Coronavirus: South Korea placed on ‘red alert’ as fifth person diesMore than 9,000 Shincheonji church members in self-quarantine as president describes coming days as ‘very important moment’

South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in has placed the country on “red alert” after it reported its fifth death and more than 123 new coronavirus cases, taking the total number of infected to 556.

As the nation struggled on Sunday to contain the deadly Covid-19 outbreak in the city of Daegu, the president described the coming days as “a very important moment”, the news agency Yonhap said.

The government would bolster its fight against the virus by raising the alert level one notch to the highest of “red”, he told an emergency meeting of agencies in Seoul on Sunday.

Of the 123 new cases, 75 are related to the Shincheonji church in the country’s fourth-largest city of Daegu and a neighbouring hospital.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has placed more than 9,000 Shincheonji members in self-quarantine and thousands of worshippers have been screened for the virus.

The Bush Dynasty: Nazi Germany, The Bin Ladens and the Mexican Drug Lords

Is it Coincidental? The Bush family had close links with Nazi Germany, the bin Laden family and the Mexican Drug cartel.

Two members of the Bush dynasty acceded to the White House.

Had the US public been fully informed by the media, who in America would have voted for George W. Bush?

US bars entry to researcher who exposes Israeli rights abuses

US bars entry to researcher who exposes Israeli rights abuses
Maureen Clare Murphy Rights and Accountability 21 February 2020

The US has effectively denied entry to Eyal Weizman, founder of the research group Forensic Architecture.

Forensic Architecture, based in the UK, uses groundbreaking methodologies such as digital forensics and spatial analysis to expose human rights abuses. The group has published several investigations concerning Israeli violations against Palestinians.

Weizman, who holds Israeli and British passports, was due to travel to the US for Forensic Architecture’s first major survey in the country at Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art and Design. The exhibition, titled Forensic Architecture: True to Scale, opened on Thursday and runs through late September.

Today in History: FDR Issues Executive Order Creating American Concentration CampsBy: Dave Benner|Published on: Feb 19, 2020|Categories: History

On this date in 1942, Franklin Roosevelt signed the infamous executive order 9066, authorizing the War Department to establish military zones that would serve as internment camps for mostly Japanese and Italian Americans.

After the United States entered World War II, the president felt that the presence of foreign nationals could not be tolerated in time of war, and would produce seditious and rebellious behavior:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many, particularly internment camp members from Hawaii, never got anything back, in terms of money, or lands they may have owned before their internment; it was, at worst, a cynical land and money grab, many times from Asian citizens who never did - or would have - hurt this country in any way.

Saudi Arabia Says It Intercepted Several Missiles From Yemen

Saudi Arabia’s state media has reported that they intercepted several missiles Friday which were fired from northern Yemen. They say the missiles were deliberately aimed at civilians, accusing the Houthis of turning the Yemeni capital of Sanaa into a hub for missiles.

The Houthis confirmed their strikes, saying they hit targets in Saudi Arabia “with precision” and that Saudi Aramco was struck. Aramco made no comments on the incident, and Saudi reports similarly made no mention of them being hit.

In the past, successful Houthi attacks on Saudi Arabia have been blamed more or less entirely on Iran. Saudi coalition officials this time are trying to emphasize the Houthi “threat” to civilians to justify the ongoing war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Saudis need to stop attempting to position themselves as "a force for good" in Yemen, when they are methodically slaughtering infants; toddlers; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly, then attempting to blame the Houthis for these assassinations.

It's not working; even the American people are awake enough to understand who the "bad guy" is here, and that ... is saying something.

Pompeo Stresses Iranian Threat in Saudi Visit, Meets New Sultan in Oman

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been on a world tour that brought him to Munich, parts of Africa and, most recently, Saudi Arabia and Oman. Not surprisingly, Pompeo’s visit to the two Gulf countries was mostly focused on countering Iran, although he was forced to address the issue of imprisoned US citizens inside Saudi Arabia.

Before traveling to Saudi Arabia, Pompeo talked to reporters in Ethiopia on Wednesday about the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran. “The pressure campaign continues. It’s not just an economic pressure campaign, it’s diplomatic pressures, isolation through diplomacy, as well,” Pompeo said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More sound and fury, on the part of Pompeo against Iran, signifying.... absolutely nothing.

What, please, has Iran done to the world to make it the world's enemy, except to thrive economically, after the 1979 Revolution?!?

The short answer is, nothing.

And before it gets pulled from English speaking audiences, please bop over to the English language version of www.presstv.com, and see just what the Iranians are saying about themselves, and about world affairs.

I would politely suggest to both Israel's Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and the US's President Trump, that although Iranian leadership may be many things (including being a theocracy, as is Israel Israel has evolved from democracy to theocracy) , one of them is not wild-ass crazy; they will not do something overtly aggressive, because they understand that should they do something stupid, it will result in that country being melted into green glass by a joint US/Israeli nuclear strike against it.

As Turkey Escalates Syria Fight, Growing Pressure for US to Get InvolvedTurkey wants US warplanes, Patriot missiles in Idlib

Turkey continues to step up fighting in northern Syria, running up against Russian forces, and giving the appearance of an imminent war in the Idlib Province. Turkey’s willingness to escalate seems to have been picked up by US encouragement, and now Turkey seems to be leading the call to get the US dragged into this conflict as well.

US interests in the Idlib Province are virtually non-existent. Any US-backed rebels that were once there have been wiped out, or aligned to some Islamist group long ago. Arguments for intervention are that Idlib is becoming a flashpoint between Russia and Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Turkey, looking at its battered and flagging options in Syria, against Syrian and Russian military push-back, wants war between the US and Russia in Syria.

And we have a companion piece on this issue, also from anti-war.com,featuring the following headline: As Syria’s War Escalates, Growing Risks of Regional Turmoil:
Conflict increasingly centered around major foreign actors

The article goes on to state: "This week of fighting in northeastern Syria saw a disturbing escalation, with Turkey bringing itself more directly into the war, and several other foreign powers at risk of being dragged in as well.

Turkey’s commitment to prevent Syria from winning the war has threatened to turn this into a border war, and there are a lot of regional interests that could be involved. Russia has warned Turkey away and almost certainly is going to limit how far Turkey can go before they directly intervene to stop them.

That’s already a substantial fight, and with Turkey trying to get the US directly involved in this part of Syria, it could kick off direct military confrontation between the US and Russia. The US has been publicly endorsing Turkey’s action, but it remains to be seen if they’ll get themselves drawn into a war over it."

Unfortunately, just because something is the most monumentally ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government and military could possibly do, is utterly no guarantee that the US will not do it.

I am quite certain that one of the world's best "Trump Whisperers", Bibi Netanyahu, facing one of the most contentious political fights for his life, come the Israeli elections in early March, is "encouraging" Trump to take this idiotic step, toward "regime change" in Damascus, no matter even if it will mean war with Russia, even though the US military is woefully unprepared, under-staffed, and dealing with inferior weaponry, in attempting such a task.

Mr. President: I am respectfully requesting that you NOT commit to a war in Syria at this time. Our military is stretched to the limit with regard to personnel; there is no money, no manufacturing, and no real weaponry advantage we have over the Russian military at this time, and anyone with any horse-sense on this issue, will tell you so, no matter how angry that will probably make you at this time.

And if what I am telling you regarding the status of the US military is the butt-ugly truth right now, (and sir, forgive me, but it is), you have a national, and moral, obligation to fix it: please do so, and right the hell now.

You are welcome, Mr. President.

"Biggest Humanitarian Horror Story Of The 21st Century": Up To A Million Refugees Trying To Flee Idlib

The ongoing final battle for Idlib could unleash the biggest refugee exodus the nine-year war has seen, United Nations officials are warning.

Recent statements from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs puts the latest wave of civilian displacement since December 1 at 700,000.

Turkey's Erdogan is now petitioning the US and NATO to given military assistance against the rapidly advancing Syrian Army backed by Russian air power. International reports suggest up to one million internally displaced persons are now surging toward the Turkish border.

The Wall Street Journal reports that "Families in northwestern Syria are trapped between the advancing Syrian military — backed by Russian airstrikes and pro-Iranian militias — and Turkey."

The report notes Turkey has sealed the border using its military:

"The border is closed to refugees, secured by walls, trenches and guards who have shot people trying to cross without permission," according to the WSJ.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, the Wall Street Journal will not mention what the US has supported here for years; that would really eviscerate the narrative that "Whoever the US sponsors, are always the good guys."

There are no easy answers here; but that being said, the US is horrifically culpable in this humanitarian catastrophe, having supported/armed/financed alleged "Syrian moderate rebels" ( read: ISIS, Al Qaeda) for years here.

Italy becomes Europe’s largest coronavirus hot spot with 2 deaths & 79 cases across 5 regions

The number of confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases has soared to at least 79 in Italy, forcing authorities to introduce increasingly strict containment and quarantine measures in the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto.
A 78-year-old man died near Padua in the Veneto region on Friday night, becoming the second victim of the virus in Italy, after a 76-year-old woman was found dead on Thursday 50km south of Milan.

At least 17 people have been confirmed infected in Veneto so far, including the latest victim’s wife and daughter, as authorities are still mulling whether the Carnival of Venice events should be cancelled. In neighboring Lombardy, there are 54 cases, including one in Milan – a city with a population of 1.4 million, where Women’s Fashion Week is currently taking place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the families and friends of those affected; but again, China's scientists, and the world's scientists, need to work together, with complete transparency, to determine what the hell happened; develop and fast-track a vaccine; and figure out how to prevent such a slate-wiper from ever rearing its ugly head again.

As to whether this will happen, is anyone's guess; but logically, this is what should happen.

Erdogan, Putin, Merkel and Macron to Meet March 5 on Idlib

The Turkish, Russian, German and French leaders will meet on March 5 to try to find a solution to the crisis in the city of Idlib as Turkey and Russian-backed Syrian forces risk confrontation in the region.

Following phone calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that he will meet them all on March 5, without disclosing the location. As Turkey slides toward war, Ankara has appealed to the U.S. and its European allies for support in a conflict that risks undermining the friendly ties he’s built with Moscow.

READ: Turkey and Russia Near Breaking Point in Syrian Standoff

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just what kinds of back-channel communications are going on here, between Ankara and DC; because the US still wants al-Assad out of Damascus, has Turkey been promised some kind of quid pro quo, for keeping Turkish, and Turkish-backed rebels in Idlib, no matter the costs from Syrian and Russian military?!?

Looking at the apparent madness of Edrogan's stand and demands here, this is almost the only thing which makes sense.

YOUTUBE BANS CHRISTIAN BROADCASTER TRUNEWS FOR 'HATE SPEECH'

Christian pastor Rick Wiles' channel TruNews was permanently banned from Google-owned YouTube on Thursday for "hate speech."

1,198 people are talking about this

"It was only a matter of time, YouTube finally canceled our channel," Wiles said on his show Thursday. "What was our crime? They accused us of hate speech."

"Of course, there is no such thing as hate speech -- it's a crime that was invented by the political left several decades ago," he said. "What it really means is free speech that somebody doesn't like."

Wiles said the "final nail in the coffin" according to YouTube was their February 12 interview with Israeli News Live's Steve and Jana Ben-Nun titled, "Christianity Vs. Evangelical Zionism."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not wish to conjecture about "the gates of hell", but I would like to suggest that Pastor Wiles, and his brother and sister Christian broadcasters, need to gather at the "gates of pragmatism".

There are going to be some real, and radical improvements in radio signal distribution, which will not need huge budgets, offices, or studios, but will ultimately reach out to a far greater number of people than current technology will allow; this is the "wave" Christian broadcasters need to be riding, and about which they need to educate themselves and their staffs.

And major congrats to YouTube, and your CEO, Sundar Pichai, for having become this government's Surveillance Arm; all that money you receive, for stomping down people with whom you, and this government, disagree so vehemently, that you shut people out for "non-conforming" ideas, must be ... comforting; at least for now.

TRUMP APPOINTS PRO-ISRAEL, ANTI-IRAN AMB. RICHARD GRENELL AS ACTING INTELLIGENCE CHIEF

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION
President Donald Trump on Wednesday appointed US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell as the acting director of national intelligence, making him the first openly gay person to serve in a cabinet-level position.

Donald J. Trump
?
@realDonaldTrump
Thank you to our great US Ambassador to Germany, @RichardGrenell, for stepping in to serve as acting DNI. I will be nominating a terrific candidate for the job very soon. Stay tuned!

As The Jerusalem Post reports, Grenell is known for his "pro-Israel and anti-Iran" stances.

"For Israel's security and defense establishment, Grenell's hawkish views towards Iran's regime will be welcomed with open arms," Foundation for Defense of Democracies fellow Benjamin Weinthal said.

Though Grenell officially serves as the US' ambassador to Germany, one might assume by looking at his Twitter feed that he was Israel's ambassador to America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This absolutely does not augur well for peace in the Middle East, at all; but peace, of course, is utterly not what either Netanyahu nor President Trump wants to see happen here, but a massive "regime change" in Tehran, to be brought about "by any means necessary".

I would, however, like to politely remind Prime Minister Netanyahu; President Trump; and Acting DNI Grennell, of the following, reported in the English language version of the Moscow Times last summer:

Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

The article goes on to state: "“Iran will withstand this type of fight and Iran is not alone,” Zamir Kabulov, the Foreign Ministry’s special envoy for Asian countries including Iran, said at a Russian-Iranian policy forum in Moscow.

When asked if Russia was ready to provide material support to Iran if the U.S. attacks it, Kabulov said that “specific actions are a question for the Russian president.”

“But it’s not just Russia, many other countries sympathize and empathize with Iran,” the Kommersant business daily quoted him as saying. “Tehran won’t be alone if the U.S., God forbid, takes wild and irresponsible actions against it.”

So, gentlemen, there you have it; should the US(and/or Israel) attack Iran, Russia, and some other, yet to be identified regional players, will be working with Iran to stop such a campaign.

If Kabulov has made the Iranian diplomats who attended this conference such a promise, you can bet it came directly down from "the boss", Vlad Putin; career politicians like Kabulov do not even fart, without Putin's express permission.

So, gentlemen, war with Russia over.... Iran?!?

Would someone please, run a cost/benefit analysis of what such a US military campaign would cost, in American blood and money?!?

And President Trump, are you willing to bet the future of your political party on such a dicey prospect, at the end of your first term, or the beginning of your second?!?

And are you willing to face the political consequences of having to reintroduce the draft, which this time, according to legislation quietly ready for implementation, will be coming not only for our young men, but also for our young women as well?!?

I would hope that the answer here will be, "HELL, no!!"

Rumors have been swirling recently about democratic socialist Bernie Sanders‘s connection with Russia. Now our crack team of investigative journalists have uncovered the smoking gun. Sanders listed Vladimir Putin as a ‘significant other’ on a 1964 mortgage application for his 5th home.

Rove's Reality

How could Rove’s predictions so totally materialize? There’s a simple answer: ‘they’ got away with momentous lies at an early stage. The more authorities lie successfully the more they are likely to lie again in a big way to serve the purposes of earlier lies. The ‘they’ stands for those individuals and groups in the power system who operate beyond legal limits as a hydra-headed entity, whose coordination depends on the project, campaign, mission, or operation at hand. Those with much power got away with excessive extralegal use of it since the beginning of this century because systems of holding the powerful to account have crumbled on both sides of the Atlantic. Hence, potential opposition to what the reality architects were doing dwindled to almost nothing. At the same time, people whose job or personal inclination leads them to ferret out truth were made to feel guilty for pursuing it.

110 US troops suffered concussion, brain injury in Iranian strike: Pentagon

The US Defense Department has yet again raised the number of troops wounded in Iran's retaliatory missile attack in Iraq last month, saying they have suffered “traumatic brain injuries.”

The Pentagon said on Friday 110 service members have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury following the Iran strike on January 8. The figure is higher than the last toll that was announced on February 10.

The State and Heresy

The key text for Christians is chapter 13 of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, which begins: “You must all obey the governing authorities. Since all government comes from God, the civil authorities were appointed by God, and so anyone who resists authority is rebelling against God’s decision, and such an act is bound to be punished.

Today almost nobody holds the position of Romans 13 in its full rigor, if that means a duty of unqualified submission to whatever regime happens to exist. Nearly all Christians distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate regimes; if rebellion is always a sin, how can we have a duty to obey the successful rebel when he assumes power? Must we obey the tsar one day, and the Lenin who topples him the next? Does Paul mean to say: “Thou shalt obey anyone who holds coercive power over thee”?

Chuck Baldwin - This is ZOG (Zionist Occupational Gov't.)

While US troops are fighting Israel's wars abroad, the homeland has been conquered not by arms, but by money. How should Americans respond to being subjugated?

by Chuck Baldwin
(Abridged by henrymakow.com)
. The entire political debate in America centers on the left-right paradigm. If you are a Republican, Democrats are the enemy; if you are a Democrat, Republicans are the enemy. The entire political world revolves around this notion.

It's all a game, a façade, a hoax.

Here's how it works: When the ruling class wants to focus on building a socialist Welfare state, dismantling traditional cultural and religious norms and enacting gun control, it puts liberal Democrats in power. And when it wants to focus on building the Warfare State and creating foreign enemies for the purpose of expanding the "war on terror" and a global surveillance state, it puts conservative Republicans in charge.

Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign

U.S. officials have told Sen. Bernie Sanders that Russia is attempting to help his presidential campaign as part of an effort to interfere with the Democratic contest, according to people familiar with the matter.

President Trump and lawmakers on Capitol Hill also have been informed about the Russian assistance to the Vermont senator, those people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.

It is not clear what form that Russian assistance has taken. U.S. prosecutors found a Russian effort in 2016 to use social media to boost Sanders’s campaign against Hillary Clinton, part of a broader effort to hurt Clinton, sow dissension in the American electorate and ultimately help elect Donald Trump.

“I don’t care, frankly, who [Russian President Vladimir] Putin wants to be president,” Sanders said in a statement. “My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the Dementocrats couldn't get this crud to stick to President Trump (yet again; desperation on the cusp of madness, folks), so they decided that Bernie Sanders would be the next best "sacrificial lamb" here, wanting desperately to get him out of contention before the Democratic Convention, slated for Mon, Jul 13, 2020 – Thu, Jul 16, 2020, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, in Wisconsin.

But looking at the guy's momentum in this campaign, unless something wicked his way comes, or there's a brokered convention (which Bloomberg and Clinton are desperately working to have happen), it looks like he may well be the Democratic Party's nominee for President, which means that the Democrats will lose to Trump yet again in another epic fail, because they could not find a Presidential candidate who represents the large centerist faction of their party.

These self-inflicted wounds will keep coming for Democrats at the national level, unless and until they absorb and internalize the lessons of 2016, and most probably the coming lessons of 2020; and folks, all the yelling, screaming, howling at the moon, or physically lashing out at others who may think differently than they do, such as the Antifa thugs populating our streets and threatening conservatives, will be utterly for naught.

The "golden words" for the day, henceforward, for our Dementocrat brothers and sisters are "common ground"; I would really like to hope that some intelligent forces in the party get this, and start to work with this reality ASAP.

NANOTECHNOLOGY: ONE WORLD, ONE BRAIN

BY JON RAPPOPORT
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”

The recent arrest of Harvard pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Charles Lieber—on charges of lying to federal authorities about his business connections to China—has exposed wide-ranging relationships among American and Chinese researchers.

These relationships include, above all, the open sharing of sensitive technologies that, once upon a time, would have been considered closely guarded state secrets. (See my recent piece, “Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal.”)

Here are quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces”. Its authors are Chinese and American:

CHINA DEPLOYS AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS AND DRONES TO FIGHT VIRUS OUTBREAK

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse.

XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places.

The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou."

Our farm #robot R80 has stepped forward to join the #fightcoronavirus operation, disinfecting parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou. Lightweight, flexible to traverse small districts, R80 can disinfect an area of up to 64800 square metres per hour, with no dead ends.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but most disinfectants... are anti-bacterial; what we are dealing with here, with the coronavirus, is... a virus, not a bacteria.

Were I a Chinese citizen, reading this blurb, I would be infinitely more comforted understanding that some of the chemicals in this disinfectant were actually anti-viral, rather than just specifically anti-bacterial.

COP GETS 7 YEARS AFTER ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR HEROIN, STEALING IT FROM DEPT, SELLING IT

SOURCE: JACK BURNS
(Support Free Thought) -

Haywood County, NC — A Haywood County detective was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison this week for breaking into the evidence locker and dealing heroin. Kevin Smathers was terminated from the Haywood County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) in August 2018 after his crimes were discovered and the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI) was asked to come and investigate. During his time as a detective, Smathers was undoubtedly responsible for putting drug dealers behind bars—only to become one himself.

After the scandal came to light, the Sheriff’s Office asked for outside auditors to take inventory of the evidence room. Following the audit, in the Spring of 2019, Smathers was indicted on 16 counts of breaking and entering (Evidence Room) and 1 count of trafficking opium or heroin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question is, why did it take so long to discover that this cop had gone rogue, before the audit was scheduled, and charges were brought against this man?!?

Food Supply to Collapse after Outbreak? Billionaires Predict “Global Problems”

Agenda 21/2030 asymmetric war on humanity: although superficially counter-intuitive, releasing a virulent, persistent and deadly pandemic like the CoronoaVirus into China first benefits the globalist agenda.

As the totalitarian government in China allows the ruling clique to do what it wishes with the Chinese people: quarantines, forced vaccines, exclusion zones, round-ups, mass detentions, hospitals and 'deathatoriums', crematoriums ... all can be quickly built and implemented as regard for human rights and due process in China are limited.

In the United States, still a functioning democracy, response times will be slowed by 'due process', allowing the pandemic to gain a stronger foothold, its devastating effects on U.S. health, infrastructure, supply chains lasting longer. As China quickly recovers, the United States will still languish as a result of this disease.

Chinese Coronavirus Patient Reinfected 10 Days After Leaving Hospital

In retrospect, the CDC will soon be proven correct in its dire warning that repatriating a full plane of both infected and healthy individuals could be a catastrophic error, because it now appears that not only can the virus remain latent for as long as 42 days, 4 weeks longer than traditionally assumed, resulting in numerous false negative cases as infected carrier slip across borders undetected, but far more ominously, it now appears that the diseases can re-infect recently "cured" patients, because as Taiwan News reports, a Chinese patient who just recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has been infected for the second time in the province of Sichuan, according to local health officials.

On Wednesday (Feb. 19), the People's Daily reported that a man in Sichuan's capital Chengdu had tested positive for the virus during a regular check-up just ten days after being discharged from the hospital. The report said he had previously been cleared of the virus by medical staff.

Excellent New Book About the Bizarre UK Skripal Poisonings Gets to the Truth (John Helmer)

It is exactly two years since the case of two Russians, Sergei and Yulia Skripal, began with their collapse on a park bench in the middle of England on the afternoon of March 4, 2018.

On their anniversary it is necessary to tell this story. But it isn’t the story of what happened. This is because the only people who can tell that one, the Skripals, are locked away in isolation, guarded by determined men under secret government orders.

Instead, this is the story of what didn’t happen – provably didn’t happen because it was quite impossible circumstantially; and because the legal papers warranting that it did have not been signed by a judge, tested in a court of law, or released in public.

SOUTH DAKOTA CONSIDERS FIRST STATE BILL TO OUTLAW ALL VACCINE AND MEDICAL MANDATES

SOURCE: AGE OF AUTISM
Who owns your body?

A growing number of legislators in South Dakota believe you do.

They have introduced a bill to not only end vaccine mandates in the state, but all future medical mandates that my be introduced in generations to come.

One hundred and fifteen years ago this month, the US Supreme Court made a decision that because there was a deadly smallpox epidemic, the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts was allowed to charge a pastor five dollars to opt out of a city wide vaccine mandate. The law didn't apply to children.

That precedent has been the basis for the mandate of dozens of now liability-free vaccines for children and adults, where no epidemic (or even one case) exists, at the costs of thousands, or even hundred of thousands, per year to opt out. It is even the basis on which the Supreme Court ruled that women can be force sterilized, for the good of themselves and society, of course.

Russia Is Interfering With 2020 Elections To Help Trump Win, POTUS Not Happy

C.I.A. Report Finds Concerns With Ties to New York Police

Four Central Intelligence Agency officers were embedded with the New York Police Department in the decade after Sept. 11, 2001, including one official who helped conduct surveillance operations in the United States, according to a newly disclosed C.I.A. inspector general’s report.

That officer believed there were “no limitations” on his activities, the report said, because he was on an unpaid leave of absence, and thus exempt from the prohibition against domestic spying by members of the C.I.A.

Toggle navigationSYRIA - TURKEY'S BLUFF IS CALLED - MEDIA OPPOSITION SOURCES RUN BY BRITISH INTELLIGENCE

SOURCE: MOON OF ALABAMA

Russia has called Turkey's bluff of a wide ranging attack on Syrian government forces. The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan will now have to find a way out of the Idleb trap he set himself in. His excellent Syria adventure is coming to an end.

Meanwhile we learn that the British military intelligence ran another large dis-information campaign that brought 'Syrian voices' into the 'western' press.

Erdogan continues with his wild rhetoric over Syria.

#ERDOGAN: "#Turkey cannot be confined within the 780,000 km2 border. #Misrata, #Aleppo, #Homs & #Hasaka are outside our actual borders, but they are within our emotional & physical limits, we will confront those who limit our history to only 90yrs."
The Turkish talks with Russia have not gone well. Russia had proposed the following points:

1- 16-km border strip in Idlib under Turkey control
2- Russia controls crossing between Idlib strip and Afrin

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Edrogan's brain is writing checks his military are singularly unable to cash, and his military and political friends back home, had better do some creative heads-up, thinking back in Ankara over this weekend.

I do not know if Turkish law has a legislative equivalent to the US Bill of Rights' 25th Amendment, or if snap elections are allowed, but the rest of the Turkish government, and his military, needs to do something to cage the "Erdo-Madness" here, and right the flip now; otherwise, Russia is going make it difficult for Turkey to be able to do anything on the International stage, and that should give both Turkish political and military leaders an industrial-strength pause for thought right now.

NETANYAHU “OPTIMISTIC” ISRAEL CAN USE POLITICAL PRESSURE TO SHUT DOWN ICC WAR CRIMES PROBE

SOURCE: MINT PRESS
TEL AVIV — Since the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced it would investigate war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank last December, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been attempting to rally Israel’s allies in a multilateral effort to stop the ICC’s probe.

Those efforts have now left Netanyahu “optimistic,” with the embattled Prime Minister reportedly telling members of his cabinet that Israel’s efforts to lobby other countries against the ICC case is paying off, according to a recent report published by Reuters. “We are struggling against this [proceeding] and, at our side, I must say, are many friends around the world [which] joined the U.S. in a steadfast stand alongside Israel,” Reuters quoted Netanyahu as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Israel has utterly nothing to hide, in terms of its treatment of Palestinians, why, then is it so terrified of this ICC probe?!?

Is it possible (gasp) that there is some kind of "smoking gun" in the evidence the ICC has garnered, which is going to really make Israel look bad and rotten, should it come to light in the legal process of discovery?!?

The short answer has to be, "HELL, yes!!!", for Netanyahu to be taking such extraordinary steps to shut this investigation down.

CBS NEWS: 'HOW JEWISH AMERICAN PEDOPHILES HIDE FROM JUSTICE IN ISRAEL'

SOURCE: CHRIS MENAHAN, INFORMATION LIBERATION

Jewish American pedophiles are escaping justice by fleeing to Israel and automatically attaining Israeli citizenship under their right of return laws, CBS News reports.

Tel Aviv - It's a tense stakeout, waiting for Jimmy Julius Karow to appear. He is a wanted man and is considered dangerous. Accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in Oregon in 2000, he fled to Israel before authorities in the U.S. could apprehend him or figure out where he went. Karow has been running from U.S. law enforcement ever since. Currently INTERPOL, an inter-governmental policing organization that works with 194 countries, has a Red Notice to alert police worldwide that he's a fugitive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No responsible Jew, no matter the "flavor" of their Judaism (or atheist) in Israel wants to see this happen, particularly when it comes to the sexual exploitation of children.

It would seem reasonable, that the Right of Return needs to be amended, to allow time for at least a cursory look at potential immigrants' criminal records, to prevent his from ever happening in the future, period, end of discussion.

HOW CHINA IS WORKING TO QUARANTINE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
“Censorship, diversion, and lying.”

Google’s core principals?

*I crack myself up*

This piece is useful in understanding state behavior, in general, and their large, lapdog media and social networking organizations.

Via: DefenseOne:

In its battle to contain the coronavirus, the Chinese government has undertaken a wide range of measures, from shutting down cities to using drones to monitor and compel public compliance with public health edicts. But the regime is also waging a second battle: a campaign to control the world’s discussions of the first.

The weapons in this information war are Beijing’s massive media and online control mechanisms. Its three prevailing tactics—all too common across authoritarian regimes and wider online warfare— are censorship, diversion, and lying. China’s efforts show how an online battle for public security sometimes works in opposition to public health, and it reveals the priorities of an authoritarian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world's scientific community needs to implore Chinese leadership, in the most gentle, logical, and responsible way possible, that this cover-up, will be what will be remembered in world history, not how this actually came to happen.

To the Chinese political and scientific leadership, please; this is a time when humankind needs to come together and collaborate, to come to better understandings of what can be done to fight this virus intelligent, rapidly, and humanely.

VIZIBILEZONE WANTS PEDESTRIANS TO LET DRIVERS TRACK THEIR LOCATION IN REAL-TIME

Have you ever felt unsafe crossing the street? You could look both ways before crossing the street and feel safe, knowing you used common sense to navigate street crossings.

Or, you could download this app which alerts drivers to slow down and/or stop as you approach an intersection allowing you to cross the street safely.

An Israeli start-up company called Viziblezone (VZ) wants pedestrians, bicyclists, people on skateboards, scooters etc., to send their locations to vehicles in real-time.
"Viziblezone has introduced a patent-protected, cutting-edge vehicle integrated “Pedestrian Detector.” The system identifies, tracks and protects pedestrians, even when they go undetected by a fast-approaching driver. The detector is designed to operate in any adverse weather and visibility, whether day or night."
VZ's app could give anyone that that leases their software the ability to know where a person or vehicle is in real-time.

BLOOMBERG SURROGATE WAS PR GURU FOR BRAZIL’S EXTREME-RIGHT LEADER BOLSONARO

SOURCE: THE GRAYZONE
Former Michael Bloomberg aide Arick Wierson, who is pushing the billionaire’s 2020 presidential campaign and attacking Bernie Sanders, helped elect far-right demagogue Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

BY BEN NORTON

A Michael Bloomberg surrogate pumping up the billionaire’s 2020 campaign for president also helped to elect Brazil’s extreme-right leader, Jair Bolsonaro, an open supporter of military dictatorship who frequently threatens violence against his political opponents.

Arick Wierson is a public relations strategist who served as a political aide and the top communications adviser to Bloomberg when the Republican media mogul was mayor of New York City.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That Bloomberg is so comfortable, tasking surrogates to support dictatorships in other countries with their PR, to the detriment of the people living in those countries, makes me wonder just what kind of allegiances he has to the Original Contract with America, the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And a at this moment in time, I find myself singularly uncomfortable with this question, relative to Bloomberg's Presidential candidacy and aspirations.

LEAKED TWITTER DEMO SHOWS RED BANNERS TO INDICATE LIES AND DISINFORMATION UNDER TWEETS

A leaked demo has bright red and orange marks on 'harmfully misleading' tweets

"Twitter is experimenting with adding brightly colored labels directly beneath lies and misinformation posted by politicians and public figures," reports Ben Collins at NBC News.

“Twitter tells me it's a possible iteration of something that will roll out on March 5. Possible community moderation coming, too. We've got screenshots.”

From Ben's NBC News reporting:

In this version, disinformation or misleading information posted by public figures will be corrected directly beneath the tweet by fact-checkers and journalists who are verified on the platform, and possibly other users who will participate in a new “community reports” feature, which the demo claims is “like Wikipedia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Twitizens, of course, are forced to "swallow the codswallop" here, that Twitter's alleged "fact checkers" have utterly zero geopolitical agenda here, which is, of course, an absolutely a damned lie.

NEW ‘PURITY TEST’ TOOL TO SCAN HOLLYWOOD SCRIPTS FOR ‘DIVERSITY BIAS’

SOURCE: SUMMIT.NEWS

Major Hollywood studios are set to use a new tool that scans movie & TV scripts and flags up any examples where “diversity” is not portrayed positively in a chilling new development that has echoes of Soviet realism.

Called ‘Spellcheck for Bias’, the tool was developed by the Davis’ Institute on Gender in Media and USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering. It is set to be implemented by Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, Focus Features and NBC Entertainment within the near future.

“The tool supposedly breaks down diversity in material such as scripts and advertising briefs by scanning for mentions of LGBTQ, race, and disabilities, and then identifying how positively such things are portrayed,” writes Zachary Leeman.

‘Beetlejuice’ actress Geena Davis has also partnered with Universal Filmed Entertainment Group to use the program “to police gender roles in scripts.”

REVEALED: Saudi Arabia infiltrated Twitter 'by using two corrupt moles working for the site to exploit security flaws, spy on dissidents and hack thousands of users' data'

Saudi Arabian officials' campaign to lure Twitter workers to spy on social media users in return for cash and gifts began with a simple request to verify an account in 2014, a criminal complaint lodge by the FBI has revealed.

Ahmad Abouammo, 41, and Ali Alzabarah, 35, were cultivated by the country's government to hand over information on users who criticized the Saudi royals.

The personal data accessed would have allowed users to be tracked down in real life, a source told BuzzFeed News.

Colleagues of Abouammo have alleged that other staff members were pressed for information by the US and foreign governments and given little training to deal with it.

Abouammo, a US citizen, and Alzabarah, a Saudi living in California, were reported by The Washington Post have been directed by Bader al-Asaker, a Saudi official. Prosecutors said al-Asaker worked for man named as 'Royal Family Member-1,' reported to be Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS).

Ilhan Omar DID marry her brother and said she would 'do what she had to do to get him "papers" to keep him in U.S.', reveals Somali community leader

Ilhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was in fact her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm
Abdihakim Osman is the first person to go on record to speak of how Omar said she wanted to get her brother papers so he could stay in the United States
It has long been rumored that Omar and Ahmed Elmi are siblings, but because of a lack of paperwork in war-torn Somalia, proof has never been uncovered
Osman said: 'She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school. We all thought she was just getting papers to allow him to stay in this country'

Omar was married to her second husband Elmi in 2009 by a Christian minister - although she is Muslim.

She was first married to Ahmed Hirsi in 2002 in a Muslim ceremony, before they split in 2008 - but she later had another child with Hirsi while legally wed to Elmi.

Lawyers to seek asylum for Julian Assange in France

Assange’s European defence team say it is their duty to raise case with Emmanuel Macron.

Julian Assange’s European defence team have said they will try to seek asylum for him in France. Hearings over Assange’s extradition from the UK to the US on spying charges are due to start next week in London.

Éric Dupond-Moretti said the “fate and the status of all journalists” was at stake in Assange’s case. “We consider the situation is sufficiently serious,” he said, “that our duty is to talk about it” with the French president, Emmanuel Macron.

Donald Trump 'offered Julian Assange a pardon if he denied Russia link to hack'

He was one of a team of lawyers lined up at a Paris news conference to explain why they view the case against Assange as unfair, citing his poor health and alleged violations of his rights while in jail in London.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope and pray France does the right thing here.

And remember; American politicians want him silenced, because he embarrassed them with the truth. So far, to the best of my knowledge and belief, nothing which ever appeared in Wikileaks was ever proven as fraudulent.

Chinese Regime Deploys 1,600 Online Trolls To Suppress Information On Coronavirus

Authored by Cathy He and Eva Fu via The Epoch Times,

The propaganda department in virus-stricken Hubei Province has engaged over 1,600 censors to scrub the internet of “sensitive” information relating to the coronavirus outbreak, according to an internal document obtained by The Epoch Times.

The internal report, dated Feb. 15, detailed the agency’s efforts to ramp up censorship measures. It was drafted after a speech given by Chinese leader Xi Jinping via video link on Feb. 10 to “frontline responders” of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, where the virus first broke out.

The revelations come as the Chinese regime tightens information controls over the worsening outbreak, as netizens have increasingly turned to the internet to vent their frustrations about the authorities’ response, or document what is happening on the ground.

Campaigners have projected the footage of an American airstrike on Iraqi civilians, originally exposed by WikiLeaks, onto the parliament building in London, to protest against the proposed extradition to the US of Julian Assange.
Clips from the infamous 2007 footage were projected onto Westminster Palace, where both houses of parliament are located. The same video was projected on the wall of the Belmarsh maximum security prison in London, where the WikiLeaks co-founder is awaiting his US extradition trial. The images on the buildings' walls included photos of the activist along with slogans like 'Don't extradite Assange' and 'Journalism is not a crime.'

‘Death dividend’: British arms maker BAE Systems blasted on Twitter after announcing big sales growth for ‘good year’ 2019

Britain’s biggest arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, has come under a hail of fire on social media after proudly announcing the “greatest increase” in dividend profits in eight years as part of their 2019 financial results.
BAE Systems tweeted a video on Thursday in which their chief executive Charles Woodburn gleefully revealed that 2019 had been a “good year” for the world’s fourth largest defense company.

BAE’s announcement triggered an avalanche of criticism on Twitter, with many commenters hammering the company for its boastful theme and questioning whether providing bombs that have led to deaths around the world should be something to be proud about.

One person simply tweeted: "Death dividend," while another sarcastically wrote: "So glad killing people has brought you a nice dividend."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All well and good to criticise BAE; but what about the US/British foreign policy which makes these merchants of death so damned profitable?!?

Russian Su-24 Planes Strike Pro-Turkish Terrorists, Allowing Syrian Army to Repel Attacks

According to the Russian Reconciliation Centre for Syria, pro-Turkish militants, with the support of the Turkish artillery, broke through the defences of the Syrian army in the areas of Qminas and Nayrab.

Russian Su-24 aircraft have conducted airstrikes against pro-Turkish terrorists, which allowed the Syrian troops to repel all attacks successfully, the Russian Reconciliation Centre for Syria said in a statement.

"The Syrian troops destroyed one tank, six infantry fighting vehicles and five pickup trucks containing large-calibre weapons", the message said.
The Centre also added that four Syrian servicemen were injured by Turkish artillery. The organisation went on to say that Turkey halted shelling against Syrian government troops as soon as Russia notified Ankara that it had detected the Turkish artillery fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey's government is very much on the cusp of writing checks its military cannot cash in Syria, and Russia is none too happy about this; I would suggest that Erdogan rethink his position here, as his military is getting out-fought, and out-maneuvered by Russian/Syrian forces, toward a very ignoble, and nasty, end.

Ayatollah Tweets "Wealthy Zionists" Control America Amid Push To Get Him Banned From Twitter

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has marked the latest national event commemorating the death of IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani by tweeting a deeply provocative statement asserting that “wealthy Zionists” control America.

The United States has reached the “peak of arrogance,” and is controlled by “wealthy Zionists and their corporate owners,” which makes it a “manifestation of oppression, abhorred by the world,” he said further, as reported in The Jerusalem Post.

The statement comes after the Islamic Republic's top cleric and head of the regime previously slammed Trump's Mideast peace plan “Deal of the Century” as “satanic” because it ultimately represents the “Jewishization” of Jerusalem and the suppression of Islamic identity.

“To the dismay of US politicians, the satanic, evil US policy about Palestine — the so-called Deal Of The Century— will never bear fruit, by the grace of God,” Khamenei wrote on his official Twitter account in late January.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am respectfully requesting that Twitter does not ban either this man, nor other of his Iranian contemporaries, no matter how much hawkish Republicans want to see these statements banned.

And folks, one of two things will happen here; either these charges will wither in the light of logic, or they will not.

What concerns me so deeply about Twitter, and these Neocons, is that they don't believe that thinking Americans have the ability to think critically about what they see coming from Iran, and do a reality test.

It appears that both Twitter and these Neocons have already made the decision that Americans are pathologically incapable of deciding for themselves what the truth of a situation may be, so need to be "protected" from these kinds of statements from members of the Iranian leadership by censoring them, before they get to the American people; but is this really the truth?!?

So I have to ask; what are Twitter and these Neocons afraid of, if these statements are absolutely lies, on the part of Iranian leadership?!?

The short answer is, absolutely nothing, which is why such statements should not be censored, period, end of discussion.

Trump Issues Pardon for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

As with so many “news media” reports now it’s what is NOT REPORTED that is the real news. The following is a case in point. Whether intentional or not, key elements are missing in the NBC report and they constitute the pivotal point in the following story.

Comment – JuneBug1415 on Reddit
Bernard Kerik accepted a “loan” of $250k from Israel billionaire when meeting with Israel to discuss counter-terrorism 2 weeks before 9/11. And oh yea, he was the police commissioner that oversaw 9/11, was pardoned today.
Today Trump has granted clemency or pardoned 11 people all convicted of corruption. But the one that bothers me the most is Kerik.
He accepted a $250,000 interest-free “loan” from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer and failed to report it. Kerik first met the billionaire, whose vast holdings include major defense contractors, when Kerik took a four-day trip to Israel less than two weeks before September 11, 2001 to discuss counter-terrorism with Israeli officials.

Trump belongs to the Zionist faction. Does this portend another world war?

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

What is Donald Trump's place in the big picture?

Trump is a Freemason and probably a crypto Jew. He is surrounded by Jews. The Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) goal is the reduction of the human race (goyim) to the status of domestic animals serving them. We see this emergent pattern in the gross disparities of wealth in today's world.

The Illuminati advance this agenda through mind control (mass media, education) and war. They can't subjugate humanity alone; they need the goyim to destroy each other.

Russia Is Defeating The U.S. In The Middle East Oil Game

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

Historically, Russia goes to great lengths to hide or disguise its strategic intentions but it clearly feels empowered enough in the Middle East to very obviously stake its claim in the region – excluding, for the time being only, Saudi Arabia – by stating that a slew of Russian companies are to spend up to US$20 billion on oil projects in Iraq in the near term.

“Since [U.S. President Donald] Trump outlined the new U.S. foreign policy of not engaging in conflicts abroad unless they were directly aligned with U.S. interests [October 2019], and then effectively withdrawing from Syria and from supporting the Kurds, Russia and China have felt that they can bring forward their plans to bring Iraq within their geopolitical arc of influence,” a senior source who works closely with Iraq’s Oil Ministry told OilPrice.com last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And after all the US blood and money spent, who actually won in Iraq?!?

Folks, read 'em and weep; it is China and Russia; NOT the USA.

America’s Failed Strategy in the Middle East: Losing Iraq and the Gulf

This article goes on to state: "More broadly, the United States has steadily lost the confidence of its Arab strategic partners in the Gulf region. The United States ignored their advice during the invasion in 2003 – making Iran the dominant military power in the northern Gulf while also turning Iraq into a constant source of unstable weaknesses and concern. Beginning with President Obama, the United States has bullied its allies over burden sharing even when they were spending some 10% of their GDP on military forces – raising growing questions about U.S. willingness to main its military role in the Gulf and support the security of its allies. The United States has instead sanctioned and provoked Iran – without effectively deterring it or properly reacting to Iranian military actions – stood by as China created a major base and port facility in Djibouti, and enabled Russia, Turkey, and China to become growing players in Gulf affairs."

And then we have the following story from last September, which of course, never made it to the presstitute corporate press: Russia’s Stroytransgaz Bags Iraq E&P Deal The article goes on to state: "Iraq’s Oil Ministry has signed up US-sanctioned firm Stroytransgaz to explore and potentially develop reserves in the western Anbar province. The yet-to-be-finalized deal sees yet another Russian firm target Iraq’s underexplored acreage.
Russian firm Stroytransgaz was awarded a 34-year contract this week to explore and produce oil and gas in western Iraq’s Block 17, a ministry statement confirms."

How in the name of heaven was this allowed to happen, under the watch of successive administrations, including those of President George Bush; President Barak Obama; and President Donald Trump?!?

One would have thought that somehow, such an outcome would never have been allowed by any of these administrations, let alone all of them; and yet, looking at current events, this outcome was allowed to happen

The only logical explanation to which I can attach any possible credence, is that no matter which party was actually in control, and (allegedly) in charge of the government, the people who were hired to run these scenarios, were utterly, pathologically incapable of seeing any of them through to their most logical conclusions.

Or, when these logical conclusions were expressed to superiors, they were shouted down, courtesy of a collective US leadership hubris, infused with the collective "magical belief" that their "vision" could ultimately trump the butt-ugly prognostications of the people they hired to actually, logically, figure out how these potential scenarios would play out.

This has caused some tremendous info-gaps, at the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress, and this needs to be addressed, and corrected, ASAP; of course, the question must be asked; with so much credibility blown by agencies responsible for US foreign policy, which one will be willing to take the blame?!?

The short answer is, "Absolutely none!", which means that the US is going to continue to advocate, and embrace, an absolutely dysfunctional, disjunct; and dystopian foreign policy, right up until this bites us, collectively, in a very sensitive place in the human anatomy; and when that moment hits, unfortunately, it may well be too late to change course.

The Intolerance Of The "Tolerant" Left: The End Of Liberal Democracy?

Authored by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff via The Gatestone Institute,

We recently witnessed two events that indicated the possible demise of liberal democracy. The implications should frighten supporters of democratic forms of government in which individual rights and freedoms are officially recognized and protected, and the exercise of political power is limited by the rule of law.

The growing intolerance of many "left-wing" groups is apparent in the uproar of the democratic election of the state premier of the German state of Thuringia as well as in the performance of the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, publicly ripping up US President Donald J. Trump's State of the Union address. It was an official document that belongs not to her but to the public, and of which she was merely its custodian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 70 year old great-auntie with a really messed up back, who wishes no one any physical harm, and comes down squarely,but gently, as a little more conservative than liberal, those people who believe that violence against me, for what I believe, scare the utter crud out of me.

And I would like to politely remind people who believe that acting in such a manner is "rational", that just because you have silenced someone, does not mean that you have changed their mind.

Europe’s Nuclear Weapons and the Arms Reduction Treaty

© Photo: Flickr / EU2018BG
It is intriguing but almost inevitable that examination of so many European policies must begin with reference to the United States. The reason is that the US is majestically (and the word is used advisedly) important to Europe, and no matter what opinions may be held of Washington’s policies under the erratic Trump, these will always have influence in Europe’s capitals.

One major Europe-US consideration is the Trump administration’s decisions on nuclear strategy which have an enormous impact that will be likely to shape international relations indefinitely.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As an American, I do not feel at all safter, in light of the Trump Administration's seeming to want to ignore this treaty completely, and Macron is absolutely correct to bring it up in this address.

737 MAX DELAY FEARS AS DEBRIS FOUND IN FUEL TANKS

Boeing moved quickly on Wednesday to reassure airlines that the discovery of potentially dangerous debris in 737 MAX fuel tanks would not delay vital maintenance work designed to return the stricken model to service.

The statement comes after an internal memo leaked to Reuters revealed how ‘foreign object debris’ – thought to include rags, tools and metal shavings – was found in “several” grounded 737 MAX aircraft in Seattle.

In the email, Boeing vice president Mark Jenks called the development “absolutely unacceptable” and added “one escape is too many”.

Australia is one of 40 countries to have banned the aircraft, alongside territories including China, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Oman, the European Union, Singapore and Canada.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And yet...no one at Boeing goes to jail for understanding what was happening, and yet signing off on this massive set of problems with the craft anyway?!?

Forgive me, but where .... is the outrage on this?!?"

How in the name of all that's holy, can a "price" be put on this, as compensation for families who lost their family members on these planes, when corporate knew what the problems were, decided the problems presented an "acceptable risk", and allowed these planes to fly anyway?!?

China Expels 3 WSJ Reporters Over "Racist" Opinion Piece

Update (0720ET): CNBC's Eunice Yoon, who has also been a reliable source of information out of Beijing since the outbreak began, has published a statement from Beijing about the expulsions: "Chinese people do not welcome media that publish racially discriminatory and malicious slander on China. In light of this, China has decided to revoke the press cards of the three Wall Street Journal correspondents in Beijing starting today."

#China revoked the press credentials of three @WSJ journalists based in Beijing. Foreign Ministry said move was punishment for a recent @WSJ opinion piece. @joshchin, @Chao_Deng, @PhilipWen11 ordered to leave in 5 days, said @JChengWSJ

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During this horrific time for the entire planet, given the lethality, and spread of this virus, it would have been exceptionally responsible, and the morally right thing to do, for the WSJ to call upon both Chinese, and world scientists to collaborate, as the brothers and sisters they are, united by their science, to find a way of stopping this virus, and developing a vaccine against it.

China's President Xi is now in a very tough position right now, and perhaps this is precisely where the US wants him to be, as he is being made to look weak to his own people, for he and his management team not having handled this outbreak better.

But I need to ask what is tantamount to an almost sympathetic question here, and that is; did the team originally responsible for this virus, immediately and truthfully communicate the true potential for the scope of its spread, and potential lethality, when it somehow got beyond the control of the lab working with it, or were they too afraid of the potential draconian Communist Party repercussions, once its management understood precisely what had happened here?!?''

After all, when China executes someone in the 21st century, they still charge the family of the executed the cost of the bullet.

My intuition tells me, "No."

How Americas Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up

In 1953, Joseph Alsop, then one of America’s leading syndicated columnists, went to the Philippines to cover an election. He did not go because he was asked to do so by his syndicate. He did not go because he was asked to do so by the newspapers that printed his column. He went at the request of the CIA.
