More Hillary Clinton emails surface – and show how anti-gay Sharia law ruler shunned by celebrities treated Bill 'like part of his family'

Among the thousand cuts Donald Trump delivered to Hillary Clinton en route to her political death was the accusation that she was cozy with the repressive Sultan of Brunei. A 2012 email released Thursday by the U.S. State Department seems to back him up.

In the message, Clinton aide Huma Abedin told the then-presidential candidate that Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, worth a reported $20 billion, wanted to see her and husband Bill for an intimate 'family style dinner.'

Brunei government officials 'say [the] sultan sees wjc [William Jefferson Clinton] as part of his family and this is treating you in this "informal" way,' she wrote.

FBI Dismisses Child Porn Prosecution After Refusing To Hand Over Details On Its Hacking Tool

The FBI has decided to let one of its Playpen defendants walk rather than turn over information on its Network Investigative Technique. The NIT, deployed all over the world on the back of a single warrant obtained in Virginia, unmasked Tor users by dropping code on Playpen visitors' computers that sent back IP addresses and other information about the user's computer.

The warrant itself has been ruled invalid by a number of judges presiding over Playpen prosecutions, although not all of them have determined that the evidence obtained by the NIT should be suppressed. The FBI not only sent malware to site visitors, but it also ran (and possibly improved) the child porn website for two weeks while pursuing its investigation.

Google nukes ad-blocker AdNauseam, sweeps remains out of Chrome Web Store

Google has removed ad blocking and privacy extension AdNauseam from its Chrome Web Store, and has taken the unusual step of flagging the extension as malware, thereby preventing AdNauseam from being used by those who have installed the software via Chrome's developer mode.

Chrome users who put their browser into developer mode and install the extension – by dragging the AdNauseam .crx file onto the extension management page – will see it install. But Google overrides that choice, presenting a prompt that says, "To make Chrome safer, we have disabled the following extension that isn't listed in the Chrome Web Store and may have been added without your knowledge."

Dodgy dealer on Amazon lures marks towards phishing site

However, when the shopper adds the item to their basket and checks out, it redirects them away from Amazon to make the payment at a convincing phishing site.

‘What Is Going On?’ Trump Wonders Why FBI Never Requested Access To The DNC’s ‘Hacked Servers’

Amid an avalanche of self-replicating reports of “Russian hacking”, Donald Trump has questioned how the task of checking whether the DNC’s servers were indeed breached was outsourced by the FBI to a third party.

“The Democratic National Committee would not allow the FBI to study or see its computers info after it was supposedly hacked by Russia,” President-elect tweeted after the DNC reportedly confirmed that the bureau failed to send their own staff to check the servers.

The Real Racists: Examining The Outrage Over The Chicago Kidnapping

The recent kidnapping and torture of a special needs teen has inspired a massive amount of outrage on social media.

Many people, including a considerable amount of non-Whites, have been quick to assert that this barbaric act was indeed an instance of anti-White racism. This is significant, for the very term “racism” has been hijacked and redefined so that it cannot apply to White victims. As such, pointing out anti-White racism is a legitimate, albeit tame, act of rebellion against Cultural Marxism.

The GOP's Brilliant Plan To Distract From Critical Confirmation Hearings

The Republican party appears to be employing a strategy wherein the public—and even lawmakers—will be too distracted to place much needed scrutiny on President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet nominees.

Not only are six major confirmation hearings now scheduled for the same day (see below)—”preventing any one nominee from dominating a news cycle,” as the Washington Post put it—but Trump himself rescheduled a long-awaited press conference for that very day: January 11. And that same Wednesday also happens to be when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to begin a so-called vote-o-rama, “in which senators take dozens and dozens of votes on amendments with no clear end,” Politico explains.

Hundreds Of US Tanks Arrive In Europe To Support NATO Anti-Russian Buildup

As we reported yesterday, Lithuania confirmed the presence of U.S. special forces inside its territory, stating the deployment’s purpose is to train local forces and act as a deterrent against Russian aggression. Supposedly, the move is in response to a "escalation" by Vladimir Putin, who has been deploying nuke-ready missiles in the Russian province of Kaliningrad located in the heart of central Europe. This move has prompted the neighboring Baltic states to become “highly concerned” about Russian military activity.

Furthermore, sometime during the spring of 2017, NATO is expected to send battalions of 800 to 1,200 troops to each of the Baltic States and Poland. The mainstream media has even dubbed NATO’s recent buildup the alliance’s “biggest military buildup on Russia’s borders since the Cold War.” Even Great Britain will be sending fighter jets, as well as troops to Romania in order to counter Russia in the region.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This buildup is insane, and doesn't augur well for peace in the region, or the for the world.

Cal State professor calls for barring Trump’s use of sciences, other technologies, asserts global warming fallacies

Professor of History at California State University Sacramento and Huff Post contributor Joseph A. Palermo came forth last week with a climate change piece in which he managed to bash President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican leadership before managing to defame himself.

In his post titled “Republicans, Climate Change and the New Reality” the liberal professor made it “clear” that the election of Donald Trump as the “45th President of the United States” is a “catastrophe” in which “the country (and the world) seem to be awaiting the consequences” of.

Record 95,102,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Number Grew 18% Since Obama Took Office in 2009

Barack Obama's presidency began with a record number of Americans not in the labor force, and it's ending the same way.

The final jobs report of the Obama presidency, released Friday, shows that the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 (18.09 percent) since January 2009, when Obama took office, continuing a long-term trend that began well before Obama was sworn in.

In December, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record 95,102,000 Americans were not in the labor force, 47,000 more than in November; and the labor force participation rate was 62.7 percent, a tenth of a point higher than in November.

The participation rate dropped to a 38-year low of 62.4 percent on Obama's watch, in September 2015. It was only 3-tenths of a point higher than that last month.

More of Obama's precious "legacy", I see.

Anti-Russia “Fake News” Campaign Rolled out Across Europe. Moscow Tagged as a Sponsor of ISIS-Daesh

This is the content of the resolution passed by the European Parliament on November 23, on “EU strategic communication to counteract propaganda against it by third parties.” The declared aim of the extensive resolution is to combat “third-party actors aiming to discredit” the European Union (EU) that “do not share the same [European] values.”

The resolution then defines as the main “actors” Russia and Daesh (or ISIL) and it is Russia that occupies most of the resolution.

It equates Russia with “transnational terrorist and criminal organisations…” that have “repeatedly engaged in a strategy of deliberate deception and disinformation, especially in the ‘new media’, social networks and the digital sphere…”

Accusing Russia of “information warfare”, the resolution asserts that it “is employing a wide range of tools and instruments” to “challenge democratic values, divide Europe, gather domestic support and create the perception of failed states in the EU’s eastern neighbourhood…”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the EU: with these accusations regarding Russia, you have REALLY "jumped the shark", and have become totally irrelevant and useless to the futures of the countries you allegedly represent.

And to conflate Russia with ISIS?!?

Please, have you all gone absolutely barking mad, to use this analogy?!?

Kindly get your collective heads out of a very dark, unpleasant place, and sniff some sunshine, for heaven's sake!!

Russia is not the problem here; it is the dissatisfaction of Europeans having to live with the regulations of the out-of-touch, tone-deaf and blind EU Eurocrats in Brussels which has caused a populist uprising, and a very strong desire to break free of an economic and financial system which is great for large corporate banking and taxing entities, but lousy for the people living in the countries which comprise the EU.

I do not know how much longer the EU, or the Euro, will actually survive; but my sense is, without a major war, fronted by NATO and the US against Russia, it will ultimately have to collapse of its own weight, as the basic international understandings which created it were based on false assumptions.

It is the "fake news", regurgitated by corporate presstitutes to further government agendas, worldwide, which get people killed.

Do any of you Eurocrats remember what happened after the US government accused Saddam Hussein of "having weapons of mass destruction"?!?

I rest my case.

Obama's "mine" Trump: Sends to Europe launchers "Vulkan" sowing mines from helicopters

BY spokesperson for the Pentagon, leaving the Obama administration has expressed its readiness to deploy the system in Europe "Volcano", which the armed forces of the United States used since 1995 to quickly set up mines through their throws from a specially equipped helicopter, as well as from vehicle wheels and tracks .

In accordance with the concept of the system, and anti-anti-personnel mines are placed in a special multi-barrel rocket launchers mounted on the aforementioned carriers: by 960 per helicopter mines and 160 mines per vehicle, and then throw on different sides during the ride.

Such a quantity of mines to be in a fairly short period of time forming large areas of mine fields, which prevent access to potential opponents a large military facilities, and large concentrations of troops and military equipment.

The emergence of 'Volcano' in Europe can hardly lead to a radical change in the balance of power on the European continent.

Strikes Spread in Mexico, Thousands of Police Deployed to Capital

Police made up to 600 arrests throughout Mexico yesterday as protests continued against President Enrique Pena Nieto’s cut to gas subsidies, known colloquially as the gasolinazo. One police officer was killed during confrontations in an impoverished neighborhood of Mexico City, and the mayor deployed 9,000 police to guard commercial centers throughout the city.

Yesterday also saw indications that localized protests by workers may be developing into a broader strike movement. Fourteen thousand bus, truck and taxi drivers in the oil-producing state of Veracruz announced a statewide strike of indefinite length, with many leaving their trucks, cabs, and buses parked on the street.

The trade unions are stepping in to prevent the demonstrations from coalescing into a nationwide strike. Trade union bureaucrats who announced the recent strikes stated explicitly that they were forced to do so by workers, who in the words of one trade union official, are becoming “violent.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, the Mexican military is called in to put down these riots, the only real question will be: to whom will they owe their allegiance?!?

To the protestors, or to the government?!?

Yemen's Children Starve as War Drags On

As the first light of dawn trickles in through the hospital window, 19-year-old Mohammed Ali learns that his two-year-old cousin has died of hunger. But he has to remain strong for his little brother Mohannad, who could be next.

He holds his brother's hand as the five-year-old struggles to breathe, his skin stretched tight over tiny ribs. "I have already lost a cousin to malnutrition today, I can't lose my little brother," he says.

They are among countless Yemenis who are struggling to feed themselves amid a grinding civil war that has pushed the Arab world's poorest nation to the brink of famine. The family lives in a mud hut in northern Yemen, territory controlled by Shiite Houthi rebels, who are at war with government forces and a Saudi-led and U.S.-backed coalition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, growing up, I never, in my wildest imagination, could imagine my country, the United States of America, as ever being complicit in war crimes; fast forward to 2015, and the US government sure as hell is.

Collective punishment of a population is a war crime; the Saudi blockade of Yemeni ports is making this happen, and the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

The killing and wounding of innocent non-combatants, particularly when they are children, is a war crime: the US government is enabling Saudi war crimes in Yemen.

And if you want to know what daily life is looking like, particularly for Yemenite children, take a good, hard look at these images:

Images: children starving due to Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen

Images: Yemeni children wounded or killed from Saudi bombings

After President Trump is inaugurated, We the People need to have a very sober conversation with his administration, to see where the US government is with continuing to enable Saudi war crimes in Yemen; and I say this because at the end of the day, the only real solution to the conflict will have to be a political one.

The killing of non-combatants is a war crime.

US Spy Chief Claims ‘Unprecedented’ Russian Involvement in US Vote

Speaking to the Senate today, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper openly disagreed with President-elect Donald Trump on the narrative of the 2016 presidential election, insisting he was “even more resolute” that the Russians had hacked the election, and promising some evidence would be made public next week.

Clapper claimed Russia had meddled in the US election not just through alleged hacking of the Clinton campaign, but by “spreading of propaganda,” saying that the existence of state-run television station RT played a role in the election by “disparaging our system.”

Clapper then went on to lash Trump for being so vocal in questioning the allegations, saying that there was a difference between “healthy skepticism” by lawmakers and open disparagement of the intelligence community by not accepting their findings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to soon-to-be-retired Director of National Intelligence James Clapper:

About your complaint that RT.com "disparages our system"; what I find, when I go there to read their Enlish language version, are articles which the US Presstitutes won't touch, because they are "geopolitical kryptonite" in this country. For example:

Radioactive contamination spreading in shuttered Hanford Site nuclear plant

Do Americans, particularly those in proximity to this closed plant, not have the right to be informed as to what is going on here, and that it might well be a threat to the water and soil in adjacent areas?!?

Now, I have checked cnn.com; foxnews.com; msnbc.com; and nbc.com: I have found not one word on this unfolding catastrophe.

And DNI Clapper, the reality is, if you, in fact, had hard evidence about Russian hacking, you would have been shouting it, from the rooftops, months ago.But you don't really have compelling, incontrovertible evidence; just assertions which, to date, have been, embarrassingly, and noticeably, "fact-free".

I am experiencing more than a little concern about the timing of the release of this alleged "evidence" to the US public "next week".

Is the "deep state" in this country planning a false flag action, at home or abroad, that will be so shocking, (and of course, be blamed on Russia) that this "alleged evidence" will become a moot point, because the American people have had their attention misdirected by the alleged "crimes" of Russia to the point where logic becomes lost in their collective "flight or fight" response to this incident?!?

For Russia (and Putin) to do something that bone-headedly stupid as some kind of attack against the US, or US assets abroad, on the eve of the presidential transition in this country, just boggles the mind.

Cui bono?!?

Who benefits?!?

Certainly not Russia, or Putin.

But the ever war-centric US "deep state" would love to see nothing more than a hot war against Russia, just a week before Trump has taken his Oath of Office, as their "revenge" against a Trump Presidency.

But a caveat here to those who may be planning such an outrage against this country; this is not 2001 America, where the corporate presstitutes could regurgitate anything the Administration said to forward its agenda, and expect that to be believed, such as "Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction."

The independent media has caused a war-sceptical and war-weary population to seek its information from other sources than those who consistently carry the government's water, because the American people understand that the corporate presstitutes lied us into wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan.

The real fake news, spewed out by the corporate presstitutes on the justifications for those wars, got people killed, in wars ultimately for private profit.

The American people will not be fooled again.

The four suspects were taken into custody on Wednesday after the 28-minute video was livestreamed on Tuesday. Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanishia Covington, 24, face charges of aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Hill has also been charged with robbery, residential burglary and possession of a stolen motor vehicle, while Cooper and Brittany Covington face charges of residential burglary.

US Officials Say Russia Approval of Trump Win Is ‘Evidence’ of Hacking

The “evidence” that Russia was behind the hacking of Democratic Party targets ahead of the 2016 US election appears as flimsy as ever, as officials start to let out what appears to have been the cornerstone of their entire narrative, that Russia was happy Trump won the election.

Officials conceded today that the important evidence that let to their “conclusion” only came after the election was already finished, by way of explaining why they didn’t make such accusations before the vote, and the Washington Post report quotes senior officials as saying a major part of that conclusion was intercepted communications showing Russia was happy with the outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to the editorial board of the Washington Compost: you cannot "double down" on nothing, and pretend that you actually have something, which is just what you have done with this faux "justification" of blaming Russian hackers for breaches of the DNC computers, when the FBI was refused access to the DNC's computers in the first place, after the claim of hacking went public.

FBI refused access to DNC computers "allegedly" hacked by the Russians

I think, rather than "happy" at the outcome from the Russia side, the more correct word would be "relief". They knew what was in store, should Clinton have gotten elected, and that is a three letter word, called "war".

Clinton is a card-carrying warmonger, and darling of the military industrial complex. During her campaign, look at the CVs of her advisors, and will someone tell me that ANY of them were willing to "give peace a chance"?!?

Not until pigs fly, most probably.

Hillary Clinton’s National Security Advisers Are a “Who’s Who” of the Warfare State

Clinton's Syria policy would require war with Russia

How Hillary Clinton Became a War Hawk

The warhawks and warmongers wanted her as their president, big-time, because she was in lock-step with their agenda; We the People were not.

And as a peace activist myself, I was relieved when Trump won the election; because although I don't believe he will be averse to using military action where there is no other way to get something done, I sincerely believe that he will explore all possible peaceful options before his military are directed to put our young men and women who serve in harm's way.

Clinton, on the other hand, wouldn't have given a rat's anus about those Americans killed and maimed for life, because for her, and her inner circle, it's all about the money, and wars of conquest becoming wars of personal enrichment.

UPDATE On ALLEGED "Russian Hacking" Story. The TRUTH Is Being Eaten Alive, And I Just Can't See It Being Whole Again.

I have to admit to you guys, I am in the dark groping around trying to see my way to begin this report. It is as if the Intelligence Community is very educated in creative writing. They know how to blah, blah, and blah, but they don't know how to be straight shooters with the truth. So, sometimes one can have an education, but not know how to put it to good use. In this NSA/CIA/FBI/Intelligence report on the alleged "Russian hacking" story, let me tell you first of all what Senator Lindsey Graham is saying, then you will know how much trouble we are really in.

Fight GM Layoffs! Defend The Right To A Job!

In December, GM announced that it would eliminate a full shift and nearly 1,300 jobs at its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. At the same time, GM said it would idle five other plants in January, including the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, from one to three weeks, impacting some 10,000 workers. On top of the shift elimination at the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, GM earlier announced that it is suspending the third shift at its Lordstown, Ohio and Lansing River plants, impacting another 2,000 workers.

US House Shamelessly Grovels to Israel… AGAIN

Yesterday, January 5, the US House put on a shameful display of groveling to Israel, a display even more noxious than their usual butt-kissing of the world’s #1 terror state, Israel, voting to pass HR 11.

The House measure, which is non-binding, calls for the UN resolution “to be repealed or fundamentally altered so that… it is no longer one-sided and anti-Israel” and allows all final status issues toward a two-state solution to be resolved through direct bilateral negotiation.

It also demands that the United States ensures that no action be taken at the Paris Conference on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict scheduled for January 15, that would impose an agreement on the two sides.

I say it is time to grab every member of Congress who serves Israel, crate them up (don't forget the air holes) and ship them to Tel Aviv!

John McAfee: "The Most Deceptive Propaganda To Date Was Perpetrated On The American Public"

Jordan warns of 'catastrophic' repercussions to Trump plan to move US embassy to Jerusalem

Jordan's Government spokesman has warned of "catastrophic" repercussions if US President-elect Donald Trump makes good on a campaign promise to move the American Embassy in Israel to contested Jerusalem.

Last month, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said moving the embassy to Jerusalem was a "very big priority" for the President-elect.

Such a move could affect relations between the US and regional allies, including Jordan, Information Minister Mohammed Momani said, addressing the issue publicly for the first time.

An embassy move would be a "red line" for Jordan, would "inflame the Islamic and Arab streets" and serve as a "gift to extremists", he said

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Momani is utterly correct about the impact such a move would have on the Middle East, and the cold, hard reality that it would almost surely attract more violence in Israel.

but unfortunately, the world is forced to deal with one of the most churlishly hubristic, and genocidal Israeli heads of state the world has witnessed to date, and that would be one Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu.

He welcomes violence as a pretext for war against his neighbors (and that 38 billion dollar "blank check" for military and financial Obama just wrote him, over the next 10 years, I am sure, figures prominently in his plans).

Most probably, he won't attack Iran or Syria, because of Russian support of those countries, and he knows that any radical assault will be met with an intense Russian military response.

But Lebanon?

It is known that the Israeli government would like to expropriate the Litani river in Lebanon, which, at some points in its path, is only 5 kilometers from the Israeli border.

If I were a military and/or political leader in Lebanon, I think I would have great cause for concern, as the military capabilities of Hezbollah, while formidable, are no match for those of the Israeli military.

From Official Policy To Mainstream Discourse: Propaganda In The Making

By Daniel Espinosa Winder

The Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act (CDPA), passed last December 8th by Barack Obama, was first presented to the US Congress on March 16th. This effort in information warfare was in the making long before the mainstream media campaign against ‘fake news’ – or serious allegations of Russian meddling in US elections – started. This is an analysis of how foreign and domestic policy becomes ‘popular demand’ through mainstream media...

Don't look now, but some upstart named Qaddafi is fixin to take political control of Libya! (Will history repeat itself? And, will this wreck Hillary's and Obama's "legacy"?)

Back in the day, Britain and Italy appointed some chap named Idris as King of Libya. This Idiris fellow was rather reluctant about the whole 'King' thing. One day while King Idris was in Turkey, a 27 year old Colonel named Qaddafi called him on the phone and informed the King that he, Gathafi, was now Supreme "Grand Poobah" of Libya. King Idris was totally cool with that and wished Qadhafi good luck. That is how Qathafi came to power in Libya without anyone getting so much as a paper-cut.
Libya was the poorest Nation in Africa when Kadhafi took over.
Since then Kazzafi made a few changes.
Everyone in Libya was to own their own home, with no mortgage or taxes or payments of any kind.
The oil wealth was first Nationalized, profits used to benefit the overall Nation and people, then the oil was privatized in 2011 and each and every libyan was to get dividends amounting to about $22,000/year on the non transferable stock they owned.

The top 10 most outrageous science hoaxes of 2016

Science hoaxes were running rampant throughout 2016, pushed by the fakestream media (CNN, WashPost, NYT, etc.) alongside complicit government organizations working in collusion with dishonest corporations steeped in scientific fraud (Monsanto, Big Pharma, etc.).

2016 saw more science hoaxes than a typical year, with the media placing special emphasis on the Zika virus terror campaign (rooted in total scientific hucksterism) and more climate change propaganda (all based on fraudulently altered data). In every case, those pushing the science frauds claimed to have a divine monopoly on “science” while declaring all opposing views to be “unscientific.”

In this way, much of the “science” in today’s corrupt society has really become nothing more than a cult of scientism, complete with “faith” in the correctness of socially-reinforced beliefs while exercising instant rejection of evidence that contradicts the fairy tale narratives of the science elite.

Berlin – Another False Flag? Government Complicity? Part of New World Order Agenda?

In Berlin, the first ‘culprit’ was a Pakistani who apparently ‘escaped’. When later he turned up and explained with proof his innocence, they had to let him go. In the cabin of the truck they also found a dead man of Polish origin. He couldn’t be accused, since he was dead.

Then the chase was stalled, until miraculously, about a day later, they found in the truck identity papers of a Mr. Anis Amri (24) of Tunisian citizenship beneath the driver’s seat. As is usual with these terrorists, they like to leave their ID cards behind. It seems to be part of their strategy to be caught and killed.

Then, once more there was a ‘suspect’, who could be chased, throughout Europe.

At three in the morning of December 23, again miraculously, Anis Amri turned up on a plaza in Milan, got allegedly into a confrontation with two policemen, who claimed he pulled a gun, when one of them shot and killed him. No witness, no proof.

U.S. intercepts capture senior Russian officials celebrating Trump win

The ebullient reaction among high-ranking Russian officials — including some who U.S. officials believe had knowledge of the country’s cyber campaign to interfere in the U.S. election — contributed to the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Moscow’s efforts were aimed at least in part at helping Trump win the White House.

The Canadian Museum for Human Rights enters death spiral, fueled by debt

Charity Intelligence Canada is a charity watchdog. Its latest report on the Friends of the CMHR has some unsettling details.

The Friends, which is a registered charity, spends 43 percent of its revenues on administrative costs and 18 percent of donations on fundraising costs. Given that "revenues" is made up of donations plus interest, which last year was negative one thousand dollars, in reality 61 percent of the money donated to Friends goes to overhead.

And then there's this paragraph in the Ci report:
Note: Ci Charity Intelligence has used the restated 2014 financial statements in the charity’s F2015 audited financial statements. Ci has adjusted amortization and allowance for doubtful pledges receivable and gifts to the museum affecting expenses by ($4m) in F2016, by ($18.4m) in F2015, and by ($14.1m) in F2014.
Given that the paragraph is written in a foreign language, auditorese, its hard to say what it really means.

The rising hysteria about Russia is best understood as fulfilling two needs for Official Washington: the Military Industrial Complex’s transitioning from the “war on terror” to a more lucrative “new cold war” – and blunting the threat that a President Trump poses to the neoconservative/liberal-interventionist foreign-policy establishment.

By hyping the Russian “threat,” the neocons and their liberal-hawk sidekicks, who include much of the mainstream U.S. news media, can guarantee bigger military budgets from Congress. The hype also sets in motion a blocking maneuver to impinge on any significant change in direction for U.S. foreign policy under Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to both the American and Russian governments: the American people, adamantly, do not want a war with Russia.

And to the American government; I have been unable to believe a single thing you have said to the American people since 9/11, which was a notorious pack of lies you used to sell the American people on the other lies upon which you predicated the invasion - and occupation - of both Afghanistan, and Iraq.

As a Christian pacifist activist with a voice on this blog, who constantly entreats her government to resolve its geopolitical issues through patient, moral, and hard-won negotiations, rather than through war, I must warn our readers the US government is making an horrific mistake by pushing a war against Russia (and/or China) right now.

Because pulling back, and looking at the "big picture", I understand, without question, that we do not have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive result from a conventional war against Russia.

Right now, when US weapons are field deployed, they are, many times, so late as to be obsolete relative to their original mission; absolutely do not work as advertised (need I remind you of the continuous fluster-cluck which has been the saga of the F-35?!?); and are hideously over-budget.

Russia and China are getting a lot more bang for their weaponry buck right now, without paying anywhere near what the US government is paying for substandard, and failing, equipment: here are some examples, from readily accessible web sources:

To put the US military, and its people, into a war the US military most probably cannot win, for the reasons I have enumerated above, is the ultimate betrayal of the American people by elements of the "deep state" in this country, and it must - peacefully and logically - be stopped in its tracks, and now.

After AirBnB Ban, New Yorkers Show The Country How to Stand Up to Government

Tacitus, a senator and historian of the Roman Empire, once wrote that when “laws were most numerous, … the commonwealth was most corrupt.”

Much like the people of the Roman Empire, United States residents now suffer due to the country’s overly-regulated system. Too many rules, Tacitus would have repeated, indicate corruption. But America’s love for crony capitalism is deep-rooted and allows special interests the means to leave nothing to chance. The result? Government and its representatives now have more power than ever, and the young individual is poorer today than those of past generations.

As local and state governments chase the same unattainable goal, passing more laws to keep the individual beholden to powerful interests, people working in the shadows seem to thrive — at least, that’s what recent reports on AirBnB hosts in New York suggest.

FBI: DNC rebuffed request to examine computer servers

The Democratic National Committee "rebuffed" a request from the FBI to examine its computer services after it was allegedly hacked by Russia during the 2016 election, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Thursday.

"The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated," a senior law enforcement official told CNN. "This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information. These actions caused significant delays and inhibited the FBI from addressing the intrusion earlier."

Treasury Nominee Steve Mnuchin’s Bank Accused of “Widespread Misconduct” in Leaked Memo

The memo obtained by The Intercept alleges that OneWest rushed delinquent homeowners out of their homes by violating notice and waiting period statutes, illegally backdated key documents, and effectively gamed foreclosure auctions.

Carrie Fisher’s childhood was pretty awful – and, unfortunately, in Hollywood, that isn’t out of the ordinary. Her parents divorced before she was 3; Fisher’s father, 1950s singer Eddie Fisher, notoriously left Debbie Reynolds for her best friend, Elizabeth Taylor. His daughter rarely saw him thereafter. Reynolds herself was often gone, performing, leaving her children alone. Carrie Fisher was smoking marijuana by age 13 (after her mother apparently introduced her to it), later graduating to harder drugs (acid, LSD, mushrooms, cocaine), some of which she engaged in with her father. “Star Wars” made Fisher a mega-star when she was only 19, and she did not handle celebrity well. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 24, and although virtually everyone rightly praises Fisher for her frankness and honesty about her struggles with mental illness, far fewer are asking to what extent her upbringing, neglect, heartbreaks and drug use contributed to her diagnosis (or vice-versa).

Regulations which, conveniently for the bureaucrats no seed library can afford to follow.

Congressional Democrats Attempt Challenge to Trump’s Electoral College Win

One of the groups pressing for an Electoral College vote challenge, Unite for America, was also behind unsuccessful efforts to persuade electors to turn on Trump when they cast their votes on Dec. 19. The group is now encouraging lawmakers to disqualify electors on technical grounds.

This is a clear indication of how difficult it will be for President Trump and his team to enact his bold, conservative platform. Democrats are willing to throw around outrageous accusations and use shameful legal maneuvers, trying to stall and prevent Trump’s success.

This is an insult to the millions of Americans who voted for Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It also proves the Democrats are no longer the party of the people (if they ever really were) and have become a bunch of undemocratic sore losers who believe that lying and cheating are their divine right!

Obama Daughters Appears Sad, Depressed After Multi-Million Dollar Christmas Vacation in Hawaii Ends

After the final, multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded Obama Christmas vacation in Hawaii, people can’t stop talking about how Sasha and Malia Obama looked as they stepped off Air Force One.

The vacation, which lasted 16-days, clearly didn’t make them happy. Look (below) as you can see their sadness and depression from this being the final time they would ride on their father’s presidential plane.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Slight correction. That was never their father's plane. That plane belongs to the American people, who get to choose who rides in it.

Arizona DOT Assures Residents They Can Fly Without Real ID Until 2020, After TSA Confuses & Scares Everyone

It's a sad state of affairs when the Arizona Department of Transportation has to take to Facebook assuring the confused public that they can continue to use their state driver license as ID to fly until 2020, despite misleading signs that TSA has posted in airports. "Current Arizona driver licenses, IDs are valid for air travel until Oct. 1, 2020. New TSA notices at airports don't affect Arizonans. PERIOD," an annoyed-sounding AZ government press release stated yesterday. After 2020, Arizona residents can opt to apply for a 'Voluntary travel ID' to comply with DHS requirements to board an airplane.

After Move To Canada, Wayback Machine Launches Trump Video Library, Complete With "Fact Checks"

Back in November we noted that the Internet Archive (Wayback Machine) had announced plans to move their servers to Canada out of fear of censorship under the new Trump administration, saying "on November 9th in America, we woke up to a new administration promising radical change." The decision struck us as somewhat odd at the time given the website's seemingly innocuous content.

Obviously the 'Wayback Machine' has been compromised politically and thus they have flushed their credibility down the toilet along with the corporate media. So it's time to migrate: https://archive.is/

Trump's About to Wipe the Floor with the CIA - Agency Makes Veiled Threat Against President-elect

The effort to smear Trump and Russia in the media has backfired and propelled the president-elect to propose a major housecleaning in the US intel community - but they aren't taking it lying down... The propaganda campaign had two objectives. First, to delegitimize Donald Trump's election as president. Second, to box Trump into a continued policy of antagonism toward Russia upon taking office. The first objective failed totally on Dec 19th when the electoral college carried out its constitutional duty and formally elected Trump as President of the United States. The second objective is in the process of failing right now...

Syrian Christians in US Thankful for Aleppo Liberation

Syrian Christian refugees in US express their thanks at Christmastime for the liberation of East Aleppo by Syrian and Russian forces... the Obama Administration still continues to use every legal gimmick they can find to keep Christians from receiving asylum in America. The reason is simple. Obama and Clinton don't want these Christians talking about the beheadings and crucifixions by the US-backed terrorists back home. And the few Syrian Christians who do receive asylum here are careful not to. But oops! I mean a really BIG BIG OOPS! It seems someone in the State Department forgot to tell a group of Syriac Orthodox Christian refugees in Paramus New Jersey that they are supposed to see the liberation of East Aleppo as a tragedy--not a Christmas Gift from God Almighty!

Something horrible is happening in Aleppo. Check out this introduction to a Daily Mail photo essay... Harrowing pictures, utter devastation, haunting images, Russian tanks driving through streets littered with rubble, Russian soldiers making their mark on the ruble with mysterios cyrilic graffiti. Desperate Syrian women and barefoot children, among dogs picking through the wreckage of buildings. Rows of weaponry mysteriously lined on the ground and huge explosions shaking the earth! Oh my, this is horrible! What disaster has befallen this long-suffering city now?! It turns out Aleppo has been invaded by an army of Russian sappers combing the city for mines. It has Russian military engineers sharing their canteen food with civilians, leading bomb detection dogs looking for explosives, handling and collecting dangerous unexploded ordnance and disposing of it in controled exposions. In areas which they have cleared they leave a graffiti saying "MIN NET" or "clear of mines"...

Joe Biden: Obama administration secretly 'retaliated' against supposed Russian hacking

According to the vice-president, some of the steps taken by Washington are public, while others will remain secret. The outgoing American administration 'retaliated' against our country for fictitious hacker attacks not only with new sanctions and the expulsion of diplomats, but also some 'secret operations' by security services. This was reported in an extensive interview with PBS by US vice-president Joseph Biden. "When the question over a month ago was whether we will respond to hacker attacks, I said we'll do it when (and how) we want to. Some things that we had done, you already know - other things you will never know," - he said, stressing that Washington had two options to respond to Russia for alleged interference in the presidential election, overt and covert. "We did both," - said Biden.
