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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that this lady has made some very interesting personal choices along the way in her life; one has to wonder just how those choices are going to play out in any re-election hopes she may have, now that they are out in the open.

Momo Massacre? Nasdaq Is Crashing As Major Factor Reversal Strikes

While the catalyst for this sudden move is unclear, the fact is a notable regime shift is underway today in factors as the long-momo-short-value trade is reversing fast as Treasury yields tumble.

Lawyers to seek asylum for Julian Assange in France

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope and pray France does the right thing here.

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

China Injects A Record 5 Trillion Yuan In New Debt To Arrest Economic Crash

There was a palpable sense of disappointment last night when instead of cutting its benchmark overnight interest rates as some - notably Goldman Sachs - had speculated might happen, the PBOC announced that it would only lower its benchmark 1- and 5-year lending rates, i.e., Loan Prime Rate, by 10 bps to 4.05% and 5bps to 4.75% respectively, a move that was widely anticipated.

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

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

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

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

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

Holy crud, are you flipping kidding me?!?

“Wages Slavery and Chattel Slavery”

As the Lowell system of factory work became more prevalent, so too did the public debate over the justice and morality of such labor. Labor organizers routinely called for a reduction in working hours, citing the ill effects upon the health and morale of workers. Although legislators were often slow to intervene in freely-entered contracts between management and labor, in most states, protective legislation of various kinds did eventually pass, if only to alleviate the concerns and criticisms of labor reformers like Orestes Bronson and William West.

The abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglas after several years of experience as a “free man” concluded: “experience demonstrates that there may be a slavery of wages only a little less galling and crushing in its effects than chattel slavery.”

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

THAT... is where these activists really have to start, in a peaceful, logical, and responsible way.

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kansas Man Facing 25 Years For Cannabis That Stopped Chronic Seizures

Kansas has got to be the worst state to get busted in for pot. They have actually let medical marijuana patients die in their jails. Corrupt to the core!

A Kansas resident is facing 25 years in prison for growing a single marijuana plant. Larry Burgess, a cancer survivor, turned to marijuana when prescription drugs failed to alleviate his seizure disorder.
No Cannabis Love in Kansas

“No seizure medication helped. In fact, my seizures got progressively worse over time. It was terrible. Terrible. At my lowest I contemplated suicide,” Burgess told KCTV5 News. At one point, he was taking 23 pills per day to combat the seizures with little effect.

Fredonia, Kan., authorities were possibly tipped off when Burgess chronicled his marijuana-growing endeavors on Instagram.

Trump Issues Pardon for Ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik

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

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

Trump & The Masonic Jewish Tag Team

This article from Jan 17, 2017, is looking increasingly prescient.

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

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

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

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

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

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

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

Iraq, China launch 'oil for reconstruction' agreement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Authored by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff via The Gatestone Institute,

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

New Estimates Suggest Chinese Tech Shipments Are About To Crash

Now that Apple has opened the floodgates and made it entirely clear that China's economic collapse will slash revenue guidance on the year and lead to production woes through April, an onslaught of earnings downgrades from other top technology companies with significant operations in China could be imminent.

Evidence grows by the day of supply chains grinding to a halt as the second-largest economy in the world falters (as described here last week)...

We've described how China's economic output remains frozen, and even if supply chains were able to restart, companies don't have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster. Worse, workers can't freely move around the country, and many are subjected to travel restrictions and quarantines, which has forced a massive labor shortage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all of you who like your "big box shops", whatever the names of those venues might be; if there is any stuff you buy which originates in China, now might be the time to stockpile, because with Chinese factories and fulfillment centers shut down, it might be quite a while before those products come in again.
