Google’s Eric Schmidt, arbiter of news, has long history with Obama & Clinton

Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google's parent company Alphabet, announced that his company will 'de-rank' RT's articles online, calling them propaganda. Is he concerned for the integrity of news, or are his motives more partisan?

The 62-year-old, with an estimated wealth of $11.1 billion, has never hidden his political leanings, jumping straight into Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign long before she officially announced her candidacy. In one of John Podesta's leaked emails, the long-time Clinton confidant and chairman of her presidential campaign told her soon-to-be campaign manager Robby Mook that he had met with Schmidt in April 2014, more than a year before Clinton told the American public that she was hoping to become their next president.

'I have been hit, kicked and restrained from behind - by FIRST-GRADERS': At least 45 Pennsylvania teachers resign in just three months due to student violence and those that remain are 'begging' for help from school board

Dozens of teachers have quit their jobs in Pennsylvania's capital city amid a wave of violence from students as early as the first grade, it has emerged.
The Harrisburg Education Association (HEA) said that at least 45 teachers resigned between July and October, and more have followed since. Those who remain are now demanding more help from administrators.
'I have been kicked, punched, hit, scratched. I've had a student physically restraining me in front of my other students,' first-grade teacher Amanda Shaeffer told board members, according to Penn Live.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, in fact, these charges are true (and I would tend to believe they are), where the hell are the parents of these children, and why do they believe that their kids' behaviour is acceptable, for a second?!?

Why has this bullying of teachers (and most probably other kids) become the "new normal" in America's schools?!?

Outbreak Alert: Hepatitis A Outbreak In Salt Lake City Expected To Last MONTHS - Mac Slavo

Salt Lake City, Utah is only one of three major cities in the United States experiencing a Hepatitis A outbreak. And now health officials are warning residents to protect themselves against infection, as the outbreak is expected to last for “months.”

There seems to be no end in sight for the cities grabbling with Hepatitis A outbreaks. Spurred by over-regulation and taxation, homelessness is now the norm in many US cities, Salt Lake City being no different. And Health officials in Utah now believe they could continue to see new cases of Hepatitis A for the next several months.

The first outbreak of Hep A began in back in May in San Diego, but Salt Lake City started to notice serious issues in August. Since then, at least 75 cases have been reported statewide. With at least 3-4 new cases being discovered each week. The normal amount of Hepatitis A cases is around 2-4 per year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has to be more than a little terrifying for health care workers, and the people who live in Salt Lake City.

The Great Retirement Con - Adam Taggart

So, it’s little surprise that the 1970s and ’80s saw the introduction of personal retirement savings plans. The Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) was formed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) in 1974. And the first 401k plan was created in 1980.

These savings vehicles are defined contribution plans. The future payout of the plan is variable (i.e., unknown today), and will be largely a function of how much of their income the worker directs into the fund over their career, as well as the market return on the fund’s investments.

Touted as a revolutionary improvement for the worker, these plans promised to give the individual power over his/her own financial destiny. No longer would it be dictated by their employer.

Your company doesn’t offer a pension? No worries: open an IRA and create your own personal pension fund.

Afraid your employer might mismanage your pension fund? A 401k removes that risk. You decide how your retirement money is invested.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is little more than a shuffle/hustle which gives people the illusion that they actually have real money for retirement, when they absolutely do not.

Lebanese Army On "Full Combat Readiness" At Southern Border To Counter "Israeli Enemy"

Two days after Israel provided the first ever official confirmation of covert ties with Saudi Arabia, a step many analysts see as a precursor to future conflict in the Middle East involving adversaries Iran and Lebanon, on Tuesday the head of the Lebanese Army told the military to be at “full combat readiness” to face “the Israeli enemy” at the country's southern border. The announcement comes as Arab nations, including Saudi Arabia, vow to tighten their grip on Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would not surprise me much if both Saudi Arabia and Israel went into Lebanon this weekend, with Americans collectively sedated from all the tryptophane in the turkey they consumed for Thanksgiving, and focused on football and Christmas shopping.

I hope that I am wrong, but I am intuiting a massive buildup in tensions in the Middle East, from the Saudi purge, and the its government's statements that both Lebanon and Iran had begun a war against it.

You cannot keep any army on highest alert for a long period of time without sacrificing energy and awareness of those troops; I suspect that some movement from Israel and/or Saudi Arabia against Lebanon may well be imminent.

Nearly 200 Million People Are “Modern Slaves” or Child Laborers

According to a report by the United Nations’ International Labour Organization, nearly 200 million people are victims of modern slavery or child labor around the globe. In 2016, 40.3 million men, women and children were victims of modern slavery. Nearly one in ten children, or 151.6 million people, are victims of child labor.

The report defines “modern slavery” as “the various forms of coercion prohibited in international instruments on human rights and labour standards.” This definition includes slavery, state-imposed forced labor, forced marriage, and human trafficking. One in four victims of forced labor are children, and 71 percent of total victims are female.

On any given day in 2016, approximately 16 million individuals were forced to work in the private sector. More than half of this labor involves the domestic, construction and manufacturing sectors. On average, victims are held for 20.5 months before escaping or being released.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Only way to get this exploitation to stop, is by naming and shaming those corporations making a killing (literally and figuratively), by exploiting child and slave labor.

Let's start with some of the most egregious examples:

10 companies which still use child labor

5 companies still using slave labor

Top 28 companies still using Child Labor

Stop Supporting Child Slavery by Avoiding these 7 Companies

Finding the names of current heads of these corporations is pretty easy; then, a polite phone call needs to be made to these people, informing them (or their executive assistants) that you will refuse to buy the products they create, because they are created with child/slave labour.

One call won't make a difference, but a number of phone calls, polite and literate in their tone, will indicate to that corporate head that there is an issue, and rethink the way it sources product. Consumers do have more power than they believe, and this is one of the areas where we can make a positive difference.

U.S. MILITARY SHOULD ‘CHOKE’ NORTH KOREA TO ‘SUBMISSION,’ RETIRED NAVY LIEUTENANT SAYS

President Donald Trump should deploy a naval blockade against North Korea in order to stop its nuclear weapons program, argues retired Navy Lieutenant Commander Gregory Keely.

Keely, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and was also a senior advisor to the House Armed Services Committee and House Foreign Relations Committee, believes that a naval blockade is the best tactic to get Kim Jon Un to abandon his drive to obtain nuclear warheads that reach the U.S.

“Like sanctions, blockades are designed to slowly choke the recalcitrant nation to submission,” he writes in a recent op-ed for The Hill. “Unlike sanctions, a blockade provides the capabilities to monitor, intercept and enforce restrictions on what can go in and out of the target nation while providing a powerful psychological and diplomatic instrument.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a double Jon-Luc Picard facepalm, at warp speed, upon reading this.

Apparently, this retired Navy Lieutenant Commander Gregory Keely suffers from an acute intellectual deficiency shared others in civilian and military leadership, and this is the pathological inability to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

I would very much like to politely ask the gentleman, please, how this is NOT going to get China at war, on North Korea's side, should such a blockade be undertaken by the US military?!?

A million children orphaned by the Syrian war

As many as a million children have been orphaned by the war in Syria which is in its sixth year.

The UN has warned against the dangers facing children without parents such as lack of education, trafficking and being indoctrinated by armed groups.

Many children are living in orphanages being run by local charities both inside Syria and abroad.

"I was five years old when Shabiha attacked and rounded everyone up," said Mariam al Shalan, an orphan from Homs.

"Then they opened fire and killed everyone. My mother came in fornt of us and took the bullets.

"My mother asked me for water. When I came back, she was dead. Me and my brother spent two days under the blood and the bodies."

In a centre for orphans in the opposition-controlled city of Idlib, almost every child that has been affected by the war suffers from trauma and psychological stress

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a huge degree of responsibility the US government should bear for creating so many orphans in Syria, by backing, funding, and training the alleged "moderate rebels" (of which there were none), and getting so many Syrian moms, dads, and family members assassinated, in their attempt to destabilize the Al Assad government.

Of course, it won't; in the minds of Pentagon, State Department, and White House Planners, "The Ends Justify the means", even when the means translates to the slaughter of innocents; the people killed are not even people anymore, just "collateral damage."

US Airstrikes Target Taliban Opium Labs

In a move Pentagon officials say is directed at Taliban revenue streams, US F-22 stealth fighters and B-52 Stratofortress bombers attacked what they’re describing as “opium labs” in the northern part of the Helmand Province.

A pair of buildings were destroyed in the attack, which Gen. John Nicholson claimed caused “minimal collateral damage.” Nicholson noted there was a third building they didn’t attack, claiming it was to avoid civilian casualties.

Mich of Helmand Province is dedicated to opium farming, which is why the Taliban has long been interested in controlling the area. This talk of labs and factories is new, however, and it’s not clear what these buildings were actually for.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

TRANSLATION: IF, in fact, these were heroin production labs, the US military may well have just taken out its competition for these resources.

Why Are We Helping Saudi Arabia Destroy Yemen?

It’s remarkable that whenever you read an article about Yemen in the mainstream media, the central role of Saudi Arabia and the United States in the tragedy is glossed over or completely ignored. A recent Washington Post article purporting to tell us “how things got so bad” explains to us that, “it’s a complicated story” involving “warring regional superpowers, terrorism, oil, and an impending climate catastrophe.”

No, Washington Post, it’s simpler than that. The tragedy in Yemen is the result of foreign military intervention in the internal affairs of that country. It started with the “Arab Spring” which had all the fingerprints of State Department meddling, and it escalated with 2015’s unprovoked Saudi attack on the country to reinstall Riyadh’s preferred leader. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed and millions more are at risk as starvation and cholera rage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dr. Paul, some of us, particularly contributors to WRH, HAVE been paying attention.

And what we are seeing, is a clear case of the US government colluding in Saudi war crimes; the assassinations and maiming of Yemeni children; starvation of Yemeni children to death, and the introduction of (perhaps weaponized) cholera to the country, which has slain, and will slay, countless more.

In fact, I am somewhat amazed that Prince Bin Salman hasn't ordered an all-out carpet bombing of the country, not allowing one one Yemeni individual to survive.

Perhaps that is the next step in the Butcher of Yemen's strategy.

The analogy of which I am most clearly reminded, is that if the response by the Papal Legate, who ordered a seige of the the Cathars, holding out at Montsegeur, France. When informed by his soldiers that women, children, and infants, were with the beseiged men, he gave the following order: "Kill them all; God will find his own."

But I can tell you that I am profoundly morally uncomfortable, being a citizen of a country for whose leadership, the commission of war crimes in Yemen "is no big deal"; but then again, I have always known, or at least intuited, that those on their way to seizing and consolidating political, financial, or military power in this country, have had their consciences surgically removed.

OFFICIALS CAUGHT FORCING STATE SCIENTIST TO ALTER FINDINGS TO COVER UP EARTHQUAKE FRACKING LINK

Hydraulic fracturing is a natural gas extraction method that has become extremely controversial for its environmental impacts. Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the rock to release the gas inside. Water, sand, and chemicals are injected into the rock at high pressure, which allows the gas to flow out to the head of the well. Wastewater produced from this process is highly toxic and filled with a variety of chemicals.

In many cases, people who live near fracking sites have been able to set fire to the water and air that comes through their pipes. It has also been found to contaminate drinking water. Unfortunately, fracking is still somewhat popular publicly because people know very little about it and it is also popular politically because all of the politicians have a hand in it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but is this not somewhat akin to forcing a radiologist to "touch up" an x-ray, to assure the patient that their cancer isn't really so bad?!?

‘US invaded Afghanistan to restore heroin industry’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This narrative is very hard to hear, as someone who values peace and social justice, but this is the brutal reality of why we stayed so long in Vietnam, when the war the US was fighting was unwinnable, and why we have stayed so long in Afghanistan, when this war is also unwinnable.

This is a $1.5 trillion dollar industry, the profits from which are used to fund "off the shelf" operations for various US "alphabet soup" agencies use, over which Congress has utterly no oversight whatsoever.

It is sobering to think that the biggest drug pusher in the US ... is the US government itself.

It's about the drugs; it's about the money that is made by these drugs, and about the massive money made by laundering the money on these drugs, which large financial houses love to do.

'Scoop' based on Moscow rumors, another low in British media coverage of Russia

But, of course, none of these “insiders” have names. Which means we have to take The Independent’s word for it. Confidence is reduced midway through the lengthy piece when the report contradicts itself. Citing “one high-level source,” the writer tells us “Mr. Putin likes the unexpected; and when he makes changes, he will confer with no one.”

This is brain busting stuff. Because if Putin confers with nobody before making changes, then the only way Oliver Carroll’s story could be true is if he spoke to the Russian president himself. And he’d make an extremely unlikely confidant of Putin.

So who are the actual named sources here?

International Criminal Court to investigate CIA black sites in Afghanistan

The chief investigator of the International Criminal Court, Fatou Bensouda, has asked for judicial permission to launch an investigation into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Afghanistan, the ICC said.

According to an ICC statement, the investigation will look into crimes allegedly committed in Afghanistan since May 1, 2003, as well as any crimes linked the conflict that took place outside it since July 1, 2002. The parties under investigation will be the Taliban and another powerful Islamist group, the Haqqani Network, both of which also operate in Pakistan, as well as the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), in particular, members of the National Directorate for Security (NDS) and the Afghan National Police (ANP).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see if there is anything which is allowed to be revealed here; the American people, a generally reasonably moral lot, have the right to know what has been done in their names, and with their tax dollars.

FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show

An FBI informant gathered extensive evidence during his six years undercover about a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels, according to more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation.

The memos, reviewed by The Hill, conflict with statements made by Justice Department officials in recent days that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.

Campbell documented for his FBI handlers the first illegal activity by Russians nuclear industry officials in fall 2009, nearly a entire year before the Russian state-owned Rosatom nuclear firm won Obama administration approval for the Uranium One deal, the memos show.

POLICE ARE USING DNA MUGSHOTS TO ARREST INNOCENT PEOPLE

A recent Washington Times article, boasts that Texas law enforcement used predictive DNA imaging or 'Phenotyping' to guess what a suspect’s physical characteristics might be.

This is not a joke, this is actually happening in police departments across the country.

Parabon Nanolabs, claims their new analysis service can accurately predict what a suspect or victim looks like based on a sample of their DNA.

"Snapshot is a revolutionary new forensic DNA analysis service that accurately predicts the physical appearance and ancestry of an unknown person from DNA. "

Parabon, boasts that Snapshot will produce a 'detailed report and composite profile that includes eye color, skin color, hair color, face morphology, and detailed biogeographic ancestry based on a single DNA sample'.

A 2015, NY Times article warns that Parabon has not published any information in peer-reviewed journals that could validate their claims.

IS TRUMP RIGHT ABOUT SOMETHING 'VERY FISHY' IN FOSTER DEATH?

If President Trump still believes, as he said last year, that there’s something “very fishy” about the official Independent Counsel report on the still-mysterious death of Bill Clinton’s White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster, he might want to reconsider one of his new candidates for nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

One of five candidates for a potential opening on the court named Friday by Trump is Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Conspicuously not mentioned in that biography is Kavanaugh’s role in leading the badly flawed investigation into the death of Vincent Foster in July 1993.

Lerner, Paz say they fear physical harm from enraged public, want IRS testimony sealed permanently

Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

“Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.

Tur asked Allred if her client, Beverly Young Nelson, saw Roy Moore sign her yearbook.

Allred answered, “I don’t believe at the time she had a clue whether he was an assistant D.A. or a D.A., but he signed it, she took it. As far as she knows, I mean, there’s no reason for her to think it’s anybody’s but his signature.

Tur responded, “But did she see him sign it?”

“You know, I don’t — I haven’t asked her if she saw him, but we did describe what happened that evening in question. What she alleges was that she put it on the counter; that I think she asked to sign — or that he did sign it. That’s all,” Allred said.

The host responded, “I ask this, because it seems you’re not 100% sure that it is his signature, and if you’re not 100% sure that it is his signature, why would you show it at a press conference?”

Broaddrick: ‘Great Epiphany’ About Bill Clinton Should Have Happened 20 Years Ago

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Bill Clinton accusers Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick stated they were skeptical about the sincerity of those on the left who have recently come out against Bill Clinton.

Jones said, “Well, it’s a little bit too late for that now, isn’t it? So, it makes you wonder if they really, truly mean what they say. Because us women did not get any kind of help whatsoever from any of those liberal women. They ridiculed us. We were called all kind of names. We were not believed. And I just — I hope that it’s true that they think that now, but I don’t know that it’s — that I believe it.”

Broaddrick stated, “It’s absolutely disgusting, Laura. This great epiphany, that should have occurred 20 years ago, coming about now is — I should feel ecstatic about it, but I don’t. I feel very disappointed that they waited two decades to do this.”

PolitiFact's guide to fake news websites and what they peddle

At first look, BostonTribune.com certainly seems a trustworthy source. So does KMT11.com. And ABCNews.com.co. Even 24wpn.com has an official ring to it.

But all of these websites peddle bogus stories, either by making up fake news or sharing it from other sources. And it’s not always apparent to readers that’s the case.

Since December, we at PolitiFact have been partnering with Facebook to root out fabricated reports shared by social media users. As of April 19, we’ve written more than 80 fact-checks about fake news stories. We’ve noted some trends along the way, chief among them that it can be really difficult for readers — from casual skimmers to seasoned newshounds — to spot fake news outlets when they pop up.

It’s also difficult to determine where these fictional stories come from, and just how they spread across the Internet.

The Absurdities of America's Syrian War Propaganda

As if we have no memory, corporate media continues to recycle accusations of starvation, chemical weapons, and more, in the propaganda war on Syria.

In Syria, there never was a “revolution.” Instead, it was a premeditated war on Syria by foreign powers (namely the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, and Israel) who armed even Al-Qaeda (something Qatar recently admitted).

In support of the conflict comes some of the most egregious war propaganda, endorsed by media, Hollywood celebs, and faux human rights groups. The following is a brief outline of some of the most obvious hoax personalities and purveyors of misinformation on Syria.

No Proof Iran Behind Houthi Missile Launch

A UN panel appointed by the UN Security Council says it has seen no proof of Saudi Arabia’s claims that Iran was responsible for the recent missile attack by the Yemeni Houthi fighters targeting Riyadh. In a confidential letter sent to UNSC diplomats on Nov. 10, the panel said they had seen no evidence to support Saudi claims that short-range ballistic missiles have been transferred to Yemeni forces in violation of UNSC resolutions, the US-based investigative website The Intercept reported on Friday. Saudi Arabia has accused Iran of supplying Houthis with short-range ballistic missiles, one of which was intercepted by the Saudi Air Force in midair before targeting an airport near Riyadh on Nov. 4. Top American officials, including US President Donald Trump, have also repeated Saudi accusations against Iran.

South Detects "Engine Test" At North Korean Nuclear Facility

More than two months have passed since North Korea held one of its missile tests - the longest period of tranquility this year, although it may be ending soon: South Korea’s National Intelligence Service warned on Monday that it has detected suspicious activity at the North’s missile research facility – the latest sign that another test may occur by the end of the year. South Korean intelligence has on more than one occasion captured spy satellite images of the North Korean military transporting equipment from the North’s missile facility near Pyongyang. While security analysts speculated at the time that these movements could portend another missile test, none have materialized.

I think it is only a question of time before he orders another missile test.

Meanwhile In Sweden, Crime Hits All Time Highs

It appears President Trump, having warned that Sweden's huge intake of refugees would lead to "problems like they never thought possible," has been vindicated.

And now nine months later, Trump's worst fears - and the lies of Swedish authorities - have been confirmed.

Bloomberg reports that the number of Swedes who were victims of crimes such as fraud and sexual offenses jumped to the highest level on record last year.

A survey by the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention showed that 15.6 percent of people suffered one or more offences against the person (defined in the survey as assault, threats, sexual offences, robbery, fraud or harassment) last year. That’s up from 13.3 percent in 2015 and the highest number recorded since the annual Swedish Crime Survey started in 2006.

Entire Baltimore Neighborhood Under Lockdown: "Police Declared Martial Law"

Five days ago, Det. Sean Suiter, a married father of five and an 18-year veteran with the Baltimore Police, was patrolling the streets of West Baltimore around 5pm last Wednesday when he saw suspicious activity. Suiter approached a man and was shot point blank in the head, in a summary execution. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition where he later died of his injuries.

In response, Baltimore Police reacted with ‘fire and fury’ turning the neighborhood where Suiter was shot into an “open-air prison”, shutting down city streets and enabling checkpoints for citizens while officers in tactical gear went door to door, according to Baltimore Brew. Residents were prohibited from entering their own neighborhood unless they showed proper identification, these extreme measures have been in place for 4-5 days.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder for just how many more days will the Baltimore Police Department be doing this, and what impact it will have overall, on crime in this city?!?

Brennan and Clapper: Elder Statesmen of the Intelligence Community or “Serial Fabricators”?

In other words, after an arduous 12 month-long investigation involving both Houses of Congress, a Special Counsel, and a small army of high-paid Washington attorneys, the only straw Brennan has found to hold on to, is a few innocuous advertisements posted on Facebook and Twitter that had no noticeable impact on the election at all. That’s a very weak foundation upon which to build a case for foreign espionage or presidential collusion. It’s hard not to conclude that the public has been seriously misled by the leaders of this campaign.

Entire Bedouin village faced with forced displacement

An entire village consisting of dozens of Palestinian Bedouin families is threatened with imminent forced displacement, after Israel issued a rare evacuation order for the whole community.

Jabal al-Baba, which lies to the east of Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank, is home to more than 300 people.

"Residents are becoming paranoid of the future because it is unknown," Atalah Jahalen, a local community leader, told Al Jazeera on Saturday.

"All their lives, they have lived and built in this area, and now all of it can be destroyed at any moment."

According to Jahalen, Israel's civil administration and police entered Jabal al-Baba on Thursday. They hung a poster in a central location detailing the evacuation decision and displaying a map of the area.

The order informed residents that they had eight days to collect their belongings and leave, or else Israeli authorities would return to force them out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This strategy, on Israel's part, makes a potential contiguous Palestinian state impossible; and secondly, where, please, are these soon to be dispossessed Palestinians supposed to go?!?

Coming to grips with the fear of war in Lebanon

Ahmad Tajeldin Abdullah remembers when his neighbourhood was filled with dead bodies. Three years ago, on the streets of Tripoli, he witnessed snipers shoot children on their walk to school, homes destroyed by explosions, and women being shot while hanging laundry outside.

Abdullah was starting to get used to peace in his country, but now he is terrified that it is about to end.

"I can already see a war coming," he says. "I have a daughter who's just 13 days old. I'm afraid for my children's lives."

OPINION
Is Lebanon on the verge of another conflict?
Halim Shebaya
by Halim Shebaya
His fear stems from a political crisis brewing in Lebanon.

It started on November 4, when Prime Minister Saad Hariri abruptly resigned.

He made the announcement from Saudi Arabia, fell off the radar for eight days, and then broke his silence in a televised interview, again from Saudi.

The series of events fueled rumours that Saudi forced Hariri to resign.

It is not only Iran and Saudi Arabia vying for political power here; it is also Israel as well.

The colour-coded Israeli ID system for Palestinians

After the 1967 war, the Israeli military declared the occupied territories to be closed areas, making it mandatory for Palestinian residents to obtain permits to enter or leave. Palestinians who were abroad during that time missed out on the subsequent population census and were not granted identification papers.

The clear delineator that has separated and dictated the lives of these Palestinians is the colour-coded identification system issued by the Israeli military and reinforced in 1981 through its Civil Administration branch. Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip have green IDs - generally issued once they turn 16 - while Palestinians in East Jerusalem and Israel have blue IDs.

The cards affect everything from freedom of movement to family unity.

Tool of control

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is painfully ironic, in light of the reality that it was the Nazis in Germany who initiated color coded and shaped badges with which to identify prisoners:

STARVED, ‘MUTILATED’ AND BLACKMAILED, MIGRANTS AUCTIONED OFF AS SLAVES, BY SMUGGLERS IN LIBYA

From becoming one of the major points in Africa from which migrants can attempt to cross over into Europe, Libya is now turning into a slave trade city thanks to the heavy flow of desperate people from other parts of the continent. A new investigation has revealed people are being sold as modern-day slaves for as little as £300 ($400).
According to CNN which exposed the racket, slave sales are conducted on the outskirts of the nation’s capital, Tripoli, where auctions take place for various types of manual labourers. In one case, a video was made available, which shows the sale of “big strong boys for farm work”.
An undercover operation revealed similar auctions where around a dozen people were sold in a matter of five to six minutes. “Does anybody need a digger? This is a digger, a big, strong man, he’ll dig,” an auctioneer calls out in one clip. “What am I bid, what am I bid?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In her cheerleading for the forcible removal of Ghadaffi as the governmental head of Libya via assassination, did Hillary Clinton ever see this possibility coming?!?

That a new slave trade would result from the wake of his assassination?!?

The short answer has to be, "Hell, no!!"

US Quietly Builds Up Troops in Somalia

One of the many quiet escalations in countries where US military operations on the ground hadn’t really been well publicized in the first place, officials say that the US has more than doubled the number of ground troops in Somalia this year, and now have over 500 troops there.

This is the most troops the US have had in the country since 1993, when the Black Hawk Down incident killed 18 US soldiers and led to a quick withdrawal from the nation. This year was also the first year since 1993 that any US troops died in Somalia.

This escalation has involved a soaring number of US airstrikes in Somalia, not to mention a number of joint ground operations with Somali forces, mostly against al-Shabaab fighters, but many of them with very unclear goals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "goals" of this escalation are entirely clear, if one knows where to look for them:

Natural resources: uranium and largely unexploited reserves of iron ore, tin, gypsum, bauxite, copper, salt, natural gas, likely oil reserves
Definition: This entry lists a country's mineral, petroleum, hydropower, and other resources of commercial importance.

You can see the words "largely unexploited"; that is the whole point;
the US government wants to get to those resources before Russia/China can lay claim to them; it is just that simple.

60 Minutes, barred from Yemen, still got the footage

This week on 60 Minutes, correspondent Scott Pelley reports on the dire conditions for children in Yemen. The situation is so severe that, according to the U.N., a child in Yemen dies every ten minutes. But the widespread starvation is an underreported story because, as Pelley explains, the Saudi-led blockade that's cutting off food supplies is also blocking journalists from entering Yemen.

"As soon as we got to Djibouti, the Saudis rescinded the permission that they had given us to be on the ship," Pelley says. So the team started asking questions. Was the ship being held in port? No, they were told. It was still going; they were not.

From the window in their hotel room, they watched the ship depart without them.

Though physically blocked, the team was not deterred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo to 60 minutes for actually getting the footage out of Yemen they did; they were very ingenious and very inventive in making this work.

However, that being said, the US government's fealty here is to Saudi Arabia, in what can only be characterized as a genocide in Yemen, courtesy of its Butcher in Chief, Saudi Arabia's Prince Salman, who appears to be taking over as King this week, while Americans will be dozing from the L-tryptophane in their turkey.

I am profoundly morally uncomfortable being a citizen of a country colluding with the Saudis in war crimes in Yemen, and firmly believe that US citizens need to be having a very public, and peaceful, but loud and detailed, conversation about why this country's leadership is completely morally comfortable in their participation in war crimes in Yemen.

Because in my world, one Yemeni kid who has been assassinated by Saudi airstrikes, with US military "guidance"; one Yemeni kid who has died from complications of malnutration; or one Yemeni kid who has been killed by exposure to cholera (possibly weaponised), is one Yemeni kid too many.

US War Zone Deaths Rising for First Time in Six Years

Escalations in US operations across the world have led to an increase in the number of US troops being killed in war zones, with 2017 the first time the year-over-year deaths have risen in six years.

26 soldiers were killed in 2016, down from 28 in 2015. This year still has a month and a half to go, and the figure is already up to 31. That death toll does not include a number of sailors killed in ship collisions, which were not inside war zones.

This is not close to the number of US combat deaths during the height of the US occupation of Iraq, with over 1,000 troops killed in 2007. Still, there is every reason to believe that the trend will be continued increases in deaths.

That’s because deployments aren’t just being done in the usual warzones of Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan, but increasingly US troops are finding themselves in harms way is places like Niger, where they are in small numbers with little access to backup when things turn bad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Karl Marx made the observation that "all wars are economic" in origin, the guy wasn't smoking opium.

These are all wars for resources; not wars for "defending the American way of life"; not for patriotism; not for "freedom", however that may be defined in the USA in the 21st century, with every keystroke, and every telephone call surveilled, and every physical movement you make recorded from your phone's GPS.

These are all about regime-change; forcing foreign governments to become more US/Western centric; expropriating resources to which neither the US government, nor the corporations which own it, have any moral right; and then insuring that these resources are all only sold to "approved " countries and only for the US dollar.

Hezbollah On "High Alert", Says It Will Be Blamed For 'False Flag' Assassination Attempt

Hezbollah has raised its military readiness on the whole Lebanese territory in the last few days and put its forces on high alert in the light of the threats it has received from a number of countries, and especially from Israel and Saudi Arabia. Hezbollah forces have been mobilized in the event of any hostile activity on the borders or in the country, notwithstanding the ongoing conviction of its leadership that Israel will not wage a direct war in the near or distant future.

According to well informed sources, Hezbollah fears the possible assassination of a well-known Lebanese figure, Sunni or Christian, similar to the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005. The aim would be to re-mix the cards on the Lebanese scene, accuse Hezbollah and to embarrass President Michel Aoun.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hezbollah and Lebanon have every reason to be concerned about this possibility, particularly with Prince Salman's grand designs on the region, which may well include war against both Lebanon and Iran.

The entire Middle East appears to be one big tinderbox right at this moment, just waiting for someone, or something, to set it alight.

'No Arab Capital Safe From Iran’s Missiles’

'No Arab capital safe from Iran’s missiles,’ Saudi FM warns at emergency meeting

Saudi Arabia urged fellow Arab League nations to find a “non-compromise” solution to deal with “Iran’s aggression” and “disregard for international law” during a specially-summoned foreign ministers’ meeting in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
“We will not stand idly by in the face of Iran’s aggression,” Riyadh’s foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, said in public remarks to the assembled officials.

The Saudi official accused Tehran of “meddling” in various Middle Eastern states, particularly focusing on the Houthi faction in Yemen, and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The minister, a long-time ambassador to the US appointed as foreign minister two years ago, said that 80 Iran-manufactured missiles had been launched from Yemen since the conflict broke out in the country in March 2015.

Detecting Disinformation Agents

There are several types of disinformation agents, from high-profile ones who gain a lot of publicity and promote well-crafted stories, to low-level ones who serve to flood the Internet with less reputable claims. This document deals primarily with the former.

The ultimate purpose of a disinformation agent is three-fold:

a) to create a sense of ridicule about anything that they include in their story so that even what is true will be not be believed by intelligent people,

b) to mislead those who are gullible enough to believe their story, and

c) to divert the efforts of those who seek to know the truth through further investigation.

Although disinformation agents are used to cover up the truth, their claims should not be written off completely, since they can still teach us something about the underlying truth that they’re meant to cover up.

NATO Adds to Turkey’s Chagrin. Turkish Good-Bye to NATO?

There has long been speculation about a Turkish good-bye to NATO.

The U.S. and its military proxy organization in Europe are doing their best to further such a move:

The image of Atatürk was displayed as a target during the drill at NATO’s Joint Warfare Center in Stavanger, Norway held between Nov. 8 and Nov. 17, while a NATO soldier posted defamatory words about Erdo?an on the social media.

Atatürk is the founder of the secular Turkey. He was designated as “target” during a desk-top drill. NATO’s Joint Warfare Center is not a low level school but an elite officer training institution led by a Major-General. The 40 Turkish soldiers who attended the training course were immediately ordered back home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turkey now appears, both economically, and militarily, to be moving toward a more Russian/Chinese orbit, and NATO has no one but itself to blame for this.

The US-led War Against ISIS Is Killing 31 Times More Civilians Than Claimed. Report

The Pentagon claims that its air war against ISIS is one of the most accurate in history and that it is so careful in who it targets that the 14,000 US airstrikes in Iraq have killed just 89 civilians.

It turns out that the military’s assertion is a stunning underestimation of the true human cost of Washington’s three-year-old war against ISIS. An 18-month-long investigation by the New York Times has found that the US-led military coalition is killing civilians in Iraq at a rate 31 times higher than it’s admitting.

“It is at such a distance from official claims that, in terms of civilian deaths, this may be the least transparent war in recent American history,” Azmat Khan and Anand Gopal report.

Families as pawns: Israel pressures Palestinians into exile through foreign spouse visas

Like many young married couples across the world, Claire and her husband have a five-year-plan. But instead of their main concern being how to deal with the imminent arrival of their first child, Claire’s family is facing the very real possibility of expulsion and exile.

Like scores of other foreigners married to Palestinians in the occupied territory, Claire — whose name has been changed to protect her identity, like all other women interviewed for this article — has struggled to navigate the labyrinthine Israeli bureaucratic process to obtain the necessary paperwork to reside in the West Bank with her husband.

Typical behaviour from a wretchedly aparthied, self-proclaimed theocracy, with nuclear weapons, which is precisely what the state of Israel has become in the 21st century.

Israel bars Palestinian grandmother from visiting slain father’s grave for 70 years

Salwa Salem-Copty hopes to someday return to live in her family’s village in the north of Israel, but at 70 years old, she thinks it is unlikely. Instead she has one request — she would like to be allowed to visit the grave of her father, who was killed when a bus full of workers traveling to Haifa was attacked in April 1948.

Salwa’s mother was pregnant with her at the time, living as an internally displaced person in nearby Nazareth with three young children. She had prepared Easter dinner for her family, as they waited on her husband to return. Instead Salwa’s uncle showed up with the news — Salwa’s father was not coming home.

While the residents of Ma’alul had been kicked out of their village several months previously, when Israeli forces took over the area, demolishing every Palestinian home in the village, residents were still able to bury their dead in the village’s cemeteries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JUST when I think the government of Israel cannot possibly be more heavy-handedly petty, it amazes me yet again with its pig-ignorant, insensitive behaviour.

North Korea’s Submarine Ballistic Missile Program Moves Ahead: Indications of Shipbuilding and Missile Ejection Testing

Commercial satellite imagery of the Sinpo South Shipyard from November 5 indicates that North Korea is on an aggressive schedule to build and deploy its first operational ballistic missile submarine.

The continued movement of parts and components into and out of the parts yards adjacent to the construction halls indicates an ongoing shipbuilding program. The presence of what appear to be sections of a submarine’s pressure hull in the yards suggests construction of a new submarine, possibly the SINPO-C ballistic missile submarine (SSB)[1]—the follow-on to the current SINPO-class experimental ballistic missile submarine (SSBA).[2]

A probable launch canister support, or launch canister, appears to be present within the service tower at the missile test stand suggesting the ongoing ejection testing of submarine launch ballistic missiles (SLBM). Such testing could support the continued development of SLBMs, a new ballistic missile submarine or a combination of both.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In light of the fact that the land around their missile test site has been geologically compromised, this would be a very logical thing which North Korean scientists would want to do.

Saudi 'Corruption' Probe Widens: Dozens Of Military Officials Arrested

After jailing dozens of members of the royal family, and extorting numerous prominent businessmen, 32-year-old Saudi prince Mohammed bin Salman has widened his so-called 'corruption' probe further still.

The Wall Street Journal reports that at least two dozen military officers, including multiple commanders, recently have been rounded up in connection to the Saudi government’s sweeping corruption investigation, according to two senior advisers to the Saudi government.

Additionally, several prominent businessmen also were taken in by Saudi authorities in recent days.

A number of businessmen including Loai Nasser, Mansour al-Balawi, Zuhair Fayez and Abdulrahman Fakieh also were rounded up in recent days, the people said.

Attempts to reach the businessmen or their associates were unsuccessful.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would observe that these arrests of Saudi military are to consolidate power absolutely, so there is not a one of his COs who will not be behind him, one hundred percent, ultimately, for a strike against Iran.

I would like to hope that some of his trusted advisors have at least mentioned that this will most probably mean a war against Russia as well, as Russian military and civilian leadership have consistently stated that should Iran be attacked militarily, Russia will come to its aid.

Ministry warns Russians about possible terror attacks in US, EU during New Year holidaysMore:http://tass.com/society/976271

The Russian Foreign Ministry has warned Russian nationals about possible terrorist attacks in large European and American cities during the Christmas and New Year holiday season. A statement to this effect was made by the ministry’s Crisis Management Center Department on Friday.

"There is a high probability of terrorist attacks in big cities in Europe and the United States during the New Year holidays from December 20 to January 20," the ministry tweeted.

The Russian Foreign Ministry’s Crisis Management Center Department has been set up with a view to responding to emergency situations connected with life, health and safety hazards for Russian citizens abroad.

Senators propose 'USA Liberty Act' to reauthorize NSA surveillance

The question of how to reign in monitoring enabled by Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) has been in the spotlight ever since the Edward Snowden PRISM revelations. What exactly to do about it has gone back and forth, but the latest attempt to "reform" surveillance is here in the form of the USA Liberty Act, a bipartisan proposal introduced by Senators Mike Lee and Patrick Leahy (PDF). The Washington Post figures it has little chance of passage, however, it does contain language that would make government agencies get a warrant before searching information collected by the NSA under Section 702.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the irony and hipocrsy of the title of this legislation; and the serious question which must be asked is, does this legislation actually make us more safe, or simply provide a conduit for surveilling evey bit ofminutiae in our lives?!?

I would politely suggest that it accomplishes the latter, but not the former, and for good reason.

The fastest way to get any kind of terrorism away from the US, or US interests, would be to stop mucking about in other peoples' countries; expropriating resources to which the US government, and the corporations which own, it have utterly no moral right; and insisting that those resources ony be purchased with US petrodollars.

You're welcome, FBI, CIA, DHS, and NSA! :-)

Trump to be presented with $47M deal to arm Ukraine against Russia

President Donald Trump will be presented with the recommendation to finance and sell anti-tank missiles to the Ukrainian government — a move aimed at deterring aggression from pro-Russian separatists, a State Department official told ABC News.

The National Security Council decided during a meeting on Tuesday to greenlight the presentation of a $47 million grant package to the Ukrainian government to purchase American defense arms, including the powerful Javelin anti-tank missiles.

The president and Congress must approve the sale of anti-tank missiles. The Javelin, a portable missile with a steep price-tag, has been described as "The American Military's Anti-Tank Killer."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NO, ABC, this was not a "popular uprising"; can you manage, for one millisecond, not to be regurgitating the official government line, and tell the truth here?!?

This was a US sponsored putsch, which threw Yanukovych under the proverbial bus, and "annointed" the Western-centric darling of the moment, Poroshenko, as president, in an election more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

President Obama himself admitted this in an interview in 2015:

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

And to the "author" of this piece of stinking codswallop; When ABC's "alleged journalists" continue to lie like this, then wonder why their ratings and credibility are well and truly flushed, they have no one to blame but themselves!!

Hillary Clinton, Who Colluded With The Russians, Questions The Legitimacy Of The 2016 Elections Because….Russia

Failed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is now directly questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 elections, citing the discredited deep state narrative that Donald Trump worked with the Russians as one of her reasons despite the fact that her own campaign colluded with “Russian sources” to spread disinformation about President Trump through what would eventually become known as the “Trump dossier.”

Clinton made the comments in a wide ranging interview with the always friendly Mother Jones Senior Reporter Ari Berman where she stated that there are many questions about the actual legitimacy of the last presidential election in which she lost.

During the interview Berman asked Clinton, “So between the Republican voter suppression you talked about and Russian interference, do you think it was a legitimate election?”

TURKISH PRESIDENT ERDOGAN ACCUSES US OF SUPPORTING ISIS

Turkey’s president said, “The administration in the United States has changed but everything remains the same as before.”

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the United States of granting financial aid to members of the Islamic State group, a State Department-listed terrorist organization.

“The United States has disappointed us a lot, saying that it fights Daesh (the Islamic State group) but in reality, it gave them a lot of support,” said the head of state at a meeting of the Justice and Development Party, AKP, the ruling party of Turkey.

Russia has made the similar remarks on several occasions.

The Director of the Information and Press Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zajarova, said that some testimonies indict the U.S. military and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, NATO, for supporting the Islamic State group in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Erdogan and the Russian Spokesperson, Zajarova, are both correct in their observations.

We had a caller into the show yesterday, a gentleman named Roy, who is a wounded Iraq War Veteran, who joined the US military at 18 right after 9/11. He expressed both his disbelief and displeasure at the reality that the US military was providing money, equipment, and training to our alleged "enemies" in the Middle East, just for the purpose of destabilizing countries even further, thus insuring that Middle Eastern oil was only sold in US dollars, and was only going through, and sold to US-approved vendors.

Both ISIS and the Kurds have been proxy groups, used by a succession of US administrations to terrorize various elements in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and prevent, wherever possible, a peaceful resolution to geopolitical problems.

SHOCKING CDC TESTS REVEAL 3,800 US WATER SUPPLIES UP TO 400% MORE CONTAMINATED THAN FLIN

For years there has been an ongoing debate about the levels of lead that have been found in the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, but recent studies have shown that water conditions are just as bad in many other areas throughout the country.

In fact, Reuters recently published neighborhood-level blood lead testing results from 34 states, as well as Washington DC, which were collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The results showed that 3,810 neighborhood areas have levels of lead that are at least double those seen in Flint. Close to half of these sites had levels that were actually four times as high as those in Flint.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fact that this issue of contaminated water has not been vigorously addressed, does not surprise me; there has been a gradual lack of focus on American infrastructure in favor of more bombs and bullets with which the US government ferociously attempts to mandate its will on the rest of the world, while the health and well-being of American citizens... has become irrelevant.

USAID AND WALL STREET: CONFLICTS, COUPS, AND CONQUEST

In 1928 when the US-based United Fruit Company – now known as Chiquita Brands International – faced labor issues in Colombia, it had at its disposal Colombian troops which gunned down hundreds of strikers to maintain production and profits.

Ensuring that Colombia protected “American interests” was the US State Department who hosted company representatives at the US embassy in Bogotá, which in turn was in contact with Washington.

The United Fruit Company’s actions in Colombia was far from an isolated incident. US Marine Corps General Smedley Butler would write a book regarding his personal, first-hand experience in fighting wars on multiple continents for oil companies, bankers, and fruit companies.

Nearly a century ago large corporate interests already possessed full control over the mechanisms of American governance, determining its domestic and foreign policy, and readily using the nation’s military might for their own personal gain across the globe.

Mistrial Declared In Menendez Corruption Trial, As Jury Deadlocks

A mistrial was declared in the bribery, conspiracy and fraud trial of Senator Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey), as the 12-person jury deadlocked on all 18 counts against the Senator and his co-defendant following the 11-week trial.

Newark, New Jersey US District Court Judge William H. Walls declared a mistrial Thursday following a 15-hour jury deliberation. Federal prosecutors have not stated whether or not they will retry Menendez, 63, and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, 63, a wealthy Florida eye doctor and friend of Menendez, on federal charges of bribery, conspiracy and fraud that were brought against them in the case, the North Jersey Media Group reported.
