The death of the mediawhores



POSTED JUNE 22, 2018


Joseph Stalin was quoted as saying “One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic”. Guess what? America is there. Over the past couple of weeks, we in America have been subjected to the never ending crying jag concerning children coming over the U.S. border illegally. The mediwhores have claimed these children were separated from their parents by U.S. officials. The facts show these situations are substantially in the minority, but of course that is not the purpose of this contrived issue. The purpose is political. As I posted a couple of days ago, if the leftists' tears shed for the immigrant children were real, then there would be more tears shed for the children killed and crippled by American and American sponsored actions in these never ending wars.

This brings me to the subject article. I know I've covered this before, but this is so important I'm going to visit it again. It has been said that when America ceases to be good, it will cease to be great. Ignoring the ongoing slaughter of innocent men, women and children world wide is unconscionable. Yet, we here, pretend it doesn't exist. There was a similar situation in Nazi Germany. Most Germans weren't really evil, they were in denial. Despite the facts and the testimony of those affected, they chose to ignore the torture and killing of those who “weren't them”. During the upcoming war, 20 million of the 60 million Germans died. It is the duty of every decent person to value the lives of everyone, not just those they choose to value.

What Kind Of Country Are We?

That’s what Time magazine tweeted this morning. It is trying to place the blame for Trump’s immigration policy - specifically, his separation policy - on all Americans.

Time wants us to stand up for the children.

But Time says nothing about the slaughter and starvation of children in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and in particular Yemen. The US is assisting the Saudis in their genocidal war against the Houthi. It’s helping the fascists in Ukraine kill civilians in Donbas. It’s selling murder hardware to dictators and sadists. 

When was the last time they did a cover denouncing Trump for his bombing campaigns in Syria and Iraq that have killed thousands of civilians? Are dead babies buried in rubble less important than immigrants from Mexico and Honduras? 

Time’s publisher, Henry Luce, had a close relationship with the CIA.  CIA employees traveled with Time-Life credentials as cover in the 1950s. The Luce family financed efforts to kill Fidel Castro. 

“In the 1950s and early 1960s, Time magazine’s foreign correspondents attended CIA ‘briefing’ dinners similar to those the CIA held for CBS,” writes Carl Bernstein. “And Luce, according to CIA officials, made it a regular practice to brief Dulles or other high Agency officials when he returned from his frequent trips abroad. Luce and the men who ran his magazines in the 1950s and 1960s encouraged their foreign correspondents to provide help to the CIA, particularly information that might be useful to the Agency for intelligence purposes or recruiting foreigners.”

Luce is long gone and Time - a staunch Republican periodical during his time - has since embraced the establishment’s shift to “progressive” politics. It is now the preferred political control mechanism. 

The rotting piles of corpses - many of them children - in the Middle East and Africa will never make it to the cover of Time magazine. Endless war does not elicit the same kind of squishy humanism on the part of Democrats and liberals as the mistreatment of children crossing the border. 

The establishment hates Donald Trump even as he goes along with the agenda - the same agenda followed by Obama, Bush, and Clinton. He’s an outlier. It was Hillary’s turn and Democrats are pissed this brusque former casino and real estate magnate “stole” the election by exploiting the anger of the American people. 

Not much has changed. We are still the kind of people who turn our backs on the victims of endless war in the name of a crumbling empire.
Our emotions are manipulated by the state and its propaganda media. 

Are we the kind of people who will ever wake up and discover the political system in America is controlled by the elite, the financial class and its groomed and paid off political hacks who take money from banksters and death merchants? 

The possibility grows more remote with each passing day.

The subject article authored by former Under Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Craig Roberts, laments the loss of freedom in what was once, the home of the free. He covers a few examples, but it would take thousands of pages to cover them all.

Last year, my wife and I attended a local fair. There were animals and rides and food – the usual stuff. Every person entering had to undergo a search. No one was permitted to have a pocket knife or anything else those in charge feel could be dangerous (I guess the knives provided by those selling food are safe). Because of political correctness, authorities can no longer target those who may be considered likely to cause trouble. Those with gang tattoos are now lumped in with senior citizens. Someone drives drunk on the highway, everyone is pulled over at checkpoints. We're all guilty until proven innocent. Actually, that is collectivism. The theory advanced by Karl Marx. You even see it in the corporate work place. If someone violates a rule, emails threatening punishment is sent to everyone.

A few months ago, those in charge of my church decided to require background checks on anyone working with children. No, there have been no problems, but the hysteria sweeping America has infected everyone. What was not revealed to those volunteers to allow these background checks, is that those “checks” cover everything. Much of it has nothing to do with the safety of children. Indeed, criminal convictions are a matter of public record. Checking that is available to anyone.

Here are some of the things revealed in background checks: A check of a candidate’s background may include employment, education, criminal records, credit history, motor vehicle and license record checks.

In questioning the official story on the events of 911, I have often been asked “why would they do that?" Almost 17 years later, the police state birthed from this false flag answers that question. More power – Papers please!

Paul Craig Roberts

Dear Readers, In the Western World truth, justice, and liberty are in total collapse. They cannot be resurrected and restored without information. Few people have that information. The young are born into what exists, and as the tyranny increases year by year, tyranny becomes the natural order to them. Indeed, they do not recognize tyranny. Their cell phones, social media, and the Internet give them the illusion of freedom. The old are lost in the controversies of their time: The Russians are communists, only hippies, left-wingers, and communists distrust the great and good US government. In short, the vast bulk of the American people haven’t a clue. When readers ask me to tell them the solution, what to do, my answer is that nothing can be done until enough people are informed. Informing is my job. Support my efforts and those of a few others whose only agenda is to inform.
In America, and throughout the Western world, it is harder and harder to speak the truth. Indeed, truth is such a devalued virtue that to speak it almost qualifies one as a criminal. If you want truth spoken, you must support it.

Now for the column:
I remember when America was a free country. You could get on an airliner without an ID. Driving licenses didn’t even have photos. If a friend was coming through your city on a flight and had a few hours layover, you could meet them inside the airport for lunch or dinner. You could meet friends, children, and relatives at the gate or see them off at the gate. Parents could actually put children on the plane and grandparents could take them off.
Your flight ticket was good at any airline. If something happened to your flight or you missed it, you could use the ticket on another airline going to the same place. On international flights you were permitted two free stopovers prior to your destination. If you were going to Athens, Greece, for example, you could first visit Paris and then Rome. It worked both ways, over and back. So one air ticket, six cities.

I can remember when you could enter a Manhattan office building without having to show an ID, be looked up on a list, and cleared in, and when you could check in a hotel without an ID and paid your bill when you checked out, with cash if you preferred. The only evidence of your name was the one you gave when you checked in.

Cars didn’t beep at you and neither did appliances nor construction machinery. The world was a quieter, less noise-disturbed place.
Common sense was more prevalent. Today it is hard to find any common sense. The British parliament is debating a law that would criminalize upskirt photographs. The “invasion of privacy” would have a price tag of two years imprisonment. Yet government can invade our privacy at will with street cameras, traffic cameras, read our emails, listen to our telephone calls, monitor our credit card purchases. Serious kinds of privacy invasion run amuck, but parents cannot find out if an underaged daughter is pregnant or has VD.
As kids we ran free. Heaven help a parent that permitted that today.

Oh, but times are more dangerous today we are told. What made today more dangerous? Failures in public policy. The government has made life more dangerous and less free.

Give the punishment of upskirt photos a moment’s thought. Laws end up being applied to the limit of their logic. Initially, enforcement might require a complaint from the person whose privacy is violated. But it wouldn’t be long before the act itself was the crime, complaint or not.

The photographer of the famous 1954 upskirt photo of Marilyn Monroe would be in danger and perhaps Marilyn herself as an accomplice. And what about all the people who looked at the photo. Aren’t they also privacy invaders?

There is now a giant statue depicting the upskirt photo. What would be its legal implications?

Women show much more of themselves intentionally in string bikinis and thongs or in short shorts and halters than is revealed by upskirt photos. Under the English law, would a photo of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders in action be considered a criminal offense?
Would TV shows such as this one be considered a violation?

Let’s move on to more serious examples of the crackpot laws of our time. In yet another assertion of the universal applicability of US laws, a collection of congressional nitwits has proposed a law that would punish those who make, distribute or use banned substances at international sports events with a $250,000 fine and 10 years imprisonment. The US law would apply to athletes of other countries at events held in other countries.

Washington in its hubris has long asserted its right to legislate for other countries, and the idiot governments of the world have subjected themselves to Washington’s legal authority. Not long ago a French bank was fined billions of dollars by Washington for financing companies doing business with Iran. A French shipbuilder was forced by Washington to cancel at its expense a contract with Russia, proving that France is not a sovereign country. Washington decrees sanctions on Russia, and any country that does not comply with Washington’s edict is punished. As far as Washington is concerned, Washington rules the world and the sovereignty of other nations does not exist.

I can tell you exactly how this law will be used. Washington will use one of its paid foreign NGO operatives in Russia, a traitor stupidly tolerated by the Russian government, or elsewhere to allege doping among Russian athletes, just as Washington is suspected of having paid Grigory Rodchenkov, the Russian lab director, with asylum, allowing him to escape justice in Russia, for inventing the story of Russian state organized mass use of banned 

The orchestrated scandal was used to prevent Russian participation in the Olympics. It was part of Washington’s campaign to demonize Russia and blacken its reputation in order to prevent normalization of relations that would threaten the trillion dollar US military/security budget that comes out of US taxpayers’ pockets and which threatens also the power that goes with the money. We can’t afford Social Security and Medicare, but we can afford the needless military/security complex’s annual budget of one trillion dollars.

If the bill becomes law, it would be extremely dangerous for Russian athletes to participate in sports events in the US or in countries that have treaties with Washington, as accusation alone would result in their arrest and seizure. Under the proposed law, the accused athletes have to prove their innocence, which Washington would make impossible. The Russian government would either have to invoke some law with which to arrest Americans to trade for the athletes, go to war, or accept the humiliation of being unable to rescue Russia’s finest athletes from US prisons. Don’t expect the congressional nitwits behind this bill to consider any of its dire consequences. They lack the intelligence. They are totally absorbed in American exceptionalism. As far as the congressional nitwits are concerned, America is the salt of the earth, after Israel, of course.

In the US laws now destroy law and the liberty that once was protected by law. It happened over time as various causes—the war on crime, the war on drugs, the war on child abuse, the war on tax evasion, the war on terrorism—over-rode the protective features of law in order to more easily arrest and convict the targeted. Each do-good agenda reduced liberty in the interest of easy and abundant convictions. All neglected Sir Thomas More’s questions in

A Man For All Seasons: What happens when we have cut down the law in order to better chase after the Devil, and the Devil turns on us? Where is our protection when the law is cut down?

This is the problem of Americans today. Justice is no longer a goal of the justice system. Conviction and clearing court dockets are the goals that unite prosecutors and judges. Ninety-seven percent of felonies are settled with plea bargains, which means that the evidence against the defendant is never tested in court. The defendant is convicted by self-incrimination.

Whether innocent or guilty, defendants and their attorneys are afraid of a trial for many reasons. Trials take up far more time than plea bargains and thereby make prosecutors and judges angry because they reduce the number of convictions that the prosecutor can cite as evidence of his effectiveness (dozens of plea bargains can be processed during the duration of one trial) and crowd the judge’s docket by forcing him to study the case. Consequently, the punishment from conviction at trial is much harsher than the sentence from a plea bargain.

Even an innocent person is afraid of the risk of a trial. Prosecutors are permitted to pay witnesses with money, light sentences, and dropped charges for testimony against a suspect they desire to convict. The testimony can be false, but nothing can be done about it unless the prosecutor indicts his or her own witness. No intelligent or skeptical persons are allowed on a jury. Jurors are of the belief that where there is smoke there is fire and that the defendant would not be on trial if he were not guilty. Grand juries are even more easily manipulated and deceived. They are putty in the hands of prosecutors.

Thanks to the War on Drugs, innocent Americans are faced with asset forfeiture. There is a notorious section of an Interstate highway in Tennesses where various local police jurisdictions fight over who gets to stop out-of-state cars and rob them of their cash if it exceeds $100 on the grounds that the sum indicates the intent to either buy or sell drugs. In The Tyranny of Good Intentions, Lawrence Stratton and I provide many examples of innocent Americans losing their money, their properties, and even their lives to the asset forfiture rules of the War on Drugs. 

For example, Selena Washington, a black woman who understood that she could not purchase thousands of dollars of construction materials with which to repair her hurricane damaged home with a check, drove along I-95 in Florida with $19,000 in cash from the insurance settlement to pay for the materials that would be used to restore her home. She was stopped, searched without a warrant and her $19,000 was stolen by the police. After much stress, eventually she was able to recover $15,000 of the theft by agreeing that the police could keep $4,000.

Willie Jones, a black nurseryman, who understood that he had to pay cash to restock his nursery, made the mistake of using cash, a legitimate means of payment, to purchase an airline ticket. The brainwashed airline ticket agent notified police as a cash ticket purchase fits the profile of a drug dealer. Jones’ cash was confiscated, and his nursery was not restocked.

Multimillionaire Donald Scott lost his life, because of a police plot to confiscate his 200 acre Malibu, California, estate for the US Park Service. The corrupt police claimed to have witnessed from overflying the estate marijuana plants on his land. An army of 30 armed agents invaded his home at night and shot him dead when he came from his bedroom to see what was happening. There were no marijuana plants on his estate. What in the world would a multimillionaire heir to a known fortune need to raise marijuana to sell for money? Yet the police got off with the murder.
Asset forfeiture was extended beyond the drug trade. People have lost their motels because a customer had a prostitute in the rented room.

Thanks to the War on Terrorism, the attorney-client privilege is dead as witnessed by the false imprisonment of Lynn Stewart. Thanks to the War on Terrorism, due process is dead along with habeas corpus. American citizens can now be arrested and held in prison indefinitely for the rest of their lives without a trial or any evidence ever being presented to a court. This was a creation of the criminal George W. Bush regime. Americans can now be executed without due process of law, which means without evidence brought against them in a court and conviction on the evidence. This was a creation of the criminal Obama regime. George W. Bush and Obama presided over the two worst criminal governments in human history.

In America today, law is declared as edicts from the executive, justified by illogical and nonsensical legal memos, such as those written by John Yoo, from the corrupt Department of Justice (sic). For his service to the police state, John Choon Yoo from Korea was made the Emanuel S.Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. Go to Berkeley’s law school to learn the non-existence of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Learn how whatever the executive wants to do is the law.

In other words, just as there is no respect for the law in prosecutorial offices and courts, there is none in law schools and bar associations.
America is without a defender of law, except for organizations such as the Rutherford Institute and, occasionally, the American Civil Liberties Union. As often as not the ACLU is off-track worrying about “transgender rights” while the Bill of Rights is eviscerated.

Justice, the rule of law, these are in the way of the elites and have been discarded. The American people are so poorly educated and informed that they do not understand the consequences of the demise of the laws that once upheld the US Constitution.

The corrupt, degenerate, inhumane world that is the Western world is the world that the insane Russian liberals cannot wait to join. The idiot Russian liberals deserve no better, but, of course, it means that the entire world is going down the tubes, not only the Western world.

Before succumbing to despair, be informed that my articles are translated and published internationally in many languages. I have been informed by one large Russian newspaper, which regularly translates and publishes my columns that it knows not how many read the print version but the online version of my column, “Is Europe Too Brainwashed To Normalize Relations With Russia?,” was read by 300,956 online readers.

This is the readership of just one newspaper in Russia. My world wide audience is many times larger than the New York Times and my credibility, despite the continuous attacks, is far greater than the Western TV media.

In the days when the US was a free country, major foundations would have been supporting this website. Today they are part of the corrupt establishment and only serve the propaganda. Therefore, the continuance of this website is up to you alone.

As a major dissenter from the lies and propaganda that emanate from the Western capitals, I am a target, someone to be eliminated. Unless I shut up, it will eventually happen. This is a large risk for me to assume for people who do not care sufficiently about truth to support this website.

The news agenda in the U.S. is controlled by the mediawhores. That's a good reason to never view anything coming from them. Remember the hysteria over assault weapons? How about non-stop articles on Trump being a racist? Then there were articles on “Russian collusion”. This week we get to hear children crying in news reports about illegal border crossers being separated from their children. All of these are promoted by a leftist agenda through the mediawhores. Who knows what it will be next week?

So, Rachael Maddow could not finish her news report as she was crying over the children being detained by U.S. border security. (By the way--- this policy has been in existence since the Bush jr. administration.) As is the case with everything the leftists say or do, it has a political agenda. If Rachael loves children so much, where were her tears when Israeli soldiers gunned down unarmed civilians in Gaza 2 weeks ago? Where are her tears for the 20 million Yemenese civilians being starved to death by Saudi Arabia using French, British and American weapons? Where are the tears for the thousands of children killed and orphaned by U.S. bombings in Syria? Where are the tears for the thousands of children born with birth defects in Iraq directly attributed to the use of depleted uranium in the never ending war there. No, those babies are not as important as the babies that serve her leftist agenda.

I would love to see a real opposition to the policies of Donald Trump. Not to be --- Instead we are being conscripted into accepting the weirdo leftists as the only credible opposition to Trump. No wonder he won. The faces of the leftists are headed by Kathy Griffin, Nancy Pelosi, Meryl Streep, Samantha Bee, Megyn Kelly, Robert Deniro, Peter Fonda and Whoopi Goldberg. Here's what they all have in common: They cannot get through a sentence without crude obscenities and they are very rich and haven't a clue as to what it's like to actually work for an average wage.

The “Angel Moms” of two American sons killed by illegal aliens told The Daily Caller how they felt about the media coverage of migrant parents separated from their children at the border.

The mothers told TheDC that there was huge hypocrisy in the mainstream media focusing on migrant parents instead of American parents who were permanently separated from their children after those children were killed by illegal aliens.

“There is hypocrisy in many ways. The total disregard for American families ripped apart because of illegal criminals, the total lack of concern for children in the U.S. being raped in North Carolina by illegals at disgusting numbers (some months over 400 child rapes by illegals), no concern [for] homeless American children or Veterans who would do anything to have what’s provided [to] these children. Yet, our politicians call it inhumane treatment. Would they rather these kids coming across our borders stay with the adults who aren’ttheir biological parents but have kidnapped them to get across the border as a ‘family unit?'” Mary Ann Mendoza told TheDC.

Mendoza’s story is absolutely heartbreaking.
Her son, Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, was killed by an illegal alien who was drunk driving and hit him head-on.

On her website, the Sgt. Brandon Mendoza Memorial Foundation, she writes:
“My name is Mary Ann Mendoza and my life course has been changed forever.
My son, Sgt Brandon Mendoza, was killed on May 12, 2014 in a violent head on collision. He was killed by a 3 times the legal limit drunk and high on meth ILLEGAL CRIMINAL!  He had driven 35 MILES the wrong way on four different freeways before slamming head-on into my son’s car.  My son had just finished his shift and was heading home after working to keep Mesa citizens safe and his community crime free when his life was taken so tragically.”

“It’s all about sensational headlines,” she also told this reporter. “They have no real concern for these kids. It’s just another way to make this administration look bad.”

My son, Police Sgt Brandon Mendoza who was killed by a Repeat ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL. When will your family be affected? You need to wake up happened in the blink of an eye to me

“Worse things happened to these kids was Obama was president and [the media] was crickets. In closing, the fact that my son was collateral damage and totally disregarded to support their agenda is hypocrisy at its best. My dead son, a fellow American, is nothing to them! This isn’t worth their time because it would disprove their theory that we need illegal aliens here and we don’t need a border wall,” she added.
Another Angel Mom, Sabine Durden, lost her son Dominic to a motorcycle accident when he was struck by an illegal alien.
The criminal alien who killed Dominic Durden was also reportedly “barely under the legal limit” while driving that day.

Sabine Durden told TheDC, “The hypocrisy is astonishing. The MSM has ignored many of us victims of illegal alien crime for so long. They avoid us like pests. If it weren’t for President Trump, no one would even know much about us. He gave my son a voice that was taken by an illegal. And I’m forever thankful to him for that and for bringing the issue of illegal alien invasion to the forefront. It’s deeply hurtful to see how MSM now ‘cares’ so much for children separated from their parents while continuing to ignore thousands of us separated by death, forever.”
Durden spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, as did Mendoza.

“Not one of the Dems has reached out since they heard about my son’s death. Not one spoke publicly about American victims of illegals. Their fake grandstanding for children is for show and absent of compassion because they didn’t do any of this during Obama’s presidency. We have 1.6 million homeless children, inner cities destroyed and American children in need, homeless veterans and mentally ill people all on their own. No word about them from the left,” she continued.

“Yet they stumble over each other to get to a detention center with their camera crews behind them. They yell and show outrage over illegal aliens who placed themselves in this position. They call them immigrants, which is insulting to true immigrants like me,” she also told TheDC.

“They don’t go to jails and prisons where Americans who committed a crime are separated from their children. They didn’t go run and shown outrage when Obama had illegal alien kids in cages. The Dems are losing their voting base and need illegals to fill those spots. They are willing to step over dead Americans to get their amnesty. They continue to put out the welcome mat for more illegals to come by creating Sanctuary cities and states,” she added.

Durden also added that she has faced backlash for standing against illegal immigration.
“I get called racist, Nazi and my late son was referred to as ‘roadkill’ by an ‘anti-Trumper.’ All this is flamed by the leaders on the left. They are ignoring their own citizens who will never see or touch their child ever again to protect and speak for illegals who broke our laws.”
“What a rude awakening to now have to spend the rest of my life without my only child — my best friend, my heartbeat — because illegal aliens are more important and better protected and get special treatment by the law.”

This is the headline of the subject article. It also says that the U.S. spends much more on healthcare than any other nation. Since almost all healthcare in the U.S. follows recommendations from the AMA and government agencies, we have to assume that the basic recommendations are wrong.
In my personal life, I have endeavored to follow a natural path in diet and health. Much of this directly contradicts guidelines of modern medicine in the U.S. Oddly enough, much of medical research uses human studies to validate their findings on diet and medication. If human studies are the ultimate in validating or rejecting medical treatment, we can assume that the subject article proves the U.S. medical community is wrong and we, as a nation are suffering enormous consequences.

Here are a few positions of the medical community that are set in stone, but shouldn't be. 1) Vaccines prevent disease and have very few side effects. 2) Medications produced in laboratories save lives and promote health. 3) Vitamins are a waste of money in most cases. 4) GMO produce has no health consequences. 5) Glyphosate is not harmful. 5) Nutrasweet helps you to lose weight and is not harmful. Of course there are more, but you get it.

I haven't been to a doctor in 20 years. I consider myself healthy and without joint pain, arthritis, allergies or any influenza for 15 years. I can still run and play basketball. O.K. this isn't to brag. It's to say that since the healthcare in America is a dismal and tragic failure, I do the opposite of their recommendations. I'm not going to reveal my age, but I do collect Social Security. If their plan isn't working for you, it's time for another plan.

Of the eleven developed nations evaluated by the Commonwealth Fund, the United States comes in dead last on healthcare.
Every three years, the Commonwealth Fund releases a report ranking the healthcare systems of 11 of the world’s developed nation. And every three years, it seems, the United States comes in dead last.

Last released in 2017, the report showed for the sixth time that the U.S. healthcare system is in dire need of a makeover, citing the inequity of access as the most glaring problem.
Via Newsweek:
The Commonwealth Fund focused on care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, studying 72 indicators within those fields. The 11 countries analyzed were Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The report found that 44 percent of low-income Americans have trouble gaining access to coverage compared with 26 percent of high-income Americans.
The one area where the U.S. does shine?

In addition to ranking last or close to last in access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, the U.S. was found to spend the most money on health care.

The glaring difference between the United States and its peer countries is the lack of universal healthcare coverage -- a system continuously rejected by America’s political establishment.

“To gain more than incremental improvement,..the U.S. may need to pursue different approaches to organizing and financing the delivery system,” the report reads. “These could include strengthening primary care, supporting organizations that excel at care coordination and moving away from fee-for-service payment to other types of purchasing that create incentives to better coordinate care. These steps should ensure early diagnosis and treatment, improve the affordability of care, and ultimately improve the health of all Americans.”

Though the next report is not due out until 2020, there is little reason to believe its findings will be much different.
After taking control of the federal government, Republicans have worked diligently -- if not quite successfully -- to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and whittle away at the number of Americans qualifying for Medicaid, largely through state-mandated work requirements.

And as reported earlier this month, President Donald Trump also recently signed an executive order that has the potential to impact the availability of healthcare coverage for low-income Americans.

Trump signed the Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility executive order privately Tuesday, ordering secretaries across the government to review their welfare programs — from food stamps to Medicaid to housing programs — and propose new regulations, like work requirements.

The executive order calls on federal agencies to enforce current work requirements, propose additional, stronger requirements, and find savings (in other words, make cuts), and to give states more flexibility to run welfare programs

It's more of the same. One day, it will not be more of the same. One day, this madness will envelop the whole world. Yesterday, our spoiled brat, Israel, attacked Syria again. People were killed. This is one top of their bombing of the totally disarmed, open concentration camp of Gaza. By the way, the Israeli government said terrorists in Gaza were going to fill balloons with helium, load them with bombs and float them over Israel. Of course it was just 2 weeks ago when Israeli soldiers shot and killed unarmed men, women and children at the Gaza border.

Then we have Saudi Arabia. Flush with decades of American oil money and flush with space age weapons provided by the United States, the Saudis have been slaughtering 10's of thousands of civilians in Yemen. On top of that the Saudi blockade has caused a holocaust that has the potential to kill millions. Both of the Israeli actions and Saudi actions are war crimes.

No matter. Our nation once stood for freedom and the defense of those who could not defend themselves. Our media is full of dramas depicting atrocities committed by the Nazis, the Japanese and the Soviets during the Stalin era. That was then. Today, hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed and wounded directly caused by the U.S. and U.S. armed nations. On top of that millions have been displaced from their homes by these actions. Imagine the rage in the hearts of those directly affected by this. At the risk of seeming anti-American, I have to say we are no longer the good guys.

Wars and violence breeds more war and violence. If we really believe in the ideals upon which our nation was founded, we have to bring these policies to an end and bring our troops home. I do not believe that the vast majority of Americans approve of this, but we have been conquered by a tiny minority. As I wrote before, these people have to go.

Washington (CNN)An airstrike close to the Iraq-Syria border Sunday was carried out by Israel, and not by the US or the coalition fighting ISIS, a US official tells CNN.

Syrian state TV blamed the strike that targeted pro-regime forces and caused multiple casualties on the US-led coalition combating the terrorist group, but a spokesman for the coalition said there were no coalition strikes in the area near Abu Kamal.
The Israel Defense Forces declined to comment on the strike, per its normal policy.

US officials have said that many pro-regime militias that are also aligned with Iran operate in the border area between Syria and Iraq.The area is some distance from Israel and Israeli jets would have had to overcome significant logistical hurdles to strike that area.
Israel has repeatedly warned that it would target Iranian-linked groups in Syria.

"We will take action - and are already taking action - against efforts to establish a militarily presence by Iran and its proxies in Syria both close to the border and deep inside Syria. We will act against these efforts anywhere in Syria," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday at a cabinet meeting.

Netanyahu spoke with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Russian President Vladimir Putin over the weekend, two of the key players in influencing Israel's policy and actions over Syria.

Sunday's strike was very different from those normally attributed to Israel. Generally, strikes by Israel occur in the western region of Syria, principally in the area around Damascus and Homs. Recently, these strikes have targeted Iran's infrastructure and military presence in Syria, which Israel has staunchly opposed. Israel also has struck shipments of advanced weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon in the past.

This attack in Eastern Syria is hundreds of miles away from that area, and the target -- pro-regime forces -- differs from what would be Israel's usual mark, namely Iranian military positions.

The subject article covers the supposed “outrage” in Perth, Australia, concerning a billboard in that city. The billboard asks “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?”. Well, do you? The subject article uses the following headline to cover this subject: “Nasty & devious’ anti-vaccination billboard sparks outrage in Australia”. O.K., let's analyze the billboard and the article. First, the credit for the article is given to an individual named, Andrew Cheetham. I was hoping to see a biography on Mr. Cheetham that would qualify him to comment in detail on the claims in the billboard. I still do not know who he is and why he is given this forum. Anyway, let's ask if there is any documentation that would validate using the terms “nasty” “devious” as well as saying there is “outrage” in Australia. I read the whole article and did not see anything that would provide any evidence to go along with the adjectives used to describe this billboard. Just more juvenile name calling totally lacking in any facts.

Now on to the board--- It asks “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?” That's it. It asks a question. It does not provide the answer. That is up to you. You can research for yourself or not. No, we can't have that. Anyone who asks a question that could embarrass us obviously has to be censored. If the pharmaceutical cabal is so confident in the efficacy and safety of every one of their vaccines, they should welcome an educated public. On the other hand, if they are fearful that the public will find out that many of the vaccines contain Thimerisol, aluminum, anti-freeze, squalene, monkey cells, aborted fetus cells and other dangerous ingredients, I can see why they do not want the average person to know this.

No, pull the billboard down. While we're at it, let's have a good old fashioned book burning. The public is getting way too uppity.

A new anti-vaccination billboard in Perth has sparked outrage amongst Australian doctors and caused a dispute to flare on social media. The ad poses the controversial question “Do you know what’s in a vaccine?”

The billboard was met with fierce criticism from Australian doctors and the authorities, which vowed to pull it down, as social media users argued about whether this could violate freedom of speech. Placed on a street corner, the billboard provided a link to an American anti-vaccination group called ‘Learn The Risk.’ It defines its mission as one of raising people’s awareness of “the dangers of pharmaceutical products, including vaccines.”

However, the message wasn’t received so well by the Australian Medical Association. As soon as the billboard was spotted, the Association insisted on having it pulled down by the local authorities. Their outrage was reinforced by Health Minister Roger Cook, who in turn branded the billboard “nasty and devious” and warned that its “misleading” nature could seriously endanger people’s lives. Cook vowed to pull all the necessary strings to have it removed as soon as possible and said he was considering toughening laws to fight against this sort of “misinformation.”

Some on social media staunchly defended the government’s position, blaming the billboard for promoting falsehoods and feeding the conspiracy theory that vaccinations posed massive dangers to children’s health. They also suggested that the billboard was offensive to anyone with a medical background.

A good comparison: a billboard which said smokes make your breath smell sweet, help you get better school marks. Sadly not everyone sees this stuff as #rubbish propaganda, conspiracy theory #Vaccination saves lives @AMA_WA @RogerCookMLA @cathyo62 #auspol
The anti-vax billboard that's popped up in Perth.. it's causing a stir amongst people with actual medical degrees.

Others on social media suggested that the real danger could be coming from the Australian Medical Association which, they claim, attempts to censure alternative opinions.

Misinformation is one thing, but a bully trying to suppress freedom of speech is worse in my books. The AMA is a bully and should back off 
Suggestions made by people who thought that the question raised on the billboard wasn’t so irrational after all, were instantly rebuked by those lobbying for vaccination. According to them removing the billboard had nothing to do with the freedom of speech, it was that the ad could lure people into thinking their decision to avoid vaccination would not influence others.

People screaming about their about the rights of those that would like to minimise disease / infection(s) in society so that our children to enjoy a life free from the likes of rubella, mumps, measles, diphtheria, pertussis, pneumococcal just to name a few?
This isn’t about free speech. The facts are available. There are actual experts that people can consult instead of a biased google page with not real legitimate accreditation. This is about public safety. Needs to come down. Let’s not spread debunked conspiracies

Last year, the Australian government pushed to introduce a sweeping ban on unvaccinated children from attending childcare facilities. The move was backed by the medical community. In 2015, Australian authorities stripped parents of welfare entitlements and tax benefits if they failed to get their kids vaccinated.

How many times do we sit by and let our government masters exonerate themselves? I guess until the people no longer stand for it. So, the mediawhores and our government masters have been releasing reports that the Inspector General report will get to the root of corruption in the Justice Department and the FBI. Well, to those who believed that, I have the bridge ready for you to buy.

There is something that this latest investigation does  reveal. It is that this government corruption is beyond repair and beyond hope. They will never indict someone that is in their club. For that matter they will never stop their wars. They will never get wasteful spending under control.

Thomas Jefferson predicted that the government our Constitution authorized would have to be replaced periodically. No, not by elections, the government would from time to time, have to be entirely replaced. You see, he knew that people are naturally corrupt. The more power going to corrupt people, the worse the government becomes. We are there. Just like in the fall of the Soviet Union, it is time for people to peacefully express their exasperation with this over-bloated, corrupt federal government. In the Soviet Union, more than 1 million people took to the streets of Moscow and demanded the government disband. After several tense days, they did exactly that. They are much better off and we would be too if we followed their example. The alternative is a total collapse or world war.

If you believe our government masters you will believe that unemployment is around 3.8% and the inflation rate is around 3%. Yes, and the tooth fairy will leave you money under your pillow if you lose a tooth.

Here's a couple of questions: If, by the government's own statistics, there are over 100 million working age people without full time jobs, how does that add up to 3.8% unemployment? If in calculating the official inflation rate, food and energy are eliminated from the equation, how does that represent a fair calculation of the rate of inflation? ----only in America--- In the subject article, Economist John Williams of has been tracking what our key economic numbers would look like if honest numbers were being used. Guess what? He says the real unemployment rate is 21.5%. The inflation rate would be closer to 10%, but why would we expect anything different from a government comprised of pathological liars.

Meanwhile, we continue to slide towards a full economic collapse. We continue to devote nearly 1 trillion dollars each year to wars all around the world. We continue to maintain over 1 trillion dollars in student loan debt. We continue to spend 1 trillion dollars more each year than we bring in. We continue to ignore unfunded liabilities for the federal government that could total close to 200 trillion dollars. No, nothing to see here. Everything is fine. Everything will always be fine. Never mind everything else.

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,
Every time the mainstream media touts some “wonderful new economic numbers” I just want to cringe.  Yes, it is true that the economic numbers have gotten slightly better since Donald Trump entered the White House, but the rosy economic picture that the mainstream media is constantly painting for all of us is completely absurd. 

As you are about to see, if honest numbers were being used all of our major economic numbers would be absolutely terrible.  Of course we can hope for a major economic turnaround for America under Donald Trump, but we certainly are not there yet.  Economist John Williams of has been tracking what our key economic numbers would look like if honest numbers were being used for many years, and he has gained a sterling reputation for being accurate.  And according to him, it looks like the U.S. economy has been in a recession and/or depression for a very long time.

Let’s start by talking about unemployment. 
We are being told that the unemployment rate in the United States is currently “3.8 percent”, which would be the lowest that it has been “in nearly 50 years”.

To support this claim, the mainstream media endlessly runs articles declaring how wonderful everything is.  For example, the following is from a recent New York Times article entitled “We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are”…
The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for “good” in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately.

So, for example, “splendid” and “excellent” fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low.
Doesn’t that sound great?
It would be great, if the numbers that they were using were honest.

The truth, of course, is that the percentage of the population that is employed has barely budged since the depths of the last recession.  According to John Williams, if honest numbers were being used the unemployment rate would actually be 21.5 percent today.

So what is the reason for the gaping disparity?
As I have explained repeatedly, the government has simply been moving people from the “officially unemployed” category to the “not in the labor force” category for many, many years.

If we use the government’s own numbers, there are nearly 102 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.  That is higher than it was at any point during the last recession.

We are being conned.  I have a friend down in south Idaho that is a highly trained software engineer that has been out of work for two years.
If the unemployment rate is really “3.8 percent”, why can’t he find a decent job?

By the way, if you live in the Boise area and you know of an opening for a quality software engineer, please let me know and I will get the information to him.

Next, let’s talk about inflation.
According to Williams, the way inflation has been calculated in this country has been repeatedly changed over the decades…
Williams argues that U.S. statistical agencies overestimate GDP data by underestimating the inflation deflator they use in the calculation.
Manipulating the inflation rate, Williams argues in Public Comment on Inflation Measurement , also enables the US government to pay out pensioners less than they were promised, by fudging cost of living adjustments.

This manipulation has ironically taken place quite openly over decades, as successive Republican and Democratic administrations made “improvements” in the way they calculated the data.

If inflation was still calculated the way that it was in 1990, the inflation rate would be 6 percent today instead of about 3 percent.
And if inflation was still calculated the way that it was in 1980, the inflation rate would be about 10 percent today.

Doesn’t that “feel” more accurate to you?  We have all seen how prices for housing, food and health care have soared in recent years.  After examining what has happened in your own life, do you believe that the official inflation rates of “2 percent” and “3 percent” that we have been given in recent years are anywhere near accurate?

Because inflation is massively understated, that has a tremendous effect on our GDP numbers as well.
If accurate inflation numbers were being used, we would still be in a recession right now.
In fact, John Williams insists that we would still be in a recession that started back in 2004.
And without a doubt, a whole host of other more independent indicators point in that direction too.  The following comes from an excellent piece by Peter Diekmeyer…

Williams’ findings, while controversial, corroborate a variety of other data points. Median wage gains have been stagnant for decades. The U.S. labour force participation rate remains at multi-decade lows. Even our own light-hearted Big Mac deflator suggests that the U.S. economy is in a depression.
Another clue is to evaluate the U.S. economy just as economists would a third world nation whose data they don’t trust. They do this by resorting to figures that are hard to fudge.

There, too, by a variety of measures—ranging from petroleum consumption to consumer goods production to the Cass Freight Index—the U.S. economy appears to have not grown much, if at all, since the turn of the millennium.

In the end, all that any of us really need to do is to just open our eyes and look at what is happening all around us.  We are on pace for the worst year for retail store closings in American history, and this “retail apocalypse” is hitting rural areas harder than anywhere else…
This city’s Target store is gone.

So is Kmart, MC Sports, JCPenney, Vanity and soon Herberger’s, a department store.
“The mall is pretty sad,” says Amanda Cain, a teacher and mother. “Once Herberger’s closes, we’ll have no anchors.”
About two-thirds of Ottumwa’s Quincy Place Mall will be empty with Herberger’s loss.
Of course it isn’t just the U.S. economy that is troubled either.

We are living in the terminal phase of the greatest debt bubble in global history, many nations around the globe are already experiencing a very deep economic downturn, and our planet is literally in the process of dying.

So please don’t believe the hype.
Yes, we definitely hope that things will get better, but the truth is that things have not been “good” for the U.S. economy for a very, very long time.

That's the bad news. The good news is every time the leftist, gay, transgender group moves into our lives, they move closer to destroying those who sympathize with their views.

The subject article and Facebook comments cover a new cartoon being developed by the weirdos that control Netflix. The theme of the cartoon is drag queen superheroes ‘save the world’ from ‘evil’. Well, who is going to save us from them? Remember when this tiny minority cried for tolerance? Now that there is tolerance, they have become completely intolerant. If you haven't already canceled Netflix, you may want to do so now. By the way, Netflix is losing a ton of money. One bad decision after another has turned the pioneer of “cord cutting” programming into a financial fiasco. Good riddance! Maybe others will fill the gap with programming that leaves the leftist agenda behind.

Perhaps we should be glad they are doing this. Every time these leftists get their way with a major corporation, that company's bottom line immediately begins to tank. Remember Target and their transgender bathrooms? How about Starbucks and their hiring program for illegal immigrants? Then there was Macy's and their attack on Ivanka Trump, just because she's the daughter of the President. So as long as these out of touch companies continue to self destruct, we should cheer them on.

The Canadian province of Ontario had long been a refuge for every crackpot, weirdo and leftist philosophy. Just 5 years ago, the voters elected an openly gay, female as their Premier. After that they got a lesson in what happens when a government is turned over to this type of agenda.

One of the problems with the militant gay coalition is once they get past the manor in which they have sex, there isn't much else. Now former, Premier, Kathleen Wynne, attempted to promote some of the leftist agenda. One of the most controversial was enacting charges for carbon emissions for the non-existent Global warming. This resulted in increases in fuel prices along with other price increases in related industries. All of the support for transgenderism, removing the so-called offensive gender specific words from the language, an open door policy for non-vetted immigrants and so on, have finally turned the stomach of those who actually work for a living rather than live off of the government.

So they pushed too far. This tiny minority continues to push too far all over the western world. They are their own worst enemy. Kathleen Wynne, and her ilk have succeeded in turning friends into enemies. Doug Ford never would have had any chance to be elected if it wasn't for Kathleen Wynne, and her agenda. Bye, bye Kathleen . Let's hope this is a trend.

On Thursday night, Ontario’s PCs ended 15 years of Liberal power in the province, riding a wave of popular resentment against Kathleen Wynne. But what did they promise, and how do they intend to pay for it?

June 7, 2018: PC Leader Doug Ford reacts with his family after winning the Ontario provincial election.
Doug Ford named his transition team and chief of staff Friday after his Progressive Conservatives won a comfortable majority in Ontario's election – and the province’s businesses are watching closely to find out what that will mean.

The governing Liberals were decimated, losing official party status and dropping to seven seats, mostly in Toronto and Ottawa. Leader Kathleen Wynne, who conceded days earlier, announced her resignation Thursday after five years in the premier's office and 15 years of Liberal power in Ontario.
The NDP's Andrea Horwath, now the Official Opposition leader, called the election a historic moment as organizers celebrated a doubling of the party’s seat count. "Today millions of people voted for change for the better," Ms. Horwath said.

Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner won a former Liberal riding in Guelph, making him the provincial party's first-ever MPP. 
Ms. Wynne's defeat has cost Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a key Liberal ally in Ontario ahead of a federal election next year. Mr. Trudeau congratulated Mr. Ford on Thursday night, and thanked Ms. Wynne for her years of service.

The Progressive Conservatives haven’t had a majority government since 2003, when premier Ernie Eves – the heir to Mike Harris’s Common Sense Revolution in the 1990s – lost to Kathleen Wynne’s predecessor, Liberal Dalton McGuinty. Doug Ford’s majority isn’t quite as big as those of PC leaders past, but it is decisive: 76 seats, up from 28 in the last election and 27 at dissolution.

What made the Tory victory possible was a total collapse of the Liberals, whose leader faced record low approval ratings before the election. Liberal seats in the Toronto area were all but wiped out, with Mississauga and the 905 region going to the PCs. In all, the Liberals kept only seven seats, mostly in Toronto and Ottawa. Andrea Horwath’s New Democratic Party made gains in Southwestern Ontario’s urban ridings, but while they increased by 22 seats, it wasn’t enough to stop the PCs from reaching majority.

The election also saw a higher voter turnout: About 58 per cent, compared with 51.3 per cent in 2014.

On Thursday, I wrote about conspiracies involving our government masters. No where is this more evident than the attack on anything negative said or written about the government of Israel. June 8, was the 51st anniversary of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty. Ever hear of it? Probably not. Yes, there are some articles covering this horrendous attack, but many of those are highly sanitized.

So I have posted a video covering all aspects of this attack reported by those who survived. It also covers the subsequent cover up. No, no conspiracy here. At some point, even the most ardent government apologist has got to get fed up --- fed up with the lies, fed up with the corruption, fed up with the treatment of average citizens like the surfs of the middle ages.

         'The Americans have findings that show our pilots were aware the ship was American,' a newly published document by the State Archives says
Ofer Aderet
Jul 11, 2017 5:51 PM

Turning a blind eye
Israeli communications said to prove IAF knew Liberty was U.S. ship
Amid the jubilee celebrations for the Six-Day War, the tragic story of the American spy ship USS Liberty – which was bombed by an Israeli fighter jet and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967 in the eastern Mediterranean – was somewhat overlooked. Thirty-four American sailors were killed in the Israeli attack and many others were wounded.

The technical research ship USS Liberty arrives at Valletta, Malta, having been attacked by Israeli aircraft and torpedo vessels in the Mediterranean, 8th 
Israel apologized and paid compensation to the victims’ families. Israeli and American commissions of inquiry found that the attack was a mistake. But naturally, as often happens in such events, to this day there are some who believe Israel attacked the ship with malicious intent.
A conspiracy? Healthy suspicion? Call it what you will. A new book published in May in the United States (its authors include several survivors of the attack) promises that “the truth is being told as never before and the real story revealed.” The 302 pages of “Remember the Liberty!: Almost Sunk by Treason on the High Seas” include quite a number of documents, testimonies, arguments and information that were gathered in the subsequent 50 years.

Historian and Kulanu MK Michael Oren: "Attempts to explain why Israel was interested in attacking the Liberty have failed thus far."Ofer Vaknin
The authors’ bottom line is that then-U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the attack, in an attempt to blame then-Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser – an excuse that would then enable the United States to join the Six-Day War.

The book includes, among other things, a CIA document from November 1967 that is still partially censored. In the document, which is also on the official CIA website, an anonymous source is quoted as saying: “They said that [then-Israeli Defense Minister Moshe] Dayan personally ordered the attack on the ship, and that one of his generals adamantly opposed the action and said, ‘This is pure murder.’” There is no dispute about the authenticity of the document, but clearly not every sentence written in an intelligence document is the unvarnished truth.

On the other hand, the new book quotes a story reported by former U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter, who recounted a conversation between an Israeli pilot and the Israel Air Force war room, which was allegedly picked up by an NSA aircraft and inadvertently cabled to CIA offices around the world:

[The CIA document. Still partly censored, 50 years on.]
The CIA document. Still partly censored, 50 years on.CIA

Israeli pilot to IDF war room: This is an American ship. Do you still want us to attack?
IDF war room to Israeli pilot: Yes, follow orders.
Israeli pilot to IDF war room: But sir, it’s an American ship - I can see the flag!
IDF war room to Israeli pilot: Never mind; hit it.

Both the CIA document and the quote have already been published in the past. The book revives them as part of its attempt to prove its thesis.
Historian (and current Kulanu lawmaker) Dr. Michael Oren, who researched the affair in depth, rejects out of hand attempts to claim Israel attacked the USS Liberty deliberately.

Haaretz asked Oren last week if he has any doubts about his assertion that Israel didn’t deliberately attack the spy ship.
“There is no doubt," he says. "Not even the smallest percentage. I’ve taken part in wars. I know what ‘friendly fire’ is. There’s a lot of chaos. It was a classic screw up.

A classic screw up, especially in wartime, has more than one reason. It’s a sequence, a chain of screw ups.”
Oren adds: “I’m a historian. I have to stick with the facts. I can’t get into conspiracies and theories. A historian must proceed on the basis of the data before him. Today, almost all the papers have been publicized, including the texts of the recordings of the U.S. spy plane and spy submarine.

“Attempts to explain why Israel was interested in attacking the Liberty have failed thus far," he continues. "They’re trying to answer the question ‘Why?’ and they’re having difficulty. It began with the claim that the Liberty discovered the Israel Defense Forces' intentions or preparations to occupy the Golan Heights. And then they said it had homed in on some preparations in Dimona [the site of Israel’s nuclear reactor]. And finally, that it had listened in on the slaughter of Egyptian prisoners of war – I don’t know how slaughter sounds on the communications network. All kinds of bizarre theories.

"If we start with the assumption that the attack was deliberate and planned in advance, the question is why. And nobody answers this question. The answer is that it wasn’t planned.

"What continues to fuel these conspiracy theories?" Oren asks. "The subject is revived every few years. It is part of a 'theory' that Israel, together with Russia and China, spies on the United States. As Israel’s ambassador to the United States I saw this undercurrent, which is also sometimes anti-Semitic.”

No smoking gun
In response to a recent request by historian Adam Raz (“The Battle Over the Bomb,” 2015, Hebrew), the Israel State Archives posted hundreds of documents on its website related to the USS Liberty affair.
Raz perused the material and pulled out several fascinating documents that are likely to add more questions to those already in existence – or, if you will, provide some convincing material for conspiracy theorists.

Raz, who wrote a fascinating article about Israel’s nuclear secrets in last week's Hebrew Haaretz supplement, doesn’t like the C-word: “conspiracy.” He stresses that, as a historian, he finds the word unacceptable. “Was the so-called ‘rotten business’ [a failed Israeli sabotage operation in Egypt in 1954] also a conspiracy? So what’s a conspiracy?” he wonders.

He believes the documents arouse enough questions to ensure historians won’t be filing the affair away in the archives. He’s fully aware of the fact that the “smoking gun” won’t be found in the papers in the State Archives, because if Israel really had intended to hit the ship, that would have been known only to a handful of people. But he refuses to accept the assertion that the claims Israel hit the ship deliberately are a conspiracy.

One of the documents Raz found among the hundreds of papers published by the State Archives is the Israeli Foreign Ministry correspondence that was sent from New York to Jerusalem.

“Menashe informed us we had better be very careful. He doesn’t have complete information but he knows that Issaschar is very angry about our letter. The reason is apparently that the Americans have findings that show our pilots were in fact aware the ship was American,” according to the document.
And later: “Menashe believes there is a recording on the ship of the conversations between the ship and our pilots, in which the ship’s crew said the ship is American. Menashe says that, in his opinion, our only chance of getting out of the crisis is to punish someone for negligence.”
In another document, which is also now posted online by the State Archives, the Israeli Embassy in Washington writes to the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem under the heading “Urgent.”

“We must change the abovementioned letter, because we certainly won’t be able to say there is no basis for the accusation that the identity of the ship was determined by Israeli planes prior to the attack,” it declares.
In other documents, which are fascinating in themselves, there is documentation of Israeli preparations for the U.S. investigation and the demands for compensation that were to follow.

“The issue has turned into a malignant wound, which involves serious dangers for all of our relationships on all levels here, whose friendship was ours until now and which are crucial to our status in the United States. In other words, the president, the Pentagon, public opinion and the intelligence community. Do you realize that the president is also the supreme commander of the U.S. armed forces?” wonders the Israeli Embassy in Washington, in a telegram to the Foreign Ministry.

“In the grave situation that has been created, the only way to soften the result is for us to be able to announce to the U.S. government already today that we intend to prosecute people for this disaster. We have to publicize that in Israel already tonight,” according to a Foreign Ministry letter. “This activity is the only way to create the impression, both to the U.S. government and the public here, that the attack on the ship was not the result of malicious intent by the Israeli government – I repeat, the Israeli government – or authorized groups in the IDF. For obvious reasons, it is crucial that our announcement about prosecuting those who are to blame be publicized before – I repeat, before – the publication of the American report here.”

The papers also contain several “amusing” anecdotes, such as the description of a U.S. Independence Day party that was held at the U.S. Embassy in Israel after the disaster.

“I was presented to the commander of the USS Liberty, which is here for repairs. He spoke freely about what happened and expressed his full confidence that it was a tragic mistake,” according to one of the Foreign Ministry documents. “When asked in my presence, how long the ship’s trip to the United States would take, he replied with a smile, ‘About two weeks – unless we encounter Israeli planes again.’”

Much ink has been spilled in the past 50 years about the Liberty. In 2015, Amir Oren wrote a fascinating Haaretz Hebrew article that tried to eliminate all the conspiracy theories. “Senior American officials bequeathed a large number of incriminating quotes, but the plain and consensual truth is that a series of mistakes and screw ups caused the IDF to land a lethal blow against a vessel belonging to Israel’s most important ally,” he wrote.

Tom Segev, in an equally interesting 2012 article, also came out against the various theories. “None of the four people who could have ordered an attack on an American ship - Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, Mossad chief Meir Amit, Defense Minister Moshe Dayan and Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin - was daring and crazy to that extent,” he wrote.

However, he concludes with a slight note of doubt: “Over the years, various pieces of evidence have emerged that seem to support Israel's claim that the ship was fired on by mistake. However, a number of questions still hover over the affair, and these nourish the conspiracy theories.”                                                     



When was the last time you saw a story about the Bilderberger organization? In the past, covrage of this organization was totally non-existent. Only in the past few years have a very few mediawhore organizations issuing a very few articles on this group.

Maybe you never heard of them. Maybe that's because they aren't important. You be the judge. Every year, in a heavily guarded location, cloaked in a media blackout, there is a meeting of around 150 of the world's most influential people. This year, the head of Deutsche Bank, the Chairman of Goldman Sacks, the Prime Minister of Belgium, as well as many Government officials, Corporate representatives, educational institutional representatives and so on get together for a little chat.

No, nothing important here. No need to even mention it. If fact maybe it doesn't exist at all. The fact that none of the major mediawhore outlets all around the world never even mentioned it for years isn't a conspiracy. It's just a coincidence.

Designed in the middle of last century to "foster dialogue between Europe and North America," the so-called decision makers of the world are to rub shoulders again in an annual, secretive bash of the Bilderberg conference - and at a time of discord between Europe and the US.

Among the latest points of disagreement between Washington and Brussels are the introduction of tariffs by the US on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminum imports from the EU, difference of opinions on the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and the American withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran.

The relations between the US, the UK and largely the EU are going through a rough patch, and the intimate setting for politicians, businessmen and academics might just serve the initial purpose of the Bilderberg.

According to a statement released by the Bilderberg Meetings official website, free trade, US world leadership, as well as Saudi Arabia and Iran are on the list of the key discussion topics.

Other subjects to be debated by over 120 participants from 23 countries include Russia, populism in Europe, Artificial Intelligence, quantum computing, the US before midterms, the "post-truth" world, the future of work, the inequality challenge, and current events.

The guest list of the conference lists Prime Ministers of Serbia, Belgium, Estonia, the Netherlands, former and current US government officials, Governor of Bank of England, NATO Secretary General and a number of high-profile academics.

Bilderberg conferences are described as "private" and no minutes are taken, no report is written, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.

The secrecy of the meeting has annually prompted active protests, with activists suggesting the group grooms future political leaders behind closed doors, makes influential business deals off record and is unavailable for media and public scrutiny.

I wonder if others have had the same experience as I have had? As I cover some of the ridiculous, impossible explanations given by our government masters on tragic events of the past, those who accept the government stories often attack those of us who ask questions. One of their favorite tactics is to say “everything you say is a conspiracy theory”. Of course there is no one I know of who has ever said, “everything is a conspiracy”, but that is their fall back position.

Actually, it is the government apologists who take the position that everything the government says on these events is true and cannot be questioned. O.K., fair enough, but when something is impossible, how can that be explained? Of course, they don't and neither does our government.

So on to Bobby Kennedy. The subject article covers the fact that there was at least 13 bullets fired in the killing. The weapon used by Sirhan, only had 8 bullets. At least one of the bullets entered the head of Kennedy from the rear, even though Sirhan was shooting from the front. Never mind that! Everything you say is a “conspiracy theory”. By the way, the term “conspiracy theory” was developed by the CIA after the John Kennedy assassination to discredit those who questioned the official story without addressing the concerns.

No, everything the government says is true, even when they contradict themselves. Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Assad gassed his own people. Over 80 men, women and children at Waco committed suicide by burning themselves to death. 3 steel reinforced skyscrapers all collapsed on the same day because of kerosene fires that burn at a maximum of 1800 degrees. Vince foster walked 1 ½ miles into a park and shot himself in the head, even though there were no grass or vegetation remnants on his shoes and no bullet was ever recovered.

Why not believe everything they say?

For years after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968, analysis of the case focused on the ballistics evidence and varying witness accounts of what happened in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. But in 2004, delving through the archives of the police case file, CNN senior writer Brad Johnson found a recording that had been ignored for decades.

It was a tape inadvertently made by Polish journalist Stanislaw Pruszynski, who had recorded Kennedy’s victory speech with a cassette recorder. Kennedy then left the stage and walked through the pantry while Pruszynski detached his microphone from the podium, video of the event shows. As Pruszynski then moved toward the pantry, his tape was rolling. When Johnson listened 36 years later, he thought he heard shots, then a scream.
No other recording of the shooting had ever been discovered. No cameras were rolling as Kennedy shook hands with bus boys in the pantry, followed by gunfire described by many witnesses as two shots, a pause, and then a rapid-fire sequence of shots. Johnson turned the tape over to audio engineer Philip Van Praag. Using modern technology to limit ambient noise and slow down the tape, Van Praag counted 13 shot “impulses,” or wave forms resembling gunshots, and possibly more drowned out by screams.

It was the first new discovery in the RFK case in years. If true, it was monumental – Sirhan Sirhan’s .22-caliber Iver Johnson Cadet revolver held eight shots. Police said those bullets were accounted for, between the three shots that struck Kennedy and the five that struck five people standing behind him. But more than eight shots meant a second gun was involved, as many people critical of the investigation had argued as early as 1969.

Though some experts disagree with Van Praag, his analysis has become a key piece of evidence for those demanding a new investigation into the assassination. Kennedy’s son Robert F. Kennedy Jr. recently joined that call, in part because “There were too many bullets,” he told The Washington Post.

“You can’t fire 13 shots out of an eight-shot gun.” Kennedy’s daughter, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, also endorsed the request.

Kennedy in June 1968. Sirhan Sirhan’s gun held eight shots, but Van Praag counted about 13 shots. (Philip Van Praag)
After listening to the recording, some acoustic experts say Van Praag misidentified some sound impulses as gun shots and that only seven or eight shots could be heard on the low-fidelity tape. Forensic acoustics engineer Philip Harrison said, “I can’t find any more than the seven shots that are there.” In 2013, comments by Harrison and others helped convince U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew J. Wistrich that the tape was no smoking gun. “Van Praag’s opinion is far from ‘conclusive’ evidence of a second gunman,” Wistrich wrote, “because other experts analyzing the Pruszynski recording have reached contrary conclusions.”

But Van Praag hadn’t stopped with simply counting the gunshot sounds. Then Van Praag revealed two additional findings: That two pairs of shots occurred so closely together that they couldn’t have been fired from the same gun, and then the finding that two guns were involved firing in opposite directions — one facing Pruszynski, presumably Sirhan, and one facing away from Pruszynski

Those who had been pushing since the early 1970s for a new investigation into a second gunman, such as wounded victim Paul Schrade, saw Van Praag’s discovery as having “special meaning based on the actual bullet count” of Sirhan’s eight-shot gun.

The Los Angeles police, the district attorney and the California attorney general’s office all declined to be interviewed about the assassination and consider the case closed. All of Sirhan’s appeals at the state and federal level were rejected, including one in 2013 that considered evidence not presented at his trial in 1969, including ballistics evidence, evidence that Sirhan may have been hypnotized and the Pruszynski tape.

In June 1968, Pruszynski returned to Montreal after the shooting, where he was then living. CNN’s Johnson, a longtime RFK investigator and the co-author of a new book on the case, “The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy,” said Pruszynski did not reach out to authorities because he presumed other news media had captured the shooting with higher quality equipment than his portable cassette recorder.

But the FBI tracked down Pruszynski and arranged for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to make a dub of his recording in about early 1969, as Sirhan’s trial was beginning in Los Angeles. An open-reel dub of the tape was sent to the FBI, which decided that there was nothing pertinent to the investigation on the tape, Johnson said. Van Praag said the technology was not available in 1969 to detect the gunshots.

The FBI provided a dub to the Los Angeles police, but it appears the recording was not provided to Sirhan’s defense team at any time, Johnson said.

After Sirhan’s trial ended in April 1969, the police refused to release any of their files for another 19 years, even defeating a lawsuit by Schrade. But city officials ordered the files released in 1987, and they were made available to the public in 1988, though Johnson said the recording itself wasn’t released until 1990, as archivists were going through all of the related audio in the files.

[The assassination of Bobby Kennedy: Was Sirhan Sirhan hypnotized to be the fall guy?]

Johnson said it was 14 years to the day of the recording’s release that he sat listening to the Pruszynski tape and heard “popping sounds.” He compared it to film and video from the ballroom where Kennedy had just made his victory speech in the California Democratic primary and found the audio recording matched the moment when the shooting occurred, 12:16 a.m. on June 5. Mel Ayton, author of a book about Sirhan called “The Forgotten Terrorist,” said some experts have found that the times do not match.

Johnson said he ran the recording past sound technicians at CNN and Paramount Pictures, and they agreed there were more shots than could be heard by the naked ear. Johnson then recruited two audio specialists for deeper analysis: Van Praag, an audio engineer with extensive experience in the capabilities of magnetic tape recording; and Spencer Whitehead, an audio science professor at Georgia Institute of Technology. Both said more than eight shots had been captured on the Pruszynski tape. In 2007, three other experts who examined the recording for Johnson located “at least ten” shots, Johnson said.

“You can hear what sounds like it could be gunshots,” Van Praag said in an interview. “But it’s impossible to discern how many. … the first shots are really inaudible to the naked ear.” Witnesses said Sirhan fired two shots, then a pause, then a barrage of shots.

Using an oscilloscope and a spectrum analyzer, Van Praag said it’s possible to filter out the “gun” impulse sounds from other ambient sounds. He said a gunshot produces a very distinct impulse of extremely short duration, and that the trailing sound waves give it characteristics that differentiate gunshots from firecrackers or balloons popping. He said the police ShotSpotter technology works the same way, alerting police to gunfire but not to other, similar sounds. Harrison noted that in Birmingham, England, ShotSpotter produced so many false alerts that police removed it.

Van Praag said he found what appeared to be 13 shots, but a scream at the end of the shooting could have obscured one or more shots. Harrison and another opposing audio expert, Michael O’Dell, said in a 2011 declaration in Sirhan’s case that they found seven likely gunshot sounds and the scream may have obscured the eighth shot.

Harrison, who testifies in court cases for JP French and Associates, said that analyzing sound waves is “very much an interpretive exercise.” On the Pruszynski tape, “I’m not saying there’s nothing there. But his interpretation of gunshots, I’m saying I’m not convinced that there are” more than eight shots.

Looking more closely at the oscillograph, Van Praag found that shots three and four, and then shots seven and eight, are too close together to have been fired by the same gun. A documentary by the Discovery Channel found that Sirhan’s .22-caliber pistol couldn’t have been fired that quickly. That further convinced Van Praag that a second gun was present in the hotel pantry. “Once you recognize there are more than eight,” Van Praag said, “then two guns were fired.”

Next, Van Praag used sophisticated software to determine subtle differences in the resonance characteristics of the gunshots, and fired different guns to analyze their sounds. He said he was able to show that shots 3, 5, 8, 10 and 12 were fired from a different gun, because their sound waves had an anomaly not found in the other eight shots. He said the five anomaly shots were fired in a different direction from the other eight shots. Van Praag said his tests showed those five shots were fired by an H&R 922 .22-caliber revolver — Sirhan was firing an Iver Johnson Cadet .22-caliber revolver — in the direction opposite of Sirhan’s gun.

“The conclusion is inescapable,” Van Praag wrote in a 2011 declaration in Sirhan’s case, “that there was a second gun fired by a second shooter during the shooting that resulted in the death of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and that the five shots from the second gun were fired in a direction opposite the direction in which Sirhan fired.”

“I think it’s a flawed analysis,” Harrison said. He said Van Praag’s test shots were fired outdoors, but the Kennedy shots were fired in a cramped pantry. “Outdoor acoustics are very different from indoor,” Harrison said. Harrison produced his own oscillograph of the Pruszynski tape that showed seven shots and a possible eighth, also drowned out by screams, he said.

O’Dell filed a declaration in Sirhan’s case saying that he and Harrison both concluded that seven sounds “could safely be attributed to actual gunshots, with the eighth potentially masked by a loud scream” but that other “implosive or plosive sounds were different, and might have environmental causes other than gunshot.”

The California attorney general’s office noted that Sirhan admitted firing the shots that killed Kennedy, though he later said he did so at his lawyers’ instructions and that he didn’t remember firing the shots. The attorney general noted that “under California’s vicarious liability law, [Sirhan] would still be guilty of murder and assault even if there were a second gunman who actually shot Senator Kennedy.”

Johnson continued to push the case, and Robert Kennedy Jr. provided an assist in 2012 when he sent a letter to then-Attorney General Eric H. Holder supporting Schrade’s call for a new investigation. Johnson said Holder ordered the FBI to reexamine the Pruszynski tape and Van Praag’s findings.
In 2013, the FBI issued a Report of Examination that said the tape was “of insufficient quality to definitively classify the impulse events as gunshots, confirm the number of gunshots or determine the identification of specific weapon(s).”

Van Praag said the FBI had used antiquated techniques and didn’t have the technology with sufficient resolution to discern differences between multiple gunshots. The FBI also never contacted Van Praag to discuss his findings.

Johnson said the report was “incomplete and inconclusive,” and “doesn’t rise to the level of the FBI in doing serious work. They phoned it in without picking up the phone and calling Van Praag.” Both he and Van Praag said a complete, high-tech analysis of the Pruszynski tape is still needed to eliminate any questions about whether more than eight shots were fired in the Ambassador pantry.
Kennedy lived for about 25 hours after the shooting, and died 50 years ago today, at 1:44 a.m. on June 6, 1968. He was 42 years old.

It is a fundamental principle in the leftist philosophy to erode any freedom for the average person to make their own decisions. No, you can't watch Rosanne because we don't like her. No, you can't have Boy Scouts because we don't want you to. No, no Bible reading in school because we don't believe in it. No you can't say mother or father or man or woman or a thousand other words because someone out there is offended. Bake my cake for a wedding that your faith says is offensive to God because I decide what your faith should be.

Yes, the leftists are on the march. Look out, Robert E. Lee. We're taking down your statues because we decided that 150 years ago you were a racist. We don't like the Confederate battle flag which hasn't had any meaning since 1865, so take all of them down. Now, on to you, Miss America. Yes, the candidates traditionally have had nice figures. Well, we don't like it (maybe since we don't have nice figures), so no more bikinis.

Dear leftists: If you don't like a flag or a statue or some mild English words or a television program or a baker's faith or a beautiful woman, here's a solution for you. Don't look at the flag. Don't look at the statue. Ignore the words you don't like hearing. If someone won't bake your cake, go to another baker. Don't watch a television program you don't like. If you see a beautiful woman, look away AND leave the rest of us alone.

The next edition of the Miss America pageant will scrap swimsuits and will be more inclusive to women of all sizes, the contest announced Tuesday.
Gretchen Carlson, the chairwoman of the Miss America board of directors, announced on "Good Morning America" that the event will no longer feature a swimsuit portion.

Miss America will be a competition, not a pageant, Carlson said on the show Tuesday."We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance. That's huge," she said.

Carlson also said the new Miss America competition will be more inclusive to women of "all shapes and sizes."
The official Miss America Twitter account tweeted a short video of a white bikini going up in a puff of smoke with the hashtag #byebyebikini.In place of the swimsuit contest, the contestants will take part in a live interactive session with the judges, according to a statement from the Miss America Organization, "where she will highlight her achievements and goals in life and how she will use her talents, passion, and ambition to perform the job of Miss America."

It's not the only change coming

But the elimination of swimsuits isn't the only change coming to the 97-year-old event. The evening gown competition is being revamped as well. Carlson said contestants will now be able to wear "whatever they choose."
Contestants will also discuss how they would advance their social-impact initiatives during this part of the contest. The talent portion of the competition will remain.

The rise of the #MeToo movement is powering the changes, Carlson said.
"We're experiencing a cultural revolution in our country with women finding the courage to stand up and have their voices heard on many issues,"she said in the statement. "Miss America is proud to evolve as an organization and join this empowerment movement."

Some changes to the pageant's format had been expected since the Miss America organization is now being led entirely by women for the first time.
Just last month Regina Hopper was appointed president and CEO of the Miss America Organization, and Marjorie Vincent-Tripp was named as chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Foundation. They joined Carlson, who was named chairwoman in December.

The trio takes over for the leaders of the Miss America Organization who resigned in December after the Huffington Post revealed that leaders and employees had sent emails disparaging pageant contestants, including references to their weight and sex lives.

A new era for the organization
In the statement announcing the new leaders, Miss America said the all-female team signaled a new era for the organization, best known for its widely televised pageants.

In another first, all three leaders are former pageant winners in the Miss America system.
Hopper, former CEO of Intelligent Transportation Society of America, was Miss Arkansas 1983. Vincent-Tripp, an assistant attorney general at the Florida Office of the Attorney General, was Miss America 1991. Finally, Gretchen Carlson, the advocate and former Fox News host, was Miss America 1989.
The next Miss America competition is September 9 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.


Supreme Court rules in favor of Colorado baker who refused to make wedding cake for gay couple for religious reasons

Even some of the liberal leftists on the U.S. Supreme Court couldn't stand this recent attack by the gay tyrants. Going all the way back to 2012, some gay troublemakers went into a bakery run by openly Christian people and demanded they bake a cake for a gay wedding. The bakers respectively refused as it violated their Christian beliefs. -----And we're off---.

A lawsuit was initiated against the bakers alleging a violation of the gay couple's civil rights. Today the U.S. Supreme Court, in a 7 to 2 decision supported the baker's rights to refuse business from those whose practices violated their beliefs.

There are a couple of questions: Where did the gay couple get the 10's of thousands of dollars to prosecute this case? Can it be shown that this was their intent from the beginning?

Now that this is settled, the bakers should initiate a suit of their own for damages and court costs. This was obviously an attempt to bankrupt a business whose personal beliefs didn't fall in line with the gay agenda. It's time that we all understand that just as gay people have the right to practice their lifestyle and support it, those who do not practice that particular lifestyle have every right not to support it. It's called freedom.

The Supreme Court on Monday handed a narrow victory to a Christian baker from Colorado who refused for religious reasons to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

The justices, in a 7-2 decision, faulted the Colorado Civil Rights Commission's handling of the claims brought against Jack Phillips, saying it had showed a hostility to religion. In doing so, the commission violated his religious rights under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
But the court did not issue a definitive ruling on the circumstances under which people can seek exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on their religious views.

The commission had said Phillips violated the Colorado anti-discrimination law that bars businesses from refusing service based on race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation by rebuffing gay couple David Mullins and Charlie Craig in 2012.

Two of the court's four liberals, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, joined the five conservative justices in the ruling authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy.  
"The commission's hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment's guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion," Kennedy wrote, referring to the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

"The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts, all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market," Kennedy said.

Of the 50 states, 21 including Colorado have anti-discrimination laws protecting gay people.
The closely watched case before the Supreme Court, which in 2015 legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, pitted gay rights against religious liberty. President Donald Trump's administration intervened in the case in support of Phillips.



In an interview yesterday with RT, Syrian President Assad covered a number of wide ranging topics. Among those was one that stuck out. He demanded that the U.S. leave Syrian territory. That is reasonable. The U.S. has illegally invaded the territory of a sovereign nation without being attacked by that nation. Also, the U.S. has no authorization to be there from the U.N. or any authorization from Congress. Yet, there we are.

But he went further. He stated that if the U.S. doesn't leave voluntarily, the Syrian military will use force. So how will that work out? Right now the U.S. has around 2,000 troops on the ground there, but has an enormous number of support troops in nearby nations. They also have enough firepower on ships and planes to destroy the earth. Surely Assad knows this. There are those who think this is a message from Russia and maybe others. If Assad's troops attack the small number of U.S. troops, it is a certainty that the U.S. will retaliate with overwhelming force.

Maybe Assad is bluffing. Maybe he thinks that the U.S. will not risk a world war over this and eventually and gradually leave. Let's hope the latter is the case. In any event, if Syria attacks the U.S. troops, he would only do that if he was absolutely certain Russia, and possibly other nations, would support him. I doubt that anyone would think a world war is a good idea. Why are we there again?

Bruce                                       New World Order News

In an interview with RT, Syrian President Bashar Assad said it is vital for Syria to expel US troops from its territory. He said the first option would be to get the US to agree to leave, but said Syria was “going to resort to liberating those areas by force” if necessary.

“We don’t have any other options,” Assad insisted. He noted that US troops are in the country with no legal basis, and pointed out the consequences of the US having similarly entered Iraq with no legal basis.

“They have to learn the lesson. Iraq is no exception, and Syria is no exception. People will not accept foreigners in this region anymore,” Assad added. Syria never authorized a US military presence in their country, but the Pentagon has indicated they intend to keep troops there over the long-term.
At present, all US troops in Syria are within territory held by the Kurdish YPG. The Kurds style this region as semi-autonomous, though they never finished negotiating the details of that autonomy with the central government. The Syrian government and YPG have had a tense relationship, though only rarely have they fought directly.

Syria’s army, depleted from years of war, is unlikely to be able to expel even the small number of US troops in the country as a practical matter. Still, Assad has made this a long-term priority for his government, and that greatly complicates the Pentagon’s plans to stay.

Still another nail in our coffin---- The subject article covers a disturbing increase in the margin debt in our nation. In the crash of 1929, as the market declined, debt secured by stock value became unsecured, thus activating margin calls. As that happened, forced sales of stocks led to a further decline in the market and more margin calls.

The article says there are trillions of dollars in debt secured by stock value. Obviously, if the market declines, there will be margin calls --- just like in 1929. In the movie “Trading Places” wealthy traders got on the wrong side of a purchase of Orange Juice Futures. At the end of the trading day, they had lost an enormous sum of money. Since the purchase of the futures were financed on margin, they received a margin call that they could not pay. All of their assets were immediately put up for sale.

That is exactly what will happen when our market declines. Trillions of dollars in unpayable debts will be called. Then, trillions of dollars in assets will be auctioned off. All property values will plummet due to an inventory spike. Then comes the depression.

If some are skeptical, ask them this: If the value of stocks corrects, how will the 300 billion dollars borrowed against their value get paid? History shows, sooner or later, this kind of recklessness always leads to disaster.

Bruce                                              New World Order News

We are in store for the margin call to potentially end all margin calls. The peak of margin debt, one of the primary factors in the 2000 dotcom bubble collapse, never got close to $100B.

Investor margin debt is currently over $300B. And as the below chart reveals, that very margin debt (this time, concurrent with Fed money printing liquidity) has bid up stock market asset prices.

Remember, when the market falls dramatically, margin sellers don’t get to wait it out. Brokerages and banks sell their shares whether they want them sold or not in order to make sure they get their loan back before shares go to zero. And that selling drives further margin selling. It’s a hellish recipe for incredible, unstoppable losses that happen at breathtaking speed.

Brad Lamensdorf, manager of the AdvisorShares Ranger Equity Bear, warns this market could be about to get “nasty” for the bulls.
“How much credit is out there, borrowed against stock portfolios? Trillions of dollars,” Lamensdorf said in a report co-written with John Del Vecchio. “As interest rates creep up and more portfolios have been used to finance asset purchases, a huge storm can be created if stocks and bonds take even a minor dip.”

As the old saying goes, you can always buy a boat, but you can’t always sell one. “Shedding assets when everyone else is feeling pain leads to terrible deals for the seller,” Lamensdorf wrote, adding that we may be reaching a tipping point.

“Right now, small changes in rates might not be noticeable. However, like boiling a frog in a pot, it all adds up,” Lamensdorf concluded. “Investors with sizable portfolios have the most to lose. But, they also have the most to gain if they can navigate the market unemotionally and be greedy when others are fearful.”

You just can't make this stuff up! The subject article from the English newspaper, The Sun, whips up fear to readers that the Cossacks are going to use whips on attendees to the World Cup. You will note that even their pictures don't show anyone being whipped in a demonstration against Putin in Moscow. They also state that some of the protesters were “detained”. O.K., how is that different from the U.S.?

No, this is more ridiculous nonsense from these mediawhore propaganda news outlets. Does anyone actually read these rags anymore? I'm sure that those who attend the world cup are in no danger of being whipped by horse riding Cossacks. In fact, if any country should be ashamed of their treatment of citizens, it should be England. Just last week they sent a woman to prison for questioning the accuracy of the reports of the Holocaust. Another person was sent to prison for 13 months for making public proclamations on an ongoing trail. People there have gone to jail for resisting intruders into their homes.

Censorship, propaganda, denial of rights, prison for those who displease the State, record murders from knife attacks ---- that's today's England.

THREE Lions fans who cause trouble in the Russian capital Moscow face being whipped by feared Cossack troops on horseback.
The pro-Kremlin Cossack fighters – who used leather whips to attack protesters at an opposition rally in Moscow at the weekend – are to patrol the streets of the Russian capital at the World Cup.

The fighters, in traditional Cossack fur hats, joined forces with police and the National Guard security force to crack down on Saturday’s protest ahead of Vladimir Putin’s inauguration for a fourth presidential term yesterday.

More than 700 people, including the opposition leader Alexei Navalny, were detained.

“We’ll do over anyone who makes trouble against Putin,” an unnamed Cossack was reported as saying by the Meduza news website.
Cossacks also used sticks to lash out at protesters who had gathered at Moscow’s Pushkin Square.

According to The Bell news outlet, the Cossack units received funding totalling £187,000 between 2016 and 2018 for training sessions on how to ensure public safety in Moscow.

“I’ve covered these fake ‘Cossacks’ before. They are violent thugs for hire, doing jobs too dirty even [for] crooked cops,” Alexey Kovalev, the editor of the Coda Story news outlet, wrote on his Twitter account.

“They’ll be providing ‘security’ at the World Cup in June. Now you can freak out.”

Another of the 11 World Cup host cities, Rostov-on-Don, has also opted to use Cossack units to support police activity during the international football tournament, which takes place from June 14 to July 15.

More than 300 Cossacks are also due to work alongside police in Rostov-on-Don, where four World Cup group matches and a round-of-16 game will be held.

The Kremlin has in recent years encouraged a revival of the Cossacks, the descendants of the fiery Tsarist-era horsemen who once guarded Russia’s southern borders.

Libtard's logic = "oh it's a rude, racist comment towards our enemy President Trump, so that's okay".

I guess if his show isn't cancelled then you once again show the world your cancerous, racist hypocrisy, because this is a direct, exactly the same comparison to what exactly Roseanne Barr was just fired over. Exactly the same! Apes vs Orangutan's. The difference here is, Trump supporters are not offended, nor do we care what someone says, the only reason we shove this in your pos racist faces, is because this is what you constantly do to us, as shown right here with Roseanne Barr! So, let's sit back and see if the left does what they so vehimently say they will not tolerate......

The world is waiting oh "more educated, morally superior, more intelligent" libtards - let's see that good ol' libtard 'outrage', we're waiting cnn, leftist

Thanks, owned! MAGA! Liberals are enemies of America, and they are getting schooled daily! ha ha told ya so. 

Aren't you getting tired of a teeny, tiny, group of leftist weirdos telling you what you can say, write, think or watch?

Today GayBC (formerly known as ABC) canceled the sitcom “Rosanne” due to, what was considered, a racist tweet by Rosanne Barr. I've read the tweet and you can too. It certainly was crude, but I'm not sure about racist, but let's say it was. She has the right to say it. If you don't believe that, ask yourself if she's been arrested for committing a crime?

People make stupid and yes, even racist remarks all the time. Someone as old as Rosanne has spoken and written millions of words over her lifetime. All of us speak and write millions of words over a lifetime. Should all of those words and statements be subject to the PC police, there would scarcely be anyone who wouldn't have spoken or written something offensive. That's why we have the first amendment. We all have the right to speak without censorship. We have the right to say things that are stupid, false, improper, insensitive and yes, offensive. Unless there is an intent to commit imminent harm, there is no crime. Therefore they should not be censored.

Last night I viewed a compilation of highlights from the 1970's TV show, “All in the Family”. There were many statements in the show that would not be allowed today. They would not have been allowed in the 1950's. Guess what? No one died from those remarks. Soon after that time, the PC police started in. Jimmy the Greek was fired for an insensitive remark. Hank Williams Jr. was fired for being insensitive. Many professional athletes have been fined and ostracized for not being politically correct. Our universities have posted hundreds of common words that are not allowed on campus. Some institutions no longer allow “mother or father or boy or girl”. If we continue to submit, they will continue to press on. The very foundation of a free society is being removed.

So, O.K. Rosanne. I am exercising my First Amendment right to state my opinion  that your tweet was stupid and possibly offensive. So what. That's your right. Just as it's GayBC's right to continually and constantly push the LGBT agenda. That offends me, but I'll live. French poet, Voltaire was quoted as saying "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it". I hope that doesn't offend you.

Roseanne Barr’s revived sitcom has been cancelled after she posted a racist and Islamophobic tweet that attacked former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The sitcom star falsely alleged that Jarrett, who was born in Iran to American parents, has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, and compared her to an ape. Barr wrote: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” using Jarrett’s initials.

ABC swiftly announced the show’s cancellation. The network said in a statement: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”

Bob Iger, the chief executive of Disney, which owns ABC, supported the decision. Iger wrote on Twitter: “There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.”

Barr, one of Donald Trump’s most high-profile supporters, apologized for the post as outrage grew, and announced she’d be quitting Twitter. She also deleted the tweet.
Barr was replying to a post from a user that accused Jarrett, a long-serving adviser to the president, of covering up the Obama administration’s alleged “misdeeds”.

When a Twitter user told Barr that her tweet was offensive and racist – Jarrett is African American – Barr responded by writing: “Muslims r NOT a race.” Shortly after, Barr reiterated her stance in another post: “ISLAM is not a RACE, lefties. Islam includes EVERY RACE of people.”
Barr later apologized. She wrote: “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me – my joke was in bad taste.”

MSNBC reported that Jarrett received a call from Iger before news broke of the cancellation. “This should be a teaching moment,” she said.
Barr’s tweets sparked condemnation from many prominent figures, including one of the sitcom’s consulting producers, Wanda Sykes, who announced that she would not be returning for the proposed second season.

Barr’s co-star Sara Gilbert, who plays Darlene, condemned the tweets as “abhorrent”. Gilbert wrote: “Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show. I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.”

The 65-year-old Barr has been in the public eye recently after her eponymous sitcom returned after a two-decade hiatus. The now-cancelled show was ABC’s most-watched “new” series, averaging almost 18 million viewers per episode. In the show, Roseanne Conner plays a working-class Trump supporter, but Barr herself has not been shy about her allegiance to the president, frequently engaging with his critics online and peddling conspiracy theories shared by Trump’s base, such as “Pizzagate”, “Pedogate” and theories about the murder of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

Barr on Monday also attacked Chelsea Clinton on Twitter, writing “Chelsea Soros Clinton” and claiming the former first daughter is connected to George Soros. Barr said Soros wants to “overthrow” the “US constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore US law & favor ‘feelings’ instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that ‘racist’.”
Barr also retweeted a post comparing Clinton to Donkey from Shrek.

After Clinton replied with a tweet of her own, Barr apologized in sarcastic fashion. “Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!,” she wrote, again invoking Soros, a frequent target of Trump and the right. “I Please forgive me! By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?”

A spokesperson for Soros called the tweet “an affront”.
After her tweets and the outrage that followed, Barr announced she was quitting the site. “I apologize,” she wrote. “I am now leaving Twitter.”
News of Roseanne’s cancellation was met with cautious positivity in Hollywood. Actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani tweeted: “I’m glad Roseanne is canceled. The backlash to its cancellation is going to be a deafening nightmare. Nothing good has come of this entire thing.”

Westworld star Jeffrey Wright was also concerned about the reaction from the right. “Aaaaannnd cue the people who just celebrated the NFL targeting player protests defending Roseanne Barr now on 1st amendment grounds. 3,2,1....popcorn,” he tweeted.

Bruce Helford, the Roseanne show’s executive producer and showrunner, said he was “horrified” by the comments. Helford wrote: “On behalf of all the writers and producers, we worked incredibly hard to create an amazing show. I was personally horrified and saddened by the comments and in no way do they reflect the values of the people who worked so hard to make this the iconic show that it is.”

Barr has also been dropped by her agency ICM Partners. “We are all greatly distressed by the disgraceful and unacceptable tweet from Roseanne Barr this morning,” a statement read. “What she wrote is antithetical to our core values, both as individuals and as an agency. Consequently, we have notified her that we will not represent her. Effective immediately, Roseanne Barr is no longer a client.”

Over the past several months I have received dozens of calls from all over the nation leaving a recorded message stating that I was about to be arrested for tax evasion. Since I now get so many “scam calls” I just block and delete these kinds of calls. I also send a text warning the sender that they are actually violating the law in impersonating the IRS.

Now, I am seeing that this is spreading all over the country. The subject article tells a story of an individual who almost fell for this scam. First of all, the IRS will never call you and leave a message that you are under investigation. They always send a letter first, leaving contact information with an official address and phone number. Should you receive a call like this you may want to file a complaint with the FCC, but it probably it will go nowhere as these calls apparently come from overseas.

I would advise not to call them back. They will then have your phone number as well as trying to pump you for personal information. Should you dare to call, ask them to identify the information they have. Ask them for their contact information as well as IRS identification. Then tell them, you will call them back after you have verified their authority. I'm betting they will end this call well in advance. It's getting almost impossible to answer our phones anymore as it seems that the majority of calls are sales or some sort of scam. ------So much communication and so little opportunity to use it.

I got a call from a Washington, D.C. number yesterday with an automated message telling me it was the “Criminal Investigation Division” of the IRS, and to call them back immediately.

I did. Got on the phone with an Indian sounding man who told me his name was Matt Smith, or some generic sounding American name. He told me there was a warrant out for my arrest because I fraudulently claimed some tax exemptions over the past three years.

I wasn’t thinking straight because I’m in the process of buying a house, and my credit is really important. It sounded convincing until he asked me to pay.
He said there were two ways it could be handled, either “privately or publicly.” I could either pay the debt now and it wouldn’t be reported to any credit agencies, or I could do it publicly, in which case the debt would be reported to the police and local news outlets.

He told me all my assets had been frozen and my bank accounts were “black listed.” It didn’t seem like a term an IRS agent would use, but whatever. Then he told me since my accounts were frozen, the only way I could pay the debt was with gift cards from the grocery store, and that I needed to stay on the line with him the entire time until I got the cards. WTF? How am I going to buy gift cards if my bank account has been frozen? Do you think I just have $3,000 in cash on me right now?

That’s when it clicked. This is bullshit. I lived in DC for a few years and I know the area. I started asking him how he gets to work, what neighborhood he lives in, what Metro stop he gets off at, etc.

He just hung up on me and when I tried to call back it just kept coming up as a busy signal.
I’m laughing about it now, but I was shitting bricks on the phone yesterday. I’m an educated, moderately intelligent person, and he had me going. They probably trick elderly people with this scam all the time.



I just don't know what to say. This article reveals the U.S. government in cooperation with the British government, has established a bio-weapons lab at Porton Down in England. As one reads about the hundreds of thousands of experiments and views the pictures, many emotions may well up. Shame, outrage, shock, sadness and disgust are just a few. What has happened to us? Better said, what has happened to humanity? Is there no limit to the depravity that exists in some? Is there no conscience in those who go along just to have a job or position of importance?

Anyway, as much as I desire to reveal things that no one else will touch, you may want to think long and hard before going on.

Dilyana Gaytandzhieva is a Bulgarian investigative journalist and Middle East Correspondent. Over the last two years she has published a series of revealing reports on weapons smuggling. Two months ago South Front published her investigation into the Pentagon bio laboratories in 25 countries across the world. Her current report provides an overview of the Pentagon-funded experiments at the secretive UK military laboratory Porton Down near Salisbury, where an ex-Russian spy and his daughter were allegedly poisoned with a nerve agent.
By Dilyana Gaytandzhieva exclusively for SouthFront

The Pentagon has spent at least $70 million on military experiments involving tests with deadly viruses and chemical agents at Porton Down – the UK military laboratory near the city of Salisbury. The secretive biological and chemical research facility is located just 13 km from where on 4th  March  former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a bench following an alleged Novichok nerve agent poisoning.

The Porton Down Lab is located just 13 km from the site where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found and from where they were rushed to hospital.
Information obtained from the US federal contracts registry reveals that the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has funded a number of military projects performed at the UK Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), or Porton Down, over the last decade. Among them: experimental respiratory infection of non-human primates (marmosets) with Anthrax, Ebola virus, Marburg virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus, Western equine encephalitis virus, and Eastern equine encephalitis virus. The US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has also funded experiments on animals which were exposed to chemical agents such as Sulfur Mustard and Phosgene gas. Phosgene gas was used as a chemical weapon during World War I where it was responsible for about 85 % of the 100,000 deaths caused by chemical weapons.
DTRA has also been granted full access to DSTL scientific and technical capabilities, and test data under a 2011 contract for the collaboration and exchange of scientific and technical capabilities with the UK Ministry of Defence.

At least 122,000 animals used for military chemical and biological experiments at Porton Down
Animal experiments are classified as confidential in the UK. Under section 24 of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986, it is a criminal offence to disclose certain information about animal experiments in the UK.
Data obtained via the Freedom of Information Act though gives an idea of the dimensions of military chemical and biological experiments carried out at Porton Down. A total of 122,050 animals have been exposed to deadly pathogens, chemicals and incurable diseases over the last decade (2005-2016).

Monkeys being used in warfare agent testing at Porton Down in the past
Animals used include mice, guinea pigs, rats, pigs, ferrets, sheep, and non-human primates. Some of the deadly experiments have been sponsored by the Pentagon under contracts between DSTL and DTRA. Scientists at Porton Down have infected, or poisoned, animals in order to measure time to death and lethal dose of exposure. In practice, the possible use of the researched virus/chemical gas as a weapon.

Ebola as bioweapon
12 Marmoset monkeys were experimentally infected with the Ebola virus, via aerosol, at Porton Down under a Pentagon-funded project – Experimental respiratory infection of marmosets with Ebola virus Kikwit (the Zaire strain of the Ebola virus which killed more than 245 people in Zaire, now Democratic Republic of Congo, in 1995). The project was part of a $6.3 million DTRA program running at Porton Down from 2012 to 2016 – Development of common marmoset models for category A/B pathogens and product evaluation in marmosets.

The experiment’s stated goal was to measure the lethal dose of exposure and time to death meaning that the Ebola virus Kikwit was researched for its potential as a bioweapon. All infected marmoset monkeys died from 6 to 10 days after exposure to the Ebola virus.

The Pentagon also funded studies on the deadly Marburg virus:  a $2.6 million project – Experimental respiratory Marburg virus haemorrhagic fever infection in the common marmoset, and another $1.4 million project – Marburg virus model development, which were undertaken at Porton Down in 2017. This virus causes viral hemorrhagic feverand is listed as a Category A Bioterrorism Agent. All infected monkeys died from 8 to 10 days. The aim of the studies was to examine the dose and time to death for animals exposed to aerosolized Marburg virus.

Under another $4.8 million project, funded by DTRA, Porton Down scientists along with the Pentagon contractor Mapp Biopharmaceutical tested Susceptibility and lethality of Western Equine Encephalitis Virus in mice when infected by the aerosol route. Mapp Biopharmaceutical is an American pharmaceutical company, which has developed an Ebola vaccine from the tobacco plant. According to the study, aerosol infection is the likely route of exposure to Western Equine Encephalitis Virus in a biowarfare scenario.

12 Marmoset monkeys were infected with anthrax at Porton Down during an experiment funded by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The study, Experimental respiratory anthrax infection in the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus), aimed at determining the lethal dose needed to kill 50% of the animals or the so called LD50 indicator. The value of LD50 for a substance is the dose required to kill half the members of the tested population after a specified test duration. Six of the monkeys died from anthrax from 40 to 140 h.

Chemical agent tests
British military scientists were funded by DTRA to perform Chemical Agent system testing as part of a $39.7 million Pentagon program (2012-2017) at Porton Down. Documents prove that the US Department of Defense Agency – DTRA funded animal experiments with chemical agents at the secretive British military lab.

In 2016 Porton Down scientists along with their colleagues from the US Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense published the results of a joint study Acute Gene Expression Profile of Lung Tissue Following Sulfur Mustard Inhalation Exposure in Large Anesthetized Swine. According to the funding information, this work was supported by two contracts with the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (US Department of Defense). During the experiment at Porton Down 16 pigs were exposed to mustard gas for about 10 minutes, at 12 h post exposure the animals were killed (three of them died during the experiment due to complications) and a full post-mortem examination performed in order to determine the lung damage caused by the sulfur mustard inhalation.

Sulfur mustard  is a chemical warfare agent that was first used on the battlefield in World War I. It has been classified as a Class 1 human carcinogen, meaning that it can also cause cancer. Mustard agents were regulated under the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention as substances with no use other than in chemical warfare.

The last use of Sulfur mustard in battle was confirmed in Syria in 2016. According to the BBC, Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists used mustard gas against government forces in Deir-ez-Zor. The same chemical gas was confirmed to have been used by ISIS against Kurds in Northern Iraq. According to The Independent, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirmed that laboratory tests had come back positive for sulfur mustard, after around 35 Kurdish troops fell sick on the battlefield in August 2015.

According to information obtained from the US Federal contracts registry, Porton Down scientists 5 months ago completed a $ 2 million military program involving chemical gas experiments on animals. This program was funded by the US Department of the Army on behalf of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD) and was launched in 2008 and further extended in 2012. The work on the program included Phosgene Gas tests. Amongst them – Continued Model Development to Establish Reproducible Phosgene Injury at 24 Hours. According to the program documents, the purpose was to monitor the development of acute lung injury following phosgene exposure. Phosgene gas was used extensively as a chemical weapon, most notably during World War I.

Coincidence: Guinea pigs at Porton Down and at the home of the poisoned ex-spy
Tests using nerve agents VX and VM on guinea pigs were  carried out at Poton Down in 2015. The project was funded by the UK Ministry of Defence. Interestingly, ginea pigs were also found at Sergei Skripal’s home in Salisbury, just a few kilometers away from the secretive chemical and biological military lab. A photo of the Skripals’ pets – a cat and guinea pigs, was posted by his daughter Yulia on Facebook.

Guinea pigs were found in the house of the poisoned ex-spy in Salisbury, just a few kilometers away from Porton Down, where such guinea pigs were used for nerve agent chemical tests.

In a 2015 report to the UK parliament the UK Ministry of Defence does confirm the use of animals for military chemical and biological experiments. The ministry states: “DSTL is proud to deliver cutting-edge science and technology for the benefit of national defence and security. Part of its work is to provide safe and effective countermeasures against the threat posed by chemical and biological weapons and to enhance the treatment of conventional casualties on the battlefield, which could not currently be achieved without the use of animals”.

Porton Down scientists test chemical gas on London Tube passengers
Chemical gas was released on thousands of unsuspecting commuters during a military experiment on the London Underground, documents reveal. These chemical tests were performed in 2013 by scientist from Porton Down.

Porton Down scientists released chemical gas on the London Underground in 2013.
The UK government never informed the British public of the military experiment on the London Underground. Thousands of people were exposed to chemical gas without their knowledge. Nor did the Ministry of Defence ask for their consent to participate in such military experiments. Information about the project can be obtained from a 2016 US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document entitled Environmental Assessment of Proposed NYC Subway Tracer Particle and Gas Releases for the Underground Transport Restoration Project.

The document provides information about other programs running in the USA and UK from 2005 to 2016. Among them are the London Underground chemical trials. They were conducted by the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL), also known as Porton Down.
Information obtained from the UK government contracts registry confirms that Porton Down scientists conducted a study involving access to the London tube under a 3-year contract with the London Underground (2011-2014). The content of the project is not specified though.

According to the contract documents, the London Underground cannot communicate “on these matters with any media representative unless specifically granted permissions to do so. In the event that the Contract becomes classified the Contractor must safeguard information. Before publishing information to the general public, Porton Down may redact any information that would be exempt from disclosure if it was the subject of a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act”.

The London Underground is prohibited from public disclosure of information about the Porton Down project without permission, according to the contract documents. Source:

The controversial military laboratory was investigated for chemical and biological experiments on humans in the past. Up to 20,000 people took part in various trials from 1949 to 1989. In 2008, the UK Ministry of Defence paid 360 veterans £3 million without admitting liability.

Ronald George Maddison  was a twenty-year-old Royal Air Force engineer who died while undergoing tests with sarin at Porton Down in 1953,  according to declassified military documents.

Powder dissemination of chemical or biological agents
Presently Porton Down scientists produce and test dissemination of biological and/or chemical agents as they did in the past, documents from the UK government contracts registry reveal. Although the information is redacted, it still raises questions as to why the UK military needs to develop a new technique for dissemination of chemical or biological agents via the inhalational route. A private contractor – Red Scientific Ltd, was awarded a £50,000 contract in 2012 “to explore techniques that could be used to manipulate the flow ability of dry powders, principally to understand the delivery of solid particulate by inhalation, and to apply a variety of innovative powder manipulation techniques to a specific irritant powder (provided by DSTL)”.  If the work in 2012/13 proves to be successful there is potential for a second phase to be pursued in 2013/14 examining other powder materials with the same techniques, the contract documents reveal.  The project’s stated goal is marked improvement in the efficiency of aerosolisation over current techniques used at DSTL.

DSTL has awarded a private contractor to explore more advanced techniques for powder dissemination of chemical/biological agents. Source:
DSTL has also tested dissemination techniques in wind tunnels. A private company – NIAB Trading Ltd, was awarded a £12,020 contract to provide facilities and expertise to assist with wind tunnel assessments.

Such experiments involving the release of bacteria were conducted in the UK in the past during the joint UK-US military operation DICE. A declassified US Army document reveals that a series of 24 field trials took place off the coast of Portland and in Lyme Bay in the UK in 1975. Each field trial involved the spraying of massive bacterial aerosols from a converted Land Rover. Although the US and UK joined the UN Conventions on the prohibition of chemical and biological weapons, documents prove that their military programs have never ended.

US official lied in Brussels about the Pentagon biolaboratories
Robert Kadlec, Assistant Secretary at the US Department of Health, categorically denied the existence of an American bio-weapons program at a seminar on the threat of biological and chemical weapons. The event was organized by the European Parliament on 7th March in Brussels. Asked why the information about the US military bio-laboratories in 25 countries bordering on Russia, China and Iran (the Pentagon’s main rivals) is classified, Kadlec responded: “They are not classified, they are openly available to anyone who wants to look at them.”
Documents about the Pentagon offshore bio-laboratories prove him wrong though.

According to the 2005 Agreement between the US DoD and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine the Ukrainian government is prohibited from public disclosure of sensitive information about the US program. The Pentagon has been operating 11 biolaboartories in Ukraine.

Porton Down is just one of the Pentagon-funded military laboratories in 25 countries across the world, where the US Army produces and tests man-made viruses, bacteria and toxins in direct violation of the UN convention. These US bio-laboratories are funded by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) under a $ 2.1 billion military program– Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP), and are located in former Soviet Union countries such as Georgia and Ukraine, the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa.

The Pentagon-funded military facilities are not under the direct control of the host state as the US military and civilian personnel is working under diplomatic cover. The local governments are prohibited from public disclosure of sensitive information about the foreign military program running on their own territory. Without being under the direct control of the host state, these Pentagon bio-laboratories put the health of the local population at risk and must be closed.
