8CHAN ALERT! US GOVERNMENT DEEP STATE WANTS TO SHUT US DOWN AND SLAP US WITH TREASON CHARGES!

Our supposed crime? We helped expose Clinton's corruption (their globalist s-elect) and supported Trump who actually ended up winning the election!

Is democracy about to be killed in America?

The man who served as former president George W Bush's most senior ethics lawyer has suggested that the FBI is "uncovering evidence of treason" by far right US news websites over their links with Russia.

Richard Painter tweeted a link to an article suggesting that the Bureau was looking into news outlets like Breitbart News, InfoWars and the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, to see whether they worked with Russian-backed operatives to disseminate stories favouring Donald Trump during the presidential election. at times when his campaign appeared to be struggling.

Sources told US publisher, McClatchy that online "bots" had created created millions of social media posts linking to articles on the sites, some of which were completely false, while other contained a mixture of fact and fiction.

Investigators are now trying to establish whether the websites were complicit with the people managing the "bots" or the operatives were controlling them without their knowledge - which is entirely possible.

Above the article on his Twitter post, Mr Painter said: "FBI uncovering evidence of treason. There is no other word for it."

Spokespeople for Sputnik, RT and InfoWars have all vehemently denied links to Russia.

Middle-Age US whites Dropping Like Flies

Middle-age white Americans with limited education are increasingly dying younger, on average, than other middle-age U.S. adults, a trend driven by their dwindling economic opportunities, research by two Princeton University economists has found.

The economists, Anne Case and Angus Deaton, argue in a paper released Thursday that the loss of steady middle-income jobs for those with high school degrees or less has triggered broad problems for this group. They are more likely than their college-educated counterparts, for example, to be unemployed, unmarried or afflicted with poor health.

"This is a story of the collapse of the white working class," Deaton said in an interview. "The labor market has very much turned against them."

Israeli-American teen arrested in Israel for over 100 JCC bomb threats

Jewish Community Centers Hate Hoaxes

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A Israeli teenager who also has American citizenship was arrested on suspicion of carrying out more than 100 bomb threats on Jewish institutions in the United States.

Israel’s anti-fraud squad arrested the 19-year-old suspect at his home in southern Israel and searched the premises on Thursday. He also is accused of a series of threats made in Europe, Australia and New Zealand in the past six months, according to reports in Israel. He also is reported to have called in threats to the Israel Police two months ago regarding Israeli educational institutions.

He is reported to have tried to take a policewoman’s gun during his arrest and harm himself with it.

Israeli police said the teen has been the subject of months-long undercover investigation by the anti-fraud unit, as well as the FBI in the United States and law enforcement in other countries. He has lived in Israel for many years, Haaretz reported.

He appeared in court in Rishon Lezion on Thursday for a remand hearing, where he was ordered held over until March 30. His motives are unknown, according to reports.

Ynet, which reports that the teen is from Ashkelon, reported that during the hearing the teens attorney requested that he be placed under supervision after raising concern for his mental status, claiming that he might try to harm himself. The attorney told the court that the teen has had a brain tumor since the age of 14, and has been homeschooled since then. The attorney said that the tumor affects his behavior, Ynet reported.

The teen reportedly used advanced technology and voice-altering equipment to call in the threats to more than 100 JCCs, Jewish day schools and other Jewish institutions in the United States, according to The Times of Israel. He also is accused of making a threatening call to Delta Airlines, leading to the emergency landing of at least one plane.

During the cyber unit’s raid on the teen’s home, police found a computer lab with sophisticated equipment, encryption and transmission systems, and a powerful antenna, according to reports.

The army refused to draft the teen after finding him unfit for service, Haaretz reported.

His father also has been detained on suspicion that he knew about his son’s activities, and ordered held in jail until March 30.

Israel’s minister of public security, Gilad Erdan, commented on the teen’s arrest.

“I congratulate the Israeli police on leading a complex international investigation, together with law enforcement agencies from around the world, which led to the arrest of the suspect,” Erdan said. “We hope that this investigation will help shed light on some of the recent threats against Jewish institutions, which have caused great concern both among Jewish communities and the Israeli government.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement praised the work of the Israeli police and the FBI.

“The Department of Justice is committed to protecting the civil rights of all Americans, and we will not tolerate the targeting of any community in this country on the basis of their religious beliefs,” Sessions said in the statement. “I commend the FBI and Israeli National Police for their outstanding work on this case.”

Earlier this month, a St. Louis resident and former journalist, Juan Thompson, was arrested and charged for making at least eight bomb threats against Jewish community centers and the Anti-Defamation League.

Thompson, 31, made some of the threats in the name of a former romantic partner he had been cyberstalking and some in his own in an attempt to portray himself as being framed. He was charged with cyberstalking, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

WikiLeaks: CIA Bugs ‘Factory Fresh’ iPhones

RELATED REVELATIONS (Up To Date): >>>/falloutequestria/25

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

A new WikiLeaks Vault 7 leak titled “Dark Matter” claims, with unreleased documents, that the Central Intelligence Agency has been bugging “factory fresh” iPhones since at least 2008. WikiLeaks further claims that the CIA has the capability to permanently bug iPhones, even if their operating systems are deleted or replaced.

The documents are expected to be released after a 10 a.m. EDT “press briefing” that WikiLeaks promoted on its Twitter.

https://wikileaks.org/vault7/darkmatter/?cia

Watch a livestream of the Julian Assange led event here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ta9SuIvsU0

A summary of the documents has been released on the WikiLeaks website. It reads: http://archive.is/RmNFG

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 “Dark Matter”, which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware.

Among others, these documents reveal the “Sonic Screwdriver” project which, as explained by the CIA, is a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting” allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick “even when a firmware password is enabled”. The CIA’s “Sonic Screwdriver” infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

“DarkSeaSkies” is “an implant that persists in the EFI firmware of an Apple MacBook Air computer” and consists of “DarkMatter”, “SeaPea” and “NightSkies”, respectively EFI, kernel-space and user-space implants.

Documents on the “Triton” MacOSX malware, its infector “Dark Mallet” and its EFI-persistent version “DerStake” are also included in this release. While the DerStake1.4 manual released today dates to 2013, other Vault 7 documents show that as of 2016 the CIA continues to rely on and update these systems and is working on the production of DerStarke2.0.

Also included in this release is the manual for the CIA’s “NightSkies 1.2” a “beacon/loader/implant tool” for the Apple iPhone. Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.

While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.

BOYCOTTS WORK! Starbucks CEO To Step Down After Pledge To Hire 10,000 Refugees BACKFIRES

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/179

The arrogance of a CEO of a major company like Starbucks, that would put his radical political opinions above the health of the company and the stockholders is astounding. The idea that Howard Schultz believed he could say Starbucks would make hiring 10,000 refugees a priority, while so many Americans are out of work, and it wouldn’t harm the Starbucks brand is beyond foolish…

The arrogance of a liberal Starbucks CEO has backfired on him. He has to step down from his high position.

Howard Schultz will be replaced as Starbucks CEO next month.

Schultz was in the news recently when he arrogantly said that Starbucks would hire 10,000 refugees in reaction to President Trump's first executive order on the temporary travel ban for nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries.

Many Americans were offended by Schultz's offer to refugees because many of them are not employed. They felt that Americans should have been a priority for jobs for a huge company like Starbucks. Trump has said that U.S.companies must give priority to Americans.

Trump supporters also got angry with the CEO's big offer to refugees because they know he is making a political statement against Trump.

Trump supporters called for a boycott of Starbucks since January 29. Shortly after, Starbucks has felt the effect. Sales went down.

Starbucks consumer perception levels as measured by YouGov BrandIndex's Buzz score, falling by two-thirds between January 29 and February 13.

The problem with Schultz is that he used his Starbucks position for his political agenda. Schultz is a known Democrat and public supporter of Hillary Clinton. He was even considered as a running mate for the Democratic nominee.

Schultz will remain with Starbucks as executive chairman. He will focus on Starbucks' high end coffee shops. It is a lower position in essence. The new job will also not allow him to make such big statements as what he arrogantly did with the supposed 10,000 jobs offer to refugees.

He will be replaced by current Chief Operating Officer Kevin Johnson who takes over next month.

It is a loss for Schultz and a victory in a sense for Trump supporters.

Russia may be helping supply Taliban insurgents: U.S. general

The top U.S. general in Europe said on Thursday that he had seen Russian influence on Afghan Taliban insurgents growing and raised the possibility that Moscow was helping supply the militants, whose reach is expanding in southern Afghanistan.

"I've seen the influence of Russia of late - increased influence in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban," Army General Curtis Scaparrotti, who is also NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, told a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.

Scaparrotti said the stakes were high. More than 1,800 American troops have been killed in fighting since the war began in 2001.

Taliban officials have told Reuters that the group has had significant contacts with Moscow since at least 2007, adding that Russian involvement did not extend beyond "moral and political support."

White supremacist's church burns down in North Dakota

A fire that destroyed a church owned by a well-known white supremacist in a small US town is under investigation.

The place of worship in Nome, North Dakota, was recently purchased by Craig Cobb, who tried to set up a whites-only enclave in another part of the state.

The blaze was reported on Wednesday afternoon and the structure was razed by the time fire crews arrived after nearly an hour.

Cobb said the fire at the former Zion Lutheran church was "100% arson".

He says he might open a new church called "the President Donald J Trump Church of Rome", not Nome, the town located about 70 miles (112km) southwest of Fargo.

Cobb is one of the best known white supremacists in North America, according to the (((Southern Poverty Law Center))), which tracks hate groups.

"Stinging Defeat For Trump": House Delays Trumpcare Vote On Doubts It Can Pass

"Stinging Defeat For Trump": House Delays Trumpcare Vote On Doubts It Can Pass

>Summary of the chaotic day's key events:

- GOP House leaders delayed their planned vote Thursday to repeal and replace "Obamacare," which as AP put it was a "stinging defeat" for Paul Ryan and President Trump in their first major legislative test.

- The decision came after Trump failed to reach agreement with a bloc of rebellious conservatives. Moderate-leaning Republican lawmakers were also bailing on the legislation, leaving it short of votes.

- At least 30 Republicans said they opposed the bill, enough to defeat the measure. But the number was in constant flux amid the eleventh-hour lobbying.

- The bill could still come to a vote in coming days, but canceling Thursday's vote is a significant defeat. It came on the seven-year anniversary of President Barack Obama signing the Affordable Care Act, years that Republicans have devoted to promising repeal.

- "No deal," House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said after he and his group of more than two dozen rebellious conservatives met with Trump to try to get more concessions to reduce requirements on insurance companies.

- The Republican legislation would halt Obama's tax penalties against people who don't buy coverage and cut the federal-state Medicaid program for low earners, which the Obama statute had expanded. It would provide tax credits to help people pay medical bills, though generally skimpier than Obama's statute provides. It also would allow insurers to charge older Americans more and repeal tax boosts the law imposed on high-income people and health industry companies.The measure would also block federal payments to Planned Parenthood for a year, another stumbling block for GOP moderates.

- A Quinnipiac University poll found that people disapprove of the GOP legislation by 56 percent to 17 percent, with 26 percent undecided. Trump's handling of health care was viewed unfavorably by 6 in 10.

- GOP leaders had targeted Thursday for the climactic vote, in part because it marks the seventh anniversary of Obama's signing the measure into law. With the House in recess awaiting the outcome of the White House meeting, C-SPAN aired video of that signing ceremony.

- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., couldn't resist a dig. "You may be a great negotiator," she said of Trump. "Rookie's error for bringing this up on a day when clearly you're not ready."

- A key moderate who had been in the meeting, Rep. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, issued a statement saying he would be voting "no" on the health bill. "I believe this bill, in its current form, will lead to the loss of coverage and make insurance unaffordable for too many Americans," said Dent, a leader of the Tuesday Group of moderate-leaning Republicans.

Shia LaBeouf's "He Will Not Divide Us" Installation Shut Down After One Day in Liverpool

The art installation moved to the UK only yesterday.

Shia LaBeouf's political "He Will Not Divide Us" art installation with regular collaborators Rönkkö & Turner moved from its second US location to the UK yesterday (22 March), but it has already been shut down following "police advice".

The UK version of the works consisted of a continuos live stream of a flag emblazoned with the words "He Will Not Divide Us". It was being displayed by FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool, UK, who adopted the project after it launched at an unknown location on 8 March.

The live-stream of the flag had been planned to be continually broadcast at hewillnotdivide.us for four years, or the duration of Donald Trump’s presidency, but the stream is currently inactive and FACT Liverpool has just tweeted the below stating the installation has been removed due to "dangerous, illegal trespassing".

The project initially began at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on 20 January, the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Following constant disruptions and hate speech by far-right extremists the project was removed by the museum.

LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner then moved "He Will Not Divide Us" to a wall outside the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque on 18 February, but following reports of shots fired in the vicinity, it was again removed.

It’s unclear whether or not this latest set back to the project will stop it from reappearing at another location, but you can keep an eye on hewillnotdivide.us for updates.

UK is Like Sweden

This place is just like Sweden. Terrified of admitting the truth about the threat we face, about the horrors committed by the migrants we failed to deter — because to admit that we are sinking, and fast, would be to admit that everything the liberals believe is wrong.

>That multiculturalism has not worked. That it is one big fat failure and one big fat lie.

>London is a city so desperate to be seen as tolerant

>An entire city of monkeys: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. Blind. Deaf. And dumb.

>Please, no hashtag, no vigil, no tea lights. I am begging you not to light up Parliament in the colours of the Union.

>Because we are not united. We are wrenched asunder.

>The patriots of the rest of England versus the liberals in this city. The endless tolerance to those who harm us, (while the Home Office tries to shift the focus of public fear to white terror) — versus the millions like me who face the truth, with worried families and hopeless hearts, who feel the country sinking.

>We are taken under the cold water by this heavy right foot in the south, a city of lead, so desperately wedded to the multicultural illusion that it can only fight those who love the country the most, blame those who are most proud to be British, and shout racist at the 52%.

>how many more attacks must pass before we acknowledge these are no longer the acts of ‘extremists’? That there is no safe badge with which to hold these people at arm’s length, in the way the liberals casually use the term 'far-right' for anyone who has National pride.

>This is why there is no anger from me this time, no rage. No nod for those who pretend we will not be cowed, even as they rush home to text their mum they are safe. No surprise that the city of which I was so proud is now punctured by fear, and demarcated even more formally by places we cannot tread; there were always parts in which a white woman could not safely walk.

>Now I feel only sadness, overwhelming sadness.

While IRS Stalled Conservative Groups, Satanic Club Granted Tax-Exempt Status in 10 Days

The Internal Revenue Service made Tea Party and conservative groups wait years for tax-exempt status, but granted exempt status to an "After School Satan Club" in just 10 days, according to the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Charitable, religious, and educational organizations can receive tax-exempt status if they follow IRS guidelines for nonprofits. The IRS for years prevented some conservative groups from obtaining this status, targeting them using key words such as "tea-party" and "patriot." Many of these groups had to wait up to seven years to receive tax-exempt status, while others were denied.

"In the meantime, leftist groups like the Satan club got fast tracked," Judicial Watch said. "The Satanic cult applied for tax-exempt status on October 21, 2014, and received it on October 31, 2014."

The nonprofit Reason Alliance was behind the after-school club. It operates in Washington State as the Satanic Temple of Seattle.

"Children ages 5-12 will develop basic critical reasoning, character qualities, problem solving and creative expression, according to the Satanic Temple filings included in the documents," Judicial Watch explains. "The club logo is a pencil with devil's horns."

A number of secular or atheist groups, including the Reason Alliance, refer to themselves as "satanist" in order to shock religious communities. The group's website states it is committed to "secular, humanistic values" and opposes tax exemption for religious organizations.

No one signed up for the satanic club in the two weeks after its creation. The IRS still allowed this group to operate as a nonprofit in taxpayer-funded elementary schools, the watchdog group noted.

Lawmakers reject bill to make Obongo's birthday national holiday.

Lawmakers reject bill to make Obongo's birthday national holiday.

Illinois lawmakers failed to pass a measure in the legislature that would have made former President Barack Obongo's birthday a statewide holiday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The bill would have observed August 4 as a legal holiday in his home state, but the Chicago Tribune said the proposal was six votes short of passing, where it would have next moved to the Illinois Senate.

"The fourth day of August of each year shall be a legal holiday to be known as Barack Obongo's Birthday to be observed as a day on which to hold appropriate exercises in commemoration of our illustrious President. When August fourth shall fall on a Sunday, the following Monday shall be held and considered the holiday," the text of the bill states.

The bill to honor Obongo's birthday was initially filed by Illinois Rep. Sonya Harper on January 20.

Opponents of the bill cited economic concerns over closing state buildings on holidays, and noted that not all presidents from the state are honored with a day in their name – including Ronald Reagan, the Tribune reported.

Despite its lack of support Tuesday, the bill might not be completely dead.

According to the Chicago Tribune, should Harper find more backers, the legislature could reconsider the legislation.

The statehouse is also looking at legislation that would honor Obongo by designating I-294 the "President Barack Obongo Tollway." [Very appropriate]

Chicago also will be the home of Obongo's presidential library.

Globalist Cunts and Assholes @ United Nations Openly Call For Banning Free Speech

The United Nations marked the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on Tuesday by telling governments around the world that regulating “hate speech” is part of the strategy needed to “stand up for someone’s rights.”

Governments around the world “have a legal obligation to stop hate speech…" UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein reportedly said Tuesday, adding a call “on people everywhere to ‘stand up for someone’s rights,'” the press release about the event said.

“It is not an attack on free speech or the silencing of controversial ideas or criticism, but a recognition that the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities,” Al Hussein said in a statement.

“Words of fear and loathing can, and do, have real consequences,” Zeid said.

In his statement, Zeid said that U.N. member states “do not have any excuse to allow racism and xenophobia to fester.”

States “have the legal obligation to prohibit and eliminate racial discrimination, to guarantee the right of everyone, no matter their race, color, national or ethnic origin, to equality before the law.”

“At the Summit for Refugees and Migrants in September 2016, U.N. member states adopted a declaration strongly condemning acts and manifestations of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” the press release said. “The Summit also sparked the UN’s Together initiative to change negative perceptions and attitudes aimed at refugees and migrants.”

The press release said this year’s theme is “ending racial profiling and incitement to hatred, including as it relates to people’s attitudes and actions towards migration.”

In other words, if you call Islamic Terrorism for what it is, the UN wants you locked up!

ISIS Claims Responsibility for London Terror Attack, British Govt In Total Denial

Four people were killed in the Islamic terrorist attack.

ISIS have claimed responsibility for the terror attack in London in which four people died and 29 were injured.

The Amaq News Agency, seen as the terror group's official press service, report the attacker was "a soldier of Islamic State".

The terror group does not provide the name of the attacker who killed three people before he was shot dead by police.

Officials have now said the lone wolf maniac was inspired by “Islamic terrorism” and had been investigated for violent extremism by MI5 before he mowed down crowds on Westminster Bridge and stabbed cop Keith Palmer to death outside Parliament.

Theresa May told Parliament this morning: “What I can confirm is the man was British-born and that some years ago he was once investigated by MI5 in relation to concerns about violent extremism.”

London Terror attack,4 dead:Lucky he didn't have a gun,eh,yanks?

Police believe only 1 person was involved in attack

A suspected terrorist plowed a car into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge on Wednesday afternoon, then fatally stabbed a police officer before being shot.

In a Wednesday evening press briefing, Mark Rowley, assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said that the attack left four people dead: two members of the public, the stabbed officer and the attacker. This figure was revised down from the earlier five.

Police said about 29 other people were being treated in hospital, seven of who were is a severe condition.

Local law enforcement currently believe that the dead attacker is the only suspect, but Rowley declined to comment on the assailant's identity. The police's working assumption is that the attacker was inspired by international Islamist terrorism.

Londoners can expect to see heavier police presence, both armed and unarmed, throughout the city for the next few days, Rowley said.

The Parliament was quickly placed on lockdown in accordance with protocol for what authorities call a marauding terrorist attack. Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II were reported safe.

While the lockdown has been lifted, much of the area remains cordoned off as police continue with their investigation.

On Wednesday evening, May gave a stirring speech, in which she applauded the heroism demonstrated by the police. The location of the attack, steps away from the seat of British government, was "no accident," May said.

"The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech," she said.

"But let me make it clear today, as I have had cause to do before, any attempt to defeat those values through violence and terror is doomed to failure."

Londoners and tourists will wake up on Thursday and go about their lives as normal, May said.

Mayor Sadiq Khan made similar remarks earlier, saying "Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism."

"I want to reassure all Londoners and all our visitors not to be alarmed — our city remains one of the safest in the world," Khan said. "London is the greatest city in the world and we stand together in the face of those who seek to harm us and destroy our way of life. We always have, and we always will."

Police confirmed that a full counterterrorism operation is underway and that they are increasing law enforcement presence around the city.

The Port of London Authority said in a statement that a woman has been pulled from the River Thames. The agency said the woman was alive but has sustained very serious injuries.

Podesta Was Board Member Of Firms Linked To Russian Investors

RELATED: >>>/totalnews/129

Rep. Louie Gohmert, an outspoken House Republican from Texas, is calling for a congressional investigation of John Podesta’s role with Rusnano, a state-run company founded by Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned.

Podesta — Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign chairman and former President Bill Clinton’s White House chief of staff — first made contact with the Russian firm in 2011, when he joined the boards and executive committees of three related entities: Boston-based Joule Unlimited; Rotterdam-based Joule Global Holdings; Joule Global Stichting, the company’s controlling interest. All are high-tech renewable energy enterprises.

Three months after Podesta’s arrival, Joule Unlimited accepted a 1 billion ruble investment from Rusnano, amounting to $35 million in U.S. currency. The firm also awarded a Joule board seat in February 2012 to Anatoly Chubais, Rusnano’s CEO, who has been depicted as a corrupt figure.

Podesta has attempted to downplay his relationship with Joule and Rusnano, but it could come to haunt him.

One potential legal problem for him relates to the time he joined former President Barack Obama’s White House staff in 2014 as a senior counselor and failed to reveal his 2011 Joule stock vesting agreement in his government financial disclosure form.

Further, he failed to disclose 75,000 common shares of Joule stock he received, as disclosed in a WikiLeaks email.

After Podesta began working at the White House, his lawyer indicated in a Jan. 6, 2014 email that he had not yet finished the legal work on the private transfer of the stock to a family-owned entity called Leonido Holdings, LLC.

Gohmert’s call for an examination of Podesta’s Russian ties comes as Washington is in the grips of a set of allegations about Russian ties to President Donald Trump and his aides, as well as charges of Russian influence during the presidential election.

Gohmert is troubled about the Podesta-Russia connection, telling TheDCNF, “this certainly needs to be reviewed to see if there really is something nefarious going on with these activities.” Gohmert sits on the House Judiciary Committee and is vice chair of its subcommittee on crime, terrorism and homeland security.

The Podesta-Russia connection also could rekindle a new round of questions about Clinton relationships with foreign figures — in this case, Chubais.

Chubais, Russia’s deputy prime minister in the 1990s, owed his personal fortunes to Bill Clinton, who embraced him as a “reformer” in former President Boris Yeltsin’s government. Clinton’s ally instead created a new generation of tycoons who today rule Russia.

Podesta’s role at Joule was largely unknown until last year when the nonprofit Government Accountability Institute (GAI) published a highly-detailed report on Russian ties to Podesta and the Clintons.

An ongoing federal lawsuit, Neas Ltd, v. Rusnano, which is now before the U.S. District Court for Northern California, suggests Podesta and others at Joule may have unwittingly assisted Rusnano in a scheme hatched to move billions of weak rubles into valuable U.S. dollars by parking them as “investments” in high-tech companies in Boston and in Silicon Valley.

A deposition by Ilya Ponomarev, an architect of Russia’s innovation enterprises and the former chairman of innovations subcommittee in the Russian Parliament, shed light on Rusnano’s plans in the United States. He says its primary objective “was the transformation of Rusnano from a state-owned corporation to an enterprise suitable for operations in the United States.” Ponomarev now lives in exile in the United States.

Shortly after then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pursued her “reset” with Russia, state-owned Russian companies began targeting American companies in Boston and Silicon Valley as investment opportunities.

Americans Are Dying With Debt, Now Banks Expect Your Family Members To Pay After You Die

For the most part, your debt dies with you, but that doesn’t mean it won’t affect the people you leave behind.

“Debt belongs to the deceased person or that person’s estate,” said Darra L. Rayndon, an estate planning attorney with Clark Hill in Scottsdale, Arizona. If someone has enough assets to cover their debts, the creditors get paid, and beneficiaries receive whatever remains. But if there aren’t enough assets to satisfy debts, creditors lose out (they may get some, but not all, of what they’re owed). Family members do not then become responsible for the debt, as some people worry they might.

That’s the general idea, but things are not always that straightforward. The type of debt you have, where you live and the value of your estate significantly affects the complexity of the situation. (For example, federal student loan debt Opens a New Window. is eligible for cancellation upon a borrower’s death, but private student loan companies tend not to offer the same benefit. They can go after the borrower’s estate for payment.)

There are lots of ways things can get messy. Say your only asset is a home other people live in. That asset must be used to satisfy debts, whether it’s the mortgage on that home or a lot of credit card debt, meaning the people who live there may have to take over the mortgage, or your family may need to sell the home in order to pay creditors. Accounts with co-signers or co-applicants can also result in the debt falling on someone else’s shoulders. Community property states, where spouses share ownership of property, also handle debts acquired during a marriage a little differently.

“It’s one thing if the beneficiaries are relatives that don’t need your money, but if your beneficiaries are a surviving spouse, minor children — people like that who depend on you for their welfare, then life insurance is a great way to provide additional money in the estate to pay debts,” Rayndon said.

Good! Arkansas Gets Rid Of Gun-free Zones

Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, a Republican, signed a bill into law on Wednesday that will allow those with gun-carry permits and special training to carry in areas that are otherwise designated gun-free zones.

"This bill, in my view, reflects the will of the General Assembly and is constitutional and will balance public safety and the Second Amendment," Hutchinson told the Associated Press.

The law allows those with a gun-carry permit who complete eight hours of active-shooter training to carry in many places where guns are otherwise prohibited. The locations affected by the law include college campuses, churches, athletic events, and government buildings. Private property owners would still be able to prohibit firearms on their property.

The law is slated to take effect on September 1 but gives state police until January of next year to determine the specifics of the training requirements it lays out. Current gun-carry permit holders would have to take the training before they would be eligible to carry in the affected locations.

The law passed despite fierce opposition from some Democrats who were upset with several of the provisions, including the campus-carry rules. "People like to have a good time before the game, during the game, people get emotional and angry during the game," Democratic Rep. Greg Leding told the wire service. "I think the idea of introducing loaded weapons into those situations is just ridiculous."

Gun-rights proponents praised the law and said it would make the state safer.

"Only criminals can find safety in gun-free zones," Chris Cox, head of the National Rifle Association's lobbying arm, said in a statement. "By allowing enhanced permit holders to carry in more places, Gov. Hutchinson has made Arkansas a safer place to live."

Democrats Want To Censor Our Internet, Alternative Media....Again

Alternative Media Backup: >>>/killcen2017/

The campaign by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission to regulate the internet, from Twitter and Facebook to Drudge, is back after some liberal commissioners threw in the towel amid GOP opposition.

Seizing on an exit report card of the agency by ex-Commissioner Ann Ravel, the left is complaining that the internet isn't being regulated for political content and spending, but should be.

Using the "altFEC" twitter account, one of several "alt" sites set up by government workers in agencies resisting the new Trump administration, the proponents reference Ravel's critical report.

"It means that the @FEC's disclosure rules have not been updated for the era of YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter," it said, reiterating charges from Ravel and others that the FEC rules are outdated. She led the effort to change them and Republicans on the commission said that her goal was only to regulate right-leaning websites, like Drudge, and online campaigns of Republicans.

The new push for regulation drew a laugh from a conservative FEC watcher: "It is ironic that the Democrats are using an anonymous twitter account to attack the right of non-profit organizations to post content on the web for free without disclosing their donors."

Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under surveillance during the Obama administration following November's election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters Wednesday.

Nunes said the surveillance appears to have been legal, incidental collection and that it does not appear to have been related to concerns over collusion with Russia.

Nunes is going to the White House later Wednesday to brief the Trump administration on what he has learned, which he said came from "sources."

NOW CONFIRMED! Trump Was Tapped

RELATED: >>525602

Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

https://www.infowars.com/breaking-documents-show-obama-surveiled-entire-trump-family-for-8-years/

Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.

The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

A Simple Command Allows the CIA to Commandeer 318 Models of Cisco Switches

A Simple Command Allows the CIA to Commandeer 318 Models of Cisco Switches

Cisco Systems said that more than 300 models of switches it sells contain a critical vulnerability that allows the CIA to use a simple command to remotely execute malicious code that takes full control of the devices. There currently is no fix.

Cisco researchers said they discovered the vulnerability as they analyzed a cache of documents that are believed to have been stolen from the CIA and published by WikiLeaks two weeks ago. The flaw, found in at least 318 switches, allows remote attackers to execute code that runs with elevated privileges, Cisco warned in an advisory published Friday. The bug resides in the Cisco Cluster Management Protocol (CMP), which uses the telnet protocol to deliver signals and commands on internal networks. It stems from a failure to restrict telnet options to local communications and the incorrect processing of malformed CMP-only telnet options.

"An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malformed CMP-specific telnet options while establishing a telnet session with an affected Cisco device configured to accept telnet connections," the advisory stated. "An exploit could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and obtain full control of the device or cause a reload of the affected device."

Compounding the risk, vulnerable switches will process CMP-specific telnet options by default, "even if no cluster configuration commands are present on the device configuration," the advisory warned. The vulnerability mostly affects Cisco Catalyst switches but is also found in Industrial Ethernet switches and embedded services. Cisco plans to release a fix at an unspecified date.

While Friday's advisory said there are "no workaround that address this vulnerability," it did say the vulnerability was active only when buggy devices were configured to accept incoming telnet connections. Disabling telnet as a means for receiving incoming connections eliminates the threat, and Cisco has provided instructions for disabling telnet. Cisco switch users who aren't willing to disable telnet can lower the risk of exploits by using an access control list to restrict the devices that are permitted to send and receive telnet commands.

Cisco's advisory is among the first from a major electronics manufacturer to warn that its products are vulnerable to exploits discussed in Vault 7, the name WikiLeaks gave to thousands of pages of documents it said were leaked from the CIA. The cache appears to have come from an internal Wiki made available to CIA insiders. In it, the members discuss various exploits and the vulnerabilities they target in products from Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, Cisco, and others.

Documents published so far don't appear to explicitly discuss technical details of the vulnerabilities or how to exploit them. Last week, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange vowed he would privately disclose those details to manufacturers so they would have time to fix them before the vulnerabilities became widely known. According to Motherboard, WikiLeaks has yet to provide any such details and instead has made only unspecified demands.

The full list of affected Cisco switches can be found here.

Most Antivirus Tools Vulnerable To CIA Attacks, And You Cannot Not Trust Them

RELATED: >>>/hsgts/63

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

Last week’s CIA leaks from WikiLeaks revealed that most antivirus programs may have been bypassed at one point or another by the CIA. We’ve asked the antivirus companies about their opinions on the leaks and what they intend to do next.

According to WikiLeaks’ leaked documents, most popular antivirus tools have been bypassed and exploited by the CIA. This fact alone isn’t as surprising as one may initially think, because it’s actually quite common for sophisticated attackers to be able to bypass most popular antivirus programs. That’s how they deliver their malware in the first place.

The real problem may come from the fact that antivirus programs in general aren’t as secure as you might expect them to be. Also, because of their deep hooks into the operating system or browsers, they can sometimes make users even more vulnerable to attacks (at least of the more sophisticated type).

Although 21 antivirus and security solutions vendors were included in a WikiLeaks document describing bypasses against them, WikiLeaks left information about the attacks on only three antivirus vendors: F-Secure, Avira, and AVG (recently purchased by Avast, another antivirus vendor). The organization said it didn’t want to expose information that might endanger actual CIA operations, which may be why the information on most of the others was redacted.

F-Secure

The CIA had the following comment on F-Secure’s antivirus software, implying that F-Secure isn’t all that secure, and that it can be bypassed easily:

"In OSB's experience, F-Secure has generally been a lower tier product that causes us minimal difficulty. The only annoyance we have observed is that F-Secure has an apparent entropy-based heuristic that flags Trojaned applications or other binaries containing encrypted/compressed payloads. Two defeats are known to exist: On involves using RAR file string tables in the resource section, the other involves cloning a RAR file manifest file – the manifest technique also works against Avira's entropy-based heuristics."

"The leaks detail a large amount evasions for basically all the end-point security products.

I think it's a fair game. CIA has targets they are trying to get to, and some of those are protected by products like these. CIA wouldn't be doing their job if they wouldn't be developing techniques like these.

We don't consider this to be a vulnerability as such, as they are not crashing us or exploiting us. Anti-virus products are never perfect; some attacks will always succeed. A superpower intelligence agency with massive budgets can definitely do that.

I much prefer them doing it like this, instead of trying to twist our arm to let them through."

Avira

The CIA doesn’t seem to have a great opinion about Avira either, calling it "easy to evade":

"Avira has historically been a popular product among CT targets, but is typically easy to evade. Similar to F-Secure, Avira has an apparent entropy-based heuristic that flags binaries containing encrypted/compressed payloads, but there are two known defeats."

Avira released a statement to Tom’s Hardware in which it said that the issue was minor and was fixed a few hours after WikiLeaks released the CIA “Vault 7” documents.

AVG (Avast)

In the leaked document, the CIA seemed to say that AVG does catch the agency’s payload, but only well after its execution–and of course by then, it’s too late. That means the CIA could have chained together multiple exploits to disable the antivirus software before it could react.

"AVG catches a payload dropped to disk and launched via link file well after execution (process hollowing)."

AVG denied their anti-virus is vulnerable at all. FISHY!

Comodo

Comodo said that version 10 of the Comodo firewall was released earlier this year, and it shouldn’t be vulnerable to such attacks anymore. That will remain to be seen.

CIA Leaks Are A Wake-up Call for Consumers

RELATED: >>>/yugioh/330

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

As the full extent of the latest revelations by WikiLeaks sinks in, it once again reinforces a new normal for our world. Several lessons are in order from the cache of highly sensitive secret documents about the CIA’s technical capabilities that have been leaked.

First, the stark reality that no digital device, conversation or memory today is safe from the prying eyes of a spying agency or intruding hackers. The vulnerability of internet-connected devices is in sharp contrast to the rapid advances made in digital technology around the world and the real-time distribution of information that keeps us engrossed throughout the clock. While any one acting within legal boundaries need not worry about potential snooping by a government agency, it does raise disturbing questions about the privacy of information and personal activities for the average consumer. Similarly, for governments, getting unbridled access to someone’s electronic devices could be justified as vital if the circumstances demand it — whether to prevent a possible terror attack or to carry out a drone strike. But what would be worrying is the abuse of such technology and vast mines of data, whether by rogue elements or governments — which is why public safeguards are necessary to prevent any misuse of such unchecked oversight.

Second, simply changing passwords on digital devices might not be adequate as technology gets more sophisticated. Whether it’s a smart refrigerator, programmed lights, a talking TV or the innocuous baby monitor, every minute of our daily existence leaves digital footprints — and it’s all too easy to find them for those who seek. An added concern is the growing apathy and fatigue towards such shocking revelations, since most people have come to accept such intrusion as the inevitable by-product of a digital era. At a political level, the revelations will continue to damage intelligence communities around the world, while highlighting their overarching reach. For businesses, the cost of disruption due to a data breach or hacking are already enormous — and will only continue to climb. For both individuals and conglomerates, the latest leaks should therefore be a time for introspection of our digital priorities and building robust tools to prevent such security risks.

Buzzfeed Caught By Wikileaks Falsifying Information About CIA Hacking Vulnerabilities

Proudly Sponsored by >>>/breakingnewsbackup/

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

In the wake of Wikileaks’ Vault 7 revelations, Buzzfeed has been caught by Wikileaks publishing false claims purportedly made by Apple that it had “patched the vulnerabilities mentioned in the Wikileaks dump of CIA cyber tools.” Wikileaks tweeted that Apple had not fixed any newly discovered vulnerabilities, labelling the claim “fake news.”

Buzzfeed’s phrasing misleadingly encouraged an assumption that Apple had stated all of the vulnerabilities exposed by Vault 7 had been patched. However, the statement by Apple does not claim total coverage.

In Buzzfeed’s own article Apple states: “…our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS…” Apple’s claim merely stated that some of the exploits used by the CIA had been addressed in the event that they were organically discovered.

The factually inaccurate claim comes on the heels of Buzzfeed’s disastrous January 2017 report claiming to have a dossier proving that the Russian government held blackmail on Donald Trump. The dossier was immediately labeled as falsified by Wikileaks based on the inaccurate style, facts and dates contained in the report. The Atlantic also ran a report where Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, denied that he had ever been to either the Czech Republic or to Russia as the “dossier” published by Buzzfeed claimed.

Buzzfeed’s financial records reveal special interest sources of funding and close ties to leading figures in the DNC that further call into question the organization’s dedication to journalistic integrity. Buzzfeed received a $1,500,000 donation in August and September 2016 from Priorities USA Action. Priorities USA Action lists George Soros as one of their main donors. DNC propaganda chief David Brock also sat on the board of Priorities USA Action until 2015, when he resigned in the wake of a New York Times article which called into question Brock’s ties to DNC donor Mary Pat Bonner.

Buzzfeed’s ties to George Soros and other leading DNC figures raise concerns about their commitment to fair and unbiased journalism. Their willingness to run inaccurate information about Wikileaks releases and embarrassment after featuring falsified documents as evidence of political wrongdoing demonstrates that the organization is willing to place agenda before factual reporting. This willingness will likely only create further issues for Buzzfeed, as it and other press groups struggle in the midst of an all time low in public trust of the media.

After Grabbing the Guns, Commiefornia Ready To Outlaw Free Speech!

Lawmakers in California are proposing a harsh new law that will make it illegal for anybody to operate a website that makes controversial political statements to the public.

In a move designed to suppress free speech and eliminate independent media outlets, legislators claim they are attempting to tackle the problem of “fake news” with some of the harshest proposals by any government to-date.

The new bill will curb online media outlets from presenting political views that oppose the liberal consensus in the state, giving authorities the ability to arrest website owners and shut down servers.

Techdirt.com reports: https://archive.is/pX7pK

Ostensibly, the bill is aimed at keeping voters from being misled on issues that affect them. The problem is, this bill would allow the government to determine what is or isn’t misleading and apply to a citizen’s social media posts, blog, etc.

California’s existing “political cyberfraud” law (yes, really) already contains wording that forbids cybersquatting, misleading redirects, and otherwise tricking internet users who are seeking information on ballot measures. The existing law is more concerned with acts along the lines of false impersonation and deliberate fraud. The amendment, however, isn’t. It adds a couple of new aspects, both making the bad law worse.

First, the law would no longer be limited to “cyberfraud” related to pending ballot measures. It would expand to protect political candidates from being bested by wily web denizens. Where it really goes downhill is this new clause, which criminalizes even more speech.

SEC. 2.

Section 18320.5 is added to the Elections Code, to read:

It is unlawful for a person to knowingly and willingly make, publish or circulate on an Internet Web site, or cause to be made, published, or circulated in any writing posted on an Internet Web site, a false or deceptive statement designed to influence the vote on either of the following:

(a) Any issue submitted to voters at an election.

(b) Any candidate for election to public office.

With this law, opinions and misinterpretations of ballot measures/candidates’ political stances are now illegal acts. The law goes further than simply punishing the writer of false statements. It also aims to punish publishers (which could be read as punishing hosts who would normally be protected by Section 230) and anyone who shares the newly-illegal content. If anything in the original post hints of political leaning, it can be construed as “designed to influence the vote,” which would make most heated political discussions a breeding ground for criminal communications.

It would seem the “victims” listed in the proposed amendment aren’t really in need of a free speech-abusing law. If California’s government doesn’t like the tone of online posts about ballot measures, it has plenty of opportunities (and numerous platforms) to set the record straight. Worse, it gives the government the power to shut down speech it doesn’t agree with under the pretense preventing voters from being misled.

As for political candidates, they rarely suffer the problem of having too little speech. Bullshit can be countered with more speech, a rhetorical weapon everyone has access to, but political candidates in particular tend to be especially well-equipped in this department.

How the original law managed to survive a constitutional challenge remains a mystery. This addition has zero chance of being found constitutional if it somehow manages to become law.

It is no longer disputed that the CIA has maintained an extensive and ongoing relationship with news organizations and journalists, and multiple, specific acts of media manipulation have now been documented. But as long as the public continues to ignore the influence of intelligence agencies in shaping or even fabricating news stories, the agency will continue to be able to set the policy that drives the American war machine

Doctor: Sex Traffickers Are Implanting Microchips In Children So They Can Track Them Like Cattle

Sex traffickers in the United States have become so professional that they are now implanting microchips under victims’ skin in order to control and enslave children and young people “like animals.”

Doctors across the country are coming forward and revealing the extent of the problem, recounting horror stories involving sex trafficking victims, and opening up about increasingly common operations to remove RFID microchips that have been implanted under victim’s skin.

These revelations about the extent of human trafficking in the country add weight to President Trump’s claim that there are “horrific, really horrific crimes taking place” and his federal investigation into the elite pedophile scandal involving human trafficking.

Daily Sheeple reports: http://archive.is/kSVV4

If someone walks into a hospital and claims that they’re being tracked, and that they need to have a tracking device removed, there’s a pretty good chance that they’re going to be sent to a mental institution instead. However, according to a doctor who wished to remain anonymous to protect his patient, that very situation occurred last October and it didn’t end how you might expect.

The patient in question was a 28-year-old woman who claimed that she had a GPS tracking device planted in her body. Normally a patient like that would be regarded as crazy, but this woman appeared totally sane, and she had an incision mark on her side. So the doctor decided to check her out anyway. The medical staff at the hospital were stunned when they finally gave her an x-ray.

“Embedded in the right side of her flank is a small metallic object only a little bit larger than a grain of rice. But it’s there. It’s unequivocally there. She has a tracker in her. And no one was speaking for like five seconds — and in a busy ER that’s saying something.”

It turns out that it wasn’t a GPS device, but an RFID chip. “It’s used to tag cats and dogs. And someone had tagged her like an animal, like she was somebody’s pet that they owned.”

In a way, that makes it even creepier than a GPS device. RFID chips have a very short range. To be useful for tracking someone’s position, they would have to be kept confined in an area where the right equipment is in place to send or receive signals from the chip. The doctor would later discover that this woman was a victim of sex trafficking.

Copycat Attempt of Westminster Terror Attack Thwarted in Belgium

A man has been arrested in the north Belgian port city of Antwerp on suspicion of driving at a crowd.

The vehicle, with French number plates, was driven "at high speed" on De Meir, Antwerp's main shopping street. There were no reports of injuries.

The suspect, a man of north African origin, was taken away, Antwerp police chief Serge Muyters said.

"The vehicle was driving at high speed on De Meir. Our army colleagues spotted it and tried to bring the vehicle to a halt," he said.

"But the driver broke free and drove through the red light towards the port quays."

He said the police were contacted and immediately sent a rapid response team, intercepting the vehicle and driver.

Fox News pulls Judge Napolitano over his Trump wiretap claims

Judge Andrew Napolitano, the senior judicial analyst for Fox News, is being kept off the air indefinitely.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano is being kept off the air indefinitely amid the controversy over his unverified claims that British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of former President Obama.

Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.

People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment.

On March 4, President Trump first tweeted the accusation that Obama ordered his “‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory.”

“Nothing found,” Trump tweeted. “This is McCarthyism!”

The tweet has been widely discredited, but last week, Napolitano heightened the controversy — and caused a major embarrassment for Fox News — when he presented a scenario on several programs that backed the accusation.

The former New Jersey Superior Court judge, citing unnamed sources, said that the British foreign surveillance agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, “most likely” provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s recorded calls.

“By bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints,” Napolitano wrote in a column on FoxNews.com.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer cited Napolitano’s charge last week when asked why President Trump continues to stand by his initial claim. The British spy agency sharply denounced Napolitano’s allegations, saying they are “utterly ridiculous and should be ignored."

That rebuttal did not stop President Trump from citing Napolitano as a source again when he was asked about the wiretapping claims at a Friday news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“You shouldn’t be talking to me; you should be talking to Fox News,” said Trump, who described Napolitano as “a very talented lawyer.”

Fox News gives its analysts much more latitude than correspondents and anchors in regard to what they can say on the network.

But Napolitano said on one program that "Fox News has spoken to intelligence community members who believe that surveillance did occur, that it was done by British intelligence.”

Fox News, however, did no such thing, forcing its anchors to walk back Napolitano’s statement.

“Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way,” Shepard Smith told viewers Friday.

In a statement read on the Fox News program “MediaBuzz” on Sunday, Napolitano defended his comments. He said he “reported what the sources told me, reported it accurately and I do believe the substance of what they told me.”

On Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress that he had “no information” supporting Trump’s claims. National Security Director Michael Rogers also refuted Trump’s claim. He testified that the Obama administration did not ask the British agency to spy on Trump — nor would it ever make such a request because it would be “expressly against the construct” of intelligence agreements between the U.S. and its allies.

Cayenne Pepper is a pretty Cool Guy, he stops Heart Attacks, Fights Cancer, and fosters Gut Bacteria

Cayenne Pepper Stops Heart Attacks, Fights Cancer, and Restores Gut Bacteria

Most people don’t believe that a spice can actually fight cancer and reduce risk of heart attacks. But research shows that cayenne pepper can do just that.

This spice has been used for medicinal purposes for many years. And eating small amounts can give you lots of health benefits. Cayenne peppers contain potassium, B vitamins, calcium, and vitamin A and C. According to research it can improve gut health by rebuilding tissues in the stomach and small intestines. It can also be used to treat cancer or increase the effectiveness of other cancer fighting herbs.

Have you ever had a running nose after eating cayenne pepper? That’s because cayenne reduce congestion by warming up the body and opening the sinuses, thus enable mucus to flow.

It’s also worth noting that this herb improves circulation and allows blood to flow in all body parts. And it has also been found to relieve fevers and flu.

In one study, researchers found that capsaicin (the active ingredient in cayenne pepper) kills and hinders growth of pancreatic cancer cells.

Another study also concluded that capsaicin can help fight prostate cancer. Researchers found that it could kill up to 80 percent of cancerous cells in the prostate gland. And there’s still more evidence. A Japanese study found that cayenne can prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells.

You may also want to add cayenne pepper to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight. One study found that consuming 10 grams of this spice can boost metabolism of dietary fats and reduce appetite.

If you want to maintain a healthy heart make sure you eat this spice regularly. Drinking cayenne pepper tea can actually counteract heart attacks and help you recover. To make cayenne pepper tea, simply mix a teaspoon of cayenne with a glass of hot water.

One common traditional use of cayenne pepper was relieving pain. It was used to treat headaches and joint pain. Scientists came to discover that these benefits were experienced due to compound capsaicin. Well, this compound can also keep your gut healthy since it kills parasites in the gut. Drink cayenne pepper tea regularly to keep your gut healthy.

Erdogan: Soon Europeans ‘Will Not Walk Safely on Their Streets’

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has warned the European Union (EU) that if the diplomatic spat between Turkey and several European countries continues, Europeans won’t be able to walk their own streets safely.

President Erdoğan made the comments Wednesday in what is another increase of tensions between Turkey and the EU that began when Germany and the Netherlands banned several Turkish ministers from holding campaign rallies for the upcoming Turkish referendum. Erdoğan has threatened Europe before, but this time he threatened the safety of Europeans if the row continues, Die Welt reports.

“If you continue to behave like this, not a single European, not a single Westerner will be able to take a step on the road safely anytime in the world,” Erdoğan said at a press conference adding: “We as Turkey are calling on Europe to respect human rights and democracy.”

Erdoğan did not go into specifics of the threat, though many Turks living in countries like Germany and the Netherlands have expressed massive support for him following the failed coup attempt last year.

Shortly after the coup, tens of thousands of Turkish expats attended a rally in Cologne, Germany, to express support for Erdoğan. On the night two Turkish ministers were refused entry in the Netherlands earlier in March, hundreds of Turks flooded the streets of Rotterdam and rioted.

Following the actions of the Netherlands, Erdoğan and his government have suspended high-level diplomatic relations with the Dutch and even accused the country of being complicit in the Srebrenica massacre calling them “Nazi remnants“.

Germany has also seen heated rhetoric from Ankara and pro-Erdoğan Turkish press who depicted German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a Nazi on the cover of newspaper Gunes.

Many in Europe are concerned what effect the row will have on the migrant deal made between the EU and Turkey last year. The deal rapidly slowed the number of migrants crossing from Turkey to Greece from hundreds a day to dozens.

The Turks have made it clear that the deal is on the table and have threatened to scrap it and send 15,000 migrants a month to Europe.

Erdoğan said the political bloc can “forget about” the migrant deal and that it is, for all intents and purposes, dead. The Turkish government has threatened the deal before when Ankara became frustrated with the lack of visa-free access to the bloc for Turkish citizens.

More troubling has been a recent report that showed an abnormal increase in the number of migrant arrivals over the past week. Some have attributed the rise in sea landings to improved weather conditions, while others question whether this may be the first signs of the end of the migrant deal.

Russian Spetsnaz/GRU Agents Sabotage Ukrainian Arms Depot - 20,000 Evacuated

Some 20,000 people are being evacuated after a series of explosions at a massive arms depot in eastern Ukraine described by officials as sabotage.

The base in Balakliya, near Kharkiv, is around 100km (60 miles) from fighting against Russian-backed separatists.

The dump is used to store thousands of tonnes of ammunition including missiles and artillery weapons.

Rescue teams are overseeing a huge evacuation effort for people living in the city and nearby villages.

Everyone within a 10km (6 miles) radius of the dump is being evacuated, the Interfax news agency quoted an aide to President Petro Poroshenko as saying.

The authorities are investigating various ways the explosions may have been caused, Defence Minister Stepan Poltorak said, including the possibility of an explosive device being dropped from a drone.

Russian Lawmaker Who Was To Be Key Witness Against Ukraine's Viktor Yanukovich is Shot Dead in Kiev

A former Russian lawmaker and key witness in a treason case against Ukraine's ousted leader Viktor Yanukovich was shot dead in broad daylight outside a hotel in central Kiev on Thursday, police said.

Former MP Denis Voronenkov was killed by an assailant who is now in hospital after being wounded by Voronenkov's bodyguard during the incident, police said.

Voronenkov fled to Ukraine with his wife last year and was helping the Ukrainian authorities build a treason case against former Ukrainian president Yanukovich.

He has also spoken out against Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014, although he voted for the move at the time.

"A cynical murder of one of the witnesses involved in the state's case against ex-president Yanukovich," said Ukraine's General Prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko.

"In broad daylight in the center of Kiev, former Russian lawmaker Denis Voronenkov was shot. He had provided investigators of the military prosecutor's office with highly important (witness) testimony for the case. This was a typical show execution of a witness by the Kremlin."

Zoo sues Russian beauty for molesting and traumatising coon

How, exactly, do you traumatize a raccoon? Well, it would seem that getting it to pose with a topless model for a photo and video shoot would do the trick, according to one zoo in Russia. Yep, you read that right.

A petting zoo in Russia, ironically called Animals Aren’t Toys, is seemingly suing a media company for using their favored raccoon Tomas in a sordid campaign that they claim they knew nothing about. The zoo says that they agreed to let the mammal take part under the illusion that he was to be used in an advert for bed linen, only to discover when the images went online that something slightly more, shall we say, risqué went down.

Since that fateful event, the keepers of Tomas say that he has been “traumatized” by what he was made to do. “Tomas came back withdrawn, always slept in the corner, and snapped at people,” the spokesman for the zoo, Viktor Kiryukhin, said to the Telegraph. Not only that, but the story gets weirder (if that is even possible), as it would also seem that the poor raccoon now has an unhealthy obsession with breasts.

“We think to perform several takes the film crew lured him onto the actress’ chest with treats. Now he thinks he can always expect a treat near women’s breasts,” Kiryukhin continued.

FBI Will Investigate Alleged Pedophile Ring Tied To Local Police Force Youth Program

The FBI has been ordered to investigate a child sex trafficking ring operating within the Louisville Police Department with officers suspected of rape, production of child porn, and human trafficking through a government funded youth program.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer described the alleged sexual abuse of children in the police department’s Youth Explorer program as "our worst nightmare".

Fischer also revealed that former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey had been called in to review the investigation of Louisville Metro Police, including police Chief Steve Conrad, and determine whether “errors were made”.

An integral part of the investigation will be to determine whether the pedophilia ring is localized within the department, or whether it extends and interlinks with other larger networks in the United States.

Mayor Fischer vowed to uncover any evidence of a cover-up of child sex abuse by the police department saying “if there has been an injustice, it will be remedied.”

Courier Journal reports: http://archive.is/vyrqY

Harvey, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2010 as the top prosecutor in the Eastern District of Kentucky and stepped down in January, said he would conduct a “stem-to-stern review” to determine if the investigation was effective and appropriate – and if procedures were not followed, “why not.”

A lawsuit filed last week on behalf of a former Scout identified as N.C. charges that his alleged rape by Officers Kenneth Betts and Brandon Wood was “concealed” by department officials. Betts and Wood are accused of sexually assaulting the former Scout from 2011 through 2013 and recording the incidents to make porn.

The Courier-Journal reported this week that Conrad ended an investigation of alleged "improper contact" between Betts and a teenage girl in the program because Betts resigned in 2014. Wood is still with the force but on administrative assignment.

Conrad told the Courier-Journal on Friday he is "dying" to talk about the allegations but is barred from doing so by a court order sealing the lawsuit. Fischer said he expects the case will be unsealed next week.

The Courier-Journal has filed a motion to unseal the case. The city has also asked that it be unsealed.

Fischer said he first learned about misconduct in the Explorer program last October when he received a heads-up from Conrad that there would be media reports. The mayor declined to comment when asked whether additional police officers or youths were involved, citing a pending criminal investigation by the department’s Public Integrity Unit.

Asked if he still has confidence in Conrad, the mayor initially avoided directly answering the question, saying “what is important is to get to the truth, and I think he agrees with that.” Ultimately, Fischer said he did have confidence in the chief.

Fischer also said Conrad was “aligned” with the decision to hire Harvey, who was retained Friday under a $275-an-hour contract capped at $50,000. Harvey will not have subpoena power but will enjoy the “full power of the mayor,” Fischer said.

The city also will conduct a separate inquiry that will examine all agencies that have programs involving children and teenagers to determine if adequate measures are in place to protect them.

In First 2 Months in Office Trump Reduces Debt by $100 Billion

Obama Increased Debt by $400 Billion In His First 2 Months in Office!

On January 20th, the day of President Trump’s Inauguration, the US Debt stood at $19,947 billion. As of March 16th, the most recent date for US debt reporting, the US Debt stands at $19,846 billion. President Trump has cut the US Debt burden by over $100 billion and 0.5% in the first two months since his inauguration:

http://16004-presscdn-0-50.pagely.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/Trump-Debt-2-mos-575x740.png

By comparison, under President Obama, the US Debt burden increased by more than $400 billion after his inauguration through March 19th 2009, his first two months in office (see link below). Obama increased the US Debt by 3.9% during this time period and signed the trillion dollar ‘Stimulus’ bill which is widely considered a colossal failure and waste of US tax dollars as well. The failed ‘Stimulus’ was the major piece of legislation in Obama’s first year leading to Obama’s first year deficit of $1.4 trillion. Overall Obama doubled the US Debt during his Presidency and set records for highest deficits and the largest debt increase by any President ever.

One month after the Trump Inauguration the US Debt was down $12 billion now it is down $100 billion.

Maddow So BTFO! "Tax Returns May Have Come From The President"

Maddow finally has to admit she was trolled with so-called damning tax return leaks!

RELATED: >>>/crazynews/8

Rachel Maddow said that President Donald Trump’s leaked tax returns she received “might have come from the president himself.”

During the host’s appearance on “The View” Wednesday, “The Rachel Maddow Show” anchor said her first concern when she got the call about from a reporter who had received the president’s 2005 tax return was to make sure it wasn’t a “forgery.”

“My first thought was don’t get pranked,” Maddow told the ladies. “Could this be a forgery? Could this be some sort of..you know make sure this stuff is real, because obviously there is such appetite to learn about his tax returns.”

“He is the only president in 40 years who we don’t have his financial information,” she added. “We gave a tentative yes, we will break it if we can prove that it was real. Then we spent 36 hours trying to get the White House to verify it was real and then they finally did and we went to air.”

View host Sarah Haines questioned Maddow if she thought Trump could have leaked the tax returns.

“It totally could have come from Trump,” Maddow responded. “Which is such a bizarre human drama at the center of this. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing that matters is, is that document real?”

“That’s the story,” she continued. “Because what we need to know is whether the president is conflicted? Whether he’s making policy decisions. Whether he is making personnel decisions that aren’t just for the good of the country that might be benefiting him. That’s why we need to see that stuff.”

“Well we know he gave them to you, because otherwise there would be more pages with real information on them,” Behar interjected.

“We honestly have no idea where it came from,” Maddow said. “It very well might have come from the president himself.”

Modern Sexuality - Depravity by Choice

Now that sex is everywhere, it has low value, sort of like running water. We are learning that sexual liberation means sexual conformity, and because the herd is all doing the same thing, value flees to those who are outsiders and doing something else, like tying sex to family and existential purpose, which makes it more valuable where “liberation” makes it less valuable.

Like all things Leftist, sexual democratization renders worthless something one prized by destroying the best examples of it so that the other examples can feel “equal.” In other words, no one gets what is beautiful; beauty is destroyed so that the average can rule. This is what the fearful and tyrannical human ego does to any segment of experience.

For example, Americans are having less sex because sex is sort of like running water or wi-fi now, i.e. everywhere and without much significance, which cries out for it to be bonded to something larger and more transcendental than what modernity has reduced to a bodily function:

https://archive.is/yVq6r

In other words, sex has become a bargaining chip. People trade it for acceptance in a relationship, and once they are in one, there is no need for a further transaction. The liberation of sex has made everyone into slow-motion prostitutes. And as a result, sex has become a chore like any other job, something done in exchange for money or power and therefore, something undesirable.

This is the nature of all things under egalitarianism. Because society is re-oriented toward a minimum, everything which is not mediocre becomes a commodity, and as the herd chases after it, its value falls as it becomes democratized or spread around. In the end, nothing is worth anything, but each prole can claim they are a king… albeit in an entropic wasteland where nothing has value.

Stephanie says:

The sad reckoning may be on the way. Zika babies seems to be an apt warning and outcome. Sins of the father. Degeneration. Visited upon the innocent.

When kids are seeking to be a different gender, and are encouraged to do so by the ‘adults’ and the ‘experts’, and then anyone who proclaims that an anus is not a vagina and is persecuted for saying so, well, some very bad things are in store for humanity. This should be obvious.

Its going to get worse, much worse, and humanity may not survive. So much for Mars.

Good! Trump Kills UN Climate Change Initiative, Calls It An “Elaborate Hoax”

President Trump has slammed global warming as an elaborate hoax and forced the United Nations to stop making it compulsory for nations to contribute funding to global climate change programs.

G20 officials who met on Friday announced that “climate change is out for the time being” after President Trump dismantled Barack Obama and Angela Merkel’s old blueprint for compulsory financial donations to the cause.

Asked about the cut in funding to global climate change programs, Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s budget director, told reporters “we consider that to be a waste of (Americans’) money.”

“I think the president is fairly straightforward. We’re not spending money on that,” he said.

Instead the money is being poured into long-ignored domestic infrastructure projects, such as the $100 million Flint water crisis solution granted to Michigan by Trump’s EPA last week.

Reuters reports: http://archive.is/2KM30

Opposition from the United States, Saudi Arabia and others has forced Germany to drop a reference to financing programmes to combat climate change from the draft communique at a G20 finance and central bankers meeting.

A G20 official taking part in the meeting said on Friday that efforts by the German G20 presidency to keep the wording on climate change financing had run into resistance.

“Climate change is out for the time being,” said the official, who asked not to be named.

At their last meeting in July 2016 in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 financial leaders said they encouraged all signatories of the Paris Agreement on climate change to bring the deal into force as soon as possible.

But U.S. President Donald Trump, who took office in November, has called global warming a “hoax” concocted by China to hurt U.S. industry and vowed to unpick the Paris climate accord that is supposed to curb rising temperatures.

Poor crazy nog mudslime immigre beaten to death by cop goon with assault gloves:made in Canada

Questions are being raised about reinforced gloves used by Ottawa police following the death of a man last year, and CBC News has learned that an internal police audit of all gloves issued to officers is underway.

Const. Daniel Montsion is facing charges of manslaughter, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon, which were laid last week by Ontario's police watchdog, the Special Investigations Unit.

"When poor cray Abdi is lying on the ground, face down and still, the goon constable who's been charged punches him in the head very violently, twice, and we never see Abdi move again," said Heather Badenoch, one of the few people who have seen an unreleased surveillance video depicting the murder

On July 24, Abdirahman​ Abdi lost vital signs during a confrontation with Montsion and another officer as they attempted to arrest him for allegedly groping people inside a coffee shop. Abdi, who had as yet unspecified mental health issues, was eventually restrained and handcuffed just outside the entrance to his apartment building nearby.

"When we were watching the video … and then those two punches, we gasped, because it was so disproportionate to what was needed. Nothing was needed at that point. He was on the ground, he was face down, he wasn't moving.… [It] didn't make any sense, the level of violence that we saw."

Good! Trump Signs NASA Funding Bill, Sets Goal To Explore Outer Space Again!

Sponsored by >>>/goodnews/

President Trump on Tuesday signed a bill authorizing funding for NASA while setting a new goal to send humans to Mars.

The president signed the bill in the Oval Office flanked by authors and sponsors of the bill, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.)

The law, known as the NASA Transition Authorization Act, gives the space agency $19.5 billion in funding for fiscal year 2018. It also asks the agency to create a plan to send a “crewed mission to Mars in the 2030s.”

Lawmakers also require NASA to create ways to "extend human presence, including potential human habitation on another celestial body and a thriving space economy in the 21st Century.”

NASA is receiving slightly more money than Trump requested in his 2018 budget blueprint. It included $19.1 billion for the agency, which would have been a modest funding cut.

CIA Uses Microsoft DirectX CLSID Exploit As A Keylogger

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

Wikileaks has released a trove of CIA hacking tools that have been highly ignored by the mainstream media. Recent leaks exposed the CIA's capabilities (via planted backdoors) to hack into smart phones, smart TVs, operating systems (from Windows to Linux systems), encrypted apps and even tools to hijack new digitized vehicles!

Now we know that Microsoft has helped the CIA monitor keyboard use by building a backdoor into DirectX registry code!

Keystroke logging, often referred to as keylogging or keyboard capturing, is the action of recording the keys struck on a keyboard, typically covertly, so that the person using the keyboard is unaware that their actions are being monitored.

The Microsoft DirectX library contains a function that can be used to get the state of the keyboard. It is part of the DirectInput API. The code below demonstrates how to poll the keyboard for key state information. Additional logic would have to be added to detect when keys are pressed/released and to convert this to a character.

Note that this requires the Microsoft DirectX SDK to compile.

Ganges River Given Human Rights.

Pajeets favourite river is now the worlds largest toilet slut according to Indian law. Their now national slogan will also be changing to "Dont poo on your waifu."

The mighty Ganges River and its major tributary the Yamuna River now have the same legal rights as a human. The status was bestowed upon the rivers, sacred to hundreds of millions of Hindus, by a court ruling in northern India.

“The rivers have provided both physical and spiritual sustenance to all of us from time immemorial. Rivers Ganga and Yamuna have spiritual and physical sustenance,” wrote the court in their ruling. “They support and assist both the life and natural resources and health and well-being of the entire community. Rivers Ganga and Yamuna are breathing, living and sustaining the communities from mountains to sea.”

The case came to court after complaints were leveled against the states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh that they were not doing enough to set up a government panel aimed at helping protect the Ganges, which is seen as sacred to more than a billion Indians.

Milk: The new symbol of racism in Donald Trump’s America

f you drink milk, you may be a neo-Nazi racist.

No joke.

This week, in the Daily49er, California State University’s college paper staff writer Samantha Diazwrote how milk has become the new symbol of hate.

“You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts,” Ms. Diaz pens.

She continues: “It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and, yes, even our federal dietary guidelines. But how can our health guidelines, a system meant to be built upon scientific fact alone, have racist messages? Where there is a deep-rooted tradition to suppress an entire race’s existence, there’s a way.”

And yes, it all comes down to milk.

“The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health,” Ms. Diaz wrote. “Our current federal dietary guidelines urge people to drink three cups of milk a day, according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The main health benefit of milk is to guard against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens your bones — hence the ‘stronger bones’ rhetoric. While this is a very practical health benefit, osteoporosis affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans.”

Thereby, milk may do a white person’s body good, but it doesn’t a black body, thereby it’s racist.

If you think Ms. Diaz analysis comes out of left field, you’d be wrong. Last month, online news publication Mic.com wrote an article titled: “Milk is the new, creamy symbol of white racial purity in Donald Trump’s America.”

Why you may ask?

Well, because an anti-Trump installation at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City featured a live-stream of neo-Nazis drinking milk by the gallon.

“Amid all the tattoos of Third Reich iconography bouncing around, one thing stood out: The neo-Nazis were all drinking milk,” Mic wrote. “They spat it out as they danced, letting it dribble down their chins.”

It continued: “Some white supremacists think white ethnic identity has a geographic, historical correlation with the body’s tolerance for milk — specifically, the production of the lactase enzyme that allows humans to break down lactose.

On 4chan, the internet’s hate speech hit factory, one anonymous poster laid this thesis out using the following graphic from a study in Nature, showing hotspots of where certain populations have higher milk tolerances,” the online magazine reported.

Oh wow.

But left-leaning news organizations are leaning in on this argument.

Last year, Mother Jones contemplated whether the U.S. dietary guidelines on milk were racist, concluding: “The medical community has yet to frame its questions in ways that investigate whether foods that have been culturally labeled as ‘good for you’ have deleterious consequences for minorities.”

And this month, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, “Get Out” director Jordan Peele explained the link between milk and hate, and how he depicted it in his movie on racial bigotry in the modern age.

In the scene, an actress sits in her bedroom, with her headphones on listening to the theme from “Dirty Dancing,” snacking on Fruit Loops and drinking milk through a straw.

As the Times explains: “Milk, it has been argued of late, is the new symbol of white supremacy in America, owing to its hue and the notion that lactose intolerance in certain ethnicities means that milk-absorbing Caucasian genetics are superior.”

“There’s something kind of horrific about milk,” Mr. Peele told the Times. “Think about it! Think about what we’re doing. Milk is kind of gross.”

So there you have it. Got Milk? Then you’re probably a Nazi. LOL.

George Galloway has vowed to make a return to UK politics and take on corrupt globalists in Parliament by running in the upcoming election.

Galloway, who has previously warned that the American ‘deep state’ are out to assassinate President Trump, is keen to tackle human rights and justice for the people of Palestine as well as bring his brand of plain speaking back to the House of Commons.

Following the death last month of Labour MP Gerald Kaufman, rumors are swirling that Galloway may stand in the by-election for his vacated seat in the Manchester Gorton constituency.

Theduran.com reports: http://archive.is/GSanA

Like Kaufman, Galloway is a long time supporter of Palestine. Perhaps even more importantly at a time when the front-benches of all major UK parties are filled by people whose personalities are small and whose ideas are even smaller, Galloway is an international figure who can command audiences from Baltimore to Beirut, Baghdad to the heart of Britain.

Important issues ought to be discussed by heavyweight people and few would argue that Galloway is difficult to ignore in terms of his refined rhetoric and his ability to tackle the big topics of debate without fear or restraint.

He recently produced a film, The Killing$ of Tony Blair about the personal corruption and war profiteering off his arch-nemesis Tony Blair which he has toured around the world. He also hosts a popular radio show and a weekly current affairs programme on RT.

Galloway has opposed western meddling in Iraq, Libya and now Syria. He opposed independence in his native Scotland and campaigned for the winning Brexit campaign, once sharing a platform with Nigel Farage.

Although Galloway has had a long time friendship with current Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Galloway remains outside of the Labour party ever since Tony Blair expelled him for his strident opposition to the Iraq War, a war which in today’s Britain, hardly any respectable figure could say was a good thing.

Whether one loves him or hates him, politics in any democracy requires figures who can command the respect of an audience and get people to pay attention to the conflicts of the wider world.

George Galloway can certainly do that.

Thank God! Good Riddance! Globalist David Rockefeller Dead at 101

David Rockefeller, a globalist central banker who advocated a “New World Order” and mass population control while wielding vast influence over world leaders, died Monday at the age of 101.

A family spokesman, Fraser P. Seitel, confirmed his passing.

Rockefeller was well-known for openly bragging about the transnational elite’s plans to centralize control over the world’s populations, wealth and resources.

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it,” he wrote in his book Memoirs.

Rockefeller also revealed the extent of corporate media collusion with this gameplan.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years … It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years,” he said at the 1991 Bilderberg meeting. “But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government.”

“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.”

Little of that has changed since 1991; currently, the media outlets Rockefeller mentioned all venomously oppose President Trump.

Even more, the New York Times showered Rockefeller with praise in its obituary:

His stature was greater than any corporate title might convey, however. His influence was felt in Washington and foreign capitals, in the corridors of New York City government, art museums, great universities and public schools.

Mr. Rockefeller could well be the last of an increasingly less visible family to have cut so imposing a figure on the world stage. As a peripatetic advocate of the economic interests of the United States and of his own bank, he was a force in global financial affairs and in his country’s foreign policy. He was received in foreign capitals with the honors accorded a chief of state.

Interestingly, the NYT mentioned Rockefeller’s Memoirs, but didn’t mention his advocation of world government.

David Brock Offers $5 Million for Trump's (COMPLETE)Tax Returns(not the fake 2005 one)

Clinton ally David Brock offered a $5 million reward to anyone who hands over President Trump's "complete" and "legally obtained" tax returns.

"More questions than answers tonight," Brock tweeted as Rachel Maddow discussed the president's 2005 tax return on her MSNBC show Tuesday.

Brock also called for the release of Trump's tax returns during the presidential campaign. He had claimed to have lined up a donor who promised to give $5 million to a veterans charity if Trump released the documents.

Correct the Record, a super PAC founded by Brock, also offered to pay for dirt on Trump.

BOOM! NSA Documents Prove Surveillance of Donald Trump & His Family

BOOM! NSA Documents Prove Surveillance of Donald Trump & His Family

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1873

Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

http://archive.is/K6xPr

https://www.infowars.com/nsa-documents-prove-surveillance-on-donald-trump-and-alex-jones/

Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.

The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.

BOOM! Obama’s NSA Illegally Spied on Radio Talk Show Host Michael Savage

RELATED! TRUMP TARGETED: http:// archive.is/0QPMw

RELATED! ARPAIO TARGETED: http:// archive.is/VMRnl

Talk-radio host Michael Savage is among the public figures who were under surveillance by the National Security Agency as part of its “Project Dragnet,” according to a database revealed by an agency whistleblower.

Jerome Corsi, an investigative reporter for Infowars.com, told Savage on “The Savage Nation” radio show Monday that one of Savage’s email addresses was discovered in the database.

Infowars.com said the database has evidence of spying on U.S. citizens from 2004 to 2010, but Corsi told Savage there is no indication the surveillance has stopped.

It shows Donald J. Trump and Infowars founder Alex Jones also were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.

Infowars.com obtained sections of the database from Michael Zullo, formerly the chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse, a special investigative unit in the office of Joseph Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Project Dragnet was first revealed by news reports in 2005 and further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.

Corsi told Savage he discovered the database included some 50 entries for Donald Trump and his businesses and family members.

“They were all over Donald Trump starting in 2004, when the database starts,” he said.

Corsi said, regarding Savage, that he found two “solid hits” in the database in 2004 and 2005, which was during the time of the George W. Bush administration.

“Anybody who was prominent at that point, the NSA was going after to collect data. And it was not necessarily at the direction of George W. Bush. They were doing it on their own initiative,” Corsi told Savage.

Last Tuesday, as WND reported, the day of the launch of his new book, “Trump’s War: His Battle for America,” Savage was violently attacked at a San Francisco-area restaurant by a man who appeared to have been politically motivated.

In his interview with Corsi Monday, Savage noted that, legally, Americans cannot be spied upon without a judge’s order from a FISA court.

“That’s the way it’s supposed to be,” Corsi affirmed. “But these millions of entries, it’s impossible for me to believe they went to get FISA rulings on any of these.”

Why would the government do this? Savage asked.

“Well, just to have it available. Just in case they decided that they were going to, in any way, go after you or blackmail you, or just create a profile.”

Corsi said a full congressional investigation is necessary, calling it “an enormous, flagrant violation of your rights and everyone in that database, which are millions of Americans.”

BOOM! Obama’s NSA Illegally Spied on Sheriff Arpaio’s Prosecution

RELATED: >>>/aa/21

While the Department of Justice was prosecuting Sheriff Arpaio from 2008 to 2010, the NSA conducted electronic surveillance of the various Arizona judges on the case, on Sheriff Arpaio, and on the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, while the DOJ attorneys for Eric Holder maintained an on-going telephone back-channel discussion with the federal judge assigned to handle the case.

A timeline of the Arpaio civil rights case, created with the assistance of the Operation Dragnet whistleblower and made public in a federal hearing that disseminated the timeline to the public, was provided to Infowars.com, and is reproduced in full here:

http://archive.is/IJHOc

https://www.infowars.com/bombshell-obama-illegally-spied-on-sheriff-arpaios-prosecution/

The timeline released in federal court details NSA electronic surveillance and DOJ judge-tampering in the civil rights case brought against Arpaio in 2008, involving the 2007 arrest of Manuel de Jesús Ortega Melendres, with the DOJ charging Arpaio with discriminating against Hispanics by implementing car-stop procedures DOJ considered to involve racial-profiling.

Infowars.com is currently taking steps to bring this information before the White House, Congress and the DOJ, alleging the Obama administration in prosecuting Sheriff Arpaio has engaged in extensive illegal and unconstitutional electronic surveillance undertaken by the DOJ and NSA working secretly together.

Infowars.com is also concerned DOJ intervened in Sheriff Arpaio’s case, communicating with the judge and various national law firms involved in the case in a pattern that would suggest judge-tampering aimed at insuring Sheriff Arpaio’s conviction.

The case against Arpaio in Arizona was orchestrated from Washington by Tom Perez, a lawyer with a La Raza activist background and the current DNC Chairman, who in 2008 was the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ under Attorney General Eric Holder.

On April 24, Arpaio – aged 84, with a decades-long career in law enforcement that includes 23 years as Arizona’s Maricopa County Sheriff, became the defendant a jury trial, charged with criminal-contempt in the Melendres case and facing the possibility of six months in jail if found guilty.

The timeline alleges NSA electronic surveillance of Federal Judge G. Murray Snow – the judge presiding over the original DOJ civil rights case brought against Arpaio in 2008/2009, when the NSA taped a conversation between the DOJ and Judge Snow, on July 20, 2009.

That day, Judge Snow – a judge known to have made prejudicial comments against Arpaio in public – was assigned to preside in the Arpaio case, after Judge Mary Murguia recused herself five days earlier.

GOP lawmaker: Trump communications may have been 'monitored'

WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the House intelligence committee says President Donald Trump's communications may have been "monitored" during the transition period as part of an "incidental collection."

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told a news conference Wednesday that the communications appear to be picked up through "incidental collection" and do not appear to be related to the ongoing FBI investigation into Trump associates' contacts with Russia. He says he believes the intelligence collections were done legally.

Nunes says the communications of Trump associates were also picked up, but he did not name those associates. He says the monitoring mostly occurred in November, December and January.

Nunes says he learned of the collection through "sources" but did not specify those sources.

Crazed North Korean Despot Kim Jong-un’s Troops Blow Up US Aircraft Carrier

DEADLY REMINDER, OBAMA GUTTED OUR MILITARY: >>>/actualnews/581 (http://archive.is/ylFdm)

KIM Jong-un has released a propaganda video showing a US aircraft carrier being blown up and a bomber shot down in flames.

Snaps from the secretive state’s recent ballistic missile launches are shown alongside the haunting message: “A knife will be stabbed into the throat of the carrier.”

It comes after the leader threatened to reduce the US “to ashes” as tensions with North Korea continue to increase.

The shocking video goes on to declare: “The bomber will fall from the sky after getting hit by a hail of fire.”

Footage also shows the USS Carl Vinson nuclear-powered aircraft carrier up in flames.

It comes after a statement earlier this month warned Donald Trump of nuclear destruction if America fires “even a single bullet” towards Pyongyang.

The statement said: “The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK.”

The North’s KCNA news agency said on Sunday the engine would help the country achieve world-class satellite-launch capability – indicating a new type of rocket engine for an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Lee Jin-woo, deputy spokesman for the South Korean defence ministry, said: “Through this test, it is found that engine function has made meaningful progress but further analysis is needed for exact thrust and possible uses.”

North Korea has declared it is not scared of recent US threats of possible pre-emptive military action to stop its nuclear build-up.

State-run North Korean media reported that the country’s despotic leader had hailed the test as “a new birth” of its rocket industry.

US President Donald Trump told reporters he held meetings on North Korea during the weekend at his Florida resort.

While he did not refer specifically to the rocket-engine test, he said Kim Jong-un was “acting very, very badly”.

CONSPIRACY: Did Trump Issue A Secret Memorandum To Allow Suppressed Free Energy Technologies?

According to secret space program whistleblower, Corey Goode, President Donald Trump issued a highly classified Memorandum soon after his January 20th inauguration ordering the release of group of classified patents concerning anti-aging and health, along with free energy technologies. The Top Secret Memorandum was sent to the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community, and due to its classification status it will not be accessible to major media for reporting.

The information received from Goode comes from a senior official in an interagency secret space program comprising the USAF, NRO, NSA, DIA which he describes as the Military Industrial Complex Secret Space Program (MIC-SSP). The official, whom he calls “Sigmund”, is investigating Goode’s claims and conducting an “information exchange” with Goode in the process (see Part One).

On March 16, Goode briefed me about his ongoing meetings with Sigmund and/or his two subordinates. The information provided by Goode was originally slated for release in an article, “Endgame III”, as the sequel to the popular Endgame II article and video. However due to the urgency of releasing this information without delay, it was passed on to me to get it out now.

In one of his “meetings” with Sigmund (and/or his subordinates) in late January, Goode was told about Trump issuing a Presidential Memorandum to declassify over 1000 patents from a pool of over 5000. Most of the 1000 patents deal with anti-aging and health technologies, yet some deal with material science and biochemistry and a few involve free energy inventions.

These technologies are widely used in a number of secret space programs, and the patents dealing with these have been repressed under national security orders. The USPTO has issued Federal Regulations that govern when patents are classified on the grounds of national security, and subsequently withheld from the general public:

[W]henever the publication or disclosure of an invention by the publication of an application or by the granting of a patent is, in the opinion of the head of an interested Government agency, determined to be detrimental to national security, the Commissioner for Patents at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) must issue a secrecy order and withhold the grant of a patent for such period as the national interest requires. A patent will not be issued on the application as long as the secrecy order is in force. If a secrecy order is applied to an international application, the application will not be forwarded to the International Bureau as long as the secrecy order is in force.

When a Department of Defense entity or a member of the Intelligence Community consider a patent to be a threat to national security, then the Patents Commissioner will issue a secrecy order preventing the patent from being publicly released.

The current number of patents that have been classified are approximately 5700 according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), which matches the information given to Goode by Sigmund.

As the above table shows, the number of secret patents that are declassified each year has averaged roughly 0.5 percent annually.

Goode learned that the Pentagon and Intelligence agencies told Trump it would take 10 years to release them, but Trump told them to get it done within two to three years.

Evidence for Trump taking the bold step of declassifying secret patents as quickly as possible can be found in his inauguration speech. Towards the end of his speech, Trump uttered one sentence that contained his most developed vision of the future for America and its citizenry, which would result from the kind of declassification Memorandum Goode was told about. Trump said:

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

If Trump succeeds in having over 1000 of these declassified over the next two to three years, it would represent 20% of the total. This would be a staggering average yearly increase of up to 2000 percent over previous years.

Good! Ukraine Bars Russian Contestant From Participating in Eurovision Competition

Ukraine has barred Russia's Eurovision contestant because she performed in Crimea, annexed by Moscow in 2014.

Julia Samoilova was banned from entering Ukraine for three years because of her "illegal" visit, the Ukrainian SBU security service said.

Samoilova, 27, has confirmed that she sang in Crimea in 2015. Ukraine is due to host Eurovision in Kiev, in May.

A senior Russian politician, Frants Klintsevich, was quoted by Ria-Novosti news agency as saying Russia would boycott future Eurovision contests if the organisers failed to stand up for the singer.

Some suspect this is precisely what Moscow wanted when it chose Julia Samoilova, knowing that she had travelled to Crimea.

Adding to the howls of outrage here is the fact that the singer being banned has used a wheelchair from childhood and this year the slogan for Eurovision is (((celebrating diversity))).

SUPER DUPER CRAZY! Hillary Clinton May Run Again In 2020

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be running for president again in 2020.

Clinton’s former campaign manager Robby Mook appeared on MSNBC’s “For The Record With Greta” Monday night to discuss the possibility of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Clinton was spotted in Pennsylvania over St. Patrick’s Day weekend, according to host Greta Van Sustern, who suggested that the visit could be related to a 2020 presidential bid.

Mook would not rule out if Clinton was planning to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, but he did say the Clinton camp’s focus is on figuring out the degree to which Russia was involved in the last election cycle.

“I’m going to let her answer for that,” Mook said. “I think what happens right now, we’ve got to get to the bottom of what happened in 2016 then we can start worrying about the next cycle. But we’ve got to make sure that this cannot happen again in two years or four years to anybody else.”

Trump made it known Saturday on Fox News that he would relish the opportunity to run against Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2020. “That would be a dream come true,” the president said. “I think she would lose so badly.”

David Brock’s Shareblue will impeach ComrADE MANCHIRIAN TRAITOR TRUMP;time is on his side&Trump'sego

David Brock, the Democratic operative who founded the left-wing Media Matters for America, plans to use a news entity he recently purchased as the nucleus of his efforts to delegitimize President Donald Trump, according to confidential documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Brock spent this past weekend gathered with more than 100 deep-pocketed Democratic donors at the posh Turnberry Isle resort in Aventura, Fla., to map out a course to "kick Donald Trump's ass." The Free Beacon obtained the memo at the donor retreat.

The 44-page confidential memo shows how Brock seeks to defeat Trump through impeachment by using American Bridge, his Super PAC, as the primary vehicle.

Shareblue's full editorial priorities are listed as the following:

Calling out signs of authoritarianism and kleptocracy. Championing voices who have been right to warns us.

Nonstop coverage of the influence of Vladimir Putin and Russia on Trump and his administration.

Exposing Trump as a weak, thin-skinned "loser" vulnerable to goading.

Relentlessly beating the drum that he has no mandate, lost the popular vote, and is the least popular president-elect in modern American history.

Exposing the insidious role of Mike Pence, who is replicating the right-wing governance ideology he inflicted in Indiana.

Demystifying Trump's "conflicts of interest" and calling them what they are: Subversions of the nation's interests.

Spotlighting the Trump administration's vast ties to white nationalists and the ways in which they explicitly empower white supremacy.

Tracking and fighting back against odious GOP legislation in Congress.

Following SCOTUS nominations/appointments/major cases.

Morale-boosting coverage of the grassroots opposition and resistance efforts outside the beltway.

Positive coverage of Democrats who boldly call out Trump and aggressively work against him. Pressure of Democrats who hold him accountable.

Fighting outrage fatigue

Soros' Media Matters Writes Hit Piece Against.... Us, Yes, Us!

GEORGE SOROS IS ANGRY OVER ONLINE ANONYMOUS MESSAGE BOARDS LIKE 8CHAN!

Online message boards that allow anonymous posting – including 4chan, 8chan, Reddit, and AnonIB – tend to make headlines mainly when users illegally share private photos of high-profile women. But such photo sharing is just part of the relentless abuse that these sites constantly allow and enable.

On a daily basis, users of these message boards target women, people of color, activists, members of the media, and vulnerable communities like undocumented immigrants by orchestrating online harassment campaigns, which can involve illegal activities like hacking and publishing personal information and images. The sites are often also the origin of unsubstantiated speculation, which can make its way to fake news purveyors and hyperpartisan blogs that push misinformation, sometimes causing dangerous real-life consequences.

The actor Emma Watson was one of the victims of a recent illegal photo-sharing scandal, in which alleged personal photos were widely circulated on Reddit and 4chan. Weeks before, reports had revealed that members of the armed forces were involved in sharing “nude photographs of women, including fellow Marines – some taken without their knowledge” through the anonymous posting site AnonIB, which was also implicated in the publication of hacked personal photos of a number of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, in 2014.

The cases involving celebrities and members of prominent military institutions are widely reported, but their treatment is just one part of the picture. These sites enable victimization of other individuals on a daily basis – often as part of orchestrated and politically motivated harassment campaigns. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston was the victim of doxxing – the publication of personal information like phone numbers and addresses with the intent of enabling intimidation and harassment – on 8chan following his reporting on President Donald Trump’s 2005 tax documents. Anonymous users on 4chan organized an effort to target undocumented immigrants, encouraging others to trick Twitter users into outing themselves as undocumented so they could “report” them to the authorities for deportation. Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, who has been repeatedly defamed on these sites, was recently smeared on 4chan as an “Islamist using the flag of feminism to subvert western women and entice them into supporting sharia law.”

The forums have also been at the epicenter of unsubstantiated speculation that has been weaponized by fake news purveyors, in some cases with dangerous real-life consequences and negative impact on real people.

While women aren't the only victims, misogyny is perniciously at the center of many of the posts on these forums. As reported by Gawker, message boards like 4chan, 8chan – which was launched as a response to perceived censorship on 4chan and became a similar, but more anarchic, platform – and AnonIB serve as a sanctuary where “angry, anonymous young men can dance out their anger against women.”

NO SHIT! Obama's 'Catch And Release' Amnesty Policy Allowed Rape Suspects Into the US

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

Yet another example that the globalists HATE America and intend to subjugate us!

An alleged rapist was delivered from Central America to a school hallway in Maryland by former President Barack Obama’s policy of treating economic migrants as if they were victims of crime, said an expert on illegal immigration.

“The only reason the older youth, Sanchez Milian, was in the country at all was because of the Obama administration’s catch and release policies that allowed him to be resettled in Maryland (with the support of taxpayers), with few questions asked,” the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News.

“Few groups of illegal immigrants have left such a violent mark in our community as these so-called unaccompanied minors—they are almost like modern day Marielitos (the Cuban inmates released by Fidel Castro decades ago),” she said. “Dozens have been arrested for violent crimes in Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Virginia and Texas.”

Police arrested two illegal alien suspects, 18-year-old Henry E. Sanchez Milian and 17-year-old Jose Montano, on Thursday after staff at Rockville High School in Maryland reported a sex attack on a 14-year-old freshman who had just escaped her alleged assailants. Sanchez Milian is a citizen of Guatemala.

Border patrol agents encountered him in Texas in August as he crossed from Mexico into the U.S., according to WTOP.com.

Obama regime policy required he be issued a notice to appear before an immigration judge for a hearing, and in the meantime, Sanchez Milian was free to roam around as he pleased. Despite his age, he was permitted to enroll in a public high school as a freshman.

According to a detective’s interview with the victim that same day, Sanchez Milian and Montano allegedly raped her orally, vaginally, and anally while bending her across a toilet in a boy’s bathroom stall, sometimes simultaneously. The victim repeatedly cried out in pain and begged them to stop throughout the savage attack. A forensic specialist found blood and bodily fluids in the boy’s bathroom after the victim reported the alleged rape.

List Of Android Devices Found Containing CIA Malware

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2003

LEARN ABOUT OPSEC: >>>/opsec/4

A list of malware infected Android devices has been released, after a commercial scanner found instances of malware preinstalled on 38 devices.

The find comes just days after WikiLeaks revealed that the CIA routinely hacked smartphones, infecting them with Malware in order to spy on the American public.

According to a blog published on Friday by Check Point Software Technologies, malicious code was found preinstalled on various Android devices that had not be put there by the original phone manufacturers.

Marygreeley.com reports: http://archive.is/1FKCf

In six of the cases, the malware was installed to the ROM using system privileges, a technique that requires the firmware to be completely reinstalled for the phone to be disinfected.

“This finding proves that, even if a user is extremely careful, never clicks a malicious link, or downloads a fishy app, he can still be infected by malware without even knowing it,” Check Point Mobile Threat Researcher Daniel Padon told Ars. “This should be a concern for all mobile users.”

Most of the malicious apps were info stealers and programs that displayed ads on the phones. One malicious ad-display app, dubbed “Loki,” gains powerful system privileges on the devices it infects. Another app was a mobile ransomware title known as “Slocker,” which uses Tor to conceal the identity of its operators.

The infected devices included:

Galaxy Note 2

LG G4

Galaxy S7

Galaxy S4

Galaxy Note 4

Galaxy Note 5

Galaxy Note 8

Xiaomi Mi 4i

Galaxy A5

ZTE x500

Man, 98, Survived Lung Cancer WITHOUT Any Chemo For 30 Years... Just By Eating Healthy!

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/43

When Greek native Stamatis Moraitis was living in the United States, he was diagnosed with lung cancer and told he had just nine months to live. At the time, he was in his mid-sixties.

Here's a glimpse at his timeline, but don't worry about breaking out a box of tissues: six months into his journey, he started feeling significantly better. Twenty five years later, when he went to visit his U.S. doctors during a trip from his native Greek Island, Ikaria, he learned that his doctors had died. Today, he's living life to the fullest as a vibrant 98-year old.

Fresh, healthy foods key to combating cancer

His secret? In addition to surrounding himself with loving relationships with friends and family and getting plenty of exercise, he plants foods in his own garden and tends to his olive grove daily. He is cancer-free, simply because of the lifestyle he lives in Greece, and his choice to shun chemotherapy, drugs or any kind of therapy.

Mind-body medicine physician and founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute training program, Dr. Lissa Rankin fully believes that people can learn from Moraitis. She suggests taking a cue from people like him who have lived long, healthy lives, especially in the face of a life-threatening illness.

One of her top suggestions is to "Eat plants, avoid animal products, consume lots of olive oil, avoid processed foods . . . " and to stay surrounded by like-minded people.

Best foods to help fight lung cancer

While most fresh fruits and vegetables have nutrients that are good for the body, certain ones in particular stand out when it comes to fighting off lung cancer.

According to the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people who ate apples regularly had a 60 percent lower risk of lung cancer compared to those who did not consume the flavonoid-rich fruit.

Other foods linked to lung cancer prevention include cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage and broccoli.

Olive oil, a large part of a Mediterranean diet, has also been shown to reduce the risk of cancers ranging from colon cancers to breast cancer. Consumption of extra-virgin olive oil daily can essentially deactivate cancer cells that try to survive and destroy the body. It's been shown effective in keeping a range of cancers at bay, from breast cancers to stomach cancers.

Never-Before-Seen Behavior Of Chimp Brushing Dead Son's Teeth -Can monkees be sad like humans?

In a new study, biologists have documented the bizarrely intimate behavior of a chimp using a tool to clean the teeth of a corpse group member (video below). Not only does this provide researchers with further insight into the emotional intelligence of apes, but it could shed light on the evolutionary origins of humans ritualizing death.

>Scientists from the University of St Andrews in Scotland captured the behavior for the first time at Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage Trust in Zambia. They watched as Noel, a wild-born female chimpanzee, came across the dead body of her adopted son Thomas. Their study in Nature Scientific Reports details how she approaches him and sits down beside his head almost immediately after seeing the body. She then selects a blade of hard grass from the ground, opens Thomas’ mouth, and appears to clean his teeth with the grass.

The behavior is all the more strange because the researchers note they had not seen any of the chimps at Chimfunshi perform tool-assisted teeth cleaning during their 8,000 hours of observation.

Transgender rapist moved to women's prison after sex change

A rapist has been moved to a women-only prison after having gender reassignment surgery to become female.

Jessica Winfield, formerly known as Martin Ponting, was relocated to HMP Bronzefield in Ashford, Surrey.

The convicted rapist was previously held at top security Whitemoor prison in Cambridgeshire, where she was serving a life sentence.

Before her gender reassignment, Winfield complained of being victimised for being a male transsexual.

Ten years ago, she wrote to prisoners' newspaper Inside Time to say she was given a "hard time because of my sexuality, possibly through lack of understanding and empathy".

At the time she wrote: "I have changed my name to that of a female to prove to the authorities and everyone concerned that I am very serious about my gender and that I do not feel right being a man."

News written by AI for You!

The simple truth is I’ve learned from doing BL, and from studying sites over the last year, that two types of websites exist for news. The first type and more common one are sites genuinely just geared for making money. This type has several different classes. The first class is made of more legitimate sites focused on making money that don’t put out outright lies, but they don’t give you real world news. I remember when I was in high school on a trip to Montauk and I wanted to watch TV to see if Congress was going to pass the Cap & Trade law, but just sat there and watched four days of Fox, CNN & NBC focused on Michael Jackson’s death. They won’t let people get smart news or know the real things in life. It’s just for the simple reason that people are total and complete idiots who would rather know the mom from the Brady Bunch died in 2016 over bother to learn who the hell Fidel Castro was and what that idiot prime minister in Canada said about him.

The next category in for-profit news is clickbait which is basically the same story recycled 40x and it is just dumb stuff. It’ll basically talk about some really random piece of a story no one cares about and has no real meaning on anything at all. It’s harmless, but most sites just do it.

The next thing is fake news. This is when morons post something from NaturalNews.com, Breitbart post the death of Andrew Brietbart and basically the vast majority of websites geared for leftist, conservatives and libertarians, and somehow other morons share it. They’ll have total BS stories on Obama being born in Kenya, stuff Justin Bieber said that they claim Donald Trump tweeted, mountains of fake news and claims some scam supplement cures diabetes. All total BS and I’m glad Facebook is trying to at least talk about getting rid of it. However, the news is never going to tell you anything about important issues and it’s likely only getting worse from here.

That is the for-profit news, but the other type of news is basically people such as myself: assholes who just love to never shut the hell up. I write genuinely due to having an opinion and for it to go viral. People such as myself write for the following reasons:

The odd desire to feel important

The desire to be a complete asshole

The desire to lie to the public

The desire to write something terribly generic and use it to feel special

The desire to boost a resume

Good! Trump Listens To RINOcare Critics, Says There Will Be Some Changes, Will Be Fixed!

RELATED CONCERN: >>>/badnews/21

NO OBAMACARE LITE PROMISES MR. TRUMP!

House Republican leaders announced proposed changes to their health care overhaul late Monday in an effort to shore up support from the GOP's rank-and-file ahead of an expected floor vote later this week.

The bill's 43-page "manager's amendment" is aimed at placating Republicans unhappy that nonpartisan analysts said the legislation would drive up costs for older people.

The amendment was unveiled hours after President Donald Trump told a rally in Louisville, Ky., that he wasn't wedded to the current version of the bill.

"We're going to negotiate. And it's going to go to the Senate and back and forth," he said, assuring that the "end result is going to be wonderful and it's going to work great."

The measure would pave the way for the Senate, if it chooses, to make the bill's tax credit more generous for people age 50 to 65. Details in the documents released were unclear, but one GOP lawmaker and an aide told the Associated Press that the language sets aside $85 billion over 10 years for that purpose.

The measure would also accelerate the repeal of tax increases on higher earners, the medical industry and others to this year instead of 2018. It would be easier for people to deduct expenses from their taxes, and older and disabled Medicaid beneficiaries would get larger benefits.

It would also curb future Medicaid growth and let states impose work requirements on some recipients.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the amendment was the result of an "inclusive approach" involving the White House and congressional Republicans.

"With the president’s leadership and support for this historic legislation, we are now one step closer to keeping our promise to the American people and ending the Obamacare nightmare," the Speaker said in a statement.

Trump will meet with Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill to discuss the legislation Tuesday morning. The House Rules Committee is expected to review the legislation Wednesday.

Putin Adversary Magnitsky's lawyer escapes death after 'falling' from building near Moscow

A lawyer for the family of Sergei Magnitsky, the lawyer whose death in 2009 sparked a crisis between Russia and the West, has been badly injured.

(((Russian media))) say Nikolai Gorokhov fell from the fourth floor when a rope snapped as he and others tried to lift a bath into his house near Moscow.

He was flown to hospital by helicopter, a medical source was quoted as saying.

However, British businessman Bill Browder, for whom Mr Magnitsky worked, said he had been "thrown".

According to a press release released by a website linked to Mr Browder, Law and Order in Russia, Mr Gorokhov was due to appear in an appeals court in Moscow on Wednesday to contest its refusal to investigate allegations of organised crime.

Mr Magnitsky died in prison after revealing alleged fraud by state officials.

FASCIST COMMUNISM! Conservative Journalist Convicted for Self Defense Against BLM Thugs

It's not only the Russians and Chinese that suppress free speech and the right to self defense!

THE SUBVERSIVE OBAMANATION HAS TAKEN OVER THE COURT SYSTEM!

A conservative video journalist and blogger, who drew his legal handgun to scare off a rampaging crowd during a recent protest in Portland, has been convicted of felony charges.

A recent court decision involving a political activist’s attendance at a Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest last summer demonstrates just how tyrannical America has become in an era of political correctness, hostility toward the Second Amendment, and a glorification of minorities and leftist activists.

In Portland, Ore., Michael Strickland, a 37-yearold conservative blogger, journalist, and activist who maintains the popular YouTube channel “LaughingAtLiberals,” was recently found guilty of 21 felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from his presence at a BLM protest in early July of last year.

Strickland, known for his coverage of radical leftist events, was filming a BLM protest in downtown Portland on the evening of July 7 when he was confronted by a large group of hostile BLM protesters, some of whom were masked, armed with flag poles, and making threats against Strickland while advancing toward the citizen-journalist.

It must be noted that radical leftist protesters, often masked, violently assaulted their political opponents—and even innocent bystanders—repeatedly throughout the 2016 election season, causing personal injury and private property damage on numerous occasions. Additionally, BLM protests often devolve into riots, where violence, looting, and destruction take place on a massive scale.

Fearing for his safety and being completely outnumbered, Strickland briefly drew his Glock semiautomatic handgun to ward off the hostile crowd that was hounding him. Amateur video footage of the protest and confrontation shows Strickland retreating while being pursued by a group of BLM protesters before eventually brandishing his firearm, for which he had a legal concealed carry permit, only to quickly reholster his weapon after the situation was de-escalated and the crowd backed off.

“What happened was there were about 10 or 12 people that surrounded me,” Strickland explained at the time. “They started pushing and shoving me. They were using their flag staffs as weapons. I’m backing up, they kept coming toward me. . . . That’s why I drew. . . . I was outnumbered, they were pushing and shoving me. . . . I feared for my life, because I was outnumbered, and they had weapons.”

Shortly after the confrontation, a SWAT team arrived and Strickland was apprehended and taken into custody, charged with menacing and disorderly conduct.

At Strickland’s recent trial, Judge Thomas Ryan found the conservative activist guilty of 10 counts of unlawful use of a weapon, 10 counts of menacing, and one count of second-degree disorderly conduct for brandishing his legally concealed firearm at protesters that fateful evening.

While Strickland argued he was acting in self-defense, prosecutors contended he did not have a legitimate fear of being in imminent danger or of being physically hurt.

Strickland is scheduled to be sentenced in May.

The reaction to Strickland’s conviction from Second Amendment and free speech activists has been justifiable outrage.

“Given all the violence that we’ve seen at Black Lives Matter and other leftist demonstrations, Strickland clearly had cause to fear for his life,” Chris Cantwell, a leading libertarian and gun rights activist, writer, and host of “The Radical Agenda,” a popular podcast, recently explained to AFP in an email exchange.

GCHQ slaps down White House claims of Trump Tower wiretapping claims as 'utterly ridiculous'

Britain's intelligence and security organisation has dismissed claims, suggested by the White House, that it helped Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump as "nonsense" in an incredibly rare public statement.

Sean Spicer, Mr Trump's press secretary, repeated a claim on Thursday evening – initially made by an analyst on Fox News - that GCHQ was used by Mr Obama to spy on Trump Tower in the lead-up to last November's election.

In a break from its normal practice of refusing to comment on allegations about its activities, a spokesman for GCHQ said: "Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct 'wiretapping' against the then president elect are nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored."

Mr Spicer had earlier repeated claims that Barack Obama used GCHQ to spy on Mr Trump before he became president.

"He’s able to get it and there’s no American fingerprints on it," Mr Spicer said of the intelligence supposedly provided to Mr Obama by Britain.

"Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ."

Shocking new pro-vaccine study finds that flu shots barely work at all in people over age 50

A recent study published in the journal Vaccine has shown that vaccine effectiveness can vary widely based upon the age of the patient. The research intended on demonstrating the efficacy of pandemic flu vaccines, but instead revealed something far more telling: vaccines are not useful for those that are generally considered to be some of the most vulnerable people in our population.

>Even the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is well aware of this dichotomy: The agency notes that vaccines work best in healthy adults and children, and writes, “Older people with weaker immune systems often have a lower protective immune response after flu vaccination compared to younger, healthier people. This can result in lower vaccine effectiveness in these people.

This recent study, which was a multinational collaborative effort that was led by researchers from the University of Nottingham, has shown that adults over the age of 50 were substantially less likely to obtain any benefit from vaccination. Vaccines containing an adjuvant — an additive intended to provoke the immune system — actually displayed the least degree of benefit. The researchers posit that this reduced efficacy may be due the fact that adults are more likely to already have developed antibodies to a similar strain of the flu virus, which they note also corresponds to a lower rate of flu virus infection within the age group.

The finding goes along with previous research that has demonstrated vaccines have very little to offer older populations — despite the widespread belief that vaccines are always effective for everyone.

Good! Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Ousts UN Official to Protect Israel From Criticism

Trump Administration Ousts UN Official to Protect Israel From Criticism

On Wednesday, a U.N. agency published a report noting that “Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.” Yesterday, the author of that report, who has served as executive secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNESCWA) since 2010, Rima Khalef, resigned after the Trump administration, working in conjunction with Israel, pressured the U.N. secretary-general to demand that she withdraw the report.

Khalef, a Jordanian national who has served in multiple high government positions, refused the demand to repudiate her own report, instead choosing to resign. The report — which was co-authored by the Jewish American Princeton professor and former U.N. official Richard Falk, a longtime critic of Israeli occupation — has now been removed from the UNESCWA website.

What makes this event most remarkable is how unremarkable the report’s conclusion is: It’s a point that a former Israeli prime minister — as well as Trump’s own defense secretary — has made unequivocally. Back in 2010, Ehud Barak, Israel’s former prime minister and its most decorated soldier, explicitly warned that Israel was on a path to what he called a permanent “apartheid” state. As he put it: “As long as in this territory west of the Jordan river there is only one political entity called Israel it is going to be either non-Jewish, or non-democratic. If this bloc of millions of ­Palestinians cannot vote, that will be an apartheid state.”

Seven years later, Israel is indisputably committed to exactly that outcome. Many of its key ministers do not even support a two-state solution. Israeli expansion of illegal settlements continues unabated. Palestinians are further away than ever from full political rights, or even enjoying the right of democratic self-determination. As Barak himself pointed out, this is the very definition of apartheid.

Yet now, thanks to the Trump administration’s self-destructive devotion to Israeli interests — an odd posture for a president who ran on a platform of “Putting America First” — it is impermissible for U.N. officials to note this reality lest Israel be offended. In its report on the ouster of Khalef, CNN was surprisingly blunt about what this all means:

Memo to critics of Israel inside the U.N. system: Prepare to pay a price. … The U.S. under Trump has made it quite clear it will defend Israel perhaps more than all other countries at the U.N.

Early on his campaign, Trump issued controversial positions about Israel, including his statement that the U.S. should be “neutral” in the Israel-Palestine conflict and his proclaiming his immunity to AIPAC influence. But, as I noted last July, once he secured the nomination, he quickly switched to the standard pro-Israel line, beginning with his Jared Kushner-written AIPAC speech, and then went even beyond U.S. orthodoxy on Israel by explicitly endorsing expansion of Israeli settlements.

Since his inauguration, all signs indicate Trump will be an inflammatory fanatic when it comes to U.S. support for Israeli aggression, even at the expense of U.S. interests. He nominated a pro-settlement extremist to be his ambassador to Israel. He has repeatedly suggested that his son-in-law Kushner, whose family has long supported extremist settlements, will be his key envoy in the region. And he even appeared to abandon the long-standing U.S. rhetorical commitment to a two-state solution (a commitment it long ago abandoned in action), before his administration re-affirmed it.

Trump convinced millions of people to vote for him by promising to prioritize American interests over those of other nations. Yet what Trump is doing at the U.N., and in the Middle East more broadly, is exactly the opposite. He is empowering exactly the ideologues who have long venerated a defense of the Israeli government over all other considerations — not just the human and political rights of Palestinians but also the concrete security interests of the U.S.

Israel only country to escape proposed State Department budget cuts

WASHINGTON — Israel would be the only country to escape the Trump administration's proposed deep cuts in foreign aid, the State Department said Thursday.

The proposed budget from the White House includes slashing the State Department budget by up to a third, cuts that would mostly target climate change, democracy promotion and health programs, and numerous foreign aid projects.

In all, $17.3 billion would be cut from the State Department budget, which is about $50 billion. Congress is highly unlikely to approve the White House proposal, however, so the impact is still unknown.

Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman, said U.S. aid to Israel, which totaled about $3.1 billion this year, would not be touched under the Trump plan. Israel gets more U.S. aid than any other nation.

Aid to every other country will come under review, he said.

Egypt is the largest second largest recipient of U.S. aid, a payment that has helped maintain peace between Egypt and Israel since the Jimmy Carter presidency.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, speaking Thursday in Tokyo, said he accepted the administration's budget plan and was confident the State Department could find more efficient ways to work with less money.

Tillerson said he thought overseas conflicts that the U.S. has been involved in would diminish, easing the demands on State.

Toner said Tillerson, the former CEO of the ExxonMobil oil giant, would use "resources the right way, and personnel the right way, in order to ensure that the mission is being accomplished."

Numerous members of Congress, along with advocacy organizations, spoke out Thursday against the proposed cuts to the State Department.

"Slashing our international engagement by even a fraction of (the amount proposed), at a time when we're facing serious challenges around the world, would be an absolute disaster," said Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Congress Considers Splitting The 9th Circuit

The most liberal court in America could be heading for a split.

A House panel held a hearing on possibly splitting the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Thursday morning. The 9th Circuit is recently serving as the primary antithesis to President Donald Trump.

Three 9th Circuit judges, including Chief Judge Sidney Thomas, Judge Alex Kozinski, and Judge Carlos Bea gave testimony before House Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet. All three judges, like most of their 9th Circuit colleagues, support the current configuration and oppose splitting the court.

The subcommittee’s chairman, Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, said the court has become too unwieldy to operate efficiently. At 12,000 cases, the court hears twice as many appeals as the next largest circuit court per year. The court also has the largest geographic jurisdiction in the country, running as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far south as Arizona’s Grand Canyon. Fully one-fifth of the country’s population sits in the 9th Circuit. As such, the court’s massive docket generates lengthy turnaround times in decisions and can make access to the courts challenging for average citizens.

The sprawling 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was split into two appeals courts in 1981 over similar concerns. Alabama, Georgia, and Florida were removed from the 5th Circuit and reestablished as the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Issa pointed out that the legislation was adopted quickly in both houses of Congress with unanimous consent.

Democrats on the subcommittee argued that the administrative and logistical concerns Republican lawmakers raised were little more than a thin veneer masking their ideological hostility to the court.

“Like clockwork we see proposals to split the 9th Circuit whenever it hands down decisions with which conservatives disagree,” said Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler.

“The 9th Circuit has long been in the sights of Republican politicians,” he added.

Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan was more circumspect.

“I will not speculate why there has been such an interest among my conservative colleagues about splitting the 9th Circuit,” he said.

JUSTICE RETURNS! Two Government-run (CPS) Child Trafficking Rings Busted, Mainstream Media Silent

Two high-level government pedophile rings were recently busted amid a total media blackout by the mainstream press.

As western media outlets continue to attempt to debunk and discredit any notion that elite pedophile rings could exist, new reports suggest that high-level government pedophilia not only exists – but it has become the norm.

In the North Bengal region of India, a child welfare officer has become the seventh person to be arrested by the State’s Criminal Investigative Department (CID) for operating a child-trafficking ring. According to The Hindu, “The CID had unearthed the child trafficking racket during raids at homes and nursing homes in Baduria area of North 24 Parganas district, in Behala in the southern fringes of Kolkata and some other parts of south Bengal in November last year.”

Activistpost.com reports: http://archive.is/vxjR4

Abortion clinics in the area were convincing mothers to give birth to their children in exchange for money ranging between $1,400 and $4,500 USD. Other birthing centers told mothers their children were stillborn, when they weren’t, allowing the clinic to steal the babies for sale on the black market. The children were transported in bread baskets to nursing homes in the area where they would remain until they were sold into servitude, as sex slaves, or brothels.

“It is a huge network of NGOs, nursing homes, doctors and middlemen dealing in illegal adoption and baby trafficking that the police have busted. Our men are now building on the huge leads they have already got in this case,” Rajesh Kumar, CID’s Additional Director General told the press. Additionally, investigators believe foreigners were buying the children. Currency from other countries was found at the same time the children were discovered. Several corpses and skeletons of infants were also unearthed in the raided businesses.

Child trafficking is on the rise in the U.S. In 2006, a woman living in North Carolina, Mercedes Farquharson, fled the country when it was discovered she’d been using two young girls as house slaves, forced to farm the land, and do all the household chores, along with cooking and cleaning. In 2009, she was arrested in Bulgaria, where she’d fled to escape justice.

The trafficking of children isn’t limited to lowly child-protective service workers either. Hama Amadou, an opposition leader in the Sahel state of Niger was sentenced to one year in prison for providing babies to Niger’s elite society. “Prosecutors claim that Amadou was one of a group of people accused of smuggling babies from Nigeria via Benin to wealthy couples in Niger by falsely claiming the parenthood of around 30 children,” according to Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany’s international newsgroup. Childlessness is Niger is looked down upon, so one way the elitists solved their own infertility problem was to take someone else’s child as their own.

DW described what happened after they acquired a child, “At the turn of the last decade, Niger’s elite went through a baby boom. Women who had been childless for years were suddenly celebrating the birth of their first child.” The miraculous blessings of motherhood reportedly came at the expense of someone else’s presumably stolen, purchased, or seized baby. Amadou was tried in absentia and his lawyer says the allegations are politically motivated.

Closer to home, Child Protective Services, as TFTP has consistently reported, is authorized to kidnap children at will, and place those children in foster care homes. The government’s own agency charged with protecting children, routinely displaces babies, children, and adolescents away from their parents in order to supposedly protect those children.

Many of those same CPS workers are abusers as well, who sometimes place those kidnapped children in the homes of sexual predators, where they are routinely victimized. The terrorist organization evokes fear in the hearts of so many parents. The power CPS possesses is legally unmatched in all of society.

Reddit thinks it can break your echo chamber (no seriously)

After the referendums and elections of 2016, concern over online echo chambers grew - the idea that we were getting shielded from a wide range of views because of who we chose to be friends with online.

Could Reddit offer a solution?

At 280 million active monthly users, the link-sharing site is already a phenomenally influential force on the internet.

The site allows you to post links that are then either up or down voted by other users. Upvoted content is given more visibility - and potentially millions of hits - and the downvoted stuff falls away and barely gets seen by anyone.

As well as the "front page" that shows the most popular content, adjusted slightly according to your own tastes, the site also has "subreddits", smaller sections devoted to a particular topic. This system makes it the ideal place to discover views different to your own, said co-founder Alexis Ohanian in an interview with the BBC.

"It's a community that's not defined by social connection," he said following a talk at the South by SouthWest (SXSW) Interactive festival in Austin, Texas.

Mike Pence Responds To Julian Assange Accusations About Whitehouse Take Over

RELATED: >>523753

Vice President Mike Pence responded on Tuesday to tweets from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, denying what he called "absurd" allegations that intelligence officials are plotting a takeover of the presidency.

"Clinton stated privately this month that she is quietly pushing for a Pence takeover," Assange tweeted Tuesday. "She stated that Pence is predictable hence defeatable."

Assange continued: "Two [intelligence] officials close to Pence stated privately this month that they are planning on a Pence takeover. Did not state if Pence agrees."

Pence told the conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that Assange's allegations were "absurd" and "frankly offensive."

"It is the greatest honor of my life to serve shoulder-to-shoulder with the 45th president of the United States," Pence said. "To see his leadership every day, to see the compassion that he has for the American people every day. I would dismiss that out of hand and tell you that I'm just — I'm so excited about the progress that we've been made strengthening this country, protecting this country, reviving this country's economy, and all credit goes to President Donald Trump."

Assange responded to Pence's remarks.

"It should be noted that both the officials close to Pence and Hillary Clinton spoke of moving towards an 'impeachment' not other action," he tweeted.

Before the presidential election, Assange's WikiLeaks released emails from John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman. Some pundits have said that contributed to Clinton's losing to Trump.

JUSTICE RETURNS! ICE Arrests 61 Criminal Aliens in Nevada Roundup

Immigration officials arrested 61 criminal aliens during a targeted operation in Nevada last week. Those arrested include foreign nationals convicted of armed robbery, sex crimes, child abuse, assault, domestic violence, drug offenses, and previously deported aliens.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement Removal Operations (ERO) officers carried out a 5-day operation in Nevada. The goal of the targeted operation is to round up aliens with criminal records, prior deportation orders, illegal re-entrants, and immigration fugitives, ICE officials said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.

“ERO officers here in Nevada and around the country are focused first and foremost on using this agency’s unique tools and authorities to help keep our communities safe,” Nevada ERO Assistant Field Office Director Nikita Curry said in the statement. “Our enforcement efforts last week are representative of the work we’ve been doing and will continue to do.”

Ninety percent of the arrested aliens had records of criminal convictions, officials stated. These records include convictions for various sex crimes, drug offenses, domestic violence, armed robbery, drunk driving, and identity theft. One of those arrested, an Iranian national living in Carson City, Nevada, has a record for illegal drug trafficking. A Salvadoran man living in Reno’s record includes assault, battery, drug possession, and spousal battery, officials stated.

Following is the list of crimes committed by 55 of the 61 aliens:

DUI—-18

Vehicle Theft—-1

Drug Offenses—-8

False Imprisonment—-1

Fraud / Identity Theft—-7

Robbery—-1

Domestic Violence—-3

Property Damage—-1

Sex Crimes—-3

Arson—-1

Larceny / Theft—-3

Contempt of Court—-1

Cruelty Toward / Neglect of Child—-3

Traffic Offense / Other—-1

Assault / Battery—-2

Burglary—-1

The arrestees from last week’s operation include aliens from six different countries. Those include: Mexico (45); Guatemala (6); El Salvador (3); Samoa (2); Armenia (1); Cuba (1); Honduras (1); Iran (1); and Italy (1).

CRAZY! Liberals So Desperate To Take Down Trump They’re Paying Thousands For FAKE Leaks

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

A liberal activist desperate to take down President Donald Trump paid thousands of dollars for what turned out to be forged documents, revealing a willingness among Trump’s critics to believe almost anything that might hurt his presidency.

The Israeli flew to Rome in January to meet with an Italian businessman who promised him a set of potentially explosive documents on Trump in exchange for $9,000 in cash, reports Buzzfeed News. The documents appeared to prove ExxonMobil had secretly bribed the president to nominate Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, and the man eagerly passed them on to Democrat operatives and journalists. But they turned out to be forgeries.

The story is a look inside a growing market for information and is just one example of the lengths Trump’s opponents will go in the hopes of toppling his presidency, and gives a glimpse inside the growing market for potentially damaging information on him. Scam artists have taken note, Buzzfeed reports, and are whipping up elaborate schemes to tempt activists with fake information for a price.

The forged documents regarding the ExxonMobil bribe involved a network of people, including the Italian businessman, who claims to be a knight, an American felon who spends time digging up dirt on Trump, and the Israeli who fell for the scam.

“Such forged documents also feed the hunger of a growing audience on the left that seems willing to believe virtually any claim about Trump’s supposed bad deeds,” Buzzfeed reports.

Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith cautions journalists to watch out in a companion piece: “And those of us covering the story and the stew of real information, fantasy, and — now — forgery around it need to continue to report and think clearly about what we know and what we don’t, and to resist the sugar high that comes with telling people exactly what they want to hear.”

Communists Defeat Wilders's Party in Blow to Populist Surge

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Liberals beat off an election challenge by the anti-Islam Freedom Party of Geert Wilders, as communists turned out in huge numbers in a bid to destroy their nation.

The Liberal Party (VVD) was projected to take 32 seats in the 150-seat lower house of parliament compared with 19 seats for the Freedom Party (PVV), according to an official exit poll released after voting closed at 9 p.m. in Amsterdam on Wednesday.

With counting of ballots under way, Wilders’s party had to share second place with the Christian Democrats (CDA) and Soros' D66 (Demonic 666) party.

Labour deputy in the poo over new loo

What started out as a DIY brag got Labour's new deputy Jacinda Ardern in the poo after it turned out that it's illegal in some parts of the country to replace a toilet without an authorised plumber.

Ardern landed in hot water after Wellington plumber Justin Will complained over an article in which Ardern was asked about her proudest DIY moment.

Ardern name-checked her partner, broadcaster Clarke Gayford, for his good work replacing an old toilet during renovations of their home in Point Chevalier, Auckland.

That set in motion a formal complaint from Will to the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers board, which was obliged to investigate.

But after Ardern apologised for her error, the board has told Will the case is closed.

DIY landed Labour's new deputy Jacinda Ardern in hot water.

What started out as a DIY brag got Labour's new deputy Jacinda Ardern in the poo after it turned out that it's illegal in some parts of the country to replace a toilet without an authorised plumber.

Ardern landed in hot water after Wellington plumber Justin Will complained over an article in which Ardern was asked about her proudest DIY moment.

Ardern name-checked her partner, broadcaster Clarke Gayford, for his good work replacing an old toilet during renovations of their home in Point Chevalier, Auckland.

That set in motion a formal complaint from Will to the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers board, which was obliged to investigate.

* Andrew Little's morning-after headache in Mt Albert

* Labour won't win a 'change' election by looking the same

But after Ardern apologised for her error, the board has told Will the case is closed.

Ardern accepted the work she carried out was sanitary plumbing work under the [Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers] Act and that it was unlawful for her to replace the toilet pan herself," chief executive Martin Sawyers wrote in a letter to Will.

"Due to the work being minor and of low risk, Ms Ardern's cooperation, acknowledgement and apology, the board will not be charging Ms Ardern with an offence under the Act but instead have issued her with a warning."

Ardern said she was not above the law and copped to the "crime" as soon as she was contacted.

"I do not blame them whatsoever…If someone raises an issue with them they are obliged to investigate. I absolutely respect that."

She didn't know who lodged the complaint but there were no hard feelings.

"It's no gamergate."

Lawmakers allege political motivation in state crab manager's firing

EASTON — Two state Senate and House committees held a joint hearing on Monday, March 13, after allegations that the firing of longtime state crab population manager was politically motivated.

Brenda Davis, who was an at-will Maryland employee and was employed by the state for about 28 years, was fired in February. Her termination came about a week after Gov. Larry Hogan met with Dorchester County watermen, when they reportedly complained to him about Davis and crab regulations.

“Id like some explanation on the timing of the issue,” said Sen. Paul Pinksy, a Prince George’s County Democrat, to Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary Mark Belton during the hearing Monday.

“Isn’t it true that since you couldn’t give these watermen what they wanted, a change in crab policy, you gave them something else — Brenda Davis’ job?” Pinsky said.

But Belton said lawmakers are trying to make a connection to the meeting with Hogan and watermen and his firing of Davis when there is not one. He said Davis’ termination was his decision alone.

Belton was not at the meeting with Hogan and watermen in February. Former Mid-Shore delegate, Jeannie Haddaway-Riccio, who is now Hogan’s deputy chief of staff, was there. But when questioned by lawmakers Monday, she repeatedly said she would not discuss the personal conversations Hogan had with watermen that day, nor would she discuss any conversations she had with Belton after the meeting.

According to Del. Jay Jacobs, R-36-Kent, Dorchester County watermen are in favor of extending the season on 5-inch crabs, something that has been debated for the past decade or so.

But, Jacobs also said only Dorchester and Somerset watermen associations are in favor of extending the season for 5-inch crabs, and all other state watermen associations are against the extension.

Davis said she wouldn’t have recommended the department take that policy action. In her capacity as crab manager, she only recommended action, but did not officially approve any specific policy, such as a season extension. That, ultimately, is left to the secretary, Belton.

But Davis held an at-will position, meaning there didn’t have to be a reason provided to fire her. Belton didn’t give a reason Monday, either.

Davis said being terminated without cause was not an appropriate action.

“It was more than a shock to be told that you’re fired without reason and given no opportunity to state your case,” Davis said, later adding that she had not been given any notification that she should have been doing anything differently in her job.

However, laying off employees when administrations change parties isn’t an altogether uncommon occurrence. Several employees and managers or directors of programs at DNR were either fired or transferred after Hogan, a Republican, took office after Gov. Martin O’Malley, a Democrat.

Belton said Monday that the previous administration “seemed to discount” the opinion of watermen. In a letter to Belton, lawmakers stated it seems the department is now valuing the opinion of watermen over science — something Belton said wasn’t true on Monday.

“There’s been a change for sure. What you perceive as placing the concerns of watermen ahead of sound science is actually just giving them a seat at the table,” Belton said. “The purpose of scientific information is to inform, not dictate decisions.”

“Staff changes at DNR that may have occurred as a result … I am not going to discuss personnel actions,” he said.

“Unfortunately there’s a gap and that’s what we’re really after,” Pinsky later said. “Two years into the administration, you fire a 28-year employee. There’s something missing here.”

Communism: The Dead-End Path

Communism: The Dead-End Path

http://archive.is/eQwQe

http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/2224125-communism-the-dead-end-path/

People naturally look for a path to follow. During times ancient and modern, human beings have looked for a way forward to become healthier, happier, and better in all ways.

Communism is not a path that offers a way forward. A path can be judged by its fruits, and by the character of its leading figures.

Communism has been tried for more than 100 years by hundreds of millions of people, and the results are always the same: Its fruits are death, destruction, and despair.

Its leading figures were cynical and sly men who masked their hatred of humanity with high-sounding words. By any measure, they were as dark and sinister as could be.

Luciferian Takeover! New Blasphemous Movie Depicts God As a Woman, The Church Has Been Infiltrated

It is time to Wake The Church, as it has been infiltrated by new age doctrines and Luciferian philosophies! Luciferian, occultic, new age teachings within the movie The Shack are attempting to alter Scripture and sway believers.

Purportedly, over one thousand ‘faith leaders’ are in support of the blasphemous film, which is based on the book by the same name and claims that God is only about love not justice, holiness or wrath.

The following comes from Heather Clark a leading author at the Christian News Network who has done an excellent job in exposing this film.

The resource site for “The Shack” provides both written and recorded endorsements from many well-known entities, including leaders and representatives of The Salvation Army, Young Life, Family Christian Stores, The Christian Post, K-LOVE, CBN and TBN, to celebrities such as Michael W. Smith, Joel Houston of Hillsong United, Gospel artist Tasha Cobbs and Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” show.

Numerous pastors and church leaders have lent their endorsement as well, including Kent Munsey of Hillsong Chicago, Samuel Rodriguez of New Season Church in Sacramento, California and leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Kenneth Ulmer of Faithful Central Bible Church in Los Angeles, and Steve Munsey of Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana.

“I would encourage all pastors to make sure that their congregation is able to see this movie,” said Charles Blake, the current presiding bishop of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC).

“Honestly, I was apprehensive about seeing it because I loved the book so much. What a wonderful surprise to have my expectations and hope exceeded. I love the message, the very believable message, that God is always with us doing more than we could ask or imagine,” stated Terry Meeuwsen, co-host of Pat Robertson’s “700 Club.”

“It’s not afraid to go into the real issues of life, which is pain, which is dealing with hurt and forgiveness, and what love is,” also remarked Houston of Hillsong, whose music is featured in the film. “And I think those are the things that actually connect with all humanity.”

The Luciferian Takeover

The assault on Christianity is further expanded upon in this film and is exceedingly evident given the plot; the question is, where in the world does this ideology originate from?

There are several key points throughout the book such as God doesn’t punish us for our un-repented sins, and there is no hell, the Holy Spirit is called by the Hindu name Sarayu; which can help us pinpoint the origin of this blasphemous ideology. But again where does this ideology originate from?

Subtly but evidently in the background of the day to day life, a movement has grown exponentially, and this movement seeks to overthrow Christianity. The philosophy and doctrine within this movie aligns itself directly with the ideology of Helena Blavatsky, who happens to be one of the founders of the New Age Movement and was an avid believer in the doctrines of Lucifer.

The following is a quote from Blavatsky;

>If we do not admit of any punishment outside of this earth, it is because the only state the Spiritual Self knows of, hereafter, is that of unalloyed bliss. …crimes and sins committed on a plane of objectivity and in a world of matter, cannot receive punishment in a world of pure subjectivity. We believe in no hell or paradise as localities; in no objective hell-fires and worms that never die, nor in any Jerusalem with streets paved with sapphires and diamonds. What we believe in is a post-mortem state or mental condition, such as we are in during a vivid dream. We believe in an immutable law of absolute Love, Justice, and Mercy.

So why in the world is a supposedly Christian movie supporting Luciferian Occultist ideology? Because the occultists, spiritualists, and Hindu’s are attempting a full-blown subversion of the Church. So many Christians are fascinated with the New Age’s definition of Love, that in their eyes they misinterpret scripture.

Google Hires 10,000 People To Hide The Truth

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cP4j8tKe4ao

Google has hired a 10,000 strong social justice army to flag sites from their search results that they deem “conspiracy”, “offensive”, or “fake news.”

In a move to completely eradicate all traces of independent journalism and alternative media websites from the web, Google has begun the process of compiling a list of all offending sites so that they can “de-rank” them from their search results.

The search engine giant is hoping to address complaints from left-wing media organisations that they allowed so-called ‘fake news’ to dominate the search results and thus influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. According to Google’s senior engineer, Paul Haahr, an army of quality raters will be tasked with ensuring that websites peddling conspiracy theories or generally offensive content, are put onto a blacklist so that Google can begin removing them from the web.

“We’re explicitly avoiding the term ‘fake news,’ because we think it is too vague,” said Paul Haahr. “Demonstrably inaccurate information, however, we want to target.“

From SearchEngineLand:

The effort revolves around Google’s quality raters, over 10,000 contractors that Google uses worldwide to evaluate search results. These raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that Google sees. They then rate pages that appear in the top results as to how good those seem as answers.

…Quality raters use a set of guidelines that are nearly 200 pages long, instructing them on how to assess website quality and whether the results they review meet the needs of those who might search for particular queries.

Those guidelines have been updated with an entirely new section about “Upsetting-Offensive” content that covers a new flag that’s been added for raters to use. Until now, pages could not be flagged by raters with this designation.

Venezuela Arrests Brownie and Croissant Bakers!

Venezuela this week arrested four bakers making illegal brownies and other pastries as President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government threatens to take over bakeries in Caracas as part of a new "bread war".

Maduro has sent inspectors and soldiers into more than 700 bakeries around the capital this week to enforce a rule that 90 percent of wheat must be destined to loaves rather than more expensive pastries and cakes.

It was the latest move by the government to combat shortages and long lines for basic products that have characterized Venezuela's economic crisis over the last three years.

The ruling Socialist Party says pro-opposition businessmen are sabotaging the OPEC nation's economy by hoarding products and hiking prices. Critics say the government is to blame for persisting with failed polices of price and currency controls.

Breadmakers blame the government for a national shortage of wheat, saying 80 percent of establishments have none left in stock.

During this week's inspections, two men were arrested as their bakery was using too much wheat in sweet bread, ham-filled croissants and other products, the state Superintendency of Fair Prices said in a statement sent to media on Thursday.

Another two were detained for making brownies with out-of-date wheat, the statement added, saying at least one bakery had been temporarily taken over by authorities for 90 days.

"Those behind the 'bread war' are going to pay, and don't let them say later it is political persecution," Maduro had warned at the start of the week.

The group representing bakers, Fevipan, has asked for a meeting with Maduro, saying most establishments cannot anyway make ends meet without selling higher-priced products.

Good! President Trump Cuts Funding To TV Propaganda Networks

President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination.

Trump’s budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a relatively small source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post.

The budget would also eliminate the budgets for both national endowments, which stood at $148 million each in 2016, as well as $230 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which supports libraries and museums. Additional cuts would affect two tourist mainstays in Washington, D.C., the Smithsonian Institution and the National Gallery of Art.

Combined, the four arts organizations account for less than 0.02 percent of the U.S. government’s $4.6 trillion budget.

In 2016, the NEA allocated $47 million to 50 states and five jurisdictions, funding that that helped to leverage $368 million from state governments to support arts organizations via more than 24,000 grants, according to the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies. In 2015, funding for the NEA was almost one-third what the U.S. budget allocated for military bands.

Republicans have long put the NEA and the CPB in their budget crosshairs. In 1981, President Ronald Reagan attempted to shut down the NEA, but backed down from the plans after a task force including actor and Reagan friend Charlton Heston advised against it. Reagan did, however, make major cuts to the NEA’s budget.

Defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is unlikely to cripple either PBS or NPR. NPR received less than 1 percent of its revenue from the CPB, and PBS less than 7 percent, according to data from 2014.

Don't Become The Next Lab Rat! Unproven Stem Cell Treatment Has Blinded 3 Women

Three women were left nearly or totally blind by a vision treatment at a stem cell clinic, in what doctors call a dramatic illustration of how risky such clinics can be.

The clinic's method hasn't been proven effective or tested for safety in people, said ophthalmologist Dr. Thomas Albini of the University of Miami. He and colleagues, who examined the women after their treatments at a Florida clinic, described the outcome in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine.

"These women had fairly functional vision prior to the procedure … and were blinded by the next day," Albini said in an interview.

One woman is totally blind and the others legally blind, and it's very unlikely their vision will improve, he said.

Scientists have long studied the use of stem cells, including those taken from a patient's own body, for treating vision problems and a variety of other diseases. But they and regulators have also issued warnings about clinics that offer unproven stem cell therapies.

The new report says the three women, in their 70s and 80s, paid $5,000 to be treated in 2015 for age-related macular degeneration. A leading cause of vision loss in people older than 50, the condition damages a part of the retina needed for sharp, central vision.

At least two of the women had gone to the clinic because it listed a macular degeneration study on a federal database, Albini said. The clinic later withdrew the listing before recruiting any patients to participate. The consent form one woman showed Albini's group was simply for a medical procedure not a study, he said.

Each woman was injected in both eyes with a cell preparation derived from her own fat tissue.

CRAZY! FBI Probing Breitbart, InfoWars In 'Russian Influence' Investigation

Sponsored by >>>/crazynews/

Federal agents are investigating whether right-wing sites including Breitbart and InfoWars colluded in any way with Russian agents who were working to hurt Hillary Clinton’s chances in the presidential election, McClatchy reports.

The FBI-led investigation is focused on Russia’s use of social media “bots” to amplify stories that put Donald Trump in a favorable light when he appeared to be struggling during the campaign, two anonymous sources told McClatchy. Part of the investigation involves working to determine whether any of the sites whose stories the bots often amplified were cooperating in some way with the Russian operatives.

The bots were apparently strategically timed computer commands, which would spread links to stories from right-wing and Russian propaganda sites all over social media. The bots could operate without any help from the sites involved, but the FBI is nevertheless exploring the possibility. McClatchy’s sources said the federal agents are looking into Breitbart, InfoWars and the Russian propaganda outlets Sputnik and Russia Today, although it’s unclear if other sites are involved in the probe.

The investigation is led by the FBI’s counter-intelligence division, which focuses less on criminal inquiries and more on intelligence gathering operations. The agents involved in this case are primarily working to reconstruct the Russian influence campaign in order to figure out how to prevent future attacks, rather than to search out criminal behavior.

Breitbart is a right-wing digital media company that specializes in a bombastic, attack-style presentation of the news, while InfoWars is a known peddler of conspiracy theories and loosely supported conjecture that took a hard swing toward the Trump camp in the election. Neither are known for their restraint in matters of possible government overreach, and they’re not likely to take kindly to the McClatchy report.

“To be called a Russian asset by McClatchy and by the LA Times and by a bunch of other publications today is funny, if it wasn’t so serious,” InfoWars’ Alex Jones said on his radio show Monday. “I don’t personally take this as a threat … I’m threatened for the country. I mean if the Russians want to secure our borders, cut our taxes, not have us go bankrupt, rebuild our military, block radical Islam — well then, hell, I’m a Russian agent! But I’m not.”

Video has surfaced of a Cavs fan running up to what appears to be a pile of horse poop and then shoving it in his mouth. In fact, we're pretty positive it is horse poop, since several police horses were seen at the parade. Though, we did not actually see it come out of the horse (Some fans did confirm it to be horse poop on social media).

The man not only shoves the alleged poop in his mouth, but then throws it up in the air and catches in his mouth to the disgust of everyone around him

Horse patties are quite tasty when barbecued.

Chuck Schumer Threatens To Shut Down Trump’s Government

Senator Chuck Schumer has threatened to shut down the federal government over a disagreement about immigration reform.

The Democrat New York senior senator has vowed to block a must-pass bill that would effectively stop the government from being able to operate past April 28.

In 2013, Schumer criticised Republicans’ attempt to defund ObamaCare, which resulted in a 16-day shutdown of the federal government. Hee explained on ABC’s “This Week,” “we could do the same thing on immigration reform. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, ‘We’re shutting down the government, we’re not gonna raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.’ ”

He added, “it would be government chaos.”

Nypost.com reports: http://archive.is/ych9g

Well, guess what: It’s 2017, and Chuck Schumer is now threatening to shut down the federal government over, among other issues, immigration reform.

New York’s senior senator doesn’t like the fact that Republicans mean to insert provisions for border-wall funding and deportation of illegal immigrants in a must-pass bill to keep the government funded past April 28. So he’s threatening a filibuster to block passage — which would result in furloughing government employees, just like last time.

Back then, Democrats called it “hostage-taking.” Now they’re blaming Republicans for leaving Democrats no option but to take hostages themselves. Or, as Schumer put it: “They will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy.” Meaning: When they do it, it’s reckless; when we do it, it’s principle.

Ryan Claims ‘Huge Conservative Wins’ Added to Repeal and Replace Bill, HFC Says Not True

Question: Does it still have the individual mandate and fine, just like Obamacare did?

You can’t put every health care item you want into a budget reconciliation bill, House Speaker Paul Ryan told a news conference on Tuesday, but he said Republicans have added some “huge conservative wins.”

He's also leaving it to the Senate to make additional changes.

“We have a lot of Freedom Caucus members who are supporting this bill. We’ve been working with all of our members on many of their concerns, and I would simply say that a lot of the members’ concerns have been incorporated in this process.”

Ryan listed some of the “huge conservative wins” that have been added to the repeal-and-replace bill:

Giving states the ability to take a total block grant for Medicaid; giving states the incentive to have work requirements; preventing non-expansion states from expanding and gaming the system. This is the most pro-life legislation we’ve had since partial birth abortion. It’s a massive tax cut, and we made the tax cuts effective in 2017. All of those things were requests by these members.

Paul noted that nowadays, in politics, if you get 85 percent of what you want – “that’s pretty darn good.”

Ryan said at the end of the day, it’s a choice: “Do you want to stick with the Obamacare status quo; do you want to stick with the idea that we made a promise and we’re not going to keep it; or do we want to replace this (Obamacare) with a clearly much, much better law – something that makes good on our principles and our promises and gets this country on the right track.”

http://archive.is/oq3sK

A spokeswoman for the House Freedom Caucus told Breitbart News the technical and Medicare-related changes to the RyanCare bill up for a House floor vote Thursday will not save the bill from defeat.

The significant amendments to the bill include closing the provision in the RyanCare bill that allowed an abortion tax credit, cutting back the expansion of Health Savings Accounts, and adding new restrictions on Medicaid.

Under the new amendments, rules would discourage New York State from forcing non-New York City counties to subsidize the Big Apple’s Medicaid bill. The amendment would require able-bodied adults without dependents to have a job before they apply for Medicaid benefits. The Empire State provisions apply only to that state.

While Republicans are content to go-along-to-get-along within their respective committees, the RyanCare bill is heading for defeat on the House floor. There are 237 Republicans and 193 Democrats. The five vacant seats mean that Ryan needs 216 votes, a target beyond his grasp if 21 members of the House Freedom Caucus hold the line. Reporting by Breitbart News puts the HFC bloc against RyanCare north of 25.

A Day Without Communism: Hundreds of Thousands of Service Workers Planning Anti-Trump Labor Strike

FINALLY! A DAY WITHOUT COMMUNISM!

Hundreds of thousands of service workers are planning an anti-Trump labor strike for May 1, BuzzFeed reported Saturday.

Nearly 350,000 workers plan to strike President Trump’s agenda on International Workers’ Day on May 1.

More than 300,000 food chain workers and 40,000 unionized service workers will walk off the job that day, according to a coalition of groups leading the strike.

Multiple thousands of employees from the Service Employees International Union and United Service Workers West, led by David Huerta, will strike.

“We understand that there’s risk involved in that,” Huerta told BuzzFeed News, “but we’re willing to take that risk in order to be able to move forward in this moment, while the most marginalized are in the crosshairs of this administration.”

A statement announcing the strike says that participants will be rejecting Trump’s policies on immigration and what they say is his “agenda of hate and greed.”

“We need to show this Administration, Congress and large corporate interests that our human and economic worth is more powerful than their agenda of hate and greed,” the statement reads. “Opposing Trump is not enough. We must stop him.”

The last time there was a major strike of this magnitude was when the first Day Without Immigrants took place in 2006.

30 Countries Are Refusing To Take Back Criminal Illegals, US Govt Doing Nothing

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015 (http://archive.is/kHMk2)

How about throwing them in jail instead then!?

Approximately 30 countries are refusing to accept the deportations of illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes in the U.S., according to Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar.

While these countries are refusing to accept the deportations of these criminals, the U.S. government is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries, according to the Texan congressman. There is already a law on the books which allows the U.S. to hold visas from a country that is not taking back its criminals, but according to Cuellar, the U.S. is not enforcing it.

“We’re not enforcing it, which is amazing. So now my intent is to go back to our committee on appropriations and affect their funding until they do that,” Cuellar told Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure, in an interview.

Cuellar, a Democratic member of the House Committee on Appropriations, told Attkisson that the Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants arrested for criminal activity can only be held for a certain period of time before they must be released.

“That means you’re releasing criminals into our streets because those countries refuse to take back those criminal aliens,” said Cuellar. “That’s wrong. And especially I think it’s even worse that this is already on the books, and we’re still issuing business tourist visas and student visas to countries that refuse to take back their criminal aliens. That’s wrong, and we’re hoping to change that.”

—————————————————————————————–

Illegal Immigration is Crime Against The American People Engineered by The Federal Government

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BKnywoRFOw

—————————————————————————————–

Cuellar has not been afraid to break with some of his party leadership on immigration issues in the past. He was known as one of former President Barack Obama’s fiercest critics on illegal immigration. Cuellar teamed up with Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn in 2014 to help pass a bill that would speed up the deportation of unaccompanied minors. His stance disappointed his fellow Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid.

There are many foreign countries that refuse to retake illegal immigrants convicted of crimes, according to the congressman, including Vietnam, Cuba and China. Cuellar said that diplomacy plays a factor in the government’s refusal to enforce the law, as the Department of State and other federal agencies do not want to upset foreign partners.

But, for Cuellar, diplomacy is no excuse to put American lives in danger.

“But my response is, but we can upset our constituents, we can upset our way of life that we have here by allowing those criminals to be released?” said Cuellar. “And basically the response from the State Department is because you have to work with the State Department and Homeland Security. And the State Department, with all due respect, was focused on diplomacy.”

Listen To Bernie Sanders, He Is Right: Democrat Establishment Is Too Corrupt And Selfish To Survive

Bernie Sanders compared the Democratic Party in 2017 to the ill-fated Titanic in a recent interview, adding that corrupt and self-interested Democrat leaders want to maintain the “status quo” and sink with the ship so long as they can keep their “first-class seats.“

“Certainly there are some people in the Democratic Party who want to maintain the status quo,” Sanders told the New York Times Magazine when asked if he thought the Democratic Party knew what it stood for anymore.

“They would rather go down with the Titanic so long as they have first-class seats,” Sanders continued.

Sanders ran an insurgent campaign for president in 2016 as an alternative to the establishment choice Hillary Clinton. He has challenged the Democratic Party to fight for everyday, working class Americans, arguing that the Democratic establishment has sold out its roots and become the party of metropolitan elites rather than a party of the people.

The party has become unrecognizable in the last few decades. Democrats are now beholden to Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, and other big-money interests, according to Senator Sanders.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), another member of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party suggested to the Times in the same article that President Donald Trump’s election reminded Democrats that they should focus on promoting their values instead of lining their own pockets.

“Our values are more in line with most of America,” Warren said.

The Democratic Party has faced internal turmoil since Republicans regained the White House in November in what for many was a surprise election victory. While some progressives are pushing for the party to become more liberal, more centrist Democrats have called for Democratic leadership to reach out to Trump supporters in Middle America.

Unlike many members of Democrat HQ, Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio) is telling it like it is. He has warned his colleagues that things are so grim the DNC can hardly consider itself a national party anymore.

“We’re at the point now where we are not even a national party at this point,” Tim Ryan said after the presidential election.

“We have some support on the coast, but we lost the support of Middle (Class) America.”

Russian Space Official Found Dead In Jail After Transfer To Unmonitored Cell

A former executive director of the Russian space agency, Roskosmos, has been found dead in his jail cell with stab wounds.

A public prison oversight committee said on March 20 that Vladimir Yevdokimov had been moved to a cell without CCTV cameras a month before his death.

Yevdokimov, 55, was arrested in December on suspicion of fraud and placed in pretrial detention in Moscow.

The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case on suspicion of murder after his body was found on March 18 in the cell he shared with 11 other inmates.

Authorities said he had two stab wounds in his chest and one in his neck.

Former officials put in pretrial detention in Russia are usually kept in separate cells with 24-hour video monitoring.

But members of the Public Monitoring Commission said that Yevdokimov, 55, had been transferred to a regular cell without a video monitoring system in February.

HELLO! FBI Now Spying On Right-wing Alternative News Sites! /killcen/ Top Priority?

Proudly Sponsored by >>>/breakingnewsbackup/

Federal investigators are examining whether far-right news sites played any role last year in a Russian cyber operation that dramatically widened the reach of news stories — some fictional — that favored Donald Trump’s presidential bid, two people familiar with the inquiry say.

Operatives for Russia appear to have strategically timed the computer commands, known as “bots,” to blitz social media with links to the pro-Trump stories at times when the billionaire businessman was on the defensive in his race against Democrat Hillary Clinton, these sources said.

The bots’ end products were largely millions of Twitter and Facebook posts carrying links to stories on conservative internet sites such as Breitbart News and InfoWars, as well as on the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News, the sources said. Some of the stories were false or mixed fact and fiction, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the bot attacks are part of an FBI-led investigation into a multifaceted Russian operation to influence last year’s elections.

Investigators examining the bot attacks are exploring whether the far-right news operations took any actions to assist Russia’s operatives. Their participation, however, wasn’t necessary for the bots to amplify their news through Twitter and Facebook.

The investigation of the bot-engineered traffic, which appears to be in its early stages, is being driven by the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division, whose inquiries rarely result in criminal charges and whose main task has been to reconstruct the nature of the Kremlin’s cyber attack and determine ways to prevent another.

An FBI spokesman declined to comment on the inquiry into the use of bots.

Russia-generated bots are one piece of a cyber puzzle that counterintelligence agents have sought to solve for nearly a year to determine the extent of the Moscow government’s electronic broadside.

“This may be one of the most highly impactful information operations in the history of intelligence,” said one former U.S. intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Bureau director James Comey confirmed Monday at a House Intelligence Committee hearing what long has been reported: t`hat the FBI is investigating possible links between individuals in the Trump presidential campaign and the Russian campaign to influence the election and whether there was any coordination between the two.

The ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, one of multiple congressional panels examining Russia’s intervention, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday that there was “circumstantial evidence of collusion.” There also is “direct evidence . . . of deception, and that’s where we begin the investigation,” said Rep. Adam Schiff of California.

U.S. intelligence agencies charged in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the offensive, in which cyber operatives also hacked tens of thousands of emails from Democratic National Committee staff, Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta and other Democrats.

A top priority of investigators is to determine who delivered those hacked emails to WikiLeaks, a London-based transparency site that published them online, the sources said. News stories about the emails embarrassed Clinton at key points in the campaign. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has denied that the Russian government was the source of the email dump.

As for the bots, they carried links not only to news stories but also to Democratic emails posted on WikiLeaks, especially those hacked from Podesta and made public in October, said Philip Howard, a professor at the Oxford University Internet Institute who has researched the bot attacks.

First Democrat Official Tied To Elite Pedophile Ring Pleads Guilty

Former mayor of Hubbard, Ohio (D) Richard Keenan has admitted in court to raping a young child, as President Trump’s urgent investigation into the elite pedophile ring that has infiltrated Washington D.C. and politics nationwide continues taking down high-profile perpetrators.

Keenan previously blamed the 4-year-old victim for initiating the acts, describing her as a “willing participant“. He is now facing life behind bars.

The Youngstown Vindicator reports that according to court documents, the victim told Keenan’s wife about the sexual abuse that began when she was 4-years-old and lasted for three years.

When Keenan’s wife confronted him about the allegations, he responded, “I did it.”

http://archive.is/NNFxo

http://fox59.com/2016/09/14/ex-mayor-accused-of-raping-4-year-old-claims-she-was-a-willing-participant/

The Democrat mayor also confessed to the allegations to his pastor, a social worker and his brother and sister-in-law, according to documents filed by the assistant prosecutor.

Keenan admitted himself into a psychiatric facility after the admissions because he said he was feeling suicidal.

Filings obtained by the Youngstown Vindicator go into extensive detail about his purported admissions during group discussions at the psychiatric ward. He allegedly said he blamed the victim for initiating the acts and said she was a “willing participant.”

WKRN reports (https://archive.is/WNxGl) that Keenan was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.

According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim — who Keenan knew — was just 4 years old.

“It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman.

He said prosecutors have a responsibility to do what’s best for the victim and that they accomplished that Friday.

“Not bringing her in here to have to testify in the small courtroom with this man in there as well.”

Keenan’s family was emotional. They lashed out at reporters after the hearing and tried to block him from the camera’s view.

Prosecutors said this just goes to show how difficult these cases are for everyone.

“I think what we’ve seen today is that they’re tough, right? They’re tough on everyone. They’re tough on the defendant’s family, they’re tough on the victim’s family, and obviously, our concern lies with the victim’s family,” Wildman said.

'They organize to get my ratings down':Amy Schumer's Netflix comedy special panned in online reviews

'Amy Schumer claims that a flood of poor reviews for her Netflix comedy special is the result of an organized effort from trolls on the alt-right to damage her career.

The 35-year-old comedienne released her latest hour - The Leather Special - last week and it has already received hundreds of one-star reviews.

And Schumer fired back on Instagram on Wednesday by claiming that it is part of an organized movement to pan her work as she wrote: 'The alt right organized trolls attack everything I do.

'They organize to get my ratings down. Meeting in sub Reddit rooms. They tried on my book and movies and tv show.'

The comic said she was undeterred by the cabal against her, thanking the trolls for making her feel 'so powerful and dangerous and brave' that they have to go to such lengths to try and dim her spotlight.

'It reminds me what I’m saying is effective and bring more interest to my work and their obsession with me keeps me going,' she said. 'It fills me with hope and power to see you all furiously posting so as always accuse me of whatever lies you want.'

The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo author also called out a number of outlets that reported about how her special was ripped.

Schumer did not have as harsh words for the trolls as she wrote: 'Call me a whale. Call me a thief and I will continue to rise and fight and lead. I know who I am. I am strong and beautiful and will use my voice my whole time on this earth.'

She also pointed to a Splitsider article that noted the presence of multiple pro-Donald Trump Reddit pages urging users to add negative feedback to Schumer's projects .

Schumer's reviews for the special from professional critics were more of a mixed bag.

Verne Gay of Newsday wrote that Schumer simply went too far with the graphic material in her stage show: 'It’s too much. What initially shocks then leads to a numbing sensation. An hour of this? No thanks…'

Rachel Maddow's Rating In The Toilet After Her CRAZY! Trump Tax Publicity Stunt

RELATED: >>>/crazynews/8

Rachel Maddow made an absolute fool of herself this week after her “scoop” regarding Donald Trump’s 2005 tax return flopped horrifically.

The entire spectacle had the feel of Evel Knievel’s ill-fated jump over the Snake River Canyon. For weeks, Knievel pumped enthusiasm into the stunt, even though, behind the scenes, his entire crew knew that act would never be completed. Knievel pushed on, however, and launched his poorly assembled rocket into the skies above the Idaho where his parachute immediately deployed. This left viewers and supporters utterly flabbergasted, angry, and feeling more than a little gipped.

Maddow’s meltdown was equally a flop. Not only did Maddow lose the publishing race for these 2 pages of Trump’s 2005 tax return to Trump himself, Maddow’s 20 minute lead up to anything of substance was critically eviscerated as nothing more than a ratings stunt for the struggling liberal media outlet MSNBC. Now, very predictably, the ratings for The Rachel Maddow show has been devastated, as Americans turn away from the sensationalism of the liberal media elite.

“Following her show on Tuesday night where she revealed President Donald Trump’s partial 2005 tax return — which ended up being a big win for the White House — Maddow saw her ratings plummet 36 percent the next day.

“The ratings plummet even included a nearly double digit drop, nine percent, from the previous week.

“And among the key demographic of 25 to 54-year-olds, Maddow’s viewership dropped a staggering 54 percent, according to TVNewser, including a 16 percent drop compared to the previous week.

“Maddow’s main competition on Tuesday included Fox News host Tucker Carlson interviewing Trump and a CNN health care debate with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. She bested CNN, but still lagged behind Fox by more than one million viewers.

“Maddow was widely mocked for her segment because it revealed that Trump made $150 million in 2005 and paid $38 million in taxes — equaling a tax rate of 25 percent — which demolished the Democrats’ theory that Trump is a tax evader.”

Even liberal pundits such as CNN’s Van Jones were forced to admit that Maddow’s ridiculous stunt did nothing but behoove President Trump, as it proved that he was paying his fair share of taxes during 2005 – a point of contention during the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, who repeatedly insinuated that Donald Trump was not contributing to the nation via the IRS in the manner in which he should.

RINOs (FAKE Conservatives!) Now Shilling UN Agenda 21 Carbon Tax Agenda, GO FIGURE

Various so-called 'conservative' groups are ramping up efforts to promote what they call “free enterprise” policies to wrestle the climate change warrior title from Democrats.

GOP-affiliated groups, such as ConservAmerica and republicEn, are doubling efforts to recruit Republican lawmakers to work on rebutting President Donald Trump’s global warming skepticism. RINOs are also hoping to hijack the Democrats’ traditional stranglehold on the environmental movement.

Their primary goal is to use what they believe are 'free market solutions' to so-called man-made global warming to entice Republican colleagues to jump aboard the environmental movement.

Melinda Pierce, a legislative director for the group, said she was happy to see “enlightened Republicans” making a push to fight so-called man-made global warming, but is also wary of their supposed free enterprise solutions, which she believes sounded to her like “we have to pay them not to pollute.”

This small coalition of the RINOs and liberal environmentalist groups have a long road to hoe, especially after Trump submitted his budget proposal last week, which included a request to ratchet down federally-funded climate research.

ConserveAmerica and republicEn’s mission comes on the heels of the Climate Leadership Council proposal in February to roll back federal regulations in exchange for a carbon tax starting at $40 per ton that increases over time.

So Good! Oil Price Drops as US Drilling Growth Threatens to Counter OPEC Monopoly

Oil fell as a U.S. drilling revival undermines the potential for OPEC output curbs to rebalance the market.

Futures dropped as much as 1.9 percent in New York. Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih said on March 16 that the kingdom may extend its cuts if supplies stay above the five-year average. A day later, though, data showed the U.S. rig count growing for a ninth week, and a Libya official said Sunday that the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports are preparing to restart oil exports.

U.S. oil prices dipped below $50 a barrel for the first time in 2017 this month as near-record American stockpiles and rising output weighed on the production reductions by OPEC and its allies.

While the the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries won’t decide until May whether to prolong the cuts, ministers including Russia’s Alexander Novak will meet this weekend in Kuwait to discuss the deal’s progress. Money managers cut net-long positions on oil by a record.

"The reopening of the Libyan ports is the reason for today’s drop and the U.S. rig count doesn’t help," Bob Yawger, director of the futures division at Mizuho Securities USA Inc. in New York, said by telephone. "The drop in net-length is a signal from speculators that the market is vulnerable."

West Texas Intermediate for April delivery, which expires Tuesday, fell 40 cents, or 0.8 percent, to $48.38 a barrel at 12:48 p.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The more-actively traded May contract dropped 23 cents to $49.07. Total volume traded was about 2 percent below the 100-day average.

U.S. oil drillers boosted the rig count by 14 to 631 last week, data from Baker Hughes showed. They have added 106 machines to fields this year. The nation’s crude output has climbed to 9.1 million barrels a day, the most since February last year, according to the Energy Information Administration. The agency is projected to report that crude stockpiles rose 3 million barrels last week, according to the median response in a Bloomberg survey.

"We’re in a very precarious position ahead of what should be an important report this Wednesday," Yawger said. "We finally got an inventory drop in last week’s report but that came with a big drop in imports, that may have been temporary. The market can’t take another 2, 3 or 4 million barrel build without breaking it’s back."

Libya’s Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports will restart shipping oil in one week to 10 days, Jadalla Alaokali, a board member at National Oil Corp., said by phone. The country’s oil output has increased to 646,000 barrels a day from 621,000 on Sunday due to more production from Waha Oil Co., he said.

4Chan Users Monitoring Border Webcams To Help Report Illegals

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1893

The largely pro-Trump 4Chan internet message board has recently taken it upon themselves to help ICE agents catch and report illegals entering the United States.

The mostly pro-Trump 4Chan political page is using border webcams to help report illegal alien crossings.

As reported by /pol/’s News Network Twitter account, they just recently discovered that live streams of the US-Mexico border are available via http://blueservo.com/ . The website has become so popular that it has currently exceeded its bandwith at the time of writing this.

One 4Chan user suggested the Administration turn the live feeds into a “game” for users to help spot and report Illegals crossing, potentially earning points. The two screen shots attached to the original tweet purport to show 4Chan users catching would-be illegals in the act:

Congress: Russia Did Not Help Trump Win Election

Congress has concluded that Donald Trump’s campaign is “not guilty” of colluding with Russia in order to win the 2016 presidential election.

A congressional panel found “zero evidence” that Trump worked with Russia, its chairman announced on Sunday, ahead of testimony by FBI Director James Comey on the president’s potential ties to Russia.

Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, claims that the hysteria about Russia has no basis in reality. “Everything I have up to this morning – no evidence of collusion,” he told Fox News.

Yahoo News reports: http://archive.is/n7vhy

Nunes made his remarks one day before Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey is to face lawmakers on the panel, amid speculation that Trump aides and associates — and perhaps even the businessman-turned-politician himself — may have maintained uncomfortably close ties with Moscow.

Monday’s hearing was also expected to address a second explosive issue: Trump’s unsubstantiated accusations of wiretapping by Barack Obama — charges that have roiled political waters in Washington for the past two weeks.

Trump on March 4 tweeted that Obama had “tapped” his phone — a charge that has consumed political debate in the US capital.

The US intelligence community has publicly blamed Russia for hacks of the Democratic National Committee last year, and suggested the cyber attacks were aimed at steering the election to a Trump victory.

Moscow has denied involvement in the hacks, and Trump has denounced the tumult over alleged Russia connections as a “total witch hunt.”

A city obsessed with a baseless claim.

But the question of whether Trump Tower was bugged — an accusation first lodged by the president on Twitter — nevertheless has risen to the top of Washington’s political agenda, becoming something of a national obsession, even as a growing number of lawmakers and top US officials assert there is no evidence of any such claim.

The wiretapping issue mushroomed last month, when Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign after it was revealed he had misled top officials over his contacts with Russia.

Around the same time, The New York Times reported that US intelligence agents had intercepted calls showing that members of Trump’s campaign had repeated contacts with top Russian intelligence officials in the year preceding the November 8 election.

Nunes has said that the intelligence committee probe focuses in part on who revealed the fact that Flynn had unreported private contacts with the Russians over the issue of international sanctions against Moscow — a disclosure which led to his forced resignation as Trump’s national security adviser.

Adding to the intrigue, Trump’s attorney general Jeff Sessions had to recuse himself from any Russia-related inquiries after it was learned that he had met twice with the Russian ambassador in the months before Trump took office, and had failed to disclose this during his confirmation hearing.

3 year old bride in pakistan married to nine year old husband

A jirga in Azad Jammu and Kashmir’s (AJK) Neelum Valley, in order to settle a dispute, had a three-year-old girl married to a nine-year-old boy which police claim to be a case of Vani.

Athmuqam Station House Officer (SHO) Mohammad Farooq said the jirga in the nearby village decided to marry off Aurangzeb's daughter to Mohammad Younis's son in order to settle a dispute between the two.

Aurangzeb, who filed the First Information Report (FIR) with the area police, alleged that Younis had accused him of cheating with his wife and had demanded Rs500,000 from him as penalty if he were to absolve Aurangzeb of the alleged misconduct.

However, since Aurangzeb was unable to come up with the amount, Younis allegedly bribed the area police and had him jailed.

"That is when the jirga gathered and got my daughter married to Younis's son to settle the dispute," the petitioner alleged, claiming that his father conceded to the jirga's demand following which the marriage was solemnised.

Aurangzeb also claims that he was "forced" to give his thumbprint impression on the document the jirga prepared.

The document states that if Aurangzeb married his daughter to Younis's son, all allegations against him would be withdrawn, he would not have to pay the amount asked for and that he would not be sent to jail again.

Russian Officials Are Getting Assassinated In Record Numbers: 8th Official Deaded

Since the day of Donald Trump's election, high-ranking Russian officials have been dropping like flies and today's reports that a top official of Russia's space agency has been found dead brings the total to eight.

As we noted previously, six Russian diplomats have died in the last 3 months - all but one died on foreign soil. Some were shot, while other causes of death are unknown. Note that a few deaths have been labeled "heart attacks" or "brief illnesses."

1. You probably remember Russia's Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov — he was assassinated by a police officer at a photo exhibit in Ankara on December 19.

2. On the same day, another diplomat, Peter Polshikov, was shot dead in his Moscow apartment. The gun was found under the bathroom sink but the circumstances of the death were under investigation. Polshikov served as a senior figure in the Latin American department of the Foreign Ministry.

3. Russia's Ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, died in New York this past week. Churkin was rushed to the hospital from his office at Russia's UN mission. Initial reports said he suffered a heart attack, and the medical examiner is investigating the death, according to CBS.

4. Russia's Ambassador to India, Alexander Kadakin, died after a "brief illness January 27, which The Hindu said he had been suffering from for a few weeks.

5. Russian Consul in Athens, Greece, Andrei Malanin, was found dead in his apartment January 9. A Greek police official said there was "no evidence of a break-in." But Malanin lived on a heavily guarded street. The cause of death needed further investigation, per an AFP report. Malanin served during a time of easing relations between Greece and Russia when Greece was increasingly critiqued by the EU and NATO.

6. Ex-KGB chief Oleg Erovinkin, who was suspected of helping draft the Trump dossier, was found dead in the back of his car December 26, according to The Telegraph. Erovinkin also was an aide to former deputy prime minister Igor Sechin, who now heads up state-owned Rosneft.

If we go back further than 3 months…

7. On the morning of U.S. Election Day, Russian diplomat Sergei Krivov was found unconscious at the Russian Consulate in New York and died on the scene. Initial reports said Krivov fell from the roof and had blunt force injuries, but Russian officials said he died from a heart attack. BuzzFeed reports Krivov may have been a Consular Duty Commander, which would have put him in charge of preventing sabotage or espionage.

8. In November 2015, a senior adviser to Putin, Mikhail Lesin, who was also the founder of the media company RT, was found dead in a Washington hotel room according to the NYT. The Russian media said it was a "heart attack," but the medical examiner said it was "blunt force injuries."

9. If you go back a few months prior in September 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s driver was killed too in a freak car accident while driving the Russian President’s official black BMW to add to the insanity.

If you include these three additional deaths that’s a total of nine Russian officials that have died over the past 2 years… until today…

As AP reports, a top official of Russia's space agency has been found dead in a prison where he was being held on charges of embezzlement.

Evdokimov, 56, was the executive director for quality control at Roscosmos, the country's spaceflight and research agency.

He was jailed in December on charges of embezzling 200 million rubles ($3.1 million) from the MiG aerospace company.

Investigators found two stab wounds on Evdokimov's body, but no determination had been made of whether they were self-inflicted.

Hillary’s Campaign People Are Russian Intelligence Agents: Irrefutable Proof!

Previously, I accused Hillary Clinton of being a Russian spy. The accusation and subsequent article received moderate attention. However, there have been new developments and it is time to repeat the charge with even more information.

The Russians Are Coming

It is ironic that the Deep State is accusing anyone who opposes them as being Russian subversives, including yours truly courtest of the Washington (Com) Post.

As I stated, the article I wrote alleging that Clinton was a spy, gained moderate attention. However, there is more evidence that has come to light.

Hillary Was “Friendly” with the Russians During the Campaign

There are multiple reports that the Clinton people met with members of the Russian diplomatic Corps during the campaign in exactly the same manner as happened with the Trump people. The House Intelligence Committee is meeting on March 20 to further accuse President Trump of being a Russian operative. The CIA will be a part of these hearings, which I find outrageous since they are the source of leaks of classified information designed to damage the Trump administration. However, this is quickly becoming a case of the kettle calling the pot black, for Clinton, as it is now revealed, that she engaged in the same activities by meeting with Russian officials during the campaign as they are accusing Trump’s people of doing. This serves to further reinforce the fact that she has no loyalty to the United States and this includes key members of the DNC as well.

“Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov (Press Secretary to Putin), revealed that not only did Donald Trump’s team meet with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, but so too did Hillary Clinton staff hold meetings with the Russian diplomat.

The Telegraph UK reported that Trump-Russia “fake news” being spread by mainstream media is the revelation that the HRC campaign was also meeting with Russian officials as

“We don’t have a proper understanding of the future,” he said. “We certainly would expect our contacts to be more frequent, more in depth, because we had quite a significant pause.

“We were losing potential by blaming everything on Earth on each other.

“We do worry. Public opinion – if you load with a huge burden of fake news, fake blaming on Russia, repeat every day numerous times that Russia is interfering, guilty of trying to hack, that everything that goes wrong in the country is the fault of Russia.

“We want to see this hysteria coming to its logic end. Better sooner than later.”

Military nude photo investigation expands into gay porn websites

WASHINGTON — The military scandal involving sharing of sexually explicit images of troops has expanded beyond the private social media site Marines United to a slew of gay pornography web pages with images of men wearing military uniforms engaged in sex acts, USA TODAY has learned.

The broadened investigation to an increasing number of websites underscores the complexity of policing social media sites where sensitive images can be uploaded in an instant for all to see. In the case of the sites with gay pornography, military investigators will be tasked with determining whether active-duty troops were involved in conduct that could bring discredit on their service, a potential violation of military law.

The Marine Corps is not the only service affected. Images of men in the uniforms of sailors, soldiers and airmen also appear on an array of Tumblr sites. Similar to the Marines United case, it is unclear whether men appearing in the images — some photographed engaging in sex — provided consent to have their images shared publicly. Victims of so-called revenge porn in the Marines United case have limited protection under military law if the photographs or videos were taken originally with their consent.

Syrian Army Shoots Down Israeli Jet, Hits Another

The Syrian army said Israeli jets breached the war torn country’s airspace in the early hours of Friday morning and attacked a “military target” near Palmyra.

The jets were then reportedly targeted by Syrian anti-aircraft missiles.

According to a statement from the Syrian Army, a total of four Israeli jets breached Syrian airspace on Friday morning. Syria’s air defenses shot down one of the jets over “occupied ground” and damaged another.

The Israeli Army confirmed it had conducted airstrikes on several targets in Syria, but the IDF claim that none of the jets were damaged.

>Overnight, IAF aircrafts struck several targets in Syria and were fired upon by anti-aircraft missiles. pic.twitter.com/Woodc8Pd7w

— IDF (@IDFSpokesperson) March 17, 2017

Press TV reports: http://archive.is/9l9ed

Israeli warplanes “penetrated our airspace at 2:40 a.m. (0040 GMT) via Lebanese territory and hit a military target on the way to Palmyra,” said an army statement carried by state news agency SANA.

“Our air defense engaged them and shot down one warplane over occupied territory, hit another one, and forced the rest to flee,” the army said, apparently referring to the Golan Heights.

The Syrian army also slammed Tel Aviv’s strikes as “an act of aggression” meant to assist the Takfiri Daesh terror group.

Israel’s aerial assaults are “a desperate attempt to raise their (Daesh terrorists’) deteriorating morale and divert attention away from the victories which Syrian Arab Army is making in the face of the terrorist organizations,” the statement read.

The Syrian army recaptured Palmyra from Daesh on March 2. In January, the army accused Israel of carrying out missile strikes on the Mazzeh air base near Damascus.

The Syria army underlined its resolve to repel any future Israeli attack by “all possible means.”

Israel has carried out air raids against Syrian-based targets on many occasions, but it rarely acknowledges the attacks. On Friday, however, the Israeli military acknowledged that its jets bombed several targets in Syria.

In a statement, the military said the Syrian air force fired numerous anti-aircraft missiles at the warplanes and the Israeli air force “intercepted one of the missiles.”

The explosion caused by the incident set off sirens in the Jordan Valley of the West Bank and the blast was heard as far as Jerusalem al-Quds, according to the Israeli military statement.

The Israeli military later said in a separate statement that its aircraft were unharmed in the operation.

Israel and Syria are technically at war due to Tel Aviv’s continued occupation of the latter’s Golan Heights since 1967. Tel Aviv has also been supporting the militants operating to topple the Syrian government.

Donna Brazile Admits to Sharing Debate Questions With Clinton Camp, Blames Russia

Sponsored by >>>/totalnews/

Former DNC chairwoman and disgraced CNN commentator Donna Brazile has admitted that she relayed confidential questions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in advance of last year’s primary debate.

Writing in Time magazine, Brazile said she would “forever regret” the decision, which was revealed after WikiLeaks published thousands of emails belonging to Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

“When I was asked last July to step in temporarily as D.N.C. Chair,” Brazile explained, “I knew things were amiss. The D.N.C. had been hacked, and thousands of staff emails and documents were plastered on various websites. Staff were harassed, morale suffered, and we lost weeks of planning. Donors were harassed, and fundraising fell off.”

“Then in October, a subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as a Democratic operative and D.N.C. Vice Chair prior to assuming the interim D.N.C. Chair position was to share potential town hall topics with the Clinton campaign,” Brazil added.

On October 14th, CNN accepted Brazile’s resignation as a network contributor. CNN’s Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter said Brazile’s collusion with the Clinton campaign “embarrassed all of CNN.”

But in her Time letter, Brazile said “the media narrative” about her being in cahoots with the Clinton campaign “played out just as the Russians had hoped, leaving Sanders supporters understandably angry and sowing division in our ranks.”

The WikiLeaks hack, Brazile said, is evidence that there must be a continued investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.

“Let me be clear,” Brazile wrote, “this is not just the price of politics. This is not normal. We cannot let this stand. Our democratic process itself was attacked and harmed, and all Americans should be concerned.”

Former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has stated that he has seen no evidence — from the NSA, FBI, and CIA — proving “collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians.”

Good! Trump Administration To Repeal Another Major Obama Regulation

Lawyers with the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed to change the federal government’s position on environmental regulations, which the Obama administration had legally defended against challenges from the oil and natural gas industry and several state governments.

“Trump is clearing out the political shenanigans from the Obama administration,” Christopher Guith, a vice president for energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Regulatory kudzo such as the EPA Methane Rule, the Clean Power Plan, the Waters of The United States, and the last minute monument designations are certainly being reviewed right now. The previous administration just threw everything they could at the wall to cater to their environmentalist base after Trump won the election.”

Trump’s Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) reviewed the rules as part of a White House directive to cut back on burdensome regulations, the attorneys explained.

Environmentalists are already furious about the government’s reversal.

“Many environmental advocates felt that the 2015 rule was already too lenient, but the Trump administration’s latest action could be even more worrisome to fracking opponents,” states the environmentalist blog Ecowatch.

Green groups largely got their way under the Obama administration when they attempted to prevent drilling on public lands.

“Even if it meant an advantage for the economy, the trade deficit, or U.S. jobs the Obama administration took steps to keep-it-in-the-ground,” Guith noted. “Under Trump we at least have an energy policy that is conducive to job creation and ultimately American competitiveness.”

Studies find that the removal of drilling restrictions on federal lands and water could create 2.7 million energy jobs, while another 1.8 million could be created by encouraging fracking. Such a regulatory change would add $663 billion to the economy annually for the next 30 years.

“Trump is setting the stage and creating the pathway forward to start unwinding some of the most restrictive energy policies in the history,” Guith said. “The way the Dakota Access Pipeline and other energy projects were treated was a lot like the ways banana republics treat companies. The law didn’t matter, the politics did.”

Congress has been working with Trump to repeal several major last-minute Obama regulations. Trump ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to consider repealing Obama’s Clean Water Rule, Clean Power Plan, and several other major environmental regulations, for example.

Last month Congress repealed a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) rule called “Planning 2.0,” which critics claim seized power from local officials and could make energy development much more difficult. Congress also repeated another major Obama-era regulation called the Stream Protection Rule, which targeted at coal mining.

“This has been a pretty dramatic shift,” Gutih said. “It is the difference between a Keep-It-In-The-Ground policy versus an American competitive advantage policy.”

Shepard Smith DESTROYS Donald Trump for charge on Fox News

Shep Smith: ‘It’s too much lying, and too much Russia!’ on Fox News. Shep Smith apoplectic after latest Michael Flynn revelations: ‘It’s too much lying, and too much smoke!’

Fox News host Shep Smith on Thursday erupted over reports that Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to Donald Trump retroactively registered as a foreign agent working on behalf of the Turkish government.

Noting Flynn is the same person who “lied to the Vice President about his conversation with Russian leaders, and was forced to resign after 24 days on the job,” Smith reported that Flynn also helped “the Turkish leader as a lobbyist during the U.S. presidential campaign,” earning $530,000 for his work.

Smith played footage of Flynn “on the campaign trail with Donald Trump complaining about pay-for-play, as he was paid to play by a businessman that supported the Turkish leader who’s voting base is Islamic voters.”

“There’s been a lot of lying,” Smith said. “There’s been lying about who you talked to—and, by lots of people—and almost inevitable and invariably, they were lying about talking to the Russians about something.”

“It’s too much lying, and too much Russia, and too much smoke!” Smith exclaimed.

Idaho Politicians Caught Hiding Rape Of 5 Yr Old By 3 Muslim Teens!

Idaho Politicians Caught Hiding Rape Of 5 Yr Old By 3 Muslim Teens!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1015

Three Syrian refugees reportedly raped a little girl at knife point in Idaho before urinating on her body, an incident that prompted furious residents to accuse Twin Falls city council members of covering up the assault. The sexual assault allegedly took place on June 2, but has received virtually no media attention aside from one vague KMVT report.

However, residents have been circulating what really happened on social media, with the Creeping Sharia blog reporting that the victim was a young girl who was born premature and is “less developed for her age”. The victim’s grandmother found the victim and then called the girl’s mother, who called the police. The police took 2 and a half hours to arrive but were unable to take any action due to the “language barrier”. When she arrived, the mother of the alleged rapists was only able to say “no police,” while the father reportedly congratulated his 13-year-old son. Video of the entire assault was captured on the boy’s cellphone.

But according to the Idaho Statesman the Twin Falls County Prosecutor Grant Loebs says “There were no Syrians involved, there was no knife involved, there was no gang-rape,” Loeb continued "There is a small group of people in Twin Falls County whose life goal is to eliminate refugees, and thus far they have not been constrained by the truth,” Loebs said. “They have not been constrained by the truth in the past, and I don’t expect them to be constrained by the truth in the future.”

These supposed city leaders would have the good people of Twin Falls believe there isn’t an invasion of psychotic refugees gradually flooding the United States that will soon resemble the horror transpiring in Europe. Just listen to your elected leaders, they know best. Right? Well….

Where is the national media on this story? The only outrage is actually from the Politically Correct vomiting left as Snopes.com has labeled the information circulating on the web as “mostly false.” And it appears Loeb actually was right, technically. The minors accused of the assault weren’t Syrian. They were from Sudan and Iraq. And the details are hidden from public view because minors committed the heinous act. So technically Loeb's BS is correct.

But rather than protect America’s children by getting to the bottom of it. And calming any fears brewing within the local community. The Twin Falls City Council would have anyone concerned branded a bigot and a white supremacist. Around 50 Syrian “refugees” are reportedly housed at the Fawnbrook site. Council members were also grilled as to how a mosque was approved after just 24 hours, whereas a new home application would take at least 2 weeks just to process. Just another blatant example of what may be coming to or without you even knowing is currently happening in your community.

Two of President Obama’s Undocumented Alien “Children” Brutally Rape 14-Year-Old Maryland Student

Those of you who have followed the Undocumented Alien Children (UAC) story, which began in the summer of 2014, will note the nationality of two UAC’s who brutally raped a 14-Year-Old Rockville Maryland Student.

Henry Sanchez, 18, originally from Guatemala and Jose Montano, 17, a native of El Salvador, brutally raped a 14-year-old high school student on Thursday. Sanchez had a pending illegal alien removal case (deportation order) pending, which was not carried out while immigration activists tried to block the deportation.

Sanchez and Montano dragged the 14-year-old victim into a school bathroom where they repeatedly gang raped her during school session. The sickening story is partially explained in the local news coverage…

You might also remember Glenn Beck, Dana Loesch and Senator Ted Cruz going to the Texas border during the summer of 2014 to bring teddy bears and soccer balls to the future rapists.

Maryland – […] The victim told police she was walking in a school hallway on March 16 at about 9 a.m. when the two male students approached her, according to charging documents. Montano asked her twice to have sex, and after she refused, he forced her into a boys’ bathroom and then into a stall, according to police.

The student told police that Montano and Sanchez raped her multiple times, according to the court documents. She cried out in pain and repeatedly told the two students to stop, she told police.

Forensic investigators said an inspection of the boys’ bathroom later turned up suspected blood “that may be mixed with male fluid,” the court documents stated.

Sanchez and Montano were arrested at school, police said, and have been held since Thursday.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says they have a detainer on Sanchez, a citizen of Guatemala. The agency could not comment on Montano’s case since he is a minor.

In a letter to parents, Montgomery County Public Schools said school officials notified police immediately after the student reported the assault to a staff member…

EPA Finally Forced To Address Contaminated Drinking Water In Flint (And EPA Colorado Spill)

Thank You Pruitt!

EPA Finally Forced To Address Contaminated Drinking Water In Flint (And EPA Colorado Spill)

RELATED: >>>/realnews/1355

The Environmental Protection Agency awarded a $100 million grant to Michigan on Friday to fund drinking water upgrades in Flint, which suffered widespread lead contamination and became a national story last year.

"The people of Flint and all Americans deserve a more responsive federal government," said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. "EPA will especially focus on helping Michigan improve Flint's water infrastructure as part of our larger goal of improving America's water infrastructure."

The announcement came one day after the White House released its budget blueprint, outlining its plans to cut the EPA's budget by at least 31 percent and lay off 3,200 staff in an effort to shrink the federal government.

Pruitt pointed out that the Flint funds were provided by a water infrastructure bill that Congress passed late last year. The funding "enables Flint to accelerate and expand its work to replace lead service lines and make other critical infrastructure improvements," the EPA said.

The announcement came a day after Pruitt sent more than $90,000 to Utah and Colorado to help the states, tribal and local governments recover the costs of dealing with a major toxic spill in August 2015 that the EPA caused.

ALSO RELATED: >>>/realnews/9

The Obama regime said in January that it would not reimburse states for the cleanup costs associated with the 3 million gallons of toxic sludge the EPA dumped from the Gold King Mine into the Colorado river.

Pruitt said the water bill passed in December makes funds available for EPA to reimburse states affected by the Gold King spill. He said more money is in the queue to be sent and those announcements will be made at a later date.

Google Hires 10,000 Social Justice Warriors To Hide The Truth

List of some alternative search engines: >>>/realnews/2054

Google has hired a 10,000 strong social justice army to flag sites from their search results that they deem “conspiracy”, “offensive”, or “fake news.”

In a move to completely eradicate all traces of independent journalism and alternative media websites from the web, Google has begun the process of compiling a list of all offending sites so that they can “de-rank” them from their search results.

The search engine giant is hoping to address complaints from left-wing media organisations that they allowed so-called ‘fake news’ to dominate the search results and thus influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. According to Google’s senior engineer, Paul Haahr, an army of quality raters will be tasked with ensuring that websites peddling conspiracy theories or generally offensive content, are put onto a blacklist so that Google can begin removing them from the web.

“We’re explicitly avoiding the term ‘fake news,’ because we think it is too vague,” said Paul Haahr. “Demonstrably inaccurate information, however, we want to target.“

https://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.google.com/en//insidesearch/howsearchworks/assets/searchqualityevaluatorguidelines.pdf

From SearchEngineLand:

The effort revolves around Google’s quality raters, over 10,000 contractors that Google uses worldwide to evaluate search results. These raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that Google sees. They then rate pages that appear in the top results as to how good those seem as answers.

…Quality raters use a set of guidelines that are nearly 200 pages long, instructing them on how to assess website quality and whether the results they review meet the needs of those who might search for particular queries.

Those guidelines have been updated with an entirely new section about “Upsetting-Offensive” content that covers a new flag that’s been added for raters to use. Until now, pages could not be flagged by raters with this designation.

Globalists BTFO! G-20 Drops Anti-Protectionist Pledge as Trump Stance Goes Global

Finance chiefs of the world’s largest economies set aside a previous pledge to avoid protectionism and signed up to a fudged statement on trade instead, in response to the Trump administration’s call for a rethink of the global order for commerce.

The Group of 20 nations, meeting in Germany on Saturday, said in a communique that they are “working to strengthen the contribution of trade to our economies.” That’s a much pared-down formulation compared with the group’s statement last year, and also omits a promise to “avoid all forms of protectionism.”

In two days of meetings in Baden-Baden, delegates split under the pressure of the new U.S. rhetoric on the balance of global trade, with most favoring a multilateral, rules-based system as currently embodied in the World Trade Organization. The U.S., represented by Steven Mnuchin in his first appearance at an international forum as Treasury Secretary, argued that trade arrangements need to be made fairer, in line with the administration’s claims the U.S. has had a bad deal from the current setup.

The impasse reflects the atmosphere the previous day at the White House, where U.S. President Donald Trump met German Chancellor Angela Merkel and repeated his complaints that his country has been treated “very, very unfairly” in trade arrangements.

“We met at a time when the global economic recovery is progressing,” the official communique stated. “But the pace of growth is still weaker than desirable and downside risks for the global economy remain. We reaffirm our commitment to international economic and financial cooperation.”

While delegates greeted Mnuchin and said that he had been engaged in the process, it wasn’t possible to reconcile the U.S. stance and that of the other members in any substantive way. Officials may continue to seek greater consensus on trade between now and the G-20 leaders summit in Hamburg in July.

The communique also committed to “further strengthening the global financial architecture” and said members support work to finalize the Basel III framework on bank regulations. It dropped a reference to climate change, in the face of resistance from countries including the U.S., China, India and Saudi Arabia.

G-20 Drops Anti-Protectionist, So-called 'Free-Trade' & Climate-Change Funding Commitment

This would break with a decade-old tradition among the finance ministers and central bankers of the world's 20 top economies (G20), who over the years have repeatedly rejected protectionism and endorsed free trade.

But the new administration in the United States is considering trade measures to curb imports with a border tax and would not agree to repeat the formulations used by previous G20 communiques, clashing with China and Europe, the officials said.

"Unless there is a last minute miracle, there is no agreement on trade," one official, who declined to be named, told Reuters. "This is not a good outcome of the meeting," a G20 delegate quoted Bundesbank President Jens Weidmann as saying.

The new communique said: “We are working to strengthen the contribution of trade to our economies. We will strive to reduce excessive global imbalances, promote greater inclusiveness and fairness and reduce inequality in our pursuit of economic growth.”

The watered-down commitments on free trade reflected the anti-globalisation mood that Donald Trump has brought to Washington and came in the first G20 meetings between Steven Mnuchin, the new US Treasury Secretary, and his foreign counterparts.

US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin spoke to reporters after the meeting:

MNUCHIN: LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING CLOSELY W/ G-20 COLLEAGUES

MNUCHIN: CONFIDENT US CAN WORK CONSTRUCTIVELY WITH PARTNERS

MNUCHIN: US BELIEVES IN FREE, BALANCED TRADE

MNUCHIN SAYS WILL LOOK AT TRADE SURPLUSES WITH VIEW TO CORRECT

MNUCHIN SAYS MULTILATERAL AGREEMENTS HAVE VERY IMPORTANT PLACE

MNUCHIN SAYS US WANTS TO RE-EXAMINE TRADE DEALS INCLUDING NAFTA

MNUCHIN: US BELIEVES IN APPROPRIATE REGULATION

MNUCHIN SAYS IMPORTANT BANKS CAN PROVIDE LIQUIDITY IN MARKETS

Reuters also points out another potential win for Trump as the communique will also drop a reference, used by the G20 last year, on the readiness to finance climate change as agreed in Paris in 2015 because of opposition from the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Trump has called global warming a "hoax" concocted by China to hurt U.S. industry and vowed to scrap the Paris climate accord aimed at curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Trump's administration on Thursday proposed a 31 percent cut to the Environmental Protection Agency's budget as the White House seeks to eliminate climate change programs and trim initiatives to protect air and water quality.

Asked about climate change funding, Mick Mulvaney, Trump's budget director, said on Thursday, "We consider that to be a waste of money."

White people are evil. Whiteness is evil.

Several white supremacists and isolated nerds have been reported commiting suicide this morning, according to the WHO, following a shocking statement from brave race-mixed journalist Lara Witt, reminding us of the White Plague and it's toll on society.

Although many Twitter trolls have joined forces to harrass and mass report Lara, she is still standing strong and more suicides are expected, highlighting the issues of white frailty and manchildren trapped in the bodies of grown men.

On a brighter note, nothing of value will be lost, and perhaps examining the brains of the supremacists we can find what's wrong with white people.

Good! IBM to Hire 2,000 American Vets After Meeting With Prez Trump

Sponsored by >>>/goodnews/

The Trump jobs boom continues, with computer giant IBM announcing that it is set to hire 2,000 veterans of the U.S. Military after a meeting with President Donald J. Trump.

IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, who serves on Trump’s business advisory board, is to announce the new plans on Friday.

The company intends to open 20 new P-TECH schools in the U.S. and will retrain and certify the veterans over a four-year period, Axios reported.

Many of the veterans will be trained in the use of IBM’s software programs used by law enforcement, cybersecurity, and national security agencies.

IBM joins a growing list of companies announcing major expansion in the age of Trump. The list includes 45,000 jobs announced by Exxon Mobil, 10,000 new jobs at Kroger, 10,000 jobs at Walmart, another 10,000 jobs to be offered by U.S. Steel, and 50,000 by SoftBank Telecommunications, among many others.

Good! Trump Budget Proposes to End Obama's Tyrannical Anti-American Federal Land Grabs

Donald Trump has pledged to end the federal acquisition of land, which rose by record levels under Barack Obama, and instead invest in preserving its current holdings as part of a series of interior reforms in the Trump White House’s first budget proposals.

The budget proposes that it will “reduce funding for lower priority activities,” such as new major acquisitions of federal land. The Budget reduces land acquisition funding by more than $120 million from the 2017 annualized CR level and would instead focus available discretionary funds on investing in, and maintaining, existing national parks, refuges and public lands.

In December 2016, Obama decreed two more national monuments to federal ownership, the new Bear Ears Buttes monument in Nevada and the Gold Butte monument in Utah, on the grounds of conservation and protection using the 1906 Antiquities act.

The move was overwhelmingly opposed by Republican lawmakers, with Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee describing it as an “arrogant act” designed to overrule the state legislator and public opposition to its seizure.

Obama’s final land grab took the total acres of land seized by the federal government under his presidency to 553 million acres, more than any other president in history.

The federal government currently controls 25 percent of all land in the U.S, 50 percent of land west of Colorado, and 85 percent of land across the Nevada desert.

WOW! Venezuela Has a Bread Shortage... Their Socialist Government Decides To Jail Bakers

Talk about blaming the victims!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/349

Facing a bread shortage that is spawning massive lines and souring the national mood, the socialist Venezuelan government is responding this week by detaining bakers and seizing establishments.

In a press release, the National Superintendent for the Defense of Socioeconomic Rights said it had charged four people and temporarily seized two bakeries as the socialist administration accused bakers of being part of a broad “economic war” aimed at destabilizing the country.

In a statement, the government said the bakers had been selling underweight bread and were using price-regulated flour to illegally make specialty items, like sweet rolls and croissants.

The government said bakeries are only allowed to produce French bread and white loaves, or pan canilla, with government-imported flour. However, in a tweet on Thursday, price control czar William Contreras said only 90 percent of baked goods had to be price-controlled products.

Two bakeries were also seized for 90 days for breaking a number of rules, including selling overpriced bread.

Juan Crespo, the president of the Industrial Flour Union called Sintra-Harina, which represents 9,000 bakeries nationwide, said the government’s heavy hand isn’t going to solve the problem.

“The government isn’t importing enough wheat,” he said. “If you don’t have wheat, you don’t have flour, and if you don’t have flour, you don’t have bread.”

He said the country needs four, 30-ton boats of wheat every month to cover basic demand.

The notion that bread could become an issue in Venezuela is one more indictment of an economic system gone bust. The country boasts the world’s largest oil reserves but it has to import just about everything else. Facing a cash crunch, the government has dramatically cut back imports, sparking shortages, massive lines and fueling triple-digit inflation.

Earlier this week, President Nicolás Maduro launched “Plan 700” against what he called a “bread war,” ordering officials to do spot checks of bakeries nationwide. In the plan, the government said it would not allow people to stand in line for bread but it’s unclear how it might enforce the order.

“The government is doing everything in its power to end the bread lines,” Crespo said, “but they’re looking at the whole thing backwards.”

Soylent Green! Turns Out Your Burger Has Rat Meat and Human DNA In It

RELATED: >>>/rationalnews/43 (http://archive.is/fAq2K)

Yeah bad news in a way: a new study of anonymous burger samples has found many of them contain stuff like rat DNA, human DNA, and in certain vegetarian products, traces of meat. I dunno I just think, like… even though I know this information, I'm still going to eat burgers. Like I'm still going to do that to myself. I'm still going to eat burgers, even if I actively know now they got rat and jizz in the. Which makes me wonder: what would a burger have to do for me to not spend £12* on one next time I'm in the fucking pub? Burgers somehow organise an air strike on my hometown, thousands of burgers pelting into the concrete, hundreds dead? Even then I feel like I would forgive the low combination of meat and bread. O, burger! I am ever a servant in your greasy thrall.

Would just like to forestall the northern commenters who come down here and remind us that things cost less than the national average in the north, "EY UP," the northern commentariat are saying, "YER CAN GET A SMALL ROUND DISK OF GREY MEAT BETWEEN A BIG DRIPPING COB FOR HALF A CROWN IN LEEDS, WHAT YER SAYING TWELVE POUND FOR?" treating me as if I am some idiot princeling for not knowing the price of things, that I am Elton John being quizzed on how much a pint of milk costs and saying, "I don't know, darling: twenty pounds? Thirty?" but I can assure you, northerners: I have paid £12 for a burger in a pub before. On more than one occasion. And every time I can review said rat 'n' cum burger as being 'okay, I guess'.

Anyway the study was undertaken by a company called Clear Labs, who got a big fuck off genome sequencer and put it to the test on 258 various anonimised burger samples. The burgers – variously fresh ground meat, frozen patties, vegetarian pea 'n' potato pucks and fast food samples – came from 79 brands across 22 retailers, and were screened for protein, carbohydrate and fat content as well as 'authenticity' i.e. were they the meat they said they were. Of the samples, three tested positive for rat DNA, one had human DNA in there, and 13% of the meat products were found to be in some way problematic (4.3% of samples contained pathogenic DNA, for instance). Of the vegetarian samples, 23% were found to be problematic with two samples containing traces of beef. A black bean burger was found to have no black beans in it.

Reacting to the findings, Dr Michael Doyle of the University of Georgia said: "Finding the DNA of salmonella or E.coli from a dead cell is not very helpful. Secondly, the pathogens they find, such as Yersinia enterocolitica and Aeromonas hydrophila, are not of common concern in foods.

"In terms of Clostridium perfrigens, you usually need to have millions of cells in the food in order to cause illness. And, it's not uncommon to find low levels in meats, which contain some C. perfringens naturally." So, basically: cook your burgers and don't eat anything with millions of cells of poison in and you should more or less be fine. Something to bear in mind this weekend when you and all 8.5 million of the other residents of the city descend on London Fields this weekend to do shit barbecues and play obnoxiously spread out games of frisbee together.

About Time! CEO Makes Potential Employees Take a ‘Snowflake Test’ Before Hiring

Kyle S. Reyes, CEO of The Silent Partner Marketing, claims he makes potential employees take a “snowflake test” before hiring them, in a new article for the New Boston Post.

In the article, Reyes explained how his test works, and what questions it includes.

“I don’t want most people to work for my company. No, seriously. Most people suck,” wrote Reyes. “And I want people to work for me who don’t suck… So I’ve implemented something that is going to give HR managers and the PC Police night sweats. I lovingly refer to it as The Snowflake Test.”

“Anyone who may be a viable candidate for our agency has to take the test before they get an at-bat at an interview,” he continued. “It’s 30 short-answer and essay-style questions that help us to really get to know a candidate. We want to get in their heads. See how they apply logic and reason to different scenarios. See what makes them tick. See if they’d be a good fit for our culture.”

The test includes questions on how the applicant feels about guns, safe spaces, and trigger warnings, as well as some which are more personal and complex.

“When was the last time you cried and why?” is allegedly one, as well as “You see someone stepping on an American Flag. What happens next?”

“Since I launched this ‘filtering’ process, if you will, I’ve gotten a tremendous amount of whining from the general public,” claimed Reyes, added that he was “scolded by a woman on the phone yesterday who told me she wouldn’t take the test and ‘shame’ on me for making people take a test to come work for us.”

“She “demanded” I remove the test or risk losing out on ‘perfect employees’ like herself,” he claimed. “Bummer. Well, snowflake, it’s back to the heaping pile of applications for me.”

Google launches new effort to flag upsetting or offensive content in search

Google is undertaking a new effort to better identify content that is potentially upsetting or offensive to searchers. It hopes this will prevent such content from crowding out factual, accurate and trustworthy information in the top search results.

“We’re explicitly avoiding the term ‘fake news,’ because we think it is too vague,” said Paul Haahr, one of Google’s senior engineers who is involved with search quality. “Demonstrably inaccurate information, however, we want to target.”

New role for Google’s army of ‘quality raters’

The effort revolves around Google’s quality raters, over 10,000 contractors that Google uses worldwide to evaluate search results. These raters are given actual searches to conduct, drawn from real searches that Google sees. They then rate pages that appear in the top results as to how good those seem as answers.

Quality raters do not have the power to alter Google’s results directly. A rater marking a particular result as low quality will not cause that page to plunge in rankings. Instead, the data produced by quality raters is used to improve Google’s search algorithms generally. In time, that data might have an impact on low-quality pages that are spotted by raters, as well as on others that weren’t reviewed.

Kim Dotcom's 'Caught in the Web' Documentary Premiers at SXSW

The documentary “Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web” debuted at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas this week.

The highly-anticipated film centers around the internet entrepreneur, who is also known as the “most wanted man online,” and his ongoing battle against the US government.

Dotcom famously founded the massively successful file-sharing website “Megaupload,” which allowed countless internet users to share content online.

The service drew the ire of both US authorities and the entertainment industry who accused the website of costing Hollywood more than $500 million in lost revenue.

The story came to a head after Dotcom’s mansion in New Zealand was raided by both local police and the FBI.

“Caught in the Web” reveals just how dangerous internet pioneers have become to the entertainment gatekeepers in film & television.

Good! UK Parliament Gives Theresa May Approval To Start Brexit

RELATED: >>>/goodnews/134

Moments ago, UK Parliament passed legislation giving prime minister Theresa May approval to start the Brexit process and allowing the government to invoke Article 50, with the House of Commons overturning amendments from the unelected House of Lords that sought to limit May’s room for maneuver. While press reports earlier said May could trigger Article 50 as early as Thursday, subsequent reports from Bloomberg suggested that she will commence Brexit in the last week of March.

The victory for May in Parliament, where she has a slim majority, allows her to negotiate Brexit with a free hand and consolidates her hold on power in the ruling Conservative Party. That said, according to Bloomberg she now faces the simultaneous challenge of pulling Britain out of the EU on good terms while navigating a second constitutional upheaval: Scotland’s renewed bid for independence.

On Monday evening, lawmakers rejected two revisions by unelected peers which would have guaranteed rights for EU citizens living in the U.K. and given Parliament a final binding say on what May negotiates with the EU. The government argued against the changes, saying it wanted to preserve May’s flexibility in the talks. While some Tories had signaled they might vote against the government, several would-be rebels fell into line, or abstained. As Bloomberg adds, May will address the House of Commons on Tuesday, although she isn’t expected to fire the starting gun on exit talks yet.

Waiting until the end of the month will avoid souring the March 25 celebrations in Rome of the 60th anniversary of the EU’s founding treaty and allow her to avoid the Dutch election on March 15 and the Scottish National Party’s conference on March 17-18. With March 26 a Sunday and the British Parliament on recess on March 31, the likeliest days for the notification are March 27 to March 30, a Bloomberg source said.

Once May pulls the plug, the EU would respond to an Article 50 notification within 48 hours European Council President Donald Tusk said last week that. The European Commission will then publish legal rules for the talks, spokesman Margaritis Schinas said on Tuesday.

Potentially complicating matters for May is the announcement earlier on Monday by Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that in one week she would start the process of getting permission to hold a second independence referendum. Scotland voted to remain in the EU and Sturgeon says May’s determination to take Britain out of the single market against Scotland’s wishes makes a plebiscite necessary to address a “democratic deficit.”

As Bloomberg notes, Sturgeon’s threat means the harder the break with the EU, the louder the calls for Scotland to secede will be. Nick Macpherson, a former Treasury official, last week tweeted that the government’s “uncompromising approach to tearing up partial membership” of the EU was “putting at risk the 300 year Union which made Britain Great.”

As for the market's reaction, with sterling having tumbled in recent weeks, the response to the news was non-existent, as cable barely moved by 5 pips.

Fox News’s Shepard Smith blasts Trump’s “fake news” attacks on CNN

Smith argued that, on Russia, “We’re not fools for asking these questions. And we demand to know the answer to this question.”

President Donald Trump’s rambling, off-the-cuff news conference on Thursday focused a lot on attacking the media, but it especially focused on attacking CNN, which Trump said was full of “anger and hatred” and “fake news” — largely because the cable news network had reported on Trump’s bizarre ties to Russia.

Shepard Smith, an anchor at rival media organization Fox News, was not having it. In a brief message to the president, Smith blasted Trump for his treatment of the media and specifically CNN reporters:

It’s crazy what we’re watching every day. It’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question. Really? Your opposition was hacked, and the Russians were responsible for it, and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening, and we’re fools for asking the questions?

No, sir. We’re not fools for asking these questions. And we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people. Your supporters will support you either way. If your people were on the phone with her, what were they saying? We have a right to know. We absolutely do.

And that you call us “fake news” and put us down like children for asking these questions on behalf of the American people is inconsequential. The people deserve that answer at very least.

For Trump, this moment has to sting a bit. Although he has criticized CNN, he has said that Fox News is friendly and “very nice” to him. For a Fox News anchor to go out of his way to slam Trump’s reactions to basic questions, then, might carry more weight for the president.

Can Trump be removed without impeachment?

According to Section 4 of the 25th Amendment, Congress can form its own body to evaluate Trump’s fitness to govern that would be able to sidestep his cabinet. This body would not need any medical diagnosis of Trump and could compose its own criteria to judge the president’s ability to govern.

There is good reason to expect more outrageous claims because more distractions will be necessary for a clueless president without a rudder of intelligence or decency.

With the arrival of the Trump administration we have a state of governance in which no matter where you turn there is either paralysis or uncertainty. The Supreme Court is in a deadlock; we have an attorney general who had to recuse himself from involvement in a major issue; a Congress without a compass, moral or otherwise; and an incoming secretary of housing who doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.

And topping off this discombobulation is a president whose latest early morning tweets is to blame President Obama for tapping his phones during the last election.

So, what’s to be done? Can we start at the top of the government with the removal of the president to clean up this mess?

there has been talk about invoking the 25th Amendment and a provision that allows the vice president and most the cabinet to author a letter to Congress indicating the president’s inability to “discharge the duties of his office.”

When a sitting president accuses a former president of tapping his phones, there is a clear indication that he’s out of touch. First, the president is not authorized to call for such action. That’s a process that must be court-ordered and approved by the attorney general, who is practically, now, dysfunctional.

When authorities responded to a “shots fired” call in the rural community of Fronton, Texas, they discovered what witnesses are saying is a case of cross border violence.

Federal authorities found two fishermen who had been injured and a third killed by gunfire. The two survivors are expected to recover.

According to KRGV (http://archive.is/5BqPi), the men were fishing, minding their own business, when a group of suspected gunmen from the Mexican side fired on them for no apparent reason.

No additional information was released, and the investigation is ongoing at this time.

This deadly shooting comes just months after a man was murdered at Falcon Lake by cartel gunmen. Falcon Lake is an area frequently used by Los Zetas for illegal activity such as smuggling drugs and illegal immigrants into the U.S.

On the flag were the words: “He Will Not Divide Us.”

LaBeouf’s appearances around the area stirred a frenzy of speculation on social media, and on Monday, March 6, photos of him at places such as Aunt Bea’s restaurant began circulating online. At that time, only Bewley and a few others knew why LaBeouf was in town.

By Friday, he was gone. But so was the flag he and a collaborating artist mounted on Bewley’s property.

The flag, the latest iteration of a series of performing art pieces LaBeouf and fellow artists had displayed previously in New York City and Albuquerque, N.M., had been taken by a group of people opposing the “He Will Not Divide Us” art pieces.

Bewley, meanwhile, said in interviews Sunday and Monday that since the flag went on her property — and was subsequently aired on a livestream web feed as part of the project — she and her family have dealt with people trespassing there and even a small fire in one of her fields, started after fireworks were shot into her yard.

‘HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US’

The art piece, “He Will Not Divide Us,” is the latest collaboration between LaBeouf and artists Luke Turner and Nastja Rönkkö, who have been working together on several art projects since 2014.

“He Will not Divide Us” originally began as a message written on a wall at the Museuem of the Moving Image in New York. There, participants were encouraged to speak the words repeatedly into a camera mounted on the wall. The piece went up the day of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration.

A description on the artists’ website, thecampaignbook.com, says, “Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed at www.hewillnotdivide.us continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra ‘HE WILL NOT DIVIDE US’ acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community.”

But, according to the Associated Press, in mid-February, after LaBeouf got into an altercation with someone protesting the art piece, it was moved to Albuquerque. At the time, all LaBeouf said to a reporter there was, “We are anti the normalization of division,” the AP reported. “That’s it. The rest of the info is right there, chief, I got nothing else to say to you.”

LaBeouf faces a misdemeanor assault charge in New York after the incident there.

But just days after the piece went up in New Mexico, after gunshots were heard nearby, it was taken down again.

GETTING TO GREENEVILLE

It was soon after that that Bewley said she got a call from the artists, wanting to move the piece and continue it — in an undisclosed location.

Instead of inviting participants to speak, “He will not divide us” into a camera, this time the piece would consist of a livestream of a white flag, with the phrase written on it in all capital letters. Nothing would be visible in the camera shot other than the flag flying in the sky.

It wasn’t the first time Bewley had worked with LaBeouf, Turner and Rönkkö. She met the trio at an art show in Colorado in 2016. Bewley, who said she majored in art in college and has always had an interest in art, then volunteered for another collaborative art piece last year in which random people volunteered to drive the trio from one point to another as they hitchhiked across parts of the U.S.

Bewley picked them up in Tallahassee, Fla., and drove into North Carolina. They drove right through Greene County.

When she got the call that LaBeouf, Turner and Rönkkö, wanted to move “He Will Not Divide Us” onto her property, she quickly said yes…

==SNIP==

Authorities were able to find references to the flag, seemingly linking users at 4chan.org to the heist.

“I did go online to see what the flag looked like and I did see multiple websites talking about someone named 4chan capturing the enemy flag, talking about a ‘He Will Not Divide Us’ flag,” Deputy Travis Hoxie’s report says. “I am unsure if they are talking about the same flag but they were put up recently.”

That narrative in Hoxie’s report aligns with several blogs and other online media outlets that apparently incorrectly attributed multiple anonymous 4chan.org posters involved in the scheme Friday as “a hacker called 4chan…”

Social Justice Syndrome: ‘Rising Tide of Personality Disorders Among Millennials’

If you were to come across someone who cried in the streets, who saw the world in terms of black and white and made death threats against strangers, who cowered in a special room and made public displays of naked self-harm and blood letting, you might conclude that they were suffering from a personality disorder.

All these symptoms can be found in the High Conflict Personality Disorder category known as Axis II in DSMV, including Anti-Social PD, Histrionic PD, Paranoid PD, Narcissistic PD, and Borderline PD.

Alternatively, you might reason that these are the everyday behaviors of the modern Social Justice Warrior (SJW).

Of course, not every SJW has a personality condition, but sufferers from High Conflict disorders are often drawn to extreme beliefs and behaviors under the illusion that they are acting politically.

A 2016 UK survey found that, since 1990, rates of depression and anxiety among the young have increased by 70%, while the American Counseling Association has reported a “rising tide of personality disorders among millennials.”

That such disorders appear to be an acute problem with this generation may be an unintended outcome of the unprecedented experiment conducted in the 1990s and 2000s by progressive parents.

Persecution Complex and the "Safe Space"

In 2014, a survey of 100,000 college students at 53 U.S. campuses by the American College Health Association found that 84% of U.S. students feel unable to cope, while more than half experience overwhelming anxiety.

A byproduct of such fear has been the growth of the “safe space,” a safe-haven for minority groups and distressed students from what they perceive as threats within campus life. Safe spaces contain comforting objects that evoke childhood – bean bags, soothing music, Play-Doh, coloring books. The spaces often forbid entry to straight white men or political opponents.

The idea of “running to the safe space” is a form of psychological regression. The safe space presents a fantasy barrier against imagined exterior evils, and so encourages persecution paranoia and hyper-fragility. These are all symptoms of histrionic, borderline, and paranoid personality disorders that emerge from problems with the early child-parent bond.

The majority of millennial children (now aged 18-34) had two working parents; this was partly an ideological project of feminism and partly economic necessity. The downside was the damage done by daycare, services for which grew by 250% between the 1970s and ;90s (see Laura Perrins’ work on psychological trauma caused by daycare). According to Bowlby’s Maternal Deprivation Thesis, babies require two years of intimate attention to enable them to form the caregiver-child bond essential for secure ego formation. Any disturbance of this process will “predispose the children to respond in an anti-social way to later stresses.”

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has found:

Children in full-time day care were close to three times more likely to show behavior problems than those cared for by their mothers at home.

The more time in child care of any kind or quality, the more aggressive the child.

The result is young people who, a decade and a half after daycare, scream at the parent/State for not protecting them sufficiently. It is no coincidence that “safe spaces” resemble daycare centers.

Unfortunately, “safe spaces” enforce the distressed person’s fear of the world, trapping them in their original trauma within a psychological frame of permanent and inescapable victimhood.

“Trigger Warnings” and “Helicopter Parents”

For the SJW, everyday speech contains a multitude of “microaggressions,” or subconscious power dynamics which conceal colonial or patriarchal oppression. Failing to use the words prescribed by SJW activists – most particularly in the case of “trans-people” – is seen as an act of violence equivalent to physical assault. See, for example, a statement made by a protester at UC Berkeley in January 2017 at a protest event that turned into a violent riot:

Your free speech is raping and killing us.

People with High Conflict Personality disorders experience similarly paranoid emotions about hidden messages, omnipotent threats, and imminent violence. They are hyper-alert and live with higher than normal levels of cortisol and adrenalin, which in turn causes lasting neurological damage, affecting their ability to reason and to regulate emotion. They panic easily and regress to infantile distress…

Breakdown: Donald Trump Actually Did Shake Angela Merkel’s Hand, Media Freakout Ensues Anyway

President Donald Trump did, in fact, shake hands with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her White House trip—but it was before the cameras were rolling. They also shook hands at the podium.

Headlines blared that Trump “refused” to shake Merkel’s hand on camera as they were sitting in the White House, with some media outlets describing it as “awkward.”

“Do you want a handshake?” she asked as photographers took their picture. Trump didn’t respond and then Merkel reacted.

Previously, Trump shook the hands of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Japanese leader Shinzo Abe, and he appeared to hold the hand of U.K. Prime Minister Teresa May when she visited the White House.

Fascist Neo-cons Still In Power? US Airstrike Kills Dozens Of Innocent Civilians Near Aleppo

RELATED: >>>/realnews/2024

At least 42 Syrian civilians were killed and over 100 injured when US warplanes bombed a mosque full of worshipers during evening prayers on Thursday.

The air strikes hit the village of al-Jineh, just over 30 km west of Aleppo according to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

US Central Command admitted it carried out a strike targeting al-Qaeda militants nearby but say it did not target a house of worship.

The Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has called US troops in Syria invaders because under international law foreign governments cannot deploy troops to sovereign countries.

Press TV reports: http://archive.is/EJY31

The US military confirmed that it had carried out a deadly airstrike in northern Syria and would investigate reports that civilians were killed when a mosque was struck in the raid.

The observatory said many people were still trapped under the collapsed mosque as rescue workers struggled to pull survivors from rubble, and dozens of residents were still unaccounted for.

Jineh is in the western Aleppo countryside, which along with Idlib is home to hundreds of thousands of Syrians displaced by fighting in other areas.

Abu Muhammed, a village resident, told AFP he heard powerful explosions when the mosque was hit. “It was right after the prayer at a time where there are usually religious lessons for men in it,” he said.

“I saw 15 bodies and lots of body parts in the debris when I arrived. We couldn’t even recognize some of the bodies,” he added.

The US-led coalition has been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh terrorists inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate. It has alo been involved in a similar campaign in neighboring Iraq.

The alliance has on many occasions attacked Syrian civilians, military and infrastructure under the guise of fighting the terror group.

There are also reports that the US-led attacks have on numerous occasions hampered counterterrorism operations by Syrian armed forces.

The latest US air raid came just after Syria contacted the United Nations to warn against an imminent disaster in the wake of air raids by the US-led military coalition close to the Euphrates and Tishrin dams.

Air Force colonel sentenced for child porn

A colonel was sentenced Friday to 12 months in prison in South Carolina – and dismissed from the U.S. Air Force – after he pleaded guilty in a child pornography scandal.

Col. William Jones, former 20th Fighter Wing vice commander, was sentenced on Shaw Air Force Base. It took Judge J. Wesley Moore less than 2 1/2 hours to hand down the sentencing. Jones’ wife and daughter hugged each other as the judge read the verdict.

The South Carolina Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force notified the Air Force Office of Special Investigation (OSI) that they had a reason to believe someone living on Shaw AFB was downloading child pornography from the Internet. OSI began investigating the claims and it led them to Jones.

More than 7,000 images and 10 videos were found in a folder labeled “jail bait” on an external hard drive owned by Jones. Also found on the hard drive was a classified document. Images also were found on his laptop, desktop computer, and iPhone.

Allahu Akbar! Father and Brother Found With Throats Slit in Paris, Islamic Terrorism SNUBBED!

Allahu Akbar!

Father and Brother Found With Throats Slit in Paris

WITNESSES SAY THEY HEARD THE MURDER SCREAMING ALLAHU AKBAR

Islamic Terrorism SNUBBED By French Police!

POLITICALLY CORRECT POLICE REFUSE TO INVESTIGATE ISLAMIC TERRORIST, FAMILY MEMBER OF VICTIMS ARRESTED INSTEAD!

RELATED: >>>/realnews/364

Some witnesses said the suspect made remarks "linked to radical Islam" but the police urged caution, saying the killer's motives were unknown.

Newspaper Le Figaro cited a police source who said the knifeman shouted "Allahu Akbar" ('God is greatest', in Arabic).

Police in Paris have launched an investigation after two men, a father and his son, were found with their throats slit in the French capital. Another son has been arrested in connection with the murders.

A man was arrested in Paris on Friday suspected of slitting the throats of his father and brother (WTF?) at the entrance to a building in the capital's trendy 11th district (again, WTF?), police sources told AFP.

Police had sealed off a section of the street around the building. No further details on the suspect or the victims were immediately available.

Looks like an innocent victim who just had their father and brother killed from an Islamic terrorist is now going to prison, because of political correctness! Absolutely horrific!

Proof Modern Life Really Does Kill You Faster

Modern life really does kill after a remote tribe living deep in the Amazon were found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied.

A new study estimates that an 80-year-old from the Tsimane has the same vascular age as an American in their mid-fifties.

Heart rate, blood pressure , cholesterol, and blood glucose were also much lower, probably as a result of the tribe's lifestyle, according to the researchers.

The indigenous Tsimane people, who live in the Bolivian Amazon, have the lowest reported levels of vascular ageing for any population.

Hardening of the arteries, known as coronary atherosclerosis, which leads to coronary heart disease and angina is FIVE TIMES less common than in the US, according to the research published in The Lancet.

Unlike people in first world, the Tsimane survive on a diet low in saturated fats and high in non-processed foods.

The researchers suggests that the loss of subsistence diets and lifestyles in modern society could be classed as a new risk factor for heart disease.

The main risk factors are age, smoking, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, physical inactivity, obesity and diabetes.

Senior anthropology author Professor Hillard Kaplan, of the University of New Mexico, said: "Our study shows that the Tsimane indigenous South Americans have the lowest prevalence of coronary atherosclerosis of any population yet studied.

"Their lifestyle suggests that a diet low in saturated fats and high in non-processed fibre-rich carbohydrates, along with wild game and fish, not smoking and being active throughout the day could help prevent hardening in the arteries of the heart.

"The loss of subsistence diets and lifestyles could be classed as a new risk factor for vascular ageing and we believe that components of this way of life could benefit contemporary sedentary populations."

Although the Tsimane lifestyle is very different from that of modern society, Prof Kaplan says some elements of it are "transferable" and could help to reduce the risk of heart disease.

RINO Ryan Recieving Funds From Liberal Shareblue SuperPAC..... WHY?

POSSIBLY RELATED: >>524449 (http://archive.is/Ffbnl)

Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and other democrats actively receive campaign donations from ActBlue. According to OpenSecrets.org, Paul Ryan and Rob Portman are the only republicans to ever accept campaign donations from ActBlue.

The similarly named Shareblue SuperPAC publicly works with ActBlue as seen here on Twitter.

John McCain admitted to being an early adopter of ActBlue’s online marketing strategy. However, he is not listed as receiving funds from ActBlue.

ActBlue bills itself as “the online clearinghouse for Democratic action.” As a federally registered political action committee, it serves as a conduit for online contributions to Democratic candidates and committees. That is, ActBlue bundles and transmits earmarked contributions from individuals raised on their website to specific candidates.

The organization assists Democratic candidates and committees of all ideological persuasion, helping moderates and liberals alike. Through mid-2010, it has helped funnel more than $134 million — and counting — in contributions. Because much of that money comes in donations below the $200 threshold for itemized disclosure, the total amount given by donors via ActBlue is considerably greater than the totals listed below, which are based on FEC filings of candidates and committees that receive this money.
