LIST: Top Facebook Executives and Their Career Links to the DC Swamp

With Facebook taking a very strong stance against so-called fake news and foreign interference in what passes for democracy in the United States and particularly given its recent association with the Atlantic Council and its Digital Forensic Research Lab. I would be remiss if I didn't thank Matt Agorist at the Free Thought Project, one of the entities that was purged by Facebook in October 2018, for inspiring this posting

In no particular order, let's look at some of Facebook's key personnel and their relationship to Washington:

Supporting Israel is now ‘liability’ for Democrats, but ’60 Minutes’ doesn’t trouble Pelosi about it

Yesterday in a surprising move, Nancy Pelosi met with three British members of Parliament who have left the Labour Party over its position on Israel, which they say is anti-Semitic. Pelosi tweeted the meeting with the message that we must fight anti-semitism everywhere.

The meeting was another sign that Pelosi is going to lay down the law on support for Israel. Remember, she has said that the Capitol will crumble and fall before the Democratic Party abandons its support for Israel. Remember, that she groveled at AIPAC 3 weeks ago without a word of criticism of Netanyahu, despite appeals by liberal Zionists to do so.

Then last night “60 Minutes” did a glowing profile of Nancy Pelosi as the progressive dragonslayer opposed to Donald Trump, the force that will keep the Democratic Party unified, and Israel was never mentioned. There was brief reference to the new progressive wave in the party. Pelosi got to dismiss those women out of hand and claim the mantle for herself:

 MICROPLASTICS FOUND IN 'PRISTINE' WILDERNESS

Scientists have found that a secluded region in the Pyrenees mountains - previously considered pristine wilderness - is covered with airborne microplastics.

A team from Strathclyde and Toulouse universities spent five months in the area, which straddles France and Spain.

They estimate that each day an average of 365 tiny plastic fragments or fibres settled on every square metre of land.

The nearest major city - Toulouse - is about 75 miles away.

Researchers collected samples from what they considered to be an uncontaminated area in south west France, about four miles from the nearest village.

Samples from monitoring devices were analysed to identify whether the tiny plastic pieces, invisible to the naked eye and less than five millimetres long, were present in the mountain range.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is serious; plastics pollution, can really damage the environment, and our scientists need to be paying attention on how to deal with it, and what can reasonably be done.

POLICE USE DRONES TO SPY ON SUSPICIOUS PEOPLE AT "POTENTIAL CRIME SCENES"

For years, law enforcement has been claiming that drones will only be used for natural disasters, crime scene investigations, car accidents and rescue operations.

That is the bill of goods, being sold to the public but it is all a lie.

A perfect example of how law enforcement promises the public one thing and after time passes, uses it for something else is taking place in Texas at the Memorial Villages Police Department (MVPD).

Two years ago, Click2Houston reported how the MVPD claimed that they would only use drones for "better emergency response during disasters." They also used police officer and UAV pilot, Larry Boggus to solidify their claim that drones would only be used for natural disasters saying, "drones are a huge asset for us because very quickly we were able to see the amount of houses that were damaged" during a 2018 storm.

I love it when police department's provide comic relief to prove my point.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks to me, as though they are combining the worst parts of drone technology, which is "Robcop goes Full "Minority Report."

UNSEALED AFFIDAVIT TRIES TO PUT WIKILEAKS IN CAHOOTS WITH THE TALIBAN, BIN LADEN

On Monday a federal judge in Virginia unsealed the original 2017 affidavit and criminal complaint on which Assange's extradition request to the US is based, offering new details including chat logs between Assange and former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea (then Bradley) Manning, which attempt to support a single count of “conspiracy to commit computer intrusion” which may or may not have succeeded.

The US alleges Assange actively sought for and encouraged Manning to crack a password to access classified information on a Defense Department network; the affidavit claims details related to this charge, for instance chat log discussions between the pair over how to crack a password, though the affidavit notes that "it remains unknown whether Manning and Assange were successful in cracking the password," related to the conspiracy charge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry folks, but the US Department of Justice (now known as just-US!!)has well and truly jumped the proverbial shark on this one.

And the attempt to describe "collusion" between Wikileaks, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda working together?!? Please, don't get me started!!

I am hoping and praying that Assange has an absolute "dream team" working for him, to get these charges dropped.

The Media’s 7 Years of Lies about Julian Assange Won’t Stop Now

For seven years, from the moment Julian Assange first sought refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, they have been telling us we were wrong, that we were paranoid conspiracy theorists. We were told there was no real threat of Assange’s extradition to the United States, that it was all in our fevered imaginations.

For seven years, we have had to listen to a chorus of journalists, politicians and “experts” telling us that Assange was nothing more than a fugitive from justice, and that the British and Swedish legal systems could be relied on to handle his case in full accordance with the law. Barely a “mainstream” voice was raised in his defence in all that time.

From the moment he sought asylum, Assange was cast as an outlaw. His work as the founder of Wikileaks – a digital platform that for the first time in history gave ordinary people a glimpse into the darkest recesses of the most secure vaults in the deepest of Deep States – was erased from the record.

My Obamacare Nightmare: Yes, the Government Can Terminate Your Healthcare

By Brenton Smith

For most politicians, the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”) is simply wedge politics. Democrats see the program as a lasting legacy to their party and are unwilling to admit there is a problem with ACA. Republicans, on the other hand, tend to see its shortcomings as a political gift from heaven and are unwilling to fix even the most appalling problems with the program’s operations.

For the people stuck in-between these fixtures of politics—the self-insured—the Affordable Care Act is an ongoing nightmare and a caustic warning for anyone dreaming about Medicare for All. I know because I’m one of them...

Julian Assange: Political Prisoner

Repressive governments do not want their citizens to know that they are up to so they insist on controlling the media. We are taught, at the same time, that we have a free press whose job it is to uncover the corruption in our system so that we can demand our political leaders make some changes or face unemployment. That, we are told, is what makes us different from the totalitarian.

The arrest of Assange is a canary in a coal mine to warn us that something is very wrong with our system.

The Fake Charge Against Julian Assange Proves That the US Government Has No Integrity

Let’s be sure that we understand that Assange is not charged with anything related to Russia or Russiagate or even with breaking a law. Assange is charged with being in a conspiracy with Manning “to commit computer intrusion.” The charge is not that Assange succeeded in hacking a government computer and obtaining classified information. It merely says that Assange discussed the possibility with Manning and had an intention to hack a computer. Most likely, even this noncrime is an invention of prosecutors instructed to indict Assange in the absence of any evidence. It is all that they could come up with.

VIDEO: HOW THE PENTAGON AND CIA PUSH VENEZUELA REGIME-CHANGE PROPAGANDA IN VIDEO GAMES

We often think of video games as fiction, but the US government has weaponized them to advance its agenda around the globe. Nowhere is this more clear than in Venezuela, where the US military has laundered regime change propaganda through some of the world’s most popular first-person shooter games. This March, amid a US-backed right-wing coup attempt overseen by the Donald Trump administration, Venezuela experienced a sudden collapse of its electrical infrastructure, plunging the country into darkness.

White House ignores Yemen war foes' meeting request as bill nears Trump's desk

White House staff has stonewalled for more than a week a group of lawmakers asking for a meeting with President Trump in a bid to convince him to sign legislation ending the U.S. role in Yemen's civil war.

Despite an official veto recommendation from White House staff, Trump has continued to appear open-minded, saying Wednesday that the matter was "very serious" and that he would have more to say later.

Sponsors of the legislation believe Trump is willing to sign the bill, but is being told by his staff, led by national security adviser John Bolton, that he should not.

"I feel from some of his statements that he's genuinely conflicted," said Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., who signed a bipartisan letter seeking a meeting. "I think his advisers are at odds with where he is ... advisers in the administration have their own interests and may not be giving him the full picture."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, the US enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen, is barbaric, and should be stopped in its tracks.

And on this issue, I can assure you, that history is going to judge you very harshly on your having "doubled down" with the Saudis; and I would like to hope that someone you trust, perhaps, has mentioned to you that the only solution possible here... is not military, but political.

US-Russia chill stirs worry about stumbling into conflict

WASHINGTON – It has the makings of a new Cold War, or worse.

The deep chill in U.S.-Russian relations is stirring concern in some quarters that Washington and Moscow are in danger of stumbling into an armed confrontation that, by mistake or miscalculation, could lead to nuclear war.

American and European analysts and current and former U.S. military officers say the nuclear superpowers need to talk more. A foundational arms control agreement is being abandoned and the last major limitation on strategic nuclear weapons could go away in less than two years. Unlike during the Cold War, when generations lived under threat of a nuclear Armageddon, the two militaries are barely on speaking terms.

"During the Cold War, we understood each other's signals. We talked," says the top NATO commander in Europe, U.S. Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, who is about to retire. "I'm concerned that we don't know them as well today."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These men should be meeting weekly, so that everyone understands what is going on and why, so that the possibility of a all-our war becomes minimized through miscommunication, or "glitch".

There has to be a military version of "Skype" which can be used by both the US and Russians.

Displaced Syrians Leaving Rukban Camp Say US Occupation Forces Starved Thousands of Camp Residents

A new batch of displaced Syrians on Saturday left al-Rukban Camp in al-Tanf area near the Syrian-Jordanian borders and arrived in Jleigem corridor so as to be transferred to makeshift centers in Homs.

The process comes within the framework of the Syrian State's efforts to end the tragedy of tens of thousands of displaced citizens who have been trapped for years in the Rukban camp by US occupation forces and their affiliated terrorists positioned in al-Tanf.

SANA reporter said that tens of displaced families, most of them children, women and elderly, arrived Saturday noon at Jleigem corridor on board of trucks and tractors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not the first time the American military have been criticized for their handling of displace Syrians at this particular camp.

Judicial Watch Uncovers ‘Cover-Up’ Discussions in Latest Production of Clinton Email Documents

Judicial Watch announced today that it uncovered 422 pages of FBI documents showing evidence of “cover-up” discussions related to the Clinton email system within Platte River Networks, one of the vendors who managed the Clinton email system. The documents also show Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) Charles McCullough forwarding “concerns” about classified information in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

The new documents uncovered by Judicial Watch also contain Clinton’s 2009 classified information Non-Disclosure Agreement bearing her signature.

An October 2016 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice?(No. 1:16-cv-02046)) forced the release of the new FBI documents. Judicial Watch lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to comply with a July 7, 2016, FOIA request seeking:

THE US GOVERNMENT WON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR DEFINITION OF JOURNALISM AFTER THE ASSANGE PRECEDENT IS SET

So in the past few days, editorials like this one from free press avatar Peter Greste have popped up all over the place with their own definitions of what journalism is in order to argue why that label can’t possibly apply to Assange. All of these definitions ultimately boil down to the argument that because Assange doesn’t publish leaks in a way that they feel journalism ought to be practiced, it isn’t journalism and therefore sets no legal precedent for journalists around the world. As though the US government is going to be consulting their feelings about what specifically constitutes journalism the next time they decide to imprison a journalist for doing what Assange did.

SECRET REPORT REVEALS SAUDI INCOMPETENCE AND WIDESPREAD USE OF U.S. WEAPONS IN YEMEN

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
SINCE THE BRUTAL murder of Saudi dissident and Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi last October, Congress has increasingly pressured the Trump administration to stop backing the Saudi Arabia-led coalition fighting in Yemen and halt U.S. arms sales to Riyadh. In response, President Donald Trump has repeatedly said that if the U.S. does not sell weapons to the Saudis, they will turn to U.S. adversaries to supply their arsenals.

“I don’t like the concept of stopping an investment of $110 billion into the United States,” Trump told reporters in October, referring to a collection of intent letters signed with the Saudis in the early months of his presidency. “You know what they are going to do? They’re going to take that money and spend it in Russia or China or someplace else.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, unfortunately, is what happens when a country elects a Merchant of Death in Chief, who also happens to be the President of the US.

It is also unfortunate, that he has placed every citizen of this country, into the category of being a citizen of a government which commits war crimes, as has happened, and will continue to keep happening, in Afghanistan; Iraq; Libya; Somalia; and Yemen.

ASSANGE USED EMBASSY FOR 'SPYING', SAYS ECUADOR PRESIDENT

The Ecuadoran president has defended his decision to withdraw Julian Assange's asylum status, saying that the WikiLeaks founder had tried to set up a "spying centre" from the diplomatic mission in London.

"It is unfortunate that, from our territory and with the permission of authorities of the previous government, facilities have been provided within the Ecuadorian embassy in London to interfere in processes of other states," Lenin Moreno told The Guardian newspaper on Sunday.

"We cannot allow our house, the house that opened its door to become a centre for spying. Our decision is not arbitrary but is based on international law."

On Thursday, UK police announced the arrest of Assange following the Ecuadoran government's "withdrawal of asylum".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AND... of course, his "proof"... is non-existent.

So here is the hard, unvarnished truth:Major Revelation: Assange Was Bought for $4.2 Billion – Former Ecuadorian President Confirms IMF Loan In Exchange For Assange

The article goes on to state: "Correa said that there is evidence of the agreement and that Moreno, whom Correa selected at his successor, has promised to “hand over” Assange in a 2017 meeting with Paul Manafort, former US campaign chief to Donald Trump.

Former President Correa, who broke with Moreno, also commented on visits to Ecuador by US Vice President Mike Pence.

At these times, Moreno would have promised to “help isolate Venezuela, leave the Chevron oil corporation, a company that destroyed half of the Amazon rainforest, unpunished, and to deliver Assange.”

Last month, the IMF announced approval of a $4.2 billion loan to Ecuador. The first installment, of $652 million, has already been paid.

Correa suspects that the Ecuadorian president made the decision to withdraw Assange’s asylum after WikiLeaks published documents about Moreno’s alleged relationship with a failing company, INA Papers.

The former president pointed out that the company INA Papers was registered in 2012, when Moreno was still its vice president."

Timing of such acts are never, ever "coincidence".

JAPAN STARTS FUEL REMOVAL FROM NUCLEAR PLANT

The operator of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant has begun removing nuclear fuel from a building housing one of the reactors that melted down after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

Remotely controlled equipment is lifting fuel rods from a storage pool near reactor number three.

The delicate work at the contaminated site is expected to take two years.

The next phase of the huge clean-up at reactor three will be to remove molten nuclear fuel that remains deep inside.

A spokeswoman for the Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) said the operation to remove the fuel had been delayed by earthquake debris inside the building as well as other technical issues.

Reactor buildings at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant were damaged by hydrogen explosions caused by the earthquake and tsunami. Three reactors melted down.

US MILITARY ATTACK ON VENEZUELA MULLED BY TOP TRUMP ADVISORS AND LATIN AMERICAN OFFICIALS AT PRIVATE DC MEETING

EXCLUSIVE: AWAY FROM THE PUBLIC EYE, THE CENTER FOR STRATEGIC AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES (CSIS) THINK TANK HOSTED A TOP-LEVEL, OFF-THE-RECORD MEETING TO EXPLORE US MILITARY OPTIONS AGAINST VENEZUELA.
BY MAX BLUMENTHAL

The Washington, DC-based think tank the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) hosted a private roundtable on April 10 called “Assessing the Use of Military Force in Venezuela.” A list of attendees was provided to The Grayzone and two participants confirmed the meeting took place. They refused to offer any further detail, however.

A WHO’S WHO OF TRUMP ADMINISTRATION COUP ADVISERS

The CSIS check-in list not only confirms that the Trump administration and its outside advisors are mulling options for a military assault on Venezuela; it also outlines the cast of characters involved in crafting the regime change operation against the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump, please: a word.

Have you and your colleagues in this ill-considered potential assault on Venezuela, collectively imbibed the "Koolaid" to the point where you believe that a military assault on Venezuela is both a "reasonable and moral thing" for the US government and military to do?!?

Forgive me, sir, but the candidate Trump spoke of ending these horrific wars, largely to be in control of of the world's petroleum resources; and now, as President Trump, it appears to those of us who actually believed this just might happen, understand, very clearly, that it will not happen, now that you have well and truly been "absorbed" by the Neocon Borg.

Not only are these immoral, illegal wars going to continue, under your watch, but new wars are going to be started in the name American dollar hegemony, and in terms of this Venezuela is an absolute prize. As stated at Google:

"The proven oil reserves in Venezuela are recognized as the largest in the world, totaling 297 billion barrels (4.72×1010 m3) as of 1 January 2014. ... The energy and oil ministry said it had certified an additional 12.4 billion barrels (2.0×109 m3) of proven reserves in the country's Faja del Orinoco region."

As you are aware, there are Chinese and Russian troops in place in Venezuela right now, working to protect the infrastructure as best they can, and working with the Venezuelan "top brass" in terms of protecting the country from any possible invasion from the US.

Sir, forgive me, but if your alleged "experts" here have any sense, at all, they will paraphrase what my late Grandmother used to say, if things were out of control, and there was nothing to be done, and that phrase was "The horse is already out of the barn!!"

Mr. President, when Guaido faltered, and was unable to rally the Venezuelan people to his side, the US government and military "lost the window" of opportunity for such an action. (And sir, is THIS the best our "intelligence community" could have possibly come up with?!?
The Making of Juan Guaido IF true, they should be fired, en masse!!

The American government and military could have possibly "gotten away" with an action like this, even through the 70s, or 80s; however, at this point in the 21st century, let me tell you what you are facing; and sir, forgive me, but an invasion of Venezuela is going to earn you "The Mother of All Backlashes".

1. Venezuela has never done anything to the US to warrant an invasion; it is a sovereign country where its financial woes, including a collapse in oil prices; political intrigue, and mismanagement of funds and infrastructure, coupled with US sanctions, are primarily responsible for its horrific economic situation today.

2. In light of the fact that we would be invading a sovereign country where Chinese and Russian troops are already on the ground, any attack on Chinese or Russian assets, would be tantamount to an attack against China and Russia, leaving them little choice but to react in kind. And I hope you ask yourself; would a war for Venezuela's oil reserves really be worth World War III?!?

3. Because of a lack of troop strength, the US government would be forced to go back to imposing a draft, to the anger and outrage of the American people.
And I would ad this caveat: the "booming economy" you have been touting, since nearly the beginning of your presidency, has been great for the one percenters; but not so great for a lot of the rest of us. Financial wrangling with China over trade has absolutely crucified smaller farmers here in the US, and they will not soon forget it.

4. I would very much like to remind you, sir: we cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air. The lessons of Vietnam can only be overlooked at this country's peril; any military advisors who tells you differently, are not telling you the truth.

5. The optics of such an invasion will be horrific, internationally, and the question will be asked; How could a country which holds itself in the highest moral esteem, and is perpetually in a state of self-congratulations for making good, just,and ethical decisions about foreign policy, have transformed into this rapacious, war-mongering, lunatic asylum, in which the inmates have, well and truly, taken over the asylum?!?

Mr. President, please, before it is too late, and the die is cast, abandon this course of action. Let us, for once, be "on the right side of history" by preventing this "Warmageddon" in Venezuela.

With all the US-generated hot spots around the world, where the US government is desperately trying to look like it has had a military "win", but really has not, this country has enough fires raging, geopolitically, before we set another one alight.

These three entities have been linked to various kinds of corruption including sanctions evasion for Iran, money laundering on behalf of drug cartels, provision of banking services to backers of Islamic terror organizations and controversial donations to the Clinton Foundation.

FRIGHTENING FREQUENCIES: THE DANGERS OF 5G & WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT THEM

By Jody McCutcheon

As the old saying goes, give us an inch and inevitably we’ll want a mile. And certainly, this sentiment is true with technology.

Who doesn’t want faster, bigger (or smaller), more efficient? Take wireless mobile telecommunications. Our current broadband cellular network platform, 4G (or fourth generation), allows us to transmit data faster than 3G and everything that preceded. We can access information faster now than ever before in history. What more could we want? Oh, yes, transmission speeds powerful enough to accommodate the (rather horrifying) so-called Internet of Things. Which brings us to 5G.

U.S. Gov’t Dodges Statute of Limitations Issue by Treating Assange Like a ‘Terrorist’

Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange was arrested by the Metropolitan Police in London on Thursday morning. Assange was handed over to English authorities on charges of skipping bail and at the behest of U.S. federal prosecutors who have charged him with a conspiracy to facilitate the hacking of a Department of Defense computer. But how is it that Assange has been charged with conspiracy — when the statute of limitations for it is five years and the alleged offense dates back to 2010?

4 MYTHS ABOUT JULIAN ASSANGE DEBUNKED

The indictment, and some of the commentary it engendered, also makes much of the fact that Assange offered to try to crack a computer password for Manning. The Department of Justice claims that this action amounted to Assange engaging in a “hacking” conspiracy. Even some independent commentators have suggested that it went beyond the bounds of legitimate journalism—and the protections of the First Amendment.

But did it? On Thursday, my colleague Raffi Khachaturian, who has written extensively about Assange, pointed out that, as of now, it looks like Assange didn’t do much, if anything, to crack the password once Manning sent the encrypted version. Khachaturian also pointed out that federal prosecutors have known about this text exchange for many years, and yet the Obama Administration didn’t bring any charges. “As evidence of a conspiracy,” Khachaturian writes, “the exchange is thin gruel.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Assange is convicted, it will be a death-knell for responsible, independent journalism everywhere.

And please remember; there has never been an article disproven which Assange leaked to the public. What he did was "an embarrassment" to the people in power, and that, is was unforgivable sin.

Addressing that issue, was a marvelous article, yesterday, by zerohedge.com:

Julian Assange is Guilty of Only one thing: revealing the evil soul of US Imperialism.

WORKERS FIND DOZENS OF ALLEGED SECRET GRAVES AT JUVENILE INSTITUTION WHERE BOYS WERE TORTURED, RAPED

Workers preparing to cleanup a fuel storage site near the infamous Dozier reform school—Florida’s first juvenile justice institution—discovered something far worse then pollution. Evidence of more than two dozen “clandestine” child graves was discovered as workers tested the ground.

Shockingly enough, this is the second time secret graves for tortured and raped children have been found nearby the school.

A report out of the Miami Herald detailed the horrific discovery this week:

A company hired to evaluate underground storage tanks adjacent to the Dozier School for Boys in Marianna performed a series of ground-penetrating radar tests on a parcel a little less than 500 feet from what is called the Boot Hill Cemetery at Dozier, an infamous youth prison linked to more than a century of chilling abuse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A society can be judged by how it treats the most fragile members; but the question in my mind is, how in the name of heaven did these kids wind up in one of the most reprehensibly abusive environments to which they could have possibly been sent, with absolutely no one to advocate for them ?!?

My bet is that most of them were poor, and with no cohesive family around them.

Does any child on this planet, even if they may have been "acting out" , deserve this?!? The short answer is, HELL no!

And yet, we see the pattern emerging over and over, where the rich and powerful believe that they have the "right" to indulge in these horrific behaviours because they are "different" from the the rest of us, and tend to come out of legal situations relating to this kind of behaviour, with barely the proverbial "slap on the wrist". If anyone wants any proof of this, I submit to you the trial of Jeffrey Epstein last year.

Jeffrey Epstein: sex offender reaches settlement, averting victim testimonies

I would suggest that these "testimonies" would have gotten Epstein locked away for a long, long time;, but in this country, as elsewhere, money and power buys a lot of law-breaking and impunity; that is simply the reality.

TRACKING PHONES, GOOGLE IS A DRAGNET FOR THE POLICE

echnology companies have for years responded to court orders for specific users’ information. The new warrants go further, suggesting possible suspects and witnesses in the absence of other clues. Often, Google employees said, the company responds to a single warrant with location information on dozens or hundreds of devices.

Law enforcement officials described the method as exciting, but cautioned that it was just one tool.

“It doesn’t pop out the answer like a ticker tape, saying this guy’s guilty,” said Gary Ernsdorff, a senior prosecutor in Washington State who has worked on several cases involving these warrants. Potential suspects must still be fully investigated, he added. “We’re not going to charge anybody just because Google said they were there.”

Conservative journalist ejected from Bernie Sanders rally for no reason

Conservative journalist Kaitlin Bennett, A.K.A. “Kent State Gun Girl,” was ejected from Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) rally for exercising her First Amendment rights as Democrats usher in full-blown communism in America; a country in which soon enough no one will be able to speak the truth or stand up for what is right. That’s the Democrats model for 2020.

FORMER RADICALPRESS.COM PUBLISHER ARTHUR TOPHAM ARRESTED FOR ALLEGED BREACH OF PROBATION!

Dear Supporters of Freedom of Speech,

PLEASE TAKE NOTE: this is a fundraiser for legal defense/challenge purposes.

As many of you are likely aware I was arrested again at my home in Cottonwood, B.C. on Monday, August 6th, 2018 by the Surrey based BC Hate Crime Team, allegedly for breaching my Probation Order. I was held in jail at the Quesnel, B.C. RCMP detachment while the "Team" awaited approval for a search warrant. When it was signed by a judge they entered my home and removed my computers and electronic files plus my hardcopy password book. I was released around 10 pm and driven back to my home by Cpl. Anthony Statham, lead officer for the "Team" after signing a "Promise to Appear" form stating that I would be present at the Quesnel Provincial Courthouse on October 16, 2018.

Zionist terror pits Christians vs. Muslims

MSM propagandists, including phoney alt-right outlets run by Zionists, want to confound patriots by hyping the ‘Muslim immigrant’ or ‘Islamic invasion’ threat. What they don’t want you to know about Islam is that Muslims are the world’s biggest potential allies of Christianity. Hindus and Buddhists have no use for Jesus; Jews and atheists detest Jesus, but Muslims love and revere Jesus. Given half a chance, real Muslims, the ones who pray five times a day and attend the local mosque would step forward to defend Christian holy places against pussy rioters and other vandals.

Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508), Netanyahu's family hero and role model, was the first modern Zionist. Abravanel preached a pragmatic plan to create a Jewish state in the Holy Land while taking revenge on Christians and Muslims by tricking them into fighting each other in an apocalyptic war that would destroy both religions and leave Zionist Jews masters of the world. A little over five centuries later, Abravanel's plan' hyped by Bibi's father Benzion Netanyahu' is nearing fruition.

A key Zionist weapon is Satanism.>>>

Counterfeiting Money Is a Crime — Whether Done by the Fed or A Private Individual

By Patrick Barron

A few years ago, shortly after the 2008 subprime lending disaster, the Fed sent a public relations team around the country to conduct supposedly “educational sessions” about how the Fed works and the wonderful things it does. The public was invited, and there was a question and answer session at the end of the presentation. One such session was held in Des Moines, Iowa. At the time I was teaching a course in Austrian economics at the University of Iowa, so I lusted at the prospect of hearing complete nonsense and having a shot at asking a question. I was not disappointed...

Cheney’s One-Percent Doctrine Lives On

***
After 9/11, something had changed in Cheney’s thought process. Perhaps it was the prospect of having been personally targeted by those 19 al Qaeda members on that fateful day. Or, perhaps the uncertainty of what might come next was simply too overpowering for Cheney to ever return to the measured, realistic approach to foreign policy that he once held.

On that day, the formulations of Cheney’s infamous “one-percent doctrine” came about. The one-percent doctrine went like this: If there was even a one-percent chance that a terrorist or other American enemy could pull off another 9/11 — or worse — the United States had to commit 100 percent of its time, capabilities, and efforts to thwarting that one-percent threat, no matter the cost. According to this view, despite the existence of a massive, entrenched defense and intelligence bureaucracy, the United States missed the warning signs of 9/11. Cheney worried about what else America’s elite institutions could be missing. The one-percent doctrine was Cheney’s best solution for ensuring another devastating attack did not surprise the United States.

HAGUE COURT CAVES TO US THREATS: REJECTS AFGHAN WAR CRIMES CASE

The ICC judge claimed a lack of evidence and a poor outlook for state cooperation — the latter reason essentially meaning the US and UK have already condemned the prospect of opening such an investigation.

The ICC had previously vowed to continue to operate "undeterred" by any US threat of punitive action against the ICC when it first considered examining allegations that US personnel committed war crimes, including instances of unlawful detention and torture of Afghans, as well as killing of civilians. The window of time ICC prosecutors considered for their investigation ran from May 2003, within the opening years of the US occupation, to 2017.

“The chamber hereby decides that an investigation into the situation in Afghanistan at this stage would not serve the interests of justice and accordingly rejects the request,” the judges said in their decision, as cited by Reuters. But the obvious first question is: whose interests are being served here?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US, it's military, the Pentagon, State Department, and Surveillance Department must know, that some of the worst excuses for torture were used here, coupled with the actual torture.

It appears that they are "circling the wagons" to attempt to salvage what is left of their "credibility", by not allowing these issues be investigated by the ICC; well, ladies and gentlemen in the Bowels of Power in DC, have I got a news flash for you; you lost it the minute the US government had attacked and began to occupy Afghanistan!

You, and your sycophantic warmongering media, have utterly lost the fight for being able to get anything right, including massive incidents of allege "friendly fire" at social gatherings, must have REALLY impressed your Afghani counterparts, who dare say nothing at the maltreatment of its prisoners of war.

And I have something I thought appropriate at this juncture: You have not converted a man because you have silenced him. – John Morley, 1st Viscount Morley of Blackburn

There are many who understand what is going on with these wars, but refuse to say anything them, because they understand the price which will most likely
have to be paid, and dearly.

And that is what has to stop; but that will only happen with a peaceful, logical, and fact-centric dialogue which we can, and should, share with each other.

HOW YOU CAN BE CERTAIN THAT THE US CHARGE AGAINST ASSANGE IS FRAUDULENT

This charge is premised on a fraudulent and manipulative distortion of reality, and you may be one hundred percent certain of it. Let me explain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly will be utterly astonished if Assange actually does make it to a US court to testify; there are way too many people who would love to see him dead.

And how you may know that this is about to happen, is that there will be rumors floating around about "how depressed he is", and "doesn't want to see anyone, even his legal team".

Of course, his death will be "pitched to the public" as a suicide, just as was that of Gary Webb; and the atrocious thing about all of this, that the US government just expects this to be believed whole, as though there was no critical thinking possible from its people.

Just look at the drizzle of bovine excrement the American people, and the world, at the following; I mean, how completely stupid did the the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office believe the American people are?!? Just look at the following:

Facing a barrage of calls from the media and the public, the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office issued a statement Tuesday confirming that former investigative reporter Gary Webb committed suicide with two gunshots to the head.

“The cause of death was determined to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the head,” the coroner’s statement said.

“Information and evidence gathered at the scene of death, including a handwritten note indicating an intention on the part of the decedent to take his own life, resulted in ‘suicide’ as the determined manner of death.

“The investigation is continuing and will take an estimated additional six to eight weeks to complete.”

Would some of our medical professionals who read and enjoy WRH, please explain to me how, after firing one bullet into the brain, how the person both has the reflexes and mental acuity, after the first shot, to fire a second?!? And in the back of the head, no less?!? And with the handgun presented as the "suicide weapon"?

I can bet that you won't even get Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, formerly staring in the series Mythbusters, to want to touch this with a 30 foot poll; the twisted logic presented here, which has utterly no grounding in reality, is complete, and utter, bovine excrement, and thinking people understand this.

But remember; this is how completely stupid the US government believe you to be; and if Assange winds up becoming the victim of some "wetwork" pitched as "suicide" you will know that the Deep State has been successful in silencing another voice for truth.

“I’m not going to quote the NY Post’s horrifying, hateful cover,” AOC wrote. “Here’s 1 fact: @IlhanMN is a cosponsor of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. She‘s done more for 9/11 families than the GOP who won’t even support healthcare for 1st responders – yet are happy to weaponize her faith.”

Why Trump Is A Rothschild Tool

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

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

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

Apr 12 07:11

How Rothschild Inc. Saved Donald Trump

On October 30, 1978, The Spotlight newspaper reported that the principle investors of Resorts International were Meyer Lansky, Tibor Rosenbaum, William Mellon Hitchcock, David Rockefeller, and one Baron Edmond de Rothschild.

Michael Collins Piper, in his book The New Jerusalem: Zionist Power in America has done an excellent job of describing the relationship between Donald Trump and Resorts International. The following excerpt sums up the relationship:

“In 1987, upon the death of longtime CIA front man James Crosby, the nominal head of Resorts International, up-and-coming young New York real estate tycoon Donald Trump stepped into the picture and bought Crosby’s interest in the gambling empire.”

FINANCIAL TYRANNY: AMERICA HAS BECOME A PAY-TO-PLAY EXERCISE IN FASCISM

SOURCE: JOHN WHITEHEAD VIA THE RUTHERFORD INSTITUTE
If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman…
And you’re working for no one but me.
— George Harrison, “Taxman

“We the people” have become the new, permanent underclass in America.

We get taxed on how much we earn, taxed on what we eat, taxed on what we buy, taxed on where we go, taxed on what we drive, and taxed on how much is left of our assets when we die, and yet we have no real say in how the government runs, or how our taxpayer funds are used.

Case in point: Lawmakers across the country have been acting as fronts for corporations, sponsoring more than 10,000 model laws written by corporations, industry groups and think tanks such as the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This transition into Fascism,has become almost painfully complete beyond bearing; what used to be The United States of America, once thought to be "the land of the free and the home of the brave", has rapidly devolved into "The land... of the cowed And the home... of the surveilled."

And I am gently asking, no, begging our readers and listeners to start to preparing themselves, for what looks like a very rocky patch ahead, both for We the People; this country; and our world.

Folks, I don't want to be crowned "Mrs. Chicken Little" of Oahu; and I am absolutely no psychic.

But looking at the world situation, for me, there is one, central, and unvarnished truth; that the more you prepare for a massively bad situation, no matter what that might be, and when, this be cannot possibly be worse than having done no prep whatsoever.

I am seeing a number of hot spots around the world which are on a razor's edge from triggering massive regional conflicts that could quickly become world wars, if allowed to spin out of control.

But the question I have to ask now, is, which conflict zones will be allowed/ abetted in their metastatic melt-down, courtesy of US foreign policy, to become full-on wars, and perhaps,and perpetual, in their duration??

This is something I hope every American citizen (including President Trump; Mike Pompeo, and John Bolton) is thinking about.

The ratcheting up of world tensions by the fractious, hubristic, bellicose, and catastrophically unreasonable demands placed against countries the US government doesn't particularly like, is not doing anything to begin to create the calm, reasonable environment, in which good faith negotiations can grow, and thrive.

Unfortunately, I see the current ratcheting up of international tensions by the US government as a very intense indication that the US government will be going to war against (take your pick:) Syria; Iran; Venezuela; China; and a re-invasion of Iraq, as they are very unhappy with the US troop presence in Iraq.

And even more stunningly important,these countries which the US government is shunning, both economically,and militarily, immediately understood that what they had to do, to get around the US's tariffs.

And that was to create a coalition, where agreements could be made, to buy merchandise and services from each other, but using several software packages which will,most probably, will wind up consolidated.

So what has been brilliantly achieved here, is the introduction of a software platform which is capable of bypassing SWIFT, and allowing merchants, globally, to use their own software packages instead.

Same People Behind Iraq War Lies Pushed Russian Collusion

For more than two years they misled us.

Exploiting fear and confusion after a shocking event, they warned that our country was in imminent danger at the hands of a mad man. They insisted that legitimate intelligence, including a CIA report issued a month before a national election and a dossier produced by reliable sources in the United Kingdom, proved the threat was real. The subject monopolized discussions on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and in the press.

They argued that the situation was so dire that it was straining our relationship with strategic allies. Any evidence to the contrary was readily dismissed. And anyone who questioned their agenda was ridiculed as a coward, a dupe, or a conspiracy theorist. The news media dedicated endless air time and column inches to anyone who wanted to repeat the falsehood.

‘I know nothing about Wikileaks. It’s not my thing,’ says Trump following Assange’s arrest

US President Donald Trump, who said he loved WikiLeaks during his election campaign, tried to distance himself from the arrest of Julian Assange, which was carried out by Britain on the request of the US.

Speaking to journalists in the Oval Office on Thursday, hours after the arrest of Assange in London, Trump said:

"I know nothing about WikiLeaks. It’s not my thing."

Trump was far less reluctant to speak about the transparency site in 2016, when it played a major role in the US presidential election after it published a number of documents leaked from the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Then-candidate Trump called the work of the site “amazing” and said he “loved” what it was being doing.

Making Sense of Our Russiagate Failure

The most consequential function of journalists is not reporting facts, but establishing a narrative framework for making sense of those facts. In the wake of the Mueller investigation’s whimper-like conclusion, it is apparent that the roots of the Trump-Russia failure—and there is no question that the vast majority of media coverage merited some sort of reverse Pulitzer prize—lay in a collective refusal to subject the story’s broad narrative to critical scrutiny.

For many, that narrative was powerfully attractive. It argued that the triumph of an ill-mannered, self-worshipping, know-nothing reality show star in the 2016 election was not the product of our political establishment’s alienation of key middle American constituencies or the weakness of Hillary Clinton’s campaign strategy. Rather, it was the result of Russia’s malign influence, which co-opted and conspired with Donald Trump to subvert American democracy and the broader international order.

Name ONE TIME A Government Program Accomplished Its Goal

By Joe Jarvis

Illinois has the worst credit rating of any state. It has $8 billion in outstanding bills and a $3.2 billion deficit in just next year’s budget.

But the worst part is the $250 billion they need to pay their state pensions…

When you or I have debt, the first thing we have to do is tighten the belt. We save money and cut expenses. But imagine if instead you could just waltz up to your boss and demand a raise. And not because you’re doing more work, or because you hit a home-run with last quarter’s goals… just because you got yourself into debt.

If Illinois was an employee, they would have been fired by now. They haven’t hit any of their goals and continuously fail to deliver on the promises they have made...
