Putin’s Grand Bargain to Israel: Can Israel Digest It?

Israel has now had a taste of President Putin’s ‘stick’: Your air superiority in the North has just been punctured by the Syrian air defences. You, Israel, will lose it completely were our Russian S400s air defences to be enabled: ‘Think it over’.

Last week saw the first ‘game changer’ that almost plunged the region into war: the downing of one of Israel’s most sophisticated aircraft – an F16i by Syrian air defense.

As Ronen Bergman wrote in the New York Times: “Israel will no longer be able to act in Syria without limitations”; and secondly, “if anyone was not yet aware of it, Russia is the dominant power in the region”.

Florida governor proposes new gun sale limits after school shooting

PARKLAND: Florida Governor Rick Scott, a loyal ally of the U.S. gun lobby under mounting pressure to act in the aftermath of last week’s deadly mass shooting, urged state lawmakers on Friday to tighten access to firearms for young people and the mentally disturbed.

Pentagon makes recommendations to White House on transgender individuals

WASHINGTON: US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has made his recommendations to the White House on transgender individuals serving in the military, the Pentagon said on Friday, after President Donald Trump’s call last year for a ban on such service.

Second person accuses CNN of trying to direct the narrative at gun town hall

The father of a survivor of last week's school shooting in Parkland, Fla., said Thursday night that a CNN producer “insinuated” to him that the network was looking for people to interview that would “espouse a certain narrative."

Andrew Klein, whose daughter survived the school shooting, told Laura Ingraham on Fox News Thursday that he spoke to a CNN producer the day after the shooting, Feb. 15., and he took away from the conversation that they wanted to interview people that wanted to talk about the “policy implications of what happened in terms of preventing future mass shootings.”

McMaster Of War

A number of military experts – including the defense secretary, James Mattis – have warned that a U.S. war against North Korea would be hard, incredibly destructive and bloody, with civilian casualties in the millions, and could go badly for U.S. forces. But Lt. Gen. Herbert Raymond McMaster, President Trump’s national security adviser, is apparently insistent that ‘a military strike be considered as a serious option’.

One of Gen. McMaster’s claims to fame is a Silver Star he was awarded for a tank ‘battle’ he led in the desert during the so-called Gulf War of 1991. As a young captain leading a troop with nine new Abrams M1A1 battle tanks, McMaster destroyed 28 Iraqi tanks in 23 minutes without losing any of his own or suffering any casualties.

McMaster also fought in the Iraq War of the following decade.>>>>

Obama - CIA Manchurian Candidate Groomed by Communists to Destroy America

Former FBI Weatherman Task Force supervisor, Max Noel, noted that the FBI utilized a CARL test when it conducted background checks on various suspects. The acronym CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty is used to assess candidates fitness to hold the highest office in the country. On each of these four points of power, Obama fails and fails miserably. Like many FBI law enforcement agents and officials, Noel was alarmed by the fact that someone like Barack Obama could capture the presidency. For some unexplained reason, Obama was never vetted before he became a candidate for the presidency by the FBI. This is an unacceptable result of our national security system and is wholly suggestive of internal plot to allow the installation of a blatantly communist advocate into the highest political position in America.

Judicial Watch Lead Investigator: Pay Attention to Obama DHS Advisor Lisa Monaco – Deep State Link

If you want to really focus on Obama administration targeting of the Trump campaign, the transition and the administration, I think people should sets their sights on Lisa Monaco. She was the Trump (he meant Obama) administration Homeland Security Director and she appears in the notes and calendar of Andy McCabe in May of 2016. And if you note back a couple weeks you’ll note that there was a text from (Lisa) Page saying that Andy McCabe and Strzok, her boyfriend, saying that the White House wanted to know everything that they were doing. And so you see this contact in May and then in August you see the counter-intelligence operation that opened on the Trump campaign gets a nickname. They call it ‘latitude’ and it’s tied back apparently to Lisa Monaco who today has escaped any media inquiry or scrutiny.

Mysterious media blackout ordered at Obama event in Boston

The left often condemns President Trump’s frequent attacks on the mainstream media, but an event attended by former president Barack Obama on Friday is being shrouded in secrecy, with the media and attendees being ordered to not report a word of what takes place during the “conversation with Obama.”

The Boston Globe reported Friday that Obama is scheduled to participate in a Sports Analytics Conference hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, where he will reportedly “discuss his time in office and the next chapter of his life.” But sharing or reporting on the contents of the event is strictly forbidden.

An e-mail sent to those heading to the venue for the “conversation with Obama” reads like a line from the movie “Fight Club”: The first rule of seeing the former commander-in-chief is don’t talk about seeing the former-commander-in-chief.

The Crumbling Holocaust: an Israeli Perspective

Holocaust indoctrination has spread widely beyond Israel’s border, Ilani posits. “In America, as in many other parts of the world, children in recent decades have learned about the Holocaust from an early age. It’s basically perceived as the formative event of the modern era, against which the central political values of our age were shaped.” Sarcastically he adds, “suffice it to try to imagine how people reviled their political adversaries a century ago, when the words ‘Nazi’ or ‘fascist’ still had no meaning.”

McMaster, Kelly On Their Way Out?

Longstanding tensions within the Oval Office have reportedly reached a breaking point, as friction between President Trump and two top advisers may soon result in yet another split within the White House. Both National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and Chief of Staff John Kelly, both military men, are reportedly close to quitting or being fired - depending on whether you're reading CNN or Reuters.

The two are reportedly livid over Trump's treatment of them in public and private - as well as efforts by Trump and his associates to circumvent security measures designed to keep uncleared individuals from accessing classified information, such as Presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner - who enjoys reading the president's daily intelligence briefing.

“There have been running battles between Trump and his generals,” said one of the officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity. Kelly is a retired Marine general and McMaster an Army lieutenant general.

A Crisis in Intelligence: Unthinkable Consequences of Outsourcing U.S. Intel

Decades ago, philosopher Marshall McLuhan predicted a future world war fought using information. While World War I and World War II were waged using armies and mobilized economies, “World War III [will be] a guerrilla information war with no division between military and civilian participation,” McLuhan said, a prophecy included in his 1970 book of reflections, Culture Is Our Business.

We are now seeing this information war play out in real time. Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s indictment on Friday of 13 Russian nationals who allegedly attempted to “sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election” can be seen as the culmination of the intelligence community’s efforts to ferret out trolls engaging in “Information Operations” against the United States. But in some cases, this may be the product of the West’s own Information Operations – often utilizing private “intelligence” companies, or “spies for hire.”

Iran and India Are a Match Made in Heaven, And US Threats Won't Stop Them

Don’t tell the Iran hawks in D.C., isolating Iran won’t work.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani met with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi last week and the two signed a multitude of agreements.

The most important of which is India’s leasing of part of the Iranian port of Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman. This deal further strengthens India’s ability to access central Asian markets while bypassing the Pakistani port at Gwadar, now under renovation by China as part of CPEC – China Pakistan Economic Corridor.

How Italy could QUIT the Euro: ‘Election winners will CONFRONT EU’ MEP warns

European leaders are anxiously watching the polls as Italians gear up to cast their votes on March 4, amid fears eurosceptic parties will seize power.

Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party and the Five Star Movement look to be in the ascendency and both have huge reservations about the Eurozone project.

And German MEP Bernd Kölmel said the single currency was now under severe threat.

He said: "The election winners will confront the EU with the fact that they no longer want the existing euro.

Italian election: How Brexit-fan Matteo Salvini is on course to be EU’s next NIGHTMARE

The leader of the right-wing League said he will fight Brussels to make sure “Italians come first” should he become Italy’s next Prime Minister in the March 4 Italian general election.

The party leader, dubbed the “Italian Farage” could become one of the most dangerous politicians within the Union, as he has threatened the bloc to withdraw Italy’s funds and even trigger an “Italexit” if his demands for Italy aren't greeted.

Focusing his electoral campaign on fighting illegal immigration and protecting Italy from the EU’s “unfair” financial laws, he has often criticised both Eurocrats’ calls for greater integration and the euro, which he renamed “a German currency”.

He has often claimed that the regulations imposed by the European Union are damaging Italian industries and the Italian economy

ECB accuses Trump of sending euro soaring to squeeze stock exchanges

Minutes from a policy meeting in January revealed the situation “required monitoring”, as it tries to ease an anti-euro uprising in Italy ahead of its crucial election next month.

The euro has been consistently rising against the dollar since Donald Trump became President, squeezing stock exchanges in Europe while Wall Street soars.

In its minutes, the ECB cited a joint pledge at the International Monetary Fund’s October meeting that all parties “will refrain from competitive devaluations, and will not target our exchange rates for competitive purposes”.

The minute could be seen as an accuse to US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who hinted at the possibility of the end of the “strong dollar” policy in Davos last month.

'Absurd' Jeremy Corbyn CANNOT ‘laugh off’ communist spy meeting, warns ex-MI6 chief

It is “absurd” for Mr Corbyn to suggest he thought a Czechoslovakian agent was just a diplomat when he agreed to meet him, former MI6 boss Sir Richard Dearlove has claimed.

Sir Richard, who was the head of the Secret Intelligence Service from 1999 to 2004, also said that Mr Corbyn should have taken care to avoid the agent.

The ex-MI6 head said that said that holding only a couple of meetings with Jan Sarkocy would amount to "stupidity" on the part of Mr Corbyn.

However, he added that if the spy's claims that many more meetings took place were true then "this affair takes on a completely different aspect".

Lavrov: West wants regime-change in Syria, not an end to the war

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday that the West would rather see regime-change in Syria then a peaceful conclusion to war.

"A combination of factors makes us think, that the aim of those who want to pass this resolution (on the situation in Eastern Ghouta and humanitarian pause) now without taking into regard our essential amendments, is not to help the civilians, but to shift the focus in the Syrian issue from the need to urgently launch the Geneva talks basing on success of the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Syria, to demonize the Syrian government in order to advance the so-called Plan B to overthrow the regime (of President Bashar Assad) in violation of UN Security Council resolution 2254," Lavrov said.

Brawl on TV - Expert doesn't believe Ukrainian army is killing children in Donbass

On 22 February, TV show anchor Andrei Norkin got into a fight with Ukrainian political scientist Dmitry Suvorov, during a discussion of the situation in Donbass.

The argument began when an invited guest, German deputy Andreas Maurer, who speaks fluent Russian, said that the Ukrainian army is shelling civilians in the Donbass and they [Ukraine] must admit this."

"Your army is killing children! I stood next to the monument for 200 dead children!" - said Maurer.

The Ukrainian expert became very vocal in expressing indignation and demanding proof - "show me photographs!" he yelled.

Norkin tried to calm him down by tapping his shoulder, after which a fight ensued.

British-Iranian prisoner’s release depends on £400mn arms deal debt row, claims husband

Imprisoned British-Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s release depends on the UK paying a £400 million ($765 million) arms deal debt it owes Iran, according to her husband Richard. The debt is thought to date back to the 1970s.
An Iranian Judge reportedly told Zaghari-Ratcliffe on Wednesday that her release was dependent on the UK paying the interest on the debt. Zaghari-Ratcliffe also claims the judge said the Iranian Foreign Ministry was in talks with the UK government.

“It’s the first time we've been told that it is linked to the dispute over the interest rate. But it is at least the second time an Iranian official has told Nazanin that her case is linked with the arms deal debt," Ratcliffe told the Telegraph.

“A sprawling, truly sprawling, meandering speech by the President. The likes of which – I was saying to Stephanie – I'm used to having heard from Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro or Erdogan,” Velshi said, after Trump wrapped up the speech Friday morning. “President Putin gives something like this every year, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used to give speeches like this.”

France-Egypt Plane Deal Blocked by US, Fearing Spread of Missile Tech - Official

The US has blocked Franco-Egyptian negotiations on the sale of additional Rafale fighter jets to the Egyptian Air Force by refusing to export an American component aboard the Scalp cruise missile, French outlet La Tribune reported.

Alexandre Vautravers, an official at the Geneva Center for Security Policy (GCSP), discussed with Sputnik the impact of US companies being in the chain of contractors on European military suppliers.

"It would be great if France's manufacturing industry could produce entirely French products, but we should take into account the development cost of each component in a complicated missile like Scalp. What if no country can afford purchasing these missiles," Vautravers said.

FBI Tipster Transcript Leaked: Cruz Will "Get Into A School And Shoot The Place Up": Full Text

Amid public demands for transparency, the Broward Police have released the full list of 23 calls for service to the home of attacker Nikolas Cruz, in a desperate bid to deflect criticism over handling the Parkland school shooting. The final call, however, just like the transcript from the January 5 call discussed below, shows that serious concerns were not acted on.

“In the interest of full transparency, we are making available the list of all 23 calls for service at the Cruz home,” the sheriff’s office said in a Friday tweet. “18 involved Nikolas Cruz. None appeared arrestable under Florida law. However, two of the calls remain under internal investigation.”

LA Has Criminalized Poverty By Making It Illegal To Sleep In Cars And RVs

Raising rent prices and low wages have resulted in thousands of people across the city of Los Angeles becoming homeless, many of them now living in cars and RVs if they were able to keep it together that well.

According to the most recent counts by the KPCC, there are at least 7,000 people live in their cars in Los Angeles.

Many of these people still maintain jobs and try to live the most fulfilled lives that they can, but they are constantly facing problems from authorities.

It is such a common issue that many churches have opened up their parking lots to people living out of their cars. For example, the New Beginnings Counseling Center opened up their parking lot for a “Safe Parking program,” which was intended to provide a safe and welcome parking place for people living out of their cars. Unfortunately, under new legislation passed in Los Angeles, programs like this will be illegal, because sleeping in cars and RVs have been entirely outlawed.

The head of the NRA defines his new enemies: The ‘violent left’ and judges who ‘do violence’ to the Constitution

For those wondering how the organization would respond to this new era in which there was no tangible political opposition to push off of, LaPierre answered the question in his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday. The new enemy? A nebulous and vastly overstated violent left, working in partnership with the “left-wing media” and a judiciary that does “violence to the Constitution’s separation of powers” by opposing President Trump’s executive orders.

That argument was previewed with a video the organization released Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am putting this article up, because I saw a complete travesty of what Wayne La Pierre had to say at CPAC at Haaretz this morning, and felt that all of our readers should see this version, versus the version which came from an actual transcript of the speech.

La Pierre Identified the Enemies of his Organisation - and of America, as Jews

The Haaretz smear begins with the following statements:

"LaPierre vowed that the NRA intends to go far beyond its role as a gun lobby, to warn Americans that all of their individual freedoms are being destroyed by a condescending intellectual elite. “I promise you this – the NRA will not only speak out, the NRA will speak out louder and we will speak out stronger than ever before,” with its own television station and expanded media operations to resist “the Socialist corruption of our government.”

Yes, that was stated in his speech; but Haaretz goes on to insinuate and elaborate that La Pierre had said things he did not.

Haaretz continues: "Again and again in his speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland, LaPierre identified the enemies of the NRA, and of America, as Jews – from Karl Marx to Bernie Sanders, from George Soros to former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg.

LaPierre singled out Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York as one of the Democrats who are “liars to the core.”

To the best of my read of this article, only two Jewish people were named; they were Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, whose city has become ungovernable because of the monstrous crime wave there and George Soros, the billionaire pushing unrestricted immigration from the Middle East and Africa upon Europe, which has produced ghastly results for the countries of Europe and their born citizens.

Were these men criticised because of their religion?!? Absolutely not. Were they criticised for what they had done, and their philosophical and political stances? Yes, which is a completely reasonable, and non-religion- bashing thing to do. Again, look at the two takes on La Pierre's address to CPAC, and decide for yourselves.

And what I thought was hysterically ironic was, that the dailystormer, a very vireulently ultra-right blog, ran with the Haaretz story as though it was absolutely correct.

Fearmongering by any side, needs to be met with cold hard facts, which I believe La Pierre delivered.

So who is the real fearmonger here, La Pierre... or the editors of Haaretz who concocted this codswallop?!?

"There Was A Mistake Made" - FBI's No. 2 Refuses To Provide Details On How Cruz Tips Were Fumbled

After admitting last week that "protocol was not followed" when at least two individuals called the FBI's anonymous tip line to warn that Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old suspected of murdering 17 of his former classmates, the No. 2 FBI official said Thursday that he had visited the FBI's call center this week as part of his review of why the tip wasn't followed.

He also addressed, in the most detail yet, the mounting criticisms facing the bureau, according to the Washington Post.

The remarks followed NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch's assertion that the FBI was primarily to blame for not preventing the shooting.

Shortly before Bowdich spoke Thursday, NRA chief executive Wayne LaPierre, who was speaking at the same event, said the FBI's leaders had gone "rogue."

Iran Threatens To Abandon Nuclear Deal If Western Banks Don't Start Doing Business

Iran says it will withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal if big banks continue to avoid doing business with the Islamic republic, deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi said on Thursday, speaking from London.

The Islamic Republic agreed to restrict its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of crippling sanctions by the United States, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia.

Following the deal, however, major banks have continued to avoid doing business with Iran for fear of violating remaining U.S. sanctions - which Iran says has hampered their efforts to rebuild foreign trade and attract investment.

How China Could Freeze The US Military

Trump said:

I was sitting at the table. We had finished dinner. We are now having dessert. And we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you have ever seen. And President Xi was enjoying it. And I was given the message from the generals that the ships are locked and loaded. What do you do? And we made a determination to do it. So the missiles were on the way. And I said: ‘Mr. President, let me explain something to you… we’ve just launched 59 missiles… heading toward Syria and I want you to know that.’

When asked how President Xi responded, Trump claimed: “He paused for 10 seconds and then he asked the interpreter to please say it again.”

The timing of the attack was meant to intimidate Xi and send China a message.

You see, China and Syria are allies. The Chinese give Assad’s government diplomatic, military, and economic support. China has also used its veto power at the UN several times to support Syria.

Trump Warns World Of "Very, Very Unfortunate Phase 2" If North Korean Sanctions Fail

If you weren't paying attention, you might have missed it; but during today's joint press conference with Aussie PM Turnbull, US President Trump let slip a brief comment that the rest of the world should likely be paying close attention to.

After unveiling the "heaviest sanctions ever imposed on a country before" against North Korea earlier in the day, President Trump told the gathered media that the US will go to "Phase 2" if those sanctions do not have the desired effects of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.

As Reuters reports, in addressing what the Trump administration calls its biggest national security challenge, the U.S. Treasury sanctioned one person, 27 companies and 28 ships, according to a statement on the U.S. Treasury Department’s website.

The United States also proposed a list of entities to be blacklisted under separate United Nations sanctions, a move “aimed at shutting down North Korea’s illicit maritime smuggling activities to obtain oil and sell coal.”

'Resist' This!

Perhaps because a weary public was underwhelmed by his indictment last week of thirteen ham sandwiches with Russian dressing, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has returned to an old baloney sandwich with American cheese named Paul Manafort, and slathered on some extra mayonnaise to lubricate his journey to federal prison.

The additional charges specify tax evasion and money-laundering shenanigans around Manafort’s activities in Ukraine between 2006 and 2015, a period that included the USA’s active participation in the overthrow of Ukraine’s elected president, Victor Yanukovych, who had declared a desire to join the Russian Customs Union instead of being shanghaied into an expanded NATO.

“I Haven’t Eaten Meat In 2 Months” – Venezuelan Oil Workers Are Collapsing From Hunger On The Job

Those who are unfamiliar with Venezuela’s unprecedented economic collapse might be surprised to learn that the country’s oil production has only slowed, even as the price of a barrel of crude has risen in most international markets.

Unsurprisingly (it’s Venezuela), there’s a macabre explanation for this phenomenon: The workers at PDVSA – Venezuela’s state-owned oil company, which once showered Venezuelans with oil wealth – are literally collapsing due to hunger and exhaustion as workers defy their government handlers and flee their jobs in their desperation as the value of their pay has been completely erased.

Bloomberg spoke with several workers in Venezuela’s oil industry about the harsh conditions they face on a daily basis.

Of course, oil workers aren’t the only ones suffering: The situation in Venezuela is getting so dire that ordinary Venezuelans are losing tons of body weight because of the food shortages. Many can no longer afford to buy meat.

Palestinian Man Dies After Israeli Troops Beat and Kick Him

A Palestinian died while being arrested by Israeli soldiers Thursday night, with security camera footage capturing his beating at their hands.

Security cameras captured video of Israeli Defense Force soldiers kicking and beating a Palestinian identified as Yassin al-Saradih repeatedly; medical examiners later pronounced him dead. Al-Saradih is from Jericho, a city in the West Bank, where he died.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society, Saradih, 36, died shortly after the beating. The organization said he sustained multiple seizures while IDF troops fired heavy amounts of tear gas into a crowd he was in prior to his arrest and death.

Eastern Ghouta is one of Syrian de-escalation zones, established during the Astana talks, with Russia, Iran and Turkey serving as guarantors of the agreements.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the Syrian capital of Damascus and its suburbs subjects to shelling by insurgents.

Trump Sets Deadly Precedent by Hiding Rationale for Bombing Syria

Pressure is mounting as the Trump administration continues to refuse to reveal its legal justification for bombing Syria in April 2017, despite increased scrutiny from Democratic senators and a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) wrote a letter to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on February 8, 2018, requesting a copy of the State Department memo containing the Trump administration's legal justification for the US attack against Syria on April 6, 2017, when it bombed the Shayrat military airbase with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles.

At the time of the bombing, Trump suggested that he ordered the launching of the missiles in retaliation for a sarin gas attack at Khan Sheikhoun, allegedly ordered by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Louisiana Student Searched, Investigated, for Writing Math Symbol Resembling Gun

This week, police launched an investigation into a terrorist threat allegation at a Louisiana high school after a student drew a square root symbol on a math problem that another student claimed looked like a gun.

According to the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office, detectives began investigating terrorism threats at Oberlin High School after a student completed a math problem that required the square root sign to be drawn. When other students began commenting that the math symbol looked like a gun and a poorly judged quip was made between students, an investigation was quickly launched. A rumor that the student was planning to carry out a mass shooting at the school also surfaced.

A square root sign is a weapon of math destruction!
