VOLCANIC POLLUTION

Excuse the global warming crap!

Volcanic activity, is an example of a non-anthropogenic source of international pollutions. Volcanic eruptions release large quantities of greenhouse gases and other aerosols into the atmosphere, these gases form massive clouds which accumulate in the atmosphere; this process is referred to as outgassing or offgassing In addition to magma particulates, known as ash or pyroclastic flow, volcanic eruptions release water vapor(H20), carbon dioxide(CO2), sulphur dioxide(SO2), hydrogen sulfide(H2S), carbon monoxide(CO), hydrogen chloride(HCl), and hydrogen fluoride(HF) into the atmosphere.

Ex-UK spy Christopher Steele ordered to appear for video deposition in London

In a procedural ruling Friday before the High Court of Justice, Queen's Bench Division, former British spy Christopher Steele was ordered to appear for a videotaped deposition in London on June 18 for ongoing civil litigation brought against Buzzfeed by a Russian technology executive, Aleksej Gubarev.

A last-ditch effort by Buzzfeed's legal team was denied today in their efforts to expand and question Steele about "the dossier as a whole" instead of a more limited area of questioning in the ongoing civil litigation in the UK.

In the 15-page ruling obtained and reviewed by Fox News, Mr. Justice Jay wrote that the Buzzfeed appeal "should be dismissed on all grounds."

"It's Over" - Biggest 'Russiagate' Cheerleaders Start Covering Their Tracks

As months turn into nearly two years and no solid evidence emerges to nail Russia for nabbing Election 2016, some big Russiagate cheerleaders are starting to cover their tracks.

The best evidence that Russia-gate is sinking beneath the waves is the way those pushing the pseudo-scandal are now busily covering their tracks.

The Guardian complains that “as the inquiry has expanded and dominated the news agenda over the last year, the real issues of people’s lives are in danger of being drowned out by obsessive cable television coverage of the Russia investigation” – as if The Guardian’s own coverage hasn’t been every bit as obsessive as anything CNN has come up with.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meuller HAS NO PUBLIC CONFIDENCE, PERIOD, END OF DISCUSSION.

This has become one of the most horrifically, and corruptedly, politicized moments in the history of the FBI, and President Trump should sack the lot of them.

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".

The new target of Israeli police: Palestinian flags

There have been increasing reports of a police crackdown on flying the Palestinian flag in public even though there is nothing illegal about displaying the flag.

During the dedication ceremony for the new American embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, about 200 left-wing and Israeli Arab demonstrators on a nearby street protested the transfer of the embassy. Other than a neighborhood resident who tried to spray them with water from her balcony, the demonstration, which was led by Arab Knesset members and members of the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, was proceeding uneventfully. There were no confrontations with nearby right-wing counterdemonstrators or with the police who surrounded them and separated them from their ideological opponents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In a somewhat ironic twist, with regard to justice for Palestinians, Israel's IDF has become the 21st century's equivalent to German Storm Troopers in World War II.

Putin Vows to Stand Up to US Govt’s Attempts to Block German Pipeline

EU nations, particularly Germany, were already interested in getting closer to Russia in their joint efforts to save the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran. Another issue driving them together is the planned Nord Stream 2 pipeline, connecting Russian natural gas supplies to Germany.

Europe in general, and Germany in particular, need that Russian natural gas. The US opposes the pipeline, however, for deliberately circumventing Ukrainian territory. Russian President Vladimir Putin, visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said that Russia will stand up to US attempts to block the project.

He’s not alone. German Economic Minister Peter Altmaier represented US opposition to the pipeline as “America first” policy attempting to secure US exports. He warned Europe would defend its own interests in the matter, even if they conflict with America’s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What happens when all of Europe is using cryptocurrencies to circumvent US santions, in order to be able to access Russian and Iranian oil?!?

Because, were I a betting person, that is what I would bet this is where Europe will be going, and very, very soon.

US government's "thuggocracy" tactics will not work here, unless President Trump is willing to wage physical war on all countries refusing to honor US sanctions against Russia and Iran.

I would very politely like to suggest to him that perhaps, such a world war is not an answer to his personal frustrations at getting snubbed by Europe over Russian and Iranian sanctions,which have no logical reasons to exist in the first place.

BEX ALERT - Bill Maher and Bari Weiss Cruelly Blame Palestinians for Gaza Massacre

During the embassy opening, a taunting event all but designed to inflame tensions, Israeli forces brutally massacred at least 58 Palestinians protesting along the Gaza border—including women and children. Many were killed by sniper fire hundreds of yards away. Weiss, however, saw no connection between the protests and the embassy launch.

“Bill, I love you, but the riots were not caused by the embassy move,” said Weiss. “They’re not linked. When Hamas attacked Israel in 2008, when Hamas attacked Israel in 2012, when it attacked Israel in 2014, the embassy was in Tel Aviv all of those times… They intentionally moved up the day so that it would coincide with the day of the embassy move so that we would all be disgusted and heartbroken when we saw this horrible split-screen of Ivanka Trump, looking like she was at a country club, next to poor, desperate people dying in Gaza.”

“I agree with you,” Maher replied. “They planned that. Absolutely.”

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!!

The FBI Informant Who Monitored the Trump Campaign, Stefan Halper, Oversaw a CIA Spying Operation in the 1980 Presidential Election

IG Horowitz Finds FBI, DOJ Broke Law In Clinton Probe, Refers To Prosecutor For Criminal Charges

As we reported on Thursday, a long-awaited report by the Department of Justice's internal watchdog into the Hillary Clinton email investigation has moved into its final phase, as the DOJ notified multiple subjects mentioned in the document that they can privately review it by week's end, and will have a "few days" to craft any response to criticism contained within the report, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks. -WSJ

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will believe this when I see it, but should this be true, and criminal prosecution is brought against Hillary Clinton, it could not possibly be happening to a more deserving woman!! :-)

Iran And Russia Discuss Transacting In Crypto To Avoid International Sanctions

Iran and Russia could start using cryptocurrencies to avoid Western sanctions, Russian news portal RBC reported yesterday, May 17.

Mohammad Reza Pourebrahimi, the head of the Iranian Parliamentary Commission for Economic Affairs, referred to cryptocurrencies as a promising way for both countries to avoid US dollar transactions, as well as a possible replacement of the SWIFT interbank payment system.

At a meeting with Dmitry Mezentsev, the Chair of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy, Pourebrahimi said that they have “engaged the Central Bank of Iran to start developing proposals for the use of cryptocurrency.”

Pourebrahimi added that he discussed this topic in the State Duma's Committee on Economic Policy the day before and that Iran had established cooperation with Russia on this issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I almost have to laugh at the futility of President Trump's sanctions, now that Russia and Iran have found a way around them, as will other European, and Asian nations, dropping the US dollar and using cryptocurrency.

So how is President Trump going to respond to the world's not paying any attention to his sanctioning of Iran and withdrawing from the P5+1, declare war on the rest of the world?!?

FBI Spy-Op Exposed, Trump Campaign Infiltrated By Longtime CIA And MI6 Asset

Following two weeks of mounting speculation over the FBI's so-called "mole" inside the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post published separate accounts on Friday detailing the infiltration of the Trump campaign - a scheme revealed in a Wednesday report by the New York Times in which "at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos." The Wednesday report also disclosed the existence of "Operation Crossfire Hurricane" - the FBI's code name for their early Trump-Russia investigation.

Thanks to Friday's carefully crafted deep-state disclosures by WaPo and the Times, along with actual reporting by the Daily Caller's Chuck Ross, we now know it wasn't a mole at all - but 73-year-old University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, a US citizen, political veteran and longtime US Intelligence asset enlisted by the FBI to befriend and spy on three members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, now we know.

The degree to which the FBI has become politicized has become a disgrace to this country, and has made it a laughing stock around the world, reducing its acronyn to either the Federal Bureau of Intrigue, or the Federal Bureau of Incompetency.

Take your pick.

President Trump now has cause to fire every single agent, scrape out the department, and build it up again with people whose true vocation is to protect citizens of this country from harm.

CALIFORNIA OFFICIALS ARE SPYING ON THEIR CITIZENS WITH CHINESE DRONES

Residents of Sacramento, California, are furious about a secret government drone spying program they say is surveilling their neighborhood from evening hours through the early morning, Sacramento (CBS13) reported.

The mysterious drone(s) is/are “hovering over residential neighborhoods and looking down on homes” in Sacramento’s upper Land Park neighborhood between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to CBS13.

“It just doesn’t feel good,” said Ben Allen. “It hovers around. You don’t know what they’re looking at and monitoring.”

Neighbors say they have heard the drone(s) buzzing overhead at all hours of the night, and well before sunrise.

“The drone would fly over here, come over my neighbor’s house, fly over our house right here,” resident John Mattox told CBS13. “You come home from work, it would be operating, go to bed it was still operating, and this would repeat day after day.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me guess; these two housing communities, Alder Grove, and Marian Vista, are not on the plush side of town.

Unemployment, no matter what official statistics say, is still very high, because low wage jobs have been offshored/outsourced.

Poverty, coupled with unemployment, leads to desperation, driving the presence of gangs, crime, and drugs.

All the surveillance in the world will not make this go away, even though it may mean charging and convictions for what are essentially minor crimes; this is not "progress".

Progress in avoiding these kinds of situations, translates into education for jobs which will exist, and do exist, in the 21st century; unskilled labor has now become replaced by robots, so there is no room, or need, for that. There are skilled programs which require a short certification time, and which will pay well enough to get a leg up.

This is what the city of Sacramento should be doing.

Of course, that... would be logical.

PEOPLE WHO EXPRESS OUTRAGE OVER TSA GROPING CAN NOW BE PUT ON A WATCHLIST

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is forming a new watchlist specifically for people who give its agents a hard time during security screenings, and are deemed “unruly” passengers who act in ways that TSA agents find “offensive.”

The New York Times obtained a five-page directive recently published by the agency announcing the establishment of the watchlist or “95 list,” which is a new program that began in February.

The directive, which was reportedly issued by Darby LaJoye, TSA’s assistant administrator for security operations, states that “An intent to injure or cause physical pain is not required, nor is an actual physical injury.”

The criteria that could land a person on the list is extremely vague and could include anything from loitering near the checkpoint to having a verbal altercation with a TSA agent. The directive also suggested that anyone who presents “challenges to the safe and effective completion of screening” could be added to the list.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a completely peaceful, non-violent answer to this, where it is practical; never take any public transportation, including planes, ever again.

Does anyone remember the economic impact of the Montgomery Bus Boycott back in the 50s?!? The Montgomery Bus Boycott

When the owners of public transport realize that such a move, on the part of a huge number of travelers, may bankrupt them, perhaps they will prevail upon the head of the TSA to make its workers a little less fascistic in their gropemania, and a little more traveler-friendly.

We are rather "kneecapped" on this here in Hawaii, as in order to get to somewhere else, we need to either board a plane or a boat. But on the mainland, the choice has been made crystal clear, courtesy of the TSA.

And folks, please remember; the TSA workers are those people who could not get a job flipping burgers at a hamburger joint!!

FACEBOOK ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH THINK TANK CONNECTED TO NATO, MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX

Facebook has announced a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, a think tank with close ties to the Military Industrial Complex and Defense Department.

On Thursday Facebook announced a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, a think tank which officially claims to provide a forum for international political, business, and intellectual leaders. The social media giant said the partnership is aimed at preventing Facebook from “being abused during elections.” The press release promotes Facebook’s efforts to fight fake news by using artificial intelligence, as well as working with outside experts and governments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Facebook will, henceforward, be weaponizing all information on it, for the benefit of the DOD and military industrial complex.

If there was EVER a reason to run, not walk from, Facebook, it is this moment, in its evolution, to abandon it permanently.

HUNDREDS OF HANDBAGS, 72 SUITCASES FULL OF JEWELS SEIZED FROM OUSTED MALAYSIAN LEADER'S HOME

Former prime minister Najib Razak and his wife were barred last week from leaving Malaysia in the wake of his stunning election loss, over fears that they may evade prosecution in a massive corruption scandal.

Then, police announced Friday that raids on properties linked to Najib had turned up 72 suitcases stuffed with jewels and cash. It took five trucks to haul away some of the belongings, because police also had to fit 284 boxes filled with designer handbags - including Birkin bags from Hermes, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Photos show police carrying out orange boxes, with labels reading "Paris, H Bag Gray Croco Skin Hermes" and "Switzerland, Bag Blue w/Diamonte Croc Skin, Hermes."

"Exactly how much jewelry, I would not be able to say, because we know that we confiscated bags containing jewelry, and the number of jewelry is rather big," Amar Singh, head of Malaysia's commercial crime investigation unit, told reporters on Friday.

US SUPPORTS VENEZUELA'S DEMOCRACY BY ACCUSING MADURO OF DRUG PROFITEERING AHEAD OF ELECTIONS

The US has criticized the upcoming Venezuelan elections as 'fake,' and rushed to support 'democracy' by slapping a top ruling-party member with new sanctions and accusing President Nicolas Maduro of drug-trade profiteering.
The "second most powerful man in Venezuela," Diosdado Cabello, immediately brushed aside the accusations and new US sanctions introduced against him for allegedly heading a drug ring. He said such slander would only strengthen the ruling party's candidate, Maduro, to win Sunday's elections.

"In truth I feel liberated, that imperialism is busy persecuting this humble soldier and his family, strengthens me, forces me every day to continue fighting for the causes that I believe and to be faithful and loyal to our beloved people," Cabello, who is vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), said in a tweet after the US Treasury slapped him – as well as two members of his family, and his "front man" – with sanctions ahead of the election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These most-probably fact-free smears are not going to change the way this election will go.

Russia has already started to assist economically by using the petromoneda, an oil-backed currency, and short of an outright US invasion, Venezuela is going to continue upon the political road it is on right now.

DOJ STILL WANTS TO LOCK PEOPLE UP FOR PROTESTING THE GOVERNMENT, OR EVEN JUST TALKING ABOUT IT

The government is still trying to land a conviction from its mass arrest of participants in last year’s Inauguration Day protests in Washington, DC. So far, it has nothing to show for its efforts but a far-too-casual disregard for civil liberties.

The government compounded its unconstitutional behavior in court when its lawyer (Jennifer Kerkhoff) tried to downplay the significance of a foundational part of our justice system — that the accusers must prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” the accused committed a crime.

After these horrendous actions and the acquittal of its first batch of J20 prosecutees, the DOJ is finally going to attempt something a bit more targeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump's Administration will not rest, until the entire First Amendment to the Constitution has become thoroughly damaged, that any attempt at peaceful, dissenting speech, can now be criminalized.

Clapper Says "Good Thing" FBI Was Spying On Trump Campaign

From: @real Donald Trump:

Wow, word seems to be coming out that the Obama FBI “SPIED ON THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WITH AN EMBEDDED INFORMANT.” Andrew McCarthy says, “There’s probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign.” If so, this is bigger than Watergate!

The Daily Caller's Julia Nista pointed out the hypocrisy of former Director of Intelligence James Clapper, who said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from a guy who pledged to uphold the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and defend this country from all enemies, both foreign and domestic?!?

Did he not realize what he said on CNN, and just how hypocritically that statement is going to be recieved by people who honor and cherish freedom and justice, and the values represented by the Constitution and Bill of Rights?!?

I have two words for this: utterly tonedeaf!!

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.

Republicans’ Apocalyptic Fantasies Are Now Playing Out in the Middle East

ore than 20 people in Gaza were dead on Monday before anyone in Washington had had their breakfast. This was pitched to the awakening nation as a series of “deadly clashes,” even though the deadly part only applied to one side. It was a great start to a day in which the president*, who doesn’t know anything about anything, prepared to toss a lighted match into a lagoon of gasoline in the Middle East.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This genocidal behaviour on the part of the IDF toward the Palestinians, encouraged and abetted by President Trump's acquiescence to the movement of the American embassy to Tel Aviv, coupled with the end-times insanities of Jeffress and Hagee (which are very dubious, in terms of both Biblical origins and interpretations), and the rabidly wretched racisim of Israeli Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, paints a very ugly picture of 21st century Israel.

The author of this article's likening of what Trump has done here, geopolitically, as being akin to tossing a lighted match into a lagoon of gasoline in the Middle East, is a very adept analysis.

People in the Middle East do not dislike us "For our freedoms", as the war criminal President Bush famously used to love to say; they dislike us because US foreign policy in the region has been completely oursourced to Israel, and Americans have been forced to live with those negative consequences of that Israeli-outsourced foreign policy for far too many years.

That foreign policy led to war with Iraq; it may well lead to a war against Hezbullah in Lebanon; a continuing war against Syria; and a war against Iran. And trust me on this; Tel Aviv wants those wars outsourced to the US military to fight,, but only at the costs borne in American blood, and American money.

The only political leader I am seeing as the adult in the room on these issues of stopping further wars in the region, will be Russia's President Putin; but even he may not be able to stop what I am seeing as the American rush to war in the Middle East, again, to control their pipelines, and in what currencies their oil will be sold.

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.

EU Will Block US Sanctions Against Iran Starting Friday

EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has confirmed that beginning Friday, a 1996 “blocking statute” aimed at preventing the enforcement of the US sanctions against Iran will be brought back into effect. The law was initially passed to prevent the US blocking EU companies from trading with Cuba.

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and British Prime Minister Theresa May
EU officials have been negotiating the matter all week, as an attempt to try to save the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran after the US withdrew, and started re implementing sanctions. EU leaders have agreed that the entire union will work together in protecting the deal.

The blocking statute explicitly forbids European companies from complying with any nuclear-related US sanctions against Iran. It also mandates that the EU states will not recognize any foreign court rulings trying to enforce the sanctions against those companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what is President Trump going to do now, declare war on the EU?!?

That he and his team got so utterly caught like a deer in the headlights on this, and had no idea that his decision to pull the US out of the P5+1 deal was going to have these kinds of ramifcations, is not precisely a stellar endorsement of their understanding of the EU relationship with Iran, nor the fallout this decision would have.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable, yet perfectly predictable from this Administration.

Trump Hits North Korea With Barrage of Mixed Signals: Trump dismissed 'Libya Model,' threatens Kim with Gadhafi's fate

The Trump Administration appears determine to respond to North Korea’s recent concerns about war games near their border ahead of the June 12 summit. It doesn’t seem that officials are entirely clear what North Korea wants to hear, however, so they’re trying pretty much everything.

President Trump in particular is throwing every combination of threats and incentives he can think of at North Korea, attempting to disavow the “Libya Model” talked of by John Bolton, while at the same time threatening to see Kim Jong-un end up dead like Libya’s Gadhafi if he doesn’t capitulate.

North Korea objects to the Libya Model primarily because of its consequences. Gadhafi agreed to give up his WMD equipment in 2003, in return for improved diplomatic ties. This never really panned out, however, and by 2011, NATO attacked Libya, helping rebels to ultimately capture and kill Gadhafi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I heard that President Trump had made these completely contradictory statements yesterday, I had an industrial strength Picard double-face palm, at velocity.

As I have said many times on this blog, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing an American government official could say, or do, is absolutely no guarantee that they won't do it; such it was with President Trump's statement about the potential for the "Libyan Option" with North Korea.

While acknowledging that President Trump is a very astute businessman, there are moments, in his role as President, when he comes off as a rather "blunt instrument.", and yesterday was, truly, one of those terror-inducing moments when he did just that.

These mixed messages have absolutey no place in any negotiating process internationally, period, end of discussion; so now, what we have is the potential for the Singapore summit between Trump and Kim Jung Un potentially cancelled, and primarily due to US governmental stupidity.

And the other issue which deserves scrutiny, is why the South Korean and the US military went ahead with these exercises, right before the negotiations, in a move they knew was going to tick Kim Jung Un off, because he believes every exercise like this is a practice run for an invasion of North Korea?!?

Everyone knowledgeable about Kim Jung Un's thinking could have predicted this, which begs the question; was this the outcome most of DC wanted, the scuttling of these talks, which would have been potentially huge, and a way to have stopped a potential war sabotaged?!?

Sacramento Residents Outraged By Secret Drone Program Spying on Neighborhood

By Nicholas West

A group of residents from Sacramento’s Land Park neighborhood are expressing their disgust with a secret drone program that has been exposed in the last month.

As reported by Sacramento’s CBS local affiliate, John Mattox was the first to notice a low-flying drone in the late-night and early morning hours hovering over his neighborhood...

Fighting Displaces Tens of Thousands of Yemenis Near Key Houthi Port

Tens of thousands of civilians have been displaced from Yemen’s coastal province of Hodeidah, as pro-Saudi forces invaded the area with an eye toward eventually seizing the last port held by Shi’ite Houthi forces.

The civilians say they were facing terrifying mortar attacks, with rockets flying overhead and landmines ripping people to shreds. Amnesty International is reporting that the worst is yet to come, however, for the entire nation, as this offensive worsens.

That’s because as the last Houthi port, Hodeidah is the lone source of humanitarian aid for roughly half of the country. That makes it a “strategic target,” but the fall of the port also means that half of the country, the half already on the brink of starvation and recovering from a record large cholera epidemic, will be under even tighter siege.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The continuing Saudi genocide in Yemen, aided and abetted by US military forces, has to be one of the worst "silent screams" of the 21st century.

And I say this, because not one of the presstitute corporate US media is covering any of this; you have to go to the independent media, like WRH, to get any word of what is happening on the ground. Because of this, as a Christian Pacifist Activist, I will continue to cover this horror just as long as it continues. And here are some images (very disturbing) of what is being done, and enabled by US troops, in collusion with Saudi troops, in your name, and with your tax dollars, in Yemen:

At least 20 killed as Saudi airstrike hits Yemeni wedding

Saudi Led coalition killed 68 children in Yemen

Images: Yemeni children getting maimed and killed by Saudi bombing runs

Saudi Bombing Is Said to Kill Yemeni Civilians Seeking Relief From the Heat

Seen enough?!? Doesn't it make you feel PROUD to be a Warmerkian?!?!

Because people, if we are not part of a peaceful public dialogue to at least get the US government to withdraw its military and financial aid to this slaughter, we are part of the problem.

Please share these images with your Congressional Representatives, and ask them what they intend to to to stop this genocide. Be polite, but firm. Because if they know that the issue of US war crimes in Yemen is going to be an election-preventer in the coming mid-term elections, it just might cause them to speak up, speak out and at least end the US government's involvement in Yemen.

Russia Opens Terror Probe Into U.S. Journalist’s Call for Airstrikes on Crimea Bridge

Russia’s Investigative Committee has launched a criminal case against an American journalist who wrote an editorial calling on Ukraine to bomb Russia’s newly-opened bridge to the annexed Crimean peninsula.

Tom Rogan urged the Ukrainian government to “launch air strikes” and “destroy elements” of the bridge to Crimea in a Washington Examiner magazine op-ed published on Tuesday. Kiev, the United States and the European Union criticized the opening of the road-and-rail bridge and called it a violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

“The investigation has detected signs of public incitement to terrorist activity in the territory of the Russian Federation,” the Investigative Committee said in an online statement on Thursday in reference to Tom Rogan’s article.

The publication’s editor will also be subject to a “pre-investigation probe” for publishing Rogan’s commentary, an Investigative Committee spokesperson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good for Russia!!

This... is the kind of alleged "journalism" which is only fit to line the bottom of a birdcage, or pick up a puppy's "leavings" on the grass when walking a dog.

And although this is completely symbolic, as the US will NOT extradite this guy, the sheer irresponsibility of egging people on to destroy property and lives, as demonstrated by this article, is NEVER acceptible, in the realm of international relations.

Rigged? Circuit Judge Says Ballots Were Illegally Destroyed In Wasserman Schultz' House Race

Florida circuit court Judge Raag Singhal ruled the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office violated state and federal law Friday, after the office destroyed ballots from a 2016 House race for Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s seat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I singularly unsurprised at this?!?

Because this is precisely how the Clintonistas operate; if they cannot win fair and square, they will cheat, lie, and steal. It is, as a matter of fact, the only way in which they know how to do business!!

Russian stock market brushes off US sanctions, trading near all-time high

The Russian economy is proving to be resilient and showing a strong recovery from the initial shock of the latest round of US sanctions targeting the business sector.

The ruble-traded MOEX reached 2,358 points this week, which is very close to an all-time high of 2,376.96 seen in February. The dollar-traded RTS index is still over 10 percent down from the February highs, but has also been recovering.

Analysts are pointing at the good signs in the Russian economy and growing price in crude oil. “The victorious march in the market goes on. In my opinion, this happens because of the influx of new investors in shares following the good situation in commodities and stable macroeconomic indicators,” said Freedom Finance analyst Georgy Vashchenko in a note. “If the trend does not break, MOEX can reach record high 2,400 points.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia's President Putin is laughing his head off right about now, and for good reasons; he knows that Europe, and the Middle East, are going to ignore US sanctions, or work around them, because of his country's oil production, and the production of non-GMO food. These commodities are vauable to every country in the world doing business.

And unless President Trump is willing to go to war with every country ignoring the sanctions, these sanctions will be toothless, at the end of the day.

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.

WHY BIG BANKS LOVE PAYING FINES TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT

When Volkswagen executives found out U.S. regulations would kill one of their diesel models, they pulled some tricks. They fooled U.S. regulators by installing software which misrepresented the emissions released.

But the U.S. found out, and arrested the top executives involved.

One of them, a German citizen, was sentenced to 7 years in prison late 2017 for his role in the scandal.

That’s a pretty intense prison sentence for trying to trick regulators. The government says that society is the victim in this case, because the regulations are an attempt to keep the environment clean.

But how does the government respond when a business directly victimizes hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of its own customers?

Look no further than Wells Fargo to find out.

Wells Fargo has repeatedly screwed their customers, and yet not a single executive has gone to prison.

Sovereignman sums up the last few years of scandals:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Wells Fargo does this... because it can.

These practices will only stop when convictions of executives who sign off on these practices are tried, convicted, and do hard time in Federal penitentiaries, and NOT in a "Club Fed".

"FUCK TURKEY": NETANYAHU SON'S MESSAGE TO ANKARA OVER GAZA MASSACRE

"Fuck Turkey."
That was the message the Israeli prime minister's son gave to the world, as a state-level row with Ankara over Israel's killing of 62 Palestinians on Monday descended into the bawdiest of insults.

Yair Netanyahu posted the message on Instagram on Wednesday, as Israel and Turkey expelled each other's top diplomats after Ankara's condemnation of Israel's live-fire tactics against Gaza protesters.

Benjamin Netanyahu's son included the message in an image similar to the Turkish flag, which has a red background and white star and crescent moon in the centre. The image showed the words “Fuck Turkey” with the crescent moon in place of the letter ‘c’.

#BREAKING: Yair Netanyahu, the son of Israeli PM @netanyahu, published a post against Turkey on his instagram acount pic.twitter.com/KUz22izGlf

— Amichai Stein (@AmichaiStein1) May 16, 2018

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; is this kind of heubristic apartheid on the part of Netanyahu's son, inherited in the DNA, or is it carefully taught?!?

I am recalling the lyrics of a song, written many years ago, by Rogers and Hammerstein, from a show called "South Pacific", talking about prejudice.

And if you are my age (I just turned 69), you might recall your mom or dad making a pilgrimage to the local grocery store, and coming home, triumphantly with a big round thing, called a "record", which one would play on a record player, and I would love the opportunity to learn all the songs from a current Broadway show.

And a couple of lines I remember most vividly from this show are as follows are:

"You've got to be taught
Before it's... to late!
Before you are six... or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!!"

But then, what is to be expected from the son of a Prime Minister in a wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?!

Unfortunately and very sadly, what he just posted on instagram, is perfectly predictable, under the circumstances.

Why Trump Is A Rothschild Tool

In 1987 Donald Trump purchased 93% of Resorts International, a CIA front founded by Crown Agents Allen Dulles and David Rockefeller as the Mary Carter Paint Company in the 1950’s. A year later Trump bought the Atlantic City, NJ Taj Mahal Casino from Resorts International, then began buying up other properties on the Atlantic City boardwalk.

Soon Trump was tapped out and couldn’t make his debt payments.

Enter Wilbur Ross, billionaire bond trader portrayed by the Illuminati financial media as an “independent investor”. In fact, in 1992 Ross was heading Rothschild Inc.’s bankruptcy advising team, which represented bondholders who were threatening to foreclose on Donald’s house of cards.

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.

Ukraine Claims ‘Loyal’ Military Dolphins Starved Themselves Rather Than Be Under Russian Control

Better dead than red? According to Ukrainian officials, that’s a choice that their fiercely loyal military dolphins faced in 2014, when Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula and took the dolphins into custody.

The Ukrainian story would have you believe that even though the Russians in Crimea had the proper command whistles for the dolphins, they were so despondent to be taken by Russians they all went on a hunger strike, and starved to death en masse.

Russia’s story is quite a bit different, noting that the dolphins had been “demilitarized” long ago and didn’t care who was feeding them. They say the dolphins were sold off to commercial interests almost immediately, and aren’t in Crimea anymore.

Health Glyphosate destroys the gut and triggers autoimmune disease

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the popular herbicide, Roundup. Glyphosate toxicity is a big deal, and what you don't know just might kill you!

Glyphosate is also toxic to our gut microbiome

Glyphosate is toxic to many of our beneficial gut microbes. It may preferentially kill off species, like lactobacillus while leaving potential pathogens, like clostridia to run wild. Glyphosate also chelates essential minerals, such as manganese, iron, cobalt, molybdenum, and copper so that the gut microbes do not have access to them. This leads to chronic inflammatory states in the gut as well as increased intestinal permeability, a mechanism at the core of many chronic illnesses, including inflammatory bowel disease, depression, and autoimmunity.

“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East

President Donald Trump has confirmed in no uncertain terms, his support of Israel’s illegal settlements (including his opposition to UN Security Council Resolution 2334, pertaining to the illegality of the Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank).

Moreover, by moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and allowing for the expansion of Israeli settlements in the occupied territories and beyond, the US president has provided a de facto endorsement of the “Greater Israel” project as formulated under the Yinon Plan.

Bear in mind: this design is not strictly a Zionist Project for the Middle East, it is an integral part of US foreign policy, namely Washington’s intent to fracture and balkanize the Middle East. Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is intended to trigger political instability throughout the region.

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.

Is love or politics behind Putin’s promotion of Chabad?

JTA — When even Russian policemen had to pass security checks to enter the Sochi Winter Olympics, Rabbi Berel Lazar was waved in without ever showing his ID.

Lazar, a Chabad-affiliated chief rabbi of Russia, was invited to the opening ceremony of the games last month by President Vladimir Putin’s office. But since the event was on Shabbat, Lazar initially declined the invitation, explaining he was prevented from carrying documents, among other religious restrictions.

So Putin ordered his staff to prepare an alternative entrance and security-free route just for the rabbi, according to one of Lazar’s top associates, Rabbi Boruch Gorin.
