TOP 10 MOST CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER SITES REVEALED IN FIRST MAJOR COAL ASH POLLUTION STUDY

An examination of monitoring data available for the first time concludes that 91 percent of U.S. coal-fired power plants with monitoring data are contaminating groundwater with unsafe levels of toxic pollutants.
The study by the Environmental Integrity Project, with assistance from Earthjustice, used industry data that became available to the public for the first time in 2018 because of requirements in federal coal ash regulations issued in 2015.

The report found that found that the groundwater near 242 of the 265 power plants with monitoring data contained unsafe levels of one or more of the pollutants in coal ash, including arsenic, a known carcinogen, and lithium, which is associated with neurological damage, among other pollutants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Kind of puts a shaft right through the heart of the "clean coal" argument, doesn't it?!?

CHINA ACCUSES ARRESTED CANADIANS OF STEALING STATE SECRETS

SOURCE: ALJAZEERA.COM
China has accused two Canadians currenctly held there of acting together to steal state secrets and intelligence, according to state media.

Former diplomat Michael Kovrig and entrepreneur Michael Spavor were arrested in China in early December soon after the detention in Canada of Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei, who is currently facing extradition to the United States.

On Monday, China's official Xinhua news agency cited unidentified Chinese authorities as saying Kovrig violated Chinese laws by acting as a spy and stealing state secrets and intelligence with the help of Spavor. It was the first time the two men's cases have been linked.

It said Kovrig often entered China using an ordinary passport and business visas and acquired information from Spavor, his "main contact".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Chinese "arm-twisting" on Canada, regarding the fate, extradition, and trial of Meng Wanzhou in the US.

It will be interesting to see how Canadian officials deal with this.

SNITCH SWITCH: SMART ASSISTANTS WITH “MORAL AI” COULD CALL POLICE ON OWNERS WHO BREAK LAW

SOURCE: THE NEW AMERICAN
Reprinted with permission from TheNewAmerican.com.

Call it Terminator meets the second-grade tattletale, but some “experts” have suggested that electronic home assistants could be programmed with moral artificial intelligence (AI) that could decide whether to report its owners to the authorities for breaking the law.

As the Daily Mail reports:

Academics at the University of Bergen, Norway, touted the idea at the ACM conference on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and Society in Hawaii.

Marija Slavkovik, associate professor the department of information science and media studies, led the research.

Leon van der Torre and Beishui Liao, professors at the University of Luxembourg and Zhejiang University respectively, also took part.

Dr Slavkovik suggested that digital assistants should possess an ethical awareness that simultaneously represents both the owner and the authorities — or, in the case of a minor, their parents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why, in our home, other than our cell phones, there will never be a digital AI, folks.

SINGLE MOTHER OF THREE ARRESTED, THROWN IN JAIL—OVER UNPAID MEDICAL BILL

La Porte, IN — A traffic stop for a missing sticker on her car led to a single Indiana mom’s arrest last month—after police discovered this mom was a “criminal” because she was unable to pay her medical bills.

Melissa Welch-Latronica didn’t know why police stopped her last month as she was not breaking any laws. The officer told her that she failed to put the 2019 sticker on her license plate, so he needed to see her driver’s license and registration.

As she waited for her citation over a license plate sticker—which was in her car—another cop pulled up.

“I have no felonies or anything on my record,” she recalled. “I didn’t know what was going on.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many many years ago,, I worked in the collection department of a large auto-leasing firm in West LA.

My boss was one of the most smart, kind, gentle, and honorable people for whom I had ever had the privilege of working, by the name of Mel Leeds.

What Mel would do, if there was an outstanding debt by a lessee, (particularly if the car had been repossessed) was to move heaven and earth to find a way to have the lessee create a "promissory note", to get the lessee to pay something every month, to get the bill payed down, and avoid a court date, and he was amazingly successful in how he did this.

Missing the court date was a major problem here, but having had this work experience with Mel, I think that corporations can, and should, have a heart, when someone is overwhelmed with medical problems, and desperately need to get help.

PUTIN FORMALLY SUSPENDS RUSSIAN PARTICIPATION IN INF TREATY, NOTIFIES WASHINGTON

Russia has formally pulled out of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) after previously signalling that it would take this historic step after the White House announced last month that the US would suspend all obligations under the treaty. President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Monday formally enacting and finalizing Russia’s suspension of the INF Treaty, which was set to expire in less than six months and subject of heightened tensions after both sides have repeatedly accused the other of having been in violation of its terms for years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has behaved like an absolute, consummate, banana-ingesting orangutangue on this issue, thumping his chest in jubilation at having become the "Wreck-it Ralph" of the 21st century on weapons treaties.

This, in turn, has has placed Putin in the unfortunate position of having to take an offensive posture on this issue he absolutely did not want to take.

But we need to understand that this offensive posture has been totally created by the US withdrawing from this treaty.

The degree to which this President has been consumed by the Neocons and the Israeli lobby, and how quickly in his presidency it happened, has been total and complete.

Russia has absolutely every right to be concerned here, and has expressed its concerns very clearly:

Putin's warning on missiles in Europe pushes U.S. and Russia closer to new arms race

NATO chief says allies keen to avoid arms race with Russia

Putin says he is ready for a New Cuban Missile Crisis, if Donald Trump wants one.

One has to wonder just how soon the Russian/European border will become infested with weapons, the use of which which could make the future of life on planet earth .... impossible.

MILITARY INTERVENTION AND MERCENARIES, INC. (MIAMI)

Authored by Wayne Madsen via The Strategic Culture Foundation.

The city of Miami, Florida may have started out as a retirement mecca for winter-worn pensioners from northern climes. However, after the beginning of the Cold War and US military and Central Intelligence Agency intervention in Guatemala, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Chile, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Guyana, the Bahamas, and other Western Hemisphere nations, Miami became a refuge for exiled wealthy businessmen escaping populist revolutions and elections in South and Central America and spies. The retirement and vacation capital of the United States quickly became the “Tropical Casablanca.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anything which cannot be achieved and won legitimately by the Unhinged, Surveilled state of Amerika is now won illegitimately, and sheeple simply don't seem to be able to tell the difference, which just scares the living daylights our of me.

This country has become the Evil Empire Americana, very much like the Star Wars saga, where Princess Amidala (now Senator Amidala) makes the following observation: "So this... is how liberty dies; to thunderous applause!" - (Star Wars, Revenge of the Sith).

MADURO SO FAR DEFIES ODDS IN U.S. REGIME CHANGE EFFORT | OILPRICE.COM

Venezuela is scrambling to find buyers for its oil, hoping to keep revenue streams alive even as Maduro loses control of Citgo.

The U.S.-based subsidiary of PDVSA officially severed ties with its parent company in order to comply with U.S. sanctions, according to Reuters. The American government is trying to shift control of Citgo into the hands of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó. Citgo has stopped sending payments to PDVSA, and Gauidó has appointed a new board to the company. Some Venezuelan employees working at Citgo in the U.S. returned back to Caracas.

Citgo is one of the major prizes that the U.S. has tried to wrestle away from Maduro as part of the American regime change campaign in Venezuela. Citgo is the eight largest refiner in the U.S. at 750,000 bpd, and it owns pipelines and retail gasoline stations. The company is a key source of revenue for the Venezuelan government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The operative words in the title of this articles are "so far".

Abrams (and the warhawks) are in this for the long game, and complete control over Venezuela's oil.

Yesterday, Guido announced that he would be coming back to Venezuela in the near future, and encouraged supporters to demonstrate, to create a lot of "noise" against Maduros, so that his homecoming could be drowned out by it.

I am very sure that he has a very specific set of "instructions" from one, or more, of the US's "Alphabet Soup" agencies as to how and when to accomplish this goal.

California Democrat spills the beans, says “gun confiscation” is the ultimate goal to “prevent all gun violence” … but who will carry it out?

Shall not infringe. Shall not infringe. Shall not infringe. How many times do the gun-grabbing Democrats in Congress need to hear these three simple words before they get it through their thick skulls that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, which protects and guarantees Americans’ God-given right to bear arms, is non-negotiable? -- Apparently a few more times, as House Democrats are busy scheming up legislation that would make it much more difficult for the people of this country to rightfully buy, sell, and possess firearms. And their ultimate end game, as openly admitted by California Democrat Mike Thompson during a recent press conference, is to eventually confiscate everybody’s guns.

CBS News Wants Guns for Them.. But Not for You ~ VIDEO

I missed these details at first. A TV news crew was the victim of a recent robbery attempt. This was a video crew from the local CBS affiliate in San Francisco. The crew was protected by an armed guard. This is interesting because CBS condemned ordinary citizens for being armed. The network said it is unwise for you or me to have a gun for self-defense of our family while CBS protected their camera equipment with armed guards. I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning. -- I can’t trust a news organization that has one set of rules for them and another set of rules for us.

CNN Analyst And Former Obama Admin Official Compares Trump's CPAC Speech To Hitler

One CNN analyst and former Obama administration official was clearly triggered by President Trump's rambling, expletive-filled, two-hour-plus CPAC address.

During an appearance on CNN where she offered some "informed commentary" on Trump's speech, Sam Vinograd, a former member of Obama’s national security council, said Trump's "xenophobic" talking points about immigrants and white heritage reminded her of "certain leader" who presided over a genocidal European regime during the first half of the 20th century.

'I know hoes when I see them': Roseanne Barr goes off the rails and attacks #MeToo movement founder and accusers, claiming they 'pretend that they didn't trade sexual favors for money'

Roseanne Barr (left) has launched a verbal attack on the #MeToo movement. Barr, who was fired from ABC's Roseanne for a racist tweet in May 2018, sat down with far-right commentator, Candace Owens, for an interview published on Sunday. 'They were there in the room because they thought they were going to get a job 15 years ago. Cuz they're hos,' Barr told Owens as they discussed their views on the #MeToo movement. Barr said some of the women who were in men's hotel rooms at 3am are 'pretending that they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money'. She continued mocking the victims of the movement by saying they stayed around in the hotel rooms because they thought they were going to get a job. 'Well you ain't nothing but a ho. I know a ho when I see one,' Barr added. The #MeToo movement was founded in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke, who started using the phrase to raise awareness of sexual abuse and assault.

Amazon Joins Big Tech Assault On Anti-Vaccine Information

As major media and big tech continue freaking out over 159 measles cases in the U.S., anti-vaccine campaigners are increasingly being likened to terrorists as their ability to share information and earn money is being cut off.

The origin of this latest move against the free flow of information seems to have stemmed from a letter sent by Adam Schiff (D-CA) to the heads of Facebook and Google wherein he lamented the increased viewership of the vaccine debate:

“There is strong evidence to suggest that at least part of the source of this trend is the degree to which medically inaccurate information about vaccines surface on the websites where many Americans get their information,” Schiff wrote in the letter. “The algorithms which power these services are not designed to distinguish quality information from misinformation or misleading information, and the consequences of that are particularly troubling for public health issues.” (Source: Bloomberg)

OVER 600 TONS OF LEAKED OIL EXPECTED TO RUIN HERITAGE-LISTED SOLOMON ISLANDS REEF

A terrifying environmental calamity has engulfed the Solomon Islands after a bulk carrier ran aground in last month’s cyclone Oma, threatening the future of a sensitive UNESCO World Heritage site.

The government of the small island nation has demanded urgent assistance in controlling the spill, which has already leaked over 80 tons of oil into the sea and surrounding shoreline and continues to gush into the nearby coral reef, causing a devastating impact on the environmentally sensitive region.

On February 5, the Hong Kong-flagged Solomon Trader, built in 1994, was loading bauxite from a mine on Rennell Island before the cyclone sank the ship onto a coral reef.

Over 660 tons of oil remain on board the leaking vessel along with the ship’s full load of bauxite, the key ore used to make aluminum. The ship was chartered with Indonesian company Bintan Mining Solomon Islands Limited, but its ownership remains unclear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cyclones are horrible things.

But that being said, why did the captain of the ship not check local weather reports, indicating this was coming?!? And what pushed him to continue the journey, with a ship that was 25 years old, and heaven only knows what its condition was, before the journey began.

This looks to me like a reckless run for profits, even facing the catastrophe that both the owner of the ship, and its captain, almost absolutely, had to know.

Right now, the captain, the chartering company, and the owner need to be arrested, and perp walked to the scene of the damage, tried, and convicted by a jury of their peers, and sentenced to hard jail time, and that the chartering and owners of this ship be liable for any and all damages to the Solomon islands, and must pay restitution.

Here are some images of the damage the spill has caused:

  CHINA’S SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM BARRED MILLIONS FROM TRAVELING IN 2018

Your bags are packed, your rooms are booked, you’re all set for your vacation; there’s just one problem, the government has canceled your tickets.

As early as 2014, China began conceptualizing a Social Credit System (SCS), sort of like a credit score for citizen behavior where behaviors deemed good for society are rewarded with privileges and bad behaviors result in a poor score and loss of privileges. China has since been working to test its new method of population control and has been slowly conscripting citizens into the system. Now, a new report acquired by the Associated Press, suggests millions of would-be travelers had their plans canceled as a result of the SCS in 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please don't think that your alleged Congressional representatives are not LUSTING IN THEIR HEARTS to reimagine such a system for the US, the Constitution be damned.

WALMART REPLACING OVERNIGHT SHIFTS WITH "LABOR-SAVING MACHINES"; ELIMINATES STORE GREETERS

As part of the company's streamlining process, Walmart is eliminating the overnight shift that restocks the aisles at about 300 stores, and while it will aim to transition those employees to other hours, it will most likely end up firing most of them especially since the impacted stores are primarily smaller ones with lower annual sales or customer traffic.

At the same time, Walmart is accelerating its robotic rollout and is the expanding the use of a backroom conveyor system that takes boxes of products from trucks and scans them to speed their delivery to the shelves. The so-called “FAST Unloader” machine will be in 1,700 stores by the end of the year, up from 400 now, leading to even more mass layoffs of highly unskilled workers.

The moves show how Walmart, despite strong sales, is grappling to keep a lid on operating expenses -- especially as labor and transportation costs and e-commerce investments weigh on margins.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah," Walmart Compassion"!! What a flipping joke!! And Greg Foran, company President, I would like to politely suggest that you are not fooling anyone with this codswallop.

In fact, I would almost be willing to bet that when the furor winds down, these greeters will be fired at 61 days, rather than at 60.

Given the ageism in American society (i.e., if potential employees are not young, cute, and handsome/beautiful, and will work for a pittance, they are worthless), one has to wonder just what jobs these folks will be able to find, and in a rapidly shrinking economy, to boot.

PROSECUTOR DECLARES FREED TEXAS DEATH ROW INMATE ALFRED DEWAYNE BROWN INNOCENT, PAVING WAY FOR STATE COMPENSATION

Alfred Dewayne Brown spent nearly a decade on Texas’ death row before his conviction was thrown out by the courts. But despite being freed in 2015, he didn’t qualify for the state payout given to those wrongfully convicted because he was never declared “actually innocent.”

On Friday, that changed. Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg held a press conference announcing that an outside attorney she had assigned to investigate the case had found Brown innocent, paving the way for Brown to receive $80,000 for each year he was wrongfully in prison plus smaller monthly payments over the course of his life. She filed an amended motion in the trial court. That motion is expected to be approved and clear Brown's last hurdle to get compensation.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Saudi Arabia strips Osama bin Laden's son Hamza of his citizenship after US offers a $1million reward for his capture amid fears of new al-Qaeda terror plot against the West

Saudi Arabia has stripped Osama bin Laden's son Hamza of his citizenship, one day after the United States offered a $1 million reward for information that could lead to his capture.

The son of the late al-Qaeda leader, who was killed in a U.S. military raid in Pakistan in 2011, has reportedly become an increasingly prominent figure in the terror network.

Saudi Arabia's interior ministry announced that they had revoked his citizenship via a royal decree in November, however it is not known why it was only made public today.

Hamza, who is thought to be about 30 years old has released audio and video messages calling for 'lone wolf' attacks against the U.S. and its allies.

The large bounty, part of the U.S. State Department's 'rewards for justice' programme, is due to renewed fear that another al-Qaeda terror attack on the west is imminent.

FAMILY RAIDED BY COPS, THEIR CHILDREN KIDNAPPED—FOR NOT BRINGING SON TO ER FOR A FEVER

The nightmare for this family started 4 days ago when they brought their toddler to the doctor at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine because he had a fever. The fever had gotten pretty high, 105, so the doctor told the family to take the baby to the ER.

When the family got back to the car, however, they took Heber’s temperature once more and noticed that it had dropped significantly. His temp fell to 102, which is no reason to head to the ER.

“He’s acting normal. He’s dancing with his sisters in his car seat. And I take his temperature and it’s 102,” said Beck.

For those who may be unaware, it is not necessary to bring your toddler to the ER for a fever. According to Johns Hopkins medicine, if a toddler has no other symptoms with fevers under 104, you just need to make them comfortable. What’s more, they only recommend seeking medical attention after repeated fevers of 104 or higher—which is what this family did.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Parents with small children, please move from Arizona, and vote with your feet, making sure that the current Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, understands why you are leaving.

Intelligent parents, who love their children, should not be put at the mercy of the industrial/medical complex, which can immediately decide to call for police to invade your home, and take your children from you.

How a Small Team of Journalists Overcame Neocon-Cheered Facebook Censorship

Facebook seemed to have outdone itself again in its ongoing suppression of independent media when, earlier this month in coordination with CNN, it banned four pages belonging to a company that was not even accused of breaking any of the platform’s rules.

The genesis of In The Now’s ban is striking as it has never concealed its funding and it had been reported on years ago. Nonetheless, a U.S. government-funded neoconservative think tank saw a problem with In The Now and partnered with CNN to expose it. CNN identified the owners of In The Now to Facebook and used yet another neoconservative think tank, which has been partnering closely with Facebook for the past few years, to scaremonger in its article about Russian meddling in American politics.

Now, Facebook is reversing its decision following outcry from the public.

RussiaGate as Organized Distraction

For over two years RussiaGate discourse has accounted for a substantial proportion of all mainstream US media political journalism and, because US media have significant agenda-setting propulsion, of global media coverage. The timing has been catastrophic. The Trump Administration has shredded environmental protections, jettisoned nuclear agreements, exacerbated tensions with US rivals, and pandered to the rich. In place of sustained media concentration on the end of the human species from global warming, its even more imminent demise in nuclear warfare, or the further evisceration of democratic discourse in a society driven by historically unprecedented wealth inequalities and unbridled capitalistic greed, corporate media suffocate their publics with a puerile narrative of supposed collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.

PARKLAND REVISITED: Known Wolves, Astroturfing and the Politics of Mass Shootings

This month marked the first anniversary of the Parkland shooting, but one key point the public should bear in mind is that the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooter Nikolas Cruz – was already well-known to both local law enforcement and the FBI long before the tragic events of that day. Shortly after the Parkland school shooting, any in-depth crime scene discussion was quickly brushed aside, as a national political campaign for gun control deployed by the media, the Democratic Party and its affiliate activist organizations – dominated the headlines. By choosing to play-up certain polarizing aspects of the incident, rather than focus on the questionable details of the case, the mainstream media initially glossed over holding both local law enforcement and the FBI to account for their failure to both prevent and react to this incident in a timely and effective manner.

Joly’s home burned down in 2017 and the FBI investigated it as a hate crime because Joly was a transgender man and gay rights activist in a conservative town and reportedly received threats over ‘his’ activism.

It turns out Nikki Joly was frustrated that the ‘Jackson Pride Parade’ and festival held just days before the home was set ablaze, hadn’t received more attention or protests.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is real.

Venezuela Orders PDVSA Offices Relocate To Moscow; Putin Affirms Support To "Friend" Maduro

A top Venezuelan official has announced that President Nicolas Maduro has ordered national oil and gas company PDVSA to close its current European headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal and move it to Moscow. The announcement came from Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez during a press conference standing alongside Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Moscow on Friday.

"President Nicolas Maduro instructed the Lisbon branch of PDVSA to close this office and relocate the office to Moscow," Rodriguez said, according to Russia's TASS news agency. It appears the relocation is already underway, and is part of the framework of "broadening cooperation" with Russian energy giants Rosneft and Gazprom, according to the statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would imagine that Putin thought that this might be a reasonable idea, and has put it into place, must probably just in time for the Venezuelan government

Trump to expel dozens of Maduro loyalists from the US

The Trump administration is expelling dozens of officials loyal to Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro from the United States, a top administration official announced Friday.

“Maduro supporters that abuse or violate human rights, steal from the Venezuelan people or undermine Venezuela’s democracy are not welcome in the United States,” Special Envoy Elliott Abrams told reporters at the State Department. “Neither are their family members, who enjoy a privileged lifestyle at the expense of liberty and prosperity of millions of Venezuelans.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The optics on this appear churlish and infantile, all at the same time.

First of all, if these people who supported Maduro, going home, if they can make it, most probably means a hail of bullets for them and their families, by either US soldiers, special ops, or mercs.

And then, you have the following companion piece, also from freerepublic.com:

Trump Sanctions Top Maduros Military./ This article goes on to state:

"“We are sanctioning members of Maduro’s security forces in response to the reprehensible violence, tragic deaths, and unconscionable torching of food and medicine destined for sick and starving Venezuelans,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

The move came the same day Trump's State Department announced it was expelling dozens of Maduro loyalists from the United States.

The new Treasury blacklist includes a major general with the Venezuelan National Guard, three senior officials responsible for Venezuela’s internal defense, and a colonel in the state national police force. The United States also sanctioned a commander of the FAES, a special police squad “known for their violent role in suppressing dissent from Maduro’s political opponents,” according to the Treasury Department bulletin."

I frankly think that these two measures, taken so quickly, are the prelude to an attempt at military intervention very soon.

Pence Threatens War in Venezuela at Colombia Summit: “There Is No Turning Back”

Simultaneous with this weekend’s planned confrontation, the US military escalated its war plans. CNN reported that

“the US military has flown an increased number of reconnaissance flights in international airspace off the coast of Venezuela during the last several days to gather classified intelligence” in possible preparation for a military intervention.

On Saturday, Puerto Rican Governor Ricardo Rosselló reported that the Venezuelan military threatened to “open fire” on an American ship that entered Venezuelan territorial waters without permission. Though the ship was registered in Vanuatu, it was flying under a US flag in violation of international maritime law. US officials claim the ship was carrying 200 tons of “humanitarian aid.”

Venezuelan officials allege that US “humanitarian aid” includes weapons shipments to Colombia. Last Wednesday, Colombian armed forces leader Maj. Gen. Luis Navarro Jiménez traveled to Florida, where he met with leaders of US Southern Command.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, it is on; needing to distance himself from the problems of the Kim Jun Un summit in Hanoi, and the horrific accusations Cohen made against Trump in his testimony to Congress, President Trump may well feel compelled to redirect focus on Venezuela, and very quickly.

I truly think that this will be his next ploy, and we need to be conscious and aware this weekend, because my sense is, that this will be the time when he will want to move forward.

Yemen Nails US' Venezuela Lies

Juan Guaido, the 35-year-old US-educated opposition figure whom most Venezuelans had never heard of until recently, is breathlessly described in Western media reports as the "internationally recognized president".

That's a lie for a start. Guaido is recognized by the US and some other states, but the vast majority of nations continue to recognize the government of President Maduro as the legitimate authority. Maduro was inaugurated on January 10 for the second time as elected president. That's when Washington began to crank up its regime-change campaign in this country, which happens to possess the world's biggest-known oil reserves.

In an audacious subterfuge, Guaido proclaimed himself "acting president" of Venezuela on January 23. It was a move fully orchestrated by the Trump White House as a step towards regime change.

Who are the “Brutal Dictators”?

Elected Presidents Assad and Maduro are not the brutal dictators. We are.

We are the ones imposing economic warfare, and regime change wars on non-belligerent countries. We are the ones supporting terrorists who impose the death penalty on hundreds of thousands with our weapons, our command and control, our mercenaries, our air support and our terror bombings.

We are dictating our will by destroying these and other countries, by changing “regimes”, by setting up non-democracies throughout the world.[1]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really irks me, from Iraq to Afghanistan to Yemen, is the US government's willingness to be involved with war crimes, in order to get what they want accomplished, no matter the bloodshed, no matter the pain.

I remember, as a kid, swallowing whole the notion of how the US was always "the good guy" in international politics; but growing up, with the hideousness of the Vietnam War, and other endless military interventions after that, in Chile; Central America; Afghanistan; Iraq; Yemen; and Somalia, how in the name of all that is decent, can one talk about the US government as "the good guy internationally, with a straight face?!?

I sure as heck can't.

The pattern is painfully obvious; regime change; pacify the citizens of the regime changed government (most generally at the point of a gun or knife); have US-centric countries expropriating the resources of the conquered country; and only selling those resources in US dollars.

Wring, wash, repeat.....

But I predict that there will ultimately a point.... where the US will find itself in a position where they can no longer mow across whole continents with its military machines with which to do this.

Unfortunately, the only two ways of stopping this are... a complete economic collapse of this country, or a world war in which the US government loses its shirt. And by the way, I hope that neither of these two outcomes come to pass; but unless the US government changes its behaviour, those in the Bowels of Power in DC, had better get their bunkers in order; this could be one terrible mess!!

Venezuela’s Foreign Minister Arreaza Holds UN Marathon for Peace: Usurper Guaido Urges Military Intervention and War

NATO steps up naval presence on the Black Sea

The background to this is an incident in the Kerch Strait at the end of November. Russian ships off the coast of the Crimean peninsula — which was annexed from Ukraine by Russia in 2014 — seized two Ukrainian Navy boats and a tug by force of arms. Deborah Sanders of King's College London told DW that Europe reacted "quite slowly" to the incident in the Kerch Strait via diplomatic channels, so a "more military" approach was chosen, meaning an increased naval presence. Sanders, an expert on defense and security in the region, said the US had taken on an informal leadership role, the aim being to send a clear signal to Moscow that the Black Sea is not Russian waters. She pointed out that the balance of power in the Black Sea has shifted in Russia's favor, and that Kyiv is worried about a blockade of Odessa, the country's most important port. Since the annexation of Crimea, the Ukrainian navy has been stationed in Odessa.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

DW, you just lost your credibility - and my respect - with this bit of codswallop.

Are your English language editors so brazenly stupid that they would deliberately blink and miss on one of the most important stories of 2015?!?

You used the word "annexed" twice, indicating that this is how the Russian/Crimean relationship was formed; and that, as you know, is a complete, and utter lie.

President Obama admitted in a 2015 interview, that the US had brokered the deal to get Yanukovich, the duly elected Ukraine President, run over by the proverbial bus, leaving the door open in Kiev for Poroshenko to enter.

Washington Was Behind Ukraine Coup: Obama admits that US “Brokered a Deal” in Support of “Regime Change”

Sorry, DW, this is one doozy of a lie about how Crimea became a member of the Russian Federation, that I CANNOT UN-SEE!!

You owe you readers one hell of an apology for this, DW.

Conservatism Inc. Finally Admits Patriots Are Being Deplatformed, Attacked. So What Is It Going to DO?

Field representative Hayden Williams of the Leadership Institute was recently tabling at the University of California-Berkeley when he was attacked by an unhinged campus leftist. [Conservative activist punched in face at Berkeley says incident part of ‘disturbing’ trend, by Stephen Loiaconi, ABC 12, February 26, 2019]

The video has since gone viral and is being heavily promoted by the Leadership Institute and by Turning Point USA, the organization Williams was specifically recruiting for. Despite some reports that a suspect has been “identified,” there have been no confirmed reports from the police. This is literally incredible, considering that the incident was captured on video and the suspect was not wearing a mask.

UN Council: Israel Intentionally Shot Children and Journalists in Gaza

Officials say killings are part of Israel's 'obligation'

Israel is furious at the UN Human Rights Council most of the time, but they are particularly furious whenever the body offers a report, as Israel tends to violate a lot of human rights. In this case, the council has announced an “independent inquiry” into the protests at the Gaza border.

Every Friday, for months now, Palestinian protesters have rallied near the Gaza border to protest the Israeli blockade. Every Friday, Israel shoots a large number of people. The investigation ruled that there are “reasonable grounds” to believe Israel violated international law.

The report noted that 154 out of 183 people killed by Israel in that time were entirely unarmed. They noted Israel had repeatedly, deliberately shot children and journalists, as well as disabled protesters. International law, needless to say, frowns upon those sorts of deliberate killings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What in the name of heaven motivates heavily armed IDF members to assassinate Palestinian kids?!?

Where is doing this protecting the citizens of Israel?!?

The only understanding which I can come to, is realizing that in maiming and assassinating Palestinian kids, the IDF is taking away as much of the Palestinian future away from their families as they can: it is just...that...simple.

Pakistan to Return Captured Pilot as Tensions Ease

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that he has ordered the release of the Indian pilot captured earlier this week in a shoot-down over Indian airspace. Khan described his return as a “gesture for peace.”

The shoot-downs are part of several days of escalating violence along the Line of Control, with the two large, nuclear-armed states escalating their military action, and describing themselves to remain “on high alert.”

Though this announced release has clearly eased a lot of the tensions, military on neither side seems willing to admit it. India’s military says they “welcome” the release of their pilot, but said they would not say if they think this will amount to a deescalation of the conflict itself.

Australia to reopen notorious migrant detention center after govt. fails to block medevac bill

The Australian government will be reopening the Christmas Island detention center, likened to a maximum security prison, after the opposition streamlined a bill to allow migrant detainees to seek medical help on the mainland.
Australia's conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on Tuesday that the detention facility in the Australian external territory in the Indian Ocean his government worked hard to shut down would be reopened to accommodate potential new arrivals and detainees, who might be transferred from the Nauru and Manus Island offshore migrant detention camps.

The setback in the conservative government's effort to scale down the controversial migrant detention program is a response to a new amendment to a medical evacuations bill, championed by the Labor party, which enlisted the support of the Greens and crossbench MPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wrestle with this because, morally, because I hate to see people suffering and struggling, as illegal immigrants do struggle in environments like this; that being said, as draconian as it is, this policy has kept the Australian people safe from illegal immigrants in a big way.

What the Australian Parliament should come up with, is a different, more responsible way in which they treat their illegal immigrants.

Eight Indian fighters took on 24 Pakistani jets in unprecedented dogfight — media

According to the NDTV broadcaster, the Indian Air Force’s planes prevented the Pakistani fighters from delivering precision strikes against ground targets on India-controlled disputed Kashmir region.

Eight fighter jets of the Indian Air Force took on 24 Pakistani jets in an unprecedented air combat over the India-controlled disputed Kashmir region, India’s NDTV television reported on Thursday.

According to the TV Channel, the Pakistani Air Force strike group included eight F-16s, four Mirage-3 aircraft and four Chinese-made JF-17 "Thunder" fighters. The other aircraft were escort fighters to protect the Pakistan strike formation from any retaliation.

"The large Pakistani attack formation was detected at 9.45 am, when they came within 10 km of the Line of Control," the TV Channel reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a companion piece to this I think our WRH readers should see:

New Delhi and Islamabad have long been at loggerheads over the disputed Kashmir, having fought three wars over the territory. The smoldering conflict escalated on Tuesday, when the Indian military launched an airstrike, claiming it bombed out terrorist camps on a Pakistani-controlled area of Kashmir to avenge an earlier suicide blast that had killed 42 paramilitary troopers. Islamabad then announced that it downed two Indian aircraft and captured one pilot. On Wednesday, India in turn claimed that it shot down a Pakistani fighter jet and lost one of its own aircraft while repelling an attack.

RT spoke to Rajiv Sikri, Former Secretary of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, and Yasir Masood, Pakistani political analyst, about the underlying causes of the conflict and what to expect as it unfolds.

The issue of 'terrorist camps'
The exchange of fire started with India carrying out an airstrike at a remote valley in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, claiming it killed "a very large number" of fighters with the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist group that had assumed responsibility for the suicide bombing.

Sikri called the attack "a preemptive action" based on intelligence gathered by the Indian military. He said India wasn't aiming to foment the conflict with Pakistan, since the strike did not target either military or civilian infrastructure.

READ MORE: Domestic posturing or true escalation? Analyst fears new Kashmir incident prelude to global conflict

"Countering terror is an international obligation of all states," Sikri said. He argued Islamabad is to blame for the flare-up, as it targeted Indian servicemen in response. He accused the Pakistani government of being reluctant to uproot the terrorist group and said India should be allowed to do it on its own.

One thing is clear India will reserve the right to take action against terrorist camps and activities that Pakistan is encouraging

Islamabad and New Dehli, should be working hand in glove, to prevent the existence of any terrorist camps, on either side of the Line of Control.

I think we will know if the fragile cease-fire existing at this moment is going to hold, or be breached with impunity, by the end of the weekend.

And right now, I am praying that the people of both countries, and the Kashmiris, will want a peaceful solution which has the capacity to remain long-term.

Court to unseal Christopher Steele deposition

The depositions given by former British spy Christopher Steele and a longtime associate of John McCain must be unsealed, a federal judge said Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge Ursula Ungaro overruled the objections of both Steele and David Kramer to make the depositions public. The pair gave testimony in a lawsuit brought against BuzzFeed in December 2018 by a Russian Internet entrepreneur.

The businessman, Aleksej Gubarev, was referenced in the infamous dossier compiled by Steele about President Trump’s alleged connections to Russia. Gubarev objected to BuzzFeed’s publishing of the dossier in January 2017, which accused him of using his companies to hack into computers owned by the Democratic National Committee.

DO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TAKE TOO MANY PRIVATE TRIPS TO ISRAEL WITH AIPAC?

One of every three members of Congress boarding a jetliner on a privately-funded all-expense paid trip overseas has Israel as their final destination. Only one out of a hundred ever visits Palestinian territories as a final destination.

AIPAC differs from many other groups funding private trips because of its foundational foreign ties. AIPAC lobbying began in earnest in the 1950s by a former employee of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Isaiah Kenen – who received ongoing payments from Israel to set up public relations and lobbying in the US. Kenen was paid by the Israeli government to receive congressional delegations in Israel after major aid packages were passed into law.

A typical AIEF itinerary consists of numerous briefings by Israeli government officials, trips to historical sites, and lavish restaurant visits and hotel stays. Absent from the itineraries are any briefings on Israel’s nuclear weapons triad or meaningful visits to Palestinian refugees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that every US politician who visits Israel, should be visiting Palestine also; there has to be a political solution possible, but it will not come unless our Congressional representatives see for themselves what is going on in Palestine, and speak to Palestinians.

DECADE OF ATTEMPTS BY CACI TO BLOCK ABU GHRAIB TORTURE LAWSUIT END AS JUDGE SETS TRIAL DATE

A private contractor has tried to prevent a lawsuit challenging their role in the torture of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib a total of sixteen times.
Now, the lawsuit against CACI Premier Technology, filed 13 years ago, finally has a date for a trial after a federal judge denied another motion to dismiss.

The trial is scheduled for April 23, 2019, in Alexandria, Virginia.

“More than ten years passed for us to reach this point and achieve justice,” plaintiff Salah Al-Ejaili said. “We faced a lot of obstacles along the way that we had to surpass and we stayed patient because we wanted to win our right to equality in the law.”

Al Ejaili, an Iraqi and former reporter for al Jazeera, was detained at Abu Ghraib for about six weeks. When he arrived, he was allegedly forced to strip naked and put a bag on his head as personnel shouted at him to confess.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This judge... has just become my new heroine!

We, as Americans, have to take the values we tell the world we hold dear, and constantly uphold them; violence and torture should never be tolerated, in the questioning of prisoners of war, ever, period, end of discussion, because it doesn't work (except to pry confessions from the tortured), and because it makes the world laugh at our wretched moral hypocrisy, when we do not uphold these values in all circumstances, and at all times, no matter what.

HEZBOLLAH CONDEMNS UK DECISION TO ADD IT TO TERROR LIST

Lebanon’s Hezbollah today condemned the UK’s decision to add it to its list of “terrorist groups”.

“No country in the world that embraces, finances and supports terrorism has the right to accuse the party [i.e., Hezbollah], or any resistance movement, of terrorism,” Hezbollah said in a statement.

The move, the group added, “reveals how the British government is only a follower in the service of its American master.”

Yesterday, Britain’s parliament voted to officially label Hezbollah as a “terrorist group”.

As of next Monday, membership in – or support for – the group will be considered a criminal offense in the UK, carrying sentences of up to ten years in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist activist who staunchly hates violence of ANY kind of used by any group to further its agenda, I would politely suggest this law coming into being in Great Britain, reveals to what degree the UK is held in held sway in the nearly hypnotic, mesmerizing trance... of Israel.

And Israel is a country which officially uses violence against the Palestinians as a form of control 24/7; I strongly reject that as well.

We need to come to the place in our evolution, as the collective family of humankind, where we sense the connection among all people of this earth, understanding that we are all brothers and sisters, no matter race, color, or creed, on this precious journey together, before we manage to blow this planet to kingdom come.

The Downside Of Libel Law: Cases Where People Who Were Sued For Telling The Truth Lost

The problem is that bad people who've done bad things can use the law of libel to cover their sins. They don't have to be rich and powerful, they just have to be willing to lie. This is a continuing problem in Britain and Canada which still have the law of libel.

When Kathy Shaidle was being sued in Canada, I wrote that the United States if very lucky to have its strictly limited law of libel. In New York Times vs. Sullivan the media won the right not to be sued for libel, in effect, even if they lie.

This is bad if you're a victim of libel, (like Steven Hatfill) but great if you're telling uncomfortable truths about someone. You may think that it would be nice to sue people who libel you, but in Commonwealth countries with no First Amendment and a tradition of suing for libel, people frequently sue, and win, against people who are telling the truth.

Did CNN Ambush Bernie Sanders With Political Operatives Disguised As Everyday People? 

CNN has been accused of ambushing Bernie Sanders and tricking viewers by passing off Democratic political operatives as everyday people during a Monday evening town hall as part of his campaign for the 2020 election. Internet sleuths looked into the backgrounds of those asking Sanders various questions - most of which could be considered fair game to ask a presidential candidate, only to find that there was more than meets the eye as noted by Paste Magazine.

For example, Sanders was asked a tough question about allegations of sexual harassment on his 2016 campaign by "American University Student" Shadi Nasab. What CNN didn't mention is that she's also an intern for a large D.C. lobbying firm, Cassidy & Associates.

VENEZUELAN OPPOSITION ACCUSED OF TORCHING WAREHOUSE STORING HUMANITARIAN AID FROM MEXICO

Venezuelan authorities have accused the country’s opposition of starting a fire at a warehouse in the port city of La Guaira in the state of Vargas, which was storing vital aid from Mexico that had arrived just days earlier.

The fire broke out early Wednesday morning before firefighters extinguished the blaze.

Government officials described the incident as a result of “terrorism” by opposition members. The blaze ripped through facilities belonging to the Local Committees for Supply and Production (CLAP), the program responsible for distributing subsidized food in Venezuela.

POLICE IN CANADA ARE TRACKING PEOPLE’S ‘NEGATIVE’ BEHAVIOR IN A ‘RISK' DATABASE

Police, social services, and health workers in Canada are using shared databases to track the behaviour of vulnerable people—including minors and people experiencing homelessness—with little oversight and often without consent.

Documents obtained by Motherboard from Ontario’s Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services (MCSCS) through an access to information request show that at least two provinces—Ontario and Saskatchewan—maintain a “Risk-driven Tracking Database” that is used to amass highly sensitive information about people’s lives. Information in the database includes whether a person uses drugs, has been the victim of an assault, or lives in a “negative neighborhood.”

The Risk-driven Tracking Database (RTD) is part of a collaborative approach to policing called the Hub model that partners cops, school staff, social workers, health care workers, and the provincial government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes me very worried about Canadians who may be "targeted" by people with an axe to grind, turning in their neighbors just out of spite or contempt.

I wonder who has the job of "looking after" Christian pacifist activists, who are completely against war as an immoral way of resolving international situations, and look to document the truth as they see it.

US ARMY TAKES 50 TONS OF GOLD FROM SYRIA IN ALLEGED DEAL WITH ISIS

As the remaining pockets of ISIS fighters faced imminent defeat in northeast Syria, the United States allegedly gave them an offer they couldn’t refuse: give us your massive caches of gold — or die.

According to reports by Syrian state news agency SANA, U.S. forces struck a deal with ISIS whereby the terrorist group would give up 50 tons of gold across eastern Syria’s Deir el-Zour province in exchange for safe passage.

The precious metal, worth about $2.13 billion, was plundered by the self-designated “caliphate” as its reign of terror spread across Syria and Iraq between 2015 and 2017.

Turkish newspaper Daily Sabah reports that local sources claim U.S. Army helicopters have already transferred the gold from the U.S. forces’ base in Kobani, the Kurdish-controlled city that lies close to Syria’s northern border with Syria. A portion of the gold was also distributed to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which dominates the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder to what ends the remaining gold will be accountable to the people of the US.

Universal Background Check Bill Passes with Bipartisan Support

H.R.8, known as the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, passed the US House of Representatives. The bill passed the chamber of Congress by a vote of 240 to 190. News media outlets like CNN claim that the bill passed with bipartisan support. Looking at the breakdown of the vote, the proposed law did not enjoy as much bipartisan support as CNN claimed. The bill will now move to the Senate where it most likely will be dead on arrival. The Republicans hold the majority in the Senate, and it would take a super majority of 60 to advance the bill to President Trump's desk.
