Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions – The Final Demise Of The Dollar Hegemony?

Sanctions left and sanctions right. Financial mostly, taxes, tariffs, visas, travel bans – confiscation of foreign assets, import and export prohibitions and limitations; and also punishing those who do not respect sanctions dished out by Trump, alias the US of A, against friends of their enemies. The absurdity seems endless and escalating – exponentially, as if there was a deadline to collapse the world. Looks like a last-ditch effort to bring down international trade in favor of — what? – Make America Great Again? – Prepare for US mid-term elections? – Rally the people behind an illusion? – Or what?

If You Want to Survive this Election with Your Mental Health Intact, Turn Off the “News” and Social Media Now

If you want to preserve your sanity and avoid unhappy derangement, turn off all corporate and social media from now to Thanksgiving. -- Since elections are extremely profitable for traditional media / social media corporations, your sanity will gleefully be sacrificed in the upcoming election–if you are gullible enough to watch the “news” and tune into social media. Elections are extremely profitable because candidates spend scads of cash on media adverts. -- The greater the discord and derangement, the higher the media profits. The more outraged you let yourself become, the more time you spend online, generating insane profits for the corporations that own whatever platforms you’re addicted to.

Facebook 'censors' conservative education page, says it was a mistake, but few are convinced

Facebook says it had mistakenly deleted videos and limited the reach of US conservative educational organization PragerU. The content has now been restored, but PragerU supporters don't think it was an accident.

PragerU (short for Prager University, after its founder Dennis Prager) says nine of its posts reached none of its three million-odd followers, and at least two videos were deleted for "hate speech," in what many conservatives see as part of Facebook's ongoing censorship campaign. Facebook has now apologized and restored the content, but has offered no explanation beyond "we're looking into it."

Censorship Is What Happens When Powerful People Get Scared

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

CONSPIRACY THEORISTS PROVEN RIGHT AS TSA BODY SCANNERS ROLLED OUT AT SUBWAY STATIONS

For years, those who have been paying attention to the ever-expanding police state that is the United States, have been warning of the slippery slope of TSA expansion. For years, these same people warned that TSA would soon be present at bus stations, malls, and subways. And now, this has begun to happen.

Indeed, the Free Thought Project predicted this years ago when several U.S. senators from both sides of the aisle expressed their desire to make travelers lives’ a veritable hell of red tape and insidious surveillance by increasing putative ‘security’ for rail lines, highways, and marine routes by adding presence and screening procedures at Megabus depots, Amtrak stations, and more. Now, it is finally here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately for us living in Hawaii, it is darn near impossible to get from one place to another without flying, and dealing with the whims of TSA's"Grope-Nazis."

But for those of you who can manage it on the mainland, just do not use public transportation any more than you have to. I know this can be tough at times, but the less I have to deal with intrusive pat-downs (to which the "Elites" of this country rarely have to submit), the happier I am.

TRUMP: "SOCIAL MEDIA IS TOTALLY DISCRIMINATING AGAINST CONSERVATIVE VOICES"

Following the crackdown against Alex Jones and various other pundits on Twitter and other social media outlets, on Saturday morning President Trump joined the big tech censorship debate, and accused social media of "totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices", claiming that the Trump administration "won't let that happen", and arguing that the platforms should allow both "good and bad" content online amid an escalating debate over social media’s growing censorship and role in policing content online.

"Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others," Trump tweeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist Activist, I have no patience for people advocating death, even for people whose life track record (in this case, that of Senator Mc Cain, who has never encountered any potential war he didn't love) has been one of creating misery for third world people who were simply "in the way" of resources the US wanted or wants to expropriate.

I thoroughly believe in documenting the truth as I see it; then letting people decide where they stand on the issue.

That is what, I believe, a true journalist does, even if it is on a blog, like this one.

This is also why I refuse to be silent on the US enabling of Saudi war crimes in Yemen, as well as other war crimes, such as those committed against Palestinians by the Israelis.

In reading what Johnstone wrote, I feel that she should have documented the specific acts in which McCain engaged, in terms of his support for these endless, unrelenting wars for resources, rather than advocating for his death; but should Twitter have electronically shunned her for this, when there is much more objectionable content in many of the tweets which are allowed to go forward?!?

FEDS ASK COURT TO FORCE FACEBOOK TO BREAK MESSENGER'S END-TO-END VOICE ENCRYPTION FOR MS-13 GANG PROBE

In secret court proceedings, the U.S. government is trying to force Facebook to help wiretap Messenger. Facebook has declined, so the Justice Department is asking a judge for an order of contempt.

From the Reuters story:

The U.S. government is trying to force Facebook Inc (FB.O) to break the encryption in its popular Messenger app so law enforcement may listen to a suspect’s voice conversations in a criminal probe, three people briefed on the case said, resurrecting the issue of whether companies can be compelled to alter their products to enable surveillance.

The previously unreported case in a federal court in California is proceeding under seal, so no filings are publicly available, but the three people told Reuters that Facebook is contesting the U.S. Department of Justice’s demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is surprising to me here, is that the Department of Justice, for all the money thrown at it annually, to keep its communications capabilities current, has no better tools for surveillance here other than Facebook Messenger; and my question here is, why?!?

WATCH: COP DENIED IMMUNITY FOR KILLING UNARMED NAKED VETERAN SUFFERING FROM PTSD

Instead of reaching for his pepper spray or his Taser, a DeKalb County police officer drew his gun and killed an unarmed veteran suffering from bipolar and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Charged with felony murder and several other charges on in 2016, the officer claims the unarmed veteran was aggressively charging towards him even though witnesses dispute his “official” version of events. Now, a judge has ruled that the former cop is not entitled to immunity based on the self-defense claim.

Lawyers for Robert Olsen had argued he had the right to act in self-defense and that the charges against him should be dropped.

As FOX 5 reports, DeKalb County Superior Court Judge J.P. Boulee wrote in an order Tuesday that Olsen didn’t show he had reason to believe deadly force was needed to prevent death or serious injury to himself or someone else. The judge cited concerns about Olsen’s credibility and conflicting testimony.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on this judge for this decision.

Unfortunately, these wars of conquest have left many of our military in a compromised mental and emotional state, and the concoction of drugs they have been given, haven't helped much at all.

When our Vets are having adverse reactions to the drugs they have been given, they need IMMEDIATE evaluations, and should not have to wait for weeks for them to be "fit in" to the VA's schedule.

From the latest statistics, we understand the following:

VA reveals its veteran suicide statistic included active duty troops also

The article goes on to state:

"The VA released its newest National Suicide Data Report on Monday, which includes data from 2005 through 2015. Much in the report remained unchanged from two years ago, when the VA reported suicide statistics through 2014. Veteran suicide rates are still higher than the rest of the population, particularly among women.

In both reports, the VA said an average of 20 veterans succumbed to suicide every day. In its newest version, the VA was more specific."

This figure is horrifically alarming, particularly for anyone who has family or friends in our military.

WE'RE ALL LAB RATS IN THE LARGEST-EVER MONETARY EXPERIMENT IN HUMAN HISTORY

There are ample warning signs that another serious financial crisis is on the way.

These warning signs are being soundly ignored by the majority, though. Perhaps understandably so.

After 10 years of near-constant central bank interventions to prop up markets and make stocks, bonds and real estate rise in price -- while also simultaneously hammering commodities to mask the inflationary impact of their money printing from the masses -- it’s difficult to imagine that “they” will allow markets to ever fall again.

This is known as the “central bank put”: whenever the markets begin to teeter, the central banks will step in to prop/nudge/cajole the markets back towards the “correct” direction, which is always: Up!

It’s easy in retrospect to see how the central banks have become caught in this trap of their own making, where they're now responsible for supporting all the markets all the time.

ISIS GIVEN ‘BREATHING SPACE’ IN PARTS OF SYRIA UNDER US-BACKED FORCES' CONTROL

Islamic State managed to regain access to Syrian oil fields and make profits from selling oil, a new UN report reveals. While the UN did not point fingers, the IS reemergence seems to occur in areas held by the US-backed forces.
“Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant [IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS], having been defeated militarily in Iraq and most of the Syrian Arab Republic during 2017, rallied in early 2018. This was the result of a loss of momentum by forces fighting it in the east of the Syrian Arab Republic,” the recent report from the UN Security Council’s Sanctions Monitoring Team reads. The document is dated July 27, but was only released to the public this week.

The slow-down gave IS “breathing space to prepare for the next phase of its evolution into a global covert network.” As of June 2018, the terrorist group has been controlling “small pockets of territory in the Syrian Arab Republic on the Iraqi border,” effectively carrying on with its quasi-state ways.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I singularly unsurprised at this development?!?

First Info Wars, And Now PragerU Has Found Itself Being Targeted For Censorship On Facebook

The Alex Jones controversy was never about Alex Jones.

One of the things that I and many others had warned the denizens of the internet about when it was announced that Jones had been deplatformed on a number of networks was that he was just the first. Jones was the toe in the hot tub, or the proverbial canary in the coalmine.

The left’s next censorship move may already be upon us, as the conservative education video channel PragerU has noticed some odd things happening to their channel on Facebook, and by “odd” I mean blatant censorship.

A Snapshot of the Internet Kill Switch in 2018

The crisis of Internet censorship in the West is unfolding now and just now coming into view. It appears that government agencies are heavily influencing these policies, along with monolithic tech companies who are now demonstrating the willingness to allow the political beliefs of executives to influence the business services they provide. Given that these are businesses, it stands to reason that it won’t be long before these companies suffer substantial backlash for crossing the line into censorship and thought control.

Activist Kicks Off Effort to End Enforcement of Gun Control in Oregon County

The federal government relies heavily on state cooperation to implement and enforce almost all of its laws, regulations and acts – including gun control. By simply withdrawing this necessary cooperation, states and localities can nullify in effect many federal actions. As noted by the National Governor’s Association during the partial government shutdown of 2013, “states are partners with the federal government on most federal programs.”

Censorship is the New Front in the War on Consciousness

When a group of people gets together and conspires to deliberately restrict access to points-of-view, opinions, ideas, personalities and information, then those people are engaged in a struggle to control other’s perception of the world. -- Their aim is to control awareness of the diversity of possibilities in how the world is perceived. To shut down imagination. -- To control your consciousness of the world we all share.

From Boston To Ferguson To Charlottesville: The Evolution Of A Police State Lockdown

Five years ago, the city of Boston was locked down while police carried out a military-style manhunt for suspects in the 2013 Boston Marathon explosion.

Four years ago, the city of Ferguson, Missouri, was locked down, with government officials deploying a massive SWAT team, an armored personnel carrier, men in camouflage pointing heavy artillery at the crowd, smoke bombs and tear gas to quell citizen unrest over a police shooting of a young, unarmed black man.

Three years ago, the city of Baltimore was put under a military-enforced lockdown after civil unrest over police brutality erupted into rioting. More than 1,500 national guard troops were deployed while residents were ordered to stay inside their homes and put under a 10 pm curfew.

Twitter Promptly Suspends Tesla Whistleblower Following Tweets About His Former Employer

Earlier tonight, Tripp took to his personal Twitter and began posting photos that he claims help back up some of the assertions that Tesla has denied. “Are you ready,” he asked his followers and proceeded to upload photos of what he claimed to be improperly handled cooling tubes, proof of damaged battery cells being reworked and installed in cars that were sold, and graphics about a high volume of scrap waste. Tripp made many other allegations but what might be his most jaw-dropping disclosure was a listing of Teslas that he claims were sold with “punctured / dented / damaged” batteries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, according to Twitter, you need permission to be a whistle-blower from the party you are blowing the whistle on!

Has YOUR Twitter account been affected? Social media site continues to cull users in a bid to clean up the platform

Twitter has started banning a huge amount of accounts, with many users taking to the site to bemoan the loss of hundreds of followers in a single day.

The cull started yesterday and had such an impact on numbers that the 'Twitterverse' was swept with the hashtag #TwitterPurge.

The firm is ruthlessly removing accounts, with those who have been previously suspended or banned most likely to see their account deactivated.

Modern Censorship Is Voluntary

Censorship is an enormous problem that the internet temporarily freed us from. Now we’re seeing the State leverage the tech giants to once again control the flow of information. All of us that are aware of this problem have the solution in our hands. Instead of worrying about it and complaining about it we should migrate off the websites that are being used as blinders and discover new platforms that are building a business around privacy and openness. These tools are available and the more quickly we all migrate to them the move value we will all receive from them. It’s time we all did our part. Just be prepared to read, see and hear ideas that one might not like.

Turkey Stocks, Lira Slide After Mnuchin Threatens More Sanctions

The Lira and Turkish stocks are sliding notably after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin warned that Washington is preparing more sanctions for Turkey due to the lack of progress on the release of Pastor Brunson.

Following a Turkish court's refusal yesterday to release American pastor Andrew Brunson, Mnuchin warned at a White House cabinet meeting today that U.S. has more sanctions prepared for Turkey if Brunson isn't quickly released.

Additionally, as Bloomberg reports, President Donald Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House on Thursday that Turkey hasn’t turned out to be a great friend to the U.S., and he complained that his administration secured the release of a Turkish citizen from an unnamed country on Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s behalf.

“We got somebody out for him,” Trump said, from “some place,” but Turkey continues to hold pastor Andrew Brunson. It’s “not right” and a “terrible thing,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I might suggest that Turkey's Edrogan back down here; if economic destabilization does not work, look for DC to try something more drastic.

Matt Taibbi Warns Censorship Does Not End Well

After Trump’s shocking win in 2016, everyone turned to Facebook and Google to fix “fake news.” But nobody had a coherent definition of what constitutes it.

Many on the left lamented the Wikileaks releases of Democratic Party emails, but those documents were real news, and the complaint there was more about the motives of sources, and editorial emphasis, rather than accuracy.

When Google announced it was tightening its algorithm to push “more authoritative content” last April, it defined “fake news” as “…blatantly misleading, low quality, offensive or downright false information.”

...

It isn’t clear, but within short order, a whole range of alternative sites (from Alternet to Truthdig to the World Socialist Website) started complaining about significant drops in traffic, apparently thanks to changed search processes.

Pompeo Forms "Iran Action Group" To Coordinate All Iran Strategy, Reports Directly To White House

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Thursday that the United States has formed an "Iran Action Group" within the State Department to guide Washington's post-nuclear deal policy. The group will coordinate all activity and policy related to Iran, including inter-agency initiatives after President Trump withdrew the US from the 2015 nuclear deal in May.

Pompeo told reporters the action group would be "directing, reviewing and coordinating all aspects of the State Department's Iran-related activity."

It is to be headed by current State Department director of policy planning Brian Hook, who will in turn report directly to Pompeo. Hook has been a lead negotiator attempting to pressure European allies to significantly alter prior commitments related to the international deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for the brilliantly coordinated demonization propaganda to start rolling out of the White House, Pentagon, State Department in huge fertilizer tubs soon, most probably after the Labor Day holiday.

What the hell has Iran actually done to deserve so much attention from the US government?!?!?

The short answer is, absolutely nothing; but of course, that will not be good enough for Israel, which wants to see Iran regime changed and balkanized.

But of course, Israel is ordering these actions from the US government only at the costs.... of American blood and American money.

Chinese bombers likely training for US strikes: Pentagon

Chinese bombers are likely training for strikes against US and allied targets in the Pacific, according to a new Pentagon report that also details how Beijing is transforming its ground forces to "fight and win."

The annual report to Congress, released Thursday, highlights China's growing military, economic and diplomatic clout and how Beijing is leveraging this to rapidly build its international footprint and establish regional dominance.

In the case of China's air power, the report states that Chinese bombers are developing capabilities to hit targets as far from China as possible.

"Over the last three years, the PLA (People's Liberation Army) has rapidly expanded its overwater bomber operating areas, gaining experience in critical maritime regions and likely training for strikes against US and allied targets," the document states, noting how China is pushing its operations out into the Pacific.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And of course, the US military is planning no such strikes against China or her allies in the Pacific?!?

Are we to congratulate the Pentagon for its magnificent grasp of the obvious?!?

Jonathan Tracy: Free speech or 'no platform'? - a classicist's plea

As a humanities lecturer in classical studies at Massey University, I am disturbed by the recent push toward censorship – or, in the current euphemism, "no-platforming" or "de-platforming" – of dissenting viewpoints, both at Massey and in New Zealand and the Western world as a whole.

This illiberal trend is a betrayal of the heritage of free thought, inquiry, speech, and debate bequeathed to us from the ancient world. According to the Roman historian Tacitus, the key distinguishing feature of life under good emperors – as opposed to bad, tyrannical emperors – is that a good emperor leaves you "free to think what you like and to say what you think".

Detroit Democrat Bettie Cook Scott on Her Asian Opponent: “Don’t Vote for the Ching-Chong”

Democrat Bettie Cook Scott stood outside the polling stations on Tuesday and urged voters not to cast a ballot for her Asian opponent.
Scott told the voters, “Don’t vote for ching-chang!” and don’t vote for “ching-chong.”

The Metro Times reported:

More than a dozen community groups have called on Rep. Bettie Cook Scott (D-Detroit) to apologize for a series of racial slurs sources say she used to describe her primary election opponent, Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit).

Scott is alleged to have referred to Chang as “ching-chang” and “the ching-chong” to multiple voters outside polling precincts during last Tuesday’s election. She’s also said to have called one of Chang’s campaign volunteers an “immigrant,” saying “you don’t belong here” and “I want you out of my country.”

Chang and Scott were running in the Democratic primary for state Sen. District 1. Chang won the election with 49 percent of the vote; Scott came in third with 11 percent of the vote.

What a lovely gal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am appalled at this behaviour, on the part of Scott and her supporters.

Is THIS what the political process in this country has become, post the 2016 elections?!? Then God help us all!!

2015 United Nations Paper Proposed Government Licensing To “Supervise Content” Online

In recent purge, globalists are following long existing plans to censor internet.
In 2015, the Washington Post warned that the United Nations was attempting to “…transform the Web from a libertarian free-for-all to some kind of enforced social commons“.

The warning came in response to a UN report titled “Cyber Violence Against Women and Girls: A World-Wide Wake-up Call“.

The report was promptly withdrawn due to errors with “footnoting”.

Based on a campaign to promote “gender sensitive content” for women and prevent online harrassment and bullying, the report proposed a Chinese style system of government licensing.

Turkey Ready for War, Says Erdogan, US Involved in Financial Warfare against Turkey

According to the Islamist Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit quoted by Ahvalnews, President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an is ready for war.

“The secret to successful states is their readiness for war. We are ready with everything we have,” said Erdo?an on Monday in a meeting with ambassadors in Ankara.

According to reports, the US has instrumented a currency war targeted against the Turkish lira.

“Erdo?an’s comments come as the Turkish currency continues to slide against the U.S. dollar following Washington’s announcement of sanctions against Ankara this month”. Ahvalnews

The decline is indicated in the chart below (Bloomberg), from 4.85 Lira to the dollar on July 16 to approximately 5.94 Lira to the dollar on August 16.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Erdogan, a word, please: if one follows the injunction of Hammurabi's code, which advocated "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth", one winds up with a population which is blind and toothless.

So please, let's take a step back from the brink; you cannot get your NATO brothers to stand with you against the US; you do not have the resources
or wherewithal to fight the US militarily; so the only issue with which to "fight", if one can use that word, is economic.

And on that ground, you are losing, mightily.

I would respectfully suggest that Turkish and American ambassadors start speaking with each other, to ratchet down this war of words.

In the end, this posture on your part will only serve to cause the US government to attempt more destabilization against your country, possibly by inciting your Kurdish population to revolt; and if that were to happen, what would happen to your power base?!?

US to Send More Marines to Norway, Angering Russia

In a move Russian officials immediately labeled as “unfriendly,” the Norwegian Defense Ministry has announced that the US will be more than doubling the number of Marines stationed inside Norway, bringing yet more combat troops to Russia’s northern border.

Officially, the US says the troops are there only for “training purposes.” Initially this was presented as a chance for the Marines to learn how to ski, in the event they are at some point doing alpine conflict. Norway’s officials similarly say this is not intended to target Russia.

Yet the US has, for years, been adding more and more troops to countries all along Russia’s frontier, and these deployments to Norway are expected to last at least five years, a long time to learn how to ski if they don’t figure that might include skiing into Russia for a war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Uh.... to teach US marines skiing?!?

This doesn't pass the "smell test"; sorry, Pentagon.

'You Won't See Your Kids': Reza Aslan Reveals He Was Detained by Shin Bet at Israeli Border

Aslan posted on Twitter that Peter Beinart's expose of his detention by the Shin Bet while entering Israel has prompted him to tell his own detention story.

(THREAD) Peter’s experience has spurred me to share mine.

2 weeks ago, as I was crossing back into Israel from Jordan, I was separated from my family and detained by Shin Bet. “We can make it so you don’t see your kids for a long time” I was warned.

The Shin Bet lady, who already knew everything about me and my family’s journey around the world, began with “You think because you’re a public person I can’t do whatever I want with you?”

I was floored. This is how interrogations begin in police states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My dear Mr. Aslan, did you not understand that Israel has become one of the most Stazi-like nations on earth, and has devolved into an horrifically apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy with nuclear weapons?!?

How in the world could you NOT have known this?!?

But the question I would raise here, is... what else will you do with your new-found knowledge?!?

Most probably, if you want to keep your job, absolutely nothing; as we well understand, criticism of Israel, even for any absolutely legitimate reason, is the journalistic equivalent of swallowing the Koolaid.

Mike and I would love to see Israel, but because of the honest criticism we have leveled at the actions of its government against the Palestinians, even if we got to Ben Gurion Airport, we would most probably be beaten up within an inch of our lives, and turned back around.

Saudis Spinning the Optics of Dead Schoolchildren

Why do Americans help manage their PR? This week in particular, our role has been shameful.

It has been a trying couple of weeks for Saudi Arabia. First, a tweet from an account associated with the Saudi government appeared to threaten Canada with a 9/11-style attack if they continued to “stick their nose where it doesn’t belong.” The infographic within the tweet featured an Air Canada jet flying towards the Toronto skyline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the Saudis, with US "guidance" and mid-air refueling, bomb hospitals, schools, and school buses all the time in Yemen; in their minds, the assassination of innocent school children is utterly no big deal.

To paraphrase the American poet Gertrude Stein, "A genocide... is a genocide.. is a genocide.", pure and simple.

And with a genocide, you kill everyone you possibly can kill, right?!? Schoolkids, women, and the medically fragile elderly; all grist for the US-enabled Saudi death machine, right?!?

I don't know about you, but the cold, hard reality that the US government and military are enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen, troubles me very deeply.

Unfortunately, Mike and I are too broke, and too old, to take up residence in a country with the kind of moral compass which would never allow such a thing to happen.

And given that the Yemeni Houthi rebels have proven so resilient over the last 3 years, I have to wonder just why the B.O.Y. (AKA the Butcher of Yemen, AKA Saudi Arabia's Prince bin Salman) has not ordered a complete carpet bombing of the country; I am quite sure that his BFF, Amerika's Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump, would authorize Raytheon's selling him thousands more bombs in a heartbeat if he wanted them... with which to kill more school children; women, and the medically fragile elderly.

And we have a companion piece to this, also courtesy of antiwar.com:

Slain bus full of children raises questions about the US role in Yemen war

Looks for those questions to go completely unanswered by this administration, which very much believes in killing for profit, and by the mantra "War is good for business!!"

Taliban Overrun Another Afghan Military Base, Killing 45 Troops

For the second time this week, Taliban insurgents attacked and overran an Afghan Army base in the country’s north, this time in Baghlan Province. The offensive lasted about five hours, and left the Taliban in control of the military base and a nearby police checkpoint.

Starting before dawn, Taliban fighters quickly overwhelmed the police checkpoint, killing nine police, then moved on to the army base. They got to the base in Baghlan-e Markazi District and took that as well, killing another 36 troops.

Baghlan Governor Abdul Hai Nemati says that reinforcements have been sent to try to recapture the area. Checkpoints in the area were reportedly set on fire by the Taliban, however, so not everything can be recovered

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this administration, coupled with NATO, had two brain cells to rub together on this issue, they would immediately evacuate their troops in Afghanistan out of the country as quickly as was safely possible, negotiating with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the rights to the oil pipelines, rare earth minerals, and poppy production.

United States SAFE Act In The Making: Penned & Promoted By Andrew Cuomo

If Democrats do in fact take over Congress, after the November 2018 midterm elections, and if Andrew Cuomo is elected to a third term as Governor of New York, Cuomo will be taking his plans for a National New York Safe Act to a receptive Congress, where he will lead the pack to destroy the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Of that, there can be no doubt.

Economic Contagion? Central Banks Are The Real Culprit

It would appear that the only “contagion” is that of central banks; most of all the Federal Reserve. Yet, all we hear about in the mainstream is talk on the trade war and linchpins like Turkey. The public is being regaled with lies, conditioned to accept false explanations about the true cause of a crisis that is about to occur; a crisis which central bankers are deliberately engineering so that they can later promote the philosophy of "simplification" and one-world centralization as a cure-all.

REPORT SHOWS FDA MANIPULATING AND IGNORING SCIENCE ON KRATOM

In a detailed white paper released today, AKA scientists and attorneys claim, “The FDA has also misled the DEA, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) with incomplete, inaccurate, extrapolated, and distorted information on adverse events and deaths allegedly associated with the use of kratom to encourage unwarranted legislative and regulatory restrictions on kratom at the federal, state, and local government levels.

The most egregious examples cited by AKA include cases where:

• The FDA failed to adequately disclose and account for material facts from the peer-reviewed Case Report of nine deaths in Sweden that were published in 2011 in the Journal of Analytical Toxicology. That report concluded the deaths were actually the result of adulteration of kratom powder with a toxic dose of O-desmethyltramadol.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why are the drug companies so afraid of this herb to the point of wanting to schedule it?!?

Because when used judiciously and carefully, it can assist in managing pain and stress, without the need of going to a prescription painkiller.

But in looking at using this, there are two things you have to understand, absolutely; the first is the correct dosage for your body weight, and the second is, the quality of the kratom you are buying.

DEAF 76-YEAR-OLD WOMAN KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS AND ARRESTED OVER ALLEGED JAYWALKING

“Despite recognizing that Mrs. Jin could not hear or understand him, Officer Corvello made no attempts to effectively communicate with Mrs. Jin at any point before or during her arrest,” the suit states.

Within minutes of Corvello watching an elderly deaf woman cross the road with her groceries, Jin found herself surrounded by police — for jaywalking. As officers arrived, they searched Jin and all of her groceries. During the search, Jin produced her California identification card, disabled senior citizen bus pass, and a handwritten card with the name and phone number of Jin’s daughter for emergencies.

According to the lawsuit, Jin was terrified and begged the cops not to hurt her but this was to no avail.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this... is what "to protect and serve" looks like these days in California.

PEPE ESCOBAR: ECONOMIC WAR ON IRAN IS WAR ON EURASIAN INTEGRATION

Hysteria reigned supreme after the first round of US sanctions were reinstated against Iran over the past week. War scenarios abound, and yet the key aspect of the economic war unleashed by the Trump administration has been overlooked: Iran is a major piece in a much larger chessboard.

The US sanctions offensive, launched after Washington’s unilateral pullout from the Iran nuclear deal, should be interpreted as an advance gambit in the New Great Game at whose center lies China’s New Silk Road – arguably the most important infrastructure project of the 21st century — and overall Eurasia integration.

The Trump administration’s maneuvers are a testament to how China’s New Silk Road, or Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), threaten the US establishment.

From ‘menace’ to assets: Soros now buying social media shares

Months after denouncing social media as a “menace to society,” controversial billionaire George Soros is again investing into Facebook, Twitter and streaming services Spotify and Pandora, while scaling back his Google holdings.

With hedge funds filing their second-quarter statements with regulators this week, it has emerged that Soros Fund Management LLC is once again investing in Facebook. The fund has also bought shares in Twitter and the two streaming platforms, while selling off some stock in Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. and Amazon.com.

News of Soros’s acquisitions have raised suspicions in circles that have long seen Soros as a foe of copyrights.

Human Freedom at the Precipice: The Techno Tyranny Regime has been UNLEASHED

A techno tyranny regime has been unleashed against humanity, and it is far more dangerous than even the threat of nuclear weapons.

The tech giants have now become more powerful than governments. They hold all the keys and control all speech. They can sway elections and blockade narratives that challenge powerful corporate interests. They can even blackmail anyone in a position of power, including U.S. Supreme Court justices and Senators.

They’re run by unelected globalists, accountable to no one. And they have exhaustively demonstrated they will abuse and exploit their power to increase their own dominance at the expense of human freedom.

If the tech giants are not stopped, dismantled and prosecuted, human freedom will be crushed and exterminated. Human civilization will never recover, and “the beast” created in the Left’s desperate ploy to censor one man will quickly turn against humanity, devouring every last shred of freedom now desperately clawing for survival.

The Internet Just Crowd-funded The Release Of 4,358 CIA Mind-Control Documents

A crowdfunding campaign has succeeded in raising the funds necessary to pay a Freedom of Information Act request fee for documents related to the CIA’s controversial MKUltra program.

John Greenewald of Black Vault, a website that publishes government documents, appealed to the internet for help after the agency refused to waive the $425 fee it was demanding to release the documents. Greenewald, who has been filing FOIA requests for two decades, had previously published files on MKUltra, a program best known for dosing individuals with drugs like LSD to research mind control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Greenewald, and good on the crowd sourcing folks on this!!!

This was a dark, and nasty, chapter in American Black Ops, that should:

1. Have its details seen from what it was, in the light of day, and
2. Never be replicated by this or any government again in human history.

Twitter To "Suspend Accounts For Trying To Evade Suspension"

Having seemingly distracted the world, briefly, from being caught 'shadowbanning' conservatives (or should we say "using quality filters"), by outright-banning other right-leaning individuals (Alex Jones and Peter van Buren forever; and Candace Owen and Ron Paul Institute's Daniel McAdams temporarily), it appears Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey has a cunning plan for purging the rest of the world's naysayers from his platform.

It's simple - according to the latest tweet from @TwitterSafety - Twitter will suspend you for trying not to be suspended...

Facebook restores Telesur page with vague explanation of controversial block

The English language page of the Latin American channel Telesur has reappeared on Facebook after two days. The social network offered a vague technical explanation for the move that sparked concerns of censorship worldwide.

"The team informs me that there was instability on the platform, which caused this problem, but now everything should be in order," Telesur quoted a support technician at Facebook as saying soon after the page was restored.

Telesur’s page had disappeared Monday evening, as Facebook sent a form letter informing the network it might have violated the platform’s terms of use – without specifying which ones and how.

Five examples that show internet censorship is as much a threat to the left as the right

So, it’s no surprise that weeks after Facebook partnered up with this less-than-objective group, it deleted from its platform the page belonging to top English-language, left-leaning Latin American news outlet Telesur without any explanation at all. The page was restored two days later, with Facebook citing vague “instability on the platform” as the cause of the block.

Telesur just so happens to be one of the only major outlets reporting on events in Venezuela in a manner that goes against the US government position and US mainstream media perspective — so obviously, out with Alex Jones it must go.

THE EXILING OF INFOWARS FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

Jones says “Mass censorship of conservatives and libertarians is exploding. You’ve already seen this with the demonetization and ultimate purge of Infowars and other alternative media outlets by mega-corporations working in tangent to stifle competition.” He is right in that it really does seem that it is right-of-centre voices that are being purged disproportionately, the left argues that is because the right are disproportionately “haters”.

Russia Hysteria Gave us Social Media Censorship

It started with Hillary Clinton floating out the big lie, that 17 US intelligence agencies are “confident” that Russia hacked DNC servers and John Podesta email accounts, in a Kremlin plot to elect Donald Trump as President of the United States.

Fast forward two years later and witness Silicon Valley tech giants colluding in a span of 12 hours to de-platform Infowars and Alex Jones.

These are not isolated incidences. The one gave us the other.

The Deep State’s chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton, lost to the ultimate outsider, Donald Trump. All eyes, and all lies, turned to the perennial scapegoat Russia.

This time the elitist plan was more sinister than ever. Why let a good lie like ‘Russia election meddling’ go to waste?

The U.N. Is Behind Alex Jones Censorship

This targeting by out and proud, liberal companies, like Facebook, Spotify, Apple, Google, Youtube, and Twitter should be viewed in no less terms than election meddling, seeing it attempts to destroy one of two major right leaning media outfits in the country.

The phenomena of corporations revealing publicly their “political stripes” when traditionally they always have stayed neutral is a very new development in terms of geopolitics. People are simply not sophisticated enough, and missing the larger agenda here.

I have written in the past on this topic of corporations being politized during the Obama administration seeing it all started under him. I believe this to be a U.N. plan that is working to homogenize secular ethics enforcement among multinational companies. These companies are being given favored international status because of the adherence to U.N. objectives.

Internet Censorship: Appeal to Reinstate “American Everyman”

Just a week or so after Spotify, Google, Apple and Facebook made the curiously synchronized move to kick Alex Jones and InfoWars off their platforms, and just days after Facebook shut down Venezuelan news network TeleSur’s facebook page (for the second time), the war on the free internet has opened up another front.

Small independent blogs are being shut down, seemingly without reason and certainly without explanation.

AmericanEveryman.com has been closed without notice or warning, according to the blog’s owner Scott Creighton. Allegedly for violating WordPress’ “terms of service”, although they have apparently been entirely vague about how.

Other such blogs – fellowshipofminds.com and jaysanalysis.com – have suffered the exact same fate, on the exact dame day. There is undeniably a push to silence dissent and purge it from the internet. There may well be dozens – even hundreds – of other examples.

2-minute summary video: Pennsylvania Attorney General releases grand jury report documenting 301 pedophile priests raping 1000s of children, church ‘secret archive’ to hide/continue OBVIOUS crimes, backing similar evidence on UK PM Ted Heath, Bushes

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“We subpoenaed, and reviewed, half a million pages of internal diocesan documents. They contained credible allegations against over three hundred predator priests. Over one thousand child victims were identifiable, from the church's own records. We believe that the real number of children whose records were lost, or who were afraid ever to come forward is in the thousands.

Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.” ~ Introduction: Grand Jury report released by PA AG Josh Shapiro after two years’ investigation

Cooperate Or Die: In Private Meeting, Top Facebook Exec Threatened News Outlets

During a closed-door and off-the-record meeting last week, top Facebook executive Campbell Brown reportedly warned news publishers that refusal to cooperate with the tech behemoth's efforts to "revitalize journalism" will leave media outlets dying "like in a hospice."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why the independent media is really important right now, and so worthy of support, both informationally and financially.

Because Brown's call to "revitalize journalism", is nothing more than a not so subtle, in your face threat, that the presstitutes and whorespondents can be broken, forever, by not adhering completely to the narrative of the nation-state, and any countering argument to that narrative must be ground down into the dirt, permanently and immediately.

So no, Mr. Brown: WRH refuses to do this, and we have suffered intensely from the financial, social, and intellectual stigmas associated with not carrying the Unhinged, Surveilled State of Amerika's water for it.

Yes, the siren song of the money, and opportunities available after becoming "the US Deep State's bitch" can still be heard, sotto voce; but just like listening to the song of a mermaid, trying to lure a sailor to their death, when you understand how completely expendable ordinary working people are to the inner workings of the monied who rule this country, the ethical costs of such a switch in perspective, are simply too great to bear.

Korean Leaders Agree to New September Summit in Pyongyang

Following two hours of meetings between top North and South Korean officials on Monday, the two sides announced that an agreement has been reached to hold a third summit in September. The summit will be in Pyongyang, though the exact date has not been announced.

Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in first met in April in the demilitarized zone, and then held a more informal summit in late May. At the time, officials on both sides suggested more summits were likely in the future.

As with the late May summit, this one comes amid signs that US-North Korea diplomacy is stumbling. South Korea has been advising the US on how to make progress, though often the US has rejected proposals that involve making any concessions.

North Korea is known to want a peace deal ending the 1950 Korean War, and the US is seen as resistant to the idea. The South Korean government has been pretty open about wanting peace too, however, and may try to get the process moving irrespective of US reticence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing both Koreas should do, and immediately, is reunify, putting an end to US threats and meddling in the region.

Once Korea is reunified, the US government cannot but treat it as a sovereign, undivided country, unless it characterizes the whole place 'a newly minted rogue nation.", and go after it as a whole entity.

And the optics on such a move would be horrifically awful.

YouTube to add “fact check” propaganda messages to MMR vaccine videos in latest Orwellian attempt to override reality

The move comes after YouTube announced this spring that it will place descriptions taken from Encyclopedia Britannica and Wikipedia alongside videos about topics that tend to attract conspiracy theories, such as the Oklahoma City bombing and the moon landing. Although YouTube has not shared a full list of topics that will be given this treatment, some of the topics identified in a post to its administrators include global warming, Dulce Base, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Kecksburg UFO incident, the 1980 Camarate air accident, and the MMR vaccine.

The company has not notified the users who originally uploaded the videos in question that they will bear these propaganda messages. It is not clear why YouTube is lumping the MMR vaccine’s proven link to autism in the same category as conspiracy theories, but given their track record, politics almost certainly played a big role.

US Dropped Mutual Assurances of Non-Meddling from Helsinki Declaration – Reports

The United States rejected a Russian offer to include mutual assurances of non-interference in polls from a proposed joint declaration at the Helsinki summit, media said.

Russia suggested adding a clause that would call cyberattacks on critical infrastructure – power grids, water pumps, banks and hospitals – unacceptable, three Russian and US officials told the Kommersant newspaper.

Sources said Moscow had proposed "joint measures to prevent the use of cyberspace to destabilize internal political processes, including elections." The United States initially agreed to sign the joint declaration but then rowed back on it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please note that it was the US government which rejected such language.

Antifa Vows “Bullets” For Political Enemies; Media Ignores Threat

Far left group’s open incitement to violence gets zero press coverage.

The mainstream media completely failed to report on Antifa members in DC yesterday, some of whom went on to assault police officers, carrying a banner which openly advertised their intention to put bullets in their political enemies.

Numerous video clips and photos show Antifa members carrying a large black banner which reads, “It takes a bullet to bash a fash.”

In another clip, leftists are asked what they would do if they met President Trump.

“I would murder him,” answered one, while another said, “We’d have to do him like Gaddafi.”

I asked leftist progressives outside the White House today what they would do if they met President Trump.
Their answers:
•"I would murder him."
•"We'd have to do him like Gaddafi."
•"If I get a chance to fuck him up I would."
•"Beat his ass."

Facebook's anonymous censors take down Latin America's Telesur, and nothing can stop them

When Facebook decides to censor, there is absolutely nothing to stop them. For the second time, left-leaning Latin American news network Telesur has had its Facebook page removed, with no explanation given.

When Telesur's page was first taken down in January this year, no explanation was given then either. 'Kafkaesque' is an overused phrase, but here it is absolutely valid. Telesur is being punished, yet no one will actually tell them why. Here is a description of Kafka's The Trial: "it tells the story of Josef K., a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority, with the nature of his crime revealed neither to him nor to the reader." Sound familiar?

The Real Reasons Peter Strzok was Fired from the FBI

There are certainly more than just the anti-Trump text messages sent by former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok that led the second in command at the FBI to fire him. FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich actually overruled a recommendation by the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) to suspend and demote the former senior agent, and instead, terminated Strzok on Friday.

Former FBI special agents, some of whom worked with OPR for years, said they agree with Bodwich’s decision. They told SaraACarter.com that the system is broken and Bodwich had no other choice but to step in and fire Strzok. They say political leanings, friendships and dual systems of justice inside OPR have plagued how cases regarding FBI agents are adjudicated and handled.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hoping and praying that President Trump will absolutely fire everyone in the FBI who has not lived up to their Oath to Congress, and will replace them with people who will do that, and right the heck now!!

2016 Trump Tower Meeting Looks Increasingly Like a Setup by Russian and Clinton Operatives

The June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between high-ranking members of the Republican presidential campaign staff and a Russian lawyer with Kremlin ties remains the cornerstone of claims that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election.

A growing body of evidence, however, indicates that the meeting may have been a setup -- part of a broad effort to tarnish the Trump campaign involving Hillary Clinton operatives employed by Kremlin-linked figures and Department of Justice officials. This view, that the real collusion may have taken place among those who arranged the meeting rather than the Trump officials who agreed to attend it, is supported by two disparate lines of evidence pulled together for the first time here: newly released records and a pattern of efforts to connect the Trump campaign to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And we have a companion piece to this, also from whatdoesitmean.com, with the headline reading as follows;

JUDGE ORDERS RELEASE OF ‘MUSLIM SCHOOL SHOOTING TRAINING CAMP’ SUSPECTS AFTER CHARGES OF RACISM

Judge Sarah Backus ordered the release of five suspects accused of running a “school shooting training camp” after one of their attorneys said they’re only being targeted because they’re “black and Muslim,” as opposed to “white and Christian.”

“Many people here live in unconventional ways,” Judge Baukus said.

“The NRA right now are telling us that guns are a good thing and that we should be training our teenagers to go ahead and use them, but now that we have someone who’s actually do that, and they’re not white, and they’re not Christian we think there’s some nefarious plan,” one of the suspects other attorneys told the media outside the court.

From CNN:

The evidence was intended to paint a disturbing picture of a zealous family training for a violent mission against government institutions, New Mexico prosecutors said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about the one dead kid, and the 11 starving children?!?

No crimes here, right, Judge Sarah Backus?!? Starvation and murder are not crimes against minor children in this country, if the family is Muslim, right?!?

With this release from prison by this Judge, one has to speculate if this guy wasn't hired by elements of the Deep State to teach his kids to do school shootings, as a way of imposing a total and complete gun ban on American citizens.

I fully expect all charges here to be dropped; the guy got caught before he could finish his intended work, and the case will no longer see the light of day in the media.

CENSORSHIP IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POWERFUL PEOPLE GET SCARED

Anyone who tells you the recent escalation of censorship by U.S. tech giants is merely a reflection of private companies making independent decisions is either lying or dangerously ignorant.

In the case of Facebook, the road from pseudo-platform to willing and enthusiastic tool of establishment power players is fairly straightforward. It really got going earlier this year when issues surrounding egregious privacy violations in the case of Cambridge Analytica (stuff that had been going on for years) could finally be linked to the Trump campaign. It was at this point that powerful and nefarious forces spotted an opportunity to leverage the company’s gigantic influence in distributing news and opinion for their own ends. Rather than hold executives to account and break up the company, the choice was made to commandeer and weaponize the platform. This is where we stand today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is only one thing to do with the unholy triumverate of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube: ignore them as though they were the plague, and take a look at their upcoming competitors, like GAB! Yandex, and DuckDuckGo.

This is not to say that ultimately, these outlets won't get bought out, but at least for the time being, they are reasonably open, and don't track where you have been on these sites.

Ajit Pai loses in court—FCC can’t kill broadband subsidy in Tribal areas

A US appeals court has blocked the Federal Communications Commission's attempt to take a broadband subsidy away from Tribal areas.

The FCC decision, originally slated to take effect later this year, would have made it difficult or impossible for Tribal residents to obtain a $25-per-month Lifeline subsidy that reduces the cost of Internet or phone service for poor people. But on Friday, a court stayed the FCC decision pending appeal, saying that Tribal organizations and small wireless carriers are likely to win their case against the commission.

AN 11-YEAR-OLD HACKED A MOCK FLORIDA ELECTION SITE IN 10 MINUTES

The security of the U.S. election system just lost a vote of confidence.

At the annual hacker conference DefCon, Emmett Brewer, an 11-year-old boy from Austin, Texas, was able to change the results on a mock Florida election website. It took him 10 minutes.

Though the website in question was a mere replica of the Florida Secretary of State website, the hack points to the larger vulnerabilities of the election infrastructure in the U.S. On the heels of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election, Microsoft has already detected evidence of Russian interference in three races in the 2018 mid-terms.

THERE'S A FENTANYL CRISIS IN THE UNITED STATES. NEBRASKA IS ABOUT TO MURDER SOMEONE WITH IT ON PURPOSE

If only "states with the death penalty spent half as much time developing policy to support people in their lives as they did figuring out ways to kill people"

As Nebraska prepares to complete its first state-sanctioned execution in two decades, human rights groups are condemning the death penalty and denouncing officials for operating under a "cloak of secrecy" in obtaining the drugs that will be used to kill Carey Dean Moore—substances that have caused tens of thousands of accidental deaths across the U.S. in recent years.

Amnesty International denounced the state's move to participate in "the ultimate denial of human rights" after having carried out no executions since 1997.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have never seen the film "Dead Man Walking", featuring Susan Sarandon as Sister Prejean, and Sean Penn as the guy about to be executed, please do yourself a favor, and record it/buy it. If you still think that summary execution for murderers, even in the most "kind and humanitarian way possible" is absolutely the right thing to do, this movie.... just may change your mind and heart, particularly if you are a brother or sister Christian.

This Catholic nun has been one of the most ardent activists against the death penalty in the United States, and I have absolute utter respect for her.

I do not believe in executions for murder, and before you label me a namby-pamby leftist sychophant on this issue, I would like to politely remind you, that the chain of evidence in this country is horrifically vulnerable to misuse, neglect, and damage.

If you don't believe me, take a look at what The Innocence Project in Texas is doing.

The Innocence Project

For murder, I would suggest a national standard of life imprisonment with zero possibility of parole; these people cannot be allowed to kill again.

OH LOOK, YET MORE EFFORTS TO STRANGLE BROADBAND COMPETITION

A major component of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the idea of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply put, the rules set forth required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

The effort didn't work out for several reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here on Oahu, we are stuck with Spectrum, which promises much, in those multi-million commercials, featuring the voice of the comedian, Ellen De Generes, but actually delivers very little of what it promises.

When cable companies do not have to compete, they don't have to give a damn about the true quality of their service, or if there is even a modicum of public satisfaction with it.
