ISRAEL ATTACKS SYRIA. RUSSIAN PLANE DOWN. 15 DEAD.

We're getting closer and closer. Our spoiled brat Israel is doing everything they can to start World War 3, then sit back and let us fight it.

Last night, once again, Israeli jets launched missiles into Syria. Unfortunately, a Russian reconnaissance plane got in the way of a Syrian defense missile. The story is Israeli jets were deliberately shadowing the Russian plane to avoid being hit by Syrian defenses.

So here we are --- one step closer. Although Putin has kept his cool, for now, feedback in Russia is not so cool. Having 15 Russians killed due to Israel's illegal attack on Syria, is not going down well with the average Russian citizen.

I'm going to speculate on the probable Russian reaction. Obviously, it would not be in Putin's interest to lose any more Russians due to the actions of Israel or any other uninvited guest in this war of regime change. He must upgrade the Russian defenses in Syria and respond to any potential threat to his forces there. In simple language it means any Israeli jets taking off to Lebanon or any other location towards Syria, must be met immediately.

No normal person wants this upcoming war. Sadly, very few in positions of power in the western alliance are normal. If I were Putin, I would quietly and firmly let Netanyahu know that the next time Russian forces are threatened, Israeli forces will be attacked and forcefully. Maybe that's what Netanyahu wants.

The Russian Hmeymim airbase had lost contact with the crew of the Russian Il-20 military aircraft late on Monday during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia.

"Our reconnaissance Il-20 aircraft with a crew of 15 on board was carrying out a reconnaissance mission over the Idlib de-escalation zone to determine the locations of storage and collection of unmanned aerial vehicles that fly out of the zone and strike different areas of Syria," Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated at a meeting with senior military commanders.

Israeli F-16 jets attacked Syria under the cover of the Russian Il-20, assuming that the Syrian air defense forces would not act in this direction, Shoigu said.
"Without warning, more precisely, with a minute beforehand, Israel's informed us of a strike they were planning to conduct; they informed us that they were striking objects in Syria. And then they attacked," the defense minister stated.

He stressed that the Russian Il-20 was shot down "as a result of the response from the Syrian air defense systems to the Israeli forces’ attack."

Israel Unlikely to Fly Freely Over Syria After Il-20 Incident - Ex-Official

The Russian Defense Ministry said earlier on Tuesday that the Israeli military deliberately created a dangerous situation that resulted in the downing of the Il-20 by a missile launched by Syria's S-200 air defense system.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), in turn, stated that the Israeli jets were targeting a facility in Syria that contained "systems to manufacture accurate and lethal weapons" which could be sent "on behalf of Iran" to the Hezbollah movement in Lebanon.

A PICTURE INTO AMERICA'S FUTURE

No matter how many times America is warned about the upcoming collapse, the vast majority pretend that “It Can't Happen Here”. This past weekend a hurricane hit the coasts of North and South Carolina. Yes, it is tragic, but these storms do hit from time to time. What should alarm Americans is what happens during a time of chaos.

The subject article covers people breaking into a Family Dollar store and proceeding to loot it. Although this is one example, judging from similar incidents in past storms, it is typical. These storms only last a couple of days, yet panic and lawlessness sets in immediately. Imagine what would happen if a financial collapse comes? Imagine what would happen if America goes to hot war where all able bodied people are called to fight? If one wonders what would be the situation in our streets, just look at Wilmington.

We already have lawlessness in many American cities and that's when things are relatively good. If things get bad, potentially, all hell could break loose. Those who are prepared with food, water, weapons, medical supplies and other necessities, will come out the other end, but those who do not will be at the mercy of whatever government help is available and nothing else. If it never happens, it's still good insurance.

Police issued a warning about the activity on Saturday afternoon
The store's management reported the looting but asked police to stand down
Footage from a local news station shows dozens of people carrying whatever they could get their hands on out of the store
Police say multiple people could be identified in the video
They also asked the community to help in identifying the looters
Looters have broken into a Family Dollar store in Wilmington as the city on North Carolina's coast has become cut off by floodwaters following Hurricane Florence.
Police have arrested at least five people in connection with looting at the store on Greenfield Street on Saturday.
They first issued a warning about the activity that afternoon after the store's management reported it, but asked police to stand down.  
Footage from local news station WECT shows dozens of people carrying any items they could get their hands on out of the store and back to a public housing community called Houston Moore.  
While there were no members of law enforcement on the scene due to management's request, police enacted a curfew for the area from 5pm Saturday to 6am Sunday. 
They also said many of the alleged looters could be identified in WECT's video. They encouraged locals to report anyone they recognized in the footage.
 

WECT reporter Chelsea Donovan, who went to the scene with another journalist  to film the looting, said: 'When we came over the hill on Greenfield Street, you could just see people everywhere.'
In her news coverage Donovan gestures into the store's front entrance as she says: 'You can see here inside just a complete mess, people taking duffel bags and trash bags, now noticing we're here [and] running away from the camera.' A police vehicle with its siren blaring then pulls up as Donovan runs to the back entrance where other looters were attempting to make their escape.
'Hey guys, you know you're looting, right? You know you're stealing?' she says confronting the people coming out of the back.
One man with a plastic storage bin full of items appears to shrug at Donovan's confrontation. 


Both journalists retreated to their vehicle soon after as they felt the situation had gotten out of hand.
'I was concerned the whole time. I won't lie, but I was there to get the story,' Donovan said.  
It is unclear why Family Dollar management asked police not to intervene at the store, but the Wilmington Police Department has indicated offenders will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. 
'We're going to do everything we can to protect your property. This is not a response to the video. This has been our message [since] before the storm arrived,' the department said

 
On Sunday officials announced that Wilmington had officially become inaccessible by road from the rest of the state due to rising floodwaters surrounding the coastal city. It's now almost an island.
'Our roads are flooded,' county Board of Commissioners chairman Woody White said at a news conference. 'There is no access to Wilmington.' 
Restoring ground access to the area is now a top priority, but for the time being officials are making plans for how to reach the city by air.  
Large portions of Wilmington lost electricity over the weekend as thousands of residents were trapped in their homes due to downed trees and power lines in the wake of hurricane-turned-tropical-depression Florence, which has made its way inland. 
Rescue efforts in New Hanover County continued overnight Saturday and into Sunday as hundreds of residents were taken to shelters.
Local media reports that 'countless' homes have been damaged, but many homeowners who evacuated Wilmington ahead of the storm are now unable to get back to see how bad the situation actually is. 


While the city has been cut off from the outside, streets in Wilmington were busy with motorists on Sunday afternoon.
Victor Merlos was overjoyed to find a store open for business since he had about 20 relatives staying at his apartment, which still has power. He spent more than $500 on cereal, eggs, soft drinks and other necessities, plus beer.
'I have everything I need for my whole family,' Merlos said.
Police guarded the door of another store and only 10 people were allowed inside at a time. Dallas Perdue told The Associated Press he waited about two hours to get into the store to buy a few groceries.
Nearby, a Waffle House restaurant limited breakfast customers to one biscuit and one drink, all take-out, with the price of $2 per item. The line for gasoline at a Costco store stretched about a half-mile down a road.


The water utility, Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, had said Sunday that it had only a 48-hour supply of fuel to provide water. However, it said later in a news release that a source of fuel had been found and there was no immediate threat to service.
While Wilmington has survived its share of hurricanes, including Hurricane Fran in September 1996, the city of 120,000 has not suffered the amount of rain that fell from Florence, which has since weakened to a tropical depression.
Typically, it's a tourist city and home to EUE Screen Gems, a movie studio that helped give the city the nickname of 'Hollywood of the East,' although production has dropped since lawmakers ended film incentives. Television shows such as 'Dawson's Creek' and 'One Tree Hill' were filmed there, as well movies that include 'The Hunger Games' and 'Iron Man 3.'
It's the hometown of basketball great and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan and is known for its historic homes and its annual Azalea Festival.
But as the rain continued to fall, its officials were asking North Carolina Gov Roy Cooper for additional law enforcement, including the National Guard, White said. Some 465 people were rescued from cars and homes starting Saturday night and continuing until 9.30am Sunday he said.
Patients on oxygen and dialysis were being moved from New Hanover County Medical Center to Hoggard High School, a new shelter scheduled to open to the public at 5pm Sunday. It has room for 1,387 people.

IT'S NOT A COUP OR CIVIL WAR. IT'S A GANG WAR.

Many have been trying to make some sense out of all the incidents that have taken place in the U.S. over the past couple of years. The only thing that makes sense is there are no good guys struggling for control of the U.S. government. Both the Republicans and Democrats have been taken over. They have been taken over by criminals. On one side it is the leftists, otherwise known as the Democrats. On the other side it's the neocons, otherwise known as the Republicans.

I used the term “criminals” to describe those who, at the very top, control our government. The definition of “criminal” would be those who commit murder, theft, bribery, extortion, sex crimes, blackmail and purgery. Few would contest the facts that elements in our government have committed these crimes and more over the past century. We have had a President killed. We have had his brother killed. We had Martin Luther King killed. We had wars started based on lies. We have had so-called terrorist events perpetrated by government ops. And after all these and so many more, they use their friends in the media and government to tell and perpetuate the “official story”. No debate is permitted. No contrary views are permitted. When is the last time you heard any of our government masters publicly question any of the events I just named? Yes, they still cling to the discredited story that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination of John Kennedy.

It all makes sense. Why do our Presidential candidates constantly make promises, then when elected, break them? Why did Trump promise to end all of these wars and then increase them? Why did Obama promise to end all of these wars and then increase them? Why does blatant corruption on the part of so many highly placed officials go unpunished? It as simple as why the Bloods and the Crypts fight each other, but are still both, criminal gangs.

So here comes Trump. He did a good job of exposing a lot of the corruption present in our government. What he hasn't done is, remove it. He has aligned himself with the neocons and that has allowed himself to be inserted into the highest office in the land and therefore, present a threat to the leftists that had been in control. Neither one of these criminal gangs have any morals. They don't care about you or anything decent. The leftists want Trump out, the neocons want him in, as long as they can use him.

This is why, according to the subject article, our government is backing the Saudi effort to commit a holocaust in Yemen. It's O.K. to bomb school buses. It's O.K. to starve millions of people to death. Criminals don't care about that and if Hillary had won, it would be the same. It's a gang war and I have no idea who will win. I do know who will lose. It is the American people. One day soon our nation will be flushed down the toilet. Our only hope is that when things do really get bad, the people will realize all of these crooks have to go. A Soviet Union style collapse would be the best solution. That way, as demanded by millions in the streets, all of these crooks would be forced to leave the government. Then we would at least have a chance to rebuild.

The US is ready to defend Syria from a brutish assault launched by Syria’s own government and its allies – or so Washington wants you to believe. In the backdrop, Yemen continues to burn in silence.

On September 3, US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley – eloquent diplomat that she is –  retweeted a tweet from the warmonger in chief that is the US president, with the caption “All eyes on the actions of Assad, Russia and Iran in Idlib.”This is the same US administration who just facilitated the bombing of a school bus in Yemen, slaughtering at least 40 children in the process.

Maybe, just maybe, Nikki Haley should keep her eyes on herself.
If the world did direct its eyes to what is taking place in Yemen, they would know that the United Nations has just warnedof an “incalculable human cost” in the works, as the US and its allies press forward with an offensive to retake the Yemeni port city of Hodeida from the Houthi rebels.


That’s right. The US, currently waving its arms in despair about human rights abuses and chemical weapons attacks that have not even taken place in Syria yet, is supporting a major offensive of its own that will lead to a humanitarian crisis of monumental proportions.
Yemen, a country already deeply in crisis, relies on the port of Hodeida for at least 70 percent of its humanitarian aid. It therefore makes sense from a humanitarian perspective to turn its location into a major war zone, am I right?

The small minority of people who are inclined to care about innocent Yemenis need not fret though. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has just this week certified that the Saudi-led coalition is taking sufficient steps to protect civilians. According to Pompeo, the Gulf nations involved are “undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians.”

“They are taking steps, in the view of the US government and this administration, in the right direction,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told a briefing, according to Reuters. “We see them taking steps. Is it perfect? No absolutely not. Do we see them doing what they can to mitigate civilian casualties? Absolutely we do.”

Thank God – I was getting worried there for a second. The US-backed Saudi-led coalition may be killing children as if they were ants, but they are taking steps to mitigate the number of children they are killing at the same time.
A seven-page memo sent to Congress and obtained by the Intercept further confirmed Pompeo’s delusional thinking, as the memo called Saudi Arabia and the UAE “strong counterterrorism partners.” Never mind that just last month, the Associated Press reported the US and its allies were actually recruiting Al-Qaeda fighters to join the coalition.

Oops.
While the Trump administration is taking a horrifying and bloody war and taking it to new depths, the truth of the matter is that this war did not begin under Donald Trump. The war in Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation, fast becoming the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, was started by none other than peace-prize laureate Barack Obama himself.

But why did this war start, and why has the US continued to support it?
In an overlooked interview with the Real News’ Aaron Maté, Rob Malley, President of the International Crisis Group and former Special Assistant to President Obama, gave a disturbing glimpse into who actually pulls the strings on US foreign policy.
According to Malley:

“To try to understand what the Obama administration was about, and I’ve tried to- just to try to, to explain it to myself, to try to understand how we got to where we are, let’s not forget at the time we were in the middle of these negotiations with Iran, trying to reach a nuclear deal which was extremely unpopular with our traditional allies in the region, from Israel to Saudi Arabia to the UAE and others. And the Saudis came to us and said that they were about to intervene in Yemen, to attack the Houthis that had toppled the legitimate government of the internationally recognized government at the time. And they asked for our assistance…"

“So there was on the one hand a number of voices expressing concern about that. But on the other hand were many people saying the relationship with Saudi Arabia is almost at breaking point. They believe we’d betrayed their trust for a number of reasons. But Iran, Iran negotiating the Iran deal, or the negotiations over the Iran deal was one of them. We needed to protect that deal and make sure that we could get it done, because if we didn’t have a deal there was a risk of a war with Iran. And so I think the decision was made in the end by President Obama to say we’re going to be, to support parts of this war…”

Only a peace prize laureate could pull off a feat like that. But all joking aside, the human cost of the war in Yemen is nothing short of shameless.
On October 8, 2016, an aerial bombardment targeted a crowded funeral in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, the aftermath of which was aptly described as a “lake of blood.” According to the UN, more than 140 Yemenis were killed and at least 525 others were injured.

To date, the US-backed Saudi-led coalition has struck well over 100 hospitals, as well as wedding parties, refugeecamps, food trucks, factories, transport routes, agricultural land, residential areas, and schools, to name a few. Yes, you read that right. Yemen, with only 2.8 percent of its land being cultivated, is actively targeted by the US-backed coalition.According to Martha Mundy, professor emeritus at the London School of Economics, “to hit that small amount of agricultural land, you have to target it.”

Prior to spiralling into chaos, Yemen was already dependent on imports for 90 percent of its staple foods and almost all of its fuel and medical supplies. Putting aside the mass amount of violence that the US-backed coalition has enacted, the rest of Yemen’s population is suffering due to the Saudi-imposed blockade, which has put half the population at risk of starvation. According to the UN, over 462,000 children under the age of five are suffering from severe acute malnutrition.

This is done completely on purpose. At the end of August this year, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman, threatened that he would continue targeting women and children in Yemen and allegedly said that he wants to “leave a big impact on the consciousness of Yemeni generations.”
“We want their children, women and even their men to shiver whenever the name of Saudi Arabia is mentioned,” the Crown Prince reportedly said.
The idea, advanced by Pompeo and his cohorts at the State Department, that the coalition has taken steps to avoid civilian casualties is by all accounts, complete nonsense. As the New York Times openly acknowledged:

“The first problem was the ability of Saudi pilots, who were inexperienced in flying missions over Yemen and fearful of enemy ground fire. As a result, they flew at high altitudes to avoid the threat below. But flying high also reduced the accuracy of their bombing and increased civilian casualties," American officials said.

“American advisers suggested how the pilots could safely fly lower, among other tactics. But the airstrikes still landed on markets, homes, hospitals, factories and ports, and are responsible for the majority of the 3,000 civilian deaths during the yearlong war, according to the United Nations.”
In addition to supplying billions of dollars’ worth of arms to the Saudi kingdom, US personnel provide overwhelmingassistance to the Saudi-led coalition to help bring Yemen to its knees by sitting in the Saudi’s command and control center, providing lists of targets, refuelling planes, running intelligence missions, and so forth.

If Donald Trump is so concerned with migrants and refugees, perhaps he should stop creating them. If he really cares about ‘America first’ and making America great again, perhaps racking up notches to America’s war crime belt is not the way to go. Legal experts have already warned the US government that its complicity in these attacks can make them a co-belligerent in Saudi Arabia’s vast, extensive list of war crimes. This warning has fallen completely on deaf ears and has not helped at all in deterring the Trump administration from continuing some of Barack Obama’s worst policies; and even now the
US continues to shelter the Saudi-led coalition so that it can continue its bloodthirsty policies unabated.
Make no mistake, if the US pulled its support for Saudi Arabia, Yemen’s suffering could stop tomorrow.

Watch out for Assad though; I heard he was about to retake a Syrian city from an Al-Qaeda affiliate. Remember Al-Qaeda, the notorious terror group the US claimed was the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks? Apparently, the entire US government doesn’t, as it allies itself with Al-Qaeda in just about every battlefield that counts.

In the meantime, ordinary Yemenis continue to suffer by the millions. If you can absorb all of this and still believe the US is genuinely concerned about human rights abuses in places like Syria, then you probably deserve what’s to come next.

EXCUSE ME! ISN'T THAT TREASON?

The subject article covers U.S. troops training Maghawir al Thawra group in Idlib, Syria. This group has claimed to consist of former Syrian military and domestic rebels, but even if that were true it doesn't justify our alliance with them. In reality, they are mainly mercenaries fighting for money and the promise of power. The money, training and power has to come from the U.S.

Just 2 days ago, the mediawhores showered TV and radio with non-stop propaganda about the events of 911. Remember when they blamed Al-Qaeda for the attack and international terrorism? Now, many of these same people comprise a repackaged group with a different name.

So here's some questions: If the terrorists from the middle east were responsible for the attacks on the twin towers and building 7, why are we now giving them money, weapons and training? Why are our soldiers placed side by side with them? Do our government masters now expect our soldiers to give their lives in defending the Maghawir al Thawra group? Do our government masters expect the American people to send their children and their money to fight a war with Russia and possibly China over this? Isn't giving aid and comfort to the enemy the definition of treason? If so, who gave those orders to our troops?

AMMAN - A Syrian rebel commander said on Thursday rare military exercises with US marines in southern Syria sent a strong message to Russia and Iran that the Americans and the rebels intend to stay and confront any threats to their presence.
 

Colonel Muhanad al Talaa, commander of the Pentagon-backed Maghawir al Thawra group, told Reuters the eight days of drills that ended this week at the US military outpost in Tanf were the first such exercises with live-fire air and ground assault, involving hundreds of US troops and rebel fighters.
 
"These exercises have a big importance and have beefed up the defences of the area and raised the combat capabilities and morale and that of civilians in the area," Talaa told Reuters by phone from Tanf, near Syria's borders with Jordan and Iraq.

WHILE AMERICA WATCHES FOOTBALL, U.S. FORCES IN SYRIA PREPARE TO ENGAGE RUSSIA

Yesterday, we covered the absolute absurdity of the official government story on the events of 911. We stated that this was the beginning. In a paper entitled “Project for a New American Century” neocons wrote the plan for the conquering of several nations such as: Iraq, Iran, North Korea and Syria. Conquering those nations would make it necessary to also bring Libya, Afghanistan and Ukraine into their sphere of influence.

It is interesting that this paper was written before the events of 911. Indeed, the paper mentioned that it would be necessary to have a “Pearl Harbor” event in order to get popular support for these world wide wars.

So here we are 17 years later. We are involved in wars or rumors of wars in all of these nations. It should be noted that we haven't conquered any of them. The bleeding in real blood and now, trillions of dollars continues. What is their answer? More war. Except this time nations like Russia and China are accepting the fact that war with the U.S. may be unavoidable. If the U.S. is unable to totally subjugate 3rd world nations, is it reasonable to expect total victory against Russia and China, while continuing to fight the other wars?

As the U.S. sinks into the pit of unpayable debt, there may be other nations that will join those that are fighting the U.S. It's kind of like jackals that attack a lion that has been mortally wounded. Then again, we also have the prospect of nuclear war, but they don't care about that.

The Russian Aerospace Force will support Syrian troops if the Western coalition decides to launch attacks against Syria due to the provocation of the “chemical attacks” in Idlib province, according to Russian Senate International Committee member Oleg Morozov.
Earlier, the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria said filming of a provocation was being prepared alleging the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army in Idlib province. Morozov said:

“Even if [Western countries] start attacking Syria, in a chemical attack they will believe only those who are staging it.” But that does not mean that the coalition does not attack. Syrians will fight the militants above all else, but I do not rule out our Aerospace Force providing support, but only if it is the Western coalition who starts the attack,”
 
As the clashes around the jihadist-occupied province of Idlib in northern Syria are drawing closer, the US has made numerous predictions that Syrian President Bashar Assad is planning to use chemical weapons during combat, although they do not provide evidence and motives for such an event.
On Monday, the journalist and author of the book “Washington’s Long War on Syria,” Steve Gowans, said that “there is nothing new” on Western reports of chemical weapons being used in Idlib.

“This is an obvious attempt to manipulate public perception to justify some kind of intervention in Syria,” he said.
In addition, he noted that the US indicated that Assad was planning some kind of attack, but that detailed information on the possible attack is still missing.

On August 22, National Security adviser John Bolton called on the United States to respond “in a timely and appropriate manner to any proven use of chemical weapons at Idlib or anywhere in Syria.”

“We have tried to convey in the last few days the message that if there is a third use of chemical weapons the response will be much stronger ,” Bolton said on Monday.

In other words, the US is preparing for an intensification of its involvement in Syria, not a decrease, as Daesh (ISIS) and other Syrian jihadists are approaching defeat.

911: FALSE FLAG LEADING TO POLICE STATE AND UNLIMITED WAR

The subject article revisits all of the unanswered questions on the official government story on the events of 911. Today, on mainstream television, non-stop propaganda and sad, tear jerking stories dominate. No, you won't find anything remotely questioning their fairy tale and no, you won't hear any answers to the dozens of questions listed below.

If you confront any of our government masters or the mediawhores with questions, you can count on an immediate barrage of name calling concluding with a quick shutdown of your questions.

The thing Americans have to come to grip with is there are evil people who are capable of absolutely anything. Some of them live in your neighborhood. Some of them are in positions of power. Killing 3000 people in order to further their gains is nothing.

The Fatal Flaw in the 9/11 Coverup
After two and half years, with the whole world knowing that eight of the 19 names on the hijacker list are fraudulent, the FBI has made no attempt to substitute new names. And why is that? Because the identities of the hijackers were constructed with mostly stolen papers, for some of the patsies designed to take the heat. In any case, and whoever they were, there is no evidence they ever got on the planes.

If you believe that, I have a watch to sell you.

9/11 and Anthrax: Framing Arabs
The letters with the Anthrax came from inside the United States. Congress got their Anthrax letters just in time for the vote on the disingenuously named USA Patriot Act (aka the anti-terror bill) which the terrorized Senators voted into law without bothering to read. How convenient for the bill's sponsors that there was a terror attack on the Congress just when Congress was about to vote on the anti-terror bill.
The Hidden Anthrax Suspect
Documents from the inquiry show that one unauthorized person who was observed entering the lab building at night was Langford's predecessor, Lt. Col. Philip Zack, who at the time no longer worked at Fort Detrick. A surveillance camera recorded Zack being let in at 8:40 p.m. on Jan. 23, 1992, apparently by Dr. Marian Rippy, a lab pathologist and close friend of Zack's, according to a report filed by a security guard.

What were these scientists able to do? Maybe blow the whistle if an artificially created disease was about to be used in a manner those who created it did not approve of. Regardless of the exact reason, there does seem to be a clear pattern of targeted microbiologists, and paired with it, an obvious government disinterest in the matter. I leave it to you to figure out why.

Is 'Al Qaeda' the Modern Incarnation of 'Emmanuel Goldstein'?
The US government needed a new enemy. PNAC needed a new Pearl Harbor. On 9/11 they both got their wishes. Complete coincidence?
The Point of No Return

As Bush himself said, you are either with him or against him, and unless you are actively against him and his war machine, then he wins by default. Unless you stop them now, sooner or later, Bush and the NeoCons will succeed in turning this nation into the 21st century version of Nazi Germany, powered by fanatics so afraid to look in a mirror that they will inflict any pain on any people, rather than do so.

U.S. THREATENS INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT

We all knew John Bolton was insane. His actions over many years proved that. So, let's give him a high position of power in the U.S. government. Now he is threatening the International Criminal Court with sanctions if they dare to investigate war crimes on the part of the U.S. or Israel.

So let's get this straight. If a nation we don't like commits a war crime, we are fine with the ICC investigating, but if Israel guns down unarmed men, women and children in their own land, investigating is not fine. Just this past weekend U.S. F15's dropped phosphorus on Syria. Never mind the fact that this is banned by international agreement. Our nation signed this agreement. We are in Syria illegally and during that time have bombed hospitals and schools. I guess that's O.K.

Now crazy Bolton says if the ICC investigates any of the crimes we or Israel have committed, we will put sanctions on any nation supporting the ICC investigation. Is Bolton and his ilk, crazy enough to start war with the whole world? I guess we actually don't know the extent of his and others' insanity.

The US will fight back using any means necessary if the International Criminal Court ever dares to probe an American or Israeli, and will punish those who cooperates with war-crime investigations, John Bolton is set to announce.

“The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court,” Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, is expected to say, according to a draft speech seen by Reuters. “We will not cooperate with the ICC. We will provide no assistance to the ICC. We will not join the ICC. We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead to us.”

The vigorous speech, titled ‘Protecting American Constitutionalism and Sovereignty from International Threats,’ according to the Washington Post, will be delivered to a conservative group in Washington on Monday.
 
Turkey vows to bring Israel to ICC over Gaza carnage, Tel Aviv says Ankara will be there first
The Trump administration will retaliate if the ICC proceeds with a formal investigation into alleged war crimes committed by US forces in Afghanistan. The ICC is considering an official probe after it received 1.17 million allegations from Afghan citizens of atrocities at the hands of the Taliban, local security forces and warlords, as well as the US-led coalition.

In addition, Bolton will vow to protect all American allies from similar probes – in particular Israel, which is being accused of perpetrating war crimes against Palestinian civilians. “The United States will always stand with our friend and ally, Israel,”says Bolton's draft text.
The potential US sanctions against judges, prosecutors and those who cooperate with such a probe might include banning those individuals from entering the US, freezing their assets, and trying them in American courts.

The United States (as well as Russia) signed but never ratified the 2002 Rome Treaty that established the International Criminal Court. The body has since been widely criticized as a “political tool,” especially after The Hague-based court failed to examine NATO’s illegal intervention and bombings of Belgrade in the case of the former Yugoslavia, instead only going after former president Slobodan Milosevic. Nevertheless, the US exerts some influence over the court via European governments, which are dominant in the administration of the ICC. So, even if the ICC were to launch a probe, let alone find US forces guilty of war crimes, it is doubtful that Washington would take any notice of such rulings.

AS AMERICA GOES BROKE, TAXPAYERS SADDLED WITH BILLIONS FOR STADIUMS

The statistics pour in almost every day. Student debt is an unpayable 1 ½ trillion dollars. Our federal government debt is officially about 21 trillion dollars and may actually be as much as 200 trillion dollars. States like Illinois, California and New Jersey are flirting with bankruptcy while defaults on auto loans and home loans are soaring.

So what are our government masters doing about this? From coast to coast and cities both large and small, are taxing you billions of dollars to build sports areas and stadiums. Yes, these palaces which the average person cannot even afford to attend, are being erected for billionaire owners, paying millions to players and you are required to pay for it.

Meanwhile, cities like New Orleans, still haven't recovered from hurricane Katrina. Large areas of the city remain in ruins. New Jersey is on the verge of bankruptcy and is unable to fund basic educational needs. Chicago has become a modern day shooting gallery with Illinois unable to pay their bills.

This is a final sign of collapse. The Romans referred to this as “bread and circus's”. Never mind the fact that we don't have decent healthcare or schools or road and bridge repair. We have beautiful palaces to watch full grown men chase a ball around.

There’s a lot of money in the world of sports. The athletes are rich, so are the owners, and the teams are worth fortunes.
Despite all that, when teams need new stadiums, the owners cry poor. They make the public pay, or they threaten to move. That’s why there are so many taxpayer-funded stadiums in the United States.

Professional sports teams are raking in the money, but taxpayer money in these 15 cities paid for new billion-dollar stadiums. Georgia State University tracks the trends and crunches the numbers to find out which cities have taxpayers spending the most on sports stadiums.

15. Cobb County, Ga.

Taxpayer money: $300 million
Stadium: SunTrust Park
Team: Atlanta Braves

The Braves moved into a stadium after the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. They moved out to Cobb County, which is about 13 miles from the city, after the 2016 season. Taxpayers in Cobb County ponied up for a brand new stadium, and their $300 million bill is a conservative estimate. Some experts believe taxpayers might have to shell out $400 million for the stadium.

Next: A big city with an expensive stadium.
14. Brooklyn, N.Y.
The Brooklyn Nets play at the Barclays Center, which cost taxpayers a lot of money. | Lintao Zhang/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $305 million
Stadium: Barclays Center
Teams: Brooklyn Nets, New York Islanders
When the Barclays Center opened in 2012, it lured the Nets from New Jersey and the Islanders from suburban Long Island. Less than six years later, the Islanders are hunting for a new home and the taxpayers are still on the hook for more than $300 million.

Next: Bad financial forecasting has taxpayers on the hook for a hockey haven.
13. Pittsburgh

Taxpayer money: $311 million
Stadium: PPG Paints Arena
Team: Pittsburgh Penguins
A bit of bad financial forecasting fostered a dismal deal for Pittsburgh taxpayers. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the interest rate on variable rate bonds spiked, and so the taxpayer burden also spiked to more than $300 million for a hockey arena.

Next: More than 40% of this city’s debt pays for sports venues.
12. Glendale, Ariz.

Taxpayer money: $312 million
Stadium: University of Phoenix Stadium
Team: Arizona Cardinals
Sure, the burden on Glendale’s taxpayers for their football stadium doesn’t look too bad. After all, it’s outside the top 10 on our list. However, Americans for Tax Reform reports more than 40% of Glendale’s debt is from its sports complexes, of which University of Phoenix is the largest and most expensive.

Next: An expensive renovation
11. New Orleans
Saints fans are the ones paying for Superdome upgrades. | Ronald Martinez/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $321 million
Stadium: Mercedes-Benz Superdome
Team: New Orleans Saints
New Orleans and the Saints deserve at least a little bit of credit. Instead of waiting for the Superdome to grow antiquated, they both jumped ahead of the curve and proposed major renovations instead. Yet the taxpayers are still on the hook for $321 million, according to the Georgia State University data.

Next: It could be worse for this city, and it still might be.
10. Atlanta

Atlanta taxpayers will be paying for Mercedes-Benz Stadium for a long time. | Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $343 million
Stadiums: Philips Arena, Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Team: Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Falcons
With the Atlanta Braves moving out to the suburbs, the city didn’t have to pay for upgrades or a new baseball stadium. Score one for the city. However, the taxpayers are paying for upgrades to Philips Arena and a brand new football stadium for the Falcons. A conservative estimate has the public is paying $200 million for Mercedes-Benz Stadium, but CityLab reports the cost might be more like $600 million. The higher total would move Atlanta firmly into the top 5.

Next: Almost $400 million in public money for an upgrade.
9. Chicago

Taxpayer money: $387 million
Stadium: Soldier Field
Team: Chicago Bears
When the Chicago Bears needed to renovate Soldier Field, they passed the final bill to the taxpayers. The upgrade cost $587 million, and public money paid for the majority of it. According to The Street, $387 million in public money paid for the construction.

Next: Where the taxpayers funded 90% of a new arena.
8. Orlando
Taxpayer money: $430 million
Stadium: Amway Center
Team: Orlando Magic
When the Magic started hemorrhaging money, they demanded a new stadium and threatened to move if they didn’t get it. Team officials claimed they needed a new home in order to survive. Orlando initially balked, but it eventually caved and foisted 90% of the bill on the taxpayers.
Next: A city billing the taxpayers for a twofer.

7. Kansas City, Mo.
Kansas City taxpayers voted in favor of spending on Arrowhead Stadium upgrades. | Jamie Squire/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $475 million
Stadiums: Arrowhead Stadium, Kauffman Stadium
Teams: Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals
Give Kansas City some credit for being up front. Looking to update its two pro sports stadiums, the city let the taxpayers vote on the idea. The taxpayers said yes, so even though they’re on the hook for $475 million, at least they were the ones who decided to spend the money.

Next: Taking the good with the bad.
6. Miami
[MIAMI, FL - JUNE 12: A general view of the outfield with the roof and windows open at Marlins Park as the Marlins taking on the Boston Red Sox on June 12, 2012 in Miami, Florida.]

Taxpayer money: $488 million
Stadium: Marlins Park
Team: Miami Marlins
The Marlins played in a football stadium north of the city before moving to their new downtown stadium in 2012. On the one hand, being closer to the city is better for the fans. On the other hand, the taxpayers are on the hook for one of the worst and most expensive stadiums in the U.S.

Next: Things could have been worse.
5. Indianapolis
[Lucas Oil Stadium]

Taxpayer money: $620 million
Stadium: Lucas Oil Stadium
Team: Indianapolis Colts
This may be one of the best places to watch an NFL game, but that’s probably not much consolation for the folks in Indy. The taxpayers got saddled with 86% of the bill for one of the most expensive stadiums in the United States. However, it could have been worse. Lucas Oil Stadium, with a total cost of $720 million, opened before billion-dollar football stadiums were commonplace.

Next: This is no mirage
4. Las Vegas
Of course Raiders owner Mark Davis is happy — Las Vegs taxpayers are spending $750 million on his new stadium. | Ethan Miller/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $750 million
Stadium: Las Vegas Stadium
Team: Las Vegas Raiders
The stadium that will house the NFL’s Raiders started as just a hole in the ground, but the public debt is no mirage. The stadium could cost nearly $2 billion, and even though the taxpayers are on the hook for less than half the cost it still adds up to $750 million.

Next: Did you ever think you’d see a soccer stadium make this list?
3. Washington, D.C.
Taxpayers are on the hook for 100% of the cost of Nationals Park. | Mitchell Layton/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $843 million
Stadiums: Audi Field, Nationals Park
Teams: D.C. United, Washington Nationals
Audi Field is the home for soccer team D.C. United. Their $300 million stadium is the most expensive soccer-specific stadium in the United States, and the taxpayers are on the hook for half of the cost. But it’s Nationals Park that really inflates the bill. The stadium cost $693 million to build, and the public is shouldering the entire burden.

Next: One city. Two stadiums. Millions in public money.
2. Minneapolis
U.S. Bank Stadium is very reflective — and very expensive for the taxpayers. | Hannah Foslien/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $854 million
Stadiums: Target Field, U.S. Bank Stadium
Teams: Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Vikings
When Minneapolis closed the Metrodome it forced the Twins and Vikings to find new homes. Guess who paid for the new stadiums? If you guessed the taxpayers, give yourself a star.
Without getting to vote on the issue, the public ponied up $356 million for Target Field and $498 million for U.S. Bank Stadium. Those are two bad deals, but still $90 million away from the top spot.

Next: A relatively small city with a big tax bill.
1. Arlington, Texas
[AT&T Stadium]
AT&T Stadium and a new baseball stadium are going to cost Arlington taxpayers close to $950 million. | Christian Petersen/Getty Images
Taxpayer money: $944 million
Stadiums: Arlington Ballpark, AT&T Stadium
Teams: Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys
With a close to 400,000 people, Arlington isn’t a small city. Compared to neighbors Dallas and Fort Worth, however, it’s on the small side. Despite its size, Arlington is on the hook for two very expensive stadiums.
The taxpayers voted yes to pay for half of the Texas Rangers’ new $1 billion dollar stadium, which should open in 2021. Apparently, the Arlington public loves paying for stadiums. They also paid $444 million for the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, so not only is it one of the most expensive NFL tickets, it’s one of the most expensive stadiums for the taxpayers.

Next: Now comes the scary part.
The numbers are staggering and sad
Add up all those millions of dollars we just finished discussing, and you end up with more than $7.5 billion. And that’s just when you count the 15 cities where taxpayers have the biggest burdens. Almost every city with a professional sports teams has taxpayers shelling out to build or renovate stadiums.
Detroit’s public is paying $285 million for its new hockey and basketball arena. Sacramento is paying $255 million for a new home for the NBA’s Kings. Milwaukee taxpayers are shelling out $250 million for a new arena for the NBA’s Bucks.

PEOPLE TAKING STATINS don't receive any benefit, study finds.


Isn't it amazing that the pharmaceutical industry keeps coming out with these “miracle drugs”, then after a few years they get sued, then studies show that the drugs are ineffective and many times harmful.


I know many people who are taking statins. Doctors use the, now discredited, study showing the harmful effects of cholesterol as the justification. More recent studies are showing there is very little correlation between cholesterol and heart disease. Never mind that. Take these statin drugs and artificially lower your cholesterol.


There are also studies showing that long term use of statins may damage your liver. So, to sum up ---- According to the recent study, statins have no benefit whatsoever, and may wreck your liver. Where do I sign up?

Giving statins to the healthy elderly could be a waste of time, a major study claims.
The research, involving 47,000 over-75s, found no evidence that they make any difference to low-risk patients.
Scientists said their results 'do not support the widespread use of statins' in this group. 

The news threatens to inflame the row about the pros and cons of the drugs, which reduce levels of so-called 'bad' cholesterol to prevent heart disease.
Since 2014, all over-75s in Britain have been eligible to take statins – which cost no more than £20 a year – even if they are in perfect health. 
[Giving statins to the healthy elderly could be a waste of time, a major study claims]

Giving statins to the healthy elderly could be a waste of time, a major study claims
This approach – known as primary prevention – means anyone with a 10 per cent chance of getting heart disease within ten years should have the medication. 

The just-in-case strategy means all over-75s, most over-60s and some as young as 30 – are eligible for the pills.
Dr Chris Steele talks about the ongoing debate on using statins

Experts agree that statins are lifesavers for two million people who have heart disease or diabetes – particularly those who have already had a heart attack or a stroke. 

But many doctors question what they call the 'over-medicalisation' of the further ten million healthy people who are eligible for statins based on the likelihood that they might become ill. 

Of the total of 12million eligible, many are reluctant to take a pill for no obvious reason. As a result, only around six million agree to take the drugs.

Professor Colin Baigent (pictured), of the University of Oxford, has criticised the way the study was designed
The latest findings, published in the British Medical Journal, suggest most elderly people do not actually benefit from the pills. 
Spanish scientists, led by the Catalan Institute of Health and the University of Girona, tracked 46,864 people over 75.
The participants – none of whom had heart disease at the beginning of the study – were monitored for six years.
For most, the scientists found no evidence that use of statins resulted in a reduction in cardiovascular disease or deaths.
The only people who benefited were those with type 2 diabetes aged 75 to 84, for whom the risk of cardiovascular disease went down by 24 per cent and the risk they would die during the study fell by 16 per cent. 

But even for this group, the protective effect fell after 85 and disappeared by the age of 90. 
The researchers, led by Dr Rafel Ramos, said statin use for the elderly had increased around the world despite a lack of evidence for any benefit, even though the elderly are more prone to side-effects.

The report concluded: 'These results do not support the widespread use of statins in old populations, but do support treatment in those with type 2 diabetes younger than 85.' 

But Professor Colin Baigent, of the University of Oxford, criticised the way the study was designed, adding: 'The problem with this type of study, which used routine health records, is that it is a very unreliable way to determine the effects of statins on the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
'The only suitable method is a clinical trial where people are allocated to a statin or to no statin entirely at random.'

WE'RE STILL IN SYRIA AND THAT MUCH CLOSER TO WORLD WAR 3

The subject article covers many of the Russian assets in the middle east. There is enough fire power there to sink every ship in the U.S. Navy. There are enough U.S. assets in the middle east to sink all of the ships in the Russian navy. Of course if either of these scenarios come to fruition, we can assume an all out attack on both nations will be on. Actually, it won't take the sinking of either navy to do it. Just sinking a couple of ships will probably do it.

I've written about this a lot. There is no reason whatsoever, for the U.S. to be in Syria. There is no reason whatsoever, for the U.S. to risk world war 3 in order to stop Russia from assisting the Syrian government in the retaking of their own territory--- yet, here we are.

The insaniacs may be thinking they can play this “brinkmanship” game forever. All of the major wars of the past were started on this false premise. Then again, maybe the insaniacs think they can win a nuclear war. I know. It's nuts, but that's why they are insaniacs. We, on the other hand, live in the real world. It's our money and our blood at stake. If the missiles fly and the bombs drop, it's our cities and neighborhoods that will be destroyed. There are many that think this is impossible. Again, that was the thinking in other nations before they saw the “missiles fly” and the “bombs drop”.

I wish I had an easy solution to prevent, what seems to be, inevitable. Our postal service used to print “pray for peace” on canceled postage. Maybe it's time to revisit that.

A very good piece by Alastair Crooke on the situation around Syria and US, UK and other "democracies" preparing yet another false flag using, what else is new, own SOBs in a form of all kinds of Al-Qaeda-derived scum.
Crooke makes this observation:

Evidently, Russia takes this US threat seriously (it has deployed 20 naval vessels into the E. Mediterranean, off Syria).  And Iran evidently takes the threat seriously, too. The Iranian Defence Minister on Sunday made a rapid unscheduled visit to Damascus in order to agree a tri-partite (Russia, Syria Iran) response to any US attack on Syria.

Russia does take this threat very seriously and positioned her naval task force in a form of a screen in case of expected and highly likely likely salvo of TLAMs and, possibly, depending on the circumstances attempts of carrier aviation launching their own stand-off munitions.

Moreover, Russian naval exercises off Syria are more than just Fleet-In-Being demonstration of a naval force with a significant salvo--as such this force will have issues surviving when pitted against much superior US Navy's one or two Carrier Battle Groups. But here is the REAL build-up and there is nothing secret about it.

1. Russian naval task force operates still under significant and highly integrated AD "umbrella" with  land-based S-400 and S-300 in Syria and warning system, which includes air-space assets, such as satellite and A-50 reconnaissance capabilities being part of that. 

2. Nobody knows the exact number of submarines in the area, but I would guess that Russian subs are represented in the area by more than just two, however good, newest SSKs of pr. 636. 

3. Finally ground assets. Russia does have her own "aircraft carrier" in the area and its name is Khmeimim Air Base. I don't have the current number of the SU-27SM, SU-30SM and SU-35Ss available there, but even the regiment (24 aircraft) of such fighters is more than enough to mitigate any advantage a single carrier air-wing might present in case loonies in Washington decide to proceed with their strikes.

4. And last but not least--one can try to track (good luck with that) those MiG-31Ks armed with Kinzhals and TU-22s with X-32s, which I am sure do have all necessary data and, most likely some of them are already on immediate alert (combat watch--боевое дежурство), just in case. 

And here is the main point. Crooke asks:
Who will blink first?  Netanyahu? Or will Trump surface from his domestic tribulations sufficiently, to take notice and to say ‘no’?
At this stage this whole thing is, indeed, reduced to purely DJT's "relation" with  his "team" he, incidentally, assembled himself (speaks volumes about him, doesn't it?); and this "team" is a collection of a complete, primarily neocon, nutjobs such as Bolton and which is utterly unqualified for any competent military or political assessment, once Mattis is excluded from the decision process. So, this brings fore an inevitable conclusion that Trump as a person is not treaty-worthy--basically whatever he says is a baloney and he is, indeed, as both Crooke and Lawrence Wilkersonpoint out is now a complete neocon asset. A defining feature of neocons is their lack of any situational awareness and even rudimentary military competence. Trump may not even know that somebody has to blink and he, certainly, has zero military background (where's Jimmy Carter when you need one). 

So, what's left? I don't know to what degree this whole situation could be called a 'Suez' Event but it is surely one of many events demonstrating a complete mess within American political power-class in general and Trump Administration in particular.  Depending on the outcome of this whole "strike", granted it doesn't escalate into the serious clash between Russian and US forces, I think Russia will reconsider and will provide latest S-300s to Syrian Armed Forces--it is about time anyway. So, what is it going to be Mr. President Donald J. Trump--"peace on Earth", you so eloquently called for when you needed electoral votes in 2016, or Earth in pieces?  

UPDATE: One of our participants, Evald, graciously allowed me to use his excellent graphics dealing with Russian forces and means in and around Syria, so I attach it here since it gives a very good spatial feel of the situation. Key term in all this is interaction (Vzaimodeistvie) of heterogeneous forces.

3RD LEADING KILLER OF AMERICANS: MEDICAL ERROR

Knowing the fact that medical error results in the death of over 250,000 Americans every year should lead us all to avoid doctors and hospitals. Well, it's not that simple. If one has a trauma like, a heart attack or accident, there is no option but to seek immediate help from medical professionals, but there are a few things that one can do to make sure you aren't victimized by incompetence or dangerous treatments.

First, there is no substitute from doing your own research. Once a patient is stabilized, you can then monitor every procedure. What are the drugs being prescribed? How about surgeries? Is everyone clean? Has the stethoscope been treated before touching the patient?

Many are reluctant to ask questions. Knowing that 1 quarter of a million people under the care of medical professionals, will die this year, may help in removing that reluctance. I remember, visiting my mother in a nursing home several years ago, that she was routinely being given antibiotics. When questioning the nurse as to whether she had an infection requiring that medication, the nurse became indignant. Too bad. There was no need and using antibiotics routinely can cause dangerous complications, let alone being unnecessary. Also, what about those dangerous vaccines?

So the choice is ours. We can do our homework, ask questions and speak up, or join the 250,000.

Bruce                                           New World Order News
  


"My little angel" is how Christopher Jerry describes his daughter Emily.
At just a year and a half, Emily was diagnosed with a massive abdominal tumor and endured numerous surgeries and rigorous chemotherapy before finally being declared cancer-free. But just to be sure, doctors encouraged Chris and his wife to continue with Emily's last scheduled chemotherapy session, a three-day treatment that would begin on her second birthday.

On the morning of her final day of treatment, a pharmacy technician prepared the intravenous bag, filling it with more than 20 times the recommended dose of sodium chloride. Within hours Emily was on life support and declared brain dead.
Three days later she was gone.

Sadly, Emily's case is not unique. According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.

Other studies report much higher figures, claiming the number of deaths from medical error to be as high as 440,000. The reason for the discrepancy is that physicians, funeral directors, coroners and medical examiners rarely note on death certificates the human errors and system failures involved. Yet death certificates are what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention rely on to post statistics for deaths nationwide.

The authors of the Johns Hopkins study, led by Dr. Martin Makary of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, have appealed to the CDC to change the way in which it collects data from death certificates. To date, no changes have been made, Makary said.
'
The system is to blame'
Makary defines a death due to medical error as one that is caused by inadequately skilled staff, error in judgment or care, a system defect or a preventable adverse effect. This includes computer breakdowns, mix-ups with the doses or types of medications administered to patients and surgical complications that go undiagnosed.

"Currently the CDC uses a deaths collection system that only tallies causes of death occurring from diseases, morbid conditions, and injuries," Makary stated in a letter urging the CDC to change the way it collects the nation's vital health statistics.

"It's the system more than the individuals that is to blame," Makary said. The U.S. patient-care study, which was released in 2016, explored death-rate data for eight consecutive years. The researchers discovered that based on a total of 35,416,020 hospitalizations, there was a pooled incidence rate of 251,454 deaths per year — or about 9.5 percent of all deaths — that stemmed from medical error.

Now, two years later, Makary said he hasn't seen the needle move much.
"Medical-care workers are dedicated, caring people," said Chris Jerry, "but they're human. And human beings make mistakes." According to him, the day Emily was given her fatal dose, the hospital pharmacy was short-staffed, the pharmacy computer was not properly working, and there was a backlog of physician orders.

Afterward Chris said he discovered that pharmacy technicians, rather than well-trained and educated pharmacists, are compounding nearly all of the IV medications for patients. And many states have no requirements, or proof of competency, for these pharmacy technicians.

Medical errors, one of the leading causes of death  8:59 AM ET Thu, 5 May 2016 | 00:34
To seek greater safeguards for patients, Chris founded the Emily Jerry Foundation in 2008. EJF focuses primarily on medication safety and better training for pharmacy technicians, as well as backup procedures that will improve the health-care system. Last year he unveiled the Emily Jerry Foundation's National Pharmacy Technician Initiative, an interactive scorecard to make the public aware of unsafe pharmacy practices in the United States. He also travels throughout the country, speaking out about key patient safety-related issues and best practices proven to minimize the "human error" component of medicine.
Any new tools 'will be a game changer'
Pascal Metrics, based in Washington, D.C., designs ways to increase patient safety and improve clinical reliability at health organizations.
Pascal's chief medical information officer, Dr. David Classen, is also associate professor of medicine at the University of Utah and an active consultant in infectious diseases at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City. He admits there are problems: "The system of care is fragmented," he said. "Any tools that enable patients to manage their health-care needs will be a game changer."
To improve the safety of medication use, Classen developed and implemented a computerized physician order-entry program at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City. "Harnessing health information technology through the use of electronic health records of hospitalized and ambulatory patients is essential," he said.
Many hospitals, for their part, are seeking to keep pace with increasingly available technology to improve patient safety. Kim Lanyon, a senior ICU nurse at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut, said all electronic records there are double-checked, and fail-safe devices are in place."
At Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Dr. Vicki LoPatchin oversees a Good Catch Award, given to medical personnel who identify potential or existing errors related to their patients' care. Similarly, most physicians' offices now keep records electronically, as well as recording conversations among doctors, nurses and their patients in order to make certain there is clarity and that no mistakes result.

Even so, Makary said ordinary complications can occur, especially from unneeded medical care. According to him, "Twenty percent of all medical procedures may be unnecessary." He faults also the overprescription of medication following surgery, particularly opioids.
Doctors, he said, have been encouraged by drug companies, sometimes through cash payments, to "promote" their products, as revealed by the website Dollars for Docs.
What patients can do to protect themselves
According to Dr. John James, a patient-safety advocate and author of A Sea of Broken Hearts: Patient Rights in a Dangerous, Profit-Driven Health Care System, patients need to take charge. "There needs to be a balance between the provider community and the patients. It is not an even relationship at all."
In 2002 James lost his 19-year-old son after he collapsed while running. He had been diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia by a cardiologist a few weeks prior and was released from the hospital with instructions not to drive for 24 hours.
"His death certificate said he died of a heart arrhythmia," he said, but my son really died as a result of "uninformed, careless, and unethical care by cardiologists." He explained: "If you have a patient with heart arrhythmias of a certain level and low potassium, you need to replace the potassium, and they did not. And they didn't tell him he shouldn't go back to running." Communication errors, he said, are "unfortunately very common."

In 2014 James retired early to devote his life to improving patient safety. His mission: to teach people how to be empowered patients. He has created a patient bill of rights, which he's been pushing to become federal law. Yet so far he said his letters to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have gone unanswered.

"Makary has a lot of courage," James said. "A lot of the retired doctors will tell you it's a mess and it's terrible. But for a young physician to come out and say what he did, that's pretty bold. Makary is a brave guy."

James' site, Patient Safety America, lists the three levels in which patients can protect themselves. These include being a wise consumer of health care by demanding quality, cost-effective care for yourself and those you love; by participating in patient-safety leadership through boards, panels and commissions that implement policy and laws; and by pushing for laws that favor safer care, transparency and accountability.
"Too often, the health-care system silences people around a problem."-Dr. Martin Makary, surgical oncologist and chief of the Johns Hopkins Islet Transplant Center

Here are some other ways patients can be vigilant right now:
Ask questions. Gain as much insight as you can from your health-care provider. Ask about the benefits, side effects and disadvantages of a recommended medication or procedure. Use social media to learn more about the patient's own condition, as well as those medications and procedures for which they were prescribed.

Seek a second opinion. If the situation warrants or if uncertainties exist, get a second opinion from another doctor: A good doctor will welcome confirmation of his diagnosis and resist any efforts to discourage the patient from learning more — or what Makary calls, "attempts to gag the patient."
"Too often," he said, "the health-care system silences people around a problem." Why? Many doctors are reluctant to speculate, but some admit the answers range from simple ego to losing a patient to another doctor they trust more.

Bring along an advocate. Sometimes it's hard to process all the information by yourself. Bring a family member or a friend to your appointment — someone who can understand the information and suggestions given and ask questions.

Ilene Corina, president and founder of the Pulse Center for Patient Safety Education & Advocacy, based in Wantagh, New York, urges both the patient and their advocate to be "respectful but assertive" in seeking answers to the questions they may have. In some cases, she recommends a "designated medication manager" to be a safety check on the advice the care provider gives.

Download an app. By having your medical information literally in the palm of your hand, you can work as a team with your doctor to cut your risk for medical errors. Health-care apps can be simple or complex, and depending on your age and condition, you can manage your well-being, medications and more.

A DANGEROUS QUOTE FROM MENACHEM BEGIN

For those who don't know, Menachem Begin was a Prime Minister of Israel. The remarks from a speech made by Begin should send shivers up and down the spines of those who reject racism. Yes, the Israelis deny its' accuracy, but there are many, many quotes from prominent Israelis that say the same things.

Let me say again, this does not represent the views of all Israelis. I would hope that the majority of Israelis reject this, but just like the U.S., those in power reject the views and policies of those they claim to represent.

Our government should not support those in control of governments that view themselves superior on the basis of their birth or skin color. That includes South Africa, Zimbabwe and Israel. We can all agree that those who are black and those who are Jewish are entitled to be treated equally with anyone else and that goes both ways. There is nothing better to reinforce that than to cut off the money to those who view themselves superior by birth.

 A DANGEROUS QUOTE FROM MENACHEM BEGIN

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."

WORLD WAR 3 UPDATE: RUSSIA WARNS U.S. “NOT TO PLAY WITH FIRE”

What's the next step? Sanity or insanity? One smart thing that Russia has done is to expose the fraud behind the possible upcoming gas attack. Numerous articles and reports have come out showing the White Helmets are bringing in chemical weapons into Idlib province in Syria. That area is controlled by the terrorists under the protection of the U.S.

Isn't it interesting that, all of a sudden, the U.S. has been making threats against the Syrian government. They are accusing Syria of planning a gas attack against civilians in Idlib. Does anyone out there think that there are as many holes as Swiss cheese in this story? First of all, the U.S. controls that area. If Gas is used there, it would have to be the U.S. or their allies. Second, why would Assad use gas? After they retake Idlib, don't they have troops on the ground? Wouldn't they be affected by the poison? Also, how does poisoning civilians, help in a military operation?

Then the U.S. says they are going to attack the Assad government. Recently, they are moving a large number of naval vessels within striking distance of Syria, except this time the Russians are doing the same. Putin has to answer to his people too. I'm sure they are pressuring him to respond or even get involved to prevent, an attack on Syria. Why are we there again?

Bruce                                      New World Order News



Russia’s foreign minister is the latest official to warn the US against using a possible chemical weapons provocation to justify a new strike against Syrian forces. He said Moscow warned the West not to play with fire in Syria.

Sergey Lavrov reiterated the warning that a staged chemical weapons attack in Syria’s Idlib province may trigger a US-led attack on the forces loyal to Damascus.

“A new provocation is being prepared by the West to hamper the anti-terrorist operation in Idlib,” Lavrov said during a joint media conference with his Syrian counterpart, Walid Muallem. “We have facts on the table and have issued a strong warning to our Western partners through our Defense Ministry and our Foreign Ministry not to play with fire.”

[Advancing Syrian troops hoist the national flag. © Mikhail Alaeddin] Idlib to become Syria's final battle with terrorists… if the West stays out of it
Earlier, the Russian military reported that a group of militants in Syria was preparing a provocation, in which chlorine gas would be used to frame the Syrian government forces. The incident would be used by the US and its allies to justify a new attack against the country, similar to what happened in April, according to the claim.

Amid international tensions, Russia has launched a massive naval exercise in the Mediterranean Sea, which involves 25 ships and 30 aircraft, including Tu-160 strategic bombers.

The US earlier stated that it would retaliate to a possible a chemical attack by the Syrian government, using more firepower than it did in April. The previous tripartite strike by the US, the UK and France targeted what they called sites involved in chemical weapons research. It came in response to an alleged use of an improvised chlorine bomb against a militant-held area. Russia insists that the incident had been staged with the goal of triggering the Western response.

MORE ON THE “HERO” JOHN McCAIN

I didn't want to publish more on McCain. He is gone and we have enough to deal with in the remaining psychopaths that populate our government, but since the mediawhores and leftists insist on calling McCain a hero, I am compelled to respond.

The Wayne Madsen report covers McCain's antics aboard the USS Forestal and in North Vietnam. There is so much on this guy. He has never done anything worth while in his entire life, let alone heroic. You be the judge.

WAYNE MADSEN/WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
INTRODUCTION:

Donald Trump Was ‘Spot On’ Relating To John McCain’s Military Career & Records
John McCain was a ‘rat’ or ‘stoolie’ telling on other U.S. officers being held captive at the Hanoi Hilton prison.  When McCain first went to congress, members of congress turned their backs on him and did not communicate with him because of this, and also how he disgraced the military and his fellow officers who were severely punished by the North Vietnam guards and commanders of the Communist prison by McCain ratting them out.  I am also led to believe that McCain was referred to as ‘the canary’ by the other officers for telling or squealing on the others.  If you search the internet you will find some of these articles about what McCain did to his fellow officers in captivity and the stories of the other brave officers who reported on McCain upon returning to the United States.  He was also given special treatment by the communists while in prison, because his father was a 4 star Admiral.  Donald Trump was and is CORRECT!

USS Forrestal, July 29, 1967 – The worst accident aboard a US Navy surface vessel since WWII
BY WAYNE MADSEN/WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
[Forrestalfire2]

The Navy released John McCain’s military record after a Freedom of Information Act request from the Associated Press. The record is packed with information on McCain’s medals and commendations but little else.  The one thing that the McCain campaign does not want to see released is the record of McCain’s antics on board the USS Forestal in 1967.  McCain was personally responsible for the deadliest fire in the history of the US Navy.  That catastrophe, with 27 dead and over 100 wounded trumps McCain’s record as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.
WMR has learned additional details regarding the deadly fire aboard the Navy aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal, on July 19, 1967, in the Gulf of Tonkin.  The additional details point to then-Lt. Commander John McCain playing more of a role in triggering the fire and explosions than previously reported.
On January 16, 2006, WMR reported that according to a US Navy sailor who was aboard the Forrestal on the fateful day of the fire, “McCain and the Forrestal’s skipper, Capt. John K. Beling were warned about the danger of using M-65 1000-lb. bombs manufactured in 1935, which were deemed too dangerous to use during World War II and, later, on B-52 bombers.  The fire from the Zuni missile misfire resulted in the heavy 1000 pound bombs being knocked loose from the pylons of McCain’s A-4 aircraft, which were only designed to hold 500-pound bombs.”

WMR further reported, “The unstable bombs had a 60-second cook-off threshold in a fire situation and this warning was known to both Beling and McCain prior to the disaster.”   WMR also cited the potential that McCain’s Navy records were used against him by the neo-cons in control of the Pentagon.  “The neo-cons, who have had five years to examine every file within the Department of Defense, have likely accessed documents that could prove embarrassing to McCain, who was on board the USS Forrestal on July 29, 1967, and whose A-4 Skyhawk was struck by an air-to-ground Zuni missile that had misfired from an F-4 Phantom.”

WMR has been informed that crewmen aboard the Forrestal have provided additional information about the Forrestal incident.  It is believed by many crewmen and those who have investigated the case that McCain deliberately “wet-started” his A-4E to shake up the guy in the plane behind his A-4.  “Wet-starts”, done either deliberately or accidentally, shoot a large flame from the tail of the aircraft.

In McCain’s case, the “wet-start” apparently “cooked off” and launched the Zuni rocket from the rear F-4 that touched off the explosions and massive fire. 
The F-4 pilot was reportedly killed in the conflagration.  “Wet starting” was apparently a common practice among young “hot-dog” pilots.

McCain was quickly transferred to the USS Oriskany (the only Forrestal crewman to be immediately transferred).  Three months later, McCain was shot down over North Vietnam on October 26, 1967.

As WMR previously reported, at the time of the Forrestal disaster, McCain’s father, Admiral John McCain, Jr., was Commander-in-Chief of US Naval Forces Europe (CINCUSNAVEUR) and was busy covering up the details of the deadly and pre-meditated June 8, 1967, Israeli attack on the NSA spy ship, the USS Liberty.  [John McCain is one of the best cases against military ‘nepotism’ in American history.]

The fact that both McCains were involved in two incidents just weeks apart that resulted in a total death count of 168 on the Forrestal and the Liberty, with an additional injury count of 234 on both ships (with a number of them later dying from their wounds) with an accompanying classified paper trail inside the Pentagon, maybe all that was needed to hold a Sword of Damocles over the head of the “family honor”-oriented McCain by the neo-cons.
WMR has also been informed by knowledgeable sources, including an ex-Navy A-4 pilot, the “wet-start game” was a common occurrence.  However, it is between “very unlikely” and “impossible” for the Forrestal “wet start” to have been accidental.  “Wet starts” were later rendered impossible by automated engine controls.

McCain Lies About Being Tortured As  A  P.O.W.
From: NATIONAL VIETNAM P.O.W. STRIKE FORCE
To: CBS News, 10/12/97

You did not do your homework well enough on “Hanoi John” McCain. If you had read the lengthy article about him in the April 1973 issue of U.S. News and World Report, you would have seen that in none of his quotes did he allege torture, except the irate civilians at the scene of his crash. Once in captivity, he lived in relative splendor compared to his hapless cohorts who refused to denounce America on the radio and paid for their patriotism in blood, literally. Here are some other facts your sloppy journalism omitted:

(1) USAF Major Overly could not have cared for McCain’s “wounds” for very long; he collaborated and accepted early release in less than five months from shootdown.

(2) Another of McCain’s roommates “disappeared” and was not released at Homecoming I. McCain was kept in the camp for “progressives” (collaborators) and away from “reactionaries” (John Wayne types who spit in the face of their torturers). Other roommates were Day and Flynn, both of whom made propaganda broadcasts along with McCain urging pilots to return to carriers and soldiers to surrender.

(3) McCain returned from communist captivity 10 pounds heavier.

(4) Patricia O’Grady, daughter of a POW/MIA, on a visit to Hanoi to look for her father, was given a tour of the “Hanoi Hilton” prison. They showed her McCain’s cell. It had a writing desk, a large bed, a goldfish bowl, a flush toilet and a nice window of downtown Hanoi out the window.

(5) Both North Vietnamese Generals Giap and Bui Tin met with McCain in his cell. No other returned POWs reported meeting with high-ranking generals. I have a picture of McCain enjoying a large plate of food while talking to a Soviet KGB officer in the Foreign Ministry. A Soviet doctor was rushed to Hanoi to treat his wounds.

(6) In personal conversations I have had with General Bui Tin, he assured me they never touched McCain, saying that since he was the son of the CINCPACFLT Admiral, “He too important”.

(7) McCain said in 1973, he sustained his ordeal with his “love for his wife”. In a matter of months, he had dumped her for a woman 1/3rd his age whose father owned the Coors Beer franchise in Phoenix. (His good friend Senator Kerry, about the same time, dumped his wife after fornicating with Jane Fonda.) McCain also has a secret “wife” in Hanoi and an illegitimate son.

(8) McCain would sit beside with army officers at a table when newly-captured pilots arrived and urged them to cooperate.

(9) McCain viciously fought against the formation of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA and then got on it and sabotaged any hopes of finding real answers. He called me and others crooks profiteering on the issue, yet he is the biggest loot recipient of the Keating Five.

(10) If the “Crowned Prince” of the “Plantation” does not stop his outlandish lies about his “torture”, several of his fellow POW’s “will” soon break their “code of silence”. McCain is a brainwashed Manchurian candidate who has fawningly supported Hanoi and the Communist Bloc countries ever since he entered Congress. The man is a liar, a traitor and a crook. Any senator who uses the word “scumbag” 20 times a day addressing his employees is not fit to serve.

Also, CBS, you went on to a segment of a Latino who was on death row (wrongfully) in a “miscarriage of justice”. The biggest “MOJ” of this decade would be for traitor and Hanoi lover McCain to continue in office after the 1998 elections.

Celebrities who said they would move to Canada if Trump was elected, but did no such thing

No, instead of doing everyone a favor, except those in Canada, they are all still here. What would we do without the wisdom of Cher or Whoopie? They have talent in their fields, but when they stray into areas that require more than memorizing lines written by somebody else, they are exposed.

I'll still watch some movies with Whoopie. I'll also listen to some of the old Sonny and Cher records. Barbra Streisand is one of America's greatest vocalists, but please, ladies and gentlemen, don't talk. It all comes undone when you open your mouths and speak on subjects about which you know nothing. Better yet, how about keeping your promises to inflict yourselves on some other country. I'm sure Canada, upon hearing the promise of these people to move there, is wondering what they did to deserve that.


Bruce        New World Order News



America would be a much better place if the hollywood swamp creatures listed below would have followed through on their election promise.
Unfortunately, as with all things hollywood, the below celebrities are completely full of sh**.
Via Zerohedge…

The last few weeks of disgusting exposés from various so-called celebrities have proven one thing for sure – you cannot trust a single one of them… But then we knew that a year ago when half the liberal media world declared they would leave if Donald Trump was elected President… They didn’t!
As a reminder, Canada’s immigration website crashed from heavy traffic as it looked increasingly likely that Trump would win.

Here is a list of celebrities who said they would move to Canada if Trump beat Hillary (via The Hill)…
Actors

Bryan Cranston said he hopes he doesn’t have to pack his bags, but would “definitely move” if Trump won. “Absolutely, I would definitely move,” the “Breaking Bad” star said on “The Bestseller Experiment” podcast. “It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

Samuel L. Jackson slammed Trump for running a “hate”-filled campaign and said he would move to South Africa if he wins. “If that motherf—er becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa,” the movie star quipped to Jimmy Kimmel.

Lena Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards that “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will. I know a lovely place in Vancouver.” The star and creator of HBO’s “Girls” has been a vocal advocate for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee.

Neve Campbell, an actress on the political drama “House of Cards,” vowedto move back home to Canada, while “Orange is the New Black” actress Natasha Lyonne said she would hightail it to a mental hospital.

Singers

Cher tweeted this summer that if Trump gets elected, “I’m moving to Jupiter.”

Miley Cyrus wrote in an emotional Instagram post in March that tears were running down her cheek and she was unbelievably scared and sad. “I am moving if he is president,” the young pop star said. “I don’t say things I don’t mean!”

Barbara Streisand, a vocal Clinton supporter, told “60 Minutes” that “I’m either coming to your country if you’ll let me in, or Canada.”
Ne-Yo told TMZ last month that he’d move to Canada and be neighbors with fellow R&B singer Drake if the country elected Trump.

Comedians

Comedian Amy Schumer said in September that Spain would be her destination of choice. “My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish,” Schumer said in an appearance on the BBC’s “Newsnight.” “Because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s just too crazy.”

Chelsea Handler said she already made contingency plans months ago. “I did buy a house in another country just in case,” the comedian and talk show host said during an appearance on “Live with Kelly and Michael” in May. “So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t — I actually will leave that country.”

Former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart said he would consider “getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers” if the real estate mogul wins.

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of the “The View”, said on an episode of the talk show earlier this year that if the country elects Trump, “maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go.”

Keegan-Michael Key said he would flee north to Canada. “It’s like, 10 minutes from Detroit,” the comedian told TMZ in January. “That’s where I’m from; my mom lives there. It’d make her happy too.”

Hispanic comedian George Lopez said Trump “won’t have to worry about immigration” if he takes the White House because “we’ll all go back.”

Political Figures

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joked in an interview with The New York Times in July that it’d be time to move to New Zealand if Trump were to win. “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” she said quoting her husband who died in 2010. “I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.” Ginsburg later apologized for her comments, calling them “ill-advised.”
Civil rights activist Al Sharpton told a reporter earlier this year that he’s “reserving my ticket out of here if [Trump] wins.”

One year later…and they are all still in the USA.

WORLD WAR 3 UPDATE: JUST WHEN WE THOUGHT PEACE WOULD PREVAIL

Not with this bunch. War is what they're all about. War is good business. Never before in the history of this country have there been so many wars and potential wars. We can't afford it. We don't have the bodies. If they have their way, they'll never end.

So, just when the war in Syria is ending, here come the war mongers dusting off the tired old “Assad is gassing his own people” narrative. It wasn't true before and it won't be true in the future. Never mind that. According to sources, the U.S. may be preparing to attack Damascus after the upcoming gas attack. Air defenses in Syria are on full alert and Russia has sent several ships into the Mediterranean to support offensive and defensive actions.

Like most of the 330 million Americans, I would like very much not have a world war. Those who lust for it are nuts. It is even worse when they have to lie about the reasons for starting a war. Anyway, here we go again. Let's pray that, as it was in the past, it will not start a war with Russia and others, but this can't go on forever. These people need to go before all of us go.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian air defenses have been placed on highest alert across the country, pro-government reporters claimed this afternoon.

These reports seem to have some truth behind them because a source at the Mezzeh Airbase said that they have been ordered to make preparations for a possible attack on Damascus.

The reason for placing the air defenses on the highest alert was not revealed; however, it is believed to be due to the potential threat of a U.S. strike on the capital or its surrounding area.

Earlier this week, the Russian Ministry of Defense accused the U.S. and its allies of making preparations to attack Syria.
The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the rebels in Idlib are preparing to launch a chemical weapons attack and blame it on the government.
They said the U.S. will use this chemical weapons attack to launch strikes against the government.

  

Russia has built up its forces around the Mediterranean Sea in response to reports [yet to be confirmed G.R] of the U.S., France, and Great Britain preparing to attack Syria.

According to Yoruk Isik of the Bosphorus Observer, the Russian Navy has sent another armada of ships towards Syria’s territorial waters in order to increase the strength of their forces around the country.

Isik said that the powerful Russian warships, Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Essen class frigate, were spotted transiting the Bosphorus Strait en route to the Port of Tartous:

4:52 AM - Aug 25, 2018

This latest move by the Russian Navy comes just 24 hours after they sent three ships en route to the Port of Tartous in western Syria.
With the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) preparing to launch a large-scale offensive in northwest Syria, Russia fears that the jihadist rebels may fake a chemical weapons attack in order to get the U.S. and its allies to attack the government.

JOHN MCCAIN: NO HERO

Far from it ---- It is customary to speak well of those who are in their last days or have actually passed from the scene. I'm going to break that custom. Today, the McCain family announced that cancer treatments for the Senator will be discontinued. At 82, it appears that this is the end of the line for John McCain.

But what about the mediawhore narrative of declaring John McCain a “war hero”. Well, first of all the act of being captured by the enemy does not automatically make one a war hero. In order to agree to that label one has to look at the totality of his life. Back in his youth as a young pilot McCain was termed as a “hot dog” in his operation of jet planes. Indeed, in one of those incidents McCain conducted a “hot shot” in 1967 aboard the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal fire that killed 134 sailors. He had to be airlifted off the ship to avoid being attacked by the crew members. Then, after he was shot down over North Vietnam, according to others imprisoned with him, he disappeared for a year while he toured Eastern Europe giving reports to enemy governments. This is one of the reasons those who were with him in prison gave him the nickname “songbird”. When he returned, he had to be pardoned by Nixon.

When McCain returned from Vietnam, his beauty queen wife who waited for him throughout his imprisonment, had been disfigured in an automobile accident some time before his return. He waited a few months, then dumped her.

McCain then used his label as a “war hero” to successfully run for the Senate from Arizona. While in the senate he single handedly blocked attempts in the Senate to locate servicemen who may still be imprisoned in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. If any were still there, they would then be doomed to rot in those countries.

McCain always supported wars to be waged on other countries. He even had a photo-op with Neo- Nazis in Ukraine soon after the U.S. funded overthrow of the elected government there. In recent elections, McCain always won and there were always numerous complaints of election irregularities and outright fraud. Exit polls would show him losing, then when the results were counted he always managed to come out on top.

McCain has lived 82 years. Despite his label as a “war hero”, there isn't a single example of anything he has done in his entire life that would be shown as positive, let alone “heroic”. In history it is a sad custom for governments and empires to lionize those who have served them. All of the Pharaohs, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, the Caesars, Alexander the Great and so on have statues, and plaques in their honor, but for them, as it is for all of us, the real judge is waiting and he pays no attention to the honor of men.

Much has been made about John McCain’s war heroism. Even his opponent Barrack Obama has gone out of his way to praise McCain’s patriotism and heroism. America has a long tradition of electing war heroes, from George Washington to Ulysses S. Grant to John F Kennedy. Unlike Washington Grant and Kennedy who fought in the Revolutionary war Civil War and World War II, McCain fought in a war that was highly unpopular and viewed as unnecessary.

The Revolutionary War gave the U.S. independence, the Civil War ended slavery, WWII saved the world from Hitler’s domination and ended the genocide of the European jews. What exactly was accomplished by the Vietnam War other than the deaths of thousands of U.S. soldiers and millions of Veitnamese soldiers and civilians? Most non-neocons would agree that the Vietnamese war was an ideologically based war for the US empire of capitalism against the communists.

Fighting in a war does not make you a hero. Were the Nazi soldiers heroes? Were confederate soldiers heroes? Part of being a hero is fighting for a good cause that saves lives and makes the world a better place not taking lives and making it a worse one. Unfortunately for our soldiers, it is not them who decide whether they are heroes, villains or victims of the wars they fight but up to the leaders who wage the wars. Most of the soldiers who fought in Vietnam did not want to fight in the war at all and were drafted, victims of their government’s imperialist warmongering policies. McCain on the other hand volunteered for the war, marking the 1st time he followed his president to an idiotic war.

Unlike Kennedy, John McCain did not fight on the front lines, instead flying a plane and bombing strategic targets and the occasional innocent civilian. McCain participated in Rolling Thunder, an Operation that dropped hundreds of tons of bombs on Vietnam.By all accounts, Mccain was an unqualified, incompetent pilot Given that Vietnam did not have an airforce it is unlikely that McCain engaged in any Top Gun like arial maneuvers. .
McCain’s plane was shot down by anit-aircraft fire in 1967. He parachuted into a lake and was saved by a Vietnamese peasant who fought off an angry mob that wanted to kill him. If someone were to bomb a power plant in the US and had their planes shot down they would be seen as a terrorist. I doubt any American would pull him out the Hudson river and save him from an angry mob, Americans would call for his execution and justify his torture.
When McCain’s plane was shot down he wasn’t bombing any military target at all just a power plant in Hanoi with a team of 20 planes that were made to shut down vietnam’s infrastructure. Millions of Vietnamese civilians were killed by American bombs from planes like McCain’s. In 1997, on 60 Minutes McCain said ‘I am a war criminal, I bombed innocent women and children.’

Unlike the many Arab prisoners in Guantanamo bay and Abu Ghraib, McCain quickly cracked under the pressure of his captors. Giving up all relevant information he had and issuing a statement, “I am a black criminal and I have performed the deeds of a war pirate…I almost died and the Vietnamese people saved my life thanks to the doctors”

In a time where we can clearly see the negative affects of a war-mongering president on the economy and foreign policy, McCain seems a bad choice for president. McCain’s history as a bomber and his disregard for civilian casualties make him an ideal candidate for continuing Bush’s foreign policies. If anything his experience in Vietnam have made him more mean-spirited. On his tour bus in 2000 McCain said “I hate gooks, I will hate them all my life” He has called his wife a cunt and cursed out several senators who disagreed with him.

A true patriot follows his country to war when it is absolutely necessary and leads his country away from war when he is not. McCain is a war villain and a war criminal, not a hero. Muhammed Ali was a hero for standing up for his beliefs and refusing to go to the Vietnam war. The many people who risked their freedom to protest the Vietnam war are heroes. People like John Kerry who fought in the war and then came back to reveal the atrocities to the American people were heroes. People like John McCain who voluntarily fought an illegal, immoral war and admitted to killing innocent civilians in the cause of spreading capitalism and eliminating communism are not at all.

In 1967 an accident involving a napalm bomb on a Navy ship lead to the deaths of 134 soldiers. After it, McCain told the New York Times: “Now that I’ve seen what the bombs and napalm did to the people on our ship, I’m not so sure that I want to drop any more of that stuff on North Vietnam.” He kept bombing even when other pilots refused to take place in the bombing until his plane was shot down.

I’m sure Obama will stay clear of criticizing McCain’s war experience and continue to praise him on his service. However, I’m sure that others will attack his patriotism and war experience. Being a veteran or P.O.W. does not qualify you for the presidency, especially in a time where war-mongering and disregard for civilian casualties have led to abysmal international relations for the US and its lowest popularity rating since Vietnam.

If America really wants to have another Vietnam, another draft, billions more dollars taken away from our schools, healthcare system given to our military to kill civilians abroad then we should elect John McCain. John McCain is an admitted war criminal who still hates “gooks” and wants to bomb Iran, with no regard for the deaths of innocent civilians. In 2001 Mccain said “I hated my enemies even before they held me captive because hate sustained me in my devotion to their complete destruction and helped me overcome the virtuous human impulse to recoil in disgust from what had to be done by my hand.” Is this the kind of man we want in charge of our armed forces?

TIME FOR U.S. TO BREAK DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH MOST RACIST COUNTRY ON EARTH

Guess which nation it is? It's South Africa. Yes, our old friend from the 1970's and 80's is at it again. As they say, “The players may have changed, but the game remains the same”. During the last part of the past century, we were treated to non-stop stories about the apartheid government in control of South Africa. Yes, most of it was justified, but just because you oppose a tyranny doesn't mean you are not a tyrant. That is the case with the new racist regime controlling South Africa.

Fresh from authorization from the ANC controlled legislature, the black majority government in South Africa is now in the process of stealing land from land owners based on the color of their skin. There also has been a large uptick in violence towards white people in that nation. Indeed, many whites are now fleeing for their lives and moving to Australia, New Zealand and even Russia.

Now, I'm wondering why we haven't heard a peep from those in our nation that scream racism over almost anything? There are a lot of famous people who have lost their livelihood when attacked over the use of fairly innocent words. O.K., let's say everything they claim against Chris Bosio, Papa John and others is true. Wouldn't also be reasonable to expect these same people to condemn the racist actions on the part of the government in South Africa? ------ or are they hypocrites?

​The government of South Africa responded to President Trump on Thursday by doubling down and saying they're going to "speed up" the expropriation of white-owned farms and land.

"South Africa totally rejects this narrow perception which only seeks to divide our nation and reminds us of our colonial past," the South African government's official Twitter account tweeted.

IS EVERYONE RUNNING OUR GOVERNMENT NUTS?

It's got to be hard for everyday Americans ( and British and French for that matter) to conduct their everyday lives in the face of the daily lunacy from our government masters. The latest installment covers a story that our government masters intend to “punish”  the Assad government in Syria for gassing their own people. Really? They have to be nuts!

It's been proven over and over again that the Assad government never gassed their own people. It has been proven over and over again that whatever gassing took place was on the part of the so-called Syrian rebels. Then we have Russian collusion and Russian interference in the 2016 election ---- never happened. Then there are the recently imposed sanctions on Russia because of the Skripal poisoning in Britain. Again, no evidence that there was a poisoning and no evidence that Russia did it. Then there was the story that Russia invaded and conquered Crimea. The Crimean people voted to leave Ukraine after the U.S. funded Coup in Ukraine. They then voted to join Russia.

One hogwash story after another. Judging from polls of the American and British people, very few believe this garbage, yet they persist. It would be funny if it weren't for the possibility that these government sponsored delusions could lead to the war to end all wars. They have to be nuts.

Western military powers have warned the Syrian government against using chemical weapons again. It comes as the Assad regime is expected to launch an offensive against the last rebel-held province.

The United States, France and Britain on Tuesday vowed to respond to the use of chemical weapons by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad amid anticipation the regime is preparing a major offensive to retake Idlib province.

The statement from the permanent UN Security Council members came on the fifth anniversary of a sarin nerve agent attack in Eastern Ghouta that killed hundreds of people. The West blamed the attack on the Assad regime, which in turn blamed rebels.

"As Permanent Members of the Security Council, we reaffirm our shared resolve to preventing the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, and for holding them accountable for any such use," the three military powers said in a joint statement.

"As we have demonstrated, we will respond appropriately to any further use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, which has had such devastating
humanitarian consequences for the Syrian population," the three countries said.

The United States and Russia brokered a 2013 deal to dismantle Syria's chemical weapons program following US threats of military action in response to the Ghouta attack.  

The Syrian regime has since been accused by Western powers of using chemical weapons on dozens of occasions, including in Khan Sheikhoun, Ltamenah, Saraqeb, and Douma.

Most of the suspected regime attacks involved chlorine, but the UN chemical watchdog determined sarin was used in the April 2017 aerial attack on Khan Sheikhoun that killed more than 70 people.

The Khan Sheikhoun attack led to the US to launch cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airbase, raising concerns over a direct conflict with the Assad regime’s ally, Russia.

In April this year, the US, UK and France conducted joint airstrikes in Syria in response to the suspected chemical attack in Douma.
Russia has repeated shielded Syria at the UN from being blamed for chemical weapons attacks. When the UN and the Organization for the Prohibition of
Chemical Weapons blamed the Assad regime for the use of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun, Moscow responded last November by vetoing a renewal of their mandate to apportion blame for chemical weapons attacks.  

UN inspectors determined sarin was used in the August 2013 attack in Eastern Ghouta
In June, a Western-backed move supported by parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention enabled members to established responsibility without the inference of governments, which the US, France and UK said "will help ensure that the perpetrators of chemical weapons use in Syria cannot escape identification."

Concern chemical weapons could be used in Idlib
The US, UK and France also said they were "gravely concerned" over the humanitarian consequences of a Syrian regime offensive on Idlib province abutting Turkey.

"We also underline our concern at the potential for further – and illegal – use of chemical weapons" in Idlib province, the trio said.
Backed by Russia and Iran, the Assad regime has largely turned the war in its favor, retaking large swaths of territory from rebels since Russia intervened in 2015.

Idlib province is the last rebel stronghold and is dominated by jihadists factions.

Hundreds of thousands of internally displaced are living in makeshift camps in Idlib province
Thousands of rebel fighters and their families have been transported to Idlib from other parts of the country under Russian-brokered "reconciliation deals" that have handed numerous towns and cities back to the government.

The UN has warned an offensive could unleash a major humanitarian catastrophe for the 2.5 million civilians in Idlib, most of whom are internally displaced from other parts of Syria.

A Syrian offensive could also put the Assad regime into direct conflict with Turkey, which has around a dozen military posts in Idlib and seeks to prevent a massive influx of refugees and rebel fighters from pouring across its border.

Paul Manafort convicted by jury on bank and tax fraud charges ---- A FOREGONE CONCLUSION


I have been amused at the stories coming out of the mediawhores and even the alternative media. They have actually advanced the theory that Manafort had a chance of being acquitted in his federal trial on 18 counts on various charges. My amusement comes from a couple of things that are now reality in 2018 America. The first is, in the case of Federal charges coming to trial, there is a 99.8% Conviction Rate In U.S. Federal Courts. Juries are very carefully selected under the direct supervision of Federal prosecutors and judges. If one believes that 99.8% of those indicted in Federal cases are guilty, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons for sale. Yes, I know, the charges against Cliven Bundy were dismissed. I also know he spent 700 days in jail for no crime. I guess he is one of the .02%

The second point is one from the days when Nazis were in control of Germany. They enacted so many laws that it became impossible for the average German to avoid breaking a law. This enabled the Nazis to control the populace by threatening them with arrest for violating a law unless they cooperated.

So the premise that Manafort or any other American has a snowball's chance in hell to avoid being found guilty, is on the same level with any other tyranny. I'd love to see the conviction rates in China or Iran or North Korea. It would be hard to exceed the 99.8%. By the way --- our nation has more people in prison or jail than the next 7 nations combined.

A federal jury in Virginia convicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on eight counts related to bank and tax fraud, making him the first campaign associate of President Trump found guilty by a jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
But after four days of deliberations, the jury told Judge T.S. Ellis III on Tuesday afternoon that it could not come to a decision on the ten other counts. A mistrial was declared on those counts.

The jury began deliberating last Thursday after a three week trial where prosecutors said Manafort hid income earned from political work overseas from the IRS while fraudulently obtaining millions in bank loans. Manafort, 69, had pleaded not guilty.
Manafort was stone faced as the verdict was read. The government has until Aug. 29 to decide whether they will move to retry the 10 counts deadlocked on by the jury.

Outside court, Manafort attorney Kevin Downing thanked the jury for “their very long and hard fought deliberation.
”Speaking of his client, Downing said: “He is evaluating all of his options at this point.”

Before the jury was dismissed, Ellis asked jurors if they wanted their names to remain confidential. All answered yes. The judge told them they are allowed to speak to the press if they choose.

In court, Ellis, known for his colorful comments and reprimands of lawyers throughout the trial, said he wanted to “state publicly that the government and Mr. Manafort received effective and zealous representation.”

Earlier Tuesday, the 12-member jury signaled difficulty reaching consensus on at least one count.
In a note passed to Ellis, the jury asked: "If we cannot come to consensus on a single count...what does that mean for the final verdict?"
Ellis responded that this would not be “exceptional” and said the jury could reach a “partial verdict.”

Defense attorney Kevin Downing asked Ellis if he would tell the jury they have a third option – “hung jury” -- on each of these counts. The prosecution objected to that plan and Ellis agreed.

The whirlwind trial is the first to result from Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling, although Manafort's prosecution does not relate to any election interference or alleged collusion by the Trump team with Russian officials.
Democrats on Capitol Hill pounced after the verdict.

“The conviction of Paul Manafort on multiple felony charges of bank and tax fraud marks a major turning point in the Special Counsel’s ongoing investigation, and shows again that the President’s campaign was populated by individuals with a history of unscrupulous and dishonest business dealings and concerning ties to overseas interests,” said California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

Manafort entered the courtroom earlier Tuesday morning looking upbeat. Manafort patted a couple of his lawyers on the shoulder and acknowledged his wife Kathleen, sitting in the front row, with a wink.

In closing arguments last week, the prosecution painted the former Trump campaign chairman as a chronic liar, telling jurors Manafort is “not above the law.”

The prosecution’s star witness, Rick Gates – Manafort’s former business partner who struck a plea deal to cooperate with the government -- testified during the trial that he and Manafort committed bank and tax fraud together.

The defense rested their case without calling Manafort or any other witnesses the stand. But attorneys for Manafort suggested that Mueller’s team had improperly ensnared their client in its probe, as the case did not have anything to do with Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Manafort’s legal troubles won’t end with this trial. He is also facing charges in a separate federal court case in Washington, including conspiring against the United States, conspiring to launder money, failing to register as an agent of a foreign principal and providing false statements.


 

The presumption of innocence is often touted in the United States as the fundamental principle shielding an accused person from being unjustly convicted of a crime. The basis of that claim is that to overcome the presumption of innocence the government is required to present substantial evidence that proves beyond a reasonable doubt the defendant’s guilt of every essential element of his or her accused crime(s).

There is, however, a sharp disconnect between the reality of how the legal system actually works, and the theory that the presumption of innocence provides a protective shield to a defendant.

A defendant who goes to trial forces the prosecution to present the evidence proving its case to a jury or a judge. However, that process is short-circuited by a defendant who enters a plea of guilty.[1] For judges the gold standard of evidence is a public confession of guilt. Consequently, a guilty plea effectively relieves the government of having to present independent evidence a defendant is actually guilty.

The Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees a defendant has the right to a jury trial.[2] That looks good on paper and makes for a good sound bite in a 4th of July speech. However, in 2015 only 1.6% of federal court defendants whose case was adjudicated had a jury trial. and 0.8% of defendants waived their right to a jury trial and elected to be tried by a judge.[3] Consequently about 1 of every 63 defendants in federal court is convicted by a jury — and 1 out of 42 is convicted after a trial of any kind. State courts aren’t appreciably different, since about 4% of state court defendants are convicted after a jury or bench trial.

Whether tried by a jury or a judge, it is a shaky roll of the dice for a defendant to go to trial in federal court. Only 258 of the 3,024 defendants who went to trial in 2015 were acquitted. Thus a federal defendant who decides to go to trial has about a 1 in 12 chance of an acquittal.
The 41 out of 42 (97.6%) of federal defendants in 2015 whose case was adjudicated without a trial, were convicted by a plea of guilty — a public confession. The federal judge or magistrate were minor participants with the U.S. Attorney’s Office relying on the defendant’s mouth to obtain those convictions.

Between guilty pleas and trials, the conviction rate was 99.8% in U.S. federal courts in 2015: 126,802 convictions and 258 acquittals. That wasn’t an anomaly. In 2014 the conviction rate was 99.76% and in 2013 it was 99.75%.

There is nothing new about the high conviction rate in federal courts, although it has been consistently rising since 1973. The conviction rate has been above 99% since 2003, above 98% since 1995, above 97% since 1985, above 96% since 1982, above 95% since 1975, and above 94% every years since 1955.[4] As the conviction rate has increased, the number of acquittals has precipitously declined. The 2,371 defendants acquitted in federal court in 1973 was more than the 2,362 defendants acquitted in the six years from 2010 to 2015. That was the case even though in 1973 40,493 defendants were convicted, compared with the 850,365 defendants convicted from 2010 to 2015. Even more graphically, in 1973 there were 17 convictions for every defendant acquitted in federal court, while in 2015 there were 493 convictions for every acquittal. So a federal defendant is now about 2,900% more likely to be convicted than in the early 1970s.

Although overall federal courts generate convictions at a remarkable rate, there were twenty federal judicial districts that had a 100% conviction rate in 2015. Not a single defendant was acquitted in:
Colorado: 466 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Delaware: 88 convictions, 0 acquittals.
District of Columbia: 262 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Illinois, Central: 346 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Illinois, Northern: 898 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Illinois, Southern: 412 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Indiana, Northern: 266 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Indiana, Southern: 386 convictions, 0 acquittals.
New Hampshire, 154 convictions, 0 acquittals.
North Carolina, Eastern: 529 convictions, 0 acquittals.
North Carolina, Western: 791 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Pennsylvania, Middle: 392 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Pennsylvania, Western: 495 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Tennessee, Eastern: 722 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Texas, Eastern: 1,071 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Vermont: 201 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Washington, Western: 518 convictions, 0 acquittals.
West Virginia, Southern: 301 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Wisconsin, Eastern: 336 convictions, 0 acquittals.
Wisconsin, Western: 98 convictions, 0 acquittals.

It is particularly notable that in 2015 there were zero federal court acquittals in Illinois — the fifth most populous state with 12.9 million people.[5]

Twenty-eight other federal judicial districts had one defendant acquitted in 2015:
Alabama, Middle: 162 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Alaska: 183 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Arkansas, Western: 262 convictions, 1 acquittal.
California, Northern: 470 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Georgia, Southern: 445 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Guam: 100 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Iowa, Northern: 359 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Iowa, Southern: 329 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Kentucky, Western: 238 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Louisiana, Eastern: 412 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Louisiana, Middle: 171 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Louisiana, Western: 353 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Maine: 188 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Massachusetts: 456 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Mississippi, Southern: 306 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Missouri, Eastern: 464 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Missouri, Western: 891 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Nevada: 671 convictions, 1 acquittal.
New York, Eastern: 648 convictions, 1 acquittal.
North Carolina, Middle: 526 convictions, 1 acquittal.
North Dakota: 457 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Northern Mariana Islands: 20 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Ohio, Northern: 738 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Oklahoma, Eastern: 99 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Oregon: 640 convictions, 1 acquittal.
South Carolina: 737 convictions, 1 acquittal.
Utah: 650 convictions, 1 acquittal.
West Virginia, Northern: 424 convictions, 1 acquittal.
So more than half of the 94 federal judicial districts had zero to one acquittal in 2015.
The five federal judicial districts with the most convictions were:
Texas, Southern: 28,359 convictions, 7 acquittals. (99.9753% conviction rate)
Arizona: 22,195 convictions, 10 acquittals. (99.9752% conviction rate)
Texas, Western: 18,897 convictions, 11 acquittals.
New Mexico: 4,869 convictions, 6 acquittals.
California, Southern: 4,309 convictions, 12 acquittals.
Six federal judicial districts had less than a 99% conviction rate in 2015:
Hawaii: 497 convictions, 12 acquittals. (97.6% conviction rate)
Rhode Island: 130 convictions, 3 acquittals. (97.7% conviction rate)
Washington, Eastern District: 487 convictions, 8 acquittals.
Montana: 451 convictions, 6 acquittals.
Alabama, Southern: 329 convictions, 4 acquittals.
Georgia, Northern: 677 convictions, 7 acquittals.

Statistically, the two best places to be prosecuted in federal court are Hawaii and Rhode Island. Those are the only two federal judicial districts with conviction rates less than 98% — 97.6% and 97.7% respectively.

The worst place to be prosecuted? Hard to say, but making a blind pick would be reasonable since deciding to go to trial can legitimately be considered either suicidal or the sign of a severely deranged mind in almost every other federal district. Of the federal courts that actually had an acquittal, the

Southern District of Texas stands out with more than 4,051 convictions for every acquittal — a 99.9753% conviction rate.
Not only is a defendant who goes to trial very likely to be convicted, but once convicted there is a very low probability a wrongly convicted federal defendant can win exoneration. In 2015 there were only 31 known exonerations of a federal defendant, similar to 2014 when there were 29.[6] Likewise, of the thousands of federal habeas corpus petitions filed each year by state prisoners seeking to overturn their conviction, in 2015 only eight were exonerated by a state court after their federal petition was granted. That was slightly abnormal, because in 2014 three were exonerated, in 2013 four were exonerated, and in 2012 and 2011 two were exonerated each year. [7] So in five years 19 state prisoners in the U.S. were exonerated with the assistance of the federal courts.

Federal courts were not defendant friendly in 1955, or 1973, but now the odds are so heavily stacked against a defendant that it would be appropriate if every federal courthouse had Dante’s admonition inscribed above its entrance: “Abandon hope all ye who enter here.”
That is only a slight exaggeration since the statistics clearly show that a federal criminal court today functions as little more than a processing facility to transform hapless defendants into convicts.

The conviction culture that prevails in federal courts is resulting in the majority of U.S. District Court and magistrate judges going for a year and more without a single defendant being acquitted in their courtroom. So it is not only the prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office who have a conviction mentality, but it can also infect federal judges who experience a parade of defendants convicted by a plea bargain or after a trial. The acquittal of a federal defendant is becoming rare enough that it is almost as newsworthy as a confirmed story of a man biting a dog. For all but a handful of federal defendants the presumption of guilt is the operative principle underlying their prosecution, with the presumption of innocence an illusory catch phrase.

Ironically, the legal system in Japan is often criticized because of that country’s conviction rate of more than 99%. A part of that criticism is prosecutors in Japan inordinately rely on a defendant’s confession to obtain a conviction. [8] Yet, Japanese prosecutors don’t have anything on federal prosecutors in the U.S. who have a 99.8% conviction rate, and as monopsonists, are able in almost 98% of cases to extract a confession of guilt to obtain a conviction.

BRENNAN WANTS TO SUE TO KEEP HIS SECURITY CLEARANCE

Here's a question: Why do people who are no longer employed in government top secret jobs, need a security clearance? In a world that has gone “security nuts” it makes no sense to hand out security clearances to people, then, when they leave their job, let them keep it. In a country where we have thousands of people employed in government in areas exposed to information that is classified, it is tough enough to keep track of all those people and what they do, without having to keep track of those who used to work in government, but no longer do so.

Do we really want Hillary and Bill and Obama and Comey and Valerie Jarret and all of their cronies who were given security clearances, to continue to poke around in highly classified files? Would that be for their own amusement? Would some of these people want to share this information with the press or with foreign governments or large corporations?

If we are going to have thousands of people who have long since left government service maintaining top secret clearances, then we might as well abandon the practice of clearances altogether. A better solution would be to remove the security clearances from everybody who no longer work in the fields for which they were required to be cleared. Never mind Brennan, he's just one person. Just remove all of them.

Bruce                           New World Order News
  


Brennan said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that several lawyers have contacted him to discuss the possibility of filing a complaint against the White House after it revoked his security clearance last week.

"If my clearances and my reputation as I’m being pulled through the mud now, if that’s the price we’re going to pay to prevent [US President] Donald Trump from doing this against other people, to me it’s a small price to pay," Brennan added.

"I’m going to do whatever I can personally to try to prevent these abuses in the future and if it means going to court, I will do that," he stated.
After announcing he was revoking Brennan's clearance, President Trump said he is considering revoking the clearances of several other former intelligence officials. 

Nearly all of those officials have publicly criticized the president and his administration, prompting speculation that the move was retaliatory.
The White House justified revoking Brennan’s clearance by saying he has made unfounded allegations against the current administration, and claimed he has lied during congressional testimony in the past.

Skeptics have noted that Brennan is among the most outspoken critics of the Trump administration, frequently lashing out at the president on Twitter. 
More than a dozen of ex-intelligence officials have expressed support for Brennan in recent days and condemned Trump’s decision to revoke his clearance.

Brennan stressed on Sunday he's heard from numerous former colleagues, but has yet to hear from the White House since they revoked his clearance.
"I was not notified before this happened and I have not heard from anybody since then," he said, adding that "to me that’s not surprising at all the way this White House and administration works".

HOW TO FIGHT FASCISM IN AMERICA

There are those who would encourage you to get a mask and a metal pipe, join ANTIFA and attack anyone who wears a Trump hat or may have patriotic leanings. Actually, that is a perfect example of Fascism. The most well known Fascistic government in modern times is 1930's and 40's Italy.  Benito Mussolini was the dictator of that nation during that time. He was quoted as saying that Fascism would be more accurately termed “corporatism”. That is the unification between government and large corporations. The actions of some of the largest corporations of the past couple of weeks shows this is where we are.

In the early part of the last century, President Theodore Roosevelt was labeled a 'trust buster”. Indeed much of the last century saw our central government break up companies that became too large and dominated their sector of the economy. Even as recently as the late 1970's and early 1980's our government broke up AT&T, who had a monopoly on phone communications. Well, those days are gone.

Now only 6 corporations control 90% of what we see, read and hear in the media. Facebook, Youtube, Microsoft, Amazon and Walmart have a stranglehold on their sectors. They control hundreds of billions of dollars. They can put anyone that competes with them, or displeases them, out of business. Where's ANTIFA protesting them?

Ideally, the government should be prosecuting all of them and others, for anti-trust violations. ----not with this bunch of crooks---. No, for that we'll have to wait for the upcoming economic collapse. In the meantime, we can easily change to alternatives in social media and browsers. Get rid of Facebook. Get rid of Youtube. Say good-bye to Mozilla and the mediawhores. There are now alternatives popping up in competition with them. My browser is now Yandex. You may want a different one. Alex Jones is now on Bitchute. I get my news from RT. It may take a little time, but it is time for us to pull the rug out from any of these corporate masters that have decided to move from business to control.

Bruce                                       New World Order News
 

There is a silent marriage between big government and big business. It’s called fascism, or was in Italy. We have much the same thing in America.
Big business has and will promote every ideology and philosophy known to man to disguise its madness for profits and government favors. All governments are fronts for monopoly capitalism (fascism). America is not a capitalist system by any stretch. This is obvious to any sober person.
Government benefits big business. Big business benefits government. There’s a revolving door between top brass in the multinational corporations and the halls of power in the District of Criminals. They run and populate the president’s cabinet offices and the alphabet soup regulatory agencies. (For evidence, go to the membership roster of the Council on Foreign Relations and see how many names you recognize from government, and study the bios of those you don’t.) In return, government policy is crafted and designed to enrich and favor big business.

The Big Tech companies are no exception and, in fact, prove the rule. Big Tech got/gets massive infusions from the national treasury – and are also government contractors — and in return they scarf up copious amounts of data and other information on their users and supply it to big government; their promises of data security notwithstanding.

With the corporate propaganda media losing its control over the flow of information, Big Tech is stepping in. And it’s partnering with the MSM and the power brokers who operate behind the scenes in an attempt to stifle any thought that falls outside the mainstream.
It’s doing this not just with government’s blessing, but with the threat of regulation or something more, as Communist Senator Chris Murphy from
Connecticut showed with his implied threat via Twitter.

Chris Murphy
✔@ChrisMurphyCT
Infowars is the tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies that uses sites like Facebook and YouTube to tear our nation apart. These companies must do more than take down one website. The survival of our democracy depends on it.


When a major U.S. politician states that something “must” happen, then there is the implied threat that if “something” doesn’t happen then government will respond with “something” more.

Senate democrats are already circulating plans to take over the internet and impose all manner of privacy-invading and speech-stifling laws.
Remember, we told you that everything that is public policy is politically correct, and everything that is politically correct is public policy. It’s how governments ensure conformity and control.

CNN, the Communist News Network that is a purveyor of much of today’s fake news, overtly advocated for the removal of Alex Jones’ websites and podcasts from technology platforms in an attempt to drive him out of business. Facebook, YouTube, Apple, Pinterest, Spotify, Stitcher, YouPorn, LinkedIn and MailChimp all obliged and banned Infowars last week. This week, the comment platform Disqus (which we use on Personal Liberty®, for now) and the video platform Vimeo joined in the purge.

CNN – known for cutting off guests being interviewed live when they venture into subjects contrary to the official narrative – claims to support free speech. But when Newseum, the museum of news media established “to increase public understanding of the importance of a free press and the First Amendment” began selling President Donald Trump’s MAGA hats and t-shirts with the words “Fake News” in the CNN-style font on them, CNN sparked a social justice mob response that forced the museum to pull the items from its gift shop and issue an apology.

Other media outlets have joined in on the pile-on against Infowars and other deliverers of alternative news, claiming that “hate speech” (a nebulous, meaningless term) and “racism” (a term that was so overused in the Obama years that it, too, has lost its meaning) are “unacceptable” and have no place in a civilized society. In response, the media and tech giants have assumed the role of the government’s thought and speech police, with government sanction.

But it’s not just Infowars and so-called “alt-right” (another meaningless, fabricated term) media organs being removed from Big Tech; libertarians and so-called “alt-left” and far left sites are beginning to be purged.

No less than the U.S. Supreme Court, in Matal v. Tam, affirmed there is no such thing as “hate speech”:
[THE IDEA THAT THE GOVERNMENT MAY RESTRICT] SPEECH EXPRESSING IDEAS THAT OFFEND … STRIKES AT THE HEART OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT. SPEECH THAT DEMEANS ON THE BASIS OF RACE, ETHNICITY, GENDER, RELIGION, AGE, DISABILITY, OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR GROUND IS HATEFUL; BUT THE PROUDEST BOAST OF OUR FREE SPEECH JURISPRUDENCE IS THAT WE PROTECT THE FREEDOM TO EXPRESS “THE THOUGHT THAT WE HATE.”

And:
A LAW FOUND TO DISCRIMINATE BASED ON VIEWPOINT IS AN “EGREGIOUS FORM OF CONTENT DISCRIMINATION,” WHICH IS “PRESUMPTIVELY UNCONSTITUTIONAL.” … A LAW THAT CAN BE DIRECTED AGAINST SPEECH FOUND OFFENSIVE TO SOME PORTION OF THE PUBLIC CAN BE TURNED AGAINST MINORITY AND DISSENTING VIEWS TO THE DETRIMENT OF ALL. THE FIRST AMENDMENT DOES NOT ENTRUST THAT POWER TO THE GOVERNMENT’S BENEVOLENCE. INSTEAD, OUR RELIANCE MUST BE ON THE SUBSTANTIAL SAFEGUARDS OF FREE AND OPEN DISCUSSION IN A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.

The media and leftist elites love to call Trump a fascist, but in doing so they are engaging in Orwellian-style newspeak. Nationalism, crudeness or racism (not that we believe Trump is a racist) do not make one fascist. However, banning contrarian thought (21st century book burning) and beating people into submission – physically and verbally – are fascist tactics. The fascists of the left-wing terror group Antifa are far more fascist in their behavior and philosophy than Trump.

As historian Michael Leeden writes for Forbes:

THIS (CALLING TRUMP A FASCIST) IS NOT A PRODUCTIVE DISCUSSION. IT HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH FASCISM ITSELF. FOR THE MOST PART, WE HEAR ABOUT STYLE, NOT IDEAS OR IDEOLOGY. WE HEAR A LOT ABOUT VULGARITY, ABOUT THE ENTHUSIASM OF CROWDS, AND ABOUT THREATS TO BASIC FREEDOMS. ALL SERIOUS SUBJECTS, TO BE SURE, BUT BY MAKING THEM REITERATIONS OF FASCISM (ALL THE WHILE SAYING THEY AREN’T REALLY FASCISM), WE YANK THEM FROM THEIR PROPER CONTEXT AND MAKE PROPER UNDERSTANDING OF BOTH FASCISM AND OUR CURRENT CRISIS IMPOSSIBLE.

ITALIAN FASCISM, WHICH CAME TO POWER IN 1922, WAS A WAR IDEOLOGY. THEY ARGUED THAT THE COUNTRY SHOULD BE GOVERNED BY THE HEROES OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR. THE FASCISTS FOUGHT VIOLENT SOCIALIST BANDS IN THE STREETS OF ITALY’S MAJOR CITIES (NOT SO MUCH A DOCTRINAL CONFLICT AS A REACTION TO THE SOCIALISTS’ OPPOSITION TO THE WAR). THE STREET VIOLENCE WAS NOT A MONOPOLY OF EITHER FASCISTS OR SOCIALISTS, BUT CHARACTERIZED THE WHOLE SOCIETY. INDEED, IT CHARACTERIZED THE WHOLE CONTINENT. REMEMBER THAT THE BOLSHEVIKS HAD SEIZED POWER IN MOSCOW, AND WERE CALLING FOR GLOBAL REVOLUTION. THE ITALIAN LEFT WAS INSPIRED BY THIS REVOLUTIONARY EVENT, AND FASCISM WAS IN PART A RESPONSE TO THIS THREAT.

This newspeak is dangerous to liberty.

Mind control through government propaganda has overshadowed any physical threat to our physical security. We are already in a psychological jail at the mercy of the propaganda ministry.

This is what is meant by benevolent totalitarianism. America has German-style fascism, just without the jackboots.

You don’t have to know that you are a slave to be one. Military occupation is no longer necessary (visibly). Total war goes on against the people all the time. Remember that corporations are also engaged in a corporate repeal of the 2nd Amendment, again with government blessing if not government sanction (see, Obama’s Operation Chokepoint).

Few people ever come to the realism that big government in cooperation with big business (fascism) work together to perpetually extract labor, wealth and liberty from the people.

The key to this conspiracy is to keep the people dependent on the government under what is euphemistically called “public policy.”

COLLAPSE UPDATE: GLOBAL DEBT REACHES 250 TRILLION DOLLARS

I know, this is depressing. Yes, we all know a collapse is coming, but it hasn't really come yet and we'll probably all die before it comes for real. At least that's what some of us hope. Meanwhile, back on Earth, it has just been disclosed that the global debt has hit $250,000,000,000,000. No, it can never be paid and yes, it continues to grow. Not only that, but international bankers who created this money out of thin air, get to charge interest on this debt. Even with low interest rates, it amounts to trillions of dollars every year. You can see why they are not anxious to stop this scam.

So what happens now? There have been many examples of countries getting into debt that cannot be paid. There was post world war 1 Germany where it took a wheel barrow of money to buy a loaf of bread. Then there was Zimbabwe where they were printing 100 trillion dollar notes. In fact, all of the great empires of the past experienced these type of collapses due to excessive debt. Here's what has never happened. A total financial collapse due to debt has never covered the whole world. Thanks to the global economy and tying in all of the central banks around the world, the practice of printing money out of thin air, then immediately charging interest to governments on that currency has doomed us all. This debt continues to build. It will never go down and it will not and cannot ever be paid. There are not enough resources in the world to pay it. It isn't even close.

It's anyone's guess when this will all come crashing down, but I doubt that it will be very long. Once it happens, it will start in a matter of minutes and within hours all of the banks in the world will stop dispensing money. It has to happen that way as the creditors ( those who hold the 250 trillion dollars) will demand their money and since it can't be paid, they will try to seize assets. One can only imagine the world wide chaos that will ensue.

Yeah, I hope it takes many, many years, but then again I hop to stay in good health and live to 200.

Bruce                                 New World Order News
 

As governments raise taxes to cope with their unending spending habits, people are increasingly being forced to supplement their own income with loans. And according to most financial experts, this debt problem is so big that it will usher in a global economic collapse of epic proportions.
According to the Institute of International Finance’s latest Global Debt Monitor, the amount of debt held in the world rose by the biggest amount in two years during the first quarter of 2018. It grew by $8 trillion to hit a new all-time high of $247 trillion, up from $238 trillion as of December 31, 2017.  And that’s up by $30 trillion from the end of 2016.

Global debt is staggering to the point most of it will never be repaid and as governments continue their spending sprees and the debts keep mounting, the future of the economy looks bleak. There is more than enough economic data out there to show there could be an economic collapse and stock market crash in 2018. Bill Gross stated in 2017 that “our highly levered financial system is like a truckload of nitroglycerin on a bumpy road”. One wrong move and the whole thing could blow sky high, wrote the Epic Economist. Once this bubble pops, it will fling the globe into a financial crisis of epic proportions never before seen.

According to Financial Times, it is becoming clear that the global monetary policy is now caught in a debt trap of its own making. Continuing on the current monetary path is ineffective and increasingly dangerous. But any reversal also involves great risks. It stands to reason that the odds of another crisis blowing up will continue to rise. –Ready Nutrition

The Epic Economist also has a video out detailing how all of this came to pass.  It’s easy enough to understand, yet most still can’t get past their own preconceived notions and biases to comprehend that this will be the fault of governments and those who continue to look to rulers or masters to solve their problems.

“It is all about taking money from us and transferring it into government pockets. And then, taking money from government pockets, and transferring it into the hands of the elite. It’s a game that’s been going on for generations and its time for the humanity to say that ‘enough is enough’.” -Epic Economist
The future of the global economy doesn’t look promising based on the vast amount of debt and wealth being transferred from people to their masters.  We are living in economic slavery and until humanity understands that, the only other option is an economic crisis.

It comes as a bit of a surprise the infamous Keneysian economist Bernanke would express concerns over the government’s inability to decrease spending.  But now that he has, will Americans heed the warning and protect themselves against the next financial crisis? –SHTFPlan

There are ways to prepare for a financial crisis, although an ongoing and global crash could complicate things for preppers. But there are still ways to prepare and an open and educated mind is step one.  If you still believe the government and global elites have your best interests in mind, you probably also don’t anticipate a global economic crash, and therefore, are not going to prepare.  For the rest of us, taking on a “prepper’s mindset” will give you the upper hand in any financial crisis.

“If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not.” -Tess Pennington, author of The Prepper’s Blueprint
