POLICE TELL VICTIM SHE DESERVED IT AFTER OFFICER CAUGHT ON VIDEO PUBLICLY GROPING HER

SOURCE: JACK BURNS @ THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) - Oklahoma City, OK — An Oklahoma County jail officer is being accused of making unwanted advances towards women at a gas station just down the street from where he works as a detention officer. Backing up these accusations is the surveillance video which captured the alleged assault.

Because the accusation is of a sexual nature, the victim is not being identified at the moment, nor is the officer. But the victim is speaking out to reporters at the same time decrying how the police department handled the situation. She says when she attempted to file a police report and have the jailer charged with sex crimes for allegedly groping her, the police blamed her saying she must have wanted him to come on to her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are women in this country having to continue to put up with this disgusting behaviour on the part of the police?!?

Having always been plain to ugly myself, I have never experienced this kind of behaviour; but where it happens, women have absolutely the right to say no!

DENMARK ANNOUNCES INCREASED MILITARY CONTRIBUTIONS AND NATO SUPPORT IN SYRIA AND BEYOND

SOURCE: ALETHO NEWS

BY SARAH ABED | SEPTEMBER 9, 2019
Denmark is recognized as one of the most socially and economically developed countries in the world, which enjoys a high standard of living as well as high metrics in national performance, protection of civil liberties, and the lowest perceived level of corruption in the world, has announced that it will be boosting military contributions to missions around the world, including joining the United States in its illegal and unauthorized deployment in northeastern Syria.

The sovereign and proud nation of Syria has neither invited nor does it accept any foreign invaders on its land and has repeatedly demanded that all foreign forces leave on their own before they are forced out. Syria is highly committed to liberating every inch of its land from terrorist control whether that be domestic or foreign, and protecting its territorial integrity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW!

The only thing I can think right now is, which high Danish government official got "so badly compromised" that they felt compelled to promise these actions for the US and NATO?!?

STATE AGS UNVEIL SWEEPING ANTI-TRUST PROBE AGAINST GOOGLE ON STEPS OF THE SUPREME COURT

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

In the latest legal push that could ultimately result in the break-up of one of the world's largest tech firms, a bipartisan group of more than 40 state attorneys general, led by Texas's Ken Paxton, will unveil a sweeping anti-trust investigation against Google parent Alphabet Inc.

The anti-trust investigation, which was previewed late last week in a leak to the Wall Street Journal, aims to hold Alphabet accountable for the extreme concentration in the US technology industry. Specifically, the AG's case will focus on Google's influence in search and the digital advertising market, and whether the Silicon Valley giant's overweening influence harms rivals and consumers.

PAM ANDERSON, MEGHAN MCCAIN, AND WAR CRIMES

SOURCE: KURTNIMMO.BLOG

Thanks to “public” education (indoctrination) and the corporate media, far too few Americans understand the founders designed a constitutional republic. Instead, we’re told America is a “democracy”—the ideal of mob rule—and we all have a role to play in deciding who will lead the nation.

This is, of course, nonsense. We are spectators in the bleachers of the three-ring circus of national elections. The state is run by and for the sake of the financial class and transnational corporations. The election of handpicked yesmen (and women) every four and eight years is routinely portrayed as the will of the people.

This is why Donald Trump is a big problem—he went around the political class and made grandiose promises (deep-sixed after the election) and this is why so many Americans voted for him and why the state and its professional careerist class of politicians hate him and want him impeached, even dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The pattern, here, has been crystal clear and painfully obvious; destabilize a government not to the US government's liking; replace that government with one that is to the US government's liking; invite corporations the US government likes (and from whom top US political leaders get overt, and covert support for their campaigns); allow those corporations to expropriate resources to which they, nor the US government ,have any moral right; and sell those resources only in American dollars.

Wash; rinse; repeat. I mean, folks, could this be any simpler?!?

Julian Assange was simply "the messenger", about the absolute, metastasizing, core-deep rot at the center of the bowels of power in this government, which is why so many people in power hate him, and want to see him dead.

That said, I do not believe that the deep state in this country will "Epsteinize" him; perhaps, as most likely happened with Jack Ruby, Assange may find himself fighting an "incurable disease", and he will die right before any legal process can begin.

And if you are shaking you head that this could not be possible, kindly read the following: Biological Warfare: Is it possible to weaponize cancer? 3 Answers

The article goes on to state: 'Luckily for us, cells that don't play by the rules as per the above can be killed off by natural killer (NK) cells, which can easily lyse (under normal conditions, anyway) cells lacking MHC proteins.

However- and this is where the potential for weaponization in humans comes in- recent research seems to indicate that NK cells can't just lyse something that doesn't display MHC proteins- they also need stimulation from at least one of a wide variety of surface ligands. If someone was able to make a cancer cell line that selectively knocked out both components in the MHC display system and a wide variety of these NK-activating ligands, that cancer cell line would probably be invulnerable to a human immune system.

Of course, you'd still have to go around injecting people with these cells, which is why it'd make for an awful weapon of mass destruction.'

But... what if you only needed a few dead, and to make the origins of their disease... untraceable?!? Please be aware that US alphabet soup agencies are already light years ahead of other civilian research in areas like this.

NETANYAHU ACCUSES IRAN OF SECRET NUCLEAR WEAPONS SITE

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
Iran was clandestinely developing nuclear weapons but destroyed a secret site after Israel discovered it, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu alleged on Monday.

Tehran had been developing atomic arms at a facility in Abadeh, south of Iranian city of Isfahan, said Netanyahu. It was the first time the prime minister identified the site after publicly accusing Iran of building a bomb last year while citing a trove of Iranian documents allegedly stolen by Israeli agents from an Iranian warehouse.

"In this site, Iran conducted experiments to develop nuclear weapons," Netanyahu said, adding after Israeli intelligence found out about it, "they destroyed the site. They just wiped it out".

The prime minister did not provide further details on the alleged experiments, or say when they purportedly were held.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please.

You have been consistently tossing out absolutely wildly unsubstantiated claims over the past several years, at every forum you could find, in which you have accused Iran, over and over, of having secret nuclear weapons labs.

So please, let the IAEA do its job, and it will; period, end of discussion.

I, and the world, understand that it is precisely 7 days from now, when Israel will have its next General Election, with every seat in the Knesset up for grabs; and this is not lost on people who understand that, due to corruption charges and other issues, you are fighting for your political life, during this period.

And if, sir, you and the IDF are planning any kind of a decap strike against Tehran, to make you look absolutely "war-centric" to the Israeli electorate, I would strongly caution you all to not do this.

I don't know if you, or any of your advisors happened to read the following story, but think you, and your advisors, need to perhaps take another look at it, so I am doing you the courtesy of re-posting: Iran won't be alone, if the US attacks,Russian official says

A US/Israeli decap strike on Iran, with Russia coming in on Iran's side?!?

Sir, I certainly hope that I am not the only one on this planet who cannot sleep at night, considering how such a potential scenario, conveniently right before the Israeli elections, might well unfold.

The other possibility, which would absolutely stun the world, is that you and Iran's Hasan Rouhani, cobble together a peace, trade, and cooperation treaty, forestalling a war between Israel and Iran; of course, that will only happen when pigs discover they can fly, because Israel's government has become superb at manipulating its "fear dynamic" against their own people, so that everything, from killing an unarmed Palestinian child, to creating World War III,can always be justified by that government.

POWER OUTAGE FOR FEDERAL COURT COMPUTER SYSTEM SCREWS UP THREE MONTHS WORTH OF JOB APPLICATIONS?!?

SOURCE: TECH DIRT
For years, we've talked about what a total joke the federal courts' PACER system is. That's the computer system the federal courts use for accessing court documents. It acts like it was designed in about 1998 and hasn't been touched since (and even when it was designed, it wasn't designed well). But that's not the only fucked up computer system that the federal courts use. A few years back when I was an expert witness in a federal case, I had to make use of a different US court website just to get paid by the government -- and while it's been a few years, I still remember that it required you to use Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer! It had lots of other issues as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the more I see the US lose its technological edge over other countries, the more I think of Terry Gilliam's masterpiece film, "Brazil".

It is one of the most brilliant, dystopian, and prophetic films I have ever seen, regarding the morphing of the American Dream... into the American Nightmare of surveillance, complete suppression of all civil liberties; wealth inequality, and a complete destruction of all the things our Founding Fathers (and the women who loved them) held dear.

And if you decide to see this, please order "the Director's cut."; it makes very clear some of the issues film distributors did not want Americans to see, in its original release.

    SAUDI ENERGY MINISTER CONFIRMS PLAN TO ENRICH URANIUM 

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE
Among the most underreported but explosive stories of the past six months has been growing signs of Saudi Arabia's nuclear ambitions. But now there are new questions over whether the kingdom's future planned two nuclear power reactors will be limited to purely energy-related and peaceful purposes.

On Monday the kingdom's nuclear energy minister said Saudi Arabia wants to enrich uranium for its nuclear power program, Reuters reports — an announcement likely to hinder talks with Washington over American companies' potential help in establishing its atomic energy program.

"The world’s top oil exporter says it wants to use nuclear power to diversify its energy mix, but enrichment also opens up the possibility of military uses of uranium," Reuters noted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Golly Gee, Whillakers!!! What could POSSIBLY go wrong with that!

JUST what the US government desperately (doesn't) need more of right now; yet another Middle Eastern despotic autocracy, in the possession of nuclear weapons!! To potentially use against whom, I wonder?!?

Are the Saudis going to sign the NNPT before they begin this development?!? I sure as hell wouldn't hold my breath on that one. Will they allow IAEA specialists to monitor their work in this direction?!? Again, I would not hold my breath on it.

And even though toward the end of this March, President Trump authorized a secret nuclear power project for Saudi Arabia, US Approves Secret Nuclear Power Deal for Saudi Arabia apparently, it was too little, too late, because an already nuclear-armed Pakistan was in serious dialogue with the Saudis about assisting the Saudis with their nascent nuclear program.

We have a story, datelined March of this year, which sheds some light on this possibility:

How Cash-Strapped Pakistan could get Sucked into Saudi/Iran Rivalry

This article goes on to state:

'Saudi Arabia announced $20 billion in infrastructure and energy investments for the cash-strapped country of 200 million, which is currently on the brink of financial crisis.

Many of the projects are located in Pakistan’s impoverished and restive Balochistan region, which lies along the 565-mile border with Saudi arch-rival Iran.'

Pakistan certainly had the means, the motive, and opportunity here to create a nuclear armed nation in Saudi Arabia.

I sense that President Trump absolutely did not see this coming, and has been totally blindsided by Saudi Arabia's desire for both nuclear energy, and a nuclear bomb; I mean, the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Prince Salman, is one of Trump's BBFs in the Middle East, (along with the Israeli Butcher of Gaza, Prime Minister Netanyahu), right?!?

Mr. President, I am sorry, but with the US government's giving so much military and monetary aid to Israel when it is illegal, under both the Symington Amendment and The Mann act (requiring that every nuclear nation become a signatory to the NNPT, and have their nuclear sites inspected, as has Iran), demonstrates to the world, incontrovertibly, that US foreign policy in the Middle East, has made an absolute, necrotic hash of their nuclear proliferation doctrine.

This... is a flustercluck, writ large, Mr. President.

I think that the American people have the right to know, just how you intend on "fixing" this, sir; because it appears to me that the nuclear "Genie" has well and truly left the bottle, and cannot be convinced to return.

Americans Deserve Their Day in Court About NSA Mass Surveillance Programs

EFF continues our fight to have the U.S. courts protect you from mass government surveillance. Today in our landmark Jewel v.

WaPo’s Desperate ‘Do Something’ Demand Inadvertently Shows Futility of ‘Gun Control’

Despite such uneven playing fields, here’s the thing to keep in mind: No matter what oath-breaking political parasites do, a critical mass of committed gun owners will not surrender their guns and there aren’t enough enforcers to make it happen. That both enrages and scares the hell out of those who would control all, but it also shows that the Second Amendment is still working as intended, even when apparently dormant. Just as arms in private hands discourage individual predators from attacking, so too does that work on a societal scale.

US faces the return of LEPROSY: Doctor warns it is 'only a matter of time' before it appears among burgeoning homeless

A leprosy outbreak could soon hit homeless populations in the US, a doctor has warned.

Dr Marc Siegel, of New York University's Langone Health, fears it is just a 'matter of time' before the bacterial disease strikes.

He pointed to Los Angeles County as being particularly at risk, with almost 60,000 people sleeping rough in the area.

Although leprosy is not particularly contagious, the combination of poor hygiene, a lack of shelter and inaccessible medical treatment among the homeless creates a 'perfect cauldron' for the disease, Dr Siegel said.

Left untreated, the infection can cause blindness or permanent disability - a 'sure recipe for instant public panic'.
Central and South America have more than 20,000 new incidences a year, with 'sporadic cases continuing to be brought across our southern border undetected', he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When anyone with this disease comes into this country illegally, because they have not gone through a thorough health screening, to determine whether or not they are healthy enough to be permitted to live here, this disease scourge has nothing stopping it from infecting the general US population.

That... is simply fact.

Netanyahu Fighting for His Political Life

New elections were called after Netanyahu failed to cobble together enough support for reelection as prime minister. He remains interim PM.

On September 17, Israelis go to the polls again to elect a prime minister and Knesset members.

Ten parties are competing for seats. Polls show Netanyahu-led Likud and Benny Gantz/Yair Lapid’s Blue and White party are each projected to win 31 of 120 Knesset seats, according to polls.

Throughout Jewish state history, Israeli coalitions governed, no single party ever winning a majority on its own.

Today extremist right-wing parties dominate Israel’s political landscape, reflecting hardline rule, democracy pure fantasy as in the West.

Netanyahu is desperate to retain power ahead of an October pre-indictment hearing on bribery, fraud, and breach of trust charges, strong evidence against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; Netanyahu has exactly 8 days in which to create some kind of war which might, under some circumstances, possibly postpone the elections until he feels he has a "safe majority" of coalitions which will protect him, or create an all-out war against Gaza, Iran, and Lebanon, hoping he looks "butch enough" to win the next elections.

However, the Israeli price in blood and money spent for such operations, looks terribly steep, from where I sit; I would respectfully and sincerely caution Prime Minister Netanyahu not take this road. Your people are emotionally exhausted by the steady diet of fear and anger, when there are so many other options which could be pursued, in the name of peace, and prosperity, for both Israel, and all other neighboring countries in the region.

Erdogan ramps up war talk as Turkey pushes for nuclear weapons after Putin missile row

TAYYIP ERDOGAN claimed he "will not accept" the status quo and believes Turkey should have nuclear weapons after accusing Donald Trump, NATO and Israel of hypocrisy over their outcry at missiles recently delivered to Turkey from Russia.

The Turkish President said it was unacceptable that nations boasting missiles of their own are attempting to restrict Turkey's military operations. Erdogan said: "Some nations have missiles with nuclear warheads — not just one or two. But (they say) I should not have missiles with nuclear warheads. I don't accept this. "There is is almost no developed country in the world that does not have nuclear warheads."

Turkey's pro-government newspaper, Sabah, added fuel to the fire by declaring: "We are carrying out work for nuclear missiles."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was also involved in Erdogan's outburst, claiming that the Middle Eastern state tries to intimidate with its own weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I really don't like this guy, because he refuses to be President of ALL of Turkey's people (like its Christians and its Kurds), and consistently fails to come up with peaceful political ways with which to integrate these communities.

But when Edrogan speaks about Israel's nuclear weapons, being used to "scare" its regional neighbors, he is absolutely speaking the truth.

Hundreds Of Russian Troops Deploy To Idlib In Case Ceasefire Collapses: Report

Via AlmasdarNews.com

Hundreds of Russian troops are being sent to the Idlib Governorate in northern Syria, the Russian publication Lenta.Ru reported this weekend.

According to the publication, hundreds of Russian troops belonging to the Yevgeny Prigoshin private military contractors were deployed to the Idlib Governorate, despite a pause in offensive operations.

“The plan is for groups of 50 people each, with the support of Russian aviation, to take part in street battles necessary to clear the populated city from thousands of militants associated with Al-Qaeda (banned in Russia),” Lenta.Ru reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing which concerns me here,is that private mercs are not, generally, held to the same moral standards as are soldiers, meaning there are things these people are willing - and able - to do, which no Russian military would very think of doing.

IF the jihadis here think that a final bloody battle will find them the winners of such a conflict in Idlib, they had really, honestly, had better think again.

Hezbollah Shoots Down Israeli Surveillance Drone Over South Lebanon

Two weeks after the first significant Israel-Hezbollah exchange of fire since the 2006 war, Hezbollah announced Monday it has downed another Israeli drone in southern Lebanon, The Washington Post reports.

A Hezbollah media statement said the group had "confronted" the Israel drone with "appropriate weapons" near the southern town of Ramiyeh, indicating the small drone was shot down. The paramilitary group now has the drone in its possession.

However, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) denied its surveillance drone was shot down, only saying it had crashed in the pre-dawn hours of Monday morning. The IDF affirmed it had been conducting a reconnaissance mission in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Hezbollah is gaining quite a large degree of sophistication in terms of taking out Israeli drones; one has to wonder just what Israel's next move here will be, because they have always stated that their military superiority over Hezbollah cannot be overcome.

It appears that Hezbollah... has proven Israel wrong.

Purdue Pharma Expected To File Bankruptcy Amid Settlement Negotiations "Hitting An Impasse"

The makers of Oxycontin, Purdue Pharma, are now expected to file for bankruptcy after settlement talks regarding the nation's opioid crisis have "hit an impasse", according to ABC News.

This impasse puts Purdue's federal trial over the opioid epidemic on track to start next month and sets the stage for significant legal drama involving state and local governments.

Purdue had been working for months to try and avoid trial by determining the company's responsibility for the crisis, which has cost over 400,000 Americans their lives. But an email from the attorneys general of Tennessee and North Carolina revealed that Purdue and the Sackler family had rejected two offers from the states over how payments would be handled as a result of a settlement.

Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery and North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein wrote in their message:

Students Prevented From Attending UK School Because They Refuse To Wear "Gender Neutral" Uniforms

Female students at a school in the UK were prevented by officials and police from attending class because they refused to comply with a new “gender neutral” uniform policy.

Around 100 students protested outside the gates of Priory School in Lewes in response to a letter sent at the end of the summer advising they would be mandated to wear trousers at all times.

The school claimed that the policy change was put in place to “address inequality,” and be “inclusive,” but students and parents were outraged.

Mueller Helped Saudis Cover Up Involvement In 9/11 Attacks: Lawsuit

Robert Mueller - pitched as an incorruptible beacon of justice when he was tasked with (unsuccessfully) hunting down ties between Donald Trump and Russia - was nothing more than a hatchet man for the deep state, who participated in a coverup of Saudi Arabia's role in 9/11 according to a new report by the New York Post's Paul Sperry - citing former FBI investigators and a new lawsuit by 9/11 victims.

According to Sperry, Mueller stonewalled after FBI agents discovered evidence of "multiple, systemic efforts by the Saudi government to assist the hijackers in the lead-up to the 9/11 attacks," while the former FBI director allegedly "covered up evidence pointing back to the Saudi Embassy and Riyadh — and may have even misled Congress about what he knew."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by these revelations.

This man is absolutely a product, and a tool, of the viciously vile, and thoroughly corrupted, US Deep State, which works to accomplish its own agendas, and not those of the American People.

The planning and execution of 9/11 took a vast army of some of the highest members of the American government at the time; should this lawsuit be allowed to move forward (and I am not holding my breath on this), names will be named at a level of government complicity which may shock many Americans, who still believe that the only things that the US government wants to happen, are all for our good; in the case of the aftermath of 9/11, nothing could have been further from the truth than that sentiment.

Fusion Centers, Citizen Spies and the Debasement of the American Character

By Karen Melton Stewart

No matter if you are in the “Trump-resistance” or a QAnon Patriot, it is likely significant numbers of you have been successfully debased by your state Fusion Centers, despite political leanings. Only raw avarice and a total disregard for the Constitution is needed.

For those who do not know what a Fusion Center is, it was decided after 9/11 that the Federal, State, and local authorities were failing to sufficiently communicate with each other in regard to terror threats, so Fusion Centers were created in each state to “fuse” information and share it in one central location. Depending on the physical size of the state and its population, there could be one to three Fusion Centers in a state...

US Waives Human Rights Conditions To Release $1.3BN In Military Aid To Sisi's Egypt

Aside from Saudi Arabia's MbS, the other long forgotten about Middle East autocratic ally of the United States known for arresting journalists, authors and activists is President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

The strongman known lately for aggressively cracking down on civil liberties, including muzzling journalists and throwing media figures and activists in jail, is also set to rule for another solid decade, given months ago Egyptian parliament approved constitutional changes to allow the sitting president to stay in power until 2030.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if this sends you into a near projectile vomit episode, please remember the following: The US sends Israel billions every year Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II. To date, the United States has provided Israel $142.3 billion (current, or noninflation-adjusted, dollars) in bilateral assistance and missile defense funding., and of course, there is an absolute waiver of rights on how Israel treats the Palestinians.

Google, Twitter, Facebook Met Government Officials To Devise Election Measures

Representatives for Google, Facebook and Twitter met with DHS officials at Facebook’s headquarters to devise 2020 election measures against the spread of “fake news” on candidates earlier this week.

The meeting at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, offices involved officials from the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Bloomberg reported.

It is worth noting that the DHS stated in February that the agency would “double down” against election hacking efforts from foreign states according to Chris Krebs, who leads DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). The new agency arm of the DHS was created last year in a bill called Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act that was silently passed through Congress as Activist Post reported...

US Army Major (Ret.): We Are Living In The Wreckage Of The War On Terror

Authored by US Army Major (ret.) Danny Sjursen via AntiWar.com,

It has taken me years to tell these stories. The emotional and moral wounds of the Afghan War have just felt too recent, too raw. After all, I could hardly write a thing down about my Iraq War experience for nearly ten years, when, by accident, I churned out a book on the subject. Now, as the American war in Afghanistan – hopefully – winds to something approaching a close, it’s finally time to impart some tales of the madness. In this new, recurring, semi-regular series, the reader won’t find many worn out sagas of heroism, brotherhood, and love of country. Not that this author doesn’t have such stories, of course. But one can find those sorts of tales in countless books and numerous trite, platitudinal Hollywood yarns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are many such stories, yet to be written, by competent, compassionate military leaders; and the more that this information becomes a big part of public "fabric of understanding" about the reasons for, and nature of, wars, I would like to hope that the American public will put full (and completely peaceful) pressure to bear against its government, to "cage the rage, and engage" with foreign governments to achieve their geopolitical objectives, without launching a missile, or firing a single shot.

I have many times volunteered to President Trump to found the first US Department of Peace, tasked with giving this country's government rational alternatives to war; unfortunately, such a US Department does not seem at all to his liking.

New Orleans, LA — Take away the political corruption, bribery scandals, increased accidents, and police state issues with Red Light Cameras and we are still left with a system that is rooted in the removal of due process. After the corporatist red light camera industry spread through the nation like a cancer for more than a decade, people are finally beginning to realize their inherently despotic nature. Kind of.

The city of New Orleans is now on the hook to repay more than 200,000 drivers who’ve fallen victim to the city’s entirely unconstitutional red light camera system. Drivers who’ve gotten one of the expensive $110-$150 tickets between the years 2008 and 2010 are now due a refund — plus interest — according to a recent court ruling...

HOW SYRIA DEFEATED THE 2012-2019 INVASION BY US & AL-QAEDA

SOURCE: STRATEGIC-CULTURE.ORG
On August 31st, the brilliant anonymous German intelligence analyst who blogs as “Moon of Alabama” headlined “Syria – Coordinated Foreign Airstrike Kills Leaders Of Two Al-Qaeda Aligned Groups”, and he reported that,“Some three hours ago an air- or missile strike in Syria’s Idleb governorate hit a meeting of leaders of the al-Qaeda aligned Haras-al-Din and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) aka Jabhat al-Nusra. Both were killed. It is likely that leaders of other Jihadist groups were also present. The hit completely destroyed a Haras al-Din guesthouse or headquarter. The Syrian Observatory says that more than 40 people were killed in the strike. The hit will make it much easier for the Syrian army campaign to liberate Idleb governorate.”

Grieving dad jailed for repeatedly criticizing court system in Macomb County

He lost a custody battle, then his son lost his life. He blames the court system. He voiced his strong opinions on social media and the next thing he knew he was locked in jail.

“He was so full of life,” said Deborah Vanderhagen of her grandson. “I am trying not to cry.”

On September 22 it will be the two-year anniversary of the day Deborah Vanderhagen’s grandson Killian lost his life. She believes her son Jonathan Vanderhagen is justified in feeling the court cost her grandson his life. He died in the custody of his mom after her son asked for sole custody.

“His lawyer said something is going to happen to this child. You need to get him away from the mother. There are too many red flags. And the judge said, oh that is in the past,” said Deborah Vanderhagen.

Judge Rachel Rancilio saw the posts, many of which are publicly targeted at her. She apparently felt uncomfortable and possibly threatened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you still feel that the First Amendment protects free speech, you had better think again, after reading this article.

Losing a kid, particularly under the circumstances in this case, has to be horrific in the extreme; but what Vanderhagen failed to understand, is that the US Court System will vigorously defend and exonerate itself in any way it feels necessary, should charges be leveled against it, no matter that the actual truth of a case may align against it.

I am hoping, and praying, that some attorney with some real guts and moral fortitude, will file an "amicus curiae brief" when Vanderhoven goes to trial.

"Amicus Curiae" (from Google) in Latin, means a "friend of the court.

Frequently, a person or group who is not a party to an action, but has a strong interest in the matter, will petition the court for permission to submit a brief in the action with the intent of influencing the court's decision.

I hope that this man is not convicted, but is mandated to undergo some kind of compassionate counseling, to deal with his loss and grief; however, the judge who gave the kid's mother guardianship, should be concretely reprimanded for not understanding that sometimes, mom is NOT the best person to care for a child, after a split from the Dad.

South Africans Setting Fire To Other African Migrants In Wave Of Xenophobic Attacks

Xenophobic violence is flaring once again in South Africa, where black South Africans are setting fire to other African migrants and attacking foreign-owned businesses.

“Rioters looted shops, created flaming barricades on roads and engaged in street fights with police, as attacks on immigrants and foreign-owned businesses increase,” reported RT.

“Some 50 businesses were looted and damaged on Sunday alone. It’s the second outbreak of such violence in the country in the space of a week.”

Shocking video shows black South Africans setting fire to other African migrants in the street.

Zari
@ZariTheBosslady
Pray for foreigners in South Africa. No one deserves this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are some crucial sister stories regarding these events, one appearing three days ago, and on in May of this year.

Here is the story from three days ago:

Years of impunity for xeonphonic crimes driving the latest attacks

The May story is reported as follows:

South Africa Has An Anti-Immigration Problem, And It Looks A Lot Like America's

With a crucial election looming, populist and nationalist rhetoric put forward by world leaders like President Trump is making xenophobia in South Africa worse.

The article then goes on to state the following: 'African nationals living in South Africa — whether as undocumented migrants, asylum-seekers, refugees, or citizens — have long struggled for full inclusion in society. But advocates say that their situation has worsened as elections approach and that the rise of global nationalism, particularly in the US from President Donald Trump, is to blame.

South Africans will cast their votes on May 8 in the first election since a massive corruption scandal took down the country’s last elected president, Jacob Zuma. Immigrant rights advocates worry not only that politicians will continue to use Africans as scapegoats but that the acts of violence committed against them will get worse in the so-called Rainbow Nation.'

But what Ms. Griffin has chosen to do, by blaming President Trump for tensions against both US and South African illegal immigrants, then conflating that concern against all legal immigrants in both the US and South Africa, is intellectually dishonest in the extreme, and let me document why.

Infectious diseases making Border Crisis Worse

And when illegal aliens become a part of the homeless population, there is real, factually documented, evidence is to what is happening here;

Why midieval diseases are hitting cities hard

Typhus and Tuberculosis spreading among America's homeless population

So why should all, or at least a good 99% of America's immigrants be "legal immigrants"?!? FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

Newly Arrived Immigrants and Refugees

The article then goes on to state:

'The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) mandates that all immigrants and refugees undergo a medical screening examination to identify inadmissible health conditions. An authorized panel physician in the applicant’s country of origin is responsible for performing the screening examination before departure. Applicants who adjust their immigration status after arriving in the United States undergo a medical screening by a civil surgeon.

A panel physician is a medical doctor practicing outside the United States who has an agreement with a US embassy or consulate general to conduct preimmigration medical screening examinations; >600 panel physicians perform these examinations internationally. A civil surgeon is a US physician authorized by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to perform official immigration medical examinations required for the adjustment of status after arrival in the United States (the process of becoming a permanent US resident). The CDC Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) issues Technical Instructions to panel physicians and civil surgeons and monitors the quality of the premigration medical examination process.

CDC also issues recommendations for pre­migration health interventions for special popu­lations, such as refugees (see www.cdc.gov/immigrantrefugeehealth/guidelines/overseas/overseas-guidelin...). Recommended health interventions (such as treatment for parasitic diseases) are not required under the INA but may be implemented based on level of risk in the origin country.'

Yes, on occasion, xenophobia is a convenient "flag to wave" against problems created by the presence of illegal aliens, because the government of the country making those charges, is either too lazy, or too impotent, to deal with the issues in a moral, compassionate, and meaningful way.

So I would like to politely caution Ms. Griffin that the only values which will ultimately save both the US and South Africa from the horrendous returns of diseases once thought to have been eradicated, are those of a thorough, and consistent application of medical logic to all immigrants and refugees in both countries.

Amazon Chaos: "BlackRock Is Literally Reaping Profits As The World's Jungles Burn"

According to a new report from the Friends of the Earth U.S.; Amazon Watch; and Profundo, Larry Fink's BlackRock Inc is one of the top investors in companies "responsible for tropical forest destruction in the Amazon and around the world."

The report called BlackRock's Big Deforestation Problem, published on Amazon Watch's website, claims BlackRock is the top three shareholders in 25 of the world's biggest publicly traded deforestation-risk companies; these companies are known for producing soya, beef, palm oil, pulp and paper, rubber and timber, but also have a long track record in burning down forests to clear land for agriculture purposes. The New York-based investment bank is also a top ten shareholder in another 50 of the world's top deforestation-risk companies, the report added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But because of the wealth of their Principals, and how they fund local, national, and international elections, none of the people who have signed off on these investments will ever be apprehended, accused of any crime, or serve any time; they will continue to be horrifically misrepresented as "solid corporate citizens", when all available evidence consistently points to the polar opposite.

What's wrong with this picture?!? BLOODY EVERYTHING!!

Trucking Recession: Heavy-Duty Truck Orders Collapse, Production Slashed, Cancellation Orders Soar

New reports from the trucking industry show the transportation recession continues to gain momentum through the end of summer, likely to continue through 2019 into 1H20.

The US trucking industry had a blockbuster year in 2018, as high demand for freight allowed transportation companies to expand fleets. But since freight demand was artificial, sparked by importers pulling forward to get ahead of tariffs, the good times were destined to end and end rather sharply.

The Institute for Supply Management's purchasing managers index plunged to 49.1 in August, the first time a contraction has been seen since 2016. Prints below 50 suggest the manufacturing economy is shrinking. Data also showed new orders dropped to a seven-year low, while the production index hit 2015 lows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These... are real numbers, folks; not the "feel-good, data-massaged" codswallop we get from the Federal Government, to make everything seem wonderful, economically, when it absolutely is not.

"Nobody's F**king Business" - Epstein Buried In Unmarked Grave

Roughly one month after he was found dead of an alleged suicide by hanging at his jail cell in Manhattan, the location of the body of pedophile and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein has finally been confirmed.

Epstein's body was buried at the IJ Morris Star of David cemetery in West Palm Beach, the Mirror reports. He was buried next to his parents, Seymour and Paula.

To make it harder for vandals to defile his grave, Epstein was placed in an unmarked grave. Also, the names of his parents were removed from their tombstones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF actually true, that would mean that any Freedom of Information request to have the body exhumed, to enable forensic pathologists to determine the actual cause of death, could not be met; how convenient.

Move along, folks, nothing to see here; but as I have mentioned many times before, the monied rarely eat their own.

The Pedogate Scandal Behind the Deep State Conspiracy“

good job.”

It’s entirely true: the efforts that are reflexively undertaken to cover up the greatest crimes perpetrated by the U.S. Federal Government are as complex and convoluted as they are incomprehensible.

If the American people knew what really went on regarding notorious pedovore Jeffrey Epstein and his clandestine relationship with Attorney General William Barr, they would retch with utter disgust and revulsion.

Israel Launches Unprovoked Attacks: Uses Its Firepower, Far And Wide

Israel recently has been expanding its military attacks across much of the Middle East, hitting multiple countries. The aggressive campaign far outpaces anything any adversaries of Israel have been doing to it, or even trying unsuccessfully to do to it. Over the past two years Israel has used combat aircraft to conduct scores of attacks in Syria. Israel has stayed silent about most of this campaign of bombardment, but when it speaks it says the targets it hits are associated with Iran. The most recent widening of Israel's assaults have involved Lebanon, including drone attacks on facilities in suburban Beirut associated with Hezbollah ... The most dramatic geographic widening of the Israeli assault came last month with multiple attacks, reportedly conducted with F-35s, in Iraq - which, of course, does not even border Israel.

Israel tried to sink an American vessel in international waters and killed 34 and wounded 174. No punishment no condemnation of the Jewish nation of Israel.

US MILITARY SURROUNDING VENEZUELA WITH NEW DEPLOYMENT IN GUYANA

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

The US military has effectively surrounded Venezuela, ahead of a possible military intervention.

We've reported in the past that the Pentagon is jointly working with Colombia, Brazil and other regional partners on how to crush Venezuela's economy so that President Nicolás Maduro would step down.

Now there's a new report that the US military has been deployed to the impoverished South American nation of Guyana, the first time in a decade. The country is located on South America's North Atlantic coast and borders Venezuela to the West.

get very nasty here, and very quickly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what, pray tell, will Russia and China do, if the US attempts a military intervention here?!?

One thing I am betting against, is that neither the Russia Duma, nor the Chinese Parliament are going to be holding hands, and singing "Kumbya" at these developments

And we have a companion story, also appearing in zerohedge.com, which reads as follows: Venezuelan Military holding war games on Columbia's border The article goes on to state:

'Venezuelan armed forces will hold military drills on the border with Colombia, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro said on Tuesday.

"I have ordered to hold military drills along the western border on September 10-28," Maduro said in a speech broadcast on Twitter.

Maduro also ordered to strengthen security on the border with Colombia. "I ordered the strategic operational command of the Venezuelan Armed Forces and all military units stationed at the border to declare the orange danger code due to the possibility of an aggression from Colombia toward Venezuela," he said.

Last week the Colombian authorities accused the Venezuelan government of sheltering and assisting members of the militant group Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) who earlier announced their return to armed resistance'.

Folks, things may be getting ready to get very nasty, very quickly.

US offered ship captain money in bid to seize Iranian tanker in Gulf: Report

US representative for Iran offered 'several million' to captain of Iranian ship seized off Gibraltar, Financial Times reports.

A senior US State Department official offered money to the captain of an Iranian tanker that was seized off the coast of Gibraltar in early July as part of the Trump administration's "maximum pressure" campaign, the Financial Times newspaper reported.

Brian Hook, the US special representative for Iran, offered "several million dollars" to the captain of the Iranian Grace 1 vessel, which was detained off the coast of Gibraltar on 4 July amid suspicion it was going to deliver oil to Syria.

Hook sent an email to captain Akhilesh Kumar four days before Washington imposed sanctions on the supertanker in August, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Either Captain Akhilesh Kumar is a true Iranian patriot; or he had very clear understanding of what would happen to him, and his family, should he have taken US deal.

US State Dept Program Offers $15 Million for Info on Iran Revolutionary Guards

The US State Department has unveiled a new $15 million “reward program” for anyone who provides information on the financial inner workings of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, in an attempt to further disrupt them.

The program comes after the US declared the Revolutionary Guards “terrorists,” but remains very unusual, in as much as it targets an agency of a national government instead of just some random militant group.

Some analysts say they expect a backlash against the program, as further harming European and other international diplomatic efforts with Iran. US Special Envoy Brian Hook insisted, however, that the US wasn’t trying to harm diplomacy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Heavenly Ned, with all the monies already allocated to it, is this the BEST the State Department can do?!?

State Department, please; this is a moment when you should be collectively hanging your heads in shame. Of course, people who work at the State Department have had shame, or any sense of conscience, surgically removed before they accepted their jobs.

The roots of this technology can be found in programs from DARPA and other military-directed research that is primarily intended for mind control and the performance enhancement of soldiers.

Nunes: Fusion GPS Bank Records Show Payments from Clinton Campaign and DNC

“I was often smeared,” Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox News. “And now, what we know is, there’s a link between those who were doing the smearing and Fusion GPS.”

“When we were investigating Fusion GPS, they were actively involved in working to smear me to obstruct justice, to derail our investigation — and so, I’m gonna hold these guys accountable, and this is just one of many steps we’re gonna continue to take,” continued Nunes.
Nunes filed a $9.9 million federal conspiracy lawsuit in the Eastern District of Virginia alleging that the Fusion GPS behind the anti-Trump Steele dossier coordinated with another group to file several fraudulent and harassing ethics complaints intended to derail his investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Color me completely unsurprised by this turn of events; we did expect that this information would ultimately come out. It was only a matter of time.

'US TO PULL 5,000 TROOPS FROM AFGHANISTAN, SHUT BASES WITHIN 135 DAYS'

SOURCE: INDIATIMES.COM
KABUL: The United States would withdraw almost 5,000 troops from Afghanistan and close five bases within 135 days under a draft peace accord agreed with the Taliban, the chief US negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said on Monday.

The deal, reached after months of negotiations with representatives from the insurgent movement, must still be approved by US President Donald Trump before it can be signed, Khalilzad said in an interview with Tolo News television. "In principle, we have got there," he said.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has been briefed on a draft of the accord and will look at details of the deal before giving an opinion, his spokesman said on Monday.

In exchange for the phased withdrawal, the Taliban would commit not to allow Afghanistan to be used by militants to plot attacks on the US and its allies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sounds great; but I am not holding my breath here, until I see a consummation of this agreement from all parties which were signatories to it.

GOV. GREG ABBOTT ISSUES EIGHT EXECUTIVE ORDERS AIMED AT STOPPING POTENTIAL MASS SHOOTERS

SOURCE: TEXASTRIBUNE.ORG
Gov. Greg Abbott issued eight executive orders Thursday in response to last month’s mass shootings in El Paso and Odessa.

“Texas must achieve several objectives to better protect our communities and our residents from mass shootings,” Abbott said in a statement. “I will continue to work expeditiously with the legislature on laws to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals, while safeguarding the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding Texans.”

The orders focus largely on strengthening law enforcement’s ability to respond to and prevent future shootings, mainly through improving reporting channels and closing "information gaps" when members of the public or law enforcement agencies worry that a person might be a threat to commit violence. But, Abbott's office added in a news release, "legislative solutions are still needed."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Governor Abbott, a word, please; it appears that you feel compelled to "do something" about horrendous mass shootings in your state.

One of the logical things you could do, is to see if any people doing these kinds of acts, are on any chemical medications to treat depression, etc., which means that the name of the person's Doctor needs to be on every gun application for a fire arm which gets inspected for approval, or denial.

I do not know if any of your Cabinet has seen this website, but as you pursue your desire to keep the citizens of Texas safe, please have someone look at the following website:

www.ssristories.org.

When suicidal, or homicidal thoughts happen with people on these kinds of "serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors", it usually when people are just starting, or trying to get off these drugs.

You are welcome, Governor Abbott.

NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: US VISA CAN BE DENIED IF YOU (OR EVEN YOUR FRIENDS) ARE CRITICAL OF AMERICAN POLICIES

SOURCE: STRATEGIC-CULTURE.ORG
(SC Op-Ed) — There have been several interesting developments in the United States government’s war on free speech and privacy.

First of all, the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP), which is responsible for actual entry of travelers into the country, has now declared that it can legally access phones and computers at ports of entry to determine if there is any subversive content which might impact on national security.

“Subversive content” is, of course, subjective, but those seeking entry can be turned back based on how a border control agent perceives what he is perusing on electronic media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have been in denial about living in a "soft, but hardening" dictatorship", I think the above article should be a very strident wake-up call, that you have been utterly dead wrong about this.

Unfortunately, neither Mike nor I can ever visit Israel; and as a Christian pacifist activist, I would love to go.

But sadly, as people who want to see both a flowering Israel and a flowering Palestine, and do support BDS, because economics is a language Israelis understand well, I understand fully, that this can never happen.

Given this reality, we would probably get so physically beaten up at Ben-Gurion Airport,courtesy of the IDF, and thrown, head first, on a flight back to the mainland, that we would most probably be wheelchair-bound for the rest of our lives, were we idiotic enough to try to go.

Hell, look at what happened to peace activists on the Flotilla of the Mari Marave, 2010: As mentioned in wikipedia.com: Gaza Flotilla Raid, 2010 The article goes on to state:

" The Gaza flotilla raid was a military operation by Israel against six civilian ships of the "Gaza Freedom Flotilla" on 31 May 2010 in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea. Nine activists were killed on one ship during the raid and ten Israeli soldiers were wounded, one seriously. One further Turkish activist died later of his wounds. Three of the six flotilla ships, organized by the Free Gaza Movement and the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief (İHH), were carrying humanitarian aid and construction materials, with the intention of breaking the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip. Israel had warned the flotilla to abort their mission, describing it as a provocation.[1]

So, peace activists, desperately trying to bring humanitarian aid into Gaza, and their travels to get there, are characterized by the Israeli government as a "provocation"?!?

Kindly remember this incident, when any Pro-Israeli Influencer you know, tries, desperately to remind you, that "Israel is the 'only democracy in the Middle East'.
And also, take a look at how Israel is briskly annexing lots of land in Gaza, the West Bank,and East Jerusalem, the result of which will be the prevention of a contiguous State of Palestine... from ever being realized.

STRANGE THINGS ARE HAPPENING ON EPSTEIN ISLAND: DRONE FOOTAGE

SOURCE: VIGILANT CITIZEN

Recent drone footage of Little Saint James reveals strange activity and telling facts about the Jeffrey Epstein investigation since his death. As expected, everything points towards a massive cover-up. Here are the most revealing images captured by drones in the past weeks.

Ever since Jeffrey Epstein’s highly suspicious death in a maximum-security prison, things only got more suspicious. Although the autopsy officially concluded that the cause of death was suicide, a steady flow of facts and revelations are strongly hinting towards a massive cover-up.

HUSTLE AND BUSTLE
Considering the fact that LittLe Saint James was the site of heinous crimes involving powerful people, one would expect the island to be treated like a crime scene that is completely closed off to non-investigators. That is not what is happening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rich seldom eat their own.

And yes, these images are very disturbing.

But please remember: there is an unofficial category of "cleaners", from various of the US alphabet soup agencies, who are designated as "site cleaners", when exculpatory evidence is left behind, to clean up, and obfuscate what really happened as much as humanly possible.
