEATURES TRUMP’S BLOODY, DECAPITATED HEAD ON A SPEAR

Parents and other community members in Chula Vista are fuming over a mural at the MAAC Community Charter School that depicts an Aztec warrior putting a spear through President Donald Trump’s decapitated, bloody head.
KFMB reports:

MAAC Charter, chartered by Sweetwater Union High School District, touts itself as a community school that offers students a unique curriculum in which students learn traditional subjects in relation to real-world issues.

Director Tommy Ramirez says this mural was a part of Battlegroundz, an annual event which highlights the urban art form of street murals to raise money to provide scholarships for seniors.

The mural was among many colorful, spray-painted works on a wall along the back of the school. It depicts an Aztek warrior with a purple skull and tiger helmet adorned with feathers, clutching a spear in his right hand with the severed head of Donald Trump.

“It’s art, but I don’t think it should be there,” parent Marisol Alvarado told KUSI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the alleged "educators" at this school believe that perception ...has to equal reality.

President Obama, and his wife, Michelle, were perceived as the consummate embodiment of "cool"; yet, his authorization of war crimes against the Yemeni people in collusion with the Saudi monarchic dictatorship, coupled with increased US military activities in Iraq and Afghanistan,including extrajudicial assassinations, did not fit that "cool" personna.

Therefore, was he, in essence, given a blank check, both by the alleged media in this country, plus Congress, to do pretty much whatever it was he wanted, including the assassination of Libya's President, for his "crime" of being ready to introduce a gold-backed dinar as the country's national currency?!?

The short answer is, absolutely, yes.

Now, I will grant you, that President Trump on many an occasions, does come off as rather a "blunt instrument", who has become thoroughly absorbed by this country's warmongering military/industrial complex, and truly resembles a ventrilloquist's dummy for Israel's Prime Minister Netnayahu, when it comes to Middle Eastern foreign policy.

And then, there is his upcoming meeting with Kim Jung Il, to discuss denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Color me hopeful here.

But I have to ask myself; do Tommy Ramirez' students understand, at all, what President Trump's predecessor did, and what the ultimate ramifications of President Obama's actions have been, globally?!?

Or was he given a pass by this school district, just for having been "so cool:"?!?

I think that the answer here, is self-explanatory.

HOW WESTERN MEDDLING AND A DUST BOWL DROUGHT IGNITED SYRIA’S CIVIL WAR

The reported “chemical attack” at Douma, Russia has claimed, was fake news. One U.S. news agency has now confirmed from the location of the reported attack that April 7, 2018 was an uneventful day in this Syrian city and not one single person in Douma corroborated the story of a chemical attack taking place.
It is the latest in a long series of false-flag reports generated about Syria by the United States and forces that oppose the government of President Bashar al Assad. This trickery dates back to at least 2006, when a WikiLeaks cable exposed U.S. political treachery at its very worst; calculated meddling designed to harm the government and population of Syria.

In this article we will review false revelations and calculated moves undertaken by politicians to undermine Syria’s government, which is designed to provide protection to religious minorities and freedom for people of all faiths, who lived securely in Syria until civil war broke out in 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, I fear that the dark spectre of US intervention in Syria is far from over, as indicated by the following report:


23 CIVILIANS KILLED IN SYRIA IN SUSPECTED US COALITION AIR STRIKES

As happened in Iraq, and most probably soon to happen against Iran, this is all about the control of Middle Eastern oil, and in what currencies it will be allowed to be sold.

And the other question which has to be asked is the following; how long will Russia allow this nonsense to continue, without lashing out, militarily?!?

Neocon Bret Stephens Wants Syria’s Assad Assassinated

Bret Stephens is a political commentator who works for The New York Times and NBC News. Stephens was editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post between 2002 and 2004.

His Jewish identity is mentioned hand-in-hand with his political orientation by The Times of Israel: “In criticizing Trump even after his electoral victory, Stephens joins other leading Jewish conservative voices, including Brooks, Jennifer Rubin and William Kristol.” His Jewish identity is pertinent because he is known as a neocon and a strong supporter of Israel. The one seems to reinforce the other. Furthermore, his position on Iraq was criminal and disastrous and now he’s advocating a position on Syria that would also be criminal and disastrous. We should be extremely skeptical of the objectivity of someone like him who comes across as a shill for Israel and the Empire all-in-one.

Conclusive proof of multiple shooters firing simultaneously at Route 91 Harvest Music Festival

Editor’s note: This article must be sent to every major elected official in the government all the way up to the President, as the American people demand answers.

As you may already know, according to the FBI’s official narrative regarding the 1 October shooting, the massacre was carried out by a lone wolf shooter named Stephen Paddock from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite. However, the official narrative fed to the American people by the government couldn’t be further from the truth as irrefutable proof of two shooters has now surfaced, blowing the lid off the FBI, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and mainstream media’s can of lies which they force fed to the public.

JOURNALISTS CHALLENGE THEIR INCLUSION ON A US DRONE ‘KILL LIST’

Two journalists have today filed federal court cases in the United States to challenge their inclusion on a classified US “Kill List”, Reprieve said in a statement. Bilal Abdul Kareem, an American citizen and journalist working in Syria, escaped being killed by drone strike on five occasions, including two strikes on cars he was travelling in. Two additional strikes were executed on his independent news agency, On the Ground News, while he was working in the studio.

Speaking the Unspeakable: The Assassination and Martyrdom of Thomas Merton

Fifty years have elapsed since Thomas Merton died under mysterious circumstances in a cottage at a Red Cross Conference Center outside Bangkok, Thailand where he was attending an international inter-faith monastic conference. The truth behind his death has been concealed until now through the lies and deceptions of a cast of characters, religious, secular, and U.S. governmental, whose actions chill one to the bone. But he has finally found his voice through Hugh Turley and David Martin, who tell the suppressed truth of Merton’s last minutes on earth on December 10, 1968.

'Oswald's KGB handler': New JFK docs fill in some blanks on events around assassination

Just months before President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Texas almost 55 years ago, an FBI field agent sent word back to headquarters on the activities of a Soviet sympathizer named Lee Harvey Oswald.

FBI agent James P. Hosty Jr. wrote to Washington that Oswald “reportedly drank to excess and beat his wife on numerous occasions.”

The memo, dated Sept. 30, 1963, is one of the 19,045 documents released Thursday in what was supposed to be the end of a declassification process that began the year after the Kennedy killing. A law signed in 1992 put it on a 25-year schedule to completion.

But after boasting on Twitter last year that he would release all the JFK assassination documents, President Donald Trump backpedaled last October, giving the CIA and FBI six months to work through the lifting of information still shrouded in secrecy.

Are Palestinian Journalists Being Censored by Murder?

On April 25, Ahmad Abu Hussein became the second Palestinian journalist Israeli snipers shot to death while covering the Great March of Return demonstrations, a series of weekly, massive Palestinian demonstrations demanding the right to return to their lands. Abu Hussein was 24 years old. Just days before, Israeli live ammunition killed 30-year-old Yasser Mourtaja. Like Abu Hussein, he was wearing a large, bright “Press” jacket that made clear he was a reporter.

The organization Reporters Sans Frontieres asserts that the Israeli Occupying Forces’ targeting of journalists is deliberate and systemic. This would be in direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2222 (2015), which states: “impunity for crimes committed against journalists, media professionals and associated personnel in armed conflict remains a significant challenge to their protection and that ensuring accountability for crimes committed against them is a key element in preventing future attacks.”

520 Secret JFK Files to Remain Fully Sealed

The can has been kicked a little farther down the road. When President Trump in October approved the release of previously classified or redacted documents on the JFK assassination, he blocked the release of others over national security concerns and gave federal agencies 180 days to re-review the withheld documents. The review in some cases turned up "identifiable national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns," per a memo written by Trump, who on Thursday said some files would now be kept under wraps until Oct. 26, 2021.

As UK Govt Kills Alfie Evans, Time To Examine The Catholic Catechism On 'Legitinate Defense' Of Life

It's very clear, Christians are not required to merely sit by and submit as they or their families are murdered at the hand of a corrupt tyrannical state. Matter of fact, preservation of one's life is a "grave duty." The catechism slso covers allowable "armed resistance to oppression by political authority." 2264: "...Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow.. Nor is it necessary for salvation that a man omit the act of moderate self-defense to avoid killing the other man, since one is bound to take more care of one's own life than of another's. 2265 Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others..."

UK Sells $445 Million of Arms to Israel, Including Sniper Rifles

Britain has approved the sale of arms to Israel worth $445m since the 2014 Gaza war, including components for drones, combat aircraft and helicopters along with spare parts for sniper rifles, according to figures seen by Middle East Eye.

The government data will raise fresh concerns that British-made weapons are being used by the Israeli military in the Occupied Territories, amid fears that components in sniper rifles used to kill scores of Palestinian civilians in recent weeks could have been made in the UK.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, ya think that was going to happen?!?

Theresa May has the morals of a dead tree-stump; MI5 and MI 6 know precisely that UK's weaponry is being used to assassinate Palestinians; but as long as the money is getting raked in by the UK's military /Industrial Complex, the British government chooses to remain collectively deaf and blind to the carnage these weaons are causing.

Israelis Continue to Open Fire on Gaza Protestors: An Eyewitness Account

According to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR), the Palestinian death toll since March 30, 2018 “has risen to 33, including 4 children and 1 photojournalist, and the number of those wounded has risen to 2,436, including 410 children, 66 women, 22 journalists and 9 paramedics.”

There have been no Israeli casualties.

According to PCHR, on Friday, April 20th, Israeli snipers “killed 4 Palestinian civilians, including a child, and wounded 274 others, including 41 children, 6 women and 1 journalist, in addition to hundreds suffering tear gas inhalation, including PCHR’s fieldworkers who were documenting the Israeli forces’ suppression of the entirely peaceful demonstrations near the border fence with Israel, east of the Gaza Strip.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israeli government justifies killing child protesters in Gaza: They’re not in school

Mohammed Ayoub was the last to be killed: last Friday at 4:30 PM.

Israeli education minister Naftali Bennett was asked on Sunday if Israel had not gone too far when it killed Ayoub, as Orly Noy reports at +972:

Army Radio morning show host Razi Barkai asked Education Minister Naftali Bennett if “we had gone too far” in killing 15-year-old Mohammed Ayoub during the Gaza return march protests last Friday.

“If he had gone to school like every other kid,” Bennett responded, “there wouldn’t have been a problem.” That is what Israel’s education minister had to say about the murder of a child – killed by a sniper’s bullet – during a protest.

This is now a theme of Israeli propaganda surrounding the killings in Gaza: the children are to blame for not being in school, or not reading books.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Israel, where genocide against Palestinian children is considered business as usual, there appears to be a real disconnect between what the snipers are doing, and their killing of children with bullets, when all the Palestinian kids have are rocks to throw.

But then, what can one reasonably expect from a viciously apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

TOP SECRET: DOD BUILDING $110 MILLION DRONE BASE IN NIGER

If you thought America’s overseas wars had reached their limit - think again.

The United States Department of Defense (DoD) is building a new $110 million drone base in Niger, adding to its existing footprint of more than 800 military bases in more than 70 countries, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

On Monday, the AP detailed in a report that the U.S. Air Force is constructing a base for weaponized drones, the newest front in America’s expanding foreign wars “against the growing extremist threat in Africa’s vast Sahel region.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; just how many Niger, and other African citizens, the US military intends to assassinate via drone strike, in its unending quest to expropriate raw materials and resources to which the US government has utterly no moral right?!?!?

Saudi Warplanes Attack Wedding Party in NW Yemen, Killing Dozens

Saudi warplanes carried out an overnight attack against a wedding party in the Yemeni town of Hajjah. Two missiles struck the site, and killed many civilians. Medics initially reported 33 were killed and scores wounded. Other officials put the figure as high as 50 slain.

The civilians were mostly women and children, who were in a tent set up for the wedding party. The bride was also killed in the strike, and the groom was among the wounded. Initial reports called the strike a US-Saudi action, but it was later confirmed to be of Saudi origin.

Saudi coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki was quoted by CNN as saying that there is an investigation into the attack. They refused to comment further until the investigation has been completed. No other officials offered any indication why the wedding was attacked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis, guided by their B.O.Y. (AKA, the Butcher of Yemen, Prince Mohammed bin Salman), are magnificently adept at genocide, and slaughter of the innocent in Yemen.

And of course, under our current, and very uniquely American "Dear Leader", with his very own Personality Cult, President Trump, we are aiding and abbetting Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

I don't know about the rest of those who read this blog, but I am sick, tired, and profoundly morally uncomfortable, being a citizen of a country which indulges in war crimes around the world, as we are.

But there are very few more glaring examples of such war crimes, than the US/Saudi genocide of Yemen.

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I will continue to witness to what is going on here, until my last breath.

CITIZEN SCIENTIST WHO HELPED EXPOSE FLINT WATER CRISIS HONORED WITH GOLDMAN PRIZE

A stay-at-home mother of four and trained medical assistant who led the effort to expose the water crisis in Flint, Michigan has recieved a prestigious award that honors grassroots environmental activists from across the globe.

LeeAnne Walters is the North American recipient of this year's Goldman Environmental Prize, which is awarded to one activist from each of the world's six inhabited continents.

After Walters's eyelashes started falling out, her twin toddlers broke out in a rash, and her teenage son started experiencing vision and kidney problems in 2014, she filed a formal complaint. Months later, in February 2015, local officials tested lead levels in her water—which, they determined, were dangerously high.

How Mossad carries out assassinations

The killing of 35-year-old Palestinian scientist Fadi al-Batsh in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur has taken the wraps off a covert programme of targeted killings of Palestinians deemed a threat by Israel.

Al-Batsh studied electrical engineering in Gaza before going on to earn a PhD in the same subject in Malaysia.

He specialised in power systems and energy saving and had published a number scientific papers on the subject.

Gaza's ruling Hamas said al-Batsh was an important member of the group and accused Israel's Mossad intelligence agency of being behind Saturday's incident.

Calling him a "loyal" member, Hamas said al-Batsh was a "scientist of Palestine's youth scholars" who made "important contributions" and participated in international forums in the field of energy.

Study finds that animal vaccines have no safeguards against contamination and contribute to serious pet diseases like cancer

Most of us are incredibly attached to our pets. As such, we do everything we can to prevent them from getting ill, including getting them vaccinated at the intervals recommended on the schedules we receive from their veterinarians. What we might not realize, however, is that in getting them vaccinated we may be exposing them to very dangerous retroviruses, some of which have been linked to cancer and other fatal animal diseases.

Palestinian scholar killed in Kuala Lumpur, family blames Mossad

A Palestinian scholar has been shot dead by two assailants in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur, as he was heading to a mosque for dawn prayers, local police said.

Fadi al-Batsh, a 35-year-old Palestinian academic and member of Hamas, was instantly killed by the unknown gunmen in a residential neighbourhood of the capital on Saturday.

Al-Batsh's father told Al Jazeera that he accuses Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad, of being behind his son's killing and called on the Malaysian authorities to look into who carried out the "assassination" as soon as possible.

Israeli minister warns of resuming targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders

Israeli Minister of Transport, Road Safety and Intelligence Israel Katz warned of resuming targeted assassinations of Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip, Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported on Friday.

On Twitter, Katz wrote: “Hamas has to know that any attack on Israeli army commanders on the borders of Gaza would renew the targeted killing of Hamas leaders.”

He added: “The warning of Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine to open fire by snipers from Gaza at army commanders is a red line.”

Since March 30, which marks Palestine Land Day, the Palestinians have been peacefully staging protests along the eastern Gaza borders, calling for the implementation of the UN Resolution 194 which stipulates the return of Palestine refugees to their homes, as well as to lift the 11-year-old Israeli blockade in Gaza.

''7 Days In Entebbe,' Film About Israeli Hostage Rescue, Is Actually Worth Seeing

I had seen the trailer twice at theatres, and it mentioned "the plight of the Palestinian people" while showing a hijacked airline, so it caught my attention. I already knew that Netanyahu's older brother was the only soldier killed in the raid to rescue the hostages in 1976. The rescue took place in Uganda while this country celebrated our 200th anniversary, on July 4, 1976. I fully expected this movie to be a propaganda piece, but was very pleasantly surprised. Very good acting and the Jewish director, who consulted with many who were actually involved in the rescue, presents an accurate historical recount of events, as well as examines the opinions of the "terrorists" on the struggle between Palestine & Israel. For that reason alone, this film deserves our patronage.

(1993) George H. W. Bush Attends Funeral For Waco ATF Agent, "this honorable man, killed by weird cultists"

In 1995, George H. W. Bush wrote an angry letter resigning from the NRA, stating, in part, "In 1993, I attended the wake for A.T.F. agent Steve Willis, another dedicated officer who did his duty. I can assure you that this honorable man, killed by weird cultists, was no Nazi... your broadside against Federal agents deeply offends my own sense of decency and honor; and it offends my concept of service to country. It indirectly slanders a wide array of government law enforcement officials, who are out there, day and night, laying their lives on the line for all of us."

Joe Biden in 1993: No improper motive by feds at Waco, the Davidians "committed suicide"

In reviewing the excellent 1997 documentary Waco: The Rules of Engagement, the final minutes of the film reveal Congressional testimony from the hearings on Waco in which Biden and a gaggle of other disgusting government apologists pronounce that the government was blameless in the entire ordeal. This despite the fact that the Davidian survivors who were charged with murder of federal agents afterwards were acquitted of all charges.

My wife and I were in the Waco area so we stopped by and took some video of the current site of the 'Waco' tragedy, for a virtual tour of what the place looks like over two decades after the siege. Upon our arrival we were surreally greeted by two very nice labs... On April 19, 1993 the government slaughtered 82 innocent men, women, and children at the property. One year later, the survivors were acquitted of all murder charges in the deaths of four federal agents. The jury found that the Davidians acted in self defense. This is a little known fact by the general public, who are basically told that a pervert child molester and his cult group committed mass suicide.

BY US STANDARDS, AMERICA SHOULD’VE BEEN BOMBED FOR WHAT HAPPENED IN TEXAS, 25 YEARS AGO TODAY

When reports claimed that a chemical attack killed 70 civilians in Syria earlier this month, the Trump administration was quick to place the blame on the Syrian government—despite having no evidence—and they claimed that the horror of such an atrocity deserved retaliation in the form of targeted airstrikes.

IF THE IDEA THAT A GOVERNMENT WOULD USE CHEMICALS TO KILL DOZENS OF ITS OWN CITIZENS IS SO ABHORRENT THAT THE U.S. WOULD RISK WORLD WAR 3 TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST IT, THEN IT MUST MEAN THAT THE U.S. WOULD NEVER DO THE SAME THING TO ITS OWN CITIZENS, FOR FEAR THAT IT COULD BE SUBJECTED TO A SIMILAR RESPONSE FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY—RIGHT?

However, on April 19, 1993, there was a government that used chemical weapons on its own people, and nearly 80 men, women, and children died as a result. But the attack was not carried out by the Syrian government and it did not happen in the Middle East. It took place in Waco, Texas, and it was perpetrated by the United States government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was done under the watch of our Pervy Prez Clinton, courtesy of his AG, Bloody Janet Reno.

This was slaughter and genocide, pure and simple, to prove that the Federal Government had the right to slaughter its citizens with extreme prejudice, even if they had absolutely not done anything wrong, no matter the lies spread, or the horrific chemical which was used to kill them.

Abuses and Failures of U.S. Correctional Institutions: South Carolina’s Lethal Prison Riot that Left Seven Dead

Along with the seven prisoners who were killed, whose names and photos were published by the South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC), another 17 prisoners were wounded and are reportedly being treated. According to the SCDC’s official account of the incident posted on Facebook and Twitter, the fighting between prisoners lasted almost eight hours. At a press conference, SCDC Director Bryan Stirling said the lethal riot centered around rival gangs and contraband cell phones

“What we believe from initial investigation is that this was all about territory, about contraband, about cell phones,” Stirling said. “These folks are fighting about real money and real territory while they’re incarcerated.”

He also called on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to block signals from the cell phone tower located near the prison, saying that was something the Department of Corrections would be discussing with the FCC in the weeks to come.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

American correctional institutions are engineered to fail, and to guarantee that the rates of recidivism remains high, to justify fat budgets for these departments.

Report Documents U.S. Recidivism Rates for Federal Prisoners

The article goes on to state:

Drawing on data on more than 25,400 former inmates who were either released outright from federal prisons or placed on probation in 2005, the 60-page report found almost half (49.3%) had, within the next eight years, been arrested again, whether for a new offense or for violating conditions of their parole or release. Among the offenders released or paroled in 2005, during the same period nearly a third (31.7%) had been re-convicted, with 24.7% of them also re-incarcerated."

Do these numbers look like the numbers of a corrections system which actually works?!?

The short answer is, Hell, no!!

By contrast, one only needs to look at the Norwegian prison system to see what is possible:

The most successful prison system in the worl is also the most radically humane

What we see here, is a far lower recivism rate (20%), and a real attempt at prisoner rehabilitation, rather than punishment. And it actually costs a lot less than US taxpayers shell out for a failed system.

Britain admits OPCW did not confirm ‘essential evidence’ on origin of Skripal poison

The British delegation to the OPCW has admitted that international chemical weapons inspectors did not confirm the origin of the nerve agent used in the Salisbury ex-spy poisoning.
The UK’s representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Peter Wilson, said identifying the nerve agent is an “essential part of the investigation,” and that the OPCW has identified neither its origin nor the laboratory where it was produced.

"But of course, while the identification of the nerve agent used is an essential piece of technical evidence in our investigation, neither DSTL’s analysis, nor the OPCW’s report, identifies the country or laboratory of origin of the agent used in this attack," he said.

The British government claims a Soviet-era nerve agent that has become known as Novichok was used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and accused Russia of producing and deploying it.

Translation: Prime Minister May lied about this, to demonize Russia, when those lies could not be backed up by solid research.

AUTONOMOUS DRONES WILL SOON DECIDE WHO TO KILL

The United States Army wants to develop a system that can be quickly integrated and deployed into its weaponized drone fleet to automatically Detect, Recognize, Classify, Identify (DRCI) and target enemy combatants and vehicles using artificial intelligence (AI). This is an impressive leap forward, whereas humans still operate current military drones, this technology could foster a new era of autonomous drones conducting operations in hybrid wars — without human oversight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not think, for one moment, that this technology will not be used domestically against peaceful dissidents in this country, who have the nerve to question this government's agendas or motives.

Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Who Questioned Parkland Shooting’s Gun Control Agenda ‘Dies Unexpectedly’

Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Fitzsimons, a fit 42-year old who was known to question the gun control agenda of the Parkland school shooting, “died unexpectedly” earlier this month.

Weeks before he died, Fitzsimons had taken to social media to criticize calls for gun control after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting, including posting a meme of student gun control activist David Hogg posing as Hitler.

New book alleges Tony Blair blocked Dr David Kelly inquest 'within minutes of body being found'

Dr David Kelly hit the headlines after he let slip to a journalist that Tony Blair's claim that Saddam Hussein's Iraq could deploy Weapons of Mass Destruction in 45 minutes was, at best, "dubious".

The claim was a major plank of the former Prime Minister's argument to join the USA in an invasion of the country.

The case has sparked a number of conspiracy theories that Dr Kelly was murdered by the intelligence services.

Now in his new book, An Inconvenient Death - How The Establishment Covered Up The David Kelly Affair, Mr Goslett investigates the actions of the Government after Dr Kelly, 59, was found dead at Harrowdown Hill, two miles from his home in Southmoor, Oxfordshire, on July 18 2003.

Russia cannot limit Israel's actions in Syria: Lieberman

Israel will not accept limitations on its "actions" in Syria from Russia or any other country, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Monday, a week after a deadly raid attributed to the Jewish state.

"We will maintain total freedom of action. We will not accept any limitation when it comes to the defence of our security interests," Lieberman said in a video interview with the Walla news site in response to a question on Russia's criticism of the recent strike.

"But we do not want to provoke the Russians. We have an open line of communication at the level of senior officers. The Russians understand us and the fact is that for years we have managed to avoid friction with them" in Syria.

Lieberman again accused Israel's main enemy Iran of seeking to entrench itself militarily in neighbouring Syria and threaten his country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lieberman has a PhD ( Sh*t Piled Higher and Deeper) when it comes to these brazenly hubristic threats against Russia and Iran.

I would politely suggest that he may want to rethink his public dissing of Russia at this point; Russia understands how to respond asymetrically, and there will, most probably, not be a thing Tel Aviv will be able to do to prevent this.

US IS ‘LOCKED AND LOADED,’ TRUMP WARNS OF MORE STRIKES ON SYRIA

The warning came via US ambassador Nikki Haley at an emergency UN Security Council meeting Saturday, a day after the US, UK and France struck three Syrian sites in response to an alleged chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma last week.

The UN meeting came with some heated exchanges between the American, Russian and Syrian envoys.

Russia’s UN ambassador, Vasily Nebenzia, read out a quote from Russian President Vladimir Putin accusing the US, UK and France of “cynical disdain” in acting without waiting for the OPCW’s findings.

Nebenzia accused the West of “hooliganism” and demanded that it “immediately end its actions against Syria and refrain from them in the future.” “You are not only placing yourselves above international law, but you are trying to rewrite international law,” Nebenzia said.

Nikki Haley claimed the strikes were “justified, legitimate and proportionate.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know how the US government's UN Ambassador Haley could have telegraphed more loudly, and in a more bellicose manner, that the US, the UK, and France are, at this moment, planning more false flags against the Syrian government, as the justification for more strikes against this country.

I would, at this moment in time, like to politely suggest that a war against Russia in Syria is a really, really bad idea; the US military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to guarantee a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia in Syria, because that is precisely one very ugly scenario which could, very quickly, come to fruition.

Russian reporter Borodin dead after mystery fall

A Russian investigative journalist who wrote about the deaths of mercenaries in Syria has died in hospital after falling from his fifth-floor flat.

What did Borodin write?

In recent weeks, the journalist had written about Russian mercenaries known as the "Wagner Group" who were reportedly killed in Syria on 7 February in a confrontation with US forces.

Last week, the outgoing head of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, said that "a couple hundred" Russian mercenaries died in the clash in Deir al-Zour province. The mercenaries were apparently taking part in an attack by pro-Syrian government fighters on the headquarters of a US ally, the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Weeks later Russia admitted that several dozen Russian citizens had been either killed or wounded, but stressed they were not regular soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact he was assassinated by elements of the Russian government, it simply proves that attempting really honest journalism in both the Unhinged Survielled States of Amerika, or in Putin's Russia, can be fatally hazardous to one's health.

Independent Swiss Lab Says Poison Used in Skripal Attack Was Produced in US or UK

Skripal is a Russian double agent who WORKED FOR Christopher Steele’s company in England. Steele was behind the fake Russian dossier on Trump.

Russia denied the poison attack.

The US expelled 60 Russian diplomats following the poison attack after the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, England.

TERRORIST OR JOURNALIST? WHO REALLY WAS THE SLAIN GAZAN YASER MURTAJA? Israel is accused of fabricating allegations about the slain Gazan.

he general secretary of the International Federation of Journalists accused Israeli authorities of “fabricating lies to justify murder” in the case of a Palestinian journalist who was killed last Friday during protests in Gaza. Others have called into question Israel’s assertions on Wednesday that Yaser Murtaja was a Hamas member.

Murtaja, a 30-year-old photographer and cameraman, was killed near Khan Yunis during the second Friday of the Palestinian “Great March of Return” on the Gaza border. He was wearing a blue journalist-style flak jacket marked with the word “press.”

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said that Murtaja was flying a drone near the border. However, Palestinians present claimed that journalists were targeted by IDF snipers during the clashes and that he did not use his drone that day. MKs MKs Ksenia Svetlova and Zouheir Bahloul called for an investigation and the IDF said it was looking into the incident.

Virginia Senator Richard Black: CIA Is Pushing False Flag In Syria - Claims Hillary Ordered Murder Of Chris Stevens In Benghazi

Our friend Bobby Powell conducted this interview two months ago with Virginia Senator Richard Black. It's not like we haven't been telling people for years the truth about Syria and how the only real problem there is the US funding, training and arming Islamic jihadis to overthrow the Assad regime. And, despite a new president who told you that we didn't need to be there, he's already launched missiles into the country over rumors of an Assad attack with no evidence and is apparently getting ready to attack again with no evidence and no congressional authority as outlined in our Constitution.

Virginia Senator Dick Black exposes the WMD false flag in Syria, which was really carried out by the remnants of ISIS and not Syrian President Assad.

Think. Why would Assad use chemical weapons on civilians, knowing that it would draw world-wide condemnation and US intervention, when the jihadists are surrounded and on the brink of annihilation?
